  • A Gaelic lesson for novices and some insights as to who is crooked.
  • We rename our friend at Astros Baseball Rob to Rab, it's an honour!

Plus an Umpire gets the Hero of the week award whilst disappointment in the Bullpen sees the villain of the week award not travel far.

Honourable mention in heroes to Danny Santana for how manky (all in Scttish) his kit was after sliding into base and Rico recommends getting cleaner gear from our friends at Dugout Classics.

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

No hitters - good thing or bad thing? Do people really not want to see great pitching?

The Detroit Tigers rock on in the Al(an) Bullpen Division.

The fans of the Tigers, Red Sox, White Sox and 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.

White Sox fan Dave sings the praises of the MLB in their approach to key events and people specifically how they promoted Mothers Day before nominating his own Manager as Villain of the week.

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. 

Richard takes us to a listeners question in Triple AAA "ask about anything" on the Simple Rating System which leads to a great chat on MLB scheduling and how can the third best team be considered the best.

The fans of the Tigers, Red Sox, White Sox and 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.

Preferring to spend more time focusing on Heroes of the Week, (who makes the nominations?) the boys still find a nomination for Villain of the week too.

How do they feel their own teams did in week 4 and what will week 5 bring?

What did the Bros learn about baseball this week? There's always loads happening and plenty to find out.

Plus all the latest from our Fantasy Baseball action, where the Highland Bullpen continue to beat the odds with our team comprised only of Red Sox, White Sox, Tigers and Seattle Mariners continuing their unbeaten start to the season, WDW to be continued.

In Triple AAA "Ask About Anything" listeners give us their questions. And we invite listeners to give us their views on whether a power shift will happen in NYC baseball given the recent ownership changes in the Mets? Host Richard reluctantly compares it to the current changes in Scottish football.

News on a change to our quizzing which will now be a Twitter picture feature!

The Highland Bullpen Baseball and Sports Podcast special - Football’s ditched European Super League plan and American sports comparisons

The Highland Bullpen Baseball and Sports Podcast special - Football’s ditched European Super League plan and American sports comparisons

April 23, 2021

The Bullpen bros pull no punches when discussed the controversial plans for a European football (soccer) Super League!

Europe's biggest and richest clubs were forced to shelve their plan this time but Alan, Yorkshire Dave and Dave Junior reckon Juventus, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United and Liverpool are unlikely to abandon plans to grab a greater share of football's billions.

And the Bros call out some of the hypocrisy flying around among pundits and broadcasters who have suddenly discovered that greed and money is increasingly controlling the people's game.
