Gleeman and The Geek #134: Cribs, Matt Garza, and Bathroom Etiquette

Topics for this week's "Gleeman and The Geek" episode included me giving John Bonnes a tour of my new place in Uptown, Matt Garza turning down the Twins' offer, Pedro Florimon's grasp on the shortstop job, when not to use someone's bathroom, Liam Hendriks' waiver wire tour, working from coffee shops, Josh Willingham's future, mailbag questions, hanging out at Bar Abilene with Meatsauce, speed dating, marriage analysis, and the joys of parking.

    Not that I don’t love listening to the entire podcast, but personally I’d find it very helpful in your description of what you talked about in the podcast if you would mention the time in the podcast those topics came up.

    Aaron, Are you planning to post your top prospects list this year? Link-o-ramas and podcasts are great, but I always love your mini-essays and more substantial blog posts. Maybe downtown living means no time for writing?

    Gleeman, did you ever get my logo submission? I haven’t heard from you in a month so I’m hoping the email didn’t get screwed up or lost along the way.

    Dude, my neighbor drives a Honda Fit, is in her 50s, and survives the winters pretty well. Another neighbor drives a Matrix, and we have a Kia Rio…small cars can handle just fine in the winter. You have lived in MN your whole life, so please disregard if this is all old hat, and I don’t mean to offend, but here are a few tips that will help a lot. Get good tires, maybe not snow tires, but good tires; factory tires are almost always crap. Pack a shovel and some chicken grit, along with a couple sand bags for weight, in your trunk. And then accept that almost everyone gets stuck sometimes, particularly in thick, wet snow. It sucks, but as you noted, most people are willing to help push and dig. Don’t move to Uptown and then buy a horrible SUV that blocks sight lines and aggravates on narrow side streets.
