Former MLB All-Stars — and yes, we say that lightly — Robert Fick and Dmitri Young have a new video podcast. They debuted their show on Tuesday, which was before San Francisco 49ers CB Chris Culliver’s homophobic remarks were publicized. The Southern California natives were joined by brothers Jered and Jeff Weaver (also from SoCal) for the show. Jeff, Robert, and Dmitri were all teammates on the atrocious ’02 Detroit Tigers, while Young and Fick were later teammates on the ’07 Washington Nationals. Naturally, there was a high level of comfort among the guys, so the show had a very conversational tone. About 17 minutes into the program, Fick and Young began actually discussing real topics. The first one they brought up concerned gay teammates in light of Torii Hunter’s anti-gay remarks that were publicized last month. Fick, who openly cussed and referenced marijuana multiple times throughout the program, said he would be “uncomfortable” with a gay teammate. The Weavers took a different view. “I don’t want a gay baseball player in my clubhouse,” said Fick. “It would be uncomfortable.” Jered Weaver expressed his support, saying if the teammate is producing, “bring ‘em on.” “If you’re hitting .300 with 40 and 140, bring ‘em on, you know? I think it would just be a shock at first, but it’s still your teammate in the long run,” said Weaver, as transcribed by Big League Stew. “They worked just as hard as us to get up to where we’re at.” Fick reconsidered after Weaver made his point and said, “I’m sure I’d get over it.” Jeff Weaver shared a similar opinion to his brother. “Just let ‘em be the way they are,” Jeff Weaver said. “As long as they can hit or pitch.” Young cracked a homophobic joke before saying, “to me, people are people so it doesn’t bother me.” They then moved onto the topic of PEDs in light of the Biogensis bust revealed on Tuesday. The guys all agreed that for the most part MLB has cleaned up when it comes to PEDs. Jered even related a story about being contacted for HGH blood testing while he was on vacation in Europe celebrating an anniversary with his wife. Jered Weaver also talked about signing his five-year, $85 million contract extension with the Angels. Though many considered the contract to be a hometown discount, Weaver said it was hard to turn down that kind of money. He also indicated he is striving for another big contract after this one expires. You can watch the program in the video below, but be warned: it is truly an amateur-hour production. Seriously, guys, if you need some help, I have like 10 years of radio experience and I’m in the 818. I’d be happy to assist. Also, dude, Jeff Weaver is looking and sounding more and more like Nick Diaz by the day. It’s scary.
