It takes a special team to lose a game despite allowing no hits by the opposition. That’s what the Cincinnati Reds did on Sunday, and they’re on pace to be especially bad among teams in the history of Major League Baseball.
On this week’s WISE Sports Radio baseball spot, we discuss that along with Max Scherzer having no use for ceremonial first pitches, Trevor Bauer fighting his two-season suspension, the Boston Red Sox playing far below expectations, and Brett Gardner only wanting to play for the New York Yankees.
For those who didn’t see it, here’s the clip of Max Scherzer not allowing the ceremonial first pitch to be thrown at Friday’s Mets game:
And this is probably too visual a gag for a radio segment, but I was kind of hoping we’d discuss a possum appearing in the Oakland Coliseum press box during Sunday’s game between the Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Angels.
That ballpark needs to be demolished, man.
