Since I’m choosing to IGNORE the World Series and its inevitable ending…I’m intrigued with the news that Mark McGwire will be the Cardinals hitting coach. I idolized him as a kid – back in the “Bash Brothers” days at the Oakland Coliseum. …and then he broke my heart. He and Canseco both.
He and LaRussa will be all pals-ey again. (like Chipper & LaRoche ?).
*sigh* *sniff* sad. Now what will I look forward to every Monday morning? How to get through the off season? These “occasional” podcasts “periodically” during the off season better be great in number and come often.
My brain understands that a pitcher making x amount of money should start and the one making much less is in the bullpen. However, my heart asks why can’t we just take the guys we have and make use of them where they best serve the team? I was glad you guys finally mentioned McClouth because I love watching that guy play. Maybe it’s just because he came to the team bringing hope and dreams of being a playoff contending team but I think it’s more than that. I love his speed and how he sees the ball from CF (just not when he sees it flying over his head).
Finally, Hammy, please for the love let your wife answer the door for a while. Lest a boyscout come and offer you a tub of popcorn for an absurd amount of money and get a fist to the gut for his trouble.
I freaking love Prado, Diaz, and Escobar. Can’t wait until next year! I feel like the all the stars are lining up and the baseball gods are smiling on the Braves in 2010! I’ll see you all in the ATL for the first playoff game played at the Ted in WAY too long!
Anne – you can come up on stage with us to accept the award – consider it done. Regarding McGwire, while he may be a fine hitting coach (and I think that he and LaRussa have been pal-ing around all those years, just out of the media’s eye), why would you want to deal with all the questions and distractions? It seems they are already uncomfortable about it given that he didn’t attend his own announcement press conference!?!?!?!
One more thing about the severed leg/air guitar thing. So, at this Halloween shop, they were playing “Halloween” themed songs. Except, they were all sung by kids. And the CD included “The Time Warp” from Rocky Horror. And, frankly, I didn’t need to hear a bunch of 8 year olds sing about doing the pelvic thrust.
Okay, I got no love on this sentiment last time, but I’m running it up the flag pole “one more again”:
Who is with me in finding the shows with just “our gang” (like this one) the best ones. I like the guests, and I can’t believe how many top notch interviews ABT has rounded up seemingly at will. I’m also super impressed with how well you guys act as hosts.
BUT, I think you owe it to us to broadcast a full “Just Us” half hour in addition to the great interviews each week. Especially if you’re gonna punk out all winter long while our eyes bleed into the bright white glow of the MLB Trade Rumors site.
Steve will accuse me of not properly heralding the interviews because they are with rich people.
Hammy will say I’m subversively flirting with Leah. [Hi, Leah ]
‘Sup Bub. Have I ever told you I’m 5.5 and weigh 420 lbs? Not to mention my beard and adult acne. I agree about the podcasts with our three favorite hosts. I love the interviews but like them a la cart.
Leah – I’m not worried about Heyward. Stuff happens. Now, if it happens again in the near future, then I start to worry.
Bub – Thanks for the continued lobbying. I know that we were very, very guest heavy at the end of the season. And that was more a result of a bunch of opportunities presenting themselves in a short window as opposed to an intentional move. And we’ll take your request seriously.
