"You do have some recent film the watch if you are a scout evaluating pitching in the high school level not much to go off of there at all number twenty four the Tampa. Bay Rays Nick Lofton shortstop out of Baylor. Lofton shortstop at Baylor Nick Lofton shortstop out of Baylor, so we're unanimous here at twenty four not agree draft for middle infielders. Lofton seems to be the Best College shortstop available depending on where Martin ends up at number two. If he's a shortstop, obviously would be him, but contact machine, not much power guy, but a type of guy that the rays love, and can totally use in their kind of moneyball scheme moving forward just great tools, really a raised guy all around number twenty five the Atlanta Braves, Casey Martin sort stop. Center fielder Tanner Burns right handed Pitcher, Auburn or Or right handed pitcher out of Miami, so it seems as if the braves will go pitching. They gave up their second round. Pick to sign will Smith and have the third smallest bonus pool out of all money so basically they're going to look for somebody who they could potentially sneak under slot in this This pick here at number twenty five, which leads you to believe that it's going to be a college level player more so on the mound are willing to sign a little bit under slot than some of the position players who may be the first or second? Third, Baseman take in, you're looking at seventy nine pitchers ahead of twenty five, so you can tend to manipulate the money a little bit more at the bottom end of the first round. Twenty six Oakland Athletics Second Baseman Mississippi State Dylan. Ohio State and Cole Wilcox Pitcher Out of Georgia. So nobody really knows what to expect out of Oakland there all across the board. They have some elite pitching prospects closer to the top, so it depends if they wanna fill those in and restock the pitching, or if they want to look to the position player side of things to counteract their strength on the mound, so we'll see with Oakland there at the tail end number twenty seven the twins. FESCUE second baseman. He seems to be floating all around there. Cameron mid lots ski right handed pitcher South Carolina and then Kate, Cavalli out of Oklahoma, so if there's a top pitching prospect, who falls at this point being that the class is very deep in college pitching Ca Valley I've seen going to the Villi the Phillies, so he's still here at twenty seven, they would jump all over that as well as the kid out of south, Carolina who's a very plus arm from the right side, just as a little bit of command problems, but seemed to be able to get those squared away. Number Twenty eight. The New York Yankees right handed pitcher out of Miami. Right handed pitcher out a duke and a catcher from Arizona, that would be interesting. Only three picks for the Yankees in this draft other second fifth rounders went to Garrett Cole based on that contract, so they could potentially look for pitching to restock the farm, so to speak obviously cold air for the foreseeable future Severino, so the top end is solid, but the depth on the mound always can be improved, or they could look to add one of the top catching prospects and the draft. The last pick in the first round number twenty nine. You have the LA dodgers because the Houston. Astros do not have a first round pick this year due to what happened just a few years ago, so a number twenty nine right handed pitcher Jerry Jones out of high school, slates coney, right handed pitcher out of Miami or right handed pitcher out of Duke, but the dodgers go and pitch. You're going help. They need assistance the mound coming up here. Some of their guys getting older. Older Clayton Kershaw, et Cetera on the bump, so look for them to go pitching here to wrap up the first round, but that concludes our first round mock draft here with the GSM. See Baseball podcast, talking to you guys about different types of directions. Your teams may go out there. Some of the tendencies, so if you guys are watching that twenty five number twenty six, you can see based on where the board is and past experiences.

Will the NCAA scrap March Madness?
"Sohn farm ESPN college basketball analyst with so many conference tournaments now not going to have fans they are the biggies they announced that the last hole Dublin the power conferences has been the SEC they have not made any decision about not allowing fans into the venue with this ACC tournament this weekend shop on when he's on S. C. sports with Cobb and co he firmly believes that tonight will be the last games we see in college basketball this year I think we saw last college baseball games played tonight I'd be shocked with given what's going on we're gonna say that professionals can not continue to play the game but we're going to allow amateurs to continue be put in this situation eight look you and I are both on the same page we love college baseball I I mean when I came back here today from Las Vegas last night where I was at the west coast conference tournament will already I thought we were celebrating the game all day long this can be fantastic the tone has shifted and as more more information is coming out right now it is really hard pressed to believe that we're gonna be putting teams on planes flying them across the country even to spectator lists arenas I continue to play basketball for teams like rockers they haven't been in the term and since nineteen ninety one this is their moment right you take it and as a person to play me instead of letterman I didn't get what that's like the fanfare the uniqueness of the entire event is special is different but then at the flip side of it the risk is the risk factor is is far outweighs the reward zone phone makes a great point here's what I'm going to disagree with them the only way that that's going to happen is if a Nov coaches push back and say I'm not fly my players on planes in the NC double a tournament it goes back to me it goes back to the decision the Ivy League made to not hold the Ivy League tournament and the blowback that they got from the pens men's coats and the pants women's coats saying horrific and hypocrisy when it comes to canceling this event this weekend the only way I believe that the NC double a term is not going to happen would be if the bill so also the world if the top is also the world adult the John Calipari's the world they say you know what we're not flying out okay because the risk is too great until I hear that I'm not buying it without big job on makes a great point but I'm still not by that that is not gonna be a March madness NC double a turnover this year I disagree it's about the coaches Freddie way above the coaches then what I know mark Emmert it's even it's even above it's it's well he's a coach okay is there any chance of light when he was in C. EE who's about him then no I mean you you're saying code to you hear coaches saying it you have to hear university presidents and conference commissioners they're the ones that make the money decisions this is a over a six billion dollar business and that the the people that imp that employee for the most part like a better term mark Emmert are the university presidents and conference commissioners if the president's tell their commissioners we're not doing this that's when it happens coaches will have minimal say I disagree again I saw that a lot of big voices in is to go to college at his university presidents that pay those coaches their money and the conference commissioners wage also employee and and oversee all of the university president's institutions is it worth the six billion dollar business Ali I I we're on the same page I don this lip in the page one step further and that is if university presidents for telling a getting advice from their coaches to them to go to conference commissioners I mean it's it's it's it's like a chain of command in the military right in the conference the coaches alike if they're they're captains did you go to generals right and then you go all the way up right and then then you have the L. prezidente and until those conference commissioners tell mark Emmert not on those in that six a billion dollar TV contract the same happened until that happens games will be played in front of an empty barns by the FCC will not allow fans to the men's basketball tournament starting tomorrow only essential personnel and friends and family of players and coach you allowed how do you screen them we're going I am legend here and I ball tests that's a great question I have no idea

"To introduce you in this story with you -ASEBALL walkup music no no no no we don't need that now okay we we might do it to you anyway just warning you okay okay I I met Logan Ice at baseball spring training that's the practice time before baseball season starts you've been with the Indian three APP drafted by the Indians in two thousand sixteen s Logan is twenty four years old he plays catcher and he's built like a catcher he square and muscular picture like a nine volt back story with legs three years ago Logan was playing college baseball he was eligible to be drafted by Major League Baseball team and if you happen to turn on the TV on the night of the draft the baseball experts really liked Logan Logan is they saved one of the best all around catchers in this draft a switch hitting that you're always a tough to find what do you think of Osu's backstop these got savvy I think he's got athleticism and agility behind the plate like this is one of the better college catchers out there on Indians ended up drafting Logan they liked him so much they paid him an eight hundred fifty thousand dollar signing bonus which is a lot of money but if things went well for Logan he could make so much money that that bonus would look like birthday card cash they're big leaguers playing Logan's position right now who make twenty million dollars per year but the way this works new players like Logan don't go straight to Cleveland's main team the one you see on national TV the one where guys are making millions no logan had to go and prove himself he got tossed in with the hundreds of other players playing on the Cleveland Indians feeder teams they're they're minor league teams Logan got sent two teams like the Mahoning Valley scrappers the Lynchburg Hill cats the Akron rubber ducks where the salary is not millions and last year in Africa what was your living situation so I was living on the couch for a little while lived in the hotel for a little while they give you a couple of nights how much you making if you can divulge her give me a range of thinking. Hey I want to say it's around sixteen hundred Aa I think is what it comes out to be something like that that's sixteen hundred dollars a month but only during the season no pay for spring training no pay for the off season so logan salary is just around eight thousand dollars a year not eighty thousand eight thousand six is but that doesn't account for living that doesn't account for shipping your car out that doesn't account for food granted they feed you a couple of meals a day Logan and to some degree all minor leaguers are kind of like living breathing lottery tickets when they pay off and make the majors they pay off huge earn millions and millions of dollars but for the vast majority of minor league players that never happens they toil away in the minor the League's making Bupkus and most do not have a giant signing bonus you see baseball is a winner-take-all career there is a very small chance of making huge amounts of money but more importantly there is a huge chance of making almost no money and as far as logan ice knew those really the only two options but one day a couple of years ago he was at the batting cages practicing and he got this message on Lincoln Lincoln in as like some of those recruiters and stuff that you automated message like yeah like that long do you remember what it said though I could maybe pull it up but see what I got here so he said Hey Logan it's been a minute it's also a small world because I was in the message was from an old baseball friend someone he hadn't seen in a while so there was some small commiserating about a particular minor league assignment Logan and gotten sucks that you got stuck in Mahoning valley last year which that he's one hundred percent right anyways I wanted to reach out because Logan's old friend explained that he was working for this new company that had an idea for how players might be able to deal with this super uncertain take all salary situation his friends message said that this company will quote help baseball players financially by pooling risk and invest listing in each other so logan's reading this and he's thinking this sounds fishy yeah no I I was the first thing I tell them saying hello and welcome to planet money I'm Kenny Malone and I'm Tom Goldman Tom Goldman covers sports for NPR. I should you do and what if this pooling risk thing what if it is a thing what is a completely new way to look at not just baseball but any winter GEICO career today on the show an economic idea that could change the way baseball players and the rest of US think about how we get paid support for NPR comes from Newman's own foundation working to nourish the common good by donating all profits from Newman zone food products to charitable organizations that seek to make the world a better place more information is available at Newman's own foundation dot org should I call you Zach or should I call you Cowabunga or one zero it's much better you wrote on read it that the planet money newsletter is like meaning a noir detective in the parking garage for evidence exchange and incriminating photos can you confirm what's incriminating about the newsletter found some deep dark secret that once did you know how people sign up pure orgy slash planet my newsletter you nailed it all right the company that was sending in messages to try and get in touch with Logan ice is called Pando P. A. N. D. O. and here's a version of the pitch Pando was making to Logan let's actually you're a first round let's make the numbers bigger and more exciting your first round pick as a first round pick you have expected future MLB earnings of forty five million ars grave I'm in I think everyone's excited about the happy about that this is Charlie Olson he's Pandora's co-founder the problem is your odds are like a coin flip you're you're you're outcome is going to be some version of a coin fifty percent of the time you're gonNA average ninety million dollars amazing fifty percent of the time you'll make less than one not amazing not amazing Charlie's point is that even if you're one of the most promising players in the world sure there is a chance you will become one of the richest people in the country there is also a chance your future baseball earnings will be almost nothing you might get injured you might hit up streak of bad luck you might just not be as good as everybody thinks so the companies pitch to players like Logan Ice is this wouldn't it be nice if you and some of your fellow baseball players could somehow share the risk of this brew title winner-take-all career that you've chosen this idea is called an income pool and it's pretty simple like logan just get together with a handful of other players in his shoes so still stuck in the minors still making up kiss and then Logan and these players would make a deal if one of US makes it to the majors and exit big then that person will kick back part of his big money to the rest of us in the pool where baseball can be zero sum when your best friend gets called up and you didn't now of a sudden when your best friend gets called up a little bit of you did panda thinks this income pool idea would work for all kinds of else but the company is just a few years old and starting out with baseball and we spent a ton of time asking Charlie Olson questions about how this would actually work for example is there a level of baseball player that is too low to join pool no there's there's nothing that's too low so what about right now Kenny Malone in studio eligible to be a client of Panos Okay so yes Kenny you have to be in the minor leagues at least but okay so let's just say you and I are interleague irs yes here's how this would work and and we need hundreds of people for our pool it could be as small as just you and me making a deal yeah so then then Tom and I make this agreement and we need to set up the terms of our pool and we could we could set whatever terms we want but there there's a kind of standard contract that baseball players use and to explain it I was GONNA make the big leagues and we're in this pool together here's how this would play out Tom will not have to pay anything until he is earned one point six million dollars playing in the major leagues and once I reached that one point six million level all kick ten percent of the money I make after that back to the pool Pando is gonNA take a ten percent cut of our pool so that's one percent of Tom's additional money essentially that's their business model but but theoretically this is great wait for me like I'm stuck in the minor leagues with my Crappy Minor League salary and it is now subsidized by Tom's giant big league contract and maybe Tom Mix thirty million dollars a year suddenly a millionaire even though I'm in the minor leagues and the contract runs until my career is over or until I paid twenty million dollars into our pool so that's a version of the income pool plan pitched over the phone to our real minor leaguer logan ice shoot now
Can an app make the call on baseball umpires?
"It it's like money ble for Umpires from American public media this is marketplace tack demystifying the Digital Economy. I'm gotten wrong I asked Williams what's the idea behind turning the spotlight on the Yom's umpires on average make fourteen bad calls a game so that's make those instances less frequent over the summer robot umpires helped officiate minor league game the goal is not only to improve accuracy the calls but despite on behind home plate I think there's a great opportunity here as well just for fans to learn more about how it is to be an umpire the profession itself and Technology that tells you where the strike zone is and shows you the accuracy rate but yet behind home plate these umpires have to do it the old fashioned way just by human judgement and they WANNA make it free right well baseball is a game of nights and nine innings nine people in the field and I thought ninety nine cents was roughly one point six errors per inning that can dramatically impact game so it's really interesting to say will what areas are they weakest in market inefficiencies and squeeze every last bit of productivity out of their players but another issue is when an umpire gets a call wrong and Major League Baseball is trying years and I'm sure by fans that the Jacksons are occurring in part because of disputes of calls behind home plate so there is a need to improve what's going on all that can be used by major league baseball could be used by themselves really the study they're blind spots areas where they could improve that was going to ask you about the scrutiny this year was over two hundred twenty ejections it was thirty five percent greater than it was last year so there is increased frustration by players and manager how could improve it. I was GONNA ask you you of course are a finance professor this APP is it's going to cost us a book to to download former dramatically behind home plate there is no technology at all the fans when we're watching on TV or if you're livestream and you have access it up the game to get more butts in the seats Boston University professor Mark Williams thinks there's a way to use technology to make human better at their jobs before we turn the reins over to the bots he launched an APP that serves as a kind of digital baseball card for empires it's called up scores you can see how many calls have given empire has historic right proverbial emails and letters about that aren't doing the job right well the hope here is that this APP is really going to highlight those really strong ops and also give a tool vampires and how it could change the game it sounds like you think they do need more help from technology is that fair absolutely I think human collaboration with technology will improve outright it this labor of love I I don't expect to break even at all on this but I do expect to help fans and hopefully better the game through the for example some do really well in domes others not so much scrutinized to that extent where coaches are throwing red flags and asking that A strike call be reviewed well right now the Jackson rates humans make mistakes are we worried about sort of call reviews and things like that like we see in in certainly the NFL I mean our umpires going to be range of being able to jump Mark Williams developed an APP called up score grades umps and also shows us that weather conditions affect certain empires just like it does the player now for some related links Williams a red sox fan told me that he imagines one day fans will turn his into a sort of fantasy sports game so instead you know there are certain ups for example that do very well in certain parks there's certain upset do very well with certain pitchers and certain teams so the data's there drafting a shortstop and getting points when he hits a homer you'll be drafting umpires get points for their accuracy behind the plate it sounds crazy but I also thought I'd Rabin a fantasy Gulf league and if you're not into fantasy umpiring quite yet you might be interested in a different new Athens evaluates a pitcher's performance instead in all I'm doing is really creating the analytics so is mlb going to ask you if if they should be using this app they are the are the fans going to be able to sort of called pitch greater there's a piece about it on the ringer it was developed by Wayne boil a long island engineer who spent decades designing audio equipment he only at the APP to help his kid make his high school baseball team. The APP takes pitch data and tries to predict the batter's weaknesses strengths and most importantly how to exploit them after James we've got more INFO on marketplace tech dot Org and according to the trade publication baseball reference like we told you earlier baseball is trying to do what it can news in a given game last year that number was a record high four point three six that's an awful lot of time for peanuts and Cracker Jack Eight which means less money for teams but the League isn't just talking about robot arms to speed things up officials say they're discussing limiting the number of pitchers at team can to speed up the game because slower games means fewer ticket sales attendance has declined for six of the past seven seasons and fewer admissions means a lower college baseball team started using the APP it became boils new source of income he charges seventy five hundred dollars a year for amateur teams and fifteen thousand dollars a year for protein with the world series just around the corner were hearing a lot about player's stats teams have been taught to use baseball's copious amounts of data to exploit I'm a dealer and that's marketplace tech this is APN.

"college baseball" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast
"But most of them are actively going the other direction. So that's why I think pitchers are little more likely to go to college all things being equal. But yeah, I would say if you were to do like a three or four year study of like this year in the next three against the previous four I think there would definitely be more high school hitter, signing than the were in the past. We looked at the top of the next couple draft classes, right after the draft was done. We certainly moving is you sign into future years. And as we come through the ranks every previously haven't found we were moving pitchers down like Mike baffles. We had the middle of a percent last year in Virginia. And stuff was way down, all year old who's very hit Ables. So see, I just the way pitchers trend in general, but I do agree that there's a problem of incentives in college baseball, the coaches are just not there. Ten vice to do things necessary to win and sometimes it's at the expense of player death. Brought about the pitching side of that quesion last week at the ringer also bit in the book. And in that ringer piece, I talked about a couple guys at Dallas Baptist and one of them went to the Mets and one of them went to the Mariners. And I mentioned a guy with Hiwa who went to the Astros. And so, I think that is happening at some D one schools, one thing, I've heard from people was that we're going to start seeing pitchers at least certain pitchers move quickly through the minors, because they'll have made these adjustments even before they get into pro ball. And they'll just need a little seasoning. And then they'll just quickly ascend through the minor league levels. And I wonder whether you think that will be the case because one of the surprises to me when I was working on the book and doing some research is that. Even though we're seeing this youth movement and baseball even though player development is really advancing the average debut age in baseball has not changed and the average experience in the minors prior to making a major league debut has not changed that going back twenty years..
"college baseball" Discussed on The MLB Show
"And on the whole this season. They're open trails, only the Yankees in fan, graphs war, which is partly a reflection of the fact that it pitches, a lot of innings because their starters. Don't go deep at the games, but also they've been pretty effective until lately. They hadn't been quite as clutch as they had been. But the preference or there, that's a pretty solid group. And they didn't do a whole lot to reinforce their rest over this past off season. And that was one of the reasons I was worried about them, because you are always kind of concerned about an outlier bullpen performance in the bullpen is kind of the one area of the team that is the least consistent from year to year. But I think this is still a pretty deep end good group. And if they now get some starters back, so that they won't have to work that Penn quite as hard. That would be pretty pretty nice to it'd be good if, if they actually did manage to. Tend late into the year if they weren't staring at a wildcard game where you're talking about doing pen game, which, you know, is not always the worst idea. But the way that they went into it last season, did not inspire a whole lot of confidence. So they actually had a starter that you'd want to give the ball to in a wildcard game. That would really be nice. Well, I mean, at this point, it looks like if they went into the wild card game, they'd be gone Tampa Bay. So everybody would be pitching possibly. Yeah. At least have bay has like a Cy Young winner on its team. I don't know who would take the ball right now for, for the as I guess. I mean Frankie Bonte has been has been good. And Chris Bassett has been cutted. It's always kind of these unexpected guys in as rotation. Yeah. We're, we're talking about great college baseball names in the break, we would be remiss if we mentioned the Oakland A's without discussing North Carolina. Tar heels legend sky bolt has gotten gotten some run through. The course of the season. So before we wrap up the show. This is actually is at crams idea, which were stealing because we need content he suggested that since it's Memorial Day. And this is well, it was Memorial Day recently, and that's the part of the season where you start being able to draw conclusions about what's what's happened season that we would take the six division leaders and draft them in order from most likely to stay there by season's end to least likely. So I will will do this real quick, and I'll let you go first. All right. I will take the dodgers. I think the for me one into, but I'll take the managers. Yeah. Dodgers who are. I mean, eight games off helps and not chasing them. Are that good? You know, I'm not that not that confident of the Diamondbacks. Padres are fun and feisty. And I think, you know, they're sort of rounding down to about the, the median projection, which is. Must watch television and a lot better than last year. But maybe still another year to the most away from a really putting it all together. Number two, I'm gonna pick the, the Astros as good as the, the as have been over the course of the past two weeks or so. I mean Houston. I think I've said from the beginning of season. I think they're the best team in baseball and nothing. They've done this season has has led me to reconsider that position. I agree. So for the next pick all these other teams five of the six are teams that I predicted to win their division and was certainly not alone in doing so they were probably the consensus favorites. But the one exception, of course, is the ale central where even though Cleveland essentially didn't do anything all winter still thought they had enough to ride it out. And right now, they're trailing the twins by ten games..

Is MLB in dire straits?
"I guess that I was listening to g bag earlier, and they were talking about the dire situation that the MLB is in. A large chunk of their high paid players were free agents or what would have been high paid free agents the past year. And now this year, namely, Bryce Harper and Manny Machado. Still remain unsigned gone or the ideas that you're going to get a ten year three hundred and fifty million dollar contract. Which is what Bryce Harper's asking. So I guess my first question was. Was the one that they discussed earlier how bad is this going to be for major league baseball. But the more I thought about it the more I kinda parallel the to something that we see in the NBA we sit here, and we watch the rising stars game tonight. You got all star weekend this week. And no there's not really a threat of a lockout coming anytime soon in that league. But the NBA for me has become largely unwatchable aside from my team here in Dallas and for the past four years up until last year, really my interest level the Mavs had dropped off significantly because it just wasn't exciting basketball. But you know, who's going to win every year, or at least going to be in the championship. It feels like the warriors have owned the west, and the LeBron's have owned the east that changes a little bit now, but still probably going to see warriors and somebody else. So my question is auto flex lease and fan text eight seven seven eight eight one one zero five three. Assuming the MLB does go into a lockout which could potentially go from half a year up to. Who knows maybe a year and a half? Maybe it's longer you'd assume they'll figure something out at that point. Is that going to turn you away from baseball? Or are you more worried about the NBA, and the fact that for the large majority of people viewership has kind of gotten a little bit less consistent because you just feel like, you know, who's going to be there. Yeah. A parody wise. I see your point in in basketball, especially because when LeBron was in Cleveland the last three years you knew all right? We're pretty much on a collision course, Cavs warriors NBA finals, unless you just really enjoy watching basketball wake me up when it's June in the final start and find out who wins that thing because it became a pretty solid grudge match warriors one Cavs one warriors than go. Go ahead and win the next two. So from that point of view, I get that. But I do think we're starting to see hopefully the. What happens is off season will dictate a lot this Katie leave. What happens with clay? Maybe we start to see the dominance of Golden State, Wayne. And now we're opening up to a new wave of teams. Whether it's the Mavericks with Luca Danni kitchen Kristaps Porzingis who has Charles Barkley said earlier today, they go ahead and add one more free agent. They can all of a sudden very quickly changed the balance of power. And I hope they do. I like I said like having Luca and last year when he got Dennis Smith junior that injected the excitement that I needed back into the Mavericks, and for me, I finally feel like there's some hope which is drawn me back into watching the Mavericks and kind of slowly drawn me back into watching the NBA in general. But I would imagine I'm not the only one out there who watched four or five years of the same thing over and over and over again, especially here in the Metroplex. We're Mavericks basketball was pretty tough to watch on the counter, though, what had you glued into watching any ranger base. Ballgames aside from work in a let's say, it's not your job to go ahead and pay attention to Rangers baseball. Are you really invested not only in the Rangers? But in the MLB in general. Past year to know because the Rangers have been have been bad they've been underperforming, but I mean three years ago four years ago when I was not watching Mavericks basketball every year. The Rangers were winning the most games in the American League American League once and won another division title. So like, at least, I guess some recency bias there or some semblance of it. Like, I was interested in Rangers baseball. So I'm a baseball fan at heart. And it's really weird for me to say it basketball is my first love, and I could never I would never have imagined myself falling out of love with watching the game of basketball. But because of the circumstances not just in my team. But with the entire league I bail for a while. Yeah. I mean, we go through peaks and valleys, I can understand what you're saying there. But I think the NBA is about to be right back in that kind of interest realm for you to where you're going to be back in there for baseball. I think that's where the issue is. You got to six point five percent attendance down from last year. They're already looking into rule changes such as pitch clock. How many batters can face one pitcher given a pitching change basically ways to make the game quicker? And that's the issue baseball slow, and quite frankly to a lot of people baseball is boring for the NBA it's fast pace. Now. That's until you get into the final few minutes and teams