The Baseball Show with Rany and Joe - 6/19/12

Rany Jazayerli and Joe Sheehan’s podcast is back after a long hiatus. 

Subjects include:

- The phall of the Phillies
- The rise of the Nationals (Sheehan: “Pitcher abuse is like polio.  It doesn’t exist anymore.”)
- The seemingly-good-enough-ness of the White Sox (Sheehan: “Don Cooper is the second guy I would follow into war, behind Sean Forman.”)
- The WTF?-ness of the Dodgers (Jazayerli: “I’m not prepared to live in a world where Ned Colletti is actually brilliant and we’re all the morons.”)
- Anticipating Tim Collins vs. Jose Altuve (Sheehan: “If that happens and the crowd doesn’t start chanting ‘LET THEM PLAY!’, I’ll be surprised.”)

Don Cooper is the second guy I would follow into war, behind Sean Forman.

Is this really an actual quote?

Why, has it not occurred to you before to raise a nerd army?
