Make sure those extra miles don't get the best of your engine use pennzoil synthetic motor oil the first motor oil made from natural gas instead of crude oil the proof. You've is in the pennzoil. Be Dan Guitar. Joe podcast is presented by the capital venture car when you are an unlimited double miles on every purchase your next trip is closer than you think capital one there we start however. I've been told that we have sound of Yankees General Manager. Brian cashman sounding like someone talking into a desk aww how to speak these were. He sounds like he's in witness protection. These were all right so which is it we have to decide here which et me and so. Brian CASHMAN has to go face the media having done nothing as they're putting up tabloid photos of him as Zombie dead the walking trade deadline burned arrogance and they expect in Steinbrenner to just get whatever they want when they want matter who needs to be traded and soul eh morning sports show reacting to news of the day might start off as football begins in earnest today <hes> wondering hearing about what The Washington football team is going to do about the mutiny it appears to have on its hands with non-football employees. You would think that's where fan before we get to that. Okay just know that this is the situation. Cashman is then the Yankees are privileged entitled the Yankee Fan Base. <hes> has a lot <music> out there and face the media with a bunch of gibberish because we've developed a voice for a robot. These were EH jarring man. I gotTa say I disagree with you guys. I think it sounds more like a very poor evolution of a robot. We've talked. We've taught headline and here he is the guy who runs the Yankees and his run them for a long time here. He is explaining as the noise gets very loud around him. Get to cashman sounding like he's talking into a fan. We've all done it. Put It on the poll Lebatardshow Fan. Have you put your tongue on a fan. which is the more? Oh cashman <hes>. The most appropriately named general manager in the history of sports is in the middle of had that job for a long time the jobs with the Yankees. Does it sound most like because I'm voting. I think it does sound like he's talking into a fan but you're off that you feel like there's a better when they're I just think he sounds like we just the entire room dissolves on me. I will get to the sound look. There's a mutiny going on with the watching the football team and I've said I put that aside so we even cares the Zach Cranky had a no trade clause that he wouldn't go to the Yankees under any circumstance basically don't like that place so you can't rush that we're celebrating okay because Steve Balmer and they created a robot that can now think for itself and in Times of sports crisis. It could just go which was stand. Pat Fall back on Kerr roster of guys. We have in their odyssey wait for the some of the people that we have on the disabled list to come back are not normally that stable no. He's done a very good job. It's he's had job. What are you guys laughing about back there the whole room laughing. I'm firing off. These were young. Play the whole thing again and you guys tell me we need a definitive answer before the end of this segment prices that I felt were making things out of reach so where the region way line so you know. That's why we're talking about the decision to do. <hes> do what we did segment. He sounds like Patrick Mahomes. Who Does he sound like more. Someone who's speaking into a desk or a poorly constructed robot is Brian Cashman Sounding Q. Absolutely talking hold on a second I I can. I the set homes were he sounds exactly like I saw this on the sound sheet and I'm like man. This is big trade stuff and what's in your wallet. This is the Dan lebatardshow with Stugatz podcasts. You would think uh-huh Cashman is in the middle of the tabloids are killing him because he didn't do anything at the trade deadline and Houston get Zack Greinke and nobody. It doesn't get speak very well but soon we'll give him whatever you got these were. You've already given them that. The homes came into a into a desk fan base of mediums phasing facing the media and the fans and a fan. These were dangerous childhood. What's gently Russian Roulette and you play. I'M GONNA say it was I was forty six years old the first time I did it shows fans got it like really see what the content is here and just started picturing Tommy boy sitting at his desk talking the fan as soon as I hear the voice so which do you WanNa play here. Mike you WANNA play mahomes. You WanNa play more robot guy. I did I that of course mahomes. These were the robot quarter according to The Washington Post of the organizations entire non football staff it is such a defiant public gator games and now forty employees on the business side have left the team since Daniel Snyder fired. Someone Sterling has gone. Maybe it would be James Dolan but put this on the poll. Antonio who is the most despicable and evil owner is it Daniel Snyder named Brian Leff Amina. Yes very popular the former president of business operations that the C o this past December evidently that's a quarter has been vastly less terrible to work for but speaking of terrible owners. I don't know who the nominee would be from the audience now that Donald Sterling whereas it James Dolan because what's happening in Washington is not something you see very often where the football season's about to start the business staff has gotten through the hard like act to leave your money and leave the safety of that wonderful sport that continues to spew money all over the place. You must really not hard part this. The fun part starts now where you can actually sell the team as opposed to these last few months right where you're just drowning in work and you don't actually get the thrill of the gladiator. Why did these were these. Were these were. I'm not sure I would enjoy that job. That cashman has even as I know. It's a fantasy type of job with the coaching staff has frayed and he's just left. They're spending all these plates and his relationships have gone to crap. I don't know how the day I apologize to the audience I do. I feel terrible about that. Hold on a second <hes> it is hard as have no money before the season starts after Bruce Allin because it's it's affected his relationship with everybody. He's taken on all these additional duties. I'm not sure Bruce Allen got into this business to run business operations. Hey the season starts how any business of that size deals practically in the daily find going on and offer anyone who runs a fantasy league <hes> historically the steinbrenners have been pretty awful to work for not the sons. The father was terrible to work for the sons nations. He wants to do the fun stuff and now since he's doing all these things it's not only affected relationships on the business side obviously but reports are his entire relationship. God track of sixty two hundred dollar bills Mike. It's the created. It's the creative holiday of U._S. To soccer when it comes to gender discrimination this is what actually happened. He owed it. Eighty eighty dollars fine parts to have all of your business people. Does he have money or does he I again. We're GONNA do this. I don't know how that money slipped into my pocket this morning morning man. That's unfortunate. Hold on one hundred dollar bill. Pay Off all your fine. I'll have sixty dollars that you owe i-mode-like eighteen them candidates that places ziprecruiter dot com slash. Dan Ziprecruiter send your job to over one hundred of the Web's leading job boards but they don't stop there with their the other day. He didn't have one so he had to put a twenty seven and so we put that toward what he already owes reducing it to a sixty three dollar fine these were. I did WHO's these were. I did I did I. That is a five dollar five dollar major policy to the audience yeah. I'm sorry my phone went off but Daniels warm would be. I feel bad. MEHTA STU gods here hiring is challenging but there's one place you can go or hiring is simple fast and smart a place where growing businesses connect to qualify. We're getting closer. I mean the change. We have to stop doing these things writing aside from the I instead of agreements and I mean explain something to you. He's worse than made all right and then all of a sudden a twenty look. I've never given this sum of money before. I paid the five dollar major and fifteen on top of that okay not like the man that you work for forty people to give up their paychecks. That's a fine from autism boy. You really liked the guy that the owner fire combination about. Ah with seventy dollars and now he's telling us we owe him. Eighteen dollars like this is how he does it. He's like these transactions to be clean you know so if I give you twenty and a three dollar fun. I want the seventy back then I'll give you the seventeen if I seventy hair and grey pivot by him.

They dream relationship for him where he just has access who is aggressively lazy sloppy. Reckless unprofessional is talking to the coach of the jets at the height of his dreams and I want you to listen to some of what here is we stumble our way to E._S._P._N. granting us more and more access to things Mina kimes as quickly loves to God and he appeared on stupidity here and of course this is not going to surprise anybody right.

I am leaving Adam Gates. If we get food man I'm so happy because and you have to be thrilled as access to the head coach of the New York jets now he should not. It's a bad idea for everyone involved mostly for Adam Gates because late climbed up to a place where she is now doing her dreams thing which is she is going to be calling a rams game. She's going. I guess the dream quality candidate through the site within the first day right down. Our listeners can try ziprecruiter for free at this exclusive web address. Just go to Ziprecruiter. Dot Dream is probably more than one. She is a preseason voice a part of a team with Andrus Ileana Nate Burleson. She is part of the preseason. Garad cast positive thoughts. Everyone's on the Paul Antonio wants to God's laughing and fake laughing and real chewing at there's more there's more food actually by delivery while talking that case. He's one of the best running back. It's not the best running back as you're an offensive guy your head coach but man. You Got Weapons Man. I've never been so excited for a jetty in my entire life man. I don't know what to do with myself because I I'm food house levy on doing by the way there's more there's find myself having really positive thoughts about my football team but it's because of you. You have a million weapons on offense man. It's crazy. It's alright to have positive sauce everyone in league. You don't have to justify anything anyone. I just give me one second okay because once a year and I gotta go. Do this real quick one second yeah. I students will parlay this into self interest that will destroy the jets more than they've already been destroyed over the last forty years so far. I have parlayed that into me and Mike on the sideline sideline for the Browns jet game. I mean that's that's what I've done. Thus far with a relationship he is he is making use of his connection to Adam gays who is just strange enough to food it was like five minutes and and and you just come back with the laziest possible question of tell me about lady on like no thought whatsoever now what I was driving strategy was when I asked him the levy on question. I wanted to ask him something where I thought the answer would be long enough where I can get the food and not have to tell them house at the same time. It's all right to have positive sauce everyone's I. It's a nice Senate by Stanford. I'm telling you that Gat where I was getting the uh-huh up right there grabs his sandwich and goes right into the fake overlap with people in my mouth all right. I love doing by the way so now. The latest episode is out now continues what happens when the delivery guy arrives during recording someone's about to ring my doorbell with the delivery and I'm just get up and pay him real quick and then I'll come back. I used to be aggressively lazy in ways that are unprofessional gods and I have both had off air conversations with Adam Gates asking him to please dear God be that at on air is not is not everything. He is offaire on air. I hope he gets success so he could become everything history and everything else. His son was very good. Sports at one time was high stepping down sideline with the football six for trace Armstrong. This giant ran ran out of the stands chasing and yelling his son <hes> yelling at his son to like not be a jackass and or defensive end sack guy what he's got about one hundred sacks right <hes> in his career maybe you maybe more <hes> his son and he's you know he loves military history thing on air that he's been off air. It's amazing because you told me early on in coaches for the most part when you're talking about football they're just going to be Robo coach or quarterback as well. The been somebody with a wiffle ball right I guess but he just he tried to go up high. Maybe connected maybe on his own son <hes> trace Armstrong the former wherever I go off football without him as we were talking about wiffle ball and he plays it with his kids in his backyard and his kid hit a home run off of them and he pimped out a trot and so I asked him would would you do next time he came up and he said I've seen them like varies perfectly comfortable. He's a dad telling funny stories but when you talk about football man not that comfortable got a heart. It's forty and forty two okay very good. I did the math wrong. I took me a minute of air enough. We are feuding with Dion waiters though it would appear <hes>. Can you explain to me Mike because I do believe that this is among the lamest beef you will find anywhere in the N._B._A. Dion waiters coming after our show but evidently irresponsible and unprofessional and he got to looking like me out there because he wasn't taking care of his body and took care of his body in in a contract year thirty eight and forty two or whatever it is that there would however it is that you get to eighty games because dion waiters on a revenge tour because he was added our entire show and I'm not sure I can blame him and I'm not sure that there's much I would find funnier than a dion waiters revenge toward that ends at you know pull doing that and since he's retired quietly and I think he's a strip club Impresario Helvin. I G follow. I'll tell you that edge down incentives. I did not meal at the end of the game. I kept running. Don't put those bonuses in my contract. If you don't WanNa be running when there's money in the end zone like there weren't a lot of people so I wanted to ask about the other guy who I think of as raw and real here in Miami recently because Dion waiters apparently Matt at finally Joey Chestnut Major Leagues eatings number one Israel and rugged as raw as that dude was where he was willing to put his name on yeah. I had incentives in my contract. My coach wanted me to kneel had touchdown birthday to him. I don't care good luck. There have been few guys in the history of that League as Insurance Agency could help keep your personal property protected like if your roommate isn't the brightest pool float in the flooded basement visit geico dot com to see how easy it is to switch and save on Renter's insurance before we do that <hes> let us wish a happy forty first birthday to Miami's own entering Jane Happy Birthday of hours at the mall of Georgia four inch thirteen of those fried ways for family. We have motivated him because we played Word Association one time just dion waiters. What do you think of because what I think of his raw rugged real but everyone else you abstain from this game and not be better than everyone else and then show this has Lebron James spills onto the court losing shoes and his mind every time it's on Deng Geico presents another voicemail from your roommate chef really heya pipers in the basement. It's completely flooded anyway. I call for someone to fix it but in the meantime that God's would see the word Glutton and pronounce it gluten unbelievable number. One rated glutton devoured four hundred thirteen hooters chicken wings at twelve could've land right. He spelled it correctly the commerce of their everything's there. I'm just an idiot Antonio. Put It on the pole. Are you surprised in any way rated. Gluten devoured four thirteen hooters chicken wings. I it's glutton so bad. It's glutton and I can't blame Roy there. I'm not I was thinking we could finally that Indoor Pool Party. We will always wanted. I got some Cooler Swan floaty things already go and could you pick up some chips on your way home later the Geico for all the latest headlines that information to the sports that are on E._S._p._N. radio all throughout the day. I want to get to some Stephen Smith sound on Carmelo. Anthony in a second name is weird. I mean because I don't think of him as anything but funding that you're doing that thing where you got us to say what you wanted to what are what. Are you guys really because I I was thinking. I was thinking efficient. Actually that's what I was thinking. That's me I'm not the one who takes all the hits when God says I think when you think of Dion waiters Chris cody ventures into the waters. I I love that man when I saw that video made it boys only for a number of reasons the idea of this particular guy being body shamed by the Internet is just unbelievably funny. The idea of him being hurt got double. You guys are only sticking to me in ways that have many blessings and also have many tortured. Roy's at the top and in this room. I'm second day thank you. Can you imagine the bids though with the people knew that dion waiters was gonNa Punch you in the face got some form of raw rugged a real instead all of you guys dead just ball hog inefficient making fun of him selfish all the things we thought busier. WHOA wait a minute. I believe the list of people who have been in the heat lager doing reporting over the last five years <music> out if you insulted all rugged and real some forty percent shooting welcome to the sort by when I don't imagine that any feeling hurts dion waiters. I believe that he is made of just barbed wire. Who Will Scratch your face. I laughed at him. I'm like shooter suggest he's good at it. That laugh is gonNA. Come back on me when you don't go into their locker room and I have heard you walk. I don't believe that was the thank you for make sorry blue closer temperatures pence in this and we never said anything bad about the but here's the thing you geysers gave me the answer. I didn't want because I thought all of you were going to do some Indiana waiters around all room looking for a nice for him to hear that okay so what happened what because now he's getting hurt by social media and to me. It's funny right. It's funny intimidation. I guess sap is worse all the stuff. You've got to trust me when I say the waiters is mad at me for things you guys upset. There's a little closer to that. Yeah we got beef with the waiters. Carbon has beef and somehow hasn't eaten it have to Jimmy V. Foundation for twenty-five rain by me so they can watch dion waiters. Punch me in the face because you laugh at him got you on the. He'd be Warren. SAPP's got a bad breath problem. No it really is. It's me always putting the things on you guy bit of a different into in terms of media which is actually kind of cool you can get past like the way that he shutting us up is by hitting open jumpers in a gym either way it begins with you asking Word Association. What do you think that's three hundred cities where everyone does the same things you do. That's three hundred cities where people think they're the only ones who know about that one place three hundred cities where people missed someone in one of our other that trust me. You say you think I want you to say it on my behalf. If I walk into the lobby trying to give you the answer you wanted Dan unwilling participants <hes> Jesus said what are you doing. I put it on the poll. Antonio Dion Dion waiters exactly the beef. This crappy show deserves as it is like we're just this team that didn't make the playoffs guy amy he motivated dion waiters so Chris has his things got says on earned arrogance. Roy Ventures in with like probably the best description of them which shooter and two hundred ninety nine sixty three hundred cities where people sing in the car or the shower or both Delta isn't flying to three hundred cities merely to bring us together home. What happened what did I don't know what I want to produce a video forum because I don't think he actually went to his Mac book and started cutting this up but someone produced a video that he shared on social barely played last year a guy who is just full of himself beyond delusion where the forty and forty two yard are we the fortieth? Ah Welcome Dog. Is that what you said. It was part of our plan. We talked about this on a local IRA motivated. We said to ourselves what the heater during our working <hes>. We gotta do it yeah. You're welcome Miami other to show us. We're not that far apart of Delta. Keep climbing forty or thirty eight and forty. Two waiters just held up a mirror to US Delta. We fly to three hundred cities around the world what you wanted us to say. It's amazing. It's amazing how you guys do that. You never got around to raw rugged unreal. I did get around to it. Just sort of you know I was waiting accorded so you could check out party now. I it is out to God's talking to among others Diana receding and Adam Gays and a delivery guy <hes> you can check that out. Stupidity is out now. We've got more man. WanNa one commercials that we have on Camello. Anthony and I am super excited Carmelo Anthony Stephen Smith the interview tomorrow on I take they like each other like it. Just doesn't I have not heard when Stephen a Smith who likes Carmelo Anthony C._N._A. Smith believes in the greatness of what was God infuriating. Yes thank you so Stephen a Smith Stephen a listen anywhere in America that is celebrating or agreeing with Carmelo Anthony's contention according to his trainer saying it's a bleacher report that he hello Anthony and he thought Camello Anthony was for a long time good for the New York Knicks have now very much frustrated. Stephen a Smith in a way that makes him yell and Holler on television more than on to settle the beef if you're not familiar. Tony Boselli is a mammoth man. <hes> you know as good a left tackle as there has ever been and he hates all my go. Kobe got it and Dwayne God it and Tim Duncan would have got it if he wanted it. Part of it is twenty years dedicated to making a single Taylor feels. He's every bit. The man Tony Boselli isn't Fred Taylor saying how can Tony Boselli be the best job ever when I'm the best Jag ever so I wanNA call this a competition between jags. I WANNA refer to it okay. I won't do that any who stephen a Smith had some sound since the Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Here's Doctor Jay Julius Irvine's obviously Michael Jordan guys like that the way way and Dirk Nowitzki Championships her <hes> semen. I will always give his opinion to your face. It's part of the reason that the people in the N._B._A. respect him so much because he doesn't hide from anybody but he likes Carmelo the opinions on everything because he doesn't think I'm enough of a man and he's right. I'm not compared to him. Very few are but one of them who is Fred Taylor Fred. He wants a farewell tour when he doesn't have a fan base that even tolerates him never mind appreciate yeah like okay so his his trainer. Smith has an opinion on Carmelo. Anthony and I'm trying to find the person Mike I can't find you gotta find what's in your throat though I I can't find the person an earth a treasure trove of them. We've got what appears to be some beef between Fred Taylor and Tony Boselli. We will see if we can <hes> get them on this is D. Wade sendoff as if it were charity that stuff was earned brother. He was the best player on the team. He was awesome. Oh but part of it also has to be here accomplish. What won a competition between jags be if you only had a couple of syllable. d- to work with it would be a Jaguar off a face off a a face off is the phrase that I was looking for. They saw doing they face off. What am I doing. What cellular jailer doing they're sitting here arguing? You're with him for them. Oh you're in you open capable of subtlety. I wasn't even being that subtle uneven usually Yeltsin hollers on television and here he is talking about the idea that Carmelo Anthony WanNA farewell tour. I don't think he deserves a farewell to hit. It's when it's time Lebron James Champion everybody I mentioned champion and so for me they have to be at least a moment where what you gotTa do a farewell tour with the Sacramento Kings but it's it's a special kind of delusion that Carmelo Anthony evidently doesn't own mirrors hit a New York Knicks. He deserves to be on it. If you had a Denver Nuggets he deserves to be on it. When you talk about a League Wide Farewell Tour. Let's think about that the Magic Johnson Fan base happy as opposed to what he's done which is make every fan base he's ever been in front of Anapa. Every place outside of Denver has been happy to see him leave and you said that he's better than seventy percent of the players league. Oh Okay and he said that he wants to the D. Wade like sendoff which kind of this Mrs Viewing and then an obvious face off between jags they are arguing about. Who's the Best Jag ever. It's a Jag off. We're looking at you in the world was yours because you delivered we can point to that. D Way For Jordan Corinne Magic bird except well. Do they know how to do get Outta here wait. I don't get your accenture. That's not what we could say about Nello and so I think the farewell tours should be reserved for tipping. I don't quite remember somebody who didn't have playing all those guys. You mentioned largely played for one team. I mean Kareem abdul-jabbar. <hes> you know early in his career switch teams but they're associated with one team title. Forgive me but I'm very big on that. Title Chip Matters Man. I don't think it's the championship I don't. I think it's service for over seventy five years. She thinks it's obvious you should switch because yes switching to gyco is a no brainer pity in a most nesting doll and her lot in life in a bronze medal in basketball. POPs A head coach. Come on pop. Let's be great God. Is there a worst fit then Carmelo Anthony Unity because it's reported that there's no interest from team U._S._A. But he should have had his farewell width team U._S._A. Correct. He's our most decorated international basketball champion. That is <music> offer if you're team U._S._A. Why would you not do that. Have the name is the is the name of Carmelo Anthony so stained and it was so frustrating because you can never really replicate that in the N._B._A. In terms of fitting into a role because Carmelo always eight I and degree. He ate most on that on that team U._S._A. Eighteen but it worked I would have loved with all these M._B._a. Players dropping left and right for him to make this team U._S._A. Fiba World Cup Rosser it would have been a great story great story but continuous as about winning the actual World Cup look man. You can't tell me that Carmelo Anthony still not good enough to be one of the best players on team is exactly where he you ask people who know the greatest international men's basketball player that the United States ever had the most affected with everyone with everyone and the fifteenth man on a row. Wouldn't you rather wouldn't you rather let's just what would America prefer. Wouldn't you rather if you'RE GONNA lose or win the gold medal wouldn't you rather feuding with dion waiters. I believe that this team this show which has campaigned for Joe Charles Oakley not to be banned by the Knicks. I believe we need to make this. Our next failed 'cause smeared right now that you don't WanNa rap the flag in it. I would love to wrap the flag in it. I know this network was which is carrying those games would absolutely love to have Carmella. That'd be really great ause getting Carmelo Anthony on team U._S._A. Because he deserves it. He doesn't deserve a farewell tour. He deserves most of the laughter that he gets. Let's go awesome. Would they want him they. There's no interest from team U._S._A. I can understand but you guys I mean. Bio is a good player but pay amount of by just accepted an and that's where he's a decorated champion. That's where he would. He want to do any of that because you got a bunch of guys who don't want to do that anymore. I think it'd be good for him. The awesome I wonder which one of those matters more winning title for a city or just being someone who was in that city being excellent for two decades well. I think this is a missed opportunity. That'd be really cool and we love Holzer lame. We shouldn't do that. Why is Carmelo a guy that Americans are clamoring for. I mean I get it. He was a nice player in the league but he was never this captivating per separated international it. Could he mellows thing. If Coach K. was the coach of this team he would be invited because of the history that they have. I feel like the new popping the new head. Guy National Champion is always helps us win internationally more than anybody yeah. He is supply. I mean so yeah. It's a good it's the perfect situation for. No one wants team U._S._A. When everyone else is rejecting the ability to play on Team U._S._a. Yeah but this is the same discussion we're having with the N._B._A. You can't tell me Carmelo. Anthony is better do it with Carmelo than not with Carmelo. I think he'd rather have Carmelo. Yes yeah I think to a pole at America could vote Carmelo. Anthony into the steam wants to be on the team. No one's good enough to be that much better than him. He could win be the best player takes sixty shots hurt and we will absolutely <hes> win any with Gregg Popovich like I love to see go ahead. Let's see how what a good coach you walk aloe. Anthony Walks on one side of the street and a Hoodie and Gregg Popovich goes to the other hi to think if we could sadly she has no brain however when immersed nesting doll here's the GEICO not only saves people money but also has been providing great service uh-huh Popovich and Bay Heim and coach K. Popovich is the youngest though yeah and the poor guy. He's trying to prove himself. ooh Give a break at the end. Let's consider the secret life of the most nesting doll living most of her life in the dark inside the other nesting dolls. She has plenty of time itself in the shadow of a legend and coach k. He needs to assert himself. This team needs to take Popovich's identity. You can't just let Carmelo Anthony. I think we need to get behind that. Instead of yeah is the young buck trying to assert. We're GONNA play my Ron just talking about their relationship with coach ducks three. No you're not on the their sides haired of just the basketball scared of just the basketball doesn't want to be anywhere near the basketball guys. He wears a Hoodie when he works out really relax school. Nobody is right because time is usually assisted when coach guy is having the other young buck a minute.

But tonight Everybody's back in action again and and for for me it's ranger islanders. Yesterday got a chance to spend a little bit with matt. Sydney doodoo and everything was great. And you know matt told me a story yesterday. And i was wondering whether or not i should tell it on the air and i thought no i thought this would really give people a really good perspective of where my son in law's coming from and you know his mindset about now obviously. We're talking rangers islanders. And you know. I was talking. Maybe i'll go the game tonight. You know and he's like going to the game tonight and then my daughter's yelling at me are you really gonna game. You're gonna go with me. And i'm going to go with me. He said if i go to game i'm not going with i'm just not going with. I love you dearly. I love my granddaughter dearly. Up i would not go to the game with you just as there's no way so mad kind of gets drill. And he understands it. Know he'd love for me to go to the game and you know i'm not conflicted. I want my team the win sure especially with the way that my teams have been playing as of late. We're trying to make a play of pushing. We got to win this game tonight. So matt tells me a story during the off season. So i guess. I'm not a gamer. So i guess. Ps five came out of new. Ps five controller came out this year. Okay and you know. He works with the guys over their pc richard and the guy from pc. Richard pro told them say. Hey look you know. We don't have any in right now. But i can put your vip program in your your. And i honor your he. How many how many would you like to get so fat. Knew that a couple of his teammates would probably want one. Maybe gonna would want one. Whatever i got worse so anyway he ends up getting five. Ps five controllers so his new goalie sarokin base comes to him and says you know. I'd like to hear you have controller. I like to buy controller. You know that kind of thing and he then says was not really for me for my best friend and matt saw for your best friend. Who's your best friend and he goes. Oh right macos now. That doesn't play around here giving you and selling you a ps five for iglesias shirk. It's right right right so we live so mad. Kinda gets it i. I don't know if she ever got one. But i'm sure trying to get a first best friend sirkin sarokin historic and we're best friends. I didn't know that. Did you know that i knew that. You didn't know that. Obviously play together over and russia and everything else. And that's what makes us even more intense that you have two best friends going against each other but you know maybe they just don't understand the ranger-islander thing. I'm sure that they understand it now. But it just highlighted to me once again. Why i'm right in this whole thing. Yeah see matt wouldn't sell his teammate. A ps five to give to his best friend who plays for the rangers. If he played for any other team in the league he would have probably sold. Home of course would not sell it thome because the guy plays for the rangers the right thing. Yeah you know talking about yes sir. Answer you guys. Actually practice shooting on net in practice. I was just wondering because cfpb squirrel had a late so we had a lot of good back and forth yesterday a huge game for both teams tonight and then. Of course the mets and the yankees are back in action The knicks got that. That's a huge game charts behind them. Boston lost last night. The knicks are tied with boston so a lot of this starting to happen now especially for hockey and basketball as we approached the final throws probably the last three weeks of the regular season. Sure you think about. Brian cashman having to make some comments yesterday. I think you that if you were him. Would you same thing i would. I would have resigned. What of is because aaron. Boone is starting to hear it. And we here try to be as logical and is practically possibly can be and i listen billy martin's not walk through the door and back in the old days you could you. Could you could change things up by bringing in a personality. Like billy martin the gut the gut manager the guy that was not afraid to get anybody's face in this day and age. That's a it's a completely different game. It's managed a different way. And the reason that aaron boone is here is because he listens to the front office. He works with them very closely. does does not give him the old stiff arm. I know more baseball than you do. And he works well with that group on that side of the team and the players actually do like him and they may not be looking at the men look like. They're applying for him right now but baseball is like again. It's one hundred sixty two game season. There they'll come out of eventually. They will come out of it. And eventually the glacier tour of the world the aaron judge's of the world the dj lemay use. The world are all going to start raking again. They're all going to start raking again. And everything's going to get back to normal. But i do think that if i'm brian cashman i have to come out and say something because you listen to this radio station. All the fans are all over. Aaron boone. on my guys it's not bone. He does not put the team together. He does not play the game and if and if he mismanaged the game mismanaged a substitution or or lineup. Match up or something like that which we all know that he's with the front office with then it would be easy to say. Get rid of the guy. But he's a good guy. He's a good baseball guy. Reminds me of aj hinch. Who was a celebrated manager prior to all the cheating scandal. Down there in houston. But i just. It's a players that have to start to perform. They have to start the hit and eventually that will come. The question is. Is it going to come this series the next series the series after that. Because i'll tell you the having one of the worst records not the worst record in baseball is a roy embarrassing when it comes to the of course. Now there's two very distinct takes. That are very different on the yankees right. The first one is it's early. they'll figure it out. Look at the track record. Look at these guys. they'll be fine. The other is. They are fundamentally flawed. And it's not about having a good regular season it's about having a good postseason and the roster be it stacked with big-time hitters. There are flaws on roster. And we've seen it too many times. And i think the reason why it's a good argument is both sides. Have legitimate points. Yes it is very early. Yes the yankees could still win one hundred games. I mean they started out and boone's first year six and nine and ended up winning one hundred and three games. That's only a game worse than where they are now so sure they could turn it around but really. I think what the yankee fan. That's nervous keeps reminding. Themselves of is how they've been beaten by better teams in the postseason every single year. It's not like they have underachieved. They're just getting beat by better teams. It's not like they're going into these series and choking they're not going into the post season as the best team and then losing somebody who's got no business beaten them they're going into these series and losing the better teams and they haven't improved when you get off to a start with your five games under five hundred that's a real number regardless of where you are in the season but does a real significant situation that has taken place last year and a half or last year and in the beginning of the season and that is the tampa bay rays and when you compare the two teams and you look at the disparity in money that is spent on the players it just it just throws gasoline on the fire and the fact that the rays came in here in yankee stadium and swept them and garrett cole pitch a third of those three games it is just. It's about as low as it can get. I mean think about that for a second and it is is about us annoying and frustrating as it can get for fan so when you combine all the things that you just said and then you get swept at home by the tampa bay. Rays knocked you out last year. Who basically have owned you own. They own the yankees. Yeah bitch slap them all over the place. Yeah and in a playoff. Yes exactly right. So that is what is fueling. This angst this spire this. Like get rid of boone whole narrative and brian cashman. It's been around here for a long long long long time. Brian cashman looks okay. And he's never he's not gonna panic. He will not panic. Yeah he'll make moves because we've seen him make in season. The fell problems like you already made a move door here. She knew he had a problem at first base and move away. Lemay you over there. So it's not like he sits on his hands and does nothing sure. But there's only so much you can do is point in the season and for the last two or three years. He's actually pushed all the right buttons. When you think about it when they brought in didi gregorius to take over for derek jeter. That was a brilliant move when they brought in jio or shovel here at the third base. That was a brilliant move. They brought in talk man. He turned out when he first got here. You know was awesome. It's an awesome baseball player for them and was one of the reasons i guys like. He and mike ford and luke foyt when they brought void in. When you know all all of these different moves that he has made have worked out the one area where i think he has. Unfortunately it hasn't worked out for him has been the starting pitching starting pitching coach him and he did a three hundred. After pitches one. I understand but after that it sort of been okay. What's next year. You'll let tanaka go severino at his injuries. Thought davey garcia would take a step this year. He's still may when he comes back. But and then you sort of patchwork in the thing with jamison taione corio j. hat brought in you had and brought in. You had all these guys brought in. You had tanaka here so now you have a completely different pitching staff by do think her mind and severino are going to be big players in this whole thing you know. Maybe it won't all take root and told the second half of the season. I'm not sure. And what makes it fun for us as we get to talk about this. Because they're miserable right now and they're behind pay teams in the league. Yeah well they just can't get buried is what it comes down to. They can't get buried and when you're five games under five hundred this early i. It's a possibility five turns to ten. Then you've got to really dig yourself out of a hole you know. I'm not an anti analytic guy. I'm not. I've never really are changing now. Changing the new england patriots have been doing this for years and years and years and years and years and years and years but there is a thing that is called. You know the the eye test you gotta go with your gut every now and again and if a guy has four hits on tuesday and then you're gonna take them out of the lineup on wednesday just simply because the numbers say that he's not gonna hit against the you know. The left handed pitcher that he's going to be saying i. I kinda hate that. I see that part of it. I don't like sometimes you gotta go with the tests and sometimes that's why we say analytics is good. But when you're in a game you know sometimes those analytics they may help you make a decision but ultimately if garrett cole is going you know got ninety six pitches and he's in the eighth inning and tells you that you know pitched ninety six to pitch hundred and eight is hasn't been good for him his. I'm just giving you a hypo- hypothetical example assault for him taking him out as as opposed to say garrett cole how are you feeling you feel like you've throw ninety six pitches you feel like you're spent an actually getting a real live answer from him in an answer from him and if he says i feel great all right you know what screw the analytics. Put them back out there. Because what i've seen today. Is i want this guy to go back out for another inning and continue his quest to try to get a complete game and that's to me is where the analytics is fine. You know it and you know what you have in the bullpen. And you know what you have coming up from the other team. But i also want my manager. I want my coach. I want my hockey coach. I want my basketball coach to know exactly what he's seeing and allow his experience to make those decisions in the heat of battle. Which i think is where the coaches really do make their money or garrett cole got up to one hundred nine pitches on sunday and one of that was actually going through my head like wow. I'm surprised that they are allowing this to happen. At this point. I guess just the feel of the game where he was and monday early in the season. Plus plus they they knew if he was gonna throw that many pitches. They knew that this was a game that they had to have. At least that's the way they felt about your of course and they understand what's happening now. I know they do now. I just to me. The downplaying. It is is not the way to go. I know overreacting going to the point where it's like. Oh they're done. They're terrible the not gonna make the playoffs. They don't feel that that's extreme. That's insane but i mean five games under five hundred is an. It's an annoying. Hold the climb out even though you are still fifteen games into the season. I mean you if they win. Let's just say the knicks the next one six in a row. They are now officially the hottest team in the nba. Because boston lost last night. So if they if the yankees on a four game winning streak that one game under five hundred i understand i mean so. It's not like the end of the world and they can do it starting tonight though they're going to have to do it starting tonight thank you eventually. They will eventually. I don't think for one minute that brian cashman isn't scouring major league baseball looking for the things that they feel are necessary to help them get over the hump and get this thing going the right way if it's not if it's not just for the guys in the locker room already so they'll be changes and maybe one of the big changes may maybe aaron hicks needs a couple of days off. Y'all maybe just needs to sit and rest and relax. You know whatever's bothering him. Whatever whatever it may maybe he just needs time off. Yeah and i'm not saying whoa out of uniform. I'm saying in uniform. Maybe as a pinch hitter or something else. Just just let them relax for a minute. And let them grapple with whatever he's grappling with whether it's what's happening in min- minneapolis or whatever. Just give them a break and then when he comes back hopefully he'll get his mojo back and he'll be the player that they paid him to be. I don't know it's a weird deal it's baseball. It's a hundred freaking game. One hundred sixty two games. I know a long season and we're not used to this because last uranian habit or an april toot. We have to remind ourselves what it's like davos hundred and sixty two game season because it's been a long time. I don't think really. Honestly when i when i think about the pressure these athletes in most of and think about your personal life and i think moving and all the crap going on and trying to cable setup and tv's and and You know you don't have a garage you can go to put stuff in your basement now and all that crap that you've gone through over the last. I thought. I think you've really handled it very well. Thank you but you haven't brought it to work. You have been led to distract you. You've been focused. Laser focused laser focused. But i could just imagine your day in beautiful bucolic town of savings just all the things that you're dealing with right now y- yeah no thank you. I appreciate that. That's a high compliment coming from you. And i will remain. Laser focused every single day talking about our right each the morning show with boomer esiason and gregg giannotti boomer and geo more number stress'll is available at stictly furniture and mattress visit shop. Stictly dot com to restless. That's right. what is stress list. That sounds good to me. It's awesome is what it is. That's right all right very good to do this for tv. Brian cashman style on zone for people who can't see jerry he's doing the classic zoom up. The nose face situation which brian cashman was yesterday. Not everybody's good at zoom as we are jerry but yeah that was pretty funny nor do i wanna see myself like that. So yeah you got yankees braves tonight. yankees are five and ten. The braves are seven and nine. Jamieson tyrone faces. Charlie morton pregame coverage on the fan after carton and roberts five fifty five and the game coverage on sports radio sixty six. Wfan a. am. Ronald coon junior day to day with the app. Strain as four brian. Cashman one of you guys asked the question right off the top like why why. Come out and talk to the media. Yesterday here was cash. Visit me being on his car. Right now is an off day They'll want to run and hide from it. One acknowledge officer disappointing play. We mentioned five and ten five game. Losing streak haven't played well the tampa obviously not what they expect. We're really disappointed in how we started this season. He says he understands the hitters. Haven't hit but they will visual below average performances. Those get corrected. We believe over time and i would like to thank you gene anytime. I hear the two words below average. I can't get charley casserly out of my mind. Below average exactly As for the star now we know garrett cole has been good but they've had issues with the starting pitching beyond that. Of course starters will get online and get us that distance in and get us that consistently good performance every five days Just hasn't happened on the outset. Not much length so far from starting pitching and if anybody thought that brian cashman was gonna come out yesterday and say aaron boone. You fired well. That was wrong. Don't eat can do within his power saw and we don't give them any power so he's not. He's not the one putting the lineup. he's just there talking to the media. So i don't have to. That is true. Now tying all this together you've got the medicine chicago playing the cubs tonight and yet seinfeld on with the yesterday. He's a met fan as we know. He's not exactly crying for the yankee fan. Do feel sympathetic to them as met fans when things aren't going well we're fine. We're used to it. But the yankee fan has doesn't have that. has no What are we. call it. resilience well not used a tough time. No resilience i to know what he's saying. Know resilience by points at yankee fans like seinfeld too you gotta be careful right. Remember did michael jordan say republicans buy sneakers to all. That's right yes. You're talking about like a huge fan base here going after them. Yeah i mean he kind. I know where. He's coming from in the sense of yankee fans when it's bad for yankee fans if feel so much worse because they're not ever supposed to be bad. Where the mets fan we have. We callous that this point. We've seen it on the field off the field. It's just been a joke for most of our fandom. So i get that but yeah you're right you gotta watch out. I will say as a met fan. I don't remember the last time i heard met player. Say that i'm not playing a game. Goes had soreness yeah. I've never heard that. I didn't know that until this year. I'm sure i can find one. And i thought for sure after listening to you. Yeah that aaron judge was going to be out for six weeks pending an mri for the nets boomer. Just me by the many yankee fans calling up that said i think he's probably i think you amplified it. Okay well yeah because of the history to track record right track record. That's what it is. What's the back of the baseball card. Say isn't a track record backward. Baseball guard says that he misses a lot of games exactly. Yeah names fifty games. Taiwan walker jake tonight in chicago to be lovely thirty six degrees first pitch light snow in chicago today so stupid Also from yesterday the dodgers lost to the mariners four three cardinals over the nationals. Twelve five giants blanked the phillies to zip. And you add the race. They win again. They beat the royals four one. Kevin care meyer drove in a couple of runs. That's four straight wins for them and the red sox when they're eleven of the season there are eleven in six now the beat the white sox to four tonight on the fan. You've got the nets in new orleans against the pelicans. So here's your list tonight okay. Kevin durant ruled out. nick claxton. Reggie perry ruled out. Because of the league's health and safety protocols james harden ruled out tyler johnson ruled out kris. Jio's out i don't know who's playing aside from kyrie irving if he shows up That'll be on the fan whatever right. Fm at seven fifty. On the answer. This i probably should know it. But who or where is there g. league team. Don't play in long island. Yeah i think the long island nets. Yeah on that team. I just perch know. They just signed elysee johnson. They have him. You got joe harris. You got the andre jordan who got a d. n. p. last game. They've got bodies. But i mean good little bruce brown will be there. I'm sure but it is man. It's struggle right now to get healthy bodies on the floor for them so Whatever their thirty. Eight and nineteen The knicks are thirty one and twenty seven. They take on the hornets who are twenty. Eight and twenty eight accepted the six game winning streak and they're not tied with boston for fifth in the east because the celtics had their six game winning streak come to an end. They lost to the bulls. One zero two to ninety six warriors. Get forty nine from steph curry. All he goes ten of seventeen from and they trailed twelve. Nothing in a blink. Last night they come back. They beat the seventy sixers. Did the warriors one. Oh seven ninety six curry just on some incredible tear. Then you had what was probably the game of the night a double overtime game between the nuggets and the grizzlies and your boy yokich with a big game and bigshot to yokich. Three three yeah. They wound up winning this game. One thirty nine one thirty seven yokich. A forty seven points fifteen rebounds and nine assists and won the mvp last night jerry. That's what i think pretty. I met a lot of people. Have them right up there. Pretty good last night for sure. And then you had the suns beat the bucks in overtime. That could have been a game tonight to. I suppose one twenty eight. One twenty-seven devon booker had twenty four. The go ahead. Free throw with point three left on the clock of aa jump. Shot from the corner. Here was janas antenna cuco dealing with leg cramps throughout especially towards the end last play. He happened again But the time you know you don't know what it is. You might be a compromise. The estate doesn't seem like it's anything but we will certainly keep an eye on that as phoenix boy. Phoenix is really good as they continue to win and win and win the heat. The rockets one thirteen ninety one kendrick nunn had thirty in. The jazz knocked off the lakers. One eleven ninety seven still no lebron. Still anthony davis in that game For the lakers rangers and islanders face off at the coliseum. Tonight kors big game for both clubs and you got the devils skating in pittsburgh sharks forward. Patrick marleau made history last night. And i'll just say it this way. Move over wayne randazzo. You tell me. G if in twenty twenty one dan rostenkowski doesn't sound like it's nineteen twelve as gives us the call marlow lined up against patch already. The puck is dropped and history is officially made heck has now all time games played leader in national hockey league. history. I milo lined up against paddy.

The president roosevelt at the front throws them a puck. Everything's working out marlowe now has the record. The great depression is over and the boys are back home. Now i gotta find. I would find a goal of his because that was obviously last night. They lost the game so see friday afterwards and he did. He talked about how much he loves hockey in coming to the rink and everything i bet you if you play boomer would cry to know. I did cry last night watching this. You crowd really. Yeah guys spit as you know. The half of his entire life in the national hockey league did ask. What does it mean to keep showing up or something. he's loves. the game of hockey man doesn't like okay. I will certainly look for that if i can find anywhere else. Dan rucinsky on sharks radio so that his one thousand seven hundred sixty eight career climbed into his studebaker. You never know Former niner chief. Washington quarterback alex smith announced his retirement yesterday. Patrick mahomes spoke glowingly of him with the injury that he had to be able to come back and latest team into the playoffs to showed the type of man that he is type of team team player that he is and and I'm just. I'm just grateful for the time that i had with them. That really developed me to be the quarterback that i am today and andy. Reid was one of his coaches is.

The morning show with boomer esiason in gregg giannotti boomer and geo president george bush. I figured it might be one of the president's. Actually that's be president. Bill clinton now we talk about george w. h. w. h. w. george h w bush and then bill clinton all's yet all right. It's pretty good. I can't compete with that. But i got close last night. I did. this happened last night. This is the most famous person michael jordan. michael jordan. Honored your name. Well yeah. I mean you know we've had the same agent okay. I mean publicly golf tournaments and things yes of course for for usa. He's pretty famous without a doubt muhammad ali. Oh that almost that's gotta take the cake with thing so you got a lot of guys. I don't have these experiences so when it happens for me it's a big deal. I would still think president bach. The rocks up there rocks up there. You have a tremendous amount of names. And by the way. I you know i say your name all the time. I don't count. No you do okay but you were actually the most famous person to have uttered my name before last night. You were the guy. If someone said who's the most famous person ever say your name. I would say boomer size interviewed a lot of people that have said your name but my full name now. Not my full name. You know coach cower but does you gregg giannotti. Does he say that. No jill sims not on the level of what. I'm about to play okay. So last night on. Wfan steve somers. Has jerry seinfeld on and jerry seinfeld. Heard something that. I said as steve for clarity on it. Steve didn't know and he started just talking and talking and talking but the point is this moment for me was a big deal. Like i'm having deja vu right here here. Let me here. And i'll tell you why sniffed of in the morning Gregg giannotti telling a story about me calling in and that he was baby producing for you one he get that whole story. What was that one. Well he he was base for. Stephen is it gives. The wrong story. Doesn't always talking about. And then jerry later goes. No i think greg said something about interaction that me and him had on the phone that he didn't like so he went back and said my name my first name again so the story is and i know you remember because i've said it before when same deal seinfeld on with summer many years ago probably two thousand and seven range in there. He calls up to the phone because on the guy who answers the phone is a producer. And i say hey jerry. We are thrilled to have. Were so excited here to be able to talk to you. Steve's excited everybody's excited and he responds to me on the phone he goes. So is steve or not. That's what he said very flat very condescending right like i don't need to talk to you is steve. They're not so. And then i used to compare that to the larry. David interaction with larry. David was on with summers and he was like. Oh this is great. I'm so happy and everything else and he was so nice to me so that was the story that seinfeld was asking for jerry was asking for last night. That summers had no idea right but that was it now. He also went on and said he wished knew that interaction what it was because because he said that's where comedy comes from moments like that like misunderstandings and things and that's why i wanted to know about it. The comedic genius i am. I understand bottle. And by the way the reason i said that i feel like deja vu is because jerry seinfeld once said craig's name. Yeah on steve somers. You know who i think. Is that the guy in the morning. credit card and now here i am reort years later and i feel like the same things happening all over again. He's not saying anything about you. Know we we. He and i talked. Oh you did. Yeah we talked and he goes look straight guy always got sixty percent of the gate. I totally agree with him on that. So cool. I'm sure it was a cool moment for craig. It's a cool moment for me. Jerry seinfeld says you name. He says you listening. So i don't know if at some point greg geneidi. Yes there you go now. So what do i do from here. Because he was legitimately interested in knowing that story out so he was asking and then he didn't get the right answer and he asked again. He said i'd love to know because this comedy comes from. This is what he said. Where do i go from here. Do we just leave it alone to. We hope that. here's me. Tell the story again. Do you have a contact for him. So i can tell them the story. Where do we go from here. I have a guy that i that you could have an email to a guy to the key to the guy. The guy who's got a double guy guided guided guy. Guy may get the second guy and then eventually it will get on the first guy. I them provide the guy the second guy. There's a guy that he has. Its has mango. Yeah now is this a worthy reach out moment because he feels like he was actually interested. They at least to me. It sounded like if you played the second half of that. But steve just goes on and on greg if you played the second half of it where he says i'd love to know those. I'd love to know what that interaction was. Yeah he have just been saying that on the air and he was like jail here it who go enlist do it and he did you he could have just been saying say inst- totally pooh poohing this on you. I mean he brought up his go to the go to the second part of that. After steve's done with own anything. And then was larry and two. I said Invention team and then steve awkwardly brings up at the very end to after he hangs up. We'll rear not your thing. He brings us the whole thing about the email again. Like why is he bringing this up again. You can ruin it. She's and don't bring it up again. So yeah after. Steve goes on for like a minute. He goes. Jerry says no. That's not one of them was an interaction at greg. Said he had on the phone with him. Yeah and i don't know i. I don't know that one. I don't know but i do remember night. In nineteen seventy two. When i was in san francisco judge with a no. But i thought i heard greg say something that there was some kind of something that i said to him as a producer that he didn't care for. I don't know okay because that love these things you know. This is where we pick somebody from from these little Tweaks and and misunderstanding. Okay so i love these things and twice asked about. I think this is worthy for reach out. Reach out reach out reach out worthy for reach out. Hey you know. Attach audio clip. Jerry said he loved to know. If you'd like to hear the story. I could tell them. The story and the great thing is yet around your the funny guy. He's the funny in reach guys can talk this out and make something into it. Yeah that's what i think right. That's what i think. But he was. There is no two ways about the two worst phone interactions. I had with famous people. Chris carter and jerusalem. Yeah i was probably jersey greg. I i'm not saints. Not in that moment jerk as regular as got with us very friendly to me on the phone producer when i put on the furrow totally friendly and very sad not denying any of that. I'm just saying in that moment that day. Maybe i was. He had a bad day. He had a bad moment. Somebody have a bad day or they can have a bad day. I'm just telling you that was my experience. I have had experiences with gasoline. I can't remember who they are. Where where when i said you know we were in a commercial break so i was really trying to kill time to may not make. It seem so long so we'll boomer said this and dead air and i just like all right hold on. I know some people. Don't wanna talk to you. They don't want to talk to the help. That's gonna come to the producers. I call into another programmer show. You're a different breed of person. When i understand the radio mechanism and now the producers and important part of every show. Yeah when they show up who would have thought that. And i've said many times the nicest guy ever in those interactions bill. Belichick would've thought it. Looks like the biggest jerk. He was the nicest guy but our was jerked to. Those are miserable misunderstand. Tommy that was also misled. It was has been unfortunate interactions with bill. Cowher it's no. I don't think it's on him. I think they've been fortunate. Interactions yeah right okay. Well he's calmed down a little bit. He understands you. He knows he goes in that house. Awkward right yep. He's awkward right. Yeah but i can understand from jerry. Seinfeld's perspective he's calling up. You probably just wanna do this thing with summers anyway. He agreed to do it. He knows he's going to be on with for an hour. And here. I am like overexcited. Producer jerry seinfeld cool. And he's like. I didn't sign up for this. I'm here to talk to steve. You probably went over a little bit of polly did and and that probably got him. I get off the coming thing is. It's unbelievable look. Ask diane and cranford. Dan what's happening. Hey guys warranted. I first of all you guys make me laugh every morning on my way to work. Thank you you're welcome. Thank you and so fan. Always have been my husband's a mets fan. He always has been and you know. Yes. we're resilient that's the word according to jerry seinfeld. You're not. I know exactly right. We've we've seen ups and downs. I'm a huge aaron. Boone fan I still say we should have traded sanchez and kept real mind. But that's another story but anyway you know everything happens in cycles. I you know they're good call patients which nobody these days and just you know they're gonna hit their stride eventually. Hopefully sooner or later you know it would be nice. The nice phone. Call this very nice practice goal or reasonable phone. Call that. That's very nice diane. So yeah well you know say what do you want us to send a message to seinfeld or anything on your behalf. Well please let him know that we're gonna get through this and we still have more world series rings that's true that's for sure thanks dive yet. And that's that's the thing that is not going to change. We're not gonna arguing about that talk about those things. Got the hammer like back in time to bring that out. Nineteen eighty-six for crying sixty nine. The amazing mets. Yeah well when. I reach out to a seinfeld. Diane i will indeed bring up your point as well because i love reach out and explain to him the story that he was dying to know because he was dying tonight story. Joey what's happening. Hey what's going boys was happening. Joey what's going on. Come on pull any joey. It's i don't know what else doing over there. But it's quite in whitestone. What's up giant. You got it's glenn. It's not joe bora. Here's the issue. I got big issues with you. Bring on Glen joe whatever the hell you name is a season i understand it for you to come on and openness show and defend brian cashman for what's gone on at what's going on a pathetic. Good that he's done. But you cannot sit here and defend. Brian cashman when he brings in the likes of k. Bruce chris carter lyle over bay. Brian roberts on and it's more than overlays the good in more than the good. He bought one either for georgia. Oh nine he has sick michael team in the two thousand he won with. Are you kidding me. Glen glide over bed i mean how long have you been sitting on our i mean for every one of those we can give you the ones that boomer brought up with. It's the document or shallow or void last four years. Yeah i mean going back the and by the way you know brian cashman. Also i don't know maybe a mistake. You may not be a mistake. It all depends on how the aforementioned free agent turns out or the trade turns out stanton tarot. That's a bad one. I'm sorry it is but what about garrett cole. The yankee fan wanted garrick klay got him. And that's great. Remember they wanted cease about the he got him. He was very good right. Aj brunette was terrible. Jacoby ellsbury was terrible is that he brings in didi gregorius in trade. How was very good. I mean we can go back and forth look labor more as a role chapman situation that was pulled off very well worked out well. Glaciers slipped here the last year. How man you're on the job that long as the yankees general manager you can have a bunch of good moves and a bunch of bad moves. I still say it's about their starting pitching staff that to me because they heading well and we all know. It's going to end up coming sooner on the regular season but in the postseason they panthers struggle. They know that in the yeah but do they because they don't change anything. You take a team. That would win one hundred games every year. But you have to win. You're the yankees you have to win championships. You know that. And they haven't won enough they haven't i mean the last time that we saw them win was over a decade ago. And when you're that team and you've had that much success in your winning that many games and you're not winning the postseason. The fans are going to have a problem with all right so as they should. I always say you wanna fire ambon. Some fans do some fans. Wanna get rid of brian cashman. Who are the replacements. Gimme gimme the replacement. Say you want. Catch say get rid of this guy and then not have a replacement in mind. Sure i understand. And they're not gonna fire earned bone in the middle of the season. You know depending on how this goes. I don't know of catherine's future is in doubt at the end of the year. I'm not so sure by the way when all these changes used to be made it was because they had an impetuous owner who was a maniac And you know he won back to the well of billy martin. How many times. Yeah i mean and and how crazy all that was so that has not who the yankees are anymore. They are not that impetuous owner you know but they will go out and get the top guy if they get them and when they got stanton he was thought to be the top guy. Coming off an mvp. When they got gary cole. He was the top guy on the on the list. Did they miss out on a manny. Machado they miss out on a few other guys. They miss out on. Trevor bauer. i you know who knows. I mean after a while they have to three hundred million dollar players in our team now and maybe more if guys start paying now aaron judge and another. Mvp season. then you talk about another guy in the world of sports or has to be young cheap talent that is actually out kicking their contracts and for the most part the yankees have had that they've had young guys said about kicked their contracts and that's one of the reasons why they've won now all this all these great young players if they don't know hopefully they'll start hitting in are going to end up getting to that point where you're going to have to make a decision as to whether or not you want pam each the morning show with boomer esiason and greg boomer and geo.

4/20/21 - Hour 2 - Swinging Sayville, Taking Cashman To Task, An Update, More From Seinfeld, Boomer's Big Decision And Weed Smoking

"The nec dropped. It'll play it just doesn't matter it just doesn't matter we keep saying it's about the nets and the yankees for the nets durant not play. Tonight hardens not playing tonight. Kyri matter kyri might be around. He might not be around. It just doesn't matter it. Just the the yankee start out five and ten but it's one hundred and sixty two game season and five games under five hundred figure it out. It just doesn't matter but when does it. when does it matter when they're eliminated from postseason while well. We all know that the nets are going to make it to the postseason. So that's when it matters for them and that's when they'll be healthy all the guys miraculously show up above. Hopefully all the guys show up for all the games personal problems that hit during the playoffs. But that's one of matters for them and what matters for the yankees is when we get into june and july. The dog days of summer start and where they are at that time and then the second half of the season and whether or not brian cashman going to get severino back. But whether or not. Brian cashman adds so the team moose. Some pieces around and believe you believe you me. I say this. He's as active as anybody in baseball and he will be active again. He's already been active. He's already brought in a door and he did that because he knew we had a problem at first base. That's right and he acted on it really quickly. And then jay. Bruce retired now. Was that a jay. Bruce was out of position. He basically the team out of the out of training camp. Simply because luke boyd got hurt. Yeah now i understand. But i do think that there are things that are going on now that you can project into the future and say these aren't great signs. I mean it's not like it totally doesn't matter does now the question about whether horton kyri durant can play with one. Another in the postseason. We all agree with to healthy. It'll be fine. They're going to be fine right all right so remember the story about the swingers. The swinger rumor in my new town. Yes but it's not as count. It's the rumors out of swinger. Great jack cohn is from. Yeah well it's not you didn't know it 'cause not true. Well now we found out. It's not true. Well maybe you're not a participant. It's just not true but talked me and ten years. Yeah hasn't been there long enough. Yeah you've just got the every neighbor comes up. It says they've never heard that before they veges what happens. I don't know anything about it for a long time. One guy even said to me. Hey i consider me and my wife good looking people and we've never been proposition to think about. What are they looking for. Sure yeah out started. Do they know about the signs to put out there so they can attract the groups. They had never heard that before but i drive guise house every day and he is not put up either. Read on around deck chairs or the pineapple door knocker which apparently are the two signs that you are a swinging household. That's what we here. Swinging household people read the swinging house. Are they swingers. Probably you have young children and thinking that you're going to be swinging with young young child era with with a three year old yet not yet. You're you're still probably years way. It's all about -freshing up right over to grandma's tonight we're having a neighbors over for some sex is probably not going to happen right. Yeah so anyway. I told you that. I got a pineapple door. Knocker in the mail just showed up at the door so that was a little freaky to me and the man who sent that door. Knocker allegedly is on the line. Right now chris in lake grove. What's up chris. When you hear we could hear you. What's going on in received it. Twenty story the wiki move in I actually my offices around the block from your new home. And i happened to be walking my toddler that friday and you came out to greet other contractors something. I didn't want to bother you. So i sent an actual real housewarming gift And then three days later since boomer kept talking about the swingers and the pineapple door knockers. I figured i'd send one is again against both reset with a gift card but unfortunately et c. didn't include that so I thought it was hilarious yesterday. Walked away from the show for ten minutes. And i was talking to a friend of mine. Who's like oh yeah. Did you hear somebody sent geel. Pineapple had actually recorded the show. So i had to go back on tv or last night. I watch it over and over. I was just in tears laughing. Well thanks kris allen. I said i wanted to call him this morning. But the actual gift should be arrive in the sample. Got me something else to man on. I feel i'm humbled. It's very nice but you'd have to do any of that being a social worker working through the pandemic you guys got the smile on my face. It's the least. I can do appreciate that chris. You know and this is how it all starts. This is how this this guy reaches out said you some gifts next thing you now boom having beers weapon alot trying to get through to the show for years even when it was you and craig doctor did. We'd take i would have spent a long time ago. I appreciate that chris. that's great. that's awesome so chris. If you heard about that and save a little. I never heard about it at all but since you guys started talking about it every every time of driving around any because i read adirondack chance telling you. Hey well chris next time you're in the neighborhood Stop and say hello right. We'll do take care of your wife with you. No no no. No no. don't do that. I don't know we're okay. I'll come on when i swing of what is going on nothing. There's no sweet stuff going on no way. There must be. What do you mean. There must be randomly. Come from this guy said that he heard the show when he sent it as a gag while that now that chris didn't climb that there was but there are other people that climb that there was but obviously stuff. That's going on with you right now. Unbelievable strangers stuff like the biggest thing that it saves crickets. No i it's been everybody's been nice. That's all. I got a swinging. Everybody's been very nice. I told you. I think i underestimated the neighborhood chatter chatter. Now i mean you've been on this show far longer than me so your exposure to the audiences is greater. You made a move to bradley beach do you. Was it similar to this. In the way that many people would come up to you and many people would talk to you and welcome to the neighborhood. Yes it was very welcoming very nice. Yeah we also highlighted the bradley beach facebook page right and how active you are on that and you know how you get people involved in fighting crime down there in bradley beach yeah i i recently started trouble on their again which i thought i was doing a good thing but people took it as a bad thing really. Yeah i noticed as i was walking my dog that A lot of the car inspection stickers were outdated on the cars all all i did was said kid i said just a heads up i said i i know we forgot doing the pandemic but a lot of your cars are wu narc. They are people took it. Like i was telling the police to go find these cars. Which wasn't what you're doing now since i had. I had a handful of people that really appreciate it said. Oh my gosh. I completely forgot other people. Were under the assumption that there was no problem since the pandemic get your car inspected not true so i thought i was doing everybody a favor. People took it as i was a douche man meduse. Did anybody say a great. Now i gotta take it like go back to the thread and say no you know all right. Those people were not happy. If you think there's somebody and save l. That goes around and looks at the car inspection stickers. No of course not anywhere does why are you looking at in. I guess thicker. I don't know why. When i'm walking i look at it and i just so many people were like two years old. I'm like what's going on here. Maybe these people forgot is one of the reasons why the raising tolls all over the place because people aren't paying their inspections no one's getting their cars right also the chicken tire pressure. You know you're too far from the curb. Donges popping hoods seeing the oil level. Pulling out the dipstick catalytic come on. I really thought when. I noticed that i make a mental note because this is going to help some people out. That's the way i look at. It was helping people out so now do you know. Is there a safe stable facebook page. I don't know facebook. i'll take those these things. He's all about the community involvement. I totally eliminated facebook from really. Yeah i'm just slowly getting back into twitter slowly. Jeez gb and merrick gb. What's happening. Hey boys doing what's going on. Listen i want wanna bring everybody down to reality here for a second. Okay okay First of all this slide that the yankees are on. This has nothing to do with cashman. I know we gotta bring some of these knucklehead yankee fans that don't understand that nothing to do a cashman this has to do with the players stepping up and starting to get into a groove and start to really hit. Start really feeling you. Cashman has done everything he can Be and does every year before to to get his what players. He could get at the best price at the best time and he always succeeds with that. Yeah he's been there for a million years which we love. And i hope he's differ another million but you know this is not lame cashman. He's bringing in players that need to produce he really is so this this whole perception of what's all like you know go crazy and blame cash and and that's it if you go is getting. Is he going to leave at the end. That's that's insane. no. I don't know. I i said i said if it depends. Let's say this year just hypothetically we do but hypothetically this is a very disappointing year for the yankees. That will be a question for the first time ever i think. Gb would would be. Maybe they go in a different direction if it ended up being a very disappointing to see that. I'm i just. Don't see that. I think there brian cashman is solidly within the steinbrenner family. The front office of the yankees. A guy that's run the baseball operations and they do. They have brought up some of their own players. That have either been hurt. Or you know have shown flashes of brilliance develop some of his own parts and not just that he's always going out and bringing in free agent so i i know the yankee fans upset. It's kind of fun being in the middle of all this but Eventually it's going to turn around eventually. Just mark my words on this day that you know maybe maybe in two months from now we're talking about the yankees fighting for first place each morning show with boomer esiason and greg g. analogy boomer and geo. Yeah i mean this. This happens in the shadows. Apparently so we just don't know. But if i come across i'll be honest if i do get approached. I will be honest. If i see the red at rhonda chairs but i'm telling you right now. This is this is all rumor. There's no substance. They're my neighbors have been great the been absolutely great daddy. O swinging. evan. Think with the nets game on the background. He gave it to me. And i i gotta tell you. That's fantastic the only way you can get aroused to. He puts on the nets game in the background. That's that's his fluffer. oh boy. Hey jerry got enough date for brought to you. By flagging anthem. Spring clothing collection visit flag and anthem dot com. Look at me look sexy. I am look at my body. I've never said that once yankees gm. Brian cashman with the media on monday. We know this team has not played. Well they're five and ten. They've lost five straight over the weekend embarrassing against the raise embarrassing. Friday night to with the baseball is being thrown on the field and so he was asked about that incident end. The team was wondering what your reaction was to sing dance through baseball's on field. And do you believe this frustration building up for years. Now i know. I don't think. I don't see a correlation to that terrible game that we played. That's part one part two he gets to the actual ball throwing or most if somebody wants to throw something on the field and they better expect to be arrested There's no place in any Scenario like that and then the final part of his answer. It was a very long answer. was about fans being unhappy with the team the last few years. That doesn't really make sense to me. Um how how a team. That odyssey is making the playoffs in the year in year out basis in a legitimate contender for world championship title. Out on the hell. That question is relevant or just doesn't doesn't make sense somehow surprised with his answer. The question is irrelevant. Take that media is relevant. Of course it is yes. I don't know like he's a little bit. Annoyed sensitive agrees. Yeah i would agree. Well the other thing too is corey. Kluber hasn't worked out. No and that's a big one is he's supposed to be your your second starter and that's a big one. Aaron hicks is not playing. Well that's a big one. You know jay. Bruce was a was a band aid. That didn't they just finally rip off. I'll make this little boy big one who is playing. Well gee or shell. That's a good question who is playing well the bill. The bullpens been okay when there's played well when he's plan and he was a guy that nobody wanted back out. Don't bring him back nokia. Yeah that's about it. Let's yes that is it does say he says they'll be fired. Disappointing clearly at Where we currently stand but we know better days are ahead and he made it very clear. It's not all on the manager. We're all in the same boat with performance anywhere you know. Our record is reflexive relevant reflective of of our organization obviously errands a piece of that As as an eye so yup taken response a peace as- what he's a piece of that tall. Maybe there's swingers. What who knows very possible can't say with one hundred percents so two game series opens with the braves tonight. The braves are seven nine. The yankees five and ten. Tyrone and charlie morton are the starters pregame coverage on the fan after carton and roberts right at five fifty five and then we will shift over to the nets and the yankee game will be on sports radio sixty six. Wfan am. Mets are in chicago to the cubs tonight cubs out to a six to nine. Start the a medicine first place in the nfl east and one guy that simply lows. This team is comedian. Jerry seinfeld you guys played the stuff with gio a little while ago. Here was seinfeld with summer's on the fan. You bring on a guy. Like mr endure and dom smith who we already had an an stroman. We already had an all of a sudden you see the swirling smile culture. This is a powerful powerful element and the chemistry of winning now the culture you yeah and i would say jerry seinfeld's ball i don't think so. Maybe maybe he was probably like allie probably had a little league season where he went hitless alley. That's right you had that little league season where you went hitless. Actually he was thirteen boomer. He wasn't seven. Listen sometimes you hit the ball. Well is just someone. They're all season. Or maybe you don't hit the ball at all. No i definitely hit the ball. It just you know. They say hit him where they ain't yeah. Unfortunately every time. I hit him it was quite the opposite. Unfortunately we don't play softball anymore but you know you were coming off your best see. I thought you were coming out of your bets. Best season ever i agree. How'd you think this interview went overall al with jerry. Seinfeld and steve. So i listened to it on my right in today. Listened on the podcasts. I felt awkward at times. Because the steve. I feel awkward person and he's really awkward. Because you know awkward. I know awkward. And i was in my car by myself in the dark and i felt uncomfortable times. Was it because of that. Whole thing that the hash out about their falling out legend falling out. Yes and that. And i think sometimes steve just follow up question that that didn't have to do with jerry's previous answer would just be like a random question asked. What was the falling out between the two of those was. Because steve reached out to jared he gets somebody else's number or something get larry david's email. But i understand jerry protecting that right well. Jerry said he had forgotten. That stephen larry had gotten together before and he just thought that steve was reaching out saying. Hey can you make the contact between larry david. If he had remembered that they had a previous interview he might have given up the email and he also said he didn't remember even sending that response of. That's not what friends do responding to jerry right. But i will also say this because every now and then down again i will get asked for. Somebody's contact info. Before i give out that contact gimpo. I will contact that other person and i'll say hey. So-and-so al dukes a demery al dukes once your contact impose it. Okay if i give it to him. No okay generally know when it comes to al. But but i have to then kind of stick up for allan the actual. He's a good guys dude. He's just you know making sure that we have your number of what we call you. You're ready and available. That's yeah so where i got uncomfortable is when you knew this was a private interaction. Email interaction between jerry and steve. And then steve said i hadn't brought it up on the air until the morning show talked about it on the air. And then jerry said we'll how did they find out that's when i was like because then jerry's implying you're running your mouth about private. Email interactions around the office. That's when i felt uncomfortable. And then then. Stephen turned and i must have told the producer about how was heard from this exchange in that producer. Probably told somebody but he didn't name anybody any name specifically but we think we know who it is. So who's league. There's a lot of leaks around this place. That's why that's why you are the king of scuttle scuttlebutt around here it's like you get everything all comes to you. I'm the the the reservoir. Get all of these. And i'm telling you like it never would come the craig and craig would be digging for it all over the place. But nobody would ever come to him with scott and i think it's because he was an outsider. Yeah as an outsider and he also would give up the person's name not thinking that it was a problem. The deal keeps things quiet. Like he doesn't say so and so told me he'll just say he heard it from that's true. Never get no scuttle but nobody comes to me to tell me scuttle but you're boomer though that's not true. I was an outsider. What i wanna know why. I've i've been here since ninety three but for some reason as an outsider. People look you and they're not gonna come and bring you scott. You came in here at the top of the food chain. If you come in at a lower part work your way up. it's different. yeah. I understand it. That's why you know geos homegrown right you do get high level scuttle butto you do. Yeah that's true you get you get like the the bosses come and tell you stuff mean scuttle but is not the same as no matter. The street's got up. it's more impactful. Sure i'll give you example small example. You knew that the company name was changing before all of us. You knew that okay. That was one that's true. I was high level scuttle. But i had no idea about that has very high level. Yeah i mean like the school. But i get is like when mcmonagle gets two shifts in a row you know that's like my skull getting scuttle butt or what producer hates what host. Yeah i don't get that you get. I know that stuff is so much more interesting stuff that i get. You get win. You win this craig coming back. Y- those things right. Yeah for everybody else right. That's the yeah when when the architect came back you that's the high level scuttle but you're and you'll know who the new pda's before anybody else. I won't have that you'll have. I'll have everybody's reaction to that new which is bright board. Yeah i know really yeah stocks. She socks i'm and just hear it. You know it's gonna ap apparently there's a favourite by the way this is their favourite timeframe. June is a favourite. The name i had mentioned to you. I could not get any and i tried every which i watched him try. Yeah oh you just heard. There is a favourite. You don't have a name. i don't have a name. I know the name. But i'm not kentucky i watch you try to get the name yesterday and you already knew the name. Yeah but i couldn't. I couldn't have also knew the name. But now i just did so as the name you have a name i would know. Yes is the name you have boomer unnamed people would know. I have no idea who knows homer didn't know got no clue. No clue journal pd. I just thought he was a guy that was a pain in the ass. All right so you know the name you're gonna have to tell me i can't tell you that. Oh not we just established doesn't say anything. I'm not gonna give the strategies of fault. Yeah just you gotta tell me and then it'll be fine. I won't say anything about it. I'll tell anybody. I don't tell anybody i'm going to tell you guys to just tell really. Yeah yeah yeah remember when you said that The architect was coming back. We never said a word about tight-lipped not a word. I felt like sharing that with you. Because i knew that was important and i know that you guys all had relationship and that would be nice for you and be a feel good story on a feel good friday going into the weekend. I'll have to worry anybody slipping up. Yeah we'll just tell us friday then. Maybe i'll tell you friday. You gotta tell us now all right anyway. Yeah jerry anything Anything i'll just tell you quickly so you got the nets pelicans tonight that's going to be on. Fm wanna one nine The fan later tonight. That game is going to start. I guess coverage seven fifteen for that. No nick lacks reggie. Perry placement league's health and safety protocols and kevin durant been ruled out already as well with a contusion knicks gopher. A seventh straight win tonight. They take on the hornets Good game in terms of the playoff race and the knicks now tied with the celtics fifth because boston lost chicago last night. The warriors beat the seventy sixers. So that helps out the nets a little bit steph. Curry had forty nine. Now rangers islanders at the coliseum. Tonight the devil's gate. In pittsburgh and alex smith at announced his retirement each morning show with boomer esiason and greg g. analogy boomer and geo arranger him that i see i would Sitting is going to be upset with. She's not not going to go to. Oh she i thought she was. She's not gone tonight so she was yelling at me yesterday. That bike dough without her. She's upset about it. I'm like why would you be upset about it. We root for different teams. Yes so. I didn't know that part of it see. I thought that everybody was going. And you guys can have a nice night and we fawn and you guys understand they allegiances and everything else right but if you're going to go to the game and then she's not going and she's not gonna be happy about you being. I don't sit with anybody. We could sit together and i'm like why. Why wouldn't you though. I mean coming but what i mean like doesn't make any sense a similar many years now. How many years. I took her to ranger games. I know but things you look what happened and look what happened. And you understand deep down you understand.

Yeah let's go to chris in port jeff station. What's up chris. Hey what's going on fellas. What's going on with you what's happening. Hey so I called in because Yesterday's show you guys. Were talking about all the weeds. Smells on the la. Yeah so Listen i've been smoking for the last ten years and my job got me going up and down the ally all day long and i'm i'm one of those guys that smoking. We should be doing that. Why the hell are you doing that. You're putting everybody else's non-dangerous. Don't you feel anyway. Let me make a point. Listen all right so when people that smoke cigarettes if you're not a cigarette smoker you take a drag of a cigarette and that head rush hits real hard when you've been smoking cigarettes for a long time you you don't feel anything so me as a smoker for the last ten years it doesn't affect my ability drive at all really really yes. But it doesn't change anything in your. Then why are you doing. This is a bad habit. Why do people smoke cigarettes. And having their addicted to it. You know i mean we not addictive but it's just make things well it also as a gateway but you do with your life. But if i have run into you and your high and we're on the elliott going to punch you right in the face. Come on telling you right now. Vied i always think about like get into an accident because some d. bag d. bag is either texting or weeding or drinking. I'm going to get out of my truck. And i'm going to house them. Yeah no of course. The things would be worse than after that because then they'd be sold and all everything else austin. Yeah the people will be filming that thing and then porn knocks out going south coast. You ever go up saito's on the sang the total a lot since i moved. Yes act coach sagged the coasts sacco. That he got me. say yes. it's a parkway Right so north east islip on the southern state parkway the heckscher spur And i'm getting up. The saito's sagged. echoes. I call it the saga toast. You would be wrong so anyway. Whatever i'm going up there and there's a car that's like driving five miles an hour in the merge lane like coming off of the sunrise getting on the saddest right and you call it see. I could see this person. I can tell that it was a woman. Okay looking at our phone. Has we're getting onto this emerge line. That's supposed to be fifty five miles an hour. I just happened her in the back. You know hey thumbing. Let's go sure. I'll do that but yeah well then you give the dirty look as you go passed and you're like what are you doing what i do. I do. what the f. arm that's my. That's my move by. See somebody doing something like roll down the window. And i give them one of these. I'd just hand out like eighty two. Well it's obviously the it'd be this hand what are we doing. It's one of the put. The god damn phone down. Yeah richie in valley stream what's happening. Hey what's up guys. I'm an insurance going a lot of cars in the body shop. Some of these costs when you get into that you can't you can't even breathe the weed smell so these are caused like a week though and the body shop. It's unbelievable how did that your job it get. I just look at the caught but It just can't even go inside the car so bad but yeah it's like when somebody's smoking cigarettes in their car and it stinks. I just can't believe there was a time when i was a kid that there was smoking and nonsmoking sections in restaurants and you can even smoke on an airplane. But that's the thing. I used to get on an airplane. Hillary smokers so i would sit in like if i was sitting at first class. You always tried to get the last role in first class. And tell the people. But i'm not a smoker and i do not want smokers next to me. So what is the thing. Now that we're gonna look at fifteen twenty years from now and say. I cannot believe that we were doing that. Because there's always something because back then it was like all right smoking. Non nonsmoking police or smoking or the non-smoking sign is now up. Smoking sign off. You're allowed to smoke now and you think back then go is the most asinine crazy thing i could ever think of in my life that you be on an airplane and people smoke cigarettes in their blows my mind of flying tube so what. What is the thing now. Do you think. Sometimes i think meeting. I think that the amount of meat that we eat as a society. I feel like twenty years from now. I cannot believe that we ate so much meat. That's something that i am. Meter eat. Eat meat a lot i do. I'm a meat guy could be a can't believe we used to use gasoline in cars could be could be that too. Yeah you stopped at a gas station. You filled up your tank. That's crazy with liquid that put ten million people out of work perfect. Well no well. We re educated than the bill. Batteries become nuclear scientists. The people work for the tobacco industry as well right. I mean stolen stolen industry as but it's not as thriving much as i mean when you think about. How stupid is that the tobacco industry. Yeah of course. Of course i know. I mean all all of the vice industries and we look we re gambling that you know. So what kind of tell you that is true you know. Could you believe that back in. Two thousand seven. Roger goodell's all. There's no way we're ever going to get mouth gambling. And we are in two thousand and twenty one and now now we're the draft is brought to you by draft kings.

LeMahieu Negotiations, Cashmans Pitching Plan, Tomoyuki Sugano Scouting Report

"They leaned in and said something to freddie. Don't let them change you keep working on. What makes you different. And what makes you special. It was a great advice. Bud caused me some problems. What could change freddy adu. Soccer is going to explode. And it's going to be around this kid the beatles where we win it was the freddie show and with that came the expectation and with that came the pressure. New episodes of american prodigy dropped tuesdays from blue wire. Podcasts breakdown all aspects of yankee baseball. This is the bronx pinstripe show with your host angel. Rotundi and scott ryan. Let's go what's up everyone. Welcome to the bronx pinstripe. Show episode five hundred in two brought to you by indeed dot com bet online dot. ag and scott. Let's start with the fact that it's not signed in super worried. Brian cashman was talking about it. Arab boone's talked about it. Oh we want dj. Hugh to be a yankee start number one priority. He needs to be back with the yankees. What is your mother. Always say to you scott. Actions speak louder than words. Hey yankees brian cashman. Actions speak louder than words. Put the contract in front of him. Get him to sign on the dotted line. Until then i don't want to hear your bullshit. He's not signed getting worried he's going to go to the blue jays or something. Well that's the problem. Is that the contracts that are putting in front of him is not one. That's going to get signed. And they're off by what the reports are twenty five million bucks twenty five million dollars. Plenty cash five million. How much money do we waste jacoby ellsbury. How much money did we pay. Three point to act. How much money did we spend on. Kfi egawa look at the end of the day. This guy is the most beautiful picture perfect baseball player that you can imagine in today's game for especially inserted into the lineup that we currently have you sign this racially important to this team insanely important and i don't wanna hear i know we'll talk about the fact the comments that have come up about kleber being a better second baseman. Nah i doesn't. It should not come into play at all where we're glaciers best position has nothing to do with dj. Lemay you back question that it could come into play with some other things around shortstop okay but then you have to actually have those things happen and guess what much further towards much further away. This this is something that is right in front of you you. It's a known quantity. You know what this guy is. He's nails in the playoffs. He's good all throughout the regular season he plays. He comes back from injuries. Crazy fast and on a timetable that he sets. The guy is exactly what this team absolutely need. So if they let him walk away over a an extra year and twenty to twenty five million dollars. It's going to drive me insane. So you know the yankees. Do this thing cashman. Does this thing with free agents. That he wants is he says go out shop self come back to us. Tell us what the price is and we will beat it or not beat it. Basically yourself guy. He's playing with guys i know. And it bit him in the ass with Douse kaikal bright. Red kaikal cashman. Essentially we learn cashman told cockles agent. Come back to us with whatever the deal is. We'll see if we wanna beat at any never did he just signed in atlanta. That's a smaller scale. Maybe not a huge deal. Kyko probably wasn't gonna make different. I also think it was a different scenario very different scenario because but if kaikal very will may not have signed even if they did beat it so there were there were there were talks. That didn't even want to come here anyway. So difference if cash if cashman has people truly believe digital may he was not going to get one hundred million dollars in the free agent market. They say to him. We think you're worth four years and seventy five million which is a much that that is eighteen. Point seven five million Aav and he's asking for five at one hundred twenty million av. Av is basically the same just the the extra year right. But i if they don't think he's gonna get five years on the market because of his age they are telling him go do it go get it and if you get it we will give it to you. But if you're not gonna get it. We're not going to give it to you. That's a complete if that is an actual strategy and if that's actually a conversation it's such bullshit conversation and such a dumb strategy because now you're like you know what we love you for four years. Don't think you don't think i want you for the fifth year. Go see if someone else wants you for five years and then you can come back and we'll tell you if we want you for that fifth year or not it stood you rather would you signing a motion i've Would you rather sign lemay. Who for four or five. If you put yourself and brian cashman shoes rather signed lemay you then not saiga mayhew battle cats where i am but if you're paying for a year based on what possibly is is on the market. I'm doing it because i am doing. Is i'm securing the asset okay. I agree with that because they signed him for four. But but that's a moot point to me because securing the asset it's between securing the asset or not securing the and we're talking about a machine here not a person it's an asset. It's a guy that comes in and just does the job. You're either securing it or you're not securing it and to me. What does that to one point. Five million dollars av twenty million dollars ish twenty five million dollars over five years whatever that whatever it. It doesn't work out the math. The math is not workout by the way But whatever the math is it doesn't matter you just do it. You do it you do it. But but govan season financially strapped times har we might have fans in the stands of spring training. We might not have fans in the stands for opening day or maybe even the first couple of months of the season might be reduced capacity. Played for that stu- i'm renters are are struggling a little bit. It's the fact that we're having this conversation over one year at twenty million dollars for the mvp. The team is lunacy. It really is. It really is because also the other thing about him is that he's the type of guy over most that will probably translate for five years. She's not going to be. Probably you know the same guy that he is but his game will will age and probably age a lot better than the majority of guys out there who were either. Swinger mr homerun. He's an interesting player from the from a statistical standpoint because he's been much better with the yankees then he was in colorado not that he was batting colorado but he was. He was much closer to average in colorado. And he's been he went to colorado. Yes i know but he also had two below league average seasons in colorado so so he so when you average out his five years in colorado. I think it was five years. It was slightly above above average. But with the yankees. He's been an mvp candidate. Two straight years. I believe he's going to continue that elite play for the next couple of seasons. I think baseball has changed so much in the last couple of years and and lemay hugh style of play like we talked about is so valuable in today's game that the things that he does are so rare the things that he does not everyone can do. Remember the fact. No team has shifted on the may. Houston's two thousand sixteen that's like unheard of right that's unheard of in today's game so he's hitting grumball's to the second base hole basis or he's hitting ground balls up the middle base hits those aren't base hits for other people. Because you've got you've got central. You gotta shortstop planted his ass rate directly up the middle. So you hit a missile up the middle every every season in baseball up until the last couple of years. That's no longer basically. It's just a ground ball out the other thing. If i may that. That doesn't get set. All the time is this guy has the ability to play multiple positions in the field. You as as he's getting older if needed you could slide him over to third base. You could sign him over to first base you. So he's got three of the four positions on the infield that he's got the ability to play at a high level. It's not like he's a slouch the at any of the position. So not only. Do you have a guy that if he's losing range which if i'm looking at the way he's going to age i could certainly see him Losing range at second base that that is probably something that will happen given his his body. Type you know. He's not the best athlete in the world. He's got he does amazing for what he's got and he's a bigger guy i could see him playing third base. I could see him going over the first base and he does both of them. Well so not only are you. You're getting the guy who is an absolute constant in your lineup for four to five years. But you're also getting a guy defensively. Who has the flexibility to move round and give your team whatever needs in that particular stop. Another player from coming in really is the point. So it's it's it's a no brainer. It's always been a no brainer. And i just want to get the deal done because everything you hear. Is you have two parties. That wanna get a deal done so get the goddamn deal done yet. So we're specifically talking about the interview. That brian cashman did with meredith on. Yes and after the question about who that was the number one question because obviously the topic of of salary and money came up. Emeritus ask them how handcuffed financially are the yankees after the covid season and cashman dodged the question and basically said we will be the number one payroll regardless of what happens. That doesn't answer the question. I don't like that answer. Because that's basically him saying you were you and your jettison that doesn't bother you because what he's basically saying is going to be the highest spending team no matter what whether we sign the mayhew or not so see we spend money. That doesn't answer the question. No it doesn't because he's trying to deflect the question he's like yeah we're going to spend it. I'm just not going to tell you where. I'm spending it so it may be in the place that you absolutely want me to spend. It is not going to tell you that. Nor am i gonna lead onto it or it might be on some new nerds. It's my so those nerds needs some promotions after that genius decision to have debbie garcia opening game. Two of the lds. Whoever came up with that crack idea needs to get promoted senior nerd senior nerd. Look i. I don't like the the indecision here with lemay who i. I want them to be decisive. And just make this move a. And i understand that. That's not good business when you're looking at a market a free market for a player to go there because these contracts that are coming back that we're seeing or low they're low. There's no doubt. Oh my god like david doll contract. Salaries yellow three million and change for his six year. Old outfielder who's like a good player. Where does that leave. Cartner free to pay the yankees to play. Because they've already paid him as by out of two million dollars. So brett gardner needs to show up and lace up for free next season. I mean when you look at the value of that contract you have pretty much. That's that's kinda words from a fifty dollars stipend so you can go to chipotle. So if they're looking at the free market and what's happening out there and and playing russian roulette because that's kind of what they're doing right now. All it takes is one team to come in with a contract. That's that's a little bit bigger. That makes me feel good. Because i could see. Dj's feelings being hurt. I could see that. I can see him doing that. Though because the blue jays playoff slash share their an incoming young team. They need some veteran leadership. Lemay you actually would probably fit in really well on that team. I know i know he fit in very well on that team. I don't like it at all. That's i could see the blue jays. Absolutely giving him a magic bullet contract to come in as the glue to that to that a young team and bringing it all together with the veteran experience and yes i think he makes a very big difference on that team so yeah i could see them having him i know. He's extremely valuable on their board They they definitely want him. They've they've made that very clear and to me. That's courting dj. I think if there's another team involved they almost have to be like. Hey we we want you badly. We absolutely want you and guess what players. Listen to that crap. They do they want to be wanted. You don't dj on still talks money still money still talks with digital you also feels like a guy that wants the loyalty back if you're not giving it to him back if you're not reciprocating the same feelings the same type of devotion that he has. He's gone now. He deletes you his computer brain and moves on. Yes or no longer. You are no longer his his In his life whiteout reprogram. Yeah so. I think that the yankees are playing with fire right now and they need to you kind of alluded to the glider. The kleiber got the gleyber torres. Comments that cashman made and he he said i think he's a better second baseman and shortstop talking about glacier long-term and he also said he didn't believe glacier came into into the summer camp in shape and that negatively affect his season while shot shaq labor there. I think it's a little shot being came in. We know you're you're the young kid and you got the shortstop job. We chose to move on from didi to give you the shortstop job. That doesn't mean you can come in a little doughy to summer camp. You got to come in ready to go. let me tell you what deejay. Dj didi gregorius. After looking at some of these contracts. I feel bad for demand. He tested the market. Didn't get what he wanted. Signed the one year deal as a as a show as a as a prove me contract essentially as a as a gap year really and then covert happens and now everybody's getting one fifth of their contract value so he's at the number that he might sign for. He's becoming more appealing. He also might have to play for free him. Him and brett gardner many to play for free. But i mean so. That's the other side of things that there are going to be some bargains out there. I just as a new as a as a new yankees fan understanding what this talent level is and how young it is and how were controlled with arbitration right. Now we're in a really good spot so they need to stop around. That's it they need this. Yeah and just because glacier might be a better second baseman long-term he still only twenty four years old so you can sign the mayhew for five years and still move gleyber to second base full time in in four years and then that means the fifth year on. Dj's contract is sort of playing multiple positions may be more first base like you said maybe even some d. h. Because maybe you'll still hit. So i still think you can have labor as a long-term second baseman if you sign the mayhew well and also the twenty twenty four is young you get to twenty six twenty seven twenty eight. Those are peak physical years for for a professional athlete. So there's there's absolutely nothing saying that labour can't improve his defense either. He's twenty four years old like you said. That's that's a guy that can come in who has natural shortstop abilities. As they say has played shortstop his entire career went and played second basement. Our second base for you know for the yankees now. He's going back over. There's there's an. I do think that gleyber has the ability to improve. Because i think a lot of mistakes are fundamental mistakes. It's not like he's he doesn't have bad instincts. I think he's got good instincts. I think it's just you know rounding up some of the you know some of the areas that that just are needs. Tidying up needs cleaning needs. Kind of charring. What kind of shape do you think kashmir talking about like conditioning shape was it. Was it like he was overweight. Like what do you think it was that he was talking about with kleber. I just think that there was probably a very strange preparation leading up to the season and he could probably say the exact same thing for almost every player on the roster and when asked you answer and yeah he probably came in not as i in physical shape the workouts for these guys the time their workouts which i think they were trying. Some of these guys were trying to like time their workouts to get through the beginning of a season. Or whatever they just don't have the same repetition or same schedule that they would normally so everything's thrown off so you don't. You don't know what to expect when you get to that point because your preparation has been different right. It's been a different setup. So i i i don't really also different honestly right like you're used to having reps every day from march through june and then they basically sat on their ass for the most of that time. Yeah but back up if you back to calendar up and just you know pop. Spring training on top of the summer camp. It's still not the same preparation because you didn't know when things were going to start up again you couldn't go to the same places. Probably you just couldn't do a lot of the same thing so like i have done for a lot of twenty twenty and a lot of different players in whatever situation that i find it convenient to raise twenty twenty i will. I will conveniently erase his his conditioning. Walking into camp. This this This past year because it was weird so well that brings us standards for my memory. That brings us to gary sanchez. You're racing gary sanchez. Twenty twenty economy seems like the yankees are are trying to do that. Cash would said his expectations for gary have not changed the expects them to bounce back next year and he said this was kind of pissed me off he would have been on pace for a thirty home. Run season if it were a normal year. Really really cashman. At what cost. Are you going to have gary sanchez. At thirty home runs. You're going to keep hitting one. Eighteen one. Thirty three in the lineup. Just because he's going to hit thirty home runs on grooved fastballs over the course of one hundred and sixty two hundred sixty two games. I mean the swing and miss issue is is alarming with sanchez last year. And he's talking about pace for thirty home runs. I don't give a shit about those. Thirty home runs if you're hitting one twenty. Yeah the thirty home runs to for for Major league pitchers across the across baseball. Right now you see gary sanchez up. There with runners on probably not going to get that group fastball. That he's hitting you know to the moon. He's going to different pitches and that's where he was struggling. He was he was barreling up. What one out of five fastballs down the middle of the ninety five miles per hour congratulations. You're a professional baseball player. Stephen drew ca do that. Okay i it's like it's like when shack hits one out of five free throws it's like well you should yes. So there's there's gary sanchez tenor last week. I i had some some Not not a revelations but but some good insight. I think into the minds of what's happening back there and there's definitely frustration. There's no doubt you could. You could tell there's frustration because of probably like we are. They see the potential. They know the potential. But i mean ten or even mentioned it. The struggles of gary sanchez behind the at the plate. Offensively bled into his defensive problems. Definitely that he said that that there is a mental thing. Happening here with gary sanchez. Taking the taking one side of the the game the offense at the plate into the defense whether he's sulking or thinking about it or just i don't know what it is but there's something there mentally and and that's the pro. That's to me. The biggest problem this whole thing this guy needs to get this mindset in check and be able to compartmentalize the the different opportunities and whether he wins that opportunity or lose that opportunity within a game and get rid of it. You win at great move on. Forget about it but he doesn't do that and that's a problem. So the other thing with senator was talking about defensively that if that continues if the mental a mental fortitude if that continues to be lacking the good news from what i was saying was that as the season progressed. They saw improvements on on the comfort ability. You know how comfortable he was. Yeah i listened to that too. And i was like Didn't he get benched for hagey at the end of the year. Like what the heck are you talking about. Well i think the morris back on them a little bit there. I think it's more. I think it's more because he was talking about was the being comfortable in the in the new stance and things like that surly as a player in general but defensive on he started to see the improvements and like him getting to that point. What was alarming to me was that they were doing this on the fly basically and that and that he was gary sanchez. Didn't it didn't feel like you had the Like he was preparing enough and probably coded was affecting that because they weren't able to be in person which when you're doing when you're learning a new stance that's a big deal there. Zoom calls and you know you got ten analyzing Zoom footage urged video footage and then stimulating can picture picture like through a translator. To dairy over zilkha. I can picture the laptop camera. Just point destroyed gary's crotch like ten or doing this right. Am i doing this right. Like oh my god just a clown show but you know the the other thing that was that i did not know when when talking to him about this this one knee down method and i'm fascinated by new stuff like this one. It's you're seeing the data start to show that it's working across the league but it certainly does depend on the player and he was. he was definitely I was. I was very surprised right at the end of the interview. I was very surprised when he said to me when he was talking about hegi and i know we were talking about one down or not just definitely not one need down in a deep crouch but that's where he got to that one spot that one comfortable spot and that's the biggest thing on this on the the philosophy of this of this method is that you're staying in that one spot rather than transitioning to two different or three different places depending on the situation whether runners are on base. You know the the different situations that that happened within inning. And that's that's the keys getting good here so that you're comfortable always here and you can You can not only frame pitches because that is certainly of importance to them if not the highest importance but you can throw people out. You can do all the things that you need to do. And that's that's the key further guy like gary though what if it's more important for for him to just be comfortable the yankees don't need to try and change his stance or trying to make him into a player that he's not let him be the player he came up as which was a solid defensive catcher. Nothing crazy maybe. He's not going to be the best framer in the world but he has a nice arm he certainly going to let some pass balls go by. But he's going to be an absolute animal at the plate and he's going to be comfortable. Maybe that's more valuable to your team than turning him into this one knee down framing wizard behind the plate because it's clearly affecting other parts of his game and now he's no longer valuable at the plate. I agree and i think that that's and i hope that you know after learning about the different flexibilities of this system that if they identify that that they'll that they will make those adjustments and and make sure that he's a place where he's feeling good back there if it's not working for me if they don't see the if they're not seeing improvements beyond what they saw this year early in spring training even right now like going going into like dominican league. They should be looking at these. They're not seeing marked improvements for me on the defensive side. They need to go back to the drawing board and figure out where he is the most comfortable and yes take advantage of that because the bat absolutely is the value here. Yeah yeah yeah. They've tinkered with him a bunch. But doesn't this also tell you this is this is this proves my theory. I feel about the working relationship with garrett cole and gary sanchez. It wasn't there. I think a lot of these things that were affecting gary and yes. I'm speculating but i. You know i've watched every game of list. Talk to coaches watching with my is body language as well. I think that a lot of the things that are affecting what we just what we learned about that were definitely affecting his game. We're expecting the relationship between them on your one on your one. You've got to be on the same page for guy who's meticulous with his preparation and then you have another guy who's well maybe some days. Yeah maybe i don't know it just doesn't work. And that at the end of the day i think is why why he got. Because hagi them a servant he caused servant save. He's the ultimate team. Guy he just does what you what you need this as my pitcher you got it. I'm gonna do it as a pitcher. don't you love that. This can be applied to any any job anything in life. Really if you're not comfortable with what you're doing you cannot be a valuable service to other people. So of gary sanchez is not comfortable with what he's doing behind the plate. The one niece down if he's concentrating on on the one knee stance down an an improving that the course of the season. How's he going to be of added value to garrett cole. He's not he's not not possible. I i agree. And and that's that's exactly what i believe. We saw happen in real time. Yeah exactly what. I think we saw and i don't blame detriment to the team like again getting back to the the. Keep it simple stupid. Keep it simple with gary sanchez. Maybe that's what we need to do with gary sanchez. I'd probably 'cause he's he's not doing the other things i again. There needs to be marked improvement early. We talked about this about bringing him back. Of course they were gonna bring it back. It was a deal it was a it was an absolute bar to bring him back at the contract that they did so. There's no doubt when you see the possibilities of this player. Of course you bring him back on that deal. That said it's not going to be a season-long leash again. A campy just campy and especially now understanding where know higgins with with with coal and who knows. Maybe hagi takes another step. If you don't think that hagi right now understands that there's an opportunity for him to probably he didn't think was going to be there and he's working his ass off right now like he's doing rocky like he's he's in. He's in freezers pounding meat. He's running up mountains in russia. He he's like this. I got it. I have the trust of our ase. Who the hell knows what. Who's pitching behind him. I got the only guy that they care about. Let's go now by time. He just can't be a black hole in the lineup. Just be slightly better than he's been and he can still the job from gary. No problem haven't seen many many guitar videos at a have you because he put the qatar down the guitar slab. Add up slab of meat swinging that brisket so so cash would also talked about the starting rotation and he said some things that have me a little bit scared. He says they're willing to go into next year with what they have behind garrett cole and he called dominion herman and luis severino number two starters at worst what fantasy world is he. Living in this is this is gem speak. This is great. This is exactly what he's supposed to be doing pumping up his players that he has already under contract controlled telling everybody that this is. What exactly what he needs to be a success during the season overstating their their abilities. Now he's not overstating with severino is severing the number one at best. He's not this year though he's not in two thousand twenty one. he's not gonna pitch until june doing. Was there a stipulation on the time when pinot number one talking about for twenty twenty one in twenty twenty one luis severino is not going to be a number two pitcher because he's going to be fully ramped backup iams learning block until two thousand twenty two. I am starting to love. I don't like his indecision. But i love the comments because they piss you off so badly now and it's and it's making these li- now he's lying through. He's just looking me specifically through the camera in my eyes and he's telling me things that patently false. I let me go her. Mom's a number four pitcher. Well that's not true when he's pitching if he's if he's at his best he could certainly be a number two. He should head to good months in the in. The major leagues mytalk had one good month and we were comparing him to mike trout. No we were wasn't. I was saying he's a number four outfielder. I wasn't calling him a starting all star left fielder mike Frigging mike talk. Men dominguan hasn't pitched in the major since two thousand nineteen in that season. He had a four point. Oh three are a four point. Seven to four point seven to flip saw x. his stats were skewed by a really good april and may then he got hurt in june and then he was garbage in the second half. He's not a number two pitcher. He's a number four number five pin number two at worst at worst. Low his the number two in cashman and demeanor. harman's a wildest dreams were domingo herrmann. didn't get some altercations. no no. He's a number two right now on their team. He's not lying. Actually he's telling the truth he's a number two right now at worst. who is. they're number two right now to mingo her mind. Probably will you look at is it. Montgomery it's one of the two of them and at least a her mom had two months of of tape. That says i'm a number two so he's actually not if you want to be a technical. He's not lying he is. Wnyc it but no look. It's not the way to work. It's not the way to go into the season. This is exactly the wrong way to go. Because of the controlled pieces that are in the minor leagues. That are major league ready. You should you should. This is the opportunity. I've said this a thousand times. This is the opportunity to get some pitchers under under the on the major league level on the forty man roster on the on the active roster. Because you have the ability that stash guys that have skill. It's now's the time let's go. We can bolster this this This rotation easily. What do you think is pitching is though trevor. Bauer angels and the mets of the front runners for trevor bauer. The mets just signed james mccann. They're on the move stevie and opening up those pockets. Don't you think that that cashman a little bit also loves the rumors at their the leading ones and then he's going to swoop in and take it from the mets that would be an honor thing cashman thinks about that i think maybe the star on the same wavelength is brian. Cashman to be speaking about what he. Brian cashman's money. It's he's brian. Cashman is an employee of of hal. Steinbrenner steve cohen is the owner of the mets. Brian cashman doesn't own dick. But i know that but you don't think that the There's a there's going to be a who's who's nuts or bigger competition between the steinbrenners cohen. At some point there will be l. between the steinbrenners in co which which like you said controls. What's what what. I don't think it's going to be from the steinbrenner side. Because hell doesn't have any of his father in if any until it gets. Cohen is more like more. Like george. Steinbrenner than hal. Steinbrenner's yeah he's movies too fun loving and like different very different personality. But maybe it takes a steve cohen to come in to queens and and be this guy to to bring out the george in how mary out the yeah. Bring out the door. Larry david impersonation seinfeld. That's george i want hayes worried about cal zones and what happens as you get older too. You become more cynical you become more. You know really mean you. You may not feel it because that's how you came out of the womb but it's fine that's normally how it goes you stop giving a rat's about certain things so i could see how getting a little older getting a little bit more stern becoming bothered by the antics that are happening on the in the other borough and make a move. Let's get some emotion going here but don't owners on twitter dowd. be something. hell is so calculated. He's one of these guys that thinks about the words that he's going to say next so it doesn't say anything full shop trying to talk the look. He lost his brother last year. Too and and hank was pro was definitely the most more bombastic definitely more sure mastic. So maybe there's now he's looking he. He's looking at the where the family is currently an understanding that he's gotta represent the family a little bit differently now. He's got trevor bauer and yeah he's got a. He's got to do things a little bit differently. He's got to have some more. You know just just representation of the steinbrenner family. I would love that. I would love to see how flip a switch couple more things. I want to get to run the league before we get easier questions for Dup when you say can use these or hamburgers. I parole meat on those bones. Dombrowski hired is baseball ops for the phillies washington by by farm system. Well we were saying like are. Are they going to sell some peril. No dave dombrowski brings on payroll batman does not sell payroll. He's there to win a championship asap. But he's probably saving money in the long run because they're not gonna have anything left after two years so the red sox we have a five year at sox as the tigers esque all the teams. He is absolutely gutted. Their minor league systems with your five year plan payroll gets real low in the cleveland. Baseball team will no longer be called the indians. After i think i saw after twenty twenty one because they are still deciding on a name a bell mind. I don't think it's i think it's there. They can announce that and then go through a season being called i saw. I saw some like news clip. That said it was gonna be for twenty twenty two but yet you're probably right. They're probably just going to be the cleveland baseball team for the next year. Then 'cause they're i or they're going to decide on name before twenty twenty. They probably already have if they are at least started the process. I would assume they announced it so so bet online. Sent some odds on what the team the team name will be the spiders which was a cleveland baseball organization back in eighteen hundreds the spiders by the way. Oh man have you seen some of these names on the cleveland. Spiders back in the day no all time names all-time names pulling it up right now. There's one name on here that. I don't see which i'm surprised. I don't see. Because i felt like it would at least be talked about to get some press as a as a troll. Yeah i definitely was looking for mitch's yeah that's actually I was ready. I'm ready. I was like i'm reading down like ready to get pissed off. Ready to get pissed off didn't happen. Wow soft well. They've got the software. The cleveland wild things. So for for rick von. Oh yeah there you go that one. That homeboy is ready to go for that one. He's already trying out for the role they've got they've got the cleveland rocks. If you're drew carrey fan you cannot name them. The blue sox. We can't have a third sox team name in baseball. It's just much. yeah. I'm good with They don't need another sox team. Somehow though at five hundred to one odds the cleveland steamers which would be the best name in sports history. So so she's talking about shellfish you shellfish in the mid west of the united states so some of the names. There's water there they've got Yeah that's one of the names to Like the the great lakers or something. Well yeah i mean. There are shellfish lakes just in case. You didn't know that sport. Mcallister was one of the names on the team. Dick harley They've got dick harley. What as the name These were the names on the nineteen ninety. nine cleveland. spiders you got you got you harry lockhead. I mean they're just like old time. Baseball names were the best ozzy scratching cost. I'd say that's that's probably like crazy schmidt crazy schmidt. His first name is crazy is first names crazy. Probably named it probably. So that's one thing that they that they would do back in the day. Is that if you got a nickname that was your name. Your name is it. I don't care what your your name was. this is your new name. If you'd like if you had like four fingers your new name was forfeit and you sign forefingers when you go to the dmv. It's a forefingers. Y- that's what you've that's what you're doing. I think it should be a new thing. Society should now tell you what your name is so they had a get named on twitter that patsy tobacco and a pussy tobacco. I guess they were brothers. So but like also. If you're from down your fingers would be so easy to steal someone's identity. You just chop finger like see. My name's forefingers stalls deadly commitment right there. Eighteen ninety-nine you could just get away with anything right. Yeah you also died when you're you know nineteen because you've got syphilis or you got the flu or okay but if you didn't like you had to be an absolute moron to get caught for crime in eighteen ninety nine. Well if you did get caught for you either. Hung in the town square or shot on site Iraq's thrown at you. By every time i hear eighteen. The eighteenth century baseball. I think conan o'brien in that skit that he did with What's the eighteenth century baseball where he went and played with these guys who do the reenactments or they have a league all three baseball. I haven't seen that skip. But i know about those reenactments i used to watch it. I probably have seen that skit five thousand times. It's hilarious to me. It's absolutely the ball. They would call the an apple and conan conan was was hysterical. Guys twenty twenty has already reshaped how we work in. It's almost over businesses across the challenge.

We talked about tomoyuki sugano. The japanese pitcher. That is i don't know if he's been posted yet. I don't think he's been posted But we didn't really have a scouting report on him Or what type of pitcher was. So i did some more research on them and i read a couple articles that said strong number. Three starter type in the majors. That was an article written in the new york. Post by joel. Sherman jason's krasniqi who is of the japan times. He told this to baseball. America his slider is perhaps the best in japan and he can control it on both sides of the plate. It's a devastating offering when he buries it inside against left handed hitters. Sugano velocity was slightly up in two thousand twenty and the also induced more swinging strikes. He opt his splitter usage and also through a cutter curve ball and that were pseudo. What i guess i miss type. Their his control is as strong as ever a pseudo s shootout s. h. u. T. t. o. Maybe that's the name of. Is that a new pitcher. We don't even know anything about. I'm gonna google that right now. You talk about that scott report. Well i can tell you that. It's a pitch. oh my god. I cannot. It's like the gyro ball two point. Oh yeah. I was excited when i saw it. A shuto or shoot ball is a baseball. Pitch is commonly thrown by right handed. Japanese pitchers such as hiroki kuroda. This must be this. Must be the gyro ball. 'cause dice gays also listed here so they just they just rebranded it. That's very baseball. I mean this is what we do. We rebrand things we call them. Different is designed to mainly breakdown in on right handed bat down in. Yes so it's like a gyro baugh like a reverse gyro ball. Oh my god it hurts my rest just thinking about the shoe shirts right now. The so after seeing the scouting report on this guy. He threw a shootout. I gotta be honest. Definitely more treat. I like this is what i lost a bit when i was talking about before is like and and this is almost like a known quantity coming out of japan. Because guys are they throw usually throw so many different pitches. If this guy was able to control these pitches and and you know the velocity as long as it's as long as playable and mid nineties low to mid nineties even is is fine if you can locate and you have A good arsenal that. You can that you can change. Things seems like he's got all of the above. So i i like the fact that he's got a bunch of different pitches and I'm in the through it. Let's go get. I just want more pitching. We've already lost some so now. This guy is more intriguing to me. Because i'm looking at what's happening on the market. And i want them to bolster the rotation right now so go get him a fine. If you if the yankees take this guy can help. Go get him. It's going to be a short term deal. I think especially with how contracts going would you rather sign this guy or tanaka. I don't think it's going to be a short term deal in the because of the posting. I don't think you can do assure short-term deal it doesn't necessarily structure where the team has options. I know but it doesn't make sense if you're paying a posting fee as well yet it does. The team has options but but now open market right. It's not you don't post it and then you can sign him. It's different posting system where it's a lot more competition. Whoever gives them the bigger contract. Whoever has the most incentivized the most lucrative contract is usually where they're going now. It's a different system. So i don't think you can get away with that type of deal because when you're when one you gotta pay the posting so you're adding more dollars onto it more than you would pay a guy in free agency so therefore you need to get Longer control yes. And i you know i actually did. Some research on the posting system Like back in june or something And i'm i'm forgetting and now we're talking about money that is potentially the discrepancy between signing or not signing you and it's pissing me off so the posting is just a percentage of the contract right for major league contracts with a total guaranteed value or twenty five million or less the release fee or the posting fee. We'll be twenty percent of the total guaranteed value of the contract for major contracts with total guaranteed value between twenty five and fifty million. It's twenty percent for the first twenty. Five million plus seventeen point five percent of the total guaranteed value exceeding twenty five million for fifty million plus contracts. It's twenty percent of the first twenty five million seventeen percent for the next twenty five and fifteen percent for the remaining value of the contract. So theoretically we're getting bargains as you continue as you extend the years annexed and make the contract a little bigger. Aav if you take so contract you are right in the sense that every thirty teams could offer him a contract. He could accept the highest contract. And then that's the posting fees at him him him accepting him accepting that the the club accepting or is it a first right of refusal by the club. I don't know about the i'd have to read. There's there's got to be something in there. Because if he took a smaller contract to play in the place that he wanted the could get screwed. So and i have a hard time believing that that's possible knowing what the system has been in the past. I mean the the system in the past was ridiculous. The posting fee gave you the ability to negotiate with a player. Yeah and it was so backwards like dice. Que almost broke because the red sox posted for him and then he they couldn't agree on a contract But it's definitely changed. It's it's become more of a open competition market system. Yeah and certainly become better for the our zoom and then also it just allows more teams to be involved with these types of guys whereas before you only the only the bigger payroll franchises. Really able to compete. You saw. That's dodgers and the yankees and the red sox were always involved. Hold on this article says players have to be posted between november first and december fifth. It's obviously after december fifth. So did this guy get posted He must have been posted already. Because and that's the thing when you're when you're posting now you have a a bigger window to negotiate just has to be available at that point and now more teams can get in. Yeah they formerly posted him and is a thirty day posting period. So i wonder how how that's going to have any bearing on what free agency is doing thirty days. Then that's coming up. Yeah maybe it's going to be this month You got like depending on what date The and he's he certainly improved. his performance. in twenty twenty up velocity was which is interesting. We were watching a video of his delivery. And it's kind of a unique delivery in the sense that it starts off like traditional japanese delivery kind of like tanaka but then he's got kind of like an upper torso body turner's his arms exaggerate The turn backwards. it's more pronounced. Stay where they are like a spring. It's similar to what similar to what a judge does at the plate. Where he loads he's got a net spring-like load to then create a whip. It that's kind of what he does because yeah. He rotates the top of his his upper torso which gets a little. You know it gets the The tension in the lower hips. And then there's almost a spring effect when he's coming forward it's interesting. Yeah and this would obviously be the fifth major japanese pitcher to come over to the yankees tanaka who was a great success rookie kuroda who pitched for three seasons. He was really good care. Gao kuroda was iraq. Man trenton all star and Araba who was tragic But yeah. I'm intrigued as well if this is their only pitching addition this off season. I don't think that's a success. But if he is one of their pitching additions this offseason. I think that could be good. Sure we we don't know what he's gonna do. We have no idea but from all the things that we see he can control a good amount of pitches. He's got a plus slider he's got fastball. Velocity that plays enough especially with the fortify pitches. Yeah bring them in. let's go all right mailbag questions. We got a few doozy's let's get to him first. One up is from chris. Mack do you think it's possible. Cashman is dragging his feet with dj. Because he is looking trade for linda or air nado. I just find it hard to believe that. If dj is the priority they haven't reached to some sort of agreement yet. So is it is. The plan is the grandmaster minjah cashman plan trade for francis goal. Indoor move labor back to second base let. dj loma he'll walk. You can't plan that that's the problem. You can't plan that you can well. Is he working on that. And that's why he's dragging his feet on. Dj he's talking to everybody. Yes i yes. I probably if that if that is of interest of the new york yankees which it should be at minimum for them to knock on the door and see what the deal is. Yeah you should be looking at it. But it's a trade. You gotta have two willing participants there so you gotta have and you're going to be giving up a lot. It's a different deal. Obviously you can't plan for that you can. You can have that as part of the plan as far as the preparation. You can have one of your plants. One of the routes of free agency that you've mapped out go that way But at some point you have to make a decision based on the information that you know based on your own timetables and not other timetables of other teams. That don't have a name. Clearly they have other things happening over there too. They're a little confused so well you can't do both right. You can't sign lemay an trayful indoor i. I don't see that happening. So if it if these are the two plans it's one or the other you might be left. Should look if you drag your feet on the mayhew and he signs with with toronto. And then you're trying to work out a deal for with cleveland and can't get something done it as a very tricky leverage situation here because of that if and if lemay who has signed somewhere else now cleveland's like you know sitting there with their evil laugh Know middling their hands together saying we you. You're going to have to give up a lot now. So yeah i think that. There's there's a very risky proposition here for. Sure and the the one known quantity go back to this again. It's signing dj lemay and all things equal. Does your team better with indoor or digital. Mayhew i mean you could probably argue both ways. It would be very hard to argue lindores with lot of certainty because one. He came off of a bad season which conveniently. I'll uses a bad season because it was a bad season but and this is exactly what we we know he is so there's definitely more risk with lynn door side. There's no doubt. And i really would be right now. The idea would be silent door to a contract. It wouldn't be rent him for a year and then let them walk. So i think for if we're talking about five years right if for a five year contract for use over the next five years. Your team is better with lindores and gleyber than it is with. Dj -ing labor for the next five years. Maybe not the next one to two years but for the next five years. Maybe it's not. It's not that it's mad is not a definitive. It's not. I think he's as you're making. It seem. i think lynn door is more likely to be a better player in two thousand and twenty two three and four. Then lemay oh. He wasn't a good player with this year but he was a great player in the three years prior to that but dj showed it last year and the year before that dj showed it in a bad in a weird season. This is not a knock on digi lemay you. I know it's a value. it's a it's an understanding of what the value is and the risk. And when i see guy. Dj lemay who who. i know. I'm going to get three really good years out of at minimum. I think three years is very. I think it's easy to say that we're gonna get out of that player. Okay so you do that for linda. If you get three years out of that why would there be surprised if fell off a little bit. I know because he's shown it. I don't know it's risky. It's risky because one you don't have the player secured. There's a lot of other things that that are involved in making that happen and dj's just a matter of paying the guy what he's looking to get earned what he's earned by the way a win the next questions from our he says what do you think about a trade for whitmire field. He would be a good depth. He would be good depth and speed for the lineup. he is cheap and signed through twenty twenty two with an option for twenty twenty three. He is not kidding man. Is he cheap so his contract. He's thirty two years old to start next season. He's awesome what he wants to be honest. I thought he was definitely younger than that me too. He was actually on the the royals championship. Yeah it's crazy. But he was. He wasn't he was like a. I don't think he was probably on the playoff roster anything uses like he appeared in that season two thousand twenty one six point seven five million two thousand twenty two two point seven five million plus incentives two thousand twenty three ten point five million with a team. It's a team option. And a seven hundred and fifty thousand dollar buyout so it isn't really cheap contract for a solid player. Let's not overrate. Width mary field. He's solid to ninety five batting average. Three forty two on base. Four forty four slugging. That is a one zero nine. Wrc plus and he has amassed thirteen point seven war since two thousand sixteen. He's versatile player. he's played right. Field centerfield second base left field first base. It doesn't strike out a ton but he also doesn't walk a lot. He's got some intriguing. Statcast data Really Top of the league with percentage which is great but bottom in the league exit philosophy hard. Hit percentage walk percentage bottom of the league. But he's he's fast good. Sprint speed outs. above average. he's elite so it's like he does different things. If i'm being honest. Great call by owen. I i think that the it would be tough to get him off of the royals right now because of the contract he's very also what are they what are they. What are they looking. If they're learned that like they are is they're screwed in that divisions with her. They're not they're not going to compete when whitmer field is stolen this team right so you you get some mid level prospects and throw some darts. I don't know where he's playing. He's a he's a utility guy with the yankees have a few utility guys that but he. I mean he's tyler. He's made with with a a better bat. Don't sell with a much rabat. Find me a much better by a major league caliber. Battle one zero nine. Wrc plus he fits app. My more to my point is that he fits that role. Okay improves that role significantly especially especially with the injuries. Either injuries this team will most definitely face whitfield could play hundred and fifteen games with. Mary fueled the type of player. He's the he's actually up much better version of the player. Brian cashman brings in all the time. The the bryans of the world the stevie has rules of the world. The why am i losing his name. Who who made the catch off of the tampa bay ceiling shortstop good glove went to the mets hetch avert debris. Thank you those are. You're to talk about slate heath kat. No he's an absolutely yeah but he came up with the not that he's not the type of player i'm talking about. You said tampa expecting these tampa. Then he gets benched these acquisitions that cashman is notorious. For debris defensive players onto the team for potential late inning liability swaps. Is exactly what mary as with a bat what he could also provide some insurance. Because geos gonna start at least spring training not fully ready to go so he might be delayed a week or two in the season Is one of the positions that was not listed for him. No but you have but if you sign hugh you move to third base for two three weeks and have whitmer field play second base here. We are back again talking about the value of dj lemay. Yup anyway. I don't know that he fits like a glove on this team. But i certainly think you could carver role for him. Yeah i like to be honest. There are outfield positions that are seemingly taken down rather win mary field being on this team. I rather whitmer fielder. Brett gardner as like a a fourth fifth outfielder with maryville yep. I'm taking the name of and out of the equation at this point. And i hope that fans can do that because that's what needs to happen. It's not an emotional decision anymore. He's going to lure he's he's very very very very cheap. Brecher is gonna get some love later in the show. That's that's fine and he deserves it. But i'm saying we have to look at what he is now. An understanding that there are potential upgrades that that can help the team. I think mary felt a good player. And i think that he would be a an asset to the yankees next year. And i love that word again asset. I know it's been coming up a lot. You know the one of those one of the stats that you looking at off season when going to these plans and i thought was right on because this is the one of the biggest weaknesses of the team. How one sided. It is is that they need variety in the lineup and went. Murrayfield gives you the ability to plug in different positions. And also i mean. I don't really care that his walk rate is low at all. It just means he makes he makes. Contact puts back the ball moves. Runners or along is batting. Average is telling you that the ball hits hits the hits the dirt or hits the green a little bit more more often than than not for dismissing that stat. It tells us both on base a little bit but he doesn't strike out. He's in the top ninety five percentile. K. percentage ninety third percentile in whiff percents. She does not swing and miss. That is good news for this team. The royals are knocking. Here's the thing where the rose i'm looking at this contract a little bit more closely and in fact is our isn't it. Yeah but it does play. It looks like a really good trade candidate because of that two thousand twenty three team option that they are not going to if they are not going to No they're not going to pick up at all a ten point five million. That's not happy but a team that trades for him probably would pick that up. Maybe depending on what. The landscape of baseball isn't twenty twenty. Three which is who the hell knows. Yeah it's kinda weird that it's like goes down to two point seven five plus incentives and twenty twenty two. I don't really quite understand that but Whatever it is eat intriguing. Not not like a must have player but definitely an intriguing player. Greg from canada. Hey guys now. That is looking more likely that the yankees are aren't bringing tanaka paxton back. I had a thought about matt blake in his role in this. Do you think it's possible that blake has cashman's ear and told him that with our young arms garcia schmidt. King montgomery herrmann he feels. It's possible that he can mold two or more of them into frontline. Starters i thought of this because of blake's past successes in cleveland with bieber please ac and savelli who are all young arms that were developed internally may be blake is a young arm whisperer and can provide low cost and long-term pitching value for the yankees going forward I okay there. There was a there was there was definitely a infrastructure built in cleveland. That matt blake came out of right. There was there was a culture. There was there was support with with the philosophies. I think that he was doing that that he had in his mind. It wasn't a one man. Show and i understand that the yankees are not a one man show as either but this kind of a newer thing is the newer system. They're adopting in a lot of ways for their For their pitching. So i don't have garcia schmidt. King montgomery mon- montgomery herrmann been there for years. We we kind of know what they are. Blake's going to tweak them. It's going to be on the major league level garcia schmidt. You know we're kind of seeing that. So i don't have confidence in that in blake yet to be honest but i do think there's a lot of potential in the system. The problem is it's not a problem to positive thing they're all controlled acid control players right now so so that's why they should be adding to the major league talent. That's why they should be adding more majorly talent that they can afford because it gives them depth and as we've seen firm every season that i can possibly remember pitching depth is pretty important. Starting pitching death is pretty important. And when have the ability to add major league arms without bumping a guy out of rotations because of a major league deal and there's no option to send him down. You should do it. You should take advantage of that. It's an opportunity at the yankees. Currently have and i feel like a broken record here but it's going to really really bother me if they don't take advantage of this opportunity. Yeah yeah. I don't know it's like young arm. Whisper and brian cashman to every who all of the people that oppose. Brian cashman in what he has done to their credit. The one thing that he has not done an identified well is pitching ghetto. Anybody who has cashman dear. I don't even know what that means right. It's like does it really take a genius to identify that. C c sabathia was was a good pitcher no that garrett cole was a good pitcher not yet. That's obvious every other pitcher he's tried to bring in here has not worked out for one reason or the other and they have a real gift. Rhoda was the guy that they brought into me that fit very well and was a good ad and was that was that was a one year contract and he signed a series of one year contracts. That wasn't like a. We're going out and trading for jackson's two different trading from michael pineda again. those were supposed to be organization. Organizational shifting moves. That cashman was making right and they didn't work out definitely. There's no doubt it's been a definitely been the biggest issue in cashman's tenure for sure so if not blake is is saying i. Can you know this depth that you've given me. I can pump them up a little bit. And i can get the most out of them. Sure that's why he was brought in. But that's not going to be enough. Brian cashman and say okay. Great wash my hands of going out and trading or acquiring pitching because we got matt blake. And he's the whisper of of of like mediocre depth. Starters map lake was coaching high school baseball like ago. He was working on little johnny's curveball. Back like mardi mardi mardi. Blaine is barely in the door. Let's not ghetto. Let's not attach our entire offseason plans for pitching on his ability to take the stats and make spin rates. Better and these guys you know buying into it over zoom by the way and you know the making sure that they can take advantage of it because now there coaching through zoom to it. No i i just. I can't get behind this i but hey that being said i hope to god. This happens that that that matt blake can walk in whisper. Sweet nothings in these guys. Ears print out some excel sheet on dot matrix paper. That's what i envision of and show them the way and they listen and they implement and goes well. I hope all of that happens. That would be great. I can't rely on it all right. Well we have Another mailbag question which will get to next time is from daniel. It's about the ultimate yankees team of the two thousand ten's decades. It'll it'll take a little bit of time soon. Do it next time. But i thought it was a great question. So maybe think about it over the next couple of the the ultimate yankee team for the two thousand ten. The it's a weird weird weird era in yankees baseball. No world series appearances. Kind of a transitional decade daniel called in the transitional decade. Which i i i think is Appropriately named because. That's that is what it is. It was a weird. It was a weird decade right. So we'll do that next time. Thank you guys for all the mail bag questions loving these these these questions and suggestions for them any anything else. You wanna touch on scott before we close it out on the other half of five. Oh to how you feel of five hundred how you feeling feeling. Good feeling feeling refreshed here. I would feel a lot better. If they'd sides. Jill mayo uptick in iraq. That's that would make me feel much better all right talk to us. Hey guys thanks for listening to the bronx pinstripe.

The Only Person Stopping You, Is YOU

"Everything that you want already exists. You're the only thing that's not allowing it to happen. This is entrepreneurs the playbook I wasn't gonNA allow anybody buddy to limit my life except for me and what I realized was the one thing I always did. Well in the past was no what I wanted. I wanted wanted to buy my mom a house in a car. I wanted to be rich not only did I know what I wanted. I know why I wanted I. I wanted to be happy. I want my mom to be happy. That was the why that was the thing that drove me every day. Regardless of what everyone else thought I could could or couldn't do and then it was my job to understand. How am I going to do it. The interesting thing I saw mathematically about my life is the minute. You know what you want and most people don't know what they want. They haven't sat down and thought about it but the minute you know what you want. You have a mathematical advantage over everyone else. You now have a possibility and then if you know the why if you know the why in your life you now have a statistical success. S. Greater than possibility. You have a probability when you know you'RE Y. You become inspired. You have passion and purpose when you know Oh you're Y and there's only one thing in your way between you and what you want and that's you now used to tell tell people you're the only thing in your way right once once you know the what and why let's figure out together. Let's raise your awareness. That's a strategy together other habits that you need. WHO SHOULD I ask for help. How should I attract all these different things when I say you're in your own way what I mean is. There's there's two things in your way. The first is really easy to understand. It's time if I'm going to teach you a lesson today. That's the hardest to understand this. This time is a man made construct. Why is that so difficult to understand especially at your age because because you only have so much time time is not linear time is one the past president future all the same which means you should be able to to access what you want that everything that you want already exists. You're the only thing that's not allowing to happen. The faster you vibrate the more you can understand or be aware of that which exists there's enough of everything including sports jobs. There's enough of everything for everyone. In fact there's more than enough of everything for everyone and time does not align with that thought right. Time is a scarcity right. If we think in terms of time a man made concept by the way we only have so much time aw I'll be happy happy when I graduate. I'll be happy when I give them your first job. I'll be happy when I make a one hundred thousand dollars. We have to make a million dollars. I'll be happy to make one hundred a million dollars. It'll be happy when I get married. I'll be happy when I get divorced. I'd be happy right. It goes on and on guess what when you attach your happiness to outcome based on time that time will never overcome. You need to in order to be happy. Enjoy the consistent every day persistent without quit pursuit of your potential. That's happiness enjoy the consistent persistent pursuit of your potential and you gotTa know what your potential is. What do you want great. What is it you want to be a sports journalist. You want to be a sports doctor sports lawyer. Would it be what is it. You want to be administrator a straighter whether it be an athlete whatever it is you want. You need a consistently every day persistently without quit enjoy that pursuit why consistency I think consistency is the most important thing because consistency elevates. Your awareness was the lesson. Don't let your point of entry consistently persistently pursue your potential and enjoy it. That's all I did. I let anything limit me. All I kept doing was thinking about what I wanted. Why I wanted did it and how I was going to get it and trusted the universe. This is what most people do. They're afraid of heights. So what do they do the go I'm afraid of heights and they focus Cassini being afraid and they focus on being afraid and keep focusing on being afraid and then what happens the get real close to what they're afraid of and of course what happens they fall fall off why because they're afraid of heights and then of course they catch in the save themselves on some branch and they're hanging there. They're hanging there and then thinking. Oh Oh my God. Is Anybody up there. That can help me now. They're asking for inspiration now. They're asking for help when they put all their faith in what they didn't want and they were surprised to get what they didn't want because they put faith in what they want and they're hanging there and they're looking up going in there and help you and then the universe. God comes down and says yes. I am here here to help you. Just let go. I'll catch you. I can't you being what we're all too afraid. We're all too afraid to let goes to what we do. We look back up and say anyone else out there. That can help me come on. I let go. I let go. I didn't trust. I wasn't afraid to say oh if I don't if I don't become a real lawyer. I'll never be sports agent right if I don't take that normal normal job oh if I didn't do this. I can't help out my friend if I don't start meditating all there's no limit in the point of entry even today from what I did now. If somebody asked me David how do you become a sports agent. How do you become the CEO of the most notable sports agency in the world and I told you oh it's really they simple couple of football player then studied medicine then go to law school to be an oil and gas litigator but instead taken can job in the Internet Szeliga research online then go to the silicon valley raise a ton of money then become CEO of the biggest first smartphone biggest manufacturer factor of phones in the world then retire become angel investor and a real estate developer then help out a friend shift the paradigm of your own life into one of service and you'll meet somebody. They'll give you the best job most of you would say. Why did I come tonight. I'm fifty years old. I have three mentors at all time minimum in my life people that sit in the situation that I want to be if you WANNA be a sports journalist call Sam farmer and ask them for help. You could try to do what you want to become. Sam Farmer or you could ask Sam farmer how to be Sam farmer armor. If you want to be a sports doctor go call. Dr Chow ask him how he was young doctor in the NFL. He'll be happy to help you. You want to be a sports agent. Come down the street eight in for me or Lee Repertoire athletes I or see ya. IMG or all the other lawyers in sports agents that came from our firm right here over the last thirty years ask if they say no the first time realize. You're that much closer to getting what you want. I have an intern right now. From Brooklyn came out here he he wants to work in the NBA told me this story today. They waited outside nine hours for Phil Jackson. Listen nine hours waiting and when Phil Jackson came out to talk to Phil Jackson he said Oh he was. I waited nine hours so you he'll. I don't have time right now to talk to you and he said okay fine. Where can I wait next then when you do have time ended up literally getting into the NBA in the NBA just by pure perseverance consistently persistently. How bad if you don't want it bad enough somebody else? Does somebody else else does when I lost everything the hardest thing that I had to do was I was already on my journey. I always already of service but I'd created bad add causes in my life. I'd made decisions surrounded with the wrong people the wrong ideas. I wasn't asking for help. I was living in arrogance. Egotistical living with Time Eagle attached gotcha outcomes two years after I was in my transformation. I went bankrupt two hardest things I had to do was I realized realize when I woke up that morning bankrupt that I had to go up to Lee Steinberg's office where my office was the one movie Jerry Maguire up here in fashion island. Lee Steinberg Gone One side Warren Moon now partner on the other and tell those guys by the way you're mighty. CEO The guy that you've entrusted to take this firm to the next level the number one sports agency in the world is bankrupt pit in my stomach but before I could leave the work. I had one more thing I had to do. Remember why I wanted to be rich anyone how my mom would I wanna buy her housing and car right so I had to go walk over my mom's house before I left work. Knock on the door waker up. Tell L. my mum on. I've lost everything on bankrupt and by the way you have to move because I lost your house as well hardest thing I've ever had to do. My mom looked me in the eyes and she said fairly simply. Are you okay. Can I let you have some money. Do you want to borrow some money. That's what I realized what my life was about right. The purpose of my life was just to unconditionally give to others the way that my mom her whole life the reason I wanted to give her the reason I wanted to be rich had given to everybody everybody. It was never about her. She was in receivership. She simply was in receivership. Which is why everyone of my siblings are successful. They went to Harvard in Penn Columbia. SUMMA cum laude extraordinary human beings because they all live their lives of service and in receivership. They're of value. They don't limit limit their points of entry by younger brother. Sudoku live from Harvard. Welcome graduated in three years decided to get a religious studies masters for his fourth year since he was under scholarship. No six languages decides as it gets into Harvard. Med school that he's not going to be a doctor because he's not going to limit his point of entry in life and he became a rabbi but rabbinical school was too easy for him so he got a PhD in social ethics and ended up working for President Clinton as an adviser on social ethics in cloning now if you ask my brother when he was five years old what he wanted to be come here to talk to you. Dr The same way I would have told you football player there. Don't let your point of entry. You can do whatever you want. The biggest mistake people make in trying to get a job in sports is number one. They think sports is a job. It's not a job. It's an industry jobs. Are Journalists Doctor Lawyer Social Media Marketing. Pr Those are jobs. Those are skills. Knowledge Sports is an industry. If You keep your point of entry wide you'll have multiple multiple options of what you can do within sports. It's amazing to me. Ninety percent of the people limit their your point of entry and they've already limited their point of accent as well. I'm GonNa tell you don't do it. All I want you to do is to enjoy the consistent every day persistent without quit pursuit of your potential. I want you to think about what you love to do. And then figure out how to monetize is it if you're GONNA call it a job that you want to make money and it's okay to sacrifice. It's okay to sacrifice. It will come and faster. If you trust university. Let go it will come friends. My friend Mike Tannenbaum went law school of music or the jets. He's now executive vice president the dolphins and he always says oh I was lucky went to go work for the saints and the collective bargaining agreement and I I was in the right place. No no no no no not through the truth. Is You had one hundred thousand dollars. The loans like me and you had Jewish parents me but yet you said and stood up to everyone that I'll make six hundred dollars a month working for the saints starting at the bottom not limiting my point of entry. You weren't afraid Brian Cashman good friend of mine intern for free for the New York Yankees. Nobody else was laughing. He's working for free and ended up assistant general manager and then general manager one of the most sought after point of entry jobs in the world. If you truly want to work in sports then figure out what you love to do in ask for help and attain the skills the knowledge to go along with your desire live your life and passion with purpose and Dan Profitability. It's okay to make money right this two sides of money that you want to worry about one. What am I gonNA do with my money but but also how do I get my money and if you get your money manipulating people it's not a workout for you but if you get your money by motivating raiding by providing value by consistently I wake up every morning and think to myself after I think ten people I can help my rooms full one hundred dollar bills. I actually feel what it feels like to give one hundred dollar bills to people all day long and take twenty back. I want to know what it feels like. Tell you why people don't close is because they don't believe you've and they don't carry the energy. There's an unconscious competency that people have genetic an energetic. They don't feel it. That's the only difference between the closer and someone it doesn't close is they can't articulate the emotional feel right you buy on emotion for logical reasons so everyone in here. I want you to ever limit the point point of entry for yourself. I don't want you to get in your own way. I don't want you to let the time or your ego. The need to be right. The need to be offended. The need be guilty then he'd be fearful that need to be separate than he'd be superior that need to be inferior any of the needs of the ego to get into your way. I need you to know what it is. What you want the possibility Ludi why you wanted the probability and then how you're going to get it is really easy. You're going to elevate your awareness. Your increase your vibration by being of service. Your strategy is going to be to ask for help as well as give help okay and then you're going to provide the value and if you do that the what what the why and the how you will make your possibilities probabilities and that sports job that you want your perspective in reality on a personal note. I just wanted to thank everyone for making the playbook such a success. Don't forget to continue it by sharing subscribing and listening to your favorite episodes is Dave Meltzer with the playbook.

