We made it to Episode 100! Thanks you all of you that have listened throughout the years and here's to many more!
In a show plagued by technical difficulties, John, Josh, and Vince get some playoff opinions on the table for the final 3 and 4 in the four major leagues as well as some big picture discussion.
We apologize for the technical difficulties. For those that were watching the live stream they witnessed it in person but essentially what happened was for seemingly no reason whatsoever the recording software suddenly stopped picking up everyone besides Vince. After trying a few fixes and work arounds live on air we decided to just roll on with the podcast to finish out the last 15 or so minutes. It turns out that was corrupted too. I'll be trying to figure out what went wrong for next week but we didn't want to let this recording go to waste either given the time sensativity of the subject matter.
