This storm is intensifying and looks like it's intensifying pretty quickly that's supposed to continue overnight really what's happening is this is going over some of the warmest water in the world right now that's why the forecast was concerning that's why the storm is so concerning it's not likely to weaken on its approach to land it's likely to intensify straight mostly through landfall just because of the conditions that are present so there's nothing in the atmosphere to really impede it and the waters of Gulf the of Mexico are warm and they're warm to an astonishing depth I think about 88 degrees all the way down to around 250 feet and we've seen these heat domes this summer up over the south Florida has had record heat Louisiana has had record Texas those heat domes influenced the Gulf and helped to record levels those weather patterns are linked in part to climate change global ocean temperatures are record warm right now that's linked in part to as well as El Nino so there there are larger forces at play but hurricane the itself is responding to what it feels immediately underneath and around it and unfortunately there's just no breaks right now on the system so it's just gonna you know press on the gas unfortunately that's incredible can we talk about for those not familiar with Florida's geography and topography what is the Big Bend area and is that still the the target of this storm as far as coming ashore later on yes it does appear the the Big Bend area it's a area that's at greatest risk basically the area from between Tallahassee and Tampa you can think of

"For those not familiar with Florida's geography and geography, what is the Big Bend area and is that still the target of the storm as far as coming ashore later on? Yeah, so it does appear the Big Bend area is the area that's at greatest risk. Really, if you think about Florida, you know, most of us go to areas As of the coast, maybe, where the coastline is pretty straight, either to the east coast or the west coast. But there is a part of the state in the northwest corner that takes this and curve then you have the Gulf Coast of Florida that sits parallel to the water. So basically, the area from between Tallahassee and Tampa, you can think of the coast making that curve kind of the The closest to where I've been to it is visiting Gainesville, Florida. The The fortunate thing is this is a pretty sparsely populated area. The unfortunate thing is is this one of the most vulnerable regions in the country, if not in the world, to high storm surge. So the water really gets piled up against the land and there's nowhere for it to go, because partly the ocean is very shallow in that region and it's shallow out to a pretty big, pretty great distance. Just the continental shelf is pretty shallow there. And the shape of the coast means that it's just going to accentuate the storm surge. So it's not often that you see the hurricane center use the word astrophic a day before landfall. And it's not often that they go explicitly for 10 15 to feet of storm surge in the forecast. To compare that to something, that is pretty much what Fort Myers beach saw last year in the end. Wow. Andrew, I'm sorry we don't have more time to talk now but we'll catch up with you as the storm progresses here. Thank you for this tonight. Thanks for having me.

"Of where we've watched the climate already. And it really is going beyond, you know, whatever natural cycle may be of the earth getting warmer and cooler. Apparently there's just convincing evidence now that it is the man -made contribution to this that is making the situation much worse. Yeah, there's really no doubt in the scientific community at this point over, you know, the main cause of climate change as well as what's happening with these extremes. Because once you shift the average, the global average surface temperature, you greatly increase the odds and severity of heat extremes. It's probably one of the most well understood aspects of climate change is heat extremes as well as precipitation extremes. And then you can get into some murky effects, which is the melt rate of Antarctica and Greenland and that sort of thing. But what we've been seeing, it can be described with very high levels of certainty. The ocean temperatures off Florida are jaw dropping over 101 degrees off the of tip South Florida, and that can kill coral reefs. You've reported on how some groups are trying to leave corals, individual but that's not sustainable. So it's really gonna be a bigger story, I think, in the months to come as we see what happens with the waters there. I mean, all it really takes is a hurricane going through that area, taking advantage of the warm water, and then some cooler water from below to help cool things down. It's really kind of a sad story seeing the coral reef scientists' social media accounts that I follow, and they're really, really worried about that region particularly. Andrew, for me, it's the lack of pooling that's hard to believe. When you see places like Phoenix don't fall below degrees for days? Yeah, I mean, Phoenix has been seemingly only getting down to between 94 and 96 degrees at night. It's extremely dangerous, especially if you don't have access to cooling because it's not giving your body any chance to get relief and get rest. We see that more and more in certain cities with the urban heat island effects, it's so sort of two things at once, where you have climate change and heat dome on top of you, and then, you know, the city, the