"He checked off the night before instead of looking day of being in the moment, but it's not all him. It's the, it's the whole. It's the, it's the front office. Also the general manager there. They're all it's a whole team may laying in agreed and and no one wants to make. The call. It's like Hollywood. No one wants to make the mistake of the thing that fails. So they rather like go with the safe choice of Sunday. But the truth is you go back and you look at those San Francisco Giants winning one with Madison Bumgarner. They just work that guy into the ground there. Like he's the guy we got. He's the guy who's gonna take, it's gonna problems, three games, shit, tough guy from North Carolina, right? Raised on Zach. Elephantiasis backyard, raised on motorbike races, no, but like you look at, you look at Kershaw and you say, why wasn't he starting that game? Why didn't Kershaw start? And if he gets into a little trouble, then you bring you Darvish, you know, that's a big question that's gonna follow. Dave Roberts around in less the dodgers can get back to the world. I believe they can. I believe they can put together a mini run at the end. And then actually, like you said, the cubs are struggling a little bit who's to say the dodgers don't make it through again, who's zoo. The dodgers don't face the Astros again. And then finally, right? All the wrongs that happened and we don't even know who's going to get in the playoffs thing. It's like you don't dodgers may not pick a World Series right now. Pick me a World Series. I mean, that's to me if you're. You were to ask me if rice I'm pulling for the cubs. Okay. I'm I'm loyal to the Chicago friends in that thing. So you think the cubs are probably gonna head bad, not a bad choice? Not thinking they are. I'm putting out my, I'm still have to go meet with the team. I have to be honest, I have to focus on the positive, right, and I, I'm not wanna. I'm an insider. Yeah, I, I have access to information beyond numbers. You like Jesse Ventura.

There's there's you gotta have that that you gotta go for like Tommy Lasorda like Joe Torry. You got Tony LaRussa. I thought Lasorda back in the day was like that. The one tough guy on the west coast was like, we gotta give it back to the east coast eight, an Italian restaurant. Like with mobsters every night, you know, that's what you need it. You LA you needed like a Tommy Lasorda character. The baseball bunch. He was old school here the wizard today. You're not allowed to yell. You're not allowed to do anything. He he, he picked up on energies? Yeah, a lot of these guys, they don't. It is about numbers. Yes and analytics. And this guy's not gonna swing in an ochre WDBO and this and that. Yeah, but then you also need balls. You also need guys who care because a lot of guys believe it or not, probably don't care. That's that's so true. All right. So I'm asking you right now. Guns had cubs national who who in the American League who makes it through. It looks like the Red Sox are so cubs Red Sox, which to me would be a fantastic. Two best parks in all of baseball.
