so behind that e start in front of I'm not a whole team here.
Started from the bottom.
This is Drew Stall from the golden hour on.
We got a big show playing for you today.
We got a wildcard round recap segment for you, and then we got a divisional round preview for you.
This is all for the MLB playoffs that have been going on the playoffs started back on Tuesday, and we have had 16 playoff teams in action.
We're going to recap pretty much all of those games.
All those Siri's, they're gonna dio a little preview for you, Um, off the upcoming divisional round, Um, Siris in each league.
So let's start off with the wild card round.
And what I want to do is just show you guys some of the matchups that have been going on so far just to make sure that you all Yeah, have seen it.
Okay, so let's start out, um, with the Astros and with the twins.
So I'm just gonna pull something up real quick.
Um, just so that you can see them.
So let's see you got to get this going right there.
Okay? So I'm just gonna share the screens that you guys can't see everything there.
All right? That should be I'm going to the human.
All right, so we're gonna get kind of go game by game here.
Um, So first we're gonna start with the Astros and with the twin Siri's.
Now, this is a clean sweep sweep for, um, I know America's favorite Houston Astros.
And as much as we hate to admit it, yes, those might actually be a pretty decent team that first when I talk about game one, because Game one, um, was a at least until the ninth inning.
It was a close one.
Okay, um, it was Nelson Cruz with the double and then no scoring until the top of the seventh.
Uh, the Astros leveled up, and this is really where, um, I think where the twins kind of lost a little bit.
Came to my head with five strong innings.
Um, it was really Sergio Aroma, who I think kind of blew it up a little bit.
Nothing to blame, sir.
I mean, he's he's definitely the older stage of his career.
He's 37 years old, Um, but it seemed that I really want to focus on is the Houston Asher, especially for this Siri's they use to pictures in this game.
Four pitch Excuse me.
Four innings with two hits, one earned run.
And this to me should be the M V p of the Siri's right here.
Framer Valdas, The left handed picture of 26 year old um out of the Dominican.
And he pitched five innings off to hit ball and to me, five innings, especially coming out of the bullpen.
He's been a starter all year, but I think that that really save the Astros in the Siri's.
Because Thio to go through this Twins lineup and only give up foreheads once had Braxton wants a cruise.
Wants us to know.
I expect a lot more from the twins.
As you guys know, I predicted the twins to make it to the World Series, and I know I look pretty stupid right now.
But how about Michael Brantley? How about George Springer? And how about Jose Atouba, man they? They showed up and everyone in the lineup had a hit except for our pregnant and not to.
They actually, um, e found that a little bit interesting.
How tube it and pregnant were the only ones to not get a hit in this Siri's.
But the Astros swept the Twins, and two games will cover it to them later on rds portion off the show, the next Siri's.
We're gonna go and then we'll go to the N L R.
Next American League.
Siri's that I want to get.
Thio is the White Sox and the ace Boy.
This was a fun series.
The only American League game.
Should I say the only American League Siri's that went three games was this one right here? Um, the White Sox and the ace.
Now the White Sox took this one on the road, Um, in Oakland.
Uh, manderson had an amazing Siri's batted 7 50 at least in the first game.
What an absolute Jim He is for the Chicago White Sox, seven innings, two hits and one run to the Astros.
Or excuse me to the Oakland Athletics offense, who, even without Matt Chapman, is very complete the White Sox line up.
I mean, if you just go through it to Anderson.
You are Moncada, Yasmani, Grandal off. Jose Brady.
James McCann, Louise Warburton.
I mean, it just goes on and on, and and Carnation didn't play in this series.
I expect him to D h, um, when they are playing well, actually said, I say they're not gonna put people in any more games.
Um, because the ash heroes are what I keep saying.
The Astros guys, I'm sorry.
The Athletics, um, came back to win two straight.
They were the only team.
Or should I say they were the second team to do that or they're such seemed it on the national excited as well.
Um, okay, really impressed with the A's on how they battled back.
They dropped the first game for the one and then we just saw them keep coming back with a Game two victory, um, over over the White Sox, 5 to 3 basket, 17 innings.
Liam Hendriks went 1.
