TTB #32: More NLCS, ALCS, and Amarillo Baseball’s Phillip Wellman

It’s been an exciting week in the MLB Playoffs! The Dodgers and Red Sox are in the driver’s seat right now, but will that continue?

In this week’s episode of the Tom Talks Baseball Podcast, David Lovejoy, and special guest Lance Lahnert, host of the Sports Drive, join me as we tackle some of the issues that have come up in the past week. Were we fine with Yasiel Puig’s actions in an at-bat against Jeremy Jeffress? Did Manny Machado’s words and actions cost him in free agency? Was fan interference the right call at Minute Maid Wednesday night? We tackle all of that and more.

Only a couple of Quick Hitters this week, and a winner in the Guess That Stance Contest.


We continue to turn out attention toward the baseball team that’s coming to Amarillo next year! Amarillo Professional Baseball’s Phillip Wellman joins David and me, as we learn more about the man calling the shots in the dugout! While most might know him from that one night in Chattanooga, TN in 2007, Phillip has had a very successful career as a manager in the minor leagues. We learn more about his history in baseball, his managerial style, and his thoughts on Brad Wieck, a player he’s had in San Antonio the last few seasons who’s from Amarillo!

If you’d like to just check out the Phillip Wellman Interview, I have it listed separately above. However you chose to listen, I how you enjoy this week’s episode!
