2012 NLDS Game 1: Cincinnati Reds v. San Francisco Giants

While the podcast count will not reset (I’m a total size queen), today marks a new and improved rebirth for the Getting Blanked podcast. As detailed in the introduction, the daily fireside chats with Lewis, Stoeten, and Parkes will return from time to time but from now on the Getting Blanked podcast will be a weekly affair similar to what you hear today. Talking with guests and “experts” in the “field” about baseball stuff. The future plan is also to make the post accompanying the ‘cast a little more substantial, pivoting off some of the topics discussed during the show.

The “stuff” will change from time to time but, for today, we speak with two guests. Ted Berg of USA Today’s For The Win is a long-time friend of Getting Blanked and we talk about the end of Derek Jeter, the future of the Mets and the American League playoff race.

Then C.Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer joins me to talk about the Reds (who are very good) and the National League playoff chase (which is also really good.)

All the other stuff is still true. You can (and should!) still subscribe to Getting Blanked on iTunes. Or hook up the RSS feed here if that is more your style.

Some of the music was still provided by The Constantines and Arts & Crafts Records and Deathwish Records. For that we remain very grateful. Check out the full catologue and buy what you like. It’s the right thing to do.
