YankeesOutfield.JPGRecorded Aug 16, 2017. Skip is back from vacation and the guys catch up after not having spoken for over a week.  Josh actually read a book and also feels compelled to correct some things he said in the last couple of episodes. Eventually the conversation turns to sports, specifically baseball where the guys ask: Does it always make sense to acquire players at the deadline? How good are the Dodgers? Can anyone take Giancarlo Stanton’s contract? Are all new records and great performances now in doubt because of potential PEDs? Is there such a thing as the curse of the homerun derby? How awesome is Bryce Harper’s hair? How exactly did the guys decide who’s name came first in the show title?
