  • Frat House Sport's Clean-Up Hitters #32

    in Sports

    MLB’s version of “The Final Four” is ongoing with both the ALCS & NLCS and Frat House Sports’ Clean-Up Hitters are taking a hard look at the match-up between the Toronto Blue Jays – Kansas City Royals, and the Chicago Cubs – New York Mets


    Both series’ have a unique connection to thirty-years ago in 1985 – and you got to wonder whether in fact the outcome of the 2015 season had all been prophesized way back then.


    Regardless of how the NLCS turns out, many believe that the future is bright for both the Chicago Cubs and New York Mets, and they rule the National League for many seasons in a row.


    Be sure to tune-in to Frat House Mike, Nik Swartz, and “Frat Boys” Caleb & Nick talking about ALL of that, and much more – plus looking ahead to the World Series coming up next week at this time . . . and taking ALL of your calls at 347 – 826 – 9964!

    Make no mistake, the 2015 MLB Post-Season has been positively WONDEFUL . . . and, has had a little bit of everything! With JUST three shows remaining to this season, Frat House Sports’ Clean-Up Hitters are chatting up ALL of the incredible side stories that have developed around the tremendous play and exciting play on the field.


    Did THIS year’s Wild Card games – particularly the Chicago Cubs-Pittsburgh Pirates match-up – prove that these games MUST be IMMEDIATELY changed to (at least) a 3-game series?


    How about the fact, there’s been no “home field advantage”??? How about the fact both of the ALDS series have gone to 5-games when it appeared they could have been over by now? How about the Houston Astros melt-down in the eighth inning of Game 4? How about “the slide” by Chase Utley in Game 2 of the New York Mets-Los Angeles Dodgers game?


    We’re talking about ALL of that, and much more – plus looking ahead to the LCS’s coming up this weekend . . . and taking ALL of your calls at 347 – 826 – 9964!

    With just six games remaining in the MLB regular season we should be talking about all of the possible playoff scenarios, but Frat House Mike, Nik Swartz, & Nick are talking about Jonathan Papelbon and Bryce Harper. Surprisingly many around the league are backing Papelbon. Is Bryce Harper that polarizing? Did Harper have it coming, and will Jonathan Papelbon ever pitch for another team again?


    So far only the New York Mets have clinched their division. The Pittsburgh Pirates can still mathematically win the NL Central over the St. Louis Cardinals, but it’s not likely, right? And, it’s just a matter of time for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Chicago Cubs have guaranteed a post-season appearance for the first time in seven seasons.


    The AL continues to be the most compelling. The Kansas City Royals have clinched the AL Central and the Toronto Blue Jays are guaranteed the playoffs, but that’s all we know for sure!


    Always controversial Bobby Valentine says PED’s are good for sports and eventually will be permitted. Seriously Bobby?


    The Clean-Up Hitters of Frat House Sports are checking the Power Rankings; updating their Series Streak Challenge from last week and starting a new one for this weekend; and, taking your calls. You do NOT want to miss this show, OR the chance to call in and talk with the guys about your team, at: 347 – 826 – 9964. Head home to the 'house' from 7:00 – 8:30 pm ET!

    MLB baseball now enters its second season leading up to the timeless tradition of The World Series. THAT all begins tonight with the AL Wild Card Game between the New York Yankees and Houston Astros, and the Frat House Sports’ Clean-Up Hitters will be joined live from Yankee Stadium by our own Nik Swartz to provide a bit of the playoff flavor!


    We know the contenders for the NL Wild Card Game as well and we know half of the LDS’s match-ups. We’ll be reviewing and chatting about all of those as we preview the first week of baseball post-season.


    Well, it didn’t take long. The Washington Nationals organization showed their displeasure with the season outcome by firing manager Matt Williams and the entire coaching staff. Rumors now circulate that Cal Ripken Jr. may be his successor.


    C.C. Sabathia shocked the Yankees and all of baseball announcing the day before his team began the playoffs that he was entering rehab and not available for the playoffs. How will this affect the Yankees should they advance past the AL Wild Card game? Also, always controversial Bobby Valentine says PED’s are good for sports and eventually will be permitted.


