"Fans. Now, Only enough people get like five votes on any poll they put. Yeah, it's not a good enough sample size, Regardless if you're if you're a team trying to win, and you're listening to us like we're emotional over the top, and sometimes yes, we're right. Like sometimes we see it the right way and And that and that's OK. If it aligns where a decision aligns with the fans want that That could be good. It's good for business good for good for everybody. But if every decision is being governed by what were screaming on W It's just It's not gonna work out last one here. Three names to watch Hayman on the Philly search. If they do hire someone again, he said, It could be Ned Rice all year. But if they do, hire someone, three names, all from the same team one you heard right here last night. Just around this time, Here's Heyman. We will see whether they look around. If they do, I wouldn't be shocked if they looked at the Yankees. They have several assistant GM types will have that title or not, at least two or three guys that I think they might look at. Joe Girardi obviously has some power there now is a certainly a big name manager. They didn't Of course, I have a great year this year, but I think they do have a great feeling about Girardi going forward, and he might Convince them or give them an idea of who in New York could work. Gym. Andris A guy who stands out Hey, was Cubs GM for Andy MacPhail, So Henry knows both MacPhail and Girardi. Well, I wouldn't be shocked if he was brought in Tim nearing is another guy was a Red Sox player was in the Red Front office now in the Yankee front office, Highly respected, and Damon Oppenheimer, who made all these great great draft picks for the Yankees is another one. So I think they may look at the Yankees if they don't decide stick with rice for GM. Yeah, a couple of things there one. I mentioned him Darren last night. I liked him nearing. I think that guy's going to be a GM. I think that would be a really good move. I could see why they want to go down the Yankee path again. They hired Brian Barbara last You're scouting director. Sorority like You want to kind of have some guys that have worked together before and know we took. That makes sense. The other two. I don't know enough about Damon Oppenheimer. And if he's Cashman's number two, he probably knows something. The other one, though, Jim Hendry I'm out. Andy MacPhail's guy from Chicago. Can we stop doing the any MacPhail Guy thing and also Jim Henry 65 years old. Like you don't have to have a new wave 35 year old that that's not necessary. But again, the MacPhail 70 Jim Henry 65. I mean, I talked her. I don't need Jim Hendry here who built his? I guess His claim to fame is the Bartman cubs that him and MacPhail put that team together, Which was pretty good, but it's 2020. So I mean, build a team that lost to the Marlins in the playoffs. Yes, okay. I mean, I get I get, you know, we talk a lot about process over result really very team that consistently wins 92 95 games. That's far more impressive from a GM standpoint, then Put together a team that wins 87 games wins the World Series one year and then does nothing the rest of the time. But I just I agree with you like, why are you going out and hiring guys? They're 65 70 years old. When you've admitted as much right? John Middleton admitted on Saturday afternoon, a group of six people that he did this undercover press conference with that they have issues they need to turn over a new leaf they need. Change within the front office and just hiring another one of any MacPhail's guys who have been around with him for a while. It doesn't do that for me unless for some reason. The one thing I thought was interesting is I think that was in the first quote when they talked about Ned Rice about how Andy McPhail is one year left on his deal. I wonder if there's gonna let Andy MacPhail Ned Rice run out this one here and then kind of start over next year. Be quick because we've heard that before where they didn't want to hire GM this year. They don't want to rush into anything. And you know Jim Salisbury Road thing about Theo Epstein and you know him, possibly becoming a free agent after next year. It almost sets up to where If John Middleton decides to write a blank check to somebody in 2021 kick, Anne MacPhail and Ned Rice to the curb. That's an option. It is on, Don't take it. So if they get the right guy like it was Theo Epstein. I think we'd all take one more year of this craft to get Theo have CNN here. The problem is, what's the motivation? There? Is it to get the right person. Is it a good process to let one more your play out or they pinch pennies over there? Minute. They you know why clinic wasn't fired. Is that a play on money? That's why they let them hang out in the building because he has a contract for two years. I just wonder how much of this is there bleeding money. You had me get you that we played the cut Last sign of Middleton talking about how you tell me how many fans we could have. It seems like they just want to not pay anyone extra for a year and then they'll figure it out a year from now, and that's that's their prerogative. But I mean, they could finish in last place next year if J T walks or Dede walks and they don't spend this offseason They could finish in last place next season. Yeah, I mean, I don't know where you know, Braced are for kind of brought up and I think it was almost inflammatory towards the front office. But he brought up the idea of you need to develop arms right if you're going to have a good bullpen. Need to develop guys. You can't buy a good bullpen right? Because well, early pictures are notoriously fickle. And as a result, you need 10 12 15 guys capable of going out there and give you quality innings for a month at any given time. Phillies don't have three.

