Former White Sox outfielder Mike Huff talks Astros, Phillies, World Series, new manager Pedro Grifol
Former 9-Year Major League Baseball outfielder (Los Angeles Dodgers, Cleveland Indians, Chicago White Sox and Toronto Blue Jays) Michael Huff visits the Jack Vita Show to break down the first five games of the 2022 World Series.
The Houston Astros took a commanding 3-2 series lead with their 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday night at Citizens Bank Park. The Astros are now in the driver's seat, with the series heading back to Houston for game six and game seven Saturday and Sunday.
Mike and Jack discuss the Phillies' remarkable run and the impact manager Rob Thomson has had on his club since taking over for Joe Girardi midway through the season. They also discuss the Astros' pitching depth and outstanding ability to draft and develop talent. What changes might Jack and Mike make to the postseason in the future? Should Major League Baseball do away with the 2-3-2 playoff format? Should the American League and National League Division Series be a best-of-seven series, instead of a best-of-five, moving forward? Mike and Jack break down the World Series and preview the season's final two games of baseball.
Earlier this week, the Chicago White Sox named Kansas City Royals bench coach Pedro Grifol their new manager. Mike and Jack assess the hire, and discuss plenty of other baseball topics along the way!
