"Boy boy watch one for aid no that they stole from us I know this should be the parade today two hours you'll be on a float right when that are doing great wealth no longer on the streets of a San Francisco but instead it's in Kansas city are they already planning their their parade for is there a downtown LA where would you have a man for it get haven't died years have their parade a good quite easy they have there for it and you will convince Scully way I'm sure the Lakers have parades when when when yes or No Way yeah well there is a there is LA live now yeah I guess a better since they built since angels all of a sudden there was a parade yeah that's true but then after age the first your staples was built was two thousand was the first of the three in a row for Shaq and Kobe yeah that's right so anyway are you were covered and good deal thank god until I until like there is today and the Dodgers made a huge trade last night the Houston Rockets made a huge trade last explain that one to me I'm not really sure on that one I don't know how that impacts de Angelo or not but right now you have to say the warriors were smart to do this sign in straight trade for Russell when I don't want any part of them isn't it all right now you can get a Andrew Wiggins yeah there's a market very last yeah I think there's gonna be a mark can I think that yeah I don't I did things can change in a minute but if if they're gonna wait I think I'd wait I think there's a market for this guy more than what we think there's still a few new if you're new definitively that Yanis yeah was it now and you could not get him then maybe you would pull the trigger on the trade for Andrew Wiggins but that's not I know right now so there's no real advantage with for doing it right now and less d'angelo Russell would chair you know both his ACL as in both of his Achilles even if we tore one his hobbies it's still trade of how bad luck in that regards if he's saying no you're right no all right I mean to Kevin Durant you know Kevin Durant's not gonna play all this year I saw the video him running today but he's not gonna play all year anything I think it's gonna be compromised next year he's still got a huge deal so there really is no physical risk anymore in an ACL or an Achilles injury because these athletes to some degree recover so you could make that deal and then you know obviously with the Dodgers of John and their team and I was watching Boston TV this morning John because I didn't wanna didn't wanna watch too much Kansas city TV could write their parade is starting right now but the the red Sox had a window to sign Mookie Betts and they just could not get it done and I think he is a union guy I actually yesterday afternoon after I recovered from our flight home just sealed the drapes locked the door watch the Irish man again I got Jimmy Hoffa yeah the good of the union we get the academy awards are on Sunday night the right hospital that much time to watch all these films anyway I think Mogi being a good union guy wants to take it to the end and see just how much she can get and you look at his numbers he was down a little bit last year but still his war is second the best in baseball behind Mike trout since sixteen is arguably one of the best players in baseball so they yes they the red Sox could not sign them and they the key was the the Dodgers manager Friedman taken David price's deal but this is a loaded baseball team there's there's no doubt about it I mean there they got all start virtually every physician Gavin locks as a young second baseman catcher Will Smith as young but they're two of the best young players around so just look at their lineup I mean they are Ludia their solo today to flip Jack Peterson to the angels after they made this trade which one I I saw this yesterday I didn't realize he was so good against right handed pitching in a nine twenty PS with thirty six home runs I mean my god and you just got him for I don't know who they got in return it didn't sound like it was anybody great that's a great move he's not come you know Jack Peterson isn't maybe what was supposed to be with me first came up but Jeez that's pretty good numbers Hey I wonder if anybody else was in line right I think in the eighties or something this is the thing the thing that this contract screams to me is because Chris Pratt looks like he's gonna be traded and he's all the different because he's got Boris I get it the red Sox can't come up with the money the sun looking beds and the cubs can't come up with money to sign Kris Bryant wears a game go another major market teams with a boatload of money and they decided that they don't want to see this out to the and who's to say that this would resolve the red Sox at some point when you got to pay these guys what they're worth and the red Sox have money and the cubs have money and yet Chris price the next guy up I don't get it it was the day that they want to be below the C. B. T. head of the balanced tax and a the price deals what got him right and David price did pitch really well to get on the World Series a couple years ago but they the red Sox one of the get below so they're doing like drop their pay rolled a hundred seventy nine million dollars the Dodgers with this transaction move up to two oh nine so they have the second highest payroll in baseball behind only Yankees it to forty four so I mean you would think you never know how it's gonna play out that the Yankees will will clearly when the American League east along campus got some to save about of the Boston still got players they just don't have okay batches a centerpiece but really as far as our look at it and it doesn't really I know you know you know everybody just wants to concede that Ashley was to the Dodgers they're loaded there were two to live a lie they go Muncie lockers Seger Turner around the infield they got Pollock now and left Cordy Ballenger goes to center and my mom I'm Aboukir right and then they've got we will straighten Gavin locks you know looks at second most mentor younger players they got the rotation Taylor on a dealer there Logie off the bat I think from a giant perspective it does hurt some I I know you're not saying we're competing with them per se but you're still competing with them they are the LA Dodgers in the one saving grace was that they didn't win the World Series since eighty eight and they may not win the World Series there's no guarantees are could be injuries they could just flat out lows on the field and not be a strong but this is a a transaction obviously that never watch in one parade through the streets of Kansas city made you feel like should be ours then the reality is that the Dodgers just made a huge transaction yesterday that they feel will set them up for their first parade in in over three decades so the streets of San Francisco today John yeah it's a bad they're all quiet day because it was the first thing I thought of when I got up today was was the non for a day one and the Dodgers just stole Mookie Betts too because essentially what they got was a got Bette's price of this came from the angels I know nothing about the eight the a red Sox paid fifty million dollars they paid half of prices salary and they gave up Alex Verdugo in Kentucky my lawyer in John Peterson my it is a good place my idea is a useful he was nice in the pool it was nice of the pen as he can do a lot of things yes started can swing is good please get dressed get picked up by minister that's a that's a helluva trade and and like you said it's it's depressing going to and fro and Jack feeders yeah and yeah and he's not a Verdugo Peterson and I ate yeah and he's a nice player too but like you said Fuhrman from of the giants perspective when you get excited about Wilmer Flores was a nice piece and then they make a deal like this you this girl come on it's ridiculous well I mean it's different stratosphere but the Wilmer Flores transaction main street without question you're gonna have a different line up every day based on which arm the opponents pictures neutral with against the giants yep they enter their D. there to Brandon's do not have to be in the lineup yeah I don't think they will let's eat when I read yesterday was that well everybody's talkin second base a lot of the talk is first base so we're not a florist employer yeah exactly so we'll get more than that there was a huge trade the NBA and how it affects the wars and d'angelo Russell future we'll get into that we're not done talking forty Niners Roger Craig at the bottom of the hour ten thirty another disk which I did correct I'm baby or high needs I think it's time these thirty three right sign I assume that I don't know that we'll we'll talk to him about another disappointment Dennis brown is going to recap again with this a Superbowl Dennis and I got that interment I we were at the hard rock stadium to about two thirty of the.

"Parity based and so when you look at the Golden State Warriors you you feel like they don't have a ton of talent but they still have talent Steph is there obviously of the Angelo Russell is there now and he is Draymond green obviously they re signed Willie Cauley Stein he picked up Kevon Looney who I mentioned earlier he picked a really good minutes was a valuable player for this gold state warriors team so it's not like they're completely stripped of of anything in conjunction with that the Western Conference which we know is different and better across the board there's still some question marks the Lakers now have a big question mark the spurs Walker Aldridge's their key player in the market rose in him but he he's old and he's older now I don't think that the the Minnesota Timberwolves are quite ready Sacramento that mean they were really young they're exciting when you look at the players with the really young I know the jazz in the nuggets are going to be good but in the blazes as well but I don't think that I see the war years on the back end of the Western Conference playoffs I think they might be middle of the road but I can't see them fighting for the postseason especially after clay gets back and brings you know Klay Thompson type game but the warriors team so I'm gonna stay out of bounds of that I think they're gonna hold their own and let's not forget they have a great coach and they have a great history of pedigree with the that the that they have developed over the last five years five or six years thought about are you in all are yeah let's start in the Dodgers lost to the Marlins Cordy Ballenger became the second player in the majors this season to reach forty home runs the first being of course Mike trout the twenty four year old Ballenger is fourth in the National League in runs batted in while hitting three seventeen and obviously leading the league in homers this is Ballenger's third season his rookie year back in twenty seventeen villager Selinger finished with thirty nine homers and ninety seven RBI in just a hundred and thirty two games played at last year back that up with twenty five homers and seventy can't six you can't runs win batted in so inbound really is or the outbound really the seek only one aside they picked up from al Mike Horford trout obviously Cordy this Ballenger offseason is to the go best would player do well to be in so baseball they're imposing Lee big I wanna say but in they're bounds really the only so one badly in the Eastern Conference in a because lot I of the I teams love in the Western his game Conference have guys I who love were limited his to just ability rim protectors to and if you're you going know to play in the Western Conference.

"Half batting sixth at second base shortbread left catcher spot would carry a teeny today eight and the Darvish nine scrapping the catcher spot around the time being one through seven what do you think of as a light I think that it's I think it's their best line up and in a little bit shuffled around a little bit when when teachers comes back right right now a Jason Heyward has had a couple of tough games recently but he doubted to lead off spot well and he's had his best years of Cobb cast Yanis is just a flat out professional hitter and has given them a spark not just at the dish but I think they need a little bit of what he brings to their club house on a daily basis obviously Bryant reserve do what they do hobby is you know in another one of the house he's hot hot modes have has been a monster since coming back from triple a in short bursts isn't maybe not the guy that we were expecting him to be but he still on pace to hitch a thirty plus home runs and could drive guys in so I think one through seven I mean Kerry teams had a pretty solid year at the dish so I think this is the best line up I've seen them put together All Things Considered and I would expect the in app stays in this line up for the time being as long as he continues to hit the waves hitting he may bounce around from second base to one of the outfield spots but how do you take that bad out of the lineup we said Miller said this during the break as we were talking about the line of what you say you said it was the most logical yeah I think now that they have Castellanos he is as a two hander he just face now that Jason Heyward has accepted the role as your leadoff hitter he moved to center and what you have like one two three four five six in the when contraries gets back it'll be even it'll make even more sense but from just an old timey okay Roger line of try him out there every day and the guys get comfortable in their position and Kris Bryant has told us three he likes having the you know every day the routine of knowing where he's going to hit it's the most logical line of the joke it'll be completely help put the names in a hat Sheikh Ahmad Chalabi our good buddy B. C. guide at worse yeah I remember him telling me and please have somebody blood things I'm wrong on this ride saying it incorrectly please correct me but I remember him saying nobody comes up to the plate in a baseball game with nobody on and two outs more than that and the number two hitter in the game just the way at bats end up working out nobody does it more than the number two here that's why you see this trend Mike trout we're gonna bad him second Hey let's Cordy Ballenger the number two spot a couple times during the week that's why you're seeing that trend of guys shifting up into the number two spot a lot our best hitters in a lot of ways moving up to number two and Joe being as analytics driven as he has been and being as kind of I don't call me a trend setter that I think that's that's kinda over blowing it but being somebody who's willing to experiment based on what he's read what he's seen what he gets out from the analytical side I feel like he wants so badly to have that kind of mentality of let's put my best hitter in the two spot because the odds still are in favor of your best hitter being in that spot I think what the numbers may point to that you don't have a Mike trout right now they're hitting like high trap you don't have a Cody Ballenger who is hitting like Cody Ballenger's head over the course of the season so lets a judge and maybe try like what like what Miller said it's a little bit more logical let's see how this goes because it does in my eyes look like a line up that's built for a little bit of speed yeah a little bit of power in the middle and a little bit of balance throughout and it looks like a line of that should be pretty consistent on a day in and day out basis and and like you said I was in the country he's been reluctant to to be a student of logic as chimes and I don't say that necessarily is a bad thing but he has resisted running the same line up out there on a day in and day out basis and I'll be interested to see especially on this road trip with nine games left before they come home if there is some consistency with the wind up but recently you have your cub fan you have to finally love what they're doing it just feels right offensively more than more than it has over a a fairly decent size stretch in months seven seventeen runs in the sweep against the brewers right they still put up was a twenty runs in three games against over another pitching staff some great twelve runs last night about ten plus in back to back games that this is this is positive stuff yeah now you guys that are starting to play well get hot at the right time right now you got a string some of this together just because it you know there they've been a stop in and go product the entire season and obviously their their road record is I predicted five and five on this road trip just because I'm scarred by what they've done on the road there last ten zero leaves a lot to be desired to say light I understand one by the way sixty three fifty two you're fine in the NL central right now still in first place to look at the schedule it's coming up I I said I'm gonna be in Philly next week those are key games for both of these teams right now you go on the road at Pittsburgh San Francisco at home all this on San Francisco's look a little bit sharper in the second half of the season nationals are playing G. games you have to go to city field at the end of this month against arguably the hottest team in baseball right now the New York Mets will be a series a the nationals this weekend World Series four games at Milwaukee got to go to San Diego for four games and a ton a divisional games to close out the stretch in the final two weeks of the season that's how it's it's it's a handful there's no doubt about it my good friend John Whelan is beautiful Hey how are yeah body design is usually in a suit is working he must've been paroled from his job I just want to lean out this year's reaction I yeah I we'll find out this is why I've been reluctant to really get on board with with this team in terms of of how much traction they may have in the post season because they have lacked consistency and they have lacked continued success on the road so that's the one last piece to their top there puzzle well it is to find a way to be more consistently productive on the road and you know it's certainly a theme in the Cup season when Danny rocket uses it as motivation simpan a parity Saddam it is brand new any rocket A. P. one long time listener and a multiple time finalist in the wild on Sylvie what we call it the holiday themed song contest well Danny racket submits yearly and he also submits during the year his best Perry songs well this is what all to your when your favorite artists Willie Nelson in also not on the road again Danny rackets version please don't lose the next day this is all the rules the rocket actually had all the good notes there I mean he makes a very good points and and does it in a very chaining style I gosh it was it was it was an intense couple minutes I very much enjoy those very good rock every now and again delivers some radio gold for us what's wrong with baby bears and magicians there's nothing wrong with those if if every day of my life had some kind of interaction with a baby bear a magic trick I think I'd be a pretty good rate I think it's not bad that's right I don't know twenty two and thirty three when I compare that to forty one and nineteen at home they make incredible display it's got it's one of the biggest disparities of not the base the base well I believe at one point and I don't know if this is still the case I think it is I believe they have the worst road record in the division they're still eleven games under five hundred and one by one game they have the worst road right yeah Cincinnati's one game better on the road at twenty three thirty so I mean it's it's it's really a dilemma for them I I don't know if it'll change but if they are going to distance themselves from the rest of the National League central it's going to happen it's going to help they're gonna have to be better on the road for sure so we'll figure it out they get the Reds again tonight the the red for three more and they should take care of business there in a baseball seem to my my guys Cincinnati at home one more series like I said though and Milwaukee for seven you got Saint Louis for seven and a matter of a week and a half at the end of the season yeah I don't I'm not by in this this division I never had a haven't from the the start of this year the brewers can't pitch the cardinals have been hit and been hurt and and can hit the red you just did several years away in the prior to the pirates as I said yesterday they throw at you and they got a red as manager who gets mad at everyone for B. S. T. here's what concerns me about teams are in the playoff chase their plans a certain teams like of this ilk in this division at the end of the season when the forty man or the when the roster gets expanded a forty in September a lot of guys out there like we talk about pre season that's it that's essentially what he comes for like the pirates I did a lot of prospects a lot of younger guys were trying as hard as they can to make an impact their not going in there like Hey let's get dinner and let's hurry this came up and go go out you know to ever want to go out to its I'm gonna strike everybody out because I need a job next season I'm gonna get for him to be a free agent after this coming season so by the same token you may find line ups that you're facing that don't have a lot of experience and you may be able to take care of business because you are significantly better than that at least on paper you hope for and that's how you hope when you're a good team you should be playing like that that's the difference between the Yankees and red Sox from last year to this year Yankees are beat up everybody the red Sox can't beat Baltimore for some reason they can't beat the eighties for some right like you're supposed to beat up on the BET good teams beat up on the bad teams and I think what you're saying too and I think a lot of people would say we haven't seen enough of that it seems to me regardless of sport that's you know the first step towards a championship is beating the teams you're supposed to be and they just haven't done that what's the old adage everybody's gonna win fifty four everybody's gonna lose fifty four it's what you do in the other fifty for that or so yeah I think hawk Harrelson you say that all the good things I am doing he did it did so it you know what we'll see what happens with the cubs obviously still keeping our eye on on what the bears are doing as well I'd be interested also do here if there were other things that you saw last night that caught your eye your baby sitting next to Jim Miller Jim has some thoughts on who Mitchell to bisque he is and where he is he is look good in maybe looks not so good in training camp so far this year I had a chance to text with our producer the guy who does it will produce is in the truck and all of our games great gun Markel flew works on CBS during the day the regular season jadi Ashley Hey what do you think about the giants game next week so obviously Montgomery out there Hey let's keep track of the kicking battle yeah is that what you want to DO entre biscuit because he only played you know the one series and this is probably gonna be the game you would think based on what we saw last year were Mitch is going to get the most wraps this will this might be a maybe it'll be two series three series then you're done for the pre season you're like a play the last two games so if that ends up being the cases might be our best look his deep ball issues are well documented right he had a great season overall thirteen QB are the homes breeze for basically good competition when it's those two guys were up in the MVP award last year blood on balls thrown at ten or more yards yes we're not.

"Clone I want you know that the show had made me a better dad when my son wakes up from his natural I give them the William Casey all those kisses the let's go make this role and cracks me up my wife doesn't get it my son is too young to get it but I enjoyed every single time I do it nice nice job Tony understand one day you want to send one day he will thank you all right so with that said you are an unabashed baseball fan you love the game you always out how much fun are you having with change up and his own so much fun and I appreciate you having me on Logan Swaim friend of both of ours the creative genius if you come to me and said Hey I'm getting ready to open up a blockbuster video I still would have been on board just because I have that much confidence in him this is such a good idea you and I both know what Logan has done with Kyle brand and how good his direction was with good morning football he's doing the same kind of creative work with what we're doing at MLB network it is so much fun and it is as a baseball fan it's the kind of show you want to watch and be a part of I enjoyed every night good for you Tony Levin is joining us all right so last night the Dodgers beat the red Sox watching them go back trying to Sunday night they beat him Sunday nine twelve then they get a Philadelphia around dawn then they smashed the Philly sixty two on Monday night how impressed were you buy those two performances so impressed I think back to something the coach wooden used to say when success turn your head you faced failure you've talked about the Buffalo Bills we all have over the years it's remarkable treatment himself that it was more impressive with they did going to four straight super bowls and not winning them in staying hungry and getting back the fact that the Dodgers of lost two World Series and we know how tough it is in LA it's a great entertainment town but not the most rabid sports down the fact that Dave Roberts a fellow brewing had kept this team one tasking you could make the case this is their best regular season at one point last year there were ten games under five hundred and I was starting to press the panic button this year they are a juggernaut absolute Jagannath and going into Boston when the pitching match up toward the most favorable and really sticking it to the red Sox that was a huge statement he it's nearly impossible to get back after losing the World Series and yet they've done that a couple of times but the bull pen may be an issue as the example last night Kenley Jansen comes in to get the first out then he gives up a double Dennis single then another single in the Bryce Harper walks off the double you are a professional broadcaster but did I see you drop into the fetal position below your desk when that happened last night and I got to be honest with you one of the only reason that comfortable doing this is because I remember when the Dow Jones went to the NCAA tournament how all in you were I was like if the hall of Famer and you deserve to be a hall of Famer if the hall of Famer can be that passionate about his team that I can do it so why do I make no effort to hide my Dodger fan and it's because of that but I can say that I've enjoyed watching Kenley Jansen no one will ever be a better number seventy four in Los Angeles the Merlin Olsen we all understand that but last night after that collapse he said I should have been out there not to make excuses but I should have been out there I go back to the wisdom of the great Jim Herrick who said that Charles o'bannon after we had our practice at the king dome before the final four if you can't don't don't don't think so Kelly if you can't why don't play to that point Tony he got that first out by taking that shot off the ankle the went to David freeze at first base and then he blew the save and he was saying that he could not push off as he was pitching quote I'm not any excuses guy what I should have come out of the game Mister Tony when somebody starts a sense with I'm not in excuses guy or they not about to make an excuse that's the point you wanted this over the years one of my favorite things you do is you'll take postgame sound and do exactly what you just did which is make the point that this was totally avoidable he is the guy with the bonus yet he could wave that and said Hey skip Hey Dave Roberts doc come on out I can't keep going I get that we want to celebrate and give tremendous credit to the guys were mentally tough physically tough Willis reed and Curt Schilling and down through time but he was not affected and then as they're walking off he's limping off any wasn't limping off like Kirk Gibson do in the celebration of people around the bases in eighty eight it was just hard to watch wrong he has not been nearly as effective as you're in the regular season I don't have a great deal of confidence in him in that close a role which he walked off Tony Lee single Paul Pierce in fact you should on Paul Pierce it's just a give me a wheelchair man we'll be off this thing they're gonna have to probably a tape that angle brutal loss for them all right so Cody Bellinger homers again last night twenty left in my guest he leaves nationally get home runs runs PSE second batting average RBIs slugging percentages no doubt Mike trout is the best player in baseball but is Ballenger's starting to approach that level he sure seems like he is and he's on the unbelievable arc there was a gap in his swing that they were able to take advantage of the World Series and then last year obviously they were afraid of let the let the match ups I feel like this guy's a limit for him we see Mike trout in his brain is building there's no doubt I agree with you he is the best player in the world all sure this about Cordy Ballenger scouts said since Bo Jackson left the major leagues he was the best athlete anyone ever seen at this time Ballenger is the most complete athletes since that now Cody not gonna run through Brian Bosworth into all the amazing things both did but as a frame of comparison if you're mentioning the same but the that guy that's extraordinary in his ability defensively I feel like he is building on trout although trout is just so special Tony love main targets baseball with us Tony the giants have won twelve of fifteen how impressed with the way they've turned things around it is the most entertained I've been by anything from northern California since Vic in no cal made his call to you about the whole Tiger Woods cheating scandal and he called them cheetah that level of amazement because full credit to Bruce poaching it's not like will Clark is playing right they were struggling out of the gate it's not like they had an infusion of all these legendary giants from the past this isn't twenty ten twenty twelve twenty fourteen mad bomb is still there but a lot of those guys are gone this is a true representation of the significance and the impact that a manager can habits the farewell tour of Bruce spoke she I love his voice he could read a cereal box Rome and I would watch every press conference the D. hides the commanding presence I'm all in on Bruce coach and I love watching it I love boat which we love Boetsch this is a huge bruise both the house now for talk about managers and we're talking about northern California baseball talk by another guy that really big on Bob Melvin the ETS are eighteen five Tony the last month there thirty five and sixteen in the past two months therefore have games out of the AL west they're tied for second the wildcard spot what's it say about Bob Melvin they pretty much every single year you can count on this team to make a run like this that's the exact point last year was the two park turn around I looked up the date where they turned it on last year happen to be the birthday of the great to park California love queue with you know we all love it the fact that they do this every year and they do it at a fraction of the cost you mention the Philadelphia Phillies they spend half a billion dollars last summer real moved to obviously Bryce Harper the thirteen year deal friend a thirty million aids don't spend that kind of money and yet they're competitive why Brad Pitt oceans eleven Moneyball incredible with Billy Beane is done I admire the idea that you can be competitive on a year to year basis without shelling out a billion dollars and they keep doing it and one of the biggest reasons why is the guy you pointed out Bob Melvin sets the tone he is such a good manager twenty love men is a studio host with angel network and its own Tony before you go I had Daniel Jeremiah from NFL network on the program last hour he was talking about how pumped up the is about Fernando taxis junior how do you explain this guy hitting three thirty three fourteen bombs thirty three runs batted in in just fifty five games and more importantly at the age of twenty you can't run away from the DNA to borrow from the great Clark Kellogg this second generation obviously remember is Papa but the thing about copies junior in addition to the maturity beyond his years he throws according to stats cast harder than any shortstop in the big leagues he made a play against the Dodgers and often Barnes and you know I am a rabbit doctor span Lee Dodger blue he ranged was left towards the second base bag made the stop and throw the ball off of his knees and it was a strike to get bored it's the best player I've seen by a shortstop we think back to Derek Jeter knocking Smith all these great place where you're fading deep into the hole I've never seen anyone make this kind of like he's doing things we haven't seen before and as you point out he's twenty years old the sky is the limit if I'm a Padres brand I'm excited not about the distant future the near future this team is common they are really making progress and as a Dodgers fan a little anxious about it that six straight division crown hoping for a seventh but I feel like the Padres are closing thanks to talk these junior and many Machado wil Myers they've got some real talent Eric because where they spent the money in the right way and I think they're on the come and get a really good plan the good looking farm system and nothing ever lives up to the hype except RTC just smashing it Tony last thought before you go you rank the top five baseball video games of all time you edit MLB the show nineteen at number one tough to argue with that but then you went old school with RBI baseball and baseball stars at two and three laid out for me why RBI baseball I had a baseball stars Rome I'm not much of an athlete you know that you've seen the up close I'm not the most felt I'm not the most athletic so to me the player shapes on RBI baseball make this game seem accessible make the game seem playable baseball stars the players are straight up and down they'll look like Cordy Ballenger makes me not want to play RBI baseball the the ball bounce off of them and make that sound I feel much more comfortable and confident playing with guys on the screen that looks kind of like me does that make sense it does make sense of course it makes sense Tory loving my guest you can watch him co host change up its designs new daily MLB with brown show throughout the season and look for tonight at ten PM
