Fresh update on "clayton kershaw" discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"And you and Clayton Kershaw could be friends or maybe they would say like, you know, talking about how you treat your family, maybe it would be more convenient for your wife's work if you were based in Los Angeles, you know. True. That might be part of the pitch. I don't know if that would be persuasive, but it could be. You just don't know? Kid point? Yeah. People right in, if you have an idea, let's say you're executive X for team Y and your team is entertaining big free agent Z what are you going to roll out? Yeah, what's your pitch? Yeah. Other than we're going to give you tons of money. Specific. Method of persuading them that or what kind of perks could you offer? That would not just be like, well, yeah, I can just get that anywhere because I'm going to make $300 million. So whatever. I guess that's the thing. How do you perk you could offer? It's like, oh, give you a free tickets to this or that. I could probably just afford all of those things. But I guess that's a sweet one. There are differences between places. I agree with you that, you know, we trudge slowly or perhaps quickly toward this weird monoculture, which is strange at a time when we are fractured and so many places in terms of culture, but it's like, you know, where you can get lots of different kinds of good stuff. Anywhere. But there are still things that are specific and special. Like, you know, like if I were pitching someone to say like, go to Seattle to play baseball for the Seattle Mariners, like I might point to the natural beauty, which is not to say that there aren't other beautiful places, but they're differently beautiful, right? Then they're differently beautiful. So that might be one thing. And I would say to you, hey, you're a baseball player. You can live somewhere else during the off season so you can hang out here and not have sad. I mean, maybe you'll have said where you live because it might be gloomy. But you don't have to be there in February. You'll be in Arizona where it is famously not gloomy, you know? Yes, yes. Just in case I didn't make this clear enough, I think that if you are a player coming from NPV, let's say, like Shohei Ohtani, I mean, he did his tour of teams and like every year had to submit their pitch and then he met with some, that made total sense. I think if you're a tiny still, it's not totally clear why he picked the angels, but I think they were as surprised as anyone that he picked them, but he had a lot riding at that decision just for him, money was not that much of an object because there just wasn't that much disparity. There was some just based on like what your international bonus pool was or whatever, but it wasn't that huge a difference. And so other factors were more important for him. And for him, wanting to pursue his two way career, that was a big overriding impulse and then just like, you know, maybe wanting to be close to Japan and being on the West Coast and wanting to be or not be in the DH league or the pitcher hitting the league or just like all the questions about his role and how he would be used and how he would train and various sponsorship opportunities in media opportunities which didn't seem to be that huge a deal to him, but for him and for even saying go or anyone else who's coming over like I think just the acclamation to a different culture and a different country and all of that. There's a lot more writing on whether you go to this team or that team or the city or that city. So totally get it in those cases. It's more like just a barrow ender. He's been around. He's seen all the cities. He's seeing all the teams. Every city. Spent every city. All right, well, I guess we can end with the past blast and at press time or podcast time or whatever this is. I do not yet have Jacob reinke's contribution to the past west, but I have won that I've been sitting on for a while that was submitted by a listener Dan months ago in advance of the 1935 pass blast. And I will read it here. This was not an MLB situation, but kind of a weird and interesting one nonetheless. So read this from an AP report published December 23rd, 1935, and the heading is here's a rare one. And it says another baseball happening was described as follows by the sports editor of the Albuquerque journal, in a Sunday game between two small town teams in southern New Mexico, the bases were full. The batter rolled to the pitcher, I assume that means like hit a tapper back to the pitcher who fielded the ball and tossed to the plate for a forced out. The batter on deck stepped into the batter's box and hammered the throw over the fence. 5 runs crossed the plate. Officials went into a huddle, emerging some minutes later with this decision. Runner from third out, batter, the home run hitter out, result a near riot in the stands. I don't know what the aftermath of this was, but just to recap the situation. Bases loaded, the batter taps back to the pitcher, pitcher fields the ball, throws to the plate for a force out, and yet the batter on deck, the on deck hitter, who's just a bystander here or should have been steps into the batter's box and hits that throw, the throw from the pitcher to the catcher at home plate over the fence. And 5 runs across the plate. It says, I assume that is the bases were loaded, so that's three, and then the batter who tapped back to the pitcher. He ran around the bases, and then the on decade who hit the ball also ran around the bases. So 5 runs scored, or at least 5 runners crossed the plate. And then the officials had to huddle to decide what to do in this strange situation. And so they decided that the runner from third was out, the batter, the home run hitter, who was not actually the better, but the odd decade also out and apparently the fans were not pleased. I guess that the home team must have been the one that tried this tactic and so the fans were upset. I don't know what the aftermath with the fallout from this was. But that's a weird one. I don't know how I would rule on that, exactly. And I don't know what was in the on deck hitters head as he stepped toward the throw home for a force out and hit the ball over the fence. But that's kind of a classic illustration of the old chestnut about how you see something new every time you go to a ball game. That would be new for me. Yeah, me too. Wow. I also learned in the course of reading about that weird one that Dizzy Dean, the famous Cardinals pitcher in October 1935. This is from a story in the Dayton Herald October 28th, 1935, and it says win and loss rung up for Dizzy Dean and all in the same exhibition ball game. This is Los Angeles, October

