"Where do you see this division shaking out and if there is one weakness with the dodgers right now it kind of continues to be maybe that that closing bullpen kenley. Jansen some of those things that have happened in particular in games. Where do you think. The dodgers have to shore up everything to to try to repeat the season. Well yeah i'm with. You could use none reliever. I think again. I don't really ever. I mean they've talked about craig kimbrel. You know i think too steep of bryce but maybe they say you know what we're all in. We'll we'll put that payroll at two hundred eighty five million dollars and give more prospects or kimbrel got the nba prospect. Majority do so yeah. I think they You know killing jansen was having an all star first half you know is coupled here. I used to. I think they'd be in another arm that helped out. I mean they joe kelly. He's been know dependable when he's healthy but a why it's been Those guys haven't produced. So i'm with you. I think they gotta get more more labor. It they really want to rush up this thing down. All righty bob nightingale everybody from usa today talking to us all about the ongoing the last few days We'll have you back soon. Probably when all these trades become final and and we're rolling towards the end of the season bob. Thanks for joining us. Thank you guys. Bob nightingale everybody. Usa today major league baseball columnist I like bob's take it's kind of nonchalant like hey you know this is. This is going to be helpful but know you. You already have a pretty good idea where things are especially in the that that that That division is not though. I know i know boston does have a lead right now. But tampa is so strong right and now the blue jays add a big time pitcher and the yankees are buyers now. Even though like as bob pointed out the two players they added still strike out a lot but there are going to provide some more offense. So i thought the yankees would be on a reliever. They're they're chad's just been brutal this season. But it's definitely. I mean you said the stocks were kind of running away with it. I mean i like you here. I like hearing manager meal right. When i don't necessarily think that's the case. Be they still have. i think. Thirteen games left with tampa. They still have four games left for toronto. Six more left with the yankees like still a lot of baseball left to be played. So you know. I know it's july thirtieth but nolita save how. How incredible has it been this year. I don't know why if it's just it seems to be trending in this direction where you have multiple teams in the division like. There's always been a team that run away with it or maybe one more team that vise ford but this year there's there's there's like three and four teams in some divisions that are staying at the top and with games against their divisional rivals and opponents to finish out the season. I think it's gonna make for an incredibly exciting late summer. Run with with major league baseball. Yeah i think so too. There's just there's a lot of teams still alive. You know normally in major league baseball every year. There's just a handful of teams that you think and actually have a chance to win the world series. But it feels like there's no clear cut front runner. Boston has one of the best records in the a alba. My confident in the win. The world series. No definitely not. Houston's been awesome this year chicago. The white sox have a tremendous pitching staff. They have three top-flight top-flight flight guys at the top there. We were talking about it with tiny yesterday with joe madden. It's gonna be great. I'm excited for an august with. Nfl back and then august the pennant races. Really heating up It's gonna be a lot of fun. Tj the mets talking earlier. What are they are. They gonna make a move here. It seems like some of my College met fan. Friends are really wanting kris bryant. Yeah i think everybody wants kris bryant Kinda sat there. You know is very high night. I know you wanna keep them was in the draft last night break. Kept my on everything. Going on like i'm watching. The dodgers just like like fan those just add more stones to love these stones. And it's just like all right mets like what are we doing here and nothing but we'll see i mean there's still some time no ryan leaf does not want kris bryant and the mets better do something because the braves are making tons of move they just got eddie. Rosario from cleveland and now they get back adam devolve for miami and the braves of coming on strong the last couple of weeks. That's been holding off everybody all year though but and also we've suffered a lot of injury slate. I don't know that how many games we've played with our initial starting lineup We'll see they gotta do something. 'cause you're right. I am afraid of the braves. They always seem to have our number. They're they're making a run. Probably probably makes your your your better half pretty happy without their best player though with. It still sucks. See her does that. Injuries was kunia. Go down it's bad for business and you don't see acl injuries in baseball. It's not rare. Yeah it's not a common injury like the nfl or the nba. So yeah super. Tough one of the most exciting young players in baseball. And so hopefully he can bounce back and Come back next year. Be the player that we've we've come to see and appreciate. I'm just excited You know i live in the in the we all live in the nfl west footprint here with the dodgers and the padres and that kind of rivalry in the giants dodgers which has always been there and they're all sitting at the top and they're going to give it to play each other here a bunch over the next few weeks. Hopefully i can try to get away. Get get to see some of those games. Chavez ravine in the fall or late summer is incredibly fun place to be. It gets loud. The weather's great you know. You can indulge on just an a more absorbent amount of of of crap food like nachos and dodger dogs and now that you're this lean mean like fitness model in your forties do you. What are your cheat days. Look like and when you go to dodger. Stadium do you indulge hotdogs and the helmet nachos and the ice cream sundaes. Yeah yeah like you know once. I hit my goal weight like once..

