My Interview With Hot Stove TV

On my way up to Jupiter, FL on Wednesday to catch the Cardinals vs. Nationals game, I did a phone interview with Tom Reese and Paul Rubillo of, a fairly new website that has done a great job of capturing the attention of baseball fans across the world with the duo’s interesting articles and interviews.  I was on their Hot Stove TV segment, where you can see Tom’s and Paul’s faces, but only a fuzzy image of my own face.  I guess it will have to do.  Anyway, the guys at Hot Stove have given me permission to embed the interview on this site, which you may listen to on the player below.  While I did not end up getting to watch Pete Parise pitch (he was not put into the game that day), he did earn his second save of Spring Training yesterday against the Florida Marlins.  He is definitely taking advantage of his time with the big league squad.  Anyway, enjoy the interview with the guys from Hot Stove.
