Dave updates everyone during this special bonus mini-podcast the particulars from a wild and wacky Yankees/Twins game in which the lead changed every half inning from the top of the 8th all the way through the top of the 10th.  As Dave joins the game in progress, Aaron Hicks puts the capper on this very wild game.  Some brief thoughts about the matchup and why the pacing was inexcusable for an otherwise great MLB game.

John and Mike are back to recap the 2019 Open Championship from Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland.  Irishman Shane Lowry puts together an impressive weekend, blowing away the field by the middle of the final round of play.  The crew checks out what he did to keep out of trouble and some of his best shots of the weekend.  We also cover the significance of a win in his relative homeland in front of many enthusiastic fellow Irish fans.  Later we look at some of the other contenders and how they did: runner-up Tommy Fleetwood, an unlikely top-5 finish for 46 year old Lee Westwood, a rough weekend for Brooks Koepka, and a disaster for J.B. Holmes in his final round.   Afterward, a look ahead to the FedEx Cup playoff, a look at future Open Championship sites and more from the world of golf.

It's the DITCOW MLB Midseason Show with Ari, Gerry, and Dave back to look at the great amount of new talent in the game: Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. on the Blue Jays, Fernando Tatis, Jr. on the Padres, Austin Riley on the Braves, Alex Verdugo on the Dodgers, and many other great young rookies out there.  Plus we look at the recently played London Series between the Red Sox and Yankees, cover the teams at the top and the "hot start" teams falling flat like the Mariners, Rays, and others.  Later in the show, we address the growing controversy of the juiced baseballs which MLB refuses to admit to.  The "new balls" are said to be responsible for the outrageous surge in home run totals in 2019.  The crew will investigate to see how valid the "new ball" claim is.
