Radio Sports Show Host Fred Wallin Dead....Well, Not Really

One-third of the Thomas Somach posse consisting of radio sports talk show host Fred Wallin, sports handicapper Dale Stickel (the Philadelphia Prince) and, of course, our beloved super human reporter Somach, was listed as being deceased on an internet central database. 


There's just one problem, Mr. Wallin is still alive and kicking.

One has to wonder what Somach is doing searching his buddies databases at 1 am in the morning, but more so, why this information is so dead wrong...pun intended.

Somach placed around a dozen texts to his 75-year-old friend to make sure the information was not accurate.  He's still alive and trying to figure out how to block Somach on his Blackberry flip phone.

Wallin's credits include co-hosting KABC radio's "Sportstalk" program in the 80's.  More recently he appears as a host on Byline.  If he doesn't appear this weekend, we'll know Somach is a witch.

Or maybe Wallin is back from the dead and wants blood....Somach's blood... for uncovering this gaffe like only Somach can do.  Word on the street is that Somach texted all of Wallin's family members and friends offering his condolences before confirming Fred was still alive.

Stickel, long time Gambling911 readers will recall, probably should be dead.  His crazed neighbor on multiple times tried to mow him down with his automobile.



Under Watch in Rangers-Astros Game Saturday

The Under is 14-5 in the series between the Texas Rangers and Houston Astros.  More importantly, the Under is 8-1 in Rangers last 9 road games vs. a right-handed starter.  In fact, the Rangers are 34-77 in their last 111 road games vs. a right-handed starter.

Hunter Brown has allowed just 3 hits on 16 at bats against Texas.  Though a small sampling, it amounts to .188.  He's also a right-hander and the Under is 8-1 in the Rangers last 9 road games versus a right-handed starter plus the Under in this series is 14-5, all of which is highlighted above.

More reason to consider the Under in Saturday's game: Houston Astros career statistics vs. Jon Gray: They are just 8 of 40 at bats without a home run.  Gray currently owns a 3.00 ERA.
