Episode 038: The Most Famous Buttocks in All of Baseball

Matthew and Toby check in on the World Baseball Classic, why Adrian Gonzalez is mad, the waiver wire, a seemingly nonstop spring training injury train, and a controversial new stem cell treatment for UCL injuries. The boys dive into a little bit of history with a chat about Nisei baseball in Japanese internment camps, and John Hagner joins the show for the debut of Benches Clear, in which Battery Mates covers a controversial topic with heated, dugout-emptying debate. This week’s topic is whether MLB should keep tinkering with the rules to shorten the game—and no one came to make friends.
