Batting Stance Guy and Mark Whiten

When you’re trying to imitate stances for all of baseball, it helps to talk to someone who’s been around.  Enter Hard Hittin’ Mark Whiten, who played for 8 MLB teams in his illustrious career.  BSG took some time at spring training in Tampa this year to talk stances with the journeyman slugger.  Enjoy!

The 1986 New York Mets

The 1986 New York Mets

The Mets had a rough weekend, losing the subway series to the Yanks and ending their 7 game road winning streak.  And to add insult to injury, Johan Santana managed to tie the Mets’ single season record of 3 allowed grand slams in the process.  Ouch.  But fear not Mets fans, BSG is here to ease your pain with memories of times not so long ago.  So here they are, fresh out of 1986, the World Champion New York Mets.

Thome for Thome

Thome for Thome

It’s not likely that you’ll get face-time with one of the 50 greatest batters of your lifetime.  It’s even less likely that you’ll have recently been allowed to write abook about such a subject and get to show that batter his chapter in your book.  And it’s way way less likely that you’ll compare that batter to Pedro Cerrano as you hand him a copy of said book.  But when BSG meets Jim Thome, we’d expect nothing less.

BSG with the A’s

BSG with the A’s

If you’ve read his book, then you know BSG is a bay area native.  If not, Amazon’s got plenty of copies of A Love Letter to Baseball just waiting for you to enjoy!  So it was quite the homecoming last week when BSG took the field at Oakland Coliseum to chat it up with the A’s.  Only slightly less interesting to the crowd than the post-game fireworks, BSG was still able to talk stances with Andrew Bailey and Daric Barton.  Enjoy!

Questions from my Daughters for Drew Storen

Questions from my Daughters for Drew Storen

Last night the Washington Nationals drafted 17 yr old hitting golden boy, Bryce Harper, 1st overall.  Tonight, in a story receiving almost no media attention, the Nats pitching prospect phenom (say that 3 times fast) Stephen Strasburg, takes the mound for the 1st time.  Big news for sure, but the Washington rookie drafted after Strasburg last year (and called up first), Drew Storen, is the first of those 3 to play Questions From My Daughters with BSG, sooooo…… what’s bigger?
