Baseball league, part of Major League Baseball
Chet Lemon was known as one of the best defensive center fielders in baseball from 1977 to 1987. In 1977, he led the American League with 512 outfield putouts, the fourth highest single-season tally in major league history and the highest tally since 1951. He also totaled over 400 outfield putouts in four other years (1979 and 1983-1985). He also led the American League with 44 doubles in 1979 and led the league in times hit by pitch (HBP) four times, including a career-high 20 HBP in 1983. Lemon was sometimes criticized for not standing for "The Star-Spangled Banner" due to his religious beliefs as a member of the Jehovah's Witnesses.A native of Jackson, Mississippi, he grew up in Los Angeles. He was drafted in the first round of the 1972 Major League Baseball draft and played 16 seasons in Major League Baseball for the Chicago White Sox from 1975 to 1981 and for the Detroit Tigers from 1982 to 1990. He was selected as an American League All-Star in 1978, 1979, and 1984 and was the starting center fielder for the 1984 Detroit Tigers team that won the 1984 World Series.
Throughout the 2021 season, the White Sox appeared to be living up to the hype: an über-talented fun-loving juggernaut of a roster that was bludgeoning its way through the American League. It felt like they were taking the next step in their development as a genuine World Series contender as the calendar turned to October. Four games later, they gone. Friend of the pod Fritz Nothnagel is back to figure out what just happened and tell me how far the Sox really are from competing with a potential dynasty* like the Astros. *You know what this asterisk is for. We break down how Lance Lynn & the pitching staff fell apart against Houston's relentless lineup, the emergence of important role players like Leury García, and Tony La Russa's doddering bullpen management. Ultimately, though, Fritz still feels good about this season and where his team is headed in the future--as well he should! Plus: an update on my gay kickball adventures!

We react to a shocking series of events that led to the Red Sox eliminating the Rays, who finished the season with the American League's best record, in just four games (1:00). Then, we discuss a tense Game 3 between the Dodgers and Giants, who look to be as evenly-matched a pair of teams as we've seen in the playoffs in quite some time (17:00). Finally, we wonder whether the White Sox have the fire power to flip the script on the Astros (23:00), and admit we underrated how much of a problem the Brewers subpar offense would be come playoff time (32:00).

On this week's episode we're recapping a wild final weekend in the Major Leagues which came down to the final day of the season to determine the 2 wildcard teams in the American League and the NL West division winner. We take a look back at our preseason predictions and give our playoff picks for this year. We then take a look at what went down in week 4 of the NFL Season where we saw the Jets beat the Titans in OT, the Cowboys outlast the Panthers, the Cardinals stay undefeated with an impressive win over the Rams, Tom's return to Foxborough. Urban Meyer is trying to keep the Jags relevant despite 0-4 start and we take a look at the remaining winless and we see who survived week 4 in the survivor pool. We take a look back at a historic season in the Big Brother house and we finally know how it all played out in our big brother pool. Hosk has lots of stuff to talk about including the WWE Draft and all the stupidity that comes along with the WWE these days, as well as we discuss the second episode of Survivor Season 41, and see who loses a player in our fantasy game. To close the show Jones takes us through another segment of The Grill where we answer some questions about who the Jays should prioritize in the off-season - Robbie Ray or Marcus Semien, will Urban Meyer be the Jags coach week 1 next year? and who is the NFL MVP frontrunner?

https://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/mlb/tigers/2021/10/05/not-spending-like-drunken-sailor-but-detroit-tigers-have-ambitious-offseason-plan/6004563001/ Might that scene play out this winter with one of the high-priced shortstops on the market — Carlos Correa or Trevor Story or Marcus Semien — seated between them?“Just the fact that it's possible, I think, means we're in a really good place on this date and time,” Hinch said.But here's the reality of where the Tigers are on this date and time: While it is encouraging they have the resources and the will to shop for high-end talent this offseason, putting all their resources into buying a $30-$40 million a year shortstop might not be prudent.“It's more broad-based than that,” Avila said. “One player is not going to determine everything. I think we have several needs that we need to tackle in the offseason.Avila talked about pursuing a proven, veteran starting pitcher and catcher in free agency, as well as trying to upgrade at shortstop.“Pitching is very important,” Avila said. “We've established three young starters (Casey Mize, Tarik Skubal and Matt Manning), but because of injuries, it's set us back a little bit. The injury to Spencer Turnbull is devastating, really.“And the injury to Matt Boyd, there's a decision looming there now going into the offseason.”“The resources will be there,” Avila said. “But I will caution you, this is not going to be spending like a drunken sailor. This is going to be a very measured process. We're going to make sure whatever decisions we make free agent-wise don't sink the organization for years to come. We want it to help the organization for years to come.” Avila, from 2015 through 2020, shred some $200 million off the payroll. Miguel Cabrera, who is owed $32 million each of the next two seasons, is the last remaining oversized contract on the books. They have salary commitments to just two other players for next season — $7.5 million to Jonathan Schoop and $5 million to Robbie Grossman.If want to pick one player who was emblematic of the Tigers' turnaround in 2021, pick Grossman. He signed a two-year, $10 million contract last winter and produced a career-year at age 31.On a team that had ranked at or near the bottom of the league in walks and chasing pitches out of the strike zone, Grossman was a season-long object lesson in taking professional at-bats.He walked 98 times, second-most in the American League.On a team that was trying to establish a culture of aggressive play, Grossman produced just the seventh 20-20 season in club history — 20 homers, 20 stolen bases.
When the Houston Astros host the Chicago White Sox this afternoon in Game 1 of the ALDS, they will remain, to many, as one thing: the most hated team in baseball. It's a stigma the Astros have carried for the past two seasons, ever since the cheating scandal from their 2017 World Series run came to light. But at the same time, the Astros have had a spectacular run of success. They've won their division title in four of the last five seasons, and have made the ALCS the past four seasons. This year, they finished with the second best record in the American League. The team's success has made Astros players defiant in the face of the public backlash. It's also made them intent on winning another World Series, hoping to rewrite their legacy as something more than just “the team that cheated.” Alden Gonzalez spent time with the Astros, and shares his reporting on their search for vindication in the eyes of the baseball world.

