Brendan Girardi said after yesterday's game that he did not catch any wind about not playing that Siri's finale and Harper put on the mask, not because of the Marlins.

The Mookie Betts decision could haunt the Boston Red Sox for a long time
"It didn't take very long for mookie bats. He didn't even suit up for the regular season game for the dodgers yet. He's got that tonight against the giants, and they signed him to a twelve year extension for three hundred sixty five million dollars, so he's twenty seven years of age. This is a lifetime deal in La. Certainly Senate notice to the rest of the National League. We mean business here. We're going to be competitive for a long time. On the flip side if you're a red sox fan, because it feels like this was the the Red Sox said. Hey, you know what or last year. Hey, we're going to regroup and try to come back with a vengeance here in a couple of years and there was thought that maybe mookie Betts would end up back with the red sox. At some point. He started his career there. beloved there, but the front. Office didn't commit to him financially. And now the deal's going to be a referendum on both of these franchises. We move forward. If vets delivers the dodgers win, they're gonNA look great in the Red Sox are going to be reminded of the one that got away for at least the next decade, but you never know about these big deals I would never want to sign a player for more than five years. I would just be nervous about that. Just playing the odds of you staying healthy you staying competitive of the cost that goes along with that athlete there. But. We see this with a lot of these baseball players. You sign him up if it's Mike Trout and if it's Bryce, Harper if it's Garrett Cole you want to lock them in, and also there's going to be a question. mookie Betts, no longer in that hitter, friendly fenway park fans in both cities are going to keep a close eye on mookie and his performance in La. La should be one of the more intriguing subplots in this unusual season, and if you look at the numbers with Mukhi Bats, you know my feelings about Mookie Betts. He was must see TV when he was playing for the Red Sox and that will be the same implying the dodgers i. just don't know if you'll be the same style of player that he was at fenway. then. He's going to be that at dodger stadium if you start to look at the numbers since twenty sixteen where mookie Betts ranks. And I know that we think my trout, the coronation, your best player in baseball in the future hall of fame, absolutely no problem with that. mookie Betts. Was the east. Coast version of Mike Trout from the standpoint of he could do everything. and. He's getting paid to do everything now a runs. Nobody scored more runs since two thousand sixteen hits third doubles I. Even home runs. He's not a home run hitting guy. He's five nine one eighty and five nine, one eighty. Thank you thank you? Nineteenth in home runs. You look at RBI's. He's up there. He's you know. He's in the top ten in stolen bases batting average. He puts up numbers all around good fielder as well by all accounts, good clubhouse guy, so the dodgers are investing in somebody who will be the face of the franchise for years to

Night Tuesday morning it was it was electric. I Won't Lie Dallas. I feel like I've already announced my team publicly. You guys were supposed to the think. Dallas announced his K B O team on twitter correct J. Hey Have you publicly announced your K B O team obliquely know privately. No privately no either. You've made a selection. I think I'm ready okay. I'M READY TO ANNOUNCE DALLAS. You're up. Who is your K B O team? I am a proud member of the Kia Tigers fan base. That's right spearheaded by none. Other than American baseball legend and icon and bay area hero. One Matt Williams so I am here for the Kia Tigers Side Note. My grandma saw me going through the names and she wants owned a KIA severe. So that made the Decision Breweries Kia J. so the Kia Tigers 2017 champs jus- owners of I believe eight championships is correct that I don't know for sure but I do know that they want in two thousand seventeen but that they've been slipping since so maybe you're kind of buying low on the stock a little bit with the Kia Tigers. Yeah I was GONNA I was GonNa jump on the Samsung Lions Train. Just up purely outdoors blown off last purely out of the amount of time that they'll be seen on television like I started to get like. Oh I might have to just go these games that are on twitch. Yeah but I mean like if I'm sitting down at ten or ten PM. Yeah this is a team that's going to be on TV for you. Know for a few times like I would have gone with the giants. I didn't see them on the TV schedule at all and not to mention a sixty one team coming off last year. So I don't know how much love they were going to get in the Public Guy. Anyway but yeah. Did you got the point in time. Last night a pitch got throwed. Catcher like you know went to block it kind of snagged it back and the empire plate like stood up kicked back like he was about squared up right in the. Dick with the ball. But the catcher caught it as you could see the empire just like kick back and stop. The catcher looked back at him and higher. Look at the catcher like you could tell there was a thank you. Thank you very much for that. Going on right there was pretty cool. Maybe it was great. I between even without the fans I mean. Obviously if you're if you're a baseball fan you understand that like the fan. Experience is a big part of watching the sport. But if you can get past that competitions good the enthusiasms good bat flip central over there that you can bat flip your Dick off in a K B O and. It is widely except like that. It's just cool there. You what you do There is one game. I think it was I think it might have been the giants game or the fuck in there like the field almost burned down. There's a building on fire in the background. That a smoke delay we. Are We in delay first baseball game of the year in the first week of? May and we get a real rain delay going on. This is good. It's good stuff and I enjoyed it and I think that it was really cool. The coolest part about all this was it. These games are being played between one and four. Am on the East Coast and twitter was popping off. I mean you would think like I'm GONNA fire off this three. Am Tweeden it'd be shouting into the into the void. No baseball twitter was alive and well last night. All right now. Let me ask you this though not to be Debbie Downer. All right but how much going day two weeks vis though are you as excited as you were last night yesterday because if I'm being completely and totally because I watched game too if I'm being totally honest two weeks of cheering all on a team that I'm not invested him cheering on a team. That I know nothing about or you or your glued to the TV. Is it like super excited. I don't know that it is. We're all enamored with the idea of sports coming back. Baseball coming back specific. I'm Yeah Bro. You were up at one. Am watching the game on the East Coast. I'm up till one. Am to watch the end of this fucking game over here on the West Coast. So it's baseball. It's live sport. That we know is something that is going on anywhere else. So that's that's the attraction right now. How much of this holds. How much of this has staying power answer to that question? I think the enthusiasm has staying power if the team that you've selected is actually good. I don't think any fake fans are going to be riding out a tough season with your team if they stink. I like say what was your team. The Keel Kia Tigers. But I'm assuming they start off eight and two you're going to be the biggest obnoxious Kia Tigers fan working out too hot. We already got boat race last. I think Dallas is right. I think right. I don't think I don't think. Enthusiasm can sustain itself over an entire season or even close to one with with rosters full of people that you just have no previous emotional investment. Well not only that. But then like what makes. Let's go back to the Batista backflip. Why was the Batista Backflip? What it was. Why was it what it was well? Let's take a look at the situation right in the in the history of the organization but the take a look at the physical environment the Rogers Centre a nation by right so that baffled goes up and now you've got the energy of the Rogers Centre. You've got you've got physical palpable energy. That is the excitement that you are witnessing. That will never exist during this time. Right now in the cable so the sweetest bat flip that puts the team ahead going into the last inning. That's going to be great but you are going to be the peak of celebration in your living room. That's GonNa that's GonNa be it and Dude I'm here for the for the flip for the guy who might be able to actually like flips it like behind him like fucking over his head back bucket. That's great that's but I want to hear the fans losing their shit too like. I WanNa see the YELP because I've experienced that I know what that is like and for me to watch remedial experienced baseball in person played it against a Asian culture. And watch what I'm seeing here like. I could see the difference. I know the difference. I'm just saying we're all excited about baseball getting back here but if we're going to ask a question like I did about staying power. Does it have a chance? Yeah maybe not for you. But I'm a fucking die hard L. Twins Fan till I die since yesterday We we whoop that ass last night. So Casey Kelly. My Guy Pitches on Sunday. Oh Yeah I mean. He's sending me a full so I'm just gonNA start like anytime. There's an algae twins game I'm going full uni. I'm just to stand there watch. I had three monitor's going last night watching the Games and listen. I'm going to get invested. This is something that I'm buying in on and even I even after Major League Baseball starts. I think I'll still be invested in the LG twins. I got you I got you quickly bailing out. We're coming for that ASS. I'M GONNA go