We’re getting closer to spring training and the start of the 2021 Major League Baseball season. And the defending World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers just brought back a key piece for their roster.
On Monday’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, we discuss the Dodgers re-signing Justin Turner and inking Trevor Bauer to shorter-term contracts is a trend that other MLB teams might follow, considering their recent success. Also, why did the New York Mets invite Tim Tebow to spring training? Does he really have a shot at a major league career?
Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred has the undesirable task of trying to make the sport more appealing to younger audiences and a decreasing fanbase. His latest idea to make the game more interesting is a radical change to the postseason format seemingly intended to make the playoffs more TV-friendly and reality TV-like.
On Wednesday’s WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, Pat Ryan and I discuss Manfred’s proposal, the Boston Red Sox naming a new manager, and 36-year-old pitcher Cole Hamels developing a shoulder injury.
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.