"Clayton Kershaw said to be close to a new one year deal. John Stella Bloomberg sports, Amy. All right, thank you, John. It is 6 38 on Wall Street. Time to take a look at stocks and some of the names that are moving in the pre market for that we are joined by Bloomberg radio and TV markets correspondent creedy Gupta, pretty good morning. Good morning, Amy. You know, when you look at the green on the screen in futures right now, up about 6 tenths of 1%, there's a lot that's folding into it. Some of this is a little bit of kind of excitement coming from the CPI report that is expected to really show the inflation has peaked. That's really from yesterday, some of that sentiment seeping through, but a good chunk of today's gains are coming from this idea of China, perhaps easing COVID restrictions even further. And that's really showing up in the individual movers when you look at the biggest moving stocks right now in the pre market. And a lot of them are China exposed. Take a look at this Las Vegas Sands LVS is your ticker. Cheers are up almost 5% in the pre market. Remember, they have a major casino and operating base in Hong Kong and Macau as well. So you do see the casino names become kind of this proxy to some extent for some of the gains that you are seeing in China and some of the changes there as well. And of course, we always like to look at the Chinese ADRs as well as kind of a proxy for that. Alibaba can be our poster child, BA, BA, is your ticker. Those shares up 4% alongside some of the other Chinese ADRs, but another way to look at this Amy is also through the commodity space. Remember, you have oil up as well on the idea that perhaps China is actually going to perhaps rejoin the global economy in a way that it hasn't really been able to for the last two years or at least take steps towards that. That's going to create a little bit of pep in your step. If you are a bull on oil, there's also if you're a bull on copper and for that, you are seeing copper actually a bit higher as well. And as a result, the copper minor Freeport Macron FCX also higher on the day about 3.7% so Las Vegas Sam's Freeport macaron boat two of the biggest movers this morning once again really coming off of that China sentiment, but Amy, it's not all macro, I promise some of it is actually based on the individual fundamentals. And for that, I want to look at what's actually moving to the downside and that is Intel and I really have to talk about the fact that it is a very broad rally. I'm looking at our really great most functioning on the Bloomberg terminal and you're only seeing 13 stocks down the rest are higher in the pre market, but the poster child for the one that's lower is Intel I NTC shares it down about 2%. This comes after AMD looking to really diverse by some of their server sales and Intel and AMD have kind of a neck and neck in this race for market share Intel right now losing out on that because AMD is making some progress on the server front. All right, Bloomberg radio and TV markets correspondent credi Gupta thank you so much for that insight. We appreciate it this morning. Looking at stocks as a whole ahead of the open, well, creedy just was mentioning it futures are higher S&P futures up 22 points now to how futures up 171 points. NASDAQ futures up 84 points of the bond, of course, the bond market, of course, is closed for Veterans Day. Dax in Germany, up 6 tenths of a percent cac in Paris at four tenths of a percent FTSE in London down three tenths of

"clayton kershaw" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"I'm welcome to episode 1885 and effectively while the baseball podcast from fan grafts presented by our Patreon supporters. I am Ben Lindbergh of the ringer joined by Meg rally of fan craft. Hello, Meg. Hello. What's this you say about Clayton Kershaw and a back problem? What is happening here? Well, Ben. We are recording at two 35 p.m. Pacific 5 35 p.m. Eastern Time on Thursday. August 4th. I'm saying that as much to anchor our discussion right now as I am to anchor myself because I will tell you. Pretty tired from the deadline still, but I am given to understand that Clayton Kershaw left his start against the Giants after throwing a couple of warmup pitches. I believe in the 5th inning. And the Giants broadcast caught him saying, it's my back. So that seems unsurprising that at all. It's not the best that we're prisoners to our bones, and all of the gooey stuff around them, that keeps them in a meat sack. Yeah, you know, listeners to our special bonus Patreon pads will have heard that I'm anti warming up. So that's where he is. He warmed up. Wait a minute. No, I'm not gonna let you. Brad, your anti warming up propaganda. I'm telling you, there's a scientific basis, not for baseball players, though. I do think probably professional athletes can warm up. I think they should warm up their arms if they are major league pitchers. Yeah. Acceptable in that case. I'm talking about weekend warriors like