John is joined by the incomparable Steve Neuman, SABR historian Dan Levitt, and Hans Van Slooten of Baseball Reference while Aaron trains kittens to fight in the terrifying wilds of central Wisconsin. They talk about how the Twins can fix their bullpen, where Terry Ryan ranks in comarison to other MLB general managers, some vintage #SanoPorn, the end of JO Berrios' season, Byron Buxton's next three weeks, contemplate what alien/good-intentioned ghost has taken over Eduardo Escobar's body, the emergence of Tyler Duffey, Glen Perkins' various maladies (with a Twitter update from Perkins himself), and if the Twins' "hero of the week" method can get them to the postseason.
