Welcome back for another episode of Who’s on Worst, the podcast where we revisit some of the worst baseball movies we can think of. In our first episode, some readers of the site were hesitant to listen to us pick apart The Scout, so you might be pleased to learn that neither of us hated our re-watch of Fever Pitch.

The 2005 Red Sox romantic comedy seeing Sox mega-fan Ben (Jimmy Fallon) fall for career-minded Lindsay (Drew Barrymore), all set against the backdrop of the 2004 Red Sox season. We talk about what worked, what didn’t, and how the film has held up 16 years later.

If you want something a little more positive than our roast of The Scout, then this will be a great episode to jump in on.

We’re also crowd-sourcing input on what we watch next, so please tell us which of the four Twitter-suggested options you want episode three to focus on.


What should we watch next?
