Pavelski Ties Game in 3rd, Stars fall in Game 4 in OT

"The net. And what point I think everyone was surprised The puck came to appoint a Lord Duck behind that point was wide open in front. And he put that it's too too. You know, this was a gutsy when in a lot of ways, the adversity this team faced during this game, he figure Look, Dallas goes up to nothing. Klingberg and Pavelski and you're thinking, all right. This isn't going away. Tampa Bay anticipate then Brayden point. It's a goal late. In that first period, then he gets another one in the second early on too tight. It's too on the power play. Corey Perry made it three to Gord tied it up 33. Killorn in the third period throws one at the Net. Beautiful shot at 6 41 layer up 43 You're feeling all right? This is it. Here we go. But then Pavelski gets that golden 11 35. Fortuitous bounce makes it for four. But then you get into this situation where you had braid and points get called for an embellishment along with Perry. You go for on four and then 37 seconds into the overtime. Dallas goes on the power play. It's four on three and they had some dangerous looks. But you know, Jamie Benn Does have some bad timing when it comes to penalties throughout his career and lighting made him pay for that it's Kevin Shattenkirk getting the goal from headmen marooned at 6 34. To get the power play goal there and the lightning or three for four on the power play. We're gonna get some players some, but can I want to get your thoughts and just how this game transpire if I thought, you know a lot of highs and lows and With lightning with their star power and they're scoring ability. You never felt like they were completely out of this game and I just I really impressed with their win tonight. I am to it. I'm impressed. I really think braiding points goal when the lightning fell down early was huge, and you could just see it the confidence that he's playing with the emotion. After some of those goals. I mean, they realized you could see they're so close to the ultimate goal and they're stopping at nothing to get there, and that's evident in their play on the ice, and I thought Dallas put forth a really good performance tonight and it really could have been anyone's game in the end. But once again, it's the special teams battle. And although I thought Dallas certainly cut back on some of the undisciplined penalties, they were not able to get their penalty kill, crush them. The Lightning went three for four on the power play, and you know they had every opportunity in the overtime. With the man advantage to get it done, and it's the lightning who keeps finding ways to come from behind and win. So it's not always gonna be pretty. But I think each player even looking at Janni gored again. You're just seeing different guy. Step up and, you know, play those tough minutes and I thought the lightning you know Michigan and Phil Esposito had said. I thought they did carry playfor more stretches. And although Dallas had their moments on, they surged at times, Vasilevskiy came in the end with a couple big pad saves. And unfortunately huge open couldn't quite make the timely wants to keep his team there. And you know when they when they had the chance to help him out and get a power play goal, they didn't do it either. Now again, let's go to

"brayden" Discussed on Newsradio 970 WFLA

"Boston. We do that after every round and you know We get a list of the top plays the nominees for the top 10, and then we go through and rank them ourselves, and we submit our lists, and I'm looking at these plays and about halfway through. I'm looking at a play that the point made against Torey Krug the first goal of Game four, where he's just stick handling down low until he's able to find Andre plot in front of the net for Ah, beauty of a one timer, and I'm just marveling at how dynamic of a play that was, and I looked at my list. And it was like the fifth highest rated play I had from Bremen point in that Siri's. There were four other plays that I had that I thought were even more dynamic than that. That really made me realize you're just you know what level another level that this guy has come to so far and this 2020 post season. Do you think that people around the NHL really get A sense of just how good Brayden point is, or is it just here in Tampa Bay that we know how good he is? I think if they didn't know before this postseason, they do now. I think everybody around the league was aware of the speed of Brayden point and that he was, you know, an up and coming young. Centerman that was, you know, gonna have Ah, bright future ahead of him. But now looking at his play, especially in the postseason, he's certainly solidified himself as elite among top players. Even on the lightning's, you know, star studded roster. He's right up there with the Nikita Kucherov is in a way, and they have a much different game. You know, Couture of has a way of slowing things down just like a Patrick Kane does. And you can marvel at the skill and the intelligence. The hockey a cue. Their ability to be unpredictable. But I think breaking point you know it takes a really great player to be able to play with players like who drove and Stamkos and brain point Since coming into the league has played his way into that number one center position. He's proven to be among some of the best players in the NHL now both on the score sheet on and his impact with the Lightning. He's one of the best players on Really the best player the best teams in the NHL right now on paper, So he's He's definitely done some things When you talked about that goal against crew that completely stands out to me in my mind throughout this playoffs. I mean, he just slowed things down in that instance and just dumbing around two top four defensemen, the best defenseman on the bones team, arguably and You know that line was so dynamic in that Siri's, and he was a huge reason for that. He could do everything I remember the play where he kind of was in the blowout victory Game three. But he kind of nutmeg, his own teammate Nikita Kucherov at the blue line and to carry the puck into the zone and then blew by. I think it was Brandon Carlo just had this really silky smooth play, or he went like Behind the back and then between his legs to get Ah, step on Carlo and then swung a park out in front for Kuchar. Often he had ah, neat little backhander through the five hole of a lock to to finish that one off that that to me was just one of the greatest place. I think from this playoffs for the lightning, so we know Alex Killorn isn't going to play tonight. We don't know about point yet. We know how exploring isn't gonna play. Who do you think comes into the lineup for chlorine? I think that's going to be interesting to see what the coaches say You have some great options. Obviously, you know, talking about the depth of the lightning, but Got three for words probably chomping at the bit in Mitchell Stevens Carter Hagi, who have both seen playoff action in the Columbus Siri's were then you've also got Matthew Joseph sitting on the sideline as well. And all three of those players kind of bring something different to the ice. I think without breaking point in the lineup when we talked about it earlier, burns E. I think bringing in another centerman is a good idea and a player like Mitchell Stevens, who's you know he's got speed. He can place penalty killing minutes. He can Kind of be put in different situations and earn the trust of the coaching staff and Julian Breeze Bar earlier in the regular season before the pause, Um to just play in all situations, and I think, especially where the Lightning needs some help. Right now is the face ofthe circle. They struggled quite a bit. In Game two against the Islanders. They've had good games of bad games, but I think where they really were really hurt them was on the special teams. They were two for 13 short handed in the face ofthe circles, so I think they could use a boost there. And who knows? Stevens could be that guy and also had some depth of the center position. But No. You talked about it earlier to Matthew Joseph Speed, and now he could be a great option to just bring some energy reek a little bit of havoc and and throw everything. He's got four checking to try toe, you know, possession. That's going to be the name of the game tonight. Whoever possesses the puck and makes the least amount of mistakes. In a game that's going to be as well defended as I think it could be is going to be key. Yeah, he wonder if it is ah, and might even be Mitchell Stevens. If it's Alex. If it's just Alex Killorn. That's not able play if points able to play Cologne. We know it's not going to play. Maybe you go with Mitchell Stevens there to protect freedom point a little bit, if you're if you're not quite sure if he's going to be able to give you a full effort, I think certainly I don't think he'd be in the lineup if he's not 100% Or close to it, But maybe you try to protect him a little bit by bringing in another centerman taking some of that responsibility off of its plate. Another thing that kind of taken to account the lightning have gone with his 11 and seven alignment. Since Game two of the second round series against Boston. It's worked out wonderfully for them six straight games. Now that they've played with the 11 and seven alignment there, six. You know in those situations. Do you think this changes anything for the lightning? In that regard? Whether or not obviously CA Lauren's out, maybe points out. Do you think this changes whether or not they go 11 and seven? If, say, both of those guys aren't able to play tonight? Yeah, Both of those players aren't able to play. Obviously, I mean, it's going to be tough Brayden point. It's tough, tough shoes to fill, but they're going to need some more depth at the forward position. For sure. I think they'd like to create more often than they did in Game two and Part of what gave them success in Game one was just getting pucks on that Islamic done on headmen, both just putting shots on that defenseman staying active and getting traffic in front of the net. So I think, you know, getting the D engaged in And establishing the four check is going to be important. They've had success obviously going 11 and seven You know you've you've mentioned Kevin Shattenkirk before burns. He talking about the ability to Kind of put different defenseman and more opportunistic situations offensively, so I don't know. I think Coop likes what he's been seeing, but obviously without breaking point in Cologne in the lineup that kind of throws a wrench in In the plan, so I think it's going to be interesting..

