The Incredible True Story of Squanto
"In 1608 before any ships before any people settled in what's now Massachusetts, I never knew this, because we all know that the Mayflower landed there in 1620. Chris, you knew that? I did at one point in my life. Right. So 1620 is when the pilgrims land at Plymouth. Sorry. But I always assumed growing up that that's the first time that anybody came to like what's Massachusetts. But I found out that's not the case. And the story of squanto, which I'm going to tell right now, which just wait, wait till you hear this. It starts in 1608, and it turns out that English trading ships would travel from Europe from England to Iceland, Greenland make their way down Nova Scotia all the way down and they would trade with the natives. Now I never knew that. So the natives were familiar with English sailors coming and trading and giving them knives and pots and pans and they would give them pelts and whatever. And they would trade. I never knew this. Well, in 1608, a group, a group, a ship led by a captain hunt lands or drops anchor off of what is today Plymouth Massachusetts. And the braves come down to the shore to trade with them as they've done before. Well, just so happens that this captain hunt was a bad man, and instead of trading with the braves, they whack them over the head, put them in the long boat, take them out to the ship, throw them in the hold, sail to malaga, Spain and sell them into slavery. This is 1608, one of the braves was a 12 year old. Boy named tisquantum. Now this is true story. This is all documented. I've done the research. Others have done the research. It's true. So he has bought by some kindly friars, who seemed to treat him well. Teach him the Christian religion, and this is the part that we'll never know how this happened. But they arrange for him to be freed and to travel to London. Now imagine from malaga Spain to London. So this is an Indian from what is today Massachusetts, a Native American, a patuxent, makes its way to London with the idea, and this is where it's crazy of getting back across the Atlantic to go back home. I know. It's like being on the moon and saying, so when's the next ship going back? There's no next ship going back. What are you talking about? But I guess the idea was not insane. He worked in London from what is it around 1612, 1613 for four or 5 years with a family called slany. This is all documented. This Indian named squanto to squantum learns the English language. He's there when he's there when Queen Elizabeth is on the throne, we're talking Shakespeare is writing his play. So he's in London. This Massachusetts Indian, and this is years before the pilgrims ever get to Plymouth rock, crazy, right? In 1618, I believe 1619, a ship is found. For him to go back to his home. And he's going to translate obviously because he knows the language. He's going to be on the ship working with these English as they're stopping, you know, and he's going to be doing the translating and so on and so forth. So somehow he gets passage on a ship. The ship ends up having to spend the winter in I can't remember if it was Iceland or Greenland. It's in my book. Where does it say? Newfoundland now, hold on a second. Anyway, the point is that it took them quite a while to get there, right? So they basically, no, it was Newfoundland. Sorry. They spend the winter in Newfoundland. And then the next spring, this is like 1619, they bring him to what's now the coast of Massachusetts drop him off. Thank you very much. Goodbye. This sounds crazy, right? This is document. This is a true story. So a year plus before the pilgrims land. This Indian has made the journey from Plymouth to Spain to London, spans 5 years London, learns the English language, learns the ways the English, and then ends up back where he started. He finds his way on foot to the village, which is right where Plymouth is today, right? Village where his Indian, where his family is, they have all been wiped out. In ten years, he's dreamed about getting home, he's dreamed about returning. He's dreamed for ten years. He's thought in his mind of doing the impossible to get all the way back

Phil Kerpen Dared to Question the Data on COVID Deaths in America
"Let's talk to somebody who has been on the front line of separating not just fact from fiction, but proper ganda from the truth. He's a regular guest here. He is a very, very brave individual prayer student of American commitment and the committee to unleash prosperity. Phil kerp and thank you for coming in studio for one on one. My pleasure, great to be with you, doctor Parker. So Sebastian, please. Phil, let's start at the beginning. We have time to go through all of not just the health policy idiocy, the abuse of our body sovereignty, but also the economic and psychological consequences. But let's start at the beginning, you came to my notice because you were doing something very, very untoward. You were daring to question the statistics for COVID fatalities. And you're going state by state. Last time we spoke was a few months ago, could you give us an overview? Somebody just landed from another planet and said, Phil, tell us about the data on COVID deaths in America and cases. And what would be your summary pricey as to the problems with how things have been reported to the American people? Well, we've decided that unlike every other disease or condition in the history of the world where we counted deaths that were caused by that disease or condition for this, we count deaths that are associated with COVID, which is quite a big distinction. So some have very serious conditions, die of those conditions, but is tested positive for COVID and then that's added to the tallies. Correct. And there's some variation geographically, so we don't even have a consistent definition nationally. But in a lot of places, the way this works is any death of any cause of death within a certain number of days it could be 30 days it could be 60 days. Of a positive test goes into the count. And it could have been could have been someone who died in a car accident or a gunshot wound. If there's a positive task within the cutoff, they go

"LCS MVP World Series MVP and boys did a lot of home runs in the postseason, not all of them against the braves. It seems like that. But a lot of them against the braves. You know, I just think he's going to in the end, he probably will nip Correa the boat's going to get huge money though. Yeah. Now, no doubt about it. All right, before we get out of here, I gotta ask you I know you have a vote, John and this is the last year for Barry Bonds to be on the ballot. And it comes with my mind because I know they got that E 60 special coming out about it. I think today or tomorrow. But either way, I want to know what's your thought on this? I don't know if you're allowed to reveal your vote on this, but I would love to get your thought on it. Thoughts on this. I am allowed. Not only am I allowed. I think we all vote should reveal their votes. Now, some people don't, the guy who didn't vote for Jeter or the three people didn't vote for griffey. They never revealed who they were. And I understand that because they're morons. And they didn't want anyone that they're so stupid. So I get that, but I don't think I'm in that category. Some people don't like my ballot and they think it's foolish or whatever, but it's not that idiotic, or I wouldn't vote for a Jeter or griffey. Obviously, with bonds, I get it, both ways I understand. I generally do not vote for the steroid guys. Clearly is a steroid guy. I mean, I don't think there's any question that he did steroids. The reason that I do I make an exception and I have voted for him for the last several years, I did not vote from initially because I am anti steroid and I figure these guys made extra money. They got extra accolades, especially in bonds case, but Clemens and others and why honor them further and so I generally do not vote for guys who cheated. I understand there's some bad people who are in the Hall of Fame, but if you cheat and your performance is enhanced, that's different than being a nasty individual that's not great either. But I generally don't vote for him, but the reason I vote for bonds is I do believe that narrative that he did not do steroids quite a long time, and then once he saw the bonds and Sosa, we're doing it, and they were passing them as great players, and he said, I'm the best. I'm going to have to do this to keep up. I mean, maybe I shouldn't make an exception. But to me, even through 98, to me, bonds was a Hall of Famer through its first decade or so in baseball. Yep. And so that's why I make the exception and vote for him, but really no other no other steroid guys because, you know, and I get it. If you want to just go on the stats because we don't know what other people did and all that, I think I have a pretty good idea who did and who didn't do. So I feel pretty confident about that. So I generally do not vote for the steroid guys, but I do vote for Barry bob. I mean, you played in that era with him, you know, and with all these guys who were steroids, you obviously were not a steroid guy, but what do you think about the whole the whole controversy? I think at the time I came into the league, we were on the back end of it, right? Because so many at that point, there started to be more tension paid to it, but there was a whole error before that were having been around it. There was far, far, far a lot. There was a lot of guys on it. And so I come down on that kind of where you are. He was an all fame and really the first ten years he was in the league. And I think most people who believe he was involved with steroids would say that it started at a specific time. And that specific time was after he had already established how good he was of being dominant through that point. And I agree. I think that's exactly what led to him possibly using it because he thought the other guys were using it. So ultimately he's all a Famer in my mind. I don't think there was a better hitter in that era than Barry Bonds. I got to see it. I got the sheer filled with him. I got to see it as a fan. I think he's a Hall of Famer. And, you know, there are a bunch of. Guys in the Hall of Fame that, you know, aren't morally clean when it comes to any of this. So I think he should be. I hope he gets in it. I think it's gonna be tough for that vote count to get up where he needs it to be. But I certainly hope he gets in. Yeah, I mean, I don't think he's gonna make it via the writers with around 60% last year. You know, a lot of guys rise from 60 to 75, but this is, you know, it's all based on whether you count the steroids against him and that's it. And, you know, most people aren't going to change their mind on that. I did at one point and I hadn't voted for him at the beginning and I did, but I just don't see year ten, they're going to be another 15% of guys doing that. I will just say that, you know, before.

