    The Catbird Speaks 11.30.16 - Waiting for death

    in Baseball

    The gang of James Fegan, Ethan Spalding, Collin Whitchurch and Mark Primiano gather together to once again ponder the seemingly immiment but possibly never happening White Sox rebuild.
    --Will Chris Sale get traded? How long will it take? Can they rebuild without dealing Sale?
    --What about one-year rentals for Todd Frazier and Melky Cabrera? When do the Sox get moving on that?
    --If the Sox don't move Sale, do they roll the dice on winning in 2017 without making any effort to improve?
    --Can Jose Abreu get traded in this market?
    --What if the Sox keep Jose Quintana? Can they build around him?

    The CBA and You (BP KC Episode 36)

    in Baseball

    Baseball avoided another work stoppage and agreed to a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, and while it's not dramatically different, there are notable differences from the system you may have gotten used to over the past five years of the current agreement.
    So we covered those details and ins and outs, and related them to what the Royals may do as they prepare for 2017 and beyond.
    For more from BP KC, check out David Lesky's thoughts. Craig Goldstein also has a deep look at the details on Baseball Prospectus.
    Follow the Vault at @KCBaseballVault. Follow host Jeff Herr at @TheJeffReport, co-host Michael Engel at @michaelengel. You can also email feedback to KansasCityBaseballVault@gmail.com. Email us a question and if we answer it on the air, we’ll send you a gift certificate to our friends at Kelly’s Westport Inn.

    Episode 36: Replacing the Departed and Subverting the Narrative

    in Baseball

    The guys discuss their favorite moments of the 2016 postseason before closing the book on a magical season and discussing potential offseason moves.
    While they appear to have obvious candidates for Dexter Fowler, Jason Hammel, and Aroldis Chapman—things aren't as simple as they might appear.
    Epstein and the Cubs have another busy offseason ahead of them. 
    Here are our top moments from the postseason:

    Episode 29: "Butch Goldstein and The Balsamic Kid"

    in Baseball

    In Episode 29 of For All You Kids Out There, Jeffrey and Jarrett discuss the paucity of Mets news for the week. The Rule 5 adds quickly get sidedrained into a consideration of whether Phil Evans would make the Marlins Top Ten. Jarrett is very excited about Eric Campbell's NPB career, and we are both pretty copacetic with Neil Walker accepting the qualifying offer.
    In the second half of the show we are joined once again by Craig Goldstein to discuss the rest of the NL East farm systems, Jeffrey defends his Dominic Smith and Andres Gimenez rankings, we all compare Lucas Giolito and Robert Gsellman again, and no one really wants to talk about the Marlins farm system.
    In the third half of the show, Jeffrey and Jarrett barely make it through housekeeping without getting distracted, then we answer your e-mails, and then Brady comes on for an hour (where did I lose control of this show) to talk about Rick Porcello and the pro wrestling.

    Finally, Kaitlin McCabe looks at a forgotten Met that also has ties to the Cubs, Mike DiFelice. (57:53)

    11/19/2016: Episode 45 - Season Finale with Grant Brisbee

    in Baseball

    It is with a heavy heart that I must announce that the Chroncast is at it again, but just one last time in 2016. That's right, after this week's episode, you won't have me or Doug to kick around anymore! Joining us this week for an appropriate send-off is Baseball's Grant Brisbee. 
    What's the best course of action for the Giants to take heading into 2017? Do the recent Gold Glove awards make a whole lot of sense? What does it mean that the pitching is good? Who were the top 2 homegrown Giants by OPS last season (without looking it up!). 
    Beyond that, we answer one last round of your always excellent Twitter questions and decide, once and for all, what band reminds Joe Maddon reminds us of the most. 
    Doug and I thank you for listening to and supporting us all season long. We'd also like to thank all of our wonderful guests, from Grant Brisbee to Grant Brisbee, and all the Grant Brisbees in between. Actually -- seriously -- thank you to Jen Mac Ramos, Roger Munter, Wendy Thurm, Reuben Poling, Carmen Kiew, Bryan Srabian, Mike Ferrin, my buddy Joe, Jason Wojciechowski, Dan Szymborski, Goofus, thirteenthirteen, jponry, and kdl for taking time out of your busy schedules to help make this thing a real thing. 
    We'll be back next season

    Episode 28: "All other forms of boredom advertised as poetry"

    in Baseball

    It's Episode 28 of For All You Kids Out There. It's been a weird week, folks. We've lost Leonard Cohen and Bartolo Colon, two of the muses of the pod. We will soldier on though as we try and figure out what happened to the 2017 Mets starting pitching depth, ponder the qualifying offers to Neil Walker and Yoenis Cespedes, propose Jay Bruce trades, and go deep on the upcoming Rule 5 draft protections. 
    In the second half of the show we are joined by Trevor Strunk of Baseball Prospectus to discuss the Phillies and Braves prospect lists. We pick our sides in the epic Cozens/Hoskins feud and try and figure out how good the Braves will be in 2017.
    In the third half of the show we answer your e-mails and Facebook queries and then Jarrett talks about UFC 205 for a freaking half hour. You've been warned.
