Reporting Mark Zinno
Fran Charles of the MLB Network joined Zinno on “Last Call” to talk about the first week of the baseball season.
Listen to the full interview here:
Charles recapped Chris Davis’ amazing start and how good he looks. Charles said that Davis is “making it look effortless.” Zinno and Fran continued to discuss how fans seem to overreact to things that happen in the first week and some of the impressive story lines to the league.
Bryce Harper is off to a hot start and the fellas spoke about what he is capable of. Charles said, “He can be the greatest player in the game.” Also, the two gentlemen discussed how the focus of baseball has shifted to the west coast and how all the big teams are now on the “left coast.” Fran talked how the Dodgers and Angels have grabbed a lot of the headlines this off-season, but now have to prove it on the field.
Finally, Zinno asked Fran about the scheduling snafu between the Ravens and Orioles. Fran used to work for the NFL Network, so he has a particularly interesting point of view about both leagues. Charles said he didn’t consider it a “win for Major League Baseball” but thought that it was the right thing for baseball and the Orioles to hold to their schedule.