"Right to give it to him. Good job by the mets and the Giants there. They both worked out. They both pitched very, very well. And maybe synagogue will too. He's certainly very talented. Meth didn't want to take a chance. To me, you know, it could be, you know, saw young candidate or we'll see. You don't never know when you've got a situation like this where it's two years after Tommy John, maybe maybe the time is really gonna help and he'll be great. But I say he takes that qualifying offer and takes that 18.4 million from the mets. And roselli glaciers coming off a pretty good year for fantastic. Yeah. I mean, I saw angels people and September and I asked about it. They weren't giving them the qualifying offer at that point, but he was outstanding at the end of the year. So wow. You know, I put them in that Liam Hendricks category and they come up a little short of that because he doesn't throw quite as hard as Hendrix. So I'm going to say turns it down. If he did, if he takes it, that's a record for relievers. 18.4 would be a record, but I'm gonna say that he turns it down and gets three years 50 million just a little short of Hendrix. Yeah, okay. That's pretty good money for a closer for sure. All right, I think the guy you could argue probably boosted his stock more than anybody in baseball this past season Marcus Simeon psi takes a one year flyer bit on yourself deal with Toronto and boy oh, boy did he put together a fantastic season. What do you think is going to be like? You know, and maybe I'm crazy, but, you know, I think he'll get a big deal. Yeah. I'm looking at, you know, he's 30, so it's going to be shorter than the other short steps, but you know what? He had a better year than all of them, really, I know. I mean, Correa had a fantastic year, particularly defensively and Seeger finished up strong and we're going to talk about Seeger and a little bit. But I'm going to say Simeon gets 5 for one 50. I don't know. It might be a little high, but I'm seeing some definite interest out there on Simeon and I'm going to say gets that 30 million a year, which is kind of like a benchmark for a superstar player now and I'm going to say gets 5 years instead of the 7 plus that we're going to see these other guys get. Yeah, I see the same thing. I think he gets a big number. He got hot, or had the best season that he possibly could going into his free agent. All right, the last guy we're gonna cover. And we've seen guys be able to capitalize this. Eddie Rosario was hurt. A lot of the year didn't come back toward for Atlanta at least towards the end there and had one of the best postseason runs in recent history. Let's talk about him because it reminds me of Jeff supine. The year the Cardinals won the World Series. He had an unbelievable playoff run and he gets the big deal with Milwaukee. That following off season, where do you see Rosario's number? Can you know what? He loves the spotlight. It was true in Minnesota. I mean, to me, there are guys who are clutch, you know, we could say KK and Peterson, I think Rosario is in that category. So I think he's going to get a signed a one year I think around 9 million with Cleveland. I think he's going to get a four year deal for 56 million. That'd be my guess. We shall see. That's quite a quite a raise from where he was last winter, but I think he can do it. Clutch player, big personality, had the big postseason, and I'm seeing a four year deal for Rosario. And I'm going to throw more one more in there. I know you said the last one, but it's on my mind and we talked about two Dodgers. Now the biggest, well, I don't know. It's the biggest one. We talked about Scherzer last week. That's a big one, too. But Seeger, you know, they have trade turners. So, you know, I think perhaps he'll leave. I think the Dodgers love him, so they're going to give it a shot. And I know I predicted 300 last week for Correa. And, you know, my pole, which I did with a month or two to go in this season had a slight narrow win for in that competition on Correa over seger and those were the two guys among all the shortstops who were people who were saying either are going to go one two. I think seeker is going to get the most. I do. I just think that offensively, I think he's, you know, unmatched. I mean, I guess you could say tatis would be ahead of him. But, you know, it's not the same category. This is a free agent now. And of course, you know, after Lindor Lindor wanted to be tatis three 40 and did a three 41, you know, he probably wants to get three 42. I don't know at this point, you know, I think people are looking at Lindor's a special case, the timing was great to go to the big market team. They want to make a splash. I'm going to say it comes up a little short of that, but I'm going to say that he even beats Correa and say, I'm going to keep get them at ten years, 320 million. I see a lot of teams out there looking at short stuff, not just the ones who are losing short stops, but there's a pretty good group of teams that just feel like the big market teams, like the Yankees, the Phillies that are going to go for a shortstop. And this is a guy who can hit well enough, even though he's probably just average defensively. He can hit well enough that if you want to move them in three, four years, you'd still be a great hitting third baseman. So I'm gonna say ten for three 20 for mister seger. Listen, I think, you know, talking to folks that I know in LA, the read at least early on. And I don't want to say this ever came from Cory himself, but the read on him early in the season was he didn't really know that he wanted to return, but certainly by the end of the season, it certainly seemed like he did want to return. I know he made a couple cup public comments about it himself. So we'll see how that lands. I agree. I think he might be the one that gets the most money. I think despite Carl's gray is brilliant this year, I think teams will have a hard time forgetting about the injury plagued seasons that he had. In terms of tyus dollar most years, we'll see. But certainly, he's worthy. He's worthy of being that number one shortstop. When the time comes. All right. Is the best defensively of all the stops? Obviously, fantastic, but he doesn't hit like these guys. I think he's the best defensively, even over Lindor and fantastical around player and certainly love the spotlight. He's been very good in the clutch, but Seeger is one of those guys just one of the best hitters in baseball and against us pitching..