Remembering Kobe and Gianna Bryant

"This is one A.. I'm Todd Willik in Washington. How are you and the rest of the country dealing with the tragic death of Kobe Bryant and his thirteen year? Old Daughter Jonah. They were among nine people who died Sunday after their helicopter. Copter crash near Calabasas California. Here's a call from Katy one of many of you who is devastated. By this week's news we look at the things that are in the column column of good versus on the negative and maintain his legendary status and the good that he's brought to others off the court and Dan after his retirement to the kids to the families to people around the world. People across the country are dealing with this tragic loss. Kobe Bryant was beloved by so many for his accomplishments and what he gave back to communities and to basketball a lot of people are also grappling with what to do when a beloved celebrity has a complicated past. What will Kobe? Bryant's enduring legacy look like and how should we memorialize public figures in their totality joining me now by phone Palo you get a staff writer for the ringer. A sports news site Palo. Welcome to one. Ed Thank you for having me a Brian Cashman. Esky is also here Brian. Brian is a sports writer. and Co host of the form club a Lakers podcast from ESPN LA seven. Ten Brian. Great to have you thank you reveling and also with us from Los Angeles Molly night. She's a journalist for the athletic and all online sports news publication. Molly great to have you as well. Thanks for having me Apollo. It's been about two days since Kobe. Bryant's sudden and tragic passing. What struck you about the public reaction now now that the public is maybe passed? That initial shock. I think especially here in Los Angeles you see the connection. He had built up with all these people you know. On Sunday I went to a couple of the murals that depict him celebrating. And you see all the people from all all different kinds of walks of life and all different kinds of areas of la coming to you know. Drop some flowers or some letters and candles and it's really for me at least you. I grew up here. But I'm not from your from Asaba. And you see people from of Latino people from all kinds of walks of life and and all of them having been brought together rather by the connection to Cobian and his career which you know if you think about it longer than most players I think really really resonated with multiple generations and is you talked to Angelenos around L. A. Paolo. What are some of the threads some of the recurring sentiments? That you here. is they remember Kobe. Yeah I think obviously everybody remembers the big moments you know the eighty one point game championships and and you know his buzzer readers. And all of that. But there's also a something I've been really interesting is there's A. There's a personal connection with a lot of people and I think people gravitate to a player like Steph curry these days because you know he plays the game with such joy Cho he kind of played it with this very hard nosed dedication and work. That came to really define him and I found that interesting. That people will still gravitated toward that founded related. Almost that that that hard work that he put in they felt like you know they felt like he inspired them to also do that in whatever their walk of life. Now Brian Kamensky. You cover the Lakers for people who didn't follow his career as closely as maybe a lot of people in Los Angeles remind mind a little bit about his dominance on the court his numbers. What kind of player was he? He was arguably the the the greatest score score of this generation after Michael Jordan You know he Just this weekend. Lebron James. Also playing for the Lakers past coby on the all time points points list To go from four four two thirds so now Kobe is ranked fourth all time in points scored he had five titles is all of which came in in a Lakers uniform. there are very few players of this or any other generation who have this sort of statistical a typical accomplishments. Who have the All Star appearances and the championships and all of these things he has an MVP award that? Kobe accumulated over. The course of of twenty years is a Laker. It's quite a legacy you know before. We continue talking about Kobe. Bryant and his legacy. We also want to honor the the memory of the other passengers aboard that helicopter on Sunday. Their names are Christina. Mazar a girls basketball coach in Orange County California. John Altobelli the head basketball coach at Orange Coast College. His wife Carrie Altobelli and their daughter Eliza altobelli player for the Mambas Sarah Chester her and her daughter Peyton and Ariza Byron Kobe. Bryant's private helicopter pilot Molly night you wrote one of the few individual tributes to GonNa Bryant Thirteen years old for the athletic. She seemed to have accomplished quite a lot in her young life. She did and it was important to me I understand her. Father was one of the most famous people in the world And when that happens when you have a famous parent I see it all the time in in in Los Angeles than I have. I have friends who famous parents often invisible people. You're you you walk into a room with your data your mom or your sibling in uh-huh Everyone started them in. No one looks at you or they only talk to you because they want to get to the famous person you're related to There's something that struck me about. How about this death when I was at the crash site in it was confirmed that the Gina was among those who were killed? I just thought you know I. I don't want hardy. Just be known as as Kobe. Bryant's daughter as CLETO collateral damage Even in the Kobe Bryant Death So I went researched earn. Yeah she was a fierce young basketball player she she loved it and I believe if she had the same DNA as Kobe wanted to be the esten. Just practising practising practising all the time I mean I think I think she absolutely could have achieved goals which were going to play University of Connecticut going and going onto Wnba. It's just it's just such a shame or grow only thirteen years old and I believe she needed to be eulogize remembered. It is as a person in her own right. Her goal to go to University of Connecticut. Dominant Women's Basketball Program in division. One molly the passengers aboard that chopper. Oppor were headed to a game for the Mamba. Sports Academy talk a little bit about that. Yeah so Kobe. Bryant is actually done doesn't quite a bit and he's he's got four daughters has been inspired Just to be a stay at home dad with them to get involved in youth sports in the Mamba Sports Academy we number park as a as a place where kids go and play basketball and there was a tournament I believe he started with one other person. There was a tournament over the weekend. They were there on Saturday. Played and everything was fine. He lives down in or he it's so weird to save lives in present tense His family lives his family. Lives down in South Orange County and it's quite a commute. Driving wise could take up to three hours to get out there and And so they okay. He decided along with Some other kids from Jiji's team and their parents to take a helicopter out there that day To who to join in with all the games were played. And I I know Jonah was was scheduled to play that day and I imagine the other children on on the helicopter were as as well though. It's just the idea that they were killed going to arrest tournament really hit me hard. I I grew up playing basketball. I heard from some of my teammates yesterday. Were you know when we from from when I was thirteen We're just talking about all the all the all the tournaments be committed to just how how devastating the says in two thousand Eighteen Bryant appeared on the podcast decor with the big cat and a rat. Here's Kobe Bryant talking about his love of helicopters copters and how he became a passenger. Tell us a little bit about your team your Newport beach and you you you take a helicopter walk us through it and why and how that started. A lot of people don't know that story. Yeah so my routine is always the same. I wake up four in the morning and I lift weights. You know really early five in the morning get home at about six thirty time. Wake up the kids for school after school activities all the fun stuff even on weekends but then traffic start getting really really bad right right and I was sitting in traffic. I wanted missing school play because I was sitting in traffic in this distinguished came out and I had to figure out a way rockets. Still trained in focus but still not compromise Burma's family time. And so that's when I looked into helicopters able to get down in back in fifteen minutes and that's when it started Palo. Kobe Bryant one of the people who can skip over L. A. Traffic by taking a helicopter instead of sitting on the freeway. What what's known at this point about conditions on Sunday? I I think you know looking seeing the reports. They're still investigating that but it seems like some you know I. I remember waking up on Sunday and seeing that there was soi even hearing all he would and and you know. I think there was a report that it might have been foggy in that might have possibly affected the flight. But yeah I it was. It was weird gloomy day. Like I said it just kind of carried on his ain't I didn't notice it the fall. I wondering you know near the mountains whether that was also something then you know was a factor in that all right Brian. We're going to take a pause in a minute but before we do just give me a sense of the reaction from around the league. Other athletes colleagues of Kobe Bryant. I think it's difficult to overstate the impact that Kobe hat on players He in the League for twenty twenty years. There are a lot of guys who play now who were playing against Kobe a few years ago when he retired but also the way he sort of inspired younger players in the way that they looked up to him as as a model in the same way that players Kobe generation might have looked at Michael Jordan or Magic Johnson Larry Bird and so the tributes around the League have been frequent. A A lot of players have of his friends of Miss Games because they just couldn't play The Lakers won't play tonight You know Tuesday night and their game against the clippers that that was postponed by the NBA. There's just deep levels of grief around the league. That's a Brian Cashman at ski from. ESPN LA seven ten. The Form Club podcast contributor the Athletic Paulo. You Getty's here and so as Molly night we're GonNa take pause and then talk about how Kobe Bryant will be remembered in his totality.

We're talking about the legacy of Kobe. Bryant with PAGLIUGHI staff writer for the Ringer Brian Kamensky Co host of ESPN LA seven. Tenths the form podcast and molly night and journalist for the Athletic Kobe. Bryant could be a polarizing figure figure both as a player and celebrity in two thousand and three. He was charged with one count of Felony Assault. His accuser was a nineteen year old worker at the Colorado Hotel where Bryant was staying at the time he was twenty four. She declined to testify in the criminal case that came from the charge and then the charge was dropped. OPT Bryant settled civil case outside of court in two thousand and four with the woman for a non-disclosed amount of money. We heard from a few listeners. Who struggled to reconcile this part of Brian's past with the entirely positive attributes that are currently dominating the conversation I named Lauren calling from Minneapolis Minnesota calling about the story on Kobe? Bryant's legacy GonNa really hard and confusing few days processing this news news I was raped when I was nineteen. which is the same age Kobe? Bryant's accuser was in two thousand and three and so while it's very sad That this you know. Tragic accident happened that his daughter was on board. I also feel angry and confused that the predominant narrative is that he was this incredible athletes in person When there was just really dark side to us life so just trying to hold all of that and You know give give space for all those emotions. Thank you for your story Lauren. We also heard from a listener in Colorado who remembers watching Kobe. Bryant play in two thousand and three when Kobe became a star. I was athletic trainer for the women's basketball team at the University of Colorado. I was actually at a Laker game at the staple center when when they play. The Denver. Nuggets and Kobe actually arrived halfway through that game because he'd been in Colorado earlier that day with for legal proceedings he shows up to the big cheers. He he actually hits the game winning jumper to beat the nuggets. So I've always been a little conflicted about Kobe eventually. The cases the charges were dropped against him and and the more important part is that Kobe made an apology. I believe the girl and and what she says happened that day and part of the reason I believe her is because Kobe apologize and he acknowledged that he even though he considered what happened consensual. He could understand why she may have thought. It wasn't consensual. I do wish Kobe would would have been more public about speaking out against sexual assault and about consent because especially in this moment in era that we live in. It's still not completely understood instead. Rob tweeted this. It seems to me that Kobe. Bryant's trajectory and legacy was significantly altered by the rape incident. The settlement may have been distasteful to awesome but it appears to me that he truly made a sincere effort at redemption. Brian Cashman Eski. Have you heard similar responses from people. You've talked talk to about this complicated and difficult part of Kobe. Bryant's past and whether he truly made amends for it. Yeah I mean I think there are. There are are fans of Kobe and fans of the Lakers. Who who don't really want to think about it? I think there are other fans who think it's vitally important to to remember this and I and I do think it is something that is that is that is part of the story and part of the record of Kobe. Bryant and into ignore it Does a disservice to history. It does a disservice to accuracy I to me what I think is so significant is looking looking at how different things would have been When you compare you know two thousand three two thousand four and when the case was settled to what what what would it be now? And what are the prevailing attitudes. Now how would this trial have been handled. How the coverage would have been different You know the the his accuser user was treated very very harshly in the media and the way we talk about consent the way we talk about victims and accusers is much different out to the in in a in a more positive direction and I think the story Kobe Bryant would have been significantly different. Had this incident happened in in. You know fifteen years later what you do with that as a sports fan and as a Kobe fan is is difficult to quantify. Because you know in anything where we have sort of these tribal alignments of our favorite teams are our favorite politicians. Whoever might be? We are famous for COMP- compartmentalizing these sorts of things and taking the things that we don't like and kind of putting it in a box over here because we don't like to think about them But what you know what Kobe was accused of doing and what came of that is an important part of this story. That should be talked about and should be acknowledged even while also also acknowledging you know the work that he did with you know girls basketball and with his family and all these other things in the WNBA and you know what came of Kobe In in the years Follett. Let's hear from another one of YOU WANNA listeners on this issue of balancing Kobe. Bryant's legacy. Yes my name. Is Noah and I'm calling in reference to the Kobe Bryant question you asked about should you highlights the bad thing. Of course you know when an individual has done a lot of good and a lot of bad that encompasses who they are but don't buy it. We highlight one bad thing to overshadow all the good. Someone is done just this report it as it is. That's that's all. We want Kobe. Kobe was a legend Made a mistake and You know we're talking about philanthropy and what he's done and he was legacy Palo is you travel around. La talked angelenos about Kobe and get their memories in their overall impressions tower. They processing this duality. Are they do they talk to you about both things. There was man. There was one man who mentioned that you know in speaking to him and and in the way he framed it was that he thought that you know well that was an important part of his career which it is and when that couldn't be ignored and campy I did feel like from his perspective. He's Kobe had matured a lot and grown a lot. And you know I think Kobe's outside celebrity status and you you know welcomes this kind of careful. Study of his entire life you know the flaws and as well as the triumph and I think from people's perspectives. He had he had grown a line. He had matured. He he had seemed to you. Know become a different person from what from what happened in that moment even though at the time I believe that it was if you go back and look part of the reason he created this you know Black Mamba mentality. That came to be known as kind of his his his nickname was because he wanted to separate himself from was was really troubling situation. So I think people people are you know like like Brian says the dirt. They don't smoke them. Don't really want acknowledge it but you no. I think if you if you as a fan are that passionate about Kobe passionate about his wife and you know you you recognize any cherish. The great things he did. You can also welcome the maybe not criticism but the the The identifying of those tougher situations that that did happen the need to be knowledge. No it's not not just for the sake of remembering Kobe but also for the sake of victims and not specifically just African with victims across the country. I think it's incredibly important. To due process a celebrity in their legacy in its totality. I I hope that the culture is doing that. We're trying to do it here on one and I think it's the way to look at a person's percents contribution overall when you look at their life and they pass from us. We'll have a few more questions for my guests after a short break. Stay with us. This is one many of us have imaginary friends as children. But for some of us these invisible companions Indians. Don't go away. She was as real to me as my friend next to me this week on hidden brain from NPR. Back now to who are conversation about the legacy of Kobe Bryant a Brian Back to the court for just one second. There's an episode. I saw on social media that I just wanted to put to your a much bigger basketball ball fan than I am. I'm a baseball guy but I saw a video of a game where Kobe Bryant was on the cusp of sixty points and he was on the free throw line and he drained one for fifty nine and then when it was time for him to get a sixty point game. An opposing player on another team stepped stepped into the lane in so that if Kobe Bryant had missed sixty points he would get another shot. 'cause that's a violation. That was an image that it reflected how other players felt about him. and His dominance. Yeah this is actually from Kobe. Bryant's final game which was replayed Monday night on. ESPN I and We replayed it on our air. SPN La on the radio This this was his final point As a player and that player on the Utah Jazz Gordon Hayward and there are a lot of people who thought that he did that on purpose He has said Gordon Hayward has that wasn't intentional. He wasn't trying to get Kobe. Another free throw If he had missed But I love that story anyway. Because it does sort of show the respect that players had for for Bryant as as just this icon in basketball and what he was doing it thirty seven years old to score sixty points on in his final game. The the level of theater there and It just it felt so appropriate and I was at that game was one of the most remarkable things I've ever seen But it it it. He wasn't really trying to do anymore over. I don't think Koby would have wanted him to do it. fortunately he hit the free throw an so sixty. was you know untainted. In that way. He looked like like he was trying to give him another shot. But he says he wasn't. It's hard to tell but you know guys take a long time to take the free throws in the get impatient. Wait and go try to get a rebound. Let's close out our conversation about Kobe. Bryant by hearing from the Athlete himself. Here's Kobe Bryant reading dear basketball. It's a poem published by. Yeah the Players Tribune in twenty fifteen and adapted for an Oscar winning animated short by the same name. Listen the deer basketball From the moment I started rolling. My Dad's tube socks shooting imaginary game winning shots and the Great Western for. There's a new one thing was real. Fill in love with you love so deep. I gave you Offer from a mind embody to my spirit and so as a six year old boy and deeply in love Sir. I never saw the end of the tunnel only so myself.

"Are you ready to meet the moment ozzy and our friends at chevrolet proud to present real talk real change to help foster racial equality in america. And we're inviting you to help join the carlos watson. I talked with key leaders from across the country about racial disparities in america's healthcare system. Look for the carlos watson show and real talk real change on youtube and subscribe or download the carlos watson show forever. You get your podcasts. Good morning how are you. Good morning jam. Fine you know yes. There was a nice easy day was a going on in our local sports world but tonight everybody's back in action again and and For for me. it's ranger islanders. In yesterday got a chance to spend a little bit with matt. Sydney doodoo and everything was great. And you know matt told me a story yesterday and i was wondering whether or not i should tell it on the air and i thought no i thought this would really give people a really good perspective of where my son in law's coming from okay and you know his mindset about obviously. We're talking rangers islanders. And you know. I was talking. Maybe i'll go to the game tonight. you know. And he's like going to the game tonight and my daughter's yelling at me. Are you really going to game. You're going to go with me. And i'm going gonna go with. I'm like i said if i go to the game i'm not going with. I'm just not going with. I love you dearly. I love my granddaughter dearly. Just i would not go to the game with you. Just as there's no way so mad kind of gets drill and he understands it you know he'd love for me to go to the game and you know i'm not conflicted. I want my team the win sure especially with the way that my team's been playing as of late we're trying to make a playoff push and we got to win this game tonight. So matt tells me a story during the off season. So i guess. I'm not a gamer. So i guess. Ps five came out of new. Ps five controller came out this year. Okay and you know. He works with the guys over their pc. Richard and the guy from pc richards Pro told them. Say hey look you know. We don't have any in right now. But i can put your vip program in your owner your he. How many how many would you like to get. That knew that a couple of his teammates would probably want one. Maybe gonna would want one. Whatever i got worse so anyway he begins ends up getting five. Ps five controllers so his new goalie sarokin base comes to him and says you know. I'd like to hear you have control. I like to buy controller. You know that kind of thing and He then says was that really for me for my best friend and matt sauce for your best friend whose best friend and he goes. Oh right macos now. That doesn't play around here giving you and selling you a ps five for iglesias turkey. That's right right right. So enemy live so mad. Kinda gets it i. I don't know if she ever got one. But i'm trying to get a first best friend sirkin sarokin historic and we're best friends. I didn't know that. Did you know that i knew that. You didn't know that. Because he obviously play together over and russia and everything else. And that's what makes this even more intense that you have two best friends going against each other but you know maybe they just don't understand the ranger-islander thing. I'm sure that they understand it now. But it just highlighted to me once again. Why i'm right in this whole thing. Yeah see matt wouldn't sell. His teammate appears five to give to his best friend who plays for the rangers. If he played for any other team in the league he would have probably sold to them of course would not sell it home because the guy plays with for the ranger the right thing yeah talking about yes earns answer you. I said you guys actually practice shooting on net in practice. I was just wondering casino squirrel how to as of late so we had a lot of good back and forth yesterday. Huge game for both teams tonight. And then course. The mets and the yankees are back in action The next got charlotte that that's a huge game charlotte's behind them boston. Lost last night's nova. Knicks are tied with boston so a lot of this starting to happen now especially for hockey and basketball as we approached the final throws probably the last three weeks of the regular season. Sure so what did you think about brian. Cashman having to make some comments yesterday. Think you that if you were him. Would you same thing i would. I would have resigned. What is because aaron. Boone is starting to hear it and we here try to be as logical and his practice we possibly can be. And i listen billy martin's not walk through the door and back in the old days you could. You could change things up by bringing in a personality. Like billy martin. The gut the gut manager the guy that was not afraid to get anybody's face in this day and age. That's a it's a completely different game. It's managed a different way. And the reason that aaron boone is here is because he listens to the front office. He works with them very closely. does does not give him the old stiff arm. I know more baseball than you do. And he works well with that group on that side of the team and the players actually do like them and they may not be looking at the men look like. They're playing for him right now but baseball is like again. It's one hundred sixty two game season. There they'll come out of it. Eventually they will come out of it and eventually the glacier tour of the world the aaron judge's of the world the dj lemay use. The world are all going to start raking again. They're all gonna start raking again and everything's going to get back to normal. But i do think that if i'm brian cashman i have to come out and say something because you're listening to this radio station. All the fans are all over. Aaron boone guys. It's not aaron bone. He does not put the team together does not play the game and if i if he mismanaged the game mismanaged a substitution or or lineup. Match up which. We all know that he's collaborating with the front office. With then it would be easy to say. Get rid of the guy. But he's a good guy. He's a good baseball guy. Reminds me of aj hinch. Who was a celebrated manager prior to all the cheating scandal. Down there in houston. But i just. It's a players that have to start the perform. They have to start the hit and eventually that will come. The question is. Is it going to come this series the next series the series after that. Because i'll tell you the having one of the worst records not the worst record in baseball. Is roy embarrassing. When it comes to the eric york of course now there's two very distinct takes that are very different on the yankees right now. The first one is it's early. they'll figure it out. Look at the track record. Look at these guys. they'll be fine. The other is. They are fundamentally flawed. And it's not about having a good regular season it's about having a good postseason and the roster albeit stacked with big time hitters there are flaws on the roster and we've seen it too many times and i think the reason why it's a good argument is both sides have legitimate points. Yes it is very early. Yes the yankees could still win one hundred games. I mean they started out and boone's first year six and nine and they ended up winning one hundred and three games. That's only game worse than where they are now so sure they could turn it around but really i think what the yankee fan that's nervous keeps reminding themselves of is how they've been beaten by better teams in the postseason every single year. It's not like they have underachieved. They're just getting beat by better teams. It's not like they're going into the series and choking they're not going into the post season as the best team in losing the somebody who's got no business beaten them they're going into these series and losing to better teams and they haven't improve when you get off to a start with your five games under five hundred that's a real number regardless of where you are in the season but does a real significant situation that has taken place over the last year and a half or last year and in the beginning of the season and that is the tampa bay rays and when you compare the two teams and you look at the disparity in money that is spent on the players it just it just throws gasoline on the fire and the fact that the rays came in here in yankee stadium and swept them and garrett cole pitch a third of those three games it is just. It's about as low as it can get. I mean think about that for a second and it is. It's annoying and frustrating as it can get for van so when you combine all of things that you just said and then you get swept at home by the tampa bay. Rays were knocked out last year. Who basically have owned you own. They own the yankees. Yeah bitch slap them all over the place. Yeah and in a playoff. Yes exactly right. So that is what is fueling. This angst this spire this. Get rid of boone. Whole narrative and brian. Cashman it's been around here for a long long long long time. Brian cashman looks okay. And he's never he's not gonna panic. Not panic yeah. He'll make moves because we've seen him make in season. The fell problems like you already made a move door here. Because he knew he had a problem at first base and he had to move away. Lemay you over there. So it's not like he sits on his hands and does nothing sure. But there's only so much you can do is point in the season for the last two or three years. He's actually pushed all the right buttons. When you think about it when they brought in didi gregorius to take over for derek jeter. That was a brilliant move when they brought in. Jio assure or shovel here. The point third base. That was a brilliant move. They brought in talk man. He turned out when he first got here. It was awesome. It's an awesome baseball player for them and was one of the reasons i guys like. He and mike ford and luke foyt when they brought luke void in. When you know all all of these different moves that he has made have all worked out the one area where i think he has. Unfortunately it hasn't worked out for him has been the starting pitching starting pitching him and he did a three hundred. After pitches one. I understand but after that it sort of been okay. What's next year. You'll let go severino's at his injuries. Thought davey garcia would take a step this year. He still may when he comes back. But and then you sort of patchwork in the thing with tyrone on corio. J. hat brought in you had paxson brought in. Had all these guys brought in. You had tanaka here so now you have a completely different pitching staff by do think her mind and severino are going to be big players in this whole thing you know may maybe it won't all take root and told the second half of the season i'm not sure. And what makes it fun for us as we get to talk about this. Because they're miserable right now and they're one of the highest paid teams in the league. Yeah well they just can't get buried is what it comes down to. They can't get buried and you're five games under five hundred this early. I mean it's a possibility. Five turns to ten. Then you've got to really dig yourself out of a hole. I'm not an anti analytic guy. I'm not. I've never really are changing now. No i am not changing the new england patriots have been doing this for years and years and years and years and years and years and years but there is a thing that is called the eye test. You gotta go with your gut every now and again and if a guy has four hits on tuesday and then you're gonna take them out of the lineup on wednesday just simply because the numbers say that he's not gonna hit against the you know. The left handed pitcher that. He's going to be saying. I i kinda hate that. I that part of it. I don't like sometimes you gotta go with the tests and sometimes you see that's why we say analytics is good. But when you're in a game you know sometimes those analytics they may help you make a decision but ultimately if garrett cole is going you know he's got ninety six pitches and he's in the eighth inning and tells you that you know pitched ninety six to pitch hundred and eight is hasn't been good for him in his career. I'm just giving you a hypo- hypothetical example assault therefore forum taking him out as opposed to say aguirre cole. How are you feeling. You feel like you've throw ninety six pitches you feel like you're spent actually getting a real live answer from him in an honest answer from him and if he says no i feel great all right you know what screw the analytics putting them back out there. Because what i've seen today. Is this guy to go back out for another inning and continue his quest to try to get a complete game. And that's to me is where the analytics is fine. You know it and you know what you have in the bullpen. And you know what you have coming up from the other team. But i also want my manager. I want my coach. I want my hockey coach. I want my basketball coach to know exactly what he's seeing and allow his experience to make those decisions in the heat of battle. Which i think is where the the coaches really do make their money. Garrett cole got up to one hundred nine pitches on sunday and one of that was actually going through my head like wow. I'm surprised that they are allowing this to happen. At this point. I guess just the feel of the game where he was and monday early. In the season plus plus they. They knew if he was going to throw that many pitches they knew that this was a game that they had to have or at least that's the way they felt about your of course and they understand what's happening now. I know they do now. I just to me. The downplaying. It is is not the way to go. I know overreacting going to the point where it's like of their dawn. Terrible the not gonna make the playoffs. They don't feel that. That's that's insane but i mean five games under five hundred is an. It's an annoying. Hold the climb out. Even though you are still fifteen games into the season. I mean you got and if they win. Let's just say the knicks the next one six in a row. They are now officially the hottest team in the nba. Because boston lost last night. So if if the yankees a four game winning streak that one game under five hundred. I understand i mean so. It's not like the end of the world and they can do it starting tonight though they're going to have to do it starting to thank you eventually. They will eventually. I don't think for one minute that brian cashman isn't scouring major league baseball looking for the things that they feel are necessary to help them get over the hump and get this thing going the right way if it's not if it's not just for the guys in the locker room already so they'll be changes and maybe one of the big changes may earn hicks needs a couple of days off. Y'all maybe just needs to sit and rest and relax. You know whatever's bothering him. Whatever whatever it may be. Maybe he just needs time off. Yeah and i'm not saying we're out of uniform. I'm saying in uniform. Maybe as a pinch hitter or something else. Just just let them relax for a minute. And let them grapple with whatever he's grappling with whether it's what's happening min- minneapolis or whatever. Just give them a break and then when he comes back hopefully he'll get his mojo back and he'll be the player that they paid him to be. I don't know it's it's a weird deal. It's baseball as a hundred game. One hundred sixty two games. I know it's a long season and we're not used to this. Because last year in inhabit or an april toot. We have to remind ourselves what it's like data hundred and sixty two game season because it's been a long time. I don't think really. Honestly when i when i think about the pressure these athletes and stuff and think about your personal life and i think moving and all the crap going on and trying to cable setup and tv's and and You know you don't have a garage. You can get stuff in your basement now and all that crap that you've gone through over the last one. I thought i think you've really handled it very well. Thank you but you haven't brought it to work. You haven't let it distract you. You've been focused. Laser focused laser focused. But i could just imagine your day in beautiful bucolic town of savings just all the things that you're dealing with right now your must see. Yeah thank you. I appreciate that. That's a high compliment coming from you. And i will remain. Laser focused every single day. Talking about our right. it's the morning show with boomer. Esiason and greg g. analogy boomer and geo more number by stress'll is available at stictly furniture and mattress visit shop. Stictly dot com to restless. That's right what is stress sounds. Good to me. It's awesome is what it is. That's right all right very good like me to do this for tv. Brian cashman style on zone for people who can't see jerry he's doing the classic zoom up. The nose face situation which brian cashman was yesterday. Not everybody's good at zoom as we are jerry but yeah that was pretty funny nor do i want to see myself like that. So yeah you got yankees braves tonight. yankees are five and ten. The braves are seven and nine. Jamieson town faces. Charlie morton so pregame coverage on the fan after carton and roberts five fifty five and the game coverage on sports radio sixty six. Wfan am ronald kuni. Junior day to day with the abstract has four brian. Cashman one of you guys asked the question right off the top like why why come out and talk to the media. Yesterday here was cash. Visit me scarring. Now is an off day. They'll want wanna run and hide from it. One acknowledged officer disappointing play. We mentioned five and ten five game losing streak having played while the tampa obviously not what they expect. We're really disappointed in how we started this season. He says he understands hitters. Haven't hit but they will visual below average performances. Those get corrected. We believe over time and i would like to thank you g than any time. I hear the two words below average. I can't get charley casserly out of my mind. Below average exactly As for the star now we know garrett cole has been good but they've had issues with the starting pitching beyond that. Of course starters will get online and get us that distance in and get us that consistently good performance. Every five days just hasn't happened on the outset not much length so far from starting pitching and if anybody thought that brian cashman was gonna come out yesterday and say aaron boone. You fired. well that was wrong. Don't eat can do within his power saw and we don't give them any power so he's not the one putting the lineup. He's just there talking to the media. So i don't have to. That is true. Now tying all this together you've got the medicine chicago playing the cubs tonight and yet seinfeld on with the summer yesterday. He's a met fan as we know. He's not exactly crying for the yankee fan. Do feel sympathetic to them as met fans when things aren't going well we're fine. We're used to it. But the yankee fan has doesn't have that. has no What do we call it. resilience well not used the tough time. No resilient wow. I kinda know what. He's saying resilience by points. At yankee fans like seinfeld too you gotta be careful right. Remember didn't michael jordan say republicans buy sneakers to. That's right. yes you're talking about like a huge fan base here going after them. yeah. I mean he kinda. I know where. He's coming from in the sense of yankee fans. When it's bad for yankee fans it feels so much worse. Because they're not supposed to be bad. Where the mets fan we have. We are callous. That this point we've seen it on the field off the field. It's just been a joke for most of our fandom. So i get that but yeah you're right you gotta watch out. I will say as a met fan. I don't remember the last time i heard met player. Say that i'm not playing a game. Goes ahead soreness yeah. I've never heard that. I didn't do that until this year. I'm sure we can find one. And i thought for sure after listening to you. Yeah that aaron judge was going to be out for six weeks pending an mri. They play for the nets boomer. By many yankee fans on up. That said i think he's probably it. I think you amplified it. Okay well yeah. That's because of the history stretch track record right track record. That's what it is. What's the back of the baseball card. Says a track record. yeah backward. Baseball guard says that he misses a lot of games. Exactly wranglings fifty games in taiwan walker. Jake tonight and chicago be lovely thirty six degrees at first pitch light snow in chicago today. A stupid Also from yesterday the dodgers lost the mariners four three cardinals over the nationals twelve five giants blank the phillies to zip and you add the race. They went again.

They have him. You got joe harris. You got the andre jordan who got a d. n. p. last game. They've got bodies. But i mean good lord. Bruce brown will be there. I'm sure but it is man. It's a struggle right now to get healthy bodies on the floor for them. So whatever their thirty. Eight and nineteen The knicks are thirty one and twenty seven. They take on the hornets who are twenty. Eight and twenty eight accepted the six game winning streak and they're not tied with boston for fifth in the east because the celtics had their six game winning streak come to an end. They lost to the bulls. One zero two to ninety six warriors. Get forty nine from steph. Curry all goes ten of seventeen from and they trailed twelve. Nothing in a blink. Last night they come back. They beat the seventy sixers. Did the warriors one. Oh seven ninety six carriages on some incredible hair. Then you had. What was probably the game of the night a double overtime game between the nuggets and the grizzlies and your boy yokich with a big game and big shot to yokich three three. They wound up winning this game. One thirty nine one thirty seven yokich forty seven points fifteen rebounds and nine assists by the won the mvp last night jerry. That's what i think pretty. I met a lot of people. Have them right up there. Pretty good last night for sure. And then you had the suns beat the bucks in overtime. That could have been a game night to. I suppose one twenty eight. One twenty-seven devon booker had twenty four. The go ahead free throw with point three left on the clock off a a jump. Shot from the corner here. Janas cuco dealing with leg cramps throughout especially towards the end last play. He happened again But the time you know you don't know what it is might be club ideas thing doesn't seem like it's anything but we will certainly keep an eye on that as phoenix get boy. Phoenix is really good as they continue to win and win and win. The heat. beat the rockets one. Thirteen ninety one kendrick nunn had thirty in. The jazz knocked off the lakers. One eleven ninety seven solo. Lebron still anthony davis in that game For the lakers rangers and islanders face off at the coliseum. Tonight kors big game for both clubs and you got the devil skating in pittsburgh sharks forward. Patrick marleau made history last night. And i'll just say this way. Move over wayne randazzo you tell me g if in twenty twenty one dan rostenkowski doesn't sound like it's nineteen twelve as gives us the call marlow lined up against patchy ready. The puck is dropped and history is officially made. Has now all time. Games played leader in national hockey league history. The i milo lined up against patrick ready. The puck is dropped and history is officially may. I'm sorry it has music. I'm sorry eddie. Gimme a three to one model lined up against panther ready. The puck is dropped and history is officially may pardo has now the all time games played leader in hockey. History is stupid anyway. The president roosevelt at the front throws them a buck. Unbelievable everything's working out marlowe now has the record. The great depression is over and the boys are back home now. I gotta find find a goal of his because that was obviously last night they lost the game so cried afterwards and he did. He talked about how much he loves hockey income into the rink. And everything. I bet you if you play boomer would cry to know. I did cry last night. Watching this ukrainian really. Yeah guys spit as you know. The half of his entire life in the national hockey league did ask. What does it mean to keep showing up or something. He's loves the game. A hockey man doesn't like it. Okay i will certainly look for that if i can find anywhere. That was dan rucinsky on sharks radio so that his one thousand seven hundred sixty eight career climbed into his studebaker. You never know Former niner chief washington quarterback alex smith announced his retirement yesterday. Patrick mahomes spoke glowingly of him. I see what the injury that he had to be able to come back elitist team into the playoffs to show the type of man that he is type of team team player that he is and and I'm just. I'm just grateful for the time that i had with them. That that really developed me to be the quarterback that i am today andy. Reid was one of his coaches is just terrific. He's just a heck of a person at a great career played a number of so many years here with a different teams and everywhere he went. He made them better. He was the number one. Pick in the two thousand five. Nfl draft And so that career has come to an end and finally an arrest warrant has been issued for seahawks defensive end. Alden smith come on really battery charge. That occurred around new orleans on saturday. I've not seen any details on that right. yes that was. That was the story. So far the morning show with boomer esiason in gregg giannotti boomer and geo president george bush. I figured it might be one of the president's. Actually that's be president. Bill clinton now we talk about george w. h. w. h. w. george h w bush and then bill clinton all's yet all right. It's pretty good. I can't compete with that. But i got close last night. I did. this happened last night. This is the most famous person michael jordan. michael jordan. Honored your name. Well yeah. I mean you know we've had the same agent okay. I mean publicly golf tournaments and things yes of course for for usa. He's pretty famous without a doubt muhammad ali. Oh that almost that's gotta take the cake with thing so you got a lot of guys. I don't have these experiences so when it happens for me it's a big deal. I would still think president bach. The rocks up there rocks up there. You have a tremendous amount of names. And by the way. I you know i say your name all the time. I don't count. No you do okay but you were actually the most famous person to have uttered my name before last night. You were the guy. If someone said who's the most famous person ever say your name. I would say boomer size interviewed a lot of people that have said your name full name now. Not my full name. You know coach cower but does you gregg naughty. Does he say that. No jill sims not on the level of what. I'm about to play okay. So last night on. Wfan steve somers. Has jerry seinfeld on and jerry seinfeld. Heard something that. I said as steve for clarity on it. Steve didn't know and he started just talking and talking and talking but the point is this moment for me was a big deal. Like i'm having deja vu right here here. Let me here. And i'll tell you why sniffed of in the morning Gregg giannotti telling a story about me calling in and that he was baby producing for you one he get that whole story. What was that one. Well he he was base for. Steve is it gives. The wrong story doesn't always talking about. And then jerry later goes no. I think greg said something about interaction that me and him had on the phone that he didn't like so he went back and said my name my first name again so the story is and i know you remember because i've said it before when same deal seinfeld on with summer many years ago probably two thousand and seven range in there. He calls up. I answer the phone because on the guy who answers. The phone is a producer. And i say hey jerry. We are thrilled to have. Were so excited here to be able to talk to you. Steve's excited everybody's excited and he responds to me on the phone he goes. So is steve or not. That's what he said very flat very condescending right like i don't need to talk to you is steve. They're not so. And then i used to compare that to the larry. David interaction with larry. David was on with summers and he was like. Oh this is great. I'm so happy and everything else and he was so nice to me so that was the story that seinfeld was asking for jerry was asking for last night. That summers had no idea right. But that was it now. He also went on and said he wishing knew that interaction. What it was because because he said that's where comedy comes from moments like that like misunderstandings and things. And that's why i wanted to know about it. The comedic genius i am. I understand bottle. And by the way the reason i said that i feel like i have deja vu is because jerry seinfeld once said craig's name. Yeah on steve. Somers you know who is that. The guy in the morning Credit card and now here. I am years later and i feel like the same things happening all over again. He's not saying anything about you. Know we we. He and i talked. Oh you did. Yeah we talked and he goes look straight guy always got sixty percent of the gate. I totally agree with him on that. So cool. I'm sure it was a cool moment for craig. It's a cool moment for me. Jerry seinfeld says you name he says you listening. So i don't know if at some point greg geneidi. Yeah see there you go now. So what do i do from here. Because he was legitimately interested in knowing that story out so he was asking and then he didn't get the right answer and he asked again. He said i'd love to know because this comedy comes from. This is what he said. Where do i go from here. Do we just leave it alone to. We hope that. here's me. Tell the story again. Do you have a contact for him. So i can tell them the story. Where do we go from here. I have a guy that i that you could have an email to a guy to the key to the guy. The guy who's got a double guy guided guided guy guy may get the second guy and then eventually will get on the first guy. I them provide the guy the second guy. There's a guy that he has. Its has mango. Yeah now is this a worthy reach out moment because he feels like he was actually interested. They at least to me. It sounded like if you played the second half of that. But steve just goes on and on greg if you played the second half of it where he says i'd love to know those. I'd love to know what that interaction was. Yeah he have just been saying that on the air and he was like jail here it who go enlist do it and he did you he could have just been saying say inst- totally pooh poohing this on you. I mean he brought up by s- go to the go to the second part of that. After steve's done with own anything and then was larry and two day and i Invention team and then steve awkwardly brings up at the very end to after he hangs up. We'll rear brick not your thing. He brings us the whole thing about the email again. Like why is he bringing this up again. You can ruin it. She's and don't bring it up again. So yeah after. Steve goes on for like a minute. He goes. Jerry says that's not one of them was an interaction at greg. Said he had on the phone with him. Yeah and i don't know. I i don't know that one i don't know but i do remember a night in nineteen seventy two when i was in san francisco. Judge with a no but i thought i heard greg say something that there was some kind of something that i said to him as a producer that he didn't care for. I don't know because that love these things you know. This is where we pick somebody from from these little Tweaks and and misunderstanding. Okay so i love these things and twice asked about. I think this is worthy for reach out. Reach out reach out reach out worthy for reach out. Hey you know attached audio clip jerry. Said he loved to know. If you'd like to hear the story. I could tell them. The story on the great thing is yet around your the funny guy. He's the funny in reach guys can talk this out and make something into it. Yeah that's what i think right. That's what i think. But he was. There is no two ways about the two worst phone interactions. I had with famous people. Chris carter and jerusalem. Yeah i was probably jersey greg. I i'm not saints. Not in that moment jerk as regular as got with us very friendly to me on the phone producer when i put on the furrow totally friendly and very sad not denying any of that. I'm just saying in that moment that day. Maybe i was. He had a bad day. He had a bad moment. Somebody have a bad day or they can have a bad day. I'm just telling you that was my experience. I have had experiences with gasoline. I can't remember who they are. Where where when i said you know we were in a commercial break so i was really trying to kill time to may not make. It seem so long so we'll boomer said this and dead air and just like all right hold on. I know some people. Don't wanna talk to you. They don't wanna talk to the help. That's gonna come to the producers of i call into another programmer show. You're a different breed of person. When i understand the radio mechanism and how the producers and important part of every show. Yeah when they show up who would have thought that. And i've said many times the nicest guy ever in those interactions bill. Belichick would've thought it. Looks like the biggest jerk. He was the nicest guy but our was jerked out. Those are miserable misunderstand. Tommy that was also it was has been unfortunate interactions with bill cowher. It's no. I don't think it's on him. I think they've been fortunate. Interactions yeah right well. He's calmed down a little bit. He understands you. He knows he goes in that house. Awkward right yep. He's awkward right. Yeah but i can understand from jerry. Seinfeld's perspective he's calling up. You probably just wanna do this thing with summers anyway. He agreed to do it. He knows he's going to be on with for an hour. And here. I am like overexcited. Producer jerry seinfeld cool. And he's like. I didn't sign up for this. I'm here to talk to steve. You probably went over a little bit of polly did and and that probably got him. I get off the coming thing is. It's unbelievable look. Ask diane and cranford. Dan what's happening. Hey guys warranted. I first of all you guys make me laugh every morning on my way to work. Thank you you're welcome. Thank you and so probably fan always have been my husband's a mets fan. He always has been and you know. Yes we're resilient. That's the word to jerry seinfeld. You're not. I know exactly right. We've we've seen ups and downs. I made a huge aaron. Boone fan I still say we should have traded sanchez and kept real mind. But that's another story but anyway you know everything happens in cycles. I you know they're good call patients which nobody these days and just you know they're gonna hit their stride eventually. Hopefully sooner or later you know it would be nice. The nice phone call very nice practice goal or reasonable phone. Call that. that's very nice. Diane so yeah well you know say what do you want us to send a message to seinfeld or anything on your behalf. Well please let him know that we're gonna get through this and we still have more world series rings that's true that's for sure thanks dive yet. And that's that's the thing that is not going to change. We're not gonna arguing about that talk about those things. Got the hammer like back in time to bring that out in nineteen eighty-six for crying sixty nine the amazing mets. Yeah well when. I reach out to a seinfeld. Diane i will indeed bring up your point as well because i love reach out and explain to him the story that he was dying to know because he was dying tonight story. Joey what's happening. Hey what's going boys was happening. Joey what's going on. Come on pull any joey. It's i don't know what else doing over there. But it's quite in whitestone. What's up giant. You got it's glenn. It's not joe bora. Here's the issue. I got big issues with you. Bring on Glen joe whatever the hell you name is a season i understand it for you to come on and openness show and defend brian cashman for what's gone on at what's going on a pathetic. We know the good that he's done. But you cannot sit here and defend. Brian cashman when he brings in the likes of k. Bruce chris carter lyle over bay. Brian roberts on and it's more than overlays the good in more than the good. He bought one either for georgia. Oh nine he has sick michael team in the two thousand he won with. Are you kidding me. Glen glide over bed i mean how long have you been sitting on our i mean for every one of those we can give you the ones that boomer brought up with. It's the document or shallow or void last four years. Yeah i mean going back the and by the way you know brian cashman. Also i don't know maybe a mistake. You may not be a mistake it all depends on how the aforementioned free agent turns out or trade turns out stanton tarot. That's a bad one. I'm sorry it is but what about garrett cole. The yankee fan wanted garrick klay got him. And that's great. Remember they wanted cease about the he got him. He was very good right. Aj brunette was terrible. Jacoby ellsbury was terrible is that he brings in didi gregorius in trade. How was very good. I mean we can go back and forth look labor more as a role chapman situation that was pulled off very well worked out well. Glaciers slipped here the last year. How man you're on the job that long as the yankees general manager you can have a bunch of good moves and a bunch of bad moves. I still say it's about their starting pitching staff that to me because they heading well and we all know. It's going to end up coming sooner on the regular season but in the postseason they panthers struggle. They know that in the yeah but do they because they don't change anything. You take a team. That would win one hundred games every year. But you have to win. You're the yankees you have to win championships. You know that. And they haven't won enough they haven't i mean the last time that we saw them win was over a decade ago. And when you're that team and you've had that much success in your winning that many games and you're not winning the postseason. The fans are going to have a problem with all right so as they should. I always say you want fire ambon. Some fans do some fans. Wanna get rid of brian cashman. Who are the replacements. Gimme gimme the replacement. Say you want. Catch say get rid of this guy and then not have a replacement in mind. Sure i understand. And they're not gonna fire earned bone in the middle of the season. You know depending on how this goes. I don't know of catherine's future is in doubt at the end of the year. I'm not so sure. By the way when all these changes used to be made it was because they had an impetuous owner who was a maniac. And you know he won back to the well of billy martin. How many times. Yeah i mean and and how crazy all that was so that has not who the yankees are anymore. They are not that impetuous owner you know but they will go out and get the top guy if they get them and when they got stanton he was thought to be the top guy. Coming off an mvp. When they got gary cole. He was the top guy on the on the list. Did they miss out on a manny. Machado they miss out on a few other guys. They miss out on. Trevor bauer. i you know who knows. I mean after a while they have to three hundred million dollar players in our team now and maybe more if guys start paying now aaron judge and another. Mvp season. then you talk about another guy in the world of sports or has to be young cheap talent that is actually out kicking their contracts and for the most part the yankees have had that they've had young guys said about kicked their contracts and that's one of the reasons why they've won now all this all these great young players if they don't know hopefully they'll start hitting in are going to end up getting to that point where you're going to have to make a decision as to whether or not you want to pay on the morning show with boomer esiason and greg boomer and geo that eddie's dropped play it just doesn't matter it just doesn't matter we keep saying it's about the nets and the yankees for the nets. Durant's not play tonight harms not playing tonight. Kyri matter kyrie might be around. You might not be around. But it just doesn't matter it the yankee start out five and ten but it's one hundred sixty two game season and five games under five hundred and figuring out just matter but when does it. When does it matter when they're eliminated from postseason. Well we all know that the nets are going to make it to the postseason playoff. So that's when it matters for them and that's when they'll be healthy all the guys who miraculously show up above hopefully guy show up for all the games. No personal problems that hit during the playoffs. But that's one matters for them and what matters for the yankees is when we get into june and july. The dog days of summer start and where they are at that time and then the second half of the season and whether or not brian cashman. They're gonna get severino back. But whether or not. Brian cashman adds so the team moose. Some pieces around and believe you believe me when i say this. He's active as anybody in baseball. And he will be active again. He's already been active. He's already brought in outdoor and he did that because he knew we had a problem at first base. That's right and the act on it. Really quickly jay. Bruce retired now. Was that a eventually jay. Bruce was at a position he basically made the team out of. The you know out of training camp simply. Because luke got hurt. Yeah no i understand. I do think that there are things that are going on. Now that you can project into the future and say these aren't great signs. I mean it's not like totally doesn't matter. I think it does now. The question about whether hardin kyri in rank play with one another in the postseason. I think we all agree. It'll be fine. that'd be fine. They're going to be fine right all right so remember the story about the swingers. The swinger rumor in my Newtown yes not but it's not town. It's the rumor. It's not a swinger where the great jack cohn is from. Yeah well it's not. You didn't know 'cause not true. Well now we found out. It's not true. Well maybe you're not a participant. It's just not true but talk to me and ten years. Yeah hasn't been there long enough. You just got the every neighbor comes up. It says they've never heard that before. They say that's usually what happens. I don't know anything about it for a long time. One guy even said to me. Hey i consider me and my wife good looking people and we've never been proposition you think about. What are they looking for sure. Yeah that's how it started. They know about the signs to put out there so they can attract the group. They had never heard that before. But i drive by that guy's house every day and he is not put up either. Read the chairs or the pineapple door knocker which apparently are the two signed that you are a swinging household. That's here swinging household people wearied. The swinging house mo- swingers. Probably you have young children thinking nothing that you're going to be swinging with young or with a young child era with a three year old yet. Not yet you're you're still probably years way. It's all about freshening up right over to grandma's tonight we're having a neighbors over for some sex. It's probably not going to happen right. Yeah so anyway. I told you that. I got a pineapple door. Knocker in the mail just showed up at the door so that was a little freaky to me and the man who sent that door. Knocker allegedly is on the line. Right now chris and lake grove. What's up chris. can you hear me. We could hear you what's going on in your it funny story the wiki move in I actually my office is around the block from your new home. And i happen to be walking my toddler that friday and you came out to greet other contractors something. I didn't want to bother you. So i i sent actual real housewarming gift And then three days later since boomer kept talking about the swingers and the pineapple door knockers. I figured i'd said one is again against both with a gift card but unfortunately at c. didn't include that so I thought it was hilarious. Yesterday i walked away from the show for ten minutes. I was talking to a friend of mine. Who's like did you hear. Somebody sent geel pineapple. So i i recorded the show so i had to go back on. Tv or last night they watch it over and over was just in tears laughing. Well thanks kris allen. I said i wanted to call in this morning but the actual gift should be arrive in the apple. You got me something else too much man. I feel i'm humboldt. It's very nice. But i have to do any of that. Being essential worker working through the pandemic. You guys got the smile on my face. It's the least. I can do appreciate that chris and this is how it all starts. Yeah this is this guy reaches out says you some gifts next thing you know. Boom bang having beers mapping alone. Trying to get through to the show for years even when it was you and craig pine door we'd take. I would have sent one a long time ago. Yeah we appreciate that chris. that's great. that's awesome. So if you have chris if you heard about that and save a little i never heard about it at all but since you guys started talking about it every every time of driving around any. I read adirondack chant. Something telling you. Hey well chris next time. You're in the neighborhood. Stop and say hello right. We'll take care of your wife with you. No no no. No no don't do that. I don't know no we're okay. I'll come on swing label. What is going on nothing going. There's no swing man stuff going on no way there must be. What do you mean there must be this randomly. Come from almost guy. This guy said that he heard the show when he sent it as a gag. While that know that. Chris climb that there was but there are other people that climb that there was but obviously i stuff. That's going on with you right now. Unbelievable strangers stuff like the biggest thing that saves us crickets now. I it's been the everybody's been nice. That's all i got swinging has been very nice. I told you i. I think i underestimated the neighborhood chatter about this. A lot of chatter now. I mean you've been on this show far longer than me. So your exposure to the audience is is greater. You made a move bradley beach do you. Was it similar to this. And the way that many people would come up to you and many people would talk to you and welcome you to the neighborhood. Yes it was very welcoming very nice. Yeah we also highlighted the bradley beach facebook page right and how active you are on that and you know how you get people involved in fighting crime down there in bradley beach yeah. I recently started trouble on their again. Which i thought i was doing a good thing but people took it as a bad thing really. Yeah i. I noticed as i was walking. My dog that A lot of the car inspection stickers were outdated on the cars all all i did was kids you that i said just a heads up i said i i know we all forgot during the pandemic but a lot of your cars are our people took it like. I was telling the police to go find these cars which i wasn't us what you're doing. I had a handful people that really appreciate it said. Oh my gosh. I completely forgot other people. Were under the assumption that there was no problem since the pandemic to get your car inspected not true cell. I thought i was doing everybody a favor. People took it as i was. Douche manouche did anybody say great. Now i gotta take it like. Go back to the thread and say no. Hey you know right. They were not those people. Were not happy if you think there's somebody in save that goes around. Looks at the car inspection stickers. No of course anybody anywhere does why are you looking at thicker. I don't know why. I look at it and i just so many people were like two years old. I'm like what's going on here. Maybe these people forgot is one of the reasons why the raising tolls all over the place because people are paying for their inspections getting their cars. Als over the chicken tire pressure too far from the curb. Don't you popping hoods seeing the oil level pulling out the dipstick check catalytic. Come on now. I really thought when. I noticed that i will make a mental note because this is going to help some people out. That's the way i looked at all right. It was helping people out so now do you know. Is there a sable facebook page. I don't know facebook. Alto on those these things. He's all about the community involvement. I totally eliminated facebook from really. Yeah i'm just slowly getting back into twitter slowly. Jeez gb and merrick gb. What's happening eight boys doing all right man. What's going on. listen. I just want to bring everybody down to reality here for a second okay. Okay first of all this slide that the yankees are on. This has nothing to do with cashman. I know we gotta bring in some of these knucklehead yankee fans that don't understand that nothing to do with cashman this has to do with the players stepping up and starting to get into group and such a really hit. It's really feeling cashman has done everything. He can And does every year before to to get his what players. He could get at the best price at the best time and he always succeeds with that. Yeah he's been there for a million years which we love. And i hope he's there for another million but you know this is not lame cashman. He's bringing in players that need to produce. He really is so this we this whole perception of let's all like you know. Go crazy and blame cash. And and that's it. You get gio. Is he getting. Is he going to leave at the end. That's insane. no. I don't know. I said i said if it depends. Let's say this year just hypothetically what we do but hypothetically this is a very disappointing year for the yankees. That will be a question for the first time ever think. Gb would would be. Maybe they go in a different direction if it ended up being a very disappointing. See that i'm gonna gb. I just don't see that. I think there. Brian cashman solidly within the steinbrenner family. The front office of the yankees. The guy that's run the baseball operations and they do. They have brought up some of their own players. That have either been hurt. Or you know have shown flashes of brilliance. They develop some of his own and not just that he's always going out and bringing in free agent. So i know the yankee fans upset. It's kind of fun being in the middle of all this but Eventually it's going to turn around eventually. Just walked my words on this day that maybe maybe in two months from now we're talking about the yankees fighting for first place each morning show with boomer esiason and greg naughty boomer and geo yeah i mean listen. This happens in the shadows. Apparently so we just don't know. But if i come across it i'll be honest if i do get approached. I will be honest. If i see adirondack chairs. But i'm telling you right now this is this is all rumor. There's no substance. They're my neighbors have been great the been absolutely great daddy. O swinging evan o. Walk with the nets game on in the background. He gave it to me. I i gotta tell you that's fantastic. That's the only way you can get aroused as he puts on the nets game in the background. That's his that's his fluffer. Rei hey jerry got an update for brought to you. By flagging anthem. Spring clothing collection visit flag and anthem dot com. Look at me look sexy. I am look at my body. I've never said that once yankees gm. Brian cashman with the media on monday. We know this team has not played. Well they're five and ten. They've lost five straight over the weekend embarrassing against the embarrassing friday night to the is being thrown on the field and so he was asked about that incident and the team was wondering what your reaction was to sing. Dance throw based on the field and do you believe this frustration building up for years. Now i know. I don't think. I think i don't see. Add a correlation to that terrible game that we played. That's part one part two he gets to the actual ball throwing or most if somebody wants to throw something on the field and and they better expect to be arrested. there's no place in any Scenario like that and then the final part of his answer and it was a long answer. was about fans being unhappy with the team the last few years. It doesn't really make sense to me. how a team obviously is making the playoffs in the year in year out basis in in a legitimate contender for world championship title. I don't know how that question really is relevant. Or just doesn't it doesn't make sense to me. I was surprised with his answer. A question is irrelevant. Take that media is relevant. Of course it is. Yes i like. He's a little bit annoyed sensitive degrees. Yeah i would agree. Well the other thing too is kluber hasn't worked out no and that's a big one is he's supposed to be your your second starter and that's a big one. Aaron hicks is not playing. Well that's a big one. You know jay. Bruce was was a band aid. That didn't they just finally rip off. I'll i'll make this elite. How big one who is playing well gio or shell. That's a good question who is playing. Well the the bullpens been okay when there's played well when he's yeah he was a guy that nobody wanted back out on. Bring him back yoka. That's yes that isn't he does. He says they'll be fine. Disappointing clearly at Where currently stand but we know better days are ahead and he made it very clear. It's not all on the manager. We're all in the same boat with performance anywhere. Our record is reflective relevant reflective of Of organization obviously errands a piece of that As as an eye so take taken response a peace as- is that what he's a piece of that tall. Maybe they're swingers. What who knows very possible. You can't say with one hundred percents so two game series opens with the braves tonight. The braves are seven nine. The yankees five and ten. Tyrone and charlie morton are the starters pre game coverage on the fan after carton and roberts right at five fifty five and then we will shift over to the nets and the yankee game will be on sports radio. Sixty six wfan a. Mets are in chicago to play the cubs tonight cubs out to a six nine. Start at the medicine first place in the east and one guy that simply lows. This team is comedian. Jerry seinfeld you guys played the stuff with gio a little while ago seinfeld. Summer's on the fan. You bring on a guy. Like mr lehne door and dom smith we already had an stroman. We already had an all of a sudden you see the swirling smile culture. This is a powerful powerful element in in the chemistry of winning now swirling smile culture you. Yeah i would say that the jerry seinfeld ball. I don't think so. Maybe maybe maybe he was probably like allie probably had a little league season where he went hitless alley. That's right you had that little link season where you went hitless. Actually he was thirteen boomer. He wasn't seven. Listen sometimes You hit the ball. Well is just someone. They're all season. Or maybe you don't hit the ball at all. No i definitely hit the ball. It just you know. They say hit him where they ain't unfortunately every time i hit him. It was quite bit fortunate. We don't play softball anymore. But you know you were coming off your best see. I thought you were coming out of your beth's best season ever i agree. How'd you think this interview went overall al with Jerry seinfeld and steve listen to it on my right into today. Listen to the podcast. I felt awkward at times because steve. I feel awkward person. And he's really awkward. Because you know awkward. I know walking when i was in my car by myself in the dark and i felt uncomfortable. Times was because of that whole thing that the hash out about their falling out alleged falling out yes and and i think sometimes steve just followed up. A question that didn't have to do with jerry's previous answer would just be like a random question. What was the falling between. The two of those was. Because steve reached out to jerry. Get somebody else's number or something. Larry david's email. But i but i understand jerry protecting that right well. Jerry said. He had forgotten that. Stephen larry had gotten together before and he just thought that steve was reaching out saying. Hey can you make the contact between me. And larry david via remembered that they had a previous interview he might have given up the email and he also said he didn't remember even sending that response of. That's not what friends do responding to jerry right. But i will also say this because every now and then now and again i will get asked for. Somebody's contact invo. Before i give out that contact info i will contact that other person and say hey so and so al dukes a demo al dukes once your contact impose it. Okay if i give it to him no okay. It's generally no actually when it comes to al. But but i have to then kind of stick up for alan. He's good guys. good dude. he's just. You know making sure that we have your number so when we call you. You're ready and unavailable. That's yeah so where i got uncomfortable is when you knew this was a private interaction. Email interaction between jerry and steve. And then steve said i hadn't brought it up on the air until the morning show talked about it on the air and then jerry said we'll how did they find out that's when i was is because jerry's implying you're running your mouth about private. Email interactions around the office. That's when i felt uncomfortable. And then then wildlife like was hurt. And i must have told the producer about how long was heard from this exchange and that producer. Probably told some money but he didn't name anybody any names specifically but we think we know who it is. So who's league. There's a lot of leaks around this place. That's why that's why you are the king of scuttle but around here. It's like the you get everything all comes to you. I'm the the reservoir fan. I'm telling you like it. Never would come. The craig and craig would be digging for it all over the place but nobody would ever come to him was scuttled. And i think it's because he was an outsider. Yeah he's an outsider and he also would give up the person's name not thinking that it was a problem. The deal keeps things quiet. Like he doesn't say so and so told me he'll just say he heard it from. That's true. never give up a source. Because i get no scuttle but nobody comes to me to tell me scuttle but you're boomer though that's not true. I was an outsider. What i wanna know why. I've i've been here since ninety three but for some reason as an outsider. People look at you and they're not gonna come and bring you scott. You came in here at the top of the food chain. If you come in at a lower part and work your way up. it's different. I understand that's why geos homegrown right you do get high level scuttle bought though you do. Yeah that's true you get you get like the the bosses coming tell you stuff level scuttle but it's not the same as thought no matter the street's got up it's more impactful. Sure i'll give you example small example. You knew that the company name was changing before all of us. You knew that okay. That was one that's true. I was high level scuttle. But i had no idea about that has very high level. Yeah i mean like the scuttle. But i get is like when mcmonagle gets two shifts in a row. You know my skull. You're getting scuttle butt top or what producer hates what host. Yeah i don't get that you get. I know say that stuff is so much more interesting stuff that i get. You get when you win this craig coming back. Yeah those things right. Yeah for everybody else right. That's the yeah when when The architect came back you. That's the high level scuttle. But you're you'll know who the new pd is before anybody else. I won't have that you'll have your reaction to that new which is bright board. Yeah i know really yeah. Stocks cheese socks. I'm just hear it. You know what's gonna happen early. There's a favorite by the way. They're yeah that's what i heard. That is a favourite timeframe. june is a favourite.

Oh what are you not. We just established. G doesn't say anything. I'm not gonna fault. Yeah just you gotta tell me and then it'll be fine. I won't say anything about tell anybody. I don't tell anybody i'm going to tell you got to just really. Yeah remember when you said that the architect was coming back. We never said a word about tight-lipped not a word. I felt like sharing that. With you guys because i knew that was important and i know that you guys all had relationship with them and that would be nice for you and be a feel good story on a feel good friday going into the weekend. I'll have to anybody slipping up. Yeah we'll just let you tell us friday then. Maybe i'll tell you friday. You gotta tell us now all right anyway. Yeah jerry anything anything.

Oh she thought she was. She's not going tonight so she was yelling at me yesterday. That if i go without her a she's upset about it mike. Why would you be upset about it. We root for different teams. Yes so i didn't know that part of it see. I thought that everybody was going. And you guys can have a nice night. We've gone and you guys understand they allegiances and everything else right. But if you're going to go to the game and then she's not going and she's not going to be happy about you being or not. I don't sit with anybody. We sit together. And i'm like why. Why wouldn't you though. I mean but why i mean like there's making sense a similar many years now had that many years i took her to ranger games. I know but things you'll look what happened and he and look what happened and you understand deep down you understand. The greatest thing that has ever happened ever happened when do so. That's that trumps everything. So why don't use winnie go to the game when he sleeps but she was at a game not that she she left early. You can't do that when she's a baby. We'll take jesse cars. Yeah but i know. You don't understand. I just i can't i just can't okay all right so i asked about. I said look guys. You haven't scored a lot of goals as late. And i don't know if you guys practice actually shooting at the net or just running into people i. I'm not really sure how you guys practice. Yeah so but of course tonight. I'm sure they'll be all over. The rangers rangers will be a hopefully doing what they normally do when the coliseum which should be good sure i think you need to go forget about everything else you know you spent your whole life making everybody else. Happy bright so. I think time for some utah. Yeah that's right meantime. I think it's time for some boomtime time from utah. Go by yourself sit. There cheered whatever. You wanna do. Go by myself.

