SEGMENT 1 – Show Open: Was busy writing a column, numbers from the Cardinals over the recent seasons just after beginning of September really indentifies this era as one of the all-time best in the rich franchise history, looking good taking sole possession of first place, the word on Michael Wacha plus moving Justin Masterson to the bullpen, The Cat hearing that the Birds are leaning towards Marco Gonzalez to fill the rotation, Tyler Lyons looking good too, big night for Draft Day in which someone could win $50,000, going in together to ship some cash money…, looking at the past week of ups and downs for the Cards, biggest difference has been the hot streak of Matt Holliday, apparently Doug is now all for letting technology call balls and strikes, the Rams cutting Michael Sam, real surprise he did not make practice squad, confusion with Picks from Friday, Willie getting mad because he did not take the spread into account, now we have the correct numbers & quick thoughts on Mizzou.
SEGMENT 2 – Gabe DeArmond: Thoughts on the Kansas City Royals, the complaints from Ned Yost about attendance, 20 years of futility, moving to the Mizzou game, expectation for Maty Mauk were a tad high (like Chase Daniel his junior year…), how Mauk and the offense can improve by next week, Gabe does not understand Mizzou playing at Toledo, lost Gabe there…, either schedule four automatic wins or at least someone who will not penalize you when considering the bigger picture, viewing the SEC after the opening week, not a fan of “The Bachelor”, the games we did and did not enjoy over the weekend & trying to get a read on the contenders and pretenders.
SEGMENT 3 – Derrick Goold: Excited to get Larry Nickel’s thoughts on Michael Sam getting an invitation to WWE Raw next week, hello Derrick, odd trends that have taken over especially within the NL, the weekend that was for the Cardinals, hoping that Adam Wainwright will be Adam Wainwright as the Redbirds move on with the Pittsburgh Pirates, nice to Trevor Rosenthal get a solid save showing some more breaking balls, possible starting rotation plans moving forward especially since Justin Masterson has been moved to the bullpen, Derrick also hearing the Birds like Marco Gonzalez to take the rotation spot, nobody tell Marco…, listeners that were holding only dial tones…, back to the phone lines, do not see the Rams receiving scrutiny for cutting Michael Sam, mostly surprising he did not make a practice team for any team, Peter King reports that a few GMs did not want the (media) circus to come to town, we’re certain Sam is on a roster had he not come out before the NFL Draft & someone is looking to hack Doug’d iCloud after those celebrities.
SEGMENT 4 – WWE Recap, Ross Tucker & Email of the Day: Time to breakdown last night’s Raw, those Bella twins still sideways with each other, Larry explains the iCloud to Doug, having nude pics on social media, finding beauty in another hetero man…, sharing a sleeping bag, sisters fighting each other, Stephanie McMahon inviting Michael Sam to WWE Raw next week, Larry has not been working the phones in regards to Mike Sam reports, top fives countries (one is usually just a city…), Mexico cracking the list, the prince and king of misinformation at it again, hello to Ross, level of surprise keeps going as Michael Sam does not make any roster, thought that Sam did enough to at least make someone’s practice squad, wondering what these teams may not like about the football player, likes how he does use his hands getting to the QB but lacks speed generally needed, wondering how things may pan out for him moving forward, the media coverage being too much of a distraction, predictions seems to be quite consistent heading into Week 1, only about five teams he sees right now that could probably win the Super Bowl, thoughts on the Rams going with Shaun Hill into the season, looking back at the Rams not picking up a QB higher in the draft, thoughts on Greg Robinson struggling during training camp and the preseason, going back to the Michael Sam debate regarding a practice squad player getting too much attention, story from a local perspective is more Sam Bradford comapred to national perspective, had much less of a project with Jake Matthews than Robinson, quite the weekend trip to Six Flags, some random kid Jacob got mucas all over the roller coaster & the difference between a hoosier and hill person.
