MLB Update, Recap and Perspectives (LCS): Tuesday, 10-16-18 (click post for audio)

MLB Update:

  • Boston unleashes a very venomous Eovaldi on the unsuspecting Stros, and Nathan holds them at bay long enough for Bradley’s hot bat to finish them off in a breakout 8th inning. It’s not time for the World Champions to put up or shut up … and that means more than some glossy Instagram highlight posts by hot corner Houdini Bregman. #RedSox #Astros
  • Dodgers win despite more futility at the plate, overcoming numerous strikeouts, wasted opportunities and men left on base in an extra innings win over the punchless Brewers. Counsell has a brain fart in the 13th, deciding to pitch to Bellinger and passing up an opportunity to take his chances with grand disappointment Grandal. With Kershaw scheduled for Game 5, the advantage would seem to tilt back in LA’s direction, but given Clayton’s history in big games, who can really say. #Dodgers #Brewers

MLB Update:

  • Andrew makes another nice try for the cycle, and the Red Sox jettison the Jays. #Jays #RedSox
  • Milwaukee’s known as a team of great pretenders, and right now they’re doing one hell of an acting job, sporting the best record in the NL; however, this team is indeed loaded with hitting and may be too loaded to implode come late Summer. #Cardinals #Brewers
  • Tigers maul Angels in Memorial Day massacre in Motown. #Angels #Tigers
  • Aside from a little noise from Greg Bird, Justin silences the boo birds in New York with a dazzling performance. #Astros #Yankees
  • Nats starting to break away from the pack, now that they have some offense; Rendon’s drive sends three home in battle of the Beltway! #Nationals #Orioles


MLB Update, Recap and Perspectives: Thursday, 5-17-18 (click post for audio)

MLB Update:

  • Bucs continue to make the most of this soft underbelly of their schedule by paddling the Pads. But don’t be so quick to dismiss their so far stellar performance (without Josh Harrison). This team has hitting and pitching and is too young and naive to know they shouldn’t be leading their division. At 25 to 1 to win the NL and 50 to 1 to win it all, they seem like a bit of a bargain. #Pirates #Padres
  • Bosox carpet bomb the O’s, as Price gets over his carpal tunnel video game thumb cramps. #Orioles #RedSox
  • Have the Dodgers made an about face; Maeda would have you so believe. #Dodgers #Marlins
  • Don’t look for the Phils to collapse anytime soon; as for the Cardinals, they’ll also be hanging around … like the common cold. #Phillies #Cardinals
  • By hitting the long ball with so much regularity, Khris Davis is making people in Oakland forget about the nightmare of moneyball. #Athletics #BlueJays

NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Sunday, 12-31 (click post for audio)

NFL Update:

  • Give AZ credit for fighting for the bitter end, and shame on Seattle for never solving their field goal foibles, among other issues. Arians will move on to bigger and better things. #Cardinals #Seawawks
  • Raiders pray for Gruden to save them, and Chargers think about what might have been …if could have only made more field goals. #Chargers #Raiders
  • Jags continue to be stuck in neutral, which is no way to go into the second season; Titans stumble in despite continued malfunctions in their own attack. #Jaguars #Titans
  • Cam and Panthers put up minimal resistance and effort in Atlanta, which means flawed Falcons get to defend their NFC crown after all …#Panthers #Falcons
  • Miami does its usual disappearing act in the 1st half and that’s enough to push the Bills to the promised land.#Bills #Dolphins
  • Poe Ravens –since when can you not count on Bengals doing the wrong thing? Since yesterday! #Ravens #Bengals
  • Rams rest up, while Niners make a statement about next year. #Niners #Rams
  • Steelers make good use of their regularly scheduled scrimmage against the Browns… working out a wide range of wide receivers and giving Landry some quality PT. As for Cleveland, just more humiliation with Hue. #Browns #Steelers
  • Eagles donate a win to the Cowboy coffer. #Cowboys #Eagles
  • Redskins regress to sub-.500 thanks after getting roughed up in East Rutherford. Time to move on from both Kirk Cousins and the loafing coaching staff. #Redskins #Giants
  • We’ll never know exactly why Brady found it necessary to put on his Victoria’s Secret scuba gear against the pathetic Jets; what is clear, is it’s another year and another #1 seed in the AFC for NE. #Jets #Patriots
  • Hut hut hike, and this game goes to the much more talented Vikes, who cause nothing but trouble for Truby. #Bears #Vikings
  • Despite today’s meaningless win of the Texans and the not-so-great TJ Yates, Pagano’s gotta go. #Colts #Texans
  • Packers pack it in a week early, while Lions can, as a technicality, boast about their winning record … which is small consolation for a season of missed opportunities. #Lions #Packers
  • Chiefs inspire belief in their fans that this team may in fact be back where they were in week 1… which mindset they’ll likely need in a few weeks. #Chiefs #Broncos
  • Saints back in to division title, while Bucs finally show up when it matters … leaving a door open for Carolina which was never opened… #Panthers #Buccaneers

On the Sunday, 11-12 edition of ChabDog Sports Talk (Pt. 2):


