Episode 99: Are You Sipping On Something Already?

by Kevin Goldstein

And here it is. Episode 99. It's packed with tons of prospect talk, but our special guest is really special, as Evald Johnson, a filmmaker who also happens to be the son of former big leaguer and big league manager Tim Johnson is making a baseball movie. One of the starts of that movie is underground rock legend David Yow. They have a Kickstarter going, and you can invest in the film. How totally cool would it be if our listeners helped a movie get made. The podcast is free. If you've ever thought or said to us that you would pay for the show, do it by clicking on that link and helping artists make art. And check out the benefits on the right. It's not a charity, as you will get stuff in return, from your name in the credits to downloads of the film to blu-rays to movie artwork by Yow. Please help them, it would be totally awesome, and as always, we hope you enjoy the show.

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

Realizing that Lakewood isn't loaded with prospects, it was interesting to hear which players Jason mentioned (Dugan and Duffy) as opposed to the guys Kevin had in his Top 20 Franco and Altherr. Jason is there anything you have on those guys, as I always enjoy your scouting take on players?

I had the same response. I get that guys like Altherr and Duffy and Franco may not be on anyone's radar but I was hoping to hear something on them.

I wrote about Altherr and Franco today. I was saving the discussion for the piece.

Nice! Thanks. I'm familiar with their numbers but I'd like to know what they look like from a trained eye.

I meant to say "from the perspective of someone with a trained eye".

Thank you for reading my email. :-)

The last "tales of want" was cringe-worthy, but ROFL-funny.

Maybe I'm too old (30) for the chat acronyms but I have no idea what ROFL means.

I feel they're using the end of the podcast rumors to give themselves a nice vacation from the podcast.
