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.
