Still going! The Getting Blanked show breaks down (I guess) all the latest and greatest news from the Wild Card World. 67% of the Getting Blanked team continue pushing hard against the Rise of the Orioles, for which there is sure to be considerable karmic Hell to Pay. We also make fun of Bobby Valentine because it is Monday and debate the National League MVP because Buster Posey.

The final Getting Blanked of the week! Today’s episode features the kind of raw, unfettered realness you’ve come to expect from the GB crew: mea culpas and breathless fanboyism – the total package.

We talk about the Wild Card races, a Jeter injury and the unstoppable A’s. Then Parkes falls on his sword for last week’s Prop Hate before we fire up an all-new edition of Prop Hate. Also: I talk to Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners. Seriously.

Hey guys, how’s it going? Me? I’m good. Thanks for asking, but let’s not get dragged down by the pleasantries. I know why you’re hear, and there’s no use pretending otherwise.

On today’s show we talked about Brandon Phillips’ accusations of racism, how the pennant races look with less than a month to go in the season, and the possibility of Major League Baseball pitchers using protective head gear while they’re on the mound. All this, and, as they say, a whole lot more.

THE MEDIA NEEDS TO STOP SCRUTNIZING THIS STEPHEN STRASBURG THING AND JUST LET THE TEAM DO WHAT THEY WANT. Or something. We talk about the Strasdown, the Dodgers struggles, the surprising Phillies question mark and the Rays/possible AL East clustertastrophe.

Plus, a Prop Hate first: an appeal! I counted 10 utterances of the word “shadows” on Sunday night but nobody else bothered to count. We need independent observers to offer their count before Parkes will drop his appeal and wear his punishment with honour. If you have MLB TV, take a gander at Sunday night’s first inning and drop your shadows count into the comment section.

Craig Kimbrel is so much better at his job than we are at ours, we dedicate the beginning of our show to his amazingness. Then we discuss Bobby V’s antics, the scary Brandon McCarthy liner and Shelby Miller’s debut.

Then, somehow, we talk with Manny Machado of the Baltimore Oriole. He’s very young but very patient. Well, relatively.

Fortunately, not everything in Toronto is as suspect as the ongoing mechanical integrity of the Rogers Center. The Getting Blanked Show is a well-oiled machine of punditry and wise-crackery talk about the broken Rogers Center, the broken Yankees and the broken records for broken attendance (broken the bad way.)

Plus the whole Prop Hate thing is ongoing, so vote for that (or don’t. SEE IF I CARE.)

On today’s Getting Blanked Show, we lament/celebrate the rise and continued success of the Baltimore Orioles, express our amazement over Atlanta Braves starter Kris Medlen’s recent success, pretend to feel pity for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and then discuss the merits of the six man rotation. This, and a whole lot more that has a much better chance than any Shins song of actually changing your life.

Over the next couple of weeks, we’re going to be posting these a little bit later than usual.
