"So what kind of manager was he and do you think he will be a different manager as he gets older and Pujols and yachty or gone and say Wainwright's gone after this year? I mean, did he defer to those veteran leaders in a way? Like and was that the thing to do, I guess, in that Clubhouse that would seem to make sense, probably. I don't think he necessarily deferred to those players, but I think he in general has a very hands off managing style. You know, he said before, if you need me to go on that Clubhouse and motivate you to be better, you don't belong here. You should be motivated by yourself. And I think that was a message that really resonated with the Clubhouse. You know, again, we've talked about the leadership here. They don't really need a lot of people harping on them to go out there and get motivated and play. But what I liked about Ollie and what I think really earned him the respect early from people in the organization. Again, he has been there a very long time. It's not like he was inheriting a brand new club. But he just stressed having an open and honest relationship, and he backed it up. So he would go out and he would tell players who underperformed that they were underperforming. He would go out and to the media too. We would ask, you know, how is so and so doing and he would be honest about if they're expectations met or their performance met their expectations or not. So the players were able to see, okay, this is a guy that's going to be honest with me to my face and also he's going to call me out or he's going to hype me up or he's going to be fair to the media when I'm performing well and it was easy for guys to have conversations with him because he treated them just with the basic respect of telling them how it is. That's who Ollie marvel is as a person. He's not one that's going to beat around the bush with you. He's going to be direct. He's going to answer your questions. He's going to let you know what he thinks. And I think in a Clubhouse that already has so much leadership internally, that was the best approach for him to take. I know this is supposed to be a 2023 season preview, not a 2022 year in review, but just one backward looking question. How did Albert Pujols do that? I still ask myself that question. And I think that's the perfect way to phrase it. Sometimes, I mean, we still talk about them, obviously. He's pretty much an everyday topic even though he's retired, but it is certainly surreal. When you think about the 2022 season, 'cause I remember when he his first day that he showed up and it was like, okay, you know, in a theory, it's a good idea because he's still so loved here in St. Louis. It's a great story. But the Cardinals were so adamant that they did not bring him back because it was a great story. The front office brought him back because they thought it could be helpful and little did they know he was their best player in the second half and they had two MVP candidates and he was still their best player. It was a great story. I think Cardinals fans will I certainly won't remember that season for a very long time. Hopefully it helped leave the pain of an early playoff exit, but yeah. What a way to go out. If we all went out like Albert, I think we'd all be okay. Yeah. Well, we're going to go out with our traditional last question for these segments, which I guess may be sort of simple for the cardinals, but we always ask just how do you define success for this team this season, what would constitute a successful season and it's the Cardinals, I guess you always sort of just expect to make the playoffs and win the division again, hopefully, but is there any more granular way that we could define a successful season for them when it comes to either progress on the farm system or progress for certain players other than just, I guess, the obvious of, yeah, we should try to win the division again, and everyone wants to win the World Series. Nope, you nailed it. The bare minimum for the Cardinals is winning the division, right? I think at this point, for them to be successful in 2023, they have to win in the playoffs because while they have done a fantastic job of being a playoff caliber team nearly every season, they have not won consistently in the postseason since 2019 when they were swept by the nationals and the NLCS. In fact, they've had three straight first round exits in the playoffs. So you can make the argument, okay, yeah, they make the playoffs every year. But what do they do with it? So this year, I think the measuring of successes can they win in the playoffs, not can they get there, although that is the first step. It's do they have what it takes to win games to win series in the playoffs because we haven't seen it in a little bit. Yep, it's been a long drought poor flung suffering. And every time I say something like that, I'm sure pirates fans or red spans are like throwing their computers or phones at the wall. I get it. I really do. You got to placate your base. We get it. Exactly. It's all relative. All right. Well, you can read about the cardinals all season at the athletic. Katie will be covering them as usual and you can also find her on Twitter at Katie J Wu and you can hear her doing some previewing and other podcasting as well on the athletic baseball show. So thanks very much, Katie for making some time. Thanks, Ben, thanks, Meg. I appreciate it.

A new online game challenges how much New Yorkers know about real estate, Liz Warner reports. The new game is called lord of the rent, and it's similar to the sweeping phenomenon whirl, but instead of letters, players guess apartment prices in New York City. They're given multiple clues about an apartment's features like location, number of bedrooms, baths, and other amenities, and they must guess what it costs to rent. People who guess a wrong number are told just how far off the mark they were as a percentage. Depending upon what's accuracy, players are either congratulated, or they get a snarky quip about their real estate acumen.