with the Katie Whiz for a couple of reasons. First youngest pitching youngest pitching staff league. Somebody else's research has told me. Also they have gentleman by the name of an. I'm sorry ahead of time. Ho Gung who is twenty years old is described as something like the Juan Soto of the B and is apparently known for his ridiculous leg kicks and bad flips even by Korean standards. That's what this article is telling me. It's expected that he'll be in the middle of the Korean lineup. At the next World Baseball classic so young rotation standout young middle of the order bat was some flair to them. And of course you can say something to the effect of. We're the which is and nobody beats US Seinfeld now. Now I've not a Seinfeld guy. I'm a curb guy but tough audience and people look at me like I have fifty heads. I'm I'm a Seinfeld guy but I am a curb guy. Same thing like well no. It's not all and nobody beats me. Dr J. Jerry. The thirty five and older crowd twitter questions. Jay The Dallas by Kevin Coups Munaf a lifetime supply of beverages after saving his perfect game on a week. Grounder to third week grounder to third. And he gets you get you get a paycheck every two weeks for doing your fucking job. That's what you get so no I'm going to take that as a strong no fair though very fair I like this one favorite cheese for a cheeseburger because it's time for brigandage cheese all right here. We go favorite cheese for cheeseburger. Everybody it's gotTa Be Jack. I don't know how it's not pepper. Jack how are you not infusing a little kick in your burger and it goes great with a Avocados spread as well so you WanNa dance with a little bacon on top ads? That Punch Bo pepper. Jack I think honestly. I think it's going to be cheddar cheese. I love good Cheddar cheeseburger with all the fixings minus pickles. I don't like pickles on my Burger. Think it's mostly because of the the texture it's a texture thing more than it is a taste thing if there was some sort of invention. It's like you know like pickle pickle spray could have the taste of the pickle with the texture of the pickle. I would choose that but also just. We're going cheddar cheese with everything. Maybe it'll sliced onion in there. That's that's the perfect cheeseburger. Have you ever had the The New York dill pickle chips. I think it's the deep river brand. Nope you should give that a shot. If you like the pickle taste without the pickle texture. Hey gentlemen this is bringing the cheese. Could you leave your pickles in your pants? All right all right. That's that's our next segment touching the pickle. God pickle continent big area. That's that's actually better. I think you guys are a good. Bring the segment where we're kind of on the same page. I love the chatter and pepper. Jack Answers really really good answers. I'm not going to pick a favorite because I think those are two really good ones. Let me throw a wildcard at you though something to consider. Maybe if you've had pepper Jack or Cheddar or five or six days a week if you're eating that many burgers. Gouda is a good burger cheese. It's Hardier yeah and it's got it's got a like a a an earth a smokiness to it. Lets you know. It's Gouda without getting in the way of the Burger condiments some oaky notes to it if Okay yes that's right. Let it swish that cheese around your mouth. That was a really good bringing. The cheese segment. Can't wait for episode one seventy. We may even have another one. This podcast who knows. Who's you're getting? Bryce harper the next decade draft and bringing that she is in the same podcast. This is crazy. Who's your ballsy quote out on a limb pick for being arguably the best player in baseball two years from now yeah. I'm looking for ballsy here. So so people like that. Not really what? We're looking for ballsy two. I think that's I think that's a reasonably sect aggressive pack. I feel like it is. I feel like it is because I'm looking for him to take some steps offensively. Yeah he does by wins above replacement if he takes another step off pensively combined with that defense he would have a solid case. It's just that well. That's what separates him in. My opinion from Bregman is what Bregman has done and can do often simply up until this point and whatever But that's that's a separate. Yup that makes sense nobody else on the planet. Defense wise dared I was going to go Fernando Totti's junior just for those two. Were like this fucking Oakland you so it is an Oakland. Honk pick I as Lindores ballsy pick. No no I'm looking for more. You're looking for like Victor Oba's look invoice. If you believe it I believe it okay. Victory Best Player in baseball. I'M GONNA go with a guy who hasn't even debuted yet. I'M GONNA GO WONDER. Franko the rays shortstop prospect. Because I do think obviously we have no idea how good is ultimately going to be.

He was written off to the side and I was like all good all good as long as we're on the same page. Now okay. Cool so to refresh memories here for those who have not been following the whole time. I can't imagine anybody hasn't but jared steam Mike Trout Gleyber Torres. Mookie Betts Walker Buehler's Zander Bogart's Mike Clemenger my team Juan Soto Ronald a Kunia cody. Bellinger Fernando Totti's Jack Clarity and Rafael Devers and Taoist Francisco. Indoor Shane Bieber Christian Yelich. Alex Bregman Bryce Harper. This week's guest and ca- Morte as I said we have six picks left jared. You're on the board first with your seventh pick. As a reminder you need a third baseman and outfielder a starting pitcher a d. h. slash utility person a first basement and a catcher. So is this. Jared to me or jared to you jared. Oh No. This is jared me you. It's right back to the original order. So it's it's three outfielders first second short. Third Catcher D. H. Utility. No no no. That's one position it's just slash utility. I just didn't want you to think you had to actually pick A. D. H. Gotten and how many pitchers three total okay so you've selected to Yep Yep okay. I've got my old draft board over here so jurors three pitchers total. Jared has two so far Dallas and I each have one So jared at your convenience Sir this is great I love the I love the draft a lot. A lot of great names still on my board really happy with my position. But it's not about me right now. It's it is about me so if we could all just chill for a second. We could all just relax. Don't want to make any rash decisions here. Yeah should be fully informed competent in your selection. I'll man I am. There's two positions that I'm going back and forth on I can see that I mean what Dallas wanted to say if you don't feel it now might be in the market for for a D. H. Yeah you just say yeah. I know I know exactly what you're saying I will. I will sit on him. I will just sit on him. He will just be the D. H. Two so you can't overlook don't overlook me in this. I'm between the two of you. Yeah that's right and I know who you're talking about is the craving the middle of this donut. Yeah I mean it's a IT'S A. It's a ballsy pick. Yeah I mean on pure pure production to this point. It's early but this is about the next. Ten years is about the next ten years so with that in mind. My Next Selection Pedro Alonzo. Wow obviously obviously a good pump fake by you there. I'll tell you why I love the pick. I'll tell you why I love it and why. I think you could have justified going. Alonzo as early as three rounds ago because it is not clear other than him who else is actually good and young and at first base. What Deng Don Johnson? How old is awesome? It's what I think. Two years older maybe than pedal on I don't know I'm not saying he's old. I'm saying Lake. Look at thirty thirty eight. Yeah He's twenty six and holds Pedro. Lonzo I'm looking. He is twenty-five so you're separates them all right. Well maybe I'll take metals. I think the point stands that there is not a lot of young up and coming first Baseman who are actually proven assets if you WANNA put Matt Olsen in that category with the Lonzo. That's fine but I don't think there's anybody else. Lonzo is in the category with meddlesome. You're talking about okay okay. You're missing period using runs into fifty plus tanks in his first year. And we're giving him the best first basement title in baseball. I think you're miss. I think you're missing the larger point here. Which is that. You can't name another person after that. I'd Oh I mean after the one that you said we could yes yes so after Matt Olsen who is on the draft board. Of course I mean reese Hoskins what he is after twenty nine thousand nine Josh Bell. Basically riding a strong one half of season right yes while we beef with any of that commentary there as not initially sure anybody else. I was trying to. I was trying to give Pete Alonzo and that pick credit. Your Madison was not adequately respected in the in the intro to the conversation. Thank you for dressing you. Welcome Alonzo is the pick pick that that brings to me and I'm absolutely going to do it. I'm going to install wha junior is my d. h wow walk. Oh man keep in mind keep in mind. The trades are available. We've seen plenty of trades in the past so just keep that in mind. He's just WanNa let you know that he's available. Welcome back. Jared love backing Dallas. You're up a toupee but all right. Yeah that was a mistake. I got one more outfield. Spot also got shit. I mean I always feel like I just got forced into this right now and I don't like that feeling I well. I'm interested to see what that means. We're having a conversation faulk and I got two picks here all right. I gotta go. Oh Shit Man I start the truth. I just feel like these spots you're going to. There's nobody there afterwards. It's going to be doing doing it. I got it I I feel like I almost Hewitt it. I GIMME Realm Utah and nettlesome. Alright Yeah you can't certainly you couldn't have talked all that garbage in the not taken. Olsen. Could've yeah you could have sure I have the great pleasure of announcing breaking the first trade the next decade draft we