I am Matt Verteram alongside Gilberto Manzano, as is the case every single Wednesday. And Gilberto, look, first things first. Here's the good news. We still have our jobs. The bad news is some people with the Raiders do not. Now, maybe if you're a Raiders fan, maybe that's not bad news. Maybe that's great news. I don't know. I'm not I'm not part of Raider nation. I would imagine that the frustrations at an all time high. You have covered the Raiders in the past as a Team Beat guy. They are now looking at Antonio Pierce as their interim head coach because Josh McDaniels is gone. Dave Ziegler gone as the general manager. And so we'll see who takes over that post eventually. This is not exactly new to the Raiders. This has been a revolving door, whether it was Jack Del Rio at one point, a head coach, or it was John Gruden or it was Tony Soprano or it was, I mean, on and on and on and on, you know, Mike Mayock at GM. And you can just keep filling in the names. None of them lasted that long. And so now the Raiders mid -season firing, of course, because it's happened with Gruden under different circumstances. Gruden, essentially, they had to move off of immediately. McDaniels are moving off of because he just flat can't coach. What are your thoughts on the Raiders and what happened essentially at like midnight for most of the country, these two out the door? Yeah, you know, I'll start there. It was like, I think, 10 p .m. on the West Coast. So, you know, I was still up trying to enjoy the last couple hours of Halloween. And Matt, I was watching the original Friday the 13th. I was carving a pumpkin. I had like maybe, you know, 50, you know, chocolate bars. You know, I was stuffed and I saw this from Adam Schefter. And I'm like, oh, okay. I was a little surprised. Mark Davis actually did it 25 games into the hiring of Josh McDaniels, which I think we all could say, yeah, it was a bad hiring a year and a half ago. But shocking that Mark Davis actually did it before the second year was over. And this guy, what, a month ago told a fan at SoFi Stadium, smart enough, smart enough, you can't fire Josh McDaniels. And all of a sudden you're the one that got smart enough. OK, I don't know. I have a lot of emotions about that, you know, the way it played out. But, you know, I wanted to give you my reaction about how I caught this on Halloween Eve. And I'm sure people on the East Coast, you're two hours ahead of me, Matt. So I don't know if you caught it right away, but a lot of people were sleeping and they woke up. So you probably like at midnight, OK, what the heck happened here? But I'll start there. I was just shocked that Mark Davis did it, but it was a right call. I Yeah, figured you'd do it after the season. But it's funny because I was assigned the Monday night game. And so the Raiders are playing the Lions and I'm sitting there and I'm thinking, like, what can I write about this game? I mean, the Lions are just rolling up and down the field. But like I've written about the Lions. I've been in a few of their games this year in person. I was like, look, there's not I feel like we're not learning anything about the Lions. They're a good team. And the Raiders are sitting there in Grappola, throwing for like 40 yards through three quarters and just hideous football. Adams is frustrated. McDaniels is just looking at his face like he knows the end might be near. And I said to our editor, John Bloom, I said, you know. How about I just write a piece that I just say they should fire McDaniels and just bench Garoppolo and be done with this? And we then both kind of agreed like, well, that's all right. You know, it's early. We'll pass on it, whatever. And we ended up not writing anything about the game because the game is kind of just a non story. And I was joking with John this morning. My God, we should have wrote that piece would have been the most prescient people in the country. I didn't think it was going to happen the next day. But I mean, what a what a just absolute tire fire. Look, Josh McDaniels. Is a terrible head coach, and he showed that in Denver, like he not only was bad in Denver, he ran guys out the door. You know, Jay Cutler gone, Brandon Marshall gone. Josh McDaniels from afar has the syndrome of being the smartest guy in the room. And he's not the smartest guy in the room. Not saying he can't be a coordinator. Had plenty of success as a coordinator with Brady. And I don't know if he could be a coordinator without Tom Brady. He had plenty of success with him. Josh McDaniels was a disaster in Denver. He quit on the Colts before he even got started with the Colts. And now you look at this Raiders tenure. They never got any traction. They blew a million big leads last year. They went six and 11 after making the playoffs. I might add the year prior. Runs their car out of town, runs Darren Waller out of town. Hunter Renfro is barely playing. And now you're sitting here in the three and five, and they're not even as good as a three and five record would indicate. They have not played well all year long. I just think the Raiders going forward here. It now becomes a matter of. How do you fix the process of finding the right guys? Because Mark Davis has not found the right guys over and over and over like this starts with him. You could fire the coach in the GM all you want. Mark Davis has been a failure of an owner since he took over for the late great Al Davis, of course, his father. That's where this thing starts. Like, does he bring in an outside firm to do these hirings? Because I think that's where this has to go at this point. He has proven he cannot make these hirings with any kind of success rate. Yeah, man, you know, I'm concerned about, you know, Mark Davis just, you know, being kind of a you know, he cares about what the public perception is. OK, what are they saying out there? And that's why he went off on that fan. And so if I say I'm saying smart enough and I'm like, why do you care? Let the guy just say whatever he has to say. And then you're the one running the show here. You know, you're the one has to make the smart decision for the team. And yes, he did the right call. Let him go. Josh McDaniel's. But his two last hirings, he wanted a big name. He wanted a big name with John Gruden. You already went down that road. You give the guy a 10 year contract like, you know, I think you want to make you want to make a splash. You're going to Las Vegas like that didn't sit right with me. And obviously that that went sideways for different reasons. And the same thing with Josh McDaniel's. You're going to get headlines regardless. Like, yeah, you know what happened with the Colts briefly with the handshake. And then you bail out and then what happened in Denver? Like these are all red flags for the guy. And you still go because you want to try to copy the picture away. That's the biggest thing right there, man. You can't copy something and try to replicate it. And that's kind of the worst way to do it, too. So, you know, and I'll say this about Josh McDaniel's, because, you know, I guess my rule and I get why you want to write that piece. But and I get what you guys decide is a little too soon, because it did feel a little too soon. But it was a right situation because Josh McDaniel's background is offense. And that is a horrendous offense. I think he's put out there. And reason number two, man, it was his guys. He finally said, you know what, Derek Carr, different regime. Let me get Jimmy G and I don't know what the story is about Jimmy G's being the number one, two or three option. Who cares? You picked them. You brought them in with Dave Ziegler and all these Patriot guys came in. And you're still that bad. Josh Jacobs was a reigning champion a year ago, and he's rushing for like two point four yards per carrier, something pretty bad. So that's your background. And the other the third point, Matt, you always need a scapegoat. And the defense has been playing pretty well. Patrick Graham cannot take the fall when his defense is actually producing. It's your office, your guys. So see you later. Yeah, I mean. I'm to the point with the Raiders. I'm thirty five. I know you're essentially the same age as me. They've sucked my entire life, say, for like three or four years with Rich Cannon. OK, and that's not that sounds like I'm just like taking some cheap shot out. My point is you got to do something differently. I mean, it's some juncture. You know, the Raiders have this weird pride about like who they are. That was great in the 70s and 80s. You there don't should be no pride in who you are now. You've been a losing friend. You've you've been the Lions for 30 years. You've been the Browns. That's who you've been. I mean, everybody talks about the Raiders like this is some unbelievable gold standard of a franchise. Yeah, it wasn't the 70s and 80s. It's not anymore. It hasn't been for a long time. I mean, they have not won a playoff game since the twenty two season. Two thousand and two. You're talking over 20 years now. And most of those years have been non -competitive. And you're now looking at this thing going, all right, look, you need a quarterback, you need a coach, you need a GM. That is that is a lot in a division where you're looking up at Patrick Mahomes and in a conference where you're looking up at not only Mahomes, but at Burrow and Allen and Lawrence and potentially the ascension of Tua and all these other guys. Lamar, right? And all these guys. They have miles to go, which leads me to this. I don't know how you feel about this. We haven't talked about this for a show. At the end of this season, I would trade Devante Adams and I would trade Max Crosby for as much draft capital as I could possibly get, because by the time they're really good, Adams isn't going to be there anymore. And by the time they're really good, I don't know what you're getting out of Max Crosby. Like those guys both fetch first rounders plus right now, maybe even multiple first rounders. Like if I'm them and I'm the GM there, man, I know it's going to be a rough couple of years. I get it. I would trade both those guys for the highest possible value I could get. Yeah. And you know, the concerning part about Mark Davis being so quick with the firing. Like, does he want like a quick fix? Like you think this roster is ready to win now? Yeah, you got Devante, Max Crosby and Josh Jacobs, three guys that are pretty good at the position, but you need a full teardown. Go get the draft picks like you mentioned, Matt. And, you know, and actually do a hiring where you're not trying to copy the old silver and black way or copy the Patriot way. Like find your own identity. Mark Davis, like, like it's been many years now, over a decade, your dad hasn't been around and you know, you can't copy things that you can't go with for the big name. You don't want to try to keep up with your, your, your owner friends and say, look at who I got here. And look how much money I'm getting on Las Vegas. Like the other bad thing too, like seeing the, the, the allegiance state of being taken over by the opposing fans. Like you're, you're the Raiders. You have fans all over your Raider nation. So even that part is really bad for where Mark Davis is doing. So like you mentioned, you know, hire somebody from the outside to help you out because you haven't been doing it right. Credit for owning your mistake and eating the money from the Gruden contract and now with Josh McDaniels, but enough with the copying, the quick fix, like I'm with you a hundred percent tear down this roster. Like, like yesterday, what are the Broncos doing? Keeping all these players, like go get the draft picks and do a full rebuild. So a lot of heads crashing moves. It's weird. Like the dovetail on the Bronx, that's actually a perfect segue into this, this next topic we're going to have here last. I'll say on the Raiders by the way, and all these things enough with the Patriot way, you know what the Patriot way was? It was Belichick and Brady. That's the Patriot way. So unless you're, you're turning back time, 20 years, it's not going to work. The Broncos though, you know, we want to talk about the NFL trade deadline, which of course was on Tuesday, winners and losers go. You did a great piece, man. I'm breaking that all down. I encourage people to check that out. I agree with you. Just about everything you wrote. It was excellent. Um, I sat there and thought the same thing you just said about Denver. What is the point of keeping all these guys like, do they think because they beat the chiefs in that game, that they're a contending team now? I mean, I don't know if, let me save everybody to suspense and drama. I sat through every snap of that football game. If you told me the chiefs had money on Denver, I'd be like, that makes sense. I could see that that was the worst game I've seen them play in the Mahomes era. And I'm not trying to gain away from Denver, but I'm going to be honest. That was not because Denver was some juggernaut in that football game. The Broncos went an average of 33 yards per touchdown drive.

