Isaiah Briana and James McCann both homered for the Sox. Lucas Giolito seven innings two runs four hits. He walked five but struck out nine. Tough loss.

Wait till you see the bottles inside. So that's my girlfriend away. She did it. She had the little bottles and what's great is she's a bartender, so she had them s O. You know, there's certain like the mixer and then the actual alcohol, too. So it was kind of fun. Once it all came out. You could You know, find a pair that goes with and then shall said candy in there to you know, Do you do the shot? I guess they all fall out at once. You know. So do people just pound the bottles one after. I mean, it has everything in it. It's got like fireball and Oh, yeah. She had some great stuff inside. Well, what we ended up doing because the drinks were already flowing and cheese. You know who's making live drinks there and her friends were who are awesome at, you know, Mixologist, So I just save mine for Lee. Could you put it in your tuck him in there for safekeeping, and then you know you're forgetting her there. You forget. They're in there and you're at work. And you're like, I swear I don't problem I was at a party. Yeah. You gotta remember to take those out, though. That could be dangerous. Yeah, that's true. Full of man hate Lex. We we only because we talked about it. You wanted to give us the low down on Amazon and what's happening with that Just because we didn't get to it last segment, but I thought we should just follow through on that one. Yeah, they're pretty much taking over the world for a lot of reasons, but it looks like they might be taking over the empty spots at malls. Where J. C. Penney and seers used to be They want to turn them into giant fulfillment Center so they could be even faster at what they D'oh. Ah which, you know, I think Might make sense. It doesn't bring people to the mall. But it does alleviate those huge space. Like what do you do? What kind of company Khun move into something of that size a lot of malls or maybe kind of divvying. The little space is up and, you know, making smaller shops. But It seems like that might be a good solution for them, but it looks like that might be what's happening. And when we've seen these, you know that all the commercial real estate Just sitting empty and the stores are closing. And so here's at least a way for it to be repurposed in some way. People might not be thrilled that it's more Amazon distribution centers. But let's be honest. We're all buying stuff online. I mean, and there there will be jobs. How do you think the rest of the mall shops feel about that? Because I'm guessing there's going to be a lot of employees in there. Wouldn't that be a boost for your business? If you're in a quiet mall? All of a sudden, there's all the you know there's 900 employees and they're walking the mall buying your stuff before and after the shit, Yeah, yeah, yeah, that that could work out. I feel actually, I look for the negative, but I'm seeing positive here. I better back out of this country. Very uncomfortable Ground for me. I think the Nef IATA put you in a good mood. I think it did. You guys started mentioning Fireball, and I don't drink whiskey, but Boy, I I really enjoy a, you know. 34 maybe 67 glasses of fireball stuff. Highballs. Just guzzle down kitchen glasses. They usually drink milk out of like solo cups. Yeah, I blame my sister for that. She said, Shut up and drink this. So I did and turns out I liked it. There's something about fireball. You're right. That's just Yeah. Anyway, back to the hall. But you're right. I think the customers there that will bring a ton of people there. I was thinking more in terms of attracting Customers other than you know people who work in the mall but that that would be an influx. And right now it's probably better than empty spaces. It's just absolutely we'll see what we see how it plays out. I mean, Penny Sears their bankrupt. I feel like J. C Penny has been going out of business for, like, 100 years. Oh, yeah, they come back. Oh, my gosh. You remember that they did collaboration with Ellen. Was his home, man. Now, nowadays, that seems a little right. But yeah, they're always kind of on the brink, and they come back and say, though I haven't bought anything at pennies in Forever. I mean, I can't. I can't. I just feel like they've been in trouble for so long. I don't mean it has to be hard to hang on. But they do have so many stores. I mean, think about everything. There's a There's a penny's in every store. I mean, in every community that I have been to, I think across this country. On, so I feel like they're everywhere. And so they just have so many locations that they've just been closing them forever and ever. It seems like we still have some independently owned Sears stores, though, Do we not, I think we D'oh. Oh, I'm not sure. But but the main store's air gone. I know it wasn't even a year ago that I ran over to Wisconsin to an independent Sears store and bought a nice big tool chest. Yeah, and I and I was told by them that they're going to remain open. No matter what I think there's a There's a change. You know, there's a change happening and how we're more spending and shopping. I mean, and look at the nip yada. I'm sure it's flying off the shelves and those air online purchases for that thing, you know? Ah, Andi, I think people are changing their buying habits not just because of the pandemic, but maybe a little bit in general on DH. There's that, And then there's the very intentional support of the local businesses, which you know the small and independently owned local businesses that you know we were so important to keep going.

My talk one of 71 When we come back, we're gonna have a little bit of a conversation about a book that I'm reading right now that I think I hope you'll find fascinating.

"But. That's actually not the end of the story. So you remember I told you he wanted to write a great baseball song and you know arguably he wrote to. Do Remember his other big goal wanted to have a song that he wrote himself that he performed. That would be a hit exactly exactly so that song go cubs go was used by Wgn for a few years, but then it kind of got forgotten. You were talking about the cubs playing at the end of every game. That's a relatively recent tradition that started in two thousand seven, which was also a big year for the cubs, somebody at the cubs organization said Hey remember that old song from the Eighties Steve Goodman all that. Why don't we just that off and play it after a home game win, we'll see if people sing along and they dance. They sing along. It caught on became this big tradition at Wrigley field also caught on in the bars. You know they were people would sing along. Then in two thousand sixteen. Here's the along. This is going to be a top quite. Go cubs. Go got a lot of attention. Murray and a couple of become sang the song and Saturday night live. The cast of Hamilton in Chicago, saying it and Hundreds of thousands of people were seeing it in grant park at the victory parade. There's something like two million streams on spotify and it went up on the billboard, charts. Wow and that's like what thirty years later. He finally gets a hit that he sang. Yeah, he did. He finally got that hit. and Steve Goodman fans would say it's kind of ironic, because go cubs, go is not what they would consider to one of his best songs. But clay heels and others say goodman would have appreciated the situation know namely his favorite team that he had rooted for his entire life finally winning the world series like the fact that that's what drove go cubs go to the charts. Steve of loved that. And Yeah, it's sad that he didn't live to see it, but if you think about it, it's also kind of the perfect story for this song because you know for most of Steve's life, the notion that the cubs are GonNa Win Baseball. Season's here again. You know it's time to start a whole new day. All of these lines are about optimism in spite of all the available evidence and. I think that resonates deeply with Chicago cubs fans. and I think that. Sorry I'm getting emotional I think it's also even though it's pretty simple song, it is also. Kind of essence of Steve Goodman to. and I think you know in that clip. I played for you and you see all those people singing the song full-throatedly and they've got signs that say this is for GRANDPA. Think Steve Tapped into that. Yeah! No, I think you're right. I mean I think there is that dream that somehow succeed some day and people not giving up on that Dream I. DO think it's real and I think it some kind of like the spirit of the city a little bit. You know where Chicago Were Not New York, but we're going to matter to I. DO think it's a part of the spirit of the city itself. That's captured in that idea. So maybe you could see why. It might be a little bit difficult for the cubs to think about rewriting or reforming the song. Okay Yeah I see why now it's not such a simple thing. It's like it's like ripping pages out of secret text. Metaphorically we're talking baseball, not religion here, but for some people. There's not much of a distinction. Okay. So what are the cups doing? Well. They have said they're going to continue the tradition to play. Go cubs go after home victories, and they've been doing that at exhibition games. But according to Klay Heels, Steve Biographer. It doesn't actually matter what comes to the song is going to survive any ownership. Change any radio change because the fans. mean go cubs, go I. Think is forever..