Yeah bill i mean they They tried to lock up result in spring training. Up and five years at seventy million You know he turned it down. You know bryant. Their bothered got two hundred million dollars a couple of years ago. And you turn that down time coming our window when shut and won a You don't playoff games since two thousand seventeen at the time so Yeah i i think they're gonna be down for years now. We building that thing alright. So let's talk. Let's talk to Bob nightingale here from the usa today. Sports a little bit about some of those big moves right the one out here in l. a. Everybody's talking about Max scherzer was the name folding around with a bunch of different teams. The red sox the padres. It looks like it's going to be to the dodgers with trae turner With that move. How does that solidify the dodgers chances that. Make another run at a world series. Oh great move i mean turner is unbelievable. I know we all know about his resume but when the top ten players in baseball terrific shortstop leader position to prefer to stay at shortstop. And maybe the move segal to second base we have turned the has his wishes but a You know sherzer on top that rotation so we had rotation you know what they walker bueller sherzer in in kershaw. Very tough to beat. So you know they're all in you know they. They haven't chores today. Five million dollar payroll so they should be all right in baseball history but a You know just think gun right. I mean they lose. You know. Lose bauer i won't push on the year in may and You know per has been out with some nagging injuries too. Big move for this Dodgers team trying to repeat You talked about the rizzo move. A little bit goes to the yankees going to play. First base for them added bat surprisingly enough for poorly at times. This yankees team has played. They found a way to stay above five hundred and put themselves in a chance to make a run at the playoffs. This of rizzo going to be a difference maker. You know gallo in rizzo. I think you know should give them a boost to get a wildcard spot. I don't see him making up. Nine games on the red sox You know they're just. They're not that they're not that good in a It's always been pitching. They're trying to get a starter and relief pitcher as we speak You know there's still a lot of strikeouts that lineup so we'll see what happens but it puts them position at least to get a wildcard spot. You have coefficient fishing card game so then you're back to square one so you know they're going for this thing and well also staying below the luxury jack. Kyle shorter of cubs hero stands. We watch him bounce around and now he's gonna end up in boston. Chris brockman here love and that addition. Where's he going to play. What kind of Impact will he make for this boston. Red sox team that seemingly starting to run away with l. east whenever you're trying to play met first base Let's see what happens. It has played for space. But you know nobody thought it could play left field and he was fine and left field athletic enough but you know they can play first base. Couldn't play left field d. h. You know he probably won't be healthy for a couple more weeks You know but then he'll be a could be impactful player. We saw what he didn't washington with that and they stretch hit twelve home runs so it he should hope he shouldn't help them out. Definitely it's fun to to see all these former cubs go off to have great careers everywhere else but It is what it is Yeah bob this. Is chris here. The al east now is just looking like. It's going to be absolutely bananas. Down the stretch with the blue jays acquiring jose barrios. Are you surprised that the blue jays are making a run at this. Are you surprised at the yankees. Were buyers here at the deadline. Well the you know. The blue changed are going back home for the first time and towards semi days today. at the Rogers center in toronto. And i think they wanted to make a splash. You got very old for one more year after this to trade away to top prospects and usually They haven't done that This creighton online. We're seeing teams trae more prospects than number yankees trade away But six prospects now In in having those teams pay the money to keep them down below the lighter tax so it used to be the teams trying to protect the prospects lot. But now i think nursing you. What prospects are cool but pray and pray for cooler. We're talking with bob. Nightingale usa today mlb columnist surprising a lot of people to san francisco. Dryest of made this in a west a very interesting division. Padres were in the mix for the max scherzer sweepstakes there bats have been extremely powerful this year and the dodgers went in a different direction to try to solidify them as the dominant force..