    You do NOT want to miss this show OR the chance to call in with Frat House Mike, Caleb, and special guest panelist from CLW83’s Touch ‘Em All program, Jessica Brand about your team at: 347 – 826 – 9964.

    Less than 20 games remaining in the regular MLB season and the Clean-Up Hitters of Frat House Sports, are examining every single possible playoff scenario.


    We pretty much know where the NL is going, but the storylines over the AL are tremendously compelling with the Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees and the Texas Rangers, Houston Astros and Minnesota Twins. Frat House Mike, Nik Swartz, and “Frat Boy” Nick have got the AL under the magnifying glass.


    The crew then turns the clock back six months ago to begin re-analyzing their own pre-season predictions by each division. That should be a hoot!


    The 2016 schedule has already been released, and the guys will take a look at some of the idiosyncrasies and unique match-ups.


    There’s only a few weeks remaining, so you do not want to miss a single one of the last few Frat House Sports’ Clean-Up Hitters programs for this season . . . and, be sure to call-in to: 347 – 826 – 9964!

    The countdown is on now for real as the MLB regular season has just a dozen days remaining. Join your hosts Frat House Mike, Nick & Sean this evening beginning at 7pm as they discuss the teams that are heating up as the cooler autumn temperatures and shorter days signal the excitement of the 2015 post season playoffs.


    The fellas are having a look back to 6 months ago when they each offered their predictions of the leaders and standings by the time the calendar reached October 5. This will be fun to review and learn which (if any) on the panel had the best crystal ball insights. 


    While favorites are coming into focus in the divisions, there's still some very compelling matchups to look forward to over the coming week, and they're shining a spotlight on several, including the BlueJays/Yankees, Angels/Astros, Twins/Indians & Cubs/Pirates. Also tonight: Tulowitzki to Toronto was a big "break"; maybe too big? How short a leash will the Mets keep Matt Harvey on going forward? What do you think of that "new" oldster, Chris Colabello?


    The guys are checking the Power Rankings, they'll chat about the "deeds done" by AC/DC to the Cubs' field that aren't "dirt cheap" to fix, and they're updating the Series Streak Challenge from last week and starting a new one for this weekend. You do NOT want to miss this show, OR the chance to call in and talk with the guys about your team, at: 347-826-9964. Head home to the 'house' from 7-8:30 !

    We’re in the count-down to the end as there’s now just about 25-games remaining. For some “on-the-plus-side-of-the-bubble” the conclusion couldn’t come fast enough. For some so far-out, well one might be able to make the same comment.


    The New York Mets however are NOT one of those as they have now opened-up a 5-game lead over the Washington Nationals but, this week a bit of a controversy broke out surrounding a possible inning-count on Matt Harvey. Really? Haven’t we been here before a few seasons ago with the Washington Nationals and Stephen Strasburg? Frat House Mike and “Frat Boys” Nick & Caleb will be talking about it!


    After a slow start, there have suddenly been six no-hitters this season, three in the month of August alone and one from a pitcher some thought might be better in the minor leagues.


    This year’s games have gotten shorter; perhaps Curt Schilling’s media career as well; the Kansas City Royals are dealing with a childhood disease; and a crazy Chicago White Sox fan desecrates Wrigley Field!

    Well, here we go it's September now and about 30 games remaining in the MLB season, and I think Frat House Mike and “Frat Boys” Nick & Sean will be probably determine that it’s no longer necessary to talk about the Washington Nationals or Baltimore Orioles.


    But, they will be talking about the St. Louis Cardinals, Pittsburgh Pirates, Chicago Cubs, and the NL Central. Is it the best division . . . EVER??? Yep, some are saying so and apparently there’s historical evidence to back it up.


    After a slow start, there have suddenly been six no-hitters this season, three in the month of August alone and one from a pitcher some thought might be better in the minor leagues.


