"Blue. Jays dugout has corrupted as their great Battista at add to that track. Suddenly it is six to play for Toronto. Unfortunately there's more debris on the field and that needs to stop right so poor Dave Flemming. Who is such a great guy? Such a great broadcaster. I shouldn't say poor Dave Flemming But he he was doing the Blue Jays Ranger series I was doing the cubs and cardinals And the cubs and cardinals ended in four games the night before what was game five of the of the Blue Jays and Rangers. And I'm in a cab on the way back to the hotel from Wrigley and John Martin who you know very well John John Martin calls me and says What are you doing tomorrow night and I said I'm going to the ball? I'm from Toronto as you know but for the listeners. Who Don't know I'm going to the ball game with Kids and my dad. I don't think my mom was with my kids. And my dad and chief says do you WANNA do the game I said. What do you mean you want to do? The game and he goes Fleming pulled off. He's gotTa do a college football game on TV. We need somebody to do the game in Toronto. I said well of course I'll do the game. So that's how I found out I was doing the game. I think that. Also got my momma tickets to the game. She took my ticket so it was my dad. My mom and two of my boys who went to the game so I I get home the next morning. I'm trying to cram like I wasn't on that series and at the time I wasn't doing blue games I knew the Blue Jays well but I wasn't doing legitimate cram on Texas. Get to the Ballpark Rick. Sutcliffe is the analyst terrific. We had A. We had a great time. So we're doing the game and Texas is leading and then the crazy play in the top of the seventh inning happens when Russell Martin tries to throw the ball back to the mounted hits Shin. Choose Bat and I think it was Reuben. Netto door comes home with the go ahead run and And I mean it is ugly ugly ugly ugly at Rogers Centre. A very as you know a very proud Canadian it was an ugly moment as it turns out that got the call right just we didn't know in real time what was going on but they were throwing bottles and I could see bottles plastic bottles but coming from the top deck above me landing in the lower deck like kids down there and it it was really really ugly so we get to the seventh inning stretch and I text my parents and my son's all for them on a group chat and I say listen if they lose the game. I'm afraid what's going to happen outside. I think there might be a riot. Stay in your seats. I will come get you and I wasn't trying to be melodramatic or anything it. It's the ugliest thing I've ever seen in the sporting event and I said stay in your seats you know my parents are older and I said I'll come get you in. We'll figure this out. Then we go to the bottom of this and you know what happens Air Air Air About Teesta hits the homer and I text I. I know I texted them like even before he crossed home plate. And I said we're good. I'll see guys everything's fine now And we all met up at home and and everything was okay. But it is the most Electrically charged moment. I think I've ever been at in a Ballpark The range of emotions from the anger in the top half to the home run in the bottom half the time the Blue Jays hadn't been in the in the playoffs in twenty two years and there is a feeling among some north of the border that if sports like baseball basketball get a chance to keep Toronto out they will because they don't draw ratings in the US everybody wants New York La Chicago. That now is subscribe to that theory. I'm just giving you a little back story on how some people feel your so. Some people felt look this crazy. Play rule against the Blue Jays. Keep them out and You know they were upset that most of their games were happening during the day. Playoff Games that. They weren't getting many prime time slots like there was a lot of emotion. A lot of history of of anger in the ballpark and then For about cease to hit the home run. It was like a generations worth of frustration. Came out in that moment as Teesta rounded the bases. And isn't it funny? How the Bat flip was viewed by some as the sign of the apocalypse. That's less than five years ago. And now not only. Are they tolerated in some circles their celebrated and of course it was a great? You know two year stretch for the Blue Jays. Fifteen and sixteen A group and a lot of swagger a Lotta personality that gave fans a lot to cheer about. It's funny because I look at that bat flip and I am now and I think that was a turning point in the conversation. I know about the way that he did. It was immediately interpreted as being disrespectful by the Rangers. I just thought he was reacting to this incredible hit in the moment in the moment. How did you feel about it? He well I didn't see it in the moment. I'm watching the ball. I saw it on replays. Maybe thirty sixty seconds later I one hundred percent agree with you then and now and again trust me you know who to all the good folks who are listening to your podcast. If you were in the ballpark you would have been at event. Unlike any other you had been at. And that's why I tried to give a bit of the back story about