Podcast: No buzz for Diamondbacks
By Eric Karabell
It was Eric Karabell and Keith Law on Tuesday’s Baseball Today podcast and we had a good ol’ time with no cat noises, discussing many issues including these…
1. At the risk of beating the drum too many times, when Randy Wells throws a two-hit shutout at your offense in your stadium, you need more offense. Still.
2. Why is Kevin Kolb more popular these days in Arizona than Justin Upton? It’s sad, in a way, but the Diamondbacks keep on keepin’ on.
3. The AL Central race is still a race, as a rotation of Mark Buehrles takes on another led by the potential Cy Young winner. Can Ozzie’s bunch make this interesting?
4. Who is the young Texas Rangers outfielder replacing Nelson Cruz? KLaw tells all about him and fellow Cuban Dayan Viciedo.
5. An emailer ranks the managers, and while we don’t necessarily agree with how he did it, it’s an interesting list.
Plus: More excellent emails, a tired Jered Weaver, an awesome Desmond Jennings, the future for Lance Berkman and Andrew Cashner and a whole lot more on a packed Tuesday edition of Baseball Today! Download now!