"cubs" Discussed on Curious City

"Okay Alex I'd like to start off with some sound. Go cubs go? Okay Jesse a here it. So You can pause it. Pause it. Do you recognize the sound? Yes, that is the song they sing. It cubs, games and I believe you have to win, but I'm not a hundred percent on that, but sung with cubs games. Yep, you're absolutely right. It's go cubs go, and they play it over the public address system at Wrigley Field, if the cubs win a home game, so it's this. Chicago tradition, but there's actually a little bit of a dilemma. And the future of this song may be a little bit uncertain. Okay, but before we get to that. I think we should introduce ourselves. I'm Alexandra Solomon. I'm the editor here at Curiousity, I'm just dukes, curiousity audio producer emeritus, if I can say that I don't like that part book, okay, what is this dilemma? Well? It was actually spotted by our question asker It came from Nick Brunner and he noticed something in the third verse of the Song. which many people don't even know, but it goes? Alex! Did you catch the problem? Yeah I know this because I know that wgn doesn't broadcast the baseball games anymore. Yeah, you got it exactly. The problematic line is you can catch it all on Wgn, which is not true anymore, and in fact, the cubs haven't been on wgn radio for a few years now, but Wgn TV has been there broadcast home for decades, and that is no longer true as of this year, because the cubs are launching their own network Marquis sports network, and you know the cubs probably don't want to promote a rival broadcaster in their own stadium, so or question asker wanted to know. What are the cubs GonNa do about that? Get, a Superfan, write a new lyric, so you could get a superfan maybe to write another song or rewrite the song, but you could not get the original songwriter to rewrite it. In fact if they were to get someone else to rewrite that verse or something like that that could be considered pretty disrespectful, or maybe even sacrilegious with regard to the original song writer. WHO IS Steve Goodman? So years historic. Steve. Goodman was born in nineteen, forty eight grew up on the north side of Chicago and his biographer clay ill says he was cubs fan from beginning. His Dad would take him to Wrigley. He would skip school to go. See the cubs, and you've got to understand this time when the cubs were not drawing very many people. They never won. This was peak, lovable losers, cubs, and in fact I just looked this up He was born in Nineteen, forty eight. The cubs did not have a winning season until nineteen sixty three, so until he was fifteen years old, he never saw him. Have a winning season, yeah! Steve started getting into music when he was pretty young. He saying in the choir at his temple he was a boy soprano. He played guitar and kind of high school full. been you never in Highschool? Never saw him without a guitar went off to college, but didn't last very long. Because he didn't like to go to class, he would rather play guitar. And right around this time he's twenty years old. He is not feeling very well. He goes to the hospital and he is diagnosed at age twenty with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Oh Gosh on. Am I gonNa like this story Jesse I hope it has its ups and downs Yeah, that is a very scary diagnosis. The prognosis for people who got diagnosed back then was maybe six months. You know there wasn't really an effective treatment. And he's so young. Yeah, yeah, he's He's twenty. In really like friends and family thought he was probably going to die. But they were just starting to develop these new cancer treatments, and he signed up for an experimental treatment, and after several months of that. The cancer actually goes into a remission in the summer of nineteen, sixty nine, and that's really when he decides. He's done with college in. He's just going to focus on being a fulltime folk musician. You know we all get these little. Signals in our life, it's sort of like being at a light in the light either turns rhetoric turns green. Wait for the light sometimes. Pretty quickly, he could make a living just playing songs, singing songs in a handful of bars around Chicago. There were all these clubs and they were really just Kinda like bars like places. Where you know. Maybe you could get fifty sixty seventy chairs. You know there is the url of Old Town which became his home our. Steve Good. Some performers would just get up inside their songs. Steve would do that. He was a virtuoso guitar player, but he also was a storyteller. Song after I walked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety five. Just got back. He talked about the cubs a lot, and how terribly they were doing that was kind of a theme. Because now they haven't wondering my lifetime and I'm not that young. He just charmed everybody. Okay so by the early one thousand nine hundred eighty S. Steve is making his living as A. Folksinger as a musician, and he's pretty successful. You know he has a record deal. Certainly has the respect of his peers and he's lived. You know ten years longer than the original doctors have predicted. You know. He's in his early thirties, but he still has two goals. There are still things that are alluding him and one is that he's never had a hit song on the charts where he's the performer in the singer. Other people have recorded songs. He wrote and had hits You know maybe most notably. Are Low got three the son of Woody Guthrie at a number four easy listening hit with the city of New Orleans. The country singer David Allan KKOB had a country hit with. You never even called me by my name even. It kind of makes fun of country, but it made it onto the country music charts well, friend of mine named Steve. Goodman wrote that saw. And he told me it was the perfect. Song. But he was never the singer on those hits up to that point and you know it's clear that he may have been a little frustrated about that. Sure I mean I. Get fat. So what? Why didn't he have hit well? There are a lot of possible reasons, but his biographer heels has a theory. And this is kind of a famous story. Back in one thousand nine hundred seventy s, he was discovered by the country singer Kris Kristofferson Goodman was being handed the brass ring. You know. Would you like to come to New York to start a recording contract? Most anybody in that circumstance which say gee. Yes, thank you, thank you, but the first thing out of Goodman's mouth was. If you think I'm good. You got to hear my friend John Prime. He this instinct towards generosity, and I'm not sure that always worked in his favor. That kind of generosity.

Mark Clark: Warbirds Marketing Specialist

"Courtesy. Aircraft is well known for marketing former military aircraft among other aircraft. How many such transactions take place on average annually in? How many have you done over the course of history? Oh Gosh over the course of history probably over three thousand transactions. and obviously we're not the only one selling these kinds of airplanes, a lot of the owners consent of their own airplanes, but a lot of time they like to turn it over to us because we're kind of familiar with the transactional side of. Inspections title searches checkouts insurance, you know all of those little things that go towards making a successful transaction for the buyer and the seller so. Having done it before, you know, it's a pretty emotional thing when you sell one, and it's an emotional thing when you buy one I mean there's so much history personality wrapped up in the airplanes and the owners. Sometimes it takes a middleman to just wade through of the emotions on both sides, and my understanding is. You've sold the same airplane several times is. Oh Yeah I've got one thing I've sold four times, and that was actually the first Mustang. Average flu sold that particular point four times remains flying, and in grave condition actually here in Illinois today, and I've got a number of t sixes and t twenty eight that sold multiple times. Of the thousands of airplanes you sold. Is there one type model? That's more coveted more prized. Well I think it comes down to beauty is in the eye of the older I particularly love the North American eighty six. That was my first Warburg that I ever flew. Though. Maybe it's kind of like your first girlfriend. There's always something kind of special, but I think the t six is a relatively reasonable airplane to purchase. It's a reasonable airplane to fly. It's very nice Daljit with six hundred horsepower radio edge, and and of course all of the World War Two high looks got some time whether they were fighter or bomber pilots so historically. Historically it has a lot of significance for the united. States as well as probably thirty five countries around the world that operate those airplanes, the last air force to operate those airplanes on a regular basis was the South African Air Force and they were operating the airplanes up until the early nineties about sixty of those airplanes actually came to the united. States and are now in the civilian market as well as a number of them are various places around the world. They were military trainers then and their civilian operated now and used and enjoy. I'm curious. Does the US Department of Defense Still? Surplus military aircraft to the civilian market there's very little of that most of the airplanes that are in the quote Bonier down in Arizona, later model kind of tactical type airplanes back in the mid nineties, there were some airplanes coming out. Mostly trainer planes mostly t twenty eight came out under his traits with museums and stuff, and that provided a lot of the civilian operated inventory, but there's just not a whole lot of stuff left there. That is really civilian friendly I guess. Guess is a better word you know. Some of the technical airplanes have liquid oxygen systems and ejection seats, and you know lots of things that are just beyond the level of interest or financial commitment in time commitment that the average civilian guy wants to go out and just enjoy the airplane. In that case I know you're not the average civilian type. You've piloted bombers and fighters and transports, and what have you? Did you find one or a type more challenging than another pilot? You know it's kind of a building block things you know you start out with the smaller trainer. I I was a civilian pilot RHIANNA civilian pilot. I never was able to get the excellent training that the military gives you so I. Think we're my way up. I sold assessment one fifty on my sixteenth birthday, and worked my way on up. I started in the civilian tailgater. Is the top radio then transition do t six got lots and lots of t six time then transitioned into A. A Mustang and once I got the most time I was able to transition kind of sideways into some of the other world, war two fighters of course air, and the sea fury, and those types of airplanes tbn Avenger torpedo bomber in the military. You're either a fighter, pilot or transporter bomber pilot so I of did the parallel tracks with the B, twenty five and the Douglas, a twenty six after having a lot of other civilian multi engine time in three and four hundred series Cessnas. Teens and both types of airplanes, so it's kind of a building block system. Really that is an amazing array of aircraft, and they're out there in the civilian world, can anyone by one of these things and fly one of these things flying and flying are are not necessarily synchronized ice waller liaison airplane like a single engine they'll five is probably fifty or sixty thousand dollar airplane, some of the smaller L. Birds, the Piper cubs, and in Iran 'cause in those in military colors, or even less than that, but you can get up into the fighters multi million dollars. Dollars of airplane so obviously you need the financial capability someplace on that spectrum and of course, every one of those airplanes as different abilities needed as far as flying the airplane as well as taking care of the airplane, so buying the airplane is certainly one part of the equation, but learning to safely fly the airplane and to maintain your plane properly, you know those are time consuming in dollar consuming items, so everybody kind of fits on that spectrum depending on were they wanna be, and what their financial, as well as time commitment and training commitment is. You touched on maintenance. Some of these airplanes are sixty seventy eighty years old. Though is there a typical ratio of flight hours versus maintenance hours to these machines? That's really hard to say because everybody's use of the airplane. It is different I mean. Some of these airplanes fly couple hundred hours a year. Guys do a lot of air shows and things and charity flights and that kind of. Of stuff and then other airplanes, maybe only flight thirty hours a year and a minimum, any of these airplanes are GonNa have to have either an annual inspection or in equivalent of an annual inspection, which in some of the airplanes is called condition inspection, and then some of the larger airplanes, the transport level airplanes that are over twelve five as well as the turban airplanes require an. FAA approved maintenance program. You know it may be in phases, but it has to be done within a reasonable. So, you know it just depends on the level of commitment that somebody wants getting the work done is fairly easy. There's a pretty good network around, but you get a big airplane like a B.. Twenty five with a sixty five foot, wingspan and eighteen or seventeen and a half foot, tall tale women. It just doesn't fit in your average t hangar that you're GONNA put assessment one eighty two. There's some logistics required there, but you know everybody. Kinda makes that decision for themselves. What level of commitment they