"Sport brief coming up, then Tommy Lew Gower in the House. We'll talk a little basketball later will go inside the bubble with Jared Greenberg of TNT. But last night in what has been just a lot of serial stuff, we had the home opener for the New York Yankees and the person who sang the national anthem and did a marvelous job and then call the game. Is our next guest. You'll hear later today when the Yankees played the Red Sox again, and that is Susan woman, Susan. How you doing? I'm great. Did I just hear you called Thomas Jefferson T. J? That's right. I have a little nickname for I also called Teddy Roosevelt Tr to as well, T. I didn't know you knew them. That's yes, I'm on a nickname basis with the President. No, you read of those circles. Good for you. Can you introduce me? I love you. Well, he's fascinating elapse. Absolutely. Absolutely. While I was on vacation because I was saying this before Joe and I tried to get all our vacations out of the way because we knew they'd be this avalanche of sports. I just wanted to read as much as I could. About random things I was reading about the New York Highlanders, the Yankees from prehistoric days and Thomas Jefferson was a good balance of things to read about while I was sitting around doing nothing. I love all those things. I read every everything about everybody loved biography. So I read all those, so I probably read that one too high. Just love that. So tell me because I thought this was really cool. Tell me the story. So you said you saw Garret Cole years ago. When you kind of made this agreement on. Well, this this is I'll tell you how this all started because it's a really long story. But we got nothing to do with the when, when Garrett was drafted. By the Yankees. They had a conference call and was on a speakerphone in the old stadium and I was standing with, I believe was Damon Oppenheimer, the head of scouting and I heard him on the phone. He was a high school kid, and I'm listening to him, and this kid was area died and said all the right things, and at one point, I turned too, I think was Damon and I said He's not coming here is going to school, and David said, No, no, no, We're kind of in the long run. It's gonna be great. It's got ice. I'm telling you, he's going to school. I'm telling you, he's going to school, and he did because it was something that he neglected to say, and it went on. But he was so good and so delightful that nobody really got. Everybody's writing it down and all that. And I remember saying he's going to school. I'm telling you right now. And when I met him years later in Pittsburgh and brain, I told him the story. That he that I knew that he wasn't coming because of one thing that he didn't say and because they all say I can't wait to put the uniform on at some point in the press conference. Every single kid I've ever heard in a press conference, always says that our conference call and he never said it, he said. I love the Yankees and we knew about the world. Sara and we know everything in the world, Siri's and all that stuff, But he never said I can't wait to put the uniform on and I said he's going to school, so I told him that story, and we just came to start talking because he's besides being one of the best pitchers on the planet. He saved a life. I mean, he's just He's interested in everything and knew everything about everybody. He's one of the guys that I bet reads the media guide about all of the announcer so they know he knows who they are and what they did. Was. There was no reason for him to even know what I did. And I guess it was last year in the Houston clubhouse. We were talking and about all kinds of things, and I said, You know, whenever you get here you are gonna make a great Yankee And he said, Well, if I come here, you have to promise to sing the national anthem on on opening day, and I said, Yeah, sure, Great. And at the press conference when he came, he came overto, sweetie and me And the first thing he said, no. Don't forget your promise. What wasn't exactly as we Had planned it, but we did it and I was thinking I had never sung that the anthem in the new stadium and I don't think I have sung it live since I was on radio, So I used to do it all the time. I probably sunk 1000 times and I had not sung it in public, probably for 15 years, and that sort of hit me if I was standing there As they were introducing. Because there I was. Yeah. So it was kind of interesting. It was it was. It was a nice moment for May I I really was. I needed that right about now. It was very cool. Did you going into it? Will you nervous at all? He didn't hit you until you started singing that you hadn't done it a long time. No, no, no, I don't get nervous. Once I start singing. You know, I think of all these things, and then I was saying because I'm so I'm in another generation altogether. I'm thinking, you know if I screw up, there's nobody here. It doesn't matter. There's no one in that thing was all over every social media outlet in the entire world. And I know I totally forgot that there's Twitter and tweets and facetime and Facebook and it was everywhere. So if I had screwed up, it would have been awful. And I'm thinking You know if it's not so good, No one's going to know the players are going to be here. You know, they don't hit 1000 and there's no fans here, so nobody's going to board will be fine. But it was very surprising. It's surprising how how things that you can't do anything unnoticed anymore. And that was look. Everything was on TV. That was what was cool about it. We saw the introductions, the honoring of the first responders CC. How was it, you know, and we obviously none of us listening myself. We haven't been in the building for any of these games. How is it? You know, watching a baseball game, calling a baseball game when you don't have the emotion of the crowd and the people around you. Well, you know, for me, it's not, you know, because I've got headsets on anyway. And it's you know, I don't I don't feed necessarily off a crowd. I think the players do you know you can A lot of the players will