have a trade we have a trade just like Jimmie Foxx and Ted Williams were swapped in the all time player draft. Perhaps one day we will look back at this as this generation's version of Fox Williams Pete Alonzo's coming team. Just and Vlad Junior team jared find God leroy classics swap of One Pick. Pick pick taking one spot apart. You gotTa Love It. That's just an old fashioned baseball trade. That's all that is just an old fashioned baseball trade happy. I feel someone said it was like when you Miss Ted Williams and then we rectified. That yeah all right so give me a second. I need to adjust my lineup here. I've already done it. I've already made the adjustments okay. I know who I'm GonNa pick then I am going to take. I will dwell on this for very long. I'M GONNA take a second baseman. I'm GonNa Take Ozzy Albee's we're jared. You're up for two to right here. Correct all right so see. I'm going to take five star while jared. Thanks some draft commentary. Five starting pitchers still yet to be taken in this draft. Why ARMS GONNA be coming off the board boys I I. I feel like we're all at the point where you're trying to way though you're making decisions right now on your head trying to figure out where the grounds crew is going to end up voting percent correct does the grounds crew understand that drove. That's a huge part of my Vlad. Pick if I'm being honest I then traded him of course but sure but I mean because there's I mean you could pick three names in a row essentially from anybody in the starting pitching pool. Yeah I mean I I think I I know who I want I. That's the first step that is the Oh man one of them is one of these picks is kind of a gamble and I don't know how popular it will like. That's why am I trying to trying to win a baseball game or my trying to win the fuck in vote on twitter. We'll that's what you're trying to. You're clearly trying to win the vote on twitter. I'm trying to do both I'm trying to do. You can't do both because one team doesn't equal that team based on based on based on the voting. Yeah I mean I think I know. I think I know what you're thinking you're given that little you can't put. David let your under the spotlight. He deserves fuck. You have to picture reminder so I've already made one in my head okay. Give me Mike Saroka. Oh Nice okay. Good young arm nice man. He was on my shortlist for pitchers that I would ca- take your mic Saroka. And you know what I think for my final outfielder. I'd like to take victor. Ooh Yeah Yeah I would. Yeah that's interesting a for wind player at the age of twenty two elite defensive player interesting. He's four win player age. Twenty two. It's back to me I again. I'm pretty comfortable with this. One especially as he compliments the first pitcher in my rotation. I'M GONNA go ahead and go a little skew a little bit older. But we're going to win a lot of games in the present Garrett Cole thank you. Oh Yeah how old is Garrett Cole? Thirty five thirty six. I think he's right around real muto's age gear. Kohl's of very young twenty nine very young forty nine. Yeah he's almost exactly the same age as JT Ruutel. Only one of them's been taking a beating behind the plate for the last decade God flaherty and Coal Holy Shit. So it's my turn her. Yeah you got doubles here..

tomorrow they'll be happy to kind of get our fix I know I'm going to need it I know Major League Baseball and different platforms thrown out a bunch of classic games to more people to watch it's not gonna be the same tomorrow's supposed to be opening day we don't know when this is going to happen but today here's a way to get today and what about Corey Seidman NBC sports Philadelphia second here to talk about all the stuff today there was a whole bunch Jeff Passan ESPN Ken Rosenthal of the athletic and Jayson stark and everyone was kind of writing about Hey baseball trying to get together down figure out what this could look like when it does return Scott Boras that idea for the World Series are Christmas twice weekly double headers and all star week start kind of starting the season with the all star game there's a lot of ideas being floated in the I I think you just have a vote you probably would vote in like the most popular players like Bryce Harper yeah they did a fan vote right now who to get in Mike trout Bryce Harper I think those guys that like have a random good year who don't vote for them because you don't know what's going to happen you don't have any sex or anything like that well that's a good thing let's let's bring a Corey Seidman NBC sports Philadelphia joining us right now what's up Corey not much your I think I was outside for eleven seconds to learn so you know it's just another day another day in quarantine yeah you know what's happened to me Korean I think part of it is the the rhythm of the sports calendar like the Sixers play Tuesday all of you know that Phillies have this spring training in this day I just have no idea what day it is like I know the weekends the weekend as I'm not doing a show but like I I don't even know what day it is like Tuesday Wednesday it's all the same right now yeah I totally hear you I feel the same way in like every article I've written recently I've written the wrong there's always you know if I'm saying you know this players at this on Monday or this guy's like I always have a drunkard we in that way still the dog days of the baseball season because quite frankly that's how it gets during a hundred sixty two game schedule for me as well yeah well we're not having one of those this year that that that is that's for certain we don't know what the season will look like hopefully will be played the court today there a lot ideas being thrown out by people that know people in baseball weather be Jeff Passan or Ken Rosenthal Jayson stark ideas what this could look like don't know throw a couple at you and you tell me what you thought when you saw or as I say it what's your thought on it seems like they want to play as many games as possible when we're allowed to to make it a representative season you know if we start in July we're looking at basically half a year but today I I saw a passive wrote that players are open to the idea of of maybe up to once a week or twice a week having double headers what do you think about that I think it's going to be a necessity because to me it feels like the magic numbers like a hundred twenty issue games if you can get that many in the season I don't think they sold one any fewer than a hundred and when you start to think about how long how deep you're going to get into the calendar let's say you know even if you were the most optimistically instead of the regular season could potentially start on June first okay if it's a hundred twenty greens into regular season if it starts on June first even if you have no off days that would end in works like for suckers out in October right so then you're talking about the beginning of the playoffs the plastic about what three three and a half weeks and months so the very safest estimate would have that season ended in early November so I just feel like you're gonna have to have double headers in some form it would be irresponsible I think baseball to having three forties a week once a week all year I would to AT and record the thing is if the players are okay with that that then I and then I'm on board I would think they wouldn't be because of that what it would do to them but the one part about is if we if we go down that route if they're gonna do multiple double headers a week to make it a more representative season they have to adjust the rosters that they have to help these teams especially with pitchers like I already I'm projecting there's going to be more injuries because picture to try to ramp back up and it's it's gonna be a whole thing like the whole the whole set up of the twenty six man roster the limits on pictures that they'd have to ease that or change that well I think it's going to be an expanded roster when the season first begins and it might be an expanded roster all the way through you know you could see roster as the twenty eight guys thirty die instead of twenty six because think about what the issues are brought up right starting pitchers are not going to be going deep into games especially the first month or so of this regular season like it's gonna be quite a while until the team feels comfortable turning loose their east coast seven innings because you got to be thinking about the long term I mean there are some benefits to that as well because you know the shortened season I'm thinking of a guy like Aaron always been a two hundred twelve innings and two hundred two innings the last few years now what he has no choice but to have a a lesser workload in twenty twenty so perhaps that helps him out long term but I I'm with you on the pitching injuries it's a major concern that's why I don't think it should be double headers multiple days a week because then thank you probably first possibly appearing in both games of a doubleheader you know you just open up all these other cans of worms Corey Seidman NBC sports Philadelphia joining us here as we discuss you know what's going on with all these talks in baseball how they could put this season together whatever starts a Corey Tesco Boris and I'm not surprised he would he become a radical idea he doesn't mind the idea of this thing lasting till next Christmas and having neutral site games the playoffs Corey I am okay with that to start the season without fans just so they could start the season I'll I'll watch and listen to baseball even if I can't go to baseball games but the idea on the back and if it lasts really long already the thought is well I will play in neutral sites where it's warmer so like Philadelphia New York Boston you really can't play baseball there November December but you can and Miami in Arizona what not I feel like the post season without the fans because of the weather and and the date that wouldn't feel right I don't think baseball plays right in a neutral site what do you think no I don't I wouldn't like that either I mean it would result in a winning team the fans what no fan would have gotten to experience that that clinching World Series game which is you know that's that's a tough pill to swallow I mean I don't think this is gonna last Christmas that's you know fun content from sky force but I think there are other issues at play to like Christmas is one of the biggest things that you're looking at the calendar they're still NFL regular season going on it's beach season baseball would really be competing for eyeballs at the World Series repeat right around that time I don't think it's going to get that far it's a great you know you can't have an outdoor sport that you know go that long when you're still making some cold weather cities like baseball it's not like football it's not designed to be played in thirty degree weather we see that in April every year when you know you have guys wearing long sleeves and your skin grip the ball in those early season