us if we could even describe ourselves that way. But I don't like backs, specs are bad. Yeah. We need them, I guess they're good, maybe they're better than the alternative, but they seem to malfunction a lot. It doesn't seem like they're fully evolved. Right. You can kind of tell that we did not used to walk upright. I mean, you and I did, I guess we didn't at some point. But our ancestors. Yeah, for a while, we were babies, and we were like on a rolling around and floppy, like a big fish exactly. But our predecessors, the evolutionary tree. They had to warm up to standing upright and it seems like we haven't quite gotten the hang of it yet. We still have some issues. We still have some evolving to do with the backs potentially. That's one reason why I was worried about Mike Trout's back injury without really knowing anything about that specific diagnosis, which I'm sure is different from Clayton Kershaw's, but it just seems like in general, backs are problematic. They're problematic for civilians, right? I have not been cursed with bad back problems to this point in my life, but people who are, they can wrench those things, do nothing. Just bend it over, stand it up, right? And when you're a professional athlete, you can not avoid making those movements the way that you can, if you're a writer or a podcaster, so that's a problem because you're inevitably going to be wrenching those things and twisting and turning. And so if there's some sort of structural instability there, it's just hard not to aggravate that. So they're just so many players in the past to have their power chapter just had some kind of chronic condition, like not even necessarily a David Wright sort of situation, but Don Mattingly sort of situation maybe where it's just you're a different player, right? And Kershaw, fortunately, when he's healthy, he's still really good. So that's good at least. It seems like he's good or bad for a back issue or two every year at this point. Yeah, I mean, I don't think that I have like actual back problems like I don't have like a thing that has been diagnosed. I'm just 36, you know? And so sometimes I'll be like, oh, like swift for the floor. And then the next day my back is like, how dare you? Was it worth it? Meg to have a temporarily clean floor in a place that is coated with dust at all times. Was that worth it for you? And I'll go, no. What did you do a warmup before you swift? No, this is the problem, Ben. I did not stretch. You know, I'm just like, it also just makes you feel like, oh, relaxed into your body to stretch. You just feel pleasantly squishy, you know? Yeah, if we didn't have backs, we'd be like those fish that eat the bottom of the ocean. They don't eat the actual they don't hurt their backs. No, but see Ben. They're fish. Maybe it's better to be an invertebrate than to have a costovertebral. For temporal vertebral function. I'm gonna figure out a way to not say his injury for the rest of his career, which I hope will be long, yeah. I'm gonna be like, I don't know. It's a balky back. You know, maybe we should describe more things that way, so he's gotta walk you back, you know? Yeah, but not in the pitching box since. Also problematic. But hopefully Clayton Kershaw will be okay. And people will just have to sign up for Patreon if they want my full philosophy on warming up and stretching or not. So it has been a couple days from the deadline and it sounds like you are not fully recovered. Did enjoy some of the deadline wrap up pieces at van grass because your coverage was not complete when the deadline was passed there were many more pieces to come. Yeah. I always enjoyed though when dense a bursky uses zips and projection system. I was having a conversation with my colleague Zach krim

"That was great. According to a story in MLB dot com Blake's grandfather, Graham died of brain cancer more than 7 years ago, so I guess he was three. Might not remember much about his grandpa, but he knows this story wow. Before he passed away, Graham his grandfather made a list with his two grandchildren detailing everything they were going to do once he beat cancer for a 5th time, including visiting the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, meeting Vin Scully among other things. Graham passed away never got a chance to experience those moments because on the list was meeting Clayton Kershaw and that's why Blake said I'm meeting him for you. It's dusty in here, folks. I don't know where it is, how it is by you, but I'm assuming it is the same way God. I love Clayton Kershaw and just when I text you guys yesterday about this and I asked you had you seen it. I fully man. I was sitting on the couch caught up in my emotions. I mean, people that know me know my grandpa was my very best friend and as many African American men of his age, he was a Dodgers fan. So I grew up my entire childhood was spent watching Dodger baseball with him, reading him the box scores that I got to know all the players and he and I, he'd explain to me what all the categories meant and I can remember the first time I made it to Dodger Stadium. I called him. I was on the third base side and I tried to describe to him what I was watching and so when I saw this kid talk about grandfather's stories get me. So like I said, I won't lie. I just watched this yesterday and I had tears in my eyes just kind of thinking of my own grandpa, our relationship with the Dodgers and to see this kid get to do that. Man, life is, I mean, for as many bad things as we talk about just the goodness in human beings sometimes. Exactly. And for sure, you could see the light from him. And I just loved the last part. You got a parent here. I take back all the bad things. Oh man, Clayton Kershaw, man. Guys, that really did, like I said, me and my grandfather and that kid, that just that got me, yesterday.