I'm grad sequel. This is Bloomberg daybreak weekend, our global look ahead at the top stories for investors in the coming week. I'm John Tucker in New York. They're back, or should I say they're coming back? Then 15 minutes of leaving the stage, president Trump knew that the capitol was besieged and under attack. The January 6th committee holding another hearing this coming week after getting deep into exactly what happened at what former president Trump's role was before Congress recessed for the summer break. It looks like my father's handwriting. Now the January 6th committee is planning to be at it again, and for more, let's head to our Bloomberg 99 one newsroom in Washington at Amy Morris. Amy. All right, thank you, John the House committee investigating the January 6th the insurrection at the capitol is going to hold more hearings the next one set for September 28th. Let's get a preview now from Bloomberg congressional reporter Billy house, Billy, always so great to talk to you. Thanks so much for joining us. Glad to be here. Now, let's talk about the committee what they're looking for now. I'm wondering if they're trying to sort of recapture some of the limelight after all the other events and allegations related to the investigations in a president Trump and other Republicans, what are they trying to do here? Well, I think you're right. I mean, certainly this committee trailblazed a lot of investigative pursuits, you have to give them credit for that. But they haven't had a public hearing since July 2021. The only real thing that's happened committee wise is their vice chair Liz Cheney got defeated in a landslide primary vote in their home state. So now, with this at least one hearing set for 20 September 28th, Wednesday. They're hoping to sort of recapture their luster, at least regain a bit of the spotlight in relevancy. They are also supposed to release a report, are they not? What do you expect out of that? Well, that's going to be part of the what the chairman Benny Thompson says will be the not quiet part of the next few weeks. Along with this hearing, they do plan to release an interim partial report of their findings in October. And that's just weeks of course before the midterm congressional elections that's sure to produce some hoots and hollering from the other side regarding timing. A final report isn't really going to come from this committee tell December, almost when the buds are goes off on their charter and so they're going to put together something earlier and right before the election. Yeah, you mentioned the hoots and hollers in the timing of all of this. How is this report likely to be received? How are these upcoming hearings likely to be received? Do you anticipate hearing some people say, hey, you know, the timing of this is suspect, or does it seem to follow suit? I think you will hear a Republican suggest at the timing is suspect. But public polling shows has shown that as dramatic as their 8 hearing since June have been and is highly watched Benny Thompson mentions more so than any other congressional hearings, they really haven't moved the needle too much among Republicans or even Democrats. People are pretty much where they were before the hearings on Donald Trump and his culpability for January of January 6th, 2021. But the hearing, the report itself coming right before the election. That's another matter. And that's sure to prompt even perhaps some counter reports from Republicans. And we are talking with Bloomberg congressional reporter Billy House about the upcoming hearings by the January 6th committee and what we may expect from any reports that come from those hearings. And you were talking about moving the needle, Billy, former president Trump still holding some rallies, including one in Youngstown, Ohio, this past weekend, and he talked about the investigations I want to play a sound bite for you and let's talk about it on the other side. The unhinged persecution of me and my staff and they go into people that know me and they threaten them with jail time unless you say something bad about Trump. They're threatening them. So are people still buying into this idea that president Trump is this maligned target or are there some within the GOP who are now starting to sort of be turned off by this in addition to the allegations that the 2020 election was stolen? It seems as though there might be some shine coming off of this. There are indications that some of the use, for instance, party candidates and moderate or swing districts would rather he not show up or even get involved in their races. But let's keep in mind there are at least 45 Republican candidates on the ballot for the House and Senate who have either said and continue to say the 2020 election was stolen or cast out on its legitimacy. So the fact that that sort of sentiment is disappeared within the party is flat wrong. In fact, people are running partly on that basis. They believe that's true. And they need to be elected because of that. Let's take it a step further and talk about QAnon if we could just for a minute, there is some indication that there's an increasing connection with QAnon or perhaps an interest in QAnon. What is that situation like on the hill right now? Is this something that people are taking seriously as a political force or as an influencer or is it the opposite or is anybody even giving them the time of day? Well, Democrats are going to give lip service to horror and fear and teeth shattering over that no matter whether it's true or not. What's more interesting is within the far right of the House Republican party would be the new addition of the house freedom caucus. The emergence of the reemergence of QAnon sentiment and some members has kind of broken some of the unity that that group hopes to have if the Republicans take over the majority next year. The house freedom caucus can be very potent if a new speaker Kevin McCarthy or a new Republican speaker by any other name only has sub 5 or 6 vote margin on bills. So the freedom caucus hopes to once again flex its muscle, but internally within its own numbers, there's disputes over whether some of those who embrace QAnon are just themselves. I mean, there's doubt about their legitimacy and whether that really helps their cause at all. As far as these hearings are concerned, other events have already come out of that. And based on what they have