Starting Zocdoc with Oliver Kharraz

How I Built This

Starting Zocdoc with Oliver Kharraz

"Oliver Karaz was born and raised in Germany mostly in rural parts of the country his mother was German and his father was from Iran in came from a long line of doctors. For me, it really starts in some ways with my dad and. The timing rapidly had every reason to become a social activist and and so he came to Germany from the Middle East when he was very young around twenty with no money in his pocket no language skills. And you personally then worked on of odd jobs, but he eventually became a psychiatrist but what has really shaped me much more than being born in Berlin is. Social. Active. Isn't that I that I saw him live and that he really made our family mattress we always talked about talent responsibility and the need to use. Whatever telling behind to help those. Around us that we can make a difference. Given that your father was Iranian and your mother was was sort of. German. An Uber even though you were born in Germany, did you feel did you feel as Germany everybody else? So I didn't have a second identity. We only used spoke German at home and yet. As you say I was also a not always fully accepted. So if I give you an example, my school twelve hundred students and you could pick out to the didn't look like everyone else and I was one of them right and even an enlightened country like Germany. That is notable. So I had what I call a visual accent would people would see me on the street and they would ask me how to speak German. So well and But they also school the skipped my name when reading out scores because they weren't sure how to pronounce my last name and opportunities taken away and even at was physically threatened so i. I think that really shaping in many ways because I realized. Very early that in order to be as successful as everyone around me I would have to be dramatically better in really work much much harder than anyone else and so that used to be strong work ethic in me. For the record Oliver is somewhat down playing his work ethic. Because just out of high school, he actually started his first successful company. It was the early clunky days of the Internet, and he designed a way to help people send emails more easily and he wound up selling that business not for a ton of money, but enough to get him through medical school. But. After practicing medicine for a couple years Oliver realized he couldn't stop thinking about that first business he'd started and how he wanted to start another. So he quit his job in medicine and consulting job with Mackenzie and eventually moved to New York. That was my goal was actually to start another company that that's A. Healthcare, but I I'd also realized at the time that I sold my first company and far too cheaply in that I should learn more about business I and at McKinsey God exposure to balance sheets and panels and hit a lot of very practical experience and what it means to manage business. And I think they fondly of my time at McKinsey was one of my better decisions. McKinsey GonNa Mackenzie is a little bit like going to business school. A lot of people at McKinsey have come from business, schools. In that. Many people go to business school thinking they will find a co-founder. Did you were you actively looking around at your colleagues to think maybe I can do something with him or her you know maybe that person. Absolutely and were you just thinking about different business ideas all the time? Well, it is actually very hard to find good ideas and my definition of a good idea was that it needed to have a great mission I. wanted to make sure that we actually do something good in that. We stayed true to sort of talent breaks responsibility, but also wanted to be a large market and to have a great motor rounded and also I wanted to be based on contrarian inside. Because I thought that all of the best companies have that at its core. While she wanted mission, you wanted a company that could kind of dominate its field by building a motor around it, but was also contrary and that's that's that's those are some interesting. Criteria. And that's why I screen for several years rejected pretty much every idea that that I came across And meanwhile. While you're going through all that I guess you meet this guy Cyrus Masumi. WHO's another McKenzie consultant and and just you just. Become friends like he's like somebody like in and you guys start hanging out. While we got put on study together that required us to travel globally and you've ever done that it meant frost were sixteen eighteen hour days together for three four, five months on end and we really. Got To become great partners in that and and what we realized that we had some. Very complementary skills. Cyrus is one of the most charismatic and gregarious individuals. You'd ever meet his very passionate. He could be more forceful, which sometimes was needed to be effective with clients. And you've talked to me now for a little bit as you can probably tell. More dispassionate and logical and more measuring. German? More, German in many ways, right. also was effective with clients by by. and Cyrus is American right? He's American this but that That close listened and how we work together that really started friendship and we stayed close for the study and be caught up over lunch pretty regularly denounce different business ideas off one another and. I think we connected because we had similar interests because. On. Some levels We were equally passionate about what we're doing higher says, passion was more visible to others than mine but we. Were close enough together that we both accepted. The other as. individual that that we could learn a lot from. Was it was it clear pretty soon after you start hanging out, Sarah's that this was the guy because you were. You're on the lookout for a partner. They I think it was was absolutely an option I know reality is that. With. Both founded companies before Mckinsey and we both knew that we wanna do it again and as I. was always great about being. Very honest. Rather than just nice and and I value that a lot. Yeah. All, right. So So this guy, Cyrus Super Charismatic, really smart clearly, the two of you start to to work together. And what what kind of business ideas are are you coming up with? While we kind of fell in love with a new idea that came about a one of these launches were Cyrus. Told me about how he recently ruptured his eardrum by flying with a cold and then found it very difficult to actually find a doctor and he had asked for recommendations and called down his insurance directory listing started with the as. Doctors weren't accepting new patients some no longer accepted two centurions one provider Pasta Way and so he said, well, why does it take four days to the doctor when I'm in pain right? And why can't this much easier? And we. Both very quickly. realized the potential of this idea from. Working at project be new helps us the for actually spending millions of dollars for marketing to grow their patient base because they had wasted inventory, right they had something that I like to call hidden supply, which is these last minute cancellations no-shows reschedules. That the that go to waste, and then on the other, there are the patients who had a hard time accessing this. You thought it immediately clicked with these my God. Yes. Doctor's appointments connect patients to doctors. Yeah. Well, look if you go through the forfeiture that I had read, it's a great mission right? We're making one of the most personal needs more accessible for for patients we can help patients to get in fast we can help the doctors become more efficient. We can make the entire health care system more cost effective people out of the emergency room things like that, and it's a marketplace. So there is a strong mode and clearly anything in healthcare is a large market and I think the contrary and inside that we had. was. The fact that. Most people thought it's normal that people have to wait twenty four days to a doctor because there's a doctor shortage in read our inside was really no doctors have asthma debate ability because of these last minute cancellations, no-shows reschedules and so I felt very about this idea. So. So you member like how long between the time that the you had that first conversation To the time were both you said, let's start this business was like monster or weeks or days. was was weeks. We what we what we started doing is actually. Mocking up the side in how imagine back then in powerpoint pointing just the wire. Website. Yeah. Wire frame. Exactly. We would. We'd go into starbucks and we'll chat up strangers and say, Hey, here's a five dollar gift card. Give me your thoughts. Sorry I'm GonNa. Go back. You just go to people in starbucks Gift Card and say, can you give me your thoughts? Random Person? The absolutely that's that was sort of our market testing. They wouldn't. They would be like excuse me this is a little weird. You're my space. Might also happen from time to time but you know there's lots of people on starbucks is very in German of you. That's debris because usually he would be to report tentative about doing that. Well, you know I think there was a lot less rejection than you think people actually quite open I. Suggest you try this out but if you If you're unthreatening in Luke harmless as we probably dead and then they'll be pretty open. You went up to and starbucks and you'd say, Hey, we're thinking about a company here. Can you just look at his powerpoint give you five dollars Gift Card and what was in the powerpoint, the popcorn and was just what we thought. This website would look like and we would ask them is the set service that resonates with you would you use it and and we got an incredibly valuable feedback here and really set us in many ways on the on the right track right? So and what pointed to the two of you decide let's quit McKinsey. Let's. Let's pursue this. Probably a month or two after we initially discussed idea did anybody say you were crazy for quitting? Everyone. Everyone told us. Crazy and got a lot of negative feedback on the idea to write people would say this is Bloomberg out I would never pick my doctor on the internet or I already have a doctor or you know doctors wouldn't accept patients that that are looking on the Internet of all kinds of protections that people had when they were thinking about their own situation by. When when you talk to people and starbucks, they actually thought about it much more positively. So we were encouraged enough to say, well, this is going to work as long as we get out of our circle and don't ask McKinsey consultants doctors. The responsible be better. All right. So you are in your thirties at this point. And presumably were making pretty good cash at McKinsey because you were probably you'd know expenses you're on the road all the time so. When you quit, I'm assuming you had some money to launch the business and probably live off