John, Ron, Andy, and Dave return for this week's FOOTBALL PICKS, Week 10 edition.  This week, we preview the epic Alabama/LSU game, where LSU's had a good year thus far going against one of the most dominant Alabama teams of the decade.   We also recap more madness in College Football including three key Pac 12 upsets, a letdown for Texas, and the latest CFP Rankings.  From NFL action, a recap of a great Packers/Rams shootout, Andy points out the Saints' road dominance against the spread, and a look ahead to the NFL's Week 9 action.  Then it's this week's Football Picks from the panel and guest picker Umberto's Clam House.

Podcast: 2018 World Series Recap (10-30-18)

October 30th, 2018 · Comments

2018-10-30-world-series-recap.jpg

Ari in Philadelphia joins Dave to recap a dominant performance by the Red Sox over the Dodgers in a five game series win.  The Red Sox get outstanding performances by David Price, Nathan Eovaldi, and a bunch of unsung heroes at the plate to overpower the Dodgers.  The Dodgers battled in every game, but we look at how bad clutch hitting, horrible in game management, and other disappointments undermined their bid for their first championship since 1988.

Later we look at what's to come for both franchises.  A look at impending free agents on either side, plus Dave runs down why the Dodgers are closer to that elusive championship than everybody thinks.  The guys debunk the narrative of the Red Sox human/savvy instinct, a look at the Mets new unorthodox pick for GM, where it went wrong for Dave Roberts, Kershaw's future, and other news from baseball.

Podcast: 2018 World Series Preview with Gerry and Ari (10-22-18)

October 22nd, 2018 · Comments

2018-10-22-world-series-preview.jpg

Gerry in Piscataway and Ari in Philadelphia join Dave to preview this year's World Series between the Dodgers and Red Sox.  First, we cover the Red Sox unlikely blowout five game ALCS win over the Astros.  Next, we cover a very strange but exciting and dramatic Dodgers seven game series win over the Brewers.   Fidz (Ari) digs into the improbable performances by the Red Sox bullpen and David Price.  Dave will break down the redeeming moments for Cody Bellinger, Yasiel Puig, and Clayton Kershaw.  Likewise, the crew looks at the Wade Miley one batter "start" in Game 5 and other questionable decisions by manager Craig Counsell.   What made regular season beasts like Christian Yelich and Jesus Aguilar struggle in the postseason?  From the ALCS, were the Astros injuries to Carlos Correa and Jose Altuve too much to overcome?  How did the Red Sox defeat the Astros' impressive rotation including Justin Verlander in Game 5?  Later, we look ahead to the World Series with our previews and predictions.  The Dodgers and Red Sox are about to meet for the first time since 1916.  We also will look back late in the show to the Yankees shortcomings and Gerry runs down what went wrong in their postseason.
