"I went down to Houston to write a story about the worst Major league baseball team in 50 years. It was hard to be a member of that club.

Have you ever been around anybody like him and baseball? Never. Never. Never.

Australian PM is vaccinated as rollout begins
"Today is the day that vaccination start to roll out across australia but we got a little preview of that yesterday with the with the prime minister and world war two survivor and a couple of other people getting the vaccine yesterday. Yes they go to i. Those of the pfizer vaccine which also followed a day on saturday of anti xers demonstrating and being talked to list in one city by pete evans. Some people criticizing the prime minister. Full so-called jumping the queue to get the vaccine before anyone else does but maybe leading by example. I just don't think you can criticize our leaders for having the it's not as if whole parliament skating it. It's really just showing their confidence in the vaccine. I think it's really important. Thing down the track. You'll see the health minister leader of the opposition getting the astra vaccine or the chief medical officer. Getting the astra vaccine to show that the our leaders are. You do have trust in this. And do you do believe in science. And i mean it's like laser immune to getting the virus either. Pay dutton got covid early. Jia by tribe and you you want your leadership cupboard and there's tens of thousands of accents that are gonna roll at in just the next couple of weeks. So i suppose people sort of is on the horizon going cool vaccine zahia. That's a really big comfort in a time of pandemic. When do we start to see things going back to normal. That's the critical question. And it depends what you call going back to normal because in most parts of australia. Things are pretty normal. We've got very little if any covid. Nineteen virus around in australia and new south wales is going weeks so has so have other jurisdictions so available around so we're back to normal internally back to normal means opening the borders having international travellers and tourists coming to australia us being able to go overseas listening. You'll becoming part of the world again. I think that's what we mean by becoming not becoming normal and covered that on tonight's Seven thirty program by talking to a mortar spoke to chris. Murray who heads the institute for health metrics and evaluation and he's of the he runs one of the world's leading modeling groups and covered on the health report back in november. He predicted the dr the global downturn in cases of covid nineteen that. We're seeing now he. He predicted almost to the week and his was. That was going to be nothing to do with. Thanks to nation and everything to do with season. -ality that really. It would have itself out in terms of the winter surge in covid nineteen. Because it's so seasonal. So i decided to go back to him. Seen other vaccinations going out. What what what's your modeling moving forward and it was quite sobering. He says he's not as bullish. Nah as he was back in november the variables that he's taking into consideration people's behavior. Now remember we're talking about the northern hemisphere not stralia new zealand but of almost no virus. And we've got close borders visit. If people's behavior goes back to normal before you get down to very low levels of virus transmission then you. He believes that you could. Well see a third wave evolving at the end of the northern summer. Pretty much like you saw in in twenty twenty and what could make that. Which is the second variable that he's worried about our vaccine resistant. Very variants of the virus escaped the vaccine and that they could really muddle the muddy the water considerably. How does that fit with other data that seeing coming out saying that the vaccines are reducing transmission in places like i and that's a place where the at least the uk variant is very prevalent on the uk very sensitive to the vaccine it's african variant and other variants than meyer is including the brazilian variant. We're not much is known. And you'll remember that. We spoke some days ago. About the brazilian city minnows. Seventy six percent of people had been infected with the virus. There were only five hundred admissions to hospital in the beginning of december beginning of january first nineteen days of january. Three thousand five hundred hospitalizations in so vaccine trials a very high percentage of people where had had covid nineteen when they were into the trial and in the placebo group they got reinfected with the south african variant so these vaccine escape variants are really worrying in terms of reinfection. Saw the vaccine does is turns covered one thousand nine hundred common core. Which is why. I'm gonna take the astra and we're five. We'll take whatever is given to me. Because i don't want to die of covid. Nineteen but if what we are looking for an opening of the borders and international normalization at least in australia. According to chris murray. We've made the wrong bet with the astro vaccine. He says you really do need to be immunizing with pfizer or madeira. Or perhaps even novak so that still to be proved in the real world. We're much higher. Degrees of efficacy and reduction in transmission and remember the other issue reduction in transmission is that these new variants emerge in countries. Where there's a lot of spread where the virus is multiplying and replicating all the time. And that's where these new variants are being thrown off. They won't be thrown off in austria. Where there's no virus around they'll be thrown off in low income countries like sight words middle income countries like south africa. They'll be thrown off in the united states in britain and other places if the virus keeps on circulating. So what we've got to do is get to very high levels of immunization very very quickly with highly effective vaccines and hope that that minimizes these of virus. Which is resistant to the vaccines. And then what we gotta do. And it's got to be done right now actually getting vaccines op through visor. Moderna novak's which are designed to cope with the resistant variants. That are around. Perhaps the brazilian one certainly the south african one and within a few months star boosting with them. This is really demoralizing. When with sort of on the cusp of vaccine. Roll