The major league season is coming to and end, but we're still podcasting. After going through your emails, we talk about how we kind of sort of have playoff races and then dive into a new feature where for the next six weeks we'll spend around five minutes on every system in baseball, going in reverse alphabetical order. Then we are joined by Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe to talk about the Red Sox slide, and it's onto the goofy stuff with a quick rant about the state of discourse with the release of Moneyball this weekend. As always, we hope you enjoy.

Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language and subject matter. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Updating the "Under 2 Hours" list from Episode 64's comments:

Here's a list of all 12 under-two-hour Episodes, according to the time on the BP Podcast post for each Episode, in order of increasing time:

Episode 2 (1:18:59)
Episode 64 (1:29:13)
Episode .9 (1:29:51)
Episode 67 (1:30:30)
Episode 51 (1:40:11)
Episode 43 (1:43:10)
Episode 41 (1:43:41)
Episode 8 (1:45:54)
Episode 11 (1:52:49)
Episode 6 (1:57:21)
Episode 34 (1:57:34)
Episode 3 (1:58:58)

As you can see, this is the first time since Episodes 41 and 43 that two such short episodes came out so close to each other.

(Technically speaking, Episode 28.1 is the shortest ever (18:46), but since it did not follow the typical format, I excluded it from this analysis. YMMV.)
I look forward to our Wikipedia page with all of this info.
How much time did you spend on this?
CRP, I don't have the link off hand, but there is a page that exists with all the episodes, their length, and a DL button. I would guess it took him less than 5 minutes.
I wish I had known about that page, as I actually just went through each separate post using the handy "last _______" link at the bottom.

Only took me about 30 minutes.
Rainy day activity: develop Google Doc of Up and In index (noting each episode where "X" is discussed, or talked to, or played (musicians)). I see it as a crowd-sourced document.

This is not that day though.
