The good folks at MLB keep calling my number, and I keep calling up Tie-a-Tie to pull together a competent Half-Windsor knot. Last Tuesday, Clubhouse Confidential invited me back for not one but two segments. The first one marked uncharted territory for me, participating in their “Mr. Inside/Mr. Outside” segment, in which a member of [...]
The second of two videos that the new Pinstriped Bible crew taped earlier this week is up here, weighing in at a meaty 13 minutes. In it, Steve, Cliff and I discuss the state of the team following the trading deadline. My worry, which I hinted at in my initial PB post, is the starting [...]
As I hinted at in my last post and as Duke Castgilione mentioned on the air with an exclusive, I have a new venue for my writing. Friend, colleague and mentor Steven Goldman has invited Bronx Banter’s Cliff Corcoran and myself to join him at the YES Network’s Pinstriped Bible blog. I can’t tell you [...]
Nothing to do with baseball, but after a friend showed off her Little Lebowski Urban Achievers t-shirt, I stumbled upon a UK-based website called Last Exit to Nowhere which numbers this beauty among their smartly-designed movie-inspired collection:
Can’t believe I missed that one given all the times I watched Dirty Harry during my formative years. The [...]
Back on February 28, I was part of the Baseball Prospectus team that visited the Yogi Berra Museum at Montclair State University in New Jersey. Beyond the usual business of promoting Baseball Prospectus 2010, the occasion was notable because HBO Real Sports sent host Bryant Gumbel and their production team to film the event and [...]
I’ve never worked in film, TV or video, but I have enough friends that do to know what a b-roll is: supplemental footage intercut with the main event in an interview, documentary or news report.
As such, this video has been cracking me up for the past couple of months. Too good not to share. [...]
Last week, Frank Thomas officially called it quits, not a huge surprise given that the 41-year-old slugger, who bopped 521 home runs in his career, didn’t play at all in 2009. Today I’ve got a column at Baseball Prospectus celebrating his career, his Hall of Fame case, and his place in history:
It’s no stretch to [...]
Not a whole lot to report here that hasn’t been reported elsewhere. The Hot Stove season is upon us and after busting my butt to cover the postseason, I’m playing catch-up with my allotment of Baseball Prospectus 2010 comments. With my wife out of town on a business trip for a few days, I’ve taken [...]
Just before signing off early Thursday morning in the wake of the Yankees’ World Series win, the YES network ran a montage set to Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind,” the song which had become this team’s anthem; the rapper performed it live prior to Game Two of the series, the one I attented. In my [...]
Alex Belth, Cliff Corcoran and I cut a snappy two-part video series for SNY.tv’s “Bronx Banter Breakdown” yesterday. Part two, covering the lineups, is now up at Bronx Banter.
While you’re there, check out Cliff’s excellent piece on the 1950 World Series and its future ramificiations:
To give you a sense of just how long it’s been [...]
