Episode 048: I Don't Need Books, I Have the Internet

Matthew and Toby commemorate Father’s Day throughout baseball and go around the horn on several topics: (1) evidence that baseballs might be juiced (and the impact it might be having on the rising HR rate), (2) Dusty Baker’s kid Darren, (3) the upcoming debut of “Players Weekend,” and (4) the continuing calamity that is the Nationals’ bullpen.

CNN contributor Doug Heye, a Yankees fan who served as deputy chief of staff for former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, becomes the first official GOP operative on the program. He joins the show to discuss this year's poignant Congressional Baseball Game and why he hopes it's the first of many bipartisan efforts to get some of the hatred out of politics.
