This week, the boys talk about some of the weirder stories of our dearly departed firebrand, Alex Rodriguez. It’s good.
The kids wake from a long nap to discover they’ve missed a couple weeks of baseball news. They discuss the legend of A-Rod, haircuts, broken teeth, then they build an Olympic team to represent all baseball players. Good times.
Josh and Daniel hand out awards to some of baseball’s most deserving, and some would argue, undeserving players, teams, and ejections. It truly is a star-studded event.
Who are you wearing?
Cody Dale Edgar is hilarious, and he loves baseball and absurdity. That makes him the perfect Throwing Junk guest. The boys talk about their favorite baseball moments and new ideas for All-Star skills competitions. Baseball Fight Derby, anyone?
The boys get real weird here. Like, new depths. Essentially, if you want to know which mascots really get Josh’s engine revving, this is the episode is for you. I love you, Buffalo Bell.
The boys talk jazz, the Astros, a historically bad outing, and grandparents.
Then hear us play a game of “A Song of Ice and Minors” as Daniel guests on Josh’s other podcast: The Stacks! Two podcasts in one download? We must have lost it!
Daniel and Josh talk about Tupac, arguing on the internet, the ’97 Cleveland Indians, Ichiro v Pete Rose: Dawn of (David) Justice, Tampa Bay Rays fauxback jerseys, and a ton of other stuff this episode. It’s pretty good, I think.
It’s draft time again, and Daniel and Josh have decided to pull together two of the world’s greatest baseball teams from the world of horror. We all know the world of horror is, in a lot of ways, just like the world of your day to day life.
It gets weird. That’s what you tune in for, right? Weird baseball.
The boys get into it about video games, Randy Newman, pranks, and knives. Sorry about last week, we’re working on it.
Eric Aybar chokes on bones, Johnny Cueto is delightful, the Rangers want a new stadium, Daniel brushes up on his Spanish, and Josh invents grease fire-based HVAC. It was a pretty productive week for Throwing Junk.
The boys Zapruder the heck out of Jose Bautista and Rougned Odor and take you back to the origin of that widely talked-about dustup between the Rangers and Blue Jays.
They also dive into the sci-fi vs. fantasy debate, New Orleans, and Curt Schilling’s racist ass.
Back and to the left.
In episode one, Josh and Daniel discuss the Arizona Diamondbacks’ “adventurous” new fashion choices, the misadventures of Astrojack and Astrodillo, the origin of the term “Humm baby, hoagie time,” the Fresno Tacos, and Scott Stapp.
Baseball is fun.
Episode 2 is here! Now featuring structure!
Today, the boys talked about Jose Altuve, ghost hunting, Buffs Stadium, walk-up music, and Hungarian coal riots, confused Alanis Morissette with Sheryl Crow, and tried to come up with a mascot for the podcast. It’s pretty solid, altogether.
Our intro music, which we could not remember, is “Keg Baseball” by Centz.
Also, as it turns out, Levi Walker, Jr. is in fact a Native American. Our apologies.
