Episode 23: I'm Gonna Throw Up

by Kevin Goldstein

You want a World Series preview? You got it. After going through our email and getting into a serious, heavy discussion on Josh Hamilton and how we choose our heroes, Jason and I break down the Rangers/Giants matchup by position while making our series picks and MVP predictions. Then Jon Morosi, national writer with Fox Sports joins us for his take while also making his own predictions and getting into a fascinating talk about the future of the beat writer. Following that, it's the best eight minutes in the history of the podcast, as my mother joins us to make her picks and talk about cookies and tornadoes. Irony of all ironies? My mother is her basement as opposed to vice versa. Then it's the usual wackiness with Roy Blakely of kotowari.org joining us to talk Fallout: New Vegas, so cooking talk, and Jason's new cat.   

Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Uh oh. Jason + religion = fewer twitter followers.

KG - would you and Jason consider doing an AFL segment next week? Some of the guys you've heard from scouts about that are either tearing it up (or really struggling). As always, really enjoyed tonight's Podcast, especially the heated conversation re: Josh Hamilton and religion. It was also a really good point on someone like Nelson Cruz, I never really thought of it that way.

Kevin's mother was the best guest ever. We need this woman on the podcast on a semi-regular basis. Hell, she should take my place.

Two weeks without a "not manager" segment. EXPLAIN YOURSELVES!

He'll be back -- we've had timing/travel issues, that's all.

Well, looks like Cruz wasn't the MVP. Fail. That said, I was sending messages to a scout friend of the podcast, and I called the Renteria HR and MVP right before the fateful swing. Unfortunately, I will receive no credit for such proclamations, and have to live with my unsuccessful stance on the series. Again, fail.