"I mean, I think we thought was a good team at that point. And same with the braves, but that braves had so many injuries. I mean, I thought they were dead. I don't know about you, but I thought they were done when they were 500 more than halfway through the year and hear their best player. I mean, arguably, I guess someone could say Freeman's the best player. But Acuna goes down. He was probably the leading candidate for MVP at that point. I didn't get any chance. I'll say this. Often we get caught in the moment. I think it's important to point out that in both of these situations where we're talking about the braves or the nationals, the whole reason why they stuck early is because they had injuries. And they were beat up. Then they got healthy and then they did what exactly most people thought they could do early on. I think we lose track of that sometimes. And then I'll say this, you can't, it would be hard to just overlook the fact that when we despite whatever the Astros that got caught with, that 2017 World Series, when they went back and forth with the Dodgers and eventually won in 7, was one of the more exciting World Series we got to see. And I think we all said that at the time. So I just think, you know, right now in this moment, yes, that was a lot of fun. You do like to see the underdog come through. But doesn't mean that it should replace or is any better than when you do get two teams that go start to finish everybody thinks they're gonna be the ones and then they deliver in a World Series. But this one was certainly up there. Congratulations to the braves once again. Let's move into that. That Heyman's inside corner. John, you got some free agents that could require pretty high price tag. Let's start with Sterling Marte, who was traded to Oakland, had a great finish to his season. You got on him. Yeah, I think that Marte is going to do quite well. And we know the Marlins offered a three year deal for somewhere in the 36 million range, something like that. I think he might double that. I saw someone predict a 100 million for Marte, but he is 33 years old. If he gets a $100 million, his agent should be agent of the year. I'm gonna say, four years for 70 million he did a fantastically with Oakland. He brought the stolen base back and it won't be Oakland, obviously they're not spending, but they'll be plenty of teams looking for an excellent center field, but at 33, I think we're going to limit this to $70 million. Let's move to the Dodgers because there's a boatload of free agents that they have coming off to Ross, but we're going to focus in on two in particular. One was offered a qualifying offer in Chris Taylor, the other is probably going to be in the Hall of Fame. And that's Clayton Kershaw was not offered a qualifying offer. Let's start with Chris Taylor. What do you see him going? Where do you see or not where necessary going? What do you see I'm getting? Yeah, I think I see him turning there. I think their Dodgers, they make right decisions. I think that was the right call to give them the 18 $.4 million qualifying offer. I think it's going to turn that down. And I think I'll go more money. Yeah for a guy who was a utility player when they acquired him, so that was another great decision to get him. But I see him in the four for 60 million range, you know, he's a little bit great, great. Utility sounds pejorative. Great guys who can play many positions. Zobrist got something in the 50 something range, you know, in a couple years have passed, but I'm gonna say four for 60 million for Chris Taylor. So I think he turns down that qualify. I only have one guy probably taking that qualifying offer and I'll get to him later, but Chris Taylor would say four for 60. Clinton Kershaw, injured at the end of the season. They don't offer him qualifying offer, which doesn't necessarily mean he won't return, but what do you see his number being it? Yeah, I'm gonna say he's a very proud guy and a very determined guy. So I almost think now I predicted on a previous podcast, the Dodgers were most likely with the rangers then second. I think he may end up with a rangers at this point. You know, maybe they'll work it out for a little bit less than the 18 million, but I think he's a very proud guy and maybe he'll go home. I mean, you think an all time great like that would stay with the team, but you know, I do see them focusing on Scherzer and I'm gonna say that he gets that money that I know we're not privy to the medicals. We don't know the situation. That's why I couldn't predict whether we get the qualifying offer. We really don't know what his medical situation is. You know, we know it's foreign, arm slash elbow. We don't know much beyond that. Yeah. I didn't know whether they were going to offer the qualifying offer and, you know, maybe it's not a great sign that you didn't get it, but maybe someone else will look at the medicals differently. And I'm gonna say it's home to our team. We'll give them that and make up for it and give them that deal for one year, 18.4 million so we can say, look, I got it, and I'm gonna say goes to Texas. That would be my guess at this point. Really taxes. Okay, that's interesting. All right, well, another guy who's rain may have maybe coming to an end. This one is no centigrade. Finally made it back was able to pitch and I think it was the last game of the season or close to the last game of the season through a couple innings. Where do you see his number being at? Yeah, you're absolutely right through a couple innings in two years. He's got two winnings. So only a big market team would give this $18.4 million qualifying offer. Again, we're not privy to the medicals, so we don't know, but I mean, after two years, he wasn't throwing breaking balls. So I'm going to say this is the one guy who takes that qualifying offer last year, I didn't predict that Strowman would get it..

"But, you know, hopefully it'll take them a couple months and they'll work it out and have a full spring training, but it's gonna be a weird off season doesn't feel like they're on the same page at this point and it doesn't feel like we're gonna have a deal. Anytime soon, but we do have free agency right now. We go, wow, what a great list of free agents. And they will get signed at some point, whether some of them can rush to get signed. I mean, I've seen a couple guys big players get signed at Thanksgiving. Bernie Williams resigned Thanksgiving, Tori hunter went to the angels at Thanksgiving. So it's theoretically possible and maybe someone's going to rush if they really love a player or maybe a player is nervous. They want to get it done. They don't want to wait this out. But the bulk of the work is going to be done after what we expect to be a lockout unfortunately. And just to get back to Alex, I mean, the guy is just a determined the guy when he sets his mind to something, he's absolutely going to go for it. I mean, look at Duval, they tried to get to volk. The new Duval, he had been with the braves last year. He tried the Marlins, didn't want to give him up to the heated braves. They had all sorts of problems with the being balls thrown to Acuna and, you know, they really weren't friendly and they said no, but he did not give up. He kept he stuck with it. He stuck with a knee. He got through all his man. And then Peterson he knew him when he was an executive with the Dodgers and I think he certainly knew the guy was a colorful personality and maybe felt the team needed a little bit of an edge and you're absolutely right. That's what he gave them. You know, a couple things about Alex in particular that I appreciate just from an outside looking in perspective. He had a he put together a good team in Toronto. Good roster in Toronto. He ends up going to be an executive under the Dodgers after that. And I remember when he came on our show and he talked about how much he learned at those different spots, whether it was Toronto first, and kind of the things he learned when he was running the show in that organization to what he learned under the Dodgers regime. And now it seems like he's kind of taking the best of both worlds and put it together in Atlanta. You gotta admire a guy who continues to try to work on himself and get better because clearly that's what he's done. It's so so much so that he's got himself a World Series title. So I think there's a lot of, you know, thumbs up, need to go his way. Oh, and he's an interesting story too. I mean he came out of the ticket office. Omar mania hired him for the expos for an office. He had been selling tickets. You know what I mean? Nowadays, most of the GMs come out of the Ivy League and worked their way up through the MLB office and do it that way, but he was selling tickets. He's a Canadian he's Canadian and Omar I know, I think Omar is a good judgment when it comes to hiring executives he hired David Stearns for the mets, he hired perryman Asian. He's now the angels GM starts now the brewers, baseball president. So, you know, it's an interesting story for anthropologists and give him credit for getting to where he got and he's one now between Toronto Dodgers and Atlanta 7 division titles in a row. I mean, that's not going to rival the braves with the three Hall of Fame pitchers, but pretty darn good. And, you know, I know he's got some big market teams shooting at him including the mets and the Phillies. But it's pretty good. The braves have won four in a row now. Yeah, congratulations to the Atlanta Braves and their organization. Let me ask you this 'cause it's the second, this is now a second time in three years where a team has gotten hot and made a run. The team before this one was the nationals who had a abysmal record just before the first half and pretty much did the same thing to braves did down the stretch and they win a World Series. Do you think this is this way is more exciting than maybe when the two best teams that from start to finish get to a World Series and play one another? Yeah, I think so America loves an underdog and of course it's actually the last two full seasons. Yeah. And the partial season, you know, there wasn't time for that. You know, you couldn't get off to a nationals. What was it 19 and 31 start or something like that? If you did that you were done. So the last two full seasons where they played a full slate of games, we've had teams get off to in the braves case a mediocre start. They were basically 5 at 500 or next to 500 for every set of record at one point for alternating wins and losses. I think they did 15 or 16 games in a row where they alternated win and loss. And they looked very mediocre, but then they were actually just passed through one third of the season and they revamped, improved their bullpen and figured it out. The braves did it with all these offensive acquisitions, all the outfielders and I like it. I like to see it come back team..

