MLBeers Episode 9, Chatting with Friends. 5/3/2017

On this week’s episode, instead of the going through the rigorous but joyful grind of the baseball season, Phillip and Andrew took a breather and called in some friends of the podcast to have a round-table discussion about baseball and beer.

The guests for the round-table discussion are Alex Workman and Brian Plumley.

Alex works in the business world but he has a fiery passion for brewing. He has one of his own brews at Crane Brewing Company in Raytown, Missouri called “Junipucker” . Of course being a Kansas City boy, he loves his Royals. If you want to get in contact with or want to know more about Alex, he has a twitter at @scoutingthetaps, a Facebook page Scouting the Taps, and a website named Scouting the Taps

Brian is working on his Masters degree but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have time for baseball and brew. Former military but always been an avid fan of the San Diego Padres. And the only thing that should be called “Golden Knights” is the Army Parachute Team (if you listen, you’ll figure out what we are talking about). If you want to get in contact with or want to know more about Brian, he has a twitter at @senorlumpy.

Here is the first of many Historical Showdowns. The 1997 Florida Marlins v the 1996 New York Yankees.

Little description of each team.

1997 Florida Marlins: In 1996, the Marlins were just under .500. In 1997, they became World Series Champions with a 92-70 record. The team was full of stars; Gray Sheffield, Bobby Bonilla, Livan Hernandez, Jeff Conine, and many others. They beat the National League powerhouse Atlanta Braves in the NLCS then winning the World Series over the Cleveland Indians, with a Edgar Renteria grounder up the middle in the eleventh inning. After that season, the Marlins had a fire sale, giving up stars for big money and prospects. Were in the cellar of the Division until 2003…

1996 New York Yankees: The Yankees were in a title drought. They haven’t won it all since 1978. The year before ended a 13-year playoff drought. At the start of the season, they hired Joe Torre as Manager of the team. Also, they had abundance of veteran presence; Tino Martinez, Wade Boggs, Darryl Strawberry, Tim Raines, Dwight Gooden, and David Cone. But this year was the start of legendary “Core Four”. Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera, and Jorge Posada were on the team. The Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles in the ALCS(Don’t forget the “Jeffrey Maier Incident”) and beat the heavily favored defending champion Atlanta Braves. After that season, the Yankees built a dynasty, winning three more titles from 1998-2000.
