"Day for the Mets and Yankees Brody van wagon and doing essentially nothing at the trade deadline. I mean, yeah, he brought in three players, but really, who cares? Honestly. The team is not very good. Those guys are going to make much of an impact. Bring Todd Frazier Brack back is more of a punch line than anything else that I know. He's a great guy, and I know he's a local Toms River guy in Little League World Series and everything else that you're going to hear with Todd Frazier every time he comes to the plate. Ah, but he is someone that doesn't necessarily produce at the level that you need. And I know that why he's here because he's going to fill a role because JD Davis seems to be Going on injured list for maybe longer than the Mets wanted him to. So you have that He's played essentially every day for Texas so far this year, but You know, even Louise RoHaas said it himself last night or yesterday afternoon after the game, he said, it feels like time is running out is team's final moment of the season. It feels like time is because because it is on as as for the Yankees, they will make the playoffs. It's really where these guys that are not With the team right now are when they get into the playoffs, meaning everybody who's injured. Where are they in their injury journey By the time that the playoffs start, is Aaron Judge going to come back and be Someone who was dominating baseball. It was early in the season, or is he going to be a non factor? Is Giancarlo Stanton going to someone you can actually fear in a lineup, or is he just going to be a walking muscle pole? And these are the questions that we're not going to know The answer Still, until we get To that point. I want to go to Anthony in Westchester. Quickly. What's going on, Anthony? Hey, what's going on Jail to think, man. I was thinking me and my son will watch and screaming head all nine years old, screaming out of what's going on. Listen, I think Garret is phenomenal. I just think you know, having a baby. Maybe gonna morph alot they like and all the rest. Maybe Stone's rippin off a little bit. I mean, come on, guys, you know, give the guy a break. He is going to be all right. He's gonna pull through. And the second thing I want to tell Ugo I got a bulldog and he loved to attack my wife whenever she put the garbage Hagen really nominal it on when I hear you talk about your bowl, but that's why I think they're talking about mine. It's amazing well, and it makes me feel a hell of a lot better if people miss that. Initial conversation Every time I take the garbage out the bulldog attacks it is if it is some sort of monster that is coming from my life, And when my wife takes the garbage out, for whatever reason, nothing happens. I think I don't know She's just overly protective of me. The baby thing. I don't want it. I I don't want to dismiss it because I have ever done having gone through having a newborn on being fortunate to have that time, because I mean, at the time you're thinking Oh, my goodness. This is this is different. This is new, but I mean, it's obviously the greatest gift you could possibly have. It changes your life. It does, And he's never had to deal with that. I'm sure he wants to be active. I sure he doesn't want to. Disappear and go into another room and never get up and help. And I mean that could maybe I don't want to dismiss it. I mean, it could be a different adjustment for him. Do I think that he's a having problems giving up home runs? Because he has a baby? No, but I mean, it is part of his story, right? I mean, it is. So it's just one of those things that I used to totally dismiss before I had a child of my own. And now understanding everything that goes into that It wasn't a milder man Shoes. All right, right, Of course. Yeah, changes perspective, sometimes. You know, A friend of mine told me yesterday that That his wife was pregnant. I actually felt good for him, and I had to tell him that I felt good for him. Which I myself l A. You had to tell him why. I don't know. This is what I want to run this by you, okay? I want to run this by and jog my memory with this baby call, So I felt the need to tell him that I was genuinely happy for him, as opposed to just saying I'm happy For you guys and everything. Congratulations. I had to go the extra mile to say. You know, I'm not normally happy. For other people, situations But for you, I'm especially happy like I felt like I had to say that now. Is he a skeptical person? Is he someone that's not thrilled? The baby's coming the No, No, No, he's no here. No, no, no, They know he's absolutely thrilled that the baby's coming But I guess it was a Mauritz more looking to my personality and the fact that I had to make sure that he really knew I got I wasn't just paying lip service. How long? How long have you known this guy? Ah, about 10 years, Okay? Yeah, Yeah. I get eagle in the extra mile. Make sure that you're on board. I support you. It's going to be great. First gig for him. Yes, yes. So And that's another thing. A reason why I felt extra great for him. Yeah, well, I know what you've become the you become the veteran, probably in your circle of friends. I mean, especially if you guys were the ones that the first kid You know, it's almost like you know for us, but I think I want to say we might have been the first for the circle of friends that we have with Matthew. And then so you know, a lot of people would ask you. Would you do this? How is this like and you almost feel like we were just trying to figure out like everybody else. S O. Perhaps him hearing that from you gives him a boost of confidence now. Yeah, maybe when I was excited, but I just feel like there's a lot of times that I'm telling people. Hey, congrats on stuff for not just necessarily about babies or thinks about things in life like a, You know, great job. I don't really care. No, But I say that because that's the thing you have to say. That's the whole thing about small talk. That's just so brutal. Yeah. Have you been? How's the family? If you know if you cared, you'd probably calm or off them. You know, it's it's so true or ask once in a while. I am. I'm jealous off the people that Genuinely are interested in everybody that they come across and there are people like that. There really are people like that and you find out about those people. Unfortunately, when they pass away, that's when you find out about how great somebody is. Because then they everybody comes through with these experiences this and that they tell the story. Sometimes they don't tell the stories when the people are alive, and that's when you find out about sure there are there's absolutely people like that. I've come across a few where I feel like I just met this person. They don't need to care about me. But what they do, right? Or at least they fake it. Really well, yes, I know. I mean, I know it. I feel like I can sniff out the fraud. No In that situation, I really do. I really like there's people that really look In your eyes and listen, and there's others at last, your question and their eyes are darting and the eyes are above your head looking beyond you did well to talkto or down at the phone or whatever's going on. It's so Have you ever been out dinner with someone or lunch or wherever where they can't get their eyes off the phone, And the conversation is just pointless. Oh, yeah, 100% pointless. There's nothing worse. It's horrible Liar. So that's why when we used to drive in together, you know as quirky of a friend, colleague, whatever type of relationship you want to call it..