If you get a chance to see the parade, some craziness going on there will always get into Heyman's inside corner quite a deep free agency class this year. We're going to touch on. And we most certainly will talk about the Hall of Fame, Barry Bonds, his last year on the ballot. Will he get enough votes to get in? I'll get a behind the curtain look with John Heyman who has a vote in this we'll talk to him about it. First, but first, let me let me welcome in John. John how you doing today? I'm good. How are you doing, Tony? I am doing well, baseball season has come to an end. I don't know that we expect it to be crowning the brazes champ, but the way they played down the stretch, it really isn't that much of a surprise. No, I mean, they were great in the second half. No, I didn't expect it. Maybe somebody did. I guess in our last podcast, we did talk about the fact we felt they had the advantage, not just because they were up three to two, but they had the pitching set up and that found out to be right. So let's pat ourselves on the back of about that otherwise I was completely wrong. I had Dodgers over Astros, didn't happen. I guess I was right that the Astros lost the World Series, but I had the wrong team. So I don't think that counts. Give the braves credit. Fantastic job. Great job I am topless. Great job by Brian snicker. Unbelievable that they got four outfielders who all contributed. I mean, obviously when they lost Acuna when they were 46 and 46, nobody, nobody foresaw the World Series for them. I think we weren't alone there, but you know, at the beginning of the year, we both did have them as the division champions. That probably isn't so hard looking back on it. But we thought they'd have Acuna and sirocco at some point and certainly didn't know what was going to happen with Ozuna. That's his own fault, but I mean, give them credit for rallying. It was a great story. It wasn't a great World Series, but it was a great story and applaud the braves. I tell you what, that is the definition of a mid season jackpot. If you're a GM and you're running baseball operations, the moves that Alex and Thompson made and ends up hitting on all of them. That is doesn't happen very often. You may hit on one or two, but when you make that many moves, generally, all of them don't come through like the way the braze did. And that staff in general, you know, from sticker to Washington to young. I mean, their whole entire coaching staff did a phenomenal job as well as the players. That's why their champs, the parade, however, was a little interesting. I mean, I don't know that I've ever seen a parade go that fast. I mean, the busboy had to be going somewhere around 40 mph. Not only that joc pederson was giving out pearls to everybody, and then Tyler magic almost gets arrested. It seemed like there was some confusion there. Nevertheless, the city of Atlanta got their parade though John. Yeah, I mean, they look like they had fun and thankfully nobody got hurt. I couldn't believe that video of that buzz rolling through. I don't know what was should have been stopped and given a speeding ticket. You know, I liked Peter. So that was a nice story with the pearls. I don't think they were real pearls, he was trying. I highly doubt they were, but I think it was a nice touch. He's a funny guy. Maybe that adds to his marketability as he's a free agent. I mean, you talk about the four guys that they got. I'm not sure which of the four actually was the most key. Peterson to get them through that first round, Rosario through the next round. So air in the next round and then do valves. The guy who can play center field and pulled it all together. So, I mean, you can make a case for all four guys. I mean, you know, Peterson really carried them past Milwaukee. I mean, he wasn't even starting for three out of four games and was clearly if they had MVP of the division series. He was it, and then, of course, was very unbelievable in the LCS and then solaire with the home runs in the World Series and, you know, it's going to play well for them in free agency. It's a layer and Rosario and Peterson all free agents. I think they'll probably bring one of them back, but I can't see them having room for more than one. They want to, I mean, obviously, Acuna will be back. Maybe that right at the very beginning, but he'll be back. Ozuna will see what happens there, but she they've got and do vows coming back. So, I mean, there's certainly room for one of them, at least. But I'm not certainly not all three of them are coming back. There's a jocks impact on that team. I think what will be just a playing field. I think that team was good day or talented all year, but it seemed like once he got there, they had a different attitude to him. It was a little more in your face and it seemed like the braves had kind of gone about their business in the past. And I thought it gave him a little bit of an edge. And certainly, it certainly showed once playoff time came. So they got some decisions to make. At this point, you gotta believe in Alex in the movie. You're gonna make. But he definitely got some tough ones to make as we get into free agency. And by the way, none of those moves will take place for quite some time. There's gonna be there's probably gonna be somewhat of a lockout at some point once the collective bargaining agreement doesn't comes to an end. And so my guess and tell me if I'm wrong on this, John, is there not there going to be any movement until that is eventually settled? Yeah, I'm not foreseeing much and I don't see much hope for anything being settled at the beginning in December when the CBA expires. I mean, I hope we're not depressing people here..

'Let's Go Brandon' or 'Let's Go Braves?'