What was what was the scene? Like when the everything that happened with our good friend, country, Joe West. Well, I mean, there was a pool before the game, You know, having Ridge boys singing and everything else that we should They show Joe's facing the scoreboard. They started booing, and then you do the video. They do. You know, they blew again in, uh when, after the fifth things over the video shows official game. Shows your picture. Now they're booing him A louder and louder, even this fight showing on the scoreboard that Joe West behind home plate when Mark burly one game one of the 2005 World Series just seen a better That's fun. Not now, Bob. You've seen a lot more Major league baseball games and I have every years. Um, Is there anything specific? About Joe. Wes. Is there a common gripe against him? Or is just that He's an umpire, and everyone hates the umpire. Yeah, I think it's a ladder. But just, you know, he's just a character. If you know any umpire is Joe West. I don't know if they make any name in the interim pyre, so it's almost like Boo. The umpire killed the umpire, You know all the things a crazy things, they say So I just think you know he had epitomizes umpires and that's all. Get. There was an incident where he called a Bach or two on bowling at one time, Hawk Harrelson at one time, get ripping him. No, he and Harold are best of friends, but all the fans remember is I made some calls and big are away. So a bone What is his reputation in the lead? We're talking about Nightingale from USA today. Um, what's his reputation aside, you said if you know one empire and Major League baseball, you know, Joe West name.

You got to be a great on fire. And he always command respect. That's what everybody says. You know what he wants in the field. He respect him. Then I talk to you guys like Jim Leyland. But Showalter term Rosa No, they said, you know, when there's a game seven, the World Series you want this guy behind the plate, particularly when you're on the road because you got never got Ronald. He was always calm and cool under it and never left the fans bottom. Bob. What is the salary for an umpire like Joe West, where the perks of the job? How many games a season? Do they work? That kind of thing? Well, I think it's up. Sorry. Now is about 425,000 year. I think when Joe started, he says, was about 6000. Now That's what the record never be broken. Now. I'm fired this year again. Five weeks vacation. You speak four weeks when Joe started it was, you know You took a couple days off. We also have a couple of weeks in the in the replay booth.

"He going to be when he gets the football would be affected? But how many times are they gonna run with him? Matt Ryan, though, when he talks about the role of the players right now. As we're trying to have a football season, he says. Players are responsible to follow the God lines to keep them safe Discourtesy of Dan Patrick show there's a lot of unknown. On on what and you know it could happen, but I think it's our responsibility is as players and citizens of the country write to kind of do everything we're being told to do to try and stay as safe as possible. And if that report is true, and baseball from what Bob Nightingale was speculating that a few Marlins players did go out on the road when they were in Atlanta, That should be the example of what not to do is now we see that 18 Marlins players and two members on the coaching staff do have Coben 19. And when I look at that I've read something today that they're actually gonna bust those players back. From Philadelphia to Florida. I don't know how many buses they're gonna have. I would not want to be that bus driver, though. That would be awful to be that bus drivers hopefully get back safely. Who knows what's gonna happen There? You get the report with baseball about how baseball could be over by Monday if there is another outbreak. It'll have to wait and see with Major League baseball. But when we get back to Matt Ryan, he's exactly right. Everyone. When you're a professional athlete, you used to live in a certain lifestyle in the world. Right now. Everyone's used to live in a certain lifestyle, and all that has changed. You've got to be responsible. You've got to be a responsible is possible. To not only Make sure that you don't get the Corona.

"I wanted to take those concepts make them accessible to everybody. You don't have to have a background in economics for psychology to understand what these experts are talking about. Before we let you run. Keep law. Where's your confidence level that we actually see the post season this year in baseball before the season started. I had sort of spit his number out, said 33% 1 in three chance that we got through the whole thing. That has dropped. I would say it's maybe half of what it was. It just seems really unlikely that we're going to get through even another couple weeks without an additional outbreak like that. We don't seem to have another one right now. So I'm going to keep going. But And I'm not naturally pessimistic, either. But I feel very pessimistic now. And it is not helped by how bad the pandemic situations in general across the country as a whole, and particularly in the American South. Where would you have a lot of teams playing down there? And then the last thing that I want to ask you about this. I saw the movie statement today. They said over 6604 106,400 maybe tests since Friday zero positives from field personnel on any of the other 29 clubs. So it's just been the Marlins from what MLB said. Does that give you any optimism? Or is it just say it like we see what happens with one club so that could spread pretty quickly that I feel more the ladder that this virus is so incredibly contagious on DH people spreading all these very symptomatic. You know, they have it Or maybe not as cautious as they should be. All this takes is for one player on the Pirates, For example, Let's say, let's say the Rangers because it's really situation's really bad in taxes in Texas has handled the governor state has handled this poorly. One player in Texas goes out somewhere. Maybe he's not even doing anything that risky, but simply by going into public in contact with other people he gets. It brings it back to the clubhouse. He has no idea and suddenly we have another outbreak. It's just too easy for that to happen, And that is even if major League baseball Is pretty much doing everything right. It is the world around sports that is making having sports that much more difficult. Keith. Thanks for the time. Appreciate it. My pleasure where you mask this. Keep law appreciated coming on and some good advice at the end of the interview as well, really quickly, Stew. So here's the Philip Pony tweet just to get back to the Bob Nightingale Report. About. Nightingale tells 93 7 the fan in Pittsburgh that he's heard the Marlins outbreaks started because Miami players left the hotel to go out and have a good time in Atlanta. Let's hear that audio one more time. I think a couple of guys went out in Atlanta. So that's what happened. It wasn't like that. No, I don't think was any kind of fluke. Like Oh, I got it from a, uh you know the bus driver or violent or somebody that I believe some guys got careless. At least one guy did for sure, and went out. And I think, uh, you know, came back positive right around. Now here's my questions, D'oh. After reading the tweet and then here in the audio one more time. Is that what he's thinking? Or is that what he exactly know Zim Bob Nightingale? That could be a big difference here. And once again, we don't know if exactly them going out is what happened, But you see an outbreak like this. It is pretty plausible to believe that They're guys. They go out and work careless here, But I think we need a little bit more clarity now. And we saw this right before the show did break. You see the full pony tweet and I hear the audio again. I want to know exactly What? Bob Nightingale. It was that actual reporters that just what he's thinking. Cause the tweet does read differently than than the actual audio a little bit. So be curious on that front to see what actually happens. All right. We'll take a break. Here's Achille Show CBS Sports Radio when we do come on back that Prescott a Carson once we discuss Here's an update first with Richie. Sports.

"Bob Nightingale welcome to the couple of how you doing Bob. Great going on rob me and Bob when I was doing dodger. Talk Back Today Bob Nightmare. Before he became this National Baseball Scribes Star. He was the dodger. Beat guy back in back in the old days right. Yeah Yeah so. Bob Help us out together. Real go back together. All three of us no doubt so. So Bob you're optimistic. I I feel the same way that they both sides no can have no baseball the next eighteen months. It'll look terrible. It'll hurt the sport seriously and they got to come to some sort of agreement. Tell me why you cautiously optimistic that we will have a baseball season. Yeah I'm actually over optimistic at least negotiating and talking but both sides no just crushing sport. Look there was no baseball plate. This summer a American public would go berserk saying it's all message. Forty million people unemployed in You can't play baseball. You're fighting over millions of dollars here. we're not buying it and I think what set the sport back at good two decades you know when that when the ninety four world series is cancelled. Yeah we had the mcgwire. Sosa thing they help out later but it took thirteen years for the Tennis denounce back. This is sports. Santa tennis decline the last four years so both those sides don't it'll be devastating. Knocked play so go to work something out. I am Scott Boras. We talked about his letter. That's going around. We know he's got a lot of power. But how much influence does he have over the Players Association? Well he's got some input for sure for sure that's been kind of controversial. You know. Maybe maybe you much at times but maybe in that agreement it's bills out if there's no fans in the stands there's travel restrictions in Florida. Open that thing up in talk about what's fair contracts in And that's exactly what the owners are doing saying. We'RE GONNA lose forty percent of revenue without fan now like you send the update but you know Texas now. Looks like they're gonNa have some fans of the year. You know maybe a quarter. The fans are a backer or half fan. So you know with the with the Postseason billion dollars in in money. So that's why they can work things out you know so maybe the players don't take a forty percent cut now you know maybe they take fifteen or twenty percent right and they take a look and see the bottom line at the end of the year if we played is money. That's going to be there and we could figure it out The other thing is and I have an issue with Scott bores. It's like he is like Kim being a defense attorney you know what I mean. This is what he does. He's trying to get money. He's always going to tell people not to take less. His his job is to get as much money as he can for his clients. Sure in the started to do here. It just goes on fewer games that you played at the at the best. The players are getting paid for Radha in There's fewer games you going to get paid less. So that's why it's essential but you know there's more pressure on the players to get something done in the next couple of weeks at the owners tie with the Great Bob. Nightingale here the odd couple and from the USA. Today Bob Nightingale so you mentioned this and we've talked about it the possibility that certain states it's going to be like scattershot where some states are going to open up the fans. Is there a plan? That baseball has bob where let's say. The dodgers teams in California the giants. The as the angels and the Padres can't have fans but the the Rangers Astros teams. Maybe in the south can have fans. Are they going to allow some teams to have fans and other teams not? Do they have to wait until everyone's allowed in the stadium? Everybody's allowed to be interesting to see how they share that money You know in some places like Arizona right now is wide open ended about half of California here on the Weekends Memorial Day it was like Mardi Gras. Just people were so excited to be out But yeah the interested in seeing how how they share that money But if it's places or openly Jackson Zero Zona Florida. I can't believe they're not GonNa let the fans in if it's against the okay from all the government health officials the one team that doesn't have to worry about it. Tampa Bay open or not from the pandemic Florida buddy distancing in Tampa or all those places. I mean really the only place that worry about. It looks like it's not going to happen. Toronto right now. You GotTa do away self-flagellation for fourteen days before he came in the country so I could see I could see the Blue Jays sharing the stadium with the euro. Plays Robin Detroit. Share it with Eck America Park or they could go back to Donnie and at the spring training site but I think they want all the teams in major league. Ballparks Bob I wanted to say this to the other thing that the players have to be worried about not only like this year but next year like when the time comes obviously there's a new. Cba has to be negotiated and also if owners take it on the Chin this year. It could be tough like mookie. Betts trying to get a four hundred million dollar contract and some of those kind of numbers. Those things will not would not be in play if there's no season all right. Now you're right Robin just absolutely crush The free agent market they might say hey. We had no revenue Concerts sport billion dollars year. So sorry we can't afford a single got free agent. A you know a legal form of collusion saw the you know the union noses is to is that they need Some spending this winter is going bad enough as it is but they just can't have everybody say hey we can't afford it..
Minor League Baseball Joins MLB in Indefinite Suspension Amid Coronavirus
"Yesterday we had met Minor League baseball pushing back on the idea that their season has been cancelled to the degree that the organization put out a statement last night But you and I know. The current situation is so fragile and I was thinking back to March when There were initial reports out of London. The London series between the cardinals and cubs who is going to be cancelled and Major League? Baseball push back on that and said now we haven't officially cancelled it and then that came and then earlier this week Bob Nightingale USA Today at a story saying looks like the hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies is going to be cancelled and there was pushback and it was like now. We haven't officially cancelled that yet. Then yesterday we got word yes. It is officially postponed And I feel that way about the minor league season that eventually will probably hear that announcement because the fact is is that on major league. Baseball is list of priorities. It's far down the list and you would expect as they try to make a push to have some sort of a major league season or tournament or whatever form it would take that you know. This is on the back burner. What do you think it's It's one of those things that in talking to agents executives people like that for the last couple of months. It's just been a foregone conclusion that it's gone from very unlikely that there will be a minor league season two in the last few weeks. It's been like Oh there's a zero percents yet. It's not going to happen but I guess there just hasn't been the You know the formal announcement of anything yet and antics earnings of hacking with the draft. Were it's been talked about for of pray about a month now that it's going to be a certain day. Certain around ninety percent. Sure it just hasn't been formally announced yet and on the minor league side it just you know it sounds like there's going to be some version of you get thirty to fifty maybe sixty players Inside your bubble to be part of the season and trying to do that for you know a ball in Aa in all these different levels when there's not that much money to be made and they don't have an agreement there's just like so many different things go on like you're saying it's so far down.

Dusty Baker hired to manage the Astros
"Bob Nightingale of USA Today is reporting that the Houston Astros going to choose dusty Baker the longtime major league manager to manage. Houston that J.. Hinch was fired in the wake of the cheating scandal. The Astros have probably been the most analytically committed team in baseball. This report is true. What do you think of this higher? We'll Tony I'm not surprised. Christ by the higher I told you come to be downing Houston dusty. Baker was going to get this job and the Houston Astros have a lot of stuff take care of and one of them is sort of whether they want to acknowledge it or not getting back in the good graces of baseball dusty Baker is not some analytics nerd. Who wants to win win at all costs and has no conscience dusty? Baker played baseball managed baseball. He doesn't need the Houston. Astros would be great if he can win you the whole thing. But the Houston Astros in a bill. In in the in the need to rehabilitate themselves in their franchise reputation they need dusty baker and dusty Baker. It was the man for this job the moment somebody got to him and said dusty. Are you interested so as you know I like. I think he's a major league manager and I was upset when the national said. We're done with you but I can't be too critical because they're so wonder world series but here's what dusty Baker is he's a player's guy. He's my wii age so he's seen a lot of baseball. The Astros are going to be booed everywhere they go. I believe opposing Pitcher is gonNA throw with players. I believe what they need. Most of the manager is someone who is relentless positive Iraq relentlessly positive dusty dusty Baker is. It's not it's not that I think that tactically. He's the right choice is that I think emotionally. He's the right choice. 'cause I don't I think Houston is going to withdraw. The players. Get into shell dust. They say they're not well. Then it started yet. It hasn't started yet. I Love Day are a study. I mean there's usually bear watching as so really good team. They are and what what they needed to manage. A now is just keep the train on the track. You know we can do this as a radically different approach and lead I like it for VAT on field group. Think this will work. I do I again. He's a very positive and they're gonNA feel attacked on all sides. You're so by the way I'm glad he's getting this chick.

