WRSP Radio presents the 48th episode of the second season of Weekend Sports Huddle with co-hosts Tom Pollin, Hunter Hodies and producer Dave Holcomb.
Hunter won't be on the show this week but Tom and Dave still have plenty of talk to entertain you on today's show. To open we'll give the post-mortem to the Pittsburgh Penguins season after their loss in six games to the Washington Capitals. We'll break down what went wrong in games five and six and talk about the fan reaction to the loss. We'll also compare the fan's reaction to how Blackhawks fans reacted in 2013 after losing the Western Conference finals in overtime to the Los Angeles Kings. Also, is the window still open for another Stanley Cup run or is it time to retool.
After that we'll dive headfirst into baseball conversation. Andrew McCutchen received a standing ovation in his return to Pittsburgh last night. Those fans were rewarded with a double in five at-bats and an 11-2 victory by the Pirates. After that we'll move to Chicago where the Cubs are taking on the White Sox this weekend at Wrigley Field. The White Sox are attempting to take the same road to postseason success that the Cubs did, and finding that road just as bumpy. The Cubs dropped them by their own 11-2 score last night. They're also dealing with another Yu Darvish adventure that we'll discuss.
We'll break it all down and we want to make you apart of the show. Call in at 517-387-1417 or tweet us @wkdsportshuddle.
