It’s the final week of the 2022 Major League Baseball regular season and the Atlanta Braves all but clinched the National League East division, overtaking the New York Mets with a three-game sweep at Truist Park over the weekend.
On WISE Sports Radio, we discuss the Braves’ chances at repeating as World Series champions, Aaron Judge’s continuing pursuit of 62 home runs with four games remaining, Shohei Ohtani’s big payday, and local (Sylva, North Carolina) product Cal Raleigh clinching a playoff spot for the Seattle Mariners with a home run Friday night.
As Major League Baseball nears the end of the regular season, one slugger reached a milestone while another is still in pursuit. For this week’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, we covered Albert Pujols hitting his 700th career home run and Aaron Judge chasing his 61st of the season.
Among our other topics: Will Tony La Russa return to manage the Chicago White Sox next season? Don Mattingly will not return to the Miami Marlins. And what can MLB do to boost offense in the sport?
With changes to the fall schedule, it’s been a while since we’ve talked football on WISE Sports Radio. But we popped on this week to discuss Matt Rhule’s job security with the Carolina Panthers and whether or not team owner David Tepper is being too patient with his head coach.
Looking around the NFL, we also covered Justin Herbert’s rib injury and his status for Week 3, Kenny Golladay unhappy with his playing time in New York, Bruce Arians getting a warning from the league, the Buffalo Bills-Miami Dolphins match-up, and how the San Francisco 49ers will perform with Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback.
Two of the most thrilling stories as the 2022 Major League Baseball regular season nears its end are the National League East race between the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets and Aaron Judge’s pursuit of 61 home runs, a cherished piece of New York Yankees history.
On our WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, we discuss a key injury for the Braves and Judge’s likelihood of surpassing what many see as the “real” (unaided by PEDs) single-season home run record. Other topics include the Los Angeles Dodgers’ postseason chances, pitcher David Price likely retiring, and a quick football note about the Detroit Lions.
After a week off for Labor Day and schedule switcheroos, we’re back for a baseball segment on Asheville’s WISE Sports Radio. And we’re just in time to discuss new rules changes in baseball, including a (much-needed) pitch clock, getting rid of the defensive shift, and larger bases on the field.
Our conversation also includes asking whether the Atlanta Braves peaked too early in their surge up the National League East standings, the New York Yankees’ recent struggles, the downward turn of the San Francisco Giants, and the future of Tony La Russa as Chicago White Sox manager.
