Whenever I want to record a boxing/baseball podcast, I have only two options: Brian Kenny and Max Kellerman. That’s why I had them fight last night at the Kronk Gym in Detroit for the right to appear on today’s BS Report. Kenny won decisively (KO 3) and had enough stamina left over to crank out an hour-long discussion on Floyd Mayweather’s place in the Boxing Villain hierarchy, what he’d do as the czar of boxing, who really won the Hagler-Hearns fight, does boxing have a PED problem, can pitchers win the MVP, can the Red Sox hold on for the right to get swept in Round 1, is Jose Bautista having a better or worse season than we think, and how far Kenny plans on pushing sabermetrics with his new MLB Network gig. The entire conversation reminded me that it sucks not to have BK as an ESPN coworker any more. At least we can still watch him in HD.