What what's that a trip to disneyworld with winning. Really what are you going well. She's a baby now. I mean this is a future thing. Okay i'm like wait a minute. Hold on mike. And that's where sydney attacked winnie the pooh by the way. Oh hand about. Her name is rona windsor. But the winnie thing is great. Because sydney growing up loved winnie the pooh and is in windsor. Wear match from the perfect. Look at that. Just absolutely perk i. Let's go to chris in port. Jeff station what's up chris. Hey what's going on fellas. What's going on with you what's happening. Hey so I called in because Yesterday show you guys. Were talking about all the weeds. Smells on the la. Yeah so Listen i've been smoking fillet ten years and My job got me going up and down the ally all day long. i'm. I'm one of those guys that smoking weed on the la should be doing that. Why the hell are you doing that. You putting everybody else in danger. Don't you feel yeah. Let me make a point all right so when you people that smoke cigarettes if you're not a cigarette smoker you take a drag of a cigarette and that head rush. Hits you real hard when you've been smoking cigarettes for a long time. You don't feel anything so me as a smoker for the last ten years it doesn't affect my ability to drive at all really. Yeah it doesn't change anything in you. Then why are you doing. This is a bad habit. Why do people smoke cigarettes. And having their addicted to it you know. I mean he's not addictive but it's make things well it also is a gateway but you know you do what you wanna do with your life but if i ever run into you and your high. We're on the elliott going to punch you right in the face. Come on slate telling you right now come on. I always think about like if i get into an accident and cause some d. bag d. bag is either texting or weeding or drinking. I'm going to get out of my truck. And i'm going to house them. No of course things would be worse than after that because then it'd be salt and all everything else angry yeah people will be filming that thing and then boomer knocks out. Now i'm going to use alcohol's you ever go up on the sang total a lot since i moved. Yes act sagged the coast. That got me. Say this zagged coast yes. It's a parkway right. So and sounding out of east is on the southern state parkway heckscher spur and i'm getting up on the sagging tos sagged. Echoes i called. The second toast would be wrong so anyway. Whatever i'm going up there and there's a car that's like driving five miles an hour in the merge merging like so. You're coming off of the sunrise getting on the saddest. See go up awesome. I could see this person. I could tell that it was a woman looking at our phone as we're getting onto this merge line that's supposed to be fifty five miles an hour. I just tapping the back. Hey dummy let's go sure. Of course i wouldn't do that but yeah we'll give the dirty look. I should go passed. And you're like what are you doing. You know what i do. I do the farm. That's my that's my move by. See somebody doing something. I don't like down the window. And i give them one of the this handout to hear. What's obviously it'd be this hand. So what are we doing. It's one of the the god damn phone down. Yeah richie and value stream what's happening. Hey what's up guys. I insurance only three cards in the body shop. Some of these calls. When you get into that you can't you can't even breathe the weed smell so bad because it's like a week or so antibodies shop. It's unbelievable job. It'd be i get a look at the cost but it just e can't even don't inside the car and so bad but yeah when somebody's smoking cigarettes you go in their car stinks. I just can't believe there was a time when i was a kid that there was smoking and nonsmoking sections in restaurants and you can even smoke on an airplane. Well that's the thing. I used to get on an airplane and no re- smokers so i would sit in like ah if i was sitting at first class yet always tried to get the last role in first class and tell the people but i'm not a smoker and i do not want smokers next to me. So what is the thing. Now that we're gonna look at fifteen twenty years from now and say. I cannot believe that we were doing that. Because there's always something because back then it was like all right. Smoking non smoking non smoking police or smoking or the non-smoking sign is now up. The smoking sign is off. You're allowed to smoke now and you think back then go. That is the most asinine crazy thing i could ever think of in my life that you'd be on an airplane and people could just smoke cigarettes in their blows my mind flying tube so what i what is the thing now. Do you think. sometimes. I think meeting. I think that the amount of meat that we eat as a society. I feel like in twenty years from now guy. I cannot believe that we ate so much meat. That's something the pasta. And i am a meat eater i eat. I eat meat a lot i do. I'm a meat guy. It could be can't believe we used to use gasoline. Cars could be could be that too. You stopped at a gas station. You filled up the tank. That's crazy with liquid would be that. We put ten million people out of work perfect. Well no well. We re educated than the bill. Batteries become nuclear scientists but the people worked for the tobacco industry as well right. That's stolen industry as but it's not as thriving as much as i mean when you think about. How stupid is that the tobacco industry. Yeah no of course. Of course i mean all of the the vice industries and we look we. We read Gambling that is odd you know. So what can i tell you that is true you know. Could you believe that back in. Two thousand seven. Roger goodell's all. There's no way we're ever going to get moth and gambling. And we are in two thousand and twenty one and now. Now we're the draft is brought to you by draft. Kings meets the morning show with boomer esiason and greg boomerang are like the draft is gonna be there this time. Some of them are out. Trevor lawrence is not going to be there. I'm sorry okay guys will be in cleveland. And they'll do the. Are they going to be hugging goodell. That's a no. I i would imagine the nfl so worried about how all this comes off. Of course they own all my god. Everybody's gonna to wear masks. Everybody's you know not going to do. So they'll be out in cleveland but it'll be sort of a half asked situation i don't know will be totally happy past. I think they'll try to make it as soon as they can. But be interesting because everybody will be wearing masks and they're not going to be all be socially distant they're not going to be sitting in a green warning of that data other stuff. I don't don't get me wrong here. And i think this is the perfect time for this. There has been a lot of talk about the draft. And what's going to happen and we found out what the jets are going to do. And there's been a ton of buzz about the draft prior to the drip but now that we know the top of the. I'm feeling like we're heading towards a not. Nobody's but minimal buzz top half of the first round. I think those still be some trades being made. I think you're gonna see a lot of offensive guys off the board in the first eight or nine picks know. There's probably a couple of defensive backs that may get picked. There's it's not great for defensive lineman in this draft. Yeah early on. I should say there's a lot of offense of lyman. Lot of quarterbacks obviously wide receivers can't see i have to do to seattle. Yeah not a buzz. No buzz situation but a minimal buzz for the draft. Now that we know what's happening minimal. Buzz minimal boss. I don't know. I think the forty niners of buzz worthy because you don't know who they're going to take as their quarterback but it's got to be one of if it isn't quarterback we'll find out before that happens. I don't know i i'd come out. You know the falcons may trade out. The bengals probably gonna take penny sold the tackling the pics now dolphins. interestingly enough. they may trade out. Because somebody would want maybe jomar chase or somebody of that nature that and the dolphins maybe they can get another wide receiver a little bit later in the first round. That could be a possibility. Then there's also a couple of guys in the second round that are really going to be. I think outstanding wide receivers man. I wish we didn't know who the jets were picking. I wish they kept us in the dark. How much fun would that be about if they decided to go with justin feel. That's not going to happen. So why even talk about it. We know they're going with exact. Wilson would be just amazing if we just had jets added nine free knowing wind northernmost coached about thirty seven assistant coach. You know a lotta guys must be a lot of work over there. Yeah apparently i mean football. It's it's football. You think it's a little much and the giants have more coaches and i don't know what the hell are. All these guys doing. Don't you think more coaches mortar manage. More problems like mo money mo problems him. Big once famously. Says coaches mo problems. I i- ballot check always keeps it to a minimum in terms of coaching staff. Now the behind the scenes support staff. That's a whole nother story. And i think that's where a lot of these teams make the right decisions. And but i don't know oughta coaches on the sideline coaches and boxes and courtesy cars and gotta get everybody uniform. I miss a pain in the ass. What do you think the minimal salary of one of the coaches does every one of those coaches make six figures. Yes every one of them. I would say. So yes if think about all those coaches all making that plus the coordinators are making big money now. I know millions in some cases. Yes i would think that joe brady for carolina where sam darnold's going is probably north of a million two million man. I tell you this. Nfl just raking it in. It's churn and churn and burn money. Which is good which is good for all of course obviously for those of us who don't play in the league anymore but cover the league and are part of a network that covers league. It's great sure. And that's that's what you want. You want people paying attention drafts gonna be a big deal no matter what. Just tell you still going to be a buzz. There's no question about it. So after the first who picks the big question and maybe we will now prior to next thursday. I guarantee what is or what are the san francisco forty niners gonna do. What is the forty niners do. What are they going to go to john in. Staten island upjohn o. Immonen fellas how are we happen. I just have a little issue with twenty. you got a bachelors. It's twenty. I know what it is you know. Here's the deal. john. I don't mind you're smoking weed. You wanna smoke weed. Smoke weed all you want. Just stop stinking up the roadways. I agree with you on that. But i do smoke and some of us who have been smoking for a very long time. It really doesn't affect us that much just kind of mellow and it's kind of like a like you said it's kind of like a a feel good type of thing but hey thanks there. Yeah let's make sure we let's make sure we think about the other people around us the smoking. Make sure that we're all friendly each other message today on monday. Smoking right now. Chilin invest right. We'll have we watch on for twenty. I have no idea why we'd love for twenty. It's the we day al. What it is. I can't stand you know. I grew up in smokers household. Lost number my family members to cancer because of smoking. I can't i just i hate it. Yeah i understand can't stand it. Can't san pipe smoke cigar smoke. The whole thing can't stand any of it. Yeah i understand. I mean to a lesser degree. I mean i've had anybody with lung cancer. Of course obviously with gonner you think about smokers and dealing with that but you know me and my wife have asthma. And i do believe that serena's going to end up with it because there's already some early signs of that unfortunately because we both have it so anytime that him around cigarette smoke now. I'm like if it affects me. So let's just i can't smoke and i think john was right so you smoking is fine but you are affecting people around. You sure absolutely just can't can't help but not affect people around you especially when you're driving on the frigging every day you know. I've said like you guys spoke to chill out and come down factum. Yeah i'm driving. I want to be totally aware of what's going on. I don't wanna be chill. The i know you gotta be locked in especially around. Here gotta be locked in. Are you kidding me. All the merging changing just being on a bike on a highway. Forget it it is like a dog fight with a extra meg show up. And you're not even sure where they're coming from man. I tell you the new route on. I'm going in more. The south shore roads so much more winding nece like southern parkway southern state oil. Yeah so much more. Winding i gotta keep the speed down. I get why. Robert moses wanted to make that road and the parkway system for sunday drives because they never expected fats yes used to be for sunday dry dry out in the country. You can't even imagine what it was like when they were building those roads. Wow and let's make them beautiful. Let's keep the bridges low so we don't trucks on them and now and it's just going to be a nice sunday drive out in the country. Now it's just every now it's madness every man for himself now the merge merges are too short yup people raking ramps You know our combined with the merging ramps and it becomes the video game. It's a video game fiasco. It's a video game with real life consequences but you know what you and i have grown up in it so we are used to it now. We're clear experts in the land of these roads. This where my quarterback has come in. Yeah around here. Sure awareness things. You're right. I can tell you what people in front of you're going to do and i can tell you what people behind me. You're gonna do before they do it. I can tell when a guy behind me is getting agitated and wants to cut me off from behind. I can tell you the sense that i can sense that. Yes a sixth sense. I do why because like the duck and the way the whole thing works around here. Strange am i. I've asked you this before you've gotten cut off from behind. How many times. Oh come on hundreds yeah. You can't count. You're in the middle lane. You know that it's a slower lane than the left lane and the guy behind you or whoever it is you could tell is getting agitated. For some reason. I just tell. And as i get ready to flip i my directional on i pal that that guy behind me is already already gone like. He has no regard for me. Especially when you come up to a construction site we see the big arrow. So if i'm in the left lane and the big arrow is telling me to move to my right. Yeah i try to move the my right. And because i have the raptor i try to keep half my raptor in the left lane so no jerk off comes running behind me. Speeding up to the front won a move. That is an ultimate and you know just being kind to everybody else that in front of me lanes straddle lane straddle. It's it's an important move. And i think it's a safety move as well. Wow i've never thought about lane buddy like in some sort of you know little cars gonna come flying up to left you and try to cut off the ten people that earn front of you. You're not going to let that happen. So i try to lane strobe. Make sure that they're not getting by straddled out with your with your car. Oh yeah absolutely. You're elaine straddling. Do i sure am with that car. Do they take you seriously. Yeah it's not the size of your car. Long your blocking the lane they can do about it like damn art teacher in front of me. I can't get around with this lane straddle so you go out the williamsburg bridge. Yes either working on one of those lines so tight that you can see it. In the distance so i'll lane straddle probably a good i would could quarter of a mile. Yes so half-mile. Before i get there. That's a rough stretch. Because once you get through panhandlers alley you get up to the williamsburg where got one of the lanes broken down right and then you gotta go up. Be queuing up though. Yeah i never know what they're doing. I don't know if they're fixing that don't have no clue fixing up there. I don't know. I have no idea working on a road anymore. To what they're doing now. I always see that big arrow. Yeah so. I know that. I have to move over. Elaine and i know that there's by thirty cars in front of me. We should get one of those is about five hundred cars behind me. You know what. I'm lane straddling. Who should just get one of those for our because he loves his attention. Get one of those just pointing at his condo flashing yellow. I'm over here. This is where. I am whimsey and higher up there batman pothole season. Nfl potholes all over the place. Yeah because it's a long commute.

They're not hitting. they're not pitching. And the feelings been atrocious They've lost five in a row. They play the braves tonight. Here was cashman. He says the club is aware of what their issues are there. Better than what. They've shown they know it but they care at the same time. Now one player who has really struggled as aaron hicks here was cashman. Thirty represents a lot of our start on. I think he's an example of many of our players throughout the our squad as he continues to say hicks basically representative of ineptitude. Yeah i mean really. This is really the poster boy for us sucking right. Yeah is inserted his name. You can take his name out for another woman and You're gonna get the same answer. It's it's below where he's capable plane and that's true of currently most of our right now. Yeah he says we understand where we're at at five and ten we own the record we have and and we s more ca- duda to reverse that and despite what many might have thought when he called his video conference yesterday. There are no changes right now. Not here right now to the doing you know other than say. We're disappointed by out. We started this season. We are going to get it corrected. Now we'll get back online and be where we have to be back online back online. They'll see if they can tonight taking on atlanta team that has also struggled to start the season at seven and nine. Jerry i just wanna get this guy in here because i think it's hurt pertinent to the cashman conversation. What's going on pete and brooklyn. Good morning a boys. Hey the only thing funnier this morning then. Al check in the registration on cars. It's been the cashman love fest. The themselves from from how all the way down to the bat boy. Every year set the mission statement as world championship. That mission has been accomplished once in the last twenty years to the tune of four billion dollars. The red sox won twice in the last decade fired. Both general managers charrington in dombrowski at the first sign of adversity. I mean between the moroney corrupter decisions and and i. It's just driving me nuts. how the how. He gets a pass year after year. Oh two years ago. And they could've traded for garrett cole oh well. We can't part with glacier tourists. We can't part with gary sanchez. we can't part with this guy all of those guys now. None of you want to sign to a long term contract two years ago. You aren't going to trade those guys but look what happened. He over value all of them. Now they're looking for a little glacier which is working. We put them judge. He gets hurt so much. We can't sign a long term contract. They could've had real muto for gary sanchez. Let me give me a break. They sign jacoby ellsbury when they've already got brett gardner they signed up for every one of those every for every one of those pete there. There's a huge success. And by the way i want what i want you do. American league doesn't feel that team. What expense rodman. Two hundred million a year when the raised now for spending sixty nine million or handing lunch. Yeah well so that love best wasn't when we were talking about that this morning. Maybe you didn't hear about that. Why you guys are so upset because you just got swept by the raising your own building and they have owned you for the last two years and you have every right to be frustrated and disgusted by that. Because i hate when my team loses to a team that i believe that they should be dominating because the money difference. That is being spent on the roster. There's no question about that. But i want you to call back. Let's call back sixty games into the season. Let's see where the yankees are then and see if your mind changes and you know what when he's silent no mashes question when he made the trade to get glare torres here and he traded chapman away and he traded The other left handed pitcher way. The right you good with that at that point in time but guess what he didn't walk laboratories and because when you give them calls for i mean and now in game fifteen of the season. We're using an opener with a two hundred million dollar payroll and opener really while you also have two guys that are making over three hundred twelve. Three hundred million or more on your roster. Why is that warranted garrett cole and when they garrett cole he deserves every single all right yes stanton worked out. No that's quite. That's answer that question but why bryce harper here. That's my manny. Machado was near because we had to bring in japan and you outstanding and and stan was a guy that was an mvp when they brought him in. I'm when that happened. The overdose craze the majority of the reaction with all the yankees. The rich get richer fund. Yankee young group is no more than the evil empire. Again judge stanton in the middle of the lineup. God this is unfair. So i mean when is it on stanton as opposed to on cashman and think about elvis. There wasn't a fan out there that thought that jacoby ellsbury coming over the red sox would pan out to be one of the worst free agent signings in the history of. That'd be johnny damon. They were all over the guy but when you don't win championships and you get swept by the tampa rays in your build amp to losing a playoff series to them the year before. Yes looking pissed off. I understand all that pre-game yankees braves tonight on the fan after carton roberts five fifty five a lot of the game coverage sports radio sixty six by the way graduations the cardinal roberts yes beating michael.

Yelling at tommy lugo yesterday about putting something up on sadique or something like that then new shirt a new shirt or something but he wanted the the audio up online had the rights to the audio and lou gower was very very reticent to do that bright because when you're a producer you get it from all angles right and you know host want some then management wants something all of a sudden.

The just makes people more angry about you. Know got something done. You gotta go to talk to somebody or hire an agent or something something like that. Go to union. Yeah i mean.

That's where coming from. I think you guys appear right eventually. That was the least the last conversation. I heard just the just the time. There's a time period in which that'll happen. I don't know that's what was told to me. So i don't know but i've asked. Don't just sit around and complain about it. I do. I have asked. This is the kind of scuttle bug that he does. Yeah that's good but no backpay. Greedy retroactive two thousand. Fourteen don't get greedy textile of they ask you you say no. That's the thing i'm enjoying it. I appreciate the airtime own. That's his reward. Just be happy. Shot up and be happy all right so let's go to a couple of calls here. Why not anthony in bell. what's up. Anthony morning gods what he got men boomer and you were one of my idols growing up. I used to volunteer for your game every year but in high school pal. Thank you anthony. I appreciate that what's happening side. No real quick. Look out my shake. Goodhart pioneers versus delaware and the one aa playoffs this weekend. But i wanted to ask you boomer as somebody who's planning on being a new parent probably within the next year year and a half. I wanted to know what you guys thought about being. Okay with something for yourself. Seen somebody who was an on and off but then your kid comes with you. How do you feel about something that you're okay with yourself or you're not really social or about your kid doing one anthony. You'll figure it out as a dad as always tell gio you'll you'll realize one the conversations need to be had and you have to stay involved and engaged and you have to make sure you know what they're doing chore and then and then the conversations common sometimes they're uncomfortable and sometimes you have to scare the living crap out of them yes so. We've just introduced alcohol to sabrina three. Okay yes glass of wine at dinner. No i mean come on you. You know what it's like. Try to be involved in everything trying to be the overbearing parent where they wanna rebel and do everything that you tell them not to do. Your parents raised you the right way. Of course they did my sort of my dad. So i met a lot of mistakes along the way. I'm sure you did as well. And we kinda got where we got to but Most parents figure it out. Yeah you know and you got to be engaged. There's only thing can tell you. Did you have to be engaged in every aspect of their life. You don't have to be a helicopter parent when they're playing soccer or they're in theater class or they're in chess class. You don't have to be one of those people who've but you have to know what they're doing who their friends are who their friends parents. Are you know what issues may be a rising within their friends group because that's when they really start impacting each other and to me. It's it's drama scenario now with gunnar in sydney. Were you one of those parents. That was when they started getting towards like the teenage years. We knew what they were probably drinking underage. Where you'd say. Why new governor wasn't he would not not at all understand but he never had a drink ever mid of beer or something with us. Okay i mean and you know back then was where we are now with them. It was almost like his life was accelerated. So yeah but he'd never experimented on any of those things sittings different. She's healthy cans. But did you were you the dad that said i know you're going to go out and drink but if you do you know you would hear well. I had a conversation pretty easy. Conversation with both of them on the backstop. Okay your mom is going to make sure that you have everything you need in life. And she's going to make sure that you are dressed properly that you're going to go to school on time that your grades are going to be off the chart and all of that stuff was that i was the backstop so the backstop was if you're going to do something stupid and you realize after the fact how stupid it is and you feel like you're in trouble if you call me and you tell me that you need my help. They'll will never be another question about this scenario but as long as you call me as long as i am involved in i am aware of whatever dopey decision that you decided to do because i made a million w. decisions yourself you know what's going to happen and i used to have to remind sydney. Hey said i wasn't born yesterday. I know i have street smarts i know. What's going on. isn't that funny. How all parents are all kids rather things that their parents are clueless about the stuff that they're doing they pull some wall. We all pull. The wall of our parents is time. Yeah and i'm sure she got me a few times where i didn't know but then there are few times i got her where she didn't know. Did they follow your advice and call you every time that they did something only only they never really had to. Yeah honestly i think about it. I think about it wasn't much that good friends you know and You know. I think they always backed each other up First of all brother and sister back each other okay and sydney protected gunnar right and then their friends protected each other and they had solid group of friends both in high school in college. Yeah no i was well. Yeah no i. I do worry about those years those teenage years. You've definitely accentuated that for me well it's fear of god it is it's just like it's the the unnecessary drama but teenagers have to go through it. I know and you'll deal with it. And gino will really deal with it you think of course should definitely will because going genus. She'll be right in the middle of it. You'll be all over. Sabrina feel like the mom and the daughter that the mom and the teenage daughter during that time. Yeah you're you're the one that's going to be the example. Wait until dad gets home. Wanna be that guy. You have to be a little bit of that guy you know. It's a mean guy. Just have to be like an intimidating guy. You know i did. I thought before we had sabrina. That i was gonna be the more lenient of the two of us. Yeah but it's the opposite. Gene is the moral. She spends every day with her. Yeah i mean you come home after you work right. You're little tired and stuff and fun time when daddy comes home. Yeah it's real time when mom and baby are there but twenty goes to school then she become socialized then it becomes over different. She's going to be able to go to school now. No she will just one little side note. I was thinking about the class of twenty twenty one graduating either college or high school so summer. thinking how bad i feel for those kids because they started dealing with this last year in their second semester of their junior year. And now they're dealt with it the entire senior season and how that sucks. Their life is completely been turned upside down by so many idiotic adults making wrong decisions are. They're going to be some graduations. at all. this time going there will be that look. I know schools that are in school. Yeah they are in school and they're going to school and they're playing sports and they're doing things trying to be as normal as possible going to cedar creek park the other day seeing all those kids and families out there playing soccer. See i think lawson this seniors last year had it the worst because planning planning planning prom. Everything was already going then. March hits and then bang. It's gone no junior prom last year. No homecoming dances none. None of the normal things that you would do if you belong to high school and you are in high school and now this year the same things. Tough man it is. It sucks for those kids. It does booming. Anybody bought about no. Of course they do parents and the kids talk to other parents and kids too. But i mean the people that decision makers i think they of course the morning show with boomer esiason in gregg giannotti boomer and geo congrats to them. You know what's eddin the cbs sports network way. The world series of poker. That's going to be broadcast on. Cbs sports that really the world series of poker which is a big deal man. People love that stuff. I know watching people play poker route winning money and losing money like that. Know the reason not to show allen Jerry on tv. What's the thing that's on from five to six on. Cbs sports network. That bothers you the most because you are not is it. The world's strongest man from the eighties. Or is it the bull riding a bull riding because the world's strongest man if you're up and have insomnia that is kind interesting to see the real world strongest man from the eighties sky. Just lifting big heavy cement bulls. Yeah especially from a long time ago. But i guess you know different parts of the country. Do love the bull riding but that's also paid situation. Yes yeah that's a spouse. Okay with that but i do. I do see them playing cards sometimes than there. Yeah i see like celebrity poker off on there. Yeah i mean. I when it gets to that level of like pots or getting that big. I start to get anxiety. Because i'm thinking about all the money. That's in their chips. Like imagine if there was actually dollar bills. Yeah we've got a bit around that before. I don't like how they're allowed to wear sunglasses and stuff. Because that's part of the game is to be able to read someone's face of course. I don't think this should be around. Yeah that's like a pitcher put like something on the ball. You know that wide receivers are like when the players know the snow. The blocking the is like. I wanna be able to as a cornerback re debt. You're sure looking one way or the shield on the helmet. Yeah don't like that. Do you like the gloves that helped the wide receivers make those beckham great catches now. Don't like that. Yeah that's that's performance enhancement. Rather see the catch the nazi the catch. I guess you're right. He got me on that. It's more exciting to see the one handed. Catch the guy going way back in my day back in my day before it was the newman gloves and those attack of fide. You know now. They're really really tackle. The real tight on the hands wide receiver guys. Drop any bolts. A lot of quarterbacks can play with gloves on their hand. You know. Ben rothlisberger glove on his hand. How you drop in any bowls if he got your wide receiver in the nfl. And you've got these sticky gloves. Well as number of reasons. Why one because maybe you misjudge the ball number two. Maybe you're trying to catch the ball with your body as opposed to your hands and number three. There's somebody usually draped all over you. Yeah i guess those are all good reasons. But i'm telling you all these guys are wide open in the middle of the field dropping. Football's frustrating that. Come on five brought back here. I'm not in a phone booth. For god's sake make your play. Yeah i would. I would not be good that situation. Were you good in that situation. Would you give birth. You try to really look. We're all under an enormous amount of stress. And i'll never forget playing the patriots in nineteen ninety-three. It's pouring rain. I mean there must have been ten inches of rain at this game at sullivan stadium. It was a quagmire. It was really bad and it started right as the game kicked off and it ended right after the last play and it was coming down in sheets of rain and bruce caused was the coach and obviously my former offense coordinator in cincinnati. So he could basically say anything to me. And i can take it and i can understand it i. I wouldn't be upset by anything that he might have said to me. That would have been salted. Mary that other crops. Kind of like sal gotcha relationship. So i'd walk up the bruce and we're in this pouring rainstorm and wide receivers kept dropping passes from where from where i was position on the field throwing the ball. I see it through the hands of the wide receivers or bounce off their chest or something. And bruce was saying to me on the sideline because you got vote in their body you gotta throw it in their body. You gotta try to hit him in the chest bruce. You see what's coming down. I'm not out there in a phone booth. I'm out there playing the same set of circumstances that they are so what the hell me for them. Yeah i said. I'll deal with a pass rush at all so the crap i got to call the place and then i got to throw the ball in these schmucks atlantic fox never said i said all. They happened to catch the freakin. Couldn't do it. Well you gotta put in their body. That's when when you're the quarterback of the leader and you the best player that's what you have to deal with the most amazing thing is. I think we won the game. Six to three and i think we had like a third and seven late in the game and we had to get this first down and forget the purse down. The game is over. And i throw the ball to rob more and i have no idea whether or not he caught the ball. I couldn't tell nobody can tell. The official called it a completion. I think as the official wanted to get off the field so bad and this before replay imus you could tell anything on replay it was daniel. I can't even begin to tell you. The worst weather game. I had ever played in in terms of rain and wind and everything else. Six three tells the whole story. I believe it was it was a. It was a late season game at the patriots up there. Yeah yeah wow so wasn't too so you really can't get upset with guys. Yeah but i did do this. So this i said the bruce after the game whatever you do send all the uniforms all the clothing. Put them in the boxes instead of putting them on the plane with us because they're going away all this extra weight send them back in a u haul truck and they did. Wow that's more for you to think about all this crap on the plane that weighs all this extra weight. That's jeans the thing about that. Of course i gotta get on a plane and this frigging weather. I'll by the way speaking of some. Nfl stuff yeah. Did you see this place. That the rams and sean mcvay rented for to be their draft war room. I did not see it. The like the pujols place in the world. it's like some uzan clip. Kingsbury is place for the draft yet but that was sort of like a joke. I thought he was. He put on his house. Yeah i thought. But i thought i don't know where it was judge last year was it wasn't he added was the officers house he was. He was at the office in his house with the cape. Right yeah yeah. Maybe one of his fingers in homes but the ram he deserves nine ounce sale that one of his vacation visiting and save illness. Well one one home home. I have a great but still You get your sensitive to those things. I'm like eddie. Says something. Like that. Or i say something like daddy get like upset about it. I was just saying you know one of his beautiful vacation homes. That's a good for him. He's earned it. No days it damnit. He's earned it anyway. So the the rams they run out this malibu big beautiful malibu spread. They did not draft that. hold on. i'll find a four. Is google rams draft. I think it will come. I mean this is like buji central. Yeah look no matthew stafford who are on the clock at the rocket mortgage draft house all right so it's a sponsored. It's even worse. The giants should go to Xanadu or whatever. That's called now mall of america or mall of new jersey jersey. Just say mall got some name. I carry a member. Great american mall or something. It used to be xanadu. I remember remember. Craig called a down the douche american dream. I think it aired. That's what it's called pumped in so much money into that place. Is anybody even allowed in there yet. That a chris christie boondoggle. What was i don't know if he was involved in that. I'll come ons well. are really current now to actually go to a tremendous anything indoors with lots of pi. No that they put a lot of new money into that place over there to make it a spectacular place swamp. So so what i what. I didn't realize the outside of it. Though i will say that suck the outside of it used to suck but now it actually looks pretty nice. I suppose not so much of an eyesore yeah. I didn't realize this was the same thing. I wanted to look like the port of newark. If you are a lazy sack. I mean this is a president or the love that still could be. I hear yeah. I guess so. There's more opportunities coming up. Take a look at this draft house on what you think this is not. This is not football to me at that is a sponsored thing that they're doing it. Why look at this pool. So did you hear the sportsman that i did on the elite soccer league. That's going to super league abberley again. So that is being spearheaded by kroenke and glazer. Okay so obviously. The owner of the rams who uncertain moseley took the team out of his hometown. Saint louis the bill. That beautiful stadium. I will say so. Pious beautiful stadium and malcolm glazer the owner of the tampa. Bay buccaneers owns what in the arsenal one owns. I think the glazer's own man city. And i think that crohn's arsenal and i know shod con on one of those teams over there to these. Know if he's a part of this super league that they're putting together. Who is that really going to happen. Yes well what if one of these other league is the premier league going to be a part of that yeah. Well there's teams from the premier from Siri in italy and lollygag in space trying to take all the popular teams right. Put them in this one league to create more value and create more eyeballs and to make more money. That's that's the whole i find it. And the other reason. They're sick and tired of dealing with uefa and they they're they're they're sick and tired of dealing with those corrupt organizations. Just like you know the power five conferences. Here are yeah. I was just about to make that comparison. Yes jerry jones. How many times it. He ambushed the other thirty one. Nfl owners marketing his cowboys. Sure kind of like the yankees major league baseball very true. The yankees man. We we have the most popular brand. And we're gonna we're gonna make money off of it. I mean it seems like a massive undertaking to pull that whole thing off. Oh it's cranky glazer con on these going to be worth like four billion each club. I think that's what they said. What are the fans about this. They hate they hate it. The i thought so figured as much. Americans ronin european saw and So far bundesliga in the french league. I don't know that what it's called there. They're no teams from them are are involved yet but but they will be yeah paris and by eunuch bright mad bundesliga legally. Yes he's all over it. I mean he's no longer just the king of the football he's the king of kochta soccer too. I mean the other day. I was turned on. Tv there's a red bulls and nyc afc. They're starting again. Yeah but this won't be. This will be the best player money but you drop the boondocks league on bid basically screwing all these other teams all these other smaller market teams. And what else is what else is right. Bundesliga serey our immune. You drop it all that on me. The sworn i know you're into that stuff. I go get my pizza every time i in there. The guy's got it on.

Atlantic comes off a win sunday night in chicago but there are a couple of games under five hundred Yankees have not one in a week. Basically they're five and ten. They've dropped five in a row swept by tampa. And so that brought. Brian cashman out with the media yesterday on a video conference He has a lot of faith that this team will get going. Offensively individual below average performances will get corrected. We believe over time. And he's talking about the offense there in terms of the pitching that outside of garrett cole hasn't been good starting wise but he believes that will come around and then of course starters will get online and get us that distance and get us that consistently good performance. Every five days just hasn't happened on the outset also made it very clear. That wound is their manager and boots. Don't everything eat can do within his power early so we will see talks. Well okay he also made it very clear. If you're going to throw balls on the field. Expect to be arrested. He was not happy with what about that. Man getting arrested no agreed but you getting arrested. It's exactly right. And he also said. Aaron hicks was basically symbolic of all the problems. That the team is having their interchangeable. The same problems he is. They'll see in court and fifteen years and medicine mets in chicago to play the cubs tonight. Mets are seven four leading the cubs. Six and nine taiwan walker. Jake area are the stars there. And by the way it's morton and town for the yankees and the braves tonight Also of note you had the phillies lose to the giants to nothing yesterday. Basketball wise a very busy night ahead. You've got the knicks playing the hornets new york. The hottest team in basketball right now winners of six straight. They went to wonder to four. Say what what do they are there with. The celtics lost their the hottest team in basketball six zero. I like it. Let's correct rolling.

Sixty six wfan am. I mentioned the celtics. They also the bulls one zero two to ninety six. And so the knicks celtics tied for fifth now in the eastern conference warriors. Beat the sixers. Won seven ninety. Six steph. Curry had forty nine. He was seventeen from three point range and he is enjoying himself. Just settled in bond no being aggressive odyssey but kind of letting the game come to you and for me it looks. It looks a certain type of way. But i'm having a blast out there playing basketball. He shooting right now and they're right on the cost. They are playing series. That's correct that is right and they have had a weird season. Klay thompson guys been in out of the lineup Suns beat the bucks in overtime. Won twenty eight one. Twenty seven chris paul past magic johnson. A magic johnson. For fifth all time in assists.

Look for the carlos watson show in real talk real change on youtube and subscribe or download the carlos watson show. Were ever get your podcasts. The morning show with boomer. Esiason and greg nadi boomer and geo this premier league superleague thing is a huge international story right now and it's being when the glazers sport bought. They bought manchester united. I believe that's the team that they bought. I remember there was a lot of pushback about them buying that team. I can american businessman coming over there in buying team in england in running the team. The biggest brand to brand like they're going to ruin it they're gonna they're gonna flush it down the toilet or whatever but when you think about this and stan kroenke and maybe shod cons involved in this. These are all american businessmen that have people around them trying to figure out how they can make more money and they've figured out the way that they can make more. Money is by forming a super league and leaving the premier league is one one of the situations in the other countries are other situations but it is creating an enormous amount of stress for the soccer fans. Are the football fans over in europe. Right now big deal. I don't think it's going gonna end up happening because all the pushback. I don't think it. Will you got the government involve. You're going to have many governments involved in one of the things that they were saying in england is that you know there's a lot of these players obviously their international players coming and going in in and out of england and they all have to have the proper passports and all the proper paperwork regarding the teams and all this other stuff. They're talking about taxing these teams. They're talking about not allowing these players to play in this situation. I mean there's all sorts of things that are going on right now but it is a. It is a huge deal. You know it's like we used some different examples here but imagine would never happen because it's not a worldwide sport. I guess you could say trying to think if football were a worldwide wants us basketball. He's basketball okay. Let's take the nfc. Let's take the lakers. I guess the nets now. Let's take utah and let's take well chicago. Bulls kaga boston celtics. Okay and say they're going to go play in an international league and leave the nba behind. That's basically what it's like. Yeah and that would of course would be insane. People would go nuts over that just like going nuts there but the i can't imagine this is gonna i mean with this type of resistance that we've already seen well the you know the thing obviously being over there getting to and from stadiums not a big deal you know it's like going from state to state but man i'll tell you it changes the entire tradition of what everybody grew up and this is why they were worried when the glazers bought manchester united initially not. They didn't see a super league coming. That maybe maybe they would have run it into the ground and they wouldn't be as successful but now that this is here. This is the problem with having people buying something that have never been a part of the tradition of a league. It just seems so drastic to make more money. Now i understand the nfl. They try to. Every lee tries to make more money but this just seemed so incredibly drastic like the nfl tweak here there at a game at a playoff team things like that you know. Play a couple more international games. But what's going on here is changing the entire face of the sport. How about if you're these other teams in the premier league and now you're losing your best most profitable teams that won you play them or they play you just like playing the yankees or the dallas cowboys is a big deal Just simply because the brand recognition and the success that those franchises have think about manchester city manchester united. Those are two rivalries. I mean that's been on two teams. That can't stand one another. Tell me one of them's gone in the super league and the other one is like liked the yankees leaving base. Paul you know and the red sox staying like it's crazy it's crazy. It's impossible to use the logic to try to put it into. Were used to because it's not comparible. Keep trying to give examples you trying to give examples but there's anything like direct apples to apples comparison. You're a hardcore fan. Now let me ask you. If you're a hardcore fan of one of the teams that was asked the super elite league would you feel differently than one of the fans. That is a part of a team. That wasn't asked to join like. Would you be all ford or against breaking tradition. I think everybody's against breaking tradition. That's i would think i mean it's like flattering. I suppose but at the same end. It's like wait a second. This is not anything that we're used to ever our entire lives. It's time for players for this. They're getting paid and getting more money. Yeah probably i mean. I don't know how far along are we in this process. And they're they're pretty deep into it. Now that's why it's becoming such more of a mainstream story. I believe i heard it's going to start in the twenty two twenty three season. This is this is them getting kicked off correct hoof. Here's my take not going to happen. I know one thing too much pushback. Too much pushback fans no like it. Riots that's what i think. They're not going to be happy with this. Those soccer hooligans. Going to let this happen. I don i love. I guess the government could stop it and they could threaten all these different ways to try and stop it but took american businessmen the goal to there and ronit each the morning show with boomer esiason in gregg giannotti boomer and geo.

Yankees Plan To Stay The Course

"Hey was good. This is cold lama. Leak aka kids and station an old friend of ken. Griffey's and i'm alex aka the producer of the show and an old baseball fan. We have a new season of american prodigy on ken. Griffey junior lost legacy. Listen wherever you get your podcast brought to you by cores. Life made the chill breaking down all aspects of yankee. Baseball is the bronx pinstripe. Show with your host. Andrew rotundi and scott ryan. Let's go what's up everybody. Welcome to the bronx pinstripe show. This is episode number five hundred and thirty six north. I'm looking forward to scott when one day harrison is old enough to understand baseball naked. Sit him down and explain to him. Listen brian cashman gave a very motivational press conference and then the yankees stole victory with a couple of walks in pass ball and some pop ups in the eighth inning against the atlanta braves and that was their turn around the two thousand twenty one yankees were looking for. It's inspiring stuff. It really is the fact that they that they completely deserve that. Victory and and yet Really really really earned it. They did a good is really discerning. Is allowed them to you know. Make sure you don't swing at the ball that's going to go pass the catcher. Make sure that you you you you take a walk which again. This is aaron. Aaron hicks strength. We we know this. Aaron hicks strength is not swinging. The bat is taking a walk is to working at count. The man did it. beautifully Clearly out of a slump and and it worked perfectly and and you're right. I think it was all it. All stemmed from not only aaron boone's closed door talking to is stern. That was a friday night and then they go. It had to had to sink in. But but brian cashman has a has a press conference. That sounds like he's addressing a jv beaten down team and and clearly they they they took it you know and they and they understand that. They are all in this together so just motivational motivational stuff. But do you wanna read the quotes from cash. I do because this is today. We're gonna be talking about a little bit about that That walk the clearly beautiful victory from last night but also brank cashman press conference because this has been the topic of the show. Quite often right. We've you've you really take a lot. What he what he says in the past with Very literally very literally. I think and i've i've tried to temper expectations with you and sometimes i've tried to walk you off the cliff because i think he gets you very frustrated and i know that and maybe he understands that that it does and that's why he's kind of shifted tone. 'cause the tone was different. Tone was exactly to be expected. Ll go you read the quotes. All right brian cashman. Here's this is This is brian cashman addressing the the new york yankees. Jv roster as as a sitting down just completely bewildered reacting to how how to shake up a roster to quickly. I don't see us in the staff and and the players that we have that's our message to the players we believe in you. We know what you're capable of this a bad stretch and you know what guys we're going to get through this together. This is an us versus them. This is collectively. All of us. Were wearing this together including me guys. I want you to go out there and give it your give it your best and let's just make sure that we're having fun and you're supporting each other and if we come out with a victory well let's be happy and smile and walk into the clubhouse and be excited to go to the next day and maybe just maybe we can carry a little bit of momentum. It doesn't matter how we win. Let's just win. let's go guys. Let's go you know when you watch. Like ninety s sitcom rerun like full house or family matters or something like that and then they have a big moment with the family and everyone gets together and then the audience collectively goes oh. That's what would happen after those. Brian cashman comments if there was an audience of vengeance media members on zoom who has just been a big. Oh you're exactly right. And i'm gonna make sure that donald play some music behind me talking through that quote right now after. He said his knee. Zik some nice. I need some some full house you know. Get a painter. Danny tanner to talking to To dj after after you know a boy broke her heart. There's gonna be a lesson there. There's going to be a lesson in there and that's what this says. There was a lesson to be learned. And by by. Gosh these guys are gonna learn that lesson and that is also being the bet not the bat. You actually win the game if you don't swing the bat we're we're making fun of this because if anyone thought this press conference was going to be anything other than what it was in a couple of announcements on some injury news and and stuff like that they just haven't been following the yankees and hal. Brian cashman is operated for a decade. Plus he does not overreact. Certainly he's not going to react strongly to fifteen games into a season. I understand fifteen out of one. Sixty two is not a lot. You understand that. Everyone understands that everyone who can do simple math which is not everybody. Yes blair spare the the twitter replies that it's early i know it's early okay. Thank the team has looked horrendous. This is the worst stretch worst start to a season. I can remember in a long long time especially when you consider. This team's expectation is world series or bust. This isn't a. Let's see how the season goes. Maybe we can be in contention. Come september this is a world series or bus roster and this is how you come out of the gate. Flat mental mistakes airs no production with runners on base runners in scoring position. Bad at-bats bad. Starting hitting home runs the thing that you're supposed to be doing by far the best. Yeah like questionable. Questionable moves all around like the roster. Everything has been bad so but if you if you thought that brian cashman was going to get on zoom and announced marcus teams was fired or aaron. Boone was fired or there was going to be some sweeping changes. You have had your head in the sand. Because that's not how they've been operating now. I did think. I did think there was going to be a move announced. Because whilst would you announce zoom or schedule a zoom. I thought maybe they were making a more significant roster decision than calling up mike ford or tyler wade to replace jay bruce but as it turned out what what were you. What were you potentially thinking there is. There's not very many moves to be made choir acquiring someone or signing someone. I i just because i was just trying to wrap my head around. Why would they schedule a press conference like what's the point if all you're announcing a few things like you can do that through twitter. Which is what they normally do. Roster moves so that was going to be something a little bit more but as it turns out cash wanted to take the opportunity because he knew combined was monday wasn't often so monday was an off day. They just got swept at home by the race. Look terrible he knew he was going to be bombarded with questions from media like hey. Why is your team sucks. So bad so he just wanted to get them all on a room. A room virtual room together and address all the questions at once. And that's why he scared with the press conference but if you thought boone was getting fired if you thought teams getting fired. It's i'm sorry like go. Go go look what happened with this team over the last ten fifteen years and also firing your manager not that that was ever on in the cards but firing your manager. Fifteen games into the season is basically saying we give up right well. It's totally different for this one. I mean it is not on the never never on the table with this regime. Because brian cashman is now linked with aaron boone. So we've talked about this with contracts expiring. In the next couple years they need successor. Cashman needs success with boon to because he brought him in no experience. That was a big risky move. Firing the guy who was a couple of out away from the world series with a team that was not supposed to even be close to that deposition and bringing in a guy with literally zero experience that's ever managed ever in his life yet. Now you're connected to that guy. That's a risky move. So now you need to do everything possible behind you to to have him win. Because it's both of you now. Did i ever tell this on the podcast member. I read that klapisch book the empire. Yeah he it. Part of that book talks about how aaron boone was hired in the interview process. And how impressed they were and one of the examples they use. Is that one of the quizzes that they give the managers is they just presented them with statistics with no names instead. Fill out the lineup card. Based on these statistics and apparently arab who got eight out of nine right according to yankees nerds that was the highest score and klapisch wrote in the book. That was one of the big takeaways from aaron. Boone interview was that he. He passed the nerd quiz. Yeah that's that's that's something. So i mean i do think that they know analytics. Walking into that and aaron. Aaron boone gives you the answers that you want to hear quite often. He's that he's a media guy. He probably knows that they're he definitely knows that. They're looking at this analytical approach. They're literally getting rid of joe girardi. Who's definitely a different style manager. So he's giving the answers that they know that they're they're they want to hear. It's it's like it's like already having the The answers to attest mocking at and being surprised that you did well in the test. So what would you have like a casteran to have done. I didn't think there was anything to be done either. I didn't know what the press conference was going to be about. I i certainly You know didn't expect any big moves like you said that's not what they do. Even a even a hitting coach in the middle of the season. I'm not sure what that's going to do for this team if they if they bail on anybody right now. It's egg on their face. It looks like they're they didn't prepare the correct way in the off season. No one's going to say that not now. At least no one's gonna say that. So a pet peeve of mine people thinking firing a hitting coach really can do anything like what does the hitting coach really gonna do for. Aaron judge giancarlo stanton aaron hicks. These guys are veterans of baseball who have been established in the major leagues. Like they're either going to necessarily because because there are the hitting coach can can certainly pick up on small mechanical issues or small little tweaks. That can make a difference as not only marcus teams doing that. There's enough people about the yankees that see. That are hours and hours of footage of these guys swing. A bat are doing that. Maybe marcus thames one communicating to them. But but firing. Marcus teams is not going to snap these guys out of slump. That's foolish thing wasn't robbed. Kino's dad who who had fixed swing a couple of times like watching robbie's knows dad was maybe the one who got all the steroids but he was the one who through to him in the home run derby. Yeah but he also definitely helped him with a swing. You know if you just by watching. You could tell us about certain things. So i i do. Think that if you have the familiarity with a guy and marcus. Thames has been with the organization for a long time and he came up with a lot of these guys to like. He's been around these guys for a very long time. So there's a report there. So i don't look i think the hitting coaches and you know you good on the line with the coaches you could. You could probably say that it's overblown You know there are specific role with each individual player. And and you're saying because they have all of these guys in the and the data and the and the film and all these things. But it's important to have that person that you trust as a consultant to work with you one-on-one about certain things and the way to go about fixing certain things and i think that back and forth from the report and conversation just identifying certain things and having a trust with someone is important but that said like. There's there's not much to. There's not much that's that's happening clearly. That's changing approach at all. There's no approach change here. It's just a matter. Look if that had down and and just power through this eighth inning. Last night they load the bases with nobody out. And what was their approach at the plate like dandelion up three times. Yes you got a pop up from frazier. You gotta pop up from glacier in a pop up from Gary sanchez and if it weren't for a pass ball and a walk they're not scoring a run there so i look at the approach and there was no less his. Try and lift the ball to the deep part of the outfield. Let's try to make contact. Hit the ball the other way. No no that it's still. I want to be the hero in headed into the bleachers and get the grand slam and then get the curtain call for the nine thousand five hundred people in the stadium. Because i don't wanna get booed because they've been doing my ass all game so keep trying to hit for home runs than than didn't see what happens because you're either gonna pop out or strikeout if you're not connecting perfectly i. Yeah i don't understand it the to me if i'm a guy that's struggling as well. I'm cutting things down on going back to some basic mechanical xs and os here and just today coach. Marcus tim's oppressed shouldn't sit down and be like. Hey let's let's break it down here. You need to start. Yes back through the zone player. That kind of stuff. It's like a golf swing when you when you when you realize that you are just completely screwed right. And i'm sure it happens to every one of us because no-one no-one listening to this show or on the show is is You know professional golfer and probably even a scratch. Maybe there's a few but the majority of people in the world are bad golfers at the end of the day whether they want to admit it or not but if you can simplify and even take things back like as a bad golfer i can start to hit it straight a little bit if i just don't i just go squared a square and i limit my back swing and like essentially putt my driver. You know i'll go one hundred and seventy five yards dead straight and i can do that practically every time. Choke up and just like do a half swing. I can get the ball down there. It's because you're just. You're trying to simplify your taking out a lot of the things that that gets. You messed up in the first place and you can certainly do that with a baseball. Swing especially with these guys the Batta batta ball skills as being a professional hitter. But it doesn't doesn't look like anybody besides your shallow or detail. Who who's doing that. But i don't understand that what you shoot this twenty forty forty six after two seven. I put up in the beginning to sevens in the beginning. That's a nice comeback by you. Nice comeback it was because he was playing with. Got cocky and gave me tried to give me a putt that i refused. How long was the putt. How dare you. How dare you try to give me a putt. Putt but we don't give each other. That's when we play. We play nine holes on early wednesday mornings and he you know he was playing. He was playing well through the first couple of holes. Got a little cocky started talking about it. I saw the writing on the wall. And then he tried to give me a putt. Now's like not taking that. Goddamn kids hit cuts for granted tonight. I'm not taking that put on. Not no i'm not taking up. I'm not picking it up because you don't want to give him the pot and it will get an whole no. I knew what he was doing that. He was getting cocky and just like giving me something because he was winning at that point. Did you make the putt. I made the pot. And then i kicked his ass for the rest of the nine holes because he got cocky in the gulf god's came down and smack them. That's what happened. Not sure about you. But i'm taking a rain check on spring cleaning this year freshen up for the season with comfort. Instead was sheets towels lounge wear and more from brooklyn and with their birthday sale. Happening this weekend brooklyn is offering site-wide savings on all things comfort for their biggest sale of the year brooklyn was founded by husband and wife duo rich and vicky with the goal to create beautiful luxury homosexuals at prices. That do not break the bank by working directly with benefactors. They insure premium high-quality comfort every single time at a fraction of the retail price. That means ridiculously soft bedding towels. An lounge wear brooklyn is so confident. You'll love everything. They even offer a three hundred sixty five day warranty owen. They've also got seventy five thousand five star reviews and counting. It's pretty damn hard to get that. That's hard to argue with. Get everything you need for. A spring refresh during brooklyn's biggest sale of the year shop the brooklyn and birthday sale going on this weekend. And if you're listening to this podcast after the sale ends do not worry. You could still go to brooklyn dot and use promo code bronx to get twenty dollars off any purchase one hundred dollars or more that's brooklyn in dot com and enter promo code bronx to get twenty dollars off any purchase of one hundred dollars or more brooklyn and everything you need to live your most comfortable life the yet so the approach the approach thing is is definitely i mean maybe they tried to shake up the lineup. Last night hicks wasn't in the lineup. Clint frazier wasn't in the lineup. To start nail so started. Mike ford rubio. Dora set people. Acted like this was a major shakeup. I didn't consider it a major shakeup because really the only one that got benched. Quote unquote was aaron hicks because fraser's in a platoon so he just didn't start. So you benched. Aaron hicks who hitting one hundred okay. Great a real major. Well because gardner gardner play center and talk news and left he did. Yeah so therefore frazier to get bashed. But he hasn't been starting a lot anyway. I'm just saying look. I was excited when i saw that. Frazier was coming in first of all. Let's talk about a couple of things here Brune tried to give away this game. And and i don't care what people say. It's the guys have to hit. Yes i understand that the guys have to hit okay. Now that that's been said he tried to give up the game bookie coming coming back in. Oh look into the seventh inning by getting cocky to flip around. Pablo fucking sandoval. How that guy stolen the league are we. Are we serious. Are we really making decisions on. Who's going to pitch between chad green. Who's one of the best relievers in the league and look lucky. Luke says the last guy in the ball beyond the roster probably when zach britton comes back and we're getting shoot by starting the inning to flip around pablo sandoval. Get outta my face with this. Give him the inning. And oh by the way because of this. Nonsense freddie freeman. Got that that. That could have been devastating. He hit the ball hard. Luckily was right. Lemay you put. It could have been devastating and chad. Dream was in a position now where there's a runner on first. Not coming with that. Cleaning like aaron boone. Loves the do getting cute starts with getting cute. And that's exactly that anyone's blew the game because of because of that unless they he didn't the players almost blew the game because it's situations they were put it. He has consistently this year putting guys in shitty positions and positions where they they cannot succeed at their with the highest percentage of of of of success. Right whatever he's just now putting him in a good position and it's driving me nuts. He's driving me nuts more now than he's ever driven nuts. A lot of people are going back to their records. Starting in the beginning of two thousand twenty th the short season pointing to the fact that they're really only game over five hundred. I believe now with a win last night. A game over five hundred or two games over five hundred when you date back there and it gets a little messy when you when you start to span season. It gets very messy. You can't really do that. But but this team has such an opportunistic. Take its course. It is but but but the teams certainly i think has regressed from an overall. What's the word just cohesiveness you'll level it's cohesiveness and consistency and fundamental standpoint has been a regression pretty much since aaron. Boone has taken over. And i don't think that can be a coincidence. I'm sure he's very good at certain things. Very good communicator. Maybe the players love him. Maybe he is beloved by the yankees front office and everything that they present him with. He takes and understands and tries does what they are asking him to do. I mean brian. Castro has said aaron. Boone is doing exactly what he needs to be doing so clearly. They believe in the manager. But i look at the results on the field and i say things are getting worse. Not better and who. You're going to blame okay. There's only a few people you can blame. There's the players there's the manager and there's the general manager those who those are the people that really bear the brunt of the blame one of one of the biggest things that i think that when you're looking at a guy that doesn't have much experience and is coming in as the relationship guy right. You're there's a huge piece of the season missing when you're playing through a season and you enter one of these bad sums and it happens every year with a team not necessarily like this with the new york. Yankees were literally. Every single player is slumping. Maybe a aside from a couple of guys or shallow and dj even though dj early on was has detailing for his though like i feel like dj lately. He's definitely been no i. There's an intensity yeah. He's still looks like dj even even when he's drowning into the grounding out with runners in scoring position the bases loaded like the frustration. There you could see it all over his face so yes it's it just seems like he was. This can be better than dj's been oh for sure but also you need some protection around you like ads and protection around. You see better pitches also but my point is is that when you when you have a relationship guy. That relationship guy can come into play when needed right. When when there's like a tough situation with a player or whatever that relationship guy needs to show up to smooth the situation over or to to to walk through guys make them feel comfortable even though flasher you could. You could argue that in the playoffs. The relationship didn't exist. Because gary sanchez was not being communicate. was not being communicated with gary sanchez in a positive weather and made him feel good about being benched in the playoffs. But you're missing now. Is that baseball guy throughout the year. The baseball guy the baseball guy that knows the situations the baseball guy that knows what to say to individual players when they're not doing well the baseball guy to that knows how to harness the talent when a guy is going well and you know make sure that that is being seen on a level to the rest of the players. The baseball guy that knows how to get through those slumps on a on a team and make sure that there are some guys picking guys up and making sure that they're drilling certain areas when they become a focus point of regression. That baseball guy is not there. Maybe there's some of it. Maybe carlos mendoza is the baseball guy in the in the league anymore. Those guys in the league are are being pushed out for for newer wave more analytically driven analytically. Thinking guys that baseball guy is like it's hard to find now. And but what. I'm saying baseball guy to i'm talking about just the small intricacies of of the of the game which which go back to fundamentals and if you can't get better throughout a season and refresh your brain on fundamentals. Then we have a serious problem because most of the time when you do that when you break it down when you kiss keep it simple stupid and you get back to those good places. That's when these players who have unbelievable talent and have gotten to this point. That's when they can get back on their horse and start flourishing not by pressing two are not by doing the same thing over and over and over again praying that it comes out of it and just waiting through that it's breaking it back down getting back to your good place getting back to that simple place and then building from there and that's just not happening and that's infuriating to watch it really is but when i see gio doing that exactly that going the other way taking the pictures that are there and then guess what he does. Last night he smokes. Oh ball. that's that that morton leaves up in the zone that should be tattooed dead center field. It's exactly what he does. He tattoos up all because he's trying to hit a line drive not trying to trying to hit the ball over the fence. He's trying to make good contact. Make really good a connection with that ball and and see what happens with. And that's when that boat went over the fence he smoked apple the yankees though believe in their players they believe in their approach their their strategy their players that they put on this roster. So they're planning to stay the course because eventually the banging will come eventually. All these guys are gonna start hitting a ton of home runs going to start scoring runs in bunches and it's not going to be an issue that is i think there that is they're thinking that it's the courses mentality we know. That's the mentality but again that it becomes the problem when you do hit these laws because these lulls are just magnified to a different level and unfortunately for teams like this guess what that debt that will happen also when you face good pitching when do you face good pitching faced on most good pitching at the highest playoffs so this is a problem that unless they address it during the regular season. That's not going to go away and it's going to rear its ugly head again and it's going to happen in october about the people that are saying. Oh wait till it gets warm out the yankees or start rushing the ball. They'll start talking about this. Was somebody day In a in a grim work call. They were talking about that narrative that narrative while maybe true is stupid and ridiculous because what kind of temperatures come in october. It's called a gag. Also the yankees played a whole road trip in florida indoors. And then outside in dunedin stunt. It was a real any warm there what happened. It was eighty degrees there. Why did they hit a bunch of home runs. So is the win last night as dirty an ugly as it was. Is that a turning point. Is that something you just need to get it under your belt. Okay we won by her by crook. We one who cares how it looked. Let's move forward or back in the win column. If there still in last place a baby stepping forward. Sure you can use anything you want to build on right you can. You can spend any any kind of win narrative. Whatever you want you can spend as long as you're doing it in a way that makes sense. Sure they can do that. They're lying to themselves if they if they want to do with that particular when because it was probably the ugliest of possible ways to win. They've literally did nothing to deserve that. Besides gio or shallow and on pitch well did look very positive takeaway if you're looking for positive takeaway five bullpen. Look good the bullpens. Look great all all season. I mean certainly kluber has been bad and he's going to pitch against atlanta tonight. But you know if you're looking for the really good. I thought that hook is is is nasty like he. When he's on he's very good. He's really hard to hit and it's fun to watch. He's really fun to watch. So i'm really hoping that they're able to stretch him out. We're able to get more of them. Because i just the eighty pitchers five innings. I just the taste is like. Oh my gosh i want more. I want more and understand. What their i want more. The thing is about that win. Is it's like like you said they did. They did basically nothing to deserve the win. Especially from the offense of side of the ball. So how do they which is your shelhah. How do they take that. What do they do with that. do they does. The offense go into into wednesday night's game with a little bit more confidence just because they scored runs bottom line is they scored runs. And that's been a struggle for them or underscored for them. Yes whatever they like scoreboard. The runs were there on the scoreboard. Okay you can you can. You can go one of two ways with this you can just you can just fall back into what you've been doing and nothing will change and they're going to get blown out again or or just because all little something positive will sprinkle sprinkle positively on the yankees night last night. The fact that they won that could be a turning point. I don't know we'll see how it goes. But i i think i think if you're making if this is going to be a turning point it's going to be the how they follow it up as well cashman's electric comments. It was it was it was the electricity came from that From the from those words but they they have to look. Think if you want to look at something. I was joking on twitter last night to new hitting coach for the new york yankees jeweler shallow. Who smoked up all. But i mean look that approach. Look at geos approach i. I'm hoping that that's getting into the heads of these guys and talking about having fun gomo pitches doing the doing those things to get get you know get back to ball and have effective at bats and last night was proof proof positive you start doing those little things and you start seeing the ball differently and you are locked in and line drives go over the fence if we can get that approach from some of these other guys. I believe in their talents as well. I think these guys are very talented. Of course they are but they need to break it down a little bit and start doing some small things so that they can really expand upon them. And i think that's how you turn something around. So i'm not here for weir's waiting and waiting until you. Do you finally connect. Your shoes are still on and the ball goes over the fence a few times. Like let's just actually be professional baseball players and get better mechanically and and actually try to improve rather than just freaking wait. It'd be stubborn base. Baseball's a long season but there are certain points where some urgency is needed. And i think after this fifteen game stretch. The yankees needed need. Needed need some urgency. Because you can find yourself in a situation where if you just have a horrific april your whole is too big to dig yourself out of no matter. How what you play for the rest of the season. I'm not saying. The anchors are there but but that's that's just the reality of how the yankees have been playing so far so eventually you do need to have emergency can't just keep saying it's a long season. It's a long season. It's gonna come. It's gonna come because what happened. What happens if you're fourteen games under five hundred and it's june the divisions good and everybody else. Yeah it's like okay. Maybe they will get to fourteen years five games. Ten games under five hundred. Whatever it is even if they're five hundred it's like okay. We'll eventually you're going to run out a calendar right. It's hard to say that. In april i understand that but yes i. I'm i'm more looking at these guys. She should be identifying the fact that you know. Maybe this isn't just us slumping and if not working maybe maybe. The pitchers are making more adjustments to us. Maybe there is a said that layer of a book out originally with that first weekend. You're like i just noticed. More fastballs in the middle of the zone that they were swinging through and that might be early season roster that might just be here here it is hit it because i know you can't well i mean we've seen them struggle. We've seen these guys especially stanton struggle with fastballs up in the zone. I keep going back to that. Ver- lander up at like four four years ago three or four years ago. Where he just here it is. I dare you and just blew a giancarlo. Then yes if. They're if they're if they're being exposed on some of these at bats it does seem like they're picking out them a little bit more but again i don't wanna be sitting here waiting Because one that's not fun to watch and to. That's just that's just me. Seeing professional athletes not making adjustments. That are necessary to be better. Just be frigging better. Be better be better. That's the takeaway here. Well we wanted to get on an and discussed the cashman press conference and and i guess just the state of how the yankees are handling this. This slow start so hope you guys enjoyed. It will be back again for the friday five episode. The yankees got a weekend series in cleveland. Coming up so.

The dogs and Dan doesn't know that I chose to save the dogs. I don't think are you calling hauling these so for those that don't know you could either go to Dan's wedding registry and buy him a gift for his wedding or you could donate to a cause and what do you get the man man who already has everything so I wanted to make it easy for you guys. If you didn't want to buy a gift if donate to a charity that would save some animal. I thought you would appreciate shaped donation because you have a kind heart near Goodman. Thank you Dan.

I got everything that I wanted out of the equation already by just letting you know that you got me. Some got us something in you where I should have just said that you can put like five dollars. No one would even even know this seems like quite the scam maybe not understanding sort of the spirit of this. I'm I'm trusting my most treasured loved ones.

Yeah like at least one hundred fifty dogs. I got you a frame. Thank you billy I will treasure it. Forever Andy Slater is reporting. Chris has got a lot of questions for me about wedding life for some reason any peppers me with them all the time. Andy Slater is reporting that Al Golden and the University of Miami are involved in a lawsuit over his buyout. Golden says he's has been receiving checks monthly for twenty four cents. Twenty four cents is what he's saying. I guess that's probably not the buyout. Those are honestly the residual check for a burger king commercial in Nineteen ninety-one. That's part about that. Is that the Senate the end up. Probably paying thirty five cents costing now. He's taking his inefficiency store. Government Mentor businesses to everything. It's just a plague that keep spreading. I I saw something Bobby Wagner did the other day that was really nice and I see that the NFL is. It's guys probably the best linebacker in the game. Certainly one of them and he plays for the seahawks and he was named the week thirteen. NFL PA COMMUNITY VP MVP for packing up Thanksgiving meals at a local grocery store and helping deliver them to homeless families in Seattle any also decided to pick up the TAB for all the shops Shoppers Onsite for an hour. And I know so many of you are used to these stories but the reason that this one is a little more meaningful than some of the others is he got caught doing it. He was trying sighing to do it privately like he was trying to do. He wasn't bringing cameras around. He wasn't expecting it became a thing on social media but he was actually trying to be charitable double in the way opposite to the way Mike wants to be charitable which is You know to get credit for his Terry doing something Nice if no one knows about it. Put It on the Pole Guillermo at Lebatardshow. Is there any point to doing anything. Nice if no one knows about it you think L. Goes and cashes the twenty four seven checks because I'm serious because I have a chest so I got her husband. I've got a refund from from my car dealership for whatever reason for the two dollars and check for. It's been sitting in my car for three months now and I'm like I go to the bank and cash check for no other check mobile. Do Mobile you're familiar with. A tree falls in the forest but a tree falls in the forest and replant the tree and yet no one's in the forest. What is the point? I think you've accurately articulated the real reason for giving this holiday season to get ed credits what we have all these awards. It's all about credit. Twenty four cents. Like how insulting is that every time time Al Al Golden goes to his mailbox or whatever does he open each one of them like. How does this work? Or if he has direct deposit he gets an alert on his phone once a mind. I four cents. Is this a decimal issue. Or are they legitimately how long is this in perpetuity throughout the the universe. Is this a billion dollar. Twenty four cents deal How does this mistake get made if it's not a clerical error? It's not if it's not a mistake that somebody in accounting is making. How is it possible? Do you think the University of Miami's bleeping with Al.. Golden Gods take us to court twenty twenty four cent man. We'll see if you can pay your lawyers. Twenty four cents. At a time classical he needs lawyers Donlevatar of my kids. Don't even like me anymore. That's the bad. The one thing I had was my kid's was my twin girls and they are mortified by me by mere existence Stugatz.

