SORT BY Relevancy
Evan Witalison and Troy Otradovec welcome special guest, Molly Knight. Molly is the author of "The Best Team Money Can Buy: The Los Angeles Dodgers' Wild Struggle to Build a Baseball Powerhouse."
Here is section of the press release; for the full copy visit www.simonandschuster.biz
In THE BEST TEAM MONEY CAN BUY, Knight tells the whole story of that transformation and the parts played by the likes of manager Don Mattingly, pitcher Clayton Kershaw, outfielders Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig, general manager Ned Colletti, and many others. Her narrative is packed with little-known stories and previously unreported revelations, including:
How Knight was at the Dallas home of Kershaw, the best pitcher in the game, when he learned that the $215 million contract that would bind him to the Dodgers was official—the richest contact any pitcher ever signed.
What the Dodgers actually knew in advance about rookie phenom and Cuban defector Puig, how he went from being an unknown to the game's most talked about player in a matter of months, and the circus surrounding his roller-coaster rookie season, from his being pursued by a drug cartel to his relationship with a coach's daughter.
Details about the constant infighting that almost derailed the team’s 2013 season, including how Kemp and Puig nearly came to blows several times, how Zack Greinke threw Puig's suitcase off the bus onto Michigan Avenue during a road trip to Chicago, and more.
Public opposition to Iran nuclear "deal" intensifying; Cloward-Pivening legal immigration; Rand Paul: "I'm the one candidate who considers Obama a warmonger"; Obama Navy to prosecute Chattanooga defender for the crime of shooting back; Obama State Department covered up Cuban, ChiComm atrocities; Democrats, as expected, kill GOP Planned Parenthood defunding; Hillary Clinton fading with core constituencies; and this week's double-feature: Planned Parenthood Cannibalism V: "Line Item Babies and The Wrath of Judge Orrick.

Hr1 Retired Military General Paul Vallely says IRAN already has nukes and can launch them! And a few more bombshells!
Inside WashDC scoop is that Joe Biden will replace Hillary Clinton as chosen one.
Mitch McConnell & John Boehner say GOP will stay on sidelines until new President. How do we win if we don't fight?
Did you hear about Stop Iran rally in NY last week? Over 12k people in Times Square. MSM coverage = dismal.
Every North Korean missile launch has been conducted in conjunction w/ Iran w/ assists from Russia & China.
Planned Parenthood needs to go! How do you deliver a human liver if it doesn't come out of a human?
Hr2 Nancy Pelosi addresses the Planned Parenthood expose videos...
She says no need to investigate Planned Parenthood, they've done nothing illegal. So it shouldn't be a problem to investigate them. Nothing to find, right?
Mark Cuban on Donald Trump...
Woman sues employer for 40 weeks maternity leave after adopting a puppy.
Quick pass over some recently received Obama conspiracy emails...
Hr3 Anti-American Rutgers professor protests Condoleeza Rice & says don't blame Hamas for Israel conflict.
She could be teaching your kids.
Court rules against right-to-die forcing a woman to die a slow painful death. Was ruling right or wrong?
Connecticut Democrats dump Thomas Jefferson. Wiping out history.
We will cover millenial tattoos. Obama using the Turks to kill the Kurds. Pretending he is fighting Icelets. Those communist words still ring in my ears. After I win reinfection I will do more for you Massa Putin. We will cober operation fly on wall. We will threaten Quisling who vote for Iranian nukes withn exposure and charges of treason.We will pay a tribute to American Indians. We will salute straight arrow scouts and laugh about the ones that give you the quivers. WE WILL THINK ABOUT THE COMMUNIST MANIPULATION OF THE BLACK MOVEMENT. We will cover the sucess of rich communists who use the poor to take down the great USA..
Why smaller government is safer for the people.Why no one talks about the Obama doesn't care health website that cost five billion dollars and the money went to Canada and the site crashed. He could have been up and running in twenty minutes with GO DADDY at $9.95 a month. The only shovel ready jobs he created was burting 2400 Americans from Afghanistan and four from Benghazi. Now he is tellin Africa to go gay and get more aids.
He makes major announcements on the Jon The Monkey show from communist comedy central. Al Sharpton is running nothing but communists NBC and they are afraid to fire him because he will drop the Race Ace on them..
Other than that you are losing your country and you will never get it back. the good news is the best wed will be coming in from Cuba.. Obama has opened up new trade routes.to your basement.

Get in the game this Tuesday evening at 7 pm, with the "Frat Boys" Nick, Sean & Caleb; they're running the bases in a truly unique edition of Frat House Sports' Clean-Up Hitters #20.
Tick, tock, tick, tock...the countdown to the MLB Trade Deadline is fast approaching and the results have been a flurry of activity in both the rumor and franchise markets. The guys will be discussing the fact and fiction surrounding Cole Hamels, Yasiel Puig, Johnny Cueto...Chase Utley? Seriously? It's a "buyers' market" and maybe a "fire sale" all over the baseball landscape with just 3 days left!
On Sunday the MLB Hall of Fame recognized 4 new inductees and the guys are offering up their impressions of one of the most electric (and eclectic) "class" in the Hall's history. Plus, man-oh-man...Commissioner Rob Manfred recently commented on "hot-button" issues including: pushing back the trade deadline, how the league anticipates more Cuban inclusion (expansion?) and his "pending" meeting with Pete Rose.
Of course, a look at the (meaningless?) "power rankings" and the (meaningful !) scores/standings from Caleb's Sports Machine is on-deck; a surprise or 2, and the popular weekly Series Streak Challenge has to be updated...who is that in the Lead there? Yep. The boys are in scoring position, so call in your thoughts LIVE to 347-826-9964 beginning at 7 pm (edt) !
Have you ever been thumbed so badly that you actually didn't get thumbed at all and Sergey Kovalev just knocked you out? That's what happened to Nadjib Mohammedi on HBO last weekend. But Jean Pascal winning a fun, albeit dubious decision over previously unbeaten Cuban Yunieski Gonzalez made up for it in terms of entertainment. That unanimous decision, though...
The real action, as everyone knows, will be on ESPN this Saturday. In the main event, Danny Garcia faces Paulie Malignaggi in his first official fight at welterweight. Courtesy of Premier Boxing Champions, of course. In the co-feature, Daniel Jacobs squares off against Sergio Mora -- yeah, the guy from The Contender -- for a belt and whatnot.
There were also fights in London that involved Billy Joe Saunders, Dereck Chisora and Frank Buglioni. Likely far more important was the signing of Gennady Golovkin vs David Lemieux, which might not be what everyone wants, but should be explosive anyway. Don't forget possible Floyd Mayweather vs Andre Berto news, possible Miguel Cotto vs Saul Alvarez news, and more.
And this week on Top Men Boxing Radio, Mike Baca of UCNlive joins the usual team of James Foley from Bad Left Hook, and The Fight City's Patrick Connor.
Thanks for tuning in!

We discuss Vicky's new series on The Road to Benghazi . Also, the Cuban Foreign Investment Act of 2014. Is this the reason why Obama announced his move toward rapprochement with the communist island nation?