for a while. Yeah. So I very deliberately had never raised my living standard to the money that the paying McKinsey and I had saved every dime so that I could. No be in a position where can fund this embraced can afford not to take a salary for a couple of years. Wow. So so a couple of hundred thousand and you saved. You know. Maybe. I'm to Germany to discuss personal finances but. I had. Built this. Radio, you can tell the. Story Yeah I I had I had enough money to live off for for several years but I also Saturday night both finance the company early out of our own savings so that clearly diminish We had leftover after that. So now, you both decided to quit. and. You have some technical expertise because you had. You had done some coding but this is next level stuff. Were you able to be that technology founder and Cyrus was going to be the the sort of the business founder? Absolutely not as I add coated but at that point, I had not touched a computer for a long time We knew we need to have a technical co founder and so Sarah's knew a guy named Nick Guanzhou from the time together, trophy software, and this is another company that they would both worked at the that's the company that they're both previously worked together and Nick just brought a totally different perspective and really educated Addison me on a lot of things and and he was really the one who understood a building a seamless experience for the consumer and ends May. Zach Docs. Early Genius, did you did you have the name dock from the beginning? Not, not initially we we went to several phases on on what the right name could be for for while we wanted to have a descriptive name. So we looked at physicians, dot Com Doctors Dot Com, and we actually tracked down the owners of one of these domains and they wanted several million dollars for the domain name. And and we were finding the company ourselves. So that was out of the question. So then we just sat in a room and we brainstorm a list of fifty or one hundred names, and then started eliminating names until we arrived at Dr. What does it mean? or it doesn't mean anything which was the WTO bit we could. There were zero search results. Okay. There's no meaning behind his ACH. There's no meaning behind and and in hindsight it was precisely the right thing to do because it really was a blank slate for us to fill with with meaning and really build a brand around. Zero such as October we started. It address nate the right lake once you know that it takes more than three weeks from picking up the phone and dialing for doctors till you actually see someone you realize Oh, this really not much else that we have to wait so long for to get. And this is more important than most of these other things you already have. Fantastic access View Magin. If air travel way that healthcare workers that wouldn't be an expedia that wouldn't even be Delta Dot Com that would be individual phone numbers for every plane. Imagine. If that happened, you know a half the planes would fly empty it would be a massive pain and that was actually the state of health care before sock. Is Amazing that that the nothing like this was out there in two thousand seven. I look at I. Think. In many ways you couldn't build it a much earlier. In the early days. When we went out there, we were the ones installing Internet of the doctor's offices. We. They they were a many times just migrating from a paper books to scheduling systems. We were at the cusp of digitisation for healthcare. We were just lucky in our timing to get this right in and start offering the service when that also happened. All right. So you decide to pursue Zach dock and it's the three of you. I'm assuming really just at the beginning and were you working out of out of one of your apartments? Did you guys rent space? No, we worked out of respect for. Many. Times we came to make yet the nicest apartment and and we could bring breakfast Burrito and bake him up and you know the the reality is that we originally had a pretty ambitious launch plan right so we got together around July. We wanted to launch by December of two, thousand seven. Something interesting happened were nick send an email suggesting to look at what was then called techcrunch forty. Take is is now a household name but the draw for us back then was there was a fifty thousand dollar prize now it's called tech crunch disrupt think. So it's a major a startup competition. It's a startup competition and we were the first class of this was much less known be budgeted two hours to fill in the application in really which will send it off. He didn't think about it anymore that there was an early July and early August we've heard that we had been accepted, but there was a complication we'd have to be ready by September eighteenth or. That was three months sooner than we had originally planned to launch. So you'd have a live website by September that is right that is right with doctors with doctors, right So we actually debated for a few hours whether we should even tried to go for that but we ultimately said, yes, we can get the website working and we wanted to have enough doctors just a bars wouldn't look pathetic. Brayden. Coded Night Neither Day and nick really busted his but he did the patient facing side of the website and that was the programs. What was potentially even harder because we're tried to launch a marketplace was to actually get the initial supply on there and remember the website wasn't there yet so. Tires ended up going door to door for doctors offices. Excuse telling them a powerpoint page, and this is really a testament to cyrus sheer willing determination if you think about what it means to really start a company early on, there's nothing to show right you may be a powerpoint but there's no website there's no patience. There's no other doctors no social proof and it has to run on passion and very clear that that is Cyrus superpower. He just went to random doctors offices or he had like a list of doctors offices and he started kind of walking block by block. Well, there's a lot of walking involved a we launched in Manhattan so you can literally go down the street and you see. The signs and you walk in. And he was basically saying look, it's a way to connect you to patients. How was how many by the way? What was your objective? How many doctors do you need to sign up to have this website look okay by September Between six and ten was our goal. Okay. So just doable it is a was extremely hard really. Is telling doctors is one of the hardest things to do why were they saying? Well, first of all, it is baby very hard to even speak to a doctor they are being shielded. Their time is very valuable. Office managers are trained not to let anyone talk to them to protect the doctor from people walking in selling them stuff shirt them. Secondly, they many didn't want to give up control over their calendar which has to write. We ask them to post times that a patient could book into it and it was just a far fetched idea for many of them the patients would actually do this. So he got a lot of knows he got a lot of knows. He'd go there and he just simply not leave until he got a chance to speak to the doctor and a few times. It was even escorted out by security. I really think one in a million could have put this off. I mean was he going to particular kinds of doctors or was he generally focused on an Internet general? Practitioners Ob sobe began with dentists Okay. Because our thinking was that. People go to dentists most often, and we wanted to make sure that we have an offering that is relevant for patients as often as possible. I. Got you so so eventually unassuming, you do get what six to ten or how many did you get by September of two thousand seven Eight. In the meantime, you inequity doing the back end stuff you were doing the coding and building the website does right and as you were building it. How did it look? So. The bit that Nick Build looked awesome for the time I think. It was impressive. We were. Very. Satisfied that we had a scroll bar that we had a map that we had back then already the insurance selector and a lot of feature that. Weren't to be found really anywhere else. All right. So September two, thousand, seven, you are ready to reveal. This service at. Tech. Crunch. And Doth Review present or did did Cyrus kind of wishy the spokesperson? Cyrus. I presented Nick stayed behind in New York to make sure that the less the website was actually up and running This is in San Francisco that you went to the we flew out to San Francisco and So we lost sock talk in front of Eight, nine, hundred people. A lot of them were journalists when the judges opened up with feedback guy covers ocoee who we newnan in valued. As embezzles forever apple he came out to said he he didn't get it. He would never use this in front of everyone right and. His direct load something like honestly Oh, it just never occurred to me to go to any doctor that's really burned in in my brain and what was worse is that he seemed to be right we didn't get a single booking. We were hoping that this PR would get us out of our initial batch of users, right because your other. So many tech journalists there. So you know the publicity may be would would would lead to bookings and that was the hope but. It actually took three days before regard our first legitimate a patient, and and in the entire first month, we only got five bookings. You come back from San Francisco and. You know you had Guy Kawasaki. Say I don't I would never use this service? I'm sure he feels differently today but man maybe then Ezio said that but did did you come back feeling like like dejected like losers or or were you excited like how did you feel coming back? While you know I think we obviously hoping we would eventually get more bookings and In the beginning you probably refreshed. The Bookings Report Hundred Times a day by as we were thinking through what we realized. It was really a typical two sided marketplace challenge It's just a classic chicken and egg problem. You need the supply to get the demand and you need the demand to entice them supply and for dark was even trickier. Right when you think about it, healthcare is hyper local. Very complicated. So you have to match. Supply and demand on a Zip code specialty level, and then we have thousands of insurances take. Until we realized that our odds of actually finding a patient that wanted. An offer there. Quite low, and so the best path forward was to methodically build up supply, and so we just kept going put up a huge map of Manhattan on the wall, and then a sleep put little flags on of where the doctor's brother we're on the website in which insurance is accepted and we just we knew the perseverance. Is the name of the game. Back in just a moment how oliver and Cyrus Begin to drum up interest in stock and how they even start to raise some money at figure out how to dress differently, stay with us guy rows and you're listening to how I built this from NPR.

