We bounce around the weekend in baseball news and series, including a very entertaining series between the White Sox and Cubs in which the White Sox proved they’re approaching the Cubs’ level (1:04). Then, we invite on Padres radio play-by-play announcer Jesse Agler to discuss what it was like to cover all the worst San Diego teams from 2014 to now, and how different it feels now that the Padres are both good and electrifying (19:12). Finally, we chat with Twins pitcher Randy Dobnak on his utterly bizarre journey to leading the majors in wins, before wrapping with Sorry for Your Mentions and our baseball moment of joy for the week (43:25).

Hosts: Jake Mintz and Jordan Shusterman
