WFNY Podcast 2012-11-14 – Craig and Jon discuss Marlins firesale and what it means for baseball

WFNY Podcast Logo

The cool thing about the podcast is that when something happens and even before I have a chance to outline the issue in my brain, I can send Jon an email begging him to talk to me about it on Skype. Jon, who has a nightmare travel day and wasn’t going to be able to write about anything for today, let alone this breaking news, gives me a 30 minute window, throws the headset on and we talk through it together. We are in the future people. And I like it.

  • Did the Toronto Blue Jays really just become contenders?
  • What does this mean to Bud Selig and fellow baseball owners to see the Marlins bait and switch?
  • Given a free-spending ownership group, would you support this trade, baseball-wise, if the Indians got back what the Blue Jays just got back?
  • The Blue Jays just took back more payroll than the entire Indians organization in five players.
  • What about the free agent market and the Marlins artificially bidding it up one year?
  • Are the Indians gearing up to be sold?
  • And much much more…

    Jon has lost some credibility with opinions on the Indians to not know about Keith Hernandez as an Indian.

  • Harv 21

    Not his fault, it’s an age thing. He’s also shaky on the diff between Milli Vanilli and Vanilla Ice.

  • mgbode

    they are both terrible. what more needs to be said?

  • Harv 21

    Nice job, guys.
    BTW, given a choice I would rather have the rich, impetuous owner who periodically goes for it and then petulantly destroys it than the poor owner who promises to “build this thing the right way” but never can.

    I admit… I’m 32 and I had no idea Keith Hernandez! was an Indian… I did know that he was on Seinfeld though.

  • mgbode

    I only remembered for 2 reasons:

    1. We ended his career (he seemed to be aging relatively well until he set foot in Cleveland)

    2. He single-handedly kept alive the great Cleveland Indians mustache tradition for 1 more solid season (following Brook Jacoby, Doug Jones, Julio Franco, Cory Snyder, Mel Hall, Alex Cole, etc.). I still remember the jokes that Brett Butler wasn’t a good team player because he was notoriously clean-shaven.

  • Vindictive_Pat

    Nice! I remember all of those names and going to games at Municipal Stadium to see them, but didn’t realize they had staches.

  • mgbode

    Brook Jacoby’s career downturn is linked directly to the shaving of his fanstatic ‘stache.
    (my Dad still rocks his and therefore he was quick to note which ballplayers also rocked them.)

  • Vindictive_Pat

    Coincidence? I think not! Also, just a reminder that it’s “No-Shave November”. You don’t necessarily have to grow a mustache, but you have to have some kind of facial hair going on. It’s Common Law.
