We start wrapping up the site’s first year with Alex Crisafulli, Eric Roseberry, Ryan Sullivan, and Ken Maeda, discussing the big pitcher signings, Dusty Baker, and Coach Bonds. Then they get into their fan origin stories, an encounter with Ben Lindbergh, and the biggest post of the Banished era thus far. (Recorded on Saturday.)

Mike Ferrin, formerly of Fringe Average and currently of MLB Network Radio, joins Ryan Sullivan to talk about the legacy of the Up and In podcast, and weighs in on the Mets, Yankees. Nationals, and Orioles.

Staff writers Darius Austin and Paul Cline talk to Brandon Lee about Bryce Harper, Stephen Strasburg, Tim Lincecum, shortening the season, and baseball memories. The guys also discuss Effectively Wild’s Webb-Albers Championship Fantasy League, and play a round of “Guess the B-Ref Player Sponsorship Price.”

Staff writer Andrew Patrick and Baseball Prospectus writer Matt Trueblood join Ryan Sullivan to talk all the baseball: the red-hot Mets, the A’s-Royals feud, and Carter Capps’ special delivery. Also discussed are Matt’s experiences as a new writer for Baseball Prospectus, and each guest’s favorite baseball memories.
