Gleeman and The Geek #90: Star-Studded Brewing

For this week's "Gleeman and The Geek" episode we were joined by Parker Hageman of Twins Daily and Adam Schill of 612 Brew, and topics included what Oswaldo Arcia means for Chris Parmelee, Miguel Sano's timetable, more injury hijinks with Darin Mastroianni, David Ortiz's speech to Boston, Dick Bremer and Bert Blyleven on "cyber"metrics, the youngest players in Twins history, the Minnesota Business subscription drive, and where Jamey Carroll is hiding.

    Bonnes looks very Adam Westish in that pic.

    It was nice chatting with you Saturday. Did you guys end up heading over to Indeed Brewing afterwards?

  • Shane

    Haha, I like the pictures. It adds . . . something to the podcast.

    Awesome podcast, I will say though that there have been numerous articles talking about Blyleven’s good relationship with Rich Lederer (the main advocate for Bert) – including one from Lederer himself – so I don’t think his views on sabermetrics are any personal attack on Lederer.

    After reading the MILB article about the HR ejection I just had to go to Baseball Reference to do a minor league career comp on Sano to Miggy Cabrera.

    Miggy was about a yr ahead of Sano and called up by Marlins at age 20 when he was AA, but still…
