We're so late to jump on the podcast bandwagon that it isn't even a bandwagon anymore. We're trendsetters!

The inaugural episode of the "Boxcast", Batter's Box's official podcast (as opposed to all those imitations running wild out there) features Box scribes Anders Whist, Thomas Ayers and myself talking Jays, ZiPS, and Prince Fielder. More details inside.

In part 1 we discuss the ZiPS projections recently posted at Baseball Think Factory and guess who might exceed or fail to meet their projections. In Part 2 (at the 30 minute mark) we look more closely at the left field situation and discuss Travis Snider and Eric Thames. In part 3 (41:30) we speculate on where Prince Fielder may end up. The whole thing runs just under an hour.

We'll figure out the whole "subscribing on iTunes" thing for Episode 2. In the meantime, listen to the Boxcast here. You can also download it by clicking on the arrow on the far right of the embedded Quicktime player and selecting "Save as Quicktime movie."

Stay tuned for Episode 2 coming in a couple weeks! Episode 2 will feature the debut of the Boxcast's own original theme music, unfortunately ending the current one-episode streak of copyright infringement. If you're listening, Beyoncé, our sincerest apologies, it's just the one time, we promise!

We'd love to hear from you guys. Feedback is welcome and greatly appreciated. Hope you enjoy!