2 and Dykman closed it out.
And to me, the most impressive.
When in the Siri's right here was the Game three for Oakland.
Um thes thes teams to combined use probably about 20 pictures, and I'm I kid you not.
Let's kind of up.
The White Sox use 3456789 and the A's used 12345678 at 17 pictures.
It's a lot alright.
The longest days picture went only two innings.
Longest White Sox picture also went two innings as well.
He and he did end up getting tagged with the loss.
And I think what we've learned from the Chicago White Sox is specifically the fact that they kind of I'm not gonna You know what I'm gonna say? I think those final games in the regular season is really what kind of made it unlucky because it looked like there were a lot to be a two or three seed Andi and host the Siri's.
And I think being on the road, traveling all the way toe Oakland, I think it was really tough for this White Sox team.
And no way, I think.
Is this the end? In fact, this is only the beginning for the Chicago White Sox.
So too much Siri's left to go.
Uh, now we're gonna go to the Rays and the Blue Jays.
And yeah, I gotta be honest with you guys.
This was never a Siris in my eyes.
We always have that one V eight serious.
That is never really a close match.
And this was one of them.
The raise in game one.
Um, Blake Snell went five, Um, and two thirds ending.
That was the longest this year.
Obviously, is coming off of that surgery that he had lashed diabetes.
It was a a throwing arm surgery, and we just saw that bullpen lights out.
Uh, they only gave up five hits.
Nick Anderson the closer with two.
And then Fairbanks with one.
And even the Tampa Bay Rays Onley four hits.
There were only nine hits in this game.
The Rays got out hit by the Blue Jays and on the Blue Jay side of things in game one.
Um, they went more of the bullpen approach, so to speak.
Um, there started.
Went three innings.
Robby Ray came out of the bullpen.
He pitched three.
The former national E.
J. Cole got one broke.
He finished up well to then hatch.
Cathy, um, got the full ending at the end.
But the Blue Jays? I think it's a It's a very it's somewhat of a good start for the Blue Jays.
I think we're going to see them be more relevant.
Common video got a hit, but then you re looked at this **** and grit.
**** and Gabrielle are excuse me, Guerrero.
Gurriel played very well.
Two hits in that first game.
Um, now this was a sweep, so we're just going to get to the next game very quickly.
Um, we're going to bring up the second game between the Rays and the Blue Jays.
And really, what set this game apart? Waas thievery through upto a quick 30 lead.
And then Hunter Renfroe hit the grand slam to make it seven.
Nothing and and only the bottom of the seventh inning, Danny Johnson hit a home run.
Actually, two home runs, I should say, but too little too late for the Blue Jays, at least in the Siri's, um, re you really, really struggled 12 3rd endings with eight hits, seven runs, Three of them are in those.
That's the thing. It was a lot of mistakes.
Um, Toronto had two areas which accounted for those two runs.
But it's tough when you look at your race and going up against this race team.
It was never really a true, a serious one more serious to go.
Um, and I kind of saved the best for last year, and I'm not gonna say it's the best, but definitely the most watched Siris for last.
I listen the American League side of things, and it was the Yankees and the Indians.
Now do you even stood up getting swept, as did the two other teams who got swept as well.
The Indians would shape people on the Mount, expected more, and Bieber gutted it out through four and two thirds innings.
But in the end result, when you look at the box when you watch the game, it looks ugly.
Uh, nine hits, seven runs, all of them being earned with the two walks giving up two home runs.
And we expected more from Bieber, but also at the same time.
Listen to the Yankees lineup.
Well, may you judge Hicks voice stand are shallow. Tories Gardner.
It's such a complete line up, I think.
One of the best lineups in the league.
And that's why I think they could beat the race because just with their fear, power and good bullpen pitching and he it, it's just such a They're not gonna beat this team.
It's in in a Siri's off a three game Siri's for four or five.
I think it was very, um, never close.
Never really close it all d j Love made you.
How about him? Um, Glaber's Horace, especially to with the home run.
I believe he was a former Indians player as well.
Garrett Cole, though this isn't this is someone else that I want to bring to your attention.