Last, please go to Guira DOT COM or how I built this dot. com. Hey welcome back to how I built this from NPR Cairo's. So it's two, thousand, seven and Oliver. Cyrus. Nick are basically powering through with Zach dock going door to door trying to convince doctors. It's a valuable service and the thing about doctors even though they're really smart and capable and we depend on them. A lot of their offices especially back in two, thousand, seven or sort of technologically in the Stone Age. There was incredibly complicated to sink the doctors calendars with ours. Because none of the software was actually made to sink. Were even in the places where we had syncs up and running, we would frequently get. Feedback while the punishment didn't happen because the doctor wasn't available and we really couldn't figure out why this was the case because when we did screen chairs with the office to their calendar and and our calendar, it was identical right and couldn't figure out why that's happening. So I decided to sit next to the office manager I went there and got to know him and his family photos of his dog. I fixed the printer taught a better strategies to play minesweeper still couldn't figure it out. Until one day, the doctor would come out and she'd say, Hey David I'm out next Friday. And then what does David do does he go into the calendar and block out next Friday or does he take a post? It note On a doctor out next Friday and sticks this too is monitor. In the real world. These post it notes, of course happen and but once you know that Matthew Friend, you can start filtering this out and that's one example they were literally a thousand point, one percent solutions that we had to figure out to make this work. Wow. That sounds I'm getting exhausted. Just hearing about that because this is like even like Google calendars, right? Yeah. Yeah. That was that was early days and what we were extremely focused around were making show the experience was fantastic. If something went wrong, we fix it. Right. So I was our customer service I personally would call the doctor and and confirmed the appointment was all said if it wasn't I, personally contact the patient to let them know and then I would offer them. Amazon Gift Card alongside with an apology those actually one case where it didn't catch a patient in time. and. The were in the subway to the doctor, and so I raised them to the doctor's office and picked up a bouquet of flowers on the way there and met them in person to apologize. And that was really a turning point burs. The service has to work and we need to be have this patients I attitude in in terms of how it works completely ingrained in the company. All right. So you clearly need to kind of grow this Were you offering this service doctors for free at the time? Initially. We for free by we eventually started charging fifty dollars per month. But Sam doctor you come into my office and you say, Hey, if you pay me I can bring you more customers. I would be skeptical I would've said to you you who whose, who even knows about you. You'RE GONNA you're asking me to pay you money for Phantom bookings for maybe no customers I mean did some of the doctors say Many. The US summarize our sales challenge. Right? It was very hard because even if you wanted to, we couldn't easily share how many patients their competitors are down the road God like that was something that was confidential. All right. So you are you got this chicken and egg problem. Not, enough people signing up and he gets skeptical doctors but you know that the service could really benefit the doctors, but you also need them to pay for because otherwise you know but business. Meantime at a certain point I'm assuming you guys start to think we'd better go out and look for money if we're going to really make this thing work. Yeah. Yeah. That that happened in the spring of two, thousand, eight we decided we raise series. And we we make the rounds we get in front of a number of the big name, BC New York the also go to Sandhill road in impel. Toho Santo Road we leads and road initially were very successful at all we got Polite knows. and. Ray No feedback control someone took us as I told us you know what the idea seems. Good. But you're consultants I'd and the perspective of its consultants can't get anything done and what realized is that even though we had both founded companies before our Mackenzie Pedigree in our keys and button down shirts, they were really hurting us, and so we wait rank Khakis and button down shirts. It sounds crazy. Were they pleaded pants or were they at least nine pleaded please. Yeah Yeah. Yeah we after hearing that feedback We very quickly just went to the next gap and bought jeans and t-shirts and from that on the combos with VC's when but a lot better. So you went from McKinsey consultant look to this are the tech casual uniform of jeans and t-shirts that that's exactly right and we introduced ourselves not as NBA's and McKinsey Consultants but we introduce ourselves previous entrepreneurs that are starting their next company. was was anyone biting? Were there people who were like? Yeah there's a great idea I'm in. So interesting enough we had raised some money from. Friends and colleagues, and many of those they invested in US business plan unseen just based on the fact that we. Were giving up our careers at McKinsey to pursue talks. So that felt really a great. and. As we started changing how we appeared in how we introduced ourselves to venture capitalists L., we started to get offers and so in August of two thousand eight, we ended up raising five million from KHOSLA ventures expeditions mark. Wow Mark Banya Jeff bezos, and Venus is. All their. Funds are in which sounds like a lot before you WanNa do it's actually. Kinda limited because you still it seems to me in two thousand eight even though you have five million dollars a lot of money you still have this problem which is you've gotta get. Customers, and then to get customers, you need lots of doctors had lots of options but to get doctors, you need lots of customers booking through the site to you do that precisely D- These five million dollars per lily earmarked for making New, York, work, right, Miguel, I market work but. immediately after raising the money the financial crisis hit. And You may remember there was rest in peace a memo that went around about startups, right? Yes. About start ups, never being able to raise money arrested in peace good times. So we got this job is to make the money stretch in. We probably learn not during this time This was really our first go round making hard choices and what I want to be frugal and not to do things we can't afford and We learned to not let money replace critical, thinking and creativity. But now we continued to grind away at New York and at some point felt while if you want to get. To the next level we have to prove. Dr Isn't just a New York City phenomenon. Right? We had to prove that it would work in a second city But at that point, we didn't have the money to do this anymore, and by the way you're still your approach was still the same. It was door to door. That's right door to door and how how you building awareness about the about the fact Zach existed with customers with potential customers. So we it was day very difficult to get someone. To the website. Yeah but when they did. They loved it because it was such a step change from how healthcare used to work for him. Right they used to have to pick up the phone and wait on hold and then plays scheduling. tetris. With the office manager, can you do Wednesday morning about Thursday noon? Friday afternoon, and now they could do the same thing in a minute and have complete overview about the ability patients loved it and they told their friends. So we we started to get word of mouth. Going, and so we saw New York really taking up and we felt like, okay, this does this go into work in New York. At a minimum rate, but we also realized that it took us a fair bit of time. And money to get it going. In New, York and do we couldn't with the money we had left from the five million easily expanded into a new city at the same time. Raising money was going to be difficult because the next generation of investors wanted to see that it works and other cities as Walter. So we were a little bit in this catch twenty, two we ended up. Applying to. Force boost Your Business Competition Four. Forbes has his competition as sell to where they give away money right to they were promising a hundred thousand dollar prize. And at this time. We won. And Yeah what did is they gave us one of these large publishers. Clearinghouse is sex and very useful actually used to cover a hole in one in our only conference room. There was a hole in the wall and we covered it with that. At, this point you are, you are working out of an office, not not an apartment at this point we were working out of A. Shared Office space we work. Yeah. So they had given us publisher clearing house is is check but they fail to give us the small check for three months and we were getting really nervous, but it would still get it but. But ultimately, we got that one hundred thousand dollars and that's what we used to launch and our second market in DC in Washington DC and would did it require you guys to move down there or were you did you hire because I'm assuming you had to? A lot of your early capital was going into sales. Business Development hiring sales reps, is that right? Right, we had a couple of sales reps at the time. A. Very first employee ever was a sales rep is still with the company today and He was great. He figured out how to. Really charm his way. To the doctor. So there were no more security guards escorting anyone out. When did you? I'm assuming that even in two, thousand, nine, two, thousand, ten, and beyond we're not yet profitable. Far From It? Yeah. Far from it right because it's a capital intensive business. Yes. We obviously invested heavily in customer service wanted patients to have a great experience. And we had a quite sizable engineering team because that was actually a major engineering effort. So what started to happen when did you start to kind of see? A real turning point. Yeah. So we we we had launched New, York successfully with. Years. Of hardwork, we've gotten it off the ground is transported that to DC at work well, in DC, and now he said, well, why are we not in more cities and so we actually we raised serious be with fouled respond and We used to expand off the East Coast Francisco then Chicago and we just got better better at it. So we then ended up raising serious and two thousand eleven from Goldman NTSC, and we primarily use this to grow our sales team and sign up more more doctors in from two thousand eleven till two thousand, thirteen, we launched roughly thirty new cities I read that by by two thousand, fourteen would covered. Like forty percent of markets in the US, which is huge I mean that's right I mean that's a huge number of cities. And in that year evaluation. Of tzakda. Past Billion Dollars I mean that's That's pretty remarkable i. mean you were kind of on this like really rapid trajectory and you a pretty straightforward model right and you were charging doctors a flat fee every year and then. They could take all the bookings they wanted and I think that by that point like by two thousand, fourteen knew it was not cheap. It was expensive viewed really raised the price it was like three thousand dollars a year, right? Something like that. Yes recharged Dr Three thousand dollars a year and and there was a flat fee. No matter. How many bookings Actually facilitated for them and and the reality was for some doctors that got a lot of bookings that was a great deal. Yeah. But but there were also doctors that God a lot fewer bookings and for them that fixed cost was actually too expensive and some of them were starting to leave the service, and so we got into a situation that required us to invest a lot to stay where we are and then invest even more to continually grow our overall provider base, which means we had to build out a massive sales team to always sign up more doctors right and. Some point during this time L. Nick actually ran an analysis showed that it would take several years if ever fries to make our money back on on many of the doctors we signed up because you would have to sign up. X number of hundreds of thousands of doctors paying that amount every year. To make your money back to to make sort of our the cost of the sales team back. Wow and L. it. This was pure that would make us dependent on external capital for our very long time, and now it's a clearly there are many companies that have taken. Grow fast at all costs approach. And They Held onto this forty extended period of time by L., it clearly puts talking to a dependency to. Investors in their mind says, yeah. So. Meantime. You know I I from what I understand. There's disagreements I mean there there are you know the leadership team including Cyrus he he's I. Think he's he's sort of his position as the flat fee model is actually the best way to go is that a fair assessment of of his position? Yeah. I think that's right. I. Mean there were two fundamentally divergent ways held the business could go forward right. One way was to continue to work on optimizing the unit economics of our subscription model and the other way was to think about how to make it more transformative leap and then find a new more profitable. And more sustainable model and. Their. Look I can certainly understand The reluctance and taking this leap if companies rechange their underlying business model once they have a certain scale and then live to tell about it, right. We know the names of the companies that have done this net