Chicago White Sox: Luis Robert continues to impress

"Game. It doesn't count the standings. But, boy Oh, boy, I watched Friday night the Inter squad on TV, Luis Robert Too long home runs. This guy looks like a monster. It reminds me of Felipe Alou is managing the Expos back in the I want to stay in the mid nineties, and somebody asked him about this young prospect named Vladimir Guerrero. And he had not played in the big leagues yet, and Felicia's answer Wass. When you just look at him, you think superstar and that's almost the same thing you get. When you look at Louie's Robert because time during spring training, you just look at him and he just looks. Like he's going to fill that part of a superstar he has. There's just a GN it factor. And then you watch him play and it solidifies every year. Everything you think about the guy and it's almost reminiscent of like I said what Philippe has said about a young unknown Vladimir Guerrero at the time when he was coming on the market. The White Sox and mean they didn't get him cheaply. It was think $26 million for a guy you don't know if he's going to turn out, but you didn't hear Yankees Dodgers. Cubs, red socks like the ones that have the highest payrolls. Why was that? I know the socks have done a magnificent job getting Cuban players going all way back to Minnie Minoso. Tha Jose of Bray you they've got Moncada. But why were some of the heavyweights not chasing this guy? You know what I wish I had a specific answer for you. I don't have one. But I will say what? You just reiterate what you just said, and amplify on it. The attacks have been a really good job of scouting the Cuban players. Now Moncada was signed by the Red Sox and came in the trade from from Michael Kopeck. But with Michael Kopeck, I should say For sale, but it's just one of those things where the White Sox I think maybe they do their homework better than anyone else. And that's why they were able to get a guy like Louise Robert, because He just looks like the really, really feel He does just looking at him, and then you see him in the box, but it's like, Oh, my God. How good can this guy be? Um You're right. It wasn't cheap. But it wasn't like out of this world money either. And, ah, kudos to the White Sox Foreign office and they're scouting. You know, this is the work of scouts. Thes air, not analytics driven. Data. You define a guy who has never left the island of Cuba, where you don't have a lot of information. This is scouting. And obviously you look, I'm a big proponent of scouting, and I'm a It's frustrating to see how it's being minimalized and Almost extinguished in some places, but there is still a place for scouting. And here's a prime example. We're talking to Pedro Gomez from ESPN. When you look at a team

"cubs" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney

"We detailed some of your conversation with Tom Ricketts What else did you learn? Well I actually. Leave him what he says. They don't have a lot of cash on. I believe him when he says that. At least about the Chicago cubs, the one thing he can push back on Scott Boras leaked email from a week ago is look I renovated. Wrigley field not just my sky box. It's a great experience for the whole place, and I have a top pie payroll. Now that's A. A good argument for Tom Ricketts to make right now a decade ago when he was rebuilding, and he didn't have a top roll different story, so he has a leg to stand on, and and so I think that's part of the reason why he he went public to push back on on Scott. Boris claims look. You can say whatever you want, but I'm putting back into my team. We are we have seen many other businesses as a cash problem. The airline business right. And and some of them have asked for bail outs, and some get it and some some don't of course. Baseball would never would never get it, so it's that it's that disconnect buster between franchise value and cash on hand at the end of the day. The players whether they believe the owners are not don't care look, you may not have cash. That's your problem. You didn't save for a rainy day. That's your problem so I believe it when he says he doesn't have it, but I'm not sure that means the players should bail the owners out. Out they've gotTA. figure out a way to pay you know pay for their costs and pay the salaries and you do that by loans and selling equity and all different ways, but you don't do it by asking us to take a cut meeting. The players I ask people a management side all the time as we talk about the the cash flow issue in teams that might be more stressed at the moment than others, and you hear the some of the teams that you would absolutely expect for example, the Miami Marlins who rely on revenue sharing. To any revenue sharing this year. Like? They're in a difficult spot. folks with other teams are wondering about the Cleveland Indians. Small market team, and the cubs are always brought up as You know the perception in the sport that they are especially in trouble. How cute was your sense? A word what their situation is given all the improvements around the ballpark investments around the ballpark that they've made in recent years now I it's it's very cute. Part of it is the fact they have no local TV money. Necessarily I mean they're just starting. Starting their own network, right, they don't have a deal with the largest cable provider comcast. They haven't played a game yet. On that network the. They're not gonNA. Realize those revenues probably for a year or two. There's little lapse time on that so think about the Yankees and the dodgers and other big market teams. How much money they're making off a local TV, cubs are just starting up that revenue train, so everything is seventy percent. They say look. The Atlanta braves are at sixty three percent, and that's public. Public, we know that talking about game day revenue the cubs, either at seventy percents. That's not too far off of a of another team that we know we can look at, and that is the braves, because they're publicly traded liberty media, so yeah, it's a cute for that reason. They don't have that local money. They just finished a major renovation and Yeah look you bought the park. You renovated the park. You bought the bars around it, so it's on you to figure it out. That's the argument against, but definitely it's a cute. There's no doubt about it. What's your sense? It's it's funny when when owners come out, and they talk about their cash flow problem I know, and you know there are a lot of fans rolling their eyes and say yeah, whatever what? How is it? GonNa Affect the team going forward I. Don't know if you've got a sense of that. Because they obviously have these enormous decisions looming Kris Bryant potentially free agent after two thousand and twenty, one hobby or Baya's Anthony Rizzo with an option for next year. They have to fill in the gaps in their starting pitching What's your sense of what the current situation? How that's GONNA affect the decisions they're going to be making. And don't forget you up. Steam contracts all right. A couple of years as well coincides with all those guys, and he's making good bucket. Also It's going to affect I mean. He is taking a bath this year. That's the point he was trying to make me look. The the choices are we lose biblical money at the mention, my article and that's the that's the phrase. Everybody Chicago's jumping on. That were biblical It's such an aggressive word. Right where they who's biblical money, or they lose just a lot of money right Says it's going to. It's going to be one hundred fifty million. Give or take. A little bit I, it's going to the future I. Mean you mentioned Hobby by while I? I I was at spring training with buyers the day that they the announced. What's the game? The game he was on the cover of okay I went to the opening show played the night. Yeah I played the game against him, and they were days away from potentially signing a deal, there were days away from signing a long term deal. Now they had to drop the negotiations and pick it up again on the other side of this. What's that going to look like? So? It is not a remmel possibility. There's a there's a rebuild another rebuild in the future for the Chicago cubs, but like as you know buster. It's not that easy to dump. It's not going to be that easy to dump contracts right now. I mean I who's GonNa take on these contracts. These other teams are are hurting now. Few teams will be okay, but it's not like they're just going to have buyers all over the place, so it's going to be interesting how this all plays out one more thing in talking to time and other people around the league executives. They are really worried about. About Twenty twenty, one and some people are pushing I'm talking about revenues and how the game's going to be. Some people are pushing to negotiate a deal a two year deal this year next year leading into the new CBA, let's combine this thing, but the majority of people involved in this are like we can't figure out twenty twenty. How are we gonNA figure out this year and next year, so there's really an eighteen month problems here for baseball looming. Now. Tom Ricketts wasn't the only one on management side. He spoke out.