Because Carrot Cole he was struggling in the regular season, but he went seven innings, six hits, two earned runs to give up the solo home run.
But aside from that, the Yankees won that 1 12 to 3.
And to close out the sweep, Um, was actually a lot closer of the game.
High scoring again.
Um, but the Yankees won.
This one tend to none.
Um, it was Brad.
I believe it was broad hand.
Is that his name? Brad? Hand it Waas who blew the safe.
Unfortunately, for the Indians.
They were up by one Yankees ended up scoring two.
Um, the Indians really are a fun team to watch.
I mean, you look at all the Squire they have with Lynn Door, um, and, you know, just to name a few more.
Um, it's a good team.
And with the rise of Shen Bieber, there'll be a long there.
Be here for a very long time, this new look Indians team.
But the central is getting very good.
Okay, we look at the rise of the White Sox.
We look at the rise of the Twins.
Okay, The Royals are starting to come back.
The Tigers? Well, they're the Tigers.
Okay for the eight East, they impressed all of America.
I think, uh, and we're all just chatting, By the way, is it least okay? One of the greatest closers so everywhere Yankees uniform.
I'm not gonna say all time, obviously, because off the greatest closer to ever play the game for the Yankees.
So to recap, the American League side of Fix the Astros swept the Twins, the A's beat the White Sox and three the Rays swept the Blue Jays and the Yankees on the road swept the Cleveland Indians.
So the Astros gonna be playing the A's in the divisional series and the race.
They're gonna be playing the Yankees the divisional series.
Now we're gonna go to the National League.
All right? The National League.
I'm gonna close this up. Guys.
The National League has been These playoffs were awesome.
I'm definitely a nationally type of person.
Okay, The National League.
Um, I think our a great A great legal together.
We're looking at the rise of all the stars.
There's definitely a lot of promise And to lead into the stars and how great this league is, we're gonna hop into the Reds and the Braves.
Now, before I get into this serious, I know we have Reds fans and Braves fans who watch art show.
I know you guys exist.
Okay, Game one, this was the rise game to win it.
Waas When you have Tripper Bauer, go seven and two thirds innings giving up only two hits and 12 strikeouts.
You expect to win that game, your office has to pull through and win it for you.
Okay? some embarrassing people here.
All right, Joey Votto.
You cannot to play.
Nicolas Castillo knows you came out to play.
In fact, the entire Cincinnati Reds lineup came out to play 11 hits.
That's almost double the amount that the Braves had with their six cents.
But the biggest part? I don't want you guys to listen to me very quick because this is this is amazing.
26 men on base 26.
You're telling me that you couldn't have brought one of those guys in the problem and the Reds are.
I know Sam like them, um, coming in and I can see why they're a great team.
But I said the Reds would have a tough time scoring and I don't mean like this.
I didn't get shut down two straight games.
I'm not scoring just a couple of runs and the Braves going to keep up.
But how about the Braves? Bolton? Max freed seven innings, No hit ball.
Martin and Melanson and Will Smith all no hits.
There are no day one hit, and then we got into the later parts of the games with Mastec to hit still no runs.
Shane Greene to its stone overruns and a J mentor lights out in 13 innings.
When you give up no runs, you're doing something right and the Braves can show the Marlins the divisional opponent, just how good they are.
The Braves beat the Reds, won nothing in Game 15 Nothing in Game two, the Braves Street sweep the Reds.
Siri's is going to be also at the very, very bottom right of the bracket between the Marlins and the Cubs.
A very, very disappointing Siris for the Cubs.
Um, bad this Cubs team when you go from Kyle Hendricks to you, Darvish to to maybe even Jon Lester in Game three.
I know this Marlins students specialize again.
When I hope you're watching.
I dio alright, you know what? I think if you're if you're here watching, all right, if you're in here watching, I'm gonna go check the chat just for you.
All right? To see if if you're watching this right now, um, I think I think we're gonna He's not in here.
Um, we'll be seeing the replay of this very soon, and Okay, I think the Marlins are going toe.
Have a very good Siri's a very good Siri's.
But the Chicago Cubs, you got to be better on offense.
You they just couldn't piece together, hits only four heads.