flicks, but from DVD's to streaming adobe. From box software to the cloud, but there's not a lot of companies that do that. and. Needed to make a choice which which direction I wanted to go. And and I should say over that. Became intensely personal for you because hugh and Cyrus really disagreed on on on the direction of the company should take. Steps down he he left the company and you moved into the role of CEO. Those right and what ask you about this neo. Beauty's in the flies of this show is its simplicity and we talked to one person or sometimes too. It's a single narrative, and so we don't have cyrus with us to tell us what happened but I wanna ask you about this time because. This was your co founder. This was your partner This is your friend and he was leaving the company. How did you feel at that time? I all I can say was a very hard and very emotional period for everyone involved and It was certainly a departure But how was through that given these two divergent choices you you couldn't. note, both of us could be useful to talk and. I have to imagine that for for period. China. was sort of the friendship. Look been we were very close we. Were not only friends we had worked for eight years believe together fourteen hours a day, and we probably talked more to each other than to anyone else in our lives but you know. Still touch from time to time and. I think he's joining us on from sideline. He still at prison million owner of the company Yeah, he's still. Here's the thing I mean we've we've told stories about breakups we've had we've had episodes were there were married couples who split divorced but continued the business e O products. Susan Griffin Black and an her husband Brad They continued the business stacy's pita chips continue the business after the divorce sold it for a quarter billion dollars. You guys were worth value to one point eight billion dollars at this point. was was ever party that just thought you know, God look at what we're doing on the core we're going and. I mean did you in service it down and say you know this thing is just growing and? Let's just figure this out. I think the challenge is that it's not as if there was an article way to decide what the right path forward is. As long as investors wanted to give us money growing all costs was yeah. Fine Strategy. The question was just how dependent you wanted to be on the continued goodwill of investors. It sounds like you were tired of going out raising money. You didn't want to do that anymore. Oh, not at all but I think you want to raise money from a position where you know what your turn to is and and. It wasn't clear that the business model would work in in a way that that we could just flip a switch and be profitable. Yeah. So. That was a tough year for you. Two, thousand fifteen. There was an article in business I think business insider, and it was about the sales team. It's October that year and it was. It was some allegations that you know Pete member sales team using adderall even cocaine they were under immense pressure. They were working all the time when you saw that article. And I'm not saying you even aware of any of this. You may not even aware of it but I. have to think that that article really alarmed you and and maybe even embarrassed you. Look A. There were a number of articles in two thousand fourteen fifteen. Didn't absolutely get everything, right but Budweiser I can say is that At. The time doctor had their sales team and we're. Getting very quickly and Your maybe maybe. Too focused on. L. Hitting targets and. Not. Focus enough on creating a strong culture the I hear these stories from six years ago from from time to time and from from now from candidates and and really every time. This happens like a Gut Punch. Because, this we know we're completely different company now. On on so many levels, but clearly, you saw that in new that you had to change something. While yes, I look I l there's a there's a couple of things about this. Right? We are a technology company, but we had said ourselves up too much about. Instead of writing wins and really too little about being adaptable and darning and and building the trust required to try things that now pet the risk of failure. and. So one of the first things I did is to change core values. You know to emphasize those behaviors each one of our values adaptable, not comfortable and other one is progress before perfection learners before masters right and. We only kept really one DIA CONSTANT DEL patients I. Personally that. That was more of the culture that I thought was right for Doc to succeed on many dimensions. So, you take over the company it's got high valuation, but you're still not making money and you know that you've gotta change the underlying business model you're never gonNA make money. And from what I understand this is the beginning of what you have internally described as the second founding of the company. That is right. That is right and that basically happens in in two thousand, eighteen you you launch this new business model where instead of the the dollar membership fee. Basically, you would charge doctors a lot less like two hundred or three hundred bucks, but then every booking you, you would take a cut from that booking. So like a travel agency. A little bit charge for new patient booking. So the existing patients to practice we made free but yes, there was the fundamental idea and. It sounds like such an obvious thing to do but but here's the problem with it and why why are we thought it was incredibly risky to try this. Our best customers that had been on for a long time. They got lots of pockets right and if we start charging them per bookings, their prices go up very significantly in some cases ten times more and that seemed. Competing, insane to us. In. Particular because when we talked to other companies that were at gone through similar changes and even pricing experts, they're number one advisor was make sure whatever you do never charged your best customers more and frost would be precisely. The opposite. In the thing that was counter-balancing this in our mind was well, maybe we'd be able to bring on a lot more doctors because the barrier to entry is now much lower that was there was the back and forth in the team to figure out whether that's the path we want to want to go. So, this is still a risky strategy because you're depending really on new bookings because the two hundred dollar annual fees dramatically lower and I have to imagine in year one, you actually saw drop in your revenue in the year one of of this curve. Second founding. Right. Well, it's from a risk profile worth at that. Right the warriors that you lose all your best customers in with it, all the bookings day used to be getting. and. So we needed to be ready for a very significant drop in bookings and revenue and the second Challenge was here that. The beauty of this approach modest and we got all this money upfront right and Sharon. Now to bond, we're getting paid after the booking with with a thirty day payment periods, we had a huge working capital requirement to make that happen. So did you see a drop and revenue in two thousand eighteen when you rolled this out? No we didn't because we actually didn't see the doctors leave the way that we hit on -ticipant did in fact, you know while we had very much worried that they would be upset and some of them certainly were upset. We were providing so much value to them that. You know what? What took you. So long I knew as getting a great deal all along. So that worked really well, and we had piloted in Georgia initially in April. Two thousand eighteen and then that had worked. So we we then all allowed in Colorado a few weeks later that work to, and from there we went to Washington state and again, very positive results and after these three days. Okay Great. We know this works does it out in our largest most important market? Let's go to New York and that and terribly horribly wrong. They the doctors in New York. Not only were so pissed off they actually I read. mounted a change dot org. Petition I. Don't know what to to to end this practice or something. They were really mad. They were really really mad and I guess you guys responded you said, are we won't we won't roll this out in New York for a while. Yeah look in New York. We. Facilitate Roughly, one in five new patient doctor relationship in the entire city on dock and so. The economic impact for the providers in. was much greater than for the providers in Georgia Colorado Washington. So yes, to give you one example, there's a dermatologist and so and he paid under the ultimate model ten doctor say paid thirty thousand dollars and under the new pricing model, his cost was going to go up from thirty thousand dollars to roughly three hundred, forty, thousand dollars. Wow. So what was your response to that? I? Mean it seems like a pretty reasonable. Concern. Yeah. So look after the conversation with the Dermatologists I. Actually. Put down the phone and I thought you know what? He's right. And so I pause and we regrouped and. We did a couple. Of things during this time, like the first one is we just went on a listening tour. You know we talked to provide their feedback and we just adjusted our this plan to give providers a much longer grace period to decide whether the wants to addition to the new model or not, and then. So then we read on New York six months later and and when dramatically better. So the strategy works and you see results from the strategy pretty quickly like within a year. Within a year, we had we finally at some incredible momentum was really going better than we had expected in our wildest dreams. Our existing client went down to essentially zero. I mean people still retire and and move jobs by no one really left the service and we were adding more and more providers because the barrier to entry was low and So in two thousand, nineteen we began growing profitably. It sounds like two thousand and nineteen was really the banner year. Two thousand nine hundred was a was a fantastic year and honestly we had so much momentum coming into twenty twenty and feel like, Hey, we worked really hard for three years and profitable and now the sky was the limit until. Tells Sam until March of two thousand twenty. Two Marjo twenty twenty and that's. That's really maybe the third founding DOC right? Well, I want to ask you about March twenty twenty because. Your Business is based on people booking with doctors and going to the doctor I have to imagine your revenues must have plummeted like every other industry like I mean doctors offices are still in most of the country. Slow or are trickle of patients coming in. With the lockdown started happening we saw impersonal bookings declining anywhere between fifty to ninety percent by the end of March I'm not surprised and lot of that buys I was getting was to. Lay off people and make sure that we hunker down to weather the storm but I saw an opportunity to build windmills, right so I thought well, we need to be there for our patients. We should be expanding into telehealth and I need every team member to help me do that and so we. Really went all important and supporting video visits and I'll probably June eighteen began redesigning the tire marketplace support virtual care, and so we actually released. Doctor Video Service and we made this available to. Any. Physician whether they are on soccer. for free. And by the way head, you plan to do this. How long would would I mean I'm imagining if you said in in February district I really want to focus on telehealth Would you have expected that by May would have been ready to go. Absolutely. Not I think what has been really fantastic to see is how? We really finished two years of roadmap in two months. Wow, and it's great because it's just gives us a window on what the next phase of doctor will be and really looking forward to that in my mind were the point were Amazon started from going. Books to also adding CDs. We have just gone from doing only in person to also A. Doing telehealth and I can't wait to see how this unfolds. It sounds like you. Might be reading between the lines but. You. Really, admire and respect your co-founders particularly. Cyrus and the work that he did to to build this company but I wonder if do you think that you will a I dunno, rekindle your friendship i. Is it something that is in the cards because a break is? Is Emotionally, it's hard Mesa really hard. Yeah, look I Do I think we'll work fourteen hours together again maybe not but you know I I've gotten through tougher breakups and reconciled in my past, and so I think we are we're in good shape and honestly know we are meeting were talking from time to time Yeah. We both have things to do and places to be so we're. Not, hanging out all the time. But it's now also five years ago So We are we're merch focused on making our join the baby successful. When you think about your journey and All Its happen to you how much do you think this has to do with? with luck and how much do you think it has to do with with the hard work you put in your your skills. Well I'm going look I I believe that there's really three ingredients to success. In order importance there are lock the talent, then hard work and. The only one. That's comedian. You control his how hard you work right and Now working hard to gives you more shots on goal It helps his day on the top of what you your talent allows and absolutely restarted at the right time the right place. So What what I'm proud of an all that journey has only that yet when we were wrong and when be had to revise and. When we needed the grit to actually make it work. I L we lived up to that and and that's really The all that anyone can ask themselves to.

