Take your East Coast bias crap and shove it! This edition of Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo's "the Howitzer and Buzz-saw Show" focuses on the Wild Wild Freakin' Wild West.

Of course, the usual East suspects are still putting their paw prints all over the MLB off-season, it has so far been won by the West. Things all started with the Dodgers continuing to use all of Magic Johnson's cash (and South Park taught us he needs it to live!) to try to buy their way to a return to glory. Adding $400 billion last season didn't work, so the obvious next response is to add even more. Cue Zack Greinke. 

Not wanting to be outdone by their cross town rival, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (where they actually play) completed another splash. Last year it was Albert Pujols. Now, it's Josh Hamilton. The former AL MVP has agreed to a 5 year $125 million deal. Yup, the Red Sox made some moves. And other too. But the Wild Wild Freakin Wild West is the current big winner.

Following the baseball talk, we take a trip back East. Get off the ship! The Big East Conference is sinking at rapid pace! All signs are pointing to the basketball only schools forming their own conference. What will this do for college basketball? Is this the final dagger into the Big East Conference's coffin? Did the Buzz-saw foreshadow this months ago? Much to George's chagrin, yes, yes he did. 

Before the show closes with week 15's HBS NFL Pick'em Challenge, the guys give us their choice for MVP. Did Tom Brady officially enter the conversation after his Monday Night Football performance? Does Peyton's comeback story trump all? Or is a potential record breaking season from Adrian Peterson enough to buck the MVP quarterback trend? 

Coming at you from the East, yet talking West. The HBS is in your ears and conquering sports radio, one day, at a time....
