What is the meaning of life? Which came first, the chicken or the egg? These questions will absolutely not be answered on this week’s episode. Spencer Hendricks fills in for Van alongside Brian to discuss Dee Gordon’s suspension, Jose Altuve’s power breakout, and Joey Votto’s acute self-awareness. Plus Brian greedily takes over the Hall of Pain in Van’s absence and Kevin Slowey gets the airtime he’s richly deserved for so, so long.
