"Talent every position he's got an all star line-up out there. He's done everything you want him to do. He's even got the raise paying five million dollars to not as he's blamed for the Yankees. And then watch miss out on, Bumgarner get killed for it. But think about it. He would because that's the one thing he hasn't been able to get. Right. Is that deadline to bring somebody in to put them over the top? And if you think about the Red Sox last year, they went and got a volley of nobody was really saying that, that was going to be a move that one on the World Series. And it was a big part of that he was tremendous and then ver- Lander the year before the Yankees went out. They got Paxton. They brought in habits. They haven't done. Done it. And, but it hasn't been right? Guys knows have been the right guys. You know, it's, it's, it's sunny gray over Burling to me is the one, I think more than anything like that's it. Yeah. Sonny gray move just did not work out. You're not going to get everyone. Right. I know. But he has with the pitching and the deadline deals. When you've seen these other teams that have gone out, and that move has put them over the top of our land or wanted to Houston. Certainly your no doubt and he's pitched as good as he ever has an his career since he's been there. Yeah. I mean you can't see Madison Bumgarner within the twins uniform. Right. And that's wins a ride into an AOL now, having remember the whole nonsense with the ball and McCovey cove last week with, who was that max months. Right with Muncie from the dodgers. And then I watched the press conference afterwards is a little media briefing. He seems like a mid west type guy though, like he might be very happy in Minnesota as opposed to New York. And I know he's in San Francisco. I get it. But I'm I'm joking him in Minnesota could be the perfect fit for him. I don't disagree with that. I'm just from a Yankees perspective, the best pitcher on the market. Can't go to another American League team. It just can't happen. You wanna go to work with what you have in the American League fine running Dame in the World Series. It just you cannot lose whatever it takes. And I don't think that sure is gonna get dealt, not only so I think it's gonna come. I mean Bumgarner is going to be the guy who's their owner GM that came out yesterday or the day before and says, he's got to and we're not doing anything with them, right? Basically said it would have to be franchised, right? Altering, which makes sense the Herschel Walker type of deal. Yeah. And he's also owed so much money, right? At teams are going to pause when they look at that contract and all the deferments, so this is going to be the rallying cry. At least we don't have to worry about it for a couple of months. It's just going to be, you know, now until the end of July thirty first is not going to be the end of August as well. But that's I mean that's going to be the thing that comes up every single day. No doubt, and now I'm not I'm not surprised moves are happening early to. I mean, we're, we're sitting here on June. Eighteenth we already got Encarnacion traded in rumors about Madison Bumgarner to the twins. This stuff is going to be fast and furious because you've got one shot that's it which I like. Right. Yeah. By the way, don't get nuts. He hasn't been traded to the twins. Just yet, and it's really nothing more than a thought. But it's a thought that was the day before. I wouldn't think so when you've got these teams that are in first place or challenging for first place. I think they're all threat to make a move. You're right though. I had not heard that one before I wouldn't get quite grizzlies not John Hayman saying that deal is close zone. It's nothing like that. It is not, although John Heyman did tweet out that the Yankees loves Zack Wheeler, I don't know them as much. Yeah. I mean he's going to be gone guy. You know he gets the base hit and not that we need to talk about them right now. But you get the bay he gets the basic tied the game comes out and is just awful. And the next thing. Yeah. Ro a strike. He's gone. One way. I mean he's gonna he'll get traded. He I think he'll get traded about the at bat to bra with that ending was so horrific. But there was to me not a worse at bat than the about the Brian McCann on four pitches. He never it's Brian McCain throw a strike hundred years old. I mean a four pitch walk than Freeman comes up. He goes to old lace this. I mean come on the bullpen kept the close right? Oh, Jesus Chinese pavilion. Here's another one. Real quick, take a break. Here's another one. What are these guys think whether it's Brody van wagon the Dolton Anaheim that gives Matt Harvey whatever he got. He got twelve million dollars eleven somebody explain to me, why Jerry's familiar or even met Harvey at this stage in his career. Rear? Why are they worth anything? More than the veteran minimum explain that to me, let alone ten and twelve million dollars because here's what I know I can bring up a kid from AA, or AAA that can give me the same crappy performance that these guys are giving. Well, because bullpens have been so bad and someone who's got a track record like familiar when you're putting him in a setup role, you're thinking that he's going to be much better. And all of a sudden look we got a great back into the bullpen. I've got a guy who's he was right at the top of the saves list in Mets history. And it wouldn't with fifty some odd saves last year. I can live with the dias mistake. I'm not gonna call a complete mistake yet because it's only a few months, and he's a young kid. I can deal with that because of how he was a lockdown closer last year. Young kid I get it. And I know why they did that the familiar, one I didn't understand at the time. I didn't know we were going back to that. And not only that to give them what they gave him for. He's not worth two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year right now. Well, the worst part about it is, it's, it's this year, and that it's two more. Dollars a piece, which means that there's no way that they're just moving on DFA in them. There's just no way. That that's three outs. Can you get three algae's hope you can trade them against this? It's gotten to the point now you can trade them. You I, I mean somebody's Qaluza, I trust me. I know what you're saying. I just I think that hopefully he straightens himself out to the point where somebody is so desperate to add to their bullpen that they might actually trade for I'm serious. That's the only that's the best shot you got. It's the best shot. You have if someone actually called for him now they should be fired. He's thrown it an era of eight not disagreeing with you. I'm saying that if he can put together you hope that he can because the season's over, I'm sorry. It's done. But he if he could put them tonight. It's not done yet. Mean giving them tonight he put like two good weeks. And then someone out there is a may be fine cheeses seen from what you've seen do you even think he's capable of that. Right. And I don't of. Just saying, maybe. Richard theorizing. I just don't know that it's possible to seen. Yeah. I mean anything's possible, but yeah, of course, I think you're stuck with them for the next two years. Two and a half year. Jerry's familiar to drew gone. There's a winning combination. God just terrible just pounders pitch. The day before Brooks pounders on Father's Day. But that physique, he can't try them out there. Two days in a row. Still catching his breath, and it is boomer and geo Jerry and four boomer this morning..

