The 2019 Red Sox have finally been eliminated from playoff contention as we are joined by a surprising guest considering the history of this show: Drew Pomeranmz. Before the Dwew interview we talk Jared's trip to Milwaukee and his worst Uber ride of all time, the Sox struggling to find a new GM, and take a trip down memory lane with all the negative things that have been said about Drew Pomeranz on this show. In the Pomeranz interview we talk how confusing it was when he was dealt to Boston, difference between playing in San Diego compared to Boston, the wild ways people would find to tell Drew he sucks, biggest differences between John Farrell and Alex Cora as managers, Jared reads a mean tweet he posted about Drew in the past and gets his reaction, the experience of being on the World Series roster but not pitching, what worked best for him in an impressive 2017 season, his preference between relieving and starting, and what he thinks went wrong with this Red Sox team. After the interview we move over to the KFC Radio studio to talk how weird it was to see the Sox get eliminated while Mitch Moreland hit a game-tying home run in the 9th, Yankees fans flipping out over an AL East title, highest point of the season for the team and the podcast, Brock staying the greatest with his IG comments on our posts, and close by teasing the Section 10 Awards Show coming up later this week.

We open talking about the Suns because this is the best Suns podcast on the planet, we recap how well the livestream went Friday even though the game sucked, and then we recap that miserable series in the Bronx. We're talking how brutal the Sox have been when Sale and Price start, how no realistic deadline move would have prevented this losing streak, how we expected this terrible play from the 2015 team but there being no excuse for a team this talented to lose 8 in a row, and the Sox somehow still having a 2% chance to win the World Series. This is a tough one folks, be sad with us. Go Suns
We will get to how pathetic it is that the Sox made ZERO moves at the deadline in a minute, but in Part II of our sit-down from Curt Schilling's house we talk things that he regrets saying during his playing days, the creation of 'Why Not Us' and which media member that phrase was aimed at, if the 2007 World Series title would have happened without the 2004 team winning it all, revisiting the A-Rod brawl with a breakdown of everything that happened and how much the team hated A-Rod, how much he loves the retirement lifestyle, young pitchers in the game that he helps out now, potentially wanting to rejoin the game as a pitching coach, hardest guys he ever faced and the only two strikeout baseballs he ever saved, and all the aspects that go into being a truly successful pitcher in the majors. We then flip the hell out over the Sox adding NOTHING at the trade deadline, the Astros being the very clear favorite to represent the AL in the World Series now, what we would have tweaked about Rick Porcello's feud with the TVs in the dugout, a brief visit from Willie Colon for Jared to pay him his $1K, and close with some optimism by saying we still think this team will make the Wild Card Game.

Our guy Joe Kelly is once again on the podcast today to distract us from the fact that the Red Sox just lost a series to the friggin Orioles. With Jimmy B we talk how different it is playing in LA vs. Boston, how much he meant to the bullpen during that World Series run last year, if there was legitimate doubt to if he would even make the postseason roster, how much easier his day-to-day life is being home in LA, if his big strikeout late in Game 5 of the World Series was the top highlight of his career so far, how much he wanted to strike out Tyler Austin when he faced him again, how the free agency process went, and his favorite moments in Boston with a recap of that fight with the Yankees.

Then we get to our Andrew Benintendi interview where we talk his nicknames and which one he hears the most in the clubhouse, the epic catch he made in the ALCS, his favorite moment of the 2018 postseason that wasn't that catch or the final out, how frustrated he is over his current season, favorite moment from the parade, power ranking the drunkest players at the parade and much more.

We open talking what went wrong in that 4-game series in Oakland, continue to bitch about how stupid it is that this team starts the season with an 11-game west coast road trip, debate who is most to blame for this tough start, and break down that bizarre mixup in the outfield with JBJ and Mookie. We then rip into interleague play for a random reason, convince ourselves why we shouldn't be worried about Chris Sale's lack of velocity, try to figure out what's wrong with E-Rod, recap Jared turning 30 out in Oakland, and tease a future pod with Wally. We wrap this gem up with your voicemail questions and Down in the DMs. Enjoy!
