Tune in today for the second part of our 2021 National League preview! Trey and I go through the projected win totals and odds for each NL team to make the playoffs, plus we give our predictions on who we think will win each division and earn the Wild Card spots. Stay tuned til the end for a player prop bet as we give our picks for which player will lead the league in home runs in 2021.
As we inch closer to the 2021 MLB season, it's time to begin our season previews. We start with the National League, and with Los Angeles as the favorite, who better to join us than a former Dodger? 1982 National League Rookie of the Year and two-time World Series winner Steve Sax joins us on today's episode to break down just how far ahead the Dodgers are in the NL. Plus, we get Steve's predictions on each of the division winners and Wild Card teams.
This week on Baseball Across the Commonwealth, we travel to the Northern Virginia city of Fredericksburg. The city is home to plenty of history, but one of the more exciting things happening in 2021 is the inaugural season of the Fredericksburg Nationals.
The Nationals were originally supposed to begin play in 2020, but with the MiLB season canceled, their first season was pushed back a year. Now they're ready to open up their gates, and they've got a lot of fun stuff planned for this season.
We also chat with 6 Bears and A Goat Brewing Co., voted the best brewery in Fredericksburg three years in a row. They are brewing the official beer of the Fred Nats, and they've got a lot to offer at their taproom. Tune in for both of those conversations and more!
On this St. Patrick's Day, Trey and I take some time to look at the members of the Irish American Baseball Hall of Fame, with a bit of trivia. Plus, we give our thoughts on MLB experimenting with rule changes in Minor League Baseball.
And what St. Patrick's Day would be complete without some beer? Mariah joins us again for "So You Think You Don't Like Beer?" but this time, I'm picking the drink. We're tasting the Dublin classic, Guinness Draught Stout. Tune in for all that and more!
Trey Lyle and I are back at it this week with another breakdown of the latest college baseball and Spring Training news. Virginia Tech is all the way up to No. 12 in Baseball America's rankings this week after winning their first ever series against UNC last week. The Hokies took a walk-off victory over VCU last night and are back against the Rams this afternoon.
Plus, we discuss the fan mail that we've sent in our lives and how the rise of social media has changed the way we interact with our favorite athletes.
