"And as mark mentioned there is a third baseman on the cleveland guardians who the jays reportedly tried to trade for this past summer The report came out last night. I don't know if you guys saw that it was him and robbie grossman. I would not be surprised. And i'm not gonna guarantee anything that they're they try again this offseason. They need a third baseman. They need a regular permanent third baseman cabin. Bijou was not comfortable at third base santiago. Espinel obviously is good. But you need more. And if you're gonna lose marcus assuming because that's a high possibility you need to try and get somebody to come in. So that is what i'm saying that is in the event that marcus simeon is. Not back i do think they kind of circle around and try and do it again. With jose. Ramirez there is a connection. We know the cleveland connection by either way going back to the prediction. You come a little. Bit off the rails. They're so back to the prediction for santiago manal. Yes it was a great season for him. And i think he blew away a lot of expectations and kind of you know outperformed what we all thought and pretty much going back to june. I remember we had a topic about this and we it was. I think it was actually a headline of one of the episodes was to santiago espinel deserve more playing time and we all kind of understood that if joe panic was still here he was not going to get that opportunity so the jays make trade they got obviously we know the trade to get dickerson and they get number for joe panic. That opened up a that opened up a complete path. For santiago's aspen on the play. Every day alongside injury to kevin bijou so for somebody who took advantage of all the playing time and all the opportunities he had because he did amazing numbers throw ninety two games i know he had some time where he missed because of his injury. But you know three. Eleven average through seventy six on base percentage of four zero. Five slugging percentage. That's a pretty decent opium. That's an almost at eight hundred and a war of two point two. He did really well. He can field and that somebody who i think's gonna have it good role in this team next year regardless like i was mentioning if he's gonna be platoon having bg of somewhere. Because kevin bijou. I'm not ready to write off yet. I don't know if he's back next year. Not if he's in a potential you can't obviously guarantee anything but if he's on the roster next year i am not ready to write him off and i do think he has a. He's a prime candidate for a bounceback season extra. I think that's all we're hoping for and for mcguire. Who had an interesting twenty twenty on and off the field. A lot of us forgot about him this year and rightfully so because of the two thousand twenty. He had base off his numbers. No i don't really regret not predicting him that way or kind of involving him in the the whole starting catcher thing because obviously all a hundred kirk and danny janssen's seemed like an ideal pairing. That's how it started so we were right about how it started. Obviously we did not expect the kirk injury to happen where he went on the sixth day. I was glued. Danny jansen got hurt twice with the same hamstring..

"So i guess we kind of wrap up the show for today. I just would love to understand more about. Where do you believe ignite post is headed in. Here we are in q.

If i world shop by ecosystem important to disrupt the tech stack so to speak as being easy. Add on. Thanks to the cleveland connection but just would love to understand kind of where the product is headed. Roadmap what's the future going to look like. Yeah so super excited. So there's a couple of things that are coming in the pipeline. That i think are are noteworthy number one is. We're putting a lot of effort into partnering with really a tight group of marketing agencies that are really certified ignite post partners and whenever we onboard customers. This is one of the biggest things that we get asked is. Okay like tell me a little bit about some of the best practices. How should i integrate. This into what i already have. And so what. I would like to say is. We're really the paintbrush but you're the artist. So we we try to partner with this kind of trusted close knit group of agencies so that when we get these kinds of questions. We can really leverage them to their fullest extent. Save how these are the agency partners that do this day in day out. They can really help you with your flow. You know obviously work with their clients a lot but that's one of the biggest needs that we kind of identified from.

