Our WISE Sports Radio segments will go on a two-week hiatus while Pat Ryan takes a vacation. Unfortunately, that means we won’t be talking baseball leading up to and after the Major League Baseball trade deadline. But hey, a summer break is welcome. The show returns Aug. 8.
Going into that break, we discuss how Adam Duvall’s season-ending injury could affect the Atlanta Braves, David Ortiz’s enormous popularity, Buck O’Neil finally getting into the Baseball Hall of Fame, Shohei Ohtani’s trade value, the collapse of the Boston Red Sox, and two St. Louis Cardinals stars whose refusal to be vaccinated could be costly.
Has adding the designated hitter to the National League boosted offense in Major League Baseball? Well…
On WISE Sports Radio, we discuss fewer runs and less hitting in MLB, Madison Bumgarner’s confrontation with an umpire, teams dealing with COVID outbreaks again, and Robinson Cano being released by the New York Mets.
The Urban Meyer era is over in Jacksonville, and before the embattled coach could even finish a full NFL season. What was the final straw with Jags team owner Shad Khan and where does Meyer go from here?
On our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, we also discuss Washington Football Team owner Daniel Snyder reportedly interfering with the league’s investigation into sexual misconduct allegations, COVID-19 hitting several teams hard, and Germany courting the NFL.
You can stream The WISE Guys from 3 to 6 p.m. ET on wisesportsradio.com or the TuneIn app. Locally in the Asheville area, you can listen on 1310 or 970 AM and 102.9 FM.
May you find someone who misses you the way Aaron Rodgers missed Randall Cobb. This week, the Green Bay Packers tried to make their quarterback happy by bringing back one of his favorite receivers and veteran leaders.
We discussed that and more on this week’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment, including Lamar Jackson testing positive for COVID-19 (again), Sean Payton’s annoyance with Michael Thomas, Cole Beasley’s continued vaccine defiance, and Kelvin Benjamin’s bad break-up with the New York Giants.
The NFL does not want any games to be postponed or jeopardized due to COVID-19 this season and is leaning hard on players and coaches to get vaccinated because of it.
On our WISE Sports Radio football segment, Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I talk about that, along with Cole Beasley’s vaccine skepticism, Fred Warner’s big contract with the San Francisco 49ers, and Jerry Jones perhaps seeing the end with his Dallas Cowboys.
