The Felix Hernandez Debate

Is Felix Hernandez going to be FELIX HERNANDEZ in 2017? Joseph and Tyler have differing opinions on the matter in Episode 8 of the newly named The Eleventh Inning Podcast. After diving into the Felix Hernandez dilemma, two head-to-head comparisons take place: Drew Smyly vs. James Paxton and Robinson Cano vs. Jean Segura.

Also, Professor Joseph has his knowledge put to the test with some Mariners trivia. The game in question for Professor Joseph is from August 4, 2005.

JDFC Episode 7: For the Culture

You all have been introduced to Professor Joseph, but this episode introduces you to journalist Joseph. What did he see when he was at FanFest? Did he get to ask the namesake of our podcast a question?

How important is a culture change to a winning ball club? From the linked Seattle Times article by Ryan Divish:

“It didn’t matter if it was general manager Jerry Dipoto, manager Scott Servais or director of player development Andy McKay, or even holdovers such as assistant general manager Jeff Kingston and director of scouting Tom Allison. They share a belief that better and more consistent communication will lead to a culture change within the organization and success on the field.”

Joseph Victor and I discuss this topic after last week’s Mariners media day and FanFest. There is also a tribute to departed Mariner Dae-Ho Lee, which fans of Joseph’s musical talent will certainly not want to miss.

 

Also, here is the Jean Segura article that I was thinking of around the 9-minute-mark of the podcast: http://www.fanragsports.com/mlb/why-jean-segura-wont-regress-in-seattle/

JDFC Episode 3: Do we like the Jean Segura trade?

Joseph and I discuss the Jean Segura-Taijuan Walker (plus some more interesting players) trade that happened on the eve of Thanksgiving, before saying goodbye to the M’s 2014 first round draft pick, Alex Jackson, who our beloved Jerry D also traded. Slow down Jerry!!

Joseph also references Jason Marquis and gets extra spicy in the second half of the episode? Was I able to pair with Joseph’s spiciness? The only way to find out is to listen and share with other interested friends, family, pets and ghosts of Christmas past.
