Crowding the Plate Podcast Episode 64: The 2017 MLB Playoffs Pre-Preview

The regular season is almost over and Joe Hojnacki and Greg Hessen can’t wait. There has been little drama this month as most of the playoff races are all sewn up. The 2017 MLB Playoffs need to get here and provide some, fast.

The two also discuss the increased strikeout rate throughout the league, baseball on Mars, and Andrew Romine playing all nine positions in one game.

Because of Joe’s bad back discussed at the beginning of this episode, he was unable to sit at a computer long enough to get Episode 63 edited and loaded up to the internet. So, here for your listening pleasure, is Episode 63: A New Home Run Record.

Hosted by Joe Hojnacki and Greg Hessen, Crowding the Plate is a weekly baseball podcast here on Last Word on Sports. It aims to cover the fun, yet analytical, side of baseball once a week.

Joe Hojnacki writes about soccer for Last Word on Sports and is also co-host of the Crowding the Plate Podcast. An avid Red Sox fan, Joe idolizes Bryce Harper and feels that his fun showmanship is the way to save baseball from becoming overrun by old folks, and from dying out.

Greg Hessen is the resident Tigers fan on Crowding the Plate. As somewhat more of a traditionalist, Greg longs for the days of pitchers hitting in the American League and a landscape that doesn’t include things like bat flips and PEDs tarnishing the greatest of all games.
