In Episode 84 Emma and Craig discuss five mostly baseball topics.

1. The Bad Guys Are Winning?: Our producer explains the different types of wrestling heels, and why does Billy Beane‘s shit still not work in the playoffs?

2. Super Dave Roberts: Despite what Craig says at the outset, he does not in fact keep this segment short.

3. Okay, Craig was right about the Marlins: A sweep for the Braves, and we consider if they have the best starting pitching left in the playoffs.

4. A Pirates life wasn’t for me: Cole and Glasnow face off to decide the last Championship Series team.

5. A look ahead: What’s our preferred World Series matchup, along with some CS predictions.