"cubs" Discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast

"A ball thrown there and hit in that way is not going to go out but it did that day. Marceau's Oona. I don't know there haven't been as many many years ago there. There was a there was that spate of players that I wrote about other people talk about who were really terrible and had a lot of home runs and there hasn't been that this year but there are a lot of people who have a lot of home runs and then you look at their numbers and they're they're very they're very blah and I was I had in coming to this series. I mean a lot of things change in the series cubs from playoff contender you know basically out of it and I went from thinking Marcello. Zuma was having a really good year to not anyway. That's crazy swing all right. Let's talk about cups. They win the World Series Stories in twenty sixty and I think that clearly like everything that I'm going to now. Talk about with the you know. Is it worth it to tank and all that in the cubs hubs Calculus note about right like nobody has like maybe literally nobody has ever gotten more out of orders than the cubs did and needed needed you did that and so however I wanna look at the cubs trajectory since then because at the time. I think what it was like basically it. It was a seven year window is what they were talking about. The idea was that they were building a team that had all this great young talent and they knew that eventually the young talent would get expensive expensive part get old things to be sort of as entropy and the whole plan would start fall apart but but there was talk about it be seven year window of this competition and so yes they were terrible for three years but not only were they. GonNa win the world series they were. GonNa have seven years of being really good and so they were really good one year and then they won the world series he's next year they were they were fantastic one hundred and three win team can't they were the best team in baseball by far and then the next year they lost in the NFC s and then the next here they lost in the wild card game now. I'm cheating a little bit. They won more games in that second year but they lost in the wild card game and then this year. They're gonNA miss the playoffs and so the caveat here the being totally honest about this is that the cubs have been good this year like if you look at their run differential. They've been as good this year. They were the previous two years. If you look at their third order winning percentage which is essentially what a projections is in projects projection systems are projecting the stats which they then turned into a third or a winning percentage which they then turn into wins and so a projection system is really really projecting a third order winning percentage in the cubs third or winning percentages is pretty good. It's it's the winning percentage of like well. It's ninety one team and they're going to end up. Winning like eighty. Five is the third order is quite as good but still it's a good team so a good team to make the playoffs a lot of time so I don't know that I don't know whether the conversation to have is about how successful these cubs have been in how in fact their window has stayed open the whole longtime or if it should be to talk about how disappointing they are right now specifically right now how does finding this year is and how it one wonders whether the window is is actually closing in what we can learn from that hat again for the cubs specifically in the specific instance that we're talking about. No doubt about it was good it was it was a it was a good result. They got out of this project. They are happy with it and they don't need me to tell them whether it was worthwhile or not but I've been thinking about this with regards to the phillies to who new coming out of twenty seventy when the astros were so good and the cubs had been so good. It felt like turning three years of tanking into you. A dominant team was inevitable especially if you had the resources to be a big market team afterward and the phillies unlike the cubs have not been good this year. They have not even been sneaky. Good phillies actually pretty mediocre team. They don't really have any strength anywhere and this is posed. I think if you might Kinda do the calendar and you say well. We're really bad now and then we'll do the bridge year and then will be good and this is that year this year they're supposed to be good. They've they went out. They got a bunch of stars who were supposed to be the the final pieces and they just don't have that. They just don't have the base coming out of that rebuild to be very good and obviously very different. The cubs who won the world series in had a five year window but do you think that from the cubs experience since one and from the phillies experience to does it have you rethinking the level of of risk involved in embarking on this plan. You could also be the white sox in there you definitely. I'll man yeah you know that there are players on that team who are considered essential to the rebuild who have had big years have had big breakthrough obviously deleo and and others but I think on the whole you would have to to say that the progress there is disappointing and that they are not clearly safe a year away at this point the way that you would have expected affected them to be at this point as good as Dido's Ben as good as MOCATTA has been while you've been as has been somewhat better in the second half but still they seem seem to be a long way away and yeah. I think you could say that. The concept of taking has taken a bit of a hit you could also I guess throw the braves Raves in there though as a counterpoint because they kind of tanked they tanked perhaps prematurely even more so than in the cubs in the Astros case where they we're pretty ripe for a tear down. They didn't have a whole lot left. There wasn't a lot of hope and outstanding talent there whereas in the braves case they kind of pulled the plug arguably before they had to but they also got back to being a good team in division winner pretty quickly without too much suffering in between so I think yeah it's certainly not too soon to say that. Tanking is an guarantee of anything I think the fact that the astros and the cubs were kind of the first to do it. The cubs I guess started before the Astros the Astros took it to a even greater extreme. Perhaps an unprecedented one. I think the fact that those two teams did that and embarked on that in such an intentional way that we could see what they were doing and trying to do and we could grade how well it worked and then it worked as well as it possibly could have in the short term in that they both went world series and yet it has turned out that the Astros were maybe the team that was built to last for the cubs. Although really the cubs have lasted pretty well so I I just WanNa be clear that the phillies in the cubs. I bring up his S. Two totally different examples with the phillies it is was I underestimating the risk that the thing just doesn't work that you end up going through it. Sign your guys draper you guys and then you still actually not that good and you are still going to you know balance between eighty and ninety for a couple of years and not reach that point with the cubs. It's different like the cubs one hundred three days. They were awesome with them. It's more is the length that you can keep it together. Either shorter than we were in vain because the cubs at the time were not only were they really good when one hundred and three games but they were really young they had a really league farm system and it just felt like they had so many stars that were like young twenty-three-year-old position players. It felt like they we're building some sort of unstoppable dynasty at the time and just a year later no longer seem that way now and so with the phillies is clear like ooh ooh wow this is kinda like worrisome with the cubs. I'm not even sure if I accept the premise that they have not done exactly what they said. I can't decide whether this is a good team or not right now. Whether this is a team that is disappointing because of how the year went but not disappointing because the way they played you know like are they the favorite next year. Do you think if I had to guess today probably yeah I think so too maybe and so oh I don't even like with the cubs I'm sort of just trying to puzzle through whether they are proof of concept or a small warning about how hard it's just how much harder it's GonNa be than you think. It is yeah well. I think they're seen as disappointing just because everything went so well for for them. In Two thousand sixteen in it seemed like they were set up for so long and to get only two division titles out of this if this is all they get if it doesn't continue. Can you beyond that I think that would be seen as somewhat disappointing again. Stipulating that none of this is really disappointing because once they win that world series that was is almost mission accomplished and you may get greedy and want more but that was a huge win for them as an organization that everything else is not really excused judging by whatever from cubs fans but at least you know it puts it in perspective. I think so if it were just losing in the playoffs that would be one thing because I think we all understand stand that can be random but not winning divisions especially at a time when the division isn't really full of powerhouse teams. That's probably more of a letdown even so I I don't think that they are really an argument against tanking it something that we started saying once it became clear that tanking was going to be a trend or at least the kind of Astra's cub style rebuild was going to be something other teams would try to do. We all said that that point like will it can't go as well as it went for the cubs and the astor's every time not everyone is gonna come out the other side of this thing in the world series because it's just impossible if you know a third of the League is trying to do this. They can't all win in the Kennel win right away so I think it is a reminder of that certainly and you look at the whole way that they put this team together and they built it around position players and they drafted hitters and those draft picks worked out and I don't think that they were wrong to construct their team that way. It's something that we all said like wealth. You're going to bet on position players pitchers. You WanNa bet on the position players so this is smart art. This is how they're constructing their team and then it turned out that they developed no pitchers at all and you do still need some pitchers granted they developed developed. Hendricks and area they turn those guys into cy young winners or Scien- contenders after acquiring them from other organizations but in terms of players they drafted drafted or signed themselves. It's just yielded almost nothing and so they have had to supplement they've had to go outside and sign a lot of more high priced pitchers and go get Hamels and Darvish and Kimbrell and Lester and on and on and some of those guys have been disasters and some some of them have been just okay and some of them have been pretty good but on the whole they have really suffered from not having that pitching and they've traded a Lotta guys obviously to get that pitching. I mean they've made trades for her oldest Chapman and Jose Catanha. They've given up very good players and good good prospects who have gone on to success elsewhere and on the other hand you have the braves who kind of built around pitching or at least they intended to build around pitching. Chink and yet then they ended up with Ozzy Osbourne and a Kunia and like a really good position player core even though they sort of really set out to make them pitching cedric team so I don't know I think.

The lawyer hold up his phone filming himself stealthy style strolls to the table and says quote. What do you say guys? What about your father's robberies? How much did your father steel in the end and tell me what bribes did he get how much bribery? How much did you get in bribes? You went to your brothers party that little fucker. Maybe the word here is that Ni- hod thinks it should be whore monger. is more proper so you went to your brothers party. That Little Hormone Ngor here is is the brother of warmonger. You get a driver a bodyguard. What else do you get from the state? How much do you get how much in bribes who's paying Kobe my man the energy and real? Let's eight magnate to the waitress the lawyer says are you sending the bill to Kobe my mind. This family never pays. It's a family that has to know how to pay. They only know how to steal a family of thieves and and quote the boy and his girlfriend stand up and leave the video ends. The lawyer is forty two year old are Cohen one of the past decades most important entertaining and arguably effective social activists. The the boy is of near Netanyahu the twenty four year old son of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. How the day after the event the boy sought to take out a restraining order against the lawyer a word about each man Barack? Cohen is the son of one time Black Panther Hertzel Cohen who even in the early seventies early seventies panther crowd that cultivated debated the image of violent intensity and image that really never did match the reality very much in that crowd of tufts he stood out as being especially a tough he said of himself and his buddies quote we broke shop windows. We turned over tables. We burnt stuff end quote in time. The Father Hertzel Cohen found success in business and in politics ethics becoming the deputy mayor of the Tony Community of Sione Farrakhan was a brilliant student and got a law degree in two thousand eleven. He volunteered his services defending the protesters arrested in the social protests a couple years after that he started an NGO called coming to the bankers although a more accurate if less literal translation would be trolling bankers he started out of the group after being sued by Bank Leumi for outstanding an unpaid loans when he didn't pay the money bank thugs and Repo asshole started harassing him and his partner including shooting repossessing a piano that she'd had since before she ever met him for his sensible debts so the first target of coming to bankers was then Coo of Bank Leumi Rock Effort Rosiak Nah Cohen and other activists organized protest after protest outside our house harassing folks as they went in and out soon the group turns the tension two other bank executives harassing them at home work in the street and online rich bank executives flip the fuck out and they sued Cohen to cease and and does this th they took out restraining orders this led to a series of show trials in which Cohen defending himself Abbie Hoffman the executive producing some brilliant and very youtube a political theater the financial paper the marker chose Cohen is one of Israel's hundred most influential people now. I've never Netanyahu is the younger and less known of the two Netanyahu boys his older brother yet year is the twitter troll who is forever tweeting trumping right-wing outrageous in support of his father he year is a political animal and many including putting many and the Likud expect that one day he's going to be a politician of appeal and durability that out does his dad's Ogden there. Though is the anti yet year he is quiet and shy he is dreamily both both end bookish as a teen he came in third in the International Bible contest prodigious feat of memory and now we is pursuing a degree in archaeology at the university and most of all he receives from the clinic lights and the headlines He doesn't say anything in public. He doesn't tweet he doesn't Post He. He just wants to be left alone now. Predictably an impressively in charmingly Barack Cohen managed to turn the hearing last week over the request for a restraining order into high quality political theater he managed somehow both to use the courtroom to make Prime Minister Netanyahu look like a crook and tweedle Prime Minister Netanyahu son of Nair Fair to admit that he really in the end wasn't actually harassed. It was a bravura performance still somewhere near the end of very bewildered of their Netanyahu said this this quote I got no problem with what you are saying and the accusations you make about my family. I get up each morning and I hear them. I have a great deal of patients and openness to a hearing these accusations I live with it. My father chose a political path and therefore he deserves criticism. My friends who I grew up with since I was zero. Tell me these things to my face and that's fine my brother also made political choices and so the accusations he gets including from you are entirely legitimate. I did not choose a political path one time at an event in honor of my dad had I said to him how much I admire him. Among other things a leader like hundreds of thousands of other Israelis I didn't choose to say something political. I will never go into that field. I would not do that to my future family or to myself. I won't do that to myself and quote. It was a little heartbreaking. The judge gave up their Netanyahu's restraining order for six months. Cohen has to stay a football ballfields and a half away from the kid since then though it seems like everyone has been debating the issue some say the kid is clearly suffering and he's done nothing wrong. In general protests loses its legitimacy when it harasses acids innocent People Cohen Netanyahu and on Rochefort Rosanna. I'm enough but not on their kids their parents their sisters brothers over their friends other say folks told Hertzel Cohen back in the nineteen seventies protests were not legitimate because they were not nice. Sometimes bring social change. You gotta be sort of a Dick because pickiness conserve a higher good so friends I present you with the age old philosophical conundrum pondered by Plato and Aristotle Nietzsche and Kirkegaard. Do the ends justify. The Dickie nece was Barracuda right to ruin their Netanyahu's dinner and will some greater good be served if together either we all harass often they're gone. What do you think look? I'm GONNA confess. I feel a little bit badly Froth Natanyahu not that he you know needs my sympathy or my my my expressions of support but he has clearly staked out his claim to be a private citizen and seems almost wish that he had been switched at the hospital when he was born and didn't end end up being you know the sun the sun and the prime minister so what can he do but this raises larger questions they think first about the role of civility within you know the activists movement today that's been entirely abandoned. You're allowed to do whatever you want in order to achieve your goal and I think it Israel we're seeing a lot of other incidents not not necessarily related to this. We can even think about what happened on the Temple Mount over to Shabaab of a claim that the ends justify the means and you know I'm frankly I'm a little bit sick of it in the end. If you have no integrity in the path that you choose to achieve your goal on to me it just doesn't justify the dishes all right. I'm going to begin again by going out on a tangent and then come back to the question okay so besides the much repeated discussion about the borders of legitimate protests specifically regarding block going I think that the most most interesting aspect of his activity in the strong feelings and reactions as as in this room it's met with is actually one anthropological nature more specifically about the borders order of politeness manners and niceness as I see people are driven crazy by Bala coin from the left and the right because he repeatedly breaks some of the most basic get unspoken rules of Human Conduct Personal.

