Episode 8 – I Was DH’d For In High School

 

Tarp Talk is back for Episode 8! This week we are joined by Jeff Sullivan of Lookout Landing fame. Jeff comes on and talks to us about furry animals in his hands, how he felt about the Jesus Montero for Michael Pineda trade, what the Mariners should do with Felix Hernandez, the upcoming season can be, just how bad the Astros are, and Ken Griffey Jr.’s napping schedule. If you wish to follow Jeff, and you really should, he can be found @LookoutLanding. After that the guys launch into the usual silly stuff with the Dumb Tweet of The Week and say their collective goodbyes.

Episode 7 – If Jamie Moyer Is Still Pitching In 2015…

The Tarp Talk gang is back with Episode 7. The Athletics had a busy week on the trade front, free agent signing front, and the avoiding arbitration front. The gang talks about the Guillermo Moscoso and Josh Outman for Seth Smith trade and why most of them don’t like it. We also touch on the Bartolo Colon signing and how it will affect the starting rotation. We talk about the one-year deals the A’s gave Brandon McCarthy and Joey Devine to avoid arbitration and the much talked about Yankees – Mariners trade. As always we finish with the Dumb Tweet of The Week and say goodbye.

Episode 4 – All I Want For Christmas Is Runs

The Tarp Talk gang is back for Episode 4. We originally were going to put together what we thought was going to be the best lineup for the A’s, but then realized that we all had the same thing. So instead we talked about trades. With Gio Gonzalez being the prized possession of most teams now that Yu Darvish is presumably off the table we talk about what we would like to get back for Gio. Seeing as the two big teams in the hunt for him are seemingly the Nationals and the Blue Jays, we keep our suggestions to those two teams. After that we talk about the possibility of a Andrew Bailey to the Red Sox trade and who we would like to get back in that trade as well. Before the break we do a very early pre-season prognostication as to what record we see the team finishing. We come back, as always, and finish with the Dumb Tweet of The Week, and David Wishinsky wins this week.

Our hosts @DavidWiers (self-explanatory), @cuppingmaster (Alan Torres), @tvprcretireplan (David Wishinsky), and @oakfaninva (David Spencer).