center of the city especially, is staying warmer than surrounding areas. But it's been incredible to see, I mean, Phoenix is going to be the first large American city to ever average greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit a for month. And that's not just the average highs or the average lives, it's the average temperatures of all of these days put together, which makes it even more shocking. And it's because what you just said, it's because of those night lives staying so warm. We're just starting August in a couple of days, so where do we go from here? I mean, this was just July. What's really the place to watch this August isn't so much necessarily the record heat continuing, although that has a very big impact. it's also the fact that hurricane season typically is pretty quiet in July, and then you get to a point in August and boom, it lights up. And the question is whether or not that happens this August and September, but most forecasters are now betting that the sea surface temperatures will win out and it'll be a more active season. So wildfires in Greece and Canada, a heat dome over most of the US, and now you're telling me perhaps a busy hurricane season as well? Folks better be prepared with their emergency supplies just in case. Thanks to Andrew Friedman, the climate and energy reporter at Axios for your insight today. Thanks for having me. Interest

"They still sort of walking around with the same swagger in the same expectation and even using it as motivation the fact that their doubters now? Well, I think if you had Andrew Friedman do the annual WinCo prediction, I think he had already answered the question saying that you were going to win a 111 games again. So I think how well aware of that. I almost think they mind it. Like I don't think mine being in that position, obviously the preference is to win the division by 20 games. Last year, but I think there was a part of them in 2021 that was kind of invigorated by being in a postseason with the Giants. I obviously they knew they were going to make the playoffs, but just that division hunt invigorated them at points. I brought the best out of them. Obviously I think towards the end, it sort of tired them out and exhausted them. I think by the CS in 2021, they were kind of drained. But I think in the middle of that stretch, kind of brought out the best of them. I think they went like 44 and 13 to end that 2021 regular season. Obviously I was a really good team, but they sort of thrived in being a division race. I think that sort of is a tone to set for this season. I think it was probably a lot of parallels to that. Obviously, I don't know if the Padres and Dodgers are going to each win a 106 plus games this year, but they're going to be obviously in a really contentious race. And I think they know the benefits of winning the division, especially now with the wildcard around being instituted. I think they are going to really thrive in this. I honestly think that they're going to benefit from it. I think the biggest thing that's going to be in their way is just if these injuries and death starts to pile up, because there's enough residue resident talent on this roster to win the division. I think that should be the expectation. I think a successful season is obviously beyond that. It's getting back to the World Series again. And I think that's always going to be the thing. You want to be the goal as long as it's sort of this group is in place. And this is more of a season preview than a full year preview. So we probably don't have to ask you where Shohei Ohtani is going to go because if you knew that, I imagine you would have reported it by now, but do you think that being reunited with former angels beat writer Fabian ardaya will be a big factor in his decision? I don't think so. Me asking him about his walk up songs and about certain random things that he did in his early years. I don't think that's necessarily a positive or a negative. I think it's just one of those things. But I do know the Dodgers have been obsessed with showy Otani since he was in high school. And that's going back to a previous regime, obviously, but there's been a lot of interest in him for a long time. So I wouldn't be surprised that they're heavily dynamics. So you're saying it'll be like a tie breaker, basically. Two teams offer him the same amount of money. I don't think it'll be part of Andrew Friedman's pitch. No. Well, maybe it's in the back of his mind. I'm sure he'd be happy to see you again. I can't believe you left him. I mean, if I were covering Shohei Ohtani, I don't know that I could move to cover another team, even a more successful team, but I'm looking at something on the Dodgers B who did that. Yeah, that's true. Yeah, maybe he wants to see Jack Harris again, or someone else, right? Well, that's an unsung factor in the Shohei Ohtani sweepstakes, the former angels beat writers who cover the Dodgers now. And the familiarity that Shohei Ohtani has with them could be the secret advantage that no one is giving the doctor's credit for. All right, you can read Fabian on the Dodgers. All season long, unless he decamps for some other team somewhere else. Who knows, but the Dodgers, he is at for now and for the foreseeable future and also on Twitter at Fabian ardaya, always a pleasure to read you into talk to you. Thanks for having me. Yeah, thanks for having me. And with that, we are officially halfway

