Oh by going to jinx pod DOT com slash contributors. This is a story bigger than just I sports. It is a mystery that remains unsolved. It is the tale of why a country will keep secrets to themselves. Even even if it doesn't seem to be in their best interest some of you might be familiar with the former baseball player. David Ortiz. He's a big guy which is important in this story about six four around two hundred and forty pounds with a huge smile he goes by the nickname. Oh big PAPI. Born in the Dominican Republic David Ortiz played in Major League Baseball from Nineteen Ninety seven to two thousand sixteen. He became a household name while in Boston. Winning three World Series Championships with the Red Sox. He is a surefire hall of Famer over the course of his career he made more than one hundred and sixty million dollars and as famous as Ortiz is in America Particularly in Boston. He is a hero in his home. Country of the Dominican Republic so. Everyone was stunned donned when this happened during the summer of two thousand nineteen. We begin with Red Sox. Legend David big PAPI Ortiz recovering. This morning after he was shot brought in the back this at a nightclub in his native Dominican Republic this morning Dominican authorities are calling the plot to shoot love baseball star. David Ortiz us a fist educated decatur and coordinated hit investigators are trying to determine whether Ortiz was the intended target. This man somebody to shoot this man and the back. You're talking about a Guy Max extent this philanthropic very charitable with his time as energy is efforts particularly those in the Dominican Republic. I've continued to wonder why it was a star. Like big PAPI in what turns out the crosshairs of gang. How is it possible that people still don't know if he really was the target target? What really happened? June ninth two thousand nineteen David Ortiz walks into the bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo Dominican Republic dl bars a spot for government officials all celebrities pro athletes and other elites to be seen. Big PAPI is dressed in white pants and hanging out with some friends including a well known on TV host and a reggae tone artist surveillance cameras capture man approaching Ortiz from behind. This man takes out a gun and fires one shot. The bullet hits Ortiz in the back at close range and chaos ensues one one of the men involved in the shooting but not the shooter tries to flee he jumps on his motorcycle and starts to drive away but before he gets far a mob of of people swarmed him they drag him off the bike and start to pummel him until police arrive and he is arrested. That's the power and fame aim were teas- has in the Dominican. You mess with him. You mess with everyone. I spoke with two well-known reporters who traveled to to the Dominican Republic to write comprehensive stories on what happened the love for David. Ortiz is a met. This is Danny Gold. Who wrote the broken case of David Ortiz for sports illustrated? You know this is a guy who like Michael Jordan getting shot in Chicago. If Michael Jordan spent spent most of his time doing fundraisers for children's hospitals you know in pediatric surgery wings and just donating everything he could to everyone around there. Everyone loves David Ortiz. He's you know you meet random people who were like. Yeah you know. He bought equipment for my cousin's baseball team. Mike he doesn't even know them or my friend's daughter. got a surgery that you needed because of David like this guy was a national hero in a level that I don't think we see too much sports figures not just because he was good at the game people loved him but because he did so much good for the people there by the time Ortiz arrived at an upscale clinic. His situation was growing more dire. He was losing blood fast and was in critical condition beyond that the scene at the clinic was a circus. Word of the incident spread quickly. Crowds started started to gather inside the waiting. Room was filled with Ortiz's entourage. A woman who reportedly had an affair with Ortiz came in crying back and then there was Ortiz lying on a gurney bleeding while police were taking his statement as one of the top doctors in the country. Dr Jose Abella Gonzales assess the injury. He found that the bullet had done severe damage to many of teases organs. Dr Gonzales and his his team removed or cheeses gallbladder a segment of his liver and large intestine and repair small intestine. Finally after four and and a half hours of surgery or teases condition stabilized the next day Ortiz left the country flying in an air ambulance provided rated by the Boston Red Sox at the Massachusetts General Hospital. He got further treatment on June eleventh. Ortiz's wife Tiffany announced. He underwent another surgery and was in the ICU. Back in the Dominican authorities began. I'm trying to piece together the events of the night. Eddie Felice Garcia. The man attacked by the mob immediately after the shooting was arrested as it turns out he had been driving the motorcycle which the shooter was a passenger on. After Garcia arrived in court the investigation expanded authorities identified six more people to their list of suspects including the shooter twenty-five-year-old Rossi Farah crews. There was no lone gunman here. This was a hit team and the list of people involved kept growing nine people eleven people cruise. The shooter originally told police. He didn't mean to shoot Ortiz. But somebody else. Investigators publicly scoffed at this clearly. Crews knew he'd be dead man in prison. If fellow inmates knew he had attempted to kill the great David Ortiz but it eight days later on June seventeenth the authorities pulled a one eighty the attorney general of the Dominican Republic announced that the shooting thing was a case of mistaken identity with the intended target. Being a man by the name of Sixto daffyd Fernandez Sixto Dovey Need Fernandez is a friend of Ortiz and was sitting next to her tease the night of the shooting according to government investigators the reason Fernandez was targeted. He had rented out a Narko that Narko was upset and ordered the hit on Fernandez. That leaves gives the obvious question. Why do the trigger man shoot Ortiz? According to authorities one man on the hit team arrived to the bar early early to vet the location and get a photo of the target when Sixto Davi Fernandez arrived. This man on the hit team snapped a blurry photo of sixto on his phone. But here's the thing if you look at the photo a certain way it seems as if sixto was wearing white pants when he was in fact wearing black pants who was wearing white pants David Ortiz. So this man on the hit team sent this picture sure to an inmate at a local prison who then sent it to another suspect involved who then showed the picture to the other suspects including one man known as the surgeon and and other cohorts with names like the bone and Carlos Nike. The hit team arrived at the bar. Soon after and seeing Ortiz's uses white pants shot him. At least that's what authorities have told us what happened and if we were to believe this is what happened. Spend the next question is who was it. That ordered these guys to kill Fernandez and why who was the Narko that believe Fernandez Sunday had read it to police time to meet Victor Hugo Gomez Vasquez. He was the one that the police say actually initiated. This whole thing here again is Danny Gold. And Victor is a drug trafficker he's aligned. I believe with the Gulf cartel he was wanted in the states in an operation uncalled. Operation Wrecking Ball involving dozens of people trafficking large amounts of drugs from Mexico into the US. The official police story is that Victor. Who is actually six? Does cousin had hired a man to assemble a team to carry out this attack. Victor believed that his cousin Sixto. Oh had betrayed him telling the police about his drug trafficking seems pretty simple right. A team is hired to take out a guy for narking to the police but there are problems with the story. Certain things. Just don't add up. I there's this idea that it was a case of mistaken identity Maliki remember David Ortiz's about six four two hundred and forty pounds so it led most to initially think that Fernandez must look a similar to Ortiz. Well said Danny Gold if you see David and six Oh next to each other David is large. He's dark skinned helix. Nothing unlike six. Oh six though is a light skinned guy far smaller than David Ortiz. So that's one issue unless the shooter was only looking for anyone with white pants. Is it possible he really thought David was sixto another issue. The reason victor wanted to shoot sixto is not totally believable. Reportedly Victor was blaming Sixto for narking to the police for something that happened in two thousand eleven. Two thousand eleven. Why would you suddenly seek out retribution for something that happened eight years prior so reporters seeing that some things? Just don't add up that the case isn't so clear cut are trying to figure out what happened. There were whispers that perhaps the target wasn't fact Ortiz and if that's it's the case reporters and the general public are wondering why would someone want or ts taken out. What is clear is that the hit team had ties ties to organized crime was Ortiz? Somehow somehow involved with the narcos well the journalists who attempted to find out out. We're running into a road block for a simple reason. It was interesting because what I found was that in a way like talking about Ortiz talking about for people to talk about how they felt especially to a foreign reporter is was kind of like them talking about their own country Daniel. Castro spent ended about two weeks in the Dominican Republic writing an article for the bleacher report called. It was a confusion the shooting of David Ortiz was like them talking about the Dr and he's such a sacred figure that to say something negative or took question this sort of perfect reputation. RT's has there it. Would he like questioning your patriotism. It's very proud country. And he is a national symbol. So I I think. His brand there is is kind of synonymous with the country. Because he's he's one of the most famous if not the most famous representative at this point. Additionally if anyone did believe the Nar ghosts were involved and spoke on the record word then they may end up having to deal with some not so pleasant people so people were very protective of Reputation and other people were were very wary of getting involved in any way with the people who might have been behind the attack at the time and I have friends on the island who just would not see because they were like you know. I have kids I'm not gonNA tell them the central Mingo being with you. Just just out of caution. It's a small island So at the beginning when I first got my few days I was sort of. Like what did I get myself into Because no really no. No one wanted to talk to me. So reporters are having a tough time getting more facts mainly because nobody will talk. But it won't stop Daniel Castro Danny Gold and other journalists from at least trying to get to the bottom of things both Daniel and Danny did a remarkable job job of finding people who would talk on the record. Daniel Castro even spoke to Fabian. Mellow the former head of anti-narcotics at at the Santo Domingo DA's office probably a mellow thought that if someone wanted to do something that's not as it went super easy just to go over to his body shopper. Here here Castro talks about how had the hit team wanted to kill Sixto Fernandez. They could've likely made life easier on themselves. He owned a body shop or an auto detailing shop and he was very much like easy to find. He was in his shop all the time. He wasn't like he was living in a really ritzy area of central Mingo Ingo so it was really strange to mellow that. An assassination attempt of this magnitude with this many people involved. I think it ended up being you know. Fourteen people cool in jail with target this regular guy at this nightclub on a Sunday night in a very public way surrounded by all these people. It was just very strange to him. And that's why I think he had trouble buying that version just like a lot of other people so that already makes it hard to believe that the intended target it was really Sixto David Fernandez. Then there is another reason the security footage from the bar that night said Danny Danny Gold. This other guy involved with the hit squad. This guy knows Mota is sitting there in the bar and if you watch the video David gets hit everyone everyone else gets up and runs away. Mota is right. There calmly gets up sips. His beer puts it down. If you're involved with the hit squad that that acts the daily shoots the most famous person in your country whose beloved by everyone. You'd think there would be a different reaction. Even if you knew a hate was coming you shoot the wrong guy. Like that's your head on the line right there so that's one of the things that just does add up to me so that's two reasons that suggest Sixto David Fernandez is was not the man the narcos wanted dead but are there any reasons to believe that the intended target wasn't fact David Ortiz News. Rodney dangerfield once said Ed. I told my dentist. My teeth are going yellow. He told me to wear a brown tie. Anyway I have to say rarely. Is there an ad that I can say.

I know what you're thinking insurance literally literally the last thing you WanNa hear about right now but hold on as it turns out.

And you get a policy not a quote but a policy in just ninety seconds. There's no paperwork. No agents know brokers because after all were now in the twenty first century get it at lemonade dot com slash. What really happened so it can be hard to believe? Sixto David Fernandez was really the target but is there any reason to believe the intended target was is in fact David Ortiz there. Are I think a few reasons that at least leave that option open. If our tease was the target most familiar with the shooting. Believe that means this was not a hit called. For by Victor Hugo Gomez Vasquez instead most point their finger here to a more powerful more dangerous drug trafficker Cesar Emilio Peralta also known as Caesar. The Abuser Sir said Danny Gold Cesar Emilio Peralta is this underworld legendary figure that I kept hearing about when I was doing this reporting. And and he's what they call in the Dominican Republic a Capo referred to as the top level drug traffickers. And he's just this guy that everyone thinks is the atop trafficker on the island who's been arrested a number of times for for drug trafficking for you know violence and he always gets off. So legend has it that he's super well-connected till very high level people in the government and when David got shot and everyone initially thought that that he was the target. Very few people. You could pull something like this off and get away with it. And Caesar's name just kept coming up someone that maybe You know there was a woman in in between the two of them. Maybe there was a a money laundering issue involved. And he's just this guy who seemed to pull out of strings and be very violent and vindictive so maybe there was a woman involved oft it's impossible to not do some basic digging around and see that there have been a plethora of rumors even reports that this is the case in in fact the woman that reportedly both Cesar Ortiz had an affair with showed up at the hospital. The Night Ortiz was shot. But if it wasn't a love triangle goal involving big PAPI and the abuser. Could it be a business. Transaction Gone Awry when Daniel Castro who wrote that groundbreaking article for bleacher. The report was out in the Dominican Republic. He spoke with someone who otherwise hadn't opened up to the American press Daniel Po. He's a security expert expert in the Dominican one of the prominent criminologists on the island. I would say po had information that tied Peralta Aka. Caesar the abuser. You too big PAPI in Ortiz lived in the same apartment building which doesn't mean anything but polk said that there were reports that the that they were. Actually you know fairly early close in the end. When sesame lapidoth overcome from trips abroad he would like bring Ortiz's kids presents and things like that? This leaves me with all sorts of questions. That's how did they become friends in the first place. And what was it that drove a wedge between the two Castro discover that there was a nightclub called but forty forty. It's not Jay Z.. Nightclub but a club big PAPI opened in the Dr. Although the club had prices meant for the rich and famous it was not in an upscale neighborhood. Quite the opposite so Castro went looking for people who knew of this nightclub which under big PAPI's ownership closed several years ago. Castro met Fabio Mello. Fabien Melo is a former prosecutor in central Mingo goal and he was in charge of the Anti Narcotics Division. Castro learned quite a bit from mellow including the fact that you need a certain type of approval to run in a club in the area Ortiz had picked. It's difficult to imagine what he's opening something like this in this area and not having some sort of contact with criminal groups that have other nightclubs weather. It's because his club is basically in competition with theirs. Or because like hey you know just some even minimal contact it it. Just it was really hyper mineral to imagine that there was zero kind of contact with these groups for that reason and it wasn't just mellow Castro also met a man who went by Matteo WPRO Matteo was familiar with the country's cocaine trade and spent three years in prison on drug charges of Matteo said it was a misunderstanding. Mateo had had actually he knew this area new. The dynamics of it really well he had party at the club. He told me that he remembers vividly. Being at the club and the club was full of not goes full of drug traffickers who had control or really powerful area and it was kind of a place for them to show their power to be clear. One one can only speculate. These are not hard facts that create a direct line suggesting Ortiz somehow. Owed Caesar the abuser or other narcos. But it's hard to see how our tease could attend much less own a nightclub that was frequented by narcos without having to be some kind of business with them. Daniel Castro emphasized this point. I don't think anybody really thinks that he was that. He was involved in some kind of criminal activity. I think it's more just about like who is hang out with an and the network that he was in and I think one of Poe's points was that once you start associated with people in this world any kind of false move or any kind of action or public it just becomes really easy to interpret something about a certain gesture or or you're talking to a club that maybe isn't there you know. And that's why I think his opinion was that there's so many possible causes for how this could have happened bins that it could have been anything just just from the fact of you associated with these people to better understand this story. It's important to take a step back back and look at context like many parts of the world. In the Dominican Republic there is a massive trust issue that citizens and journalists have with authorities said Danny gold this situation in the Dominican Republic is there's a lot of corruption and people do not trust the police especially in a lot of these neighborhoods that are a bit rougher that have petty street crime. They're used to the police taking extra judicial action perhaps being violent being corrupt and they used the government being like that too so so there isn't a high level of trust in law enforcement there they don't trust the government they don't trust any story that's GONNA come out. This distrust in government goes back generations and with this case there is a specific reason that makes it even easier to be skeptical about what the government says happened. Authorities is particularly wanted to put this case away as soon as possible for one simple reason tourism so leading up to this there were these tourist is deaths in different resorts around the island of sort of mysterious. I mean that's that's where a lot of big tourist business comes from these kind of big the all inclusive resorts on the coast. It still hasn't been just a really straightforward reason or explanation has really emerged but some people said you know it. Was this hotel the liquor bottles that they drank in the mini bar or whatever combination of reasons. Also a woman was savagely beaten An American woman. We're talking about American tourists here beaten at a resort so there were these incidents that happened and it was. It was really tough time for the country's tourism industry. I think it's like eight percent of the GDP employs about three hundred thousand people. It's something like more than sixty eighty percent of these tourists. That come to the island. Are Americans the health of the tourism. Industry is tied into kind of stability of the ruling government. So it's a really serious tissue in fact I mean in July August of this past summer after your T.. Shooting not saying not shooting was fussell for this but flights from the US that have been acrylic. What were down by seventy four percent? I mean that's a huge blow that affects the livelihood of people not just in the tourism industry but everyone who makes their livelihood around it so I mean the stakes for the country's image at this point after the ot shooting were really high. And I think some of the tourism. I talked to tourism researcher who studies the Democratic. I mean it was pretty. It was like this definitely further affected the the country's imagine in a negative way so I mean the the the it was a crisis in the government was I was basically doing damage control at this point win the RT shooting habit a quick side note but as it turns out this image that the DR is particularly violent. Clint isn't exactly based on facts. Danny Gold brought this to my attention. Obviously the DR has problems with drug trafficking petty crime street crime things like that but it's murder rate is lower than a lot of places in the US. It's also lower than Uruguay and a vacation. Hotspot like Costa Rica so while the Dr Does have have some very rough neighborhoods drug crime things of that nature. It actually. Isn't this all encompassing violent. Place regardless the point for our intentions here is that there was going to be a distrust in whatever narrative the government gave for the shooting and in my opinion there was one avenue the government could take to hopefully alleviate any concern from tourists. Say that the shooter was attempting to kill a man for retribution. A man who it done the narcos wrong until the world. Nobody was actually trying to shoot the most beloved man in the country. Not only that but tell the world you got all of the people responsible danceable behind bars. If any government is looking to protect their image. It'd be naive to think they wouldn't at least consider this approach. The Good Ole cover up Daniel. Castro spoke about this with one of his sources former prosecutor. Fabienne Mellow when I asked asked him. If he really thought that the prosecutor's office was capable of this kind of cover up us very direct and he said yeah absolutely especially especially because of what was happening with the country's tourism industry in the country's image that he thought they were definitely capable of kind of manipulating the investigation to not further harm. Ortiz or the Dominican Republic's image as most of us have found out the hard way getting into debt is easy getting out is hard especially if your credit score is in great thankfully thankfully now there's upstart dot com the revolutionary lending platform.

David Ortiz was is released from the hospital after seven weeks of recovery Rehab and more surgeries on September ninth. Two Thousand Nineteen almost almost three months after he was shot. Ortiz returned to Fenway Park to throw out the first pitch with Kanye. West's Jesus walks playing thing in the background. Big PAPI received a standing ovation. Won't you please welcome the symbol of Resilience Strength Triumph and love our our one and only big Papi Red Sox Hall of Famer Number Thirty Four David Ortiz Ortiz also hired his own private investigators to look into the shooting. And who was behind it these private investigators eaters concluded what police investigators found that it was a case of mistaken. Identity Danny Gold. Who wrote that? Sports illustrated article said he has gone back and forth on what to really believe but he remains confused about one thing. If for t's really believes leaves it was a case of mistaken identity. Then why is he doing. The following David has done some interviews since the shooting and he is still nervous. It seems like there's a part of him that does think that he was targeted. That somebody wants to kill him so apparently you know he's really rescinded. Back from from public life he was known in the. Dr Is a guy who went. It's all over. You know he was in bad neighborhoods. He was at the bars with a narcos. Hang out. Were the REGGAE tone artist. Hang out places that a lot of rich folks. A A lot of other baseball players wouldn't go because he was just the guy that was so loved that he thought he was good wherever he went. Didn't have security nothing like that and now it seems like he's going to be a a lot more cautious moving forward so make of that what you will no one. There really expects it to ever be solved. It seems clear that if anything the the mystery remains in fact Danny noticed several popular memes in the Dominican Republic mocking the idea that the truth will ever for be revealed. Someone that means going around there was one with an astronaut in space. You know like walking out in space with like the little tube attached to him where it was like this is another one of the suspects. David Ortiz In the David Ortiz shooting another was. You're not a real Dominican unless you've been arrested in the investigation David Ortiz's shooting thing another had a genie show up and there is a day making guy asking him for all these wishes and the genius. I can't do that. That's one thing I can't do and his third wish is like okay. Tell me what really happened with. The David Ortiz shooting and the genie goes okay. Both those other wishes that you had for now re don't know what really happened. The government Vermont seems to have everyone in custody including the ringleader. Victor Hugo Gomez Vasquez in fact on Monday December. Second Caesar Caesar the abuser was also arrested in Columbia. There was no mention of big hobby. Caesar was reportedly arrested on a warrant charging him with cocaine in heroin distribution as for David Ortiz. I think it's important with all of the rumors and reports to not judge him. Here is Danny Gold with the last word. Even the people who believed that David was the target. Still don't think any less of him. You know they still to look at him as this guy who has done so much. Good that even if something went wrong with any of these other issues it doesn't negate the positive things he's done for the country in their eyes and there's some folks who also say you know. Even if David wasn't the target he was still out there. Hang out with narcos hanging out. Really shady eighty nightclubs spots. But the thing is that David came from those neighborhoods. You know these were the people he grew up around. These were the only other people who made it out and got money like he did so. I really don't think you can. You can blame him for who he chose to associate with or the kind of spots that he went to at night So I don't want to come off as a thing where you know. People are looking down at David Ortiz. This is a guy who really dedicated himself to doing as much good as he could next week on what really happened. Anna Sarokin. A German heiress was in her early twenties. She was living in Trendy New York City hotels and traveling around in the big gospels elite social circles but in reality she was a fraudster and when Anna went to court and then prison. We were all left wondering what really happened. If you like the podcast I humbly ask. You subscribe rate and review. It actually can make a big difference for any other feedback.

Authorities now on the hunt for a motive and one more suspect police believe was involved in this ambush. It only takes a few seconds to see just how close baseball legend David Ortiz came to dine what makes this. So shocking is the David Ortiz is used to walking these streets, a would be assassin closing in on the unsuspecting forty three year old from behind firing.

And so when you see this happen, it's such a shock. He's sitting there with some others. Some of walks up behind him bang. Shoots the alleged gunman takes off to caught on multiple surveillance cameras. The suspects were first cornered by furious citizens, four days later, the accused shooter ralphie crew.

But Ortiz's path to greatness was Iraqi one in two thousand and three. The Red Sox took a chance on the obscure first baseman, who had just been released from the Minnesota Twins signing him as a free agent just a year later in a comeback for the book. Colder. He would lead the Red Sox to their first World Series championship in eighty six years, and the rest was history, nicknamed big Papi. He would lead the Red Sox to two more championships. The slugger hitting more than five hundred career home run. Joining the ranks of baseball legends like they've Ruth. Mickey Mantle and Reggie Jackson. Mob. Aw. Big papi? Let's do this earning endorsements from Dunkin donuts on the radio and turbo tax dislike that leaving going undercover as a lift driver other players. Arne other players. Surprising fans in Boston. David Ortiz, also became a recurring bit on SNL portrayed by Keenan Thompson. Moi began he to sort of be poppy personified, Boston strong after the marathon, bombings. Versing that we were today. He doesn't say Red Sox. He say Boston in a defining moment, he helped to pull the city back together. Seeding? You're going to pay for them. In two thousand sixteen after fourteen seasons with the Red Sox Ortiz retired from baseball in a ceremony. The city would rename a street after him. This. A legend in Boston. But in his home country of the Dominican Republic, a hero known for helping more than eight hundred children get life saving heart surgery, in an interview with the player's Tribune and his humility that's shines through. I think the most important thing is thoughtful go, where you come from. I love gloom bike to my hometown and go on. And you say that, you know me. You know, some ball players they become rich. They become famous they don't go home anymore. That's not David Ortiz. He takes pride in being from Dominican Republic. He goes, he walks the streets. He talks to the people. They know him. He knows them that familiarity strikingly visible in the surveillance footage where Ortiz appears relaxed with no security guards and his back to the street. I will not sit anywhere when my back to, because I look around former NYPD detective Bodine has been protecting stars and athletes for decades, there gino's, the friend of mine, you have Alex Rodriguez is a friend of mine these people have to realize if it can happen to him and they're going to happen to them. Investigators say or teases would be assassins. Agreed to kill big Papi for less than eight thousand dollars. Perhaps it speaks to poverty. Maybe it's desperation that you could convince a group of at least a half dozen people to pull off a hit on one of the highest profile people in the Dominica. And Republic for less than eight thousand dollars. The alleged plan involved these two Hyundai's parked in front of one another one man getting out of one of the cars, a motorcycle nearby that motorcycle, the alleged getaway vehicle shown moments later with two men on it. Private down the street. Elliot's air Salvador rushed Ortiz to the hospital. Hill. Lumber pumping rolling them at the end of the region. He didn't even try model happy about. Police this morning. Displaying the handgun they say was used in the attempted hit job so far. The authorities in the Dominican Republic have arrested six people, including the suspected shooter. It turns out, he is also wanted in the say, county, New Jersey, just across the river from New York City on a series of armed robberies that date from 2017 this evening, five of the six suspects appeared in court, but little is known about why the group targeted or teeth, the big mystery and all of this is the motive, we know that these men or at least one of the men was paid to shoot David Ortiz. We don't know the motive why they did this. We may never really know how this attempted hit on. David Ortiz was coordinated Ortiz is not the first sports star to be attacked in recent years. Fellow Boston athlete Paul Pierce from the Boston Celtics survived being stabbed eleven times in two thousand and Washington Redskins free. Safety, Sean Taylor was shot and killed during a home invasion in two thousand seven incidents like these now forcing athletes across the country to step up their security. It is now becoming more prevalent. And now that you saw what just happened with this baseball player? It'll definitely increase tonight Ortiz is in recovery his daughter.

Just like didn't what's happening. You cave. Cave phone into this. Can do it. So you don't lose your voice in the first couple nights tour. It'd be back tomorrow. We'll do it all in both tomorrow's right? Oh. What was recently shot his fourth solo album to number two on I tunes, and now Rob's just days away from kicking off his newest tour. You know, his song like bright lights. The man behind some of the most memorable hits of the ninety. Including three AM but even those don't compare to his iconic smooth. With Carlos Santana. To this day, a crazy twenty years later remains billboards number two song of all time, even generating about a million on demand. Streams every week. Relationship with smooth and Carlos to where like, I, I'm fine if I never hear it again. But by love playing it. I was supposed to write the song and then Carlos heard my demo of me doing these will. I believe this guy does he does he sing. Just had a successful record with his matchbox music. Then let's just get that guy. You were that, that guy everywhere, else in the world where if you don't know, matchbox, twenty then when stink came out with desert rose. I'm the. There's Carlos and that guy and that guy, I've literally, I've been like in Greece. And I've had people come up and go like, so have you done anything, since then to, like, is there any career doors that are opening for you? We sold fifteen million records before smooth and hits. Like nobody cares with this profile elevated. He started writing for some of the biggest artists in the industry. Winning songwriting awards along the way, I wanted to display because I think it's good energy display things, but I didn't want to have them in my workspace. This is his home studio in New York. This magic happens it did hear that. He laid down all the vocals for chipped tooth smile. And you say the melody usually comes first and then the lyrics 'cause it's always like, like if you're writing if you do, and then you have just this like. You would just be like. Stead. And you keep going until, like, there's sometimes a bowel sound catch you. You get like one word, you know, like, like when I wrote push years ago, it was always like it was just as like. Out of the spotlight. He's been married to model medi so Thomas for nearly twenty years that'll be does, she help manage his career together. They run sidewalk angels, their passion project that helps no kill animal shelters. Their relationship has regularly, inspired songs including pieces. And her diamond about muddies health struggles including autoimmune and take born diseases. Dr. Dr. It was really difficult. Because my life for twenty one years has been the road, you know, and at a place where I want to be more than just a patient. I wanna be more than just victim. Last time they were on tour. Rob was leading a double life. He would literally be on the bus doing a therapy for me that required injections getting in front of the stage planes at thousands of people doing meeting grades get back on the bus check on me do more meds. He was doing all of us, and he did it and never complained. What does that say about him? He's everything from me. The life that we have when it's when it's bad. It's worth saving. And when it's good it's better than anybody's pleasure. Spend time with rob and his sensitivity, outpouring of love and appreciation for those around him. It's palpable and returned the same management of work with some of the same people for thirteen to twenty years. So we're on the road. That's a little tight family that we have. I liked it. Run. Wardrobe case. Very exciting. I don't like this question myself like before show. I like to hang out to see friends, I like to socialize all that energy, bringing in and then put it back out. I love you guys so much to be so much. He kicks off with. I love. And plays fan favorites including little wonder. Andy, not a high. Schoolkid about him. This shows but over for hours that rob stilling savoring every interaction. Sober. The bottom of next. Rob Thomas and artists who loves the tour and who's tour loves him. Right back again did not support. Finally tonight, a personal note.

Hour number two of the rich Eisen show is on the air. We just had a great chat. With Jeff Van Gundy was calling game five of the NBA finals tonight. Kevin Durant, according to Steve Kerr in the last hour, went through a shoot around with the team came out. Fine. Looked good. And is a true game time decision. He is questionable. But is now officially a game time decision tonight, clearly any getting any part of him back percentage wise would be better than not in my mind for the Golden State Warriors. We'll keep an eye on all that sugary Leonard is making his way to the studio. Our poll question, Chris Brockman, go ahead and unpack it here we, we're about to chat with Aaron Boone, the New York Yankees manager, go Kris. Okay. So we all know Aaron Boone hit one of the most famous postseason home runs. Back in two thousand and three game seven of that epic LCS with Boston and extra innings. But what is the most member? Homerun of the last twenty-five postseasons. So they all kind of tie in Joe Carter's nineteen ninety three World Series walk-off game six the biggest celebration in Toronto history until maybe tonight. Maybe tonight. Right. Aaron Boone zero three home run. I just mentioned. He's on the phone right now. David Ortiz in the news for the wrong reasons right now. But two thousand four game four twelve inning home run to kinda start Boston's epic comeback there and then Saint Louis we're going to David freeze two thousand eleven World Series game six in extra innings the biggest celebration. Saint Louis had that they're pending Perry. The last night might be on Wednesday. The Bruins prevented it and, and now there's a game. Seven memorable home runs in the last twenty five years, Yankees fresh off of a road trip in Toronto as a matter of fact, as well as Cleveland now, getting set to take on the Mets tonight in the subway series game in the manager of the New York, Yankees, pleased to have back here on the show, first time since he was manager, used to have them back in the day talking when he was with the SPN. He's Aaron Boone Howery iron, I'm doing good. How are you risking a time? Thanks for you, too. How are you feeling? Should I ask how you're doing? I mean because it seems like everybody else around. You is needs to look both ways before crossing the street. Yeah. We feel like in a lot of ways, we're getting better. But getting getting guys back we got DD back, obviously, and hopefully more guys soon. But I'm feeling well so yeah. Yeah I'm glad to hear. I mean I mean obviously sometimes you gotta let your smile be your umbrella. I mean, the, the, the Gardner injury if you will was just took this whole thing to new heights that even even even thrown helmets, coming back at you could could lead to an injury. I mean, have you ever experienced anything like this before Erin? I would say the amount of the, the amount of injuries. We've dealt with really starting from spring training, you know, to really core guys, and obviously really important people to our team has been has been. Oh, you know, a lot and probably more than I've, I've been a part of certainly but to these guys credit man, they've, they've all into our organizations credit. We feel like we've built really good depth. And whether we've had guys from from our minor league system, come up and contribute whether guys that we've brought in from outside the organization, everyone has really stepped up and, and played a significant part up and down the roster and allowing us to, to win games and we certainly look forward to getting our guys back, but the, the expectation hasn't changed. And that's we when we show up to the ballpark, we expect to go out and do whatever it takes to get a win. And, and that's been been a cool thing to witness that singular focus that these guys have really had each and every day. Well, I mean, is there somebody specific I can guess who? But I'll just throw it out there. Somebody specific whose job, it is to inform. You each time that somebody is going onto the injured list in personnel. Shows up at the door of your office. You're like, please don't. I mean is that is that happening? Steve, Steve Donahue, and I have developed an interesting relationship. You know, I look at them in with Gwen. It is anytime. I see him and just wait. Whether I'm getting good news or bad news. Unfortunately, he's had to he's had to bring a lot of injury stuff our way. But they've also done a great job. And bringing these guys back and getting these guys on the mend and, and we feel like we're, we're getting closer to getting more and more healthy well, in terms of that. And because I know when I speak to managers or coaches, certainly in the NFL they prefer to talk about the successes with those who have played as opposed to the injuries and less that could be taken as an excuse of anything. But let me just quickly if you don't mind. What when, when do we expect the following back? Aaron judge, what can you tell me about him? Erin, so errands down in Tampa, now, he'll start getting live ABC's, maybe even a rehab assignment, potentially starting over the. The next probably week or so. He's doing really well he's been he's been taken full BP doing his defensive work running the injuries out of there. You know, now it's just a matter of how much game action are we going to get them? And, and so he could be, you know, he's getting close to be in able to start a rehab assignment. So really moving in the right direction with Aaron what about Stanton, Giancarlo Stanton and Stanton is scheduled to start a rehab assignment tomorrow. Tomorrow night with Tampa. He'll play two games there and then probably go up with our AAA team over the weekend. And then, you know, we'll see how much more or at that time if we wanna bring him but John Carlos knocking on the doors. Well what about Severino? Seventies just in the plane catch. I think he's I think he's out to ninety feet today. So still building up to two long toss. That's been all going well he's been throwing now for about a week or ten days and, and everything's gone. Well so far. So once he gets back to two long toss. Then we'll start to consider amount getting them on the mound. And once he does that, and then, as a starting pitcher look at it, as a spring training situation where he's starting spring at that point. So he's a ways off, but everything that we're seeing with him has been encouraged him and last one Batanes is he in the same boat as Severino, so Dell and actually through the hitters last week or a few days ago, and then had some soreness coming out of that. So he's coming back up to New York. He'll see the doctor today all the preliminary tests look good. It doesn't look like anything some too serious there. But, but it's certainly something that we want to make sure that we're, we're not having him push through anything unnecessarily. So well the better feel for him here over these next couple of days. Sharon, Boone Yankees manager here on the rich Eisen show writes a year, plus into this, what, what has been the most unexpected part of your job coming out of the. Booth. And after years of playing and being around it through your family that you just didn't expect in a way to be a manager and major league baseball. You know. I guess the, the volume of things that, that come across the desk, you know, everything from from things that happened between the lines to, you know things that happen that have nothing to do with the game. Because, you know, we're dealing with, you know, on a daily basis between players staff traveling party. You know, you know, we're forty fifty sixty people that, you know, you do become like a family. So you there's a lot of things that happen, not only in baseball, but people's lives that, that come across the desk that are all things that you have to manage and deal with over the course of a long season. So I think the volume of that, and how you handle that is, is probably been the biggest thing I've loved it, and I in a in a way in my mind going into this prepared myself for that. But until you really go through it, it's hard to really fathom. Aren't you wear the pinstripes earned? Also at all every now and, again, I get a lot of questions about that. I I like my like my, my sweatshirts and you know, but I I'll I'll busted out every now and then, especially now that starts the warm up, you'll you'll see it every now, actually my eight year old asked me that the other day. Erin. I mean, even loss and kids or noticing, my, you know, people are just noticing, it's just I don't know, just kind of the big topic last year. And I ended up wearing it more than I think people realize. Okay. Okay. Very good. So taken on the Mets. You know, I mean, the ninety seven was the first year that the Mets and Yankees played each other in the regular season where we're now it's unbelievable. We're now in our third decade of gangqi and Mets playing each other and regular season, is there anything special about it, still Aaron when there is because, you know, you get a sense that look in the course of one hundred sixty two games anytime you. Have something in in the course of season. We go to London in a couple of weeks to play Boston. And that's going to be that's going to be a great experience. But anytime you have these big series they the series that, you know, draw draw a little more attention. You know, obviously in, in New York here where people on both sides of the aisle, you know, that it means a little bit more. I think you can sense that you can feel that so I think, in the course of a long season anytime you have something, that's you know, at least a little bit unique that kind of gets the juices going little bit. I think it's a great thing, and a fun thing to be a part of especially in this great city that we get to call home now in Boone here on the rich Eisen show a few more minutes left with the Yankees manager, I'm sure you heard the news about David Ortiz last night. And it looks like he's out of the figurative woods years is horrible. What what happened to him? You got a good poppy story be doing battle with him. Obviously, you got the better of the Red Sox and o-3 vice versa. No ford. You got a good. Big Papi story. No just just my, you know, experiences with them over the years is everything that we hear about him. I mean, there's a, there's a graciousness to them the, the competitor that lies within him the good nature that he is. He's just a he's just a really charismatic great great guy, and, and certainly praying for a speedy recovery for him. And, and hoping that it is something that, that he avoided something very major. But we're all thinking about a big Papi today. That's for sure. I know it really is just kind of shocking. How often do you get the two thousand three homerun? You hit brought up to you. Is it not often often does that happen quite a bit remarkably? I mean, it's you know as as time has gone on. I've kind of appreciated it a little bit more in, in just just when I say that just what it means. To so many people whatever again, whatever side of the or wherever to you ever each year for the amount of intimate stories that I've heard in regards to, you know, and as a sports fan, I can relate. Like, I remember exactly what I was doing at that moment, and the and the left level of stories that I've received over the years has has been remarkable. It's made me really appreciate having a little piece and such a great rivalry. You got a good one one that maybe awkward or that made you awkward that they told shirt ever shared in a way. So Ryan flare at infielder big league infielder, was, was going to school up and up in New England, and they were at a party. I don't know if he's in college or high school, but they're out of party, and they were on a second floor or whatever. And they hit the home run. It was kind of a Red Sox fandom party. And they said they took the, the TV and threw it out the window on the streets. Got introduced to Ryan. Cool. So the shot heard round the world not to television in a way out of out of a house. Right. Right. Isn't that amazing? And your brother was calling the game. In the booth for FOX, so that was crazy on. You can you came in as a pinch runner as well. If I'm not mistaken, you weren't even prepared for. I mean how do you even prepare for a moment like that? I don't know. He just do just get up there and you swing. And you hit it, hey Aaron have a great time tonight against the Mets. I being a native New Yorker. I watch every night on. Yes, with my kids. So I'm really enjoying the exploits of, of watching your team that you're putting out there on the field with a whole bunch of players making the most of their opportunities right now. I appreciate that. It's always good talking to you. Hopefully we'll do it again soon. That's Aaron Boone Yankees manager here in the rich Eisen show. That game was unbelievable. I've forgotten so much about that game. Where the Red Sox were up five to because big Papi, put them up by yank in one out of the stadium, often, David Wells, boomer. And Yankees, a three run lead nets. When you began a blackout on the game. Because Grady little left Pedro in the game too long. Yeah. To phase Nasu actually, we blew big big hit by Sada tied the game at five and then the game goes into the eleventh inning Aaron Boone becomes comes walks in as a pinch runner and eventually winds up at the plate against Tim Wakefield who knuckled one of the plate, and he took the first one down the left field line. And then the next year Yanks her up three nothin. Gangs are are up three nothing gained for goes into extras. And poppy joins Aaron Boone. Carlton Fisk in nineteen seventy five. With the famed body language home run and joins Puckett in World Series game six nineteen Ninety-one in the eleventh inning. And David freeze the forementioned David freeze and the two thousand eleven World Series. It's boone. Ortiz, Fisk freeze Puckett as the only players in major league baseball postseason history to go yard in extra innings when their team was facing postseason elimination in that game. Unbelievable. That's it. That's the list. And that Ortiz homerun kept the series going. I don't I didn't I forgot game five went into deeper, extras. Yeah. The next night, the Yankees had a chance to knock off the Red Sox games for in game five and games. That went to extras just one run. And that would pretty much ended Ortiz singled off of Esteban Loaiza. To win that game in a walk off. And then his World Series performance against Saint Louis was off the charts. Off the charts. One of a kind player. And it's good to know that he's, he's doing it seems like he's doing well, right. I mean you're I is there any that, that? That fun today. The latest that I just saw a Marlee Rivera from ESPN her and her meek ro row. Haas have been doing a lot of reporting on this update from Enrica row Haas who just arrived the Dominican Republic, the Red Sox plane is about to land in the DR medical authorities have authorized transfer once the point, so they're bringing his ready, according to his doctor he is stable enough to travel. Also reports I'm seeing here is that he opened his eyes, which is great. And by the way, in terms of cities on planet earth with some of the best, medical care, you can't be Boston. Can't beat it. So good. Good on the Red Sox. And then that plane down there, and let's get big Papi out and, and see what's what? That video then again, if you've if you see it, folks, it is it is. I know you say graphic it 'cause you don't jarring but it's very jarring. I mean he's sitting there. Yeah. The first report, of course, like you said earlier today was that it was a robbery and mean Jonah leg. It does not think like a robbery, apparently, though the bullet went through and maybe hit another compatriot of his in the leg, which is where the first reprint is someone was shot in the leg. Robbery. That's not a robbery robbery. You don't use someone in the back during an ambush. I mean, what are we going to? And then the, the individual went viral of the individual people beating him up. Yeah. You mess with that bull. You're going to get the warns in the Dominican Republic, and he got the horns. That is an assassination attempt is what that looks like to me. We'll we find out something crazy. Well, it's all crazy. But we find out that what d- not give them a picture or get an autograph, or, or somebody put a hit out exactly even worse. Obviously, there's so much to speculate to fill the void, but it really was unbelievable. Meanwhile the Yankees and the Mets play tonight. I was at the first subway series game in nineteen ninety seven I sat in the upper deck of Yankee Stadium and watched Dave by vowel Molicki. Remember how he spelled his name. M. L C, K I, Dave Molicki of the Mets. Against the Yankees, I believe started Dwight Gooden in that game. Look that one up that would have been the good in years. Nineteen ninety seven it was June seventeenth nineteen ninety seven it was Andy Pettitte, pardon me, so pets out there in the mound, and the Yankees had just won the World Series. This is the year that was gonna wind up with Java Chamberlain in the midge bugs getting the Yankees. Oh, wow. And Sandy Alomar junior getting the Yankees in in that in that series against the Indians. But Dave Molicki threw a shutout he threw a nine hit shut out on the Anki six nothing in the first subway series game. And that is not the way we Yankee fans drew that one up that the Anki and Mets would play an actual regular season game against each other in Yankee Stadium Yankees won the next two took the series. But those are really special moments when it was just baseball stopped at interleague play. It's not like every single week. There's something. I still hate interleague play. You know, it's, it's weird. It's, it's, it's. Well, so mean anything anymore, it doesn't mean anything more, I thought it was cool when the first time these two teams would play each other would be the World Series. And I also thought they do it like the Olympics, like once every four years, they're going to have interleague play. Certainly since it's different rules still. Eight four four two four riches. The number to Dow here on the rich Eisen show. Don't move anybody. We've got we've got Sugar Ray Leonard making his way to our studio.

It's only a game until you bet it at DS. I. You're I'm reading more about Bumgarner statement after the max Muncie home run from yesterday. And he said, everybody wants everybody to let them be themselves. Well, this is me. Let me be my myself. He's not wrong. That's what I mean. Let him let him you know bark at players and how the moon and scream to get off his lawn and, and, and then let the other players say, go get the ball out of the ocean. And I guess we can all go on with their daily lives. I think if we're going to make a big stink about letting these kids, celebrate and pimp home runs or what have you a great place. They make in the field. And we have to do the same right for the old school guys who wanna get pissed when they get shown up or the perceived to show I'll give it. He's perceiving that he's getting shown up. So let him bark, did you see the Rockies and the Mets Daniel Murphy? Let one fly he just smoked. I mean. In the history of players beating their former team is all Tom way up there. I don't even know what Murphy's numbers against the Mets are. We could probably Jen stat, and it's probably don't even know what it is. But. So he homers couple batters later gets it right in the back. Yes. And, and this is the eighth inning of a game and in city field. Couple batters later teammate gets when right in the back the Mets are basically saying I it wasn't on purpose again. Like you're gonna put one right in the back you know to four run game. I get. I don't know. But I mean and and so, and so it was right in the back. And so people are coming out and Gibson who's a pitcher of the Mets flips the ball at the batter, like flipped it at them. You see the ball trailing down a right towards the Mets dugout there is there and then everybody comes running out of the area, and they come here, they come run and running out of the pen, everybody. Come on. Can't stop me. I'm I'm running. All right. I'm about one hundred feet after the pen here. Come on. You're pushing and shoving on. I know you're pushing and shoving on on the mound but I almost feel grass here at calm, the hold on a second. Yeah. You guys are really pushing and shoving right around home plate right now. Artem on the infield dirt here I come. Those, those are the ones that should be suspended. I. In the bullpen guys, who come running in an ad twenty more human beings to the scrum. I'm addicted to watching them. Those are the ones Hague's forever. So should do though it should be like a two front game of thrones war, you want to join the fight fight each other out on a warning. Stay you wanna come in all the bastards on the war, or there's official like t shirt gun or catapult like devices that are right there in a closet in the bullpens. You open them up. And then over the bullpen wall that invariably separates the two, you can have a fight, or like a Dodger Stadium when they're separated by the pavilion, like ones in right field ones in left field, right? I mean you, you can really just shoot some short right over over the fans like a t shirt gun but to foam and start hitting each other that way fruit, rotten tomatoes. It's honest has the absurdity of it been pointed out yet. How dumb is it? It's pretty dumb. Those are the ones who should be suspended. I thirty one nine nine like no one leave the dugout. No, no. You wanna fight the pitcher go out there pitcher. You think you want hit somebody, and you have no sorry catcher. Kansas diet, just one on one like hockey dropped the frigging glove. Okay. Both dropped gloves pitcher, drops his glove. Batter takes his gloves off minute. The batter takes gloves off. It is his intention. We fight drop the gloves like hockey and go. And the umpires let him go, like let them act like idiots until they get tired and separate them. That's it. That's the way baseball should do it. Because. No, we come out of this, you come on this, Doug. From Doug, and everybody come running out of the pen, hang on a minute. I'm almost there keep it going guys. I'm really almost there. I mean seriously, if you show the video, one more time of the Rockies, and the Mets leading leaving the bullpen the Mets are first out of the bullpen their first out of the bullpen. And in the Rockies Penn is like twenty feet behind him, and it's kinda crazy. But closest ones to them are the Mets running out of the bullpen. But they're still they're not gonna fight each other right. Nope. They're not gonna fight the closest in proximity them. They're going to run three hundred more feet to join the fray, you really wanna show support you wanna show support fight each other from you look at these idiots. It's Benny hill. You're right. It's back and he sex they need their own theme. And it happens all the time. Baseball's fine with this. I mean an owners are fine with us because who's going to get hurt? Carlos Correa got hurt in a frigging massage. You don't think somebody getting pushed and shoved around or running jogging out of the bullpen isn't going to get hurt happened again, I think I thought to myself, you gotta make a mental note. This is really gonna talk about. So dumb. Yet, latest poll question again result brought to you by man versus food on cooking channel. What do you have over there, creating the most memorable home in the last twenty five postseasons Joe Carter ninety three Toronto angle there boon? Oh three game seven just talked to him. David Ortiz ale game four and four. David freeze two thousand eleven right now. Joe Carter leads the way forty percent. Big Papi, twenty-seven percent. David freeze twenty percent. I watched that clip Beck. I forgot he tied the game in the bottom of the ninth he's moving with a two run double. And then the fact that Joe buck used the same call that his dad did for pocket. Yeah, we'll see because it was both. They're both game six to force game seven and Aaron Boone's scented center team in the World Series and Ortiz's just prevented elimination leading to a World Series appearance and a win for the first time for. The Red Sox to break the curse. I guess, none of them match the memory of a walk off World Series win series win like game over literally season overdrive home safely. And that's what's online year for Toronto tonight, what if coli hits the shot at the buzzer to say, I mean, that would be kind like similar style is not game seven like he did against Filipino. Remember I pointed that out like the Toronto on Philadelphia's sports disappointment? Yeah. You know you were eliminated team. I know he's still have have to show. Do you think it's over tonight? Oh, you didn't talk about it. Now do I think it's over tonight. I. I gotta see what Durant looks like. Duran Duran obviously is a huge huge factor. We heard Van Gundy say that they're having trouble defending the pick and roll who's the greatest seven four you've ever seen defend the pick and roll. It's Kevin Durant. Okay. You've heard maybe having trouble defending the three who's one of the greatest seven foot permited vendors you've ever seen. Creating offensively sometimes maybe has been an issue for them, who's a guy who could bring the ball up at seven feet. Who's a guy could shoot the three at seven feet? Who's the guy can block a shot at seven feet? Who's the guy who can also post up at seven feet who's the guy who can hit a baseline jumper at seven feet. Who's a guy can amid range jumper seven feet. He's one of the greatest players ever. And the fact that they beat the rockets without him and beat the blazers and swept them without him was one of the biggest for gays I've ever seen. Yeah. And we set it GM that we thought they need them to beat the bucks here. The raptors now. Klay going out was a particularly unkind cut loony who somehow came back in game four on conned cut doubtful. And then all of a sudden played a minute, the fact that it seems appears that boogie cousins used up the rest of his reserve in game two. Because in games three and four he was just as he was toast non-existent, right? So Durant coming back and being able to move around and defend and run the floor and create shots. What if he comes out tonight? First quarter. As a ten point first quarter what if he comes out tonight? And it's twelve four Darris call timeout. Like, that's the sort of a couple of threes. Steph at the three Klay adds one, one thing that won't happen. Is. Who's the biggest hot head on on Toronto? They going gonna have one. That's what we talked about, at the beginning of the show is that they show emotion negative. Yeah. They I mean, Carr, Lowrey went and got shoved by a fan who was way to way. Right. So they really aren't out of sorts and that's the one thing because when you when you're looking at what happened to the warriors when they were up three one, the only instance of somebody up three one to lose an NBA finals history. Just looking at it the fact that dream on hit. Lebron at the end of game four in the narves. To knock him to basic Hake himself out for game five which the warriors did not win. While if you remember he was watching an as game across the way with marshawn Lynch. They lose that one than the warriors, then the cabs hold home court, which is what the warriors game plan is here. Can you all Jen stat? Mike del tufo hill gen stats here. I got a couple of for you. Old June starts. And it is brought to you by our friends at truecar shopping so confusing for a car when terms like dealer price list, price, invoice, truecar shows you what other people paid for the car, you want, you can recognize good price. When you're ready to buy new or used car, visit truecar to enjoy more confident car buying experience. Stick with me here. This is a little bit confusing, but I will just stay with me here. No team. That's gone up three one in a series by winning both road games. Has ever lost an NBA finals with the two to one one one format. Okay. Okay. So many teams have gone up three one but they won both at home to start. Or split the first at home and on the road to start and then one two in a row at home, or as the warriors, did, or the, the Cavs did when they were down three one if you remember they didn't win two in a row at on the road and oracle to fall down three one, right? The raptors of the first team to be up three one. And if they lose, they'd be the I wanna be up three one losing two in a row. Winning two in a row on a road. Does that make sense? I know I've kind of tripped up a little bit here, but in the history of three one leads. No team. That's gone up three one in the series by winning both road games has ever gone on to lose a two one series there thirty. No in that situation. So we're sitting here saying that the warriors are trying to do something that the Cavs did. But the Cavs didn't even do what the warriors are being asked to do. Because as you remember the warriors lost one in Cleveland. To go up three one. It's kinda crazy with the raptors have done here and what they've done also is take advantage. And also beat him up. The Hamptons four minus Durant have not been able to do to these raptors what again, they were able to do against the rockets and also Portland that Klay injury. Really hurt that Klay injury really hurt the fact that they couldn't follow up from that big game to win with everybody, minus Durant hours beg. No clay boogie. Just lost it. And now here we go with the, the raptors trying to wrap it up tonight. So that's my long winded answer to does it happen tonight. I need to see what Durant looks like he is such a difference maker, and it is all set up. It is all set up. It's gonna be tough to pull off. Durant comes back, and they win the next three in a row to become the first team to ever lose two in a row at home to fall down one three and come back to win it to be the first of the previous thirty to go ahead and win it Durant is the MVP of this series even if he scores twelve fifteen and sixteen. Then we'll have the conversation about what happens on July. First. I guess, for chaos sake. Do you want to send kinda what you're rooting, it's happening because these raptors there they're really they're really good. When they walked off the court the other night. They look so pass like they hadn't done anything. Yeah. That was a. I know you. That's what I said that didn't look like a team at one two in a row oracle, and they short don't look like a team that's gonna lose three in a row blow this series. When we come back another one another old gen stat from the National Hockey League game seven being forced, this is some good stuff. And we'll talk to you about what wo- JR. Is reporting on on Anthony Davis promise before the great sugary Leonard joins us in studio, and then your news update and then more phone calls at eight four four zero four rich. That's how we're rolling here on this busy back from the weekend edition of the rich Eisen show. Just one sports net. Is your home for the best NBA finals post game coverage as the Toronto Raptors Duke it out with the Golden State Warriors? Coa listen, I'm not going to be a cookie when he's opposed to something spoke to you. Okay. Dan, Patrick rich Eisen. The big podcast was Jack real GM, and so many more only on apple podcasts and podcast. One. Stay tuned for sixty seconds of AP news headlines, right after this podcast, heraldic puffs or not chew. Four check generates attornal David pasta, or not when I head fake got Bennington cook amid. And then he snaps it in and the Boston Bruins have forced a game seven on Wednesday goal and assist for Pasternak and then a goal and assist for marshawn Bruins eight no, this postseason when marshawn lights, the lamp twenty-five in one all time. Marchand scores a goal in the postseason. So could you wanna see him scoring game seven just again the seventeenth game seven Stanley Cup finals history? It's just it's the six game seven of this postseason. Which is awesome posts one shy of the record, and I am just crossing my fingers hope against hope that there's not some sort of refereeing snafu in game seven. Just hoping against hope. Team on the road. That'd be a fun. Game wants to go Rask with twenty eight saves nineteenth goal, to reach fifty career playoff wins in NHL history. And. Of all the game sevens. The Bruins have and Stanley Cup final. You believe is the first home for them about that. Sixteen to win on the road a force game. Seven four the previous five teams went on to win the Stanley Cups kind of helps that's called momentum right there, KOMO. Here's a good old gen stat. You don't have to you don't have to play the you don't have to play it, Mike. But here here's a good one. Daniel chara campaign. He's out there dude. He he, he scored the empty netter. It was just, you know, it was like an eighty foot but. Is is that the unwritten rule when you're up for one, you shouldn't try and send it down down the ice to he's trying to clear the pot? I'm just joking in a way because everybody gets so uptight here. That, that set that if you're Ray Bork, you're a little pissed no. Because right Bork had the record for oldest defenseman score goal and Stanley Cup final game at four an Lantra forty years, one hundred fifty seven days, but that little flip that went the length of the ice gives Daniel char the record for oldest defenseman score goal in the Stanley Cup final game at forty two years. Eighty three days and one broken jaw. Can mazy he's even out there but it's a record setter, that took Bork out of the books, Raymond. Cam neely's water bottle will become the most famous, WalMart. And that's a look at this is how you have to respond. And when you get jobs during the road when you get jogged, and there's still more game left to be played more series left to be played, that's the way to respond gotta play exactly. Yeah. But that's the blues responded. They, they got jobbed by that hand pass in game three of round two against San Jose. And guess what? They did finish them off, pardon me. That was the that was the the conference finals finished them off. Finished them off that way. So an end of Vegas Golden Knights who got jobbed with that awful major misconduct. Where they were up three nothing and then four power play goals. Row. Put them down that game went over overtime. Still had a chance. That's how you got to respond and feel good about that. He's a great game and I'll be watching game seven on Wednesday night. Joining us on that day coming up in a couple of days. Joining us from Pebble Beach at the United States. Open is season ticket holder Saint Louis blue seed season ticket holder, Joe Joseph book. I wonder if he's sitting up is he going to watch it? Nancy's house game seven knock on nance's door. Where's he going to watch game seven the great night before the USO night before you call the US open? You settle in and you watch favorite hockey team. And the thing is you don't wanna scream too much, too, 'cause I bet you I bet you just knowing Joe, I shouldn't speak for him. But I bet you that's the only team outside of whatever his kids youth teams were playing on that. He's that he roots for where to college Indiana. So I don't I maybe he does that. I never spoken to him about big ten sports ever. But in terms of it's definitely not we everybody jokes about how he's rooting against your team. Right. Like literally Bruins fans, it's the first time that they could legitimately say he's rooting against their team. We'll bring that up with Joe on Wednesday when he sets when he sets us up for US open and a man who competed in the US open at Pebble Beach will be on the show Friday in studio. Kevin costner. Oh. Right. Boy, McEvoy don't think knows pet wasn't that pebble. I don't think it was a pretty pebble that much. All we played a pro-am there. Ben. Man. I thought he I thought that was I thought that was a I thought he actually did that they didn't shoot that at pebble back in the day ten Cup. Now. They didn't know that. Now I tried so whoa, JR. Says that David Griffin is leading teams know what needs to be done in order to get Anthony Davis. And then both Los Angeles teams and both New York teams of made phone calls and at the Celtics are obviously interested, but kyri depends what he's going to die. Right. Right. The calls are being made. All right. But Anthony, Dave. Yeah. And I'll tell you this man. They got the right guy for the job. I think Griffin's gonna do. I think pelicans fans you should feel good like this very delicate. This is the right way to do it, not in the middle of February when everybody's freaking out about it and their basketball games. You haven't heard from Anthony Davis. You haven't you haven't heard from the pelicans since they ones I on the, the rights to drafts I on in a lottery. Yeah. This is why I wanted to Nick's to get David Griffin. He knows what he's doing. He knows exactly what he's doing that article went on to say that might be have to be a three team deal. Just what the pelicans are looking for asset building, especially since I think it's already been established. Although Griffin wasn't there? Pelicans, aren't too enamored with who the Lakers might cough up. Right. So another teams might be interested in that and you could make all difference. It's going to be very. Very involved. But I think it will happen, a lot of full, and I bet you the pelicans, a wind up and good good shape for having lost. Somebody is, is great as Anthony Davis, every have someone Zion and whoever you pair with him. He better wind up with the Lakers because I think, only Jimmy Butler is walking through that door, maybe, and July first, a lot of people talking about Klay coming down. I find that hard to believe. Boy, July, first, it's going to be as the kids say, let your news update. And yes in studio. Sugary Leonard is soon as we come back.

