I know a shuuto-eating grin when I see one. If that is the kind of smirk Nolan Ryan wears when his team is in the middle of losing a World Series, imagine the look on his face when he learned his team won the bidding rights to Yu Darvish.

We discuss the future of the Yu and what it means on this week’s edition of the Getting Blanked podcast. Also mentioned: the bizarre mutations of pregnant women and if honest is indeed the best policy.

Awesome, Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus (and host of their Up and In podcast) joins us to talk turkey on the biggest Japanese import since…well you know.

  1. Ahahahahhaha… Mr. Sparkle. Its hard to explain to my nieces and nephews that the Simpson’s used to be funny over 10 years ago.

  2. Sorry guys but at least Cox is a fucking journalist, stop attacking other guys work.
    Can you imagine if Cox or a real Journalist attacke your work, oh wait they dont fucking care or know who you are.
    I like you guys but if you want to be a real sports journalist stop attacking other guys work.
    Your not fucking funny.

    • That’s the misconception. I don’t want to be a real sports journalist. The majority of those guys are meat heads. I’m perfectly content to write about things that actually interest me, and as long as I remain relevant enough to gather readers, I’ll probably be able to carry on doing this.

      • Nothing wron gwith that. I just didnt know, thought rogers would never hire you simply because of guys like Cox.
        I like your work or i wouldnt be reading it man, you do a great job.

      • That’s why your work is better, you like what you do and dont have to make shit up to get your name out there or appeal to the masses.
        You are funny I always at least laugh once listening to your guys podcasts.

  3. Please tell me that title is a Boys Night Out reference!! Baseball and amazing music, my two bastard love children

  4. Excellent podcast. A full 1:30 of Mr. Sparkle put a smile on my face even in the absence of Yu.