"That's on Zillow une- by new you mean or Noam Cohen who's got a new record out and who will be listening to her the course of the show but now it is time for discussion so Sarah are the Ashkenazim leaving the Labor Party party in droves with left-wing organizations taking them away in buses. Social media went mad last week over the last minute addition to the Liberal Party list at number ten of a woman named Carmen and Mock Aus a Moss and Marquess most is as political as one can be but she's not your average politician for one thing. She is by profession in a medical clown. Now many politicians are said to be clowns for perhaps are Chagrin. The vast majority of them are amateurs. She's also filmmaker photographer for an curator and most of all she's longtime activist. Most famous is the founder eat years ago of a grassroots organization called pneumatic Mundine. No mcnutt Dolt were Nice. The describes itself this follows. We are a group of neighborhood activists who came together for the common goal of bringing the true problems of distrust stress neighborhoods to public awareness. We aggressors activists fighting for public housing neighborhoods and resonance slated to be removed. You're the second and third generation errors a historically socially economically discriminatory and racist policy and we act in these areas every day with the termination and fearlessness in full belief that our struggle who is real sincere and justified a few months ago and Mkhize almost created a mobile exhibit of photos and tax called lionesses documenting nine women were sexually harassed abused by public housing officials won't poignant story she gave voice to that of Ricky Coen Banou who who expressed when I was nine one morning a policeman acting as a repossession agent came to arrest my mother public housing resonant for failing to meet her payments and my mother was shocked and opposed her detention begging him to leave and not to arrest her he took advantage of her situation violated her sexually for years. When he finished finished with her he turned to me and raped me apart from this exhibition? L. MCI is almost one of the leaders of not a feminist Milwaukee collective and helped organize the alternative Black Knight Culture Festivals which was intended to provide a counterweight to the predominantly normative white night festivals that the Tel Aviv leave Mr Municipality puts on she's also been arrested while trying to prevent poor neighborhoods from being forcibly evacuated by police to make way for gentrified apartment towers for high tech playboys. You'll find her at any demonstration seeking the release of OFFERMAN G STEW FOR HAMAS hands in Gaza and so much more when India put together list of the fifty most influential women in Israel last year last March she was on it. She might also top any list of intersectional Israeli activists as Oh did. I mention she's a lesbian and her dad was one of the Compact Panthers lead the me softly protests the early nineteen seventy s both are mantle. She eagerly embrace the point is Emma. Emma Kaya says no clown. She's a future. Only not everyone agrees after the announcement that Amici is almost joining the Labor Gesher list are it's political correspondent respondent claim Levinson dug up and then tweeted a two year old facebook post in which he wrote dissing the ethically Moroccan of `Gaby who had been recently elected did to head the Labor Party with I'm not crazy about everybody's saying that Labour pattern values are gonNA disappear now what values oppressing whole populations with with racist policies radiating kids kidnapping babies this does is dedicated to those who missed the days of the old Labor Party and if you think that I was supposed to shut my mouth because a Moroccan now heads the party think again Levinson's dry summary Put simply tenth place on the Labour List representing the Gesher Party Carmen L. Michaela's and then we're off to the social media races amongst the responses to Levinson were one Ari Serchio who tweeted we need a Moroccan rock and horror like that in the Knesset so that the Moroccan Miri Eh give will sound like an etiquette queen or this remark by guy called Benny Wagner hurts his friends came to bury the Labor Party a uruguayan-born religious journalists named dove harbored tile wrote the call goes out to all Eskenazi Azeem to send us those who founded the country with blood and devotion those who brought the other tribes to hear but not to vote for Labour Ashkenazi must bend in the Labor Party to the Moroccans Walk Ins and added the Labor Party has begun a cultural war against Ashkenazim. This will only spread if they know that the white tribe is not standing up to the black tribe but with this last statement in its full context don't hover tall is a major world class clown of the amateur variety some might say alongside these ugly immoderate responses one found other Labor supporters reporter struggling to make sense of Emma is entry into their party in a more sensible tone the Mongolians grandson Galil ben Zo posted on facebook that he loves pellets Orly Levy of cases but in my aim was right out of history all the Labor Party accomplished both before and after the state was established. I don't know if Karmanos Ermanno chaos is ignorant or blinded by hatred for her information. When the state was founded and the government discussed the immigration of Arab Jews there are those who demand and only a selective selective immigration of the young and healthy the prime minister in full disclosure? My grandfather decided in favor of taking everyone in and said the Nazis had a selection of Jews shoes. We will not have a selection that is how all Arab Jews wanted to come here were brought here Labor's no longer my home and I won't vote for it because of the hatred of the glorious pass the Karma no Makhaya held forth in which by the way in the history of the Labor party she herself will not even be a footnote. It sees many longtime Labor voters orders share some in some of these misgivings the same time that MCI seems to have spurred some voters who never believe they vote for any party other than the Labor Party. She makes me simultaneously also bringing some people like herself who never believe they could vote for the Labor Party political science professor TV personality public public intellectual and activists honeys Veta- posted on facebook not the same Zubaydah Dad posted on facebook. Those who know me know not one who likes the Labor Party and that's an understatement but and this is a big but the presence of Carmen misleads a socially conscious woman with a giant heart and a clear ideology shakes my rolled in its foundations it makes me think hard about high will vote in the coming election so the questions first this discussion are is Carmen. AMAC is almost as joining the Labor Party a harbinger or maybe a catalyst of an historic change the truly matters the Labor Party and if so what does that change and what do we expect will be its impact. I just WanNa say that honey Zubieta said big but I just feel I feel like I need. I oh that makes a lot to say was the song we need to play them right now. So what do you think Oh had listen. I know Carmen personally and I know oh my father personally as well but that's a whole other other issue. AH Carmen is one of the most amazing women in the social political activist atmosphere in Israel. She is extremely devoted. She is tenacious. She is there for for every single demonstration meeting reading concert. Whatever I mean listen there's like a panel of faces that you see when you go to demonstrations around the the same lake intersectional political issues and she shows up every single time which is just amazing you know sit ins for people who are about to be kicked out of their houses women in public housing brutality challenge against Ethiopia and Palestinian women? She is there every single time so I think the first thing you have to say is that these attacks are blatantly racist disgusting. Ah I think they're just like a catalyst for people who wanNA shake their hands from a meal pederson only eleven direction the Labor Party is going to right now. She's just a very easy very easy person to to spew this hate at but beyond her and her place on the list I think that the backlash against her and the public conversation regarding the party's Newman's he's lucky social orientation raises the question of the future of Labor Party as a whole I mean is it even the Labor Party anymore. MINUS ITS PIONEER BASE plus. The right-leaning vote Peres is planning on getting from the periphery what's left of the Labour Party as we know it so as I understand it the major thing that remains is parties all powerful and feared mechanism or your mum Gannon in Hebrew which is one of the most powerful remnants of its Mabini Pass. Now this creates an interesting situation as I see it on the one hand you have a merger with Gesher and rebranded party on the bounce back from the worst election in its history and on the other hand you have this archaic and extremely powerful mechanism of employees and officials which can't feel completely comfortable with this new and heavily pigmented labor list altogether different from what they're used to. This seems like the harbinger of a monstrous power struggle which were largely be decided by the success or failure failure of penalties gamble on all the Levy and unwillingness to merge with block and merits which is a fascinating political experiment if you ask me but if he loses his figurative shirt shirt on the craps table of Israeli politics right after we got by scalding failure and along with Shalita mortgage taking an indefinitely from politics I worry that the Labor Party might just swerved swerved violently back to its old shitty ways shunning. The new spirit is currently displaying turning to former iterations of itself for inspiration into its original base of voters for soloists and security so tell me if I've got this right one. One of the things you're saying is that there is sort of a deep state a deep party within the Labour party like really that there are that there are structural reasons there are people who control levers of power in very practical ways probably they're signed on Lisa's and they have and they control the salaries or whatever and the this is the old Labor Party and that unless this version of the Labor Party does surprisingly well in the election something like ten seats as opposed to the six they got then the deep party is going to strike back and basically defenestrate the just toss out all the is that what you're saying you're making Star Wars Ashkenazim Strike Back. You're making curriculum Netanyahu listen. I don't want to sound like no. I believe what I just said I do. I think it's less than thinking about it as a deep party and more like thinking about the Labor Labor Party as a giant organization I mean this is the organization that one's not so long ago practically ran the country they have officials they have ties to different organizations and I'm sure that these people like most other people in the world do not lake radical change. They like their party as it was and yes. I do think I do believe that if pellets is operatives gamble isn't very successful or at least moderately successful then the power struggle that that will follow this election which will happen anyway will probably already already be in the favor of the Party Mangano on the departing so Sarah. I want to hear from you but I have one more question for you had at the moment which is looking from the other perspective one of the the most surprising things for me about that this was I believe that if one had twelve months ago said to Carmen five predict that in twelve months you will be running with the Labor Party. I think.

