The 3nd week is well underway, and we had some great shows to listen to over the last week – courtesy of the following BBBA shows.
Sully Baseballtalked about the passing of Prince, the horrible uniforms of the D’backs, and the lunacy of specialty MLB Hats On certain Days. Sully also interviews Stacey Gotsulias about the Yankees and around the league. He pulled no punches in addressing the Curt Schilling fiasco. And how sure hall of famers to be 5 years ago are not now.
BBA Live! is entering its second season. Listen in as AC Wayne is again joined by Ricky Keeler of Yanks Go Yard and District On Deck (Nats) as we discuss all the latest news and headlines throughout the league. Tentatively scheduled, as always: Rich Rivera of Mets Public Record.
Share(1)TweetThis week, Shawn Anderson and Lou Olsen talk with National Bobblehead Hall of Fame co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar.
Phil tells the boys about his dream to bring a bobblehead museum to downtown Milwaukee, how and why Pete Rose was chosen as the inaugural member of the Bobblehead Hall of Fame and the one bobblehead he would love to get his hands on.
Jays From the Couch brings you Episode 70 of the Jays Nest Podcast. This week, we discuss the ups and downs of the very young 2016 season for the Toronto Blue Jays
Episode 70 of the Jays Nest Podcast features lots of discussion around the early season tire spinning of the Toronto Blue Jays. They haven’t been able to gain any momentum thus far and that has some folks upset. There indeed have been struggles to dissect, but there are also some highlights worth discussing…so we do. We discuss what Jose Bautista‘s current play means for his impending free agency. All this and reader questions to satisfy your Blue Jays craving.
We started our chat with a look at some smaller news items: Roberto Osuna dealing with a blister counts as news, right? As well, catcher, Humberto Quintero was released.
In the run of a season, there are going to be rough patches. We dig into the rough patch for the Blue Jays first base tandem of Justin Smoak and Chris Colabello. This duo was so good for the club last season, but has not lived up to that in the early goings of 2016.
It seems that the popular talk in Blue Jays Land is about the struggles, but there have been some bright spots, believe it or not. We offer up Aaron Sanchez and his starting pitching brethren as examples.
We discuss our preferences for the batting order with the recent insertion of Michael Saunders in the leadoff spot.
In this edition of our Hot Takes, I make the argument that Jose Bautista is not helping himself in the early goings, despite his otherworldly ability to walk.
We wrap up with some reader questions, as always.
The Jays’ Nest Podcast is a weekly show hosted by Keegan Matheson of Jays Journal and myself (Founder of Jays From the Couch, Shaun Doyle), featuring recaps, news, opinion, analysis, special guests, and more.

Conversations with C70 (A St. Louis Cardinals Podcast) Follow @c70
On the eve of the 2016 regular season, Daniel gets a chance to talk with the man that goes by StlCardsCards on Twitter. The two talk about how CC became a Cards fan and how easily he could have been on the wrong side of the rivalry. There’s talk about Twitter, how it’s used, why it’s read, and how he came up with the perfect blog title. Then the two turn their attention to the 2016 Cardinal roster, going over the strengths and weaknesses in preparation for the first game in Pittsburgh.
Every week, two of the Best Fans in Baseball (TM) bring you all the news and analysis you need about the St. Louis Cardinals. It’s been a pretty wild week for the Cards, with plenty of runs and a good number of wins. Daniel Shoptaw (C70 At The Bat) and Tara Wellman (Bird Seeds) talk about the surprising offensive explosion and how long it might last. With Ruben Tejada on his way back, what does that mean for Aledmys Diaz? While much of the pitching has been good–and Jaime Garcia was amazing–Adam Wainwright has continued to struggle. When do we start worrying about him? All that and much more!
