The World’s Greatest Online Magazine Presents The Half-Baked Podcast: 10. (Part 2): Technically Hours Later

This time: the Twins!

First, we have a quick Fantasy Update* (thanks again to @velcrojared for the theme). Please let us know everyone's names (and smash that like button) because we're very confused.

Then, we forced ourselves to move onto the Twins. We take a quick look at season, have a brief overview of offseason goals, discuss next year's rotation (including some discussion of a weird pitching strategy of nibbish and DK's (hmm, maybe we'll talk about that more someday)), and then go over some hard truths about position players.

Thankfully, we discovered it's a lot more fun to talk about fun teams, so we go over our predictions (and hopes) for the playoffs. To give you an idea of how much credence you should give us, our first prediction is very wrong!

*I should note that ben's bens were actually tied for 1st place in the baseball league. The league page has him noted as both tied for 1st or in 2nd. However, you're first in our book, ben. Congratulations to the co-champions (and sorry for the omission)!

The World’s Greatest Online Magazine Presents The Half-Baked Podcast: 10. (Part 1): The Thrill

Hey gang! Well, we tried to record this in full, but schedules are complicating things (nibbish got a new puppy or something I don't know). Anyway, DK, DG, and I were able to get in some quick Wild talk as Kaprizov is now safely a member of the Wild for the next few years. We also look at other signings, the draft, and the year ahead. We go to break at the end of the episode, which hopefully means we'll pick it up again sometime soon. Enjoy!

The World’s Greatest Online Magazine Presents The Half-Baked Podcast: 08.5: Quarter Baked

Okay, so the first half of this podcast is still in the shop. We talked about the Wild and their future in that part, and hopefully we can get that fixed up soon.

The second half, which did survive unfortunately, was all about the Twins. Oh, and we feature some songs from the Summer Mix (which is soooooo good).

The World’s Greatest Online Magazine Presents The Half-Baked Podcast: 08. Abject Despair

Hey, gang. There's not much fun Twins talk, so Daneeka's Ghost came back to discuss the Wild before they go into the playoffs. We all know how this will end, but we wanted to keep things as bright and shiny as possible.

We unfortunately did not have the constitution to keep up the rosiness when we did actually get to the Twins, but it needed to be discussed anyway. So we did, and that was... yeah.

Music is always good though, and here are the video's we discussed:
