The Cespedes Family Barbecast
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

It's just another Manic Monday, which means Barbecast 9 is here to be consumed by some undetermined number of humans. Our special guest is Stevo Sama of death metal fame and fortune as well as his baseball knowledge. You can see some rather vile pictures of Stevo below. He was fantastic and we had no idea what references he was making the whole time. Follow him @yoshiki89. He also bLOLgs about basebLOL at http://xtrabasehit.blogspot.com/. Excuse the plus-plus technical difficulties. Our e-mails include the return of Little Poop, a discussion about our baseball cabinet and debating freedom...or something. Baseball talk includes a long discussion about tiebreakers and our ideas to improve them and make them more entertaining. This of course is significantly less relevant now that the three-way tie can't happen, but it's still a fun discussion mostly revolving around Tropicana Field. Our new segment is TALES FROM LOGDOG featuring everyone's favorite, Lana Berry. We talked for like five minutes and it was almost funny. Thanks for listening <3

EPISODE OCHO has arrived and it is probably my favorite episode we've ever done. Our super special guest is Lana Berry. If you don't know who that is then you aren't reading this because you couldn't possibly be on the Internet. You can follow Lana @lana but you already knew that. We talked for way too long about Lance Berkman, advice for college, and other baseball related nonsense #followlogdog. Our e-mail segment was longer than ever and we got some good ones. Topics included the Amish Red Sox (see below), Old Man Jake, annoying spelling rules and family Poop talk. Baseball talk was brief due to reasons explained during the podcast. Our musical guest is ALL OF THE IPHONE RINGTONES. No, seriously. Enjoy and thanks for listening <3

It's here a week after we recorded it but fuck it, we're in college and have other things to do besides edit podcasts! It's Barbecast 7 with emergency special guest Chris Rodriguez of Baseball Prospectus. He is barely legal and you can follow him at @chrisrod13 (#FollowCrod). We talked about shitty California League parks and other things almost baseball.  Our e-mails obviously included Andrelton and Big Poop. Just your average Barbecast. Oh and for about three minutes we all thought there was a minor league team in Tuscaloosa. We talked about other stuff but I don't remember what it was because it was a week ago. Enjoy!

It's the sixth Cespedes Family Barbecast and this one got pretty graphic. We talked to Wendy Thurm (@hangingsliders on the Tweeterz) about Barry Bonds, conflicting fanhoods and Raul Ibanez...but mostly just about Jew stuff. Our e-mails covered hot dog eating contests, baseball raps and obviously Big Poop. Baseball talk was all about the weird trades that went down. I can't remember anything else and it's almost 2 AM soooooooo here's the Barbecast. Oh, and our music this week is only the greatest song of all time. Thanks for listening <3

COLLEGE DUDES. So we went to college and we decided that on the first saturday afternoon of college there was nothing better to do than to do a baseball podcast. Lucky for you we created this bad boy right here. We talk to Al Chimmichanga of clevelandfan.com and dietribe.com because we wanted to. We touched [...]

It's the third episode of the Barbecast sponsored by Jordan's 11 year old brother David. Our musical guest this week is unfortunately Jake on the piano again, but we improvised and came up with a fantastic melody for you all to enjoy during the breaks. The e-mails were far from plentiful but they were most definitely interesting; we talked about improved names for home runs, what the ultimate player would look like, and the most important question anyone can ask regarding Mike Trout, Bryce Harper and Giancarlo Stanton. Our special guest is Zach Mortimer (#FollowMort #SingleMortDays) from the press box in Wilmington, Delaware. We talked a bit of baseball and then Mort gave us incredibly emotional advice for our soon-to-be college lives. Baseball talk was limited because we wanted to play MVP Baseball 2004. Thanks for listening <3
