The hoopsters at Ball Don't Lie practically invented the medium. Shutdown Corner has been at it awhile. Devil Ball Golf, From The Marbles and Puck Daddy have all recently started exploring the realms of podcasting.
With all that audio going on across the Yahoo! Sports Blogosphere, it made us ask one simple question:
Why should Big League Stew miss out on all the fun?
Welcome, then, to the first-ever Big League Stewcast, which we hope to turn into a weekly must-listen for you Stewies at home, in the office, in your car, aboard your treadmill or on your way to the ballpark.
In this edition of Stewcast, we ask Granderson about that idea, what it's like to be part of Team USA in the WBC, the unwritten rules of RBI Baseball and his favorite pizza place in his hometown of Chicago.
Yeah, you'll notice pretty quickly that our podcasting skills are a little rough around the edges — what's a recording level? — but Granderson thankfully did much better in our debut than we did and makes it entirely worth your time. We can't thank him enough.
Take a listen below:
