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.

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

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

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

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?

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

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 @ 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.