Carlos Beltran Out as Mets Manager After Astros' Cheating Scandal

Carlos Beltran Out as Mets Manager After Astros' Cheating Scandal

"We got the news about one o'clock today that yet. Another person untied to the Houston Astros. Cheating scandal has lost his job. Carlos Beltran recently hired by the mets to be there next managers out of his job before even having having a meeting in spring training. That's because he was named in. The Commissioner's report released the other day for his role in the Astros signed stealing scandal of two thousand seventeen eighteen Beltran and the mets both indicated. Today that this was a mutual decision but I suspect that a week or two weeks ago even those with knowledge of the science dealing details from two thousand in seventeen believed that Houston. GM Jeff Luneau Astros Manager Aj. Hinch Red Sox manager Alex Cora now Carlos Beltran would still have have their jobs and they're all out and that's where we are probably Vera covers baseball for ESPN. She knows. Carlos Beltran now score very well Marley. How you doing? It's been a crazy week. I think crazy is a very good adjective buster special like no that totally can managers. Were highly touted. I don't have a job today. Unbelievable let's let's start with Carlos Beltran. That is the the most recent news. I'm going to also ask you about Alex. Corsie is we go forward but but I about Carlos. I thought that when the mets didn't put out a statement immediately on Monday evening after the Commissioner's report came out out the fact that the mets didn't come out right away and have a statement from Jeff Wilpon from Brody Bandwagon. And saying this is our guy. Carlos Beltran is our manager edger. And that's what we're going to do moving forward because what was in the report involved the Houston Astros in two thousand seventeen. The commissioners made it clear that Carlos this is not going to be disciplined for his role in that because he's the player at that time but the fact that they didn't put out that statement on Monday and then dragged out into Tuesday day and then Wednesday. You could see that the mets they were weighing their options and just as someone who covered the mets back in one thousand nine hundred seven having worked in New York market for a long. I've never seen an organization that is more affected by public opinion than the mets. And I thought Yep that he at some point. They're going to let him go. What what did you think absolutely couldn't agree more with what you said? And not only that the fact that you know one of the reasons why they hired Beltran was because it was excellent in publicity. Ns S you. And I know spending so much time covering baseball in New York. The mets have failed many times on the PR department. And this would hiring hiring Carlos Beltran. They bought themselves all this goodwill right the return of the prodigal son with everything that had happened when he had left the comments of the Wilpon when he used to be a you know. Oh a mets player. Everything gets kind of water under the bridge. There's just you know one of the most impressive press conferences that I have attended you know at city field so it was just as big. Pr Moment and then all of a sudden I agree with you. They got swayed by public opinion. And one of the things that Carlos Beltran and as you mentioned before which is important you state. The aren't family our friends of mine. So my activity here Sometimes can be a little bit swayed but the point is that can handle the media. He's been you know he was a player for twenty a years worked on a capacity assistant with the Yankees and so on and I feel that this was in my opinion. Definitely a wilpon decision muster. Oh No no question. The way this was described I think Carlos but at a statement they talked about a mutual decision. No way like this like Carlos I think absolutely was set on going forward but they say as all the conversation was taking place in New York to columnists were were taking aim at this and they are asking questions. Well what. What did the mets ask Carlos about? After the first athletic story came out about the signed stealing. And how would the mets feel about Carlos not having credibility with the media and it became a real hot topic on talk radio here and one stat ball started rolling downhill and then Aj hinch losses job and Jeff Luna lost his job and Alex. Cora lost his job. There was no way the mets leadership was going to stand in the way of that momentum and stand up and say in the past it was in the past which by the way is what Brody van wagon and said back in November. He kind of indicated like well. That's not really a mets problem. That's an astros throws problem. But their their their words their tone definitely changes week the only aspect that I can you know Ah have gone in this process. One of the things were Carlos may have had some input. Devil's advocate here. Is that one of the things that Carlos Beltran they'll turn and and you and I have covered a great deal of is the fact that he does not like off. The field distractions buster. And I think at that is the part or they'll go. You know what this is the right decision. He is one of those guys that likes to talk baseball. I remember what it was like the whole scandal with Iran in the Yankees Yankees Carlos Beltran was part of the Yankees Organization at the time as a player and he refused to engage in sort of those conversations so there is an aspect of how much he doesn't like the distraction and then that part certainly you know he could have had any input on but I I agree with you. This isn't you know the mets founded selves in an island. Having to make a decision and they got swayed by Jim Crane did and obviously you know what the Boston Red Sox decided to do. After the imposition of a penalty suspension to Alex Score. So let's breakdown go by the way. Yeah exactly breakout some other elements of this What do you think the mets miss out on? Not Having Carlos Beltran altron their manager. Carlos Beltran is an excellent leader. And I think that's one of those things that has been a little bit missing the New York Mets Organization. He drives arrives you. He's one of those guys that inspires others other players and he also galvanizes clubhouses right. He he was the player for the day when he was with the Yankees. Hanky along with Andrew Miller he always has always been so well spoken and he crosses that kind of you know barrier quote Unquote Latino players. And you know the players that are not Latino and I felt that he could galvanize that clubhouse very very well and I think that's the number one thing that the mets are going to miss out on and this is a man who obviously has left the game for a long time doesn't need the money this isn't right and it was honestly doing this job because he truly wanted to make an impact in organization that really has lost their way a little bit in the last couple of years so I think it's a huge loss. So they mess. We're GONNA do not have Carlos Beltran but I do understand the decision. In terms of the whole quote in quote distractions off the field now. I'm not as close to him as you are if I was I think and he asked me my advice in this situation. Now that he's lost the job of the mets would. I think I would tell them was Carlos you need to hold a press conference in New York have rent out a room at a hotel or restaurant invite all the reporters to come and basically say I'm here to answer all your questions about what went on with Houston with me back in two thousand seventeen eighteen. Because I think that's the only way he's going to be able to manage at some point down the road and all I heard for the last decade is this is someone who absolutely terrific manager in the future future. He has to be great at this job but I think that would allow him to and let's face he's never going to move past this. It's already cost him his job but at least to get past those questions would be to tell the writers. I'm here to answer every question you people have about what take place and I'll tell you exactly really what happened. What do you think about that? I don't know that I mean I. I would love for that to happen. Let's be very clear. I don't know that the benefit for for Carlos it's worth it If if one of the drugs and he said this in an introductory press conference specifically said I didn't want any job I don't need need a job. I wanted to stay in New York. Carl has very very young children. They're all right like very yes. Three kids are all very young during school in your this is where they reside the kids go to school will. So there's only two baseball jobs that he would apply for the New York Yankees and the New York mets and he's not gonna get either one of those jobs so I just don't think that at this point point it benefits the family anyway and I do think that Carlos will do what's best for his family especially having young children Buster and I know you know that you had young children at one time. It's the point that these kids have to see the paper tomorrow. They're going to be in school. They're old enough. You know and I feel like it would rehash a lot of topics. Is that right now. Maybe people are going to move on you know and and just gone from that now if he later on when the kids are a little bit older he wants to do something else. Maybe at that point but but at this point I just don't see the benefit.

