by
Kevin Goldstein

<< Previous Column Entries Next Column Entries >>

It's an intimate show loaded with baseball talk. We go through your email (the listeners have come up big in the last two weeks) and then we look back at Pudge Rodriguez, look at some present with some surprising hot starts in the big leagues, and then look forward with the possibility of the 2011 draft being a monster. Then Jason regales us with tales from his week watching Carolina League baseball. From there it's the goofy stuff, including a video game recommendation that I think will appeal to the statistically minded.

Quick lesson for podcasters: you can't have a guest without booking a guest. Because of that tough lesson, it's an intimate show loaded with baseball talk. We go through your email (the listeners have come up big in the last two weeks) and then we look back at Pudge Rodriguez, look at some present with some surprising hot starts in the big leagues, and then look forward with the possibility of the 2011 draft being a monster. Then Jason regales us with tales from his week watching Carolina League baseball. From there it's the goofy stuff, including a video game recommendation that I think will appeal to the statistically minded. As always, we hope you enjoy.

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

We're back with another big show. After reading your emails (nice bounce back week from the listeners) we get into lots of baseball talk as I took in my first minor league game of the year and Miguel Sano did not disappoint. Then it's onto the big leagues as Jason breaks down the first starts of 2012 by Yu Darvish and Neftali Feliz of the Rangers, and we talk about how Yoenis Cespedes has become much-watch television. With some hot minor league starts, the questions about when a player will reach the big leagues have arrived, and I answer every one of them before Jason goes on a rant about how we evaluate defense. Our special guest is ESPN Baseball Tonight host Steve Berthiaume, who for some reason listens to our stupid show, and then it's the return of Not Jim Tracy and all the goofy stuff. As always, we hope you enjoy.

We follow up last week's major league preview show with the minor league version, and with Jason back in Brooklyn, it's a return to standard podcast form. After rolling through your emails, we talk about Yankees and Phillies prospects in the name of completion and then it's 30 minutes of hardcore prospect talk as Jason and I each pick five players we will be watching intensely this season. Inspired by an email, our special guest is right-hander Steve Palazzolo who discusses the career of a journeyman who has pitched for three organizations and in three different independent leagues, and then the hawk trap guys makes a return appearance in our listener of the week segment, as he does not trap hawks anymore. Then it's the goofy stuff, including a very special musical guest and as always, we hope you enjoy.

After a brief hiatus, we return with a star-studded 2012 season preview, as many of our favorite writers help us preview every division in baseball, but we save the best for last, as the official Up and In prediction for the 2012 World Series is reserved for Mom, and she does not disappoint. Then it's the goofy stuff, as Jason prepares to leave after a month in the desert. Tons of baseball talk, and we'll do it again next week with our minor league season preview. As always, we hope you enjoy.

Just a quick show as I get ready to hop a plane for a few days in Arizona. We go through your email, and then after receiving a lot of comments about the Jairo Beras situation we bring on our good friend Jorge Arangure to discuss what exactly goes on with Dominican signings and age investigations. Then it's the goofy stuff, including an outstanding musical guest. As always, we hope you enjoy.

We had to get Jason settled into Arizona, we had some technical glitches to sort out, but we're back. Jason and I read through your email, talked about Rangers and Brewers prospects, discuss the strange kind of signing of Jairo Beras and discuss Jason's spring training dairy and how haters gotta hate. Our special guest is Oakland A's outfield prospect Jeremy Barfield, a unique personality among ball players, and then it's the goofy stuff. See you next week, and as always, we hope you enjoy.

We promised we'd make it up to you and we did. We have the usual great emails, and two weeks of prospect lists to catch up on, but the special guests are the highlights. First, we're joined by both Jim Callis of Baseball America and Keith Law of ESPN to discuss the process of making a Top 100 (or 101) prospect list, as well as some differences we have and how the public reacts that lists. Then, in light of this week's big news, Mark Fainaru-Wada joins me to talk about the process that went into breaking the Ryan Braun in December as well as the righteous indignation that has come with the reaction. Then it's a bit of the goofy stuff and we're all done. As always, we hope you enjoy.

Short and sweet (well, for us), as the show almost didn't happen due to time constraints. We'll have plenty of Top 101 prospect talk next week, but for now we take your email, find an expert to talk to us about the Orioles shenanigans in Korea and have our return of the Listener of the Week with death metal legend Stevo. As always, we hope you enjoy.

Not much going on in the world of baseball as teams gear up for spring training, so we read plenty of our listeners fantastic emails, and some not so fantastic, as clearly, some of you still have hangups about sandals and men that wear earrings. Then we do some prospect talk and follow that up with our special guest Dirk Hayhurst, one of the most refreshingly honest players you will ever hear from, and we highly recommend his new book, Out Of My League. Then it's the goofy stuff, including a talk about Real Genius and how it's fair game to write about on a baseball site.

Let's keep it short. Let's just do an intimate show. Those were my thoughts heading into Thursday night, and all I really learned is that Jason and I don't know how to stop talking. Our listeners came up big in the email department, we have lots of prospects to talk about, and with the Cubs signing Gerardo Concepcion and the Josh Hamilton story breaking, we had some current events to discuss as well. As always, we hope you enjoy.

It's the return of Jason and a very long show as we have lots of prospect lists to discuss, as well as my unhealthy obsession with baseball media in the digital age. To help us conquer the latter, we enlist Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated to discuss the new world of breaking news and then to Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors about his position as the gatekeeper for breaking stories. It's a fascinating subject, and both guests are up to the task. As always, there's your emails and the goofy stuff, and set aside about three hours, as this is a long one.

The show returns sans Jason, but official substitute host Jorge Arangure comes through with another yeoman performance. We go through your emails and discuss the news of the week, and then our Special Guest is Ike Barinholtz. A previous guest from Episode 20, Ike returns with some baseball news, as the comedian/writer will be a cast member on the upcoming season of Eastbound And Down. Then it's the usually goofy stuff and Jorge coming to terms with Thanksgiving.
