"I would I'll tell you this. The marlins are going to have a tough time playing here, my yeah. They're gonNA have a tough time, but he was soon as the national said No. other teams will follow and if I'm Miami, I'm looking for an ultra sites that I could bust for places. and I. This is one thing that I advocated long ago I. Thought the National American. League should have just been. Made I personally and I, said this from the beginning, and I said it on my Radio Sean Sirius Xm. We should have the Florida. CACTUS league the Grapefruit League and the cast asleep. And each team should take accountability within their within their spring training sites. And you play fifteen teams in Arizona fifteen in Florida you create a championship lead you create you create a league and both sides. Championship series in Texas. That way you. You would minimize the flying time. These I really personally believe what. On, an airplane was going to be an issue I agree this week one first weekend the marlins get onto flights. They got on a flight from Miami to Atlanta. Flight from Atlanta actually played the summer camp game after that which there was zero protocol anyway in Atlanta when it rained. Most of the players were in the dugout because there was no tarp above the. Protect the players, so they were on the Dugout, and then after they got a place to go to Philadelphia that's too many people breaking protocol from what it should be. There's no right or wrong. Answer here right now. Because of the day, this thing is kicking. Everybody's. And we're still trying to figure it out, but what we can do is try to make sure that. All the players and personnel are safe, and I just thought minimizing. Getting on a plane is the best way to go. I agree wholeheartedly It's funny. People are hitting me up on twitter. Be Like Yo man. You guys are going at it I'm like no bro. That's just how Latino people do it. I, let's talk. Let's. Let's talk real baseball here. How worried are you about Kershaw's injury history? This is now. Four back injuries the last five years or actually it's five injuries overall in the last seven years, and several of them have been back injuries. How worried are you about him in the long run here? I'm always been concerned about taking. CREIGHTON Kershaw with his back, ever something happened I remember last couple of years ago, I, took a lot of heat for not putting them in my top ten pitchers and the reason. I did it do that was because. It wasn't because of his style. It was because of his health. It was because of availability. Availability is the best. Player has. and. Being available that just downgrades Clayton Kershaw. Now this year we have twelve starts that starters could possibly make in a sixty game season. He's probably not going to even make six. Maybe you'll make. Maybe he'll make eight of those starts depending. He flew like headlong cough the other day. Hopefully he's better, but with the back you never know it feels great for ten days or could feel great until you wake up that morning and all of a sudden. You're not back out there, it's. It's tough right now to be able to be You know to to put myself in Clinton kershaw shoes, but I'll tell you this one healthy the guy's legit. The problem is that back is always going to be a concern and and you know this is. This is one part well where I feel for. I want you know there was a guy that I would love to play behind Clayton Kershaw? Not only when he's on the mound, but also in the dugout because he's always talking with everyone, you can see that there's a lot of energy there, and you want to follow that and and I hope for the dodgers. Say That Clinton Kershaw not that I'm a dodgers fan because I am not, but I would love to see Kershaw, WanNa Championship with an La dodger uniform because of what he's about to the game all these years on and off the field. Yeah no question about it. mookie Betts Cody bellinger in theory both MVP candidates. From a one two punch perspective as far as how you know how potent both guys could be like. What is the comparison your of having those two guys near the top of the order? I think I think it's phenomenal to have those two guys at the top of the order, but I'll tell you. Your best player. This year is going to be course feeder. Really. I. Yeah, he's he's. He's he's to me. He has the best chance to be the MVP of the fetal He has the best chance because everybody's going to be focused the same way. You are right now the same way everybody else's on. Mookie Betts, the way he runs, the basis away plays defense the way he can hit He does everything right. Cody bellinger does everything right of course eager is everybody's GonNa, forget and next thing you know he's GonNa. GonNa be the beneficiary of guys on base. He's going to produce I from what I've seen. He looked healthy. He looked stronger. This is the first year that he was able to take it off. Season Train and get ready for the baseball season. That's on the other Rehab for the baseball season. That's of course eager was the guy everybody talks about after two thousand fifteen when he ninety eight bachelor, so it hits three thirty seven, and then you know. Game went down after two thousand seventeen. Why because two thousand eighteen? He only played twenty six games. He got hurt he back last year, but I'm telling you. Of course Cedar is going to be a beast for these next two months, and he'll be a beast as long as he stays healthy. Because of the way he's able to drive the ball to right to left field like he always has one, he's healthy and the Perez.

"Was wrong. You put together a miraculous season. Good for you I apologize. I'm GONNA apologize to Dave Roberts Creighton Kershaw and the entire dodgers organization. Ken Rosenthal is now reporting. That sources have said that the red SOx use video replay playroom illegally in two thousand eighteen. This is now the second team that is snatched a world series victory away from us. Well I ripped the dodgers because of it. Well maybe you should rip them for not update near video equipment and not the same watch. uh-huh I'm trying to apologize getting mad now I realize no. We haven't blown the opportunities. They were stolen from us by fees in the night and in a day to think gee I would say I would apologize to the clippers. But I'm apologize to leaker the reason. I'm apologize Lakers. All fans because on December twenty fifth Christmas. Yes the Lakers dropped one. Dropped it to the clippers. Yes even though I screamed and hollered and pounded the table that the Lakers will be fine. Fine if in fact they take care of the Clippers Christmas Day. They didn't do it. So panic is now set in for me to some degree. Yes yeah twenty nine and seven handy any because beat them twice then a third tie comes up at.

