After years of threatening I finally took the leap and started a podcast, along with my fellow Twins blogger John “Twins Geek” Bonnes.
We taped it last night and discussed, among other things, the Delmon Young trade, Jim Thome hitting his 600th homer, and the Twins’ mess of a season.
Keeping in mind that it was our first try at podcasting, we have no idea what we’re doing, and we drank three pitchers of beer while recording it at a bar, I actually think it turned out pretty well.
Please give it a listen and let me know what you think:
Gleeman and The Geek: Episode 1
Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.
Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.
Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
