MTAF Podcast #141: Jeff Nomina on the Cleveland Indians and Twitter Moments

Josh (@Railbirdj) is joined by Jeff Nomina (@SportsNom) to talk about

  • The Indians… are not very good
  • Wait. Maybe they are.
  • We don’t think so, but it’s not like we’re monsters about it.
  • Do you really trust the Indians?
  • Jeff thinks the Indians should move.
  • Seriously, there’s REAL talent on this team, why are they bad?
  • Have advanced stats lulled us into a false sense of security about the team?
  • Shovel Girl was the best twitter day ever…
  • … before DeAndre Jordan turned his back on Mark Cuban and was held hostage by the Clippers in his own house.
  • Work is a lonely place after a great twitter night.
  • Someone needs to make a shovel girl gif of DeAndre Jordan throwing the shovel at Mark Cuban.
  • And that gif needs to play at my funeral.

MTAF Podcast #138: Back in the Saddle with Chris Barron

Josh (@Railbirdj) is joined by Chris Barron (@ChrisRBarron) to talk all things life and baseball. It’s been a while since Josh recorded a podcast, and frankly, the intro levels are all wrong. If you can sit through a couple minutes, we promise it gets better as he remembers all the controls.

  • In 2003, Massachusetts became the first state to legalize gay marriage. The fact that SCOTUS ruled to make gay marriage legal nationwide after only 12 years is astounding.
  • We are living in a Civil Rights Era. It may not feel like it right now, but we are.
  • #BoycottMississippi (Maybe)
  • Sports is a microcosm of society.
  • I PROMISED WE’D TALK ABOUT BASEBALL.
  • Best and worst of the MLB; the St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies.
  • Thank God Ryne Sandberg didn’t muster this 119-159 managerial record in Chicago.
  • Once again; never hire someone you can’t fire.
  • Celebrating Almost; the 2015 Cleveland Indians throwing a party for the 1995 team.
  • Would the Pirates do the same for the 2013 Pittsburgh team that broke the 20-year losing season streak?
  • Maybe I was wrong to be so harsh on the Tribe.
  • The Kansas City Royals are taking over the All Star Game, and it’s awesome*.
  • *Sort of, considering fan voting is a farce and an exhibition meaning something is even worse.
  • The wave is also terrible.

Tribe Time Now: Weekend Update #12: Can’t Score? Run More

Joe Coblitz (@BRBBlog) from Burning River Baseball and Bob Toth (@TheBobToth) from Did The Tribe Win Last Night? got together on a Sunday afternoon to solve all the Indians problems and failed miserably. Of the things they were unable to do becoming more aggressive on the base paths, firing the hitting coach and trading Carlos Santana are included. At least they were able to determine whether the Indians and White Sox will be buyers or sellers at the deadline…what do you mean they couldn’t even do that?

Topics:

  • Van Burkleo
  • Toru Murata
  • Tribe Records
  • Buyers or Sellers
