Here’s another radio spot that made it to the interwebs. This is mostly Awards Watch talk with Dallas-based Newy Scruggs of NBC Sports Radio, but at the end we get into my recent piece on Mike Scioscia and managerial Hall of Fame candidacies. Enjoy!

Here are some clips from my appearance on MLB Now on Monday with Dan O’Dowd, Joel Sherman, and host Scott Braun.
On George Springer’s two-year contract with the Astros, buying out two of his three arbitration years:
On the teams in the middle that should be aggressive right now in pursuit of a possible playoff berth (I focus on the Twins):
On Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto’s request for a trade:
On the top 10 pitchers right now, who’s number one, and where Stephen Strasburg fits on the list:
As for the top seven pitchers I mention in that clip, here’s my list, with the caveat that this was a hastily assembled list assembled while researching other topics in the small window between our production meeting and air time. Given more time, I might return a slightly different result:
1. Max Scherzer
2. Corey Kluber
3. Clayton Kershaw
4. Chris Sale
5. Justin Verlander
6. Madison Bumgarner
7. Zack Greinke
I wound up making seven appearances on MLB Network’s “Clubhouse Confidential” this past offseason, as well as one on Al Jazeera America’s “Inside Story” with host Ray Suarez and fellow panelists Rob Neyer and Jonah Keri discussing performance-enhancing drugs and the Hall of Fame. However, MLB.com stopped posting Clubhouse Confidential segments after November, so I never got to properly update this post. I finally have another TV appearance to share, however. I made my debut on the Brian Kenny-hosted “MLB Now” on the MLB Network this past Wednesday, with fellow panelists Eric Byrnes and Joel Sherman, and MLB.com posted one of our segments discussing the Final Vote for the All-Star Game. Incidentally, Anthony Rizzo pulled ahead in the voting later Wednesday evening and eventually won the vote. I can’t take credit for that, but I will anyway.