learned in the hearings. For example, representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, introducing a bill, changing how Congress may count presidential electors, first of all, let's talk about what that would do if it got anywhere if it became law. Number one, and number two, if there are any other events or any other things that have come out of this because of these hearings. I number one, the election count act reform bill put forward by Cheney and lofgren and is not the only exhaust the only bill in town and that kind of speaks to how this committee is lost some of its front row are Lester or relevancy. There are other bills as the committee is weighted to release some of its recommendations kind of scooped it on its own area. So there's that Bill, but there's also a Senate bills and those differences will have to be made. The key items those bills are that could specify that the vice president can't nullify an election or as in presiding over the congressional certification of an election can't do a Trump wanted by his vice president. Mike Pence to do and block or delay Joe Biden's victory. The other thing is that it increases the number of lawmakers that are required to approve a disapproval of a state's electoral slate. But does the committee hopes to have a whole slew of recommendations, some could come before the election and some of that final report in December that could range from campaign finance recommendation changes that Trump committed fraud in raising some of this money after the election

"They trade a 22 fourth for 5th to give up Shelby Harris, who was good in that Monday night game. Noah fan drew lock. And then they gave Russell Wilson the 5 year 161 $1 million guaranteed deal to new ownership. There's a little new owners syndrome in there. But this was the classic, this guy was so great in the mid 2010s. He was off the last couple of years. Well, we can excuse that all these different ways. Monday night, he looked like the same guy he looked like the last couple of years. He's not the same athlete. There's a couple times when I felt like I wasn't running around. He just didn't. He missed some throws. Like the one played a Judy where he underthrew him to the point that it was an easy touchdown and it turned into like a hard one. I just wasn't impressed that I thought it was pretty telling. I know it's been discussed for 5 days, but or four days, but his coach was like, it's fourth and 5. You just gave this guy a 160 1 million guaranteed. And you're trying to 64 yard field goal and you're actually like setting it up to kick a 64. What are the odds that what did you think the odds were that that was going? I would have put out like 15 very little. I think the stat I read was like two out of 42 times has a kicker made a 64 yarder or more in the last ten years. And then fourth and 5 exactly. It's like 45%. So the odds itself, even if you're just looking at it in a vacuum, made no sense. I've spoken to Broncos people and it's like, and this sounds crazy. If it was an 8 yard gain from javonte on third down and it wasn't a 9 yard gain and if it was to the 47 and not the 46, they would have gone for it, but Brandon McManus told them on the sideline I'm not blaming mcvan as he's like get it to the 46th on the left hash, I can hit that. I will hit that 46. Of course he's gonna say that. He wants The Rock, but the other thing is this bill like they iced him and he was way off. When they iced you and you get that free kick, does the coaching staff not think like, all right, that was no good. No, they were like, trot them back out there. Let them try it again. It was abominable by Hackett. The two, the two moment, it's funny, 'cause Dave ball was the other way with the Giants where he was just like, we're fucking going for it. And he was like, fuck it, we're on the road. Let's go. And then you have Arthur Smith, who's on the 42 in New Orleans up to chance to put away fourth and one. You're going nowhere anyway. You're not a playoff team. This is a game that you ran that first down. New Orleans frontline wasn't even good in that game. Yeah. Yeah. And instead they punt it and it backfires and they lose. And then this one, you got your new QB. You just gave them all that money. Do you believe in them or not? And if you get a fourth and 5 and a Seattle, if you're playing against Detroit in week 13, fine. You're in Seattle. Like imagine that locker room, you come back and you convert that because Russell got it. Or if you don't, you hold your head up high and you say, all right, well, I was putting the ball and Russ's hands. You have no questions to answer. No one's going to question you. The truth of the matter is, Bill, they fumbled twice on the one yard line. They had 12 penalties. They were 6 points. Despite being in the red zone four times, there's a lot of reasons they lost that game. They put up over 400 yards. I don't think Russ looked terrible, but I hear you on your point of like, everyone's response being like, wow, they just got Russell Wilson thinking this is 2016 Russell Wilson. I was like, as you're talking, I'm racking my brain. There's been a few of them. I'm making like Albert Pujols getting the giant deal from like the angels, right? Yeah, I was thinking MBA. It's almost like those NBA trades where you get the NBA star who's like 32. Right, like a loser. It's like, hey, you see? I'm trading Chris Webber for Mitch Richmond. Yes, but what version of Mitch Richmond am I getting, right? That's a good example. Yeah, Mitch Richmond. I would be really concerned if I was a Broncos fan. Really? I feel like I feel like you wash that game away. That was week one and a weird environment with crazy shit happening. And you say, okay, week two, we gotta use it. I get it, but if rust was still that guy, that's like a Kaiser soze. I'm burning down the house game. And he just didn't look like that. I didn't think he to me, he looked exactly like you looked at last year, maybe it'll flip. I don't know, but I'm worried anyway, all the stuff they gave up and they guaranteed contract. And I'm not positive. He's a sure thing. So there's a little new owner syndrome. So that's two mistakes. Third one, the home run swing mistake. We don't have to litigate the Lance trade again. But they gave up the 13th pick in 21. First, in 22 and 23, and a third and 22, for a guy that I have no idea if he's good. I mean, I'm going to