The Cespedes Family Barbecast

Because bad luck means nothing to us, Barbecast 13 is here one day before Halloween. We managed to squeeze four guests into one episode. Our special guest this week is Amanda Rykoff, devoted #MUPWATCHer and baseball writer extraordinaire. You can follow her on the Twitterz @amandarykoff. We talked to her about hilariously long extra inning games, stupid World Series narratives, and Yankee Stadium tickets costing more than your house. E-mails were exciting; LITTLE POOP IS BACK. After Amanda, we introduced THE CHRONICLES OF LOVEGLOVE. It's the return of the official minor league pitcher of Cespedes Family Barbecue, Indians right-hander Kieran Lovegrove. Kieran is in the same organization that just changed their Double-A affiliate's team name from the Aeros to the RubberDucks so we obviously asked him about that. If you like happiness, go follow Kieran @Lovegrove19. Instead of baseball talk, you get to hear 15 minutes of us having an emotional breakdown with Jake's mother after the obstruction extravaganza of Game 3. It's intense. And finally, TALES FROM LOGDOG with our good friend Lana Berry. As always. Thanks for listening <3

It's difficult to top last week's ridiculousness, but Barbecast 12 is here featuring our first ever TWO TIME GUEST Paul Sporer. Unfortunately, Paul's first episode way back in August was deleted sooooo we had him on again because we like him. We talked to Paul about HIS Tigers, Jim Leyland, the World Series, and I think some other baseball stuff. Another spectacular e-mail segment included questions about Kelly Vs. Avril, ways to improve Cleveland, Chinese Food and postseason songs. Oh, and Big Poop sent in a brilliant short story about his fictional encounter with Jose Fernandez. Then we interviewed my (Jordan's) roommate Jamie about his dream of being a DH for the rest of his baseball career. Tales from Logdog was messy, but we talked to Lana about the Kanye West proposal among other stuff. Thanks for listening. GO RATE AND REVIEW US ON ITUNES PLEASE. Alright, cool. <3

We asked Lana if she had seen Alison Gold's Chinese Food music video. She said no. We showed it to her and recorded her reaction.

Just when you thought the Barbecast couldn't get any more ridiculous, we had an actual professional baseball player on to talk about things that I don't even want to say here because they are too good to spoil. It's right-hander Kieran Lovegrove, the OFFICIAL MINOR LEAGUE PROSPECT OF CESPEDES FAMILY BARBECUE. We talked to him for an absurdly long time and then edited out most of it for obvious reasons. Oh, and of course Lana showed up again. Our extra long e-mail segment covered the Red Sox' ability to consume alcohol, a ton of Yasiel Puig questions and another masterpiece from Big Poop. We actually talked about baseball for a good while, considering the playoffs are going on...but that quickly dissolved into a discussion about our favorite shirseys. Jake's Varsity Baseball Update is somewhat depressing, as America's Favorite ROOGY is still adjusting to life as a Pitcher Only. This week's show ends with another edition of TALES FROM LOGDOG (Lana again; we can't get rid of her). We had her watch "Chinese Food" for the first time and react to it in real time. It was intense. If you haven't watched Chinese Food yet, please just go do that by clicking here. Chinese Food is also our musical guest because we love chow m-m-m-m-mein. This might be our best episode ever. We hope you enjoy <3

Yeah, we showed some #want and cranked this out in a single afternoon. It's a milestone episode so we got Mike/Mark/Montreal Ferrin of Fringe-Average and MLB Network radio fame. You can follow him @MikeFerrinSXM. We talked about Cuban baseballers, the playoffs, the mid-west, and The Godfather. No e-mails this week, except for one from Big Poop because duh. Baseball talk includes OUR SUPER EXCITING PLAYOFF PICKS. Jake's Varsity Baseball Update is a big one; JAKE IS BECOMING A PITCHER. Tweet us your congratulations and condolences. TALES FROM LOGDOG is back for the second time with our good friend Lana Berry and we discussed this Miley Cyrus Hedgehog parody video and how she survived #DoLoThroDo. We concluded with a nice family friendly story about Scott Spiezio and Chad Bradford. Seriously. Thanks for listening <3