"cubs" Discussed on 90 Miles Podcast

"I don't know how to make this argument any better the brewers right now. Just are not what we expected them to be lineup wise. I honestly expected this to be the best lineup in the National League. It's not right now and there's some ugly spots in it, and the cubs have pretty good lineup but they can't seem to win any more games than the I mean. It's more of a pitching issue, which we're not as much talking about today's so. Although there's been issues with with getting runners in runners in scoring positions, some of that, as far as in general, as a team, there's been they've had their moments trouble with that, but not boaty, obviously. But but, but team in general so that some of it, but mainly it's been the pitching, which, you know, I'm sure we'll cover another time in, and, you know, the cubs may, we will we got kimbrel coming. So he's already in triple A, so that's gonna help. But, but anyways, yeah, let's we'll see. We'll see. Okay. Okay. Well, let's get to the tweet of the week here. Yes. So I don't know jumping on that since it's kind of brewers based kind of ties into my whole depressing argument that I just had with you. This comes from Luke Launer. At LA at LA U N D is easy. L E thirty three salon diesel thirty three he kinda puts it into words. I don't know if I agree entirely with this, but I agree with parts of it. So what Luke head to say? Kissed in here needs to be recalled ASAP. The brewers clearly aren't quote unquote all in, like they say they are by keeping him down in AAA, but letting guys who can't do their jobs effectively and efficiently up in the majors over him. Exclamation point. So basically, he's on board with idea that kissed in here. Maybe should never have gone down. That's more my opinion they should've left Shaw down and let them get right? Anyway, we've been over this time. But what I would like to do is point out some numbers that kind of backup. What Luke's opinion is here. Because I did tweet out just a little earlier today in preparation for this episode some interesting numbers so before. Esten hero came up and I'm not trying to tie this to Travis Shaw at all. But before here came up the brewers were averaging four point seven two runs per game. Once here came up for the next seventeen games, the Burs averaged five point nine four runs. That's a one point two two run per game increase. That's a massive massive increase in the thirteen games since hero, went back down there, even below where they were before they're at four point four six runs per game. Now you can talk to me a little bit about having to play you know out of those last thirteen games. Five of them have come in. Petco park in San Diego. And oracle park in San Francisco, but you can't tell me that, that one run per game difference isn't tied to having somebody that fits into that fourth best fourth or fifth best contributor role in your lineup. They took a guy. Oh, okay. I'm gonna try not to go off the rails. Amy tricky. You can feel it common. The guy that was. Yeah. To eighty one batting average three thirty three on base percentage five thirty one slugging eight sixty five Opie s right? We just talked about how the brewers don't have anybody else anywhere, you know, they've got four guys over eight hundred hero would be the fifth, so it'd be Fame's than hero than brawn than gamble. Without that guy in the lineup. They just don't score as many runs aren't as good against left handed, pitching Casten era is going to be part of the argument, why I think the bruise will be a deeper better lineup then the cubs by the end of the season, but it's really frustrating to watch this team not score runs knowing they were scoring runs when that guy was up the adult know if you've got anything to add to that, or some frustrations from past cubs teams where you've seen things like this, or, you know, I, I don't know. It is. It is does seem. It you know, when you really look at the lay out of the lineup with the brewers and especially in that area. And you look at what here did. And you it just does make you kinda wonder my God. I mean you got he got several starters sub seven hundred PS you know. It's like. Yeah. I mean, the biggest make salary of the biggest contributors from last year are sub seven hundred opiates the Anna Agee Laren Shah that means there should be some progress into the mean which is what I'm counting on. But. You can't sit here and run this lineup out there every day. When you've got a guy banging on the door. That's just where I'm at with a. Yeah. Yeah. I mean it seems to me that you, the, you know, it would make sense to. Have here up. I think that would make the lineup better not better than the cubs. Don't get me wrong. There. Not right away. I would I would agree with you right away. But, you know, over time it could I wouldn't expect custom here at a hit, you know, to eighty one for the rest of the season. I'd be happy with two sixty five to seventy. He, he was on pace to basically, contribute at a clip better than Travis Shaw did last year in a way and I'm not trying to pitch them against Shaab when Sean Eggy lar- have five home runs each and, you know, they both have about one hundred ninety plate appearances in some kid comes up in sixty nine plate appearances hits five it's an issue. But anyway, that's the tweet of the week for my perspective. Yeah. It kind of didn't mean to cut you off there. I don't know what else to say about it. I think here needs to be up a SAP agree with Luke Launer. Well, I don't think there's any more time to waste. They've blown a chance to take big lead on the cubs in the last few days. Yeah. I mean I. Well, and I guess that might be a good time to mention about the standings, just briefly. Fortunately, for both the cubs brewers even though they have not done as great. Neither had the rest of the central so yeah. Yeah. What happened to our National League central dominating the rest of the league? Yeah. What is going on Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. Come on. Yeah. It's I don't get. I don't get it. I don't know. I it's a little odd. I mean. You know, you got the central you got last ten even if you look while last ten you got. Well, I guess the cardinals are six four everyone else's. Yup. Five hundred or worse. Cincinnati. Milwaukee in Chicago. Yeah. Pittsburgh walkies five cubs Ford, six the last ten it's like, you know, I mean, the cardinals had an opportunity to get back in the mix more. So the brewers or the cubs won had an opportunity to run away further into the lead. But instead, everyone sunk so, yeah, it's been awful. Don't look now. But the National League West appears to be much better than we thought it would be Arizona to me is a bit of a surprise Colorado's doing what Colorado does doesn't surprise me. Yeah. San diego. We knew would be better. I didn't expect them to be five hundred as of today. They've got a game starting a little bit about an hour and a half with Milwaukee tonight, but San Diego has looked good. The pitching's been pretty solid. You know, the runs against total isn't terrible. Yeah. There with Milwaukee's? If you wanna look at it that way. But I think when it all shakes out the National League central will still be the best. Division in baseball. But that's going to require Cincinnati and Pittsburgh to get their crap together. Yeah. Quite frankly, and I would never count on that. So I can get their stuff together. They got another game against the White Sox, and they got the Mets, and hopefully they can get it together. A not great Mets team. So maybe four games there, give them a chance. But then they got four against Atlanta which they've been doing good this year. Atlanta's the real deal, I've been in touch with my friend, Jesse Drager a little bit back and forth, Atlanta does look like they're pretty legit. Yes. Starting rotations been pretty dang good Julio Tehran. If you look at his peripherals, I happen to have them on my fantasy team you know, with the guys from and Gail from my Fanshawe's fantasy baseball league dizzle. Mike and Glenn. Anyway, I have Julio Tehran. But his peripherals have been bad last night. He finally, blew up a little bit outside of that Atlanta's pitching looks pretty good. They're young. Ev. Everybody that thought Philadelphia and the Mets, and for some reason, Washington, where the class of that division. I don't know how much baseball they watched last year. But last checked Atlanta looked pretty dang good last year too. Yeah. I don't know where all that. Fall off was expected to come from. Right. I'm assuming just media bias as usual, but the east, I think Atlanta's the class of that division Philadelphia's rate there. We'll see what happens. Yeah. But a lot of baseball left to be played the west looks pretty solid right now. Milwaukee always plays pretty mediocre to poor Leo west. So I'm not terribly surprised they've had a rough road trip. Yeah. How do the cubs generally do are they usually pretty? Okay. Oh, west. Or do they struggle a lot? I think we really talked about this season. I you know, it's, it's been okay. I mean they had trouble with the dodgers, but, you know, most teams are but they competed well, the dodgers are good. He competed mo- most of the time when they have come out west to face the dodgers. They have had a lot of success. I've been. Fortunate to be I'd say I, I'd have to dig in. I don't know. But I, I'd say, I'm well over five hundred as far as cubs wins at games. I've I was at so that's good. Well, that's, that's something we should review at some point to the next time there's a west coast team in tone from one of the two clubs. Maybe take a look at the history a little bit. Yeah. You can break down the cubs. You know, the cubs and brewers who's better through a third party kind of view. I'm pretty sure the cubs should be better than the brewers have been out west based on what I remember. But Ryan interesting, interesting. Yeah. Yeah. So all right. But yeah, I guess that brings us some predictions, right? Yeah. I think that pretty much wraps up the annal central breakdown. Plus, a little quick overview, you know, outside of that one thing, I did want to mention the Miami Marlins have had Jordan Yamamoto who came over in the Christian yelich trade starting his gun to starts seven innings pitched both starts, and he's had two shutouts. I mean he hasn't allowed to run in fourteen innings in two games two wins to quality starts. So an impressive showing from somebody that did come over in that Christian yelich trade. Yeah. Maybe not all is lost on that trade for the Marlins. But, you know, Yamamoto I'm happy for them regrets. The Marlins may be able to make the claim they came out better and. I don't think you can ever make an argument like that, when you win a National League MVP and take your team to the brink of the world. But maybe they didn't totally get hose that it will give you the may not totally got host. But the better end of the deal. All he'll need to grab a couple of Young's before we have that talk. That'd be fun. Maybe that would be good. Well, maybe he and you dervish will be in the sei-yung conversation together. And we can cover that. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Right. Okay. Predict onto prediction. Speaking of predictions, speaking of you Darvish, actually, I, I'm gonna go ahead, just because you mentioned Darvish, I figured is better transition. I'm gonna dive right into my prediction right now super, he bring it you know, he starts on Friday against Vargas against the Mets in Chicago. I think Darvish has been pitching great this year. I think the special. All year. Not the beginning of the year. But, but lately, I think he's, he's had a lot of decisions in which he pitched. Well, and then the the bullpen, you know, loss at forum, he's had some bad luck in that sense. I don't think four six five ER is just bad luck. Well that he. Yeah. Well in any case that was earlier in the season, mostly, he's been pretty good recently. But that's fine. That's fine. Because whatever your, your perception emboldened, this will. We'll be there and even though it won't be as bolt. So it's worked well for me. So my prediction. It's. On friday. Oh, yeah. But Varga says three point seven four Yara. So, you know, just because he's got a better Yari than Darvish doesn't make it bolt. I'll shut up shut up. Shut up, Darvish Darvish, we'll get the W and one runner lasts. Seven innings, or more? Innings pitched. Is it one earned run or one run, total one earned run or less? I mean either way it's not gonna happen..