And I was more than enough impressed with what they did in their two playoff victories. This say, absolutely awesome. Did a great great job, John and Florence South Carolina joins John you're on the jonky Caja. How are you? Hey, good morning. How you doing today? I stayed in Florence South Carolina. Once when I was a kid driving down. We were driving down four Lauderdale stayed the night at like a Holiday Inn off ninety five. That's the only time. I think I've ever been there. Yeah. Man. It's this like to cut through town when everybody's going to Florida and in New York, this is my what's going on John. Man. I just wanna talk about the Super Bowl like short. It was a Super Bowl, man. The best part about it. Like, I live in South Carolina. And I was in Las Vegas last week watching the Super Bowl at a big ballpark with the free food and drink John, John. Can you tell us where you were what what what I was at? I was at impair at a Paris hotel. Oh, okay. Yes. John. I'm usually there. I'm usually they're Super Bowl weekend. But since doing my net doing the jonky gauge show, I usually do it for Mandalay bay our Super Bowl special and then hang out with Farrell on Friday night. But because the Super Bowl was here in Atlanta. I was back home here. But next year, I'll be back. So may you know, maybe you come on over and see hang out on Saturday morning come on by. 'cause you love the didn't you wasn't Super Bowl weekend. Great man is really great, man. I mean, that's the second time I've done there. And I'm gonna do it again next. She's good. We're going to see your next year. John. You're awesome, buddy. Thanks man Raphael in Vermont joins us Rafael. Good morning. How are you brother? John, man. Let me go really quick. Sean McVeigh is nothing coach Clive in waterboy coach in that game that. Corporately loss and missed that goal is nothing else. But it rich version of general spits general quarterback in. That's okay. Yeah. More of those people tell me this man is from the from the three or four oh miss awards. No. This guy does have nothing to do with with with the school coach because that man is big time. And that man is a little time. What is the way to be fired? I think he knows what he's doing. I thank you for your call. I think he knows what he's doing when you win an NFC championship. You know what you're doing? It doesn't mean that you're a great coach though, he's going to have to come back and prove that in in subsequent years. He lost in his two years in the postseason. He has lost to in Atlanta Falcons team that was a sixth seed at home. As he division champion three seed, and he showed up with that effort in the Super Bowl. I'm a Sean McVay fan. But I'll tell you just gotta prove something it's gotta prove more. All right. I'm very surprised at the amount of people that can't figure out the Harper and Machado drama. Of what's going on this off season and everybody seemed to be baffled and I'm seeing segments on national radio shows television shows where they're trying to figure out what's going on with the Harper and Machado off seasons. What's why is neither one of them signed by now? And I'm telling you, there's two answers to possible answers. And anyone who tells you that they know the answer which one of my two answers is right? Anyone who tells you that they know is lying because they do not know. But there's only two answers that are right. And I know Brian McCain is a big baseball fan. Pushing all the buttons making sure we stay on the air today and the networks have Brian. I'm gonna ask you give me one of the two reasons. Harper and Machado had not signed yet, the financial value. They're being offered is not meeting what they want. Correct. There's one of the answers. There's one of the answers. And I'm gonna ask Anthony piano. Another big baseball fan. Huge baseball fan. The quarterback of this show. Our offensive coordinator the guy who calls the plays in my headset until we shut off his Mike fifteen seconds before we back in the air. Anthony, I ask you. You just heard McCain give you one of the reasons what's the other reason why Machado and Harper may not have signed yet. Well, I mean, what are the reasons? Definitely the fact that one of them doesn't want to sign because the car waiting on each other because one's afraid that if one signs than the agent worry that the other ones can be getting all the attention that afterwards. Okay. And I think that's sort of goes on you, and you and Brian they're on the same page almost the financial value. They both want to have the highest financial value both of their agents went out of the highest financial values. That's sort of the same reason. That's one the other one being the team that has offered them. The most. They wanna leverage that deal to get more. Those are the only two reasons folks. Like, maybe the White Sox deal is the biggest they've been offered. And they don't want to be a white sock or the Phillies deal is the offer. That's the most. And then they are considering maybe maybe I don't want to be a Philly. It is not hard to understand people are getting into conspiracy theories on this people are getting into these guys aren't going to get signed. These guys are gonna get money. Look folks, they haven't lost in these negotiations at all the only people complaining right now heartburn Machado are complaining. Do you think they're on the phones to their agent saying, oh my gosh. We're not signed yet spring training getting ready to open up. I have nowhere to go. You don't think they've had a million conversations like that? They've got a strategy. They've got a plan, and they're not in any there waiting for someone to blink and make them a better financial offer period. They're hoping somebody's going to blink. The teams in major league baseball sent out their trucks this week. So if they're the Yankees and the Mets and the Braves and others Phillies, they send their trucks standard spring training with all the equipment and everything like that. Those trucks went on the road. They've already left. They're heading out to Arizona to. So the dodgers and the giants and the Diamondbacks and they're sending all their stuff to their spring training sites. The teams and their fan bases are getting anxious. These