It's always fun to look at the total ice time for some individual players, Victor Hedman, talking about that lower body injury, 57 minutes and 38 seconds. He played on the back and had nine shots. On gold when you take a look at the forward position. For the Lightning. Brayden point played 47 minutes course. The two goals I said he had nine shots on goal. How Valiani gored and Mitchell Stevens both had six shots apiece. Stevens actually had some really good scoring opportunities in the skin. The fourth line.

We're GonNa talk about seven specific ways that your sleep quality is impact in your life that you're probably not aware of and I know that some of these things are absolutely going to blow your mind now for many of us big reason why our sleep patterns or a little bit often routines the fact that we're not getting out and doing the things that we normally do our normal routines like getting up and going to work putting on clubs just a big shot to you if you put on anything other than leggings Jag. Ings and sweatpants in the past few weeks to a couple of months are just a big shot out not that we have to but sometimes you just WanNa Kinda get dressed up some other stuff on and you know what's so interesting about humans is that we actually have special close that we put on in order to go to bed right these closer we call this under this category. We WE CALL PAJAMAS IN PAJAMAS. The word itself just makes you feel good. I dare you to say pajamas. And not like some warm fuzzies. Come over you. You can say with me now pajamas. Now for many of us are pajamas. Are something that we put on again. It's a it's tied to a neurosurgeon for relaxation. For SETTLING DOWN AND FOR GETTING SLEEP. It's all connected and our brains association. Our brain is always looking for patterns. It's always looking for associations and a longer we do a behavior the more ingrained or the more mylan gets laid down making that habit or their behavior more permanent in our minds so now all of a sudden if we're just living in our pajamas we're just my son. Brayden was just walking around his pajamas. My wife to she went outside. She got like the Wednesay Pajama. She went outside but just like walking around. You know so.