"So I mean you know a lot of times pilots in the flight attendants make jokes and they're doing the whole you know had a buckle in the seatbelt thing that they still have to they think they have to teach us still to this day And a lot of times they do it to make it fun and you know joke around they dance sometimes right They sing songs They make little comments Nobody's ever really gotten upset by it But of course now let's go Brandon is now synonymous with the fact that Joe Biden's a failure That's really what comes down to He's failing at everything They know that There's this Democrat who spoke anonymously today and he said he's almost to the point of chanting Let's go Brandon now Things are that bad Because that's what it comes down to Chris Hahn who's a progressive political strategist he accused the pilot of sympathizing with terrorists The power of the plane the power of the Southwest plane of sympathizing with terrorists by the way And it also kind of sounded a little bit like he might have said let's go braves That's the other thing too is that the braves are in the World Series I mean there was of course the left accusing everybody of the racist chant and the chop It was that too But it's also possible that the pilot might have been saying let's go braves It's hard to tell But I don't think that would have been any better since Trump went to the braves game and did the shop that probably wouldn't even worse actually They might have the plane just for that for saying the racist word braves It's very hard to keep up with these people It really is But let's go Brandon is political speech It's protected speech It's satire it's parody It's tongue in cheek it's all these other things
"braves" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"It would be that, and I'm sorry that that came in that round instead of a later round when there would have been more games. But other than that, probably you would say that the very best teams of the year were not in it at the end, which I guess is not a prerequisite for it being entertaining. Right. It is something that I generally look for and when you do have all those injuries and in October just turns into a war of attrition and when the World Series champion is relying on Dylan Lee and Tucker Davidson and Kyle Wright to win and that's not to take anything away from the braves who had an incredible pitching and defense performance and got past the brewers, it got passed to the Dodgers and shut down the Astros the best offense in baseball in that final series despite the cameos from pictures that many people had never heard of. That took a little bit away from it for me. Like I would have rather have seen colors and Morton and sirocco and Acuna for that matter or all the other missing faces from the postseason. So that was my general takeaway, like if I had to sit out a postseason. I guess I'm not sorry that it was this one. And it's a tough time to cover baseball in general, especially as a podcast here because as you discovered, there's no great time to record and post episodes with that. Everything immediately being out of date. But also because it's just hard to analyze individual games and even individual series in a way that really yields fresh insights for one thing because everyone's talking about the same baseball, which is great in some ways because we're all paying attention to the same stuff, but also we're all talking about the same stuff. And so it's hard to say something that other people aren't saying. But also it's just hard to analyze baseball on a weekly or daily basis. So for all those reasons, I guess if I had to go and leave. Maybe I picked a decent time from my perspective, but not from yours. Yeah, I think that the point about it being hard to analyze is a good one because we have a version of this early in the season, right? Where it's so early in the campaign that you're just like this could mean a lot or it could mean nothing. Who's to say? Like, we don't know. Check back in two months, and then we'll have a better sense of it. But you don't even have the promise of eventually being able to circle back and answer that question of like, yeah, this guy's really breaking out or no, that was like a weird little bit of flu Ness. You just have to say Eddie Rosario. Good forever. I don't know man, maybe maybe not. Could we true could end up being silly? You don't really have that part of it. And I think, I think I agree that this was sort of a, you know, at best an average potentially a little bit below average World Series because I think about when the nationals won. They were not the best team in baseball right in some ways. They're a really good parallel. But they were they were the opposite of Atlanta in that when you had their innings concentrated, it was like in their really good starters because they're bullpen was not good. And unreliable and some of those guys were hurt. And so I think that you don't necessarily need the best team to win, but it helps when the team that's there is able to showcase players who are legitimately stars, even if they aren't on the best team. It would have been one thing. I don't mean to say that Atlanta's run wasn't fun. It was really cool that Eddie Rosario was like, that's weird. But great, but I think it might have felt a little bit different if, you know, they had gotten to Atlanta had gotten to the World Series and Ronald lacuna junior had led them to a win. And they got good performances from some of their players to be sure. And I thought that they were managed very smartly, especially given the injuries, but no, it was not quite the banner World Series offering. I think you're right that Dodgers giants really was the most exciting series of the bunch. And it probably helps that we saw we saw more starters than kind of like we got to enjoy Logan web. We have to talk about, you know, openers, that was fun. So that was a good, that was a good series, but some of the ones that I expected to find the most dynamic kind of disappointed. Like I didn't think that Milwaukee versus Atlanta didn't live up to the billing that I was kind of expecting. And that's not just because I expected Milwaukee to advance. I offered badly Ben. I did not. I did not do well at all in my predictions. I think I maybe got a little too cute. But yeah, I actually ran the table. I picked every series perfectly correctly. I didn't publish my picks anywhere, just because I was not really on record, but you could just take my word for it that I nailed it all. I was actually going to ask you about that whether the braves obviously they surprised, right? I think most people. And if you're an Atlanta fan, I'm sure that you're thrilled to win no matter how you won or who you were. Oh, yeah. So if anything the fact that you're reduced to the dregs of the roster and you're calling up people you haven't seen in months and you still win maybe that makes it sweeter in a way. I don't know just because it wasn't all the usual suspects and you were really just pulling out all the stops to get there. And that fact that you said that, yes, sometimes it just comes down to which team has an incredible month from its bullpen or any other just goes wild for a couple of weeks..

"braves" Discussed on Native America Calling
"These rituals like the tomahawk top and the numbers get up to about 74% of natives who are highly identified are highly effective by the tomahawk chop, for example. And so, you know, the other piece is the more engaged a native person is in activities that are cultural. It's basically a behavioral measure of being native that was created by some other researchers. The more activities you engage is the more offended you are. And what it means is that how we construct our identity matters. And so this idea that people say was just a mascot made of people have more important things to deal with is actually not true. Every one of the things that people commonly list suicide, depression, poverty. The predictors of all of those are identity. And so if you play with our identity is going to affect our young people's chances of building a resilient and strong I think identity. Okay. Let's go back to the phones. We have ray. He's in Cheyenne river, South Dakota and he's listening on KI PI. Ray, you're on the air. Hey, good call. Good call. The listing patiently. Yes, a Tom hock chop, I guess, cool out there. How does four races here on this America and this graduated out there football and basketball, whatever? You've got to keep yourself amused. But there's not an easy that change around here, but of course, when they have the teams on here, they are actually what you do there is people want to call us brave. You know, we're not brave. If you're with us, please people. And we all have teams on here too. And they all have cloud named our within the Native American way of looking at it for that. Hey, look at that. Where the sky hawks are like that on here. We're on our country. So we don't have those issues with the sharp and stuff like that. But we can not be silenced and living tomb. Like, you know, we're still here. You don't really need to hurt us. We can still speak. But if we bring it out, it looks really give us a chance. We're here too. You know, we'd be the same air. With the pandemic and everything, we should all pull together and help these young kids. That's what I told bob. Ray, thank you for those comments. Thank you for your patience waiting on the line for us here. This is a big conversation today. We've got a lot of callers coming in. Let's go to another caller. We have shell. Shell is in fort hall, Idaho, listening on KI, SU. Shell, you're on the air. I'm sure you're almost John. Good morning, John. Yeah. I think they should bury the hatchet and take away the mascot and if they really wanted