WISE Sports Radio baseball talk: Old Man La Russa, those amazing Rays and surprising Giants

Two months into the 2021 Major League Baseball season, one of the big surprises is the San Francisco Giants. Can they maintain their success through the rest of the year?

On WISE Sports Radio with Pat Ryan and Chris Smith, we also discussed Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa living up (down?) to the expectation of him being an out-of-touch curmudgeon, familiar faces on the USA Baseball roster, and the Tampa Bay Rays continuing to defy expectations despite a much lower payroll than the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox.

I should’ve caught myself on the air, but apologies to the listeners — and to Chris Smith — for mispronouncing Matthew Liberatore’s name during the segment. Chris had it right; it’s “lib-er-uh-toar,” not “lib-ruh-toar-eh,” as I kept saying. I’ll do better the next time!

You can listen to The WISE Guys from 3 to 6 p.m. ET streaming on wisesportsradio.com (courtesy of Mars Hill University) or the TuneIn app. Locally in the Asheville area, dial up 1310 or 970 AM and 102.9 FM. And thanks to Happy Hill Restaurant for sponsoring the MLB segment.