say, Aiken bring my own Garrett cold. I bring my own focus in my own emotion, because that's how you know people are in any kind of entertainment business. You know, this is your This is who you are. So you bring your own joy and you bring your own kind of off left. I'll tell. I'll tell you that the first game, John and I did when we were the stadium and they were in Washington. That was really odd, because you know you can't see it. At least here. You can see the players and you can see them in the in the club Giancarlo Stanton when he had his first home run, and we're alone in Yankee Stadium, John and me and Jack Maldonado were along there, and I immediately looked into the Yankee dugout to see who would be the 1st 1 up to congratulate standin. There was no one there. That's really weird. Doing a game alone in a dark stadium and they're in another city. Yeah, Yeah, Yesterday was, you know it's tough in the first place. You don't know these red socks on and there are, you know, kind of a mess right now, Andi. It's obviously you know, not that not the same, but you know it is baseball in people are watching it, and I've been listening to other broadcast. And broadcasters to me of and I know, I don't know if you agree broadcasters, I think are doing a brilliant job and any time that that a team is on the road, the home broadcasters air sitting alone there sitting alone, either in the stadium, Joe Castiglione and Will Fleming do their games had family part by themselves. And you know, and the team is here, and he's sitting alone in a dark Fenway park. It can't be easy to dio. It's no. I give all the broadcasters.

"The fan I am Susan Waldman up in New York and down in Florida is my partner of the morning how we rose and Ian I think is in Birmingham are somehow or something the head of amateur starting for the New York Yankees is our buddy Damon Oppenheimer who is playing baseball Damon and who are you looking at yeah I am I'm in Hoover Alabama which is basically the suburbs of Birmingham and I met a two thousand in twenty one showcase for high school kids for next year's draft that going on and it's got twelve teams in about three hundred players that have rocked and rolled through here since Wednesday and eight AM till ten o'clock at night the whole time so it's a busy busy time while you find anybody yeah it looks like it's going to be a good class for next year so pretty excited about it but it's just been great to see baseball that's for sure yeah I was gonna ask you David is it almost cathartic to do what you're kind of built to do and haven't been able to for so long yeah it's it's been it's definitely been a while the judgment for us you know watching games has always been what we've done and what I've done it the employers with your you know with your eyes and you know they sure haven't changed to a lot more video and a lot more just zoom calls things I think I've become an expert on those kind of those kind of things now so yeah it's totally different my wife and I looked at it the other day and it was like we had never experienced this many days together in the entirety of our marriage because of that so it's consecutive days yeah it's working out great I'm sure all right to use for me to go on the road I'll bet I'll bet you you know I it's funny because I want to talk about our picks because we haven't gotten to to talk to you about the Yankees Austin wells in Arizona now this this this catcher you're really good at hot drafting people out of high school that don't side like Gerrit Cole and you keep in touch with them and and evidently you did this with Austin wells also you kept in touch with his father and all that after he decided to go to Arizona because you've drafted this kid before yeah you know or or whenever we we try not to ever close any doors and we saw a good player in Austin wells at a high school kind of made it clear to us that it was gonna be really rough to sign him out of high school but it's like a let's build this relationship where we took him in the draft out of high school made it made it very doable and then you know just being that open the door and being around him all summer in Cape Cod where I was up there she got that leak helped helped with the relationship too and I I really think it does matter battered with Gerrit Cole so I think it's it's something not to get that to get your feelings hurt when they say no to you the first time because you never know when it's gonna come around come around again Damon is it is it difficult to do the job that you do assess talent when their ability to display it has been skewed the way it's been it's not a normal spring for them it's not a situation where they're progressing at the rate they normally would does the kind of up and down nature of their ability to play this year factor into how you assess them at all it definitely made it a challenge and I it was it was it was hard and it was and it was hard on the on the kid because you know they a lot of them showed us where they were starting last summer last fall and you're hoping to get the product finishing off in the spring and see where they were in terms of growth and strength and maturity and it just weren't able to see that so it was a little it was unfair for them in this in this class but we did the best we could it's oftentimes we get video we get these wild video sometimes from places where there were three guys were throwing and lighting up the radar gun and you have to ask yourself is that the right baseball is a lighter baseball you you're always a little skeptical now I learned I learned to be a little bit of a skeptic from citizens and my good friend stick Michael when it came to the victims thank you that was one of the things like are we really seeing that on these you know some of these radio so it did make it tough you know I'm I'm glad you brought up stick before we get back to the Pixar cells because how he was a good friend of St Michael too and we all learned so much from him and I know he was a great mentor geo and all he just thought you were the