In this week’s edition of The Boo Birds Podcast, the guys reflect on a year of pandemic life and the return of fans to sporting events. Then, John gives out some helpful tips for success in your fantasy baseball drafts.

The rundown:

• The guys talk about what aspects of life over the past year might continue once the pandemic ends (1:27)

• John Reads the News™ (4:53), during which a mention of the retirement of Ray Gaddis leads to a new SOCCER MINUTE (5:53)

• Joe laments where John always seems to place sad items in the news before the guys talk briefly about the passing of former Phillie Rheal Cormier (7:43)

• A seriously lame What Are You Drinking?™ (9:26)

• Fans are being welcomed back into sporting events in Philadelphia, and the guys share their thoughts on the topic (10:13)

• With Opening Day coming up in three weeks, John gives you a leg up on the competition for your fantasy baseball draft; he shares his top hitters and pitchers, sleeper picks, guys to avoid, and prospects to put on your radar before the guys make their cases for which Phillie you should target in your draft (19:51)

• John is still giving away a Chase Utley bobblehead from his collection; leave us a review on Apple Podcasts and it could be yours!

Is Aaron Nola an Ace? The Boo Birds Podcast

This week, the guys do their first combined "What Are You Drinking?" taste test, where Joe surprises John with a can of PBR Hard Coffee (5:27). After getting through that, John kicks off a discussion about the Sixers (13:01) before Joe explains the European Super League proposal (that fell apart before the episode even dropped) and why it was so widely loathed (23:52).  Then, John airs a grievance after three decades (39:57) before the guys talk about the Aaron Nola conversation (46:25) and the black hole that is center field at Citizens Bank Park (58:08).
