Podcast: How well do we really know what baseball fans think?
This is The StewPod, our baseball podcast with a dash of pop culture. If you dig the show, please subscribe and review us on iTunes.
There’s almost nothing more entertaining than a baseball survey. OK, maybe a Bartolo Colon home run. But getting peoples’ opinions about baseball in survey form is a lot of fun — and often surprising, as it was on Thursday when Public Policy Polling, a well-known political poller, released its annual sports survey.
And believe us, it asked the important questions. What do people think about bat flips? And the DH? Should Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens be in the Hall of Fame? Oh yeah, good ol’ divisive baseball topics.
So on this week’s StewPod, we had some fun going through the survey and trying to see how well Chris could predict the survey results. We’re also joined by Bad News Ramen for another installment of Three Strikes, and we talk about Bryce Harper’s suspension, Bartolo’s big homer and important questions about cheating, thought not necessarily with performance-enhancing drugs.
Here’s a rundown of this week’s show:
• Wait, you can’t yell at umpires now?
• The magical Bartolo Colon
• The Baseball Survey: America’s favorites teams, players, bat flips, DHs, the Hall of Fame and more
• Three Strikes with Bad News Ramen
• Important question: When did you cheat?