"Like Oh. He didn't move that much just to all you need is a hair where do to just take that bit of a false step in then we're out never finishing the season fifty games over five hundred and going into the postseason with a okay you look at it. They want to one hundred six games. The cardinals and Milwaukee come in with ninety one eighty nine piece. The braves come in with ninety seven the nats with ninety three. I mean the Astros have one hundred seven the twins one hundred one and then you got the Yankees at one of three but the dodgers have the second most wins in baseball aw they've been to the world series two years in a row and when the playoffs open for them later in the week we gotta figure out whether they're gonNA play Milwaukee or the nationals I mean I don't know about you guys but I'm going to be holding my breath it from the jump because they feel vulnerable. You ran you. You rattled off all those numbers one. Oh six ninety one one zero seven blah blah playoffs star everybody. Everybody's is all the same and I think that is what is scary. Is that these teams that didn't have the same same amount of regular season success in the win total that you may be facing do in the postseason zero zero. I mean that's just what Lee is in. Now you talk about what type of pitching you're going to have a you or your guys. The Ace is going to be able to show up your bullpen going to be able to show up. Can you trust can Hanley to do what he needs to do with four five batters at the end of the game. Do we have enough cushion if he comes in and a three to pinch. What happens is you give up? Jack Does Z. Walker guy is is cutter high instead at the plate. Does it have enough stuff isn't is it a ninety two mile an hour. Is it a ninety eight like what what are we going to be Adila with when I think that's the known and that's the scary part because the dodgers have been in this situation twice within the last couple years in both times come away empty in the first cheer against Houston. It felt like they hadn't been the world series in thirty years so it's like all right. They're back and it felt like they had a chance to win it going down into that game seven. They're going to win it going into games. Last year they get back and they ran into a better team. They ran into a better team that smoked them and that's one of those things this year. It really is a World Series Championship. Robust the feeling going into it is more ominous than it was in those two previous years last year was let's see what happens and then the year before that was wow look at what just happened. This is is a all right now. Let's see it sounds like a black monitoring this the fact that we have home field advantage against every team in baseball except for Houston tells you just how good are bullpen is and I know that's a lot of what to believe because audit can concentrate on our blown saves and we have a lot of blown saves and we're GonNa talk about that but the reality is that Kenley Jansen is still really really good he still has he still has you. Don't get to this point the good at East. You don't get to this point without with our having a closer who can get you some saves. I'll meet you halfway house e. I don't he's not bad he's not he's the best bet they have and I'm I'm going. It's it's got these days I know but because they won one hundred six games. You'RE GONNA get some saves when your team is winning this off. The White Sox San Jose hasn't heard of of them it save number doesn't fill me with a ton of confidence. The fact that he's fearless does the fact that he's going to go out there and compete at a high level that does filming with Com- blown sakes exactly that's everybody says he everybody everybody may lose one or two here there but when you the dog and you to ace the Mariana very when he strode out the tunnel or the bullpens wrap you really didn't in trip. You like okay man. y'All ready to get up and go to parking lot 'cause I'm. I'm going to beat the traffic in Rivera. Look Rivera got beat in game seven against Arizona organs but it feels different Andrea. Here's the Rivera laws here. There can lose his here and there ah here's Kenley Kennedy's come in Kenley coming into this season. He's got a lot of pressure on him. Clayton Kershaw has exactly one vacant box locks on his hall of fame resume and that is winning a championship and not just winning a championship but being the best pitcher while winning a championship. I don't know we'll see it's GONNA be well at the end of the day so who's who's got more to deal with going into this is they're more on Kenley because we all coming into this like Hitler. Ken Lease the she. It doesn't see the need to be the best pitcher. He just doesn't need to be. The worst pitcher is that makes sense to you it does but I don't enough I buy it. I I think that if what Clayton Kershaw needs is for the dodgers to win the world series yes and for him to win a couple of games in the world series yes but he doesn't have to win. Anatomy Albany undefeated in twelve KS to go solo shots. No he just needs to do his part art unlike he did a couple of years ago. Clayton Kershaw is one of the best pitchers ever period Jeff's done done with that sentence. Clayton Kershaw is going to go right into the hall of Fame Clayton Kershaw Russia I would argue is the best dodger pitcher ever okay and they've had some really really good ones and and he's at the top of that list and that's why I think that the pressure sure on him going into this October is greater than any other player on that team including Kenley Jansen because Kenley Jansen while is a interesting candidate did it for the hall of fame. He's not the best pitcher in the history of that organization. He's not a deadlock cinch. The joy is Tom need. Fewer is not on the list that Clayton Kershaw Kershaw has all of these things and this would be a big fat empty spot in his resume whereas Kenley Jansen could not win the world series and it would be something and I'm sure you we we'd remember with Kershaw. It'd be yeah. Kershaw was put got never got one. That's why it's Kershaw. I think Kenley Jansen because Kenley only Janson is a guy that you can point to every single game and go you cost us the game. Creighton Kershaw could get rocked. Give a four solo shots be poured into six any and they can be down for two and you still have opportunities still win games if Kenley Jansen blows a safe eighth. It's a rap but you the ran that position and we four look as long as I have a show. I'M GONNA make sure people remember what happened. In Houston a couple years ago. Go to your point about will can lead to this or that or Yu Darvish it then it's like yeah but hold on Clayton. Kershaw had a chance to close it to twice in Clayton. Kershaw didn't start game seven wait until the game was at hand before they brought him. There's some stuff there. You know what this is like. This is like an keyshawn sports the footballs he played p. Play a quarterback can be like fifteen forty five now. He's not very good. The three touchdowns two two interceptions but what you remember is that the kicker missed the game when you feel not if fina forty summer it because what happens or not email a tweet center message damn every no matter it no matter what the hell happened for the first thirty plus some minutes if it gets down to a kicker missing the field go keyshawn and basically all all of us go damn kicker so when it comes to baseball damn closer so the cowboys the list of teams that lost their first game of the season yesterday the cowboys the rams the bills the lions and the eager lost on Thursday night their first loss of Do we feel differently about the cowboys this war now's the first good team they've played and they lost their three no against bad teams o-on against good ones well. Neither one had any offensive real output there. I think that we saw the cowboys always last three games adapt. Prescott obvious planned out of his mind for the most part he had the best passer rating in the NFL through the first three weeks of the season so we all felt like okay given one hundred fifteen million dollars. Let's go. Let's keep moving but now you watch what he's done here in the last last night in that game. I don't know man some of the decisions that she she was making. Just didn't make a whole lot of sense to me. Through one pass to at the end of the game was before the hill. Mary was a Hail Mary before the Hill Mary. There's all Hail L. Mary what are you doing. What did you see in so many questions that but at the end of the day he's still playing well. His team is three and one just had a bump in the role last night. LS Let's see what it is the next game they go out and play really quickly and I want to get back to the cowboys and just one second but I want loop this back to the rams just very very quickly because both the rams and the cowboys had a similar situation Jason last night. Both of them had a chance with the ball to go down entire win the game at the end Jared Goff had the ball. Dak Prescott had the ball. Who'd you feel better about going down and getting what they needed to get? Dung ooh because I have an answer and I don't like well based upon the way that they both were playing. I feel better about the rams than I did. You did because if nine hundred fit about that because he who he can run. He had a couple of runs so I was like oh he might be thrown but that do have thrown for like two hundred yards but I wasn't even is number. One Guy couldn't get open. They couldn't run and dad was making bad decisions at the very least at the very least we knew jared goff was was completely. A heck of a lot of passes just felt like in that moment that was going to grow up high did too and it's not look I'll be honest. I didn't feel like either. One of them was Patrick Mahomes Tom. Brady but if you're with jared goff the fourth interception of the day was right right in front of your mind you may have heard in the fourth what I'm saying is he might have thrown a Ford or a strip sack. which is what we got that? I it just I did not feel like we were getting ready to pump our fist and tie that game would have needed the two point conversion and with Dacca Mike you know what I know. He hasn't played while the night but he might do something here. I didn't feel that way Jason Witten on Stri. Jason got the boy fumble in anyhow to scramble long run call back that took off in one what was called back for hold into some light so I just felt like okay. He can bobby doerr with his legs. Get close enough to what something break open. I just knew this. Ramsden have any problem moving the ball and Dallas Dallas did that's the only reason I had a better chance so all right so back to the.

"Not going into your seventeen Koi? Leonard's not going into your seventeen. Kevin durant? Not going into your seventeen his situation is significantly different than those other different because he has a compliments. Yes. And and just he's been in a lot a lot longer. He has significant accomplishments, but to suggest a player shoot over fifty percent for the field. Twenty eight Nate is at the end of the live if we gonna play twenty five year, but if Creighton Kershaw gave you the pitchy to quit of that. We'll be saying young still not in. It's not a criticism of LeBron's performance. It's it's a simple fact that he's going into his seventeenth year. We're far closer to the end, and Bob, and we are in the middle. I'm very true that that part is true. But it can still go. But i'm. I'm viewing him as a Tom Brady thirty six euro as opposed to a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar forty-seven. I don't disagree with that in terms of his athletic prowess versus the other. He knows he still has a good basketball left by point being is that I agree with you in a sense of in terms of longevity yard, he's at the end of his loan lung jeopardy period ever, if you believe that LeBron James chose the Lakers for reasons beyond just basketball. There's no reason to believe it other players won't have that same rationale that they may want to do things that are based in Los Angeles that they may just want the lifestyle, and there is basketball involved because you've got the brawn James on the court to, but there are other factors that they are tracked it too. And there are other issues that these guys may not want to be a part of with LeBron kids. Remember, he had the comment about it's always toxic around not because of LeBron. But because of what comes with him. And then there's the Goodhew maybe quite Leonard hasn't said, I'm going here. But there's there's no case leaves. There are no indications that saying that the Lakers are at the front of the line for this guy or that guy where the roar for the place and executives and coaches that they're still kind of in this middle ground where they're waiting on something that the lottery is coming up in two weeks. Then there now, you know, what you're picking. Now, you're talking about scouting. Now. You none the draft is in June. These things I know that they're not tomorrow. But you would like if you're gonna have a head coach if you're going to have a general manager a team president these guys that are heavily involved. You would like to have them in the building for more than five minutes before you run free agency or a draft. I agree with that. Especially when it comes to scout of the young people your players in college, very clear out the scouts. Magic left all the scouts who were involved and. Say calc clues Utah. He's pretty damn good. They still here the ones who are looking at Josh heart saying, you know, what breed toughness to the team those scouts still here. But what is that process that you're talking about Travis that's not a process that only t president and GM hand, I agree. But what if head coaches get it Cal Cousy was going really good player? But I need a guy like the other guy not having. Spreadsheet out and say, well, we scouted this guy right here for about ten state. He's got this guy. Right here. We got this guy right here. I mean, I understand what you're saying. The coach money optimistic about the hall that they're gonna get this..

"And I think I think what's interesting is that of government Lanta, Mike Fulton evidence. He's good. He's good and clean Kershaw is good. But we we've entered a reality where if you're paying attention to what Clayton Kershaw has done last couple of seasons, and you are just kind of following that graph. He's not that guy anymore. And I think that baseball people know it, I think people that are numbers people know, he's not a bum. Like, I think we always get into this pickle where it's either your great or you suck. There's a lot of ground between those two. There's there's not Babe Ruth and the Minoza line. There's a lot of room in between those guys and Clayton Kershaw is going the wrong way. But he still comfortably near the top of the list, you this this disrespect. It is. This is your league is disrespectful corrosion everybody. All right. This is this is hi Mike Folkenflik weeks. What would you say to God bless you from Atlanta by Hanna Creighton Kershaw? That's the way the people look fell and fell filling once he was taking everyone's like. Wow, Jameson whiskey ahead of. James entirely on. Yeah. No, Pittsburgh the point. Is you got some people some funny names had Clayton Kershaw one of the easiest Maine's pronounce well in one of the things if you look his own teammate Walker. Buehler was kept that means he didn't didn't didn't even let them go to draft. So I mean, this is a time. They're changing going in opposite directions. Walker? Bueller is ascending and Clayton Kershaw is descending. But I tell you. What's disturbing though is that Walker? Bueller is the only name on this list of top twenty four from the dodgers. Washington has three guys represented lake. Make your. Yankees. Which are basically the baseball version of the Lakers. They have a couple of guys represent it. I'm a one to one doesn't even pitching April. And he's represented. I'm a little concerned by that. Guys are in tipping. The best news about all of this. And there is an update the Clinton Kershaw through a simulated game he's on track. He didn't like the depth of his curveball. Whatever the best is about this for the dodger fans, which I would include myself in is that they don't have to have ten outta ten Kershaw if they get seven and a half out of ten Kershaw that's enough. They don't need that. They don't they have the ten outta ten guy in bueller. They have a nine guy in area aureus, potentially. You've got review who's really good. You've got rich hill Suman keys of elbow. Who can be really good apparently not good enough to make Rogers. No, no. But they've got all of these guys. Ross stripling is not as good as Clayton Kershaw heating Kershaw has got to be better than Ross. But you've got all these guys can kind of get you through and win that division. So Clinton Kershaw doesn't have to be the man anymore. Our Commissioner personal question. Travis sure. Who's number three on this list? And who's number twenty four on this list? Are you looking to you have your own list in front of your eyes? I can get it up right here because you have Mike Fulton Neville twice on the list. He's both at number three twenty trust rise in his league's. Well, you know, we're here. Molar we need very common. Name might be too. By the way, this list does not include all the relief pitchers taken ahead of them as well. Few of those closers doesn't include editing because you've got the same name twice as well. As the source, Raj dot com, again, you know, you know, that's. Building man you now now where we're going to one job rush. Dodging to win the division. Division. They might wanna playoff series. And if they get their guys they can win the World Series. They're good enough. Good enough. They are good enough to win the World Series. They have been the last two years from your lips to the baseball. God's ears. Right. This list, though, throwing the list of way, Jon Gruden said that cars is quarterback. But then he kept talking here. We next..

He didn't come out with the bat that would have been rough for MRs baseball. Dr. How you doing tonight? Eric great to have you on the airwaves. I I know for you. There really is no off season November is is awards month in major league baseball tonight. We're going to unveil gold glove winners now a year ago here in Minnesota. That was good news. Bryan, dosier one one at second base. Byron Buxton in centerfield, and Joe Mauer came close at first base. But I don't think any twins are going to get gold tonight. No, unfortunately, not. But look there's always next year. How 'bout that those years doing this thing in LA and Loxton unfortunately at spent some time in the minor leagues. I mean, I was extremely surprised that that, but you know, it takes a while for some young talent to develop so hopefully, the young man will get together because we've got all the tools trust me on that one. But unfortunately, just not hitting major. But you never know we will see we will see definitely Dr your takeaways on the World Series at ended week ago in Los Angeles. The Red Sox win it in five games. Four to one. They were convincing from the get-go really spring training regular season postseason World Series. Some people are saying it might be one of the greatest single season teams in MLB history. Where do you stand on that? Well, I'm not going to call it one of the greatest single season teams of all time. I mean, they're they're plenty of teams that have, you know, look rock the boat and and done that I tell you what. What probably one of my favorite teams was from the sixty nine seventy and seventy one Orioles. I mean you look at that team. They were stacked they want two hundred nine games of the sixty nine hundred hundred eight and seventy and won the World Series. And you know, unfortunately, he got caught up in the Pittsburgh, New York. Both saw when the Mets took him for to one. And it's Burr took him in seven games, you know, four four games to three. But what that great series by the late? Great Roberto Clemente. But unfortunately, you know, like, I said, they they probably were one of the better teams. We'll see if this Red Sox team can sustain that. You know, if you look they started out great started out seventeen and to maintain that and one hundred and eight games we got to see what they do this coming season. If we're going to consider them to be one of the greatest of all time. So, you know, there are a lot of great teams out there, you know, but. There have been in the past you, and I have seen that. But like I said can they maintain it would will see? And certainly when you talk about greatest of all time doctor. It's purely subjective there, there's no real answer. Everybody has an opinion and it's tough to compare eras. Baseball's changed from decade to decade the decade. But but one team to me that doesn't get enough. Love three peat at seventy two seventy three seventy four the swing and as in Oakland. Reggie jackson. Billy north Sal Bando, catfish hunter, vita blue one of my favorite names of all time. I mean, you don't hear a lot of people talk. Oh that dynasty that the Oakland. A's had. No, you don't. And you know, they're they will next on my left. But you know, again, they were very consistent. They had a lot of personalities and all that Charlie. Oh. The owner. Let's have orange baseball's. Right. I'm telling you. Three. Walks in. He was an innovator. In fact, one of the things that Charlie Finley does not get credit for was that when free agency Wisconsin, he was like well every year, let's make them all free agents and that'll keep the market down. Nobody, you know. In fact, my. Millie Miller was hoping that didn't that didn't come to fruition. And it did. But you know, he had a really good idea as far as that was concerned. So we we got baseball is today. If is planned to come. You know, they've taken hold of that. Yeah. Charlie. Finley was one of the great marketers and promoters. I remember when the as came out with those colorful uniforms, he called it Kelly green Fort Knox gold and wedding gown, white those were the color schemes the as war. Exactly. Oh, yeah. You know, he was it was real big into the marketing and all that in fact, in fact in the early seventies. You know, he he was given three hundred dollars to players to grow mustache. And you know, the guys would like Charlie Finley. Heck, I'm growing. In fact, Rollie fingers still have this handled by. It's the signature now to see Rollie fingers without that handlebar moustache yet. But yeah to get them into dollars from Charlie if any back back in those days that was a big deal. So yeah. Everybody on that as team real mustache. We are heating up the hot stove where good friend, Dr baseball MLB officially into the off season free agency will pick up your soon. Dr there's some marquee names on the market Manny Machado, Bryce Harper. I don't think Brian dodgers value is what it used to be. But he's still out there. Adrian belts Ray. Now, the dodgers signed up Creighton Kershaw big picture. He's now no longer in the in the free agent hunt. But Dallas kaikal Charlie Morton C C, d do you think we're gonna see an off season this year like last season where the market shrunk? And a lot of big name guys sat there and the phone never rang or or the text never came in. Well, you never know again, it's tough to early on the call it at this point in time. But I I gotta I gotta be honest with you that Machado and and Bryce Harper gonna get quite a few offers now, whether we see those type of boxes come in for Tikal and yes money ground doll, folks. Like that that remains to be seen? But you know, it was it was really a tough market last year. But you know, look air Cosmo got a deal. Okay. So it white there weren't any contracts being given out. I mean, it was just, you know, people flow coming to the party how about that sound like an LA crowd. As far as free agency was concerned, you know coming coming late. Yeah. You see those brake lights beyond the left and right field. Pavilions dodgers about the seventh inning. Can I give some advice to the Minnesota Twins? It's always easy to spend somebody else's money in and you're out there in the emerald city of Seattle Knowlton cruises on the market. I've seen this guy come into target field. Whether it's with the Rangers or the Mariners or whoever and he'll hit him routinely upper deck left field. I think Nelson. Cruz would be a great fit here in Minnesota. Oh, no doubt. No doubt. I think he would be also. But we'll see what the brain trust of the twins wants to do this year. And it's gonna be a tough free agent market. It will I think it is except for, you know, a few select folks like I mentioned early on Machado when Harper, but we will see, but you know, again, you have to you know, I don't think Nellie Cruz is gonna get a five year deal, but look son for a couple of years. He would happen. You know, what's it gonna hurt? I mean, he's he's always performed. And I tell you what, you know, Baltimore hit it out apart, and they signed him for that one year eight million dollar deal, and he parlayed that into you know, big money in Seattle. And he's always done a nice job. So hey, take a shot. It's not gonna kill you. Yeah. He had thirty-seven teeters last season. Dr give us your impressions on the young skipper first manager born in the nineteen eighties. Rocco ball deli? Thirty seven years old hired by the twins to replace the hall of Famer Paul Molitor now, what was your reaction to that my reaction to that was no reaction? I I, you know, look, that's the way baseball's going getting guys that don't have any managerial experience. And and I'm sure he came cheaply so to speak, but you know, again, what you have to do is let it play out. I, you know, he's he's a solid baseball might play the game played it at a high level. And we'll see I think what you have to do is find out what type of communicator is. And you know, he's not that far removed from playing. So I think you'll be okay. You know, just gotta let it play out. Just like, Erin, boo. Okay. Yeah. Asked me with the feeble started before the season started. You know, how was he going to be? And I said, hey, you got gotta let it play out. You know, nice. Nice job. You know, what in one hundred games? But unfortunately, he couldn't pull pulled off the playoff. Yeah. But I think Rocco belt deli should be okay. Just let it play out. Let's find out what type of communicator is