You on my side, you know, the game like and that's division rival things like that. Just can't happen. Yeah. For me myself and his team as well. We're benefiting meeting the lineup, and I got to stand there and Harper talked about his temper, I'm uses air one hundred anyways. So I mean, look at all manage nations, it's usually pretty calm, and then bam ones that happens. What it out, I guess? But you know, like, I said, you know, that can't happen. I got that game. Gotta be there for my team for this organization fans as well. And I got better Phillies manager Gabe Kappler talked about what was yelled at the up higher. There is normal chirping from the dugout that is in every dugout every single night. It was no different are dugout. Did not agree with Mark. A lot of Mark's calls. Our David Ross was on sportscenter withstand Barrett. Talking about what Bryce Harper gate leading up to his objection with the pitches were zone. There's a pitch is high tonight. And this guy's first in all of baseball and walks had legit argument to me, and you know, he saw another one on teammate say Hernandez was up out zone. Apparently says choice words to be unpire out of the dugout and got to check. It have no problem with it. He knows the strike zone pie. Check the tape, and you know to his reputation. This guy's got a lot of puts a lot of pressure on himself and expect it to perform and he just wants to do his job. I don't have any problem with. It is great teammate plays the game hard plays. It the right way. Let's get to it. Bob Nightingale covers baseball for USA today and Bobby. So what happened city field last night? Bryce Harper gets ojected. Jake Arrieta was critical after the game. I off before we get to that sound. How're you doing? Yeah. Great. Thanks and appreciates joining us. So here's Jake Arrieta area. Again, play that sound Josh if he can reacting to Harper getting ojected we need him right field. I don't care about the empire is he wasn't great rather side on out there trying to make pitches. He misses some calls. So what like? We need him out there. We were flat from from start to finish two. Our delay? Doesn't matter. We have to be ready to play. We weren't gonna show. Why philan- what are you get? We started at eight forty five. And I don't think our guys were ready to play. I'm out there doing everything I can to win a game.

And that's division rival things. Like that. Just can't happen. You know for me myself and this team as well. We're a better team meeting the lineup, and I gotta stay in. In bob. There was a lot of reaction to what area at a said ally. So a lot of response at Twitter were fans are saying boy, how can you say that about your teammate keep that in the clubhouse? Is there a problem between these two guys? And I actually think that context is really important because these are two guys who seemingly have a really good relationship. They're both represented by Scott Boris when Harper agreed to terms with the Phillies one of the first people that heard about it was Jake Arrieta. Is Scott Boris texted him, and an airhead has out that that that video that we all saw him cleaning up his condo..

