    Ep. 143: Previewing the ALCS between Houston and Boston

    The ALCS is here! The Chron’s Hunter Atkins joins Austin on the phone line to breakdown this historic series between the Astros and Red Sox. How historic is it? This is the first postseason series since World War II that features to teams that won more than 103 regular season games.

    The guys discuss the key matchups on the mound and why the Astros’ hitters will work to extend at-bats in order to jump into a Boston bullpen that has played “Naked and Afraid” this postseason. Then, Hunter offers his take that David Price is “teetering on the edge of a sunk cost” and why he matches up poorly against Gerrit Cole.

    The show closes by analyzing the offense and x-factors in the series, and why the Astros should refuse to pitch to MVP-candidate J. D. Martinez.

Consistently Entertaining

As an avid listener of sports radio 610, this podcast was a pleasant surprise. With topics that cover both national and Houston specific stories, the team provides honest and informative opinions in the sports world.

It gives me a pocket version of 610 with its countless number of high profile guests and influential journalists. As an aspiring storyteller this show gives food for thought and is downright fun to listen to.
