ESPN710 Weekly Radio Hit

I’ll be on with Brock and Salk at 12:30 pm today, and every Thursday going forward during the baseball season. Tune in, won’t you?

Here’s the audio of my interview with Salk – I come on at the half hour mark:

Also, I was on KJR’s “Baseball’s Best Podcast” with Andy Bunker today, which you can listen to here.

    I would like to see if they can top the intro the 1510 KGA folks did for you.

    I’d listen, but it conflicts with CSPAN3 showing the UK debates. Don’t fret, Dave, I’m sure you’ll do fine without my listenership (Is that a word? Seems like it should be.).

    I know what the intro will be like – they’re going to dredge up the “fast talker” bit from a few months ago.

    Don’t take any crap from Salk, Dave.

    And make sure their check cashes!

    Can’t wait to hear the Dye banter…

  5. Nate on April 15th, 2010 10:38 am

    I doubt that signal reaches me. Is the audio streamed or archived anywhere?

  6. Liam on April 15th, 2010 10:40 am

    Archived version of their shows are posted here usually the day of the show’s airing.

    They also have an online stream. (Under the listen live section, 710 ESPN Seattle)

    Can we expect another one of these comparisons again?

    I’ve actually done some experiments playing with audio speed (many media players offer this functionality) and it is true that most other commentators sound like Dave if you speed them up enough. The LL podcast, for example, begins to sound like Dave (other than the cracking-each-other-up-like-Car-Talk thing) at around 1.4x normal speed. Of course, that says nothing about the payload, just the rate of delivery.

    So I look at it as 40% more content for the same time commitment. And as a bonus, that content is 100% Dave (minus the interjections by B&S, which are really just bland white rice in Dave’s andouille gumbo).

    What are you thoughts on Jonny Gomes as a mid-season M’s pickup?

  10. Nate on April 15th, 2010 12:49 pm

    thanks for the link Liam.
    good listen Dave. Keep spreading the word “We don’t want Dye!”
    and yeah, as I am a first time ‘listener’, I can tell you do cover the words-per-minute thing pretty well.
    breathe man, breathe.

    I liked your response when asked if your opinion had changed and it was almost a surprise when you said it had not.

    It’s fun to contrast it with those that fluctuate wildly. Where our rotation is Felix and four scrubs one week and then what to do with Fister and Vargas when Cliff Lee is ready the next.

  12. profmac on April 15th, 2010 1:23 pm

    Dave – If you were the GM, what two players might you look at going after to inject a little more offense into this lineup in the coming month or so?

  13. killer_ewok18 on April 15th, 2010 2:05 pm

    I would go after Sweeney and Griffey.

  14. Paul B on April 15th, 2010 2:19 pm

    Dave’s andouille gumbo

    mmmm, andouille.

    Yah, agree on Dye. We need someone better than that. Heck, Sweeney and Dye both had almost identical wOBA’s last year.

  15. joser on April 15th, 2010 2:26 pm

    I’m pretty sure Dave is talking slower now than he did in his early appearances on B&S. Or maybe I’ve just gotten used to it.

    On to content rather than presentation: Dave’s point about guys becoming available a little later in the season is one I’ve be turning over in my head for a while now. Of course it happens every year, and maybe I’m just more aware of it this season, but it seems like more teams than usual have MLB-ready prospects that they sent down to AAA to start the season purely for service-time reasons; those reasons will be expiring shortly. Of course balanced against that are the inevitable (in general) but unanticipated (in specifics) injuries that cause teams to scramble for out-of-work or underappreciated scrapheap guys, at least temporarily. But some of those out-of-ST-on-the DL players will be re-entering rosters shortly also, so the usual April freeze on interesting transactions looks to be thawing soon.

    All of which is a preamble to saying I can’t wait to see what interesting and unexpected roster-upgrade suggestions Dave is going to make in future posts. Echoing profmac: if the DH/feelgood platoon continues to suck up the ABs with nothing to show for it, what rocks are the M’s going to be looking under to find another bat?

  16. MissingEdgar on April 15th, 2010 7:51 pm

    Thanks for posting the link to the B&S broadcast here. I hope you do that every Thursday as it’s a lot easier for me than trying to find it on their site, and I enjoy the interplay between you and Salk.

  17. ThundaPC on April 15th, 2010 9:39 pm

    51.9% pitches swung outside of the strike zone for Adrian Beltre? First 3-ball-count of the season recently!?

    Mamma Mia.

  18. heyoka on April 16th, 2010 9:36 am

    woooHooo Dave,

    you SQUASHED the Dye-to-seattle argument!

  19. joser on April 16th, 2010 11:59 am

    If you didn’t get your fill of DaveTalkingFast, that KJR’s “Baseball’s Best Podcast” was actually really good, albeit nothing especially new for people who read here regularly. I wanted to stick it out and listen to the Detroit blogger talk about his team, but the guy sounded like he was 12 years old. I just couldn’t do it. (If he actually is 12 years old and is running a baseball blog — good for you, guy!)