"You know, where's it going? I got seventy five messages day question. Where's harper? I'm sure until Duffy is driving people. Crazy. You know, Bob. I'm going on my my baseball spring training tour that I go on every year in a couple of weeks, and for me, I remember a couple years ago when I'm sitting out there. I forget what stadium I was at. But I remember inbetween innings. There was this little clock in center field. And I'm like what does that clock for? And it was the clock in between innings that was kinda trying to speed up pace. And I think that that rule has helped out baseball in between innings. Now. There are some other rules that are out there at some are being table for other years. But what else on the rules front that league's kind of looking at possibly can take place maybe this year or something that they wanna look forward to an future. Really looking hard at the pitch clock, you know, particular. Nobody's on bass pyschologically talking about the the three batter. Minimum. When we ever comes in going. You know has to pay a minimum pre batters before being taken out. Also, you can only have know thirteen pitchers on your roster. Can't be expand fourteen and fifteen and you know, you creases bullpen us. So things like that. Even happens the issue, but it is common. It's not this year next year for sure. And do you see them making those changes possibly though? I mean, obviously, you want to speed up the game you want the gain to be more fun and what we wanna to see more offense. Do you think that that will increase the speed of the game? But also increase the offense of numbers. Yeah. Certainly speed up the game. I couple minutes at least, you know, if you add in the short commercial breaks, and as a few more minutes being we could see increase in just the pitchers. Get uncomfortable with the pitch clock in that. They say, okay, there's only so many pictures she can use in the game. You know, it forces pictures of his longer, maybe they won't be quite effective. So that's right because they have a trickle down effect and get offense. He is the USA today. Baseball columnist. Bob nightingale. Appreciate the time. Sure. My pleasure. Thank you. Bob. Nightingale follow him on Twitter at the Nightingale. And look, I honestly I believe that. Now baseball has kind of started. I mean baseball's about offense and no offense to Kimbrell and Dallas Heikal heights. Some teams are gonna get some quality starters. But I'm only going to see those guys five days a week. I mean, yeah, Machado are not. Oh now Harper like I get to see those is every single day. So to me though, signings are the ones that are hold the most significant some teams going to get a great closer get a great starting pitcher. Right. But I have to look at a calendar to see when those guys are going to play. Okay. We'll be pitching on this Thursday. And I won't say like Harper or an auto like to me, I'm gonna PR Lia. Okay. I'm gonna go watch a Manny Machado game. Okay. I wanna go see the Padres. What does that look like because those guys to me Dr the needle little more than a pitcher? I'm only going every five days. Yeah. They're superstars. And I think when you baseball they're lagging behind the NFL and the NBA right now, and they need these big names and the big names to perform, and it'd be nice if they were a huge markets. I know many Machado here in Los Angeles. That was awesome sandiego is not a not a huge market compared to LA or Philadelphia..

"That rob Manfred was delivering his spring training media updates or whatever it's called? We won't really call it. The state of the state because it was spring training spring training media day for rob Manfred the Commissioner of major league baseball. And that will tell you that we are ever so close to starting spring training games. Whether it be interest squad whether it be split squad. Whatever it is. Spring is here in some parts of the country. But for baseball purposes spring is upon us spring has sprung. Now, there are a couple of interesting changes tweaks whispering training that will let you hear from the Commissioner about. But I wanted to first give an update on the latest with Harper and Machado because there is actually the latest. There's been movement melting of the iceberg if you will. 'cause that's what happens the lion the witch and the wardrobe. Remember everything started to melt, that's what's happening right now. Maybe although there's no guarantee that it won't rephrase. Manny Machado and Bryce Harper appeared to be zeroing in well. Let me rephrase Harper appears to be zeroing in on a deal Machado has a big time contract offer on the table. Will he take it? So here's the latest on Bryce Harper. The talks with the Phillies are deep into their their multiple layers and different stages. So they spent a lot of time. Talking trying to figure out how they can get this deal done. And it looks like it's believed in baseball circles that he will have a deal with the Phillies before long, right? So no deal yet for Bryce Harper. But right now all of the road signs that would lead you to Florida. Interstate ninety five highway one all of those signs point to the Phillies being the team that lands Harper. No money or terms have I seen pop up yet. On the internet or on social media. But that's weird. After all of this wooing. He's going to stay in the NFL east. And if his deal is not three hundred million. What will you say about Bryce Harper? It. He leaves the nationals. And he goes to the Phillies same division, solid. He's coming up with some massive change think about Washington DC and Philly. Yeah. There a short train ride apart. They're on the same coast. Same weather. Not the same tradition of the same fans. But there's a lot of similarities between the two places if he ends up in Philly. So if he left three hundred million dollars on the table, take the deal with the Phillies, that's less money. Let's just say for the sake of argument. It's two fifty. I don't know what it is. But maybe it's two hundred and fifty million from the Phillies. Would that be eight years? Seven years. Eight years. I'm speculating. But if that's the case would you say this was a smart move by Bryce Harper. Or would you say that he took a calculated gamble and lost? Or would you say that it's something in between? I'd love to hear your thoughts your perspective. Again, we don't know any terms yet with Bryce Harper. But appears as though he won't have to move very far the moving trucks should be there overnight. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. You can find me on Twitter AOL radio or on our Facebook page now as for Manny Machado, the Padre. They are hot to trot for this young man, this slugger, according to Bob Nightingale. The Padres are putting on the full court press, they visited this is interesting. They visited Harper in Miami last week, but the offer is to Machado. Again, you have to read between the lines. Does that mean they got the vibe that Harper was leaning toward Philly today? Feel like Harper was out of their price range shadow was more affordable. That's kind of the funny part speaking of collusion as we've talked about on this show already. You know, the agents aren't colluding talking to each other. Do you think? Hey, guys got this offer. You should hold out for this offer, knack that'd be bad business. I know agents who talk about this kind of stuff behind the scenes off the record. Of course. So after spending time with Bryce Harper. The Padres offer a deal to Machado. I had to read that at times what I was doing my research because I thought it was a typo. But after their general manager spent time with Bryce Harper now they've offered a deal to Manny Machado. And here's what Bob Nightingale reports. Eight years. Two hundred forty million dollars with money deferred. Does Machado wanna play in San Diego? That is the question. To be or not to be. That is the question. Now something else from Bob Nightingale, which I find fascinating. Some teams were told. Now, this is rival general managers the word gets around. You know when one GM offers a contract. Bob Nightingale report some GM some teams we're told the Padres offered as much as two hundred eighty million over eight years. But others were told two hundred forty million. So maybe there's a range in there where the final deal lands. But is it enough is it enough? To lure Machado to San Diego. Now. Keep in mind, he just got done playing in Los Angeles. So you're talking about what roughly a ninety minute drive. I think when I went from. Well, when I went to the San Diego zoo, I was in the desert at the time, so not quite LA. So I guess I don't know exactly. How far it is to drive, but roughly ninety minutes give or take traffic. So he'd at least be somewhat familiar with the area, southern California. And it's nice weather. What are people tell me all the time sandiego, America's finest city? A lot of it has to do with the weather. I don't think I can ask you would you take the deal? I would take the deal. But this is monopoly money to meet you. So if you're Manny Machado, do you take the deal? Now, John Hayman of MLB network. Reports that the Padres did make an offer to Harper. But that it's not a likely marriage. So they tried to woo him. And that kind of goes along the lines of the time line that we've talked about a little bit. They tried to win. Maybe made an offer doesn't look like he's going to sign there. So now Machado's the Baco plan. I'm using my air quotations. Now, he's the backup plan. And this would be the largest contract in franchise history. If it's anywhere over two hundred million dollars. It would be the largest contract and franchise history. Because Eric hosmer went to the Padres last year for eight years and one hundred and forty four million. Think about that. If Machado gets to forty and that's on the low end of the reports, we've heard it's the low end of what the general managers have heard. His deal would be almost a hundred million more than what the Padres have ever given any player if you're Machado does that make it more attractive to you? Or is the fact that the Padres have been so bad. They've been rebuilding for what like forever. They were thirty games below five hundred last year. Does that chase you away? If you're Machado. Now think Houston Astros. A lot of people point to the Padres farm system and say that it's coming along. They've had some high draft picks. They've got some supreme talent there. So about the Astros. They were terrible for several years that it got a couple of number one draft picks. They stoke the farm system, and boom they won their first World Series in franchise history. Machado would obviously be a cornerstone and could help them get there a lot quicker. He's only twenty six we know all about his production. I don't know if you're Machado. Do you wanna be able to say I got the richest contract in franchise history. And how about this? Only five players in history have ever signed deals worth two hundred forty million or more. Can you guys name them off the top of your head? Let's go. Let's quiz Kristen day. Let's go. What five players have ever give David chance Christmas? Like, all except. He's just he's is the biggest song. Don't you dare Google? No, Google heads up heads up. I see you. All right. So you guys each get a shot you can name too. And that way neither one of you will steal the thunder. A rod Zach ranking a-rod and that Grank so a rod for sure he's actually signed two of them..

He's only we're creeping ever so close to spring training and already there's news for major league baseball. Bob Nightingale writes in USA today today, the once again MLB is considering implementing a pitch clock as in now as in this season last season MLB backed off imposing the pitch clock because they got so much blowback from the players, but apparently MLB poobah is now feel the games have to be shortened. And this is the best way. And this has worked in the minor leagues the past four seasons. So shouldn't the players just sorta cave agreed to this. It's not just the games have to be short. That's half of it. The other half is there has to be more action. There's a lot of strikeouts. A lot of walks. There's a lot of waiting on the mound the players should relent on this. The players should understand that for most of us. This is entertainment, and we don't want to spend four and a half hours waiting for somebody to actually pitch the ball. The players hate all changes to the game. And they're wrong in this. Guard because it's been in the minors for four years as probably thirty percent of the people playing now who've gotten used to this might they're not they're not making it three balls and two strikes. They're keeping the game. Just move it along at first when this is first mentioned many years ago, I thought and I want this. And now, I'm begging for it. I go to a lot of games in the summers.
