Podcast: Weaver, Halladay, Giambi
By David Schoenfield
What a day in baseball on Wednesday! Eric Karabell and myself could have done a two-hour Baseball Today podcast. Here are some highlights of a jam-packed show. Eric even tricked me into comparing Jose Altuve to Al Kaline and Alex Rodriguez. OK, maybe I did that to myself.
1. We discuss Jered Weaver's no-hitter, of course, and wonder how many more no-hitters we'll see this season.
2. We discuss that wild, improbable game in Atlanta between the Phillies and Braves. Are there reasons to be concerned about Roy Halladay?
3. That's only the tip of the iceberg of a crazy night -- bad calls, Jason Giambi's walk-off homer, Jake Arrieta dominating the Yankees and more.
4. We answer some emails about Mat Gamel's injury and other stuff.
5. Finally, we look ahead to Thursday's action and I declare that Jose Altuve is a batting title contender.
Check it all out on Thursday's Baseball Today podcast, and don't miss Friday's show with Mark Simon and awesome guests Jayson Stark and Tampa Bay Rays pitching coach Jim Hickey.