to honor the natives, you know, they should address problems on their reservation and the depression and the alcoholism and all the limitations that we have, you know, like when we go into the border towns, we racism all the time, you know? And, you know, like, to me, you know, I hope my own way of combating racism, but you know, that gives my sort of ways, you know, there's so many greater things that could happen. Like. The class history and what they teach there, you know? Sure, sure. Yes, yes. Thank you, shell for those comments. I want to ask, I'd like to ask Jacqueline a question regarding education. And I know that the eastern band with their partnership with the braves has justified their partnership as saying it's a great opportunity for us to share our culture and to use this platform of a professional sports partnership as a way to educate and inform people about Cherokee culture, Native American culture. So they see it as this vehicle for education and for awareness. Jacqueline, do you feel a professional sports team, a big sporting event, a stadium? Is that an ideal venue for Native American cultural education? Jacqueline? Yes, it's interesting. I mean, one of the things that we deal with a lot is native people is this constant pressure to commodify our identity. Our traditional identities are based in relationships and kinship in responsibilities to one another. And there's just really this very strong push from the colonial enterprise, which has a very corporate origin story, which I talked about in standoff where starting as joint stock companies funded here to colonize us, right? And of course, under U.S. law, corporations are people, right? And so there's always this real strong force to basically create a sort of commodification of sell it to have a numerical value, right? And so I think that anytime we engage in that and we sort of have a transfer of our own traditional ideas and turn them into a commodification to a corporate model, because professional teams are exist to make money. That's their prime directive, right? Is financial. And profit driven. And so when we try to transpose our culture, which, as I point off and stand up, our origin stories are based on the completely different model of being on land, we're not here to occupy other people's homelands and export their wealth to the ruling class. That's a definition of a colonist, right? We're here because we have these long-standing relationships with the land itself. And I give a very distinct definition of indigenous people, which is there are people who have an origin story based in meeting with a sacred being who is a manifestation of self meeting their agreements made, whether it's with a Dakota Lakota people is with the white buffalo calf woman our arc becoming a people the great plains and our relationship with the fossilization. And this is a really different model than what you're talking about when you're talking about these corporate marketing sort of venues. And the chance has transposing that to that model, you basically destroy it, right? So I don't think that you can do that. I think that basically becomes something else becomes a commodity. Commodity, right? And as far as to whether or not the tomahawk chop represents Cherokee culture, I would leave that to Cherokee people to say, and so there is there are other things there are two other federally recognized Cherokee nations. You might have an opinion on that. And there is, I think one of our callers was from Spokane Washington and I should say my sister is a graduate of eastern Washington University as well and my nephew is there right now. And but that's a Spokane baseball team that they actually use the actual word in the language for their team name now. I mean, there are ways to make a specificity if you really want to mascot and sell your culture. You can do that with a great deal of specificity. That's particular only to your nation, right? You don't have to involve things that will bring in stereotypes and raise stereotypes about other people, children that will have to contend with to have nothing to do with your nation. So I think so yeah, I don't think that it's possible and I don't think that there's two models have different goals. Fundamentally different goals that one will be will just seem all over the other. So they are in control of the tours. They're not just directing right this horse is going. They're just along for the ride. So they won't have the education they want to have is not possible in this venue. And it's I think the explanation is not entirely. It's not relevant quite frankly. And so I mean, you might want to have relationship. Yeah, sure. Yeah. And it's interesting. The braves have cited this partnership with the eastern band Cherokee locate. They're about a 160 miles away in western North Carolina, but you also have the catawba. They're a friend of recognized tribe. They're in Rock Hill, South Carolina. They're only about another 80 miles past that. They're about 235 miles from Atlanta. You also have the porch band of creek Indians, they're based in atmore, Alabama, there are only about four hours away as well. So even in that region there are other tribal stakeholders. Let's go back to our phones. We have TC in Santa Fe, New Mexico listening on Ku and M, TC, you're on the air. Well, thank you, sir. Thank you for digging my call a long time listener. First time caller, one of your prior callers, just mentioned gung Ho we should pull together reminds me of my service to this country and I have a lot of native brothers and sisters here. I call brothers from other global mothers. And the labeling of our society, labeling the different groups is not uniting us. And the reverend Jesse Jackson during a Democratic National Convention said America is not a blanket. We are a patchwork quilt with many common bonding threads, I really love that quote of his and I think it's part of a native history and both American history is the reason I believe the Washington D.C. NFL mascot should be the code talkers. Maybe I'm a little subjective, not enough objective, as I said in the Marine Corps, but I just think it's so obvious. Well, thank you for those comments TC that's definitely an interesting idea there with the code talkers for the team name for the Washington professional football club. I also like your quote brothers from other global mothers. I like that one. I think I'm gonna have to start stealing that one. We have time for just one more caller before we're gonna have to wrap up today. I'd like to go to Anthony in rosebud, South Dakota and he is listening on KO YA, Anthony, you're on the air. Oh, let's take a look. This is Anthony from those word along crazy always Kenya and I would like to say object to some of the bondage. Even if the college team, but for the team that's read to that horse and comes in, that's not really focusing on the trade, but we are living those broken promises and book and treaties and they need to recognize those before they glorify us. Well, let me thank you for those comments and I think you voiced the concerns and the thoughts of a lot of Native American people who feel the same way and are definitely struggling with this issue. Many different formats. So again, wonderful show today and fortunately we're out of time, but I do want to thank our guests, Jacqueline keeler, and doctor Stephanie, Freiburg. Again, talking about Native American sports themed mascots and imagery. Any more listeners who want to comment, please go to our web page. You can comment online. We're back again with another live show tomorrow. When we'll hear about the financial side of going through the big D and no, we don't mean Dallas,.

So Michael, thank you for calling in and sharing your comments. Greatly appreciated. We're going to have to go to break here in just about another minute. But when we come back, I do want to go back to our other guest today, doctor Stephanie Freiburg, and I'm going to ask her a question regarding just some of these stereotypes and how as a society, we have different views on different stereotypes. And it was interesting how Jaclyn mentioned just amongst our own native nations, how we view different tribal stereotypes differently through a different perspective simply because of being members of different tribes. So really, really fascinating discussion. Lots of great information good callers, good guests. Anybody else that would like to join our discussion?

Seizures are a symptom of epilepsy, one in ten people will have at least one seizure over the course of their lifetime. But the reality is that many seizures go unnoticed or are mistaken for something else. November is national epilepsy awareness month and Native American heritage month. 51,000 Native Americans are living with epilepsy. You can save a life, registration for a no charge seizure recognition and first aid certification training is available at learn dot epilepsy dot com from the epilepsy foundation who supports this show. This is native America calling. I'm Sean spruce. After years of complaints, about a native themed, mascot and imagery, the Atlanta Braves appear to be trying to avoid addressing the issue during their appearance in the World Series. There's still time to join our conversation about sports teams using native mascots and imagery. Call us one 809 9 6 two 8 four 8. And I'd like to go back to our other guest today, doctor Stephanie, Freiburg and talk a little bit more about the research and the data regarding this polarizing issue. Doctor freyberg, I think it's interesting how as a society we've come to rationalize so many of these stereotypes. Is there a way to gauge this, for example, I think we're all in agreement that blackface is repugnant. However, so many of us are not ready to condemn.

