The Slumpbuster

Jul 12, 2021

It's once again time to Bust the Slump and enjoy another episode of the Slumpbuster podcast! Joining us this week is Megan Ellis & Pam Wilinski of the Ballpark Vibes baseball blog. Megan, Pam & Ju-Ju talk some of the biggest stories from the Major League Baseball's first half on this episode!

Starting off the show we look at the MLB trade market. What are some names that are being talked about in negotiations? Who will be buyers and sellers by the end of July? Will Max Scherzer, Nelson Cruz, Kris Bryant and others find new homes on contenders? #MLB

Our next story revolves around Rob Manfred's handling of the 'Sticky Stuff' situation in the season's early going. Did the MLB get it right in taking on this situation? Do players like Tyler Glasnow have a point in criticizing the enforcement against foreign substances?

Trevor Bauer has been in the news recently following accusations of misconduct in the bedroom. Have the Los Angeles Dodgers and MLB handled the Bauer situation properly to this point? Will Bauer take the mound again in 2021? #TrevorBauer

We are finally at the MLB All-Star break in Colorado. Who will win the 2021 Home Run Derby? Will the American League make it 8 straight victories over their National League counterparts? Was the game better when it dictated home field advantage in the World Series? #MLBAllStarGame

Is Shohei Ohtani the favorite for the AL MVP? Will Jacob DeGrom secure the NL MVP? The crew gives their predictions!

Enjoy the Show!
