Crowding the Plate Podcast Episode 56: 2017 Trade Deadline Review

The 2017 Trade Deadline has come and gone and the Los Angeles Dodgers became the best team in baseball... even more than they already were. They landed Yu Darvish to aid their chances at cruising to a World Series title. On the other coast, the New York Yankees grabbed Sony Gray from the Oakland A's as they look to surpass the Red Sox atop the AL East.

Which of these teams won more than the other and were there any other deadline winners or losers? Joe Hojnacki and Greg Hessen discuss.

Also, Greg wants to complain about the Tigers putting Justin Verlander on waivers.


OTPP: NHL Off-Season

Last Word on Sports is proud to present their hockey podcast, On the Power Play with Ben and Dave. Join Ben Kerr and Dave Gove each week as they take a look around the Hockey World focusing on the big issues of the NHL and elsewhere.

OTPP: NHL Off-Season Review

Today on On The Powerplay, we look at the best and worst teams this NHL off-season.

Advanced stats suggest the Carolina Hurricanes had the best off-season. What are the Hurricanes getting and what does it mean? Can Scott Darling solve the goaltending issues?

The Dallas Stars had big pick-ups. Does Ben Bishop fix their goaltending? Where do Alexander Radulov and Martin Hanzal fit? Can Marc Methot shore up the defence or is more needed.

The Washington Capitals took major hits this off-season. How good will they be without Kevin Shattenkirk, Karl Alzner, Nate Schmidt, Marcus Johansson, and Justin Williams?

Can the Chicago Blackhawks recover from their losses, especially on the blue-line?

The New York Rangers upgraded the blue line, but down graded up front. What does it mean?

What is Marc Bergevin doing for the Montreal Canadiens?

Does Patrick Marleau improve the Toronto Maple Leafs? How much? What is going on with their cap?


All this and more as we go On the Power Play.


Crowding the Plate Episode 55: The Justin Verlander Trade Market

The Dodgers got the bad news about Clayton Kershaw's back the other day. With their superstar pitcher out for the next six to eight weeks,are they looking to complete a Justin Verlander trade with the Tigers? Stephen Strasburg also hurt his forearm. Does this open up a possible Sonny Gray to the Nationals story? What about Yu Darvish? Why are the Rangers trading him? Joe Hojnacki and Greg Hessen discuss those possibilities.


Crowding the Plate Podcast Episode 54: 2017 Trade Deadline Primer

With the 2017 Trade Deadline creeping ever closer, Joe Hojnacki and Greg Hessen try to decide which teams are selling which players for which prospects from which teams that should be buyers. Before that gets cleared up, Greg gives his review of the All-Star Game and Joe tries to decide if it was worth missing for the third season in a row.

The trade deadline discussion also devolves into a rant about how sports media are often very team friendly when assessing the quality of a contract. Sure, Victor Martinez has a terrible deal as far as the Tigers front office is concerned, but isn't it a great deal for Martinez himself? Anyway, it's a rant worth listening to.

Crowding the Plate Podcast Episode 53: 2017 Home Run Derby and the Half Way Point

The MLB season has reached its actual half way mark, even if the official start of the second half isn't until after next week's All Star Game. With that in mind, Joe Hojnacki and Greg Hessen pick out their favorite moments from the first half of the season.

They also take on the Logan Morrison vs. Gary Sanchez home run derby beef and ask the question of whether or not it really matters who is in the derby? I mean, Ichiro says he can hit a bomb whenever he wants and he's never been part of the field. Plus, is there any reason not to pick Aaron Judge to win it?