"But he like, I think he was even like left off off the shredder for it'll be network top ten third baseman. And a lot of a lot of cubs writers and cubs reporters are saying the he's he's got like he's just Matt like when people ask about them last year. Like, hey, what happened last year? How do you feel about this year? He kind of has a chip on his shoulder like journalists thing to say, but he like it's crazy that people forget how good this guy actually is. There's a big elephant room and his. James Addison, Russell. The cubs are no stranger to domestic violence in their players. They had roles Chapman who they traded for. They trade. One of the best players in baseball at the time. Prospect wise for him who is going to be a very good baseball player for while. They've Addison Russell was a very good shortstop. When playing only twenty five years old three years of team control left only making three point four million this year suspended for a while the Mesic abuse does he fit into this team? If he doesn't fit into this team. I I would assume you trade him for starting pitching, either prospect or depth. What do you think I have been so anti Russell since the beginning of last season? Like, even even back. There was like a little time that I had like a blog, and I wrote this huge article on why to trade Addison Russell after like twenty sixteen. There has been rumbling since like since he came up pre 2016 sixteen World Series. This guy's a scumbag. This guy is the way. Worst. He has like two or three different kids with two or three different women. He's constantly seen out at at nightclubs at two three four in the morning in in Chicago when they have a day game the next day. There's like this guy on on Twitter. I forgot his name. But every time he spotted Russell in a nightclub or has like seen tweets about it. He tracks Russell's day game stats for the next day. And Russell bats like like under one hundred. He's so bad. The dude is not taking the serious. He so naturally Townsend. Baseball wise, he fits into this team. Perfect. I think he's like one of the most perfect shortstops in like in baseball when it comes to like build and skill set and feeling and hitting the the man but perfect dude, exactly. But it's not it's real life sucks. Get them off my team. Honestly right now, just cut him. I don't care if you go somewhere and like wins the World Series because he's a huge like keep of apart. I wouldn't even be mad. I just don't want them on our. Team. Texas do that all the time. Yeah. Texas would take him you know, happily with a smile on his face. I agree. I think he needs to be moved on from this team. I think the cubs needed to get away from that whole like y'all get these guys second chances. But I think that they're gonna try and raise his stock. I think he plays the cubs this year at some point if he's decent someone gets hurt. He gets moved for whatever feels not an idiot. He's not going to give them away for free. And the way baseball is now on the way sports are now you literally can get away with murder and still play all in all we know is not a great guy. But he helps the baseball team, and he will help this organization either by getting traded for somebody or playing I just don't know which what yet moving to a happier topic. You've another utility guy absorbs two point, oh, David Bodey. He's a bigger, dude. But he's at like as all hell where did you see him this year? He I think he's gonna get sixty seventy games this year. He's he like he has his zobrist. He's not as good. He's he's not like a smart savvy veteran, but he has. Moments. He was huge for the cubs last year. I think he I doubt his his wars this high. But he was a reason that the cubs won like three or four games last year include that grand slam do that grand slam. I didn't see live. But it's awesome. I bet it was man. It was great. Didn't that was helmet..

It's pain and Fitz on ESPN radio, the ESPN app siriusxm channel eighty Jason bids hanging out with Nicole Briscoe in Nicole Zimper Sarah and there's no cubs sweatshirt. Tonight I'm keeping an arm's length distance, the wind sweatshirt, though that that we've gone from that to that talks to where you are in the recovery process. It was a very long night for you last night, and it's raised a million questions for the cubs as they move forward from a loss to the Rockies. The Rockies advancing cubs season comes to close, and it really sort of becomes a bad news day for the cubs because on top of the season ending now. Have Addison Russell that's been suspended, so so you're looking at a situation where the the news today feels particularly bad for the cubs and the future feels particularly head-scratching at this point. Can we take it separately? Yes. The Addison Russell thing is an entirely separate issue. And of course, I don't think that had anything to do with the game last night. I mean, I don't even have to be a cubs fan to look at that season and be like it's disappointing given the fact that they have so much talent on the roster. They've so much talent there and they had forty games this season tied with the Orioles that lost one hundred and fifteen games. The oils that just had to release Buck Showalter today. Like we're done like they scored one run forty games this season with that roster was Kris Bryant with Wilson controllers with Baya's that had a hundred eleven RBI. Okay, go. That's going to take us to the question. We're going to be asking a lot tonight. Who's that on? I mean, when you look at forty one run one run games over the course of the season, then we have to start to ask the question, who's fault is that because the rumor mill churning already today, the Joel Madden and I don't want that. I don't want that. I'm not in that camp. I, I think it's really hard to say. You look at the guy that got you your first championship in a one hundred years. Two years ago, it was two years ago, and the problem is it's a problem because cubs fans have suddenly got, we've gotten spoiled, right?.

We'll get shit. We'll give them a wild card. I got. I got a question for you. So you're firmly planted yourself is a Cubs cubs fan. fan. I can't handle this. Just because you're a bitter SOX fan doesn't mean I have to be so you can go crawl on your own little cave. I, I want it on record. I wanted on record. So you're planting yourself as a cub fan record? I've been to more White Sox games than you in my life then. No, you have insane. Alex, here's I have a question for you name something you've ever done in your life where you said, I, you have done less of it than someone else that was a confusing. So Alex every time. Every single time every single time. Alex goes, do a White Sox game in his mind accounts for ten games that's not true. Alex. I had season tickets for the White Sox from when I was like two to when I was eighteen. You're going to games on your two years. I don't find. Here's. Don't believe you're Frank. I feel like I would have seen you at all the games do stand, you stand out? I would have seen. Yeah, I think my dad do wanna call my dead. Do you wanna call them us only counterargument Frank to party observer here. Alex dumb argument. Alexan- I in high school with our buddy dumb. We have a ticket scam, then still works today. Need the ticket scam ever. I didn't need. It has a little scam Artis. No, absolutely. And you guys. Scam to this way. We got better seats at games that otherwise he wouldn't have gone to, and we just bought a shitload hot dogs. No one bought the tickets should we tell, oh, explain the scheme. It was breaking the law. Yeah, we broke the law so. Summer college Dom was like, let's. Theory, limitation hours working in construction or pizza delivery driver. So we didn't have a whole lot of money everyone you were working? Yeah, whichever odd job during the summer. So I, we afternoons off. We really wanted to go White Sox games, but one hundred level tickets cost like twenty five to fifty bucks. That's a lot of money when you're getting eight bucks an hour or whatever. So what we would do is, is that we had the PDF for the White Sox is always the same. It was it's it's the same. So we got a PDF that we put on on the computer and we were edited to facing that day and we'd look up on like Scekic or like TicketMaster which tickets have not been sold. So like if right behind the dugout there's three seats that haven't been sold and it's like ten minutes. It's like an hour before gametime. It's the White Sox. Probably not gonna sell those tickets..

