The New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies could be giving us another good baseball rivalry. On WISE Sports Radio, we discuss this past weekend’s series where tensions heated up between the two clubs.
Also, how is Phillies slugger Bryce Harper after taking a pitch to the face? How absurd is MLB’s three-batter rule for relief pitchers? And baseball’s amusing history of strange injuries has a new entry, thanks to Oakland A’s pitcher Jesus Luzardo.
It’s good to see Major League Baseball and its teams take sexual misconduct allegations seriously with its swift actions to remove Roberto Alomar from his advisory roles with the sport. But as I mentioned, Alomar was a favorite player of mine growing up as annual family summer trips to Toronto made me a fan of the Blue Jays. But being a great player doesn’t mean he or she is a great human being.
