A Bat Flippin’ Good Time Podcast: Hamilton, Trout, Mets, Statcast, the Yips, and more


Tonight on A Bat Flippin’ Good Time Podcast, I was joined by Mike Hllywa and M.J. Lloyd. I thought we had a great little show here tonight, one of our better efforts; but then again I am the same guy who thought it was a good idea to bet my hard earned, real-life wages against Matt Harvey today when he faced off with C.C. Sabathia.

That said, we talked about a lot of great topics tonight:

  • Josh Hamilton traded to the Texas Rangers
  • The debt of MLB Statcast
  • Surprises in baseball: the New York Mets, the Kansas City Royals, Nelson Cruz, and others.
  • Our usual Mike Trout mention
  • The Royals want to fight everybody
  • Kris Bryant, Giancarlo Stanton chatter
  • Clint tells a story on the Yips
  • Media markets in baseball – where is great, and where is a pressure cooker?

And as always, there’s a lot of golden stuff in between. Like Hllywa’s one-liners. Or me getting his last name right finally after eight tries. Or M.J.’s goat. If you have an hour at lunch and you’re allowed to put your headphones on, eat your lunch, zone out and listen to some great baseball talk; you should enjoy this installment.
