BP Announcements

Name the Sequel to the Up and In Podcast...We Have a Winner!

by Joe Hamrahi

We Have a Winner!

We are happy to announce we now have a name for the new podcast coming this April with Jason Parks & Mike Ferrin. The name... 

Fringe-Average

Two separate people came up with the podcast name so they will both receive lifetime subscriptions to Baseball Prospectus. Their names will be announced soon. Congratulations!
 
Thank you to all who submitted names for the podcast. You guys rock.
 
An all new podcast logo, iTunes link, and even apparel will be coming soon!

March 2, 2013

As you might have heard by now, we're starting a new podcast. Jason Parks is back, and he'll have a new podcast teammate. His name? Mike Ferrin!

Yep, that Mike Ferrin. Mike has very bravely raised his hand and offered to take part in the weekly shenanigans with Professor Parks. Is he crazy? Insane? Maybe a glutton for punishment? All the above? Probably, but nonetheless, Mike is now part of the team and will co-host the sequel to Up and In.

Now since this is a new podcast, it needs a new name. Up and In with Jason and Kevin Goldstein will forever be remembered, but that name has been retired.

This is where you come in...

We've decided to run a contest to name the new podcast. That's right, it's your turn to put a stamp on the next legendary BP show.  So starting right now, we will be accepting suggestions for the new program. All you have to do is email your ideas to UIpodcast@baseballprospectus.com. We will accept nominations through Saturday, March 16.

And if your podcast name is chosen for the show, you will receive a free LIFETIME subscription to Baseball Prospectus (if you have a subscription already, it will be added on to the end of your existing sub). So put on your thinking caps and fire away. We can't wait to see your creativity!

Good luck!

High and Tight? Chin Music? The Brush Back? I think the name should continue to celebrate throwing baseballs more or less at peoples' heads.

Is there a specific theme for the podcast like minor leaguers, predictions, etc?

If it's a lifetime subscription than why does it have to be added to the end of my existing "sub"?
Yes, smart-ass response and no, I will not give any podcast names away here...

Haha! Good question. It's mainly due to those annoying accountants (like me!).