"All right to forty five. Let's hit it get to the closer right now. And more calls in just a moment. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six. Oh, we're talking about Nick foles earlier. I'm just starting through a couple at you real quick. John. You remember him got fired by the Vikings late in the season as their offense coordinator, they turn to Kevin's defence. Well, Di Filipo is the new office coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars who need a quarterback now Nick foles and John de Filipo have a relationship from Philadelphia from where d- Filipo was the quarterbacks coach last year. So that could absolutely play a big factor in where he ends up going this coming off season, and he's gonna be a free agent or we could always try to talk them out of Jacksonville by just saying you, Patrick, mommy, and Eric flowers on that life exactly seems more than ever dead set on being a starter. You don't blame them for that for that Brody van wagon to things speaking in the last hour at the jet Lowry press conference. Number one. Said that he logs onto Twitter every day. And is really glad that the met fans aren't apathetic. But he's still not going to sign Bryce Harper. Says that the outfield is not a top priority right now what they have to find playing time for Jeff mcmeel in the outfield. Listen, you make Jeff McNeil thing in the outfield. Okay. Well into ride with you on this one. But I don't want to be sold your new center fielder for the Mets kion Braxton. This is what it was all the time. This was the plan. Yeah. Because that was supposed to be the b squad. Yeah. Not the a squad squad. As squad. Even I'll give you a maybe I listen, I I like many Mets fans got very excited about Jeff McNeil, but what kind of sample size if we really Saint hopefully, he takes the next step forward, and it can become this great outfielder, which is fantastic. But I like that Brody van wagon admits that he is on Twitter and seeing people don't understand how it helps. When guys say like, I never wet face mice, my face, Facebook, whatever it is twenty nine hundred you face. I don't know. I don't use the internet other thing you said was but we're all eight Olympics. But we don't use the internet cutting edge. Yeah. Nasa. Scientists working bars. That's okay. Title up, exactly. He said was that they. If an opportunity presents itself Bill pursuant, but feels pretty good about where things are now. Bs translator just briefly we're done. Don. Jed Lowrie was the finishing piece. What do you got max? I'm just internalizing that okay onto my closer. So Greg Williams, I just, you know, this guy's been in the league for so long that I went back to look for some of his, you know, just to get some interviews and just some hear him talking right because he's called controversial because about a gate, and I just wanted to go back and see for myself, and we actually have some exclusive audio. Of Greg Williams. This is him with his interview with Adam gays. Put your testicles in the Seger. Crazy. We also have him talking to his son about the birds and the bees put your testicles in the crazy Kim. Continues going back to his old high school for career day, put your testicles in the Sega. And Finally, I don't know how we got this best man's speech that he gave one time. What's your testicles in the I tell you? This guy's versatile versatile Maggie. How do I follow that? Yeah. Can't follow that one. I just can't believe this stuff. Hey, by the way, that's on the internet. Adam gates wants to start using. That's you're gonna find. When you do a quick Google. Search new defensive coordinator of old guys want to pretend like they don't use the internet. They need to save the informational highway super house. Yeah. Yeah. They'd say that one. Yeah. The net. I've heard two different. Speaking of best man speeches ever do different best man speeches were trips to the strip club have been referenced. That's not good. That's not good. Everybody needs an editor Tuttosport ones. Especially after a couple of gin and tonics because that was clearly a big factor that that's why as as a friend of maybe the best man, that's giving a speech you need you need. Somebody got to have that blow. Dart in case somebody through. And we're back with bubbles. Off the stage at big hook the hook. All right. Saturday is gonna get outta here. He's got a flight to.

But but right now I wanna keep giving him insulated to play with under the on his roster. Also said they never came close to trading Noah Syndergaard. And that he was responsible for the speculation.

So they asked about Harper and Machado, and he sort of danced around it. He did that thing you guys. Are you really are in vicious with stuff like that? That's great. And I want you to be ambitious. You know, of course. And then they would laugh a little bit awkwardly. But no, it was good. They they asked all the right questions. Everything I wanted to ask Brody van wagon, and Joe and Evan acid just had to do it very quickly very quickly. So Evans like cutting off his answers now today's so and he did Evan. Did this whole deal at the end about I'll put money in front of you right now Brody up put money in front of you. I will buy four seats. If you sign Bryce Harper. I've got two seats and Brody goes how expensive at your seats. Evan goes there about seventy five bucks. He goes, you got to buy more seats. Really funny for brody's never short on a reply all he's got even if he's making it up very quick, it's sept- if it's a metaphor. And then he really is. Right, right. Don't count your party.

"Closer than a lot of people thought like he could he could play in the majors next year was one thing that I saw was either Andy Martino or somebody else had said that is scouting wise. It that's where he was at which made you think about resort going somewhere else. But I don't know. It's it's a it's a farm system that Brody van wagon looks at I think as more capital to go out there and improve the major league roster as opposed to waiting on a lot of he's gonna win. Now. Whenever year. Yeah. That's right now, he said every. Single year. They're going to win a championship because the fluid is to the top. Apparently. This is great. Yes. I heard this. So so Tom Izzo who digital Tom is our guy he had his camera out. And he does his TMZ thing from time to time. And there's guests and he'll be in the hallway. It'll have his camera rolling. Very good at it. Right. He's absolutely very good. He's got balls. Right. Yes. So as Brodie van wagon Mickey Callaway Jeff wilpon are leaving the studio after the Mike interview he has the camera rolling. And he goes to Brody he goes Brody, can you tell geo that the fluids to the top? And they looked at him. Like he had fifteen heads. And apparently said we're going to have to ask our PR guy. That's okay. And then kept walking I want because it's funny because the way Al described it was almost like they didn't know what the reference was really probably how does he not well who such a bizarre statement to make? But he probably doesn't remember less. They're listening to us do that. Then he probably doesn't remind been told. I don't know how the Mets go about their business. But I have been told there are organisms that have someone assigned to the radio stations. So that when they are mentioned Martin, right? Does that a lot? I heard that was I've certainly heard there are organizations that do this that will then transcribe what is said about them. I don't know if the Mets are one of those organizations, and and who knows if they're listening or not listening. I don't know. But if he that's one of those things because he said that did he say that he will he said that during his introductory press in one of the permutations. There was a one on one or in front of everybody around with. Mike later, or whatever it was. But he probably doesn't remember that. Unless he's hearing that we're making fun of it the fluid to the top was not with Mike because that would that's clean audio. I'm I don't think. So I think that was during the press conference fluid to the here that Izzo approached. Oh, could you tell us that happen? Let me get the text. They got from Izzo because approached Brody, really. Yeah. Is this was yesterday says yesterday he wrote? I just asked Brody say quote geo the fluid is all the way to this up. Did he do it? They looked at me. Like, I was nuts. So that's a no this is not fair. 'cause you're you're on the phone. We just did this. If you listen.