This is largely done in our unconscious. Subconscious mind now. The researchers took a photograph of test subjects after normal sleep and another photographed after limiting their sleep for two nights in a row and now they had. Raiders look at a rate of randomized photographs. Summer including when people are sleep deprived and when they're well rested and consistently the raiders rated photos of people who are sleep deprived as less attractive less healthy and they were less inclined to want to socialize with them just based off of whether or not somebody was sleep deprived their appearance based on that and another study found that sleeping less than six hours a night for five nights in a row caused fine lines and wrinkles to increase by forty five percent also blemishes went up by fifteen percent and redness increased by nearly ten

The remains of the day as good as it gets captain Phillips sense and sensibility. The nineteen ninety five Erzen awakenings Jerry Maguire and the age of innocence. Any of those movies, you think need four K? No, not at not at all of those movies were good movies in their day, but not movies. I'd be. Clamoring to go see again a league of their own member. A really enjoy, actually, I really enjoyed a lot of the movies on the list. But Jerry Maguire I did captain Phillips was good. They were all very good. But they aren't movies that you're like, oh, man, I gotta go watch that again. I go see it. And I gotta see it in four. K K, Mark. With those was captain Phillips. The one where that the pyro to go. Hitters. I look at me look at me. I'm the captain now. Yeah. Because the guy was Irish or something. Yeah. So I don't think you need more than HD on these movies. I don't see four k is gonna get you anything. You take these movies in HD with the televisions that we have available today with up conversion. They're gonna look fantastic. There's nothing that requires HD is far as audio goes, they probably don't even need a beyond Dobie digital. But then they have a second question is a separate from the above set. We want to know which of these it, you like to see four k ultra HD select up to three titles from below that you that you would buy on for K U HD disk, if it were to become available, and I'm not gonna read this list because it's a very big list. All those movies are on there. But some of the movies are like cloudy with a chance of meatballs Mathilde Rudy a definitely Rudy. No, I loved Rudy. I watch it over and over and I had just the DVD version. And on my four K TV. It's still looks good up converted. There's no reason for Rudy to be in for KHD none. So do I see these? Studios trying to milk every last penny out of us. And I don't think it's it's necessary. Even there's a lot of new movies that come out that come out for K but they don't need to be in four K. I think we're in a world where we need more ks. You know eight ks. The next is I just don't see the need for it. But if you're listening to the show, tell us where we're wrong on this or if you agree with us. Let us know as well. We're gonna need another K. So I pulled up the list while you were talking. And there's a couple movies on this list, that I think would be very, very fun to watch in four k with an atmos- soundtrack and experienced the movie that way, I wouldn't person got him by it. But if I could stream it like that I would watch it and enjoy it like the Thoraya, I think would be really, really fun to watch that way, the last action hero. That was the Schwarzenegger one, right? Yes, I believe it. We're. Packed in like pretended to be a spy, Jamie Lee. Curtis was his wife, it a bunch of crazy stunts with airplanes and stuff, right? There was explosions everywhere. I think that one would be super fun to watch in four k with an atmosphere track. I wouldn't pay for it. I wouldn't go out and spend thirty bucks for the disk, but I would watch it in four k so I, I think there's a little bit of like. Yeah, it would be cool. But how much does it worked to mates were streaming it. It's not worth buying it. All right. And so last thing we want to talk about today.

MLB Draft 2019: Best Baseball Prospects Available After Day 2 Results

"And the giants were doing two things today. In addition to playing a baseball game, it was also day two of the draft. But I, I don't want to move on from day one, yet with our next guest, Keith law. ESPN baseball man. He's been all over the draft. He I'm looking at your Twitter feed in your story from yesterday. What you did like what you did not like from day, one of the draft for those of us who do not have ESPN. Plus, what does it say in there? Three thousand words in narrative. Okay. We could just why don't we just talk a little giant. Yeah. Okay. That's fine. Actually, I liked what they did. I did. Well, I mean, we'll start with day one where they to college position players. Very different guys. They should a big power bat in hundred Bishop, Maradona state, brother, Brayden bishops been up and down with the Mariners hunters corner outfielder huge power of any of the hardest hit ball. I personally saw spring scouting players came off with fish. It's fat in a game at Arizona state. He is going to play center now. There's swing invest. That's the big concern really didn't perform his first two years had a breakout season this year, wasn't quite as good in the Pac twelve but it's an upside play. I mean, you want to get a guy who's got that hunting power is gonna come probably with some red flags or question marks and pick Kent. You're going to get a guy like that, if hundred Bishop had no red flag he would have gone first or second. So I think at the ten spot it was a really solid pick. And they came. Back with Logan. Wyatt per station from Louisville saw this spring who can really hit. They can just see him. He looks like he's going to hit for power swings kind of flat. We hear a lot about launch angle. Now he doesn't really have it. And my suspicion is that the giants took him thinking he can hit. It's got a good idea to strike zone. He's find it first base, let's get them into our system. It's you can work with this wing to try to get a little more lost in its finish to his sheer size can result in more actual game power if that happens, you have first round value with your second round pick. No, it's amazing about Logan Wyatt. The way people are describing him. You know who he sounds like you sounds exactly like Brandon bell? Exact same guy. Yup. I think Brandon's bit better athlete overall. But otherwise, there's a lot of similarities and Brandon needed Swain, help twin hope you really need it stamps help too. But I remember talking to gut match news. Giants cross decker for many, many years. He's retired now after they took out and then he went had that big breakout year. A lot of it was just he hadn't had quality coaching, but they saw what they could do with him. Right. Which that's the similarity. This is my guest here. Why is that? They look at him and said we can make him better. That's a big part of and a lot of some teams don't wanna do that. They want the player he is what he is. And we don't want to have to do a lot of look somewhere going to embrace that say we star player don't in the process. We'll get a guy like a Logan, white into the system and they can changes and I particularly think that Kasparov on Sadie king from the dodgers where they kept doing this with players, they turn Muncie into a big leaguer. They turned Chris Taylor into good. Big leaguer. They Will Smith a catcher just got called up last week. Get no power in college. Last year, he had something like twenty three home runs in double A, because they changed his swing. And I have a feeling I just having scouted. Wyatt. I feel like that's where this is going. You know what kind of investment in your opinion are these teams making in their early picks and beyond the obvious? What I mean by that is, you know, to what level are they hanging the future of the organization on these guys. I think when a lot of fans see that early on the giants took a bunch of left handed power there immediately, and I'm by the way, I'm one of these people that says, okay, then that tips you off that they're moving those fences in because they're not going to take these guys, and then make him look at a four hundred twenty foot power alley in a couple of years. I wouldn't draw that conclusion here and certainly I wouldn't draft. I've never liked the idea teams this isn't specific to giants at all, but the team saying, well we're going to draft ballpark. We're gonna draft. It's kinda like drafting for right? Just they'll get the best. Player. Take the best players available hundred Bishop was probably the best player available at their pick. By the way, if he hits to get enough to get his power defenses could be four hundred fifty feet away, and it's still not gonna hold it. Okay. He flies with us day two of the draft working throughout the day. The other thing that I think, has has been noticeable from the giant standpoint is that through the first ten rounds only one pitcher and I know that it's not considered a pitcher heavy draft. But I is that just a reflection of that or the giants shifting the philosophy of it? Well, it was a bad pitching draft rights addressed that sort of at the general level. I assume listeners are split following the draft rapidly. Like I am was this is my eighteenth draft between my time with the Blue Jays. My time at ESPN keeps the worst college pitching draft I've ever seen, and I am actually having a heart. Somebody asked me, well what was the worst pitching draft before this? I said, I don't actually know this one so much worse. It's just a waste all the others from my memory. It was just an baseball, America's gay a Cooper, had a great piece that showed historically, when it's a fad pitching drafts chasing pitching is just a fad strategy. So I look at the giants, they will maybe they believe that maybe they just took what we're not gonna make you don't force it. Right. It's the draft isn't giving you pitchers. Take the position player. Like again, I think they did pretty well in that regard. But I also wonder if there was any philosophy here, just a question you would ask four hundred other folks in front office was this also the belief that their safety and position players? Right. Giants farm system is down. It's just week after years of high up little draft picks and contending trading. So was this just, hey, let's restock the system and try to get some certainty, which do get with position players. You tend not to get with pitchers just pitchers. Get her. When you look at, you know, the system as a whole and, and, you know, it all starts take shape with the names that they added to it over the last couple of days. But I think a lot of giants fans are starting to come to grips with what you're describing in the fact that this is it needs to be reworked, and it's going to take some time in, in your estimate. How long of a project is far Hans ID looking at. It depends a little bit. Like the way it is right now, this is just a draft and build situation, you're probably still four years away, counting this year from turning this into a contending situation, or at least we'll take competitive situation. The one thing is they still have some major league assets that have trade if they can take medicine Bumgarner and trade him convinced to accept the trade and trade him for packages indecent prospects that can always accelerate things because then in any trade, you're typically getting at least one prospect who's kind of close to the big leagues closer to the big leagues. Then the players you just rafted this week. So that's the one variable, maybe this is more on that three year range than the fortify year range, because they can convert some on the major league roster into more prospect, healthy if they're just trying to do this through the draft at your international science, which they spent a lot of money last year seem to add a lot of talent at they're just doing student drafted. It's gonna take you more four years or, or even. Beyond because that's how long it takes noth- nothing against the giants. It's just a long process to take so long specially high school talent to get to the big links and they can