Allen Gonzalez covers baseball for ESPN. He's back home in California after a time in Arizona, Alvin, how are you doing? I'm doing great buster. How are you doing, man? I'm doing great. I spent a lot of time yesterday digging through the aftermath of the news about Gavin Lux. Torn ACL out for the year. And I wrote a piece that I think is going to run on ESPN dot com later today about the Dodgers potential alternatives now at shortstop. And a couple of observations. One, I really feel like that casual baseball fans don't understand what a big injury this is. And two, when you go through all the alternatives for the Dodgers, they're no great alternatives. There are, I mean, they are an organization as it wrote in the piece that have distinguished themselves by their depth, but in this case, this is as vulnerable as I've ever seen them since Andrew Friedman took over in a particular position in a particular moment. What do you think? Well, I would say that there are upper level position player depth, particularly on the infield, is not great, at least not outside of the active roster. And I think you're absolutely right. You're not overstating the impact of the camera luxury, because I mean, if you just sort of take a bird's eye look at the Dodgers. This whole season was all about taking a step back and letting their young players have a runway to play. To prove themselves because that's where they felt like they were. They were at in their organizational trajectory. And nobody represented that better than Gavin Lux goyan and his age 25 season. The guy that I will remind you, they refuse to trade in several other instances in the past to get ready to ready to go impact players for a pennant race because they felt like Gavin Lux was going to be a future star for them. And they felt that shortstop was his best position. Some of the Dodgers coaches that I spoke with in Arizona before this injury were really high on how Gavin Lux his arm would play at shortstop. They felt that he could be able to handle the position even without shifting and needless to say, they love his bat. I mean, that's his calling card, right? They love his approach as a plate. They felt like eventually he could hit at the top of their lineup. With Gavin Lux down, I mean, look, the immediate thing you say is McGill real house is going to be your everyday shortstop. He was not brought in to be the everyday shortstop. He was brought in to be a backup. Chris Taylor will see some time at shortstop, they might even have Mookie bets play some second base to give them a little bit more infield depth. But look, I said this on Twitter yesterday, eventually they're going to need somebody. They can't replace Gavin Lux in the immediate. And their lineup is lacking. They let tray turn or go, Justin Turner is not there anymore. You know, it's basically max muncy and Chris Taylor and coming off some really down years. They needed the steadiness that Gavin Lux when he's healthier right can provide, and now they're not going to have it. And I, you know, he's had three years of apprenticeships for the Dodgers, Gavin Lux, and just being around him last year. First off, he's a super talented, he's a confident player, but you could feel last year like that growing. And it felt like this year was the year potentially he was just going to be a monster presence in that lineup. Yeah, I mean, did you feel the same thing being around him last year? They feel like he's a leader. They feel like he's a leader. He's eventually going to be a leader in their Clubhouse. They've always seen it that way. And, you know, I was listening to him talk. I wasn't in Arizona in the last couple of days with this injury habit, but I watched his interview. It just sort of watching him break down and talking about how what an honor it is to be the shortstop for the Los Angeles Dodgers. I think he really carried that. And you talked to the Dodgers coaches. He was in LA really early on working on shortstop because he wanted to get it right, right? Him and Miguel Vargas together in Los Angeles, taking ground balls. I just coaches in December with nobody was there because he wanted to be the shortest. And just it's tough for the Dodgers. I honestly really feel for Gavin Lux, because this was his time, right? This was like his time in his career to take that step forward to step that a lot of people in the Dodgers believe that he was capable of taking and before he could even get started. It was just taken right out from under him. So I'm going to ask you in a moment about whether or not this injury, how it affects your view of the national league west because of course we got the news yesterday, Joe musgrove was going to be out for a long time. Maybe not a whole season, but he's going to be out for a significant period of time after suffering that broken toe. The first is running through the Dodgers options. You know, talking with rival executives about what's out there in the shortstop market. Start with this. And internal potential solution is Chris Taylor, who told reporters yesterday, you know, he's altering his throwing program a little bit. He's getting ready to play shortstop. He was a shortstop in college. He was drafted as a shortstop. He's played almost 300 games at shortstop, but if you put him in shortstop, it takes him away from what he's real value has been since he joined the Dodgers. A guy who could plug and fill a lot of different spots. So they may use Chris Taylor shortstop, but that's not something they've necessarily want to do. And you referenced last year. He had a terrible offensive year.

"And then you add by the way Trade Turner, who's leading off tonight, 3 21 average 21 home runs 58 RBS. And, Of course, that's not just all with the daughters. But in his time this year and the nationally with the Washington Nationals in in L. A And then Oh, by the way, you have a guy by the name of masters and for Andrew Friedman, the president of baseball office for the Dodgers to be able to do that, and really only lose Josiah Gray and collaborate Ruiz, who are obviously very good pitching prospects and position player prospects. Um, it just goes to show you what the Dodgers are capable of doing. And you have a guy like Cody Bellinger as you mentioned who has certainly struggled with 2000 and 19 M v. P, but he just can't hit that high fastball this year. He is In his own way Mentally, he is completely struggled physically. Obviously, he has struggled coming off of that shoulder surgery and by the way for fans in San Diego. It's the exact same injury that Fernando Teddy Jr hat And Cody went through the surgery in the off season, and he just hasn't quite gotten that strength back. So I think it's a lot of physical. I think it's a lot of mental and now Cody goes from being you know, a Gold Glove center fielder could easily have been a Gold Glove first baseman if you had enough reps over there The guy that they're now put tuning in center field, And he likely going to sit Austin times more than not against left handed pitching, so and by the way they still haven't FDD the last time they became Before yesterday, the last time the teams met. They didn't have Corey senior in the lineup, and they didn't have that. That's no, I know. But you get those two guys back, um, not to mention the All Star year Chris Taylor's having which I believe he's one of the most underrated players and all of baseball. You have Max 20, by the way, who hit 30 home runs a year and now by the way, you still have just in China, So it's just, you know, it's just a little bit disgusting with the amount of guys that they have in their lineup and in their rotation. Are they confident that with an off season of rest that Bellenger will be back to the Bellenger that we all knew before this year? You know, I hope so. I think you know you want you want to see a guy like that succeed, considering the caliber that we know that he is capable of doing. Um, you know, it's a tough surgery. It's a tough It's a tough injury to to have. I don't you know, Matt Kemp didn't necessarily come back from it when he smashed himself into the wall several years back, and it does change the player a little bit so I do believe that they hope that you know Cody Bellenger get back to form, but they certainly I would not imagine would have expected Cody to be hitting. You know, 1 69 this year with just nine bombs and And he has driven in 32. But that's just not what you expect from an M V P guy that was just, you know, most valuable player two seasons ago. From from what you know, and what you've heard around the Dodgers organization when you look at their pitching, Yeah, like David Price scratched on Friday, and when what's his status? And when do you think that will see Kershaw back out there? David Price. I'm not certain as far as his status is concerned. I don't think it's anything too serious, and the Dodgers do have the luxury of being very cautious when it comes to guys so they can. I mean, I know they're still trying to win the division. But again, they do have some pretty strong arms. Um, in that rotation as well as in that bullpen that can kind of pick up the black if you will, with David Price going on the aisle. Herschell is making good progress. Kershaw. I believe it's going to throw. He had one simulated game one innings of the East game. And then he had a bull concession that he was going to throw another three inning simulated game. So I would imagine if Kirsch isn't back. Um, you know next week could be you know, Christ 10 days from now. And that's exactly what you want right in the heat of the pennant race to be able to get a Clayton Kershaw that is fresh. No real wear his hair on that arm this year. Um, you know when he's played catch on flat ground or what he's been in the simulated games are in his side sessions or what have you He's not holding anything back. He's using his entire pitch mix, so he looks good, and they're confident that they would imagine curses back within the next week to 10 days. I wanna thank you so much.

That's the way you find an edge. If you can't just throw money at it. You've got to find those edges. You know Andrew Friedman years ago, he runs the Dodgers. Don Boni ran Tampa bases. My job is to find the next edge that nobody else has figured out. Why you're good summation because that's what the Giants have done, and they've got the best record in baseball, and they've got a lot of baseball ahead of him some tough games, but they've got the starting staff and they have a lot of depth right now, and they've got some injured players coming back. Paul White is with us, Paul. You look at the trademark it and it's July 31st and I know we love the conversations about trades. We have Jesse Agler on from the Padres. He thinks they're going to be very active. For starting pitching, and perhaps maybe another hitter. An outfielder Bill brought up Joey Gallo. What do you see? Coming in the trade mark it up to July. 31st active, not active. Who do you think will be the big players? Well, I think it'll be active. I mean, you've got you've got to start looking at you know, there's still a bunch of teams in the National League is the more intriguing one. Because is there anybody else who can climb into the race safe for the wild card? Because since since day one pretty much has been the Three teams in the West. It's like okay, whoever is leading the division has been mostly the Giants, even if the Dodgers would catch them, Dodgers Giants Padres and there's a gap to the wild card teams. There's a gap to the first place teams in the other divisions. So is there anybody else that can really sneaking in and make a run for look for a couple weeks there looked like Washington might be the team. Um, with with Schwarber out for an extended period. Can they keep it up? And they're close enough in that division, But maybe maybe not enough to get back in the wild card race. Is there anybody in this central? You know, you talk about the Cardinals as long as clarity's out, and Carlos Martinez is so inconsistent, they probably can't make a running. You talked about their offense. Where's that team? It was the Cubs for a couple weeks now they've been losing last night in a row. Um, you know, is it Cincinnati kind of an intriguing team there above 500. You know, they're they're starting staff might be okay. But that's the key in the National League. A lot of teams might think they're out of it. But You know who are Who are the buyers going to be? Other than, say, the Padres. Yeah, I think the Padres could be. I think teams that are. Maybe Milwaukee could use some offense. Milwaukee is look, they won 11 in a row. They're hot. And I brought it up in the beginning of the show today that you're looking at Milwaukee only a few games behind the Giants right now for the best record in the National League, right, And that's that's a very Look underrated. I don't start on the radio, but they're ignored their pitching staff. You've got two guys on the starting staff that made the All Star team would Griffin Burns as frankly, Freddie parole. So is everybody as good as those two guys. His numbers match up with him. He probably should be there, too. And got hater in the bullpen. Williams, the rookie of the year has been up and down this year, maybe a little depth there, But you're right. They need some more offense. Um, you know Cincinnati's kind of the opposite. They could use a little bit more pitching. Um, you know, they're still like 5 5.5 games out of that. That last wild card spot That's going to be tough, tough gap to close because as long as the Giants staff busy staff stays healthy, they're not going away. The Dodgers aren't going away and you're right. The potteries are good and they'll be aggressive..

"We talked about the changes today and he wouldn't stand for this stuff. Terry Collins has told me he wouldn't consider having to be bullied the way the way these managers are. And if you notice the trend, it's all young players who played 10 12 years ago. Gabe Kapler. Uh, you know, you think about some of these players and some of these managers whose? What's I'm sorry. I'm having another brain priest. The manager in Minnesota, Rocco Baldelli. Rocco Baldelli. Rocco Baldelli is a prospect. Use the number one draft pick. This is a guy that young players, Miguel Sano told me. He loves hearing from him because it's relatable because he's young. That's the job when it comes down to how the bull tend to being run that comes from the hierarchy, and it all trickles down. And so when their struggles you can't pin this on the manager like you could in 1985, and for those folks out there that again we're talking about Rocco Baldelli. Like you said he was a prospect. Um, ended up hurting his knee and then had an auto immune deficiency disease. That really kind of robbed him. They said he was going to be the next Joe DiMaggio. But when he stopped playing what did he go do, Seth? He went to go work for Andrew Friedman in player development in the front office. So he learned how you put together a line up in the front office and how the saver Nutrition's will go and they'll take everything and they'll figure out the probabilities. And and the the algorithms will tell you all writing is by design, exactly, And you know, and I'm just kind of I'm just kind of painting by numbers. Right, and so that it's not to belittle the managers. But what I won't do is they will not pin teams losing on managers. Can you let the managers hardest job is is to go on? Zoom and talk to the media. Seth ever joining us here on CBS Sports radio. I mean, you look at a guy like Joe Maddon. Joe Maddon is kind of the arch type that a lot of these younger managers are based on because although Joe's Joe's a little bit older comes from a different generation Man. He's got the soul of a 20 year old. He understands players he talks to them. Communications is one of his big keys, and then he knows how to manipulate the wind up that sent down And the names that are put out there and he's got a card over there. This is all right seventh inning they're bringing in this. Here's the situation here is the probabilities of what you should do, and he's been able to be successful that way. Well, but you're Madden's also the guy when Anthony Rizzo had a 10 pitch at bat, where the 10th pitch with the swinging strike three, he went in high five. But that goes right back, man nutrition guy that I saw, and I saw that for the first time, and that's when I started asking scouts about it. I started saying, How often is that happening? How often are guys getting rewarded for strikeouts? This was probably 2017, and it has gone on and on. I remember seeing two men at the winter meetings and I said, You realize you've started that and he said, Well, think about the goals. Think about the objective. If the objective is to get the starting pitcher out of there. And that's where the proliferation of openers I know we're going off in a lot of tangents. But the proliferation of owners of openers has gotten to the point Now where what you're seeing is the burning of a pitch count has been diminished. It's literally a game of chess. And has anyone outside of the Queen's gambit has have you seen a chess match? Get great ratings on television. I'm not since deep blue. The IBM computer and I don't know who this I can't even fake That one. And you know where to set. This all goes back to this also goes back to the Oakland A's because in two let's see 1998. That was my first year there. And they started looking at these numbers, and Billy started getting more and more involved than he took over as general manager for Sandy Alderson. One of the things they noticed about the New York Yankees is the New York Yankees got into bull pens before anybody else in baseball. They chased starters quicker than everybody else because they went as deep as they couldn't count because they had good hitters. And the Oakland I said, You know what? Let's get into the soft underbelly of of of a team. Let's get into their middle relief and that's where he can make some noise. And this is 20 years later. This is where we're getting. Managers, high fiving guys after having a 10.10 pitch at bat really punch out. It's become a sport where I you know, I worry about it. I don't want to sound like I'm angry. Because they're doing this to themselves. There are two major things that have to happen in order to begin the process of restoring baseball to what it was. The first one is the collective bargaining agreement. Because right now the players want to continue things as if it's 2000 and eight and the owners are trying to change everything, and that's a fuck a a psychological difference. That's not like when done fear and Bud ceiling. We're big. We're sake, Salary cap for no salary. This is much deeper than that. And Toni Clarke and Rob Manfred don't have the disdain. But and fear used to have. But if you remember the National Hockey League during the pandemic when they had to restart their season and start those bubbles, they extended their collective bargaining agreement by 40 years. That's how you handle a pandemic. I thought last year the mistake that was made was there was so much emphasis on that hodgepodge season, when what should have done is chalk that season up to covid. And do me a favor. Fix your game so that when you came back in April of 21, you came back with the labor peace because now that we have opened things up, and now that stadiums are going to be full, you're going to have 70,000 people at an NFL game and baseball is going to be talking about a labor stoppage. Yeah, it's mind numbing And you know I'm in my forties. And what I have also often said, is fast forward 30 years when we're in our seventies. We have the passion about baseball because we grew up in this sport. Tell me the 15 year old that will be 35 45 years old, who will then say that baseball meant nearly as much to them. And that's when I think the thing will start to really, really trickle down. You're seeing ratings and ratings are hard to judge now because of all the cord cutting and streaming and all of that stuff, so it's not as easy to say well, less people are watching the game. But less people are talking about the game. Look at what trends on social media during baseball games. While all right, Seth, thank you very much for giving me a, uh, a nightmare on Saturday morning. There now I'm going to be sitting around all day long worrying about the game Baseball. I got a 20 year old plays college baseball. Don't know if he sits down and we'll watch nine innings, but we'll watch the highlights like you talked about, by the way, Give me tell people where we can find your podcast.

"28 now I mean, And that would be interested in a way. It's obvious the way you know, and I think if the pandemic didn't hit Maybe the age could have been in a new ballpark somewhere. Uh, found them with their timeline is now there. You know, it's way down the line, so that's not gonna happen. So I mean, we were hopeful that they'd Be able to get the ball park up and running, at least start construction. And then the increased revenue to be over to keep the mats or one of them. I think they could keep Olson No, he could be your Chavez here. He could be the last man standing. I don't know. The question. It's ultimately as we have said, It's a matter of when. Not if And if he says when, for now. Now he may wait to the deadline of the Mets. I mean, this owner is different. In the middle of a pandemic. You want to take on that salary? That's something you may do in July. She would kind of year the Mets have or Something we've been thinking about because he did strike early with Molder. And if you trade him now, as opposed to You know, there's a deadline of 23. You're not going to get the return back as they're going to say, Well this by him in a few months, if you trade him in the deadline a 22. Then you got him for a year and a half betrayed him now. I mean, right now, you've got him for three years that Miyajima trades for him. You don't have to give a new deal right away. You know, you got the Arab years. They are beers their great value. I don't think I'll do it right now. Do you think you hold on them a little bit? I don't but the win they can still with you and I agree with that, And that's you know, they wouldn't got Alvin Sanders. He's a major league quality shortstop Jed Lowry. They traded One of their second basement today, so I think lower even though he's on a minor league deal is probably gonna be their second basement. It can stay healthy, so they're trying to piece it together. But the other side of it like you said, is you essentially would get then Matt Chapman below market way below market for three years He's 27, which is the prime of his career. If you are again if you look at it, look at players like the stock market. Matt Chapman's at a pretty high number right now, and if you're deciding to yourself, you know what? We just can't keep it together the pandemic whatever the case may be, because they're not spending money. The only thing they're doing is Is cutting. Uh, this I mean, I could see where it makes sense. I know it's frustrating the A's fans but a guy in the prime with three more our beers. What could you get from the Met? You get a ton a lot, but I mean, my thought would be And you know, the reports of the beginning of the offseason is Billy's going to get out of baseball s o when you like to take another swing, And maybe you know his his new venture is not gonna happen. Ultimately, I don't know. But this team can win right now. Right? What? And they lost Simeon? Who else have they lost to Davis? I don't think is a big loss. Um, Yeah, right. I have to go through. I mean, there's a Dallas Liam Hendriks. The closer. Let's have lost Liam Hendriks to close your eyes. They they were. They have playoff team right now, if they keep Chapman Yeah, I think so. I mean, if you look at the division, Houston has taken some hits. I still think they're the favorites. But Houston's taking hits right, they lose Springer. They don't have the pitching They want once had Verlander's still not gonna pitch this year. So you're one is grant you but there. I mean, they saw the talented pitching staff, but they're not as good. Who else you haven't division. The Mariners have a good farm system. Maybe they'll be decent in a couple of years. Texas is completely down. The Angels are what they normally are. I don't think they're gonna do anything. That the division could be for the taking. I think they're absolutely in the discussion for that. For moments like this, I turned to one man and one man. Only the great infielder. The Casey Royals from the eighties built Dakota on hey, tells me they got them. It's 79.6 rules. See if that's what you're doing. You might as well tear it apart. Well, what the hell is Pako Didn't I don't know anything. I want to know what being forced No. Seven. So they're right now they have not the losing team course of they lost. Simeone? Yeah. Costello the only part of the year they lost the closer Hendricks. They lost crush. Davis. Yeah. Wow. I mean, uh, I guess I mean we selling off already. I mean, who knows Billy's teams always Overachieve. Yeah, they always pitch better than you think They're gonna pitch and That that Z I mean, they were. I thought that you know. Last year they were with the White Sox. But you know Chicago's loaded up this year they only have Chicago winning 83.1 games this year has been noted. Mean Tony's loading up? I have to continue. It's better than two, maybe three weeks. I I agree, so I mean, we knew this was coming, but we didn't think it was coming around the corner. We thought it was coming around van a little bit down the road apiece, so I you know, I don't think I'll do it now, but we'll see. I mean, they I mean, obviously, we've already thought about it his relationship with Sandy Alderson and he's tight with other people. I thought maybe flipping a far around. He's not doing that. I like that. Watch Chapman go across the bridge. Oh, come on. I'm gonna get out of the business. And I'm gonna trade Manchev into the Giants for my buddy for hot. Next time, Caesar will be fun. We're gonna We're now fun with next offseason because hopefully guys will be back for him. At some point. I thought about Simeon. Wow. No way. I'm not. It's bad enough that you have to trade jabbing because at some point they Diogo But if you think but had him go across the bridge, no way now, having said that the Giants I just saw this, whether it matters or not, they have. I think the ninth best system and then it was because some of these guys, they're still really young. They're expected to be a top five system next year. So they've got prospects. The same. Keep your fingerprints off of Lucky Luciano Executive Doctor America. He'd want him. All right. Ramos and Bishop Luciano and jelly. They've already got Murphy really good catcher, but so they wouldn't be in the market for that. Probably. I thought about the Dodgers. We thought about the Dodgers when they got Trevor Bauer. We said, you know what I'm talking about Her time for Andrew Friedman tries to get Chabon. Absolutely Ultimate thing with Chapman is he's is looming towards pre agency. That's not the point of this Esso and you know, after 2023, he's gonna be on the side where he's gonna play. So you have some say in this and Scott Boris is the agent which Is a turn off for a lot of people in baseball having to deal with him. But I mean Match Dodgers..

I can I have a half mil $40 million in the next year, he makes $45 million. But when Andrew Friedman, who is the head of baseball operations with the Dodgers was asked about the Sonny and Trevor Bauer the asked him So does this have anything to do with the Padres? And he says, Yes, we're very aware of the Padres. Now that Lily, let's stop everything right now. Wait. What? So Padres were born in 1969. And the Padre Dodger rivalry has always been a one very one sided rivalry. In other words, apparently it's all us his rival has always been the Giants. The Padres have never been the Dodgers rival. But the Padres always view the Dodgers as their rival. Because we hate l A. You know, exactly. And I didn't know. You know, being in l. A guy who came to San Diego three decades ago. I didn't understand this. Like no one else. Like hate San Diego. That's right. Nobody. One way road trip. Wait. All of you. I never felt until I got to San Diego 30 years ago.

Have a taco, take your money. But once those taken Are available, and by the way I've been doing you know what's going on with season tickets right? And so there's no definitive plan yet for the Padres is Forest Acres is concerned because we don't know what kind of capacity there will be allowed. We heard New York had 10% maybe the same here, but this changes the whole dynamic of the season is great as it is to have the Padres being good. The fact that the Dodgers are worried about the Padres. Yeah, it's just gonna make it that much more smoke. That's it. That's it. There you go. So we'll talk. Okay. Let me about that today.