CCs Milestone Win, The 4th Place Mets, The Knicks Draft And More

"Later on tonight, NBA draft Jerry Recco is excited, but I lot of people are ion Williamson Djalmir an RJ Barrett expected to go one two three although there was some news out there yesterday. The Knicks had scheduled last minute. This workout with dairies garland, dairy garland said afterwards aid, it got me thinking about me, it's gotta be a possibility. When just bring me in for to elevate. And then Woge game out and said, no, no, no. They are locked in on our j Barrett. So I dunno the point of that, last minute workout, I know, Frank Sola tweeted out that the last time they did this, last minute workout thing, it was with Kristaps Porzingis. Now that was a different type of regime altogether when that pick was made, but it's something to think about. But I still think it's got to be, and it will be RJ Barrett tonight, a little bit later tonight with at third overall pick Jerry is here. He's got the update fours what's going on. Jerry morning brought to you by the casino auto group. Discover the benefits of driving and all. Electric Jaguar pace SUV from raycatena Jaguar Edison or Jaguar Marlboro. We'll start with the Mets only because they played last night as both the Yankees who won earlier in the day good game for the first five innings we were locked up at two and two. And then we weren't fly ball deep to left center. Forget it. This ball is gone to the seats left center field to homerun for Josh Donaldson is fourteen th of the year. The Braves of taken a fortitude, how he wrote at east eighty. He did that was part of a seven to Braves win. So in the midst back four games under five hundred forty four thirty one Ozzy Albee's, adding an RBI double Nick marquess two run double in the eighth inning as well. There was Maki Calloway's what happens? Stephen Mazzi when five and then in the six things fell apart. You know, he just kind of cruising. And then, you know he kinda. Hit a wall for four batters fourteen pitches later. They have three more runs and that be that here was Matt's. What happened? They, you know, seeing that their time through that was a big inning for me. And they just got his line not great five run six. It's four walks. Five plus innings. Stephen goes sick. Mate is MLB debut. He'll out a couple of runs over two thirds of great in relief as well four games under five hundred thirty five and thirty nine. Make what our record is. We're concerned about what we are doing. You know it's not fun to be enforced plot. And they're now in fourth place because the nationals took two from the Phillies yesterday as Patrick Corbin end max sherzer, both one, and that's where the Mets are, and where they are tonight Chicago against the cubs. Walker lock it. Yeah. I know one locked. Yes. So shop is good for him and his major league debut. And by the way, can we get some of these guys like this go sick last night? We get these guys from real numbers because when a guy comes in wearing seventy two on his back. Yeah. And then gives up three runs. And in two thirds of inning. You're not Chris flexing comes in with with the rest of still though. I mean I feel like it spring training. And these guys it just seventy two tells me that it's going to be a miserable. I'm sorry. It just is let's guys got a track record. And he's wearing like ninety nine for a reason. I mean Aaron judge was ninety nine we understand, but, like a pitcher who comes in never heard of. And he's got some number in the sixties and seventies on his back. He's going to be terrible. These going to be absolutely terrible. Goat was that they use both those guys the new guys that Brody van wagon decided to go with both of them made appearances last night. Sick was to the top at least where sixty nine. Come out in the sixties. Seventies at least come out with number sixty nine on your back Yankees raise yesterday afternoon. Yankees had two big innings that sunk Tampa and their star Blake's swung on driven. It's a three run Wallin to begin the game of the Yankee. There is the Cenci. No. The extended his arms hit the ball the other way and it will out in right field. And that is John sterling with that Beulah. Yeah. Was first inning all good for the Yanks. They put up a six spot and they beat the race twelve to one. They also put up six runs in the seventh highlighted by labor Taurus's grand slam. In terms of what they did to smell a third of inning. Six runs to. It's four walks, Aaron Boone zas, also it was just every guy putting on a really tough at that against him in war down in a one of the game's best pitchers. Here was Sanchez through his translator. We don't care who were facing team. You know, it doesn't matter who's on who's going to give our best bad, and we did a great job today. Six innings for C Sobat the career win number two, fifty. He says, milestone win whatever really care about fifty. And I really didn't mean that, you know, just wanna go out and pitch, well, and, and team seen win games Buni talking hall of fame for about the lock. Yeah. So this is it for him. I think five years, they come calling. Yeah, speaking of five, it's five straight wins now for the Yankees who now lead Tampa by three and a half games atop the AL least Forty-six and twenty-seven is New York, Chad. Green expected to start tonight against the Astros against from her Valdez from who's three and two of them area of two point seven seven so far this year. I if we had a boy, it would have been from GM Nadi. That'd been cool. So it was that was a right at the from me. F- from geo right there. Elsewhere in baseball the chargers beat the judge the chargers the dodgers beat the giants. Nine to two. Chris taylor. Couple of home runs. Cody Bellinger, his twenty fourth Rockies of the diamondback, six two four and the cardinals and Marlins went to the eleventh inning and it was Saint Louis coming away with the win. Here's another to pitch for Goldschmidt. Goodnight folks goodbye. This thing is crush way, way out of here, and we're all going home a home. Run by the cardinal first baseman. Paul Goldschmidt and is cardinals radio. A long home run as Saint Louis ones winning eleven quickly after the crack of the Nettie, say it was gone. It was like a. Another two to pitch for Goldschmidt. Goodnight, folks. About runs being hit, right? Yeah. So where do you think the Yankees are in the American League in terms of home runs hit? Where do they rank? I would think they ranked near the top. But since you're asking me this way, say sixth their fourth okay? Therefore Minnesota has one hundred forty home runs in seventy three games now Seattle's played seventy eight games. So they have a hundred and thirty six home runs. They also hit a whole bunch early the continued that try, but they lost Encarnacion. And then Bruce Jay Bruce. Right. So Houston coming into the Bronx has one hundred eighteen home runs in seventy five games. And then there's the Yankees seventy three games played. They hit one hundred seventeen home runs. A lot of home runs might chart. It's a lot of home runs at a couple yesterday, including a grand slam seven RBI's angels beat the Blue Jays seven seven RBI that he's having an unbelievable year. He's about in three hundred right around there. Yeah, yeah. His money, that's for sure. Nationals this why they moved ahead of the Mets. They swept a doubleheader from the Phillies Patrick Corbin wins the first game as they win six two. And then max Shire's her the second game to nothing. He says, yeah, I was gonna pitch even with the broken nose. I do wasn't it wasn't that bad. Those but for me it didn't matter. I felt pretty good everywhere else. And he was ready to go, and he did day. No chara of the Washington nationals. I'll go with that or their Matthew Stafford abortion, after who played in called BS on that you tire season with a broken back out have a hard time showing up to work with a broken back, of course. Yeah. Would probably wouldn't be able to drive in here that someone comfortable be here. I got hit in the mouth with a hockey stick was here. Next day, it is true. You are the toughest of all of us as ES definitely we cannot claim as much as you. That's true. That's true. Speaking of BS, a lot of people are calling Bs on this. But who knows thirties in the Dominican Republic say the shooting of David Ortiz mistaken identity? It's ridiculous. You know what just reporting the news? Tony. Somebody shot Phil Simms shot me because they thought I was Phil Simms. I, I could buy that. But I'm not buying this. He is a national hero and treasure. And everybody knows who big Papi's. Sure. Everybody supposedly he was wearing the same pants as another guy. What serious stops at this drug Lord? Lord is probably got something on somebody down there, right? Yeah. I mean I'm ready for Samir, responsible speculation this morning. Why not? So I think that the drug Lord and the government are in cahoots, and I think that David Ortiz probably did some stuff that if it got uncovered he wouldn't be as much of a national hero, and I think the cops got wind of that, and they're protecting both of those entities. So you'd think both people are guilty here. And there just wanna protect everybody in. In the mix basically. Yeah. That's what I Toby these morons down there that basically split eight thousand dollars twenty two or twenty two guys. Yeah. Is a mistaken identity? Yeah. I, I mean, I can't believe that. No, six Fernandez, who was the guy who was apparently the target. I mean I don't know if Sixto was. Really that much of a problem for anybody six door and as Fernan Sixto David Fernandez. Yeah. So he was supposedly the target. Yes, he was was he there. Yes. Getting across from him in the same pants. Well, yes, the same pants a shirt that also had a pattern on it. So a pattern shirt was same size is big Papi, now, he's smaller, and he's of lighter complexion than David Ortiz satisfactory, pants, David Ortiz, putty, or something. Yeah. They yes, they are close also Sixto their clothes, so there was a hit out on sixty six. That's right. Six though, was the target apparently according to the cops, and it was not David Ortiz. But I just nobody believes it. There's not a single person that believed. But what I mean I, I don't even know what to do with. There's nothing to do this just it's crazy. You know. Right. And everybody's talking about it, and I get it. But I, I can't believe it. I. Cannot believe it. And it's not like I have some sort of, you know, ultimate trust in the Dominican police authority. Well, I guess I hate to say this. But if there's another attempt on David Ortiz's life, I guess, we'll find out whether or not it really was truly a case of mistaken identity or six though, you know, one past headed any point, then we'll know that they were going to six right? If you're six oh right now and you're down there in the Dominican. How do you feel? What did you do actually bring this upon yourself? I hear he's trying to change his name to seven tote now, he's visually. In the Dominican drug and David Ortiz or buddies. I guess so I mean I can't follow this anymore. I can't I can't fi too too much while you can follow the NBA draft. That's tonight in Brooklyn at Barclay center. Pelicans picks one and four. Zion Williamson certainly expected to go to New Orleans. He's filling the level ready way. Way. People high fiving saying they hope I come here supposed to be the savior, right? The grizzlies select second. Memphis, also trading Mike Conley to the jazz. For Grayson Allen, Kyle Korver Jae Crowder, twenty third pick any future lottery, protected first round pick the Knicks pick third. Everybody expected to be our Jay baron. He also laid grow recipes, he was the biggest he always told me the Knicks. There you go. He's saying all the right thing. Certainly sounds like he wants to be there. The nets with the twenty seven th pick Chris Middleton of the bucks. Declines is thirteen million dollar player option, according to his agent he will become an unrestricted free agent. They had the NHL awards less. I'm sorry. Talk about the Connelly trade. I did mention. That was. I mean they're going for it. You talking about the jazz. Yeah. Yeah. Of course. That's no, I know. And I think it was a great trade. If you take it, if you're going to take John Meringgi, I don't people those guys, they're obviously out some cap space. It's perfect great trade for both teams. And I think the jazz are also making that deal because they see a vulnerable Western Conference teams in the postseason last year. Had a good team. And now as even better, so they're going to be a real factor there, the NHL awards last night. You had one unhappy team when Keenan Thompson did the opening on NBC sports network, set Tampa, folks. That's right. They tied the most wins in a regular season with sixty two and then they followed it up by tying the least wins in the play with zero. Hey. I mean, that's what women lose days, set records, and they had the cameras on the guys that were there or not have less than pleased as you can imagine that said Tampa Nikita kucherov Hart trophy winner, league MVP Ted Lindsay award is voted by his peers as best player. Robin Leonard of the islanders Bill Masterton memorial trophy, and H player who quote best exemplifies, the qualities of perseverance sportsmanship, and dedication to high Elvis speechless, and Barry trots wins, his second Jack Adams award as best about that. Yeah. About about that. How about that? All right.

Barstool Rundown - June 10, 2019

"The. Today is the rundown Monday preser-, by it is June ninth tenth, tenth damn. Presented by Phyllis Marocco, Phillips uncle has the right tool tub Ukraine. A look that feels right one. There's a, there's one here show. I use I use it at one. I like actually take this home with things. Any use it. I use it at you. US open. And I got to keep it been using it. If you're still using a metal blade to shave his time to reconsider with new Philps Alcocer hundred perfect tool for close clean shape building for closer more comfortable shave his time to ditch the blade protect your skin shave that feels right with an Phillips, and Rocco, shavers six thousand look for Philips Norelco online, and in store for Father's Day is good shave, and I think it shaved I always get shaved when I shave and then put a beard oil in. I'll usually you're no. I'm saying after that use a little beard oil. I'll usually just have a random Chinese guy on the street shave me, and I end up just bleeding all over. That's probably Saint hepatitis C. Yeah. So this is the safer alternative would, Dave is having a staredown for the people at home. There's a guy who's drilling and he's doing very, very softly, but it's still out enough to distract eight. So he's watching them right now. And I don't think he knows that. We're watching him but he's gonna slowly very slow very slow drill. Oh, that was louder. Okay. Pete you here in this. AP fucker. Do you mind just waiting on the drilling? We're like filming. Well, I don't know what to tell you. We run an office. We film. That's what we do. I know I don't know what to tell you keep drilling in the middle of it drill in the middle of it. I don't know. Yeah. We want out too. But I mean we gotta do this stuff. You know. What do you want? Do you want drill? You want us to go. What does yell right before you're going drill? We'll stop drilling doesn't allow you drill do. Trill drooling, and then we'll stop and then you drill, and then, like drill off, and then we'll do that way. All right. We got it. Okay. So usually gonna yell drill. Okay. I really hope does you've gotta yell drill. Please right before it will stop. All right. This place. What was stopping? Where we started. Oh, yeah. Philps. Okay. That's an time moment. Hey chill playoffs game. Seven here we go. Bruins, you know, I'm excited. Here's the thing about hockey, if we're being honest bounce like the to the shot that McEvoy saved that I probably think saves game changes the whole complexion of the game. The one that went off the post off to back off mcevoy's stick back off to his back hockey is balances it's calls these teams. I think they played a hundred times it's fifty fifty that close. I don't think home-ice matters is going to be a war on Sunday, or, or Wednesday. I'm excited. I'm looking forward to it. I will say, here's. Here's something you can point to anything. Yeah. The Saint Louis dispatch put out the congratulatory like congrat- blues, all that some websites, selling t shirts early fine. The biggest thing John him you the, the shaving of the playoff insane before game six for your first only Cup insane. That's, that's the difference in how people go he a movie. Is your John had not like some bit actor? Who's like, hey, I gotta be there Monday morning. You can be like, hey, fellas. Guess what? We gotta stay on the Cup. Wait till Wednesday. Gee, I'd off right with the guy. If you care about your team, you cannot see that's a curse like you down. You talk about the goat curse curse Bambino big dick, Jon Hamm beard. That's a that's a curse. Unbelievable, even I saw why team sard after he was like, oh my God. What the fuck was insane. I think the bigger thing though is that I was watching it at a Taco Bell and a Boston sports team has never lost watching it from taco game seven Taco Bell. Yeah. So I mean. Yeah. I mean unless you want to like buy me a ticket to the game. But even then I should probably be talk. Well, yeah. I mean, that would be disservice to Bruins fans after what you just said, even if I hadn't taken few probably, no, I would I would turn it down. Correct. Yeah. We're actually figuring out what we're going to do for game. Seven the original plan was well, we're definitely doing radio and hurricane Riley's typical radio thing, then we're going to the electric chair from there in, then I offer that godfather, it's almost. Can you say drew? Drilling. No. Okay. You'll let us know this off. He'll let us go ahead. Got maybe an offer to refuse in which we got like four sweet tickets for, for what's, yes. Which is the. What who get because Bruins? Oh, you do. Oh. Oh, it's so that's why like forty grandma. I mean, you also can get like freedom of motions, like films and TV's to watch replays and stuff. Now, the problem is, at least why pee on an island a little bit because you have me fight Oberg marina, and then you need a film. Rigs won't be there. Rigs isn't going to be there, regardless of the US open. That's tough. So why peas driving back with the chinchilla because he still wants to get this? Yeah. Yeah. So we're in a little bit of you by v. I don't think so damn. So I'm trying to figure out in the seat right in front of the box and have someone can stand like this. Just going to be, like alone watching it at hurricane rallies, you thank her soul. P electric chair and hurricane. Oh my God. And give everyone in the stands everyone in hurricane Riley's, tomatoes, just in case, fucking pelton. Never know. We've talked about this Dan on different occasions. When you get invited to a suite in his Bruins, and then you bring like a blues fan. I think this is a yeah. Yeah, trump. Yeah, this is a different case because I would assume the person who invited you knows the deal, they know, barstool, obviously, very well. So I think they probably would expect it. I know what you're saying. It's always tough like when you're an invite somewhere like when we went to. Yeah. Yeah. Michigan big ten shaver ship, and it was like, I can't be like Florida and Wisconsin have you guys don't bring film guy, and you guys just blog it selfie style. Yeah or. Yeah. Like go pros or use have marina. I get the problem is you have to have your phone. No. No. It's like you know, it's I I wouldn't like Gaz can't do it either. Because he wonder if you could wonder if you put your phone. On one of those table arts. Yeah. They have those grips. With marina, and we were trying it, it is fairly difficult. That's till tomorrow morning to figure out that situation. But yeah, I don't know. I think it's a coin flip. I hope the Bruins win. That's all. I got. I mean, it'll be just buy tickets and plates. Go this dad, and then you can bring a camera. What I two tickets 'cause you already like in the yard year plus because someone's giving you these tickets. So by two tickets, John will go with his dad, and then you bring a camera guy for the fourth got it. But then I mean, then we'd just miss out on fight over. Yeah, I guess, which, I guess, is or for marina. Someone access to tickets. Does he is dad? I don't know. I don't know. All right. That we'll figure that out. The other big story, very weird Boston night in a sense because the Bruins replaying winning. We're celebrating the livestream. We had obviously are wildly invested in that. And then David Ortiz. The reports PF t told me I like, hey, David Ortiz got shot. And at first, it was like, didn't, we didn't even know what happened as the night, progresses quite serious? They said it's a robbery clearly. It looks like someone's trying to murder. Yes. Sein- the whole thing, by the way. Like he's stable, which is great. Thank you. I am dying to know what the motive is because his motive, it must've been like just some crazy person Lincoln obsessive banners. It was a police officers. Those Mark David Chapman, style of John Lennon just walking up and just trying to shoot insane. Saying to nipsy hustle, a very well known rapper and he was back in his hometown guy. Just ran up and killed. So beat those guys had beef maybe but no one really knows what it was about. We haven't heard was like that. That was specifically. I thought nobody there's something on our table who by most wanted most like light humans on earth. Yeah. That was why I was laughing about how all the Yankee fans had to be like as a Yankee fan. I hope he's ok well as a human nice of you to wish that someone doesn't die from gunshot. He's trying to do a lot of good stuff, Jim Leyritz. American republic. I would say now. Yeah. I mean, I think it's like when people always do that. Would you like to say, yeah. I hope David Ortiz. Okay. I'm not gonna say as Inc managed to what do you think of this, the phenomenon of when something like this happens now, Pedro had a great one, but everyone takes a picture, and it stuck out to me, because sales guy had one too. So like you everyone post the picture with fourteen that's weird. Yeah. Yeah. In a lot of people do it sales Gaz. Oh my God. He did it figure out a way to make this situation about yourself as fast as possible. That's the worst. Yeah. That is a lot of people do it. It's like when when. When Notre Dom for down it was like I was there and then and then Buddha, Ben one of the all time funniest unintentionally funniest videos, he was like last year when we were in France, I was looking for some blunts. So I could some blunt roles so I can make a blunt and I just stumbled upon the church crazy that it's burning down. What? The best Dallas. That one I got caught up and said something negative out today because I actually thought the churches as. I. Then people like how, then I didn't understand it took me an hour to figure out what was happening reply tweets because it's like had nothing to do with. Football. Tweeter classic. What? But that's like any kind of tragedy anything on Twitter. It's just as well. What you got the Yankee fan, sing sorr- you know. Sorry. You got people post pictures. You got people like making jokes in poor taste. It's also now this says the talking shit segment. Oh, hold on there. That shit. You wanted to give it a little. Thank you is presented by potpourri poo poo, pourri poop ary is a must buy generally works product for shits. I think everyone's shits a couple sprays in the toilet before you go to hold off all the pet smells. Wow. If that works as that's Brian, but from a guy perspective. Yeah. Yeah. No. If it's at your house, you need a road bottle to eat a little mini like, like, maybe where it is necklace. Yeah. -nificant other stays a lot. Our new bathrooms are a little cramped to say the least poop pary is coming on board to help us lockdown are smells, if you falling one of the big boys into the bathroom. True true. Yeah, let's to give this you need to like tape. One of these two big hand. There is no worse feeling when you're waiting for the bathroom in one of the fat pen. Try free. Poop ary dot com slash bar. Oh, you are slash barstool. Also talking shit perfect segue. Tom Cruise challenge Bieber crews Bieber challenge cruise we to a fight, there's something going on because McGregor then again, challenge, Mark Wahlberg. So there's some publicity thing going on clearly here. Yeah. But it did spark conversation quite quite enthusiastic. When I may very much people are the very much on Bieber very much crews, there was no in the middle on Bieber cruises like fifty six years old fiber. Seems to think he's ripped. I don't think he's. Like crews can learn whatever he needs to learn needs to learn how to become professional like is for all of his movies. He's. Stunt role it in just like one month. They were like no. It takes people two years to learn how to fly a helicopter like this. And he learned in a few months. Cruise of tickets. He's a mania. I think people ruin them. Here's a little shrimp. He is by. So is fucking crews. Have crews little Jack. Yeah. He's like, dog peepers ripped. No he's done anymore. Well at that age, you can get ripped in two days. He's not r-. He's ripped in the sense that he'll like look good with his shirt off. Muscle. He doesn't have the actual like killer instinct, muscle mass. But Tom Cruise killed a lot of people in his movies. So I think he's like you know, that I'm knocking much credit to, but I just don't put much weight into murder people movies. So you're. Pretend like he's doing a role where he's a professional boxer. And he would be able to will it. I disagree the will to win college World Series. We always talk about that here. Who makes it first time thirty five years. The big ten team made it little team out of Ann Arbor, Michigan upset the number one team, the country, actually yesterday, UCLA beat them in UCLA, and they will be going to cause serious. Congratulations. Always talk about it. Always always talk about the college World Series, actually, my schedule so fucked up. Yes. What would what the story was? I forgot about Michigan. That's why he put that. Okay. Donahue was like what, what are we talking about here? The Vanderbilt guy struck out like a billion guys something. Nope. Michigan story. It's huge store. I saw it blog. I didn't blog it. I think I don't know blog that Chuck, maybe whatever missions going. I think we Texas Tech and rematch game in the first round we see you're going to go. The timing is tough. It's saturday. It starts, so I'm in between Boston, and I think going to lend it. So the real asked right. Yeah. So it's very hard for me to do it. But I'll be rooting them on. Go blue Masson Bumgarner upset gave up a home. Run to max Muncie. Scream out. Everyone's max Muncie side. I liked Bumgarner. Yeah. I'm on boom cars. That's bumgarner. Yeah. This is what was the quote again. He said, like, if you don't wanna see me, you can go to watch the wall. Go and grab it out of the didn't say, by the way, there's no way he thought of that line that fast going around the base, she thought of it four hours later when. Reported. But Bumgarner like you need Madison Bumgarner for the whole like baseball thing to work because you have a bunch of bat flippers. Now, you gotta people bunch of people make baseball fun. If you don't have like the old school guys, doesn't there's no, there's not too sides to it. But I'm gonna bro. A good point. He's like, everyone's like, hey, let max months. Let all these guys be themselves or about letting me be myself just being a fucking pissed off old dude. I love them. I always have because he, he gave me one of the most decisive victories of all time in the Bumgarner verse Kirsh. Oh, yeah. So that was great, Pat. Flipped by the way, you talk bad flips the back to the college World Series, the Mississippi State guy. No. I mean he went bad flipped and went to the point, the first base on par like almost tackle them, by the time the first, which led our guy, Brandon Walker to tell the first base on part of fucking rivalry city. We didn't think of that one Michigan Mississippi State college World Series like brand still got a win. Oh as one minute thought they advanced pretty sure they got a game today. I'm almost positive. They have a game today. Yell drill. You gotta yell. Go for it, but yell it just say drill. Well, we're almost done. No. You didn't drill drill before scream drill. But we're almost done. Do you wanna drill drill it up just yell yell drill? Go nuts. That's a little drill drill. Well played drill. Say it. I've really just be on the inside there on the outside of this joke. They're on the outside looking in. I was wrong Mississippi. Arkansas plays for so, yes. Mississippi states. Already advanced. Yeah. So Mississippi Michigan would be somebody brand Walker. Little lives from Mississippi State fuck Alvin put up eleven spot on UNC in the first inning right now. And it's still going on. Did you bet it? No, I wish I don't even know what's going on. Eleven runs in the first inning. It's a lot of runs. And they're still only two outs. There's two Elson to move on. Who you were in for Donny? I have no dog in this fight. All right. That's the rundown. I gotta gamble on it. I guess. Yeah, I probably limited, I don't want to know what I've been quietly making comeback in. I was down so much. But I've cut it in half. Don't say anything, that's runner. Don't say anything. Don't drill drill. The pooper stuff is gonna head. Poop. Tommy rundown, yet Tommy's a weird. Here's bird. Come out of the guy next to you really weird. I haven't had to do that forever. I guess. Poop next guy for. Yeah. Yeah. Especially when you know who it is. I knew it was Tommy. Yeah.

Now we're good here. Breaking news. David Ortiz shot and wounded in Santa Domingo had to remove parts of his intestines. Colon and gallbladder liver was also Gamage doctor say he's out of danger, you know, hokey love it in Boston. Just imagine that Bernie higher country. Refner are a win away from a championship. What do we know about Kevin Durant, and a possible return? You gotta hope and pray that he comes back still a lot of questions around what he's going to be able to do here in game five. Kevin durant. Trying to. Boston. Bruins four state game me. For months ago, we're gonna final. I think I'd take it. What you see your perception, Abby sporting event. Welcome outside lines. Clinton case today, we had north to see if the warriors can keep their dynasty alive. We've got a game seven coming in Boston pretty soon in major league baseball offered up, not one but two rare delicacies yesterday. I a baseball legend is fighting for his life. That's the big story where in the Dominican Republic. Former Red Sox slugger in three time World Series champion David Ortiz, was shot Sunday night in a hospital after a bullet ripped through his abdomen during an ambush at a club news out of Santo Domingo overnight kept many of his fans nervous as it wasn't clear. Exactly what his condition was. According to reports or DC is expected to recover. The thing is, it's almost impossible to overstate poppies importance to baseball overall beloved in his home country will never buy another beer again at Boston, he's been embassador for the game. Like so we don't have anymore. But that said the situation is brought out, poppy supporters in droves, the gunman has been identified, but we won't know how much damage was done. Until Adi's is released. ESPN baseball reporter indicated Haas is has the latest insensitive. You go in the Dominican Republic, and you can't just tell me about what you're seeing on the ground. How people are reacting in the news of poppies condition. Now they join gray recovering outdoors Bengo, solid, say finance ago, his gray. He's big ditch on maybe his count CLYDE to Boston because Red Sox playing ball. Maybe a riding around seventeen it those abound, silex baby or ready. All these external right now. All right. How are the people feeling I mean is the vibe positive negative quickly of, how do you think people are taking this? People. Because it ceases to be popularized. Great, hugh. He's all talk to you about it as something of money. Maybe. Does you every do Greg Java kids ways? Old people, the whole island, maybe or like kid, our guys know, like outside that they country guy. He's town guys for the border. Right now in shop. Everybody go. Much. All right. Thank you only. Get hustle from Dominican Republic right now return to ESPN MLB reporter Jeff passan. Definitely ask you say top. When I heard this news, what did you think what was your reaction to somebody who's been around the game for so long? Shock sadness. You know, I think all of the things that people in Boston, and in south of the Mingo in the rest of the Dominican Republic and really in the baseball world, we're feeling David Ortiz, brings out a very specific type of emotion in people. And it's one that leads you to smile. It's because he's got this big bright, genuine smile, this enormous aura that just care that he carries every day. And to think that somebody so larger than life could be targeted like that. It was just a lot of sadness. I think and especially when when the early reports that came out Clinton didn't exactly dovetail with what actually did happen. One of the things that I think people lose sight over dividend. Is that as Paul player, it's arguable? And he is somewhat underrated. He played. For the most part. And there's a lot of discussion as to whether or not that's going to get a guy in the hall of fame of this third. But what do you think about his contribution to the game simply as a player actual own field standpoint? I mean, we have to remember David Ortiz was more or less a failed prospect with the Minnesota Twins and ended up in Boston on a flyer. And to turn into arguably I- arguably because there's a good argument to be made. But arguably the most beloved athlete in the history of Boston sports and we're talking Ted Williams and we're talking Tom Brady. We're talking Carly Trump's game. We're talking Bill Russell and Larry Bird, like there's some dudes in that category. And for big Papi to be mentioned in the same breath as those, and beyond the Boston sports mount Rushmore shows the impact that he had he was front and center in the two thousand four championship. He was there and seventy was there until I mean, you know, he was there throughout the Red Sox dynasty, that has Berge and over the last decade and a half. And the Boston Red Sox of this era are David Ortiz's, Boston. Red Sox quickly. Have we heard anything about with? The Red Sox are going to do in terms of what they've said to the to the fans or you know how they're gonna handle this report. Well, the Red Sox put a statement out last night wishing him. Well and saying this centrally they had heard what the situation was and is in Rick ages reported the Red Sox are sending a plane down to the Dominican Republican hopes that David Ortiz will be transferred up to Boston. Now, things could change. You never know what his conditions going to be. But at this point, that is indeed the plan. And I think just like everybody in baseball. The Boston Red Sox want David Ortiz, to get better. Let's get to my favorite moment of the weekend. Okay. Mad bum max munti max takes that bum out mad bomb tries to tell him wanna hit a home or if you just get around the basis, MAC says you want me to stop the ball? Go get it out of the ocean. This was a great moment. And it embodied what the old school, the new school was. How would have you heard about this in clubhouses and locker rooms regarding this? Encounter. Is it? Okay. That I'm all right with this Clinton. Oh, yeah. I'm super okay. With these cool that I can see both sides kind of I understand. Madison. Bumgarner is a really tough guy, and he doesn't like anybody. Staring at home runs. But at the same time he gets angry when he gives up a home run. Alright with that at the same time, I'm all right with max Muncie. Staring at a ball, just hit four hundred thirty feet into the ocean. And taking his sweet time getting around the bases. I'm okay with the drama a McKay with a little bit of beef going on like this is good for baseball. So if Madison Bumgarner wants act like Harto, let amac like a heart. Let the kid Bray I mean, is that what he's doing right here? The anger is real, but. I'm all right with that hit. That thing saying, hi. Thank you, Jeff. Passan ESPN Emo. Be reporter appreciate it. Leonard jumper. Got seventeen points for the line Leonard Toronto. Raptors one way from an NBA title games, the first four the defending champs and you're not going to go out easy goal. Stick one loss away from their dreams of three P coming to an end go to Toronto. This is what we do for a living. We play basketball. Think about this. If it weren't for DeMarcus cousins coming off the bench to have the most important game of his career the NBA finals might already be over down three one in facing rowdy crowd, and Toronto, the Golden State Warriors have a tall task on their hands tonight as they looked to get back to Oakland for final game at oracle arena. One problem, Leonard is in the way. And he's dominating the series all the while keeping the composer of everyday mail. Thing is focus Lille. We know that doesn't mean anything to someone has four wins. You never know what could happen. You gotta take advantage of, you know, don't get over the hyphen exciting. I think there's, there's a lot of basketball to be played yet again. We try to ignore what the score in the series is and get more concerned with making one game series. If we can the mood's good, we have an amazing opportunity and challenge. And we're gonna do everything we can to, to meet that challenge, and we're excited about it. I'm using the motivation of bringing them back to Oakland to help. We feel like the city Oakland. There's one more game at least ESPN's Brian win horror stories this Toronto. What could be the last night of the NBA season. Wendy off the top. What's going on Katie gametime decision? Then again, aren't there? All let's look at. Yeah. He went through shoot around such as it was only about twenty twenty five minutes, then left with his leg wrapped in ice. Like he did yesterday. No clinton. I think it's fair to say that if this was a regular season, he wouldn't be playing. In fact, he might not be playing for weeks. If this was the regular season this is not a situation where he is not being tough. It's not a situation where there's any strategy here. He is really still injured. And he's gonna probably play through this injury because it's game elimination game. So you hear the inverse a lot in the play in the regular season. Oh, if this was the playoffs he would play here we are. This is the playoffs. So he's gonna play. I don't know what they can get out of him tonight. I would not expect him to play anywhere near as full minute load, but with him in the lineup it, resets, the, the way that the warriors can play with their Hamptons, five putting Draymond green at center in just that even if it's for fifteen or twenty minutes, even if he's not that affective offensively will help them against the raptors to that point putting Thompson back in was. Almost a desperation move at that point because of his injury is well, what are we talking about in terms of actual firepower can be if they're all physically and top? I think the biggest thing that you could save the warriors. They've just got to play better defense. I know that everybody focuses on their offense and they should. They're great offensive team. And when clay was out and then when they had some other issues they've struggled to score. But the reason that this team is down three one is because they just haven't been able to defend. They were the weakest team in the defense in the regular season that Steve Kerr air up, they've been the weakest defensive team, the playoffs in the Steve Kerr era. This just isn't a great defensive team and Clinton, it actually reminds me a little bit about the Miami Heat when they ended their run of four straight finals, it was their weakest defensive team. And the San Antonio Spurs team led by Kawai, Leonard basically wrestled them to the ground because they couldn't stop him on defense. This is where the warriors have the challenge katie's impact on the defensive end, even if just so that he can play on the wing and Draymond can go play inside is, maybe the most important thing that you're going to see tonight. And that's where they're hoping to have the game changing move is on the defensive end before we get some of the things I need to know what's the vibe like in Teo is ambassador. Aubrey out on the street was drastic park looking like how are we so far but leading up to game time. Well, the weather here is terrible. It's cold and rainy. So that is effecting. What's going on? But there are people in line is late is, is recently, as far back as last Friday to get into Jurassic Park, which is just behind me when I came over to the arena this morning. Eight in the morning, they were around the block, there are drastic parks all over the greater Toronto area, there address parks, all over Canada. They're going to be hundreds of thousands of people watching this as a community across this country. Tonight this city hasn't had a championship clinching champion chip moments. Nineteen Ninety-three in the Bluejays before some of these players were even born who are playing in this game. This is a possibility for one of the great night's in Canadian sports history. So everybody, here's a wear, but everybody feels that the thing about it is with the with a two to one one one format that the NBA switch to it opens up the window for there to still be some doubt here because if the warriors can gut through this they get to play at home in game six and they Durant gets a couple more days. So. The stakes are very high. Even though the warriors are down three one and the raptors can taste it. We've got rumors of Anthony Davis possibly being shop possibly moving around is going gonna blow up in anybody's faces like did with the Lakers. What are you hearing about how this could develop? Well, the pelicans have an important decision to make. And that is do they want to get another high pick in this draft. And really this comes down to just how much they like a guy like J T Barrett. I'm sorry guy, like RJ Barrett. A guy you know. The other guards that they could possibly get there, if they light one of those picks they could make a deal. And getting the number three pick from the Knicks. Maybe the number four pick from the Lakers. That's why you have to have talks in these last ten to fifteen days leading up to the draft. They owed to themselves. But if they don't want to make a deal for a drastic if they don't want one of bought one or more of Boston's multiple picks. They could still wait this out. They could wait this out all the way into October if they want, and I will point out that team USA released their roster today for this summer's World Cup in China. Anthony Davis is essentially committed to play in that. So he's not thinking he's going to have to make a worry about where he's going to play. He's letting the process play out as well. Curricular windy. Give me your thoughts on Tony Parker. Hanging it up. One of the great international players of all time. First ballot hall of Famer not just for what he did for, for in the NBA, but he was a tremendous player for France. Fled France to European championships. This is you know he was a core player on one of the great players from one of the great teams for more than a decade, one of finals MVP with Dirk Nowitzki hanging it up. And Tony Parker hanging it up. And you got a couple of finals MVP's hanging, it up this year, that's appropriate that they will go into the hall of fame together in a few years time, he's Brian Windhorst Toronto have fun that I went and talked to thank you coming up the quest for the Cup continues. But Lord Stanley is still recovering from last year's epic celebration with the Washington Capitals kiddos. As we watch the suburban garden Catholic Catholic without stubbing, it, notice it moves, like not at all. It's inanimate and utterly without brain function. But despite that, when it got known his about how gyco not only saves people money but also gives them access to licensed agents twenty four seven online and over the phone. It's clear to them. You should switch because yes switching to Geico is a no brainer on second thought, maybe don't watch garden gnomes to carefully people might talk. Here's more stuff that matters over the weekend. Two more thoroughbred racehorses died at southern California, Santa Anita. Racetrack, it raises the death toll the twenty nine horses since the end of December to California horse racing board recommended that the tracks is spend the remaining days of its meat, which ends June twenty third. However, the board doesn't have the power to remove dates without a public hearing requires ten days. Notice track management has chosen to continue racing. Former welterweight and middleweight champion, Zab Judah is hospitalized in Syracuse New York, after he suffered bleeding on his brain during the eleventh round loss Friday night, and just as third out since twenty thirteen to forty one year old Judah went to hospital after the fight to get checked out and seemingly fine was released hours later, he returned to the hospital as his condition. Worsened. The stage was set perfectly in Saint Louis. The blues were at home facing Bruins team that they know they can beat with the city ready to celebrate alas the party was put on hold by two Raskin merry band of skaters, Saint Louis lost five one Sunday. Now we're coming up on a game seven most of America's rooting for Saint Louis not because anybody cares about Boston. Trust me. We don't but because the drought has been so long out there in Missouri, and all we know is that blues legend bread. Whole is air for a good time. Not a long time. Greg ski joins us and St Louis were quite a few hearts broken last night. Tell me a little bit about blowing that opportunity for them. And with the vibe was like, in that building place, really seem to be rocket. It was rocking in the beginning. But the game was very reminiscent of game three in the series where the Saint Louis blues at a chance to really kind of light a fire into that crowd. Get them going for the entire game blue and opportunity early on the power play. Boston scores early in the first period, and then an emotion that you as a capitals fan must remember from previous seasons that where the air kind of seeps out of the arena. Everybody starts to feel a little bit bad about things, and that transfers down to the ice. You could feel everybody getting a little tight, and it went up being a blow out like it wasn't game three and somewhere of sixty thousand people outside to celebrate the first Cup championship in franchise history. And they go home. They go home saddened after last night's game, the second goal of a soft, just kind of went downhill from there. But to explain to people what is exactly the concern here has been a long time for people who don't know what is the history of the blues in terms of their Stanley Cup and their inability to win that trophy. Well, I've compared them to be the NHL's version of wallpaper. Like they're always there, but never commented on they're not the team like the capitals of the sharks have had these spectacular flameouts postseason, there a team that would make the playoffs every single season and then just kind of not do anything with it. They've had star players come through. They've out other opportunities with they've not had a chance like this. So I think the fans really thought it'd be different this time and it still might be. I mean this is a huge opportunity for them to game seven like their coach Craig, ruby said they didn't think they'd be here back in December January when they were last in the league and rhino Riley who made a critical mistake in game six with a penalty in the first period of delay of game that gave the Boston Bruins a five on three power play. They scored on said, look, maybe our story ends on the road. They're nine and three on the road Jordan Bennington. The rookie goalie seven and two after losses. If the blues are gonna win it probably wasn't going to be at home, where they're now under five hundred it was probably gonna be in this. Very situation. There was an ad posted for those who believe in. Hocus pocus, the jinx element was brought into these. Please explain to me, why this particular ad suddenly meant the blue skins game last night. Oh man. It's worse than Jon Hamm shaving playoff beard, as far as jinx's, go, the Saint Louis post dispatch in their e dish into subscribers on the day of games, six publish the series of advertisements congratulating the blues on their Stanley Cup championship that they have not won yet worse that they published a letter from blues owner, Tom Stillman thanking the fans for their support during this championship run. And in a move that every sports fan understands is a major jinx, the actually planned the parade Stillman road. We're going to raid down market street. You're all going to be there to celebrate with us. The paper told me they're just trying to give people a sneak preview of what they're gonna publish when the blues win. But I think every sports fan does major league jinx putting that out there like they did quickly. What's the vibe going to be like in Boston? Never played a game seven with Bruins there. What are we talking about here? It's going to be a mad house. I would expect it to be very low scoring affair. I always to be a lot of penalties in the game. And it is going to be an amazing moment, where you have this Boston team that is no staggered long in the postseasons dano char with a mask on the broken jaw the whole thing, great goaltending up against the Saint Louis blues team that has the unique ability throughout the playoffs to put the kind of game six loss. They had behind them. It is going to be a fascinating game seven and the first one in a while for the NHL. All right. He's says Dr four his podcast. Thank you. Greg. Coming up statistical odyssey on it easier with this game is about baseball that is Sunday. It was a doozy of the big it's going to be a fun when y'all planning gates. Sportscenter tonight at six eastern with Kevin Gandhi, and sage deal live from Toronto. We have continuing coverage of the David Ortiz shooting in the public as well. Cain Devender Kevin Durant. Save the warriors dynasty tonight and a live interview with eagles QB Carson Wentz after signing his record deal sportscenter on ESPN and ESPN app. Right after PTI we're back in Toronto for game five tonight with the raptors looking for their first NBA, title, and the warriors trying to force the game six our coverage starts NBA countdown at eight thirty eastern on ABC and the ESPN app. When people ask me to describe the game baseball say it's simple. It's a game of ordered pairs made more exciting by the possibilities of those permutations playing out in front of you to unpredictable results, which means this in more simple terms oftentimes, it's boring, the same thing, happens over and over. And you don't understand the super intricacies of the game. And therefore, you're just looking at guys, the ending around. That's y'all. Particularly usually baseball. That is so good. They'd barely anything out of the ordinary happens until Sunday when we got not one but two attempts to steal home plate. I it was Bryce Harper who against the reds at home tried to swipe run, but came up way short on the attempts and was tagged bio mile. It wasn't exactly smart decision, and my qualify with some of called toot born thrown out on the basis like dinkum. Poop, the second one on the other hand, it was one of the best place. I've seen in the bigs all season, the Texas Rangers door, who, by the way, we'll fight you caught in Oakland Athletics pitcher slipping and took off for home ending this deal with a flourish on ahead. I lied. Are you kidding? People. We had not one but two attempts to steal home on the same day in the bigs. That's a borderline miracle. Go play the lottery. Well we talk about making the game. Funny envy. Home runs and backflips and this, that at their don't forget that there are plenty more things that can happen on a baseball diamond to make the game war, exciting just got to know where they are. And that's why it is my favorite sport. And the entire world always has been always will be. See mar Clinton, I'll be here. ESPN.

Starting 9 Episode #61 - David Ortiz

"Welcome back to starting nine. The one amber is coming to a close October. I can smell it in the air. I'm just supposed to say that I don't actually smell it in the air. There was one day this week that it was. Series. I smelled pump haven't dipped into the pumpkin beer yet. I feel like that's probably that's probably this weekend type deal. I had my I had my first basic bitch. I think two weeks ago. Remember you how lovable you were a course. I was blown away. My lips haven't forgotten that flavor, and I can't wait for hit my lips once again, that's when you know follows the fall. Classic is right around the corner. I- jeered I can smell it and I can taste. I am like having trouble sleeping at night mostly mostly last night more more so than other nights because we have David Ortiz on the show today through story. I that brought me back to my childhood not because I was going to talk to David Ortiz because it reminded me of like, you know, seven years old the night before Christmas when you're like, I don't know if I'm gonna. Fuck. It's like, how do you sleep tonight? I just want to wake up and I just want it to be the next. Day, and I want to enjoy this next day that I know is going to be awesome. That's what we got for you today at an interview, David Ortiz, and I wanna take this time right now to thank poppy. You wanna talk about a physical feet. We saw his career unfold, Jared, right before our eyes. Yeah, many physical feats achieved. I think the most incredible feat achieved was him able to walk around the entire barstool headquarters with you dangling from his testicles. If I don't care how Dallas there. This is the one guy that I'll let you have this stance on because we had this discussion before star recording there. There's no bigger. There's no bigger name for me in life, not just in sports. David Ortiz is a walking legend to me and I don't care if if the Red Sox for the rest of my entire life, I'm twenty nine right now. Hopefully I live to be like fifty four. That's with you in that checking out a five. Yeah. And that's in those span of years. If the Red Sox happened to win like five World Series titles in a row and they have the superstar player like he's never going to mean more to me than David Ortiz. Us ever true even asked you. I posed this question. I'll pose it again for the listeners. Let's say. Ellen. David Ortiz are hanging off the side of the cliff. Yeah, and they're both dangling from a rope, Jared, you've got two arms. Excuse me, all even throw Jenna in there for you trying to figure out a way that I could force you to have to choose between David Ortiz and your mother, but you having two arms and two. So Jenna, your mother and David Ortiz are hanging off the edge all from a rope. You've only got two arms. Who do you save? It was a no brainer. I'm saving my mom and I'm saving David Ortiz and all right peach. Yeah, I feel like she would understand, like I feel like you would as she was like falling. She kinda shrug and be like, yeah, I mean, you know, saw coming. Yeah, like it wouldn't be that moment and like The Lion King with like squaw are in Moosa. Yeah, we're clause in his hand and he's just like, throws him off and there's like some shock and there's like anger as he's falling my sister, it'd be like, Arul it's, you know, it's not good. Yeah, that's that's how it will go down. So yeah, that's pretty much it. This was a big day for me. This is a big day for me. I'm glad you got to live it in the flesh. My friend, Yasser. Thank you. This is longtime. The rocket has never burned. Brighter. He's burning today. Yeah, I feel I feel like I'm glowing feel like I'm walking on the sunshine. Yeah, you're walking walking on the sun walked. So now we talk about that band here. Walking on sunshine. That's the song and I'm trying to hear. Okay. All right. Yeah. So another reason why I'm not sleeping as much Dan Lewis is because the National League West coast baseball. I mean, you can't turn it off. You can't rough like there's heroin. Yeah, there's been nights when it's just like, well, the backs are playing the dodgers. I can't go to bed or any one of those match ups. You have the cubs are playing the pirates and you got the Rockies. They're playing the Phillies which by the way I got, I got a fucking smitty. Does everyone know about this? Everybody knows. Okay. Knows if the Phillies do not end up a five hundred ball club. Smitty is going to write a check to the rocket for two two. Yeah. So they they have four games left their two games under five hundred. He tried to buy me out this morning for seven hundred fifty dollars. I said, buddy. All we have to do is win one game, and I make more than that. I get a grand even if they, if 'cause it was a double. Or nothing bet. So if the Phillies finished five hundred, then I get a grant. So he tried to buy me for seven fifty. Go fuck yourself. So you should have bought me over thirteen hundred or something, and I still wouldn't have done it if they get to five hundred, he bet you that they get to five hundred. Didn't they winning season? No, he bet a winning season. Yes. It's winning season versus below five hundred. So five hundred seasons of push, but he would still only aground because there was a double or nothing. Yeah, this is this is quite the development that the Phillies for the first time in baseball history, they would become the first team in baseball history to be fifteen or more games above five hundred through one hundred thirteen games and finished with the losing record that is via Jayson stark on Twitter in the land sly that I am in. I guess it's a little confusing that the Phillies have committed to Gabe Kappler as their manager and twenty nineteen. What if what? If Bryce Harper, Manny? Machado, don't wanna play forgave capital. You ever Kappler is gone. Yeah, the why would you like you can you can tell him how maybe but why would you commit to gave capital beyond this year? If you have such, why would you reason you're in front of you? Why would you not commit to Gabe Kappler if he has given you what he's giving you this year with the group of players, he's giving it to you with. Look at the fucking collapse at there in the middle of right now, they were in first place, playoff team. Can the collapse be attributed to a young pitching staff and two young? Just a young team all knowing out, I would say it's more on that doesn't exist. No. I mean, like Velazquez is Ben there. Pavetti has been. There is a veteran Knowle's a Cy Young candidates. I'm not blaming it on the starting staff at all. No, I just don't understand how you look at what they have done this entire season, and I'm not blaming it on the manager. I'm just saying, I'm not. I'm not bleeding. You're asking, how do we give Kappler an opportunity? How do you commit to all? Because there's, there's whispers. I wanna play for him. Where does? Okay. So some guys don't wanna play for him, and that's what's coming out of that clubhouse right now. Then that's a very interesting move for them too, because that now speaks to a lack of communication and a lack of understanding between the three entities which would be the clubhouse manager's office and the front office. Because if there's rumblings coming out of the clubhouse and that hasn't even made its way to the manager's office, there's no way the front office knows about it. And so the front office being the tip of the spear and shit rolling downhill jeered is going to make the move to secure their manager who they feel has done a good job for them up into this point. I'm the circumstances, so they hire or retain Kappler services again and then the clubhouses made aware of it. So that's the order of operation. And if the order of operation in having an issue with. Kappler goes clubhouse managers up this front office than what we're seeing a breakdown in that communication. If there are indeed folks in that clubhouse who feel like they'd be better served with somebody else if the front office is unaware of that to the point where they have gone out and committed another year to Kepler, there are bigger problems in Philly. That's the case. Yep. Did you speaking of I to do things. Did you see on fan graphs that Jeff Sullivan wrote that in the the era where they have defensive runs saved, which goes back to two thousand three. This current Phillies unit would be the worst. Yikes, that is somewhat surprising. Will you remember area does comments earlier in the year where he was like, we are the worst shifting team in the history of baseball said, and you know what. What. So the thing you gotta think about also is where has come from. He has seen bad defense. He has seen an inability to be positioned successfully. He now knows what it means to have ships working for him. He now knows what it means to have defense positioned correctly. So when he's not experiencing that, he is well within his right based on his status within the game and his status on that team. Just start that conversation between the coaching staff the front office, the evaluators, the data analytics groups, and the players. And that's what's happened, Dallas. I'm gonna give, you know, let's call thirty five seconds. How how is your experience being in the clubhouse for the as clinching a playoff berth. It was. It was great man. It was really seeing. Is there in the postseason now they're actually host postseason play? Yeah. No, no, no, it's the postseason is part of the playoffs. So for them to for them to find out that they were going to the playoffs while they were still on the field kind of cool because it's like, all right, you know, you're, it's, it's a cool moment. You're on the field and you figure out this is what it's all about. This is this is what we wanted to get done. So you fast word of the clubhouse. It was really cool. Just watching all these guys come in a lot of the younger guys who are kind of unsure on what to do, fuck it or not do with my hands, a lot of beer lot of shifting do we drink it? Do we throw it on people in my allowed to do it right now? Do I need to wait? And then you saw a lot of the veteran guys that have come in that have been added on. They just started losing their mind going nuts. So it was. It was really, it was really fun for me to watch those guys party and celebrate the way that they did knowing that they all really appreciate where they're at right now, and they understand what kind of hard work has gone into what they're doing. So it was. It was very deserving. Those young kids to to lose their shit. It was cold to see the veterans embrace him, but we done, you're, I know you got you gotta game. It's probable. You guys picked up a game. So it's game and a half now for homefield. Yes. Okay. So right now the Oakland a.'s game halfback of the Yankees for home field advantage and that wildcard game. I got a feeling probably gonna be in the Bronx. We'll see, but they do have the do have those three games against the Red Sox at Fenway. They have not just very well in the Red Sox are probably not going to go with their their B-team in that series because they're wanna stay hot for Tober. So things could actually who the Oakland a.'s finished with. The Oakland a.'s finish in Anaheim. I will be in Anaheim tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday. Will that team stinks? Yeah. Yeah, they're not good baseball now there. Yeah, this is actually the team. I believe we the last time around in the series scored. Thirty eight total runs against, I believe in in in a three-game series. So yeah, there's some folks this I'm looking for Katie to get to fifty Caraba. Mom play a little pepper. Ooh. Is that what we're calling it now? I think that's what we're calling it. It's better than let's let's hit subdues items really quickly that the first these real fast. That's not use me. That's me being a nerd trying to, oh, because it seemed like me now definitely. That's not a j.. All right. You guys got two minutes on you. Guys got two minutes on each of these because they tend to, they tend to not be rapid fire otherwise playing pepper. Otherwise you get tired out if you play for too long. Every baseball field ever played on had signs on it being like you can't fell pepper hitting balls into the fence. Anyways, Shohei Otani will be undergoing Tommy John surgery, which is not surprising. I don't think anyone was surprised by this. It was weird because angels fans got so defensive about this. When the early reports, I don't know month or two ago that he was going to need the surgery. Basically when he stopped pitching whenever that was that he was going to need the Tommy John surgery and then the angels. No, those reports are inaccurate and we're, he's still going to try and pitch this year and angels fans fake news. Everyone reported the Tommy John. That's irresponsible. Obviously he's gonna fucking need it. What are we talking about here? Like I, it was a foregone conclusion before the season even started that he was going to need Tommy John surgery at some point because of the ligament damage that every team knew about before they signed him, but it was worth it to sign him because he wasn't some big international free agent where you had to sign him to a hundred and fifty two hundred million dollar contract. You basically pay chump change to sign him. He got. His three years of service time before his arbitration eligible, three years, four years, arbitration. And then he becomes a free agent. He's no different than than drafting him. Us paid a little bit too, to sort of quote unquote draft him as a player. So even if you lose what you will lose him for all twenty nineteen as a pitcher and maybe even half of twenty twenty. It's still worth it because you'll have the second half at twenty twenty plus what three or four more years. That's so fucking. And he's still here to Bank crops. He's still, he's still here to roll the poll. Let's not forget about that in his while he was pitching. Three point, three one, six hundred K's ten games. So you know what? You're missing on the mound. He showed you those flashes, but think about what he means that this team offense as well, the bright spot and we'll get into Shohei Ohtani later in the season as we start our award season, I don't want to drop a bunch of numbers on you right now, but let's let me just tell you this that offense ably he has had in my opinion a better year this year in the big leagues, then he did in his best season in Japan. I don't know where you're going with that, but I agree with that. Yes. So what he can mean to this team moving forward, even though he's not going to be on the bump that something to, that's a place where the halo fans can hang their hat on. And we talked about time limit. So I didn't want to get into the numbers and shit and still not going to, but I just know that I have in bed. I've got those fucking numbers, but I'm not gonna day between the line. Yes, we're going to say though, so that's all I've got for now on my rookie. Shohei Ohtani. Go ahead. Next question. So you are voting for Otani. Let's that said, well, I didn't even want to get into that year. That's Jay. Do you have toddy as your rookie of the year? All I'm going to say is our awards podcast is going to be so fire flame. Oh, that's a big tease. That's. Sees I will probably do more preparation for that podcast than any podcast I've ever that is what I respect the most about j. motherfucker does not fight for free you. You want shot at j. l. c. at the paper view fight you free cable television. Does. He gives you insight to his angles? Nope. So we'll see at the orange. Oh. DD gregorious. So this wrist injury, you know, tears the cartilage in his wrist, and I kind of figured that he would play through this when Aaron Boone didn't just Ford Lee come out with this information in a press conference. It was almost kind of like leaked indirectly someone's like, oh, hey, where were you know, we were back there talking DD. Oh, what's going on with Didi torque Cardoza risk might be off the rest of your, what? What how do you not lead with that? And that's on the table. So that's why at first it can't be that bad if you never led with it, and he never just outwardly explain this to the media. So it's not a surprise to me. DeeDee will attempt to play through this that rest has helped a little bit. But I will say, you know, they've had like Mark DeRosa MLB network was on the other day talking about how he had the same exact injury, he felt up hop. Yep, rove home and was like, that's it. I play my last game this year, so that's that's the type of injury that we're talking about. So I don't think you're not out of the woods yet if you're Didi or if you're Yankee fan, but it's a good sign that he's going to, you know, do the cortisone shots response to that, but it's it's I don't want to say it's a ticking time bomb, but it kind of is kind of is God. You pray to God that his absence doesn't affect where the end up playing this wildcard game right now. That's that's what you're really hope does not happen corrobos because there are some numbers that I do want you to be aware of in regards to that in regards to this slide as we're seeing because that's how ended up hurting that wrist was on a slide at home, and now they've experienced a slide against Baltimore, barely sliding by two thirty three rabbits to thirty three. You wanna know what that is best. Let's let's these batting average on the road. He only has eight home runs compared to like what, like almost twenty. Nineteen. Those are at home nineteen homers of the twenty-seven have been hit. Yeah. At home in that fucking phone booth of fair's fair though. His splits were not as bad last year home road splits were. Yeah, let's talk. Let's talk what's splits look like in Oakland. Oh seventy. One zero. Seven one. We're not playing bingo fucker. That's batting average. Oh seven. One zero extra-base hits for d. gregarious. That's that's I. It's I can only imagine what would have said after the timer. One thing I this has nothing to do with the injury. But one thing I would like to note is that this marks yet another year we're DD. Gregorious increased is so much up and down and weird is the season was for him. Yeah, eight thirty. Four p. s. that's currently thirty eight points higher than it was last year every year that he's with the Yankees. Yep. Gone up every year. These of the Yankees. And when we were talking about Dede at the beginning of the year, I remember saying that this will be his first year with an opium north of eight hundred and he's what eight thirty four thirty four. There you go. Speaking shortstops speaking of shortstops Dan's be Swanson has a ligament tear, and the Atlanta Braves are not really sure if you will be able to play in the postseason, which fucking sucks because he's part of that young core there. You know, if you're gonna flaunt it when you when he starts to get on the national scale and they put together all those like cool video packages for the fans that haven't been following the Braves all year. They're gonna. There's a lot of talk about a Kuna. There's a lot of talk about Albee's nukem the baby Braves, but Dan's Swanson is certainly part of that baby Braves, core native of Georgia, getting to the playoffs with your with your hometown team. I hope that it's not as bad, but it sounds like it's, it's not very good. A ligament tear. No, no. What's between his between his ring finger and his wrist on his right hand, right. So talking about being able to throw the ball, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, Charlie, colder Sohn is the individual who will be replacing him. And if you remember, Charlie Kober Sohn burst onto the scene last year in the ill CS replacing cedar five for eleven verse. The cubs in the l. c. s. but he's also the guy who's played left field for Kuni junior when Cooney was hurt earlier this year's you mentioned. So he's got some versatility to him and it's not like it's a complete negative with Culbertson the lineup. Now it's just not Danny Swanson who's been a big part of what the Braves of done. So hopefully he can reemerge again, but this fall around the table here. Does this prohibit the Braves from advancing in division series? No, no. I don't think so. I don't think so either it is a loss. It is not a crippling loss, Gabby we. We've been talking about this for like, I don't know. I feel like five weeks now gimme being out as the Blue Jays manager. It is now official. He will not be returning as the Blue Jays manager next year. I guess if there's a couple different ways that we can look, this was John Gibbons tenure as Blue. Jays manager will be looked back at as a success. And what direction do you think Toronto goes in now? Because the reds, I saw the list of candidates that the reds are looking to interview for manager, and it's very clear that they don't give a fuck about this trend of young managers. They don't give a fuck about that. Do you think that Toronto will buy into that or they're just kind of interviewing whoever's out there? I think Toronto will start to take a look at towards the more progressive approach of having some youth in that clubhouse in that driver seat because they mentioned parting ways with John Gibbons, partly due in part to his old school mentality. And I thought it was really cool that he and the GM sat down together and laid this out because too often you are given that. Lip-service about this big, a mutual decision. It's agreed upon, well, you actually kinda saw that you kind of felt that that, hey, I understand that I'm probably the old dog on the block, and I understand that these young kids might need a fresher voice. I also think I'm good guy who could be here a part of a rebuild, but I understand that my time, here's specifically maybe up and it might be better served for everybody involved to sort of be reinvigorated through a change of scenery and the front office said, thank you for closing out our twenty two year drought in the postseason your rallied a nation behind our ball club, we will ever be in debt for that, and it's not often in the game, a baseball. Do you get amicable parts from a front office and an old school manager, especially in this day and age. So it's good to see a front office tip their cap to one of the old Cowboys on his way out. If he indeed does not find another place, which I. He might to to answer your initial question which was how will the Aira of John Gibbons be viewed? I think it has to be viewed as a success to Dallas point. They broke the postseason streak. I think John Gibbons, like probably three quarters of managers in baseball gets exactly as much out of his team as the talent is on the roster, right. Yeah, not a lot more a lot less. And when this team had a lot of talent, they won ninety three games. They want eighty nine games the next year they went to the AL CS both years and as the talent has dissipated and impart. That's been a lot due to health of the pitching staff, but is the onfield talent has dissipated. The winds have declined ninety three to eighty nine to seventy six seventy two right now with with three games remaining. The one thing. The one thing I do want to say about him just because it is my duty to defend the old dogs. It is my duty to defend the keepers of the game, him being the old guy him getting that label. Roquan Yuli gurriel had mentioned going through a struggle earlier in the season. John Gibbons was the individual who was responsible for bringing him out of that funk by virtue of put his arm around him, letting him know just reminding him, hey, buddy. Take a look around this, the fucking big leagues you deserve to be here. Why don't you go out there next up inning with a smile on your face and remember how much fucking fund this is to play. And he mentioned that in a interview and actually like steered the interview in that direction because he felt so strongly about that and very young kid to have that feeling that impression from an old manager, that's a big deal because that young kid, you'll you real tapped into some advice that was given to him by his father. Years ago, and it took that old guard that old keeper of the game to put his arm around him to remind him this game is still fun, and you're still the fucking man. So it's it's not like he's washed up and beyond his years. Again, just a change of scenery. I think like that take. We can move onto Roberto who SUNA reaching a plea agreement. They also booed this shit out of Iran, oh, which I happen to particularly enjoy. I mean, fuck that guy. The whole thing about you. You know, the fact that there's no criminal charges does does not mean that the person is absolved of guilt, and we talked about this on dial Dallas. Brayden. How I feel about this is that if MLB felt comfortable enough to punish him to the fullest extent of their domestic abuse policy, they weren't doing that on here. Say they weren't doing that. Without good enough reason to do it. You don't just throw an eighty game suspension at a guy on rumors. There had to been something that they either saw or they read or they listen to that said, you know what? Fuck this guy were sticking them with the fullest penalty that we can give for this violation. I got to tell you the last seventy two to maybe ninety six hours for me have been. Been a world wind of a motion in regards to shit like this, and I'll get into this on dial with db, but I almost start to think now have leagues and their approach to to criminal behavior or anything has shown a light on how fucked up our Justice system actually is win. As you mentioned jeered a league is punishing somebody right to an extent further than the actual legal system that our country is supposed to be abiding by is that what sport is doing is showing us how our country is. Well, let me get back to me having seen a former teammate of mine in airport and posting a picture because I hadn't seen this dude in over fucking ten years. I did see that and Milton Bradley and I had no clue really clue, zero clue. Do you understand like for me, obviously, young kid, twenty four, a rookie. I was. Paying the internet wasn't what it was. Then I wasn't paying attention to anything that Milton was doing like it's not like Milton and I were hanging out off the field going to dinner and shit. He was just he was a hard ass and a salty vet knowingly. So who who was really nice to me who just was a nice guy to me joke with me. And so our relationship or my relationship with him very brief was just different. So when I saw him, it all came flooding back like him talking shit to be on the field talking shit to be the clubhouse talk shit about the game and shit, and then like the conversation comes up and sure I do the homework and I start to look at some of the shit that he's gone through and I'm like, Jesus Christ. Man. Like I knew about like some of the stuff that he had dealt with mentally, but I didn't know anything about his transgressions if you will, with his with his previous spouse. In current spells, I still don't know anything about, and I'm like, it's just not my not my area. So. But the bottom like I will. I take like you don't put your fucking hands on a woman, homey periods, straight the fuck up. Like I'm not on board with that entity point in time. So getting now into sooner to your point him not being punished legally, but baseball, taking the stance you knew it was going to be impactful in that clubhouse. And I think a tip of the captured go to the Houston, Astros veteran stewardship all a a Justin Verlander and even guys like altuve AM. Sure. And other individuals who have done a great job of making sure that this did not sidetrack this club. Yeah, very easily could have been done sure. Could've Addison Russell also speak in a dish bags unlikely to reduce to rejoin the cubs for the postseason which is not surprising to me whatsoever. Little backstory here if you're not familiar. So his ex wife. Last year posted a picture on Instagram and the caption was along the lines of, you know, feels great to not get cheated on anymore, something like that. So she only talked about getting cheated on one of her close friends commented on the photo and implied that there was also physical abuse. She deleted the entire post and after I think Addison Russell had to release a statement saying, this is not true. The league tried to conduct an investigation and his ex wife did not want to comply with that. Shouldn't wanna help out with that, which is totally her right to do that. It does not mean that she's full of shit if she doesn't. If she chooses not to help out with the investigation. So then fast forward to about a week ago and his wife, ex wife, posted a blog detail in all kinds of bad shit for Addison Russell. We're talking physical abuse. We're talking emotional abuse where talking. Anything that you can really do to a woman that you can be a scumbag for? It seems like he did it. I mean, he was and the timing corrobos and the timing of this is this is this is calculated my friend and I'm not. I'm not knocking anybody for that. I'm just I'm just bringing that to light. This is calculated the cubs in the biggest part of their season right now get hit with this, get hit with Addison Russell and this shit. Now, like that's the kind of stuff that does affect clubhouses because now somebody has to come up in front of the club Alison talk about this. We have to address this. We have to address how we're going to move forward. You don't know about the chemistry and what that's like. Now that is changed. There's there's a lot that goes into this coming to light right now, but it all boils down to hopefully. This person hopefully his ex wife or you're not divorced yet, are they know they are? Oh, they are. Okay. So hopefully his ex wife. Is able to find yourself in a position where she can continue to get the help that she needs to get over these things or get through these things or make these things better. Because I mean, there's just no making light of what situations like this can do to individuals mentally. So I think most importantly, you hope that she can find a way to be okay in her life. And if you're out of San Russell, probably probably some time to reflect always some time to to look within and yourself. Right.

Postseason as we said at the beginning of the show, it's not quite yet upon us, but I, I hope that there's not never mind. I do hope that there's some kind of Corky fucked up situation where we have like multiple one game playoffs to get into the one game playoff I wou I ever for chaos Dallas. I am rooting for chaos. So you know, obviously the brewers are my National League team will get to the brewers a little bit. I've also adopted the Rockies as my NL west team. They are wreaking havoc right now the starting nine digital show Mrs. Dallas Brayden because I've got this fucking idiot hubs. Seven on the digital show who wrote off the Rockies after they got swept by the dodgers and I was like, do the team destiny, don't do it. Don't do it. You'll regret do note that they got swept CHAD'S shut the. Fuck up the Rockies are the team of destiny in the National League West. I don't know how many times have to say it before you get into your thick book and skulls out there. The Rockies are not going to roll over and die for you. They're going to fight until they don't have any airlift in their breath. That is what this team is. This year. They finish with the nets who they happen to be three and one against on the season for office. That's pretty good. You gotta like we're that's heading shared it. The dodgers the dodgers finish with the giants who they happen to be seven and nine against on the year. So you like hell that shapes up. So can I just propose something because this is a very good idea that why p came up with this morning when I got, I never get here before noon, but I came in this morning and it's more like a chill relaxed environment. Me and why p were shooting the shit about baseball. And he said, what about in September? If you can make trades on technicalities? So what if as incentive for the cardinals to get the giants to play to actually try against the dodgers. What if they could trade like a prospect? If on the off chance, you have to win at least two out of three and you get this prospect. I'm like that idea. Like if you're if you're a team that's just fucking out of it and you're just end model. This is like a this is like in game achievements. Yeah. Like like you unlock this unlocking an ultimate team and ultimate team plan if the cardinals are like, all right, we'll do like a player to be named later. You pick from this pool of five players or whatever. And if you win two out of three or better in that series, you get the player like this would never happen. This is a wild while it's working right here. What I'm getting ready to say, not what we are currently talking about. Yeah, I'm just going to lay this out there just to give a tengible feel to the idea that would be like the Oakland a.'s saying to the Boston Red Sox Heo. We gotta lefty down in AAA by the name of, hey, Seuss Lazardo who strikes out people in his sleep. If you guys could just see to it that we actually play this playoff game at home was Ardoz all yours. That's essentially how this boils down. And I don't mind that at all. I don't mind it at all because it is an opportunity to see who really does believe in the idea of them being a team of destiny because I would love to see the Rockies right now or over a prospect to make sure to make sure that they're the team standing at the end of this can think like because right now right now with three games left, some teams have four. We could be seeing some of the craziest shit go down in GM offices across the gate. It would be lunacy kind of because people would your entire GM. Ship your entire tenure could be defined in the last forty, eight hours of a September playoff run. That's fucking insane. And the caveat has to be that the prospects cannot impact the Kurt race. Right? Would have to be the deal. We can't bring these guys up. They can't be a part of. That's not. This is you're just getting a piece now and would there even be a contingency where or like a, let's let's throw out an end to this. Is it a prospect? No higher than AA? Is it a prospect because how bad do you want get a prospect? Yeah. Is it a process? Exactly. So if you're giving me prospects that have major league time, like there's gotta be something more to that, you know, like if I'm gonna give you a guy who's already got tick, will that's gonna cost you or could be like international pool space. Yeah, that could be very interesting casket. Could be anything into amid to it, like p? Yeah, it's it's a very good idea from from y. p. who's he's? He's a little upset about his cardinals. He's a little upset about his cardinals, who became the story of the middle of the summer there for a little bit. What are they came arbiter, even have back carpenter was making salsa. People were eating it and hitting homers the young pitching staff, the four rookies the four rookie horsemen. Yeah, we're slicing and dicing of. He said they choked. I said, you just ran into the brewers. That's two different things. Those are two different things. What happens is you're in to the NL MVP? Yes. Lap. Did that thing is or or did you tune in the word show podcast? Yes, yes. Tickle the balls, tickle the ball loose to say. Might not be. I don't know. We have a word out yet. That's true. Tune? It's. That's what happened is they ran into, they had into fucking caught out there, bugging in Milwaukee, and he's so unassuming to like, he's, I don't even think he fully understands the scope of of what's going on. So no, he doesn't solely what we're what we're looking at is the cards. The cardinals dodgers in Rockies are basically trying to see who's going to play either the cubs. Yeah, just for clarity. The cartels are a game back, not a game and a half. Okay. Okay. Yeah. So I mean, what's also what's nuts to think about is one of these two teams could go from potential division winner to potential early vacation. It's could go as much potential. I can't fucking wait. I can't winning the division to fuck in making travel plans. Yes, hold on because we're going to straight. No doesn't blinds baseball. That's what we're looking at here. So you have right now. The Braves are obviously in the brewers clinched. They're going back to the postseason and the analyst is just up the air up in the air dodgers Rockies it's it's going to it's a dog fight for the NFL west. It's a dog fight for the NL central, and it's a dog fight for the second wildcard spot. Man, I guess let's butts send it to the panel here. How do you think that those three spots fill out. I've got Colorado taken the west. Yep. I have got. I've got the cubs playing. I really want to be playing the cardinals. Yeah. Yeah, but I don't think they are. I think the cubs will be playing. 'cause don't the cubs play the cardinals to finish? Yes, yes. It would have to be a four-game sweep. Yeah, for the carton. Right? Not yeah, not happening. Dodgers are gonna win the west. I've stuck by that the whole time, and I like how their rotations lining up to this weekend. We got Kershaw on Saturday and we got bueller on Sunday bueller you'll learn. I do like that. I mean, listen, if you if you drew it up, that's how you drew it up for the dodgers and I think they're going to they're going to pull it out. I think the cardinals are on the outside looking in. I think the San Francisco Giants safe buck that we've had the dodgers shitting are serial way too many times it's time for us to take a swat over that cereal bowl. That's what I feel. I think the dodgers are super bad and won't stand in the way. Also I do not. Like the way that the pitching probables lineup for the cardinals against the cubs. See the cardinals is out there who's your wildcard game? Ocoee signings. Rocky's Bru, which I think would be fantastic wildcard game in the Burs winning central. That's just I want to take the time to apologize to big cat as well. I inadvertently sent out a tweet yesterday talking some shit on the on the total accident. It was supposed to be urging tweet for the for the as and they did rally at that same times. So I did just want to send out another future apology for any other mistake in tweets, and that might demean the cubs, but it's an effort to rally the as Paul big of you Dallas that's big of you. I respect that a lot about that. We, we try if if you look at the not just the probables, but just just the matchups here between the teams that are finishing out their seasons with each other. The brewers are winning the fuck central. They are. The cubs are just backpedaling. The cardinals are not going to go down without a fight and the brewers. I feel like they're just hungrier. They're more confident. The cubs are backpedaling right now. Are you guys looking at the match ups? It's Hendrix Wainwright, hamels Michaels, and then tentatively scheduled as flare ity Montgomery. So I'll give all give the first tilt to the cubs Bill, like the second one's up in the air, nNcholas? Yeah, he's been. He's been getting not as good in the second in who was. Who's who's well Flaherty Montgomery probably favors their cards. Right? Yeah, sure. So. A lot. That's that's two out of three per the cards. It'd be can little magic. You get three out of three, and then he got some mo- Joe, and that's four out of forty, five yourself in the book debts, find yourself there, you know, scarves, and notes. You do know who the brewers are finishing the season against correct. I believe the brewers finish against the lowly ale, central Detroit tight, they sure do Dallas about that. I find that to be quite interesting that to be about assault is a fucking landing. As you can find. Look at j you wanna talk about shit shaping up. You're playing the fucking grace closes thing out. You haven't seen this club all year. They're terrible. And that is who you're postseason life tinged upon, which is like two final note to. No, go ahead. It's at home. It's Milwaukee. The brewers winning the central. The brewers are winning the central that is statistical fact. There's okay. They are winning the NL central. That's I will not go with their winning the central. They're winning the NFL central. If there was that you thought could be one today, which one would it be in by who. It isn't like what team could put the dagger in it. We'll see your that was a joke, and you were just supposed to keep rolling with it, but you and that's, it went over your head. No, no, this is not a one thing. This is this is. The brewers are winning the NL central. Are you you're not with me on this. With James j. I mean, if I had to put money on it, I would put the cubs, but I don't think you're like crazy person. I think it's I, I, if I like their chances more than I liked the rocks really, I'm not. I'm not in on this Rockies thing with you guys. Why? Because I stood by the dodgers all season long and that's, that's his stubbornness that's not stubborn. Actually the three best pitchers lined up to pitch this weekend with you included. Oh, the dodgers do? Yes. Team destiny. Nobody cares. There's nobody cares. Stat, boy. You've heard of destiny kicked quantify that. No, you can't. You can't prove that it doesn't exist either though part, you really can't fucking yesterday button on your calculator. The Braves still have a chance for best record in the NL. Correct? Yes. Okay. So that's still on the table, man. I'm ready for a while be while baseball. I'm ready for a wild weekend. Baseball. The AL field is set though, aside from wherever the fucking wild card games being played, we'll we'll have plenty of AOL talk once the the playoffs get started, but there's there's no drama. Really. You know, everyone's in best records, say the only it's not drama. It's just where where the Oakland a.'s play, that's that's not. That's not dramatic. We know where they're gonna play coming over here for that. That you're fucking sweet s. This is going to be like when Kane and the undertaker finally got together to to take out like stone cold, Steve, Austin. It is. It is. Oh, right. Yeah, it is. It is bad news. It is bad hopes better hubs better. Fucking run. Oh, do we know where hopes lives? Do we know where hubs Ray take a three hour bus to get here. Doesn't it? Yeah. He lives in Guantanamo Bay. She's rice. Yeah. Why sways age so poorly? Yes, terribly even out even go as far as they terribly okay. Without further ado, this is quite today. I could hear you smile and quite day. Rocky. The first ever interview that I've ever done with David Ortiz. My hero, a Red Sox legend, a Boston icon. He's on starting nine. He loves Dallas Brayden. In here. David ortiz. I were here David Ortiz, big Papi before we started recording David and Dallas talking about how much David Ortiz loves Chris Davis. I'm never gonna hear the end of this now because this guy, all he talks about is the as I live with this dude every single day. He's hyping up the, they're actually a very good team. I hope that you make it to the division series David. If if you have a Red Sox as matchup in the division series, who do you like bro? We honest with you. I saw all the as plays against Boston, this regular season, you know what to expect. They are similar teen. The how often they have pitching and they have so many young talent. I mean, you go to the rest of you be like, oh, we got movie, but they got Davis. Yeah. And then you go to the restaurants. Oh, we got AD Martinez, and then they had this big boy left in the Chapman, not Olsen. Models and bro like, and then you go to the pitch, man. I mean, it's it's very similar, but the thing is that scares me the most, how the as. They are heating like they are planning on the east coast field and to be on with you to heat at Auckland. It's impossible like if you don't know if you go to the weather over there, help me on my help me out with that. The weather over there. I used to hate it to go and play Oakland. I mean they had huge feel and then you never know if the always gonna fly of the ball. I mean most likely the boat don't go away over there. Now these I mean, look at this maniac that they have Davis. He people not paying attention to that kid probably because he's opened a west coast. He forty bombs in a hundred years in a row closing on fifty, right? Forty, six. He's supposed, he's closing in on fifties. Forty seventy. Just hit another tank last night. Bobby forty-seven to them thing. I'm telling you. He swing a, he don't care. Yeah, everywhere he heating bowl everywhere. Like I mean, Buddha kid on a field. I hit an east coast and that'll be like seventy bombs because that's what I'm telling these guys. Pompton Oakland. New York does not want any part of Oakland in the wildcard game out in New York and that fucking phone booth. No chance throw part of these tiling you. I wasn't as plays man and they play like they don't care. They come in to whoop you. You know what? And let's roll. That's how they I. I watched him play and I was like, man, this thing real. This is for real right here. Them when how much preparation did you do as a hitter? Was it based on just it didn't matter who the pitcher was or would you look at the the problem pitcher, douse Brayden it'd be like, I don't have to. Do any work today, you homework again, anybody because everybody, everybody, because the thing is on your best day you go for as deal were there? Will he feel the jets take him deep? No, we didn't fail. We. We didn't show the much. We put a couple of bad against, but we. But we. Yeah, but I can tell you about. Had no damage against me, but they're like, I felt like there were times I just could not get poppy out. I couldn't get you out, but I was like, you know what? If he's if he's not making three left turns than it's a win for me, if he doesn't visited onto wave land, I've won. Let me tell you what I love about him when he picked. He don't have day. Listen, he didn't have you see this key from Tom, but right now snow, it's knows no. How ninety miles an hour? Will he had a close? He fight differently gyp pity's this guy right here. We had the Pelotas. Yeah, I liked he body language like people are battling with, no, I'm coming to get you if you if you want to do something about it do it, but I'm gonna. I'm gonna show you that I'm gonna come to get you. That's how he pitched. And I love her though. You don't say. So that was the only way to that was the only way to attack these guys because you, I mean the veteran lineup that I was going against when poppy was there. That's a different ballgame. Because these guys before I even got to the plate, not that they had already saw their video and done their homework. They knew what I was capable of what I was a capable of into get hall of fame, caliber players out. You can't go out there and second guess yourself. You got to say, here's my nuts. This is the best I've got. Let's see what you got. That's how it was. I always appreciate the guy that there's not fake other they, this is what I am you like it or. No, I'm not here to my friend on here to do my job. You know what I'm saying? So that's what I like to go by business. You don't saying by reality is you gotta do homework about everybody because like I say, hey, you can go awful teddy in a heartbeat. Yep. Yeah, that's that's fine game. It's like it's like on your best day pitcher, you facing this line of that is not attacking all of a sudden they scored Tanner for you. That's how he goes, man, you gotta be on top of your game all the time. You're three sixty four career hitter against Dallas. By the way. All singles, all singles. Let's keep up blueprints. I wanna ask you man. Just because obviously you've had such a tremendous career in a great ride from your time in Minnesota to who you became to win. Papi showed the fuck up in Boston. I wanna know raw talent. 'cause you talked about Chris Davis and being able to identify like how crazy it is, what he's doing. Aside from him, what is gimme a name of a guy that you saw might have been even back home in a lot of publica, but you're saying to yourself, you know what this dude right here. This is a talent that I just have never seen before a raw talent. This guy is mind blowing, wow, he is open my eyes who who is somebody like that? Or who was somebody like that for you back in the day? Look, I I play with so many guys and reality that in baseball, some some guys had very talented, but the lack of paternity sometime play a role in and the gay and. And there's a lot of talent sometime I get to be laws because of the lack of paternity. That's something that as a player you can control, you don't say by, for example, I I was though star game a nice oldest guy, first baseman for the brewers. I. So this guy. My last year plane. We play against Cleveland in I on dugout and he was hitting biting practice, and that's a player dollars. You've known you have did the the knowledge to know when a guy have that good delivery superior when a heater, how some split him to is coming out. He's bad when he debates with. I mean, you can see that because we don't have to work for NASA to know that the baseball players when you play in the bigly. So I'm watching this guy hit and unlike men, this guy, they don't play this guy here, but this guy potential. I mean, they, he have a lack of paternity over there. All of a sudden he traded to to to Milwaukee and look what he's doing. I was watching all star game. And I was very happy because everytime I see tuition like that picture myself in play Minnesota have a lack of -tunities even when I first into the wrist socks, I wasn't a guy that every day, but something happened. They give me the opportunity and then a sudden I wasn't alive for fifteen years. You don't say is hard work, man. It's not the house because there's no magician here. Older people can predicting they're gonna happen, but that doesn't necessarily mean that you're going to be that way by. There's a lot of guys out there. They get the paternity to play day, appreciate it in they go at it so that they get a pretended to play from the very beginning and they think that's normal and all of a sudden day into losing their job. You know, go back and forty sold depending how home you are and how will you wanna be doing some work with Sharon, tell us what you do. Sharon. I'm gonna spokeperson for certain I I won't vacation. Oh, baby, we got you. We got, you know that. I, I join a couple of months ago. I'd being so much fun. You know, we get some of the fans to take around the city of Boston. You know how sort of called a CD, you know, and Cheriton they wanna make sure that people get to know the unbelievable Joe that they are doing with their hotels. They had this align hotel. There are joined them Marya. I mean, they can tell you tons of different name renaissance that is part of the line of the church, family and man. Let me tell you. I mean, I me when I go to a hotel, you know, I wanna make sure that I have a nice, you know, and I wanna make sure that when once I'm the facility people, you know, help me, I would things just walk last night into a hotel right here. Not Terekhov and he was like a drink three where it was so nice. You know, I mean, the the the the facility was really good. They even give. They even give me a free tickets for during the hotels give before was like, boom, I'm on. New York poppy if they're handing out free shit, New York, that'd be careful. Goes down right. So I gotta ask you because this is a question that's been debated for while now about like the greatest Red Sox team of all time. If this Red Sox team in twenty eighteen, they have the franchise record for most wins. If they win the World Series, is that the greatest Red Sox team of all time or is, is there another team in there that stands out to you? Hey, result are the ones that give you the honor to be who you going to be that team Dominy wings in winning the World Series. I mean, what else can you say? But doesn't the fact that the four team like nothing can top that because the burden that they had to face with eighty six year World Series drought because I think what you guys won ninety eight games that year. I don't think that the regular season win total matters. Like there's nothing that could ever top you'll for. I don't. I don't really like to discredit the job that anybody normally do. We did a great job back then we basically. Break, occurs people cold it. I don't think it was a curse I it was. I think it was just everybody get lined up saying and the same direction because we noticed that after the two thousand three season that we were good. Now, let's execute a teen. That way. We have different result and the following season Bom. It happens. You know what I'm saying? But a little bit more luck. You know what I'm saying by? I always believed that the history in the gain never gonna change. People just going to keep them not in things of the gang. And I know that division this year. Wasn't that good. You see how Baltimore less what one hundred eleven games. Yeah, hundred twelve game. I had never play during the year that I play a had never seen board to play Dr bad. Yeah. You don't say it only sixty and a half games back. Two. Two months out of I two. I mean, they were out what youn-. Yeah, I think they were out of it would pitchers catchers, reported. I never seen a Baltimore team playing better fat. Boating was the competition while I play. And then you go to Toronto, Toronto wars winning going into the playoff while I play multiple don't was like like playing against the Yankees playing against the Red Sox plant Toronto was there in the competition. You see, how breakdown this year Tampa. I had to give so much credit to cash the manager for for for for the race, man. I mean. They, he have a whole group. Hold young kit trying to figure things out. And they, we have play this year. That'd be unbelievable. Man, I got. I gotta give you that. And then they had this kid Snell. I saw him when I was on my last year. A nine. Oh, for fact that that key was gonna be special embroiled. Listen. I'm so glad that I've retired. I keep pitching to the day and I was like, wow, plus, like like, even when you are watching the game on TV is I mean, d- you told me we have a different view to watch the game because we played the game is the knowledge is different. Like when I'm watching the game, I, I watched like I'm in it and I watched his keep pitching today. The way he hide the ball. He's FOSS, pulled away. Just come to the strike zone. He's breaking ball. He. I mean, he got me buckling up and I'm watching the game on TV though. Yeah, you're following along in the sequences. You're going fastball up here comes that yet yet. You. Oh, Donna, d. Oh. Do you don't say like, it's fun to watch. You know, what is good is fun. I mean, he might be decide John Lee. Yeah, a, he played for the team probably not not going to be in the playoff right now. So they're in the National League. They would be like first place say so. So that tells you, you know how complicated these games? Yeah, you don't saying so. I think if the guy come into the playoffs, the rest are come to the playoff in day. The the. If they dominate the way they have regular season. Hey, can I be questionable because you talked about the as the Red Sox and the and the raise who you got is the ale manager of the year of those guys. That's what it's gonna come down to that group. Look, man, Eddie division that they go between those three. Is good to me because. When you go to the as man and you look at the way they have played a game the way they had done things. You need to have a goo- head for that to happen in that goes to the manager. Yep. And then you go to Alice Cora who as a first year managers going for the record book. Getting sation wise died special, and then you go to Tampa where we A-Team wasn't in the map Luca world play. Right. And then you think about the knowledge that cash highs, that's a manager. That's the only way you can keep Grupo kit together a level. So it's looking good to me any aggression to be honest. And the last question that we asked to all of our guests is if you could go back in time to witness any moment in baseball history, live in person, what would it be. You can pick one of your own. You can go back before you were born any moment? Baseball history. A have to be. When Bo Jackson walk all over the wall. Yeah. So I wasn't a golf tournament day we boat for Chris Tucker Coletta. Yeah. Even in this day when you look at both Jackson, it's impressive. He's a moose. Yeah, I'm, I'm telling you a, he can't be poppy. What am I coming to go for? Do you go to undermine like bowl right now, bro? Let's do it. He's impressive man, but I think he was one of the best athletes play the game ever, you know, and and and be able being able to watch a guy like him play a game. I mean, we have so many great athletes right now. I don't know. Man, Bo Jackson was something that I. It was. It was free, right? Ri. Right? So I, I will pay to going washing played again the way he used to play the game. Love that answer, David, Ortiz, a legend in the building. Thank you so much for joining us here today. Thank you. I big thanks to big Papi, David Ortiz coming on starring I, I didn't know that like you liked you like that. Pissed me off. I could see the see the disdain on your face. This is my day, like, you know, not supposed to like, don't like him. That's it's the brotherhood, you guys all the former players they stick together. And once you're not on the field of competition anymore, it's you guys are all just fucking boys and you know what, you know what was good to hear is because a lot of times it gets translated differently or it can come across differently depending on the personality of the other individual. But for him, not to look at me and think that I was a complete asshole and for him to kind of understand where I was coming from. And you know, as you said, you play against each other and you get a feel so. Yeah, that was that was good here. 'cause a lot of people I've had a lot of people that have said, like, bro until I met you, like I just wanted to fuck in fight you every minute of every day for how you or on the mound. And I took that as I wore that as a badge of honor, like off. Good. I'm glad because you know, I didn't have anything else like in the arsenal, right? Like this is all I is just not give. That's what happened when when Dave Portnoy came to me and we were talking about starting, is I who do you want co-hosts? He's gimme a list of people. And as I don't really know, like I don't know anyone nationally. I just know bossa people in us. Like what about douse Brayden I was like, isn't that guy? Just angry all the time? Think you'd be a good fit with you? All right. Let's try it out. See if it works and here we are sixty one episode later interviewing David Ortiz. That's right.

We keep doing this thing where we roll out new segments like crazy. Yes, hot. And that comes from the brain of Justin havens our beloved producer the hardest working man in the business. The brilliant mind that keeps Dallas and I on the right track every single week for this podcast. I don't know why this is just popped into my head though the as need to win that wildcard game the as to win the wild card game, not because I'm afraid of the Yankees, but because of the content that Dallas and I will be able to put forth during that series. We'll be unprecedented. Gold mine. I gold. I wanted to live shows. I wanted to a live show in Boston. I want to live show and Oakland. I compared it to biggie and pock turing together and doing a duet together on the east coast and the west coast. The crowds would be, I mean, Dallas, you be quite polarizing in Boston and vice versa. And Oakland. I've already gotten some of the heat and Oakland though back out and in April when I was out there and as fans were, were shouting me down from the field. Now, now is the most he'll heat, I think I've ever gotten a fringe lead frenzied group. You're that's a good. They're not angry their friends and they don't as fans do it a little differently as you felt the minute that they lay eyes on you physically, they will. You cannot escape their crossers. They will follow you in hunt you every waking minute in person online. Not so much, not a huge. Not a huge attack base. That's not how they roll. It's on how we do at NorTel. It's just not. But yeah, it's more of a in the street type of approach and and you don't say far less threatening. So it's a, yeah, I tell you there's been talk that African warlords drug lords are willing to sit over their armies to try to extrapolate the blood diamonds of content that we would be putting forth. How should this that's posted this come to fruition. So the new segment, the Jarrett's referring to kiss him goodbye. We have three legends of the game stepping away for various reasons. We're going to start with David Wright. Obviously he's having his send off. I don't really want to get into the captain's music right there. What the editing process is for. You know that we should also do like a segment within a segment called, how will the Mets? Fuck this up? I would like to you know what I'm not going to use. You guys can respond however you want. I'm not going to use my time on David Wright to talk about the shitty wilpon okay. No me neither. I'm gonna talk about David right because at one point I have I have no connection to the Mets. Okay. At one point, David Wright was my favorite baseball player year. We're talking like the prime minister the oh six to eight run David like it's so far removed that people are going to end up forgetting. But I would like to remind folks that his prime with longer than this but his uninterrupted prime two thousand five to eight which is age twenty two to twenty five seasons. We just thought he was getting going on a hall of fame career. His average year was three. Eleven three ninety four five thirty four. That's nine twenty eight. Oh PS with twenty nine homers twenty two stolen bases. One hundred. Twelve RBI one hundred six runs per year. He averaged at one point he put up eight wins above replacement in two thousand seven and followed up the next year with seven. David Wright was on a hall of fame trajectory before injuries derailed his career. He's the greatest Mets position player of all time. Yeah, I don't know. I don't know that there's the arguing that I really don't. I know a lot of love. A lot. A lot of love gets thrown to of. Got wind my fucking lanky on his name right now. The fucking first baseman. Oh, through. He's. Yeah. Didn't he win. Yes, he did. Yeah, but he'd be a great met. Yeah, I mean he, yeah. No, I'm not saying it wasn't a great met, but I mean, is MVP was with cardinals. People forget. Yeah. Oh yeah. I'm whatever. Yeah, memories taking a little bit of a hit in the last five to ten minutes. Dave, Dave, David, right. The reason this do needs to be celebrated is because when young guys show up to a clubhouse and they're looking for a lighthouse meeting, they're looking for someone to show them the way David Wright as been that guy since he walked into that clubhouse, even as young, even as young himself and to go through a deal with the injuries that he's dealt with and the circumstances in which he has played his career under for him to still mean into still be the guy that he has been for the guys that have come through that door for him to be as professional as he's been in the Todd Frazier acquisition and like there's just not a better example of how to be a franchise guy going and. David Mann, just just thank you. Thank you because Jay being on your train tells us two things or at least confirms two things for us. One, you absolutely were the greatest met to strap it on and to Jay. Being the cardinal fan that he is. Each just a bandwagon bitch. That's that confirms that. That's that's grass. Sorry about that. J. interesting. David, right through age thirty season among third baseman to debut in the integration era. Okay. Okay. Eighth in wins above replacement, the only guys ahead of him. Eddie Mathews, Ron. Santo George, Brett, Mike Schmidt, Wade, Boggs buddy. Bell and Scott Rolen. Pretty good. Wow, not good. I mean is everyone here's favorite David Wright moment the game three World Series home run. I'm just fucking gladdy. Got that. You know if nothing else in post injuries in and all that. I'm just glad that he got that one moment where the Mets got to the World Series. It was the game that they won and he contributed in a big way. And then like that one Mets home when they talk about David Wright and the kids at never got to see him play. That's probably one of the first images that you're gonna see, Dave right home run the World Series. Let me ask you. This is David Wright. Does his experience of getting back on the field this final time? Is that more poignant than any other moment in his career because he didn't win a World Series. I mean, if if he fucking hits a home run or something like that. I mean, how are we not talking about one moment in baseball history? If he hits a Homer, you take him out of the game. Yeah, for sure. Yeah. Yeah. Homer, you'll let them go back on defense. Yeah, and you take him out of the game? Yeah, no. Just have just have everybody meeting, but home plate do one of those things where they lift the guy up and then just literally lift him into the Doug Rudy is just like literally just to have his teammates, carried him off the field. In the third inning of like. Three to one game or whatever, and they're playing the Marlins too. So you have to be some kind of assault and not groove him a first pitch fastball. Like the Marlins have nothing for nothing. So if you're not grooving him, fuck in four seamer right down the dick. You are an asshole, sir. The ID David. Yeah, I need. We all need El capitain drop in diesel. Yeah, victim Artigas another guy. There is bidding farewell to major league baseball. What I would say probably one of the most underrated careers out of all the guys that have played through this generation or two generations really. He's right up there with with the best switch hitters in the game. Never quite got to that World Series though. I know seven with Cleveland got close, ran into the Red Sox didn't happen for them. And then in Detroit, you know, there was no championship glory for v mart in Detroit, but where would you would you rank victim are tina's amongst the switch hitters that he played with this generation. Ooh. I mean Val TRAN dally out of them ahead of you could just take Bill trans postseason in. You know what I mean? Bill like this is this is all save for for VR as far as a switch hitter concern or come in. In. The fucking Puma. Tax v mart was an extremely tough at bat because of his awareness of strike zone like he had a ridiculous field for his own and could spoil spoil spoil spoil shit. Y'all do dead pop as well. You know what I mean? Like we're talking. I don't know if you ever hit thirty, but he did hit thirty. Two home runs in two thousand fourteen his age thirty five season. Yeah, that was his best year. Yeah, he, he was always like, I just remember again, this is me. So I mean, fuck the bat. Boys were tough at bats. But he just he was a guy who could, like I said, he's the guy who I appreciate hitters who have the ability to spoil good pitches and a pitch that they can handle. And he is one of those guys. He was a guy because I mean, I faced him. He was, I believe, I believe he was. I don't know. He was in front of Mickey. I think he was behind McGee actually, and he was just part of that whole life in a lineup type thing. That's what v mart kind of did for that for that team. But he was a, he was a power threat. And again, the strike zone awareness was for me. Second victim Artnews that two thousand fourteen season three thirty five batting average that is the in MLB history. That is for a guy thirty eight thirty five or older. That's the fifth best batting average by switch it or ever really Chipper Jones in eight Mickey mantles in there. Well, no thirty eight thirty five or older. Oh, connects mic already had psoriasis of the liver. I think by thirty five Chipper Jones three sixty four max Carey in nineteen twenty five three forty three. And then both Passat and Chipper Jones seven. Those are the only people had of him Sada I always forget about Passat Avena switch hitter or hey, yeah. Always remember him more from the left side guy. Hawk Harrelson you can put it on the. Yes, he's gone. Yes, he is. He's a legendary broadcaster. And we we've talked about this before about how the the cornerstone team broadcasters becoming a lost art and that you know, no one will ever be VIN Scully known will ever come close to like the Audi fucking years. Was he in the booth? Like seventy seventy five. He's the goat. But yeah, there's the, it's a lost art now. And I feel like a lot of these broadcasters that are coming in. They're, they're young bucks. And I think the whole point is to try and make them be the next VIN Scully which I mean, if you're going to be the next VIN Scully, you got to get in there pretty young. So maybe they become that. But right now, you know the game losing hawk Harrelson's voice. That's that's a big loss. Yeah, I remember you know, if I once I started getting MLB TV in two thousand in ten or eleven back then out switch the broadcast the White Sox broadcast sometimes just to just to go back and watch the home run calls like I would go back to wash the home run calls when when Meinie went to the White Sox, I started like that was really when, like, you know, hawk became one of my personal favorites. Yeah. Yeah. I could appreciate him until then dropped. One of the most famous lines ever. And it's beautiful because it works and it's not foul or out of play or anything. But I believe during a game against the Mariners, he wants dropped a and the sax or full of semen. Really, that is really that is I can't even be yin to describe the level of savant nece that is going on when he conjures that up, like there is. Like Maya Angelou aspires to be hawk Harrelson what I mean. You know what I mean? It was. Oh my, oh, my, you know, those things on Twitter where it's like respond to this or quote this with your least or with your lease popular blank opinion like popular baseball or or TV, or movie opinion. I will miss hawk Harrelson far more than I will miss VIN Scully. Yes. Like I say that I'll miss Hok Hera the MVP. MVP there's a difference, right? I will miss Hok Harrelson's. Baseball calls like game action calls more than VIN scully's game action calls, but I will miss VIN scully's stories in between. Sure. I get it. I just like there was a, a one of them was hanging out with bucket, Jackie Robinson. All right. I could listen to hawk call, Dwayne, Wise's, catch and Burley's perfect game every single day of my life moving forward. And it would never get old. I'm not saying he's a better announcer than Vince gully. I'm just saying me personally, just Justin, I will miss him more so tip the cap to Harrelson David Wright and victim Artigas we will miss you here on the starting nine when it comes to below the belt comfort, there's regular underwear, and there's Tommy John, the revolutionary clothing brand that's redefined comfort for men and women everywhere.

I have that answer actually. What is the answer Christmas. Are you fucking high right now? What you what? Chris Davis's? Fucking years ever. Oh, I thought I took the question as the worst, like in the season in which they hit forty is his value? Yeah. Oh, yeah. Oh, so I took that like you were talking about crush Davis, and I apologize. I got very offended Jesus Christ's things about the as a research department look into this. Yeah, God. All right. Well, hey, hey, I, I don't know. Maybe the rocket sometimes launch fucking ridiculous direction. Shoo shoo, but always always on bias. That's my promise to the readers in the listeners. You have the answer to this question, are you going by Lois opiates by four hundred? I was going by. Lowest war per se. Yeah, not just by the eyeball tests because I'm really good at that because I played the game. You fucking pans, and I guess, yes. It is he? No, it's it's not. I wanna say it's gotta be who is the dude that did it with the brewers, like a few years ago. And then he went, of course, Carter's Carter crews are very close. My friend. He had point nine war in two thousand sixteen in forty one Homer season. That is the fourth worst ever. The guy who has the lowest. And again, it's war like there's the difference between point nine point, seven or whatever it doesn't matter. But the guy who is the worst actually has two of the worst three seasons. Okay. What can you give me like a like a decade. The like two thousand four to two thousand twelve era. Reynolds cruise? No. His nickname is that of an animal. At least the nickname, I know of two thousand four two. This is two thousand six and his third where season was two thousand eight. Nickname, is that of, wow, I know. I'm gonna hear him. Yeah, you guys will absolutely react that way. I'm just going to tell you since we're closed out of time. Yeah, Adam Dunn the big. Yeah, I never would have guessed that though. Four war in two thousand six and a forty home run season Joey. Gallows twenty eighteen. He's actually produced two point, five wins above replacement, which is the sixteenth worst forty home run season in MLB history. So our listener was onto something I think, but not quite the worst ever. If you go by Opie s which is what Jared was just talking about. Joey Gallo also not the worst ever, but it's a little bit closer. That is the sixth lowest Opie and a forty home run season. What Gallo has right now. Eight twenty two the worst. Todd Frazier's twenty sixteen. He had a seven sixty seven. When he hit forty home runs that year. The second worst Neely I can't go one podcast without it Albert pools his thousand fifteen. He posted a seven eighty. Seven p. s. forty home run season. Well, not not a that France is mind numbing -ly confusing. We are rapidly running out of time Dallas. This fan has a chance to go to game one of the Houston series, but has a research conference the next day. Do I go for it? I just researched it. You fucking right. You go for it. You'll live your life. Research conference doesn't sound that demand. You'll be fine as a Rangers fan. It's been a brutal season. Can y'all address the message? It sends to fire the manager before the final home series of the season in anything y'all heard about it to me, it seems like a strong statement that they didn't let Manny finish out the season much less the last three games at home. I would agree with you. I'm not excited about that. It sends the message that, hey, we want you fucking gone and that there might have been some shit going on that. Maybe everybody pretty good job of covering up in Dallas. No better than me when something like that happens. There's probably some behind the scenes stuff that was going on that would lead to something like that. You don't always see their team will make a decision to fire manager before the season is over and not do it until the season's over. It's probably a bad situation. If it's if it's right before the season's over like stand you for another fucking week, Jeff banisters old school manager will just say that. So you have to think about the direction. People are trying to go well, and the the comments afterwards suggest even from Bannister himself suggested that there was a communication issue or that the one of the reasons cited was banisters communication with staff and players. I have no idea whether that's true or not, but that's what the reporting on it was any final thoughts? Yeah. I was talking when I was talking shoot on you. Did I say that you did? I say your team was the cardinals? Yeah. I blacked out for a second. I like I, I was a little what you were talking about. I obviously obviously meant I know. So I just want to of the Indians there. Astor editor throw that in there Indians. I know your favorite team is Indian. We'll probably leave that unedited and we'll just put in your case in there at the drop it right in there. Again, the chaos that could ensue in the National League, give me a playoff game to get into the playoff game. I want it. I need it. I want game one sixty three before the one game playoff. We've been teased by the so many times to fucking have. Let's see. I want one sixty three. I won't sit for any other reason. To the grounds crew is been a hell of a season. We're not quite at the end of it yet, but we're gearing up for Tober. This is when we need you the most get on that voicemail. Give us your home or minutes. If your team is in the playoffs, if your team at a disappointing season and you thought they were going to be in the playoffs, we want to hear from you for the last podcast of the regular season, which will be next week. Yep. Well, no, because we'll drop on Thursday the day after the while, but it'll reflect on the regular. Yeah, it'll be a reflection and a look ahead and j don't forget to tune into the. Starting nine digital show? Nope. Oh, dialed in with was Brady note. David Ortiz interview note. The Ord show part the award show podcast. You laid it up for me, God dammit. We promote a lot of things. They're sure did to all that stuff. Or show podcast it's going to be. So it's gonna be awesome tune in probably about it. Thanks for taking the time. Comebacks. Big was up. Kill your on baby. Now, the way you look at. How you doing. I'm good. I'm good. You up LA. You know, a brother just chilling mayo? Yeah, hey, yeah. See the as doing Dan thing, the swinging bro. Fucking dangerous. Poppy boy, a talk to me about Davies. Kitman racy away. He's ridiculous. He's, he's a kind of guide quiet. He just wants to bang, man. That's all he wants to do is go. I was token to sun boy. Do they about him? I don't know if people paying attention to this guy's number. You know what it is to he forty bombs, three years in a row Oakland that is impossible. That is impossible. We were telling people know puppy forty years for excuse me, three years. Forty plus homers three years of one hundred plus RBI's in Oakland in that atmosphere that big ass yard how cold it gets it night and he hasn't had a ton of protection vita about a bra like, this is insane. This is like, I mean, probably because I play in the big league for so long. I noticed that is impossible. Especially in these days where everybody knows going on, right? It's clear is doing something impossible though. I'm very happy for intimacy up, man. I'm a fan of his now. Very excited to hear them here. The end of this now because I gotta deal with this as bias every single day.