out of here in australia woman. And if i'm just an average person sitting at home listening to corona 'cause what should i take away from these. Iud urging people from getting vaccine that they often no. Because i think it's really important that we all get covered so that shoots so first of all we're going to have a layer of protection. The international evidence is increasingly by the pfizer vaccine prevents transmission. So that means with hotel. Workers bar workers being immunized and hopefully their families to and that's a really important part of the story. We are creating a ring of confidence around the hotel borders. We've also got to institute with the pfizer vaccine. Not the astros vaccine ring vaccination around outbreaks so that we are controlling this any outbreaks there and everybody else immunized with the astra vaccine so that we are turns it into the common colds. We create a very safe situation. The problem is wayne. Do we open up to international travel and windy relax on hotel quarantine and with a country. That's largely covered with the extra astro vaccine. Which is not very effective somewhere doggy. Effective at all against the south african variant certainly in terms of transmission. Then it becomes a very nerve wracking decision to make. So that's why we've got to be planning in twenty twenty one for a booster. Does of vaccine resistant covid nineteen. That's actually a question that we had from john who's in australia who leaves in the us. And he's basically asking now. The australian vaccination program is rolling out. Do we expect. When do we expect the quarantine might be lifted. And what kind of factors go into that decision making so you could be quite cool about it if you think that we are all. We've turned effectively. Destroyed population susceptibility to covid nineteen into the common cold. And it does look as though the it's pretty effective at doing that with you're talking about african variant or indeed other variants. So we're pretty protected so you could say well maybe sooner rather than later but you know. It's just a very nerve wracking theme because we variants from all over the world and we are not donating vaccine to low-income countries. At the rate which will get van covered quickly enough and they will be throwing off variants and those variance will come to look at hiv hiv started around contrast saw in zaire and then you tens of millions of people have been infected with. Its an died. It doesn't matter where these variants arise from. They will spread to other parts of the world. So we've got to get the globe immunized as quickly as possible otherwise. It's very hard to relax just when you thought you had this thing pinned down at escapes again. Norman so so becomes really does become a bit like flu where the first vaccination does protect us to very significant extinct in terms of dying and serious disease. That's why i'm lining up. For whatever vaccine i get and i would urge other people to do the same. But it means that the government has got to not be complacent about this any shape or form and has to star ordering what's called multi vaillant vaccines are trying to ranging them now so that by spring summer of this year. We're getting boosting booster shots with multi valent vaccines that will covers against the current range of resistant. Variants around the world and that swing will open up borders.

What's HIV got to do with a coronavirus vaccine?
"And norman. We had on friday that the vaccine which we talked a couple of times about on this podcast saying that it was a really promising candidate has been canned over the fact that people who received it could have a false positive to an hiv test or particular antibody associated with hiv. And we've had a lot of questions from the audience about this. So let's see if we can demystify. These are really felt like a bolt from the blue. We got kenton asking. Can you please explain how a why false positive hiv tests stopped. The queensland trial doesn't this reflect poorly on the hiv test rather than the vaccination. So that's a great question. Canton anita back up and just do a bit of an explanation. Here you listened to colonel cast regular you know that the vaccines and some of the treatments but the vaccines are targeted against the spike. On the surface of crohn's now the problem with the spike is that it changes shape. And you want it to be exactly the right shape for the lock and key mechanism and therefore it's going to be fixed. It changes shape of. It's not attached to the virus itself. Is that what you meant. That's right kind of swings in the breeze a bit now. How the are ours is the no one in the pfizer vaccines novartis's but vaccines do. This is that they've got a genetic variant of which programs a fixed version of the spike protein. So that's how they do it. How the university of queensland vaccine does it is that they've got something called a molecular clamp. So they kind of clamp into position so that it stays in the right shape for the immune system to recognize as a bona feed your at accurate version of the spike protein. So the immune response that you generate is exactly the immune response you want to be able to control the corona virus. Now you gotta be a clamp clampett. So what is what. What's the clamp. You can't do it for the client in the shade. You go to find some way of doing it. And the way the clamp they use in part is the is part of the human immunodeficiency virus. So it's an envelope protein. I think quite crudely although it's called nimble protein that's how they use it in his co. gp forty one and it clamps down the spike and holds in place so that you've got a stable spike for the immune system to respond to. So that's what they use. Hiv's being studied endlessly and they know exactly how these things work. It wasn't as if they didn't expect some antibodies to this part of the human immunodeficiency virus. I'm told that as part of the informed consent people told they might get a transient rise to to hiv antibodies. So that's what's happened here. Is that more people. Got an antibody response an immune response to this part of the human immunodeficiency virus. And that's what killed the vaccine. Not your had issues but we had the antibody response. Here's the problem when you actually do an hiv test you test. A couple of different parts of the virus that