Found January 22, 2013 on The Cardinal Nation blog:
Along with St. Louis Cardinals radio announcer John Rooney, I was honored to be one of the guests on KOLR-TV in Springfield, Missouri to discuss the legacy of Stan Musial. We were part of the 30-minute weekly sports show called “Ozarks Saturday/Sunday,” hosted by Nick Carboni. “The Man” holds a special place in Springfield history, as he played in the outfield there during his rapid ascension to the major leagues in the summer of 1941. Ironically, when the show aired in Springfield Sunday night, I was among the many enjoying Rooney as he expertly emceed the 55th annual Baseball Writers’ Award Dinner in St. Louis. For those interested, KMOX Radio has posted selected highlights of the evening’s proceedings. Here is the audio of my spot, courtesy of Carboni and KOLR-TV. Follow me on Twitter.

Production Business

I honestly had every intention on this being about the baseball writers not electing anyone for the hall of fame this year, and not really thinking it was that big a deal. And then Lance decided to talk to Oprah. With that, then the game plan changed to make this about Lance, and Barry, and Roger, and PEDs, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
