"Friedman, Andrew Friedman, that brings up for me, Al Gore's frog and water. That's you know, Warming. So slowly that it doesn't make the frog jump out of the pot. Yeah, Except right now we're warming so quickly that that that there are people around the world who are jumping out of the pond and moving. Um, but it really struck me what she said, because People are anxious People do see it. Um, they don't see it everywhere. This this both of the focus groups. Um, most recently, uh, showed that not everybody responded by saying You know, extreme weather is getting worse where they are more people did perceive it globally that they're hearing about more, um natural disasters, extreme weather, and it's globally. But you know it takes to me. It kind of took until people in the focus groups knew somebody affected by one of these disasters for them to really kind of get it. I'm somebody need somebody in the in the heat wave in the northwest. Somebody knew somebody who had to evacuate to a wildfire in California. Another person had a parent who had to evacuate because of the hurricane in Florida. And they were worried about how many hurricanes they had last year. Um so yeah, you know, people are like that are risk perception is off..

"1000 FM 97 7 From earlier today. Here's Como's Taylor Vance ICE Have scientists underestimated how much sea levels could rise because of climate change As Andrew Friedman reports in The Washington Post a new study from a group of British universities flying's the Earth is losing 1.2 trillion tons of ice. Every year, and Andrew joins us on the coma. Nuesslein. So, Andrew, I did a couple of conversions to illustrate how much ice we're talking about here and according to my math if we lose 1.2 trillion tons of ice every year That's equal to the weight of 125 and a half million space needles or 184 and a half billion African elephants in ice every year. How much more ice loss is that than we previously thought? Well, we didn't expect the Arctic ice sheet and Greenland ice sheet to destabilized the extent that it has I can't give you a precise estimate of how much higher it is. Right now I can tell you is if you look at the range of what the U. N each governmental panel on climate change has been predicting We're at the severe upper and that range at which you know things are increasing. Year by year, a decade by decade. Here in Washington, you we see cities and counties doing shoreline improvement projects to account for rising seas. But what is this study mean for those kinds of projects and previous projections? Yes, really. The study was described me. So there's two studies. There's one that looked at Greenland and how the issues you're chewing away at the ice that ends in the in the sea. Another unrealistic global I saw so we come. It took them both together and said, Okay, we have all this ice floes happening around the world. And now there's even more reason to think that both Greenland's And the dark there could be destabilized three ocean melting. On.

What to expect from NOAA under the Biden administration

"Focus on weather. Forecasting and climate science is likely to be a high priority under president biden and it begins with staffing at the top washington post capital weather gangs. Andrew friedman wrote about the possible scenarios for noah. Hi andrew welcome to climate cast off. Let's talk about the biden cabinet appointments so far one thing that jumps out at me andrew. There are so many with climate expertise and focused john. Kerry as climates are on the national security council. pete buttigieg at transportation jennifer granholm at energy. What do you make of these leaders. Strong climate focus. It doesn't look like an accident to me. Yeah no really. The administration is approaching an all hands on deck strategy for climate change rather than putting that just in the hands of the epa administrator and maybe the energy secretary they're putting that everywhere so you heard their nominee janet yellen for treasury secretary mentioned climate change in her interest speech Also the national economic council chair of brian niece has a significant climate experience. This is really going to cross pollinate the government agencies foreign wide. Honey you think. The new noah leadership will be substantially different than it. Is today you know. The noah leadership under president trump has been competent jacobs who has a phd and is a meteorologist by background. Really knows that issue in really knows the agency warehouse but he was hamstrung and didn't even have the ability to send an all hands email without running it by political appointees at the department of commerce. He wasn't able to pick his top staff including chief-of-staff so really what you're going to see is a administration that thinks the real while. Okay we're going to have this person as administrator what do they need to support them. In these other several roles that are politically appointed. How will climate change science and communications. Be different. i think there's going to be a much greater role They're gonna put more of an emphasis on the national climate assessment which has been something that the trump administration tried to walk away from and then has tried to interfere with. So it's gonna be much more of noah in the lead when it comes to scientific integrity andrew. We all remember sharpie gate. When president trump doctored a hurricane map how will the biden administration sharpie proof noah they need to make some changes to the scientific integrity policy. Because what happened was that episode was judged to have violated their scientific integrity policy but they were absolutely no consequences for it because it doesn't apply to the department of commerce. It applies only to noah so the department of commerce leadership told no they had issued a statement disavowing. they're actually accurate forecast and They weren't punished or so they're going to have to make some changes also though i think whoever is brought in noah leadership is going to come and on day one knowing that they have some morale issues and knowing that the half to reassure people about the scientific integrity of the agency on the premium placed on sound science andrew friedman with washington post capital weather. Gang for sharing your perspective on climate casts. Today thank you for having me.

MLB investigating after Justin Turner ‘refused to comply’ with officials during Los Angeles Dodgers celebration

"To talk about. Ah, what happened to Justin Turner? He was pulled in the eighth inning of the game last night because of a positive Covad test. What did the Dodgers know? And when did they know it? Yeah, So it's It's a a interesting situation. The way that is kind of shaken out is the players were getting tested daily while they were in the postseason bubble. In Turner's test on Monday, producing inconclusive result, which MLB was alerted to during Game six. And so they asked the lab in Utah to expedite The test results on the sample he provided Tuesday. And that is the one that then came back positive as soon as they will be found out. They relate it to Andrew Friedman of the Dodgersfront office, who then pass the message along to Dave Roberts. That You know? Hey, Justin Turner has to come out of this game right away. And it's the exact timing isn't clear. You know, they weren't gonna necessarily stop The game. If there was, you know, one or two outs in the seventh inning, but obviously we saw you know when the ending kind of turned over for the start of the eighth, he was replaced by Edwin Rios. We're getting a statement today but by major league baseball, by the way, this is according to the times that they are investigating. Now, Turner Um MLB, saying that that he quote emphatically refused to comply. When league security raise the matter to him about returning to the field to celebrate. We saw pictures of him. We saw him in a mask, and then we saw him without a mask. We saw him with his wife and the trophy. So the investigation, I guess is beginning in Major League baseball. We've seen that there have been no additional positive tests have come back among Dodgers or raise players. More testing is scheduled For today. And in the coming days.

