Recently, ESPN radio decided to drop the Baseball Today Podcast featuring Eric Carabell, Mark Simon and Keith Law. It was amusing, interesting, unlikely, SABR-slanted and more than anything, very funny. The self-proclaimed dilettantes hosting the show were intelligent and their chemistry excellent.
Although replaced by another baseball podcast, featuring the terrific Buster Olney of ESPN television lore, the Baseball Today Podcast is sorely missed.
Listeners so absorbed in baseball knowledge already know virtually all presented by the new one (after all, who but the most ardent fan listens to a baseball podcast in the first place?) and looked forward to Karabell's unabashed love for all things Philly (especially Delmon Young), Law's snarkiness ("How about THAT, huh?" or, "Anytime someone accuses us of bias--a kitten dies") and Mark Simon's Ridiculous Question of the Day (who but the likes of us create songs of his beautiful voice and submit them for broadcast?).
ESPN, PLEASE BRING BACK THE BASEBALL TODAY PODCAST! There's room on the web for both!
We, the undersigned self-professed baseball stat geeks (and Pod Vader, we hope) ask that ESPN reinstate the Baseball Today Podcast featuring Eric Karabell, Keith Law and Mark Simon.
You had us at hello by just doing ANYTHING baseball, and left us at the altar.
ESPN, PLEASE BRING BACK THE BASEBALL TODAY PODCAST!
There's room on the web for both!