the best and I remember even when I first met you how we how we stick was always saying that that you know they had just watching just watching and you really what do you always stick and what did you learn from Jean Michel besides what you just told us I mean I love him I love traveling with them I I was I was so fortunate at my age and we were on such a great run where we do the others are dance the dance work and other postseason teams and I get to spend hours and hours with them and I told him I got I can scout with you but I can really be a really good traveling secretary pledged to us afterwards and all all that stuff for the both of us it and he was he was just so insightful he taught me that it was really really really important to have relationships and get information from people that you trust it and he had such good relationships with our throughout the major leagues and he'd he'd find information that that helps helps us make things put together an advance report his eyes for his eye for talent he was ahead of the game everybody talks about money ball in on base percentage and all of those kind of things being you know a Moneyball Oakland A.'s thing and it was stick was well before that Nick was preaching that to me when we were out scouting about on base percentage being so important being able to walk and being able to work account and I think you saw that most teams that we had during that great run where we get starting pitchers out of the game because he creates that you know taking pitches get beeping counts and it was just ahead of his time and he was just he was just such a great guy to work with you know Damon and Susan between Susan and me we probably have been watching baseball for and I'm not exaggerating the combined total of about a hundred and twenty a hundred and twenty five years okay yet I've maintained that hi at least maybe Susan would include herself in this too could sit next to a game of major league games with the scale and see a completely different game than the scalpel would because you're trained to look at it in such a way that.

"It's it's a nice player tonight skillset but but with that little power can you be anything more than a soft regular <hes> it wasn't until the dodgers got him in and change the swing that he had the offense if profile of a star but i'm sure even knowing what i heard from areas scouts at the time of the draft to that there is a sense that one kid who work well was pro pitching coaching staffs and to this is a kid who we can bring in actually work with him on his swing and he's got the aptitude to be able to make that a very significant adjustment. You can see swings from him at louisville versus swings now. It's a pretty significant difference. Which is why i bought into the power spike last year when it seemed to be out of nowhere he went through a guy who was going to hit single digit home runs sudoku twenty-something basically over the over the course of one off season when we talk about the yankees and talk about the dodgers then casual baseball fans the first thing they think of is two teams with huge resources big market teams in preparing for sunday night and looking at the roster man is that just underscore the fact that there's a lot more to have these teams are rated than money first off the diamonds in the rough so that these two teams have found you know matt's muncie chris taylor on the yankee side jew or shelhah michael talk men voight and the dodgers drafting oh my god even as they've had these great successful years playing the world series now repeatedly in two thousand fifteen walker bueller with what the twenty four th pick in the draft and then the next year you know you get <hes> gavin lost their number one prospect now he was the twentieth pick and then we'll smith smith was the thirty second pick third round that year dustin may top pitching prospect. He got picked and they are just hitting on player after player after player. Yeah they've done a really both. Those teams have gotten a lot of value particularly the yankees. I think particularly later in the draft which kind of damon oppenheimer thing for ten plus years finding the david robertson's of the world well past the tenth round with the dodgers the dodgers. They're one of the teams that i think when andrew friedman took over to beefed just up the analytics department substantially without taking anything away from scouting their scouting department at least on the amateur side is as big as maybe even slightly larger. I i think that was when <hes> friedman took over and those two staff you talk to people in that organization to talk more of the scouts. Thank you guys in on the analytic side. I but both sides when you talk to them. You can hear the way that those two departments work together in how they discussed players in how seamlessly dodger scouts they're. They're not the only organization but since we're talking about them i think they do a particularly good job of it where they're scouts are well-versed essentially in the vernacular of analytics and the i'm the converse is true too that the seem to understand that any decisions they make in the draft room going to involve input from both sides and i think i think that's probably a big part of their success especially in finding guys a little bit after the first the first round you're taking a new work bureau or was. He's turned out to be a lot better than we thought but he was famous. He'd been since high school. Gavin locks was definitely a first round. He goes scout. I went to see him. He was clearly. I now when you start finding dies after the first round to turn out to be a lot better than expected. That's where i start to ask right well. What's the process that this team is using. It might be different from what other teams using that could potentially explain this success and i think in the dodgers case it's the strong integration of both traditional scouting and analytics explains at least a lot of that success right i want to ask you about a couple of guys is off the pennant race radar.