players, they aren't they aren't. Don't worry about it. These guys are going to do just fine. And they're not worried about getting paid. They know they're going to get paid. Maybe not the amount of money. They wanted to get paid. But then they become like every single person in almost every walk of life. Who thinks they should be paid a little more for what they're done for what they do for a living. Except for me. I'm paid very generously. And I appreciate what I'm paid. I'm not sure if you saw this report Jon that Harper. He's a big fan of capillary and the roster that the Phillies have assembled. He was just wondering if the Phillies would be willing to move to another city. I saw that on the according to the onion. Yes. Yes. What though you're not an e-? What I what I would believe is this. And I've said it since the beginning, I'm a Phillies fan. I would like Harper or Machado. I want either one of them, but I want Manny Machado more than Harper. And why because I believe that Manny Machado is more built to be able to handle playing in Philadelphia. Bryce Harper is a guy who has a reputation of being a little sensitive, which is absolutely the worst thing in the world. For someone that's going to play in Philadelphia because I can promise you this. And I don't care what year of his career. It is if Bryce Harper goes on a four year deal six year deal to Philly, whatever it is. Bryce Harper will be loved three or four months of the deal every single year and the fans will ride him when he sucks, and he goes through a three for fifty four streak which by the way by his history in baseball. We know is going to happen. Manny Machado doesn't tend to give you these big like three week periods are so where you just go into a total funk. Manny Machado doesn't do that. Plus, I think finding a corner outfielder with some pop, especially when you have unlimited funds to spend which pretty much the Phillies organization has a ton of money to spend. I think that's a lot easier to find Manny Machado is much more built. I think for that city and understanding that city and being able to handle the price Harper right coming up. Sometimes when you're giving a lot a lot expected of you. And sometimes people can't figure that out second hour, the jonky show comes your way next right here on CBS sports radio. I used to have a sweet tooth had a removed when I was a kid. So what do I.

"Biggest names, it's easy to focus on the shiny toy in the room. Fact of the matter is this you're gonna have your shot against the patriots. If any past Super Bowl tells you you're going to have your shots. But you gotta capitalize. Got it. You must cash in. And how about this for jumpstart you'd better cash in early? Because as we told you before seven of the eight Brady Super Bowl scoreless in the first quarter three total points in eight Super Bowls that numbers ridiculous. For a guy that is his greatest Tom Brady and a coach that is greatest Bill Belichick. That's an absurdly awful number. And just what it doesn't come with a lot of self inflicted wounds. Either. They're not beating themselves. They didn't go out there and those first quarters and throw interceptions fumble. The Paul do terrible things, which makes me think that pill Bill check is so good and Tom Brady. So good. That they decide you know, what? We can win a sixty minute game. But we can just as well when a forty five minute game, and we can just as well when a thirty minute game if it comes down to that. Get them into a fifteen minute game. Their odds down exponentially. You've seen falls come back and snake him. So ally manager twice. And you can throw out the ridiculous nature of twenty eight to three which still to me to this day is a scourge. I mean for these falcon fans down here in Atlanta scourge. It's a wound will never heal. And I really believe when one day if they are lucky enough to win not lucky enough if they're good enough to win a Super Bowl. It's still won't totally take away the pain of twenty eight to three which is just awful. There's been a lot of speculation. And we talked about a little bit earlier in the show today that this could be rob gronkowski's last game. And I said it earlier, and I'll say it again. If it is gronk. Thank you. Because I'm one of those sports fans. I'm one of those guys who always tended to be more of a traditionalist always tend to be a little more button up. The fun that you have brought to the National Football League in an era. Where guys like me had to be converted into having more fun and have more fun with it. And don't be so button up. I love the guys that bring flamboyance and flair to the table and a baseball game. Now, I love it. Love love the young Latin players coming up that upbringing personality and a little swagger to the game. If you'd asked me that five years ago, I didn't. Rob gronkowski is the example of the guy that my daughter hardly false football. She loves her eagles. But doesn't watch the NFL. You know, like a religiously. She doesn't know every she knows gronk. She knows gronk, and she smiles and laughs at his antics. And she thinks he's funny. He relates to people. As much as some will points at gronk being like a man child. How much money he's making for the next generation of players, and you know, much he's shows you about having fun. Every one of us can learn a little bit from rob gronkowski. You can learn a little bit about just enjoying life and enjoying yourself. When you're on your job. I know that I've learned working with shack. I've never seen someone. I'd never known an individual my entire life more than Shaquille O'Neal on a daily basis. You see it on TV, you sit other places. He's a joyous guy. And he's helped me be more joyous. We all the especially after this whining about the NFC in the AFC championship games. We all need to get back to the time. And Tom talked about it earlier. Our producer today about the idea of being more having a little more fun. With sports sports is supposed to be fun. Supposed to be a real fun time. Unfortunately, for many it doesn't come to that. We don't end up being the the fun police. We are we end up being the fun. Police far too often. All right one thing. I'll say about this before it gets to my pick the Super Bowl fifty three Super Bowl fifty two Super Bowl fifty one. I think it shows you just recent history. You don't have to be a great team. To win a championship. You don't even have to have a spectacular youth of a team. So when a championship. But you better be able to handle adversity. You better be able to overcome injuries. You better be able to find the common denominator of of strategy meets skill meets opportunity to win a championship. The look at these matchups. This isn't the best patriots team by far not the best patriots team. They've ever brought to a Super Bowl. But there there again, the Rams anybody calling them a great team. Lead offense. But at the Rams at great team last year's eagles. Great team. No, I'm an eagles fan. Great patriots last year. Nope. I think we'll patriots last year a little better than this year. A little better just a bit. The falcons couple of years ago. Great team. Great offense, historically, great offense. One of the best eight regular-season offense has ever. You. Don't have to be a great team to win a championship. Not anymore. To be perfect to win a Super Bowl. Both teams. Gotta remember that tomorrow as they face off on the field, and I'll say right here. Couple of years ago. I told you to take the falcons and the points. I never thought that there'd be a twenty eight to three lead and the blown leading the patriots winning. But you would have won. You would have the opportunity to win. And then they fell apart last year. I told you all along I didn't I told you take the points. I told you was going to win the game. They'll take the points. I will tell you this year to lay the points. The better football team. I think the patriots are the team more likely to not have a meltdown moment and the NFC title game scared me with the Rams at the beginning of that game. Tom Brady is amazing. But boy does he have a lot of amazing towns around him, and aren't they well coached and aren't they smart, and those drives at the end and the beginning of that Kansas City game to me were jaw-dropping in modern day football. With the precise nature the discipline. The calm the dedication to the game plan. Patriot fans, you're spoiled rotten. And I think you're going to be spoiled rotten again, I think you're winning Super Bowl fifty three. I will give the patriots a thirty four twenty four victory. So I guess that means I'm saying fifty eight. Thirty four twenty four. Which right around that over under number. So I would tell you lay the points with the patriots. And they're gonna end up winning the Super Bowl. And if gronk says goodbye. I'm gonna tear up a little bit. Gotta tell you. That's here up. We need more fun like him. Billy great job today. Run on the board for the second half of the show. Brian mccain. You're awesome too..

"I'm glad to see the Anthony and Brian McCain. We're giving me a little bit. They were telling me about that great phantom of the New York. Islanders going on right now. So everybody or islander fans again guys up in New York, the hours they have fans again, I'm a ranger fan. First of all, I know. But you're telling me about the outer fancy, so they're back. They're not a bad fan base. I don't know. They never left. They never left to travel to Brooklyn whereas nowhere near their fan base. Okay. Yeah. It's just it's unbelievable moved into ranger territory. I'm just saying I'm just saying. So wait a minute you they have on this. But if the team is not good people do not catch. It goes everywhere. You think it's like you because you believe that. Absolutely. If you believe if the team's not good, the people do not show up that goes for every team in every sport. That's how bad how bad of the cubs. Tell me about the cubs. Tell me about it. Tell me tell me about the New York Giants. They told me about the Philadelphia. Eagles giant stadium was empty at the end of the year. They told me about if you're talking about a game where somebody doesn't show for tickets overall the season. That's not the case. That is not true. I'm looking at numbers right here through the turnstiles giants attendance this year. Giant through the turnstiles. They had around seven out of every hundred seats six out of every hundred seats six not filled. Tickets were sold. So you're talking about like ninety four percent of the people are coming to tickets stop it with this. Guess what the talking point? And I get it. If a product sucks. Nobody has to buy it. But I don't don't give me the well. You know, this goes for every fan base. No, it doesn't. It doesn't go for every fan base. Football's a hard comparison, John because. Okay, tickets boy, okay. I'll give you the the Lakers. You can't compare a brand like the late. You you literally have a excuse for everything you've got an excuse for everything how about cubs and cardinals in baseball. They're both legendary you. Okay. So there's an excuse for them too. So in other words, empty in the early two thousands empty. Yes. No bed and stuff. And seventy eight Brickley was empty. Wrigley's not empty Wrigley is not empty compared to other franchises in major league baseball. That is absolutely ridiculous. It's not empty. You. Don't see the it's not like city field when the Mets suck. It's not like that. You've got you. You have an there's an I swear to you have an excuse forever. What year were you talking about where Wrigley was empty? Two thousand eight Wrigley field two thousand seven Wrigley field. It's okay. That totally empty 'cause they were six than attendance in two thousand five. Okay. Let me just I'm just going to try to get this to you. Because you did say two thousand and eight so I wanna give you credit for that. They were six than attendance in two thousand six. They were six that attendance in two thousand seven you're not in a good streak here McCain, they were seventh in attendance. You're right. They sought Wrigley was empty in two thousand eight you're going by percentages, certainly one of the low ninety nine percent of the seats were tall sold. You're out of your mind. You're making a dumb argument. Brian. You're making a dumb argument without facts to back it up. They were seventh in attendance the year. You said the Wrigley was empty. That's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. You