After a 162-game season (oof), it all comes down to this. 1. Should you need a little direction on which team to cheer for, how about selecting by their biggest celebrity fan? Here are the matchups so you can pick accordingly: AL (American League) Wild Card (Oct. 5): Boston Red Sox (Stephen King) vs. New York Yankees (Billy Crystal) * Red Sox were eliminated Tuesday night by the Yankees NL (National League) Wild Card (Oct. 6): Los Angeles Dodgers (Mila Kunis + Ashton Kutcher) vs. St. Louis Cardinals (Jon Hamm) AL Division Series (starts Oct. 7): Chicago White Sox (Barack Obama) vs. Houston Astros (Dan Rather) ALDS (Oct. 7): Tampa Bay Rays (Hulk Hogan) vs. winner of Red Sox/Yankees NLDS (Oct. 8): Atlanta Braves (Ludacris) vs. Milwaukee Brewers (Colin Kaepernick) NL Division Series (starts Oct. 8): San Francisco Giants (Metallica) vs. winner of Dodgers/Cardinals 2. A few of these playoff teams have strong traditions to tune into when you watch the game. The Astros have the train that goes back and forth after every home team home run. The Brewers have Bernie Brewer, the beloved mascot of the Milwaukee Brewers, who slides down a giant yellow slide above the outfield after every Brewers' home run. And the karaoke trend that you love goes sporty at a Red Sox game where fans sing "Sweet Caroline" just before the bottom of the eighth inning of every home game. 3. It's all about the Benjamins, and not everyone is spending it all to reach the playoffs. The Yankees have the second-highest payroll in baseball and the Rays have the fourth lowest in the league. Despite the over $135 million differential in salaries, the Rays still have the best record in the American League, which earns them home field advantage. 4. If you pick your team to cheer for based on their title drought, the playoffs are kind of a mixed bag. The Dodgers are the defending champions, and the Astros won a few years ago. Then there are the Rays, who haven't won in 23 years or the Brewers, who haven't taken home a championship in 53 years. The Rays are hoping to follow in the footsteps of the city's other professional sports teams that have won titles this year – the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (NFL – National Football League) and Lightning (NHL – National Hockey League). 5. If you want to talk shop with the best of them, here's one for you. MLB changed the composition of the baseball this season to reduce the number of home runs. That change has resulted in a record number of pitchers throwing no-hitters this season. Will that continue into the playoffs?

Brett Phillips is currently an outfielder with the Tampa Bay Rays. He was selected by the Houston Astros in the 6th round of the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft. Five years later, he made his MLB debut on June 5, 2017 with the Milwaukee Brewers. After two seasons with the Brewers, he was traded to Kansas City, where he spent three seasons. In August of 2020, he was once again traded to the Rays and found himself in a pennant race that ultimately saw Tampa win the American League championship. In October 2020, on the biggest stage at the World Series, Brett Phillips became a baseball hero. In Game 4 against the Dodgers, Phillips found himself at bat in the bottom of the 9th inning with 2 runners on and his team down 1 run. He would line a single to right field and ultimately both runners would score on the hit, giving the Rays a Game 4 World Series 8-7 win. Today on the podcast, we welcome back Brett Phillips to tell us about his World Series moment, why baseball is fun, how his faith in God leads to the joy that he brings each day on the field and what his MLB All-Star Game correspondent experience was like. --- Receive our 10-day Sports Spectrum Devotional written by professional athletes for FREE when you sign up for our Sports Spectrum Weekly Email Newsletter.