Yeah, he's dealing with. He's he's steering young ship said, he's got a manager young pitching staff. He's gotta manage these young stars Hauer Ozzy Albee's of kunia. He's, he's, he's had guys like Marquette, Jay. Those those are veteran guys keep going goodness, snicker. So there's really not a lot of expectation for. Yeah, I mean, it's gonna be a while. Yeah. Well, also if they ever get hungry, they can just grab snacking. He's never going to get fired because not going anywhere for a while. Yeah, Snickers. Making jokes wanting to believe in who bunting do I believe in bunting. Are you if you were manager, would you? Yes, giving away outs. You look at it as giving away outs. I look at through a different lens of applying pressure, making decision forcing you to play the game. I like that because I could swing the bat, hit the ball up in the air and really just leave it to you to catch the pitchers bunting I'm or in a crucial situation. I could force you to feel the ball cleanly, execute a clean, throw enforce the other guy on the other end to catch the ball as well pressure. So if you're a numbers guy. Yep. And I, I know this we are run-scoring expectancy table proves that if you are bunting runner over from first to second base with less than one out. So with zero outs your odds of actually scoring a run, go down. They are less than if you were to not to, but doesn't that vary from team to team. Well, that's the idea of for me, the outcome varies from. Not because who am I? I think Jerry would say, you know, if if I've got Pablo Sandoval over at third base, there might be a shot that I lay down a button, make his fat ass. Try to feel the baseball if throat that could happen that could happen. So you pick on weaknesses? Yeah. All right. My last question seeking question, put him promo code take, and you can go to an MLB playoff game, ten dollars cheaper, with promo coats make seatgeek. They are presenting sponsor. We love them could put it in, give it to us World Series, matchup champion. Come on Dallas, no pressure, but Dan Herron a far more accomplished pitcher than you. Predicted in two thousand sixteen the cubs, verse Indians and cubs to win at all at the all-star break. He did. Yep, that's impressive. No big deal. It's good far more impressive employed. His hit play. You wouldn't know that you're not, oh, he actually are the. You didn't even know, Brad, Snickers was for we play for everyday played just taken against. Yeah. He was former. We know que Cascais the as you can say, whatever you want to be better, be right. Choice because everyone's gonna. Listen to this. We're commit, you're at a very bull choice. You know what? If I'm being honest, I don't know that a starter lists team has as good of a chance of getting all the way through the postseason as a team with starters. So like to think we said Brett Anderson, Trevor Cahill, Jackson while, but when you're not running out that starting rotation from the from the onset? Yeah, I think there's some the two thousand fourteen cubs. Right? So I think I don't think they get as far as I'd like them to see this. Okay, so give us it, give it to us. So I think it very well could be the Cleveland Indians from the American League. Oh, okay. And I think it could be the this is not could be this is your prediction just it'd be the dodgers. Okay. And then the winner, I think it's gonna be the Cleveland Indian Okay. You're giving so much Brana curse to Cleveland. He absolutely was. Yeah.

"So let's take out the wildcard game both of them. So the Rockies cubs as in the Yankees. Let's talk about the three teams. The AL three teams, the NO strengthen weaknesses. Like basically tell me the Red Sox the the Indians in the Astros what will meet, what will like bring them on those three, right? Yeah. What what's their downfall? What's the thing that if you are a Astros fan, you like? I hope this doesn't happen to us because we know this team inside and of all the same. I hope we don't have to rely on the bullpen. Right. And then I hope we don't have to rely on the bullpen and then I hope we don't have to rely on the. Yeah, they have. Yeah, driller still correct? Yes, yes, yes, they've got Andrew Miller. They've got Brad hand. They've got their their, you know what I'm saying. They're in a good position, but that would be really too because these teams off instantly are really like you're pissing into the wind. If you're trying to tell me that these teams are not people that you're afraid of off. Pensively. Right. It'd be good line-ups. Right. You've got great lineup. So with the rotations that I mentioned and the offense of capability, if you're getting down to brass tacks and it's nut cut in time in the bullpen. Seven, eight, nine. It's going to be about who shows up as out in between those three teams. So like we said earlier, we don't know who's going to win these playing games tonight. I don't even count it. They're not playoff games right there play their playoff. They're not play off the play, the play. We did. We didn't brace debate a couple of weeks ago whether or not this guy. I think it does count is a playoff game. If you are the Boston Red Sox, who would you rather play the Yankees or the as if you're the Boston Red Sox, you would rather, I think you would rather play the Yankees. Okay. Yeah. I think the as just represent an air of the unknown willy being doing his weird shit. Everybody wants your games. You know what to you kinda know what to expect. You know who the guys are, but you not really sure you're like I might. I could fuck around with other wrong pitch to the wrong dude. And this could be over quickly, right? You just don't have a feel for who that is. And as far as the bulls, Chris Davis, you just haven't seen these guys with the repetition that you have seen the arms for the New York Inca. These are guys that you probably I don't want to say comfortable with because you're just not fighting to get to the bat rack to stare down ninety eight. I just I just can't believe the as are going to are in the playoffs with Brett Anderson. Trevor k. hill in Edwin Jackson, it's proof bells. Fucking doesn't. Predators is a friend of the program. I say. I. Nice guy. See, put like Edwin Jackson Jackson showed up late to the cubs for training and said that he got lost its, hey, you ever try to that park. Yeah. Yeah, actually have not easy to got their fine. Not easy to find. Okay. What about the NFL let's go to the. What is the weaknesses of the dodgers the brewers in the Braves, the Braves, no. Talking about the Braves chop on, right, or is that problematic? I think it's a. Okay. All right. Maybe a hashtag, don't do the actual shop. Yeah. Got it now. Okay, still good still, you don't know what it's crazy for the Atlanta Braves. I think the biggest thing to question with them would be their youth house. The youth going to respond the young rotation as well. Maybe they're so young. They don't know that they should. They don't know the moments too big for a big fan of that mindset. It's a really dumb mines. Full come. You get it, you know it. So there's just, you know what I'm saying? You turn off the pay per view in the hotel, and you build those satchels and you let them drive out on the diamond. You get excited about.

"So in knowing that we can't hit, it actually is a smart move by Joe being like, yeah, we can't. No one can hin. So let's not hit the pitcher again. Actually think that bud black didn't do that could have job. No. I mean, it's really pitchers. He left in the game where it's like, what is this guy doing? Listen, it's tough to manage these types of games where it's just so long in the margin for error, so Finn and it's like GM guide. Yeah. Min. I thought I actually have no complaints against Joe on this one. It's just the the cubs offense. This was if you watch the cubs all year actually. Said this on evening act before before the game. I was like this, the cubs, this game will be a microcosm of their season. And by that, I mean, they will either win by winning ten to two or they'll get shut out because that's that's how their season has been. It's been either the bats are. They had the fourth most runs in baseball, but they also had the second most games where they had zero or one run very straight do the math there that that clearly means that they run hot and cold and they've run Colt and it sucks because they have all the town in the world. And maybe if you sign Jake Arrieta and don't sign you Darvish be nice to you. Still being nice to you. You might win a few more games. You might not have to deal with the one game while cart. Yeah. I liked the fact that they weren't. They didn't start Jason Heyward because they don't want him to play too well, and then he's acting out. That's an issue there. So weird spot because the cubs, like let me ask you this PF and a real real question. It's a really weird spot as a cubs fan because the cubs were disappointing this year to lose the wildcard game. It's disappointment. But with that said, they have now gone to the playoffs four straight years, never done in franchise history. They've won the most games of any MLB team in the last four years they've won. They've won a World Series. They've gone to to LCS's. I mean, it sucks, but at the same time, this is what playoff baseball is, and the goal is to get in every year and they've done that. My my serious answer is like ten years ago. If I told you all those nights there you over the moon, you'll be extremely happy about it. So what I say to you is embrace it because this feels like the closing of a window right now? No, I don't think so. I'm fucking around with you. They still, they still have a lot of and they've got a lot of young. They've got a very, very young team Harper. You'll be back price is going to be there next year. You'll. Lose in the divisional round next year. That's what the loser. Bryce Harper pick that up from the national? Yes. Joe can really well. Well, let me tell you. I said that DC sports would never lose another playoff game this summer. They haven't. Yeah, they haven't lost the playoff game. Are you gonna make Washington jokin. What do you mean the state of Washington? No, no, we TC the loss of mystics. Yeah. Well, they made they lost. They made it to the WNBA finals. Pretty good. Yeah. I mean, that's pretty good. I guess we'll take it's decent enough, but well. No, let me finish out real quick. Mike, my final thoughts on on the cubs is like the baseball, so weird and it really is like, if you look at, you know, obviously Billy being the'll. They all have the same philosophy that it's basically a crap shoot. Once you get into the playoffs getting into the playoffs, the goal every year, getting into the tournament and anyone can win it. Obviously, you want to not be in a one game playoff because it's fucking so like volatile, but the cubs have gone to the playoffs for four straight years, and that is the goal and they've done that and it sucks..
