Wake Up Hour - Jeff Jones
It was a busy day of roster movement in St. Louis yesterday as the Cardinals added four to the 40 man and the Blues took Jay Bouwmeester off of IR. Adding a hard throwing righty does raise questions about whether the Cardinals may be expecting to lose one. Bouwmeester deserves to have an automatic spot in the lineup. What exactly does it mean to get Wally Pipped? Hockey Bob calls in with a radio lineup update. The big show this morning is going to be a doozy thanks to Fake News Gaines.
Segment One - Chris Denman, Travis Terrell, Michael Gaines, Jeff Jones
Trav is running a little late this morning and it may be because of jealousy. Chris is practicing the technological side of cutting off Jeff when Larry Hughes comes in studio to make sure there's no DC talk. The phone was definitely ringing off the hook at Jeff Fisher's agent's office yesterday. Travis is a weird jealous journalist. He thinks we're better than this. The reach of this thing was absolutely outrageous yesterday. Travis is afraid that Navy SEALs are going to come pick us off outside the studio. Gaines could probably get himself verified today. Gaines may end up saving the Mizzou football season for next year. KFB has the Tyus Edney text of the century. Mayor Gaines is excited to preside over the Illini/Mizzou series in nine years. Hockey Bob is Confucious now.
Segment Two - Chris Denman, Travis Terrell, Michael Gaines, Jeff Jones
By hook or by crook, Travis is trying to force the discussion away from Gaines. Mizzou "won" last night, but the Michael Porter Jr. thing is officially weird now. The small amount of time played in the opener is by far the weirdest part about the process. Where does the frustration lie in this situation? Are Mizzou fans going to feel like there was a bait and switch? Jim Sterk confirmed yesterday that Barry Odom is coming back for next year. The turkey pardon is pretty stupid. Paintings and Paul Newman's jewelry apparently go for a whole bunch of money. Travis is so wrapped up in jealousy that it's hysterical. Joe Morgan sent an email to the Hall of Fame voters about steroids and it's pretty audacious. Travis is exporting his generalized feeling on older black folks onto Joe Morgan. Travis is going to take a knee for the national anthem at Thanksgiving. MAGA hats stay on at the table.
Segment Three (with Tanya Ray Fox and Larry Hughes) - Chris Denman, Travis Terrell, Michael Gaines, Jeff Jones
Travis is still fired up about fake news, and we're joined by Tanya Ray Fox (@TanyaRayFox) to break down yesterday's ridiculousness. Gaines is shaking a little but we're managing to pull it off smooth as we're joined in studio by SLU legend and former NBA great Larry Hughes (@thereallhughes). Larry's going to hire some of the listeners to be his publicist. Larry has a ton of good insight on the state of basketball today and the way the game and the league have changed since his youth. Larry sits in for Fair or Foul and Travis is humiliated.