and he'll get the guy's playing behind him. Hey, look, if he gets by Braxton playing like he should be worth his weight and go. Miguel. So no, what does it say doctor about the Tampa Bay rays? I mean, first of all they're in the payroll division, the AL east. You've got the Yankees Red Sox Bluejays Orioles, their free spenders the razor. You know? They're playing money ball. If you will there at Tropicana field. It's along with the Oakland Coliseum. One of the worst ballparks in MLB, but they routinely win. You know, Joe Madden. Went to the cubs Friedman out to the dodgers now ball deli to Minnesota people go to Tampa to get some of their brain trust. Don't they? Oh, yeah. Definitely. And they've done a nice job. I mean, I I was surprised that they won ninety games last year. But, you know, look, you had you know, one of my tops Cy Young candidates Blake's. Now, he won twenty one games from last year. And I thought they would really gonna take when they traded Chris Archer, you know, one of their better ball players. But hey, they didn't they won ninety games. They were ten games. There were eighteen games first place when in ninety games imagine that but look the type of year that just spoke to the type of year the Red Sox fan. So. Yeah, you you've got a lot of talent down there. And it's going to be like that. It's always going to be one or two organizations out there that people are always gonna pick from that talent. Because they do so. Well, yeah, I mean, in fact, the chain bloom he was supposed to be the Mets GM, you know, he was in the running rial settled on Brody von widen. I I don't wanna I don't wanna tie are you doing? Okay again. You're you're in Seattle. Oh now, but you're a New York guy through and through you grew up in the shadow of the old Shay stadium cheering for the jets. And the metric was certainly a rough year for club met and club jet loses today down in the rain in Miami. They're still living on Super Bowl three aren't they they show and. Nelson lost a game quarterback by Brock Osweiler. I mean, remember Brock Osweiler was traded to to Cleveland, and in fact to take his contract they had to give up Denver had to give up the second round draft choice for them to take just think about that. Now. And they lose a game. It's not a good day for Dr baseball. That's where. No, well what what's Dr baseball think. You're you're kind of old school. Like, I am where are you on analytics sabermetrics, it's not going away. And I'm not saying it should entirely, but I think we've gone overboard where are you on this? I know I don't even consider it. I mean, you know, look, look if you can hit right catch throw Europe ballplayer. Okay. I don't need some, you know, some saber Matric tell me that this. No, no, no. I know from the game has not changed. I mean, look you need twenty seven out. Okay. The team that has the most runs at the end of the game wins. That's the only way, you know. The only thing this changes the way it's managed these days. Okay. That's the only thing. That's changed. The game has not changed one bit. You know, the fact of the matter if you wanna have a lefty specialist and all that other happy crap fine. Okay. But I'm nowhere with it. Look, you know, RBI's. Home runs when losses save that matters to me ERA that matters. Okay. So, you know, I'm nowhere with Dr baseball on the record two days before the election down with the launch angle down with exit velocity. Never did like pitch council vote for Dr baseball on Tuesday. Dr listen, we are almost out of time. We gotta go. Give me ten to fifteen seconds on Willie McCovey, Big Mac. We lost him huge loss, very huge loss. And I tell you this is what I want to leave you with you know, stretch McCovey. I mean, really he was he was the only one of the few ballplayers that they shifted for okay? It was the only one now. I mean, you shipped on every pitch it seems. But yeah, very very sad to lose stretch McCovey at this point. But, you know, hey, hopefully, it was peaceful, and he transitioned on thank you so much, Dr my pleasure. All right. He's the great Dr baseball, and we're just about out of time. This bonus half hour of a sports Sunday coming up it's going to be the timber wolves and the trailblazers from Portland we'll hand it off to John folksy for the pre-game show as we get set for NBA on WCTC. Oh. The Minnesota Timberwolves continue their five game west coast road.

Deciding to go somewhere else shoving him out the door. He's he's opting to go. See what else is out there and say good for you, man. Yeah. Yeah. But I don't think he is. I think the dodgers are going to do the legacy chain giving another twenty five million dollars for another two years. And that's what he's going to be the fourth guy at twelve twelve and a half million dollars a year year three and four in take that average it out the first two, and that's what it'll be you know, what's going to happen. It's going to be about eight forty five eight forty six on one side of town. You're gonna have the dodgers organization porna- glass of wine. Listen to Gladys Knight. And the pips on the underside of tile Creighton Kershaw do. During the pros and cons. Neither one wants to say the first goodbye, but it's gonna be nine o'clock and somebody's got to say something in hopefully, somebody in the dodger room with a glass of wine in their hand. Says goodbye, do you wanna be the guy the bought the worst years of his career when you didn't have to do it? Do you wanna be the guy that bought the ears? Who are he's just run out the string where look at look down the road. Look forty million. No, I wouldn't I you don't want it. I don't want it. I don't want it anymore. Say goodbye, I'm ready. He's ready. He's on his third glass of wine. Second by he's still very capable this year. And next year. I think he'll be capable majorly pitcher probably even better than that. You went to Boston, Katie beat them. I I I dare you to go to the American League. I dare you while listener base in his voice with I dare try it go try it. When you gotta get nine guys out. Night instead of seven, you know, try it, you know, the MVP of the World Series of got us bounce around for nineteen different teams. Right magical happen, but Kershaw bouncing around like that. No. But I'm saying magical things can happen. No question. No question. He could would have a rebirth. There's no question. That's said you dropping another quarter. T's time while look at me. All right. The Rams they were the only team to make a move yesterday launch receivers moved. And no one gave up a first round pick to get it done. I did that for you rush.

"I will say that your point on Richhill here ya and only say okay for the time being if this were Dave Roberts one mistake, then we'd move on. And we say, okay fine lucky. Maybe he should've maybe shouldn't maybe retail wanted to come out. Maybe we'll never know. But this was this was a just a parade of incompetence when it comes to managing your bullpen. It wasn't just one one decision. It was decisions in every game that were questionable. You're talking about a green Kalian. I'm talking about going all the way back to game one when he gave up the to Alex would you going to game the entire series was questionable really the way? What you gave up that foreign leader game. Whatever it was five or whatever it is not yesterday's. But the previous game came four four. Janson face. Is the absolute right move to do. I mean that guy. Kenley Jansen they said in Carlos we're not gonna go run around. Thanks for the call. Appreciate it. Kenley Jansen heads had said dodgers had said with are going to try their damnedest and not use them in back to back innings. And all of a sudden, you gotta put these pitching two innings every game and giving up a home run in just about all of those appearances. You gotta try some Pedro Pires strikes out to guys let's bring in Alex wood. It's this this. The math doesn't make sense in the moment you have to use something other than well. It's point six percent to my advantage to take this guy out brings that dude's thrown one hundred known can touch him leave him out there. We are easy. We're in a pickle pickle Dave Roberts contract. Is expired, basically. He's basically agent. If Creighton Kershaw ops out, he becomes a free agent. You have to ask yourself Clayton. Are you willing to reboot from the top? And by the top. I mean, you're ace in your manager. Are you looking to bring back one.

"That's not typically what you're going to hear what you're going to hear. When you go to them is. Hey, how are you? The answer is usually I'm. Oh. Conversation may be different though. Your debt may be late may be different. But you have to use your eyes. They'd given up one hit even just say, hey, keep an eye on me. One water. Not make me get. I have a question you played obviously for the Rancho raccoons back in the day. Now, part of the manager's job is not to communicate. To communicate to your players. Yes. Okay. Don't hang his answer. Manages coach's job. What are you talking about groovy sewn players if he thought he meant one thing when I kind of I think that's a little bit on a manager communicate to figure out what the hell saying? The first thing I'm gonna say is are your can you keep going? Yes. Where we are you done. Are you done? But before he could even say were richer was like, yeah. Well, he had the boss sticking out his hand. And he was like here I'm gonna give rich Ila pass. What the hell he's coming out. The pulling other by rarely he. Coat when it went out there to talk. Here's the problem. Here's the problem with this. This isn't an isolated incident where he's making crazy decision pitching had this. What's rich in particular? This one off moment where it's like, wait. Okay. He does. This was another one. This wasn't a twenty twenty hindsight being twenty twenty. This is what are you doing moment? Avs, abandoning and well Pedro bias is unavailable. What what what do you mean, these unavailable? We can burn his arm in the who cares. He's has to pitch tonight. Well, he pitched two anytime. I don't care get him up and go again, you every decision that this man is made thirty balls. How are you going to be tied every because when they put him in last night while he got jacked with Madsen with Kershaw with hill with Janssen keep bringing him in the eighth inning. It's like what how many times you need to see him coming in the eighth before you realize this is a bad plan come up with a new point met. And he keeps do let me let me be clear. Okay. I am not advocating for the return of Dave Roberts. Right. I'm not advocating that makes me feel a little better. But what I am saying is to say it was his decision making that cost us the World Series either of those World Series. I think is complete nonsense because at the end of the day will you blame new last year and keeping boy in seven Darvish seven-game Blaine. Yeah. Yeah. I stayed in. So that's one blame. Yes. But decision making his work thing and performance is another. I'm not going to apply all of the issues on decisions because when you trade for a guy because he's the missing piece, and he goes up and laze not one, but two eggs. That's not your fault. You're supposed to roll that guy out because you trade it for him when Creighton Kershaw your highest paid player, your as your greatest pitcher of generation goes out and not once not twice, but thrice in the World Series has got awful starts. That's not a half logically loyal to the wrong people. He he's coaches when they start to. He's loyal Alex would home run home run home run home run keeps sending out. There doesn't make any sense. He's loyal to Clayton Kershaw in at least Kershaw has a resume during the regular season. That makes sense. Take your pick. They think he's an idiot. And you do what you do and home run home run home run. Okay. I get it. He's kershaw. It's number twenty two has got the long hair. He's got the goofy wind up. I get it. I get it. Get it get him out of the damn game. He's given up home runs. And you're sitting there. He would he. Say one thing doesn't have anything to do with the other. That's not true because feta Kip Richhill in the game in able to one game. Maybe Kershaw approaches it differently. You know, I'm saying that pressure that pressure at three in one game five is different. When neil. Different too. It is different. But you said he would about what about when it was Neil nil in the first game. And he pitched what about that four zero..

"Did we ever have this conversation about any Pettit about Madison Bumgarner about Curt Schilling or Randy Johnson or the other pitchers of their generation who were lights out the guys that were just World Series locks, Clayton Kershaw key to your point. You said admitted go, you thought he going to be good, and it's not unreasonable. It'd be good. He has. He fooled me because he was up at four AM stretching. He was first moral. Part, you know he was up there getting loosened fake going relation. He was, you know, had the ball. I mean, I thought, okay, he gets it thought he got it. They bench me when I didn't bitch me. They didn't start me. Then I came out and game too, and I lit it up. Then I, you know. So I thought, okay, he's he knows that this this out there, yes. In the universe that he basically sucks doing playoffs. But you didn't think that the reason he underperforms at times because he doesn't know it's a big moment and he he knows what he's getting himself week. Now week was the first time you play in the playoffs. Okay. I got it. Second time plan, the playoffs star, Tom, I got four time. I got it. All of a sudden it's like, well, I did my part when we'd stealing win. Okay. But then still outlier about me being terrible in the poll season. So even though I know that I haven't done well and I. In one postseason game that made any sense. It hurts because they put me back out here in every tiny put me out there. I can't deliver. So even though I notice it's more now now at the end them our contract, everybody's watching me. They're now saying that I'm done. They wouldn't send was done three years ago, but people are starting to say, I'm done now. I may be the fourth best pitcher in the rotation now, so I'm going to show them. That is what I thought he would do. It is really interesting because remember back when the playoffs were beginning and national media was scratching their head, the collective head asking, why wouldn't you start your best pitcher winds Creighton Kershaw. And it was like going, see you guys need to make a phone call, let me or watch a game or two, because if you were just cognizant of what happened this season, you would have never made those statements. Why didn't bulish because he pitched he pitched it was kershaw's term or less only wanna jumping you kill it, you could. But then you're throwing everybody a little out of whack, black everything. The book I want to go back to some you said, why would you throw him out a way you can still start him onto then you're gonna put her shelter. The third starter. Then he's on, oh. Said he could go out there and just show you. I'm going to go out there and just show, here's here's the truth about this, and I don't. I'm not happy to have to point this out, but it's true that you are Clayton Kershaw can't just go out there and say, bleep it here. It comes the way that Walker bueller can the way that some of these other guys get in the way that Chris sale can do it at moments where you just say, bleep it here, it comes, Clayton Kershaw now has to be really, really good with his stuff. It's not just that here. It comes. Good luck. You can't hit it if he misses a spot if he misses if his his location isn't more or less perfect, and he's good enough that he can be perfect. Like we saw against Atlanta, like we saw against Milwaukee when he's perfect, it's good enough, but he doesn't have the the stuff, no Mardo them the margin of error is gone. So if he's not razor-sharp, he's going to get rabid up. And that's what happened to Trump and things. I noticed last night I brought it up to earlier speaking of stuff as you know, his fastball tops out, maybe ninety one Esau once or twice..

"I. Stumbled drunk through my own words there for a little bit. Eventually we found our way to the button that I should have just hit a long time ago. It happens. All right. Who is funnier to watch run same Kershaw or Tom Brady? See I'm not gonna I'm not gonna do Clayton Kershaw. I liked that. So Clayton Kershaw went out had a stellar night pitched seven innings gave up one run struck out nine unreal. Breaking ball. The highlight of the night, though, was I believe it was the week double in the seven that had Clayton Kershaw running around the bags and eventually getting us to home. But it got him from I two third which means we got to see this man open up. And unfortunately, it wasn't anything that really write home about. But it wasn't as bad as Tom Brady moved faster than Tom. It's just the stiff arm action. He runs like a white offensive linemen, which I would go because I was one of those in Iran, just like Creighton Kershaw. It was literally looking at a much skinnier mirror. Are you a little sad? We don't get to say the Peterman anymore. Yeah. Bad news yesterday. Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott. Let us know that Derek Anderson is going to be the start of this week.

"If there is healthiest the dodgers last night Richhill went out there pitched five innings. He struck out six guys. Pedro bias pitched one inning. He struck out two guys. Caleb Ferguson didn't get any Cantu. Migrated didn't get any, but the only combined to get two outs total. No strikeouts. Matt's in third, a strikeout kenley Jansen two innings to strike outs would one inning. One strikeout Floro one inning. Two strikeouts in early had a strikeout in one inning. In other words, these guys are going out there and they're lighting guys up. There lighten guys up. This is my issue with Kershaw, it's that he doesn't have the ability to light a guy up anymore. He's got a pitches way through it. And if he gets a little wobbly, help Grondahl in game one, then the whole thing kind of comes apart. He, I don't know if you can extend the guy or. Or have your guy in these big moments guy that needs everything to go right to have you have a moment. It's like a QB who needs great, Blackie great running game averagely half great. Hey. In order for him to execute anything slightly off. Annella son was like on, he's you're just a guy, the holy full. I know. So I mean, none of them are in the same category and conversation as Tom Brady and Rogers. MS reason, Creighton Kershaw is supposed to be the Tom Brady Ann Rogers for the dodgers, and he's been more like. What would you say? What is this for him? It's been more like Peyton Manning. Would you say? Yeah, that's that's a good comparison. What is this for his far as his year? This is his can tell you right now. This eleven th year in the league. Oh. Changed that chain. He's young. He just get started. Eleven eleven years in the league you you should be cooking. Travis was getting hit me what's sixteenth years. So you know, I was gonna say, well, he's older but now eleven years. You should still be cook. His older for pitcher and pitching years is still under I. It's not. It's not as birth certificate as much as it is this number. He's thrown twenty one hundred innings in his career and regular season, so you tack on. Let's see. So that's twenty one hundred plus another innings. Another one hundred thirty three. So he's thrown almost twenty three hundred innings in his career. I mean, that's that's. Yeah. And those miles from may April may through September. There's nobody that's been better at it ever. Nobody fill out a mouse could be from October one till whenever it ends. There's a lot of guys that. Band. So one, the funerals we always play so hard to say goodbye. Now that one, not that one, but when I go marching. Yeah, yeah, that when we might have to play that one one of them because. That's a lot. One Mississippi goes out if he goes out any pitches a gem and we win the game for me. Fan's perspective. I'm feeling better by him coming back. But if he goes out lazing egg, we got to, you know, he's been chased in the fourth. I'm not feeling good about him cut. It's not. It's not. It's not about him coming back Zoli on the contract. Yeah, it's about, but he's going to opt out. Might. What people don't seem to understand when they start talking about this opt-out stuff helped me. You can't opt out if you don't have any takers. Everybody's gonna feel the same way about you. If you go out there and you landing egg, nobody's going to be stupid enough to give you a hundred and something million dollars interject real fast with your name Marino because it wasn't the pool. Yes, yes. The was the expiration date on his career as a great player had passed. He still a good player, but the team was the time for him to have been the best player in the league which he was for the better part of ten years. It was long and every team in baseball knew it except for orange every team. Okay. I know you're angel. But, but they extended him too long if they would have given him a four year deal fine, but they gave him too much..

"Time to fire the questions new member of the Pete FOX system crew, one of our new producers his name is Alex. He is on the other side of the country, which I like because we get a whole nother perspective. I don't want somebody sitting in the same room right next to me. I want somebody way over there. I'm in LA. He's in Boston, Alex. How are you watching this game here? This is just this is unbelievable. Jimmy that the dodgers cannot hit a freaking fly ball. All they do is try to hit home runs. But when they needed a home run or at least a fly ball to score a run. They can't do it. It's unbelievable. Yeah. Thanks for having me on. It was awful to watch. If the bases loaded. No outs and opportunity to get back in the game to tidy game. At the very reason. They can get it done. You have to think they're not gonna have a chance like that for the rest of the game. I don't know. Yeah. I mean, they did get to the bullpen last night. But you that's a golden opportunity. It felt like the the brewers are gripping a little bit early in the show. I was saying I the only thing I can tell by watching this is that the dodgers do not feel relaxed and the brewers do right? But for once I finally felt like the brewers are gripping a little bit and the dodgers could not they couldn't make anything out of it. It's just ridiculous. All right. You've got some questions fire. When ready Gammar Jen did Dave Roberts make the right? Call starting Creighton Kershaw and game on ES. Yeah. I got into this already. I think it was the that was a jam for dodger fans and for their opportunities to win the game. I think it makes sense or not to me felt like this. It felt like I don't wanna hurt Clayton Kershaw feelings. He's our number one. He's been so good for us for so long. We have to start him in spite of the fact that. It's not a not a good call. Right. And I'm not saying he's done. But he's definitely not the same guy that he's been. He's not a guy that can go out there and shut you down even at his best. He struggled in the postseason. He's not as terrible as everyone makes him out to be. I do defend that quite frequently with my dodger hater friends, but to me I thought why not worked in the last series? Why not stick with what you did before? Start reunion game. Wanna let her shot star game two. Does that seem crazy? No, I think that would have been the the way to go. You haven't met that that's been working for you. Then why not stick to it? I do think Kershaw is there ace whether he hits like it or not figurehead rotation. So I understand Dave Roberts Wanda stick. Leeann. That's it. You need a guy like that to perform to have a chance of winning the series or making this writer will get deeper. So that he didn't do well yesterday. The fact that up today they didn't get they had a decent game starting pitching offensively. It's not voting for the dodgers. Yeah. I look at I look at Kershaw, and I go. Yeah. He's not as bad as the numbers would indicate or as the casual fan would would you know, criticize him for. But he's also, you know, he's hard to defend as a dodger fan. It's hard to defend him and say, yo go wrong. He does step in at quite frequently and the more important the game is the higher the leverage the more. He seems to falter. So this is just the NFL and it was just game one. It's far from over. Even if the dodgers lose today far from over long way to go, but I still feel like. You got to take the pressure off a Kershaw. That's the biggest thing just take the pressure off. And let him start game to starting game. One is is a lot of pressure. You know, and everyone thinks oh you lose game on the series is over it's far from true. But the fact is that they would have been better suited. I think how they started review there and let Kershaw star game. And then you got Walker bueller for game three back in L A where he's way better than on the road. So I don't know. We'll see how it goes. It's not real. We're still we've got a couple of innings left in this one. So what's next? All right, Jim or Jimmy. Would it be your jammer temp to say that meat Butler is worth all the fuss? This given the latest developments of him having some tension between our himself in the. Yeah. I would say that's a gem. I don't quite get it. I don't understand. Why people are like this is the top story across the board for a few days this week. And I get that people are in the drama when there's coaches arguing with players and the players are yelling at the GM and not showing up for practice and saying you f the need me to win. You can't win without me. But he wants out has yesterday. He didn't show up for their last preseason game. I look at that. And I know tips knows him right because he coached him in Chicago. I look at it. And I say, I don't think you can fix this thing. And I don't know that you need to Jimmy Butler. I really Jimmy Butler. I mean, I'm not saying he's terrible. But he's far from being the cornerstone of an organization that could take a run at the warriors or any team. Lebron is on or the Celtics. I don't think Jimmy Butler puts you in that. Category. I think Jimmy Butler needs to be on a team that already has that guy. You put Jimmy Butler on the Celtics. Now, you got something you put Jimmy Butler with LeBron in LA. Now, you got something you put Jimmy Butler with the Spurs right and demar Rosen. Now, you got something. But Jimmy Butler and Karl Anthony towns, and I'm a Kentucky guy. Karl Anthony towns is fine. But they're not gonna win anything. Especially not in the west. Am I off base? Do you agree or do you disagree? Yeah. I think Jimmy you're third best player in our championship. Caliber team cannot be your very best player on the championship caliber team. Or like like they want to be in Minnesota. The the reality is regardless if you stays or if he goes, they're not gonna be contending for the NBA finals. And when you have young talent lake Andrew Wiggins and Karl Anthony towns, your they should be your priority. I think you have a little bit of a bias with a guy like. Boo. Coach Tim in Chicago. And and really wants to keep him in Minnesota. I would get rid of him. If I were I were to the timber wolves. I think they had a shot at doing that with the heat Tilton kids blue that. But yeah, I think it'd be probably definitely not worth the sauce. Yeah. I look at it. And I say, you know, obviously, you're gonna want him to want to be there. They don't want to be there. Then you got too much uncertainty in the boats, not, you know, floating down the stream the same way. And everyone's not rowing the same way rather. And if he's not into it, then it just doesn't seem to make any sense. You want him to want to be there or you want a bunch of guys that are all trying to put something together from the bottom up from the ground up. And if you add in a guy like Jimmy Butler, he needs to wanna be a part of it. If he doesn't want to be a part of it. Then I audio smell no time for this. I don't think you're that good try and crowbar you into any lineup. It just doesn't make any sense to me. All right. We got time for one more. All right. Jerry jam or Jan calls. Football would be much better and way, more interesting. It's all damn it. Wasn't as good as they currently are. Oh, total jam. I was watching that frigging Ohio State game today against Minnesota and Ohio State was on the ropes for better part of three quarters. Minnesota just kept making mistakes, not converting on turnovers or fourth-down stoppages. They get into the red zone. They wouldn't score. Then they get the ball back again. And and after holding Alabama or Ohio State to feel what they get the ball back and then committed turnover I mean, Ohio State was way beatable today as obviously Georgia's gonna lose it looks to me like so Georgia's beatable the top four are album way up here. And then a distant second is everybody else. Second. Third fourth. So if Alabama was just I mean, I just I pray that somebody beats Alabama this year. It doesn't seem likely just looking at their schedule and looking at how good they are. Right. You look at Alabama. And you're like there's just so good offense defensively, especially on the defensive side of the ball. But they're just head and shoulders better than everyone else. It kind of ruins the rest of it for me because everyone else is just competing for second. Because there are all the not that's still pretty interesting. I mean, Georgia losing today to LSU everyone loves Georgia in that game. LSU a team that lost Florida last week Florida have their hands full today with Vanderbilt ended up winning. I mean, the point is that there are seemingly a lot of parody a lot of hey, it's kind of up in the air across the board with these other teams in the top twenty five even in the top ten. So I think Alabama was. Just a little bit more regular, they weren't such dominance stalwart. I think it would make the whole thing. Oh, a whole lot more interesting. Do you find that it takes away some of your interests? And the fact that at the end of it it's like Alabama's gonna win. Anyway, doesn't it? Take away the excitement. A little bit. I do like the story though. It's been they've been such a powerhouse in a lot of people hate Nick Sabin. But you gotta give them credit for what he's built up down there. I think it's a it's a good storyline in every year. They're always the favorites. And and you said it outside of that number one team in college football. You do have a lot of parrot you ever wanted to see boozing you have a lot of Tennessee losing especially late in the season here. I like it. I think it adds to the drama, and it's it's it's fun to watch a team that kind of has that target on their back because it's it's it's where everyone else aims, Alex. Great debut. I just have a question. Do people. Do your buddies. Call you lebeau since your last name is liebowitz. Yeah. Most people don't. I was just thinking we're gonna call you lebeau as I mean. I I've never I've never I don't know anybody who has that nickname, and I like that nickname. So maybe we'll we'll switch to that next week. We'll see how it goes. Every single person my family every valid by family. We're all lever. All right. Very good. Very good. Appreciate about enjoy. The rest of the day. We'll talk to you next week. Yep. That's our new associate producer, Alex liebowitz with jammer jammer. We'll take a break come back wrap the hour. We'll talk a little bit more about this this baseball series going on here.

"A lot i think he must be heard i actually wonder whether yeah it's just the plate discipline is completely eroded as he said he's striking out a lot he's also not walking much he's also swinging a lot more pitches than he should be and the other thing too is when he's making contact he's getting on top of the ball but a major change from candelaria we saw at the beginning of the year so given these two choices not hundred psi or am i out i'm out but in a way i'm okay if he finishes up like this because he'll be on my sleeper for next year i'm gonna project to seventyfive with twenty five home runs next year out of the sky i like him i think there's a nice feature here then maybe that doesn't make them in guy taking the top twenty rounds but we all play in deep leagues candelaria was a guy i think you should invest in and if you're out of for this season and you're an identity format go get him because i think the future's really bright for him i wanna throw a individual player compu for next year you'd rather build around kendall reo or christian villanueva definitely kendall art wave is not a regular player and as a padres padre parties were platooning with cory spangenberg think about that for me i know there's no way villanova is a regular player i mean if you gave him five hundred bath what he had thirty home runs maybe out of san diego but look at them that way older candelaria younger he's a switch hitter no definitely can i that's not even close to account for me i want to see if i can find a third baseman comp i'm probably i'm trying to throw cold water on this and that is that i'm not sure that he has the power that you're projecting here that's twenty home runs okay i mean i think he could do that i think that that could be shooting high for next year and struble cabrera these hitting eighty with sixteen home runs right all right i just his not anything special that guy you're kind of happy to have in the back end your mix league roster but you don't like spend any sort of draft capital the ghetto solarte's same thing right well maybe i'm overreacting so i mean they're useful i mean i'm not i don't i don't wanna make it like that he's that there isn't a role for him for next year it's just i what's the ceiling for him i i'm not so sure all right that's fair what's next michael thinks it's about time for a challenge trade bryce harper creighton kershaw in a redraft league he's willing to deal harper for kershaw would you make that move it depends entirely on need i see no reason why kershaw would not pitch well for the final two months i see reason why he might miss time obviously but he's having another great year k caper inning now walking anybody era and whip or all good and they're all like every all the numbers look i mean k rates down a little bit but everything i'm looking at kershaw tells me he's still fantastic he's just i can't count on him to make five starts every month harper look and please never again tell me about contract your guys bryce harper is in a contract year he's bank to thirteen machado's stepping up in his contract years even stealing some bases and you know demanding he plays earn position which is ridiculous but mean harper could end up hitting forty home runs you can have ten homerun month whenever he wants taking a ton of walks i just he's batting one eighty four in the past month and there's no sign of that stopping none is he an and by the way he might be the most overrated player and fantasy is it thirty home runs once in his career this is seventh year never knocked in one hundred runs a career to seventy eight hitter who's hit thirty home runs once and we had him ranked in our top ten which i think embarrassing now i understand that the upside fantastic could be a triple crown winner it bryce harper one of these years i've been thinking about stephen strasburg for years to it bryce.
