For the first time ever, Jack welcomes Orestes Destrade AND Albert Destrade BOTH to the show, to recap ALDS and NLDS, and preview the ALCS and NLCS! Orestes just completed his 12th season broadcasting Tampa Bay Rays' games on Bally Sports. Previously, he played 15 years of professional baseball and he worked at ESPN for five years as an analyst on Baseball Tonight, the Little League World Series and the World Baseball Classic. His nephew Albert played college baseball and finished third on the 23rd season of Survivor, Survivor: South Pacific. Jack, Orestes and Albert weigh in on the first leg of the MLB postseason, where the Rays came up short to the Boston Red Sox in four games, the Atlanta Braves took out the Milwaukee Brewers in four games, the Houston Astros rolled the Chicago White Sox in four games, and the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants went the distance, with the Dodgers edging out their NL West foe late in Game 5. The trio shares their thoughts on the Division Series and AL and NL Wild Card games, the latest MLB news (including the Cardinals firing manager Mike Shildt), what changes they would make to MLB's current postseason format, replay review's place in the sport and many other entertaining detours along the way, including stories from Orestes' playing career. Later, they preview the upcoming ALCS and NLCS matchups between the Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros, and the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers. What are the keys to victory in order for each to advance to the World Series, and who does each guy have facing off in the Fall Classic in ten days? Tune in to find out!

1) We talk about some news of the day including the firing of one of the most successful managers in baseball over the last three years. 2) Time to talk about George Hendrick, one of the players the Indians got for Ray Fosse. He is a true original who still works for the Rays. He defended one of the first female journalists covering baseball in the 70s, the first player to wear his pant legs down to his ankle, and the first to hit 100 home runs in both leagues. This is just the beginning of the story for a fascinating figure from the 70s. 3) We talk about potential baseball sleeper Drew Ellis and his fellow Dbacks prospect Alek Thomas who I thought for sure was on his way to the Indians back in 2018.

He played baseball at Iowa St. and made the last out at their home stadium as the baseball program was cut shortly after...
