Podcast: Pointless Exercise Year-end roundtable
The most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together since Jim Hendry dined alone
For the first time ever, all of your favorite Pointless Exercise Podcast hosts are in one place at the same time as David Brown, Mike Pusateri, Mike Donohue and Andy Dolan sit down to discuss the year in sports and veer off into all kinds of related and unrelated topics.
They discuss timely things like Abe Gibron slow roasting a pig, how Lonzo Ball killed the entire year in Chicago sports, Nick Madrigal's exciting future, the Cubs awkward flirtation with the luxury tax, and guys kicking the ball from the outfield to the infield.
How baseball's defensive rules might introduce blitzing to the game...finally! The parallels between Dansby Swanson and other great Chicago shortstops.
You'll see how every podcast with Mike D. eventually becomes a Remember This Crap. What stage of spring training will the Dodgers cut Jason Heyward?
Captain America. Rick Monday. Faulty sports memories and what role Al Toon and Mitch Williams play in them.
Is MPH on throws during games any kind of way to evaluate defensive players? The return of Hub Arkush. All that and much, much, more.