Yes you did you peak speakers. You're both peekers. Put It on the poll. Guillermo in our Mike Roy peekers So before we go any further. How high is Brian? CASHMAN's office Brian. CASHMAN is the general general manager of the Yankees has one of the greatest names in all of sports given what his job is. Brian Cashman has been the general manager for a long time but they really blew it last year with a great offensive team. They didn't get any pitching he never spends on pitching now. The reports are they're going strong their priority. This off season is Garrett Cole but some Yankee fans ends just did something. Those cashman's office is very high up. And some Yankee fans just evidently they scaled the walls of one of these skyscrapers with ropes. And and tethers on style mission. Impossible style how high up did they go to leave. A note on on Cashman's window imploring him to sign Garrett Cole now I have not fully confirmed that this is Brian Cashman's office but I do know Brian. Cashman saw the note because he is the one that informs us with this video that is posted courtesy of the yes network of three people. Repelling down the side of this building. I said Ethan Hunt Style. Brian Cashman said someone posted a sign on window that said please sign Garrett Cole and then repelled down the building need some perspective man what are they doing. It's not that when important. Wait what do they think he didn't think of that. I think they're doing it for the publicity. I'm thinking they're doing it for this right because he was already reported yesterday that that was their number one priority in free agency. They're wasting their time definitely going to do it. It's certainly not something to risk death over. Those jobs seem terrible though right. We've talked about this before their high paying jobs because their their jobs that are done in a way that way to scare. Oh I it is really dangerous to sign a twenty nine year old. I heard and I'm surprised you guys hadn't told me this. That is good. Eras was an enormous disappointment to you guys for all the places in sports where we have. Our people planted that they put in the broadcast certain phrases for our audience. The where things for our audience would they will be inside jokes all across sports for many years where somebody will do something for just us during broadcasts broadcast so that our listeners will head over there and be delighted and tickled what happened with you guys and Izzy is. He's telling me he choked. He choked the pressure. Sure of the moment got to him. Is the Horace Adana. We're doing Thanksgiving Day Games right or is it the day after the day before Thanksgiving Games and we had them on the day before that to say. Hey Hey we want to infiltrate these broadcasts. Want you to drop rocking with you on a Wednesday. Because the game was going to be on Wednesday. It was actually a Wednesday when we were speaking and the game was going to be later that night. Okay so rocking with do you WanNa Wednesdays what we wanted them to say. And we thought it'd be an easy transition you know. Hey It's good to Arizona South here rocking with you on a Wednesday coach Mobile Blah. We thought you know working in. It'd be fun for us. US Is he to his actually. I'm actually happier with what is he didn't Horton they. Both you should be more busy. 'cause easy said I promise you guys I'm doing with two. I promise you this will get done and then walked out victorious to applause and then didn't do it right so Donna was like no. I'm not doing. I mean it was such an intimidating experience because so first of all let me just tell you technically so we never have a game before the seven o'clock NBA BA game right. Because it's too early normally sportscenter goes right into it but it's the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and we had a college game. Well we taped his whole pre game segment called call courtside and I said to myself well. I'm not going to do it here. It's the first segment of my season right and you know it's it's taped. We would be like okay. No you're going to have to do that again. And so I said I'll save it for maybe a coach's interview or something. Well that whole courtside segment got nixed because the over the game of force went to overtime. So that's less words that I now have in this broadcast and and so I had a plan is my plan giving excuse. No no no you gotta hear this saying here was my plan. My plan was to say because we always say when you come back welcome back to NBA NBA. Wednesday brought to you by state farm. And I was going to say rocking with Brad Stevens and that was going to be good enough right because now you gotta throw a Wednesday in there but it said Wednesday itself is just the word rob. It's thinking days with bread exhibit. This is George Sodano lame attempt at it and it makes no sense conceptually. We talked to your coach before the game. He told us to tell you how fun and your teammates certainly had your back. What was it? I'd like to have that whole group rocking with you. Tonight doesn't count. It doesn't count. He's just saying rocking wants to that. No I would I would have gotten the winds it just in the wrong order but the the thing was is it holds just kind of like came crashing down on showed the cathedral got me like they're literally people from the NBA with headphones on listening to everything. We say I if we asked more than two questions of the coach at we get we get a whip you get beaten. You know what happened. You know what happened here. If Dan made the ask he would've said No. Dan You say rocking with you. I would literally container was filling Ellen in and you have no respect for Phil. I was weighing the power of the Dan lebatardshow versus the power of the NBA and obviously one is slightly stronger than the other. And I choked I choked and plus I have no idea how Brad Stevens would have responded to that he would have said. I'm sorry what are you talking about. What are we doing Brad? Stevens actually cares what you ever ask him. Not You personally. I just wanted to go quick and this whole cathedral thing I mean I have news for you as it was the Wednesday before. I know. You're not exactly iceberg iceberg. Ill was under that. I was going to let that one that was actually clean. You're in the yellow thank you. I am profoundly mound disappointed by this is E. N. Jorges Sodano our family. These guys are these guys. Don't we thought we thought wait. Wait wait I've got the Lakers and heat game next week Friday. Oh yeah sure. That's going to say Miami though in Miami. I can get away with people people on Fridays. What can do on a Friday? Come on you gotTa just say rock with you on a Wednesday with you on a Friday. He'll take that taking. He'll take that fired up with you on a Friday on a freaking with you want to hear it okay. I promise Donlevatar hard photography's not as hard as it's made out to be and now with computers. I mean you can make anything look like anything de it's almost cheating. It's not fair if you push a button and it takes a thousand pictures you're gonNA find a golden batch. There were a lot of photographers. They're taking a thousands of pictures. One got that photograph okay. Good Retort Stugatz. Haven't you ever passed by offers. I guarantee you that child was taken. We didn't just your CH- that you heard if you're right I can't each ear with that. He does a good cameras touch lebatardshow with this to God's own. ESPN I'm radio ESPN. Radio is presented by Progressive Insurance guests on the Dan. lebatardshow appear via the Shell Pennzoil performance line. And now your sportscenter update the twins assigned pitcher. Michael Pineda Two year twenty million dollar contract. The padres agreed to a to a trade for outfielder Tommy Fam- and to a prospect. Jake Krohn worth from the raise as in exchange for outfielder Hunter Renfro and Second Base Prospect Xavier Edwards and finally Huey Lewis and. The news have announced their first album in almost twenty years. It's titled Old Weather and marked for release on February fourteenth fraud latest headlines and information tune into sports center on ESPN radio all throughout the day. Put It on the poll. Guillermo does anyone WanNa see old guy. Rockers making comebacks twenty years after their last album. You don't like Louis. I did like you Lewis and the news in in in the eighties. I'm asking the general question having seen some of these guys in their old age It it can be a real struggle between being really inspiring inspiring and being Super Sad. When they get old they were actually really good? Live Act but I think they stopped performing live and then cease recording because Huey Lewis was actually actually going deaf so I'm not really sure what happens if they even plan to tour this album but great to see them back love Huey Lewis and the news at Lebatardshow on twitter is how you vote on the Poles. We're GONNA go to the bucket of death in a second but is good Ariza's with us now this hour and I'm just curious you got any theories for me on why the NBA's ratings are down as large as their down Right now well not being a television executive knows all the reasons and you know if anybody knew the real reasons we'd all figure them out by now but just in terms of interest I'd like to get these guys opinions on this too. Because you know it used to be and I don't know if we were at a point where we were at such a peak level all of basketball that we're letdown now because seventy three win golden state team Steph curry just changing the game Bob Rowan James Arguably the best player ever in his pete right in his prime and these dramatic situations the Kevin Durant. It's possible we've just having like a letdown just a hangover from from what was arguably you know arguably one of the best five six year stretches in NBA history. And then you throw the little details like okay time-wise out West Austin some injuries. The stars are all out West load management. I don't feel compelled like John. Asante Takubo is one of the most unique talents league has ever seen. I don't feel compelled to stop what I'm doing and watch him play a game. I think the only guy this year that I feel that way about feel that way about so far is Luca and I I will feel that way about Zion when he comes back but there's just not appointment television right now in the league whereas before man if Steph was playing I mean Lebron at any any game any point of the season but there's other games other matchups Kevin Durant versus people. Where you're just like okay? I WanNa see that now. It's sort of like a wait and see where the dramas really going beat. People become bigger superstars if they threatened to leave if they become a problem if there's all sorts of mystery if they changed teams and then ultimately if they changed teams. That's when I think recreate will actually go to that next year superstar because if you just quietly signs an extension and Milwaukee I think people care the same amount that but you look at. What's been missing this year? So far the little things that make you WanNa Watch not just the highlights but the actual experience kyrie irving not being in Boston. That didn't have anything to do with basketball. That had to do everything about I wanted to watch that happen. The drama's not there for US right now. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving playing together. Anywhere would be amazing to watch. And it's partially again because of their personalities analogies and that dynamic. I just don't like watching great basketball. It's almost like you take for granted what you're watching with. Lebron Anthony Davis because it's amazing basketball two of the most versatile basketball players we've ever seen and it's just like yeah they're really good. That's not really interesting storyline counterpoint. James Harden hard to watch. I mean heart for some people for some people hard to watch. I'm not one to watch. Twenty four free throws but that's just one random example at one example this year. I think the other ones are still all but you can hear this with a thousand is in things. So I don't know I guess the more interesting part to me would be to rank them because golden state going from that kind of relevant to just burning up ashes and now terrible. There's no no reason to watch the team that you've been watching for the last four years zero you don't. There is not a reason to check in with any of their games. But I don't know what I put on the top of the top three market right. I don't know what I put at the top of the list though. I think it would be that. You can't have both combat. You can't have the combination of that long the season and you're not going to give me these delicious drama and this is this is why Adam silver is currently. I wouldn't say panicking but it seat which seemed like I panic. Move to now house. Say Okay now. We need something different because we we milked everything we could out of that era. And now it's GonNa need to change it because we're not getting the next Lebron or the next warriors years right now we're getting more parody and it's good for fan bases in terms of whether they have a chance to win but it is good for entertainment and drama time now for the bucket of death. The the grim reaper has emerged. And we all hate this thing. I had Carolina last week against Washington. A sure thing. It was a good thing to pull from the bucket. Of course I lose. I now eight different penalties. Anthony you go. I know STU gods. He's got the Golden Helmet would've life. Were all sure. He cheated against Chris Looking in the camera and not happy about the fit and may maybe a little tight in the upper area. I'm sorry I meant the reaper. The got the Tampa. Bay buccaneers go. Sit Outside we'll visit you in the penalty box you just you. Just reveal the identity of the reaper. That's only gave a first name name. That is the gender neutral. Could Start with the K- yeah that's true but although he can pick from the penalty box I mean and the reaper could use the exercise. I'll be over there. I'M GONNA put backs Tampa Bay helmet. I don't trust you. They are minus three at home against Indianapolis Trust James. I would have kept that I think. Oh God the dolphins. I don't Adam gaze at the jets. They're five and a half point dog. Oh you're stuck with that. That is right there. The reaction to the Miami Dolphins for the last twenty years. Oh God billy is now going to select all of these lines brought not by. Caesar's billy is going to reach into the bucket of death. And what do you have. Billy got the forty nine New Orleans. I think they're underdogs. It's another Toback Jack O.. Putting back the forty niners my friends at Caesar's tell me that line it's two and a half. There are couple of big favorites. You want Minnesota you want Green Bay. Want the bears from from last night if you That'll be an automatic win for you think I'm like in this. Patrick mahomes got the breaking. You got a good one great upgrade minus thirteen tariff Tara favourite against lions again. I Lost Carolina at home minus ten last week against Washington. Nothing but evil in that bucket. Right raiders leaders. Yes Oakland is two and a half point dog at home against Tennessee. Tennessee gotta get back to five hundred somehow. Aw the New Orleans Saints. I think good in their relations your two and a half point favorite against one of the best teams in the NFL. Great I would be afraid of the forty nine hundred in here. Okay so the Indianapolis Colts and pulled the face mask off of another helmet. Do you want the colts the cold fifteen yard penalty the colts are on the road. Add Tampa mine Plus Three plus three is not kicking. I will keep Kim really. What's he doing? He's hurt. He's hurt so is the reaper. Coming in here. Is the reaper. GonNa go find izzy. Wherever is going in their first? And then and you gotta give the reaper sometime. I feel like I'm wrong. Because is he is. It just seems like an unnecessary hurdle. But he just referred to the reaper by name. The reaper first genderless. The report has no name. It's the Damn Bird. How do you know who the routier's respect the rules? What is this all all black bucket? Plus Death Oh so you get the fine bucket I get. I get the fine bucket immediately. I'd get all of the money in the fine bucket but I immediately have to die. Yeah I got very scared this one black and I thought it was going to end up being the coming of death. A black helmet of death. How much money is in the fine twenty three bucks an Eh dog with this twenty eight bucks five dollars you've taken from me? Just be me getting my money back. Because it's not like Stu gods that's pace anything. There's writing on this helmet at the Likud. Saudi course man he got me got me dirty last week picking attack. Where are they this week? That's a good question are they add. They're not at the SEC championship game. The Big Ten who knows I don't know all right is he. Go ahead and collect act is he is going to select from the bucket of death. Don't have to like bathing eggnog. Before the season ends yeah. There's cardinals I don't even check. I'm putting it don't even check okay. Arizona's a two and a half point dog at home against Pittsburgh there. Oh my God the New New York giants though time Manning yes the hall of fame is riding on the line according to this is a setup game for him. He's going to have an amazing game against the eagles.

Tim Ryan and announcer for the forty niners. was suspended for one game. A really pathetic suspension. And it's basically the forty niners just sort of looking looking around and being like is this bad. How bad is pretty bad? Okay one game that enough everyone good game two games too much one game all right. We'll go to one game He said that the dark skinned end of Lamar Jackson helped him. Hi Hi waterlogged football and this was very very wrong very wrong and then we wondered but was right and And now that Richard Sherman is saying he's got a point.

Didn't apologize to him. Just went black guy black guy or did you just go to Richard Sherman and sort of the community black guy leader of the black guys. I'm I'm not sure how this goes. Okay he apologized. I felt so awkward for him like having to wander around their Yam suspended. How long did you get one game? As is that a real suspension. It's kind of effects especially if they had to do it because I'm white do they. Uphold the suspension if he gets support. Kenny appeal this. We thought he should appeal it. We were. We were arguing yesterday. Three the ship. He should take this. 'cause the highest court now Richard Sherman same because Richard Sherman said. I wasn't as outright initially said. Of course I accepted apologize. I wasn't as outraged. Everybody else was because Richard Sherman actually on causes if you talk to him cares about real and meaningful racism. not this nonsense yeah. He said he made valid points. and Richard Sherman was on that defense. That had trouble seeing the ball. I guess he just go to. The club would be indisputable if you just use. Sports put science though if it doesn't work cool suspended. If it is bring your practice doesn't want any part of this hitting everybody wants to run away.

"Is baseball tonight the podcast. This is the baseball tonight. Podcast for tuesday april twentieth. Two thousand one producing from his home studio in the foothills of connecticut. is taylor. swink buster. Only working from my home studio in new york on monday afternoon. We got good news from the atlanta braves. Who say that. Ronald kuni junior. I had to come out of sunday night's game pointing to his midsection showing discomfort. Well he's dated day with this injury. This mild of what the braves are saying is a mild abdominal strain. So hopefully going to be back in their lineup sooner rather than later the phillies played three players on the injured list due to kobe. Nineteen protocols in two more coaches weren't with the team for game. Monday against the san francisco giants source told the espn's jesse rogers the one player test positive in the others replaced on the list due to contact left handed. Reliever jose alvarado. Lefty reliever lefty star matt moore and infielder. Ronald theresa's went on the injured list. Cincinnati reds outfielder. Nick cassie on us lost his appeal of a two game suspension. Tell you remember that play that. I'm still a little bit surprised. It got suspended and be that. He lost his appeal because what he did he slid in old plenty stood up and he flexed over the over. The pitcher was covering home plate and then he kind of backed off. I'm like really to gauge for that. What did you think. That's lame as i said at the time. I this is so silly. This this was kind of a fun. Little thing that we were talking about and to make it suspension where the is kind of crazy in molina was the one charging around and he got off the hook. Yeah he didn't get suspended. And i look i thought initially when cassiano janas got this two game suspension that upon appeal they reduce it to one and everyone who would move on like it was a plea bargain but no they kept it in place and i still not really sure exactly whether or not he should have been suspended in the first place. Miami marlins outfielder starling martinez a fractured rib and will be sidelined for at least week. This is the announcement coming from the marlins He did that taking a swing the of the day all right. Let's get to the good stuff. Jd martinez led a red sox. Blow out yesterday. At fenway park. Swing a high fly ball jumped on this baby. That's deep to left back back back at it is gone. Gave o'brien nessin with that call. Lucas giolito the white sox got absolutely obliterated and to his credit. After the game he talked about how he really felt like he let the team down with the hole that he dug for them early in this game. The cardinals had a grey day against joe. Ross and the nationals in washington. So it's the young at the plate and the pitch at balls head high in the air to left field. It's back to the track ten. The wall slammed her paul young his hit his second home. Run of the game Big fly paul young and the cardinals tack on four more. My goodness that ball carry from cammo. Actually young hit his first homer off joe ross and the cardinals continued to feast on the relievers. That followed him. Making moves is brought to you by lincoln jobs.

I texted the day before and told you not to be nervous to go so nervous. And i wasn't. I didn't think i was nervous. And i was on. My spain. fits show right before and like just literally they were like. Oh my gosh And then talking to you. And i was getting text messages from people. I know. joe davis it was there with dodgers and just like. Don't screw this up. And i was like what's the big d. We played kent lake in my mind. Softball player my whole life. I can throw a ball with my eyes closed and hit a target. It's not a big deal but then has they did. I didn't know they were do this. Full video in the may lake. It was like this. I saw the video and they covered basically your whole life. A frank developed through it more pitches in anybody else name if major league baseball and the video that they had for him was probably a lot shorter than yours the introduction. I should say exactly so. I'm thinking they're going to be an. Here's just going to throw out the first pitch over one. I'm throwing out the ball and then it's over but now it was like this huge big video thing and i'm like oh my gosh. I can't figure this out. Plus because the cove. Ed you're throwing it from the stanton some like on stairs like trying to throw it down to someone that was in right field and i'm like you know i got this but i'm like i gotta take something off the back one. I could like face plant down the stairs. Which would be like really awesome. That'll make highlight reel or skyrocketed nail. Mookie betts out center like bats not gonna work you I just took a little bit. I threw changeup it. Still strike some proud of that. But i was like kind of wish i had like really just reared back and who cares if i follow like i gotta throw it as hard as i can right i did i thrown out a first pitch and wanna say four or five times in various places you well but i but i what i learned during that time was is that no matter. You know whether you're you or whether you're former player the adrenaline can overtake you to some degree and you have to get warmed up like you need to get warmed up and that's You know 'cause you don't want to have one of those moments where able to warm up before he threw up the per now now and they even said they're like normally we take down town naked mobster like because the cova i mean was the weirdest thing it was just like. Here's the ball your throat from this step and i was like you've gotta be kidding and then here comes video like all with my career stanford olympics here she is it like gosh and like but watching the dodgers just like yelling at me like just harassing me. Like don't screw up and my heart was like pounding. My i feel like three times over the course of my life. Why am i stress. But yeah i was. I was definitely nervous. I'm just glad it's your strike hindsight. I wish i'd just unleashed for wednesday. Well you would have cared if it went sailing because joe would've gone viral i I threw out the first pitch before i think. A double a all star game in jackson tennessee in two thousand eleven. And i think it was ryan. Flaherty was catching that day. He went to vanderbilt. So he's looking out for me. And i i want to like you. I wanted to fire it Because i play catch all the time. And and i boy if he hadn't been six two or six three or whatever it is. I think i might have been in trouble because it was a high strike. There's no question all right. You were there for a scary moment last night. Between the dodgers mariners. Mookie betts being hit by a pitch. Tell me what you saw. It was scary And it was near the end of the game. And he was nailed remember. I think it was like ninety. Four hundred miles an hour you saw nearly on some part of the bat his back arm and he dropped to his knees and i was in a section with obviously a bunch mariner fans and even the to feel the entire stadium just silent unless the recognition even though he was booed when he was young because he's such a huge star. You know people just you know obviously anti world champion dodgers. But they recognize that. This is one of the greatest players in the entire game. And he's down on his knees and there was just such a feeling and i thought in the moment i'm like oh no like a got his back elbow like he's going to be and i. I was like nervous because this is someone you just i mean. People were just staring at him while he in center field whether he had a baller. Not hugh people talking about. George eating yelling Immune somebody just you. You come to the ballpark and gonna watch. It doesn't matter what team you're cheering for your just a fan of the game. So hearing dave roberts say that it got most of his forearm. it's probably just going to be. A deep contusion is what they're guessing we'll know more obviously today but in that moment to see him dropped his knees put his head down for a good while but he got up and he just kept shaken as his arm and ended up at first base. But i'll tell you what it. It's one of those where i think just like fernando tatis junior. When he was hurt it was. It was scary because the game needs the stars. Monkeys definitely one of. Yeah and when dave. And you know dave i mean. He's a glass half full personality and i saw what he told reporters that kind of wondered if part of his explanation fingers crossed. You know that he's that they're hopeful that That he's going to be okay and as you say we're going to learn more later. We learn more yesterday about ronald kuni junior He had to come out of sunday. Night's game after pointing to his abdomen. The at a what the braves are saying. They mild abdominal muscles. You're right. I mean fernando. Tat's junior goes down ronald kuni. Junior goes down now. We're sitting around wondering about monkey. Bats come on like the baseball. Gods need to treat us better than this right. Especially because we're still in april over the course of the season we're gonna see a lot of great players get hurt just the nature of one hundred sixty two games but within the span of a couple of weeks to see three of the best Not definitely not. I mean with us. I can't imagine going play For a little bit and not in the moment you know just to see his pain Junior to see him immediately after staying in the game and then later coming out it's a domino strains even though it's mild are tricky and i know you know this until the same way about hand injuries. Yup it's just such a huge heart of. I mean that's the reason why it's called the core. It's it's a huge core part of everything you do fielding running especially hitting a deceleration going to get all nerdy on you but i mean i just remember as a hit or any kind of tweak in any part of your abdomen with that. You can't have to make sure that you're one hundred percent. It's not something you come back at. Eighty percent work through Just because of what it provides the rest your body and everything you do and if you come back a little too soon you can make it a lot worse. And which is why. I suspect that the conversation between the braves and it kunia junior will be how you feeling in the day that he says he's one hundred percent they'll say okay. We'll take two more days. No exactly that's when people here mild. Donald strain i love that yes. The word is mild. But you gotta add longer length of time than you would pretty much. any other. Injury smiled because of words located on his body so we have a lot of candidates for the most unlikely developments early in the season. The mariners who you saw last night eleven in six. I wouldn't have guessed that the red sox offense being this dominant them being in first place the yankees being in last place in another one. I wanted to ask you about after we got a bleacher. Tweet yesterday wanna note. Ted lowry hitting three thirty three so far this year. He's thirty seven years old. He's played in every oakland game after playing in just nine games for the mets. The last two years in which you went over seven. I gotta tell you you know when he reached free agency at the end of that mets deal during the course of wintertime. I thought you know what that might be. The end for. Jed lowrie i guess not. Yeah i didn't think so. But i mean he. He lives in the town. I live in Part of the year. I was able to see him a lot this off season and even talk to them when i found that they were going to bring him in the as where to bring him in and he was going to start opening day just like just to hear his process and obviously he was with the mets when i was a part of the mets organization so just to see his frustrations here ever seen the last two years not being able to get the surgery that he wanted. He needed that. He knew he needed to finally do that. This offseason season he was like this is the first time i've been able to do the things i need to do. And be healthy and you could just feel and of course like know is anyone you're like i'm glad he feels this way and is so confident to go out first of all get picked up by a team and get remember. This offseason like missing. Last year's like nobody was getting picked up. And so that. See that as kind of last minute that eleven th bring him in and then start him at second base. That first game i was i was just more excited. Leaves able to get back on the field But to to see the success that he's had it further. Bruce how much be able to show everyone. When i'm healthy. There's a reason. I signed this deal two years ago three years ago now with the mets and was able to continue my career. If was able to you know it's just been fun to see how hard he worked to get back out there and honestly for the as and was aching wayne streak right now. The the team that are right now is exciting to watch day. Jesse rogers on espn dot. Com has an interesting story in which he talks to a lot of evaluators ab- struggles in particular their struggles against fastballs. Their offense has been terrible so far this year but the amazing thing is their numbers are crazy. Batum particular against fastballs fast balls in the zone. is jesse wrote From two thousand sixteen to two thousand eighteen the combination of hobby. Baya's anthony rizzo and kris bryant. Hit three oh seven with a five fifty nine. Slugging percentage against fastballs but those numbers have dropped since then culminating to thirty five in just a four nineteen in percentage over their last index Baseball worst batting average and slugging. Just fourteen against spoils crazy. It's crazy bad beer now. We're last year. And i felt like kind of throughout threw it out as a odds kobe. It's when tonnage it with a lot of individual players it struggled. I remember doing a couple of cubs and just being blown away by this team. I mean there's a lot of struggles that are within that lineup. There wasn't that team that we've seen even since they won one at all with those key players but to see them continue a trend that i really felt was just so weird blitz. Last year has been just blowing me away specially. It was three guys. I mean the bat speed of hobby or biased and yes it makes sense when he chases pitches out of the zone and breaking balls. And you know that out parts like okay. That's how he's gonna struggle but to see him. Struggle against fastballs just blows my mind away because away his swing the way he sat up of the. There's few people have better hands in the game that he does. It will get to that fastball. Obviously anthony rizzo kris. Bryant tubes is proven as jesse Rogers wrote about the tape. It smells her entire career so what is happening in in. That's that's to me. Is i think what blows me. Away is started last year. Sign weird year again at the fact that is continuing now into the first weeks of the season. It's definitely troubling. And i liked what david ross told us on sunday that he basically has gone to his players and said look forget all that site. That normal Flip work you've done with the coach to the side in flipping balls to the hitters with a slap them into a net. He's encouraging his players. Go and find a pitching machine. That generates a lot of speed and hit high-velocity. I think he wants to hit head on. Just i honestly. I'm surprised they have been start with that spring. Just because i feel like it's a great way to get time in your eyesight. All the is tracking. Like if you throw something out there like nine hundred miles an hour on a machine and you're just even bunting tracking it. It just gets just like any muscle gets the is ready in trained for high velocity and then allowing progressively your body to catch up to that be able to. We see now even within the game. I mean dismay was searching for the dodgers last night in hitting one hundred miles. An hour consistently in the mariners had very minimal swing and miss. I mean the hit. Two home runs they. Were you know being able to barrel up and you can just make contact with one hundred consistently. And that's i mean that's the thing now it's like guys throwing up ninety one hundred miles an hour and yes it's gonna face people somewhere but nothing like it would've been five years ago so to me. That's that's part of what i totally with david. Ross absolutely that should have been done like and maybe it. What's but like back in spring just part of your training to kind of get all right. Let's get used to what we're going to see in season. Which is a lot of high velocity fastballs jess well in good luck today recovering from the traumatic first pitch experience. Yeah right exactly. Well here in seattle. And i'm not gonna lie buster to be able to be at a game as an. It's been a long time since i benedict game doing games from home. I know you've had the opportunity to be in stadiums. But i walked in the hotel with my husband. A the ballpark was seventy degrees in seattle. Anyone who's ever been in seattle with the sun out. I i don't think there's a better place so anyway it was. I was giddy. Just what. I felt like. I was ten years old. My husband was like. Can you walk slower literally like skipping excited to a ball game. So it's cool to have fans back in the stands. It was awesome the actually be one of them. Even if i was nervous person throwing the first pitch up on all right thanks buster. This is the numbers game with. Sarah lang's producer from l. Dot com. sarah with that open. You have right there. I gotta tell you mean it's so cool and the guitar ribs starts and then it just gets cut off. And i don't want to hear the rest of the guitar riff. What about you as always smiling here as it comes in. But yeah i mean i could listen to the whole thing but i'd rather talk with you so Yesterday we got word. I got off the plane flying back to chicago and there were frantic texts from various people Who i work for work with. And they're saying brian cashman. There's going to be a press conference press. Availability twelve thirty. Am is something. Twelve thirty pm Something big coming in my instinct was no A i know. Brian cashman a long time and i know that his his belief is that when the team is struggling he should make himself available and be accountable but also be while in new york. There's always speculation about change common or is that person going to get fired as the manager going to be fired. Last yankees manager to be fired. Midseason was bucky dent in nineteen. Ninety like this is not something they do on a regular basis. Now not at all and so you know you asked me the question of is that the are the last team or the longest team to have done that has team done that. Sense and my instinct. When you asked me this question was of course. i mean that. That's a very yankee thing. To be the longest ago having done it makes total sense but ran it and it's not so they're two teams that have actually gone longer. Since changing managers in season and those teams are the minnesota twins and the san francisco giants. The minnesota twins have not changed managers in season since nineteen eighty-six and the giants. It was in nineteen eighty. Five so all in that same range basically a five year span there but the yankees actually are not the longest to go team to have done this. I think you would agree with me. It is just shocking statistic given how Generally speaking in a major media market people lose their minds. Absolutely i mean you know. I was seeing this an thing. We see the announcement of the castro press conference and you see the conversation on twitter. You have people saying things. And i was sitting here like there's just no way that's not first of all that's not where the fault is right now. I mean this team isn't hitting we'll get into that further and second of all it's just you know new york media it's always. I mean any big city. It's always going to be further but it's interesting to me the twins and the giants as those teams that have gone longer since changing managers and season. I guess that. If i thought about it i might have guessed the giants because i couldn't just off the top of my head. Think of an instance. And i think the twins i mean this honestly reminds me of in football. You think of the pittsburgh steelers and how. They've had like three coaches all time. I know it's a couple more than that. But you think of those teams that just stay steady. Even when they're not great they're just going to stick with the guy. And i can see how these franchises might be on the list to and i bet you when you inform your mother that the giants team that has had the most ability through the years. She'll be really proud as a longtime giants fan. I text after we talk care all at her now all right. Let's play the numbers game number. Three so number. Three is forty eight so shane bieber. Now has forty eight strikeouts this season on sunday. He was absolutely unbelievable. I'm watching this martin. His last few starts. He's almost like he isn't going to get to ten strikeouts early on. And all of a sudden he ends up with ten eleven twelve. Thirteen whatever it might be so forty eight strikeouts in his first four appearances this year. That's tied with nolan. Ryan in nineteen seventy eight for the most for any pitcher through four appearances in season. The great part was he was too shy of nolan ryan. It seemed like he was done for the day. Ninety seven pitches. So i saw the tweet out and then he came back out so i have all these people telling me. He forty eight strikeouts not forty six because he came back out. 'cause he's unbelievable. He's the first pitcher ever with ten strikeouts specifically in each of his first four starts in a year. I mean i. It's every single time he comes out. It's like you need to get the history book ready number. Two number two is third so shane bieber gets a lot of credit for that and i want to give him. You know all of that love for what he did on sunday but corbin burns this year has been really really good also with some really cool strikeout record so wanted to make sure he gets his do heading into start today so he has thirty strikeouts and walks. This season is the first player ever with thirty. Strikeouts no walks through his first three starts in a season and so the record that he's chasing now pretty fun one. It's the most strikeouts before your. I walk in season so the overall record since eighteen ninety three when the mound was moved to its current. Distance is kenley jansen. Twenty seventeen with fifty one. But if we're curious about starters. That record is adam wainwright in twenty thirteen. He had thirty five strikeouts before he reached his first walk. So corbin burns pitching today. This strikeout when he has to his thirty fifth strikeout if he does before he walks anybody he could tie. And then pass at least starters record number. One number one is to ten. So that's what the yankees are having this season through fifteen games that's their worst batting average through fifteen games in a season since they hit one eighty six in nineteen sixty eight which was their worst through fifteen games in any season of course nineteen sixty eight year of the pitcher. We know all that happened but it wasn't just the yankees being bad that year. That was not great either. They've only had three seasons overall or they had a lower batting average through fifteen games. And they have this aaron. It was nineteen sixty eight and nineteen thirteen. One thousand nine hundred sixty six so. We really haven't seen this for them. I would say that thi know stands sitting at home. Who whether optimistic or pessimistic. If you're optimistic and you know the number that's been out there is is there. Were start since one thousand nine hundred seven and that worked out okay. I would say they weren't hitting like this in nineteen ninety seven they were hitting better and if you look overall at what they're doing it's kind of no surprise. They have the record that they have but we know how much talent is there. I i think that the offense can get it together. My question is more pitching because we've talked about how was very high risk high reward rotation. I think we're seeing the results. That high risk. Yeah they need their offense get going. I mean that's the talk about captain. Obvious with statement right there but to build in the margin for error that they needed with other parts of their team. And that's part of what's going on here and i am with you. I think eventually they're to start to hit and if they don't start to head then we will be talking about changes coming with the team at some point At the end of the year before you go over the weekend reported at the cubs Leading into the two thousand and twenty season before a. Kobe manifested offered hobby. Baya's deal somewhere in the range of one hundred and eighty million dollars. John hayman reports somewhere. One sixty one seventy either way. It was really big money at that. Time what do you make of that. I mean i think that seeing that number when you put that out. I mean that made sense to me as deal for him. I think he could have some trouble. You know matching that this offseason. We've talked about you. Know lindores now off the market for this offseason. But they're still a bunch of really good shortstops and i will say he's an electric player. He's such a fun player to watch when he's on especially his defense everything else. But i don't necessarily see his production over the last few years as in the same category of the stories in the corey segers carlos correa the other guys that we will be talking about at that position. I think that for him. He's he's always been kind of a unicorn with kind of bad plate discipline and it works for him for a couple of years absolutely. But it's anyone who knows the game knows that that's not necessarily supposed to work. And i think that that's what we've seen especially over the last two years and you guys had a great graphic. You ran on baseball looking at the pictures. He swung at in twenty twenty. One and the pitchers rollie kuni junior song. And obviously that's maybe the best hitter in baseball right now. This exact second in kunia. And then i'll be by who is struggling. You saw. i mean it was all over. The place pitches that he was sleeping. And i just think that that may be one specific thing but it's just a clue into whether his game is necessarily built for long term success right. Sarah always enjoyed talking with a k. Can you email me those notes on the yankees office. Doing a sportscenter hit later. And i'm going to steal from you absolutely do and thank you for having me. Thanks her covers baseball for espn and spends a lot of days around the new york yankees and yesterday was an off day for the yankees marley. But you knew that you knew the conversation in you after this lousy start and we'll get into that in a second. How are you doing before we get going now. We're doing around you know we're we have baseball back. And even though what happened with the twins reminds us that it's still not neural yet Buster we're getting exactly. You got the same type of texts that i need yesterday. When you know. Brian cashman the yankees. General manager was going to hold press availability. Twelve thirty people are wondering someone going to get fired is. they're going to be chained with staffan. We just talked about. Sarah lang's yankees have fired a manager in seasons in nineteen ninety in my instinct. Right away when i saw this was This is classic brian. Cashman has been the general managers for more than twenty years. Basically saying you know. What on an off day. I know these guys going to be looking for a story and i'm going to go out there and i'm going to be the red meat for them. What did you think absolutely order. I think that brian cashman esta tro. That he is in baseball. And you know the cluster. Is that on off day. All of who cover the yankees have done that for a long time. Well packs cash right just checked and he literally you know the yankees sent this email out specifically stating brian. Cashman will court. And that's precisely what he and his strategy when when he has these is he's like come at me with any question you got no exactly i mean i. I asked her baby more entertaining. Reference brand cochran. The first one that i asked him what you know what the yankees show so far with their five and ten record. What kind of team have they shown being. He relished a question. You said you know. We're an easy in keep right now. But that's not who we are and then what barron cashman does is that. He decided to make this statement and his very important statement and and in my question which is not what i asked him but he went ahead and said the reason why. I'm on your right now. Because i want to state that we're not pointing fingers and this is our team and we are already funk for what's happening and everything will change at choose baker interesting how he chewed her. These moments and relatives. I mean it's really amazing. It was forty five minute. You know basically you know as you and i were talking before coming on calling it. The filibuster right. When cashman goes all of us are mode does exactly what happened and basically just taking all the play. It's like here. You can come at me but don't come my manager and don't come at my players. Yeah he reminded me yesterday. And listening to that too. When i covered david cone The longtime pitcher when he was on the yankees what he would tell the other players was look. Just telling me stink and say it's your fault and even if you don't believe it just say because then they're really no questions to follow up with that. Criticize brian cashman style. And anyone can say you know whatever they want to frame. Cashman has done but brian crowd and one of the things that he does very very well if he takes that excecutive role very clearly. Like for example. When you have a problem with any employee in any industry right when you had the manager ticket on and say this is my responsibility. I mean charge. Then that really kind of the blame a little bit but it'd be basically. Brian cashman came on because opening your columnist and every paper in town that fire improved and your teeth fixed and you want to see there saying you know what i'm right here come at all. I think it's pretty simple where they are marley there. They are where they are. Because they're not hitting twenty six in batting average tied for twenty fourth and runs giancarlo stanton hitting under two hundred and laboratories is hitting in. Aaron hicks is hitting under two hundred and a lot of guys are not performing to their regular levels offensively. I do think over one hundred and sixty two games Those guys Their performances will stabilize. I don't know if i think is a team built for success in the postseason. Because there's not a lotta bursts activity in the offense but in the regular season. Yeah eventually the turnaround and you know what if they don't guess. What is that a very good team. I mean one of the things that that. I've been kinda confused the identity of this game and i've covered the do for very long and one of the things that's happening is that when they asked me in the previous you and i do for you. Yeah you know who's gonna win the afc one of the things that you look at it. Free classic categories. They're starting rotation the relievers right and then they're hitting their lineup and the yankees were the only team that could fight on those three and kind of questioning their starting pitching but you certainly did not worry about the relievers that the time with that britain at that time and of course their lineup and none of these things are clicking right now. Well let's be fair. The receivers were doing wonderful job until starting pitcher just starting pitching can hope that anything they can throw any innings cool so they in a little bit tax but the lineup. It's not doing their job. And that's the main thing the one thing that you been. Not worry about the yankees. They're like really like this line of when you look at it up and down. It's incredible at this point of the yankees beating. Strikeout thanks to garrett cole and not in home runs and runs sports and that's what's really interesting about this team and one of the things that happened. I like an to what happened with gary sanchez. No one cared. How many passports. Gary had at that point when he was hitting thirty something homerun exactly what's happening to the yankees so every glaring mistake that they make every base running mistake. Every you know every defensive gaff is magnified. Because they're not kidding. But i really think i'm with you. This is a team that is going to win over ninety gay. There's gonna be fine. People are freaking out. Stop throwing stuff on the field. Okay that you're frustrated with your team but don't throw stuff on the field and you know what the are going to be fine because these things do self correct in a one sixty two season. If it was six sixteen. I would not be so sure. Okay the guy who most surprised about with a slow start is not john. Carlos stanton who you and i both know. And i've seen he tends to be. A streaky player has his ups and downs. And right now. He's into down and eventually he'll go on a run and some of his numbers will stabilize. It's not aaron hicks. Who also in the past has been striking gleyber. Torres surprises me. Because i thought he looked great spring training. I knew precisely. That's where we're going to go because one of the guys that are really looking for training on both sides of the ball that defensive work does have shown such improvement and after plate. He was clicking in earlier than anybody else right. Aaron judge started. Well erin. Hit close in color alway flow. And it's so streaky. So we know what happened with gary sanchez. We don't really know who he is at the plate right now. But then you didn't worry about that when you have to start worrying about laboratories then the yankees have problem and another one. That's not clicking. It's also clinton frazier. We took in frazier in spring just performing so well and being so so incredible. Like a like a park in that lineup. That really needs one. And that's one thing that laboratory suck for that lineup. He's that little park. Logan that's not happening and just a follow up on on clint frazier. You're right. i'm surprised. He struggled at the outset. I've seen this happen with other games. It's not only the yankees but when eighteen goes through extensive struggles offensively the guy who ultimately pays the price is the youngest least established player. Because you know they're not taking stanton out of lineup you know they're not you know if dj lemay who was part of the problem. They have not taken him out. It's going to be the youngest guys which is even today in new york columns written about somebody else. Clint frazier spot. That's just a natural away. Goes i mean and obviously. Clint frazier very public. Fail three one of these things so easy parts and that's really really unfair for a player. That is incredibly talented. And who hasn't been able to even flare regularly yet and this is something that we predict that we talked about this when the yankees signed brett gardner we knew brit. Garner is the kind of gone with not going to sit on the bench and when situations are happening like now that the yankee struggling who else are you gonna put in that lineup. And the guy who is a better defensive player at this point in his career and the last guy to be in team. That actually knows what it is. Go to a row theory so it definitely is important right for them to have gardner but then takes away. Playing time from clint frazier. Who needs it. He ever going to be a major leaguer in starting left fielder. If you don't put seventy seven on the field right all right marley. Thanks for doing this. Of course gets you have a very nice day. Thinking that you need just let me know. Bleacher tweets already buster bleacher tweets for tuesday. First up. we have tom neiman at nineteen. He writes in with the white sox using to position players in one game to pitch in seeing other teams. Do the same this early. Do you think we'll see more position. Players pitch and games this year due to less minor league players delayed the season etc dom. I gotta say it's been a surprise that there have been this many position players used early. We see the we saw. The the sports seemed to veer away from that last year. The conversation within the sport was yeah. This is kind of getting out of control position players pitching so to see early this year. Yeah i. I think that there's going to be an adjustment. And if you told me that behind the scenes the players association was raising red flags about this in its conversations with major league baseball. That wouldn't surprise me. Yeah they're not playing minor-league games. They are playing You know having a competition it these alternate sites so there certainly is pitching available next. We have chris rock at chris brown fifty seven. He writes in thoughts on cassiano suspension. Being upheld. I think it's ridiculous. You received two games. Molina received nothing when it was molina. Who barreled through the up and grab on by the back of the neck. Violating covid protocols chris. I think we're on the same page with this. One hundred percent chris taylor and i the top of the show. We talked about this. I was surprised that it was being. I thought for sure that he was going to be reduced in two to one game Major league baseball come on guys next. We have john tacona at giannakou writes in williams asked to. Do is tied for the lead in jahra. Will he get any cy young votes or is this a small sample size phenomenon. Yeah johnny is a prepped. In i was going through these questions of sipping coffee and he made me spit on my copy burst out laughing because of course. Sds a position player. And i love. I love the the irony in your question. It was perfect and last one day. Matt upton at matt are upton rates in i know acoustic junior is young and the future of the game and that he plays on the east coast and should be a main story. But what about jed lowrie start to the season can he get a few mentions for his start and comeback also the as decision to pick him up. Yeah matt you heard me talking with jessica minoza about about jed lowrie will tell you that that conversation was prompted by you. 'cause i saw your question on twitter yesterday and i was like you know what. That's a fair question. I got the stanford alum coming up. I know jess will have some perspective. Jed lowers good star. Already that does it. For bleacher tweet. Tash bleacher tweets on twitter and police follow rate and review this podcast. Wherever you listen to your podcasts. It's in for today.

Winter Meetings: Day 3

"I'm loud and bold radio announcer. Who was hired to tell you about the loud and bold flavors and Tyson anytime there's chicken snacks? There boldly says it full of flavor. Thanks for listening by Tyson. NATO's chicken bold flavorful chicken's necks baseball tonight. The podcast this. This is the baseball tonight. PODCAST for Wednesday several eleven two thousand. Nineteen I'm buster. Only producer. Troy Farkas his back in Bristol and Troy I'm not a deep sleepers whereas you know and I woke up last night at midnight back here in the east and I woke up at midnight. One Minute after the news dropped on Garrett Cole I feel like that that might qualify for Spidey senses. Did you happen with you so I was actually out late last night. Buster until like eleven or so and yeah I went to bed and so normally i. I was in the window awake where I could have actually been awake where something happened. But Alas happened at midnight and I didn't find Alma. Yankees friends. Texted me in this morning. All right before the deal went down with Gary Coleman the Yankees Brian Cashman. The Yankee General Manager talked about Garrett Cole you know he's an exciting dynamic Anamika leader of a staff and and so he's going to secure great contract no matter where it happens to be and clearly. We're we're considered in my mindset. We're part of the heavy heavy hitting teams that are contending for his services. So we'll see you know. He's very impressed with the person we already know about the player. Because we've unfortunately seen it from afar up against ends this with other clubs so we'll see if he's interested in joining us but we've got a lot of choices. I heard from sources of the Yankees. Go worried about ten thirty eastern sometime last night that Garrett Cole was GonNa wind up signing with them as Jeff Passan's reported nine years three hundred and twenty four million dollars with an opt opt out after the fifth year in a full no trade clause to put that number in perspective obviously the biggest number ever. I starting pitcher but in the fall of two thousand eight they signed. CCC About the at that time to what was then a record. One hundred sixty one million dollar deal so basically Garrett Cole got double of what CC's about the tip curtain was on sportscenter. Scott van pelt talking about colds deal and granted. They gave him an enormous amount of money but they went a decade without going to the world series. They hadn't done that since the nineteen teens. They had to do something even if it meant giving him this much money. Here's Jeff passing on baseball tonight. This is by all senses of the imagination. A blockbuster doc buster deal and the New York Yankees get their man nine years three hundred twenty four million dollars for Garrett Cole. An average of thirty six million million dollars a year. The Yankee said that they were going to be aggressive and that proved to be absolutely true. Our friend Freddie Coleman the host of Freddie and Fitz Simons was talking talking about the signing. If you're willing to pay a guy he makes thirty six. Starts you willing to pay a one million dollars per start per start if you're willing to do that. And you believe he's worth worth it and he could be the difference between beating Houston and not beating Houston in this day and age. Yes I'm paying that guy that money period I know L. people going to say well. What about the next five or six years if you're the Yankees more than ever before in professional sports it's a second to secondly major league baseball? NFL NFL NBA NHL. If you believe you can go get it and you get a championship or two or three. Whatever happens in year four five and six you know give it you know award? From Yankees nation. A lot of excited tweets from gleyber torres from Aaron Judge. Reggie Jackson Mister. October tweeted out. What's happening Yanks get their man? Dan Use all caps at that point. And now have what it takes. We get to the world series next year. Two Thousand Twenty exclamation point see soon Garrett. Nice Job Jalan. When Hank Brian Cashman so Reggie Jackson very excited other moves yesterday the phillies signed? TD regardless to one year fourteen million dollar deal Chicago. White Sox SOx acquired rightfielder Nomar czar from the Texas Rangers in a deal for minor leaguer the former Oriole Arizona diamondback Adam Jones's agreed to a two year or deal with the team in Japan. The giant sign pitcher Kevin Gosper to a one year deal for nine million dollars to make good deal so if Kaufman has a turnaround. Let's he's next year he'd be worth something in trade and I'm sure that that's what the giants are thinking about him. And maybe about Zachos art who they acquired in a deal with with the angels of Anaheim. Let's get to it. Oh it's the revie tray with Carl rampage and I can remember when the Rabbie train was at the winter meetings last year and it felt like nothing was happening this year so different. Yeah I mean. There's a lot to talk about on baseball tonight. Yeah this year. We're on the ACELA train. Last year we were on a train would move. You know we were using the pardon. Pardon the pun coal and it just wouldn't function now we have Garrett Cole channeling the salad train this is a lot more interesting and it dampens the uh-huh about how the system is so broken that Nobody is going to get paid. And whether that that changes and only the top end guys get paid remains to be seen but this has been far more interesting and when you control the market like Scott Boras did you can make the statement that we're going to go from a slow burn to a fast and Furious Korea and in his case six hundred thirty three million dollars worth of contracts is pretty fast and furious. Yeah it's it's pretty amazing and and for the Yankees now. They addressed their one major. Need they got the best pitcher in the planet. Fronting rotation that has Luis Severino in Masahiro Tanaka and James Paxton accident other guys they an excellent bullpen with the rollers Chapman. At the back end and their offense in spite of a lot of injuries with their position players last year led the major leagues in runs. which is why I was thinking last night? Carl they may be the biggest prohibitive favorites. Baseball has seen since the late nineties. Yankees you buying. I'm vying that I you know I I did kind of go around this morning thinking okay. Who could compete with them? And I said you know maybe again to me what we learned about the nationals. Last it's year. Is that if you have those starting pitchers that can quiet and offense and you can compete with the other team starting pitchers you have a chance so to. That's that may be Cleveland. Corey Kluber comes back. They can. They can fight them. They can compete with them. They're they're not as talented as they are. But we've seen what really great pitching can do You know again. I feel for the as and the raise but Tampa has got a really good rotation. Oakland has a good rotation it's not fronted by Garrett Cole But there are some cy young potential there But it certainly reduces the field and it does elevate them to a prohibitive favorite written and I had You know some conversations with other execs on other teams and their comment was they better win it all and it wasn't as it's hard to imagine that they don't win at all you know. Oh boy. They're going to go into next season with a lot of pressure. No doubt about it and I do feel like in some ways. The the Yankees are such prohibitive favorites. that it almost takes pressure off the red sox to make the decisions that they feel like they should make to rebuild and restructure. So we you get to the next July and the Yankees have this monster. That's GonNa win one hundred five to one hundred ten games. Sure and the RED SOX rate to ten games behind him. Yeah Yeah I think fans would get it. You're not gonNA catch that team. I don't think there's any doubt and I think there's probably some effort to do before Before the season starts I've been you know When when you when you read and understand the collective bargaining tax the teams pay and if if you can get below a threshold? The financial advantages are Enormous and if this move Serves as You know a doorbell to the red sox that you cannot compete with Fab. You're not going to beat them absolutely make sense to do that now. That's why I felt a little. I feel a little worse for the rays who are whereas competitive you've ever been and the distance between at least it feels and again it's baseball. You know it. So that's the beautiful part of baseball. You only play the Yankees Nineteen Times If you're that good you can destroy the other competition and the red sox take a step back then. The race will have a bigger advantage in their series reas- against Boston. But I think the chasm between the Yankees and the raise the as Are the teams and the Indians are the teams that I look at not the red sox. I don't look at the Red Sox Prior to the coal deal given the given the language the Red Sox were using as the chief competition for for the Yankees in the American league. And I certainly Feel even more about that now than I did. Even yesterday that they're not competition for the Yankees takings that those other teams are and boy. It's like driving fifty five and you have a car that can go one hundred and the other cars can only go sixty. That's that's what just happened. And you know that there's going to be a lot of conversation about the Yankees money. I thought about this overnight to the Yankees will be paying more to players Garrett Cole and John Carlos Stanton and the Baltimore Orioles entire payroll you and I will be hearing a lot from raise fans Indians fans and fans of spirit market small-market Teams San. Boy It's not fair and my answer would be. Yeah you're right. You can't argue with that but that's you know. The horse went out the Barn Door one hundred twenty years ago. Oh with baseball's financial system. Yeah now there's the you cannot argue that You know and look depending on the Lens you look at this through Scott Boras. I was on baseball tonight with us. And he made the case again like a guy in his position would For the most part when when sports whatever whatever whatever sport it is you know Lakers Celtics in basketball patriots for a while here in football Montreal Canadian's you know having Goliath having the team that everybody can hate is generally makes the sport more interesting now. It sucks for the for the fans of the teams. That aren't rooting for the Goliath But I do think the difference in that is when the Goliath has the financial advantage that the Yankees do and that the dodgers do And the red sox and cubs angels I think that is the factor. That doesn't usually come into consideration with those other teams in other sports sports and look I think perhaps that Revenue Sharing and collective bargaining agreement and threshold tax may be damned into for the next two years because everyone understands that the financial parameters are going to change dramatically again. They have to you know we we now reward players. Here's who were far younger and should be getting paid Much different than they do waiting six years for free agency so there may be an I at least towards the idea. Yeah this is all GonNa Change. So let's let's spend now and certainly in the case of the white whale The guy that that is the difference maker. Isn't it funny makes you buster. How these things work out? If Patrick Corbin was somehow swayed the way that Garrett Cole was to join the Yankees we may not be having this conversation about Garrett Cole in fact I would imagine we wouldn't be. I would agree with you. I think you're right. It'd probably would've even for all the Yankees money that would squeeze them out about Garrett Cole. It's interesting but I just in talking with Yankee sources during this process you know. They sat down and met with him. Brian Cashman was there any pet. It was there and Aaron. Boone was there and there was a sense sense and the Yankees side that well of course the at the end of the process. There's going to be a lot of money. A record setting deal double what they gave the in the fall of two thousand eight and get their sense was for Garrett Cole. It wasn't about money it was about putting himself in a place where he'd have a chance to win and I know that sounds funny right after after he gets his massive contract. But I don't think that it wasn't necessarily just about the money for Garrett Cole no but I think you said two different things there. It wasn't just about the money which I agree with. But when you're talking about teams bidding for you at record prices. You're not going to go call the Kansas City royals say I'm going to join you. Guys you know for three million dollars a year so it always is about the money when the money is relatively close because no one no one in right mind can relate to what three hundred and twenty four million dollars is And it's very easy to understand that if he preferred to live on the west coast host. I'm sure Scott. Boris his wife Anyone else in his family or friends would say you could buy thirty houses on the West Coast and spend as much time as you. You want there except for the regular season all these things that you dream about you have the ability to do and if you want to win championships and you can be convinced by your idol. Andy Pettitte that putting those pinstripes on is something that Mark Tisch era and Tabatha recognized as marquee. There's something unique. He can different about playing at Yankee Stadium and wearing that uniform and travelling the way the Yankees do and just being Gangqi. Well then yeah sure money. Money may not be the talked about priority but it is a priority and then you have to consider winning a championship I to me. This was a dodgers lodgers. And the Yankees conversation with the Astros. On the periphery. Because I do believe you chase that ring And all things being equal. Oh you don't WanNA spend June July and August and September on a team that's the Yankees will for the most part always be in it. The dodgers given the way that they've done on things with Andrew Friedman will always be in it and there there aren't many other guarantees of teams Consistently that are going to be competitive additive. You know that was the Great Yankees statistic with Jeeter. How many meaningless games did he play over his career? You know free that's to me. What if you want? And given the money being what it is with these teams yes. Money absolutely is a priority. It is important but it's easy to put it on the backburner when you know you're going to get the match dollar from any one of the teams that are bidding on you to more Qu. Four Didi Gregorius signs. A one year deal with the Philadelphia phillies look. I think that everything they've done this winter signing Zack Wheeler that huge contract signing Deora glorious to play shortstop is a signal. But there's one more big move to come. Maybe making a deal for Chris. Brian at third base. They're GONNA get a third baseman. Who has some impact in the lineup? What'd you think of that signing I I love it? I love it from DVD's perspective you know. He came back early last year. He fought through. Tommy John Surgery and a quicker recovery. And this is Josh Donaldson deal. And I think that that ballpark. And that's city in that environment. DD IS GONNA shine. Unfortunately you lose you lose the memory. That Didi Gregorius came in and and made the transition from Derek. Jeter to Didi Gregorius. As seamless says any human being could make and here they are they get Garrett Cole and and he signs a one year fourteen billion dollar deal and I'm sure there's part of him that is looking at that franchise and saying God. Dang you know I would love to have played there with coal all and been the shortstop and been competing for world series the phillies certainly will allow you a chance to be very competitive in the National League. Another move may make them One of the favorites in that league but is it an amazing for all he did for that team and they don't own anything To be on you know to be on the outside looking back through the rear view mirror and you were part of that Organization for so long. You did such a great job replacing jeter and now you're in now. Hopefully you're saying to yourself if I can't wait to compete against them in the world series and hopefully as a big year in two thousand twenty on that one year contract rebuilds his value and gets a long term deal next next fall and lastly astros manager. Aj hinch met with reporters for the first time yesterday since of course all the news broke about the Astros and sign stealing ailing give listen to AJ hinch. Stealing part of it is all part of the investigation. So my comments on sign stealing my comments on investigations allegations even the principal people that we've talked about articles That have been written. It all has to wait for another day and I'm sorry I I want I want to answer it and not try to redirect you guys all the time but I. I simply can't do it. It is a detailed question though to detail to me. Wait you think. I'm GonNa Keep what I think to myself until I'm ready to come. And that and that of course not surprising that he answered that way because Major Julie Baseball is taking an evidence in at some point. Carl what I'm hearing is they're gonNA come down with a big time hammer. Aj hinch could feel the effect of that. What have you heard I I think this is this uncomfortable as AJ inches every bid for the guy that maybe more comfortable being Aj inch than any other person being themselves? This was a this is a very very very very dark cloud over the Astros. And Yeah I mean I. I'm hearing things that could lead to one year. Suspensions to certainly draft picks and fines. But I do think that we're GONNA see because you've got we were discussing this on the set of baseball tonight Relative to cheating. Where does this fit in is this? Is this an individual steroids thing where you know ultimately your third strike. You're banned from the game we know about signed stealing but electronically talk leaders that elevated to the most egregious of all do you vacate world series. Titles I think I think the penalties are going to be much harsher than than anyone has imagined them being half season I I think if it goes to Beltran and Cora they could also be suspended ended For a lengthy period of time even though there with new teams I I think that these penalties are going to be harsher than most people would imagine. Because I don't think we've ever seen this before and the way that baseball has punished. People you know especially during the cheating era of steroids. It wasn't as harsh as many people now. wished that it was. I think this is I think this is a time. We'll look at it. And and it will be as harsh harsher than anyone thought. It would be all right before we go. What time are the shows today? We're on from five to six. PM Eastern Time Espn Two then again at midnight eastern time and you know. Let's let's let's hope that the The coal in the train again pardoned upon work. One more day it will all right. Carl thanks you got it. Thank you covers baseball for the New York Post. He's out in San Diego. The winter meetings in Joel. I've always thought that the criticism of Hal Steinbrenner that he wasn't his father other was overstated that the Yankees have spent a lot of money in house. Time is owner. But this certainly seemed like the Sunny Garrett Cole like George Steinbrenner type of move from what I understand a couple of days ago. Was Hal Steinbrenner. Who basically was the one who pushed the Yankees offer from eight years to nine years? There's and essentially put it over the top. What have you heard? Yeah you know. You've been around the team a long time as I. Have you know what the narrative is going to become. It's he. He was cheap until about a certain time last night and now it's the Yankees by championships are just not a lot of people. If you're the Yankees accuse I do think the key. Endgame here to differentiate the offers at the end of the angels and the dodgers was the Yankees moving from eight to nine nine years and the Yankees were all the deferral possibilities from their offer and once they did that I think all things being equal coal whole wanted to try the Yankee thing I know The over a staying in southern California. It's where he was born and raised when he still lives Newport Newport beach were very strong for him but Cole I do think is A. Let's not fool around. He went there for three hundred twenty four million but I think once the money is on the table the idea of pretty certainly chasing championships every year of a contract which you could get with the Yankees and he could not be sure of with the angels was really attractive to him and this is where the supplementary stuff beyond the money gets important because I do think he grew up a Yankee Fan. He grew grew up a big fan of Andy. Pettitte Andy. Pettitte was part of the Yankee contingent that met him and from what I understand he s headed a ton of questions and pettit drilled. Home this idea of just how great it is to every year. You know you're going to pitch in October and gain the comfort appraising and pitching in that month. Yeah it feels like that Over the last decade or so that there have been a handful of players that HAL steinbrenner makes up his mind he wants. CCC Bath was certainly An example of that when he was a free agent I think mark to share was an example of that You know we saw a roll. This Chapman when when he became a free agent after winning the championship with the cubs. I think how was the driving force behind that one when the front office necessarily wasn't totally interested in the idea of paying closer that that kind of money but in this case it was the Anki saying you know what we know. It's more hundred million dollars. More than what. The pitch starting pitcher record was two days ago but this guy is the guy we want and a guy who can be a difference maker. You and I have known Brian Cashman a long time. He likes to take his one vacation in in January. There's been a lot of situations where it's either shortened or He had to postpone it entirely. Because the Yankee business overcomes it I can't remember number Yankee team where it's done like he's got out of backup catcher. He's got identify. A shortstop. Resigned Brett Gardner at some point to probably look for some bargains. But this team is pretty much ready to go for. Two Thousand Twenty is that you read on it. It's my read with everything you said. Perhaps one caveat. I think they'll stare into this a little bit longer and think about bringing in Batanes back because I think they like the players player so much I wonder what they think of the physical capacity of six foot eight guy coming back from an Achilles injury. they they. It wasn't a complete care like that Britain but they saw the first half season that they had Jack Britton that there is impact on pitching from this injury. But I do think they like the person and potential predominant so much that they'll think about it. I I think they do think gleyber Torres tourist can handle one hundred twenty one hundred thirty games at shortstop and then the question becomes do they just live with guys like Siro. Estrada and Tyler Wade as inexpensive backup little infielders or two. They go into this kind of vast pool. That got really much bigger with all the players who were not not qua- Not tendered Of like middle infielders especially second Baseman And they tried to do that. especially if there's a lefty bat or something but but I mean to your point buster and I'll go back to what I said earlier. The Yankees were going to win the Al East at about eight PM last night. There now definitely going to win the AL L.. least unless they have a plague of injuries in non-performance so they could be real judicious about what else they do this roster and your answer leads perfectly Wrigley into my last two quick questions for one We know the red sox fan this morning because I've hurts from from some back in New England. They're really upset. The Garrett Cole is going to be a Yankee I think if you he gave truth serums or the Red Sox front office they would acknowledge you know what this makes it easier for us to do the restructuring that we're going to be doing here over the next year what do you think that. How do you think this might affect the Red Sox I think they were doing it anyway. And I think you're right. It just made what was going to be difficult sales job a little a little more difficult. I still in my gut think that they ended up doing everything they can to trade as much of the contracts of David David Price and Nathan involve the as possible and move. Jackie Bradley as well and that Mookie Betts is July trade because there is is likely to get something similar to him in July as they are right now some teams that AB missed out on Cole suddenly feels like you know what we gotta make a big splash. Let's let's include X.. Prospect to get it done. I know we only have. That's for year but it is not back But we also know that they brought in kind bloom that was not some guesswork thing. They brought in a guy who's worked in an organization that does more with less Tampa Bay rays because they and makes talk decisions all the time because they recognized in the next few years. They're GONNA probably have to learn how to do more with less and certainly make some very very painful decisions and so I think those decisions were coming anyway but to your point. I think it's now a little bit easier to sell in their market to say. Look at that team. Look at this roster should we really like just chase you know. Run into the wind. Hope that we could win this race. Sixty seconds left what I'm hearing. Learn from teams is they feel like the cubs are building momentum to eventually at some point trade. Chris Brian Wilson Control. What have you heard about the cubs? Yeah I think thank both guys are in play buster If I would not be surprised if neither was on the team next year I think the key issue in the short term here. You're is that Anthony rent down and Josh Donaldson needs to come off the board once. They do Brian kind of like the next obvious. Not only third baseman. c'mon but that's bad because then the best at in the in the free agent market is probably Marcello Suda and I think we would probably think there's a decent gap between Marcello sooner and Kris Brian as a maybe a total player so he becomes a lot more attractive so I think the cubs are just in a little bit of factfinding four corners. Here until will some of the free agent bats move off the market and they're sitting there with one or two of the more attractive options that can still get because one thing we're learning in this offseason season buster after a couple of Jed offseason. There's a lot more teams that are trying to win Baseball Games in twenty twenty and so they're going to continue to be aggressive. Is this off season. Thank goodness for that boy. I hope the next Labor agreement we can get past the tanking. Joel thanks for doing great to talk with you all right. Thanks for having me. Yeah Technology Truth brought to you. By geico truth your cost Stereo will always sink to the most embarrassing on your phone. So the reservations. All righty great. What was that? Weird must've sake within hereby cars truth. It's so easy to switch and save on car insurance at GEIKO ECHO DOT com. Let's just wait. You like smooth jazz. Smooth Geico fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more the report of the mets broadcasts on us and why you see on the sidelines. All the time. And he's out in San Diego right now covering the winter meetings for us in Wyan Steve. Let's let's get right to the big mets news. I think the elephant room now has a name and that would be Steve Cohn With news coming out last week. That the wilpon families negotiating a sale. The mets to Steve. And I think the question everyone is asking is. How quickly will his money manifest in? What the mets Matt's do? What have you heard about that? Yeah Buster you know. That's a question I frankly can't answer right now. All I know and all we know is is what the the the match what Friend Jeff Wilpon have released that that Steve Cohen will be increasing investment and that both Red Jeff will stay on in their roles for the next five years The the question has obviously been asked as you said. It's the elephant in the room. It's been asked to Brodie van Wagon and multiple times out here and and again all I can tell you. Is that right now. In this particular off season winter meetings Brody has stated clearly that it's business as usual usual that from his point of view Nothing has changed so It's a it's a developing story. We're going to have to wait and see where as up but for right now Brody and in his front office as is operating the same way they were operating before the news according to roll he would not be able to actually impact moves moves until his ownership was officially approved by other owners. But I tell you having covered teams going through sales that that that process gets jumpstart start from time to time. So you're right. We'll have to wait and see how this plays out all right with that aside. What are the mets doing whether the priorities out at the winter meetings the big priority and it has to be the big priority for this is pitching both relief pitching and middle to back end? Starting the release pitching for this team last year is the number one reason why did not get to where they wanted to go. If you look across the board a lot of things broke right for this team. The starting pitching health also Pretty much one through five. These guys were making starts every five days. The emergence of countless young players on the position players side. I'd weather it was obviously Peter Lonzo his rookie of the year season. Jd Davis came really out of nowhere. From what the expectations were the projections. Where for him to become a really impressive potent bat in the middle of that lineup and Jeff McNeil backed up an incredible second half in twenty eighteen with a fantastic tastic year in two thousand nineteen so It was really the the relief pitching at Wendy S. Jerry's familiar That did this. Team came in If they would have had an average bullpen at times last season this team with a one ninety plus games and so They're gonNA focus in on on relievers but like I said because this team one through five last year and the starting rotation was relatively healthy and the odds of that happening. Think again are slim to none really You need to get starting pitching depth And so I think they're going to focus in on one if not more Proven Major League starters. You know we've heard the name. Rick Forsillo brought up As a guy that that they would target certainly some of the guys in the front office. Allard Baird Jared Banner History with him from Boston so So I think that's what you're going to see Mets have lost wheeler so they need to fill that spot as well well So so the focus is going to be on pitching although they do not seem like they're fully out on potentially acquiring a UH starting center fielder as well and installing Marseille is the name that that has arisen again as of yesterday. Yeah I think the interesting thing there is is that let's let's face it. That's going to be a competition among teams You know in the mets farm system may not be as good a position to to give up prospects to land him for Centerfield her field one way or the other it feels like Edwin Diaz is going to turn out to be a linchpin for the two thousand twenty minutes. I saw the comments from Carlos Beltran their new manager the other day. He seems relatively confident that they'll be able to figure it out he does and you're right. Buster Edworthy as no matter. How many relief pitchers the mets that's a choir Edwin D has has to be significantly better for the mets to be where they want to be at the end of the year and certainly he can be? I mean last year was such a strange year given how dominant Edwin the as it's been we know. How volatile relief pitching can be and generally is but? I don't think anybody saw that coming. Having the one thing that Carlos Beltran brings to the table here and that is unique to Carlos Beltran in terms of relating with Edwin D as not only only a shared background. They're both in Puerto Rico but But Carlos came over from a small market team to New York and he didn't struggle the away that Edwin. Ds Did in his first season as a player with the mets but he was not where he ultimately wanted to be and where he ultimately ended up being. And for the mets and the years that followed and Beltran understands that perspective and says that there are a lot of things that you didn't fully understand. Stand about New York that he he had to make adjustments to in that second full season so that he got announced He told me specifically that used Edwin D as as a personal project that he's going to take it personally If Edwin D as does not have success ask so You know he's all in trying to fix it. They send people down to Puerto Rico to make sure that Edwin from from jump. This off. Season has gotten you know the routine that they want him to get into And so you know. Last year we saw at times there was some chemical things he has is working on. The slider wasn't where it had been in the past at moments but now that fastball was still electric and that's slider was still their time so I I think the stuff is still there i. I would be surprised if the bounce back in some way from again the just you know horrific season that he had a year ago but is is d he has going to be what he was Seattle. I think that that's that's you have to be determined. Yeah I'm not around the team on a daily basis. The way that you are I'm watching from afar. And and as I watched them pitchy I sort of popped up in my head I what you just referenced. The question Kenny Handle New York because it certainly through my ears have seen a lot of players who didn't like Mike. It's sunny grey being the most recent example on the Yankee side. So because it you'd see for one or two batters yet electric stuff and then for for whatever reason they would just disappear and we give up the big hits. What have you heard about Carlos? Beltran Situation vis-a-vis this investigation the major league baseball is doing doing about the Astros. Signed stealing thing because I gotta believe that at some point for Major League baseball if they make a move to discipline Carlos Beltran. They're effectively going. That'd be taken on the whole union because at the time when you know he was my allegedly been involved in that stuff that was going he was a player for the Astros which feels like a separator from say in. Aj hinch or Alex. Cora yeah I would think so I I agree with you and I like listen. I haven't heard anything specific. I don't think anybody nobody really knows how the situation is going to end up and You know what what type of Bo is going to be put on it eventually. We had Carlos Beltran onset that last night we asked him the question. He was concerned at all about potentially being disciplined being suspended. We asked heavily Mula Nhs when we spoke with him. WHO's The the new bench coach? We spoke with him the other day about had he considered You know potentially being the manager on opening day and and both guys is. You know said that that it's not a some something they'd given any thought to You Know Beltran was was given the answer that that everybody is pretty much given given and it's really the only answer you can't give. Which is I'm GonNa let the process develop and play out and then we'll be able to from there but I I agree with you buster? It's a it's a tricky rickie situation to Specifically punish Beltran. You know for what happened as a player right now as a manager. I don't Oh I don't know how it's going to play out in the end and it really doesn't seem like the mets are too concerned about it But they they. Haven't you know expanded to much on on the possibilities there either all right. Well thanks for doing this. Thank you as always bustard Eric. Eric covers baseball. SPN She spent a lot of the two thousand nine thousand nine season with the Yankees and barley. Thanks for joining us. You had an interesting dinner experience. I know last night as the Garrett Cole News broke tell that story well I was sitting with a first of all. Thank you for having me. Buster was sitting with some fellas crimes For the San Francisco Chronicle and New York Newsday and the New York Post We were all sitting at dinner at a restaurant right next Seasons fifty two right Alexa. The hotel where the winter meetings are health they hired in San Diego and s walking in we ran into Quite a quite a group of Yankees Browse among them Speech Swindle S. We will know the nephew of Of Hal Steinbrenner and up how their brand cast mathare and GM excuse me and The special special assistant for Jimbo the Chicago cubs and we see them and they greet US perfectly normal. Hopefully this is about an hour before the news broke we sit down and just Encashment goes over to greet us because obviously there were a few people writers at this table and he smiles miles and I say Brian To dinner without any breaking news and he did not lie and he smiled and said enjoy your dinner and about thirty minutes later Exactly the cold news broke and I have to say and I was coming through this with a few colleagues. That's the way you do it Buster they knew they. Hey how did they were just sitting down celebrating and there wasn't even an overdose. Give away that anything. Lar- had been accomplished. This is a Not a super high end restaurant or Nice restaurant. Let's stick to the Yankees to be popping crystal. And they were not they. Were having a nice little family dinner of Yankees really close to some writers that we had no idea that three hundred and twenty four billion dollars. We're about to go down so so was it a case where we're you're sitting at the table and his Yankees Geico group and it is at another part of the restaurant and then the news breaks. Are you guys all watching Brian. CASHMAN and walk it over to them and asking him or what. Ah this moment I had to leave. ESPN set right. Because I was getting called out for everything that we have to do and at that moment where everything happened shortly shortly after some of my colleagues were told me that Joe Biden walked over to Brian Cashman and congratulated him and then at that point it was the way that a lot of journalists journalists. Were able to confirm that this was true. I mean the report is out there. You haven't even had a chance to reach out to your sources and also Shirley. Afterwards that the joke was he came to enjoy the Serb Aaron Boone. Join them so it's definitely a very clear that was this celebratory dinner. And that's exactly what they did. And it's just amazing They played it so cool. I mean buster that you will empire is back they did. It is such an old manor. It was cool and calculated and they did it right in front of us without US noticing. Thanks Hal Stein. Steinbrenner driving the boat on this one. He adding a ninth year to the offer. I think it was a couple of days ago which probably put it on atop I mentioned earlier in the show. I really feel like that. This makes the Yankees the greatest hibbitt favorite that. I've seen in baseball since the late Nineties Yankees because this team is going to be absolutely stacked what do you think one hundred percent. And it's one of those things that if you looked at weakness for the Yankees and even Hello Brian Cashman and buster. You've heard that line for manager Erin. Constantly that they were not eight player away but a play away from winning. We know exactly what player they wear away from winning. And we saw it happened in the playoffs. We Soho dominated code. And if we look at a projection of what the lineup Oh can be for the New York Yankees and their starting rotation at least from one to four it really is just a force to be reckon with its impressive what they can do and me. I mean it's just a complete powerhouse and you think about it and you're like how do they not conquer this alias. I mean they talked upon at one hundred three team. You know team that won one hundred and three games so it's just impressive. I completely agree with you. I joked with Joel Sherman that we know Brian cashman likes to take vacation in January a lot of times. That's been interrupted by Yankee News. This January he can load upon the sunscreen. He can rest easy be hanging on the sand for a week because it feels feels like all the stuff that he has to do now our little bits and pieces of things joe mentioned. Maybe you go and get a shortstop a backup Catcher pitcher maybe you Flynn Frazier for value now for some pitching depth but all the major stuff is done with his team absolutely. We were actually having a joke yesterday that we imagined in our own heads. Brian Cashman slaking his fingers. And then just kind of doing this thing going. I'm good. I'm dawn the wrist with you. Go to to work. Now I've He's he's obviously the Yankees last year. He put him in this position route. They were you know obviously very very strong contending team and and got had run over by a great team in the Houston Astros that now we see the one of the key piece of the Astros right goes over to the Yankees. And you're right. It's going to be very relaxing. Brian Cashman a two lovely children teddy and grace and I think Teddy Really Nice vacation coming and they're going to relax Man You're I'm not kidding about that barley. I appreciate your time thanks for doing this. Thanks for having me Bunch of Leisure tweets. Okay foster some bleacher tweets lots of commentary on twitter about this signing so our first tweets comes from private schools sweat at school sweat. If the angels angels were willing to get close to three hundred million on coal shouldn't they redirect and go after both mass and Bumgarner and review now. Yeah I think school is sweat. Glad I think they're gonNA wind up with review and my guest is the Madison. Bumgarner has a chance to wind up. Wave The Los Angeles dodgers. I heard is that the dodgers actually were second in the bidding for Garrett Cole and I think Ken Rosenthal reported last night that after the dodgers found out they missed out on coal. They immediately pivoted to To bumgarner so we'll see where that goes I. AM So grateful at the angels. Did Not get care. Call next one here from Kenny Kenny city. Especially now with Adam Jones. It seems like there's an uptick in major league players urged by passing the MLB and going to Asia. Any idea why I don't know about an uptick but yeah when Adam Jones goes there it gets your attention. I think it's at least potentially about money. We've seen how veteran free agents in their thirties. In recent years haven't done as well and in terms of dollars they get but According to the reports Adam Jones is gonNA get eight million dollars over two years. He may not have gotten that in free agency here and Major League Baseball. Here's Brennan Severo at 'EM WC bear. Hey Buster is there a chance that the oil do anything at the winter meetings. Yeah they could do something look. They've sent word out from what I've heard from agents that they're basically open for tryouts. They're they're just GONNA. I'm sure they're going to try to bring in some cheap veterans Give some playing time and hope that they can flip them for value during during the two thousand twenty season. My God think about this troy last year the Yankees took eighteen of nineteen from Baltimore. The Orioles might actually get worse. Who saw they've already traded away a couple of veterans they may do some of that more and the Yankees have added Garrett? Cole I mean those Games could be cover is bad. Oh my gosh. That's going to be insane. It just the thing about all this money you know. There's this narrative that kids don't play baseball more and I'm here to say like parents advisor kids to play bass look at the money. These guys are making. This is so much more than your quarterbacks or are making than every other athletes and making push your kids play Baseball Ryan Norton at Rocket Paul following up on a conversation. We had with Hembo yesterday. How about these days for some outside the box hall of famers and their chances for enshrinement we talked about Scott Boras but how about Bill James Dr James Andrews Dave Dunkin's zone one hundred percent? Zony absolutely Dave Duncan Liam Zone to the great pitching coach of all time. I I I wrote mccollum about ten years ago saying that they should like do separate presentation for coaches. Absolutely these are people who have had again like Marvin Miller have had a huge impact on the sport Fort James The way teams are front offices. Run now that he's at the root of that James Andrews the great work he's done so I would agree with all that. Thank you for the tweets this morning. Cuban coming every day Hashtag bleach tweets one last thing. We got great news on Tuesday. That late Boston Globe writer. Nick Cafardo won the J G Taylor spink award. That's Given every year to a writer and of course Nick Fargo passed away last spring during spring training. He'll be honored posthumously. July during the hall of Fame Weekend Cooperstown New York. And he's son. Ben is a great and chairs colleague of ours here at ESPN. And you know so happy for Ben and his family. I knew nick. What a great guy? It's so cool that he's getting this honor coming up. That's it for today. My thanks is to Marley to Joel. Two Carl Gibson detroi- have a great day. Everybody thanks for listening so try. I'm thinking that if there's big news than maybe we'll have another podcast on Thursday or Friday. We'll just have to wait and see on that If not then I'm thinking like December twenty third two days before Christmas that worked for you potentially essentially that works for me so just a heads up buster.

We're mason tonight moving to a later timeslot on tuesday three six thirty so fasttrack from now on after today we'll be at five. We will not be too all right and it's brought brought to you by dr grant stevens. Get your body back on track fast. Get rid of those unwanted inches freeze the fat with dr grant and his team at marina plastic surgery surgery freeze the fat dot com okay bryant last night. My alma mater u._c._l._a. Looked awful playing at cincinnati and lost lost heads. U._s._c. wins tomorrow night tales. They get upset by fresno state. Call it in the air. I will say heads they win but i don't think they'll cover currents. They're going to win all right there. It is brian. Your first coin flip their courtesy. Now cow this old hat for curtis chariot to go first or you can defer i today because i i feel like a wide selection. Very interesting question starts with this. <hes> this morning i <hes> i like to get up and the baby feeding the baby and i unload the dishwasher washer and then put the dishes that are in the sink in trying to help out around the house and whatever i had the experience where in filling it it was was like tetris. Everything fit perfectly okay got everything in it was a one hundred percent to capacity everything out of sync. Everything arranged perfectly never happens to two things. I gotta leave sing. It was the highest p. e. r. dishwasher loading i've ever we're had this sort of thing. Gets me irrationally excited when i get a really good. I'm actually with you. Dishwasher thing like it makes my my days been great since then. I'll ask you this question. What is this equivalent for. You something. That shouldn't get you this irrationally happy or excited but does most of my friends know this about me. I am a for lack of a better term a laundry czar in other words. If the be the the laundry basket is we have we have a dual basket where you put the lights on the left side and the colors on the right if either one of those baskets more than seventy seventy five percent full. I'm on it i will i do and my wife can't keep a she'll go. Oh my god you did more laundry three and she's so bad that i won't fold hers but i will put hers in its own basket so she knows she has a basket of clean laundry over the right so as you know a couple of weeks ago i went to tahoe and we went with three other couples so there were eight adults and then my son jack was around there too so we're nine people total and there was a laundry basket for for everybody i think and so we get filled every day because there were so many peter and every day i would do it and after a couple of days everybody went it it dewey of a made the laundry is done. No i'm lotteries. Are i cannot stand in overflowing lawn. Task it. You know who this puts you in common with. There's a very legendary guitar player that your love of laundry bonds you with no eric clapton really. I was once at the laundromat. There's ever on third and sweetser. There's a coin op laundromat that i used to go to before i lived in a place that had its own laundry and i was there one day <music> i'm looking over and there's this short grey haired guy with the little round glasses who looks exactly like eric clapton except it's not eric clapton because why eric clapton at the coin op laundromat on third sweetser but finally so you've drive around and look at them and then i see him leave for a little while a blue porsche k comes back and i look at them. I'm like yet ask them. Are you excuse me are you eric clapton. He says yes and i say i just watch a huge fan. I love your work. I have to ask you what are you doing here. I love to do laundry. When i'm on the road it. He finds he calming a makes me happy i just i like to do it and so i do my own laundry when i'm out on the road all right so this is potentially embarrassing for me in the last i've been traveling with the lakers for twenty two years so in the last five or six years i've realized i'm all about efficiency but packing efficiency that rather than if it's more than a three game trip rather than pack four or five games for them on the road for for eight to ten days pack for half that and then find a laundromat and some of these have been literally like there's one in orlando although where the night i was there they were feeding the homeless and i made a big healthy donation to the homeless and was worried. Am i got some free food and there were there and after i made my donation all the baskets were going and this this super nice lady came up to me and ghost goza. I'm doing laundry over here with my daughter. Here here will double up and you can have this machine and i'm like wait. I'm happy to wait and she was no no take this machine vice and <hes> so i know where the laundromats are and every n._b._a. City here's a new thing if you travel for living google when you get to the new city this paid off peak for me in philadelphia last year just google philadelphia laundry service. This thing comes up. This was unbelievable. The sin comes up. I was at the end of like we're we're on the road for thirteen days and i'm like eight days in and i got nothing like everything i own needs to be washed. I get to the hotel they they don't offer laundry service on sunday. I'm like okay. I gotta find a laundromat but just for kicks google philadelphia laundry service find this girl. That's a student at temple. She comes to the hotel picks up my bag and laundry at ten in the morning and she says i'll have it back clean by three and she brings it back right rated three clean and i said oh this is great. What do i owe you. She says six dollars kin no where to go first first of all you're not charging enough and i said here's twenty-five keep the change and she was elated and now whenever i go fix she goes shoes. I only did two who loads she goes. I have really big washers and dryers came to look laundromat. I only did two loads but that's that's the answer bryant. I'm obsessed with laundry. It's pretty pathetic. You're avenue track to k- s._p._n. Los angeles okay wing. W i n g the drone delivery company of google's parent alphabet alphabet announced tuesday that it's delivering food and other items within minutes to a limited number of homes in the suburbs of canberra canberra australia by drone interest in drone delivery exploded in december of two thousand thirteen when amazon's jeff bezos said drone delivery was likely four or five years into the future and mine brian that was six years ago he said four or five years this is going to be here but amazon design is only announced a small trial in cambridge england where it is tested drones if amazon offered drone own delivery to your house today. Would you approve it. I think i would i mean what are they bringing me. Small zone prime do all right. What what's the last thing you ordered. I it was my wife. I think birthday present for we're going to party this weekend. Okay for woods woods. Whatever that president was thrown deliver it by dry. I am not anti robot. I do think though in the back of our minds we all have to keep one word in mind skynet skynet the only the greg greg. You've heard my position on this before you are yes hell. I robot hell no do i want a drone flying over and dropping something i it would have been flies in an open window and destroys me kills my entire family. Hell no undrawn. Improving drone mason would be all ovations very pro robot. I am deeply terrified of the robot apocalypse it's going to happen. It's going to happen within the the day like it could happen any time. I get something delivered to me by amazon prime minute drone. It's not gonna keep that from happening. No it's not but i might as well take advantage of the convenience always last. I would get whacked in the head by the drone. Come out we're doing. That's just the drone registering. Its opinion of your work. Would the drone kill my dog. I know it. I know your family that is happening. Yeah of course now go after fasttrack. I got that story about about that sex bio yeah yeah no no drone hell no. I'm not gonna check speaking of sex john excellent we we all know that sports radio sometimes veer into it's the best transition greg a conveyor into stupidity often so i was you're on on the twitter and i saw somebody put out this question on ninety seven point one the beastly fan of whatever you know one of these sorts of stations and the question when was this if you had to choose between unlimited sack with your wife or girlfriend or significant other about what about both for for a month take what about both bump up <hes> or but it meant you couldn't watch snap of college football. We'll just say football generally for a month or you could watch as much football as you wanted but no sex for that month okay. Would you choose critical question to this dilemma. Which month is september october november. A september upcoming college football gimme the sex the pre the pre preseason games that the beat first floor over so you're actually october. It's harder but give me the sex november now. You know it's gotten complicated. They're big games neck and i watch laker games. You're the of course. I mean absolutely it's just as a the the question was about football november. Yes still no playoffs. Give me the senators. I'm taking sex on every single month mri n._f._l. Playoff shores you're absolutely unlimited sex with your wife or girlfriend or significant other of course one hour. Wait a minute you all. Three of us are in committed relationships. Technically we have unlimited sex now. How well i mean nobody in a committed relationship. I mean exactly surrealists. I mean technically yes exactly so realistically even and if you're on a sex let's get more but if you have to consider this then i think you re october november the vendor and december gimme the sex january february. We're missing the super bowl right. Well see that's the thing so you know okay so here's the thing if i keep it all throughout throughout september october november december january and then miss a short month in december or february for the super bowl. I may do that. I just feel may miss that one. I know you guys aren't giving up january. I i don't i am banquet. Easy ran some super bowl run raiders going to the super the raiders super bowl wait there for like olive new year's day bowl games and the national championship games in an effort for january. That's my motto. I just feel like your priorities. Although i guess lisa looks forward to december she would be the reverse her favorite evert month no she would be the reverse and she doesn't even watch football. She gave me the football. That'd be easier all right. This football brian this saturday florida atlantic university this tamar f._a. Coach by lane kiffin is traveling to columbus to take out ohio straight. The buckeyes are twenty seven and a half point favorite when he was asked this week what the benefits are playing a team like ohio state date. Kiffin answered with one word money. He's being honest. Florida atlantic is being paid one point four million for taking this game that essentially pays for kiffin entire twenty one thousand nine hundred salary but pretend you're a coach at a small school rule like f._a._u. These decisions are being made above you. They're being made by the athletic directors and the president's. Would you wanna take a game like this or would you scheduled scheduled down to bulk up your record now. I think you're you gotta take at least a couple of these for for multiple reasons. There's the money but also there's the opportunity of you play ohio state you. You might win. There's just a chance that you might be in this game in the fourth quarter and they cut into you on e._s._p._n. F._a. us right there and it's a recruiting opportunity and you're just you're on t._v. You hit the nail on the head state michigan right. You're there is nothing to lose. If you lose by twenty seven seven and a half then everybody expected it if you even remain competitive and almost moves by ten you put your school in the map now the only thing i feel a little bit about is your kind of for lack of better term serving your kids up to the wolves. They're you're serving them up to get hit by bigger stronger longer faster players but you can somewhat prepare for that. You can run the air raid. You can run trick plays. You can do whatever i would take. I'm not guy would take the game imagine imagine if they do really well and they go undefeated throughout and they beat. All these teams teams the beginning. If you're a movie you become a movie at the end of that season right. There used to be a school school in a world. <hes> there is a school called troy state. Yes take these games all the time and every once in a while they would they would rise up and play really well and people's the recruiting routing it better tristate all right more fasttrack in two minutes e._s._p._n. L._a. mason in ireland show right in the middle of this will be the last time we do fasttrack at two o'clock mason. I are moving or changing time slot starting tuesday. We're going to be up from three to six thirty and fast track will be on at five right now going into the time capsule right now. We're in the middle of it and brian. It's two fouls chad new all right so this was an interesting using story that came on. I believe earlier this week. On astronaut named ann mclean was reported by the new york times has biz being accused of hacking hacking the bank account of her estranged wife summer worden apparently summer <hes> somebody she discovered that somebody had acted so women married to a woman yes sort of incidentally the story <hes> she summer word and discover that somebody accessed her bank account while maclean was on board the international space station and the computer network that that person used was registered to nasa and she's filed a complaint with the f._t._c. accusing the clan of identity theft and improper access us to private financial records my question to you john this is sort of an ordinary crime of of hacking or improperly properly getting into somebody's account or wherever on a scale of one to ten. How much cooler does it become because it's space crime well it. It's not needing to the victim. It's not any cooler arrest arrest of us. I always finished crime. I always felt a little weird. I used to this was like before. The internet in hacking was a really big deal. This is right when the internet was born like mid to late nineties. I used to date this girl that worked for a company called lexis nexis assists and like television stations would hire her company lexis nexis because if you became like a suspect spector you became a public figure you could type brian cashman inskeep into lexis nexis and it would literally pull out everything about you like every private record a public record. I don't know how they did it so anytime. He's ever curious about anybody i was. I was sleeping over at this girl's house so she had lexis-nexis under computer now now. It's just basically a google right but back then i would type it in and go wow. That guy has a house worth ten million dollars. That's unbelievable so so i think this is who had access to the international space station computer. This is concerned. There's only so many people that can do from space is kind of like she's all jason lexis nexis. They're just taking advantage of their station. No i think greg. They should let her go. Joe smith crime space. Crime is a crime that you fought by john. I i don't i don't support like murder but space murder in this space etc do not support space a cooler in space. It's more fun to read because it's space great space like robbery. You shouldn't do that but this this whole syringe remember the crime in the movie office space. They were literally stealing a penny heyns bank account of fig if they did that from spain everybody solar stew dip penny so no one's really going to care and jennifer aniston goes so you're basically thieves. You're stealing money out of a makeup. No we're stealing penny's right stealing -spense crime miss still crowd cooler space so you can get yourself into space. One's going to lose her job and do time time for committing crimes should be like the purge whatever you want. You could do whatever you want there. You're out on the ocean. If you get to a certain area your international waters what jerry nar national space you can commit the crime. Yes various various things like gambling game elvis miles offshore near national water so you can play poker. Nobody space and nuts you can't. I cannot steal your wallet. If we're on a boat absolutely can you two are more on no space. Crime is still cry but it's cooler. It's absurd therefore iga brian in vegas. What happens in space stays in spill jokes. Who who comes down you have to be. I can't stick me no offer the space. I'm up here. Yeah you're down there. No atmosphere and come the nasa police had like to see he try children <hes> nine. Is this quiz nine seven and ten months tomorrow. Okay you probably the nine and seven year old probably graduated from it but you can still play this trick on the ten months old. When she gets older i used to convince my son when he was around the age of three or four if he did not be quiet and go to sleep that the noise police that's right coming. We're coming to the house to take them away and one time. I like i <unk>. I just wouldn't stay quite boba pounded on the door for outside and i went jack. The noise police are here. He goes dead. I'll be quite worked worked. Try it use it noise. Police actually work okay. It's to me space. Police better space place don't exist the pac twelve announced last month. It had tabled an idea of early kickoff times at least for this year so every game's still still gonna start at two in the morning decided okay but according to john or and from the sports business journal fox sports is going to push for in nine. I'm a m pacific kickoff time next year for some huge games. Why shington hosts nine a._m. Pacific ooh washington hosts michigan in week. One in twenty twenty oregon hosts ohio state in week two so one of these games is in seattle. The other is in eugene on pacific time or and expects fox to push for one of those match up to be the pac twelve. I nine a._m. Local time kickoff now jeff schwartz is a former n._f._l. Linemen i think he went to oregon and when he saw this he tweeted needed no. You can't have these marquee pac twelve games at nine a._m. Pacific especially in those stadiums those stadiums are loud in wild at nine a._m. I am they'll be asleep brian. What do you think about a nine a._m. Kickoff for a key college football game. I think the pac twelve remains the dumbest conference anywhere it's like is there no happy medium between kicking off your games at three in the morning like they seem to do now and kicking them off at nine in in the morning so you can get him on at that'd be noon eastern with a three pm kick-off eastern lake. Let's there's already s._e._c. games in that window or something something alabama's playing l._s._u. In that window there nine you can't because you're going to get rush nine a._m. You're going to completely disagree fox's trying to take advantage of where they can get the most. I'd say fox wants to do it. I don't know why the move off in oregon at nine a._m. People would show up to tailgate at six a._m. But they lose people apologist. We go to work at this country name. I get my son to school every day at seven a._m. Sure would adjust no. It's a once a week thing they digest whenever time the games there's n._b._a. Finals game in l._a. That started six. It's the busiest time in the freeways people showed up people would adjust. I'm all for this. The only the thing that i have a problem with this is that when teams like in the pac twelve go to the east coast and they have to play at twelve o'clock start time. The thought is all their starting at nine a._m. Pacific time so they're not fully really ready. They're not on the right time schedule. They have to do it still here. You're still starting at nine a._m. I won't play at four p._m. Yesterday and they were asleep so he doesn't. It doesn't matter all right. That's good ones. Let's do the game because we we'd be remiss. If we didn't play a game in the final <hes> two o'clock fasttrack ever okay so we'll do this and what i have is. I was up last night with the baby because she wouldn't sleep and i was watching one of those time.

Sterling affairs podcast greg commercial free right yep commercial-free. There might be a promo or something in there but it's commercial free okay so that's coming up e._s._p._n. L._a. all right mason in ireland show. I'm john ireland. Brian came in its keys information. We've got roy firestone coming up in twenty minutes. We'll talk to roy catch up with him and then it at three thirty. Ramona's entire sterling affairs podcast runs on e._s._p._n. L._a. and the reason one of the reasons we're doing that. We have a big lineup change. Mason and i are moving. We are going to three to six thirty pm. Starting tuesday sodano is going to be on after us and in the twelve to three slot. This slot is going to be will cain and from bristol so i tweet it out details on it. If you want to go to my twitter twitter at l. a. ireland but so <hes> one of the things we are gonna do is today because there's no synonymous show sodano actually filled in earlier today <hes> on will show so yeah we are going to air in its entirety the sterling affairs which ramon produce. It's a podcast that i listen to ramona senate to me on a sunday two o'clock. I was done by three a._m. The next day and remote it has been incredibly well received but now a whole bunch of people are going to hear it the gym get a chance to hear before. Let me ask now that. It's been out for a couple of weeks. What have you received the biggest response to in the podcast interesting <hes>. I actually think there are two things <hes> number one. I think that <hes> people are shocked at the locker room stories <hes> that seems to be like a resounding level of like oh my god i can't believe donald sterling would go in the locker rooms and sorta ogle players and his his friends watching and you know that old policies <hes> clips at the at the end of one of the episodes that was <hes> that that resonates with people pretty strongly <hes> <hes> and i think it was stuff that people didn't know and then i actually think that jerry bus stop. I think that a lot of people didn't realize the history of donald and jerry <hes> and how how how how those guys were linked to the by the way it's spoiler but it's episode one. That's in the very first or is it in to ramon. I can't remember it's in one one isn't it all of that too is about is about donald and jerry <hes> the opposite of showtime right and and to to put a ribbon around basically and ramon explains in detail but donald sterling wanted to be jerry buss he saw the success that jerry buss was having ping and what makes that interesting is that when jerry buss bought the lakers and ramona you break this down in the podcast. I don't want to spoil it completely but one of the people he weaned on to get the capital to buy the lakers from jack. Kent cooke was donald sterling and how he does it is pretty fascinating so will encourage people to stay tuned for that you know for me. One of the most fascinating things is the amount of cooperation and the level of detail. You got from shelly sterling yeah. I thought that she makes this thing. I don't know if you can do do this project without her. Do you think you could have i mean we could've but it's not the same project right because he she is the most cheaper reason i was so interested because she such an interesting character right like this woman who kind of you know nobody really paid much attention to about like what she about about for all these years fifty six year marriage at that point she's she's known as shelly she's nice grandmotherly you know figures sitting next to him him and i think most of the players kind of feel sorry for her because they sort of felt like you know donald brought his with the women who would have affairs with around and <hes> just rub it in shelley's phase and the definitely gonna was up her face and so there's a part of there's a part of the story that that you know there's a there's a woman who gets her revenge right shelly obviously gets revenge on eh but then there's the the equally tricky subject of while she was married to the guy and he wasn't part of you know his business and they they built that real estate business together and all this stuff with housing discrimination kind of you know she's complicit in a lot of the business practices they have that are that are that that are that were wrong and they settled the lawsuit the department of justice for housing skirmish should <hes> and so she's not a victim here. She's she's complicit in some of these behaviors <hes> but in this moment where she she we probably hollywood philby in court if it doesn't sell the team out from under donald like getting him declared mentally incapaci- yeah you do agree lou right and you do a great job of explaining how they pulled that off <hes> which is is really good ramona. One of the things that comes out in the story is sort of the way the n._b._a. Dealt with this and adam silver and the racism and all this kind of stuff and in the case of donald sterling's so over new had tapes and you had him talking about magic johnson and aides in hanging out with black people and all this just horrific stuff what would have happened if donald sterling kind of continued to be himself but there never were tapes. What do you think would you still be the owner of the clippers. I think you would be <hes> and i'll tell you this <hes> and this is stuff that i've kind of learned learned since the podcast comes out so what happens is that you report during the podcast and people tell you quite a lot but then once it comes out then everybody comes out of the woodwork and says well let me tell you this story right the like this kind of like hey. I'm looking for your bent the podcast right. There's there's a lot more that i've i've sort of learned since and and one of the things that i i <hes> have heard pretty strongly. Was you know right now. It seems so obvious that when those tapes come out adam silver was gonna ban him for life right like how how could you say those things and get away with it. Oh <hes> but i think that that took even more courage than we would realize. I think a lot of the owners when this came came out. <hes> didn't really want to deal with it. A lot of the owners were sort of like what's the new standard here like you know being recorded by your mistress and a secret way i say bad things like is that the new standard is that i think behind the scenes there was a lot of pushback from owners about even having to make what would have been a vote of you know they would have to get get three quarters majority of the owners vote him out. I think they would have voted him out but there is there was a lot more concern behind the scenes about the slippery slope of this and you know you can see his later like you know. The owner of the atlanta hawks. This is just like a year or two later that that stuff comes out with danny ferry tapes. You know that that that this is a precursor to that so you there was a slippery slope here <hes> but <hes> i think i think obviously adam. Silver did the right thing sort of executive order that he does that says i'm banning for life and you know if you have a problem with that your own and you have a problem with that. I dare you to come out and say that now and pick up for the racist right i mean he just kind of decided to do it and and interpreted corporate very broadly the best interest of the league policy that they had and now it's like we can't imagine a league in which he doesn't do that and with the players don't you speak up and say how horrible it is but but there was a lot behind the scenes that this was not just a cut and dry decision. I think there's a lotta people <hes> advocating for for for less for less decisive yeah of course of action all right so if you're driving around in a you're gonna get to hear it. The sterling affairs a podcast produced in five parts by ramona. This is pretty cool. They're going to air all all sides parts commercial-free their my dad's there might be a couple of promos in there but it's going to air basically start to finish starting at three thirty so you're about to become i didn't even you know that was happening and i was like you guys with myself and they're going to do it again monday. They're going to do a monday during the day on labor day so you're gonna get week filling enough that weekend of shelbourne have your agent cut a better deal next time you know you should be getting paid for all this residual podcast. There's there's a lot of people who don't know how to download the podcast like you realize you know like my aunts and uncles. They're like what is this cast. What is that what extinction is. You're darn yeah. I know exactly what you're talking about. I well. We're looking forward to hearing the main congratulations. I'm glad everybody is going to get to check it out. Yeah thank you. I appreciate all right talk later. There's ramona and when we come back the latest tyler skaggs e._s._p._n. L._a. Mason and ireland show our buddy roy fire fire since going to be up in about ten minutes. He's got a new book out roy's in those podcasts the sterling affairs talking catch up with roy in about ten minutes <hes> now if you've joined slate a new twist in the tyler skaggs story of you don't know this story skaggs was a pitcher for the angels. He passed away in his hotel room. On july first. There was no cause of death given at that time. It absolutely devastated the angels. This was a pitcher in the prime of his career. <hes> who turned up dead in his towel room it brian i actually think it wrecked their season understandably blay but they were never able to recover from a cancelled a game that night <hes> they they had a press conference next day in these grown men tears unable to explain what this guy meant to the team when they had their first home game after that road trip his first game <hes> the angels i came back in angel stadium they threw a combined no no hitter and they all wore skaggs jersey number forty five jerseys and then laid them gently on the mound is a tribute to him and it was really touching today. The autopsy report came out the cause of death is listed as a mixture of alcohol alcohol fenton all aw an acci- code on intoxication with terminal aspiration in other words he was taking opioids. He vomited and choked on it and what is disturbing for lack of a better word about today's news. Is that tyler's. Hi lers family issued a long statement. The start of the statement goes into it says we are heartbroken to learn that the passing of our beloved tyler was was the result of a combination of dangerous drugs alcohol. They talk about what a great guy was and then towards the end of the statement it says this we are grateful for the work of the detectives in the south lake police department and their ongoing investigation into the circumstances surrounding tyler's death. We were shocked to learn that it may involve an employee of the los angeles angels we will not rest until until we learn the truth about how tyler came into possession of these narcotics including who supplied them to that end we have hired attorney rusty hardin to to assist us rusty. Hardin is the number one criminal defense attorney in the state of texas. You hire rusty hardin when you i think you have a case and you want to get to the bottom of something and what they allege here. Brian is that there is someone else who works for the angels. They may have given tyler said how involved in this process he's opioids and so we were wondering brian and i were wondering will the angels comment on this and now they have. They just released this statement. Quote tyler was and always will be a beloved member of the the angels family and we are deeply saddened to learn what caused this tragic death. Angels baseball has provided our full cooperation and assistance to the south lake police as they conduct their investigation. That's the end of the statement. It really doesn't say much but right as i said earlier in the show brian they have to get to the bottom of this if they have someone working for them who supplied opioids to one of their players and the player die or even the new even knew what what skaggs might the implications of that could cripple a franchise permanently and they need to and i would imagine every tv news camera in this market is underway to anaheim where they play the red sox tonight at seven o'clock. Mike trout is coming back from a layoff in which he was injured appeared but that is no longer relevant story. All the questions are going to be about tighter skaggs in this statement from his family alleging that someone someone else who works for the angels may have been involved in his death and we'll obviously keep you posted about this when we come back. We'll move on roy. Firestone will join us mason in ireland brand cabinet skiing for macy's e._s._p._n. L._a.

Deivis Debut, Happs Statement, Yankees Win Wild Mets Series

"We are breaking down all aspects of Yankee Baseball. This is the Bronx. Pinstripe. Show with your host age Rotundi and Scott Ryan let's go. What's up everyone welcome to the Bronx Pinstripe show episode four, hundred seventy three brought to today by. Jordache. NFL. Sunday ticket and bet online. Scott was almost disastrous weekend. Really really dog shit bad. So close to be that bad of a weekend for the Yankees, but they somehow managed somehow managed to win three out of five. I don't know the mets are that bad. The mets are bad enough that they gave the Yankees game in the in the doubleheader on Sunday and they couldn't hit either. So neither team can hit until. You know until like weird times and then and then they completely completely give the game away on Sunday. So you know we're the first game. We should be very thankful that that happened the Yankees gave away couple games too. So I guess it was. It was do you believe in do but you know think about it this way you could honestly say either team could have won all five globally. Like the mets probably feel like we should have won all five and the Yankees feel like we should have won all five. That's how that's how the game sort of bore out especially like so many lead changes late in the games sloppy play. bullpens blowing it. Extra in two extra inning and the doubleheaders even though it was only aiden especially, we got our taste of ex is finally with a runner on second twice when it comes, it comes in bunches look the Going into Sunday. When you see the way that the weekend had gone looks thankfully my j. hat on Saturday saved the bullpen a little bit and got, but it didn't get the. Wrong. I got absolutely. You don't get a win by going seven third Shutout Ball I. mean that's that is the exact reason why the win is stupid stat because Jay happ pitched the best game by Yankee starter all year. That's not hyperbole that's fact and he's just got nothing to show. There was definitely not the best game by a Yankee starter. Oh it was. It was the longest with the most notable with no runs. Doesn't mean that does not mean it was the best outing not mean that was the best out. It was a good outing. Don't get me wrong. It was gets a horrible team against a moment that I'm not gonNA take anything away from it. Trust me I'm not a guy who's taking anything away from hat. I. Was in love with the performance I was in love that he stayed out there should've stayed out there through the through the lens of letting him, finish it and bring instead of bringing in frigging homerun happy out of iino to walk in for three seconds and tie the game. Thanks. Thanks for that. Rob Me of my second win on the road to seven. I still have an opportunity but that was a big. One but yet he saved the game and the weekend really because if he goes four innings and give five runs nother dip back into the bullpen again with nobody there. So the fact that happened was was a was a good thing because you walk into Sunday with Michael. King and then you know David Garcia who was eventually they announced him but as the the other star people are looking for. Collect Schmidt We told you not happening forty man thing. Not. Now. At least their hand has not been forced yet to that point David Garcia is ready to go and look freaking. Awesome. But I tell you what Michael King looked really go to. He had a really. Unlucky I think fourth inning the fourth inning when. There was like duck three duck duck, and then all of a sudden. A So. You know he still look good and and. I was I was happy to see that he came out there but good good good pitching from the young guys on Sunday for sure team. Needed it badly. Yeah that's a good point that saying J. really salvage the weekend for them. When when when Boone is leading Jay got there for the seventh inning I was like. Ironic that he didn't let Tanakh ago. He didn't let Montgomery go and he's going to let Jay go and I think that was partially just circumstance like he's bullpen is fried and the bullpen also just blew two games on Friday blue a game on Wednesday so like hey, screw it. Let's go caution to the wind but then he brings him back out there to start the eighth inning and I'm Ann Arbor mmediately thinking of the gift from Seinfeld. Where were Costanza is taking his? Susan's parents remember to the Hamptons because like you want to get nuts. Let's get what was happening is they were giving him every opportunity to blow the game. And I'm sitting here like you've gotta be kidding me this say. Money. FREAKING runs for this guy so that we can notch another win here. Let's go boys we're on we're on a path here we have a journey to seven wins and boone was trying to screw it up although the offense really the end of the day or the ones that screwed up because they couldn't do anything against the horrible mets pitching. I mean part part of the reason it is you look at usually seven six or seven through nine, and it's Kratz, Tyler Wade, Astrada, a medicine, not the full lineup so I get it but at the same time, how many freaking baserunners are they going to have on base and then just never get a damn hit to put the game away they had opportunity after opportunity with two runners on or bases loaded two ice games this weekend, and they could just never get the hit I mean Gary finally got three batting practice fastballs and finally hit one to the the I won I won goes straight to the backstop. Just missed it. Okay. You're on it. Second one fouled off third one. Thank God he put a barrel on it and I mean, yes, he put a barrel on it. He stranded on I I don't even know how you walk off like that like. No, whatever I mean the Dude Dude is hitting one twenty I. guess it's just it's had the worst season of his life. Let the man Strut a Grand Slam. It was such a GimMe I. If there's ever a GimMe Grand Slam. That's if that's ever thing that was it because you get a guy who literally came up because of the extra man for the double header. So this kid has no business pitching in the major leagues in the First Place Rosser already expanded, and and now he's in a pressure situation with the basis loaded. At the India, you know at the end of the game, what was it the seventh inning? Knows the thinning top eight and. And then you go and and you throw three fastballs three three and on the third one you finally hit it. I mean. You can't get a better scenario than what any almost screwed it up. My Dad has a suggestion for you because he was wearing the unleash L. cracking. Shirt today, and this was like Inbetween Games one and two, and he just looks at me I tell Scott to change their shirt to release l.. Well, that is that is that is one of the things or at least the crack. So that's actually the real thing. The. Dude I mean he was just and don't even get me started on the defense. The defense was just freaking abysmal and I was telling the guys in the chat today. When I see Erik Kratz. Just throwing BB's at second base and throwing guys out from his free knees after a dude has a good jump. I mean it was a good job tracks is back. They're throwing guys out on a rope spry. Bryant. A perfect throw you can no longer tell me anything about Gary's arm because it doesn't matter. It's like the only redeeming quality that we have Erik Kratz just did that from his knees thirty eight year old forty year old Eric Crabbie's forty whatever. He's your age is you to the same age? I thought he was thirty eight easy forty. No. They were talking about it on the broadcast today at how he is him and Garcia are the oldest battery for the Yankees since like nineteen o six or something. Stupid. Him and Garcia. Difficult I know but kratz starting by the old HAP-. HAP- was. A starting with. Sorry. Biggest age gap a the mid. No sense so. Age Gap is is twenty years I'm going to just verify the. Twenty one I believe. Yes he is in anyway Eric when when old man Kratz is throwing out from from his knees, it's It's no longer a it's no longer one of those h forty. o June Fifteenth Nineteen I'm older than him by read. By ten days. No so so and did you see how he was like really really giving Garcia a lot of love out like gave him bear because I mean there were there were a lot of there were a lot of reports coming out of the alternate site camp the area fifty one that Erik Kratz was basically talent. When he came up a lot of people were asking him house, Clark Schmidt Look House David Garcia look and like he was he was just flying. Flying Colors these guys are ready. They look phenomenal. They're both ready to go and he wasn't lying Davey. Garcia looked really really good point I getting out of getting out of a jam even when the defense him down luke void has that just an absolutely terrible play. I can't say shit about luke void right now because he's carrying this team but at the same time, it was a terrible defensive play. But David Garcia gets the ground to get out of the inning like, yeah. There were a couple in the run scored was not his fault not hard hit either t looked really didn't walk a guy love that really really good performance. Before I talk about Garcia I've seen to let me vent about Luke Voids defense because he has a stupid first baseman stupid in a bad way obviously the error in the sixth-inning for Garcia. But in extras in the second game, there's two runners on it's I believe it's I in third or first and second and holder gets a ground ball and he goes to second base for the second out those two runners mean nothing get the shore out he barely got the guy at second base in my opinion was a stupid throw to even attempt by Luke voight anyway. Debbie Garcia. That curveball herbals? Nasty. That curve to watch. It's one of those like gives me and then it goes. Twelve. To six love the fact that it has the the the the the the actual optics of that ball. It looks like it like it's on a on a hook like it goes up and down. It doesn't. It doesn't just drop that thing looks like it actually moves up. It's crazy looking. It's good. Gives me the fields man because that was that was. For me his out pitch today I thought he left a couple changeups up, but he didn't show it a ton. So he got away with it has fastball went from ninety to ninety four. He got swings and misses on it. He beat good hitters with it. Cone was talking on the broadcast about how maybe even plays a little late life than it really is. So I'd imagine it has good spin rate. So. He's able to beat beat. He's got a little bit of a deception to with his delivery. Just it's it's a slight deception where where he has that like slight turn and I think, yeah just come from Cohn was talking about to this is something that we saw when he came up last year. And a little bit at the end of the year. But we saw it it does pop flies out of his hand. The ball definitely gets on banners just from their late reactions you can tell it's getting them faster than they think it is. So he looks really good if he can control the control, the strike zone, that's that's it for him. That's he's got all the tools in the world pitches are phenomenal if he can throw the ball where he wants to throw it, you know for the majority of the time that he's GonNa be really really good because he's got electric stuff you really does. Yeah, it was very exciting debut in something the Yankees needs. So desperately as starting pitching. Yeah. Now, just something other than Garrett Cole, every Friday and and look man Michael King Lip really good. That fourth-inning was really unfortunate because he could have been out of that. So you know unscathed and you know the ending would have been very different and you probably would have come out come back out for the fifth who knows what happened. So I was impressed with him I thought he did a good job. I think they should continue to stretch him out and and You know he he's a decent option right there. Yeah and the way that the schedule is just because of all the makeup's in the doubleheaders, they're actually probably going to need to have six starters. So so Garcia I think is GonNa get another shot he needs to I mean. He asked him he has to get. No but the. Times you'll have a double-header and you'll call up a kid and it's just like well, this is a one and done no matter how you pitch you could go one inning or nine innings. This is a one and done I don't think that's the situation though with Garcia and I'm happy about that I want to impeach again I said this in a in the post game wrap today. Do needs to be out there every fifth day every fifth day everybody wants to see him pitch number one the Yankees every fan out here wants to see him pitch every fifth day. He's giving them a shot in the arm an opportunity to now grow with with what he's with what he's doing. He's he's got an opportunity to create that confidence and really give this team a boost when they desperately need some type of good news that's coming out of nowhere because all it happens this team is injury after injury after injury, it's another. Good. So can we get some Hicks leaves with an injury? It's like even today in two wins to exciting winds Hicks is a hero he hits a game-tying home run, but he leaves the second game with an injury. So it's even in even in good times it's injuries are we? Oblique Ya. I mean it was on a swing. Issue but K. said. Tightness in bolt he said I didn't I didn't hear him say I didn't hear with it. They updated it like an inning later and they said he left with tightness in both cavs. So that's like that's like a Tanaka injuring bolt hamstrings while running. He did it. It was weird fix it was a swing and you could see him grimacing yeah I'm with you like Oh that's an oblique. That's eight weeks right there but they're saying calf muscles I mean who it's another soft tissue it's just it's. Another muscular injury with Hamra attendant of some sort I mean I'm no I'm no longer surprised by any injury that this team rates. Yeah it's unfortunate but that's why they need to go. So they need to be deeper in the starting pitching. So you got to get this guy in there. I mean look there's so many freaking games coming up. He should be on the Rosser keep them on the Goddamn Rosser. The next. They have six games in the next day Michael King as well. Continue to stretch him out because they're going to need starting pitchers kicks. Guess what there's going to be another injury. There's going to be another injury in the starting pitching. Did. You find it odd that Brian Cashman after Saturday's game said, you will see Garcia or Clark Schmidt or both tomorrow full wellink full well knowing he's not they're not activating Clark show maybe they're gonNA activate Clarkson at some point this season but. I don't know. It's just kind of like distant was he just like giving fans a little dangling carrot in front of fans there like why not just say Yeah Garcia's getting start tomorrow in Clark. Schmitz. Because maybe they're both maybe considerations and he he's not making that final call. So He's wonder he didn't have the information of which guy was gonNA come up. He knew prob- probably going to be. To, start reading into what these guys say I, it just drives you insane for what I'm not gonna read into what Aaron Boone or Brian, cashman. So I those are the two guys you read into what they say those are the faces of the Yankees in situations like that when there's no objective fact that could be said that is that's known. We don't know that there's a fact out there. Maybe, they do maybe they don't, but he didn't obviously didn't want to say it for some reason maybe he was trying to shield whomever was going to be from the mets forgetting maybe they were going to say at home all night and watch film on One guy if you only said one guy and now we gave him double the homework. So. This was in my mind I was saying if you're if you know you're GonNa Start Debbie Garcia tomorrow which they announced. Late last night I believe. Why not start having game one that was what I was thinking like, why make them sit around for three or four hours while the team is playing to just get the start and game two it didn't matter. He was poised I was wrong. But that was my thinking going into it. You know just sort of give the kid let them show up to the ballpark and not have him sit around. I. Mean I think sitting around helps you you're around the guys you're watching a game. So the otherwise you're going in and you're. About to make your debut coming like you're getting through a game like you're getting your legs under you a little bit by that first game I'd WanNa get out there. That's like that's like on on the I T I wanna go I I don't want to go forth go forth. I want to see what's. What other schmucks do in front of me so that I know what I need to I need pressure I want to go. First I. WANNA pipe it three hundred yards and everyone else schenken into the woods pipe in three hundred yards. I mean I have? Okay. It's like it's like Brian Cashman speaker at their. I mean you don't know we've never. Brian CASHMAN speak right exactly. Thank you. I don't believe you. Okay, we'll. We'll. We'll eventually golf togetherness effect. Listen. I'm not a good golfer but I can't hit it three hundred yards. So do you believe Brian Cashman when he says that Aaron Judge will probably need twice as long on the I l. for a rag rotation of same. That means nothing to me. He's going to need an extended to be there. Are probably double the amount of time. So beyond ten days. So twenty. Told you before he said that he was not going to be back in ten days. When he does this has the same as the second time. We're looking at mid-september. Let's call it September, fifteenth of an Arizona, come back a series or two before the playoffs. To, get to get rice that's that's essentially. Half of a sixty game season, which is already thirty seven percent of full season. So if this was a real season Aaron judge plays. Forty or no because it's not you're not gonNA you're not gonna keep the comparison Aaron Judge Again, depending on what the injury is you're gonna you would probably see him come back to play for more but because of this situation as well, they're just gonNA, hold them out did look. The. We said, we said this before the season started on the eve of the season they're like Oh yeah. By the way to more everybody's making the playoffs and when they did that there are so many scenarios that just like hurt the game this is one of them. The Yankees know that they're going to be in the playoffs in some capacity. So there's no rush to get guys back. There's just not. Well, and so I agree with you that you could tell by how the Yankees managed. The First Game Brooks Christie is out there to face. I think ten batters when he clearly had nothing and they were just pissing the game away know the Yankees came back but we didn't think they were gonNA come back. It looked like an insurmountable lead with how the team was hitting and it really hit me. Why am I, getting bent out of shape about this game when the Yankees are not getting bent out of shape about this game because it truly does not matter and I think they don't care if there the first seed or the seed for especially now, when we're all these the talk of the bubble's GonNa be out there it doesn't matter matters. And look at the standings. So Tampa has got the best record in the American league and you've got the Yankees in second place there. You've got the white SOX CLEVELAND AND MINNESOTA ALL bunched up in the central and you've got Oakland a couple of games up on Houston but if you just take the top eight teams okay. They're all above five hundred obviously actually the top nine teams are five hundred. Detroit is sixteen in Sixteen at exactly five hundred everyone else is well below five hundred you can cut a right everybody else off. So I don't even think you can include Detroit. Argument so I could tell you right now the eight playoff teams are going to be the Yankees. The raise, the White Sox, the Indians, the twins, the Astros, and the athletics. Those are eight playoff teams. The Yankees are one of them and as I said, they don't care if the eighth seed, the fifth seed or the first seat. No matter. I agree I it's annoying I mean it's annoying. It's it's annoying I guess it's a real once you realize it's like okay. Well, Brooks Chris going to get there. Also the other thing about that is you may you may start looking closer to. Actually think they will. Start Looking at what that matchup could be done who you're going face the first round like they're gonNa want the Rach up they're gonNA. Want some you know a match up that favors that in some way you might look into a couple of weeks is what I'm saying. So you're not only you're not only You know completely throwing away the importance of the regular season but now you're also going to be like jockeying for position potentially with like completely thrown games maybe or you just it's going to be. It's GONNA be Weird. For for going to be some. Thank now, nothing matters you think. But do you think they? Truly do not care if they win the American League East. Because if you win your division, you do play at home I. Know You say there's no homefield advantage but we've seen the Yankees are better home team than they are Rotea you agree with that. Yeah it depends where they are but yeah, for the most part. So the Yankees are playing Tampa again at home for three games this week Tampa as I said, kind of running away with the American league. If the Yankees do not at least win this series. Can you right off the? American League East. With. The with the players that are on the team now. Yeah. Pretty much unless Tampa just gets devastated by more injuries, but it doesn't seem like they have been sentenced. Over there because they they just keep throwing guys up there that are that are good. So yeah, I mean it's looking right now that the Yankees have to make a move on Tampa in this series, and if they don't that alias looks like it's gone, I cannot believe for saying this, but it is what it is. And now you only. With the Blue Jays now are are now. Clawing for. For the the second place team in the American league with matter because it's you got ten games against him and a lot of games going. So here's here's the other thing Baltimore. We will not leave. I don't feel confident about losers Baltimore anymore team. But. Now you can't you can't. Do that but the point is they're not that far off their five games I know six, they're under five. I know. But look at this weekend could have been very easily could have been. Oh. It was almost a disaster and I don't think that's even with the fact that they don't care. If they're the eight seed, it would have been a disaster to lose four out of five or even find out five this weekend. Yeah it's going to be. The only the on. We're going to look back potentially and say, even though we were mocking it and still mocking it the fact that they added two more to more playoff teams to the Both sides who we may, we may look at saving grace. Didn't think were going to need that didn't think we were going to need thanks rob thanks Manfred and now so if they can imagine the Yankees. Backed in the last playoff spot just imagine that right and then ran it all the way and won and won the world series. Can you imagine even now it's a shortened series and they got the extra. Playoff spot that didn't exist. You know forty eight hours before the season started. Well. I I mean essentially what Has Done is they've done a sixty game qualifying round for a tournament. which kind of makes me wonder like why not just do a tournament to begin with but that's what we were saying WBZ baby go yeah. Yeah. But whatever it is what it is at this point I still. I still think some of the things that have happened over the last week have been frustrating, but at the same time. When we last talked to, they just lost the double header in Atlanta and Chad Green. Blue Blue, the second game when they took out. Tanaka. After, sixty six pitches, and then on Friday, they had another lead and they took out Jordan Montgomery in the sixth inning for Chad Green, who montgomery been pitching well, but the tying run was on and pita Lonzo was up again. That's the right call by Aaron Boone to do that. It didn't work out just because it didn't work out doesn't mean it was a dumb decision and I find it frustrating that people. Can Acknowledge that you and I criticize Boone I think when he's deserves to be criticised doesn't deserve to be criticized when he brings in Chad. Green to face Pete Lonzo as the tying run know when when you have Especially, the tobacco match up, you have a guy who is. Look too bad matchup for Monte, looking at your he you know there's runners on now he's he starting to leak a little bit and you have a guy that's been that you know it's your guy no matter. What's happened I mean Greens. Nothing, nothing great today he looked phenomenal but you know he's he's definitely let them some home runs that were that were not ideal for this team but he's still a guy that's trusted and in that situation you you make the change it's there's no doubt about it. You try to. You try to knock that knocked out I mean same thing with with others Chapman. There's no fault there. Boone executed pitches. Execute. I tweeted out jokingly late Friday night men what an idiot boone is for not leaving in. Lewis. For the ninth inning and going to a raw chapman because I feel like that's how some Yankees fans treated that moment. Oh my God all this Chapman gave up a walk off two run home run gotta be Boone's fault how about blaming you're seventeen million dollar a year closer for giving up a walk off home run sometimes it's just on the player. It's true. It's sometimes on the player and manager will take the blame and he will you know the the social media accountable will eviscerate for no good reason because if the move works then you're looking at it like, yeah of course, that's why wouldn't he be in? Of course he's in. Didn't work. So it is what it is. The J. J. thing was probably the now we get to the J half one. Now we get to the J. One and you bring in. Amount of. Vino. In a one run game in the eighth inning, not the sydell thinning not seventh-inning. The eighth inning you go to adamant Avino and a lefty it would've been a lefty righty matchup homerun HAP- he's he's a fly ball pitcher and a juice bowl era. Those two things do not mix those oil and Water Scott. Let me tell you something here. Jay had had no business being in the game at that point in the first place he had no, he had no business being the game the ending before that and he was there he was there pitching his azoff. This is this is the eye test. This is the nerd tests. I don't even need your numbers because that doesn't matter I already know what the numbers are. The numbers are bad. The numbers will look bad when you when you look at J. Hat third time through the lineup, they're bad they're bad numbers thousand percent bad numbers. I, test says that guy's real that guy has something to prove. There's a little bit of juice behind what's going on here and him and Croats have a good thing going. To quote about Kratz. So Jay after the game says I got rhythm with my delivery. I can't say enough about Erik Kratz we were on the same page helped me out a lot. Personal Catcher situation with happy and cross. It's not just him because David Garcia who calls him padre. He's loving some Croats to the. They talking about it on the broadcast today they got an interesting decision come come time when when Hagi is is ready to come back because now he's come back and he's out of options from I was surprised I thought he still had another option but no, he's out of options. So he could go. He could get snagged well, does the doesn't alternate spot does a taxi squad think it does being downs. And also I mean Crat Kratz is going to be on the. Me You you designate Kratz, he can leave to. No I don't think taxi squad is designating for assignment I. Think it's just texted squad. You're still getting paid I think in the on the active roster. You're not on the active roster you're not on the active roster that option but you're not. You're also not at alternate site though the alternate site is just named alternate side because there's no freaking minor league baseball. That's the only reason it's called alternate cite Andrew. mcadoo is it would be called Scranton. So. Are you saying that the choice? So you're saying maybe released Gary. Gary Sanchez. I was wondering if they could designate Kratz a coach. Oh But coach he might need need a coach and then and then just like. AM. Bumping back from coach. To player. Option. Knitting him, you're promoting him. I certainly appreciate what Kratz has done for the team. and. It was interesting that they did not pinch hit for Kratz on Saturday with layoff wanted to give him a full day's rest. Get. A clear mind just get away from it. All forget about yeah or game two on Sunday they dare Gary Forgot his. which probably haven't. Didn't bring it's cozy Gary Sanchez. Strike Years The guy who had forget his cup and then just can't play because they're the rules say you have to work up? And then Gary Gary Hart's the team pulled Ozzy forgot the company the rules actually say you need you literally? Little. Decision. He kept dangling it's up to. Gary Sanchez I could see being that guy. Gary Sanchez wants to hang brain behind the plate. He can hang brain. But that's GonNa be an interesting decision because aircrafts has been good. He's been. He's been good there. I mean it's really a no brainer at the end if you're choosing between one or the other one of them is a much younger guy who's been with the system for a long time but not an easy decision not one you want to swallow maybe it's maybe it's on crafts where he's just GonNa take the assignment and understand that he's going to be back up or he's going to be working in that. There's going to be like a you know. Just to say, you know when the season's over wink wake. Job Job. For. You guys have counted on restaurants, and now they're counting on you while they're dining.

