The Poscast Episode 5 - Numbers Game

Joe Posnanski and Michael Schur (Fire Joe Morgan, Parks & Recreation, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) both believe that the NL will be led by either this year’s aspiring superteam in Los Angeles, or last year’s aspiring superteam in Washington.  They admire the San Antonio Spurs-like continual success of the Cardinals.  They see the AL as more of a tossup.  Schur picks the Dodgers to beat the Tigers in the World Series.  Poz predicts the Nationals over the Red Sox.

Then, they draft numbers.

The Poscast with Joe Posnanski and Michael Schur - Ep. 1 - We’re Back

Now that Poz is with NBC, a Parks & Rec guest spot seems inevitable!

• Red Sox winning the World Series: Both agree that distinguishing World Series winners by whether the winner played the final game at home is not a thing.  Michael is a Red Sox fan, so he’s happy they won!

• Instant replay: They like the concept of more replays, dislike the “challenge” system.

• “Nickname” draft:

Poz - Earvin “Magic” Johnson
Schur - Walter “Sweetness” Payton
Poz - James “Cool Papa” Bell
Schur - Wayne “The Great One” Gretzky
Poz - “Mean” Joe Greene
Schur - Darryl “Chocolate Thunder” Dawkins
Poz - Walt “No Neck” Williams
Schur - William “Refrigerator” Perry
Poz - Elroy “Crazy Legs” Hirsch
Schur - Charles “The Round Mound of Rebound” Barkley