gotta do this. You're going to be a brilliant host one day. I swear to you swear. But you got you got you got to have some facts to back it up. They were seventh and attendance the year you claim they're building was empty, by the way, they went back up to six the next year in two thousand and nine they went to seventh again, they dropped down in two thousand ten you're being ridiculous on these things. Numbers of seats sold or percentages of the stadium being Filc. Ziprecruiter sent argument because Wrigley field holds a lower capacity than any other state. Doesn't matter. If ninety nine percent of your siltser shoulders because you're selling less Ryan. It doesn't matter if you're sewing if ninety nine percents of the tickets that are available to be sold because you use the same argument on the on the New York Islanders they were. So in seventy seven seventy seven percent of their seats seventy four percent of their seats seventy five percent of their seats. So one out of every four seats wasn't bought. So in one of the smallest capacities in the NHL. You can't use it one is an excuse. And then try to spin it the other way, you can't you can't you gotta come prepared. You can't come to a battle of wits on armed. You gotta be able to do this thing. Jason in Louisiana joins us. Jason excuse us for getting fired up here on the show. We have a very talented crew that likes to spell. We have fun. What's going on? Y'all still every time you're on the air. So thank you. Jason. I appreciate that. I'm on my way to game in New Orleans. Gotta yes, sir. And I'm jealous. I'm jealous. I would love to be there today. I'll tell you what it's going to be rocking. Drew brees. Sean Payton have an answer always against every single thing. You know, especially in the most unstable circumstances. And that's why I have confidence. It just seems like every aspect of the game. You know, when you break it down to the runs the route. It just seems like everything hit Sittard, and they always have a good handle on the other teams tendencies, you know. I just think at the end of the day. They could always make the adjustments on the fly create the nets that they like low any exploited mid snatches inches. Take advantage of everything. As of today. I think against the Rams they just have the better quarterback in the better coach shaking just guess policy getter engine and just make it work at the end of the day. So I'm not I'm I'm telling you this. I'm going to give the better coach by pedigree. But that's only because of the fact that I haven't seen enough. Like I haven't seen enough of Sean McVay yet. And I appreciate your call have fun today. It's going to be crazy party in the by you. It is going to be a crazy party down there today. And it is ridiculous. That stadium. When it gets loud a patron in there twice. And when the noise starts to bother you. When you're in a game with the noise starts to actually like ringing your ears. That's when you know, the fans are making an impact. Now, the dome helps the dome helps but wow. It's gonna be wild today. Savant. Georgia's in North Carolina survive. How are you this morning? Good morning, sir. I am looking forward. First of all always to you on a Sunday morning. Thank you very much for that. Appreciate that. Thank you. I think that two teams are going to win today. Really tell me why. Okay. The Rams I think it could be the birth of the golf, you know, against you know, to pass on the torch. Okay. Them from Bella check and Brady, but listen to this. Now, remember Wendy pathetic Redskins would play the New Orleans Saints with McVeigh as offensive coordinator. We had very good games with Kirk cousins. We scored crazy, man. Yeah. You did. Yes. So I think that McVeigh will definitely score plenty against New Orleans. So that's why I see that they could win this game. Do you realize Savan? Now, you had how many head coaches did you have on that Redskins staff now coach at one time. Flirt, you had McVeigh who had a cow Shanahan yet. Well, of course. Yeah. The shanahan's. I mean, seriously, you had you guys have had a lot of really good coaches in house that it went on. I don't know about Cal Shanahan yet is a head coach. But I'm going to start to judge him when he actually has a quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo be back next year. I'll start to judge them then. But wow, I mean, you guys have had some talent in that building. Yes. Well, they were regret losing the Shanahan's at the, you know, when the when the owner chose RG three over the Shanahan coach that ruined us because it would have been Shanahan with Kirk cousins. And that would have been the best combination. But now everything's all screwed up. And that's for another day as far as the AFC is concerned. Yeah. Can't tell me for one second that you think Andy Reid in the playoffs is going out. Coach Bela check. Well, I would you know, what I the only reason why I say to you the pump the brakes on that is Andy Reid one of his proteges. Manage to Alcocer Bill Belichick last year. In the Super Bowl on the biggest stage. And so by you know, leading up to that Super Bowl everybody in their brother called up to this radio show and told me that Doug Peterson had no chance. Towel coach Brady. Outwit brady. And so that's the only reason I say to you. Andy Reid is the guy who trained Doug Peterson. So if Doug Peterson can I think Doug Peterson it and and in a forty three forty game earlier this year by these two teams, it wasn't like Bill Belichick outcoached Andy Reid. Remember when I'm thinking, I'll let you go was that we all think San Diego's I do last weekend. I thought they'd keep it close. And and I and I said last week on the show. I said New England was going to squeak out a victory, but I took San Diego the points. And I told you win by field goal boy that was wrong by the end of the first quarter. Oh, they did keep that in mind. All right. It looks good until they get hit in the mouth by the New England Patriots. Nice about appreciate it. I I I hate. Respecting the patriots as much as I do. I'm just being honest. I just they are. I don't like rooting for. You know? I wanna see great games. Wanna see these great games today? But you just you see Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. And