the frustration and the feeling You know it was. These two teams hated each other. It was the first time in the playoffs in twenty two years. It was unbelievable. How much emotion That there was going on in that game and and I know definitely just reacted in the moment The network I worked for for the Blue Jays. Sports Net did a watch party of that game a few weeks ago and some of our sports host were on and Battista came on and was asked the very question that you just asked me. And he didn't plan it he didn't it was just all that emotion In the moment and then it got out of hand next year and I don't want to get into that got out of hand during the regular season between the two James next year but You know get your. You're picking Very Fun. Memorable moments for me From baseball and again when I get asked like what games do you remember the most as a born and raised Toronto Guy with my parents and Suns at the baseball game? That Easter backflip game is is right there with David freeze. Well we're having some fun with these memories and starring really terrible member. You had to work with Terry Francona. That must tito is one of a kind. And that's an understatement. If that's possible. And we only had him for one year as you know and we all knew that he would go back to managing and he did But what What a fun ride it was. It was Tito and Orel hershiser right. It was to an oral. Who are together. I believe that one year. And you know I got a crash course in in Tito in the spring A number of things but you know getting lost in in neighborhoods. He'd been in a hundred times before he and I ran out of gas again. Claire Smith or second mentioned here. Tito and Claire and I tried to drive back to our hotel. We had a kind of a dinner meeting crew. We were down in Fort Myers and we're driving backup. I ninety five I'm sorry I seventy five on the west side I seventy five To get to our hotel which was before North eight ten miles north and we ran. Tito's driving I'm in the passenger seat and we ran out of gas and I remember. Tito saying he goes. Hey Hey Shulman we've got a problem. What's the problem he goes? We're OUTTA gas and I said well we're like we're like to get away like what's the problem. And he starts like stomping his foot on the gas pedal and he goes no man. You don't understand. We are out of gas and we it off to the side of the freeway And we got out. Claire got in the front seat to the steering and got on the steering wheel and and got behind the steering wheel and Tito and I are pushing an SUV up. I seventy five to get it onto the shoulder near an exit. Both sweating buckets absolutely sweating buckets And this was. I remember about one hundred yards into this. I turned to Tito and I said. Hey Tito listen. I work with vital all winter. Like in all kinds of crazy stuff happens like all the time I said. Is this what it's going to be like working with you this summer? And he paused anyone. Yeah pretty much with a big smile on his face and he's Joe as you know the most likable lovable guy that you've ever met. I have never and will never hear anybody say a bad word. about Terry Francona. And it was. It was a fun year. It was a you could have done a sitcom on that season. Oh no doubt about stories here all right. Last one the Joe Carter Homerun. You kinda teased it. In a note you sent me what he got there so This is way back. Obviously I was young. I was twenty six and I was the pre and post game guy for the Blue Jays radio network so during the game. I didn't have any responsibility. So I finished my pre-game show. This is game six of the world series. It's in Toronto. Up Three Games to two so I was in the stance I got tickets for the game and I was in the stands down the right field line and they're losing Going to the bottom of the ninth inning. Right they're losing six to five to the phillies and Phillies win. There's a game seven and I'm the post game Guy And at the time we did our show from the lobby of what was known then as the Skydome hotel there was in his hotel out in Centerfield as a lot of people know there and we would do a live post game. Show from the lobby. Had kinda crazy actually and so. I'm sitting down the right field line we go to the bottom of the ninth phillies are leading six to five. I gotta go like. I'm on air two minutes after last pitch. So there was this freight elevator that we could use because we knew that you know the people who operated it so I kind of went underneath. Showed my pass when underneath the stands went to the freight elevators. The quickest way to get up to the three hundred level in center field where the where the set was and it's one of these big old elevators posture. Where you like the big? You know metal doors. I closed from the side and then come top and bottom. You know secular in a horror movie or something like and it. It's stuck it just stuck for a couple of minutes. Something went wrong and I'm in. I can't see anything it's just me. And the and the person who's operating the elevator and all of a sudden. It's like a volcano erupts. And and I know they've won the world series but I don't know what's happened. 'cause I'm in.

