How a Gnome, a Chia Pet, and a Wayward Writer May Have Ended Drew Storen's Career (feat. Craig Stammen)
We dive into Steve's time as a print journalist at the University of Dayton, which allowed him the opportunity to cover two Washington Nationals games from the press box. After Paul's eagerness to snag a Jayson Werth garden gnome got him featured in the Washington Post, Steve decided to do his own coverage of the Nationals' quirky promotions. Find out how a follow-up article led to a few confused broadcasters, a clubhouse intrusion, and one, maybe two, career-ending interactions. Finally, Steve meets up with former Dayton Flyer Craig Stammen to discuss his 2017 comeback with the San Diego Padres.
