Notes Edit

  • The Diamondbacks Headlines Contest first appeared in Episode 498: The Astros' Draft Postmortem
  • This is the first mention of Nora Morse. Nora's headlines include "D-backs fight valiantly to win meaningless game", "D-backs lousy", and "D-backs pitchers resuscitate Phillies moribund offense".
  • Sam squeaky laugh at 13:00
  • At the end of the episode Ben and Sam discuss their interest in attending games for an independent league baseball team. Sam discovers the Pacific Association near him in California, and mentions the Sonoma Stompers as one of the nearby teams.
