"He did. So at twenty five pounds lighter apart of cutting carbs and sugar from his diet after undergoing second heart surgery in six years Jackson said he feels much better. And he thinks that elite even better results Alden Gonzales there, you also Tim curtain mentioned what they're saying about Cuyler Murray the Heisman winner this week announcing he was choosing football over baseball ESPN analyst, Mark Teixeira. I think it's a great idea for for Kyla Murray. Great decision. And this is the thing, you know, people just assume that oh your first round draft pick in baseball. You're gonna make it and you're gonna make tens of millions of dollars. Most first rounders don't even make the big leagues. So you take collar merge who hasn't played a lot of baseball. He's been been focused mostly on football in his career. And you just throw them into the minor leagues. You never know if he's going to make it. So I think collar made the right decision here. How long usually of a journey on average is it to get there. There's somebody like Collor Murray that would probably start in a ball. It's a three or four year journey. For him. I was a little bit further. I I spent one year in the minors. But I was played football. I didn't have that kind of that kind of gift. I was laser focused on baseball played every summer played every fall in my college team. I mean collar Murray's been busy doing other things.

Unfortunately, he's his side to go. Someone were too fast. Tracked him a little more than others. I mean, you can't just put them up there and say, boy, I hope he does well, but maybe a little quicker than I believe if there was a question if the as are sitting there on the last day of spring training saying it's Cuyler Murray, or it's a, you know, journeymen fourth outfielder they're going to go with Colin Murray. And so he wouldn't have been quote, unquote, fast-tracked he would have gotten the benefit of the doubt every step of the way, though, the Oakland A's do retain Cuyler Murray's, right?
