That Baseball Show
Join Matthew Melton and Jimmy Bowman as they discuss, debate, and celebrate all things baseball. No over analyzing stats or deep strategics here, just two baseball fans talking about the fun and sometimes ridiculous aspects of the sport.
info_outline TBS 120: MLB Crossing: No (Season On The) Horizon 06/20/2020
TBS 120: MLB Crossing: No (Season On The) Horizon Trust us, we'd prefer (ok, *Matt* would prefer) to talk AC:NH all day but Jimmy did work to breakdown the state of negotiations between the players & owners/league about 2020. So we dive deep into the bad faith and absurdity that prevails in American pro ball right now!
info_outline TBS 119: Jimmy and Me and Swole Daddy Makes Three 05/25/2020
TBS 119: Jimmy and Me and Swole Daddy Makes Three The orchestra's yawning & they're dimming the lights down listeners, so it can only mean one thing- it's the last The Last Dance. We also break down the mascots of the KBO because there isn't much else to cover just now. Enjoy!
info_outline TBS 118: Ballpark Concessions 04/25/2020
TBS 118: Ballpark Concessions Remember a time when you could go to a ballgame without having to rub peanuts in your eyes and pretzels on your face? Sean Hannity remembers, and he's got some tips and tricks for a post-'rona sporting world! We talk about what that world would look like, what it looks like now, and Matt gets away with not addressing the Red Sox cheating!
info_outline TBS 117: Of Manfred and Men 02/20/2020
TBS 117: Of Manfred and Men Join us in the lonely Manfred Mansion as our Dear Commish asks himself why baseball is so bad and plays with the rabbits one last time. We also talk (more) Astros, the Mets clubhouse, Nolan, and (sigh x a billion) Mookie. We're gonna get it through it, gang!
info_outline TBS 116: If The Use Is Fair, You Shouldn't Care 01/24/2020
TBS 116: If The Use Is Fair, You Shouldn't Care One of you managers is responsible for the MURDER of baseball, and we've called you into our parlour to j'accuse you! Is that how you say it? Let us know while we discuss *heavy sigh* sign-stealing, MiLB contraction, and the curious case of Martin Miller.
info_outline TBS 113: Life During Cival Wartime 10/31/2019
TBS 113: Life During Cival Wartime Thanks for tuning into this episode but do keep it down- we are a month into the Umprising & it's pretty dicey out there. Keep your heads down while we cover (some of) the World Series, Trump's visit to Nationals Park, the Astros front office, & postseason manager moves.
info_outline TBS 113: Gary's Last Ride 10/05/2019
TBS 113: Gary's Last Ride Ah Gary, thanks for coming in. We appreciate everything you've done Gary, but it's time for you to be plugged into a weird action movie from the 90's. Consider that as Jimmy & Matt talk pre/postseason predictions, King Felix, MadBum, coach firings and beefs. Also sorry we talk about dog butts.
info_outline TBS 112: My Stupid Team: Rockies w/Geoff Renstrom! 09/05/2019
TBS 112: My Stupid Team: Rockies w/Geoff Renstrom! This episode was recorded in Denver with our good friend fellow Rox fan Geoff, so we decided what better time to turn Jimmy's weekly grousing into another MST installment. We also talk gas station boner pills (like a lot, CW here), exciting rookies, and Catholic blasphemy (CW here too I guess).
info_outline TBS 110: Rawkin Cheah Saves 07/04/2019
TBS 110: Rawkin Cheah Saves We just want to get out ahead of this; this episode does NOT hinge largely on re-naming a certain minor league team after a fish. Having now said that legally you can't say it does. We also talk London Series, Cookie Monster, the Mets, and a break in the Ortiz case!
info_outline TBS 109: The Stickball Funnies 06/21/2019
TBS 109: The Stickball Funnies Old-timey salutations, TBS Nation! We've overcome what I would describe as "significant technical setbacks" to bring you this new ep, wherein we discuss David Ortiz, Muncy v. MadBum, Pillar's slaying slide, and umpire/player Twitter relations.
info_outline TBS 108: The Fall of Cartilage 06/03/2019
TBS 108: The Fall of Cartilage Whether you mark time in clips, grips or hot minutes, we're back! Jimmy and Matt uncover candidates for Worst Walk-off & First Pitch, Fortnite ballpark cam dances, praise Buckner & Pedroia (but only bury one), & talk Vladito & other 90's player scions. Listen & be restored!
info_outline Tin Cuck w/Mike Sharp! 05/06/2019
Tin Cuck w/Mike Sharp! Matt's on the bench this week, so what better time than now for a make-up recording with friend of the podcast Mike Sharp! We discuss Mike's career as a T-ball coach, Tim Anderson's very good bat flips and Vladito and Harper while staying away from Cal Ripken's wife.
info_outline TBS 106: TBS Live: The Great Debate(s)! 04/18/2019
TBS 106: TBS Live: The Great Debate(s)! This week's episode was recorded LIVE at Treefort Music Fest in Boise, Idaho on March 22, 2019. Joining us this ep is our pal Melissa Davlin from IPTV, who moderated our debate built entirely on listener-generated topics. Thanks to her & everyone who attended our show, & to Storyfort for having us!
info_outline TBS 105: 2019 Presents and Predictions 04/04/2019
TBS 105: 2019 Presents and Predictions Jimmy and Matt are the worst gift-givers ever- instead of fun Opening Day presents, they got each other all the infuriating things we have to ignore to enjoy this season in a real reverse-Magi situation. We make over/under picks, predict division finishes, and talk bullpen meltdowns. Also hoops?
info_outline The Bryce Is Right 03/07/2019
The Bryce Is Right We were really worried about the state of baseball free agency until 2 guys signed deals, now everything is good forever! Let's make a fancy chicken dish to celebrate. We also talk Trout, CC/Jessica Mendoza and the conflicted nature of sports journalism. Delicious!
info_outline Bear Enthusiasm w/Danielle Sauers! 01/10/2019
Bear Enthusiasm w/Danielle Sauers! Happy New Year Nation! We kick 2019 off with special guest and our bestest friend Danielle Sauers from CubsDen to talk minor league baseball, free agency, garbage plates, and weird aggression toward baseball fandom. Also wizard poop I guess?
info_outline My Stupid Team: Mariners w/Zack Evans 12/15/2018
My Stupid Team: Mariners w/Zack Evans This week we have Zack Evans of the @WrestleboysCast for another installment of My Stupid Team, covering those losers for whom our love is undetermined: The Mariners! Also we meant Art Lafleur not Ed O'Neill, & we talk airline food at the 3:00 mark but it got cut off. Also HoF and Babe Ruth!
info_outline The Deathball Era 12/01/2018
The Deathball Era On this special episode we hand out our annual awards that we've never handed out before! We also revisit preseason over/unders, mourn a gaudy statue, bid on Bryce and swerve into 10 minutes or so of Space Jam. Also we say something bad about Mitch McConnell (let the SEO pour!).
info_outline Drewber Eats w/Jason Haskins 11/02/2018
Drewber Eats w/Jason Haskins Hey Past Matt, it's Future Matt here to tell you the Red Sox won! Enjoy your chat with Jason Haskins of Chowder and Champions about how the World Series is going, the role of openers, and whether Manny Machado is stealing signs and enjoy watching Game 5!
info_outline Beanballs Beget Beanballs 10/23/2018
Beanballs Beget Beanballs Woe that these days should be ours, trapped in an endless cycle of beanball retaliations! When will the killing stop? Host Emeritus Cody joins Matt on-mic this week to discuss MLB crime and punishment, Gritty and Khris Davis, and we check in on our favorite worst person on Twitter.
info_outline IMDBB 09/24/2018
IMDBB That's a nice podcast you have here. We're big fans and we want to make sure you get it, but this is a negotiation, y'know? What's in it for us? While you think about a price, we'll chat about announcer brawls, Todd Frazier's trick ball, Papa Yellich, Jacob DeGrom and Brandon McCarthy's Prestige.
info_outline The Assassination of Ronald Acuna Jr. By The Coward Jose Urena 09/04/2018
The Assassination of Ronald Acuna Jr. By The Coward Jose Urena Happy end of summer TBS Nation! We cover a lot of ground in this one, including more manager meltdowns, Verlander's expensive breakfast, Morales, Bautista, thrilling walk-offs, and the Washington fire (sale). Pledge drive tote bags sold separately!
info_outline Shantn't We Dance? 08/15/2018
Shantn't We Dance? Are you prepared for this new episode? Because we certainly were not, even more so than usual. And doubly unprepared for the most horrific MiLB mascot and worst umpiring we've ever seen. We also talk racist Twitter and minor-league shenanigans if that's your thing.
info_outline The Golden Ticket Factory 07/19/2018
The Golden Ticket Factory Matt and Jimmy are back, and they have one question for you: Do you have any hats you aren't using? We find ourselves...short. While you check your stock, we'll be discussing The All-Star Game and HRD, Mike Matheny, 19-run games and Mark Reynolds' best week ever!
info_outline Ladies Love the Long Ball...J (LLLBJ) 06/08/2018
Ladies Love the Long Ball...J (LLLBJ) Don't call it a comeback! Or do, it's been about a month I suppose. As far as baseball goes, we talk geese and other animals, this week in dirty slides, hard-hitting draft analysis, and those good good relievers.