They struck early. Which team do you think needs to get that big arm to win the world series right now? That's a good question and I think the needs part would have varying degrees if you're telling me of the available start is let's go stroman or Zach wheel or a bumgarner or <hes> you know a map boyd from Detroit you any one of those guys barring that they're or not pitching like a four or five would be a welcome sight at any of the teams including the New York Yankees including <hes> the Houston Astros Astros are intriguing to me because of <hes> you know with Brad Peacock has gone down and Wade Majlis emerging right most recently we know it's Very Lander Garrett Cole but they're in need and here you know their first place by six games over Oakland they could use a starter <hes> the Yankees on one hundred percent convinced that they're going to go out and get somebody to really you know just make them even not much harder to beat <hes>. I do believe that the Yankees go onto the world series the way it is right now the Yankees I think we're going to go back to Nineteen eighty-one Seventy eight rich and see a Yankee dodgers world series a lot of course can happen but <hes> the dodgers to me are just too good into deep and the Yankees are just only GonNa get better.

"To settle fields. So the Rockies now with two outs. Nobody on the top twelve. Kyle hendricks. Is now on in relief for the Cubbies. They have now used with Hendrix, eight pitchers in this game tonight, the Rockies of used six themselves the Rockies picked up a run in this game in the first and they were leading one nothing and the until the bottom of the eighth when the cubs were able to attack attack on a run to tie at one and one and here we are in the top twelve Rockies with a run on eight hits. They've committed one error the cubs with Ron six. No errors. So forth tonight. Ryan McMahon who is dangerous is at the plate for the Rockies right now. He gets a hold of one he can hit it. Along with a really wanna see I want to get into the Mets here in a second in terms of their general manager position. And some of the things Jeff wilpon said. When he met the assembled media before the Mets closed their season this past Sunday. But I really want to see the Rockies win this game. And get onto the next round of always had a soft spot in my heart for the Rockies as I worked in Denver for five years previously and was around the steam, and it was a part of their. Television team in the twenty five and twenty six seasons and. They've never won a divisional title. Of course, the club was their inaugural season. Was back in nineteen Ninety-three McMahon down the left field line. That's a can of corn and three up and three down for the rocks and their half of the twelfth here. Come the cubs with another chance to win it. But they've never wanted divisional title. Are they had a chance this year? And every time they've made the postseason. It has been as a wildcard in ninety five of course. And they played the Braves and they lost in in four games in that series. And then the next time they were in the postseason was when I was in Denver, and I was earning twenty seven season, which was very memorable the Rockies just to get into the post season that you had to play a game sixty three against San Diego. That was the Matt Holliday game. With slight at home plate was a game that I was at it was one of the most heart-stopping games I've ever been at but they they won that game. And then they swept the Phillies in the NFL divisional series and swept the Diamondbacks in the champions. Chip series. And then lost, of course, four straight to the Red Sox. They got back to the playoffs in twenty nine when they lost to the Phillies in the divisional series in four games. And then of course, last year they made it to the wildcard round is when they lost that game to Arizona. And now here they are in there. In their twenty six th season. Trying to beat the cubs and move onto the next round. And it's it's a one one as the cubs come up here on the the bottom of the the twelfth. And let me get to the Mets here for a second. Because. Jeff wilpon, as you know with the media before the game this past Sunday and talked. I thought it was good that will did meet with the media, first and foremost. He owed that to the fan base. I thought and. Wilpon said some interesting things. And it was a part of me. I mean, I've been very very critical of wilpon just like everybody else has. Because th that criticism is is more than justified based on the lack of results that this franchise has had ever since the wilpon owned the club singularly and on their own since twenty two. But before that, of course, they were part of the group with with Nelson Doubleday since since nineteen eighty, but I did it was a part of me that was thinking, and I'm hoping this is the case, and I've brought this up before on the show. I kind of analogize in a way to George Steinbrenner and the way that he was able to turn the public opinion about him. Around in the last fifteen sixteen years of his life. Interestingly the Yankees started getting better. When Steinbrenner started letting go the Yankees started getting better when Steinbrenner, you know, took his hands off the steering wheel. One out. Hey were just rounded out. Steinbrenner took a step back sorta trust this baseball people the suspension in in the nineties started this and then Jean-Michel one and the Yankees front office went to work and did some things that otherwise is doubtful. That would have been able to do of Steinbrenner had not been suspended. But when Steinbrenner came back he saw that his is organization was was making a significant turn and was in good hands. And we started to develop a host of of good players below the minor league system that would eventually go on to become a part of many Yankees winning teams. And and a couple of world championship teams as well. I found myself asking myself as I watched wilpon this past Sunday talking with the with the media. He was talking about bringing in. Someone threw on baseball operations for the Mets scramble. That's foul. I believe our Nado throws across the first. But it is a foul ball. I gotta say hate this. I hate they wanna spend. It's just I I don't normally do this. I do not normally keep a television on what I'm doing a show. It's just but the Rockies to win this game. I wanna I want to stay abreast of what's going on. Anyway, back to wilpon. He said some interesting things and said he wants to bring in a guy from outside the organization that is going to tell him what needs to be done. He's got to trust this person. And this person is going to have autonomy. Little fly ball shallow. Right. Doll comes in LeMay who out LeMay you makes a catch? That's actually Carlos Gonzales in right field now. So nice play by the former cub DJ will make you two outs. Nobody on for the Cubbies. Bottom of inning twelve at Wrigley. And so I'm wondering if wilpon can have is it in the cards for Jeff wilpon to to be able to let go under different circumstances. Then Steinbrenner was forced to let go, but his Jeff wilpon gonna be able to let go and bring somebody in that is going to be able to turn around the fortunes of ballclub and allow that person the kind of autonomy. That such an individual is going to have to is going to need in order to build a sustained winning product at city field and in doing that if it's possible for wilpon to let go. Does he have a chance to turn his own perception around much like the Steinbrenner did in the final as I said it was about fifteen sixteen years of his life? And when he owned the Yankees. The opportunity is there. For wilpon to do this. But it remains to be seen whether or not wilpon is going to be able to let go to the point of of allowing someone to have that kind of vision and autonomy to direct the Mets affairs from the time that person has hired and it gets, you know, gets into the process of of building that club, and and making some changes and making some revisions to produce the, you know, a regular and consistent winning product at the ballpark down and out in queens. Now who are the Mets going to hire? I mean, we've seen the names in the newspapers. I mean, there's a lot of people that have apparently are in the mix or are rumored to be in the mix one of them chagrined that with all these names, I read. One name. I have not read is Damon Oppenheimer who has been a key figure in the Yankees front office for a number of years now, and is a very well respected baseball executive and a guy who is thought to be a future general manager. Now, you know, he's under contract to the Yankees. I'm sure the Yankees the Mets would have to seek permission to speak to somebody like Damon Oppenheimer just like they'd have to seek permission to speak to anybody else. But why wouldn't you want to draw from an organization that has had the kind of consistency. In terms of putting winning teams on the field in a year after year basis, why wouldn't the Mets at least want to give a look see in the direction of somebody in the Yankees front office such as Damon Oppenheimer who again, it's it's been a big part a huge part of the Yankees front office for a number of years. And then there's another twist to this whole thing. And it's a long shot. But to me. If I'm Jeff wilpon. It's something that I I can't avoid it. I at least have to make a phone call. I at least have to make an inquiry to see if this is something that can that can materialize. Listen, and I say this kind of sarcastically. But at the same time, I guess, you know, something like this could happen. Oakland comes into Yankee Stadium tonight. I mean, would it makes sense to for Jeff wilpon to, you know, take a take a ride over to to the Bronx, go up into the press box say Hello to Billy bean and make overtures to Billy bean about perhaps wanting to come over to the Mets you say, Dino, if he didn't go to the Red Sox a couple years ago. Why would he go to the Mets? Well, things have changed since that time a lot of change since the Red Sox recording Billy bean back. Then Billy Bean's