      Best idea EVER.

  • jake s

    9 AM on a Saturday? Whyyyyyyyy

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike Axisa

      I honestly had no idea it started that early. For some reason I had 1pm in my head…

  • Mister Delaware

    Seems like a really cool idea but, and I ask this with zero snark, will you have your computers there? Any time I debate/discuss specifics about any player, I like to have the stats open to counter or confirm the perception bias that got me talking in the first place. I imagine being ‘name’ commentators like you guys are, you’d be even more wary of over or understating a case because of a bad assumption.

      I have no idea, but it would be nice to at least have one.

  • rbizzler

    Any chance that the video of this panel will makes it way to the web?

    Are you guys going to take shots about #6 org?

    • pat

      I definitely missed out on the whole #6org thing, Could you be a pal and fill me in real quick?

      • Carlosologist

        Dave Cameron did his preseason Organizational Rankings and ranked the Mariners the sixth best organization in baseball. When the Mariners started to suck, everybody got on him about, thus the birth of #6org.

        • pat

          Thank you.

      • Carcillo

        Before the season when Fangraphs did their organizational rankings, Dave Cameron (noted Mariners fan) ranked Seattle as the 6th best organization in baseball.

        To support that ranking, they’re 35-54 this season.

        • pat

          Gracias.

        I could be missing the nuances, but I believe Dave Cameron of USS Mariner fame said that the M’s were the #6 org in baseball.

          Domo arigato, Mr. Imbrogno
