After a week off while Pat Ryan was on vacation, during which we missed the 2022 World Series, our weekly WISE Sports Radio chat covers the Houston Astros winning the World Series!
How did the Astros take over the series after the Phillies took a two-games-to-one lead? Could Philadelphia make another run next season? Houston almost certainly will. And maybe they’ll be managed again by Dusty Baker, the oldest manager to win a World Series at 73 years old.
We’re back talking baseball on WISE Sports Radio after last week’s spot had to be canceled. And just as we know three of the four teams that will play for an appearance in the World Series.
In the National League, the Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres — both of whom finished way out of first place in their respective divisions — face each other for the pennant. In the American League, the Houston Astros await the winner of the Guardians-Yankees division series. How did the Phillies beat the Braves? How did the Padres defeat the Dodgers?
It’s the final week of the 2022 Major League Baseball regular season and the Atlanta Braves all but clinched the National League East division, overtaking the New York Mets with a three-game sweep at Truist Park over the weekend.
On WISE Sports Radio, we discuss the Braves’ chances at repeating as World Series champions, Aaron Judge’s continuing pursuit of 62 home runs with four games remaining, Shohei Ohtani’s big payday, and local (Sylva, North Carolina) product Cal Raleigh clinching a playoff spot for the Seattle Mariners with a home run Friday night.
The World Series begins this week with the Houston Astros and Atlanta Braves playing for Major League Baseball’s championship. For our weekly WISE Sports Radio segment, we preview the series which has some definite local interest with the Braves involved. What does each team need to do to win this series?
We also discuss whether or not Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts should worry about his job status and the St. Louis Cardinals naming Oliver Marmol as their new skipper. And we mix in some football talk at the end with rumors that the Carolina Panthers want to trade for Deshaun Watson.
Baseball’s postseason is now in the Championship Series round. Four teams remain! The winners go to the World Series. Both the American League and National League series were very entertaining over the weekend, providing close games and thrilling finishes. Our WISE Sports Radio baseball segment leads off with the Dodgers-Braves and Red Sox-Astros matchups
We also discuss Major League Baseball planning to provide housing for all of its minor-league players beginning next season, a long overdue move. And after the St. Louis Cardinals’ shocking firing of manager Mike Shildt on Thursday, we look at who might take over that job and Shildt being a possible candidate for the San Diego Padres’ opening.