the check for the body response to hiv in different parts of different parts of the virus gp forty one is one of the parts. And there's a couple of others now you've got to get more than one of those to have an absolutely definite positive hiv test if all you come up with is gp forty-one then that's you know that's an equivocal test and they've got a taste you further so the problem is that the communist hiv tests include gp forty one in the suite of antibodies. They pick up when the testing for hiv. So the problem is donate blocks you come kneecap positive and they reject your sample or go to do other other ids tests to nil it. It's not as if it's impossible to get over. But it creates a lot of confusion and difficulty out there and and i suppose they just took a risk benefit equation. There was no harm to individuals. And i think you listen to the press conference. Teagan and some of these antibody rises. Were actually tempering. That that's right. So they said that. All of the vaccine as the older people that receive them. Had some level of positivity to hiv even though before the trials they really thought that it was theoretical risk in quite a lawyer one but they did say that even now at least one of the paypal has gone back to zero and the other seem to be declining so it could be a transient thing and they said that they did actually talk. They've had conversations with the government with health bodies about maybe whether the hiv tests should be changed to give people access to the coronavirus vaccine but they decided that i that would be really hard and be in addition to a public health issue around hiv. There's also a really important public perception issue around the vaccines and they wouldn't want people to be put off using the vaccine because of these perceived link with hiv even though there's absolutely no health risk associated with it at all because it's just a tiny little part of the virus that can't suddenly become the virus it's just literally apar- you're molecular part of the virus which is entirely independent says a huge shame and pamela asks. Why did they try using hiv. In the first place. I think the they at the press conference. That's right and one of the big reason is because hiv is just so well studied. And so this this clamp that was talking about before it was crystallized in hiv. I and so because even though. Hiv's are really scary bars or perhaps because it seems like scary virus. We know a lot about it. We started in a lot of detail and so with something. That's a really nine quantity being able to clip these thing out and put it into the vaccine. Seemed like a really sensible choice and because this was the first human trials of this vaccine. They didn't have an opportunity before now to know that this was going to be a risk the issue that we have only working human so they couldn't use them in the animal bottles and it wasn't really a high priority when the outcome that they're looking for is covid not really itchy. Europe was the last question from lou. Lou is asking the the stories seem to suggest that it was abandoned due to a concern about possible public perceptions rather than any real problem with the vaccine is this right is partly right of. Csl was party to that. They're the commercial partner and they've got a marketing issue to explain why this has the while you get a positive. Hiv test. even though it's false positive is enough of an issue reducing vaccine hesitancy. When you've rush through some of these vaccines and then you add hiv on top of it but there are practical issues. Liu and the pro the probably mostly relate to the blood supply you go into give a blood donation they will do a routine. Hiv test on it. And if it comes up positive and you either rejects the blood donation if let's say for example that fifty percent of the australian population got immunized against the with the vaccine and some of them didn't disappear quickly then. They've got to do further testing on the on the blood supply to make sure that it's just. It is truly a false positives. It creates a practical problem. They it also creates a problem for perhaps life insurance. So these things are solvable. I mean if this was the only vaccine available in the world they probably would continue with it but because it's not they've gone for just saying we're just gonna use the overseas vaccines which kind of brings us to some other news. That came out over the weekend so we heard that the yuki vaccine has been canceled. Which is a real blardone scientists but in addition to that glasgow smithkline vaccine has also been paused or cancelled canceled as been paused. So what they had was. They had a problem measuring the virus or the virus particles you know. Basically the corona vars to the vaccine in the in in their samples and they got that wrong and therefore the shoe or the wrong does in the in the samples and they had to had to go back to the drawing board workout test for the the elements of the corona virus in their vaccine and then reinstitute trials in a few months time. So they haven't candid is just the technical problem early on and often dosage does become a problem in vaccine trials. It's not unknown for vaccines to fall over at the dosage stage. And it's worth remembering here. The in the rush to get these vaccines the bit. That's been compressed. Is what's called the phase two trial. So what's happened here with the q. Vaccine it was the phase one trial which is a safety trial which find out this problem with hiv that it was more common than they thought. Normally then you would go to if it was okay in the phase one to phase two trial which is often largely about finding the right does the best fate whether it's a drug over vaccine and that's what's been compressed and they've tried to do phase one phase two trials together or face to face three trials together and the dosage that s- being not very well sorted i in some of the trials so for example. That's one of the problems with the astros trial in a small subs- subset of the trial. They gave half a does again partly because they weren't they weren't formulating in the way that we thought they wear and also a group that was largely under fifty five and they just didn't have time to sort of that element before they got to phase three and then they're probably going to have to double back and recheck all that well.
More PS5 and Xbox Series X game consoles coming to retailers
"To design so when i first saw the xbox series x and playstation five i tended to prefer the xbox series x simpler design but the longer that the playstation five sits in my living room the more i do tend to like it too in terms of the ports so on the front. We got the usb anc with two more super speed usb ports on the back and then we got the standard admi out which supports up to eight cave variable refresh rink also on the back. There's an ethnic poor and the playstation five also supports wifi bluetooth. Five point one and the brick. Ac adaptor is gone and has been replaced with a simple power record. The goes straight into the wall so that is the outside of the console. Check out the inside and its capabilities. So this is a fast console you know it's up to the standard of desktop.

Menial games are going to run superfast status as the is slightly smaller than the one terabyte drive found within the playstation for pro. And i imagine the hard drive space is going to be a problem. This generation with games. Judy nearing two hundred gigabyte. So so the cpu and ram do have a significant impact on loading times for games. And you're going to notice this immediately. With new games as well as improvements to out games fast travel in games is snappy and we really get a notice this feature in new game. Such as ratchet and clank. We can load into new worlds in a second previous gen games. Like ghost of tsushima lasts for to read it to and destiny to. I've seen significant improvements in loading times and this could have a massive impact on the game design itself so at the moment when things load we see till tips and game hints plus sometimes replaced him winding corridors crawlspaces to help load environments fundamentally. We're going to see some changes but we don't really get a glimpse of the opportunities at the moment because many games have been released across different generations as most likely going to be into twenty twenty two before we see dedicated next generation games designed with all the nepean five features in mind racing is going to be a big deal.

"Libraries have to be struggling to be. I don't know I mean I guess based on the story I just read it. You would guess but one were they ever thriving seventeen when you couldn't find things on the Internet you had to go search for the libraries weren't Capitalistic Venture. Right publicly funded. And the only way they get money is if you like Albert late book. I'm not talking about as a business. I'm talking about the idea that all over America libraries have to be cavern. Ously empty up probably but is that a bad thing. I mean there's nothing like a good stroll to a public library. They'll car walk. Eat all of it. It's great microfiche. I mean is he wrong. You want an empty library. Dan and I'll tell you why right now. Thanks for asking. This is why you want an empty library. What's the number one rule of library? No Sh- yup. That's the number one rule. Too many people less less people more sh boy. That's what you wanted. The library Mike and we finally get to finally get to the myles. Garrett Mason Rudolph take that no one has heard. Espn tried to prop up that story. That was dead for several days. Mike Tomlin came on. I take we. We melt more. The story was dead. It was dead we melt some more out of it was done and then we can show the video again and again and again of any more milk in there. Is there any more milking? They're milking fan. Allegations were made people responded. This is how this works. I know but the Mike Tomlin Several days after the fact appeared on I take because my we were milking. It doesn't provide the platform. He only blinked twice their entire interview Higher than I made that up. But the underwrite yeah here. Here's the take that you're not really hearing anybody admit. I want all this to go away. This is what they're saying behind closed doors at the NFL. Undoubtably to there is no good result here. None of it. There isn't if this thing goes the distance if there's legal If there is a suing of miles Gary Now. Tomlin is saying that he would consider legal action and Mason. Rudolph is saying are in Rudolph's people are saying I keep floating out. He is considering legal action. We said that Mason. Rudolph looks like somebody who would tell you that. His daddy's GonNa sue you but Tom would also said he would want the story to go away and then said he would pursue aggressive legal action. Yeah Michael McCain actually wrote an interesting article as to why Mason Rudolph would probably not actually pursue a legal option. Because if he's the one doing the suing then the burden of proof is on him he actually has to prove that myles. Garrett didn't hear this which is a lot more difficult whereas essentially a tie is a loss for Mason Rudolph at that point and all of us. Nobody really knows what happened. But let's follow this to the end of where it is and there's a big lawsuit and we find out maybe something was said wasn't said societally. I'm not going to like any of these results. Each side is going to be propped up in an election year. To mean something socially that it's an ugly situation there is no good ending here myles. Garrett lied or the I guess the best ending. Israel's thought he heard something that was just a misunderstanding. Maybe something like that but wasn't exactly that but what what what are we. Rooting people are rooting for things here. You WanNa root for Mason Rudolph a white quarterback in the NFL to actually say that word or do you WanNa root for myles Garrett a black player a former number one overall pick lying about this. I can tell which is worse. This is awful. I wanted to go away. I just hope it's buried of Mazen setted. That's that's worse. We all agree on. I mean they're both pretty bad. Though in in these particular times both of them are bad but when Mike says there is no good that comes from it I would say ratings ratings is a good that comes from and it's why some of that milked of some of that gets milked like obviously it's all ugly and obviously none of it. This is what I've told you before whether we're talking about Hulk Hogan shouting the word the ways that we discuss racism in these venues is spectacularly dumb. We just go to the easiest most obvious place. Did he call me that name or did he not call me that name? Should he be using that word or not using that word? Does it end with an A. or an. Are we go to the dumbest places possible in discussing this stuff? As opposed to talking about the stuff that is meaningful racism that means something not something shouted possibly by a quarterback in a rage of frustration. Or you know just in. What does that smollet is that? He's now he's being. He's being indicted now in in Chicago. Like all of this stuff is. It's just empty headed nonsense where people can discuss race comfortably when it's this when it's this stupid. Yeah it's even racist can get behind the fact that saying the N. Word that sort of cut and dried. That's the tipping point on what we can all but that but that's a place you won't find when something like that happens you will find instantaneously for as much complaining as we've gotten over the years here because I talk race too much instantaneously. Everyone's in on the dumb conversation like it when it arrives and it's got a video immediately people know you're okay to talk race there and it's the dumbest possible way to yes but I don't know how to have this conversation. I can tell you I don't want to have this conversation because there is nothing good here to discuss. It's all ugly. Both outcomes either outcome ugly either. Have a guy lie about this story. Right or misheard or lying about what he heard. Or You have a quarterback who actually said that to a block. There's no audio your. Es Curious Yeah. I don't get how discuss this. I just want like the Astros. I WanNa talk about the Astros. That's all I want to discuss this story. I want to ask any of the questions associated with this story. It's horrible.

"Hey I'm Dan Rubenstein. The host of sports wars from wonder on sports wars we dive into the biggest rivalries stories in sports history. And this week. We're starting a new four episode series on one of the great clashes in modern basketball. It's the superman vs the super team. That's right it's Lebron James Versus the warriors. Fun Little Nugget. Did you know that Lebron James and Steph curry were born in the exact same maternity ward at the same hospital to hear all of the ups and downs and get in on all the drama of how their rivalry unfolded subscribe now to sports wars from wondering. What do you think about when Jim Crane has asked on Monday day about his insistence that it's unclear if the signs dealing scheme contributed to the astros world series and 2017? It is unclear. We don't know exactly exactly what happened but put it this way. If the Astros didn't think it was to their benefit then why do they use it right. You also pointed out that uh-huh Jim Crane was asked directly about whatever communication he had with. Aj hinch and Jeff Liu now after Melby Center around this memo tightening the rules walls around sign stealing and he pretty much skirted around the question. One thing that became clear from reading report was that the communication within within the Astros Organization was poor to say the least crane did not ask Luneau more than once he said once but not more than once about various allegations that have been made about the astros through the years that have surfaced in the media. Well before our report he did not call knowing evidently and say you gotta gotTa stop this Luneau enhanced. Meanwhile did not really talk about it either. The report says that Luna did not communicate the rules effectively to the field staff and Hinch for whatever reason did not feel comfortable going alone. No in saying this is a problem with address it so there were communication problems up and down that organization. Is this a black. I on the sport. I I heard you in Bob Costas and a lot of people yesterday. You know talking about how this was a dark day for baseball. It absolutely was a dark day for baseball. And that's how I started my column on Tuesday. I basically said let no one take a bow for this day. It was one of the darker days in Major League history and it was a dark day because team was confirmed to have cheated and for baseball itself. It's not a pleasant circumstance because to me it it was akin to the steroid era not exactly analogous the steroid era. Initially the rules. Were not entirely clear or at least the players didn't think they were clear here and there was no enforcement. They're no penalties. Initially when players were using same type of thing occurred here broad rules lax enforcement until Manfred start clamping down September. Two thousand seventeen and players will press every advantage until they are essentially told they cannot press anymore so for all that it was a dark day. Indeed you'd Never WanNa see your sport in a scandal like this and while we can have different opinions on whether Manfred acted appropriately in the end. It's still something that baseball would never ever have wanted to have had happened. Can thank you so much for joining us and