SEGMENT 1 – Show Open: Them Indiana Pacers take the Miami Heat down over the weekend, Doug cheering for Blues rivals in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, just being here should show enough interest, tough one for the Cardinals as the Atlanta Braves come back in the ninth, lots of things to point at when breaking down one of the more disappointing losses of the season, the bullpen being stretched pointing to mismanagement, opposite reactions on a take by The Cat, thoughts on the Redbird’s offense, learning the word “bay” as a texter used the word “bayed”, too many apologists on this presentation, the @PeoriaPlowBoy was t-boned over the weekend by some woman that drove off but left her liscence plate at scene, Tony La Russa probably the most interview person ever in baseball history, a picture of Doug made the projection screen at a trivia night over the weekend, Willie sold at an auction over the weekend for charity & hello again from Mike Lee who’s cheating on us and Penny.
SEGMENT 2 – Shhhh…, love that Grassi’s, Doug wants to hear from alienating Rich, Willie does not have audio with Billy Bob Thornton discussing the Cardinals ready, the worst audio ever, reaction from the texters, problem with using the phrase ‘big man’ & hello to new intern Shawn Campbell who wears a bow tie.
SEGMENT 3 – Joe Strauss: Read on Trevor Rosenthal being used for a fourth straight game, hindsight obviously easier at this point, if Carlos Martinez is backing Rosenthal then wondering why he did not start the ninth on Sunday, hitting concerns still not going anywhere, the lack of power seen from the lineup, interleague play ought to change the makeup of the Redbird’s lineup, shifting to the Michael Sam story in which OWN has postponded their docu-series with the openly gay Rams rookie, there was an internal negative reaction to the series announcement last week & media access with Sam will be interesting to monitor moving forward.
SEGMENT 4 – Clay Travis & Randy Choate: Interesting reaction especially from Deadspin on his article “Actions Matter More Than Words…Unless You’re On the Internet”, pitchfork media constantly looking for hero/villian dynamic within polarizing stories, those who like to accuse others of being racist or prejudiced, believes that ‘extremes’ sell especially when it comes to anonymous tough social media users, Internet suppose to be open market of ideas, do not understand why there’s a rush to presume racism, context certainly lost in social media, reputations and careers can be destroyed via Twitter or social media, Doug really warns listeners about the dangers of saying whatever you want, texters weigh in, Doug reading out full numbers now, hot passionate takes on this once great country, hello to Randy, he agree with Doug’s take, does feel for Trevor Rosenthal in the tough situation, wondering if there’s pre-game process to determine who’s ready and who’s not, his role as a mentor in the bullpen, thoughts on Jason Motte coming back to the bullpen & Randy loves the show.
