Boxcast Episode 5.1: Live Boxcast or Die Hard

A very special "Live from New York" (it's Saturday night! (it actually was Saturday night (well, Saturday afternoon))) episode of the Boxcast this week featuring Da Box's Big Apple correspondent Alex Obal. Given the circumstances, Alex and I decided to chat about New York fandom and how it differs from being a fan in Toronto. In part 2 we took a cue from Matthew Elmsley and gave our predictions for who will get the playing time at left field and who will get the starts in 2012. Listen here.

The discussion was fruitful and free-flowing, so I'm going to save part 3 (NL East Preview) for next Monday so as not to burden listeners with a huge commitment. Also, we plan on going to a weekly schedule once the season starts so this is a good transition to that. Look for the Boxcast every Monday from now on!

Update: We're in the iTunes Store!

Part 1 is a discussion of New York fandom. Skip to 25:00 for Jays talk about left field and starting pitching. The discussion runs about 45 minutes in total.

Please post any technical problems in the comments. I've been in touch with iTunes people (specifically a guy named "Prince"...) and am optimistic we'll FINALLY get this thing into the iTunes Store sooner rather than later.

As always, feedback is welcome and appreciated.