you just say man, this has been two decades of just really, and it is dominant. And I don't care that they've lost three Super Bowls. I don't care. I don't care about that. How much would any other franchise wish that they sniffed this run that the patriots had half the run that this patriots team has head? Giant fans. Celebrate having to good month and a half. In the past twenty years. With Eli manning they celebrated like they were and they were really good runs. And I respect the hell out of the runs that they went on. But those were two good runs where pretty pretty average football teams went on runs. The patriots just sustained excellence, and it helps a bit that the dolphins stink. The jets stink. The Bill stink that certainly has contributed to their cause. And being able to win these games. Absolutely contributes to it. Tyler here is very bad at Mr. McCain. Here's a thirty one year corporate season ticket holder for the cubs. And he said yes, there are years where the cubs have swath of empty seats. He said, but as a corporate season ticket holder for thirty one years, I can assure you Wrigley field's never empty unless the weather conditions. Just tell you you can't sit outside, and it's also a tourist attraction to it is the questions is, but it's never empty. He's saying it's the only reason it's an that you ever see an empty game at Wrigley are the conditions. Okay. When I find the empty picture can you make it your new batter on Twitter? No. Because it doesn't it doesn't hold. You're taking the anomaly, you're not taking the fact you've already been schooled back to the drawing board. We hey coming up cheaters. Well, if.

"And Brian McCain. We're giving me a little bit. They were telling me about that great phantom of the New York. Islanders going on right now. So everybody Rylander fans again guys up in New York the hours their fans again, I'm a ranger fan. First of all, I know. But you're telling me about the outer fancy, so they're back. They're not a bad fan base. Never left. They never left island to travel to Brooklyn. Where's nowhere near their fan base? Okay. Yeah. It's it's it's unbelievable moved into the ranger territory. I'm just saying I'm just saying you, so wait a minute you they have on this. But if the team was not good people do not catch. It goes everywhere. You think it's like you because you believe that. I absolutely if you believe if the teams out good, the people do not show up that goes for every team in every sport. That's how bad how bad of the cubs. Tell me about the cubs. Tell me tell me about the New York Giants. They told me about the Philadelphia. Eagles giant stadium was empty at the end of the year. They told me about if you're talking about a game where somebody doesn't show for tickets overall the season. That's not the case. That is not true. I'm looking at numbers right here through the turnstiles giants attendance this year. Giant through the turnstiles. They had around seven out of every hundred seats six out of every hundred seats six not filled. Tickets were sold. So you're talking about like ninety four percent of the people are coming to tickets stop it with this. Guess what the talking point? And I get it. If a product sucks. Nobody has to buy it. But I don't don't give me the well. You know, this goes for every fan base. No, it doesn't. It doesn't go for every fan base. Football's a hard comparison, John because there's okay tickets board. Okay. I'll give you the the Lakers. You can't compare a brand like the lake. You have an air. You literally had excuse for everything you've got an excuse for everything. How about cubs and cardinals baseball. They're both legendary. Okay..

"Mckay. She did a great job all day. I'm not sure Peterhof it's going to be able to replace it. But of course, Tom Lou our has done a fantastic job all day. I gotta hand it a couple of years ago. I went today. Queens baseball convention. They lost themselves in queens convention in January, and they were so desperate for people. They wanted me to come as a celebrity now big time they got Donald strawberry today at crane pool today at Gardo Alphonso one of my favorites. So if you're the area go check it out one of the guys who's done a few of the wrestling podcast with me as we call them is hosting the pods. Once you're out there, tell them. Hello. And have a good time out there as it warms you up for the baseball season because we're not that far away. Usually once the Super Bowl comes. And goes you really start to think that spring training is around the corner. And there'll be some high hopes for the two baseball teams. I really think the Yankees have passed the Red Sox, despite the fact that I would have certainly gone about the off season differently. As far as making it more of a priority on acquiring left handed bat, you could put the ball in play Michael Brantley. Daniel Murphy top guys they have maintained their bullpen. Way. I was surprised about bringing back. Zach Britton is such a huge, and I would call it in addition in this regard didn't acquire them too late in the season. He was coming off that twenty Killys injury. And so now you've got Britain for a full season to go along with Dell in a contract year, aroldis Chapman sort of in a contract year because of a mistake, and this is the year where Chapin could actually opt out after this season. Chad green and year number three, and he certainly has proven to be somewhat to really good reliable reliever. You get Britain back at Alabama vino who you hope can at least replicate what he did in the first part of last year. So their bullpen is as good if not better than a year ago. Their starting pitching is better simply by bringing in James Paxton and by similarly Britain having Jay for a full year. And offensively look there are questions about Andrew Hall replicating what he did last year. Same thing for labor Torres not having DD gregorious all negative will Larry Hicks. Do he's had a tough time staying healthy throughout his career. But you hope era judge can stay healthy. Unlike last year Giancarlo is more comfortable in year, two in New York. And you got him expect Gary Sanchez is going to be better. But the real reason why I think the past the Red Sox