"How are you ever going to get through a season? Well, apparently, those test came in inconclusive from Monday. So they tested him again or they ran the samples they had from the the test on Tuesday, and they came back conclusive as a positive test. It wasn't a false negative. It was inconclusive on the Monday sample. The Tuesday sample came back positive, which is why they pulled them now that the Dodgers are hiding behind, and this is, what's what's kind of a crock of Wolf. It's a crock about that is that after the game, Andrew Friedman President of baseball up for the Dodgers, and I just watch this press conference. I gotta tell you Giants fans you wantto get the covert thing is not funny. What is really funny is that the Dodgers now have to deal with a situation that is not related to the World Series whatsoever. Andrew Friedman sits down at the podium. Huge smile on his face is immediately given his thoughts and his takes on You know what a great move it was to get Mookie Betts and how fantastic it was to win a world Siri's and how much they overcame to get 43 wins this season. Yeah. You know how difficult it was and what a tough year it's been for the country and yada, yada yada and then within about 5 to 7 minutes of his press conference. He's gotta answer Bullet after bullet after bullet after bullet after bullet about why Justin Turner was allowed on the field about what the optics are, and he really doesn't have a straight answer. He basically tells you Yeah, well, he was a huge part of this team and he's a free agent. We don't know what the future holds, so nobody was going to stop him from getting back out there even after he was told the quarantine. There are 11,000 people in the stands, many of whom are your fans? There's a clubhouse group of people who are working at this ballpark, and I know everybody's been tested, and there's the contact tracing thing, and they had to go back to the hotel after the game, and all the Dodgers were immediately tested. I'm waiting to see this is not done. I'm going to see if there are more Dodgers. You come out positive today, Which is not something you hope for. This has nothing to do with that. This is just more about how this thing was handled after the game and how irresponsible this was because now this looks bad for going towards next season, Right? When we start looking at next year was all of this. Like this was the concern coming in right is that you're not putting people and individuals in a situation where they Can make the call for themselves whether or not they're going to follow the protocols that we saw Mike Levinger that ship out of Cleveland because of Alps that they were exactly section and my clever remember trying to leave. Their hotel room to go out when they were on the road, and they made Klinger like drive back to Cleveland. Then they shipped about to San Diego where he didn't have to marry. Willie wasn't healthy for the post season or not for the entirety of it at least, But this is an issue. I mean, if we get into a situation now where you've got to follow the rules unless there's a championship to be had Then you know a He wasn't just in a bubble with people who were in the bubble. There were fans in the stands their family members of some of these players. That are at these games. So you know for the report, basically, not from Friedman is that well? Justin Turner really wanted to take a photo with the trophy. It wasn't just the trophy there photographers around their staff members around their groundskeepers around. He then sits next to people on the field, and Friedman claims that he wasn't out there without a mask their photos showing him out there. There's video showing him out there without a mask is high 500 hugging his teammates, and they could say, Well, he was already in the same airspace is them not everybody. And just because he was that doesn't make it. Okay? We've Them telling us that we could only do Thanksgiving with three different families. If you're going to get together and you got to do it on a patio or outdoors, spending two hours inside of Ah, dugout together or five hours, or as long as you were in the clubhouse before the game is not gonna limit that spread. So if there's any saving grace for Giants fans today, it's that the number one story about the Dodger World Series. Is not about the Dodger words World series and I imagine.

"Ned Colletti. Nice enough to join us on the Tolbert, Kruger and Brooke. Show it that it is great to connect with you once again, sir. How are you? I'm doing good, gentlemen. Thank you for having me on Thank you for coming on. Let's just start with the obvious and go from there. Your thoughts on this Siri's What do you like? Who do you like in? If you are kind enough about a prediction that well for me that you like the Dodgers will be hard for a lot of people that live in Florida. Not like that. Should be good. I mean, if this will be the best team that doctors have played all year, I think that the regular season was kind of an exercise and try to get through 60 games and there were 43 17. Postseason start. Think they settle Milwaukee and I was goingto amusing Run San Diego a little bit tougher. Atlanta Obviously, ah, lot tougher. But when you play the Dodgers, you cannot. You cannot make a mistake. You cannot. You cannot give them four outside inning. You have to run the bases really smartly. Atlanta struggle with that Every one has thrown a third base and Matter of a game and a half. And you've got to be able to pitch Knight. You cannot pit six or seven and hope that you can steal an inning here still ending there. It's almost impossible to do. The other side camp. But you know, the offense is a little bit little bit er curious. Think their top two guys today in Atlanta for nine further last 76. They're clean. A pitcher, I think is three for 15. What? Nine K's with runners in scoring position, so they have an unconventional lineup. World serious Wass, but they do pitch. And they've got a lot of good arms and you're going to see probably unconventional usage of teams pitching set, depending on got three starters lined up, but That doesn't necessarily mean you're going to see much more than maybe once, maybe twice around the line, but should be interesting should be good. I had good to talk to you again. And you know, Andrew Friedman does he has? Would you say he's had mortar do with Tampa or the Dodgers being in this World Series? I mean, he's obviously front and center on on both these organizations. What's he like? Why? What's you know? Why's he so good? What's the key to Friedman? Well, he's you know, he's a smart guy to begin with, and he's really hey loves the sport, and he really has studied for a long time in a a A T beginning, at least in a different way than most people would look at it Now. Most teams look at it the way he looks at it. But it's quite the accomplishment to have two teams that one that you you helped build some extent that's in the World Series with a payroll that is probably less than what he's paying Mookie Betts and Clayton Kershaw this year. And then be able to continue the Dodgers rain, eight straight divisions and three out of four years in the World Series. That's hard to do with the giant head really hard to win three out of five. Not quite equally A star but also very, very hard to get to the fall Classic three out of four years. I mean, it's It's not easy. It's not easy winning. I guess people need to lose a little bit after they've want to realize the preciousness of the victory. What he's done. He's done. Great work, tremendous work. And that do you think we'll see the Rays run little bit during this? Siri's? I think you'll see the Rays do everything they can possibly do to get every edge they can. I think that's how they won 40 games This year. They played in a A tougher division than the Dodgers dead. Dad has 1 43 playing Indiana West. They want 40. Cleaning the Onda. Toronto had a prevision year. You've got the Yankees, who had Ah, obviously a really good year in Baltimore Course in Boston struggled, but They play and also played against the NL East in their in their interleague play, so They've won a lot of games and I think they win it by really taken every margin they can and capitalize about whether it's a secondary lead, whether it's really your cut offs and realize whether it's really playing. Almost perfect defense. That's how they win. They win the old fashioned way, really kind of pitching and defense, and that's not analytical as much as it's in the in the history of the game and the foundation of the sport. Macon pitch and they can play defense in the offense. Little bit little bit unconventional for the team on the floor Classic. I think Houston may have a batting ever 60 points, aren't they? The Yankees outscored him. Kostic continue to win like that, But they do play a fundamentally sound as anything the doctors have seen a day. I think they'll run. I think that they may even try a little hit and run here and there. I think you're going to see excellent defense and you're going to see They're pictures match up against. I think the best lineup in baseball the Dodgers lineup. It's hitting and running, even legal any more. Can you do that? Well, it's like the unicorn. I mean, you can steal one. If you're not gonna get to see it because you're gonna hardly this's Tommy is not whether it's four months ago, I was taken aback. You know, my goodness. You know what? It's not like hitting and running or, you know, pitch outs or, you know, advancing the runner by hit the ball to the right side, especially in extra innings. You know, during the regular season Is that that it's illegal and bunting especially You just don't know if anybody can actually do it if they can physically actually performed the act if you are indeed as to do that, that's the big question..

