PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) – Greg Amsinger, the host of MLB Network’s MLB Tonight, joined Chris Mueller on Wednesday afternoon. They start off talking about the two tough losses for the Pirates the last two nights, which saw them lose by walkoff home runs by young players.
Amsinger said of the last two nights, “iIt had to be a dagger in the hearts of the folks in the Steel City.”
He noted that having two young guys hitting walkoffs makes it “hard to gauge where they are right now.”
Amsinger continues saying, “It’s not the St Louis Cardinals of 2013,” which he thinks will make this race better.
Amsinger weighs in on the Brewers tough stretch and he thinks, “they are in a weird spot.”
“At the end of the day, the Brewers are going to be looking up at these other three teams,” Amsinger added.
When asked who he thinks will come out on top, Amsinger argues, “[The] Cardinals experience is going to edge out these two teams, but its not going to be a runaway.”
You can watch Greg host MLB Network’s “MLB Tonight” at 6 p.m. live from Minnesota’s Target Field next Monday and Tuesday leading up to the All-Star Game.