listen. I have after really congratulate you and Evan on this incredible reporting you've been doing these last few months so truly tremendous work and thank you so much. Thank you could either and you can read all of Ken. Rosenthal and Evan Drellich S- reporting on. MLB sign stealing scandal at the athletic dot Com. A few hours after we recorded this interview. The Red Sox announced that they have parted ways with manager. Alex Cora saying quote we collectively decided that it would not be possible for Alex to effectively lead the club going forward quarter also issued a statement thanking the Red Sox and saying he did not want to be a distraction to the organization going forward forward. MLB had decided to hold off on punishing core for his role in the Astros cheating scandal until they finish their ongoing investigation into the twenty eighteen. Red Sox for electron science dealing. Here are some other stories. We're following at the lead. It's never the right time to step away but now is the right time for me. And it's a tough decision. I've thought about it a lot. Carolina Panthers Linebacker Luke keithly announced that he is retiring from the NFL after just eight seasons the twenty eight year old got emotional at times in the online video. I still WANNA play. But I don't think it's the right decision so a seven time pro bowler and the youngest is player ever to win the defensive player of the Year award keithly dealt with a spate of injuries and reasons seasons including three serious concussions in three years longtime and beloved Los Angeles Slash San Diego Charger Antonio Gates is also retiring. Gates is one of the most prolific pass catching tight ends in. NFL history and in two thousand seventeen. He broke the record for career. TD's by a tight end reverse growing and so one hundred twelve career touchdown catches the most NFL tide gates was an iron man in the NFL. And basically a security blanket for Philip rivers who always managed to find him open gates will will end his career with nine hundred fifty five receptions more than eleven thousand receiving yards and one hundred sixteen. TD's meanwhile there are some new and disturbing allegations against Penn State's football program former Nittany Lion. Player Isaiah Humphries filed a federal lawsuit against head coach James Franklin and and four former teammates on Tuesday alleging that he was subjected to sexual hazing and abuse. According to the suit players said they were going to quote Sandusky.

"I'm not trying to excuse. Aj hinch for his neglect in failing linked to stop what was going on but I am sure in his mind. He faced a series of complex decisions. We can say now yes. He made the wrong decisions. It's always easy to judge in hindsight but the same time it was not black and white in his mind from what I can gather can. How hard is it going to be to replace? I Jeff Luna I mean he was the architect of this team's transformation from losing hundred games to winning the world series. It's not easy to find the general manager Andrea any time of year. It's really difficult to find one in January. I'm not sure that they can go get someone from another team. I'm not sure another team would grant permission to lose a valued employee Khloe this point of the year so that's one obstacle there are some unemployed GM's out there they could go after. Perhaps they could do this. Non Traditionally I don't no but you're correct. It won't be easy and Jeff Liu now in his statement responding to the suspension and eventually being fired he kind of through the players under the the bus he literally said I am not a cheater and he said quote. The trash can banging was driven and executed by players What do you make of that kind of a statement achievement? It wasn't the best statement now. He started off by saying he apologized and took responsibility but then he said I'm not a cheater when his team had just been penalized for cheating he is in general. Maj was the general manager of that team and it seemed to a lot of people including me that that was shirking of responsibility and that was not the best way to address the situation. Luneau is a guy that is not very popular in Major League Baseball. A lot of people do not like cow. Oh aggressively he pursued his strategy analytic space strategy a strategy that led to the firings of many scouts departures of other employees. There was some celebration among some people in baseball today to see him get his come up whether that's right or wrong. That's the reality. He faces and if he ever wants to work can the game again as a GM. I imagine it's going to be difficult for him. Can you see a scenario where any players asked to be traded or maybe they use this as a reason to leave in free agency. I mean the core of the Astros lineup is locked up for a few years. George Springer is going to arbitration. I think his contract is set to expire next ear. Springer is a good example Kavita and it would be a good time for the Astros to approach him about a long term extension. It would be good. Pr Or at a time. They needed badly but he's a year away from free agency and as good as the market has been for elite players. He might have wanted to wait anyway. And now with the Astros facing this uncertainty with the team sort of tarnished and looked at differently maybe he wants to go to a new team and start over after this season so those are the kinds of decisions that they're going to face with their players Summerside Long-term Bregman out today among them but as these players reach free agency. They're going to need to decide. Do they want to return or do they want to begin fresh somewhere else.