What to Expect From the Dodgers and Rays in World Series

"And the World Series Tonight Clayton Kershaw in game one will tell the rubber for keys dodgers against Tyler glass. Now at the brand new home gonNA turn him in the grass for sure. We'll see if that glass will shatter or maybe the Raizal. Ceiling and win their first world series. It'll be played at the brand new home of the Texas Rangers Globe. Life Field expect about twelve thousand fans or so in attendance, and as you know, it has been a tale of two different halves for Clayton Kershaw, a regular season is dominant. A dominant gets postseason has certainly been that way obviously most of the dodger defenders we'll tell you when you take on somebody in the postseason, the quality competition certainly ratchets up. Game. Tonight pre game coverage ESPN, radio seven, thirty eastern, and every single night that we have the world series every ball every strike pre-game radio seven, thirty, eastern. I just. In the world series is not very good because like five or something five point four, zero in the world series, which is not going to bring it down tonight though we'll see we'll see. The rays have some guys you've never heard of but by this time tomorrow, that's certainly may change including the great rookie randy arose arena. If you see him tonight, he is one of the greatest splashes onto the postseason seen we have seen in many years. All right. So put your dodger cap your cap on literally, and figuratively, what do you think in tonight? One of the biggest moments in the managerial career Dave Roberts who's been feeling the strain I think since day once we first of all, it's going to start with the. Pitching Right Kershaw has to come out and he has to deal and we have to back him up and support him. We're runs the last several outings for him. We really haven't done anything with our bats for whatever reason that's the struggling part of it. If you remember several days ago I had mark to share on our show. Yeah we have more share on our show in in question I asked him about the pressure of a pitcher in those innings you get to the fifth sixth inning and you're still battling in a one. To one situation, we've gotTA give him some room to play with and I think it starts with him on the mound. But also, what are bats the guys like Bellenger even though something maybe a little wrong with his shoulder you gotta hope that a guy like that comes through in J. T. and seger stays hot that way we can get some runs and now kershaw could relax at the mile it pitch like he's capable of pitching can appreciate the fact that even though the dodgers of the second highest payroll and the rays have the twenty eighth highest payroll. At Twenty, eight, million dollars highest she'd player. D. appreciate the fact that they they are. They're frugal when she talked about their payroll all the time. That's the first thing he go to talk about the raise the payroll. We're saving money over here. You can still compass a championship. Would you can. You gotta tip your cap to them as a former pro athlete that's played in a variety of organizations with a variety of different approaches. The fact that they're at this stage for the second time in franchise history utilizing the exact same plan. Let's spend less and win more. Plan works to raise and Andrew Freeman certainly put plan in place for them and they've taken over and they've done well with it. The dodgers aren't doing tell Andrew Friedman is the guy that's leading the dodgers essentially got the job because he put the in such great position in his tenure there from two thousand, six to two, thousand, fourteen, four playoff appearances, two division titles, and now he wants to do as much as he can to make sure he can squash that raised team he built and the culture he formed

"I mean they they their past contractors side it had nothing to do with what Kerr calls careers going to be like twenty pages in the thirties so I understand and you just you know they they wanted the the highest AV they got that and they were able to stretch it out to nine I'm not sure who the Yankees were betting against with the Dodgers have gone that height doesn't matter he got the contract I mean you look back on Barry Zito's contract what would you pay that contract again to get his performance in Saint Louis in game five when you were down three games to one I thank you what I did for the majority of the contract he did live up to expectations but he did at them the most critical times to get your work she hurries so I think that's that's it you will see the Yankees are all about you know twenty seven time World Series champions or walk around the old stadium in the new stadium that's all they have everywhere you turn twenty seven time World Series champions them stuck on twenty seven for a while they want another one so you know good luck to him but you know that's that's sets off the domino effect that we thought the Dodgers apparently were very much in hand Gerrit Cole what they go that high that's just so unlike anything Andrew Friedman is John but you know they're they haven't won a World Series since eighty eight so they got a longer drought than the