"clayton kershaw" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"Now it's been a busy week in the MLB culture wars. I am reeling from some of the discourse and we're gonna contribute to that discourse today, I think. But we had back to back days of just trailblazing groundbreaking baseball debates baseball is dying, baseball is over. Maybe some of those debates were a bit blown out of proportion, but I think it was kind of a fascinating week first with the Giants really sort of settling new territory when it comes to unwritten rules and enthusiastically breaking them. And then on Wednesday, the day after that whole kerfuffle, we got Dave Roberts pulling Clayton Kershaw from a perfect game after 7 earnings, which was a kind of controversial decision. Wouldn't you say? I would classify it as kind of controversial. I guess. I guess it's kind of controversial. I mean, look, I understand that people wanted to see Clayton Kershaw tried to throw a perfect game. I too wanted to see Clayton Kershaw tried to throw a perfect game, but I think a couple of things about this. The first is Clayton Kershaw seemed fine with not trying to throw a perfect game to completion. Like I'm sure he wanted to, but as he said in his remarks after the game, like, you know, he wasn't ready. He wasn't stretched out to try to do that. This is a guy who missed big chunks of last year with injury and one whose late season injury meant that he was not able to pitch in the postseason and who is not 20 anymore and who is trying to return the championship trophy to Los Angeles. And so, you know, like I think that you have to think about what a guy's going to be able to do in October, and that's what the Dodgers want, and that seems to be what Clayton Kershaw wants. I also suspect that if Clayton Kershaw Clayton Kershaw future Hall of Famer, Dodgers legend, if Clayton Kershaw had said to Dave Roberts and I don't know if Clayton Kershaw swears. So I'm going to do Meg interpreting Clayton Kershaw. I'm very sorry if you find this offensive or if this isn't the way that you would speak to Dave Roberts or what have you, but I think that if Clayton Kershaw had walked into that dugout and said, Dave, I'm going back out there that he would have gone back out there. Like it's Clayton. Right? If he had wanted to press the point, I suspect that the franchise legend Clayton Kershaw could have done it, but instead he was like, yeah, I'm content with my perfect 80 pitches. I mean, he said after the fact that he wasn't able to go a hundred that he couldn't have even gone 90. So I think it's, you know, we should remember that like real people are involved in these decisions and while we might want to see things like if they tell us it's okay, it's probably fine. So this one seems fine. I thought you were going to talk about whether a foul tip is a whip. That was the other one that tried to take the Internet by storm. I'm not going to wait into that territory. Too controversial for this part. That's the third rail. We may have discussed that on this podcast previously. Almost certain that we have. I think so, yes, and I won't wait into those waters. Again, but okay, I have a lot of thoughts. Tell me. So I have some other banter, but I'll save it. We're just getting into this. This is the new subject here. We'll go backlog some banter, perhaps. But while we're on the topic of the day and the week. So Kershaw. I think there was a different reaction in the moment before we had all the facts, right? Before we heard from all the parties involved, there was a tremendous uproar in wailing and gnashing of teeth and condemnation of Dave Roberts. And the first thing I'll say is that almost no decision these days is just unilaterally a managerial move. So when everyone is saying Dave Roberts Dave Roberts, yes, Dave Roberts has been the author or at least the co author of many a confounding material decision in his day. But Dave Roberts has been the Dodgers manager for a long time. He was recently extended to continue to be the Dodgers manager, and just about every team now, the manager is not the field general anymore, not even the field lieutenant necessarily. The field sergeant maybe, you know, he has input certainly, but he is executing the directives often or at least it's a collaborative decision. So if Dave Roberts is the one actually executing the move pulling the pitcher, he is not doing that without any input. First of all, from Clayton Kershaw and his players and his fellow coaches, but also some guidance from the front office. So I think it's a dramatic simplification of any debate of this type to say, blame the manager or praise the manager. The manager is just a cog in the larger decision making apparatus at this point. So that's a small point I would say. The other thing is that, of course, I was disappointed to see Clayton Kershaw. We've that game. I think everyone was. If there was a large part of you saying this makes sense, it's justifiable, I get it, discretion is the better part of valor. Obviously, there is a part of you that just wants to see clean Kershaw go for the perfect game. Yeah. Of course. And I will say that while we can lament that he didn't get to go back out there for the 8th of the 9th, we could also just celebrate the fact that Clayton Kershaw pitched 7 perfect innings and looked incredible. I mean, he wasn't back to peak Clayton Kershaw. He was still throwing 90 out there, but it was working because he has that great slider, and he's able to locate it and sequence in such a way that he's now like a slider first pitcher and it's still really effective pitch, even though it's slower than it was..

