Things got a tad out of hand on Thursday’s Baseball Today podcast with myself and Keith Law, but really, in a good and fun way. I think. Anyway, with apologies to Justin Timberlake -- don’t ask -- here were some of the topics:
2. Is Conor Jackson a good fit for the Red Sox? A few more veterans were sent to contenders late Wednesday, but a certain lefty reliever for the defending AL champs could really make a difference.
3. Today on "Cinema Today" we delve into why movies don’t follow the exact facts. Hey, it bothers me! Scott Hatteberg better hit left-handed in the upcoming "Moneyball" movie.
4. Craig Kimbrel breaks the rookie save record! How awesome! But we manage to bypass that meaningless tidbit to discuss a bigger, more critical picture involving the right-hander and his pals.
Plus: Excellent emails, more about the runs scored statistic, building the perfect new stadium, video in the minor leagues and a whole lot more -- with cat noises -- on a packed Baseball Today for Thursday! Check in Friday as I’m joined by Mark Simon and send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org!