give him benefit of the doubt for how bad the weather was and all that stuff, but at the same time. Maybe. I mean, the other guy maybe. Right, the other guy did at the end. I don't think either guy was that great in the game, but I don't know. All of this, there's so many red flags. The fact that they kept Jimmy G, the fact that okay, what's the bigger mistake though? What's the bigger mistake? The trade itself, which is whatever, or the doubling down and without him winning the job saying, he's our guy, no matter what, even though Jimmy just took you to the, because we've been down that road. I mean, this is like heath schuler's the pick by the Redskins, and no matter what, they're starting him, even though Gus fort outplayed him every single time. And the opposite of this would be like, Brady, getting The Rock from Belichick and being like, I don't care about where you were drafted and what we're paying Bledsoe. You give the ball to the guy and the niners just gifted Trey and look, Trey might be the better quarterback. It was still very early, but for him to get it out of the gates and it to be a no brainer, even though Jimmy's still under contract at the time for 25 million and just took him to NFC championship game was a wild decision. That might be the mistake. Maybe you let Trey win that job or you go to Trey, but to say in February, Trey Lance is our guy. It's RG three and cousins or the opposite being Russell Wilson and Matt Flynn. Like Russell Wilson won that job and was a third round pick and Pete had the confidence to say, gosh, I got to give it to the best man. Trey Lance kind of given this job and I'm curious to see how much never works in football. It doesn't. It just does the team knows. Yeah, we were still on van and I were texting about Bryce young the other day during that game that I will be able to ask. Well, I was like, he reminds me of all the things I don't like about Kyler and Marcelo during the game was saying, the guys got incredible

"They should be very stout. It's more about making good decisions and it really it really came down to pocket presence. And you'd be better at this than than I playing with quarterbacks, you know, want to When a dude a quarterback can't get off the front side, You know he's going to wait for the front side, and it can't get to the back side and doesn't know exactly where everybody else and doesn't really doesn't really sense or feel the pass rush, or he sees ghosts. And that's really what it came down to. To me is not so much drew lock doesn't have a big arm and drew out doesn't have potential upside. It's that in the pocket drew lock just didn't manage the game. Well, he didn't get off. You know from from the front side of the back side quickly didn't know where everybody was. And he took hits. And was unaware sometimes from a protection standpoint, and that's part of being a young quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, Um, theoretically will just operate and keep them out of harm's way in in those situations, So that's the reason they went there and You know it's going to be complementary. They're they're going to have to play. You know? Good offense, Sidley. They're going to have to stay on schedule so that that defense can shine and really be great. Talking to Mark Schlereth, three time Super Bowl champion host of on one. Oh 43, the fan in Denver mark getting back to the Broncos or how I'm surprised by this because his defense is so widely imitated. But people are talking about Fangio's hot seat. Potentially, you were talking earlier about the offensive line and the Giants offensive line, and I think that has nothing to do with coaching them up to like Eric Flowers is doing fine. Now that he's away from the Giants, Andrew Thomas is struggling. These high draft picks and everything, but they're going up against that Fangio defense. And yet Fangio is is on the hot seat, apparently without a great quarterback. How hot should his seat B. You know, I think it should be hot. I mean, I think the the bottom line is often times and we joke around here in Denver, but it's not really a joke. You know Jokes are jokes are always funny, because there's some partial truth to them right and There are big fans. You is really the coach of the defence. Um, you know, he kept the play calling duties on the defensive side of the ball after practice to ask you about, you know, offensive things. I don't know. I was watching the defense will have to go back and watch the film right? Um, there's there's some things that just don't seem, um they just don't seem like like head coach material. And I always say this about head coaches. You know, I travel around the league as you guys know for Fox and calling games and talking to head coaches all the time. There are guys regardless of their knowledge of exes and ohs. There are guys that are just good managers. They do a great job of coaching coaches and letting the players kind of play and understanding, strengths and weaknesses and putting guys in positions. To maximize strengths and minimize weaknesses. And they have this kind of overall CEO type of view of their football team, and they let their coaches coach and I think I think sometimes you know, even as an offensive play, call or defensive play call, you get so entrenched in that way of thinking that you lose sight of some of the management parts of the game on Sundays, and that really is where Vic has struggled in the management section of the Games, timeouts. You know, he saves time outs like he can sell them on eBay. And you know, you gotta at some point you got to be. You've got to use them, you know, and you've gotta strategize. And so that's been a real issue. And then obviously you know when you're five and 11 and what were they 79, 5 and 11 under big banjo only two years and and you haven't produced even on the defensive side. You were like 27 28th in the league last year, and I understand you had a bunch of injuries, but The bottom line. None of it has been very good. So far, so yeah. And you've never won a game. You're O n seven in September and you're Turner over differential is minus eight. You've turned it over 10 times under his Two alleging and you've only taken the ball away twice. Um, you're gonna be on the hot seat. There it is. Ladies and gentlemen, the Great Mark Schlereth. Mark. Thanks. A million for coming on. By the way, Long time. Long time I know.

"The dodgers have lost a couple and the giants too. But if i were an nfl team staring down one of those teams in wildcard. I would feel not confident. Maybe i would maybe not feel confident. So there's that yeah well we will return to the raise. A little later on in a step last segment wanted to follow up on something. You sort of idly mused about when we were talking about mika cabrera's five hundred home run. You mentioned that he had hit his five hundred home runs off of three hundred forty six different pitchers which yep sounded like a lotta pictures. But it's kind of hard to tell his that a high ratio or low ratio. Not necessarily the sort of thing you can answer off the cuff as you are recording a podcast. Fortunately we have very smart and industrious listeners. Who are able to look these things up in motivated to look these things up so we got an email from erin who looked into this question. He says i'm trying to learn python. And i decided to mix this interest with my favorite podcast generate some compelling problems to solve and thanks to the amazing work at retro sheet dot org. I was able to lend a little insight into megs question. Miguel cabrera's pitcher to homerun ratio is point six nine going back to nineteen fifteen. The average pitcher to home run ratio for all players is point seven one. That's calculated by taking the sum of unique pitchers for each player in the set divided by the sum of runs for each player in the set. So he's close to that pace but erin says. I thought this list is likely skewed by many players with just a few home runs after all every time someone hits a home run against a unique pitcher. They increase the chances that their next home run. We'll come against a pitcher. They have already taken deep breaking down the pitcher to home ratio in one hundred homerun segments shows a predictable trend. More home runs lower pitcher to home run ratio. The five hundred homer club has an average ratio of point. Four eight so for someone who homered as much. As miguel cabrera he has hit homers against a comparatively large number of pitchers. So if you have fewer than a hundred career homers over the course of baseball history. Aaron finds that the average pitcher to hoberman ratio is point eight two but if you have say seven hundred plus home runs and it's a small group than the average ratio is point five one however aaron rights. While doing this research i also found it fund that the player with the most home runs without touching up the same pitcher twice is roberto perez with forty six metre sheet database doesn't include twenty twenty one games and roberto has homered six times this year. Aaron didn't check to see if he has a duplicate so far. If so keith. Lockhart will own that distinction with forty four. He shared that number with tucker barnhart heading into the twenty twenty one season but he has not checked tucker barnhart seven homers this year. Aaron says he also wondered who has taken the most pitchers deep and as you would expect. It is usual suspects. Barry bonds four hundred forty nine albert pujols four hundred. Twenty eight and alex rodriguez four hundred twenty two anti-pc showed his work in linked to it. As i will. However i had a follow up for erin i said there must be an era effect right because miguel cabrera's ratio is high. Forty five hundred homer guy. He has homers against a comparatively large number of pitchers because they're so many pitchers used per game. Think and so. Many pitchers used per season these days. And they're just more teams and everything. I mean if you were playing in an era where there were like sixteen teams. And all of the starters were pitching complete games all the time right. Then you expect that your ratio would be different from today where there thirty teams and you're facing multiple pitchers per game. So i asked him if he could check how the career ratios vary by career. Start date and he has looked into that and i will link to what he found there. Basically when you adjust for the era effect. Miguel cabrera's pitcher to run ratio is pretty normal especially if you look at the number of home runs he has hit so if you just for both how many homers he is hit and when he is hit them he is actually not that unusual. I mentioned that his ratio is point. Six nine well. The average ratio for players who debuted in the pd era and have three hundred or more homers is point seven so he has right there and for players who debuted post pd era and have three hundred plus homers. The average is point seven four so again it pretty much tracks. He has pretty much average. It was hard to tell at the time but yeah it sort of fits and he has a breakdown by when they debuted. So if you debuted say in the live ball era as he calls it. Nineteen twenty to nineteen forty one than the average ratio was like point six. That's for all players league wide expansion era nineteen sixty one to seventy six. It was point six one free agency era seventy seven to ninety three. It climbs two point seven five. Pd era which he's defending is ninety. Four to two thousand five than its point. Eight one and now post. Pd era two thousand six to present. The average ratio is point eight six. So it's a lot different from how it used to be but cabrera Kind of what you would expect if you do all of that. Research that aired did presented to us so thanks to him for that. Thanks to him and surrey mega. You're not special at all just some just some games with five hundred home. Yup so that was sort of step last but it was not actually the stat blessed. But thank you for that anyway. Erin so just the less thing before we get to some e mails. We talked about how the as had fallen behind the mariners in the al west and wild card races. You know who the as could use is frank sh- mundell i think if the as had frank swindell. Lp player of the week in new jersey native they probably would not be behind the mariners. Now and the as very recently did have freshmen. Tell but like everyone else said the world they did. That suspect that frank wendell was about to be one of the very best hitters in baseball over the past month or more so for those who have not followed the frank the pinks when del story he has powered the cubs to seven straight. Wins as we speak and he is done so in sort of historic fashion so according to espn stats and info. He is the first. Mlb player with a go ahead. Rbi in the sixth inning or later of four straight games over the past forty years so that sounds impressive. But if that's too many qualifiers for you then you can just look at french. Dell's stats for the cubs. Because he has now played thirty three games and had one hundred thirty three plate appearances for chicago. And he's hitting a cool three seventy four four twenty one six.

"Alonso becoming the second fastest in baseball history to reach 100 career home runs. Well, here's Nelson Cruz. Other end of the spectrum closer to the Albert Pujols, part of the spectrum 41 years old, the oldest in major league history to ever blast 30 homers in a season and boy was he on point in the race Big victory over the Red Sox on Tuesday night. 83 Dave Wills on the Rays Radio Network. Four for 52 home runs for RB and enough to make Kevin Cash grin as the race continue to hit the snot. Out of the ball, including Nelson Cruz. We added a very special hitter. That is certainly going to do his part to contribute to the offense of the runs. But when you add another when you add an elite bat like that in the lineup, um Everybody else around. You probably sees some better pitches to hit because everybody knows where he's sitting in the lineup. Obviously longevity and just being really, really good, really talented, uh, worked so hard we've seen now for a month and a half how he keeps his body and shape. It just takes care of himself ready to go. And you know it is his stats speak for themselves. Considering what the Rays have done since he joined the team and his numbers even to start out September. It's no doubt that Tampa's really enjoying the pop acquired from the Twins in late July is Kevin points out. He's hitting 3 75 with four homers in September alone. He's already scored. 11 runs with 10 RB to start the month and so here are the Rays in the stretch run, and Nelly is taking this seriously. They are now. 88 51. Tied for second most wins in baseball with the Dodgers, who are just a tick behind the Giants, who have 89. Then if you're keeping score at home, the only other team well, I suppose you could sort of count the Astros as part of that race. But as we get closer and closer to the end of the month and the end of the regular season, the Brewers also part of that race for best record in Major league baseball, they've got 85 wins. They returned the favour and shut out the Phillies with double digit runs last night, 855 to 1 to 4 to 27 Glad to have you with us on our hump show. What is now? Your Wednesday morning. Good morning to you if you missed it, Layla Fernandez, the Canadian team is who is taking the U. S. Open by storm is now into The semifinals. There's nobody left from the United States, so maybe you can cheer for Leila. This is right after she turned 19, which is 19 and two days, two days old, That's uh It's a lot of youthful enthusiasm and energy and the fire that we see on the court every time she gets out there, her first Grand Slam semifinal and the youngest to get that far in the women's bracket. At the US Open since Maria Sharapova in 2000 and five She was 18 years old. It's been pretty amazing to see what she's done so far. She's already knocked out previous champs Naomi Osaka, Angelique Kerber and then last night in the quarters against the number five seed Elina Svitolina, and so here she is, and everybody's learning her name, and she's figuring out how to take all of this limelight and attention in stride. The first few days. It was definitely a little bit hard, but like I said, I've been very lucky to have a great team around me. And I was very lucky to have doubles the next day to keep me grounded. And now I feel like I'm a little bit. I'm more used to it. So, like I said, I have a great team around me. Who helps me keeping my head a little bit leveled. And just think about my next mentioned not think about all the good things that are happening to me. Yes, you got to keep focused. Of course. I mean, that's a huge thing, And we've talked about it a little bit with Novak Djokovic and the fact that he has to stay focused on the task at hand. But it's great that the crowd is behind her as well. They really adopted her as their favorite at Arthur Ashe Stadium, And afterwards she had a conversation with her dad, and it's great to be able to have your family there and certainly at 19 when you're in uncharted waters. That's huge. I called him right after the match when I was in the when I went to the locker room, and he honestly told me that I put him through hell and back, but this match, but he's very happy for me. And, uh, he's glad that I was able to fight for every point, and that I I deserve this one. And I just keep working. Enjoy this win today and tomorrow we'll go back to work US Open semi final She is right now not only part of this youth movement that's taking over at Flushing Meadows in Queens. But it's also got a megawatt smile that you really can't help but just be drawn to her and and be excited for her. The fire that she brings to the court is awesome. The fist palms and the yells and the emotion 19 years old and this is what we love about sports right from the category. If you can't make this stuff up the stuff that we never saw it coming. After hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS Sports Radio I mentioned that wanted to throw in a little bit more from the quarterbacks Well, Tom Brady and Dak Prescott are getting ready, of course to step on the field Thursday. Dac we have not seen since week five of last year, but we know he is jumping at the bit to be part of the season opener, and they call it a huge opportunity. Mike McCarthy echoes that and his excitement for what's to come in the next few hours. It's a great game. We talked about some of the team meeting today. Just you know how unfortunate we all are to be part of it on whatever level most importantly, the players, I mean the the opportunity to to play in front of a stadium. That's there to cheer the competition. Yes. For sure that hostile atmosphere, and yet it represents having that intensity and that energy back in the stands Now he is among the many who are praising Tom Brady, part of the Super Bowl champions, and now going into I don't know his 75th season as a starting quarterback in the NFL. Was definitely a youthfulness that has to exist to be successful, and I think he's in a As good as an example forever was ever was one to come. That's played the game or any support. Of what you need to to go about it and, um, and I think it's you know, he exudes that with every time he lines up so very consistent. I think it's a big part of his continued success. I just want to play it a really high level for our team, and I think they're counting on me to play really well to play on the type of football and capable of so I think just for me, it's going to be about Kind of trying to be the great.

College football is back. U C L A taking down LSC with the Rose Bowl. How about that huge moment for the Pac 12 Merce Bruins taking care of business against Eddie? Oh, and the Tigers That was really cool to see and the Pac 12 needed it, man. The Pac 12 needed it bad because Montana upset Washington. The ranked Washington Huskies. I believe they were the fifth ranked team to lose to an FCS opponent dating back to like 2007. When Michigan felt the Appalachian State in that iconic game that we will never forget Washington Now going down, it just I think it was the first one in five years. Fish North Dakota State beat like Iowa State or something five years ago, but Man. Great day for college football cow Also lost in Nevada. Stanford lost a Kansas State yesterday. So a tough day for the Pac 12 and in many regards, but U C L A looking like a top contender in the Pac 12 South for sure. And we will continue to keep our eyes on that. This is the last Sunday without NFL football, and I'm certainly as a red zone junkie. I'm thrilled that the NFL will be back here last Sunday without football until I think Presidents Day weekend of the weekend after this year with the extension of the sea. In 17 games now, so I am very much looking forward to talking football with you here on these airwaves in the coming weeks specifically 40 Niners quarterback situation so much to unpack in that regard, but so much you're preparing for today. In terms of this Giants Dodgers matchup like I mentioned early in the show 18 games in the books between these two tides. This season nine and nine, and the margin of error between these two sides has been also thin. The Giants winning several games late on, you know like a Will Smith stepping off the first base bag, Darren Ruff's check swing Cody Bellinger air mailing a ball over the third base bag at Oracle Park earlier this season. The Dodgers have also beat the Giants and narrow fashion A few times. Tyler Rogers had some tough moments. Early in the year at Dodger Stadium. Given up that walk off home run to Will Smith nearly gave up a walk off to Albert Pujols, who might talking to me that made that catch so Already just a tremendous season for this rivalry. Both teams head into Sunday night baseball on ESPN and can be are at 86 50, and it's been. It's been a lot of fun to watch. It's been really cool. And these these games as a writer have taken a toll on me. Because a little bit about my writing process. I usually start, you know. Putting my game story together. We've got to have the game story published by the final out. I usually start putting it together around the seventh inning. And with these Giants Dodgers games, I've almost either had to rewrite everything or just wait until the top of the ninth to just, you know, get ready to go and get everything down on the papers that we we have something to present to readers the final out, But these two teams have played so many games have been decided by inches and it's been It's been dramatic. It's been fun. It's been intense. There's no reason to expect that Sunday night should be any Different Walker Buehler, Cy Young candidate going for the Dodgers, and one thing that I want to get into want to hear your perspective on it. We can be our is the number second executive bullpen day for the San Francisco Giants Gabe Kapler going with Dominic Leone and as I mentioned, the reason the Giants manager is going with the right hander is likely because he anticipates trade Turner, Mookie Betts and Justin Turner and three of the top four spots. In that lineup. Max Muncy has hit second for Dave Roberts Dodgers team and so it's important to have a right hander on the mountain neutralize that part of the Dodger lineup. The Giants expected They will have most of their top bullpen arms fresh Tony Watson able to go today. Tyler Rogers able to go today, Jake McGee able to go today after all of those guys were down on Saturday night, so the Giants had a bit of a deficit there against Julio Urias having to rely on Sammy Long, Jose Quintana, Kayla Barrier. John Bravia. Some of the guys at the back end of that bullpen depth compared to what you would consider the back end of the actual bullpen and Leone Rogers. And McGee and I received a lot of questions a lot of texts as well about why the Giants aren't digging into their minor league pitching depth and bringing up a starter from Triple A or double A And, quite frankly, the reason is no one's ready. You look at this giant farm system and the top pitchers in the system Right now, The top pitchers in 2021 have been Ryan Murphy, who's terror it up, fifth round draft pick in 2020. He's up at high a Eugene throwing the ball extremely well. And Kyle Harrison, who was last year, pitching for the daily South Spartans out and conquered, he was bought out of his UCL. A commitment by the China third Round draft pick in 2020 High School Kid has had a really good year with the San Jose Giants. We're gonna get into their development with Marc de Lucchi around 11 30 this morning when we talked Its prospects. But the Giants don't really have guys at the top of the farm system they sent Matt Frisbee. Spring training invitee from double A to Triple A during the first half of the season, thought that he might be able to help this Giants team didn't happen. He got sent back to double a Sean Jelly recently got the promotion 2018 2nd round draft pick out of Kentucky. He recently moved from double A to Triple A, but he's not missing bats right now, and when you're not missing bats when you're not generating strikeouts and whiffs, it's difficult to bring a guy like that up to the major league level in the midst of a pennant race. You know the other guys the Giants had in Camp Tristen back. Out of Stanford. He was someone who the Giants thought might be able to help them at the end of the season, dealt with an injury this year and just hasn't pitched a whole lot and then Kywe. Tang was the other right hander who was in camp, but he was probably behind a map for his be Sean Jelly and interesting back. So back in spring training. Back in Scottsdale, Gabe Kapler sat down and said, If the Giants go through and burn their top 678 options they're going to need 9 10, 11 12 and those four guys to be able to help them at the end of the season and their development trajectories just haven't played out in a way where the Giants can rely on them. So when you've got a situation like the Giants do this week where Johnny Cueto needs to go on the I l After that Tuesday, start with the right elbow strain when Alex would test positive for Covid 19 still symptomatic. As of Saturday, running a fever got body aches and chills. Not gonna be able to help the Giants for at least another week. Potentially more. You have a decision to make. The decision is, Do you go to triple A and bring up a Scott Kazmir or Logan? Andrew Sick or a Matt Shoemaker, who none of those three guys, All of them have majorly experience. But none of those three guys have thrown the ball particularly well for the river cats this year in the PCL, or do you rely on a bullpen that is ranked At or near the top of the major leagues in e. R. A throughout this season to cover nine innings against a really difficult Dodgers lineup, and I don't think it was much of a decision for the Giants to make here. I don't think that Farhan Zaidi and Scott Harrison gave Catherine the coaching staff. We're overthinking it too much and saying, Hey, let's give Sean Jelly a shot here. He's not ready. I don't think they were sitting there, saying Matt Shoemaker had one good start out of three at Triple A Sacramento. He can give us four or five innings. Bring him up. I don't think that that was really a part of the calculation here. The Giants essentially are using bullpen games out of necessity. This is not something that any team wants to do..

The statement from his agent was was pretty funny. It's um If you didn't see the statement. He basically laid out like he wants that You want to trade? I've been working in cooperation with the Patriots behind the scenes to put a plan in place to allow, uh, Nikki all to thrive in New England. Through two seasons. He has 86 targets, which obviously hasn't met the expectations the Patriots and the keel. Had when they drafted a dominant downfield threat who was virtually unstoppable at the point of attack in college. We should all have agents that that right things like that on our behalf, you know, imagine you write a letter to somebody. You you, You know your boss and like Well, it's really too bad. It hasn't gone too well because this person is the greatest worker, an employee that's ever lived. To kill Harry drafted a downfield threat was virtually unstoppable at the point of attack in college. But they want a fresh start formally requesting a trade on behalf of the client, so he's out. I'm not sure how much he was in the mix anyway. With the receivers they signed with the tight ends, they added. We'll see. Forgettable career to this point, and, uh, looking for a fresh start?.

"It's so funny that the Angels, a team that decided to sign shareholder Shohei Otani, because they're an American League team, because you can pitch them once a week, and then I'll pay. We're gonna play him in the field or D h from the rest of the time. I really have wondered at what point do we say? Just let this guy go Maybe he can play outfield. I know they don't want to get him hurt, but he's been only a picture in a D. H. And he's had Tommy John surgery, you know? Why don't you let him go? Why don't you take the bubble wrap off and see what he can do in the outfield. Let him play the entirety of a game. I'm not saying he's got a. He's got to stay in the game after he pitches, though, when he does, it helps your line about, especially if you don't have my trout to step in and and sort of carry some of this lineup. He does lead the league in home runs, which is why I think you have to leave him out there, right. You can't yank him. I mean, what I'm saying here is is you change the way you manage his outing as a pitcher, Because if you pull them as a pitcher, you've got to pull them as a hitter, and now you end up with the situation. The Angels were in yesterday where they've got to deal with a picture spot. Which is not, I mean, Not terrible baseball's been dealing with having to have a picture hit for 150 years. What I'm getting at, though, is not every one of those pictures is leading the league in home runs, so if you have an opportunity to keep that guy in there You should probably do so we've got a hit on another element of this game or two more elements in this game on the other side of my taxman element has been sort of a focal point over the last week or so just because he has not been hitting. I mean, he hasn't been hitting for longer than that. When he's robbing home runs, and he's taken. He's hitting Grand Slams in Texas and taking balls away from Albert Pujols and Juan Soto. I think we're feeling a little bit better about it. He's up there, and he isn't It started like a week and he's over five with five strikeouts. You really start scratching your chin going. You know, you made the decision to keep this guy over LaMonte Wade and I know this guy is pressing a little bit. I know this guy is a guy Far on loves. They think he's a professional put together. A big league at bat can play great defense. He saved the Giants multiple times this year. He was difficult to watch early in the game. And then the way baseball goes man. 13th inning redemption for Mike Stockman. We'll get into that as well as the Angels. Run out of catchers.

Certainly hope the best for Travis Shaw, now ready to go and resume action here with runners at 1st and 2nd, a run in the Reds are leading it. 3 to 1 and Jesse Winker is at the plate. He's hit already for Winker infield single. Now he swings the first pitch and chops it foul. Off the front of the Reds first base dugout, count his own one. Jace Peterson at second base. Louise Aureus moved from second base to third. Here's the Oh one. And Winker takes down and away. The count is even one ball and one strike. Trying to figure out the answer to our Cincinnati Bell trivia question, who is the only other player besides Ken Griffey Jr in the 600 home run club? With 200 or more home runs with two separate teams pitched down and away. And one Barry Bonds. Albert Pujols, Sir Alex Rodriguez. But I had my first instinct would be Albert, who holds Um not very bonds, huh? No, not very. He didn't. He didn't hit that many home runs in Pittsburgh. Here's the 21. Baker chops it foul and I don't think I know Alex played a long time in Seattle, but I don't know that he had 200 there. I could be totally wrong. Definitely didn't have 200 in Texas, right? He was not there long enough. So I'm going to go with the Albert prove okay? Revisit that In the fourth inning and see how you did. 1st and 2nd base, one man out two and two on Winker. Anderson's pitch and Winker again. Chops it foul up the first base line. Still two and two. If you're listening tonight in your car truck radio, please remember to buckle your safety belt. This message brought to you by the Ohio Department of Public Safety. If you're not buckled up, what's holding you back at Two on one out, left hander turns it lose the 22 pitch taken down and away now full calendar. I mentioned this in the first inning and I'll say it again. Everything right now is going the Reds away From an offensive standpoint, every bounce has gone their way. And you've got to make it count and you've got to put runs on the board, especially early in this ballgame, 32 pitch and Winker swing since the slicing line drive, sinking quickly into left center Bradley Jr comes racing in and makes the running catch. And back to second base scrambling as Vladimir Gutierrez on the fly out by Winker. That was slicing toward left and sinking on Bradley Jr and he was still able to run it down. Tell you, Vladimir Gutierrez is awfully fortunate. Because I'm sure that where he has been playing There are few outfielders that can cover ground like Jackie Bradley Jr. I'm.
