CLIPS

We introduce Kurkjian the way he introduces many of his stories (HT: Mike). And we talk some Gnats. How bad are they?http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_gnats.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_gnats.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_gnats.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_gnats.mp3shapeimage_7_link_0shapeimage_7_link_1shapeimage_7_link_2

Buy the new On the DL merchandise for 2009! While supplies last (which means forever).

We talk about his book, and I ask who is Kurkjian’s favorite player of all time.http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_ripken.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_ripken.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_ripken.mp3shapeimage_10_link_0shapeimage_10_link_1
We run the gamut of the A-Rod situation. Why lie if he’s so concerned about his image? Who is advising this guy?!?!http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_arod.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_arod.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_arod.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_arod.mp3shapeimage_11_link_0shapeimage_11_link_1shapeimage_11_link_2
We talk about Roy Oswalt’s quotes re: Tejada and A-Rod. And get into the ‘art’ of the interview. How can you get what you need from people unwilling to give it?http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_interviews.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_interviews.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_interviews.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_interviews.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_interviews.mp3shapeimage_12_link_0shapeimage_12_link_1shapeimage_12_link_2shapeimage_12_link_3
What is the legacy of Bud Selig? And what, now, do we think of Pete Rose? And does Kurkjian feel duped by the players?http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_selig.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_selig.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_selig.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_selig.mp3shapeimage_13_link_0shapeimage_13_link_1shapeimage_13_link_2
People want these 103 names to just come out. But what about good journalism? Isn’t it someone’s job to FIND the names?http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_reporting.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_reporting.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_reporting.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_reporting.mp3shapeimage_14_link_0shapeimage_14_link_1shapeimage_14_link_2
We talk Hall of Fame. How in the world has there never been a unanimous selection?http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_hof.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_hof.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_hof.mp3shapeimage_15_link_0shapeimage_15_link_1
Newspapers are dying. But news isn’t. Are we making too much of the end of the printed word? This happened to music too, right? http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_newspapers.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_newspapers.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_newspapers.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_newspapers.mp3shapeimage_16_link_0shapeimage_16_link_1shapeimage_16_link_2
As a respected journalist, doesn’t Kurkjian want to punch Mike and Mike in the face?http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_mikeandmike.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_mikeandmike.mp3http://onthedlpodcast.com/clips/dlpodcast_kurkjian_mikeandmike.mp3shapeimage_17_link_0shapeimage_17_link_1
