MLB: Trying to avoid a nightmare start - Injuries are starting to pile up (4/8)

Nothing Personal with David Samson


Today’s word of the day is ‘nightmare’ as in it all feels like a dream after you make it through spring training but then the first week of Opening Day comes and goes and your team is hurt, and losing, and bad, and it’s a nightmare. What is happening with Aaron Judge and the Yankees? Aaron Boone said he’s sore and will get the day off. It’s kind of early for this. Mookie Betts, Cody Bellinger, George Springer, Fernando Tatis, Trevor Rosenthal… more and more injuries are happening. (11:43) What can you make of first week performances? We’ve got teams that are overachieving early and teams that are underachieving right now. (16:27) Did MLB change the baseballs? Are they dead? Are they live? Where do we stand on the issue? (18:29) NPPOD. (20:11) Tiger Woods is lucky to be alive. It wasn’t drug abuse. It wasn’t alcohol. His crash was caused by his reckless driving. (27:06) The Masters started today. Fred Ridley is the chairman of the Masters and he released a statement on the Georgia voting laws. (35:48) Review: Collective. (36:57) Hubert Davis was named head coach at North Carolina. What was so significant about this? He became the 3rd head coach in program history, but the first African-American. What he said was very telling.
