A little bit of catch-up for this week’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, but these topics are still buzzing.
Should Major League Baseball be concerned about four no-hitters (five, unofficially) being thrown nearly six weeks into the 2021 season? Did Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa confirm the worst fears about his return to the dugout? And should the Los Angeles Angels have handled Albert Pujols’ release more respectfully?
After a two-week break from posting radio clips here (due to a combination of writing workload, general August malaise, and giving myself a breather), we are back!
On WISE Sports Radio‘s baseball segment, Pat Ryan and I discussed the formidable Chicago White Sox and what made me circle them as a playoff team before the season. Then we highlighted the most surprising and most disappointing teams of the MLB season thus far:
The 2020 Major League Baseball season is set to begin in three days and one team doesn’t know where it will play its home games this year. Seriously.
On this week’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, we discuss the Toronto Blue Jays not being allowed to play in Canada because of COVID-19 travel concerns, Yasiel Puig no longer playing for the Atlanta Braves, and storylines to watch for the 2020 season.
Is this really my last radio hit for 2019? I wish I’d been more aware of that while recording, though I did make sure to wish Pat Ryan and the WISE Guys crew a Happy New Year.
Catching up on some baseball news after Christmas week, Pat and I cover former Asheville Tourists star Corey Dickerson signing with the Miami Marlins, and the Toronto Blue Jays and Chicago White Sox taking big steps toward building playoff contenders for 2020. Oh, and some Star Wars!
Parents, raise your kids to play baseball — and play it well. There’s a whole lot of money being thrown around out there. The New York Yankees are trying to avoid paying Jacoby Ellsbury the $27 million they owe him for 2020, while the Seattle Mariners just agreed to pay $24 million to a 23-year-old prospect who hasn’t yet played above the Double-A minor league level.
Pat Ryan and I discuss that and more on Monday’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, including the Chicago White Sox making a push toward contending next season and the Atlanta Braves’ wasting no time in making additions for 2020.
