OK, the new Poscast is up ... our first installment with (I hope) semi-regular co-host Bill James.
Here is the Poscast on iTunes.
And here it is at Sports Illustrated.
A couple of things. One, we are hoping to make a quantum leap forward in sound quality with this coming week's Poscast. We now have a lot of sound equipment, and while I suspect we may have to take the stuff out of their boxes, I am told that this will make the sound next week much better. Like everything with the Poscast, it's a work in progress. The Poscast with Bill James this week was done under less-than-ideal circumstances -- in Augusta, with a less-than-stellar Internet connection -- so I hope that the great stuff Bill is saying will make up for any sound quality gaps.
Two, I can tell you that it is my hope to have two regular co-hosts -- regular the way Charo was a "regular" guest on The Love Boat. I'm hoping, for instance, that the next month will look like follows:
April 18: Special guest (and if I get who I'm trying to get, it will be INCREDIBLE*).
April 25: Poscast with Michael Schur.
May 2: Special guest (again, potentially incredible).
May 9: Poscast with Bill James
*At least for me.
I'm kind of hoping that each month will look something like that -- incredible guest, Michael Schur, incredible guest, Bill James and so on.
This week's Poscast I talk with Bill about college hoops, the meaning of bad starts, how well past performance predicts future and a bunch of other fun things. Bill also reiterates my own belief that we all think baseball is at its most perfect when you are 10 years old. Bill, as you might expect, puts it in better words.
