Not much for topical issues this week, we'll cover odds and ends and run a rare OPEN PHONES hour for our first hour on the podcast. On a small level we'll cover the Oakland A's slide following a blockbuster trade of Yoenis Cespedes for the Red Sox' Ace Jon Lester. Has it not been worth the trade so far after the A's lost 7 of 8 games? Will the A's still be confident they made the right choice following the dog days of summer? That AND Kevin on the Cape back with Dave for an extended "Random Questions" in Hour 2 or even earlier. Dave is going to owe Kevin a big apology! Special note: The title of the show has nothing to do with anything. Next week is our NFL Preview podcast.

MIke goes solo on Fanatic Radio as we talk Team USA and their road to the FIBA World Cup on who Coach K should keep after tonight's game in the Garden. There is a hilarious bit of Francesa and Calipari but does the Sports Pope have a point? The hype-or-not of the Little League World Series and what a motivtional speech and a girl named Mo'ne have in common, and the drama of the Cleveland Browns on what they should do with the case of Johnny Football after shooting the bird to the Redskin's bench.

Episode #3.40 - Krusty Francesa - Sponsored by: BLUE HAVEN- NYC Sports Bar
After discussing PJ's spot on observation that Mike Francesa is basically Krusty the Klown, some Scott Muni impressions, and a critical look at Lithuianian's dominance of World Strongest people competitions, we got to... THE BIG UNLOAD: The Yankees. A lot. From Girarid's gut, to A-Rod: Digit Hunter, to Jeter's injury, to the task impossible at hand, we discussed tons of ALCS Yankee stuff. It was fun. Our buddy Elwood the Indy Mets fan called to talk... Mets? SOMEBody didn't want to get into the thrashing the Jets handed his Colts on Sunday but he was good sport for coming on... Talked Jets and Sanpete's theory that Holmes being out may save Sanchez's Jets career (Hmmm, where did I see that today... perhaps in the NY Post?) and Cal is very thrilled at the return of blustery Rex. And the Giants are the best team in football. Period. We are duly impressed. The RTU: Funload: We came up with our pantheon of sketch comedy shows. Look for this to be released Friday for download as a stand alone podcast for consumption... Please subscribe to the RTU: PODCAST ON iTunes! We'll tell you about the twinkie...

With Mike on his April sojourn back to Texas, Flo holds down the fort. They will continue to discuss and preview this year's Final Four, the questions surrounding DeSean Jackson's departure from Philadelphia and his ensuing arrival in Washington, the controversial comments on the Mets' Daniel Murphy going on paternity leave by a couple WFAN hosts, and much more.
The gang is back together, recapping the first week of Detroit Tigers baseball. Al, Kurt and HookSlide talk TOOTBLANs, Brad Ausmus' strategy, Miguel Cabrera's 2000th hit, hiccups with instant replay, and sports talk radio hosts upset over paternity leave. Kurt also learns about the Dave Clark Five.
Bless You Boys Podcast 106 has a running time of 58 minutes and features Al Beaton, HookSlide, and of course, Kurt Mensching.
Undefeated! Walk off wins! Small sample sizes!
Brad Ausmus' strategy is compared to Jim Leyland's.
TOOTBLANs for everyone, especially Nick Castellanos.
Relief pitching starts to shake out.
Defense isn't great, but it's better than 2013.
Starting pitching remains dominant.
Offense doing enough to win, but it's no coincidence the Tigers start scoring runs in bunches when Miguel Cabrera's bat wakes up.
Working the kinks out of MLB instant replay. Then again, the NFL has had it for years and is still trying to get it right.
Sports talk radio hosts like Mike Francesa and Boomer Esiason make asses of themselves over the Mets' Daniel Murphy missing two games for paternity leave.
Kelli O'Hara, Broadway star of The Bridges of Madison County joins host Robin Milling backstage at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater in New York City. Kelli tells Robin her dressing room is decorated with photographic inspirations to put her into the mindset of Francesca like a map of Italy, an 18th century Italian sketch, as well as a picture of the actual Rosamund Bridge in Iowa where Robert (played by Steven Pasquale) and Francesa meet.
Born in Oklahoma on a farm where she chopped cotton and was the 'official lawn girl'; she and her sister would harmonize through the aisles of the cotton fields ironically singing 'Love Could Build A Bridge.' Kelli could tap into Francesca's farm life, but slipping into her lilting Neopolitan accent combined with a bit of Americana happens when she says 'Francesa,' puts on a brown wig over her blonde locks, darkens her eyebrows and wears a farmwife's dress. She also has a ritual on her walk to the stage of reading all the signs on the wall in her accent like, 'stage right,' or 'no toaster ovens please!'
Having a new addition to the family and loving relationship with her husband, Greg Naughton enriches her with love and emotion which she brings into the role of Francesca. She says, “I don't think I could've played this role without having what's going on in my personal life right now. You come to a place in your life where everything is just at the right time.”

The "Johan Santana" episode of the Rising Apple Report has arrived! Sam Maxwell will host this number 57, with Rich Sparago and Dan Haefeli joining him from the Rising Apple writing team!
Also joining them this week is Ted Berg of USA Today's For the Win!
There was a lot of anxiety amongst the fanbase regarding the Hot Stove season the last time Mr. Berg joined the Report, with basically all the moves happening since. We'll check in with Ted on how he feels the offseason has gone.
Mike Francesa reported yesterday that the Mets have made an offer to Stephen Drew, though the Mets "sources" are claiming otherwise via Daily News's Kristie Ackert. With a potential deal possibly close happening, we'll continue to discuss whether or not we think Stephen Drew makes the Mets a better team.
Terry Collins keeps saying things about the roster, and some of us keep taking him seriously. We'll talk about some of the outlandishness of his claims, and discuss the history he has of making ridiculous claims.
And of course, we'll discuss the coaches and players to have worn number 57 in Mets history.
So, join us at 6:30PM ET for the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report!