"A brand new champion in professional sports was crowned last night. Men BA stuff with game six could we have a brand new champion in the NBA with the Toronto? Raptors trying to close it out. Jerry Recco here with all those details. What's happening, Jerry yoga morning. We're brought to you by town fair tire. Nobody beats town fair tire. No body and the blues. Indeed Stanley Cup champions. Ryan O'Reilly doing it yet, again, the Tranquillo hold now across for bonus Easter at the left point, shoots had scars J Paul Easter fires one for his first career playoff goal. And that's the worst afflicted in front may all Riley. And if that's the case he has scored in four consecutive games. The Saint Louis blues take a one nothing lead in game seven Kenny Albert was on the fan. Really a great call by him to actually in notice that the puck was tip because a couple of the other calls, there's no mention of it at all. And so all righty winds up being. Being the cons might trophy winner as playoff MVP twenty three points. Tremendous four one, the final blues beat the Bruins last night. Alex betrayal also scoring in the first Brayden Schenn scoring in the third and thirty two saves for Jordan Bennington. Here's Patrick maroon we win. Let's party this city's waited for forty nine freaking years, and we did this is going to be absolutely nuts. They've been behind this all year when we were down the dumps they stuck behind this. We did it a community that came together, and there's also author behind them, you know, place in January, last place, and they had guys like Tarasenko and everybody else, not playing well, and they were threatening to trade all of them and they fired their coach in December. I believe, yeah, what a weird asks emblem. They have on their jersey. Everything about it. I was thinking about that last night. Why a musical note? Yeah. Just very strange. We've gotten used to it over the years but it's a very strange logo. What like I don't know. I think it's a very it's a very. The musical note with wings. It's they're only they're only like tell you don't see that logo anywhere is there logos. Kind of like the Red Wings, you know with the tire and the wings off the Red Wings. Yeah. I guess, but as Saint Louis known for blues music as much as Detroit's known for cars, you know, these are the things I was thinking of when I was watching this game last night. All these things are going through my head, not so much rhino rally, Jordan Bennington. But is that the weirdest logo in sports while that was going through your head, always wondering whether or not, we're going to run out of orange cones streets? Yeah. Construction going to talk about that we had four construction vehicles zones in the way in today and it's just miles of cones. Yeah. They can keep making them though. You know, it's not like you're going to run out of material. What do you do with like old combs, like where to old combs, go to die? Well, sometimes fails people used to try to save spots for themselves by getting Collins. And I would know it wasn't a real construction thing. So right in the back of my car take the spot. So I have a heavy car keyed a bunch. You keep them. You don't throw them out. No. Because we use them actually as for further dogs for training. Have you had a monk around also? And they have their block parties at he can just off the block pretty good. Remember back in the day, used to be galvanized barrels of big heavy barrels. I think they had some of those today didn't they right? Not just Collins. There was some barons in barrels. Yeah. Barrels. All right. Here's. Okay. So here is a Riley cons might trophy winner. Pretty cool as he took a look most. These guys on here I pretended I was a kid and now to be, you know, on that with them. It's, it's an incredible feeling doubt, four four straight games. He scored a goal on. I think you scored the first one in in at least three of them. Here's Bennington thirty two saves. What was it? Like to always the call is heavier than expected. You know. But what a feeling. Yup. For them to be Stanley Cup champions for Brad, Martian and the Bruins, no dice stuff. Get over this over thirteen. Is there it's more than that? On something you ever forget, now's when they lost to Chicago. Wiz. Right. And so with that the NHL season comes to an end Saint Louis a very impressive ten and three on the road. And now you live false next Friday, June twenty-first won the NHL draft takes place the night after the NBA draft takes place. Right. Out in Vancouver, the Rangers end up with Capela Cocco us. I just don't have you heard either way with the devils are doing. Well, of course, are holding everything close to the vest. I think the wants to do that. I just cannot see them not taking Jackie. I just can't if they don't be unhappy. I'll be a static that will get Jack us, right? But I just think that they're going to take it. So my mind is wrapped around capitol Okaka right now. Hey. Be because we can guarantee nobody cares about hockey. Tonight at Golden State the warriors take on the raptors game city the NBA finals Toronto three games to two. We know Kevin Durant had surgery for the ruptured achilles yesterday, you guys have discussed that here was Steve Kerr's responsibilities been being thrown all over the place. I completely understand the world we live in, as Bob mentioned, the other night, there's going to be blamed, there's going to be finger-pointing. And we understand that. And we, we accept that he says, in the very Andy just wants to make sure that K D is okay main thing is our concern for Kevin. And these last couple of days just checking on him. Obviously everybody feels horrible for what happened in terms of the actual basketball, this will be the final game for the warriors at oracle arena. Draymond green bitter sweeping when talking about that. In something special. But I think also started to start or something that'll be even more Spanish when they move into San Francisco next season. Demarcus cousins Hetty win this come out, but a right way play bovines playoff, the energy at a crowd is. I'm sure to be electric, especially on. He's also the prime example of a guy coming off of and Killys injury. And let's face it. He's what six foot tens of two hundred and seventy pounds in big guy. So he's a big guy, too. So, you know, he is proof positive that you can't come back from this injury. The question is, is he the same player that he was prior to the injury? And does he have I keep Holt this quad? Yeah. Right. Say that came back got another injury, so that this is what you have to worry about, that's the collateral damage of an injury like the achilles it affects so many other things in your body. Now, if Toronto wins that will mean Mark and his brother powder, salt will be the first brothers to. Win NBA championship screen was told about that. I think this special really good with them about it. I rather them not be the only brothers, I still rather be no brothers, right? No brothers. Meaning they win. And they don't baseball Yankees and Chicago to play the White Sox tonight. We'll have it on the fan. Coverage seven thirty half and Nova are the starters, Giancarlo Stanton. And a couple of home runs for single eight Tampa as he is working his way back. You got the Mets home for the cardinals. Jacob degrom taking on Jack Flaherty. The cardinals got blasted by the Marlins last night as over the raise six to two. Red Sox beat the Rangers four three and there's a new leader atop the NFL east, while the Phillies were losing to the Diamondbacks to nothing. He would the Braves taking on the pirates Austin Riley with a game-tying home run. And then you push ahead into the eleven than it was him. Score the winning run the pitch sucked to the gap in right center field that's going to get out. It's going to get all the way to the wall, watch, Riley runs around second. He's wave around thirties, coming to the plate and he will score. Braves radio with the call. They do win. Eight seven the final score Ozzy Albee's the gaming RBI double. So Atlanta, who is now one six straight games. Take a one game lead in the NFL east. And then you had the brewers and Astros, you Justin Verlander striking out. Everybody matter of fact, Milwaukee struck out in fourteen innings twenty four times yet. They beat Houston six to three Mike new stockists with a two run Homer in that game. Lots of ks. But a win is a win is a win twenty four punt shots isn't what we were looking for. But w so, you know, turn native into a positive. Yup. Negative into a positive into a win. No doubt about imagine twenty four times striking out and you still come away with the win ver- lender at fifteen in self yesterday reports, say thirties, and the Dominican Republic have detained five men in the shooting of David Ortiz, the alleged hitman was paid seventy eight hundred dollars. Yeah. Now is that like one of those things where seven eight hundred dollars in the Dominican means that much here. But I mean it's just incr-. Credible. Dollars. I could tell you that. Yeah, but I do know having been there, the extreme poverty that you see, I, I don't know how far eight thousand dollars goes there. But and there's no there's still no motive everything that you hear about the motive is still speculation. Sure. Yeah. And I don't I guy like that. If there is something like that was rumored the people, they are going to try to protect them, too. If you think about that, because I mean, they don't want his name now to be solely throughout all of this eventually come out. But that's what I thought that press conference yesterday where they avoided every one of those questions about what was the motive what was the motive why did this happen? There were no answers, and I'm sure that they have at least some idea how they have to know why of course have been arrested. So I think that they're going to go out of their way to protect David Ortiz. If there's anything that he was involved with that wasn't above board. I guess, well, if somebody tries to shoot, you you're involved in something, you're pissing. Somebody off somewhere. Right. But it doesn't mean that he you know it's justified. I mean it could have been. It was a misunderstanding or something who the hell knows watch these these like unsolved murder shows. Yeah. Or solve murders? Yeah. But there's always as serious motive. Yeah. There is. But who knows if these guys were right? I mean it could have been a rumor about something he wasn't off with, and then someone got all worked up. There's just a million different scenarios out there. This is what I've come to learn in situations like this. You wait your wake, of course you myself in plenty of trouble. That's exactly what happened. Of course. That's what happened. Look, nothing. You know, all I know is that that guy walked right up the David Ortiz held the gun like he like a cop, and hold a gun and shot him right in the back. Yep. That and they obviously, there were seventy eight hundred dollars worth of, you know they were hired to do. This is the reason why they were hired to yours. Yeah. I know out of the SS in giggles thing. No, I understand that. I'm just saying that who knows if that reason was something that David Ortiz was doing that was bad. Or those idiots that did it ended up getting bad information, who knows. But there's no doubt that there was a hit on him for a reason. I just I'm curious to find out what that reason and lastly, first round US open a Pebble Beach gets underway and a few hours because three hour time difference tiger. Woods tees off at five oh nine at New York time here, he was thinking about is two thousand fifteen shot win at pebbles craziest, nineteen years. I still remember most shots I hit that week. It was just one of those weeks, where I, I don't know how how I pulled it off. But on seaside plan on never missed a putt inside ten feet for could you imagine never missing a putt insight ten that's the amazing. Thanks, so this, this golf course is completely different than when it set up for the AT and T and it's hard. The fairways are narrow, the roughest deep like all US open courses are, and the greens are fast and they are small. And if you play the afternoon, oddly enough because of the way that the, you know, the, the grass they use they use a. Anna grass which actually if you play in the morning it rolls. The putting is a little bit truer in the afternoon, this grass grows and flowers, you know not like the sprout but at though does grow suffer late. Yeah, the later, you play the tougher. It is. Well, it's tougher to read the greens. They how about that little subtle things. But rematch, ROY does have an early time of ten fifty one seven fifty one. What's really interesting is like Rory and Brooks kept getting those guys. They, you know they hit the ball, three hundred twenty five yards on this golf course it's playing about seven thousand yards and I was reading about it yesterday. You don't really need your drive. I read three holes, maybe maybe three hosts depending sometimes the long hitters just say, screw it. I'm just going to go forward and see what happens. But because of the way that they reconfigured about three or four the fairways they've kind of taken that club out of their hands. So this is really about accuracy off the tee as every US openness. But it also brings into play the guys that don't. Hit the ball, quite as long righty, which is good, which means that there should be more guys at the top of the leaderboard, not just the guys it hit the pole three hundred and fifty yards.

Hour 1: PK Subban

"They can't. Ready for Sherry? Period. Kellerman. Good morning guys. You're doing geysers gave a sports and there's the game of life in the game of life, far outweighs sports, and I have some serious news. I want to share with you this morning to begin the show, beloved former Red Sox superstar David Ortiz is out of surgery and doing fine, according to his family, a thority say, our tease was ambushed by a man shot in the back and nearly point blank range at a club in the Dominican Republic. Doctors say that our tease out of danger, but he is heavily sedated in intensive care. So our thoughts and prayers, of course, are with him. Stephen anything you want to share in the matter. Just thankful that he's going to be okay. We can talk about the five hundred and forty one career home runs and the career to eighty six batting average in three World Series, champions and be given a tremendous assistant to erasing that, curse that existed with the Boston Red Sox. But like you said, this is not about the game is about the game of life. And the reality is that violence seems to be everywhere. And for some inexplicable reason, you know, you, you, you can't get rid of the ignorant. You can't get rid of the evil. We hope not just as American citizens, but Canadian citizens, the world over as is just human beings that you could ultimately Aratu Kate this from our society, but unfortunately, no matter where you turn evil just seems to be everywhere, and for this man, somebody to shoot this man. And the back you're talking about a guy maxed at this philanthropic very charitable with his time as energy his efforts, particularly those in the medical Republic, one of my best buddies, my guy juvie. Here always protecting me. He's from the Dominican anybody that anybody that knows anything about big, Papi will tell you what a wonderful, wonderful human being. He is. And how much he cares about folks there. And that's how do think it was a beautiful beautiful thing that the person the assailant in this in all of this the crowd that was there alternately caught him and beat them down and helped and held him for the until the thirties got there to take him to the hospital before being arrested. So, you know, there's, there's a lot more love than hate in this world. Unfortunately, the hate that we see on fortunately definitely comes to the bonds, because somehow some way we manage to experience that. When I first heard about this early reporting rumors where it was he got shot in the leg. And I thought like a lot of people did like K leg. He's good. He should be okay. And then you learn that it's affecting his kidneys intestines liver like. Let's see how, you know, knock wood. David Ortiz is okay and can live a productive healthy life after this. And but, but you imagine that he's going to have to suffer some real consequences of the behavior of this lunatic. In an ongoing way to things you can say about someone in sports, right? That is like the highest compliment, you can pay them on the field off the field that or two things that apply. The David Ortiz more than maybe any player of his era, certainly no one has more of this stuff that he does. Let's let's talk about off the field. I everyone loves David Ortiz, wherever you go. You talk to people in the business. They love David Ortiz. The way he treats people and on the field. David Ortiz was one of the greatest pressure players I've ever seen. He was clutch that I can't think of what more do you want? If you're an athlete at that level to be a champion because of what you got inside because you're so clutch you come through under pressure, and then off the field of play to have a sterling reputation and it's not just like he's respected. This guy is loved. And so we're all thinking about him and hope in big Papi's. Okay. Nail question devastating in his native country. All right. I'm gonna make a hard transition because we are here, of course, for the NBA finals. So we're going to discuss it game five is tonight. The raptors have the chance to bring Canada their first chip ever. I do have some news on Kevin Durant. He's listed as questionable for the first time during these final series after practicing yesterday. Stephen, let me ask you this. Do you think katie's injury takes away from the raptors accomplishments in these finals? No, don't. And I'm somebody that picked the. Warriors to win this series. Obviously, I was wrong because I had and six and now they might get bounced five so there goes that prediction, but I will tell you that when you look at what the raptors have done in this series. You can't take away for what you've seen Kawai let it clearly is a superstar in this league. There is no doubt about that. But when you consider the way Lowry has played the way van bleed, has played the waste Jaka has played obviously, you take away his three point shooting because it's about eighteen percents. But everything else he's done has been stellar. When you look at a boxer, whose come off the bench, six blocks, one game twenty points, another and the level of production that you've got for them. Then when you see the efforts, collectively defensively, how focused how they've played gather Nick nurse in the adjustments choosing electing to take van fleet and insert him into the star into the starting lineup for the second half of both games three and four you're insane because of what happened game two and how to go to St.. The warriors ran roughshod over that. But the beginning that third quarter with that eighteen run a game to, to make that adjustment. From Danny, green the van leaves you see the adjustments, Nick, nurses, made you're reminded of the multitude of starting lot of threw out there this past season. His willingness to take chances make adjustments. The way they played together and last, but not least for them to leave the court after sweeping the warriors Inc. Golden State, no smiles, no celebration locked in focused. It tells you they're locked in. They know what's going to be required. They know it ain't over till it's over mentally emotionally and the way that they played you simply cannot say enough about how to Toronto Raptors a play this fall. Well I predicted the raptors to win the series and six games and found yourself. Yeah. But of course, of course, it takes away when katie's not playing because guys, I wouldn't have picked them K D was playing in this series. And it's no nap knock against your raptor. I think very highly of them. It's a commentary on what happened when Katie joined the warriors he joined a seventy three win team that just been back to back finals and lost one in the last possession of the fourth quarter in game seven at home and K D joined that team. So basically the message K D And the warriors sent is they were trying. They believed that the only way they could ensure themselves. Championships is to make the game non-competitive. They put together a roster. So devastating that they reduced the NBA to a non competitive league once team played the warriors, so does it take away from both course because you guys weren't going to beat the warriors, if Katie was healthy, but he wasn't healthy. And we knew that going into the series, and I'll tell you something else, which is important about your Kawai, Leonard K D with all the finals MVP's and people like Stephen a Smith saying he's the best player in the world. The reason he can put up the numbers. He does is first of all, he's an all time, great, obviously, and second of all, you can't double K D. You cannot leave Steph Korean Klay Thompson to doubled Kate but you a suicide mission. You can't do it. So Katie is facing single coverage and getting all these points offense is what he does coup. Why Leonard just gave you in the finals. Thirty in a pivotal game for thirty six fourteen with four steals and no turnovers. And he faces two guys loss minimum every time he touches the poll, so I'm hoping K D plays tonight, because I want to see the K D Kawai match up one on one but understand once he comes back the warriors are a better team than you guys. They have too much talent. But you know what even if he does come back, you stake, the raptors two three one lead, you ain't winning this series. Whether or not K D comes back Kawais, good. Again, them regard. But a championship in candidate any major sport, nineteen. Tonight. Why? Be. Your home is important. That's why gyco helps make it easy to save on homeowner's insurance. Because home is more than just a place. Home is where you have a cute little reading for those rainy days, when you want to curl up with a good book, but you don't even read so you just sit in there during thunderstorms and scroll through means on your phone and laugh in the darkness. The Geico insurance agency could help protect the dark meat filled corner, you call home. Call gyco and see how easy it is to switch and save on homeowner's insurance. Happy Monday to you. Ready? Clued that out tonight and a game five right here Scotia Bank arena. So as you just heard Leonard has helped put Toronto on the custody of the franchises, first championship ever Mack is the most important player to a fan base in sports. Took it away off started off. I'm going to tell you. I'm going to tell you, the answer's yes. Oh, I'm gonna tell you to answer. Like I said, I you know, I'm an honest man, you call me whatever you want. For better or worse. I'm an honest, man, I told y'all before the show began off the air. I don't know. No damn hockey. Okay. Only thing I know two things about hockey. They played on ice. Puck is black. I don't know anything about hockey not a thing. All right. So I had to go to the wreckage max Kellerman and had to look it up here. So I'm just looking online here. He's. It's all Hobie accountable reading. Okay. I don't know. I go in Deva hat to remember that. The Maple Leafs was the team. It's rondo. Okay. So reading reading right now. Right. Out of the first round the last three years. They wouldn't me. No bullet stay with me. I see that y'all only made the post four times since two thousand and four. I think I don't know. This reading reading my I don't know if I know posted. Exactly, you know what I'm saying? I mean got it right. I'm reading. You last one Stanley Cup championship in nineteen sixty seven. Okay. And still where your made the finals and I showed up to Toronto, what led sports networks was key. And if edits the Saint Louis blues, the Boston Bruins that show you how little I know of hockey proud of myself that I know that they're nowhere near. Canada. It's Boston versus Saint Louis Stanley Cup finals. Okay. But still talking hockey rather than your local basketball team. Well, lo and behold, that changed as the days personally. Why, why did that change? It's not just because of your team. It's not just because y'all in the finals, even though both have something to do with it because you got a straight up superstar, leaving the way a wild lended, and unlike anything and America that has it city and it's fan base behind them, the Toronto, Raptors have it entire country. But high. The only it. From Toronto, Vancouver's going in Memphis, that they moved the states, this is about Toronto to run to- literally has Canada and the palm of his hands because of one man, let it, and if they win the championship, and we all believe at this point devore's world trouble. Okay. Bottom line is they win the championship. And this brother stays. Leading free agency. You've got something in the making here. No other team in the states has the entire United States of America, contrary to what the Yankees and the Dallas Cowboys did discuss the nauseated fan base would have people believe. Has an entire country and the Paul but a hands, but the Toronto Raptors do. And that's where I'm going. Well, congratulations. If Kawais stays instead of coming in third behind the Maple Leafs in the Blue Jays. They'll be second on the news behind the Maple Leafs they with three chips in a row, the make believe still going to lead the news, you know how it is in Canada. But I'll say this about why he's also a great like if he's really the raptors first global kind of championship caliber star apologies Vince, Carter, and others who were great. But I mean. Mcgrady, of course, for the guy is gonna lead them to the championship Chris Bosh, but he's also an excellent Representative of Canada not to stereotype. But, like, if what's why, why is polite tough and, and a good dude like that. That's kind of like the stereotype of Canadians, right? He's so he is certain ways it fits really well, but you can't say that a guy who plays at best, the second most popular sport by law by long shot in town is more important to the fan base, then, for example, drew Brees is in New Orleans like think about how football crazy, they are down there. And think about what drew Brees means to that fan base. Tom Brady and New England or Aaron Rodgers to the Packers. I mean these guys you could even argue at this point, even though they didn't make the playoffs LeBron James in LA right now because he's he's the only thing they got. So is. The question was the most important terms of growing the fan base. Yup. Kawai is real important of growing the sport of basketball in Canada. And in terms of its place in the hierarchy in sports in Toronto, especially, but there are dudes play more popular sports, in those towns that mean more to those fans allowed to retort first of all you bring up drew Brees and Tom Brady, I can tell you by virtue of simply bringing up their name. They offset each other. That's my point. That's really a point that I'm making. I'm sort of playing numbers game from the standpoint that if you look at Jew Brees Tom Brady, they both play in the NFL. Right. We didn't even bring up Amer Raja's. Okay, you got that going on. So what I'm saying is, you have a multitude of individuals in this port, you bring up LeBron James. Yes. But we've been talking about K D, we're talking about kuwa-. We're talking about a whole bunch of guys even LeBron James that iconic basketball brandit ears. I totally understand it. But what I'm saying to you is when you look at it from that perspective, they have competition. The argument that I'm making is Kawada to really have any competition. In other words, it's you, you and basketball with Toronto. You have an opportunity to make back all relevant in an entire country. So it's not just about, oh, I'm rooting for you the respective team that you own Lama fan of yours. What I'm saying. You is that when it comes to a while Linnet, we don't get to think about just Toronto anymore to think about the entire country of Canada. Because if they wouldn't it's championship if they wouldn't championship changes a lot of things that we could we could save what we want the Blue Jays would call us back at a walk off home greatest. Great great, great moment and early nineties. I get it. But how relevant have the Toronto Blue Jays been not exactly? And of course, I just told you about the Maple Leafs. But, but if you talking with Kowa and they're winning basketball game forgetting someone see, I may be a one and done. May be bring you a championship tonight these nice couple years if he continues on this trajectory may be the best player on the team with championship aspirations, maybe who whose spicy. He's aware to know I. Okay. Perfect. All I'm saying is this. No. All I can say this couldn't y'all say, peace is something spicy. Gotta be the cornea nickname. Canadian sports, you know what I got at my bed every argument I just said about and goes right out the window. If y'all don't sit up there rave about somebody named spicy to take your franchise for years to come to be the face spicy. You got to be kidding me. Thank you for Sherman. Looks like a San Francisco giant right away. Welcome into sportscenter right now. I'm Elissa Lang. Former Boston Red Sox star. David Ortiz is out of surgery after being shot at a club in the Dominican Republic. He's in stable condition, according to his media system, but will be an intensive care for the next twenty four hours and they'll be insider, Jeff passan has more on the six our operation on RT's. Gallbladder removed, there was liver damage. He had parts of his colon removed. He ended up getting shot in the back, and it was a clean wound that went all the way through his stomach and actually struck his friend in the leg. So. A gut shot of any variety is really, really dangerous really troublesome and scary. And the fact that they had to do some, some maintenance on his organs overnight, never is a good thing, but they say he is in stable condition at this point. Thority say Ortiz was ambushed by a man who got off a motorcycle and shot him in the back at nearly point blank range, the alleged gunman was then captured and beaten by crowd of people at the bar twenty five year old Eddie Felise Garcia was treated at a hospital for head throat and leg injuries. And then he was transferred to police headquarters. Now back to I take. I try to think PK are you a hockey player or you just someone plays off? I just play on. Here we go. Go to man beers. Right. Liberate alone with PK. Day. What? Vegas names. It is native star defensive men for the Nashville predators. PK sue ban. Thank you so much for being here. Stumbled on that man break. Great to finally meet, I gotta tell you, man. I just marble the ability to skate, I go get it. I can't even get to the sport. Just the fact that talk actually skate proud because I'll be dead if I can it's even more when you think that my parents aren't even from Canada, from the Caribbean. So while it's kinda crazy. What practice makes perfect man? How are you going to start by telling hockey player about skating? I'm like fish play hockey show. And they're like, I can't believe you dribble can't. Can't the pavement. I try I try to skate last year. A lot rigs at how roller skate. I took my daughter ice skating. And it was maybe the most embarrassing moment of my life. My all to see you. You'll never see it again. I don't never see stand up real quick. If something to you. Thank you. Let's go to make this custom me. Custom made for the championship. Don't we're gonna win tonight. It's. That video you picked raptors and six you still think it's raptors and sick. Well, no, I think that first of all we're looking at the series and I think with the raptors obviously being a country, you know, behind the rafters and everybody's jumping on the bandwagon now. But as someone being from Toronto, this is the strongest we've seen our team. And just also just the energy around the team in the city, this is legit and I don't think that one player is gonna change the face of the series, even though Stephen as only hope for the Knicks next year. It's not gonna make a difference in this series right now. You said one player is not gonna make a difference in a series. But this one player coli Leonard has made a difference for the franchise. You know, my side Jiri, the head of basketball operations put together an excellent team best regular season team, but will come up short in the play. He might be the MVP JIRA been saved for years. This guy what he did. Look what he did. What he's done at Toronto. You want to know the real answer to your problems in your local basketball team. It's hire Maasai Jiri. He'll fix it. But he brings in co why at now two different thing as a raptors fan. What do you see the difference? What is broad? Okay. Well as a hockey player, I go back to the New Jersey Devils who was such a great team. When they won Stanley Cups back in the day. I think the key is for the raptors is how they play on both sides of the ball and it starts with why. I mean, they've adopted his energy his personality, and it's worked one we saw after they're all business. There's no joking around with the raptors we're for real, and I think that's the whole sign about this run is that the raptors are here Toronto was here Canada's here and we're looking for chips. Yeah. Just so. Happy. Broad James is not in the way if you were leave. Just ask Stephen I give props props. Do LeBron world class town of world class player. And you gotta give him props for the way he performed. But just like you said Kevin Durant, the best player in the world. Right. Let's see what happens. Let's see what have they wanna going through the raptors last year. The raptors had Kawai. It's a whole different animal. What about is affect on the players? We heard Stephen talk about earlier in the show, Kyle Lowry playing the best in the playoffs I've ever seen him play guys like who spicy who. Don't don't say that. They'll say. Nick. What I didn't know that. Okay. Stepping-up hit you think Kawais having it affect on the personality of the team in effecting. Those teammates onto pressure, I think, so. But it's also ability to perform. I mean thirty one in one is no joke and the way he plays. It's at opportune times, too, when they need them to step up, but you got to give credit to guys like Kat lottery and go Saul for stepping up making big plays down the stretch. Freddie van Vliet, the way he's played their whole best team coming together and it wasn't that way. Right from the start of the playoffs. They turn it on when they needed to. And that's a sign of a championship team. I guess. Swapping out here. Right. Okay. Can you talk to me about Drake because I don't believe in curses. People are talking about this Drake. Curse? It is ridiculous. Yeah. What how effective the curses or what's married to the Kurds? What do you think there's no curse this Anthony Joshua, Joshua? Got knocked out. Listen, everybody Drake is, is the best embassador for the city on a global scale. And he's a sports guy. Grew up. Loving sports plant sports, but he's a great guy every team in the NBA would wanna have Drake courtside. But we have them in Toronto. What advantage do we have? Well, we have one of the most recognizable faces on the globe support in our team. And he's been there right from day one, and people are just jealous. People are jealous about all the stuff that we get in Toronto. Right. The word jealous. Use the word jealous. I have a strong a word hypocritical. Yeah. There are folks in America, this Mike Lees of the world of Jack Nicholson to the world, and others who are fervid feigns of their respective team. New York LA at any place you go. We've seen folks NBA history chairing on their teams being far more obnoxious. I cannot believe that there are people out there who have actually complained about the way Jake was, I have no problem with how Drake his act more. Yes. K D when LeBron made the super team. Then K D said hold my beer and he joined the warriors that's what Drake to spike. Lee, Jack Nicklaus. What do you mean Drake was like, look at a demo? You think those are at the on the sidelines watch the I gotta tell he took it to a new level. I gotta tell you something right there. I'm serious one of the funniest things that I saw all year long during the playoffs. Well, what at a play is made a mistake, Drake jumped up before I did not tell you to do play. Yeah. Yeah. I got it. I got is like remember they talked to him. It's not like they don't know him. And he's not just a fan. He's an ambassador. He's connected to the raptors organization. I see. No problem with it whatsoever. Is great for basketball, great escape for basketball scraper, everybody's TV, and it's fun. And like Stephen said, he knows all the players and all players want to know him. So good. Favorite Drake song trophies. Steve day. I'll go with that baby tonight. Why don't you get? Why don't you get the business handle tonight? I used to not detect your little bit bowl with all something. Good tonight. Now, you know, maybe I got a little gift for you in the back. Some Drake's new champagne. I got something for you max and Molly. But listen, I'm starting training now. So after I can't be popping too many bottles. Okay contract. I'm ever. I'm having problems with my mic here. I worry about it. We got we got you. He. Yes.

I feel like a lot of them start popping off. But I haven't been a lot about show at parties you friends either. Minds, more of like maybe my friends aren't getting married, but maybe it's. Match. So how many friends with probably more accurately, sweet I have known for a year now. It's probably the no friends thing. The friend that we work together. Want to do this. No, John pleasure. As always the no. I really haven't been and it's weird because I the bachelor parties, I do go on. I'm like, in the wedding. I never like go on, like I don't think. I don't think. In the wedding. I didn't even really I'm not a secondary friend. Let anybody know they're only a lot about spires. Like fifteen. I feel like bachelorette parties. It's normally just the girls that are in the wedding. Maybe I've only been on two now at this point, probably been on for maybe where's the best place. You've gone the natural twice. Maybe three Nashville twice in Montreal. National right now is where like all the bachelorette parties are happening. Like you can't even go to national and enjoy it without seeing a million girls with penises on its every, it's everything the, the best part about me, though. And if you're a younger person listen to this, I recommend doing what I didn't, which is make sure your friends. No, you're the responsible person your whole life. And then even when I'm the best man is the best man in to the have you planet. It's not even like Johnson, the plane that we want to we'll have someone else's plans it. So you literally my only responsibility is the best man that give a speech, and make sure you have the rings. Maybe do they even give you that responsibility. Buck, though. That was like the ring bearers dub. I've never rings. I don't think that they like, let like five year old boys run around with rings. I thought this would bring various. Do they walk them down the aisle, but they're not like bringing them to the having my pocket? I don't know. I thought that's what they did never done that. I thought that's what best man. Best man did. I don't know. I've only been bridesmaid one time. PAT actually the other day like randomly out of nowhere. It was Casey. I hope that this isn't an offensive thing to say, but you look like you've planned a lot of bachelorette parties, and I was like, well, I don't know how I'm gonna take that. But I definitely never played a bachelorette party, because I think people know not that I'm responsible. It's like, oh, she lives in New York or when I was in Boston. She lives far away. She's never gonna plan this and I'm totally okay with that. Because I hate planning things stupid. It's about far bachelorette parties. You guys have to do the lingerie shower planned reservoirs, Cisco and get drunk, I was the ones I've been on. I would rather deal with that. I don't feel like I've gone to some are, I've only been to one of them where they had to have decorations in every single room and every room had to have its own theme for decorations at Airbnb. Why the fuck are we doing this cruiser? It wasn't great girls. Cut Jim Thome I I'm with you. I would way rather be not in the wedding or on the I've been grooms lady two times, which I might totally end on then be a bridesmaid ever again. Unless my sister I've had friends like that where. Just like luck if there is a cut point, cut me. I am certainly not one of them was gonna be like, oh, I thought, we were better friends, if I don't have to be in the party that you feel like I'm gonna pour piece of your life. Sure, I'd like to be there on your special day. If if you take a forced thing I'm out. It's I had when I my ex girlfriend we were talking about marriage one day not like us getting married, but we're just talking about weddings the idea of it. Yeah. And sham. And she was like eventually joking when she said it, but she's like you better like I'm gonna have like thirteen bridesmaids. You better villa mattress team. You better fucking get some milk cousins quick because I don't know. I don't have the numbers other dean the thing he was twelve or thirteen thousand I can I maybe max out of the six, there's no way that she had thirteen close friends, unless you is, in a sorority, which that case, then there was also believe she wasn't like a big sorority person. But it was like. I did meet a lot of friends. I don't think she ever met any of mine, but they see you guys were talking about who's going to be your weddings. You just weren't that serious. No, it wasn't like a real. Okay. Let's plan our wedding. It was just like some wedding had come up in conversation. And it was like, how many would you have it was, it was very, very casual? There was nothing remotely serious about it. But right now at Kevin be your best man. Good question. I would be so here for that speech. He definitely be. He would be in the conversation. Yeah. I mean I have like some childhood friends that probably like my brother, but he would certainly be he'd be weighed if he didn't give the best man speech. I probably do one, the Purcell dinner or something like that, just, you know, I've already done one if he gets married again. It's you. The second one. Fights will probably be the guy that like doesn't want to bring up anything like accidentally says something like, oh, the second time around and it makes everybody, I'm I crush. I could get heartfelt. So I do you really. Yeah, I had I had people weep it in the streets. I last shot like weeping from laughing or weeping crying, though, crime your that cinnamon auto. Oh, good. So good. They're not even like emotions, I have is I know. As a sociopath, I have a hard time making anybody like this before rogue. I know how to act like a human. I to human really well, you're a sociopath. I know what people will want. I don't feel this, but I know this is going to press buttons for you, actually, I think that is one of the definitions of being socio is like you fake emotions because you people will react in this shit about that. Let's sad. It is a little not really doesn't not, not for me. But I can see how you think that. Yeah, I personally am sad for you that you don't feel emotion. But then again, I'm also jealous of you that you don't feel emotion because it'd be really nice. Sometimes if I just didn't give a shit about things. No, you should strive for where where's Kevin's Basha party right now which? Virginia. Are they doing like a house thing? Yeah. Do you like those better? Yeah. I I'm not like I don't want to go to the club. I don't wanna go. I don't wanna make. I like I just get fucked up to a male strip club. No. I don't know if you've ever been forced there. I had to go to one on the first ever bachelorette party, I was invite on. It is not a fun experience. I don't know. I think I'd like it because it's it's there they don't get naked right there. More. Dick's around Mike wipe in like a Speedo though. And I'm not like that. But look like Channing Tatum, now who's chaining Tatum, and magic Mike different. These guys rue experience in that. It's like get hotter than that. It's like they're more. I've said before come strip clubs, I'm not there to get horny. I'm there for a show have the girl come out who's going to do something wild like with ping pong balls. Wrestle or something. That's more entertaining than like eating fire and stuff. I actually I I'm with you. I'd much rather. I I'd rather go to a ship club were girls or dancing because of the show aspect of it than ever go. Look at a dude initial club. I don't care. I don't care for dick, but I, I care for for performance Chippendales. What did you do that? Really? My only experience Chippendales is the Chris Farley skit that looked good. That was entertaining guy Vinny doing a strip club now. No, he did. He did they chip. And Dan, didn't he it completely naked shower? I believe took a shower onstage. Yes. I by didn't tell me about. I think I saw TMZ tweet that you did just shower. See one of the things this is both a nursing that a strip club. We're like, want the woman, hygienic shower. Just want to see your take a shower shampoo. Let's, let's fetish you have no functional over, I've never seen another person shower. I'd be interested to see you haven't shower the group, I've never observed showering, and I'm like, let's see. Oh, you shall with. No one's looking. You get in the feet. But how will you get in the crevasses was going on? All I'm picturing as you like it like a peeping Tom like watching people shower now and it's got can't even be that though. Because then they know people are watching them. I need like a secret Cam shower. I think you can be a peeping Tom without people knowing of the show, I guess, if he'd be taught. Yes. Yeah. Like you're like a Stocker from that Netflix show, you instead of watching the girl mass. Right. You're watching your shower. Don't think you could be honest. No idea curiosity around the shower more Hornets around the masturbating. I think that's probably a very fair. Very fair thing to do, but the Hornets part is the reason I don't like strip clubs on either side because you can go there for entertainment, but, you know that there are people there that are like people who wear sweatpants, feels better, with dick, get some Kevin sediment, before said that seriously about himself. I think so one of his mouth, I feel like you said it though, maybe he was talking about a friend. I don't know for sure allegedly Kevin Clancy may have said. Yeah, but like I, I go I go to a strip club like dress. Nice. So I can have a shipper be like it was pretty hot. He probably has a lot of money. I'm just gonna gonna spend all my time around him. No, I didn't want that at least an we're like I don't you don't wanna be I don't wanna be attention. No, I'd rather just sit. And so why do you dress nice this so they can look for five? Oh, I hope that guy asked me for dance. And then I don't he just wanted to make them feel badly about themselves. I just wanted them to be like, like, I'm like, nagging them like that's a well put together guy over there like, but he's bet he'd be like, give a dancing to come over and they shake it. Thank you. What do you think about going to them with your girlfriend? I did it. Once actually wasn't girlfriend. Oh my girlfriend was there. But it didn't happen to her. It was. Girl, got was she came over. There was we were we're at the table and the check was like doing lap dances. And she was sitting on her lap and like the churches took her shirt off. They by friends. And I guess get can't do that. Does it as problematic? Immigration canada. Probably. Ten years ago. Now, it's kind of bullshit because that if that happened the other way around, like if your friend like popped off, her like thong or something, big problem, bro. Big problem. I have no problem going to strip clubs with my boyfriend or my guy, friends as I've gotten older, though, like I'm totally feeling like I'm turning just like an old person be like, I feel sad being around some of these women. So I don't know what that means. Because in early early twenties. I'd go into them all the time, but PSA never go to a male strip club. They are not great because the women there that are actually warning for those guys. It's a bad scene. Usually find pretty hot girls at app female ship clubs. Fairly cool. Girl who go, but if you're in a club is by girl, who I'm telling you, it's tough. It's the guy version of guys who genuinely go to strip clubs. It is. And they're just like standing there at their fanny packs, and all their money. And it's just a tough bags, rob shit females like that. I've been to one ever, and it was a really CD one in Houston, Texas. And I'll never go back. I'd probably just go, where you finally is there is there mills New York is definitely not want in Boston. I think they're like we want to New York. But, like, there's like everybody knows the names of all the regular shows don't. It's not a good show because even if it was a good performance, at least talk about it, like, oh blank, they like it's because they're creepy, the big shows are like the ones in Vegas like the one Vinnie did or it's an actual entertainment, not just a bunch of dudes flapping their shit around. I'm out on that. I haven't heard of anything. I don't know any girls that were like, yeah. I went we went to the male strip club down on twenty th street or something like that. So there was, there's a former employee Barschel sports dot com. That was a big fan of male strip clubs. There's a former employee of this company that we worked for that was a huge fan of male strip clubs and she was very vocal about it. Oh, yeah. She loved him. She, yes, she. She, like she and Liz JSP and Liz actually gotten. Got into like an argument at one of my first days of work Barsial, about mill strip clubs being sexy or not. It was very bizarre shoot big fan. So her raptors just won the championship. Yeah. Good for her strip clubs in the raptors the best of c c k is presented by post mates. But we also have a great deal for you. John. Do you like listening to anything other than your own podcast? No. Well you do now because of a failure. Did you? I've actually give me a heads up. The ad. No. I mean, this is a new deal. It's a new agreed. Audible, it's from Amazon is I'm really listening to books now. This is an audio. Yeah. There you go. So I'm one of those people that I would rather listen to talking, sometimes I think you and I've talked about this, like, if I'm on a long drive, I'd almost rather listen to people having conversations and music because I can zone out music ever non Londres, but she listen audio. You just you. A well known thing it's dead. Silence. In the car with you are in. Are not only a sociopath psychopath in maybe a serial killer you like just dead. Silence. Not anymore, John.

That's a soccer book, okay? How merely was formed, very interesting. Your big soccer guy right now. My mom interested in the history of it was one thousand nine hundred ninety people know that people think it's not young really old since nine hundred ninety two it started. And it is now on TV in one hundred thirty five out of one hundred forty five countries, only one forty five recognized by the UN one forty five on every Saturday, fourteen point five billion dollars. That's insane. It is. Some forget how many millions of people watch it, but it's crazy. It's like it's a very young league and it is dominating the world and they still all their ideas manifesto. That's a factor. That's your you know, like, like, like, that's what they do. Like night football Monday night football. The do they have, like some one of the owners went to, I think it was arsenal owner, it's very shady, how everything was bought like it was like owned by like the guys on the butcher shop like own teams. It was just like local stuff. And then rich dudes it started buying up all shares quietly and like oh, guess what we own this team now. Shady shit. And they're like the they whisper bathrooms in the stadiums. They weren't bathrooms. There's PD troughs. I was out back what? Okay. Well, I wasn't an idea from the NFL. It was inspired by. It was like he went to a Miami Dolphins game. And he was like berry surprise you like the bathrooms and here. What are the girls do the females do? Didn't go to soccer games leading females in York. Due to progressive of them. Well, if you want to listen to that book, that's like the happiest I've seen you in a while talking about that book. So now you need to get the audio book, too. To you need. I, I haven't seen him that happy all week just talking about bathrooms and sucker. Bizarre scene inaudible dot com slash KFC radio. The best of c k this week. It was a very strange week. We had the David Ortiz news popping up earlier, we had the Bruins blue Stanley Cup finals. We're going to preview a little bit of that. And then, of course fights you coming in after getting back from Boston was a, a tough visual, but you're on the up and up now. Ish ish up and up. Speaking of soccer, we do a whole outrage country of Canada is so soft to talk about the US women's soccer team beating Thailand thirteen zero and how they should score every single goal and celebrate them. And then I tell maybe potentially one of those problematic stories of all time told on national radio that spun completely out of my control. And it's, it's an unfair witch hunt at this point. But we get into all of that, and more on C K fights is here Casey's here. Kevin Izzo game six Bruins blues. I don't know how you did it fights. I mean for me. So I I was coming back from Boston. And I was I was on the train. And then I saw like some random Instagram account was, like David Ortiz got shot. It was like I don't pull you back, like I my immediate reaction was denial, I'll wait until, like something else happens. But still in the back of my head. I'm like fuck like this something must have happened to throw something like that out there. So I get out about Penn station. Again, the taxi cab line and Nate text music. Do you want me to throw something on the blog? Like where are you? Blah, blah, blah. And I was like it's just like an Instagram post, like unless we have something a little bit more concrete. I'm not I'm not just jumping on, like a random internet rumor that David Ortiz got shot like when you a little bit more to go on with than that. I think we all do. Yeah, we'll get hung over in bed and once on Saturday morning as was like, oh, shit. That's my guy. Yeah. Like not now you went off one bus. That was all. I mean, it was a we're talking about an Instagram. Post them somebody random in the Dominican Republic versus like a writer for the Boston. Right. I forgot it was like suppo. Is that official? Yeah. But they're feels like there's things on Twitter or social media every once in a while. It's like somebody died like they'll even be Google headlines. And it's just completely fake. But this one this is not. I mean, if, if you're talking, something serious, like that with David Ortiz is probably the most important non family member. My entire life, I need a little bit more concrete evidence, than just some random Instagram post. So it was denial mode. And then more and more people starting to pick it up. There was like some news outlet that has almost a million followers on on Twitter. That's based on Dominican Republic star. Reporting. It so it was like, all right. I'm still in denial mode. I don't think that this actually happened, but I will acknowledge it on the blog because we have like a credible source, I guess, in the Dominican that saying that this happened. So I'm in the back of a fucking taxi cab writing a blog on my laptop the mobile hotspot, and throw it up there. I think the first sentence I rose. I don't even know what to say. I don't even know what to say like a this the true and I don't know what to say or this is false. And I don't I don't know what to say because we can't confirm if it's real. So whatever we put it out there and then fights is on the livestream for Bruins blues in game six with their entire season on the line and said elimination game for the Boston Bruins. When did you find out about this, we were treated like kids, like little kids at first, where it was because there are three of us on screen, and there were I'm trying to think like how like when what situation you would treat kids like this? I guess, when like grandmas dead or something like that. But like everyone around us was whispering. And it was like I didn't want to he didn't want us to know. Right. So it was that was in the second period. I think, and it was like, I think Chuck came over and whispered, something in Dane, is year. And Dana had a few whispers to Hank. I believe, and there was a little going out the PNT grew. And I could tell something was happening and I was like what was going on and period, the period, ended and I was just talking about. And I think PF teach all may know there's there are reports that poppy was shot. And it almost like you were since I wasn't researching I was not what I was like not. That's not true. So like Takata. It's kind of Pooh. Pooh, it right away made it easier to put out a mind. And then it was like, look. Look, we got almost like what happened with hobby, probably when he went into the hospital like, okay, we gotta deal with this situation. And then that once we solve that we can solve this. And that's kind of how it was with the Bruins I was like, okay, I got to deal with this. I got twenty minutes of this, and then I can get on that we're going to stop the bleeding here, and then we'll get over there and work on that one. They kind of felt like Twitter did that as a whole for the most part and less. Like like you obviously, who just covers baseball and covers Red Sox. But the all the big time outlets really didn't feel like they were jumping on the poppy story until the Bruins gave us over. We had one TV on ESPN because Dan was watching cubs cardinals and even even that ESPN TV because that ended probably I dunno sometime in early third period before third started. And even then I went to sports and after the game ended, and even then it wasn't like no takes over the screen kind of deal. It was some divine for that. So I'm sure they might addressed it. But then once that game ended than it went to, like you'll full screen reports they've already shot kind of deal. I feel like it is one of those things where even like the big. Outlets that have to run that stuff. They're, they're not going to try to be the first one to run that because it is David Ortiz. And he got shot. It's not like it's just some random guy like, oh, maybe this happened. Like you put out that David Ortiz, get shot in the Dominican Republic and it ends up being false. Even Ortiz is like I mean he's larger than life. He's probably one of the most important figures in American sports history. Yeah, you put it perfectly about shooting him in the DR is like trying to shoot. God in heaven. Yeah, it was even watching the video, we, we were talking about it after the game, we're like blog the video and the facts of. Of the matter, are, it's, it's news at viral, it's everything, so we kind of has to be, but it also is weird to post because like you said, it's family like I said that in about two or I was like, if feels like I'm putting up a video like my dad and my brothers shot. But like they luckily it was a surveillance video. It wasn't over the top. There's no sound. It's not graphic. There's no blood, the reason why I didn't post. It was because at the time that I tweeted like I saw the video, this definitely wasn't a robbery. This was a hit. I don't feel comfortable in the video, I said that when we didn't know his condition, I was like I'm not posting cheeses. They murder video, there's not doing that. Like I refuse to get Twitter engagement from a fucking murder video of like the most beloved person in fucking Red Sox history. But now it's like the the, the last update that just came out. What was it Marley Rivera from ESPN? I think it was. Yeah. So she just tweeted David Ortiz update from Enrica row Haas, who just arrived in the DR. Red Sox plan is about to land in the Dominican Republic medical. Authorities have authorized his transfer once the plane is ready for transport, quote, his condition is stable enough to travel for able Gonzales, that's the doctor. That's that's with him. That's crazy. That is like he's fine already. She's ready to go. It's like I mean shot it you shot David Ortiz in the Dominican Republic. Like the idea that video of his shooter was so goddamn funny. Sorry, that was used in opinion. Just catchable kicks, CLYDE. That was the shooter. I think that was the guy who is driving the motorcycle. I think they came in on a motorcycle. That was the shoot. I know the shooter. I mean, they got both of them. But the dude that was getting fucking, bottled, and like kicked in the head now is the motorcycle guy. Okay. Yeah. Well, not one was one of them, coli tweeted it. And I was with him to the fact that, that guy could stand up on his own. It was a little bit upset me. Yeah. Like that guy should not have been able to stand up. I mean, there's no chance he was the shooter or not. Like that's just crazy to me that you would. I mean it doesn't understand. It doesn't make any sense to me. Why you would shoot anybody. That's not a crazy. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I mean, in that kind of situation just like walk into a bar, but in that situation, who he is knowing that, you're, you're fucked, you are, that guy is so fun. I mean you shot him in you. They probably took him to a hospital that he built Kohli said, if they were teased and build it and Pedro. Did they fucking built up that whole country over there like all the children's hospitals over there? That's why like the David Ortiz. Children's fund. Like that's all it's kids in America. And it's also the kids in the Dominican Republic. It's like he's a God over there for a reason it's not just because he hits baseball is because he fucking helps people over there. Like he is built hospitals Pedro, and they built churches over there, so to just into shoot them in the back you fucking pussy, coward, coward. Like why did you shoot him in the head? I mean I'm not advocating for it. But if you're trying to kill the guy in the head that was the take three more steps again. I'm glad you didn't poorly planned just a terrible killer, as bad a person as he is a killer poorly planned, but thank God that they're so fucking stupid. Both of them. Got caught obviously there's rumors of motive and whatever else but we don't need to get into that. We're not dealing in rumors. We're dealing in fact said talent easing it's going to be until or is there ever going to be a situation where we know the motive. Because I, I don't know the difference. But how long do you think? I don't know because I don't know how the Dominican Republic like police over. That's my America where I mean, even motives can be hidden here too. But, like who knows what's going on. And how corrupt it is like, is there a way that, that could be like shoved under the rug? For sure for sure. And I think this is a bad question. I've never been in the DR but is are they as corrupt? The police forces like Mexico is probably not as it's definitely not. It's out America. No. And I mean. But I don't get it all that. Right here. Fling, Pandora's box over to get into that. But I just I didn't know if the how corrupt it actually is like on paper, but obviously updates keep coming in, so we will. Well, you know, relay any updates that we get it was so lucky. How like how quick everything happened because that was actually the best part of focusing on the Bruins, like I never really had time to be worried because by the time the Bruins, ended it was, like he's stable. Yeah. It was it was it was like I like it was only twenty minutes or half hour of real nerves. Yeah. There were conflicting reports though, I yeah. So until he gets on that damn plane. The, the Red Sox have sent. Oh, like in, like a plane to the Dominican Republic to bring them back to Boston until he gets on that plane then because that's you have to be stable enough to get on the plane. So that's, that's kind of what I'm looking forward to is. Can we get him on the plane and get him to a medical facility in Boston? They have the best hospitals in the world. So that's kind of like the check, that's a box that I'm looking to check get his ass on the plane, get them back to Boston. Get him to one of the best hospitals at they're out in the world. I wonder is it was his family. I guess, again, I was behind on reports. But I feel like as soon as I started talking to his family. They were just like no, he's good almost like having fun with it pops. Get around for a long time. Guys war was he good right away. I don't know. I mean like if you're in the fucking ICU you're not good, right? Like who the fuck is just, like, yuck. Ended up in the ICU. No, it's like him laughing and better. I like all his mother fuckers outside and low. Yeah. Cheered when I heard ICU is it was, like he's a waken ICU. Is he not like when you're an ICU that's usually a pretty bad sign? I would guess. Sure. But he was conscious when he went into. I kept seeing that quote, which was like heartbreaking, where he's going to be dime. A good man. Yeah. That's that was looking. I was walking home from the office CNN. That's tough to say. Yeah. But. But I mean he's probably under when he's in the ICU because for sure, I mean, they had to they said like his organs weren't damaged, but then they took out his fucking colon and his liver like pieces of it. They had to work around some shit. And obviously, if you get shot in the abdomen there's going to be a decent amount of bleeding from Reservoir Dogs. I learned a lot of blood, a lot of pain. Oh, yeah. That dangerous. But not that dangerous. That's what it's up, unless you just aren't taking care of, and then you just bleed out slowly. Yeah, yeah. So, you know, thank God, that there was that one dude that stuck around. I mean like if someone is this guy, right jewelry? Yes. Yes. So I mean, if you're at a bar, somebody pulls out a gun and shoot, somebody everyone is running in the opposite direction. Like not many people in this isn't a call out anyone in particular, but human human reaction would be get the fuck out of there versus. I'm going to stay here and make sure that my guy doesn't bleed out on the. Floor and like let's get him to a hospital. Everyone's reaction is to flee. This guy was like fucked at David Ortiz, like get him in the car game the hospital. I mean who knows what would have happened if he didn't rack that way. But yeah, the do the shot. I'm just fucking ran away after anyway. So it's like that, that was a sad part of the video to me watching it. And again, I, I watched it through the lens of he's okay. Yeah. Different one than you. Because by the time I saw everything was okay or stable, at least bullet the most like sad, upsetting to me is like it was the video so perfectly David Ortiz, where he's not in a special section he doesn't have security, he's just like not at the bar hosted up at the bar with his people, and he's just like I have a couple of drinks Sunday afternoons on the evening, whatever it was Sunday night, and, like doesn't have anyone, I imagine we'll change now when he goes back to the public. But that's we is just like a guy who just loves people, and loves hanging out with people love, making people happy and it was like he was probably mid joke at that bar. Mid fucking having a good time. I ask some of my friends in tex-. This today because obviously I follow so many people from Boston. So it's like I'm seeing through the Boston lens on my Twitter timeline for the most part. But is there anybody, and you guys are obviously going to be by a sue because you're from Boston, but I feel like he's so supersedes just people from this area loving him like just across the board. It doesn't matter who you root for like you David Ortiz. There's anyone in the world who decisive Ortiz. Because like when you see that on, on, just like the reaction of people, you know, you're seeing like, guys were tweeting at you like Yankees fans like from the other side of the rivalry, like wishing him. Well, and I'm obviously when she was such a weird thing. Yeah. Okay. From Yankee fan, tell the humans okay say, like zoom org if he's sports while we shut the fuck them book. I'm a Yankee guide. I'm hoping he's okay too. Yeah. Dude, I hope Geeta die either graduations, just fucking hero, but that it was weird to see those things last night. It's like, well you know I got to fucking. Hey Boston, but I love poppy hope. He's okay. It's like he's a human. Like I hope all humans are. Okay. That's usually how that works or not all of them. But all the good ones. I don't like bad human. It is a guy who shot him. I hope that guy is not okay at all coli had the same thing was there a chance. He might try to claim this, like, what are you talking about claiming? I will probably is our guy we claim poppy. But what I like we're the only people could be upset about this. We're going to be rooting for him to be. You said someone tweeted, they call it and again, I hate to even single at stuff. I hate them. I'm I'm still manages did that because I hate being like someone person said on Twitter fuck out, one person who gives a shit, so it wasn't like the larger sentiment across the internet. But, but he's obviously, so I kinda in Boston, but even just like with the marathon Seth when he says, like this is our fucking city like I was not in Boston at that point. But that like every time I think David Ortiz, that's what I think. And so just sports fans across the country across the world. Obviously we're reacting to it, but it was so weird how just slowly started coming out because of the Stanley Cup and not because the Stanley Cup was more important, but because Twitter was just taken over with what was going on in that game. And then all of a sudden it's like wait David Ortiz got shot. It is one of those things to where it is just like since it say doing that. They're real country. I believe. Everyone's just like I don't know what to do. Like could it be also? Have you ever been to make him before? I don't know. You get off the plane and there's people like fucking like machine guns just standing there like a runway. Yeah. They're here to do. They were I was going into fucking the Bruins game like lots of Swansea. When machine guns. Yeah, that's American issue. I think it was everywhere it was wild. It's like do just to like, not, as but whatever they are air fifteen. That's right. It's a little excessive row game. I feel like what is up? It's Tuesday here on C C K heaven is doing the run down right now. They have to do it at one so he'll be here a little bit. But we've got Jared and Coley in the building coli. I know that you were just on the act. But I figured who better than the basketball guy to talk about the basketball game on. Maybe Jack Jack Mack, I just I saw the dig soccer quote. And I was hoping that it was a dick sucker moment where he just got own on a good fifteen minutes radio. And what was his take clay wasn't a top fifty NBA player patently false? The fifth best player on the warriors for this run. What did what is he talking about? What are his cracks begin to niece said he wasn't a good defender can't rebel, which is fair. Click at trouble. But yeah, it was a lot of it was weird. I clay may have like punch them in the face. At some point in time and just live all find maybe I don't get it. I don't know what happened. I mean Jack knows pretty much everything about college football as an encyclopedia that may be one of the worst basketball takes ever. He just so hat, like casually. Said it when we walk into radio that he was the most overrated NBA player of all time and time and he was like name one nice and Kobe. And he had no argument for that. He I feel like he's just going to run with that take. Oh, no. He's he's fully trapped himself. No, we're making them blog the top fifty and he said, like Rudy Gobert. It was it was a tough scene. That's tough. I'm looking forward that blog. So I know you've probably talked all about the game. I like Kevin and I have very opposite takes on the Drake reaction to the Katie thing. And obviously with him being a Knicks fan. He's having a tough day right now. It's no and owns thinking about the Knicks fans who really lost. Kevin Durant Torres achilles office bone. I mean just shredded at you. So yesterday we spent a whole bunch of time with me. Jared and fights talking about Katie coming back, you and I talked about it off air to that, if this is obviously before before game five, obviously now we know what happened after game now it's after game five, and it was a tough scene for Kevin Durant. But yesterday, it was like if he is healthy enough to play. And he knows that he can help the team, ten out of ten you would come back. I stand by that when he hurt last night when he went down. What was your first thought, but fucking sucked just awful sucks who? So I watch that. I don't like watching injury videos at all. I'm not a big injury. Video fan, especially if like there's like bone coming out of the body that one, I watched so many times because you could physically see it, though. So Chris tops like that. Don't bother me as much as like that guy's legs in a different direction. Late, like Lattimore is the Carolina running back like that one I always got me Nick chubs was gross, Nick house is really bad like football ones. Like when someone follow seismic, obviously is like the number one that one that's like the one that everybody points to do you ever see the blindside? Oh, the Sandra Bullock movies. So I wasn't south. I was in the blind side, cooling, I was in college when that movie came out and my girlfriend at the time it was like, oh, Sandra Bullock movie this sports on it. Let's go see it. So he did. And they open with the FIS men play just like laugh out loud, because they show it in parts, like bits and pieces to show how important the blindside is. And it's like all, like forty year old women who've never seen this play in the theater, and I'm just like tackling laughing. The FOX wrong with the is like just watch. And then everyone's like, oh, the fuck it's what is. It is this movie. I have no idea. What's coming up? Lou. That's knuckle out, very cruel, directing I loved it that one is that the one, I think most people probably point to that. But in general injuries, knock great. But that were, yeah. Just not, not graveyard fuck. Yeah. You like watching injuries thought. No. That's bad. The thing is he was not paying attention to what's injuries is that you want to see that. I mean I admittedly was watching the Red Sox last night or that go bad and I did see the video of the Katie injury. I. I. I don't I'm not squeamish. This was not a squeamish one. I feel like a lot of people were like, oh, look away Kim. I mean it it doesn't look good. In fact, bad. But however, it wasn't like a look away. Squeamish nursery now which is why I was able to watch it. And it was actually going gonna play game six. Have they listed about giving to lay suspended Hernandez yet? Like who knows who knows? I mean, there's so many different ways. We could go with this start this game because I love that there's going to be a game six. I do not want basketball to end. I think that there's absolutely going to be a game seven. There's no way the warriors lose game six, but Kevin Durant win before the game when they were doing like the whole pre-game stuff with the beetle show, which do you like that show? I care about what it's called countdown or something jump or something else out, the jump Rachel Nichols. I'm so I love the. TNT. Pre-game goldstar. Right. Socially, fair to compare anyone to them. But well, yeah, but I'm going to anyway 'cause I 'cause I just hate you. So I'm going to I, I was so sure that Katie was going to have such a huge game and that that was going to be a storyline. And the whole three to one thing was going to be raised. And now it's okay. Can they actually beat the raptors without him foreshore? What are your thoughts? They really just have to win game six because game seven who knows what the fuck is going to happen like it, and it's going to be hard enough, because wild Katie didn't have like a thirty point like dominant performance. They don't win without those eleven have eleven eleven or twelve maybe it was eleven and twelve minutes twelve minutes, they don't win without that, like three three from three like they're gonna have to replace those eleven points which are going to be hard because their bench right now stinks playing. You just have to this is the most obvious. Agent of all time you have to take him into consideration when he's on the court even if he doesn't have the ball. Right. Right. That's, that's all the people who are arguing the warriors were better without him would argue the opposite. And I think that's been proven pretty false through five games in this. I would say, so I would say so they're eight and nine in the finals without him throughout this whole five year stretch night at eight and nine and one with him leg as close the best player in the league that I hate the arguments, where it's an I, I don't know who is arguing with the Yankees. But it was maybe it was you me, you were saying something about how like you can make the argument that they're better without their house may know. You can't make that argument in basketball. No. Sure. Sure. Cannot make that argument or good players your best players. And if k d would have been. In the Celtics for definitely better without kyri show, aren't they definitely not numbers point to that. They were not the winning percentage, right? When they played the scrubs of the league when they sat him intentionally you play Coley. Yeah. No, there you play some scrub sometimes. And when you beat them, it's not really that surprising Kyrie's stinks. Sure doesn't. He's bad basketball, China. And so why do you think it is you and Jack max do a basketball show? Kyrie Irving is bad at basketball. I'm sorry. What was your question? How can you say, Kyrie Irving? I don't even want we can't even get into this. But I do not question like game. Foxing about with, with Cleveland. Just one one good games. We really only had one shot and you really think about it. That is shoot. He had one good shot. I can see the guy you do a solo podcast with, like this is the guy you want to talk about basketball. He hates everyone who's not on the Suns. Take that in consideration. He spent a lotta time defending kyri, if kyri came to the sons Jared's tune would change. I would certainly find some statistics support my case. However, now, I'm sort of. I'm in a bad spot now because Katie was kind of my offseason plan after we got the number fucking six six pick. Yeah. Yeah. Which Kevin's going to come in here and go crazy from the Knicks angle too. But there are a lot of talk last night. Like I don't remember who was from ESPN but somebody was saying that it should not affect his deal in this off season at all. Well, I don't think it will either. But it does suck for any team that was like, oh, I want Katie. Does he shredded his achilles? I don't know. We don't know the severity of it yet. Right. We saw this. We saw. But they haven't come out and said like this is their MRI today. And it's who knows what time in theory. It could have been a muscle. Bassim in theory. I've had muscle spasms that look like that usually have to get carried off the court or wherever you had your spasm. I mean, when I play basketball I always got carried off it. She says Christ. Your. Crumbled into a ball on the ground. I don't know saying, like I was always like the best players, they would literally put me on their shoulders and carry me off. That's LeBron always leaves the court right chariot in town team basketball. Flavor. Flavor UCLA. You guys went after college names. Yeah. Town team. Yeah. We were colleges. That's absurd. I thought it was too. That sets learned colleges was town townie basketball. Yeah. You're all fucking shutout Saugus. That that's such a Saugus thing to do. It's funny and I was gonna say what your little league teams named after like minor league rosters you played for the Yankee did play for the Yankees, which is we've talked about that a lot people. Keep tweeting me that picture all the time, like exposed, expose. That's like dude. I that picture is on the internet because I put it there Parkway literally got the Yankees fuck out of the league. But it felt it was cruel and unusual to put children on that team, which is whatever. I mean it builds the Boston area definitely is built character and cruel and unusual thing to do Casey. I saw you blog about Drake. We're not action. We're not seeing that because Kevin really wants to talk about it. This is the thing. I mean we can get Kevin's take. Now, the fact that the rundown is at one today. And I was like can I please ask day for it to not be at one, because Kevin was like, I really don't wanna talk. I don't I really want to be there for the Katie talk and the Drake stuff and everything else. It's like, well, unfortunately day Portnoy runs this company when the rundown this happening, I would say fortunately, fearless leader is right. Fortunately, I'm saying in this situation. There's no like there's nothing Kevin Clancy could say that he would be starting this radio show today. Nothing for sure, so no, we're definitely gonna talk about that. Because I this NBA finals, I did not think going into this series. I really wanted the bucks to win. I wanted to see you on us in the finals, and I was convinced that I was going to hate this, that the warriors were gonna maybe win in five that it wasn't gonna be as much fun to watch. I love everything about this final minus the fact that I really wanted to see Katie finished out. Obviously, I would prefer everyone were healthy one hundred percents. Isn't that what we don't know that for sure? Pretty much every dollar to my name on that neither of you, doctors. We're dealing with facts here. You what are you talking? I'm just I I'm not saying he's last night. I watched the internet fact. Yeah. I mean, that's I mean, what's the difference? What, what, what difference, does it make what screen, I watch it on? Well because after the game they were having to like or not even after Dave during the game. They were like having like escort him out. Everyone was like they're trying like literally crying day. Definitely had a bad day Myers. That press conference was so emotional. There's no chance Katie is like I mean, do you like shit? We're not gonna win this ring now. Well, I think they can think I well, but they can't do it like would man Tyler we're looking at, like, where these points gonna come from because even if looney doesn't play like they have to replace fifteen points to win by one and it's like really gonna hope Quinn, cook steps up, like really gonna hope, like maybe bogey repeats what he did, like there's it's tough like you need to hope clay and stuff. Go off for sixty and then you have to cobble together forty points from the rest of that roster. Denise freak out after the game. Yeah. Oh, yeah, great. He say he's got FOX at FOX. Can we get that? Can we pull that up saw it's great fuck him? Fuck them. It's I again basketball is so good with that kind of stuff like you don't normally get this type of, like petty reaction from any think. Well, no, but I mean it's great. But I'm saying people are mad on either side of things. Big mad. Big mad big mud the raptors fans cheering last night, I fucking hate that. I don't I wild by sports does not to that degree though. You're Ian injury. Imagine if like no. Have I ever seen a player? Get seriously hurt in the crowd started cheering and the guy same cheering after he got back up. We'll yeah. Of course. And they did that as well. I think both cheers cheers coal which eater that did you see the video of drastic park. Yeah, it's insane. Like they go for sure. Start sharing. And then they realize they're assholes, and then once they realize like he's out they start sharing again. That's crazy. I don't disagree, but I mean if in two thousand and four like a-rod every this happens baseball every game when a pitcher intentionally drill someone the crowd that they can kill person. Did he die neither Durant? So seriously injured. If you're for sure, you get serious baseball that critical at baseball like you can just get absolutely pegged with outside our different like way, more dangerous. I agree. If you throw a fastball at a guy's head in doesn't hit him, and he falls down the crowds probably going to cheer that, if he actually gets clocked in the head. No. Yes. Always everyone's like ooh. No, it's completely different someone actually gets hit in the head. No one two thousand four Pedro. Put one of a Rod's head Fenway doesn't erupt. I don't think so. I think there's definitely more UIs them, like a rubbing into cheers guy getting hit in the head, especially if you like hits the ground, like if it's, it's different like, like Michael us got hit in the fucking forehead this year, and you just ate it and went to I if that's a rod, if he gets hit in the fucking in between the eyes and he just takes first base like there's probably some cheers for. But if there's if there's if there's evidently in injury. I think it'd be the same thing. It'd be like a chair, and then I fucked back. I might be dead. Maybe I don't know. I think something like ooh. Ooh. Ooh, I don't disagree. I think there was some UIs last night. But the thing is that I definitely think there'd be way more. Choose the guy that was standing on the court that stood up and like waving him out. That's the problem is that's where everybody's eyes went to because in real time. That's what I saw I and then I started processing. Okay. So everybody around this guy is cheering for cable, get hurt or because he got hurt. And I understand like the natural fan reaction in the back of your brain is like, okay if Kevin Durant. He's not exactly. Kevin Durant is not playing for the rest of the series, we're probably going to win this series, which I don't even know is true even now that they've well, I'm saying in that one moment. Yeah. Is going into game five? It was just the whole story was if the warriors can win this game, and Katie is healthy. They're going to win the series. No way. So in that moment I can understand sign of relief in the back of your head, like, okay he's going to be able to play but to cheer and I understand it's like we're all getting up in arms because it's Canada and everybody's like candidate. Nice. I think it's just so fucking classless. I always I always have always will. It doesn't matter who it is. Or what team it's also like a guy in like the third row or third deck didn't see his achilles pop clearly, like guy on the court. Did for sure it? But it's like I heard you saw a guy like maybe turn his ankle like, if he'd like like when Jalen, like smashes out on the ground, we felt from the rim and was like seizing up like no one's going to cheer. That that's probably more closer to a guy getting a fastball like off the head and like never being able to talk again, correct. But imagine cheering blood Bryce flory. Right. That's what I'm in wild, but it's like if he just twisted his ankle, it's like all right. Well, he's gonna come back hobbled. I'll go home. Everyone there knew that there was a pre existing injury. So if he goes down your assumption has to be like this is bad, because it was already bad. And he's trying to play because it's finals and it's game five right? Like, okay. Now, if he's if he's on the ground, and he can't stand up. It's it's not like maybe he slipped. Maybe twist, his ankle, your immediate reaction is to is like, the, the first thing everyone did. When they went to go bash Toronto fans was compared to Philly. So we have precedent that so many other fan bases would do exactly. I think I think the Philly comparison was because everyone says Phileas so trashy just a trash fan base. So that's the immediate thing. It wasn't like oh, like look Philly. Cheers, positive, I'm saying no, I know you're not saying it's a positive, but it was like it was so trashy that you go to the trashy has fan base and sport, for sure. But I think Philly like just has like that. That's just what we know them as it's like when you see trash, you compare it to other trash. So that's what happened there. Right. Like I do think like if if this if like. Celtics warriors and Katie went down same thing happens. You feel me. That's not good. Jared three run. In goumba. It's what it was a boy boy, fucking called it. I fucking called it. I knew it. I said, on I sat on the livestream today, said bet the fucking rent that, that scale hits a bomb. It was a Mazar fucker. I hate Luke void. I hate his face. I hate his hair, I hate his chains. I hate that he good. I hate his name. I hate hubs is stupid shirt forum where he's a fucking king, or some shit. I hate all of it. Yeah. That was like thirty rose back. Even making a lot of noise. The of. Oh, worst. It's not even. It's not judge is not stand. It's fucking four twelve. My ass. That was white fuck man. This people at serious are so mad about this. Yeah. I mean look which took a shit on federal so Zack Wheeler could have used some poo pourri, because he have sprayed it all over himself. And then when Luke Voight took a massive three run four hundred fifteen foot shit on him. It wouldn't smell bad. That's what poo pourri does it helps you it helps you get rid of the smell before the smell even comes out so go to Pori peo-, and then poor as P, O, U R, I dot com slash barstool. And I don't know you can take shit without smell on anymore. I hope you guys are all enjoying the best of k the wild week that we had, but I do want to talk a little bit about something that is very close to our hearts, here on C, C K. Because if you don't remember during the Super Bowl, we all found out that somehow someway, I am attracted to serial killers. So Kevin told me about this. Awesome new game called hunt, a killer because he knew that I would be into it for more than many reasons that I would not even like talk about. So we all know the value of a truly compelling narrative, so now we have a brand new way to experience a story. So with all the documentaries out, like making a murderer and the show you that everyone was obsessed with now you can play true crime in your own home, and it's basically a murder mystery box at immerses you in this ongoing experience. So the way I thought about it is, it's like clue the game we love to play his kids, but it's absolutely on steroids, because you sift through piles of documents evidence case files, you eliminate suspects and then you crack that case and you catch the killer, and with every delivery, or episode you dive deeper in to being a detective. So I'm all over this, everybody on C K is all over this because in this time. We're obsessed with serial killers you can now play this game in your own home. And right now, just for our listeners. You can go to hunt a killer dot com slash KFC. And you get twenty percents off your very first box they only accept two hundred members per day. So hurry and take advantage of this offer. So it's a very selective group and you want to be a part of this. I promise it's a blast. That's hunt. A killer dot com slash KFC. Twenty percents off your first box hunt. A killer dot com slash KFC. See I won't look for it to get hurt. I wanted to get hurt. Oh boy got hurt right now. I buck and throw a party. It will be called Luke Voight got hurt. That would be the that would be the flyer called the Luke Voight got hurt party. What did you think about hubs wearing the league Voight terrible terrible move. That was so weird. Can't do that. Can't do that. Also can't wear that fucking Hodie. Tommy was wearing he looked ridiculous. But was like it'd be like, if I were adjust in Bieber face shirt to interview Justin Bieber. You just don't do house like I mean, yeah, it's exactly what it is. You can't get tattoos of opposing players. You can't wear the guy shirt when you meet them. Do you think that if if the blues when the Stanley Cup that why is going to get a tattoo a Boris? I mean I feel like he has to do that anyway. I think he's gonna he's going to do something like that. If you what there's going to be more. But th- off. But what happens how long did chinchillas live? I don't know he's going to have to get that thing like Taxidermied, didn't like stuff. That's no you can't get your pet Taxidermied. You have to if you've gotta do IP. I mean forever. Yeah. Upset said ten years. All right, good. I think it is. But that just kind of actually made me sick to my stomach thinking about getting off a hat. No stuffing like your pet you can do with. It's like as long as weird. Yeah. You can get like what do you do chinchilla that you like hold in your hands, a prop pet? He's a fucking properties being exploited that mix is if you could make the case. But he's, but y p got rise to fame within the blues community is maybe one tenth of what it is. Without Boris Boris is it's is the key port. Boris has a police escort bores is living large to, so he's, he's good. No Boris dis Boris's, the guy the videos of him holding like in Saint Louis right before game six holding him up. But which I know he did at the barstool radio thing that made more sense to me is, it's barstool like he was on some like, local TV, like some regional TV, and he's holding up in the crowd outside going crazy. Like, what are we like, I'll tell you why francesa with the horses. Chillaz Noman that chinchilla knows he has the right mindset. He knows that he's the shit. He's the biggest baddest chinchilla on the fucking block. You know, you know that when Boris dies, he's gonna pull Paul McCartney. He's just going to buy a new one and tell no one that he should. Yeah. He absolutely Morris is going to the only thing is that, that Chila. I don't know how other chinchillas act like that. Chinchilla just stays perfectly still while why p fucking all around, you gotta have some drunk, Brett Hull, pass them off to these smokes. Smuggled them in this, put them in that, that, dude? He must be sedated or something. Yeah. He's, he's just no just playing the role. The show us. He's the greatest show biz baby that is one series that I mean a game seven in hockey is so stressful. And then you got Dave, and he's pulling all these antics with the blues and allegedly did I hear correctly that they're going to the game? But he's not gonna take it. So, so what fights with a tweet? That said there's two seats and why the odd-man-out let so fights said originally the. Dan, was that they were going to do an electric chair at hurricanes. And then I guess Dave offered like center, I sweet tickets, apparently and do. No, I think he got four oh and wipe. You still young man. And so I think it's a I think it's I obviously cannot speak for this for sure. But my guess would be that it's Dave fights. Marina. And then whoever's playing Frankie since Frankie's on Pebble Beach for cameras. So it's, it's Bruins people. And I guess, yeah. If I also mentioned, the everything about maybe wipe having to sit at hurricanes and do the electric chair lions because that's the thing is now complete dirty, and he can just play the boss card. You have to do whatever he wants even though this is the most important day of why piece life by far Samara will be the most important of his life moment. That is at the mercy like that website, may or may not have had something to do with partial is so funny this morning because he was convinced. He's oh, I don't know. I saw it was. I, I mean, there's no reason to think that this is like going above and beyond because they actually did we talked about this all day, the dispatch, the sailors. Whatever actually did run, congratulatory ads like it's not like this would be just out of left field all of a sudden the balloons being superseded follows the narrative of like they completely jumped the gun. But then once he saw the store and saw the barstool logos on the store. He was like, oh, I knew no. You did not know it. Big cats walking around, like, oh, Weena seasoned assist the store like someone's jacking are merge, and why peas a ball of nerve sitting. So I mean the nerves like with the other night for you. I mean, I know you're not a huge hockey guy, Jerry. But when you got elimination game on the line and big Papi gets shot. And there's you know, I mean you're probably freaking out about the Red Sox. Bullpen it was suc sock Sunday night on Twitter was let me talk about today was Chris Thompson, I've from every different angle, and then you had the Justin Bieber. Yeah. Random is the dumbest argument I've ever had. We did that on case rate up today. I felt like it was genuinely beneath me as someone who does hypotheticals like this is a waste of my breath. If you think that, that Justin Bieber could even like get a scratch on Tom Cruise you're fucking crazy. Those horrible take anyone the picked Bieber. And then we all agree. I couldn't believe what when fights said that. Like most of the office was saying Bieber. I was like just from the age thing. We went over yesterday. It's crazy. And I you know, I would make an apology for Justin Bieber for pretty much anything and there's nothing Logan Paul in the mix beat you up to at the same fucking time. Brisbane like M A or some shit. I think he he he's, he's like walk, dudes Tanaka is giving up fucking missiles, if they hit the right spot. It's fucking over for him. Do you see the reaction? He had when when they caught McNeil's bowl, he was like, who he knows it fucking nose in gotta get to him. Now, do not want that bullpen. Logan. Paul has challenged other people fight and any Jake Paul fought someone in like a rough and rowdy type of thing. So they must be the Paul brothers must be some sort of training. But I mean Tom Cruise has been like you know he's halfway to being an actual action hero for the last thirty. Yeah. That was had that happened that argument happened on a night where Twitter wasn't exploding about the Stanley Cup. And obviously, the big Papi news. It would have been a way. I mean it was obviously, huge deal, the entertainment world's third, but it was their place because way, more important things anymore silliness. I know I know you will not speak on rumors Jared speak on rumors now but I do, but I do I think, but I do high thing look in your IRA now is a little scary. I'm scared trying to say I am nervous that big Papi is more caught up in this whole thing than I wo-. Brock, I think it was chocolate white over just came in whip something at Jared, that it looked like a fucking rock. I mean, I'm that was unnecessary. Wasn't it? It. A chocolate covered almond that can you can I have this, that could that could take out an I know my concern is that poppy is a little too caught up in this cop. And what this whole world of what of drug lords world I dunno. She's talking about. So, like, I, I don't think that you end up allegedly, perhaps maybe sleeping with a drug lords wife, if you're not a little bit like plugged into that world of Kevin, like how, like, how would you how else do you even lies is of the worlds are the ones who need to get into the drug, kingpin stuff, because don't you pink, and I'm not saying that million. I know but you have to. I mean I'm not. I mean I'm not this all electric. He's also you think that that's not paying for the bills right now. Do you think that he allegedly? All of them like the drug underworld is just like, oh, like this guy's powerful will. I'm David Ortiz. I'm fucking wife, but that trophy is not as nothing to do with being involved in any of that shit. I, I hope you're right. I'm just saying that to me, it's like I just don't think you come across, like, oh, thank you and Kayla king without like the island, where do you even get to her? I mean she probably wants to him. She's probably like, like, if you're if you're a girl, that's like going to it's still not gonna find it, and it's like druglord husband or whatever, like, because I'm sure he's probably off doing whatever you might be the girlfriend on the white, but I mean he's probably fucking around, too. Fuck around. I'm gonna fuck around. It's like, well if you're a powerful guy, then I'm like, I know I like Paul guys. And now I'm gonna go to fucking the most awful guy in Dominican history, fucking hope. So I just got worried that it's like, you know, one of these drug lords, it's kinda like I mean, the dude populate builds the Dominican, right? Yes. And a lot of those things like construction and stuff like that is always, you know, mob related or whatever dirty money. And then all of a sudden you don't even wanna be, but you're like, you know, you meet with some dirty politician over this shit. He's like you gotta go talk to, like so, and so if you want to actually build over here. And then when you meet poppy kinda like Ozark, unlike, let's say, let's it, so you, you want to build something, whatever the politicians like all right, we're down. But you gotta get like approval from fucking Pablo. Escobar whoever, and then you'll be Pablo Escobar and all you wanna do is get like a a approval and Pablo Escobar sesame like yo dude, like, give me like ten million, and I'll turn that into, like twenty right? I got a business opportunity for you. It's not like a of dealing drugs. But all of a sudden you just get caught up with the wrong people. You meet this, girl, you end up fucking her. I just. I guarantee you things you just like. But I'm saying that's not good. As you're I mean. Well, I mean he's actually slinging the drug wanna. I don't wanna fall. I don't think he's involved whatsoever. I literally think that if this is true. I think she came after him in and he was just like yeah. Like it's a power play for both of them because my thing also is that if you are not involved, and, you know, you're fucking druglords wife. Yeah, you're not just like out and about. But I mean there's definitely a sense of like Ortiz probably think that he's an offensive like above the Lord who ever come after me like your. But if you know you're talking a very bad guys wife, I think you say like that's not you know, if he wasn't doing that I get it. It's like, listen, burn a tough in a tough neighborhood tough island. But I run this joint so, like, I'll be fine. But when you're directly like I'm doing something that if they this guy found out, he's a murderer. I don't think you just like are at the club like at the restaurant whatever. Yeah. But I mean like you saw the reaction. I mean obviously you, you don't expect someone to walk up with a gun and shoot from behind, but, I mean, everyone, there was ready to murder that guy like murder him in cold blood. I am shocked at didn't happen outside of the club. Yeah. I mean that guy. I mean I said this on case your radio, I gotta take for you. I feel bad for that guy. What if you love that I feel bad for the gunman come for the gunman? Yes. Well, yeah. Doesn't wanna kill poppy Dottino bad for that guy. Do because I feel like he's killed copy or kill you. Now, I don't even think it was that I like what those guys do is they go after people that literally have nothing and they offer them bombers like you cannot turn down this offer. If if, if you like you have maybe thirty cents in your pocket. I'll give you five hundred grand to kill David Ortiz, and like, and then it's life. You're, you're living to see my kids and my family 'cause that guy he could just put the gun right to his fucking a moment you down. He was like I don't wanna do. I mean granted it wasn't an actual suicide bomber mission. But in that situation, it kind of was like, you know, if you're that guy, and you shoot David Ortiz, whether you kill him or not. You're fucked, you know that. So why do it? Like I mean, it's kind of just pick your poison. It's like you're, you're no you're not gonna with I wouldn't want a drug Lord. Like I think at that point, you're like, maybe I'll just go like full breaking bad. I'll just be like you know, this guy, the only way I can stay alive now has to be like this dudes hitman, but you have it. You're going, it's going up again. They're not professional assassins. Like that's why the clearly dude that was bloody in the video just getting his head kicked in and bottles smashed over his head. He was the motorcycle driver that was not the shooter. It was two dudes rolled up on a motorcycle. One of them got off. He was the shooter. Yeah. The shooter like ran, and then the dude, let guys even worse because that guy you gotta just peace out. No, he crank I can work. He tried to get away and then fucking crash on communist beat the shit out of me was like, dude. I'm just a getaway guy, so involved. Oh, yeah. No, no. I'm not saying he's innocent innocent, but I can just imagine being like man this fucking. I mean, honestly right now, I would pay someone to kill everyone on the keys. Oh, god. It's eight four. Now he four GO or against starting I, and we've got geo or shell of the podcast, just shops. He hit a game tying home run against the Mets today. And apparently just drove in the eighth round of the evening against Wheeler here. Well, the problem is Jared, see it's one of the afternoon because there's also an evening Gamera. And so what we're looking at right now is we're staring down the barrel of a two game. One day sweep, which is such a kick. Right. In the cock you gonna watch the game tonight. Of course. I don't want I have to. I love the rain out last night. I watched some net flicks chilled out until the fuck and gain the basketball game. I watched that with, like a open like whatever happens happens. I invested speaking of rain delays. I know this is just completely out of nowhere. Dave, calling greenie a literal human rain delay today. I don't know if I've ever heard of worse insult that one that is tough that you don't want to be a human rain delay. Don't you don't want the Mets used to call Steve strap, Steve Trachsel human rain, delay took, so long clay buckles was onto, especially when clay Buchholz David price were in the same rotation because I think statistically, they were the two slowest workers in baseball so of noxious. Yes. Social. Was like having a David price start after a Chris sale start is unbelievable. Chris sales like he's literally done baseball's at the San sexy minute. Yeah. He's not just juggling. What do you have another ten strikeouts? And they blew lead. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. No. He, he has eight s a games of at least ten strikeouts in his last ten starts. And he's like out of ten saying, he's got at least ten strike and how to. Yeah, oh my God. Isn't saying Red Sox bullpen numbers. Crazy that the Red Sox, the Mets, I get the Mets need all the bullpen happily get and it's never gonna happen. Because at the Mets, the fact that the Red Sox, especially when the Yankees are good, too are not, like let's go fix this problem. Right. Fucking now is astounding to me. They just can't. They can't pitch in the ninth inning. Like these were the numbers that I dug up this morning that I was befuddled by these in the in the seventh and eighth inning. Red sox. Relievers are our third and era. Second whip first in strikeouts, per nine innings in the ninth inning twenty eighth and ERA twenty-seventh in whip and twentieth. In home runs per nine. You're talking quite literally the best in the league seventh and eighth worse than the league in the night. Correct. I mean the only teams that were worse than them were the model oils. Having count. They're not really. That's not that's fake. That's quadruple. They're the worst. Have you tried like pitching some of those eighth inning is in the ninth have yesterday? Nation here. So Ryan brazier Matt Barnes, Marcus Walden Brannagh workman. They have a combined two four two ERA zero nine four whip eleven to twenty-six canine and six through the sixth and the eighth. Same guys. They're ERA has doubled in the ninth. Like you take the same fucking guys dominating six rate, put him in the ninth. And I was just like Nope, don't know what this is you in the club at home. No. Oh, no. No. Oh, no. Oh, no. Oh, no. See the problem. The problem is you gotta get Wheeler out of their hundred pitches. Nine runs through five, but what's coming is the guy that's given up. Nine runs. Probably shouldn't still be the problem is the guy who's coming in. Next is probably worse. Other fucker Wheeler throws ninety nine I know and gets knocked around you soda Syndergaard. It's like fast doesn't matter in two thousand nine hundred think the fucking, I told you the video that we did with bregman made me puke. Yeah. Like the converted velocity was a hundred eighteen miles an hour. And he was almost in front of it. Yeah. Just crushed it like these guys are so advanced now they can time like a moving airpl- I remember to into dozen fifteen the stat that killed the cubs was like their collective like batting average was like a buck thirty against ninety five mile an hour pitching and higher. And it's just. Not that way anymore. It just doesn't know fucking mean anything. Yeah. If you don't have a wrinkle in it, you're you're going to get. I would rather I'd rather be like a junk baller, then just like a straight line fireballer. It's such a. Like you can get paid off if people are going to always like wa hundred one on the gun, but it just doesn't fucking matter. Remember, like it was it was as early, as like twenty eleven hubs as given a thumbs up through the window. What a fucking weasel. No one's lifetime. You think sex. Oh shit. How about you being fucking loser bearing Luke voids shirt to meet him gives a fuck. Everybody most people would fuck. I, I said, put my life savings on Luke boy. Hitting a home. Run today. Oh, yeah. That was. And there was. Thought you were these fifteen. That's a lie. That was that was like four seventy five. We have argued later says, okay. I'd rather Vargas in this show, we were just talking about this guy. These guys heavens Syndergaard throw hard and just doesn't fucking matter. Everybody can catch up to it. Why did it rubs? Because who's going gonna put out? Problem here is you get a hundred pitches nine innings through five nine runs of five innings. But what do you who else? Are you going to put in, you know, go gas Kanka Selman and just watch the fire erupt? What are you gonna is also double header? Like I said that on the podcast because I was actually worried about it being Vargas. Not realizing they've already started the night game. If you go out there and you throw a clunker when you know you need the bullpen for tonight as well. Guess what broke you're wearing that one mogavaro? So it was a complete game shutouts fairly right? I mean, I would rather him tonight trying to be fucking crafty than Wheeler just out there throwing hard fucking island follicle grin on his face. This is I mean, void is hit a fucking three-run bomb. He's gonna be at home win the homerun derby win a million dollars. The first Beijing also homerun derby is now. He's not and you also conceded that he's much better looking in his hairs, better. You thought idea. Okay. Well, I told change to that doesn't look like an excellent anymore. I told Kevin the same thing. I told you I said, listen, I made a lot of fun of his haircut. It didn't look as bad in person comes like 'cause not the same haircut Mars like, well, then I retract my bike has hair grew in. It used to be a ridiculous shaved mohawk. And now here and there though he's an asshole, I said that I, I. I said that for fun. He looks I said that if he got hurt today, I would throw a party and I would call it. The I'm, I'm happy Luke Voight got hurt party. That's what I would do you or evil. This is going to be able to this is going to be really this is going to be an Oakland tank really. Seven. Yeah. I know how these things go. This is going to be more. What's coming out if it was more than games if they had if this was a three game set had they already lost, and then got swept on a double header to end it. I could be thrown out the big twenty five and the two games. The problem. The problem is going to be they're going to score too many runs in the first game that we have to stop because like we have to play tonight like this game's going to go on forever. If we just keep scoring runs here. This is going to quit and like just six inning. I would rather I would rather if I could just cancel this game right now and say, let's just let's just get ready for tonight would do that in a heartbeat my goal right now to get a position player. I'm only JD Davis pitching by like the eighth. That would be great. I want that. And you guys. You too smart to do that. I don't know how you do this. Like I'm in a funk right now at the Red Sox being such a dog shit to him. And I life is if people are like surprised at what else can I do? It's been happening for thirty four years, Jaren. It's been happening for almost roughly thirty years of like around the conscious and can. Oh, jeez. Oh my God and can understand what's going on here. You know what I mean? Like it's been my entire life. So it's like how what do you do you just accept it? It's like if you're, if you're just like born with a disease if you're, you're born into like being poor. She was like, I don't know man. This is my life since you've started the counseling thing, what's the longest you've gone without dropping the c. Console the team. I mean obviously didn't I I had like a kid series. One. What are they saying? I console the year. They made the wild card, which I just don't really consider the playoffs. I don't remember when. Probably the latest is like. Early september. I think there's been there's been years, where like the Mets get this September very historically. And they just start sucking answering here we go earliest mother's day. Or yes, there's definitely been years, like with a really bad or I've counseled like three years in advance. You know what I mean, like we're not going to be good until, like twenty twelve like if you were talking thousands of nine it was like, you know, this team is going to be bad forever. But I'm trying my man Clem but it's council meter how how close are we? We are in Jerusalem. We are in the either or it's either red or orange that the very end like the opposite of that. I'm very close teetering of very close. And to be honest, I probably should have. There's I've said this is a hard council on a soft consonant like they're not gonna win the World Series. So in that sense, there, counseled? But in the sense of like should I even bother watching this team anymore. The hard council, we are tittering on the edge. Eric here comes Kennedy. I'm gonna put on my objective hat here. I don't even think it was like all that disappointing. I think that the St Louis blues winning the Stanley Cup is a nice little sports story idea. It'll be a movie. You're not a hockey guy. No. I mean I, I was like that was disaster what it was a disaster winning the Cup is a good sport still. That's that's true. But a game with your. Yeah. If you're ever real hot, Bruins guy. I mean that was a game. Seven blowout on your home ice. You know, the game itself did not live up to the hype. If you're the if you're a Bruins fan, you should for sure. Feel like you just got kicked to the dick. You did. Yeah. In terms of disaster, national, especially with story, especially with hockey usually by the time you get to a game seven. Like I feel like most games. Evans are like, quadruple overtime because it's like you're so fucking evenly matched and everyone gets tight and everyone plays not to lose. And then all of a sudden, you're quadruple overtime in someone just like squeaks, one in to the fact that it was like a quick to nothing and then they never came back. They never responded may not only getting a quick to nothing. The shots on goal difference in the first period was insane. The Bruins we're gonna win that game, seventy two that they looked in the first period or Beddington had the game of his life, and I know I mean, I don't know enough about hockey to really break down the Xs and os. And I know the to harass has been like that dude the whole play offs. And I know he's been filed Burg's guy, and I'm sure there's a lot more to it. But four goals sixteen saves is, you know it's one of those outings sets like I get it that a lot of the mortar complete defensive breakdowns that Marsh. And line jeans, fucking insanity. Like, I'm just going to check out during the middle of his breakaway. So again, I'm not enough of a hot gotta really break it all down. But I also think, at some point when you lose game seven and fashion. And everybody's gotta take some blame. And you can't just completely if he's going to get all the credit. And again, speaking from fireworks, one of UK's. I've heard so much about to ask you gotta get all the credit. You also to get the plane when you give a four goals and game seven and only put up sixteen saves and no matter how no matter what those circumstances those goals. I just it was great. It was great. It was great Jared. I mean it's you get excitement. Well, don't burn his horn you because here's the thing, right? It's great because it was Boston that lost. Right. And you hate Dave in, you love fights, fights, actually cares. Doesn't well, here here's what happens with me. And the Bruins I don't care enough about hockey to really like when they won in two thousand whatever thirteen no eleven eleven. It was like not like devastated. People like mcgillicuddy he's coming. And I was like I hockey parade doesn't doesn't get me going, but Boston is hockey town. Right. But I just personally don't care the same way. Like when the Red Sox went, I'm happy with it 'cause I hit the Yankees. It's really only in the patriots and then just overall Masol's that bugged me. But so, so when the Bruins win, I am torn between good tee shirt sales, and good business versus just watching Austin assholes, Dave miserable. I don't like seeing fights upset, but I also am not gonna you know, I'm not crying for John vital Burg losing a title. I know how much hockey means to him. I know how much particularly this team meant to them. I know how much to Rask meant to him. And he is genuinely devastated. He was like he's on his way back. We got an interview today. He's like can I just cry the whole time please? Like about how there's not hockey in Boston till next April really funny. I mean Dave is he does this with, like Michigan football too? It's like he's a die hard when they win. And then when they lose he's like I don't really care about these guys. It's totally fine. But that that is what it is. Michigan is in the college World Series. Are we going to be seeing college baseball? Dave. It's dialing. About in direly possible. College baseball. Dave coming out, just full force. I that was a real, just a stunning turn of events like in Boston to that place. Must have been a fucking, more glass night all and leading up to the game. I know I saw that. You, you tweeted Grenell words like buzzing, everybody was, like tech buzzing boys was an insane scene in Boston that game last night. Like all my friend not been many game. Sevens in Boston throughout this run know somebody was giving me ship you like how many games sevens have your team's been in. And I understand that they haven't been in it at all. But you could be a dynasty and Nazia games up. I say a lot of teams that are great that are always winning in four five, and six seventy one and then and then particularly to be at home as well. There are thing that just might not happen a lot. So I feel like they ran a package last night that said there hadn't been a game seven and a championship series in Boston. Since the eighties was not. And that game seven the Celtics Lakers, one was in LA when they lost. Yeah. I think so. Yes. I mean that's just. A complete I walked to the cross sort of eighty six World Series wants a seven, which one eighty six World Series went to seven in the NBA finals, and eighty six and he was just at the garden. Maybe they weren't talking. Yeah. But either way throughout this incredible. Run, there just may not have been many or any game sevens at home. So despite being on top of the world for fifteen years now, this is that was still something at least very rare. If not completely new to the city of Boston. So I can't imagine they will buzz and it was were buzzing. I just I there, so bad. I'm glad I could not a morgue scene is so quick and you know what really killed them? Is that gold that second goal with, like seven seconds to go in the first period? Like if you just made it out of that alive, one nothing going into the second, I feel like it's totally different verses is just so deflate and giving up any goal in hockey, right at the end of a period. Nothing happening in the second periodic zip numbers are so crazy after the first period, Michael Hurley Boston, he tweeted the shot. On goal Boston twelve the Blue's four shot. Attempts, Boston twenty two Saint Louis eight and it was two zero boost shots on goal. Easy to goals at eight shot attempts in tools. That's insane. Like there's no other sport that has I really feel like there's no other sport that can be that lopsided rocky, and I feel like usually as long as you just continue to play that game. Like it'll even out, you know what I mean. Like it happens in football baseball. Not so much. There's not like nearly as much Mendham in that basketball for sure like but in hockey, it's like if you don't keep that up spotting them, a two-goal lead fucked, right? You know, and football, you watch the patriots, and it's just like all right. You the down fourteen nothing. But you just know that, you know, they've been playing the, the like it's all plan. You know what I mean? Hockey, you can dominate that one period, go into intermission, you like everything just switches, up momentum changes, and all of a sudden, you, you basically spot them into the elite just fucking knew that was going to happen, though, that yes, in the first period when the Bruins were. Essentially dominating, like they're not scoring the first goal of the game. I didn't know. I didn't think I didn't think that they were going to be going into the second period down to nothing. But I knew that the blues were going to score I because the Bruins we're getting so many fucking shots on net. And none of them were going in the blues going to randomly. They, they're, they're not even on the other end of the ice at all right? Like just gonna put one join Bennington was gonna eventually have to stop playing the way that he did. And he just never the quote about the tickets. Yeah. Love that. He said like six grand? Yeah. Tickets. I gotta get my money's worth like it's so funny that I mean I don't know what that guy's making. And I'm sure it's a little bit more of a tongue in cheek joke vally the fact that these guy, you'd probably is like jeans, six grands. All my family and friends and house, I spent six grand on the ticket. So I mean like I gotta get some bang for my buck here. And actually I was trying to read up, I on the origin of the phrase stand on his head. I couldn't really find an answer. I've thought I've thought about that, too. Like where did that come it was? It's I read something about like when a goalie has to make like a rebound save. He's often like just throwing his legs up in the air, and like, and then it was kind of, like you know, as if he was standing on his head has no. That was a Rubik job at the end. Doesn't make any so anybody knows that maybe we were Admiral can call in or something you live. We're emerald live now. No, I because I feel like you know, Dave is whatever and fights is devastated. But he's like in the content game. And he knows how it goes. And, and like Rear Admiral is just a feel like it is literally his lifeforce marina, marina, realize you live. I talked her this morning. She's going home though. She's not coming back here. Like she's going to go spend the day in New Haven. Yeah. I mean I don't blame her. I would go into hiding for sure. But honestly as much as this is a Boston company, and obviously, we're always gonna have the Boston slant the blue. I mean you know that that's an all time when whenever a franchise wins their first then gets the monkey off their back ends a drought and half a century of failure. It's, it's an unbelievable story Kayla is the cutest, little around the world. Yeah. She's awesome. Yeah. That, that video, her mom made of her going to Boston. It was great. So in the cop like, and she was just like. Or say she like screens out loud, that face that makes it all worth it for people that aren't blues fans that story makes it. Right. And then you look at the pictures wipe us out on the ice it's like Kayla. Andy cohen. Why p the maroon brother in fuck and flip flops on the ice? Like it's just so I don't know if he's alive. Why p probably is like you know with the team right now, right? I'm sorry. Are you alive? And I've not heard anything. I mean he was in. I, I actually, here's a take I feel bad for why p why why being in the Boston sweet. Is tough. Yeah. Like he didn't. I mean he's happy. I don't really feel bad for him. But, like if you ask me what I rather watch that game there or like at the bar on my on my couch and my family or friends, I would rather be with my friends, I'd rather be with race Reichen cheer. Every those, those faces he was making the videos are hilarious. If you look at Dave's Twitter or why peas I g stories like he's looking at the camera. And he's trying to be kind of polite and not be like the asshole, like road fan trying to be like gracious today because he needed put up that tweet saying, thank you so much for bringing me to every single Stanley Cup game. But he couldn't just be like fuck. Like to be able to I thought that to suppress yourself all time hit the video, he made in the bathroom and the sweet. Did you see that? And he was like smother them put a bag over their head pull it tight so that they go like this. Take a knife and stabbed them murder. These a serial killer. Can you give me that clip? And then also fucking sniff don't want this crowd get into suffocate them put the bag over their head until they're fucking going like this. And then they just go limp. Make them go Lynn murder these people put the fucking night, do their part in. Let's win a Stanley Cup for the fucking lava, God, Cleese hockey guys, can you get me on my time land from last night. The blues fan who made the pump up speech in his car. Did you see that if you haven't seen that, okay? This is my favorite pop of speech of all time. And I really mean that this kid, let me get him proper credit to because I think he kind of has like he runs like a blog or a fan account or something like that. It was so unbelievably awesome and self aware because he talks about, like how shitty of a city, Saint Louis. It is, we posted it on the barstool account. His name is Blue's buzz, go to at Blue's buzz blog got. That's. And we got topped pin tweet you got. I mean, this is all time ship. Picking. Retires today. No. Face. Their legs. And like the scout. On, we have one of the highest tribes, par capital, two world is ever saved. All. Third world country. I love that shit because especially when, when, like everybody gets into which teams or classy, which are better and this guy, just like we are trash, we murder. Third world country. My mom is from Saint Louis and she is grimy man, very openly like listen. It's not great. She's I could not get out of Missouri fast. Was that bad? While I think it's one of those, like, it's, it's one extreme the other perfectly nice parts of town. And then it's like, you know, literally the highest turn. God drain the family still lives in Saint Louis. And it's like you can just be driving down the street and you're in a bad spot you can go left to go right? You know, it's like is avoid certain places like it's the plague. You you win a Cup. And like how people who are at Busch stadium that pretty in the rain. Yeah. That's kind of crazy. Absolutely crazy. No. You dead to signal. And you would you sit in the rain to watch the game on the Jumbotron depends on the situation because you don't even go down the street to five guys if it's raining out, what do you talking different? You would not sit outside the rain if, if you could transport me back to two thousand four and what I really matter what I watched the Red Sox play the cardinals and Saint Louis at Fenway park on the big board. If it was raining. Yeah. Yeah. I mean you got you got to keep that in mind that this was not no one's called the curse because can blues, but in their mind. It is their mind. For. Because we've talked about this, if the Mets World Series, you want to be with your mom, watch it like aim football. I'd want to be with my dad, I would rather be watching it on my couch like my closest friends and family than sitting in a fuck, I'd be down to not it's raining raining. I think it's cool to be because it's like you know, it's basically the same experience. Watch. Right. Super. See the. What was the video of the kids in the girl night? She that are saying it's his mom. Oh, ho, ho to blog about it. I'm pretty sure it was hubs like parenting that was that was at Saint Louis fans that app, which I think so. Okay. So there at Busch stadium and they score a goal and the crowds going wild. And this kid grabs a woman, and she does look older. And he's. And like our caption was like this is the debut, stop caring about fortnight and like the dude he's with his friend is like all should, oh, it is mom hubbs. How would we know that? I don't think it was people on Twitter being like that's his mom or sister. So it's probably just people being weird. That's, that's not, that's not the way of mom kisses, this on that better. Deem thrown ship. I hope not. Erin types shit. Little weasel had to bring in Tom Brady, kissing, his son thing, of course. That's gotta be his mom. He looks like he's Jared, what he kisses her on the lips. Gotta be the why was young. Friend wouldn't freak out if it was, oh, I think his friend would out even more. It was his mom, right think. So if my wait, wait hang on. What do you say that the way friend, the guy that's that's on camera last like freaks out after the kiss know ways, there's no ways freaks out that way, if it's mom? Oh, I think you freak out, more if you saw me kiss, my mom, you wouldn't be like, like of not the way not the way he did it kind of weird of. All right. This is kind of weird. Yeah. What the fuck are you doing out freak out, more especially considering age out freak out more if that's like an actual random girl at that young age? Then, you know I'm hoping I'm first of all, I'm just sincerely hoping that this is not his mom because that is super weird. But it is like an older woman. And I'm hoping that is just like somebody lady next to them, and they. Yeah. I don't know. I would have never look at that, and his mom until I read hubs, his blog and saw the Twitter reaction to it. And now I'm convinced his mom. I mean she looks like seventy. No. She's a little bit older. No, no. Did she Twenty-one at most? I g slow it down twenty one old enough to on that age really. That kids get ten. Yeah. Right. Yeah. That's the biggest thing to me is that I don't think they can be his mom. I think that's a mom. But that kid is old enough that the mom has to be like, even if she had a when she's like sixteen. He Tony six. I mean that's. That senior old that, that's, that's an we're really trying to. Twenty twenty like she could be thirty years old. That would not be that girl could be thirty years old. I think that this is all narrative, creed about Twitter, these people and I'm still trying to figure out if it's mom. I think is that weird because I think this is mom. That's that is not that guy's mom come on a wholesome program here. We're not talking incest. I understand. I don't even think that would call FIS incest, I think making out with your mom is they're making out. You're just trying to defend Brady kind of Tom Brady, full blown, kisses, son, does not Kevin kisses on way too much. Yeah. I think it's a little weird but. Hope so. Yeah, I think that this is just. Cop in the moment when a championship you never won before the fact that this is probably not his mom at all. But that the narrative that kids, probably like home. My god. That woman is like the one you can really tell who she is. Like if you know her you see her face the other kid, you can't even really see this girl is probably like I, I don't even have a son on here. You barstool sports. That's for sure going to be thing. If it like spreads, like people. Parcel made up narrative, incest, this woman. Just just I just can't stop thinking about Jason mckeown just sitting at home by sitting there with his poster board is ripping using his real name. That's his name now. Jason McKean, Patrick Padilla Cutty died. They that kids sold out, and turn his back on the on the fun. The joke and the nickname and the place that gave him his fame and it's over for him now. What happened? Bad patch guilty. Yeah. He did like an interview with forgot here for this. It was the most cringe worthy interview. So staged his dad just the whole thing, which is awful game was that they ran that game five. It was. It was awful here. So he did an was before the last, I think was before game six, I believe it was so bad. This is just this guy is so fucking lame. And she just played again there, the microphone while it's quick. Everybody heard so mcgillicuddy. I'm I think there's the curse mcgillicuddy happened since it's happened. The blues lost the rose loss at home and pop got shot. So we're adding David or do not. Would you not if I'm talking curses? And one of the all time legends across almost gets murdered. Is that not falling under the curse? Yeah, you're gonna put that on mcgillicuddy hundred percent. I can't believe you guys wouldn't either kids out here. He's touching the money. He's talking a championship that never happened. He turned his back on the mcgillicuddy folklore him and his dad or super lame now lamb shot and losing super lame. The fact that I cannot stop thinking about his dad's saying, well, we have a whole bunch of logos stock like you can't fuck imprint one. What are you talking about and the like? My favorite memory is making it with my dad. Shut up dude have fun with that. He is. I interview wouldn't be with. And we talked to them, we ask them to do the documentary, the dock and he has his dad very respectfully decline and I was like I get it like you know, he's a kid and you don't want weird like exposure for your children like fine. But then, that's, that's why I thought I thought he was just want any publicity do this NBC thing, and not even mentioned like are still or like I mean, people run up to this kid and yell mcgillicuddy face. It's a thing that you can't tell the story without telling that part of it. Because his dad's squid yeah. He's not great either. I were you? I'd be upset with this kid because big Papi got shot after he did this. Yeah. There's definitely connection there, Kevin. I'm just saying I can't believe that Dave Portnoy like he didn't get his way his black magic didn't work. Do you know why talking about like getting mcgillicuddy on the dock you're talking about the Bruins not winning the kind of all of it? But specifically that in the couple of days in the building, we did the towel thing we had a lot of people rallying against us. That's always when Dave's black magic comes through where you can shove it down. Everyone's throat and complaining, literally look like Bruins and five this dominate. I mean I remember saying. All right. That was cute. Yeah. I was thinking, you know, reminded me of like the Sixers and the Lakers back Everson one game one. And then, like I put you to rest and game three was the seven to game, right? There is no way anybody looked at that and Jordan Bennington would do what he did last night. And I mean, the, the weirdest thing in the world is the blues home away splits playoffs wild how. Much better. They are on the road, which is like the only scenario in which I think that a Boston team with Dave Portnoy backing them at home for a game seven can lose. And it's the magic of the chinchilla. Lock magic of why wasn't. I would imagine Boston's not really gonna be as comma dating for of Saint Louis superfan. It's probably where is. I mean, what percentage would you be worried if you were the owner of the chinchilla bring him into like a hostel drunk, Boston environment? I wouldn't be worried because they're in the sweet like, yeah, that's true. I, I would if you were with people I could see drunk, asshole, biking him on the ice. Hey, give me a fucking rack awesome on the ice. I wish nothing bad to, to Boris but imagine if you like thrown on the ice and he was alive, and he's Ling I think it has to still be in Saint Louis because didn't have to drive him to Saint Louis because he couldn't get planes. So talked to Adam, he's from Illinois. You got some thoughts on the blues fans. Yeah, I got a PSA for the ten thousand blues fans who watches game at Busch stadium in the rain, you're all fucking losers. You went to a forty thousand seat stadium to watch a Jumbotron, find a bar. Find a friend. You're a loser if he went to that. I don't hate that take also don't hate doing it. The rain is what to me is the weirdest, weirdest part, but you still get the same like atmosphere of going to a game. Yeah. I. Crowd and cheering with your fans. And like all that shit. You get you'd get that experience. I don't think that I would ever do that, even if it wasn't raining. I really don't like if am was playing in the national championship. I no way I would be going to Kyle field and sitting there and watching the game on the Jumbotron. I'd rather watch it with like. Watching the bar. I'd rather watch the people I care about. I'm not like stadiums. Yeah, I'm not gonna go myself. But if I rally like a few people that I would go to the game with, and I just did it on the Jumbotron sometimes are is like you know you wanna like focus on the game. And, and sitting at home, a little, too, like, blah, I don't hate it. I hate it in the rain, I would never ever do it in the rain, wait on line four. I would never pay a lot of money for it. But if it's something that's just like a valuable like what would you rather do that or drastic park? I'd rather sit in the stadium address the weirdness sit in random in a random spot. Like then you should like the whole point like Bush thing is you get the stadium experience. Right. If you're not going to be in, like the ballpark, or the field or the arena, and you should be another random place watching a game. You might as well be like indoors. And watching the game out of bar, I would never I would never do the bar experience. I had to like the watch parties, which were very cool, the fun. But they're not like great for the game. Well, these ones were because it was like we were right in front of the TV. We have like we did talking about which game watch for the World Series. So we did it at a bar you wear out all the game at home. Like I always allies and yeah, yeah five, but rolling to your in Boston, and we basically, we were up on the stage and then people like the crowd was behind us. Yeah. And we were watching games like that was cool because like it's not like you're bumping. Into people, and it's not like claustrophobic and yeah, you have a great view 'cause we're fucking right there in the center of attraction there. Yeah. But I wouldn't go to like a random bars watch a game like that experience. 'cause you never not like it's I don't know. It's just not something that I would want to do as a fan I'd much rather. Watch it at home. I love I love a game watch for a game. That's either not that important important enough to be doing a game watch. Not that important where it's like my life is on the line. I can't watch a big game with people who don't match my paddle agreed. Like if I'm the right risk, you're out at the bar girl care. There are guys who are, and there's that because that's fine. Because at least you'll at least you get like fake energy, like people pretend to be excited, and that's fine with me. It's if I'm like at my friend's house. Hey can we put the other game on like we can we like flip flop like the ruins and the Red Sox even other in the World Series like no, no? We cannot watching this right back commercials. Everything not touching. The channel even have to say that as fucking. Fear. I'm with you on also depends on the sport to like I don't like watching football at bars. I don't know. I just don't unless it's a game I just don't care about addle. See football to me in this way, argue that baseball is the more important sport. Because footballers highs, this whole culture of like the bar around it to me wings, and I wanna be like, you know, I mean, I'm watching the teams I care about I don't wanna be in a bar on a on a Sunday. If you just go watch NFL at a bar. That's awesome. But if an EMS playing in a Morton game, I'm not watching that at a Martin. She's not doing it. And I would damn sure never do. The drastic park thing they at Cowboys stadium. They have like you can get into the stadium into little ATM area. And but, you know, have seats just go in and just stand and watch the hardy decks, understand that sports makes people do shit. You ever go to Mets game by yourself? A bit. The probably weird head you now. But, like, say you never worked. No. I think the opposite. Oh, yeah. But I would. Yeah. Go now kind kinda weird people recognize and all that shit going. Now, take Barsov the equation would be the time. I do it like wife and kids like need to get away. Like still wanna watch the game. But wanna get house. I go by myself the problem about the problem for me New York is going to games is a hike. It's a bitch. And it's always like I want to get off the couch and go to queens, like they gotta take drive, which sucks or gotta take metro north end. Take the subway out like it's not just the name when you're there, you're like in the middle of nowhere, like if it was if it was a downtown or like the way Philly has that whole complex or fenway's in the middle of everything. Right. Then it's then it's fine. I don't go to many games period it's going to Foxborough came. It's just. That's your naming a whole day. Yeah, there's one way. And one way out. He ended his awful. And so I just I have gone to many games in general. So I certainly haven't gone when I do want to do when I did one time. And I may want to do this with bar. So I want to figure out a way to do this. I did a booze cruise that ends up in queens, because you can take the boat right up to the marina was great. It was a cover band called Creedence Clearwater revival revival. They were there. Ban that were great and it was like, part of your ticket deal. And I wanna try to a bar. So the ballpark, where you do a boost crews, I then it's fun because then, like the worst part of getting out to cities now actually the funnest gotta get to the game. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, we did it on a day was ninety five degrees, and it was like brutal and it was still a lot of fun. So I can't hers are they're great. They're great. A couple hours prior to the game. And then you're there you're already drunk and you know, it was it was pretty perfect. Big boost guy water taxes on a nice night, or whatever when you get water water makes everything different, whether you're on it or sit, like even like, if I was ever, just like, you know, you wanna come over and sit in my backyard and drink he'd be like Alan flow, weird you must around the pool. Swim. You can put your fucking toe in the water as long as you are sitting by a body of water. You go to the beach. You don't have to go in the ocean by the beach to go. Yes. Looking need the body of water to be the thing? If you're on it, you want, you want to just like, sit you wanna go. You wanna go for a drive. No. Not really wanna go out on a boat. Yep. Kevin. Blake, when a pa- sake, I can't wait to just get the fuck outta here, and you'll never see me. Do you have a number that I was saying he needs to hundred grand to retire back to Bob way? You got a number in mind. I mean just enough to buy like a house in lake Winnipeg sake. And then I can just would you like 'cause, like, would you if you got the money to buy the house out, dawn, I don't think so what do you think that I would miss, I think you just need you would keep first of all, you need money you would need money. Second of all, I mean I. Your, your insatiable desire for Rocketeer fame. I don't like Jared you about that love it. Jared, you love being the rocket or police L. David, this all the time two days. Like I don't I don't care about that. Like I just need the money. I'm like you. You're fueled by your fame and your ego, but I could also still live that internet. Like I don't need that in person. Honestly, like I like sometimes did you retire to the wake of sake just right? Yeah. I would keep a Twitter, I would like to go back to like just blogging. One day, like I think I could retire. I don't think retire. I gotta be doing something professional. I can do this until our brains dementia. Right. But I think I would like to get away from the camera a little bit about you just writing if I could blog and live on, on the beach for me. I'm not the lake guy. That's where I'm going life big. I'm going to lake Winnipeg sock. You'll never see me again. But checkout, my Twitter, my blogs. Let's break. We go back a little bit up the call eight three three eight five stool blues fans on here from your Bryant. Bruins fans, I want to cry, and we'll talk a little K D as well. Ruptured achilles. Official a lot more to get into here on Thursday dishes. CC Cam power, you. All right. We're back made a little announcement today case radio July tenth and fights are back on stage doing case radio live after two years off since cow, jello and couch by west again back. Great. Yeah, it was awesome. Right. Bull shows crochet bunch of puss. Rush. Right. That's right. You are. So did you crush? No. I mean enough. Was it multiple posts to show is Kevin to impose? Yeah. Those two nights, right? Yeah. That makes sense with you fuck them in between the show because the first Carolina's it actually, there's fucking like, there's one chick after the first show we ended up like in a car parked on the fucking corner, people just like walking up to the windows and looking hammered. Potter over field. Hopefully, we'll be crushing some post. It's one show only a little bit. You know, catch catch catch catch Macau house, people at the Wilbur theatre. This is back on Caroline's, smaller comedy club or just doing. Like normal comedy night. Now, anyone 'cause we did two shows the first time we were Callans and the second show, first of all people stayed for both because it's different show because we kind of do it off the cuff got it. So there's a reason to get tickets to both. So by ten o'clock, balking hammered, and they were talking, and they were yet like to us trying to be. We show here, so one show, at least for now and hopefully we'll be doing them a little more regularly heckle you, yeah. You can Hackel. Yeah. We got Krista stuff is going to be very dude. We're gonna have him, come up with a little interview, we're gonna do a live answer the internet, recording everybody who buys a ticket when you come through the door, you can submit a question. So we'll do a little audience. Interaction. We have a big screen behind us. We're gonna be doing some audio visual multimedia stuff. So my see my hope here. Yeah. Is to create a new type of live show. We're not stand up comedians, but I also think lane when people just do alive, recording other podcast people to sit there and watch you think if you're paying money and you're going out that it should be a little more of a show and little more funny. So we're gonna put together a good night. And the tickets are twenty five bucks. But if you go, there's also a gold harlequin package or what the fuck is a green package, which gets you like VIP access. No lines and reserved seating. But then there's a gold package where you get open bar as well. Funny story last time we did Caroline's. We told them like be ready, like we're common and this is not going to be like your average comedy show. Night. We're gonna be wasn't dragon. Now again. We got used to big crowds. I was like, oh, we're gonna be Nelson. They'll watch out. They will kept shoring me, like no problem problem. We drank Carolina dry. The only thing remaining was Hennessy, which was they were very telling for our demographic. Everyone's like, okay, we're gonna go to another now cognac known on. That's not that's not for our kind. So we drank the entire Bhadra in one night, because it was too shows like people stuck around came like a party scene. So hopefully, it'll be that, again think we're gonna try to put together a like a post game at a bar somewhere. What's the capacity there? I don't know. I think three hundred is what I'm expecting you'll. Yeah. Yeah. I think we're already like halfway there. So if you wanna get tickets go do it right now. Go to Caroline's website. Caroline's Ambroise the name because I don't even know. I don't think we'll make it like through the weekend ticket. So do you wanna go, make sure you get your tickets? Big, big news right now, breaking news. We had the kissing kid online prior before the break. We were talking. About this video going viral booze fans. We're watching the game last night at Busch stadium when they scored a goal the crowd went wild this kid, grabs this woman, and I say woman, because she looks a little bit older any plants one on our kisses right on the lips. The friends go wild hubs, wrote a blog. And by the way, I do hubs texted me, I do have to say he did not think it's his mom, the internet said, engine feel like this is this kid's mind hub, and all of a sudden luge in that it was not his mom in the blog, so hubs and not say was his mom, the internet set it horses out of the bar on this one. This a mom. Kisser AJ. What's up man? You tell me kissing your model what? Not my mom a random girl free. Sure. She's like twenty three. Wow. Okay. So now this girl's really probably gonna kill someone because like she's not that old sin everyone a mom. So at you are sixteen and you just grab this twenty three year old sexy smoke and just plant one honor. Absolutely. Was there any like? Flaws falls. Reggie was there any like talk ahead of time or you guys flirting. Or are you talking? It was one of those you just they score. They want to call up and just grabbed her. You know how do you talk at all before do? No, no. I mean you say to me like, yeah. You know, kind of. No. You know, I gotta be honest. First of all, never seen the championship second of all, never had the Hollywood moment where it's like I'm just going forward dude. I'm gonna plant one honor where you plotting this, or was it just like he the moment you just did it or you like I'm gonna kiss because it's because it's kinda add it are plotted. Just kind of a good idea throughout the game, who was filming. That was my best friend. Peter. That's the one that posted it. He's tag on everything, and he was just filming. Because the cop like you scored you're gonna end the whole nine little did. He know was about to get show as well. Yep. Did you get a number? I did not know sixteen. She can't, like Aww come through. I think she's twenty three she's not going to be like, yeah, but I give my number to a sixteen year old that it's like that's a legal. I mean number is not illegal for safe keeping. AJ. Did she the kiss you back, you know? Oh, yeah. Did. She know you're sixteen. No. Yeah. Yeah. So the tough part, I mean yeah we're, we're on dangerous territory. I mean bold move by you bro. That is. You got confidence coming out of your ears, dude. I don't know if I would have pulled that move at sixteen or ever been what can I say? One of the best as my life. Yeah. Do you took it from ten to eleven? Can I ask you one thing? Can you guys go out there and giving some Instagram followers? Yes. Sure. What's your what's your handle? AJ T, one hundred AJ T, as in Thomas. A. J T one zero zero. All right. You got a man anybody's got the balls to do that. I'll tell you some love just just for the record, though. I want you to know as you get older. This is not a move. You can pull the sixteen kind of being funny and ballsy. You do this as an adult you go to jail. Just to be clear. We're not condoning nonconsensual kissing of strangers, but there is a funny element went into young kit. Okay. Just so you know, AJ are already good stuff. Matt grads on the Cup. Thank you. I'm sure we'll be in trouble with this. I'm gonna be honest. I think sixteen is probably too old to do that. Probably sixteen when his when he first started talking his voice was like, oh, this problem. I'm trying to get laid. His pretty grown. I like we o'hearn apology suggesting that she could be a mother point three. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I mean it's not like she couldn't be a mom. But like I thought she was like. I'm on the record. Mike guess was nineteen nineteen. I was thinking, Tony I was it was more just so choosing the poncho. And she was so surprised. Oh, my goodness that it was just felt like maybe a little out of place, by the way that are in their thirties and forties, and even fifties. That look like twenty it's not like. Backrow probably is like what the fuck fuck hasn't being like your ex boyfriend or something or maybe her current boyfriend who's the station have right of man, some adult man getting. That's a pretty. She's a very pretty twenty three year old girls. I got a boyfriend and he's getting caught by the sixty year old t one hundred that he's sixteen. Now, do you think, well, she's, she's about to within the next twenty-four with the internet and everything? I'm sure she's about to find out that would be the worst feeling be like, oh my God. I'm on camera making out with a six. That's not great. Did you did? She gives you back over. Yeah. Yeah. Bad is there's polo, like a, what would be your ballsy move like that. And that's, that's something like a movie like a again, you shouldn't do, but you also it takes a lot to pull that I've been bamboozled by guy that lied about his age. Yeah, I was, I was going into my senior year of high school, and I went on a cruise with one of my girlfriends, and her family, and we met two brothers on the cruise and my friend like I'm gonna love your like seventeen eighteen. Yeah. I was seventeen I would turn eight I think you turn eighteen or senior high school. Right. So I was about to turn eighteen and the two brothers about the older brother said he was nineteen and my friend was already eighteen. So it was like okay like that. That's good. The younger brother was like, oh, I'm going to be seventeen when you turn eighteen. No. So you're like close enough. Yeah, it's fine. Like it's your cruise was he fifteen. Was he fourteen Kevin was listen to that? No. This is I go the whole week. Thinking say let's hope that he was also like six to their this kid's close to my age. I we plan a trip to see them after the cruise. Wow. You got fully ban. Bo. Fully bamboozled. And then he accidentally forgot that he hadn't told me what his real age was. And at some point, he was like, oh, yeah, I'm, I'm turning fifteen guys should come. I was turning eighteen and he was turning fifteen. Did you know did you make Virginia? Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. The worst part. I know I had no idea. I was completely bamboozle. She said, oh, yeah. Completely for a whole week and then to make matters even worse ended up going to AM and I ran into him in college. Like I was like a senior news, a freshman, I saw you. Fucker bamboozle. I mean did you do more than make out with? Yes, sad. Damn did you did you did you slide into third base? No, I didn't. Two. Try to stretch double into a triple, and then end up running back to second besa, no. Well, then what you said, you make out you had to go. Yeah. I try to block it from my memory. He was fourteen down your clothes come off. Did you just can't? No, no, no. I was not. I was I you're acting like I was a predator here. He obviously to I mean, he but he's also like lying about his age. He was trying to, like I was like, hey kid, sit out here. Here's to fourth forty. I was gonna say this guy, you know, like. It's to yeah he's probably like probably NFL player now guy six one earned it. He you got booze will buy so bamboozled. That was back in, like the my space stays like he was like my number two friend on my space. You're just thirsty ass. Ho. I loved him. I love to left him. We went he was. I I love to came and visited all before. I realized how old he was came to Arlington, and we went to six flags high school that was like a big thing, right? All the rights, the other got me like a stuff. You gotta drive girl. Oh, I drove everywhere. And I never wanted, I think, okay. This is I was like it was like a summer loving to me. It was like a grease storyline. It was like, oh, I met this guy on vacation, this was your boyfriend. I mean he got a four year old boyfriend. I went to the to the amusement park. Into all rated movies. Parental guardian. I don't I don't feel like we ever went to the movies, but he would give lives like three for this kid to call him. I would love to talk to this guy. I can. I'm sure I could find him on. I mean I would love to hear his side of this, where he was like he had, like a, my real girlfriend situation. Go on, like I swear, I'm dating this girl's eighteen I met her on a cruise and they're like, yeah. Yeah, sure. Really was it was terrible. It was like straight out of a movie because I was so blinded by summer love. I'm pretty sure I kept the stuffed animal that he gave me like, well, after finding out how old he was being like, oh, damn. I it was like a devastating. I remember like it was yesterday. The phone call where he was like, oh, like my fifteenth birthday party. I was excused these. Skis. After I hung up, and I was like, I don't know how to play this, because like good for him her lying. And like I think it went on for like months it had to have. Like a long distance thing. Yeah. It was like three hours away. He lives. It was that. And I to this day still like so mad that I did know but also so impressed that he kept up image, rather kept it up. Well, that's like this guy is like this is gonna be a pimp, AJ confidence. This dude was able to pull eighteen year old chick when he's fifteen and he's six two and good looking like he's probably see know but don't worry. You got booed by a worthy bamboos ler. Oh, yeah. I fell right. Into job. Also probably fingered by fifteen that is one thousand percent show. His fourteen. I wish. Your base. It's a tough. It's a tough story. I'm actually you give a hand job to a forty year old boy. I don't believe there was a little bit of applause. There. No, I did it. This is a parabola Matic episode. But I was too. I was still in high school, too. I would like it wasn't like I was in college feels way, different. I was going into my senior year of high school. Did your friends know did they know at the time. Yeah, no nobody like he they so on. I don't know what the rules are now. But at the time if you're eighteen you could buy beer and wine in international waters, you couldn't buy liquor, but you could beer and wine. So the brother, the reason we started hanging out them because the brother like the first night was like, oh, I can buy, spear, and wine. So they must have concocted this idea. Well before even meeting us, they must have concocted the idea. Like we have to tell people that you're older because we're gonna probably meet girls that are older that want to drink. Yeah. So they were just looking for their victims. It just happened to be me, sick, Dems, I would say willing participant, I was one hundred percent willing, but I did not know he was fourteen. How do you go six months, though without knowing wasn't six months? So the cruise was probably like early June late may early June. And I didn't find out how old he was until the end of the summer. Like it was a full summer summer fling. Underage with an infant. I wasn't eighteen yet toddler. It's tough. I don't know what to say. Obviously have not routed or base when I said, not year old, you're taught me, I've never, honestly, have not thought about that story and so long. I'm really glad that came to light today. I feel better better saying it out loud. So goddamn good. It's not great. It's not great at all urine catfish before Kevin. I have not been catfish, but I also have like done much online. So see, I think it would be susceptible to getting not like full. But like these people get catfish for like years on. That's crazy. But I think if like if a profile looked convincing enough hot chicks, and there's like one follower. But if there was anything convincing and somebody smokes like he'll come maybe like, okay, and then I show up and it's like not someone. I'd be like. Got me. He like what do you want me to do here? I think like I would say three out of every four girls that I talked to on my space back in the day. We're all catfish girls all there's one time. I mean we've all we all got catfish on AOL chat rooms all started back then. Yeah. But like my. Crawling with catfish is. And there's this one girl that I started talking to and obviously, like smoke bomb. Brunette chick. I, I never liked usually you find out like who the real girl is I never found who the real girl in the picture was. Uh-huh. And then she had like her friend was also playing like a catfish friend. So friends in real life to me. That's like this is a systematic attack. And yes, I got I got got yeah. You in that situation. There plugging exactly. I was victim of a plot to Jared. I feels as funny, because, like we found out that like they were fake, and then the, like my friend was talking to her friend. We're both getting catfish. And then he ended up like fucking the real girl anyway is like whatever. As a whole, I don't care who statue. Let's say a couple of quick call here before we wrap up our number one Taylor from Long Island was good. Guys, Kevin congrats on the show. I just bought my ticket. So I'm already July ten. Thank you brought, of course, man waiting for a lotta show like this. So, but I didn't know there's all this piece stuff. So I bought it thinking about this. VIP I to be honest. This is Caroline's thing. It's not. This is not like we came up with this extra package. I think they do all of their tickets, you could buy regular ticket. You can buy no lines ticket and combine open bar ticket. I. By whichever one you want, but it's not necessary. I don't think you need to, to worry about Jane. I mean, it's the general missions tickets door unless you're, you know it's an hour, it's gonna be like an hour and a half long show. Open bar is probably not all that valuable unless you really put in. So I would I would just get your regular ticket. And then when I when I figure out where the, the post game is going to be that's what we can do our damage drinking and hanging out. So don't worry about four appreciate it congrats. Thanks getting in. If you've gotten to get and take to this one, you're, you're one of the real ones, so let's, let's hovering.

That's Neum dot com slash KFC. The weight loss program that you need, and we'll keep you losing weight all year round. Right now. Our two we have the Nate Dogg in-studio up CC Nate. Now I'll be honest, Nate I did not expect to see you in this office when you walked in front, he, and he was on tour. And hit back door on Friday. He told me this morning when I asked him what the hell are you doing here? And he said, why have a job to do? I have to be here. I feel guilty when I'm not here, but. Yeah. I don't hear high. Really? I worked came to work today. Couldn't you couldn't you make the argument that you could do more content on a tour bus than you could have here today? So here for tell the story for what happened last time I saw everybody was Tuesday and myself. John Kate, and Robbie FOX went to the show in New York City on Tuesday night. Great show, John, would you agree to blast? It's called pier. Seventeen it's a new venue the lovely it's beautiful. If you can see show their go see, 'cause like all the buildings are lit up. It's like right in the middle of Fidai, the bridges in the background Empire State building is glowing wonderful venue. So since we're friendly with the band. We hung out with an after drinks were flying stores were being told good times are around offers though. Jason Jason Biggs for American pie. Was there and all four of you guys were partying not just Nate. Right. Like you guys are all involved in the John during John drink. The biggest couple whiskey I've ever seen. It was just a glass full of whiskey, and he was in his element. It was like the tunes were going. It was a beautiful night. And you. He had a dip in like a Cup in one hand for the dip in a glass of whisky. He could have died right there, the happiest man. That's Johnny fights, especially because it was pre game seven, so he was just flying. He's on top of the world. Still yet to be crushed again. So we wanted hung out with them after little bit. Like at one point like Robbie goes home. And then one point Kate goes home, and John how to train to Boston. So he goes home. And so it was just like me and the fellas backstage at pier seventeen drinker flying stores being told at some point, we had vacate the premises and we're going back to the bus. So we went back to the tour bus, and that's where things are getting fuzzy. And what I later learned is they were kind of playing a game that they do when they have guests on the buses. Let's see if we can like inception him into stain on the bus and taking a ride to the next city. What I later learned was ninety percent of the people are like, no, that's ridiculous. Have a life tomorrow to go to work ability? Fifteen minutes from her this buses parked not ten hours and fifteen minutes, which is where we're also feel like an under reported part of the story is having your next tour date be so goddamn far away. It is the longest trip will take this tour. The one that I took a New York City to Raleigh is not like a quick like little trip. It's philly. You're like oh, that's funny. Hop on the Amtrak here in forty five minutes. Yeah. I went ten hours away. And so that positive. But yeah, you're right. That is. That he was asleep for ten hours didn't realize he was gonna wake up. Yeah. With concert speakers. But yeah, usually it's just fucking town. I believe it is the longest bus ride they're going to take an entire summer tour. And that's one that I was on. Yeah. Basically, I wake up the next morning in Raleigh, North Carolina, and I start having a little bit of a panic attack like, what am I doing in Raleigh North Carolina? And then all the pieces start coming together. You know, they start telling me how the night went and what we did. And what I how I ended up there and what did you do things happen? And whatever who are these other do they tell you any of the other ten percent who have been goaded into staying. I think it's just like they're like, pals from back home, like they have, like friends that have been following the ban for a long time since they were in high school and at hot Ohio State in college, and I think they're all in their forties, and all these people have like wives and kids, and they try to get them to, like, just like blow off their wife and kids, come on tour with them. And that's why most people say, no now are still Nate has a wife nor kids nor a job. That really matters. So let's go to Raleigh North Carolina, and they were surprised you ask the wrong. Pets mine. It's cool. I'll tell you this, the bunks super comfortable sleeping on a tour bus very easy slept like a baby. I think that's what kind of helped is. I just slept right through the night and dark in there. So dr. Heart attack. If you didn't because you were if I know tour buses, which strangely kind of. The you're in a familiar pretty confined space with imagine shade the as well. That's paying you wake up in the middle of night. You don't know what you're doing. Yeah. They're tiny little box hours. The tough part is I woke up very early in the morning and wire my moving like why am I own wheels in a dark coffin what's going on? And then I just fell right back sleep. And then when I woke up the second time in the morning like Jerry this axiom players making a PB and J in the kitchen. I'm like, why are you why funny to if I if I woke up something like that I think I would just like I very well could be in the back of a serial killers car that'd be like, well I don't wanna be rude. I'll wait until you hear someone else up. I do want to start. We do a friend's house. He's kind of pretend to be asleep on what I did. I did want to be the first person awake at a sleepover. So I waited till I heard scuffles in the kitchen, and that's when I knew people were up getting coffee. And so I kind of hopped out of the bunk shimmy, then. Hey fellas. So a couple of had no idea what I was doing there because they went to bed early. And then while then other people bandmates came into the kitchen to get coffee and make breakfast. And they started telling the story about how just like, yeah, we kind, of course you sand on the bus and you were all about it. And they thought you would say no to that, like. It was the wrong. Fucking that pretty good. Computer? I said that too, because you were able to blog yesterday, and you had your laptop all I had was my laptop, I had no clothes deodorant toothbrush. They had an extra toothbrush around. So that was that was positive deodorant for the last few days, I borrowed clean person, and then I played the show on Wednesday in Raleigh date. I asked for my per diem. They said they said, no. Yeah. So the show was great rallied, the crowd really brought the heat. And then we got back on the bus. We took the bus overnight to Atlanta where they had they had the day off yesterday. And then I flew home from Atlanta yesterday, New York, if they didn't I would a day off, you had that conversation with yourself. You were like I could easily turn this to a summer of content. Yeah. I mean I mean they're not on. They don't stop touring until September gripe with what the day off hang out on the bus by myself. I mean they're such nice guys. And I think they just they kind of enjoy the whacking a little bit like when you coming back to wacky. And so, I think I'm gonna hit up a couple of west coast tour. I've never been to Callie. I've never been California so they're playing the swing where they're playing like beach town beach town beach town, like San Diego Huntington beach like outside of LA, and then one other one I'm like, yeah. Basically going to be going on tour in the Pacific Coast Highway. Yeah. And I've, I've never seen any of that. I got to play a little Tambo. Get a hang out with my band. It's a pretty cool life. I like I said, I'm shocked. You came back. Harder for that paycheck. It's not show for the people like sixty dollars. Come on here. One sixty dollars, you would have had previously. Yeah. So all in all besides the mini panic attack. I had when I woke up ten hours from home. Not bad, little well, we career. Boy, sounds fun. I'm just like just like smiling. So big it looks like a lot of fun. Yeah. Like I was like watching you glow right now.

As even over this controlling share did the everyone does applauded jar for playing with the Josh. I knew we were going to go with the hockey. I'm not saying he's a hard over this thing is a heart. Oh, in general kind of hard over this. It's like just taking fucking start off, dude. You know, nobody cares nobody. It'll be Washington nationals. No one cares. You don't need to go out there like with your face broken and prove anything, how stupid looked in the video. That was the thing. I think he knew that he was the asshole, and he had the cover up, basically it was. I mean, that video is is all time. The not even what Magli Maxon is white sunglasses, like a goddamn, dick, and he's like Laffin like fucking around, but the star of the video was the guy throwing BP because it was just like gotta be my fault. It was so you could hear your dad happens. Yeah, that's what happens when you pay attention messing around out there. I mean he didn't even try. That, that head sucking point, straight up terrible that has also like that hurts. But the embarrassment that you're feeling in the moment. That's the only reason he had to do this, or that doesn't happen. AL ballparks, max Scherzer's I shine is a we have everywhere we wouldn't have be be blessed with this fucking clip, because they've rate fair point as well. Right. The fuck was going to say suck a dick, I was just gonna say something I forgot what it was. Oh cell. You see those comments on it. Pacelle fuck. He was like he's got arm still right? I mean, I did think that was more harder than anything. It's hard to pitch the black broken nose. Brockman owes it doesn't affect my arm at all. That is fucked up your faces swollen. You're not going to be at your best, but you can still throw. I mean he threw seven innings ten ks. Talking about pretty damn good. Keeping with baseball, maybe one of the stupidest ideas, I've ever heard in the history of just ideas low Lona sports are baseball Tampa Bay. Double raise becoming a two city team lung Montreal half the season. The first half of the season is played in Tampa Bay. The second half is played in Montreal. It's no, yes, it's so bad. It's so bad. It's only only one way, I'm in is if when they go to Montreal there and team. Yeah. After be completely different leagues when they switch like that they can be in the east when they're Tampa. And then they're the analyst, I don't know. Maybe we get like the Marlins or some shit. I want the uniform to be like the bottom half. Expos. Yes. Just plucking abortions of outfits the outfits. Baseball. Outfitter. Vermin proper. It's the stupid, but like it's so done that it's great. I was loved. I want someone. They said no been permission to explore the idea. Like it's gonna they're gonna go. Wait a minute. We're going to have to different like houses. Yeah. This is this is like what Frank Reynolds came in and told everyone that their mom was dead. And then it goes. And then it goes, it's totally gauche intact, or no doubt, anything they say, well, that's not to create this point of it. Like I'm already all in on it happening that if they don't, if it doesn't happen. Furious. What they're I mean they should move to drill is the horizon. Yes, they should just abandoned Tampa Bay. Oh, they should stay half the season damp. Obey, can you need at least one season of this draft by the raise, and it's like all right now you gotta go talk to Canadian. Do one half in Tampa, one half of Miami, you're going to different countries being they're fucking account. Moons half the year know everything about it is, is awfully xrays. Talk about it the better the two best places in the world, right? You gotta work at it. That's gotta be baked into this little property and Mazda foul poles stripper poles want their uniforms in their outfits on top of being multi national. I also want them like little league style where they have like the advertisements, and it's like okay Venus funeral home on the back. Strip clubs. Okay. Like a hybrid of oak, Canada and the national anthem. Like, we don't think like every other word because both one let's call it what it is both just takes up too much time. And I'll be honest saying it's been kicking rants. Yeah. Okay. This left. Slap, the I would like to speak to someone in the MLB though, it will podcast, it'd be recorded won't be. Like what'd you, what'd you think? What did you think it was going to win this announced that there was going to be a team, the Tampa Bay rays of Montreal? It was crazy enough. We did Los Angeles. The Table Bay rays of Montreal, I, I honestly, I promise the MLB this if that team becomes real. They will be my favorite people. We were talking about how vice and tickets do this. Travel to go to zero game. Right. You check every little by every piece of merch. It will be. Will be no concerns rays with a whole new national anthem and really nice outfits. I'm fucking people love for at least one single day on Twitter. When when when. Like a hot dog. Jersey. I I'm gonna re tweet this and never give team again this team. I will dedicate my life to this team, this team should also D H, but not for the pitcher. Like second basement doesn't hit. Perfect. Yeah. Just because this'll be fun, just to see how mad like I like. Mockery, the whole big time mockery, Peter. Gammons. Keel over dead. Neither these cities real really do remember elementary school.

You could use a fucking tennis racket ball bat this. Like he's a fungal bat. You can use a metal bat, you can use a wood bat on false, anything you want a golf ball with a metal badge funnest thing, I think we don't like baseball. We need to change this. No, no this the race.

You gotta stay in the Trump definitely the Trump. That's the one they move we need to keep the Trump alive for like other things conventions. L Johnson, remember what was this, desolate in horrible place? I've mentioned as radioactive for sure. Also with baseball the of that the Dominican officials are saying that big Bobby was not the intended target of that clearly intended hit first of all shuttle baseball three topics in a row on the run pretty good. If you stay relevant, we have one of your murders completely cockamamie ideas and have an asshole, the black guy turned baseball, and the highest. For you. Are crushing it. Yeah. I mean this is just do good. Yeah. I mean it's. No one. It's, it's what's the expected with the Dominican Republic. I mean, they've had what ten Americans die there this month this year. It's crazy. The the tourists doing go to the Dominican right now. You deserve to die. I'll tell you what. In the Dominican Republic who does not know what David Ortiz looks like like you don't mistakenly shoot. He's also not a small guy, even if you work confused boy, that guy that I'm supposed to kill apparently this gigantic.

The truth always cuts deeper than a lot. John's weren't pink pants. Millennials are grown horns Coley says he has horns, definitely I've had this like bumped back here because like. No, no. I'm feeling a lot of skull here. Tons of skull. I've got big skull going that the I've, I've been saying this river that the haven't yes forever that millennials are growing in the back of their bodies. Going to change and our next we're gonna get weird our hands are going to be what ails, look like in movies. We're gonna look like is gonna Volve are is they're going to end up it. Predators have slits pray has like the wider is like, we have a little more peripheral. Or is you're gonna get like horizontal. Look like fuck aliens, because we're going to keep evolving because of how we deal with -nology that's been one of mine for a bit. You can't tell you haven't said that. I mean spot the lie. I think he's right. And go listen to KFC radio say that shit evolutions. We just walk around with our having for blood gonna fuck. Stats while the way it's like when your head is up like this proper, your headways, eight pounds. And if you lean this much becomes, like twenty five between this much your head like way, seventy five pounds crazy headways eighty five pounds as it is correct. You lean forward? It's got two bills a little baby bird neck, the feels like already long, but I don't even agree that evolution is going to happen that quickly. Gonna happen to me. But eventually, if you guys got horn. I dunno. Like we still have gall bladders, those things on doing so stupid. Appendix appendix is Tennessee's those out of there. Are they in there? I, I can't. The hanging of the head has more active influence on the body, then, like just going to pass onto our children. Children children children's like spinal curvatures it just will. I think we'll just wait 'til like these are having kids, and I didn't Mike way from my dick for like, we haven't microwave and dick every time we knew that we all do that. I don't know. Just even sometimes you got big pockets, it just falls over their laptops. Forget about it laptops. Yeah. Fifteen years, I'm proof positive, though. Life finds away. I've always thought that I'm making myself sterile. Maybe you're. Zapping, making them Zubrus in that with the disaster kid, just like beach. Just like beats, you know, kids like this. You'd stink. Motherfuckers? All right. That's it the drafts tonight. Subway. Oh, yeah. There's a subway fight guy. Br brings back to a gun fight, not a good idea. Catchy. I have no. With you. That. But while he's as baseball very heavy also had a basketball sports the baseball. All times a pickup game. I've got. On the. Got a basketball, tote bag and. If you have a gun, a gun, beats basketball and yet still like rock paper reluctant to use a gun because of the finality of it if that. This guy might. A distraction, and then he hits it with the bat. No, you're done in trouble. But as always with new city subway videos, the star is the, the onlooker who's just like this shit, dude. This is inconvenient. He's trying to guys waving gun thirty four easily. Papa it was give huff. He was caught in a red light and his life. Like those guys. I'd really prefer. You've not hawk your candy bars. I really prefer you shoot. The guy eighty he was upset didn't get shot. He's. I actually listened to the audio which thing I rarely do very late and watch the video, I listen to the audio as well in this one, the guy with the gun is claiming he's a cop. That dude. That was that was not a gun. No. That was. He was like he was acting over waving people away. You're under arrest. I don't think that's popular arrest. They just don't let anyone stand near them. Keep yelling. You're under arrest. At the restaurant vigilante Justice. The draft is tonight, which means it's a mix tape extravaganza. What's it's like seven thirty. We've been trying to figure out like the actual draft supposed to start. Everyone's very unhelpful on that. And. Like ESPN's is like we kind of started seven maybe definitely, like, there's definitely not pick it seven years past. It's been eight thirty right? They did shifted up so look for us to go live anywhere between seven thirty and seven forty five. Who do you think's gonna go? Number one. It's hard to say it really is. It's a crapshoot this all the drafts. This is the hardest one. Excited for j Barrett. Yes. All right. It seems maple Mamba I speak for the casual fan, and let me tell you are J. Barry does not move to not moving. Will you need? Agreed. I think Zion did not exist. RJ Barra would be that dude this year just happen to play right next to him in that guy shadow. I personally have never watched some play very well. But I only watched limited basketball numbers are good. He was like highly touted, and here's the thing like it's going to be him. So let's get behind like down with an extra got off reason, and we should be down with him to Mabel, mama. Trying trying to get their able Bombay Canadian because that's because Andrew Wiggins was Mabel Jordan, Andrew instinct. So, right. You don't want that Kobe's worse than Jordan. You would assume if these out is that what they do Canadian players maple something because eve fucking. Guys maple. The big Maples for strong Mabel, mama. I'll get behind able Jordan sounded cool. The first time you've heard it. And then you watch Andrew stuck this isn't solving was going to say is there any chance? And sure it's zero that the pelicans pull like Houston Texans. What everyone thought they were going Reggie. I mean my Williams you would have. With the Texas. Mareo will Larry woods. I mean, you'd have to be so confident in yourself to think that you're smarter than everyone else on the planet to not. That's one of those things like just draft. And if he's a bust, it's like. Like. Soapy that sucks. But don't get. Greg oden. Right. That's that would make me take someone else. Like, look, first of all, I'm so dumb. I'm set for life, right? Like if you have ever front office job, you're set for life, you're going to get hired somewhere else. Maybe not as. You'll always have you'll be pretty much. Gimme garland, any sport. And the fucking coaches. Genie's a change of scenery, you need that means, for from office person, but whatever, New York. And then if you're right. Yeah, yeah. But then low risk reward has there's a tank on draft. Draft. Cowards takings island of luck. Here's. Like they have number four, they could just try it up to two in the other guy. You're so enamored with do that. All right. That's the rundown. Check out mix tape. Pretty much everyone involved or social casual fan. I like Bill Simmons is Celtics roster. Oh boy, what was it? It was Stephen Adams. Okay, Jason Tatum. Jalen Brown heard them Marcus smart smart trading. Little russell. Okay. And then takes fourteen twenty twenty do I'll see how we can get Stephen Adams and then all three picks. Look, I'm just saying what I saw don't shoot the massacre. Does he do? Slightly above five hundred. I mean that team Steven Adams, the thunder are trying to dump them to create some cap space, Stephen Adams, shitty of with a love Stephen Adams, absolutely love them the strongest man alive. The ngelo Russell would just be like getting younger worst. Kyri. We were pretty up for that. Did I, I watched that team for certain fun team? It's definitely a team. I spend, I spend more time. Two teams that will play basketball, I'm still terrified that we're gonna sign Ricky Rubio. So I'll sign on for that. From not America like you. All right. Let's. Oh, god. International disastrous.

Pierce or Ortiz: Which Boston Athlete Wore It Better?

"This is a good one. That's a really good one maximum this one thirty one. You know anybody who used to play music that number. By. All Day. All. Big. Up there. The last. All right who were better? That's the name of this episode. Sedgwick Matchel podcast episode. Of course, I Joe Sway Pavonis. You talked about this article from steeply of the athletic of iconic. In the city of Boston and I picked out six of the toughest. To to to put to pin for one player right Max, there's a couple of. Where we're doing it. Is this two players Right Boston sports? They both will the same number, but which one are you going to crown at the king of that number so I listed numbers here and go through them. One by one Mac can't wait to hear which ones you pick. Yeah, yeah, gummy said it'd be interesting. Steve Buckley You know the the reporter for I think the Athletic Yup. He's doing. He did a real good article on that, but he went from. We're just GONNA do six numbers. He went from one from double zero. Ninety nine, but so we're going to give account abbreviated version of. The six of my favorite early, we both talked about it. These these are really really tough to choose and sure you know our Boston fan base crowd will absolutely agree with this. Let's get started number one. Stay number five is our first one right number five. When you think of right away for me, I grew up. Seeing both of these guys, but the first name I caught up with Kevin Garden, and but then another name came right after that, and that's Nomar Garciaparra of the Red Sox. Yeah I mean he was a brilliant player. I mean he was, he was that guy. Would the red sox for the longest time and using thank that he could really be replaced and you think about the way he played, you know. The gyrations he went through when you went to the plate. If I was a baseball pitcher, I was private through it and we damn man what you doing. GOING THROUGH which is. This. down. Man will do raining. Sunshiney ever checked so i. mean he was loved that? They, did they? But I still have to go with Kevin Garnett because. He changed the culture of that Boston Celtic team. He Changed Paul Pierce. He changed. He changed the culture of the Celtics during his. Time he put an imprint on. This team is greatest all the players who've been around. He put an imprint on in particulier, and this was the Garnett Pierce Ray Allen era, and but the big fellow, the the big ticket he would get my vote for for that. Particular number is number five. Agree with you that I just think like you said he changed the culture here in the city. He also embodied what this city stands for in terms of just giving it all. You got that just gene not show, and he also held his teammates accountable I think it makes them not only one great leader, but makes them so on that you know okay, everyone that'd be on the same page this one that's literally how the defense was for Doc rivers, and those guys and he was all Kevin Garnett well, he did. He personified. Yeah, he did he may. He made a bunch of money Rondo being one of. Of, those guys may Rondo better now. Perk better, you go down the line. He Changed Paul Pierce. Paul Pierce, his attitude. He became a better player when Kevin Garnett guy here and Karen was the thing I loved about him. Is He did his job bill? Belichick loved him. He did his young. He didn't if he was like he deferred to Paul. Pierce came to on the opposite view or Ray Allen for the shot, not he couldn't make it, but he just said that's that's their particular role, and that's what that's what they do and I will defer to that and he was. He's been. He's the ticket is. There's one close though look. Give me still giving me wrong I mean we both agree that we're gonNA Cagey here, but no more I mean for a while for a little while before the red sox kinds of for they win over the Hump and was. legit contender to to win the World Series Nomar was the reason why you saw them on. National TV allied. Nomar had that exciting. Aspect that excitement on both ends you know as as a shortstop, and of course as editor and. To me, it was no more then came Pedro then manny, and then you know, of course the rest is history, and unfortunately no, my did get trading four now without no more though without getting those defensive guys like Medicaid you know the guy that came out of that trade. Orlando Cabrera maybe the Red Sox. Don't win a title I don't know so I feel like maybe because Nomar sure he didn't wasn't there to see the to the end, but he had a lot to do with I. I don't I don't. We're not shortchanging them, but I think we'll will still agree that. Keppler that is the number that we think about when you think about numbers five. That's the first thing. I next up, we've got number eleven. This one a really good one to lab. We got to to to Patriots plays here. We've got Julian. Ataman and we got drew bledsoe for young. It's out there before Tom, Brady it was the bad as do. Named drew bledsoe man I was a big drew. BLEDSOE was bad boy and I think that. You know as you said He. He embodied what the team was like. Until he got knocked out, and Brady stepped in, and never gave that job back in was there for the next twenty years or whatever it is I still think that. Right now elements going to get my vote because he was MVP. IN THE SUPER BOWL! Anyone multiple super bowls Less one one, but let's wasn't starting quarterback. That's right so I still believe that element with that number eleven to me I think is is. Is that Guy Yeah I think I agree with you for for stars, but also I want to also bring up. It's easy to forget. The steelers game they. AFC Championship game when he came back in to this day. Man I don't think Brady. was that her man so this day after like Brady was I went to go get a couple of snaps in there and got a couple touchdowns. You've been doing this for years. You deserve this. You've been working. Ask off because he was healthy. Remember he was healthy to play the big debate was. Do you give him the jaw? Would you stick with Tom Brady well? That was true. Tom Brady year. Remember that was the question in all veterans assumed. Dead, it was going to be blood, so it's going to be guy getting the call. And BLEDSOE and Tom Brady told veterans like Nah. That's my job. I'm not given that job and he said I'll be. I'll beat in Ange sure enough. He he has been. He was a man but I. I'm going to have to go. You know looking at element as number number eleven. Would you say he's one of Tom? Brady's best of all time or maybe the best receivable and they the best. Hard this is over Moss, but by the Passover Moss Moss was mosses dynamic and I don't think element is A. Very different is a different player. He's a scant bag. He gets tough yours but randy moss got spectacular, and you know you think about the Moss and Moss, just putting a hand up and should know. It was off to the regime's war. Everybody you just throw it up. Yeah, so so I just. I just think those guys are two different, so I I would say Randy Moss was. Probably the best receiver I think Tom Brady era logo, but we'll go with that other number ones. We'll go element. Our only gets out one next up number fourteen now we got Bob cousy of the Celtics. And we have Jim Rice of the Red Sox. which you them hoes conning guys man. That you think about and you go, wow! I and we have to go a cousy. Multiple Championships changed way. The game was played on the offensive end. Germ Rice was dynamic hall of Famer. but I still think that Bob cousy was that guy and germ rice was another guy for the longest time. I would have been a better hitter if he wore glasses, he found out later on. You know he had some brown his eyes and he was hidden in the ball out the park. With you know without glasses. Then you're member of suddenly came. He had glasses on up to the plate knit. He was still bopping them out. But Bob cousy would get my vote for our. Agreed same someone who? Someone who I would say sort of revolutionized the point opposition at least. The he's the handle the ball away. Your number have to think about and then I. don't even know this is completely different. I keep thinking about Fred Lynn the not what Fred Lynn. The number he wore because they. They are the two guys me Dad. Came in together. It was land and rice. Those were those two guys. You're going on my guy where they combination. Those two guys had that. You think about all that you know. Guys hit with power and Fred, Lynn. Everytime we look around. He's making these fantastic. You know catches in Centerfield. That were crazy, so yeah. I still think. Bob Cousy, getting back to our subject Bob cousy was that guy. With number nineteen so this is an easy I I give. Props to Buckley for Together Man Double Zero through ninety nine Mandala, Hammerstein of. Those those good interest in numbers definitely. All right next up. We got here we have. All right next up number twenty four Max at Thai law the Patriots. Or many reminders of the Red Sox don't forget to twenty four zero Pablo Number Sam, Jones, of the Celtics is numbers retired number twenty four, and also people sleep on Dwight Evans his twenty four for a long time in the outfit for the rents. Roy Evans was. Out. Feel so. He mentioned four those he roamed. He roamed, but This is hard to pick against Sam Jones not because I'm a basketball player. But because he was such an iconic shooter, his Bill Russell will tell you even today that Sam Jones is the greatest shooter. His ever seen He played at North Carolina came out of north. Carolina Central University in Durham, my mom. Went to school with him at North Carolina central during that time. She played basketball, too, so yes, Sam Jones would have to be the name that. At the Guy Picked for anybody else? I'M GONNA many. Omya risks I'm on. Facebook I'm not sure there's any the look on your face lets. He's not David. I didn't say anything. I'm just going law, which is saying I'm this, but I don't you know you're one man? Feeling that. You slept on that era red sox. Baseball I don't I don't get. These are not watching baseball night. I didn't sleep on the air and I I realize manny has been was a Konica me the fact I think I was There's there's a GM over here equals now, and I remember being over there. One time in many lived over here some place in the four seasons, the hotel over year and I'd see it from time to time in their. You know just working out with weights and all this. But you but manny, you though is get that thing. Just. Many be manny. But you can't say that what he was doing on field controversial maybe not all the time. You're little on the field as well but man. That's win. That era now did you don't get the ones who don't get Ortiz? Combo without Mesa things off of that signing. I mean that was a huge sign of the red sox in two thousand. On unheard of contract at that time, and really got the ball rolling. You got many housekeeping. Pedro signed for a couple of years. You still had no mar there. You got me. Any is really got the ball ballroom years. Thing you wonder about you know we'll get get around to, but I'm as your baseball question. The Min-. MINNESOTA. Let go of David Ortiz. Well, he'd been in the pharmacist for us. They brought him up and he just wasn't. You know they just didn't see it. You know what speaking of you know. I'm gaps. I'm glad you brought this up. Many Ramirez was one of the key guys reaching out to the upper management, saying I play ball with this dude in the Dominican League. You know during the off season and you decide him and signed him quick. Because someone's going to get this guy, this guy can hit. Trust me on this one, so they brought in and play I. He was an on off the bench guy up until Bob mid. Mid Two, thousand and three. So this is the year before they ask wanted. That's what he was. A permanent started. Okay. Let's not get carried away. You get you get your eyes. Get glazed over. You. Start Down, Ma David. Ortiz Oh my God I'm really we? Let's get back to where I'M GONNA. Give you a biography. You. Question, we're going to get there. We'll get there. We'll get there. So, that's the that's the top spot. Sam Jones I got to go Sam Jones again. The best shooter Bill Russell ever ever played with and how many championships did. He get eight probably something like that. Seven to eight championships, so think about world championships. Here he has he has more world championships than then then manny in Ortiz together. So I just think I'm GONNA. Go with that name. The Sam Jones. Ten Championships. Olga. I'm sticking Mama Leone. Okay Oh, would you got the world? This episode of the Cedric.

We Got Cedric Maxwell my co host. Play for the Celtics of course and you've got John Lewis. Though the Red Sox is a tough one John less. WHO's bad when John Listen wasn't no senator. John! We you know. Speedy through the great pitch, you know left hand. He stayed in, Boston. It's a possibility, but he ended up in winning with The cups in winning world series with the cubs so. You know I. I'm going to go with me me me again on that I mean I'm not not not the kicking him, or whatever, but to win multiple championships be follows NBA to get to. The phones Hippie. Issue of I, hear that right which people don't realize that Lee field goal percentage twice. The first four there were to do it in the history of the NBA, Donna Max that you go. Just give me some and. Give you some facts about this up now. Just just happened to be history and I still hold a couple of Celtic records right now, fuel go. After thirty thirty forty years so so yeah. I have a lasting memory there and. Just just to put you know asterisk to let's put little punctuation to. John Lewis Number is zip retired Oh. Okay Okay and my number is in the ALKA. Okay in the wrestle, but it does that thing who knows. Next time. Hey, you know what the? ACROSS TD guard. You know you'll be interested. We were the celtics were trying to get a reggie. Miller the come retirements right, yeah! Myself in Reggie, we kept talking every time I see him as it do, I'll pull it down I'll take down you. You can work thirty one. Thing No, no man! You know, you deserve. They have I said do. I don't mind. Because? I think. I think. I mean, but that was really think about it. There was one number that like that was tired and it was a the. Jim Left Guitar his name, the only name out there because his number was retired and I think was it was either. What's it maybe was Cowan's to somebody in the word that number and so so they put his name up there. So if you go to go to the garden, you see all these retired numbers. Novice saying you see less guitar is like. Wow, why why is that different? That's why it's different. Now I'm finally doing something about my weight. A awake went eighty weight. Already dropped about eighteen pounds and I'm not the only. Cater Perkins Down, about, thirty! Two of the eleven thousand who founded the Lucia wasteland. No. No medication. Combination of Science Treasury kid. One on one. You have. I recommend you call agent urgency. You'll lose weight starting the first week and Egypt's every weekday to get to your ideal weight.

Await your it weight loss. A weight loss program whether Boston Red Sox. Ambler particularly with the numbers man. You know there's actually a story recently came about about. It was tatum in. Jayson tatum. When he was really tweeted this out when he was at Duke, he wanted to wear. He's a big number twenty two. That's been his number ever since he was a kid, and that's numbers retired by Jay. Jay Williams number when he was with. Play Duke obviously is career yet short. Of Accident, but he asked them hey. Usually do. Managed. By number. Team started using zero it is. He stuck with it ever since? So, that's why. Here. I mean you I'll go even further you talk about the thirty one to thirty. One was when I first got here. In college my number because I love Kareem abdul-jabbar. My number in college was number thirty three. So when I got to the Celtics thirty three was available. Then we had a Steve Girsky was wearing and I wanted that number, but he they had cut him, and then they cut him. They asked me they want that. I want that number. And then I had number thirty, and the thing was I had number thirty, but thirty m L. car came to the Celtics and he asked me. Could he get that number you wanted he wanted thirty, and that's when I went to number thirty one. You know thought about going to thirty three. I. You know when you do that all the bathroom for a minute. But then I had thirty and I was I was comfortable with the number, and I probably wouldn't change that number. If in fact, Imail car had come to the Celtics and he wore the number thirty wins in Detroit, so he wanted that number NASA me, and I was like A. Problem you ever superstitious. Then that you had to do not only thing I, did before game was people always ask me? Why did you leave before the national anthem I because what I did, I used to go to the bathroom. Because I. Had I had this nervousness about me and I've been more to. I guess insult anybody by being Jide, jittery or moving around during the national anthem so I used to remove myself from the arena and go to the bathroom during that time when that go away, so it was a game started the game started. They was fine, but I just need. I wanted to go to the bathroom and here the national them. What's the end and even today? I do the same thing when as a as a broadcaster, most most arenas now if you. You. See me. I'm not at my station. Because normally I have walked out before the national anthem is play, and then I'll walk back in some sober, and there's nothing to do with I don't like an anthem is just a nervous energy in the habit that I had when I was a player. You know taking New York new noon. I go in there now. I remember you some sometimes before the Games. You ask the National Anthem, oh. That's cute at town. Start warming up. They'll. Go there was there was a fan one time about. A year or two ago, who came up to me and I? Think I was over in. Cambridge and this guy walked. I won't ask you a question. What's the question? So why are you a? Are You Muslim? because. You don't stay for the national anthem. I said no I said has nothing to do with that I. said, this is why I explained it to I took my time explained it to him, and I guess he said okay, but he was making a big deal of it, and there was no big deal to be made it all. He was reluctant to buy. Yeah, yeah, I didn't WANNA buy that. Last One The. Best one has saved. Invest ass like we always do. Number thirty four. I'm. Thirty four Paul Pierce, course number thirty four Boston fans, the thirty four. Is that Pierce, who? David Ortiz Hall. Pierce and David Ortiz are iconic Paul Pierce. He used to bigger icon. August Brady's in there, but the last twenty years they wore the same number. You, you probably know again, think about Brady. Those who been numbers you think about all the years that you Assay Brady? Ortiz. Now whether the number you think you might say Carney sought law the garden it, but it was pretty much brady in the past twenty years I'd say the Paul, Pierce here's not yeah I mean I still see a number thirty four all around the country, right? Guard, yes, yeah! You'll see that almost any place you go in the country, you'll see Paul Pierce. Jersey Gray. He hasn't played he I saw this. To me is a coolest thing I've can't because. There's not a lot of people who have my jersey, but when I see it, I think is one of the coolest things somebody is wrapping Your Jersey and walking up to you is the, and that is really you. That's really really cool thing and my particularly era. That wasn't just wasn't even. All the people that were thirty three neighbors number because those throwbacks didn't come in until that particular time that they had started, people were in the throwback jerseys so probably yeah, hardwood via so I think it would be a little different of me seeing a lot more. My Jersey of my Jersey numbers with my name on it if it had been that time. had been now. Dan Dan not now. So he pigging, which when he got my go appears. That, man, yeah, they go with. Those close this this close at me. You know. How how? How can I be hating your boy if I ever on on the table? Max's next got the The the David Ortiz Cook David Ortiz. With the Pros I'm in this book but David, Ortiz. David Ortiz is the headliner you look at the guys e. Russell these guys up here. He's had on this book and you're going man. This thing is so cool. We think about Pedro all these guys who gave a but man. It's it's close. It's codemax lists. City would still be talking about the curse of Bambi. No the curse of the Bambino was of a David Ortiz. We'd be would that would make it. That makes a hundred years my seed. Were you talking about my see. My CD. You tell. That alone. Closes, the gap. But I think I'll. Tell you what? Championship is nature shapes. Why isn't it ironic that something else we don't talk about? Both guys were almost killed. Both guys both guys were Paul. Pierce was stabbed multiple times. David Ortiz was shot in the back. I don't think. He's really made that connection between those two finding about players and you go. Wow, even more of a connection when you think about what they went through, Paul peers even more, so it happened during the prime of his career David Ortiz he had been displaying already, but Paul Pierce s another thing that they give him. The props for is that he went through this gin stab and came out of that and you know became the player you know, and people are longtime talk about trading Paul Pierce and Paul Pierce. Do this and Paul and that he wasn't busy, wasn't and Paul Pierce was. Apart of that championship era. As Gar, net and now so so that's why I think I'd go with Paul Pierce before you know even now go before big property yet because I love Paul Story obviously the underdog story not. Law for him I mean Shit from the beginning right. He was projected to be number two. Overall pick. He's data tens of the surface of pig on so he sort of had a chip on his shoulder from the Celtics. We're looking at the draft board thinking. What is wrong with peers? Is there something wrong here and Paul Pierce? Came back and say I'M GONNA. Make people pay for not picking me. A sack Lee. Which team was selected to pick who got elected. He uses yellow. The players names like tractor trailer Larry. Hugues Michael Candy the number. One overall hit that year he knew imagine being falls of I. Love That obviously about Paul that story that energy, but then also like you said to three Tuesday opposite this guided. Shut this thing down. Go get another. The superstar ability to draft again traded away Paul was. And there were there was Paul Pierce. Hall here's was Selfish Player, he could get his numbers. He can score, but he wasn't a winner. Right and that wasn't true for the day Paul. Pierce step on the floor. Paul Pierce was a winner and you remember for a while. He was like leading the League in steals. He was an unreal you was to. His rookie year was was crazy Washington. Put and you think of the combination him and Antoine Walker together to say you're talking about manny and big PAPI together as same kind of the same kind of Vibe, you think about of excitement, definitely no to after shacking Colby, nor the duo average more points Nasdaq. Though they were, they will crazy man also I don't forget what I used to the city man while Paul Pierce. Goes Out, and just you know whatever he wants, and it's like every play has to go through that maturation face and I. I just think that's what I don't think every player. Does I think that imposed case? It was so out there he will go in clubs. He would big time he would do these days. And then when he got stabbed, he grew up. He grew up and he got married. He took more responsibility in in. He became the captain of this team took more responsibility. That's why I think I'm GONNA go with. Paul Pierce over David Ortiz. Might have to do the same thing. Man I don't know I'm torn. I'm torn. I'm flipping right now. Because in the beginning I was thinking Ortiz. Then I'm thinking about Paul Story before we start recording and I'm just like a man that just embodies everything I love about sports man that underdog story at turn something into nothing you know, and you know what? What else another thing I wanted to bring up when K. came and Ray Allen. King Postal Leave the team store and Paul Guy to get the ball at the end of the Games and it was just like okay now from a national standpoint. Everyone seeing what I've been seen since they won like Paul was always that clutch guy one of the top. Guys you've ever seen. A recent history. Do you think you'd like? You said you could think another thing that comes up to is. Who are you villains. and Ortiz's case. His villains. Were the Yankees. Paul Pierce Villains where a lot of guys Kobe. Love wrong to the best players in the league who do best players play the game here? You are those. Yes, so so. That's what I'm thinking that even when dad? And, that's another thing you talk about David Ortiz Great oppossimilar defense. Man He didn't make the position. Look. I'm just saying we just say obvious. Deep isn't and I'm not killing poppy. Got His book here my on My. My table here. My living room so I I can't. I can't cannot say. Bad things about. You know you're right. Yeah, I'm not forget that, so there's like two weeks I think after he won the championship Paul was overseas somewhere and it's a reporter over there goes. Hey, Paul Man. WHO's a this ongoing debate? You know I want to ask you what you buys A. Man Who, who's the best player in the NBA is Kobe, Bryant, or is it Lebron James and goes on the best player in the NBA. Just beat those guys. Classic Focus Come on man when you on top of the hill got stuck there you go. Because you. Don't forget those moments where everyone. There you. Go. All right. That's it there you go. Those are the toughest ones, and you know what guys if you have another one that you think. We missed a really good one that you want us to talk about Leszno, hit up on on twitter. Of course you can inbox us well or tweet at US tweet at Max, tweet at me as well. Joe Sway. On twitter Max you been everything good everything's good burke and through this quarantine lying around just sit in the house. And you and I are probably maybe about five and five and a half feet away from each other, but we are not. Yes, that you know. We think we're cool right now, but People I've seen. Every time we do.

