Fansmanship Podcast – October 29, 2012
On today’s podcast, I chatted with college friend and Giants fan Matt Dale. We discussed the Giants second World Series win in 3 years (not two days, as I distractedly opened the podcast with). Matt sung the praises of Barry Zito, Tim Lincecum, and Gregor Blanco, whoever that is. Also, this Brandon Crawford sounds interesting… didn’t he get signed by the Clippers in the offseason?
My prediction is that the Dodgers will probably sign Blanco for 8 years, $80 million during the off-season — because we know how much the Dodgers like those recycled Giants. Speaking of the Dodgers, we talked about them as well. In case you are wondering, Adrian Gonzalez is actually only 30 years old, a full year younger than me. That makes him almost a year and a half younger than Matt. Carl Crawford is 31, but younger than me. Josh Beckett was the old man in the trade. He is 32. One year older than me. That settles that.
Matt used the word “Machiavellian,” which is notable. He will hopefully be a regular contributor to the podcast to give some Bay-Area perspective to our Central Coast and Southern California-biased blog. Hope you enjoy.