The Brewers are working on contract extension with Christian Yelich that could exceed $200 million
"Christian Yelich might be the next superstar in sports to put pen to paper on a massive contract the brewers India which are closing in on what is being reported as a nine year two hundred fifteen million dollar contract now if you're like me when you first hear that nine years and two hundred fifteen million for Christian Yelich who was the MVP two seasons ago any runner up for the most valuable player award last year when he got hurt and missed a month you're probably thinking to fifteen does not seem like enough and I would tend to agree with you about that he is taking a dramatic discount to sign this extension which is basically seven years a hundred ninety million in new money when you just saw it the rain don't who hadn't been in the top two in MVP voting over the last two years in the National League get seven years and two hundred forty five million to go to the angels in free agency when you've seen our unato in Colorado no one or not get a massive two hundred and thirty plus million dollar contract over eight seasons and here we're talking about new money seven and one ninety for a guy who might be the best player in the National League the deal was first reported today by the athletics some of the details of trickled out of come from ESPN's Jeff Passan he's got this basically yellowish would play the next two seasons starting this year on his current contract so he's scheduled to make I was about to say only how funny is that only twelve and a half million in two thousand twenty and then fourteen million next year but you know I laughed at that as far as the production B. provides and and the elite performance is gonna provide Daddy's shopping in the bargain bin that's finding one of your favorite movies in the five dollar DVD been at your favorite electronics store so the extension for that seventy one ninety would basically kick in for the brewers in two thousand twenty two and go through two thousand twenty eight and there be a mutual option in the final year in twenty twenty nine but you go back two seasons ago when Yelich won the M. V. P. he established himself after leaving Miami where he was an excellent hater and a lot of folks felt like maybe he would win a batting title at some point but didn't get a lot of help we did have a lot of production and protection rather to go along with his production there just weren't players around him as good as him to help him out as they were going to getting rid of all their pieces Giancarlo Stanton Marcello's owner he was the last guy standing so we got to go to Milwaukee and give it a try there and immediately flourished completely took off and became one of the greats in the sport and for my money right now this moment Christian Yelich of the brewers is the most underrated player in baseball which might sound ludicrous considering that he wanted MVP award is finished in the top two twice in two years but I still think when we have conversations in this industry about who the best baseball players are Mike trout's name comes out of everyone's mouth first then you get some of the bigger names that maybe don't even belong in that conversation right now based on performance like Bryce Harper Manny Machado those types but who is the second best player in the sport yeah which might be the answer Cody Bellinger won the MVP award with the Dodgers last year is in that vicinity I'd say there's a a four player tier behind trout vying for the number two seed in the sport with the yellow shoes twenty eight Ballenger who's only twenty four just barely starting to think about Mookie Betts becks is now twenty seven went from Boston to LA this offseason in a deal that took forever to consummate and Alex Bregman the twenty five year old villain now with the Astros who is so much better four in the wake of finding out that Houston Bregman has cheated over the last couple of seasons at least dating back to seventeen and some of eighteen that they've admitted to Bregman the MVP of the American League last year in my opinion ended up not finishing right behind trout and I kind of quantify things as non trout division because he should just get the award every year so I kind of say well other than trap who was the MVP this year you're competing against a legend the likes of which is going to go down as maybe the best players ever lived or one of them no one of the mount Rushmore baseball stars essentially and a guy that you'll meet people listening right now we're not gonna see another player like him probably in our
Bryce Harper has no regrets entering Year 2 with Phillies: 'Just so happy to be here'
"Mind a calendar year after Philadelphia made so many big moves Bryce Harper ended up there they were the focus of much of the offseason storyline I guess last year you couldn't go anywhere Scott without people saying what do you think Miller Machado Harper Machado are gonna end up now the Phillies seemingly after a disappointing year managerial change finer the radar a bit is is that fair to say still an incredible amount of talent secure for Bryce Harper but I find them kind of intriguing in a division that's just loaded loaded loaded loaded yeah I mean that that that east is going to be very interesting I mean I was at Matt's camp I think the day before I was in Jupiter perhaps it was either the day before I saw the cardinals or the day after I mean the Mets rotation I've got like six or seven starters buying for five spots you know it's not just a gram center guard but it's strong man and I mean even Rick Porcello who has a sigh young on his resume and or sell and and and Michael Walker and you know I mean it pieces could fall together well there you know Atlanta is done really well the last couple years and yeah I mean in clear water today you know a ton of optimism I mean you know you would think you know Bryce Harper is kind of on the Manny Machado program both of them had such chaotic offseasons a year ago that you know you would think with everything calmed down yeah baby our world in his second year have a have or even you know better year last year or so so some of these numbers you know we were pretty good but others by his standards warrant I'm talking to him today yeah the biggest thing disappointed in him as he finished with a less than a hundred walks in he said there's no way I should ever have less than our walk so yeah that suggested that he would you know he was kind of maybe a little too eager not as patient last year but you think of our comes back big thing with them is that somebody injuries last year you don't have a conscience back yes I don't know if he's gonna be ready for the start of the season but he should be ready shortly there after yeah Koch and you know they were her last year with with this many you know knee injury Arianna was hurt hello while last year the young couple their relievers war the LG but if I get a little bit of good good lot of hell yeah JT real Miro's probably that is gonna catchers there is in the game right now and yeah you put him in Bryce Harper yeah add a DD Gregorius from the Yankees he'll play shortstop and she's a girl bounce over to sac and there's there's a lot to like about this team you know I heard all of the bounce back year but they added yeah nation as well Yolanda talent we will get over that side this you were there last year and holy cow you just you know look at and what they have on paper all of the guys they can throw at you during the spring so these games when you see you know twenty five thirty guys it's it's remarkable so that that division is going to be some to see and I don't know make maybe the nationals team that actually won the World Series maybe they're fine under the radar as well because of everything so maybe some you know sleeping giants in the NL east from a storyline standpoint yeah exactly I mean you're right I will talk about the bats in the Phillies and and yeah all the national there yeah and by the way there already we're dealing like the forgotten team looks like you're right could you imagine he's going to beat them last year and then this all came out and they were sharing a complex is all that would be so bad that it would be first of all you're right just in the west Palm Beach it would be really awkward at that complex second of all for baseball I mean thank god I didn't wait a second time in three years last year that would be it would be even worse than it is right now Scott Miller from bleacher report Turner sports big league
Bryce Harper dishes on Phillies potentially trading for Kris Bryant
"But Bryce Harper came in yesterday after you had already left and he I'm I thought he explain things perfectly people Phillies fans are inoperable or that the Phillies won't go into luxury tax territory right now and make a trade for a guy named Kris Bryant from that listen a B. B. grade get Kris Bryant but he's a free right you have to trade something significant to get on that's the point even going to luxury tax territory so endemic fell I actually thought explained it was explained it well on Friday the at the trade deadline if they're playing well and they feel like they're legitimate contenders they're willing to go into the luxury tax but they're not gonna do it right now I'm totally fine with that well I think more than the luxury tax is what do you trade any make feel made a point and then claim tech does is well and he's not a free agent but they've lost draft picks which is no excuse for that for two steps making mony act and some other stuff I forget his name that was drafted in the first round they just flat out step Cornelius Randolph gets hazy looks like a platoon player he was alive now that was known Monique sucks it well you're given to give him some time where are ya hit one ninety nine so but whatever the case may be so they complain that they traded away to get players will they wouldn't have been as good if they didn't sign the free agents so that's why they lost the match their own fault because they didn't develop a farm system so what do you trade for Kris Bryant you're not gonna trade Spencer Howard and you're not going to trade to bow out bonus is your number one piece Spencer Harris number two and then the name that's being talked about a Scott Kingery and there's no chance those are trading stocking re for Kris Bryant not absolutely and they should now and they should Keister best second baseman and he's he's a good player is going to cut down the strikeouts but the reality is what do you treat you don't have enough to trade because then you're there already barren in the farm system then you're really and you know who won the mage the only down the major league level might be sky king re but he's not good enough or they don't need Reese Hoskins because bombs probably going to end up down the line is a first right and and they're probably gonna be a DH at some point soon the cubs in the National League company Hoskins because they have rich now so what did they trade so nine the luxury tack and John Middleton stated it I forget what it was but it was in the engineer and they said they're not gonna do it to compete for a wild card they'll do it to be run Irish contender I understand that so me too if it's only going to get you into the playoffs what's the sense if you know you're not going to go for if it's not enough to get you far in the playoffs but they'll have a better idea at the because Phillies fans that haven't seen playoff baseball in a long time frustrated and and and other Senate lately how are you understand that that that that we'd like to see playoffs here and I still think this team is a second wild card contender just because if you're if you're if you're gonna get eighty some wins your contender for the second wildcard but like it if this point Hey how're here's what I know it okay the division winners let's just say it's the Braves in the nationals the actually the cardinals aren't the number one team in the central it would be us the cubs cubs cardinals over a Cup's corners or Milwaukee improved Milwaukee correct okay on the west it's lost list Los Angeles all right so now those are the three so so for the wild card it's either Washington or Atlanta the Mets are in there any either Saint Louis miss out on yeah the teams in the set of the Arizona was improved last year I mean it did when I say they're contender that doesn't mean that there are yeah that that there are there are there a a favorite to do it right but it's so that so that's a Philly fans are saying they're saying look listen you're not good enough right now so go out and make a trade how here's what I know right you can't build a baseball team that's going to win a World Series with free agents you're just not going to because they have a limit they're not the Dodgers are not gonna spend three to forty million dollars you need younger players from your farm system and I thought the fans fall to the Phillies have done a poor job building the team and they don't have a lot in their minor league system to do it it's up to his fans fault but it doesn't mean that you're going to trade your top prospect who is your everyday third baseman it in a year
NBA trade deadline: Winners, losers and teams in between
"Flurry of trades in the NBA a blockbuster in baseball mortar common colds to memorialize Kobe Bryant and highly visible way joined by ESPN's Howard Bryant good morning hours good morning Scott how are you I'm fine thanks is awesome aggressive deals in the NBA trade at the trade deadline who do you rack up as the winners and losers well and I'm not sure about the winners and losers of the trade deadline but certainly the winners and losers right now of the first half of the season you've got a look at the Lakers in the west and and the Milwaukee Bucks I think they are head and shoulders above everybody else how could you hold on for a moment our you know head yes government for you almost got me for a second there's got yeah Milwaukee is terrific and and they're great they're holding on the crushed Philadelphia the other night I thought coming into the season it was gonna be Philadelphia Milwaukee Los Angeles and Los Angeles Lakers and the clippers but I'm not too sure about the other two yet but we've got a long way to go I think trade deadline wise I think Miami Heat got much much better they got on great good dollar they made a very good deal with Memphis I think that Philadelphia tried to shore up of making a deal with with the warriors and de Angelo Russell going to Minnesota who knows what that's gonna do maybe there's a late run there but the bottom line is coming forward right now I still think that you've got two teams in this league disappointed the Boston Celtics didn't do anything but I think it's the box and the Lakers right now an official memorial for Kobe Bryant's been set for February twenty fourth they've been calls to make his image a permanent part of the game you even rent a Poland that did I did I read a little Twitter poll this morning which was soundly rejected to replace Kobe Bryant is Jerry west to is the logo of the NBA with cut him a cell away from the silhouette of your request yes absolutely and it would have been fitting in some ways because Jerry west was the the man behind making sure Kobe Bryant ended up with the Lakers making that draft day trade with the Charlotte Hornets and I I understand add on one on one level the need or they want to want to memorialize Kobe I also understand that the NBA has been around since nineteen forty seven and maybe it's time to create a new logo Jerry west has been there fifty years since nineteen sixty nine however I do think that if you're going to think about and I'm a new logo or and a modern logo it's probably got to be Michael Jordan right or but I got an arm and a leg yeah but I also understand the desire right now for people to feel that something should be done for Kobe Bryant after after all that happened Boston Red Sox LA Dodgers Minnesota Twins switching sports agreed to a three team trade Tuesday that's been perhaps delay it has been delayed because of some medical records Mookie Betts has what they call a generational player MVP Golden Gloves traded to the Dodgers are the red Sox making the worst roster decision since they sold Babe Ruth's contract well if you red Sox fans are very happy about it especially because it's a generational player Mookie Betts is a beloved player two years ago he wins the M. B. P. and they won the World Series you're looking at a guy that fans just adore and it's a very cynical move in some ways but it also may very well be a huge business deal for them because number one we know that super star players now at this level after Manny Machado deal after the Bryce Harper deal your it in and now the the Gerrit Cole deal you're looking at three hundred and fifty four hundred million dollars to sign a player and if Mookie Betts didn't want to play with the red Sox will find out over the next several weeks and months if that was the case then of course they had to move them but on the other hand if that's not the case the red Sox are a super power they can sign whoever they want they've got money it's looking like a cynical deal we will see I'm good at and by the way I got as you know your cubs aren't far behind because you've got a guy like Chris Brian who's another cornerstone player and what does that mean for the cubs keep these players and the fans love him yeah thank you very much ESPN's Howard Bryant thanks so much no my pleasure

NBA Draft: Odds Say Sixers Won't Trade Ben Simmons or Joel Embiid