I'm writing radio Kobe seems like every time the Lanier seeing team we're hearing from the other side. Well, it's going to be a measuring stick game. And we're going to see where we're at and to that end. You're seeing really honest efforts. From the other side. Other words, you're getting a minus. Maybe a worse be plus performances from the other team, which can be tough over the course of a long season. It's beneficial that that you're not really seeing any duds from the other side to keep you guys. I think that's a great thing for hockey clubs, especially with the position wherein. You wanna have you want to have the best challenge? You can't every night. And I think that's one of the ways enables the team to really grow especially over. The course eighty two games as you just continually grow as hockey club and get better. So one come around. Do your game is your games on point. Now having said that you guys are seeing a team that's been rolling the sharks. And they were the team that ended your long point streak back in San Jose earlier in the month. What challenges did they bring specifically as a team from your position on defense? Well, I think they can match our depth very deep team. Their offensive talent is when you watch them play you can tell they have great chemistry together. And you know, sometimes that's that's tough. You can put good players on the line together. Not I was gonna have great chemistry, and for whatever reason, I think it's probably a testament to some of their leaders over there. And then the town of accumulated, and obviously they are great coaching. But you have to be on your toes because you know, the biggest fast thing out there's the puck. And when you move the puck fast. It's it's hard to defend the lighting or a team that will activate their defensemen. When you have possession in the offense on not only off the Russian that can create problems for the defending team, the sharks due to burns is often behind.

It's over you need to have these ref step up and do a good job. And I know they're trying they can't catch everything all the time, and we can nitpick here. But the refs ultimately the ones that have to police this. Okay. So the athletic has a trade board. Big trade war who who from the athletics. NHL trade big board should the sabers trade for and I don't know if you guys have seen the list at all. Yes. But there are some big big name players on their you have our Tammy pans number one, Matt Duchenne, Mark stone. Kevin Hayes Dougie Hamilton. There are some big players Wayne Simmons is a guy I would love to see the sabers land. This isn't this isn't up to me. This is about you guys. And it's to the point presented by Jim stakeout. So just giving you an idea of who's out there who from the athletics NHL trade big board should the sabers trade for. I don't know why we would Wayne Simmons is a slower winger that likes to stand in front of the net. We have a lot of them already for me. It'd be Brayden Schenn. I would wanna get a guy to complete a middle of the ice dad as one year laughing this contract at five million. So if it works out, great, maybe we looked to extend and if not you have a clean break and fix maybe the middle of the ice for the next season and a half the Saint Louis blues are not going anywhere. The blues have already been a good partner with the sabres trade. So you know, that there is a ease of conversation right there. So I would I would look for Brayden Schenn. Okay. I liked that call. I think you probably still rivers thunder a little bit. But why don't you? Go ahead river. Yeah. I have the same thing. Obviously wishful thinking with picking up Matt Shane. He's gonna cost too much for this hockey team. I have talked about Brayden Schenn for for a long time. I think he's absolutely exactly what this team needs. He's at the right age..

"So a listener named Morgan. He hit me up about a topic that his wife. Brayden and him apparently got into at least one of them had to be stoned believe it was Morgan and I'm not providing last name here. So nobody can do anything about it. Feels good doesn't it Morgan anyway conversation? These two had revolved around whether or not dogs have the ability to find something. Funny, comical, humorous personally. I'm of the firm belief that dogs have a sense of humor. And I know this because the two dogs that I have now I don't think all dogs necessarily have a sense of humor. I don't think all dogs in all breeds necessarily have the ability to express whether or not they have since humor. But some dogs in particular, you can fucking tell. I mean, they'll smile and laugh at you my to do it constantly you spent thirty minutes with my dog. And I mean, it would have to be, you know, thirty minutes after they've spent two and a half hours calming down getting used to your presence and stopping barking at you because stranger danger. I have a hard time you believing you could walk away from my two dogs and not think they have a sense of humor that they have the ability to find something funny because these fuckers laugh at me on a regular basis, mostly when they're misbehaving doing something they know to be wrong or mischievous like just on occasion, Bella would soil a rug that we used to own in my home. She had one accident on it. And then you know, how it goes once they've got the smell on the rug..

A little more fired up than the players on the ice on miss something. He put the stick right in the number of Brayden Schenn, and Shan turns and goes shoulder first into the boards. Wes McCauley was the guy who did not call last year the goalie interference call and again in Boston because he didn't think Jake was going to be able to get back and play it. That's right. So maybe he thought well, I mean, I don't know what the hell he was thinking Craig brutal Craig Gruber was yelling. But west MacAulay on the other side of the is is a good move there. You're lucky. Brayden Schenn didn't get hurt thirteen twenty nine to go. Blue stay on the power play two. Oh, five to go to major fabric turns it over. Hey this avalanche. Team is good on the penalty. Kill.

"At the end of two Filip Forsberg and Ryan Hansen getting goals for the press in that second period for his birth is thirteenth year at six forty three. Joe hansen. Ten sixteen to make it three one. That was his fourth of the year. And so far. Tampa Bay being badly outshot, although you could see a better push for Tampa Bay in that second period, Alex corn. We thought had a goal at a minute fifty seven remaining in the second period, but he was actually called for penalty. Tripped Ryan Ellis as a result the press on the power play because Colin went to the penalty box for that shipping. Minor and Tampa Bay looks like they're gonna kill that off three seconds remaining in the power play to start the third period for the press. And let's see if Tampa Bay can gain some momentum from that kill because they look pretty good doing it. Now, they just have to start generating a little bit more offense as we said before in the first intermission report. Tampa Bay in terms of shot attempts badly outshot in that category. Twenty eight to ten and they were outshot sixteen eight in the first in the second it has been thirteen to nine. So Brayden point ironically, the first two shifts of east each period in the first period, the first shift. Brayden points line is out there again. The ryen Joe Hansen line. And they drew a penalty in the very first shift of the second period. Thirty seconds in. Brayden points gets a breakway knots. A little bit different with road games because John Cooper can't match lines. But to start a period, you pretty much can throughout whoever you want. And it's just it's interesting to really good opportunities to start each period. And we'll see what happens to start the third but Tampa Bay definitely needs to generate a little bit more offense. And we'll see if they can do that in third period. Are intermission report.