is because the Boston Red Sox are the same. And that's good offensively. Not as good with the pitching, which is only getting older. Chris sale had a very tough time. Staying healthy last year. Even though he was ridiculously good in the first half of the the guy barely pitched in the second half of the year. David price is going to be thirty three poor Selo is very up and down. I do not trust the as great as he was in the playoffs. And obviously the bullpen which they will make a move on. Don't get me wrong. I don't believe that this heath Embry, Matt bars. Ryan raise your bullpen is going to be what we see on opening day. But then the other thing is this. I just have a very difficult time as confident as Alex core is that they're going to be able to repeat the magic of last year. One hundred eight games or even won a hundred games. So from that standpoint it look a year ago. I thought the Yankees and Red Sox were even that was my take a year ago at this time. I thought we were going to have an all time classic Pettit. Raise was gonna be tooth and nail didn't work out that way, I was wrong. The Red Sox obviously better than I thought. In fact, the Yankees were better than I thought they were one hundred games that common but from the negative and positive of looking at your rivals in the American League. It's the Orioles are going to have another very long season. The Blue Jays will probably lose more games than they win. I think the raise about a sneaky good off season. And that's coming off a surprise year last year. And I think the Red Sox are gonna have just an incredibly difficult time for obvious reasons. Even coming close to what they did a year ago. So if you're a Yankee fan despite maybe being underwhelmed about what they've done offense. I think you've gained ground in the American League east, the editor least is. I mean there couldn't be anymore. TVD that what the heck's going to happen with Bryce Harper and Manny Machado and Dallas kaikal and Craig kimbrel who the Phillies may be on all of them. And obviously the factor of Bryce going back to Washington, and maybe the Braves go out and make another movie struck early member they signed Josh Donaldson early on they brought in Brian McCain early on and they're trying to build off. What was a good young surprising year a year ago? I'm very skeptical about Atlanta starting with the pitching one through twelve not just their rotation. They got a great year last year at animal Sanchez. You talk about coming out of nowhere is Mike Fulton could build off what he did last year. How good is Sean new cups? I got plenty of questions about Atlanta. But it's tough the judge the NFL east because the Phillies may sign Manny Machado Dallas Craig kimbrel. And if they do all of that. Well, you're looking at the National League east a little bit differently slightly differently. Toll free number is eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six Stewart in Rigo Parque, Stewart, Evan how you excellent haven't spoken to you in a while. Good good. It's a really tight of your net fan. Oh, yes. I wanted to to players on the team and their future going forward. I I wanna ask you this jet have broken EPA. Tommy. Yes. Yes. He's already been brainwashed. With all the teams that I root for. Yes. All right. Good good. Now, I truly believe before I get into the to that players and their future. I truly believe at this point in time, we are alive or Katie signing away from being obvious championship contender. They would be our, you know, Gary Carter bait the Bush without a doubt that I would. But I think that's a big leap. I mean acquiring a superstar player and expecting them to walk through the door. I still think despite this great success is a long shot. But sure if in this world, Kawhi Leonard who would be my number one choice walk through that door. Yeah. I think they'd be competing with anybody. Absolutely. Or katie. I'll take either one. Yeah. Yeah. Of course. Now the two plays. I wanted to scratching their future going forward. I don't even know if they have future number one, Ron they Hollis Jefferson. He does not have a future and the other one is Allan crab now he's going to exercise contract next year. Right. I mean, so what I mean where where are his minutes? Why would you take away from? Stewart both of them. Do not have future is here. Now couple of things run day Hollis Jefferson being healthy, which he got hurt again last night. Hopefully, it's not that serious. They need his body. They need his defense. He just doesn't fit this team overall. He hurts the floor spacing. He's not developed three point shot. And he's a restricted free agent at the end of the year. So from a business side of things he's just not going to be back there clear focus next year, if they're not landing. One of the superstar free agents is to get a stretch for is to get Tobias Harris who would be an outstanding federal even trading for Aaron Gordon he'd be a great fit. So it's easy with Ron date. He still useful player on this roster. He's still important player on this roster next year. He will not be on this team. That's number one. Number two. You brought up. The one mistake that Sean marks mate, and that was bringing Allen crabs contract offering him the offer sheet like he did with Tyler Johnson. Like he did with auto Puerto. That's one thing after. That team matches like all three teams did with those three players. I mentioned to bring him back has turned out to be a waste and is hurt. Their ability to have even more cap space a year from now so they have two options with Alan cramp. Number one may not seem very appealing and right now to me it's not that appealing because I'm not focused on chasing free agents. And that's the package. Allen crab with a first round pick. Not there's probably Denver's and get rid of them. That's how you get rid of bad contracts you package it with a pick. That's how Sean marks has been able to acquire first round picks over the last years after Billy king. Basically, you know, got rid of the cupboard. The other option is just let it eventually go away and buy them out maybe sometime next year. But Allen crab not going to be a big part of this team next year. I don't know where those minutes are coming from