I’ll Show You the Bronx Banter Breakdown IV

Alex Belth, Cliff Corcoran and I cut a snappy two-part video series for SNY.tv’s “Bronx Banter Breakdown” today. Part one is up at Bronx Banter, and in HD at SNY.tv. One correction to an assertion I made within this video: Pedro Martinez has one postseason start on three days’ rest, in the 1999 AL Division […]

The Bambino in Action

A note from somebody at the New York Times alerted me to this new-found footage of Babe Ruth swinging a bat and playing Yankee Stadium outfield circa 1928. The footage comes via 90-second silent 8-millimeter clip shot recently unearthed by a New Hampshire man from his grandfather’s home movie collection. It won’t win any awards […]

I’ll Show You the Bronx Banter Breakdown III

The third installment of the series shot Monday with Bronx Banter’s Alex Belth, Cliff Corcoran and myself is now up at the SNY.tv video channel. This one discusses the Twins, the Yankees’ first-round opponents (given that it was shot before Tuesday night’s Game 163 play-in, we also shot a Tigers’ segment that will never air). […]

I’ll Show You the Bronx Banter Breakdown II

The second installment of the series shot Monday with Bronx Banter’s Alex Belth, Cliff Corcoran and myself is now up at the SNY.tv video channel. This one previews the Red Sox-Angels series, and finds me in motormouth form trying to squeeze in all my points about the Angels’ offense and the Red Sox shoddy defense. […]

I’ll Show You the Bronx Banter Breakdown

Earlier today, I shot a series of short video segments with Bronx Banter’s Alex Belth and Cliff Corcoran for their SNY.tv video channel in which we discuss the 2009 Yankees, their playoff chances, and the rest of the AL playoff slate. Yes, we had to shoot two segments because the tossup in the AL Central […]

Death Scores a Hat Trick

Like everyone else, I was surprised and saddened by the death of Michael Jackson yesterday, capping a surreal day of celebrity demises that also claimed Farrah Fawcett and garage rock legend Sky Saxon. I’m old enough to remember when Thriller hit the racks and was all the rage; I didn’t have a copy, but my […]

JAWS Attacks the 2009 Ballot

Happy New Year, dear readers! It’s been about three weeks since I checked in here, a time during which I’ve been plowing through my winter workload, with a weeklong trip to England over Xmas and New Years thrown in as well. In the meantime, I’ve completed the entire JAWS series on the BBWAA Hall of […]

Hot Stove Video, Revisted

Happy belated Turkey Day, everyone. Here are the third and fourth post from the Bronx Banter video series that ran last week, starring Alex Belth, Cliff Corcoran and myself: Part Three is about Derek Jeter’s future, and Part Four covers our take on Mike Mussina’s Hall of Fame case. Speaking of which, I’m still waiting […]

Hot Stove Video

I don’t think I’ve mentioned this before, but my pals at Bronx Banter recently moved into some upscale new digs at Sportschannel New York’s website, SNY.tv. Congrats to them on the move and the recent expansion of their blogging staff. As part of their arrangement, BB and SNY are collaborating with some experimental video blogging […]