"How can they actually come out of that late? March early April discussion and say One side says this is done. We're getting are pro rated full salaries. The other side Says No. This is still open for discussion. I that boggles my mind right there that they haven't even decided if this has been decided. And I gotTa Tell Ya Jesse the way this is playing out. I you and I both know that because the players are on the front line. They're the ones in front of the stands. When this is over and fans go back into the stands the players are the ones who are going to take the brunt of this when you know Tony Clark Scott. Boras put out statements when the owners leaked the way they did on Monday. That does the the backlash comes down. The players in it also hurts the product. Because I mean you see it I see it on. Social media feeds reaction to these public fight over money. You have fans basically saying a pox on all their unbolt. Our houses along those lines. I forgot to mention my sixth and final point from the players side is that they are the ones taking the risk as you just said that the safety and health risks and I've heard people push back on that like wait a minute I've been furloughed What you know the whole millionaires thing. You know why they're winding but wait a minute if you've been furloughed and they ask you to go back to work and take a health risk your going to expect your full pay. You've already missed half your salary as you've been for kind of the players now they ask you to go back to work and take a risk you're gonNa want your pay and that's what the players are facing. You're asking us to go back to work. At fifty percent salary. Take a health risk health risk for the people around us and cut us more. That argument absolutely rings. True to me. That's a very good argument Your we're asking you to be the country's entertainment and we're all going to be safe watching you guys and you and we want you to take a little bit more of a pay cut that that makes a lot of sense to be sorry to interrupt you know. I I I mean the bottom line. Is that if there's going to be baseball this year? The two sides have to work together and yesterday in the events of yesterday and the public statements and the leaking is the first indication that for me is I went to bed last night. I was more disturbed about the possibility of baseball than I had been at any time before because of the way the two sides are working with each other. All right JESSI. Thanks for doing it in there. Are you got a. We'll talk to buster take care. Kitchen was the voice of Sunday night. Baseball for seven years and a great teammate and he continues to do play by play for ESPN radio and for television and for the Toronto Blue Jays. And Dan Great to talk with you. Great to talk with YOU ABOUT STRAP. Hope you and your family are doing okay. I'd love to see your face but we're not zooming where we're podcasting but hearing your voice is the next best thing. Yeah that's really polite. And now they just lying especially because I had that brutal celt haircut that I did last week I know what your advice would be. Cut It all off. You know what? Actually this is one of the few times where the ball guys are saying. We win like I that for better or for worse. I look exactly the same as I always do. Because every two days I shaved my head so once this is all over. I'll show you how to do it properly. If you wanted to. Cut Yourself a couple of times. Then you'll tough and you'll be fine. You'll appreciate this because it the other day after I went on television and I talked about the problem that I had with my hair last week. When I I caught up with a set of clippers up the right side of my head and then I realized Dan that I had put the guard on and yeah so that was ugly and I want up looking like a dictator from North Korea. You know I could be a double right now if I wanted to. And I got a text from our friend Aaron Boone. He goes man. What happened there and I said Yeah. I look like you know the North Korean dictator and he texted back and sort of classic Buni fashion. You know what you look like. You look like the the dictator from North Korea like bony. That's what I just text I. So Aaron's errands a little off his needling game during the pandemic as well. He's usually sharper than that. Yeah exactly he was like Aaron with the next time busters start in the back if you make a mistake in the back. It's not as noticeable. Don't start on the side. Let me tell you my two kids once. Twenty years old one is fifteen. They're thrilled with how it looks. They right thanks for joining us for storytelling. E sent me some notes some working for my notes and we start with this. I had forgotten that you did. The Steve Bartman game on. Espn radio what he got. What are your memories about that game? Well the first thing I remember and you'll be able to visualize this if you're up on the on the level of the broadcast booth said Wrigley Field and you go out to the back part where you get the notes or where the media eats or if you walk to to the the rams that go up and down you can look out and see Wrigley Ville below the cubs were up