That, um when you have guys like he had had, like Anthony Rizzo, like Chris Bryant, like Kyle Schwarber like Billy Hamilton.
Maybe like Wilson Contreras like, how dare guys like Jason Fitness like Hayward.
How do you only put up one run, one run and I to them? Siri's teams had problems scoring runs in the Siri's and, in my opinion, none other.
Besides the Reds, the Cubs had a very tough time, very, and the Cups Pitching wasn't even all that bad, too.
In Game one could have been better.
But in these playoffs, in a playoff game, you can score more than five runs and be the Marlins Game one.
That's all I have to say and then to this was just a bad loss.
All right now, this game was actually played yesterday, came to the original time on Thursday, got round episodes actually played yesterday.
Um, this was even more of a soul crushing loss.
I want to read off some of the batting averages.
Um, in this Siri's I know batting average.
Some of you guys don't like it, but I think it shows it hacked.
Um, played amazing in this series.
He did with a 500 batting average.
Who's sick? All right, but I'm going to read to these next guys with zero batting average.
No, it's Anthony Rizzo.
Call Schwarber Chris Bryant.
Cameron made it.
Javier Baez only had one hit and you lose when you give up two hits.
The Coast Balkan is actually very good, all right? And it's It's not where it needs to be right now for the coast.
It's not the Marlins.
Still, how about the Marlins? Alright.
This team should not be good.
It shouldn't be good, all right, But somehow, somewhere they just keep powering through.
They remind me exactly if the Nationals last year ah, bunch of somewhat proven, not really proven players that in all pieces together and to come in at the right time.
Corey ****erson playing out of his mind.
As you said you were having a career season.
Matt Joyce, Miguel RoHaas, drug Lybrand and kids learn.
The Marlins can win.
Um another Siris in the playoffs.
You can count on that.
Two more serious left to go.
Let's go to the Dodgers.
Siri's first off because this Dodgers Siri's Waas, never a real one are.
I'm not going to shame the bruise because they were never supposed to be in the playoffs.
They were never supposed to be contending with the Dodgers.
The Dodgers came.
They showed up and they really well, okay, Carly Ballenger struggling a little bit.
But that's okay because you have guys like Kenley Jansen like Blake trying like Walker Brewer Like who you are a raise.
The Dodgers are the most completing we've seen in the MLB in a very, very long time.
Alright, the Dodgers one game one by score off.
Well, I'm bringing up.
The Dodgers won Game one by a score of 4 to 2, and they won, uh, three.
Nothing in the second game.
Eight Annex, three hits, No runs, 13 strikeouts.
Absolutely shut down the Brewers lineup.
The Dodgers, in my eyes, still are in no way to be.
What's up? Atlanta kids are Atlanta kid.
Um, what predictions have I missed so far? Um, so really, we're so far, just recapping the wild card round.
We will get you those NLDS predictions so far, Um, the Reds put of zero runs.
Yeah, that was really bad.
I know your Braves fan and it it just wasn't It just wasn't meant to be for the Reds.
Uh, it was tough.
And the Braves, your braves, um, their pitching was amazing.
And I know a lot of people doubted the Braves.
I didn't I wasn't one of those guys.
I knew that the Braves were a good team as long as they could score runs and at least have above average kitchen.
They had, in my opinion, the best pitching out of all these wild card teams because you the bullpen just absolutely showed up and they played amazing.
Joyce and Cervelli were both on the various postseason roster last year.
Yes, they were, um, it that's gonna be an awesome, great divisional round.
Siri's to division teams to play each other 10 times.
Oh, your name is Blake.
Um, then you got a tuna who was just tomorrow little, but he's Yeah, but Marcel Ozuna, in my opinion, is going to be finished third and M V P voting.
And this is contract year.
So, like I don't know what's What's your playing on? Obviously, I'm thinking you should try to re sign him.
But how much money do you think he watched? I'm not really familiar.
I think the Nationals should definitely go out and try making attempts to sign him simply because they need a right handed back behind or in front of Juan Soto.
But this bribes team, I think not to jump to any conclusions yet.
All right, so I haven't made my DS predictions, but the Braves air definitely the favorite in this Siri's.
