Ep. 114 - The Dog Days Find 14 Teams Chasing 7 Playoff Bids
Show Notes

Several teams are chasing either a Central Division title or a wild card bid - this week we look at these teams and handicap the races for the 7 playoff spots not seemingly claimed by the two New Yorks, Houston, Atlanta and the Dodgers.

Check It Out:
Andrew  recommends "The Blacktounge Thief," a recent book by Christopher Buehlman.
Craig recommends a live performance of Eminem's "Lose Yourself," by the decorated Australian singer-songwriter Kasey Chambers.

Errata: The Red Sox (not the  Reds) had the 20-7 (not 20-6) stretch earlier in 2022. Randy Johnson was 10-1 with a 1.28 ERA in 11 starts for Houston 1998. Houston lost in the division series round. Justin Verlander was 5-0 with a 1.06 ERA in 5 starts for Houston in 2017. May 25 to August 23 is closer to three months, not four. Milwaukee beat the Dodgers 4-0 on Monday, August 22, 2022.