wanna go ahead and start failing over and over again. And you get to the situation where it's like, man. Let's just go ahead and let this baby end. But otherwise, it's two and a half hours. It's uptempo. It's fast pace basketball can be fun and exciting even if it's not a team that you have a rooting interest in you can turn on a basketball game. And it's appealing to the is for. For baseball unless you're a purist. Or unless you just grew up really loving the game. It can be a very tedious boring sport to watch. And I think that's why you're starting to see especially with his younger generation that hasn't grown up with the heritage of America's pastime being baseball now that it's moved onto football. I think baseball is in far more trouble now to Mike bastards point earlier. There's articles dating back to the seventies that talked about baseball dying. And here it is. I don't think baseball is dying. I don't think it's going anywhere. But I think it is starting to get to the point where it will be eclipsed in terms of the top four by the NBA. That's my opinion. I think the NBA especially to the younger audience they're doing a much better job of featuring and showcasing their players. It's more entertaining. It's faster pace. Even if baseball adopt. Some of these different rule changes to help speed the game of pace up a little bit which will help some. I don't think it's helping enough. And if they have a walkout, and you're outta sight outta mind that will be devastating, and it is really interesting too. Like, I guess there's no true analog for the NBA. College basketball is probably the closest thing that you've got the WNBA exists. But I I think we'd all be lying to ourselves. If. You watched more than maybe highlights at scrolled across your TV if you're the average casual sports fan, Reggie, I hope I didn't offend you there as far as our resident WNBA watcher here. Oh, not offended at all. But like with baseball. What's the alternative? If the MLB goes away. Watching college baseball. Not watching minor leagues. Probably like there is no Terrell turn. If you don't have March madness to save you that disappears especially for more than half a season. We start talking like you like bask- was saying you missed the point you missed the playoffs. Twenty twenty one and then missed the entire twenty twenty two season. I guess for one the players don't have anywhere to go. So you don't feel you're going to lose them. But as your viewers go, you're right baseball, truly would kind of fall out of sight outta mind. It's already dying game. Is there anything that they can do to stop it? They're trying. I think these rule changes they're trying to implement our sign that they're moving forward in a positive direction. They understand these games when you're talking three and a half to four hour baseball games. It's just too long for the people that aren't just in love with baseball. And from the chew on for the whole game of baseball strategy to me basketball's boring until the final two minutes will to them. It is that's fair. Okay. That's all right. But you a lot of people. They're not interested in the strategy. That is baseball. They wanna see doubles triples home runs. They wanna see instant gratification right to the two one four, and this is the other area that I think puts you off basketball that we were talking about off air that. I don't think you've gotten to quite yet. Players own the NBA owners owned the MLB the NBA has kind of transition here into an issue or you've got LeBron James she thinks he can just go ahead and handpick in move players around and be the the the chess king here, that's moving all these different pieces. How he sees fit in the NBA the MLB clearly didn't have that problem. We just talked about some of the biggest names in the sport, Bryce Harper. Manny machado. They still don't have a team that sign them and JD Martinez last year. Huge reason the Red Sox went on to win the World Series. Didn't get signed till February the tough thing though, there is like it's very clear that one player can make a massive massive difference in the NBA one player in baseball, especially if it's someone at the plate. You can only do

"So you don't have them players that you can pick up and follow and Virgo love and and and track their careers. You know, you don't find out about them until once they, they make it through the majors after they've gone triple eight, four years. So you don't have that. I don't know who else west is playing because I don't have that this too. Right. Well, it's interesting. You know, you said something about the, you know, college baseball. For example, Terry, I thank you for the phone call. I understand college baseball, maybe isn't as popular as college football college basket. Ball on a national level, right in terms of people watching it consuming or whatnot, but you bring up college and you bring up the lower levels like minor league, for example, still good baseball, still baseball. If you enjoy the sport enjoyed at its purest form, you know, because it ties into what our previous caller said about, you