New Into the Basket Episode: Concerns with David Ross, Escaping Winner’s Trap

Some smartass gave this one a libelous title, but that’s what happens when you cede creative control. In any case, this episode consists mostly of listening to two of the co-hosts sparring verbally over David Ross’s characterization of Aroldis Chapman as a “great guy.” It’s actually about the culture of misogyny in sports, which has been cast in stark relief by the recent goings-on in Houston.

Talk eventually turns to Ross’s merits as a manager and why the Cubs chose him to lead the team, though one co-host was mainly just trying to keep from coughing.