Is. What Brian Cashman said he did not have a good season last year. He had a poor season last year. He's gotten out of the gate, not very successful for us this year. Or. Certainly, hopefully he can. He can step up and pitch well for us today and help us win a game but it's pure baseball. You get a chance to play more with positive performance. You get the chance to play less with negative performance. It's as simple as that were not trying to complicate anything our job is trying to win baseball games, but the best players out there. On the field under those circumstances nothing more nothing less. Oh. WHAT IF THEY'RE What if their service time is in question? So. What do you think is Brian Cashman's worst nightmare getting Jay Paying him seventeen million dollars in two thousand, twenty S. Would do you think he would Gla- Pitch well. He's GonNa get another start next week and because they have no other options because of the amount of the headers and he's pitching. Right. So but but but say happy goes out there actually think he's going to face the mets on Thursday. Five innings, three runs. Does, he get his Ex Star S. Okay. So don't you think the Yankees would gladly sacrifice a couple of games this year to not have to pay that seventeen million dollars this year what's more important to the Yankees success not paying HAP- seventeen million next year or losing a few extra ball games this year well, the thing is the him going out there and pitching doesn't necessarily mean that they're going to have to pay him next year. It's all about what happens in the arbitration case it all depends on what happens on the baseball field at all but he pitches well the rest of the year they're going to have to pay. Look Man. Look. Let me tell you something if Jay hat pitches well for the rest of the year and shows that he's a good pitcher again. I'm fine with him being my number five starter. No, they still don't want to. Hit. The thing is if he pitches well and does that they're going to give him every opportunity, they should provide the opportunity for him to effort up. If they want to prove that point, it doesn't matter as much. Do you think Brian Cashman secretly hoping he just goes out there and shits the bed yet probably a little bit. Because they know, they're gonNA, make the playoffs like he wants the Yankees to win like he hopes. Playoffs it goes back to that. Yeah. And then the arbitration case of makes nine or ten starts any pitches decently. I don't see how the Yankees are. GonNa win that arbitration case despite his performance last year I mean they'll lean on the second half. They'll be like well, you know what actually J. Cap was was was a very effective pitcher in the moments that were most necessary when they needed him at the end of the year he showed up, he was there consummate pro struggled all year but still consummate pro found the ball found the pitch found the grip found whatever he had to do to be an effective pitcher in the second half I mean I could lay this case out pretty easily. How many starts do you need to see from hat before you actually believe he is figured something out. One starts not going to do he was he's been good to in a row now but the. He was okay. His previous timeout. Okay. He pitched five it. I. Mean that doesn't mean anything. That's that's that's eight innings five years ago. So you selling. Knock is not the means nothing. I believe he gave up five runs or three runs. Great. Perfect. He's third best pitcher on the team. He's gotTa go out there. Well so it goes Garrett Cole that whose number two. Or J. depending on what the I mean David is hasn't he hasn't heard us yet. He hasn't come yet. When that happens we can we can start talking shit about him but until that happens I. will I'm going to have a much longer leash on that kid I liked I could. ally. And I really hope they're not just showing him to get rid of him to to get some stupid veteran player that's going to underperform. Lance Lynn bring bring hotdog Glenn Beck and then I'll take land but well, did you see a quote Sorry. The Rangers are very very. They're always hesitant deadline to trade. You remember when Mike Minor was available and for whatever reason did not get rid of him at that point. Yep they're stubborn yet. So Jeff Passan tweeted out a A quote from so the Rangers Twelve and twenty one they're done. But Jeff Passan's said that from an anonymous GM, the Rangers hold the key to the deadline and referring to Joey Gallo Lance Lynn and the price is extremely high on both players. I. Mean. Why not? But are you giving up prospects for Lance Lynn The good profit prospects. No, I'm not. That's what it's. GonNa cost I mean I. Guess It depends on who these prospects are really because when you look at the good prospects I mean if we're talking about like top five guys one number one is gone It would be it would be like a clerk Schmidt type, guy honestly. I'm sorry I'm not giving up maybe it's because the Yankees had Lance Lynn in two thousand eighteen maybe maybe it's because. He's got one more you're paying for. So you're getting an additional year on what what technically and theoretically should be. Again, this window that's closing but you're also we're still at a picquier now, and if you could bottle up Lance Lynn has has done in Texas. Now, you're getting a very, very, very solid number pitcher. In a in a year then in a year that you should win the world series. Or a very much this who just came off this was A. I think if this was a full year maybe maybe. But. It reality is what it is. This is not the same thing as a full year. It's just not I and maybe it's because I know the players on the. Next year as well. So you're getting also next year. That's a big deal. That's a full year of a guy who who are you need? The equation and the fact that he was on our team and looks very I don't know. It's hard. Not Look as effective when he doesn't have the beard to be honest. It's not as doesn't he kind of look like Java, Chamberlain with a Little Java thing going on but. Give it of the beard at this point like you get rid of the beard later at the end of his career not good look but job early on. Look. Look look at. Okay. So are you giving up clutch? Schmidt plus like a lower level prospect or even collect Schmidt plus do her for Lance Lynn. You gotTA, look at it I mean you got to evaluate that and look to see with with that is because the fact again, like I said this is closing you need pitching badly if there's a guy who is proving the right now that he has turned a corner and is able to do it and he's not a young guy I mean he's he's a he's he's. He's He's figured something out right? Like he's thirty three. Would you believe that he's figuring turned thirty? There's something there Veasley he's been. He's been one of the pitchers in baseball since the start of two thousand, nineteen, he's Figured something out. So yeah, I would I would be they have to win next year they have to. So. He is four. This year he's making eleven point three, million, twenty, twenty one he is nine point three million. So He's getting a pay decrease Scott we should have just signed him. He has a no trade. Clause. To. Not. The Yankees are not on the list angels dodgers. Arizona he doesn't want to go to the West. Coast Audrey Oh west coast no-trade clause interesting. So. Yeah. I I don't know what Clarkson clerkship with look. Great we we. He looks exciting. He looks like a pitcher. Do we think he's got potential to be a number two in next year because next year's we need we need we need to nectar. Yah and if Lance Lynn if you can if you can guarantee Lance Lynn will be what he is currently for the next year and not that. I mean I. Don't know what to tell you this. Real thing so you cannot finish. What I'm saying is if you have Confidence Lance, Lynn is what he is for the next year and a half and you're paying them nine point three million dollars next year, which for a the pitcher he is now is that. Damn Bar I mean the contract the contract value is moot. You Got Coal Lynn Severino, Montgomery. Someone else next year whether it's dovey whether it's the map whether it's Tanaka whether it's Paxton whoever? That's very And you gotta play for that. You gotTA play for the World Series. Got To play the you're saying I are. But if you're maybe you wouldn't want a weird year two. But, but if you're only going to win one in the weird year, that's not worth it. No. Again, this is a real thing. So there are no guarantees here. You have the opportunity to win to. It's not know it could be. That's the thing like God but come on. It's a bad look that Lance Lynn would sure I don't give it doesn't matter what the look is. He's a different pitcher I. I don't know what happened in Texas, but the guy figured it out and when he went, there would be a really bad luck as if he came to the. Just. Like you know because everybody's GonNa be expecting that you know that and Brian. Has Not done well with pitchers this this. Bad he was. I liked him he. if Bryce per this could be legacy decision. For Brian Cashman because the biggest knock for Brian Cashman, the Elway, the biggest knock for him is being able to identify and and. Real in pitching talent that's not by paying them the most money it's going out there identifying, making a trade identifying that I am giving up a very good prospect here a very good prospect to go get a guy like. Look. Do they give up their number one pitching prospect Justice Sheffield for James Paxson. Is there anyone on the Yankees Prospect Board that is untouchable for you demand Dominguez is definitely a Mueller. Sume. He's. Untouchable. I mean I'm assuming that's what the Rangers are starting with Idaho I. Don't think you have a conversation if you start there. So I don't think there's I mean, he's going be the number one prospect in baseball soon. So they're starting with. With. Clark Schmidt. Plus. I think so. Or maybe you're just put himself in that in that I don't think it would be. I think they would. They want more of the pedigree starting starting pitcher but. It's going to be one of those guys probably. Yeah I mean that would be be interesting because if that doesn't work out that that's a real bad law terrible luck. Yeah. CORTRA-. Rhinos. Number two prospect believe diversity is number three. Number three. So the I found it interesting the the win on Saturday when Batanes through the wild pitch? To To win the game of the Yankees. Kratz was squaring to bunt with Clint Frazier on third so they were going to do a squeeze play. That is not very late two, thousand, ten's Yankees like. It was a safety squeeze 'cause. I'm I trust? I trust that is. He's a fundamentally I'd. He went to the Tom Manzke School of and you don't stay in the League mcgriff would be to stay in the league this long and you're not. Up Up to snuff on your fundamentals that guy can bunt Right. He. Still plays pepper before games. The thing I was really looking forward to with these extra inning games with the runner starting on second base hot as the Yankees. Hand like that's why I wanted to see it do they everybody's They didn't bunt they're trying to hit the ball five, hundred feet. No matter who it is. They were lucky to win the first game I think because. Got bloop single by Geo. With to outscore the run and great and then today they loaded the bases and Gary Sanchez. Hit a batting practice batting practice pitch five, hundred feet batting practice pitcher that he got the the the jordy mercer non bunt drove meal. Little nuts. Sitting there like what are we doing here like I even if you're not gonNA. But if you're not to bunch already mercer who the Hell I definitely call them jody mercer because I feel like that's what it should be. I feel like Jodi Mercer when I see him, he's A. you know a a baseball tops baseball card from nineteen ninety-five. Well. I mean it's just not how the are built. it's it's not in their philosophy it's not heather bill. They refused to do it even when Jodi Jordy Mercer Excuse me Jordy Mercer is at the plate. Don't you sully his good? That's ridiculous. That's ridiculous I agree I agree but. That's how they operate He did get a knock later in the game to. Of course he did it set up the winning run. Not. The same situation though. Delegates is still still win in the Yankees ballgames and he still he still got velocity issues and now kind of like aknowledging that that's it like that's probably what it's going to be ninety four. So I guess this last time when he was with the Yankees when he couldn't get it ramped up again by saying the same dialogue same dialogue because he always does this spring training. He never got back up. That's a shame. It's a shame. It's a shame what happened to him and his honestly. Did be whips kill him. Said I was such a huge is awesome. Yeah. I thought he's just got a bad rap with the team. He was. He got he got screwed by the team for a while and then when he had the opportunity to like I'm a bona closer shit the bed completely shut the bed. Situation. Anything else baseball. Wise you WanNa talk about from from the weekend. I mean I really can't stress enough how huge those three wins were like to to really feel good about that weekend versus feeling terrible J. Half throw ninety four miles per hour. cording to era. That's a big difference between him. Throw Ninety, three, ninety, four, the different J. Ninety-three. Badger ninety-four good job so. So. Was the gone hot or was he? Figure out an arm slot is he pissed at Brian. Cashman for skin starts look what's going on with seventeen million dollars on the line. Talking motivate someone dangle. Seventy. Got Seventeen million dollars like waiting for him and and if he pitches well, he's a much better chance to get it. So yeah, I think he's he's he's doing that. And I look I always look at that guy and I still feel like at some point, he's going to figure it out because that's what he's done his entire career and the guys thirty eight years old still pitching in the bigs again with diminished velocity really or like there's no telltale sign why he's worst besides the fact that the ball now that was caught in the outfield is going out of the stadium. So that alone is the only difference in him and. I can only imagine how frustrating that is as a guy who has been really a very solid starting pitcher, his entire career so. I just I it feels like he's to figure it out and that type of pro. So. You know bodies not giving up on him. That's that's clear. We got a mailbag question from John M. As I watch boone manage and take another starter out at sixty seven pitches to have green come in and blow the game to the mets wonder what do you think about boone not having Larry Rothschild to lean on anymore Larry had managed before with the pitching coach for a while. This year boone does not have an experienced pitching coach. Does not have an experience pitching coach to truly manage on his own. And appears he has no he has no ability to manage a pitching staff. What are your thoughts? Do you think? Boone. Mrs. Larry there to aid in pitching decisions and I should proof read that paragraph. I think it's actually a pretty good point. The the fact that he doesn't have just that voice that that other decision maker who he knows has been there before to throw things against and just just run through scenarios in the same in the same way I I think it I think it is it is part of it. It's not it's not easy. Larry got shit all over but people were but that doesn't mean that that he wasn't counseled Tabun at that point I mean I think Phil Nevin is a guy that fills in that spot who's been around baseball forever and a day as well. But he's not the same he doesn't same experience by any means that Larry routes. Child was was a manager. And he was the holdover. So there was he was the only coaching hold holdover from the. The sites hockey in the bullpen, but but that's not all interaction hockey's. Hockey's great dude. Hockey's just out there Yuk ended up with the dudes in the bullpen. That's his term. So I think it is a valid point. You know just just based on experience because he's not looking at. Matthew Blaine or Mark Blake for any type of any type of guidance David lays looking magician. He's constantly in his in his notes like a nerd sitting there like looking at the numbers I thought you were on board with the nerd you're are so excited about map play in game is different. It's different. You gotta feeling game like he he he just doesn't have the same experience he really relies on the numbers limits. To what John is talking about pulling a starter after five innings or before the third time to the order is nothing new to map lake that's been happening with the Yankees for two years and he's the reason it's happening because the nerves telling you that there are no longer effective at that point. Okay. It doesn't cover like the same. Hey, met same. Today he's like, Oh like on the field. Out there sorrow bad Yeah. That's really sad if that's the actual case, I think it's part of the case. That'd be I, mean look he I know he's he's he's also more of a nerd in the mechanics as well, and the way that he uses all the technology to do that uses technology. The. I like I like how preparations are used and how and how the the cool nerds are are using those those types of analytics although I must say getting Gary Sanchez isn't even more trouble. For the way that we're he, he's being prepared being on one day like the dude can't handle it. You just can't handle it. You know. So you are. You're let's. Let's pause on this Gary Sanchez thing because. I saw you post in the the back and chat like your. You're your what is Gary Sanchez good for at this point he's just if he's not hitting and he's not catching the ball is just I mean yeah. No. I agree or not hitting you're not catching the ball playing defense. Actually. Stand because this is really getting fed up with it. I'm getting fed up with I'm but look at the so he's hitting. Let me just decorated Slam Grand Slam was great at one the game. Absolutely it means nothing to me in the grand scheme of the way he's playing because he's going to go another two weeks now and just strike out looking like an idiot in other situations where fastball is not coming at him as a known quantity he knew that ball was coming down the gut three times. Okay. He's hitting one, twenty, three it's it's truly atrocious. Okay. One Twenty is laughably bat but you've got Aaron. Hicks hitting two hundred. You've got Mike Ford hitting one eighty you've got Brett Gardner One, seventy, nine you've got Tyler Wade hitting one, seventy six so so it's not like Gary Sanchez the only one who's not hitting if everybody jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge would you jump? Does it make it a better decision at that point life? No, it doesn't. It's my. My point is is this Gary Sanchez? Or is this Gary Sanchez in a weird twenty twenty and things players around the league or not here's Okay I saw an article written by Chad Jennings in the athletic about how jd Martinez is just absolutely lost the videos you can't. He can't go back and watch videotapes. So yeah. Okay. But Jd Martinez is a great header has been a great hitter for a long time in the sucks I mean there's something that's changed for him and he's acknowledged it. May Gary Sanchez can't watch the replace. Here's what I here's my here's my take on. Gary Sanchez is an offensive player and I think this is. I I really think this is probably pretty accurate. When when when our lineup is healthy and Gary Sanchez in this lineup I think he has the ability to be good I think when more of the onus is on Gary Sanchez to carry the lineup and pitchers can now effectively pitch around him or not be pressed to throw him strikes on pitch on pitch counts where he knows strikes are coming. Then he is a very, very average batter when he doesn't know what's coming or can't. You know be sandwiched between two headers. He's a problem. Today was a similar situation of being sandwiched in between there were bases were loaded, ended the game. You got a scrub kit up there on a mets team. He's just coming onto this team is the last guy. You knew you were getting through fastball the at some point. All you to do is wait for them swung a missed the first one the ball foul back. Second one he fell off third one he got great. It's not going to be the situation when there's more onus on him, a pitcher could actually try to pitch around him and exposes week this he's getting exposed. I mean certainly been exposed all year but your argument doesn't make sense because the first three weeks of the season Aaron judge was there Lemay he was fully healthy stanton was there all those guys were there was there and Gary Sanchez says that he needs those guys to be good I'm not saying he can't suck with those guys there to say he needs those. So, he he is the epitome of what baseball is today it's he's going to have production numbers at the end of the year. The numbers last year were good. He had maybe numbers he had he did have protection there are there were guys around him that were playing out of their minds. I I just I need to see him. I need to see him act alone a little bit and and take it and be able to make strides consistent strides. It's frustrating when I see that the guys that you mentioned besides Hicks who is our center fielder or all platoon they are. They are role player guys they're not. Brand. Breath cars all this shit he's. One Oh. You're talking about the guy sitting under Tyler Wade, Mike Ford. These are guys that I don't expect a lot from I did expect more from Ford I will say but It makes more sense that they're struggling. Gary Sanchez the starting catcher supposed to be a stud and you just looks lost half the time and it's not just offensively he has looked. Tremendously, bad defensively this year. I mean absolutely back. Even though the framing numbers are better. Yeah, I agree. No, I'm not defending. Gary Sanchez do not mistake this for me. It's more to the point. I do have higher expectations for him. He's the starting catcher on this team should know you absolutely should have higher just he gives you in other situations. He gives you terrible at bats I mean the the in the first game of the doubleheader today there was a first pitch flyable. Center field had run around second base could have runner didn't put a good at bat together. It was just it was. He was out before he was and yet did not yeah and there are too many of those. Great. Problem I. I. Agree wholeheartedly. This year it's been it's been a disaster for Gary Sanchez. He has been the most disappointing player on the team so far this year and everything says he's healthy right there's nothing Just. Yeah. I mean, if you listen if there was one one percent wrong with Gary Sanchez, he'd be on the I l. rate and they have no catchers. Would love nothing more than to be able to put Gary Sanchez on the I l. for a hamstring injury, and they used that as an excuse for he's been struggling. So I mean, that's I got to a point of Ta- that fly ball was frustrating for me. I got you. A, there was another fastball in the dirt that he just doesn't move is fi movies body over to lock like there was some some pitches that were yanked at to get a shot at and he shouldn't have locked but. Kratz made a couple of good blocks on some Debbie Garcia curve balls today, and I'm like that. Those are those are at the backstop with Gary Sanchez Crashes Goddamn Professional. Even when Gary? Gets down and blocks. It's never square and it's always off to one side. So the rudders can still advance. Yeah. He's made up for it because of because of the arm and that's that's what he's He's he's been able to do. So Look I. Am not by any means giving up on him that's not that's not a but I it's frustrating to watch him. You're not far off. It's not far off but I know he's not going anywhere either so. You're right. All right. Well. WH- wacky weekend, that's all I can say it was a wacky weekend. I'm glad we got to see data that was a big positive. A big plus is that your biggest? J.. Knotted up when he needed to bottom line, he did. All jokes aside, let's he did in a big situation because they just got freaking swept by the Goddamn mets and a all this Chapman got beat and that was an Chad Greg walked off at Yankee Stadium. The mess. Walked off. I mean, how have you talked about twenty twenty freaking nutshell that is some weird shit. So you come back on a day when j hops. Pitching easily could go out there. Put up a files were every Yankees fan is fully expecting to just get. The crap beaten out of them on Saturday except for me I was not expecting expecting to get I wasn't expecting what I saw. I was expecting a good start I was expecting some depth and I had a feeling that they were going to go with them a little longer because of that because he's he's a guy who's going to handle it if he's going well. Let's put it this way the biggest. Takeaway or the biggest thing to come out of the weekend might BJ HAP and it's because he might he could shift the tide for the starting rotation to sort of bridge the gap until some some guys get healthier and also it could have really big impacts on twenty twenty one but the biggest exciting thing to have in this weekend was you some people will say the Gary Sanchez Grand Slam because they will be blind to everything else and they will just see that and that's fine. They will not look at the ninety one mile an hour fastball down the middle. Or would being the third one of the I can't stress that enough the. Even in the moment it was so like okay like literally every Major League hitter could have had that out and probably would've done on the second one but. They wouldn't have hit four, fifty, four, fifty glut it would have gone on to the Ballpark Hey, three fifty counts just the same return Herod Heck knows that three zero, three, nine yeah aired Hicks Pimp. That at one foot over the fence I mean come on. So it's either a single or a home run. So he's on I either way it's like it's that he ain't going anywhere if that ball bounces off the wall. But yeah. Fun Exciting Kid. Maybe that's how he hurt both happens possible He's fun. It's he's he's He's a he's really a fun kid to watch. So I hope we get to see him for the rest of the year I. Really Do really really hope they do not end up sending him back down because it would be it would be a damn shame and honestly like you're saying they're if they're if they're trying to put the best people out there. You you play with your young guys right now the guys are where this game is going. They can't look fans in the is they can't. They don't have to say our best option right now for the next turn is not difficulty you just pick six be beautiful in it. Yeah. Yeah. They don't have anybody in the that's the thing like they got. It's easy easy to do now easy easy to do zoom rooms. And Kohl's pitching Monday against. Tampa looking for a rebound start after he give. To to Atlanta it's versus glass down I. Mean I I know it. Again. It's going to be even though now offense is dog shit and is probably. Could be a frigging, very tough match-up against now. Listen like even if the Yankees don't care if they don't win the division, you still want them to play better against Sherpa. Because if they have to face Tampa in the playoffs, they've gotten the crappy not of him so far. So play well against Tampa this week. That's what I asked for. I need to fight man give me some fight scratching claw a couple of games. Let's get this mentality backup people don't WanNa relive the past about like the next Man Shit I worked they. They all got behind it. They need something to get behind. So you know maybe that's Erik Kratz. Headband he wears under his helmet. Whether board I don't care what it is. They need something to get behind and rallied these. These guys income out there especially. How can you? How can you look if you needed another situation besides Garrett Cole Against Glass? Now. Against the race who are above you in the division now. What you get you up. It's a it's not upstart for called the it's for for the offense moreover, because I expected from coal I expect colby out there a professional and and will give us a damn good outing I. fully expect that it's about the offense coming in putting the at bats against glass now and actually getting to him and being able to push across a few runs and give Gerke coal and the opportunity when the game. I feel a little upset that it took us an hour to mention that Dj. Lemay. Hookah. Back. Ahead of schedule. Do I barely even realize that he was gone because he's just always there I forgot Oh, I realized he was on the field, but my point is he's back. You're like Oh. Yeah he's there he's always. And I did that happen on Thursday? That, happened after we recorded I think that I feel like we knew it what. Happened on. The No. No. So Friday he didn't play. He was activated on Saturday. Fridays when They teased it. He could be back this weekend and then boom Saturday morning lineup. I love it I mean. So they are three with him back. That's what happened. He. Goes back in the lineup and they don't lose. Okay. Very, very true. Extend that man right now. Test is nervous stj. WHO's good. Completely, overlooked the biggest thing of the deal being back. US All, right? That's GonNa do it for this owed some robot questions submit for test versus Nerd test didn't really do a full one this this show, but we'll do it on Thursday.

That's eighty dates seven to nine three, seven, seven, six dollars straits or brought to you by straight talk wireless, best phones, best networks, no contracts. If I don't sound. Like my usual self. You know what. You saw what happened last night. We got a lot of stuff to talk about today, particularly as retains the National Football League. But you know what? So mama. You saw it. The New York Yankees. Todd one one in this best of five series against the Boston Red Sox. A necessary that once came back from a three, oh, deficit and one and CS over the New York Yankees. A franchise that has been heated and hated for many, many years. A franchise that just one hundred eight games during the regular season and the day they clinched the American League east was in the backyard on home turf rather of the New York Yankees. Celebrated in their clubhouse, doused champagne on themselves, laughed up a storm. And then waited. Waiting for the New York Yankees to play that play in game against the Oakland a.'s waiting for the New York Yankees. She said to play, but wild game. Where for the New York Yankees, this missed with disrespect and apathy. The fact that the Yankees won one hundred games this year. And then even after the series was tied one one. Aaron, judge blaring as Frank Sinatra, New York to your music in the Red Sox. The wretched over dugout. They come back to the stadium. And what happens. They did you gentlemen what happens. The Yankees proceed to get smacked sixteen to one game three. They get out scored twenty two, four on their home turf. And once again, the Boston Red Sox not only win. But celebrate. Inside Yankee Stadium that probably better than celebrate that Fenway. You can't make this up. And there's a lot of things to look at. There's a lot of things to point to. I do not believe for the record that this was a situation where Aaron Boone was getting out managed. Do I think he did a sensational job? No, no, I do not. But was he got off? I don't believe that. He didn't get out managed the Yankees got played. That's what happened. The Yankees got up playing the Boston. Red Sox won on the field. It wasn't in a dugout. It was on the field. Alex Cora commend. He's a good job. Nobody's taking anything away from him. Let's pump the brakes stope and stop acting like some brilliance was taking place in one dugout and ineptitude rates premium another. That is not what happened. That is not what happened. Now, Aaron booed. Perfect. Now. As my boy Jeff told me my boy out in California, Jeff Brown, my baseball aficionado, my personal as well. Aficionado. Ambu should've visited demand should went out. They had a compensation with cease about there should calm down a little bit. One of the things that I was witnessing last night cici's a Baptist pitches were entirely too high. Sanchez wasn't insisting upon him, finding strike zone, getting lower and lower and lower and CCC bath, thick complain about the Pires all day every day. And I'm not saying that he does not have a point. I love c. but the reality is, is that his pitches were entirely too early on. And he put himself in a position to get smacked around. That's not the unpire that's him. They were too high. He needed them to be lower, and he wasn't catching his targets, right? He wasn't hitting targets, but take Uley on low and outside. He wasn't doing it. That's a problem. CC's about they're going about the empire because the pile was a disaster whereabout three times his calls had to be reversed at first base. Here's the SEC. They bring up CC's about the thirty eight years of aid cici's about the a world champion. CCC Sebastioa. What are the great Prentice we've seen. A major league baseball history lost his focus cici's about the guy rattled cici's. A bad deal was too preoccupied with on pyre that he lost focus to the batter's. And we can't forget that we can sit and talk that all we want to. We make too many damage stoops's for the athletes of tops. You lost focus. You lost discipline this, a safety about that walked in to the research because the rest is four fifty ERA in three starts against the Red Sox. This season. And you would think will you could center five and a third and it's four hundred thirty six three and a third innings. Against the best offense in baseball. This year, you would think that Arab Boone had a short lease. I read the article in the New York Post. Y'all should too. Outstanding on point column by day by Ken, David off, he was right on the money. You knew what about the troubles were coming into the series. You knew who you were going up against. You knew how they had their way with him for the most part. So if you wanna vilify Aaron booth to some degree, I guess you could make that argument. He did leave Severino in game three to long and replace them with Lance Lynn, who the hell cares about Lance Lynn. Cici's about is there. Why you gotta fleet or relate received relievers. David Dole's words not mabul right on point. We brag about the Yankees bullpen all the time. We brag about them all the time. Warranted to use them. Would you way. What was the purpose of that. Ambuhl did it anyway. He said each of CCC bath, the situations occurred to out, he decided to stick with him and what have you? Well, how did that work out for you? Workout. Second in you walk Benintendi. Steve Pearce laws a single to center field JD Martinez lost to sacrifice fly. Now, one time. Did Aaron Boone, have anybody woman up in the bullpen? Not one time. Now, one time. Now, me personally, let me say this. Laser, gentlemen. I like Ambuhl nice guy worked at ESPN. No, he knows his baseball. And I don't think he did an awful job. You didn't do an awful job when you went on hundred games. But last night was glaring to me from the standpoint that even though they didn't lose the game in the dugout, they lost it on the field. Damn, did I miss Joe Girardi. See, Joe Girardi was much maligned throughout the years too quick with the hook, constantly going making changes in the relying of making changes in the rotation pulling guys out sooner than later. Joe Girardi used all the assets available tool. God vilify. He didn't challenge about again, hit last year in the postseason cost, the gangs, the game. Sometimes stuck with God's too long a little bit too loyal. We get that. But for the most part, Joe Girardi was out there mixing and matching and trying to do something all the time. And if you're going to replace a manager that just took you within one game of a trip to the World Series because the Yankees lost the game, seven. AL had Houston last year dammit. You can't have these kind of problems. Just have. Just cam. But as is what happened, you point to that, but the season is over. So essentially we're sort of dissecting the New York Yankees and what the hell was their problem. Tell you what some of their problems are. Giancarlo stain visit three hundred million dollar man, four for eighteen really just four singles in this series against the Red Sox really. Oh, by the way Giancarlo Stanton, leaving your back on your shoulders in game one. Not even swinging at a pitch to strike out last night. You got to all it's the the ninth inning. And Kim throwing wild pitches, or you know, just just hit batters walking era judges with fall pitches and all of this other stuff. But you come up and these salivate at the mouth of the small because dammit, you strike outweigh napping swayed at dirt. That was your call STAN. That was John Carlos. Three hundred million dollar making it. Now when it comes. But it doesn't stop there. It also goes directly to Brian Cashman. You see, ladies gentlemen, I never trusted Jay. Never. He always seemed shaky to me from his days in Philadelphia. He always seemed shaky to me in the postseason. He just did not consistently awful, but moments that said to me, I can't trust this guy. And we saw he stunk up the joint. We saw how he stunk up to join game one. So you got that problem. Severino it consisted, we got that problem. And then after that. Since hap is a problem Severino as a problem that essentially ladies gentlemen, media rotation is a problem. We still had at work as right. We're going to start relievers and put them in early whatever. How what gives Yankees didn't work? Well, they can work for the Yankees either all is dancing and prancing around all of this other stuff. You know what makes me mad at Brian Cashman even though I think he's done a phenomenal job retooling, their farm system, having a right prospects get, you know, people, Torres and judges of the world and others Sanchez of the world got majors respect for Brian Cashman. But you know what ticks me off about Brian Cashman today. What really rakes nerves. The Houston Astros in the same conference, the American League, they showed you the way it's not like you haven't won championships before Brian Cashman. It's been a long time since two thousand nine, but it's not like you have a one before you know what it takes, and you see Verlinde and you see kaikal and you see them go out after winning a championship and they going gay, Gerry Cole, and they still have more. Right. And Boston's got sale. And even though David price thinks joining a postseason still got him and poor Selo. What the Yankees have Severino who can't be trusted. And now the conju a hat. You had an opportunity. I'm not saying you could have got Jacob degrom from the New York. Mets could've went all out. You could have exhausted every means every measure, throw prospect, get a as a frontline as like Jacob degrom. Do you know what that would have done for the Yankees. There's Brian Cashman do it? No. If there's one floor against Brian Cashman he has never gone out via trade or free agency and gotten an ace and ace there. We rely upon. Always middle a road, dude. It ends up over cheating or some past champion that was begun his prime, but ultimately comes back and they over cheap. But that's stud that ace that's out there like Houston got ver- Landa, the Bumgarner of the world. People like that. Cashman never get some. Maybe the word nevers too. Strong of the don't look that way. That's my issue. At the 'nother season Yankees home, no championship to speak of. I got welterweight champion the world, Tim Crawford coming on. Midway through our number one of the Stephen, you're right here on the ESPN radio. So before I do that, let me get to some phone on this right now. Let's go to. Let's go to Kevin. You live with even a on ESPN radio and ESPN news Kevin. In a long time, listener, a love the show. Thank you. I just I wanted to talk to you real quick and just say last week how Hewer literally begging for New York to have a winning team. I know. And you know, I gotta tell you I I was kind of laughing because you know twenty seven championships for the Yankees is kind of hard for for somebody like myself who's a die-hard Cup and to hear somebody back for champion. Let me tell you got twenty seven. No, no, no, no, no. How how I'm I'm forty years old. Okay. Well, I'm fifty. So listen up. Your young whippersnapper. Okay, I'm I'm saying that jokingly buddy. Here's the deal. Yankees have won World Series this millennium. Is bent the highest one of the highest payroll in all of baseball each and every year, the New York Yankees have won World Series appearance and win to show for it since two thousand and one eighteen years man. And all I'm saying to you is that it's not about the twenty seven championships. You know, you talk about Chicago Cubs fan or whatever, where you, if you are from the city, Chicago, at least you recently had the bulls. What I'm saying with the New York Yankees is that look, you gotta go out there and get some pitching and what I was talking about New York is that the Yankees are the only ones that win giants. Same winning jets ain't winning met Saint win. It don't get me started with the Nixon, the nets. That was my point Kevin. Well, and I and I absolutely hear you. I hear that you as and as an diehard New York sports fan, your, you know, I, I get. I get it because you know, after Jordan left. You know, I, it got really, really tough to Chicago fan, but you know, at least at least you have one thing to look forward to at least you're going to have the number one overall pick in the NFL draft. Good. Bye. Have a nice day. We don't know that to be true because I don't think the jets or the giants are going to be that offer to get the number one overall pick, they'll get a topic, but I don't think it'd be number one overall, let's go. To Iraq. Allow Stephen, what's up. Stephen loved the show was just curious how long it was going to take before. Yankees fan started talking about the possibility of going and getting the oab Steen. You know what? I don't think that's gonna happen. I don't think Brian Cashman deserves that. I think that when you consider the the shaky circumstances on the witch, the Yankees were in a few years back where their farm system was depleted. An obviously they will try to buy stars and you know, Brian Cashman had to convince Steinbrenner's to sort of modify their coacher bit. Let's not staedtler stop looking for that marquee star that you know that we gotta pay a bunch of money to. Let's look at something else. Let's look at it along the lines of, you know, building our farm system and getting some young studs to come in here. You end up with a Sanchez, a judge tourism guys like that. I think he's done a damn good job. I think where he's fallen short is a lack of focus on getting that frontline pitcher that ace to spearhead your lineup. I actually think regardless of Severino stuff and how good he is John, I got, I don't know how you feel about this. I actually think that's. Severino should be a number two starter. I don't think you should be. I don't think he's trustworthy enough to be a number one. I think that you know, when you think about, as, for example, can ask you this question Eric, real quick. It is several Reno in the same stratosphere, Linda. Do you think so? No, that's what I'm talking about. I'm saying you're the New York Yankees. You don't have that. You don't have the Kirscher concur, shorter, the Verlinden even Bumgarner postseason. You don't have that. Let's I'd settle for any Pettit. Lester yet about a less. I like Lester. Well, that's why brought up feel because feel pulls that trigger. Yes, DO pulls that trigger. That's right. But that's not enough a Cashman, a lose his job to THEO actually where the cubs right now they're home watching the postseason like the Yankees are and by the way, the cubs not only lost their wildcard game. They lost playing game the day before against Colorado. Walkie walk. So when I'm saying, let's take that in consideration. Well, the reason I brought it up because I remember the Hernandez trade Chapman trait, this sir, and the cubs gave up a lot for him. Got you. And I and I was just thinking, why didn't cash maybe learn from what THEO did with him. I got you. I got you. All I'm saying is better than most. We all know that, but that doesn't mean as justified to be firing somebody for THEO Epstein. When you look at the job that Brian Cashman is done disappointed on this day. I really am. I'm disappointed in Kashmir for two reasons. I'm disappointed in the frontline to absence of frontline pitching, you know. And you know, because I think a guy like the Graham everything should have been exhausted to get Jacob degrom outta gave up the house for Jacob degrom without question. I think that's point. Number one. Point number two. I'm of the mosit- and I like Amer Boone. I never felt Joe Giradi should have been going. I never felt that way. I truly truly feel that way, but I gotta go Terence Crawford. Reigning welterweight champion of the world fighting this Saturday Night.

Bene- Vitas he's twenty seven. No Vida is is he ain't Terence Crawford though? That's who's on a live with me right now. Arguably the best fighter in the world pound for pound either between him and Lomo Kinko the one and only Terence Crawford is here with yours, truly. Right now, what's going on Terrance t. c. how're you doing on I first of all, how you feeling you're ready for Saturday night. Let's get that out of the way I already for Saturday night. Order ready, feeling good ways. Good. Everything's good. I'll feel when strong already to go out there and display my town light any other time I step foot in a ring. Now, listen, I know that and we expect that from you. There's no question about that, but you alluded to talk when we were talking earlier on, television would tell me about Ben Evita's and how you and him have some history. Y'all don't like each other. Talk about that a little bit. What's the problem? Historically, what's up man, this guy his mouth. Coming after me for a long time now, and I'll bet duck in him and I don't want to sign a contract and I'm scared of him and. Oh, nice. And so why not get this out the way and shut this dude up? You know, I remember as a couple of guys at random mouth of, I remember correct that that kid Lundy was running his mouth a little bit. You had to do you had to do some damage to him? No question about it. I don't remember. Bell trial, ran his mouth. Postal looked like he was running his mouth a little bit of all the people that you beat up already because obviously you're undefeated fighter, you're the best you can sit at the best in the world right now. Thirty three and arguably the best of the world who's the guy that talked the most trash to you that you wanted to beat up the most of all the guys that you've beaten up this fall. Have to be, hey, Lenny and being Vida is I think they want to hang on was was crazy. Then we got into it and the press conference been Evita's. He's been trying to get under my skin, which nine it's going to not going to happen again talking a lot of reckless. But hey, it's the fire game and ready to go out there with talking to the WBZ champion of the world. One only Terence Crawford. He's right here with Steven and ESPN radio, ESPN news. Last time we saw you fight was June ninth. You beat up Geoff Hoon who had wanted to sit in with Manny Pacquiao. That was the reason that was the biggest reason why he was relevant and then you, you got in the ring and handed your business against him that you had been a junior welterweight fight at one forty at moved up to one forty, seven to fight this. How did you feel at one forty? Seven compared to how you felt at the lower weight class auto strong also. Also great. My power was there. My physicality was there. I feel as if I had more energy. Yeah, I just feel all around better at one forty, seven, then I bid at Ford. Now let me ask you this question. What about people that look at you? And obviously they had questions about whether or not you be able to take that power, what you and you certainly did that against horn. But the flip side is they might ask the question. It was horn that you were doing this against. It wasn't Keith Thurman. It wasn't Errol Spence. It wasn't Shawn porter. It wasn't even Danny Garcia. What do you say to folks out there that would say that about Terence Crawford at one? Forty, seven. Anything. You know when those happen, then they'll see if if my power carried up, if you watched him and pack Yao fight back out, couldn't do it. So that's that's a factor right there. The proved that you know, I must be some type of strong if pack Yao was bullied and pushed around, and then the war in a fire with with the same guy that I stopped. So, hey. Crawford right here. It was Stephen ESPN, radio, ESPN news. Who do you want the most? I know you're not looking past it and I'm not asking you in that fashion. I know you're gonna take your business seriously and you're gonna do everything you can handle Vitas the Saturday night in Omaha, Nebraska. I'm asking you your hometown by the way. I'm good luck to him, but I'm asking you who, who do you want most? Does it matter who you go against? Or do you have a preferred target in mind that you're aiming for as this ascension to the world? The way division continues. Carter, like I say, when you have to top people target you. So I'm not looking the target anybody, but other champions them knowing that I really want because I want to solidify myself as undisputed champion or the world, like I did in junior was away. So I want the biggest best price out there to make. I'm sure they can be made just a matter of time win. Bellavia tell us about this fight for those. Everybody knows about you. Everybody box. The game knows about your by beyond the boss game knows about you don't know that much about Jose. Bellavia junior talked to us about him at what kind of fighter. He is what you're going to have to deal with Saturday night. Box a little bit. You can bro try to counter punts here and there. He's tall rangy, but confiding. I fighters don't tend to fight me the same as they fought. They previous opponents. So a lot of people looking at him and he's strong punch hard in this man U's pack. Y'all sparring partner at a young age and all the pros. You didn't Spar coming up. My answer to that is you got sixteen glows acre, I don't care who he sparred on care who we worked with confide. Now. He's gonna have to fight me with eight ounces with no headgear on. Then we're gonna see how well you do. Have you fought against anybody with his height advantage. Oh, of course. John Molina was colored. EMMY host was taller. Name. Prescott was taller than me. Jeff horn was colored in me and Dongo was calling me. Yeah. Yeah. Jeff and looked at taller than you. But I was asking that question because I wanted to know, you know, just the similarities compared to what I expect you have to go to do you feel the need to win no matter what? Or do you need to win in spectacular fashion, this Saturday night? What are your thoughts about what you need to do? I'm always looking winners, spectacular fashion. That's my job is to go out there winnings fashion. So go to. So when I go to. Put a stamp on my victory. That is no question that who the winner of the fighters. Right here with Steve a. on ESPN radio and ESPN news before I let you get on outta here on another note. Floyd money may whether talk a few weeks ago about how he's gonna fight somebody like Manny pack. Yeah, and I got it mitt. I was very, very thankful. Neither of them were talking about getting in the ring with you because I'm not confident that that something wouldn't happen to them at this stage in points in their career. But as a guy that's climbing the chart is undefeated is already a champion looking for that big mega fight or what have you. What is it that you feel when you hear a guys even as -ccomplish this pack, yellow and may whether they've been in their careers where they're talking about fighting each other instead of somebody like that, wishing to get their hands on somebody like you, what are your thoughts. Well, my daughter on that is they are now right. They fought the best fights out there to fight. They fun the guys and they airing that they was posted fight and why not go out with a bang with each other. They around the same age. They fall before they got history. I don't know. I don't not just like I didn't not peck out for not taking the fight with me. I'd say he earned our right before all the fighters. Oughta dangerous fighters was out there too. That's real big. That's that's. That's real big you because a lot of fight is your position would want the money and will want the big fighting want the recognition, right. And as a result, if you had a guy like him voiding you, you'd probably call them out, but if I'm hearing you correctly, what you're saying is now you're not gonna do that because they paid their dues, they withstood the test the time. They've done this for a long time. It's nothing wrong with them at the latter parts of their career to say, I'm gonna void that young line and just go in this game and make some money and walk away from it in the best condition possibly can. Is that basically what you're saying? Correct? Correct. If you, if you look at history. I'm gonna go one day in the fight game, and there's gonna be some home. Green lying does does. It's in the get us out that need to put my name on his resume. We ban was calling for the pack, yell, fight, things thousand, what four eighteen thousand fifteen, and we couldn't get it. So we moved on, like we said before pack hours at the end of his career and my career sterile still moving forward. So I didn't feel as if it really would a been beneficial for him fighting, it would have been more beneficial for either fight him to get him on my resume. But for a fighter that for all the names that he followed, it really didn't matter to him whether he fought me or not. Here's a higher more that win heating and you still got respect for him because of that. I got it. I got it. Terence Cooper right here with Steven. He is ready to get on outta here. Man. Let me transition to this last question. I know you know your basketball. You like your best ball who you got winning. I mean who you got meeting in the finals. This upcoming season. Oh man. I don't know whoever whoever make it out of the win champions. That's all I'm gonna say what? What. So let me get this straight. Let's say, for example, a miracle happened and the Lakers or Houston. Okay. The Lakers are Houston. Knock off the Golden State Warriors. You trying to tell me you think they'd be Boston creek. Oh, Lord, I'm gonna have to talk to you. I mean, I wanted to greatest fighters in a world today. I got mad love for you, but this basketball stuff, you're not gonna have to have a conversation about this comes. Now, listen, you know, I got the Lakers going to the conference finals, right? You know, there's more favorite team, so I'll room for. I got them going to the conference finals and losing the Golden State, and I got Golden State meeting Boston in the finals, and I haven't decided who I'm picking yet to win it all, whoever wins the west, it's going to be your champion Malir that that you and we go ahead as competition, late bro. Good luck Saturday night. Not that I think you need it handle your business like you always do. All right. We'll talk no doubt the one and only terms Crawford WBZ champion when a best talk to pound for pound fighters on the planet earth ladies and gentlemen, he is the real deal. Trust me, catch him Saturday night on ESPN top, rank, boxing, delivering the goods Terence Crawford is the truth. It's the truth of to you. Trying to tell you right now. There's a reason why you. Wondering who could beat them or whatever the case would be. I'm looking for him and narrow sprint, Joe, you. That's what I keep Thurman. I don't know what's happened. You got married. You had an injury taking long enough for you to get healthy. I don't understand it.

REShow: Frank Grillo. Hour 3 (10-12-18)

"Rich Eisen on demand, your show your schedule, fifteen minutes after ball dot com. Check out the casts at richeisenshow dot com. Geico presents eyewitness interviews with inanimate objects. This is Belinda Collins live on the scene of a recent hailstorm here to describe the event of a ball bro. I was just hanging on the roof. When this gnarly storm starts dropping baseball sized hail. Shingles got beat up a few windows broken. It was savage digital, anything to help, bro. I was in survival mode. Your football can't help you in a hailstorm, but the guy go insurance agency can help you get covered for personal property damage, call gyco to see how a forcible homeowners insurance can be. Okay. Our number three of the rich Eisen show is on the air. Frank Grillo is here, Frank hasn't been on this show quite some time. It was on promoting season one of kingdom which is now no longer on audience. Unfortunate, I love that show a lot of great show. Giants fan, have five installment travel documentary series on Netflix called fight world. So he'll be joining us shortly here on the program in studio, Rod Woodson. That was the number twenty six bus running over number ten of the New York Giants. He does not think he li- manning is a hall of Famer. Do you in call them an elite quarterback or franchise quarterback? That's what he called not a franchise. Quarterback allies. Hall of fame candidacy is taken a big hit in the last couple of years. Well, in terms of his viability as a two thousand eighteen quarterback, it was certainly called into question last night. His performance certainly in light of Carson Wentz. Now that's what a twenty first century quarterback looks like a guy who can run around guys got a big arm guy who comes in for a team that needs a win on the road and transcends the team, which is what he did getting them on the board. If the ABA giants, the giants been able to hold the eagles to just three points after allies. Opening foray interception landed the defense with the backs against the wall right off the bat. On a short field had Carson Wentz not uncorked that third down across the grain across the body throw then who knows what happened in the first quarter last night. But instead Carson Wentz made the place certainly in the red zone. Certainly when they needed it and you lie did not. But in terms of viability of current, two thousand eighteen quarterback Rod Woodson thought he was on his last legs. Moments ago, Pat Shurmur talking today, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post to cover the New York Giants tweeting out. When asked if Kyle Leto who was taken in the mid rounds by the giants out of Richmond this year, in the draft quote, we're not talking about a quarterback change yet, said Pat Shurmur row Vaki auto of of the post then said as well. Pardon me of NY said after pressing Shurmur on law Letta will he come out and play some football at some point this season? If it continues to go downhill quote, we're not talking about a quarterback change yet. So that's twice Kimberly Jones quoting Pat Shurmur on the idea that the giants shouldn't have taken Barkley at number two. Overall, we heard that from week one this year, and I shut that down saying Barkley is a generational talent. He could be better than Zeke. And for net he could. Be better than girly. Yes, it's entirely possible. Could be Shurmur said the idea that saquon Barkley Barkley was a mistake. I don't see that. And I just told you, I believe in ally. So Shurmur quoting Dion. That's the latest with the with the New York Giants as for the Yankees. I mean, good Lord, Brian Cashman in Boone, had their season ending, press conference today a day before the Red Sox take on the Astros in the AL c. s that's how Chris Brockman kicks off. The news update brought to you by our friends at Honda. Rochman federal live report rock men with the new Honda. Odyssey is the perfect minivan for any family man with valuable magic slide seats and cabin watch. It's never been easier to keep the peace when your kids get a little too out of hand. So be sure to visit your local Honda dealer today. Crisco for please k. I haven't heard any of this Aaron Boone. I up talking about Luis Severino whether or not he kept him in game three, two on and maybe possibly tipping pitches. I think looking back at at the game, three was seventy where savvy I didn't feel like was on top of his game. And I think that's the one that I look back where I say, all right. I probably got greedy with sevi- in the fourth there with wanting to get him through the bottom of the order. And he came out and really struggled, obviously. Did you feel it with severing of tipping pitches was an issue either against the Red Sox or any of the time this year? I think it has happened at times. I think he's done a good job of correcting it, but I think it would pop up from time to time and is something that will will address even more so this winter in trying to eliminate. Any chance of that happening? What else? What else you got anything else they're working on finishing up these Brian Cashman. We'll get to that in a little heard. I heard that Cashman is this is great that he was talking about looking into relocation for Sonny, gray. Now that sounds very sopranos like. Relocation, Greg, you're not gonna see him. No more, Amy. He's going to be relocated. We do it. We do have Cashman talking about Didi gregorious. When we acquired Maradona he had a a partial tear in the the ligament that was as symptomatic. So you know, it seemed to based on his dialogue and the feeling he felt on the tweak there on that throw is where he pinpointed that was the finishing off of something that was a sleeping giant. I guess the got checked out yesterday by Dr went through the Mariah Zam and and it revealed that he needs Tommy John surgery. Unfortunately, on his throwing arm. Gasp. Let out in the room. All right. Next up who's going to replace Didi gregorius. I know you haven't. I know you haven't even had off season organizational meetings. I know players haven't even declared free agency yet, but there is an obvious name out there twenty six year old shortstop who will be on the free agent market and in Machado. Do you see yourself reaching outside of the organization to pet potentially fill that issue? We have. We're going to do what we always do. You know, season unfortunately is over. So now scheduling the pros Gatting meetings and preparing for those. We already got those scheduled and you know, sooner than we wanted to obviously, but we'll go through our process, you know, and evaluate the available free agent market pref amount and and then engage other clubs about what's available trade wise, you know, and then Wade it all of that information you know against. But we have internally, and this isn't regarding the DD circumstances as just regarding the land. Gape internally clearly, you know tourism. I can't even hear it anymore. I can't even listen anymore. I can't even listen anymore. I can't. Look Yankees. You're gonna have to pay Sanchez. They're gonna have to pay judge a meant, okay, they're going to have to pay Torres. One day, do not pay Manny Machado, three hundred million dollars to come and play a position that is not needed, starting pitching the guy who needs to relocate. We used a location of Sonny, gray in the realm of competent. If Sonny gray was the sunny gray that pitched in Oakland showed up in the in Yankee system and didn't turn into Jeff Weaver slash Kenny Rogers slash Ed Whitson rolled into one that guy had actually shown up from Oakland and the Yankees could have thrown him in game one instead of j. hat or in game two or in game. Three Tanaka could have been moved around. That's the guy you need to. That's what you need to do. Get your starting pitching settled. That's it because the kids that you have with the bats are growing up and they're all grown up and they're grown up Aaron Hicks, a great acquisition by Cashman. Those guys do not spend three hundred million dollars, Manny Machado to fill a spot that you do not need. The already got three hundred million dollar guy who God forbid turns into the albatross that we saw in the American League divisional series. We need to see a little bit more than Jesse Barfield. Plus. Giancarlo Stanton when the chips are on the October line. Agreed. You know, and by the way Cashman's not gonna talk about, okay. Yeah, there's a guy who's playing the NLD and see us tonight under contract and let me talk about him. But do not do it, don't don't want don't need him. Certainly if he's going to be as good as the last Oriole we got. The man cherry reliever. Zach Britain, where was that guy? Where's the guy who saved? Ninety saves in a row? Where is that guy. The guy who gave up the home run Vasquez. That was the difference maker in the AL the game four Yankees could've tied it on the Sanchez sacked, fly that damn near left the yard on. I'm going to go down. This is, you know if you're gonna play Dolan sound right now I'm walking out the door. You don't have any Mike out. Stop it. I wanna feel like patriots a huge games week, patriots chiefs for first place, and they've have home field advantage join element and Tom Brady when they play in the same game against AFC opponents at home. Thirty six, no talking about Jewish element told reporters yesterday about Josh Gordon who had a touchdown. Last week, dude works hard, great teammate. I think you can be a really big piece for us. He loves football, you can tell, and here's the big part for me, he knows his stuff. It's getting more and more fun and the more and more he knows Josh Gordon couldn't do anything anywhere else in then shows up. Congratulations making the Pro Bowl, the winner of the two thousand of the two thousand eighteen winner of the Rex Burkhead award goes to. Josh Gordon, I'll say, winner of the two thousand eighteen Antoine Smith award goes to Coronel. Winter of Corey Dillon won that award one year. He did. Uh-huh. Team struggling is Denver Broncos. They've lost three in a row here. Von Miller who has hasn't had a sack and three games kind of putting it on himself saying, just gotta get out there and something I haven't been doing in the last few weeks. I haven't been playing run. I haven't been rushing the passer. I gotta fix that. And so hopefully they got a huge game home ram against. In the snow in dominated sue calling out the run game as well for the the run defense that got gashed last week. Yeah, in Seattle. Just play this out here there at Arran next week, short week, Thursday night football there at Kansas City home for Houston, by at chargers home for Pittsburgh at Cincinnati at San Francisco, they finish up with a Saturday game home for Cleveland at Oakland, then chargers. Could we talking about a top five overall draft choice? Tender, yes. If keenum doesn't pull it together. We're seeing again, but we see Chad Kelly at any point this season. Oh, you're putting this on keenum. Look, his numbers Lee, please look up there. The defense has been terrible. I mean, they got Burt routinely last week against the jets. Look up case keenum's. Now it's a quarterback driven league. That's what we're talking about. Pressure's on for him, and he had had a touchdown since week one before he connected last week. All went last four weeks. Four weeks without a touchdown by your quarterback in the NFL in two thousand eighteen tell me how that tastes to use the shack phrase. What else? It's being a quarterback by the way, just you got me fired up at home now. Chato before the season even. And I told you the dodgers aren't even going to let him walk away. Don't know about that. I told you that, and I still firmly believe it. They're going to have to figure out how Cory Seager with is reconstructed arm can throw from second. That's how good he might be over the again. There's seven to fourteen games left in the dodgers season, potentially. Okay. Let's just say it's fourteen games left and they have a parade here because Machado had a World Series MVP performance. They're gonna, let them walk to the Yankees because Cory is coming back. What do you do brought in this town wishy rampaging Seger. What do you do with Seger play second? Imagine it would. Would he not be able to function as a human being playing second base. What else is saying as being a quarterback, Frank, Grillo base Bahia quarterbacks, Monday night, Green Bay and San Francisco air modules talking about his knee said he suffered a setback last week at the beginning of last week. He was dragged down awkwardly on the sideline in one shot. And that's probably where it took place has been working with the rehab group hopes to get in some practices over the weekend, but talking about possibly wearing a bigger bulkier, knee brace on that knee said, he hopes not the goals where the same Bracy where last week. But we'll see. It's a big question Markle's he's going to be limited. He's not going to be as mobile as he is on Monday, but the playing San Francisco, they're ten point favorite, so he shouldn't have to do to Monday night football. So you know, I know that this is not the way that tests in wit and book and trip are going to try and want it to happen. If but Green Bay would they love to lay it on thick on San Francisco, then then have to Sean Kaiser time on ESPN with a buy week, right behind it and get Rodgers out of that bulky brace as fast as they can. Yeah, looks like it's going to be an issue this week though, for sure. You mentioned Jimmy Butler. Obviously not a Milwaukee as they prepared for the final NBA preseason game. This is my favorite part top Ditto told reporters after morning, shoot around today that Butler remained in Minneapolis quote to work on his conditioning really work on his condition. You know what you know? Why? Because it. Will really tire you out when you are verbally punking the franchise player working on his? Yeah. When you're when you are verbally punking Karl Anthony towns, you can. You can get a little winded as great. I love it. The situations fluid is he said, yeah, two more things real quick little UFC two Twenty-nine out Conor McGregor and could be will be Tempur temporarily suspended on Monday according to the Nevada Athletic Commission executive director, there will be a hearing on October twenty four th they'll be hearing to vote on whether those two will be indefinitely, suspended, pending results of the Commission's investigation.

Welcome back to the rich Eisen show not just to the radio and television audience, but this man to my right who was few years ago promoting kingdom. That was right here on audience. What a great show that was also enjoy his work in the purge film series. And now you can check him out and fight world as he is the host of a five part instalment travel documents, documentary series at streaming right now on Netflix, good to see you Frank Grillo. How are you? Good. Yeah, yeah, still here. Now you just said that was we went to break you think cub Eve's done with the? I think if it's it's a very delicate situation. You know, he's, he's, he's a hero where he comes from and and a lot of people support him in a lot of people think he's a hero for beating the crap out economy Gregor tall. He just didn't beat him up. I mean, he humiliated him. You know that that jaw crank was shouldn't happen to a professional fighter, right? Yeah. And listen, everyone knew the level of talent of Khabib and. He, he proved it if he if he would've stayed in the cage man, you know, just kind of, yeah, you know, but and you definitely know this having been exposed to the world through kingdom and learning about mixed martial arts and being immersed in that world as you were as an actor, it's difficult to say, get in the mindset yet to get in the octagon. Yeah. Get in the mindset to do to another human being or be prepared to have that done to you. Yeah. And then when the bell goes off, just shake hands and you know, and come back to society and having travelled around so much around the world into understand how serious someone like bead takes his religion, his family, you know where he's from and the way McGregor kind of you know you, you poke the bear enough and you know it's visceral emotional moment and you lose it. It was saying backstage, it's like hockey. I mean, what's the difference? You know that's equally is a legal to have a a Malay on what I think as you pointed out though, the fact that hot defense always into the view these into the general. He was like a silver back the way he'd left off of the apron into this, like he's still in the mindset of being in the octagon to that. He not as if he's like, okay, I'm now amount Khabib person again, let me offense. Right. So he's in raged. Yeah. And so you know, I joked before like, can we just get past all this stuff? Like the stuff being the Athletic Commission needing to figure out what's going on the you have seen eating, figure out the liability all of that stuff. Right. And as you said, if he had only stayed in in the cage, then he would not have all of these legal issues or visa issues. Right. Hanging over him, right. It's a problem. It's it's going to be a big problem. I don't know that you'll ever see them fight again. I don't know that we should. I mean, he really made a point of kinda McGregor saying, I'm just too good. He's a far superior fighter far superior. Well, based, again, on on on on being part of the world as you as you were for kingdom. What? What did you learn of what somebody goes through to get in that. Mindset to be in that octagon over, like even me who I train every day on the gym everyday a boxer day to all kinds of great stuff. I don't know when I when I would travel around with guys in Thailand book, how who's the greatest Moines type fighter? That's that's what fascinated me. That's why I wanted to do the shows like I try to understand what could put a person man or woman into this frame of mind where you are willing to risk everything, fight world your and just fighters like, you know what makes them do this. It's not money because most of them don't make a lot of money. So it's something it goes against. Almost Jim nature to want to do that. You know, it's, what do you think? Could you put your finger? I think I think these people are born with with just different DNA than than most people into it really hurts to fight not just to get in there leading up to that, the amount of training, the amount of knowledge that you. Need to to to have. It's it's remarkable. And by the way, it's not unlike when I when you she warriors battle. Navy seals or special ops guys, you know, the training that takes the risk that they're willing to put their lives in. It's very different human being. And how can you put that in the New York? Yankees when accounts against what's the hell? New York Yankees. I can't take it anymore. I, the giants, the Yankees, tired of giants. I don't know if you're able to catch any of the game last night or a little bit or Dun Dun Dun Dun. Maybe. I'm now I don't know a Dallas cowboy fan, all my God, Frank real, not let you back home back home. You know what rich is in this is my home, your Los Angeles, California. Okay. So now you're going to be a LeBron guy. Is that what you're saying? Emily Brown, I'm always been LeBron I think one of the greatest athletes of all time. Agreed. Yeah, I agree. Not be LeBron guy, Chris. I like watching LeBron play, but he makes it hard sometimes. Oh, he's such Besson. He is not about sports, which I don't maybe you do. I don't know. This man to watch him do not doubting that. Media day and the first practice and he walked past, wow, I, it had been a couple years since I was in, you know, in his presence was in the same room, not on watching him play, like actually on the same ground level to him. He is bigger than I Ramon iced up. I couldn't even imagine shoulders for day out. Imagine if he wanted to play tight end, what would happen if you anything he can be president? Well, we'll find out one day. Won't we in this day and age. You never know Frank Grillo here on the rich Eisen show so fight world. How did this come about? I mean, because your your family, man, you're an actor. What made you want to travel the world and start learning about a warriors and fighting a couple of things alerts. Couple of things I love Anthony, bourdain. I, it's all I used to watch was Anthony danger. So that was kind of the Genesis, the idea, and throughout my career, I've traveled around the world. Wherever I went, there was a gym and I'd go to the gym and it wasn't the people outside the gym. It was the the guys I learned to fight with wherever I was kinda taught me the culture of the place for two weeks for a week, whatever it wasn't. I, there's a through line here. There's a brotherhood here and maybe we could do what boarding does only instead of embedding myself in food culture. I, I didn't bed myself. I culture and Netflix love the idea. And the next thing you know on an airplane. Next thing, you know you're on airplane, just like that. Okay. And there's a start bench cut that we like to do here on the rich Eisen show, which is a game where I give you three choices. Okay. You have to start one. You have to bench one and cut one. Okay. Okay. So that's the way we go here bench cut. Start bench to sit down and be quiet or cut. So I one up for Frank Rillo here for your series. You travel the world again to learn about the different fighting styles, which country did you enjoy most Israel, Thailand or me on mar to start one. You have to bench one start Israel. Okay. Bench Thailand cut me and more. Yeah, is it has to do with just, you know, the whole tight-fistedness. It's. Trouble. No taking. This is tough, but it's politically what was going on when I was there, it was. It was upsetting off putting and and subsequently what I learned about Israel was so surprisingly uplifting and Thailand fall somewhere in the middle. No kidding. Yeah. Which which food did you like the most? The food? Yeah. When you were there in Israel, you know, just anywhere Israel's food was amazing. The HAMAs and all everything's very fresh Thailand's food was was also my favorite. I loved it. I've been to Thailand many times me and my it is it is maybe it's the British colonized the place it was Burma. I don't know how many yelp reviews there are of the places in me on marmot yelps. There are no the last time you ate fast food. Like literally, when was the last time you ate fast. I don't remember. Come on now. I don't eat. I don't eat fast pizza. What about?

And of course supporting now back to the show as envoy Gavin loved playing football. He lived and breathed. It wanted to go when he'd spent hours upon hours just practicing his touchdown dances at one day. Well, getting fitted for bifocals. He realized he was never much good at throwing or running or catching, nor even kicking. Yeah, Gavin's chances of playing football. We're looking like fourth and long very long, but he did hear how DIKO could save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved. Then he did kind of touchdowns at least he was still good at that. Welcome back to the rich Eisen show. I had Rod Woodson on an hour number two, and I said, I did the most an NFL total access when I did that show with him. And this is one of my favorite players that I got to meet through covering the NFL from two thousand three on because he was right in the middle of a stellar hall fame career when the NFL network came on the air and on. Tonight's NFL network air at eight eastern time is mossy television, Brian Dawkins football life. Brian Dawkins here on the rich Eisen show. How are you pro football hall of Famer, Brian Dawkins. Bliss rich doing. I'm doing fine if you've seen the peace yet if you see in the hour. I'm not saying that so as everybody else sees firsthand. Okay. You'll be seeing it as well. I mean, what? What is your recollections of the hall of fame weekend been now? Just a couple of months removed from Brian, your. Your speech was quite something else to say, the least. It was. It was from a hard one hundred percent from heart and just the beginning of things that going to happen going forward. I've already started some of the things that I'm doing. I've been doing better man, betterman challenges, better man conference. So like to be able to have that experience to go down to the all the thing to to see all those the legends and and to experience that and have experience I've had with with the eagles fans with the Broncos fans and to really be able to to to allow them to see inside of me. And that's what I tried to do on stage. I try to be transparent as possible to able to bless people to help people going through some of the things that they may be going through. So that's, you know, in a quick synopsis that's kind of with that hall of fame, what's for me then do you think are you prepared or do you know? Tonight's football, I is going to include part of your internal mental struggles at all Brian. It will because that's something that I made sure that we talked about because I. Think it's extremely important to have those conversations. Let let people know that. You know, this is not. They're not the only ones going through what they're going, and you know that it's like I said, in my speech, there is hope on the other side is hope is hoping, and you know to get caught up where you aren't to remain where you are out of never been able to see the man that I am today had I got caught up an stay where I was in those times of of of displeasure and pain. Now when I was interviewing you and in those years of consecutive pro bowls and obviously McNabb on offense and read and all those years where you were contenders for the Super Bowl made it one year you were struggling with happiness at that time, not necessarily. So that's the thing about it's not a continuous. Thanks. I always say it's, it's, it's something that can creep up and come and go. And that's, that's one thing that thing we, we throw terms around to loosely. No, the president and. Like, I think, you know, sometimes it's just going through some some turbulence and your life. Sometimes it's just a whole bunch of stuff at the same time and you haven't, you know, some adverse reaction just for motions are concerned, I think just throw the terms around too loosely, so that when someone is actually going through something that is very substantial, I think that it gets kinda lost into everything. So going through some of the things that I went through in the beginning of my career is what I really tried to focus on in my speech because that is where a lot of pressure was upon what a lot of things I didn't have the answers I didn't have the into after I didn't have the spiritual aptitude to deal with the thing that I that that was coming towards me. So there's a lot of negativity. There's a lot of things that were happening chemical reactions in my head that was actually actually happened as well. That what a lot of negativity to my mind, a lot of thoughts. My mind, a lot of a lot of things in my mind that that that caused those those thoughts come up those suggestions even for myself to do specific things to myself. Like I said, I don't like that's got continuous. That's not every moment of the day type of thing. I wanted to make sure focus on that part of my life, but I also know that going forward in my life that. That is something that is always there is always in the back corners, waiting for an opportunity to give me those negative thoughts. That's why for me, I specifically in my life, disciplined individual specific aims about life now that help for you know a lot of those things that would try to even creep back into my thoughts, football life with Brian Dawkins tonight on NFL network at eight eastern time could not be more deserving recipient of a football life as well as a pro football hall of fame acceptance and enshrinement. Brian Dawkins here on the rich Eisen show. Would you think of the eagles last night Brian? Would you think of that one? Yeah, they got the plan, the plan a game, like there's opposed to play with chip playing with an age, and you saw that offense and defensively, opposites always gonna be something that you lied to six and they start hurting themselves. I think in the last in their losses, they had a whole bunch of self-inflicted wolf. So to speak a lot of all size lot of holding to put themselves. Behind the sticks, all fence, all staying on the field. These x. with pass interference, call us up like that giving up a place. So those are the things that they were hurting themselves with a little bit in those games. And I think last night you really saw them, hopefully put a lot of those things too bad and hopefully they'll begin to play system there. I think. Where do you think they get that that grit from? Do you think it's Wentz being able to play the way that he is the play calling from the coach, the mindset from from who? Where do you think the grit can comes from in Philadelphia. The grid, obviously, you know, use your quarterback, having him back at the hell. You know is. There's a huge plus obviously, because you know, at one point, he was the MVP of the National Football League last year. That's that's just beyond with have him back in the helm doing what he does the way he's able to do that. You know, excise the lot of you physically watching him on the football. You're doing it the way that he does escaping and running up still like him to get that slide quicker and stop picking those hits. But that's another conversation. But I personally love the fact that they lost early and I honestly love the fact that they lost a couple of games in a row because that really it really lets you know what you have really let you know what you need to work on. Now you really can have tough conversations. You really can call cats to the carpeting and really talk about some stuff. And then you see team you have is a lot of anger point. And if it is, you need to take care of it. And leaders need to step up to have the conversations they need to have is not not calling people out sometimes about sometimes combined to decide and let. The no, hey, this is how we're going to have to fix that. We're doing what you're doing is not helping. So I like the fact that they lost one crazy. I know that's what's coming up over soup old and not knowing what is what it feels like to to try to Finn. I like the fact that they lost early games that in get blown out there for the most part, it's things that they could have done to actually win those games. They actually lost a couple of games. I believe they should have won. But at the same time once again, now you really can hold cats, you know to to to a higher standard because you're losing and you can talk about difficult things that you probably couldn't talk about when you lose even when you win. Well, there's a lot of difficult things that need to be talked about in New York. Now after what? The eagles did last night, certainly with ally manning somebody who was playing in the secondary Philadelphia when ally first arrived in New York, and you watched him send it to his first Super Bowl victory season in seven. You played them twice a year. Now, seeing him at the very end. Do you think he is. At the end. Do you think it's over for you lie Brian Dawkins. I don't think is like overnight. Just close the castle. Do I think if you look at at you look at when he li- had success and documented, he had the Texan. He was able to step into his throws and when he does not if you can't step it, his throws. He doesn't feel that comfort is is do tend to come down and he begins to bail out of the back pocket or throw his back foot, lean back away from his throws because he doesn't trust protection in front of them. And so that's, you know, that's been on the giant. They have not shoot that up that offense of lineup for loan. You have, you know, to me, it's going to be all pro bag room soon. And the back view, you know, being able to run the ball and kissed it baller the back is they have a tremendous weapon there, but until they should that lineup that have give ally the chance to step into roles and really feel comfortable in the pocket, then you won't see you won't see the guy that that you know that that you know when those people's, but he got. Into some some some comfort in those runs that he was beginning to, you know, to move the offense to move the ball, and you can see a lot of that had to with the tacit until they protect that do. It's just as other events, and I got about ninety seconds left here for guy who used to put on that breath, right, and transform himself, you called yourself the idiot man. When you put the breathe right on in Philadelphia, what advice would you give to Dell about playing under control. You got the right way. I, I love the energy. I love all this things really do the fact past has you have to the right way and can't be in such a way that you're hurting your ball club. When you start having having the media going to your teammates acts, the accident about what you're doing. You're becoming a distraction to the team as much as you love the game. What is I love the fact that you have emotions for you have to learn to channel in the right way to utilize it in the right way and not have it that you never had the coast half day question. You have to answer questions. I barley that they're gonna be. Contains the ask him questions about what they think about Dale and what he's doing. Now, they'll sitting not the case use that energy that you have right way and the national team. Hey, Brian, it was awesome. Having a front row seat, fear enshrinement after having watched you played in become the men that you are and be the man that you are first member of Clemson foot. Ball in the pro football fame representing the eagles and now tonight on a football life, I can't wait to see it. Congrats on everything going on with you still can't believe it. I still can't believe this small look and say from Jacksonville, Florida had the to now have see himself in football. I thought that that was for for big time. It's and you know, to see myself on that stage excuse on that screen tonight. It's my family. My friends you interview talking about me is absolute messy. It's absolute blessed. You deserve it. Let's chat again soon, Brian. Thanks, the costal. You're you. Got it. That's Brian doc. It's football, Brian Dawkins tonight on the NFL network. That's guy knows what it's like to play in the northeast. That's what it used to call himself. The idiot man. He'd put on that breath, right?