rundown leaves the nationals and goes to the Dodgers I don't know how people feel about it but I think we'll see where we're rundown goes and also Josh Donaldson is in the mix as far as moving parts at third base but I I I I thought it before John Shea reddit and John Shea is connected John I think we talked about it before John shade wrote it but I when I reach a Hey write something he is connected and he was you know he wrote of the islands on the weekend in the sporting green and I it's a it's a possibility there's no guarantee that he's going to go this way there could be other shooters as well but we're looking at the possibility of bomb becoming a farm and and vision for the Dodgers the bums Dembo going back to New York Brooklyn days and a great rivalry in you know flam day flamingo John is a ten thirty I think one one thing Madison's got a look at here a little bit we know where do you want to pitch where do you want to go and then do you really want to do something that would I'm not gonna say turn Isher adversely affect or eliminate EMI southern members great giant but if he pitches for a number years with the Dodgers it will change the way he is remembered here the way Jeff Kent Erin one merit shellfish very briefly for the Dodgers but I remember in the Dodger blue I you know it's just it's just I don't know I mean how much do you factor in crossing that line with the fan base and you don't have a a statue of him I think his number will be retired he's not gonna make Cooperstown is not gonna be a hall of Famer but one thing I think he's got a factor in is just how will this affect you know how people remember me in San Francisco the rest of my life yeah no you you know the first thing I thought of you and I did an interview a number of years back during the show we're out it when the animal comes out one agree can we had run focus on on four I think a couple hours you live in he told us a story in which I can't remember at what point in his career he was but he was it wasn't like he was in high demand and I think it was but he was wearing in minor league baseball in Japan right is that what you're talking yeah and he had been obviously dropped by the giants and had a certain loyalty to the giants and Dodgers he told us and offered a contract and while he considered it he said he could not go and wear Dodger blue just if it was against it he just he was a giant he felt that he was giant he wasn't a play for the Dodgers while he considered it he said now and he cited the reason why is just he he he couldn't pitch for the Dodgers he had a hate hatred for the Dodgers any wouldn't pitch for the doctors are yeah I would pitch for doctors so he told us that so I'm sure there are certain guys look it's one thing to get traded to a certain spot it's another thing that if you don't have any other options but while the Yankees are probably out the Astros are out there the Braves of said they're still in even though the of Cole Hamels the twins have been talked about I mean there's a number of suitors now look if there's a huge financial gap between what the Dodgers again offer Madison Bumgarner and other teams then he should go there because it's gonna be a business and family decision but if it's close I don't know I don't know mass murder but I got to believe that if it's close he's not going maybe I'm wrong I know well last flam I don't know I I think it's something you have to factor in maybe it's a motivating did you know part of it to go there to shove it against fire hot he's a competitive guy I you know he he competes I don't know I don't know how well he knows Dave Roberts I don't think they overlapped Dave actually work TV was me and nine when he got sick and I think he was done on that they were teammates together but they may across passes spring training or some they obviously you know competing against each other one bomb was fiction against his chain with LA I don't know how that relationship would be who was there but I think there's a when you look at their rotation they clearly need medicine longer now do they need a more than rent to own I would think they do anchor shop the older my ada curious may down someone who would be what would he be at least year for number three maybe or for yes they manage to hate Madison Bumgarner is a question of how much they get a Pam now but they were in big on Gerrit Cole which is unlike them and they could they could get Madison Bumgarner for one third the price then look at somebody else yeah well it in Ken Rosenthal was the one who I saw the first say that they had flipped their their sights towards one or the other thing he then wrote this morning is that here's another possibility for the Dodgers ones that one that may make more sense and Bumgarner said sign rundown re sign right you both.

How the Dodgers' postseason nightmare scenario is becoming reality against Nationals

"One or the other excerpts that I thought was fascinating in relation to the dodgers in the passing story that was on ESPN DOT com this morning was that he spoke to National League executive early in the season when the nationals were under five hundred dodgers were running away with things in the west and he said the only thing that's to stop the dodgers is the nationals in a short series and it's now this nightmare is potentially can come to fruition right like so this is this is exactly the scenario that if your Andrew Friedman Yeah you didn't WanNa see because it's look clearly they've been to the world series now two years in a row and I think most people thought it was a foregone conclusion they'd get there but every team has kryptonite yeah right and great starting pitching in a short stories absolutely can be that for any team no matter how good you are right and think about how the dodgers have gotten to where they got like they've got a solid amount of Jong Stars I will say they got even more reputable element of just straight up rookies in guys who were not necessarily Super Oh you who won them a ton of games this year Georgia wasn't like they were just banging people out with veterans all year they had what three walk-offs in a row from at a stretch where he was incredible look at you look at other guys and you think man they essentially they got lucky because that's not you don't get lucky bringing up young players who are big league ready that's not look but the luck came in the fact that it worked out to their fortune almost every time to the point that they yet steamrolled again to the West you get into the playoffs that's not the same situation each wave staring down the face of a twenty one year old kid yeah all that August magic goes right out of the window at that tough it's a it's a sprint verse marathon versus a sprint and I think that there are different ways to prepare for that and sometimes you can't necessarily prepare for it absolutely not and I think that the dodgers concern here dodgers fans concerns here are valid and it's just one of those things where this might actually be the best dodger team they've had in this run right apt they're running into a buzzsaw of the nationals who are kind of they're not bad news bears picking the right at the right time but they're kind of cobbled together yeah let's be real you start at the manager position right Davey Martinez he got guy walks into a bar and he spells Angeles nobody knows who he is not at all not a soul but he's managed to put it together of criticism and I give him a lot of credit we've seen this in other sports particularly in the NFL remember when when Aaron Rodgers and the packers won the there were nine when the dealers want a super bowl team the giants were a team that I think at one ten games but they were a team that had kind of limped into one of those super bowl we saw it in hockey this year right blues came back from last I don't think it's that bad but the nationals our team for those of you who haven't been paying attention to how their season has developed if it were not for the bullpen people would think this team is excellent yeah they're open trade however their bullpen being so bad it's not just the worst in the playoffs yeah it's not just the worst in the big this year overall it's the worst the history of the playoffs in the modern era so if you think about that sure bullpen is a part of the team so you can't just delete it but it's not like this lineup is terrible it's not like that I don't know how to make plays they kick the ball around a lot don't get me wrong but they figured some of this stuff out so the nationals are very interesting oddity overall never mind how they match up with doctors

