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!

This week’s topic: stupid teams.

If you prefer to have a listen later, you can download the podcast by right-clicking 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.

And don’t forget! You can call us (hammered) at 1-855-FOUL-TIP, or email us (hammered) at GettingBlanked@theScore.com with whatever is sticking in your craw, and if the mood strikes us, we’ll dissect the best the Monkey Army has to offer.

  1. I’m not sure what my issue is, but whenever I click the download link here, or on any other podcasts it takes me to a player page instead of a download. Any suggestions gang?

  2. I think the last podcast you guys did was the Hall of Fame one

  3. AGAIN…..Stoeten and Taco from The League aka That Getting Blanked guy……speak like nerds who NEVER EVER EVER EVER IN THEIR LIVES played competitive sports…t-ball doesnt count…your beer league doesnt count….your house league doesnt count…smh.

    • Awww. Did we hurt the genius’s little mind when we told him unicorns don’t exist?

      • lol not at all. I am a genius. Thanks. On those specific subjects u guys are DEFINITELY speaking out of your asses. Admit it. Keep it moving.

        • Sorry, unicorns don’t exist. I know this must be difficult given how many times you’ve been told they do, but take a step back and think about it for a second.

          • Unicorns don’t exist but you running in circles via a reply in your own thread clearly does.

            • Odd that the meatheads still flock to the ‘nerd’ sites though. If you can find your thumbs, perhaps you too can create a sports blog. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll be entertaining enough to attract enough knuckle dragging Neanderthals to make a job out of it.

              • I love how all of you are avoiding my point and assuming im a meat head..not at all..i just played competitive sports and know the importance of clubhouse guys…idiot.

                again i’ll wait for u to be quiet as tits on the subject.

                • And I suppose you know for a fact that none of the guys on the podcast every played a competitive sport. And that none of the rest of us did either?

                • I’m gonna assume you never played professional sports in which case you’re just as much of an idiot as the bearded wonder. Unless you did play pro ball in which case good luck in your mayoral campaign Jose!

    • Ive always wanted to start up T-Ball Beer League

  4. Their reasoning on what a clubhouse guys does or his effectiveness is fucking laughable..even more so than when the beard said the most stupidest fucking shit “what do managers do?” lol…foh.

    • The fact that you think something has an effect doesn’t make it so, my friend. Especially since you’re, quite obviously, about as sharp as a bag of wet hair.

      Sorry.

      • I love how try to throw in a insult but refuse to acknowledge u have no frame of reference on the subject and clearly avoid my whole point. But cool. I also love the fact that if I show up for a beer at the bar yall like to gather at that you would even throw insults at anyone. Not a threat. Just noting that you reply with insults and tough-guy-ness of a fat out of shape guy much like most of the trollers on this site lol c’mon buddy. who are you kidding.

        • So what? They can’t run a comprehensive and intelligent blog for Jays fans? It’s about promoting discussion between fans. You mad bro? Why? Because they have an opinion? Get a brain.

        • I love you just posted about all the stuff that Stoeten does and in the same post, did every one of them.

    • THE BEARD HAS A NAME, GODDAMMIT

    • I think heinz’s point is that every team in the league seems to value these things, but because the blogging group can’t quantify its importance, to them it doesn’t exist and everyone else is dumb. its an extremely arrogant attitude. You’re basically saying every other gm in the league is a total retard for continually giving these people jobs.

  5. re: AA’s Sun Chat, I look forward to many a photoshop of AA with a bass in his hand, dream scenarios of he and Geddy Lee jamming, and “slap da bass” reference (as per this slice):

  6. “He’s clearly not on a scouting trip”

    Yeesh.

  7. I think the issue of “Who’s spot is he taking?” should be further discussed on the DeRosa signing… Who languishes in fucking Buffalo while this macot high fives the all-stars? Cooper? Gose? Sierra? Why not give these kids a chance?

    • My guess would be that the kids need more experience and that languishing on the bench,in the Show, does them no favours.
      You’d also get a better read on their ability by playing in Buffalo fulltime rather than the skewed stats of the PCL.
      It takes a different mindset to be the 25th player than it does to be a regular.

  8. Your sooper stoopid. Clubhouse #Nattitude is MAD important! Have you ever seen a team win anything ever without veteran presents? If the Jays were serious about winning they should of traded for Michael Young and batted him second so he could make the rest of the team awesome! You’d understand this if you ever left your basement and played professional baseball.

    • That ticks all the boxes

    • i get that you’re just making fun of that guy and defending stoeten… but have you ever seen a team that didn’t have a bunch of veterans win a title? i legitimately can’t think of one.

      • Have you ever seen a team – that wins a title or not – without veterans on it? I legitimately can’t think of one.

      • There are 25 players on a baseball team. It is almost impossible to build one without having a few players with multiple years of experience. If what you mean by ‘veterans’ is ‘proven winners’ then I would argue that the 2010 San Francisco Giants fit the bill. They did sign Pat Burrell (who was atrocious in the playoffs) but otherwise they were all youngsters or career losers (Aubrey Huff).

        Either way, it’s stupid to have this discussion. It’s like asking “have you ever seen a Super Bowl champion win without a white kicker? Then white kickers must be the secret to championship teams!”

    • Are the veteran’s giving out presents? Or is a type of present? What’s a veteran present?

  9. I feel like everyone in the whole world needs to see this. Alex Anthopolous jamming out with his brother and friend playing sweet home chicago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzCORj4Td8w ITS GOLD JERRY GOLD! Credit goes to Daniel George of jaysjournal for the find.

  10. Got my tickets yesterday for the Jays State of the Franchise shindig on Feb 5. Only 10 days to go before free eats and beer and the love-in with Gibby and AA. I expect DJF will be there.

  11. If I had a dollar for every time that Parkes publically announces that he is either sick or has a cold, I could take care of the Dodgers payroll.

  12. Just got the new “ballpark pass” email.

    Dear Blue Jays Fan:

    We would like to introduce the Toronto Blue Jays Ballpark Pass, which will replace the Toronto Blue Jays Fan Pass going forward. The 2013 Toronto Blue Jays Ballpark Pass has the same price and convenience of the Toronto Blue Jays Fan Pass and will be available for sale next week.

    As a registered purchaser of the 2012 Fan Pass, you are eligible to buy up to two Toronto Blue Jays Ballpark Passes between 10 a.m. on Wednesday, January 30, 2013 until noon on Friday, February 1, 2013 exclusively through your Account Manager at bluejays.com.

    In order to take advantage of this opportunity, it is important that you make sure you have access to our purchase flow BEFORE Wednesday, January 30 at 10 a.m.:

    Go to https://oss.ticketmaster.com/aps/tbjrc/EN/account/logout
    Enter your e-mail address and password. If you don’t know, or have forgotten your password, click on “Forgot Your Password?” and follow the prompts to have a password emailed to you.

    Look for an additional email reminder on Tuesday, January 29, 2013. In order to allocate available passes fairly we will adhere strictly to the maximum of two passes per account. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate specific seat requests. Passes will be assigned on a best-available basis and while supplies last. Seat relocations will not be available.

    Toronto Blue Jays Ballpark Passes do not include a ticket to Opening Night. A limited number of Opening Night tickets will be available when our single game tickets go on sale on February 15, 2013 at 10 a.m., but we anticipate they will sell quickly. Look for more information on our single game on-sale in the future.

    Again, on January 30, 2013 you will have the opportunity to purchase a Toronto Blue Jays Ballpark Pass, but there is no guarantee of purchase. Availability is limited and we will not be able to offer additional passes once the limited inventory is sold out.

    Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the ballpark.

    Regards,
    Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Club
