MLB divisional rounds are set!; Padres fire Tinglers; Mets and Theo Epstein "not right fit" (10/7)

Nothing Personal with David Samson

Today’s word of the day is ‘lights’ as in journey as in when the lights go down in the city and the sun shines on the bay as in Los Angeles Dodgers are headed to San Francisco to take on the Giants. Two teams that won more than 105 regular season games. Two teams that have been unbelievable all year. Chris Taylor with a walk-off 2-run homer and we’ve got ourselves a series. Let’s talk about how each team got here. (12:15) Someone asked me about a comment from our YouTube live show last night. This person wanted me to explain my comments on the Dodgers being bullies and disliked by all other teams. (17:20) The San Diego Padres fired Jayce Tingler after two seasons. Expectations through the roof. Team was supposed to challenge the Dodgers and they finished under .500! (26:25) Review: Come From Away. (29:55) Theo Epstein is not going to join the New York Mets front office. Reports, sources, the streets; all said that Theo and Cohen had a nice talk, but it wasn’t the right fit. Okay. (35:30) So You Wanna Talk To Samson!? Someone asked me about the Houston Astros and the offer they previously made to Carlos Correa. They wanted to know how the front office decides on why to move on or keep a player like Carlos Correa. (41:40) Let’s do our ALDS preview and picks. Chicago White Sox vs Houston Astros, Boston Red Sox vs Tampa Bay Rays.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