"Team you you just look at the city of Cincinnati a great fan base you know is Cold Cincinnati but they still come out to the stadium. Try to support this team. And they've been really given nothing nothing to support with Mike Ground could change ground. Get him out of there. That would be different. That's obviously not going to happen. That till is not a coach. Maya's dimension that should have been picked for for that particular job and I don't WanNa Look Joe Borough and find himself in that Kinda desolate situation. I think it's bad. I think it serves to I think it would serve to contaminate emanate him and to come from a program like Lsu with coach. Ron Near you deleted. He is beloved. He is and what happened to go from there to Cincinnati natty bad team but beyond a coach but some teams that just bad because there I personally would rather see him in Miami then Cincinnati Eddie. Let's say something like that but but but do put the question is like I think you'll make Cincinnati relevant. I think they're relevant with. Don't but that's why we're talking about sometimes dropping. The draft can be a blessing because I want to get back to a story. We discussed earlier. The Astros stunning the baseball world yesterday. Firing both manager manager. Aj hinch and GM Jeff Liu now the firings came almost immediately after MLB announced tension. Lou Now would be suspended for the entire twenty twenty season for their roles. The 2017 Astros signed stealing scandal. The Astros also were fine. Five million dollars and will lose their first and second round draft picks in twenty twenty and twenty twenty. Twenty one stephanie. Do you have a problem with. MLB's punishment for the Astros do not originally did yesterday upon learning of am about. Tom and was a bit strange. You do it at three two three o'clock in the afternoon and as a result what you WANNA do you WANNA turn around and say okay. Maybe the story adopt because the National National Championship game is that night. But as you hit the details I gotta tell you remember crane electing the fire the manager and the GM that's not MLB's appeased decision. This should have been more than a one year ban. One could particularly argue on me to sit up there and to literally have technological equipment installed. uh-huh that enables you to steal signs that premeditation banging on the can on garbage cans to indicate to a player. What pitch is about to be thrown except guess what ladies and gentlemen that means? It wasn't just a manager. It means it wasn't just a bench coach. Who by the way tried to deny right or or the general manager rather trying to deny that he knew anything about it which is utterly ridiculous? The bottom line is this goes down to the players themselves math mass. How will we look at some of these hitters now for the Houston Astros? How we look at some of the players who clearly benefit from this stuff and then you got? Alex Coeruleus a bench coach in Houston at the time. He goes to Boston the very next year and the very next year Boston wins the world series with him as a manager. What you look at all This as far as I'm concerned they both deserve to be fired. I think an argument could be made. It depends on what they find in their investigation about the red sox. If they find anything about the Red Sox tits that's emblematic of what they discovered in Houston. Alex Cora's got to go. Then you've got to look at Carlos Beltran new manager for the next. He was appointed Houston at the moment and Tom. If he's found to be involved all right. Do you got to deal with him. If he's not bound to be involved you got at least let him know that will be zero tolerance policy where he's concerned. If you're the New York mets this is catastrophic and jobs deserve to be loss from it and I believe that the Houston Astros astroid. I'm talking about the trophy. Should be taken away from their facilities. I saw all. I'm saying I'm not saying it'd be giving it a dog. Yeah but you're not. You're not a champion if competed. Give us that Dan World. We can't take the parade. They also money back. We will take this because you don't deserve. They also are big markets fourth largest market country and the value information differently than I believe so they value information differently than we're trying to figure it out what York Lci. Hey Chicago Houston is for. I think I think after Chicago. Anyway the point is the value information so much that that that they obviously value it more than ethical considerations. I mean clearly but to vacate a championship like we saw what happened. It had it. It occurred it occurred and they were aided by cheating most likely it like without the cheating who knows if they win but the fact is this is what happened in terms of the punishment initiative. I think it was stiff. I think losing your top two picks in the draft as as much better as much improvements been made it identifying count in the amateur draft. Losing in your top two picks and consecutive drafts hurts the Astros going forward. No question remember Pete. Rose was banned for life for gambling. Yup How is I. Don't think he should have been either enough light. But let me ask you a question. How is this any better? I mean it's it's issue also by the way waiting on the punishment for handed bound for the Patriots really quickly final hiring here the browns hiring Stefanski. He was the a long time coordinator for the Vikings Steven A.. How do you feel about that higher? Sunday's performance notwithstanding because their offense was incredibly predictable against San Francisco. I mean Saturday. That is the bottom line is. He's been a coordinator for awhile. I'm happy he got the opportunity. But it didn't escape me that there were five and L. Coaching openings. Now one single black. That man got the job. I don't have much to add to that Stephen as been on that. And he's absolutely right. What you but but in this case this is not a coordinator skipping following the pipeline as a grievous as the judge then the question is what's the identity entity of those in the pipeline? That's a separate issue. No question all right. We'll leave it on that note guys. Stephen you want to give a quick go. Tigers Stewart was so weak. Thanks for listening to the PODCAST.

