Mets continue their hot streak in Philadelphia and beat the Phillies to maintain their lead on the NL East. Do the Mets now have a complete team ready for the postseason? We look at the Mets in the 2nd half plus the Dodgers come off the rails in Houston but rebound slightly in Cincinnati. Just how good are the Dodgers? The lack of reliable pitching comes into question, Dave covers the particulars. In Hour 2, Kevin returns for "Kevin's Random Questions" and we ask Kev why did the Red Sox fire Don Orsillo from the broadcast booth despite their problems being on the field? That and more with the Patriots and the NFL this season. Kevin and Dave offer predictions plus more.
Live show tonight at 9pm ET! Not a big agenda, but we hope to assemble a Mets Panel to talk about the Mets surge in the 2nd half of the season. Post trade-deadline, they're among the hottest teams in MLB! More on that plus Kevin's back for "Random Questions" tonight in Hour 2. Watch right here via YouTube:

Those crazy kids are back! Andy in Seattle, Ron in NJ, John in Connecticut and Say Hello to Ottis return for the "KIDS CLUB FOOTBALL PICKS." on the DITCOW podcast. Each week, the guys pick games from the NCAA and the NFL and we keep a running tally throughout the year and award the championship to the best record. We also talk about the football stories of the week: big games in the schedules, trends in College and Pro Football and more. Join us won't you? We even have a logo for the "Kids Club."
- Winner of the most individual weeks to date.
- Most split sweeps over the year. When you go 2-0 in either College or NFL picks for a week, that is a "split sweep." A 4-0 total week gives you *two* split sweeps.
- If split sweeps are equal, we look at who had best record the current week.
- If both persons have the same record for the week, we go to the person with the most split sweeps that particular week.
- To determine the week's winner: If the above is tied, we will decide by coin flip as determined by the 'Cow.
- To determine the season's winner: if all of the above is tied between the top two records, both persons will be "Co-Champions." That was the case last year with Ottis & Andy.