"It might be a more fun way. The Mariners doing what they did last year was extremely fun, I think, and the more improbable it was, in a way, the more I enjoyed it, which I guess was partly because it's the Mariners and how can you not root for the Mariners to make the playoffs after all this time? But also I think when you can quantify how unlikely it seems to be or that they're doing something that's never been done before, that makes me enjoy it more. I mean, I don't have a stake in personal predictions. I'm not wagering on these things, and it's not like part of my professional reputation is that I'm some soothsayer who everyone trust to pick who's going to win the division or whatever. So I don't really particularly care if someone wins or doesn't win. I just kind of like the good story and sometimes the good story could be someone who's playing way over their heads. And I guess the only part of it that bothers me maybe an exaggeration even to say that it bothers me. But if we can't agree, hey, this team is, you know, doing something that is incredibly clutch and historically speaking, that is probably not super sustainable, which doesn't mean that we can't appreciate it and enjoy it and marvel at it. But just the idea that when you watch that team every day, you just fully buy in on know this team is special in a way that no other team ever has been or ever will be and when they do it, it is quote unquote real rate as opposed to just, well, it's really fun that this is happening. I wouldn't trade this roster for a roster of another team that has the same record. But a better underlying run differential or whatever, right? Yeah, I think that in fact what you just said is kind of goes to the divide. What you just described what makes a good story and how you can appreciate an unlikely team when they're a good story. And I think that there's basically two there's two tracks of baseball fandom. You know, you got your fans of a team and what they like about baseball is what drives their and what drives their interest in their energy is self interest. They have attached themselves emotionally to the success of a team. And if that team does well, then they get rewards. And so they're self interested in the outcomes. And I think that's true to that I think fantasy baseball and gambling are attempts to recreate that. You're saying that you want to be you want to, you are actively attaching yourself to the results of this game so that you'll have interest in them. And so okay, so that's one side. The self interested side. And then there's the sort of more removed critical kind of way of watching baseball where you're like, oh well, this is an institution that I am kind of interested in studying and observing. These are stories. I'm connected to the plot. I'm interested in making sense of what it all means. And finding out how things are going to change and you watch it the same way that maybe you watch other stories that you read novels or that you follow politics or that you have hobbies basically. These are hobbies where you maybe you want to master them. You want to feel sort of a sense of completion that you have really mastered this hobby. And the first one is self interested. And the second one is much more story focused and assessing it as an entity of is this producing value for the sport or for the for this story. And so when you're self interested, you just don't care if it's a good story at all. It's like whether there's great drama doesn't matter. Like you almost don't even need to watch the games. If you could extend the feeling of finding out who won over the course of three hours without even watching the game, it would probably be just a satisfying. You're watching the thing spin. And then you're finding out if you won. And then when you're in the more removed like baseball is a bigger thing since then you are constantly assessing it for weather, the story is good. And in that case, you don't even really care about the outcome necessarily you just care about the execution of the outcome. And so here on this podcast, we were always talking about it from the latter perspective. And we're measuring the truth of a thing, or we're measuring the drama of a thing, or the fun of a thing, or the legacy of the thing, or the memories of the thing, or the metaphor of the thing, or the character growth in the thing, or what it, you know, raised in us to see Clayton Kershaw in the dugout of the thing. And that's the conversation that we're having. And it's great. It reaches an audience with this shared broad interest. But then to the fan of the specific team, all that stuff is just like completely irrelevant. It just doesn't matter. It would be like telling someone who's bet a $100 on a game, what it all meant after. What the swings and wind probability meant or whatever. They don't care. They don't care if the game turns on a bolt of lightning striking the catcher catcher dead. They just want to win their $100. And so it's just it's a weird conversation to be on the other side of basically. Where, frankly, I just did not care.
"clayton kershaw" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"Yeah. And he is something like I think 72 wins away from 300. You know when I know Justin in the back of his mind, he's thinking he's going to get that. You know, I remember having a conversation with him back in like 2011 about why he loved Nolan Ryan and he said because the guy was a power pitcher all the way to the last day of his career. And I think that's Justin's mindset. He's going to be with Tommy John surgery buster. That is exactly what you are. You've been given, you know, you've been given a stronger arm that's got more bullets in it. I don't understand why there would be a question about it. And I think sale next year throws 96 to 98 again. I just think they do. Yep. And Verlander, of course, has a qualifying offer in hand from the Houston Astros one year and $18.4 million. The Dodgers did not extend a qualifying offer to Clayton Kershaw. There were a lot of people scratching heads around baseball about that decision. I think that's just purely respect from the Dodgers four Clayton Kershaw legacy player saying, look, we're not if you feel like you want to go at the end of your career and go pitch someplace else like for the Texas Rangers, then we're not going to hold you back with draft pick compensation. But I think everybody assumes that eventually Kershaw and the Dodgers will work it out if Clayton wants to continue. Yeah, a little bit. You know, I think to their credit, I'm not sure if Theo was the sort of the blueprint guy for this, but, you know, there does come a period too. Will you recognize the inability to post when you need somebody, he wasn't available at the end of the year and then the postseason. At some point, there's a reality that we've got to really revisit how we're going to approach this, treat him what we're going to offer him. Yeah, I think there's a sentimental feeling that Kershaw will end up there, but, you know, from a front office perspective, boy, you just sign Andrew heaney for a year, and you didn't offer arbitration. You didn't offer a qualifying offer to Kershaw. I don't know. To me, I'm reading into what this says about their feelings, you know, maybe different than you do about his real ability and his health and yeah, if he wants to go do that, go ahead with some other team, and if they're willing to pay you, you should take advantage of that, but I do think there's some reality here with what they think he's capable of. Very different, unfortunately, for me, then those early under situation. I don't have a great deal of faith, not in his work ethic. We know there's nobody that works harder or prepares more or may have been a better picture over the last ten years than Clayton Kershaw. I'm suspect of what's left in his tank. And I love the guy. But I think there's some of that for the Dodgers. You mentioned the Andrew hiney signing yesterday, $8.5 million and you and I both saw heney after he went to the Yankees. He was awful for them, who was dropped out of the rotation, wind up in a sort of filling a mop up role for them, and he was getting pounded doing that, which is why when that contract came down yesterday, it was like, wow, you know? The number was surprising because you're thinking after he performed so poorly that, you know, he might be one of these one year four to $5 million guys. But 8.5 million from that team already, you know, you're kind of wondering as you do with a raise or with the asteroids when they pick up a pitcher when the Dodgers pick up a player like they must see something in him that they view is correctable, very specific information kind of like when the asterisk signed Charlie Morton to a two year deal after he was awful for the Pittsburgh pirates. I guess. I mean, there's a lot of faith in your own staff.
"clayton kershaw" Discussed on What Difference Does It Make
"He will not. I will give myself total credit. I was sitting in his house watching. Every dodgers game because they see him as. We're always in november so i was always watching. We were like working september. You know hanging out. And he has a bar where he records and rights and where we write jokes and material and books and stuff like that and he has a giant tv in this bar and we watch dodgers games. And i believe. I think he caught it from me. He'll fight me on this but he's also like a genius sort of who gets obsessed with certain things when i first met him. I think his dad was pretty big baseball fan. But he's now is he knows more about baseball and has more friends in baseball and things happened. Like so clayton kershaw when he lost were when he lost came down and hung out with us for the cma's and like if you talk about the highlights of my life. I once made in the middle of the night after the. Cma's one year. I'm packing for to go back to. La and brad calls me goes you gotta come over. And it's like one in the morning. And i'm leaving at six in the morning on the morning flight. And why do i have to come over. Because clayton's gonna come over again. He been there the night before and like an a baseball turns into a little kid. I'm fucking garage. You never say it's always yes. Yes and no. And i got an uber and went out all the way to his place. We hung out. All i can tell you. Is that in the middle of the night. I found myself and i don't drink and brad really doesn't drink but i'm kinda drunk that night and i'm making a yu darvish joke laying kershaw and he laughed uproariously and i'm like i have never been happier about a landing then so you'll see me at twitter at wild about music. I tweet the same picture with clayton. And i have you played ping pong with the man. I hear he's a great ping pong. Playa went was brad. When brad played the celebrity ping pong clayton kershaw event. I was not again unlike the rhody holding the phone mallet racket. I did not. did you say mallet. Well i'm branch okay.

"The big money issues in the world of sports son Michael Barr I'm scarlet fu And I'm Mike lynch And let's continue our conversation now with MLB network lead analyst Harold Reynolds yeah it's about I got to go there It's time to talk about collective bargaining will there be less put it this way Will there be a work stoppage Well honestly I really don't know It's been difficult I think If you look at what's happened so far with transpired with trying to work agreements to get the players on the field during the pandemic It didn't go smooth that you would think You look at hockey that did it real quick Hey we're a pandemic Let's move it a couple years We'll figure it out That is not happen And so it's different We have not had a work stoppage in 20 some years in baseball and I spent four years of my 12 year major career either locked out or in three strikes So it wasn't pretty That has not been the case in the last 20 some years So the fact that there has not been a work stoppage in 20 something years it makes me feel optimistic that we're something out But I just don't know at this point in time Who's more incentivized to strike a deal The players are the owners Look our game can not afford a work stoppage But both sides seem to be bracing for one They do seem to be bracing for one no doubt Well any time you have a work stoppage it falls on the owners As far as bad publicity And I think we've got a different group of ownership than when I was playing You know I played through the guy that was like hey this is my family team my grandma passed it down to my grandpa You know now it's corporations that own it So you've got a little different incentive in a different direction I think when I was playing it was more of the players were really how you're going to make a lot of money I think the ownership group understands they're making money outside of this and I think they understand also that the players are going to help you continue to increase your revenue Before as a player I just felt like it was always about the team and not the individual Today we're promoting the individual player a lot more You hear about soda You're about to tune in You know you hear about that more so than you hear about the land of graves or the Washington Nationals And so that makes me feel like this ownership group understands marketing and understands monetizing their asset which is the players And so I think they really are willing to be partners in that sense Kurt flood has to be looking down when we talk about free agency because back in his day it was totally different He was the man that helped drive to put this to where it is today First of all with free agency for players where's that status and second of all when you talk about big names like a Max Scherzer or Clayton Kershaw where do you think Bill end up Well the revenues are so high now It's hard that's when I was going through it The minimum salary and madeley baseball is $30,000 So to tell the common man we're fighting for more money He understood that When the minimum salary now is 500,000 and the average salaries over two and a half 3 million It's hard for people to sit there and we got several players making over a 100 million and probably a handful that make over 300 million I think it's kind of hard to sell fans on We're striking because we need more money Or need more things that we need to get So that makes it very difficult of an argument And so when it comes to free agency we clearly all owe Kurt flood a debt of gratitude Just for what he went through and thought for And I'm hoping today's player understands that when you go through these certain things it's not for you It's for the next generation moving forward And so as they continue to push the envelope I would hope that they would look at and recognize they need to bring the bottom up the top is getting a lot of money already I mean you've got a minimum salary like I said a 500,000 But you've got probably a thousand players at that minimum compared to the 50 6000 players that are way above the threshold of a 100 million So I think that's where they got to go to is bring the bottom players up and share that well Up next on the show stay tuned for more of our conversation with MLB network lead analysts Harold Reynolds when we talk about analytics and baseball It wasn't like that bag in my day I just turned the baseball card over and read the stats That's it Analytics That's straight ahead on Bloomberg business of sports Michael Barr you can follow me on Twitter at big bar sports That's the low tech version analytics I'm scarlet foo and of course you can get me on Twitter at scarlet fu And my dad threw my baseball cards up because I liked him about doing my homework one day Mike let's follow me in lynchy I forgot I'm sorry I went there Don't forget to catch our podcast That's Mondays Wednesdays and Thursdays all.