"Now what a great way to end Tuesday night as you had the NBA draft lottery as a Sixers fan here in Philadelphia. The draft lottery has been the highlight of a season forget the off season. It's been the season for a long time. I didn't come. Joel Embiid incomes. Ben Simmons incomes Marquel. Who? Oh, yeah. Forgot about him for a second there. The collars, Bryan Colangelo. Cherry Colangelo in town the draft lottery. Symbolizes what's bad the nightmare though. The worst of sports you're stuck down. They're not necessarily in purgatory. But if you can't flip things and turn things around and take advantage of where you are. You're going to be stuck down there. So for me, and I know a lot of other people outside of New York City. It was a great highlight. And you know, maybe even outside of Manhattan because I'm sure a lot of Mets fans in Brooklyn. And. Staten Island and Long Island. We're looking and thinking my Knicks fan alkyl or cousin or brother mom. I can't wait to go back and give it to them that they thought they had I on in their hands. And then the Knight's capped off as you just heard with the splash brothers back. In fact, and I don't know what people thought was going to happen. Because far too often what you have something in front of you. And I deal with this constantly when I talk in tweet about game of thrones, which we'll get to not specifically. But it brought up a question that I throw out on Twitter Chander show for a question of the night ten minutes from now, but think about this. Kevin Durant goes out, you know, he's out game one game two of the season series. So immediately there is this shift like man Golden State's in trouble Golden State's not the same team. It's going to take a lot for Golden State to hold off Portland who comes in with that backward. Hungary and healthy. But in fact, a lot of people for for different reasons. I'm sure have turned their back on Steph curry it's got to the point where outside of that explosion that we saw that thirty three point explosion in the second half to close out game. Six people were actually going on social media and having this conversation about how I saw and it wasn't some random egg account with thirty three followers in Arkansas. This was legit conversation going back and forth about Steph curry never really that. Great in the postseason and other guys carrying him. All of a sudden legacy is at question. And I thought to myself this is what happens when you don't have LeBron James in the postseason when you don't have a default guy that you can go to and say, oh, yeah. Legacy impacted by every little decision or every little thing that's done. Instead you needed to find somebody else with Kevin Durant out. I guess the default guy was. Steph curry, so maybe you thought that Portland could come in and steal a game. And maybe thought that Golden State just didn't quite feel right? Just didn't quite look right against the clippers or there was something about them against Houston. And now minus Durant their prime for being beat in. What are these two games? Well, they came out, and as you heard at the moment in which Steph curry knocks down six three pointer or the night. This thing was not in question and usual suspects step up imagine that Steph curry Klay Thompson Draymond green with another great defensive effort throughout. So what were you looking for for a team that played I think everybody on their bench? I think every single person that suited up played for the Golden State Warriors, which as we know it's been a stark contrast in years prior where there's like two or three guys off the bench and a t run. But I think what happened is you start to look. And maybe it's subconsciously. I don't know. But you start to look for reasons and you start to look for cracks and you start to look for wear and pinpoint the exact moment in which the Golden State Warriors are falling apart. And I know odds makers out there will play off your emotions they will play off your emotions more so than your brain and way, more so than your wallet, your wallet's an afterthought if they can get your heart if they can get you betting with your heart more, so than your brain you've lost. It doesn't matter how much juice your pay. It doesn't matter. What you're bringing back. It doesn't matter. What your percentages on what you're bringing in the moment that you're locked in betting with your heart. It's over and I see that happening in Phillies constantly odds.

"My point is Bryce Harper outside of the weather and more of a salary Bryce opposite a better situation. Philadelphia's four no Philadelphia is expected to be a contender. They're expected anticipated to make the postseason ain't nobody accused Anaheim angels of doing that the Los Angeles angels of Anaheim, anybody accusing them of doing that. You got auspice. It ain't gonna correct. The problem you need more you need more than trout, Bryce Harper. By the way, I'd make the argument better fan base. Philadelphia that rabid fan base that let you off the hook. Let's go hold you accountable. They drove up from they drove Dan from Philly to DC just Abedian support Bryce Harper in his first game back. On home turf of the Washington nationals way played in start for the last few years. Let me tell you something right now. Those bulls they're misguided. Now. Somebody was steaming. I mean, hey, what's your problem them? I mean, they had the right to boo villa. Pig customer. Yeah. We know. That's not the point. Here is the point that the Washington nationals do everything they could to keep Bryce Harper. Your first offer was for three hundred million not three hundred and thirty million a hundred million of it was deferred over thirty three years. So essentially what you were doing was you came to Bryce Harper with the kind kinda low ball offer, you knew neither him nor Boris would accept and as Scott Boris that is as a result, you knew that he was leaving your practically push them out the damn dog. And by the way, if I remember correctly new, no the report stated that second offered a Bryce Harper was worse than the first offer. When you knew Manny Machado was going to get three hundred billion. When you could interpret their travels, go get over four hundred million. You come to Bryce Harper with one hundred million dollars deferred over thirty three years. You didn't wanna keep that? Boy. You want to keep that, man. You pushed about the door. Of your fans of the Washington nationals. How come you born in the organization? How come you? Now, bowling them. That's what I want to know. Because as far as that's exactly what the hell you should be doing. That is exactly what the hell. You should be doing. I mean, you absolutely, positively have got to be kidding me. Twenty six years old with his upside. And you're going to come to him. With an offer where a third of the money is deferred. And we aint talking about a deferment over a couple of years. We're talking about deferred over thirty three years. So in other words, his two hundred million instead of three hundred million and other one hundred million dollars. Ladies and gentlemen, we will defer. Up until Bryce Harper. It's fifty nine years old. Think about how much damn sense that makes that's what they did. And nobody's talking about that. But it needs to be talking about because I would say this. It was very disrespectful. It was very disrespectful to make a star of his caliber. Such an offer. It was insult. Think about that. What started the, you know would have accepted that Secondly, by the way, you gotta managing day Martinez, who I respect, but I got news for you know, here in better than dusty Baker so far not good. It was better than the dusty than the US. Dave martinez. This look at the numbers. So I'll look at it from that standpoint..
"bryce harper" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Okay. So fact checked this whole when you count firm flation, it's not the the best contract ever. And there's something to it. Because Giancarlo Stanton sign that contract in two thousand fourteen cents then on average, the US dollar has seen inflation rate rise of about one point two three percent per year. So prices in this country or about six point three percent higher than they were back in two thousand and fourteen and he only made five million extra dollars on a contract that surpass three hundred million dollars. So Dan, you are correct with your take does anyone care about that though? I don't think that I think people here the three hundred thirty million and Scott Boras is egos soaked and savvy enough to know that you throw that number out there people don't care much of the about the math after that. We just thinking of Boers reputation. Do we know that Harper wasn't like? His ear saying I just want the biggest baseball contract ever know what a great point. But STAN was saying he wanted the longest contract he could possibly get the rare. Great point by Chris, Cody, even he seems surprised by it. Yeah. But about Scott Boras. Okay. Bryce Harper was in his ear. He really had to fight. Scott Scott Boris on that I want the biggest contract ever. But if it's report he said is saying that he was offered four years one hundred and sixty five million. So that he would have got his one percent of that. And then in four years been able to negotiate a new contract stay, why do we care so much about this rebel create an entire cottage industry around the idea of sports business and explaining sports business to people who clearly care about these numbers. Why do we care this way? We are talking more baseball because of these damn contracts than we ever talk when they're playing game. We haven't even got into signing. Bonuses, dan. Did you see Bryce he's only making ten million this year because of that twenty million dollar signing bonus. He's getting that's awesome. Oh my God. I would signed a one million dollar contract year thirteen years one million dollars, and then got an a three hundred and seventeen million dollar signing bonus. I love that ESPN tweeted out that Bobby Baena is gonna be paid by the Mets for three years after the Phillies. Stop. Paying Bryce Harper that Bobby in the nineties signed that contract that paid him a million dollars a year every year, and I've seen business people break down and say that's not the way to do it. You shouldn't do it that way. But Baena was like, look, I'm not blowing my money. I'm going to make a million dollars a year for three or four years after Bryce Harper makes basically winning the lottery every year every year. How would you do if you win the lottery, would you take the lump sum or would you do the yearly payouts 'cause if you do the lump sum, they cut it in half, basically? And then you gotta pay taxes like another house. You're basically getting a quarter of whatever the winnings are. But if you take it all over like thirty year pay you get all of it. And then you lose half of it in taxes or whatever. But you know, you look I'm gonna get like thirty million dollars this year, and I'll never blow look I can probably blow four hundred million dollars. I mean, I don't think I actually could. But everybody does it. So I guess I could to everybody does a lot. Yeah. Dan winters. Not very many people do not. No, wait a minute. Do the testing. Yes. Lottery winners. Go broke it like an eighty percent rate. Yes. They're not the ones that are winning field million..