That's all I'm gonna say.
So we got one more Siri's left to go, and that was the Cardinals and Padres.
Siri's the final wildcard ran recap that we have.
So the Cardinals in the pot.
Okay, I'm gonna I'm gonna skip Game one because the Cardinals just dominated that game.
Begin to, um, the Padres pieced together a masterful bullpen game, and that's what the Padres were doing all along with no mic.
Um, it was it was tough for them in this Siri's, but they they pieced every every little thing together and I I think the Padres, when their bullpen can pitch like this, they can be a very deadly too.
Uh, the cardinals.
They put up a great fight in this one Adam win, right? Um e I mean, it sucks tissues to not see him, um, play really well because I love Adam Wainwright.
I think he's awesome on Yadi.
I really want to go see.
Um Yeah, the air.
Molina. Just play one more time.
Uh, but the San Diego Padres, I expected.
I know a lot of other people did, too.
They they the Padres came through.
They did, and they scored runs on the front.
They scored 11 runs and they put out the zero against ST Louis was another bullpen get.
And Trevor Rosenthal has been a very valuable piece for the Padres.
All right, so we're gonna be back in just 30 seconds for a divisional round preview.
Um, divisional round preview coming up.
Thanks for watching our wild card recap.
Okay, let's start with the A L d.
S actually know what? We're gonna wait One minute, it's that more people could come and trickle in and we'll be right back in this Edward back.
I tried Thio at least separate this, uh into to Siri's.
But actually, before that, we're having Blake coming.
He's a big bro's fan, so let's see what he wants to say about Marcelas into this offseason.
So what he said is resigning him.
Try to your deal on Lee if and on Lee if they keep the d h.
But also, he points out, they got to extend Freddie Freeman because I believe he's a free agent in just a couple of years.
And also Trevor Bauer, Cork Lugar also free agents this year as well.
Um, that those air big guys because you look at the Braves starting pitching, it's good, but it's not great if they have great starting pitching.
They also got to keep the bulb, and these are not my words.
By the way, there's your Blakes.
Um, so, actually, this is, um, this is actually kind of my show.
Jack is actually out watching college football right now, so I was just trying to cover us.
But, you know, what we can do is we can actually have you come onto Golden hour one of these times eso if you can just hit us up on instagram, Um, at golden dot our sports we can get, um you all connected with that so you can actually be on gold.
Now, if you want one of these times you've been a great host for us are not a host, but a great, um, interactive fan s so you can actually be on gold now sometimes if that appeals to you.
Um, so also, what you said is we've got to keep the bullpen together.
Shangri Marc Melanson are free agents this year.
Um, Markakis, Tomlin, NCR say will walk away.
I know how tough that, uh, that sounds, but I definitely think it's unfortunate, but I think it might be time to watch enduring CRT walk.
I think if you can keep Markakis to a low, cheap deal because I'm not exactly sure how well Adam Duvall is going to be playing, and I don't know if you want Austin Rally to keep on playing there.
Um, yeah, for sure you can.
You can come on for a, uh, golden hour one time, uh, family.
And what's the score of that game by the well in my room? so I'm not actually watching the game right now.
Um, I wanted to get the same real quick, but while while we're interacting right here, we're gonna go to the American League divisional series.
So we we got the Astros in the athletics.
Um, it's been being awesome.
Siri's It really is.
And I'm excited because you look at these two divisional rivals playing each other.
Obviously, we know the story with the Astros.
Without that chairman, are they going to be able to compete? This Siri's is being played at Dodger Stadium.
Yes, the Astros are playing at Dodger Stadium, so I'm sure the Dodgers fans going to give, uh, Obama just had forced nothing even it up.
So is it 14 14? Yes, I'm assuming.
All right, I'm just gonna assume its fourth imports.
And actually what? I'm gonna look it up right now just so that you don't have to type it.
Uh, in the chat, Obama A, uh oh.
Alabama just jumped back up 21 to 14.
I'm not sure if I just okay, I'm not sure if I just slowed the game for you right there, so I'm not going to repeat myself.
Um, but the Astros and Athletics, I think that's going to be a great Siri's.
