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.
The NFL offseason is charging toward the annual player selection meeting (also known as the NFL Draft). But until then, Deshaun Watson’s sexual misconduct allegations will continue to be a topic.
On this week’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, we discuss what a Texas judge says Watson must do next. The Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints make an intriguing trade of draft picks. The Buffalo Bills extend their relationship with wide receiver Stefon Diggs. And some baseball talk involving the Atlanta Braves gets snuck in there at the end.
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.
And we’re back! With Pat Ryan on vacation, we didn’t have a WISE Sports Radio baseball segment. Fortunately, we can still talk about the Atlanta Braves winning the World Series and whether or not they have a chance at repeating.
Additionally, we talk about what the Los Angeles Dodgers need to do this offseason, San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey (a sure Hall of Famer) retiring, and Major League Baseball’s looming work stoppage.
The World Series begins this week with the Houston Astros and Atlanta Braves playing for Major League Baseball’s championship. For our weekly WISE Sports Radio segment, we preview the series which has some definite local interest with the Braves involved. What does each team need to do to win this series?
We also discuss whether or not Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts should worry about his job status and the St. Louis Cardinals naming Oliver Marmol as their new skipper. And we mix in some football talk at the end with rumors that the Carolina Panthers want to trade for Deshaun Watson.