"All righty and. As I talked to Paul Dottino. It is kind of sad when you think of the great forty Niners. Giants rivalries and big games that they played in the giants on the way to championships in play offs and everything else and the forty Niners were always in the way, sometimes Victoria, sometimes not. Now, you've got a couple of teams at scraping bottom going against each other. With desperation certainly with the giants a little bit different with the forty Niners in that they expect to get Garoppolo back next year. And that's going to transform them. But backup quarterbacks have not done. A terrible job is witnessed by their victory over Oakland a couple of weeks ago couple of things the porzingas phys. They'll thing turned out to be making a mountain out of a molehill let this tales got a coach the team and deal with what is now. And I don't think that he can necessarily monitor every step of progress with Porzingis that's out of his hands. So if he is not informed day to day. How Kristaps Porzingis is progressing. I cut them slack on that, you know. It's not like, oh, the countdown is too when he comes back. And now he's going to be using know when we get close, and he's here and he's working out with the team that's a different situation. And you want him to be on top of that. But right now. It would seem that he's very very far away. January February at best maybe the end of the season at worst. Maybe doesn't play at all. But the bottom line is watching him sprint gives you a little bit of hope. Look, look pretty good thing is j p Ricciardi deciding perhaps to leave the Mets was it his decision or was it a decision that Brody van wagon and said, you know, it's time to move on. Either way Ricciardi said some nice things on the way out. But it's one of those situations where if you've been passed over for a job once and somebody is promoted over you or somebody from the outside is brought in instead of you. You kind of get the message that there isn't going to be much of a future with that team. Now, if you are content with your job and being an assistant GM or whatever his actual title was and your responsibilities, and you could do that for the rest of your life fine. But most people are issues and want to move ahead and get better jobs and get more respect and all that kind of stuff. So you see the writing on the wall, and it very well could have been a mutual decision. So he moves on and the restructuring the Mets continues hitting coach change bullpen thing. Changing. I two third coaches changing bench coach changing. Things the Mets really really need to do to Jeff in Rye Brook here on the fan. Jeff. Hey, how are you? I'm good Jeff do doing. It's wonderful listening to you all these years. You are a operator. And I wish you a psychotherapist because I think you do a great job. Thank you. Two questions for you use it and one football us question to you is how why is it? I know it's very political. Emerson making Parma should not rock and Roll Hall of fame for all the influential music they've had in the past and the cutting edge talented musicians, all these other bands that get in who are not rock it ceases to amaze you they're always passed over. Well, you know, there was a prejudice in the and hall of fame, and I have really no use for the institution. I've said that a bunch of times I think it's silly. Evaluate art. And this guy's goodness guy isn't good. And you don't go on record sales and all that. But there was a a built in prejudice months credits with art rock. It took us a long time to get in the moody blues, you know, the very popular bands that did something. And I think he was like that. I mean, I don't know that you could find a better keyboard guy than Keith Emerson, and certainly Greg lake with king crimson and Asia and every other bands, and he's saying with was certainly really good and really popular and Carl Palmer's drumming to this day. So I think you're right that if you're going to enshrine people against I'm against enshrining. But if you're going to enshrine, they certainly deserve to stand tall with the rest of them. Yeah. It is a shame. But switching gears football this obviously there's so much thought by the giants. But once they get really has sort of been overlooked is arrested offensive line is Justin Pugh who is really make your mocks himself playing. Well, and they let him walk last year. Also, western rich Berg, I mean, they had a couple of good pieces. And I think that was also really important in terms of the collapse in what we're seeing is one of the worst offensive lies in professional football. That is true. That is true. Good point. These are tough decisions when you get a guy who's going to be on the downside of their career. And you've you've got to make that decision. Do we pay him basically for the past and pay him more than he's worth now, or do you let them walk? And in those cases, I let them walk and you're right. They were pretty good players. Peter in Norwalk here on the fan peak. Richard good morning. How are you doing today morning? I'm good. Before I get to my point. I just want to say it's hard to improve on Saturday mornings, but you do it week after week. Well, thank you very much. Appreciate that. Thank you just want to talk a little bit about the ranger game last night. In my view that losses completely on the coaching staff who decided to go into a defensive shells. What about six minutes less than a third the fourth check disappear. They let them gain his own. What did they think what's going to happen? I mean coaching staff ever learned that you can't play not cool lows 'cause you're gonna lose. Well, did you did you hear the updates Davy Rams have been playing with the coach saying they cheated the game? He basically put it on the players the players kind of went into the shell. That it wasn't necessarily the coaches telling them to do that that the players were off that mindset. Is that what he said? I caught the end of it because I'm running so many of us, right? I got in the car and turns it on the end of it. But I mean, that's when the coaching staff does right. He's still at a time out left. If he didn't like what he saw on the ice. Stop it. And in the overtime white. Kevin shattenkirk was out there in the overtime is beyond me. I have more mobile than he is. I don't know. I don't get it and the decision-making taking shots. I think coach did talk about that a little bit. They gave up the Dushan are low possession shots and dump on. Of course, they played really decent hockey, the west seven or eight games. But then oh, man, they're sitting there. Why wife is in the next room? Then you know, you're talking to yourself again. I said I can't help it. I can't help it. They do this time and time again, and they're going to give up a goal and sure enough they go. Yeah. Yeah. Well, unfortunately with the Rangers, you got gotta rebuilding project going on here. Change of coaches chain philosophy a lot of different players and. Unfortunately, other than the New York Yankees every team in New York, and you know, I don't know about the devils and islanders necessarily, but you know, you're looking at rebuilding the Knicks rebuilding that's a rebuilding. The jets are rebuilding. The giants certainly need to rebuild the Mets to an extent are re tooling rebuilding. Maybe the Yankees are the team that just tweaks, you know, they want one hundred games last year. And even though everybody, oh, gee that wasn't enough. You have to do more. You look at the Red Sox the tremendous season that they had the Broschi is going to have to break that team down to an extent. He is going to have to kimbrel may leave. And I'm not so sure that that's a bad thing. Given the way he performed the second half of the season. You know, you've got evolved. The who will find them browse ski? I do everything I can to sign him. He looks like a winner who may not cost you a ton of money, and maybe happy winning a championship and wanting to stay there. But there's a lot of things I have to do they have to make a decision at second base. Whether they think the joy is going to come back. And if he does how good he's going to be. So there are a lot of a lot of questions around the Red Sox and for them to win one hundred and eight games and a championship. Again, is going to be a tall order given the economics even though the Red Sox spend all that money. All right. Let's go to John in Brooklyn. You're on the fan. John. Good morning. How are you? Morning, john. I gotta say one thing about the rock before my point on jet. It is amazing to me how the beastie boys dining on lockable hall of fame before E L P. So disgraceful. It's it's I couldn't even put into words. How bad it is. Well, there there are people who are in there who aren't rockers like nameless. Is for people that transcended the music industry, like Madonna like, Donna? That's what that is all about. Well, if it's called the it should be called the music hall of fame. They're not the rock and roll. I agree. Didn't didn't come up with the worldwide is sports being on on channel four. Remember? They used to play music. Came up with the Olympics. The the music. Could again, I Don I don't recall that I know they used fire on high on the front of the yellow for a while there. But. Yeah. I guess he did do that. But I'm not now remembering that real well, but okay. They should be. Donalds one concern about this guy. Okay. Downfield digital really poor too. Big question. Mark right now. I mean, he's not checking off his primary receive panicking and sometimes even away he stole the.

"I actually was thinking earlier it would have been nicer when we had everything happened a few months ago to find out when I was in Iceland on vacation Michaels coming back, and there were shifted around. Bad. You can extend your vacation like Pat Rossler the Mets hitting coach find out what vacation people like actually, that's a great thing. But that wouldn't have worked for us. We're on the air every day. Vacation. Yards that I haven't explored. I have so many friends who have gone to Iceland of I keep seeing that water that looks like it's warm in the middle of like surrounded the classic Iceland picture is people in like the hot tub or you. The guys are whatever it is with steam coming. It's all snowed over that thing. Yes. So basic point is so basic. Yes, I am basic the point is this. I wouldn't mind getting so bad news. When I was on vacation wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. But I would say this, though, if you have an issue with Brody van wagon and making changes in terms of the coaching staff, if you have a problem with Pat Rossler going and an unnamed guy coming forward and defending Rossler, you know, what you just don't get it. Just don't get it. I understand that says this was out half the year. The Mets couldn't hit for Jack squad douche last year. And you think that the firing the hidden coaches is some kind of problem. No. This guy is going to change some things up. And I've got no problem with that whatsoever. And another one thing we were concerned about we went through a hell of a lot to get that.

"Thank you. Thank you. Thank you Brody at this time. We'll open it up for Q and A session again for our audiences at home. Please. When you raise your hand identify your name, and your affiliation prior to your question with that will open it up. Steve. Steve Jobs, Essen y Brody. I'm just curious. How long has this been a goal of yours? Had you thought about becoming a general manager for a while now? Or is it an idea that that Jeff and Fred brought to you, and you started to dig in and feel like it was the right path. Well, like like, many people I grew up playing baseball, and the dream of working in baseball was was clearly something that that was exciting in something that you didn't know if it could become a reality when my playing days finished, I set out on a career in professional sports. Really with one goal is to try to make a positive impact on it. And so my invasion has been that ever since I entered the baseball world and the opportunity to do it for players for for the last eighteen years has been something I've taken a tremendous amount of pride in. But I think that it's a it's an exciting time to now be able to impact the game, you know, different way. And now being a position where I'm trying to win China win for for players and trying to win for an organization where where you get judged by your wins and losses. Bridge in the middle. Brodie perspective UNBC TV, you said in July, the bet shoot either trade the Graham or give them a contract now that you are the Mets how will you handle the Graham's contract situation? Sure didn't expect that question today. So so Jacob degrom clearly has established himself as the best pitcher in baseball. Hopefully in a couple of weeks he'll be awarded with the with that trophy. As I said earlier, I think that you want to try to identify the best players and you want to keep them for as long as possible. And if our vision direction does not intend to include a long sustainable winning team, then you have to consider moving players. But make no mistake. I believe Jacob degrom is is an incredible talent. And I hope to keep him for a long time. While he on the left. Matthews from new York Daily News back on the degrom issue. Did you discuss your your possibility of coming over here with degrom and Syndergaard? And if so what was their reaction to it. Yes. I did and some of the other clients clients as well. I think to a man not only with their Mets clients but also to clients around around the game. There was a tremendous amount of enthusiasm a tremendous amount of support. And and I think a belief that I may be able to bring some fresh perspectives to the to the team side quick follow up to that considering the nature of your relationship, especially with those two players in the fact, they haven't had their big free agent contracts, yet, do you think you might have to recuse yourself when it comes time to negotiate those let me answer that because I had conversations with Commissioner Commissioner's office L R D And Tony Clark directly, and we have provisions in brody's contract to to deal with any conflicts of interest. I'm sorry. I can't right now. He has rich. Risk radio. Trading deadline in winter meetings. You're going to be in a much different position than you were as an agent, you'll be making those calls and trying to get people to make trades and sign contracts being so you're on the other end of it does that give you an actual advantage in being in those times over general managers that weren't on the other side of it. I wouldn't want to say I have an advantage over over people that have more experience than I do. But but I think I have insights, I think I understand clearly what players motivations are. And what agents are trying to accomplish. And I certainly have insights into how all of the other teams operate. I think what I've had the benefit of is. I I've helped tried to help a number of teams accomplish their goals. And I have a pretty good understanding of what they want to accomplish on a on a year-by-year basis is constructing the rosters. So I do think that I have a unique perspective that I hope to bring to bring into conversations came in the middle. Tim from Newsday. Just curious what your understanding of ownership's degree of involvement is in baseball operations under ship in general or this ownership is ownership in this new situation. Well, Jeff indicated before I certainly hope that there is a collaborative approach every good organization that I've worked for his head a culture of collaboration, and that's one that I that I value. I mentioned that to both Fred. Jeff when we were going through this process that I want them to be involved and the truth of the matter is if they're not that's bad ownership. James? New York Times, a Brody just the idea that you're on you for all those years, you're on that side of the table. And you might have a rivalry would say other agents, say GM's and that way. But now that you're on this side like how will you manage those relationships and how we deal with them. Sure. Well, I think on a ten thousand foot level, I've always believed that players and teams need to form partnerships. And if they do then you find a recipe for success. I also know that agents have certain reputations. And maybe rightfully so. But the goal should be to put players in a position to succeed. And I think if agents take that approach we now say we we as teams want to try to find the right fit the right? The right formula for success. And I think that an agents will embrace the fact that we may be an opportunity in a landing spot for great players gave on the left. Dave london. Newsday. I guess this goes to both of you guys Brody. You talked a lot of a lot of investments for this team. Whether it's players whether it's scouting resources, whether it's analytical for both you guys this signal kind of a new investment in a new kind of beefing up for the match with new front office personnel. And a lot of new personnel to help in those departments as well as investing in players to. LA you answer on on new or not? But we surely have money put aside, we heard it from all of the candidates that they wanted to beef up certain areas, and what they heard some of it was writing something was wrong from what the media put out there. But we do have money put aside to make sure we have the resources they're for investments in the front office and scouting development as well. As analytics they made that clear to me through the process, not only are there resources. But I think there's real capabilities that exists in this organization already and my goal is to bolster. On top of it. Mike also on the left. Mike Fitzpatrick dissociated press for Jeff. One of the things that's raised. Eyebrows. About this higher was that there were front offices all over the major leagues with seemingly very qualified experienced people to come into a role like this. Why go for you guys? Why go in this direction something so different? What what about it is attracted you to it? I think what Brody brought and I'm not saying that anybody else loss, but Brody was the front runner for us. Because of what he talked about in terms of collaboration has excitement his feeling of what he can do with this organization where we are now going forward. And we had said forty some odd candidates that we talked about and went through and going through the entire process. This was what we thought would be best for your position going forward. I realize it's out of the box. And I said we were going to be out of the box to start and this. This was truly where we thought we could put the hands of the organization with Brody. Gentleman. Thank you very much at this time, we're going to break off into our one on ones. But prior to that we're going to stage a few photos on the front. So if you'll bear with us once the photos are complete. All right. So that's the press conference. I'm sure you'll hear more from Brody later on this afternoon. Maybe from Jeff to who knows. Look. You you heard expect exactly what you expected to hear from both Jeff wilpon and from Brody van wagon. Ron said he hopes to happen here for a long time we will win. Now, we will win in the future the players. They were all very supportive of him. He's not going to say that they were ticked off recognizes that he is not the path of least resistance. Look. He's he's never going to be somebody. That's going to look overwhelmed by a situation. He looks the part when he is sitting there and yes today, they win the press conference. Plenty of teams have won the press conference over without a doubt. I made from what they're saying on their side and Brodie van wagon and saying, hey, everything seemed to be roses when I told my biggest clients, by the way, I'm not going to be representing you anymore. Now, I'm going to be with the general manager of the Mets. I wonder if that's actually how it went down. Also, I have major questions here. Keep in mind. I'm someone who is definitely willing to give this a chance I feel like they are saying the right things, but I wanna know a little bit more here about one of the provisions in Brody van wagons contract as it comes. To as it relates rather to conflicts of interest negotiating with the Mets. Biggest players we're talking about the ground. Syndergaard Mark the other question that I would have loved to have got asked at this press conference. But I know it's limited. And I understand it. If you were the Mets GM, would you have given you an assessment is one hundred billion dollars and then figure out as the agent. What would he have said? And I don't know if he would be able to answer that. You know, honestly. But listen another thing that really stood out to me here. Jeff wilpon saying Brodie van Wagoner was the front runner they interviewed forty people are considered rather forty people that he was the front runner. I think the Mets were looking for this outside the box higher. I think that they had maybe identified him as a potential candidate for them maybe long ago. And now he's sitting there next to Jeff wilpon being introduced as the thirteenth front runner thing. You know, you're you're always going to hear that. This is the guy that we wanted all along. You don't have to say that. But. Forty people were considered. I mean, it looks like they cast a pretty wide dead. Then I say we didn't get our guy though, the front runner is a different kind of thing doesn't front runner makes you feel like he was making original thought all along. But it makes them feel like, okay? We got our guy. Like, this is the guy we targeted we identified. He checked all the boxes he confirmed. What we already thought he came in. And you know, what we got exactly who we wanted and he's an honeymoon period. Now. But you know, some of those conversations are going to have to be had like is he going to be in there and arbitration what's gonna go on when it comes down to some of those negotiations. I don't think he can be an arbitration with the ground. No, we can't. My thought would be those provisions would be he's not the one that goes hitting those contract. I want to know what does he know about cesspits in how he feels going forward? You know, he knows suspects. I'm sure it says comes off to me as a player that once he entrust you to his family. Then he he reveals a lot of information, though, what does he know about cesspits desire to to move forward coming off of these surgeries from the hills? Well, what one thing I'm sorry to cut you off. But one thing I very much did like about what he said that maybe I hadn't thought about could be a real advantage for the Mets here is he said I have insights into how every other team what they're thinking. And what kind of timelines they're operating on that was very revealing. Maybe they're making pitches to free agents and saying listen, we're actually committed to winning whereas opposed to team x still wants to be quote unquote tanking for the next two three years. So now, you can decide that was pretty smart. All right. That's gonna do it for us today. You will hear for Brody van wagon and later at four thirty with Mike and. That'll do it..

"Nec is with us from city field the press conference in just a few moments for Brody van. Ragged introduced as the Mets new general manager Eddie CNBC how we doing bus doing good doing good guys and gal. How are we? Hey, how you doing? So set the stage for us. What do you see standing room only here? Now, it's crowded urban Foxwoods room. We're not in the press conference room downstairs up in the Foxwoods room. So. And the the media has been treated to well, at least desserts, anyway, that's which we have some some water, and such but few people are here. Papering the room at this point in time. No sign of Brody yet. But was still a few minutes away from that? Could he expect to speak today at is is Jeff wilpon going to speak as well as Brody? Yeah. I would assume I'm sure Fred is going to be your two. I don't always these going to speak. He usually doesn't. But I would assume Jefferson and Brody are going to be up on Sunday as as we speak. Jeff, we'll speak. I'm sure it turn things over to Brody. And then I would imagine they'll be questions after that. And listen with this appointment, they're going to be a lot of questions. I guess not owning from today but down the line as well. Let's talk about that Eddie, what are your? I heard that they were going to go in this direction. What did you think? I was I was very surprised. Honestly when Doug Melvin was was the only guy that the final three that had a media briefing. In other words, you know, we got on the phone with them and a lot of questions, and I'll tell you what he was. He was on point that day. You really was he he addressed the the old school scouting combine versus analytics. And you know, how to blend that together? I I thought he answered everything on point that day. I thought he was terrific most other people did too. And I don't think I was the only one the thought he was the favorite. So when they dismissed him, and it was down to bloom and Brodie, I think it took a lot of people by surprise certainly took me by surprise. I kinda figured when it got down to those two the Brody could be the one thing that, you know, I knew all along as a Jeff has always been very comfortable with Brody van wagon. And you can look around the Mets rostrum probably figure that out for yourself. About seven players at least now, plus, you know, three or four of the prime prospects. That'll be here pretty soon to all all CAA clients, and they're brody's guys. Now. Yes. That's what I'm that's what I want to speak to a former player. I would be uncomfortable with my agent becoming the general manager responsible for my salary because you know, we