"Club's systematically started getting shut down a little bit thanks to my father and one you know you saw a decline in club activity on the. I should say on the radar club activity. Now it's more under the radar. Now it's more clubs trying to do good things because they know that there's a lot more attention on them now if that makes sense after you know the early eighties so are there a lot of groups out there. A lot of clubs. Oh yes and i a lot more than there were previously. Do you have a general opinion motorcycle clubs today versus how they were or or maybe not even comparing just where the state of motorcycle clubs are. Today i do. There's certain ones that are. It's hard for me to see. I guess they are today versus where they were. Once upon a time. I saw the real the real list of the real and that's how i grew up in now. I see these guys with white tennis shoes and flat bills and their dina lows and like i said i the sons of anarchy culture. So it's it's more of a fad now but you can still see those real bikers As far as my involvement. I don't really want to be involved with that. My opinions changed over the past six months. I guess you would say on where my stances you'd look at me and think i had. I had a nickname. Actually when i was working in cleveland at the alley cat oyster bar. They called me biker. Mom but i'm far from it actually. Do i like motorcycles. Absolutely do i want to be involved in any type of a club. Hell no. there's two. There's way too many politics and you know i'm a woman. I don't need any more drama in my life. And these clubs. A lot of them are full of drama. And i have no time. For that. Jacob taylor join us on the show you can follow her on twitter at hells little angel. An angel is a. n. g. l. So make sure you get that right if you want to follow along so again to kind of a little bit of a lot of the relative unknown podcast is centered around and you've kind of reference him a couple of different times heroes. We've been talking your dad Bush crouch who later on Through the witness protection program as he is kind of originally introduced in the show is paul dome and he was You know really quite a high ranking member of the hell's angels and that's where this cleveland connection comes in so he's a guy who was born in louisiana and i mean she's you go back and look at the train of of despair here. I mean your dad was born in some really crappy conditions with his mom and no no dad around and his upbringing and And then obviously you kinda fell four with you and what you had to deal with. But he you know ends up getting into prison Pretty early in life. And then that's also where this whole odor cycle. Fascination comes with because him and his cellmate at six. Am in the morning and five pm at night or racing to the prison window to hear this dude ride to and from back to work and just the i don't know the ballade tones of the engine really. That was the romance where they fell in love with motorcycles. Right correct that was the first page of his manuscript is if you asked me how i became a biker. This is how and it was in huntsville Him and his cellmate. We're getting up and listening to this. Became the highlight of their day. This gentleman just writing to work you know. And they looked forward to that and just listening to him. You know writing down the road and Switching gears and i mean they loved it and the first thing that he did when he got out of prison was he went and bought himself a bike and he learned how to ride and then he bought a so major bike learned. He taught his soulmate. How to ride when he got out. So that's where it all started. And he went on to hook up with some of the original members of the bandidos actually and form a club down in texas. So that's all where it started but he had a very tragic upbringing. That i never knew a lot about until we did this podcast. And some of the producers really dug into his past and brought it all to light for me so that was one wonder as a wonderful thing that happened because of all of this is how much i learned about my father that i had never known previously so he does time with the bandidos he ends up turning in his patches goes out west and i don't know if he had like appointments or he eventually runs into sonny barger who of courses You know one of the most well known probably the most well known hells angel. And he's keeping notes on everybody that's in biking at this point and he knows your dad and what he's done and says. Hey you know we want you to go out to cleveland. There's been some Things that have gone awry out there. And we want you to kinda get cleveland back to prominence and appeared. Your dad was Down for that and Away went and off. The tinley goes to realign the the hells angels charter out there correct. So he went out he had. He did have an appointment with sonny barger that was. He thought he was going to get killed that day. Long story short. I don't want to give away too much He did sunny. did ask him to go to cleveland. And help out the cleveland out charter and to start some new charters on the northeast coast there so he helped quite a few different clubs out there. Get them started. He was Wrangling prospects different things like that. Basically like a recruiter. I guess you could say but Everybody knew who he was and he was he was wild and crazy. He definitely Made a name for himself in the late sixties and early seventies so yeah he He ended up being the vice president of the cleveland charter. And yeah that's kind of where.

