This week is Brewers‘ week with our podcast featuring the Milwaukee Brewers being released on Friday, September 30th. It’s been a great year for both the Brewers and Baseball PhD. Who could script the close of this exciting baseball regular season?
In the American League, the Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox are tied for the wild card position with one game to go. In the National League it’s the same with the Cardinals and Braves also tied for the wild card position with one game to go. Could the regular season be extended on Thursday with the 163rd game of the regular season?
While there still remains much uncertainty regarding these two final playoff spots, Professor Bruce Bukiet from the New Jersey Institute of Technology has again won our 2011 MLB Predictions Contest. Buiket successfully predicted that the Yankees, Tigers and Rangers would make the playoffs. Bukiet further predicted that the Red Sox, Braves and Cardinals would make the playoffs. Should the Red Sox make the playoffs, this would be the second year in a row that the Professor has successfully chosen all 4 American League Playoff teams. Ed Kasputis will interview and congratulate Professor Buiket for his learned predictions during our next podcast.
Can Professor Bukiet turn a triple play in 2012 …
… by using his head?
Our PhD Committee is in beautiful St. Louis as the Cardinals continue their charge for the final playoff spot in the National League. Ed Kasputis interviews Ben Humphrey form vivaelbirdos.com as they review the Cardinals 2011 season which turned out to be a “Tale of Three Cities.” Can the Atlanta Braves hang on with their 2 game lead with 6 games to go or will the Albert Pujols led Cardinals strive to make Tony La Russa proud? Our PhD Committee produces another great segment of 100 Places to See before they clean off the grill and head to our final Major League City of the year. It’s time to visit Miller Park and get ready for the post season. Go Brewers!
This week is Reds‘ week with our podcast featuring the National League Central Division Champs scheduled for release on Friday, April 8th. This will be our 50th podcast. Ed & Farley travelled down I-71 on Sunday, April 3rd to catch the Brewers taking on the Reds. The Reds won but is was an enjoyable day for other reasons. It was Bark in the Park Day at Great American Ballpark. Man’s best friend got to enjoy the confines of a beautiful ballpark and just a whiff away from the mighty Ohio River.