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.

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.

Ah great giant coach and figure retires. But first, Mike as we say good morning to you on the Omagh guess line happy Tuesday to you. Well, you gotta start with the big news. I know you talkto Greg and John Popper inland last week, But it's our first chance to talk to you. And there's been even more reflection. I think as the weekend went on of the passing of Tommy Lasorda Mike, I was I was pretty taken with how much it kind of went on for a couple days like people really were affected by his presence in the game, and, uh And and you. You were right there. You knew him. So good morning, Mike. And just some more thoughts as you reflect it over the weekend about Tommy. Good morning to you. And yeah, we've got a million stories. You know they're not all good. I mean, caustic personality, Especially when you didn't wear his uniform. You know, he gave you a picture musical Try make your life is miss brawls. As possible. And then he was not above using you as a prop. If you walked into a golf tournament, you were there and he had his entourage always had an entourage and he was single you out, and he would just start dressing you up and down to entertain the folks around him and whatnot. But You know, he was Hey, was a cartoon and you know, he He was a guy who's kind of a frustrated athlete. He pitched 11 years. In the minor leagues at Triple A level in Montreal. It's like a legend up there, but he never got the big leagues when he did. He was well, you got the big leagues, his own forehead, one start own four. And don't think for a second that we wouldn't remind him of that when he walked by our dugout, you know, so We would. We would try and throw fuel on the fire whenever he could. But I will tell you one story about him that I haven't told before. And it gives you an idea of the kind of guy you know you just ambassador to not just baseball but to life. This is like 1920 20, I think was the first year That, uh, the Pac Bell opened up, and, uh And the sort of I think he was tied in. You know, in 1996, I think is when he retired anyway, so, but he was always at the game. And here we are, Samson when he certainly wanted to see the new ballpark. And on this particular day in the middle of summer is the second time the Dodgers had come in a friend of mine that I got to high school with John Bush, his wife, Robin, live up in Marin, and they have a The other boy, Alex, And at that time, Alex was a first year Boy Scouts and on that particular night, John came in with a friend of his, and there were two little boys. They're They're 11 12 years older 10 or whatever. The first year of Boy Scouts is and they had their shirts on and they had their neckerchiefs and their little caps. And then you know that Anywhere. They came into the boot during the course of the ball game, And while we're in there Here comes the story pokes his head, and he sees the four guys and they're the two little boys with scout jerseys on And again, you know, John was my best man at my wedding and we played basketball in high school grew up together and And from Southern California and So obviously John was you know he knew of Lasorda and he was a Dodger fan. Hello, I anyway, so here comes We're sort of walking down the hall. He pokes his head in the booth. And he sees the two little guys there He comes walking in and you know, and he doesn't just sneak and you know, he comes in arms are flailing his, you know, and he's interrupts what he's saying. And he sees the two guys and right away. It takes his fingers and he puts him up to us to his head, and he started reciting the Bush scout oath. And a serious he starts the to know best. They put their fingers up on that Captain salute. And they said, saying the bush got up on my honor. I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and that they just got what help other people at all times to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight. And it was perfect. These two old guys, you know, they spend up hours trying to memorize just thinking they had no clue. The time of your sort of was, But you should've seen the look on the two fathers. It was priceless. There's a guy who's uh, who's a legend and I don't think anybody work the room better than this guy and On that particular moment he made those two little guys feels that they were the most important guys in that room, and I thought that was a pretty pretty special. Well, what a character and like you said. Not all good. Like he okay, I'll come in. He'll step on toes, but men just you just larger than life. You know, it's a character that you just don't get around anymore. You know everybody's kind of tamp down a little bit these days, but Not Tommy Lasorda. It was a you know, I had him on Mount Dodger more. I made it up here on the air. Mike, What do you think as a I go, Jackie Vin Scully. Tommy Lasorda and Sandy Koufax and my leaving something. Yeah, I can't. I can't argue with that. I really can't. I mean, he He's just a cartoon. And I mean, he was right there with. You know, Harry Carey was here replaceable. I mean, they're just that aren't many guys like that. That just Come into the game and it's their life and they never change and they stay in that character. You know, it Z. I agree that those four of the guys Yeah, and then he missed him. I mean, in the sense that there's really nobody in the Dodger organization now represents that. You know, it's not that that guy who when they come to town Not Dave Roberts. It's not, you know the Andrew Friedman. You know, it's kind of like we're miss it. So anyway, Uh ah.

Yeah, you and Ted later I go..
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.
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
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.
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
