Carlos Delgado’s would-be home run in the Yankees-Mets weekend finale sparked an old favorite discussion on the show: Is there room and a need for instant replay in MLB? The debate touches on ideas for implementation, broadcasters, fans and guilt trips for umpires.

Hosts Joe Aiello and Brandon Rosage digress into big league play-by-play commentator reviews and the age-old interleague play argument. But the fun starts when film producer John Fitzgerald joins the show for an interview.

Fitzgerald is the producer, director and editor of the television series “Playing for Peanuts”, an episodic adventure through minor league baseball.

The show uses reality TV and documentary techniques to follow the South Georgia Peanuts in their inaugural season. The Peanuts, managed by former Major League second baseman Wally Backman, are made up of a mix of rookies and veterans, all hoping to get back into affiliated minor league baseball.

The program adds in a review of its weekly “Pick-Off” game, a DVD giveaway and more news and notes from the past weekend in Major League Baseball.