know, I, it is a financial burden to a lot of folks to be able to bring a family to a professional baseball game. It adds up, you know, when you think about parking and ticket prices in food and concessions and I, it's not for everybody. Yeah. And that's why I've champion for a long time. You know, go to minor league games, go to independently games that are, you know, near your town. If you can't afford to go to a major league game ticket, prices are cheaper. You still get good baseball. He get hungry players who are all trying to live that dream into maybe one day make it to the big leagues themselves. You know, you're not seeing any guys hot dog in it, for example, not giving it their full effort. That's a perfect alternative. Get kids engrained in the game at a young age. That's a perfect solution. If you ask me really and truly is. But this was a good discussion today that we had about the game tonight. We have real baseball again with the cubs in the cardinals.

"Playing college baseball in oregon had grown up in washington state and what he had moved to oregon there was an allegation that i think turned out to be a aronie us that he had failed to report as a sex offender but because he was not actually a resident of oregon he was not supposed to have registered but anyway the thirties and oregon claimed that he had failed to register that kicked up a notification that you know he had violated these terms and that made it accessible to reporters and so this reporter got the file wrote a story about it and two thousand seventeen heimlich at that time i believe did not deny that he had done it walked away from the oregon state baseball team at the end of the year but then this year has gone on a bit of a publicity tour telling sports illustrated our friend scott price wrote a feature telling other writers that he did not do this new york times yeah that he did not do this that he confessed at the time because he didn't want his niece who was the victim tapped to testify in a court proceeding because he thought it would be field and i would never come out and because he was advised that the potential to be tried as an adult could lead to a substantial jail term and so that is my next that that was a lot of background explanation but i think it's important to know all the facts here that's my next question for you emily is that the fact that he now denies ever having done this means that he is either a liar which means that we should think much worse of him or that he confessed falsely and that perhaps we should have great sympathy for him and that makes this story even more complicated thanks and it sounds like that's not unusual these kinds of cases emily right yeah this is the part of worry that was like the hardest for me to grapple with into no it to think about it so it is true that people plead guilty to crimes they didn't commit it doesn't happen frequently but it happens in this kind of situation where there is a very long potential sentence hanging over someone's head and the consequences of guilty pleas can be minimized at the time and i think there's something one additional fact josh is that if i understand this correctly heimlich was two months away from having this wiped off the registry because the law in washington state was that you stay on the registry for five years he was almost on and so if whatever went wrong in terms of his not registering in oregon in the oregon thirties misunderstanding that if that hadn't happened none of us would know about any of this and i would argue that you know that was that's that's a good outcome like washington state's rule of having a five year term on the registry seems long enough to me for someone who doesn't commit another infraction who also successfully completes his diversion program however this whole question of whether he falsely pled guilty and did all this treatment and you know took responsibility and wrote a letter but in fact did nothing wrong i have no idea what to make of that it seems like it's just impossible to know the truth of that part of me is suspicious of him and feel like i what he's doing now is going to be difficult for the victim and her mother and obviously there's this deeply divisive very sad family dispute that's churning up here right because the victim's mother who divorced one of heimlich brothers is incredibly upset you can tell from her coach the press she feels betrayed let down by college and professional sports and also by the family and apparently heimlich and his brother don't really speak so whatever happened here in terms of this accusation how valid it was it it just seems like a terrible situation within the family that's kind of spilling out into the public domain in a way that's it cannot be good for the victim to have hind like now denying that these things happened on the other hand if you really didn't commit the crime you can understand why at this point when it's public he doesn't want to be associated with it and i i don't know how we're supposed to know what to make that i mean it's hard enough to think about if we stipulated that heimlich did.