A pole just released by morning consult says less than a third of Americans think the controversial tomahawk chop should be banned. Which side are you on? Give us a call. One 800 9 9 6 two 8 four 8. I'd like to go to our second guest on the show today, doctor Stephanie, Freiburg. Doctor freyberg, you've done extensive research with regard to native mascots and their impact on native people, particularly children. Can you review the highlights of your research, what is the impact in the long run? How does it impact people, especially young people? Yes. To answer the question, I'm actually going to draw both from my research and from other studies that have been sent. I think it's important for people to recognize that there's dozens of studies showing psychological harm. I mean, the field has grown so much. The research has grown so much. So we know, for example, from the work that my team did, but exposing native used to native mascots decreases self esteem. It decreases community worth or the way it's measured. It really is without like, do I have a young person who thinks that my tribal community has the ability and resources to improve itself so you know how confident or efficacious do I feel about my community's future? And then it also affects achievement related goals. So when it's most native mass class is decreases achievement related goals. And so beyond that, there's other excellent workouts that are showing that for native people, it increases stress, depression and suicide ideation. I mean, there's literally no psychological benefits for indigenous people at all with being used as native themed nests. Or game day rituals. I mean, there's just no psychological benefit whatsoever. So when we hear people say oh, it's these are symbols of pride. These are symbols of empowerment. These are symbols of our rich tradition in history. No data to support those claims. Absolutely not. And in fact, what's more interesting like in my opinion, right? Is there some great cases of activists on people who native people who are out protesting at games who are sit on discriminated against, you know, here draw the terms. And that actually lines up better with the data. So there's studies showing that these masks increase discrimination against native people, the likelihood that native peoples view stereotypes as aggressive as savages or primitives, these last basically portray us as well as of the past and reassign people's beliefs that we are well expect the test are worth within diverse future study shows that 40% of Americans don't believe that native people still exist. So we're allowing our image where our representation can come out in these popular romantic representations, but it does not require Americans to account for the situation of contemporary native people. To address many injustices that our people continue to face in the United States. Whether we're talking about disproportionate, please violence, a lack of access to clean drinking water, right to spend in the news recently underfunded education and healthcare systems. All of these issues are related and so it's really looking at bigger view of this issue of really important. Now the aftermath of the death of George Floyd prompted huge changes across our country. Not only socially, but also with regard to institutions and companies. And I think it's very clear that these earlier team changes that occurred in Washington and Cleveland, obviously there was a strong activist movement to change those names for many, many years, but ultimately, I think the whole social justice movement that has just completely taken hold over the last year and a half really was that breaking point. That tipping point for those teams to finally make the change. However, I do feel in some sense that the heat is turned down a little bit, we're not maybe focusing as much of attention as we were a year ago or even 6 months ago on some of these issues. Has the moment passed to seriously address these what scientifically proven to be harmful messages and imagery that we're seeing with regard to native mascots and stereotypes and sports. Oh, I do not think it's past. And you're seeing space banning the use of these masks in schools. I think what we're seeing is the pendulum swung with the George Floyd murder. It really made people I think start to rethink what racism looks like. So I think a lot of Americans were able to distance themselves from racism and to think about racist ideas, discrimination and prejudice, as feeding in the minds of a few bad apples. But what's happened now is we recognize this go into systems. And I think that awakening for American League awakening. Now it is interesting to see how those who would prefer that we privilege what it means to be American above all else. You know, our China hard to push this back, right? So we're seeing it in other movements that are happening. We can think about the anti critical race theory movement in schools. But what's driving that is a recognition that this focus on systemic is undoing systems that privilege whiteness. And the vast emergency room comfortable. And I think what we're going to see is these issues are going to continue to go push forward, come back, that tenderloin will go and swing as it will. But what's important to note is this issue is not going away. I mean, one the literature continues to grow about the psychological harm in fact the only one who benefits from native mashups are white people. And there are studies showing they get a boost in self esteem. They like other white people more who wear these masks but when you look at some of the data nationally in our study of native masks among native people, you also see that young native people are not having this. The more savvy more aware, I mean they are, we just see so much fire and grit and motivation to make change and to be seen as contemporary people among our use today. I mean, it is obviously. Let's go to the phones. We have OJ, listening in dulce, New Mexico on K UNM. OJ, you're on.
The Woke Crowd Must Be Fuming Over Atlanta Hosting the World Series
"Of course, the big World Series, I really followed much of the World Series other than I'm pretty excited about the Atlanta Braves. Considering what Major League Baseball stupidly did to the city of Atlanta and all the business owners, I saw somebody this morning on TV say that what these businesses lost in revenue by having the All-Star Game moved out of Atlanta over George's common sense election reform laws, they've more than made up for with the World Series. That I think was governor Brian Kemp on Fox and Friends this morning said that. So I mean, Stacey Abrams and the woke crowd has to be really mad at the World Series winding up in Atlanta.

Soler Hits First True World Series Leadoff HR
"Hey, ladies and gentlemen, it is rare that I note something in the sports world as an opener. But I thought you would find this of interest even if you don't follow baseball. Or any other sport for that matter. So the World Series is taking place right now. Between the Houston Astros and the Atlanta Braves. The Atlanta Braves representing the national league Houston Astros who can not make up their mind which league they would like to play in are in the American League. Something happened last night. That never happened before in the history of baseball. I'm serious. I love that stuff. As one of the players said, there aren't many firsts left. That the batter in the in a World Series game be opening batter, hit a home run. It's happened at the bottom of the first, but not at the top of the first. There you go. I am sure. That at least 4% of you found that fascinating. Welcome to the show. Where we indeed do talk about everything in life. For whatever reason, I'm finding interesting, perhaps because I very close friend on the Atlanta Braves. Very special, very special human being, as it turns out. All right, everybody Dennis prieger here. There was a group called the anti. By the way, Sean, did you happen to hear what I announced? You missed it. He went out to get some papers for the show. So he's excused. First time in World Series history, a batter opened up the World Series with a home run. That's, say, see, he's moved. He is one of the 4%. And the guy who did it was at last series with COVID. So ah, so it's another first. He is the first guy to be out with COVID to hit a home run at the opening of a World Series.
"braves" Discussed on The Lead
"Wise or wherever you listen. So David, the braves got off to a strong start in this series, but they had a pretty devastating loss in game three, pulling a three run lead in the 8th inning. Way back right center field. Cody Bellinger strikes again. And of course they had two O and three one leads against the Dodgers in last year's NLCS. Ended up losing. So how fresh is that loss from last season in their minds now? The guys that were on that team remember it clearly, like it was yesterday, but it's not intimidating for them because if anything, a couple of would like to vindicate themselves for that because they knew they had that series under control. So rather than look and be fearful of it, they know they should have won that series last year and the huge, huge difference in this year's last year they had their rotation in that series was max freed who had never had a postseason start before last year's postseason and three rookies. That was literally their rotation last three rookies who had never made a postseason start where the rotation behind max freed last year. This year, huge differences that they've got Charlie Morton, the most accomplished starting pitcher of the past 5 postseasons. Max freed, who pitched great in last year's postseason. Ian Anderson, who had a .96 ERA and four postseason starts as a rookie last year, that's the three guys this year. Then they have to piece it together and gain four that plan is to use a bullpen game. So that's the only really questionable thing. And then you go to max freed again in 5 and you have even Anderson for 6 and Charlie Morton and game 7, who's literally the best winner go home pitcher in postseason history. He has never lost a postseason start in a winner take all game 7 or a wild card game. We'll finally David, it's been more than 25 years since the braves did one World Series. It's still a big F but if they can get past the Dodgers, does this team have what it takes to beat either the Red Sox or the Astros and bring home that championship? Oh, absolutely. I think the toughest obstacle everybody looked at was gonna be the Dodgers or the Giants in the LCS. I mean, those were the two best teams during the season. I know the Astros played great in the second half, and they got a huge loaded lineup, but it was questionable whether they were even going to get past their ALCS. And the Red Sox are a team kind of like the braise that was flawed and overcame adversity during the season. That kind of thing. But I think the braves have a chance to be a good chance to beat anybody because of the three starting pitchers they have that can stack up with anybody. And they knew that going into the LCS. They knew that their three starting pitchers regardless of what the overall ERAs were as good or better than the Dodgers three since the all star break. Because that's what counted. I think of the big Dodge in the LCS and nobody else did that I know of. But that's why I thought they did because the starting pitching. That and the big guns they got in the lineup for a while. I think they have a chance to win the World Series this year. Wow. Well, thanks so much, David. And please let us know if you see any curls at Dodger Stadium during the games this week. I think we'll see some, but I don't know. You have to be a great fan to wear them at Dodger Stadium with a brace Jersey or something, because that's gonna be a rough crowd.

