‘Red Light Sports Ramble’ ~ Chris Paul fractures hand which could mean the end of the Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers have been overshadowed all year, especially when superstart Blake Griffin went down with an injury. Griffin returned at the end of the season, and had enough games to get into game shape. With his return, the Clippers had a legitimate chance to play with the likes of the Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs, and Oklahoma City Thunder because they had an outside shooting game, and a presence in the front court. That was before Chris Paul broke a bone in his hand. With Paul out, who will step up and replace the 28 points, 8 assists, and nearly 50% shooting per game? The question now becomes, can they even get by the Portland Trailblazers in the first round? The series is tied at two games each, and the Clippers season may have been broken just like Pauls’ right hand. Listen in and call the show with your thoughts.

‘Red Light Sports Ramble’ ~ Countdown to the NFL draft and the recap a wild Sunday in MLB

The MLB season may only be a few weeks old, but Sunday provided some fantastic comebacks and amazing finishes. If you are a fan of pitching, Sunday was not the day for you to enjoy baseball. If you like home runs and extra base hits, there were more than enough to go around on Sunday afternoon. The Pittsburgh Pirates held an 8-4 advantage heading into the eigth inning. Tony Watson and Mark Melancon are suppose a dominate 1-2 punch at the end of the game. The duo gave up four runs and the game headed to extra innings. Both teams exhuasted their bench players and needed to use starting pitchers as pinch-hitters. The Pirates scored twice, in the top of the 12th, and it looked like they were headed to victory. However, the Diamondbacks tied the game with two runs of their own in the bottom of the inning. Tonights starter Zack Greinke singled in the inning, and was replaced by starting pithcer Shelby Miller, as a pinch runner. Miller stayed in the game to play left field. This might have proved costly as Sean Rodriguez drilled a ball over Miller for a double. The Pirates went on to score twice for a 12-10 win. Listen in and call the show with your thoughts on the NFL Draft or some of the crazy games yesterday.

‘Red Light Sports Ramble’ ~ Hitters or pitchers, who has advantage in April? Jake Arrieta tosses no-hitter

Spring training is an exciting time, teams are shaping rosters and fans are excited to get to the ballpark. The majority of the teams rosters are set, and spring training is a time to get the younger minor league players some work to see if what role they may serve the organization. This means that the veterans may see limited at-bats early in spring training, and only play a few full games late in spring training. Is this a good regiment to get their timing down? Do they feel comfortable at the plate when the season starts?

Jake Arrieta tossed the first no-hitter of the 2016 MLB season, and he was not impressed with himself. He mentioned that he just gutted it out, but didn’t feel that the timing was right. So if a pitcher can dominate 27 plate appearences without his good stuff, are the hitters still trying to find their groove? Pitchers are in the same situation early in the season. They are trying to find that third pitch, and get their control down. So who really has the advantage in April? LIsten in and call the show with your thoughts?
