Joe was tied up with the Jets this week, so James was joined on the show by his dad and the Spurtability historian: Steven Creange (1:58 - 3:05). James introduces and gives out the inaugural Josh Hader/Sean Newcomb/Trea Turner Tweet of the Week award (3:05 - 7:32).

They wrap up the show with some listener questions for James's dad (27:53 - 36:00).