"After some of the concerns in two thousand seventeen. That had nothing to do with the astor's actually early Major League Baseball did institute new concerted guidelines about electric sign stealing right. This happened actually before the eighteenth postseason and then really was implemented for nineteen and baseball said in a statement. It released us that there were complaints from a lot of teams about a lot of other teams and they were hearing all kinds of stuff stuff. They took it upon themselves to require a few different things. One was an eight second delay in all feeds in the Ballpark so the team could not look at what was going on and live and decode immediately in that real time sense also. There were additional personnel stationed in video rooms major league baseball officials so that if teams engage agan those mlb people could see that firsthand and even dugouts in the postseason or personnel. He'll it'll be so they did take the measures and yet there is still a feeling among many in the sport this stuff goes on. And what's what's the Astros reaction been to this. They came out with a statement essentially saying that they're going to conduct an investigation in conjunction with MLB and basically basically go forward that way now. What they said was regarding the story posted by the athletic? The Astros Organization has begun investigation in cooperation. With Major League Baseball. It would not be appropriate to comment further on the matter at this time. Their General Manager Jeff Lewis spoke to reporters and said essentially that but he also said that. I don't believe there are two thousand seven world series titles should be tarnished reason. We won the world series in two thousand. Seventeen is Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman. And Joseph Berliner a lot of great layers ears and they do things the right way and we as an organization. That's what we aspire to do as well as you mentioned sign. Stealing has been a part of baseball for a a century and even electron exiled stealing while against the rules has been suspended from other teams. I didn't have an didn't have enough to report which teams teams were doing. Exactly what but this is not simply an astros issue now how far and how extensive it goes with other teams that. I don't know exactly for sure. We're but teams have accused each other. That's going to two thousand seventeen. The Yankees and red sox had the apple-watching feud is entering the digital age with the Yankees accusing using the socks of using an apple. Watch to help steal and relay their catcher hand signals. The Red Sox ultimately refined by Major League Baseball for use of of an Apple Watch in illicit way and that is the last time. A team has been penalized for this kind of conduct. The Yankees were fine to at that time but for another are Kinda thing and last year in the playoffs there was the situation with the Indians in the Astros where the astros were kind of engaging counter surveillance the reigning world series. He's champs are accused of possibly having a mole next to the Indian's dugout. The man in question was removed several times for taking pictures and texting and now the train and the Indian cried foul and it never really got anywhere but it was a big incident at the time so this has been going on. Yes and some of the Astros I don't but not there are other teams that are suspected. You've heard everything from the man in center field with the white shirt signaling somehow And and using technology to do that to a camera in Centerfield with an ipad attached with the ipad breaking down a pitchers grips uh-huh to determine whether he is tipping and then that information being conveyed all kinds of talk all kinds of suspicion. It's tough tougher. Baseball spoke prove as one person points out in the article in part because if you come forward an accuser team well maybe your own hands dirty. And that's the problem right. Can you just tell us in twenty seventeen from the people that you talk to you. How open this was at the Astros that people were talking about it or doing this openly in within the team the team open it was? I can't say for sure because I wasn't there wasn't in it but as we reported it was certainly discussed internally discussed among players among different personnel uniform. It was a tough topic because it was being employed. It's just the most being employed you know you talk to a manager and he basically said that this was an issue that permeates the whole league and that the League has done a poor job of policing this so in the course of this investigation. And I'm not asking you to speculate on what the League will do but what could come out of this investigation. I'm not sure we know that the red sox were find in two thousand seventeen into the apple. Watch so I imagine if they found the Astros committed wrongdoing that baseball could issue a fine to them. I don't know that it would go any further than that that but we don't know necessarily all the details here. How far up the chain? It went as far as new Federa so yet. Tough to speculate because you just don't know where the responsibility lies what they're going to find out anything if anything will even come of this but we have seen a fine levied in the case of the Red Sox and we'll just have to see and monitor what happens here all right.

"Not not many teams got that opportunity so not easy right now for sure look at sars houston goes it was it was a great game they did everything they were supposed to do they were the exact team they were in the in the offseason that in the regular season and that's basically what one in for them yesterday nick what was the key to the astros waning our opinion missed opportunities by their opponent i mean we we will and we can talk about you darvish and whether or not he was giving a little extra unintentional information to the astros but first thinning dodgers first and second one out 0 run second inning first and second one out zero runs third inning first and second nobody out zero runs fifthinning first and second one out nobody would know runs so i mean can with runners in scoring position to the for tan relegate glaring stat that was do not want to end the serious i that's what you're going to no i was gonna sales oh quicker way to make the point i was making i probably should have justly of that hours i mean that was a huge point i mean the and i understand that five one feels like okay so wasn't a close game there were five non the whole time but if after the first inning when vasser's put up a to spot if you just score one and it's two one if after the second inning when the astros have five runs if you've taken advantage of a couple of those opportunities and all of a sudden it's five two two or five to three i think things go differently especially because houston didn't have confidence in their bullpen so i i think it was missed opportunities in game seven the one game at this world series to me that wasn't really exhilarating from start to finish i'll go back to game number five.