I forgot to mention on Tuesday's pod, we put up a new rewatchables on Monday. We did So I Married an Axe Murderer, one of my favorite nineties comedies, and it was me and Sean Fennesey and Chris Ryan. We had a great time. I put up a lot of content this week because we had the three part NBA under podcast as well with Rossello and House. Did Sunday's pod, had this pod. Sorry for all the content. It's a lot of me, a lot of talking. I do have some Ringer news for you. Austin Rivers. Yeah. He is spinning off onto his own feed that is called Off Guard. It's Austin Rivers and Pasha. They've moved on Tuesdays and Fridays. They're going to be putting up podcasts. Make sure you follow it on Spotify. Also in that Ringer NBA show feed, the group chat podcast, which is excellent with Barrier and Woz and Mahoney, they're going to be going now basically Sunday, late morning, early afternoon -ish and then Wednesdays. So they're moving to twice a week. So that's our basketball news. Also, we had our first true crime pod, the first Ringer true crime pod we've ever done. Justin Sales, my guy, New Englander, still kept the accent. One of our finest. And he pitched us this really, really, really great seven part series about how he got scammed. That is what episode one is about. And it just keeps going. It keeps going, gets weirder, gets weirder. There's no way you're not going to like it if you like true crime. So check it out. It's called Wedding Scammer. It is the Ringer's first true crime podcast. I also went on Jimmy Trainor's podcast this week. So if you want to hear me talk about me, which I hate usually, but I did it on that podcast. I'm on there as well. Coming up on this podcast, Howard Beck from the Ringer talking about John Morant, James Harden, some other stealth storylines heading into opening night on Tuesday. And then Million Dollar Picks, feeling really good about the Million Dollar Picks this week. And then Arno Hwani, our guy, talking Knicks, talking Bills, talking the big UFC event this week, talking about the influencer boxing thing he did last week and some WWAW stuff. And then I thought I'd end the podcast there. No, no, because we launched a new segment that we're probably spinning off into another podcast. We talk about it during the segment, but Amanda Dobbins came on to talk about The Morning Show, which is the worst good show on TV. It's either the best bad show on TV or the worst good show on TV. Just make sure worst is somewhere in there. It is just inexplicable. It's unbelievable. I can't stop watching every episode. I hate myself for it. Amanda and I are gonna break down all the reasons why we just can't believe the show exists. That is the podcast. First, our friends from ProGip. Show"] ["The Morning All right, Howard Beck is here. He works for The Ringer. We love having him. We're gonna talk some NBA storylines. I did four hours of NBA preview content on with Monday Priscillo and House, and it already feels like seven things have happened since we did that. The biggest one was ESPN wrote a huge story about John Marrant. It's written by Baxter Holmes and who was the other one? Tim McMahon? Yeah, that they reported for a while. Tim McMahon. The timing of it was interesting, heading into the week of the season. I also thought Jaa's absence was being slept on a little bit, especially when we're talking about The Futures, where I think their over -under was like 44 and a half, 45 and a half, and I was like, Jaa's gone for 25 games? This feels like a big deal. Plus, what are we getting when he comes back? And you read that story, and it was mostly stuff that had been around or stuff that was out there. There was some unflattering stuff in there, but in general, I left that story going, hmm. Now the narrative is going to be this story was out there. There's a bigger spotlight on, but now it's actually a little bit better for Jaa in a way, because the attention, now you can kind of use that. Nobody believes in me that this is, I don't know. I was wondering, how do you think that story and the whole blow around it affects him and his comeback? Well, it's interesting. By the way, I'm only about 90 minutes into your five -hour marathon on the over -under. Yeah, maybe over the weekend. But I listen to pods while they wash dishes or while I'm on the treadmill. I'm gonna just have to, I need more dirty dishes and I need to get into better shape. And by the time the end of the week, I'll be through it. No, I mean, you were right to flag that, right? Ja Morant, not there on media day. So he still has not spoken to anybody in the media, to the public in general, since this 25 -game suspension was handed down by Adam Silver, that the story came out now. Look, I haven't talked to our friends at ESPN about reporting the process and everything else, but those things take time. I don't think anybody should read into it that it dropped now, it's relevant now. We're going into seasons opening up next week and one of their brightest young stars won't be there under really unique and troubling circumstances. Well, it seems like they also talk to every local business owner in Memphis because there was a bunch of them. So you could tell they worked on it for months and months. For sure. And by the way, neither of those guys is Memphis -based. I think like McMahon has responsibility for a lot of teams and Memphis might be one of his and Baxter is just kind of more like all -purpose investigative guy. So if you're not based there, so there's the first challenge. As I'm reading this as a reporter, my first thought is like, wow, either somebody pointed you in the right direction, like you need to go talk to this restaurant owner or this might've been strip club owner, this bar owner, whoever. Cause if not, you're just kind of making the rounds and trying to get a fee. Like you could do that. You could do a lot of just like the shoe leather reporting, but that's tough when you're not based there and you don't have that local network of people. They talked to obviously some really important voices there. People who knew not just the on -court version of this or what the internal politics of the Grizzlies are, but how he's being perceived in the community. And it also tracks Bill with a lot of the other incidents that have been reported on in the last six to eight months, right? It's not just issues with, obviously flashing guns is the big thing right now, but it's not even just issues with how he's conducting himself within the organization with teammates or coaches or team officials. Social media judgment. Social media judgment, but the attitude or the entitlement issues that seem to present themselves with these local business owners, who I think we're all speaking anonymously, tracks with a lot of the stuff that was like the shoe store incident, the mall incident and all these other things, right? There's a pattern here. And so I think the story is really valuable in that sense. It's giving us a more full picture that this is an ongoing issue on a variety of levels, even including just the way he carries himself around Memphis. The other thing that struck me, yeah. Well, there was one piece in there. I knew most of this stuff or I had heard secondhand, but I think the people like us, we just talk to a lot of people. So you get a general vibe of where things are going or what things are happening. The one thing that was in the story that I never really thought about, one of the anonymous owners was saying, and this guy was the biggest celebrity we've had since Elvis. And I read that and I did like a double take and I'm like, is that true? And I'm thinking about it. I'm like, yeah, that's probably true. Like who, it's not like any of the, they had Zebo, they had Pau Gasol, they had Derrick Rose when he was at the University of Memphis. But for the most part, I hadn't really thought of it that way. And then you think like this young, kick -ass, incredibly fun to watch star just drops in their lap as like the consolation prize in the Zion draft and then becomes what he becomes in a small city and just becomes the guy. And I guess I'd never really wrap my head around that. But when I read that, did you do a double take when you saw that? I did and I guess I chuckled a little bit because it's just such a like, whoa, wait, hold on. Well, cause we're old enough to remember when Elvis died, that was like the biggest thing that happened in 1977.
"25 games" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"That wasn't the kind of statement that sounded to me like someone that was preparing to appeal. It goes along with what I'm saying. When I say collaborative, the NBA issued its multi -paragraph statement on Friday morning. That was immediately followed by a statement from Ja Morant that was obviously prepared. That was immediately followed by a short statement from the Memphis Grizzlies. So it seemed like it was at the very least in concert. However you want to phrase it, it just seemed like it wasn't just the NBA saying, here it is, guys, here's a suspension. I do think it's a fair suspension at worst and a light suspension at best and a light suspension at worst. I don't think you can look at this and say Ja Morant is being excessively punished. I mean, Ja Morant had an incident where he carried a gun into a Denver nightclub on Instagram Live. The NBA gave him a chance and slapped him on the wrist. Then less than two months later, he went out and did almost the exact same thing again. That's flaunting it to your employer. It has nothing to do with the legality of what Ja Morant did. It has nothing to do with laws in Tennessee or in Colorado that say what he did might have been within the boundaries of those. The NBA has broad powers when it comes to conduct detrimental to the league. That's where they are punishing Ja Morant under that umbrella. This 25 -game suspension, it feels pretty fair to me. It feels like the kind of thing that if you're on Ja Morant's side, maybe you let the union do its thing and put up the public fight for you. But at the end of the day, this is the kind of suspension I suspect that Ja Morant will accept and try to move on from. Yeah, I don't think anybody can realistically sit with a straight face and say that Ja was hosed here.
"25 games" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"I'm Chris Mannix, senior writer with Sports Illustrated joined by my colleague Chris Herring, senior writer with SI New York Times best selling author of Blood in the Garden. And Chris, we want to jump on here on a Friday afternoon because one of the all time Friday afternoon news dumps, or I guess Friday morning news dumps came from the NBA, where the league announced its suspended Ja Morant for 25 games beginning of course next season. Ja Morant subsequently released a statement apologizing, it's a three paragraph statement, won't read the whole thing, but saying he was going to work on himself, his mental health and continue to train for the day when he's allowed back on the courts. So let's start with the punishment itself. I believe I said last week on the show that I thought it would be 30 games. This was kind of right around where I thought it would be a little bit light, but what was your take on the NBA's 25 game suspension? Yeah, actually hearing you kind of lay out what you'd started to hear on your end started to prompt me to start thinking more about the fact that the league was going to go lighter than what I think a lot of us were expecting, is that we initially were looking at maybe closer to half the season, maybe even slightly more than that. And I think it was about the way a lot of us perceived Adam Silver's tone, certainly right after he was asked about it by Malika Andrews. It almost became almost like, we talked about this on the podcast last week, a little bit of a tour. It wasn't so much like a Ja Morant focused tour, it was just Adam Silver promoting the finals, really. But obviously he was going to be asked about this, whether it was Dan Patrick or you name it. This was the first thing on everybody's mind. And I think what you raised on the podcast a couple of days ago was really that the league wasn't looking to really broach a fight here with the players union, quite frankly.
Cole tosses 2-hitter with 10 Ks as Yanks blank Twins 2-0
"The Yankees Garrett call became the major league's first four game winner by shutting out the twins to nothing. Call gave up just two hits and one walk while fanning ten to race his record to four zero in a complete game performance, lowering his ERA to 0.95. We're facing like a great team and a great pitcher. So just more satisfied with the win. DJ lemieux who gave Cole all the offensive support he needed with an RBI single in the third and a solo home run in the 6th off Pablo Lopez who suffered his first loss of the season.

"Matt Pittman with more. With the playoffs just around the corner, the warriors are getting a huge piece of last season's champion chimp team back at the right time. Wiggins stayed with them at the foul line Tatum fade away jumper. When he's got a piece of it. Watch tremendous on ball defense. You can't do it any better. Bob Fitzgerald's called during last season's NBA Finals where Wiggins was a star helping the dubs win the NBA championship. Wiggins has been away from the team for over 48 days he'll wind up having missed the final 25 games of the regular season and the team has missed his perimeter defense and the 17 points per game average all as he has been dealing with what's only been described as a family emergency we learned a little bit more. There was an illness in the Wiggins family rejoining the team this week, the famously private and soft spoken Wiggins, was appreciative of the support he received while away. It was all this love and support. I had a lot of the teammates just hitting me up and saying their love and their prayers. As he works his way back into game shape for the playoffs, head coach Steve Kerr has been encouraged with what he's seen from Wiggins in practice, he'll be getting more work in the next few days, and performance staff is monitoring everything.

"25 games" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Bloomberg business of sports show where we explore the big money issues of the world of sports. I'm Michael Barr, along with Scarlett foo and Damien sassou, we're listening in on the conversation, our colleagues, Matt Miller, and Paul Sweeney had with two time Super Bowl champ Eli Manning. He's a partner at brand velocity group and was joined by a bvg founding and managing partner Steve liebert. A lot of former athletes are diving into business and investing after they're playing careers are over. We talked with another legendary former NFL quarterback over the summer. Joe wiseman. Now he's gotten big into finance after his playing career and talked to us about some of his investing strategies. I look at all different types of opportunities. I mean, I've traded crypto. I made the decision to get out before everything went south. I mean, the market will, the market will entice you and that it will disappoint you. And the question is, is when do you make a decision to either cut your losses or take your profits and step to the sidelines and stand there and wait and analyze what's going on? That was Joe theismann on the business of sports over the summer. Now let's get back to Eli Manning, joined by BBG founding and managing partner Steve leibowitz with our colleagues Matt Miller and Paul Sweeney. Steve, what do you think, you know, partnering up with a guy that has accomplished as Eli is in many walks of life. What does that bring to your firm to and kind of how do you look to kind of leverage that? Well, the first thing I'll say is that Eli is an incredibly humble person. And he is the same person in private that he is in public, which that's critical, because for us, like culture is everything. And Eli is just perfect fit with our culture. Eli, his passion for the culture, the companies, for everybody loves Eli. So when Eli believes in Tom Brady, Trump Tom Brady's parents probably as well. A few super bowls taken away there between Eli and Peyton. But we love his connectivity. I mean, and everybody loves him and when he says it, he's saying what the truth and what he believes. So it just really fits well with what we want to do and getting our message out with share the gains. We view that as very important. We thank private equity often companies aren't made of spreadsheets. They're made of people and private equity often loses sight of that. And Eli is a big believer in the message. He really can get that message out and our hope is to really make an impact through that message. Let's talk about the Manning cast because all of my buddies demanding cash, that is fun. Everybody loves to watch it. It's a new format, and it's something that I thought this was going to something like this was going to happen ten years ago. And nobody ever really did it right until you guys have done it. What's been your experience? How do you get into it? Yeah, I mean, I think we got into it just the idea we saw Curt herb street broadcasting the game because he had COVID. He couldn't be at the game, so he didn't. He's often at the Ohio State university. So he just did it from home and kind of talking with Payton to save him a week. I want to broadcast games from home. That sounds pretty good. Sitting on my couch, watching football, making fun of my brother. Like, that sounds like a good job. And you're like, pay me for it. Like, yeah, I mean, I know I went the old miss, but I know a good deal when I see one. And so that was the idea and really just saying, hey, what would it be like if Peyton and I were in your living room watching the game? How would we watch it? We're not going to talk about the first and ten run for two yards and tell you where the running back went to college. We don't know that answer. We don't know where you went to college and you probably don't care either. So let's bring in some guests, have it fun. We'll talk some X's and those, tell you what's going through the quarterback's mind right now. How should they handle this situation? Have Peyton calls 67 timeouts, you know, when Denver needs a call a timeout and so it's really just kind of having fun and in a different way to watch the game. And you guys get a great list of guests that come in. I mean, it's super eclectic. How does that all come about? Well, I think you realize there's so many people that have a passion for sports that have a passion for football and they grew up with a certain team and we use so we try to bring in people that are associated with one of the two teams playing that night and whether it's Barack Obama or Snoop Dogg and them talking about the 80s Chicago bear 85 Chicago Bears or the Steelers of the 70s with Snoop Dogg and he's listening players and he grew up watching so kinda Lisa rice talking about the browns. I mean, you have so many people that have a passion for their hometown football team and for them to kind of talk about that and get it out. It's natural for them and we have fun and we don't ask any hardball questions like you guys are asking today we try to keep it pretty simple. So you guys, you guys, you've been so busy since leaving the NFL. You have a job like a day job with the Giants and you're doing the Manning casted in the private equity places. Exactly. So how's the Eli's place is going to play out? Are you going to keep doing those? We got to decide. I got to talk with big bro and I'm up for a contract. So I'll have to have some tough discussions with him. But you really have and Peyton as well developed a knack for broadcasting and a way that a lot of athletes can't. Are you going to be appearing in Hollywood movies? Is there any plan for what's your agent said? I don't consider myself a broadcaster, by the way. I think they have a, I don't think I would have been good at broadcasting in the typical way of being in studio and booth and doing those things. I think the fact that I could sit on my couch, you know, just talk football, keep it very casual, fits more style for me. And so I'm enjoying what I'm doing. I enjoy the football part, staying involved in the game. I enjoy, but also learning, learning about private equity and each day in each deal we look at and company we look at, I'm learning something new and just understanding how businesses work and just the time frame of how you decide whether you want to buy a company like looking at the profit loss, looking at statements, diligence, giving a pitch, all these things were new to me, exciting for me, and I'm enjoying the process. Hey Steve, you're no slouch yourself. I mean, you went to some trade school up in Cambridge, Massachusetts

He's a partner at brand velocity group and was joined by a bvg founding and managing partner Steve liebert. A lot of former athletes are diving into business and investing after they're playing careers are over. We talked with another legendary former NFL quarterback over the summer. Joe theismann. Now he's gotten big into finance after his playing career and talked to us about some of his investing strategies. I look at all different types of opportunities. I mean, I've traded crypto. I made the decision to get out before everything went south. I mean, the market will, the market will entice you and that it will disappoint you. And the question is, is when do you make a decision to either cut your losses or take your profits and step to the sidelines and stand there and wait and analyze what's going on? That was Joe theismann on the business of sports over the summer. Now let's get back to Eli Manning.

Ron Guidry: The Incredible Team of the 1985 Yankees
"1985 you have this amazing season You had one of the most amazing lineups behind you in baseball history We're talking to Ron guidry one of the greatest pitchers in the history of baseball You had Mattingly You had wind field You had Baylor You had I was Jack Clark on that team too you had Willie Randolph I mean you had one of the most amazing pagliarulo He was like your number 7 hitter and he hit 30 home runs or something You had an incredible team That must have helped you that year Well it certainly I mean because you know when you go out I mean look every time you go out you want to pitch a shutout but it ain't going to work that way So you go out knowing that even if you have a bad game like I said and you give up three or four runs You know your team is capable of scored And if they don't then you chalk it up to a bad day Okay So the other guy did his job a little bit better than I did mine So he wins But when you go out there you always going out there knowing that you have a chance to win the game As long as you keep the game close like I said about the playoff game My job every time that I stepped out there was just keep this game close Sure I'd like to win the game because at the end of the year if I got a ten and ten but I should have won 25 games they're not going to pay me on this should have won 25 games Because I won ten That's it Gator they pay me on the ratings They don't care what the rating should have been All they care about what the ratings are gator Whatever they are today when we're talking that's how you get paid So what I want to do though I took more pride in leaving the mound known that my team was in a position to win Because after all if we win a hundred games we're going somewhere So that's right That was what's most poor sure I enjoyed winning the games but it was more important to always give my team an opportunity to win the games that I was pitching in
Ron Guidry: I Found Myself Admiring Dwight Gooden
"We're talking to Ron guidry one of the greatest pitchers in baseball history I have such fond memories when I was a kid I lived in smithtown Long Island and my dad you know life was good back then It was more innocent We would turn on this Remember there was no remotes back then You had to get up and actually change the channel and my dad had said yeah you had to actually get up and get some exercise My dad would say Daniel get up turn the volume up a little bit And I'd watch WPIX 11 and you guys would be on And I got in so many fights over you Ron My stepbrother my parents and boys are going to be married whatever But my stepbrother was a huge mets fan And in 1985 years later you come back with another monster season an incredible season in 1985 I got in so many fights over who was better You were Dwight Gooden in 1985 that I might have broken a few noses and had a few of them to broken myself just over you gator I just wanted to laugh and you know I know Dwight and Dwight's a good friend of mine and he was a spectacular picture I mean as a pitcher I was going throwing in the big league I found myself admiring what he was doing in the national league But I laughed and when I talked to him I said yeah you had that great year but when I had mine I was 35 years old and when I won 22 games You were 24 years old when you won your 24 games I was 27 when I won my 25 game So because of age my season with 22 wins wasn't as great overall as he is but it was still special to me because everybody forgets about that season Oh I remember I remember that well I went to so many games that year and I watched I must have watched you in the stadium Ten times a year You were amazing now

"Back when they were really good in paying their players, uh, before it was legal, but When Lou Holtz was at Notre Dame, You know, I totally respected that program. I thought that you know they were they deserved what they got. They deserved the talk in the highest They've got Now they're basically the Dallas Cowboys of the college ranks. Oh, no, really. Oh, no. You're going to go there, Dion, you're going to get you going to alienate a lot of Notre Dame fans. Comparing them to the Dallas Cowboys college football. The Cowboys have not been have not won a Super Bowl since the mid nineties. They haven't been doing NFC Championship game since, like 96. And you are comparing Notre Dame. To the underachieving Dallas Cowboys. Wow. Happened because I mean, look, both teams are overhyped. Both teams always get coverage, regardless of the talent that they have. Yeah, but the Cowboys aren't went in like 12 games a year and getting knocked out of the playoffs. The Cowboys aren't even doing that They lost 10 games or whatever it was last year. You know, they make the playoffs like once every four or five years. Notre Dame's gone 10 wins. 12 wins 11 wins 10 wins the last four years, Dion Against like, Really cupcake opponents to I mean, they get a A personalized schedule to make sure that they stay at a double. Did you win total every single year? I mean, they got into the sea. The hasn't been relevant since God knows when. So they only have what Clemson? That's it. All right. So you're telling me Okay? So then you're telling me they're playing a cupcake schedule. They've got. Wisconsin Cincinnati. Virginia Tech, USC, North Carolina. Stanford on the schedule that sounds cupcake deal. For the For the past few years. I'm not saying necessarily this year been saying in the past. Traditionally, they get what seems like special treatment when it comes to scheduling. Well, I think they get special treatment from the playoff committee. I think they get special treatment for them because this is a business endeavor. This is not something where these playoff committee members, you know, they can tell you they can try to convince you all you want. That its objective and they operate in a bubble or in a vacuum, and that there's not pressure externally put on them to put teams in the playoff that are going to generate buzz. And create revenue. They can tell you that all they want. I don't believe it for a second. I think if Notre Dame this year If Notre Dame goes 11 and one And their one loss isn't such a scarring. You know, jarring type defeat. Where you know there's no reconciling it or there's no rationalizing it or there's no explaining it away like if they were to if they were to lose the Toledo next week. At home in South Bend, where they've won 25 games in a row if they lost the Toledo, all right. That would I don't see how they would ever be able to overcome something like that. But if they're one losses to Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, And they lose by two and they win the rest of their games and their 11 and one I think the committee will Shoehorned them. They will jam them into the playoffs. They will make sure they're there. I think that's where the frustration comes in from fans. The tie goes to the runner in baseball. It's not even a tie that goes to Notre Dame. You know they're running 90 ft. They're three ft away from the bag, and the umpire calls him safe to make sure that they get into the playoff or they get into one of the New York New Year's six bowls over more deserving team. It's really the power of popularity is what it is. The lesson with Notre Dame is that if a lot of people care You'll get breaks. Don't want you. Even if you're not qualified. Yeah, that's that's actually that's that's immoral for like getting a job or breaking into a new career. If you know someone or people like you, that's probably going to go a longer way than how qualified you are and what you are, you know farther than what you know. So Brian Kelly last night was the Notre Dame coach was asked on the field. About, you know, just really a generic question, but a good one about how his team played how he felt about the way they played their first game. And he tried to make one of those he tried to make a John he tried to make the John McKay joke. Which if you're I don't know. Younger than 40. You probably don't get the context or don't get the reference. McKay when he was the coach of the Buccaneers when they were the worst team in N F. Maybe the worst team in NFL history before the old and 16 Lions and Browns came around. Gave some quote. Like what did you think of your team's execution today? And he said, I'm all for it or something like that. And that you know, quotas lived on for Don't know 40 years or something like that 50 years. So Kelly tried to make a joke like that last night, And I think instead he said something like, you know, we should be executed. Our players should be executed. And you could see the expression on the sideline Reporters, face or continents changed when he said that And it was not. It was totally tongue in cheek. It was a failed attempt to be funny, and I just knew when I saw it, Okay, this is going to create an uproar. And Notre Dame football is going to have to address it. And sure enough, I wake up this morning I go to Twitter, and they put out a statement. About how Kelly like I did not mean literally that I was going to take my players back to South Bend and murder them. That's where we're at. We're look in some ways, I think like sensitivity and being aware of other people's feelings.

And so whenever a lot of giddy Poku pick and roll 11 of the one of the one of the ways to guarantee losses in the NBA is to play young guards Um, you know, it's one of the more reasons why that there is 1000 reasons. Why don, which is amazing? Uh, and it's also one of the reasons why you really get impressed with guys like John Moran. You know, and Trey Young because you know it takes guards awhile. Prominent Mitchell's another one. You know, he's not? Yep, your point but still but you play too young guards. Then I know guild shells, Editors and young But you, you know, you play on guards. You mean shade just changes signed a max contract. He keys and he's at Star level player. He's playing on a terrible and look how many like how creative are there going to be with his playing time? Alright, so 22 a half to find arrest him. I I think 22 a half is a stay away. I had I'd take the under. I mean, I can understand taking the under. It's hard to be a 60 off. See, that's a lot of losses, and I think they have an All Star caliber player on their team. And look, Maybe he'll sit a ton of games. But if he's healthy, they could win 24 25 games and that's still play for I want at home and you know they get to play Friday, one at home. So right and teams are going to rest guys against them like they. That's a It's a tricky number for me. Yeah, I'm not sure Bricktown is going to be, you know, booming.

Yes, that I agree with that they Jonathan Isaac will be back, presumably, but we'll see what he looks like. They're going to have a ton of young guys plane they drafted Franz Wagner in the top 10. They have RJ Hampton, who's probably play a bunch of minutes. Who was a super young guy. They got the trip in the Aaron Gordon trade last year like they're clearly on the We're going to re build through the draft track. And you know, I just I think they're probably going to be the worst team in the league, and I think they're gonna lose a ton of games and again. Some of this goes back to if you have 12 teams in the East that are playoff quality teams. Think these teams at the bottom of the conference? Um, the tomb in particular. I think Cleveland in Orlando. Um, I think we're both going to go well under because they're just going to struggle to find games they can win. You have a lot of teams in the east that are trying.

You know what Brooklyn had, when all through. Those guys were healthy, so it would be an interesting sort of case study. Would it be truly an indication of this thing being Star League or is it still the old trope of No. The traditional teams from the population centers are the ones that drive the eyeballs of the rest of the country. To to the NBA Finals. I think people of the NFL model that anybody can win like you know, baseball. The Royals can't win, necessarily. They did win, but they couldn't young. It's all stacked against them, but the Chiefs can't You know, the Packers can win in the NFL, but the Brewers they may win one year, but they can't maintain it. And it's a stacked card game in baseball. I think this year for example, in the NBA, somebody's going to win a title. There's never won a title, right? None of these guys are none of these teams have ever won. So I think that's kind of a positive Milwaukee back in the day, But that was back in the day. I'll say I'll say this for Kareem. I'll say this as somebody rooted for the Warriors. You know my whole life. It's like there was a lot of years where it felt like The playoffs were not for us. You know what I mean? Like were that were not part of this. Like like in the idea of winning a title and being seen the Warriors in the finals was just like, Don't even dream it. I mean, don't even dream it because it's such a distant Ridiculous notion. But the fact that we saw it I mean, I think is as a positive, I think, Get all these. You know, you can't have teams and fan bases feeling like, yeah, they're going to invest their time, their money and their disposable everything into Investing in a team that has no chance to win and I so I think anything they can do to, and they have done a lot of things through time as far as making the lottery better and more even more lot and waited and so on and so forth. There are things that you know, The cap obviously has had an impact on things. Um, but I think you've got to have hope you're in pro sports. I think you're kind of selling hope. And if you have no hope. Then it's hard. That's a hard sell it But if if if you can't see people spending their hard earned money, and they're very valuable time on Dead end proposition you know, rooting for a team that's not going to win. And how do you explain Chicago Bears fans? Was that just a real cheap shot at the Chicago Bears? Absolutely. I took it. Keeps their target good hearted people and I'll say that Bull for football so different to the eight Sundays tailgating. It's more of a communal thing here, just like get eight times to go hang out with my buddies and go tailgate and all that kind of thing. But Hi. Basketball and baseball. Ban. Like if you're a D backs fan right now, How do you like just like I can't wait to get home much D'backs tonight, Congrats to but to the D backs for ending their 17 game losing streak. It's over Brewers last night. Now they got to worry about that road. Losing streak. I think they have the Padres coming up this weekend to see if they can And that one but I don't know how you would do it like it's like, what am I watching? What are you watching for?

But at least they had trout trouts worth to watch like he's He'll do something. Usually you're like, Oh, my gosh. This guy is just insane. So at least there was that But man if your team doesn't have one of those type players like a star And you're 25 games. But we're not even in July yet it's like, Oh, man like it. Catch a game every once in a while, but like, how do you keep it? Natty? Keep interest. They don't people just move on. They just move on and you go to the ballpark. If you get free tickets that is worth your time. Alright, free tickets and free parking. Got ahead of free parking lot ahead of street parking people just move on, man. Well, like, you know, like, like for a lot of people, you know, in the real decision making, um, like, you know, you're an NBA playoff game or Giants game. You know, In the years when the Giants were crap, you just go NBA playoffs And maybe you didn't. They even offer like a condensed version of the game. And some of those lousy years like you can watch the Giants like 25 minutes. Uh, you know, sometimes you got to do that. You know, it's tough to watch. Now.

"Play like 25 games or 50 games. They played a 72 game regular season, all right. It wasn't too poor lady to put in 72. That's still a pretty damn big sample and the jazz and the Sun's out played the Clippers and the Lakers and the maps and everybody else in the Western Conference. Why plenty this year? And people were dismissing their chances coming into the postseason. I was not one of them now. Personally, I like the jazz better than the Suns. They did win the regular season and they will have home court advantage throughout the entire playoffs. At least till I get to with the Gaz will throughout the entire playoffs as long as they keep winning 70 Sixers, second best team top seed in the Eastern Conference, but I thought they were being underrated coming into this playoff run and parts silly to make my point. Not only did the Suns beat the Lakers today, one of the teams that people were and Las Vegas whatever betting venue you want toe use, whichever you may frequent and or having account with Had the Lakers as a bigger favorite than even the Jazz or the sons had the Clippers of the bigger favorite than either the Jazz or the Sun's in the Eastern Conference. The Nets a bigger favorite than the Sixers, even though the Sixers ended up winning the Eastern Conference, I think the the people that do this for a living the oddsmakers Underestimated the accomplishments of teams Dourness regular season sexy when they're open your sons when their opener I very much like the Jazz to win their opener tonight. Give credit to the Grizz for making it into the postseason. Taken out the Warriors the other night, John Durant with a couple of huge clutch baskets late Left Memphis too dead to the victory. Good luck going into Utah very few teams but come out of there with a victory this year, but six of the first Eight games in this upcoming playoffs already in the books before we get to the Jazz and Grizz Tonight, you got the at Madison Square Garden. Now I grew up in New York and Madison Square Garden was Thief. First Arena back then it was the new Madison Square Garden when I was just a wee lad, Uh, 40 plus years ago. They had just built Madison, the new Madison Square Garden on day 33rd Street in Manhattan. It is still one of the rock and joints in all of professional sports. It's undergone so many facelifts. Now you don't necessarily recognize it except from outside. The outside of the building hesitates Thean side has changed many times over. And it is still well one of the marquee places to play in the NBA. The next have not held up there into the bargain when it comes to Ah marquee events at Madison Square Garden. Only actually have the here They, too, had a great regular season and finished port in the Eastern Conference. The next have not been in the playoffs in almost a decade. They haven't got into the playoffs with a chance to advance and do something in almost a decade. I'm guessing that Madison Square Garden will be rocking this upcoming hour when the next get their playoff run first time in a long time underway so lot of NBA playoff conversation today. For sure. And we are going to talk about is this the year? Of the old man as a guy who's first number and his age is a five. That would be five. Oh, um, I am wholeheartedly rooting for Phil Mickelson. He has a three stroke lead with four holes to play at the PGA, Um he did build his lead to five. He just dug double bogeyed. The the last hole that they played 14 Lou, you stays and had double bogey Di previous hall, and he was the closest competitors and that gave Mickelson the five stroke lead, so it's down to a three stroke lead with four holes to play. Mickelson's on top at minus six, who stays in his second at minus three kept a Who's had a tough day today, including a double bogey on the second, which is one of the bigger score herbal holds on his course. Or at least it was for the first three days. Um, he has faltered today and his fault fell to minus two. Another old man, Patrick Harrington, who hasn't been a player in a major for years. Actually put a really nice round together of 69 to get to minus two and minus two right now is good enough for red tide. For third place. So, um, in a year where 40 plus year old Tom Brady becomes the oldest quarterback to ever win a Super Bowl, Yes, Greatest of all time on just added to his legacy by Taking his game from New England not working in concert with Bill Bell, check going down to Tampa and lifting the Bucks to a Super Bowl championship. Phil Mickelson is trying to parallel that with his effort today in the PGA Championship down out in South Carolina at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. Have Nicholson Michelson can hold on and win here at age 50. He will become the oldest golf for ever in the history of the game to capture a major championship. Julia's borrows at age 48 change 48 2 months, three months, four months. I saw it today on the graphic. I don't remember exactly what was, but Julia's borrows Is presently the holder of the oldest man to ever win a major Phil would do so today as a 50 year old. No 50 year old has ever done it before Phil would be the first thing that would, of course, make him the oldest. Have a win a major championship. Maybe it's the year the veteran Maybe No youth is going to be served this year with Tom Brady taken down the Super Bowl and Phil Mickelson potentially taken down the PGA. Maybe us old guys are in for a pretty good rest of 2021. I am pulling for Phil. I've always liked though I was always been a film fan. It's one of those things. I kind of like you guys know that. I reckon Lee came from New York and in New York when you're young. You have to two sides. You can't be a ranger and an island, Our ranger and a devil for no. You gotta pick one. Pick one, and you have to despise the other. If you are a Yankee fan, you have to hate the New York Mets..

We know he is a student of the game, so I'm looking forward to this chap Told about Kevin. Love, Kay Love. Welcome back. It's been a while. Me. Maia's You, baby. You maybe Will. Minnesota the last time we had a show? Put your back. Wow. Welcome back to the show. How are you, pal? You're not excited. Be here. Thanks for having me. I mean, Do it. Has been that long. It's were well overdue. Yeah, it's crazy tubes. You know, it's just running down some of your stats to make sure I had everything buttoned up before the interview, and I mean, I know you've been in Cleveland for a minute. But seven seasons already. I mean, does it seem that long? Try to look back this year because you know, I finally realized that again. Like you said. I spent six years and In Minneapolis with the Timberwolves and now spend more time with the calves. And I have there. So it Z crazy 13 years in just tells you how how fast time flies and you know it's been Quite a year for the MBA. To say the least yet has been in 13 years means you're you're getting up there a little bit. You're the older and a lot of these locker rooms in this Cleveland locker room. You know, when you when you when you think about that, like, do you think about the end? How you feeling? You know what you what are your plans going forward? We know you struggled a little bit only 25 games this past season, but What do your plans for yourself A supply A er going forward. Yeah, I think this like you mentioned those 25 names. I think the most important thing I was talking to somebody in the The military said. Well, you know what's the best thing that you provide for your team? And he said, just being available, I thought, Wow, that's you know, that was that hit close to home for me. I thought I got so unlucky with the injury this year. It took me a little minutes to come back. You mentioned the 25 games are just being available if I'm helping available Have so much more to give. I know what I'm capable of s so long as you can really shoot the ball and really rebound in this league will stick around for a long time. But Again like he said, being, you know leader as well learning from another standing the sacrifice from the championship teams what it takes to win and providing that as as a voice. A swell. I think that could be really paramount for young team. I mean, I was 32 years old out there playing with four guys or start with four guys that were 22 years and younger, So I mean that zoo in some ways. Early on, not conducive to winning, but growing with them and seeing you know what they're capable of. I mean, Jared Allen is isn't off the players Franchise center calling Sexton so many 20 or 25 Point games. One of the most hardest workers I've ever seen. Isaac Kokoro came into the league. I thought he was just gonna be a defender. We put him on. Much the best player one through three every single night. And it really came into his own start scoring the ball had career highs, was getting up in 567 rebounds, assists in the number of games and then various Garland, who's he had a huge lead this year in the second year? I've been after having his rookie season cut short by 17 Games only plan four games at Vandy and, you know, really, this thing is separate second run through the lead. He had a really great season and figured out he can pretty much get any spot he wants to. On the floor and impact the game so much, um, you know, from being able to get guys involved, you know. Really play a good defensive role but really scored a ball of high level to get into the pain and also shoot at a very high cliff in three. So those guys that are in their starting with me as well as the supporting unit could really make a big leap this summer. So there's a major major summer for for us, especially In terms of myself. Just get my legs back underneath, being and turning that final corner on that calf injury for me, you guys have some young players and I don't need to be redundant. Here. You ripped through everybody. I like all those players so future should be bright in Cleveland. What's all that Kevin Love? Five time? All Star NBA champions? Well, we'll get to the game tonight. We were wrapping a little bit before we started the interview about how pumped up you are just as a fan tow watch. LeBron and step tonight will prove problems with senior definitely T up on that, but I want to go back to Minnesota from home because seven seasons in Cleveland your first six with the T wolves, you You want a rebounding title? It's interesting, though, Kevin and I need some guidance here because I'm sure I'm sure the circumstances are uniquely different, but Marbury he bounced. He didn't want to stay there. Kevin Garnett. He eventually moved on. You eventually moved on. There's rumblings about whether or not Karl Anthony towns is long from Minnesota. Is there something fundamentally or inherently wrong with the franchise where their star players rarely stay? You know, I think it's just winning. For me. It was, I think, you know, probably with Cady and and cattle can't speak for for Steph. Stephon Marbury. But, um, you know, I think you know, the not necessarily wanting to leave but wanting to win more than anything factored in, at least for me, and I was getting to a point in my career where we had made the playoffs. We had several young teams a couple years. We Really had a revolving door. You know, Some guys went through injuries. You know, we lost some star players, and we were never truly able to grow together. So there was a number of factors that One word in our control, but to not exactly in our control as well. And I think you know you try and fight that and putting together a team from ownership and a front office standpoint, But for me, I thought it was timeto. Time to move on. And, you know, thankfully, the summer offered himself up. And, um, you know, LeBron and gone back to Cleveland. You know, he kind of called me asked me what I was thinking. And really, the rest is history. So I'm very thankful for everything that happened in Minneapolis and coming into my own and everything that happened within that six years but also.