entrust our ages with a lot of secrets, and how does he turn to page and become the general manager without having conversations with those players. I mean last year he was talking about pay the Graham or trade them. Well, now, he's the guy responsible for that where he'd be giving that power to make that decision. Well, he's he's going to have to make that decision because he's going to be the general manager bar. But I listen, I understand exactly what you're saying. And as the former player, and I I would imagine that, you know, a lot of his guys probably have questions, and I'm sure that brody's been talking with them spell too. You know, you're right. It was it was only about three months ago or so that three or four months ago that you know, he gave the edict about basically, you know, pay him or trade them. So that's. At this point in time. He's going to have to deal with this. And you know, hopefully, they will sign to grab something they probably should have done the previous year. But they didn't do it. Again, I think there's probably going to have to be a trust factor in here. If you will. That's a lot. Yeah. People because he knows where all the bodies are. He knows the L some some some information. You know, when you think about how long players wanna play some things that they've done. You guys aren't you know, all the time boy scouts, and and on the other side, we know a lot about our agents of what they do in their personal life. What they do as well. So that's often gave me it's all good until somebody breaks that trust. And he can't satisfy everybody. He can't pay everybody. So all it takes is that one player to spill the beans on what they know about him. Yeah. No, listen. I think you know, we'll we'll we'll other general manager. I think that's probably going to be the toughest thing for him is getting into the general manager circle from being an agent and a prominent agent to know, we'll other GM suspect him of passing on info to CA, and the people that he's you know, is obviously going to still no there because he's he's been there awhile. He's he was there prominent guy and also, you know, or other agents going to think that he's going to pass. Information that he knows onto Mets management. So that's why I say that has to be some trust. And I I don't know how you figure that out to be honest with you, and I think it's a very it's a very slippery slope. But I think those things have to be addressed at some point in time. And and I think it's difficult. But I think it is. Yeah. No time like the present to address all those questions because I know he's going to get asked about it today. Eddie Coleman is out at at city field waiting on the Brodie van wagon and press conference at Eddie. I don't know if this is getting it cleared up today or not. But kind of seems like if Brody van wagon is taking this job. That means he's okay with the structure that's in place. And if that means Omar John Rico, and j p Ricciardi are part of the future of this franchise. He seems like he's okay with that. Do you think that his evaluation of Mickey Callaway is he going to have a chance to evaluate Mickey Callaway actually do you feel like there could potentially be a change coming at manager? If then wagon and feels like there needs to be a change. I don't think. So now, I don't know how he feels. About that. I'm sure he's going to be asked about that. Today about the manager situation. But you know, they they've made it pretty clear that that Mickey Callaway is going to be back here next year. It'll be in the second year over three or contract. He has I think, you know, he's always going for him a three year contract. And you know, he's still got two years left. But I think they made that pretty imminently clear before now can can they make that can he make his own decision on that? If he feels that Calloway is not the guy. Well, they say he will say he can it's going to be interesting to see how that all plays out. You know, I think all three of the guys that the three headed GM is still going to be here. All Marmon is definitely going to be here. I know that he'll probably be specializing in international stuff. John Rico has been the day-to-day guy and kind of the paper pusher. If you will contract guy, and I think he will remain doing that professional evaluation probably with J P. I think he's he's going to remain as well. I thought he might be the guy that might be on thin ice. But it appears all three are going to be here. And I think you're right. I think Brody is probably comfortable with that or had to be comfortable with that. Let's put it that way. If he was going to be the GM. With us. She is awaiting the press conference with Brody van lagging know, we're talking about this earlier when guys are interviewing to be football coaches. They know who they're bringing in. They've got the entire plan in front of them. And with a guy like Brodie? I don't know you're you're an agent, and this is your ultimate plan. And you've got all of that lined up as far as all the people around you. I'm just wondering about that transition the the idea of. Yeah, you're on the other side of it. But really the only thing that you've been doing in. That regard is a lot of negotiate. Yeah. It's it's not ideal. Chris just the the entire situation is not ideal. Because it was we were talking as I address Maga's question to at ports before, you know, they're they're obviously a lot of issues here. He has people already in place, or it seems that way, you know, he's got a manager. He's got three other people's needs to deal with he's he's very familiar with the and like I said before I think one of the biggest things that he had going for him is Jeff has always been very comfortable with them. And. I think you know, if you know the Manson, you know, what they've been all about the imports. The Jeff wilpon us out is not gonna change just not going to change. And I think he feels very comfortable working with Brody in that regard. Even though there are obstacles that they have to either get around or get through or figure out here. They go through this. But you're right. You know this. It's it's different. It's hard to it's hard to know. Exactly what the plan is coming from, you know, not not an entirely different situation than you would expect. But certainly a different one. That's for sure we're talking with Eddie Coleman. Yeah. I was just looking back over some things with Brody van wagon, and we fairly don't really know who the person is obviously doesn't have a long track record in any kind of baseball management position. But just going back to February of two thousand eighteen he said and was asked about the cold market. You know, that we saw this sort of stale market in the in the winter Eddie, and he said the behavior of the owners and this year's free agent market has changed dramatically. This is a quote, it feels coordinated rightly or wrongly basically, then brings up nine hundred four says the players haven't been this frustrated at out United and outrage since ninety four obviously drunk compare leads to the strike season. Now, he's working for ownership. I imagine they probably had to bring this up with them. Do you feel like he's going to have a different approach to the winter? Just because he was. Matt agent side. I don't think. So I don't think he will Maggie. But it's it's interesting. I don't think he ever said the word collusion at that time. But it's obvious that that's what he was talking about. And that's those are the two things the statement. And and of course, that statement in the winter as well they're coming to the dais here. All right. Okay. Here. We house coming up there. I think Carol Kauffman director is going to address us. Let's go up there. Thank you. Good afternoon. Thank you all for being here today. I welcome our live audiences that have joined us from SNL y. Our radio station WFAN as well as all the different social media outlets from the New York Mets just gonna relate a couple of agenda items. Once the speakers are complete then we're going to have a photo opportunity and front we're going to have a QNA. So we'll guide you through all that.

