MLB Week in Review : 05.31.10

MLB Week in Review : 05.31.10

Sorry for the delay on the weekly review folks.  What can we say, even BSG enjoys a good Memorial Day in Tahoe.  But we’ve got you covered on all the past week’s top stories from around the league.  Be it Buster Posey jumpstarting the Giants’ offense, Mr. Perfection himself, Roy Halladay, going for the 2nd perfect game in a matter of weeks, or the marriage of his cousin Libby Frantz, BSG’s on the case.  Enjoy!

BSG in Japanese – The Contest

BSG in Japanese – The Contest

TRANSLATE VIDEO AND WIN A SIGNED COPY OF THE BSG BOOK!!

The other week BSG made an appearance on the LA-based Japanese network, UTB Hollywood.  He had a great time, and the segment looks wonderful, but our Japanese is, well… rusty.  Sure we could use Google Translate, but we thought we’d turn to the BSG community to help us out.  So be the first to post a transcript comment on this site following the guidelines on the page, and we’ll send you a signed copy of A Love Letter to Baseball.  Sound good?  Then get translating!

BSG on KNBR 680 – Murph & Mac

BSG on KNBR 680 – Murph & Mac

Yesterday BSG made a media assault on the Bay Area, visiting most every sports broadcasting crew in SF to talk about his new book, A Love Letter to Baseball.  He started the day off with KNBR 680 and our good friends at the Murph and Mac Show.  You’re probably thinking that batting stances don’t play that well on the radio, and you wouldn’t be wrong.  Thankfully they had the wherewithal to take some video.  P.S. if you get the chance to visit, they like the chocolate old-fashioned’s.  Enjoy!

Nationals Pre-Game

Nationals Pre-Game

Just finished a rainy day game at AT&T park where the Giants got something like 5 singles in a row in the 7th to takedown the Washington Nationals 5-4 and win the series 2-1.  It’s been a Nationals kinda week for BSG, so we figured we’d the keep the ball rolling with a little pre-game stance discussion with the MASN crew.  Enjoy!

BSG will be in the San Francisco Bay Area tomorrow (more on that later) where the Giants are currently taking on Ryan Zimmerman and  the Washington Nationals.  He recently got a chance to sit down with Zimmerman to play a round of “Who Knows you Best.”  So if you like the sound of two men drinking Gatorade, and obscure questions and answers with MLB All-Stars, then this interview’s for you.  Enjoy!

2010 Rangers

2010 Rangers

The Rangers looked good in their first test against prominent division rivals, the Oakland A’s, winning the series this week 2-1.  And as they head up to Toronto today to challenge the mighty Blue Jays, BSG takes a look at what makes this such a great stance team.  With the Angels on the decline, C.J. Wilson getting things done on the mound, and Hamilton, Kinsler, and Cruz at the plate, might this be the year the Rangers add a 2nd win to their postseason journal?  Or is it just the year you buy a book about batting stances?  Either way, it’s the 2010 Rangers.

2010 Reds

2010 Reds

Just to prove that we haven’t forgotten our roots now that we’re big time published authors, today we continue on with our team “preview” series.  We’ll kick things off with the Reds, who, as BSG notes, haven’t seen a winning season since 2000.  But things are looking up in Cincy these days, and partially thanks to the stance magic of Brandon Phillips, the Reds currently find themselves only a game back of the mighty Cardinals.  In a preview that takes an equal look at fertility and baseball, here are the 2010 Reds.  Enjoy!

BSG @ ESPN

BSG @ ESPN

To say BSG was “at” ESPN today, might be something of an understatement.  He was all over it for book release day.  The good folks in Bristol, CT took care of our boy all day long as he stopped by First Take, ESPNEWS, SportsNation, and SportsCenter with John Kruk.  These are still airing in various fashions on the Worldwide Leader, so check their schedule now.  We’ve captured the day in image form on the facebook fanpage, and you can checkout the online SportsNation chat here.  And there are still SportsCenter broadcasts to come.  Whew, what a day.

From the way things have started out there, whoever comes outta the NL West this year is gonna have to win a fight.  Will it be the Rockies?  Gammonds and Reynolds like em, but does BSG?  He got an inside look at the rocky mountain boys last year, but, as usual, it’s the lineup that interests him most.  And for our daily reader Don Baylor, he’s got a couple suggestions on how to manage your hitters.  It’s the 2010 Rockies.
