Episode Summary

Let the Games Begin

As a long-time baseball fan Chris, who often tries to meld his American boy-next-door lifestyle with his rock-star profession, revels in his newfound friendship with star Oakland A's pitcher Barry Zito. That is, until he discovers that Barry can do just about everything better than he can. He's startled by Barry's musical aptitude when he joins in on a band rehearsal, and after surfing, jogging, mountain biking, and even boxing with him, Chris wonders if there is anything Barry isn't good at. Chris tries hard to be a good sport, but is secretly frantic to find something he can beat Barry at.

Yola, meanwhile, has her own plans for the Cy Young Award winner... not the least of which involves trying to get to second base. She's mesmerized by Barry's movie star looks, unpretentious attitude, and unwavering discipline. When he plays his guitar, she's inspired by his gift for singing and songwriting and, much to Chris' chagrin, considers signing him. But, little by little, Yola's admiration turns to intimidation, and she's not quite sure how to rise above it.

Convinced that a rock star of his caliber needs a personal assistant, Anson hires Roger, an unemployed executive he met at the bar, to coordinate his busy schedule. Unfortunately, when Roger decides it's time to talk about his salary, Anson soon discovers what it means to be "The Boss..."
