Let the fun begin. Playoffs? You’re talking about…playoffs? Yes, Jim Mora. Yes, we are. The best time of the year. Soon all four major sports will be playing at the same time. We can go back and forth discussing and arguing whether Major League Baseball should keep its current one-game Wild Card playoff setup, but the fact of the matter is, it’s downright entertaining. It’s exciting to watch two teams fight it out, with it all on the line, in a winner-take-all single-elimination style game. You never know what’s going to happen. The amount of drama and emotion hanging on the balance of every pitch is what makes baseball the greatest game in the world.

Afterward, we break down the Division Series and hand out the awards.
Hope you enjoy the show! Continue reading

Both names rang well in the ears of the Pittsburgh faithful, but the fans wanted top-tier work to match the expectations of the names alone. With the Pirates fighting to get back into the playoff picture, Archer and Kela are under a microscope.
