So Do You Want to Do a Podcast? (Oh, and Grichuk traded)


Those eyes one last time

So my plan to let the last thread ride another day hit a snag with the trading of Randall Grichuk to the Colorado Rockies for Ramiel Tapia and Adrian Pinto. We're now over 900 comments. And as many think another shoe is going to drop, a new thread seems prudent.

This also allows me to talk about something that will get lost in the comments. I had a meeting today with a podcast producer and I talked to him about the possibility of a JITH podcast, something I've heard bounced around for years. He said that being in different locations isn't a problem and he pointed me to a couple of sites that allow for recording independent audio tracks while having a discussion. I'm looking into them.

So that leaves commitment. Noopi is in but not until August. We can look at rotating hosts as a model, or designate the same group. We'd also have to talk about what would make this podcast different from other Jays podcasts. (The idea I came up was to interview a long-time Jays fan each time and have them share stories of players gone by.) We'd also have to decide on length. Personally I wouldn't want anything longer than 30 minutes but I'm leaving that up to the collective to decide.

To go forward, I need some people to commit to being on board at the beginning on a regular schedule. From there we can figure out logistics and structure. Even if you aren't interested, ideas are welcome. If we do this, it will be the public voice of the community. I want to make sure everyone has input in that.

1st Sportsnet Spring Training game thread


Pirates @ Blue Jays

Dunedin, FL

1:07 pm EDT

So today we hear our beloved broadcast team. I don't believe we're getting Shulman. Enjoy the dulcet tones of Buck Martinez.

Again, no lineup because who cares? We're not seeing any of our starting pitchers. Although, I do believe this is our first look at Chapman.

1st Televised Spring Training game thread (and WTFJITH)


Blue Jays @ Phillies

Clearwater, FL


Game is being broadcast both on Sportsnet and MLB Network so almost everyone should have access to it. Not our broadcasters, so be warned. I'm also not going to worry about posting lineups, because it really doesn't matter.

Looking for peeps to take on doing game threads. I'm not able to.

Day After Hump Day Gratitude


With all the thinks going on in the world we don't like, how about we spend some time talking about things we do like?

A friend introduced me to the Muscle Shoals documentary. I had no idea about the musical history of the place. Of the 4 main people followed in the doc, only one is still alive. Grateful that they were able to record this before they died.

What are you grateful for?
