The Nati Boys are taking a break this week so we’ve got a “Best of…” episode for you. We’ve gone through the archives and found some of our favorite fantasy drafts from episodes past. Come with us on a journey through time as the Nati Boys discuss our favorite fast food items, pumpkin spice-flavored products, shoe brands that are better than Under Armor and things that are taller than Aaron Judge.
Look at this smug asshole. The bat flip. The classic stand-the-bat-on-its-knob trick. All because I hung a curveball on a 1-2 count. Fuckin’ guy. Now I’ve gotta do what’s right. Guess what Aaron, you’re about to wear one next time up. Lucky for me, I can hit mid 90s on The Show. Hope you’ve got ice for that shoulder blade, bub.
That’ll make you think long and hard the next time you park one in the left field bleachers against Ol’ Mac, the 6’4″ 225lb hard throwing right-hander who restarted the game over and over again until he got drafted by the Reds. Sure it took me 3 seasons of simulated game action on Rookie and buying XP $10 at a time to make it to The Show. None of that matters now that it’s mano y mano.
It doesn’t matter how we both got here. All that matters now is who the last man standing will be. Spoiler alert: it’s me.
On today’s episode the Nati Boys, the guys get scandalous talking about the recent indictments brought down by the FBI on a few different NCAA coaches and schools. We also talk Harbaugh vs. Purdue’s visitors locker rooms, and the upcoming college football weekend for the Buckeyes and Bearcats. Our NFL talk includes our picks against the spread, Brent Musburger dissin’ Tony Romo, and a San Diego restaurant giving away free tacos when the Chargers lose. We wrap the show up with a fantasy draft of our favorite sports scandals. Enjoy the show!
On today’s episode we start off with a little Reds talk, including Mez’s most recent injury, Joey Votto doing Joey Votto things, and Scooter taking the mound. We move onto the Bengals pre-season ESPN power ranking. We also get into some Miami Dolphins news/injury talk, a couple short basketball segments, and end it with a fantasy draft of things that are taller than Aaron Judge.
6’7” 282lbs Aaron Judge has been taking the baseball world by storm this season. He was a name tossed around during the multiple Chapman to New York trade sagas and truth be told, I didn’t really know much about him. It’s become apparent why the Yankees weren’t willing to part ways with the behemoth of a man. Through May 8th, Judge is hitting .317 and has 13 home runs. I won’t bore you with the rest of the nerd stats, but it’s clear that he’s quickly becoming one of the best power hitters in the game in his first full time season. Some people are giving him a free pass, but not me. I can see exactly what is going on here. Before you jump on me and say the steroid card is overplayed, that’s not what I’m talking about. People (me) are saying he’s not human. With the Yankees in town playing the hometown Reds, I am determined to uncover Aaron Judge for what he really is: an Alien Baseball Robot. So I did what any investigative journalist would do. I bought the cheapest ticket available online and walked around the stadium to monitor Mr. Judge’s (do you call alien robots Mr.?) every move to see if I could pinpoint what galaxy he came from.