They don't want to see the cardinals the way that they're playing currently so if you're the cardinals and you got one game one game in and it's winner-take-all even if it's max scherzer who do you wanna face yeah. I think you'd rather face the giants in a series because you've got a better chance of beating them be in the regular season series. What you want to avoid though is one game against sherzer. Because she's eats them up. I mean he's going. I think one run against him in two games. This season right. And that doesn't include just the annual beatdown that he puts on him at spring training. You know. i like the cardinals chances against anybody with wainwright on the and how they play behind him. But if there's one pitcher you can name today in two thousand twenty one that you wouldn't want this team to face in a one game scenario. What's max scherzer now. That might be exactly what they wind up having to do and help us. they win. fourteen games in a row then in hussein. They can't jump on max scherzer and give him a clayton. Kershaw moment have you. They can but you you'd much rather see clayton kershaw in that game. The max scherzer inca to the cardinals. So i still think you. You gotta you gotta want what would lead to the deepest run right. And i think that would be the giants in the in the ds which means that you'd have to try to take down the dodgers in game one but you know hope that that race get super close and maybe something changes where it's not on the mound. I think that's the best. That's the best possible outcome. If you're gonna try to predict it should be fun today. Cardinals.
"clayton kershaw" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"Oh kershaw okay. Four and a third okay. Four hits our. I gave up a run. Earned had five strikeouts pitches. And i thought to myself. Well maybe they had him on a pitch count and they just did not like just get him into the fourth inning. And that'll be plenty but unless somebody's gonna tell me otherwise by the way he's playing an awful team the diamondbacks benching work. That's actually the great. The best were probably the best place to put him. Right out of. The gate is against a team. That's that bad right. This is this is the time to help. Clayton kershaw rebuild his body his arm his mind etc etc. Because you're doing for kershaw what i've been saying. You should be doing for which is getting him. Ready for the postseason. That's it that's all it is getting by the way the postseason one hundred percent and that it's your shape point bellinger and i'm with you. I'm with you on both okay. One hundred percent on board because the nothing else matters for his dodgers team whether they finished second or whatever. Yeah i get you would prefer to win the division but who cares just. This team is built to win in the postseason. Are the giants built win in the postseason. I don't know do you know. I don't know as a matter of fact i didn't know that the giants we're going to be where they are right now right. I mean i had no idea at the beginning of the season that we'd be talking about the giants and the dodgers correct. Every major league baseball expert told me it's going to be dodgers and padres and some people even predicted that the dodgers would be the greatest team in the history of baseball. I don't remember what said that. But i'm sure somebody did all i can tell you who said it. Who wasn't it's the same guy that said on sunday. Fire clay helton. It's the same guy said the signing of trevor. Bauer was the most embarrassing moment in dodger. Then i mean that seems more accurate. Yes yeah so. It was plaski. Plaski wrote at the beginning of the season that this will be the greatest baseball team in the history of baseball. Not the greatest team in the history of the dodgers. Right greatest team in the history of baseball in the data point was they will win more games than anybody's ever wanted in a regular season in one hundred sixty two games that has not come to for wishing doesn't mean the dodgers aren't having a monster season they are having a monster season. It just happens to be the team. There's also having imposters had no idea. The giants came from out of nowhere. This is bruce bocce giants at one three world series over the course of five years so just from group. Yeah yeah. I mean they've got. The dodgers have won ninety two games. They want sixty three percent of their games. Like that's a really impressive. Win percentage in. George george it but it's more impressive. If you really think about kershaw has been out for all. This bowers been embarrassment. Hooky missed all this time. Zieger missed belen. Just may got hurt early in the season. The injuries are usually an excuse when you don't win. it's dodger. Team has not let injuries been an excuse and they still the best run differential in the sport that i did not know whether you go. I just told you thank you. You're welcome in coming up next. I wanna get into something carmelo. Anthony said today about the lakers. And you're gonna wanna hear this. I feel like it's gonna make you feel good about mellow this particular squad.

