Memorial Day is a day for remembering fallen heroes, getting a sun burn, barbecuing and talking baseball. And “The Pitch” checks off one of them for you in its Monday edition, taking issue with the absence of Carlos Quentin’s name on the All-Star ballot despite his leading the AL in home runs and carrying the White Sox on his back.
The show also covers the over-hyped saga of Willie Randolph in New York following a week of speculation, meetings and near-application submissions from former Mets.
Along with the latest round of “The Pick-Off,” hosts Joe Aiello and Brandon Rosage review DL stints by Fausto Carmona and Andruw Jones. And Ichiro shares another gem through his interpreter regarding his favorite pastime had he not signed with the Mariners.
Listener e-mails, phone calls and more are all fair game in the Monday edition of The Pitch’s Week 9 coverage of the 2008 MLB season. Enjoy and interact via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 360-450-MVN3.