Dan Patrick show made it to Thursday. Who would have thought we already got our first controversial topic here about two minutes ago? I got the Danettes screaming at each other over there. What's the problem here? You got your arms in the air. You guys are all demonstrative right. We'll we'll get to that topic whatever it is. I don't know what they were arguing about a big PAPI. David Ortiz will join us in about fifteen minutes. Kirk cousins from Vikings. We'll stop by Dak Prescott of the Dallas cowboys to a talk of the Alabama QB and Derrick Henry of the Tennessee. Titans you like get in touch with the program once again I caution you. I don't know if Mario intuitive or even listening to the show that they work on but eight seven seven three. DP show email address. That's Deepak Dan Patrick Dunk on twitter. Handle DP show say good morning to our great radio in TV partners and our great studio audience. That's here joining us. That's where you get to getting free tickets all right. So what's the problem over there Paulie. I guess I'll go first. We're we're just We have a couple of TV's vs over here with different shows that we watch we all watch each other shows before shows are on and I thought seating life thought he got hurt. I thought he was eating something. That didn't agree agree with them. And and then there's a topic on screen and we can't hear the show and I can't tell you what show it is but it it occurs. Get up in the morning encouraging to get up okay. The no names in the topic on the screen was if Patrick Mahomes in the chiefs win the Super Bowl is Patrick mahomes now in his conversation for the greatest quarterback of all time time goats. Oh yeah man. We're desperate for a super bowl topic. Aren't we who wants to go. First on this mclovin you being the football expert here. I'd like hyperbole questions. I like ridiculous questions. I like all time debates. This one's way way too soon but you said something the other other day you said Mahomes is GonNa be in the conversation with Aaron Rodgers. Has the most talented passing quarterback. We've seen maybe the ever but talent is a character trait or characteristic but doesn't mean you're you've you've won anything. You really talented. Will you see quarterback Aaron. Rogers is ahead of Tom. Brady we've seen that for years now. Well Chris Simms has that once again he talks about. WHO's the most talented quarterback not the most accomplished on pushed quarterback? Would you rather. Okay let me ask you. would you rather be Aaron Rogers or Tom Brady. I'd rather be Tom Brady. Okay six I think air rogers his more talented quarterback probably okay. It's probably close but doesn't even make it a more of a glaring void or omission in that he's only got one super. He's the most talented quarterback. Now you only have one you know Brady might be not that talented. But he's still got six sure. Does I mean are we underestimating Tom. Brady's talent I mean. Maybe Tom Brady's more talented than Patrick Rome's let you know. I brought us away from home. Whatever you guys were mad about mahomes is a really talented quarterback I just? I know that having been around Dan Marino. Many many times I've known for a long long time. No matter where goes. He'll always here that you didn't super bowl. He's talented as any quarterback and he was ahead of most of these quarterbacks with his spread offense and being able to you. You know sitting a gun and you don't have any super bowls. I just want to these guys who were so good. I hope they get their super bowl like Russell. Wilson may not win another one. But he's he's a great. He's going to the hall of fame. He got that one super bowl. I think it's just a chance to exile here with a lot of these quarterbacks and Patrick Mahomes I would hate for him to go oh through his career without winning a super bowl if he's talented. Yes he like. Andrew had said before the show while we're having this conversation that this topic is pure twenty. Twenty twenty right. It couldn't be it's exactly made for the day and age that we're in right now and is part of that because we allow for some reason multiple people to be the greatest of all time displayed. It it actually has to be a singular person but we treat greatest of all time like a Mount Rushmore. There could be five greatest of all time. Yes that's exactly Equa. Drives me crazy the concept of great of all time is singular. Muhammed Ali is the greatest. It wasn't like you know he was the greatest spinks was also. You know that doesn't work that way you you know the great one is what Wayne Gretzky if you say the greatest it's extremely singular but the goat term gets thrown around but the thing is if Patrick Mahomes wins Super Bowl. Is he the greatest quarterback of all time is one of the Dahmer sports arguments. I've ever seen put forth because even if he wins it and throw six touchdowns at the MVP his sample size. He's played thirty eighty one. NFL game says but at the thirty one greatest games ever played. Apparently if you made the case that he's yeah but isn't this just hot takes central like this is what this business has has become like a cow. We gotta slap something up on the wall. What what are we going to slap up there today? Would if Mahomes wins the super bowl is the greatest of all time question mark. That's where we are if you twisted and said if Mahomes win the Super Bowl is this the greatest start of any. NFL quarterback career sure. Then you got Marino we know and then you've got a couple of other guys you can make the case that he's having the greatest start of a career but not greatest of all time. That's like a past tense. How old was Brady when he won his first? It was in a second season. Go now he didn't. He wasn't decorated away. Mahomes was he didn't have an MVP and he wasn't putting fifty touchdowns so it's different but you know he. He did get in their early. And then you know kept winning many had sort of had that donut where he had super bowls super bowls and then in the middle didn't have anything. Yes Todd I don't know how someone when does just getting started. especially if you have someone that's got as many rings as Brady has had that could even come up and be uttered like on live national TV radio. That's or that would even be a conversation at all. It's going to be several several years before you can even have a go-to conversation with home. Yeah go get him. Todd you take that get up get up get out yes mccan the heck. I could actually make this argument even the more knowing and I know I mean you can't ignore the fact that Andy Reid is coach and he's got like the Fastest Wide Receiving Corps in twenty years. I mean if he was the quarterback for the Jaguars right now he wouldn't even be in a good of all time conversation. He's in the right place at the right time how. `Bout we go with is Mahomes overrated. Is he the most overrated quarterback of all time question mark. I actually believe I got an remember like I always go. I'm like I don't know that. Alex Smith of lead this team positively. No no no. No no Alex Alex Smith could not have let him back from twenty four down no but they might not have been down twenty four. Nothing of Alex Smith was team. Divas like we better step up. Alex third quarterback. Wow Wow that'd be they. Were really good with Alex Smith to really I don't they weren't there was a fella and chiefs hat right over here then you should yeah. He just sat there with his eyes closed shaking his head. He wants to return is he wants to return free tickets to the show. He'd like to leave now. I I think he wants to go to get up and see my Greenberg with their topic by the way we have stupid topics as well so if this was one that I could just see where the dentist go. They're they're reading it. They're going because they always had that little line there at the bottom. You know give you. The topic are you know could be Patrick. Mahomes be now. He'd be in the conversation of great great young quarterbacks or start to a great career. That's fine there's no argument the thing is is there's no passion there's no. Nobody's going to be arguing. That what you want when when you have these shows where you gotta have a topic and then one guy agrees with one guy disagrees. Nobody's GONNA disagree with that so if it is a question that Paulie brought up just before the show. If Patrick Mahomes was to retire they win the super bowl and he was never tire immediately after that game. Is he a hall of Famer. No Oh no his ator. The greatest sort of all time would be would be. Oh God career there's circle. What's the poll question? Patrick Mahomes your career if you think this is bad the other big conversation pre show the progression is is leisure. Zoom the coolest unit nickname of all time because I've fritzy areas going three Amigos and we got another side topic was well the chiefs wide. Receiving core is known as the League. Legion of Zoom. Right there like the offense legion of boom. Yeah they they might be the fastest group of wide receivers to step on the field. Legion of boom though was pretty good there was doomsday defense. The steel curtain was also in there. Three Amigos come on and none of those guys even made the pro bowl. Let me tell you something. Max Advanced Johnson and ricky were. They actually have friends nor Spanish. Spanish Spanish. They legally shouldn't just call them three friends instead. I got some other teammates. All right what are your greatest show on turf but I. This is my favorite purple people eaters. That is the most awesome nickname ever. They literally do that. Though they never eight eight people did not and then of course born Miami the killer bees. I was good. I was GONNA say the no name defense. I don't remember what no-name and then the killer. Bees was that by the way that undefeated. Miami Fernandez Yeah. You look back at that undefeated Miami Team Satori of Miami. Wait are we gonna now greatest team of or the chiefs Super Bowl. They better than the nineteen seventy two. I am rooting for somebody to go undefeated and win the Super Bowl. So I don't see the champagne toast anymore with the dolphins. We're in Miami me you know I know but there's no dolphin fans they don't show their faces right not all. There's one we got one Dolphin Fan. WHO's here and he's not even wearing white white black? There's one but that's gotTa Dan Marino Jersey. Yeah step into the twenty twenties right now. Here with Your Dolphins David Sell Ryan Jerseys. I don't even know Pennington Jersey. Somebody that around here by the way our artwork today today is Dan Marino street artists to did a wonderful job on short notice with the Kobe painting yesterday. And we got one more iconic Miami Miami sports rated related figure tomorrow. And that'll be dwayne Wade but Dan Marino today and one of my favorites really a guy who changed the physician position. We talk about Peyton Manning. Dan Marino did that prior to Peyton manning all right we're going to settle on a poll question or are we just going to complain about other shows today. Yeah I think we have to put up his asking asking if the conversation a fair question I have one more no. It's not a fair question. I'm going to answer for America. That's he's a wonderfully talented quarterback. Okay I don't know if there's a poll question but just a general question which you go over or under on fifty four and a half. I'm asking for a friend for Sunday. Let's decide which way we should bet on this. That's okay pauly. Put Down his betty. Yesterday he talked to a bookie in Uganda spent. I got fifty on on a par with the niners to win outright and remote start to be the MVP at twelve to one. I can't do the math. I think that's a lot of money. Sounds like you'd make some serious coin. There well seventy percent of the cash coming in on the over so far which tells you raise it tells you to go up. Oh I know everybody's saying this is going to be a track. Give me some accident owes there. Tell me about the what is the over the four and a half for Super Bowl fifty four people and everyone's betting on the chief chief steward and all the experts are picking the chiefs. Yeah like not. Although but like seventy percent of the experts I talk on all the major sites chiefs chiefs. Does that make you nervous. I know you have yeah I would have. I WANNA have less members of the media agreed with me then. More members of the media agreed with me but I like the chiefs. I think the niners are better team all all around better team but it comes down to Patrick mahomes greatest of all time question mark leading the chiefs to a super bowl all right eight seven seven three.

The home runs by designated hitter. Which means he couldn't play the field? He had a winter home runs. That sounds like a lot. That's just the tip of the iceberg for reasons since this man will never ever have to buy a drink in the city of Boston again. Please welcome big PAPI David Ortiz. Yeah you're right. They're looking good man. I am the worst series. I have no choice. Did you ever play football. Did you ever WANNA play football. Look man back into the mannequin. Yeah Yeah back in my days.

So you basically was watching Michael Jordan and it was my man recipes. Kobe Bryant did you get to meet Michael or Kobe. Yeah I got both of them. What was it like? It was like a drink to be honest with you. It was it was. It was something that I make a May your impact on myself when I mean Michael and then Colby and then magic remember My last season plane. We went to dodger stadium and Magic here I wanted to sign on for me. And he's saying you sent Me Basketball Jersey sign autographs. We everything everything they will he play. It was very special. MJ Jay when I I mean I basically told her name man you know what because of you. I almost The baseball player who was like why and I was like because I want to be like you. Everybody WanNa be like Mike. You know what I'm saying and then Kobe when I first makeover manny was like he was a kid when you see the ice cream Because he he was expressing like like the way he handled himself. And then you you watch it on the core Doing what he do you know and everything related to it was very special. You know I want to take this moment to you. Know y NASA his wife and his kids his family man Dan. You know we praying for your way. We tried to keep it. Together I wasn't at the mannequin when I heard the news I wasn't my family and it was. It was something that I have made. Major impact worldwide. You know somebody like him he's beautiful daughter gee-gee and those older a members of different family. That were there with them. You know something a definitely. All of us are suffering. You know talking to David Ortiz. He's how you feel about the way I feel great man you know like back throw more on back to my regular thing barking out you know. BBC You know. I've been all over the place. Do you know why you were shot Really talk much about it because it's one of the investigation. Asian steel by the most important thing. Is that everything is going well. You know I'm I'm a few good and healthy. You know everything thinnest moving along pretty well so though good. Have you watch the video before I did not anymore. No no no no no no. I didn't know you like you said you stop watching it. They'll yeah yeah I mean something like out there plenty of time for a minute you know so you don't want to you know. Continue Building that trauma. No yeah you know and the US US moral on and you had. That is worried as worry. I'm sure he were weren't sure you really. It was crazy crazy. Things happen and you got to move on. What kind of diamonds we got there? You got the ring you gotta the rules. Assume they were ruins. That wasn't my next question. Time was house. I got four rings on my house. Okay okay actually. I got one eighteen. Got One I got one. What do you think the appropriate it penalty penalty should have been the act for the Astros? Well to be honest with you I don I think you know the game supposed to be play. You know the right way Oldest technology in all this thing has been added to the game. I think it's good but I say nine you know allow you to. I guess do things differently just like happened so I know I'm GonNa GonNa do the right thing and we'll be. It's very professional in his very Ever be made sure always the fans are certifies vice. Yeah we'd decisions so I think they already started securing things that way. Yeah it's it's tough because you I want to believe that what you're seeing is real and then there's a part of the game that you're trying to get an edge you're trying to like did you care if I knew what the pitch was and I could tell you what the pitch hitch was. Would you want them to be honest with you. We found hitting force hit a mile. But poppy you have players. Who will tell you? I'd rather not know the kitchen. I'm going I'd like to know if it's a fast bowler chance take. You would've let me tell you when you say somebody like Pedro have five different pitches all of the gray all of them. Good when you're hitting your thinking in your mind what is he going to throw me ninety seven or he got thrown me eighty two. What is he going to throw me a toll six or you're going to throw me a quarter of ninety four like that is what is going on in your mind now? If I know that he gonNa Throw me break in bowl I'm going to slow myself so down and boom because I know what it's coming you know what I'm saying baseball. We are allowed to try to figure it out when the guys in when a guy's making a mold to throw this pitch a Lotta guys does that. I mean a lot of teachers. They had to work in a mechanic annex so much so here we don't figured out what is coming now and other hand technically The way things were going on from what we see that is a whole totally different. Yes because now you have a camera that he's staying in Cigna's and guys are banging on this is it's not right. How often do you go to the plate? Trying to hit a home homerun ninety five percent of the time. Ten percent of the time it happened with the other eighty eighty eighty five. You know like more lightly never happened. I learned one time. We're having a conversation with you. And Tommy asking the same question in my younger days when I was in Minnesota and he told me poppy look all. I tried to let the ball travel deep and tried to put my the best swing on. It doesn't matter where I go. I normally strong enough to be able to hit. The ball is the whole field the ball so I just just want to let the ball trouble deep and then I was like that was when things start making sense to me. We're talking to David Ortiz. Big PAPI joining us here gave you the nickname. How how long have you been called big PAPI being awhile? Awhile qualify to Boston those when somebody Sir because I I'm terrible names like I can remember. I can't even remember my own man sometimes and I I just poppy everybody so produce but it was.

There aren't many guys that I've stood next to where I go. He's bigger than what I like like you think now shack still and I've been around Shack for twenty five years or maybe even longer thirty years. He's still you still. He's the biggest man on the planet. It feels like when you're shocked. He's larger than he appears to be and poppy is bigger. Because he's listed six four. He looks like he's about six four to seventy five and I. I wouldn't want to try to sneak a fastball. By Him. Yes it's not just the size of certain presence about people beyond their height and weight. We're just recognizing it's like wow poppies walking into the room and you stop percent. I was pretty fired up. I'm a cubs fan but I've always liked poppy. I think he's maybe even underrated and I remember number remember. We did the the Yankees Red Sox in two thousand four is one of the weekends every game and we were underneath the stadium before game seven and all the Latin American American workers at Yankee Stadium. They root for Latin American ballplayers. They were I was told and so big PAPI has to bats in. His hand is stretching out in the catacombs of Yankee Stadium before game seven seven to get to the world series. And they're all yelling. Poppy that you got this adamant Spanish. They're saying in Spanish. You got this. You got this and he goes to drink key though poppies got this take walks out in the field. That man is bad. Ortiz is one of four players in baseball history. Five hundred home runs and six hundred doubles. I think drafted by Seattle ended up with the twins and the twins released him. I don't think he was traded to Boston. Then he goes to Boston and then all of a sudden now re helps rewrite history St. I like that Boston accent. I liked it. He had a sense of humor. Why go if I close my eyes and you have that? I feel like I'm talking to somebody from Boston. Noma Paktika Lotta Fun. Did you settle on a poll question. They're mclovin we're not doing. The Patrick Mahomes. Greatest of all time are now big topic yesterday. GOODELL's press conference. If you're a player would you wanNA play seventeen games if it meant incrementally more money if you you are an NFL player. I think I think most of the Dannettes have a strong not a strong opinion but I have an opinion opinion which way they lean. Is Anybody strong against an extra game in the regular season with you guys know well if you're the NFL you can't be preaching safety safety. I hear and then all of a sudden say because I think they value that one extra week at a billion dollars and are you going to add another bye week here. I you think they might extend the regular season and not maybe maybe not add that seventeenth game. But I think there's they know the players association is mixed you got two different sides inside that players association on. Do you have an extra game here. What are you get as a player is? They're going to be an extra wildcard. Berthier because you can't get to week sixteen seventeen and go. These games. Don't mean anything and then you're asking fans to pay full ticket price for something where you're watching a second or third stream player fair play quarterback Yancey. I'm definitely not against extending the regular season. especially if it means the players get more money but what I really don't want is another night of football i. I don't want like Wednesday night football. You know I think if you're if you're spreading it out over the week and all of that the there's GonNa be the think of how long it took to get Thursday night football up to like. Oh Yeah every single game doesn't stink. You know what I mean. Well the reason why is they improve the schedule because Fox pending. It's it's interesting that if you spend more money somehow your schedule looks a little bit better there. I still don't like Thursday night football I mean I I like that. There's football on. I just don't think it's fair to these players to play Sunday and then turn around doc and then play Thursday on the road. I don't think it's fair to him. Yeah neglect logistics aside. Though don't you guys get a little depressed on Tuesdays. When it's you have great Monday Sunday time? I'm to spend with my family the get to know my children again. Hi I'm your dad. You are. Yeah that's with Tuesday's are for. That's what Wednesdays four where you put it like that. Let's definitely have a Tuesday or hurt. But that's why I love Mac action. I like when they put a game on Tuesday Tuesday or Wednesday. You'll watch back. I know I but you've got to be fair to these play. I promise you mclovin. If everybody got a chance to see a game at field level and listen to a game at field level in real time real speed you would have a completely different view of that sport. It's so so violent TV makes it seem like like they're they're fast but not that fat. Watch a game from the sidelines. Just listen to the crashes in it is. It's far more violent that you would think and then you're saying hey we want you you guys to play an extra game here. It's hard enough. How many teams had their quarterback play all sixteen games this year during the regular season? And we're protecting these quarter. We're we're going out of our way to protect them. I don't know if you can do much more than what we've done. Yeah I think if I'm a star player who makes a whole lot of money and has a long career. I don't WanNA longer schedule edge open. I'm a backup linebacker on the seahawks and I maybe I'm trying to three or four years out of this. That means I get three extra game checks over the course of three years and that could be a big difference so if I'm a backup linebacker and there's a player vote. I'm voting for an extra games. There's also a topic today that well it's going to be making the rounds here pretty soon. Endure Kennedy is GONNA join US coming up in the final hour of the show. If you're Tennessee. Do you spend that money members a couple of years ago they spend all that money on DeMarco Murray. How did that go? If I'm Tennessee. I either have Tanna Hill and Henry back or neither one of them because Tannehill needs Henry. But do I want to spend that kind of money. On Derrick Henry fight can get Derrick Henry and I can tag him you know. What is it? Eleven million dollars for a running back now lassen that last year. Yes I would do that for two years because I just at that position. I don't want to spend a lot of money on his second contract there. The Dolphin search place. Pittsburgh Pittsburgh is a place maybe for Derrick Henry the Patriots possibility with Sony Michelle and the Tampa Bay buccaneers or just some of the teams that have been mentioned. Engine does maybe a landing spot for Derrick Henry. mclemore feels like the tag is really unfair to running backs possessive one position that wears the fast also they should be able to come out of softwares to I think I mean I don't know if very rarely does matter but that college wear and tear hurts it. Yeah that's the hard part when you because once again if I'm selfish as a coach and I'm in college alleged I have a great running back I'm GonNa load you up because I want to win and if I'm an NFL coach. If I'm Mike Gabel. What gives us the best chance of winning Derrick Henry running the ball all thirty five times? I don't want Ron Tannehill. Throw thirty two. I mean it's a similar situation with San Francisco. We already know what the sample sizes his with ten a hill. We sort of know who he is. We're still trying to figure that out with Garoppolo but the coaching staff in what they run Kinda tells you how they feel about Garoppolo. This is a work in in progress. At the titans. DECIDE TO FRANCHISE TAG Derrick Henry. It'll cost them just less than eleven million dollars for next season. That's what I would do. Now what is what would it be the second tag egg on Derek. Closer to twelve and a half get bumped up percentage wise. Still do that. Because he's twenty six. He's twenty twenty six but he's obviously not gonNA show up to Camp I mean he's this GonNa pull Melvin Gordon at the very least I didn't. It didn't work out well. They really help the charge. Yeah it well let me. I was okay. But the chargers season PSOMAS SORTA sidetrack bell was going to be arrested and boy. This is going to be something I mean got paid but I you know the jets. He's got a coach who doesn't want him and you know in today's NFL. I don't WanNa be given my running back sixteen million dollars. I just don't but Derrick Henry is going to have a decision to make well. Tennessee is going to have a decision to make wonderful year. But I just I don't know how long you can replicate that with a Tannahill and Derrick Henry. But it feels like they might be staying with Ryan Tannehill for sure and I think Mario to has a chance like you. See these guys who get that second chance because they've learned you get out of it a situation you go to another another situation. That might be a little better suited for you. I'd like to see an offensive coordinator. Tell Mariota let's pick up the temple little bit. Let's go back and watch your Oregon highlights here. Let's remember who that quarterback was because he was really really dangerous and obviously winning heisman. Trophy couple of quarterbacks coming up next hour we'll talk to kirk cousins into the Vikings in Prescott will join us also in the final hour to Tonga bi-lo and Derrick Henry. One hour the books two more to go on this Thursday Dan. Patrick show tell what's happening. Everybody this is the fiddle Lakers podcast. I'm your host Mike Trudell super pumped to be your flanked by earn the Laura Tool you ready to go. I'm ready. The Lakers will be a top ten defense. The team that has two stars or in this case Lebron in a d can sometimes other out. But I think they're both good candidates for the. I really like the way that this team just feels to be around the IT'S A. It's a very clear message. It's two stars in the broader ad and it's everybody also on board the relationship that is developing between those two off the court and on the port their cohesiveness on the court. I think in this case is a special case that the two of them will enhance each other. As opposed you taking away from each other. Be sure to rates.

Jerry Reccos Monday Morning Update

"Give you're watching us on CBS sports network this morning, divided. Notice something different at the very start in the show. I actually didn't pick up on it right away. Those concentrating on are very, very stacked open to the program, but the boomer and geo sign was off the front of the why was that? Well, see CNBC's got this big streaming production that they are putting together. Okay. They're going to video stream their show. But what they do in, in the course of video streaming, the show is deconstructed this studio. And they take the sign off the front because God forbid, you know, you could promote that at all right? God forbid, anybody would see that got Obama and they use when our studio. Right. Which is fine. It's everybody studio. But that's so they take that sign off. They leave it there. They don't put it back. And then when I walked in this morning, there's these rolling posters that they put up to block the other boomer and geo. Calm down. It's, it's fun. You want to do your thing, do you thing, but clean up afterwards yourself scary? On Chris to sports as former athlete. He's not doing bars. Not doing anything. He's not having signs or anything. Here's things done. Fran I get that whole thing. And plus, he's that kind of like that new generation athlete where he, he got you know, a zillion dollars to play the game. Sure he's not doing anything maggie's pregnant. Right. So everybody just got away. Don't just let Bank, he's not lifting signs lifting anything. Right. That other stuff. So, yeah, this is all on calling the way I look at it. I'll pull him out. Right. Oh my God. I tell you what. Yeah. So it just you know, police yourself. You wanna use the studio. That's fine. Right. Or I'll go with that. You know, you want to be here. You don't want to sign back. I know they don't want to go into the Mike francesa studio. That's what's all this whole thing's. All right, exactly. Get all that had to separate them. I have to separate them. It's a little tension. Imagine. If this was imagine of Mike had come into do his show and like his stuff was gone, and they would see paraphernalia apartment, baby. I mean, we're at least diplomatic about it say come on next time, make sure you put everything back pleased. That's what we're saying. That would be a buckle up moment. Oh, by the way, speaking of buckling up, you know, I don't know if you've got sauve this what happened to me day. So I'm traveling back from San Diego. And I go through security. I am a TSA pre check guys. You're, of course, I got TSA pre check. I'm good. And when you go through San Diego security, they hand you a Prius TSA pre check little like. I guess pass. Okay. So when you get there, you don't have to take your shoes off. You don't have to take your hat off. You just go walk in. It's all great. Right. Go right. Through goes, stop a Mike for what she goes route, you've been randomly select, I said, I'm, I'm TSA pre check what do you mean? I'm randomly randomly. But I, I have a TSA pre check, so I don't have to be randomly selected for anything. My card here by randomly selected. So I'm like, okay, so I go over to the thing you got to stand on that little Matt, with the two feet on it. Right. So you stand on that, Matt, and some old guy comes over me, it's got to be in the seventies, okay? We got to create TSA groin. Check growing. Growing growing shackling chick. What are you talking about? What am I Joe DiMaggio here? Gosh. Huge package or something. So he comes over. He's got his gloves on reach around. With the back of his hand. It was a direct grab back of his hand. Yeah. He's he won't go goes, right? Over me twice right over your junk twice back of his hand like like this like hat. Like or did he tap it out? We have gloves back there. Don't we have? We don't have those gloves. Show you how we did it. But. Well happened to him before. So he goes to goes, first of all, he goes inside my, my belt. Right. I've seen in my belt all the way around to my back. Okay. And then he and he goes, okay? Now, now, now the frontal broin area like frontal groin area. For what? Yeah. Got talk. That he goes across this way with the back of his head. And then he goes back the other way with how a little double dip. I got a little double dip. But I gotta tell you, it tickled. I was I didn't know how to process that. I really didn't I didn't know how I was like this, because it's the first time it ever happened. Yeah. And plus I was TSA pre checked. Oh, you know, you got singled out because that guy wanted to feel your jump. And then and then people give it to me, baby. People on Twitter were telling me all they have this whole thing about, you know, tagging celebrities. Oh, yeah. Without a doubt. So I got tagged, you, did you got tagged the high seventy years old man. I can't believe tag me move there from Cincinnati, San Diego working for TSA in his retirement. I'm telling you, but it's got to be something for him. The recognize me or action. The woman who stopped me, was anybody videoing it on their phone. I have no idea didn't see it. So. It was just like man finger the circle. I just felt like I was violated. Yeah. I know I've listened that happened to me. Why never had TSA pre? Never heard of growing check before they said that a groin check one check they actually verbalize that you said growing check you said he said, TSA growing check thing. What is that? The one thing I have noticed that, you know, you would think that the TSA is like McDonald's. Right. So wherever you go. They're all going to be doing the same thing. You would think they don't all do the same thing everywhere is different. There's no there's like, I would say ninety five percent uniformity, and then the other five percent is like whatever they want. But. That guy somewhere is smoking a cigar was last night, telling the story. Oh, yeah. I hit, boomer with the TSA growing check. Get some every time does go sounds stupid, but, you know, it high school idiot, high school boys. Like I was one of at one time you go round and you back in. Right. Yeah. That, that, that guy that was like that. That's what it was like I was waiting for him to do that. I've actually had my prostate check. Many a time that was a that was a staple. The other one that I loved is when one guy would just he'd get down behind another guy who you wouldn't be able to see him which is on hand and knees. And you push him over and he full-back over the guy who was behind his knees. Yeah. That way. Of course. That's another. Then the other thing you know what? What's amazing when you when you're flying back to New York? So it's all New Yorkers most mostly all New Yorkers getting on the plane, right? And everybody's gotta get be first on the plane. No matter no matter any sense. No matter what zone. They're loading. Gotta be first on the plane. And how many times it's like getting deed in the in the ez pass for the drive through. Yeah. Right. So there's a guy that goes up to the front line. We're not loading zone. Your zone three reloading. I love when boomers with the common people always come back when the store, this is out of the starting blocks with the Houston bolt zone. One. And it's like fifty fifty people show up because everybody's got to have three bags on the airplanes. Sure that's another. That's a bad thing. Al. How many bags do you travel with when you go on the airplane? I check a bag. I carry one small bag that I can always fit under the seat, because I don't want the pressure of having to get on the plane fast and get an overhead bin. So way to do it. The only way to do it again. I know some people have medical stuff that they have to carry with them. I get all that. Appreciate that. But like if you're checking bags right, wanted, just check all the bags you know, why, why carry on three bags and check to bag because they charge you bag out with that. And speaking from a personal asked to carry a lot of crap with me. Yeah. You regret. Rather hold onto it, then have it possibly. Yes. So I know. And usually, when governor flies he has tag on his bag, and they understand it. And it's great and they take care of them. They, he never has any problem, you know, I wouldn't think you would have any problem either. Well, the insulin pump make speak. I get cut McGraw and all the time. Yeah. Every single time free check on pre check. Also does not matter. Well, I don't I don't have an insulin pump. But I don't know what it was got a package in the Cup. Whatever checked out. All right. Jerry is here with. Jerry by NYU Winthrop hospital, cyber knife treatment centers in Manhattan and Long Island, what you guys open the show with David Ortiz out of surgery. He was shot in the back in the Dominican Republic. And this was early evening last night at a bar in Santo Domingo. His dad says he will be okay. Didn't have any vital organs so out of surgery. So that is good news for David Ortiz, too crazy story out of the D R, meantime, the Red Sox did lose the race Sunday, six to one at that matters. But yet David Ortiz, I guess we'll be okay. Baseball Sunday Yankees now and a tie. First place with the raise now at forty and twenty four and they needed to beat the Indians to stay there. And it got a little dicey. They led five nothing then the game was tied five five. They reclaim the lead in the Indians would get the game, even again in the bottom of the nine and the ones who it on the ground short. Those Bill Ramirez, the time run the other one is the second and third. We're all tied at six John said there he blew CT it. Yeah. That's what I j bloop. Dick, the what is going on here. Wanted to say that, but he said bloop, bloop. Yeah. So that made it six six that said in the tenth, they get a big base it from Aaron Hex. You'll one swung on online at love field. It has got to be over the head of Luke blow one hop. Both the left centerfield wall on the second goes Hicks Aaron Hicks. They drills wanna Lupton, the Yankees, take a seven six lead is John sterling again on the phone. Zoe, even Tarpley would strike out the side and the bottom half for the save yicky wanna beat in the Indians in ten seven six not the best of games. But in the end a win is a win is a win. Here was Hicks talking about the at bat for the go ahead base at a great day at the plate. But big they're their last ending. How's it looking for something to hit some drive? Get a fastball zone and. Hey, well, here you gotta you gotta you gotta appreciate Brett Gardner going as Dana char imitation. Right now, the other night, you got the stitches in the mouth from slamming the helmet, the wall. And then getting hit back in the face the helmet. I know unfortunate. But then he was out there playing hit a home. Run yesterday. Tough guy right there. Yeah. They put a little like tape up and wrote caution next to it. Boston is jobs about it. It was pretty funny. I mean it just it's totally unfortunate to pounce back, right? Back into the face. And then he's got act like a tough guy walking past it, right? Yeah. He's got his all damn. Everybody starting to the left. It looked to his credit. He got the stitches in one right back into the game. That's gotta love. It's a man right there. That's baseball. Parks out for two weeks got up to a met player. What, what do you think would be down in port Saint Lucie the next day? And by the way, did you did you see some of the stories about Troy tool Lewinsky about? Give them off it just like put him on ice. And he's gotta think things through in think things out or something. Right. Because look in we're loaded. We don't we don't need you, so, yeah, thanks timing. Armand by the way, did go on the isle Sunday with a hip flexor strain Yankees Mets tonight. Masahiro Tanaka Jason Vargas. The starters on the fan at six twenty five as for the Mets. Todd Frazier continues to swing a hot baggers the two. Oh, that's Paul hip deep to left field, that goes tapioca track there. She goes. Todd Frazier with a three run Homer, how he rose on WCBS eight eighty made it three nothing early. He would tack on with an RBI double in the fifth, and Noah Syndergaard tremendous must beat the rocky six one take two of three over the weekend. Here's Frazier on their starting pitcher. We'll give prison single pitch a hell of a game. And on cruise control ever since the first one here's Mickey Calloway for Syndergaard. He was so good. Just one hit allowed a wildly seven innings heat worked so hard even though he gave up one run. He covering. I really took it out of, and it was done what covering? Aznar casting Idaho. There were a lot of plays where he had to cover the Dow, he was kidding. Like he must've said that what a smile now. A professional athlete Ed playoff baseball yesterday. So I detected see this game. I read the game recap from everything. I'm reading on a place. It's not Bartolo for that sake. He's an athlete, you just told me he looks like a donnas with Jerry doesn't. He looks so hard even though he gave one run. Covering. I really took it out of them online. Come on. You can't even if you believe that you cannot verbalize that you can't even if you deep down believe that you can't say that over and I just funny. The. Given valley. I love Mickey man just wants to make sure everybody realizes. Why did what he did? And. Yeah. Buddies loved and everybody's appreciated took it ad. It's a long road. Ronin bringing together. He did pitch really well though. I mean the good old. I think we can agree with that. Yes. But yes. So it's, it's it was interesting. Anyway, the Mets won. And that's the that's the most important thing for met fans. There are thirty two and thirty three as they go into this two game series with the Angie's. The problem is they have been horrific on the road. They just went four and two on the homestand. They've been really good at home. Goni stated really on the road, really you're on. Yeah, I think it caught in some traffic or something like that back about you very possibly also the reds did beat the Phillies four three dodgers over the giants. One, nothing more on that game coming up next our Bruins beat the blues five to one Stanley Cup. Find even. And did I see a Saint Louis newspaper posted blue? St Louis dispatch, is that what it was. Well, that didn't go so well for them last night, they did not win on home ice. And I guess this is Wednesday night in Boston. Now you guys see the whole before the game. Yes. Which which looks better than the audio is, if you see him he looks stoned drunk, but he was having a good old time grow. I could smell the out on his breath through the television boy to caress was awesome. Again, last night baby so game seven yeah, they're gonna man they're going to rue the day. The think about this. The blues say they six at home to win the Cup. Also leaked out that the blues head rented out. I guess some rooftop restaurant or something. Blew themselves not the team did. Oh, god. Not the players Eam. Yup. Can't do that. That's not a good thing touching the money boys tonight in Toronto game five NBA finals raptors up three one. Kevin durant. Did practice Sunday? He is listed as questionable. Steve Kerr did say he got through practice. Okay. He would likely play. So we will see if he plays tonight, because they lose it is over and in golf, Rory mcilroy, fine around sixty one wins the Canadian Open this week, US open from Appleby that's going to be awesome. Yeah. It's going to be a lot of fun, and then right after that, rents a travelers. So maybe the winner of the US open will sit down with us. Could it be Brooks kept three times in a row? Very well. Good b?

David Ortiz is one of the most celebrated and beloved members of the Red Sox family on behalf of our entire organization. Our thoughts and our prayers are with David, Eddie Romero. Who's the Red Sox executive vice president of international scouting talked about how important teases and the Dominican Republic he is the guy in the Dominican Republic. You know, he's, he's more famous than any president, you know, like people think of Dominican Republic, they think David Ortiz think Pedro Martinez, and that's coming from somebody who's been exposed to mimic, and over the years. I've been awed by the impact that he has. I mean, just going to a restaurant Ernie presents. He has everybody loves him and he's just that guy. But he it comes from the way he treats people, he treats everybody the same which is incredible. I know that the country itself has been stirred by this incident. And it doesn't surprise me that. How many people have reached out already trying to help in the president is the ex-president was there as you mentioned earlier? So I it's been an outpouring of support for him. Victor CANDU ABC news. Correspondent was on sports with Kevin Gandhi talking about the case. Well, right now, there is one suspect in custody twenty five year olds Eddie, Felice Garcia, and police say that he has to confess participating in this somehow, but he was in such bad shape that he wasn't able to tell police anymore. We know that when he tried leaving that nightclub last night, the people who were there, apparently beat him so badly, he himself had to be taken to the hospital before being taken into police custody at this point, though, it's unclear if he was the shooter, or if he was an accomplice in this apparently he was under the influence of alcohol. Police are waiting toxicology report here. He does have a criminal record for small drug trafficking charges. In a couple of minutes. We'll be talking with Marley Rivera VSBN about David Ortiz. She's up in Boston this morning at Fenway park last night, the Red Sox, and the Rangers tied three all bottom of the ninth inning, this happened for the Red Sox. They are for not. Popped up deep out into right field. Get the boy and he is out and what happened was Brock Holt ran through the stop sign if their base. Coach Andy Barr cat.

And he's not feeling good about it. The angels and the dodgers played last night might trout came through for the angels and the bottom of the seventh that is out toward left center field goal racing back to the track. Who? Yeah. The dodgers bullpen again struggling that in the bottom of the eighth inning. The angels had a chance to take the lead. There comes the two.

The angels go on to win this game five to three that sound from the angels television network in Atlanta.

I think it did it did grazed him that comes inside and catches, Josh Donaldson the Braves too on baseman. Josh gets into it into a verbal dispute with a pitcher must grow and bitches clear and here they go as the pirates in the Braves spill out onto the field. And there's a mob between the mount of the plate. Donaldson made it on a third way up the line gave a glance and a word or two out to Moscow. But that's all they needed to do here come the bullpens and the fuses lit and game one of this four game series now they're just in a little bit of a shoving match down there. No extra curricular activity continuing man, every Representative for both sides out there must grow being cleared all the way out towards third base. My his team pig Musco was walking in toward the home plate area after the hit batsman and look. At Donaldson Donaldson. Start walking up the first base line peeling off his armament, and he looked over and saw Musco coming in his direction and looking at him and Johnston said something along the lines of what are you looking at? Why are you coming over here as go saying, yeah, what are you looking at what are you looking at me for and walking in that direction? Josh shoved aside earliest the as the catcher like he was nothing and he and Josh bell were tangled. And by then they had shoved must grow all the way back to the magnet. Apac we have something brewing and are only in game one of this series. That sound from six eighty the fan the there's a lot that happened in that moment will be talking about that with David Schoenfield three folks, adrift did bolt Josh Donaldson. Joe musk Grover involved head to head and Clinton all the pirates manager jetted after he found out that must grove had been kicked out of the game as the game went along.

The Ron stores and the Rockies have taken the lead that from a fifty KOA Ryan McMahon with the game, winning single four Colorado in their sixty five win. Everybody around baseball was thinking about David Ortiz on Monday and today, we'll be talking with his former teammate David Ross plus Sara Lang's David Joan field. Let's get to it. Bali Rivera covers baseball for ESPN. And she and Enrica row Haas, or colleagues has been events such a phenomenal job of covering the story of David Ortiz being shot on Sunday. And then last night being transported to Boston via a private jet of the Boston Red Sox Marlee were standing there when his caravan pulled into Mass General, and I saw, he retweeting again this morning in front of Mass General a picture there. What's the latest? You've heard about his condition delayed. We, we haven't got an official medical data. We did have some access from sources inside his family who told us that the situation remains the same. Exactly, if the Red Sox stated that it's a serious situation but stable, he is not an intensive care unit, but he is in delicate condition, and in constant care. And at this point, we don't expect any more. They start later in the afternoon. His wife, Tiffany, a one of his daughters is with him as well as some cousins, and also his sisters. So just a group of the Ortiz family is currently at the hospital. He hasn't been clear to have a lot of visitors as you. Well know when someone is in such a delicate condition they preferred that there's not a outside visitors and we were speaking to some Red Sox players and, you know, current and former players who really wanted to go visit but they're just waiting for medical clearance. So at this point, he continues to be stable but still in a delicate condition now, you're so well connected and I was thinking about this yesterday. How you certainly yesterday. Making your calls sending out text sending out messages to people, but I'm guessing because you're so connected. You probably were getting a lot of questions for people around again, asking you what's going on? Yes, definitely. And of course, because after the statement comes from the Dominican police saying that it was not a robbery, which was the initial report actually coming from the Ortiz, family. We had spoken to David's dad. Leo'o Ortiz as the incidents were unfolding on Sunday night. And when the police says that obviously, all the speculation has started and that has been very difficult to deal with. And not only that a lot of people send you know, fans, and I have I opened my DM's when situations happened like this on Twitter and so on, so fans can send me information because this also can be a source and then you kind of have to go through all this messages and videos and information, and you really have to be very careful and as you well know, a buzzer, we have very high standards of vetting ESPN. So we really have to be very careful for the information. We gather and people keep asking me. You know why did this happen to David Ortiz? And my answer is I don't know there's a lot of speculation out there that this was a head and so on. But we certainly don't have any information on that, and we just simply don't know. Tell me about some of the players and folks in baseball who reached out to you trying to get information and it's just incredible. Just so many former players in the one of the most interesting conversations that I had with actually yesterday with one of the coaches of the Texas Rangers Hector Ortiz. Who's a Puerto Rican coach for the Rangers? And he told me that one of the interesting things that some former dodgers, who are Dominica's were actually hanging out with David earlier that evening. And they were all in a chat altogether that he's a part of, and he goes, and we were all chatting and exchanging these pictures and we're just talking. And then he goes in we'd land in Boston, and I seal this information, and I spoke also to Domingo Santana. The, the Texas Rangers leftfielder and through Norma Zara, and so on. And they were saying how they were just so shocked and Domingo, Santana told me that this particular bar and restaurant is entertainment areas, what they call, it is one of the safest into the mink and Republican, he lives, very close by there. He goes there, very often. And they'd just everyone is just so. Shocked about the situation and I it's been, you know, the words of Alex Cora were that he's a superhero without a Cape. Sam Kennedy was saying that bread socks Perth, and how much they love him data Martinez who grew up a Red Sox fan was talking about how he is. When you think of the Boston Red Sox, you identify them with big Papi and David Ortiz. And one interesting words for Mookie Betts people were asking him. What is your favorite memory of David Ortiz in one of the great quotes yesterday was, I'm not gonna talk to you about my favorite memory because David is not dead. Like we continually have to say, you know, we're wishing the best for him. That's why some people were criticized for calling the moment at Fenway park moment of. Silence. And it wasn't. It was a moment of reflection and prayer and sending good vibes today for, for a prompt recovery along those lines, a moment of reflection last question for you. Tell me about covering him in your time in journalism and the first time you met him and what's been like for you. So I have known David for close to fifteen. In years. And one of the things about Davis a person and, and, and, you know, this BUSTER, we, we deal with a lot of baseball players, and there's a lot of different personalities. Some are kinder than others. But one of the things that I found very telling was that yesterday and watching some covers not only on ESPN but, you know, on other networks, and especially on nothing. When people were talking about David not a single person mentioned, how many rings he has what is stats are coming home runs that he hit, and that is extraordinarily when a player when someone who is well known as a baseball player, and who he is. And we identified that no-one spoke about that. That is such a telling thing about David, and I'll give you my favorite David story about ten years ago. My father was very sick. He's actually a perfectly fine now by my father was very sick. And I was just telling David it was one of those conversations that you have with any player and I go, he's like, how's your father because he knows him? And I go, my dad has been very sick, and he goes, give me your phone and I said why, and he grabs the phone. And records an entire video from my father and it just it just completely shocked me that this he has this human side. You know, we're all very flawed person's. Right. And we certainly don't know why this happened to him but he had this incredible human side. And I feel he made you feel that he was your friend. It doesn't mean that he was my friend. I don't know that, you know, a lot of I think that he made you feel that you're the only person who was there with him made. You feel like he was your friend, and I really, you know, I think that it's such a telling it I have never met a baseball player who made me feel like that. So me about your dad's reaction when he saw the video. Oh, just in tears. It was just one of the greatest things David Thiessen, Latin, America's a hero, right? This is someone you know one of the greatest players of all time, certainly a hall of Famer future hall of Famer, and I think I would like to think that it was healing. Marley. I appreciate you doing this, because you so busy such great. Thanks again. I always have time for you and Josh BUSTER will be back in a moment with David Schoenfield. But I, I want to tell you about XL listen up guys if you're bigger tall, you know what a painted is to find clothes that fit. So a trip to DSL needs to be on your to do list at DSL big and tall is all they do. They've spent years developing their own sizing patterns to make sure big guys get a comfortable fit every time pair that with over one hundred brands and you've got the one stop shop for men's big and tall.

Well-considered show. Welcome to the show, welcome to ship. Show. Show. Welcome to the show. Maybe you're in the show with TV show and fees. You are the show. How you doing today? I'm good. But bustard jot are you? I'm good. Dave. Thank you for asking, right? So last night, they put on a show, Diamondbacks that Phillies, a record setting thirteen home runs. We got some play by play from that give us this day. Yeah. That, of course our old friend firm and doing the homerun derby, which is exactly what the Diamondbacks and Phillies game turned into last night. Just in keeping with the two thousand nineteen theme. So many home runs. I was looking at some of the numbers this morning. David Ortiz, the most homers he ever hit in any season, fifty four and two thousand six we got a bunch of players who have a chance to hit that more this year as of this morning we had fifteen players with eighteen or more homers in two thousand thirteen Dave one team hit more than two hundred homers one team out of thirty this year. Twenty two teams are on a pace to hit two hundred or more homers, look, you wrote a piece, it's on ESPN dot com. This morning where you're basically saying enough is enough. This is getting crazy. Yeah. I hate to be, you know, the old guy get off my lawn. What's wrong with baseball in two thousand nine? Nineteen, but I'm curious to see if you and Josh, we're gonna agree with me. Enough is enough. I mean the ball is a joke. Some of these swings at the ball's go four hundred feet, ten rows deep if getting a little ridiculous in last night's all time record. Thirteen home runs was just kind of the exclamation point for me on this season of the home, run when the signature played your game is no longer that exciting because it happens so often, maybe we have a problem here. Yeah. Did you see the obvious home run last night? The brave game. Yeah. It was unbelievable. He's a little listen. You know. I mean, he's got a lot more muscles in his sports writer, but he's got the size height of a sports writer. He flipped the ball last night. Where would he hit it? You're like, wow. Is that is that going to be a fly ball? The straight away centerfield in thing, just kept going, and going and going and going or even you know, the -nounce. The Braves game ship carry different core, like wow. That went out. Maybe it's not so surprising given what's going on. Yeah. There's one of those Sunday when the nationals hit four in a row at a meeting again not a home run hitter. Just look took a nice easy swing the boggles foreigner in two feet to center field drawer, Dyson last night for Arizona hit a fastball high in a way almost off the plate turned on it and hit it out to right field. I mean this guy is seventeen career home runs and he's turning on a high and outside fastball and hitting it three hundred sixty feet to right field he'd never done that before his career. Just all this happens every night. These swings were like how did that go out? But that's the state of baseball in two thousand nineteen year whenever we get an explosion of home runs, of course, reminds us of the classic Nike commercial from the nineteen right? Maddix Tom glavin watching Mark McGwire, take taking. Batting practice. You remember that one day given us? Xix. More home runs that you have in baseball and absolutely diminishes. You know, the, the individual home runs. And I, I, I remember covering the steroid era back in the nineties, suddenly, the number five hundred five hundred career home runs it became I don't want to say meaningless. That's not really that fair. But it became not that big of a deal hitting four hundred home runs wasn't that big of deal even three hundred home runs when I was growing up as a kid that big number, and then it became kind of nothing. And I do think that baseball runs the risk of diminishing a lot of numbers, again the way that it happened in the nineties, and look as this continues this explosion of home runs continues, a course it leads all kinds of conspiracy theories, and it is the ball players juice. And that's a place where baseball doesn't wanna go. No, that's really good point. You know, that's the potential PR hit or a PR concern that you do after worry about. And I mean to me the. Effect. Here is the game loses its variety. You know you go back to the nineteen eighties. You had all the speed teams because of astroturf yet teams like the Red Sox that just tried to pound home runs. Be at all different kinds of style of play. Even two thousand fourteen when nobody was hitting. We had the giants in the royals in the World Series. Two teams that did not hit home runs. That was five years ago that style of play could not win in today's game because you have to hit the ball over the fence to win. And you're exactly right. It'll be interesting to see what happens is summer goes along. Because you know how they're ebbs and flows with these. Yeah. Right. Last night. Dodgers and angels who was a classic dodgers game. And I think you'll agree with me the dodgers are the best team in the National League and there's a gap between them and the rest of the National League ba- last night engine Ryu pitched great. And then the bullpen blew it after he left the game. Here's Dave Roberts talking after the game about Joe Kelley and his struggles and the dodgers bullpen giving us still right there. That was Joe spot. We need them attract, but we just can't come and. Walk Otani on on four pitches. You know, in just I think that right there. He was just a lot of misfires and the walk to, to loot nuke ROY and had a close play on the Muncie. Play the field of choice and called him go away. But I think a little bit right there. It, it, it sped up and made some good pitches after the damage was done a lot of misfires. Yeah. I talking about the dodgers bullpen. I was looking at the numbers this morning. LA's offense, OPSEC's eight oh, five. That's the third best in the majors the rotation. ERA is the second best in the majors two point seven three defensive runs saved, nave seventy five that's the best in baseball, which of these things is not like the other the bullpen four point four two era. Eighteenth at thirty teams and I was thinking about this this morning. David. You remember two thousand sixteen the in the middle of that summer. Theo Epstein basically said you know what we're making a move to try to win the World Series. He's, they made an aggressive trade for all this chaplain giving glacier, Torres the Cleveland Indians trying to win their first World Series since nineteen forty eight they may not aggressive move, rendre Miller. If you talk about a contender that absolutely should make aggressive moves, as we moved forward, whether it's for the Indians, Brad hand, or the national Sean Doolittle, if they become sellers of the pirates fully bay Vasquez. It's the dodgers. They should do whatever it takes to fix that bullpen because this is a great team that has, and this is, you know, given the events of the day in the NBA yesterday, probably not the best choice of words, but the achilles heel without a doubt. The dodgers bullpen and they need to fix it. The yeah. No, I think this is maybe the best dodger team of these, you know they've been on it so deep on offense in rotation. And you mentioned that four four two ERA. That's eighteenth. At even over-rates how this bullpen is performed. I like using these days. Win probability added to look at a bullpen, which kind of more Mazars clutch. It factors in when you're giving up the runs and according to fan graphs, the dodgers are twenty-seventh in the majors in bullpen win probability. They so the are as bad, but they've been even worse than that only the Mariners royals nationals have been worse. Totally unclench. It's they, they really need to of those guys that you mentioned not just one because as much kenley Jansen has been better this year. But the eighth seventh inning has been an issue. You agree with me that if a team is going to be aggressive in the way, the cubs were the way they need in baseball among the thirty teams right now the dodgers team that should extend themselves even if it means getting giving up an on just pulling the numbers out out of a hat twenty percent extra value to make a trade to get a guy like Brad hand do it the off the team is worthwhile. Yeah. Think CO has regrets that, you know glacier is a star for the Yankees. No, the dodgers. It's been nineteen Eighty-eight since they won a World Series. You don't know how many more years, this team is going to be that, that great it. They should continue this run. But they have a great farm system. They have the money just make the big trade that everybody knows you have to make. Yeah. And I'll just relate, I told the story before, it's we're telling again, there was a team that had an analytics department meeting a couple years after two thousand sixteen when the Indians and cubs made those really trade for relievers, and theoretical question was posed in the room to the analyst. Would you make that trade if you were the cubs, if you were the Indians, would you make those deals and every analysts in the room said, no, you're giving up too much value? It's not worth it and old school. Baseball guy in the room. Basically looked at all the rest of them said you guys are out of your minds. But that's why you get into this game. To win. When you have a chance to have an opportunity win the World Series. You should be aggressive and try to augment that. Yeah. That's the price you pay for that, that final piece. And I know what their rationale is. Well, the postseasons a crap shoot. There's no guarantee. But again, when your weakness is so obvious in what you carrying on Joe Kelley to suddenly find that October. Magic two years in a row. You can't count on that, that was probably a once in a lifetime run that show Kelly had last year to earn them a lot of money from the dodgers. You know I get it. There's no guarantee of anything. But if you have a chance to win it all, and this is what frustrates fans in general about a lot of baseball team today. There's just that reluctance, you know, to spend the money or make that big move. All right. Last one before you go in Atlanta last night. The pirates are playing the Braves. Joe must grow pitching for the pirates with the rotation completely banged up. He threw a fastball inside to Josh Donaldson Nick to shirt, and after he was hit by that pitch. Donaldson started move toward first. And then he looked at muss grove and then must have looked at him. They start yelling each other at each other about about looking at each other. Donaldson's move forward moves forward toward Moscow, the Moscow, drops his glove and hat, and, you know, and I know in baseball that's code for, let's go like, right? And then after the field was cleared and both benches emptied bullpens empty, but the weren't really any punches thrown after the field was cleared. The Pires announced that both guys rejected and Clinton Earl the parts manager short on starting pitching was furious. He got a decade to James on the respected starter for the pirates tweeted out about how is an show and the fire should have reacted that way. Tom Gorman who's the crew. Chief explained after the game that one must grow dropped his glove. It showed aggression. And that's the key word, Dave. Is he talked on Pires? They talk about who shows aggression, and who doesn't. And I know on Twitter last night, people were killing empires for that ojection. I thought it was appropriate because I think when you watch it, I, I, I think there's no chance of muss growth throughout them on purpose. I thought Donald Donaldson totally overreacted on the way was yelling at him the way that he was looking at them. But if you're not fire and you wondering what's going on or you, maybe you're not completely certain what's going on and a player drops his hat in his glove. Like let's go then it moves it to another realm. And that's Tom Gorman was talking about I get the ejection. What about you? Yeah. I hear where you're coming from AB. I miss the same highlight that you thought to me, I didn't see muskrat most grove take his hat off until the benches had cleared, you know. So everybody was on the field and then he's in the back of all the other players. He takes his hat off. Right. So that was already after the aggression had sort of already started. Maybe he dropped his glove at some earlier point. I didn't see that in the highlight. So I'd I'm with you. You can't show the aggression, but I don't know it seemed like to me that Gorman jumped the gun a little a little too quick for my taste. All right, Dave. We'll agree to disagree. So, you know, I I'm curious when I get next chance I get a chance talk the pirates before the Sunday night game. How they felt about how things went down in that game. Hey, thanks for doing this.

