Shane Bacon joins the show to talk about the PGA and, specifically, to give some player insight into the Dustin Johnson ruling. We spend a good amount of time on that, but also focus quite a bit on the final round, from Nick Watney’s implosion to Bubba Watson’s hazard to Martin Kaymer’s win and everything in between.

Nick and I then spend a lot of time on baseball, talking about the current standings before realizing that, holy crap, there’s still 45 games to go. With football starting, doesn’t it feel like it’s almost time for the playoffs?

Also, we tackle Stephen Strasburg’s comments about Bryce Harper (“If [Harper] wants to play here, he’s going to play here. If he doesn’t want to play here, then we don’t want him here.”) to talk about how ridiculous this whole charade is.

Harper left high school early to enroll in JC so he could start his pro baseball clock early. Now he’s going to SIT OUT A YEAR? Please. It’s all posturing. And Strasburg is great for calling him out, even if he did basically do the same thing last year.

Also discussed: ROBOT UMPIRES. Then a little on the EPL opening weekend and Top Chef/Next Food Network Star.

Thanks for listening.
