Podcast: All-Star voting, Rizzo, Pete Rose

SweetSpot blogger Dave Schoenfield and I met in the bucolic Bristol studios to discuss the great game of baseball, with many ranging topics for Tuesday’s Baseball Today podcast, including:

1. After hitting Marco Scutaro in the head with a pitch, was Stephen Strasburg afraid to pitch inside?

2. From fast and young to slow and ... well, you know, Jamie Moyer found work, again.

3. Wade Miley, NL All-Star? Yep!

4. Why do I want Derek Jeter to get more hits than Peter Edward Rose?

5. How are the fans doing for the AL All-Star voting?

6. What should we expect from Anthony Rizzo as he’s set for his Cubs debut?

7. David Ortiz, Hall of Famer? Other than in nickname, how does he compare with Edgar Martinez?

8. Ozzie Guillen catches a big mistake and still loses the game.

9. What does the future look like for Justin Smoak?

10. Are the Orioles playoff-bound?

It really was a packed Tuesday edition of the Baseball Today podcast, so download and enjoy. Dave and I will return Wednesday!