three games to two on the MARLINS. There were all kinds of uniformed officers on horses and at three hours before the game. Buster they were thousands of people at Wrigley Ville thousands and it was like Mardi Gras. They thought it was over. At why not? They had mark prior going in game six and Kerry wood going in game seven and they were at home and they were ready to move on to the world series and it was like a party and their leading three to nothing going into the eighth inning and if memory serves. I think there was one out in one on when Louise Custodio came up and he hits you know the story at the fly ball down the left field line noises Lou comes over jumps in my judgment reaches into the stands art touches. The ball away doesn't catch it in the Marlins scored eight runs in the game win the series Etcetera Etcetera. But in the moment in which happened right at that moment it was as if all of the air got sucked out of the balloon. Oxygen went out of the ballpark. It was like you were in a vacuum. You couldn't hear anything and the first thought that came to me was So this is how it's going to happen this time and I think every cub fan immediately like sobered up and said You gotta be kidding me and the Marlins go on you know. There's the ground ball that that The plays made and then Mordechai doubles up the alley and scores three and a and and we know what happens. But I you know. I've never seen ever ever ever in twenty five years of doing baseball and basketball. I've never seen the energy change quicker in a ballpark. Then in that moment In two thousand and three Wrigley Field because they expected the worst to happen right instantly. Yeah and let me ask you this in the moment that had happened. Did you anticipate that there would be the level of scrutiny of St Barbara? That they've turned out to be not in that moment but it wasn't long after we saw him being. I don't WanNA use escorted in the wrong sense like you and dragged out of there. He was for his own benefit. He was accompanied. Maybe that's a better word accompanied by a couple of people security people from the ballpark. If I'm remembering correctly we didn't know where he was going. But you know the camera was on him. I was doing. Espn radio. But I assume Fox was the network. Tv network there so the camera was on them constantly. Like between every pitch between every bitch and you could see the look on his face. You could see How horrified he was that he had been involved in this and then some security personnel from the ballpark came and accompanied him out of his seat. Down a tunnel and we didn't see him again for the of that night so in that moment no a minute or two later yes and again because it was the cubs and because they hadn't won since one thousand nine hundred eighty two Cetera et cetera. So there there was just so much on the line and you you felt terrible for. I and I continue to feel terrible for them. Here's a guy who went to. The ballpark is big cub fan. Probably as you know is anybody around and if you look at photos or videos again and you watch other people. A DOZEN. People are reaching for the ball. Fate just found him and it's all a little bit better now of course because they won the world series in two thousand sixteen. That didn't do any people you know from two thousand three to two thousand sixteen. Unfortunately a lot of you know lifelong cub fans you know may have not live long enough to see the world series in two thousand sixteen but it does get a little bit better with them having one but it was it was crazy. I I mean I. I been I duNNo. Fortunate is the right word. I've been there for some crazy stuff on and off the field in both of the Sports Field Court both sports that I do but that one is right up near the top of the list. I didn't realize how bad it was going to be until when I was reading stories online that night there were published in major papers in Chicago. They not only publish his name but they published where he lived up. I was immediately journalists. Like Oh my God. This poor guy. Moving forward is going to have so much autumn. I've always respected the fact that you know despite sure plenty of requests from ESPN other news outlets he's maintained Y- his private space when the cubs Wanted to invite him back to give a championship after they wanted. Two Thousand Sixteen never changed that stance. I respect that too and and I I don't look I don't look online to see if you can google them and five like does he. Does he go to the grocery store? Does he go to the movies? Does he go to the mall. Does he play in a softball league? I I don't know the answer to those questions I I just hope he's able to live somewhat of a a a normal life. You know you're used to read years ago. He grew a beard changed his appearance. A little bit. I I hope that anybody who bumps into him who recognizes him. As is you know doesn't doesn't take it out on him. In the vast majority of people would have done exactly the same thing. That's department did all right. May I two thousand eleven you and I were in Philadelphia Bobby? Valentine was working Sunday baseball with you with John Kruk..

