The 2020 Major League Baseball season is set to begin in three days and one team doesn’t know where it will play its home games this year. Seriously.
On this week’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, we discuss the Toronto Blue Jays not being allowed to play in Canada because of COVID-19 travel concerns, Yasiel Puig no longer playing for the Atlanta Braves, and storylines to watch for the 2020 season.
With just over a week until the 2020 Major League Baseball season begins, the Atlanta Braves made a surprise move in signing outfielder Yasiel Puig. The young slugger’s behavior has made him a difficult fit in the past, but his bat and defense certainly make the Braves better.
On WISE Sports Radio‘s baseball segment, Pat Ryan and I looked at the pros and cons of the Puig signing, recapped injuries to key players during Summer Camp, highlighted potential surprise contenders, shared our favorite All-Star Game moments, and recommended some sports documentaries:
Is this really my last radio hit for 2019? I wish I’d been more aware of that while recording, though I did make sure to wish Pat Ryan and the WISE Guys crew a Happy New Year.
Catching up on some baseball news after Christmas week, Pat and I cover former Asheville Tourists star Corey Dickerson signing with the Miami Marlins, and the Toronto Blue Jays and Chicago White Sox taking big steps toward building playoff contenders for 2020. Oh, and some Star Wars!
