Are the Reds good again? No. But they certainly played well on the west coast, which has the Nati Boys excited about baseball again. We discuss whether or not they’re starting to head in the right direction and speculate on the future of Scooter Gennett in light of the Robinson Cano suspension. The NBA and NHL playoffs are both in their conference championship rounds, and we all take a little bit of joy in the fact that the Cavs find themselves in a 2-0 hole to the Celtics. To wrap up the show, we give you a fantasy draft of our favorite ways to kill some time.
The Nati Boy’s break down the Matt Harvey/Devin Mesoraco trade between the Reds and Mets, and go off on a slight tangent about the night life scene in Cincinnati. Since we now have two “Batman’s” in the pitching rotation, our fantasy draft this week is of the best nicknames in sports. Enjoy the show!
It’s a downtime in the sports year for the Nati Boys with the Reds struggling, the Blue Jackets out of the playoffs and the Bengals season still several months away. We do our best to find some positives in the Reds season, like cheap tickets and specialty bobble head giveaways. We also talk a little more about the NFL draft and we mock the mock drafters and their lack of accuracy with their predictions. To wrap up the show we transition from sports misery to the misery of getting older as we do a fantasy draft of things we miss about being 17.
The NFL is finally back, with the Draft happening Thursday night. We break down the first round, and have a live reaction to hearing the Bengals selection at 21. Our fantasy draft this week is of “busts” in homage to those first round picks that don’t pan out the way we all think the will. Enjoy the show!
In a move that surprised absolutely nobody, the Reds have decided to move on from manager Bryan Price. The Nati Boys discuss the impact this move will have on the team and where we think the Reds will go from here. We also discuss the current state of the NBA and NHL playoffs. The Blue Jackets let the Capitals come back and tie the series after getting off to a 2-0 lead, which has Columbus fans starting to sweat. We wrap up the show with a fantasy draft of our favorite sports traditions and superstitions.
That’s right, we’re talking playoffs on this week’s episode, both NBA and NHL. We give you our picks for the Finals and break down who we think has the best shot to win it this year. With our inspiration being the Las Vegas Knights, our fantasy draft this week is of best debuts. Enjoy the show!