"Jesse ROGERS COVERS BASEBALL FOR ESPN AND JESSE. Based on what you've heard what's been the reaction on the players side that leaked out a proposal that we heard about yesterday. Well first off. They're not thrilled that any of this has leaked or as much of the scenarios have leaked out over the months of being on one side. It's just talk it's just five fodder on the other side. You know what happens when these things league all all of a sudden the texts and the and the Calls start going back and forth and I talked to Andrew Miller and Chris. I netted over the weekend About this and they're on the executive board they just feel like there's just been too much out in the public and of course now. We finally have a definitive proposal. That is out there. And they're okay with with the games played in travel and all that. They still don't know exactly how they're going to stay. And keep their coaches say and their unpire safe and everybody around them safe their families when they go back home. They haven't heard that just yet can. Obviously they are sort of ready for a big time negotiation when it comes to the compensation angle of it. All Buster I. I did get a hold of some talking points. That players are going to use when they discuss these things with the league. If you want me to go through a few of them for you know and this all has to do this all has to do with with compensation first and foremost in this boggles my mind that they they can't even agree on this. The the the fact that the players think they decided this in the previous agreement at the beginning of the season that they would be forwarded that one hundred seventy million dollars and then if they played that would be an advanced remember. That's not just free money. That's an advance on their paycheck and then if they play it'll be a pro rated full salary. They think it's been negotiated. The owners say no. I boggles my mind. That both sides can't even agree on the on what they agreed upon In earlier at the end of March or April there. So that's number one. They're gonNA argue number two Is obviously that? They've already given up fifty percent of their salary. That's obvious number three and this is the most and one of the most important points is the idea that they are not a salary. Cap League they do not get extra revenues so the player the players don't win baseball revenues increase and they don't think they should have to deal with the losses when when they play without band this year they feel like Hey. There are years where You guys make more money. We don't see it at least one year where you're not gonNa make as much money. We feel we shouldn't have to take the brunt of that And then the the the League may claim that this is the only possible way to have a season if the players taken additional reduction while according to the players data the players financial data. They don't see it that way. They believe owners will still turn a profit without fans in the stands while still paying pro rated full salaries to the players. So those are the talking points. They're gonNA make delete now again that there might be a difference in in in financial data. One side. Says WE'RE GONNA LOSE MONEY. The other side Says No The extra postseason teams will help you. You can you can pay us even without fans and still be okay. So that's what's going to happen as soon as maybe today. I WANNA double back on. You mentioned about the safety concerns. And that's what your story over the weekend really focused on from your conversations with Andrew Miller and with Chris I natta an I heard this a lot from agents last night it while a lot of the conversation on Monday was about the financial terms between the two sides ultimately. It's GONNA come down to how those questions about. Maintaining safety are going to be answered. I would encourage everybody to go to Sean doolittle's Twitter feed because he sent out a number of questions and I think that those will reflect a lot of the conversation that the players are going to want to have What did you learn talking with those two guys? Well one thing not necessarily from them but I did learn yesterday and this isn't anything even you know you could write down on paper just yet but think of it as a general sort of idea. Is that players and maybe others. I only heard about players would get tested three times a week. So that's kind of starting point now again. None of this has sort of leaked from the propose. I I have a feeling buster. They don't know exactly what's going to look like today but they will in a month. I think I mean the reason. We don't have details on the safety issues. I don't think they know exactly what they're going to do right now. Because the the world's going to look different in a month but there's no doubt that that that there are questions about guys with underlying conditions and they're big point. Is the people around them. They understand most of their guy other than being. You know maybe sign line from their team. They feel like okay. We're young we'RE WE'RE GONNA be okay and I'm used that in quotes because young people can get severely sick too but it is those umpires. It is those coaches it. Is those managers a lot of them? Who are older is going back to their families And and so. Just say something positive. I do think they like the concept. This plan rather than being quarantined in Florida Arizona. I think they like the centralized travel and and like that but they still don't have answers on safety worried about guys with diabetes and asthma. They did wonder about you. Know guys like Anthony Rizzo or John. Les Who had cancer you know maybe a decade ago but from what? I've heard that may not be a big issue. Obviously if you're going through chemo. If you went through chemo recently. That's a different story but asthma. Diabetes are big question marks as well and I don't I don't know the answers to those And again it's right now. It's a broad outline in terms of safety. Something I heard yesterday. Maybe players getting tested three times a week. Yeah part of the problem on this whole issue of safety Jesse is that it does feel like the context changes every hour lake And I know that the among agents I've spoken with among some players a part of their questions are okay. How are we going to get the data about where the hot spots are where the numbers of infections of gone up How are we going to monitor that? And those are things that constantly shift You know the the question of testing an aunt and how you have access to that those are things that seemed to be constantly shifting I do think and I'm curious. If have the same sense from talking with the players. Is that whatever plan they come up with? I think they also have to account for the players. Who say you know what? I'm not interested in doing that. That to me whether a family situation and lying health condition There are going to be players who are basically going to decline. Some of them might be in a position where they've made the bulk of their money in their careers You know given the uncertainty of the situation wouldn't surprise me if they were to go. I'm just not gonNA to participate and then the question comes in. What do you do with their contracts you know? Do they get service time for this year? Like was negotiated early. This year is a contract. Subject to to being voided which under typical circumstances if a player refuse to report You know that would be possible. They would have to certainly negotiate exceptions for that again are have you heard or do you feel the same way that I do that. There will be at least some players who will say you know what that. It's just too problematic for me to participate definitely definitely a possibility. I mean we're talking about twelve hundred players in the middle of a situation. That's unheard of right. I mean we never come across something like this before and there's absolutely differing opinions. I mean over the over two over the course of these two months. I've talked to play players. That just are on opposite ends. Just yesterday I couple players Sort of pushed back on even their their their executive board. Let's let's get out there. Let's go let's go. I mean you know. Obviously they want to hear the good answers about safety but they're they're more willing to sort of push it than than other players and I. I think you're exactly right. I mean I okay so I talked to to to veterans and they didn't say this exactly the same way but they were. Both veterans would made a lot of money. One was like You know what I what you just said I I could wait a year. I mean we I why. Why Fudge this and manipulate it and just you know have any risks at all. I could wait a year. The other was like I'm Kinda towards the end of my career. I let's let's get out there. I want to get out there. I don't know maybe it's my last year. That kind of talk. Those were to Kinda similar players with differing viewpoints and to get that up and down. I mean definitely the younger singer single guys that kind of stuff. Let's go I'm ready? I'm ready a bunch of them that are still in Arizona or Florida. I feel like are in that mode. Let's go the one a lot of them that have gone home. I feel like a little bit more like okay. Let's get this right otherwise let's go back to. Let's just you know. Cancel and go to twenty twenty one. So you're exactly right. There's so many different viewpoints on this thing and I mean I really haven't been in touch with the guys that Maybe Latin American guys that might have a completely different viewpoint. You know I I'm not even sure on that end of things so there's GonNa be some pushback but ultimately I think the players will be unified by by by the fact that they're not necessarily gonna like everything they hear from the League so they're probably GONNA fight the League first and then maybe have some internal discussions about all of this stuff out of Jesse gotta say this thing is so complicated and it's so fragile and as they say the context changes in day to day according to the you know the health conditions in a state or in a city. I cannot believe that these two sides let this get in the way that it has. I think they've lost their frigging minds. You know on the players on on both sides. I think they cannot leave that. It's this public You obviously on owner said yesterday. I cannot believe the details of their proposal leaked before they actually got it into the hands of the players. And let's face it. That probably was done at least in some corners. Perhaps to bully the players in public opinion. Look here's our offer. We're going to give them fifty percent and you know at a time. When so many people are out of jobs? The players have an opportunity to to make a lot of money and so the fact that that was handled that way so old school in my opinion so inappropriate and on the other side and the players side. You know to have Tony Clark. And Scott Boras come out issuing statements and drawing negotiating lines in the sand that helps nobody shut up. Get into a room. Talk through your problems. This is not a classic. Cba negotiation the context is so different because of all the job losses because of all the financial losses because of all the lives that are lost. People do not want to hear about a public fight over money between owners and players. There needs to be collaboration. They need to get a committee together. Were they run through all the potential issues? You know someone like Andrew Miller or Sean doolittle can speak for the players behalf about questions about health concerns. They can talk through the financial issues. The owners basically can show the players. Okay this is what we have but to have all this public conversation in talk about a salary cap. Stop. It's not a salary cap. It's a one year away to deal with. What is obviously a tremendous loss of finances on the owner side in if the two sides actually want to get something together and play baseball this year they better figure out how to work together and do it behind closed doors and come up in agreement that way sorry for grabbing the microphone. That way I just. I'm appalled by what's happened. What do you think oh I I I'm I'm with you. I'm absolutely with you. I mean I think this is why and I think the players feel like. They're just always behind the eight ball just fighting fighting the machine a little bit so to speak. I think this is why netted. Andrew Miller went on the record with me just days before this proposal became public. I think they they're trying to they to get their point out there but you you. You're not wrong. I mean I think people are like Okay Scott Boris with the OP eds. And you know all this public Rhetoric from him is enough on that end and and I Yeah I think.

Senate starts debate on US role in Yemen
"Trump appointed head of the World Food Program. The war in Yemen is currently threatening starvation of fourteen million people. Tens of thousands of Yemenis are already dead. You've seen the images like these children who are starving to death before very is. It is the worst humanitarian crisis in the world right now. And right now you and I in every American is facilitating this horror. Our government is supporting the Saudi war in Yemen. The Bartman the killing and the starvation of children because why exactly what is the argument in favor of doing what we're doing? We haven't heard that argument in the house of representatives. In fact, you won't be hearing an argument for that in the house of representatives. And that's because speaker Ryan today was to cowardly to have an actual debate. And vote on this matter to. Cowardly to let lawmakers stand up in the well, the house and say, yes, I think we should keep starving these children because it's so important that we support the same government that just butchered journalist, Jamal kashogi. Now. Of course, they're probably aren't too many lawmakers willing to stand up and say that since there is no domestic political constituency to continue starving children of Yemen. So instead, the cowardly but perfectly in character action. Speaker Paul Ryan on his way out the door was to use the rules committee to stick a rule attach it to the farm Bill a rule to strip out any debate. And consideration of the War Powers resolution, which would have given lawmakers the opportunity to call the end of the US support of the Saudi Saudi-born Yemen that rule passed now early Jewish six to three with eighteen Republicans voting against the bogus rule. Republican Thomas Massie of Kentucky calling speaker Ryan tactic despicable five Democrats provided the majority voting for the. Rule again a rule to prevent debate on US support of Saudi Arabia's warring Yemen here, the five Democrats who helped attached this monstrous rule to farm Bill. They apparently think it's all right to use the farm Bill to help continue starving. The Chiltern of Yemen. And you have to ask again, why why do they think that we don't know since they wouldn't actually debate? It are their constituents who get up in the town halls of these five Democrats say what I need from. You congressman is to continue bombing and starving children of Yemen into death and submission, highly doubt, it so why ask again, are we doing this in the Senate least there's a real debate going on about this and are real effort to vote against the US. Support the Saudi war in Yemen. We're gonna talk to someone who's led that fight. Senator. Chris Murphy joins me next. Saudi Arabia can push us around like they have over. The course of the last several years in particular, the last several months, then it sends a signal lots of other countries that they can do the same thing the big and murder US residents and suffer almost no consequences. They can bomb civilians with our munitions and suffer. No consequences were the major partner in this relationship. And it's time that we start acting like it. And if this ministration isn't going to act like then this congress has to act like it Senate right now is on track to pass a historic resolution that would not only end the US military involvement and Saudi Arabia is ongoing Warren Yemen, but also serve as an unprecedented rebuke to both current Saudi regime, and the Trump administration Senator Chris Murphy, democrat from Connecticut and one of the original co sponsors of the resolution told me earlier tonight, just what's at stake. So we got sixty votes to proceed to debate that's pretty significant number. That's a lot of Republicans. And now, we'll have a handful of amendments. And we'll have a final vote sometime tomorrow that vote likely will be overwhelming bipartisan as well. This'll be the first time since the adoption of the War Powers Act of nineteen Seventy-three. The congress has voted to pull us out of hostilities abroad.

