Self-promotion theater: I’ll be on NBC SportsTalk tonight, tomorrow and Friday

3 Comments

The Stamford, Connecticut Marriott is getting pretty sick of me lately, but tough. I’m heading there again today for what are becoming increasingly regular appearances on NBC SportsTalk on the NBC Sports Network.  I’ll be on tonight, tomorrow night and Friday night at 6PM Eastern.

For the first time I’ll have another bona fide baseball person with me as Sports Illustrated’s Joe Sheehan will be there too.  I hope he’s just day-tripping up from New York, though, because I think that Marriott only has one Mother’s Basement Suite. This is a common problem when internetty baseball writers congregate anywhere.

Also on the show will be Hines Ward.  Which, due to the restraining order, is the closest I’ll ever be allowed to any “Dark Knight Rises” cast members.  How much ya gimme to deadpan something to him while on the air like “so, do you think the Gotham Rogues will be able to come back after the whole team died and stuff?”

Anyway, turn on, tune in and drop whatever you’re doing to catch NBC SportsTalk this week.  Thank you for your support.

Corey Seager will be included on Dodgers’ World Series roster

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.

Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.

Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