His team is 15 of six, averaging better than seven runs game over that span. Tonight, they take their hacks against Kwong Young Kim. The Cardinals are five and on his starts this season, and he's been consistent. Having allowed just one run in each of his last four starts facing San Diego for the first time did over Ryan Weather is facing the cards. He's pitched out of the pen while tonight he makes his fourth start pitching to a sub one. Er, a one bat he'll need to be mindful of is Nolan era nado. He's four for eight with a pair of home runs in the first two. Came to this series leading the cards in homers and RB eyes this season, Having hit nearly 400 against the Padres last season, is a member of the rocks for a look ahead. Here's our team of Chris Singleton and Dan Shulman. Jim, thank you very much tonight in the Sunday night or the San Diego Padres were going for the sweep of the ST Louis Cardinals and singing given all the issues the Padres have had with five players out with covert related protocols, I think j sticklers gotta be thrilled with how his team has been playing the last few days. Exactly. Dan and I would say even more so coming off of the decisive win last night 13 to 3. He didn't have to use high leverage, guys. So in a good situation tonight With the rookie Ryan Weather's going. You don't expect me to pitch too deep into the ballgame. He's worked from bull pin their starting rotation. So in that regard a team that's had the best bullpen in the National League. I think he's sitting really good after a great first couple of games of the Syrians to look at a sweep of the ST Louis Cardinals. Yeah, weather is just 21 years of age, J. Singler said before the game, hoping for maybe 70 or 75 quality pitches. For the young lefty who has put up great numbers in limited appearances in the big leagues on the other side for the Cardinals, the best way to break a losing streak is to get a good start. Your starting pitcher and a guy that you just saw pitch in a game you did this week between the Cardinals and the Brewers. It'll be lefty Kwon Jeong Kim on the mound for ST Louis..

It's been a tough road for sure. I mean, this is ah. Kind of like a new and different situation that you know I for one am not an expert. It all right, so Try to Justin for myself as much as possible and speak and meet with this many doctors and get as many opinions and try and learn as much as I can about the full situation, so That's been it's been tough. I mean, you know more than anything like Not playing is just is the toughest part about it. I mean, that's that's what I want to do. And 24 years old. I mean, You know, there's nothing I want to be doing more than playing hockey and competing and being on the ice every day, so I think the mental side of it has been tough for sure Kind of not knowing where this is going to go to touch on the surgery aspect.

Jack John Worrell. Good to see you to follow up on that It sounds like you feel that you are confident you will be available for next season. And but my actual might. My other question was You know, we hear about hope and this team, possibly turning the corner. Um, what did you see out of this team? And how much is there hope that this team can finally turn things around? Yeah. I mean, it was. It's definitely different perspective being, uh, No being out of the lineup, and you know, kind of going through this experience where you're just watching every game from from afar and You know, being able to talk to the guys and get their perspective on how things were. You know how things were different. And how things right under Donny, Um You know you guys were really positive about it. It seems like the mood's good. It seems like guys there. No guys were selling. It's you know, I mean, you guys watch the game, just like I do. It seemed like some guys started to take off and play better, and I think that there's definitely positive to that. You know, I obviously didn't speak with you guys after after Ralph got fired. You know, that's that's always It's a It's a tough situation. It's a tough situation for an organization for players. It's you know, it's hard. It Z. You know, Ralph is a phenomenal human being and You know somebody that you know, I hope to continue have a relationship with the rest of my life. I think he's just I think it's just I think the world of Ralph as a human being and No, but I have heard a lot of really good things and the response from the guys has been good in terms of You know how Donny came in and implemented. You know his system and how we got guys play and So You know, it's definitely good. I mean, you've seen some positivity over the last, however many 25 games or so, and it's been It's been nice to see it's been nice to see some guys step up in different roles and have some success. You know, I think it's been Finger. Eight. It's good for your organization is good for some of these young guys that are getting his opportunities. And you know some other guys who No, we're kind of, you know, brought to the forefront. Obviously the goaltending situation That's been an interesting one with with all the injuries, but I think it's been. It's been great to watch some of these guys step in and play. I mean, Michael Hauser. I think it's been probably world and weak for him. It Z Really cool to see him get that experience and get the play And obviously, you know, play well so Um No, I think there's some positivity be Positivity to be shown. I don't think any of us thought we were going to be sitting here talking about the same thing this year that we talked about last year as far as being in last place and the whole thing and I've been around you long enough to know for sure how you feel about losing and how much you despise it. And you You've talked about it many times. What is your mind set now, after this year? How do you feel about it and have things changed in your mind? Do you still want to be part of the solution? Would you like to move on elsewhere? How do you feel about it? Yeah. I mean, I think that's a pretty pretty loaded question. I think there's a lot to it. I think You know for sure. I would say I've been a bit upset about the way that things have been handled since I've been hurt. Wouldn't I'd be lying to say the things have have moved smoothly.

"To one bills live. Chris Brown. Steve Tasker. What do you like most about 1/17 regular season game. Taking your comments on the tweet sheet right now and Tiffany says I would prefer to attend to 17th regular season home game over any preseason game. Paying for two home preseason games is no fun certainly offers the potential to add an out of conference matchup that you would have to wait years to see. A positive move by the NFL. She is right about preseason seeing that NFC team more often like that's true, Yeah, if there's a Yeah, there was for a home game for most team for most people, not bills, fans or Miami fans or jet fans. But think about it if you got If you're an NFC team, you'd never get a chance to see Tom Brady. You know, you never get a chance once every eight years on the rotational. Peyton Manning. Drew Brees. Never gonna see those those players unless you put you know every eight years. Think recently play here twice in Buffalo rise entire career. So there is that and this year to be interesting, too, because it looks like the bill's gonna see fits again. If he's indeed if he still the starting quarterback for the Washington Foot, the Washington football team, depending on which week they come in here, because, you know It's not gonna last His ninth NFL team, and that's what I wrote in the story on buffalo bills dot com. I I likened him to a kid coming back for Halloween in a different costume. That's essentially what he's doing. That's right. It's not gonna last in Washington, you know, it's not as much as they wanted to. We want to accept, you know having it's funny. It just is not gonna last It never does. 98 times before this, he's been in Miami. We really never saw its tragic too much. They were four and three when he got benched. And they had won three in a row. Yeah. And they went six. And they would six and 10 and six Yeah, this last year and got shut out of the playoffs. Yeah. With an extra with an extra team going to the postseason. They were four and three and two and went six and three. Now. Fits came in and bail him out of a couple of those. He did. So you say what you want. But still Yeah, it is going to come back to Buffalo again. Yeah, it's gonna be great from David like it. But on Lee, if it means one less preseason game, it's a very long season, so would love it if they had One. Well, if they won add another bye week to help players. He'll in season some to increase roster size by 2 to 4 players minimum for increased injuries. It's already borderline enough players now. So he likes it as long as it means. One less preseason game, which it has to, because under the CBS regulations, there could be no more than a total of 20 games. And that counts preseason games. So that's why when they had the 17th game, it will automatically shave off a preseason game because you can't have a cumulative total of 20. Can't have more than that. That's pre season regular season because obviously you're gonna have more than 20 games if you go to the playoffs. Um Remember, we had the bills that I was on a couple of times we played in a What? He called it An American Bowl in London. Yeah, honey and So you had five preseason games. 16 regular season games. Which is 21, then Two or three postseason games. And if you want the wild card, it was wild card division championship Super Bowl. Flings 25 games. Lotte. A lot of games. You know, the last time the bills had a five game preseason was 2009. Which was the Hall of Fame induction year for Bruce and Mr Wilson. And so you know why they put the bills in that Hall of Fame game. Against the Titans. So that was the last time they had to play a five game preseason. So now is I want the big, not big The Hall of Fame games that give you a four game preseason. Yeah, I wonder. I don't think you can. I don't think I can. Five game would do the same thing and put your 21 Yeah. How did they Did they get away with that? Previously? I do not know. I don't wonder if the scene I didn't know about the 20. I just read it today. The new C B A. Stipulates most more than 20 might be new. Yeah, and they might have been. I wonder what they have to do with the Hall of Fame. Yeah, it's gonna have to be somebody's one preseason game. Well, yeah, one of them. It might have been a preemptive move by the union as well to say you're not going to start. That's my guess. Yeah, So if it's a new clause in the C B a then that that makes some sense because teams were having way more than well. We'll have more than 20 games. Here's a new Ah Tweeter on the tweet. She'd clarky, he says. I really don't like the uneven home away balance. What if you're one good year lines up with the year you have an extra away game and that holds you back. Or what if two teams tie for wins, but one had an extra home game. Doesn't seem fair. They should have gone to 18 games. Yeah, but It's the whole conference that's going to have the extra home game. The FC All 16 teams have the extra home game this year for that very reason, Clarky. S O. Nobody has an uneven number. Of or an extra home game compared to another team in the same conference, which could affect playoff seeding. That's why the entire HFCs the extra home game this year. Yeah, that's exactly they foresaw that and so There you go. That's I agree with you. 18 games is the way to go Start and a task. Your plan started two weeks before Labor Day. Take the entire Labor Day weekend, everybody The fans the player league wide wide by your barbecues the 16 Games on the weekend after September after Labor Day, and you go regular by schedule after that.

