The MLB Network folks haven’t been calling my number lately — the afternoon schedule is filled with spring training games — but no matter. I’m now in the virtual Rolodex of the producers of Olbermann. On Monday, I made my third appearance in as many months for a breezy around-the-horn chat with Keith Olbermann about several articles I’ve written lately at SI.com: the Christian Yelich extension, fellow Marlin Dee Gordon’s potential to be among the NL’s busts, the Mets’ Travis d’Arnaud as a breakout candidate, my season preview of the Twins and the impact of new manager Paul Molitor, and finally, the thorny issue of Pete Rose’s reinstatement and potential Hall of Fame candidacy:
A good time was had by all on a slow news day. For whatever reason, the three spots I’ve done for Olbermann (one with fill-in Adnan Virk) have been as relaxed as I’ve ever been on camera. Here’s hoping there are more in the future!
