Gerry in Piscataway, a.k.a. Gerry Will from "The LGY Pod", returns to talk MLB with Dave and the many struggles for their respective Yankees and Dodgers.   Where has the offense gone on both teams and how are injuries hurting both clubs as they limp out of the gate?

Podcast: 2020 MLB Offseason Show with Ari and Gerry (01-23-20)

January 23rd, 2020 · Comments

2020-01-23-mlboffseasonshow.jpg

Gerry and Ari are back for this year's MLB Offseason Show.  The dominant topic for 2020 was the massive penalties for the Astros following MLB's investigation of their sign stealing in 2017.  Both the G.M. and Manager were suspended one year, followed by the Astros firing both persons outright.  The crew dig into why this was such a black mark for baseball, and how the suspensions were appropriate punishment, then speculate as to whether MLB should have gone even further with player punishments.  Afterwards, we get into collateral damage from the scandal: the Red Sox and Mets firing their respective managers Alex Cora and Carlos Beltran.  After that, we get into the numerous big transactions so far from the offseason.  Cole signs a giant contract to pitch for the Yankees, Rendon gets a pretty sizable contract to play third base for the Angels, and other big names move to new teams on a much better offeason than the 2019 offseason one year earlier.

2019-09-30-mlb-postseason-preview.jpg

Gerry and Dave return for the 2019 MLB Postseason Preview Show with Ari in Philadelphia "On Assignment."  First we look at the improbable run the Washington Nationals made, without Bryce Harper, to make the Wild Card round, along with the equally improbable run the Brewers made, winning 7 in a row, and a bunch of games late in the season.   Later, we cover the Division Series which include some interesting theater between the Yankees and Twins, then another series between the Cardinals and Braves, and we then look ahead to future predictions and our picks to win the league pennants and the World Series.

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.

Dave updates everyone during this special bonus mini-podcast the particulars from a wild and wacky Yankees/Twins game in which the lead changed every half inning from the top of the 8th all the way through the top of the 10th.  As Dave joins the game in progress, Aaron Hicks puts the capper on this very wild game.  Some brief thoughts about the matchup and why the pacing was inexcusable for an otherwise great MLB game.

Podcast: MLB Midseason Show with Ari and Gerry (07-10-19)

July 10th, 2019 · Comments

2019-07-10-mlb-midseason-show.jpg

It's the DITCOW MLB Midseason Show with Ari, Gerry, and Dave back to look at the great amount of new talent in the game: Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. on the Blue Jays, Fernando Tatis, Jr. on the Padres, Austin Riley on the Braves, Alex Verdugo on the Dodgers, and many other great young rookies out there.  Plus we look at the recently played London Series between the Red Sox and Yankees, cover the teams at the top and the "hot start" teams falling flat like the Mariners, Rays, and others.  Later in the show, we address the growing controversy of the juiced baseballs which MLB refuses to admit to.  The "new balls" are said to be responsible for the outrageous surge in home run totals in 2019.  The crew will investigate to see how valid the "new ball" claim is.
