Baseball Radio: Marcell Ozuna, Josh Hader, Noah Syndergaard, Paul O’Neill

After getting arrested for the second time in approximately 15 months, the Atlanta Braves have a Marcell Ozuna problem. With DUI charges following a domestic violence arrest, would the Braves prefer to move on from Ozuna? Probably, but Atlanta might also need him, as much as that might pain the team.

On our WISE Sports Radio baseball segment, we also chat about reliever Josh Hader’s struggles with the San Diego Padres, Noah Syndergaard apparently avoiding his former New York Mets teammates, and whether or not Paul O’Neill truly deserved to have his No. 21 retired by the New York Yankees.

Baseball Radio: Fernando Tatis Jr. Suspended, Al Avila Fired, Jacob deGrom Returns

We’re back on WISE Sports Radio after a break that went longer than planned, due to a vacation that was unfortunately eventful for host Pat Ryan. From a Bowls Media standpoint, we’ll still be doing Major League Baseball segments on Mondays. But NFL spots will be every other Thursday while Pat saves his energy to focus on the local high school football season.

This week, we chat about Fernando Tatis Jr.’s 80-game suspension for PED use, the Detroit Tigers firing general manager Al Avila, and star pitcher Jacob deGrom rejoining a New York Mets team that’s already playing excellent baseball.

Baseball Radio: Miguel Cabrera, Oakland A’s, Kyle Schwarber vs. Angel Hernandez, Gabe Kapler

Miguel Cabrera reaching 3,000 hits didn’t appear to draw the national headlines that such a story once did. But we led off our WISE Sports Radio baseball segment with the Detroit Tigers slugger joining some of the sport’s legends with his achievements.

We also discuss Kyle Schwarber going nuts over Angel Hernandez’s strike zone, poor attendance at Oakland Athletics games, and San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler refusing to play by baseball’s unwritten rules. And I included a few footnotes after the jump.

2022 MLB Predictions, Which Will Surely Be Wrong

Happy Baseball Opening Day! A 2022 Major League Baseball season that I doubted would begin on time (or be played at all) because of the labor dispute between team owners and players is going to happen. And there’s some excitement in Detroit after the Tigers won 77 games last year, finished on a strong note, signed some top free agents, and have promising young players ready to emerge.

I am terrible with predictions. Maybe I should start a gambling blog. But I suppose I tend to better with preseason picks, rather than playoff predictions. With that said, I’ll get these 2022 MLB predictions on the record so we can laugh about how wrong they were in October.

The Podcass 015: Lions suffer larceny at Lambeau

Glad The Podcass is on a Tuesday-Friday schedule, so we could have some near-instant response to the Detroit Lions’ 23-22 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football. What a debacle, with the referees making several terrible calls that cost the Lions a chance to win at Lambeau Field and move near the top of the NFC standings.

We break down and complain about those terrible calls, two in particular against Detroit’s Trey Flowers (0:32). Then, our WISE Sports Radio baseball segment covers big wins by the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals in the MLB playoffs over the weekend (16:21). Did you miss those amid all the football action?

The Podcass 007: Endgame’s endings, Def Leppard fame, and Miguel Cabrera complaints

After a one-week hiccup, it’s a catch-up Podcass!

Getting back on track, we clean up on topics from the previous week including Avengers: Endgame and its many endings for beloved characters, Def Leppard’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction and redemption, the Detroit Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera blaming others for his lack of home runs, and the passing of the legend inside the Chewbacca suit, Peter Mayhew. 

Show notes below:
