Take on it Maria or yours, and I want to hear from Texas. Well, it was during the all star break. The Commissioner of baseball. Rob Manfred made some comments about Mike trout regarding the superstars popularity calling, saying trout that gains to make a decision to engage in efforts to expand his brand and trout himself. Short baseball fans says no beef between him and the Commissioner says, he just wants to get back to playing. I think that the whole idea of there being a back and forth, thirteen man for trout got a little bit overblown. Yeah. No, that's not what happened. Rob Manfred was just answering a question Karang, but let us put that aside for the moment. There is however, this notion that the fifteenth or twentieth most famous basketball player could walk in his door right now. Everyone in the room which start taking pictures with them. But Mike. Trout would walk in here and half. The people wouldn't know who he was. That is obviously a problem what can be done about it. Well, the first problem is that basketball player gets to shoot as many times as he wants. He gets he's every single play. Mike trout only gets to hit every nine in every nine guys. So every three innings he hits. So that's the first issue with baseball. Second issue is we play every single day. Mike trout doesn't wake up in the morning saying, how can I build my brand today have helped major league baseball get worldwide. He wakes up and says, man, I gotta get three hits tonight, and I don't even know what city I'm in because we're playing twenty straight games and on three different road road cities. And he just doesn't have the time to be a brand ambassador, like some of these other players in basketball and football. That's an interesting way of looking at there is of course a long off season where you can do stuff like that. If you want to at doesn't seem to be his style. He's not that type of person, and there's nothing wrong with that. But Jaylen your thoughts. Again, I think there was a study that I saw that suggested that Kenneth. Read has the same q. rating in America as my trout. And that's that's pretty telling if you look at it and also I think the lions have gotten blurred these days in particular social media and the twenty four hour news cycle. The difference between being famous and a superstar for me how you perform. If you're one of the best at what you do that automatically makes you a superstar. Now, everything that comes with it like you just mentioned if he's playing one hundred sixty two games and he has all of these obligations from his day job, he really doesn't have the time like a basketball player, for example, where we get months off to actually plan to build your brand or the same with an NFL player. So I think that works against baseball and in the United States is the third most popular sport behind basketball and football. Think in that same article that you read it settlement twenty two percent of Americans know who might trout is, but I think that some of the issues that you're running into with baseball is that the younger generation. It's not binding to it as much. And I think there's some opportunities there to find different ways like should you be on g. q.? Are there ways that you can Mark at him and I think the league could help with that. The Eidos can help with that and it's not selfish ambition. At the end of the day, it's for the sport. It can only grow the sport and by the way, can I give you a fun fact? Do you know how the angels acquired Mike trap? He's laughing because he knows go ahead and tell them the compensation pick when I signed with the Yankees. Exactly, right. Joe's drafted Mike trout as compensation pick from the Yankees for losing Mark Tisch era as a free agent. Wow..
