Baseball’s last stand for a 2020 season will probably happen this week. Team owners have submitted a plan to players, and now the question is whether or not the players will accept it.
On Monday’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, we ask the question we’ve asked all along: Is playing baseball possible while keeping everyone involved safe? Even if this is the best plan presented, is it really feasible?
Football! The NFL keeps chugging along until any kind of COVID-19 regulations stop them from doing so. Thursday night, the league will announce its 2020 regular season schedule.
In the meantime, for Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I talked about Brett Favre’s shady $1 million payday, Jadeveon Clowney still looking for a team, and the NFL’s first phase in reopening team facilities. Oh, and we start with some baseball talk on whether or not MLB players will approve the rumored plan for playing its 2020 season.
Is Major League Baseball moving ahead with its plan to play the 2020 season with 30 teams divided into three divisions based on geography? Maybe, but nothing’s official.
On Wednesday’s WISE Sports Radio MLB segment, Pat Ryan and I discuss that along with the story of Baltimore Orioles first baseman Trey Mancini, whose current plight is something to which Pat can relate closely.
Baseball fans will get some live stuff to watch this week, courtesy of ESPN. But you’ll have to get up or stay up really late to watch it, since the baseball is being played in South Korea. KBO! Choose your team! We’re leaning toward the Kia Tigers here at Casselbloggy HQ.
On Monday’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, we wondered if the Korean Baseball Organization would fill the hunger of sports fans. And we also talk some football, noting the passing of legendary Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Colts coach Don Shula.
The NFL keeps plugging along like it might be the only professional sport played this year. (Though Major League Baseball might get there.) Coming out of last week’s NFL Draft, there are plenty of player moves making news.
On Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I discuss the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback situations after they used high draft selections on new QBs. And we look at where Andy Dalton might land after being released by the Cincinnati Bengals.
Any discussions about money usually turn ugly and that’s what we could see in Major League Baseball between the players and owners if baseball isn’t played this season — or if it’s played, but without fans in attendance.
On Monday’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, Pat Ryan and I discuss what labor and management are arguing over, the Taiwanese league playing games, and a lawsuit by one of MLB’s worst umpires.
Up until Thursday’s NFL Draft, the big story in pro football this week is the reunion of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. (And Gronk came out of retirement!) How much fun will they have now that they’re no longer playing for grumpy Bill Belichick?
But the Draft is the NFL’s main attraction, maybe one of the last “real” sporting events we’ll have until the fall. (That is, if football is even played this coming season.) Will the Dolphins be able to trade up to No. 1 and get LSU quarterback Joe Burrow? Who will the Carolina Panthers take at No. 7? Will the Patriots get their Tom Brady replacement?
