NBCSports.com Season Preview Videos
Home-wrecker Gregg Rosenthal swoops in to steal Jason Kubel from me in the outfield preview, the third-base video includes a discussion of whether or not my mom would approve of me choosing Ryan Braun, and the starting-pitcher breakdown ends with me explaining that I'm on the rebound after losing Johan Santana and have my eye on Francisco Liriano. And if you don't find the man-crush theme particularly amusing, take solace in the fact that the lovely Tiffany Simons co-hosts each video.
The shows are each only a few minutes long, we cover a lot of topics, and in addition to all the baseball talk you can look at Tiffany or wonder exactly how many pounds I've gained back since my Fat-O-Meter days (more on this tomorrow, sadly). The videos were my in-studio debut--with bright lights, ear pieces, and producers on a fancy set--so you can judge for yourself how things went for me in the unfamiliar position of being in front of the camera.
