Episode 244: There Continues To Be Nothing Good About The Trop, But At Least Rougned Odor is a Hero

"I'm on the pre here. It is later. He is nike win. Lots of what's happening. Welcome to another edition. Short porch presented by barstool sports. I'm your host subs alongside the other side of the laptop. Tommy smokes fresh puerto rico. Mardi mush out in jersey city new jersey. I don't even know where you're actually from randolph. No i just made that up. Rinse i just mentioned. Tj libs underneath rutgers campus. That room with all the tiles and stuff just a bunker that makes sense right off the top for you. Get the yankee news new interest because we had to change interest because we don't own the rights to the up so At the switch it up a little bit legal reasons. So that's the new interest but it's basically the same calls just bear with us as we kind of figured out and toy with it but yeah new interesting and really sad. Tj can't and the show with like teacher you gotta be bugged. I was getting some positive feedback about the ultra music now anytime anyone would send a positive on twitter. Tj which screenshot and put it on a group. Yeah and it's like. I don't even think we ever accused you of being bad at it. No no it was like one. Time hubs got a negative comment. And i sent it to him. He was like fine. You just do the fucking music. And then i got positive comments on bragging about it. Yeah so that's me a little different but some good. I thought this is going to be super depressing. The happiest show of all time This week but the yankees avoided complete disaster finally went fuck an extra innings game which it seemed like they just weren't capable of doing like i almost gave artesia percent chance hanging instead symphony not looking. I bet it's the first extra inning game the yankees have ever want. Wanna try to kind of feel that seems right because they just don't win games in general so because i don't ever want to go back to trump. Did you see at the end of the game deal. You just hug or shell and put his head on shoulder this right. It was right after the game. You just like hug them in like kinda side and puts on his on his shoulder. I was like that's literally how we all feel like. Yeah well we're like eight games then but the fact that went to grind out these winds at the end ends. Losing on stupid shit is like we needed today's game. I the moralizing he first. Few days of. The trump They you know it's not like people like the players don't get like they. This is a big game like pay nine games in. It's crazy games but they couldn't get swept here especially after last year and everything still. Losing series isn't great but the way they want today hopefully as a way to get themselves going a little bit and yeah i mean. We'll we'll start with today's game. Obviously the the good news ruined or door who may very well just beat ramiro pena like they literally look the same with door shea. Face i mean great at bat in the tenth big single a dropped in front of the center fielder. Gary comes up right after that. Absolute laces ball up the middle Which is so big. Because one really doesn't we'll that should make you feel good at all in the with the mound second rule and geo just open game up and margot just misses the ball and the yankees win a huge game there. such breath. What are your initial thoughts from the one. I mean it's crazy. How much better. We feel just because game happened today. That can happen on friday and they lost the last two. We'd be so depressed right now. We still probably should be feeling pretty down with most series but yet or in five verse. Three and six just feels drastically different. Even though the one vesey with them right like the raise would have been five and four yankees who've been through and now that both four and five or talk about the standings right now but it just big morally. We lose one today. Where i mean gardeners idiot running home on that Yeah what the fuck was that man. Yeah just like stupid mistakes where you should have one. But all this team all our boone. All stupid dmz or whoever making these decisions are the showing us. How dumb hicks is still in the lineup. Batting third emmanuel craziest story in america right now all with razor plays bad games. And he's out. I'm okay with garvey and he's actually playing like having good at bats and like he could stay in but hey you can take out the guys bat one twenty move somewhat up the logic of punishing. Clint but you come into this. Following announcing clincher. Starting left fielder. Okay you please and everybody makes sense. Now we're taking him out of the lineup for two straight games because he's he's No less thirteen plate. Appearances hasn't been on base before that he was like the only guy hitting on the team besides like gary. That's not a starting field. You're you're starting left. Fielder is allowed to work himself out of slumps like that. You're not giving him that. And we're only ninety cents the fuck fucking season and like i said i agree. I don't have from gardner player. Like he knows how i mean. Obviously the wild pitch that just popped up and that was bad but you feel better when guards at the plate as opposed to aaron hicks continues to just not not only put up terrible at. That's and the bases loaded of grumbled up the he's in the three he'll also not in the double plays he's hitting dole place in back to back games so like what the fuck. The at bats are terrible. He's not a three hitter. Stop it put your show in the three hope. He went for four days. Before you walk in the two hole in our lineups before the season me and marty did people were like. Oh you guys are fucking crazy. Who's laughing now. It's did you know that he had four four hundred fifty three feet and him like. I didn't think he could hit a baseball. Epo was blasted lasted. Yeah aaron hicks. Just can't tomorrow against the bluejays with garrett cole on the mound aaron hicks just cannot be in the thrill cannot happen. There's only one not all solution. He has to lead off. Obviously he needs to get more at bats. Strew agree i literally want book and hitomi. The guy's a career fucking two-thirty hitter. He walked sometimes and he has some power. Let's not forget that. Aaron hicks like sucked his whole career. The ten twins sucked his first day or at the yankees and he's had like a couple seasons where it's at home runs. And but like he's not a three he should just be a writing. Yeah that's also true. He's much better. righty like he might just. You know there's plenty of basketball players out there. That shoot like the wrong hand. Ben simmons isn't he technically a righty. These shoots lefty aren't isn't a left-hander he should hit right. Try that out because whatever you're doing now on the left side of the plate ain't work and then also talk. The experiment was a unmitigated disaster. He's he's he is the worst player i've ever seen. Try to hit a baseball. Like i never on this team. Mardi mardi was saying. Oh we gotta get jay bruce at that you talking to me. Don't you dare the as i told you. He looks lost up there. He's so bad. I feel like for whatever reason he wears. These blue batting gloves. And when he wears them with The road jerseys. I think the bangla. Like he just looks like he has no chance up there he should take. The battery goes off. He should bat barehanded. I think he'd actually a better. Jails for whatever reason. I think the bangles give him no chance. No if he had like super high socks no gloves he would look like a nineteen twenties baseball player rebrand war he looks like a nineteen twenty. He looks like he's from the nineteen twenty s and it was like. Hey here's modern day. Pitching trying to hit like. That's that's what looks. What's him up the right like he's doing permanently south for a little bit of a little bit right. I think dj. I think they're adorable. Apply a lot of seconds. I think digital play a lot of i. I think it's going to get some chances at first base to i think he's just the next logical state. This showed him today. he was working out more. I base I i think no more tapers like like them really come like didn't really screw us at all today. Like do light them taken out. Stanton right there on the ninth inning for talk more than like just in talking was up that next sending eilly bumped it but do we don't really care. Thank you need that. Run the score and you need the better guy on bass and talk faster though on the cover off the ball. I know that's why i was cut. It's still always like i mean. Obviously i still would rather stanton talking extra innings. I thought they were gonna throw hicks out on the top bunk because it kind of like flew out there pretty quickly. A hilarious moment says watching them. My roommates and we have masters on once. Ev yankees on the other. And we're just talking in the contact play where judge runs on contacts thrown out Forget whoever hit. The ball took my roommates and immediately on content goes that'll play and then on the throw home he goes he goes down. Judge was thrown out by twenty feet. He was screaming down as if like he was going to like. This is all going to platinum emergency. Replay challenge yeah. Yeah exactly. He thought he was going to work. As if six eight fucking to eighty judges gonna beat up so funny. He couldn't have been more wrong things a one year. Life your way to friends your roommates. You guys have too many good times. Okay no no no no it could. It could not be more opposite. We all hate each other. I don't know you only like our roommates. We hate each other owners games. Like oh we got three ts. Watch altogether just because we have two. Tv's doesn't mean. We like each other. I don't think you liked them too much. I think it's nice like i agree. It seems like you have a good relationship with their roommates. No we probably tell each other. The die at least once a day will desk. I don't really go on contact when you're aaron judge at thirds Like let it go through their playing in. Well that's not. They're not even giving him a judgment call their the moment i mean you know you play bass contact what you just go. Never have that on. Yeah it's it's just let through or of sacked fly like don't you should not go on contact as you were not fast enough. Yeah i guess. I did like that. They sent him on the on. The glacier hit different because apple's that throws coming from center field so far out. Like i think it was tipped to left or left yet. That's coming from the fuck. Third baseman was playing in their hands. It couldn't have been hit right. like clear. Like almost hit into the guys like he almost was able to feel that in throwing motion. It was hit so cleanly out. And that's like a. That's that's fielded ninety nine one hundred times straightened catcher easily like you're out every time. Yeah no doubt what else is. Oh montgomery wasn't good but to finish five innings. Four runs like he clearly like i think. His first five pitches of the game balls like he just wasn't in control but to get through five innings at thought was big and the bullpen is. Just lights out like chapman. What what the fuck was that second. Strike it that looked like that was one more edible trinkets have ever seen that pitch. No chance the no chance there. I also thought the game was a lock to be over when that dude pablo who was hitless on the air yet three strikeouts. He comes up in a man on second and he'd made the error the inning before. I thought for sure that the ball was just going to find the hall or whatever on the mound again like walk. I just saw bad memories there but challenges struck him out and he's been around has decided to extract people out this year. It's been a very good strategy. And i really hope continues. I'm not saying anything because you know what's going to happen. Yeah our our was also. He does look better this like. You'll he added a splitter. So that's ideal what would you. Breyer was good algebra you. Yeah today anybody's mentioned too. I said it was good. Today is not good. He got lucky. He's talked to guys he all over the place you. That's not good open. Your eyes herrick like all twitter was praising he was completely what are we talking about the same. I understand if you if you look like is he was all over the place he was. He was nasty. I don't know if you could say all over the place we don't walk. Single batter struck every truck. Guys out nasty. I thought he was nasty nasty. You think he was unhittable of it was on. I didn't say i was a third said he would. I started this all saying he was good. Cut ins true everything for your throat to kill me. Come on if you want much. I can come over and we can just watch album. Breyer's appearance tonight. Come just to. I don't wanna give these guys a break yet. I need to play better than that. I it wasn't a good weekend. Like albert vertebrae maybe doesn't deserve too much blame for anything but hero lizards your poor alpert taken shots left and right. All guy was a one-two-three. I don't get like why we have to hate our teams. We should love him so much but they make him so much. What was that blog from. Carl it was so good as like hitting a baseball fan is the most frustrating or something. I mean that's like crazy like the yankees deserve being like feeling negative after this weekend especially after the first two games natural to be i think especially were like football. It's once a week right. If you're team sucks it's not fun but it's once a week and like you still have football sunday right or like in your teams bad like all right one game of sixteen iraq being like baseball two hundred sixty two games six months. You're pretty much only watching your team every night. It's just drink and when you're not rolling like we weren't last few days it's just like it was the friday and saturday. We're just saturday. Was i think the worst baseball game. I watched it was. They never had a chance to score. Once once they went down and was over it was bad. I mean listen. It's gonna be going episode or whatever it's not. Oh it's only nine games. It's we're seeing the same things that felt them over and over and over again they don't have fundamentals there. They're terrible the field that can't hit with his position. Their home run dependent. Yada yada yada and you know what to help.

But i feel like i personally am gonna need these to recover from museums. Is there something else these days. What else did you see. The orioles play today now. The second base. He added the guy backing up got. It dropped out his glove and he picked it up through at home. When knows running home over the catches had the third base got. There is still didn't go that it hit off the wall and then he schooled outrageous plays see. My god was the orioles. The red sox orioles game was the red sox. Did i think eight home runs in. That games ridiculous. Oh quick no one more. Quick note from fr- i know i know talks on good right. They play orioles. I think we're also basing it off of like our friends are guys at works tweets. Because that's how basing off right now. Jd is hot. he didn't like five hundred. That's a problem but he hit three home runs today. He did ever shit too. But i mean they're pitching will hold up. I don't think all your same thing last year and their bullpen isn't good. Besides i will say geir whitlock. That's fucking annoying. That we just had him and saw nothing in this guy and he's nasty for them that i don't appreciate that's not trash. He came in yesterday and blue game. They ended up winning and xers like he's looks. He looks the exact same as you did last year. He's a tough go. Yeah not great. Won't quick thing from sunday. That honeywell guy who made his major league debut like he's had like a wild and he's like four arm surgery to get to this point to his debut. He pitched the whole game. We were gonna get hit. Like kevin cash using guys the opener and not like a regular starter. Trees that stretched out but like they had no chance against honeywell guy. So thank you kevin cash for just pulling them because walker. They immediately scored walker came in the game now. Granted he kinda settled down but Honeywell i mean i feel like. He's just nasty. I don't wanna see that guy at all. In the future darren o'day also continues to just be like lights out so he's been dead around me way. Better excuse fuel does not see lately like lately. It's been very clean like per month without allowing base runner. And just his his form won't make me. Yeah that's fair and his age and all that day that doesn't help. Yeah oh door. Rua ahead route net since he has a brother that's also named route. That's ridiculous his brother's name is just route. Netto door was the grills. What were who has grills riddles. What are you saying. The kyle's those portable groups. George foreman does all his kids names jewish new year including his daughter. Oh yeah his daughter is george. Why would you do that. Because his name formed baby research got like thoughts kids. He's like he's got a shit load of kid in there on george his co. Listen you can name your name your kid your own name if you're all wheel. George you got seven. Pete no no okay okay twirl georgetta. Okay jedis worse. I'd rather seven daughters. Need you to be a girl named george. George all of our named george. Yeah that's insane but ruin dory group is just. Both georgia is a combination name. What i've had five sons. Or george. Junior george the third monk towards the big walk who goes by big wheel also. This isn't sick. third fourth work. I don't think maybe he understands that. George the fifth red and george the sixth little joey was. They're just a monk. Snuck in there or someone like george. The seconds nickname the nick. Junior george edward forman's they always have something in common. I end if one of us goes up. Then we all go up together and if one goes down we all go down together. Some seven or now five Yeah so five sons rukh dead actually has a legit explanation behind wise names route dead. His grandfather's name is douglas and his grandmother's name nidia. So it's doug and ned but all of the boys in his family's name start with an r so they just made it our instead of d so it should be doug ned but everyone in his family is an rb like the kardashians so he's rooted what pulled me remembering form and goes good. Well i know. I did not know. That's the mardi just has a tweet thirteen seconds ago. We don't talk about enough to george foreman named l. Five sons george as you move your fingers well done. Well s- cutting out be on the best party scheduled in tweet deck for five twenty five anyway. Oh my god yeah. Oh we're no door so he shade so he looks like a completely different human being with shay face but you can now tell that he just packs a fucking crazy dip like you couldn't tell that with the beer ramirez guy but imagine his wife just did it no like he like his whole life. He just plays with his mouth. Giant can handle on the team. We don't have to talk about his wife. Amy amy cole might get jealous mukul garrett cole of monday very excited for that we need to say i love amy goal. They appreciate her Thing okay so let's run to the bad because there was some bad to mingle. Her mon is gone. That's good thing it's also. Can we saw a real guitar rates got. That's door came in one game tyler. Wade done excellent though. Don't we can to attach these players too fast or door. Great hit he was too little lost the plate today to normal. But we know we. Don't even more tyler. Wait we don't. We don't have enough fast. I will say though that none of this actually make sense so lou. Dpa fan tweeted. Follow this wade made the yankees originally. Because he's a true backup shortstop and no one else can play shortstop on the team. Astrada got fade. Wade was option to acquire door who also cannot push shortstop estrada was dealt san san francisco. Who's backup shortstop. Is their starting center. Fielder and the yankees number. Two shortstop is now gio rochelle. Who's played one game. They're dispersed so that's all going on the lock going on there and none of it makes sense. I'm gonna missed. I wish they'd kept us trotting got rid of wade. Yeah i got shot. People forget people forget he got shot people forget gone but he's got hit the ball like i got into eighty astrada. Yeah i but. I don't know you can't really make much logic traded for cash considerations and don't know why we did that but man. The white sox policemen nice runs the have three three put like a thousand dollars more than four wheel. Those you don mike. An ambitious bet back bacon egg and cheese bed as how about that are what i keep seeing tweets about that. What no runs in the first parliament like three games. Three games seven fifty hit back to back to his. Did i assume it didn't have today. Lost the first game. Well have catch esteem. You gotta get off. You can lose that bet in one pitch. I've lost that. Bet one pitch before it fun to like. You only need nine outs. For plus eight hundred six. Oh with all the games combined. Three games need eighteen eighteen. How you got nine and so many outs never mind one on how. You got nine raw tomato. Her mom he got the start on. Saturday wasn't good again. Eight hits just roughed up four runs. He sent down. But it's kind of a fake down because with the coming up to an excellent fourteen days so they don't need a fifth pitcher for forty days. And i think he's going to call back up could do it out and i mean this is not good. This is hasn't been good sure. I'm sure you can get around. But i like to see debbie out there on down. I mean i was a little surprised. With how like you said it is kind of a fake sundown but a little surprising that like the leash was that quick with him because you know they stick with them through all this suspension. Like coming back. He has a good spring training. They put them in the rotation then like after two beds arts but not like he couldn't get fucking out starts like to descend them right. It's a little surprising. I kinda like it though. It's almost like we have short. We should have a short least with him. Yeah he hasn't pitched in so long it. We know debbie pitch last year. We could. i don't know he just has been looking terrible. Also teaches sitting there trying to recruit mack mclarty rutgers factor workers people. Forget that he originally committed to rutgers in high school. I think people just don't know that. Yeah that's another way to say that. Is he leaving texas. That he's doing a report on the nba. So he's probably in transit and he's not gonna nba easily start beard leaving. Yeah were they hire someone with her. Mom's outta here would like to see. Debbie could see my king to like he's shown me and that what appears this year. Like i'd like to see more of him A guy he just continues to look unbelievable. Johnny lasagna to more per shutout innings on saturday. Three strikeouts forty pitches era of zero on the year. Just a wilson also look good but lasagna's like a superstar favorite now. Yeah he's awesome. He's ever like do not fuck with him. I know we talked about this time. I don't make them the opener. do not do that. Keep him like we don't need no. We have too many starting pitcher. I guess or healthy starting pitchers the moment but keeps on his to this to inning like weapon role where you can just pitch the fifth and sixth and seventh on his changeup this disgusting. Very big fan of lasagna But yeah saturday sucks. I said like lifeless Five hits five just random hits on the topic. Was i don't to do it now. Let's wait a few more days. Give it some thought. Maybe we'll do our season. Debut of bullpen. Trust ray on thursday okay. We all right to hubs. That game is like that game was so it was random. Hits like who's to outsold get on and they're all in the beginning of the game afternoon from like the fifth inning on. I don't think they had a beachfront no even do they said today After third inning two hits the entire game and the yankees game it was geos and labor's then obviously in extra innings more but yeah great but yet saturday was literally like i had. I was going to plan on drinking saturday anyways like that loss and how like life was like i mean i have such this is going cost me drink like i like this. That was so badly we should get like ours refunded on our lives of watching that fucking excuse of baseball team on saturday granted. Today was saturday that loves such bad taste in my mouth. And what else here and talk about friday and a few other things before that we'll talk to you as our friends at cuts clothing there are pals. We go was wearing it last night.

Blue whatever washed or some shit just looks at me everything good with. We can talk highly about about cops. Call just so probably. When's your birthday. April twenty nine news ne- jerseys the eighteenth or nineteen eighteen focus. You guys are both april. Knew my mom is a very good job figuring that out thank you. My mom is the sixteen on friday. Yeah so i'll be home for that. Would air at toronto tampa. Is it again right. It's tampa again this weekend. Fucking tampa kicker. They are they ever gonna play. Some will not fail east now. I think the whole schedule sale here. That's what i stood in the next team. Like what the indians or some shit like up. Let's see what the schedule looks like here so you got three at toronto. Which is in florida scan. You get used to that apparent the ball. It's a single way pox the ball and you could everyone's run then. They got three a tampa off day. Thursday to against atlanta at the stadium. That's a weird one. The braves tuesday wednesday and then four in cleveland. So that's the next. That's a look ahead for the next two weeks Was friday corey. Kluber was not good at all. Oh would you disagree with that. But he was bad. Oh with east act best. Yeah he He had nothing absolutely nothing. And i think boone still said he looked good. Which i don't understand. Aaron is such a pussy can say one negative thing about this team like like like. I get whatever you're in the locker room with them. You don't wanna lose. But i would. If i was a player. I respect him less for the way he acts like. If i sucked that. I would have no problem with him. Be like yeah you know it was bad. It just seems so fake. Or it's like i would grow to resent him i kind of earthy where it's like almost like i don't want to call his team out like yeah. We need to play like Bad to like aren't like boone. Saying maybe i'll step it up. He's being a big post. Yeah like saturday. After saturday's game. I didn't see quotes and i. I don't know if they really asked them much. But i wouldn't shock me after. They got shut out if he said we had some good swings today. Just lucky though. Because like i mean i if other madij there i go bananas. Why drawing blank. What was geordies famous. Line it's not what you want better than with buddha's kinda like it's not what you want. That's not what you want. Dude should show girardi with his hands up in the answers. Now we want kluber was bad too and a third five runs three of them earned kind of a little bit of unlucky now not to sound like boom but the second inning. Dj makes an error way. Let's bog under his glove. Because people think he's a good defender he's not and i think there was another misplaced. I want to say there was one more bad play But i mean the the third inning was not good and he left. The patients loaded. Nelson gives them up. Nelson also wasn't good. But i do still like what he brings but he he he. He really ended the game right there. Nick nelson not limiting damage. And your friday was bad chip friday saturday sunday. Good days so it's hopefully keep writing this fucker. Thought i had somebody else. Say i guess not. Oh now now slipped my mind. Oh aaron hicks real quick. I should've brought this up before Just shows you like how easier decision it should be for him to not being the three hole so on wednesday. Go to the game. I took my girlfriend. Aaron hicks up at the plate later in the game. He hasn't gone to hit in the game and she goes. Why does he hit third. She doesn't like watch the like she. Starting to watch the yankees. Does he hit all. He's terrible she goes. Yeah i mean he is literally off like he doesn't kaput if she can see that. How does their boone. And the fucking analytics not like what do they. What am so tired of the lefty bullshit. I we had a whole thing on this before but like it is nonsense for him. Net third nonsense report is an excellent question. Hey somebody asked. And then clinched got a fucking gets chat for two games because he missed the ball but hicks. It's gotta be out there garnering center. I'm not even kidding. Like what is aaron hicks. Like aaron hicks. I know he's been around longer. What has he done during this long relief. Some conflict clint phrases. But you know why because they gave a seven year fucking contract and they wanna look smart. I mean there's only seventy million makes me right. You can move that you can you. Can you get away pretty insane that they did give him that contract. These good center fielder. But it's like i wouldn't put garden. He takes some bad route. Subtypes still matter. He took around there was horrific catches it. That's all you gotta do. This gets and then he gets hurt. I mean as a player as a player ever been like. It's not i mean. Obviously it's his fault. And i hit but being three hole has made him like a villain amongst the yankee fans and sound like you doesn't put himself there. You're like you know just shows up on hitting thursday. Take himself out. He should just be like man. Just don't me third backed me up a little a little bit lower place. I've had enough. I can't do this anymore. Batting one twenty. Put me ace coach. I really think like just eight. Eight spot i'm to i can't do the three hole. Man scared to stop so not the best weekend but a fun win on sunday. Nevertheless we've got the blue jays. I don't know who they're pitching. Let's see what the pitching is wants. So we're pitching coal. That's fun we get excited for garrett cole starts that's and it's not in toronto which is always a bonus they're going with you okay. So that could be that's a rematch of opening day. Did you see update with the blue jays. Minor league Situation that now offers the yankees kinda because the minor league season got delayed a month but the blue jays are gonna to plant their triple facility again in buffalo so their aaa team is going to play their home games at the trenton thunder stadium the blue jays aaa team is going to be the trend thunder for home games this summer. Or is this your. It's the new. Arc is coming to trenton to play away. Games against the trenton thunder. In june those are going to be like crazy games. I feel it. And that's the end of the minor league update response be crazy games. It's a weird situation. That player that played on the thunder last year. Now going against them. What in what world is. That's a weird situation sports. Yeah are you gonna cry to them to get down. You're just jealous. Mets thing that they played it was very known that it's raining all across eastern seaboard. Everyone has rain. It's been raining all day in new york city. They had a game today against the marlins who they planned. Yeah they got. I think they played one batter into the game and then they just suspended and they're so this game is now going to be suspended. There's a man on first to lead off the game. Nobody out fisk game on the start august. Thirty first split double header. Which is the man on. I mean this is a little brain. Baseball brain teaser. It always give it sort of Is spoiled now. Because i'm bringing up on this topic but like it's fun one to say like if let's say guy gets up in the seventh inning and he's sitting three hundred and he strikes out his next plate appearance in that game he gets up. He said in three ten. Like how is that possible this wishing suspended. That's what i was saying like. Obviously i don't think mardi sorta got it does like tulsi answer. Well i know. I said i'm bringing you know. Tell that to your friends if you didn't that off with iconic despoiled and like. I probably forgot what i just said when i wrote don't know you have a really weird brain. Why were coming at stroman Kinda obviously they wasted him now because warmed up pit setting and now he's like pitch for another five days. So you buy the mets. And all he said usually i. I know a lot to command to but he just tweeted out. What we we gotta be a little smarter about this like for people's safety slash like it's raining. How can you would like. Espn's running with like out. He's calling out. The mets like dude. Just like draining and channel. Wait five more days. Yeah i mean it was crazy to start the game and it's wrong culpa. Who was the guy who fucked up the game on thursday where he strikes out and it hits them that was created. We didn't talk about the show. Because i'd have anything afterwards but i mean the fact that that's not reviewable is crazy. Like how can we not review. The only thing it shouldn't be able to review in baseball is a striker like whether the pitch was destroyed. Everything else there should be a role where it's like. Oh we can't look at this. Why wh- how we how we how we game. That decided the game. Also if we're not gonna do this no point to protest games if that game doesn't get overturned because the empire after the game literally admitted i made the wrong call right. Has it purchased ever work. No i don't think so. No one time. I can't i can't imagine i think someone someone replies a twitter minus billy martin every time they used to lose two one team protests the game. I love love that. We used to raise the tropics. You protest tank is gonna die on twitter. Know what is every out man. That guy hates the mets. I can see. I can picture him. Biting his shirt and hat passes correctively falling off. It's tough though because sometimes like like we said like the yankees are on all the time. So i watched them not watching like jared nine. Tv's wants to wash his games. Like i looked at twitter to see what's could see the white sox. Losing by how white sox stage tweeting The mets you just never know nikola with nine nothing. He wants to negotiate their winning six two and like someone throws a ball in the ninth inning game over could lose a game like he has no zero confidence in his team. Ever about this or are we just somebody or we got but aaron hickson thirty seven with the bases loaded in this career that seems impossible How how you that. based how how. How's get a hitman. Imagine if aaron hicks on the mets playing like this for for sure frank tank of the deal and door with endure. aaron hicks his career. Like i mean if he ever sees conforto or ed lose kill. Aaron hicks looks like a met. I'm picturing him in a mets uniform and fits. We played just like to so tara was born to be a map door straight up. Who says no certainly not me or complete all right That's just about it. The show could week not good weekend. Good good sunday To help my sanity. I get through the rest of this day without anything. Any bad thoughts. Thank god Be gear call monday. That should be fun. gabor garrett cole shirks in store They'll sold out his last because it was that good so keep those would be fun.

People say like autumn throws nice. But it's rare to see anyone in person. That's dick had zero people but yeah ballpark. I think we should have an announcement very soon ballpark. And the weight of what the wam described. I've been described it. We go one game at a time. Because the yankees their capacity it's going to fluctuate and so they can't commit to seats in july when they don't know how many people are going to be allowed. So let's say we wanted to time and it's taking a little bit longer. But i think we're close to being able to announce first district setting so maybe look out for that this week on twitter and instagram and all that and obviously it can be very limited seats because it's only at of the only do in ten thousand seats start with so i think deals pretty good. It's a little different than what we've been doing years past so way to officially announce it. What am i the green light but beyond that that's show we'll see you back here.

So make sure to subscribe. Wherever you get your podcasts breaking down all aspects of yankee baseball this is the bronx pinstriped. Show with your host age. Rotan and scott ryan. Let's go what's up everyone. Welcome to the bronx pinstripe. Show episode five hundred. sixteen spring. Training is rolling on and i am covered in urine. Yes that sounds weird. I'm very happy to hear this. You know when you tweeted that it's out of control. It's you've no idea how happy i am to hear this. I i really do think he's it on purpose at this point. He's peed on me almost every day for the for him you any makes he makes eye contact and he's like you know what i know. You just cleaned my diaper and there was. But i got a little more where that came from boom. Here's another here's another shame on you. Shame on you for not having your reflexes down by this point under sending. That's going to happen. What if i told you about expectations. I told you that this this is. This was like Some karate kid shit here wax on wax off. This was preparing you for fatherhood and and you have. You have failed. Let's go you need. Need pair for left hand needs to wax on with the diaper. You're ready to go don't win. He's a week yesterday. He peed all over his face. And we're like hi. Gotten his eyes and he started crying. Hysterically like okay. Let's get him in the bath. So i pick them up and i'm him over to the bath and somehow even pete himself. He peed more on the way to the bat. It's just like it. I know it's been joking. Like i need this. Pptp i've been shamed on twitter. People saying that's a waste of money even though it's like five dollars money they don't sired is bullshit. It's bullshit these are just gimmicks that they get parents to buy things when they're desperate desperate at this point i just i just want to be stopped. P. i wanna be stopped getting pete. I'm like i'm like those are kelly's oh jeez the The thing is you're going to buy it and he's going to stop. That's what happens. Fit whatever is a five dollar purchase. It'll make me feel better. Needs a he needs a p poncho not a pptp. Good for good for you. Keep the keep the industry booming but make make more worthless. Products were three weeks in and Spring training spring training is about a weekend. There's been some some games. Some game action gained. Did you did you. Did you get a little excited. When the first game happened there were some fans in the stands. The yankees always wear their pinstripes for the first for spring training game of the year. There's a little it was a little cool. It was very cool. I loved it. I get one. Seen the fans back in the stands is just exciting to see man you know. I don't know where where we'll get by the end of the year. Hopefully it's More than ten percent I have a feeling the vaccinations Get get further along with With with adults then you know. I think gigi stadium probably opened up more mobile open up more. they pushed the triple. Ac's back a month ish a month. Yeah there's going to be alternate site. In the meantime i could see them just keeping even when the minor league season starts. I could almost see them. Keeping an alternate site going because it is kind of isolate a few players. Maybe yeah just to make sure if something ravages say the scranton clubhouse like cova goes to the scranton clubhouse then the major league team is because that entire squad can't go up even even guy test is not positive for covid if he's in contact with other players who have been positive so i could just see them keeping this alternate site thing going throughout the surprise me. Either and pushing the season back a month. the minor league season. I do understand it because you know major league is they can control a heck of a lot more on the road or with the team is just every day. You're doing things minor leagues are. You know you're you're you're you're in a different situation at that point you. You're with the younger guys. Usually in smaller cities not as much control so pushing it another month. They're staying ramadi pushy getting another month to To to hopefully just again waited out you know. Get some more vaccinations going. I think make sense. Because i think that's what their big fear is. I don't think is as fearful knock on wood with the season and like what's happening up there. Because if they were to hold the dual last year they should be able to do it this year and i think they have a pretty good idea of what's going to happen but the scope of what they're trying to do. This year is much different than what they did us true but i still think that they can take in control a lot. They can control a good amount of what's happening. There's a full schedule like there's an entire schedule. They're they're going to be playing. It's not just playing on your coast right more. The yankees are going to be flying anytime the yankees are going to be flying. that is. that's how that's how it goes you go to the other The other teams park. And you play there and there's gonna be there's going to be there's going to be fans in the stands as i mean if you're in texas or florida screw. It's one hundred percent. Did i know. Texas said one hundred percent did florida also. I don't think so not yet. At least i know the spring training's not so there i think it also depends on obviously the ballparks and the and the team and how they're yes. So that was the governor of texas said one hundred percent so the astros in the rangers could potentially have one hundred percent of people in in their new ballpark in arlington. You gotta show off that. You're the. I love last playoffs when when that ballpark got shamed for looking like a like a like a home depot outside. Her was talking about expectations versus reality. Did you see those memes. Whereas like the the designs for the stadium. They were like this beautiful brick exterior than the actual thing. That looks like a freaking like airplane. Hangar that's like the metlife when metlife isn't on game day. It's just like a a steel. Looks like a an alien came down in the meadowlands dropped because everything is illegal lands. Everything is led depending on who's playing their. The meadowlands is a real sad place. You've got the giant football stadium. You've got this indoor ski hill and you've got a ton of dead bodies buried by the mob somewhere in the fact that ski the fact that the ski slope is actually back back in the plants because it sat there for a while Xanadu sat there for a while. Is it is it. Operational think it's operational yesterday. But i could be wrong. I know it's it's been construction for like eighty five years but the the fact that it gets it's back in action we're like oh yes someone's we're back let's go someone someone in two thousand nineteen. Oh yeah mall big time. Let's go right in the middle of it was just a. It was just a an interesting decision. The fact that there's going to be a ski slope in the mall in the meadowlands. Yeah we'll see how that the scope of the twenty twenty one season. It's a full schedule. It's flying across the country. It's it's fans in the stands whether it's ten percent twenty percent one hundred percent that means clubhouse attendees and personnel all of the different people involved in putting on a major league baseball game. We're going to come in contact with a lot more people. So so my point is yes they they. They plowed through a sixty game schedule. They overcame some hurdles. But there's going to be even with vaccines rolling out. There's a lot more to be overcome this year for what they're trying to understood which is fine but they can also mortar. My point. was. I understand that there are. There are occasions with what's happening. The fact is is that aaa is a you know a less controlled situation and in order for anybody to have replenishment players that can come up and play for guys that get injured. The inevitable happens during a major league baseball season especially to the new york. They have to have those guys ready to go. And if they're you know loosey goosey or just not able to stay on the field. Because of covert than that that becomes a big problem for the major league teams. And i think that is well could affect the major league season more than anything because you know i feel like they're in a good spot with the rest of i think it it kind of does impact the yankees in a negative way though because they were going to have some players who maybe didn't make the opening day roster that they were gonna maybe rely on in late april or early may Say well i know. Clark schmidt was shut down for an injury. But that means you know. His timetable has been pushed back. But miguel and do har is a guy who probably is not going to make the opening day roster but he would have just slotted into the everyday lineup in scranton to get regular at bats immediately called up if they had an injury or debbie garcia might not make the opening day roster starter. Maybe they were going to start him in scranton and get him on a five day schedule ready to go. Now that's pushed back in. An alternate site is not the same is pitching in in a minor league game. It's not the same but you know. Hopefully it's just that muscle and they can get back into the swing so it'll be a it'll be a small small little bump in the road but It'll be fine. I think they'll be good. I'm glad that they're not canceling anything. Because i think that at least not yet for aaa. That would be devastating. I'm surprised how i. How many of these franchises actually survived twenty twenty with not having anybody there. They just didn't operate on a on a lot of cash flow there. There's not a lot of money being generated by main minor league teams and then you lose an entire season. That's gotta be pretty devastating to a lot of a lot of these teams. So i'm glad they're back. You think people are so desperate for entertainment and that they'll they'll they'll go to these minor league games more than i really yes. I'm i want to go anywhere. I don't care what it is. You know what. I mean like. I'll go with it doesn't even matter. How do you go on walks. There could be there. Could they could tell me. There's a game and we could go to the stadium and there's no game like all right you know. It's not my house interests different. Sit there have a different place. You know my my family. We haven't seen each other are very much in person and we my my sister just guy we just got a house down in in the jersey shore for for like four days just that we could meet there and just like have four different walls and and like get a get a bit of just a a little visit a little. Visit changes exactly. It doesn't matter to me. it does not matter. Do you go on walks throughout the day. The you gonna walk. no. I don't know see patients. Don't have the patience to go out and walk haitians. I mean especially. When when i was still living in the city the leeann i would go on a walk usually after work. Five five thirty. We just meet up with with friends that lived in the area and we would walk in the park. That was lazuli. The it was the most interesting thirty minutes of our day everyday because the rest of it was just sitting inside at work or watching. Tv and like being outside. Even if it wasn't in a nice day out it was just like it was like you said it's something different to look at it. It's doing something even if it's just as simple as walk tracker beer eats peanuts sitting in a A shitty stadium seat all day. I will give me that an anti you might drive by that funeral home. That all the guys used to live over and just like i'll watch the grounds crew. Just water the grass and and rake the dirt. That's fine for me to. I'll do that. Play some music in the background maybe some highlights of yesteryear. And let's let's just hang out. I've got something to complain about. That's really that's surprising. I know maybe we talked about. I was gonna have a different attitude this year. Father now things things are. I've gotten priorities in my life. But i saw this from brian hoke on tuesday. He said aaron hicks is envisioned as the yankees number three hitter to begin the season according to manager aaron boone. I know we've beat this to death. Why is aaron hicks hitting third. Is it only. Because he's a switch hitter because if that's the case it's just it's moronic reason the there's no nothing else in his game other than the fact that he can hit left handed that would say that warrants him hitting third what is aaron hicks dwell. He he will get some base. He takes he gets on base. He walks fifteen percent of the time. That's that's a good rate. He strikes out twenty one percent of the time. That's not horrific. But it's not great either. But he's got a two thirty nine batting average. The last three seasons a to sixty five batting average on balls in play. And he's projected i think ziff's projection has amid a to thirty two batting average or two thirty four batting average this year. The guy does not put bat on ball enough to hit third. He walks a lot like you said he's got a three fifty eight on base percentage. Those are good numbers but not for your number three hitter. Hit him leadoff for all. I care i much rather have. Aaron hicks hitting leadoff than hitting third move. Dj down to the to spot or the three spot. Even i would be much happier if the lineup went hicks. Dj judge or hicks judge dj than having hicks third. Because this is how games go. Okay you ready for how games go. Dj lemay who single to right field. Beautiful aaron judge long long long at that maybe works walk or maybe just moves the runner over or something. And then here's aaron hicks taken pitches. All he's going to do he's going to strike out or is going gonna walk. That's always gonna do. He does not put that on ball. Nothing happens except aaron hicks throwing 's bat to the to the bat boy and him walk into first base. That's all iron hicks. I don't know he's got some home run home homerun videos from mlb with a new camera. Look i think that it doesn't again. These these things are so there's such a small discrepancy in how he's going to be shifting this lineup because dj lemay who's not gonna lead knocking to believe the leadoff spot. He's why not get if there was between. If it was up to you and me i agree. I think hicks is a perfect leadoff hitter. Because of the fact that he does the switch hitter comes back into play to me when the lineup turned over which is a very good then. Because now you're setting up your productive guys in front of you've got one non right handed hitter in the everyday lineup. It does not matter where he hits. They're still going to be eight consecutive right handed hitters and then aaron hicks no matter where you put him in the lineup. It's like aaron. Boone doesn't understand mental the fact that he gets on base a lot and we'll would set up better for i love digital making this in the to spot like to me. That's i know it's more traditional. Because he's that type. He's a derek jeter of the team. He's the he's the best guy more traditional ball he he gets on base a ton. Yeah he should be in the second spot. He goes the opposite field which he can move a guy from first to third. That's that's the old approach. That's the let's let's get guys running on the base path and and try to score runs in that way. Aaron aaron hicks talking about the power talking about being healthy. They're trying to get that big ball and that's that's that's one of the reasons he's there because he can hit that home run ball and if he's healthy and in the lineup who hit more home runs that him stanton hits more home runs him his more home runs and but they're but they're not they're not switch hitters. Oh my it's i know it's i know this is not you. If that is legitimate. I know this is not you talking. It's a horrible reason. Just to bet hicks third. It's it's fine. It'll be so the fact that that this is. I just want to be healthy. I want hicks to be healthy. And if he's in the three spot unhealthy. I'm good with that. Let's see what happens with him in this in the three spot and healthy because it seems like we haven't seen him we've seen it. It's not if he's got. He's got a healthy stanton behind him. If gary sanchez is hitting home runs like he did the other day. Hey you know now now. Aaron hicks is going to be getting a lot more balls over the strike zone and you know therefore more more damage potentially i. I'm just confused. Because i know the yankees are so analytically driven in some aspects in this this kind of goes counter to analytics analytics would say hit hicks leadoff and then bat lemay mayhew behind him because lemay who puts bat on ball and bat on ball. When there's a runner on first base is good so is that is that it'll that i tested telling you that because that's that's what it seems like the logical thing to do no that's analytics. That's literally analytics. Aaron hicks walks a lot digital matt who puts bat on ball. That's what the analytics say. Yeah and that's what the i say. That's so what i think this is. I think this is aaron boone member. How last year we talked about. It came out that the analytics department gave all the information for that game to debauchery where they're like. Here's what we think would be a good decision for you to make but it's still up to you. But here's all the information about debbie garcia and j versus the tampa bay rays. What's happening here. It's here's all the information that we're going to give you but now you need to make a key decision. And he's making the wrong decision he thinks just because all i need to break up the right handed hitters. I can't have nine right handed hitter. I can have eight right handed hitters in a row to start the lineup. Oh you're going to have as soon as aaron hicks has done batting. It's just so shortsighted. Yeah no look. I think that when you're looking at aaron hicks and you're looking at aaron boone. They have a track record and aaron. Boone likes track record and he likes the fact that he can hit left if needed and it does break it up. And that's what aaron. Boone likes to see his test is like i need to see a lefty up right now. And that's right. That's why aaron hicks is there. There's there's really not much else to it. Is the breaking them up. That's to be to be honest in a perfect world. I would hit hick's knife. And then i know ninth is. You're like a wall. He's a better hitter than some other guys. So why do you want him. Nice because then ninth nine. One two is awesome. That's kind of second. Leadoff guy wants the lineup. Turnover turns over. Then you're in that same position. So i disagree i think is is is the perfect number two guy and then you have big bop guys at three and four. Aaron judge to music number three hitter all day long. And you go from there. i think gleyber is. Is you know. I'm expecting good. You're out of labor. And i could see him. Even in the three spot. To long-term they tried that at the beginning of two thousand nineteen in. He struggled a little bit. Maybe he was putting too much pressure on himself was anointed the everyday shortstop and the number three hitter on the nets a lot. That's a lot yet some lingering hip issues and you know the the. I think this is a big year for labor. So we'll see what we'll see how he He comes back But i see him as a number three long-term but in aaron boone's lineup might be brett gardner There's some worry. That chad greene might not be. Okay my record. There's some worry. That chad greene might not be okay. He was scheduled to pitch on tuesday but then he was held back. boone's quote was. We're just trying to be wise and slow player. Higher leverage relievers as far as game action or trying to be mindful of innings. Coming off the last season i thought that everybody pitch fewer innings than they ever had in their entire life. Yeah i think the look chad. Green to me is a is a big piece of this. Because he's got to step up and now take a even bigger role He's he's he's become a leader. I guess in the in the bullpen. Now with some of these you know some of departures. He's he's really got to be a lockdown guy for you know he's got to be the dependable guy in the back of the pen other than other than chapman. And then you have written but chad grainger number three guy they gotta they gotta be careful with him but he also has to come out and prove that he can be that guy the entire time. We've seen too many too many years now with chad green coming in and like disappearing for a month or not being the same guy after a second inning of work. They just need to figure out what he is and he needs to lock in no matter what the back of that in the back of open. Yeah they also in hoax notes. He mentioned the yankees are probably going to carry eight relievers to start the season. Six of those guys are are pretty clear. Cut chapman britain. Green darren o'day justin wilson and he puts lewis sessa in that group my guy and then he also said boone and matt blake are both high on nick nelson zim. I look at this. we're all. We're in synch. Your this is this is beautiful nick. Nelson pitched well in his spring debut. But nick nelson could kind of be. What chad green was maybe three years ago. Yeah lewis has has slowly become. I'd say version of fine lewis. Ah has not become that yet. You keys pushing the louise. Because he's not a one to two in guy he's definitely more of that bridge guy but he's been an effective bridge guy so he's been asked to play a different role he's not been asked to play that same role. I do see nick nelson translating into a guy that could come in throw gas control a strike zone and be good. He was impressive us. Your i've been shy about this. Big nelson has a real place in the bullpen. And i think that the yankees like him and the fact that we're talking about right now and that Mardi mardi gras marty. Blake is talking about it. I'm trying to come up with a wrong last. I couldn't The fact that they're talking about in this early in spring leads me to believe that they. They've got some pretty high expectations coming into the season for for nikki nelson here all the be last names out there. We stumbled brown. Berg could've been anything so that maybe the eighth spot who who you think for that eight spot in the bullpen. They're going to be michael king because they just want someone who they are we. Are we re flipping back. Everybody i look nyc cooking's a nice guy. He's not a major league pitcher. i mean. no he. He was bad in his first outing in spring. I did that. Doesn't mean anything but at the same time we saw what he is. He's just not a guy that puts anything he's there's nothing special there he's a four a guy he's the rob schneider of pitching That might be the case. But i think they like having someone who they can use. This is going to sound bad. And i like michael king As as we all know they like having someone on the roster that they can do anything with and if they mess him up they don't care that's fine. There's a tax shouldn't be in the on the major league teams yum not disagreeing with you but to start the season. Especially because if there's no clear cut starting role for debbie garcia and clark schmidt is still working back from they care about those two no so but what i'm saying is they can have michael king on the roster and then if they have a double-header or if someone gets knocked out in the second inning they can throw him out there and then immediately sent him back down to alternate site and it's no it's no different they don't care no that's true that's exactly. They like having the flexibility. Get that that's fine. That does not change the point that he is not a major league. Pitcher key may have his moments where we're like. Oh there he is. Let's go give them the fifth starting job and then and then he'll get the five spine do you remember. He showed flashes last year. Where for two innings. He would look good. He would keep the ball on the ground. And then boone would try and push them out there for a third inning. Maybe second time to the order and he would get the last year or was it end of twenty nine thousand nine hundred and saw that was last year end of twenty nine thousand nine. He only made his made one appearance. That was really blending together. Twenty twenty. it's a figure but He he would come in for two innings of relief and maybe he'd give up a couple of hits. Maybe one run and you say okay. That was a decent adding for my cooking and then will push him out there for third inning and he couldn't get out of the inning and he would give up four runs so it was too many instances like that. So does that mean. Michael king is not a- long-term major league pitcher maybe because if you can't pitch more than two innings and you're supposed to be a starting pitcher then you're probably not and he also doesn't like his stuff doesn't translate to be a one guy out of the bullpen ineffective high leverage bullpen guy. No it doesn't. He's a ground ball pitcher who's been working on his changeup. This offseason said he needs to throw more changeups. So but if or is that aaron. Boone not recognizing this guy is not going to succeed in the situation to get him out sooner than later. Maybe it's a little bit of both. Well yeah but at some point to stop making pitching changes and let a guy go because can run out of pitchers especially when everybody is a one hundred twenty one hundred and thirty one hundred and forty inning guy in going into the season segue you. That's a really good sessional segue. It was so. I wanted to talk about expectations for jamieson. Diane who he was asked by reporters. I believe this was in his first spring media session. He was asked about returning from. Tommy john surgery second. Tommy john surgery and the number of innings he might pitch. He said we haven't had that talk yet about any set number. I thought originally one hundred and twenty to one hundred and fifty but that being said i'm kind of on board with the idea of. Let's just see how feeling throughout the year. Why put a limit on something. If i'm feeling great at one hundred forty innings. There's no need to cap it. That's my thinking i. He mentioned one twenty to one fifty. He also said one forty. And if i'm feeling great let's keep pushing it this kind of telling me though that they're the he's going to be about a one hundred and forty inning best case scenario pitcher this year. We'll know i think what this tells you is the best case scenario. He's going to do however he feels. you know good. Look there waters with him. So there's nothing that says. Limit your guy. After two tommy john surgeries after one hundred and forty innings and he will be less likely to nito third. Tommy john surgery. I don't know what we're doing there. If he's feeling good then he's feeling good and we can say good job. Doc the surgeries worked. This is what it's supposed to do. Now go out there and pitch. Because that's what you're getting paid to do. I don't see why if we're at one hundred and forty pitchers or if he's feeling good at one hundred pitches while they're going to be pulling him in the fifth innings earning. Sorry if they're going to be pulling him at you know the fifth inning when he's at one hundred innings just to make sure that we get two hundred and forty closer to that you know how they like to tinker. They love to manage guys innings. And they've done it for decade and it has right so then. That's why i'm hoping that. Maybe maybe maybe maybe maybe we can go away from that philosophy and just let guys you know pets when they feel good and if they feel good they should throw and if they feel good on a particular game though if the fee if the feeling of their pitch is good they have confidence in the air over the locate. A pitch. Pitching a certain Fifth inning but they still feel like they have you know some in the tank. Tanakh is not here. He's nobody's saying. I have nothing in the tank in in in in the fifth inning or going into the fifth inning. If they if they're guys feel good and they are showing that they feel good and there's nothing visible saying okay. this guy. his stuff is off. His stuff is is lagging because he's getting tired. Let him pitch in pets. This is what they've meant to do this there they were brought up to do. They've been playing baseball their entire life and throwing innings. Let them throw. It drives me insane. One hundred forty innings is twenty eight starts at five innings per start. The the thing is that one hundred and forty innings inning four inning five innings one hundred and fifty six. Any one of them could be the last inning. Any one of them it. There's a the percents as you go with the with the With the innings into the season. And you know there's fatigue in the arm and such but unless you're unless you're showing something that were the fatigue is is is causing a a weakness in a ligament or whatever they're looking at if they identify that then okay you your guy but if you don't identify that i don't know what the this is what they're built to do so. This is not about injury this is about workload and what the yankees can expect from their group of starting pitchers after garrett cole. Because i think even in a in a great scenario this season jamieson tions not throwing more than one hundred fifty six. He's not going to be one hundred eighty inning guy. Which which is a horse that you understand you have you have garrett cole who's gonna pitch close to two hundred innings or or more than two hundred innings probably hopefully thirty starts seven innings a start every time garrett cole then you have kluber tyron montgomery garcia king schmidt and severino all who are going to get one hundred to one hundred forty innings. Like you're not gonna get. Let me tell you the difference here. There's a big difference. It's a hodgepodge you're going to be trying to just collect innings out of the rest of. That's fine but it's going to feel different. I feel like it's going to. It's going to feel different this year. Because it's because the taxing and it's not muster not walk. The reason why is and this is what i'm hopeful for those one hundred and forty innings from jamison. Tian are not okay. You're running out there every fifth day and were pulling you in the fifth inning. Those one hundred and forty innings may be. Are you sure second. There may be opportunities because of the the names that you mentioned because there are so many guys that could come in and potentially fill a role within the starting rotation and you know who knows when when he comes back what he's going to be like if he's able to Slot in there for x. Amount of innings. I think we're gonna see skip starts at. They were going to see you know guys coming in and being able to to throw in a rotation spot rather than that feels different to me than a guy going. Jason is getting going out and giving me six innings and getting one hundred and forty innings but his number of starts is lower. Okay now we're talking now. We're using what we have. We're not being overly cautious within the game. Because that's what drives me. Nuts is within the game management so understanding that the pitches and the innings counting four fifth. Inning gotta go get him whereas he could skip a start. You know in june august. You're talking six man rotation. I think there's going to be a semblance of that as we're going to have so many unknown right now with with the injuries old guys and then coming off of a short season. They're going to be monitoring so closely. How these guys are are acting. You know because their last year was weird. You mentioned chad green. You know going out and throwing their watching innings because they don't know how these guys are arms are gonna react after a short season and what happened last year. I think that's an unknown that they're keeping a close eye on so it would not surprise me if we have a six at toby fresher fat wouldn't logic dictate their fresher will know you could say that there's extra strain because they didn't. I mean there are a ton of injuries last year because of the way that they prepared for this short season as well there are a lot of under a lot of very different things that happened last year. That could play differently on the way that your arm is long-term the way that you prepare in the off season. I just think that they're looking at that. As a as an odd duckling and saying okay. We don't know what we've never seen this before. Let's see how they react. Garrett kohl's pitching every fifth day so that means that for the rest of the guys if you're talking about skipping starts you're you're playing with those other four spots you're not playing with garrett cole spot i think i think jordan montgomery is feels like a guy. That's obviously a hate having this caveat every single time but injury he seems like he's beyond that healthy guy doored montgomery seems pretty locked in with guy. Refined you would say not saying. He's the number two. I'm every five days. Come out right. Call montgomery every fifth day. What about kluber veteran. Who's maybe very about his workload in his routines. I don't kluber doesn't strike me as a guy who's going to be like yes. Get me every every round every every other around. But i could see them skipping him for a bit. Yeah i could see that too. I could see the managing the ski. The schedule is going to be a little fluid where there's gonna be some extra doubleheaders and stuff like that But that doesn't mean you that means you can have a six man rotation because you're going to need an extra starter but that doesn't mean guys get extra day it's not going to feel like a six man rotation that's the thing with some of these young like you said some of the the seven inning games as well. You're just going to be getting more of these. These bullpen days. I think to some these guys that and that's where lewis says a micro king and guys like that. Come into play because you say say montgomery or tie on start game. One of double header. Hopefully they give you five plus six plus innings and you can use chapman to close out the game then then game two. You might see michael king for two innings. You might see louis sesa for three innings and then you might go to the bullpen. Then there's a skip start. There's just skip day. i hear you. I hear what you're saying but the fact that some of those guys are have the ability to go longer. They they could go three four five innings. I just think that we're gonna see that more often especially with with suber and tie on and severino coming back and who knows with her mind. I think they're going to run her mind into the ground. He's another guy there like. Let's just run you into the ground. It's see the fifth starter. Is he the fifth starter to start the season. he like. he's starting. I believe on friday this week when you when you look at it on paper starter. So that means is not in the rotation. I think. I think that unless they believe that. This alternate side changes things in the way. The debbie is preparing for the season. I could see them not having him on the roster in the beginning of the year. I really we talk this. They're going to do they're gonna they're either gonna see. I think are going to see what dig. Herman has an early in the season if they are like. He's not pitching well so there's going to be that's filthy. That's like oh if he's pitching well we'll put up with him but if he's not pitching well we won't put up with them. That's just it's so to face at the end of the day to business. I don't know what to tell you you know. It's not his feelings there. They're going to go out there and they're going to see if this guy can throw in if you can't throw then it's going to become not worth it in their is remember. We talked that fan. Grass projected the yankees to be the most valuable rotation in baseball. This is before. The dodgers signed Trevor bauer so now. The dodgers rotation is projected to be higher than the yankees but the yankees at one point where projected to accumulate the most war among their amongst their rotation. I i i think that because it's maybe seven is deep. I agree with you. But that's assuming all seven guys are getting pretty regular starts. And i think as we've talked. Maybe that's the case. But that's that's a. That's a lot to manage a lot. That's a lot to have go right you have garrett cole who's your guy every fifth day and then it's a lot of moving parts so yes it could go great and maybe it's just manage it until we get to august september october. Then line our guys up for for the plots. Exactly what's going to happen. And i and i guess i'm okay with that because the american league is a little bit down the The yankees should win the american league east. No problem even though the razor still going to be competitive. The blue jays got better. Maybe the red sox are completely forgot about the orioles. No chris sale. He's he had tommy. John surgery was going to be playing in the. i think. he's kind of like on a severino timetable. I just forgot about him. Until i saw his acis. Acis biannic armaments rod e rodriguez. But i don't know i mean. He had covert us year and he had some cupcakes you had. You had a heart complication. I don't even think it was a covert or yeah. He did if govan and there was a heart condition. That's scariest shit but yeah. Yeah and they've got atom out of you know who can strike out williams and bieber just lying them up lineup. Those cryogenically frozen guys. I got him. they still have the frozen handle. The problem is they're just going to look at the pitch to their the he's gonna walk pretty sure ted williams and babe ruth both had good is. It doesn't matter. They both frozen swing the bat. Hey out of you know you still to throw a strike. I do kinda respect him. Doubling down though i mean he was asked pointblank the question he was. He did a radio interview and they brought up the bay bridge comments. And then they said oh. How would you do against ted williams baiting. And he said i think i do. I think i'd do all right. This is a guy who just got salary dumped to a rival because he was ineffective. I mean you might as well at that point you might as well double it worked for him. The first time he was good out of the gate. So maybe it'll work again. You guys want to tell you about a program. And i'm involved with called bluer hustle. It's a new program over a blue wire that allows you guys to either level up if you have an existing podcast or if you're looking to start a new podcast. It gives you an opportunity to jump out of the gate with success. Not have to go through all of the different pain points. That issue and i started with when we started podcast six years ago. Plus there's one hundred fifty other postles inside the program that are going through this exact motion. It's a big community. There's a community discord. You get your cover art designed for you you get. The simple cast. Posting comes with this program. It's all fifteen bucks a month which is insanely cheap because most hosting platforms are more expensive just to host your account. Don't come with any of the things that come to our house. Also if you're looking to start a podcast about any of the tri-state area sports this Perfect opportunity if you're out of the area and you have passion for another sport. This is a great opportunity for you to learn alone and really. Just let lean on a community to to help you. Get through the beginnings of podcasts. Because it's it's tough in the beginning to doubt about it It takes patients but also you don't need to make the same mistakes you don't need to go through the same trials and tribulations that everybody else has done. Lean on everybody in this program for that experience and to teach ways that are successful that have proved well in the past There's an e learning course that goes along with this again a lot of really good benefits that come along hustle. There are different flights for are hustle. And i think the next one's going in in about two weeks so definitely get your application and go to be w hustle dot com slash. Join and get your application in their. Bwi hustled dot com slash. Join our andrew. We're going to do something a little bit different. I had to come out of the break there. That was a different move what we are. We are partnering up with a an app at blue wire. We're partnering up with these guys locker room. I don't know if you guys are paying attention to what's going on in the social audio space but There's a few apps that are popping up and pretty pretty popular clubhouse being the one you're seeing a lot of people on On klaus lot of celebrities. Elon musk's been going on there. I think bill gates was on their Mark cuban goes on their pops into these joe. Rogan did with tim dillon. Got some stuff there. There's a lot there's a lot of. I don't know i've been on there. There's a lot of trash on there but there's some interesting conversations on there as well But locker room is actually a sports audio that we're going to be a mess around with I'm excited for this. Because i think it's it's one. It's a the audio social audio spaces is interesting to me because you just have free flowing conversations like we're doing right now on a podcast but you include more people so this is a great way for us to engage more with With yankee fans and bring everybody collectively together to have some open conversations we can bring people into the conversation you can raise your hand and come on can have multiple people with a you know a roundtable discussion. We can do. Ama's bringing you know different different guests. It's interesting so we're gonna be doing this probably about once a week and our first one. I think we're going to do is thursday to tomorrow. Thursday afternoon during the game yankees spring training game. So ideally this is going to be something we we do during games because we want to bring people on like you said we wanna talk about what's happening we interact with the fans. We did the test. We did that. now back in january fan cred and that was a lot of fun But we think this locker room is a better app and we think that it It will be something. We do all season very excited about on a weekly basis so thursday afternoon during the one o'clock yankees game probably be around maybe the second or third that we jump out there. I have a have a one o'clock meeting and then after that we're going to jump in and And hang out for a half hour forty five minutes. Our see how it goes and talks to download the app. It'll be on our twitter feeds Where you can join but download the locker room app and then you could search for scott or myself and then you can follow us and then you could join join just like that. It's it's a very easy app to us but Definitely look forward to that on thursday. We'll think about those two real quick. Sorry the The locker room the we we have the ability to record those and save them so we can We can put them on our feet as well as like a locker room session right. So if you're on their you'll be famous pretty cool. Got a question for you. Does miguel and do have any sort of a role on the twenty. Twenty one yankees. Yes i think he does. I think he does because he hit. And if he can prove again that he can hit consistently. I think that Market be bit of an x factor. Never know who the x factor. You know how that goes. When i that label to guys like the thing is with andrew harr is that he can be an x factor in multiple ways one he he can play different positions. That's that's a that's a positive stalled on and then also know he cannot can't continue. He can't play my multiple positions you by d. h. She can play left field. He could play first base. He could sometimes played thirty he but also when he can do is he can hit. He can hit well and when he we have to see if he can hit without consistent at bats. That's going to be a big deal for him to prove. But the x factor from me for npr. If he can show that he's that hitter and who knows with injuries he make it more of an opportunity to get more consistent at bats as well. But i think the trade deadline. He's also a big reason. Why he's the x factor. Because i think he's probably the most valuable asset on the team right now if he can re show his value because he's still a young guy can still go to another team and help out and be a You know a big bat in a lineup. And i think that there is good value that the yankees could could play with depending on what they're needing at trade deadline so i think that brian cashman is hoping and praying that when gillan heart does get opportunities that he succeeds and takes advantage of them. Because i think that they're looking to trade him very soon the only way he has a role on the yankees is if jio are shallow. Goes down with a pretty bad injury. Or if giancarlo stanton goes down with a pretty bad injury because the only two spots that andrew harr we'll get consistent playing time as third base. They'll put up with it because he's done it before or d. h. And aaron boone talked about it and kind of alluded to clint frazier instead we saw. Clint frazier tom. Frazier got an opportunity last year and he proved himself and now look. Clint frazier is going to be an everyday part of this this team so yeah i could see a scenario that if there's injuries and do our could step back in but if the yankees are pretty healthy i don't see how he has any kind of role. Boone said he could he could very much be in that mix. That's boone speak to note. He's not in the mix. It's speak to saying yeah. He's a good player. We value him. Come come give me offers for this player as well. No one's trading. But the thing is like you i mean they could they could Mcgee's definitely A double a decent pitching prospect trade away. That's that's what he is right now but if you can show that he's You know more valuable and regain that form. That i think everybody thought he was going to be after his His rookie year where he should have won. Rookie of the year. Then yes he becomes more valuable and you put together some kind of package and now you're you're looking at a potential asset to come over and help you wanna championship. So the other piece of this is your right. Jewish ella if he goes down mega mega steps in. It doesn't have to be a major injury like you're saying you're shallows had you know. He had some cleanup in his elbow. If he's not playing well after that if we see that him coming in starting slow i could see maggie getting pats. I could see megi going over there. Maybe boone is talking about the fact that we saw clint frazier. Go from a guy who can't play on your little league outfield to a guy. That's now considered for a gold glove outfield. Maybe he's looking for that kind of rebound from npr to be a gold glove type. Their baseman clint frazier was better defensively than before last year than into is clint. Frazier had clint frazier's worse than me was his own head is designed and do hearts. Worst enemy defensively. He can't play defense. is the skills. Well so i. I think we both agree that there Both of these guys in the end. They're they're there for their pets. That's the reason why they have you know. They wrote the ranks. That's why they got to the major leagues in the first place. That's why they had you know there were touted as prospects was because of their bass. It wasn't because their defense it was because of their bat. So if can re regain some semblance of that form then. I think that he does have He does i value and we look. We were acting like they're not going to be injuries on this team. E even if there are not long-term injuries there's there's there are injuries. There are times where guys these days off. Mcgee's a good bat to plug in so gio had the elbow surgery so in theory and do her should be getting a lot of at bats this spring to prove to the yankees hit an. I deserve to be on the roster to start the season. Just just. Because i'm doing well in spring so this opportunity to to at least get there. I agree and i. I'm ruined for him. I love watching maggie play. I think he's a fun guy to watch hit. He's my he's my style swings up but he makes a lot of contact. He's he's kind of the Compared him to the vlad guerrero type. He's the anti erin. Hippies the entire next he makes contact. That's right does not walk the vlad type gut compared him to a hall of fame. You say that. Every time i gotta type thing an eye hand coordination so like just like Jason dominic's to a shitty player. I don't understand how you how do you compare anybody to a bad player. If you're trying to speak highly of or a natural do you compare that to a bad player. No but maybe not a hall of famer because jess on dominguez who has needs a professional baseball game yet is being to somehow the love child of mickey mantle and mike trout and i think the other there was another there was a third was was willie mays or was somebody another comparison. That was very fair. Some other baseball legend. Yes no pressure kid. Did you see that. The yankees were at the Showcase nss gotta see what's up of see what's going on their seat. See what's up there. We've got some questions before we close out the first one is from caroline patois high from buffalo of. I guess that's a nickname for buffalo. I love you guys for wanting. Get rid of her mind. Thank you for providing us girlfriends with non sex with a non-sexist platform to really enjoy our boys. It's so refreshing. Shame on cashman. We are the new york yankees. This is not us. I think there's a lot of people out there. And maybe it's more women than men that have caroline's point of view. Why even give this guy an opportunity. Just cut his ass yeah. There's a lot of people that think that you and i disagree with that It's not fun to watch that guy. I pitch when you're rooting for your baseball team. And the guy on the mound is an asshole. Not it's not. I know that there are existing players that are in a similar boat on the yankees to. It's it puts the fans in a position where you know. You're you're rooting for team. That you root your entire life. You have all this this these emotions when you're watching the new york yankees and you know maybe before. We just didn't know a lot about some of the bad things these guys did. And now we know a lot more. He didn't we just didn't we just end and it but but that's the reality. That is exactly what's happening right now. We do know you can't get away from our brains. We do know we know so. It changes things it just does. Yeah and. I think that there's going to be some bad publicity. If the yankees wait to cut him after he's got a five point seventy or something like that i. Just don't i think. I think i think that steinburner does care about public perception. Okay then why is he still on the team. If you think he cares so much he cares. More about okay. There you go with what rules we know but rules the game. It's the business of the game. It's getting value out of a player on the field. You know some of the other stuff is just. It's not in the in the exit the nerds on. Don't see that the dollar signs don't see that the value does and see that people see that with there is this is. This is a big test thing. Just get rid of him. The next question's from bobby thomson's shot heard round the world one of the most famous Cheating moments in baseball he catches for ridge. Country club with yogi berra. And and did you really. Wow what was that like. It was also. I've told this story before this you don't you have got you. Don't listen to what that's true but you have told stories about caddying at ridgewood country club. You never said you caddied for yoga and bob. This is probably the only story i told from. Ridgewood country club days. Because it's the only one that's worth a damn. No you've told ridgewood country club stories about how they stiff you. That's just not true. I've never i think you're making things. Now i think the pe- the urine has gone to your brain so the on mondays at ridgewood country club. They do what they do anymore if they still do this. I'm sure they do but Mondays were were outing day. So companies would would take over the club. Essentially they would pay to have their company outings and at ridgewood you had to have caddies so we would four caddy. Everybody was in carts. We carried putters. You fourcade you're down there. You chuck the balls when the when guys. Pitching wedges is out and supposedly landed on the green you'd swap their putter for the pitching wedge. You clean it. Put it in the cart. Go ten the flag. It was a great day usually got a lot of beer because the guys would just like just give you beard no matter how how old you worked at matter and the there was always an envelope at the end seems pro company. Gave you an envelope. Usually fifty sixty bucks something like that. I think around their cash and then guys would always tip you on top of that always and that was those were the days you could make a lot of money. It was not very hard work. You didn't have to carry bags. My i got lucky one day and it was Dave the butcher yogi. Berra and bobby thomson and then. It was a new york giants offensive linemen from the early nineties late eighties. I don't remember his name. So that was the foursome. The i t. I t box whole whole number one. Think it's the east course. At ridgewood to the info in front of the caddy shed yogis on the first tee. Were down one hundred and fifty yards beyond the fence Down in the fairway yogi. Hit the ball off the tee it goes towards the clubhouse over the the the the cart the car path. Over towards the putting green hits. A tree bounces back into the middle of the fairway. Yes i remember the whole any over till it's all set yogi gets clubhouse yogi yogi gets you know so. He's not very not very long in the fairway. He's dead center. Hold route this point. I started when i was fourteen. I think so. I was probably to get that group. I was probably older. So i assume was seventeen maybe eighteen. So you're aware of who your sarah was definitely and what about the most. Did i knew. I knew the shot around the world. Did you have like david. I knew who dave the butcher was. I knew he played for the knicks. Did you have like a star. Were you starstruck when you met yogi. I don't remember the feeling. I drank a lot in college. That killed a lot of my memories. Before that i think but i i i do remember being in awe. You know. it wasn't like starstruck. I was just like i was like I don't know if that's the same. Maybe that's the same. But i was in meeting meeting. Someone like yogi when you were seventeen years old. So this is what like nineteen ninety seven years ago. Okay in nineteen ninety seven. You didn't watch yogi bear play. He was before your time. But obviously you know of the ledger yogi berra. I feel like that's a great person to me because you're not like oh my god. I watched you if you met. Derek jeeter no. But i think it's even more because derrick jeeter if i met derek jeter today i would just have i would. I would want to have a beer with him and like hang out. But but yogi berra was connick. He because i didn't watch him play. He was just figure. But derek jeter is not going to hang out. My my point is that. I see them very differently. Yogi berra was a was a. He's the easter bunny. He's santa claus. He's all of these things that you've never seen before. You know the lure of yogi baron you know. And the plus you have all the off the field things with him with the sayings and he's just like a the he's almost like a i had the yoga 'isms bota. Did you have the yoga i have. It was like this little coffee table book with like yoga sayings in it and each one had like a little story about how he came up with that saying a half the saints. He didn't even see. I don't. I don't know if i had i had like four or five yogi books but But yeah it was it was. It was pretty awesome. I was. I was definitely in in awe like i was in the In like there was a bigger a bigger thing happening like a a higher higher power in the group with yogi. Berra there. 'cause he's exactly what you think he's going to be just like the nicest guy in the world. That's what i remember. I don't remember specific conversations. But i remember him being the nicest guy in the world and i remember coming out of it thinking that man. That's exactly the way i expected him to be like. One liners galore just being funny and just super happy It was cool. So bobby says there's some drama in the nfl right. Now we're quarterbacks want to be more involved in roster decisions to oversimplify to what extent do you think this happens on the yankees seems like a guy like garrett cole already has cashman's ear this early in his tenure now. This is what. I would love to be on club on cope locker room for so i could ask bobby specifically what he's talking about i think he's talking about the thanh acquisition in the torino signing. Oh you mean like with the moves. Okay yeah that makes sense. Yeah like i wanna know okay. Does garrett cole have sway in the clubhouse yes obviously you give a guy that kind of contract to be the man yes. He's one of the leaders on the team. But specifically. I want to know what bobby is talking about. I have to imagine it's the torino entire probably well and also and i wouldn't be surprised if they said if kluber has something to do with us to look. I think that. I think that garrett cole not more of a map blake thing in a in a cressey thing maybe i mean maybe that's good point But i think that garrett cole could take some i could see garrett cole wanting him to come in so he could drain the learnings out of him. He's like one of the year he's such a. He's such a student of the game. He's like the monster jam dollars of corey kluber done. Yes now but i when you right when you give a guy that much money when you give guy that much money one. You're giving the money to him for a reason. He's he's very good at what he does. And the way that that garrett cole i conducts himself he's just i trust his opinion. I've never talked to the man in my life. I've seen him pech. But i trust his opinion because of the way that he goes about his job and the way that he goes about the The his profession. It seems like he's a guy that takes a lot of pride in what he does is very very calculated with his approach and has some good opinions because he does things a little differently. And i i think that they should listen to him. I think that having a guy like that is bringing in as you and and being a consultant type. Because he's on the team and you trust them that much to give him that much money. You should weigh the opinions of your star players. Of course yeah. I don't see this as cold dictating. You need to go out and trade for on you need to go out and sign torino's i think it's maybe cashman talked to call about both of those mood because cole played with both of those guys and maybe he gave them a good recommendation. And that's great. It's not like the nfl. Where when you're the quarterback you control the entire team because you're the most important player on the field garrick calls the most important player on the field one out of five games and then he doesn't affect me so you're never going to have as much sway as baseball player as you can as a nfl quarterback or a mba. Everything literally goes through the quarterback. So yeah i mean every single every single play. Every single plays dictated by by one person for for for you to some respect but but again. So if you're russell wilson. I think he's probably talking about like russell. Wilson is is potentially shooting his way out of seattle and kind of dictating where he wants to go and shawn watson. We saw it with. Tom brady last year yet. If you're one of those guys you can do that because without you. Your team is nothing without to be clear without garrett cole. This team is nothing. They're not world series contention but they're still playing last. Confession hit their way into the playoffs. Probably but. I'm glad. I'm glad i'm listening to of course you have a guy like that you pay for him. You're not you're paying for his production on the field but you're also paying for everything else that comes with it you should be. You should be getting as much as you possibly can. So bobby like joined. The locker room thing on thursday afternoon and talk more about it. Maybe maybe we didn't mention something about this that that you want to discuss But appreciate it. Appreciate the mail bags and all that kind of stuff. During the one o'clock game on thursday afternoon we'll be on locker room. Check us out there. We got wrap this up now though.

Let's go what's up everybody. Welcome to the bronx striped show. I think the number five hundred. Thirty one Andy martino episode talking about his book about the ashes cheating scandal came out wednesday morning. Hope you guys listen to that and enjoyed it. I certainly had a fun time. Talk to him scott. Today we're going to talk about something we've definitely touchdown in the past but is now a hot button issue. I don't know and yankees twitter because we've got to find something to talk about and complain about it. The lineup construction. It's one thing about aaron hicks third if that's the yankees plan at least until they move them out of there and dropped into the number five spot because he's struggling so bad okay but when the lineup came out on tuesday night and brett gardner was batting third seemingly only the only reason i can think of is because he's a left handed hitter. I think we need to have this conversation and we got a mailbag question from james. I'm gonna kick it off with with this with this question not to belabor the hick's batting third discussion but one of the arguments for hick's batting in that spot has been the analytic. Say you shouldn't hit your best hitter third but if you look around the league opening week almost every team is batting. Their best guy. Third trout at bregman harper ramirez abreu aeronautical and on and on has think our thinking around lineup. Construction changed again are the yankees behind the times. This got me down a rabbit hole of nerd blogs on and what the optimal way to do it so i figured this is perfect. Chance to bring back. I test versus nerd test right. How much does batting order matter. How should the yankees be constructing the lineup. This this is what. I test versus. Nerd test is made for. This is exactly what it's made for. And what's up. I i i'm excited for this one. Because you know when you dive deeper into some of the analytics and you look at what the nerds are saying about why. Things are more important than other things. It drives me a little. A little bonkers. So i'm glad that we can flesh this out a little bit more and get into some Deeper dive on this lineup construction. Because when you have brett gardner hitting the three this is something has definitely happened before i know. I know that It's happened in the past in playoffs. Tap into in different scenarios because aaron boone mixing up the lefties and when you only have handful lefties only so many things you can do so yeah. Let's let's let's get into this and why things are actually happening. So i wanna start by this. I'm going to start the beginning. And maybe people listening are going to say of course da but this is where i'm going to start because i think it helps contextual is where we're going to go where it's going to get pretty complicated even even my head was spinning when i was reading the stuff yesterday. So why is the batting order. Important each place in the order effects two things the number of plate appearances they are likely to see each game and the number of baserunners likely to be on base when they bat literally. If you just boil it down to the basics effects those two things right they said players in the goal here is players that specific skills can provide an extra benefit at certain places in the order. An arm based guy in the leadoff spot is good because he gets on base more for your in theory number two three four five hitters. Who are more run producers. Also the other thing flipside you want to mitigate negative impact that untalented hitters have an important part of the lineup. So if brett gardner at age thirty eight years older as my dad texted me age fifty. Five years old is batting. Third ahead of giancarlo. Stanton gleyber torres. Clint frazier. That might not be the best thing. Because you're actually adding a negative where you should be trying to add a positive we get those those make sense those all make sense. There's all make sense. I think that yes. They all make sense now. And this is where the test versus. The nerd. Test comes in because historically. There's a traditional way to approach the lineup. Which is the leadoff. Hitter is a guy who can get on base run fast steal a bag etc. The number two guys always a bat control guy. Maybe moves the runner over to put up your number three hitter. Who's usually your best batting average guy and then you've got your power hitters at four or five your boppers What article. I read it was i thought. Put it. Put it nicely number. Four best power hitter number five wannabe cleanup hitter like that. That's what that's what it's always been and then basically it doesn't matter six through nine you you just take you order guys by skill and maybe if you want alternate left right you can do that. That's kind of the traditional approach. How was up until maybe ten years ago do you want like. When did this lady said you just said you look around the league and you're seeing more of this traditional setup as well so has it changed that much i mean yes certain certain clubs do certain things to we see the power hitters sometimes going up into that number two spot. That's been like a glaring one that we've seen across the league where that number two hitter is definitely more of an unconventional Player aaron judge in the to spot is one of the more unconventional things that you see. I think within a lineup construction. If you're looking at the old school way to do it old school way to do it or you know. Correct way to do it. You know you choose you choose whichever you want to however you want to call it but i think it's interesting because when you're looking at some of the reasons for the the nerd test of it as well is you have leadoff hitter. High on base percentage guy doesn't need to be a guy that steals the bag right so this is something to me. The one for traditional and number one for nerd tests are actually not that far off. I think the fact that there's more stolen face you're not going to steal a base only basis or now are now you know going out of style because of the long ball because of the three four five guys. They don't want to steal those basis because they want the opportunity to knock them in and a stolen base is a risk to get a clean a base path. because they don't hit doubles and they gap anymore to two or a single to to score a run from second. That is just old fashioned. Apparently but those do those two guys are very very close in the same in the same way. Still the speed guy that you want in the traditional lineup still high high on base percentage guy. Back in the day you'd see more bunting they'd get on base no matter what the how they could get on but using utilizing their speed to to really maximize the efficiency of getting on base for sure and i think the biggest change has been in the two three four five spots it really the two three spots in the order because the sabermetrics approach or the nerd test approach is that you put your best all around hitter and they boiled it down to wrc plus as the metric that you decide who your best. All around hitter is to maximize his plate appearances then in the number three spot. You put a good hitter. Certainly you're not going to put a bad hitter brett gardner in the number three spot. But you actually don't wanna put a hitter who is better you want to put better hitters in the number four and five spots than you do in the number three spots and i'll explain why you their their stats that that tell the stats told us down. So we can talk about what they are and they'll and then less likely this so the number three hitter on average comes to the plate with fewer fewer times with runners in scoring position than the number four and the number five hitters. So if you're looking to score runs you want to have a better hitter up when there's a guy in scoring position thus you would put a better hitter up number four and five the number three. That's not to say you put a bad hitter at number three. It's just likely going to be your fourth or fifth best hitter in the number three spot and if that's what the yankees are doing and that's why they putting aaron hicks there in addition to the fact that he's a switch hitter that can break up the righties. At least i understand it a little bit more. I cannot wrap my head around. I dare anyone to find me an analytic. That says brett gardner should be batting third. Even if it's one night. I think it makes absolutely no sense that the way that metric is weighted and this is part of my problem with analytics in in in in certain verticals. The way that it's looked at it's not taking into consideration other factors the reason why the number four and five guys have the ability to knock in you know have more impact on the game or however you wanna say more leverage situations but have the ability to Knocking runs Because guys are on base and in scoring position is also because the number three guys traditionally your best header so is going to help that. 'cause is going to set that stage. Which in fact is the full reason of the traditional lineup. The reasoning is to set the stage to set the table. One to one gets on to. You can either go the other way to move the runner over or find a whole you have two runners on. Now you're in a number three spot where absolutely you want a guy that can control the bat. Well that has the ability to either if there's two guys on move them over for the four and five guys to be able to clean them up or they're they're they have a high opportunity to get on base because they are theory most complete header there or at least one of two of your most competitors so now you have the opportunity for them to have a higher impact yes there are not the same opportunities for the four or five guys to have runners in scoring position. Because there's only two people in front of you every single time you start a game so if the third runner if there's no one to three editing now the four spot and the five spot are starting with you know either nobody on on base or potentially one person on base so it doesn't it doesn't take into account the and and the reason why those runner there every single time for the four and five. It's one two three are good hitters. And they're in. They're ready to go ready for four or five knock them in which again lines up. Well it does. It doesn't ignore the it doesn't ignore the sat stat done. And you're like you're right that the first inning of of every baseball game is the only time in which you can order the lineup. Starting with the number one it might happen again later in the game. But you can't guarantee it. So that's why the metrics might skew in certain ways because the number nine hitter might lead off or the number five hitter might lead off whatever it is depending on the game situation. Another way to look at this though. Is that and this. I think we both agree with. Put your on base percentage guys ahead of your slugging guys right. That's just makes sense. of course. of course set the table right. And and then if you're doing that which the yankees are doing it mostly doing it in brett gardner sense. But they're doing it mostly where you have on on-base guys ahead of judge ahead of stan ahead of returns. Whoever then what you're trying to do is you're trying to mitigate the cost of outs this just an inverse way of looking at this and these statistics show that the importance of avoiding outs is actually ranked by the number one hitter. Then the number four hitter then the number two hitter than five then three then six seven eight nine and this is basically just saying if the guy up makes out. How costly is it to you scoring a run and it goes one four to five and then three meaning three is actually the fifth most important position in the lineup. When traditionally you would say it's the most important are the second most important position lineup. So again i think this is also when you're looking at these these stats. There's another thing to consider here. The one in one in four are the highest one one four the highest because there is probably a very high percentage of time. We're the number four hitter is now. You're leadoff hitter in the second inning. So of course there is going to follow the number one because that's most likely a high percentage situation right back. I now needs to be on base or have an impact by a solo shot or whatever that looks like so that does make sense to me but again you have. Let's take it back to the yankees lineup here. Aaron hicks as a number three hitter. High hombre base percentage guy. I think you and i both agree. That aaron hicks is an ideal leadoff guy because of the way that he takes the walk because of the fact that he gets on base. Not to say the jhelum. You is not a good leadoff guy because he is. He's another one of these guys who can do a lot of the things that you want out of the leadoff spot and he's been very good and that's in that in that position. I'm of the thinking that if you have a very good. High percentage on sorry on base percentage guy in aaron hicks. Now you can actually push that lineup back. One spot and have more of these guys in higher higher production situations by having. Dj la- make you in the to spot and aaron judge in the three spot. And now to me. You're not putting aaron hickson situation where he's trying to do something a little different than ses. That's not his number one skill set and that's worked account to get the pitch that he wants to take the walk if need be he's actually up there more of an opportunity to make an impact and i think that that affects the way that he approaches the at bats. Sometimes we're seeing more strikeouts. See i know. We've only had a few games but let's overreact. We're seeing more strikeouts. We're seeing things where he's pressing a bit and and now exploiting the reason why he's maybe not in that three spot i would love him in the ninth spot even more than the three spot to be honest well if the yankees are truly looking at analytics they're never gonna do that as as we just said. The nine spots this. The fifth spot is your second irving. Aaron hicks is your second a. I'm sorry the fee for the second power hitter and the nine spot is your second leadoff hitter. Got well then why. Two pitchers traditionally bat ninth in. The national is their trash. I don't know because because it's the national league. Is there still batting people. That don't deserve to have a bad their hands. I don't know and they're trying to bury them as much as possible.

Blue wire this offers valid. Through june thirtieth terms and conditions apply. But you asked the important question and that is is. Aaron hicks the best number three hitter for the yankees and how should the yank how should the yankees be applying this to the players that they have because remember. You have the players that you have and you have to best utilize those players. Based on all this data. There was an article on fan graphs called a lineup. Construction experiment that basically took nine players and organize them differently to figure out results and they use a modern approach. They used their traditional lineup. Modern approach meaning sabermetrics traditional. Meaning what we talked about speedy on bass guy back control guy batting second etc and then they intentionally created a bad lineup put their worst hitter i or put their second worst hit or second etc and what the stats ended up showing that the modern and traditional approach basically yielded the same results. The bad lineup performed worse by twenty six runs over. The course of one hundred and sixty two games might not sound like a lot but that could be four five wins. Yes it absolutely could be. I think one of the big things for me. When i'm looking at this conversation and actually at the end of the article there was a quote that i put in our notes and to me this does tell a big story of what to look for and in fact i think some teams have the ability to do this a lot more than other teams. And it's not because it's it's you know it's by choice. It's more because of their situations. So kevin cash is a great example. They were using him in the article. About you know pending microsoft for For For somebody for for choi to have that. The lefty lefty Batter in a particular situation late in the game. I think it was. They used the example of the world series game. Six when you're when you're looking at that they don't have everyday guy sprinkled into their lineup. They have guys that they've they plug in plug out and they're tough but what they're doing for example when i understand that what they're doing and i think this is this is an important thing to understand is what was the takeaway should be that the best way to optimize a lineup is to maximize the performance of the batters in it without worrying about whether the best hitter should it second or third and to me that is not doing that is not the case when you put aaron hicks and the three spot. I don't think you're giving him the most success to win at all that particular at bat because it is actually does not go down to his skill sets that are best suited for him. And when you're doing that you're starting the game in that way. Kevin cash is creating these situations not carrying. Who has two and three spot is because again different situation. Not everyday lineup guys. So he's got the ability to do that a little easier got more plug and play. Lefty righty to to mess with the match ups and look at the numbers against particular matchups. But when you're starting the day in this situation that to me is not ideal. I don't know what you're intending to do. Beyond a lefty in there and think about this. Righty lefty thing from the beginning. Rather than treating it more like a situational. Play later in the game to me if you have the ability to do that. That's where it comes into play. It's more matchup based rather than looking at you know the guy having four at bats in a game exactly but the yankees are not built with matchup players. they're built with mostly right handed hitters. Who you want up against no matter. Who's pitching giancarlo stanton. You on up no matter. Who's pitching gleyber torres. Clint frazier all. These guys are not what you do. Is you look within those those right handed. Batters that you're talking about and identify. Who has the ability to create a similar type of matchup. For a righty lefty. And you're looking at the split on. You're identifying who can handle a on a particular day even like i don't even care if this lineup changes a little bit. Depending on who the person is who the pitcher is in. What kind of what kind. What they throw might affect. How a right handed batter. Is you know creating success against a guy like that. So i don't think it needs to be necessarily clean cut but that said i would. I would put some money on the fact that you look at the two three headers as lemay you and judge that those are probably the guy's gonna wanna go with on on on most days most days unless you see a clear matchup situation and then you have gardner batting third wall right and and like based on all the stuff we just talked about okay even if the number three hitter is the fifth most important guy in the lineup. You can't tell me that. Brett gardner was the fifth. Best hitter in the yankees lineup. Last night he wasn't he was the eighth best hitter in the yankees lineup. The only one worse. Kyle higashi ohka who caught garrett cole which we will talk about not on this episode but we will definitely talk about that. Yeah i mean burkhart here. It's a lefty righty matchup. That's exactly what that was. That's that's what that was. jay bruce. Is there went jay. Bruce went up a jay bruce there. If you really just dying. For a lefty jay. Bruce probably better offensive player. The garnered the stage. If that's all you're dying to do he's looking at. What is he trying. Are we burying people in the three spot now but what is boon trying to do. What's his ultimate goal with putting hicks third or brett gardner. Third or insert lefthanded batter third. Is he trying to get better. Better verse pitcher matchups. Is you trying to think about tough reliever options late in the game. You could always look at what's been going a place where you can add someone who who handles the strike zone well so if a ball is in the strike zone who's making that's a step that we can look up. Actually this is. This is a bob stat. Who's barreling up the most balls when the when the ball is in the strike zone. I'm pretty sure that's one of the nerd numbers. Isn't it identifying that can give you a little bit more of a glimpse potentially as well because there's protection so you have some you have some big behind you. Theoretical theoretically you have protection by the with the four and five so if you're trying to create a better situation for more strikes being thrown putting a guy like hicks gardner in that in that spot if they are one that impact strikes more more so than a particular better. I could see the case for that because you're probably going to get more strikes right. They're not walking. They're not walking hicks in the three spot. They're trying not to at least they're not exactly and they're not gonna walk again though who can barrel up the strikes a best within that spot and by the way. No by the way. that lefty. but i don't even need to look at the stats. I can tell you. So that's the thing like your if that's if that's the case then you're you're losing guys. Were getting on base as well so you know i in the two to me is like the perfect situation. He's he's as clear of a derek jeeter as much as anybody. Yes which titus like in the top of the answer to. That's a more traditional approach than a modern approach. I don't dislike it either. But i i. What do you think is more likely to happen. The yankees move. Aaron hicks to the number to the number one spot and move. Dj to judge to three or move hicks to one. Keep judge at two and moved egypt. Three because i think the latter is more likely to happen. I don't see them moving. Judge out of the to spot. I think they fundamentally believe in this. Your best all around hitter by wrc plus needs to bat. Second i that's their belief. We're sure i think what happened. I i think that they could What's the difference with do w. e. r. c. plus between lemay who and judge. It's gotta be close. Well the last two years but expected expected stats probably say judges. Because because he's not gonna hit for the same amount of power but again twenty five home runs in the to spot three spot. It you know again dismissing the three spot. So i think that's look i want. Dj lemay you in the to stop. Because i think he's got more of an opportunity to create impact at the to spot. I think he does get on base but when you look at the percentages and and who. They're each. I feel like we're wasting aaron hicks when he's got the ability to get on base via the walk that's that's a takeaway from this article and something that you use the kevin cash example. He's so good at utilizing his player skills to the best of his ability and the best availabilities. And i don't feel that's what the yankees are doing with hicks for the million time. This is nothing against aaron hicks. it's just his skill. Set does not fit what they use him for in the if they just tweak how they use them. I think aaron hicks could actually be a really really valuable player and we can all get behind it. But when he's expected to hit the number three hitter you still you look at the number three hitter in the batting order. Twenty also about the leadoff guy to. Why is this a low batting average. But that's when you have to really dismiss what the batting average says and look at the on base percentage because that's the real story with aaron hicks the real story and again You know what a surprising that was that we pulled out a few weeks ago. And i think what frazier's on base percentage was was was actually higher than hicks. So you have a couple of on-base percentage guys that that have the ability to you know to get on base to set up the opportunity for some of the bigger hitters. You know maybe toy around with a myth. Clint frazier being up there in that three spot but again he's not a lefty hitter so i don't know if i don't know if we're looking at A- as being one of the criteria for for what looks rough that odor. He has played every day so that that's in as far as my prediction goes as far as my prediction goes on track for clint frazier leading the team. Games played roof nador door. You wanna you wanna chat about that. Because i think that's adding an interesting little wrinkle into what could be a another lineup. We're looking at a guy that's hit thirty home runs in the past still relatively young. They have some control. now he's had isn't it crazy. he's only twenty seven years old. I was i was i had to do. Like a triple take on. That was like the guy has to be in his thirties by now. It's another opportunity to get you know a guy in there that that has the ability to Put the ball over the fence. So that's that is something that i can see them doing it. And he's a lefty is lefty cannot play shortstop. He's a left handed bat but he can't play shortstop so i understand. They want to take a flyer on this because they could get real value here for no money. They're not paying a cent and he actually will lower their tax bill if they add them to the forty man roster. Because if they're paying a tyler wade. The league minimum. Guess what they're paying ruined door zero dollars so that lowers the tax bill. They add them to the roster. Doesn't change anything with the the backup. Shortstop situation exactly so i understand taking a flyer on them. But i don't see how this helps. What i think is still an issue on the team and that someone who can backup shortstop no it doesn't. It doesn't affect that. I think what they saw was an opportunity here. I don't think it makes all that much sense of what's going on unless we're we're hearing these these hints of her shallow and the elbow being a potential issue doesn't seem like it so far but who knows you know these things can can be a lingering thing foul is a tweet i saw from eric boland and no one else really posted about that. But eric bolling did that scouts. During spring training said jewish ellas elbow does not look healthy. Maybe that's some insurance there. i know. Miguel andujar is also still on the organization still hasn't still hasn't slowed down there and they gave up a couple of that doors now. Control right for what two to three years is. That is that accurate. He still owed twenty seven million dollars and the the rangers are paying all of it because they they waived him so they basically were like. Where are you going to wave them in. Knock it anything or we could take these couple of flyer prospects from the inks. Yeah and he strikes out a lot the all or nothing. Two thousand nineteen thirty home runs batting average. Two hundred and seventy eight strikeouts. Oh yeah it's it's lot. The prospects they gave up are actually. I thought were interesting. Because i i know both of them. Josh stores the guy that came over in the sunday gray trade via the mariners for shed long so he got headlong long from sensing that immediately turned him into stores from the from the mariners but he was he was a name that that had some Some decent success in the minors and then antonio. Kobe was a guy that that was. Actually ben badly was talking about him a lot when i had him on the show about a guy who look out for that he's been in the yankees organization. I think since he was like you know gary sanchez style like sixteen very early. He's been in for a while and had some had a good Initial year. I think in pulaski or low a. Somewhere and and then got injured And then had i think a a a tough year back. But he's a guy that they were high on a corner outfielder and still is nineteen years old so i was surprised that they gave up someone for in the rangers press release they. They said that they acquired outfielder just hours and outfielder slash catcher in tonio cabello. I've been seeing him. Come up as a catcher. After looked at this morning and i had to go back and remember Make sure i was. My memory was good. Because i he i know he was with the yankees as a corner. Outfielder right the yankees never listed him as a catcher. So i mean who who who does or cares about that but yeah i mean trey definitely surprised it was funny. The trade was announced. During when i was recording with andy martino so we pause for a couple of minutes so he could check his phone because his phone was blowing up because the yankees made a trade not that it's like a groundbreaking trade or anything but it was more. It was more opportunistic than anything with a the the the type of guy that they that they had. And you know how that goes right so some nerd number seven in cashman's department says harmful ma'am brain. I found some underlying metrics. That say roof. Netter is gonna hit thirty. Three home runs this year. You better pick them up in the regular season. Oh and then he's gonna strike out in the postseason when he's going up against a tough left e. Yeah you don't say but i thought this lineup. Construction was timely and interesting to actually find out that the analytic say the number. Three spot is less important than the four or five spot. I played the nerd angle from it. I don't agree with it. okay. I'm with you and just and also to be to be very clear like when we're discussing this and looking at this in a vacuum this is based on regular season numbers when you get to the playoffs and you're talking about i keep talking about this. The tough righties that are going to be opposing the yankees and the playoffs. Because that's who we face. Those are the guys that we faced a shutdown team. All of this lineup construction. And the fact that you're you're putting you're putting these these these high production guys home run or bust or you know high production guys in the four five spot. You need the table to be set. You need it to be set for the yankees. We've we've proven that them waiting for the homerun doesn't play it just doesn't it's not. It's not a way to win a championship. Not a way that they've they've they've gotten to this point. I think when you look back in two thousand seventeen you know. It wasn't all home runner bus. Like that team was rolling offensively. They had some opportunities where they were they. Were you know creating hits. They were they were moving the the baserunners like they were doing things that felt fun. And like real baseball it wasn't just homerun or bust which has been the makeup and you can get away with that in the regular season all of these regular numbers. It's a different animal when you are putting yourself in a position to win a championship and going into short series against the best pitchers in baseball. It's just different. Yeah absolutely and we'll see how it goes. Boone was already asked the question by joel sherman. When you're going to move in and out of the three spot that was after the weekend series which has had a rough series so he got the day off on tuesday. And that's why gardy was in but we'll see how it goes. I expect him to stick with the number three spot. And then maybe he'll he'll bounce down to the number five spot. He's not going to be moved tonight. I don't see that happening no again. That goes back to more of the traditional type. When you're turning her lineup over and getting your guys Potentially on base. That would really what it's doing is it gives me lemay. He'll at the to spot in back in a way. That'll do it for for this episode. Scott and i will be back at you definitely on friday morning. Maybe maybe tomorrow with something. If if something happens we'll find out it'll be a mystery. Talk to you guys been. Hey guys. thanks for listening to the bronx pinstripe.

Of course had all those players who had to be sidelined because it kobe related issues. Had a bunch of players return yesterday. Kyle schwab josh bell josh harrison. All back on their roster texas rangers pitcher jonathan hernandez underwent ligament reconstruction surgery. It's been a tough year for the rangers when it comes to injuries. Let's get to the good stuff. Ronald coney junior really showing the full breadth of all of his talents this year. This was ronald kuni. Junior last night hustling all the way to third base on a triple mid scoring on a pop up to just behind second base and a line drive. Hit the right few quarterbacks down second row second. Here's the literally triple z. Skies that one into the shift right at the shortstop and couldn't find him. Look at backtrack courteous. He's yeah he really put on a show. That of course was the voice of the great ship carry on the braves television networks. Speaking of guys breaking a tyler glass now was unbelievable against the rangers yesterday. Right up there at ninety eight sweating head. This and i'll tell you. That is not fair. Dwayne stats on the raised. Television network. glass now allowed only two hits and struck out fourteen over seventy two-thirds innings in that. Start against the rangers. We're gonna talk about him. We're gonna talk about ronald mukunu junior in others coming up when we speak with jessica mendoza might try. Had a moment. Trout gets a hold of one end of the quarter laugh. Daddy i pull marks in ten straight to jot for trout. Recognize that voice sets memphis gershon. My partner on sunday night. Baseball is doing some angels games. This year trout is going crazy. I've got a really interesting statistic about where he stands historically in the padres and the pirates played yesterday wil myers put on a show. wanna know. it's the myers him. Straight away centerfield. At the going back valor looking to go into the topiary. Pnc park wil myers at rbi single in the first now a two run homer the sixth is third of the season and padres take a three to one lead my own mind right. That's from ninety. Seven point three. The fan the padres win again. Stabby array below two. There is good as we thought they were gonna be. That's for sure. Now before we get to jess mendoza and essere lang's baseball is back. And so are your favorite teams and players catch. The best of the bigs all season on. Espn plus with more than one hundred and seventy live.

Got the reds at the giants in san francisco. And it's one of those where you get lucky where it matches up where the two aces lease the for. The reds kevin guzman for the giants. So i'm you know he get all nerdy with the pitching stuff Even though i love hitting diving bat oh and you get two guys have some good swing and miss stuff things. You can point out entertain. You know if it's working if it's not you know all the different things It's it's it's a fun match up. So i'm looking forward to that sir. I think kevin gosper might be the closest thing that baseball has right. Now to charlie morton five or six years ago. You know what i mean. We're i has unbelievable. He was a high draft pick. Everyone sees the potential there and it really is it. Feels like he's about ready to put it together. And i've always thought of ca- he's one of my favorite people in the game as being someone. He's such a nice person that i almost feel like. He wasn't able early in his career to like shut off the information. Like twenty people giving advice and he tried to utilize all voices and now that i think he's gotten older he sorted through that absolutely and you know just being able to trust like there's just such a comfort there. I spoke with them yesterday. And you know you're right. I it's something that really started to come together last year and i think too. There's a real difference when you within an organization when and nothing. I'm not knocking baltimore. But when it's just syncs up with the player so it's not that one organization is better than the other but in san francisco particularly actually his brief time with cincinnati when he was throwing out of the bullpen is what really switched for him. Because it's a mindset for a lot of these guys that they've been groomed and talked about. I mean you just look at him. And he's the prototype. Tall lean throws ninety eight. Likes got all the right pitches. But all of a sudden he was thrown bullpen and cincinnati and he his entire mindset of like my only face it a couple of batteries here so if i only have that time i a back through the balls heart is we can just what we see from bullpen arms. But also i'm gonna make sure that i'm deciding what pitches you throw in. Not just saying. Yes for whatever's being thrown down. Like if i've only got a chance here to prove myself instead of possibly entire game i want to make some changes and so that mindset shift when he got to san francisco. That's exactly what farhan zaidi told him. It was like hey. I don't want you to change a thing of what you do out of the bullpen. When you're throwing out of the bullpen nasa what we want. So if you throw as hard as you can whatever you want to pitch. That's what you're going to do. And it's completely shifted now the way that he's been able to perform in jesse the gymnastic gun off to new good start but i believe at some point the you know the standings will settle out as we would expect. The dodgers are going to run away with the west. The padres are really good. Team in the giants have become sellers. And i ain't gonna spend might be by the time we get to mid july the number one trade asset available in the markets all these contenders looking for a starting pitcher. What do you think absolutely yes. That's exactly i mean. I think it was the best qualifying offer. The whole saying worked for both sides last year kevin receiving the qualifying offer accepting coming back for seventeen million this year and being able you know to kind of put another year to show people especially non pandemic like the middle of it last year when he would have been a free agent to be able to come back this year in show the twenty twenty was not a fluke for him because he had so much success in everyone's now watching over one sixty two but then to get on a contending team. Because you know that that's exactly the giants are like. Hey let's have back. Obviously they want to hope that they'll contend you know here the next few years in that rebuilding mode and to be able to get a couple of really cool other its prospects or key guys back from a team is exactly what the giants need. Because they're close. They're not they're not there yet. But they're right there in the middle where they're not the worst team in the division and they're starting to really build on these. These trading blocks building blocks the differently. They're able to do so. Yeah guzman being to go away go away. It's mapfre trade away in july and get some good. It's exactly what the giants want. And if he has a big year he is gonna kill it in free agency. He's going to be one of the most coveted arms and free agency in the fall as well. So fingers crossed for kevin costner. A great guy yesterday. Of course the red sox and twins were postponed in the aftermath of the police shooting in the minnesota area. And you know we saw this last year. And i thought back as i was preparing to talk to you today where i remember how you know years ago decades ago when i first started covering baseball. The culture of the sport was that When a player was going to have a baby he was not going to leave the team like for years. That's the way it was. Oh you're having a child tough. You know what the baseball schedules more important anything else. And then over time. I think people realize well. That's really stupid. And so yesterday. When aaron hicks went to the anki and said After what happened in minnesota. I just. I don't wanna play in aaron. Boone told reporters you know what he's having a tough day to day. I think that's exactly the right thing within baseball. Just as it is with other companies. Listen to your employees. Understand what they're experiencing understand what they're going through and react with compassion. What do you think. Yes i mean. That's the human part of the sport that needs to be there. I mean yes. If you're a brand new father immune hello. i'm super it's like of course. Baseball is not more important. Like this is your life. And for aaron hicks and credit aaron boone so much as well because it came from him you know if this was even a few years ago could have come from the player because the manager might not have stood by him or maybe support him and like all right but you need to address this in and go until everyone because his name was already written in light at which i felt like was even more impactful for just people understanding how this can hit somebody at anyone who knows. Aaron hicks understands. This is not a player that ever would want to sit out that he wants to be in that lineup. If you're talking about baseball side but the personal side you know. I sat there. And you've been hearing that john. Carlson was mulling it over itself and you know the fact that he was like look my my whole entire mind. Can't be in this. Because i'm hurting. I'm hurting for what i feel. That is happening right now in our country and back in minnesota and that honesty one is so huge but then also the support system of his teammates of his manager and the fact that this also can be something that other people can share with him that it's public because he was in the lineup so it's the yankees and everyone was following that story and it lets people understand that. This isn't just one part of our country but it affects our athletes. It affects every single one of us a hundred percent and i. I'm glad heads at the sports. Culture is evolving In handling situations like that. Because i can imagine if you've got a player say when i first started covering baseball. Say you know what this tragedy happened. And i don't i don't feel like human life mindset to play or there would have been a lot of repercussions on that individual player now instead. There's a better sense of understanding so on sunday night. The deciding run in that game we had between the phillies and braves was scored on a play in which alec boehm of the phillies in my opinion. Never touched on plate. And i don't even think it's an opinion jess i think any replay look at shows. That alec boehm to this moment has not touched home plate which is late yesterday. That was the players reviewed in chelsea and the decision was that there was no evidence that he didn't touch home plate which i found to be nonsensical and so yesterday i was really hoping that major league baseball would out with a statement and say you know what that decision last night. That was wrong and we got that wrong. And we're going to do better going forward. We've seen other sports do this. I think baseball would really benefit from doing this. To bolster the credibility of the whole system in the is the players as opposed to. It feels like almost telling the players. you know. Know what what what we're telling you. This is what we saw. You know what what you guys are saying. You didn't see no that actually happened. It's absurd will and then the reverse if there was something magical that they saw like an extension of foot that wasn't there or something then like to be able to come out and say they're standing by. Hey there's no evidence or that a we did see him then come forward with that but have some sort of was the biggest story coming into monday We had our first literally practice with a bunch of seven. An eight year olds in literally. Kids were like make like doing their best out. Bom sh so you just kind of do they were all like sliding on the grass at imitating. Don't actually have to touch the ba- cracking me up and also super happy. My he has everyone's watching baseball what they saw the night before. But then it was also embarrassing. Because i'm like you know and that's that would have happened before replay right where it's like. Oh like we could see because we as people watching from home had the benefit of refi right that the umpires did not have. And so it's like saying you know he was really actually you know out but you know they call them. Stay for whatever reason it's like no. They spent five minutes seeing exactly what we saw. And like you would tell an eight year old if you're wrong be accountable and that will go. This is like me like apparent parent mode where it's like just just own up. Things will be so much smoother down the road. If you can just admit fault just say you know what are bad. You know we. This is what we thought. We were under atomic. Whatever the reason was and you know what you make mistakes like i get that and this one was a hard one is swallowed owning up to it is going to allow everybody to move forward so much easier instead of it just kind of lingering especially buster. My biggest fear is these two teams are going to be battling it all season long. And it's not gonna go gets all gonna come back to that game. Imagine doubt like obviously a tie by the end of the year but definitely. I feel like it's going to come down even as we're heading into september where those two teams are still battling it out for the division and every game will matter all back to that slide. That wasn't a safe call last night. I was watching the marlins in the braves. And there was a replay challenged by the braves on a slide into second base in one against the marlins. And i don't know exactly what folks the marlins dugout were thinking. But i strongly suspect some of them were were like. Oh i know how this is going to go major league. Baseball is going to rule in favor of the braves because they know that they screwed up last night and the call went against the replay. One against the marlins and don mattingly lost his mind like he was like. Are you kidding me. 'cause it was again another play where you're not sure exactly what was being seen back in the replay center. I wish they would have someone with a microphone. Back and chelsea to let people know exactly what's going on And to own whatever decisions they make all right ed usual. I wound up taking too much time. No it's it's you. And i we just we get chatting or like getting coffee in the morning Go time i'm on my third cup already. I'm going to ask you for forty five seconds on these players who were seeing progress in this. Your ronald a kunia. Junior has been putting on a show in recent days Okay we can talk about the power all of the things that are sexy but to me getting down the first baseline to help create that rally that we saw on sunday i mean flying. He hit the ball pretty hardy. Shortstop wasn't some week ground ball. He beat out running out. I mean he was just getting after it. And i love when showing all the skills you know and right now it's like you can just see that he growing up crazy with these years is like he's still getting better because he still growing up in. He's uneven at his prime years yet. If you really think about the late twenties and how much you can learn from the game suggests putting on a show to meet the little things soon as you hit a ground ball that you think's gonna be out and you're getting down the line to create a rally for your team us the stuff. I love in last night scoring on a pop up behind second base tagging from third base. Where just after he has a triple And getting an rbi from osceola albee's they said the braves broadcasts as he owes a mistake for that type of play tyler glass now who you when he was really young with the pirates. Incredibly fun guy. And it's fun to watch and put it all together. It really is such a great guy. Yeah you and. I had spent some time with him. You so so sweet so nervous. All the things. It's still insecure to remember talking him and he still have doubt. You know you could tell like you. I hope i do well tomorrow night on sunday night. Eastbound just that like child that was still in that wanted to be great to see him. Put it all together. Another guy you know similar to guzman you has all the tools and was just lacking that ability to kind of get his body and sink to really because he is that like that bold to power all the things that you can see the The potential there to see him do it in tampa bay In the performance he had last night the swing and miss everything working for him and then that smile it was. It was pretty cool. Wil myers off to a great start with the padres. After having a great two thousand twenty this is someone that the padres actually were dangling around and trade talks because they wanted to dump his contract. I mean this is an player that stepped up in the. You know the injury of touchy junior having another tool and someone else within that lineup to show how deep this team could be when everybody is doing well And when he when he first came up and just all the expectation and you know the one of those like slumps after he had had so much success a wil myers someone that can discontinued data to padres team. The so already stacked That might truck. I don't know if you've heard much about him another homerun last night. He now has three hundred and six at the outset of his age. Twenty nine season. I was just thinking about him this morning. And how consistent he is and i was thinking about the most consistent player in baseball history and that would have been henry aaron who his age twenty nine season had three hundred and forty two home runs. That's all the way through the season trout's at the beginning of the age. Twenty nine th season three hundred and six. If you told me trout would finish his career. Somewhere in the seven. Fifteen range And erin finishes grew seven fifty five. That would not surprise me. What about you. Oh yeah. I mean i just see him. Even as he ages which she's nowhere near that now but even at the back end of his career disputing the guy was just able to put the ball over the fence with you know maybe not running the basis as fast maybe not roaming centerfield. Maybe he's more of a da whatever. It looks like last few years of his career. He still going to be able to barrel balls. I mean that is something that he when you're looking at just how to hit the balls like So well short like to the ball all the things you know. That's my trout and you see that in the back of his career because it isn't this big long hughes like powerful swing. It's simple and his direct line from just bath to ball it such a like easy move for him that it just you can see this. Continue well until. I see him like forty years old and she's like centerfield homerun left field home. Run by its chip shots and golf and last one. The cubs offense. What the heck happened with this group of players The first ten games in the season. They have forty nine. Hits fewest through the first ten games of a season in franchise history a one sixty four batting average. I remember jess last year. When they struggled. You know david ross. The their new manager said look sixty game season. No one's really paying attention to the results because it's a small sample size. This is not a small sample size. Now this been going on for a while now it has and especially ever since they won just because they are goods like but at the same time it. It's amazing. I don't know it's just mental if it's pressing if now this year coming in but like you said it's been the last few years where they're just not living up to the potential of what we saw when they were all you know. Winning games left and right and then ultimately winning the entire thing. But i think you know this year and you and i talked about. Everyone's talking about is you know. They're talking about selling the steam. You know getting rid of loud these big stars because they have to rebuild. And if they're not going to be in contention. And i think that just adds further pressure because this team wants to stay together and they wanna be the guy to say no. I want to stay in the cubs uniforms. Don't trade me away. And i just i feel that sense from them that it's like they know that they're better than this. But then you try to be the guy to show that you're better and it. That's not how they when they were working. It was literally different hero or every night. And now you just feel the kris bryant said anthony rizzo's at that throw yesterday all the way to the stance and they laughed about it. But it's just. It was almost like how this team like. What has happened to this team. A hundred percent right jess. I'll be watching tonight have fun. I'll be texting you all right. Thanks to the coffee. This is the numbers game with sarah. Lang's of course a reporter and a producer for mlb dot com. Sarah i was just talking with jess mendoza about Mike trout and the current trajectories on and the similarities to henry air in through henry errands. Age twenty nine season a an incredible career of consistency at three hundred and forty two homers. Where at the outset of mike trout's twenty nine season. And he's got three hundred six homers if you told me at the end of his career that he would be in that seven hundred fifteen homerun range. It wouldn't shock me. what about you. absolutely i mean. Consistency is the word you know. He had seen no injury in that twenty seventeen season. That's when he played one hundred and fourteen games but lower than that. He's pretty much always been in. Not hundred thirty plus game range and we saw. I mean all of those. Mvp finishes right. He finished fifth last year. That was his worst ever in a full season. I mean i think that tells you all you need to know about. You know you're not getting those mvp votes if you're injured near not getting those mvp votes if you're playing in four games in a season and he just doesn't seem to be slowing down. I mean he's one of three guys who's ninetieth percentile or better in hard hit rate and sprint speed right now. The other guys are guys like ronald kuni junior who are significantly younger. So i think that just tells you all you need to know about the fact that he is still in his peak to everyone who was saying. Hey maybe we're gonna have a new best player in baseball by the end of one. I do not think it will be by the end of twenty twenty one and i think like aaron. He's such a phenomenal athlete. That he someone who's gonna age well as a hitter. Definitely it really seems. So i mean you know. That's why i mentioned spence feet and specifically to the point that he's such a great athlete and you don't look at him unnecessarily thinks that right off the bat but it's that it's almost that football player kind of build where he has that speed despite being not skinny like a kuna necessarily and i i don't i don't see him slowing down anytime soon. Which is so exciting to think about. Let's play the numbers game number. Three number three is twenty so speaking of a kuna who i just mentioned so he has twenty hard. Hit batted balls so far this season. That's tied for third in the majors. And i just feel like especially the last two days have really been the ronald kunia show across major league baseball. We saw what he did with that infield single in your game on sunday night baseball and then followed it up with a home run on sunday and then last night he hit a triple scored on pop up sacked fly. I mean it was a pop up but it's a sack fly in the play by play because he scored on it. Which is just so hilarious and i mentioned that about ninetieth percentile or better and hard hit rate and sprint speed this year. So it's byron buxton. Mike trout and ronald acuna junior. And i think that's an awesome less. It's great to see all three of those guys there. And i think they're there for slightly different reasons despite being in percentile ranges. But that's 'cow'rin speed. That's what you want to see and nuts so electric on the base pass and i have another list. They've also on which is players who are ninety percent or better in hard hit rate and eighty fifth percentile or better in strikeout rate. And that one's one soto a kunia and yuli gurriel and that's something else that we like to see in the game. These days guys not necessarily striking out so much and still hitting for power. So i think everyone was expecting a great year out of him but this is awesome that it's coming to pass that we're seeing happened just right before our number two number two is twenty seven so tyler now last night induced twenty seven swings and misses which was the most by a raise pitcher in any game in the pitch tracking error. Which was since two thousand eight. It includes their playoff runs. All of that time he broke. There were a couple twenty six's by blake snell's twenty seven now the most by arrays pitcher. He had fourteen strikeouts last night. Which was one shy of the franchise record which is held by chris. Archer and james shields at fifteen but glass now. The only other fourteen strikeout game was david. Price and twenty eleven. So this is what the rays were hoping for and expecting when they traded blake snell and fully made glass now there as though i would argue. He was probably the race last year too but he is completely into that Number one number one hundred nineteen so shohei ohtani last night who the hundred nineteen mile. an hour exit velocity. What does this one of those numbers i mean. We're used to high exit velocities. We're used to these things. But that's a number that we really don't see very much so the only players with at least one batted ball of a one thousand nine hundred plus mile an hour eggs if lost eight tracked by statcast that since twenty. Fifteen giancarlo stanton. Aaron judge gary sanchez. And now shohei otani and something else that i loved about that game and it just shows you that high exit loss definitely helps the higher exit lawsuit in the more likely. It is going to be an extra base hit. That's for sure. The two doubles last night. The other double eighty three point eight miles an hour off the bat not even a hard hit ball so it just shows you can get it done in any way but one nineteen is serious exit loss territory so i wanna follow up on glasnost as you were talking. I thought of this kind of a fun question. And i want to make absolutely clear that i'm not saying that. Tyrod tyler glass now is better than garrett cole but i do as i was watching that last night in his you were just talking now is thinking what tyler glasnost is a closest thing that baseball has jacob degrom in in terms of that angular already that dominates with those long labours that he has. What do you think definitely. And i think you see it with the velocity and again no disrespect to coal whatsoever but glass out much more frequently gets into that ninety nine hundred mile an hour range than coal does which is much more similar to what jacob degrom has done and if you think about the trajectory that jacob degrom has gone on if the rays can teach class now to add velocity like that and somehow that seems a little more realistic than coal necessarily doing that at this point in his career i mean he could be. You know we keep talking about how jacob degrom going to be throwing one hundred and three one day. I think the same thing. When i look at tyler glass. Now because we've seen that velocity can be learned and can be added later in career lately and he seems like another really good candidate for it. No doubt about it. All right sarah. Thanks for doing this things much. For having me about star bleacher tweets already. Buster bleacher tweets for tuesday first up. We have melvin rivera. On at rivera on melvin. He writes in loved the podcast. I'm a yankees fan. Does clint frazier. Have a future with the yankees. I don't think the front office has confidence in him. He's being removed for defense and he got benched after a slow start. I do think they believe in him. let's face it. They hung onto him through other struggles. you know. They identified him when they made it. Big trade for with andrew miller with the cleveland indians in two thousand sixteen and last couple years he's shown real growth and i know he's not the great start but yeah i think they'll work it out. The one thing that does happen when team struggle offensively and the yankees have not his early this season as they have in the past when teams go through that guess who gets benched. It's the young guys like they're not getting a bench giancarlo stanton when they're paying thirty million dollars a year. It's the guys who are gonna get changed. Great point wsb adamy at a underscore yanni. He writes an is extending the first base bag into foul territory the easiest way to alleviate frustration and confusion as well as prevent possible injury in major league baseball. I would say yes. What do you say buster atom. I totally agree with you. I mean we've all seen those little league games where they have those double bags. I think it's safer next up. We have brandon race ller in brandon and he sent in a handy phonetic spelling of his name. So i appreciate that at win for gwynn. He writes in buster. Why do so many players bounce around the same division throughout their careers. I assume it's familiarity with the other players ballparks but seems like a strange thing to be concerned about at the elite level. No i look. I think what happens is sometimes in. It's a great point Sometimes i think it's gonna winston is but in some cases. I think that there are guys who are watched on other teams in their value. In other words Someone will say are get a chance to see a player for ten fifteen games during the course of the year and the go you know. What if we get an opportunity. Let's go after. That guy. You think of kurt suzuki in the longtime catcher who bounced from the braves to the nationals. And i think he went back and He he's an example member. Kelly johnson the mueller with the atlanta. Braves he bounce back and forth between all the teams the national east. You're you're right. I think that happens. Because familiarity is a factor last one for today. We have a question from dmv don irvine at donner vine. He writes in our the early season problems for the nationals. Shutout three times something to be concerned about or will they turn it around in wind up with a better record than the orioles but Yeah an don. I'm curious to see if you if your question about the orioles. Assyria thank you. That's backward series taylor. I don't know he's written kind of ernest question about the orioles before so i can't imagine though that he he's this is completely serious yet. There's no chance that back. You know what. I don i will buy you a dinner certificate if the orioles win more games in the nationals. This year you don't have to. I'll just tell you that if the orioles win more games in the nationals. I'm gonna find your address. I'm going to. I'm going to dinner certificate. Because there's no way taylor in fact i know you would back me up on this. You're an orioles fan. Would you pitching fifty percent. You and i could buy together. Yeah let's do it. We'll We'll door dash him some five guys or somethin' there. We go absolutely yes. So i think that's the case all right. Lock it up don. Thanks for writing in everyone. Hashtag bleacher tweets on twitter. And please follow rate and reviews podcasts.

The Sarrah Rose Story- Episode 6: FIT SEX

"In the Sarah Rose story my name is Glenn Klein. Sarah what your story. Haegglund good to be here with you today. So the story. Is it sex here? We go talking about. How FITNESS IMPACTS US sexually? I mean clearly sexist. A physical activity in you. Want to be in good enough shape to get Optimal results out of it. So yeah. How's your day been dot fit not fit as I said when we first got on the call what he did and I said I want shoveling cold pasta down my throat right now I was out for being fit was pretty sexy. I'll tell you man I was starving and I was like I gotta eat something in looked around and that was the easiest solution so you know it is what it is. I do my best and I think that's that's important Mentality to have right. It's like you can't have perfection all the time and just doing you're doing your best and sometimes it's your best is going to be cold pasta. That'd be great t shirt right. There cold noodles nuts out six unhealthy. Carbs of. I'll tell you what sometimes I get home from. Jujitsu and I am starving and I'm like literally all I can do is just like shove food down my throat and pasta does it fills me up. Yeah it's it's their pardon alive life but in you know the rest of the time I do. I do eat healthy most the time. How fit does one have to be to be sexually fit? I mean they're definitely like different levels of it also say that. I am very impressed when I'm with those Jiu Jitsu competitor guys like their stamina is ridiculous and I'm like it's very impressive In so it pays off. You know like really having that athletic type stamina it pays off in the bedroom. You have to have that kind of stamina in order to still be good in bed. No but I do notice a difference more important for having a healthy sexual experience for being a sexy master. Sex stallion the mental aspects or the physical aspect Definitely both it's gotTa be both you know it's like anything. You can't really separate. There's IT's holistic. And that's how I work with. Guys is in a holistic way like incorporate corporation their mind and their body into it all so it's both what would be. Let's say that somebody is either never had a regular fitness program or not knowledgeable about it. What would be the best advice you would give to? Somebody just starting out out of fitness regimen whether their goal is to be a master of saks or not. I while I mean as far as there's a couple different things to look into talking about that so for building stamina you WanNa do like more strength training. I'm Cardio's going to make your heart nice and strong you know and So I think it's really more about having a well rounded fitness program than Only looking at one particular aspect of it. You've been dealing in a lot on the your blogs that by the way if you're not signed up for the newsletter just go to tantric activation dot com and you can get that and they come out on the regular great information you've been dealing with a lot recently with the psyche of man visa either penis and one of the most amazing things that I learned and I know this from personal experience is at guys of course are concerned about the size of their penis. And it's the visual thing because most guys are a relatively the same size that's why it's an average but it doesn't look that way all the time and when a guy loses thirty pounds there. Dick appears an inch bigger. It's not but because there's you know there's the fat that surrounds The Penis and the Pubic Bone area that alone psychologically is beneficial just looking more. Vero or more masculine. If you will makes the cock look bigger but also just makes you know. The guy looked better Being looking healthy looks better and it's really about being healthy. Gabbing FIT can be sexy but being fit is also healthy. You dare definitely people to take you to the extreme in any the inaba hell need either but you know just being a fit healthy person attractive like you're if you're working out and you have muscles in your skin tone you know your skin is clear is bright like it's make somebody more attractive. The pubic bone area is a tremendous tool because women's clitorises are significantly in different positions. And if you have a tight body for guy he can get to that clip it. That's above the entrance of the vulva with his pubic bone. It's a major aspect of Ah fucking frankly it is important. We definitely need that I actually WANNA a new program that I've been wanting to create and I need to create the space in my life to create this program but is actually like a fitness program for fucking and so like giving guys the different thrusting techniques New Different things like that. I I actually incorporate some of the stuff into man on fire but I want to do like a video they guy purchase similar low to sex Dahlia training or push geology where they can just go on site and like by just specific videos around the fitness for fucking excited. It'll hopefully happened here and I think we have the name fit fucking China. Get ads for that. One going should not be a problem. One of the problems are dangers of course of a fucking while mopping fit as you can get hurt. Yeah Llosa weekend indefinitely a hurt. Actually some guy message me the other day and said that he broke Capillary on the top of his penis from fucking so much as like. Wow so what he said was that he had been having sex with women about three and a half hours. A day I don't know how long that had been going on. But I mean because I've definitely had sex like that three and a half hours a day like multiple days in a row with the same guy and he didn't bust capillary. So I haven't seen that but Barely happens at least he didn't break his Dick Card. Yeah I mean that's rough. I have not broken a dig. That is a good thing is you? Don't WanNa Break Your Dick. I can't even imagine there's just horrifying. My brother-in-law broke his well. He didn't do it. His wife did my sister-in-law and he was out of commission for one and a half years. Oh my God they had put him in a splint and my former wife is so competitive that from that point on she was trying to break my Dick and I would grab her because on top the woman obviously has more control and I would grab her and bring it is. I would literally say this. You are not going to break my dick sex with someone is trying to do that to you. Well you guys are all pretty much trying to do to us one way or another. You know that right I am not. I am addict. Love no no you. You are at-bats why we're listening because you are the exception but all women on a certain level watch emasculate their men on a certain level. I know it's mostly subconscious. But it's like no I just grew aren't trying to ask you late men. They're trying to they want men to show that there can't be emasculated by them different. Well there is a difference but it's a fine line and the difference is that it's women are actually. I think this is a biological imperative. Trying to test their men or them man to see if they're worthy of their womb. Well Yeah there's definitely that right because the winner gets the spoils right like who is the winner and the WHO is the one that is worthy of having my my egg who is a one as worthy of having my offspring You know who is the one that is going to give my offspring the best chance of survival and it's really what it is it's the lifecycle aspect of it so. I he no but when you say like women are trying to emasculate men. It's more of like they're wanting them to show to prove that they are the top dog. Like you're the one that is going to give my offspring the best chance of survival. I I think that that is a huge aspect of it. However women have been abandoned by men the responsibility that men had within society from day. One and that abrogation has led to a generic fear amongst women. That guys are going to abandon them. Because that's what we have done throughout history now that these particular gentlemen that are listening right now. Maybe they have. Maybe they have it. But I'm talking about. We're talking about tens of thousands of years of modern history that we know this. This is what happened. Women considered livestock property. So what what happens when we have a corporate fear all men have fear of lack of potency or lack of size again on a continuum and then when you have this fear of abandonment. We all try to validate what we're afraid of subconsciously. Psychologically so as soon as the woman has a sky that she's in the process they have a term of course in the pickup or the dating community called Shit testing. Women will should test other men for exactly the reason you said Sir and so as soon as you have that on the one side of the coin just like Argh I'm into this guy. He's confident I feel the connection. There's two sides to every coin on the other side is. How can I get this guy to leave me to validate my fear that he is going to leave me? The ultimate departure the ultimate abandonment is death and so obviously sub women have literally lopped off their guys dicks. Laredo bobbitt comes to mind we we. We just had a woman here in Florida. Bite off her boyfriend's Dick while he was sleeping. Bite it off. So that's on. The one end of the continuum on the linear graph on the other end is hardly ever an issue certainly consciously for almost all women. There's still this desire to prove our fear. There's a very human characteristically of individual fears and we have court we we all pretty much feared death for example and so a lot of people to validate their fear their maximum fair but they kill cells and other people are jumping out of airplanes and riding motorcycles without helmets. And you know competing in Jujitsu Shit like that. I've asked one side of the coin. The other side of the coin is obviously. It's it's thrilling to drop out of a plane. People love riding motorcycles. People love competing and Jujitsu. There's two sides to every coin. The key I think this kind of gets us back to our topic of sex is to find that balance because people literally I mean the. The fitness industry is there to get people healthy. We know that it's optimal to be fit to have a sexually healthy life and yet people can literally exercise themselves to death so you gotta find that Middle Ground that balance you don't go there and exercise yourself to death. That's not the goal here. The goal is to be fit and healthy. But I mean to your point with all that and that's why we do shadow work like the man on fire program is full of shadow. Worked all up bringing up these fears right like I mean you say a lot of stuff that you're saying I think about in my own life. It's like okay. We'll maybe a one point I had fears around and as a person matures grows to self development. Work you're able to move through that and not have those same issues anymore so but you're right like epigenetics these things are built into our DNA from from what's happened in the past. You know what women have experienced. In the past current women have the fear of those built into them in some women. The trine is stronger. It gets turned on in certain situations and not other people. So you never know like who's really going to react in a certain way a certain type of environment but the collective experience is a very real thing. It's not just some new age. Woo thing it's actually in our bodies and our brains part of our bodies. Yeah for sure how? How did you just put that you said as you do the internal no? How did you say that exactly shot work? The shadow work with you even when the deeper doing doing shadow were just like bringing up stuff from the unconscious. Subconscious in during the personal development worked. Now obviously that speaks to fitness as well being mentally fit when guys are out there women as well. The percentage of people that are doing this work that you and I are Gaijin professionally and we live this. But the percentage of people out there in society is relatively small compared to the overall population. How does one begin to recognized? Okay you're working on your own emotional mental fitness who shadow work etc. How do you start recognizing that right away and others? If they're down that path so that basically men and women don't waste a lot of time. Well Yeah and not the more you develop in yourself more the easier you'll be able to sense it in other people more like when. I'm go on a date which is rare honestly because I'm rather be doing Jujitsu weighed but like when I do when I'm you know I'm meet up in typically even know before I show up face to face with a guy like where's he coming from. Is He matured? Has He done personal development like is he secure in himself and if not then those things definitely show up in you know communication like is their depth to what he has to say is able to look me in the eye You know is he authentic. Sincere Is He. You know just trying to get me back to his place. Yes there's there's definitely ways to notice but it really for me it's like I I look at the different these different things in the also the sensation that I have a feeling that I have about this guy. These are things you can learn about how to pick up. And then there's just the the gut reaction can learn how to tap into that. It was personal development that that was the phrase. Besides the shadow work there is such a small percentage of people that are developing themselves. Personally most people are just getting up going to work chauvinism cold pasta and their pie hole and go back and hoping and hoping they can get laid once in a while Marais. Yeah that's like in a lot of people I mean. There's there's been no huge self help type Wave trend that took place. And you know there was some good stuff that definitely came from self help movement but personal development is like a different flavor than self help. Self help just the the words. It's like you need help and does not that. We don't need help like you know clearly. It's always beneficial to have can be beneficial. Have help but like it's almost like putting yourself in. A place of lack to begin with personal development is like I am developing these attributes in myself that I desire to have I desired this for myself and I am developing myself to have these desires. I am creating myself again as creating the story for a life and so when it comes to sexual fitness are you desiring to have amazing hot sax desiring to have stamina to satisfy your partner are you desiring to you know have a body that looks attractive that you're happy about when you look in the mirror either. These types of things are these your desires than develop yourself in that way. And that's like the way that I see the work that I do in the man on fire program. It's like he's guys come in and they get six months of developing themselves to become the sexual mousters that they really desire to be. It seemed like you did something that was done. Shuttle your what was done with my spiel. All your Jewish word there. Shall We dip into the ask? Professor Sara mailbag right away. Got a very appropriate question from Brian of Birmingham Alabama. He says Sarah I desire a six pack. I workout ten to twelve hours a week and have been doing so for two years. Still cannot see my six pack. What should I do I mean? What kind of workout are you doing tonight? Have a six pack in. What are you eating Those would be my first. She questions So I mean that's pretty. That's a lot of working out. If I was working out that much in not showing results I would definitely be doing a different workout. What about what about the importance of the Food I? I've heard it said that eighty percent of getting to your goals in Brian's cases goals to literally physically see a six pack is eating which yeah absolutely talking ten to twelve hours a week like I. I think I could eat anything in. Be working out that much in still. See A six pack. Genetics is a huge thing of you noticed this. Some people don't work out at all and have US expect other people apparently like Brian. We're ten hours a week and Nazi is expanding is he like. I went for a walk around blog at like a turtle speed in this. What he's talking about you know working out. Go go find a fitness trainer Brian. I think it's a great idea. I also think there are certain modalities of eating. I'm you know people say diets. Don't work Ron Diet of one form or another. And there's there are diets that will be this. What do you think about the Kito Diet or the Mediterranean diet or the intermittent fasting craze? That is all the rage right now. Yeah I don't really pay attention to any of them honestly like for me. It's more just do my best eat healthy and make sure that wouldn't putting into my body at least most of the time when it's not cold tosseh is something that is nutritious and beneficial So for me. That's the best mentality is just like being conscious of what you're putting your mouth the specially the Kach just had a quiet mind a new client find out that one of our guests on sex abuse was uncircumcised and she seemed in the text to me was so excited about it which was fairly unusual response. Unfortunately but then I talked to her earlier today she gets so turned on by an uncircumcised penis. Which of course is fairly unusual in America. It's the norm everywhere else. What what what say you professor what? What is what is your take uncircumcised for circumcised in your mouth since you brought it up. Well so I mean I don't necessarily have a preference as far as you know which one I like better. I always happy to see when a guy has not been circumcised. Because he's you know he has everything intact to end. It's just a much more humane way of being. You know I feel like. It's very inhumane for People to circumcise babies. So that is you know it's genital mutilation and so. I'm happy to see when a guy who hasn't had to go through that experience But one doesn't turn me on more than the other. I just liked Cox. Why do you laugh when you say that guys are happy? Good reason that's why our next letter to the professor says professors other catching ad professor. Sara fill is from Henderson. Las Vegas. He says my wife is overweight. She knows it. She hates it but she hates when I bring it up even more. What should my approach be with her? Well it's definitely not something to bring up with her. I don't think it's going to do any good at all to let her know that you've noticed this It's just. It's such a sensitive subject. I'm I think wait is somehow even more sensitive than saks. They're both very sensitive subjects It's difficult it's really difficult. So you know if she's not happy like maybe you just create ways for the two of you to be more active together you know like join a yoga studio with her Into going to help with getting into shape but yoga really helps with the mind body connection and so the more conscious a person is of their body. The more likely they're going to be wanting to take care of their body by eating healthy foods and doing things to keep their body fit and active. So that's really Benefit that I've seen in Yoga that I haven't seen in other Other modalities of fitness so And then also it will help with your flexibility which is really important for good sex. You definitely want to be very flexible. Have Good Hip Movement. Things like that and it can Just help create all sorts of feelings of wellbeing in your body and it's a good way for you to to connect with each other and then after the class give her a nice massage and connect with that oxytocin bond and enjoy your time together fills already crosses bridge with saying something to his wife about it but generally speaking there is zero upside for guy to tell a woman she's overweight. She knows it. And it's going to cause nothing but contention in the relationship wouldn't bring it up again. There's other ways around it. I was dating a beautiful woman. She looked like Halle Berry. Actually but she was. She was big. She's a big big black beautiful woman and I was very attracted to her intellectually. And you know she. She was and bad but it was. It was there was a lot. It was a lot to deal with it but knowing what. I just said I was determined not to say one word about it and so we and but it was too much on the regular so we saw each other maybe four or five times a month and I was very fit at the time and I was working on the regular and then one day. She told me that she and her son had been in their communities. Jim So at that point she opened the door and I said to our cat. Would you ever be interested in going on work date and she said I would love that and over the next six weeks? We met I three times a week and she lost. It's unbelievable the amount of weight. She law she she. She lost thirty pounds in six weeks and she was getting fit and then she got pissed at me. I mean she she popped me so hard. I was so glad that I had her in the gym. Trae way training and I never had anybody get violent with me ever and she had shown no signs of this and then she popped me. This is a long so I won't go into it and I was really concerned about domestic violence so I could. I just yelled at her to get out of the house which she did and we we. We addressed it later. We I ended that immediately but I was. I mean. Maybe you don't want to go to the gym with your girlfriends guys is what I'm trying to. Of course of course. I know you're kidding. But it's a great. It's a great way to grow your relationships. Strengthen your bond together find your working out you got those endorphins flowing. There's you know all the different Hormones are flowing in your body and you. You're able to connect with each other in space so I definitely recommend in like doing together. Of course is something I will always promote. Go Find Jitsu jam in do classes together. They're gonNA create oxidised bond and a great community of people to be around so there are a lot of ways to get fit to gather and it's fun. Fitness is fun is fine specially fit sex. You guys you WanNa stay away from commenting on your woman's body in any kind of negative way. And but if they open the door ask them if they would be interested in going to yoga or going for a hike or going to Jim for a date. That's I mean. I think you can suggest those things like even if she doesn't open the door you know that doesn't have to be a negative thing like I don't think a woman should take it personally because you've said like WanNa go for a hike like Jordan. But you're not doing the personal development in the shadow you. Are you think just because her husband or boyfriend is like suit? Go for a hike or you know something gopher. Walk around the neighborhood. I mean if she's getting worked up about that like there's a lot more issues of course but then we're just talking about this one. Oh there's a lot of issues out there. Let me tell you what one of the most powerful things you can do guys for your women. Women is by them food. Women have a really unique relationship with food and Women Love Fried food. If you get your wife or girlfriend some French fries or some oh chicken fingers. You're better off getting your woman chicken fingers and roses. I'm telling you or when you're out for dinner order the desert. Just just get get the chocolate years if she loves chocolate or whatever the hell she loves. I'm telling you this it would be more than anything you can do for. And the s on the one hand on the other hand if she opens the door to hiking or fitness or whatever. Walk through that but yeah I it was one of the great coaching moves. Get the food for your girls. Well there's something about the that it's like it's a fine experience like it's A. It's almost like being handed or you know doing something you're not supposed to do right. You're you're not supposed to eat. You're not supposed to eat the fried instead of your like out on a date and you want to do all the time because it's not healthy but if you're out on a date and it's like he's ordering this stuff and he's like. Oh you know he. He's like doing these things and you're kind of in this space together like A. We're doing something we shouldn't do. Then creates that bond of like you know. I never really bad together. And it's fun and it creates a fun environment. Food should be in can be a lot of fun. You don't like I said it's the tree always eat like the because then you're gonNA be paying for it but yeah definitely when you're on a date in. Yes guys you should be feeding. Your woman always feed her always pay the bill. I know that it's not a quote modern feminist thing to say but do it. It's important when I go out with guys. I notice are they wanting to pay the bill? I will offer. I'm happy to pay the entire fucking bill if that's what I need but I'm also going to think differently about him afterwards. Right and that's a signal as you were saying earlier at the start of the story you could pick up on things really quickly like for example. Exactly what Sara said the signal that it sends a woman when you order the desert or give her Chicken fingers is what you're telling her as you're fine just the way you are. You are fine. I like you attracted you just the way you are that builds security and woman to what to go further in their fitness. It's on ironic thing. You want to show something fellas to a woman without saying a word. Pull her chair out for at the table open. The car door opened the door to the restaurant. When you're walking in guys don't do that shit anymore. It's always at a dinner party last night and I it was. Nobody at the table was couple. Everybody there there were. There were people that were in relationships there but none of them had their significant other with them and It was really wonderfully lead dinner party one of the Nice things was the women were all served urging Annan. Women took the first bite. And you know that's just something that you don't often see anymore and it's like with the quality so much of Just manners have been lost. You know and it's like we can. How do you quality is not like any of the women at the table? Felt like they were better or less than because they were taking the first spite. It was just Symbolically the mannerism in it. Just you know it makes things feel different in makes things feel a bit more special in and that's a good thing. It's good to feel special. I clearly there will be women out there. That will disagree with me on this and that is totally fine. It's big world with a lot of opinions and they're all entitled to it. This is Eros story so I say my opinion exact role. Goddamn podcast exactly. One hundred percent agree with you. I am the biggest fan of women on the planet at least tied for first women. I think are superior but there are at least equal with men. But they're not the same. There's a huge difference between being equal and the same and of course these are general terms with equality. Chivalry went out the window. Okay you guys want to be equal or try this on for size as well. We've been dealing with all his time. Fuck that Shit really you guys back in the day. You know what they did. I talk about in the days when women were considered property of men. If a woman walked into the room all the men would stand up out of politeness. Got Men would tip their hats to the women if you to anything like that. Because it's almost non existent anymore fellas. If you do anything that's chivalrous at all you're GONNA stand out do it. I will say that if I have to choose between you know paying for my own meal and having equality or not how the quality and not paying for my own fucking meal. I'll pay for my my own guide. Yeah meal an obese single till the day I die and be totally fine. By what shoes that over what women deal with all the horrors. What I'm saying is that right. They're not zero sum game. Exactly as I've said it's not a zero sum game. You can be women. I think women are really special and I don't think the guys that are well. I hope of the Women in the studio listening to this show but if you want to do well with women if you WANNA be a sex stallion if you want to be a master of sacks a man on fire you might want to consider these things because it works it does your and it's there's something to romance and Lake. Just kindling romance in that. Something has been so lost but but why like romances? A beautiful thing. It's fine is something that just Lights people brings them to life. You know in the art of romance has really been lost. In part of romance is paying for the meal pulling out her chair opening the door for her things like that is just. It's kindness kind gestures. It shows that you're gentleman. It shows that you have interest in her and it's something that I hope and that I I really do hope will come back At least in certain certain circles you know teach their own. Yes no doubt about it We've got another fitness oriented question here from time he's in Tulsa Oklahoma. He says Sarah. I am not happy with the size of my Dick. Should I engage in Dick Enlargement exercises and well? I mean. Just be careful with them because you want to. Just make sure that you don't end up hurting yourself. I have definitely had multiple guys in the man on fire program. Report back to me. The girlfriend or wife has told him that their day has gotten bigger by doing the practices that I give them into the ones that I get are all very safe and healthy and you not going cause any type of injury So yeah it. Can you know? It's definitely something that you can look into There's not any guarantees that you will be able to Like Glenn said just by losing weight is going to help the appearance of it but also like the size of the caucus one thing but also like the strength of your erection is important Like if a guy has a really firm cock like that makes a difference as well in so practices that I give guys helped with increasing blood flow. And they're helping their Cox nice and strong and firm so there. Is there a lot of different ways to go about it? And then of course there's so much more to thin your cock when it comes to sex so really being very well versed in how to use your hands how to use your mouth how to use toys things like Oregon go a really long way. Pena's health though. Pena's fitness is really important and fitness. Positively affects blood flow which affects strength of erections and stuff like that. Yeah I mean. Erectile dysfunction is prime like Been characterized as cardiovascular right in so like it's It's appearing in younger younger guys but there is some conflict Within you know medical communities as far as being diagnosed correctly because traditionally hasn't been seen in guys until round the age fifty. And now they're saying like why. Is it happening? Guys that are younger in is something other than actually Actual erectile dysfunction And so so. There's you know the the different aspects of what's going on but really like having a healthy body is going to help to keep your cock firm hard stronger erections longer Be able to last longer bed. Just have the stamina to keep having sex in you all ties together. You mentioned earlier that at this point of your life you would rather do ju. Jitsu than go on a date. Why why do you think your form fitness has taken such a priority over dating? I well so it's a few things. I feel really safe when I am with my teammates. In when I'm in my security is a very safe place I feel respected. I feel loved And it's you know it's a really great positive community and because we're rolling together we've got these oxytocin bonds right that are like connecting us to each other so really like love develops between people that do. Jujitsu together. That's why we're like. It's it's a family and often times Going on a date. I don't necessarily feel safe so if I am going out to meet somebody for the first time like the reality of being a female going on a day meeting somebody especially like if I met him on a dating out I. I'm screen shotting our entire conversation all his photos. I don't give my my phone I will want his I will My location will be given to somebody and I will give all this information to a third party one of my best friends before even go out and meet somebody and guys don't have to think about that type of thing when they go on a day like they can just go show up you know but I have to be careful like I'm watching making sure nothing is put in my drink making sure. I don't drink too much so that I'm staying aware of my circumstances and don't put myself in a compromise position so it's a lot of fucking hassle to go on a date. Most of the time is just not even worth it you know. And then there's often the pressure from the guy of going back to his place And it's not that I don't want sex is not that I'm not happy to hook up but it's more of a safety issue and it's just a very unfortunate reality of women have to deal with I mean and I'm talking as somebody who is trained in Jujitsu like I know how to defend myself and I still think like this. What percentage of women do you think? Don't think like that. Even though they should I mean I think a lot of women do is just part of our reality. Something very important for guys to know because as you said men don't have to deal with this. Emotionally or psychologically. Yeah yeah they don't so so yeah I'd rather go. Jujitsu have fun with my buddies role you know get like Jujitsu actually like satisfies a lot of the same physical sensations that we have during sex. I can leave feeling leave. Leave Ju Jitsu and feel like I've not that I'm not saying that it's like sex because it's not sexual but it's just like there's so much of the same sensations that can be met in that it say she hates me and it's like. I don't I don't need to go fuck after that moves the time. I'm just exhausted sewer and probably wouldn't wanNA fuck anyway at so concludes another rendition of storytime with Sarah. That's really true though. I mean so much of what is happening to us. Physiologically insects is happening. When you exert yourself physically. Yeah Yep and you know it's like for for for me to really have sex. That is satisfied. I it's I want elevated sex like I want to be with somebody who's really good in bed. I don't want to just go fuck just for the sake of fucking like I want somebody. I WANNA be highly sex with somebody. That knows what they're doing and I'm training these guys. These guys are rare. Look I do what I do raising your own stable zip you will go. Boys go with US. Creating an entire world bullets textile again so that way. I have plenty of choose from self-motivation officers. It's completely selfish endeavor that I'm on here call capitalism Smith look it up above the father of the free market was speaking of the free market. a good friend of yours come up with a great idea named well. Ironically Hitchcock. That's a hell of a name have to deal with your whole life. She developed a program called. You guys know the game What's it called cards a cards against humanity right which is by the way? I love that game. I have so much fun playing that. What do you think it's such a dark game? Catherine I like the no but I was gonna say there's something wrong with somebody that doesn't like dark humor. I don't know what it is. But there's there's something amiss if somebody can't laugh at the other side of the human experience so yeah I think anyway. Cards against humanity is fun. My former wife doesn't like cards against humanity by the way. So that's that's a little clue but in any case social but she came up with cards for humanity. And there's not not your former wife. Aaron Aaron Aaron Hicks your ex wife did not like cars against humanity so she created no. She doesn't like she just does not the story. We're trying to get crush. It pretty much Erin. Created cards for humanity your mic doesn't like humanity for or against but anyway now she's great. I love her to pieces. But anyway So explain what cards for humanity is and then specifically the thing that ties into the Cerro story so beautiful. Yeah so Aaron is a dear sister mine. I have known errand of very long time. She's beautiful human. Being really has a heart for humanity hence creating these cards and she's doing a lot of good on the planet so definitely check her website out cards for humanity dot com and specific zoo. She has several different decks of cards. And my favorite of course is the. Let's talk about sex deck kind of rhyme there. Let's talk about sex. So how does the? Let's talk about sex deck work so okay so you just She Based on the Chris System. So there's going to be seven different colors of cards one associated with each chocolate and I don't honestly don't know exactly how she created questions based on the chalk res- but I know she really thought it out in and did that But I just like that. It's good prompts for talking about sex so it is something that you can have with you. If you're like with a group of friends and you WanNa play a card and Do you WanNa play it with your girlfriends like Oh you helps you know it's like Oh let's play this. Let's try this and it just helps to open up. Conversation make these things more easily accessible not as awkward and weird to talk about. Shall we play a hand or two? Let's do it all right. So let's talk about sex from cards for humanity from Aaron Hickok and I'm going to pick a deke pick a purple one. One of the Purple Shaqra represents well purple would be the Crown Chaka Which would traditionally be thought of like access to The Cosmos it's like the most elevated of chocolate says. It's the one that's like. The highest energy most spiritual the one of you know deepest awareness and consciousness. So let's see what Karch he associated with. That is not a question it's a fill in the blank and it says my definition of Saxe is blank. You WanNa go. I know thank you know. I'll go first up. My definition of sex is the process of producing life and pleasure. Pretty good So what if eating food produces pleasures that sex overturning? The table here now. You're asking the questions. Not just thinking about your your. I think everything's about socks. Yes it's it's it's it's it's everything can be. Yeah Yeah I mean you take anything in life and if you have your attitude and your understanding and your perspective rights actually you can apply to anything alive so yes. Food is sensual their smells. It's can be either healthy or unhealthy just like fucking if you will. Yes produce I to me. That's a great definition of sex and the healthy sex when you're producing life and pleasure. Yeah this is like going through life making love like making life making love with all of creation. All of life is an orgasmic experiences. Very tantric dude. I saw John. Mayer make love to fifty thousand people obviously men and women and other identified genders at Wrigley field playing deadandcompany him and his guitar literally causing waves of ecstasy amongst fifty thousand other people. It was incredible and it was. It was sexual but it was. It was a concert. What is what is the professors definition of sex presses definition of sacks? Yeah I mean it really is very similar like I said making wake everything in life is making love and like I have truly experienced with. Contra like how everything can be an orgasmic experience like there can be ecstasy on the tip of your tongue brimming from the crown of your head like bursting from soles of your feet. In every moment with that you don't need to have intercourse like intercourse can be amazing. And you don't have to have it to have that same sexual satisfaction and when you think about it what is the definition of intercourse. It's not just about the procreative process right now. Those that are listening to this. Podcast are Inter coursing with Professor Sara and yours truly were intercourse with each other. You take a healthy attitude. A person who is doing the shadow work who's got personal development going on who has understand that everything is about making love to yourself and to your fellow soldiers here. That's a pretty good definition of SEX RIGHT THERE. I think so. We're all having sex right now. Some are having a better than others. I'm having a pretty damn good. I believe that about Okay this one this card looks like it is I want say Maroon but it might be like chartreuse or read probably there read red flat out red so red is associated with the Root Chakra. Which would be in women. The cervix in men the pair neom could also be the anus. It's associated with safety Just really grounded. Earth energy is just that route of who we are. It's Yeah it's like that a primal aspect of us. The statement needs to be completed on the red card is a mind blowing. Sexual experience was blank when the really stands out for me was So I when I had sex with the guy that I would end up learning contra with a the very first time that we had sex I will always remember because it was a moment of like just mind blowing coursing energy through my body in. I just remember thinking like what the fuck is. This was incredible. How important pivotal was that moment to get you motivated to the direction that you went on and are still on. I mean that is really why I'm here today doing what I do. How do you describe to people what you do when they ask you what do you do? We always ask that at that dinner party. Somebody said what do you do? Yeah Cerro I ruined sex coach. I've got my whole spiel there. There's that word again. Good good spiel. I know it's really coming out today. Resume recent You must be bringing it out of me so yeah I'm a man. Sex coach certifies Levin Relationship Coach with a specialization in Contra and men's sexuality I work with men to help them be advanced lovers and sexual masters and then they say will what a guy is usually come to me for cookie for and like well. Typically the top issues that men seek out hope around our erectile dysfunction premature ejaculation delayed ejaculation Porn Addiction. And she doesn't WanNa have sex with me anymore so those tend to be the top five pain points that guys have so do a lot of work with guys in throughout those areas but what a teach so much far beyond that really helps them in their own personal development really helps them to be fully rounded sexually embodied human beings In most people have no idea what the fuck I'm talking about. That's fine would you? You don't get it. Go that deep. Initially you meet somebody. Let's say you're at a bar and it's you're having a pleasant cocktail and conversing and some woman comes up to you. And she says hi. My name is Sandra and say hi. I'm Sarah What do you do? Sarah what what's your initial first foray into explaining what you do. I'm I'm a sex coach. I like that I'm a sex coach. Yeah I mean it's to the point like I'm so over answering the question. Honestly go for another interview but I would imagine as you get into the details of. Would you just said about what you do? I'll bet especially women open up to you like incredibly and yeah men and women both do when you get a chance to go into that kind of detail and when women are so impressed. Because you know it's Ama- sacks coach because immediately people because of our fucked up religious society go something that's naughty versus something that's all holistic and beautiful and and healthy and and you talk about fit sacks after they if they don't go there. What are the things that the women connect with of those things that you just said about the complaints that you're getting from their mind? What's the number one thing women say to you? I well because premature ejaculation is so prevalent that something that a lot of women Struggle with as well you know I mean the struggle struggle along with the guy like because the guy. It's really hard on the guy but it's hard on the woman to a lot has looked confide in me about that and also just wanting guys to know how to give them orgasms better like understanding their body like knowing how to find their clitoris in making them square and giving them year the deeper vaginal orgasms as well But they always think me so grateful for the work that I'm doing. The Dinner Party I was at the women. Were like. Thank you so much for doing this work. It is so needed. So that's nice. I think it's more than Nice. It must be very affirming and and Not Not as reinforcing what you do and how hard you work at it. Yeah Yeah it definitely is. It's nice to have. It is nice to have that because I work very very hard and it feels feels good to have a people saying thank you. Who Do you think it's affected more? Psychologically the man or the woman with premature ejaculation or with as a general erectile dysfunction now. We'll psychologically I think it's the guy like he really gets wrapped up in his head about it. But I will say from the female perspective you know being with guys that have experienced both like I know for me like after. It's happened once that I'm like a worried that it's going to happen again. And I'm like definitely not wanting to make a big deal about it being super cool and super. It's exposed parties. Psychologically any women that are listening. Don't make a big deal has just gonNa make worse molly that but no this ladies. It's not you it's not you. I mean that's the thing like we expect somehow that our bodies are just robotic that. They're always going to respond in the same way a re single time and it's just not the reality you know. This is a human body having different experiences and You know it's like with a woman. She isn't going to get wet every single time. She isn't gonNA or Gaza and the same way every time where she may not worry at the time all she you know some day she's GonNa WanNa have sex and other times. She isn't in so you know if a guy has you different issues or different things happen on different days. It's just what's going on in his body if you want to continue your personal development if you want to be sexually fit if Sarah Never wrote. The book fit fucking.

Honestly it was so long ago is this is the mid nineties was he was he. What was he like. I do not remember. quite honest. Was not weird enough for you well. This was when spitz was Still me him. We're doing it together. So my little ugly ducklings there were a lot less of those yeah and he loved to bring in the person who had hit rock bottom in their life. You know if someone walked in like a needle sticking out of their arm and saying i'm ready to change it'd be like okay. Can you start tomorrow. Just kicked cleaned up and a few people that i took a chance on have gone on to have major. Success took a chance. Yeah major success okay. Well they're working in the industry. Full time all right hosting a morning show. Excuse me no no no no. I'm not saying that. Took a chance luck. They had no experience or had just experienced from twenty years ago and they had moved on. Can we're doing something worth their life than wanted to come back with it. You hired like some five year old guy. I did verizon worker. Then i what the hell you doing. The old the the trucker the guy was in the teamsters retired. What wasn't there a there was a cop was having a tough time on the job and he wanted to try different career right. Yeah there's a the active nypd. I remember him and he to tell me that all the stuff he was seeing and it would blow my mind. He would come in and go. Hey how are you. How are you can go ever see a dead person just two hours ago. Oh my god. Wow i remember that. Yeah that one guy that you brought in it was still a story. A must have been over fifty years old. He was the verizon guy. Didn't you tell him no. That was not the right time to start this whole thing. Hey listen it's why not. Why not take it. You never know again and listen. What am i going to be practicing. Ageism no no. It's not bad. it's just that it's you know what the track is. I understand but they wanted to take a shot okay and there was a guy who had worked for dunkin donut. Three years up at the boston area he was in his fifties was one of mine. No radio experience. You've hit rock bottom. He just got divorced saturday six. Yeah i remember. I'll never forget the interview. The internship interview with you. Never forget it. The old studio. Say i sat down there and you told me this is the job for you if you want to drive a honda civic for the rest of your life like me. That's what you said. I remember you telling me that meaning behind the scenes. No i know. I put i understand i was like i don't wanna do it every one and even tried to. I even offered to do a second internship for free. But you hired me out of that. First internship i did. Yeah but i'll. I'll never forget the eddie eddie. With long flowing locks following him he's got a stack of papers. This high moose was sitting in the newsroom. I remember that. All vividly. Sid rosenberg open the door for me. That day. i remember every detail i remember. Can't remember anything. These days. But every detail of that i can remember but i love. I will never not love the story. You rejecting olivero and him now not only did he rise through. Cbs radio head of programming. The company but now he's come back with entercom and to to run all of them. I don't think you'll forget that. Either he has threatened. Your anything has since he's come back. It's been mentioned. It has some thoughts on more than one occasion right but not like i never felt threatened and in a way i can take credit for his success because that drove drove him. Yeah he sometimes you got have the one guy in your life. That just wants to step on you so you can use him as a like a a launch pad to success this varada apple and they threw it away but then it it took root always routed at ron it at the time yeah weird analogy but whatever you know mean barbed wire in same intern. Class mean bob. Door same inter-. I was jealous of him because he got shifts to he got also got higher. Nothing man i think they like him more than he might be better to me it producing because he was into it. Bob you have a jew wanted to be on the air. I did but then i realized that there was a point there. I can't keep telling people because nobody takes you seriously. You kept telling people you wanna be on the air that they'd never take you seriously. It sounds like you know what. Let me try to focus on producing. I'll show my personality in other ways and that's exactly i worked. I used to get into arguments sports arguments with the host and stopping and do voices for summers and then that that's how it all started but those intern days man. I tell you this you know. It's a real shame sooner. i've in terms anymore. When are we allowed that. We're not even allowed that terms that i don't know. And whatever the program after they sorta killed it and then brought it back. It's not the same man. Think about all the people got opportunities at all these all. These people hit rock bottom that you could hire but you can't now no i mean that's sucks. A internship programs are awesome the give people opportunities to get in the door. And do these things you know. And then they took it all away. I told you. That's how i started at the university of maryland. Yeah ooh wd. Wbz tv with gail gardner cutting tapes for her. Yeah i always thought. I'd be on the air somehow but you gotta learn behind the scenes. I before he can do that. Sure and that was doing late night. Tv and cutting you know cutting tapes for highlights and just praying to god that you got the right tape cut and they call it up and plays that. It's the highlight that she's talking over. I love the fact that you have that in your past because you know what it's like exactly and anxiety and builds up and we used to have you know interns had overnight shifts weekend shifts and Evening shifts everything and now it's like only business hours and it's like a what. Yeah that radio. Yeah it's too bad. Hopefully that could change over the change in the future. We'll getting soft. Eddie get solved to soft are rocco's in connecticut. What's up rocco. Hey hey rocco chapman wanna talk about this. Aaron hicks got okay. The biggest disappointment in the yankees Since two thousand sixteen this guys making six million dollars a year and he wants to say he's not gonna play tonight. Such a huge disappointment to not only a fan but as a police officer in a lifelong yankee fan. Come on yeah well. We saw a lot of this last summer as well. Rocco where players would decide. They weren't gonna play for a game or two aaron hicks. Obviously this was emotional for him for reasons that that he may have. An opportunity explained coming up soon. I know the circumstances being what they are and the country being as divided as it has been. And there's gonna be a lot of people who are police officers police officers families those who support the police that are going to have a different reaction to what aaron hicks is done. And i understand that too and i think that he understands that but we will one thing that that we learned from last summer is that they are going to be athletes who are affected by social issues so much that they're going to go to their their managers coaches and ask to not play and they're going to be granted that yeah he also played in minnesota when i came up for three years so he knows the community and all that other stuff and i. I really thought that. Aaron boone handled it perfectly yesterday. I we've talked about this for the last year and this year right when we understand you know there are hard feelings here and there are hard things to discuss here but there are facts in every case that need to be born out and we all need to know those facts i think before we jump to conclusions so For the cops out there. We appreciate everything that you do. I ran into a couple of cops the other day on the street. And i said thank you man. We appreciate you walk in the streets. And it's not easy when you're running into these situations but for the athletes that feel that they are overwhelmed emotionally by and don't feel like playing that day. I totally understand that to. Hey by the way the nhl the nba and major league baseball. All canceled games yesterday games yesterday. So i i understand that it's nothing of that is shocking to me. No i mean this is a very similar to what we saw last summer when there were some when the nba came back remember the nba came back. There was there was a lot of players who album gonna play tonight. Or all the league's did and then on top of all of this. We are hyper partisan country because there are forces on each end of the spectrum that are trying to drive wedges between people and it's basically all about race you know that i know that all of our listeners know that and i'm being tired I'm getting tired of being told what i should like. And what i should like and i know how i live. I know what's going on. You know. I mean. I've been around for a long time. So you have to understand people you have to listen to. People can't just say hey. It's my way or the highway. It's got to be a two way street and that's why last year and even this year and even today this morning when we wake up i totally understand where aaron hicks is coming from. And if if he and his manager have a heart to heart talk in. The managers tells us as the fans. This is the deal. And i believe the manager sure which is an explanation which we did not get from a lot of the kyrie irving or never did never in the careering personal reasons stuff. Aaron boone spoke about. It said what was going on why he missed the game. I know lots of people in sports fans say. Wait a second. He's still getting paid. A stanton almost missed the game like he thought about it as we ended up plan. So it's gonna hit different people differently when you have three hundred and fifty million people in a country that is hyper. Partisan as i said and a lot of the is built on race by people that want to make it all about that. You know you're going to have situations like this that we're all gonna have to deal with it's like to me. It didn't bother me one bit at all. Yeah no i mean. And i also it made sense when i saw it. I was like okay. You know. I wonder if i was there i get in. I wonder if there's going to be others. So when when i don't well you know again what you don't want is you want peaceful protests if you want protest peacefully fine no problem.

Well they worked together but they worked together but also he's told the story at least to me on a few occasions that a rod will just show up with dunkin donuts coffee and donuts for the crew and just go to the studios and watch the games with them either. Gay rod goes the dunkin donuts and picks up the call. I do i do. It goes through the drive through really do. Does he hate any of those guys. Is he ever told you. You know a rod's great.

I did needed that. I right jerry. What's happening this hour. A-rod once upon a time played for the yankees. He doesn't anymore but the yankees did beat the blue jays and florida last night. Three one no gary sanchez. Garrett cole nights kyle gosh yoka made the star made account be ray will deal. Oh two and the vicious hit in the year to right center in deep up all as high as far that has gone. It is a two run home. Run for kyle. Gushy oga to right center higashi. Oca- the home run stroke. Net is john sterling on the fan. The yankees were down one. Nothing going into that. Evening had no hits against ray and rig nato door gets the it and then higashio or the two run homer he would add another home run later in the game and the eighth yankees beat the blue jays. Three to one For aaron boone. No shock that his catcher one yard twice. No that's power. You demonstrated that last year. I thought he was great behind the plate tonight and Obviously we need every bit of and it certainly worked out for him. I mean i was just looking for good pitches. hit and You know. I got a got a couple of tonight and i think it it just worked out. Well i'm just glad we got the win. And it worked out for cole. Who settled in after his first and second innings some big misfires in the first but not not a ton of bad pitches zone so he was very happy with his outing when six. He wound up striking out. Eight gets the winnings to an area of one point. Four seven retire the final fifteen batters that he faced as we discussed no erin. Hayes didn't play for personal reasons with the shooting. Minnesota tonight jameson. Tie on opposing john. Rio will have it on the fan for you. Right after carton roberts. At six twenty five. Mets phillies a no-go. They cancelled that nice and early. So they'll play to. They'll get to seven games day and one of the pitchers will use is indeed marcus stroman. So he was not happy about. Sunday was disappointed after his five days. That is not the case. He played catches. They say felt pretty good. He'll start the second game tonight against aaron nola. The first game will be taiwan walker and chase anderson Twins and red sox postponed following the police shooting on sunday. Also the wild and blues didn't play and that also means the nets and timber. wolves didn't play either. Have you guys seen anything about them playing tonight because they postponed it and they said not sure about playing tonight. I have not seen an update anywhere. I'm just wondering if you guys have. I'm guessing probably already now. Brooklyn is scheduled to play in philadelphia. Tomorrow night the sixers did win last night as they beat the mavericks won. Thirteen ninety five. The knicks also played last night and the knicks. Who fell back to twenty five and twenty seven one back to back games and then last night they made it three in a row. Use rannells spins turnaround. Shot rattles the foul to all season long in the paint. A chance for a three point play barnaby. Thirty four point effort ten rebounds as well. Knicks won eleven lakers ninety six elfriede payton had twenty derrick. Rose fourteen off. the bench. Air was coach. Tom izzo obviously a lot of the conversation. After the game about randall who has been outstanding us stepped up at a monster game again. Make them big shots seems to do it. Game in game out here was randall. I he certainly was getting a lot of the. Mvp chance in the crowd is awesome. Not just the crowd though his teammates as well. Hey just what we do all been doing all year. Yup that's winning more than they're losing three in a row. Twenty eight and twenty seven. On the year there in new orleans tomorrow night against zion williamson on lonzo ball. And the pelicans who last night did beat the kings one. Seventeen one ten brandon. Ingram had thirty four in that game and the wizards beat the jazz in utah. One twenty five one twenty-one stamping. Utah's twenty four. Game home winning streak. Also you had Steph curry passing wilt chamberlain for the all time scoring lead in warriors history. They beat the nuggets. One sixteen one. Oh seven curry knows. Pretty wild for him to be anywhere near him in any record book of now be on top. Like it's it's surreal. While because i grew up in the game of basketball you hear his name you know is something extremely special on no matter what it is also had a lotta ladies as he wrote in his book to Also in this game. Jamal murray the knee injury went out. Some reports say could be significant and serious. We'll find out what tests and the suns beat the rockets one. Twenty six twenty phoenix a franchise record. Eighteenth reason one half. They did that in the first half last night. We heard from. Sam darnold now. An ex jet quarterback he is with the carolina panthers This was the one little clip that everybody thought was cute when he was asked what advice. You'd give to the next jets quarterback how fun and don't pay attention to the media nam joking now. You're not joke that's probably true. He says. I didn't take a personal even after joe. Douglas told his mom that they would take care of business. We understand that and My mom i think she understands that. Now so we're growing up. He says in the end he did enjoy his time here. Respect nothing but respect for everyone in new york and with the jets Those people helped me out tremendously when i was there But obviously now. I moved on and i'm excited to start my career here. In north carolina he was really gushing about douglas to and the new head coach and everything that he's seen and done here so wish him the best but he starts a new career now in carolina also saw the report. And i guess this you tell. Me boomers is unusual. He says the story him and teddy bridgewater have not had one communication since bridgewater moved on. Yeah i don't think that they will. You know ted. He's gonna try to get his own career back on track and you know it sam's team now and as roy no reason for them to even discuss anything fair enough. I don't know if they had relationships. Yep what was that. What john to in quarterback not here. But they're dammit and carolina the the bug signed giovanni bernardo to a one year deal meantime. Julian edelman announced his retirement twelve years so he came. Let's see tom. Brady is forty one is that right. They believe is forty two and forty two. Now yeah so.

I mean he's on the back burner. I wouldn't say knee-deep i would say waist-deep or maybe even neck we're getting close to the necktie neck deep. We're getting close to the neck deep. Yeah that's okay. This is the way it's supposed to be. You know you move into a new place. You've got stuff going on. Yes that's all it is people in and out of the house and people are wire and stuff got people come to your house that they go home to their you know significant others or to their family and say you never guess who's house working in today. I think some people do and some people nadi. What a nice house. He has that well. I hope that'd be nice if they said that. But you know what this businesses people are either. They really know who are really into it or they have no idea like the experience that i've had there either people that are like die hard fans like. Oh my goodness you know. The guy stopped by wins. Bouma coming out wins boomer. He's actually been here ready. You had no idea in detroit. He did a little sneaky sneaky drive by one day. I walked through then.

Go get zada here but But yes i mean. I think some people do i. I suppose now that. I'm into construction. And i'm doing things. Do you think i was gonna ask you this so with the celebrity secrets celebrity renovation. Where they give you the demo equipment and everything and you've been ripping things down hammer and stuff right. Are you inspired now to do more of that stuff on your own you know.

I'm coming in where jason his guys have done most of the work. I'm kind of like a secondary worker. I did steal his tool belt. The first day was very happy about that tool belt.

I wonder because me and you sort of the same way like we don't want to do any renovations on our own that we don't wanna screw up the house but you see my gal hell of a lot of fun. Doing is well jason. The contractor on the job is great. He actually very easy to work with. It gives you a lot of instruction he tells you what's going on in this wise on tv.

There's there's a nichelle turner who is the host of it and she's got her opinions. Yeah there's a lot opinions all over the place when he cooks it. Sounds like this is going to be awesome.

Estevan Florial's Big Opportunity w/ Matt Kardos, Pinstriped Prospects

"Do you think ken griffey junior was prodigy. I do. He was the last guy to make baseball cool. Listen to rap change. You wanted to. Kim griffey junior jersey bad michael jordan of baseball but that legacy of his wasn't passed down to this generation and i couldn't figure out why once you're on the field in between those white lines is just you all episodes of american prodigy. The kid are now available. Wherever you get your podcast brought to you by coors light made the chill. We are breaking down all aspects of yankee. Baseball is the bronx pinstripes. Show with your host andrew. Rotundi and scott ryan. Let's go guys happy to join you mid week. We got a special drill down episode. Today we're gonna be talking a lot about esteban floreal to joining me. Is matt ardo so you can find him on twitter at matt. Cardoso's the assistant managing editor for pinstripe prospects and also the beat writer covering the aa somerset. The new aa somerset patriots for the new york yankees farm system madman. Welcome welcome. yeah it's good to connect finance like we've been connected forever but hasn't actually spoken live. So i appreciate you thinking of me in in breaking down flurry i'll definitely. We've both been around the block covering the yankees for a long time. And for whatever reason just hasn't lined up that we've we've had this conversation so longtime in the making glad to have you on and this is we're trying to do these mid week episodes where we talk a lot more specific about a particular topic and i think that in in the yankees fans mind one of the biggest things that we're all looking at from the major league level is what in the hell is happening with the outfield. The outfield which you could look at it as a potential strength People were excited walking in with. Clint frazier. being the starting left fielder. you know. There's a lot of excitement him turning a corner and twenty twenty Obviously aaron hicks with the long term contract. We know the injury history there and then and then the big man. Aaron judge in right that being said estimate floreal is a guy that we have been hearing about for a very long time since he was seventeen years old. He's been it seems like he's been in low. Hey for forever. That's that's where he had been For probably the majority of his career and where he's had the most success but he's definitely rising the ranks at this point. We're starting to see him inch closer to what could be a major league grassroots on the forty man And now with aaron hicks going down with this wrist sheath injury you know it could be something small. It could be something that takes him out with surgery for the year. They might be looking for a new center fielder. So we're gonna talk a lot about estimate fleury out you're covering to somerset patriots So that's where he's gotten his most at bats now he's in scranton but definitely want to hear all that you have to say about estimate floreal and i guess we could start with with this year and then kind of backtrack to to the history of of the player is definitely. This is obviously my first time. Seeing him live other than yet. A cup of coffee with then. Aa affiliate in in trenton back in. I believe that was twenty seventeen And he had come up for the playoffs. When the when the tampa season had ended to to join trenton and help them for their Their playoff run and so he had one game where you actually had at batson. He got his got his first hit at the aa level. There see that doesn't go in the record books or anything so it doesn't really look like he ever made the aa level prior to year but technically did on but at that point. You're probably thinking like oh well. This guy's definitely ticketed to open at aa of following year more than likely had spent bet full year and high and so when he didn't open the year at a double a in two thousand eighteen kind of raise a little bit of flag. Like what the hell's going on with this guy. It seemed like he was ready. A at enough confidence to bring him up Why not now and it just feels like since that point is stock i think in the system and probably in the eyes of a lot of outsiders is really gone down At one point he was probably the number one overall prospect in the system now is a borderline top. Ten gu depending on who you talk to on. So he's definitely has a long way to go to rebuild bat stocking. I'll be the way that a lot of people on the outside you him But just seeing him now for at least is promoted obviously now to aaa so. Unfortunately i didn't get to see him as long as it into submitted being able to get to see him in the early part of this year but that first week that i saw ease is an electric player. I think that's the first word i would use it. It's right them Without even looking at any of the numbers any of the stats that he puts up just his presence on. These is bigger than a lot of other guys he. He's definitely stands out on the field. He just looks the part of like an electric athletic build. And if if you just align all the guys up he'd be the guy that you picked out that we probably say oh. This guy's probably the best player on the team without having ever seen any of them So he has the look for and elise off the season with a home. Run in somerset. And you're like holy shit like is it finally all clicking now for this guy so at that point the guy leads off the season with a home run and then all is that. that's from that point on become. I have to be in my seat to watch this guy coming to bat for beer when the second guy in the order comes up but i need to be my seat for one flurry also coming up. That and the he's electric. The problem is that they're they're still holes in the swing and is got good pop. Good gap power. I think he has ten hits on the year between aa and aaa and eight of them for extra base hit so like when he hits it. It's going to the gap that's going to the corner going over. The wall The electric city in the bat juice. It's there But i i think he has a long way to go until you become putting him in an everyday role in the big leagues granite right now like with all the injuries that you explained that the major league level and the depth that aaa isn't all that impressive either. So when you're talking about guys that are probably the next best guy. He probably is the next guy just given what's left available but i think an ideal world everyone was healthy hicks healthy frazier's performing all that stuff acquainted. I think you wanna keep floreal all down there for a good chunk of time to continue working on what he needs to work on. So that when you bring him up he's there stay But my first impressions are he is a little bit more polished than i thought he would be given that he's been in system now for what six or seven years and this is his first time starting at a at a upper level affiliate. So you going in thinking man. Two thousand fifteen two thousand fifteen us. Seventeen seventeen years old and fifteen was his first season and here we are in twenty twenty one and he's just cracking aa for the first time in now obviously moved onto aaa. So there's obviously like a six or seven season body of work that doesn't necessarily align with the first eleven games that he's put up but even if you look at those numbers that he's put up these first eleven or twelve games of the season. He's only two a week is on basis like to eight so like he's got the power number's everybody sees the viral videos of along home runs. And and the triple double that he said everybody sees those videos. And i think it's more of a case of the major league. Outfield production has been so putrid that the yankees just want anybody and he's a name that they've heard for a long time. They see the home runs on twitter. They see on youtube and they're like oh well this guy plays centerfield. We need a center fielder. he's hitting home runs. He can't be any worse than what we have up there now and so i. i don't think i've had. I put this on twitter the other day. But i've covered a lot of guys that have up through the system labor torres. Aaron judge gary sanchez. Luis severino all these guys that are up in the big leagues now. That are contributing. I don't think i've had by mentions as much as i've had florio for people that want him up as the big leagues now like immediately they they wanna now and i. I haven't seen that type of momentum behind prospect in a long time. So i found that kind of interesting that five or six games into a season. I had so many so many people wanting this guy at the big league level. It's funny the yankee fan fan is a is a is an interesting specimen. Because when when they're hurt would there's nobody performing on the major league level or There's a potential to look down below to see what else is there. The grass is always greener. When you look out and you see a prospect. That's you know having success. And you're seeing some of these highlights like you're talking about so i that's a big part of it. I mean frazier in left is just. I think he going into last night. Or maybe after last night was Was labeled and identified. Actually has the worst outfield batter in the american league. Like the worst. I think dead. Last the he's he's been that bad He's improved his defense. That's that's played out. I think this year still. He's made some some great superman catches he does. That looks good when he does it. But that's a big deal when you see that there's guys that are not performing and that's not even florio's position but the what it does is it affects was what's happening in the rest of the outfield gardeners. Not hitting ex hex will when it was healthy wasn't hitting especially from the left side. He was just a you know a essentially an easy out. So you got aaron judge who has been one of their more consistent players and and the rest of the outfield is just left. The yankee fan yearning. When you see yell out there actually healthy. That's the biggest thing to me. That's one of the big the biggest excitement points for me for seeing fleury out. There is that he's out there. I mean this guy has been riddled with injury. Two thousand eighteen The the hameed surgery which is a bone in the hand. Nineteen broken wrist hours That we're at an event that game in In tampa so we we had about one hundred and fifty of us up at the bullpen. Cl- watching esteban florio break his wrist. Unfortunately and then twenty twenty with the pandemic. you know. It's it's a season that you can either throw out or conveniently except if it's a good news depending on what your numbers you're looking at. But for him it was a year of growth was stunted almost for game action so seeing him active in double a the fact they got him up the triple as fast as they did. I like that. i'm glad they're doing it. They basically have to push him at this point because there's a need especially if if hicks is out for the season there's an absolute need in centerfield. Yeah for sure. And i think that's gonna be the depending factor of how quickly you see him up there. I think i think you bring up. Lamar who i actually forgot. The signed until the the minor league season started. But i mean he's an easy enough guy to call up in a pension. You can live with him. Up there for is some versatility so he could move between all three spots But i think that's like a very short term plug and play guy to where if hicks is going to miss months or is gonna need surgery like lamar's not that's not the guy that you want up there and so i think he's up there at this point until they figure out long-term what the deal with ex is going to be but then at that point he's a guy that you're easy enough to become for with dfa and you figure out the forty man from there but no sweat taking him off the forty man at losing because as like him come a dime a dozen So i think that's going to be turning. Factor is if hicks is going to be long term. You have see plug florio right into that spot and probably doesn't miss a beat might be just as good as as or probably maybe not even might even be a little bit better than hickson defensive. I mean the guy's a wizard Didn't get to see him that much off. Ceiling six games but urban area. I mean the guy's a stud defensively so you're not gonna lose anything. Defensively and worse comes to worst. The way i look at it as what i've seen. The guy still has holes in his swing. He's he's striking out. This year at thirty percent is at bats is career averages thirty two percent of his at bats he fans so he's going to strike out a lot at least right now until he may maybe nails down his plate discipline a little bit. It did say he's working on that. And i know the yankees have kind of put emphasis on him. Trying to take walks a little bit more. But i think you live with it even if he's going to go up there and hit to ten to twenty. That's what you're getting out of it now anyway so As long as you get the defense from him. I think you live with it but i think i think what happens. Ex moving forward is really going to determine how how fast you see him come but of his he is meant he has the good c has the tools is just. It's it's easy to see why the yankees haven't given up on him and why three four five bed seasons. They've still stuck with him and they're they're still a really high ceiling in there and it's interesting. The point that you brought up about the injury issues are those are fluke. Injuries like you said hamid the hand the wrist all that stuff they are. Those are fluke. Injuries it's not like the guy has a history of like raking both pulled his hammy. He doesn't have that long injury history. Where you're worried about like the work. There's no soft tissue injuries. Yes sir. So that i wouldn't worry too much about the injuries but in the grand scheme of things it's time in the system has been stunted by that loss time. There's there's no question about that. So you look at his agent. He's twenty three and you're like well shit. This guy been here two years ago if he was the goods but he lost so much time and one one of the things. I was so curious about going into this season. Was what the what the yankees organizational philosophy was gonna be with aggressiveness in promotions. And moving guys. Because you have to factor in their age where they should be at this point and then kind of a line that up with the euro lost development from last year so like some guys went to the site we didn't have is on the site. We don't know what a lot of guys did. A yankees have internalized there. They know what those guys did. They were playing good competition guys that were up and down from the major leagues on an everyday basis. And guys that were consistent aaa performers. So i think. If i'm not mistaken i've i i think florio led the site in so i think he had fourteen homers at the site last year it. I don't know who those runs came against. What those situations. Where but the information. I know he. He led the al-zeit in homers last year. But the yankees obviously have a little bit more information on him than the general media has. Because we weren't there. I don't know what he did so i think you have to. Just wonder do the yankees most see his time at the site as a year of development that he would have gotten at the aa or aaa level. Or was it just another. This is just practice for the guy. I don't know how they view it but it seems in the way that they've been really hesitate to promote him from aa. After only six or seven games. There's really no hesitancy to move him to aaa at seat at lines up and being on the forty man. He's the natural guy to get the call sooner than later But it's just an interesting to see that even just florio but all these high end prospects in general who are now just sniffing the upper levels for the first time like once the level of aggressiveness. Moving forward what al-zeit in twenty twenty like. What did that do for them. Did it do anything. And will they be a little bit more aggressive to kind of get them at the level that their age should probably align with. It's it's pretty fascinating. Yeah that's a really good point. I didn't even think about that to be honest to you. Talking about some of the success or or non success at the national using that. They're not in the books right. You're not gonna you're not gonna find that on on Any of the sites that are collecting stats so it feels like a missed year. But you're right. There was good competition there if they were able to level the the intensity of competition and and really get those game atmospheres within. I don't know how that translates into more. Of like a scrimmage or like we want a scout looks at that and how they see it differently but the fact that he led the all site in home runs is interesting. I remember i had This was i think two thousand eighteen. I had been bad laurent talk from baseball america. Talking about This was when this florio was in the summer league. I think the year so are following. I'm sorry he was in two thousand seventeen years in the fall. It was just after that. I believe was talking about his his plate discipline. And like that's been the the knock on floreal. I think for a long time is that discipline. And what's interesting about plate discipline for me. When i'm looking at a young player that has you know over aggressiveness. At the at the plate not recognizing pitches. Not being able to take those walks like. You're saying that's that is a rep. That is a rep maturity development. That usually happens over time as they get more at bats competition as they see more pitches and and that is something that you liked it that that's a key moment where you're looking at the development of a player over time. Are they making the adjustments. Because they've seen these pitches and that's where florio is right now were were. He's at a aa aaa. Has he seen enough pictures where he can actually take that next step to really have more of a plate discipline which he's gonna absolutely need in the majors Being able to lay off those outside outside. Curveballs like it's when when Judge came up when sanchez came up. I mean they were just flailing flailing flailing. They made the adjustment when they made got to. That level at least judge did and then you start to see that development. So i'm very curious to see how floreal now that he's out these higher levels. And i think i think you're right. I think they're pushing him more now because a little bit of prospect fatigue right. I mean the guy's been around for forever. It seems it's like show up or don't you're twenty three years old now. We got a week and given the situation. I i think i pointing this. I wouldn't when we first opened. But i think the injuries have kind of or star hand a little bit more than they probably thought they would have to in the first month and a half of the major league season. I don't think they planned on having to rely on once estefan floreal doing in mid-may like we need him. I don't think they thought that they would get to this point this suit but that's the reality that they're looking at right now so i think the is going to be on him more and more as each day on Given just the injuries that they're facing even that triple eighteen is battered with injuries. Where they've gutted the somerset roster. They've taken their five or six best offensive players in the last four or five days to wear somerset's just plug it in play is that were in complex leads to fill out a roster because aaa so with injuries so the fact that floreal now and guys zach banner is he's been in the system for awhile he's back up in aaa and it just brought up thomas he's been around for what feels like forever and is another guy who even probably bring him up like. I don't think you're comfortable playing vaccine for three or four months at the major league level. He might be a guy that suharto lamar situation whereas you needed him for a week or two plug and play cu we. We could rock with that. But if you're gonna call up a guy. Long-term i think l'oreal is the obvious option. But like you said the guys lost so much time with injuries and development and stuff like east twenty three and he should be there now but he's really only at a double a level in terms of development. So if you bring him up you have to be comfortable with the fact that he's playing and learning and developing the same time. There's going to be that balance where he might strike out thirty five or forty percent of the time but that short porch and right you take the two were three homers. He might give you in the first couple of weeks that he plays that. You're not getting right now. So there's obviously there's talent there's juiston that bat the guy can play. He's gonna hit a mistake. There's there's no doubt about it. He's he's good enough to do that but he's he's he's still learning and eat is definitely as in the swing but I i like what i saw from him. In the very short time that i did and i think the yankees really wouldn't miss a beat compared to what they're getting now if they had to rely on him festive thing. I mean take injuries even out of it. Aaron hicks was an absolute hole on the left side. Absolute you might as well not even you might as well not even walk up with a bat like he wasn't doing what he normally does. He wasn't taking pictures like you normally does. He was striking out of high clip. Like just doc from the left side and floreal gives you that that left handed bat all right beyond floor. Al matt what are some other names that are potentially down here. There's a with you mentioned lamar being added to the forty. I agree with you. I think he's an easy. Dfa and that's why he was called up at this point They can make a move without him with him. And and not really blink. An eye but You mentioned and the other guys that we should be looking out for. That either have made that jump up to scranton to to fill in some bodies or Are there any situations that were we look at where Similar to how we had the liza come up a few years ago. Straight from double a Any any names. We should be watching out for as as the season goes on. And i think the two obvious names that would have come up. In in lieu of lamar. Lamar was the first guy. But in the last seven or eight days screen has put a guy like trae amber gay on the field who's Excuse me on the field. On the i l. with an injury i think he probably would have been the guy to get the call. He's been in all star level player in the minor leagues. He's been in the system for while double digit homer like for sixty seventy rbi league level. You're good pumpkin. Could play both corners. I think he probably would have been the guy that got. I call egos on the. I l. the day before a flurry all goes up to aaa and then greg allen a guy that the yankees picked up in the offseason is now on the i l. e. probably would have went up before lamar as well. So there's guys in that aaa depth group that are probably more suited to be up there then moammar but lamar is the only one that's healthy at this point so But i i don't think either of those injuries to amber gay or allen or or viewed as serious or long-term so if if they end up the faa amore at some point and they need another bodies for a shorter period of time. And don't want to call up flurry. All than i would think those two guys probably get the call Next stop but in terms of long term like this guy's a prospect like watch him back is not really there at aa or aaa at the moment terms of outfield. that's More or of that that. I think that that you could like rely on at the major league. Level is is like hit on the pitching side. You call a couple of guys that are in this summer simple penner in that scranton bullpen and pitch at the big league level and not miss a beat. you really would be particularly under the bullpen But a lot of the depth in the system now is in lower levels Both on the starting pitching side and position player. Y so this upper level beth really's either in the bullpen. Or it's just like guys that are plug and play Chris gittens in aaa has a guy that has a lot of power plays first base. Not a guy. That's going to help in the outfield but I wouldn't be surprised if you see him at some point. Come up Because of an injury he's probably the most polished and ready to help contribute at the major league level on in whatever capacity to other. Da or plug and play first. Base is definitely probably the most polished bat. That's up there right now. That that you haven't seen credit karma has always been there to help you make better financial decisions.

I think that the yankees have had that they've they've Gotten through the international Pool and and just coming up the medina's of the world. There's it seems like there's a number of fireballs coming in that. are right. Handed pitchers that either could slot in as bullpen. Or if they could control if they can gather their control and actually find the plate Potentially a a starting a starting spot as well but like you said there are a little bit further away so i think we're in two thousand twenty two. We might have some competition for that. Bullpen a little bit more and then even for the back end of that rotation. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a couple of these guys. Start to make some noise after after this year so Matt really appreciate this man. This was this was a lot of fun and Yeah i'm excited. I hope that look if hicks is out for the year. If he had surgery. I fully expect. Florida will be up at some point in june you. You're right. I think they may have another guy. Slot inner out Inbetween them but once he gets them at bats underneath them in triple. I would not be surprised if he was called up sooner than later to give him an extended period of time so really appreciate the insight man and Yeah well how. How do you like somerset house. The house somerset compared to trenton. What are your thoughts. Yeah it's a it's it's really nice. I mean it's a state of the art facility It's a little bit. Newer in terms of facility than than trenton is in there doing a ton of renovations. They're building an external Like batting tunnels and whole workout area and video area so they've completely redone the bullpen. Now as a roof over it a triple a. or major league caliber bullpen would So they're just doing a ton they've put. Led lighting in all these minor league stadiums. Now have to meet a certain standard after the the realignment so there. There's a deadline for all these improvements to be made in somerset. Seems like they're blowing through them in in lightning speed. I know the guy's got a new clubhouse and a kitchen type room that i have people to seek because we're not allowed in the clubhouse or anything anymore all all access is done through zoom at this point so i haven't actually been able to get in the clubhouse and check any of that stuff out but i know the players have been super impressed with it But yeah the the the staff over in somerset is is first class. Top notch rummage. Everybody that works in that organization like somerset. Patriots became an independent affiliate back in. I believe ninety eight and a majority of the staff is still there from day one. You did minor league baseball. You get a lot of turnover. People at are seasonal or they come and go a year or two after they get their like everybody. That's there in summer. Said essentially has been therefore like from eighteen to twenty years so they're eager to show that they belong in affiliated ball and to just impress enter now that they have that yankees name associated with them. There are eager to show that. That's awesome. I know it's easier to get to. That's yeah much. I live about ten minutes from the stadium. So it's a lot easier for me logistically to get there then a forty five minute to an hour drive to trenton for me so logistically. It's a that's been the biggest biggest improvement from you personally. Awesome all right man. Appreciate matt guys if you want to follow him at keep up on the The somerset patriots. Follow me on twitter at matt cardoso's and all the the guys at pinstripe prospects. They have been doing it a long time. They do a fantastic job covering the minor league.

"They fought resilient but didn't get it done nine game win streak comes to an end the yankees lose a brutal one last thing. We're talking about the aaron judge aaron boone replay getting thrown out at third base situation. That was very very frustrating. Mets back in action tonight against the red sox at home. And you get jacob degrom tomorrow night so everybody is circling. All of those starts on their calendar again and a lot of money for sure. I mean people want a glimpse. That's what it's come down to red sox too good keeps getting better and better arts go to vinnie in brooklyn. It's happening vinnie. good morning. Hey guys good morning how you doing first off my condolences going out to the Police officer lost his life protecting the City and protecting the public. And i'm just curious now with tablet tragedy. i'm sure aaron hicks is gonna be Sitting out i guess tonight tomorrow because he's He should be terribly upset like he was a couple of weeks ago. the the events of minnesota What do you guys think. Yeah well the name of the officer. I was trying to get it before i did. Get it now. Anastasios soko's and he was forty three years old Husband father of two young children three and six who lost his life this morning on the lie. A nypd highway patrol officer in. What is just a stomach turning a turn of events so he was responding to a drunk driver that crashed into a pole and the car burst into flames. He's got to then a traffic off the so they can clean up and do the accident investigation everything that they need to do. Another drunk driving with a suspended license ends up hitting him and ultimately killing him. It's as bad of a story. It turning it's horrible. You've got two people driving drunk. A man his life a father lost his life to young kids lost their father. It is just absolutely brutal so now. I don't know how anybody's gonna respond. I will say though that moment of silence or recognition tonight at city. Field to me is is an order. This happening queens. The mets playing queens as we know this is an officer showed up. Do his job this morning trying to end and just like our caller said to protect the city to protect drivers to protect guys like us that are driving in in the morning to do our jobs and to absolute lowlifes driving drunk and he doesn't get to go home so there better be some sort of recognition. Forget about what's gone on in some of this other stuff right now. Let's think about this guy and his life. He does not represent some of the cops who have done bad things a bad apple in another state whatever that has nothing to do with this man this morning. Nothing at all and you can't conflict those two things. This is a guy who was a member of art city. He was a member of the police department. He went out there and responded to a call trying to keep people safe. And you've got these two absolute low level bottom feeding scumbags that are driving around drunk and he doesn't get a chance to go home and see his kids ever again because he's he's passed away and gets run over by a drunk driver. Well i can't say anything other than what you just said. No only to amplify it. I will say that. I knowing the new york rangers they play at home tonight against the sabres. You will get a moment of silence there for sure. And i'm sure the mets will do the same. They have to. And i believe that they will. I believe they were and i listen. You know this is what we always say about the people who put the blue uniform on you know their families never know whether or not they're going to get the call and when they get. The call is just horrific especially in a situation like this where you have two people that had no business being behind the wheel. Nagai is gonna work just trying to do his job and do it. Effectively and do it. Right divert traffic ends up getting killed. It's just it's it's mind numbing really. It's too much. yeah. I mean and we're talking about not one but two people that are out there driving drunk to make this happen about the sequence of events that had to happen this morning for this to go down and i i just. My stomach dropped when i drove by that today. I mean i've seen a lot of stuff on the road. We've all seen a lot of stuff in as we have. But you know when. It's something of very very serious. And i saw the police presence and i said you know someone who has passed away there has to have been and then when i turned on eight eighty and heard what was i just. It's just as bad as it gets and yeah you know what it does. Hit home a little bit more because drove past the scene. It is queens. It is the it's a father of young kids. Yeah it does hit home a little bit but just to think that you know there's people on the roads that our and this guy's there to protect those who are going to work going home from work the blue collar people that are working you got these two people driving drunk at midnight. And he's he's now no longer with us. And it's just it's heartbreaking. it's absolutely heartbreaking. And there's just you know we could go. We go from now until ten o'clock talking about a horrible is so so. Yeah i do believe that. The ma- mets well at the medicine. Rangers will do thing. They will percent. Well they they. They won't their friends will let them know about it. They i mean they well. They always do not even. I'm right even worried about this. Both all the organizations In this regard will always do the right thing and and try to honor the memory of an officer who just gave his life each the morning show with boomer esiason and greg boomer and geo. How many a bowls of chili did you have jerry Most of one. That's it that's it you trying to cut back on your food intake. we need. We need to cut back. Yes i understand. I understand that very much. So i i was talking to mean game. I had the the two right away. And now i'm waiting little bit create a little room and i think by nine o'clock and they bowl number. Three's going to go down. Where are you at their boomer. Just the one where we had to. Now i've had to. You've had to okay. Who eats the third one. Get ready for about ten thirty this morning. I'll talk. I've also had to take my game up. Oh yeah well. He'd likes to eat in the morning. Eddie just one or two two point. Okay jerry you're the one year in last place here with this alley. Okay you better start label in that into your bold and with good. i'd listen. I don't think the goal is to finish that That pot you can take that pot home. Strap it in your car and finish it to news. Good though yeah. I mean i will take it home no you are. You should okay i will. I mean tell gina. We're having turkey chili tonight. Breakfast dinner combination. Why not okay. Yeah jerry is here with his update. What's going on jarrett. We are brought to you by town fair tire. Nobody beats town fair tire. Nobody and for a couple of weeks. Nobody was beating the knicks last night though the sons them everything they could handle. We've heard it from mike breen and msg. This is the phoenix. I paul dribbles to his left down to four on. A timer crosses over in front of randall. Spins in front of him now fades away at the buzzer kristaps. Probe is hip. What an unbelievable shot from c. P. three falling away at the shot clock buzzer. That was sons radio with the call. He was outstanding he scored the phoenix is final. Seven pointed chris. Paul elliott twenty on the night six assists suns beat the knicks. One eighteen one ten snapping the nine game winning streak devon booker went for thirty three. And you wonder why. You get a guy like chris paul Here he was basically letting everybody know panic. Down the stretch as he's referencing deondraye eytan is kept talking about whether it's according to the side at one point just told him to control. Our emotions are a good team. We plan and they were down fifteen. I think the next shot seventy one percent. In the first quarter was outstanding. They had lead at the half but they were outscored in the second half sixty two to forty seven. My kale bridges had twenty one. Here's coach tom. Thebault no issues with the effort. His team put four love the fight. Our guys is still the gap. We gotta get one. Stop shop to you. Know converge on that rebound pop loose on us. But you know we got to take a look at the film to fix things. Yup they play the bulls tomorrow. Derek says we move on quickly have him nesia a sense of urgency when we garden play. We play next Important because it's the next game and the bulls tomorrow and then a six game road trip as well Also of note in this game. rj barrett had seventeen. He was seven for eighteen shooting. The knicks still tied with the hawks for fourth and fifth in the east because atlanta did lose to detroit last night. One hundred to eighty six new colour. Yokich twenty four points and fifteen rebounds nuggets. Beat the grizzlies. Pretty good one. Twenty two ninety six. We were checking the mvp. Odds this yeah. The current odds and randall has moved up to tied for tenth in the running. So there's been movement for sure but yokich is so far and away the favourite. It's no one's even close to him. He's like minus three fifty at this. Yes everybody else's plus money and guys. I'm talking about Randall is tied in the odds with zion. Williamson chris paul at. I wanna say it was plus thousand. That's out right. Plus fifteen thousand that right plus and. I don't know i was a crazy number. I'll just say that. So yeah there you have it. We were doing that was twenty thousand. Then it's supposed fifteen thousand. That's what it was. The bulls did beat the heat. One ten to one. Oh two lakers over the magic one. Fourteen one oh three and the raptors beat the cavaliers. Tonight twelve thousand. It's twelve thousand. Our it might not. My numbers were as of april twenty third. So they've probably moved in the last few days as they continue to win still got some guys ahead of them. I don't necessarily agree with. Like why is james harden his right late in two weeks. Why would he be on the list right. I totally agree. So it's jokic embiid curry jaanus lillard. Don church harden lebron randall. That's your top ten. I mean lebron at this point to should not be ahead of julius randle because he hasn't played in weeks you. Could you make the case at least for lebron they kind of really absolutely not play anything with hard and he just ryan played but they haven't won since he stopped playing with algebra n- but i right and anthony davis is back now. Look i think there. If you want to be the mvp you have to play the predominant number games. You're supposed to play. I if there's a seventy two game season and you're playing forty games how can you be mvp. I'm just as my point was once lebron went out. They went from one of the best teams in basketball to less than average so if he missed the whole season. They're probably a forty percent. We still this is my whole argument. Would he be the mvp while but but this whole argument about the all nba teams. Jewish renos missed one game. one game. yeah think about that. Yeah and he's the best player on his team exactly and he's gotten him to number four in the playoff spot right now. Not a top five player in the nba. Wanna wanna see where they end up. I understand that but you know what if you're talking about. A standalone season standalone performance. You know he has to get significant. i- significant votes for all nba and one of the i'm the nba thirteen at least all nba. Second team. but okay i you. Are you putting lebron on an all. Nba team you. Probably they probably are. You know i mean then. Then it's really all about reputation as a lot of it is putting harden on an nba team putting durant on an nba team. These guys are you putting pirating all. Nba team are you doing that. I'm not saying that they aren't great players and have had their moments this year. They all have and they will end up probably winning a damn championship. Because all be healthy one you know the time comes but a i'm i'm thinking i'm talking about the body of the nba season and watching is actually show up and go to work every single day and then game the knicks. How you're talking top five in the league. He doesn't rank top five in any statistical category other than showing up every single game. I can find other guys that show up every single game and put it this way. He's other guys that have double doubles in sometimes. Have a triple double. He's a top ten. Mvp candidate they tell you so that means right theories in its second or third all nba. Okay i want telling you. He's top fifteen in the nba. And that's not good enough. who right. now he's top ten according to the oddsmakers as far as mvp goes so he's even better than that and you guys in front of second or third all nba. He's not a top five player. In the i would say second all team. Nba would take that. I bet is randall. Can i think that that's fair. But i don't think he's a first team all nba player. All right. there's a different way of framing. The question is he having one of the five best seasons of any player this year as opposed to is he a top five player in a league. Because i used to compare them to themselves. I'm saying is compared to lebron. Hasn't played a ton they've recently obviously james harden. Same thing kevin durant. Those guys are of course gonna be ranked ahead of julius randle but this year with the amount that he's played the minutes that he's had and taking the knicks from total bottom feeders. All the way up to the four seed is he. Having one of the five best seasons in i would have i honestly i would have to look i i i would think maybe but i would have to look at that. I think that's where boomers point is sort of. It's a it's debatable. shove it. He's smart thanks to her. He's played sixty one games. And he's he's averaging almost thirty eight minutes a game i understand. I don't know that to me. That's one pal stuff guy. Putting a hard hat on taking a lunch pail the work making you know twenty five home. Still lunch pail work. Do you really think. I give a goddamn just waiting for the playoffs. All this stuff for you guys is just nothing about leading leading up to the point i get so angry with. Don't understand you at this like you're you seem like legit mad and you've got to go right to the nets and i don't understand why you know why because the knicks or relevant. That's why come on it. I think you're were more of an asset. No i'm just kidding. The fact that the knicks are relevant. And they i class night they were right there with one of the best teams in the league and then of course you're right. Jerry is one of the top. Five players link took over the game. Are you wanna know why. Nixon nets fan. You tell me if you guys agree with this why nixon nets fans are annoyed with the season even know both teams are having success. The knicks are having the best year. They've had in years and they're doing it with defense likable hardworking likable likable grope blunt. The odds of them winning a championship as compared to the brooklyn nets. You can't even talk about it. So that's annoying that you're having this great season still the nets. They're doing a completely different way and have a better chance of winning championship but then nets fans are a little bit annoyed. Because here they are is the teen. That's a favorite to win the championship. But the knicks have a bigger more vocal and sometimes obnoxious fan base. I will admit are crowing and talking about their team. Because they're finally good for the first time so. The nets can't enjoy kazan near face. The knick fan base is a hundred times bigger than that's fan base. Two things are happening every day. And that's more like we said that's seemed to be more of a national story than they are local story. But this is. I'm trying to explain why. I think you're getting you get all pissed off about it because you like just like read kevin durant james looney play in my guys out there. He's playing all these minutes he should be in all nba guy. Not these guys mailing it in. That's where you're coming from Thank you okay. Couldn't assume really gives a crack. Did you get the point or didn't you. Wow what he needed a point in his ass. Jerry you're mike zahn did you know that. Ross what you're saying. Just tell that The talk back. Daddy and al. But i do know what i was saying. That was on. the back. didn't work. Because i'm on the comrex. So i hit the talk back. I'm still live on the air jerry. nets raptors tonight in tampa on. New york's country ninety four seven fm w. n. s. h. and streaming at w. n. s. h. dot com the nets in the country station. Good inserts snarky comment. Good going to station in the company. I love country station. The knicks put them on a country station. They've got offense. Let's on a country station interesting. Boomer and preservation heavy orioles beat the yankees last night. Four to Play in this Here's aaron boone. Talking about the whole replay situation in the eighth inning didn't go well for them he says usually we're on at this time. We weren't usually. I have a good rhythm where i look with mandy and i'm holding them off. Apparently he said something. And then when i went to turn and challenge it was too late. It was too late now. I did notice one of the guys on twitter. I think it was joe on twitter. Mention the fact that the joe rules well. I was not aware of this. And i'm giving him credit for pointing it out. Since joey from yonkers i believe is that this is what we saw the same narrow. How does he know everything. Yeah well. I don't know. But i did check what to say. What he he posted that after twenty twenty they changed the replay review limit to challenge from thirty seconds to twenty. So i went to the baseball rules and that is indeed the case. They took ten seconds off the challenge. Time okay so is anybody actually keeping track of that. I have no. That's the question. Is the umpire going one. Mississippi two mississippi. That's what i wanna know arbitrarily. Go not too late. Sorry don't know college basketball and dribbling the ball up. You see the referee putting his hands up like this one. Sure somebody doing that. I don't believe that there is by the way joy. Mississippi two mississippi lissette Jock itch our jock itch of denver. Jock itch jock itch. As the guy that i would consider as mvp gangrene fungus. So joey from yonkers breezy knows everything is that he is just a die. Hard sports fan. Who is locked in to the things that he loves and this radio station and he listens all day long and he watches sports all night. Long and gamble that into a hollow. You've got to be some sort of special loser. calm down. and then he also if anything happens he puts it into google and he's sitting around the computer and listen all day days. There's got an answer for everything on the warm up show. He's constantly feeding information then. I don't know like he's on everything he is no. He's great issue. Team chris. paul was on this morning. Oh come on you serious. John king type just did say jerry. Well who's even on the phoenix grand through a list of guys that i even knew you go just kid. Joey's joe is an all time remain. Joey's been to a bunch of wfan events. We've hung out him in john. Glen cove reclose close to john. Glen cove was he. The one that had the The glasses on his head. The the drinking glass helmet radio the helmet radio and he was out there washing job in and goes car one day. Yes on provoke. I'd do remember that radio station from his cell phone while he was washing. Joe's car is that it a buffalo wild wings by h. He went to all those events but that was just outside the story like he just found. Joe's car was and he brought a bucket soap and a sponge and was washing his car and like not like as a bit like he just. He wanted to do that for joe because he was a crazy person. Still is a crazy person but in a good way you know. Big heart and jonah 'glocal matt harvey got the wind last night. Six innings three hit ball. He was thrilled with everything. Was working well at mechanically felt good felt strong throughout whole out with the laws yankees nine and thirteen. Dj la make. You says yeah. We'll tough start to the year. Yeah i mean that's you know it's frustrating. It's extremely frustrating That's really all i can say about it. You know we're all frustrated. And tonight you got. Cory kluber and bruce zimmerman yankee baseball on the fan after carton and roberts at six twenty five minutes red sox tonight at city field david peterson garrett richards. The starters there is there anything that shohei ohtani does not do. Well we know he pitches. We know he hits home runs we play. Rbi double two run double. Here's another thing. What are you guys like to see when teams shift in baseball. Bunting i present to you shohei. Ohtani anne was bonding there with that shift on and he drops it onto the third base side and just got one hit. Wow unbelievable we're watching from him. Why fundamentals spot where they ain't. Yeah that's exactly does that he Last night he threw five innings. He got the win. He had to run double. He had a bunt base hit. And so all good for show. Ninety nine strikeouts to. That's exactly right in five innings. Angels beat the rangers nine. Four mike trout. Four five drove in a couple there and the yankees just got finished with the indians. One of the fun names on the indians is jordan. Loop slow well. He had a game winning homer. Last night is hurt by tom. Hamilton now the one one swung on ahead. Hi hit the to laugh. Lintas back still going back and it is gone game winning. Walk off two run home. Run for jordan flow. Tom hamilton indians radio. I love him. That's where i like to play him. They won five three. They beat the twins intended things and the braves knocked off the cubs. Eight seven freddie freeman. Go ahead three run homer there before we get out. I give you this. One baker mayfield spoke to the media video conference yesterday and one. He was talking about his belief in. Ufo's and sasquatch is. yeah whatever that is And he was referencing the night he saw a ufo With his wife in the car was looking for phone. Run passenger seat and nighttime so when you're looking at your phone extreme it's everything's dark around votes the light. It was bright enough to work. It caught her attention to gotta slipped at each other like. Did you just see them. And so he is bought in hook line and sinker. now that also doesn't mean aliens it means a ufo but he is all in on that. No doubt is a russian missile or something. Where where do you guys stand on bigfoot or possible anybody in one video was so unbelievably convincing the seventies. And i saw a whole special on that you could see the muscle stri asians in the leg of that big foot in the way that it walked on a beef jerky commercial. It'd be this. We're talking about the the famous original original video and so that we've never found the dead body of sask. Well that's true. I know and their lovers and not killers. Loch ness monster are more of a loch ness monster or you see. I don't think so much. Yeah i think that's fugazy if we're talking about an unidentified seven foot beast. I think it's possible. Yeah i do too. I mean that brunswick vice for that's not identified seven footer of sports radio. Lolo we gotta be somewhere right that whole thing. We've played that before that all right so somebody had to go get liners when the knicks were still on our station. And frederick vice. Of course just coming over from france and he was reading someone's hand written. I'm frederick vice. And you're listening to sports radio sixty six. Wfan new york any read the two sixes as l. o. l. o. And it was a famous thing. Is you know. I'm fredrick vice and you're listening to sports radio lolo. Wfan it just be like him becoming the horrible player in which he was never play it. Just yeah right. Ended the biggest boston. Knicks history Getting dunked on everything else. I mean it turned out to be even funnier because you like this guy is just completely incompetent and everything. There's your big foot. yeah there. there is your Your bigfoot i suppose so and the niners of course have a chance to make big pick number three this week and kyle shanahan asked if jimmy. Gop on the roster after the draft. I can't guarantee that anybody in the world will be alive sunday. So so who cares out. That was a little extreme. He's not wrong. I mean you can't guarantee that but that's a little extreme for sure. Nhl tonight rangers take on the sabers islanders in washington and the devils. We'll try not to lose again as they play the flyers so i thought it might be but i wasn't sure and then i got a text confirming it. It was sweeny murdy. He was at the sydney olympics. And he's the one who wrote down sports radio sixty six. It was sweeney's an writing for the frederick vice liner which goes down and wfan history. Obviously i mean sweeney's listening right now and he's he's texting me about it. Just one of those famous pieces of audio that we send sweeney to the australian olympic. Things have changed right running. He doesn't go to yankee road. Believe that's how we gotta find an how i gotta i gotta hear that whole thing is just that is diligently searching. He's going nuts. he's going through all sorts of old computer drive. We've i know we have because we've played it. I might have saved it in even in my folder. Let's see i gotta go here local. I gotta get this before we go to a break now. Because it's on my head and i have to get. It's like that thing where you can't find the answer to something he ever play for the next little bit. Then you get it was. I don't remember him ever playing to the neck. If you type in all right. I can't play off of his basketball. My people folder and search w. e. i s. any em drive my folder than search folder w. e. s. frederick vice liner comes up. So you should be able to get it there. I told me he never played a game he ever came over. That was the thing they draft drew and he never came here and and so i don't know why he never played for the next damn sweeney says he's texts migos vice said to what's lolo. I said no sixty six i said. Do you wanna do it again. Then i said to myself no. It's better this way. It's a radio guy right there. G-get it is it in some folder type in just type in search go to the search bar and type in w. eis. it should. Just be in there. I don't think it's an. I didn't even do some fuller's just search results in saudi and it should be there all right. I think he's got what a spiderweb of some folder holders idaho folders and yet he found your box on this morning in two seconds. Yes i don't know how this is an old one. All right i could. Just you know what i could probably go in there and a break and tell you come out of the with it and then make keep await. It'd be a nice tease. Oh man that. That was one of the all-time alzheimer's not alzheimer all right. We'll we'll take the break. Said he's gonna find the next five seconds innovation resilience agility. It's how michigan businesses worked together and continue to build the future our expertise talented workforce and collaborative environment are making a difference. Now and shaping the future. Join us and make your mark where it matters. Visit michigan business dot org slash radio to put your plans in motion. That's michigan business dot org slash radio the morning show with boomer esiason gregg giannotti boomer and geo we had to pay this off. We somehow got on a frederick vice conversation. And i brought up the liner. That frederick vice recorded for sweeney murdy in sydney. No less for the olympics and sweeney was there covering the olympics for wfan. He runs into frederick vice who the knicks had just drafted he figures. Let me get a liner. It's just great. Sweeney murdy radio thinking let me get a liner for steve somers. Somers liner from frederick vice. So sweeney scribbled on a piece of paper and frederick vice mistook the sixty six for something else. Hi this device. And i love listening to some us on the fan. Sports radio lulu w. s. h. New york off to a good start. La frederick vice. An alzheimer various sought what. There's so much about that clip. That's phenomenal one. Eight i love listening to steve. Somers and steve is still working. Frederick vice obviously saying low low is the clip also the fact that we send sweeney murdy the radio station since sweeney murdy to australia to cover the olympics and aptly pointed out. He doesn't even go to boston anymore. And i get why this day and age digital. Unless he drives himself and know someone in boston he can stay on a couch somewhere. Lolo tie face. And i love listening to not some us on the fan. Sports radio lulu w. f. a. n. new york. Why yeah very good. By the way i did talk to summer's on friday for a good deal. We saw stevie came by salo. You saw him for about thirty five seconds. I i sat and talked. Yeah oh i didn't know you just were in and out of the blue right pines friday just like hey good to see great. I sat there. And i talked to him for a while. It was great. It was good talking to them. And then eddie and steve have their own language. I don't even know what you guys say back and forth to each other. I'm not even privy to this. But you do have like these abbott and costello routine two years. And i'm like wow. It was good to see it really was and i mean that and hopefully he gets in here and starts doing shows again because it's not the same for him you know. He wants to be back in the studio doing shows come back in accelerated yet. I don't know if he's allowed yet but he would think that he'd be vaccinated. You would think think you've wanted to first right. Get vaccinated debate like the guy on tv in the first shot in the highest of risks. One isn't Okay co morbidity want. Let's go to mike in new rochelle. What's up mike. But morning guy. Good morning good morning. Geo mike man. I'm a little little mad bro. I work i work nights seven to seven and i come home and i caught the back end of be compensation about the mvp. Come on man you know every year. It's the same guy over and over and over. come on you know joke. You know he's gonna win. You know throw a couple of guys in the top five at another been there. You know booker randall. Come on you think. Leonard or or George or westbrook these guys rated over him because of their names what they've done in the past. This guy's been there every day. Maybe one player on the nets has season. Then randall now to keep a quick. I'm going to ask you a question. I'm going to break out. 'cause i'm dead tired but boomer i got your back. People get paid to play not play two days. And then i'm gonna take off three days more day day and then you know in those four games i could score thirty points and that means i averaged thirty points. What does he know show up every day. We have regained being then. Quick question before i go if i can. Head coach of the nets nash. Head coach of the knicks. Tell me their record and what they're looking like right now. Thank you guys. Think no matter who's coaching. That's going to be good a discount. What steve nash has got deal with and it's his first year as a head coach. He's got an all star team. Sure and they add it all source to the team. You remember lamarcus. Aldridge was on this team for about three days. Yeah which was amazing and unfortunately he had to retire but for jewish renos concerned with the last caller is pointing. Out is what i appreciate. The most he shows up every game he plays defense. He plays off and he elevates the level of his team to me that that is a serious candidate from vp nine. Oh he's not going to get it because there are other players that have had phenomenal seasons as well and their teams are at the top of their respective conferences. I get all that as i was saying earlier. Not allowed to get it. But i do get it. You get all right. I do get all of that but for us here. That are knick fans and have dealt with the last twenty years of just absolute slop and mismanagement and bad coaching and bad players and lazy players. Employers that didn't play defense. That's why this team is really a likeable team for all of us in the back that really they added. Derrick rose to the mix was a nice ad a good ad when they got him. He's he's tur- totally different player than he was when he was here. Last time seem so much more mature. Seems like he's brought a level of consistency and professionalism to the team and they're playing it all through julius randle. I don't care what anybody says. The fact he's played every game the fact that he plays defense in the fact that he is averaging almost thirty eight minutes. A a game tells me all. I need to know about where he is in the list of great players in the season and he's right there at the top of it he has sure i mean. I think there's a couple of guys ahead of him. They're really have no business being there. This particular season now. Obviously lebron james in every other season is going to be right there. Obviously guys like james harden would be right there in any other season but the fact that they've missed some time no is a big deal but also i think you know a guy like chris. Paul i understand devon booker been great but look at what chris. Paul did to that team. I mean they were not even a factor in the western conference and now all of a sudden now one of the best teams out there in the regular season however sure so when we see what happens when we get to the playoffs a whole nother different set of circumstances. And that's why brooklyn all these players being held out for one thing and sean marks knows it and it's it's get to the playoffs They're going to expand the by the way governor. Cuomo's just expanded the ability to have more fans at at these states. Let me ask you so great to see up to thirty three percent right but tell me why a casino inside gets fifty percent so again a casino yes which is indoors right that increased to fifty percent okay but the stadium's outdoors increased only from twenty to thirty three percent. And he was talking to you. My ear about office buildings. What did you say i heard. That's up to seventy five percent okay. How many people we got here. Maybe seventy five total seven stations and all shifts. Anybody ever coming back to one man. I told you. Get pods of salespeople like dolphins. They'll come by all going to sit home on our ass and say that we could do a better job doing that. So funny i've been back. You know what three weeks. I think it is walking around going. What's going on in the ultimate tough guy. Now you're here jeeze. I hear sal on the air. I'm like he's by himself. He kick them in the studio. Yeah what the hell's going on. What does that all bad. Everybody get in here and offer this maggie most waiting for i guess the go ahead. What what gio was borough does. He really wanted me to come in. I wanna see everybody. Everybody get get their ass back in. Let's go do you know if that was boos at a bit or a bit. That's r- want in or come. I like mark said boomer said do do you think i should come in or is that a. It's about time it's about time. Plus everyone's missing out on like we get chilly. Cake cake and craig smashing with fast. Go mass maggie coulda had some of that. Yup sure why they're not here was i know. It's not their fault i do. I don't believe it's there. I think it's a company it is. I think they probably want to come in. At this point. I would think at this point abundance of caution stop. Stop already with this already nonsense. Let's go although summer is coming though so i don't know if they want moves. His house looks like total chaos with those kids. So i'm sure he wants. They're like swinging swords around. There were in helmets. Those maluso boys. Oh they're rough. They are rough house. S very rough house. Kids mean moose and maggie have not been together for how long now Over a year year and two months raising a part of this conversation wild. I don't get it. Let's flesh bags less than a month. But then again but then again look where alan eddy are. Come on and what's weird is i. I really resume. I did not want to come back. Truthfully like you know you work from home it but i will. I was the greatest decision. I made to come back feels different. It feels better time at the end. Yeah it was starting to melt down at the end there. Yeah does feel normal to come back to work even though you have commutes and all those things it still feels like you're coming and doing something separate your time from home. You can't be home all day long. There's an energy to with the show and being here and the lights in the in. The monitor manager like one inch away from an umpire last night screaming at each other without masks on. Yeah all right. Great i mean i. It's the the idiocy of all of it just does not make any sense. I've one thing can do one. Group of people could do one thing. Another group of people don't want to go to work and other other people do mean what what are we doing. Yeah i don. I don't know and by the way we've ruined the junior and senior classes of last year and this year that that group of kids basically. I've gotten screwed totally mismanagement. I know i've heard this. I know years i'm just. I'm just letting you like t- kettle. I'm ready to go just absolutely explode. Have another bowl of chili. I made do have that just makes me feel good. Feel good food right it is. It's comfort food. It is although boomers pumping him out in the last hour so walking around you can't even take a step without releasing a little not true just one is reminder. We go to break. He's like hey. This is where you send your scrap metal odyssey sports minute brought to you by local ford snores. I'll be right back as what's going on. The survey knows behind the scenes. Got an order. Sportsman over there Do the morning show with boomer. Esiason gregg giannotti boomer and geo.

Episode 242: Any Kind Of Offense Would Be Nice

"Six time to one the goodness your walk just happens you sent the day. What's what's happening. Welcome to the shore board presented by brussels sports. I'm your host ups on the other side of the internet my coast. Tommy smokes tomsk belly. Mardi mush tj. On the ones and twos we are one weekend into the twenty. Twenty one yankee season Could be feeling better. Certainly be better. We'll get into every every bit and piece of it The quick story is can't hit which is a problem we can pitch was as good needed. Do both those to win. Games and more importantly the world series So yeah i mean. We're definitely going to be feeling great. Tommy's probably cancelled half the team already. Cut them in his mind. The i'm a little bit more relaxed. And but i'm certainly fed up with a few things. Mush probably shooting from the hip and away. We go first. How doing fills happy easter opry. Ister one of the. I mean this might be a high the worst holidays not just at the like the meaning of it like he is risen and like the whole jesus resurrection thing. I mean that's the disciples were just like crazy high and imagine he came back from the dead and that's basically just. Let's let's have this. Debate is is christianity real novel. Start off. I know i was saying today like it's crazy that there's no rhyme or reason to easter it's like every other holiday. It makes sense. Like that. Rico tweets you which was just raw rodney. Didn't rico tweet at you like you idiot. Like easter's april fourth every year and it's just not bitty does always it. I mean i love it. I honestly didn't even see that does a bit like every year is birthdays on the day. It is this year. He does all the time. I know i didn't even see that. That's the first full moon or something after spring like there's gotta be a better system to figure that out. Jesus my mom's coming down her daddy. I'm gonna clear holiday. My mom said it's on her birthday next year. That's april sixteen. How could it be twelve days apart from your the. I don't know if that's true but whatever. Yeah that's just crazy to me. Also much we talk about this. I just saw rico's too much. We've talked about it. There's no like no one knows. Like when jesus died a second time no one talks about that. He's still alive. Apparently died forty days later. Who jesus the second time. That was a short-lived second stint just did nothing. He came back with no plants. Starting this off of the religion. That's the yankees weekend. Didn't go great other debate. Jesus's resurrection anki baseball. That's not a good son. A lot of ways we can start here. I it was nice to just have yankees baseball back. I mean obviously friday the off day which is built every year which is dumb. But it's also i get the point of it just sucks just. Have you wait all off season baseball. You get an opening day and then it's taken away from you. I just hate off this general. Because i like to build on a plan every day being a day game so of that i like a game sprinkled in. I love yankees baseball. You stadium at night. So that that kind of stunk. Especially saturday and sunday back to back games. I actually liked the like saturday sunday afternoon. Games those are some of the best sitting down. Relax on like a saturday afternoon. And having at one o'clock sunny sky game i i was happy to have with the players like that. The players hate it. Because you don't ever you don't get bp every day you can't yeah. I mean that's always how it is it is worthy enke's are like i don't know how it will be this year but i know for a while there was a stretch with ink is were the only team that played one pm home games on saturday. Weird they are usually the solo team. You kinda right up six thirty and it just wasn't a great weekend baseball. No so we'll start. With the bad and probably sprinkling good then go back to the bad but so the the no one can hit. There was three guys you put up. Good at-bats this weekend. Gary sanchez continues. I think even the outs looking look encouraging like he's working full counts here adjustments to homer on sunday off the was on a hanging curve ball. I bet he wants to swing back. I it was a shallow mid left field. Should have been two run homer But the the at bats are good. He you a homer. Get on saturday. Which was nice to get the offense going Gary was good. I thought clinton every bad is good. He's all excited for full season. Clint frazier he's everything. He is just awesome baseball player. Awesome personality. I'm so happy. He's part of this team. He's the only reason. I scored a run that you factor that himself. I really like what will let's say he plays because obviously do as fucking ridiculous wresting. Let's say he starts at one hundred forty five games i will. I like him really curious. What will a full season stat line for. Him look like things. Batting average is going to hang around his his batting average hover. Around three hundred. I think he's that good of a hitter. A to nine hundred twenty five homers eighty five. That would be absolutely. I'm getting the feeling though with him in the nine hole that it's not going to stick around for much longer. I think he's too good to hit nine on the team. You know like when glacier was nine all that one year and it was like ok cool. We have the best nine here in baseball. He could've hit higher like for. Every i have a feeling he'll be moved moving up in a more consistent matter. Maybe like that top of the order. Maybe things differently the number three spot. Yeah i think we're gonna get into the number three spot and a little bit but that's a spot that i would love to see him because he's just so refreshing and that bloop over the first patients head today that seemingly if you like a lot of ball hitting that area all weekend for both teams it was just like a weird specially on saturday with some of the yankees relievers. But did you think this is a little off topic. But i did want to bring this up saturday. When lewke came in the double he gave up aaron judge. That was the laziest effort. I've ever seen to a fly ball in my life. How did he not like that easily. Could have been caught easily like they never showed a replay of that but he like walked over to it. Like i was leuke my first major league appearance in six years. It'd be like hey buddy. How about we fucking also little bit right. They're like no. I saw a few people on twitter talking about it but that was didn't matter but that was weird. They're all blurring together. Because there were a lot of looking saturday specifically so but like i dunno. I think he had to come a long way. But i'll take your word for it. a judge had a weird weekend. All around. We'll get into that but back to clint liking of double. I can only imagine how gardner was watching that. Because it's like gardner whole careers would made out of hitting balls hundred feet and turning them into doubles and triples out of nowhere. Good for clinton really you know. He gets the third as well and then To home on the sacked fly ground ball was an awesome play. It was an awesome weekend. He was ripping the cover off the ball saturday as well. That's the only thing we can talk about today. Yeah thanks mike. Mike king like. That's what matz might kings career. He gets put in shitty situations and then when he does six innings no run. It's still lost three one right. Yeah i i guess. We'll we'll talk by king real quick usually though in this type of situation for him he has one bed in it where it just all falls party like. He was really good except for that one inning so he finally just dominant today and as it gets a good lineup gives a one hit a little trouble in that first inning with the bases loaded gets out of it. Gets four outs inning. No thanks to that you know gary had a interference call on him. But he was rock-solid kept t minutes ashamed comes in a losing effort like mardi but him to go six innings saves the bullpen also saves himself. Think curry brought this up in the post game. How let's say he goes three innings right and they have to use other believers three more innings. He's probably sent down tomorrow and they lose for ten days because they need to bring more guys up He just went to six innings. He can kind of just take a few days off. They can just use the guys in use today and they'll be five next for the next series. The made off the thursday everything will reset but yeah he was good all around. He had four really good pitcher stays. Change was awesome to seamer. It's very nice to look at very kind of not cooper s. But you know he. He tries to be kluber. I guess but yeah king was great. I was really happy form Great start the season for him and yet one of the very few Bright spots of this weekend. It wasn't pretty for my hang. I know people. Can you know after today. You have hope know what i'm saying. I feel like this season. He wasn't great and spring training. He wasn't the best like people like. Oh this guy he's never going to be anything or whatever like i still think that. I don't know if it will happen this year if he got the chance to be a starter consistently for a ten game stretch. I think you've figured out. I really think he'd be like a solid back into the rotation guy but he's doing what he can right now. Well really big of you though to say that after six innings i didn't mean that like i meant in general like i feel like people coming into today. We're mostly down king like in general like he didn't. He wasn't very good in spring training to look like because he usually gets in those shitty situations and hope like three innings great and then all of a sudden he lets up four roads capable off today. Flaherty was common himself over canada. He was like we need a guy coming up. he's got to be the guy he sees. He's seen enough. He wants king like in the rotation at this point. So i mean we're king guys always have been at least like he's he's very good to us and very happy for him today now. The bad i've one more good okay. Let's say just there are a little more yet. Go johnny lasagna. I'm off the a wetness year. Said this like a month ago like he just keep them in the bullpen. I don't want him opening. i don't want them start when there's a rain out when there's a seven inning doubleheader gave him in the bullpen as a middle reliever late any weapon and he is going to be filthy. Yup mardi we talked about it on the stream. And i think we brought up the last show where when he had that change. We all look at a guy who the hell is. This guy recently comes in. He's unbelievable right now and that really that continued on saturday came in as well. Change looks at various like it's very canley asked. It's got some bugs buzzing bunny stuff to he throws heat. I mean he just has so many weapons and if you put you like he should be dominance with the stuff he has. Maybe it's time just an mike. Tommy said keep him consistent. Yellow sonya was was big time and like. It's so funny what a guy could do in two outings. And i'm like i want. I can't wait to see him. Picks next and i don't think i've really ever had that feeling short of when he first debuted and you could see what he's capable of but like very inconsistent now probably you know he'll pitch tomorrow against the orioles. Gilbert amelio stephen. But let's hope that doesn't apple. Let's hope he just keeps keeps out there because that man that's a weapon out there that we desperately need with the losing a britain for few months year and canley gone. Vino in boston Day did you just take a sip wine. Yeah what's the what's the problem. Just wind driven watt sunday. Lhasa read right now. It's actually white a white. Oh oh excuse your back that you that. Look as red as i was gonna say. Tj we need to get like colorblind issue. I'm getting slim on. You just can't do that. And not expect us to make a comment about that just casually sipa glass of last align for the for jesus. Apparently he rose today. I feel like tj just like drinks juice boxes all time. kool aid. Nothing like a good sips juice box growing up childhood boxes were the hugs huggies. They're like they're like little barrels. Anyway you're talking about. I don't know nobles are the best but those are the purple one was fire like hulu. Jammers and capri suns hugs juice. Yeah these you say oh yeah okay but sips we're sips. Is my tea me. Think i have it right. I think it was sips. Sipsa i believe is outspoken. Oh ice tea. Yeah that was. I would drink water. Cavities younger because probably soups. We have a little more good. So squeezing out the good here you know weekend before he gets that we'll get a and we'll get to the bad of course as well talk about our friends at bare-bottom their arm clothing spring. Break eight year. But i remember you guys and much. This is does not help my case of being like i just don't live life throw away. I'm so bad at reading the weather app and figure it happened again today and it just i can't control it but i i see the weather and i can't process in my head. Actually what the temperature's outside and. I just put on clothes today. I'm coming home to jersey. It says like sixty degrees but like you said like fifty seven degrees. That's kind of chilly still to me. So i had a hoodie on and and and a mini jackie to like a. I can't think of the word of the jacket.

I can't figure it out But i need to start figuring it out especially spring break because i'm going to break and bear bomb clothing offspring into summer Can't wait probably to soak up the sun long winter.

Long i mean the yankees pitching in general with was good. I mean they gave up nine runs. Total the three runs each games with the toronto blue jays lineup. Sure they never george springer but they're still bobishenko bid yoke glad girl. They got guys rich. They have really good. Hit still not just you know. Obviously spring make them even better but they have very good hitters that fucking rowdy till got effect guy just destroys us ninety nine out of the yankees held the three runs in each game. I mean that people were screaming about biggest question. We're going this is pitching you come away. That's the reason. I feel good about this weekend. If you're gonna feel good it's that it wasn't that we got shelled pitching wise and lost games nine one you know. The pitching showed up. And the pitching is really. What's gonna be make or break for this team. I think the hidden could be totally fine. There's enough really really good hitter team. That will that will be. Just fine is a bad weekend it happens. Hopefully get things going against the orioles but the pitching was really good. The bullpen was awesome chatrooms electric when he came in on saturday the day off today with lasagna. Which is what made kings outing so important Lucas lookie debuted on saturday. He did give up a run. And tommy mentioned it was like that blue and was soft. Contact knock putting against their good to see him out. There had pitched it since fifteen. Who else we got nick. Nelson was good. Darren o'day as cool as he is. He gives me a fucking heart attack anytime being all over. You were accurate but like it scared. Still like that's stressful. Like is going to be there but yeah the pitching kluber. I thought i mean the final line obviously only goes four innings but i thought he was good his first two innings were awesome and i think it was a strikeout. Maybe the second or third out of the game like a nasty slider end the first sitting. Yeah i was like he is back like corey. Kluber be like corey. Kluber might win the cy young and this year like it'll take a while maybe for him to like the fact that his stuff was good is more important like what thirty six innings the past two seasons. So no he's pitched one inning inducing producers. No no no. It was one inning last year in like thirty five in two thousand nineteen. Oh i thought he sat out all twenty okay. Whatever it's barely barely pitched right so like knowing the stuff is still there like yeah. We can't expect him to come back after pitching that little and be going seven deep right off the bat but the fact like the stuff is still there gives me confidence that as the season goes on like kill he'll build back up his Stamina and like think he'll be a solid start. It was nice seeing that was competent. A little scared. Obviously we all didn't know how he was gonna be spring training And it was like you know. I like you said i soothing. Beautiful to see. We have a second pitcher. That can actually do something. I mean. you didn't end up good today to mingo but that first inning. I was like oh my god i was like i forgot how good me hormone is and he. He fell apart a little bit but he he also is another guy. Where it's like the stuff. Is there doing mingo pitch. Yeah for sure back to kluber. A breaking ball was excellent. The fastball isn't going to be ninety six miles an hour anyone. That's expecting that. I really don't see that ever happening again. We he can live at ninety two and be and be good like you can just be more in control. He had a wild than he ends up with. Three walks in the in the in the four innings gets five strikeouts though and the strike s looked really good. When he had control his breaking ball was like nasty shit and he's got the good to seamer. He's gonna be just fine as long as he stays healthy. He's going to get more control more companion as he gets back in the groove of things. But i was i was encouraged by the kluber start. No doubt you'd like it to be a little longer up to five hundred six innings. But i'll take the debut and let's move on to start number two on. Her mom was inefficient after that first inning. A little alarming that he didn't get one swing and miss on a basketball. I think he threw twenty five of them and they were four base. Hits off of them not great but the breaking ball was really good. Curveball was awesome. I in really weird. That he threw the same pitches as king. David and king went six innings one hit and bingo in three innings. Just shows you how efficient king was but domingo was good overall. I think it's pretty obvious how you ranked at three starters that have pitched coal number one number two number three. I don't think there's any arguments there. Good overall pitching and bullpen. I'll take you all that. That offense at offense as good as capable abilities for seventy eight runs a game. No problem helmet three runs. Each game should have won every single game. If you hold the few told me. Hey we held jas three runs every game. I assume the yankees won the series easily. Three games they just didn't fucking hit and that's the bad which we're gonna get right now. It wasn't good aaron judge. I don't wanna say he lost them the series but like he might like lost in this series he definitely might have everything kept coming up and he came up in big moment after big moment. I felt like at least on saturday. Just his best. Aaron hicks helped as well a lifeless at bass from him at least judge. Judge alito. chew it's to its on saturday. He hit the ball hard today to start the game. Just right at the second baseman. Were you made. It is play on it. So i guess he could hit their aaron. Heck's never really came close to doing anything you know. It was the first time they said he's ever struck out three times in back to back games in his career. That's stunning does way. More after one squeezing three straight at bats strike no no no just two games in a row where struck out three times you know. That's a little shocking. Yeah i mean offense was bad. Like i guess yeah. Obviously we're not gonna fuck in. Burn everything down right now. I will say people who are like. Oh it's three games. How can you do this. It's not really three game like it's the same team. It's been for the past four years so like i don't know why people are like. Oh you can't make judgments three games three games. It's five hundred games like basically this line like. It's the same team last year. Pretty much the same team near before in the year before that like what kind of right. It's well kind of. I mean same but it is the same it. It is the jay. Bruce is the only difference. Neighbors has no chance to the police. Hit a bloop the head of the year so far. Okay i mean he fisted that ball barely over the yankees need more. They need more pieces heading like all his birthday was his birthday. Wish baseball player in america. And i can't believe he's ever in the line and today today to li-listen a monday sunday error tough error because it wasn't the best throw obviously and you can tell i also i'm starting to now hate this. Any ball. hits him. I get the ball out. Okay good line drive okay. Good kinda tell something bad was happening. There g bruce needs to not set himself on the bag that early. His foot is Was closer to the outfield. And the fuel. He didn't give himself a full stretch. Easily could have had that baseball told to do like. I literally like he's strikes before the ball was coming so he was planted that fucking fellow the opposite of my guerrero junior loves take dragon. That foot off the bag on the bag at all. Vlad is too short to like on the bag. Though he is such a little short stubby legs. He's no chance he that guy. He's a menace of the plate and the ball. The homer hit today. I mean you just can't fuck fastball. But zone like that. He will be entire career like he can't plan to feel like they need to realize that very soon he's not a first baseman. He's gonna lose them. More plays games at first base. Would it at any position will he. May maybe thirty more But he's a d. h. forever but Lose the more for sure. yeah yeah. Shortstop wouldn't be great You'll ride. I said it would be great. I i mean at first compared to d. h. He knows way. More there We achievers just not good. I know they have really no plans to give a chance. At first it seems like dj's the backup first baseman. But i'd love to see talk and get a chance at first base because it can't be worse than this. He's a good field of the start. And i want to see what he can do it. I trust talk about more than shapers. No question with ford switch him. I mean that's the pro. It's like don't don't put talking there just because like we need to put the guy. Mike's foolish i say i love. I like mike ford. Let's not pretend. Like he's lost the series. Because of jay. Bruce like jay bruce was he's just part of the problem part of the lifeless nece. I i missed void where it's like. Oh how like. Yeah if this was a three game series in june. Yeah we're probably not reacting this and obviously it's under more of a microscope Because the first three games of the season. But it's definitely it's the same shit every year like they're also count exactly like the aug. Just say that. Like people like april. Like i don't know man you lose you lose these games in august. It's an count the exact same so long set one out of one divided by one sixty two number number. That is like i mean. They'll win like i'm not worried that no good this year. They'll win ninety five games but it's still is. It's the same offense that like in october. I'm not gonna feel like they're. They are their approach at the plate. Just the way they're designed. I think is fundamentally flawed. They're going to hit home runs and if they don't hit home runs they're not with arjun scoring position they strike out too much and it's just the same thing ever here and i'm just i'm just tired of what has changed from last year. Despite of confusion version gonna play my which will be a health for her. Like and he i think he is way more on the digi. Lemay who side of approaching hitting than the aaron. Judge stanton cider vinegar. I think he's going to hit for average higher contacts. Just a better geo and clint. Those are the three is up there where it's like. They should be part of the conversation once he gets going he he will. He's in the middle but everyone else Let's see now now. Voids kind of more strike. Voids void isn't all the way though. I think strikes out he strikes out but he hits for higher average and i trusted more than the. It's it's two extremes and he's probably like he's labor yeah kind of like probably still a little further towards the judge stanton side but overall i agree with you like that's the cost were concern is the what's this is. We're just doing this again. Like hoping it works. Better in june the yankees will hit seven. Home runs in a game against the orioles or something. And we'll be like this. Offense is mashing best offense in baseball. And then in october when they're facing lucas giolito or or someone in the playoffs like they're not gonna be able to string heads together so i like they just have a bunch of righty power. Headers and aaron hicks. Who sucks i agree even we. We said that our shell is like a average guy but average here but like he sucked this the week to. It wasn't great but he had to call one. Eighty wasn't great. Gio shelhah yes. Yeah and have a great great great. I did you realize how taty homered in the first thing today or not. They're looking at batting average. Is this early but she go. Sit in two fifty. Sure eighty two. What is the score mobile app. Broken may have not updated for tonight. Yeah that's exactly what happened. You think it's just looking at staff. I mean that's not on me. The score mobile app is usually as reliable as it gets one eighty two to three games. Well that i care most window. I can't use this i i can't rely on. That's the first thing. I tried yahoo. Pretty good for though really do so. Would you just stats. I can't trust the mlb ones that was completely on. That was completely my fault. This i mean. I mean the score mobile apps in my go-to for years Got all the shows you've been on in the past. All the nfl shows got to go back literally. A segment called. Tommy stats that. I look harder for the mess. After i go through my data bases yeah. Those are good database. Damn well whatever still in general geos a guy that i can but yeah i mean. I don't know aaron hicks. Aaron hick sitting third is still the craziest thing like the the worst group of people on twitter are the people who are like. Yeah you're right. Aaron hicks a three hitter. He's a leadoff hitter. Are you fucking stupid like you. You're watching this guy. Hit not at the ball. He's he's a two hundred header to twenty editor. He walks a lot whatever. And you're like oh yeah he just made out. He's gotta go get more at bats at the lineup. What he needs to be at the bottom like it's just i know people on base percentage john base right. That's the other thing is they're like. Oh you're a casual fan. If you don't think aaron hicks like gets on bass and stuff the casual fans are the ones that all you do. Is you look at a box score. You look at these advanced analytic. I mean nothing. Obop's even advanced at but whatever near like. Oh no he has to hit here because these numbers say that urinate. Like how about you. Watch your game and form your own opinion with your own eyeballs. Casual fans is stupid. I hate when people say that you're a casual fan because you don't think because on base percentage kind of high like yes hit soared softball lineup. So we put them in third. Because of his walks he walks. You're muted you. Meat yourself and frozen. I don't see him frozen. Just see that he's muted is a better. i f. you're not muted. I just looked at your hands like what's mardi doing. And then you and then it's you didn't want us to hear what you're about to say i did tell me if i'm wrong so we also have third because obviously a switch hitter and he's a lefty yep very heavy but he is with our own eyes. We see him that he stinks. And i'm all for like the lefty in there but why don't we move them down at all ever. I don't as don't get the reason or dislike who gives a fuck at the left. He's not days not working so it's changing also. He's the only like the way i think is. He's the only switch hitter in the lineup. Assuming you know it's the normal so it doesn't matter where in the lineup he hits he's still gonna have eat guys around him. That are all right. You know what i mean. Once he goes through in the order like the moment he gets out whatever and voting rights. Yeah like i can understand if you had to lefties for now. It's bruce but when it comes back it's not right if you had to then it's like okay we want but it's like it's always going to be eight and also that doesn't matter just he's not he's three it. You know who really was the most perfect three in front of june didi gregorius was the most like because he was the lefty. Your wanted in there. You want the left. I do get that and it was. He made contact all time and he hit three hundred for a while. He said he's just not here anymore. But yeah he can it third because driving runs. He doesn't get the ball right. He's fucked lefty. I i've been. I've been on. That sucked the lefty for wildlife. Jj john jastremski always gets texts. Me like more lefties wanna brantley really badly no. I actually agree with that in the lineup. Have them so. They shouldn't like the the have like they just have. The i was thinking real earlier. Giancarlo stanton i know he was good in the postseason last year and that vice him a fair amount of goodwill as it should to some yankee fans. I was like two at bats this weekend. Right but that trade really. When you think about it. I really think screwed the yankees so much like day already had basically giancarlo stanton with aaron judge like they just went all in on. This seem like gary sanchez. The same way. Luke void a little bit like just righty power hitters. Who strike out a lot like they needed to diversify the lineup. And now they're stuck with him for the next. I don't like people like you. I hey people like you. Because we've i got him. Every yankee fan had six bona's run around the city. You're correct and it's the best because that's what we do we He was the best hitter in baseball and like us. The most electric player in baseball is a big thing and yet it hasn't panned out for us. But i don't think that's what the yankees usually do. We went after the biggest guy but yet he sucks right now and he and i still believe in them. I think i. I still believe i do too. I what i hate dope people saying like he's ruining us where it's like. Do you anyone in. The world would have gotten him if we could. I mean i. I don't think he's ruining single handedly. But i just think that overall like he's part of the problem like the yankees just approach to building lineup exemplifies. what's wrong. yeah. I also will this there A five innings away in the in the in october last year from giancarlo he's single handedly winning that series against the wrist like so he. He played very like the way he play. Now tober he'll get back to that he'll be fine. The problem is is that he's were stuck with u. There's no way you can move them and can't play any other position so really hurts the team that what i was getting to the point with trump ski and and brantley is that people wanted to trade luke. Voight just to get a lefty in the lineup. That's craz- that guy led the league home runs. He's heart and soul your team. You don't trade that guy just so you can have someone the lineup. That has l next to his name. That makes no sense to me. It's not even a lefty. Righty thing. I just want more more like that. Of course yeah ninety. I mean not. everyone's going to be digital. May what the same concept of greater. Yeah they just need more hitters like that and they did not do that this off season and i think that is going to ultimately like them in the ask october. Yeah and the origin of that problem is giancarlo. Stanton's situation so we got there. We got to the point. And i will say l. are under and carlo. I can't do this again this year. He just we're just gonna sit people like well okay. I kind of understood it kind of because it was another day game. Five straight games. More games orioles. So how many games in a row. We're gonna play giancarlo figured out last year. Resting him judge whether they still are going to get hurt. Like it's not gonna matter like okay get hurt sooner if you just burn them out. In april i think when they're healthy squeezes much out of them as you can get hurt now 'cause when we were arrested them they get hurt later get hurt anyway. So like when they're not hurt you might as well play him as much as possible. I liked to you got a good. You got what you got to get everything cattle. That's one school of thought. I guess just the shit at a judge in. Yeah we know they're gonna run out of juice eventually. let's just squeeze it all out right now. It's fun squeezing. I'm picturing a woman picture an orange chris. I'm glad you are bickering. Soft lemon lemonade. Would god a lot issues. She's all around. We've got a lot more talk about here and also want to hear from you guys the fans. How your experience was the yankee stadium before that switch gears for second getting real serious for second last year has been really hard a lot of people and that's what we're doing something new we're partnering with our new sponsor. Better help online therapy at partial sports. We we love and appreciate our fans. The end of every like yankee season on like unsolicited. I don't ask for anything.

They love five runs but the watching the white sox watching what's his name in the head on a fly ball was most joy how much joy at the entire weekend and i had the text white sox eight blog that everywhere. I go block this viral. Your game as white sox. Dave talked the white sox. Such loses men already losing to nothing. What i said this before. It might have lost the audio otani starting. And he's pitching and hitting home off the i. It sounds like a bomb went off. But i'm gonna. I'm gonna say something mature i'm not gonna hate shohei ohtani anymore. It was going to root for him this year. I remember we can be dolts. We can we can realize out on the podcast. And i don't think i've ever should've now. I got pissed it him really i. He became mom because he wouldn't even sit down with the yankees because the yankees play spring training and florida and he refused to just pick anyone who played in florida's. Fuck you. Who do you think you are soft ass bitch. But was like a thing where it's gangster their getting troy otani. Shohei ohtani then refused to even interview with. I was like my anger. The the root of my anger was that he didn't even sit down with us if he just sat back with the new york. Yankees didn't want to be in like that big market team right. But he went to la la airline and allow right. That was my loophole back. Then all right. Whatever he's awesome. I'm just gonna appreciate him as a good. He's fucking nasty and the white sox it's awesome. I watched every game the series whatever reason. Mlb tv and all that they're not good and the yeah and they'll eat out forever. The red sox are own three. That's fun orioles. Just ship them this weekend. The eli should own gods. Y'all row another thing. He didn't blog until the next day. Idiot like all the rest of them in that organization. What not beginning to trail withers tweeted. I literally google abused debt. I saw yes. So i- tommy. We noticed lending for coming back. And then i tweeted it kind of like started. I legitimately have google whether died in case you forgot. Haitian thursday night at his his out for four months with a torn pectoral muscle torn teddy and and and they held his jersey up there with the rim and they all signed it and they tweeted out like with us forever and always. What are we doing here. He's the angel stadium with tyler skaggs. I didn't think i was like it. Felt like the jose fernandez like it was i. I actually was like april fools jokes like it was thursday. I was like just like an eight how to they were tweets. About how like how many again. Commonsense department someone in that organization needed. Just be like guys. We can't do this for everyone on. The team signed the jersey. Everyone agreed it was good idea. How do you do why my son's jerseys making his way back and i'm cooking. It's also not even like that like maybe if it was almost like an out accused in a car crash or something was out for a few like just all i mean a actually believe he got a second opinion on it and it's a little better than the originally thought it was so he started even out the full what they originally thought. He's out a short time in baseball like muscle. We should look like dude. What did you do. And it's neither was derek. Jeter who played nineteen years and his twenty. Start up a little like it's like who the fuck like shut up man. I get what anyone in the world. I the fact that i google is he. Dead was unbelievable r.i.p. Eli was trending on twitter. Jeff make sense unbelievable. Eli must have looked at the fuck to do i. You know something. I don't yeah. Did the surgery go. Bet what's going on here. Fucking tyrod taylor. Whatever bads bed surgeon Yeah that was pretty good point. Good bring up marty. That was jimmy. Surreal and it's. It's no mistake that thereabouts if they lose this game one in three to start the year for anyone wanting to but the red sox as well swept mets zero wins this weekend bombs so whatever things could be worse could have zero win. Starting monday couldn't be me though we have a we have a good. W what else here You catch a void commercial yeah. Bmw right just a face of bmw. I was like wow good for luke. Voice ought to do he.

Tj lemerre Here's somebody who wants to game. Yesterday i went to the game yesterday. First of all they don't they. Don't check your code vaccination pass you could easily get a copy from a friend or someone and show that to them The crowd is great. They don't really care where you sit had tickets for one. Thirty two landed up sitting in the bleachers time At one point the crowd is getting into it with Greet and the outfield and kept turning around acknowledge yes But overall good time felt that felt great to be back in the stadium. Do you need a vaccine car to get in an accident. And that's one of the way it's the same thing as msg us so you have to be two weeks. You're moving her second dose or the johnson and johnson. And then you can get it but as long as you're not then you still need test. I heard the same thing or at least i read. They have nobody at like the rose till like. Check you into the your seat the limit. How many people they have employed like whatever but i think only legends. It has those people otherwise really wherever you want which is interesting. I'm sure they rose sectioned off and whatever tire section brother went to the game up on saturday and two. We've been just looking for like people with like. I like what it's like a new kashmir like an my brother one i was magin. Bardy just went ones the game and he Forty bucks. I rode bleaches. I heard tickets are pretty cheap today. I think you've got him for twenty bucks. That's great tastic. That's pretty good. I spent way more for my wednesday tickets. I bought immediately mistake. I spent four times as much as that actually. Okay but that's cool good to know I wanna be very curious. If billy's how what the bible billy's stand slow capacity limited. I assume i assume billy's is a fucking madhouse like the line was and no one's loved stands because it's so small that would be my guess the also any anyone else call it teacher. Here's somebody joking about a Just falling in. Just talk about the new colbert protocols. yankee stadium. Yeah they had be one of those rectal. Thermometers you walk in h bend over the shoved right up then. Free berlin cova covert cast saying that you negative in good all all right. Good stuff must be a weird section. A new section. Gator like a guy that doesn't even have doesn't even have yankee employees equipment on just like standing on the corner and being like oh let me imagine. Somehow that was accurate. What happened this guy. Just got fucking some shut. The percents them. There's only two hundred dollars the all. Cj is a call from a astros. Fan lovely barstools official astros fan freddie e here called an i hate this guy date talk this season and i already know that the ashes gonna kick the yankees ask again again. You already know it a hubs. This message is for you. Man mean you yankee stadium. He must have a one hundred. Fifty run responded messages. Dm to me like right. Now guys a crazy person and all and then in the middle of it he'll be like please hire me and it's like i don't know if that's the direction that people taking dire me already is barstools official. Yeah he's just doing it all right cool working for for freelance we've anymore. People went to the game. Dj ninety second that until they cut it off. Yeah guys joe from new york Big fan of show low very guys. Do i just want to give you some insight on what happens on so i went to oversee on say anything vaccinated so we downloaded this like excelsior. Pass the new york has and information somehow knew that we had the vaccine so we got there like an hour early around noon just in case. It's going to be like a long wait. Children are celsius. Pass on your phone they. Qr code id took our temperature and the let's right in you know like security you take you only get right in and it was really quick. Fifteen minutes to clear security and everything Our seats pretty good and really separated. They're like tied off seats but a lot of people during the game like sneaking down the cut the ropes to try to get good season. This is good information. Nobody like in the upper deck mostly like on the one hundred level artists sneaking down which was kinda cool concessions agree e deers easy. Like not every concession was open lines were impacted. All you can do. So it's ready and then you can just go there and pick up your food. That's the only disappointing thing i saw was during the ymca strengths that ground screwed and do it all. That's also shit training people or something but that's the only downfall otherwise experience you caught well. Great call very insightful formation. We want a good. They were doing the lie. Mca last year. Just for nobody in practice. That's that's upsetting. That call is also like when you sit down and your mama Doing your mom. Actually how your day was. And she says go in detail and he went totals. It's almost like he wrote it down. Notes hit like a word. Count for an essay. Or something i appreciate. I think that guy's name is joe. Good job good job. The him All right so. I think i read. I read on the or whatever that billy's they're all all the bars are open. The billy's line was crazy. Which that makes sense to me. And imagine capacity it stands as very low It's probably like they can only have certain amount of people in so they probably can't let the capacity is probably pretty good with billy's because it's the line might be so long 'cause like maybe they can't let people until people come out. Yeah she probably gotta get two billion pretty early. So it'd be interesting. Concessions was my other worry. I wonder is little bells open. I got a brian. I think it is That would be important to me guber. That's interesting ubereats thing. I i remember like they were trying something like that. Maybe wasn't ubereats. Maybe it was like seamless or postmates couple years ago and people do it but maybe uber ubereats more important this year. Yeah all right cool. That was great. I'm excited going on wednesday against the tight taione's debut very excited to see him. And yeah we i. You could not have covered the yankees weekend better than this episode. We just covered every little part of it and more and you know what you're getting hopefully a little taste of a we go the stadium very excited to go. And that's it so that's short porch. You guys get anything else. That nothin' nope great. Yeah that's a show. We'll see you back here back to two weeks now. So that's obviously two weeks. You hearing this now. You hear us again on thursday and off. We go in the coming up here. The red hot first place undefeated baltimore orioles. Montgomery i believe is monday. Coal again on tuesday tyrone on on wednesday away. We go into twenty twenty one. See back here john sterling the listening to short fort missing levin. Pyeho day with lumpy all.

Welcome to another dishing of the short porch. I'm your host hubs along Sammy on the laptop Mike goes might come Padre, the colossus cloud. Tommy, smokes Thomas Kelly. What's happening? What's up just finished? My game of thrones rewatch today, some little depressed because that was taking up a lot of time for the past couple months. And now until baseball season really starts from you have spring training. But until regular season starts March madness. There's less stuff for me to do. Are you not like a fan of the vendors that? I am kind of like next Friday. I'm just prime behind. So I actually just finished watching guardians of the galaxy to the good, and I still have to watch Thor ragnarok, and then the last one of the best ones they made, and I'm gonna watch avengers. I still haven't seen the latest vendors Jesus. Well, there's your stuff. That's we gotta do. I mean. Yeah. Which is in in three seconds. We just saw what you have to do and what they're to be so bored. But yeah, I have not rewatch him. Thrones. Yet. I don't know if I'm going to probably do like the last couple of seasons especially the last season. But I'm do six and seven probably hell on drag Ellen. Did it take you couple of months, but I was watching my down and never seen it before. So I was watching it with him too. So I when I originally watched it on my own at you could knock out like a month three weeks. But gotcha. Yet. I went to Chelsea color concert Friday, my favorite artist. She's unbelievable stronger. Commence everybody does a few short porch people there, and that was kinda like wild because it's just a ninety percent like girls, then 'cause she's just a cheese big with like, you know, younger girls, whatever. But I love for music. So I was there. It was. It was awesome Jong in the Yankee news here Aaron Hicks. We're gonna leave a lot to talk about guys where we're gonna be here for a while all longtime, but Aaron EQ seven year seventy million dollar contracts that kinda came out of the blue. I mean, I'd I didn't expect when I show seven years a kind of like jumped and seventy million. I'm like, well, that's amazing ten years out ten ten million a year. I'll take that in a heartbeat. You don't I think the seven years is sort of misleading because if the extension was five year, seventy two million. I think everyone would be like, oh, yeah. Like, no one even bat ni- in would be fourteen million a year. I think people just see that seven. And they all scared, but it's almost better to have it seven and five because lowers the annual now, you've only, you know, ten or so million ear, so I mean, it's really good extension. It's a bargain for I think it's an investment more in what he can be a little bit. What he is. But also what he can be staying healthy. And being the player was the last couple seasons is really no reason to to not like it. Yeah. If if we know the Yankees weren't gonna get much out on Harper. But their plan was to add the people they did. But they're also being very very very smart locking up their own. That's then I'm pretty much all all board this this plan because Aaron Hicks of antacid baseball player when he's healthy. He played a career high hundred thirty seven games last year changed his diet going into that year. So there's no reason to believe he can't do that. Again. He is known for his like, you know, frequent muscle polls. He loves like pulling his inner coastal muscle. And like, I know whether it is, but he loves doing it. I thought there was a chance you just made that up. Yeah. Exac. Like when you see intercoastal. I don't have it in my body. But inter he's essentially a true five tool threat. He does everything there's nothing he doesn't do poorly. This also probably nothing. He does exceptionally a great fielder. But the he's not like superstar anything, but he's good at everything. He's a kind of five tool threat is that right, right? He saw that. That's what I was in good enough in in each five to get that nod. But he's not, you know, excellent at all of them. Yeah. But good guy having centerfield. You know, I always like how when there's a ball hit to him. He's camped under it, and he almost looked so bored out there when he catches it. He's almost like pissed off the ball in challenge more. He just stares up at the sky and kinda has his hand out. He's so casual with it. But he got the ball. Every time six weird routes, the balls as a canon for an arm at a career high twenty seven homers last year. Like, I said. Kind of games for the first time really ever. He only played like upwards of eighty or ninety before that. So it's a good good deal. I don't think there's any reason to hate on it because let's say you get four to five good years out of him. You you're like another, you know, three or two to three left wants ten million a year, you can eat, you know, get rid of him or trade and not that we want that we want all seven years to be great. But like, you know, there's always these poison pill contracts. They backload last couple years on some deals does nothing with this. This is just a good old fashioned good deal on both sides Hicks gets his longevity. I mean a couple years ago an extra trae for John Ryan Murphy. Now, the guy got a seven year seventy million dollar contract. He's ecstatic and the Yankees, you know, they're betting Cashman had a quote, and he said, I'm betting on you. He told Aaron Hicks based on you know, they they love his work ethic is played discipline is defensive ability for think, it was Lindsay Adler said she had a conversation with him like last year and. And it was all about because he's big on opiates and on bass percent. You know, Aaron hill hit three thirty four you. But I will say on on. I'm not expecting three thirty. I'd like him to hit forbid a higher than average. I'd like to flirt with two seventy. Maybe I'd even take two that's gonna be one thing. I want to harp on this year is higher average. I know on base percentage is important and a single or a walk as good as a single yada yada, yada. I know I sound like an old man yelling at a cloud. But I want their averages to be a little bit higher. And the reason is I look at the Red Sox from last season right in a bunch of guys that I mean putting the ball in play is big the royals contact from a few years ago. You put the ball in play you get hit. So. Yeah, you know, three seventy will be is really nice. But I'd love to see him get that average up a little bit to you know, to seventy or so right. I didn't realize he got MVP votes last year. He finished twenty second the MVP. He's starting probably was a agree. Average looks cool. It looks like a guys into for what? Ever like rather him into seventy five. But I mean, I'm local guy, and I look at three sixty six will be peace fantastic. I'll take you know, and it can get better three seventy two the year before that he's a percent of the conversation. I think it was Lindsay aller. And he told her that a strikeout is like the lease of like he base was indefens-. He was defending people striking out, then you'll have people shit on all junk, all stay right? But he's just like it's the heart most harmless out you can make because you can't get into play or any of that shit. So the least productive out you can obviously. So there's this too it. But she just said his approach to the game is super analytical. He's a big, you know, he's big research and numbers, and you know, he likes his VP highs. Oh, PS high and all that. So he's a good guy. Definitely got lockup KFC was Turpin. He was like, oh, the evil empire is now truly officially dead the sea stun in the dirt Machado Harper Vale when you get Aaron Hicks until he's thirty seven sues. It was just the most like. Uninformed tweet. I think I've ever seen on Twitter. I knew it to think he was very thing. He was trolling. But at the same time not play. I mean, this is I comment on those like you would die for a player like Aaron Hicks on the Mets. They have anyone like that. There was twenty years ago. The inky is locked up. A switch hitting center fielder to a seven year extension in Bernie Williams. And I think that you know, there you could draw similarities between their games patient hitters. Switch hitters, obviously. I come out. I think. Yeah. So definitely the right move. Yeah. Like, you said, maybe when he's thirty five or whatever you might not be worth it. But it's ten million dollars a year. So I look rice Harper would have been lovely. But you know, locking up our Knicks long as you stay healthy, really confident him. It is crazy thinking about twenty sixteen when he hit two seventeen. I mean, he was he was getting a level of. Hey, you know, he was in not quite Stephen drew territory, but he was up there with. How much people were hitting him. Also got hurt. He would get her to on top. Yeah. Who would have thought just a few? You know couple years later leadoff guy. People were elated with this contract. Yeah. We spent a lot of times I'll wrap it up real quick. But Charlie whisk. Oh, I think he's now Charlie freer, whatever the hell is last name is on Twitter. He had a very tweet so player a four hundred eighty at bats a four point seven war to forty eight batting average ninety ninety runs scored seventy seventy nine RBI's. I think we all that's Aaron Hicks player beat five hundred fifty at bats a one point three war to forty nine. Batting average one hundred three runs scored hundred RV is do you think that guy's spice Harper harbor. He's getting twenty million twenty five more million a year than those. I find those things interesting sometimes but same time, we all know, boys. Harper is with force. But I'm just saying like, yeah. Value. These daytime value real some other guys if you like war than Aaron Hicks is your guy like he's he's number. He was second in the last two years combined in war, Ben center, fielders, Mike, trout's, only only guy above him. Oh, sorry. He's third Tom. Tommy fans ahead of them at ten point one Hicks at eight point two trout, sixteen point seven will he's an alien account. Yes. So overall, the don't hate it all and if you get really analytical Devon Finks at Aaron Hicks would only need to be worth a seven point five were over the next seven seasons in order to pay off his contract. And I mean, it I just told you that he has a combined point to his last two years so easily do that in you know, season in the half for sure. So a big time deal we mentioned Harper. So we'll get into that real quick. I guess, you know, he side of the Phillies. Good for good for guys money weird. Contract. No outs. Thirteen years. No opt-outs in Philly. I don't a he said he wanted. I mean the way he described it was that. It's a statement that he's there forever. He's gonna fish career there any wants people come to him and know that he's not gonna ever opt out and leave. So from that standpoint lecture. But that's again, I mean thirteen years stuck in the same place. Vital Burt made a funny Joe he's like I would never agree to anything for thirteen years. I would never go be someone's friend for thirteen years. That's so long. And then some are Johnny Damon signed his he became a Yankee thirteen years ago. Johnny came Yankee thirteen years ago that is I'm surprised Philippine radio. But I'm surprised he. I'm surprised for both sides that it was thirteen years. Just yet. Because for Bryce I mean, if you go say, let's even to say Levin three thirty you're getting a higher annual value each year in your hitting free agency, two years younger. I mean, he would hit freight until like thirty seven down the road where he committee play for another couple years still make some more money to add onto that three. Maybe is earnings and three sixty three seventy and for the Phillies. I'm surprised, you know, they didn't they want. Also agree that out because I know the average annual value would be a bit higher. But you also are not paying thirty eight year old or whatever. But, you know, whatever for whatever reason they agreed thirteen three thirty obviously very similar Carlos Stanton's contract except for the opt out or lack thereof in Bryce Harper's case. I'm still surprised. I mean, if you look at the quotes after from Cashman Boris, basically, the keys were never on ever an for which I think is still crazy. I think three years from now. You know, Bryce Harper's winning the World Series in Philly and he's hitting forty five home runs a year. He's the clear face baseball winning MVP. The Yankees are gonna regret. I really do. I think that the fact that they didn't even seem to kick the tires and really do their due diligence. Right is shocking. And I do think they will regret it one day. And I'm upset just as a fan. I think would have been cool to have price Harper past six years. We've been talking about it. But I don't think he he loves Mickey Mantle you'll be and the fact that it is never even was sort of an option is bizarre to me. Yeah. It's if you told me couple years ago that I would fucking light you on fire. I mean, we have to deal with it that there's to move on. So like, I'm going to be content with what we got. I'm more than content. We got one hundred nineteen and improved whatever. But you're right. The fact that they didn't sit down with him is frustrating, especially when you like what if they what do you think if we made the dodgers offer because the dodgers apparently offered forty five million a year for four years. He'll get the Yankees offer that. The whole. I dunno feel any maybe I mean, I think he clearly wanted a long-term deal. So yeah, you never know exerting to look at him as like the girl the girl they never asked out. And you know, she went married some other guy. Maybe they'll regret at one day. Just gotta hope to grow got real gets really ugly. I guess is. Yeah, there's the miss at. The bottom line Gill. This guy's the best. He he was the guy who I mean, he he's wrong everything he does pull up how wrong he was. He he's the guy basically column ary decide who's gonna play football. And he he chew after Murray decided to play football on Twitter announced that Nightingale published an article saying how he's he's considering baseball again just so wrong about it. So now now Bob's back is electric. I'm just so I came when I came ARCO in on a baseball store, you know, it's legit. You know, it's like funny, and he's interested. He's obsessive about Nightingale because of me because Bobby I call Bobby lightning now. And so the morning Harper the more the Harper Harper nounce, like probably two o'clock, so at ten thirty seven the morning Nightingale publishes a story. Bryce, Harper's free agency reaches final stages, and the Phillies might no longer be favorites as dodgers make aggressive bit. So of. He did that. Then when Harper the deal get announce Nightingale tweets rice, hopper gets ten years three hundred thirty million with an opt-out believed after three years. He was just wrong about everything in that tweet everything besides you got three thirty nailed that. But the thirteen year deal, and there's no opt-out. So Bob is wrong about he's how does he trust his sources, I will say it's almost being wrong that much is almost really impressive as being right of that much. Right. You would think just typically speaking he'd he'd he'd get a few right here. And there that much is its own skill. It's like when you lose twenty bets in a row is like, right. It's like, yeah. It's like going to the roulette table in, you know, betting color in losing twenty times in a row or whatever. It's statistically is impressive is winning twenty. Unbelievable. The last part about a Harper interaction Gardner bird garner. When he heard about the deal. That's a long time. I won't still be playing for thirteen more years. I know that Greg bird goes Siri. Gardner goes. Yeah. Maybe two or three bird Dannatt. I don't know what burden actually believe that. I think he was pretty sure he was in on the joke. I know we date him. But I would think he's joking is weird probably thinks he's four thousand chances for the spoke of play forever. But fifty years Greg bird moving on. Now. We'll get more Yankee shed we hadn't Harper, and we could just we did one ignore it. But we have to talk about it. There's the battle going on in Tampa, Florida these days, I mean, you can throw like any giant war even been in. You know, like us versus Britain, the revolutionary war everything that they stack up with Greg bird versus Luke Floyd down in Tampa. I mean, it is back and forth. It is just a battle of tight spring. Training titans. I'm navarine, but every tweet got notifications tournament phone, no one day bird hits a dull bird has like four extra base hits. Look Voight responds with homerun answers back and forth back and forth. I don't even know if these you think they walk by other in the hallway. They just like is it awkward stare each other down or so I envision maybe knock something because hands whichever one like everyone's holding something I know. I mean, look, I'll just say this. I hope that whoever wins the job continues this pace when the game starts actually matter. I feel like that's not going to be the case. I I'm afraid that basically one person, you know, one person in the job be bad in the majors. The person that get sent the triple eight will tear up in the minors will then switch and they will switch back again or the person the majors goes cold person in the minors goes on hot streak could be all year flipping back and forth and just getting the cold streaks of the people in the majors. That's what I'm afraid of. I I I have a feeling I mean injury. What someone's going to get hurt? And then that will just clear the way. I don't train those two. Yeah. I have a feeling I've really bad feeling that's going to happen. So far now Greg were to six thirteen with three doubles. And three RBI's and one home run. Look Voight is three for ten with two runs in five RBI's both having good springs. No one's really made any bad place in the field from what I've seen. It's neck and neck. I mean, the the question we've got a lot of DM's about it. Do you think we can carry both because buono kinda like hold backings? Like, maybe there's a situation where you both these guys make the team. Yeah. I was thinking about this earlier. You know, initial thought was no. I still don't think that they should. But there is a way if I mean Giancarlo has to start playing left field. Right. If you do that it's possible because then you would have unnecessary. You don't need to do. Right. You have Stanton Hicks in judge in the outfield garner as your fourth outfielder than you know, you have to locally Rando har-. And then you could have. Bird and voi-, you know, one at first, and maybe one D H is some days garnered play any put you in Carlow in lefty have on the bench of role. Mine who and Gardner were the first basement that's not playing. So it is possible. I think it gives you a little less flexibility. I think carrying a guy like Tyler Wade over one of them is better for defensive purposes because he can play more positions. But from an offensive standpoint, if they're both hitting so hot than it is possible that you know, one place I based on the is most of the time. I will say I will hate Greg bird less if that's the case because I just my whole I just want Moog. Void the play and get a chance because I think he deserves it for the end of the year he had and he still hidden in the playoffs the mentality. He brings chip on the shoulder. He brings in how big of a workout horsey is. I just really want that guy getting shot in the reason I resent Burge because I feel he's gotten plenty of chances. That's what it comes down to nothing against the guy. I think he's gotten too many chances any really hasn't done much with it aside from you know, his twenty fifteen September and his twenty seventeen playoff run. They were all good other than that. Those two little pieces of his short short career. He's pretty much been hurt were a one hundred hitter. So I just want Luke Voight have his checks. I think it's fair. I think it's I think he's he's earned it. I think the organization thinks that I think everyone around him like some a lot. I just want my man to get a shot. If he if he gets. Shot and struggling not the same guy. Then we can fuck around Greg road again fine. But I won't move as my starting first baseman on opening day March twenty eighth because I think he just deserves it. I think the American dream. We're going like that that route he deserves it and we're going second chances will birds six kids. So I think. Just it's not really fair about the American dream. I just think Luke Florida's better like to see him be the first basement that works. But yes, we'll see there from pretty much there. Alternate anything every day who's who's playing who's not split squads in times of the play the same time. It's just a very interesting thing. We haven't had something like this in a while like a back and forth race with position battle. So it's we talk about basically like watching hard knocks. You know, like you they give relationship we have our own storylines, basically. So the most surprising thing in most entertaining thing uh, spring training, so far, and there's been a lot has been Troy to Lewinsky. Now, we got this guy. You know, basically the biggest high reward low risk. You can get you know, we're paying five hundred thousand dollars the league minimum loser. Paying twenty million dollars this year next em? We're just gonna see what he's got. He can fill in for D until dis back around August. Hopefully bar no setbacks and all this guy's in spring training and people people will be like, oh, you can so fired up. His returning will know, it was our cast at the start and now is really cool. 'cause dul he'll surgery very difficult. Come back from that. It's a very very serious injury. And he plays shortstop still it's very mobile position. And so far so good. I mean, the guy let me see let me find this quote. From Boone is I'm probably more excited about how. Well, he's moving in the field in attacking the ball just playing for easy. He looks really let it got there. People are basically yo piggybacking off that and saying just he looks vintage Tula. I mean, he hits the home run against the Bluejays. It seems like it was a year ago. And we talked about that because it happened on Monday. So it's been a full week since the Blue Jays run, but he goes off taco, and he's rounding first base. He stares into the Blue Jays dugout starts like fucking cursing them off. Let's fucking go and his head. He's you shouldn't have fucking cut me you sons of bitches east outta chip on a shoulder. He's co pet I fucking love it. I was I mean outlet save a little bit of passion for the regular season. Troy, but yeah, I mean, I can't knock him for that. I think the vibe I'm getting to Lewinsky is going to be one of those players. Matt Holliday Khanna comes to mind from two years ago where he has a hot start to the season. And then maybe starts to Taylor off a little bit with injuries or slump. But I think I'd probably take that dude. I'll be gives us some home run is like the right if he gets us in an awesome first couple of months of the season where not even vintage too low. But you know, Dr good production. He's immediately worth the contract. Yeah. I mean, it's five thousand dollars. It says. Yeah. Every this is almost like more than worth it. 'cause we got like a little store talking about from him. Like, that's that's almost enough in itself. So I hope to God he keeps it up. I hope he stays healthy. He looks finally, you know, like Boone said playing free and easy. That's what you want. He's he's a treat to watch a short when he makes when he charged the ball and throws out like cross body. It's it's beautiful. He throws the ball. Effortlessly the first not after it looks that putting a lot of effort. He throws. He use your all force. But it's just it's an absolute fucking missile the first base. And he's got good range still it appears and. Yeah, I mean, this is this is great news. And it'd be great to all the Red Sox. Our like, oh, he'll get hurt in three days in like are Willie might be right? But also if we could stick in some a little bit that'd be nice. If even better if he homers against the Blue Jays in the regular season. Because I did so corrobos quoted me forgot what he said something probably the O two. They have a thing on section town. Oh too low, bro. Too low. I don't know all the second ten people tweet at me fucking losers. But he quoted me something about to Lewis, he anti Tilleke. And who do you think like that tweet? Four Mark Roman former player former player. Yeah. We'll sue me. From the Blue Jays, right? He's not doesn't play baseball anymore. All he does. He's on a team. Oh, he's on. What's? I would give it away USA. Guess. I don't know. I was giving the team ever. Donaldson liked it. I was thinking him. So clearly, they're they're not, you know peas in pod, they they didn't really get. I he plays a lot of fire maybe rooms donelson those. I feel like they would like each other. But whatever, but what a jarred tweet to sink below bro. Now, something just like getting excited for spring training home runs or slow some like that. I I can't believe it was a couple of days ago little while final Twitter. But it was it was anti Lewinsky something about, you know, getting cypher screen transfer. Oh, how much he's a loser for, you know, getting fired up that's pretty gutter and Danzig like that looking Donald it'll be like the same way. Please riding fire out get that. But no big fan too, low, whatever it sounds like the plan is due. Glacier, LeMay who in him and rotate so that should take winter really should not be in the rotation. I we've talked to this. I agree. But that's that's what they're gonna do. Maybe there. Something what maybe you know, he's off one day a week or something? But not he should not be sitting once every three days, which I don't think you'll like it is going to be like that. It's gonna he's in. I feel like he's mailing me the second baseman. Yeah. I do too. And then what was that knows? Right. He's mainly shortstop and LeMay who might merely be the second basement and the tool is gonna play early. I think to start off it's going to be too low like nonstop at short, not not stop. But I don't know. Yeah. I don't know. Actually, it's tough to see it's predict right now. I mean, we're twenty five years away from opening day a lot like there's a very good chance. What would you put the odds that swear this with Ellsberg loss? But what would you the odds Tula doesn't get hurt in spring training? Hurt at all or her ex out for opening day. What are that? He's healthy. Come opening, right? Yeah. He is your is eighty five percent seventy five percents. He's healthy on opening day. Okay. Yeah. I'll take that. Take those outs. So that would be like a minus two hundred bet doesn't seem right. Oh. One thirty five closer even than have a big favourite seven percent. I dunno. He's tough. He's a tough injured history. I don't know. I we injuries confident. Maybe it's a gut feeling too. I am too. And I tweeted that I know I'm going to get hurt because I'm falling in love with him and FireEye final response. This grace is more for me. And then he was just like cut by July, and it was just deputy. Philip forgetting sucked in but what really size. I loved him. He was an awesome player. You like, I don't know. He killed the Yankees when he's including I didn't like them as a you know, I didn't like him because I was liked his game. He would make very very awesome plays in the he was constantly on web webcams. Speaking of injuries were run through milk with nothing. Crazy. Clint guy hit on the wrist today or hand we'll scary. He's completely fine. Those he said so that God, I knew it was fun. I saw posted a picture on Instagram with with tool, actually, I believe right. Like a little after. So I figured hey, you know, what he would if he was really upset and hurt he was probably post on Instagram Clinton. You wanna get us to low in the pod w Khanna's sick lease. Brett Gardner today. Very funny. Little thing very Gardner esque. Very state trooper Gardner, very hard. Oh gardner. Lindsey. Our tweets baseball such an odd sport garner reach base today on a hit by pitch after a curveball down five feet in front of the plate in bounce hit him in the wrist. He has a Mark from it, but declined to wrap it overnight. Is is care. That's hard Ogori sign of weakness. If you wrap it from injuries is that's classic garner. He's in midseason form ready. An Aaron Hicks has a stiff back. It sounds like just being very precautious, and they're not very concerned all and he'll be back to a few days he'll be back to normal. But you know, all your you will get Yankee sweater overreacting this seven year contract because he has a stiff back on March third. So they'll be those Suva people out there some highlights Aaron judge they had a lot of fucking. I was very hung over title at a very long night last night funding and. The eggs a lot of home hormones will cure high hangover help it because it seemed like every five minutes they were hitting a ball out gardener leads off of one Garnett today. Judge hit to his second one. They both opposite field. His second one went through a right, fielders gloves and just bounced over the steps it was hit. So fucking hard went through the glove. Grevy was mean, I was a as watching the first inning. And I was on, you know, you know, always like nice to see when the keys are putting out a cell lineup. I training game. Right. First two at bats. It's like homerun homers. Oh, I this is just great to say garnered his shot too. Yeah. In the Aaron judge said that in the dugout a garner was like bragging about his home, run or whatever. And then judge was like well going up is harder. And to bragging about his his shot outright field. Judge is going to have a monster season. I mean, he always does if he's healthy. But he is mad. I think still about being hurt last year. Are these going to put up twenty seventeen numbers? Yes. So I guess we can talk about now. He will. He did a New York Post, interview and shocking. He didn't do a partial sports. I mean, I thought for sure we'd have that scoop. But he didn't interview any said he does not regret the New York New York thing, which I love then we have to set. Yeah. I really like that. I don't know what like I people people to bring up my own comments when it happened back that, and you know, we all were like fuck it wishy didn't do that. But looking do that now, I wouldn't do it. I would do whatever single time. Tim saying he would still do it. He kind of has to say that. Oh, I do it again. But yeah, I can say I still wish you hadn't done that. But it's not like he's single the Red Sox out. He does that for every single time. They leave stadium every time. They get a win on getaway day on the road. He doesn't it's non-eu Red Sox. It's still it was such an oath sold under five facts. I just wish to your big on the butterfly if he doesn't do it. Maybe there attacks win the World Series. Maybe I I think the damage quote was way way more impactful than that. Damage is like they're fucking slogan all year long. I don't really rushed than the playoffs. Barsial probably try to make it seem like the speaker was a big deal. I don't think the players were affected by it. I think they were. No, I think the Red Sox you lot of the ankles are affected, but I think that Red Sox. He was very good. Like you mentioned with downs. They're very good at built aboard material loss in Boston. It's thrives in chip. They weren't know. Alex Cora wasn't ended up being like, well, you guys aren't does doubt at every getaway day where he plays. They're they're like. Fuck disrespecting us. So I are them up a little bit. I still think that you agree, though, the damage quote from Kashmir was way worse. Overall. Yeah. I mean at the time I think, but I mean to put that on their playoff what he's right. Yeah. So that's probably worse as show much worse. And then it let's four-game. I love the song New York, New York. And I hate that gave it to them for that hit them still ours were taken aback, even we don't even have to still are still gonna play it. It's nine oh anymore. No. I agree. It just it's in Amy coli think pretty much Aaron judge will never win another playoff game again. Because of that. It's just dumbest thing it's ridiculous. That's just a coli little thing. Thing. Oh, here's a. Just quote about the home run that it was hilarious. He said he was just really trying to dunk a ball over the second basements head. I was able to get the barrel on it. I was just trying to save those for the season. But I'll take them right now. I guess so he was just trying to hit a little bloop single. Right. And it just went out for home run. That's the mass. What happens when you're six seven two hundred eighty. That's that's what happens when you the power of Dodd and yell when else can match you fucking unbelievable. And we don't really I don't give a fuck every two months that he's like that's not a guy on spring training. Just just stay healthy. You know, has some I would I would sign up for him basically going for thirty than over spring training healthy for opening day. But then it starts storylines shit. I don't want that. Well, yeah. All right. Three for thirty. That's that did not make it any better. I just wanted to healthy is what I'm trying to say three hundred thirty is of one hundred batting average. It's bad. But I wanted healthy. 'cause I know it will be okay that. Yeah. I totally agree with sentiments though. For sure. Brett Gardner and judge agreed that the team's going to break their own home run record. I think they're going to shatter considering Giancarlo kinda had a lesser slippery in homers, but he can do more than that. And judgments, two months. Yeah, I feel like a Gary had such a disaster year gallery hit a fucking homerun today. I think off the bat of Erica yard upset miles per hour. Rated it three hundred miles an hour. I add that one central yet fizzle. But I think they're gonna shatter the record if they want they broke last year, given shatter it shatters tough. I think sixty seven home runs a lot, and you have to remember that e you know, games missed by drugs. Sanchez other guys are games. Played by replacement players. Don't have the same power books. Bill if they were still hitting some home runs Robinson while not just Jane Robinson. But you know, all the ball his face today. Gee, I mean, that's true. That's like Shane Robinson update. It was the most Shane Robinson thing of all time just square in his face. He's I agree that, you know, Gary should hit more home runs this year. Judge shouldn't moment this year, Carlo probably. But there is there could be regression in other air. I again, I just think two hundred six seven dollars is a lot. I think they'll be right around there again. But I'm not gonna confidently say they'll shatter it. I think they will. But that's whatever teacher on Danny Farquaad. We haven't really talked a lot about him. So I mean, I think you know, by now of but he it in twenty teen first month and season last year the guy collapsed in the dugout for he was on the White Sox. He claps in the dugout against the Astros. He lost consciousness. He was throwing up. He was taken to the ambulance. He had a brain hemorrhage which caused a ruptured brain aneurysm. I mean, you throw those words around and I get like like he he was at the point where in June when he threw out the first pitch for them that was a humongous deal. It was like he's walking. Again. He throw a pitch. Now's guys like back playing baseball, which is even more improbable. So yang. He's gave a minor league contract and he's wearing a special helmet slash hat. You know, it's weird protective thing. But the guy that got to do it and yet he pitched day he fucking rocks. But it's okay. Five runs. Got the loss zero one hundred thirty five it's fine. But he was quite he's from everything I've seen he's like the happiest men in the world. Like, he's just he's just seems to really love being a Yankee to being alive. I think. Yeah. Like, he just like a big fan of Bing live, which is good. That's fair. I like my players being happy there live. But his quote was obviously the results were in great. But I call good day. I've never been high fives so much giving five runs in my career. Just funny. But yeah, it's a good, you know, June. He's probably not totally. Oh, thank God. He's alive. It's like you stink like duty fucking game. No. He wasn't good pitcher like he's he's a tenth round pick back into dozen eight. He put fucking really good numbers the minor leagues. He has good stuff. I mean, obviously he had quite the setback. But the dude is these thirty two maybe you could give some stuff in the minors in crack, the big. I don't think he's going to be making the big league roster. I think it would be impossible on opening day. But who knows maybe I I think he'll he'll make an appearance in the Bronx. I mean, you think about the Skype shuttle often make shoveled pitcher out and shitty guiding five runs fine. But like assuming he can get back to his or get close to where he was before this. There's no reason he can he can pitch a little bit in the Bronx. So we're ruined for a show. There was a funny story with pretentious, right? You said it. I thought you brought it up in pre show, whatever. But you had you had put it on the up. I was just teeing you up to talk about the story. But well, you take it. Okay. You've lost your pillages, Danny Farquaad and Delon of roommates briefly AA Farquaad said he greeted Matanzas in Spanish, and then had a good conversation. It wasn't until an hour later Batanes revealed. He spoke perfect English. I like that that classic white guy. Trying to, you know, be let me embrace his culture. Try trying to not be racist than ends up being more racist than anything. Scars. This is like I I hope that when they finally broke. He I always first words in English were born in the fucking Bronx. Misconception with him. I think everyone thinks he's like a Dominican Republic guy is just born. Have you held in Kumar one time obey? I don't I seen some of those movies. I don't think. Fucking hilarious. You should see if you haven't. But there's a scene where? The Chinese guy so bad with names. Harold guys herald up so stupid. It's in the title Tara. It was weird. Herald is he's a American Chinese guy. And he's wanted for by the CIA FBI for whatever something you've seen the movie, but they're interviewing his parents as sitting down in like an interrogation like almost like Jack Bauer and twenty four situation, and they have an helmsmen from the hangover, and he's the tease the translator, and they just think Chinese people, and he's trying enunciate his words so slowly. And then try to translate it back to the FBI guy, and they just speak perfect English and goes on for like, two minutes. He just can't understand what they're said. He keeps saying like the dial the style at they've never seen before. I have no idea what they're saying. And they're speaking fluent English holes. I'm like, why won't you understand us? We are sonny's innocent. Like we. Darkens, and he's like, this is crazy shit. I've never before with daddy Farquaad. Yeah. Funny, sir. And then I found twenty dollars because I told the story terribly tell what what you've found twenty dollars. I say that when it's when I tell a story that's going on too long. It's bad story. You just you found twenty dollars to make it exciting. I don't think that makes any more exciting. Okay. Forget it. Tommy Canley haven't heard from him in a little bit of love to have him back from twenty seventeen form you striking everybody out. He had his spring training debut. He struck out. Everybody faced the struck out the side, which is good in my opinion. That's a good strategy. He was seen throwing ninety seven miles an hour. That's Tommy Canley. We know we don't wanna see ninety to Kaley. We'll see ninety seven gambling. So they said he was regularly ninety five ninety six ninety seven. I'm gonna put Tommy keenly as one of the most under the radar important Yankees. This year. Well, I did make sure bulletin that much better. Yeah. Right. But not like not even that. I mean, I think even the elite as the top five in the bullpen. You're right. You have to assume there there could be injuries, and you know, relievers sometimes go through cold streaks. And you know, the back end you still need you need as many good relievers as possible, and I think Tommy kingly he could return to twenty seventeen form. That'd be absolutely. I mean, they're both pay grade. Yeah. You can never have too many relief pitchers. Exactly. Because there is relief pitchers. I feel like it's rare to have them all clicking at the same time. I feel like even when you have the most elite bullpens usually one reliever that's going through a bit of a rut or something I put they're pretty prone to cold streaks. But you know, so the more you have the better, I think Tommy Kane -ly, let's forget the Incas gave up a. Pretty big package headlined by Blake Rutherford for him in Todd Frazier. But really a lot him Robertson. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Forgot Roberts Canley what cable. Kayla was a big piece in it was the big he was like they said like that we gave up the extra amount for Tenley. So he, you know, you wanna make that deal worth it. And I think he could have a big season for shaving without the red bull and coffee. She Chris I think drunkenly said last night that I'm gonna try to game. Once I'm not trying to six rebels into office nine his die. That's right. I mean, I'm not gonna survive that you didn't do it in three hours. Right. He would do it during throughout the right? But like it'll be like a strikeout challenge. But instead you like them die will action would actually would die. Six rebuilding your heart would be going. So yeah, you might die. What if it was six rebel Bacchus? So it's like not as much rebel. It was just out. Call. I think probably done that before not in three I've probably at one point three while like. Yeah. But you're thrown to coffees in the mix. And again, he's never tell me. A red bull cry. I don't know we did that don't be a while challenge. Like, a is the camera the whole time, my heart just exploded. We didn't really we didn't have his Neil Albert through today that guy has filthy slut and stuff. He throws curveball drops from the sky. We won't you know, this is a very very short topic. But Albert Ray will be awesome. Another arm to crack the relievers. He could also that's another name really not talking about that could be a big impact in the in. You know? Hope for him. You know, a starter to have there's no real role for him this year with that. He can I can see him being a like, the Domingo her mom of this year on you and your mind. I guess he's the first option. But I mean, you can never have enough starting pitching because the way people go down you have doubleheader games. And you know, I think that I would think Brady will probably make start for the year. Okay. That's just pretty solid prediction. We have a new segment on the show. It's not what we've been doing. But we haven't called anything. It's called is Jacoby ellsbury alive. If anyone wants to sponsored out there godspeed. I don't know if that's gonna be the best thing. I feel like that's just going to ruin your company if you do sponsor that segment, but he was once again seen reportedly is no video nothing. Nothing. Actual no evidence beside the tweet that he's running on flat ground. So we're, you know, it's it's news that professional athletes was running on flat ground. It's news. Over in a nutshell. I mean, this is all he's they're acting like he's Ryan shazier coming back four call right? Like, he got paralyzed or something. He's just very brittle and injury prone. He manning on flat. Ground should not be news Boone said that the keys will decide soon if he's ready to come to Tampa for baseball Timothy's. There's decide if you're gonna play is is is he a lot. I don't think. So what do you think the next the next elbow news is so they they a couple of days they're going to decide between a so she's gonna be I think it's gonna be Ellsberg shutout. Yeah. I think so too. I mean, let's put odds on it. Like, what's rank them? So let's go. Let's go. He'll what do you think? Odds are report like they said, he's good to go is coming back plus seven hundred. Yeah. That they're high maybe plus five hundred I'm thinking like coming back. What? No, let's say like they said he's report like that would be that would be. That's we like or plus four hundred. Okay. Plus four hundred how about. Had a setback shutdown will be no report following this like he's outed. Definitely that's gonna be minus two hundred probably and then. What else is there dead? They died. That's gonna be like plus three three hundred. I'd say plus twelve hundred but it's weird that it's listed weird enough that it's listed where it makes you double takes go. Maybe he's not not a part of the field. It's just it's all right. Yeah. The fact that they're offering this makes me wonder I am very excited for the next tweet. They're gonna come Orage, you think. Okay. So how about a new injury that he just something else? Happened is elbows shorts. Gotta be plus one fifty. Yeah. That might be the favorite. He's while running ellsbury encounter. The wind is. No longer run on flat ground. Such a pathetic person flat ground tweet L never get up. Never get enough of flat ground, teacher pro athletes. Love it. Okay. This is gonna piss me off the segment Colin coward. What's your opinion coward? You like him. Kana torn. I mean, he has this weird thing with barstool where he kind of doesn't acknowledge that we this. When I feel like it's tongue in cheek where he'll be like, oh, what are the names the bar hilt? I don't have. I don't hate him. I definitely don't hate them. I don't like listen to show or anything. I think he's intrigues may sometimes I mean, he's like every other talking headed ESPN Fox Sports world where they just say ridiculous things to try and people like me and Colin coward. Did it? Thanks a little better than than others. He's better than max Kellerman or somebody. Yeah. Like, a real person might pin? He's such a ridiculous even being the. Yeah. Cobb yet. I put out ahead of him. But yet Rana show. Call early early last week and. Coward cowed is big on football. Any Nelson basketball. He's not a baseball guy. I've never really heard him talk about baseball before just not this is a tough time for him. Mark madison's. You know, it's coming couple of weeks, but not here yet, the NBA's, you know, just in the second half of the year. Nothing crazy going on there. The NFL's dead is going on there. The draft isn't right now draft is in a little while. So he's gotta talk about baseball. So we had a are on a show. And there was McCollum already start. Eventually get the Yankees in. We'll play the Cup. Now. Do you read all about the Yankees lot of money? Aaron judge John Carlos STAN, it's a lot of Broadway. Do they have like you call it the the humanity? Do they have the guy that sacrifices like when I look at the Yankees. And I look at the Red Sox. I think the Red Sox have a perfect combination of grinders and David price and Mookie Betts rising star. Our star grinder to the Yankees have that everything's about balance. Right. And if I have Tom Brady, I can't bring in Dan Marino. Right. If I have magic I can't bring in Stockton. I need Kareem. Right. And you need a assets that complement each other exactly guild Yankees have that while I think it was interesting when you have judge and they bring in Stanton is almost like the same player. Exactly one is making over three hundred million dollars. Even though the Yankees only inherited only two hundred sixty million. You have a guy like Aaron judge who is just as good making half a million dollars. Right. I mean is on about capital allocation, and how do you deploy your capital and how to use your resources? You know, it's just like building a house, and if you have a five thousand square foot house, you can't have twelve garages. Right. And if you have it's all about complementary and what the Yankees that. So well for so long was having the complement to replay the comfortable with that. Yeah. They could have you in jeeter Bernie, but they had to have three starters. And I just I watched the Red Sox closer. Well. Yeah, they have to have a number three starter closer. But what I watched the Yankees the greatest Yankee teams that you were part of they always had complementary players. I thought Boston a great job with that last year. And I just don't know if the Yankees happening. I mean. One. What is Iran doing here? I love era, we will big with a number one era podcast. Besides the only one the one he has where you know, the Corp he's he's on. But we defend their of everything. But like, how do you just sit there and say like the Yankees don't have any complementary players we talking what is covered. It's almost like he has never isn't always on the roster. He's ever watched a game. I think I'd theory that I think he just only watch the playoff series in the AL DS. He just judging that the entire offseason was basically spent compiling complimentary player. Yeah. And also Aaron judge miss two months last year. Gary Sanchez of the worst year was life. San was. Okay. And they one hundred games. Well, wouldn't that imply the comforter players helped carry them that way about the two guys who finished in the top three of the rookie of the year voting Magellan gleyber Torres they've commented players who don't care about the spotlight. I think the definition of that what about gore? I think he's a pretty good player. Our Knicks air Knicks as pretty good Voight, the forgotten men. Yeah. I think that's a guy who doesn't give a shit about the spotlight. He just wants to play baseball. And he's a good player. I think points there. I mean, we can go down the list here. I just record. He said we only grinders which what the fuck is Brett Gardner, that's brick has made entire career to being a grinder. When you go into the dictionary next to grinder brick on his bald head pops up brick on beat the Indians into dozen seventeen the AL DS on thirteen pitch bet. I call. Is actually in in the dictionary. Video of that that is a dictionary. Like, we we talking about what do you mean? We don't have complementary players the tea we already have the most complimentary players. It was such a -rageous thing. I know it's meant to stir people up like me like we had eight road sit there. He works out with these. He's an employee. He's a special adviser as he could have body he could buried coward. They're buried listen. Eight got eight comedy players, just I'm sure has a good reason. He didn't wanna be disrespectful. He's era. Just a man respect. Okay. On his own show. I have no concerns about his loyalties. No, I'm not. I'm just a wish he he had an opportunity to destroy cower there. He couldn't any gaining out of respect. Okay. We we work with that since then, I guess. I don't know, man. It was just a announcement star people up in whatever. But I I didn't like that you one hundred games, you know. You know, it takes a full fucking Tina brick home run record. It's not just one guy can do at such. She hasn't actually should have been the biggest point of. I mean, the two hundred sixty seven home runs a nobody hit more than thirty eight. Right. Like statistically, we have to have other player that unto. Well. They like I think they're the team with the most players hit twenty or more home run say, I feel like I'm gonna I'm not an idiot here. Right. Nobody besides Carl even thirty right Hicks at twenty seven what judge finished with. I believe twenty seven as well. Okay. Yeah. Then. No, no ever. We had the most people in baseball. I think twenty seven. Yeah. What a stupid comment just we're Diculeng hoping. Crazy if I broke the home run record with no forty homerun hitters in one thirty home run hitter. And saint. It shows deep forgot who also morosi tweeted like in last decade. This is the deepest Yankee team have ever had like they are so fucking deep. So it's a little exciting to their are gonna bring everyone down here. Feeling good whatever. Louis Sessa has a real opportunity. Make the roster's Loman. Thoughts. Crazy. He's like we said he's the last guy we have to get out of our lives, and we can't get rid of him. He I thought there was no way he was going to be fun of our lives this year. I would have bet the house at the end of last season that he was gone in some former fashion through five innings at one point eight year of giving up just four hits and one run striking out six, and he'll he'll be he'll tear it up in spring training will be good in triple A. He's not a bad reliever. He's a terrible starter. Yeah. He, but he's not really a good relief. I mean, he's a starter. He's given you three and a third innings four hits three runs. Like that's the classic Louis Sesa start. I mean, could he be there maybe eleventh starter, sir? But I do not like the idea of him just having a role again whenever he's in the game is for two reasons. One were down fifteen nothing, and we just wanna get to tomorrow or two. It's the nineteen fitting, and we have used every single pitcher we have and it's a tie ballgame. He's pitching the hardy orders the only relationship she will be Sesa or it's a double header in the seven had a day off in like three weeks. Right. So whenever you see Sesa have the ball. It's exciting times. Nothing's good. Something really bad happening unless we're winning twenty nothing. We're trying to save. You know, there's no reason to toss anyone. But ninety percent of time says the ball, it's really bad news. Worst case scenario news. So I mean, I would rather any makes it worse usually. Oh, yeah. Yeah. In terms of like other options, what about Johnny lasagna? What about Michael king? I know kings rehabbing his injury. Now. I think he's gonna be okay. What about what about those? What about David Hale? I love David Hale. I'm David Hale guy. I don't know why. But air weirdly obsessed with Davis good any comes in these good, and they just send Japan when he's every like five shutout innings. They option down just goes Japan. But what David hills perfect for that? Why with the thing again, what is the what is the obsession? Louis us. Do not understand. I don't know that it's gone. It's almost like he's Greg bird like but worse what about gambling gambling on sesame start this year? I'll say that. He does make a start has to be. Yes. Minus one twenty five pretty close to pick him. I would even say minus two hired just because he's still got Johnny lasagna and he's Atta minor league options. So he has to stay here. Oh, oh, yeah. I'd much of that. Yeah. He basically gone gone forever on the team. So. While seventy five or close for him gone forever. So close to him just impacting baseball games again. So. Not good bring in spirits backup. Russell's. They're not sure if he's report. So that's great. I think probably because the whole he's involve a trades in trading. Rumors. I think that's the reasoning like he's a distraction of some sort in want the media with him. I'm actually just making that up. I really have no idea. But it's good news. I get away from this team. I like Russell Wilson. I said that I didn't mind when he came I lifted the spirits up. He's go away the next giants quarterback. But that's not gonna happen. Yeah. I think we talked about that. And you you don't think it's happening. So. Oh. Back next year. Yeah. Yeah. It's look I love Eli. But I mean, come on what you have four six six. I think they got a trade up and get Haskins yielding Hazan's will fall. No, I think who's take. No, collars, go between us. That someone's going to I think someone will trade up like try to jump the giants. I think collars, go one. I think caller go onto POWs gonna go one if his if all goes, well is pro. And I think the jets are gonna trade that pick because the raiders pick a four and the raiders wanna quarterback and everyone's gonna want to jump them to get southern a trip to the jets the jets to make out like bandits get huge load was interesting. I wonder if the giants jets would would you trade would deal. Yeah. Very interesting while that was football on this report. It's pretty good. We had lower selves will. No syndergaard. What was his Instagram? You freaked out will what was one he said to insufferable. I go off go up. Let me pull it off pulled on. So we talked about the the catch one. There's plenty of the fishing this looking for my trophy, but four days ago, he posted just a picture of himself with a hoodie on sunglasses and just goes I'll be back like we're quoting determinator twenty nineteen using like, oh, that's hilarious. I'll be back with like that. That's Noah Syndergaard comedy is. I'll be back. It's the it's the lowest orm of human comedy, maybe. And then today he posts a picture of him just like a Tim pitching. And it goes we want to bring home a title to DC dot dot dot, oops, dot dot, I'm in queens. Exclamation point. I mean, again, just very Noah Syndergaard to take the, you know, a popular joke going on right now with Bryce Harper fucked up yesterday. Well, maybe fuck up. He may have read our team Portland brush release. It may have been on purpose. Meaning that you know, we're gonna want road series. Rub. It back in DC face a White House. Visit us, oh, it's very possible that that was not a mistake. All but Syndergaard of courses inserts himself in it, and you know, tries to make joke painfully unfunny infringing Exo Syndergaard. That's no Syndergaard teak something that's either a twenty year old joke and be like, this is gonna be hilarious or take a current joke. Rennet that's the Noah Syndergaard print def-, you comment as Instagram's I've started to. I've only commented on I believe only commented on one I commented on the the no the Terminator said very funny Noah random, Terminator jokes are so relevant twenty nineteen. I. The search comments people. Isn't it weird? You can't do that. Like, I go, you're usually you. If you follow people they'll come at the top. I think usually right. But just in general, maybe I don't like I just wanna see with Tomsk belly. You know, comments villes should be less a little I don't know that seems like a no brainer on the line that, but there's a lot of features in Graham needs to incorporate as. Okay. Nothing. Really we hit a lot of shit. So let's go to some gems we're gonna do GM's permanently now on the short porch Instagram account, which I started after year after our creation of this podcast because I just don't have brain. I totally forgot to do that. So follow reports were the underscore short on his report is the short porch. Obviously short porch weren't available. So the underscore short on his four porch. You know, we're both running. We'll be on it as season goes on the it's a good way interact where you've got so we're doing DM's here. Getting we have that now to keep forgetting keep kinda we done anything with it so far. But yeah, that's a it's cool. So DM here is from Brandon Becker, assuming the Anki pursue another starting pitcher at the trade deadline who do you think the top through options would be that you would want. I'm gonna say Cougars definitely available. Bumgarner will be the probably the top name valuable. In the third. I think there is. I don't think this will happen. But I think people should there is an outside. I mean, we talked about I think last week that Houston Astros, only like what two starting pitchers and she's starting pitcher if the Astros end up being bed likely, but you don't happen. But if in some bizarre scenario, the Astros end up bed are not surprised if they shopped us Burland or because he he's going to be free agent after this year. So as Garrett Cole on chop him. But I don't think that's happening. But I'm just saying in some in some, you know, foreign world with the Astros things fall apart for them. Maybe Verlinden becomes available. They to restock the farms that's going to happen. But I was just looking at the twenty twenty eight on that. If we traded for Varinder, it would go to shit real quick like he would revert back to like aging, you know, mid thirties for lender. It wouldn't be what we wanna 'cause we missed out the last time we were in on him. We were intrigued, and we didn't do it. That would be. Faster. I guess third. Name the Blue Jays Stroman. Maybe I don't know. He's always interesting not necessarily someone I'd want. But I think it'd be available on that. It's always tough to like think like because it really depends on their performing. And you know, who's gonna Wheeler? Maybe I mean Zack Wheeler if the Mets give Lucas Duda. They wouldn't give us Achuar tell. Yeah. Fair fair. Not never happen. Trying to think of other team. It's tough annot. Like what teams are going to be sellers out like you hard to our? But why earlier? Mentioned engine this earlier the Aaron Hicks extension. I think almost guarantees Floreal is going to be moved for starting pitcher that is that is the under wall underlying themes that annoy messages that foil is definitely expendable this point. And the only the only way Floro gets moved is like Madison Bumgarner type guy like foil won't be in a little trade. It's a big red. We're getting a big guy if we give foils I mean, he's I'd love Corey kluber. But I mean Indians are going to. I mean, I think this wins are going to be good. But the Indians are things. I yeah. I think it says last August I really liked the twins to like sneak out of there with the title with the division title. I think like I think they're going to be good too. But it's like they're not gonna be so much better than the Indians were the are going to be selling at the deadline. Right. Right. Right. Yes. It's going to be a weird spot for the insta- decide to give up kluber 'cause the lead the right likely be in a good spot, the playoff give it one more. Shot with them Bumgarner. I think for sure is going to be dealt. This is this is the time this trade deadline. This year will be the time assume the giants I mean, they really didn't do much to improve in really do anything. So they're gonna be good again unless. But the tried right? The they sat down Harper. I thought there was a point like last week where I thought Harper was going to be giant. It's all things were going really well with them, but didn't work out. But definitely Bumgarner would be the top name. I'd want. He would be electric in New York on. I have no idea. How handle it like we? I think we've talked about this. How everyone be like Ghana club one night, and he just go hunting in central park. Yeah. He'd have to be told you can't just kill random. Badgley teams E like break. Nazzal kills a deer. And that's that's. Just being mad with can't candidate Michael Scanlon. What kind of contracts? Do you guys like Judd Sanchez? Every would have commanded on the free market this off season. How many years in dollars for each? It's tough to say judge. I mean a career. Yes. Like the Harper Machado signings. You'd think you know, what is judge gonna be worth? I would love them to lock him up like now. Yeah. Me too. If I think next off season, they'll really consider it when he's finally arbitration-eligible. Right. Right. Right. But he was a free agent. Three hundred more would he get more than Harper think? So. I mean the same age. So you'll remember that if he's better. Yeah. I mean, like people will still think Harper is. You know, they'll say he's been around more in another Harper deal was weird for the Phillies is because with the no opt-out thing. There's no I mean, they must think they must have. I mean, they're right that the come into the National League because Harper for thirteen years. No D H is like his knees are going to be shot at some point playing the outfield probably move to first base. But I feel like in the next three years. They are like when the when the strike that by the time. That's a problem. You'll have the. If there's five years, it'll be shocked university, definitely thirteen. So what would judge yet? Frisian right now you see the angels were like thinking of offering trout attend three fifty extension lift to better than that. If you know he's better than Harper has to get forty million a year. Let's trout Travers better than all of them right now. I'm just saying it's probably right around that. It's probably not that crazy. He's probably in that Machado. Harper rains envy. Ten for three hundred fifty million something like that. Gary Sanchez is an interesting one coming off a bad year. Almost what else would be smart. He's themes you believe they don't have faith in him because it would make so much the lock up right now or Gary betting on himself. He knows you be better. That'd be smart when Gary part to not do an extension now. But I think it would make sense for both after the season because Yankees want to be sure that he's gonna be alright and earned it and Gary to Nosal who got a nice bump if he does have a good season. Right, right. Yeah. You don't you? Don't wanna take the chance of Garrett gonna be actually this bad all the time. Now, you're stuck with a contract. He's right. But now, it's Severino. Interesting to he's a question, Mark. I'm able he I mean, he did it extended. But it's it's different. I mean, he was infant than if he hit the freed more, right? All right. So what according get Corbin got one forty right something like that. So right around that I would guess based off this probably some like some like how tough to say because no one hits the free agent market after two or three years in the major leagues. So that's why it's really tough to project, but it is imperative they lock judge and shin in not even get close to freeze eggs deal with that exiled another guy who's out there. They're so free in south there. Craig Kimble's, one of them prang is Red Sox. Then we're talking about Barnes. They're closer. So please give me that. But at the same like, I agree because it would make them worse. This year, not half him, but them DEM giving him a massive six year contract would be also hilarious would hurt him down the road. But there's more worried about this year, right? So Scott Graham, ask how much consideration to you put in the sun in kaikal? This point a doubt decent. Kyko is better than at least CC in at least one or two pitchers. Gonna go down Tessie out of the pen have Kyko in the five spot. Barry, very unlikely. I would say I like cockles game because he's a ground ball pitcher. And he's he kinda revamped his game. So he's gonna try. He's gonna age. Well, he's already up. He's up there in his thirties. But he's gonna be fine for two three years. Like he would survive in Yankee Stadium. I think he'd be okay. How much would give them? I give him a two year deal can get out of there with thirty million. Yeah. I think something similar hap-. Right thirty. I think we could. I mean, would you have? No, I don't think I mean, we're like automatically then, you know, soon. There's no injuries in spring training who's out of the rotation. Right. I mean, see see like I'm out of sleep. But I don't want that. But I think if they were more concerned with his heart. I think he's good now through us interest simulated game believe it was both simulated and all went well. I think if they were more concerned with his health than they would have pursued cycle they still coat he still out there. But I don't think it's as big of a deal. I do not see the happening. And the last one is from MAC Steinberg. We always he's got some good DM's that we think max timer glut. We probably have sent him assured at some point can you guys name a list of former Yankees that you were going to roof that you guys are rooting for some former Yankees that you don't want to do. Well, I'm putting on my list of players. I wanna play terrible and Fowler and Sheffield. I want to do. Well. Yeah. We've always said ruined a dozen Fowler. Chef obviously, you know came on the show. We definitely want him to do. Well, he had a pretty good spring training start. He looked very very good who don't want to do. Well, I don't know. Yeah. Means a met canot. So right. Yeah. Do one in the failed. August is been on spring training will begin just refund won't not for fun. But we took the Mets and in in midseason form. So they hit grand slam at tied to take the lead in six innings electric and they're down to in the night. They scored a run ready to cut the one and is a man on first and second one out ramble has the second baseman Raja. Davis has pinch running. He's he pitch it to he's running the second. And he goes the slides slides out of baseball. And so the throat the double play throw to end the game goes wild and the run scores title game. We were going nuts. They called interference in the game. End the date seven classic dislike. We're back the mobile. This is baseball betting. Go already canot and Justin Wilson 'cause they're both Matt's. He got killed Walsum. He looked terrible. I don't I I don't know. I'm I'm trying to think of former Yankees around the league drawing a blank. Yeah. Refer fowler. Swells is out there. I don't know getting think sunny great Andrew mccutchen short Sony guide. I want to do. Well. Yeah. I mean that will they'll be disaster. If he though if you went to sell young, very bad yet. But mccutchen for sure I'll always from cousin almost he's always on the Red Sox. But these are Phillies do well. I like Bryce Harper team Portnoy guy, and I always root against the Mets and the Phillies are good fucking team. That's divisions that divisions going to be David. Are you Dave Robertson Yemi ended? He ended terms weird with that whole dividing the locker room with the whole range, and so really him a little less and also kind of like they they chose to being over him. The right decision. But he did so much for us that like, I know you can't against Iraq. But from but not going to be, you know, giving up a home run gonna smile or not. Not I I'll do whatever if Sonny Greg is a grand slam probably gonna last like exactly what about Shane Robinson you run from. Yeah. I hope he becomes an MVP of funny of believable, she robs. Campbell you hid himself in the face. Like, not even like a glance. It was a line drive off his bat into his face. It was incredible. Sugarcane baby. He's electric sugar shape. Who else is there really trying to reliever probably missing someone super obvious, obviously. Oh, Todd Frazier met mountain. After Neil Walker will only Walker. Yeah. Where'd he end up? Why don't wanna say pirates? No. He was from the while. I was in Tampa Neil Walker which is also refer him no matter where on the Marlins. He's harmless. Yeah. From him becoming of the gopher stolen Castro. I was lying. I always refer them. I think I mistakenly said he's gonna have three thousand heads a couple years ago. He's on pace he was on pace for it star cash having three things wrong enough. Yeah. If it's a long Jebby stamp question. This point until you stay if he plays long. He's productive enough. Does do enough Curtis Granderson? She's applying. Yeah. Think is I regretted. He's on. That's are you sure you still playing. I'm almost certain he signed deal brewers. Oh, yeah. Over for. Yeah. That's the Marlins now he's others. Knows the Marlins right pup. The Marlins really aren't as the keys of south jeeter Passat a cow. We didn't talk about Pettit. Coming choosing the inky over the Marlins. I made a joke initially when they said that was like jeeter must be so mad. He actually did reach out and try to get some of. Gonna get Clements Matsui. He takes sue piss all we can't take Maddie's. He won't do it. He already like an adviser. He works out some of the guys. But yeah, pet having petted is great as paxton's going to paxton's the idol in the guy. He liked craft his game. After is Andy that so I think I think they talked the when he signed or before you sign. Sounds cool. Yeah. Paddock a gut had. We'll pick off everybody. The number one pick off. They're not opposed to it. Other news notes, we're down spring training. Sick. We've said this before but yet with their if you're down there to hit us up slotted it ever will will tell you where rats we can grab or something like that. But it will be down. There. Friday will get in their late Thursday night, very late. And then we're going to work fries or Sunday doing as much as we can player in of us, whatever, you know. I think I came up the idea we're have gopro with us. We'll do like some sort of four minute five minute video to recap it all I'm sure you're gonna try and get you driving on the highway. Now, we're not trying that rental car. You fucking nuts. People don't know Tommy's never driven on the highway. Do you want? Explain. I think that's really it. Will right? You're wise your fear of it. Yeah. Well, I'm not really could've driver. I get distracted easily. I think my ankle gets tired from down the gas pedal for too long. I've just never really needed to. So I've just never done on a highway in driver's, Ed. The day was supposed to learn it was snowing then just didn't and how old older. Twenty two unbelievable. If you down Tampa, head us up. We'll hang out it'd be awesome a few redone. That's that's cool. But dick fucking week pretty much not to like hype it up pride big as we have my. I mean, not you've done you've done some really cool ship, but I never down the drain before in like, we're working at now. So like probably big as weekend my life coming up like I'm pretty fucking. I'm very that just made me feel pressure. I mean, I just really haven't done much like this is very very cool. Fact, I'm working like we're going for training like not for fun. But I mean, it isn't like we're working. It's very very cool. So that's Showtime can't drive on the highway will about peer pressure. The problem work that. Okay. That's shelf. We'll see next week later. Hey, this is Casey Smith. Thank you for enjoying the barshop podcast network. As reward for making it to the end of the show.

The Yankees Must Play Better vs AL East Competition - Friday 5s

"The baseball season go go it's nonstop relentless for every night six straight months and then hopefully another month in october you also have work friends family and a million other things going on.

We are breaking down all aspects of yankee baseball. This is the bronx pinstriped. Show with your host angel. Rotundi and scott ryan. Let's go what's up everybody. Welcome to friday. Five addition of bronx pinstripe show episode. Five hundred fifty two. We are recording. After the little league shortened doubleheaders. The yankee split with the with the toronto blue jays or the buffalo blue jays formerly dunedin blue jays split the double header lost the series and mendoza with perhaps the worst home. And all time history says. It's gary sanchez raw. Water chugging locomotive around the base floor. Gary sanchez is sitting. There like really really really slow death gary you could see. He was like slow down. He's like. I never go first to home that the most i do is i two thirds. The ball's gonna be where it's gotta be around here somewhere. There's no possible way that i'd eat the ball here unless it disappeared. Gary must've been thinking. Maybe all the outfielders fell down. And that's why getting the sent home. So i'm going to go into my trot and men was he out like he was four steps past their base when the ball was in the catcher's mitt a his mind wouldn't be a play at the plate right like not going to be close if he's sending me. There's a reason he's sending me from first base. Well he wouldn't do that. They know who i am. That went obviously was was a terrible send even even It's not worth it even when you're up in your stride attack on iran two outs. This is not worth it because he had no chance. The judge got sent. I think it was the first inning of the second game on a An geo hit. And i actually liked the sand. Even though that he was out he was out with a bang bang play. I saw made a nice nice relay play. I liked that send because the yankees have just struggled so mightily scoring runs that opportunity to score two runs on one. Hit like it's even in my mind that was worth the risk. Even though it didn't work out yeah and that's fine many times. That's what happens right and it doesn't work out. It doesn't have to work out all the time for it to be the right thing to do. So i agree with that. I liked the sand on that. Maybe he got a little cocky after that one even though he was out but it was close. He's like he was close so which we could do that again. Maybe this time. I'll be right and beat them by a second. It's gary sanchez by bad and talking to bruneta talking to in the in the in the dugout with With a vk car nevin was still out on the covid covid list. I tweeted out. That was never been blind. Of course everyone. So cruise mode dozer utah mass moron. You moron we do not know why this chapman did not close out the game He has he's sick. he has the flu. I heard it Her boone talking about. He's not feeling well. Hope tweeted out. When did when did boone talk about that. It was no. It wasn't boone tweeting. It was not. It was hoped who tweeted it out. God get that correct. Okay thank goodness i. I have not been on twitter since the game ended. So okay. that's fine. No yeah yeah. We're not we're not. We're literally recording. While they're doing their post game Their postgame interview so we are not listening to that. I saw tweak. He said he's been sick the last two days. And this was from. Aaron boone before we get to the to the five takeaways. What do you think of the fuck out to chance. Still going strong achey stadium. Let me tell you about that. Yankee stadium is one thing but they were happening at the garden on in game. One knicks versus atlanta hawks. They brought it out at the garden. There's a video of assad on twitter. It made me happy. New york is alive. First of all major from. I am not a knicks fan. I grew up in new jersey nets. Fan i kinda fell off a basketball The nba and i did not start. The did not follow the brooklyn. They kinda did an f you to the the new jersey. I didn't appreciate and i just. I don't know. I just stopped following basketball. But i gotta tell you the i got some major fomo when i am watching the garden. Just look like it's about to explode with energy because those guy that that building was Was was live and yes. There was a fuck out true to h at madison square garden during game. One of the next first playoff game and shit out of that. The interesting thing about that is like nick. The knicks are the unique team in new york. Where mets and yankees and jets and giants fans come together and root for the same squad. So that was just everyone's on the same page like yeah. We all hate the astros. Obviously so fuck out to. Let's just let's just chat that in basketball game has no no application here but why not because right and then the next night they they they they come out with a tray. Balding trae is balding was in tears. It's a mazo. I wouldn't rank up there with uber uber. Trouble for the uber. Chandu over a guys everybody to make a little extra cash. It was a it was a good chat. It was not mallon. There was no malice intended. It was just giving a guy a hard time and it was. It was beautiful The the chant is all well and good when you're leading late in the game. But i also heard it the other night when the yankees were losing late and again that's just frustration and see that one can be that one can be used in both ways. Actually did you see the video of the dodgers. Were playing at the astros. this weekend. There was that i forget what they called. Hand tone yet. They're they're they're like a big group. Yeah big group like bp crew. Like i've i've very proud of the crowds. We've been able to get in right field but the pan tone grew travels and they've been doing it for a long time and they specifically stadium remember. They got that giant These zip thing together. I found out later. Because i was asking some of some of the guys. You know how they got the thing in there and apparently that that the flag was brought in by multiple people and they zipped together genius could and they had to get it right to. They had to piece it together. You know that could go. You got you got half an l. over there you've got an aa over there. It's like it's all they appreciate that because we because we we smuggled in what five hundred hundred rally towels out to pay off the giving them out to people outside of the stadium here you wanna take fifteen in cool. Yeah just checks back fourteen and they did they ever. They were being passed around. It was beautiful. Okay getting towels. Let's get to the takeaways from this week. Bad week for the yankees not just in the winds and loss column but for the injury front and this one sucks corey kluber. He leaves the game on tuesday after he was like. Fifty fifty eight pitches or thirty. Whatever it was. It was early in the game shoulder. Fifty seven pitches he shoulder. It was we just knew shoulder issue and he was getting getting. Mri show turns out sub scapula strain in his rotator cuff. Kluber said he didn't feel pain and it was not the same thing that he experienced last year in texas which ended his season. But boone said miss at least eight weeks because it's going to be four weeks without throwing an enough to ramp back up again. This is to me strikes me as they're going to see how he heals over the next four plus weeks but this could very easily end his season. If this rehab does not go well yeah definitely it. Could maybe his career sure amid depending on how much you know. This guy wants to battle backer. He just throw no hitter in his last start. So it's kind of a tough pill to swallow that your your career is over after that you know i. I would assume that he would want to make another make another go at it but Yeah it's unfortunate really is because obviously we know he threw a no hitter. He was really throwing. Well is last few times out like turned a corner and really figured it out found his groove so this is extremely unfortunate and you know the good news i guess is that he did not feel much you know was not the same as last year which is positive i guess and he described it as you know not being able to really loosen up. He was just very tight. And so you know the it's a strain. Which could heal fine and just rams back up and it's just a matter of time and and like no harm no foul here or it could be something that lingers and and and you know comes back and bites him again but so the elephant in the room is did the no hitter effect this. Because it's very odd coincidence right you throw a no hitter and then the next time out you get to no hitter out of it would if it was a three. He threw one hundred games. Would you be saying that hundred pitches. No of course. Of course it's the same thing. And it was one hundred one pitches. And if he threw threw that over seventy two third. No one's like he means it's a cool. It is not always. It's not always number of pitches at stress of pitches like we've heard that a lot and the stress of him trying to pitch a no hitter is a lot more than him. Throwing a hundred pitches over seven innings in a five run bogging. Well why it's the same. It's the same exact. it's literally the same after ocean. So i know. I know you haven't listened to the savage brundage episode yet and i keep going back to this but my eyes were opened and that episode like he had so much. Good information in there. He's talking about like basically effort value that these that these players are exerting on every swing on every pitch every play. But how do you distinguish effort value in a major league baseball game while you're out there competing when it's your job between one because of one outcome or another outcome if you're still in the game to me that's not a different effort at all. It's still a major league pitch a major league inning. That you're throwing yes. There's a a a no hitter at stake but at the end of the day. Like if you start doing different things than you're you're probably not going to have the no hitter extra effort or extra stress on that because stress like literally. Mental stress can affect this too. And there's more mental stress when you're trying to pitch a no hitter than when you're just trying to pitch a five run game. I l listen. I'm scientists know scientists. I'm no doctor if anything Professor historian so. I can't speak for certain on it but you're saying it's a little bit of a winky dink all right second second look. Back is another unfortunate strain here. We're talking strange. We're getting the. Mri machine warmed up again. In two thousand and twenty one. apparently look void again. Oblique their grade two oblique strain and this is something where he felt. Sort of feeling discomfort on saturday and you know. Obviously void went down with that sports hernia. This is a grey to strain which doesn't mean that it ruptured yet great three would-be severe strain in which the muscle actually ruptures. Which is a sports hernias when the muscle ruptures similar. You know the new bone is connected to the thighbone type thing only. This is the oblique in the abdomen or relatively close in proximity. I would think that a lot of the same emotions swinging a bat. Lot of torque in the midsection. Apparently he's got a y. Midsection didn't his wife have a baby this weekend. He didn't have a baby. His voight said his wife didn't his wife have a baby this weekend. I thought lemay who had a baby. Oh okay that's what it was and voice headed there soon. Lemay you okay. What does that have to do with anything. He didn't have a bb. His wife had a baby to why does his abdomen viruses. Oblique get effected. If there's a baby come coming out of his wife listen. You're gonna come back to stress stress stress. I was a swing because of the baby. The hospital bench. I slept on for three nights is not very comfortable. I feel like that's not good for the leaks. I gotta tell you. I slept in a hospital bed for many many night for the past few years. And i think they're actually relatively comfortable bench though there. Yeah it's a it's a pad on a window so is what it is like the right safe. You're laying this way. The right side of us freeze to death. The left side of you is burning up. Yeah i think they're i think they're comfortable. You gotta get. Do you like a firm mattress firm mattress. Otherwise my back is hurting in the morning. Yeah so that's thinking maybe a void so his wife has not has not delivered yet. But i was thinking to. Floyd spent a night in the hospital. Then maybe maybe. That's why he He's like principled practicing the the pushing and it didn't go well for him. The llamas breath mama's we didn't get. Did you do a lamont's class. No no we didn't there was no because everything was shut down for covert. We didn't do any. We did everything online. You know what. We're not doing that because this is a little different. Every that's true you you guys are not going through that bullshit to we We did everything online. And i was like kind of like felt. I just felt so unprepared. I know everyone feels unprepared. Like we just did everything online. Like having a human. You can't possibly learn what you need to learn over zoom. Anyway i got. I got number. Three is going to be a guessing game for you. Okay i want to know where you think. Aaron judge ranks in some key offensive categories in major league baseball. His wrc plus coming into the second game of the doubleheader was a hundred and seventy two. Where do you think that ranks in major league baseball. One hundred is league average. Seventy two percent above league average. I have i have picked up I have picked that up over over this time that we started talking about advanced analytics I don't know that sounds really good. I'd say it's like you know. We talk a percentage as your top numbers or what just number. I'll give you a top ten percent of the league ten percent on no don't do top ten of the top ten. It's sixteen very close. His way on base average is four. Nineteen where do you think that ranks For nineteen. i'd say that that is that sounds that's top seventh. he's got thirteen home runs. He hit another one in the second game. Where do you think that ranks think. Vlad has what fifteen or sixteen so. He's top five is tied for fifth. And he's got twenty eight rb is where do you think that ranks on. It's not high. I think vlad had forty in his last at bat. I think i saw so judges tied for fortieth. Rbi's and rb is. We have basically been pooh-poohed by the analytics community over the tell. You a story. They i'll tell you and they know what they've done. Leadoff guys can can have big numbers but there are usually not high. Because there's nobody on base. So i think that what it also does. Is it tells you a story of of the team as well and not just the player because judge ranks top fifteen all those other advanced metrics categories yet. He hasn't driven in a lot of runs. And of that is he's missed some opportunities. But part of that is he hasn't had the opportunities van graphs has also a clutch statistic. This is not new. But i do appreciate the call. It clutch used to be called leverage. I thought it was always called leverage but now that now it's called clutch. I've been hearing about this clutch. That i think we're in seattle is tweeting about it. The other day as well. I thought the nerves believing clutch narrowly now sudden believing in clutch nerds notified clutch. Because here's how it is described on the fan grass website. It is clutch is a measure of how much better or worse a player does in high leverage situations than he would have done in a context neutral environment. The okay so they're comparing the two situations leave though. That's exactly what we do except we just do it less analytically. Its original news okay. So they take the numbers of of of non quote leverage situations or nobody on base. Nobody on base. Okay and then what is judge. Do data wise collect all the data on low leverage situations or context neutral leverage. So not lote not low leverage not high leverage neutral. What those situations are fifth inning Three run game one guy. Maybe that's a context neutral or maybe it's a lot of a-rod home runs for convex neutral. Maybe that's an a-rod shirt maybe neutral. Maybe a first inning. Nobody on based judge up one out. Maybe that's context neutral. What is doing all those situations and how does he do. In high leverage compared to those context neutral situations j.lo's a lot about those contract conduct context neutral situations right now without so judge so the scale zero like everything else. In the analytics community is league average. The then to is excellent and minus two is awful so it's not really a giant scale. It's kind of like going to the decimal point here again. Zero is average. Aaron judge so far. This year has a clutch statistic of point zero nine so not quite above average but slightly slightly above average. But he's career. Can i finish for his career minus three point zero five. Interestingly that that's just regular season yet just regular season interesting to see what does the post season does oppose season. Does the postseason affect these situations. Do they all become more high leverage. That i is a three run game in the fifth inning and the postseason not as high levered not as doug context different than it would be a july game. No because i think you're comparing it. You're not comparing it to a. You're not comparing that situation to a july game. You're comparing it high leverage to no leverage in the postseason it's all relative to within the circumstance will then there's not enough sample size to actually get any kind of no. I don't think they're they have unless you have like derek jeeter postseason reference for four playoff series does wpa win probability added. That's an interesting statistic as well. Okay so We're saying that he's not clashes at what they're trying to tell me. I mean this year has been slightly above clutch a little above okay. Fine but career-wise no. I don't believe them. Two thousand seventeen was actually the only year he was negative actually two thousand and eighteen. He was negative as well but thousand and seventeen. He was minus three point six year that he didn't win the ep to mistrial today. So i take what you want from it. I just wanted to play guessing game with you one. Is you read number. I pretty much dominated the guessing game by the way you all right so number three here. The one sixty one noise number four number. Four as. That's what i said. Number four. The one sixty one boys pose an interesting question. Is this the last. That we've seen of aaron hicks. He is only in the second year of a seven year. Deal with a buyout in one thousand nine hundred ninety six. That is that is in five years ago did you. So we have the the The list of injuries you have out here like a like a menu alicarte two thousand seventeen multiple was thousand seventeen or an eye. I think that was a deal was not sorry. I was being politically and you have d. l. stinks with with with with oblique with oblique injury. I think you meant stints. But you wrote stinks. Two thousand eighteen intercostal muscle strain two dozen nineteen right flex restrain in elbow. Ron burgundy tommy. John surgery and nineteen is a the rest surgery and the the sac around his wrist is no good and he will miss the rest of the year. I don't think it's the last. We've seen aaron hicks because he's got so much more time on this contract but ever use destined to be a fourth outfielder though every year. It's something with this is gonna be a fourth outfielder. You know it's like he's gonna he's gonna leave as he came in a fourth outfielder a guy that played a lot he was a fourth and when i first came over remember. How many about us to get used to get so many. I feel like he was practically playing. You know five days a week and he he's gonna i don't know what the holiest can to stop playing golf number one. He's he needs to get his arm strength back. That's just a joke. And then he's two years old he's not could've miraculously get better and healthier when he's thirty two years old he's he's a i mean. Look i think. I think we all understood. A lot of people hated that contract from the beginning of like this long. So there's an immediate immediate target on that on that contract right like immediately. It's very easy to hate that contract. Unless you're love. Aaron hicks as a player. And you're like man we gotta deal. This was a this was definitely an opportunity to lock up guy for a long time with a very controlled. Amount of money was ten million bucks right. It was around there. There's ten million a year but you're locking up a guy who's always injured for a long time. I have nothing against aaron hicks. The player when aaron hicks is on the field. He's actually a pretty valuable player. yes he was when he's on the field and right. What is bad this year. Who's bad this year but go look at his playing time in seventeen eighteen. Nineteen and twenty. He was a plus defender when he was on the field. He was good but just not on the field far too often. So i don't like giving seven years no matter how much dollars it is to a guy that doesn't get on the field. Yeah no for sure. I think especially the way. The contracts have become for guys like aaron hicks. The ten million is actually very high right now when you look around the league look guys are getting and who knows what it'll be. Aaron hicks his all around the league. Getting fade yes. Correct that i mean. That's exactly what's happening. But i think back when he signed the contract it wasn't. They saw a potential long-term center fielder and they saw bargain is what they saw and they thought it was worth. What happened brian. Cashman was hoping that hicks would stay healthy for a few years and he would get a bargain. Because that's the gamble. That's the gamble. Is that you get past the injuries. And then all of a sudden you have a very good deal on a on a good center fielder. So i look. I don't hate the risk in all honesty because apparently everybody in this league gets hurt now. So you're going to have to take risks on some guys and at that one. Yes it's a long contract. Taking risks is that are less risky. But it's like the same thing with paxson. You traded for james paxton a guy who's always injured and guess what he got injured like you know there's no doubt been takes risks in. They don't usually work out. Okay number five today. I looked up in game two. They made some moves all of a sudden. We got a specimen who's taking over for said. Aaron hicks in centerfield esteban. Floreal talked about him last week. with macos he has risen from aa to aaa and now in the majors. Cut all this coming right whether it was going to be an opportunity. He's gonna get up. I have a feeling. I mean if i haven't checked the the transactions yet oh hold on got one two minutes ago. Let's see what it was. He sent down already because they're second. This is exactly what i'm looking for up. That's the scranton game report. This one is the post game and you pulled the mike francesa right now. Sorry sorry. This is very entertaining radio. I'm guessing i was supposed to get sent back down at some point because this was probably going to be friday. Yeah very very. It was an opportunistic call up but he did smoke a double into the gap. And you know what will get you staying up here. Smoking a double into the gap and look in the way you look because the guy looks the part i mean. He looks like a freaking athlete. He really does. He fits the bill. So he's he's he's such a mean you remember the florio height from from when he was healthy like this guy was very five tool guy that was coming up and you know. Does everything want in a center. Fielder esteban floreal. Is that guy. He he needs to mature at the plate. There's no doubt about it. He needs to continue to develop and become more selective and just have better plate discipline. Like that's the big knock on him but that said at this point right now similar to the way that they are with With the with the pitching staff where they can have some additional patients with With with some guys. They're maybe not anymore because clippers out but It's almost the opposite for the for the offense. 'cause you just down to nobody elta producing so you might as well might as well try them out yet. So giancarlo is going to be activated this weekend. And and that's kind of i. Guess one of the look ahead says john carlos stanton's gonna be activated. Got a couple things here and and so we can just do it right now as we talk about. Floreal does this. You're breaking the script. I'm breaking this. Does it make sense to keep floreal up and send four down for a little while or does it make more sense to be or just just because right now floral and garner the only to set of guys. Play centerfield tyler. Wade play center field. But i don't know if they want to start tyler wade and center. No they just so as soon as you activate giancarlo stanton and he's just a d. h. Unless you're going to do some sort of rotation with judge in right field and stanton and right field because also sidebar. Aaron judge hitting a lot better when he's a little bit more. Have you noticed that. He's having a phenomenal season. So it's fine. But what i'm saying is do you wanna maybe try and get judge moore time by rotating with stanton and right so that means you're getting stanton the field though which they're not going to do so but they're not going to keep them healthy anyway. So who freaking cares. Look i yeah. I think that Immediately when i saw that florida was coming up. Okay this is. This is a double header. Saying probably gonna get returned right back. They have not announced that That transaction as of right now as we're recording ten fifteen on thursday evening that said he did. Smoke a double underlined field on the the ball. That was that's where gary got thrown out by fifty feet at home at home plate. All they gotta do show all these do show a glimpse of something and they're like. Oh that's better than what we have. That guy can play better defense than what we have. That guy's younger than what we have. They might as well keep him in. Let them play. Mike four freaking black hole right. I don't know what my ford gives you at this point you have. Andrew are who is a really doesn't have position you can play. He's he's played find in left field. He could play first base. He's okay over there to been. He's been fine he can. He could play first base. Get more over there and and then yeah so your ford becomes a guy that you really don't need at this point. He's not producing it any way you might as well get him down. Get him some more consistent at bats and give florio and opportunity he might. He might actually be a vast improvement. What you currently have any worse. He legitimately cannot be any worse. He headed the today. He go over thirty. I've heard i heard. He had a double eddie sanchez. Got thrown out by fifty yup. Yeah yeah by a long way and it was not it was not by. It was a different third base coach. In case you didn't know was it. why why. Where's their normal third base coach. Is he out of it. Yes he's got colbert. So carlos who injured their. That's their bench. Coach was was. He had an active willie randolph arm. And just sending people. But i mean you might as well. You're legitimately florio could could go over for the next three series and put up numbers. This podcast is sponsored by better help.

All right let's get to the five look head which is now four because i already did one to look ahead and it is the fact that the yankees need to start playing better against alias. Competition next week after the detroit series. They're going on a three game road trip which is weird to begin with. They play tampa and boston at home. And i think we're going to learn a little bit about this team. In those six games tampa has been on fire there in first place. Boston has been the most consistent team in the division So far this season and the yankees against good teams in the division have not played. Well there are twelve and sixteen overall in the division. And that's including the six wins. They have against baltimore so they are three and six against tampa and three and six against toronto. Their outscore being outscored pretty handily especially against tampa in those games. They've mocked up the floor with the detroit and cleveland and And all the other teams that they've sort of got back on track with but the competition aliens which is probably the best division baseball the most competitive division baseball four teams who are good the yankees of sucked against. Yeah they got a. They are playing better news though i mean they have. They started playing against the race. We thought was a good start and and now they need to handle them again. The rays are playing very good baseball. Think there Nine and one in their last ten they won eleven in a row. They won eleven interro night. They just lost two nights ago. Maybe or they beat the pulp out of toronto and then toronto came in here. And shove the bats down your throat alec. What's his name The rookie that that made his debut the prospect for toronto. I'm drawing a blank on his last name. Because it's late at night and i'm old and i can't remember names anymore. Yes as robbie. Ray pitch and impeached that well as always like right where he is right. Even matt's pitch well against the yankees even shut us. That's embarrassing yeah. The the raise crushed the blue jays pitching and the yankees didn't crush the blue jays pitching very many people's pitching so far this year. They still figure that one out but okay. we'll do. You agree that the six games that are coming with it's important. It's not make or break. But it's important they gotta break. I think it's going to tell us a little bit about this team though. I'm looking forward to playing boston. That's boston's good again. That's fun i in a game. Nice i like that. I like i like when and the is tight and and there are teams. It's more fun. it's more fun for for. I think all of us to watch. Nobody wants to see like a terrible boston team. You want beat them. Obviously but you don't want to be terrible. That is not fun. You want some competition there and You know they're they're. They're playing good baseball. So it's it's definitely a telling Era they need to keep up with With tampa they cannot let off the gas with tampa. I think that they build some confidence there. And then we'll see what happens with boston but yeah. I'm glad we're playing boston again. Nice nicely nicely. Done mostly done sketch down. Serve very good. That was a great first one number. Two here Who's gonna fill in for corey kluber spot in the rotation. Well we know the short term answer. But what is that long-term answer. Short-term david garcia is expected to join the rotation coming Playing against the detroit tigers team to be going up against But he's struggled in triple eight not not pitch and very well The other option. I guess would be what your boy michael king michael king is. He's also struggled recently. Came out went to a historic got disrespected. Every single time down and then he stays up and they keep them up when he doesn't do. Well go figure that it's pretty bizarre. Jay bruce is like what happened. Yes so der has at triple a. Are pretty ugly so far fifteen. In two-thirds innings thirteen hits nine earned runs twelve walks twelve. I mean that was his problem. Always coming up. It was the control so hopefully that doesn't become a thing again. Twelve walks in fifteen innings is unacceptable. You're not gonna live as a nature walk in that many and that's gotta be really frustrating. It's like you know when. I'm playing golf. I i thought. I got rid of the slice i. I'm i pretty much have gotten rid of it. And then sometimes it rears its ugly head. You're like oh shit. It better not be back like i can't deal without again. I cannot go through that again. that's what he's thinking. When he threw the ball over there was a problem. Did you get to so so Did you go so far with the where you'd start aiming to the woods on the left to try to slice it back into the fairway and that's when you hit it straight from it'll take out a bird. Yeah so i think short and medium term like how many how many starts are they going to give garcia. This is in a calm up. Once sent him back down and do a bullpen day. I think they're going to give garcia a little bit of a show. I think to the i mean when you look down and what he's done in scranton you're not going to say those numbers transient but he's he's been up so you know who knows he could have been working on a some. Some particular pitches as well could have been treated it like a little bit of a spring training as well. You don't know what he's doing down there. But yes i think he deserves it and i'm looking forward to it so i wanted to watch because it's we're basically in june severino is progressing. Well if so like a best case scenario for severino is all star break right. Yeah early july. July july figure seven starts out of seventy eight starts out of debt garcia before luis severino is back from that spot in the rotation for an opportunity for seventy two becoming back yet. Town sounds about right. Yeah so that's that's kind of what i'm thinking again. I think i think we're gonna. We're gonna look at severino in that rehab identify. What's happening there. You know much much closer to him returning. But you know if the rotation if david garrow goes out there and starts throwing well as and he's coming out and you know putting up some good starts for the yankees Every fifth day and severino gets it just wouldn't surprise me. It would not surprise me if they brought him along slowly and he started off you know throwing from the bullpen. One to two innings. Just wouldn't surprise me. It's just really they do on the ramp up in the minor leagues bobbing. But i assume they'll try to stretch out from the beginning the the work on that. But it's a it's all a matter of how he progresses in that way. And what about the major league level at that current time. It's so tough because kluber was you started to get the gleam the gleaner i like. Oh kluber now. This kind of changes the game on this rotation of kluber pitching like this with coal kluber one two punch and then severino coming back and now that's off the table and who knows what kluber is going to be when he comes back so there's no there there were. You may have entertained. Just working severino back as a relief pitcher but now i feel like you don't have that luxury. Well i'd say that's not true because you know go glass half full here with corey kluber. Four weeks not throwing probably gonna put them around the same timeframe severino right pretty close pretty close. Maybe a little bit behind severino if severino trends in the direction that we think he might be trending but they're going to be around that same area so glass. How full corey kluber gets two months off the arms. Not being used at that point. He's rehabbing it. He's coming back relative. If if that strain is hills well and you know he comes out of that okay. I mean he's gonna have a fresh arm in in the end of august early september. Let's go corey kluber playoffs. That's why you're here. Glass half full number three was giancarlo. Stanton weird to cover that number. Four zach britton scheduled to make rehab with the somerset patriots on saturday. And you know what. That's a good thing. Because i'm getting tired of watch. Justin wilson who stinks like x five point. Six eighty are a four point. Six to expect to the a adding zach britain back to this bullpen is going to be a much needed thing. Zag been an automatic an automatic in the In the bullpen. Really since he's been here. So yes he's he's a very welcomed addition not that that we've seen a terrible by any means. But no wilson has not been good and zach. Britain is an elite elite back at the back of the bullpen guy number five because we have diarrhea of the mouth. We already covered. Is i pasted destined to be a black hole for the new york yankees and yet it's ever since march shera so it's been done. It's like okay so we finally vote was out. He came back actually rate on time. From that meniscus everything could beautiful. It was a minister right or was it. What was it with his knee. Whatever it was and then boom this oblique thing. So are the yankees. What are they gonna do with first base. I expect lemay you to get a little bit more time at first base moving door to second base a little bit but Yeah i'm just worried. His first base a curse position for the let me tell you who. I wanna see You know i. I am done with with the mike. Ford experimented at this point. He he screwed me last year on my prediction. Dot coming back from that. Certainly not a year off Why don't we actually give a guy who has earned an opportunity up in the major leagues. I'm smelling a little. Bit of shelley duncan situation going on here chris. Gittens chris. kittens lighting up triple a. He's up. he's lit up the minus for been lighting up the minor leagues for a long time. He's been overlooked because he's an older. He's not a prospect. He's twenty seven years old been in the minor leagues for You know a hot minute and they just they have not they have not given him an opportunity be added to the forty man roster like okay get released someone like is mike farber. We still holding onto mike ford. Is that still going to be a thing. So probably but there's there's other opportunities i think to to create room but i mean look. He's a guy that can thicken hit here is right handed right. I do believe he's handed. He is he was left handed already. If handed he'd be up here hitting third already for sure. Let me ask you. Does he keep his eyes open. You swings the bat if he does that. That's a that's a really good thing to do. And this guy's this guy's hitting the ball hard everywhere he goes. I'm ready for chris. This is a guy that the yankees better get behind. This is a good story. This is this is a guy that we need up here. We need a first baseman. Let's let's fill the guy. I'm not joking here. This is like they should absolutely give a guy like chris kittens who has done everything he possibly can do to in the minor leagues to prove that he deserves an opportunity and the yankees have really nothing there at all right now. Is the voice out. They should give him an opportunity but for real. I wouldn't be opposed to that. Okay that's gonna do it for the friday fives episode. It was a little bit of a disjointed one. But i hope you guys enjoyed it anyway. We'll talk to you on monday. Hey guys thanks for listening to the bronx pinstripe. Show make sure you find us. An idea in subscribe.

Yankees Plan To Stay The Course

"Hey was good. This is cold lama. Leak aka kids and station an old friend of ken. Griffey's and i'm alex aka the producer of the show and an old baseball fan. We have a new season of american prodigy on ken. Griffey junior lost legacy. Listen wherever you get your podcast brought to you by cores. Life made the chill breaking down all aspects of yankee. Baseball is the bronx pinstripe. Show with your host. Andrew rotundi and scott ryan. Let's go what's up everybody. Welcome to the bronx pinstripe show. This is episode number five hundred and thirty six north. I'm looking forward to scott when one day harrison is old enough to understand baseball naked. Sit him down and explain to him. Listen brian cashman gave a very motivational press conference and then the yankees stole victory with a couple of walks in pass ball and some pop ups in the eighth inning against the atlanta braves and that was their turn around the two thousand twenty one yankees were looking for. It's inspiring stuff. It really is the fact that they that they completely deserve that. Victory and and yet Really really really earned it. They did a good is really discerning. Is allowed them to you know. Make sure you don't swing at the ball that's going to go pass the catcher. Make sure that you you you you take a walk which again. This is aaron. Aaron hicks strength. We we know this. Aaron hicks strength is not swinging. The bat is taking a walk is to working at count. The man did it. beautifully Clearly out of a slump and and it worked perfectly and and you're right. I think it was all it. All stemmed from not only aaron boone's closed door talking to is stern. That was a friday night and then they go. It had to had to sink in. But but brian cashman has a has a press conference. That sounds like he's addressing a jv beaten down team and and clearly they they they took it you know and they and they understand that. They are all in this together so just motivational motivational stuff. But do you wanna read the quotes from cash. I do because this is today. We're gonna be talking about a little bit about that That walk the clearly beautiful victory from last night but also brank cashman press conference because this has been the topic of the show. Quite often right. We've you've you really take a lot. What he what he says in the past with Very literally very literally. I think and i've i've tried to temper expectations with you and sometimes i've tried to walk you off the cliff because i think he gets you very frustrated and i know that and maybe he understands that that it does and that's why he's kind of shifted tone. 'cause the tone was different. Tone was exactly to be expected. Ll go you read the quotes. All right brian cashman. Here's this is This is brian cashman addressing the the new york yankees. Jv roster as as a sitting down just completely bewildered reacting to how how to shake up a roster to quickly. I don't see us in the staff and and the players that we have that's our message to the players we believe in you. We know what you're capable of this a bad stretch and you know what guys we're going to get through this together. This is an us versus them. This is collectively. All of us. Were wearing this together including me guys. I want you to go out there and give it your give it your best and let's just make sure that we're having fun and you're supporting each other and if we come out with a victory well let's be happy and smile and walk into the clubhouse and be excited to go to the next day and maybe just maybe we can carry a little bit of momentum. It doesn't matter how we win. Let's just win. let's go guys. Let's go you know when you watch. Like ninety s sitcom rerun like full house or family matters or something like that and then they have a big moment with the family and everyone gets together and then the audience collectively goes oh. That's what would happen after those. Brian cashman comments if there was an audience of vengeance media members on zoom who has just been a big. Oh you're exactly right. And i'm gonna make sure that donald play some music behind me talking through that quote right now after. He said his knee. Zik some nice. I need some some full house you know. Get a painter. Danny tanner to talking to To dj after after you know a boy broke her heart. There's gonna be a lesson there. There's going to be a lesson in there and that's what this says. There was a lesson to be learned. And by by. Gosh these guys are gonna learn that lesson and that is also being the bet not the bat. You actually win the game if you don't swing the bat we're we're making fun of this because if anyone thought this press conference was going to be anything other than what it was in a couple of announcements on some injury news and and stuff like that they just haven't been following the yankees and hal. Brian cashman is operated for a decade. Plus he does not overreact. Certainly he's not going to react strongly to fifteen games into a season. I understand fifteen out of one. Sixty two is not a lot. You understand that. Everyone understands that everyone who can do simple math which is not everybody. Yes blair spare the the twitter replies that it's early i know it's early okay. Thank the team has looked horrendous. This is the worst stretch worst start to a season. I can remember in a long long time especially when you consider. This team's expectation is world series or bust. This isn't a. Let's see how the season goes. Maybe we can be in contention. Come september this is a world series or bus roster and this is how you come out of the gate. Flat mental mistakes airs no production with runners on base runners in scoring position. Bad at-bats bad. Starting hitting home runs the thing that you're supposed to be doing by far the best. Yeah like questionable. Questionable moves all around like the roster. Everything has been bad so but if you if you thought that brian cashman was going to get on zoom and announced marcus teams was fired or aaron. Boone was fired or there was going to be some sweeping changes. You have had your head in the sand. Because that's not how they've been operating now. I did think. I did think there was going to be a move announced. Because whilst would you announce zoom or schedule a zoom. I thought maybe they were making a more significant roster decision than calling up mike ford or tyler wade to replace jay bruce but as it turned out what what were you. What were you potentially thinking there is. There's not very many moves to be made choir acquiring someone or signing someone. I i just because i was just trying to wrap my head around. Why would they schedule a press conference like what's the point if all you're announcing a few things like you can do that through twitter. Which is what they normally do. Roster moves so that was going to be something a little bit more but as it turns out cash wanted to take the opportunity because he knew combined was monday wasn't often so monday was an off day. They just got swept at home by the race. Look terrible he knew he was going to be bombarded with questions from media like hey. Why is your team sucks. So bad so he just wanted to get them all on a room. A room virtual room together and address all the questions at once. And that's why he scared with the press conference but if you thought boone was getting fired if you thought teams getting fired. It's i'm sorry like go. Go go look what happened with this team over the last ten fifteen years and also firing your manager not that that was ever on in the cards but firing your manager. Fifteen games into the season is basically saying we give up right well. It's totally different for this one. I mean it is not on the never never on the table with this regime. Because brian cashman is now linked with aaron boone. So we've talked about this with contracts expiring. In the next couple years they need successor. Cashman needs success with boon to because he brought him in no experience. That was a big risky move. Firing the guy who was a couple of out away from the world series with a team that was not supposed to even be close to that deposition and bringing in a guy with literally zero experience that's ever managed ever in his life yet. Now you're connected to that guy. That's a risky move. So now you need to do everything possible behind you to to have him win. Because it's both of you now. Did i ever tell this on the podcast member. I read that klapisch book the empire. Yeah he it. Part of that book talks about how aaron boone was hired in the interview process. And how impressed they were and one of the examples they use. Is that one of the quizzes that they give the managers is they just presented them with statistics with no names instead. Fill out the lineup card. Based on these statistics and apparently arab who got eight out of nine right according to yankees nerds that was the highest score and klapisch wrote in the book. That was one of the big takeaways from aaron. Boone interview was that he. He passed the nerd quiz. Yeah that's that's that's something. So i mean i do think that they know analytics. Walking into that and aaron. Aaron boone gives you the answers that you want to hear quite often. He's that he's a media guy. He probably knows that they're he definitely knows that. They're looking at this analytical approach. They're literally getting rid of joe girardi. Who's definitely a different style manager. So he's giving the answers that they know that they're they're they want to hear. It's it's like it's like already having the The answers to attest mocking at and being surprised that you did well in the test. So what would you have like a casteran to have done. I didn't think there was anything to be done either. I didn't know what the press conference was going to be about. I i certainly You know didn't expect any big moves like you said that's not what they do. Even a even a hitting coach in the middle of the season. I'm not sure what that's going to do for this team if they if they bail on anybody right now. It's egg on their face. It looks like they're they didn't prepare the correct way in the off season. No one's going to say that not now. At least no one's gonna say that. So a pet peeve of mine people thinking firing a hitting coach really can do anything like what does the hitting coach really gonna do for. Aaron judge giancarlo stanton aaron hicks. These guys are veterans of baseball who have been established in the major leagues. Like they're either going to necessarily because because there are the hitting coach can can certainly pick up on small mechanical issues or small little tweaks. That can make a difference as not only marcus teams doing that. There's enough people about the yankees that see. That are hours and hours of footage of these guys swing. A bat are doing that. Maybe marcus thames one communicating to them. But but firing. Marcus teams is not going to snap these guys out of slump. That's foolish thing wasn't robbed. Kino's dad who who had fixed swing a couple of times like watching robbie's knows dad was maybe the one who got all the steroids but he was the one who through to him in the home run derby. Yeah but he also definitely helped him with a swing. You know if you just by watching. You could tell us about certain things. So i i do. Think that if you have the familiarity with a guy and marcus. Thames has been with the organization for a long time and he came up with a lot of these guys to like. He's been around these guys for a very long time. So there's a report there. So i don't look i think the hitting coaches and you know you good on the line with the coaches you could. You could probably say that it's overblown You know there are specific role with each individual player. And and you're saying because they have all of these guys in the and the data and the and the film and all these things. But it's important to have that person that you trust as a consultant to work with you one-on-one about certain things and the way to go about fixing certain things and i think that back and forth from the report and conversation just identifying certain things and having a trust with someone is important but that said like. There's there's not much to. There's not much that's that's happening clearly. That's changing approach at all. There's no approach change here. It's just a matter. Look if that had down and and just power through this eighth inning. Last night they load the bases with nobody out. And what was their approach at the plate like dandelion up three times. Yes you got a pop up from frazier. You gotta pop up from glacier in a pop up from Gary sanchez and if it weren't for a pass ball and a walk they're not scoring a run there so i look at the approach and there was no less his. Try and lift the ball to the deep part of the outfield. Let's try to make contact. Hit the ball the other way. No no that it's still. I want to be the hero in headed into the bleachers and get the grand slam and then get the curtain call for the nine thousand five hundred people in the stadium. Because i don't wanna get booed because they've been doing my ass all game so keep trying to hit for home runs than than didn't see what happens because you're either gonna pop out or strikeout if you're not connecting perfectly i. Yeah i don't understand it the to me if i'm a guy that's struggling as well. I'm cutting things down on going back to some basic mechanical xs and os here and just today coach. Marcus tim's oppressed shouldn't sit down and be like. Hey let's let's break it down here. You need to start. Yes back through the zone player. That kind of stuff. It's like a golf swing when you when you when you realize that you are just completely screwed right. And i'm sure it happens to every one of us because no-one no-one listening to this show or on the show is is You know professional golfer and probably even a scratch. Maybe there's a few but the majority of people in the world are bad golfers at the end of the day whether they want to admit it or not but if you can simplify and even take things back like as a bad golfer i can start to hit it straight a little bit if i just don't i just go squared a square and i limit my back swing and like essentially putt my driver. You know i'll go one hundred and seventy five yards dead straight and i can do that practically every time. Choke up and just like do a half swing. I can get the ball down there. It's because you're just. You're trying to simplify your taking out a lot of the things that that gets. You messed up in the first place and you can certainly do that with a baseball. Swing especially with these guys the Batta batta ball skills as being a professional hitter. But it doesn't doesn't look like anybody besides your shallow or detail. Who who's doing that. But i don't understand that what you shoot this twenty forty forty six after two seven. I put up in the beginning to sevens in the beginning. That's a nice comeback by you. Nice comeback it was because he was playing with. Got cocky and gave me tried to give me a putt that i refused. How long was the putt. How dare you. How dare you try to give me a putt. Putt but we don't give each other. That's when we play. We play nine holes on early wednesday mornings and he you know he was playing. He was playing well through the first couple of holes. Got a little cocky started talking about it. I saw the writing on the wall. And then he tried to give me a putt. Now's like not taking that. Goddamn kids hit cuts for granted tonight. I'm not taking that put on. Not no i'm not taking up. I'm not picking it up because you don't want to give him the pot and it will get an whole no. I knew what he was doing that. He was getting cocky and just like giving me something because he was winning at that point. Did you make the putt. I made the pot. And then i kicked his ass for the rest of the nine holes because he got cocky in the gulf god's came down and smack them. That's what happened. Not sure about you. But i'm taking a rain check on spring cleaning this year freshen up for the season with comfort. Instead was sheets towels lounge wear and more from brooklyn and with their birthday sale. Happening this weekend brooklyn is offering site-wide savings on all things comfort for their biggest sale of the year brooklyn was founded by husband and wife duo rich and vicky with the goal to create beautiful luxury homosexuals at prices. That do not break the bank by working directly with benefactors. They insure premium high-quality comfort every single time at a fraction of the retail price. That means ridiculously soft bedding towels. An lounge wear brooklyn is so confident. You'll love everything. They even offer a three hundred sixty five day warranty owen. They've also got seventy five thousand five star reviews and counting. It's pretty damn hard to get that. That's hard to argue with. Get everything you need for. A spring refresh during brooklyn's biggest sale of the year shop the brooklyn and birthday sale going on this weekend. And if you're listening to this podcast after the sale ends do not worry. You could still go to brooklyn dot and use promo code bronx to get twenty dollars off any purchase one hundred dollars or more that's brooklyn in dot com and enter promo code bronx to get twenty dollars off any purchase of one hundred dollars or more brooklyn and everything you need to live your most comfortable life the yet so the approach the approach thing is is definitely i mean maybe they tried to shake up the lineup. Last night hicks wasn't in the lineup. Clint frazier wasn't in the lineup. To start nail so started. Mike ford rubio. Dora set people. Acted like this was a major shakeup. I didn't consider it a major shakeup because really the only one that got benched. Quote unquote was aaron hicks because fraser's in a platoon so he just didn't start. So you benched. Aaron hicks who hitting one hundred okay. Great a real major. Well because gardner gardner play center and talk news and left he did. Yeah so therefore frazier to get bashed. But he hasn't been starting a lot anyway. I'm just saying look. I was excited when i saw that. Frazier was coming in first of all. Let's talk about a couple of things here Brune tried to give away this game. And and i don't care what people say. It's the guys have to hit. Yes i understand that the guys have to hit okay. Now that that's been said he tried to give up the game bookie coming coming back in. Oh look into the seventh inning by getting cocky to flip around. Pablo fucking sandoval. How that guy stolen the league are we. Are we serious. Are we really making decisions on. Who's going to pitch between chad green. Who's one of the best relievers in the league and look lucky. Luke says the last guy in the ball beyond the roster probably when zach britton comes back and we're getting shoot by starting the inning to flip around pablo sandoval. Get outta my face with this. Give him the inning. And oh by the way because of this. Nonsense freddie freeman. Got that that. That could have been devastating. He hit the ball hard. Luckily was right. Lemay you put. It could have been devastating and chad. Dream was in a position now where there's a runner on first. Not coming with that. Cleaning like aaron boone. Loves the do getting cute starts with getting cute. And that's exactly that anyone's blew the game because of because of that unless they he didn't the players almost blew the game because it's situations they were put it. He has consistently this year putting guys in shitty positions and positions where they they cannot succeed at their with the highest percentage of of of of success. Right whatever he's just now putting him in a good position and it's driving me nuts. He's driving me nuts more now than he's ever driven nuts. A lot of people are going back to their records. Starting in the beginning of two thousand twenty th the short season pointing to the fact that they're really only game over five hundred. I believe now with a win last night. A game over five hundred or two games over five hundred when you date back there and it gets a little messy when you when you start to span season. It gets very messy. You can't really do that. But but this team has such an opportunistic. Take its course. It is but but but the teams certainly i think has regressed from an overall. What's the word just cohesiveness you'll level it's cohesiveness and consistency and fundamental standpoint has been a regression pretty much since aaron. Boone has taken over. And i don't think that can be a coincidence. I'm sure he's very good at certain things. Very good communicator. Maybe the players love him. Maybe he is beloved by the yankees front office and everything that they present him with. He takes and understands and tries does what they are asking him to do. I mean brian. Castro has said aaron. Boone is doing exactly what he needs to be doing so clearly. They believe in the manager. But i look at the results on the field and i say things are getting worse. Not better and who. You're going to blame okay. There's only a few people you can blame. There's the players there's the manager and there's the general manager those who those are the people that really bear the brunt of the blame one of one of the biggest things that i think that when you're looking at a guy that doesn't have much experience and is coming in as the relationship guy right. You're there's a huge piece of the season missing when you're playing through a season and you enter one of these bad sums and it happens every year with a team not necessarily like this with the new york. Yankees were literally. Every single player is slumping. Maybe a aside from a couple of guys or shallow and dj even though dj early on was has detailing for his though like i feel like dj lately. He's definitely been no i. There's an intensity yeah. He's still looks like dj even even when he's drowning into the grounding out with runners in scoring position the bases loaded like the frustration. There you could see it all over his face so yes it's it just seems like he was. This can be better than dj's been oh for sure but also you need some protection around you like ads and protection around. You see better pitches also but my point is is that when you when you have a relationship guy. That relationship guy can come into play when needed right. When when there's like a tough situation with a player or whatever that relationship guy needs to show up to smooth the situation over or to to to walk through guys make them feel comfortable even though flasher you could. You could argue that in the playoffs. The relationship didn't exist. Because gary sanchez was not being communicate. was not being communicated with gary sanchez in a positive weather and made him feel good about being benched in the playoffs. But you're missing now. Is that baseball guy throughout the year. The baseball guy the baseball guy that knows the situations the baseball guy that knows what to say to individual players when they're not doing well the baseball guy to that knows how to harness the talent when a guy is going well and you know make sure that that is being seen on a level to the rest of the players. The baseball guy that knows how to get through those slumps on a on a team and make sure that there are some guys picking guys up and making sure that they're drilling certain areas when they become a focus point of regression. That baseball guy is not there. Maybe there's some of it. Maybe carlos mendoza is the baseball guy in the in the league anymore. Those guys in the league are are being pushed out for for newer wave more analytically driven analytically. Thinking guys that baseball guy is like it's hard to find now. And but what. I'm saying baseball guy to i'm talking about just the small intricacies of of the of the game which which go back to fundamentals and if you can't get better throughout a season and refresh your brain on fundamentals. Then we have a serious problem because most of the time when you do that when you break it down when you kiss keep it simple stupid and you get back to those good places. That's when these players who have unbelievable talent and have gotten to this point. That's when they can get back on their horse and start flourishing not by pressing two are not by doing the same thing over and over and over again praying that it comes out of it and just waiting through that it's breaking it back down getting back to your good place getting back to that simple place and then building from there and that's just not happening and that's infuriating to watch it really is but when i see gio doing that exactly that going the other way taking the pictures that are there and then guess what he does. Last night he smokes. Oh ball. that's that that morton leaves up in the zone that should be tattooed dead center field. It's exactly what he does. He tattoos up all because he's trying to hit a line drive not trying to trying to hit the ball over the fence. He's trying to make good contact. Make really good a connection with that ball and and see what happens with. And that's when that boat went over the fence he smoked apple the yankees though believe in their players they believe in their approach their their strategy their players that they put on this roster. So they're planning to stay the course because eventually the banging will come eventually. All these guys are gonna start hitting a ton of home runs going to start scoring runs in bunches and it's not going to be an issue that is i think there that is they're thinking that it's the courses mentality we know. That's the mentality but again that it becomes the problem when you do hit these laws because these lulls are just magnified to a different level and unfortunately for teams like this guess what that debt that will happen also when you face good pitching when do you face good pitching faced on most good pitching at the highest playoffs so this is a problem that unless they address it during the regular season. That's not going to go away and it's going to rear its ugly head again and it's going to happen in october about the people that are saying. Oh wait till it gets warm out the yankees or start rushing the ball. They'll start talking about this. Was somebody day In a in a grim work call. They were talking about that narrative that narrative while maybe true is stupid and ridiculous because what kind of temperatures come in october. It's called a gag. Also the yankees played a whole road trip in florida indoors. And then outside in dunedin stunt. It was a real any warm there what happened. It was eighty degrees there. Why did they hit a bunch of home runs. So is the win last night as dirty an ugly as it was. Is that a turning point. Is that something you just need to get it under your belt. Okay we won by her by crook. We one who cares how it looked. Let's move forward or back in the win column. If there still in last place a baby stepping forward. Sure you can use anything you want to build on right you can. You can spend any any kind of win narrative. Whatever you want you can spend as long as you're doing it in a way that makes sense. Sure they can do that. They're lying to themselves if they if they want to do with that particular when because it was probably the ugliest of possible ways to win. They've literally did nothing to deserve that. Besides gio or shallow and on pitch well did look very positive takeaway if you're looking for positive takeaway five bullpen. Look good the bullpens. Look great all all season. I mean certainly kluber has been bad and he's going to pitch against atlanta tonight. But you know if you're looking for the really good. I thought that hook is is is nasty like he. When he's on he's very good. He's really hard to hit and it's fun to watch. He's really fun to watch. So i'm really hoping that they're able to stretch him out. We're able to get more of them. Because i just the eighty pitchers five innings. I just the taste is like. Oh my gosh i want more. I want more and understand. What their i want more. The thing is about that win. Is it's like like you said they did. They did basically nothing to deserve the win. Especially from the offense of side of the ball. So how do they which is your shelhah. How do they take that. What do they do with that. do they does. The offense go into into wednesday night's game with a little bit more confidence just because they scored runs bottom line is they scored runs. And that's been a struggle for them or underscored for them. Yes whatever they like scoreboard. The runs were there on the scoreboard. Okay you can you can. You can go one of two ways with this you can just you can just fall back into what you've been doing and nothing will change and they're going to get blown out again or or just because all little something positive will sprinkle sprinkle positively on the yankees night last night. The fact that they won that could be a turning point. I don't know we'll see how it goes. But i i think i think if you're making if this is going to be a turning point it's going to be the how they follow it up as well cashman's electric comments. It was it was it was the electricity came from that From the from those words but they they have to look. Think if you want to look at something. I was joking on twitter last night to new hitting coach for the new york yankees jeweler shallow. Who smoked up all. But i mean look that approach. Look at geos approach i. I'm hoping that that's getting into the heads of these guys and talking about having fun gomo pitches doing the doing those things to get get you know get back to ball and have effective at bats and last night was proof proof positive you start doing those little things and you start seeing the ball differently and you are locked in and line drives go over the fence if we can get that approach from some of these other guys. I believe in their talents as well. I think these guys are very talented. Of course they are but they need to break it down a little bit and start doing some small things so that they can really expand upon them. And i think that's how you turn something around. So i'm not here for weir's waiting and waiting until you. Do you finally connect. Your shoes are still on and the ball goes over the fence a few times. Like let's just actually be professional baseball players and get better mechanically and and actually try to improve rather than just freaking wait. It'd be stubborn base. Baseball's a long season but there are certain points where some urgency is needed. And i think after this fifteen game stretch. The yankees needed need. Needed need some urgency. Because you can find yourself in a situation where if you just have a horrific april your whole is too big to dig yourself out of no matter. How what you play for the rest of the season. I'm not saying. The anchors are there but but that's that's just the reality of how the yankees have been playing so far so eventually you do need to have emergency can't just keep saying it's a long season. It's a long season. It's gonna come. It's gonna come because what happened. What happens if you're fourteen games under five hundred and it's june the divisions good and everybody else. Yeah it's like okay. Maybe they will get to fourteen years five games. Ten games under five hundred. Whatever it is even if they're five hundred it's like okay. We'll eventually you're going to run out a calendar right. It's hard to say that. In april i understand that but yes i. I'm i'm more looking at these guys. She should be identifying the fact that you know. Maybe this isn't just us slumping and if not working maybe maybe. The pitchers are making more adjustments to us. Maybe there is a said that layer of a book out originally with that first weekend. You're like i just noticed. More fastballs in the middle of the zone that they were swinging through and that might be early season roster that might just be here here it is hit it because i know you can't well i mean we've seen them struggle. We've seen these guys especially stanton struggle with fastballs up in the zone. I keep going back to that. Ver- lander up at like four four years ago three or four years ago. Where he just here it is. I dare you and just blew a giancarlo. Then yes if. They're if they're if they're being exposed on some of these at bats it does seem like they're picking out them a little bit more but again i don't wanna be sitting here waiting Because one that's not fun to watch and to. That's just that's just me. Seeing professional athletes not making adjustments. That are necessary to be better. Just be frigging better. Be better be better. That's the takeaway here. Well we wanted to get on an and discussed the cashman press conference and and i guess just the state of how the yankees are handling this. This slow start so hope you guys enjoyed. It will be back again for the friday five episode. The yankees got a weekend series in cleveland. Coming up so.

The Yankees, win, Miller brewing company Milwaukee Wisconsin Ninety six hours and three point carbs per twelve ounces. Shout mill the best beer out there in my opinion folks game one in the books we just routed the Tampa Bay Rays Garrett Cole six solid innings. The Yankees offense comes alive really late to put it away Giancarlo Stanton Man. I am just so he gets so much from everybody all we've all probably said should about Giancarlo Stanton Tommy's probably said the most but Man He's got three games, this postseason, three home runs and a grand slam tonight. Put It away you needed. We needed that insurance run we needed just the sacked fly. gave us the Grand Slam just put it away entirely and you're able usually SESA late. How we feel an Infield. Great feeling on now I mean, we came into this feeling of said like, why are we so confident I don't know why we're so confident. That's why we're so confident in that game on Gerke. Oh wasn't as best. He was still good enough Aaron judge he our judges huge latrone is going along. Of Carlo but take that lead for three. Hagi Frazier Aaron Hicks I Yankees Sweep I literally feel Yankee Sleep I think Debbie tomorrow outdoors. On the throat I love Debbie me. It's not gonNA throw it but I'm it's GonNa get kind of looked past a little bit but Chad Green and Britain was fantastic like Obviously a nine runs it doesn't seem like we need them but Britain was fantastic this team. Is Unbelievable, I get hard thinking about them all the time. This one through nine. They're like rectal this function till what was with eight nine hunters the. First Time in Yankee history that there eight nine hitters home run in the same game. You know you don't have D. H. 'til the seventies but still. I'm going to hold onto my one negative to the after the show because it's a very positive right now but out and let's walk. To the show positive. That we're GONNA. Go. Away. I know. At the end we'll figure it out the end, but I mean they started out. They start at the way they had to score quickly. And get that going DJ with the hit on Hicks. Get up. Sorry. Judge gets them over after DJ went on a passed ball wild pitch. Then he got brought home and it was it was beautiful beautiful way to start the game Aaron Hicks with three hits in this one. People like to give him a lot of shit for hitting three home. It isn't weird spot for a guy that loves the walk so much but tonight, he's had the swing the bat. He's got rolling Garrett. Cole. Wasn't perfect. But he was good at the end of the day they lost I'm sure people are go. That's where you spend three twenty, million dollars on a day goes six innings, three runs h strikeouts. Take quality start is a bad start for him. If you're telling me a bad stars sixteenth the reruns I'll take him everything and he's going to be ten times better. The next time he's out. So I'm yeah, the final line ended up being a lot better than I think because he kept giving up runs after the inky scored it felt worse like he wasn't nominated. Also he I two outs in like five pitches and if that. Bad Garrett cold start doctrine means he has he's due for a great one. Excellent. fucking. And what was that? What was the was? The inning was the he was two outs. And then got out of it. Yes. Living up there. Yeah. That was the bottom of the fifth. He gets Margot to strike out after they intentionally walked Choi. To Joe Screaming to I love the the fire. There's like three hitters on raise where I'm like, all right I'm a little scared of him wrestling I don't give a shower zoar rows Iranian at three hits. Tonight that guys he's back three games in the players who have fucking. So where did you come from? They have those guys they just make fake players. Yeah. They do I mean he's literally like Mike Trump G. man he was he mentioned g nothing ever make sense in the universe less than would g mench way does the Garrett Cole it's crazy. Absolutely create all his numbers like I. Think he at two thirty on the Air Schumer all against Garrett Cole I don't think we let's let's make a pack. We can never say his name again I think we gotta get a Voodoo Doll Lamar. So we have to like. I don't want to give him that like no. KRYPTONITE marriage winter him. acknowledged. Capital, each hand God it's. fucked that guy. Yep. WHO's your third guy says I think it's ours antea and then Choi. Pitch was down allow just pisses me off fucking at the top of the dugout. There In their lineup is It's easy. I'm not scared lineup at all they're all nameless to me. On our who's hitting five or WHO's sitting nine they're all the same you're all. The sidestep besides before five. It's like, okay. I don't the end of the day. You just look at the lineups and it's like, yeah, we one, nine three. Yes CJ judge. Hicks Voice Stander Gleyber Torres a seven hundred Clint Frazier man, quick frazier. We set it all day and I actually called it at dinner we into a horrific dinner by the way I. Go back tomorrow shot if they go back. To We? We ate there in the Cleveland series and we gotta go there. Wasn't in the playoff saying that was the point we literally. It's the place. Longer in the playoffs. there. Yeah but so much a terrible restaurant by the way him and big of what two, thousand and agreed. It was already. Big Ed was. Just when we got off the train and you got the tax, I didn't ceiling and the group jet to that Mardi said, we're going back to this place I. There's so many bars and restaurants I couldn't fathom that that was the world was are always and that was one. We knew was back before we're going. Okay. Out What's it called? What's the call naps? snoopers sloping? Going to Connecticut after this that's a whole different like not like not like tomorrow. Back so Before we were looking at other places and it was bad. It was high tables. We have some bigger gentlemen in our group and I didn't want them. Through the courtesy on the seating arrangement. Yeah, do I. DO appreciate that because I we walked by the one place would not want. Thank you but there was. Put, there are more than two restaurants in. Philadelphia. So Correct terrible disarmed. The Yankees are the best team in. But anyways, I call that dinner say Clinton who would say announced that dinner that Clint was. Playing over Garner. which had lefty. Blake Snell made all the sense in the world and clint hit a ball. I mean he hit this ball so fucking far to left field absolu- bob drop by drop the Bat. Just, just fantastic good for him. So happy for him on the season he's had. That was they do end up taking him out and I didn't understand that it was in the bottomless. I. Okay. If you're going to bring Gardner for defense at least like Clinton have the at bat that didn't make any sense I think you guys said that that pretty much ensures that Garner plays tomorrow fuck that the up I want the you're. Saying is garner coming in and being so bad is why don't we had the Infield hit right in the ninth, but that was whatever? No one's even what? You're watching the field data almost maybe. They see that maybe we. Listen to me here. This is where my I'm bringing up the negative. So go back to Cleveland Wash washing away by I talk What's his name? The really good Guy Naylor whatever and the So we brought when they when he got when he got pinched for that guy gotta hit, it's almost like you don't care the next time he comes up you want Naylor to be there right so I'm just going back and making a huge point. Get you. There is what I'm saying. I'm saying when I even though Wade got up in that last inning and got a walk, we want we needed void there. No matter what I want voice in that situation I don't understand why you're over managing and putting fucking tyler wait a second one teachable may be completely fine there. Well, it's not because of DJ void. So put Mike Ford, they're like I don't understand like I I just I don't understand why are putting tyler wages. Not a liability at first base. Yeah. I don't think so I know that's what I don't get. It's doesn't make and then. I get why they did it is. Big and we need defense more than we need a run but just know we weren't. Not One they're up. I should say there are. Different, no, it is. What? Makes more sense. Okay pull. No but I'm saying they're up one. So the thinking is we need defense more than we need to run but I still rather I agree I'm just saying why he probably did. Have A walk to set up the grill again I don't. I don't want that to justify his fucking decision of. Too much like too much managing their. It's what was it it was and we're only okay with weight up because it was already five three. Four three he's up it's like, Bro, we need void. You're right. Okay Okay I'm the guy that. Needed to bring the nailer thing. Because it wasn't the right move but end up working, right? Yeah. But it also Naylor got up and then would have been up in ninth inning and struck out rather naylor. That's. Horribly explained it but I'm. Back Yeah. College Gosh Yoga obviously, he's here to catch Garrett Cole. He's Garrick Kohl's guy. And he did that job and heat blocked a lot of very. Balls dirt sunny very good job behind the plate but I, mean, this guy just rakes one Garrett Cole pitches. Awesome he's fantastic. He it's the bomb, take the no tie the game then judge comes up and hits the missile by the judge just if he gets a hit a home run in the postseason I'm okay with it. I. Think That's how ten by the way in his career in the Post Yup. That's a lot. That's a lot of home runs for a guy who's played in. This is fourth pennine homerun. Any offensive than he does is a bonus because everything we need to do is just to make sure Garrett coalpit as well. Right he does want it boathouse money. So tomorrow tomorrow today announced it's Debbie Twenty one year old who is your catcher He's thrown all this year. Okay I think Gary has are we sure the game changes? We have numbers on who Debbie through this year do we know I know he's thrown together definitely on baseball reference you can go on splits and just see. Have that there. But I mean, that's interesting. Too I would love to I love to see this boot's. Yeah I mean I surprised they didn't bring Kratz on because same but if you bring. The five straight games, you need the extra pitcher. Didn't need it. Yeah. Gary can catch because you know how this game was going to go tonight w terrible. Recording. Which W Garcia's not Gary Cole- where he gets his own catcher right away like. Hitch, a twenty, one year old in the postseason in this now, it's totally helps that they're up a game. Totally helps Gary. Sanchez could fucking cats. Yeah and Debbie. Also twenty four about Debbie. than. Whose Debbie comfortable I know. But it's like he doesn't. Debbie's twenty one. We can't have him have a personal catcher. That's no. Back. Hagi didn't catch him. So, took Kratz caught him twice three, three, eight year, a four runs and ten and two thirds get caught him four times five seventy era, but runs in two thousand samples. Sample size, but but you can't bring Kratz on because he caught two games now we'll say, okay, the logic here is king. He hasn't caught him yet so that you don't want to do have a guy who he's never thrown to before agreed so I guess you go gary you fat fuck it's easier to see your target. There's some thought there. You hate throwing a kitty cat do I used the always hate throwing? I got a feeling about Gary. Tomorrow, he played very well game he played. India. And actually. Her I'M GONNA call my shot. He comes up with a big tomorrow. He blocked the played good defensively as well. He's GonNa, hit ninth like. It's almost it almost becomes as long as his defense solid. He almost has become like house money to. Like you said, you're bet on ninth not I really expecting much album. Okay. And let's Talk Giancarlo. The Grand Slam where I do out assaulted by Tommy. I mean, just crazy me Tommy tried his he's working on. You can tell like he's taken heat for his hand motions and how would use loses control of his body seizures. When we good moments in the motor skills, you've told me lose your motor skills without are generally, it feels like Stephen Hawking. But He's the grit side. We're all going nuts in from the video from what I've seen is everything was fairly normal until we both faced each other and I was kind of going for one side high five or whatever, and then you just. You throat, punch me just straight with we were being boys and. You're trying to be one of the boys when you just can't do just do your own thing like you smacked me like four times get the fuck off. You know. Hit you and then hubs. That was doer nursing. Boys. Throat because he was like, go like this is. The thing I think because for Marty's like, yeah, you hit my Lord. Like I'm level not a midget. Marty's probably six inches like five ten compared to you. That's what I'm. Saying. So my arms extend. Hit Martin. Like his chest to you. Okay but I mean I just froze. Frankie thought that you hadn't cut your fingernails right? which are Trent said if you cut your fingernails than I would have played out on the couch does my mom my poor mother watching home you would have just. Like shadowed Alex, a speed and precision which I it was. It was accurate. What does it go? Right on the. What about meeting just not flinching or filling? Russia. Ends my precision assassin like you not flinching the good I couldn't breathe for a lot of ranks amongst the last week lease we've looked like a virgin festival playoffs. We. We'll kill each other Jesus Christ. There's always something with you. This I gotta I might ice my throat tonight I didn't think that was going to happen to you six-foot five eleven five, nine plus eleven. Yeah. You guys are all this lying. Five I'm five, nine on with these shoes probably five times shoes a ridiculous a small crew six months. Bounce balanced easy five nights fi we're actually accordia average. Six Four. So you're six to Phnom. Six, six, one half definitely six, three, six. I'm already got you down. Actually definitely six, three, six, one half. Six three. FUCKING SHRIMP DEX fucking five nine. Normal. In this society you fuck trying to below average. No Five. Off No one walks into a bar five, nine often. Your and walk. Anywhere. Five inches, you don't pull it out confident either. Your average. I didn't. You lost. I. Mean I'm saying if you've got five minutes, you're not walking with a big swing in Calkins. Around your six four. My mom was. All right now. That's what I was getting. Not. What. People expected. I the Garrett Cole strike out with the base load is. That was the that was kind of the turning point of the game if you let's overrun there and like. The. Like he did not have as best stuff tonight. I. Feel like. The location was changed in brick walls wasn't great fastball. He thought he had I think again multiple times where he just went back on that that bad he went he was three one and he went fast ball fastball. But I just I love I. Love Watching pitcher scream on the mountain and big moments like that. You wish there were fans. Obviously by the way thoughts on Petco Park the fucking flies I said this. Different. With this now, they said obviously, the move the fences in would you have to admit Marty? Compared to the Yankees is. On. Move every stands for after that I think no, you probably extend the bullpen or whatever you want to move the close because everyone's further away now backseats you could add. Yeah. But so they moved they moved it's not as much in hidden park. As you thought also Bob's fuck it wasn't even the Dimensions Day was just the way the ball flew in the I thought John Carlos Ball flew I, thought off the bat that was sacked fly and then who? Is homer of coal I. believe that was one. So the Boston fly when you get some runs here. Which is okay. We were kind of scared about that. What the Yankees like offense. How are they going to do in this pitchers park but it looks like they'll be okay. Shadows also not a problem when the game starts at eight o'clock, not one bit but I'd imagine when the game three four and five seven got Dr Perot it did it did go in it is also Kober. So also this Yogi Berra's a quote. It gets darker earlier something right T to. Gets its later also. Pretty. Good. You don't know Yoga. Slowly learning nothing everything the same don't do quotes. Quoque I. Love. Stephen. This is all for Stephen by the way I don't know if we said that. Right be this is all. It is for him, I mean everyone thinks that joke I think that we're just doing him right right now because there's that ray signed with originally say. TAKEDOWN Steve Irwin and the next time world series that should be a curse that OSCE could be a date might be cursed. Probably are might be curse one of the most beloved humans in the world maybe one and you just try to devil right now literally took him out. What was frank thank had an awesome joke about Stephen Tonight No. No. Like a few weeks ago in the raising beat the Yankees, what I might Miss Frank Tanks joke about Stephen. It was like everybody was like I like. It was. I don't remember but do you remember. Eddie squirm in the bed. We like a lot of a sort of lives. We all win today. I think we all want. One money. Glass now just didn't have that great of a year why were shocked to see the four? In the past it hit him I know. What he just looks cool. It your own. Nasty Nasty slider. The long hair going yeah Gary Coleman Looks Haller. Every time I see him though I don't know what's going to happen tomorrow night but I see Glasgow key gained another. Aircraft high socks too. High socks gets me as well. The lanky. Got An him though they can hit him. HIT HIM THIRTY ONE RUN BROCK LLAMAS Runs is so many run fear of the Yankees just mystique his bat rays right now they're looking theirselves in their mirror and they're like my God we're a fake carnival, minor league franchise expansion Tampa Bay rays nobody even likes us and we're going. To raise one eight games democracies, and so the Yankees have no chance of the series Oh remember and we mentioned scumbags throwing twice show. Yeah. This giancarl Giancarlo hits the Grand Slam game over finisher move and then they leave that bump curtis with to lessen that guy, no Chan is called that right away de ruled that Joel that and gio is up and the first ball just acting which which is even more suspicious was the second. One Yeah. Yeah. Because they'll never know but he was the next batter saying. She was the first second because you don't what the first pitches to. Right. So it's even more obvious. and. So they've rushed him I. Mean it was right at his head. He had the dive out of the way, and then later I believe gleyber had had a similar the next batter glacier all might have been out but GIO was okay. Reminded me. That was okay but Geos I do not think was also anyone Hussein like he was rattled because you just gave a grand slam all that. Okay. I hear you. But switched the roles here. Let's say the Yankees give up a grand slam in the in game one against the raise and it's nine three and the Yankees do this there's no twitter they would've they would've been kicked out they've been calling. For heads. They wouldn't play games to they wouldn't just suspended the series they raise move on. So don't give me that that you don't think that can be anywhere near intentional where if it's the other way around, there's no fucking chance the Yankees get the benefit out just want to say that no, that's bullshit I agree and there was part of me that wanted the Yankees tally in the ninth because. You. Know better television don't punch down. Don't put down. and. They'll file out away. It's filed away Oh. Yeah. They'll labor gleyber got a hit in that inning and. Keep trying to like. I think it was a huge turn. So. Yeah. So that away. The Yankees fucking rolling here. The, you know in the postseason which three down ten to go through downtown together, we tend to go my throat got. These guys Eddie and most they gotta get on the road. Somehow to Connecticut and we'll see what is coming back. Me and attia come back I like Eddie sticking around I felt bad either watch the packers. Vibes Guy Eddie. Eddie's fantastic I. I only WanNa Bears Fan I don't WanNa Talk Shit packers week four really not into football but Eddie I just can't. I can't say a bad word to him. He's the best. Packers are four no by the way. Rogers ridiculous fucking Big Abbas talking shit about him because he took a sack in a two touchdown game. I needed the. Only. got. The over the over his dad he gave me life. Then he took it back.

Episode 78: The Games Have Begun

"The. Tied at five as go the Bosnian love this. Aaron Boone the leader his person. Out of the. These. The first double. Portrait roy? What's up? What's happening? Welcome tradition of the short porch. I'm your host alongside me on the other side of the laptop my co-host, my compadres. Tommy smokes, Tom Kelly. What's going on? It's up our. We're back. Baseball's back. It's back. The games have begun. We are rocking and rolling. I promised myself. I wouldn't overreact. That's that's out the door where we're aware weapon this team. This team's going to be incredible. We hurting everything every pitching left handed pitchers right handed pitcher in opposite field. We're in the center in left Yohannan over the fence minute before the fence, we're doing everything we're doing everything we need to do. They I mean, they took they took tabby raise the cleaner, and they want they won't eight five day. The Yankees are back. I mean, we I feel alive for the first time in months, it's not even like they want like actually who gives a shit, but dislike seeing games and like seeing tweets about players, and and what? Just I feel back. It does it feel. It is. This is true. New year misses the true new year. I think growing up I would always think that September was the true near when you go back to school. But I mean, that's not really the case anymore since fulltime jobs. Now, the new year is marked it is when baseball against right? Yeah. Quick apology to the pockets. We're gonna be all over the place that I I mean, I'm gonna say at the end the puck while like I'm sound like jittery freaking out ahead. A whole thing this weekend. It's aircrews while weekend, but we have show much fucking shit to talk about we're trying to list we could do this for three hours. And we might I mean who knows we're gonna see how this goes. But we all talk about first one got talk about Manny Machado with finally signed Padres three hundred million dollars ten years. He's got an that. After five years. He's got a semi no-trade clause. He's getting a lot of signing bonus. He got he's agent Lozano should get the biggest reason the world this guy came. Through. I mean, they waited they waited no one thought he didn't get his money. And then you know, we're talking about baseball's ruined. Because no one's the painting one and income the Padres three hundred million dollars ten years done deal. Unbelievable as USA for everybody and myself in ourselves included, you know, saying this is going to be, you know, says this off scene is a major black guy for baseball. Our to twenty-six generational superstars not getting paid as they deserve. What's taking so long? This can lead to a strike ideology. Well, Machado got in. Awesome. The I mean, the biggest free agent he'll ever history or Kia, right? And it's out right? Because of Giancarlo. But since he was technically in whatever in early on it. But yeah, I mean huge deal. Sort of the case way are you know, for the keys. I don't blame him for not going up to ten years through you know, that kind of money is right, especially for Charro. I would give that to Harper. But if Machado got that then Harper's probably going to be looking at like three fifty to three seventy range. So, you know, for the inky is I get it. I mean, he would have been nice to have for sure. But it's such an outrage. It's a such a large deal where I'm not mad and then for Machado. I know we wanted to be Yankee. But you know, you get to go live in San Diego for three hundred million dollars years. Not too bad of a deal for hundred million dollars. Not to better deal. Either couple things shocking shocking that Manny Machado chose to play in San Diego over the south side of Chicago shocking. Truly stunning that he thought who thought he wouldn't use the sixty to win White Sox who have no future whatsoever, contrary to what their fans will tell you shocking. He. I didn't choose to live there people like oh it beautiful summer Kogyo. A what a great place love. He wouldn't live there in the offseason. What's the weather like right now in Chicago because you're a month away from baseball in? It's like five degrees outside San Diego's courts. I mean is Louie p people are like, oh, no hubs. I hate that. But. Corrobos wannabes and whatever. But the go no hopes you missed out a Machado, buddy. I I mean, we accepted we weren't getting Machado about a month and a half ago. I mean like two weeks into the new year when he wouldn't hear thing. And there was no we were like, all right? We'll Don wearing lemonade who to Lewinsky like come on. This wasn't a shock at all. I mean, it was shocking that he went to the Padres. I mean, we didn't think they were you on the map like couple weeks ago. They kind of just came in last second. But. In terms of like, my disappointing my shocked. No, I I also, you know, I'm up in arms either. Because three hundred million is a number. I didn't wanna touch, you know, if the Yankees doing it and be like, okay, let's cook. But like, I'm totally content with not giving him three hundred million. Because my whole thing was when that first report can't with BUSTER only wear Lozano had to come out and deny it who knows what was gone with their where they said his only offer on the table was the White Sox seven years one seventy five. I that was that was where I was like they don't marry that and go to twenty whatever that's that's grounds for a strike or like a riot. You know, like we have to we have to do something about that. But the rumors are now that the number float around during the meeting was to thirty to twenty to thirty. That's fine. If they were willing to do that, then they did their job because that's at least we were. We were in the game playing the game. They just didn't want to do three dollars. I'm totally with that. I I'm very at peace with that. If he ended up going to the White Sox. Ox for like eight to forty eight to fifty that. I would have been meant because it could have definitely matched that or got close enough where he would have accepted it. But ten three hundred is you know, they weren't getting they weren't getting close enough to that. We're even if you were going to go to the argument that he would have taken a little bit less to be key, which I don't even think is necessarily true. But even if that is true, I don't think they would have got close enough to to make it worth it from Saudi to has a Robertson canal type field. I mean, other people have said that. But he got just took the biggest deal was offered Dona west coast. It'll probably just fade into oblivion. I mean, I think fights was on said he's like why didn't we see this coming million miles away? Like, obviously he's going to the Padres. Where he just doesn't give a fuck about winning and all that, and he gets to count his money, their whatever I will also say, I'm not mad at many at all at all you get offered three hundred million dollars to go play in San Diego for the next ten years. You do that every single time. Like, no. I mean, you know, maybe winning isn't the number one thing on his mind. And who knows to be honest because the Padres have the number one farm system baseball. Eric hosmer. They got the hedges guy. They have decent pitching. Like that division isn't crazy like they could very easily. They look Harper's go make the playoffs while he's there. I think. Yeah. There probably have at least one like one like funnier at least. But like. You like the White Sox have no future whatsoever. I think the Padres have a better future than the whites business shitty. But the White Sox to have somewhat of a future hoping Tommy John, you have no idea what he's going to be like, they're basically their whole franchise relies upon Eloi Jimenez to live up to the height because everyone out yeoman Cada absolute tragedy. He's one of the bigger busts like ever. They have a few other pieces. But like I mean, they're nowhere near competing nowhere near the pod. That could have MLB players on their team. That's the Padres could win like eighty seven games this year. Second wildcard. Yeah. Yeah. So I mean, they won't do it. They'll never win a title never win a title in San Diego. But. Yeah. Just fuck. The White Sox. Fuck White Sox. Dave he's a little coward. Why? Why wouldn't you? It's been so long. We've talked about as to why wouldn't you just fucking chain yourself to that would have been ho-. Larry's. Radio. He his it was such an easy out to he could have just chained himself. So Sofres doesn't l White Sox. Dave is a borstal White Sox blogger said that if you think Dave porno getting arrested for Vail was bad. Well, if the or the NFL, whatever is bad way to see what happens I'm gonna chain myself to a statue outside the White Sox stadium. If Chicago doesn't sign Manny Machado while they do not Manny Machado in your fused to chain himself to the statue outside. But he never put a time chained himself there for five minutes, and is Don dummy, even if a cop came by and saw I'm be like, hey, man, can just like unchain yourself, and he was okay. I it's like it's like he just doesn't understand like what we're doing here. Like, it was just a it was eight honestly like him not doing that. Like confused the fuck out of my brain for the entire week. I'm still wondering why he didn't do it. It was just crazy. It's like, that's your you just joined barstool, and you're gonna you know that that's how your head waves. That's how you get on the map here. It's a big deal. And I I just like I compare it a little bit to my whole life dumps tour thing like, it's embarrassing and shit. But like it helped you in the helps in the long run like gained notoriety here, and you just go within you make you laugh at yourself. I don't know man, we're going to too much into it. But just it makes sense to me. It was where move but the end of the day. Fuck the White Sox and good for Manny Machado moving on Yankees baseball. You know, we're we're we like we're still hype Yankees your back, and we just didn't top of the key to the first fifteen minutes, but you know, the Machado Newsweek that has been legitimately atoll. Of discussion on the show for the last like three shows. So we had the. In terms of Yankees playing baseball. Our God his basically fan Ohs. Luke Voight hit a ball six hundred and fifty feet today. It was quite for. It was crazy. I mean, it was like Babe Ruth hit. It was the same e sells a hop. Couldn't be more back. He just got left center. I I got hard. I got erection from it. I was I was so I was on the way back from Syracuse on the train. And I I've practically like stop the train till I tell her what it happened. It was unbelievable Luke voice. Wean between him and Greg birthday because they're gonna have the most lethal force base combo baseball history. Greg birds gonna hit like gray hit three fifty. He's got the sweetest lefty swing since Don Mattingly that I've ever seen. Luke Floyd gonna hit forty five home runs their they're each only play like eighty one games. They're going to each put up monster numbers. I what are you doing? It's a to head to head some back on Greg bird. We are. We were pre game to go out on Saturday. And the hotel would say I said, I'm being relatively Sarka. I know I know what you're doing. But. We were pre game to go out on Saturday cues for the whole Duke game. We're going to bars and the. Yeah. We like really high high seats because it was like completely sold out. But. We're gonna talk at the end because there was a whole crazy fucking thing. And it self still recovered from. And so basically we're preaching to go out. And obviously the Yankees are playing one o'clock streamed. It unfortunate though, the yes network can cover him as Nessin. I kinda just muted care about listening to their broadcast but fucking obviously he comes up, and I go to periscope it his, and I was like I'm pretty drunk at this point. And I was actively rooting against them screamingly. A lot of heat on Yankees Twitter. I saw fear for one year tweets and a little bit. 'cause I I was upset that he hit a double. But like, it's. And I ended up retracting it because it is in hindsight. Like, we're not listen, I dislike Greg bird a lot. But I don't root against New York Yankees. Like, I want us to be the best. We can. So that was that was silly my part and up and totally retract. I'll totally back down. You'll see let me just finish the point. But I am rooting for the best of this team. If I root for the better things to happen and Luke voi- winning that job and not being interrupted by bird and bird going down. A AAA is the best for this team. I know that for fact, and we know the whole birth thing. We've I mean we've been hearing back and we've done that twenty five times as a carousel of ridiculousness. So I'm just saving everyone. I'm smarter than everyone else. I'm saving you all from that pain that we're going to suffer when he breaks his foot the end of April after hitting one fifty he can't see the ball because he can't hit a curveball. So I'm just saving us from that good for Greg birdie, hit a double off the wall. And then he had a single later. But whatever I don't want to root against him. But I am rooting for Luke voice. So by default, I'm rooting against redbird. I don't think that's a crazy thing to set. Well, and also if this was the regular season, you cannot root against. No, no, no, this is spring training. And like you said, it's probably we've been down this road before with Greg bird is a great spring training. And then he gets out of the gate sitting like one hundred and hurts his flood or something, and that's it. So you're not rooting against Greg. Burt yet rooting against the ANC. He's performance because obviously the wins and losses don't matter in March. Right. You're rooting against Greg bird having a good enough spring where dinky than fall forward and ends up costing the Ke's, right? Really for one. That actually Maddox comes out new. Yes me who I want to win the first base job. It's Luke voiding a landslide by default. I'm going to be rooting for route Luke void to win that job. But and that means I won't I don't want Greg bird to do as well as as Luke fly. And that's what comes out so on that retracting that soft. I just you know, I do and, you know credits for realizing that someone, you know, few people were crediting me for apologizing. So I like be a lot. But but go look Voight, he he's absolute machine. He. RBI single early in the game. And then home run I love everything about him. He had these quotes afterwards that are just fucking stuff that makes you which wanna drop whatever you're doing and run through the nearest wall. So this is boon on voi- Luke wants to be really good at this game. Like that. That's a good start think we all saw him kind of really fall. I think we all saw him really kind of fall in love with being a Yankee. And I think he went home on a mission to make sure he comes in prepared and wanting to show the world that he's the guy we saw last year. Then Luke void steps in my goal. This year's obviously to win a World Series. But to make my defense night and day. I wanna win a go glove. That's kind of my mindset more of more weight. I this is from Eric bowl. And he's a great volunteer. If you ever if you need a foul from a good source for Yankee stuff, I feel like everyone thinks last year was a fluke, but I'm not going to let anyone else control. What I think of myself, obviously, I'm going to do what I can get the job done empty the first. Basement of New York Nike's. I mean, come on. But he gets you just he says the right things he says the things that make people wanna run through walls. I think Aaron Boone really hit the nail at is that Luke Foyt there's all talk in. And there's no action. Luke Foyt was he's all talking all show. He talked last fall about how much he loved being Anke. How much it meant to him to wear the constraints and he had a hot hot month, or so, but there's a lot of guys that would have just you know, sort of been content with that. And then gone to the off season. We'll fat and happy came back. And then, you know, you're not the same player you are just sort of hot streak, but Luke void he tasted. What it was like that greatness of being Anki, and he made it his goal this off season to come back and make sure that he could continue that and keep wearing those pipes. Now, if you not work, you know, maybe the talent just isn't there? Now, it is there. He's the best. We'll see. But it's at least the the hard work that occasion. To you know, fourth to continue is definitely there. Yeah. He's he's the best player of ever see my life. I can say sacked after watching one spring training game. And last year. He's no fluke. I just love. It makes that quote from Boone. He he talks about like that. And he doesn't give fuck about bird. Like, there's no bird quote like that he voiced. Void is like head and shoulders the leader in the called house for this job nine close. I think that he has to read about in my opinion. Yeah. I know they know what's going on. Right. I mean, but there were talking club. I think in the front I think there's a part of the front office Cashman that really wants bird to win it because you know, bird has been there guy for I don't think so. And they want that lefty bat, I think that's the biggest thing is they want the left Yvette in. They give a fuck. I don't I don't think that's such a if it was they wouldn't have they would have gotten Murphy into the LeMay who they that was a big deal. They don't give think I think in their ideal world, though, it's it's bird dryers. Maybe it's just because the left Yvette and because the analytics backup not the analytics back of Voight not bird. No, I'm not saying I'm not saying who is gonna get it who's I'm just saying that if you're telling them who's gonna win the job. And who would they rather have be performing? I think they'd rather it be bird just because the left E bet. Okay. But I think the face. Eighth their faith right now is in void way. More for the. For the next the analytics in the mile per hour off the bat, they back up everything everything with him. No, I agree with that. But I'm just saying it's like if they could reverse it and have that expel. Expel K, saying it would okay. But those are unbelievable quotes not no one had a better quote though over the weekend, then Aaron Hicks. Did you see this one? Yeah. This is unbelievable. I like I just wanna go hug him and like him a high five and just go to war when going to fight with Aaron Hicks. Someone asked him how long did it take you? I think it was coli Harvey. They asked him I could be very wrong. Sorry coli if you're listening, but. He said how long did it take you to get over the ale? DS referring to the Red Sox taking us out four Hicks. I'm still not over it. I'm not over it until we win. I want to win a World Series. I'm tired of losing. We've come so close. But I'm tired of saying we came close. Let's fucking goal. Let's call. It gets that times when I was younger. I would have a pretend Yankee player in my head which was be myself, and those type of quotes I'd give those that, you know, the right ones were, you know, we don't wanna be you know, you can only what's the quote, I'm fucking come. So Florida come so far some shit like that. We're gonna come this far just to come this far. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Something like that. But yeah, I mean, you know, they they've seen it the past two years. They've been so close they've had that tastes. They watched the Red Sox win it. And they're not gonna sell for anything else. That's the way being near KiKi should be every year's World Series or bus that want to hear anything else. And I do like that seemingly me know Voy Hicks. I mean, it seems like everybody has come into the season with that mindset of what last year, Sherry one hundred games. But it sucked because we got knocked out by the Red Sox and watch them when the World Series and this year we're coming back with the goddamn vengeance. Yeah. I also like because they very easily could have said like, you know, we're not thinking about that which worried about our own. I liked that. They're tracking about it. I liked that. Last year was a disaster with quotes Cashman, you know, every whatever we said relating to that series and shit. Giancarlo. Whatever, you know, we want Boston all the backfire. That's a quote, that's like that's what we want. Those are the quote one out there. I wanna win World Series. I'm tired of losing. We've come. So close, but I'm tired of saying we came close. Like, let's I'm I have chills right now. If you don't show listening like throw water on your face. Let's figure this out because we got all be on the same page here. And we're coming for Boston. Like that. Is it almost makes me think that quote, I wish when I the video I made last week, which is the lesser pinned it to my Twitter, if you haven't seen it, but it's a little competition little ventures and game mixed with, you know, Yankee highlights instant amazingness. But I wish like that quote that he saying that could be overplayed that could be played over in that video because it says there's no audio right? I don't think so I didn't see I'm not sure I don't I wouldn't. I would either for everything. I haven't heard it though. We're seeing all the cool list, but Aaron Hicks big hopefully, having the pod soon. Say right now. So we're going on at Tampa. We can say that. But yeah, we're we're we're doing spring training dente Florida March eighth to March tenth if you're down there hit us up. We'll hang out. We'll we'll do it big. But we're doing it. We're trying to get as many we're trying to build as much contest. We can't down there short porch. So if you are down, Tampa, you know, hit us up whatever we're trying to do as many as we can got a few lined up right now. Hopefully, they don't they don't fall through. But which on a really pump shit out there. So I would love the Aaron Hixon there and just have them just say this quote forty times in a row. All right. The actual audio of it. Yes. That's a good idea actually Clough shit. We just we may have nobody else. Steal us idea. Yeah. They just keep yourself. He trust trust. Rethink just us. You guys. Moving on Clint Frazier. He's he looks great rip rip ripping hits left. And right. I mean, just that speed. I mean, we I tracked it on. My is I'm really good at this. I had four hundred miles an hour on his at four hundred. I mean, I mean not I mean it was over four today. But he did have the big hit yesterday. No taken count taking one for three on Saturday. Absolutely, scorched. A scorched the decimal these confers? We is the the lightning backs lightning that speed in line drives left and right. So that's great actually damn Clint after the job, they he said back. We're yeah. We're friends. We're all friends now he likes us. He never followed. You back though. Now, we're getting there. Never back. Yeah. No. I like how he's playing are get our status. Tyler wade. He's Pete Rose. He's he's he's actually the best player ever seen Tyler Wade. He's he is. I mean, there is I don't mean this as an insult to Tyler Wade. But there is some Greg bird to him where he has unbelievable spring trainings. Tears up AAA, but we sell to see him make that next step. Tyler read, I'm way, more pro-tolerance than amd, Greg bird. But I hope tolerate his great spring training. But I think we're at the point with him where a good spring training. That's great. But we need to see it in April. Yeah. I get that. He's best player. He's he's an eight hundred and two games today to doubles refuses to hit anything. But doubles. I respect a lot. It's a good strategy moving forward. It would be awesome. If he does this in a regular season. Awesome. Because he's he's our zobrist. I mean, we always say, but like he played fucking left field today. Tomorrow he'd be playing second base for all. We know. He's the fastest man alive. He's the most good-looking most handsome guy ever met. I haven't that most hands I've ever encountered through social media. Whatever seeing on TV he's breathtakingly gorgeous. And any hits baseball's in in March. And February anyone in the world. Tyler would Pete Rose. Yeah. He the keys I think want him to be on the team. He fast could be pinch-runner could be defensive replacement all over the field as long as he can. That's that's what's going to come down to. He is he going to be able to hit bigly pitching in the regular season. Yeah. He's so dangerous. Yeah. He is somebody that he could be me talk about under the radar potential keys to the Yankee season. He is somebody that is definitely at the top list. Definitely. He's going to be very close to making the feel. He's he's on the very he's on the bubble of the roster making the twenty twenty five man roster. Start the year. It's right. It's basically going to be him or bird. I think which well I thought it's been pretty much said that, you know, loser goes to AAA right? But some people disagree. But I yeah, I would think him bird is there anyone L Clint. So it's him burger clinic feel like one of them stays. I I was doing this the other day my head. So apparently, they are they're going to carry thirteen pitchers, which I think is a mistake. So that means that I don't know how these three spots are going to remind gets one of them. So you have you know, the four. I don't know somebody's gonna get screwed out somewhere way way. So I'm not good at math. So thirteen pitchers leaves us with twelve hitting spots right with three guys on the bench. So I put the runner in left because even Frazier garner is making the team for sure even Frazier out her honor. Honors on the team. So you have garner Hicks judge Stanton. That's four. Then you got Andrew Harr to Lewinsky Torres LeMay, Hugh Boyd flash birds. The winner of that first base job. Right. That's. Shit. Account somewhere for four that's eight. Gary is nine Austin role. Mine is ten four. That's I have eleven players listed the four outfielders garner Hicks. This is ridiculous. The four. Arnor Hicks judge STAN the five infielders put it as Voight LeMay who tore as Tula with key and do heart the two catchers Garrity enroll my that's eleven spots taken which means that they're only going to carry twelve hitters. I means only one spot open for either Frazier. Tyler Wade or potential backup first base in which I don't think they'll do because it will be. Yeah. Right. It could be freezer or weight or eating for spot, which is kind of you know, our onyx their best friends Dannon is fuck. Perry. Carry thirteen people thirteen headers twelve pitchers don't need eight guys in the bullpen. I think that's ridiculous fresh with how good the bullpen supposed to be. Yeah. And Tarpley has I mean that implies Tarpley's making team, right? Oh, yeah. Definitely helps us chances gives them another open spot while I mean, I feel he would be the guy you'll also have this weekend. David Hale, he's back from Japan this guy. I don't understand why he was cut when he was all this guy does is get people out and and shut teams out David Hill. So many what like four four inning long relief appearances where he doesn't get touched at all. He's he pitched. He threw two hundred thirty shut up. All let's see last year. He had was it last year the year before he was really good in my own. You know, what it was in the minors? Right. It wasn't in the majors. He had two five three era with the Yankees last year in ten innings three earned runs. He's a good like sixth sixth starter a good like emergency got. That's the I want him not Sesa this year as our emergency Slyke guy. I cannot believe Louise us still it's almost writting like the the really really ugly people from his team like the that. He will make us make our learning miserable and make me lose more hair everyday. But we says like still a kind of a king. He's gotta go. I don't get it. Apparently, the nice guy, but I don't know Shane round. This was a nice guy too. No, more LUSA. I I wanna cut my hair. Oh, gleyber Torres. He hit a ball. I mean talk about starting shit off like first inning Red Sox dead center bomb. I was very excited about that. Now, we just need to do something. I feel like everyone else has gotten involved Giancarlo. And judge applying for the first time Monday Paxton starting tomorrow, I believe and then Tanaka Tuesday believe how the correct so we're getting some whereas everybody playing and hey, nothing better you if you played it perfectly. You're listening to this as the games rolling around tomorrow, one o'clock for for training home. What do you care about more in spring training? Do you care like early spring training or really anytime spring training do care more about how hitters or pitchers look? Good question. Thank you. You're welcome. I don't give a fuck with Aaron judge looks like I know like I don't need Cholistan hitting like, I don't need that. There are certain people care. What Berg does carrot Voight does. But like in terms of start like, I don't care Severino. I actually well this year starting this year. I care about pitching war because I wanna see what next we're talking about. Oughta be no I wanna see what he looks like it's live hitting. I mean, he faced four Yankees in a sim game and struck everybody out, including tolerate who Strang Tyler weighed in February twice impossible is legitimately impossible. I mean, it's like facing Tony Gwynn. So the fact he got him twice. Liz like. Yep. Big time like ought to stay obviously, we care about Severino in the tipping pitches thing if you figure that out Phillip, he didn't it's very hard thing to just get rid of like involuntarily changing. How you throw a baseball like to home plate without even knowing like what you're doing wrong. I don't know how you do that. Have you changed that off season? Don't care about. Yeah. Don't care Tanaka care Paxton. But more Paxton, I don't wanna get hurt. So I kind actually packs on the mount like, I let's just throw a few baseballs have some fun and then call it. I can't more about pitching. I think for sure I'm more. I get more excited to see hitters. Just more exciting. But I care more and worry more about a pitcher has a bad spring. I'll be way more worried than if a hitter bats because hitters go through slumps is what it is you work through your swing? But a pitcher comes out and has a bad swing in their mechanics are off for their stuff is different. That would worry me way more than hither Tanaka, generally terrible. Yeah. He is really the like Tanaka. You know, he'll be you know, pretty good once the regular season rolls around spring training attainments like, let's just hope that ticking time bomb doesn't finally explode. We're still like sitting on that LOKI. People don't bring it up like his his arm is hang on the threat as just like threat. I will say about you know, what kind of makes sense because important threat, very important thread. I will say what it does make sense. He sucks so much in February March because out of everyone on our staff reliever starters. He's our biggest big time. Clutch pitcher, we have playoff game game season on the one you want him pitching. So he knows when the Tryon not try it. So it does makes he knows you fuck about this all three hormone say great. I'm gonna go golf. I don't even know if he golfs, but we'll see. That's a good question at the end of day probably pitching because I'm just so concerned about Severino is wanna see him figure it out. I'm more concerned my hand than anybody else. Moving on Aaron judge had a ball of the stadium in batting practice. Doesn't really like like a heater out of the complex not just the fence. Like, it just kept it might still be going. That was cool. That's all I need to see for judge. He could sit out. I don't speaking of funny. Quote, you see his one about what he learned last year. I don't know. If I did what he says. I was like what what is your? What was your biggest takeaway, or what did you learn twenty eighteen and he said to not get hit in the wrist great tragedy shadow to what the hell is the guy's name. Did it on the royals is with a J right jet. Yeah. Yeah. Fuck. Yeah. Joking in no J chip. Maybe Jay, you know, what he doesn't even desert you mentioned. But I do know he's he's basically Hiller. Rate. Once you said, I'm going to be like, oh, we have for months. Focuses guys name. What are you looking up to ninety? I typed Aaron judge hit on the wrist. I probably cooked on the wrong one. No, I may have clicked on article. I we're gonna move on is going to keep looking. So we don't bore the listeners here. Timbale Craig kimbrel decided that he's gonna sit out the year. If he doesn't get the six year hundred million dollar deal thoughts. Soup. What a moron. I mean. If he doesn't get Junius there. It is Jacob genus Eunice Junius fuck that guy. Jacob Tunis was at the game. Yeah. I saw him. I the best vision the world we were sitting third base side. And I could see into the dugout from like left field. Judge like go into the tunnel. Like out of I ball's. And that's where we the visual the whole into the Canelo. As big night. What some news outlet Colmey like took me dead seriously about the candlelight vigil whose whole funniest thing. I've ever been a part of why why SM y took my quotes like dead seriously. It was great. It was almost an onion article. What we talked Craig Kimball. Six years hundred million you want great, good luck with that man. If he doesn't it's like, oh, yeah. I'm not worth six years hundred million this off season. Well, if I just don't play baseball for year, then I'll then I'll show mental really worth that much money a year older, they're year older, just rusty. I mean, I I get being frustrated to a degree. I mean, you know, Machado got his money. Harper looks like he's going to get his money. Maybe from the keys. Let's still hold out a little bit of hope there seems like he's pretty much definitely going to Phillies. Right. But they're still Dallas Heikal is unsigned Marlin Consol. You see that the Morgan's Allsteel food twins two years twenty million. That's nothing. I would have loved anxious to scoop him up or something like that. So there are still some of those veteran guys out there who are unsigned and who do have a right to have a little bit of a gripe because they've sort of been held up by the slow moving Machado at Harper market. I will say. I don't sleep on the twins this year. I was talking to morning mush about this. I a future on them when the central they had also the ad. I'm looking up now. It some good decent beam coming into twenty nineteen four. I think it might have been two or three years ago. They were my hot hot sleeper picks like navy or the World Series. They did not. But they have match hepler. Lucas duda. Minute didn't make the playoffs two years ago. The beat them, right? Who else did they get par? Buxton's been on L Nelson Cruz right Nelson Cruz who low key as the most home runs in baseball. It's like five years. We'll talk about that on marching Perez. He's like shooting. They ask these pieces. They can be scrappy. I don't know. I don't see my twins and my find their future. I never future before it might take it moving on. Did you see what Stevens? Hey, Steven to this week. I mean, it's crazy. Did you see the little segment? I did I'm drawing a blank don't tell me. What is something CC Sobat thea? Yeah. I saw you blocked it. We'll play on. I can't remember let's play right now for everybody listening. Keep CC Sobat. A crunch berries not off of it on it. Keep on the berries. Sees a bath is like the male version of Oprah. They're better when thick I want to wait going keep it. Oh, I challenge. All right. Stay off. Stay on the crunch berries. I must up. That's that's a stay on the crunch berries. Stay on him CCC about the is like the male version of Oprah. They're better when they're thick. Oh, yes. Yes. All right now line from Stephen a Smith. I mean, he's he's relatively joke. At this point. I think Stephen Smith like people people kinda like deal with him like do with francesa anything he says is idiotic and ridiculous. But he's also so he's like the last entertaining personality left at has assure. Oh, he's impel belts a little more. You know? 'and up. Yeah. Right. Stephen Smith is no there's routinely clippers another one the other day. Oh, I don't know. If you tell the clip of him saying hell EON bell should go. Do the Panthers and Victor Cruz and someone else will on the set looking at him. Like he was crazy because they're like they have Christian McCaffrey receivers. You know, they need receivers Vickers is facing very funny. He catches ten balls game. He's basically one receiver in the win the NFL. And he's a Ryan back is he has no idea. But he does have a point Stephen. I it's now it's in bad taste. So let's just make it out that we're not doing this invents as so that way, you can't say that because I stopped you. But right had to get that out there. But I mean, see sucks when he's skinny he does. The worst two year stretch of his career back in twenty thirteen twenty fourteen hit a four eight seventy array combine those two years, and that was when he he cut out captain crunch which used to eat a box at a time. Which is such an outrageous thing to do a box of cereal at a time do that. I don't even really like I can't even finish a bowl of cereal on its don't know how you do a full full box. But I see. Yes, it's true. The cici's I can't speak to Oprah. I don't know about Oprah being better when she's happy how how he doesn't get any flack for that. So many other people would would he's just like grandfather into being episode everyone. If KFC said that like on Marshall radio. There will be a deadspin article written thirty seconds before he even said it had to be desperate article. And no one says anything but EBay go on sorry. But with C C, N sure, we've set it forever that he's better when he's fat these jokes. Do you know they're a little harder to say, no this heart shoes. But it's they're still true. Serena Williams, just walked on the fuck and stage at the Oscars. I hate her so much moving on. No. But he like it's in bad taste because he almost died a few months ago heart situation, but he's not wrong. I mean, did you see that picture of him golfing with Hicks? Don't think. So it is clear as e how skinny. Often have in the blog. But I definitely tweeted it. I mean, so could find it for all senate's you? But it is. I mean Hicks kind of looks fat. What's going ex, but he Kiko pounds. Maybe Hicks thick at this point. And thick the I t h so, you know, it's all ungracefully in that part. But. Yeah. I'm a little concerned about losing losing that much weight. I mean, he looks like I just found it. He looks like he lost two hundred pounds. No exaggeration. So. Hold on. I'm saying to you. Now, we're gonna get your live reaction to this. Where are you? And you should have received that on your phone. Okay. I got it. Oh, yeah. Wow. And that is. Yeah. It looks it like a drug problem, basically, say shit on cocaine and Hicks. I mean Hicks. I mean that Hicks data. Yeah. I mean, but its stomach does look a little bigger. But he's a dad dad looks bigger than. I know it's astonishing. Hey, I don't like that. I don't like that at all. But I'm like fifteen more pounds and you'll be fine. Did you see the Yankees with whole wigs thing? Yes. I mean, we're just wearing way. They're doing photo shoots with wigs or something Brett Gardner. One. Was absolutely terrifying. Frankie came over to. Yeah. I ruined his day. Or whatever literally ruined. I mean, he does not like pick on. But I was tough your boy Noah Syndergaard back in the news. You see that one tweet. I feel about that one. Then you, quote, I mean, I'm blocked from send someone send it to you like how to screen up bubble gum on. Yeah. Yeah. So that I no I was on somebody Instagram explore page in popped up. When he goes, I've come here to come here to bubble gum and kick ass. And I'm all out of problem. He posted it on his Instagram with the picture. I tweeted I was like this can't be real quote Canet. No human being can be that insufferable everyone immediately. At me, all this is from days uses from dazed confused, blah, blah, blah to movie quote while. Okay. So it's right. Then it wasn't like a real quote to it wasn't original row. Quote, the no proo kind of did prove my tweak wreck. But regardless he still insufferable unfunny deuce bag for quoting that and thinking that it's fun. I've never seen days and confused so hand up so I either so, but I I have like I'm pretty sure it's even allow Sean things when he was on the prices, right? That slogan. I've heard this logo before I've come here to do X. Yes. All out of X. Yes. I have heard that before. But. You know, it didn't click immediately. But it doesn't matter. It doesn't. I don't care. You know that it's where movie or not it's still makes him insufferable. The fact that he thought that was funny to put on with the caption like all of it just very classic Nossa. That's also like when baseball's back. It's like when we're making fun of no Syndergaard again, like we're actually back like at something else to someone tweeted at all the rain, the rain things thrown in the rain. And and he was just he. There was something else too. With. Something with like a catch. No way falls me. Let's see. Don't try to raise. No because he will hear it as I got it. So he put up a picture of him, obviously shirtless fishing on a boat. And it goes he says his cash, and they say, there's plenty of fish in the sea dot dot dot just looking for my trophy. What Frist is that another movie quota? I don't. May four. It's definitely definitely movie, quote, just look. He is crazy is the worst person on this planet the single worst. Thank god. He's on a Yankee magin that shit show shit show. All is Instagram's 'cause cer- Graham. But whatever he's something else. Thank god. Imagine if he came over to the Yankees like how we'd have to spins on that. It'd be real tough. It'd be like, oh, no Syndergaard stopped reminding me kick your ass. I hope he does. I hope no cigar comes in the office. Punches me in the face of great publicity, easy lawsuit. Hope easiest lawsuit ever could retire off if he'd probably be suspended, it'd be it'd be awesome. Incredible people. Yeah. Someone said that to to make because he actually threatened to do that to me. Yeah. Be great. The unbelievable. I welcome come to my office. Take out take us both out. With one punch. You won't Posey. Yankees hypnotize tonight at a team bonding activity they were hypnotized how do you feel about that? So we were talking about this on borstal radio a couple of weeks ago about hypnosis and stuff. I would like to try to be hypnotized, but I'd like to I'd like to consider myself to mentally strong to be hypnotized. Okay. I don't want. I don't wanna try just in case. I do actually get I will say I feel like Brett Gardner is a similar way. And he was asleep. Like if this would refuse it and be like magic magic as a real estate troop cop. It's not even being a hard. Oh and saying you don't believe in it. I'm saying like, your your mind is too strong. Where you can't let someone else infiltrate it Gardner refuses to strike out in the playoffs. But he's fifteen pitch at best. There's no, Mike. You could argue there's no more mentally strong guy on the team then Brett Gardner like the guys there. He's dealt with New York for longer than anybody's the longest tenure guy here. So the fact that he fell asleep is alarming and magic might be real. I will say years ago probably five years ago. I went to some sort of carnival state fair type deal with my cousin. And he was with his his his now wife, and she got put on sage during hypnosis thing. And she got hypnotized that he slapped her that my cousin slapped her ass in like a sec kneeling not in a good way. And they got they. Going to fight an hour long fight because of it. Real it was it was the real thing possible. If people are calling off talking about it their experiences. I mean, even America's got talent on your watch. But Howie Mandel gets hypnotized shake someone's hand, and he's a huge germaphobe. So to be honest, like I've always been somewhat sceptical of it where it's like, oh, I think these people are in on it. You know, it's an act there just ain't on it. But I don't know seems like firstly recently hypnosis is just more and more entering my. You know, my orbit my world end. I do not want to be apart. Yeah. I don't know when we're down in Tampa. Let's ask you about that that will be like a daily will asked every single interview that real or did you fake this and get thoughts because magic crazy man, but over there hypnotize winning World Series? What if what if Greg Berga hypnotized into becoming like Barry Bonds? Yeah. I wouldn't mind. I would be. That's a great strategy. Hypnotize Severino to not give up home runs walked people. I like that. I remember I once had an idea this was a few years ago when the inky is one of the one of the years that didn't make the playoffs. And I thought they knew the spark, and I said the inky should have gone to a a psychic medium someone talks to the dead. Have you ever had? Yes. And just had George Steinbrenner yell at the team just like bring back the goes to George to yell yell and everyone like he would have back in the day. What was your experience like doing that? I want to my dad my dad had gone a while my dad gone probably twenty years ago. And he said it was like really like powerful right after his dad died anti said the lady just kept saying something about lemons like your dad really wants you to know something about lemons. And he's like all right. Like, I don't know what that's about. And then like a few days later was Kentucky to some horse race. And there was a I think a horse called the lemon drop kid or something bet on it and at one and so at once I heard that as I try so anything that could you know, it's gonna get me money from the dead. I don't wanna try it. So I went my dad little bit after my grandma died, and yeah, it was I mean, it it's tough to tell. How real is. When my dad walked in the room, the medium was like your dad walked right in with you, which like keys, such it's not that hard to guess that. My dad would have it the dad, but to do that right off the bat like he could just be alive. You know what I mean? And then the thing screwed so it was on and off there's some general things I felt like all right? This just some general. And there are some things that he would hit on. So I would like to go to I go to a different one probably had a curiosity. But it is. It's fascinating. You wanna try? It. Would you maybe try one down in Tampa? Tampa medium just tell us the future of the Antes. Let's different there's psychics and mediums. Are there's like the future. And then there's the talking to the debt. Oh, okay. Okay. Okay. What so medium is the death one, right? Yes. Let's ask about Jacoby ellsbury. What's he doing? What's he doing? Is he dead? Like. Yeah. Like, what's he doing now that he's dead? I should've talked about Syracuse. We can was pretty wild figure saves the end, but let's DM's real quick. By the way, follow us on Instagram. We finally create a short porch Instagram account for us because we've been doing this for a year and just forgot to do that and instruments the most popular like social media out there right now. So I in classic fashion forgot to do that for a year. So we're back. We it's called the underscore short underscore porch. 'cause short wasn't available. But yeah, I tweeted out we have a resounding two hundred seventy six followers, so far, which is great. Let's increase that as we go. So I said we'll do DM's from there. So the first one I think screen Sean on for two good one. Actually, they came in very hot. I'm hitting all the wrong buttons right now. Okay. First question here from John Smolen? Question for the next report. How do I get my friend finally realized Greg bird is the worst? He's already sent me his spring training stats. He's been like this for years. Please help I responded my Twitter. I think that's the easiest way to his real that he is for every spring training. Stati sends you some back regular season set. Yeah. Exactly. And we're just like do the men in black flashy thing with your face every time like spring training. You just forget it. And you only watch maybe don't watch spring training. That's you do it convince him watching the regular season. And that's been training. Like, we do with everything. Besides tell Tyler Wade next one. This is a good hypothetical send more of these. Because he's a very good. This is from Nick Teerlinck. Hypothetical primarily for because I'm more of a Knicks fan, but we can spin it to you in some way. But Greg bird not on the opening day roster and the Knicks don't get Zion or Greg bird on the opening day roster and the Knicks geds I on. Tough that I think it's I am like a casual Knicks fan. I don't you're probably bigger Knicks fan. You are extent than I am. I like them to win and watch the games. And even I'm gonna say Greg bird on the roster next gets probably but fuck I like like so much on. But my thinking is if Greg bird makes Ross was probably, you know, we had a good spring training, and it just a hoodwink that means we got hoodwinked again. But it just as opening day roster. So could last two weeks, and then you know, comes right back Nick still Zion affects twenty years. Okay. Fair fair. How would you spend on the giant? So you want Russell Wilson. Do you want that trade ourselves? Rumors. You want him? I mean, I'm not even paying attention to those because I know that's happened. Eating garbage. I don't think. Yeah. Yeah. I don't think. That's I don't think I saw this weekend. Like was jaw-dropping. Wow. Debbie wild. I would do it with like two next year. Probably. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I would still want to. Yeah. That's fair. That's fair. All right. I only selected to. So let's do we'll do two more gonna pick. Right. Only right now. So this should go smoothly. Let's see. I was looking at my name's I've I've a pretty decent one. Maybe one we could have put more thought into. But we'll just do it on the fly from at metaphors Hauer, power lines and metaphors is good. He's going to powering the Harto's on the roster. The which hate if they were on the Red Sox. So he said like void Gardy. Clint Frazier like basically who on the Ke's would we hate if they were on a rival team. I think Luke Voight is a good example. I mean, we love him because he's the Anki. But you look at the other teams they hate him. Our judge not someone you probably hate, you know, he's got that jeeter sorta quality to him Clinton Frazier. I could definitely see us heyday. I mean, we love him. But because he is not lightning. Rod if he was on another team. I mean, even Anki fancied him, which is crazy. But anyone with basically the way I'm thinking of it is anybody with a personality if they're on another team, I would hate them. So it's almost a compliment to say that we would hate you on another team is sort of a compliment. Okay. Yeah. I guess. Yeah. You wouldn't hate Miguel into hard on their team? Like, right. He's doesn't do say anything gleyber Torres. Same way on got Gary Sanchez. I almost hate when he's on the I don't know how I feel if he was on another team probably fundable. Yeah. Would you hate Gardner? Do you hate Dustin Pedroia, right? So I guess it's the same thing. I guess not. He shaved his face. She looks czar. Like, I wanna hate Petrolia, but I respect his grit and hustle to degree which I feel like is similar to garner. Jury has had a better career than Gardner voice. Probably the answer because they would suck his dick in Boston. They would love him. They would eat everything. He does. That would be he'd be like there'd be. Yeah. That would definitely be the number one. I do love. How Red Sox sheds hate him? And think he's like a Gaba. Goo, and you know, he wears jersey half button. That almost makes it it makes you love me more. How much the Red Sox despise him? And how good he isn't how they just can't shut him down. Yeah. It's great to have a player. Like, I like we said the Red Sox always sort of have guys like that Anke. Have key is a great personnel. And he is everything he is what people associated juice bagging. Yep. This is the forty s underscore Patrick. If you had to choose one who would you want Jacoby ellsbury starting lineup. Greg burn the lineup for the whole season. One hundred percents healthy. Greg bird. Yeah. Probably. Well, actually, so they're healthy. Doesn't mean they're, but they're healthy. Right. He can't get rid of them. Yeah. And they can't be sent out dealing with whatever they're doing. The problem with a healthy bird is even if he's healthy doesn't mean he's seen him be healthy and not be good. But the thing is if Elvis we in the lineup every day the outfield is crowded enough already where garner Frazier than sitting every and Frazier sitting everyday, so I guess I'll take I guess I'll take Greg bird. I don't say Berg because like you said before it adds, the left eve opponents ellsbury lefty too, but but he's not real person. Yeah. He's not the power bat. That's power bird. Okay. Let's do one more. The quick story. Everyone always asked you think we're making trays the deadline. Really depends. How the rotation is gonna go is tolerated. Just giving us blue balls all again, or is he legit this time. That's from Sam Spicer. If you actually were to say, you're asking right now, I do think I'm hopeful. So I am hope he's so important to the team. Like, we said that I am just very hopeful that that he's going to be better. I mean, it's almost he knows he's you know, this is a huge year for him. He knows he's not lived up to you know, what he's capable of. I'm hoping for the best. I hope he does. Oh, yeah. He looks his swing looks good. What rocks? So I'm very I do think I think he's going to make the team. I have I have some faith. I think they want to believe in him. They they like we said that. So I like to say that he's legit and me, otherwise, let's go sorry. So now, we're gonna do real quick Syracuse. I was in Syracuse this weekend. For the game. I managed to get drugged Friday night Xanax, and I don't do drugs. Really? But I. Zanex three. What do you mean? You got Salix Sola. After after the bars, we went to a frat invite us over like, you know, drink whatever play pong like why not Friday night like nothing else to do. We're here for reason. Like, you know. You know, very I stay hotel Sheridan Sheridan like there. They gave us a suite upgrade sweet for like, no extra money. It was unbelievable. We had like two sweets was great like eight of us. But we went to this frat they were playing beer pong with jungle juice, and I just kept drinking. It all of a sudden like my brain shut off. And I just woke up the next morning. It was ten in the morning. I was in bed. So I have no recollection of what happened. And I and like I mean fraternities, you know, they put whatever the hell they want in in in jungle juice. You know, I used to date a girl in a sorority. She she would say that lot and just continually drink it, which was crazy. But yeah, I got Xanax one hundred percent. So this is quite a leap to say that you got Saddik. You don't know that it was annex jungle juice in a frat. I would say like ninety percent sure there's some something some some crazy shit in there. We're playing idiot. We shouldn't have been blamed beer pong with it. But that was scary feeling. I said no I do anyone else. Get everyone was drinking beer. You're the only one drinking Deng. That's what I was told. I don't know really stupid and then Saturday. We after the game we have lost to Duke, and you know, the campuses dead. No one's going out. Really? So we were all sitting around the game is at six on ended like eight and Welson around. We're deciding you wanna go out and make it to the bars. Do whatever I was down. And my buddy he had these energy pills that are being pharmaceutically tested. And like, I don't know if they ref the approved or any of that how does he have his let's let's just say without giving too much detail like is companies just working with them to like advertise, basically and like make commercials for them. And and I took and he just like, yeah. There is basically rebel. And I took it and my heart was racing like three thousand miles an hour. And I was I was honestly like sweating freaking out. We either gonna walk around campus to like cool down. Then we went to the bar. I woke up. The next morning. I woke up today, and it's almost like an even go to sleep. My heart was still racing. I thought it was going to die in the car ride home. It was I was freaking out my heart. I have I end like no one else took the I think my other buddy took it. And he gets like a weird reaction when he drinks like vodka like allergic reaction, his face red and shit. So that was happening along with the energy pill. He was under the world. So we end up driving home in like, I thought I was dying. I thought it was having a heart attack. It was it was a crazy feeling. I didn't know what to do. So, but I'm still alive. I'm now completely back to normal. But it took like twenty hours to get back to normal this fucking energy pill. It looks like it's an aquarium when you look at it. It's like it's like blue water. I don't know. I don't wanna fuck it. I'm that's people always say I've always heard like for from high school and stuff that when someone offers you a random pill. That's off the market is that you should take it. Definitely one hundred percent. That's the way that's the way to live life on top of that in the morning starting my day with a coffee, which I don't really drink. But I'm getting into it and a red bull and that made me think of Tommy Canley. Did you see this? Tommy Canley story of what he used to do straight years. He would have six rebels and two coffees every day for six years. I mean, he will die young age. It's a shocker diary. That is crazy. I had one rebel one coffee. I was running through a wall. I was I was most active, hyper person in the world, all the bars and tailgates freaking out. And then I did the energy later on top of it. But I if I shit. Oh, yeah. Today was actually the buckle at that. Is we had a four hour car ride? It was tough anyone involved. There was listening to the show that was in the car. I'm sorry. But I was shit your pants in the car. No, let's say the farts weren't like the best smelling the world it was as a four hour car ride. I felt like I trapped my friends in a car like in a prison. They said, no scape. But whatever where we're still alive. You other things shadow calling the bartender at Syracuse guys. The man big big short porch guy. He's actually involved with the big brain thing. We're doing, you know, the big thing like hit shit. Yeah. He's pitching to he's got. He's got a bourbon company or something like that or a whisky company. So pretty legit. His business card was wooded. Crazy nuts, dick. I've never seen that mean either. But I would be hooked. If I if someone had to be a wouldn't business card. I would hire I almost got splinter from it was like Saint it's still have it. Let me show. It's a now, I'm just also I'll I'll talk about real quick. I also went sort sorta left. I went to back. I went back to Fordham yesterday. But instead of Syracuse Duke, it was a Fordham Saint off incher forum loss by twenty points. Oh my God. With the three right? You only count by threes only count by threes, baby. Here's the thing. Can you see it? Yeah. Look at it's cool. Thick it is too crazy. This is great radio. Yeah. This it looks cool for everyone that can't say, which is everyone. It does. Look what else we got here about a really terrible hat had the return out of embarrassment because my friends basically bullied me because I it was the worst looking hat in the world that was tough tough weekend. And then the guy in front of me. So everyone's going nuts at the Duke game. And this guy was wearing a Syracuse hoodie, and he was Duke fan. He basically was rooting for the team was winning the entire game. Like, whoever had the lead. He was just rooting for them. I don't know he was mostly insufferable human being ever. And then at one point when the when Duke. Like a big three whatever he so like we're in the upper deck. So every I mean, it's like sitting in every every over the, you know, it's very confined not spacious at all. And he took a step and he missed the seat and miss me. Missed what we were standing on. He stepped in nothing, and he just fell down a row of seats at just absolutely bodied a little kid like a six year old kid just got destroyed by this guy. And he also said Cameron who's the number one player in the country. This guy's just delusional person. But he felt that a kid I probably did by chance because that's what do people do. Terrible people. So fuck Duke. And that's really I mean, no one really cares about my weekend. I just had to kinda just say that loud about the whole me being drunk thing. I'm just going to stay away from those being drugged in you. I would say, you stupidly drank oughta jungle, juice and involuntarily took a sketchy pill, and it's the same thing. Same thing. But that's show. We're back. Baseball's back that was honestly like in vigor. I just felt like I was alive that entire like hour.

Episode 246: Swept By The Rays, This Team Stinks + Jay Bruce Actually Retired

"I'm on funnel the free here later. And he about nike. Who what's happening. Welcome to another edition of the short porch presented by bar sports. I'm your host hubs on the other side of the laptop. Tommy's moves tom to belly. Tj and the ones and twos. Martin mush out celebrating his birthday weekend even though he refuses to include us in those plans and invite us. That was pretty rough. I know that that mar. I'm actually glad mortars long to ties it'd be mad but morning invited us to a bar last night that it's admittedly an avenue away from apartment burnt either you. I never got a text. I mean but i got invited at seven thirty pm last night. Does that didn't get invited. Will he thought your home. I would have laughed at. My mom's birthday was friday if there was a big thing for his birthday. Elder the absolute. I would you know. I went out friday night saturday. I was just like. I would have planned to my saturday differently. Had i known that. Marta party at night and i would have went but when he asked me at seven thirty. I was like you know. I my whole day. I'm at the point in my life. Where i need to. I need to know the whole day going out at needs to mentally brace the whole day. Yeah completely and also like not that he knew this but like my mom got sick this weekend. Not cova charity headquartered. And she was just laying in bed the whole. We didn't do anything. We had dinner. Reservations to cancel them all of birthday so happy. Birthday mom hubs. But i would have probably back saturday like may day if i knew something was going on but yeah also that text getting that later texas. It is pretty fun like something that hurts me. He texted spider at nine pm. Even after me in spider did get out of bed and go little sas was there. I didn't even notice exactly pretty funny me and my roommate were. We're in the living room just like hanging out drinking and i look on instagram. And i see zaba post a picture with zaba governments spider and i. I was like convinced. The spider was in that room out conversation with him and minutes. Before and why kodak's weird must be an old picture. And then i sees da eh. Post a story with them. Unlike what did is he. And i went to his room and he was gonna that the like. It was the biggest like wait. We're the how does he get out underneath or not. that's hilarious. Yeah so we're talking about worship birthday and hybrid him distracting ourselves as long as we can. Yeah i mean this is crazy. This is crazy. They're so bad they're not good at anything gets swept like that. I thought for sure they'd got to win today. Especially if the dj ties the makutu cole was really good and nope they are so lifeless the play. Everyone has the wrong approach except for dj. Dj's coming around. He looks more like himself every every day. I feel like he's like it's like become thing where you look at his. Oh he's got two hits like feels like he's going to have like a five game stretch soon where he sitting three fifty by the end. Yeah hey hopefully. That's something because it all starts with him. Really you know if he starts going then maybe some. You know it's contagious but it wasn't contagious this weekend. There so bad the plate call hits the homer today. But i mean other than that is last two weeks for dreadful. I mean he hits. I got so bad that he hit he hit that she run homer on friday nights. Eight two to now. I like was mad about it. Looking homerun. four people were like. Oh you can't be happy about good things. Mike who gives a fuck eight. Nothing eighty two. Who cares. I think that homerun is crazy as it is may may upset fans more than more than made them happy cow as a whole because it's like oh this and it's like the back there colorado to even though we said he had all the home runs in the post for sure still just has that reputation for whatever reason why this is when he fucking at your home run and like and i i take myself as a pretty pro giancarlo guy like when i i'm like on the last part of the train before people jump off. I feel like people get on weight. I hate when they boo him and shit. I mean he just hasn't been good last two weeks. Today was a nice home. run to get. He's on board that scored first. For the first time. I could forever. But i mean just everything. All weekend is so bad. The thing that really sticks asked me that is inexcusable Bats going cold. Listen it's not ideal when one through nine or cold of now. Dj less less cold. But you can't you know it just. That just happens the starting pitching on paper. We knew that it was going to be up and down the defense being this bad as inexcusable. Aaron hicks the fuck you doing out there and centerfield kick dick taking that. He takes routes general all the time. And like you know somebody makes up for it but that ball let fall in front of him and then kicking the line. Drive up the middle where the nino is running around third and it's hit hard where he charges that ball and we know hicks his arm. He could've thrown out there. And that's a that's a possible game. Changing play said he kicks the ball around barely gets in the second base. Clint at least it's about rates up for it. Yeah i mean he's another thing. We didn't get to jay bruce retiring. That's next this ridiculous also. I want aaron boone fired. Yeah this'll all we're all going through the motions of today and hicks. I hicks his first on the plate. Similar jay bruce. Where i i think like. Oh this is the one that's going to. You know people like alexey. He can hit the ball. He comes up with these spots. And he just nothing ever smoked. I'm like lifeless. He has zero confidence. He so loss out there. There's no reason he should be out there every day and centerfield like brett gardner should be everyday center field right now. You should be like. I don't care how many years you have locked up there and hicks. It's also like if george was alive and this was a very georgia's alive weekend but air next to be traded and boone would be fired. So boone is your next. Boone is the next thing know also have happened so long ago. I like our hicks would just be getting off the team. Arab road have been fired a long ago. But yeah i mean this it is almost laughable at this point. It's getting to a point where something's going to have to get right like let's bottom out completely. I don't know what has to give but how much. How much deeper is this rock. I really didn't think it could get much worse than than friday. I really didn't think so. But this was to lose what coal the than it wasn't his fault at all. And i almost think we should four the d. h. Have cole hit a few balls. He's got a few home runs through his to his career. I'd love to see him at the plate would take anyone at this point. You you can't tell me to garrett cole wouldn't fight up there like he would see pitches sixth pitcher at least they would be better than what air next to him. No question about it. Wow sometimes so yeah so. I mean we'll go. Let's go to jay bruce. Now there's so many different ways to bounce around her before we talk about jaber so let's first talk about our friends at rome. They've been with podcast a while now. Most of us most guys try different ways last longer in bed thinking about baseball thing about the yankees and just i could last for days thinking about the yankees play baseball right now.

Spicer's five dollars jay. Bruce retired Shape you said he was gonna home. Runs the guy retire before. May if we go back. I don't know when exactly that podcast embiid was early march somewhere around there where we really got into jay bruce. Few big home runs this year in march. It was like. Oh he's the worst he. I could not have been more like if you only the things we're gonna be so bad. That he was going to retire is giving up. he's given up their profession. he's given up his profession. he's just saying no more. I cannot do. I'm glad martin. He's not on this podcast because like he could take the biggest victory lap right now over me. I don't like admitting i'm wrong. But there is no way to argue. The fact that i said this guy was going to be a meaningful player and he just suck and retired in two weeks I cannot spend as a win really hard to be worse than what he was for. This team really hard actually get the positive like what would have been a worse result. Have that one hit right. Did have a. He didn't have warrior. The it was the second single home run but like there's not many our thumbs worse than like retiring equally so bad that you were rendered useless by the team that you realize yourself. Hey this just ain't worth it anymore. Like they're going to me. So i'm just going to retire and he's not i mean hey obviously didn't work out with the but really good career three. I can't believe he's a career to forty four hitter. That seems higher really. That's a higher than i thought it would be. Oh that's lower than. I thought well from what i saw just now about two hundred points higher than you would for total hits for the yankees so yeah great like mine. Most i mean coming into this season. My main memory of jay. Bruce was like good player on the reds. You hit tanks with the red's just thirty home runs. Maybe two to seventy or something like. He's a little worse than joey bottle. But he's still really good. That was basically my opinion of jay. Bruce for the last ten years at boy you laughed that reputation in the stanford did he have did. I did i dream the stat tents. Yes he's had ten seasons of twenty homers more. That's pretty good. I mean three hundred eighteen dollars. Nothing scott yeah. No i mean he. He had backed up at finished. Top ten mvp voting for the reds view. Here a the on the broadcast. Like okay and paul near like a really good discussion Like retiring or paul neale was talking about like. I think i didn't catch that. About how art is it. You know your whole life you. You've done this every day day in and day out and just what it's like to hang it up like he still dreams about it At night and stuff and paul used ever occurring dream where he didn't have his views on time for a game and the game started or something. I thought that was interesting. Come after the nightmares of being like a baseball player. But yeah. I just thought it was a interesting conversation. Yeah there was also. I did catch the problem broadcast where k. Was explaining the opener to him. And o'neill is like. Yeah but like now irl hitches. He's amazing well about the nineteen games against the yankees and he never gives up the craziest part about this is like the race. Pitchers don't change. They're all the sidearm like ryan Is it ryan anderson. Know who's their sidearm. Guy thompson ryan. Thomas brian thompson. That guy sidearm. We've know what to do with him and the craziest part about all right thompson. Diego cassio fucking us springs. All these guys get shelled by every other team and to us they just know it now. The i think there was an article written in the like the yankees faced the the least amount of fastballs in the league other than the texas rangers and teams. Just they just why. We don't change our approach. marcus. Tim's does nothing. And you want to say like oh. You can't find the hitting coach of these exchange. I mean you can't tell me that because like a good hitting coach could see something like he could he would he would change it. They don't change a thing and grant. I know aaron judge and called at the same kind of player and like you can't truly like reconfigured their brain but like there's a reason that teams aren't throwing team fastballs anymore and they know that we can't hate breaking balls in all kinds of started when the remember colors to us like twenty seven th street curve balls In the playoffs twenty seventeen eighteen seventeen. Yeah excellent it all started and we couldn't do a thing with it hasn't really changed since then and team just doesn't hit the ball in the zone. Yeah the raiders. Have a ton of confidence. And there's no reason they shouldn't and they completely have a number and every other team hits them it's crazy to every other team hits but us and they just they walk in yankee stadium and they just own the place and it's completely true. There's no there's no like backing like is like trying to go at them right now. Like they just fucking owns the ticket and and boom keeps saying the same shit and data point with words a level of arrogance at this point. Nearly see that you're getting shell by the race time in and time out like knowing they're gonna thirty one hundred curve balls and just using change your approach just like refusing proven get better is just so self centered and i wanna hitting to come in. We've never seen a computer screen before. Come in he doesn't pay attention. he's not he's just like adjusted elbows and or loan that all yeah following him all near would be the ideal heading era heartbroken. Let's give them a job. Yeah i'll era art right after a break up a pours art into something fixing. Let's get him stop. Listen the coldplay and get him in the dugout. How many times have you heard aaron boone. Say this these quotes bad series. It just got to be better period. We're getting punched in the mouth. Right now you've got to work you've gotta find you gotta grind your way through it enough with the cliche pal. Just an isis. The same shit. I've thought we'd today arab boone is a substitute teacher. And that's probably the white house like sees him like i would. There's no way that they respect and authority show after friday's game. You heard that he was a meeting. You know no one to talk about what he said. But clint was like. Yeah when he talks like that like you gotta listen to crawl kind of the same thing and then they come out on saturday and it's like he didn't say about were a little bit better. I mean they had glasnost on the fucking ropes on saturday twice in the first and second inning. Disguise throw a single strike They load the bases in the first gardner grounds out. Second inning they low. Dj does finally get ahead only look do anything. Judge strikes out horrific bat in the second on the second would they have. They had two men on. I believe that human then hicks lined up a second. It's just a straight five. In the first two innings glasnost pitch count at fifty five sixty pitches and then they just allow him after that. Pretty sure one base runner reached on glass on the rest of the game. It's like the first two innings. They they kinda like work through it so they worked as a work discount and then it just completely went away after allowed glasnost settle in and it was just an absolute joke. Fucking oftens of Performance once again it was just distinguish like that's such a cliche to say i feel like to say it has no fight really. The fox like team having fight but it just feels like they have no Aaron judge today struck out. I think it was in the fifth. It was after the makings gametime single thing and like him getting mad that he struck out made me less map. Like i like when it makes me because sometimes it just feels like there's no fight and no fire in the team at all and it certainly feel. Yeah he's so what he goes. Today judge was over. Four three strikeouts tonight and then let's see over his last. Let's see entering today. He was four the last twenty one so now at that. So he's four. I last twenty five now which is a one sixty batting average. The top of my head. Correct correct yeah. So that's not going to cut it mixed between that. Is that one game where the two home runs. They still lost that game. Obviously because they've lost fucking million games in a row but it's just not gonna cut it. None of this is gonna cut it. And i have my next part of this. Is aaron boone. Actually like how much worse is this. Half the get before boone gets fired because that is that is one of several things that can happen. That could be a shock to the system because this team needs a shock to the system and look forward to coming for a few more weeks here on not much is going to change personnel wise. Aside from would assume. Mike four gets called up on tuesday wants. His ten days is up in the minors. Which i believe it's up tomorrow So he should be. They have the day off on the napley braves on tuesday so soon ford. It'll be up here. If he's not then. I generally think that he likes slept with cashman's wife or something which i don't think he is very respectable. Gentlemen but what like okay. Let's i yeah i would. We odds that boone survives the survive the year as he like. He's fired at some point season because this is a there's no contract extension coming. I think he's fired. I don't think he's back next if he's fired in the middle of this you don't think you don't think it's going to get so bad that he's fired. I think we're don't buy them again to a point where it's like like officially want the yankees to fire like i know you're gonna say how do you fire manager after fifteen game. But but gene games due to say he's not inspired confidence among fans outside of the savages in the box like there's nothing that he's ever in a buck and change a life. There's nothing about our boone. That's ever giving inc like it's not like it's too is though you know it's like it's like not even i wanna say his fall. It's like that's the guy you hire. You hire i to be your puppet to be. You know this guy who's going to befriend the players. You know girardi rub them the wrong way towards the end. It's like poor guy's got rubbed the wrong way. But i'm not going gets you. I'm just saying like so ridiculous that we're looking back on. That's why they fired gherardi because despite like in twenty seventeen them like getting to game seven hundred with no expectations and he got fired because he wrote guys the wrong way plus the organization. You really look back. And it's like fuck made the wrong decision to myself. Oh i thought it was time to move on from like i thought it was time for a change. They just hired the wrong doing it for. I'm yeah. I'm sorry to go back. But i didn't i but i then got convinced once i like heard all the reason it was like okay that makes sense but i mean at the time when you consider that like i mean not to get to dwell on the past two months but like the yankee matt. You're so much fun and made the playoffs with no expectations and were a wind wave world series and they fired their manager is pretty fucking breaks. Yeah i know so. I don't know i would say if this continues now. Let's hope what's the upcoming shift. I know it'd be a braves coming in here. So kuhn's gonna fucking hand us are fucking lunch on tuesday and wednesday. I'm gonna game on wednesday. I'm not excited to go. I'm scared of like five hundred. Twelve is like so possible. Yeah and then there then. They go on the road which i think might be. It might be my do some good for them to get out of new york as crazy as that. Sounds like i think i like. The fans are to their credit like. They're getting on them and they should but I think a road trip could maybe be something good. But it's cleveland than baltimore baltimore for four. Think both both series over four and then come back home I don't know man if they come back to the stadium in the month and this hasn't gotten any better. Let's say so. That's that's eight games in the chew. It says ten ten game stretch here if they go like three in seven and they come back the eight and seventeen like. That's i think that he's i think he be like if the is a astonishingly bad so basketball that might lead in the standings like i saw the visual and why seventeen and i was like a like i could also see. Yeah now like i like. They're gonna start hitting like in. Like i think they're going to be competing for the. Are they going to run away with the at least anymore. No it very clearly the level but anyone saying like it's over whatever. But i think just the fact that it's april eighteenth and i get way more excited for knicks games in yankees games is a problem like i like now to nixed credit. They're fucking awesome and they play so hard and they do everything the yankees don't do specifically with defense. What is that. they're the twenty seventeen. Yeah for sure They also play stellar defense. Which is the complete opposite. The yankees team does but they just fight every night and knicks. Games are just inspiring to watch. Like i like i. Obviously i watched both games today. But i mean if if i had one. Tv i probably would chose the game as a guy. Lake is an exciting team to watch their on sixteen winning streak their electric. Like i just think it's such a bizarro world situation where the knicks are just like. It's not even question. The the more watchable team. Right now the yankees and and i generally don't know if i've ever remembered in my lifetime the yankees being this unwatchable. I don't author. Is they compared to next. I was gonna. They probably twenty thirteen when the knicks. The knicks of yeah twenty three to think like in history like the knicks have been more exciting than the yankees like in aloe. Yeah well but would probably take twenty thirteen. Yeah the carmelo kamara committee fire teams like those early teams. Whatever the first couple of years of stat were while the ben francisco and even that team those yanked talking the yankees by themselves like today was like the most excited. I've been to watch a game. Basically just since the last month like the last days i'd like zero interest today. I was like all right at least pitching like that. That's the only thing till over to nikki is like eric. Cole is still really awesome. And like we'd have to look forward to the days bridget's otherwise it's brutal. Yeah and he was once again. Excellent i like they send him out for the seventh. I think there was a few yankee fans to maybe didn't want that. I i listen. He was like ninety something pitches. He retired twelve in a row. I think he was up to nine case he finished with ten. He got the start the seventh. I thought i you know people were getting blunt you can get on of things. I was totally totally totally fine with sending call out there for the seven point where i'm not even mad over that many decisions right camp point to that many things like that was a terrible decision. Well yeah i mean if you're gonna stir i guess yeah i mean lineup was right. I was thinking more like bulk decision but yeah no the bull because embar the bullpens been excellent right. It's just kind of bailed him out in a way of like he killed five more man. This guy's making terrible decision. It's like he's dressed. This guy is definitely but The thing is i mean not that. I don't know how much you know about open gets fired. Who's the manager because it could be still such an infinitesimal chanter. I'd do wonder why nevin would be something. I think it would be like. I think it'd be an uncle or your scranton like watching like he would've. No you know who i seven to. You know who. I compare nevin shows like you can't be your dad crazy. Coach would be nevin for me. They're like the same person in my month. I think nevin was sorry coach. Oh was that. What did that for a while. Like yes and then he he. Did i write. But obviously now the champion. So but that was basically his bill. Nevin ceiling is. Yeah and i've always been a buckeye i would. I would love for them to give buck showalter run. I wanted that in the offseason. I said that. I said i wanted bucking here over. Maybe at the end of the day like it all comes from up top and they don't want a guy coming in here who's gonna have have sane things and then not be there puppet but i don't know man just just show fire anymore like isn't can argue calls like those games against toronto in florida where the umpire was. So bad and boone just fucking sits there and he screams if you words recent clout there. It's like come on man like five dead. The worst team in the american league. They're actually the worst team in the american league record was which is crazy. Yeah you know. It's not realize that the last two games they've been the worst team in the american league. That is perfect. Yeah the tiger repairs and losses in the only team in donna backs in rockies. Thankfully ten eleven daughters has thirteen to another year being. Do you watch them play. And i'm excited to what. Oh did start almost start. Bowers playing thouars facing the padras today dodgers already to know that they're so good man there so yeah power. I mean nasty to them. Those games have been excellent. The st- i i look forward to watching dodgers padres this week way more than the like way more like. They're playing a different score. The the fans are crazy into it. Not the yankee fan. During the games there are they obviously are but like into. Yeah yeah yeah. It's playoff playoff atmosphere. They've they fucking hate each other bench of clear twice kershaw screaming. I'll think i've ever seen him like really have too much emotion out there. Games are studying the yankees just complete opposite as we continue to show. We'll talk to you about a new sponsor and static a long longtime common here. But peter millar with the short porch. Msnbc's and underway. We've been in search of the perfect warm weather. Geared to represent our favorite teams in spring and summer and our friends at peter millar. They stepped up at the play in a big way. You know about all their innovation. Golf foreplay is deck to toe. Head to toe in peter millar and it's literally like fire like we it's crazy like thinking about barstool like seven years ago and then think about like how like peter millar looks like people are combinations with with borstal. A podcast is in day. It's crazy where where we've gotten now departing us with major league baseball and a new series styles. They've got your favorite peter or performance. Paulos quarter zips custom embroidered with logos from all thirty teams. Good in new york yankees and the the yankees stuff is fire. The polos i'm a big of i Those are awesome. Three different colors for the quarters. Ups i think it's gray white and navy blue. They're awesome So it was exciting to see that like they're coming on because it's like yes. We're getting them. That's the nicest compliment you can really give like a sponsor right aided that when you get the email that like their conference yes. I'm getting three something of that. Knowing that we're getting eater. Millar is awesome. And that's why portugal by i'd also pay for it to. I'd have no problem saying oh. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah in the sense on the weekend or even the office people are styles. They're gonna keep looking sharp wherever you want to. Wrap your team whether it be yankee stadium at home. Maybe you're out of state or whatever watching and bar. whatever. You're walking peterman laurie. Yankee stuff via peter millar dot com slash short porch. You're looking pretty good this summer. The teams can hopefully played better to pull you to view the entire collection visit. Pete millar dot com slash short portraits. Peter p. t. e. r. malar m. i. l. l. a. r. dot com slash short porch. You the whole collection there so Peck to this godforsaken team friday. We're talking about play got so bad. I mean first of all michael walker one hitting the team through six innings. I mean it's just so inexcusable. It's like crazy. That's that's happening mike walker. Wanting this team they start nick nelson in the opener as referenced before we're k talk on the opener today He wasn't good nick. Nelson is not if you're going to run this opener bullshit and it's crazy that it was a scheduled opener like we went for like having too many starting pitchers. Nfl like entering the season. So we're now having do scheduled openers. Day after an off day. That's bizarre but then if you're going to do the opener it's gotta be chad green. You're not having nick nelson be your opener. Like what are you doing it. He he never had the zone once out and in that in the first inning and then hands over to my king who continues electric and has now thrown nine shutout innings for this team The start the season he was option down because You know to make way for because they. They used a few guys and they needed more on the weekend But yeah i mean kinky skinny sent down. And he's the only guy. I feel like that's shown up this team aside from obviously garrett cole. Gosh yoka gio and dj. I can't think of anybody else who's consistently doing well but My kingsman excellent But yeah i really wish he just started the game instead of fucking dick nelson why they continue to think they can be raises crazy him. I was just gonna say that it was the perfect example of being trying to raise beat them at their own game just like they did with awe debbie jay half and like just getting like. You're not a smart of the rates like with this voodoo wizard chip. Let the raise to just fucking start. Mike okay just let michael king sorry a starter his entire life. He's proven he can do it in the minor. Leagues even sit. You know you could go six innings at least from the opening weekend like just start fucking gang and then i i it. So it's the way like fuck suck them. I didn't even know how to and that. Just perfect encapsulated in the blake. Why the so frustrating plot is. They're just trying to be like this advanced satin. We have to do this this team. And there's fucking fail over. Yeah and then later in the game as things got really bad. I mean fans is really bizarre but a fans were just throwing balls back on the field while rates were standing there. Ugly scene Definitely not What you wanna see out of your own fan base I don't understand. They was crazy. It was almost like coordinated happening all across the field. It was like anyone who caught a foul ball in the game was basically just throwing it back and it was ugly the halt the game for a little bit. Obviously everyone and i truly do not care. What like mets fans or red sox fans or any type of fence. Think of yankee fans. You're gonna hate us like more like oh this is why. People hate the yankees and yankees. Like not like you're gonna eat. You have a hundred as a hair as a gift. Everyone's gonna hate new york yankees known for buying their teams and all this and winning all these championships and all that. So don't don't tell me. This is the reason why events like you're gonna find reasons to hate us no matter what like we're being up to our Highest manners are all that but This was ugly. I don't condone it as no one should There you can boo all the fuck you want but don't be throwing baseballs back on the field in the middle of that solves literally. Nothing like i. I don't mind having the reputation of name like you know this. Gummy bands or whatever. But you can't do like players can't like if the yankees just like throwing like a bunch of trash onto the field goal wasn't going to hurt anyone who what's the most famous example that i'm blackout. I'd assume the phillies have done that. I'll talk the hockey game boy. Whatever you can start garbage on the field. Let's don't want but at least you know it's not like any player safety issues. But yeah i mean. I get the frustration. Use gotta be gotta be smarter batted. Obviously yeah i mean that's just super really. Wow yeah like. I think it was also a dude. It was like a rave foul ball rank inside. The max goodman tweet it out like someone said like. I hope you break your ankle. I'm like okay. Like maybe maybe string while the fucking cameras are right behind you dude Be an ugly ugly all round. It was nothing was pretty about it. You know they had. They probably the best. They've best chance they had was probably saturday with glass now on the ropes do single montgomery was good. I thought it might confusing myself here. But so he left. She leaves the game in this. He starts the seventh montgomery and he leaves the men on base. I don't think he wanted to leave the game. Nearly eighty six pitches. You look good. The only really made two mistakes the whole game on saturday but he leaves the game with a man on first and then loisy comes in and get an immediate force out the second racing montgomery's runner but then and then laws believe gives up. It's your own home run. They charge montgomery with the run. There is that just like out thinking myself there. Why why do. I think the montgomerie's run jeff force out is. I don't know why. I've never so weird. I thought for sure he was going to get charged with three earned runs there but they gave him even though he wasn't i guess a force out i think because i got a guy right. Can't be wrong. All the lies did was get a guy out that line read one third of an inning zero runs like i guess that makes sense. I don't know you can't go to. I get that confused me though right okay right right but it's like you can't go to allies ago right because yeah yeah you're right. Yeah like he did get an out and it wasn't like knocking. All of a sudden becomes runner. That's true and i think on that that forced a force out. The umpire initially ruled a double play. And but the guy was so laughably. Say if it was crazy the kayak shoot will save rule. The rule them out but yeah. That was a terrible Adore hit a home run great. It was really far. Four forty three but like okay Steamed so so flat. It's crazy off lot. They are legitimately grazie dead dead last. I thought today was an off-white. They should've been favorites today in the night. I thought they were gonna like that would have been like at that point. You're probably gonna lose any way. Give them one more thought that storybook like imagining its home So that that was one missed opportunity. And then i think we would consider his his. It's so weird that they thanked. Tenure probably gets remembered fondly. And you know if he hit a home run. Yeah like if he got up in the night. Let's say i guess it was too long game. Dot point tying home run in the night and he still retired after the game. Like look back like oh we love jay. Bruce went out of yankee. Oh god this crazy fucking. Obviously they weren't going to win today with russia's birthday that was clearly not or was like. Oh they gotta win. It's your birthday and hubs really. I don't know it's faster. He's getting swept an embarrassing fashion in marty's birthday weekend is about as a doubt what you would expect. Yeah oh one. More thing. Clinton not playing. Well it's like. I love from the player at a and i think he should but like whenever he does get in there like she always just take these pictures down the middle very lost out there the throat today. What was up with that. I think maybe he was caught off. Guard the guy was tagging. I or something but balls have pretty decent. There was no way he was going to get the guy at home. And he was almost lined up that way at home and then all of a sudden like mid throw completely redirected it and it sailed over and allow the guy the runs score from second so they got out of it worse things but bazaar but he looks very lost to the plate. A guy that lives are counting on granite. it is early. And i far from giving up on. Clint frazier and the whole team isn't hitting but i would like. He's like the kind of guy if he got hot. It would kind of like this offense. It feel like it's not happening but you know about the rbi's that's crazy. I mean i fully hear it. I was in the middle of doing laundry. Second second straight second most consecutive plate appearances that. Rbi next to jaffna. i believe. Oh yeah. I mean i mean. He's thirty away from naylor or something like that but like still like. It's like sixty some odd plate appearances with an rbi and it's the second most in baseball currently that through me through me through a little bit if you do remember like he did struggle as he said on the podcast offseason. He did struggle the last month. I think the last couple of weeks whatever. And that's what causing like kinda be out of the knicks in the playoffs. If you combine those couple of weeks with these plate appearances here and it kinda does make sense. Yeah no that's not counting playoffs. Okay did hit a home. Run in the playoffs i hit. That's always my biggest gripe would sports. How playoff sats. Don't count into like your career stats. I know. i think it's fair. Did they should count like double. No but then like you're holding individuals accountable for like four mike route white. Make the playoffs pal. I know but you can't blowing white. Blame it on them. Make the playoffs. You haven't made the playoffs. That's that's crazy amid place. Make the playoffs five. I'll always have that have that take. I don't understand playoff stats. don't matter. I think it depends on what you're looking at like i think for the record books the should not maybe like matter. They should account guys lamentable. Woman looking back on house went frazier. Been playing than. Yeah you obviously lewd. The playoffs that stat to me is like saying. He's gone sixty semi plate appearances without rbi. And then. i can show you him hitting a home run in san diego going. It's like okay. Well it's kind of silly okay. Let's look ahead. What's going to change here. What is going to change here. So what what do we do. We need to do something. So the off the much-needed off again on monday. I feel like every off as much needed at this point. This tastes good all right. We'll watch the team yeah. The socks was both games. They've they pull the second one out. They haven't played yet. they lost the first one. Okay socks stop winning games. Those guys get too cocky. It's that's i mean they. I've ever right to the right now but fuck okay. So these are six thirty five games on tuesday and wednesday tyrone pitching the first one gets chuck morton wednesdays Ian anderson against corey. Kluber in anderson almost no hit the yankees last year off right. Yep there's almost no it is. I think voight got the head or whatever but i remember correctly but yes the braves come in. They're six and nine. Did they lose today. Is that a accurate score on series. The braves you did play is and you know they braced by tonight. Sunday night baseball star. They put a cups so they could be six and ten so this might be a battle to the braves are another team. That's kinda struggling. That i didn't expect them to be struggling to be honest but a kunas wild on us albi. Two guys are dangerous to guys that had not gone off to good starts tie on kluber for us at needs to be. I'm more. i'm more confident entitlement coup. But i need a good start from town on tuesday. A guy needs some. I need some good stuff. Six ten combined innings between the two of them which is such a crazy low. Ask ten binding between the between Kluber on five four four and two-thirds and four or no five hundred hundred and born tutored something like that. Just get me. Tendons and how many russ combined six. Yeah they eat now. Would you sign up for cloning kluber. Each going five innings he runs to be. I don't to be honest that loses the game. But right i was gonna say like this point like dots not winged baseball games. It should oh oh yeah with his offense like that's what we thought at the beginning of the year like five innings very runs this point. That's a that's a two to three run loss. Yeah great awesome and then thursday through sunday is the indians in cleveland. They're a little bit more surprising. I thought this year by losing lindores. They've they're both five hundred. Got logan alan on thursday against montgomery. It's six ten start And coal pitches on friday. That trista mckinsey guy who will probably destroy us because he's young and fiery awesome. Jesus tyrone pitched against bieber on saturday awesome. Great and then depressing. I don't even think about cleveland's one of the last places. I wanna think about watching the game right now like it's no way where it's fun to just not playing. That's actually to. Taiwan will not be getting salary. Because he's pushing on tuesday so i dunno eastern fuck that up with their probable so tile will probably be or no. He's thursday airman back problem you're correct. You're proud of correct. Yeah you're gonna get some mike for this week. I think because his ten days are up in the minors. i think that's otherwise he would have been up this weekend. So yeah we got him this week. Man This team is needs a kick an addict somehow. I don't know how they're going to get off. Its dj's quarter after the game. We've had better. We have a better life than we showed the series and we've shown so far were too talented to play. I mean it's the same old shit. Same old shipman it's it's just that at this point. There's really nothing else. Like like i just want to say the same number episode Hit with arms boring positioned. Learn how to play this deal. Maybe starting pitchers the sides guard. Coal can be like better and That's it's not. It is not a fun time to being who who's doing there so they're i sure seemed montgomery gumri as well. He is so far out of the pitchforks area. Montgomery i sign up for this. Every single time when he's given us bullpen wise. Pretty much every one besides like i mean look. He hasn't been great. But like what can you expect guys bitch like six years so like all right. I'm not. I'm not hating lucas. I don't know. I think someone shared at the game like maximum tweeted like that. Were like. where's lucky at the like. Put them in like. I don't know who's putting this is almost like who are like a segment. Like who were the pitchforks down like holding our sports. So i'd say coal montgomery is has been excellent. King has been excellent or gosh yoga and gary. Well let's just. I'm just gonna pitchers right now. Let's go pitches for so green has been good. Very good. title has towns not in this area right now but i mean i'm not asthma. Cause i he's coming back from all hot sesame reports against him yet no has been fin. Been good domingo's certainly in her shitless. He's been nowhere near good. Darren has been solid. Today was like his first run. He's ever going up or second nick. Nelson is certainly not not. He's definitely in the pitchforks area. chattanooga's kluber. Kluwer's is really near the pitch sports. There yeah kluber close. I need him to pitch more than four innings. Game chapman's been excellent. Probably the best. It's really sucks. Because that's probably the best he's ever looked as a yankee. So far not winning eleven strikeouts in four innings for him. Like what is the splitters literally. Unhittable i don't think anyone is actually made contact with the yet. Yeah adjustable has been solid Our brave man. I'm not really terribly out of radio. Audience hardee's pitchfork areas just albert gray j. rey. You could get the final out in the world series. Mardi when hat said no no ring for him. Let's see okay offense. Tj certainly fine geo certainly he had a really good at bat today with the polk down down the line Glacier has been bad pitchforks area. Yeah he's not really. They're not pointed out yet. Maybe they might be holding them. They might be they might. He hasn't been. I feel like when we're listing off the guys in the most not crazy sino. No real quick is obviously watching. These padres dodger games. Totti's has seven errors already like six games after friday. I don't did saturday and sunday. But six enters seven hours a lot of hers slowly. Lebron and as labor struggles. I can't believe struggling this much. I really thought that's honestly one of the bigger shocks concerning where it's like. Okay also struggled bad lessons and yeah and last season was excuse that he just wasn't. He's never this season's power. Yeah what's going on so yeah gleyber. Glacier to me is pitchforks. Territory. what are you doing bell judges. Let's say a begging him today. His numbers these four homers. Eight eight or is The average is finding hope yeses. I mean lets you wish was better. But like he's not pitchforks territory on giancarlo he under the radar right sitting seven or something but for some reason for not as at him read the home. Run today at one. Friday both obviously came in losses. but he what. Aaron hicks is who really aaron and he and he should never hit third man. Gio should be hitting third. He should be. Gop at bats makes contact. Put your show. A aaron. hicks shouldn't be hitting he. Like how like i. I totally now. Like i'm fine with the how you handle. Clint like listen. He's just not hitting like if i can't defend him if he doesn't hit but you can't keep putting hicks if you're gonna punish clint too late. You gotta do like you. Have to hit hicks lower you have to especially. He's just so mentally checked out there. Too like those two defensive. Yeah those those walls and senator were in excu and they were in the same fucking inning. Like he's just not he's just not there and there a presence at the plate gary. We didn't talk about his his little scare the foul ball off his hand. Which i can't believe it didn't break everything but Please start catching with your hand behind your back. Please like every catcher does that. There's no reason you have your hand. They're like i don't need that. It's actually insane that they're this bad and there's really no injuries aside from voight. Everyone's healthy yeah. I wish they were going to be playing bad at least hurt for you. Know five and it's like all right. Well let's get all the injuries out of the way. Yeah because twenty nine hundred. They started slow and it's like well the reason they started slow because half. The team was dead in spring training. The that's not the case right now. Don't compare this the two thousand eighteen. It's a complete different situation tall back. Yeah garner's been good. I have no problems with him when e least puts the battle a ball and he heals jairus retired so we can make fun of many more have good sports but the drop them he really scrutiny literally rent like we quite literally ran zebras. Yunky fans randy away from. I don't know what your twitter mentions. Look like but people are legitimately giving us credit for jay bruce retire. I'm knocking off your life like jay. Bruce panhandle your fans really. Every if he had this battle the star in kansas city not to colorado for the i gotta stop. I always just use the royal they hit. I was gonna say. I use the royals defacto bad team. Just because i feel like when we were kids they were at the worst and like my mind just hasn't necessarily adjusted from that. But yeah like if he was playing somewhere else. And have this bad of our retard. The vitriol of your band is enough to push her manager. It's nuts. But i mean to be fair like he was done. He did not deserted. Keep like Ruina door he's gotten a hit three for twenty four so like he's not a hero by any means but like he's got a hit here here the big man. You can't be too happy. No yeah he's here. He's better in tyler wade Higashi focus certainly not. He's been excellent Every every about with him seems like he just always today. Hit a line out as i said that he had worked good count. Hit of deep ball left. It was caught but it was. It was hit very well. Talk means runs. The bit runs the as well. He's gone seven told bats. You can't say a word about him. Gee i mean there's a lot of people that are not happy with re realize there are a lot of good forts and you can't defend it on the red sox whatever it's like all right well here still bucking billing games. I don't care about divisions. I've always never cared about division standings until july fourth. That's always my barometer. Like i care about how team looks and like what a team's five and ten like whatever. Okay slow starts have what they look like this in the field and like the plate approach in no chance. They're to fucking problem. That's that's a problem. People are benefiting game book fifteen games. It's not a good to win a row like fifteen games. Ten percent of the season like tiny. But it's also a way they're losing intelligent losing the last bad game or whatever It's like there. They go down early and they have no channel. They know they have no fight. The next which is crazy. It's just legitimately great. Might have to make that the title. This show is but it's legitimately nuts and maybe we need to hire tips. Tim's be the manager. Someone tweeted. I honestly would be fine with that like that. They should hire like he could make the same. Sit both aaron boone. And him would be puppets for the front office. Left the front office. Motivate yeah billy lyons only shadow with tweeted contents magic. He's because i was screaming next star the game. And yeah i mean literally wouldn't Tips brought do it once. The knicks win the title. Have tips take over the summer and then the statue in the mix and then he could take over for de blasio to run the whole city. Just doing all do at all. I love tips tips. His favorite thing. He says he's never happy. He's the complete polar opposite of air. He's legitimately never like they didn't see his postgame today. But you probably didn't smile and it's just. He's the perfect new york coach. Any sport like i. I can't believe the bulls ran out of town. It's i like his mantras. He runs the young guys into the ground. Like he's got these guys his mantra mantra saying it. The new teams i right. You know what i'm gonna do. Take these young guys. I'm to run into the fucking i mean. Rj's playing a million minutes a game but he's been he's unlocked rj and it's awesome to see. Yeah so so the yankees six coming up here. I'll be at the stadium wednesday. No i the. I don't think i'll wake up on wednesday and be excited to go. Which sucks think isn't what you want a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to go. Yeah that's on my first game back. But yeah so yeah. What an exciting episode of the podcast. I mean listen. If you're yankee fan we wanna hear everything we just said. Is everything like. We're not sure going the game day. I was like so bored watching them. I was watching highlights of the one world series Just like the yankees winning games. Which i know you're gonna say is what you do. But that was more. Like the yankee game was on. I needed to lift myself up. Something that's me at night. I need to lift myself up at night so sad. Your problem i think the whole one world series is basically the twenty seventeen. Lcs like lost all the games on the road and one games at home in dramatic fashion. I mean obviously the astros win. There wasn't even a there wasn't a single off against the astros some arrive year. Twenty seven seventeen loss four at use them but they want all three home games like garrett had the double judge a home run or no. I don't think there was. Yeah that's a show. I got nothing else. Mush out there. Selmer birthday listen to him that he can put on a happy face in just kind of forget the yankees right now. Because i can't ruined in my life. I go to bed sad. It's not knocker teke girlfriend everyday. Hey they win nope every note and she just knows. We're not gonna have pleasant covers. You gotta be you gotta tell. Just check sportscenter. They lost don't texan. I told her as a yeah dallas sports app to just know what kind of mood i'm in although i'm not an addict like that but Yeah the this isn't fun. I wish they were gonna be a better mood. The yankees legitimately like they to lose like. That's how i interested in the next day. And i'll be in tomorrow will be a bad day too because they don't play although but maybe it'd be nice. The yankees can't lose on monday. So that's nice. Fuck me man. When he looked void back seen him take ground balls was fun the other day. They said he's like two weeks away on the team needs it would suck like him being the Means that we're going through this this for like you know. I don't want to have to wait a few weeks for something like they can't afford to play like this for the last season. It's pretty much these next ten games you know. It's like right against atlanta. It's a four against cleveland's foregin baltimore than they come home. The play detroit and maybe maybe that first home game against detroit is void. First game back. Maybe a little bit after that but these next ten games are big for everyone. I mean i don't know what i mean. How going by the bible most isn't enough because it's then you're ten fifteen then you're twenty five games of the season and you need to go above five hundred these next ten games show some sort of life and i don't know maybe the day off and then just a reset. Maybe but we've had a few recently. It hasn't done shit. So i don't remember also. Yeah that's the show. We'll see you back here on On thursday after the two games against lanta as we gear up you play the indians on the road but until then stay safe paired to keep your thoughts positive. Watch the knicks basketball. Because maybe that will probably get some good games come. I think they've got charlotte next. That's a that's a huge standings. And all that i every time i say he's just even crazy that these the knicks are way more exciting charlotte atlanta tuesday and wednesday. You might wanna watch those inside the yankees to be honest so atlanta might take it to us all right. That's a show. we'll see. There's a later. John's drilling you.

Episode 249: Mike Tauchman Traded and Another Disappointing Series With the Os

"I'm much awesome here. It is later and he is delayed. Nagy twin ooh. What's what's happening. Welcome to another edition of the short porch presented by barstool sports. I am your host tubs on the laptop. No tommy smokes today. The birthday boy. I guess if it's your birthday you don't have to come on the show. I guess that's been a rule That's a rule. It's rule unless you're unless it's just me and then i spent Mardi muslims hear back from farming. And i don't know what you were doing and then celebrating your birthday and not inviting us. but yeah good to have you tease to how you doing my palade. Happy birthday to you. I guess. I'm not taking the ship from. I invited you when when when you like as your mom's birthday how come you never invited me. I technically by doing my head. Dog matters little. Did you know that my mom got sick. On sat on the saturday of that of that day not kovic she was just like food poisoning and i did nothing but stay my room for like forty eight hours. I came back to the city. Are know that your mom was no. You should've just texted me and said hey i'm having people from my birthday little sas. Got the invite over me. That's the inauguration but he did not get invite. It was a it. Was somebody else like. Yeah sure i really don't care as basketball's Yankees news there's stuff to get into. They split the series. Somehow i thought for sure they were gonna take three or four. At least maybe even sweep And i'm also dealing its draft. And i'm dealing with aaron rodgers Wanting out of green bay so this is not a fun. Day for eric's brain. So i pour myself a nice old fashioned to drink through this because living life sober at the current moment doesn't seem like a good move. It's this isn't fun. This is my scape. Two years in a row with a draft just absolutely destroyed my life last year carrying over to this year. I we'll get into it at some point. But the yankee says yankees podcast so it would be doing the fan. Nope packer fan is listening to this. Podcast we saw with the yankees so they split the series We can get into that in a little bit. I think we should leadoff though. Mike talk traded to giants a couple of days ago out of nowhere right before the game. We get back. Juan de peralta. I i never like. I probably already. You're gonna say you don't talk whatever but it hurts. It hurts for me because that guy was a friend of the podcast came on whenever we asked He was just an awesome baseball player. Like two thousand. Nineteen legit awesome. Hit three twenty five for two months ban. When everyone in the world was hurt and then he added injury in boston the calf strain which took him out and he was never able to get back for the playoffs there. I know that bumped him out big time. This is a really good dude and interesting guy really really interesting fellow And i saw this coming in the offseason. That's why didn't want brett garner back on. This team is because these guys do the exact same thing. Talk minutes cheaper younger and better. Basically everything and people like didn't hill asher did there was somebody got christian yellowstone hit last year so many guys hitting a cove and season an initiator. He got a few at bats here. No consistent playing time. He's a good base runner. He was three. I last ten and then he played last night for the giants they get three hits a really good centerfield and And then we get back on the basically doing this trade because the starting pitching doesn't deep enough and the bullpen is a little tax. So they wanna have guys. You can send back and forth. Blondie that has an option. So that's where they're going to do with him. He's a lefty is number. Stink of you. his expected numbers. Oh they're all really good so he probably will produce but this is bullshit. I'm not happy. And this also coincides with. Mike king sent down. So this whole fucking trait stuck. I hated it so much. I don't really. I didn't understand is like i know it premise. Don't have room for them. We know we all have. We have too many outfielders. Not too many great outfielders right now on. It's like what was the reasoning for wendy book and peralta wendy's now he's a top baseball guy. Yeah it sounds like it. it sounds like it. Yes everyone gets when when you first start like a forty overall. Yeah he's the big a bare minimum all. The levels are low like every single one. He's this fat lefty but what's to like. What is the reasoning Send talk for like apple ship. Listen i'm happy for mike because he's going to get playing time there. I mean he was the starting center fielder lesson. I don't know what their field situation isn't healthwise but he's gonna get playing time. There may love already. He beat out attributed third. He had a base. It's in the left side With second hand. Rbi last night too. It's really good. Second like he. He's gonna fit in welcome and they're good sixteen and nine. This giants a fucking nasty. All of a sudden you know. Won't my guy long glorious bat like three hundred. You're they're great. They're like i've seen longoria get intentionally walked this year which i feel. It hasn't happened in like five years. He's batting three sixteen crazy crazy. I've always liked him. And i know you're actually friends with him but yeah talking about hurts it just hurts. The few people not many fewer like look at this guy getting so bent shape over talking man. I just like the guy like some fan. Yeah like sometimes fans just like a certain player like he's a good dude he fucking. It's different for you because you like you literally like hung out with them and you also like he would literally come on whenever i don't know if i said on the pod but so when he was hurt in two thousand nineteen the team was on the road for like two weeks and he was just i think wife is still in chicago there originally from chicago and he hit me up and he's like oh he's a bears fan and i think it was packers. Eagles thursday night football game where davante adams get hurt at halftime after two hundred yards in the first half but he hit me up. You wanna get a drink watch football like you know and he had come on the pockets before and i remember telling talking to frankie rarely about it. It was like it was like. He's like mike talk went on a date. I did but it was really funny and i always remember he. I think frankie ended up coming like the second half of it but in order to dinners at the same time crooks just such a professional such a professional athlete moves. Like you know one dinner. Just not enough or tutors in exact same time just wet the town just fucking you all through a few beers who some football totally normal dude. But on top of that he wasn't good baseball player and he produced for this team in two thousand nineteen like he was legit. Starting outfielder for this team in like people knew. Mike talk with name in two thousand nine hundred and the whole relationship. With with canley and stockman now is hilarious and it had a life in its own. I just really i. it sucked to see and especially. He's i couldn't have wanted. I didn't want garner coming back. And like this is the you know. The cause and effect of that is talking. Does exact thing. And they wanted to create more space than have allow reliever come back and forth and that's more important than having talk men and But meanwhile like then you have aaron judge on the flip side who betrayed outfield depth. But now aaron judge short from traveling from cleveland. Baltimore on a plane. And he's gotta sit out two games so like we're trading outfield outfield. Depth like martin tuchman. You probably go around the league. One of the best fifth outfielders are probably team's gonna. I'm gonna say that like when he's playing his his abilities like that's pretty good to have as a fifth outfielder and you're starting right fielder. Mrs two games now. Because he's sore from travel. The yankees need to learn how to live like. I don't say that right. Yeah it's like. I do on my legs hurt when i travel and delta. But he's got to talk in private plane they got. They got so much on those private. Why why say that and use we sound like such pussies of site. Our best pull are supposedly best players. Can't play because he traveled. Say well the only plays home games. Now koliba good point. You remember when stanton was struggling his first year in new york. I called once and he blamed it on moving furniture. He's like the. I think he said well not not him. Moving to the furniture guys didn't come on time and he's like i just didn't have my stuff like ready to go. You played moving. But i mean hey furniture is not there can't be you can't be at your top top of the game but traveling man. That's that's just tough man and they were just home and now they didn't even change time zones on that flight cleveland. The baltimore so short. Don't change time those. That's where it almost scares me. Right now. is what happens if that's their li- like what happens. When we have to go from new york to oakland he'll be out for four weeks suffer. A someone also had like this is this. Is this the equivalent of like kawhi. Leonard load management like baseball. I thought it was going. That's what they should have said. I'd be okay with that. They're like doing the he gets hurt every year. We're taking them out for like per game or two. You can't argue that because it's like and the because they all know the end goal is hey we want one hundred thirty five games. Aaron judge this year. This is how we're gonna get it. Is you have to take off two days here and there. I'm okay with but don't say travel. It makes us look so bad. It is easy of new people. Should shit on us do aaron. Boone doesn't have a ton of responsibility like he really. Doesn't you know he has no say probably in the lineup. He has no say in these option. People down up and all that he's probably minimal to no say as it's been rumored like in game decisions sometimes but what he's here to do is be the face of the yankees to the media and when you were saying that a guy is out because he sore from traveling. You're not doing your job like. That's what pisses me off. We don't have the the yankees manager. Can't say that to the media but aaron judge shore from traveling on airplanes. That didn't change times. That can't happen. Boone's gotta be like. I would fire him from that. Aren't even care about his indians do that. But that i know is his job is to be face of the organization's decisions and you can't tell me to like you said you have to make a better excuse you have to say management will say a word. This wouldn't be story. You say traveling from airplanes. The fuck man. I remember one hockey player like he. He was out for the night because he as pancakes fast hurt his back like bell. That's funny that's hilarious. Don't say it just play taking the night off crazy man. That real quick on this is a random. The pop had that. I meant to bring up with you in recent podcast showers tonight showers right the one i have here one. We have in new york city. You get one speed. It's the it's the flow where it all comes out. But when you're like in your home or a hotel you got the ones that you can turn the nazionale. That right who in the world has use shower mode where it's just the one little this drive. It goes two hundred miles per hour. And it looks like go through your hand like who takes a shower like that it is. How is that notch. That's a very good point. It should not be enough and we're like will hurt you. I could not like sometimes. It's accidentally when i go home. I think like maybe like the thing twist ever or someone of my home is doing that. Which is which is a bigger problem. But i i get flabbergasted. I get taken aback when i see that shower mode and just like what like i couldn't. You couldn't pay me to show like that. It would come out with bruce charter even think like what you can do it that mode. I can clean the shower with that mode. You can use them to scrub washes like that's it but if you're taking a shower with the one i don't even know how to describe it. It's so outrageous. It's like basically go with three. Your hand you gotta you gotta pack it up and go. If someone's listening does that please. i need to know your rationale. Are you know why yes like. Ever fallen down in the shower did that this week. Bro the show was dangerous place in america. Absolute i hit every part of my body on the ground. You're bad feeling too little yaron knee hip shoulder and my face against the side of the show is your little black and blue. Might be this now. My god yeah no other other other now also went outside for five minutes the other day immediately. Got all the allergies at the same time. Like bad outside is bad. I've been inside for two weeks. It's bad or travel it inside on. You've been traveling maurice algae near bad. I'm no pushy. All have allergies. It's literally my choice. okay real quick wearing like i'm moody. Have you guys gotten to stuff yet. You it's wearing it. Looks beautiful dude. Look at this quarter. I mean did i. What was it hold on. I got the collared shirts in in the Once you get those where is baby. Look at this thing. Ooh college imagine this on the golf course. That's what i'm saying. Perfect for golf course. And then you're you're where now the court zip yeah. Great elastic so beyond to shoot yet doesn't get tight but like just enough you feel it. They're light they're nice color. Got three colors. Believe on the website. Subpoena millar dot com slash short porch. Got the whole collection for the yankees. They're tons of stuff. Mlb season it's underway. We got spring. We got some nice weather. You're gonna be on the golf course. You want to represent the yankees short porch. Go get yourself some collared shirts. There's some some nice little polos once it gets like fall. And i think we're getting past the point where you probably know where this core is about side. Maybe you got like another few weeks but what gets a fall. This is a unbelie. I love quarter. And i've been so jealous of foreplay. Like peter millar hookup for as long as they've had it all the stuff is just fire so now finally yankees get involved. Shorts get involved They've got logos from all thirty teams. Although if you listen to podcasts. Houston one team. That's near donkeys. Sierra peter millar all season long into the fall after year-round peter millar short porch incredible of the entire collection at peter millar dot com slash short porch sleek incredible designs. Okay talk about traded to talk with us andy. We talk about him. Next order business. Kyle gosh yoka. It's finally happened. He's the guy i'm ecstatic. I know hit. Listen hand up member. I said garrison it'd be an all star all that i gave up on that ten days ago ever officially. It's just over with him. Higashi yoga is it's just a no-brainer of how good he is right now for this team. Pitching wise like he's turned. He made corey cooper. Looked like a cy. Young core logo kluber the other day. Two her you through very well to him. He did not catch montgomery. the montgomery was fine. Not a bad start from him take. I'll take five innings to run through montgomery every time with this offense the way it should be but it. Gosh okay. there's just such a calm calming presence when he's behind the plate and when he's up at the ba- he's he's up at the plate a good good swings never he's never overmatched. He's always so calm. And i always thought was very interesting. He said he read. Ted williams book about hitting ten times in high school in one year. He read he's like he's like i don't understand why everyone doesn't read this book and you know what i think everyone should have. Everyone should everyone the fucking team. Some time and read a little bit of a heart moved to a ten times a nice school. But if you're gonna hit like him he got into the major leagues you can't you can't get local fault them but i think what would it hurt a fifteen read. It wants like about one. How after every game every law so after tonight you read like a chapter at least fifteen pages after like plane rides. I know sometimes people wanna read on the motion of that maybe an audio book about an audit like to we need everyone needs to be. Hit kawaguchi because this guy at the play. This year has been nothing. Short of his. His runs created pluses. Like plus two. Forty if i if i'm not mistaken and the average number for that is one hundred that means he's double of an elite hitter here so ring though with him. It's like with gary. Were always like we'll we'll take pass balls because he's such a good hitter right now is a unbelievable catcher. Like we have to worry about all and then he's actually a good hitter so whether we don't need anybody else even more impressive modest graphs in his twelve games this year. His batted balls in play which measures basically if. You're getting lucky or unlucky the plate. It's two twenty two so he's actually getting unlucky at the plate and hitting like this so this is real seeing from him his name. I think his name doesn't transfer over like is going to be good. Yeah i think fights said that last year when he was when he was in the playoffs. And he's like. I couldn't believe this guy's a real person like on every isn't selling. He's like on the yankees. This sounds like a random player. That's like we thought it was. He's good catcher but he can't do the house but now i'm good with them. His waited runs created plus plus is to ten so lavish the league average one hundred to ten right now. He's always he's also a full war. Two point seven on the year in just twelve games half the keep lying him. He's catching coal tomorrow. Night in the bronx against the tigers. So that would be that four or five games. He's played or three or four. It'll be three or four. I'm just saying don't soup. The tigers i. I don't know what else yeah tires bad about. wind on the bad thing little. We have ten linked we are. We are eleven fourteen. I thought we were on the way back. I thought we were starting to get it together. They entered today winners. Of what five. Seven or something like that. So yes split on lascaux we tommy at we were like what do you. What do we need from this week. Just four games against the orioles three against the tigers and at the bare minimum. You need i think you need five so that would involve now sweep of of the tigers and then obviously but i love six and seven would be obviously perfect but five is like e. Can't you can't go away from this week and went four games. I think that's that's show embarrassing. So bad one million sweeps yes. So but i do. There are some good things that have happened there. Also some bad picks so we're gonna run to the first good things colleague has just been fantastic. As as we said very excited for him he needs to play. I think at least three of every five games. Starting what do you think. Do you think it's four very three three. I think three's the right now. Gary actually had some good swing state. But they're gary doing. I'm okay with him in like. Yeah i think the reason could amount. It could cause you don't wanna completely exposed to gosh yo you know. He's good at this moment. Easy to bona fide. Starting catcher probably not but like. I mean it wasn't since last year like this isn't just this year like we saw this last year with him. He took he took over as the starting catcher in the playoffs. So who knows found something and you know he. He's got the background coal obviously when him and colorado it's completely different story like kohl's a maniac with higashi behind the plate so and and coober to and that's the next thing we're talking about. Here's corey kluber. Just was excellent the other day. Excellent vintage vintage corey. Kluber six and two thirds one run to walks five strikeouts. Even the velocity which white sox was getting all bent out of shape down the spring training got to ninety three which is the everything was up for him literally. All i knew a clue. This i keep saying this shit but it's like it kluber and tie on and montgomery do that five innings to runs around there. We should whenever you have about six thirds like that was like tim exceeding my expectations plea. I couldn't actually believe they sent him out to the seventh. And i thought they didn't even have any warming up to start the sixth inning and a couple of people got on base. They he got lucky with some hard outs. But but that was a little trick. A little risky to like not going too far but that it was just nice to see that he hasn't room so dude absolutely. And it's very encouraged crazy. One-star can do now. Am i saying he sai- on kluber got no am i saying. He's a bona fide number. Two pitcher absolutely nuts. But that's a step in the right direction because before that and actually less two years. That was his longest start in into year over two years. It was i included six innings. Since i think april early april of twenty nine thousand nine so right but the fact that he's he's able to do that granted it's the orioles. I understand that the can hit a little bit. I've seen it. I've seen the hit a little bit this year. But it's just nice to see. Because i wasn't so that's just a big confidence. Booster for him. he stuff was nasty. The control could be stole a little better. But he's done there and that's a nice step and before that started actually was like i almost not given up on him but like i was very close to and it was like james. Anti is going to figure it out. I don't know about core kluber. Now it's like all right. I've seen a really start from kluber. Where's my town because we haven't gotten it yet. We've got decent starts. We haven't gotten that two third one run five strikeouts start yet so tie on your next. I got like he 'cause he hasn't been terrible. He's had some bad start. But like you give those okay. We could deal with that. But you're right. We need to one like shut up and throw shut everybody down. Yep i'd sneak for confidence. Jamaica hormone another guy who was excellent in his stats. Here tatty no to make a seven innings three hits no rooms shut out yesterday on wednesday. They shut out the orioles seven. Nothing six strikeouts from him. He was fantastic. He was that's too good. Start in over him that he's gone six or mornings so close up to autumn early in the season two. Yeah it was probably misguided. I think tommy real this back in their tommy of all people you know the guy with the guy who just basically cuts people in his brain after one got one. We're way more positive on the show without a more has been a positive show aside nowhere sucking we're finding like ways to be okay again. It's still early. Were to eleven fourteen whenever we were way worse. And you know what. We'll be the little posits nice. Dj hitting the ball again. Dj's look very good lately Gleyber torres as the pretty good lately and had a big hit today. When i didn't think that was coming. And i actually. I breathed downstairs and my buddy was on a conference call. Apparently like someone on the call. Is there a bird in your apartment. Apparently my scream. Sound like a bird. Because i literally. This is right after the rogers news. So i was so depressed and the yankees. Were just about to go down to this pitcher. Who's doing eighty miles an hour destroying lobster of plate. We could the top. We kept swinging at labor connects. I just like let out a bird. South apparently so was funny Our top of our carlos and again big time like judge hurt whatever but his numbers are good. He's back to like two fifty around there. It's our bottom. Where frazier needs a picket. The fuck up Who would still might become. Because he got the homer homer wednesday night along with the hit today. Rob the leap to hits. It's it's still coming for him and it's frustrating as hell to see him at this and people keep saying oh like you. Defense talk minner. But what about like ripping clinton i'm like. Hey man like do you want out there in left field right now because brett gardner is doing nothing. He's in one eighty two. He's decline defensively. He's made he's made a few misplaced. Clint frazier defensively diving. Catch today he made back to back. Boys actually held a should be doubled to a single and the diving cash next play. He's held his defensively. He's been better. Think gardner defensively this year and that. But they're both hitting nothing so you might as well play the guy with potential. That's my that's my thinking trying to get the guy with potential more at bats and get him out of this rather than gardner who's just lost and finished. That's my thinking were those. We're not consider being like yeah. We're all clint guys were like he's at the point like i can admit that clinched clinton klingon aski- on a one thousand percent rather clint just like get through it. People starring two seasons People let just people they do they start to see some slow and once you get a lot of reps and he'll be fine but his at bats were concerning though he was literally sitting on. He's like sitting curve ball and he gets facile on the middle he now. He's started to swing. Actually which is nice to see you do but the just arbonne lab. It's just aaron. Hicks is an automatic out. Isn't it be about one hundred dude. He said he wants thirty nine. He and his at bats We'll get into today's game. Where wade had one of. I think the single worst album major leaguer. Bev hicksville up just topping the ball back to the pitcher. He is so bad. He has no flashes of anything this year. He is a horrific baseball player. And the fact that the that the trade makes me. Because i was ready to have mytalk and just get started starting center fielder reps at this point like i think he had earned a shot to give talk mental week. That's gone now. He's in san francisco. He's gonna be their center fielder. The fact that aaron hicks is just an absolute automatically loser zero at the plate right now and it's not getting any better and the fact that he was sitting three this that god that's over with like he'll never hit three again unless like people literally die on the steam but He is a horrible horrid baseball player to watch. Do anything now makes me sick little. Just watching him. Not even with tj said right when we got and it's like wait hickson battle. Yeah teaser you rub that point so the on the sack flight today where everyone on. The team was like convinced that the left early. Let's perfectly on time. I felt like but hicks. I've seen hicks throw guy often there and it wasn't like cedric moments was running but i mean what was the throat no chance up the line and late and just he's he hasn't had a good throw all year. I felt like that was like one of his main positive attributes. Like in the last few like the four twenty nineteen to was like right arm and he covered on record with the hardest throat. Can you hear me. He's on record for having like the hardest throw like ever a hundred and sixty miles an hour field once. And since tommy john like. That's been nowhere. Aren't you supposed to throw harder after. Tommy john isn't that that that actually helps guys out ten feet up the line and like two seconds late. He had that play. I forgot the game. I wanna say it was two weeks ago. Where back to back then. Kohl's bitching where he misplayed a ball and center. The next play misspell again and like threw the ball in the second one to three hop. Like what are we doing with their next week. Wh why are we forcing our. He's being paid ten million dollars a year. I hate to sound like an old. Like if georgia's around like he actually would have traded hick he was just like okay. It's ten million dollars. A year will pay him to not be mit mingka's statement. Way like say like. Hey you only make opinion tally. I'd rather pay for you to be on another team like just show that east to fucking worried about golf. Aaron hicks said. He thinks he's professional golfer. He's more serious about that. Yeah something we are taken more seriously. This year is our lawns sundays here to help us. You know you love the. I feel like it's as you get older.

Now there's jason dominguez news. Where's my phone. My phone has zoom meeting this afternoon's informed players where they are starting the two thousand and twenty one mlb season. I was told. Jason dominicans will be starting with the hudson. Valley renegades great. That's right by us at hi eggs. Those that's where. I played college baseball that who are school. I mean i mean. I think that's like an hour half from here right now in the right by my school. Literally this team this team with the suck. We'll just go to those games. Wash someplace has to be shocking. That a person that turned eighteen. This year is starting is just skipping lower. That's insane to be honest. We not take now. I forgive me but by the lake shakeup a little bit but are we sure we still have a team tampa. We still have them be okay because i know they deleted they you know they are now or renegades were the raise before importantly the renegades was one of the teams that we picked up de you say low bergen to the major league. You can't tell me. I know you can't. You can't do this. But i would love to see an an alternate reality. Sneak peek of. What would happen if dominguez started in center field right now and just how much better he'd be the. Here's he can be his happy wars. He actually cannot be worse. It's an At least one. Seven but not aaron hicks. That's exciting. What aaron hicks settled. Fuck they said. Oh fuck i'm i going now. What now said rogers get your reading. The roger shit not playing for the packers ice little more baseball and then we could talk about that as we go to the draft. Okay good good update. That's that's fun. I want to know where he's wanting very exciting. Era boot showed a motion this week on monday. Matt harvey was taken into the keys. Which is crazy. That actually happened in the year. Two thousand twenty one and he was dice up matt. Harvey went six innings. One-run five strikeouts and there's a play in the eighth inning. Gio has basit scores frazier dj on his way from second coming into making a four three game to beat out one. Judge ball hit the left. Doesn't go to the wall decides to go to thirty now. He's already in scoring second and they just threw him out. Umpire ruled deejay did not cross home plate in time judge was ruled out. Eating was over. It was still four two instead of four to three with men on second which is what it should have been tying run at the winning run. Go ahead ron. At the plate tiger second judge makes a bonehead play makes the final out of third an unnecessary baseball play Boone came out tried to challenge it a little late. Even though it was even think about the the challenge wouldn't have worked. I believe he deejay did not make it home in time and judge was out. I mean just immediately eighth inning and such crucial play shouldn't even have. What are you saving your challenge for you. Don't use it there. Dang play But the umpire ruled that he was late. Asking for the challenge. Didn't give it to him. Boone went nuts for the first time. And maybe this is because the yankees finally hit their eighty five percent of recode. Vaccinations that they don't have to wear masks anymore. In the dugouts optional. So boone canal. Just scream as loud as he can of people people can hear what he says but he went nuts. Good to see some emotion did lead to two straight wins Obviously nothing today but also on wednesday. More motion from clint frazier. Hits double makes third. The third makes an out at third base on a ground ball that he just was a bad play by bad. And you could see boone staring a gazing at him down down. the dugout was like the first one. I've actually visibly seen him pissed off at a player. A little motion of boone but a major league baseball team have so many base running errors craze and we trade the one guy who to on the basis. I know he was a clear best base runners on the team. Mike talking it's like that's wounded stopped practicing middle schools role. How to do their show battery on the basis. So bad did say man but it was nice to see boone of motion but granted. it was. I mean was warranted on monday near the biggest after the game. We're talking about we talk. Same thing about boone. Making a fool himself with with the travel saying judge. Traveling i mean. He says the umpire bullied him. Like you're the face of this team. It's the only thing you have responsibility to is to say the right things. Median make it sound like the yankees and your semi on pyre bull you after matt harvey held a seem to six innings. One what are you doing dude. You can't give bullied by on pilot. Can't say that or xlii poesies. It was bullied. Someone's like oh. I think he misspoke. I spoke when the medicine. How did you miss. How do you miss speak this. Pretty sure he meant to say that. And it was embarrassed. Fucking boone man. A few more things here. Oh today's game Like i said montgomery was good ruben. A door with another massive hit. This guy doesn't have a ton at hits. He was he's hitting one eighty four in the year but he has four. Go ahead hits now right. Tj is most of them team for its most team is ten. Rbi's is which is tied with judge. Sky starts start team this year and you can bet one seventy two do enough for me. Absolutely aaron hicks. You get some ideas there. But we're gonna door he. He's given this team. Some spark granted eleven fourteen. Not the record you want but there. They had more energy than they did. Twelve games ago for sure. A guy shitless glacier ties the game big labor tied off while dow does in the ninth inning though. Sorry in the tenth inning with a runner starts in the second after chapman with another just unbelievable inning striking out the side. He's at twenty strikeouts. I believe in like eight innings. This year like i've never really even seen stats like that before. It was ridiculous absolutely ever looked by far. He's throwing one hundred and two again. It's a it's a shame or wasting him but always stays by the time to do it too. Yeah the split. I've seen people say otani has the best pitcher in baseball with the splitter his s- players like over twenty this year with eighteen strikeouts or something like that. Something insane. chapman's is just as good. It's absolutely ridiculous but in the top. Ten with the man on second tyler wade in the game because they pitched it judge in the game which i thought was a weird spot. The pinch hit him and he struck out. And then you throw weight in there and now wait is your second baseman. Or did they put him in right field. Some point or i didn't even know where they put them in a second but wait isn't there. He starts the inning with a foul. Another bump thou- then. I think there was a ball mixed in there and then he tried to again fell. It was maybe the most single pathetic at that. I've ever seen for major leaguer. Guy who virtually stood no chance to play against what. Tanner scott tannen. scott like. amy. Tanner scott little mary on a rivera up there this like we give away. Why is taller way. Like i don't even get it. Why is derek dietrich. Yes put somebody out that. At least could give them a chance. We know entire winston. Do what i want to know. What derek dietrich did. Brian cashman did he does. He have his daughter. Could not like i generally need to know what's the reason between not. Have we know what's happening tyler. We can't even get a down like and he's a guy and he can't get anywhere close. He was nowhere close to getting that bumped down. There was no part in then at that whereas hey going to get this. Not he's he's aaron judge where he's never bunted like he punts Why they'll probably put him in there. And the goes defense good especially in extra innings where you need to score that. I have have to wait around can not school dude. He's a donor stand. Why he's stephen. Derek deeter dutch dietrich. It is can't explain it to me. Ben hicks gets out. What did about you know alternate site. I was talking to the ford. I was asking him like how how is he is the guy he's like. The man dude is the man he just like fuck with this personnel shit. Whatever that's insane. He would be such a good him. He would provide a similar like energy that door. Does it even better like such a cool dude. Hopefully maybe they're just waiting for it to come up. Because i think voight today actually took live. He's facing live pitching for the first time. But maybe they're waiting to send them both up so they just come up like with fucking they only wear jerseys just like tank tops. Whatever they're just cut completely this say come in they shove buna locker and now it is time to have at least try it. We're suck anyway. Just do it. And then he kinda has an attitude like fuck you and the yankees need that a little bit i can. I can see him coming up together and just fucking bullying boone. We've had enough of you. Never miss the player more than right now. And then i all my god. We're close close. We might get it for the astro series. Maybe if not it's probably week the series after that. But we're very close loop territory which is exciting. That's good another guys at brin. I believe through yankee stadium today. So they're expecting him in june. I think he's officially available. To come off may thirty first but the bullpens in great britain who is the best pitcher on the team last year. Not named gary cole- that'd be worried about the ball. It's crazy care about britain. Comeback are volkan so good right now. Yeah except we had a strained mytalk me to get more people whatever reason but what. I want the point where the make year and it's kind of one of the final points. I'll make what the yankees are doing to mike. King is literally like inhumane. He's thrown eleven sheridan's. Every time he comes up he throws shut up baseball and then they send it back down when you get back to you all set. It's like you can't be back up pretentious. He threw two innings After herman on wednesday to shut earnings twenty eight pitches he realistically just needed one day off today. Thursday and then he's probably available friday. You don't even veronica's kohl's picci's then saturday. Whatever what he's fully ready to go you two full days. It's not like he threw five one hundred pitches. He threw twenty eight pitches and they sent him back down again to bring peralta. What the fuck are we doing like. We're completely fucking with this. Who was completely figured out his game for the first time in years he looks reliable. And i know you said we don't need you. Know bullpen. not as focused on it. But you know what because i to have a guy. Go to two three innings. We all police a guy like that who was sent down a couple of days ago. Thank god but there's no reason my king s keep getting sat down. There's no reason at all and infuriates me. It just comes to a point. Though where he's he has been dominant and you're just fucking with his head being like do. Why do i keep getting sent back down. When i'm doing the best you can possibly like do. I don't get why they keep doing down there. Someone made a point that he's like the hulk and every time you step down you pissed them off. Morning comes comes to come. He keeps coming back up. He pitches angrier and angrier delays like literally ryan. So if that's the theory okay. But nothing else makes sense. What they're doing the my king and why they waited so long to send down. Nick nelson no sense whatsoever and like okay. Let's say one to pitches on saturday. Three all right well fox coming up on demand. Is wendy a one i keep. When we got one the parole talk one the peralta unbe fucking livable. So that covers. Most most things Oh indoor product the door experiment new york. They're already billingham. he's hitting almost below two hundred this point so so much for steve cohen. Changing the culture and everything around there and lend being savior. He's hitting two hundred. And i think every franken tank. It's about him like he's the worst center alive. He's tweet now like tie kelly. It's coming back and tight. Kelly's like saying maybe i am better than you know but like i don't give a fuck about the mets. I really don't. I know people think we do building onto Safe off the mets. But any it's one of the worst things to give somebody so much money. 'cause you expect immediate immediate success and like fine. Hey he'll be all know that like fans are so crazy we give him. How much did you get three hundred zero yard. Forty one million one more million more than than totti's yes. Three forty one petting you. You need to three hundred right away and never. Yeah but it is funny to see. The mets are a big a franchise. That gets a big player in any sucks. I when i saw mets fans are always like they're the such a good franchise fans just there so respectable loyal. And it's like yeah. You know what they're just like us fucking moody's guys in a month. We boot stanton in a month. Like commodity kinnock pay that much. Hit the fucking ball. I will say you say you shouldn't pay these guys. You know you about garrett cole every single penny like every star issues i think are different pitchers you like you need dominant pitcher in the upper these hitters. And then but also mets fans real quick not to harp on them but them channing yankees suck after they lose to the red sox like. I don't get that when they could you imagine. Could you imagine being at a yankee game plan like let's say phillies and we chant met suck no i literally would just never had. It would never happen word. Yeah like what does that mean. What doesn't compute in my head. It's not even making fun of them. I generally don't understand it. Did the same thing twenty nineteen when they got hot hot in august for like two weeks they beat the nationals on a walk off single or something and the fans are channing. Yankees suck on the way out of the stadium. It's so sad. That's almost like when again too little tiff with chuck. And he's like i've been bald since ab- seven bitches like is that i don't understand that did you win. I don't know you know what though it could've used you to think. Wait all right good for you. Choose like bob world clip. Whatever of a guy. I think during an argument and all of a sudden like one guy goes like suck your dick again. Just one st of two. Sap as like. I'll start your dick right now. What the fuck make sure. Yelling bar sleigh. Like don't know what to do if you're into a fight saved thing is that all right. That's all baseball. So that's not good to to the sears is needed at least three and one would love the sweep. Didn't get close Got the tigers coming up with cole. Pitching which is good. Gosh okay. I will be catching which is good Aaron judge should be in the lineup. He's not when we completely panicked. But yeah things are great eleven. Fourteen could be better. The astros are coming around. I wish they were just playing better because that astro series. Maybe that's what they need though is to play the astros and it gets the blood flow in a little bit or they just get bulldozed. Could you can't have and yeah so it's five thirty seven draft night. We've got the the nfl draft show. I think we're going to release this like right away. So go check out the nfl draft Yeah i think that's how pronouncing it right. Yeah our draft show tonight. Be on all our streams. I'll be on for the packers tickets. Twenty nine but i mean i. I can't believe what's happening was out there. You can pick up tibo. Fuck you quarterback. They said he's going to be like taste them. Hill type Can i can't believe i can't believe it's happened. No hubs eleventh. You get the eleven th pick end. Daniel jones for aaron rodgers completes atmos completes. I'll take any they like. I don't know what they do. I generally don't know what they're trey. Wingo said that last night roger thought he was the niners people forget. Are others the mvp forty eight touchdowns five interceptions but they traded up for quarterback last year. That works where you trade it for quarterback and then the quarterback you have. Who's an mvp triple. Champion gets upset. No way that have elway. He's under control four years away. It's gonna bother him good. I mean true. Like i'm about to go watch draft with jets fans and i love it so much and they're about to get like literally this knight in shining armor to save them giants fans. Are i feel like in a pretty good spot. Aside for quarterback probably you guys are building defense and you got to pick tonight. Judy jetson thing of two picks in the first round and maybe three. I think you know today three. I don't know. But i don't think you're wrong about zach. Listen he's so good. Company is good team any kind of Everyone sucks trae lances dick and he played d two and d two d one. Aa d one. All he played he played white. Well eleven games. He didn't even play well. That's why know like playoffs. He's shock through think he played no not this year last year. Oh yeah no. He hasn't been good. It's crazy wilson. I he makes throw. And he's he's got will aaron rodgers. He made me a lot of money while you all your this year. Yeah maybe feels too much the ends up being good. But i'm just. I'm such an anti justin fields. Guy stinks or else they'd quarterbacks don't have the best track records they do not ask big of that but yeah. I'm in complete sadness. Your the yankees lost laid out with aaron rodgers asking out of green bay. It's i don't know. I do not see how ann rogers starting quarterback next year next season with how this is transpired today. There's just no way. I won't be started was traded to it. I wouldn't crazy. We fucked up. Aaron rodgers unbelievable godforsaken team unbelievable jordan. Love fucking shoot me. Track record says jordan level be like a hall of fame quarterback though because he went from far and then he left on like not. The greatest terms jordan love joy lavas horrific journal. Love is horrific quarterback like he sold the guy. You should be supporting your guy. I want him. I want him. No i literally. Rogers traded should trade jordan love and distract the quarterback. Because your love is the answer to our love. Sucks this sticks. Justin fields go real late. Why did we re aaron jones. If we're gonna do this think gonna waste him paying. Running back always works so bad any draft. Did they drafted. Aj dylan the second round to replace aaron jones and then decide the sign aaron jones and let the number seven football koreans and go to the charges. I hate this front of soap much. No problems so many problems man. People say a front runner really don't understand. It just drives me fucking nuts every year my entire life whether it's how they lose in the playoffs or what they do with fucking the front office there so dupage they fucked us all up all right. No one wants to hear this rent. I'm just gonna keep drinking Yes so tune into the show. And i should be fun and yeah yankees. Not not great should be orioles us report. What stay as monday. Later john sterling. You've been listening to short porch. Byproduct barstool sports realize you thrown in you me his head a blend you you off march Most games and toys disqualified. If your one shot. I guess he'll saw so those doc a different.

Episode 271: One Last Run At Positivity: 2nd Half Preview + Jasson Dominguez Discussion

"Kirk same ohio. Here come later. He is promo nagy win. What's up what's happened to welcome to another edition of the short porch presented by brussels sports. We're in studio. Not she's still. I don't even know. Where but tommy's right here noah sitting over there teacher and the ones and twos second half of the second season. Here we go. Let's go have you gotten over it if you've ever sunday. Yeah i think you have to no no. This is gonna sound like a coach right now. You got what happened is a loss but guess what accounts in the standings as any other loss. One at a time positive tonic. Now we have to focus on one game at a time. Handled the task at hand. The team that we're playing tonight that's all we can shelter food right now. One day out of time. I love the effort. I'm seeing these guys were. We're so close. Control on those were close to turning a corner and swings out there. Yeah we're having some good swings or making some good contact. Maybe i'll be positive. Maybe i will be positive in the second. I don't think you will. I will start off as positive until there's one nothing the quite little gary strikes out fat. Fuck on the starting. I'm starting off positive. Second half all right all right. That's the moment decision. I just made and i might regret it like i said within a half hour on thursday night but for now i will be positive telling me all right sure. I'll try and believe that for split-second here here's what only three out in the loss column of oil loss like the curling case on this team we get into the playoffs. You get into the tournament. Anything can app. What's going on what's happening we should be buyers or sellers buyers sellers. Whatever you're gonna know in intendes like four against eight against boston in the next eleven games i believe is eight and next ten. I think they have a two games. Here's against the phillies. You're going to know your everything you need to know like it will be. There is a real team. Can they win a game against the boston. Red sox or gonna lie down and not come out or anything. I really hope that the yankees either over the next fifteen or so games either go like twelve and three or three and twelfth. We either have to clearly establish the ourselves a seller as buyers or sell the yankees are like eight and seven over the next fifteen and it's still the same thing where some nights they look. Good some nights. They look like just lifeless loser. That's first-half tommy talking if it's just a mix of those things and you really don't know where to go and then you're in a weird in between by the deadline. That's the worst case scenario. So we come out of the gate hot or come out fucking terrible and make a decision from because the schedule is so obviously at eight of ten boston splitting for in the stadium for boston and then three at tampa after that is a very winnable stretch and that involves silly. You're going to know after that topic though that's going to work to be hearing about that. Winnable structure games like if the yankees struggle in this stretch. Notice sell because they'll say like oh we have a. You're not selling we're not selling as much is like find selling. I don't i don't think cashman's going to sell. How is going to be no. I don't think they're defined selling would be offloading chapman britain. And may you try. Get rid of clinton i guess and maybe a full so would be like voight. I think i don voight type situation like a geo. But you're not doing that. Those guys are going to be the wiser. You know those guys staying here but but you're gonna know in that stretch when they finish their game on the twenty ninth against tampa. It's like okay if they're if they're in a situation from from now until them cash is going to be aggressive and then you're looking at three against miami three against baltimore four against seattle three against kansas city. It's like if they're able to have a positive structure then you add and then you had that stretch. It's like okay. They can get right back in the thick of things. But that's neither here there. They have to fucking beat the boston red sox after they have to win three out of four this weekend. That's i'm not even like it's a prediction. It's like if you want to even consider yourself a real fucking team. You gotta just fucking beat. The won't be happy with a split. A split i treat it as as a law series because when you're she had opening line by the way tomorrow night eighty eight. What is base. Keep doing this for the yankees montgomery against era. I was about to say his coal. Pitching's montgomery gonzi rob. I think they're holding coal until saturday. Don't think they've officially announced anything. But i saw Espn have it. But i thought another at all on positive. Tommy but if i was in a bar sportsbook state i'd be looking at that value on the red sox big time i mean that's something but you know you have to win three to four k now. This is one forty last night. It was one eighty so maybe it's dropped since then. Oh yeah no. It opened at one eighty. It's now dropped to one forty. So people are betting boston but the anger is still a favourite. Yeah i mean like. I said three out of four israeli. The so four. You've got to win anymore out of six. You gotta go four and two between the now. Let's go once here once time. Such when you to win baseball series. They have done in the last two weeks. They beat their astros. They took the series and they took the series in seattle. So it's like you're you're at home. It was a good week if you actually look. Don't look like how sunday was lost. Wasn't good week but it's you had the widsom you're at home. you're in the bronx. Do to the red sox what they did to you with their stadium. Basically if you just look at the red sox rotation. I know they've had good years but like iran peres. You've all the and peta be able to beat those guys and they haven't done that like except like chris sale like okay primary. Here's this is john lester visit. These are all very beatles. That's probably what has been the favourite. But or vegas knows that people just going to bet the yankees all time like we could just set the number where everyone people are gonna take but man put up or shut up too big a big stretch coming out of the gate here. We're talking all star weekend real quick before that one talked about our friends at manscaping. Summer is here and it is hot as balls outside no pun. Intended to even talk about here are. Are you ready to unveil your intended. Maybe though i don't know are you ready to unveil your beach thomas. You've been at the beach. Have you got the beach in the shore house.

We're not some odds currently can't lift my arms above my head why i am so somber and up going to the gym no so no. I am so somber and i. I've been back from myrtle beach quite quite a few days. Now you were there for like thirty six hours. Like i quite literally was only tanning for one day but i have a problem where i'm just an idiot so i put the aloe on but then i like there's nothing more fun like peeling or whatever and i just more fun. Now you take. I don't like right now. And i relate to that i like it a lot. It's like it's so uncomfortable. No no no not. No not the painful like winning the dead skin off. I'm not talking about like sauce shit but like it's terrible and i was doing it so badly last night in bed and then more this morning and then nate pointed out to me to just literally like fucking bleeding. What are you doing so i had to go to. Cvs aloe city md. I was gonna say i know. It's fucking bandaged up. Because god terrible. It's quite i haven't shown you the picture. Yep original somber picture. you'll laugh. i won't put this on social media but it was real. I mean i guess the over here. It's like literally as as your hat you. How much can i pay you to tweet myself enough on twitter and all that. I don't need to do that but it was just know that she might call a hat. That was like my skin for the most part. It was really bad. It's not painful. But i just have to physically. I'm almost a patient in a mental hospital. Where like and he. He's that's where. I'm at so that when the dogs they get like the dog. I need a the with my hands or something like that. Some cone hands. Colin hands not good. So i'm dealing with that. When i walk you can probably noticed. Like i can't like fucking mess. Transition back to the yankees. Jason angus called up promoted already. He's at la tampa. He's not moving anywhere. They doing what he was doing. Was wasn't the same facility but now as you playing in games every day you wanna fun debuted. What's today's wednesday. She debuted on tuesday. I think i he was out. He play in the futures game by the way didn't do anything to rocket to third. I was fun. Medina pitched as well dominguez last night and low. Low a tampa rips. Rbi double down the line. People were kind of making fun of it is not to run the bases and he's still ended up at second safely. I think one the guy was really nervous. I think too was like a weird ball down the line if you saw it but like you couldn't tell if it was fair initially and he was out of the box will slow. I'm not don't to mingas is based running in game. One of low weight tampa. What are we doing. I'm sure i'm sure he'll figure out. I'm sure you know on the basis. And if not i'm sure i'll man could do anything. He's also really fast. Which is cool. It is gonna. I wonder. I mean obviously this year. It's not gonna happen but do you think there's any point next year. Where where like. Bring up jason dominguez or do you think it still twenty twenty three. I think it's at minimum twenty twenty three and it could be twenty twenty now but but by twenty takes so long of wadsworth clamoring for him emmy con depends what the situation teams in at that point if we're still somehow rooting nightmare. This time still rooting for aaron hickson. Like twenty twenty three. I mean he's under contract correct. He's still actually. Until i could see there being a time next year in like september call ups wear chance i was gonna say if this and i'm not being trying to be a first-half twenty twenty-five aaron hicks call option. They won't even you for life. My god first half becomes a trend over the next the rest of this year and next year i could see them calling them up late next. But what's why. Russia start his clock. Day would never start saying but then the other side is maybe contender. And he's going to help. Yeah moral the only scenario he'd get called up if they're like there and they just need a little bit of a boost and this is not this year and i don't think it's next year either thinking maybe we're talking twenty twenty three but you're locked you're looking late. Twenty two thousand twenty twenty two twenty three to early. Jason goes into twenty twenty three spring training with a chance fighting for a job. Yeah aaron hicks would have to be paralyzed. It's it's about trees. Into mink progresses. Not mine are not going anywhere. I think it would be stunning. If he somehow moved up. and i think he's gonna chill in tampa the rest of the year. Then you're talking high to start twenty twenty two right after valley and zoom. He ends up. Double then i think in twenty two. That's that's the start next year would be hotwheel hudson valley. That'd be my guess and then you could possibly get a somerset promotion midway through there if he just continues to do this injuries. I probably what they're expecting is that so. Then he'll finish the year in aa in twenty twenty two and i guess at that point. Yeah maybe okay. Maybe yeah he would've start the year and it's not impossible get to three levels next year. No if he's he's built out to be which were definitely over hyping him for and that's our fault but okay so you're looking at late. Twenty twenty three in my mind. But realistically i don't every other person aaron judge and i just i would sportsbook odds one is jason dominquez. Mlb debut what year twenty twenty. Three's gotta be like oh you don't you think five hundred just during twenty twenty three. I don't think that's accurate. I think it's twenty. Twenty four is defending twenty. Twenty four is minus for. Sure definitely minus. Yes he'll be hidden. Jason wingers will be yankee at some point. Twenty twenty three even if it midseason long game all right. Yeah i was. That was that was like a media thing. I feel like i don't know how the the nominations for that go. I feel like they in tampa twenty sixteen and then heating up to actually are kind of progress. Pretty quick glacier was in high in two thousand sixteen made his way the majors in twenty eighteen. That's not correct. All right so maybe twenty. Twenty three basalt. But i think it's probably even money. Twenty twenty three minus money. I think twenty twenty. Three is the most wherever i'm excited to see guy player and see videos of this guy. Follow this guy. Eli fishman every video of this guy and minor league baseball writer. He generally looks like he's twelve years old like i mean a genuine. I have no idea how it actually says if they could college twenty twenty-five what does that make him a freshman. So he's like he's like he's not even so he's his age. That's hilarious big. What if he's like. Lebron like lebrons. Brian windhorst he just follows jason dominguez from genius. Genius genius what is his name again. Eli fishman fish at. This is your plan. You are genius at. She'll get an interview with at ally jay fishman on twitter. Follow every he's doing not just dominguez stuff to he's doing everything. Gains tarpaulins are delayed today. He's he look. He says it's crazy so this game has been delayed. Oh shit starts in fifteen minutes. We're gonna get a dominguez at bat during the log gusts you live will be the one that delivered to us. You might be dangerously close to becoming an termi- notifications on for this guy. Wants to dominguez those anything. Shot at you like fishman okay. Terms of current yankee stuff twenty three homerun derby all-star game just happen otani's the star tat. Underwhelming i think for what you know. Losing the first round of the home run derby he did pitch scores first and he didn't get a hit so yeah underwhelming. I'm i'm bringing back though. Tony candle spotlight. Take that we had when chose to knock to the yankees because he wanted to go to anaheim derby. It's all about eve naomi. oh no. I'm not saying anything about english speaking ability. I'm just saying he can't handle the spotlight. I'm just you know it's all about him on day. Kind of stunk. I debut inky stadium. Pitching get out of the i. I will say it's crazy his ear as almost four. If you take out the yankee starts like two five yeah. I as lost that game free. Maybe now for sure. We lose that game like ten times this year. The yankees in really do a whole lot. Air coal obviously pitch. He was shown their kate and cole was there with amy. A look great. Great family are so unnecessary. You weirdo. people were talking about heavy. Look glasses you'll get a rockstar. We've moved on from abc to the kid and now kids cadence awesome. Fuck you know what else. Chapman didn't pitch. Was there any thought. I thought on the show. One day vaca- guard you think it's weird. That like ever episode hub says beautiful. I haven't talked about his family. Your child robbie did his. Haven't come in this many days. Whatever yeah you haven't talked about. Yeah it's been a while but anyways it was there any thought watching you all star game. It was tough. It was a very boring all star so there was not a lot going. I i wish. I know we all it when it did but i wish until decided home-field can't but it can but there's something about them that night where it's like the best players from the best teams going out there and put it on for their team and their legion a nice relaxing week and now decides to it. Can't you just had an extra missed. Her classic it should. this is something else. But i don't know what else i don't. I don't know it was the best all-star game because right at a meaning every other ulster felt so important. I get listen. I'm with you. But i do see like it. Can't you can't make it decide the like it's supposed to be a nice relaxing. We can these guys. Now it's like anything then what you're asking a guy like the tigers to try as much as got in the yankees. That guy's motivation still. I don't know because it's not like i know. How often was it a drastic difference between the al team team where it's like one team on one hundred four games ninety at or something like that. They're usually relatively close. And you know there's differences between playing in the al and playing in the nfl and maybe if if the team with less wins playing in the tougher league then that team would have on the all star game and offset. I guess it was still a very boring also game but was there any thought in your mind like god come into the thought he was going to put him in the ninth and then just leave him out there dry campaigners i can't i'm sure aaron boone's told like no you can't use it but it but to fuck over the yankees how much. He hates any chapman right. I was cash there. I put chapman in the ninth. And just let them let them. I was so nervous and then he brings in who the fuck the bring in Hendrix so thank god thank god for being there but i really thought john was available. Listen so i certainly didn't need that cold. Pitch obviously judge was clinton the cleanup hitter judge. Cleanup hitter may nice cashing right-field. They were cowards. Pitch to them really didn't look at anything. They hit all game. That was cool. Peter lonzo doesn't care about can alonzo is pro cancer bro. Yeah and he hates children. He told the kids as the field. He tours outfit his acl and then like he was dancing on his dead child years. Really funny tweet. I gotta funded out him. So pete alonso fienberg. We just watched a kid on the field and he's beaten a cancer survivor. And all i can do his bob his head and five. That's at banana slapstick. I'm happy and he did get karma them. He was out celebrating. Homerun derby whenever and i think the barges cloud on them. So i know he's a met. But i do think he's like kind of corny like i think there's something about an option of people were saying this to like feet. It looks like he's kinda hated like no players are out there celebrating with him on. Everybody else left. Pete alonso loan. It's like oh he's an arrogant asshole when he everybody wanted trade to win what a story has a thirty five home run round. I didn't even feel like the crowd is going crazy so usually do all murder. I thought was worse than usual because espn not having the distance graphics. Most maybe ever how do you not like. And how do you not all after ten minutes. See twitter and be like. Oh yeah we better an over under a five nineteen and a half and everyone is chasing and in the stadium. After every night. So the way. I stayed up. I was produced quicker than the live tv. The correct. that's me. I was producing the stream here. So everybody was freaking out about it. Obviously so i needed to find a way to like relay the longest home run because it's like it should be easy. There's stats website. But it should be. Yeah pitcher to ahead. I don't understand what differently. It should be the easiest event in the world to broadcast just to show the home runs and tell us how a giant number its most simple the highest chat and then put the reason. It was a quad box with everywhere. But you couldn't see the fucking alive. Pitching one going. They were pretty much was horrible too. I wrap it fire back or they missed so many pitfalls. I think the problem is that no one obeys the rule. Right you actually. It was bullshit. You obey the rule like not not even for the sake of the homerun derby sanctity but for the people at home. Yeah i i don't know what's going on. They re balls in the air at one time one point they fucked up. Gallo like should've gone an extra pitch. Oh yeah story the empire would like dust and then the ball like wasn't even close to land. It'd be like you could go. I didn't know the umpire was just like a feel think he'd be like this seems close enough to maybe land also. No one listens the upper. Anyway it's like what's the the even obeying the rules this you wanna talk about. The all star game doesn't mean anything there's a million dollars on the land the homerun derby you kind of have to take it serious when it gets. Yeah that's also probably. Why p tried sixty whatever and the winner gets a million accents. But do you have cancers cool stories later. Hit like whatever twenty-five hit twenty four layer bat down and be like this is for you the euro. Now stand up to cancer thing. You can't treat him like he's an invalid like you stay. He was standing ovation. I think he'd be insulted by that he'd be like look. Yeah i had cancer. I beat it on back. Don't treat me like. I'm busy with a million dollars. I don't think he'd say that sick or at least give him the the the the whatever the trophy is bad or entertain your spinach inc into spinner chain or something fucking poor mancini. People are saying man cini but like the cross demands seaney. The correct italian is mentioning. If people celeste name. Whoever they want so. I'm pronouncing it mentioning. But that's not how he got while he should take an italian class. That was glenys point. Also because he alonzo not italian and his last name ends. It doesn't sound like tallying last name though alonso. there i know it's the vowel but it doesn't seem along to. It's not a talented what's his not. What is his nationality Ethnic bagman spanish spanish. Yeah hey their grandfather. Peter conrad alonzo fled his hometown of during the spanish civil war and settled in queens new york. He's not italian. he is a spanish heritage. The more you know. That's it for all star weekend for the most part. I had the future game or him. Mazda worry yankees jersey even though he's like the face of miami dade county Interesting for miami. Yeah that's i forget. Who i think have said that. Deena look really cool. Eight hundred two miles hours but like him the corruption. We're talk second half of the season before that talking about how you're gonna get to the second half of the season it's pick.

I think this is very interesting. Start off and i brought this up to you right before the show started You're unaware brendan brennan. Back from stanford thanking second round pick. He actually in college world series. You're at the game. I'm sure stanford pretty much every game. Now he was on the losing side and of lost the game for them with the wild pitch. But we're gonna forget that but he was also really really good and his miles per hour. Were ticked up. And then he usually ninety two ninety three ninety six out of the bullpen. They're they think he's just a complete pitcher and he really just needs innings and they think that he can get called up this year. That's just impossible. They think this year this happen. I feel like this happened. A couple years lingering okay lingering was Yeah and obviously did he end up coming up. I why do i feel he was like a thing or is this guy is going to be ready. And he need. tommy john. Probably jacob lindgren. That sounds right. Drake or josh. Lingering y do. I think it was a disaster because i knew that. Sounds like the yankees yankees. Let's stop maybe. We don't draft the guys who are just ready for the major leagues okay. lingering was in the second round fifty overall pick twenty fourteen draft on june fourteenth signed for million dollar signing bonus fourteen. Yeah i would guess played five games gulf coast before being promoted to tampa promoted to trenton thunder in august. Okay i was right about tommy john but i don't think he was called up. When did he make his day. There was definitely chatter about. He had called the next season so he was called up heat. I mean that's still very quick traffic and was called up the following may and then he did eventually need. tommy john. I i remember being chatter about someone. I think it was him definitely was but The same stuff is happening right now. Brian hope Twee that becky the already close to majors. According to damon oppenheimer they don't see much more development necessary. It's really just building buildings which is crazy to me and maybe he could be a piece out of the bullpen. Which is sick. got four pitches. He isn't there like gas. He i think he ninety-six is where he's topping out right now. That could always build up. But yeah i just kind of hope. Cash doesn't say this is our acquisition lou draft pick. What are you talking about. We didn't do this. Guideline guy come from. I mean yeah. Because he's also a little history when he was this year i think they had the play texas tech to get to the college world series and he made everyone at stanford where black because he said it was texts. Text funeral they him. I think he shop like six really hundred six degrees. That i also i love that. So he's psychopath he also. I believe were at costco this year. There last year he as a student athlete working at cossack. Gotta make the next year your kitchen important games so yeah. Keep an eye on a brendan beck. That could be interesting. It turns into the rest of the season. So he's talking about the big stretch coming up here their next eleven of thirteen against tampa or boston. Eight of next tenets. boston. We're gonna be up there next week on thursday so if you are in boston there's going to be an event announced So we'll be up there motion even going to be taking his talents away from the midwest and he'll i think he'll make his way up to boston. It'd be nice but l. She my show up boston. This your first trip. What are you most looking for. What's your what's your number one storyline. They're like not going away right now that needs to change in the storyline. Or do you mean where where i mean. They have to say everything. I think one one guy that just absolutely must just flip. The script retort. I was gonna say a hand. I mean you're getting better. Not worry about egypt getting better. We have two thousand nine hundred ninety full second half twenty twenty. Dj in the full second half. That's a game changer. i think is a big one. I think. I mean if china lost at this point but so here's the thing this is immediate storyline. You gotta start using chapman again. You can't just have not like and you gotta use them in big spots to just figure it out man. Hopefully this time off i. I'd say we're sunday better. And you know. Maybe you should've used him but i liked that he was able to be used for like a full like he's impatient a. Longtime here so. He's vicious that seattle game right. The wednesday seattle game would be. We didn't pitch on the houston so he hasn't pitched he's gonna hasn't pitched in eight days when the strobe maybe some time off the clearest head mentally and he just has to be better yeah do you use them right away and a high lever to find is allies going to be. I don't think there's been a boon will probably talk. I chapman has to become usable again. Whether that means that doesn't mean he only has to be a closer in high leverage relations. You have to get him kiss guy. Don't use so chapman in your phantom. you don't hate. I wouldn't hate one of those. Carlos stanton tears like that. He had a little bit earlier in this. He's been relatively quiet recently. So when do they play an l. team and a july. Play miami all right. So tim miami miami. So is he to be outfield. That's what he was talking about earlier. That was his tardy elders body of again. I don't know what he's he's so skinny. Listen he dodged that a line drive that when he was at second base fairly athletic. I haven't heard a lot of eastern carlos. I'm saying so talking go here. Oh wow it's marty so you're gonna make him put headphones on you prick. Boys areas mid western man. Midwife was in alabama southern man. Hello how are we doing. What are you in an uber. Now i'm in my fucking sick minivan alabama. Take rica mosh. Rico's one yankee fan recall off. Yeah we're going on a go on the fucking coaches boat right now. You have better quality right now coverage than you do in your own. Apartment is the clearest. You've ever looked clear that in person. I know it makes going to coaches boat. Yeah we're going to coach on a lake. He wants to select for some shit coats. The alabama notes from buffalo walmart is on. We should update. We should do standings me. Oh yeah. tj has standings updates from our picks for the dinner. Apparently we got. I don't even know what they are. So start the season. We picked a bunch of random yankee stats. We'll have the most hits. Most this basically very wrong. Yeah martine questions and then the type. It's just who's worked questions. Three points for the person closest two points for second. I point one point for the loser of the three of us has to buy group. How long do we have you for. Good okay well. I mean we we were in the second half the show anyway. So let's go by category. Maybe yeah i have all of written down and then what it's at now. One of the. I will say so behind your guys back. I put my own predictions for all of these the episode. So i i got the worst choice for all of them. But i am right on one already like it's decided okay. So these predictions were made on march twenty fourth. The first question was most hits by someone. Not named dj. Lemay you thing we lost. Maybe not hubs. That'll probably still actually probably won. Hub said luke boy for communist labor mardi had gio. I had aaron hicks. Aaron judge leads the team right now. Eighty eight so but yeah but none of u pick their judge no but all we have to establish not the question. Yes it is now. Question is who has the most hits yet but we have to go through our picks more you soon. We'll have a point system of who's closer to so. Did you establish a point system. There will only only one of these are even decided yet. We're gonna have an updated points. How can there be a point status how it is. It's who's closest yes. So now out of out of out of her shell avoiding labor. We see us the most out of those three and we'll get to in one points. The boys probably last dead is. He hasn't been either sheller glades. Probably your show. Lemay judge or shallow stanton torres sanchez. Okay so marty. We'll get three points. I get to hubs gets a big on. All i went through to rate what she was. Nothing on it okay. The next question was total. I'll stay are you now. Keeping these point systems. I'll do it later. I'll figure out all right. I'm gonna do. I'm gonna give us all big secondhand more. Aaron hicks your super day. I'm knocking include you in these points. You because you're not in the running for buying dinner but he's yeah he's gonna is. We said that most gets three points. I get to hubs gets one for tended though i know chain. We get the season's not over we're just alike out points yell of where we're at. It's crazy teachers. Just aaron judge. I've thought he had zero point down right next total injury list since after opening day. Oh god upset. Nineteen tommy had twenty three mardi twenty two. i said eighteen. there's been ten so far. Okay okay so that one is tough to give points understand if we nine. I'll be really bad obtain. I honestly thought the number. We've been higher than ten but it's good in one thousand nine hundred health healthy people shirts. I have sources kluber schmidt low iza and do hara frazier britain king a day severino hicks because it was only wants to start the season to be hurt. You said stanton so who who at least they're least most me too big three and then i had straight so i'll count. Yeah okay number of kluber plus tie on starts house at thirty four. Tommy had forty five x marty. Had forty said forty one. It's twenty seven so celebrating. That i'm i'm happy about that but like i feel that that's very up-for-grabs hoover's not coming back it's basically how many starts is jay make you could have another ten to twelve. Your seven hundred uber might come back for. What's the second close to forty forty two to do the points but james was the first one we definitely could have been. Yeah okay what's next on garrett cole. Strikeout al-mahgub hubs to eighty two tommy to eighty five mardi three thirty three. I ninety nine. He's at one forty seven. I feel great. They're i feel so he three. He's tough he wreck. Anybody says from the astros series but before that couldn't really strict points by the way. Loosening the feeling okay random bags. What else personally. Team in home runs upset stanton. Tommy had judged mardi had void. I said gary judge is the leading sends in this in there. Yeah i mean that's not over. No that's far from over twenty one. Yeah okay most wins by somebody not named garrett cole ups had montgomery tommy had tyron mardi had kluber at her mind. That's is agha's leader. That is a disaster of picking by us. Now who's winning between us may probably you That me or out of this time even have more than long. I think it's cold is then. Chapman is the top three right now. Montgomery three wins. Montgomery is three then. I might be james. Your jail is four kluber also has four. How's possible gumri thursday night. We gotta pick this up. How come on next is total. Brett gardner starts. When i got this. Is the one probably going to win. He's like one hundred. Hubs us forty eight tommy at seventy that marty had fifty six s. What sierra forty-seven he's at sixty right now so if he starts four more games. Tommy clinches already beaten sixty feet if he starts four more games right there is. Why is why we suck. Why we're steph. Oh yeah that's a key indicator while the yeah yeah. I'm happy with our pick. Still clint come on gary sanchez. House runs plus pass ball. All know hubs had forty two. Tommy at forty three marty had thirty five. I said fifty. He's at nineteen fifteen home runs for past. He's a good catcher this year. Damn it this is the one that's decided already number of all stars. Twenty twenty one hub said six. Tommy said five mardi said four. I said three. Mardi mardi wins. Mardi got three. let's go. There's three score that point there. I get to damage that multi hit games for dj lemay. He'll know sneaky hat kind of lot upset. Fifty three tommy said fifty one mardi said sixty five sixty five. I said sixty. He's at twenty six. I'm pretty good about. It's pretty high between me. Sixty is pretty high on every gabe three hundred thirty. And you really kind bush garrett cole the league's thirty right now so you said thirty strikeouts. The cracking down on spy spider. Jason dingus home runs in the minors. This is tough one specifically per baseball reference. So we've got zero zero. You literally just play the first semester. That's per everything. I think the conversation. That's what about gulf coast league wants and we saw that one account bullet saying no is the first show last night right. yeah hub. Seventeen tommy said eight. Marta twelve seventeen. What are the secondhand. Fuck even get hot. Total player and coach ejections. Hub said seven. Tommy said twelve mardi said eight there at six. So far i said how many seven i feel kinda. I'll be mere really cobb second-half don't freak out and that's players plus coaches so like the mentos a thing and that was killer for that. This is september twenty second attendance versus texas rangers. How upset happen yet. Notes september now upset. Thirty thousand. Automa- said twenty six seven fifty. Two mardi said twenty seven. Great about my number the season high. Thus far is forty two seven fourteen. No we could. That's texas rangers alphabet and september. Yes i'm pretty sure. That's like a like a thursday wednesday night tweet. People go game by thousands of all he turns off. You still there okay. Trevor bauer yara. Oh boy. I don't know how this what might be decided. Actually we all should get three points for this. Because i'm no. I get three points for this. One actually could be final. Yeah final year ever said three nine eight tabby said three six marney said four five. He's at two point five nine at you know what baseball banned him forever. Never let him throw in pitch ever. Four five yeah. He was creeping up there and then the tiebreaker regular season wins. Don't even tommy had ninety seven seven mardi at ninety nine mardi middle themself. I remember the last the worst there all right so all right. So what does that put us. Forty six this a balance. No no no. We're not hitting the winds. I'm saying like winning. Putting up i stopped. Think actually pretty. Where has loser. But i have three points and i have to and helps us one. Dammit dammit oh marty before you have done on so you were at the college world series you watch stanford play. Remember a guy named brandon beck from stafford a pitcher. The yankees took him the second round. He's the guy who threw the wild pitch where van de one that crazy book. I was there but he's actually good. There's just a bad moment that we don't forget about but there's a reports that he might join the yankees this year. What they said he's ready to go to build his innings up like they think his stuff is mlb ready. That's the stupidest thing that's how fucked. We are pitching. We think that's that's cashman's gonna tell everyone we don't need make a tray. We got brand back and seventy s coming back so about fucking what about the mex- can get in laura kumar yes knots and and the angels drafted twenty pitcher listen. They're going to find a good pitcher out of there. I honestly i love that strategy. It's only thing right now only need that. There has to be at least one. Good one out of one hundred percent okay and we were just about to do the second free so we're looking at. Glaciers are playing baseball game. that's ideal chapman's. Remember pitch so those are two storylines. Do you have anything that really needs. Needs to happen for this to have any sort of choice. The last game relieved to me up fucked me up watching that. Also like ma'am sweeping the astros. And you know i was. I was about to come on and say like after that series. Like when judge and Sanchez were doing the cover up shit like i want. I want people to hate us again. I want the us to be doing that shit and it was like. Oh wow like we're kinda getting a little swagger back people are laughing and then that last game spoken put us back five more games. Aaron judge posted an instagram like series. Recap video after that game. I was like great series. Guys we did onto the won the series way. Go tommy tommy on after that. Because everyone's like why are you drinking out mardi. We still won the series. Are you fucking kidding me. Will martin mardi you. Miss decided to become positive for the second half. I will be positive vibes. only. I think we're turning a corner. Another bet how long time he said on thursday he's going to ground out to third role second half about to turn a corner. We got a lot of talent we just got. We just gotta start playing better baseball. Start making some. I can't do the aaron boone spiel again. I'm maritime only here that once only positive right now played only have place reset my brain. I'm going into the second half with childlike optimism. And of course obviously will. This was out like tonight where the only game and we have to fucking suffer through the red zone thursday. But yeah what we're just we're gonna put this out probably like right away. Okay then i liked what you said there then But yeah oh by the way the keys. Did you see what they opened. That thursday night minus one eighty eight vegas. People is probably still. There'll be suffering. It's already been better than the minus one forty cannon take. That's why they beat the yet. We literally had not defeated the red sox minus on montgomery get the fuck out of here. But i'll still have here. You had sex with a really tall girl who bring that on every on sitcoms. Do you know what. I don't like that situation. I think we do jersey shore house all of a sudden zone. The act somehow. It's like i'm fine with like big ed's like lost his life fuck and face plant along the speed on the beach completely. Sobel the tiptoe away. I've never seen so simple like that. He was dead sober to wasn't like he was drinking or anything like that. Just funny glenties. Terrible spider overall me. We'll need that stuff coming. I mean come on. We gotta have a little bit us enough. Content will come out of that house without without what happens at three. Am tommy's rattled city right now any whatever it out there already like i said i don't i mean we'll tell me what i do wrong. Why am i. I have no idea why your own dave sorts of things with you on the day. I plead my life back in my head is like what could i have done wrong in this past week and it was just that thankfully Another bring it up. I don't wanna bring up more. I did how was. How was the table. Was he ripping on people's dana. Really just gotta brunt jot the brunt of the dave was ready to terrip on marty where he was like. There's no way martin. He's at a wedding. I've caught this guy so many lies. We re reminisce conical herb And he was. I knew picture of of any ripped out his phone like watching. It's like the art. And the artist. Watching dave type out these tweets that you know we're just gonna visceral people and then like seeing him on twitter. It's really beautiful. Thing what. I was in the air going through security. My phone down by phone is for dave more. I'm like seventy attention the wedding. What what am i when he wanted to know how what he wants. Something you never you. Don't give a shit. I saw a tweet something. Like oh god. I'm going to get him this picture. Now i said i was expecting i. If you weren't really at a wedding. I was waiting to see quick. Sneak away from his table. Photoshop without a laptop to edit something. I wasn't that well. I don't know if i'd be able to come back for your office. Oh my god. You're the dana. Today on the rundown. Oh my god day. Portnoy show to dana. Dana is defeated human. Being on the run down my god but another life thing that you see my elevator dilemma. My building is just shutting. Down my elevate you have seen spiders email about like. I wrote it with the he read it on the app today. That is an all time. Water strobe so it's a great it's a great email basically. My building has like thirty. Well it's a few buildings within one but my building within the building is thirty floors ish to elevators. They already are sometimes slow. And you gotta wait and we had an email yesterday a casual email. Okay doing some elevator renovations. One of them will be shut down for twenty three weeks and then the other one will be shut down for twenty three weeks. That's a full fucking year of only having one operating elevator. That's that the lines are going to be through the roof out the door. Well we send him out. We were like this better be made up for real publicly trash blank blank company at every single opportunity that's like full guns blaze vulgar avai respond and are like and dave quote. Tweeted my tweet. Kfc did replied to spider like it's out there. They make big know what. Let's just shut these kids up. Give them free rent for a year. I'll fucking. I'll become a propaganda machine for this company so fast. You have no idea. Ask you this kim jong hoon in north korea. I'll be like yeah. This is the best company. This is a complex in the world. I rent for the year. Would you walk up and down but usually it's like fifteen flights right. Yeah i've probably would. You would walk down every time for fifteen free. I mean we're talking bringing to walk up fifteen what the deal is proper cans or signing any guests parents. Come they gotta walk and i'll do it if it's only me fifteen. Flights is a lot for a lot of walking. I know the people on twitter like ever heard of stairs broke. Thirty fucking floors. Do you knock. It's fifteen but thirty but there's some people twenty five people on the twenty just only your apartment again as it hasn't been it starts The one thousand nine hundred. I i did say that one guy who said who brought up that second elevator. That's waiting to get renovations it's to it's already needs to wait. That's the other thing is not to drink something. They're not old crooked elevators. They're pretty modern slightly nicer. Like we're shutting things down for year to like a fucking mirror in the one hundred percent chance at a working one breaks down at some point. You the admins actually was one hundred percent chance happens typo somebody replies to me. It was like what if they meant two to three. But now because it's been it's been twenty four hours. They would have corrected that by now and people are like no that sounds about right now. What about that one. I built a skyscraper in two months. Apparently you think we're the one guy who said Gets the second floor and then take the elevator from there and beat everyone. Yeah that's not a bad idea. But i'm here at such dirty looks when you walk in. You cut the line between ge get the dirtiest looks of all time. That's tough. I say like like more like a rat. We're at common ground or just whip out like we order this line in terms of like twitter followers instagram followers. I actually worked for barcelona line. You get dirty. Looks certainly looks like i actually worked for barstool sports. I got to go to the front. Imagine the biggest. Dickel my god what you should. There's a company now where you can buy fast passes for like bar and club lines. Y- yeah it's based on that but now you can do it at college. Bars hung the people that invented it. Were here the other day. They're talking about it on the ac. I dunno actually your michigan. Yeah so you should just devise that but for a apartment building elevators and sell yourself the only fast pass right or salvin. Rory just have to working elevators dot to now we were saying there is a chance that it did a free rent this backfires when we get like victim victims like we won't take your thrusts because the other spider conspire on email together with senior year of college. Writing for sitcoms are spring semester and the whole thing. Was you pick a show when you write a fake scene for the show every week. Like your own up seeing. I did curbs. Don't i think i'd always sunny and there was this girl. Lesley ann fucking bitch was writing out with chose modern family and she was taking real scenes from the show she was just copy and pasting actual dialogue from the show and passing them off as her own. Everyone in the class was like. Oh my god this is so funny like this is the best and i. I was fuming. i'm looking. I'm not a rat in terms like someone cheating on a math test. I don't care but we're cheating something creative like that. When we're all busting our ask for these other scenes. I wanted her dead. So i sit like one time. Nobody picked up on this. But like you would give feedback. After the scene was ready to give feedback to her. I was like was like that was really funny. Like i love. I love that use an actual scene from the show that was great and nobody picks up on it at all. So we're like all right. We gotta go. We gotta go around to so spider we craft this email were again. We did the where we play dumb. Or like i noticed leslie. Ann is using actual scenes from the show. We're supposed to be doing like we were under the impression we're supposed to be making our own like we notice leslie hands just using from the show. Is that fine. And she responded. Got more mad at us. She was like what a stupid fucking question. of course. you're not supposed to be doing that like i think. This should have been brought to my attention sooner. We got more trouble in fucking the plagiarize agree. I love that never would never went hot. Sean like send an email from like say that was easy now is insane what he wanted like spider to write a professor note saying that loud failings because of work or something in per trip on twitter dot never.

We're live on the air from the A._T.. And T. Studios in Los Angeles California. I'm your humble host callers eight four four two zero four rich number to dial my buddies Chris Brockman. Mike del Tufo cross the other guys Abbey you Chris. I know that <hes> Yours Lot dan on on twitter as as I am certainly in preparation for this show <hes> why why is the name Muller trending. Can you check on that for me. There's about yeah there's a it's the fifteenth anniversary of Bill Miller's walk off home run against Mariano Rivera. Is that what it is in the in the faint varitek Kirov game. Is that one. That's so it's it's it's Miller. Is that why that's a whole lot of saying. It's the Miller report about controversy with that game from fifteen years ago I mean every single United States east end is about this hearing going right now but we are here to provide programming over the counter programming for you here. I'M GONNA stick to the four corners of the rich Eisen show. That's what I'm GONNA stick to the next three three hours. GonNa stick to the four corners best. I can so training camps open it up. We've got Matt Nagy joining us. We had Sean Payton yesterday tomorrow. Show we've got Bruce Arians getting set to open training training camp for the Tampa Bay buccaneers. He's back. He's been retired twice once by himself another time by the steelers so we'll talk to him about it being back in training camp as a retired coach for the second time that's tomorrow Matt Nagy. He will be joining us here shortly on the show bears the hugely <hes> hugely successful season in his first year as head coach last year and now here he comes with so many expectations now <hes> for year two and can't wait to chat with him. He's going to be joining his first up on our program and then a man who <hes> who does not tread lightly when he when he has footsteps they're heard Derwin James will be here of never met this young man. He had an all pro rookie season on on the back end of the chargers defense one of the best in the business already he will be walking into our studio and our number three and chargers training camp of everybody. Reporting seems like Melvin Gordon is not question his who is not <hes> Yongin Gakugei not reporting in Jacksonville for their training camp today <hes> he was according to my colleague. Tom Pella Sarah the N._F._l.. Network offered nineteen million dollars <hes> per year to try Brian. Get this young man still planned his rookie contract into camp. He said No. That's the fourth best in the N._F._l.. Our Buddy Jo banner who I follow on twitter you met a great appearance on our show former eagles and and browns executive said <hes> he should he should be insulted by that money in terms of in terms of people seeking honey however in terms of people seeking money from the Jacksonville Jaguars and whether they arrived from training Tampon time today Jalen Ramsey making about three point eight little bit something south of four million a year which is not market value for somebody of his stature but he's still on his rookie contract. He showed up for work today and I have done this job in the N._F._l.. Network Sixteen plus years is my seventeenth season. I've seen many people arriving via helicopter right Reggie. Wayne would always arrive in a unique manner training Camp Antonio Brown two boys that Batman Mobile one time well somebody arrived in a brinks truck today with the words feel the boost blazoned on that and the driver Verve said truck came out with a megaphone and announce the arrival of Jalen Ramsey who opened the back doors of the brinks truck with seeming bags of money in the back and he took his training camp bags out and walked into work today fresh out of a brinks truck and I say the Jalen Ramsey well played Sir that is that's your that your new clubhouse leader is pretty good making his point that he wants his money making his point that you better bring your own brinks truck con family now I I have only seen video of the truck parked and the gentleman driving the truck coming out and giving some sort of preamble with a megaphone megaphone of bulletproof in full uniform amazing <hes> and here he comes out makes the announcement now did tell me please tell me the truck backed up into position that they backed up the brinks truck please. Somebody tell told me that happened. I would imagine so. There's no video of it. However oh my Gosh I love it th- really funny because that would be the image of what the Jaguars are going to have to do to keep Jalen Ramsey at some point which is back up the brinks truck now? I asked this question as I always ask questions involving shows displays one can say stunts like this one when they <music> are involving a team run by. Let's say what's the word from an older generation run by team individual. It's just say hey it's here's the word hardest. Let's just go ahead and use the word artist. Whose job was it to say? Hey <hes> Tom you got ta. Let me just <hes> <hes> I got a video to hear you play. You play that guy. Hey Mr Coughlan sir just Jalen here. Oh Yeah I just he's here. Oh Yeah I just gotTA show. You may be here. Well I mean he's he wants more money but yeah I just gotTa show you how he arrived. Can you just fire up your twitter page real quick nick the what page now. It's that thing like social media. It's all the players are on it. Get off mine on and see somebody had to explain to him. Jaylen showed up in a brinks truck and showed it to him by the way Tom Coughlin. It should be noted sweetheart of a man hard exterior. The interior is is as sweetheart as they can get. He likes things a certain way he does now. Do you think he asked if the brinks truck was five minutes early Rally Dot oh man the N._f._l.. Baby all eyes on if Ezekiel Ezekiel Elliott's GONNA show up or not two years left on that deal Melvin Gordon not expected to show up today. I don't understand what he thinks. The end game is going to be there. I it's going to be more Zeros. I think so but I don't think it's I don't know if this is the play charger strike me as the type of team that and and have a history of signing players late and you know not showing up doesn't doesn't Work Memory Antonio Gates tried that up to the point where they they didn't he was not able to be active for the first regular season game he was showed up for remember one Joseph both I mean Melvin Gordon Z special player and he makes the chargers more special and he has given his body last year he was put on the field with a knee injury against a cardinals team he had no business being on the field against and he got even more hurt. I like Austin cler. I loved that Kid Jackson from northwestern and may went four no last year down the stretch Philip rivers is terrific and he can cover up whatever mistakes aches might be made or whatever inefficiencies might be had in an offense better than most he can do. That Gordon makes this team better. He makes them more special. He has the ability to have a major up side and a huge ceiling but I don't know if the chargers are going to give him what he wants while he's not there and I don't know how the the answer to. This question is teammate. Darren James is going to be here. I mean I mean I'll tell you. I'm just going to ask him about this. Mean I mean what's he gonNA say. He's a rookie going into year two but chargers I think are going to play hardball with this young man so you got training by away. <hes> Jason starts on the show as well our number two longtime colleague of mine from E._S._p._N.. He is now a baseball hall of Famer. <hes> he was put in <hes> in the writers wing the J G Taylor spink award the National Hall of Fame So National Baseball Hall of fame. He's less talk about with him. Obviously from the weekend he's affiliate guy so watching holiday go in with his widow being the one to give the speech. I'm sure it was his moving for him as anybody else and he could tell some great stories I know baseball for a lot of you folks out there. If your team's not involved you're not locked in. I understand and that last night in Yankees and twins played a regular season baseball game that was as exciting and dynamic as I've seen it was wild pitchers couldn't get an out the Yankees had to relievers the Yankees brought onto relievers. They're closer or all this chapman an atom auto veto in the ninth and tenth innings. Both of them walked the bases loaded outed after the twins relievers gave up two runs in the ninth and two runs in the tenth. That's just your relievers and then the final reliever of the Game Chad Green gave up a screamer of a bases loaded line drive into the gap that Aaron Hicks made one of the most exhilarating exciting game saving catches Jack Curry who is on M._S._G.. Network and that's how I watch the game on pardon me on yes network cheese make that mistake Yankees once upon a time. We're on M._S._G.. US on the network afterwards said that if that was in a playoff game they be talking about Hicks Grab Fifty Years From now just incredible athletic play. That's unbelievable where the Yankees <hes> were down eight to nine five came back took the lead ten nine Zach Britton who you know I like to refer to as the Manchurian reliever coming from Baltimore from Ms Fifty fifty save season in the Yankees. He just can't get anybody out with regularity he gave up a two run shot to Miguel Zeno that still going second home run of the night Robinson had three Miguel Zeno had to our Buddy Gus Ramsey wanted it to go an extra innings to see if Sano could match no with three homerun nights and snow did have a shot but that was the only out of you know could get essentially to start the inning I it was a wild game. De Gregori Gory said five hits seven runs batted in is a shortstop. The twins are not the twins team. The Yankees are used to just shoving right out of the playoffs. This is also maybe another reason why everyone's talking about it today. Five hours plus is a it's a playoff preview so many people are saying sign me up for seven games of that and the American League Championship series of something like that should happen. Baseball is a lot of baseball but that would be if that was a playoff baseball game but we saw there. Let's timer troupe. That was an amazing game last night and Mike frigging trout. That is his middle name right. I think I think let me check real quick hit a home run in dodgers too. I'm Los Angelino now sixteen years so I'm not not going to profess to to say <hes> you know that I've seen it all. I've never seen a ball hit this foreign dodger stadium. I think it left the facility if it did it definitely reached the second deck and I've never seen a ball reached a second deck in left field dodger stadium it left the yard and Mike Trout not only Jack that one out but he threw Max Muncie out at home on a an absolute dark line drive from Centerfield last night so he's Egypt showed off his all around game again for the angels who did beat the dodgers last night and the angels are five out in the wild card man. Oh Man I am telling you folks coast to coast and as all all fans who listened to the rich Eisen show every day on 'em eight thirty angels radio. I hope the angels make the playoffs just so you could see this guy in in playoff action based on needs it. What we see every what we see every day here in southern California this guy is the best and he is now second on the all time angels home run list but that home run Mike Trout Pass Garret Anderson? He's now got a two hundred seventy three. I'll do the math for you. He is twenty six home. You'd think he's got twenty. Six more home runs left in the season. It's possible ooh that was his lot. That was his thirty third of the seas. That's almost sixty homers sixty homer season which is entirely. Only possible it's it's not impossible. It would be a lot he'd have to put the pedal the metal he would pass Tim Salmon for most in Angels History Emmett he could be the he could be. At this ripe young age the most prolific home home run hitter in the history of this franchise twenty sevens correct will be twenty eight and a couple of weeks. I would have to be even at twenty eight. I would imagine that would have to be the youngest recordholder for a team at age twenty eight for a team. That's been around as long as any team like the angels have been around obviously when the angels started somebody was a just hitting the first home run in history franchisers all-time leader but eight four four two four rich number dial our poll questions good one so is a question. I want to ask everybody by the end of this hour. <hes> I think a lot of phone line OPPORTU Bill Belichick has commented on the N._F._l.. One hundred all time team show that we announced yesterday yesterday <hes> that was a neat moment in on the press conference today in New England.

Let's go with that first one. You have right there on your list there Chris Broader N._F._l.. On Yes sir which hype the team will go further this N._F._l.. Season which hyped team will go further than season browns bears jets ravens. The Ravens are hype team your hype. 'em Up you think. They're the favorite in the A._F._C. North. We won the division last this year not the betting favourite. How about that okay? We'll stick with that for the moment I know I know how I know how you <hes> we we may have to workshop that one a little bit I won't both yet by we'll hit that and I I know I know how are our next guest would would answer that question because it was an amazing first year on the job <hes> for Matt Nagy the first bears N._F._C. North Championship and playoff appearance in two thousand and ten and winning the coach of the Year award which you get bestowed on you and you're the first rookie and only other rookie bears head coach to win ten more games with George Halas being the other in nineteen twenty s Matt Nagy. How are you coach good rich how you doing? I'm doing fine on your your your team's being very high coach. I don't know why we haven't done anything well. You won the division last year and you you look terrific and doing it and many people thought that you had that playoff game you know all lined up for yourself. You know so yeah absolutely no it was a it was a good year for us. We created a culture that you know the guys love coming to work and we had a lot of fun but then we ended with that that talk loss at home to and <hes> you know we're we use that in the off season to remind us of where we were but we're we're it's good to put that behind us now and get rolling here with the rookies being here last couple of days and then the vets coming tomorrow. We're we're really excited and so what <hes> what I asked this question of Sean Payton <hes> yesterday I'll ask it of you. What is the plan? What do you get out of training camp? What when you go insane when we break camp I want x to happen? What do you got for fun so last year I was <hes> you know really learn who each other was how we do what we do? Offensively defensively all that was kind of new building that culture and and trying to become calloused as well we wanted to we had some Nice live periods <hes> in training camp where we kind of control everything thing and I think that's where we're at this year as well. Now I know <hes> I know all these players inside Al Mind you guys are known pretty well and at least the you know the top the first <hes> first group second group guys that we have. I know what they're hop ones. Are I no <hes>. When did he push when they don't push when we need to pull back and they don't mind as well and so the second year starting up for us <hes> you know some changes to camp schedules that we've done in the last year and just to help us out and but the best part what about training camp is you can put the pads on you can go <hes> you know as much as you want live? <hes> and it's all controlled so I think that's the beauty of it you condition your guys through plays through practice. Get a test to where they're acid so that you're ready to rock and roll on we always talk about improving your one a year two and your two two year three et Cetera et Cetera what its year to three in terms of reality for your quarterback but it's from year one year two with you and your quarterback. What are your expectations for Mitch Trubisky and twenty nineteen so we're kind of talking about it as a team right now you know steady incremental <hes> improvement and for him that's a day to day thing and he's done a phenomenal job in this offseason at being able to recognize some things that he said on the defensive side last year he saw he could see the defenses <hes> and trying to place it into how we we call our offensive plays and where to go to football but it doesn't it just doesn't happen overnight and so so now he's got this four library of plays that we both know me as a play caller of the plays he likes him as a as a player the plays that that he likes we fit it together and now we put it against the defense and so the defense is that he's seen not as what he's about? Not Seeing training camp appreciation hopefully the game will slow down for them and that that will increase his you know his anticipation with rose where he's going with the ball and I can already tell these last couple of days and rookie camp just his rhythm and how call me is in the pocket. It's cool to see well. What about the idea of taking off? I mean how many times we see quarterbacks get hurt on that front the names Garoppolo and went sleep to mind. What what do you tell him about that so we dealt a little bit with that? In Kansas City with Alex and Alex was a sneaky good runner and so we never WanNa take that away from him because I've I've talked to a lot of defensive coaches in the week that you know they're scared to death of that that element of the legs of being able to get a first down on third down <hes> that can just break in and keep deeper drive going and so but we we gotta be smart with it and he's done a pretty good job with that. He knows how to slide not every quarterback news out his life. Mitch does <hes> and and I think the biggest thing would mitch is. He's a tough kid so he's not afraid to take thank you hit but you gotta be smart and you gotta get down. He's too important to us and we lost him last year <hes> after hitting in the vikings game for a couple of weeks and so hopefully he learned from that we learned from that don't put them in all the situations fares head coach Matt Nagy joining us before Veterans Report on Friday for bears training camp <hes> walk me through the running back situation here. David Montgomery has been added <hes> in the third round out of Oklahoma state man. was He productive there. Mike Davis now from the Seattle Seattle. I guess triple headed monster that they had to recall Cohen. We know what he can do. How is this all going to be divvied up based on your your idea yeah? We're fired up about <hes>. You know where we're at right now with the running back room. You know you said it I with David Montgomery Marie <hes> it was hard to put the tape down him watching him and all his plays in his career. <hes> at Iowa state how how hard the kid runs I mean he he's starving right now to put these pads on. He's been asking and keeps bothering me about coach one. Can we put these pads on. He wants to get out there and just and hit people and <hes> he's done a great job in the past game so far in not as and then what a super kid just all he cares about his football and he just wants to help us win and Mike Davis <hes> coming over from Seattle was a great free free agent acquisition for us with somebody that picked up our offense already. He knows it inside out <hes> can do multiple things both in the running past game and another great teammate and then obviously to recount <hes>. WHO's there as well so you know? He's a guy that can just he. He makes you a better a better football coach. He makes me a better football coach and what you can do with them so to be able to use I mean don't be times where all three of them on on the field at the same time and we can do some some fun things with it and and I I just I really love with where we're at right now but who's got the Belco you know when it's twenty degrees out what do you what do you do there yeah well. We'll find out. We'll find out. <hes> you know we got another guy to <hes>. I think you know we picked up and he's about six foot three two two hundred thirty pounds and he's not scared to run the ball and then it'll either got got him from New England so Cordeiro a pretty good ball carrier to so we'll we'll do some different things and and have some fun back there for that bill cow so Bella checks not the only guy that uses him like that. This is what you're saying. NO WE'RE GONNA. We're GONNA have fun with him. That's going to be <hes> that's going to be <hes>. We can't get too crazy but we gotta we gotta be able to have fun and the guy has done a lot of good things from the backfield <hes> as a as a wide receiver out wide and obviously special teams goes without saying Matt Nagy bears head coach here on the rich Eisen show Chuck Pagano is one of my favorite people on Planet Earth Matt that I have met in in my sixteen plus years so I asked this with that respect upfront Vic Fangio not there are is really scaring a lot of bears fans and how he was able to turn the defense <hes> up another notch. Khalil Mack certainly helped <hes> on that front. What can you tell bears fans about the defensive side of the ball with Fangio now getting his shot for the first time in Denver well to me number? One is going to do a great job in Denver. I'm so happy for him to get that opportunity to be a head coach and I learned a lot from last year in just <hes> weekly <hes> duties responsibilities how to handle players and then he's a he's a brilliant brilliant <hes> defensive coach and just really knows things inside out his great scheming and and so but what I think is so neat about you know football in general or sports generals there's so many different flavors of different styles of of coaches and there's so many great coaches out there so when it comes down to it it's all about the players and what we do chuck like you said I mean I did not know chuck going into the interview process. It took me ten minutes Rao within the process to realize that this is my type guy and it every single day that were together. I I'm just so excited that we lose Vic Fangio to a promotion <hes> the players have built three to four years with with coach Fangio learning his scheme and what he does and they it had a lot of success and that's what's so neat but now chuck news and I mean this is he knows he's coming into a defense a team that has high expectations and I just love the fact that he came into this thing with with. Let's bring it on <music> mentality that that's what he wants. He understands that and you know him as a person like you said this guy doesn't care he's. He's happy. Go Lucky. I remember the day he's a player's coach meaning that he pushes somebody loves them. <hes> he has fun. He fits our culture. Yeah I'm just I'm really looking forward to seeing what he does with these guys and there's GonNa be highs and lows that's with everything but I have a lot of confidence and coach cooked down all right. Let's move to a little bit more of an omnibus portion of our conversation here coach Matt Nagy the first things first <hes> pass interference now being challengeable now you can review this stuff but you throw a flag to say hey <hes> my <hes>. My offensive player got interfered with. It's possible they go under the hood and say guess what Your Offensive Offensive Player is the one who shoved off. I'm wondering what your philosophy is on. Throwing a challenge flag for this is going to be this fall yeah well. I'm all for it. I think that you know it's it is a difficult job right now for the officials. Go out there and there's a lot of different calls that can be made but you know I do agree that <hes> obviously everyone goes back to the ram saint game and and you know we all we all don't want to see that happen again but it's it's trying to get things right and so as a for us and I know most coaches as we talk in the off season you have to be judicial with how you use <hes> deciding on when you're gonNA use use your challenge and I think what you're gonNA end up seeing is there's GonNa be some times early. In the you know in the first half where there might be some great calls or some palms or you might WanNa say man Dan I really want to challenge it but you really can't and and I'm okay with that <hes> <hes> or if you think it is for sure and you want to use it and you know you're GonNa win you feel a hundred percent and then you keep that challenge and you'll have it for later in the game but you just don't want to get now that you have the ability the challenge it and put a flag on the field. You don't want to be caught in a situation where you don't have it because US early in the game. That's my opinion. Okay your quarterback <hes>. Do you call them Mitch or Mitchell. What do you choose? You know what I try every other day too so today today we're on a Mitch Day. Tomorrow will be Mitchell okay very good. Did you know did you know he had the chugging of the bearn him because that was a very N._f._C. North quarterback competition thing that happened in the last seven months I i. I never saw it firsthand but when I did see it I wasn't surprised at all right so you thought he had that in them is basically what you're saying. Deeper sure yeah okay I did you know he's a he's a he's an Ohio guy and I'm a guy and his north east guys are they. You know it's it's <hes> that didn't shock me one bit okay. Does he call you Matt or Matthew. What does he call you on those days? He calls me coach. That's one way to put it. I liked that notice your spend a day at Wrigley field coach <hes> and it looks like you painted the black on your. <hes> ceremonial first pitch are do you have some baseball background. You know what rich I do. I did stop playing my junior year high school. <hes> I was a center fielder and a pitcher but it's it's totally different when you're up there on top of that mound they tell you to aim high so last year. When I threw the first pitch at dirty one in the in the by the mound I mean shooting by the home plate and my kids just crush me for for a whole year and so I went out there and was able to throw a strike and you know they say it's sixty eight miles per hour? My elbow felt like it was gonNA fall off but I I'll take it. I was definitely there's a lot worse out there. So I was happy with and then you did take me out to the ball game. Is there anything you'd care to clarify about that. <hes> the lyrics unbelievable I'll tell you what so I have this northeast accent just getting crushed for right now. It is what it is. My players already knew about it just because we talk about some ice cream toppings that we do <hes> on Saturday night the hotel and different types of topics that we put on the ice cream so they always laughed at me all year for that. That said that they thought that when you said peanuts you were saying something else. Is that what you're saying is well. They did you know and they rushed me all year and I should have known. I gotta be better prepared. I shouldn't owned on into that when you go out to the ball game that that word is in there. That's a complete failure. Have your players giving you so much grief for that one today. They're not here yet but I'm telling you right now. I can't tell you one of these coaches GonNa try to put that up in front of the T._v.. Iraq find out who it is or get fired fantastic. You also gave a commencement address at the University of Delaware that your monarch correct yes ma'am the blue hen is and you said you were going to come up with a specific perfect play call <hes> called acid can chicken correct which is a reference to the blue hen in a way correct. That's right okay yeah. We're <hes> we're it's I think <hes> anytime to get asked to to to give a commencement speech <hes> and then you get an honorary doctorates now my wife's able to call me to call me a doctor so I get that and so now I gotta give back to Delaware and we just gotTa get a play in there for the ASS kickin chicken so it's <hes> I have an idea what it's going to be. I haven't personal staff once it comes out. We'll let you know okay so we'll we'll see in scoring plays what you promised the good people. It's only that yeah all right so. Is it just for them or can I request a rich Eisen show. We'll play call no credit or you. Can you can request. We'll get it in okay. I think it should just be called. You know <hes> the rich Eisen show that's what it should be called because I'm Brando every opportunity and it should have been included least two. Who laterals can I do that through lateral yes of sorts okay all right well we we can do that? I can't promise you score but I can. We can get it in there and <hes> and for sure we will. I'll make sure that I declare when it's being called. That's correct. I appreciate that last one for you coach. This is personal for me. Okay <hes> and also my Guy Chris. Brockman is across the way when you come in here and personal. You'll meet him and you'll notice we're both follicly-challenged quite like yourself okay. I'm I'm I'm concerned for you that you is a follicly-challenged man. Go Go visor you go visor and you're leaving yourself completely unprotected to the elements and I'm wondering this this is clearly a choice. This is not something that's just happens clearly. You're making a choice. Why are you doing that coach? Because it not only leaves you unprotected. I got a mention it also accentuates as well leaves. You unprotected what why do do you do this. May I ask you know I just fought in Kansas City I- tons of where visor and then as I got here I just <hes> you know I I started wearing early on and <hes> I think we won a couple of ball games and there's a little bit a superstition behind it but now I'm like you know it's now because I get asked that question. Now I just do it just feels right. It feels it's it's it's just it's the way to go and <hes> I kind of like being different and and that to me I guess that's that's different but that's <hes> <hes> lots of sunscreen yet. <hes> which is which is great and then you know I got the people forget that when you're calling plays and you got the headset on in twenty degree weather in soldier field you as long as my ears are protected on good and so <hes> you know that's pretty simple. It's it's it's <hes> it's worth and I'm gonNA keep it going because a large percentage of your body heat escapes from the top of your head. It's like five degrees out and you're still letting your freak flag fly like that and I'm sitting there. I'm impressed but I'm also concerned. I'M NOT GONNA I appreciate for both you should try. Just try one time and just see I mean it's really not that Oh what the visor of visor with charter visor yeah you know wow. I don't even know I. I don't even know if I have that in me. I gotta be honest bold move. It's very if if I have the same amount of success that clearly you have had with an on might have to give it a try. How does that sound? I appreciate that yeah you need to for sure what percents you send me the visors I wear the visors and you institute the Rich Eisen.

It's an double accentuation like the old unisphere from <hes> doesn't work well for us now but he keeps going because when he won a couple of games now. If you just get a kicker Oh God they'll find one man and they'll find one that doesn't miss the kick and go on the today show all right.

It's part of all part of banking reimagined from Capitol N._A.. Member F._D._I._c. what's in your wallet <hes> so if you put the the bears over hyped I mean they won the division. They've got the defensive player of the year. They got the coach of the year. You know all of that and Trubisky is a hot and M._V._p.. Bet Right now. I just think in terms of expectations they have super bowl expectations that kind of equals hype for me. We can take them off. I'm just throwing it. I'm looking at who is quote unquote hype. I'm just thinking about teams teams that are Brown for sure. Obviously I'm the only one hyping Baltimore that's for sure and if you WANNA keep him on there just because you know I'm hyping them in. You want a referendum on me being wrong on the show fine. I've got them up. A Lotta jets expertise. The raiders are hyped raiders are hyped. Take the raiders instead of the bears. I think he put the raiders there instead of the bears and they're going to be they're going to be all over hard knocks and there are a ton of people that think Rudin plus Brown plus. There are draft choices plus. What car did a couple years ago? Plus hard knocks equals playoff push. Yes raiders fans. They are fired up browser hyped. Did you put the jets there. I put the OUGHTA jets hype. That's fair. That's fair. They have the best quarterback in the A._F._C.. East Que Se trolling on <hes> of the New York Daily Mail saying that Darnold the best quarterback in the division which is absurd. I told them that we can replace the ravens none. We just don't have any. We just don't have an N._F._C. team. That's all what N._F._C. team is hyped. I mean Atlanta he can't there's no. I mean who's hyped cowboys. Eagles cowboys are always hyped yes but they have we have a cowboy fan in the studio single day loose talk in super bowl they can they made the game in Los Angeles is that the bears did not don't forget the reason why the cowboys were here in Los Angeles to play in the playoffs is because the bears were not Dallas was set to go to New Orleans. I mean that was all set to go when the bears were set to come here and that's what really got a lot of rams fans concern based on the way that the rams looked in Chicago earlier in the season so I don't know how you could hype the cowboys although I think that they have super bowl <hes> possibilities as long Zeke doesn't hold out and doesn't hold it against the cowboys if he doesn't what other N._F.. niners hyped nobody's hyping Seattle or Arizona. You can't hypothermia one that that won the conference since last year and the rams right maybe niners Jimmy G. come back. They're not being hyped like the other teams so what so just make it for A._F._C.. Teams include the Ravens 'cause I'm hyping them and they'll finish last because everybody knows that they've got a great chance this year. Let's do it to go on a run at richeisenshow Johnson.

The Yardwork: Ep 138: Yankees Injury Problems & Vlad Jr

"What's up guys? Welcome back to the. I'm your host yard rogue, Andrew. And for today's episode. We're back on my buddy. Jack running a recap going on what's happening around the league. Because a lot of good stuff has been going on especially this past weekend. But before we enter that if you're the night tunes. Make sure you subscribe China sound the pod net. Makes you follow us and shadows to our sponsors hit factory baseball baseball. I saw a one and a special shadow tour guys over there at rock monkey if you guys seen on Instagram at the yard work posted a picture. We got a couple of t-shirts couple, hats, and some stickers and rock monkey. They're doing everything. Right. The clothes are comfortable. They look dope. I mean, you'll be to any summer barbecue in this apparel. And it looks fresh I love rocking it. And makes it even better is I love this story, and what they're trying to do with the brand the doing everything, right? These guys they want to help make change in the world. And every purchase purchase. You make ten percent of that goes helping people get clean water in need. And they've helped already over six hundred people say ten percent chain is everything and their hundred percent right rock monkey you're doing it. All fight say one thing. Everyone is go check him out man because you're not gonna regret it in these guys. They're good people and they wanna make change for the world. And now let's get into the recap. All right. So like, I said I'm here with my guy, Jack, Jack what's going on brother going? I just I was saying like thinking about it. And like, I have a little brother named Jack. And I was like hearing their brother, Jack. Which he doesn't hear you. He's upstairs right now. We'll just gonna we're gonna keep going keep going. Yeah. You said isn't here but say like we were doing some kind of recap. What's been happening the season? I think a lot of stuff has happened the past weekend or like five to ten days or so so I think we're gonna have some good stuff to talk about stuff. Lot of new London. New new faces in the big leagues right now about the lot. Lot of new faces specially for the Yankees because we really haven't talked about the injuries. No, we haven't. And let's be honest. The Yankees are playing with AAA boy club right now. Yeah, I think that's very safe. But. I think pashmina great job building farm system because the Inkster still winning somehow yet I mean, thank goodness of the of seen obviously tremendous amount of injuries from the start. It was bad with you know, Hicks, Severino deal and Didi and since then big offers have gone out gone out at some point Sanchez was out for a bit judges out ends out. But you know, what I think they've been saved by some of the guys. I mean, you saw Clint Frazier. Who's obviously on the L come out and produce offer a few weeks air. I think the big story. Lance to be Domingo her mom. I mean that guy has been been dealing. Yeah. I think do everything that's could go wrong for the has been going wrong with the players injuries and stuff like that. Every now and the the fans wanted to season to start off at least, and like it sucks because it's not even like the players are just not playing well and angry fans it just. When your guys are just physically not even out there. I mean, it's it's really frustrating especially because looking at the Yankees record in their their eighteen fourteen. They're they're both five hundred they're doing pretty well. They had a nice like six or seven game win streak here. You got to imagine like what they could be doing with all their guys on the lineup. Like, holy crap. I know do literally have a Yankee starting lineup of guys injured who would be starters. We haven't. We haven't even seen we've seen what STAN one game. We haven't seen heck's judge has been out for at least has been over ten days. I feel like you could you could create an all star roster of Yankees at are literally creating author author being keys that are it's it's unbelievable. I've never seen anything like it. And I'm I'm a little bit. I'm scared for some of some other players are healthy guys like Voight and glacier because it seems like there's some kind of bad luck going around the Yankee clubhouse yet. I mean, I don't know what it is something in the water, man. Hugh, I might be hopping on the the fire Steve Donoghue bandwagon. Fire the Yankees head trainer. He's been with the workers Asian for a long time, but feeling like, you know, medical practices change like maybe needs new trainers with some new treatments in there. At the interesting, you brought an actually heard a little while ago that the Yankees have like not been or were I don't know who wrote this could just be biased. But the Yankees have not been keeping up with temple workout stretches and like preparation in spring training. Some other teams do and they're kind of more old school with a and I wonder if that might be a problem if they're not keeping up with the times, you're trying to keep advancing their therapy. Is that a result of players not being able to handle the playing every single day? I mean, if you know anyone that's that that set are. Boiler, or if you've ever played blow yourself like, you know, how important preparation is when play and I'm not so sure that you know, that the Yankees, I'm figured out preparation aspect. It could be that they're they're a little more old school. But but something's definitely up with you know, how these guys are preparing themselves because to me it's not a fluke that they got thirteen guys sample bliss and only reason it's thirteen enough fourteen is because do just came back. Right. I'm definitely something wrong. There's some there's something wrong with you can't even say their injury prone right now because. They're they're so far. I can't even say injury anymore. There's something wrong. Like you said. It is no more coincidences. There's something wrong. And there needs to be signed fixed. I I understand it when when tool which goes down and Paxton goes down like those guys, I you know, they've had injury histories the too low injury was going to happen at some point. So like, I'll take that. But when you have the entire outfielder the Yankees and the fourth outfielder go down, I mean, come on, right. Like that's just a little bit ridiculous at that point. Yeah. Andre percent of. I mean, do new judge go down met in like he's been on the what was the deal once in his career before this was last year that broken rest or maybe having another like a like a pulled muscle, whatever. But like, what are you going to do their man, you know, the pitcher into Hainan, right? You break is rest is broken. This this time he just has a key swings. Maybe little bit too awkwardly. And now as bleak as. Destroyed. I mean, that's the thing. They've been injuring themselves in the most exactly eight they've been sliding the basis funny. They've been you know, like getting hit by pitches, and and just tweaking little muscles. Pardon me, hold. You know, the Yankees are just being a little bit conservative with it. And you know, keeping guys on on the DL about our little longer than they should be. So we're good in the second half do even think of Clint Frazier men. He hears ankle fused like he was kind of walking back to second because it was like a fake throwback and just kind of rolled his ankle off the bag. Yep. Exactly. And then now he's been out since the angel series. Yes. I mean, I don't know what's going on. I really hope I really hope they're holding guys out on the DL little longer than they should be because you know, like, obviously second half is more important than I after one. Everybody goodbye then. But at the same time like you gotta put your best team on the field. I mean, you're Yankees. You can't you can't have Tyler Wade out, by the way. Tyler Wade is. Next, Greg bird. I am sick and tired of title, wait on love. I love. I love Tyler waited, man. I can't I'm not with you on that one. I am so over in. He is bid a consistent mess up for the keys for a couple years. Now, I love down there. He tears it up. Tears it up in triple eight hits fell three forty steals like twenty five bases and four games comes up to the Yankees crowns to second base in dull plays all the time. Can't stand him. Listen, go alone. I want Ronald to raise back the that's just me. I'll give you one thing on Tyler way. I could see why people are frustrated with them. I like the guy for some reason. I think he's I think he's a real great fielder. You put him anywhere like his utility. But I mean, he's got a career one ninety batting average. You can't play for the New York Yankees with a career batting average of one ninety. I understand that I could care less. If you're jumping around the whole field of the one thousand fielding percentage, vacant diving plays every time you're hitting below two hundred for the Yankees at year out. It's not gonna fly with with as as a Yankee fan with extremely high expectations. It's not gonna work. My thing is like. This is my thing Tyler Wade, right? Like, I think he could potentially be everyday starter. But not for the Yankees. You know what I'm saying? Like, maybe he just needs a bigger sample size in, you know, less of a pressure cooker environment. Right. Not not here you need us. But players come out and plates. It's the freaking Yankees, man. Every year. You know, the Yankees are one of those teams are looking for a ring not may team to any sports really say that the patriots the warriors or whatever. But the Yankees are always team to beat. I feel like we we had a little bit of a rough stretch like two thousand eleven till like fifteen or sixteen but it's it's the near gangs. Tyler Wade, though, he's one of my favorite players because I I love good fielders. I can watch good fielding all the time. But there are times when he's up to bat and a runner in scoring position in there's two outs. And unlike the I know I know he's a one ninety. It's like, I'm not I like the guy, but I'm not stupid to the fact that he does not bring very good baseball up to the plate is what it is yet. And he's a perfect example of like those guys you can you can scheme your way into the big leagues. If you're good fielder. If you have the glove, you can get there, and that's a really important part. But you guys can do that noth-. You guys can do that. Few few guys can do that with the love. But I think I think Calloway too is one of them and his speed, man. They can't do basis if you don't get on base. The fact that's true frustrating, man. It is frustrating affiliated fan right now. But you know, what they're they're holding the phone. They are in their own. And like, I'm rude for Tyler Wade man to me I can't classify Tyler way with Greg Birgit. Because like I do not like Greg bird in the slightest bit man, I can't stand him. I got all I really abou- redbird makes me mad. I'm not there yet. I'm not I'm not saying he's quite the Greg bird level because Greg Drake birds expectations were much higher than thrown Ted than Tyler Wade. Wade's experts were known expecting way to thirty five home runs right off. But at the same time, I mean, they're both of their productions have been abysmal agree. It's not something. I'm used to the Yankees fan growing botching Robbie canot being planks. A smooth second base hitting thirty runs a year. Man. I love Robbie no. Those were the days, man. Those those those were the days those days will return to that that winning streak a little bit. But it's going to have to take a few weeks until we get our guys back off the deal, and but not under so grateful for glacier Torres, man men. Do I love that guy? The only reason I love labor Torres at this point is because he's not on the DL. The I'll excuse me. I'm still going to call it the deal that you have it's understandable, but glacier Torres. I mean, he hasn't been hitting grade either get hot start in a little hotter. But but he needs to be better. Right. Gotta be a three-hitter. He's gonna pull the weight. Now, I agree. But I mean with everything that's happened with his Yankee team, and he's been pretty much hinted loop weight have been the centerpiece of the Yankees, which is I feel like if you said if someone's kind of not a shock to them because who else are you going to say has been one of the centerpiece of the because everyone's been hurt. I got I got labor some respect man for staying healthy and playing every day. And I mean, I think it's good shortstop. He's a good guy. Take DD spot. Little he'll eat up at he's. I mean, he's a guy that's going to have to grow up fast because right and have to be the cornerstone of this team now for a while for twenty two years old man, you get ready for finals right now time, but I was just about to say the for a couple of weeks air when you know, the first view guys went down a DJ Lamaze you I mean that guy was playing out of his new one. I was you know, what I I wasn't super keen on the signing. I I liked it a little bit. But man, I'm so happy that got him because he was really really holding down the fourth of the Yankees. And now he's hurt. What is going on there? Just way to students gone. You just make sense yet. Just make sense. A guy starts heating up clip Frazier. You wear and they get hurt. There's nothing really we can do about just hold our breasts, and there's no there's no trucks planations. And we can we can blame it on on. You know, the the doctors man, therapists, they're not training our Weber, but there's there's there's nothing to say about thirteen guys on the injured list. Yeah. This is just a plastic Yankee fan complaint banter. Right. Dada. Do it. But listen if it, but this is the one thing where I tell people weren't Yankee fan. And unlike you guys would would maybe even matter if it was your team because no other major league baseball team could still have a winning record with thirteen Ghazni Angeles. But the near gangs that a chance so not a chance nobody has much depth. So Yankee fan were still optimistic were in second place of any other team. There's no shot. No, not at all. I'm with you. Because those non did not many teams on paper healthy that are better than the year gangs. That I don't know if there is. But anyway, let's let's say way from the Yankees for a little bit. And let's go on last night a little bit. We're talking about Kevin pillar, dude, robbing Nixon's ELS first career major league home run. It is next up. He does go yard. So it does get his first home run yesterday. But dude disrespect from Kevin Poole. Our man. I mean, I think it was even more disrespectful that if you see the video he climbs all the way up on the wall. It looks like it's gonna go way over his head many just creeps down catches writers. Chest. I mean, Kevin power. I was talking about it with someone yesterday about fantasy baseball and stuff. Someone told me. Hey, jack. I think I think they should start adding defensive metrics in the Vance gets points, you know, robbing a home runs on like that now no way because in Kevin polar becomes the best player. Lakes. Yeah. Drew, and like you said he he climbs the wall makes over his head then he crawled out a little bit. If you like overran it takes away the guys home run. And he is so high on his fielding, right? I think he's a full for that, man. I think he's such a like in a joking way a scumbag for that how you know like in a laughing way like he's trying to mess with the young guys. And then now read this defensive metrics in fancy fancy baseball a guy who bats I two thirty to fifty every year is going I overall. No case will I what might trout it would be like three players in in that kind of league because he's got the defense. Notre drew drew right out, but upside employer. I mean, he will go way too high. You can't blame the guy for taking sends L foam run home run away. Among glad that sends Elga gallon of home run later in the ball game. But jeez, like hemp laurel even on the Blue Jays with that really tall fence was climbing up will like military, man. Like, he's like that. He's like that glitch in like like MLB to K like where you can climb the green monster in rob home runs over that. Like, let's stick him in Fenway and see if he can run over the monster. Like, he probably could you attempted for sure. Yeah. The guys the guy's a freak a heated. I don't think you get enough hype firs defensive plays lately, I've been feeling like Byron Buxton and Billy Hamilton began. All the I. Templar made some of the most incredible place. I've seen outfielder make toast. From the time of the Blue Jays. It turns pure catching ability. He must he must be top three in the major leagues. I think he's I think he's probably top maybe two outfielder is not anyways, like just ability. He's incredible to watch. If you see the guys robbing home runs is basically just him in Mike trout, stealing the highlight reel pretty much all the time. But in terms of defensive center fielders have you seen any of the throws? Ramon Laureano is made the as two laser beams that that guys is incredible isn't credible. He's he's a guy. He's the type of guy that could bat like two hundred on on my team, and I wouldn't even care. I don't think it's as you may not on my fancy teams eight these not bad in two hundred fezzet team if I was a major league owner than yeah. The open, and let's he's back to Iraq. Don't even bang. I would assume it's higher than two hundred. But if he's two hundred and he's making those plays. I'm not I there's no take him out of the lineup. He's playing every day. If you know, I think outfield arms gold little bit under the radar seal. Flashy plays by guys like Lauren in like the guys with good arms. Like don't usually make those kind of plays whole time. What if you think about it like guys don't run on on people with great arms like that? If you're throwing a hundred ten miles an hour from the outfield link your Aaron Hicks or or more cake or one of those guys guys just won't run on you legals will not score guys from second base. That's that's a pretty big thing. And like you said it might not be as. Flashy, but it might be more effective. Absolutely. If you're holding guys if if you're on first base it and maybe a right fielder. Maybe you could stretch it out at third on it. But you know, the guy's gonna flute cannon. So you hold that second the Nacajuca web tendrils sac fly or who knows? I think it's I think it's good to. I think it's good that we're talking about defense for a little bit. It's been kind of him so far today because I did definitely not something that people are talking about right? I always I always say think fielders don't get enough. Don't enough creditor height. I always I've been saying that. Yeah. For sure I it's it's obviously nowadays hitting is everything I feel like the MVP raises solely based on who, you know. Who's got the combined best like average home runs RBI's? Yeah. I feel I feel like that's what it seemed seems to be in the past couple years. I mean, if you look at if you looked at defensive metrics, you would say Reddaway that might Trautmann scheme that point writers is wars been incredible any rights. So so I give love to it. Sometimes because I feel like don't always get it and defended important man, I don't want liability out there, not at all. So speaking about you know, I think some kind of maybe surprising us or maybe we're talking about lack of hidden right now. What's going on with junior? I don't know if he watched first game. Did you watch? I I watch Parviz first game. I did not see his first hit until later that night on ESPN. I watch is. I think you might have been no I think it was the second bat he hits a he gets jammed on ball those running in like six inches inside, Moses Hanson. It's a bowl that looks based on the camera angle to be going to the fourth deck of you know, Roger center and the camera angle just screwed over everybody pans out to the guy catches on the warning track. So I I I thought you know, this guy's just get hit home run every at that. But it has been the case, I think I think part of it is that I've I've washed play a little bit. And he seems to be pressing lot. He's swing so incredibly hard. That's dial. But I mean, if you're swinging harder can't every pitch not gonna make solid contact. I mean, he is always first RBI yesterday. I believe in a believe it was six or seven games in five to seven games. And so that kind of seems like a while. For for the gun. Everyone's been talking about, you know, the machine design Williamson or or the future LeBron James of Toronto. But he's one ninety one Rb, I know home runs. I it's definitely odd. Because if you look at his numbers in the minor leagues credible coming up to this point this year, like three fifty right tear it up, and you know, AAA pitching, obviously, not not as good as majorly pitching. But you know, he shouldn't be hitting one forty. I think he's gonna get hot soon. And we just gotta wait until you. He relaxes a little bit of the dish. And I've been sauce. I news like he's even though is not batting. Well, it's still like to point tire than his dad was through like like five six games. Whenever was. But like correct me if I'm wrong, but like back, then, you know, now, the powerful from media lag GRA was not hype as much as his son who's a number one prospect and all baseball. No. I think that that might play a role too. I mean, he has a lot to live up to your dad shirt. Mcdonald's dad is being number one prospect. Yep. For sure he's and he's been a number one. Picture for years years. Then the guy like everybody's been waiting for free in the come up. It's been Vlad junior Vlad junior junior for for a couple years in any maybe getting a little bit. Maybe he's just not finding swing but he's decentrally too good to to be a bus. But the good news though. He's only twenty years old the guy point hope, he's he's the same age as I am. I'm obviously in October prism sit near throw in lake eighty to offer mountain hidden to seventy max Terry role. I'm sitting here being a wiffle ball MVP while this guy's playing for the Blue Jays yet. I gotta comb slab, right? E-? Still kid is gonna long way to go in a kunia Euboea sophomore in Commodore talent. Yeah. I mean definite. I'm not hitting on. I was expecting to see more at this point. Everybody wanted to see him, you know, hit a couple in his first game out. It'll happen. I'm not. Not we're not saying that we could do better if we're his spot or we'd be number one prospects type of thing. But you know, we want to go. We wanna watch them. We're we're awaiting for were expecting to come. And we're hoping it soon. I mean, let's call it next next three days. He's going to have his first home run for sure metal do we're gonna we're gonna save this clip and put on Athens, you can take it to the bag tech. So were yet do so I think definitely Vlad unit. He's going to pick it up soon. And then let's stay in the aliens real quick about a team that has been had thrown the guest all year long, dude the Tampa Bay rays. I know we've been saying for so long how sneaky and good. This team is going to be but mad and not expect this I did not expect even Tyler glass now to be right now. He's kind of anger this rotation. Oh, absolutely clean ashamed. Some of his his highlights and the guy just looks like in an imposing presence on the mountains. Not a guy would wanna face. I think he's six nine or something. Frasier Dali six nine throwing ninety eight with a. Wipeout purple. I mean with him with Charlie Morton and right now with with other guys at the top rotate on of course blades now at. And of course, blade snow was timing. We I l lake snow course rating nail Cy Young. But but the the raise, you know, with no payroll at all have top of the way to find success. They they have their three top guys at the top of the rotation. And you know, they play around with the bullpen days yesterday. They had they had Yanni Torino's come out of the bullpen. It's seven ever seen bullpen guide for seven innings never unless it's like a fruit twenty inning game yet. And you gotta get another like the fourteenth twelve thinning whatever I said it. I said it from the beginning of this year. They probably set it on the podcast before you have. I think Kevin caches is s- manager in the big leagues. I think he's a genius. When it comes to, you know, bullpen management and things like that. And they're definitely scaring me a little bit being agreed. And dude, especially let's talk about the trade that happened like last year that I don't think we really talked about monumental. We've I've been a few times on. The podcast because Shane BAAs involved. And he came on the show, and he's a real cool, dude. But they gave up who they give the pirates. I don't think Archer. I'm not even I'm not even sure what else to raise gave up. But in return, they get Austin meadows. They get Tyler glass. Now, they got Shane BAAs. Who's now in their minor leagues and dude Austin meadows, tearing it up and Tyler glass now like we said who's been insane this year, he couldn't even buy a win for the Pittsburgh Pirates. And then he comes outgoing like five hour ever to start off obviously glass now has been big highlight for me, I think he's been actually incredible the Austin meadows man last year washed on the pirates he came up for for about a week there hit four home runs in six game. And then he immediately got sent down right apartments. So he became kind of like a a an afterthought for them. But holy crap is even Terry. He was there for for a week or two I think was month. But but he sees definitely a someone to watch yet. I think the pirates mid made a mistake with them. You know, you said that he tore it up for it was ten days. Also get sent back down again. I think that deadly up confuse some people he gets traded. I think they kind of didn't think much about them and they messed Dublin because he's absolutely tearing up any was for a little bit in Pittsburgh. And I think if you think about it just based on you know, what division of the pirates play in how competitive that image right now, which I don't think is gonna they're going to be super competitive team on central probably wasn't smart to give away to your top top young guys in in return for Chris Arp through getting up there. I agree. And when you look at this, and I'll central met I mean, they're fifteen and fifteen and they're in fourth place. I I don't know how many other how many other division your fifteen and fifteen in your fourth place. I mean, they would be it'd be third place in L central. There will be their place in the it'd be it'd be third place in L west. They'd be third place in a lease. I mean. I don't know just going off American League teams right now. So and you don't think they're over performing their expectations too. Because a lot of good teams in that division. Yeah. I agree. I think there are surprising people who would have known happened, and they had glass now is there as Austin meadows, tearing it up and then still chain buzz in the minors. Just developing a young guy to nineteen twenty years old. So I don't know I don't know what kind of thought process winters that move. No, I'm not sure, but speaking of the annal central I mean, that's to me one of the more interesting races in baseball now. It like if you think back to last year, you know, the brewers obviously ran away with it basically exclusively because Christian yelich yell at one the most ridiculous second half of all time any has had that I after here he at he's been just as good, but still the bruiser in third place. Right. And you know, I think that's in part because the brewers, you know, their starting pitching isn't great think they just signed yoga's follows rights shore of that. But yeah, the cardinals offseason moves to me are really really paying off for them up of Goldschmidt. That was huge in my book. I think that's gonna really push them over the I agree. Also, I think golden it was a huge become. I think he's one of the one of the best bass players have on your team. I think is a great player. I think you might even be a better locker room guy. I think he's a leader that some of the young Carlos players needed yet. And now, they're they're three hitter pulled a young that guy is a superstar. He's a he's a real stud, and you know, people forget that two years ago pulled a young for the cardinals hit like twenty five home runs and last year. He had like sixteen or seventeen in an only play sixty games. He's been really good for them this year. They obviously have guys that are Staples. That lineup like like yadi porn is like that. Like know Wong people like that. I think they have a the pieces to put together a good year. I love on the cardinal Steve off course stable like Matt carpenter who actually had a really insane map the last year as well. What are some beta out there and center, I think a great player. I like I think he got he put. Yeah. He plays super tough. I think he's a great outfielder. I think he's a pretty clean fielder, and he's been getting done and the cardinals do first place twenty and thirteen. They're looking good. Yeah. Definitely getting teams. They always gotta keep your eye on they'll they'll sneak up on you hundred percent, the car of the car the central dude is I think between the cardinals brewers mostly between the cardinals brewers though. I think it's going to get very chaotic at starting gaining the summer man was only met July August time, I think that's gonna be the divisional watch. Yeah. I know I think especially if if the brewers are intending in the second half, you're gonna have to see if they go out and sign a guy like Tikal or emerald because you know, obviously, the the back end of their bullpen has been a kind of plagued by injuries on. We know that was such a strong suit for them last year and the rotation. Just isn't isn't a rotation. I think can win a championship. So you have to see maybe they make some rooms during the stern the all-star break closer to the second half. But yeah, I think it's going to be a really exciting division match up there and delay type Tiga, man. I think teams really gonna start trying to pursue a man after them it'll be draft. Because we know the rulers you cycle you've got to work out a draft pick to give to the Astros. I think that's why teams are kind of headed on it. So who knows you might be able to get signed even before the all-star break. Yes. I mean, it seems to me like a guy that town would not be onsite at this point. If there if there wasn't a big reason is asking for a lot of money but draft picks really important right now, I think teams are gonna pass on him until you know, that that super to deadline or whatever it is. And then you know, once that passes, they'll they'll go after him. And I think the brewers are team the watching in that that race under my lesson when I asked you is kaikal, you know, kind of the backlash that you had to do to get him. But what was Kimball wired teams pursuing this guy? Why not signed yet? I think I think it's because the money I think. But don't you think he might be worth the money? He might be. But you gotta for if all make a comparison with Kimber lawyers. Andrew Miller, Andrew Miller for the Yankees Indians was for two or three years. Probably the best reliever. Very domino question. And now for the cardinals he's had he's gone better as of late, but he's had his struggles. And he's not the reliever used to be he's barely even their setup man at this point. So, you know, it's it's a risky about the. It's a riff at you. You know, you have to weigh. I think Kimbrell is is definitely someone that's worth having the back in the bullpen. When he's asking a contract for six years teams. Just don't wanna give it give it to them. This is too much for reliever. Sued. I I have no idea. I'm just at a loss for Kirk Kimbrell is not signed. But I mean, you said if you bring up some of the previous guys and the money for creek kimbrel might not make sense assumptions. If I mean, it's hard to know what what are going through people right mind in the front offices. I think a lot of teams right now are happy where their rosters at. And you know, maybe would benefit from having guy like kimbrel, but are are waiting to pull the trigger. But those guys those guys are too good to go. The whole without getting sign though end up on a bigly club by the end of the year. But it's just a matter of time of when when I agree I want Wade seem Ed we got a lot of good stuff in the episode. Couple good predictions of Ladd junior got himself about the raise and now. Kyko kimbrel so excited. See what happens next, and we'll have you on again soon. Mandela? We talk about some of these predictions in the future get some more recaps in if I'm excited guys finish out his next couple of weeks of school that we got some. Is you'd be smooth sailing. I can't wait to to be done with school. So I can throw on MLB TV all that. That is at the fact so like I said thank you again for hopping on it's always best episodes when we on together. Yeah. I agree. I love it me too. So yes, thank you guys for tuning in. I'm still you can't do. This was the yard work.