This a five game Siri's.
So I think it will definitely be, um, interesting.
I'll give you my predictions of the Yankees and Rays Tube Top one of two top starting pitching rotations and to top opens.
These teams cannot get more even than what they are right now.
It's gonna be a five game series, and it will go all five games.
I do have my prediction, but we're gonna wait on that right now, so we're gonna go to the NL side of things now.
We got the Padres and the Dodgers, and we got the Marlins and the Braves.
Who would have thought that at the end of this year, our divisional series matchups would include the Padres, the Marlins and the Braves? I knew we all kinda thought the Dodgers and the Braves, but there's no way I know there's no way people said the moralism, the Padres, Um, but the positive been playing awesome this year.
They had they been fun to watch, but it's gonna be tough for them to contend with this Dodger steam that Syria's is going to be a global I field and the Yankees race.
Siri's is gonna be a Petco Park.
So Dodger Stadium, Petco Park for the A l Global I Field, which is where the Texas Rangers play is going to be held.
Uh, that's where the Dodgers is going to be playing their suits.
So our final NLDS, Siri's, the Marlins and the Braves.
That game is going to be held at Minute Maid Park, and I can't wait to see Sisco Sanchez pitch again.
And I know Blake.
You're dreading it going up against Sisco Sanchez.
Don't don't don't play those games with me.
I know that's the guy you're scared off as you should be.
There's there's a There's a definite reason on why you should be scared off Sisco Sanchez.
I think the Braves have to line up, but if this is the year to win it, if they're gonna win in any of these years, the Braves, I think this is their time because, as you mentioned, there's there is, um, getting back to mark a consensual type of Alex to get next to mine.
You can but do these people.
I would keep Duval over Inciarte a powered keep Markakis over Inciarte too.
I would go Markakis Duval in CR today you try to keep Markakis.
Obviously, you're keeping Duval as well.
Um, but I think you want to keep one of those outfielders.
I I don't know that I don't I don't know the braves as much as you Dio s.
Oh, I don't know how much you're looking at paying him if you can.
This is what I would be doing.
I would try to find a way to keep Markakis to stick around, and I think he wants to stick around to He was part of those bad times with the Braves.
Um, same with Inciarte and Freddie Freeman.
All those guys you have had, um, some real life long players over in the Braves organization.
That's what I really like about the Braves.
Is that even in the tough times, your star players, well, we'll stay there.
And during CRT was your starting center fielder for the longest time.
And when a Kunar came in, he was fine with settling down to the bench.
Freddie Freeman was there for those 70 and 81 seasons, and he stayed there being one of the best first ba*****t in the game.
And now that they're back, I think it's sad for me as a baseball fan.
I'm sure maybe for you growing up with these guys, um, that it's been tough.
So now we're gonna close that with our predictions.
Astros and Athletics.
Your local athletics will win this one in four games.
Athletics and four Yankees and Rays.
I said, this is gonna be a five game serious.
But overall, I think this Yankees offense is going to be just a little bit too much for this race.
Bolton Yankee's gonna win in five games.
Padres and Dodgers.
Now it's It's tough, it's It's tough because you know, you know how much I like the Padres, but it would be they would just be wrong to not pick the Dodgers in the Siri's Dodgers in four Braves and Marlins.
Um, Blake, This is the Siri's that you've wanted.
I think the braids are gonna win this Siri's.
They're gonna win this one in five games.
It should not go to five games, but I know this Marlins team is just so resilience, and they're gonna They're gonna find a way.
They're gonna fight.
They're gonna fight, but end up coming just short.
So, to recap, we got the Astros and Athletics at is and four Yankees and Rays.
Yankees and five Dodgers and Padres, Dodgers and four Marlins and Braves.
Braves and five.
So that's about it.
We're gonna respond to Blake one more time.
We got Christian passed through Walters, Justin doing the system, so I like to have the ball kuna a president under one.
Yeah, you're right.
Six go isn't a Sherry is Bauer and Castillo, of course, but a knock on wood.
I know you would hope for that.
And I'm wishing you all the best in this series.
I'll be watching the Braves.
I'm rooting for the Braves, and Okay, Cool.
