Finally! After two weeks and countless problems with technology (even a power outage!) the Tarp Talk gang is back with Episode 11 (or 11A, but in reality 13 … hence the problems?). Of course we have to talk about Scott Sizemore and the possible replacements and the storylines we are following during Spring Training. This week we are joined by Dan Szymborski of Baseball Think Factory ( @DSzymborski ). Dan comes on and talks about the ZiPS projections for the Athletics this season. Who he sees as a possible over/under achievers. He also lends his opinion on what that thing is in Miami. After that we do the DTOTW and say our goodbyes.
Welcome to the first episode, Opening Day for us if you will, of the Tarp Talk Podcast. This week we introduce ourselves and the podcast, talk about David DeJesus‘ signing with Chicago and the A’s OF situation. We also will talk Gio Gonzalez and Josh Willingham – who is gone first? – and Jai Miller and his strikeout rate and potential place on the 2012 Oakland A’s roster.
