On this edition of From the Diamond, Grant and Caleb kick off the show as they do every show by recapping what was this Week in Braves Baseball. The guys discuss what the Braves have coming up down the final stretch of the season, the Braves losing four out of five on their latest road trip, the Cubs sweeping the Mets being a big help to the Braves, Ozzie Albies returning to the lineup last night after fracturing his foot in June, and the the Grant and Caleb close out the segment by explaining why the Braves' comeback win last night was exactly what the Braves and the Braves' offense needed. Next, Grant and Caleb continue hour one by continuing their recap of what happened this week in Braves Baseball. The guys discuss Ronald Acuña Jr. returning to right field after Ronald spent a lot of time at DH to help heal up his sore knee, why having both Ronald Acuña Jr. and Ozzie Albies back in the field and in the lineup is a big deal. Grant and Caleb also discuss why this entire Braves lineup needs to get going, more specifically Austin Riley and Matt Olson. Finally, the guys close out the segment by discussing Michael Harris II continuing to get better as the season goes along, the amazing season William Contreras has put together, and why the Braves have the best pair of catchers on the offensive end. Finally, to close out hour one on this edition of From The Diamond, Grant and Caleb finish recapping what happened this week in Braves baseball by discussing what almost was Raisel Iglesias getting the save opportunity over Kenley Jansen before the Braves offense blew the game open in the bottom of the eighth. Grant and Caleb also discuss the Braves losing Kirby Yates for at least two weeks due to elbow inflammation, the Braves having options besides Jake Odorizzi if they so choose, and some not so great news on the farm as Mike Soroka gives up three home runs in five innings during his rehab start on Friday, and Ian Anderson being done for the season as he suffered a strained oblique down in Gwinnett with the Stripers. To kick off hour two of this edition of From the Diamond, Caleb and Grant go around the big Leagues. Grant and Caleb start in the National League and discuss the Mets struggling in the month of September as they have been dealing with some injuries, the Braves continuing to try and take over the NL East, and the Phillies trying to make that hard for the Braves. In the NL Central Caleb and Grant discuss the St.Louis Cardinals' second half surge that's given them a seven and a half game division lead over the Milwaukee Brewers going into the final two and a half weeks into the season. Finally, Grant and Caleb wrap up their National League report in the NL West. Grant and Caleb discuss the Dodgers already clinching the division, and with the best record in baseball are looking like they will earn a first round bye in the MLB postseason and won't have to participate in a best of three Wild Card series. Grant and Caleb close out this edition of From the Diamond by continuing their look around the big leagues, and this time around they focus on the American League. In the AL East, Grant and Caleb discuss the Yankees trying to avoid a colossal second half meltdown as they try to hold on to their five and a half game lead in the AL East and perhaps save the job of their Manager and General Manager. In the AL Central, Grant and Caleb discuss the Cleveland Guardians taking over the top spot in the division due to the Minnesota Twins sliding in September to the point where they are now in third place after the Chicago White Sox passed them for second place as well. Caleb and Grant also discuss the Wild Card not being a postseason option for any of the AL Central ball clubs as well. Finally, Grant and Caleb close out their American League report in the AL West. Caleb and Grant discuss The Astros getting Justin Verlander back on Friday and clinching a playoff berth as they continue on another winning streak, and shrink their magic number to clinch the AL West to just five. Grant and Caleb close out the segment and the show by discussing what's ahead for the Atlanta Braves.

Joe Rizzo brings you baseball (now for a year!). Riz & "The Dawg" Jeff Healy brought the show over the one-year threshold as they welcomed in frequent co-host/guest Jerry Milani to celebrate the memorable moments from Year One of Diamond Diehards. If you're new to us, find out the backstories of how the show began and get some insight into the backgrounds of Riz, Dawg and Jerry, who have known one another for over 30 years (that means they've been friends for longer than most other podcasters have been alive ;-). This was not just a trip down (recent) memory lane, as Riz, Dawg and Jerry discussed the ramifications of injuries to White Sox OF Eloy Jimenez, closer Kirby Yates and CF George Springer of the Blue Jays, and Yankees 1B Luke Voit. There was some talk about a possible MLB misstep by not bringing enough televised content from Spring Training, and a quick preview of the upcoming Strat-O-Matic Elite Media Experts League Finals, between Riz (Cardinals) and Sportchie.com guru and MLB Network contributor Joe Lemire (Red Sox). In fact, Lemire is going to be on an upcoming show to discuss the Strat league and share his wealth of baseball knowledge! Our social media pal and teen baseball phenom Lillian Martineau aced her tryout and made the JV baseball team at her high school, so there was a pause for celebration of this inspiring young athlete. And the guys wished former Orioles closer Gregg Olson a healthy recovery from prostate cancer. Dawg got things going with Veteran of the Day. It was Dr Mary Walker, the only female Medal of Honor recipient in US history. Please check out our sponsor, FMS Graphics (https://www.fmsgraphics.com), for all print and promotional needs.

Today’s word of the day is ‘left field’ as in not right field as in not center field as in the outfield as in Eloy Jimenez of the Chicago White Sox is out for what could be the whole season after tearing his pec making a play in a spring training game. Every White Sox fan knew this was inevitable, but management still put Eloy out there. What were the Sox trying to prove? (15:29) Kirby Yates is done for the year that hasn’t even started yet. He got $5.5M guaranteed by the Toronto Blue Jays AFTER the Atlanta Braves pulled an offer for a failed physical. Yates signs with the Jays and is now out for the season. Wow. (23:45) Review: Justice League Snyder Cut… yes I watched all four hours. (31:43) Did the Houston Astros just lowball and lose Carlos Correa? They might have. It was a six-year, $120M offer and Correa was offended. This is a MONSTER free agent offseason for shortstops. (40:50) NPPOD.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