"Cy Young Award winner. Clayton Crankshaft show and maybe No. It's Clayton Kershaw. Could this be the Trump White House? 83333 Gorka, The answer is probably half the team wouldn't show up, so I guess it's less controversial. Would be angrier if they were the Trump White House in half of the team didn't show. But there they are standing with Kamala Harris and job I'm the Dodgers visiting president by the first team to do so after the pandemic a 3333 Gorgo. Why in the world is only 69% of this country say that it's the best country to reside in John in Atlanta online, too. You're on America first. Jennifer Horn in for SEB, Gorka. Hi, John. Hey, How are you doing? Just great. Thank you. Happy Fourth of July. What do you think? The reason is that that number seems it seems low, doesn't it? Yes, it does. And I'd like to offer two reasons from humble perspective. One is I think the media is full of negative news all the time. And so for people who are only getting their news on the CNN or MSNBC, they're only seeing negative news reports and how bad everything is because that basically is part of the Democrat narrative. The second reason I'd like to offer is one that you haven't discussed yet. And that is this. Today's young people and particularly age group that you mentioned the demographic profile of those reporting negatively are basically they've never served their country. They've never. They've never had the draft. They've never been in the Peace Corps. They don't really understand what the older generation does about how we're all connected and how what we ought to be doing is serving our fellow man. They've been so self absorbed and into their own perspective, that they really haven't had a chance to develop and mature into the to the more that the broader view of how we are all interconnected. You know what I think That is a really great point.

"Good morning can. How are you? Hello to all my friends and Cleveland again. Thank you very much. You're welcome. You're talking about getting policed at the end of last hour. Jeez. We know that Jimenez is gonna be decent. Any. Yeah, I like him. Yeah, He's a good player. I like him. But again. I mean, we're talking about Princess Colin, door, top and player in baseball. Okay, Now, this is gonna You gonna make me say some? I don't believe is a fan. Okay? I believe it has a fit. Well, okay. I believe it is a fan, but I don't believe it is an analyst. People always call up and talk about people's postseason struggles. I don't think that matters at all The baseball teams. Like. I don't think Bryce Harper's postseason struggles or anything like that on there that mattered to the Philadelphia Phillies, or or anything about Clayton Kershaw or or David Price or anybody. I don't think that anybody's postseason struggles matter. I think they just get the player and I will be okay for us. We've seen a couple scenarios. Clayton Kershaw certainly clean it up in the postseason. Other guys have So because I think that that's an overrated thing. Francisco Lindor has struggled mightily in the postseason there, buddy. I'll tell you that. That that is one thing you got to pay attention to, but hell probably figure it out. And I'm sure everything will be fine. All right now, and we also got a pretty solid picture in that deal as well. I like that. I'll tell you what, you got a great pitcher and a great guy. I've I've actually worked events with him. We both. Well, hope maybe he'll still representing there. I'm not sure. But we both represented window company here in Cleveland and I've got I've got to do a two events with him before and he fantastic. He is great with kids. Hey, is a great all around guy. Everything that's overcoming his life. There's Yeah, there are guys who I'll tell you this there, guys who like Oh, there they look like good guys. Then you know, behind the scenes there, not Not too great Carlos Carrasco from everything I could gather is is a prince of a guy from beginning to end, So I hope that he does. I hope he does. Well, you know, Help. Francisco Lindor does well free. I have. No, I have no animosity against the Mets always kind of like the Mets. S o. I hope they do well for you. And I hope that these players that come to the Indians or whatever they're about to be called here in the near future. I hope that they do well, but it does socket. What? What? I was upset about yesterday and I don't mean the languish on all this because I know we got other things to do. But what I was upset about is I still thought that I kind of had a back and forth with an Indian's writer about this. Was. I thought that the Indians could do this in a different time. I think the Indians and a lot of ways were obsessed with the Browns. In timing. I think the Indians have been mad at the Browns before because there's there's people who are mad at the bronze. We're fans, but they continue to be bronze fans with the Indians have been a really good franchise. And the Indians have been a successful franchise and well run franchise, and I believe all that will still be true. I give them their credit. But I also believe in You had time he could have done this earlier. You couldn't on this later. I think that I really do think Steve Cohen will be willing to make that deal whenever because I think he wanted to make a splash. And so for the Indians to make this move now. I was doing the mornings yesterday and Nobody want to talk about that deal. They all wanted to get ready for the Steelers and Browns. Literally. People were calling and going. Hey, I like this sucks. Let's talk about something. Let's let's get excited about some here. Let's get excited about the bronze. Okay, You gotta go right on it. I guess I was giving people the option. I was giving him the option Piano. And I think that that that provides That makes people really not care about their team. Because if you're calling and screaming about an owner of a baseball team or a franchise, Alicia care, and I think they really are they just beating down so much with all the trade that they've made over the because because if you're a baseball fan, remember your baseball fan you love the sport. But if you're not in certain areas, how can you love your team? How can you really fully love your team? And how do I say how do I explain the market to my sons? Now? That's a terrible card to play. But I seriously it's It's a tough conversation to have Because there's certain generational players and I know you're not gonna be able to hold on to them. I know it. So how do I worked that out Like the first Albert Belle was my first Love is a fan, Albert Belle and I love even when he chased down the kids on Halloween. I love Yank my house. I'm coming after you, too. Okay, I I loved Albert Belle as a kid and Albert Belle left for a 60 something million dollar contract with the Chicago White Sox and Go, Dad. Why do you leave it, son? It's it's It's just different in professional baseball. That's what it is, and it's just gotten worse since then. So Major League baseball. I think he's playing people in the world who loved baseball. I think there's a lot of people in the world who have problems with professional baseball, but That their systems their system.