Mets "Fully Intent" On Trading Syndergaard

"Rival evaluators say they believe the mets are fully intent on dealing Noah syndergaard before the trade deadline quote. It's beyond listening said one. They want to move him so keep that in mind okay so noah syndergaard expected to move from the mets then maybe half an hour ago any Martino who covers the mets in New York for S. N. Y.. Says add the dodgers to the teams who have expressed interest in Noah syndergaard per sources. They have the players to get it done if they want. Now what's weird about that is syndergaard is a starting pitcher. He's cost controlled as for the next two seasons. You really don't need them this year but where he makes sense is next yes so here's the deal they've got kershaw obviously locked up for three more years. buehler's pre arbitration can't Amita they've got locked up but review is on a seventeen point nine million dollar qualifying offer he might win the Cy Young Award and he is going to be worth a lot on the open market. Richhill is thirty nine in a free agent very possible. They don't bring him back so it does make sense <hes> that they would lock up or trade for a guy who is locked up for multiple years and Noah syndergaard. They're looking at him. He's not had a great year but they're are probably looking at him and saying he's got great stuff. He's got electric stuff. He still has his fastball. He can be fixed. I like it if it doesn't prevent the dodgers for going after you to retain them over money. If money prevents them from retaining continue engine review the way he's been pitching this year that would bother me. Here's a here's the problem and he's on a one year deal which means he's an unrestricted free agent. I get it. I know how much again but you're not gonNA give him four years. He's GonNa give I'm four years. Maybe more than that somebody gave somebody gave Zach Cranky six and drank. He wasn't even coming off the CY. Young reused GONNA be coming off the site yet the dodgers that's the point he's coming off a CY young season. You're GonNa let money get in the way of giving you thirty. I always do two years old like I'm not being. I'm not paying a long gee. I know I'm GonNa let term get in the way somebody's GonNa give him four years and if I'm Andrew Friedman I'm not giving them for years. This is what held up cranky cranky. They said they would go five not six fix the diamondbacks went six and they let him walk would be very uncharacteristic for Andrew Friedman to give our guy four years. I mean okay and do it by and again. He's already thirty three years old and had some serious shoulder issue. I get that but he also has been their best pitcher this year. We've all seen throughout history that when he's healthy he's as talented as anybody. They have in the roster. Go ahead Greg. It was Kinda like when the Yank- when the Yankees signed signed to rookie Kuroda away from the dodgers he was pitching really well and he pitched really well for the Yankees afterwards too but it just was to a long time he was older. It just wasn't yeah they're playing and the other part of it is this you gotta pay an Andrew Friedman. I know because the one time I had him on the radio show he talked about it like you pay for future performance past performance and you have to kind of evaluate that when a guy is going to be thirty three to start the season next it's just me more just the idea of I feel like if you're the dodgers considering who you are as a franchise what your market value is the television situation that prevents a lot of your fans from actually seeing this team.

E coli is not tied with anyone specifically, but because he's such a domino that everybody seems like they might have to wait on. They're all connected. Yeah, the, the co Jenga puzzle. Yeah. The choir one is interesting, actually, I want to let people know that in ten minutes, Andrew Friedman will join us from the dodgers the dodgers. It's the exact halfway point of the season. It really. Yep. And they are on pace for one hundred ten key wins a hundred land wins their twelve games better at this point in the season than they were last halfway plow. So they are really today at fifty five wins. If they're on pace for a hundred and I couldn't have done that one hundred ten device to on a bowling green education, that, and pull allergy -cation, but look look at cow. Look at cow go.

"What's going on? I can't I don't know how to handle this might be a different roster. He's saying he doesn't see him on there. Move on the next time. Let's go back to garner. Yes. Now we're on a Dominique, I don't know how to happen started from the start from the bum. And now we're here at the bottom anyway, the point is, is that it was his it was his worst start ever against the dodgers. And it was a tough way to go. And you just got to wear it sometimes man. And what I was going to say about the dodgers, and you were talking about the and I'm going to go to the same had talked to my head coach. They are the swings. Dodgers are putting out there are. I am not. I mean so far to say that he thought maybe either somebody was tipping pitches or they were getting help. But I'm here to tell you I need your help here. Don't look at the dream team to dull. I need your help. Focus, focus, a baseball guy. Okay. This, I've never seen a team put swings one through nine out there. Like the dodgers are they are. I've never seen. There's no defense at all in their swings. There's no, I got fooled on that. There's no guessing there's there to cheating every swing and generally with a high degree of success. Okay. So I would counter that statement by asking which team or teams would you say are at the forefront of the analytics age in transitioning from the old school style of baseball to the were just going to hit home runs track. I mean, the raise and come to mind, European raise the as a lot of them, actually, I would say, the dodgers are right up near the front of the cutting edge of we're going to be an all power all bullpen all pitching or like we're gonna hear our team a new model a new. They start a pitcher who was great didn't get touched anyone three inning. Right. Right. This is this is kind of what they do. Now. They ran seven guys out there. Go with rich hill. They all swing for the fences. They all swing hard. I wonder if this is started now Andrew Friedman building the system cope just by looking at the box score. It is very interesting. You look at dodger pitchers you got one guy going three you got the next rip when you got my guys who start a relief all the time they had two other pitches. Two innings each and then they wrap it up with two more pitchers each going one inning. So you're right. That's, that's a lot of work divided up. But it's working Murphy, raise look at the teams that are doing it the Tampa Bay rays. Don't hit a ton of home runs. Naturally manufacture runs frequently. Well, look, they're breathing down the Yankees, Netco with three starting pitchers, and the rest of the games, they just go bullpen games. But they've got more arms. They've built their team around being a bullpen team. So to like point from a couple of weeks ago about the opener. I think teams are using the opener ineffectively because the team that's best added is the raise who have designed their rotation their pitching around using an opener. All these other teams are doing it sort of just randomly. I hear you. Very good. So we're going to open it. It's almost like they don't even know why they're doing you feel like it's a matter of time before the rest of the MLB kind of catches up and starts using the same model catches up or just abandoned because it's not all that affected. We gotta go guys, but not before two things. One to nine MAC Wilkins was on the ninety names. Mcnutt EUPOL, mecca tunein Wilkins was on the ninety six team. Tell those guys to f- off. See, we're looking at basketball reference right now ninety six team USA and he is not listed. Controversial going on reference page five one. Oh, says maybe violent mardi took.

"And then for do go and these guys and it's paying dividends. Right. It's one of those things where there's guys like John Ireland. He's at oh, just trade. Everybody everyone. But Andrew Friedman stuck to his guns, and yes, completely completely transformed. The steam because baseball I think basketball is different in basketball, you can trade your young guys for Anthony Davis. You do do it because only six guys leading right. There's only right? One guy makes it you zip. Six guys in that sport in the NBA are transcendent. Right. The other ones, you know, you can debate after that the next four or five, but place them, you know No, they're. they're just not transcended. They're not. They don't they're not game changers necessarily. But in baseball, you look, Alex Rodriguez signed in Texas, back in the day, the largest contract ever. He was the best player in baseball. And they were a last place team. And he was an MVP. You know what I'm saying? So it's like that's that is the right strategy in baseball for sure. Right. Yeah. And this the way that they're doing this is just so different than every other team. I can't think of another team that's done the, the things that they're doing right now. They're smart. It's it's and really this the Lakers should look at the dodgers as a model as a model and basis kind of not, maybe not so much for the young guys. I'm a young guy guy, but they should look at it. And like how that Andrew Friedman he listens to the guys around him. He talks to them. He makes amongst everybody. There's a group, right? I mean he just his GM got poached right is right. The giants far hunt everywhere. Yeah. All right. So Greg Bergman, the blue review is coming up at five o'clock on the ESPN Los Angeles Twitter..

"The dodgers are clearly the best team in the National League. They no argument there. Yeah. Let me ask you this is it is it almost like because last year was crazy. Let's not forget they were like ten games under five hundred. You You know. know, basically near Memorial Day, basically, if you remember correctly and people were freaking out. Yeah. They were. And now what happens is there so comfortably ahead that it's just everyone's just relax this. I kinda liked it. A little bit last year. And I'm explain why ruin because I, I, I kept the faith. I was like, man, this don't matter. And I remember people like nobody's don't do. Now there's been teams that did it. There have been teams have been in that spot one, the world's as a matter of fact they were three or four teams. The Houston Astros. When they when they won the world's when they went to the World Series, they lost that year that was the Chicago White Sox. I think when they were still in the National League. So it was like, oh, five. The marlins. All those teams were like ten games under five hundred may and either went or won the World Series. And there were a couple more. The Yankees had a late stretch to one year, one of those years that they won the World Series. So I just feel like it made it more like it made every gay matter more because they got behind Doug themselves such a whole whereas now I'm look. I think they're gonna win the World Series I said that to start the season I thought this was their year because what we talked about, remember Kershaw not being the key. Just one of the right that was your interest, great. You know, I just look at what hundred ruse doing right. Look at what the rotations doing now the bullpen, but I think you, you can add bullpen right? To me. You know what you're doing trade? Right. There's a single focus and that is adding arms. Right. Okay. Now they're not all gonna work out. I get it. Bullpen is a very the chemistry. There can be very tough at times. But if you had enough arms, you're going to hit on somebody. Okay. Right. So, I feel like I haven't a faith in Andrew Friedman in these guys that they're going to add enough arms that just based on that alone. They're going to be able to kind of make that thing work. So I think the winning this year and they're comfortable lead. They're gonna win the west by mile by double digits, as, as far as I'm concerned, and I don't even know the cubs play better. And, you know, the Phillies are playing all right. But I just don't see a team that can beat them four out of seven games in the NFC SO, I think barring, like a rash of injuries just one injury or to injuries. I mean like they gotta get decimated. Right for them. Blues and obviously has to be at the wrong time. But I just think that the way this thing is shaking out that. It's going to be great in September and October. But right now it doesn't help the season because I just think everyone's like, again, just to relax because last year when they dug that hole was on your game, I was watching every day, like, if I was out, I don't have TV. So I can't watch. So I was watching him OBT mobile network every night. And because they do the constant updates and, you know, Sean watching him. We'll be network every single night because I needed to know that the dodgers are watching them phone. I'm trying to see what the score is, and that if it's not good spot, or it's close them flip it over..

"Is locked until you make sure Andrew Friedman tonight in and out. He's there every day. So it part of me in, I'm not I'm not excusing. Sounds like this is a critique magic. A little I mean but genie, did give him the arrangement to, but I'm just saying, maybe it's not the worst thing in the world that he walked away about the last month has been about leadership. An absence of it. Well, she picked him. She picking. He wasn't all in. Right. And, and the aftermath of it has been as, as they say unmitigated disaster. It has been it's been a disastrous month for the Lakers and they. Well, the good news is you're gonna know in different. You're gonna know in less than two months. The you know if this works because this first two weeks, July is going to be monstrous. Oh, it'll be it'll. And honestly, if you look at the class of twenty twenty biggest most significant class ever twenty nineteen. Yeah, this one. Yeah. Twenty twenty it's a two person class. It's Anthony Davis and Draymond green, well, depending on what all these guys rant signs of one in one and either not chance to react to this. Boy, design Williamson increase the odds that Anthony Davis stays in New Orleans. And all the sudden he's off the trade board. I don't know. I don't know. I think David Griffin thinks that. Yeah. I think the Griffin does. But, you know, again, we'll see because, you know, did you see that it's June? Thirtieth three o'clock now day at three o'clock. We'll be live. Why? Already telling you right now. So there is a lot of work to do. Now. I mingle run, my guess, is because rob took all those questions today. Yeah. We probably won't hear from him until after those Sinai's prized. I will be very surprised if we hear anything from the organization. And if I was giving advice I would say genie go out and do an interview right now. Yeah. And you can even do it with state owned media with your own network. You've known TV network just go out and show, your face and medic. Splitting fans would feel better. They, they would absolutely feel better. But make no mistake, the last month has been a referendum not on rob Pelinka but on genie, which is why it'd be good. If we heard from her correct? Yeah. That now now would be the time for genie to come out and to lay out her vision for the organization. Let me ask you this. Do you think the fact that LeBron showed up today was a? A kind of a kiss to rob Lincoln Frank Vogel, that, hey, I'm going to do, what I can hear you didn't have to be there. One hundred percent. Yeah, a hundred percent. I mean this means LeBron has to whatever degree signed off on this arrangement. Just not just Frank Vogel, but also on the front office LeBron has basically indicated by showing up today that he's all in with these guys. And by the way, what choice does he have? He is in country guy he wants to be or not. So why not show, your full support as you get out to start recruiting free agents? ESPN LA. We're just talking there's other stuff going on hundred and ru. Wow, a thirty one inning scoreless streak. Now after throwing another gym yesterday for the dodgers dodgers are thirty one and seventeen. I think thirty one and seventeen took two out of three from the reds..

"That's coming up in a few minutes. So. We were just talking about the Lakers. Right. And just kind of how weird the process has been right. It's just been anyone remotely. Close to the basketball world has felt that it just feels like the process has either been non existent or just out of order or just strange in any way, shape or form, Andy, and it conversely, you look at the way the dodgers conduct their business, and it rarely feels like even if you disagree with some of the moves you understand that least their position though, when they make the moves is that a fair way to describe it. I feel like you have more confidence in the decisions that they're making if nothing else and like some of the decisions they've made like when they when they traded UCLA league. And Matt camp in that big, you know, salary moving deal to Cincinnati. It felt like they were setting up for something big. And that big thing never really happened. I mean the closest thing you'd call. It was AJ Pollock. But I think for most for most fans that's not what they were looking for and some fans, I know that was considered underwhelming. But by. Enlarge the moves this brain trust is made feels trustable like you you feel like their decisions being made by smart people who've got you know, they've got a reason that got a path that they're going down. Yeah. I mean, look Andrew Friedman got the Tampa Bay bleeping raise on a shoestring budget to the World Series. Right. That's that's all you needed to know. And look just because the man has money to work with now doesn't necessarily mean he's going to strike gold. Because that hasn't always been the case in baseball like we've seen guys who've worked on shoestring budgets, and then they go on to other teams general managers that are that is and it hasn't worked out. They haven't been able to replicate or duplicate their success that they had in the smaller market. So it's not always going to be the case. Perhaps. That's honestly, why Billy bean has never left the Oakland A's, right? Like, some people feel that despite having a chance he could have been the Red Sox general manager he could have been THEO Epstein, basically, if he wanted to be, and you know, Theo's been able to duplicate that now in two places with the reds. Socks and the cubs. So I just think that Andrew Friedman and just kind of the way the dodgers do business needs to be commended more in in this particular situation. But with the Lakers, I just hope that they just get this over with and higher Theron Lou because I also feel like money Williams is going to be a mistake money Williams, not necessarily from all the discussions..

He'll deliberately have like junior assistance, like really really low level. Guys talk in front of the whole group in front of the whole coaching staff antim- year scouting. So, and so you present your ideas, and it's like a sink or swim moment for, but it's also giving people a voice, and when people don't feel like they have a voice. Their voice is projected elsewhere. Right. And they get bitter. Right. It's not exactly how you form a harmonious organization. If people don't feel like they're being heard, right Horton to specifically empower people, right? And I think that you know, and I've always subscribed to the smartest guys in the room theory. In other words, I know this is the way Andrew Friedman operates. Andrew Friedman is not afraid of other general managers in his front office. He's empowered his scouts and everybody gets into a room at some point. And they hash it out. And they say, okay, we've arrived. I mean, Andrew has final say, but we've arrived at this conclusion. We've heard all the facts on both sides. We understand all the analytics behind that. And here's what we're gonna do. It's the smartest guys in the room theory. It sounds like that magic. And rob were the only two guys that were in from basketball operations who were involved in that room. Oh, there were people in the room. There's other people in the room..

"He got hurt. Right. Right. Right. And then that derailed. He was already dealing with. We he. So when we sign them remember he was coming off a bad back. Mark Cuban thought he would never live the life of that deal that you sign in Phoenix. So he was definitely under close watch and very strict as far as diet as far as they exercises. He had to the correctives and all that. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Because I'm worried about Kershaw they gave him that extra year. He's got three more years at thirty million dollars. You know, it's strange that this organization Andrew Friedman. Those guys who are really good at this stuff. They don't normally pay for past performance. And it felt like maybe ownership got involved or whatever. But it felt like there was a little bit of that involved with that signing, and hopefully it works out where they can keep them healthy enough for when it matters. But let's go to the phones we got a lot of people want to chime in on this gonna answer. My man. Tony romero. Yeah. Good. Tony. You're out of your mind wanted to train the Bronx. Yes, right. You can to sell out say lamonica get some good pieces of start from scratch. You don't have to do that. They've got picks. They've got. Young players. They've got cap space most of the time when teams do that trade their best player for pieces and picks in it's because they don't have any of that stuff is all we gotta clean up the books. You don't have to do any of that. Yeah. You sit still and just figure something else out. And then second of all it's still ignoring what I say if you trade LeBron goodbye to ever having another fridge and chimera again. Let's go to k Jane Elliott what up K J. Hey was not all man. And thank you for taking my call. You know, what I'm realizing I'm realizing a lot of analysts are going to a California dispensary and getting a bad batch. Meekness? They're they're spilling a lot of. Hey tourism. I don't blame. Lebron? I don't blame magic. I don't blame her up. I don't blame. Ginny. I don't blame the new players..

"Seven to thirty seven. This is not pools. This pool is a really nice player and a hall of Famer and all that stuff fame. I trout is compare Mike trout. Yeah. Ages twenty three to twenty six or whatever the last three years for trout are to Albert pool halls at the same age, you'll be astounded how similar they are. And I'm just saying poom Holtz everybody declines eventually. Yeah. Everybody declines eventual nitrile is the best baseball player of my lifetime. But I'm telling you Alber pools is in the top five of that of that conversation at when he was younger he was putting up better numbers than Hank. Aaron when he was younger when he was trout say. Age. So everybody would say alva- pool Holtz is, you know, putting them better numbers than the other thing about blow says he never was a good defender, right and trout is a gold glove defender. Well, like you said Trump's the best baseball player in position. But ten years to me like, do you think Andrew Friedman will give my ten years? I think that might be the one guy that Andrew Friedman would give ten years to so you're right on here, by the way, John from age twenty one to thirty our pool. Holes was incredible. Right. I remember his key season came out of nowhere sort of trout, and then the next year's MVP to VP to MVP three MVP one. He's basically Greg the way to describe. It is pools was trout before Trump. Yeah. No, no. It's not fair. Nope. Greg tell me I'm not a defender ranker's on here. I mean, it's only half the game. Yeah. But no. But here hit less than thirty home runs until seventeen thirteen. But Greg he was pool is not a defender. Trout is a defender that is that is you gentleman of different and also change because he's a different position as well. Right wing. Who did they move would the one? Why did he just moved to left field that one year who did they have? They had a center fielder at that. They thought was better defensively than I went really and they played trodden left field for fifty games one year..

