    Lookout Landing Podcast Episode 23: Zach Milkis and a lot of book talk

    in Baseball

    John is off finding himself in some wild west town or some bullshit, so staff writer Zach Milkis and fellow book enthusiast joins Kate this week. They talk “Deadgar Weekend” (™ John)  and try to wrest a tiny bit of joy out of what was truly a remarkable suckfest, with mixed results. Speaking of suckfests, Zach and Kate revisit their Curse of the Amazon and ponder if that's the reason for the Mariners' recent struggles. They also make fun of Parker Bridwell’s name for a while, because you make fun of things so they can't hurt you, and discuss the Orioles series, which was...a win? We guess?
    The duo take a moment out to appreciate the Mariners' women in baseball night, and then look over the upcoming series. Hint: here be dragons. But there might be good things coming in Haniger's return (which might mean bad things for Ben Gamel), Marco Gonzales might be fun, and Emilio Pagan (aka Zach's homeboy) definitely is.
    Other topics include: book shaming, Matt Christopher, the potential for a Mark Twain/Joyce Carol Oates twitter takedown, and how Jerry Dipoto might sign a ten-foot alligator (only if it had options, natch.)
    For some reason, Kate discusses the 1995 film Showgirls on not one, but multiple occasions.
    Music: "Fuego," Bomba Estereo; "We Can Work It Out," Stevie Wonder; "If There’s A Hell Below (We’re All Gonna Go)," Curtis Mayfield

    Stayin' Alive (BP Kansas City Episode 67)

    in Baseball

    The Royals haven't played very well in August, but they're hanging on. Despite their struggles, they're still in view of a path to the playoffs and the next two weeks will shape their destiny. With half their games against Cleveland and a series against Wild Card contender Tampa Bay, the Royals will have a shot to take control. If they slip up, they're odds get more and more slim.
    On top of that, we updated the Mike Moustakas home run chase. With the team record all but broken, we reflected on the symbolism and meaning of watching a long-standing record fall. We've been tracking this chase all season, so hopefully by our next episode, Kansas City will have a new home run king.

    7/31/17: Episode 62 - Haze From A Garbage Fire

    in Baseball

    This week, we chat with Lana Berry about this weekend's Giants vs. Dodgers series and the Dodgers playoff hopes. Meanwhile, Sami and Doug discuss the continued fecklessness of the San Francisco Giants: including the trade of Eduardo Nunez, a possible return of Pablo Sandoval, Brandon Belt's misadventures in base-running, and the looming trade deadline. The Dodgers are very good and the Giants are not. It's a lot of fun for the whole family.

    Jays Journal Podcast - August 14. "Cold Hard Facts."

    in Baseball

    Jays Journal Podcast - August 14. "Cold Hard Facts."
    The glorious reclamation project that is your 2017 Toronto Blue Jays continued their winning ways with the kind of effort not usually expected from names like Tepesch, Refsnyder, Lopez, Aoki; and yet this gaggle of replacement parts refused to capitulate in defeating Tampa Bay, 2-1. As the team jostles for position in a crowded wild card sweepstakes, there can be no doubting that this team still believes in itself and the possibility of post-season play.
    First up on tonight's jam-packed show is Sportsnet's baseball editor, Ben Nicholson-Smith (@bnicholsonsmith), who joins host Ari Shapiro in discussing: his impressions of this current homestand (3:15), how much credence should be given to media perspectives on what's fact versus fiction (4:17), how the Rays line up against the Jays in this crucial four-game set (7:17), thoughts on Josh Donaldson and if he should be considered an irreplaceable asset (11:57), and an exclusive update on the health and future of Devon Travis (15:22).
    Next, we're thrilled to bring you a round table featuring three brilliant baseball minds: Ian Hunter (@BlueJaysHunter) of The Sporting News, Colin Teskey (@TeskeyRadio) of the Fan 590, and Brendan Panikkar (@Panikkar37) of Jays Journal, as they offer us their candid thoughts on: if the 2017 edition of this team has any hope for a playoff berth (22:05), if being owned by a media company is a detriment to fan and franchise (27:33), if a redemption narrative ends up being a trump card for ownership (30:25), should fans view the price ticket increase as a blessing in disguise (32:45), and how they feel about Donaldson finishing his career as a Blue Jay (35:23).
