Call in to speak with the host
Tonight at 8:30 on the Fanspeak Radio Network, join Alan Zlotorzynski & Stephen Shoup for the MLB SHOW /ORIOLES & NATIONALS REPORT.
Pitching, pitching and more pitching was the dominant statistical storyline in the 2013 MLB All-Star Game. This year’s contest was, like last year’s, a shutout, marking the first time in All-Star Game history that consecutive games were shutouts. The 3 runs scored were the fewest combined by the two teams in an All-Star Game since 1990.
Tonight, the guys will recap the three-day All-Star break, starting with the futures game. Alan & Steve will tell you which prospects shined and which ones could be the next Manny Machado/ Last year, Machado was in the futures game and this season is played in the Mid-Summer Classic.
They will then have highlights of the HR Derby and All-Star Game and tell you why Tuesday’s A.L. victory went exactly according to plan for Tigers manager Jim Leyland. The guys will also recap the impact of the Orioles and Nationals during the All-Star festivities.
Alan & Steve will then look ahead to the second half of the season and tell you which players and teams you can expect to stay hot, as well as which players will bounce back from poor first halves.
As all eyes now turn towards the July 31 trade deadline, the guys will tell you what possible blockbusters could take place.
It was a crazy week prior to the break. The Rays’ pitching got stingy, the Mariners’ bats got lively, a Brewer finally tossed a complete game, while the Pirates finally answer the A’s and Tim Lincecum finds his groove with a no-no. Alan will deliver all of the amazing stats and more from the week of July 8-17 and Steve joins Alan to deliver the Fanspeak Top 10 Power Poll.
The guys will finish the show with their reports on the Orioles and Nationals. Be sure to join the guys for a few hours of great baseball talk.
It's good to talk.
