Baseball Radio: Braves Injury, David Ortiz, Shohei Ohtani, Hall of Fame Inductees

Our WISE Sports Radio segments will go on a two-week hiatus while Pat Ryan takes a vacation. Unfortunately, that means we won’t be talking baseball leading up to and after the Major League Baseball trade deadline. But hey, a summer break is welcome. The show returns Aug. 8.

Going into that break, we discuss how Adam Duvall’s season-ending injury could affect the Atlanta Braves, David Ortiz’s enormous popularity, Buck O’Neil finally getting into the Baseball Hall of Fame, Shohei Ohtani’s trade value, the collapse of the Boston Red Sox, and two St. Louis Cardinals stars whose refusal to be vaccinated could be costly.

I should despise David Ortiz because of his grand slam versus the Detroit Tigers in the 2013 American League Championship Series, but I just can’t dislike the guy.

As mentioned, he’ll always have a place in Boston sports lore for the speech he gave at Fenway Park after the Boston Marathon bombing.

And Ortiz was in one of the best ESPN SportsCenter commercials in recent memory.

You can stream The WISE Guys from 3 to 6 p.m. ET at wisesportsradio.com (courtesy of Mars Hill University) or the TuneIn app. Locally in the Asheville area, dial up 1310 or 970 AM and 102.9 FM. And thanks to Blue Mountain Pizza (a favorite when I used to live nearby) for sponsoring this week’s segment.
