The 2008 Baseball season is still in its infancy, but the early storylines are as compelling as ever. Do the Mets have reason to be concerned with their slow start? Will the Yankee offense come alive even without Derek Jeter? Why do so many division standings appear to be upside down? We’ll cover all of this plus our first Series of the Week segment in which we’ll preview the upcoming week’s most intriguing series. And of course, what is a baseball show without a look into the latest Fantasy studs, duds and sleepers.
And while our primary focus always lies with the boys of summer, stories from around the entire sports world remain on our radar screens as well. It is with that in mind that we are proud to bring on this week’s show defensive linmen Tank Tyler and Turk McBride of the Kansas City Chiefs. Tank and Turk were featured prominently in the HBO hit series Hard Knocks and will be with us to break down the upcoming NFL Draft.
