Up And In: The Baseball Prospectus Podcast
Hi everyone. I go into much greater detail during the Podcast itself, but I've been talking about doing one all year, and after a few starts and stops, I just bought some equipment, figured out some software and started it myself. Here's episode 0.9, a beta run if you will. We'll work every week to make it better and certainly welcome all suggestions and feedback. This will be a once weekly show that I'll be doing with my good friend Jason Parks, and we're happy with how this turned out. So download and enjoy (hopefully). For now, we're an excellent prospect at Low-A with tons of promise, but admittedly some work to do as well. One last warning, this is a podcast, not a professional level radio production (we'll leave that in the excellent hands of Will Carroll), so you can expect (or be warned) or some occasional light profanity as well as the description of scenes from a film that is Rated R. We're all adults here, right?