Whether you're a beginner or professional definitely cookery wanna add the arsenal visit pit barrel cooker dot com and tell them the barbecue central show. Sensu gang fan of podcasts. Not only the barbecue and grilling podcast but other ones as well tonight in the second hour we break format and talk about something that i knew nothing about other than when i would hear about it on. Tv shows or movies that being the protection program. Or with zach as it's called guess tonight has been in the whitsunday program for the past forty years or so and was the story behind the documentary slash podcast entitled relative unknown which dealt with their father reformer hells angel turned government informant and what her life was like being put into the woods program here to talk about that what she would like to change about the program for the folks who will have to be part of it in the future and maybe just maybe some barbecue talk. We welcome in first time or the show. Jackie taylor hey jackie hello greg how are you. I am fabulous. Jackie appreciate you joining me. And i am ultra. I don't remember the last time i was excited to have a guest on the show Barbecue or not barbecue related. So i appreciate you making time and before we get into the agenda this evening. This show is one that obviously covers barbecue and grilling so to stay on brand for at least one question whereas your level of interest in li- fire cooking or eating or any of that it's it's way up there. I'm quite a big barbecue fan. Actually i used to coincide my trips to cleveland with burn off down the flats because it was right around the time right around my grandfather's birthday which is may twenty fourth. So that was a big thing to us. So i mean this is perfect. Yeah i love girl and myself. I haven't done that much experimenting with anything more than propane. i know. that's terrible a propane grill. And i love it. I do too. I grew out a lot. That's in fact. I was supposed to have a little barbecue tonight. But i cancelled the barbecue to be on a barbecue show. That's the way to do jackie. That's where i is that good or bad. It's probably both right. I mean we always want to cook. In my case selfishly. I think it's okay. Well we'll let it pass can come tomorrow if they want for crying out so as we get going. I want to articulate a few of my goals here. I of course i want everyone to go out to get the relative unknown podcast if they haven't heard yet and start listening to it and i don't think will spoil like too much for folks that haven't heard it yet. It's an incredible story on many franz. And then second and perhaps more important. I wanna help you shine a light on the website program and show people the incredible shortcomings of how this whole thing works. Because i don't think as. I mentioned the open. Ninety nine percent of us have any idea of how this thing actually works living and breathing with folks doing it. We hear about it on tv. But we don't see even what the next day look like or weeks or months or or years. That program goes on and there was obvious that there's some major things that need to be addressed and really that's your core mission of things that you're trying to change here for that program so i hope to help in any way they can. Are there any goals that you would like to accomplish during the time this evening to yes. I just like to make people more aware. Because like you said hollywood does really glamorize the witness protection program in there's nothing glamorous about it I do have an endgame. An end game is to you. Know hopefully speak in front of congress someday congressional oversight since nineteen eighty-four with my father. So that's a big concern of mine All of the numbers. Everything is not accessible to for ya. So you know that that's a big thing to me but basically just spreading awareness letting people know my story other stories that i've been working with as well. There's a number of other children that i'm connected with and we have our own little support group. I guess you say and yeah. I'm i'm not alone in this. There's others out there that are in my shoes so just to set the scene a little bit here for the folks that are just kind of coming in or or wondering how. This interview even happens a quarterly guest of mine. Who's the barbecue editor for texas monthly. We were having a conversation one day and he said hey We were talking about podcasts. We listen to and he asked. If i had listened to relative unknown and i said no he said well you should. There's cleveland connection in it. But he didn't really give me any heads up on what the show was going to be about But i heard cleveland. Figured i'd give it a shot and of course i listened to half of the first episode and i'm hooked immediately and I listen. I've binged it for like the next day or two. Every time i was in the car. I had it on and i was through it and it was an incredible like a lot of the saddest ways possible. I think Story that you're going through. So i guess if i can ask a general question upfront. I'm like the antithesis of motorcycle guy. I'm scared motorcycles. I would like to ride one. I'm also afraid of everybody else would hit and kill me so you know i. I just was not aware of the sheer amount of motorcycle. Clubs that were a out in the one thousand nine hundred seventies and sixties and stuff. I had no idea there. Are this many motorcycle clubs that are still in existence today. Oh absolutely more. they're not. Oh yeah oh yeah. Since sons of anarchy came out. I call it the sons of anarchy culture. You see a lotta guys now. And dina lows. That's the type of a bike. Just you know industry in st glides. Everybody wanted to go out and get a bike. Everybody wanted to start their own. Mc their own club after this particular show came out because it really glorified the biker culture. Which i have no bad memories about growing up in the hell's angel clubhouse you think that that surprisingly enough you'd think that that would be terrifying as a child but it really wasn't. We had a lot of fun was very family based in the seventies. i remember a lot of barbecues. I remember just having a lot of fun with all of my uncles and my cousins it was. It was a great time. You know since the early eighties when the.

