You might know D.B. best Baseball Twitter’s Chief Spoonerizer, and it’s in this same spirit that they’ve written a book, Hall of Name: Baseball’s Most Magnificent Monikers from “The Only Nolan” to “Van Lingle Mungo’ and More, which we talk about in a fun, quick chat.

We also revisit some of the best spoonerisms out there, our favorite Simpsons episodes, and, of course — because I really wanted to take these last few episodes to explore how people felt about the state of the game — the state of the game.

When I dragooned Doug into doing a podcast with me back in 2015, I had no idea where it would go. I think we can all agree that the results have been . . . mixed . . . at best, but I think it’s given us some great things such as voices to names we read, interviews with people who don’t ordinarily get a spotlight, spinoff showcases for Sami and Roger, and a very loyal listenership for which I’m grateful.

Thank you, D.B. for the chat, and thank you all for your time.
