Episode 10: The All-Time Fantasy Draft Rounds 6-10
Rounds 6-10 of the ultimate MLB Wine Cellar Draft featuring Alex Murphy continues as Murph builds a strange rotation and Vik and Jacob almost draft in lockstep in terms of eras.

Episode 10: The All-Time MLB Fantasy Draft Rounds 1-5
Vik and Jacob celebrate reaching their tenth episode with a special program. Alongside guest Alex Murphy, our heroes conduct a Wine Cellar Draft spanning the entirety of MLB's modern era. "Wine Cellar" is a Bill Simmons concept wherein you pick "vintages" of a player, such as 2012 Miguel Cabrera or 1966 Frank Robinson, as opposed to drafting a player's entire career. Each GM can only select one player from a franchise and they must select at least one player from every decade. The eventual rosters will consist of 5 starting pitchers, 3 relievers, 8 starting fielders, 1 DH, and 3 bench batters. Who will craft the perfect team?
Episode 9: What We Take From What We've Lost (FULL)
Get ready for laments and requiems. Featuring "Live From The Lounge" host Gary Lightman, Vik and Jacob get together for a round of reminiscing. First, Vik waxes poetic about a baseball uniform style that has recently gone out of vogue, despite it's close ties to some of the sport's greatest moments (2:45). Then Gary remembers one of his favorite Philadelphia Phillies from 50 years ago, who should by nearly every measure be in the Hall of Fame already (30:11). Finally, after what's been a tough week for Minor League Baseball, Jacob offers a requiem for not only what the organization once was, but also the career of the man who embodied its mythic past and utilitarian future (56:32).
