Scan Post

The one thing that jumps out at me after the first series is that the in-game Channel 4 Padres broadcast is - for the most part - doing a great job. Last year was rough. Mark Neely being thrown in there as the guy to replace Matt Vasgersian was hard to take in. Having Matty was like having LT in 2004. Neely had no shot to fill those shoes. It was like Bubby Brister replacing Elway. This year, however, the sound of Dick Enberg’s voice is perfect for sipping a few beers and eating peanuts on my couch (my official beer for the 2010 season is Bud Light Golden Wheat because its colors are the same blue and orange as the 98 Padres. Cammy would agree).

And then there is the Post-Game show...

Let’s talk about this guy:
This image is why I won’t let myself fall in love with golf.

Bob Scanlan’s job is to analyze the results of the game you just watched from the perspective of a guy who played (he bounced around the league during the 90s). He likes to call his breakdown of a game his “Scanalysis”. Yeah, I’m pretty sure he is proud of it. After Wednesday’s 5-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks, he came on with Jenny Cavnar (who almost pulls off that Michelle Beadle thing, but doesn’t try hard enough) and did a standard Scanalysis of what happened. “This was a ballgame that really came down to a few pitches and that is how Major League Baseball is. Kevin Correia - for the most part - didn’t throw a bad baseball game, but he made three mistakes that cost him this ball game. That’s the way Major League Baseball goes.” Then he went on to talk about his website bobscanlan.com, claiming that if you send him an email, he will definitely read it.

Well, let’s see how it goes. This was sent to Bob after watching the Post Game show:

Dear Bob,

You totally get what baseball is all about. There is a right way and a wrong way to play the game and nothing gets by you. So hey, I have this blog with my friends thekeptfaith.blogspot.com. I think it is pretty cool, but I really wish I could evaluate it the way you evaluate the Padres. I wish I could Scanalize it, but you know there is only one Bob Scanlan. Oh well, it is what it is. I guess sometimes the success of a blog comes down to a few posts. That’s the way the Internet goes. Man, your teeth are really white. I wish mine could be that white. Anyways, keep up the good work.

Nick

45 minutes later he replied with:

Hey Nick,

Thanks for the kind words. I checked out your blog and it looks like you have plenty of content. I might know a little about baseball, but I don't know squat about websites, blogs, social networking, etc. I just started my site a few months ago and trying to get it exposure just like yours. My philosophy is that with so much crap out there, you just have to keep screaming what you believe until people start to listen. Keep sharing your inisghts, thoughts, and passionate beliefs, and you will be found.
Wish you all the best, and that your faith in the Pads is rewarded.

Thanks for your email, and for watching the show!

Ha! That's awesome. I really wish he would have responded about his teeth.

The post game is usually pretty lame...and Jenny Cavnar sucks (read: I want her job)...but Scanlan and Weisbarth seem like pretty much the nicest people ever.

Travis said...

HAHAHA!!! So think I just pee'd in my pants.

Q said...

Actually, he was pretty classy. he just glossed completely over your sarcasm and sort-of-insults adn answered you like a normal guy. Scan is classy

nick mccann said...

I agree. That was nice of him. Next time I will ask him some better questions.

This is a real email exchange I had with Scans last year: My email:

Big Scan,

Do you think it is appropriate that the Padres wear combat military uniforms?! Camo is used so you can kill your enemy before they kill you. Why do they have compare a fun game like baseball to war? People die in blood soaked camo. It's not a game.

Also, you mentioned the other day that "this is the United States, a free country" when talking about the perfect game chatter during the telecast. Which other country would have their pro sports teams wearing their country's military uniforms?

--
Scan's response:

I think you are missing the point. they wear them to HONOR the military, not mimic them. Also, it was my partner John Weisbarth who made the "Free Country" comment. He is right, and we all understand that freedom is thanks to those men and women who fought and in some cases died for that freedom. Those camo tops are not an insult to the military or a parody - they are a symbol of thanks and respect. The Padres organization is known for their on going recognition and honoring of the armed services. Sorry you don't see it that way.

Thanks for the email.
Scan

He certainly knows the talking points. But, he's obviously brainwashed. Also note, his torso never moves during the entire Scanalization process. It's just his hands and head on a swivel. I'm not saying he's a clone. But, well, he might be.

Weisbarth is a tool! I have proof! Oh and yes, Scan is a trained assassin.

I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's
pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web
will be a lot more useful than ever before.
