The sultans of swig are back, this time live from Milano’s: the official bar of the podcast. The bad guys are here to pay are dues to Anthony Bourdain, but mainly to send off horrible GM’s Bryan Colangelo and Garth Snow. They do their best to pretend like the Mets don’t exist while kicking back beer and a shot deals. After recording, the guys run into Dan Harmon (Rick and Morty, Community) and have the best off air episode off all time. You should’ve been there.
The guys are back off of their triumphant meet up with Marlins Man to talk to papa bear himself: Jeffrey Paternostro of Baseball Prospectus. Live from the Breslin, Liam and Will gaslight Jeffrey by offering him brunch, but end up chatting him up about Mets, podcasting, prospecting, Peter Alonso, specialty bitters, and of course, Nick Fucking Pivetta. Also, Jeffrey and Liam go head to head in Will’s assbackwards trivia shenanigans for a mystery prize. Segments include “Is it an ace?” and “Better Know A Bar”.
The guys are back, and the Mets podcast is actually mostly sort of taking Mets. Liam and Will discuss Harvey, Matz, Nick Pivetta, Astrubal, Scooby Doo Pa Pa, Nick Pivetta, and more. Then Trevor Stunk drops in for an impromptu late night interview to talk millennial gaming, the Phillies, Nick Pivetta, and host a rousing display of “Let’s remember some guys: early 2010’s Phillies”. Nick Pivetta’s curve is a 6, too bad Liam didn’t pick him up off of the fantasy wire.
After a restless week, the guys are joined by Nick Stellini, fresh off of a Twitter spat with racists and Cleveland sports fans. They talk Jackie Robinson day, Chief Wahoo, the Yankees, the Mets, and Liam’s appendix (RIP). Also, the return of “Better Know A Bar”.
Your least-favorite niche podcast is back. After an inebriated intro recorded from Mets Opening Day, Liam sits down with the notorious Brady Childs of The Dynasty Guru to discuss MLB, fantasy, the fireman bullpen role, pace of play, tv shows, wrestling, and of course, emailing the rival podcast. Enjoy a 3 hour discussion cut down to roughly 2 hours with David Hasselhoff providing awkward transitions to mask the poor editing.
We’re back. Will checks in with Liam, while he’s on the job, outside on Fifth Ave. This is a heavily edited episode and no topic is ever really fleshed out, but the guys talk Mets Spring Training, Jose Valentin, the 102 NRI Ranking List, and 5th Avenue doobie smokers.
