If a franchise with unlimited money is what you want, look no further than the Los Angeles Dodgers. Clayton Kershaw already has 2 Cy Young awards on his resume. These and his consistent early career brilliance has earned the Dodgers ace some straight cash to the variety of $215 million. Kershaw will now earn an average of $30 million per year for 7 years. Even with his success and promise for the future, was this too much to pay for player only taking the field every fifth day? What will this mega contract mean for future deals?
Sticking with baseball, MLB has officially passed their new instant replay system. Will replay eliminate the constant controversies? Are there and negatives and adjustments that still need made?
When your team is losing and suffering from a disease of drama, what do you do to gain attention? Well, punching a defender, after your posterizing attempt was foiled is usually a solid choice. Nick Young agrees. Is a 1 game suspension enough? What the Hell is wrong with the Lakers immature Kid N’ Play look alike?
Any reason to press the panic button for the Heat off their losing streak? Mike informs George why he’s insanely overreacting.
Another gold quality broadcasts caps off with the NFL’s Championship weekend. Who will win the bitter rivalry of youth between the 49ers and Seahawks? Does Peyton Manning need a win for his legacy? The Super Bowl 48 matchup will be set.
Our champions are eternally crown, as the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
On this editon of the esteemed Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show, the Baseball Hall of Fame elects three new members. In an eternal cloud of controversy looming over baseball’s home of immortality, Cooperstown’s doors remains locked to past steroid users. Mike analyzes this year’s ballot and who he feels will receive the honor going forward. How can this mess be fixed? Are deserving canidates getting screwed, solely for a PED suspicion? Will it eventually become easier for the borderline guys? The Baseball Hall of Fame is surely asinine.
College Football has not only ended another season, it has also closed an era. Gone is the BCS. Florida State is your last BCS National Champion. What will the playoff format be like? How will the BCS era be remembered? And where does FSU stack up among every BCS National Champion?
Moving from college to the pros, Johnny Manziel has officially declared for the NFL Draft. Where will he go? Should he actually petition to avoid the Cleveland curse?

There’s not a holiday the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw can’t conquer, much like they conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
As the holiday season kicks into gear, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo get in the feasting mode. Not only are they preparing to feast on the upcoming Thanksgiving meal, they will be feasting on the sports world as well.
Major League Baseball wasted no time in firing up the hot stove. Prince Fielder and Ian Kinsler will be swapping teams. The Detroit Tigers sent their declining former “big bopper” to a more suitable home in Texas, while the Rangers shipped their WARrior to the “D.” Who was the winner of this deal?, Perhaps was this a rare even trade? Can this revitalize Prince Fielder’s career?
Just like in baseball, there’s a lot heating up on the ice. However, it seems to only be heating up in one conference. The Western Conference currently holds the eight best teams in hockey. What is the reason for the extreme west dominance? Will the west continue to own the league throughout the season?
Jonathan Quick’s magic will be absent from the Los Angeles Kings indefinitely, after a recent injury. How much will this effect the Kings? And maybe more importantly, will Quick’s injury hurt team USA’s chances in the Olympics? There’s even some more immature/hilarious/asinine Twitter banter among NHL franchises.
Dwight Howard is an overgrown child. This is fact. His antics in a game against Dallas showed exactly why. Will Dwight ever grow up? Will the Dwightmare that is now his career ever stop being asinine? We can all dream, right?
Thanks to controversy, George earned his biggest lead in years in another week of the HBS NFL Pick’em Challenge.
A feast for the hungry will always be conquered. The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer their sports starvation, by conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…
