Ryan Chell and I introduced a new segment Wednesday on “The Reality Check” on AM1570 WNST.net. The segment is called “The Starting Nine (Ten)” and is remarkably similar to “The Tuesday Top 7” that you hear Drew Forrester and Luke Jones doing every week.
During Major League Baseball season, we’ll use “The Starting Nine (Ten)” to pick out the best players at each position in baseball (Pitcher, Catcher, DH, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B and three OF’s). It’s similar to how “The Morning Reaction” guys select the best Baltimore Ravens every week in season.
Outside of baseball season, we’ll select a topic and fill a roster with the same positions based on the topic.
For example, this week’s topic was “The Faces of the Rock Bottom Era of Orioles Baseball (1998-present).”
Here are “The Starting Nine (Ten)” Ryan and I put together…
Glenn Clark’s Nine (Ten):
First Base-Garrett Atkins
Second Base-Delino DeShields
Third Base-Mark Reynolds
Designated HItter-Vladimir Guerrero
