Baseball WISE Sports Radio: Astros Win the World Series, Everybody Loves Dusty Baker

After a week off while Pat Ryan was on vacation, during which we missed the 2022 World Series, our weekly WISE Sports Radio chat covers the Houston Astros winning the World Series!

How did the Astros take over the series after the Phillies took a two-games-to-one lead? Could Philadelphia make another run next season? Houston almost certainly will. And maybe they’ll be managed again by Dusty Baker, the oldest manager to win a World Series at 73 years old.

Baseball WISE Sports Radio: Phillies vs. Astros in World Series

The Philadelphia Phillies have taken their improbable postseason run all the way to the World Series. On WISE Sports Radio, we chat about Bryce Harper’s star turn and how the Phillies are on the verge of a championship.

We also discuss the downfall of the New York Yankees and whether or not that will cost manager Aaron Boone his job. Elsewhere, the Texas Rangers surprised Major League Baseball by hiring veteran manager Bruce Bochy, who’s been retired for the past three years but boasts three World Series titles on his résumé.

Baseball WISE Sports Radio: Phillies Shock Braves, Dodgers Stun Padres in Postseason Chaos

We’re back talking baseball on WISE Sports Radio after last week’s spot had to be canceled. And just as we know three of the four teams that will play for an appearance in the World Series.

In the National League, the Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres — both of whom finished way out of first place in their respective divisions — face each other for the pennant. In the American League, the Houston Astros await the winner of the Guardians-Yankees division series. How did the Phillies beat the Braves? How did the Padres defeat the Dodgers?

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: Angels-Mariners Brawl, Bryce Harper Injury, Aaron Judge’s Payday

We’re back on WISE Sports Radio after a week off due to Pat Ryan not feeling well and technical difficulties at the radio station. And Major League Baseball provided plenty to talk about from the past week.

The Angels and Mariners threw down in a big brawl. Bryce Harper suffers a broken thumb that could cost the Phillies a playoff spot. Aaron Judge’s bet on himself is leading toward a major payday. And Freddie Freeman’s return to Atlanta after leaving the Braves gets emotional.

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.