The second tuesday in the first hour of the month of tuesday. I got lost in myself there. Of course the creator of mazing ribs dot com meet had will be joining us. We will be covering the hot topics as what i like to term. As the business of barbecue traeger is made a lot of news in the last number of weeks. Weber has attempted to make some news in the last number of weeks. So there's business to be talked about there then we will take it out of the bull bear ring and we will go straight into the garden where everybody loves to live. And we'll talk about dishes that you may or may not be considering especially if you are one who fashions themselves a green thumb and keeps the garden during the winter or during the summer months and things are coming in rapidly as they do with gardens so meathead will be here to help us and guide us through the garden and to what we might wanna make with the fruits of our labor and then we will move to the second hour. We'll be joined by a first timer to the show. I think this makes what is it now. Three months in a row where we've had at least one new guest here on the show. Twenty twenty one is spawning new guest movement. The likes the show was rarely ever seen. But we have a new coming in and look this is a barbecue and grilling show. I've said it before. I say again but it's not always about barbecue and grilling so if you can't get down with what i'm going to do in the second hour that certainly your choice. You can tune out you could not listen to it on podcast. Whatever but go ahead and blame it on daniel von texas monthly embedded correspondence. I'm sorry texas monthly barbecue editor quarterly correspondent or quarterly guest. Here on the show. But blame it on daniel for the content that i'm gonna bring you in the second hour because we were talking off air number number of months ago and we were talking about podcasts. That we like. He said hey. Have you ever checked out the relative unknown podcast. And i told him no and he had mentioned that. There was a cleveland connection. So obviously that's at the hook. So i listened to the first episode and within the first number of minutes i was immediately and hook line and sinker. I think it's ten eleven twelve episodes. It's a podcast documentary. I guess so. It's not like this show whereas just ongoing but it is a life story and i will be joined by the lady that narrates it and really that the whole story revolves around there certainly major player in the game. That does not jackie but Her father is somebody who has directly affected her life. Both growing up ongoing. And we'll talk to jackie taylor first time or the show about her father and the story that she put together with cadence thirteen. And we'll talk about the width sec program. Familiar with the whitsunday program. That's witness protection. And i think ninety nine point seven eight percent of us have no idea what it actually involves other than what we see on tv and typically ntv. It's at the end of a cop program where somebody has done. The right thing in turned on somebody else in they are sent off to be protected for the rest of their life. But nobody knows what that looks like. Nobody knows what day number two or even day number one looks like in witness protection and jackie's been living it since she's eight years old nine years old so she tells all about it she can tell us all the pitfalls that are happening and what her life has been like in the troubles that she's had she's been dealt a horrible hand a right from birth with her dad and then into witness protection. What she's had to go through there so it's going to be lightning. It's gonna be tragic and a certain degree learning about jackie's life and what she's had to endure. And hopefully we can use this platform to help shine more of a light and get more knowledge out to the masses on what the witness protection folks are going through. Because it's not necessarily the snitch or the turner that sufferers. It's the families that have to go into that in our uprooted and stock were ever their stock to assume new lives. So i'm really looking forward to it. It's been in the works for a number of months now. Huge fan again. it's relative unknown. You can find it on all the podcast platforms.

Also owns cowboy brand of charcoal. Which you can find some your big bucks stores and a bunch of scuttlebutt over the internet of course is now with the sale to duraflame. Is this going to impact quality. Is this going to mean. The bbc is going to be charging a even more premium price than maybe they already are compared to some other brands. Lot of internet speculation. So we'll talk to eric and suss out what is true and what is not. We'll also get a. I reveal or i look on a gravity fed charcoal cooker in concept to masterbuilt. This one's from charge griller. And i think over the history of the show both derek and i have given our own thoughts on concepts of char griller and masterbuilt. And then were they actually come together in. Fruition leaves a little bit to be desired. So we'll see if that's more of the same or if dirk labs some great new news for us for this. I look and depending on. How time goes. We'll talk about grills and cookers that we might suggest as we get into this grilling season. Which is now quickly approaching depending on where you are in the country. That will move the second hour. It is the fourth tuesday of the month. As i had mentioned just a few minutes ago. And that of course brings a visit in the second hour the embedded correspondents. That's really one of if not the most popular recurring segment that is going on in the history of the show. Recent history of the show so very excited to have doug who was on a station but not at his house. So is on a kind of vacation. Staycationing john solberg from michigan and the latest greatest embedded correspondent rusty bonds from the great city of utah will be joining us and we're ready to get their thoughts on a number of topics. Happy to have you jump aboard as well as you see fit to one. Six to two zero zero nine six or greg. At the bbq central show dot com. Don't forget you can follow me. Socially instagram twitter tiktok and snapchat at bbq central show facebook and twitch slash bbq central. Show where you can find video feeds. You can also find one over youtube which is slash r d remedy. So first off. I want to apologize for an to the masses and specifically tumorous overson for last week's interview and the audio specifically on my end totally bummed me out for days on end. Of course. I think we all have come to know by. Ocd as it relates to sound quality and to have me coming across to me totally unacceptable. So again i apologize to marissa the fan base again you know. I hold audio to the highest standards. And last week i failed. I kept with it because it was a great interview that was going down on her side so wanted to own that i will continue to keep audio quality as the most important core value of the show now that being said this past friday morning because i was so incensed with myself after re listening back on thursday. And i'm hoping but some of you enjoyed this little that happened. The original audio was uploaded on thursday as normally as and you could hear. When i would talk i came a lot of the time. Hot over the top of be in a quick eco. it was terrible. I called it the echo monster back in the day except it was usually my guest. Who was listening to themselves. In another browser getting caught up in it forgetting to shut that window but this was completely different and again it was only on my side. So i got up friday morning after i listened to it and i said you know what i can fix this. I can make this a much more listenable interview. So i cut out a bunch of the questions that i had asked marissa that i was getting that immediate feedback echo from and i put a whole new bunch of questions and laced them in the conversation. So of course the win is you don't hear the echo and it doesn't make it unlistenable and a hurdle to get to the end and instead you get a nice clean audio segment. If you want to do a comparison you didn't hear the first run on thursday and then get the reload on friday. Go back and listen to the youtube video audio or go back and listen to the facebook where they all archive and listened to the audio there in hear the echoes. That i'm talking about and then go to the podcast. Where the through the website. Or if you downloaded on some type of a podcast platform and listen to how i cut myself. Ou- relayed the questions or related. The questions not related but re asked those questions. And i i the cats out of the bag this point if you never heard the original audio and you just caught it friday or saturday over the weekend or whatever the case may be. You probably had no idea you thought it was a bomb ass interview between host and your twenty twenty steak world champion because mercer lay down some great information but if you were struggling struggling through it on a tuesday last week as i was i can't even believe i made it through the interview. You will understand as my longest running in betty correspondent doug shining me privately through text message. Hey i'm relisting to the new audio. And i have to tell you. It's like listening to two different interviews. The second one is so much more enjoyable. And i'm getting so much more out of it. It's like the first one was a different interview completely and this one is just so much better so much more enjoyable and getting so much more out of it. Because you don't have those audio hurdles that i continue to rail about so enjoy the relayed audio. Take it from there. Listener feedback from mike. Is it leuke or loose. Or luke or loose. Say in milwaukee wisconsin. I greg first off loved the show really appreciate the production value put into it. Everything always sounds fantastic. Just wanted to let you know that you've done what my parents have always tried to do. And that is inspire me. I've been in the video. Production business for the last twenty years shooting. Television shows commercials and corporate videos. Landscape of the businesses changed significantly since then with business took a big hit so but it was time to pin it. And now i'm opening a brick and mortar store in milwaukee called barbecue.

I assume that prior to that no one knew those bodies even existed were they found They were found eventually. Once the Milwaukee you know, connection, the case is up there broke. What had happened Is there have been some missing persons reports filed on two people here. And they never found them. You know, they obviously were gone. And then they managed to find the remains here. And so they brought him back to Akron to stand trial on the charges here and then Milwaukee said, Well, you know, since the earlier crimes committed were committed there you go ahead. You know accidents from a county you can You have first shot at him, which we did. And then he was convicted here. Then he went back up to Milwaukee and Ended up being convicted there so it is and what was really Strange is, you know people have grown up with Dom er and described him as being kind of a quiet kind of withdrawn type of guy. You know this? You didn't show any tendencies of being violent or anything then, but he was just he was kind of shy and very withdrawn. And, um, so you know, that was something that those who remembered him, you know, talked about all bed absolutely bet, because that has to be one heck of a shot. Now were the parents of the victims still alive when they were discovered? Yes, they were E think one of them might have been deceased.

This guy was really good but he's obviously been finding a ton of injuries. The past like four seasons. Yeah. The funny thing is I'm Gonna I have another weird count for you.

Yes, and then he went to Cincinnati we traded Dmitri E for we traded it. Yeah. It the offer. Yeah Yup I remember that yes. How bad I remember I was a huge yeah. Huge hype train coming in ever actually worked. Earth can do that to. Look all these options are fine. They're not incredibly sexy. They're not anything that jumped out the page do I think the Blue Jays are doing their homework? Yes. Do I think ultimately any of these players are going to be part of the team? No I don't. I don't maybe Kluber because of the Cleveland connection as a gift again invited spring training. But I think he probably be able to get a little bit more than that elsewhere. Maybe. Wanted, played third base though that's the only reason I brought that. Yeah. To me, that would be a complete desperation move in a by allow obviously. But. To a five year ago. So.

"So your rotation I, mean, obviously that's a filthy rotation. My rotation doesn't top that because if you have Garrett Cole Trevor Bauer Lance Lynn is a one-two-three punch in the playoffs that's topping pretty much every team in baseball I against it away from Trevor because I don't think it's realistic part of this even though we realistic because of the because of the the the Yankees. Don't want dip their toes in in in the controversial waters of Trevor, Bauer whether you think it's controversial or not I think steinbrenner and the Yankees Pr Department and Brian Cashman does not want to deal. They do not want to answer the Trevor Bairo questions. Why is he blogging from the Locker Room? Why is he doing this? This? Don't want to do deal with that. If he signs that deal there's going to be an understanding. You do understand that right if he signs that deal with the New York Yankees whatever the dollar amount is, there will be an understanding well, I. Don't think. I. Think Trevor Bauer liked doing that stuff. So I think he won't sign with the Yankees if they tell him, you can't do that stuff. Oh, I disagree. I think he's going to get money from someone because he's a really good pitcher. So if the I don't know if the Astros were the. If. The dodgers of the CUBS WANNA pay Trevor Bauer thirty, million a year and let him blog. He's going to do that rather than take thirty, five million from the Yankees. This is going to be the second thing. That map lake does well. And that's going to be the Cleveland Connection is that why you're No I I. I think that yeah, I think it'd be the analytics approach to the Yankees and the way that they've done that they. They need to embrace guys like this who also taken this approach and I think guys who who are so serious about this approach. They have to line up with teams that that will cater to it as well and I think the Yankees are team. If you get rid of all of the off the field stuff, just look at the baseball look at the the way that they approach the game look at the way that he approaches the game and there's a very, very natural fit there actually. He wants to I think he wants the big stage. I think he wants the big stage I. think that's that's the thing that he's been missing. He's been in Cleveland and Cincinnati. He's been in freaking Ohio, he can't get out. Of Ohio, he wants to go to the biggest age in the world and that's new. He's kind of turning his own. He's creating his own stage. He is. You're right but imagine how big it will be if he's on the New York Yankees also. Yeah. Yeah I don't know I I I I would love the pitcher differ just talking about the Pitcher, Trevor Bauer, of course. But unfortunately, that's not what we're just talking about. So I I I don't know maybe I'm going to be wrong in the Yankees are GonNa go after them I kind of took the approach where. Signing, can I tell you my approach? The reason I say this because I understand it's a better. Card a risk with the personality on that side of things. The Yankees of two years to win and they have to look at that, they have to look too good pointers and if they don't win two years, they're in deep, Shit they're either going to. Sign guys like out of Arbitration and hope that they continue to play well or or or not, or whatever they're gonNA do. But they have a two year window that is their highest percentage to win and I think that. A guy like Trevor Bauer who's at the top of his game right now there's a little bit uncertain. So maybe you do get a little bit of a bargain for the pitcher itself. They have to line up against some of these other do these other teams that that are going to have to look at Tampa and what tap is doing they have to match up Tampa they gotta get better in the pitching department and you can't depend on Severino and if you don't have a number two. that's that's dependable that you know is going to be on this team a guy that Oh, by the way, can you imagine Trevor Bauer and Garrett Cole and a film room? My God he's got I. Think they're I think they're gonNA level each other out. So well that they'll be like what I squashed their beef from college it's going to be I think they could be an amazing duo. I agree with you throw. Dog Linen in there we're good. I also wrote in my notes to maximize the next two years because after two years Coles out going to be the same pitcher Aaron Judge's arbitration is going to be up. If you think John Carlos Stanton's injuries situations bad. Now, just wait till he's thirty four years old. So yes, they need to win the world series in one of these next two years preferably both of these next two years so. That's why I said screw it trade prospects for Lance Lynn. You can't just keep pulling onto prospects and that's why I also signed Michael Brantley even though he's a little bit in age because he is exactly the type of hitter this offense needs right now he has ranked in the top twelve percent in the league since two thousand, Eighteen K percentage ten, point six, percent k percentage he's a left handed hitter and he plays left field. That is like the ideal hitter to put. At the number three spot behind Aaron judge. That's what we've been talking about Jalen leadoff Aaron Judge Number two Michael Brantley number three. That would be great..

Great box, Are you I'm doing well and and a little known streak is coming to an end as a result of this game and the pandemic. That's right. Jeff Hobson wrote a great article earlier in the week. So Mike Brown did not travel for this game up in Cleveland. That is ending a streak of 824 consecutive regular and postseason games, which is just a un remarkable, you know, streak right there. So you know very sad because the pandemic to see that streak come to an end, but absolutely understandable, and I really encourage everyone to go to Bendel's dot com and and rejects article because he has a lot more information and some quotes for Mr Brown and Era's well, Marissa. This game features a lot of Ohio players as well. It certainly does box and you know, just right off the bat thinking I was nine who played college football in the Buckeye State. I mean, of course, Ohio State has a large large supplier of that, But of course you have. Kevin Huber from Cincinnati. I believe this is his 23rd Battle of Ohio that he is playing in tonight. And, of course, there's a couple of Cleveland connections to an oblique Karim Hunt, you know, played at Toledo but was also from the Cleveland area on the brown side, and so You know, it's great.

"So if you guys want to throw him out, maybe I considered the top of my dome, but he's going to be a free agent and twenty twenty four. So you have control for as long as review or a little bit longer we'll be on this team. That's a real plus when Pearson gets healthy, you have that already that's pretty good. I. Think if you're going to ask the prospects for Cleveland's pitchers, just throw everything at chamber. Okay Yeah more or you know they're down on xactly sack and he was looking pretty damn good that we've had a police. TORONTO. So there you go out. And maybe the price won't be so high and. I honestly with the Cleveland Connection, they wouldn't shock me that those conversations are taking place just because a know that farm system in I. Know It's been a few years but still allows guys they're they're Cleveland's they had something to do with. So many drafts Johnson's then true. Yeah. Now you're out wrong and you know just want to touch on the red sox again i. absolutely still think that there's GonNa be some trade of veterans off the Red Sox roster the only untouchable in my mind on the Red Sox and three guys right now Denver's. Pogue Arts and Vertigo just because they got him or David Price McKee back beyond that if you get really crazy. JD MARTINEZ ANYBODY I Heavy contract. But I can see jd Martinez being moved or Andrew Benintendi because I think they're growing very frustrated Benintendi and Benintendi still have control I. Know He's been absolute crap this year but I mean I know the outfield that we thought was going to be a point that needed addressing looking damn good right now for the Blue Jays with brick Banou Randall Grischuk and the Oscar and Lord escorial. Hell at Andrew Benintendi before it's outfielder at rotated there from time to time. So I think the red sox could be pillaged, and if you're not the only other area I would add is the bullpen. You can never have enough bullpen help and you're in the playoffs. Then I know our full of staff who knows what the rosters will be. COMPLA- off time. Looking some royals and in Kennedy would be a nice armed add at the back end of the bullpen. He's got starter stuff wasn't damn good starter for a little while and either pretty damn good reliever too. So I'm going to be looking up royals for Kennedy as well. novelist. Lists. He wasn't Anthopoulos trump. Speaking of the Royal Trump Rosenthal Zeman frigging most talked about guys in major, League baseball trades so far. So maybe everybody's overlooking Kennedy. Maybe Brennan you are right. We don't get an arm the starting rotation and is a nice way to solidify the actual rotation by freeing up a spot. For K. or whoever to come out of the bullpen and going to the rotation, and it's still have that same level of talent and they're the same Louis Ambulatory Hawkins..

C. kicking off it happens at two PM eastern with Seattle dragons take on the DC defenders and I'm super excited about this because first of all I love football right my during football season my we can operates like this I watch my son play football on Thursdays or Fridays I get home from work I tune into the ESPN high school game of the week Saturday's I'm watching all the college football then on Sundays and watching the NFL in the in February comes and you're like oh man is no more football now I have the X. fail believe me being the football junkie that I am I'm really excited to see some of the rule changes like my favorite I want to see this kick off as I understand it if I'm wrong please don't hold it against me I don't always know what I'm talking about but anyway that they will have the players pretty much lined up five yards apart from each other and no one can move until the ball is caught or if the ball lands on the ground for three seconds then everyone can move that's the safety type of thing I want to see what that looks like what are you most excited about for the XF and get a kick off rule apparently was a rule in the original XFL and then they abandon it halfway through that first season of the original XFL I guess because back then it was probably too safe for that version of the XFL you know probably made things maybe not exciting enough for that sort of X. rated version of the NFL that we got with the original XFL this XFL though and we talked about it with Greg last segment this XFL is supposed to be a more legitimate football league so now you want to add in some some of the safety and that's one of those measures that they're taking I'll be interesting to see how that works I know the NFL is obviously tried to make the kick off and punts much safer over the years and so it's interesting to see when you have a will be like this what the NFL ends up taking from that league if anything does it get any doesn't encourage any changes at the NFL level eventually as well and I think with this with the XFL some of the things that they're doing that I think are really really cool first of all you have the no extra points and I think that's going to appeal to people because they are forcing you to go through two for two right and that's what we like to see I mean it's it's exciting and you will have multiple options instead of just the two point conversion right so you can go from four one point from the two yard line you can go over two points from the five yard line or you can go for three points from the ten yard line and I think that's really really cool because you're going to get is it more exciting Blazin football but there's still a strategy to it and get a big so many words you know that ever you know somebody's gonna go for three every time right now to turn this into the NBA and analytical say that it's more valuable to go for three you know van a wood for one or two that's really that that's a really exciting thing I think things like that will help the XFL succeed this time what I think what held the bag the you know the first time they did it was they they made the XFL of parity of football and I don't think that football fans really cared for that you know they watched it as a novelty then they said you know what this really isn't for ball you know it's more like wrestling with shoulder pads and helmets and and wrestling fan like me I was fine with it but your you want to get the you know the novice fan the casual fan to watch this and I think the fact that it will be football I think that's going to help them sixty let's hear from Kevin see for ESPN XFL reporter he was on with Freddie and Fitzsimmons earlier this week and he explains how he thinks the XFL can have a good year they can get to the end of the season and they have proven their concept that there really is a more interesting and more entertaining way to play conventional football and that there really is it really is fun to go to sort of an MLS type stadium more in Dallas A. I. reconfigured baseball stadium and watch spring football at relatively low prices for families and if they can get to the end of that and their TV ratings and okay and they and they made the end of the season and they say you know what we we built we we built a foundation and now we can spend another offseason tweaking and improving and and fixing holes and and maybe they get into a second year so I think that is what they would ideally hope to do this is game day on ESPN radio I'm in a golden alongside amber Wilson and amber I look at a tweet from their Revell says the XFL before kick off has already surpassed ticket sale revenue for the entire season that the A. F. did me a out for you know crumbled before they could even make it through a season I think the fact that it's going to be easy to find on TV right that nobody wants to have to dig to try and free if you want to watch something you want to go I know that channel already you know if you don't want to have to go to your guide and try to figure out which channel it's on and you won't have that problem with this also the other thing I really like amber is that the quarterbacks first of all there are thirty two good quarterbacks in the NFL right so you go how do you have good quarterbacks in a whole nother league but at least we're familiar with these guys Cardale Jones right Ohio state guide national champion where we know him Landry Jones right we're familiar with some of these guys and then the head coach's head coach is almost like a who's who you know of college in NFL coaches I think the the relatability in just being able to have some name recognition will really help them go far yeah I think that name recognition is important but I also think it's important that they didn't go the gimmicky route which is what they did with the original XFL you know they they really want I believe to be taken seriously and not be looked at like a circus and they've gone after some of those names like the Johnny Manziel's or the Tim T. bows of the world I think people would have taken them less seriously so it's good that you recognize some of these names but that these names are into the just ticket seller type names were you know they're really just there to sell tickets are really just there for the ratings and not there for the quality of the football and so I think that'll appeal to fans it's really interesting what they're doing they have a lot of cool rules that we haven't even gotten into yet like the to forward passes rule is really really fine I mean the first pass has to be before the line of scrimmage but then that second pass you get that opportunity there with another four I think that's really fun and then the biggest thing with the XFL is I like that they are doing everything they can to make the games quicker I think that yeah well actually be somewhat competitive against some of those a long drawn out games that we get the NFL yeah and I need to pick a team I don't have a team right now I'm thinking DC defenders because Cardale Jones is from Cleveland I'm from Cleveland we usually roll together US Cleveland guys but I I have to figure out a team maybe I'll wait a week I love usually uniforms draw me you know uniforms and if you have a Cleveland connection at some point usually I I gravitate toward towards those type of situations but got to figure out why coming up next we'll be joined by one of the five new was members of the pro.