"Hour of the weekend edition of Bloomberg BusinessWeek, including Andrew Friedman. He left a hedge fund and his departure as a lot about the state of the industry. And then we have a story on Universal Music. And it's really a bigger broader story, Jason about music, recording labels and for a while. Go back a few years we were saying they weren't worth anything. And now they are again, thanks to streaming. Well, it's when you stopped buying this. Cassettes, and CDs people are worried about the music business not so much anymore because of all the streaming plus looking to splurge when bonus comes in who's not our pursuit section has some very interesting ideas on what to buy but first step Jason. We talk a lot about Facebook, candy other tech companies when it comes to privacy. It seems to have been issue number one for the fangs over the last year and really at the heart of a big debate in Silicon Valley about our relationship with these topics. What's great about Sarah Frier story this week in the technology section of the magazine. It's about another privacy debate to be concerned about when it comes to face. But let's bring Sarah insists are what's going on? So for the past year. We've heard this over and over this argument from Facebook that they do not sell your data and pundits come out. And they say we'll typically you do right? I it's just a semantic argument you collect this data. But then you rented to advertisers, you rent the targeting us to advertisers. And then we get into this debate about whether Facebook should be doing that or not that is what I'm arguing is not the real privacy debate. When it comes to Facebook. The real debate is how much data are we giving them and how transparent are they being about the collection of that data? And I think some instances over the past year have shown that that is probably a more important discussion to be having because we really don't know. And they really don't talk about extent to which that occurs. This has really come to the fore even. More recently as they've started to talk about maybe consolidating some of the back end at least of their most popular applications that they're really counting on to grow the business. Help us understand how that comes into play. You have Facebook. Which knows who everyone is right. If you log in for Facebook, you have to use your real name if you use what's app or Instagram. You don't have to use your real name. So people have been able to have anonymous or semi anonymous identities on those platforms in what Facebook says it's doing is combining the back end of this platform, so that you can send messages to yourself on a different service. This is not really something that people have been asking for. But it's something that Facebook argues that we will want is the ability to send a message through what's happened who using Facebook marketplace or send a what that message through Instagram and vice versa. And what that is going to do for Facebook in. What they have not discussed is it will allow them to know who you are on those platforms. That'll connect that identity to the data that Facebook has about your real identity. So it's just another way that Facebook has been connecting the dots and get this their arguments about that combination. And why that's so important is encryption. So that you can send end to end encrypted messages. They're saying that they're doing it in the name of privacy. But they're actually going to get more data out of it. So I think we're going to see that over and over again Facebook saying they're doing something for privacy that ends up giving them a lot more information. And in the meantime, folks, lawmakers in congress are saying, wait, wait, what are we supposed to be concerned about when it comes to Facebook? I love this line and your story. The company has capitalized on the way. Congress misunderstood it's business. Explain that. So when I was testifying on Capitol Hill in April, this senators had this sort of back and forth within about do. Do you sell users data and Feerick says no we don't and that has allowed the company to go out and all of its marketing materials and all of its public speeches for the last few months in say there are some really fundamental misunderstandings about how our business works. It's not as scary as you think we don't sell your data. There's no reason you would want to be a data broker, and that's true. There is a reason basically want to sell your data because you're a data is what makes Facebook service, so valuable to advertisers. They're just going to use this argument to put up more walls around it to prevent other people from getting access to that kind of information in cemented their place of power in one of the sort of unintended consequences. And I feel like that is the that comes up over and over again in this entire argument. And as we try and figure out how these companies are operating, and I noticed this come out over the past week or so this idea of them changing a setting. Changing some access. So that researchers journalists and others can't get the same access to data that they could before propublica came out publicly and talked about this help us understand that a limit. So go back to what I said about Facebook putting up walls around and they're going to be able to say based on public demand. We know that people care about us not sharing their data with others. So we're just going to make it impossible. So you have these entities. Like researchers like propublica that are trying to add some transparency into this vast network of information, basically, a digital representation of how we live our lives and talk to each other and trying to help us understand what's happening there. But the only information can get now about how face a works is through Facebook itself in through the research today have they have decided to to fund in control or. A direct in some way that Sarah Frier. And I think this is a sports story in that. We've talked about Facebook a lot privacy concerns use about external data by a lot of its advertisers. This is a story that looks into data that Facebook is collecting and what it's doing with it. It really is an.

Dave Roberts, Cody Bellinger and MVP discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd

"World Series last night Red Sox went up to all on the dodgers at Fenway park. But don't blame. Dave Roberts in the NFL. Pete Carroll makes seven and a half million dollars. That's double what is general manager makes Sean Payton the saints makes nine million dollars a year. That's triple what is GM makes. But with the dodgers, the general manager Andrew Friedman make seven million dollars a year and the manager Dave Roberts makes one million. So stop blaming him. He wasn't allowed to play his best players last night. Because the guys up stairs run baseball. Everybody wants to did Dave Roberts. Just get dumb. Didn't even all the great moves against Milwaukee. No. He just got dumb and a week know the difference between that game last night is the Red Sox played all their best players and their stars were allowed to be stars. And Mookie Betts star three hits JD Martinez star huge RBI to RBI single. David price star sixth grade innings. Dave Roberts went to his office and said, I can't wait to we're a home run hitting team. I'm gonna pay. Oh, no. You can't play your home run hitters. Well, what do you mean? We were second in baseball and home runs. We led the National League in home runs. But the analytics overruled at upstairs and said, Cody bellinger's not gonna play I want you to think about that. Cody. Ballot ger was the National League championship series MVP. And he is not started for the first two games because he bats left handed. David price is a left hander and the numbers and the projector and the nerds and the analytics and the. Dave Roberts wasn't allowed to play. His stars. Can you imagine telling Mike dantonio the rockets you can't start James harden and play him? Can I play them later? Yeah. Couple minutes late in the game. Why? Well, analytic say, he'll stroke. Can you imagine? Ballot. Check being told by general manager can't play gronk what about in the no no analytic say you cannot play. Gronk. He doesn't match up folks. The dodgers three leading home run hitters. None started their nationally championship series. MVP? Didn't get a start there. Three leading home run hitters got three at bats whole game combined. Come on you want blame? Listen, don't blame the bagel if you're overweight and don't blame traffic if you're late to work leave earlier, eat better. It's ridiculous to keep beating up on these managers. I to me in October stars Trump analytics I want Mantelet ex and David Ortiz and a-rod after the game. We're saying basically, you didn't play Bellinger. What did you expect? Act a neuter their MVP. You can see it in his face the body language. He's got family. He's France Texan. I'm saying didn't you just win them p, bro? In the play of nobody knew the day up. You've over turned on the motor. What nobody is fans. One to see dot guy
