Whazzzzzzzuuuuuuup! It’s time once again for us to take our faces for radio and voices for print to the audio airwaves for the latest edition of The Getting Blanked Podcast.

This week, we’re joined by Jason Collette of DRaysBay, RotoWire, Baseball Prospectus, and a host of other baseball nerd hot spots to talk about the Tampa Bay Rays and get some last minute fantasy baseball advice. We also talk a little bit about bad general managers and the recently promoted Henderson Alvarez of the Toronto Blue Jays.

But don’t take my word for it. Check it out in all its glory, right here:

You can download the podcast.

Or you can subscribe to The Getting Blanked Podcast on iTunes, to have the podcast, live stream MP3s and other life changing materials delivered straight to your computer each week.

As always, Mint Musical Interludes courtesy of The Constantines and Arts & Crafts Records. You can celebrate homonyms and buy everything you hear here.

And don’t forget to follow Getting Blanked on Facebook, to find our “Extra Innings” video segment, in which we basically discuss a subject that we didn’t have time for during the podcast proper or rant on endlessly about something that only amuses us. This week: we walk around the office and try to hold the flip cam steady.

  1. Hey, first time writing on here. Normally writing on the Footy Blog. (Don’t hold it against me)

    I gotta say a quick word: Show me a guy who throws 101 mph and I’ll show you a guy getting Tommy John surgery in a year.

    I hate hearing a hot shot pitcher is being brought up where his curve and changeup pitches are in “development”. I think organizations have a responsibility for raising young players to throw more than smoking fast balls if they wish to have careers that last longer than my car’s oil changes.

  2. Whoa, let’s not blow this out of proportion. This isn’t Aroldis Chapman, where a fastball at less than 100 MPH is an abberation; I’m pretty sure Alvarez sits 95-98 and can touch (i.e. dial it up to) 101 at times. Besides, it’s not like his delivery is extra-funky or anything exceedingly worrying (full disclosure: I know it’s not perfect, but I don’t think it’s raising that many red flags).

    Besides from what I’ve heard today, his change-up’s pretty good as well. He’s just not gonna be a one-trick circus guy who comes up and throws smoke until that’s what his arm goes up in. He’s a pretty big prospect and AA wants to see just what he has in this guy at this point. Beyond inherent issues that Parkes pointed out in calling any young guy up, there’s really not that much to worry about right now.

  3. “The two of you, I guess we could say, are Bi-curious”

    I lost my mind right about there.
