Pitchers Hit Eighth Podcast – Episode 5.0: “I once threw Scott Erickson for 220 pitches in a Diamond Mind game.”

by on July 14, 2011 · 0 comments

Dayn Perry (NotGraphs, Reggie Jackson: The Life and Thunderous Career of Baseball’s Mr. October) joins us to discuss the NL Central at the All-Star Break along with many other things, amongst them abusing poor, computerized Scott Erickson in a Diamond Mind game.

Josh took over the hosting honors (honors?) on this one, as I was enjoying some R&R away from the computer, but they managed to track me down via cell phone and we made the magic happen (read: recorded a show that took me forever to edit, because I was well into Belgian adult beverages, Dayn was eating a calzone, and Josh couldn’t get the opening or closing right).

Nevertheless, I think the final product is something well worth listening to, which is what we strive for.

We discussed the ENTIRE NL Central as well as some Cards that participated in the Futures Game and what we might expect from the hometown club moving forward in 2011.

Please give a listen, tell your friends, e-mail us at podcast@pitchershiteighth.com and keep reading.

Thanks again to Star Off Machine for providing our music for this episode, follow them on Twitter @STOFMA.


P.S.  If you listen beyond the closing music, there’s a great little bit from Dayn that really should’ve been the title of the show.  Alas, if only it fit.  Well, I guess it did in some format, right?  PH8 Outtakes?

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.
