The spectacular Game 7s in the NBA playoffs. The Twins' less-than-stellar weekend series against the Detroit Tigers. What Patrick likes and dislikes about softball.

Patrick explains why getting excited about a baseball team a month-plus into the season can be a mistake and ends with an appearance from Positive Pat in which PP gives us the lowdown on Patrick's upcoming trip to Montreal.
