really solid line-ups for the FAN lately.

The Jason Whitlock interview from a few days ago was top notch. He describes the collegiate athletics system as “rotten to the core” and makes some really compelling arguments that it has a morally backwards incentive structure. Recommended listening.

Offtopic – but I’ve debated with some of you guys a few times about why there is a perception that AA has done a great job with improving the Jays as whole, despite a regression in W-L on the MLB team from 2010-2011.

This came out today, so thought as pass it on:

If you’re not a hardcore fan, prospect talk is probably pretty boring. But stuff like this is why people are excited by what AA is doing, and why they feel positive about the upcoming seasons. Two years ago this team had an older, overpaid core with a barren system.

All that said – lets see what AA can do with the MLB squad to put together a competitive team in 2012.

Agree, PTS has been on an excellent run of late. As Mike (In Boston) stated about the Jason Whitlock interview, it was excellent listening. One other thing he said was that the two sides are inherently in conflict with each other, one as a profit centre, and one as one devoted to the educational component. Decisions are often made for the financial betterment of the university but not for the best welfare of the student body.

Stephen, we missed you!

Wow… is it just me or was Bob’s interview w/ JP Arencibia surprisingly combative? (on both sides) Arencibia seemed extremely defensive, which is surprising (and refreshing) for an athlete giving an interview. Usually they play humble and talk about needing to grow and stuff…

just caught that interview Ami — it was indeed a little odd. I think JP was a little thrown by Bob’s “how much will this team miss Molina?” line of questioning. It was a little sad that JPA had to explain to Bob that AA gets a draft pick for letting him walk. After that Bob became a little more friendly, and even tried to refer to JP as “pal” at the end of the interview.

the Ameche interview, on the other hand, was great. How often do you get ex-athletes drawing analogies between the organizational responses to the Penn State sex abuse scandal and the BP oil spill? Brunt was the perfect co-host for this interview — very cerebral questions and answers. Good work all around, and a different angle on a story that has been covered pretty extensively.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