"bartman" Discussed on As It Happens from CBC Radio
"You're listening to as it happened, the archive addition tonight steam the forgiven. Now, as far as I know, Steve Bartman has never run afoul of the law. But at times he probably felt he'd been handed a life sentence for deflecting a foul ball at Wrigley field in two thousand three. It happened during game six of the play offs between the Florida Marlins and Bartmans beloved to Chicago Cubs, the cubs led the Marlins three zip. And then the Marlins Luis Castillo sent a foul ball hurtling straight to Mr.. Bartman in the stands instinctively, he reached out and knocked the ball away from the waiting glove of cubs. Leftfielder Moyes is a Lou. The Marlins scored eight runs that inning to win the game eight, three and eventually to win the World Series. Mr. Bartman would pay a hefty price for his hand in the cubs loss. He went into hiding and was subjected to death threats for years. In twenty fifteen with the team, returning to the National League play offs, a group of cubs diehards and the Chicago Tribune. John Cass declared. It was time to forgive Mr. Bartman. Here's some of Mr.. CASA's conversation with Carol. John, I, how has Mr. Bartman been treated by cubs fans since that fateful game six in two thousand and three, or was it that game? Right. And Mr. Bartman reached out and touch the ball as others dead. And immediately he was ripped shreds, socially and outcast, and not trying to push mister Bartman back in the public eye. But I think that the cubs fans all him in apology and should do. So maybe they can sometime during the playoffs to apologize to this innocent who touched the ball out of his love for cub nece and stepped into legend are hiring. He felt about this since he's been blamed for the cubs, not losing the game, but losing their luck. Becomes lost their luck a long time ago, all the things that seem to have changed and we'll find out who has luck at the end of the playoff run. Mr. Bartman to his credit seems to be quite an honorable man. He was offered six figure piece to participate in advertising and public relations efforts and refused. He did not want to cash in on what happened. Can't come to the game since then is he'd been at a cubs game. I don't know. I haven't been cups that maybe I have. I go to White Sox game. They're not of our world. I'm an American League fan of White Sox fan, and we're very tribal. There are few mixed marriages, but it would be like a like the Maple Leafs and the and the Canadians, right. I know I mixed marriages between those two teams and their fans, but you have given advice to cubs fans. I guess they used to throw beer at him and he's been maligned by many of the fans, but just to polish is to him and get him to come back and these that might be a good talisman for them. Organized apology would be one thing. Second thing I've suggested that they make goats soup. My grandfather was from glow frontier in a restaurant. They're made excellent goats soup, and I would think it would be good if they the cub fans would drink this broth little lemon rice, little chunk of goat meat. Okay. My I have to explain to people. Why about the Billy goat curse? Is that what you're talking about it? I think not everyone knows about it. So why don't you explain the Billy goat curse. Is it said among bands that a terror known or in Chicago, Billy goats, theon ass- went to Wrigley field in nineteen forty five during the cubs appearance in the World Series. He brought his goat with him and was turned away and ever since..