daughter was not full grown a yet. He wanted to be around his daughter his daughter's now in college. Okay. And who knows maybe Billy bean is looking for a different challenge at this point. Maybe Billy Bean's still there's somewhere, you know, in his bloodstream. There's still some Mets blood that strip on around the, you know, the first organization that ever employed him in professional baseball was the Mets. Why wouldn't you will go to Yankee Stadium and and say to Billy Beane Billy with what you've done? You know, listen, we'll pay you whatever you want. The capstone to your career. Listen you've done less job in Oakland. You've done a fabulous job in Oakland. All these years with the athletics. But an opportunity to come here to New York to put together a club to be maybe the capstone of your of your major league baseball career with a new challenge, something that's 'Reinvigorating. Would you know, we'll pay you whatever you want. Listen, if I'm Jeff wilpon, not only what I tell him. Not only what I tell Billy bean that'll pay him whatever he wants. I tell Billy dean list. We'll give you a piece of the team. We'll give you small percentage of the team if you wanna come over here. That's how committed we are to the stats are bad. We want to win. So, you know, listen again as I said, it's a long shot. I don't think that being wouldn't listen because I think he would. And as I said before it is completely different situation. Now when beans life is compared to John Henry after we bought the Red Sox was courting of Billy Beane changed a lot of change. So would be interested. I mean, you're not gonna get an answer. The ask. And there's been a lot of names that have been mentioned. But in terms of you know, talking about credibility talking about someone who's been there and done that talking about somebody who's got on established track record talking about somebody who's got the respect of the entire baseball. Major league baseball community, then a committee better than Billy bean. So I would listen to phone wilpon of taking I'm taking a Nubia ride over to the stadium later tonight at least a shaken hands and Santa load of Billy bean of San, hey, Billy before you make plans for twenty nine thousand nine can we have a conversation? I know you're busy now with the as here tonight at the stadium with your club. But, you know, something at some point in this off season, you know, before we make a determination. We'd like to pitch you on a few ideas. And just see what Billy bean might say. So. All right. Scott Goldberg comes out of the rocks. Bullpen and gets a strike out of Kris Bryant to end the cubs twelfth. So on to the thirteenth, they go the Rockies and the cubs at Wrigley. So still keeping my eyes on on this game. Here..

To you There is only one way to fix this team and match to bring in a strong willed strong thinking baseball man to run this whole, team, let, wilpon, give, him a budget let him They added my way let him bring in his own people takes this broken scouting system, the broken minor league system the broken Cowan evaluation. System and the laughing stock of. A team Tweak this team, training to Guam the match will get on dress trading anybody else Syndergaard the Mets who. Gets swindled I was scared to. Death that Brian Cashman would undressed, the Mets medicine any trading guy, make decisions on I have a guy. In mind Damon Oppenheimer sure. Sure I mean he certainly deserves that, opportunity here's the problem is Jeff wilpon willing to bring somebody in and. Hand the reins over of this franchise to that said person because at times in your phone call you were describing sandy Alderson and when he took over for this franchise and I think we've all speculated that that really came from the Commissioner's office that. Bud Selig was the one that basically play sandy and charging it felt at. Times as if the Mets organization was improving under sandy Alderson and they certainly. Had some success the embarrassments were kept to a smaller amount at times. Than. In the. Past and, now it feels as if it's, gone back in a full circus mode. And I don't know because you can't. Tell an owner what to do. Right, I've tried I mean I opened the show basically saying I need. To hear from Jeff wilpon I don't need to hear from Oman I. Deal from these other guys boy. It's tough to tell and own Owner hire somebody and get the heck out of the way. Do. I agree. That's best, for this franchise yeah and the, other reason it's really important is a. You gonna be able to attract a. Strong executive if they're not gonna. Be, able to have that full autonomy It's gonna be difficult and that's why the met job may not be the most appealing job in the world let's, go to Alex and Newark hey Alex How you doing I'm all right, what's, up So, so unfortunate with all of these right now but you just have to, think maybe it's? Gonna come back. Device arena Have been, just awful I think it hurts him I mean this was the seventh rain out so, far this season seven of them and I think we're it's really difficult, more so.
