The HBS: Fall Magic
By: Mike Asti and George Gerbo
Fall means one main thing on the sports calender, postseason baseball. Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo guide you through this seasonal change. But remember, they won’t dumb anything down for the buffoons.
Football has been taking over the headlines (and this show) with asinine off the field drama. Now it’s baseball’s turn to gain some attention. Most of the pennant races have wrapped up, and the October puzzle piece is almost finished.
The Pirates validate their magical 2013 with back to back playoff appearances. Can Andrew McCutchen and crew make an even deeper run this time around? Will this finally be the year the Dodgers get Vin Scully’s voice back on the World Series stage? Is there even a debate on Clayton Kershaw being the NL MVP? What’s the Nationals biggest weakness?
With the usual Red Sox and Yankee powerhouses out of contention, the American League is open for an uncommon champion. Who is the true AL favorite, the Angels and their super-stars, the Orioles and their bats, or the Tigers and their names? They all may look good on paper, but Mike is fully slurping the under the radar Royals. Does Billy Beane need his A’s to win for his legacy? Your favorite sports genius’ have the answer to why Kansas City’s historic season been ignored mostly ignored.
Major League Baseball is entering its epic month, while college football is starting to separate the contenders from the pretenders. Forget the polls, who is the best team in the nation? FYI: it’s not Florida State.
Another week in the annual HBS NFL Pick’em Challenge continues. Sorry George, the heel always wins.
The Howitzer and Buzz-saw are simply better than you, and conquer sports radio, one day, at a time….
