MLB Week in Review : 06.14.10

MLB Week in Review : 06.14.10

Coming late to the party on a Monday evening, it’s the MLB Week in Review, Week 10 edition.  This one’s for the kids, as BSG takes a look at the youth of the baseball nation.  It was a big week for the Nationals youth, with Bryce Harper, Strasburg, and our buddy , Drew Storen on the scene.  And even the US – England World Cup match couldn’t top the Daniel Nava, rags to riches story.  It’s the Week-In-Review!

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!

Strasburg’s 1st At-Bat

Strasburg’s 1st At-Bat

14K’s.  Not a bad start.  But was the stance better?  You be the judge.

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?

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!

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!

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!
