Listen: Cuyler Murray, Baseball And NFL discussed on WEEI at Night
"Visted? Now, our our. We begin with this something that we have long predicted on this show. It became a formality today in the NFL Tyler Murray put out on his Twitter account that is now former Heisman winning quarterback at Oklahoma Cuyler Murray, then he is only focusing on football and he's geared up for the NFL scouting. Combine at the end of the month. In indianapolis. Here's the reality for Cuyler Murray. He's making the right decision. If it doesn't work out. Maybe he doesn't have success that the NFL level and he still wants to play baseball. Well, guess what he can go back to baseball if he chooses to do just that Tim tebow playing baseball right now. Kyle Murray, we'll have way better NFL career than Tim tebow. The league is changed. The idea that a quarterback under six foot? Can't be successful. Just not the case anymore. Cuyler murray. I believe with the right coaching the right scheme the right bit. He could win because he's accurate. You get throw from the pocket, and the fact that. Lincoln Riley coach Baker Mayfield. And now coach Cuyler Murray. I think that's ultimately going to help Murray now with the strap process the good news for any team. That already has a quarterback in place is that kind of Murray is focusing on just but ball bureau team like the jets or the cardinals or the raiders, maybe the raiders who knows what gruden's gonna deal if you have your quarterback already in place, and you're picking at the top of the draft just like the jets and that make a tree with coast last year to get Sam darnold you're now in prime position to have another team that interested in taking a quarterback you can now trae down get more for that. We know Haskins considered the top quarterback on the board. So now you put Murray in the mix drew lock in the mix. You might have three guys that all go in the top fifteen summer saying Murray to me is definitely going top fifteen and with the way there's demand at the quarterback position Cuyler Murray could easily go in the top ten. Would it be surprised at all smart to take the money in football HOGAN? A four year contract guaranteed. Once he gets drafted in the first round baseball. He's riding a bus in the minor leagues. Come on. If you wants to play baseball he could play baseball right now. I'm with Tyler Murray. Right move right time focusing on football changing to baseball got a lot of heat on Twitter for one of my takes today. But you know, what Justin Verlander set the same thing. Justin Burland or the star pitcher of the Houston Astros. Sweet tweeted about baseball's free agent system being broken. It was his tweet quote a hundred or so free agents left onside this system is broken. They blame rebuilding, but that's Bs. You're telling me, you couldn't sign Bryce or Manny for ten years and go from there seems like a good place to start a rebuild to me. Twenty six through thirty six is a great performance window too. I with Justin Verlander, and I've said this a lot and today, I put it out there that hey, it's February eleven Harper Machado, Dallas kaikal, kimbrel Marlin Gonzales, moose dacas. They're all still free agents. You have over a hundred guys that are still free agents. Something is not right. I understand that some guys think they might be worth a lot more than they actually are. But when this many guys are available for the second straight year. This system is broken. Something has to be done. We're headed towards a lockout in baseball. If this continues Bryce Harper and Manny Machado or twenty six okay? You don't want to give them a ten year deal. How about an eight year deal? Pay him a lot of money because you know, why by the end of that contractor thirty four or if you do go ten years there thirty six as Berlinger said, I mean, it's enough of this idea that oh, well, you don't need the pay guys anymore or teams don't have money to pay. It's nonsense. Every. Team has money. Every team got a ton of money from the TV deals. Every team got a lot of money last year from the band tech deal teams have money and they're not spending. Not enough teams are trying to win. That's an issue when you have thirty major league clubs and to twenty year old superstars are on the open market, and there's two or three teams that are interested in signing them. It's called supply and demand. There should be way. More demand for these two stars. And that doesn't even include the other guys I mentioned kaikal kimbrel. More win dacas. It's enough. It really is something a really bad. Look for baseball all round you want to say. Okay. JD Martinez didn't sign until late last year. Okay. He was one guy. What's the excuse for Machado Harper? And all the other guys, it's a bad system. I understand that every guy can get a ten year three hundred million dollar contract advocating for that. But not enough teams are trying to win not every team could be the Astros or the cubs and tank their way to World Series. Does it work if everyone's tank, college basketball, Virginia and North Carolina? Have reached the half Virginia is up thirty six twenty nine. The rankings came out today, though, Tennessee remains the number one ranked team in the nation Ducas number to get Zaka fresh off their victory over St Mary's with a crush them their number three. I mentioned Virginia stays at four Kentucky at five Michigan at six Nevada at seven UNC underway right now with Virginia. Of course. They're right eighth. Houston the Cougars. You h in the top ten the ranked number nine they moved up three spots from last week in rounding out your top ten is Marquette. All right. We move forward. Here. Magic johnson. Yesterday was asked before the Sixers took on the Lakers in Philadelphia. Later. Steam, president Magic Johnson was asked if the pelicans negotiated in good faith. This was his response. No. We knew that. And we knew when we first started a."
