On That’s Amaury’s podcast:

#1 Amaury it might have been a brief 60 game schedule for the regular season and a different format for the post season, and the Dodgers didn’t play at Dodger Stadium for the post season but none the less after losing three of the last three World Series the Dodgers have one more game to get a shot at the ring.

#2 Amaury Joe Pederson added to the Dodgers run tally with a home run in game 5 it proved to be important as the Dodgers beat the Tampa Bay Rays by two runs 4-2.

#3 The Dodgers got some great pitching from starter Clayton Kershaw pitching over five innings and giving up two runs striking out six.

#4 Max Muncy also hit for a key home run in the fifth inning a 406 foot shot to center right and it was enough for the Dodgers to come away with the two run victory.

#5 A crucial game for both teams tonight at Arlington as the Rays need to win game 6 to tie and stay alive in the series and for the Dodgers to win game 6 to wrap their first World’s Championship in their last four World Series tries.

Las Vegas Raiders podcast with Barbara Mason:

#1 The Tampa Bay Buccaneers came into Vegas leaving very little doubt from the first half of Sunday’s game that they were going to make some noise all afternoon.

#2 The Bucs got to work early with quarterback Tom Brady carrying the ball for a yard for their first score at 5:41 in the first quarter and in the second quarter Brady threw to Ron Gronkowski and Scotty Miller for touchdowns and the Bucs came away with a 21-10 first half lead.

#3 The Raiders best defensive effort was the third quarter where they held the Bucs to only a field goal but the Bucs came out in the the fourth quarter with Brady throwing touchdown passes to Chris Godwin and Tyler Johnson and running back Ronald Jones II carried for a one yard touchdown and the Bucs came away with a convincing 45-20 win.

#4 The Raiders outside that third quarter just couldn’t contain Brady and the Buc O line gave Brady enough protection for him to accomplish four touchdowns in the game.

#5 The Raiders who dropped to 3-3 face the Cleveland Browns (5-2) next Sunday in Cleveland. The Browns after winning four straight games struggled in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers 38-7 in week 7 and last Sunday just got by the Cincinnati Bengals 37-34

Things were looking up but on Thursday five players have tested positive for the Raiders going into Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers each of these players were tested each day since Thursday.

#3 Jonathan Abrams, Kolton Miller, Denzelle Good, Rodney Hudson and Gabe Jackson are the five Raiders who need to be found negative before being allowed to play on Sunday how crucial are these players in this game against Tampa Bay?

#4 Rich the game between the Raiders and Bucs was scheduled to be the Sunday Night Football prime time game but had to be moved for the afternoon in the event the game was postponed the Seattle-Arizona game has been moved into the Sunday Night Football prime time spot.

#5 Rich, the NFL and the Players Association have investigated how these players might have contracted the virus Raiders offensive tackle Trent Brown was said not to have been wearing his tracker consistently which helps keep track of close contacts.

#6 So the big day has come where the Raiders will host Tom Brady and the Buccaneers this is an anticipated meeting and the Raiders who are coming off a close loss to the Buffalo Bills and a big win over the Kansas City Chiefs and had a bye week how ready are the Raiders to take on Brady and the Bucs this Sunday.

#3 Tony after the San Francisco 49ers (3-3) got clobbered by the Miami Dolphins (3-3) at Levis Stadium in week 5 by final a of 43-17 things were looking doubtful but in week 6 against the LA Rams (4-2) the Niners made a huge turn around with a commanding 24-16 win what was the difference in the two games?

That’s Amaury’s News and Commentary: Without Sports? Things to do.

Without Sports? Things to do.

That’s Amaury News and Commentary

Amaury Pi-González

Let’s face it.No country on the face of the earth has more variety of sports,and great leagues than the USA. The best players in the world,that play baseball play in Major League Baseball, in Basketball in the National Basketball Association in Football, in the National Football League, in Hockey in the National Hockey League.

They all come to the USA,the most talented athletes in most sports in the world. Except in Soccer (Fútbol) with all respect to the US Major League Soccer, the only thing Major is their name,because the best soccer in the world is played in Europe i.e,Premier League (England) Bundesliga (Germany) and La Liga (Spain) are three of the very best in the world,with most of the best players in the world.

Many addicted to sports in our great country,might be looking to replace the vacant left by the Coronavirus pandemic cancellations.

Here are 10 thing to do. I am sure you have thought of these and many others,or maybe not.

1-Read a good book,it is relaxing.Don’t want to buy it,Libraries still open,check a book. Free. 2-Go to the beach,take a nice long walk in the sand next to the ocean,is as relaxing as anything. Free. 3-At home.Binge on sports movies,baseball movies are the best,there are many,so what if you have seen it?

Free 4-Support and visit your local Little Leagues most are still operating. Free 5-ESPN and other sports channels will be running big sporting events from the past. Free. 6-Car Racing. NASCAR already announced they are still doing the races, with no people in the stands, but they are televised LIVE.

Free 7-You might like Horse Racing. Go to a race,even if you are not a gambler. Alameda County Fair and others coming soon.You do not have to bet on a horse. They way this sport is going,with so many dead horses,it might not be around much longer.Free, if you’re not betting. 8-Batting Cages,it is always fun with a friend to see if you can hit the ball thrown from a machine,it is fun.

I have done it. Reasonable. 9-Bowling still open.Take the family or a friend,or join a league. Bowling is the “game”sport with more popular participation in the US with around 43 to 45 million people going at least once a year. Reasonable. 10-Fishing. Dusty Baker favorite.We live in the Bay Area,ocean,lakes, rivers,you name it. Reasonable.

Finally, like most Cubans,if they are not eating,playing music or talking politics,more than likely they will be playing Dominoes for pleasure,but you can lose money too.

Have fun!
