The Highland Bullpen Baseball Podcast E21- week 14 of season with MLB draft, All-Star game, Olympic baseball and much more

July 25, 2021

The Scottish baseball-loving Bullpen Bros are back and there is barely enough room in the Highland Bullpen to pack everything in!

The fans of the Detroit Tigers, Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox and Seattle Mariners loved their first experience of the MLB draft, had fun with the home run derby and went all-in on the All-Star action.

Not to mention Olympic baseball chat and the latest news and views on their four teams as the battle for play-off places hots up.

Of course, the real action is in the British Baseball Podcasts league where the Bullpen's early season success is proving hard to maintain!

Away from the baseball diamond, we also find time to reflect on amazing American success at the recent Open golf championship, plus we check in on the Tour de France.

So depending what country you are in, this episode is either 'swell', 'magnifique' or 'braw' as we say in the Scottish Highlands. Enjoy, subscribe and share.

July 8, 2021

The Scottish baseball loving Bullpen Bros are back with their weekly round up in this one hour chat!

The fans of the Tigers, Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox and Seattle Mariners all the way over in Bonnie Scotland (and indeed Yorkshire) are here to give their unique and fresh insight on America's game from the eyes of British soccer fans.

Sadly Dave Jnr couldn't join us this week. Nothing to do with Alan gloating over a Tiger series win over the White Sox.

Yorkshire Dave runs the rule over the Boston Red Sox week including news on one of our favourite collectable items, sporting furniture. Which MLB team was giving away a pillow as a freebie?

Rico runs the rule over the Mariners pitcher making the All Star Game.

The Bullpen are back on form for the Fantasy baseball team with their best won of the year.

And our resident expert Dave talks over an MLB first with one of this years three (!) Yankees Triple Plays. 1-2-6-2-5-6

The Highland Bullpen Baseball Podcast Series 2 Episode 19 MLB 2021 Week 12 Review

July 2, 2021

The Scottish baseball loving Bullpen Bros are back with their weekly round up in this one hour chat!

The fans of the Tigers, Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox and Seattle Mariners all the way over in Bonnie Scotland (and indeed Yorkshire) are here to give their unique and fresh insight on America's game from the eyes of British soccer fans.

Our weekly roundup sees delight as all our teams continue to do weel, both Sox looking good for the Play offs, the Mariners battling for a wild card spot plus the 2nd consecutive winning month for the Detroit Tigers.

Spider Tack rears its' head again but firstly in celebration as we recognise fellow Highlander, Tom Stoltman, becoming the World's Strongest Man. Thanks to the sticky substance which was developed for these athletic endeavours and not for more villainous use by Pitchers. Including one of our own who was ejected from a game.

The drop in form of our Fantasy team is arrested as we battle to a draw and give an extended run in the team to the Bullpen's favourite Daz Cameron. Which Tiger we replace him with this week as we fight to get back to a play off spot?

Our knowledge expands via AAA (Ask About Anything) as we discuss the All Star Game, Infield Fly Rule (compared to the Offside rule!) and in addition to discussing our Matching Sox statistics (plus young Archies horror at the actual colour of those teams socks) we review some more of the great stat facts that hot the world of baseball.

And having been back at the football for the Euros you get our predictions, one of which will be wrong by tomorrow morning! Plus Yorkshire Dave remains cautious about England's chances.

The Scottish baseball loving Bullpen Bros are back with their weekly round up in this one hour chat!

The fans of the Tigers, Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox and Seattle Mariners all the way over in Bonnie Scotland (and indeed Yorkshire) are here to give their unique and fresh insight on America's game from the eyes of British soccer fans.

Our regular weekly round up starts of with delight in the Highland Bullpen as our favourite player and honorary Scot, Daz Cameron, gets called back into the Tigers squad and tops it off with a clutch home run. A delight shared by all, not solely our resident Tigers fan.

Our love of all things Scottish is matched by our love of things statistical! And we discuss a couple of obscure statistical achievements by two our teams that help us love the game of baseball. We even acknowledge Scotland's Euro 2021 disappointing start in the football.

Which mother (or Madre) gets our hero of the week?

Yorkshire Dave delves into Quality Starts, Tough Losses and Cheap Wins. yes, they are official terms!

And Dave Jnr talks us through the All Star Game and vote and questions how we would set up a similar game in Scottish football. Clearly we had to edit out most of the chat here as we figure out the way forward! Red Sox fan Dave also gets his obligatory Ted Williams reference in.

And in our topic of the week we get onto Spider tack, comparisons and major differences with cricket and the use of balls, Cycle Doping, Golf equipment and this random chat ends up explaining the Highland Games. The world's only podcast that takes you from Baseball to Tossing the Caber!

Defeat in the Fantasy League but we are talking and learning ERA v WHIP, Saves v Holds.

Of course his own management skills are demonstrated with his focus on the Bullpen Bros Fantasy league. But did the Bros continue their unbeaten streak in the UK Baseball Podcasters Fantasy League this week?

Excitement for Tigers fan as Alan as his team improve their recent weekly record 100% and current team legend Miggy Cabrera overtakes Babe Ruth in total hits.