    “Shoeless Joe” Jackson has been waiting nearly 100 years to get into the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum  . . . and, it appears that he’ll be waiting a lot longer as Commissioner Rob Manfred denied his reinstatement. What does this mean for Pete Rose’s chance? Joining us to discuss, will be Frat House Sports friend and Founder / Editor-in-Chief of Baseball Magazine baseballmagazine.net, Billy Brost.

    With just a bit over 40 games remaining in the season, it seems it’s now coming down to just a handful of teams – but, there’s still plenty on intrigue for Frat House Mike, Nik Swartz and “Frat Boy” Caleb to chat about and analyze.


    The New York Mets are now running away from a self-imploding Washington Nationals team, while the AL East may actually have three teams in the playoffs. How in the world did this all happen?


    The trade-deadline was nearly three weeks ago, yet “trades” continue to be discussed? Huh, what? How is that possible? The guys get into a debate about the MLB “Waiver Rules”. Does anyone really understand the whole system . . . and, does it really make any sense? Just move the trade deadline back and get rid of the “waiver” system altogether, right?


    The MLB playoff schedule has been released, and if the World Series goes seven games, the final game will fall after Election Day!!! Yet, some are calling for the Wild Card spots be determined by a three or five game-series! How would THAT be possible without shortening the season?


    Bryan Mitchell’s injury generates the call for protection for pitchers and the seriousness of head-injuries in baseball. Realistic, or a lot to do about nothing?


    As always you can count on “Caleb’s Sports Machine” updates; FHS’ “useless” Power Rankings; and, an update to their Series Streak Challenge. Oh, and make sure you bring your calls to: 347-826-9964

    A mere10 days following a very brisk MLB trade deadline has seen immediate results (for better & worse) around the league, so be sure to join Frat House Mike along with "Frat Boys" Sean & Nick for analysis and commentary on Clean-Up Hitters #22.


    In addition, this week the fellas are joined by special guest, distinguished writer, Editor-in-Chief and Founder of Baseball Magazine, Billy Brost, who will share his truly fascinating (and successful) mission to relaunch the 107 year-old publication in a 21st Century format, rich with both history of the game along with relevance to the modern sport. This is a wonderful story and a remarkable tribute to America's Pastime you simply MUST hear !


    Of course it wouldn't be a Tuesday evening without great debate "around-the-horn" and the guys are looking at which teams were "Buyers" 21 days ago that might actually be "Sellers" today with a pushed-back trade deadline date. Also,Yasiel Puig is riding the pine (who'd-a-thunk-it?); is Utley worth the "chase"? (rumor has it the SF Giants might still think so); the BlueJays & the Cubs are coming on strong while the Astros' & Yankees' directions are suddenly wrong.


    Yep, they've got your current standings, Power Rankings and a few real surprises on deck as well as results from the Series Streak Challenge. Bring your calls to: 347-826-9964

    Heeeee's Baaaack! Yep, "Frat House" Mike is back in the big chair this week after a vacation and he's joined by "Frat Boys" Nick & Caleb to take a look at what has been the most active MLB trade deadline since, well, maybe ever. Which teams put themselves in a position to win? Which teams sold themselves a bit too thin? Listen in to see where your club ranks.


    There's no doubt that the Houston Astros were bargaining hard up to the deadline, and the guys are welcoming in special guest Jayson Braddock of ESPN 97.5, Houston to disect all the moves made by Astros GM Jeff Luhnow. Was the strategy the right move? Are the Astros now in a position to gain some 'respect' in the league or really, are they simply a "One-&-Done" playoff pretender? Listen in to get the real-feel from down there in Texas.


    Of course Caleb's Sports Machine will bring the current happenings in baseball as the boys have a look at the Power Rankings since last week (did somebody say Toronto?). Commissioner Manfred weighs in on moving the trade deadline back perhaps (has HE been listening to the SHOW?), Nick offers up some fun (crazy) minor league shenanigans, and they all "tip their hats" to the 2015 MLB Hall of Fame class.


    Get up on deck and give the fellas a call with your thoughts and reactions to: 347-826-9964 beginning at 7pm !!