"Welcome back baseball family. Thanks for taking a quick break with us and sticking around we are going to jump back into our atlanta. Braves mount rushmore. We've got at least two names to come. We don't know where we'll overlap for the next ones we already had one overlap. This time. it's very common for us. I'm sure overlap. I mean we'll save it for the last one galop on that one because it's pretty common concerns us. I'm going to say what is assuming that might be my next one actually. Should we save it because we know what's going to happen. Well let's say yeah. Okay all right all right. You want me to go next. Yeah you okay all right so my next one is actually dale murphy for me. Del murphy is the best player to never make the hall of fame. Okay that You know someday he might make it in with the culture club. Yep you know. The i don't remember. The name is what we call him a culture. Yeah we do. So del murphy. The two time all star back to back all star at that nine thousand nine hundred. Nineteen eighty-three sorry. Not all-star and ep bigger deal now. Not all sir back-to-back. Mvp star four time silver slugger five time gold glove and i feel like that's a really big deal that he's not in the hall of fame he had. He had a good peek from eight hundred. Eighty seven where he was all sorts of like i said seven seasons. Yeah the though here brig. I think why he didn't get into the hall of fame is because he's a lifetime to sixty five hitter. Yeah j. that's probably why three ninety eight three hundred ninety eight home runs of the over the course of eighteen year career dab batting averages low for the era. Yeah but Here's the thing though. Kate outfielder first baseman. Those are offense first positions. Yeah but del murphy was a catcher yet he was he's he spent them First two years of his career. Now i wouldn't say majority but he spent he came up as a catcher kit which is a defense position. Extremely very much. Yes you know the until recently. And that's only because those guys are anomalies. Something's going you know. Yeah like buster. Posey's billick was like the really first big power hitting catcher which is funny. 'cause it's not that big and he's not that yes has yeah. I feel like if you walk down the street of buster posey and average job. They would look right. But if you see gary sanchez you like. That's and cracking huge dude. he's huge. Yeah you know. But but i i like having come up as a catcher..
"braves" Discussed on The Bronx Pinstripes Show - Yankees MLB Podcast
"It was life changing money and yes, there's a lot of security in that. But that that was the deal that really aroma league even like I talked to people that just could not believe. It was weird he he's according to baseball reference which might overinflate war. He was a five point to win player last year there. I mean he's worth three times that contract. Oh, at at least I mean. Accused again was value and he he's guaranteed about hundred million and he's not. Two and a half times as good as obvious. Well, I mean, he will be a free agent though even if those two club options are picked up, he'll be in his thirty year, which is not the worst thing. Yeah. It's just the numbers I mean the the length was perfectly fine. That's kind of a normal extension in terms of length. It was just the he didn't really get any. There was no reason for him to sign an extension of that was what was offered. Yeah. The braves are not really sacrificing anything there. It's also replaced on the players standpoint. So on is more power to the braves if you can get the player to agree to that that helps you. Yet. Your team immensely was because I don't think they're willing to go over the top luxury tax threshold like some other teams will right that. That was the thing about this is that I I felt conflicted because a lot of braves fans you know that care about the braves in the braves only were kind of not mad at me but just like you know why why does it matter? It's radio for the braves and like I'm not saying this not it's an incredible the brace I'm just trying to say like it's not a good deal frosty Albee's and you have to try to care about your player at some point and it was just a legendarily bad job anyway on. Helps them. Yeah. Do you remember Peres Salvador Perez for the Royal Sign. Lake. Something crazy like a six year seven million dollar deal with you royals and then he was like the best catcher in baseball for a couple of years and they actually redid the contract with them. Are This is so bad that maybe that's a situation where the we'll feel like actually feel bad but I doubt because the brain home-buying again, they see a a corporate conglomerate they don't probably care too much about, but ASI is on the level of a player that is so underpaid that it's GonNa look just silly if he's if he's still this player four or five years from now, it's going to look silly it really is..
"braves" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"Them through because we really need you strong and healthy and September and October. If this is this is. Essentially away that, that free agents operating, perhaps. And I know. And you know Boris will spin this really positively for his client. So maybe there's another side to it, which is just keep an eye on whether this is something that occurs again from the brace respective love it. I, I agree with you. The money's fine. They need a guy like that, or they love to have him. They get them. I think it's a win win for the Atlanta Braves. And a makes that that division. And those two teams made these moves the Braves and cubs. Stand out to me along with the dodgers. Yeah. And we'll get to Dallas Kohl's, you know, the handling of this from Scott Boris in a moment. But I, I you know, during the course wintertime, Alex, and topless general manager of the Braves got a lot of criticism because the Phillies were loading up the Mets been lot to load up. The, the national spin on Patrick Corbin. And I remember I in spring training talking with FREDDY Freeman about the decisions that the Braves front office made he goes, look, I. I love the fact that we kept all of our pitching. No other team has more young pitching and the brave society. You know what we're going to keep that I mean issue and we've all these guys. But we don't know exactly who's going to turn out. We're going to give them ninety develop. They signed Josh Donaldson on a one year deal. They now have Kyko on a one year deal, and they still have all those prospects and they move forward and clearly at some point to probably going to try to upgrade their bullpen before the trade deadline. I think they're gonna wind up to this is all going to turn out very well for them because he wasn't too aggressive and didn't overreact and trade to pitching prospects to get a, a veteran starter. I like that from from their perspective. I agree with you quarrel about the Braves in the National League east. Look, I picked them to go to the World Series before the year started. I feel better about that pick. Now, I would agree. I look, I think what Alex did and the Braves of done and maybe other teams will do so who don't who don't sign Bryce Harper. Who don't make that big. Deal for the veterans starter and give up two thirds of their great pitching farm system, pieces is they used the first three months of the regular season to see where they were going to be at. And if they were improving but not nearly in the race in the east. They don't make this decision to sign Kyko. They have seen the I you know, April, may and June begin to play out and say, we, we always good as those teams we can compete now we fortify. And that's where Dallas Kyko comes in. We, we are fortifying they allow themselves not to commit thirteen million dollars or whatever the exact figure turns out to be until they knew what they were. And as you said, you know, saroka and freed Fulton. Avid, hasn't really been great yet. You, you add to that mix. You assume Fulton Avis comes back. They're really good. And you're right. Not now they're in a position like the Phillies like the cubs too. I thought had to do something because they are in that, that win now window. That they had to do something. That's why to your point, I think Alex play this beautifully. Let's let the kids show us what they got. You know, we've told FREDDY Freeman we're going to be good in two or three years. Well, that got that clock got accelerated. Let's talk about this situation from Keiko's perspective is a pitcher. You mentioned Brian McCann. He goes to the National League east with the offenses aren't going to be as strong so you love it from that perspective..
