On this episode, Derek and Jesse are joined by senior editor for Last Word on Sports Evan Thompson to discuss his new book, A Complete History of the Major League Baseball Playoffs Volume 1, the D-backs hiring Jeff Banister as their new bench coach, the A’s moving to Las Vegas, and more.


Derek Montilla, occasionally known as The Mayor of PHNX, has covered the Arizona Diamondbacks beat for over 10 seasons. He's a career .093 hitter as an amateur with more errors than runs scored, so everyone decided that the press box was a better fit. The Arizona native is a diehard fan of all Valley sports and can also be found roaming free ringside at local pro wrestling shows.
