    9/25/2017: Episode 68: Is Tim Lincecum Dead?

    in Baseball

    First, it's important to remember that the views presented on the McCovey Chroncast do not reflect the views of Grant Brisbee, SB Nation, Vox Media, most of the commenters on this site, or (and especially) the San Francisco Giants...
    Now that that's out of the way...
    I'm back. And, it is with a heavy heart that I must announce that I am at it again. Yes, I, the most negative human being ever born, have used portions of this podcast to be negative about the San Francisco Giants organization... in the form of swears. Don't worry, they're bleeped swears -- it's just one word in particular, used repeateldly -- and only directed at certain individuals in the abstract, as in, "this is what I say to people in the organization who want to use their second best hitter as a scapegoat for one of the worst seasons in franchise history." So, take from that what you will.
    But, beyond that, be prepared for the first 10 minutes or so to just be a lot of me talking at Sami and Doug as I catch myself up on the Giants after a long absence and finally get a platform to exhaust my dumb ideas. Oh, and there was a sound problem on my end regarding Sami & Doug's signal, so, they will sound a little soft. Also also, my new kitten is playing with her ball in the background for the first few minutes, if you're wondering what that batted ball sound in the background is all about. She never plays with that ball. She waited until I started recording. Haha, cats. They're the worst. 
    We also your Twitter questions, which all, conveniently, were variations on the same question. Oh, but before that, we try to figure out just where Tim Lincecum might be, since nobody can seem to find him.

    Reviewing Preseason Predictions (BP Kansas City Episode 75)

    in Baseball

    Well, I suppose it's time to hold ourselves accountable. Back during spring training, we predicted some over/under targets for certain players and reviewed them at midseason. With the 2017 season completed, it's time to pay up.
    We are very much not perfect and the results show it. Still, we took the time in this episode to discuss some Royals players' seasons, plus our reasoning for our predictions. It's a long episode but it's a long offseason, so there's plenty of time...

    Episode 51 - Expanding on Expansion

    in Baseball

    Tom returns to join John and Darius in a discussion of Joe Maddon's latest round of antics as the Cubs teeter on the brink of elimination. They also marvel at the Yankees' resurgence and the Astros' sudden inability to hit, before getting stuck into the rumours that MLB is considering expansion, which draws a broadly positive reaction from John and quite the opposite from Tom, and leads into the latest round of the DH debate. They also touch on the bizarre map that suggests north-west Canada hates the Padres, and the imminent hiring of Alex Cora as Red Sox manager.

    Jays Journal podcast - October 8. "Standards of Excellence."

    in Baseball

    Jays Journal Podcast - October 8. "Standards of Excellence."
    Although the post-season may have left the Toronto Blue Jays with nothing but cobwebs and scattered hopes strewn about their field of dreams; all is not lost - and on tonight's show, host Ari Shapiro brings you two of the most celebrated and respected baseball minds in the country.
    First, we're joined by blogger, writer, and contributor with the Sporting News MLB, Ian Hunter (@BlueJayHunter), who offers us his feelings on the end of the Bautista era (2:58), how a rough exterior influenced the perception of his legacy (5:15), if he believes the 2018 Blue Jays team will be an AL East contender (7:45), his thoughts on Donaldson and a murky future (10:30), if the team was meant to overspend on free agency (12:48), and if the departure of Jose is the first sign of a culture shift in Toronto baseball (16:15).
    Next, we bring you sports broadcaster and host of The Program on Sportsnet 650, Andrew Walker (@AndrewWalker650) who sits down to talk about what the future holds in store for next year (21:30), how Keith Law made his day (25:30), his thoughts on the Stroman-Osuna-Sanchez-Travis core (27:31), how different generations will reconcile the Bautista era (30:08), on Shohei Otani and if the team should make a play (34:22), and what to expect from the front office during the off-season (37:38).
