The convergence of major sports during the fall season will be a primary focus on the 121st Episode of THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EDT on SportsTalkNetwork.com).
After The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and our look at This Week in The FDH Lounge, we waste no time in getting to our first guest: Cleveland Indians first baseman/outfielder Shelley Duncan. We’ll get his perspectives as a player in terms of what it takes to reach the big leagues, what it takes to stay there, what postseason baseball is like and some significant trends in the game. At the bottom of Hour One, we recap the ALCS with our friend Lisa Marie Latino of The Yankee Princess and Long Shot Productions. Plus, as a young female reporter in the New York market, who better to ask for insights on the Favre/Sterger controversy?
Hour Two brings us New York Mets broadcaster Wayne Hagin, who will give us his thoughts on the ongoing managerial/front office shakeup in Queens as well as his perspectives on two teams whose games he called this year: the Giants and Phillies – who squared off in an epic NLCS. Our next two segments will be a lot of fun also: a comprehensive World Series preview and a look ahead to the NBA season that will follow the historic Summer of ’10.
Then, THE FANTASY DRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER closes out the show with our big NFL Week 8 preview. We remind you also to consult our new fantasy – and non-fantasy – hoops guide, FANTASY HOOPS DRAFTOLOGY 2010. Click and enjoy! Also, remember that for your football needs, you should be using our FANTASY FOOTBALL DRAFTOLOGY 2010 as your guide through the season, along with our weekly fantasy newsletter at The FantasyDrafthelp.com Blog – which, during the football season, has your list of which players to start each week.
As always, we urge you to watch the show live (or listen if you’re on dial-up), but if you can’t catch this as it’s happening, you can always catch the FDH archives 24-7 right here or catch us on iTunes. Also, you can sample THE FDH LOUNGE VAULT, a compilation of our best interviews and roundtables, now every weeknight from 6-7 PM, also on SportsTalkNetwork.com.
