#6 | HALF (Heckles Acknowledge by Left Fielder): Hecklers, An Epic Mets Gripe, and Chris Sale's 12 K(haki Poopy)s

5/21/2019
More
This week, the thing Nick, Jordan, and Dave love about baseball is hecklers! We talk Carlos Zambrano the Designated Hitter, Edwin Jackson making it to his 15th team, and Enemy of the Pod Gerardo Parra on this week's Love/Hate/Meh. We also do mostly entirely subjective NBA to MLB comparisons, and we give the mic over to Nick for a Mets rant so epic it makes us wonder if we shouldn't have just been a Mets podcast. The other baseball podcast we shout out this week is The Ravine Report, the...

We also discuss whether Joey Gallo is a stud or scrub, the time BEES interrupted a Giants Reds game, and we have our first ever interview with Ang, the creator of both the cover art for Leadoff Grand Slam and the mind behind the marvelous Acceptably Drawn Baseball Twitter account (@drawawalk). The other baseball podcast we shout out this week is The Infinite Inning, the...

More
Content Warning: We discuss domestic violence during this week's pod. Discretion advised. This week, the thing Nick, Jordan, and Dave love about baseball is complete games! We also discuss why the Rays are so good - spoiler alert: it's not just because the Red Sox suck and the Yankees are injured - Addison Russell's return to baseball and why that sucks major ass for anyone who cares about the rights of abuse victims, we field the All “About to Declare their Candidacy for 2020” Team, and we...

#3| Monster Energy Energy: Call Ups, Vladito, and the The Worst Walkup Music

5/1/2019
More
This week, the thing Dave, Jordan, and Nick love about baseball is call ups! We exult in the arrival of our dreadlocked lord and savior, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., dream on the infinite potential of call ups for young prospects - and the noble chance for an old timer to get one more major league hit - and try to decide who has the worst walkup music. We also field the All Dads team - two teams actually, old dads and young cool dads. The other baseball podcast we shout out this week is the...

#2 | Sign Caig Kringel: Ejections, Tim Anderson, and Should Third Basemen Shave Broadcasters?

4/30/2019
More
This week, the thing Nick, Jordan, and Dave love about baseball is ejections! We talk about Tim Anderson and Brad Keller's ejections - bulls**t and a different kind of bulls**t, respectively - whether the Red Sox are actually bad, if the White Sox are cool - and what even makes a team cool? We also wonder whether Pete Alonso is a Large Adult Son® and ask Dave what made Manny Machado's bare-handed play at third so great because Dave was a real-life baseball player. We also wonder whether the...

More
Our first episode! Well actually our second, we recorded a test episode with like iPhone headphones to confirm that we actually wanted to do a podcast - *narrator voice* they did - and then we had to rename THAT episode episode 0, and it was a whole thing. ANYWAY. For their inaugural episode, the thing Jordan, Nick, and Dave love about baseball is the first week of baseball season! We dream on what would happen if the playoffs were tomorrow, we do our first All-Team with the All-Heels and...

Introducing Leadoff Grand Slam, the podcast about what we love about baseball

4/30/2019
More
Jordan Ryan Pedersen is a freak who got into baseball at the age of 31 and lives for Sabermetrics, Dave played third base all the way into college and is a hyper-traditionalist, and Nick Lerangis is a perpetually disappointed Mets fan who's somewhere in between. And they want to tell you all the things they love about baseball, in a time when people are oh-so-eager to tell you why baseball sucks. This is Leadoff Grand Slam.
