The crew is back for the 2019 Kickoff of our "Football Picks" podcast on DITCOW!  Andy in Seattle, John in Connecticut, and Ron in N.J. break down the surprising amount of juice from two "Week 0" kickoff games: Florida/Miami and Arizona/Hawaii.  Then we roll out our first picks of the season for the Official Week 1 Kickoff slate during Labor Day Weekend.  Mike in North N.J. joins the guys and Dave with his guest picks.  We'll preview some of those Week 1 games as well: Duke/Alabama, Fresno St./USC, Houston/Oklahoma, and the other big matchups.

Later we will integrate a PGA Tour Recap segment following Football Picks as Mike, John, and Andy stay on to recap the best moments from the Pro Golf season, capped off by Rory McIlroy winning the Tour Championship last Sunday.

Podcast: MLB August Update with Gerry in Piscataway (08-27-19)

August 27th, 2019 · Comments

2019-08-27-mlb-august-update.jpg

Gerry in Piscataway re-joins Dave for our latest MLB Update show.  On this edition we focus on the two teams at the top of the standings: the Yankees in the AL and the Dodgers in the NL.  Both teams went head to head in Los Angeles over the weekend, and the Yankees virtually dominated the whole way.   What went wrong for the Dodgers during the weekend showdown and is this a sign of the flaws to come in the postseason, or was it just a bad few days in an otherwise big season?   Later we look at nuances with both teams' fanbases and try to gain perspective for what both clubs have in the postseason.  Certainly both rosters are loaded with depth and Gerry will break down the Yankee injuries while Dave looks at ways the Dodgers can work around a terrible bullpen and put their excellent starting rotation to its advantage.   Plus other topics such as the terrible Players Weekend uniforms, players perhaps going too far showing up umpires, and a look at the wild card chases in both the AL and NL.