Yeah, it looks like okay, man, I watched the Warriors of must see for me is easy given my life of being up until two and three o'clock in the morning to Seymour Warriors games. Than anything to write. 10 10 30 starts in the East are good for me when I'm back there When I'm East. I've watched it Steph Curry. He's the greatest. He's one of the players with a few players in any sport, you can say. People will say about him because he would never say it. He's the greatest Ever. And he specific important thing is the greatest shooter ever. Ambassador. Yep. But so I don't I I love watching Steph. Um, but I don't know that he's but as he addressed that if somebody asked him, Yeah, Typically, they think he's got what's his answer back. He kind of he doesn't come out and say it. He just says that things are feeling good and that he's in a great physical shape and that he You know, he knows what he wants to do on his teammates are, you know they say he's not denying it. He's saying, he said the elsewhere last night he gave the speech or the line. The game speaks for itself is what he said. So it's my gonna wanna jump in real quick to interrupt here, but just to give you this fuel for your answer, Steve Kerr has said he thinks truth. The best that's important. Steve Curves observation, Stephen, not a person ever. Given the hyperbole. I just looked at him and I marvel over his performances, but You know the specific and we're hairsplitting about whether it's the greatest ever. He's the greatest ever what he does at the at one of the things he does. He's the best. And on the short list of the best ever. Obviously play is I just I'm really when I look at Steph play, especially the last 10 games. I'm just hoping he Can replicate that. And he has done over over again next year when players presumably back and healthy and the Warriors have a real chance. I'm talking about personnel, obviously now Go just sort of go after league and be right there not not sort of dancing with the record of 500 record, but being the Warriors, and I'm hoping for that hope for that for a lot of reason for Steph. But, yeah, I'm looking at him thinking this is what Steph Curry does, Man. It zwah under Risto watch. I had not really thought about whether it was his best ever because I think I know stuff Curry well enough to know. That best ever for him is going to be if he's playing this way, And that team is in serious contention at the top of the standings in the Western Conference. Well, that would lead us to our next question, Mike and we're talking to Michael Wilbon. Of course, ESPN got a big piece on Cover story on Devin Booker is want to ask him about two for sure. But we've been wondering, Is it enough? Can you win the M V p from back in the pack, and we looked at home. Russell Westbrook in 2016 was a six seat now that was about it. Yeah, but that was Yeah. I mean, you listen, you can, but you can't have other people having great great years. And look, I know that people have LeBron fatigue in some ways, Um Andre have that people didn't seem to get Steph fatigue. You know those back to back years, and so maybe they did, but and I don't. I don't even believe in that. I mean, I I appreciate great performances that great players too much the entirety of what they do. But when LeBron is having this kind of year, I don't know about joker because he's sort of a little bit back of the pack. And by the way these guys have time to emerge we're talking about he was being at what 25 games ish. Yeah, they got more than 40 games left. Yeah. But it's Zaf in the MBA. This is not the same as Major league baseball where you could see it happen a little more frequently in the MBA. People are looking to vote for and I know I'm a voter. Um Best player on the best team in a lot of cases, is that is that something that's mandatory to me? No, but it's gonna be tough to win it from back in the pack. If you've got other players having truly great seasons and be playing great Phillies beat That's record in the east..

Giants need win, help to reach playoffs after loss to Padres
"There were 7 18 7 wins 18 losses against teams that were over 500. If you look at all the playoff teams there, eight wins 20 losses. How far can these Giants go? If they do get into the playoffs? And what are your thoughts against his three game Dodgers series? The first round if and when they get to l. A on Wednesday? Well, I don't know if anybody would pick the Giants to win that. I don't think it's it just it's just not not a reasonable way to think. I mean, the Dodgers were the best team in baseball there 25 games over 500 there one through nine with power hitters. They've got Kirsch on and bueller lined up. They got a bunch of right handed pitchers, you know, adjust in May and Johnson against the Giants, right handers. Stacks up really kind of comically. One sided, however, Marty, it's baseball, right? I mean, what's the point of serious when the first one, but if they be Kershaw behind behind God's man, I mean, you know, that's that's the great thing. They go in your record book? Look up. 1951 look of 1962. Yeah, and this is a you're going to write it. I hope it's Giants Dodgers. You'll write a great story that you will write an amazing story. About about how these teams have played before and how the Giants were written off before to the very last pitch, and they ended up winning and winning penance by doing it. So my feeling is Bruce. You got a lot of lefties. The Dodgers a lefty oriented. We've seen what Kershaw was done before. It's a baseball game. That's all it is. Anything can happen. Yeah, three runs in the first inning off. Kershaw is like, whoa, what's going on here? And all of a sudden, people say, Gee, we didn't see that coming. Yeah, and it's very I wouldn't say it's unique to baseball. But you know if you get an NFL Matchup kind of the best in the worst. He had a pretty good idea how it's going to come out or an MBA. The Lakers are playing a team that's you know, they can't win a game to save their life. If you had a fair idea, but the baseball and we've seen it so many times. You can just knock you on your own your song on your seat her off your seat. What's What is it? Something like that happens. It's the shock. That's it. Come on the Mets and the Orioles 1969. How about that? Yeah, the miracle Mets. They weren't supposed to get there. They weren't supposed to beat the Braves, then Henry Aaron, and they did. And then next next thing, you know, they win the whole thing. And you know Cleon Jones and Tommy and me and Tom Seaver and all of a sudden the team that have been so unbelievably bad. It's like, Wow, these guys are really good, and it turned out they They were very good for the for the next several years, But that was that was a miraculously kind of thing that you know it goes back to the miracle Braves, you know, back in 1919 14. That's correct, George Stone, the miracle Braves. Yeah. So The history of baseball. It's filled with great stuff like this and completely improbable development. So we will watch with great anticipation.
Washington Wizards guard Jodie Meeks suspended 25 games
"These are all these are gonna be off season questions for the spurs and it's some point co is going to have to answer them i think and i think this has been further complicated by the fact that he's not very communicative he did talk one day maybe once in the last few months after a one of their practices but but then shed much light on anything he doesn't say much publicly and of course that leads to confusion and he's not that much different privately with them agent rousey and the insider an analyst short right here with steven a on espn radio what was let's go to some of these other these the these other news i just read that jodie meeks the washington wizards averaging six points on a year for crying out loud is suspended for twenty five games violating antidrug policy and therefore he's not eligible for the postseason i'm thinking about that i'm also thinking about the fact that some of the dramas surrounded the washington wizards this season with john wall being out etc where did you watch now i'm just talking about as a team collectively as a unit how would you describe how things have gone for them this year and with things are right now yeah we reported the big story this afternoon and he is just twenty five game suspension starts tomorrow he won't make the trip to toronto with the team and obviously this carries into next season he he hasn't had his best season but this is a team that has you know he's averaged fourteen fifteen minutes a game for them and and did give them some depth to the guard position but it's a you know bobby marks made a good point earlier are for office insider you know talking about going through this with cliff robinson when they when he when bobby worked for the nets that even though robinson wasn't a big part of the team it's jarring to a team on the eve of the playoffs to have something like this i mean it throws everybody off a little bit and washington certainly is a team their starting five is better than most it's it's.
