Barstool Sports presents the Starting 9, featuring Jared Carrabis and Dallas Braden, the baseball podcast everyone wants but no one else will give you. This week's episode features a truly epic guest - World Series winner, one of the greatest DH's of all time, one of the most clutch players in baseball history - Big Papi, David Ortiz. Ortiz touches on this year's Red Sox, the home run mashing going on out in Oakland with Khris Davis and others, Bo Jackson, and the pitching in the modern game - including some thoughts on Blake Snell of the Rays - and much more. The guys also get into a wide variety of news, including Shohei Ohtani's impending Tommy John, John Gibbons and the Blue Jays parting ways, the developing situations with Roberto Osuna and Addison Russell, the injuries to Didi Gregorius and Dansby Swanson, and more. The crew dives into the wild postseason situation as we head into the final weekend, while also paying final respects to a trio of greats leaving the game - David Wright, Victor Martinez and Ken “Hawk” Harrelson. The crew also answers questions from the #groundscrew!
