The vast majority of sports talk radio shows feature blowhards shouting their listeners and each other down while they rip the local manager and slumping star over last night's loss. I know that listeners appreciate it when hosts and guests go a bit deeper with their analysis than, "This guy's a bum! Fire/Trade him!" so I rarely pass up a media opportunity. This season, I've taken to scheduling all of my recurring radio hits on what I call "Do Shut Up Wednesday," as I talk baseball with some smart folks in the Baltimore, Toledo and El Paso markets. The nice thing is that anyone with an internet connection can tune in and hear a streamed broadcast, and some of the stations even archive the 10-20 minute hits, at least temporarily. The content varies between regional and national stories, and there's some overlap from show to show, but if you want to tune in, I can promise you that I strive to deliver something that's a cut above the usual, just as I do here and at Baseball Prospectus.
In the wake of this weekend's drama, I've got a couple of bigger appearances to add to this week's batch. This morning I did a video chat with Hardball Talk's Craig Calcaterra, discussing the Yankees, the post-Posada fallout, and how the order of events affects our perception of the AL East race. You can see it here. I spent a good deal of time talking about the AL East with WNST Baltimore's Rex Snider, which you can hear here; we run at 2:30 Eastern every week. Toledo's 106.5 "The Ticket" doesn't currently archive, but you can stream the broadcast at 4:15 Eastern. El Paso's KROD (no Mets jokes, please) streams here at 6:20 Eastern, and they've just started archiving as well. Finally, I did a spot on the Baseball Prospectus "Up and In" podcast's 1-year anniversary episode, speaking to Kevin Goldstein and Jason Parks; you can download that one here.
