Just a warning: today’s live stream might not be very good. After all, Derek Snider spent most of the morning lamenting the regular nature of these live streams. Despite being a solid contributor, he isn’t much of a leader. Parkes and Stoeten, meanwhile, spent the morning drinking beer and eating fried chicken in the break room while the rest of us blog weasels toiled away.
Myself? I don’t even have the commitment enough to attend. Too wrapped up in my own stuff to make a consistent effort for the team.
All these things matter greatly to the success of an outfit, of course. Unless we have a great show (and chat!) at which point all distractions are forgotten and Parkes and Stoeten are lauded for their camaraderie and questions about my reticence to join team activities are left unanswered due to my solid regular season numbers.
The National League takes the spotlight tonight as two teams seek an extra day of rest. If the Phillies and Brewers can shut the door tonight, it will be all Yankees, all the time tomorrow. Join the stream at 3:30 where we can laud A.J. Burnett, make fun of Tony LaRussa and give Cole Hamels some GD respect for once.
Join the live chat if you like your feedback more immediate and your interfaces more ICQ-ish, with the fun of polls and voting thrown in for good measure. And for a bonus video absolutely dripping in awesomeness.
Now that we have all that pesky “baseball” out of the way, we can get right into what really matters: pedantic awards arguments!
We asked you, the good readers of Getting Blanked, to supply us with your award winners and we listened, for the most part. Join the stream at 3:30 when we reveal our winners and react to some of our reader selections as well.
Hard to believe the regular season is now all but over. It is certainly over for the Toronto Blue Jays and possibly over for a host of other teams, including the overwhelming AL East favourites the Boston Red Sox.
Well well well. The final series of the season finds the Jays and White Sox playing out the string with Jose Bautista potentially watching form the sidelines. Is there another reason to watch these two teams at this point of the year?
Of course there is! Because as futile these three games might seem, an entire ocean of great baseball awaits us. Like the AL’s best player leading his team to a last-ditch Wild Card charge. The Getting Blanked team is a lot like Lewis and Clark during times like these. JUST BEYOND THE NEXT HILL LIES MEANINGFUL BASEBALL!,
Greetings! It is time for one of the final Getting Blanked live streams of the season. Join Andrew Stoeten and Dustin Parkes as they field a million questions about the new Jays logo and how sexy it will look stretched across Prince Fielder’s glorious man boobs.
