Great Moments in Self-Promotion: I’ll be on NBC SportsTalk tonight and tomorrow

6 Comments

Because you don’t get enough of my opinions around here, I figured it’d be good to let you know that tonight and tomorrow night I’ll be on NBC SportsTalk on the NBC Sports Network.  The show is on at 6pm Eastern each night and is replayed at 7PM and 11PM Eastern.

The twist this time: I’ll be live in the studio and sitting at the desk with host Erik Kuselias. I suppose they figured there was too much sexiness emanating from my basement lair and needed to get me on a more neutral playing field. Hey, I get it.

Anyway, I’ll be busting out of here shortly to head east for tonight’s show, where I’m sure we’ll be talking about All-Star stuff and first half stuff and all kinds of other stuff.  Oh, and since I’ll be in Stamford, Connecticut, I think I’m going to try to take in the All-Star Game from Bobby V’s restaurant.

Will I be ordering a wrap? You bet your fake mustache I will.

Andy Martino of SNY TV reports that the Mets “have gotten to the point of exchanging names with teams” in trade talks for closer Jeurys Familia. He says that nothing is imminent, but that we should expect a Familia trade “well before the deadline.”

Familia has 17 saves in 29 appearances, a 2.88 ERA and a 43/14 K/BB ratio over 40.2 innings this season.
