Pitchers & Poets Podcast 36: Yuuuup!

In episode 36 of the podcast, we explore Manny Ramirez’s campaign to return to the MLB, we discuss the Dodgers-owning hopeful Josh Macciello and his strange, Herman Cain-esque bid for power, the anaconda victim rescue incident at which B.J. Ryan was present though it is unclear what his contribution was, and Ted’s first SABR meeting! At that meeting, I mentioned a fellow who told some great stories about Stan Musial, Nolan Ryan, Ted Williams, and Mickey Mantle as high schoolers. That fellow was Jim Kreuz, and here is one of his pieces on Nolan Ryan.

Pitchers & Poets Podcast 35: The Mat Latos Game

In episode 35 of the podcast we feel our way through the offseason’s latest transactions, consider on the antics of one J. Burnitz, and suffer with poor Yorvit Torrealba — he of the suspended from Venezuelan baseball for hitting an umpire in the face. We weave baskets with Derek Jeter and take an absurdly difficult quiz about Matt Latos. Plus, everybody wears masks, especially R.A. Dickey.

Pitchers & Poets Podcast 34: Winning the Fan Cave

In episode 34 of the podcast, we go for a little more structure, including actual quotations from around the web! The Braves attempt to protect their brand, Yu Darvish faces high expectations (from us)and Barry Bonds becomes an expensive scapegoat. Plus, the MLB Fan Cave — our favorite topic — has gotten even more discomfiting, but nothing is as discomfiting as the BBWAAA’s response to the Bill Conlin scandal.

Pitchers and Poets Podcast 31: The Next Guillermo Mota, with Chris Crawford

Eric and Ted bring on Chris Crawford of MLB Draft Insider to discuss the upcoming amateur draft, but not before a brief remembrance of Eric’s online sim baseball days.

Later, Ted and I discuss parkour-savvy baseball fans, home-plate collisions, and a better world in which every team as a Molina.
