Despite Major League Baseball currently being in a lockout, we had some stuff to talk about for our WISE Sports Radio baseball segment. (We had to sneak a little Detroit Lions talk in there since Pat Ryan likes to tease me about my terrible football team.)
Freddie Freeman might be sore at the Atlanta Braves for not making him a contract offer before the lockout. Yasiel Puig is playing baseball in Korea and has been dealing with serious problems off the field in recent years Will Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens have a better chance at the Hall of Fame with the Modern Era Committee? Someone who’s definitely going to the Hall of Fame: ESPN’s Tim Kurkjian.
I mentioned a couple of articles during the segment that I’ll link to here:
- The Washington Post report on Yasiel Puig regarding his sexual assault allegations.
- ESPN.com’s piece on Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens without PEDs.
Also, since we talked about Tim Kurkjian, I had to include the segments from The Tony Kornheiser Show when he talked about his love for avocadoes, which have been a running joke on the program for years.
