My latest baseball insider appearance with the inimitable Roger Lajoie of Sportsnet 590 in Toronto, talking about the Blue Jays 25th anniversary of their 1992/1993 World Series championships. We also covered: the quagmire that is pace-of-play initiatives in the sport, what to expect from the starting rotation in 2019, Kevin Pillar’s regression and what it means for this pop-gun offensive lineup, the challenge of bringing up Vlad Guerrero Jr. in a lost year bereft of competitive purpose, and how to deal with the 46 remaining games of a long and miserable baseball season.
About The Author
Ari Shapiro is a writer, podcaster, and publisher with over two decades of experience working for monolithic corporations before one day realizing that the value of pure human ingenuity and creative literary expression is worth far more than being a capitalist ronin prick who drives a nice BMW. He’s a dashing technologist by day and a cunning journalist by night running one of the last independent and underground media hubs featuring articles from a cadre of ruthlessly talented contributors. He also discovered J. R. R. Tolkien at ten years of age, King Crimson by twelve, and ran the city’s most popular bulletin board system at fifteen. Now mired in adulthood, he yearns to avoid mediocrity by inspiring others to use both hemispheres of the mind. View all my posts
