Hosted by Tyler Ash, who shares his opinions on the day's biggest topics in the NFL, NBA and MLB. Thought-provoking analysis on recent and upcoming games, news, transactions, rumors and more are featured in the podcast. The host often indulges in rants criticizing players and/or coaches who need to be put on blast. Every so often, the host declares the "Twitter Troll of the Day" in the world of sports and shares a "Shake-My-Head-Column."
A-Rod's Complicated Yankee Legacy; Tebow Sets Sights on MLB Career in Latest Publicity Stunt09/08/2016 Duración: 15min
Detailing the highs and lows of Alex Rodriguez's tenure with the Yankees, why the slugger's relationship with Derek Jeter tainted the New York fans' feelings towards A-Rod, and why his on-field production outweighed his ceaseless drama and controversies. Later, I condemn Tim Tebow for his sudden pursuit of a MLB career—an obvious publicity stunt for the over-dramatic former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback.
Pomeranz Traded To Red Sox; Brady To Serve Suspension15/07/2016 Duración: 22min
The Red Sox roll the dice in dealing top pitching prospect Anderson Espinonza away to the San Diego Padres in exchange for All-Star left-hander Drew Pomeranz. I examine if the Red Sox, who made their fourth trade in a seven-day span, made a short-sighted trade or if this move puts them over the top in the World Series chase as the club seeks a title in David Ortiz's final MLB season. Before I break down the blockbuster trade, I begin with a look at Tom Brady's decision not to appeal his four-game suspension to the Supreme Court.
KD Takes Easy Route in Joining 73-Win Warriors; Tribe on a Roll05/07/2016 Duración: 26min
Kevin Durant's decision to join the Golden State Warriors is vilified. The ex-Thunder forward, Durant joined the team that broke the record for regular-season wins and came back from a 3-1 deficit against his former team in the Western Conference Finals. Durant signing with the Warriors less than a month removed from the Thunder's heartbreaking playoff loss is the ultimate, "if you can't beat em, join em" move...The first-place Indians, winners of 15 of 17, are the best team in the AL Central because of their unmatched pitching rotation.
Jemele Hill Posts Ignorant Tweet About Orlando Shooting; Cavs Win Game 515/06/2016 Duración: 34min
Jemele Hill's offensive tweet ("So in a country where we have done everything possible to undermine the LGBTQ community, we are suddenly lecturing Islam on homophobia. Oh.") regarding the Orlando shooting is denounced. Monday's Twitter Troll of the Day, Hill made an uninformed and distasteful statement on a social media platform, yet ESPN has yet to condemn Hill. The network, which leans heavily left on the political spectrum, is revealing its double standard for punishing edgy political statements in its lack of discipline for Hill...Later on, I take a look at the upcoming Red Sox-Orioles three-game series at Fenway Park that features teams tied atop the AL East standings. I end the podcast discussing the Cavs' Game 5 victory over the Warriors and Cleveland's chances of coming back to win the series.
AL All-Star Game Voting Update: Rapid Reaction07/06/2016 Duración: 27min
MLB announced its second update for the American League All-Star Game voting on Tuesday. Three players from the Boston Red Sox are projected to start (Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley Jr. & David Ortiz), along with a trio of Kansas City Royals (Lorenzo Cain, Eric Hosmer & Salvador Perez), according to the most recent ballot. The fans are doing a terrific job voting in the most deserving players in the AL, with the only snub being Baltimore Orioles' Mark Trumbo (who should start over Cain). Despite my praise for the AL ballot, I argue the fans must do a much better job voting in the most worthy players in the National League.
Theo Epstein's Prowess as GM Exhibited Through Cubs, Red Sox; NBA Finals Game 2 Preview05/06/2016 Duración: 30min
Theo Epstein reshaped the Cubs from National League cellar dwellers to World Series favorites. The Cubs GM's brilliance is also displayed through the Red Sox's (his former team) dynamic offensive attack. I discuss Epstein's outstanding track record in the draft, as the current 25-man roster of the Red Sox includes 10 players from his regime. I open the podcast with some insight into the adjustments the Cavs must make in order to grab a win at Oracle Arena in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.