"A on the call cannot wait to hear those guys calling Bryce Harper games. Bryce Harper home runs. You name it. That's what it's gonna be. Welcome back. Eleven o'clock hour, I am rebels on a monumental day. Not just in Phillies history. But in the history of Philadelphia sports. Yes, it is that big a deal that is not hyperbole the Phillies walked up Bryce Harper. Thirteen years three hundred and thirty million dollars. Breaking the Jean Carlos Stanton. Mark highest contract in the history of the game for Bryce Harper the Phillies sought after some big stars this summer. Manny Machado ends up. Padre Bryce Harper ends up being a Philly and John Middleton backs up. His words. This is a huge huge. Really? Seismic type of signing in a game of baseball. That the Phillies can land this guy. And I was thinking about this. I was talking to Jack about this store and one of the brakes. He's worth thirty four is whole major league life. We know thirty four the last person award. Here was ROY halladay now hall of fame Phillies, wall of fame, but the numbers not retired yet. Bryce is such a historian of the game. Bryce has been around long enough to a faced ROY. That it makes you wonder if he will. In fact, we're thirty four I don't know. I mean, I think it could go either way they did let map where it after. But that was obviously circumstances change. Yeah. That was prior to ROY passing. I. I if I guess, and I know some people don't care about this kind of stuff. I do I like numbers. I always been in the guys numbers. I would guess he doesn't wear. That's just my guess. But I get it for a marketing standpoint that that's the number. He's worn. It's part of his Twitter handle. It's a big deal to guys. But. Yeah. I guess if I'd venture a guess or lean one way or the other I'd say he'd probably wear something else. I'm gonna say single digit. I'm gonna go single digit seven three and four together. We love seven. I think Bronco will give that up. Listen, listen, Michael you, find a new number. You can find a new number or and be he's got three hundred and thirty million where he could kick Michael a little something something new a new car, Michael. I got you. I'll take care of you who what is it is. He a Range Rover guy seems like one I think he I check if you look at his followers. The only follows Twenty-three people one of them. I think is is a is a car company. Whatever it is. I'm sure they'll be able to hook Mike L up. If you want it. Let's go to Daniel and port Richmond. Daniel. All right. So your producer. I'm said I could have the next thirty minutes to to just need. We'll give you more. We will. I'll give it all to. I'll just go home. So the first thing is I hope citizens Bank marketing director listening and put up a billboard in southwest. We're near the the ballpark. How you're going to get it on ninety five. You're absolutely unequivocal. I wanted in DC I wanted to capitol sweet job right there. Thanks shell is here. So so that's one of the things I want the other thing is is we talked like maybe a week or two ago. And I was I was convinced that he wasn't coming here. And after listening to you for about an hour, or so you actually convince me that he was coming and to like, your puppy your chest out you should because like I wasn't convinced. I was thinking we were going to get left at the altar again. Yeah. Let me just tell you. I I don't blame people for wavering on this one. This was a tough one to sit through you had to have a really strong stomach to get through the the last few days. Just truthfully. I mean, I I still believed. I kept the faith thing. I mean, I'm up at four thirty. And I'm look like you guys said, I'm looking at my Twitter, and I'm like, oh, what's happening. So last two things. I don't know if you know, the the clip you just played about the walk off Jim beings walk off. Yeah. And the good fellows clip of that. It's the best where we're Liotta is in the shower. We're Henry hill is in the shower. Jimmy. It's great. It's so well done. Yeah. It is. And then the last thing is is is is that no brakes. Harper is what he is. And he's he's the talent is insane. I actually think Philadelphia is going to make him a stronger and tougher and a leader that he hadn't been in Washington. And I think that like when he gets here, and he he sees what that ballpark is. When that team is strong and good. He's going to be like holy when. Yeah. When when when when there with you. As opposed to against you. There's nothing like it. There's nothing like a Philadelphia fan base being behind you. And he's not he's going to be like, wow. Bitches is not Washington. Now, I grew. I one hundred percent agree with you a hundred percent. He's going to be blown away. And he's going to he's not going to bad mouth the DC fan base. But he's. No, no, no. Dan. Yeah, you're right. If you gave him truth serum. Trust me, man. He'll they'll realize real quick the difference. Judy. How do you have a seventeen year old? It's crazy, isn't it? I'm only twenty one. My I my son's middle. Name is Clemente. So I have the. Social Justice and baseball grew that that's that's that is cool, man. I love that. That's that's a baseball fan right there. You are a baseball fan. Daniel good stuff, man. Appreciate it. Thanks. Yeah. That's cool might say. All right. So. Thirteen years from now when this deal is up. I'll go I'll go Jack. And I'll go, Tom. What do you hope to be doing in thirteen years when this deals up? Come on, man. I have to be like super cocky about it or. I want you to shoot for the stars, man. Obviously be hosting afternoons hosting afternoons. Right thirteen years from now you want to be doing afternoons. You hear that John Mark here tax coming for you. All right. So you want to be hosting afternoons, Tom Kelly. What do you want to be doing thirteen years from now? What would I want to be doing thirteen years from now? Deal is up. Where's Tom Kelly gonna be and what's it gonna be? No, I'll I'll be hosting mornings. Two one up Jack Tommy's doing. Doing afternoons. I'll probably have a family by that point. Okay. All right, folks. Tom you'll be like forty five. That's all right. Good goal. That's good goals right there. So I think you're going to be doing my seventeen year old son will be thirty scary grandfather. I'm gonna be in my thirties, which is weird. But yeah, I could be and be my thirty. So it's crazy the way that works. Listen to him. That was such a such a radar. Crazes little way of getting a digging. Again in more than you. But yes, young whippersnapper. I know what are we doing thirteen? I'm retired. That's what I hope you are too. I hope I'm on it. And we try to say not bad. But like listen thirteen years from now, I hope I'm on an island somewhere. I. In clearwater. That's where I hope that. I get see Ravi like strong out to some spring training. Yes. On the out in left field. And I make my little move to the Tiki bar. And I do my thing. See you is as yearly fantasy camp guy. A yearly guy down there. Old-guard Dan fantasy that would work. I would do a lot better than the camera. Did let's hope so. Anyone can do a better job. That's true. That was just embarrassing. Yeah. That was tough that was tough to watch. All right. Let's be on. No one wanted to know. Exactly. Just like, I don't wanna see the film of Robert Kraft. I didn't want to see that film either. Which would you if you had to choose one craft? That's gonna Linda am. I girl. Linda in Mayfair. What's up, Linda? Hello, dear one. How are we? I'm just so happy for the Philly fans. Board. They're gonna sell some tickets baby. But I I had to call the tell you I'm I've found out by less than two New York radio we signed what was their reaction where do you hear this? Well, I love francesa. All right 'cause I lived in New York for ten years. And there's nobody more truthful and the one guy says, oh my God. Did you see that lineup? He said forget it the Mexico and finish. Four. So francesa says excuse me. What? Harper and company seeing the Mets pitcher he's pitching. Well, shut them right down. Really? He said if you think that offense wins baseball games. You don't know anything about baseball. He's besides I don't think they're that much. Hey, said the Yoni signing I liked besides Harper was real Mutel and the Mets coulda had him. They wanted him, but they wanted Syndergaard. That's who they started west and others and the Mets were not going to do that. So I just. He said, by the