Alright! It’s time for our regular Thursday trip around baseball to talk about the interesting topics (TM), with a little Jaysturbation (or not), cooking tips, heresy, trains (?), car noises, and even more depressing realizations about just how ridiculously out-of-whack MLB’s alignment is thrown in for good measure (or not): it’s a brand new episode of the Getting Blanked Podcast!

Today’s topic: early-winter transactions.

If you prefer to have a listen later, you can download the podcast right here.

Alternately, you can hit up the Getting Blanked iTunes page, which is humming along these days, and from now on until the end of eternity will have all our podcasts, mp3s and whatever other audio goodies we dream up posted there in a timely manner.

  1. Thank. God.

  2. I’m second!!!

  3. I stopped riding a bike downtown about 3/4 years ago. Too many near misses and jaw dropping moments of “did that driver just really do that!?!”.

    I’ve accepted the fact that I chose to live in a place where to get wherever I have to go I have to navigate around people driving 2 tonnes of steel.

    I’ll walk, take the sub, maybe a cab in a pinch. If I don’t even feel comfortable passing a side street with a car at a stop sign I’ll either wait for eye contact with the drive or clearly point (yes, like we’re told to do at cross walks).

    Am I a Freydy Cat? Am I letting Rob Ford and the war on bikes win? To anyone who suggests that may I recommend that they put their Misfits t-shirt back in the closet and realize that whatever “rights” or abstract “freedoms” one believes they posses don’t mean a thing when your trying to survive in the concrete jungle.

    Whatever reason one may have to ride a bike it does not exceed the value of ones health and life.

    Every time you feel an ache in that knee Dustin, ask yourself if its worth it.

    • He was walking, but I hear you… except… I gotta go ride home, so I can’t really elaborate.

    • Dustin is an example that by merely walking you are still not safe. Of course, riding a bike in the city is more dangerous than walking, but it is far and away the most efficient. Walking is for suckers and takes forever, the ttc is often unreliable and/or slow, and driving is downright ludicrous, especially since I pass cars with ease on my cycle. The main problem is people are not aware enough of cyclists, so it is important to establish a presence (lights, bright coloured clothing, etc.). But the best way to improve safety in this city? MORE CYCLISTS


    But seriously, why the fuck isn’t this on iTunes….
