In Episode 79, Jeffrey and Craig chat about being Coffee Dads and then discuss five mostly baseball topics.

1. Who Doesn’t Want It Least: The NL playoff race is a mess, y’all

2. Around the Horn: A wide catcher has a good game, a Yankees lawyer is on the case, a Mets GM returns to Queens, and we say good bye to Cole Hamels and Ron Gardenhire (and the Tigers rebuild?)

3. Jeff Has Been Very Disrespectful: The Nolan Arenado saga continues and we try and fail again to figure out what the Rockies are doing.

4. Three-batter Minimal Effect: tl;dr Just institute a pitch clock.

5. A Look Ahead: The AL Central is on the line, and a requisite Sixto mention.
