I don't particularly care about baseball and I watched every second of this. Maybe it's the combination of modest-yet-flashy graphics, statistics, and a few random anecdotes?
Cena_mark
Same here. Good storytelling.

Bort
He tells it well, and it's really not about the particulars of baseball so much as a guy who had an unlikely and inexplicable career. It could have been about typewriter salesmen and it would have been comparably engaging.

Potrod
Jon Bois has an amazing recollection of what working at RadioShack was like.

Bort
Potrod, at first I thought you were being sarcastic about how this guy can make boring things seem interesting, but no, you're right on the money.

Yes, as a hater of radioshack that was a pretty satisfying read!

The stat nerds and the story "Eastbound and Down" level of disasters are what make baseball so fascinating. 86 Mets winning the World Series high on cocaine? Come on. It's amazing.

The last time I walked into a Radio Shack, I felt like I was in a foreign country. All the prices are insane, the shop looks like shit and the employees are in the fuck-you-customer mode of post-USSR countries.

I actually have followed Francoeur for a number of years. Surprised and happy this is on here. I haven't seen it before. Although he might be an average or even below average fielder, he has a cannon of an arm. I suggest anyone look up his assist highlights on youtube. An assist is where you field the ball and contribute to getting the out. He for a number of seasons lead the MLB in assists, throwing people out from right field at second, third, and home. There is also a funny a clip of a time when the Phillies were loosing badly and he got the chance to pitch.

this is baseball though, where outfielders have big bats and small gloves (see Manny Ramirez, Gary Sheffield, Jose Canseco...)

Potrod
If anyone wants to see the game ending unassisted triple play he hit into: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DviV7CYrc-E

I won tickets to a suite at Safeco Field, attended today. Ate so much catered food I am in agony. But you know what? Baseball is cool. It's a gentleman's game and exists in a weird, timeless zone where American men are respectable, charitable, humble and quiet. It's weird. Baseball is everything football isn't, and I respect the fuck out of it.

Try the bleachers next time.

baleen
That's how I feel about it.

baleen
And as Teenertot said, yeah it can get bad.
However, I got $10 seats to a Met game once and sat way up in the rafters with all the racist compulsive gamblers and their little pocket radios from the 80s. It was one of the funniest things I've ever done.

Gmork
This guy fuckin' loves charts.
Sanest Man Alive
It's a series he does called "Chart Party," there had goddamned better be hell of charts in it.

The time Francoeur was locked in the bathroom was during a stint in the minor leagues playing for the "El Paso Chihuahua’s". Earlier in the season they had also convinced him that one of his teammates was deaf, and had Francoeur exaggeratedly mouthing all of his words to him for months.
