WISE Sports Radio MLB update: June 15, 2020

The standoff between Major League Baseball team owners and players continues and may finally be nearing an end. But likely without a resolution as the players rejected the owners’ latest proposal and have essentially dared MLB to launch a 2020 season.

Yet as we discussed during Monday’s baseball segment on WISE Sports Radio, that really wouldn’t solve any of the disagreement between owners and players. Down the line, it will almost certainly cause more problems and could veer into legal territory.

WISE Sports Radio MLB segment: April 22, 2020

Major League Baseball finally got around to punishing the Boston Red Sox for their sign-stealing shenanigans during their World Series-winning 2018 season. But their penalties are nowhere near as harsh as what the Houston Astros suffered for their cheating scandal.

On Wednesday’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, I talk with Pat Ryan and Charlie Metcalf about that, COVID-19’s effects on the minor leagues, and reports of Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez making moves to buy the New York Mets. Oh, J-Lo and A-Rod owning a piece of a baseball team would be fun…

WISE Sports Radio MLB hit: Feb. 17, 2020

If the Astros and baseball commissioner Rob Manfred thought Houston’s sign-stealing scandal would go away once the team was penalized, neither side can be happy that the story is being kept alive by fans, media, and MLB players.

If Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred was hoping that the sport would move on after he penalized the Houston Astros organization for their sign-stealing scheme during the 2017 season, he underestimated baseball fans’ need for justice.

On Monday’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, Pat Ryan and I discuss an ESPN survey in which a majority of fans want to see Astros players penalized, MLB players speaking out against the sign-stealing scandal, and the continuing pursuit of incriminating videos and photos on #BaseballTwitter.

WISE Sports Radio MLB spot: Jan. 13, 2020

Sometimes, breaking news makes you toss previous plans in the trash. That happened for Monday’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment when Major League Baseball announced that Houston Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch were being suspended for one year due to their complicity in the team’s sign-stealing scheme during the 2017 season.

Anything else Pat Ryan and I planned to discuss was nixed, maybe shelved for Wednesday’s spot. I had some trouble recording for the first couple of minutes, so this clip picks up after Pat has already introduced the story. But we dive in from there.