"Ten w o r. Sports zone with Pete McCarthy. Could you imagine out loved to be a fly on the wall for those interviews between the Mets and Brodie van wagon? It's gotta be a fascinating push in pull just in the interview itself. Forget about whether or not they hire him and what happens afterwards, but just the act of interviewing itself. If I am the baseball team. Right. Well, they're going to be some philosophy questions. We maybe some hypothetical situations that you might throw out there things like that that general stuff would be fine. But I would also want to know what's your plan for this team for any candidate? And I'm sure I'm bloom would have semi ideas while I like this player. I would look to make a move here. This is the kind of free agent that I would be interested in for the organization and for him to give some of that info. Not the end of the world. It's not like Tampa Bay has been playing in the same financial area as the Mets, but for Brody van wagon and one of the first decisions that this new general manager is going to have to make is whether or not to extend Jacob degrom and for for instance, he should be able to give a data driven answer. Right. Why? It's a good idea. Why it's a bad idea wherever it might be coming off a Cy Young season two years till free agency. That's the situation for gras. You can't really ask that question to Brodie van wagon in our thank. And does he say, well you ask him? Well, what's the first thing? You would do its best general manager sighed? Jacob degrom new three hundred billion dollars. I want to plant the seed, right? If you don't get the job or you go back to being a player agent. Hey, you're planning to see the get the a victim. It is just such a conflict of interest. What's been thrown around in? And yeah, that's part of it. You're on the opposite end of the table. Real fast happens instantaneously as soon as you sign the contract to become the GM. And if you don't get the job. Well, now, you're interviewing for the position that essentially becomes your negotiating fo-. And you end up, you know, basically talking to some of the same people about China maximize your you get for your own client. So there's a lot that is interesting about Brody van wagons part and all this. And then of course, you get to what happens once he does get the job what kind of information he might have that front office people around the game might not be privy to certainly in the case of the Mets players, and you know, players are going to confide more in their agent with maybe even physical issues personal problems. Whatever it might be than they are the team the agents, their employees, essentially, and you know, sudden. Switch teams as it might be is a dramatic change in. You not only information on the Mets, but perhaps other clients and other teams around baseball knowing that a player isn't happy in this situation. And maybe he is someone that might be able to be had. And there's a lot to that eight hundred three to one zero seven ten the number wanna know what you think of wagon and hind bloom being the final two as Doug Melvin as reportedly been eliminated from consideration for the Mets general manager position tonight Ray in Waterbury gives us a shout. Hey rate, I think it's an exciting night got the old guy out of there. And you know, what I'm rooting for van wagon. And you know, why he's got it got. Yes, they have the the war that they're gonna spend money. He wouldn't take this job. If they told him they told them, they're not going to go crazy this re re up to grime, and Syndergaard just gotta know he's got. That's going to be in a ballpark. What they ask for you going be wearing so yours are signed himself on the site. And he loses to Graham. Well, he's he's not wearing two hats because you know, once he takes the job that he wouldn't have anything to do with the grand Syndergaard anymore. Right. But the bottom line is you've got to think that I would have to think he's told me he's gonna spend some money. I would think that would. Yeah. That would make the job more attractive than otherwise. But I gotta think that part of the motivation. If not a lot of it is just a desire to be involved with the team the B general manager, I'm not it's so interesting to make a jump for being an agent to a front office person. I don't necessarily know that it has to be the perfect situation. Because interesting. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. A box. But I like it. Yeah. And and I it is out of the box. Thanks for the call Ray. But it has worked at some other situations the Golden State Warriors their general manager is a former player agent. And you know, that's a decision that has certainly paid off is Bob Myers is done a tremendous job. Now, I believe if I had the time line, correct, he inherited Steph curry, but so much of the rest of that team was built by Myers into a. A dynamo of dynasty, and one of the things that the warriors have been very adept at is using added information they have. They had the whole floor. Charted isn't even a good word. But mapped out and sensors that you know, we're all the players you're going where they've traveled and then find a way to take all of that information may make sense of it in a way that can help the team and the easiest way to explain away the warriors, and why they've had so much success is they're going to run you up and down the floor. Maximize their possessions should've Tana threes, and they're gonna start shooting threes in transition. They kind of started that trend a few years back. I remember watching them before they won a title, and they were thrilling to watch. It'd be playing like the blazers at ten o'clock and the warriors slightly above five hundred and they were an up and coming team, you could see that they were fun to watch. I think they still are even if you don't like Kevin Durant in the way that he joined the team, and that seemed to be the he'll turn in the whole thing or maybe Draymond green rubs you the wrong way with them the incidents that he has had. But the brand of basketball is exciting. And it is interesting. That is a key difference between these two sports at the moment where Alex are play everywhere. Right. We just went through it with the two point conversion decision by Pat Shurmur and the giants the other day. But I haven't seen it really impact the enjoyment level of football in basketball. It's made it more exciting. The basic analytical strategy and basketball is shoot a lot of threes. And don't the ball a lot. Those are your two highest percentage highest efficiency shots in the game. It sounds great. As a fan you watch curry last night, fifty one points. He's launching it from like forty feet out. He said, the coaches line launched three pointers and coming down the court transition and send it up off balance near almost near center court, and these flushing these things in. It's unbelievable. And the dunks. Obviously that's always gonna get everybody up. Meanwhile in baseball, the analytics slow the game down more pitching changes longer games. The chef is not necessarily pleasant on the I and fun to watch results in a lot more strikeouts. Everybody's trying to hit home runs and it has made the game itself less enjoyable. You can't deny if you're trying to win a lot not all. But a lot of these strategies have paid off. Let's go to Lou in massapequa Louis wanted Melvin. Hey how. Yeah. I I wanted Doug Melvin because look at the look at the Bruins now Bruins. They got a great farm system. They got a great team, you know, on the field right now. And what I wanted to do is high elven, and you know, this would go against the wilpon spending policies, but I wanted him the the guy from camp but head of their analytics on the. Bolt while I I think the problem you'd run into is high bloom is not going to leave his position in Tampa to take the same position with the Mets. I if he's going to leave he needs to be the general manager. Well, you know with analytics that you. Look, you know, people are going away from starting pitching and building up bullpens. And and it's a classic example, look, Milwaukee shameful. I think we're walking bullpen was better than the Yankees. And but look at the reason why I think that the Yankees lost is not only the reliance on the home run. But their starting pitching wasn't great. And it wasn't even adequate. So the Red Sox had much better starting pitching. And although the bullpen wasn't great. It was adequate and they filled in the bullpen with starter starters. Yeah. And and that's that was really the key for the Red Sox. Thanks for the call Lou. And it's why I picked against the Red Sox every round because I I look at the bullpens you have to be able to get out late in games and something that the Red Sox did really they defeated it two ways one. They move those. Starters to the bullpen. They're aggressive with these guys. Even last night. They bring in their game three starter to shut down the eighth inning that they don't trust those guys in the middle of the rhyme braziers done a tremendous job and Barnes pitch better than he did down the stretch in the postseason. But the big thing they've done is to start. It's the other thing they've done is it just mashed and it hasn't been all that close. Typically, when they get lighten two games last night, being an exception. But they've been able to break games open in a way that it's not that close when you get late. So those are two ways the Red Sox have defeated the thinking about the bullpens and knocked off the Yankees despite not having as many good arms late in the game. I do want to go back to Melbourne on his role with the brewers is a special assistant to the general manager. He didn't have ultimate decision. Making over the last three years. He might have been a factor in it. But David Stearns is the young analytical mind that made the moves for Lorenzo Cain in Christian yelich in pulling off that trade. I'm not sure how much credit you could give the Melvin for that. I'll give them some because he was in the shop. Right. Maybe he learned some things being around Stearns in Milwaukee. I don't I don't think that Melbourne would have been a terrible choice. It was just clear. It wasn't going to be an inspiring choice. It wasn't going to fire up this fan base. And I'm interested in the Mets taking a little bit of a chance but catching up to the rest of the league. And I really again I wanted to hear from bloom today. I'd love to pick his brain be gets the job you you'd love to hear that press conference. Just. How he can explain his thoughts in the game..
