Kiley welcomes writer Jason Collette from...well, they cover all the outlets you can find his stuff at, including ESPN and Baseball Prospectus. They talk Pirates run prevention and Rays year-to-year similarities somehow both prompting Kiley to share pointless stories from when he worked for teams. They then jump into the condescending game of the week, celebrity name soundalikes and their shared college football depression. The show opens with #HOTSPORTSTAKES with Frankie Piliere of Perfect Game and the guys expand on the industry's thoughts on Jeff Hoffman vs. Carlos Rodon after realizing their obsession with the draft 10 months from now was validated by the awful trade deadline. The show closes with the triumphant return of Rob and/or the continued downfall of America as imagined by Trinidad James.
