WISE Sports Radio MLB hit: Jan. 8, 2020

Major League Baseball had an exciting postseason with the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros going to seven games in the World Series. The offseason created some much-needed sizzle with top free agents like Gerrit Cole, Stephen Strasburg, and Anthony Rendon signing big contracts before Christmas, rather than dragging the process out until February or March.

But as Pat Ryan and I talked about Wednesday on WISE Sports Radio, the biggest baseball offseason story will probably be what MLB does to the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox for their elaborate sign-stealing schemes involving cameras and dugout signals. The Astros won the World Series in 2017, the Red Sox in 2018, and both teams had Alex Cora on their coaching staffs.

Also, during our conversation about trade rumors, I misspoke — badly — about Nolan Arenado’s contract. He’s due to be paid $260 million over the next seven years — not $160 million, which led Pat to call Arenado a bargain. No, not exactly.

Thanks to WISE Sports Radio for allowing me to post this on my site, along with Mars Hill University (which sponsors the stream), host Pat Ryan, and Vistanet for sponsoring my MLB segment.
