We’re thrilled to bring back a podcast to RAB. Because of some technical issues, we’re relaunching as the River Avenue Blues Podcast. Instead of a strict weekly show, we’ll shoot for a new podcast at the beginning of each series, so we can talk about the Yankees’ upcoming opponents. Clearly we blew that deadline this time, but we now have something to shoot for.
Mike and I will continue behind the mic, although Mike is currently on the DL. We’ll reevaluate him before Thursday’s (or Friday’s) podcast. But we have a great guest this week: ESPN’s Buster Olney.
Buster will serve as in-game reporter on Sunday Night Baseball (Angels at Yankees) alongside Dan Shulman and John Kruk at 8pm ET. Baseball Tonight: Sunday Night Countdown begins at 7pm with Karl Ravech and Hall of Famer Barry Larkin.
We talk about:
- Obligatory conversation about the pine tar incident
- Brian Cashman‘s job security
- The next MLB commissioner
- How the Angels overhauled their pitching staff without splurging on free agents
- How the first few weeks have changed thoughts and predictions about the AL East
It was a great conversation, and thanks again to Buster for coming on the show for our relaunch.

Since we wanted to post this before tonight, we have limited listening options right now. Here’s the link:
In most browsers you can just click on that and it will play in-browser. You can also right click to download it. As soon as we get a few technical matters in order we’ll have it up in iTunes and all other podcast providers. (FWIW, I love BeyondPod on my Android.)
One final note: I am aware of some audio and production issues in this episode. This is something we’re going to work on for future episodes. We have the hardware and the software, so we’ll get it right before long.