way, he's going there kicking and screaming don't even want to be there. And I thought oh, boy shower great big time baked and by the way, Linda Bryce Harper versus Jacob degrom. We'll take the race. Okay. And he is an ace three twenty three two home. Runs to Rb is two doubles ten hits and thirty one at bats. And he's got a five eighty one slugging percentage against them, not bad. No, it's not and I've seen their picture and get ahead around. So I mean, I it was the callers were scared to death. Okay. Yeah. But the host was not the here's what I take umbrage with you could say the Mets pitching might shut down whatever. But the kicking and screaming thing he had options. Right. Any any any could've tried? They would've accepted opt out. I'm sure that. So obviously he wasn't kicking and screaming. It's it's a ridiculous statement. No. But I'll tell you babe. And you know, what I said I didn't care whether it came here or not. But I take that back because this town, and these fans whom I love who has helped me when I was down in you know, that they disturbed that. I agree. Linda, I felt honestly I felt the same way today. The fans wanted to so badly went through this one hundred seventeen days of of just ups and downs and drama and and fake news. I'm glad they get the payoff. I really am. Yeah. You know, Honey, my stomach was hurting. Pay us coupled your stomach in my head. The dodgers are in the Phillies. I say, you know, I had to take tapped off which I hear you. I hear you by the way, if when his contract's up for you sitting down. Yeah, I'm gonna be eighty three and you will be here. I know that you'll be calling me. I love you. Bye. Linda, Linda will still be calling me at eighty three. I'm sure of it. Maybe not at this hour..

"Teams fans will pay to see winners and stuff like that. But that's another thing. That's sort of gets weird like presentation is that fans sort of assume a lot of fans do not everything, but you know, ticket prices went up because we're paying the price Harper thirty million a year or something. But in reality, those tickets are there because of supply and demand, and that's what fuels the salaries ten billion dollar industry last year. So. What three billion a decade ago? So the money's there. It's not that the tickets are being raised because of the players more the money's already there. So they need to figure out a way to sort of split it up. Now, Eric you mentioned Bryce Harper Bryce Harper. Of course, still doesn't have a deal. We're getting close to February. You know, it's it's it's unbelievable. Yeah. I could see if Bryce Harper was thirty four. And they wanted a mega contract, and you know, he'd shown some signs of injury or slowing down or whatnot teams. Of course, remember the contracts giving the Iran pool halls. Well, you know, I don't know if I want to sign that kind of deal Bryce, Harper's twenty six. Bryce Harper puts fannies in seats Bryce Harper moves merchandise. Why is it so hard for Bryce Harper to get a deal? That that's one of the main sort of sticking points is Mike. You're right. Twenty six Machado's twenty six or two of the best free agents of the last decade in terms of production. Their actual age like we talked about free agency. You're you're overpaying for older years. But you're you're you're getting like no matter the length the contract the first five years of that contract is basically like prime season guys. And that's rare in free agency that to get that. So that they're not getting the I mean, the fact, you know, there's really only three or four teams that are seem to be legitimately interested in either of these guys, and that's weird. That's where players red flag. Probably go up as a whole like what's going on here? Like, you know, we saw this lady's with collusion. Maybe the teams are smarter about it this time. I don't know if it will come to that. But I think that's where the sort of worry something, you're right. Their impact players. I know you know, you.

What you heard me, what heard me better than might use route when Bryce Harper. That Bryce Harper wants because Mike trout has been so consistent year in and year out. And we've seen what what Mike trout is able to do. My child is is you might as well put them down every single year as a top two top three for the MVP vote. And because you know what you're gonna get out of my Trump Harper's at up and down seasons. I get it, but the year he also went and won the MVP if Harper's able to go out there and have that same consistency of what Mike trout does to me, I feel that Bryce could be he could offset Mike trout as the best player in baseball. You, you know something right now, I listen. I want you to know that I'm proud of you be, you know, I'm proud of you. Yeah, you might. Somebody might think you have to look just got the big.

"My estimation a determined by market over stuffing of the ballot that they're going to vote for all their players no matter what guy gets a city a few years ago exactly that gets but other than that like bryce harper you can make an argument against bryce harper this year if that's who the fans wanna see he's one of the stars of the game he might not be having a true all star year i had no problem with him getting voted in as a started to you i agree i one hundred especially since in dc and he said he'd be in the homerun derby but not if it was like hey you didn't make the team but company in derby he wanted to at least see it all starts to the derby and with this new homerun derby format and the clock it's really exciting but i think it's that much more exciting when it's a home guy so i think it's gonna be awesome to have bryce harper in the homerun derby in the spotlight in dc i think that's gonna be really fun and and you mentioned the fable i've been critical of the past few especially when it was all kansas city players i mean outside he's escobar come on but if you look at this year they're like i think go window over machado machado belongs there anyway for example or it's albee's beats out i would take that but i think for the most part of the phase are doing a really good job almost everywhere so my hat's off up and he would tend to agree you talked about the derby and i like you light loved the edition of the clock i'm a homerun derby fan but sometimes it just got to be so much when a guy we continue at home run after all run you what literally watch him run out of gas and then losing a later round that didn't necessarily work for me so they put some time effort and thought into it and came up with a better way to do it with the clock so we're looking at a more competitive homerun derby the question is who's going to be in it other than bryce harper there's a ton of fun possibility yeah and i mean it was funny like i thought it had become unwatchable a lot of people still liked it but without the clock so i can still picture jose about these comes to mind taking like ten pitches in a row just standing there then take one cut stand there and taking like ten more pitches it just got an awful you know maybe it'll be since harper's going to be in it that would be fun but jd martinez you feel like has to be there just the way he's been since last allstar break was the runs stanton makes the team you gotta have giancarlo stanton it feels like aaron judge cynthia already did it probably wouldn't do it again you know we brought them up earlier what about bias he has as much power as anybody pound for pound and it'd be fun to see like a a smaller any type guy that doesn't seem that muscular getting up there and he has that file swing in a in a homerun derby would be kinda funny so he'd be one of my picks up there too i know it was suggested with among somewhat implanted didn't cheek on his show over on siriusxm jemma be network each euro should be involved in a home run contest even though he's not retired but he's not playing right now he's a adviser for the mariners that he can put on a show in batting practice and could probably hit a bunch home runs at home run derby you can't have a guide not playing and homerun derby kenya no i i wouldn't be a fan of that i mean if anything though people i'm so tired of this narrative that he could hit a homerun anytime he wanted if he could actually do that he'd have like eight hundred career home runs so if anything in my life but would be for him to be in it and hope that he didn't hit any just so that nonsense could come to but no.
