The HBS: The Wild Card

by Asti

By: Mike Asti and George Gerbo

Arrieta

This episode of the Howitzer and Buzz-saw Show is a wild card, to say the least. Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo take you on a wild podcast ride.

Wild Card Cubs

Astros

Major League Baseball’s Wild Card Round has continued to spark heated debates. Does baseball need to address the playoff format? Is it an issue when 98 and 97 win teams are playing each other in one game while teams with fewer wins are sitting at home already in the next round? What possible “fixes” are even realistic? Mike, in typical heel fashion, explains why making the Wild Card Game into a best of three series would actually put the division winners at a disadvantage. Why have the road teams had so much success?

Blue Jays and Rangers

Regardless of the Wild Card issue, the MLB postseason has moved to the division series. Can Jake Arrieta “pull a Bumgarner” and help break a century plus curse? Are the Cubs the new favorite to win the NL pennant? Will the Dodgers finally play to their potential, instead of constantly disappointing in October? Who is the favorite in the American League? Do the Astros and Rangers have a shot at disrupting the assumed AL collision course of an ALCS between Toronto and Kansas City?

Suh

Joe Philbin

Eagles

We’ve already seen the coaching axe drop in the NFL. Miami has fired Joe Philbin. While this move was obvious and long overdue, where do the Dolphins go from here? Can Ndamukong Suh live up to his contract? Has Chip Kelly also put himself on the hot seat with the Eagles struggles? How does Chip Kelly’s tenure in Philadelphia tie into a premiere college football program (cough, Texas)?

Mike Babcock

Dylan Larkin

A new NHL season is here. Will the Patrick Kane drama and the loss of some key pieces point to the end of the Blackhawks dynasty? Phil Kessel is in Pittsburgh. Mike Babcock is in Toronto. It’s only day two of another asinine season.

The HBS, conquering sports radio, one day, at a time….