Episode 66: Big Maple Meets Big Apple

"The. Todd as five ago, the body love these Aaron Boone the leader this person out of the. These. The first. Portrait roy? What's up? What's happening? Welcome into another dish of the short porch a special offseason traded ishin of the short porch. I'm your host hubs the barstool Sudi does have first time at a longtime. Tommy, smokes Majko's. What's happening? They've got. What's up? I am. I'm having a crisis right now. He really down Instagram story. I my full behind the scenes video is out threats. Fifteen second preview on my Instagram store with swipe up I had it done. But interim was down like all morning. So it was never uploading. And how put a million different times one of the ones that I applauded forgot without the link. And right now, I'm uploading one. And I think I forgot catch link again. But I'm not sure because it's taking forever to go. It is. I want one question. Yes. Are you gonna cry? I just gonna keep growling and just growling before I don't know if you realize like video recording. But that was bad. Well, the reason you tuning in the reason we're doing the special podcast a day after we just there last one we've been a trade the cash cod Brian Cashman, the dark Lord at his finest goes and gets a starting pitcher. We need a starting pitcher. When you multiple starting pitchers. We got one James Paxton Seattle. Mariners big maple the pacman come into the Big Apple. It's a great nickname. The house is all time. We change Paxton. He's pretty fucking good. There's some pros and cons of this. A big comma gateway Justice Sheffield is our number one prospect, we had Sheffield's podcast. We are the only players should have been on this podcast, Josh Rogers, and just Sheffield have both been traded. That's not great. We're kind of in the works of getting void on this podcast. I'm not sure if that's a great idea for gonna have people avoid coming on like the plague. Yeah, we're we're pretty close. We're gonna work to have Ryan Ruko in like a couple of weeks. I mean is he just going to get fire from? Yes after coming all time. Maybe that would be the real curse. But James Paxton is big time. He has a potential to be a true as people who are disputing that. The numbers back that up without a doubt. He's very cheap to the payroll. He's the perfect wet dream guy that come on the team with perfect wet dream guys a huge in terms of staying into luxury tax. Oh, yeah. I guess let me finish the sentence. Yeah. Uber would be up there to write him in cl-. Yeah. Like those guys he made four million dollars a year. So he's on arbitration next two years of free twenty twenty one. Yeah, he'll get probably make ten this year, but Justice Sheffield departing. I almost think this is more of a testament to not that paxon's the bigger get. But that's chef there's a problem with Sheffield. And I and we're not here to trash I feel at all. The best. I literally route every time is out there. I just think the organization gave up on him with control issues and how they legitimately never improved. We came up his shorts. It was. I think it was the biggest red flag on September. First when his name just wasn't there as a call up, and he came back came up a little later. But the fact that like he wasn't ready by September first date entrust this. They his stuff is all time. And I love the whole, you know, he's kind of stroke. He's a lefty Stroman the fact that he's short, you know, people can't him out for that. But he's Deepak law. Punt packs a big punch in in his small body. But I wish the best it's very clear control issues Cashman, and the analytic department did not agree with, you know, those and they didn't want to didn't want to wait long enough to see it come. It's that like they may think that just the Sheffield might develop into a good pitcher. But he's he's not going to be that within the next. We're looking right right now the he's are in win. Now Mody went quickly from a quota. Rebuild to let's win a World Series every single year mode. James Paxton is basically he's what just the Sheffield could. Yeah. But he's that now. So I don't mind. I don't think I am. So on the trade, but it's not because we traded Justice Sheffield like I think just the Sheffield was kind of a necessary piece to move for starting pitcher because just Sheffield is a guy who could become a very good starting pitcher one day. The inky is need a very good starting pitcher today. So I don't mind including Sheffield in the deal. All the other two guys. Not big names. I know twats twenty two prospect of things that we were going to lose Wanson right to be put on the forty man roster almost immediately. I think it was almost hit a day or to be put on it. Otherwise, they're gonna lose him to the rule five draft. And they just didn't want that wasn't. It's better. Is it Dylan hate till Tate type thing they because they were gonna lose him. Anyway. So it's really a one for one when it come. Looking at this. It's not a big call. I just would prefer trading Sheffield for another pitcher. I look I'm I'm torn on James Paxton, but he could be great. He could be but he's to a degree. A half a question Mark is that fair to say he's Pouvaana ask it's von so. So obviously, the biggest all his numbers and his starts an emerald. He's healthy. Top Blake ten to fifteen pitcher in baseball. That's how good we're talking here. The leader through no hitter sixteen strikeout game this year had two hundred two hundred plus strikeouts. And only one hundred sixty innings. Those numbers are great doesn't walk anybody. So he's not going to nibble he attacks you. He's got a fastball that goes up to ninety nine. He's he's big time. And he's a lefty you wanna sack as many left. He's in that Yankee Stadium as you can because you know, hurting threat socks a little, but it did. But in general like you want as many left in that ballpark. It's going to help the most the obvious downside is that he's injury prone. And it's happened really his whole now there's a good side to it. He's never had Tommy John. He's never had shoulder issues. It's all just weird straight. So I got a list here. He's had a bad. Lot stream. He's had a bed finger tendon strain. There's been a bruised. Elbow of verse forum. A strain for him, strain, peck, lower back, inflammation, all that shit. It's shit. A little bit is like he's had all that is he do for an arm injury. Or is it just was it just like a weird string of flukes because he did have a hundred sixteen this year. That's not great. But it's the most he's pitched in a while and remember reading, yes, he changed something up his diet or anything. He did get injured less did get injured. It's very concerning that the fee is very high risk higher award trade, the high risk is that Justice Sheffield d comes this guy. We, you know, we thought we were trading for when we got Andrew Miller and all those people, but the downside, and obviously if he packing it's her the downside is that thing about the bright side. Think about all the prospects. Cashman is traded recently. Can you think of one that really like got us? No one's ever a superstar. No one Dustin Fowler's it like and he hasn't done anything. Really? He's he's been serviceable. Billy mckanie hit a couple homers. Like, can you think in Iraq? I really can't think anyone we treat it away. That is really like turn into at least recently in recent memory. Solarte's? He's at least an everyday player now. That's it. But he's been on a couple teams in my he's not. I mean, he's not like a superstar by any means. One include him short. Yeah. I'm drawn a blank can't. Yeah. So I trust Cashman that he knows. Someone from the bullpen. Some of the became a bull. Really good. Mark Milan-San ended up being pretty maybe Mark. Whatever cash. Mark mouland. When he knows I trust Cashman to know when he went to let these prospects coat just off his his his track record. Right. So obviously love Justin. I'm going to refer him and Seattle one hundred percent just like I refer Josh Rogers in Baltimore. But it's, you know, Cashman set if Cashman doesn't trust it, and maybe it was gonna take too long to get him where he needs to be. Maybe he's just going to max out as reliever in his career that could very will happen people projected that because he's more of a to whatever. But the whole Paxton thing the upside is that the free agent market was thin. We knew that coming the top guy was Patrick Corbin near Dallas kaikal. And then it's really drops off from there. It's it's not ideal for the Yankees to be this offseason with this much money to spend in having not the best names out there. Then you're looking at the trade market. How much does the Madison Bumgarner costs you probably a fuck ton? How much Corey kluber toss you probably fucked and he still on the table kluber. I think would now just you have to send her down and do too harsh Sheffield package is off the table. Obvious think Cleveland wanted Sheffield back. I think they hadn't him. So I see that happen too often to bring guy. I I I don't think they knew what they were getting they knew what they had in Sheffield, and they traded that guy away already. So they weren't trying to I don't think they wanna do that. I will say fuck I just totally lost my train of thought. Oh that the trade market. If you had to pick a guy who had the highest potential who would cost the least. Yeah. It's it's packed at one hundred percent because his stuff his little there's a fan graphs charts that tweet it out of his percentiles from twenty. Sixteen in two thousand eighteen and the numbers, you know, V low era a v exit stripe strike percents k percentage walked percentage all the shit. He's in the ninety five percentile, basically, I saw someone say like if you extrapolate some of his numbers till like six hundred innings or something for the past three the fourth highest war pitcher in baseball something along those lines can stay healthy. This is gold, which is the inky need another if in their rotation dots said, you kind of had to take the gamble with how the market you have to the rotations. You have to take a gamble, and you know, like Patrick Corbin being your top guy. You're going to get the offseason is not going to cut it. Yeah. And there's I mean, they still might get Gordon. He wants six years apparently. And they wanna give a four on four and the maybe settle in the middle. Maybe go to five, but he wants six that's the thing though is signing Corbin or even a half is then you're three lefties. I'm also saying it your chance have three lefties. That's why won't kluber to kind of be the right? That's one hundred percent. But I just think it's gonna be tough to. I think we both have agreed that there are going to get to starting pitchers one via treat in one via free agents. Yes. So the trade, right. So I mean, I think horrible. They've talked about. I think I think you've all these is a classic. When we got Chapman. And how the cubs blood Chapman's arm in October. And he kinda like had a shitty Chapman for a little bit or came back. But I just fear that you've all these are also he's just he's a red sock. Like, he. Phases so easily. Yeah, we'll say it's very nice that the Astros apparently could have had Paxton if the gave the number one prospect chose not to which kind of mirrors the Garrett Cole situation of last year where we were in that boat. And we didn't want to give up her certain guys and the Astros did. So may you know, Cashman's kind of hoping for that too? He went he he decided fuck like, let's Banda are probably last year for core. Frazier was like one guy, but I feel like they wanted to end or two and that was the first one Glebe which ever was. But I do like the move. And I kind of caught me surprise because it's it was November nineteenth. I mean. It's like I didn't think we're going to get anything till dissemble. It was clear they wanted to address it quick. Yeah. But overall, I'm and Jared cross will tweet like, oh, the Red Sox killed him less ship, blah, blah, blah. That's not true. I mean, his our as against them a bad start last year, but his career four starts and like a two to four twenty two the thing. I really like about James Paxton, he doesn't walk anybody. He has walk anybody. He he's like in tops in baseball instructor in strikeout-to-walk ratio last year two hundred eight strikeouts. Just forty two walks at his phenomenal numbers. You want that ratio? Is you don't want anyone Nivola? That's almost that's a five to one issue. That's like unheard of Kersey whenever you're four pitch like in high school and shit. You aim for two to one. Oh, I never all our get hit. I wouldn't walk. Okay. I put over the plate. Let them head fielders. Make a play pitcher. I was a lot of Delon now debt like the fact I really wouldn't get hit hard, but walk shit. Oh, fucking walks. I tell you Greg Maddux. I love walking off guy. Dad would freak out. I remember one time. I was I came in from centerfield like someone loaded the bases with like, nobody out and I came in and like relief. And I remember the way running in from centerfield like in my head. I was like playing enter the San man dots. How it felt just because like usually, you know, when you pitch your coming out from the dugout or something the way, I was running in feel and I was like so pumped up first pitch at someone. I knew that. There was going to go one or two one three ways you gave up a grand slam. You tripped and fell the L few bound. Were you hit some of this? That's awesome. But overall, I I like to trade I people I was a little hesitant at first. And you have to be with those injury concerns, but he's never had anything crazy series selling. He's had Tommy John like that. He hasn't. Yeah. At this almost prefer for guy has had it because it's like you get out of the way. But when you have string of injuries I liked homage on the not be one of those. I'd like fair it's just it's bumps in whatever three hundred sixteen last year. It's not ideal. But if we can get that up to one eighty five two hundred that we that's unbelievable. He's cheap Pranab for two years of free agent twenty twenty one and he slides right up there. And listen, we get all he want. The next year is lost. Unless we Luis Severino. Returns to form the key to office. Who do you think the opening day starters sevi- still savvy or someone on the team right now? I mean, they go get kluber. Then I think that would be the only guy that can I don't think Paxton is going to. Either. I don't think they want to put the pressure on pure opening day guy. He's done number two. I think he's to over Tanaka. That's a good three. That is a good Severino pitches to his capabilities, Severino Severino. Paxton Tanaka is a good one. I agree. And then you throw in who's your fourth guy. Patrick Corbin be pretty fucking good fourth guy. Yeah. Still again, the Fs that worry me, but I guess degree every pitcher. Life is a big if who knows if like we'll be back here for the next podcast. Come that helps. It was. I don't know how much we can talk. Jay's Paxton PA. I think we kinda exhausted that but real quick, you know, the city of for too long. We're getting here do do a little something here. But morosi tweeted out today that we're back in on Harper. We've had discussions it's unrealistic. But like it's being talked about us in him at first base. That's fucking cool. I I tell Frankie's like I can't I can't take this shit one day. We're out in the one day. We're all Machado and that's the season. That's why I like to I like, my brain just going eighteen different actions. I'm just going to be so upset if like after all this just blue ball. We don't get either of them like big is free hit the market in forever. I will say making a move on November nineteenth like that cash worth thanksgiving show up with Cashman's like just just got his feet up on his fucking chair right now everyone's home for thanksgiving, Cashman's, not going home early Cashman's Cashman's on the phone. He's calling GM like cast. It's like six thirty on thanksgiving. I'm eating dinner crasher just serve Turkey. I'll give a fuck Corey kluber. I will say very. That the Astros are in talks with propulsion don't like that not Paul Goldschmidt in the middle of that one. No. And also Saint Louis talks good go to Saint Louis everyone. Go to go to the NFL Cisco, the I do not need policemen on the Houston Astros of another thing. Screw janette. We've been talking about him constantly, you pretty much the driving force this you brought him up. He is not attending reds FanFest everyone else's. He's got some other shit to do. They pant put him on the have to wonder wonder if he's going to be treated this Sunday. I will make a prediction I think I don't know of GM's will operate this weekend. I know Cashman, we'll pick up the phone. But so of GM's are operating this weekend this week the holiday I'd say Sonny gray is on the reds by the next time. We do a podcast like next Monday. Yeah. So I think they just wanna get decorative, and plus Kashmir's me cash from you know, you're at the bar you tricking lot. Once you break, the seal, whatever, I think, Cashman, just broke the seal on the off-season. Yeah. Let's fucking go. You gotta strike while the aren't I mean, you have to I don't I hate when the offering toy January February was last year. Yeah. It was really weird, especially free market. Wasn't as strong the hitter hitters wise. The pitchers are thinner. But so I think it will. You know moves like this will set the tone. Of all, right. We gotta get going. Yeah. One hundred percent fuck was you want to mention nature and Beltre Jim beltway retire today. I one of my favorite non Yankees in baseball. Not like of all time. But like, you know, the last ten years whatever like he was I love the shit. He did you know, he wouldn't he wouldn't let people touch his head anytime. Andres would call him off for a fly ball. He just stare the fuck out of down. You kidding me? He throws people. The do just like had a ton of fun. The he had a he was really good. He's a surefire hall Famer things. First ballot three thousand hits just shy of five hundred runs. One hundred RBI one of the best third defensive their baseman ever the best play twenty one seasons never won a World Series. But he was in one. I someone brought up the angels. He wanted to play for the with the ranger. He wanted to play for the angels. And they wouldn't give him ninety six million dollars for like five years. Oh, yeah. Never ended up playing for the ain't. No. But he wanted to play there. And the angels said, no. So they ended up giving Hamilton all his money and pools like all his money and Belcher is by far the more predominant Bill trail until the end was productive to seventy three fifteen sixty five seventy eight thirty nine season baseball and. To seventy three like, I would've loved that. On the this year, just a solid hitter. Oh, yeah. I I I don't know for some reason I always remember that forty eight home run season with the dodgers is always sticks out my one Twenty-one hit three three that was like the I remember really hearing about Adrian bell trae bonds. Okay. Because you're forty to forty near before that two seven and for don't remember peace ball, really by remember that forty-eight home or near be like, oh, so you didn't Volterra. Guy. What did bonds to win it? Let's see. This is the oh one throw four was like ridiculous streak. They could be p of six forty every year for bonds was three sixty two with a what? Oh, my that's gotta be wrong. He had a six oh nine. He's like consistently ever was six six nine on base percentage commercials over three eight one of the things I do when I'm bored is I look at Barry Bonds o-on throw four stats his on base percentage. One of four is five fifteen five eighty two five twenty nine six oh nine people for years to stretch four years where you get on base more often than you don't. Sade hit her nine home runs in this four years. Crazy, sucks sucks rebel trae. But no, I there was a story of when he was at Seattle for like a Cup of coffee used there for couple of years like four or five. Felix Hernandez got word that whatever Belcher when the shit. He liked to just like the entire Betham. It'd be like silent. And let just have peace and quiet and anytime feel when he was there. He would go in the stall next to start talking pissed. I love peace and quiet when I think most people are like why would hear my roommates in college talking outside the room? I'd run the sink the whole time to cycle like drown them out. And have like the white noise of just running water. And they are you running the sink the whole that's hilarious. What team do you most remember him? What I think Texas. I guess Seattle. Dodgers wasn't paying attention to the base. Right. I wonder who go in the hall of fame. I guess think he wasn't the World Series arranger. I mean, it was more the tail and, but yeah, no. I guess ranger. I think I think you definitely ranger. Yeah. I think yeah. I know just hit the most hits in a season as arranger eight years at three hundred seven with the daughters five with Seattle. It's rare to have guy his caliber spend at least five years with three different teams. Yeah. Boston will always regret. That's one of the Red Sox fans like bigger grits letting beltway walk from that twenty Eason. But yeah, I think he's I bow. Hall of Famer played the game hit you'll you'll hear today on like, everyone the talks about it the same sentence like just play the game that you you know, that you hoped everyone else would like just had fun and play clean, even though. I think Doug Gottlieb once accused him of doing steroids because he's from the Dominican helix. Doug Gottlieb, but still. Credit card number forget. So so all the credit cards. Yeah. But played instead IRA to and never got caught with anything. I think that's. Yeah. Never did. Obviously, shadow L agent BELTRAN always wish you were Yankee flick a little bit at some point. But never happen. But for sure fire hall of Famer the Paxton scourge in it may be on his way, Bryce Harper. Maybe do this has been a little trade special offseason edition of the short Lee will see you next. Into a coast company gets in last week. In listen to having kicked in these one. Nice diction. Nah. I gotta catch Michigan show that I'm getting with young pity cow many sins. Get the hint shit. Great. Four. If there's a God. Going down.

Chris Antonetti on "Stalking" Brian Cashman, Game 7 of the '16 World Series, Tito Wagering on Scrabble

"In the baseball type PODCASTS pontiacs in from his home studio in Connecticut Taylor Schwenk on buster only in working from my own studio just north of New York City and Taylor had another episode to episode last dance last night. I did you see me on there. I was on there. Did you notice you work? I did not feel ashamed. Admitting that we're we're you I was on there. I told you I think I was at the press conference. When Jordan announced his first retirement right went into baseball. And I knew exactly where I was sitting in on so it was kind of looking like you know what aside there in the back of my head with his at that time still had all the hair intact very cool nice little little peak there in our Guy Tito Francona was on there and he was talking about things that he already talked about on the baseball tonight. Podcast which he had more time. He's stories to us a lot better than they were in the last dance for sure he got shortchanged and that was posted on Friday. If you want to go and find those Today we'll be talking with Chris. Antonetti the head of baseball operations the Cleveland Indians. And he's got stories about how the Blockbuster Trade for Andrew Miller in two thousand sixteen came together in a bad game seven of the world series including a major league baseball suggestion that both and Theo Epstein were very much against that night but first a few notes official Major League Baseball will cut its two dozen. Twenty draft to five rounds is owners looking to save costs in the wake of the corona virus. A push for fewer rounds over the objection of Front office officials is according to sources who spoke with our Jeff Passan Kylie mcdaniel. The plan which had had been relayed to scouting directors will allow teams to sign an unlimited number of drafted players for a maximum of twenty thousand dollars. A draft is expected to begin on June tenth. We'll be talking with Kylie mcdaniel about all that on the podcast on Tuesday. Our friend Jesse Rogers wrote over the weekend players believed that the risk of a return will be inherent due to the ongoing issues related to the pandemic and compensation should account for that the quote from Yankees Catcher and executive board member. Chris I and etta it goes back to not having fans in the stands. There's no fans in the stands. There is an intrinsic risks. That players are going to undertake. There is an intrinsic risks. That support staff and coaches are going to on support staff and coaches are going to undertake and we should get fairly compensated for taking that risk for the betterment of the game yes they could put a plan together but the players the owners have to agree on compensation and they are entrenched. Japanese baseball hopes to start their season in June. We'll get more information about that in the days ahead and I gotTa say if they're struggling to protect people in the White House. I don't know how they protect two thousand baseball players and staffers Taylor. You saw the news in recent days about people in the White House are testing positive where people get tested more than certainly just about any place else in this country yet. It's it's pretty interesting that I mean throughout all the I mean I feel like we're at such a weird place in this country where it's like. Are we going back to normal? Are we not in the place where they need to make these decisions? They can't keep those folks safe. So what are they gonNa do with these players? Some chatter from I do a golf podcast as well and You know the word on the street with the golfers you know. They're they're ready to take the risks so I wonder if baseball players just kind of feel the same. They're just like we. Just gotTa do it. We just gotTa get back to work in and give it a shot. I don't know how much weight that kind of general opinion will hold when they're making this decision but It's pretty interesting to see how it's all GonNa play out for sure. Yeah I'd say this a lot fewer golfers than baseball players like you know it would be hard to get an absolute Consensus to that And some something that. I think. Every player would participate in. But we'll have to wait and see we're going to get more information on that as the week goes ahead before we get to grow cyanide and be sure to listen to jalen. Jacoby the after. Show the recapping episode seven and eight of the last dance with director Jason Hare. We finally got some baseball talking episode. Seven which we just reverend sewers. In appearance by our friend Terry Francona talking about managing Jordan in Birmingham. Check out the after show presented by State Farm and at and T. Wherever you get your podcast if you yet to do so check out our interviews with Tito Friday let's get to Sarah Numbers Day reporter and a producer for MLB DOT com. Sarah coming up. We'll be talking with Chris. Antonetti the head of baseball operations the Cleveland Indians and GonNa ask him about Game Seven of the two thousand sixteen world series which the Indians loss but obviously a really big game in baseball history. I don't know if I have. It is the best game ever. Which one do you consider to be the best game ever? That's a really good question. I mean I will certainly say that. It's the best one that I have had the honored to be at so it certainly a six out in my mind for that reason but I don't know I mean I guess that for game seven. I always default to that bumgarner performance because it was just so incredible but in terms of the actual although that game was closer than anyone ever realizes because all you talk about is Bumgarner. You don't realize how close the game was. But you know both these had some back and forth tight game type of situations which I think is just you know exactly what you want in game. Seven hours was interesting because like two thousand sixteen. This series itself wasn't nearly as tight but then game seven was so incredible and then in twenty seventeen game. Seven was pretty much. A laugher was done in like the second inning but the series itself was so tight we had the walk off and all of that other stuff in that Dodgers Astros series. So I thought it was funny like that sort of doctor position of those two where the game seven wasn't as good in two thousand seventeen but the overall series probably was better along those lines. What do you have on game? Seven in two thousand sixteen. Which of course had the Rajai Davis home run in the eighth inning? And then you had the rain delay. And then you had the cubs winning an extra innings. Yeah so I mean just in terms of memories. I've got some great ones of the home. Run and of that rain delay we were. They're doing baseball tonight and sportscenter out with ESPN and we were in trailer. That was basically a parking lot behind. Where the stadium was and we get a feed in there. Were a little bit ahead of what everyone's watching at home. You know only a couple of seconds so you sort of know what's happening a little bit in advance but because of the position of our trailer which was right outside the stadium. We knew even further in advance. What was going on because we would hear the cheers and we were getting ready to go to the field. We'RE GONNA DO POST game. The cubs are GonNa win the world series. This is also great so much history and then we hear this crazy. Cheer Rajai Davis says at the plate on like Oh my goodness I think this game is tied a think something just happened and Lo and behold we see it on the TV. You know a second later. That was just like one of those chills kind of moments when something bad happen and sitting in a room not seeing happened that second and seeing the second later on the TV and we spent the rain delay in the old visitors bullpen at progressive field. Because they changed the bullpens they moved them to kind of in center field. You can see them when you're looking like from the batter's eye out into center field. But they used to be on the field level and they turned into the Stephen Area. And that's where we were taken because we had to be ready to go on the field and do our post game show immediately when the game ended and we went there even before the rain delays started and we were just standing there with some fans who are just standing there with their ESPN broadcasters chatting. I remember them chatting up Carlin just and whoever else and that was a pretty crazy place to witness all of that happening But I also took the wind probability from those final few innings there so entering the bottom of the eighth inning when the cubs were up six three the cubs had a ninety three percent chance to win the game and it went up to ninety five percent when Leicester Got Linder groundout and Napoli to strike out and then Jose Ramirez hits a single ninety four percent. That's when Chapman comes into the Game Than Brandon. Guyer hits his RBI double it drops to eighty six percent for the cubs and then Davis. It's the two run homer ties the game and it's forty seven percent chance for the cubs so the Indians finally have the actually higher percentage chance to Wentz and at the end of the ending. It was fifty fifty the lowest that the cubs win probability got two in that game with thirty five percent. Because in the top of the ninth. Remember there was a little bit of action for the cubs and Dexter Fowler. Grounded out to end the inning with Jason Heyward at third that was the lowest that it was for the cubs drop to thirty five percent but then obviously it went back up. The Indians didn't do anything. The cubs scored the next inning. After the Randall. And everything else own. My God net now the cubs won the world series. And so you know twenty thirty years from now roll. This Chapman Could be invited back and throw a first pitch in Wrigley field. Can you imagine the reaction to him if they lost that game? I know I mean it was incredible that that's what I was thinking as this was happening. Like this is the guy this is the trade they made. That was the we are going to win the world series trade. We've talked about it so many times. It wasn't a trade for the regular season. It was a trade for game seven world series. And here he was doing that. I mean you think of you know there's such a history of outstanding relievers honestly doing something a little bit wrong right there and it costing team or world series. I mean you can think of Mariana Rivera. He's absolutely hall of Famer. No question Everyone voted for him. All of this stuff and you two thousand one so I was thinking. Is this his moment like that? So good for him for the vindication for sure exactly all right Sarah. Great to talk with you later in the week. We'll be talking with Gary Cohn. I is one of your favorites from S. N. Y. Mets Broadcasters. We go along with Broadcasters Week. Thanks for doing awesome. Thanks unless you're having buster Christianity's the president of baseball operations for the Cleveland Indians and and Chris. Thanks for taking the time to join us for some storytelling and then and helping to distract us. My pleasure buster. Always great to be with you still. I've been talking with some of your peers. One of my favorite questions to ask them is. Give me a big deal that you talked about but it didn't come together and Sandy Alderson told me about offering a roster spot to get Michael Jordan on the Oakland Athletics and when we talk to Ned colletti he talked about feeling like he nearly pulled off a trade via in the summer of two thousand eight off and it was very interesting because I asked him after he ran through it and he ran through the fact that owner Frank mccord didn't improve the trade and I said I know you were having really positive conversations with Chris Antonetti but do you feel like if he had said yes. You would have gotten the deal done. He goes you know. Chris seemed disappointed when we pulled out of the talks. Because we didn't approval on it. But when you talk to Chris ask him if we would've gotten ceecee if we've gotten approval for that. So here's what you in the end of trading him to the brewers how close were the dodgers. The dodgers were close. They were one of the final few teams in it. In fact we're going back and forth late in the night and as I remember Ned had he'd like some dentist appointment at one point where he couldn't access his cell phone and was like panic that he would miss out on the deal and then his cellphone died Qiming. Who is the assistant jam at the time had to reach out to call us to try to figure out where things were so It was close. The dodgers were definitely in the thick of things and She she could very easily become a Los Angeles dodger. So if if they had the deal that blew up because it didn't get approved at that have been on the table. Do you think that he winds up? With the dodgers that would have been the consideration for us. I think at that point we were trying to up to kind of the best offers from teams and at that point the brewers and dodgers had emerges the top three teams. And what we were seeking to do was create offer from the dodgers. They could actually move forward on then. We would have weighed ad against the deal with Milwaukee but they would. It would have been a really tough decision for us. All right now In that case you guys were sellers in the summer of two thousand sixteen you were buyers and a trade. You made that year for reliever. Andrew Miller helped to take you guys all the way to game seven of the world series that year. What was so unusual was is that the Yankees for the first time that we could ever remember. We're actually sellers walk us through sort of how that came together for you guys. If for a while I felt I was stocking Brian cashman because I was calling him almost every day Trying to get a check and because he had a number of players that were you know he was talking about at that point in time and he cash is always awesome deal with because he's so transparent and so up front And You you knew. And he was really clear from the listen my responsibilities to work through and understand what the market is for our players. You know there are a lot of things that we need to work through internally before we get to the point of the being able to move forward so I'm happy to stay engaged. Happy to connect with you but just know this could change it any minute and we could decide not move any of these guys and that was the case through the time literally the day that we traded for him His ability to be able to move forward on that. Was You know uncertain? Just because it was such an unusual position for the Yankees to be in and obviously required considerable ownership conversations on his end. How quickly did you guys wind up? Agreeing to the prospects of WanNa being the deal A Sheffield and of course. Clint Frazier It took quite a while. Negotiations took. I'd say more than a month that whole process took I think we narrow down? Some of the primary pieces cash was really clear for your needed to be in it. We talked about fifty different versions of things I remember we were closest. We were I felt. We started at a chance for him Actually it was on a trip with my family. At a at a resort was on a rock climbing wall I took a phone call from cash just to make sure I didn't miss it At that point in time to talk through The some of the secondary players we might be able lineup on following that call felt we were Optimistic or be. Got Some sense of optimism. We might be able to to close things out so you literally were on the rock climbing wall. You're I'm guessing your kids might. Hey Dad come on. Let's go. I was literally next to my daughter on a rock climbing walls. Two Person Rock climbing wall and we were kind of trying to raise up to the top and at that point we were neck and neck and I stopped. And obviously there's a belay so you're on a rope you're not gonNA fall off. And she kept going. She was happy that you want and I was happy. 'cause we were closer to getting Miller now down the stretch for that deal to be made a couple more things you have irons in the fire on other relievers. You know. Plan B's if you don't get Andrew Miller and if you remember the Yankees actually won a series of games close to that deadline as is that being thrown into the mix as to whether or not they're going to trade Andrew. Do you remember any of that. All I remember that vividly actually Yeah we were in again Castro's credits to really upfront and said hey the way we play this weekend. I think they were playing Tampa at the top. You said that could be really intellectual for the direction we decide to go so he and he literally said. I am sure we'll end up on this. You know at that point he was talking to Hal. Steinbrenner and said we'll have to see where this goes but from baseball standpoint. I think we're moving towards something. We'd recommend you getting ownership approval. Something that I I really need to work through deliberately and how we play this weekend could impact their thoughts on how pivotal do you think that? H- that getting Andrew was for. How are you guys made it that? Postseason no question. We would not have made it nearly as far without Andrew. I think our teen as it was going into this. The playoffs in two thousand sixteen. We lost the number of guys to injuries at that point and Andrew just shouldered such an extraordinary load for us throughout the postseason and We relied on him so heavily and he hit so well obviously evidenced by you know his championship series. Mvp is a reliever and not only the amount of innings equality of innings he pitched in how pivotal those were the Games we played so without Andrew. We wouldn't have been playing in the world series now. How Much Terry? Certainly there was a lot of focus on on. Tito for the way that he handled your guys bullpen. Especially in the first two rounds of that postseason how much of the structure that you guys came up with. What was talked about going into games in other words? Was there talk of. Hey if we have the certain situations certain matchup in the fifth inning. Maybe this is something we go to. So we talk about quite extensively prior to acquiring the injured versatility that he provided the fact that he not only dominated left handed hitters but right handed hitters as well so really could be using any leverage spot anywhere in the game and for multiple innings and that was one of the reasons why we were willing to part with such a premium. Prospect package was because of exactly because of versatility and also. He's such a self. He made that he was willing to pitch whenever they being mattered and didn't need to. Just wait for the eighth or ninth inning. So we talked about that extensively when we acquired and then going into the postseason that was clearly going to be one of our strategies. But we didn't do it on a game to game level. Obviously I've got great and trust and Tito to determine the best times to players in the you know for a position for position Netafim for success and. I'm not sure there's anyone better in the game at doing that. Tito so the game to game decisions. We'd left for them but on the vision for the role. How intricate could impact. Our team spent quite a bit of time. Talking about in talking with Your pairs the years. They talk about October's being a time when they feel absolutely helpless. I mean you are at the top of baseball operations for the Indians but in that one month you know so much out of your hands. What's that like to watch as day-to-day basis? And how much you sleeping? You know. It's so there's so many emotions. Obviously at that time of year. You know in our seat at that point. A lot of the work is done. Once you get through the advance scouting meetings and preparation. There's not a whole lot you can do so. You're watching the game like anyone else and the emotions. You know you had the roller coaster of emotions. I think one of the things we tried to do deliberately as as a staff and as an organization during that postseason time. Let's make sure we enjoyed the ride. I think we all were cognizant of the fact just how special that team was. How special some of the accomplishments they achieved together were and we wanted to make sure we just. Didn't you skip to the end and not enjoy the journey? So we try to be really deliberate about it. We involved are you entirety of our baseball operations and organization inviting them. The postseason world series and Try and create a lot of moments and memories and I think if you talk to a lot of people within our organization despite the final outcome and not winning that last game. They'll look back on. That is an extraordinary time and Some great memories to cherish so when when the last out is made in the American League Championship series and you guys are propelled to the world series. What do you remember about that moment and what you did right? After that it we were in Sweet Piranha watching with our few members of our baseball operations. Then you know Paul Dolan and his wife Karen were there and I did. I remember turning gave Mike Chernoff a huge hug and then there were lots of hugs and high fives and there was one sweet in the ballpark. That was celebrating and the rest of the Rogers Centre was pretty quiet so Those are some special moments. And then the thing. I'll I'll remember after that is in the clubhouse there are some great moments celebration but the the class and the dignity of Mark Shapiro to stop down and and congratulate US. And the moment we share together Was something I'll always remember because marks not only been incredible mentor for me in friend but also was a huge part of building that team and I know he's you know he's disappointed that his team didn't win but came over and and we shared a moment. I'll always remember marks words during the time game. Seven of the world series one of the most memorable games in history in part. Because of your guys come back what are you? Can you describe what you remember when Rajai Davis hits the game? It's a game tying home run. That game was so hard. Because you know we thought we were. Well positioned in lined up with clues on the mound again and our our bullpen. We felt we were in a decent spy. And you guys that we had relied up to that point just. They weren't at their best that day. Which is certainly understandable given the workflow that they had absorbed to get us to that point. So you know there was there were some moments of pretty quiet leading up to that and then you know we started to mount the comeback. You can feel the energy pick up a little bit and a little bit more and a little bit more than you. You saw Chapman. Maybe wasn't as sharp as he possibly could have been and then when Raj connected on that home run down. It was the loudest I've ever heard. Arkham. I'm sure biased of that because of my affiliation with a team but it was bonkers in the ballpark that night and was bonkers and sweet where we were watching game and it was really a moment of euphoria. They're very few moments. You have like that but that was that was one of those and then immediately after that you got back to the reality of like wait. Games tied. We've got a lot of work. Still left to do both surreal experience by baseball career. So far when a Theo Jed might turn off an I had. We descended into like this dugouts. We behind the plate and like we had just in game seven of the world series. The emotions were all emotionally spent. The games been a roller coaster. Raj just hit the home run and now we're sitting in the suite behind Behind home plate and Theo and I were just looking at each other like really a rain. Delay Right now and rob actually at one point because they were uncertain. The weather forecast Fox was wanting us to just you know if it looked doubtful. Just stop the game there and pick it up the following day at eight o'clock you're kidding that would have been like a drag race. You know exactly. Imagine that so a theater. Our just like we need to finish. We need to finish the game tonight so again. You're competitive. Theo's competitive in that moment. But you guys are collegial. And that sorta over over strips everything else. Yeah Yeah Oh absolutely I mean it was like yeah. Were like no. It was just literally just because again the way the series went in the emotions. Now we're all exhausted at the end of a long season and the way that game played out with rollercoaster of emotions. We were all just gassed to have the rain delay on top of it. It was kind of hard to believe and then when there was some conversation about stopping that game and trying to pick it up the next day at you know at at eight o'clock or whatever the time was we were. I'm not sure either one of US would have made it to the next day. At that point I ask Dave Dombrowski after the Tigers played the red sox in two thousand thirteen American League Championship series and I asked him the following Spring How long did it take you to sort of get past that loss? And he said normally I got past he said I get past these losses very easily. But if you remember that That series between the red sox and Tigers Tigers ated about eighty percent of it like it seemed like every game. They're starting pitcher. Was carrying a no hitter into the middle innings and yet they lose that series and he said it took him a long time for you as a competitor. Because you're not getting into this without being competitive How how long before you able to turn the page from that world series? I'll let you know when it happened. Buster no it is. I mean you look back and think about your replay. The game and just different things that could have gone You know the other way and Sometimes think back and Rewatch game game seven in its entirety. But I've got enough memories to know how close we were so Yeah it's something I still processing think back on from time to time. Will you think you'll ever watch it all the way through I think I will. I mean I'm sure I will at some point. I mean I love baseball. I love the game. Obviously the drama that it was a special time for you know those of us within baseball operations repair and my family. And we had a lot of bonding memorable moments along the way so. I'm sure I'll look at some point. I just haven't had the had the courage to Re-watch it yet tell me about the first time that you laid eyes on C. Sobat THE SO. I was a young Young assistant in baseball operations and had been drafted a couple of years before and I mean. I'm sure you've probably heard the stories that see when he signed with the Organization of not using seems on the baseball just kind of getting in and throwing But by the time I had seen him you know he had started to Really matured because he's such an extraordinary athlete and I know it may not look when you first CECE CECE. But he's extraordinary. Athletes obviously an incredible. The intelligent guy so his learning curve was about as fast as any player or any pitcher that that I can remember. I remember sitting behind the plate for Who's a twenty year? Mehta's you may the team at Spring Training Charlie. Manuel will pounded able for him. And it was just left-hander huge physical athletic guy with up to a hundred miles an hour. Great Great feel for a change up and a you know at the time at developing breaking ball but when he clicked it was it was something special so It was you knew you're watching something and the start of something to what what could be an incredible career deceased credit. He reinvented himself a few times throughout our along the way but it was fun to see. And there's I'm looking forward to today. He's inducted into the hall of fame because he certainly deserves that. That honor I'll always believe he's the best team that I ever witnessed But I wasn't on the inside the way you were. What are some examples of see is a teammate that you saw all there are so many? I think I mean if you talk to those other. People that have acquired fi or been around whether their managers coaches clubhouse staff. They'll all tell you the same thing they're they're making me and I think she was the first person to you know when something went wrong he'd stand up and say hey. I need to be better but I also need you to be better. And because he held himself such a high standard and how he worked how he prepared how he competed that. And how much? He cared not only about his own performance. But the team's performance that gave him the platform to lead and he did that. Such extraordinary way and found a way to connect with every player and was a unifying guy a unifying presence in every clubhouse who has ever in from the time he was eighteen years old with minor leagues all the way through through his final years with the Yankees. Yeah that was part of the pitch. Brian Cashman made to him. Was We need you to change our clubhouse? We need you to to pull all these groups together. How how did he do that Chris when he was in your clubhouse he generous if he cares genuinely about people and I think people knew that she cared about him and like I said he? Would you set the standard by the way acted? He's not one of those guys you know. There are people all the time to talk about. I mean they talk the talk but don't follow through and she. She was one of those guys that they did. And I think he earned respect with the way he acted and within a clubhouse he found ways to connect with each person on an individual level and that allowed him again. The ability to win there needed to be a tough conversation. You already had the relationship in place to have those. Tell me about the first time you laid eyes on Francisco Lindor. Yeah that was That was an instructional league You know at the time. Obviously I had seen all the video and had seen All the information we had when we you know we redrafted him but did not see him live and told Instructional League and when you saw him the first thing that stands out is just the enthusiasm for which he played the game. I mean he had you. He loves being out there. He loves competing loves thing. That's out probably more than how much he loved the practice And how much he just like being on a baseball field? And then you could just see the athleticism. His actions have shortstop The way he played the game stood out at the time. It wasn't evident and I'd be lying if I said it stood out on the way in which he impacted the ball. That wasn't his strength of his at the time he was seventeen. He had some really good ingredients to hit. But I wouldn't have sat there at that point that hey this guy. Going to hit thirty home runs in the big leagues at some point in time but his presence on the field his enthusiasm immediately stood out. And I want to ask you. Lastly about Terry Francona. I remember when I worked on Sunday. Baseball within for that one year. I didn't really press him because I was a team-mate about what he wanted to do. But I assume because he'd had so much success with the red sox that That he would wind up with a big market team and then when he saw guys he said to me said listen like going back and you know this is like family for me. What are some some experience? You bad with Terry. Francona your manager Tom. So grateful and thankful that Tito had that perspective and was willing to partner with us it Back in two thousand twelve because at the time we were coming off very rough stretches and organization and hadn't been to the playoffs in a few years and We knew we needed to get better. At the major league level you we needed to improve our minor league system and we also are cognizant of our market realities and Tito from day one that I want to be part of the solution. I'm energized by those challenges. I'm not intimidated by them. And I want to be part of helping you know the organization rebuilt and from the day he arrived. He's lived up to that and more and share this before but as excited as I was in the day we hired him on even more excited eight years later opportunity to continue to work alongside him. Because he's a hall of fame manager and he gets a lot of recognition for the tactical things that he does on the field. And how successful is he is. But he's also an extraordinary leader for an organization that helps bring people together and help unite people. And he's been a he's had such an extraordinary impact on our franchise over the last eight years it because he's so easy going and everybody likes him and You know he's so welcoming to people whether it's players whether it's member of the media. I think that part that gets lost about him is how competitive is Can you speak to that? Yeah he has that the self effacing humor but he brilliant. He's extraordinarily competitive and he's a great athlete. He's the type of guy that you watch him. Pick up a golf club and swim club or just pick up a basketball and shoot it. And you're like wow that's a good athlete. And he hates to lose. I mean it doesn't matter what it is. It's cribbage before the before the game if it's baseball if it's shooting free throws he he he hates losing and And but he does it in such a great way in the way he he makes it fun. And I think that's one of the things that makes it so enjoyable work alongside. Tito is not only have all these great attributes but he's a lot of fun to be around. I consider him a close and dear friend. Have you ever played a game with them of some kind whether it is golf or whether you are shooting free throws Oh yeah we could we play scratch? We'll play scrabble on his on his phone and yeah he'll-he'll compete in scrabble on his phone. So he's not want on it. Yeah usually he'll wanNA wager on and I'm smart enough not to do that. But he's very competitive on everything. All Right Chris. Why appreciate you taking the time? My pleasure buster always ready to catch up bleacher tweets already buster bleacher tweets for Mundy our friend savage and the beast at savage and beasts writes in one year for Mother's Day. I took my mom to Yankee Stadium. And we sat about thirty feet from Bernie Williams her favorite player in right field. It was a great day. Do you have any favorite baseball memories with your moms and I was actually thinking about this yesterday. Unprompted for savage beasts and shout out to Kathy Shrink because I was in second grade and it was my birthday and being the Gullible. Seven or eight year old. I was. She said I gotTa pull you out of school early. You got a doctor's appointment. Were getting ready to go. She said You WanNa put on your your Oriole's hat before we go and I was like. Yeah sure whatever mom threw it on a picked it up off the bed and underneath were two tickets to game two of the against the Cleveland Indians. Quite memorable birthday. They lost that game but a great time and always remember that one with my mom. Yeah so you you and I are in the same ballpark at the same time. I was there that day or not. Yak. Yeah I absolutely was there For me I've told said in the past that I'm the only member of my family among my siblings. My parents who sports the rest of them can't stand sports. I'm the black sheep. I talk about cows. I talk about Pumpkins I talk about managing fields with my brother But I never talk about sports but yet my mom was the one that really got me interested in baseball. She got me book on Sandy Colfax. When I was eight she got me. My first packs of baseball cards. The first baseball card I ever saw was Gary Sutherland. Play with the Houston Astros and I told the story about how on the morning after Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's record. She left a note for me on the kitchen table whatsoever. I came down to go out to the barn in the morning. She wrote out the details from the night before that Hank. Aaron broke the record and she wrote. The crowd cheered so my mom was absolutely instrumental for My interest in baseball which he probably be regretted in later years when she found herself tripping over my stacks of baseball cards right. Well led you to your career in the manual today. Maybe maybe not all regret there from your mother out. Only we got one from Aaron Iran San Diego. He writes over the years. I have heard in tried some wild ways to break in a glove. Some of my favorites include. Put it under your mattress or baking it in the oven. What is the weirdest way you've heard an MLB player break in a glove? You know what In THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS. I think we're GONNA have on a person who'd be absolutely perfect to answer that question so Taylor. Let's hold errands question. four. Let's say about two weeks from now. I think we're GONNA get this person on. He will give a purpose. Ganster by the way I was just going to mention just for friends who listen to podcast My Mom's name was Mary Lincoln me. Oh that's okay But just in case people who who know me were like. Who's this Mrs only person whoops all last one for a heath writes in with Major League Baseball Losing Revenue Dacoven Nineteen? Do you think this will speed up the relocation expansion process if so do you think Portland will get a team through one of those options? He notes the Portland. Diamond Project is one such movement vying for a baseball team in Chile. I think it's GONNA slow it down like we've talked about. How can you imagine if you're the Tampa Bay rays or the the Oakland athletics? And you're looking for help support in building new ballpark. Good luck with that right now. with where the economy is in this country generally speaking but I do wonder if in a couple of years once the situation with the economy get stabilized if it may accelerate. Because you're going to see Major League owners having lost a lot of money during this time are looking for ways to fill in In one of those ways is to sell a couple of expansion franchises so I think you know within four or five years. You're going to hear more talk about that interesting that'll do it for bleacher tweets. Subscribe to this podcast.

Brian Cashman and the Yankees Whiffed on Starting Pitching at the DeadlineAgain. Plus: the Giants Stand Pat | Why I Hate My Team

"Hey It's Kelly and welcome to the ringer podcast network up on our site. The ringer is breaking down the fortieth best singles and albums from nineteen ninety nine covering Britney any spears the backstreet boys Mariah Carey tons more and to accompany that piece we filmed our staffers discussing what they agreed and disagreed with from the article and debated what should should've won you can read the piece on the Ring Dot Com and watch the video at youtube dot com slash the ringer and welcome to I hate my team. I'm Bobby Wagner. I am deep producer of the Ringer M._l._b.. Show <hes> this week. We're going to talk to Sean you in the second half of the show about the Yankees and how they kind of maybe <hes> didn't pull things together at the trade deadline the way that he was hoping to but I I have Sapphire Clermont Tire McNair on the line hi Claire Great to be here. Claire is giants Fan and she has really been through it in the last couple of weeks so we're GonNa talk a little bit about that Claire. Can you take take me where you were emotionally a month ago and where you are now a few days removed from the trade deadline. I know that's a big ask but I mean it was so easy busy at the start of the season to two giant fan because you knew what you were going to get you just going to have a terrible season that he was gonna be garbage just awful to watching it. At the trade deadline the best players would leave that Madison bumgarner would go play for another team and it was going to be awful. I wrote something for our emily preview. Have you got it like I was preparing to say goodbye I was. I was distraught but you know it had to happen. This is easy. Oh well that was the easy part and then suddenly it turned into July first and all of a sudden the giants remembered how to play baseball. They went sorry this down somewhere her in the first three weeks of July fourteen in three and the Games are fun had dominant pitching offense leading and comebacks extra inning heroics the name naming Madison of course phenomenal as always <hes> and suddenly it became a thing where Oh my God they can't Trade Madison. Listen bumgarner anybody because probably the giants are going to win the world series. I mean they're not they're not book probably <hes> <hes> so it just turned into this this kind of nightmare of <hes> I I was feeling then sad but then about the trade deadline <hes> until July and then suddenly I really did not want the team to trade Madison Bumgarner particular but also kind of knew that <hes> even with the team suddenly performing kind of well it was more than likely something of a fluke in which case they absolutely should bumgarner but anyway it's the journey so let's start there with Madison Bumgarner because there are other players obviously that other teams were interested in. I think the biggest rumor before this heading into the season and then it continued can you throughout was like closer will Smith <hes> and he ended up not moving either <hes> but I do want to start with bumgarner because he's kind of like the big ticket item for giants fans. Obviously he holds a very important place in all of Y'alls heart because of his postseason performance and just he's been kind of like the one consistent thing on that pitching staff since they've become in this generation of players so for you. What is your relationship to him? What was your relationship so the idea of maybe moving him and letting him go to a contender because I'm just going to say this plainly I guess the rest of Baseball Kinda hates him and reason so so when he's wearing your uniform arm and he's obviously brought to you a lot of these just elite moments of happiness? What is it like to watch the rest of baseball hope that he kind of fails and then did you want to keep him this time around at the trade deadline and y Yeah I mean the way I feel about Bumgarner <hes> I should stop calling in Madison? We're not on a first name basis movie. You are the world series <hes> you know. He's a jerk but he'd archer. <hes> you know I I was listening to <hes> Craig gains on an earlier episode of this talk about <hes> <hes> his daughter has been paid for Madison Bumgarner and I get it I mean I absolutely get it. I cannot resent <hes> other fans of other teams NSA not not loving Bunger <hes> but you know I I have a Madison Bumgarner Christmas ornament but I hang on my every year. Oh yeah indeed but yeah but I just had a birthday and I had a conversation earlier this season about how you know I was Kinda contemplating. Maybe the beginning like a new giants Jersey and I was like well. I would want to get the bumgarner one but I can't I it will break my heart when he goes and plays for the Yankees like a month later <music> so <hes> you know it's been it's been tough like I was saying before it on the one hand. It would kill me to see him play for another team on the other other giants T._M.. Is Maybe not necessarily going places and there are a lot of teams that could've used the reliable arm even if it was one one that had previously infuriated them and trying to cash in on Bumgarner for a handful of prospects probably would have been better longterm move or at least rest of nineteen move but <hes> I'm. I'm not mad about it. And why would you be right like the the whole Madison Madison Bumgarner was not going to be like the hall for an Ace who has a couple more years of team control right. It's not going to be the Justin verlander. It's it's not going to be like that kind of thing where you're getting getting back your next generation of great giants. It's going to be like you're getting a couple of guys who might turn into something but he's only under contract for the rest of the year and the compensatory pick without without getting into the weeds too much that they're going to get back by losing him in the off season. Should they lose him. I mean who knows maybe he just wants to come back and play with the giants for the rest of this. It's been funny to watch <hes> the beat writers trying to get any kind of quote out of Bumgarner this week about not being treated about about the anticipation right before the deadline and his thoughts right after and he's just shut down everything will want. He's like Oh. I didn't really think about it. He says he was like in the weight room when it hit four o'clock and he didn't even notice the trade the headline in the past like he's totally indifferent didn't have any preferences either way you know. He just cares about baseball if that's actually true but that is a very bumgarner line at least so yeah I mean what what was interesting about. This trade deadline in particular is the giants the Stephen have new leadership in the Front Office <hes> they in the off season hired for his Aidi who was <hes> the daughters G._M.. And he's credited as one of the main architects rex this current Elliott team <hes> and he did really good job balancing the team's kind of obvious need for prospects which was a lot of sort of what his marching orders were when he was hired for this job. <hes> was Kinda SORTA. Maybe keeping the door open should the giants for some reason keep he winning like eighty five percent of their games which they will but maybe <hes> so you know it was I I did not envy <hes> his having to be the Person Hill to make that decision yes so that was the next guy I wanted to ask you about. I mean there are a couple of fringe guys who might get traded and stuff but I think the real star of this deadline for the giants is probably four hundred eight era in giants fans to be thrilled with what he did and why not right. They didn't lose all their players. They got off the Mark Melanson contract which is nuts that he was even and being paid so much and I was looking back at Atlantans fan graphs and baseball reference and stuff and I kind of think like as someone who wasn't watching him day in and day out. I thought he was way worse by now but he's it's like still a pretty serviceable reliever right <hes> for for alive teams who are starved for relievers because they're using them so much right like the market for relievers as if you're a guy in the three are three E. R. as you're probably pretty useful to a team who needs like more than half of their innings from bullpen and the braves rotation is kind of very questionable right now so so they <hes> they got away with that one I think but as someone who's watched very closely the dodgers build themselves into this juggernaut contender under every year and you've been in the same division them and it's tough because the dodgers are always winning the division. The giants have had their share of postseason success. I don't need to tell you that but now that you're in far Honda. Is it like just the most comfortable warm embrace that you can ever have is a fan because I don't know that I'll ever experienced that I mean it was a little bit terrifying. I kinda SORTA thing. Keep bumgarner but probably don't but maybe <hes> basically what I've been saying on this but you know he did an incredible the job of of kind of doing both things 'cause it was giants Fan <hes> had kind of woken up to the team because suddenly Oh my God they were really really exciting again and and she was going to be the person who got screamed at for for sending away beloved Bumgarner or the idiot who didn't do anything anything for the team and continued what the giants had been doing the kind of Gotham into this which is giving out you know too much money we're kind of staying staying the course with <hes> with with <hes> like aging stars who weren't necessarily quite what they had been even a few years ago <hes> and he he kind of managed to do a little bit of buying a little bit of selling which was sort of the running joke that that the giants would be able to pull off but he actually did it so I mean yeah. He did a great job. It's exciting. I think you know with with so many teams that are stacked and so many teams that are tanking right now. I think kind of the market inefficiency is like being average you know and when when your average can have good players just a few good the players here and there who are very reliable you might go on one of these streets that the giants are going on. You know what I mean like. The mets are kind of in the same boat right now where it's like they have a good solid core. They have obvious gaps and they have a lot of aging stars or a few aging stars in key positions and if things come together you might win seven in a row or you might win eighty five percent sending your games you know so. Let me ask you this for the rest of the season. Are you just expecting them to fall right back off a cliff or are you kind of like in your heart of hearts. Are you like maybe this is one of those teams that will just pull a rabbit out of the hat. I mean you might have noticed that I said that their hot streak was the first three weeks of it. Now being over <hes> they have kind of flipped back into looking <hes> quite a bit more like they did <hes> before July <hes> they just dropped last night their first series and June to the Phillies <hes> and yeah. They're not necessarily looking like they're I mean they're the wild card. Progress is really tough like on the one hand they're only two and a half games back for the N._F._l.. Wildcard but there are four teams ahead of them right now the diamondbacks and met the mets. Let's are just fine you know as much as it has been very exciting and that hot three Kinda gave let me say this team and enlarge perp because it it was sort of the result of some new faces in the lineup <hes> you know I wanted to believe in it but it does seem like like maybe twenty nineteen giants are back the twenty nineteen giant <hes> year so you know you know not even the air <hes> so you know I I can deal with it like I said I went into the season not expecting anything but <hes> it would be it would be something if they've been this week in the wildcard right okay so last question kind of looking forward once once twenty and nineteen is wrapped and you know we don't anticipate that they're going to pull off some wild world series run <hes> so with that caveat being said like. Are you worried that you just going to have to go through a lot of this same emotional journey like are you worried that you might not be able to find your how did you describe it your something things in the same thing that you're going to get in the off season or now that this trade deadline has passed you feel like you're kind of on the other side of the storm storm. Oh Man <hes> I mean I guess I should. I should say that that that this team has made me so happy. In recent years that I really I can never complain like I feel like the giants could never gets the world series again in my lifetime and I would still be like a spoiled person but <hes> it who'll be tough to watch as they kind of finally have to start letting the the beloved stars of those championship teams go and and that might ultimately mean bumgarner because I mean they can't keep handing out these massive award contracts. You'll spend your whole career as a giant <hes> because then the players get older and your team doesn't end up winning anymore so I mean no. I guess my short answer is no I do not what and dissipate of being being more than than not but but you know you you kinda get like the hope I think is that for his Aidi will lead to a wonderful place and a couple few years <hes> where once again we felt like fun exciting <hes> young players and a farm system is finally starting to come back so so yeah I mean I think Zaidi is probably to prudent to really just give out those massive reward contracts and I think he was. He was hired tired not exactly yeah you don't bring in front office all right well. Here's to hoping that you just get to watch all of the giant stars of yesteryear ride off into the sunset buster. Posey Bell Brandon covers so a lot of these guys are still really good and useful players so it'll be fun to watch them into where their jerseys for the coming years Claire. Thanks thanks so much for doing this. I really appreciate it thank you it was a pleasure Sean. You in the Studio Sean You. What's up it Bob? Thanks for having me even though I'm not too thrilled to be here to talk about the Yankees current situation. I'm glad you invited me to this podcast. It's kind of the point man you throw a couple of people have come on here and been like love being a fan of my team still and I'm like you guys are supposed to lean into the we all still love being paid for you know I'm I for one. I'm just glad that we didn't have to come fisticuffs. This week. That one is is not now your race I know you I dropped him. The slack that if I said like I'd be super excited if Noah came to the Yankees obviously but then you're like Sean. You're dead to me if that happens and I was like look. That's the fair response. That's I expect that from my friends who are mets fans. I wasn't playing around okay so so we should start there. Actually I should start with starting pitching <hes> because that's that's not where the Yankees started. Oh boy the Yankees as let's Nashville now stood pat at the trade deadline. <hes> there's been a lot of writing on the radio DOT COM winners and losers Michael Baumann summarizing <hes> who did a good job who didn't didn't fill gaps that they needed who kind of just did nothing <hes> and the Yankees are one of those teams that kind of just did nothing <hes> and you know he pegged him as a loser so they obviously didn't get the three biggest stars that moved I would say we're Bauer. Stroman Cranky Bauer and Stroman specifically they're like arbitration players their unrestricted free agents in twenty twenty one and so those would have been I think really useful trades for this Yankees team as it's constructed right now and then cranky thirty five million a year you know you can sort of make a case for why they wouldn't WanNa do that at and go into the luxury tax for a guy that's like in his mid thirties losing velocity on his fastball but th- rotation right now Tanaka the Paxton <unk> Herrmann and like potentially a heavy if he comes back and right does it likely he will remain in the bullpen for the Yellow Obsolete Lisa make a couple of starts just spot starts at the end of the year but they will probably be spot starting or bullpen Agnete v day for a while so we should start there. Were you expecting them to get a starter. Were you expecting them to do the Yankees thing where they just make an offer people can't refuse and suddenly now they have a guy who's GonNa fill that role <hes>. I think everyone I was expecting it. Especially <hes> all of last off see this past off season was the Yankees need more starting pitching the Yankees need more starting pitching and we got Paxton and he hasn't been the pitcher that he was in Seattle that he is with the Yankees but it's still another <hes> solid pitcher that we have but I think everyone really expected especially since we're we're coming off truly the worst pitching week in franchise history and compared to the other teams in the A._l.. The raise Indians and Astros who are all competing for a world series there the top four in the I._R._A.. And the Yankees right now are fifteen so it's a glaring glaring need and I think I talked. We talked real briefly before we're recording this pod about how I was immediately after the trade deadline furious and then I kind of talked myself into it being fine and the main reason I talked myself into being fine was <hes> this from cashman where he says these prices that I felt were way out of reach doesn't sound like a he says later doesn't sound unlike anything was in the in the ballpark of what they were expecting and it makes sense to a degree because <hes> with the mets they're ready to strip stroman and the price He's were included in that and so that makes sense why he's off the board the Bauer thing I'm a little confused by feel like match made in heaven this really Louis honestly but you know the next level down was like a Robbie Ray and you know the next tier down of pitchers but even that asking price Christ d-box are asking for was clint frazier three prospects and you know I'm like that's not worth it for a rental and who knows if they'll fit in this Yankee rotation Asian well and so I've that that was the point where I talked myself into trusting cashman and it being a fine off season or trade deadline excuse me and and then I just continue to look at our starting pitching our bullpen and I'm like we're in trouble. We're in trouble when you look at what the Astros have you know yeah it doesn't maybe necessarily need to be a binary because like not all of the pitchers perfect for this rotation but then again you look at the other end of it and it's like while our rotation isn't good enough as it is so like this is the cards that you're rebel in. You may have to play with those cards. Trusting Brian Cashman is probably not a bad way to go out as a fan. He's in a very good job of building this team and he's done a better job than basically any any Yankees Front office ever has in developing homegrown talent one hundred twenty years or so you know he's been he's been great at it and it you're right. It's a it's the perfect person to put your trust in <hes> I think it was a dumb Dombrowski's twee about how he was like. We're not even I didn't make any moves hooves 'cause we're not inconvenient. Close and I said to my friends like if cashman ever said something like that like all of New York would riot and people people will lose their minds and that's kind of the the level of degree that we the level of standards that we hold cashman too and I respect it but look I mean it's a two man man. It's a two team race in the A._l.. And the Astros clearly leveled up and the Yankees are going to run the same team that you know hasn't gone to the world series in awhile in two hundred nine and so I you could just hear my voice. I'm not thrilled when you put it that way. It is a little tougher. I think the thing that you probably need to remember in which I don't need to remind you of is that when the Yankees you have to pay a tax like no team is going to give you a guy when they know that you have the money and the capital and frankly the prospects of the last twenty years that cashman has done a great job developing like we're talking about when you have the the assets to pay for it. They're not going to not ask you know nobody wants to get ripped off by the richest just team yeah and it's like it's the classic Yankee problem. It's you know it's such a historical powerhouse in you know certain players WanNa come play for the Yankees Yankees. Other players do not and other players or other teams don't want to deal with us and you know the fact that the mets were even talking with the Yankees was hilarious to me because because you know they're in the same city and they've always been you know at at odds with each other whether even though they're not in the same league league but it's one of those things where it's like why who you know looking from the outside a Yankee fan like who'd ever want to deal with the Yankees whatever WanNa make a trade to benefit the Yankees Geeze even though it benefits the other team significantly and you can you saw clearly in this trade line where other teams were asking for the world for for the pitchers that our players they they had and it was you know smart of Kashmir to say you know no that's ridiculous but again credit to these other teams who are not going to let the Yankees you know run run over them with the deal that only benefits one team who has had success historically you know it's it's quite a dilemma being Yankee Fan but I can't complain. It's interesting that <hes> you know it's interesting that we're talking about that and you feel that way. The teams don't want to help the Yankees at all because you couldn't another sport and their teams are pretty willing to help like the warriors yeah. They're pretty willing to help the Knicks if need be get off cap money all these different things like all baseball gets like a rap for the owners in front office excluding with each other and I don't want to make about that because he stuff that I maybe don't know enough about even though it picture has been painted but the N._B._A.. It's like we're all helping each other out. Here guys like we're all tampering. We're all doing this. We're all doing that handshake deals in like wings I'll get you. I'll get you in two years. You know like I'll help you with this pay-cut like Daryl Morey. Does it all the time and I'm like well. That's incredible. The M._B._A.. Is a great place and everyone's thriving together but I guess baseball the it's the ego thing right all these G._M.'s WanNa be you know praised for all the moves they make and solely around them and not you know not ever being like a Cashman Dombrowski deal. What a great job for both of these guys? Those guys are all super high eagle minded G._M.. As rockstar yeah of course especially Ashley in baseball more so than any other sport so I totally get it but yes to some extent like fans identify more with the G._M.. Than they do with players which is like you would never ever see someone who's like. Everybody Loves Daryl. Morey you know specifically N._B._A.. Media included but like you'd never see a guy be like I like Darrell Moody Del Maury better than James Harden now but if you love the G._M.. In baseball you like maybe they made a movie about that guy. One day May Brad Pedal playoffs. I mean yes seriously and it's like you know. I'm sure there are people who are Theo Epstein fans will like follow him. Entrust entrust him wherever he goes and CASHMAN's that same way Cashman is beloved by The New York Yankees Yankee's fan the fan base and everyone but I think this deadline was one of the ones where we were like we just we just wanted more of you. I know teams. We're kind of you know asking for a lot and and kind of trying to play you but you're Brian Cashman. You're the New York Yankees like make moves like that. <hes> you know make moves with the New York on your on your cap and that was the stanton trade right. That was the fucking Yankees trade and I don't know maybe you're looking for a a little bit more of that because I think the the prevailing thought in baseball among like level-headed reasonable fans is like we can't just win the world series on a whim him we could make all the right decisions and still lose and that doesn't happen in in basketball it maybe does happen in football but less so but baseball is such a crapshoot right that I feel like a lot. The fans have come to accept the fact that even if we make all the right prudent moves we might not win so we probably shouldn't just make a wild trade at the trade deadline and baseball basil fans have become a little bit more levelheaded but the Yankees fans are not included in that ever historically win every trade and win every world series right you know I had a funny conversation position with <hes> a diehard dodger fan last night and we were both talking about how you know we're we're R. Both our teams are favored in a world series spot and the dodgers did it make any moves but both the consensus was the dodgers have a kind of a cake walk through the N._F._l.. As of now just because they've been there the last two years and they're clearly the best team <hes> and you know obviously they have some holes but from the Yankee perspective is like L._A.. Fans are you know they're passionate to some degree about baseball but New York in New York fans. It's like it's like lifeblood like I. I can't tell you how many times I've had random when I was living in New York like have random conversations conversations with strangers about the New York Yankees and like I'll I've missed. Stop my stops because of having a heated argument with the Yankees it's like it's more more ingrained with the lifestyle of your culture and it's all people talk about during a baseball season whereas you know everyone in l._a.'s like more so you'd probably be more in line to have a conversation about once upon a time in Hollywood then how are the dodgers doing right now shots feature presentation of Gray Pot on on a great website but the thing is is fascinating like Newark fans will never be satisfied and they'll always have something to have a gripe with and it just happens at this trade deadline that it was a full blown anger meltdown. What are we doing? We stand note shot. If you look at it like were really were an the Yankees are a really good spot on Yeah these are my guys yeah. These are the guys stick with and it's great for morale and it's great for this but what happens when you bring in Batanes in the seventh and he blows a game because that's what he does and and you had used Chapman for three innings last inning and it's like it's all on Britain for the last three innings of the game or something like that and it's like what other reliever could've helped you know like all we got was Alfredo. Garcia from the rockies won't be up for God knows. How many years like can't believe you're requesting more relievers? The Yankees are full all win ahead in open war for the season that is these psychotic mindset of Yankee fans of like. I need a bullpen that is more than good and has more than depth. I need a bullpen where I look at it. I'm like okay. We're that's like you know. That's game six guy. That's like a you know like yeah. Just just 'cause like that's how that's why we've lost in these heartbreaking playoff games and the astros you know revamp their their their rotation and their guys. It's a product of the Yankees guys when you talked about their potential playoff starters Tanaka packs in her mind. <hes> those guys are GonNa go six innings. If they pitch well red you know whereas all these Astro pitchers your Kohls you're for landers could go full nine and it's like our bullpen is so crucial and yes we do have a book good bullpen bullpen but like crazy shit happens in the playoffs and I know like just that's all that's all that's on the mind of Yankee fans. It's like when Shit hits the fan. We're we're just GONNA look back at this moment this week and be like why don't we do anything yeah so I I want to ask you about that specifically the bullpen but I I just want to point out for all of the twitter mentions and that <hes> you said dodgers fans are bad compared to compare the Yankees Fan love that Gauntlet Craig gains will have dodger Audrey. Fans are extremely extremely passionate but it's like. I want to say like forty five percent fans like if you if you go to dodger game forty five percent of the fans are passionate they watch nearly every regular season game and they're up to date and they keep track. The rest of that percentage is is people who happen to have tickets from a producer agent friend or people oh Tuesday night. It's nice out. Why don't we just go to the game throwing knives? I mean Yankee stadium the product too but I'm just saying the culture is more ingrained like idol. I can't remember the last time I talked dodgers on a casual basis with a stranger year everybody in after me I live in Los Angeles. New York is just a just a big Francesa guy just crushing it every day. Drive time radio. Let's talk about bullpen in the playoffs and then we can get out of here. Okay 'cause obviously the Yankees. Lineup is as good as it's GonNa get as good as you need to win world series or even better they have incredible homerun hitters. You've written on the site a couple times about how they've last year. You predicted them to break the single season home run by Team D._J.. Who can hit just for contact and it adds another layer to team? It's everything you need to to win a world series with Atlanta but the rotation we've we've touched a lot on the bullpen. I think is something that Cashman is saying like we are going to be able to rely on this in the playoffs and you've seen a lot of teams trend towards that you know team like the brewers made it deep in the playoffs last year just by using a guy like Josh Hader a lot and then using their bullpen really effectively and <hes> I think they're manager. Craig counsel great in their shirt. You know you've expressed some reservations about whether boone can do that. I think cashman is probably expecting the front office to just be able to be like you should use this guy in this situation and boon to just be kind of a player manager guy. Do you really trust that bullpen. An entire way through through the playoffs to the world series will work and not at dot in a general sense for at from baseball analysis respect if a with this Yankees team. Do you trust the bullpen take you through rounds one-two-three into the world series honestly no and it's it's one of those things of the regular season is is one thing and the Yankees have a really nice you know setup man the setup man before the setup man you know six seven eight nine guys gray and we have potential potentially coming back but like it comes down to like guys like Auto Vino Britain I I know Britain has some playoff experienced but like the mental aspect respect is is something where you really can never trust any bullpen and chat you could throw Chapman in there and he no he's been ahead case at times. He's had some serious location struggles and you know when that stuff happens. It's like for boon to manage a bullpen throughout a playoff and rely on you know a starting pitcher to go at minimum six so that he can get into the bullpen like one wrong move creates a domino effect a massive ripple effect effect that affects everyone else and then that one thing will snowball into the next game or even to the next series and changes the the way Britain pitches or the way Chattanooga goes about a better and it's like these little things add up and it's just exponentially heightened being in New York and the media media nonstop talking about the bullpen and all these struggles and so that's my main issue like on paper. Can this bullpen carry the Yankees to the world series. Yes yes in theory yes but if you look at all the other stuff and just what we've experienced in the plants in the past I it just that's why are that's why the Yankee fans that's their main frustration and their main worry is like you just can't trust them. They just can't put my full trust into them. Yeah I think it's a real high wire act right 'cause like in the regular season. You know it's like if you think about it sort of like gears and a watch or something like there's three or four years in the watch when you have <hes> star going six or seven and then you have this guy and then the next guy and then chiming closing it the outrage but if you're doing it for an entire one month playoff run where you're really relying on these guys to go to give you six innings the bullpen and total giving you six innings and start adding more gears he start <music> adding more gears one breaks then you lost your and that's kind of what's happened to the Yankees the last few years I still maybe of the mindset and maybe this is because I just I'd trust sabermetrics alive like I'm still of the mindset that like these guys are the best options for this team especially because of the rotation if you're just in Berlin it's like that's maybe one thing. He's an iconic big game pitcher but I don't know man Domingo Herrmann. I'd like him. I like his fifth but he I might not work Eric against the Astros in the A._l.. Agreed and like a pressure cooker situation like what what's his mental capacity like what's his mindset izzy clutch and like you mentioned the thing we're never going to have a pitcher on our starting rotation. Go nine complete game just masterful performance like that's just not going to happen with the pictures on this rotation so it's just a lot of weight and a lot of expectations on a bullpen and so I'm not thrilled you you know I I just don't. I really don't know what to say. It's a real butterfly effect though right because like why don't they have for lender or why don't they have a couple of years ago in the Astros winning got him. I'm like the Astros were desperate to win a world series and guess what it worked in like why and they're still reaping the benefits of that because Rhode Islanders zillow great it was the smartest rate over and over over again. It's still a smart trade. Every year. I saw I saw a tweet today about like this is why the Yankees not getting Corbyn in the off season Cole or coal or any of these guys or Kyko for that matter is like why didn't we get these guys early so that we don't have to deal with this smaller pool of starting pitchers in the trade deadline where people people clearly know that the Yankees need starting pitching pitching and could do and ask for whatever they want knowing that puts the Yankees in top spot like why don't we plan ahead you know I I it's funny. Everyone in New York wants to be Brian Cashman and things they can do cashman does and has all these ideas for them but like that's just the New Yorker and everyone and you know like again I trust him but I would have loved to see seen a starting pitcher added to this rotation that can go eight or nine. <hes> you know all that being said if they get left out of the world series again this year. I'm sure the like they'll find. They'll find some team. That's ready to blow it up like they'll get are on their team the next year and all of this conversation we'll be mood and we'll be like all right that stars back but yeah we'll see I'm I'm genuinely
