Balenciaga's 'Edgy' Lotta Volkova Is Twisted

"There's a woman named lada volkova. She is balenciaga's senior stylist. W magazine once called her the coolest stylus in the industry and by cool, this is the way people talk. They mean that she's edgy. And takes chances and those bold things. In other words, she does disgusting things that people don't. People are too afraid to speak down about because what do I know? Maybe she's so brilliant. She just knows so much more than me. I'm not going to stand up and say this idea is horrible. I mean, it's a lot of October. Because stylus in the industry. And when you get to the balenciaga level of stylish stylist, that's pretty big. Now, a few days ago, the fashion house tried to blame the photographer for the child sex controversy, but now it seems clear that the real fault is with volkova. In fact, the photographer came out and said, I don't know what they're going to do once I take the pictures and you know, I know he's got to be a little complicit when he took the pictures that those things were out, the plush BDSM teddy bears were in the little girl's hand, so I don't know what that means. But I will add them on Instagram, but of course he didn't write back to me. Because I said, what kind of a sick bastard would take pictures of kids like that? I'm sure he didn't even look at it because he's been too busy getting creamed by a lot of people in the public. But it's a big, big problem. And this vocal has been working with working closely with the head of balenciaga, in other words, the fish stinks from the head down. In other words, everybody knew about it and was in on it. Because it was edgy, and who's going to complain, but it's so popular. Do you see that Kanye wears us and Kim Kardashian wears us and Nicole Kidman does add to us? Isabelle huppert does add for us? Yeah, well, that backfired, didn't it assholes? But now ever since people became aware of this perverse ad campaign, volkova suddenly made our Instagram private. I ran through my phone to look at her Instagram, gone. But you can go on the Internet and find some snaps. If you're sadly enough, it's not that hard that they're out there. But you can get a peek at how messed up she is. I mean, you don't want to walk away from your phone and vomit. It's just a very glaring indication of how many people. People in important and very influential positions innocent little children like stray dogs. Some of the pictures I saw had disgusting imagery of children and all sorts of haunting violent sick perverted ways. Like a lady wearing a red latex shirt holding two plastic newborns covered in red red blood. Just sick shit. A toddler lifting up the skull of a dead man. A child lying in the middle of a pentagram while the devil sits on a throne behind it. Devil has his legs spread wide open. He's not wearing any pants. Just a new devil with a kid on the floor. It's actually one of those pictures with an adult woman on the floor. You got a female toddler lying on her side, smiling a little girl's smile, but honor they have this JonBenét Ramsey wig and full beauty contest makeup. There's a little, there's a little boy bound to a chair and gagged. There is a feminized little boy posing like a female in a position I can't even imagine getting in. He's got no top on he's wearing jeans and gold pumps. Then there's the bursting I've ever seen. A photo titled murder and a child's bedroom. It's so disgusting. It looks like an actual crime scene. I mean, it's almost like, I mean, I know, I'd all happen recently that the four murders and I Idaho, but it's almost like they were depicting that. You see a bloodied bed. Covers a role messy, there's a person child, I should say, I can't tell if it's female or male. For the back of the bed, face against the wall, blood everywhere in the bed. And on the bloodied carpet, there are several items of bloody clothes on the floor. There's a record player. And some records and albums around and disarray,

Roy Sheinfeld on the Maturation of Lightning

"The maturation of lightning, growing up by going vertical. By Roy scheinfeld. It's almost tautologically true that specialization within a social system increases with sophistication. In fact, increasing specialization could be one way to define social sophistication. Example one our global society is pretty sophisticated. I know how to create products, ace a trivia contest about the wire and find the best shawarma joints in Tel Aviv. But I have no idea how to knit, design and efficient photovoltaic cell, or where to go rock climbing around Maputo. We're all experts at something, learning more and more about less and less. Compare that with hunter gatherer societies, where everyone can basically duke everything. Everyone can weave a basket, catch a fish, light a fire, sing a song, recite the rules of the tribe, make a shelter, et cetera. Though their worlds are complex, their societies are simple. With very little internal differentiation or specialization. Example two. In the early days of the web, companies like CompuServe and AOL were basically one stop online shops. They were ISPs providing basic connectivity, email, social media, IE chat rooms, content in the form of news, weather, and so on, and search, often in the form of an actual curated directory. As the web became more complex, we now engage with multiple companies for each of those functions, including all the writing, editing, commenting, revising, and so on. Even a simple post like this one will involve the services of a few ISPs, a few email providers, a few cloud storage platforms, a few cloud text editors, a few image repositories, and who knows how many background services. And now, it's happening to lightning.

Elections Have Changed...

"Elections have changed. Elections are no longer what we grew up knowing them to be as we have said on this program for some time. It is now a contest. It is now a tournament of ballots. It's not about voters. It's about ballots. It's about finding pieces of paper and getting them in the right place within a certain time window. The designer of all this is a man by the name of Mark Elias. They do this under the guise under the excuse of democracy. They say, well, we are a democracy. And of course, we are not. We are a constitutional republic. That is why I have been and we have been. So focused on getting our language and our vocabulary correct, but they say it's all about defending democracy. When they are talking about defending democracy, they're not talking about the traditional promise of the founding fathers had for consent to the governed or the permission of the people or separation of powers or the beauty of the United States Constitution. No, no, they're talking about what appears to be the consent of the governed. But in reality, it is a construct. A contest, you could call it the tournament of the ballots. Who can get the most amounts of envelopes into the taxpayer funded Dropbox. That's what we are living through and the designer of it all, the architect, the grand master, is Marc Elias.

Gearing up for 2024

"It is that week. It's that week where we remind you every week that the game is Saturday. There might be Thanksgiving between now and the game, but it's really all about the game. I believe Byron York is an agnostic about Ohio State in Michigan as I am neutral about all the Republicans who were in Las Vegas. Am I right about that Byron you don't give a dog on about the whole state of Michigan or Ohio? That is absolutely let's say that for, but I don't care about the higher state in Michigan. I was raised with Alabama and auburn, which is a much more important contest in my humble opinion. Well, it's definitely not this year. I don't think you're going to find many people are going to rally to the Byron York point of view there. But what did Byron New York think about Las Vegas and the first of many candidate parades of 2023 24? Actually, here is something I would very much like to get to your opinion on, which is I'm sure you've watched several of Donald Trump's rallies over the past 6 months. And there are critics who say, well, they're not quite as spirited as they used to be, et cetera. But they're pretty as performances. Let's just talk as performance. They're actually pretty impressive. And when you put him next to anybody, other than Ron DeSantis, perhaps, but also Ron DeSantis, just as a performer on the stump. You put Trump next to Mike Pompeo or Ron DeSantis or Mike Pence or Nikki Haley if she changes her mind and decides to run against Donald Trump. Would you have a 2016 situation in which one of the performers is so much stronger than the others? That there's a bit of an imbalance there.

How Is It Possible That Kari Lake Lost in Arizona?

"There are several developments in connection with the midterms that I want to talk about very shockingly, Carrie Lake has lost her race in Arizona for the governor and Katie Hobbs who didn't debate and didn't campaign and was acknowledged even our own side even by her own side to be a lackluster candidate somehow pulled it off by what 20,000 or so of votes. This makes absolutely no sense, polls actually showed Carrie Lake leading by ten points. In fact, the whole slate, including Abe holiday for attorney general, Mark fincham, for Secretary of State, all of them were leading. And it looks like fincham has lost hominy. I'm not sure, Carrie Lake has lost. And the question becomes, how is this really possible? What's really going on here? I don't know if I have the full story. One part of the story is voter suppression by the Democrats and by the left. And perhaps by Katie Hobbs, who, after all, is overseeing the election, you have this bizarre spectacle of Katie Hobbs, a Secretary of State overseeing an election which sees the candidate. That goes, this is like being the referee in the quarterback in a game at the same time, but another way to look at it is here's Katie Hobbs, she's the she's the judge of a beauty contest in which she is herself a contestant. It's profoundly stupid. It erodes confidence in the process and all of that is becoming an even bigger and more urgent question now.

Electronic Voting Machines Are the Threat to Democracy

"Let's hear the audio clip from Tucker Carlson, audio clip number one. And what happened today in Maricopa County where some huge percentage of voting machines, electronic voting machines, according to the Arizona republic, 30%. They claim these are dominion voting machines. But it almost doesn't matter. Electronic voting machines didn't allow people to vote, apparently. And that, whatever you think of it, the cause of it, it shakes people's faith in the system. That is an actual threat to democracy. And it points up the core problem, which is we're not really very serious about democracy if we're using electronic voting machines, or if we're not requiring photo ID to vote, we could have secure elections. We don't because the small number of people don't want them, but until we do, you're going to have these moments where everybody in the country fears volatility because one side doesn't believe the result is yeah, and that's so true. Let me take you back to a column of back from 2019 from sun sentinel. It starts out like this. Governor Ron DeSantis suspended Palm Beach county's elections chief Friday and installed a Republican lawyer to oversee voting during the next presidential contest and one of the state's most democratic counties. A woman by the name of Susan butcher, she was a Democrat. She failed to properly conduct at the time three recounts in the 2018 midterm election. So desantis instead, suspended her and named the West Palm Beach attorney Wendy link after suspending her, her permanent replacement.

The Current Demise of Political Discourse

"Seen, however, in this campaign cycle, frustrates me even more than what I've just described. And that is that you've had candidates who have just intentionally not debated. And there's been Republicans there's been Democrats. Look, and I'm not talking about the races that are basically uncontested. I mean, you can have a contested race in which you know the Republicans are going to win by 40 points, and you know the Democrats are going to be in about 40 points. I mean, look, if you don't have a debate in those, is it good, probably not, but that's the way these districts are shaped. You have to depend on maybe more town halls or more interviews to get what the person actually believes or ask them, you know, if they have a campaign event, you get to ask a question that they'll answer. Those are the realities of life. But what we're seeing more and more, and we're seeing it in two governors races in particular. One is Josh Shapiro and Pennsylvania and then Katie Hobbs down in Arizona. And the interesting part about this is, is they're not saying we're not going to debate because we don't have good ideas. They're saying we're not going to wait because we don't like our opponents ideas. We don't like what our opponent has said. Katie Hobbs and Josh are being cowardly and Katie Hobbs more than she's basically all in TensorFlow. I'm not going to carry because she's what she'd ask about the elections or what she said about track Donald Trump. Again, what Katie Hobbs is saying to the American people. And if I was a Democrat in Arizona, I would be furious that my candidate for governor who wants to lead the state is refusing to get on a debate stage, even one time with Carrie Lake. Look, you might not think that you can compete with Carrie like oratorical. You might even think that, you know, you can't, you know, you get run over. We'll practice. Look, if you're wanting to be governor of the state of Arizona, you dag them well, better know how to stand up for what you believe and how to get it done. And that would be by debating ideas thinking about ideas or tells me that are simply you're going to follow orders from somebody else not yourself.

"Then there's the contested heritage board, which you have seen, which were intact through the summer, and now black history month again. We've got three articles on the website, which you'll see there. Under latest news. And that also what was on the board. And then I spoke to you about our confirmation class because, again, trying to be inclusive all the time with the youngsters, these are 12 year olds. They are all black from three different families. We had four youngsters. And I'm sitting there and you know what I look like. And we're talking about God, and we're just starting to talk about Jesus. And who was Jesus? Where did he come from? What was his background? What was life like for Jesus? And of course, as I showed you in the window, the picture of Adam and Jesus the second Adam, there they both are. We lovely brown shades of skin. And the youngsters just were, you know, their jaws dropped and any dropped. You know, and I felt right. We've moved on there. They've felt, I think they felt much more accepted as just people, human beings. Yeah, and I think, you know, it makes a huge difference when you can see yourself. I think it's really maverick, actually, that you guys have in your I mean, you've got wonderful stained glass windows. They're absolutely gorgeous. And then when you say, look, there's our black Jesus there. I was like, flabbergasted. We were seeing that in a Church of England church. And in the office, there's when on holy Saturday, when Jesus rises out of the Gates of hell and the Russian eye can icon shows this really well. But he's got Adam in one hand. And eve in the other. And as a miss Brown again, and Jesus's hand is brown and his other hand holding eve's white hand, as it happens, that hand is brown as well. And we've got all those brown and dark and gorgeous red brown colors. But again, there it is. And the artist that designed these windows really knew a lot of background and there's a lot of theology in these windows, but also he made the faces look more like the people that they might have been. Yes, they're not European. It's not a European. They are quite eastern. They're Byzantine looking a lot of them because a lot of his work was based on icons and that kind of style. But it shows that the Victorian windows on the south side there are two of them there, where it's the usual blond beards and pretty faces of people that you see in Beck and high street. You know, that's one of the things that really stood out to me is that for those that don't know, beckon them is not known for being hugely diverse. No, no, although saint George's church is. Yes, it is. Why is that do you think? Do you I don't know. You know, we've got in the service sides persons people that do readings in the study groups. We've got Chinese Indonesian Indian

And I was like, now this seems interesting for a Church of England church to come out and talk about contested heritage. And then Joan, you popped up, didn't you? So always lurking. In a great conversation and I just want to explore that just a little bit more. So the audience though, contested heritage, what is that? Well, it came out of the lament to action reports, the Church of England report on racial justice. And because saint George's is one of the major churches, just labeled major because it's large. We get with cathedrals. We get information and what we should be doing and taking a lead. And so we got an email about that. Also, our rector, father Jeremy, is in Rochester. The bishop's adviser for black and minority ethnic matters. So we're really interested in this. So we set up a committee to look at contested heritage, and that met in June of 19 2021.

"Were once known as the Boston bean eaters. Oh man, all right, I look forward to next week. We have the hammers coming down. The gavels coming down from Todd and Sarah awaits the answer. Todd, thanks for doing this. All right, every daddy. Thank you. Bleacher tweets already buster bleacher tweets for a Wednesday, Nick lurkin at banker DJ Nick writes and Monday's episode was great and filled with my cardinals, but how does there no mention of Arenado's weekend hits for the cycle one night then has two home runs the next one of which was part of their historic back to back to back to back first inning. All right, Nick, thanks for getting our back. Yeah, we should have mentioned that you're a 100% right. You have now so we got that covered. Check that box. Last one for today. Mitchell at tigers of Detroit rates and I'm a little surprised that Otani is not brought up in the MVP to debate more often. He has a one 39 OPS plus one 47 ERA plus and leads the AL in war per baseball reference. Did he set the bar too high for himself with last year's performance? Yeah, Mitchell, we talked about on Friday's podcast. I talked about that with Jessica Mendoza. She still feels like Aaron judge the MVP. I do feel like, unless judge keeps up a ridiculous pace and goes over 60 homers that Otani is going to run him down because he's adding value on both sides and as we said over and over and over again last year, Vladimir Guerrero junior is great as he was. He just couldn't match that the production value. So I do think that ohtani in the end is going to wind up winning the MVP. All righty, that's it for bleacher tweets. Hashtag bleacher tweets while you're watching games, we will be back on Friday. That's it for today. My thanks to Nick

"He was there along for the ride, but buster, there is this powerful narrative that has developed over the decades that the Dodgers living Brooklyn and the Giants leaving upper Manhattan. These were franchises that were ripped apart from the body of this city. And it always amazes me that attendance figures. Down, the two ballparks really were falling apart. This is at a time when the neighborhoods that the ballparks were in, where changing certainly deteriorating in certain respects. So the West Coast looked pretty darn good. And when you've got the taxpayers footing the bill for a brand new ballpark, even if it was candlestick park, that's got to be an appealing thing, right? Okay, so you're saying he was still a winner. You know, Wally pip was a big leaguer. He had a he had a good career in horse stoneham. And he moved on to a better deal. So I hear you. You were polite in pushing back. That was very nice of you. All right, let's do this week's quiz will bring Sarah back into it. Sarah, are you ready to set aside the Discord and go forward with this week's quiz? I am and I will probably get it wrong. But I am ready. As always, a one in four chance is the rule here. Before adopting their current nickname, this club was known as the perfecto's. Was it a, the Cardinals? B the Dodgers, C, the cubs, or D, the guardians, before adopting their current nickname, they were known as the perfectos. Cardinals, Dodgers, cubs, or guardians. Sarah, you want to go first? So you get on record for sure. I have no confidence in this one, but cardinals is my answer. All right, Taylor. I'll go cubs, I'm going B Dodgers that jumped into my mind right away and if I'm wrong, I was badly wrong. Well, I don't know much, but I do know that Sarah has prevailed because it was the Cardinals. In 1899, were known as the St. Louis perfectos. So after we tally up what we tally up, we could have a horse race going on here. That is 5 wins now. Wow. No, not yet. Not yet. Wait and see. All right. Todd, before you go, tell me what you thought of the padre city connect uniforms. Wow, buster, you are colorblind, correct? I am and based on the response I saw to these on social media, I should be thankful that I am colorblind. That's kind of what I was getting at. All right, two things. We separate the aesthetics from the market speak that surrounds the release of these city connect uniforms when each and every one of them gets out there. So for those who are not familiar with them, they are a nod to the fact that San Diego is, of course, on the border of Mexico that there is two huge Latino and Latino influence on the market. They are loud. Buster, they remind me a little bit. Maybe a whole lot of some people have said Arizona iced tea cans. I think they remind me of the Miami Heat Miami Vice uniforms. So everything is going to remind everybody of something else. They are loud. I will say this, the Padres have existed for over half a century. And they have had many identities over the years for them to have yet another one loud or otherwise it somehow seems appropriate. So bring it on, Manny Machado will look good in them. I would not look good in them. You would not look good in them. Yeah, I saw Fernando Tati's junior likes the idea of the bucket hats along with those uniforms. Who knows where we are. By the way, I figured out why I immediately popped into mine that the Brooklyn baseball franchise referred to as the perfectos because they were at one point the superbas. Yes, yes, the Brooklyn superbas, and the bridegrooms as well. I don't think I'm giving any few answers. But to wrap it up of that era of my favorite and the favorite of many, the Atlanta Braves of today

"Not reference a score at the conclusion of today's quiz. It's okay. Until I have a recount. You don't need to take a look. I have the audio files. Oh my gosh. Got the goods. I have it right now. I'll send it to Taylor to make it sound pretty. But so I think in fairness to Todd oh, sorry, carry on. Wow. I think a fairness Todd will give him a week to do his research. I mean, think of him as being like the Supreme Court in 2000, right? We're having a recount and he's going to go and ultimately decide. Oh, sorry, I just went down the road of politics, didn't I? Anyway, we'll let Todd do some research using the information that you send along Sarah, but you were on record is contesting the results of this election. Yes, and I am confident I am confident I have the receipts. I have the proof. Would that being said, I will probably get this week's question wrong, but that's okay, 'cause I have four wins. And Taylor is quite nervous about this because he was feeling very comfortable in his place in the standings and all of a sudden Taylor feeling a little bit more fragile with the receipts now being presented by Sarah. I knew this was coming, Sarah is a person of integrity and honesty. So I knew that there was probably some fire to the smoke that she was throwing out there. So I've been bracing for this and here we are that's arrived. Well, we'll wait and see. We'll wait and see because Todd is the ultimate authority on this and Todd also is a person of great integrity and great credibility. We'll just see where that goes. I have a question, which may tip the balance of this conversation. Yes. If I am not mistaken, there have been a couple of weeks where Sarah has not been with us while we were doing this live. And it could well be that Taylor retroactively asked the question on my behalf. Is that the case? Yes, there were some weeks that I was absent. I believe that we have solved the mystery so I'm going to go back, I will do my due diligence. I will get my judicial robes on, but I am going to go out on a limb and say that we got to the bottom of things. But let's see what we get. Wow, okay. This means that Todd's going into the weekly quiz bylaws. Again, more research is needed to do will have a ruling next week Saturday. You accept that? I accept it if it goes in my favor. My favorite. So we are right back to politics, aren't we? My favorite, I would like to bring it to the Court of Appeals and have listeners weigh in. Oh my goodness. All right, Doug, let's talk about this week's phantom franchise. So buster, the New York Giants, they were running on fumes by the mid 1950s. The Giants won the World Series in 1954. The following year they averaged but 10,432 fans per home game. And the following year, 1956, the club finished in 6th place in the 18 national league and attendance plummeted by 24% on a year over year basis. The team finished last in the national league in attendance in both 1956 and 1957, averaging a little more than 8000 fans per home game at the decrepit Polo Grounds, which Sports Illustrated called an antiquated museum. Giants owner Horace stoneham began to discuss a team move as early as 1955. The Giants owned the triple-A Minneapolis millers and the territorial rights that came with them. And metropolitan stadium, a state of the art, major league red ballpark, was being constructed on a 164 acre plot of farmland in Bloomington. The ballpark opened on April 24th, 1956, and the Giants and their farm team drew a sellout crowd to an exhibition game a couple of months later, which certainly opened stoneham's eyes to the potential there. The Brooklyn Dodgers, meanwhile, were plotting a move of their own, and in early 1957, they entered into an agreement with the city of Los Angeles to transfer the Dodgers west. According to a March 1957 document, later released by the family of Brooklyn owner Walter O'Malley, stoneham had quote made up his mind some time ago to move his franchise from New York to Minneapolis. It goes on to say, he told me that his decision was quite independent of anything, Brooklyn might do. He is prepared to move for the 1958 season. By July, however, stoneham said that he was weighing hoppers from Minneapolis, San Francisco, and Oakland, telling the Minneapolis tribune, if Minneapolis has a better proposition than San Francisco, we will lose. O'Malley approached his longtime New York rival stoneham asking him to consider the possibility of a dual move to the West Coast, with two clubs easing the travel situation for the national league's other team. None of which were situated west of St. Louis at the time. The Giants eventually finagled a deal that called for a new taxpayer funded ballpark in San Francisco with very favorable lease terms and a lot of parking. They became, of course, the San Francisco Giants, but today buster, we are celebrating the Minneapolis giants who are this week's forgotten franchise. So I want to see if you agree with me on this. Horse stoneham is kind of like the equivalent in baseball history to like Wally pip compared to Walter O'Malley's Lou Gehrig. Yes, it always feels like horse stoneham did the wrong thing.

"The Astros are interesting. You know? I gotta be honest. I look at the Astros and I see Jake Myers and chaz McCormick and Jose Siri and feel like among those three, they do a pretty reasonable job in center. It would be great to have a star at every position. You know, would you, if you're Houston, would you not prefer either Contreras or Josh bell? Because I understand the reticence of bringing in a new catcher at the trade deadline, especially with someone like Martin Maldonado, who's as respected as he is. Wilson Contreras is the best bat on the market. And you're going to need every little thing you can if you're the Astros to go out and beat the Yankees. And to beat the Red Sox or to beat the twins are going to be the Blue Jays. I don't know, maybe Corey Lee takes that job. I sort of doubt it at this point. I just feel like Martin Maldonado is not a not a sensitive guy. If you're a dusty baker and James click and you explain to him, we can get this guy who can win us a ring. How can he not say let's go do it? Yuli guriel has been ineffective at first base this year that to me, first and catcher is big a hole for the Astros at center field is. Well, and I tell you what, you could get Contreras. And I've talked about teams along these lines. I'm sure you have two, where you bring them into a role where he's not necessarily just the primary catcher. Maybe he's actually catching a third of the games. Certain starts, he's serving as a DH shoot and maybe teach him at first base. Something, but he clearly was an upgrade up immediately. He's played the outfield too. Right. Before we go, tell us where everything stands between Juan Soto and the nationals, because that is a fascinating situation developing there. Yeah, there's just such a such an interesting dynamic in that you've got these sides that are talking about one of the biggest contracts potentially of all time in professional sports. The most potentially new money for a contract in a baseball deal in history. And all of that is against the backdrop of the team being sold. And so if you are a potential owner on one hand, you might want Juan Soto to stick around because you've got this star. You also might look at it like, why am I investing with a brand new 400 million plus dollar liability? For which I am responsible. And I understand that, you know, $400 million for Juan Soto is like market ish, not if you look at his numbers this year, but I always have faith in Juan Soto's ability to be a productive offensive player. So I think all of that will even out by the end of the year. But I'll tell you this if he is hitting three 20 as opposed to in the two 20s, if he's getting on base 48% of the time as opposed to around 40 where he's at now. It's a lot easier to up that number on the contract and sell it to this new owner and keep Juan Soto in Washington. And I got to say that as we move along here, it's beginning to develop a little it reminds me a lot of what happened with Manny Machado and the Orioles and that they wound up selling him. You remember in his last year with the team and with the benefit of 2020 hindsight, we all knew they should have sold them before. And so today, the Orioles

"Now, AJ preller is willing to move guys that you wouldn't think he would move and go after guys who you wouldn't think he would go after. And yet I look at the Padres and it feels like they need a bat like a Brian Reynolds would be perfect for them. I still don't think Brian Reynolds is going to move because I feel like the pirates are maybe on the verge of something. They're not there yet. But with O'Neill Cruz who looks at every bit the star that his tools say he can be. With Brian Hayes with Nick Gonzalez coming with Jack swanky, having all that power in the outfield and Reynolds there with some pitchers on the verge as well. I don't know, Pittsburgh feels a little bit like where Ken just city is, which is that you need to start adding guys to this core that you have in place. And you need to start spending some money. So preller loves to go for moonshots and Brian Reynolds at this point feels like a moonshot. But if he's willing to give up CJ Abrams, you know, at that point, the pirates have to at least listen. And he's been willing to give up top prospects in the past. I'm fascinated by the decision the Orioles are facing because they obviously this has been a year of progress. They're playing better. They're nudging toward 500. And on the other hand, this is their play in the American League east. They're probably four teams are going to make the playoffs out of the east. The oils are almost certainly not going to be one of them. What do you do? If you're the ownership and you feel like you're turning the corner and you have all these marketable players. I got to say, I kind of dig watching the Orioles, you know, just some of the reclamation projects there. I've seen Jorge Lopez fail a number of places and now he's throwing 99 with nasty breaking stuff in his first real full run at the bulb. But I trade Jorge Lopez. Trey Mancini is a superstar human being. And a great addition to any Clubhouse and a leader in Baltimore and someone who's been the Paragon of consistency. And I probably trade him too. Because the Orioles are getting to a point right now where I think they need to start running themselves like they're going to be here soon. Like all of these high draft picks, whether it's adley rushman, Colton cowser, we have seen heston Kerry stag come back finally. It's getting to the point where they have to start to try and win. And they're not there yet. So you remain, as long as the rules are in place, here you remain in asset building. Hate to say it, but not like they got a ton of fans turning out right now who they're going to scare off with this. And it's been a pretty grim situation there for a while and frankly, you gotta see the plan through. But we're getting close to not cutting time. They're in Baltimore. They need to start trying to be competitive, we've had enough enough tankage going on for franchise for a while. I wonder about Cedric Mullins. I think he would be, for example, a great fit with the Astros. You see where

"Trade market. I think you would agree with me. As I make my transition to what we're going to talk about before the elegantly done. Thank you. Veteran podcast host. Before we get to August 2nd, give me a team in your eyes most in need of a deal to augment a part of their team. I have a clear number one in my mind. What about you? Oh boy. You know, is it bad that I'm sticking in the, this may not be a team that ultimately is a huge threat to win a World Series, but the Minnesota Twins need a starting pitcher in the worst kind of way. They just keep running through guys, whether it's Chris pad at Chris archer now on the injured list. And I think the twins have a lot of the elements in place to be a dangerous team in October. But they need that starting pitcher and I don't know if it's Frankie montas. I don't know if it's Luis Castillo, but they need that bigger name guy. I got the Saint Louis Cardinals. When I look at their everyday lineup, look at their bullpen, their defense adapt, all those young players, they're trying to integrate. They clearly have a surplus. The guys, they are in a position to make a deal and who knows about Frankie montas. And by the way, you and I a lot of times, you know, you wait for information on these injuries. He left the game on Sunday. Still don't have MRI results. Apparently, only the results are only being sent out there by horse and buggy because you know that they probably have a pretty good idea what's going on, but other teams are waiting to see because he was perceived to be the potential number one. If I'm the Cardinals, I'm even calling the reds who probably are not predisposed to talking with you about Luis Castillo. In some kind of deal, but they need that guy. They need a number one type guy number two type guy so that not only perhaps run down the brewers in the national league central, but also to be a threat in what feels like a superpower postseason the national Lake. And it would be interesting if the Cincinnati reds were and listen to the Cincinnati reds are a team that has approached Luis Castillo in the past with contract extensions that has tried to get Tyler melee locked up. What would happen if Luis Castillo were off the market? I don't know that that's going to happen necessarily because he is so clearly at this point the number one guy. But if he were to be taken off the market, what are some of these teams do in terms of starting pitching to help themselves? Is there anybody out there who's a real difference maker in game changer? No, you know, the type of guy that a lot of people that see might become available be like guy like Kyle Hendricks, but even he went out of the game last night, showed their last night. So there is not there is slim pickings and you're right, you know, twins would be a team that could use that guy cardinals for sure. I'm just going to throw teams that you give me 30 seconds on what you've heard, what you expect. Dodgers. You know, as much as it looks like the Dodgers want to would want to prioritize their bullpen at this point because they've had a number of injuries and ineffectiveness from Craig kimbrough. I'm not sure that they're going to be out there swinging the big deal. They always seemingly take a big swing in July at this point. I wonder if that is a starting pitcher, which is odd considering the starting pitching depth that they've had, but that's been chipped at by walker Bueller's injury. You don't know what you're going to get from Kershaw, now Chris Taylor's out. The Dodgers have a lot of ability to do a lot of things, but they're counting on Blake trying and coming back on thus in May coming back. On Tommy Kenley coming back and they feel like there are enough reinforcements there. Bullpen wise, where that may not be the area they needed. Yankees. What do the Yankees really need? And that's sort of a rhetorical question. I know every Yankee fan is going to scream at me. Left Fielder. And I get that. But if the Yankees stood pat with that be the worst thing buster, no, but I would say I look at Andrew Ben and teddy, the type of player that he is, the postseason experience that he has. You know, the fact that he puts the ball and play gets on base. And I think in the short term, as a rental, if I'm Brian cashman, I'm doing what I can do to do that. See, that's interesting because Andrew Ben and Tandy is that very unique deadline player. Everyone wants him. I mean, the low payroll teams want him to high payroll teams want him big markets want him small markets want him. When Andrew Ben intend he goes, I think Kansas City, it better get an absolute haul for him because the interest is frankly just off the charts from everyone there. I've heard from teams when I say big market small market, every one likes Andrew Ben and tendi and the questions about him at this point are more is he trying not to hit for power and is he prioritizing and emphasizing average and the answer is yes. I mean playing in Kaufman stadium is a different beast than other ballparks. And I think what you could see if Ben and Tandy goes somewhere else is a return of the biceps and a little more pop depending on the stadium that he's playing. And if he's in Yankee Stadium, I know he loves to go in the other way, but he could attack that short porch in right field as much as other left handed hitters do. Yeah, hitting over 300, 400 on base percentage almost. He's just been phenomenal. The Padres always interesting, typically aggressive, you know, AJ prowler's poking around. Yeah, he's going to do something. And the Padres have such great starting pitching depth. You sit there and think, well, they're not going to do it.

"And I don't know who that is that you spoke with. It could be Eric neander. Head of baseball. It could be a lot. It could be a lot of guys. That opinion is not unique. No, but I was going to say because the rays, how could you possibly argue with their success, right? And the way they run their pitching step, they've been unbelievable going up against these financial giants in the American League's toughest division in baseball. And on the other hand, you know, I don't know how you feel, but you sit down and you're looking at a number of games to watch and like, I don't like watching the 7 relievers that I'm not going to know in four years. That's the part that I think that Theo is talking about. Like you need those guys to be the hulk hogans of the sport. You know, the absolute stars of the sport. And while there's a lot of sentiment for it, I find this issue to be a lot like a lot of other issues in baseball, where there might be general agreement that the sport could use some change in it. I just don't know what the engine of change is going to be. I thought it might be the union. I actually had a union official come up to me last year and ask, hey, to give me a pressing issue going into these contract negotiations. And I said, you guys got to find a way to restore the preeminence of starting pitchers. And it's not only good for the sport to have those superstars, the Madison Bumgarner's, the Sandy Koufax, you know, the Clayton Kershaw's, but it also helps the union. And I was a little bit surprised that there wasn't more push from within the union to do that because as you know, those guys have for a lot of years have been the standard bearers about where salaries are on the pitching side. No question. I think part of that is, frankly, what the rank and file numbers have become, there are more relief pitchers than there are starting pitchers. And the easiest way to change this, frankly, is by getting rid of pictures. And that's what Theo Epstein proposes having a cap of 11 pitchers on every active roster. And what that would do is multifold, not only would it force starting pitchers to prioritize going deeper into games by prioritizing going deeper into games. You wouldn't be able to go max effort on your stuff, not going max effort and throwing more strikes and trying to induce contact would put ball in play more. So you would have more action. You would see a return of a lot of the principles that are going to dovetail with no shifts, which are going to be gone and having this all sped up by the pitch clock. It's going to be difficult to go max effort every time anyway. So I understand it would be a wildly different game. It already is going to be a different game next year. But the notion that pitchers can not adapt back to what they once were because they've tasted the sweet, sweet nectar of max effort pitching and of elite spin and of 25 plus inches of carry on a fastball, high in the strike zone. I mean, you have all of these things that they've fallen in love with. How about they fall in love with complete games? We have and I'm sorry, I know I sound like an old man here, but what happened buster is that in an effort to try and keep pictures healthy. Baseball peeled back and back and back on what it asked of its pitchers. What it asked of its starters. We went from a four man rotation to a 5 man rotation. We went from a 150 pitches game, which admittedly is absurd to a 120, which really isn't necessarily to a hundred and even blow now. And what have we found injuries are no better? They're not a 100 million plus dollars already, have been lost to arm injuries on the injured list this year. And billions in the past and the reason that guys aren't staying any health, the ears, because they didn't replace fewer pitches with less stress and strain, they just changed the way that they pitched. And so the combination of the max effort pitching with the fewer pitches has led to these one inning burst guys that you see now who come in have this goofy stuff and don't have to do something like navigate a lineup three times through. And so many of those guys are winding up in the injured list because they're like they're like the Lamborghini that's redlining and then breaks down and they don't wind up lasting but they are it's amazing. Here's the thing buster we don't need a bunch of Honda chords. That's not what this is arguing. I think that there can be I'm not much of a car guy, but I think there can be like Mercedes AMGs like classy and yet under the hood there is some thunder. And it's going to be there for you and be strong and take you a long way. There's a lot of need of that type of guy

"Get back all the time from folks who grew up as baseball fans like you and I did, they can't stand it. What type of reactions did you get from people in the sport about this? Pretty strong ones. People have really, really strong opinions on this. And what it comes down to, ultimately, and this is a battle that other sports are facing as well. It's efficiency versus entertainment, right? So you look at the MBA and organizations realize three point shot was undervalued. It was undervalued because if you went and made one, let's say you shoot 33% from three point range, that's the equivalent of shooting 50% from two point range and teams are a lot likelier to shoot 33% from three than 50 from two. And so they started taking more threes. And it changed the dynamics of the game. It was a completely different game that fans had to adjust to. In baseball, I think, with the starting pitcher, it's even more stark because one can argue that there is something majestic about these super relievers who have been bred coming into games and throwing a hundred with these filthy breaking balls. And making pitching ninja, the Twitter star that he is and that there's something beneficial to the relievers. But at the same time, I think Theo Epstein makes the most impassioned argument about this and has a solution that I think is pretty elegant, frankly. And he looks at it like these are the protagonists of baseball games. Starting pitchers are the ones through whom the stories of the games can be told if they're allowed to tell them. But the problem is that organizations have prioritized that efficiency. That desire to win games because that is their mandate. If you're a GM and you do not win buster, you get fired. So while in their hearts, they want to go back to how things were. In their heads, they say, why would I ever go back there if I found something that's more effective? And I was talking with one general manager and he said something to the effect of, I'd love to do it. I think it would be great for the game. Just wait until I'm not a GM anymore.

"Doing great buster. How are you? I'm doing okay because we're not so close to the trade deadline. I'm starting to feel that adrenaline be getting to kick in when the first day of July are like, oh my God, it's right around the corner. Yeah, except it's been a little odd because it's August 2nd this year, which we've had July 31st burned into our heads for so long and then it's July 30 last year and that's August. Second and it's bouncing around. I understand. It's taken me a little while to get used to like those extra 48 hours might kill me. Wow, the trade deadline kills this every year, right? And it feels like there's like this mountain of stuff that's going to happen here in the next month, but we're sort of in a calm right now. Within that, today, you had a story posted on ESPN dot com about the state of starting pitching around the majors. What did you learn? It's grim and it's not grim because of the starters themselves. It's grim, I think, because of what's expected of them because of this evolution that we've seen in baseball that really has been going on for upward of a hundred years now. You have to look back at what was expected of the starter in the 19 20s into the 1960s, but I think there have been two sort of seminal moments that have changed it. And that was really in the 80s when the expectation to complete games was not it faded away a little bit as arm injuries became more prevalent as Tommy John surgery became something that more and more pictures had, but really if you look back at 2013, there was a 5 man rotation at that point and guys were throwing 200 innings less than they had in the past, but still doing it. And Dennis story came out on baseball perspectives by Mitchell lichtman. And it talked about the times through the order penalty. And teams have realized that longer a pitcher goes through a game, the less effective he tends to be. But I'm not sure that a lot of people in baseball understood just how stark that actually is. And what used to be something that if you're a starter not going through the lineup for a third time, you absolutely failed. Teams now looked at like if you're a starter going through a lineup the third time, we've failed. We haven't put our team in the best position to win. And when that happens, starting pitching innings absolutely cratered to the point where they are now, the average start in the big leagues is 5.15 innings, the average star. And the minor leagues is 4.23 innings. And we've been left in this position where less and less is being asked of starting pitchers who have been in baseball's past, the marquee attraction of games. How often any more bus or do we look at a starting matchup and feel like this is an event? It's just not there because the de emphasis of the starting pitcher is been so stark. And so when, you know, we had a conversation about service time manipulation, you know, privately with folks with baseball executives. It was amazing because they would run through the rationale off the record because no one would acknowledge it on the record. They would run through the rationale in the United States, well, how do you feel about it? And a lot of them would say, I hate it. And I get the same reaction to this trend with starting pitchers where it's like, okay, I understand that the idea of running out all these relievers and not counting on starters as much. How do you personally feel about it and what

It's just and you know what we're proud of all of you for listening because we would not have continued to do this if we had not had any lists like intense amount of support that we didn't realize that we even we that we had that sort of cloud that people actually wanted to listen to say things to them on a regular basis regular basis and from all over the world. I think that's been the most shocking part. We figured like our canadian friends. There figured we figured they were tune in but we did. We had no idea that we would have listers in australia. And england is land in france thailand the philippines south africa. Your name wrong all the time. I'll thief rica. Oh sorry so sorry. Thank you everybody. It's amazing i read episode two hundred And so you know we did a little something fun for episode one hundred if you haven't happened to listen to that one yet but for episode two hundred. We decided that we were going to revisit a very popular topic of ours and a very exciting topic because even though we talked about it even though you talked him out it we had never actually experienced it until this year. And so for our two hundred episode julie and i basically we watched eurovision. And we're gonna talk to you about it. And i cannot wait. We are going to break down. This is like those. And i didn't realize this was a thing either. I mean. I don't know why i didn't think so. But like there are tons of youtube accounts where people are like reacting to lithuanians song in eurovision. Twenty twenty one. Yeah yeah like the goggle box. Basically you in england. And we're you know we were over there. We would be flipping through the channel. Yahtzee like we're gonna have folks celebrity goggle box and we'd be like why are we going to and then we would. We would watch them watching the tv and be like what are we doing here. And just yeah yeah. It's very popular. It's extremely popular to watch other people. React to a thing that you're both watching. I mean i'm one hundred percent on board with it. Yeah so we're gonna do kind of do that for you guys. Only two weeks later and three years. Yeah through an audio medium. Yeah it'll be great. Yeah because especially we had so many people episode eighty was called no eurovision. all about eurovision. We had so many people who are like either. They had been your vision devotees for decades. Yeah contact us or people who are like. I didn't even know this was any. Yeah exactly and i think before that you and i might have been somewhere in between we might have been like. Oh yeah your vision where they wear like crazy costumes each year right like we always know some scandinavian countries going to show up wearing a mask and for and horns and something somebody will be in a spacesuit. Yes hang on stage together. I think that's probably where we were on that spectrum by certainly was not aware of how and this is like i mean how like american centric like north american centric and this is but i guess i didn't realize how huge it was. How huge like the music olympics. Yeah absolutely and i am one hundred percent on board with it. I i knew i would love it. I think did not conceptualize how much i would love eurovision. I guys guys. I love your vision so much. I honestly like friday the day before the grand final. Yeah i turned to steven i said. I'm sad i'm legitimately sad because tomorrow is the last day we can watch eurovision until next year. I like. I am tote so absolutely and fifty percent onboard in love with eurovision. And we need to tell everybody. Y yeah absolutely so where you just knew a quick recap of the rules and how your vision works will get into song contests twenty twenty one. So the rules of the show mark. All vocals have to be some live. You're not allowed to have voices on the backing tracks. You can have like music backing track. Crazy sounds and stuff like that but the vocals after we live. Each submission has to have vocals. You're not allowed to have just instrumental. Music and nineteen thousand nine performers can sing in any language before there were like requirements about like it had to be a language in official language of your country or it had official language of the eu.
