LeBron James Played the Last Three Games With a “Broken” Hand

At least Michael Jordan wasn’t dumb enough to punch a wall. A teammate’s face is much more forgiving when airing out your frustrations with their play.

This is almost as bad as all of his flops, or Ben Roethlisberger showing up in a walking boot after a poor performance. We get it LeBron. You were mad at the refs and J.R. Smith and decided to throw a hissy fit and punched a wall. As a hat-tip to hockey, LeBron and the Cavs hid the injury and didn’t reveal that he had been playing injured for the last three games until after Golden State had finished popping bottles in the city that never sleeps, Cleveland. I wanted to type a joke about it being hard to sleep on park benches, but I’m too good of a guy to kick them while they’re down.  Continue reading

The Reds are shaking things up as they’ve decided to move Homer Bailey to the bullpen and pull Jesse Winker out of the regular outfield rotation.  While the Nati Boys agree that Bailey to the ‘pen is a good move, the Winker decision has us scratching our heads.  We talk about the dream matchup we have this year in the NBA finals, and we provide a quick update on the NHL finals as well.  Mac let’s us all know that he’s been wearing the same pair of socks for the past 6 months, and in honor of the city of Cincinnati getting an MLS franchise we wrap up the show with a fantasy draft of things that we just don’t care about.

Nati Boys #58: Wasting Time

img_3509-1

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!

Nati Boys #56: The Good Old Days

img_3509-1

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.