  • We go back to the good old days, when Spacey could negotiate real good severance packages and Hoffman was an ultra polite, apologetic and well-mannered hotel guest
  • Marc goes out of his way to make the point that “Girls like funny guys”
  • Dylan explains just why you shouldn’t scoff at Goff or pass him off as a flash in the pan
  • Eric goes crazy with the puns when he calls Young young, while Caruso goes crazy when he sees Steve’s Amazonian wife
  • As usual, ChabDog steps on a minefield when, against his better instincts, he picks the Skins
  • It’s morning again, at our studios in Newport Beach
  • Why Packer podcasters have apparently packed it in
  • Good for all those who refused to allow the Bears, of all teams, to receive 5
  • AP and Brady on the same team=cheesey
  • NE’s QB is the first employee in history to actually low ball his employer … ridiculous
  • The Chargers coming to LA was nothing short of a bowel movement
  • and more

MLB Update, Recap and Perspectives: Thursday, 5-25

MLB Update:

  • Houston homer is heroic in the face of ferocious Tigers. #Tigers #Astros
  • May is bearing witness to the fact that there may indeed be life in Boston after Papi …. well maybe…. #RedSox #Rangers
  • Heartless Terry Collins has no reservations about putting Montero out there on short notice to face the wolves in friar frocks. Monumental mistake. #Mets #Padres
  • Almost in it till it was over, Nova hangs around long enough to deprive the Braves of a victory. #Pirates #Braves

MLB Update:

  • Buccos recover their cool, riding a wave of tasty pitching by rookie Kuhl and lighting up Anderson with a 5-run 1st. ‪#‎Pirates‬ ‪#‎Dodgers‬
  • Cards look Oh so poised, as they fight back for a critical Sunday night victory over the surprised Cubbies. #Cubs #Cardinals
  • Huge late inning rally by O’s exposes the Giants’ achilles heel … shoddy relief pitching, including a now 2-4 closer. ‪#‎Orioles‬ ‪#‎Giants‬
  • Seattle has come from seemingly out of nowhere to catch Houston in the AL West, and now sets its sights on slumping Texas. ‪#‎Rangers‬ ‪#‎Mariners
  • Blessed with a huge lead in the AL West, the Rangers’ biggest challenger may not be the team adjacent to them in the standings, but rather complacency. ‪#‎Rangers‬ ‪#‎Tigers‬
  • CO win column blackout continues in Philadelphia, despite some impressive hitting from Blackmon. ‪#‎Rockies‬ ‪#‎Phillies‬
  • Nationals continue to excel at the national pastime, while it seems nothing can save the Braves. ‪#‎Nationals‬ ‪#‎Braves‬
  • Red Sox get more than a few healthy hacks in against Zack, ringing up the AZ stopper for a ton of runs, including dingers galore for Betts. #RedSox #Diamondbacks
  • Marlins manufacture a big win against CWS and Sale, scratching out some critical late inning runs with timely hitting and snuffing out the tying run with a huge throw to the plate by Yelich. ‪#‎Marlins‬ ‪#‎WhiteSox‬
  • Reeling Mets pick themselves off the mat after great game by Matz. ‪#‎Mets‬ ‪#‎Padres‬
  • Nightmarish season continues for Angels; another perfectly scripted collapse, this time by Weaver. ‪#‎Indians‬ ‪#‎Angels‬
  • Stros pitchers can’t figure out how to tip toe around Tulo. ‪#‎Jays‬ ‪#‎Astros‬
  • Yankees do a bad job keeping light-hitting Tampa Bay at bay. ‪#‎Yankees‬ ‪#‎Rays‬
  • No excuse for the defending world champs to lose to the Twins… so they don’t

  • Florimon picks Pirates off the deck in the 15th with a monster triple. ‪#‎Pirates‬ ‪#‎Diamondbacks‬
  • Melvin gives the Padres a bit power upgrade. ‪#‎Padres‬ ‪#‎Braves
  • Oakland wins another game, just to prove that they’re still dangerous. ‪#‎Athletics‬ ‪#‎Dodgers
  • The team that used to play at the Stick can still flip the switch; bad news for the Cards when Giants Bumgarner picks up the stick. ‪#‎Giants‬ ‪#‎Cardinals‬
  • Nationals find their offensive legs in the thin air of CO. ‪#‎Rockies‬ ‪#‎Nationals‬
  • Solid effort by Houston strengthens their hold on first in AL West; Marwin is key to Astros’ win. ‪#‎Astros‬ ‪#‎Rays‬
  • Seattle slows down the Rangers behind Iwakuma. ‪#‎Mariners‬ ‪#‎Rangers
  • Kinsler turns killer in Chicago. ‪#‎Tigers‬ ‪#‎Cubs‬
  • Cin’s Chapman commits sin by trying to curve one in, when he should have just thrown the hard cheese. Royals tie it in the ninth and, as usual, win things in extra innings.
  • Red Sox Shaw puts on a hitting exhibition that really sticks in the Indians’ craw. ‪#‎RedSox‬ ‪#‎Indians‬
  • Toronto’s prospects look pretty posh with all that production from Josh. ‪#‎BlueJays‬ ‪#‎Phillies‬
  • With deGrom and Granderson in such fine form, perhaps the Mets aren’t suffering from delusions of grandeur. ‪#‎Mets‬ ‪#‎Orioles‬
  • A-rod continues to be a lightning rod when it comes to lighting into pitches with the bases loaded. No. 25 slams the Twins. ‪#‎Twins‬ ‪#‎Yankees‬