like you said, but as far as dreaming about Leonard and Kevin Durant. And if you want to dream about Jimmy Butler, I prefer not to, but I guess you could if you so choose. Yeah. I think that's what the nets are probably missing. But right now, the Angelo Russell last night and Spencer Dinwiddie, basically every night they've got a fairly good job of stepping into that give me the ball in a big Mormon Connor role. I don't know what the heck is going through the mind of a lead free agents. And I gotta tell you right now. I don't care because right now when I'd be focused on is the now this is a now in future team. But the right now is they're sixteen and five in the last twenty one games and they've beaten some damn good teams to get there. That's the now the now is the blossoming of de ngelo Russell. The now is Spencer Dinwiddie who overcame that slump a five games to respond with a tremendous effort in the final few minutes against Houston. And even last night. To win an NBA championship. Which obviously they're not at the spite sixteen and five a month that delusional. You're right. This is a star driven league. And the one thing I said earlier this season about the nets and the Knicks is that winning matters. We live in a time in which it's almost cool to lose to tank to get the next star. And I understand the appeal of that even though the history of the NBA over the last ten years has shown you that it does not work. There is zero evidence that tanking works. The only team you could try to site is Philadelphia and my counter to that would be a day tank for a long time and failed half the times, they tanked and be they've won anything yet. That'd be my counter to Philadelphia. But I did that number about Anthony Davis. The pelicans one out on Anthony Davis. He's been the best lottery pick maybe over the last decade. What the heck if they want? So it helps to get great players then you've got to build around the. But why winning matters is? I don't believe that free agents are attracted by draft picks. I don't believe they're attracted by that. I think they're attracted by winning. Now are the nets doing enough winning to attract big friends? I have no idea. I'm certainly not banking on it. And that's why Lougee during one of the break said to me who just talking about. Kevin Durant about where he's going to go. I think it started Lou we were talking about the warriors. How good they are. And how no one's gonna stop him. Which is not a surprise boogie cousins came back last night. How about his debut right out of the gate him and Durant on the picket role with the big slam? It was like you. Gotta be kidding me. The good win the NBA championship. And nobody in the west is gonna put up a fight. I'm sorry. I think their biggest fight will come. In the NBA finals by their Milwaukee your Toronto we'll see about Boston. That's my prediction. We'll see. But Leuke said very casually. Well, this is it for them. And I said, well, why is that? I think the ranch gonna leave and that's a very popular belief, and maybe he will leave. But I don't know where he's going to go. Weary of Kevin Durant is leaving the warriors because he wants his own team. You know, all I've heard I've heard the clippers, and I've heard the Knicks, and I would say why would he go to the clippers and the Knicks and leave the NBA championship haven. That's Golden State. You're going to go to a knick team. That's gonna lose sixty games. That's going to sell you on a player. That's missed the entire year and a draft pick and Kevin Knox and the clippers. I gotta tell you knick fans have about the complementary so calm down here. If you thought I just ripped you. I think the Knicks are more appealing than the clippers what's appealing about the clippers their best players or free agents who's a clippers best player. But I'll tell you who it is. It's still bias Harris. He's a free agent their their whole plan is to basically say, hey, coli and Durant come here. Do we even know if Durant wanna play with each other? And why would they why would Durant wanna leave one super team to just form another? I don't buy the clippers. I'm sorry. Maybe I'll be wrong about that. Because I don't know what. Kevin Durant wants maybe just wants to go there because of the weather. I don't know. But I just I have a tough time buying this clipper thing about oh, they're so appealing. I think the Knicks are more appealing than the clippers. Let's take a break. I'm about the cough, and we'll come back with more your calls..

We haven't seen out of all of all for a generation the Cowboys have been losing twenty th United seriously. When we were three and five we lost the way that the Rams beat us. They seek out the game. And they beat us with with that. They haven't been able to coach your way out of that. He gets back the entice Jason Garrett. It's you you you do realize this because somebody in Dallas will do you know that everybody else around that the NFC east is saying please keep him on the job. Is there an extension at all? We've been seeing this for the past almost picking my gosh Garrett he'd been there way Phillips like we've been seeing the same offense and there's been zero positive zero.

What's fade out of the money? So I want people to do anything. Just slap in the rain into it, boss. They ran into a buzzsaw last night. Yeah. I'm not I'm not selling. I'm not selling Dak Prescott Scott the stock this morning. If you if you give Dak Prescott if his offensive line plays. They're game that they usually play. They didn't last night if they play their usual game. He's got a chance to win that game in the fourth quarter. I'm not I'm not bagging on. It's so easy to bag on tack Prescott. And I'm not that's why that's why I like your apple because I had an argument with the guy before you because he was talking about like, oh how bad I'm like. No. Good. Who is was. Saint louis.

You shouldn't be in a road game in the NFC divisional round. You shouldn't be nine and seven sneaking into the playoffs. It's ridiculous. The eagles are playing with house money. I'm like what house money they've underachieved this year period. And yes, they had injuries and stuff. We'll get into it. Plus can the oldest quarterback match up ever be entertaining?
