Alex Kielar | March 27th, 2020 

We continue our series looking back in time on each day in baseball history. Without new baseball, we will look back in history until the season finally does start. I had Nick Jehamy on again for this episode, as we talked about when the Los Angeles Dodgers were sold to Magic Johnson and all the way back when and how the Chicago Cubs got their name.

Too Much Pod Tar Podcast: Quarantine Life

Alex Kielar | March 25th, 2020

In this one, the regular co-hosts as we’re gonna call it, Alex Kielar and Johnnie Black, are joined by “Buck-Guys Talk Podcast” host Daniel Corrigan. They try to brighten things up a bit by finding several interesting topics to talk about.

Utilitarianism, When Two Sports Clash, and the Dude Who Played an NBA Game and Never Got Paid for It

“The pupil who is never required to do what he cannot do, never does what he can do.”

One thing that’s always intrigued me about sports is the dying phenomenon of the multi-sport athlete at the professional level.

While sports, in general, are beginning to largely ditch specialists in favor of utilitarians, the greatest form of a utilitarian (no, I’m obviously not talking about John Stuart Mill) is no longer a thing. Continue reading

The reigning National League Central Champions will try to win back-to-back divisions since the 2014-15 seasons.

2019 Summary

The 2019 season was an overall success, finishing 97-65 and winning their second straight National League East title. However, they lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Divisional Series 3-2, their tenth straight postseason series that ended in a loss. While the team floundered yet again in the postseason, it returns this season with their young core still very much intact and with another season under their belts.
