WISE Sports Radio MLB update: Sept. 21, 2020

The past weekend brought bad news for a former Detroit Tigers pitcher and a now-former Tigers manager. Justin Verlander requiring reconstructive surgery on his right elbow and Ron Gardenhire suddenly retiring due to health concerns were two of the topics we covered on WISE Sports Radio‘s baseball segment.

We also discussed the San Diego Padres, whom I think I’ve written more about than any other team this season in my role contributing to SI.com’s Dodgers site.

WISE Sports Radio MLB segment: April 6, 2020

Shortly before I called into WISE Sports Radio for my regular baseball segment with Pat Ryan, news of Al Kaline’s death was being widely reported. I have far more to say on the Detroit Tigers legend and Hall of Famer than I could articulate on show. But I’m glad I did have an opportunity to express my feelings about Kaline.

We also discussed the MLB players union making sure that established major leaguers who signed minor-league contracts in spring training, hoping to catch on with a roster, were being paid during baseball’s shutdown.

The Podcass 015: Lions suffer larceny at Lambeau

Glad The Podcass is on a Tuesday-Friday schedule, so we could have some near-instant response to the Detroit Lions’ 23-22 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football. What a debacle, with the referees making several terrible calls that cost the Lions a chance to win at Lambeau Field and move near the top of the NFC standings.

We break down and complain about those terrible calls, two in particular against Detroit’s Trey Flowers (0:32). Then, our WISE Sports Radio baseball segment covers big wins by the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals in the MLB playoffs over the weekend (16:21). Did you miss those amid all the football action?

WISE Sports Radio MLB spot: Oct. 14, 2019

Lots of baseball action to cover from the weekend on Monday’s WISE Sports Radio segment.

We cover the Houston Astros’ big win in Game 2 of the ALCS over the New York Yankees and where that series should go from here, then look at the NLCS and the Washington Nationals’ formidable series lead over the St. Louis Cardinals. And there’s the Tyler Skaggs story, which gets uglier by the day.

Oh, and I lament the 2013 Detroit Tigers, which had Max Scherzer and Anibal Sanchez in their rotation.
