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.

Baseball Radio: Josh Donaldson v. Tim Anderson, Max Scherzer, Jonny Gomes, Albert Pujols

On WISE Sports Radio, we discuss the fallout of that incident and whether Donaldson faces punishment from Major League Baseball. Our other topics include Max Scherzer’s injury and how it affects the New York Mets, “Red Sox legend” Jonny Gomes, and Albert Pujols’s chances at reaching 700 home runs.

Baseball Radio: Reds Alert, Don’t Mess with Max Scherzer, Red Sox Struggling, Brett Gardner

It takes a special team to lose a game despite allowing no hits by the opposition. That’s what the Cincinnati Reds did on Sunday, and they’re on pace to be especially bad among teams in the history of Major League Baseball.

On this week’s WISE Sports Radio baseball spot, we discuss that along with Max Scherzer having no use for ceremonial first pitches, Trevor Bauer fighting his two-season suspension, the Boston Red Sox playing far below expectations, and Brett Gardner only wanting to play for the New York Yankees.
