Matt Vasgersian Talks NL Wild Card Race, Working With A-Rod, Observing Vince McMahon in XFL Era

Matt Vasgersian joins the podcast this week! He will be calling the National League Wild Card game for ESPN on Tuesday night alongside A-Rod and Jessica Mendoza. We discussed:

  • The madness of there being five teams who could play in the Wild Card game with just a few games left to play in the regular season.
  • If he ever thought about quitting when he was toiling through the minors in his twenties.
  • The job he badly wanted but didn’t get, and getting his break into the major leagues a year later. (Both involved the Brewers.)
  • Calling the XFL, and a fascinating story about watching Vince McMahon micromanage every element of Monday Night Raw.
  • What the public doesn’t know about A-Rod
  • His favorite rock band of all-time and who he thinks is most overrated.

Hope you enjoy!
