Major League Baseball made a statement by suspending Trevor Bauer for two seasons (324 games) under its domestic violence and sexual misconduct policy. Our WISE Sports Radio baseball segment begins with discussing the punishment and whether Bauer has any chance at returning to MLB.
On the field — with more pleasant topics — we also cover Clayton Kershaw setting the Los Angeles Dodgers career strikeout mark and whether or not he’s the franchise’s greatest pitcher, five New York Mets combining for a no-hitter (in addition to the team having the best record in the National League), and the abysmal Cincinnati Reds.
First, grievances fuel motivation at the gym (01:29). From WISE Sports Radio, we cover the playoff collapses of the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers, and the Philadelphia Phillies firing manager Gabe Kapler. On the football side, we dig into the disastrous Washington Redskins and their dismissal of coach Jay Gruden, along with other NFL Week 6 storylines (07:33). And finally some TV talk on Fox’s Prodigal Son and ABC’s Emergence (31:32).
With Asheville’s WISE Sports Radio now streaming its programming online, people can now hear my weekly segments on The WISE Guys show. I appear three times per week with Pat Ryan on the air, twice for Major League Baseball news, and now once on NFL news and storylines.
The stream also gives me an opportunity to record the audio from those spots and post them online. I’ve gotten the green light from the station to share those segments with my friends, followers, and readers, which I’m really excited about.
Here is Thursday’s segment, in which we covered both baseball and football because of the two decisive National League Divisional Series Game 5s and the news of the Philadelphia Phillies firing manager Gabe Kapler. On the football side, Pat and I discussed the Washington Redskins firing head coach Jay Gruden, other NFL coaches whose jobs are in danger, and storylines to watch in Week 6.
