HOUR 4 - In the final hour of the show, we put a bow on the LeBron James "injury" from Monday night, take a call from a listener who is sick of "show-on-show" drama, play Kirk ripping Keefe in it's entirety, and expose Chad Finn for being a 98.5 fanboy who wouldn't address Pete Abe in his Friday chat.
HOUR 3 - In hour 3, the guys discuss a column by Dan Graziano and another by Bomani Jones about WHY Colin Kaepernick is "blackballed" by the NFL. Graziano reports that Kaepernick is seeking "$9-10M per year" which is roughly what a bottom-end starting QB would get paid. They also get into the Raiders moving to Vegas, and some potential problems that could arise.
HOUR 2 - In hour 2, we play Robert Kraft's nauseating interview with "First Take" and point out that Max Kellerman pusses out after being highly critical of Tom Brady over the past few years. The guys also get into some of Robert Kraft's comments from Monday, where Kraft said that Brady told him he'd like to play for 6-7 more years.
HOUR 1 - Glenn, Lou and Christian talk about the morning show, the Cavs getting embarrassed by the Spurs, the Celtics chances of winning the East, the importance of home-court advantage, Glenn's appearance on "Cheers" , and they address the "Whiner Line" which is currently on life support.

President Donald Trump’s first days in office have been anything but conventional. In addition to issuing two travel bans that have been struck down in the courts, he’s currently under FBI investigation for his ties to Russia. But next week, he may participate in an old presidential tradition.

According to POLITICO, Trump is in talks with the Nationals to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Nats Park on Opening Day next Monday. He would be the 19th president to handle the honor.

Given the divisiveness of his presidency, the Nationals would probably face backlash if they welcomed Trump to the ballpark. That appears to be the reason why the Orioles seem unwilling to invite Trump to a game this season.

“I know that the administration has taken a lot of criticism for its controversial positions,” John Angelos, son of Orioles owner Peter Angelos, said recently on the B-More Opinionated podcast. “I think more so perhaps for statements made both during the campaign and since the administration came in concerning things that are considered to be problematic from a race, ethnicity, religious, gender, disability. People in those communities have been spoken about very negatively by a candidate and now president.”

In addition to throwing out the first pitch, Trump could reportedly appear on the game broadcast afterwards. In December, Trump stopped by the booth during CBS’ telecast of Army-Navy. He took an apparent shot at both teams, saying he wasn’t sure if they were playing “necessarily the best football.”

  CBS SportsJose Canseco is back in baseball.

According to Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area, Canseco is joining NBC Sports California as an on-air analyst for their pre- and postgame coverage of the Oakland Athletics, one of his former teams.

From Stiglich: “I’ve got quite a bit of experience. I’ve pretty much been there, done all of that whether it’s on or off the field,” Canseco said. “I think the fans can expect the truth — an honest opinion, honest analysis — and hopefully in some shape or form we expand the fan base.”

“He’s enthused about taking on his first role as an analyst, and he joins NBC Sports California at a time of budding excitement surrounding the A’s and the expectation of them building a new ballpark in Oakland. Canseco, the 1986 AL Rookie of the Year, played for the A’s when they were one of the Bay Area’s hottest sports stories.”

Canseco has been mostly persona non grata around Major League Baseball since his book Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant ‘Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big was released in 2005. The book documented performance-enhancing drug use by both Canseco and several other big name players in the league.

On Twitter, Canseco has lobbied for managerial jobs and even chances to resume his playing career over the years. He hasn’t played in the big leagues since 2001, though the now 52-year-old Canseco has played in several independent leagues since 2006.

Canseco is part of NBC Sports California’s new analyst lineup of former Athletics players. Alex Rodriguez, another former star with PED ties, was recently hired as a full-time analyst by Fox .

Canseco hasn’t even started this job yet and I’m already sick of him.

He is a lunatic who will do literally anything for attention. This is a guy who pretended to lose a finger in a poker game and the saga became national news before he revealed it was a hoax. 

Yes, he will probably say some insane things on TV and will be more animated than traditional baseball analysts. But he is grasping for relevancy and that is a recipe for a pathetic performance on television. There’s a good chance he’ll say outrageous things for the sake of saying outrageous things.

Here is his series of tweets announcing his new job:

I hear the amount of free food the Media gets is insane .worried about Media Belly so please make my spreads heavy on the paleo — Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) March 27, 2017


My guess is he won’t last the whole season. But until then, viewers in California can look forward to his honesty and unpredictable nature.

He has never been one to hold back his opinion on anything:
