One week after the NFL Draft, we look at who selected the best talent, including the Carolina Panthers and Detroit Lions during our WISE Sports Radio football spot.
Pat Ryan, Chris Smith, and I also discuss recent comments by Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill about seeking therapy and mentoring younger players competing for his position. Also, should DeAndre Hopkins be believed when he says he’s “shocked” over failing a PED test?
After a one-week break to focus on my new job, I’m back on WISE Sports Radio for some baseball talk (with a little bit of football mixed in).
Baseball team owners and players are back at the negotiating table. Will this end Major League Baseball’s lockout in time for Spring Training? Robot umpires — or an automated strike zone — will be used this coming season in Triple-A. Will we see this in MLB? And as a Detroit Lions fan, is it bittersweet to see Matthew Stafford one game away from the Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams?
Despite Major League Baseball being in a lockout, there’s just enough news for our regular WISE Sports Radio segment. That includes an update on the lockout itself, along with Buck Showalter returning to New York to manage the Mets and longtime executive Roland Hemond passing away.
Well, maybe there’s not enough baseball news for a full segment since we also talk about the Detroit Lions winning their second game of the season and Spider-Man: No Way Home, which will probably dominate the box office for weeks to come.
Yep, it was a good football weekend here at Casselbloggy HQ. Michigan won the Big Ten championship and a spot in the College Football Playoff, matched up against Georgia. And the Detroit Lions won their first game of the 2021 season. So that led off our WISE Sports Radio segment.
That’s probably fortunate because there’s not much baseball news to discuss with team owners locking out the players after Major League Baseball’s collective bargaining agreement expired, other than some good news from the Baseball Hall of Fame. (Pardon the audio briefly dropping out at the 6:45 mark.)
Baseball is never more exciting than during the postseason and the divisional playoffs haven’t disappointed thus far. On our WISE Sports Radio segment, we discuss an unusual play in Game 3 of the Rays-Red Sox series, the Braves taking control over the Brewers, and the Dodgers in a good position to defeat the Giants.