In Boston of David Ortiz were all thinking about him. Now tell me about how you found out the news and, and know who you've talked to since you've heard the news. Yeah, I got a text before it. Kinda the news broke from a good friend of mine had just seen Chicago. That ran a lot of the, the player stuff, you know, visit hospitals and kind of play personnel between the front office, Catherine quirk who works, the Red Sox. And, and she'd text me and said, David had been shot, then I text THEO and jed and tried to find out more information they were just kinda hearing everybody was just kind of getting the news. And then, you know, maybe about an hour later or thirty minutes later it broke on TV so just paying attention a bunch of what's your former colleagues and teammates of niece doubt and trying to get his number and, you know, you, you, you worry about it, and I'm glad he's back in Boston. Get the best care possible, but, you know, scare scary thing and moment for everybody in baseball when come in contact with David at all or been around him. And, and. Felt his energy and how he affects people was he how how much he does and, and either in Boston or Dominican. I mean, this is this is one of the top people you ever going to be one of the best human beings on the planet. I mean, this guy's amazing. Tell me what it was like being around him in the clubhouse every day. Man, I just I, I was hearing a lot of stories from people in prayers go out and it just it lights up your face. When you start to think back about being able to be teammates of this guy. He ran a microphone on the bus. I mean, he's one of the funniest people you ever meet and you. It's a rare superstar and a guy his caliber that you could yell back in and get on him and the banter between him and Dustin Pedroia on the bus, and everybody yelling at David him. Just his his his big chuckle over the microphone is pretty infectious and, and put the small face right now. But then as a teammate and a player, I you know, he, he brought it every day. He he wanted to help. Learn when mind-blowing experience for me in the back of a plane on a long west coast trip. We had just listening to him talk kidding. And there's probably about five of us back there. And listen to talk about. What he thinks about what he looks for. He was playing a different game than I ever thought about in the box. This guy is on another level when it comes to, to hitting and, and his approach, you really always talked about be who you are be what you're, you're good at is, is saying was kinda kinda different in his Latin accent, was just your nature. And meaning you know if you're a fastball hitter hit the passed ball. Don't miss the fastball. Don't over think it keep it simple. He was really big on that. And then, you know, watching him walk out of the dugout I got to I you know, as a backup player and, and I got to sit on the bench and watch him walk out of the dugout at Fenway park and watch the whole stadium erupt like Elvis was walk into building to put on a concert. I mean this guy and he knew it. I mean the people had paid money to come see him hit. And when he stepped out of that, that dug out and walked out there to the fans he was an iconic figure to say the least. Yeah, I had conversations with a lot of your teammates about what it was like to talk hitting with him. And it reminds me of the stories you hear about, Joey Votto of the reds, where people just say, like it's a completely different level. His understanding David once said to me toward the end of his career, it's too bad that ever have all this knowledge, that I'm not going to be using anymore. Yeah. He's got a lot of there. And, and he watched the gay, I used to like to watch the bench. I would go in the dugout and sit and watch him. He would watch the game and from from up in the clubhouse and all the, the clubhouse guys would be hanging out with him. And he would just be shoot the bull but he would be you would think he wasn't locked in. But he always had the game on and he was looking up at the game. And he was telling me just about like what they throw my carpet three to change. What do you think big Papi's getting, you know and, and making the game in that way, knowing what he was going to get in surge situations? Buster, funny story we were in the playoffs in thirteen and plan Detroit. And he wasn't, you know, really as yet like he did in the World Series but a member we're at home. And he walked in one day with. I mean he was blamed out he had on this. Like crushed velvet sport jacket, with black jeans maroon jacket. And he had the. Blink all over the shoes, this patent leather shoes. And everybody's like pod. We call him big pond. Big punishers, what or with dust, and nicknamed him. So we call him pon, and like pun, what do you do it, this it? We don't travel day. What are you doing on your sport on? He goes, I won't be on the podium tonight. And sure enough, he that, that been wa that been walked where torii hunter's balls over the, the outfield fence. So that home run to tied up grand slam late night ballgame. They was the eighth inning. So he sure enough. An and I'll never forget a reporter asking him what he was up in the weight room about to walk into the, the media room and a report asking David that one of your biggest ones you've ever hit and he kind of smirked at him. He goes, I've had a couple of big moments. You know, meaning like I've been doing this a long time. I've, I've, I've, I've, I rock this place. I've stepped onto throats a lot of time and, and the stadium and he was right man. What a what a cool iconic player to have as a teammate to be part of and watch that guy and what his daily routine is mass special special moments for me. And again, I'm glad we're talking about this. What kind of human being is and is sad that what happened to him? And, and I'm glad that reports are coming back. He's gonna be alright. Rossi you were in the building after the Boston marathon bombing, and he grabbed the microphone, what was that? Like. Well, it's true. David, you know that's kind of what we said afterward. It was exactly what Boston needed to hear you knew that he was a guy that could say something like that to the fans and it resignation me that's his home, and he, he loves that place. He's, he's treated like a God in that city. And to hear him say that was just spot on. You couldn't be any different the way that city handled all that the mayor the police chief, the, the, the people that sacrifice their lives, going out and hunting these these bad bad people, and you watch them every second you were glued to the TV about what was going on. And you just became attached to these people in the end, and David came out and said, exactly what we thought he could say and only David's way, and I thought it was special short and sweet and it was spot on man, he, he hit around the head, and, and, you know, he's just a special. Human being, and he's really close with that city. Last week when the cubs agreed to turns the Craig kimbrel, you were given a lot of credit for that. I saw a lot of people were talking about the role you had in those conversation, because you of course, know Craig from your days with the Atlanta Braves would Jamaica that signing. One was the first time, you, you laid eyes on him during the process or talk to him during the process. Yeah. It was it was funny. I talked to him in the off-season, first of all, obviously, I got a lot to I got too much credit for Brigham Kimber. Think Tom it's had a lot to do with that, right. Matt forty three million dollar check what I told Craig. I said, let's man, I said, if I was it was me and I had a checkbook, I just if it was my checkbook, just write you a big one now and we'd be on our way. But, you know, my role was kinda go down there is on him and just tell him, you know what, what the cubs organization was like my experiences, we had been I've been with, with organizations that he had been with, with Boston and Atlanta and San Diego. Even you know, I just wanted to tell him a little bit of the differences between each one and and what I liked and didn't like about certain certain things that, that the cubs, did, and tell him, you know, with all you had to go along with his family. And what what the medical staff was like, just kind of tell him about it. You know, I'm you know trying to sell him on a little bit. But just being honest with him, you know, from a friend and a former teammate, I don't think anywhere he was gonna pick was going to be a bad spot, but I just thought that our place in Chicago is special when I was there and there's a, there's a good vibe going on there. He knows a lot of those guys. Jason Heyward, John, Lester, I know a bunch of guys reached out to him. So I think I got a lot more credit for that than I deserve, and, and I went down. Theo THEO jed called me. An asked me to go down actually right after I did a game for them in Houston in Houston on Wednesday night. I was there Thursday, and they called me today can go to Orly. I live in Florida. So can you run down to Orlando and, and put is on Craig and maybe tell him tell him about our place. And so it was good. I it was pretty short and sweet when a whole lot of banter between us, and I knew he had a decision made for him this family. I wouldn't ever want to push somebody, I know how crazy free agency is when you get some choices you gotta do what's best for your family. I did the same thing when when when Hayward was a free agent when I was still playing and how much I'd love to play with him. But you gotta do what's best for your family. And so I tried to tell Craig all the things I knew. And so he can make the best decision for him. And last one, the dodgers have a phenomenal team this year. But their bullpen is an issue at this point. I said earlier in the podcast, that look like the cubs with all this Chavan, a two thousand sixteen like the Indians with Andrew Miller in two thousand sixteen the dodgers are so good that I feel like they need to address this through a trade and do it, it takes, you know, if it means giving up an extra ten percent twenty percent in value. You know, go get someone like Brad hand of the Indians, or Felipe Vasquez, the Pittsburgh Pirates. What did it mean to the two thousand sixteen cubs a team you were on at the time? You guys got a roll this Jabeen. Yeah. I mean, the bullpen piece is such a big piece when you're in the playoff hunt, because you're already good enough to be in that conversation and your front office. We know how good the dodgers are for me. They're they're wanna talk to teams in baseball. And when you have just a small issue like the bullpen and you're able to go in there and flopped guys back down put a guy on the back end of that bullpen or a big piece in there. And everybody kind of slots into their role in an earlier easier manner, and then it just puts less pressure on the starters throughout the, the second half of the season and you're able to go in a little fresher, maybe into the postseason. I I it was everything for us in sixteen. I mean we had a legit closer and Ron dawn, Pedro stroke was a phenomenon dinning guy he could go to the seven, we, it just slotted everybody down and the game became a lot shorter. For us. When we needed it to on days, when our star what couldn't go seven and even now and today's game six so that bullpen pieces huge unglamorous, Geico favored Torres as it pretty pretty important piece over there with the Yankees, and, and I talked to one of the front office guys and he said, I don't know if I'd ever been comfortable with this trade unless we would have won the World Series. I'm so glad we did because now at peace with it. And that's how good they were tour is. So they gave up a lot of Asli. But, you know it's hard and an opportunity to win the World Series. Don't come around that often. That's exactly right. Rossi. Thanks for doing this. Thanks for the great perspective, on David, of course, BUSTER, always pledged to talk to you by see some listen up fellas DSL is built for big and tall guys. Okay.

Numbers gay Sarah Lang's is a reporter and a producer for MLB dot com. Sarah was talking with Dave show and field about the dodgers. And how great of a team they have, but they have this obvious achilles. Heel to me in their bullpen when you look at the ranking, how that's perform, and I feel like a lot of times when a team is in contention. Maybe it's not worthwhile to go get a finishing piece to overpay for, you know, high price relievers starting pitcher or a position player. But when you look at the rest of the dodger team absolutely this would be a time where go pay what it takes to get a Brad hand or Felipe Vasquez. What do you think? One hundred percent you know, it reminds me of the twenty sixteen cubs when they got a role. This Chapman their bullpen wasn't even in the state. I think that the dodgers is right now. But they didn't necessarily need him in that moment and we talked about at the time and it was clearly a move for October. And I think that's what the dodgers need. They have such an incredible team. They're going to win this division now question. But you just hate. To see the idea that they might falter in the playoffs because they can't necessarily finish out these games in the same way. And right now, they can't not every single one. Yeah. The thing that I like about someone like a hand or Vasquez to your point about, you know, the fact that you're, you're centrally this point. Buying for the postseason. Those guys are under team control beyond two thousand nineteen so could help the dodgers bullpen this year and next year as well. All right. Let's play the numbers game number three. Number three is twenty so speaking of that dodgers bullpen. That's how many runs Joe Kelley has allowed this season after allowing two one of which was earned on Monday night. He's allowed twenty runs. Eighteen of them have been earned in twenty and a third innings. Remember he allowed two runs was earned in eleven and a third innings last postseason when we saw him pitch so well to get the contract that he got from the dodgers and for the season last year. He allowed thirty four runs total in more than sixty five innings. So he's getting very close to that number again in just twenty innings. He has a seven point five nine era, which is third worst among qualified relievers this season. Only Mike, right. And Dominic Leoni have been worse. John Jin Ryu, his teammate who pitched yesterday and the team was unable to win that game has allowed thirteen runs in eighty six innings this season. So compare that to what Joe Kelley has done. Number two. Number two is three that's how many consecutive home runs. The Diamondbacks hit to start the game against the Phillies on Monday back to back to back. It was the six time in history. Team had hit three straight home runs to start a game and the first time since July twenty first twenty seventeen which was by the Diamondbacks off of max Scherzer, which is incredible to think that he has done that the Diamondbacks are the only team to hit three straight home runs. A game multiple times. So it's happened six times and two of those revive the Diamondbacks, and it wasn't just the Diamondbacks hitting home runs last night to be fair that game ended with thirteen home runs total, the most combined home runs in any game in MLB history. The Diamondbacks hit seven of them, which was a franchise record for them. Number one number one is ten Chris sale struck out ten batters on Monday night his eighth ten strikeout game this season. The most in the majors. But the Red Sox went onto Luth game. Speaking of bullpens, it was his twenty eighth ten strikeout game of his career that his team went on to lose, which is the fourth most such games by any pitcher since at least nineteen o eight the only pitchers with more team losses when strikeout ten or more batters or Nolan Ryan was sixty seven Randy Johnson with fifty nine and Pedro Martinez with thirty five sales teams are forty four and twenty eight when he strikes out at least ten batters in his career. Yeah. He looks better and better and better as the season goes along. Sarah, thanks for doing this. Thanks so much for having me about sir. Leisure tweets. All right BUSTER. Let's kick it off with this one from Chris Mitchell at Chris M Red Sox won says mad bones. No trade list, left off the team that I think could benefit the most from them the twins. Imagine what a veteran presence postseason icon could do on the mound, and in the clubhouse for that team your thoughts. Yeah. I would agree with that. But I think that what we saw play out without Tikal, and Craig kimbrel is instructive, as to the question of whether or not the twins would pay for Madison Bumgarner. We know the price of behi- and we sit before the kaikal and kimbrel thing. They have a huge lead. The American League central there's not a lot of pressure on them. I think the twins knowing how they assess value. I think it's more likely they just wait for some of the other decent starters, dropping their lap. And all they have to do is take on money and not raid, the form system, next. An interesting one from Scholz at Ben Scholtz, twelve guys with the cardinals poor play versus the cubs, especially since October fifteen. At what point should John Zane lack worry about his job BUSTER? And I haven't specifically dug into that question about whether or not, he's on solid ground, because he has an excellent relationship with his boss Bill DeWitt junior. I can't imagine that would be in play. But, you know, these things go, you know, Mike Metheny at a really good relationship with Bill Winston your knees, not managing anymore. Yeah. It's true. It's true. It sounds unthinkable, but it might be a reality Don Irvine says the dodgers have a run differential of plus one, oh five the cobs are at plus sixty five and believe it or not the Diamondbacks. Plus, sixty one after that, none of the contenders are even close to having a run differential that good. How much does that metric factor into postseason success? Well, it doesn't necessarily factor into postseason success because of course you get knocked over and this, and they slave is white cleaned. You go back to zero. But I will tell you that when you talk to front office types, and you assess strengths weaknesses, various teams, you would not believe how often run differen-. Was quoted where an executive say, well, you know what? We're plus fifty today. I feel I feel like we're doing a lot better or you know, in the last month where we're minus fifty tells you where we are in terms of whether or not we're going to be buyers or sellers. They look at that number all the time, which, Josh when people come at you and Twitter and say, well, Randy Ferenci doesn't mean anything well the front office, folks. Definitely disagree. Yeah. Now that. And it's not often that Muppets come after me on Twitter BUSTER. And I should. Yeah. That was really good. I should specify said none of the contenders. None of the National League contenders. I have a run differential as good as those three clubs. Finally Mitchell, who's at Tigers of Detroit wants to know which is more likely to happen this year. Christian yelich becoming the first player to slug seven hundred since Barry Bonds, or the Texas Rangers make the playoffs Mitchell. We talked about how the Rangers to me are one of the great surprise teams in baseball. But given the choice of those two I'm gonna say yelich become the first player since bonds slug over seven hundred because he made a change in midseason last year. And in the second half a seven seventy slugging percentage. I have this year so far seven forty five that tells you he has been really good for a long time. I'm betting on Christian yelich absolutely ending. That's where the smart money is good questions today. Keeping coming use the hashtag Bleacher tweets and that's it for today, might thanks to David Ross to Sarah Lang.

However, that game was postponed because. Rain. He's going to pitch for class a Rome tonight, Dallas kaikal spoke with reporters about what happened during the winter for him as he was looking for his next deal. The system is what it is at this point in time us as the players we did a bad job with negotiations in. It's our own fault. I think being Craig handle ourselves very, very professional even not on teams. You know, it's something that'll need to be brought up in the next couple of years as a CBA comes up. So he's very blunt in his criticism of the union leadership there about the negotiation the way that played out and its impact on him the keys and the Indians were tied six all tenth inning.

Monchy hammers wanted to right field. This ball headed over the landing, and into the Covey co for a home run match Muncie with his thirteenth home. None of the season. It is one nothing dodgers. And Bumgarner was talking Muncie. Going to I and toward second hope late on fire will little come back Muncie. Peaked over the left shoulder Bumgarner through it Muncie, hit and munchies lending know about it. That's right at twenty seven second trip around the basis for max Muncie. He was slowed because of his exchanges with Bumgarner who started barking at him shortly after he got out of the batter's box at one point backs months. He was waving to them, like, come on. Let's go. So certainly something that was talked to allow a lot on Sunday with a one. Oh lead. Justin Turner helped out in the bottom of the sixth. Yes, scary. The dancers we've made. From spectrum sports. LA Joe Davis. Who that call the early one, of course, Tim never and Rick Monday, AM five seventy L A sports. The dodgers would hold on and win one nothing after the game. Max Muncie was asked by Alana Rizzo about that exchange with Madison, Bumgarner K there seem to be some exception to Madison Bumgarner on that home run, what exactly was the exchange there. What do you think happened? Well, he hit the ball and then he yelled at me. He said, don't watch the ball you run. And I just responded back, you know, if you if you don't want me to watch the ball, you can go get it out of the ocean. Did you like the fact that you are now the next chapter in this giants dodgers rivalry? And I believe that you did ask him to run the bases with, you know. He kept mouthing off told me come, you know, come get it, but. You know, he's compared to their he was just fired up about it. You know, I don't that definitely helps it doesn't turn into a week thing because I don't want that on my shoulders. But, you know, I should just him competing out there and, you know, his upset he made a bad bitch. And, and that's all there was. It was Madison Bumgarner view of what happened in speaking with reporters. And you know, I gotta say it with a straight. I was gonna say the more I think about it just let the kids play. What what everybody's saying? What did he do is just a long stare at the homeowner? Oh, just struck opposing walk further than I lacked, that's fine. You wanna do that, do it, but I'm going to do what I wanted to spend your laughing about a little bit. Are you softening at all towards that kind of? Shire's. I mean, I think they're the game is changing a little bit in terms of what is this for sure? It not for you, though. I wanna let everybody be themselves from being the letting me be myself. That's me. Yeah, I'm just assume fi than walk. So do you think doing? We're going to hear from Paul Goldschmidt today. Todd Radim with cap talk. Let's get to it. Seen heads. Rejoice noodle keeps TIMMY time this great game or what with tin in on baseball tonight at Tim coaching covers baseball for ESPN and Tim. I've always been amazed at the power of major league baseball players to connect with people, you see the mess out of the dugout, you know, shaking hands with fans or posing for pictures with kids and just to see the reaction to those guys to me as it's always been touching to me, and I don't think anybody in body that more as a player David Ortiz, you this day big lap. Big smile. Big hits big personality, which is why the news that we got last night was so jarring. I was actually in a car on the way back to the hotel after Sunday night baseball. And someone said yet David Ortiz, was shot and it just it was just it. Just took you a back. And, you know, we hope as we move forward that the news that he's in stable condition. We got from Enrica row houses morning that it continues to get better from there. But man that that was just stunning. Yeah, I got off an airplane last night BUSTER turned on my phone. And that's the first thing I saw he goes to say it just took my breath way. Thank goodness, it appears he's going to be okay. But BUSTER, I know at least people in my life, who've said something to this effect that their lives would be made if someday they could just meet David Ortiz. That's what he does to people who have been watching him play all these years because it's way beyond just what it amazingly productive player. He's been. It's the way he carries himself the way he presents himself that incredibly warm smile that he has. And how everything is a celebration for him. I mean even pokes BUSTER, you've seen it a thousand times the way that he used to handle a crack in how everyone to team seems to be lifted by the way that things were done by him during. Outing practice. That's who he is. And the way he has captivated that city, which is a great town, of course, but a tough place to play on certain days to be that beloved really speak to directly who David Ortiz is so will continue to cry that this is the recovery goes this Moodley as possible. Yeah, we'll always remember his words after the Boston marathon, bombings at Fenway park, and how that touch the city last night. Tweets reactions coming from all corners, Pedro Martinez tweeting them at peace. Knowing your added danger, your strong man came. Wait to hear your voice my thoughts and prayers are with you. See you soon. The Red Sox put out a statement late last night. We were made aware of an incident involving David Ortiz and Dominican Republic David's family confirmed that he sustained a gunshot wound. They mentioned where he was treated. We have offered David's family, all able resources to aid in his recovery, and will continue to keep them in our hearts and our. Peter gammons tweeting out this morning. I choose to pray along with Tiffany, Alexandra. The Angelo ingest score tease, mentioning members, of course of is, is wife and his family. I don't wanna see the video. I don't need details. I just want the family together in a weight poppies resounding laugh, and Tim. You were mentioning the way that he would you know, greet players on other teams around the batting cage, it was funny to me, but, you know, managers, as you know, a lot of the old school managers would complain about that. But when involved or tease, it was almost like everyone would just shrug like that. That's David Ortiz. You know, we don't want we don't want most players doing it, but David Ortiz going to do it, then everyone's going to respond positively to it because that's just him. Right. And that is him and that engaging nature that he has will never lose is what makes him such a big personality. I know it's a cliche, but he he's rockstar when he played he's rockstar anytime is in uniform and wherever he shows up now same thing happens. I remember when I was covering dugout reporter sideline reporter for game and Rick Sutcliffe was doing the game. Four I looked around Sutton is out on the field during batting practice talking to David Ortiz on the field. Rick Sutcliffe his broadcasting became that night because they not should come on out of here. Talk to me. That's what David Ortiz, does he runs the whole show, and it was a great show to watch whenever he was out there. Yeah, I love covering Red Sox games when he was there because eventually be round the batting cage, and you give me the wave and come on over and you always had something on his mind. Always want to talk about something. And it seemed like every conversation gonna punctuated with a laugh and his Pedro. Martinez says we all can't wait to hear that laugh again as as he recovers. And as we get more details and before he make an awkward transition into really unimportant stuff on the field just want to say, Enrica Rojo's, Marley Rivera worked for us. They do such a great job. And they did a tremendous job in the reporting of this overnight. Right on Sunday Madison, Bumgarner on the mound for the giants Tim against the dodgers max Muncie. It's a home run. A bomb into McCovey cove on a high fastball when I saw the replay this I didn't think but see really did that much wrong. He paused for millisecond took a couple of slow steps out of the box. And then he began to jog around the basis and Battiston Bumgarner just starts screaming at him. Star yelling bag and gives him a wave like you wanna piece in me. Come and get me Madison keeps Yellen, Adam. And then we heard Muncie after the game we heard Madison after the game. And I gotta tell you when it's all over, here's my final thought on it think Madison. Bumgarner gave up a home run. He was upset about it falling behind his arch-rival. Dodgers. That's what the reaction was, and I kind of have a bit of a struggle shoulders about that. And I didn't think when backs months he did was bad at all, when you talk about the whole culture of backflips. What about you? Yeah. I watched it three times yesterday BUSTER nine said on the air for baseball tonight. Then I didn't think max Muncie deserve to be yelled at four something like that. He just hit a ball over the canoes in McCovey cove. That's how far he hit that ball. It off one of the best pitchers in the game. And hide did stick what he did was agreed on any level. But I also know this is who. Madison. Bumgarner is, which is what he's been saying all along. Let me be who I am. I'm most comfortable being this way. So I think we all need to have knowledge. This is who he is. He's throwback guy. And I kinda like it that he still angry. He's still bitter enough. When someone hits a Homer off of him that he's not gonna take it and he's not gonna be happy about, but what he did yesterday. I thought was over the top because I don't think that deserved. I don't think max Muncie deserved to be screamed at. I think really over the top would be if the next time he faces max Muncie. He drills him, which would be completely silly. But you get the feeling and listening to Madison talk after the game that that's not where he was headed with this. It was almost like well he's going to do what he's going to do and I'm going to do what I'm gonna do. And let us be who we are agree with me. He asked monster. And again the game is changing and has changed right in front of rise. It's changed more to last five years than it than it did the first thirty five years that I covered. And this is one of the big changes, bad flip screaming at guys things like that and most pitchers. Most pitchers are okay with it. But Masson Bumgarner came from a different time. He's pitching in the World Series at age twenty twenty one, and he knows the different way of doing things and I kind of admire him for saying, look, this is who I am. And even though the game has changed. I'm not changing along with it. I'm a tough stubborn. Guy from North Carolina. And nobody is going to take his time going around the basis against me. I kind of admire that, but you have to adjust to the tonight here and the times have changed dramatically in some of our veteran players are having trouble with it. I don't think there's any question to him that the Chicago Cubs were energized by their acquisition to Craig kimbrel and talking with players over the weekend. It talked about how excited they are. He threw in a bullpen session on Saturdays fastball up to ninety four miles per hour. Heard from the cubs stabby a sharp curve ball. They loved the spin Ray data that they had, you know, it remains to be seen how he's going to pitch for them. But I think there's been an immediate impact even before he steps on the field. They sweep the Saint Louis cardinals over the weekend. And man Kyle Schwartz. Looks is locked in as I've ever seen him. And I really feel like that. If you have a really an excellent Kyle Schwartz at the top of that line of and makes that whole group look completely different. What do you think? Yeah. E-e-e-e-no buster. He made is the swing adjustments. This spring got much more of a crowd, much for athletic, look, much more out of his legs. And even though it didn't show until really recently I keep thinking this guy is a really, really good hitter. That is going to completely go crazy someday. And I think we might be seeing start of that. I just refused to believe with as far along he was as a hitter, such a young man of what he did in that two thousand sixteen World Series that there isn't more there. And now I think we're starting to see it. I think they need a leadoff guy now especially with Ben's overs some other issues that he might be the guy and the way he swung. The bad lately has been really, really aggressive. And if he's the guy that now we think, is the cubs offenses, even better than it was a month ago. In the most recent homestand that the cubs finish up last night, he at four thirty five with four sixty three on base percentage, two homers and five driven in the quote to Joe Madden from Joel Madden to reporters after the game was that's as good as ever seen him ever love his stance right now. Love what he's doing the box. That's it. That's why it's punishing the baseball, he's made some beautiful adjustment. So they're doing great. But Tim separation. The National League central is finally happening where you have the cubs in the brewers in a virtual tie at the top Saint Louis now five and a half back pirates seven back reds eight back and it really does feel like that. The cardinals are team still desperately trying to figure out who they are because they're just such inconsistency with that group. Yeah buster. I had them as a playoff team at the start of the season has a wildcard team. And now I'm starting to wonder for the first time like what what is missing here. I mean, we're talking about no play offs in the last several years. And at the moment, they're not going to the offs either. And they did what they had to do in the offseason, premier hitter premier relief pitcher and it's still hasn't gotten significantly better. I thought they upgraded their defense and now that, that issue is solved. And yet, and they still have the potential to go to really get going here and get back in this, but we're sixty five games in basically, and they're, they're five hundred team right now, and they're so up and down offensively especially I just don't get it. I don't see what's missing there. But clearly, something's been missing for the last few years. And we saw the Atlanta Braves signed Alice kaikal. I think the Yankees when they look for starting pitcher to add, they're gonna look for some. Buddy with a fastball that might play better in the American League east. So madison. Bumgarner may not necessarily be a great fit for the Yankees, timid. Absolutely. It feels like the clouds are sort of opening up in front of the Saint Louis cardinals where they to me on paper would be the best fit for Madison Bumgarner if a very right handed rotation. They've had a lot of inconsistency there. The performance is not been as good as they expected. It would not at all shocked me if we wind up seeing Bumgarner on the Saint Louis cardinals. What do you think? Yeah. Well, they stepped in as you know, by her on Dallas kaikal, they were interested in that. And I didn't see them being that interested early on. But their rotation simply hasn't been what they thought it was going to be I thought it was going to be a terrific rotation entering the season. But then 'cause Martinez got her Jack clarity has did. It's good as we thought he would be, although there's plenty of time for that turn around. And again, I think they're in a position where they have to do something potentially dramatic. Again, here to run with the cubs and the brewers in that division. Let alone trying to get past the dodgers should the cardinals even make it to October. Bumgarner would be that. But maybe you know better than me BUSTER do the cardinals have enough on their current team young players, and in their system to get Madison Bumgarner away from the giant. I think there's a real question there, too. Well, I think they absolutely would. And by the way, Ellis, Burks scout for the giants he was at the corals and Cup series over the weekend. And I think that, you know, I mean potentially Will Smith could be traded by the giants, but it certainly would be reason for Ellis Burks to be watching the coordinators to see what's available on the major league roster potentially for Bumgarner trade dare goal their friend at the Saint Louis post dispatch had this great line about the cardinals in his story this morning. He wrote that the last time the cardinal started season with six loss in their first six games in Chicago. Ago was nineteen. Oh, seven seven years before Wrigley open and back when the cubs were kings. What's old is new. And what's going wrong for the cardinals is getting old. There's no doubt about it. The right now. Feels like they're a team at a crossroad. We mentioned Dallas kaikal we heard from him over the weekend about what his situation and how it played out and how he was unsigned for so long. Boy, he was blunt as a sledgehammer in talking about the players side of the negotiation last CBA. Tim. Well, yeah. And he's not the only one I've heard this from. But that an I'll probably public as we heard it this spring. Certainly, I told you a couple of months ago BUSTER, former player told me of the last ago, she aviation's we the players got a contract with whole foods and they the owners gotta salary cap. That's how some of the players and former players look at the last negotiations. And I don't think there's any doubt that the owners won the last time around, and now the players are going to have to get some of that back. I think that's what Kyko was talking about. And I don't think that was just a bitter guy who is has a pitched yet. We're almost admit June. I think it's a guy that kind of reflects to some degree how much better the owners did in the last collective bargaining agreement. Yeah. No doubt about it to a high degree because I, I hear it a lot from players privately as you do where they're basically saying. What went wrong? Why are we in this position now and have a lot of questions about the leadership in how they handle the last run into Goshi? And I think moving forward wondering what the new strategy is going to be you agree with my premise at the cubs gained some energy from the signing of kimbrel. The Braves perhaps getting some energy from the signing kaikal. Well, there's no doubt BUSTER start with kimbrel. My goodness, the cubs, I believe they're only real weakness was the back end of that bullpen. And I think he solved it, and I think his arm, and his body and his pitching motion is all so different than almost anyone, we've seen in recent years. I think it comes in fire and right from the start and doesn't miss a whole lot from being out this long given the way he's thrown his entire career. And that's all the cubs needed was somebody pitched the ninth inning. And now I think they're in a great position to make the playoffs and you make the playoffs with that Roach. Station, and now a closer and potentially a really good offense. No doubt. And I think it Lanta became the team to beat maybe in that division with the kaikal signing because now they give he's got another veteran guy, and now they can work some guys out of that rotation potentially and maybe get old pen, help, especially late in games. All right. Tim. Well, thanks for doing this, and I'll talk to you soon. Okay. Buster travel safely. The are you big guy, fed up with clothes that don't fit. Here's a tip head to d- XL, anyone can make a bigger shirt, but DSL makes closed that actually fit. It's all they do one another secret. Okay. They've spent years developing their own sizing patterns to make sure it's a comfortable fit every time and every size and good luck finding that anywhere else. So head to d- XL dot com and check out a store near you DSL big and tall built for you at DSL dot com. Over the weekend. Buksh Shami caught up with the cardinals first baseman, Paul Goldschmidt, and Wrigley field. Give a lesson your team right in the thick of it in the central division. Let's start though with you making a transition coming over from Arizona. What's it been like playing for the cardinals? I mean it's one of the signature franchises in the sport. How has it been coming over from the organization that drafted and developed you? Yeah, it's been great. You know, said levers. But, you know, I was excited to be part of the cardinals organization, and they welcome very quickly. And you know in spring training at to meet everyone and see what the organization's all about and spent funding go out there and play with these guys. And hopefully go play well. And do something special this here. Give me a nugget or two you've watch Matt carpenter from across the field. You watch Paul D young from across the field. But now being around them every day. What are the things that you get to see up close from say, carp or Paul that set them apart that make them special man, I think I just know since spring training this whole team. I mean they're. Just dedicated, they're committed to winning and committed to getting better. You know, that's all we talk about ways we can get better. You win a game. You know what were the little things that the team did, whether it was defense or base running? So it's not just about out there. He'll go out there and try to mash but whatever it takes to win the game. And, you know, the guys hold each other accountable, and you know, it's great clubhouse in there, too. You've always been known as a good base runner in spring training. You make some statements to your teammates about how you guys could take advantage of quality base running right? Yeah. Of course, I mean something that, you know. Was spoken about a lot with the Diamondbacks. And you know, this team has potential to be a great base rain team. When I think, you know, they made sure is in it last year. And you'll have came out this year denigrate job as a team. So is actually, you know, a lot of focus on it. I said from the organization from the outside, you know coming in. I really know what it was like. But, you know some talked about on a daily basis. And you know I just think you know there's a lot of different ways to win the game. And the guys were, you know, agreeing with me and taught me a lot to tell me a little bit about what it's like to be in the middle of I mean, serious rivalry cardinals and cubs. It's not, you know, there aren't too many like you got Yankees Red Sox. Dodgers giants. But what's been your your sampling so far in terms of I mean it's obviously when we talk robberies we're talking about the fans, but what's your taste of it been like? It's been awesome. I mean, as maybe one of the first questions I got when I was created over and just been exciting to be part of it, and it was kind of been it's been a back and forth, so far this year, and I think probably one hundred plus years. It been playing it's always back and forth. Hopefully, we'll, we'll come out ahead and know maybe get a chance to see him in the playoffs. But you just know what the tough battle, and you're out there. The fans are into it. And, you know, the cities are so close proximity wise to other there's fans from both teams at both games. So it's almost like a college football game where you know there's the crowds cheering no matter what happens. So it's fun to be out there, a lot of energy, and, you know, you can feed off that good stuff. Good to see you. Thanks. We'll be back in a moment with Todd Radim. But I, I wanna tell you about DSL listen up guys, if you bigger tall, you know what a pain it is to find clothes that fit.

He's a graphic artist who's working be seeing a ball fields all around America all around the world, or you can go to website, Todd Raynham dot com. Todd good to talk with you this week. How you doing? I'm doing well BUSTER, good to speak with you Philo 's quite right. So, yeah. Every week, we always have portion of cap talk, and Josh, you basically took over the Email chain this week with a, a sort of an idea, unleash the beast. What did you mean? Yeah. I just meant caps that do not have letters on them. And instead have cartoons or animals or something of the like in my initial thought was to include minor league baseball on this, but Todd very correctly and astutely pointed out that if we included, minor league caps, we would be here. We'd be having this conversation all the way until next Friday, so we will, but I've always kind of been drawn to caps that don't have letters on them. And instead just have figures or animals or something like that. So I, I wanted to talk about that. Yeah. So a couple of things, of course, being a history guy. I went back in and kind of did a little bit of research, and I found a couple of fascinating things or maybe not so fascinating, depending upon who you are in eighteen ninety four. The Baltimore Orioles of the National League by the way were a wing on their caps for the temple Cup series which was basically the World Series of its time. And then in one thousand nine hundred one the newly formed, American League's Detroit Tigers. They included a little red tiger on their caps and that starts at all off. But so we go way back, and then we bring it up to the present, so BUSTER. What are your thoughts on unleashing the beasts in gimme some highlights that rare well without a doubt. The cartoon Auriol, right. And I'm assuming we're counting that even yeah. We're kinda. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. And last the last time I was around the cubs, you know, haven't that. Cubby bear on that spot where you normally have the CIO I like that. Yeah. And we've we discussed the idea of a potential cubs alternate cap sometime ago. I flagged something interesting on their spring training and BP caps. I guess the Oakland Athletics have their elephant with the sunglasses. Yeah. They had that. And now it's just a very simple silhouette. Josh? What are you feelings over here? Well, I always when I was a kid. I always really liked the cardinal's hat that just had the, the singular bird on the bat on it. I always thought that looked really sharp, but coming off our conversation a couple of weeks ago when we talked about landmarks on caps in a Twitter follower, pointed out to me that the eye of the Toronto Blue Jay is, in fact, the C N tower. Oh, no, no, no, no, my mind, and I loved, it is that not true. I think that, you know, it's, it's like to pack and JFK or. On a beach with Maryland. I, I, I don't believe that, that is the case. Let's just say also. Yeah. I mean conspiracy theories can get just take off and go wild. No, no, no, no. Fair enough. But I, I still like the blue the blue Jay is good. I agree. So you so you think that it's that's like a Russia's test, right? Either that or just, you know, I mean people with a lot of time on their hands and wanna see things that don't actually exist. I'll also say that when I redid though, when I did the Washington nationals logo when the Expos moved to DC going into the oh, five season. There's a ribbon at the top of that primary logo the word Mark thing. And people were convinced that echoed, the top of RFK stadium, and I don't know. Just. No, no, no. All right. Let's steer this back on topic, I flagged a couple of other ones. We have a four the birds, which of course, Orioles Blue Jays is you just reference cardinals as he fed, Josh. We have the Florida fish to the raise the oh, raise from would that enormous Ray and the Marlins, who, of course, are newly redone for nineteen had their f- with the fish going through it on their caps and BUSTER. I know you've talked about your fun nece for that. I love that. I still love that. In fact, it was one of my goals this year to go back and get one of those caps, I feel like that one shouldn't count though, because it has the F on it. So kind of cheating, the my original thought here was no letters involved at all. So that the F is kind of a I don't know, kind of tarnishes it a little bit. It's a hybrid like what I'm gonna I'm gonna break your unwritten rule, Josh. Okay. Fair. That's just the way it goes. I want the Marlin cap in this conversation. A couple of other ones that I flagged the Diamondbacks. You know, we have warm and cold blooded animals in here. And a couple from integrity, as well aside from the ones that I referenced earlier the nineteen fourteen cubs, which I know we've discussed that little cubby bear in the baseball bat, bring that thing back, I think, and then a couple of offshoots briefly, the Philadelphia Phillies rename themselves to Philadelphia Blue Jays in the nineteen forties and the blue Jay made it to their sleeves. It did not get onto the headwear was that blue Jay did that blue Jay have the tower inside, too. William. Liberty bill. Liberty bells. Yeah. But and then just lastly for me the theoretical, what you could do. Otherwise, I looked at every current and they'll be club and, you know, the offshoots would be to the Colorado Rockies Sunday, a dinosaur on their headwear could be, you know, because of their mascot, and the only other one would be eight the Texas Rangers have their horse mascot now. That's really digging deep. And I don't think it's appropriate but animal clubs. There you go. What about the moose in Seattle is most popular figure? I like that one little Antlers going on there with the with the with, with the space needle. That's right. Something like that. Exactly. That absolutely. Yeah. That would be that would be really cool. All right. Let's get to this week's quiz. All right. Here we go the royals and the Tigers will soon play a regular season game in Omaha. The first regulation MLB game to ever take place in the state of Nebraska. So here's this week's question which one of these states has never. Hosted a regular season MLB game. Is it a Hawaii be New Jersey Seve, Rhode Island or de Kansas, never a regular season game and only one of these states? Hawaii New Jersey, Rhode Island or Kansas. Oh my gosh. Oh, wow. Wow, midseason. You know, I keep saying it's time to step it up. Man. Oh man. Why? My goodness. I'm going to go. Oh, jeez. Joshi's thinking over the answer. Well, there's an obvious answer, which means that it's not that. Oh my goodness. Wow. What a great question Todd. I love that question. I'm gonna go with Kansas. Yeah. So you, you want us to stay Hawaii, which means that it's not Hawaii. I'm going to go New Jersey. Muster has drawn blood. Maybe. Kansas game. So, by the way. Z Z the cardinals and the Padres played in Hawaii in the late nineties, New Jersey was host to the Brooklyn. Dodgers first Syria before they escape come on. That was wins. But here's the obscure one Rhode Island at Warwick, Rhode Island on September six nineteen zero three the Phillies and the Boston bean eaters, I guess, at that point. Played a regular season game. In Warwick, Rhode Island. I think it had to do it Sunday, blue laws or some such thing. So Kansas is the answer and BUSTER, is this week's winner? Nice now just to behind love it. You are closing fast. That's right. That's right objects in rear view mirror closer than they appear. All right, Tom. Thanks for doing this. All right, guys. Thanks. Bleacher tweets cluster leads kick off the week with this one from Mark Richard at 'em. Richard thirty eight BUSTER. You've had this conversation with Keith already. But as Vanderbilt along, how do you feel about one hundred thirty one pitches for the kid to get the known over the weekend memory will last a lifetime? But if an injury later cost him a shot at the big is it worth it? Yeah. Kamara rocker courses the reference there with that unbelievable performance has how about that Saturday night. They tow hitter and nineteenth strikeouts. Look, I'm going to be honest here I I'm too close to it to, to give you a fair assessment. Like I, I you know, I watched the highlights I can't say that I watched the game from getting to end I was working and I saw a lot of it when I got up on Sunday morning. And what are what an impressive performance? He had and I tried to put myself in Tim Corbin, shoes, who's obviously, been terrific and Keith told us before that he thinks fan done a great job in protecting pitchers. But I just feel like too close to it to give you know an objective assessment about this so later in the week, we will ask this question to Keith law. Yeah. Hundred and thirty one pitches, certainly a lot. But hey if the kid visit Keelan. Yeah, he was he was rolling. And he's, you know, he's huge in probably has a lot more stamina than a lot of pitchers do. And that's I, I am curious to see what did was. This was one of the first things I thought of when I saw the highlights what will keep think about this? -absolutely esoteric, Eric zero is next. He get now goes by the name count ravioli, the count says conditio BUSTER, Josh through ten starts this year. Mike saroka seven in one with a one point three eight ERA. Do you think he's positioned himself as the front runner for rookie of the year? How about the Cy? Yeah. I think he impede Alonso at this point. Probably be wrestling for the rookie of the year ward. He's definitely in the conversation for Cy Young award. The question is some point will the Braves have to pull back on his endings a little bit. And I think that was part of the rationale for signing. Dallas, kaikal Dallas Kogen at Kogen fifteen with the angels being linked to a trade for Marcus Stroman, perhaps, would, you think that's a good move considering where they currently reside in the standings, it depends on the asking price and Bluejays have a reputation and being a team that is very ardent in sticking to. It's action price. But yeah, I think it was removed for not only angels trying to make the wild card this year because let's face it, winning the American League West is probably the question but they're trying to get back to the postseason. They're trying to get to the playoffs and you understand if they were to be aggressive to make that happen and part of what's directive about Stroman as you be buying not only this year, but for two thousand twenty as well and finally Ernest OSA DO at Ernie c thirty seven seventy seven. Now that kaikal and kimbrel are signed does the market for guys like Bumgarner Bauer Will Smith. Tony Watson go up contenders. No longer have the leverage of just throwing money at their problems for starting pitchers like Bumgarner Trevor Bauer. No, I don't think so because I don't think they're going to be a lot of teams buying on starting pitchers, but on relief pitchers. Absolutely wrote a piece on ESPN dot com over the weekend about that. And about how they're going to the perception is going to be, there's going to be a major competition. Between contenders for some high end relievers like Brad hand Felipe Vasquez, and Sean Doolittle. Well done. With the tweets keeping coming all week long. Hashtag Bleacher tweets and that's it for today. Might thanks to Paul Goldschmidt to Todd Radim. Tim, Kirk kurkin in Josh macrey, who produces podcasts everyday. Keep David Ortiz new thoughts today.

Mornings with Keyshawn, LZ and Travis (HR 1)

"Monday morning. Everybody had mess Monday morning. You are listening to Sean Travis and special guests l z Granderson have today. Yes, yes, it's nice to see you l z oughta glitter off from gum badger. Here you're here that could have been we might have been last time. We saw you or you not thought I was going to destroy glitter bomb. I was actually wait dodge a glitter bomb. That's not a glitter glitter, but there's not really glitter bomb, shoot it in the air. Confetti when, when the glitter kids hug you and stuff and touch you the gritter easily transferred. So everybody's glitter. Interesting way to look at it. I'm getting out of the parade glitter free. That's just not going to happen. I was like the matrix trying to dodge new fun, though, videos of fun. It was Harrison videos. Thirty two fifty two. Brought brought brought brought it. Yeah. Yes, they were absolutely incredible. But as you guys know thirty to fifty two Yuji stays and stands for the entire duration of the match. They didn't calculate the marching part, so halfway through, it's an additional Steph. I told him next year we gotta start training training camp. Drinking, the alcohol in jumping up and down and chat and, and walk in at the same time little bit a little difference, little different. So you had the parade key, you're a professional Lubar driver that we and you made it out and one that's good. Well, maybe, maybe I gotta go get my finger check. But we'll see your finger playing catch with my son. Make it throw. He's Nerf ball got wit. I mean, there's obviously all the water in the ball in the pool. You know you played in the NFL. Finger wrong way. The heavy nerve ball, hit your finger the wrong way. Yeah. The name when he hits it in jammed it up joint had jammed. So I had to pull it out. But I think I could crack some in there because it's like. It's. It's the rotation of the ball in if this happened, it would make sense. I know right to you. To you makes less sense. Trust me. I'd catch what your hands like visit like diamond. Get your thumbs together make shot to do all that. And then took a dive on the last. Last run. So we'll see particularly clear I'd do you guys today by chance? But you said something to me just shook my head. I didn't I actually didn't believe you. It's true. I got nothing. I in a minute, so. Nice I feel good. You know, turns out, maybe sometimes you don't feel your best when you do that stuff flowing out there, just throwing it out there. Great game yesterday in San Francisco, the dodgers win yesterday. One the nothing and it was one nothing on a MAC Muncie home run early in the game and Madison Bumgarner pitcher for the giants who we know is one of the best pitchers in baseball, not having a great season. So far this year. But still, a very tough guy max Muncie takes him deep Muncie. Looks at the ball go into the bay. He's taking his time to go around the bases and Madison Bumgarner does what he does. And stares down and their chirping at each other. It was great. As a dodger giant robbery, homerun and a love watching Madison. Bumgarner absolutely have to take it. Here's the homerun. It's a deep field. Some words zero basis as thirteenth hole out of the season. One nothing I leave. Thanks for that. He turns on his heat or ninety two up and I don't know what Bumgarner got mad at me. No. It's gone like that. They're not gonna run out of the box. That's courtesy of spectrum sports net LA on baseball. I it's really stupid. So if I run like we did a year ago, I'm running around the dam basis to fast if I wait and see what's getting ready to have it in our tried around the basis, I'm moving to slow if I flip my bat is the problem like every single thing is problem when I celebrate. But if I throw you out, and I put my fist, it's okay if I if I hate you down. Right then? That's okay. But if I stared down is the problem I just say in you, not even gonna do nothing. No. You just go back tough. Will you hit my favorite part of the whole thing, might my favorite part of the whole thing is apparently, there's a range that you can run the bases in? That's okay. You can do to fast disrespectful, do it too. Slow right disrespectful. So there's very there's a window. The Madison Bumgarner finds acceptable to run around the bases. And, and it's stupid max Muncie. Hit a home run off a tough left handed pitcher, hit it into the water got his team off to a great start. And he's supposed to do what put his head down like he's embarrassed and go around the bases. It's a big hit. I wonder if I played the major league baseball how many times I've been hit by pitch several several. Suffer? My, my favorite parts stories actually, the fact that Madison Bumgarner. Dan pretenders if there was an invisible wall that prevented him from Mexican fronting maximum. See because I was like dog if you won't those smoke. There's nothing between you and him. You can go out there at any moment, and in give them that work if you really 'bout that life. But you just over there Chirpin, because max months, he's a big boy. Here's Madison Bumgarner after the game talking about the exchange. She had with max Muncie. He's running around the basis, here's Madison Bumgarner. I think about it. Let the kids play what, what everybody's saying, but. To let everybody be themselves into let me be myself. That's me. Yeah. Just as some five then walk. So do you go? L Z. Just I just assumed fight is anything else. Well, obviously not. The kids play next month. You've got to be these twenty seven years old. No key. No. He's I think he was reaching for a phrase there that the expression that major league baseball had was at last year, the year before when they were trying to lighten everybody. The blank up right was, hey, let the kids play, let them have a good time. Let them hit home runs. Let them style it a little bit. Let's let a little the personality these players come through. But dole serve it up, though. That's another thing as a pitcher. Dose, Irv it up silver platter? And then expect for the do not to go yard on you. I mean you can't you can't pitch a ninety plus my lower fastball high high and tight rate where he's where he's looking forward to drive it out of the park. It when it happens you get mad right? No. Look, the whole thing is stupid. He did the hardest thing there is to do in baseball. And that's hit a home run. He did it off of a good pitcher. And there's no shame in that there's no, there's no put your head down and go around the bases. Like you're in Paris that it's happening. He he celebrated it. He felt good about it. And that's fine. If Bumgarner doesn't like it pitch better. And if you still can't be with that, and you were memorial your reduce assume fun. They think go fight him. Don't end there and pretend that you're gonna fight him if you're that offended by his home run trot speed, then go punch him and see how that goes that, that was to me that was the most entertaining part in his too bad. Because the dodgers, especially from defensive side and you know, Walker beauty your guy Walker was just standing yesterday. But I just kept looking at the highlights over and over again, I was like going to visit good twenty seconds before anybody runs out there and comes between you and max von into basis, if you really were that offended you said Travis if you really wanted to get in his face about his pace of mounting the basis, he could have done it to me, you, just basically like a whiny little he wasn't gonna fight that was that's all posturing because of us go fight you to call him at first base if he was round and I. The second Tutu ran out there in teed off on or you had another two or three opportunities hit him in the chin would have ninety mile of our. Decided not to do that. Either look how ESPN describes it backflip sparked Bumgarner like somehow Madison. Bumgarner is the one that we don't need to offend the person that we need to tiptoe around because his sensibilities are the right ones. And if you don't if you don't. If you don't, if you don't mind the store with Madison Bumgarner that we're gonna have baseball look. This isn't over this, this will happen again. They're going to play each other. I don't know how many more times fourteen fifteen more times this year. Something will have because Bumgarner has to specially guys like you and me and Z and key. And we're talking about this and saying if you wanna fight him fight him now is kind of painted into a corner. Now he's kinda sorta gotta do something because of what he said. So we'll see how the whole thing plays out, but this is not over. You'll see these two guys go at it again. So Adam, you said that we're going to know who the birthday is this could be several different people. This Kaji Huey Lewis could be visibly of news. Michael J, FOX could be Michael J FOX. Is it their birthday, Michael J, FOX, right? Let's say is the atom who put new. Fifty eight yesterday. You gotta run down. Well, there is this to be older than fifty eight eight? Now, remember he has Parkinson's. So he looks a little bit. I'm not going that I'm going off. Years old, and he didn't TV since he was like twenty he was like twenty years old when I was to watching definition of a child actor yet, he was on family ties when he was early twenties. Right.

Christopher lloyd. Yes. Well, Michael J FOX is birthday. Fifty eight years old young today. Heavy birthday as birthday is brought to you by Jaguar land. Rover of Newport Beach off the Seventy-three towards the sea. Visit Land Rover Newport Beach dot com Land Rover and beyond while I'm reading that Nasseri supposed to be saying crazy stuff. Messing things up. You don't know this been rather, quiet and pleasant and I've Mabel to hear myself think and I, I can listen to the two of you guys talk. It's, it's extremely Hackel in Jekyll that's for sure. Extraordinary off. One is vacation, and the other is at the Rams media day today. Strange I feel the need to say something sexually inappropriate. Same thing just just say at four hundred. You have to do now is to every break. Every segment, that's what you have to do scary moment. I don't know. And you guys I was sitting there watching the UCLA Michigan college baseball game. And on the scroll underneath the screen comes across the former Red Sox player. David Ortiz was shot in the Dominican Republic. He's okay. He went to the hospital. He got some treatment, but a very, very scary moment for David Ortiz. Here's ESPN's Jeff passan detailing what happened to David Ortiz. It was interesting the way that this story unfolded, because initial reports out of the Dominican Republic said it was a robbery and David Ortiz had been shot in the leg. It turns out to in a lot worse than that in both areas, because let's, let's look at the damage I he had his gallbladder removed, there was liver damage. He had parts of his colon removed. He ended up getting shot in the back, and it was a clean wound that went all the way through his stomach and actually struck his friend in the leg. So. A gut shot of any variety is really, really dangerous really troublesome and scary. And the fact that they had to do some, some maintenance on his organs overnight, never is a good thing, but they say he is in stable condition, at this point, the bigger question and one that police still have not answered yet is about the motive why is a twenty five year old man walking up to David Ortiz from behind in shooting him at point blank range, was the intended target. And if so what was the reason behind it? Those are questions we just don't have answers to at this point. So obviously incredibly scary. He's sitting there talking to friends, somebody pulls up on a motorcycle and shoots it. I mean there was no confrontation. There was no robbery, there was no escalation of tension. There was just he's sitting there and the next thing you know, somebody shoots him in the back anyway. So you had to be city outside of a bar, maybe sitting like. At a bar top or something then. Well, I mean, number one, I'm assuming he's gonna make four recovery based on their reports, and his dad's saying that he's going to be with us for very long time. That's a good thing. And when you look at it, you never lot of weird things have been happening Dominican here over the last couple of weeks. You certainly don't ever want to see anybody put themselves in a position to be harmed this way. And in intil. We give further news on what exactly happened. We could sit here and speculate and around and around in circles and try to figure out because somebody's sitting there what your back turned, and they walk up to you. I mean big is big Papi years. You certainly can't have mistaken identity. Let's say Ortiz, pied piper DR that part of the analysis to me is the one that reeks the most. That's not mistaken identity. No. Everyone knows who big Papi is known who has been for the last twenty specially their right for that twenty years there at least. No. I mean you're not miss identifying David Ortiz. It'd be like, miss identifying Kobe Bryant here in Los Angeles. You're not you're, you know, exactly who it is, it says, thirties, say Ortiz was ambushed by a man who got up, a motorcycle and shot him in the back at nearly point blank range about eight fifty local time Sunday. Look like you heard Jeff passan say right there to this what I don't wanna make any of it sound trivial. But this was just. Oh, they I mean, they took out part of his colon. They there was liver damage that has gallbladder had to be removed. These were. I mean, this was a serious, serious injury, if they're in they're poking around in your liver, and taking parts of your Guinness attract. That's bad news. That doesn't feel they beat the do down though. The suspect they caught him Gordon over pretty good. So apparently he's in the hospital, and they're waiting for him to come to life. So they could question him if they haven't already but his face obviously swelled over pruned him up. They, here's Marley. Riveria peons revere, the latest on David Ortiz's condition that we have heard that easily or teeth who is one of David or keeps his brothers just came out and spoke to the largest contingent of local press that gathered at the clinic, and sent to the Mingo, where David has been in surgery for the past couple of hours. And he said that he is. Out of surgery. And at David is okay, this is coming straight from Illo Ortiz, David or his brother, we had heard from Leo Ortiz, David Ortiz, his dad, who in the beginning, when he first confirmed this to ESPN told us, he didn't have further information as to where David had been taken. Now, we know that it was in this particular clinic, able kansallis, and he has been treated and is currently out of surgery. So very good news. The outpouring of support has been massive all over social media. We actually saw a tweet recently from petrol Martinez saying that he was quite rejoiced that they've ever teased with out of danger. So great news coming out of the Dominican Republic. We still don't have more information as to what happened with the assailant, and really everything that's going on except that we have this video that ESPN has acquired, so that's morally Rivera from ESPN, and like she said, we still don't know exactly what was going on. But you will see I mean you know, the parts of this are gonna start to trickle in, because because of the fame of David Ortiz because. Of what happened because this was in. This was not something that was in the middle of nowhere. This happened in front of a whole bunch of people. So I would imagine that it's the time starts to go by. We'll start to get a piece of information here and there about exactly not what happened. But why it happened man? I'm grabbing stomach just thinking how, you know, bullet goes, right? Through is woman right through hit another person the second person wound by the same bullet so that being was traveling at a very high rate of speed. That's for sure. And fills he just went up to him in late may sure they was like, right. Like almost like the barrel touching them before he pulled the trigger. Like it's I mean it's very disturbing AVI do some tuning. Yeah. Yeah. Very disturbing this like he had intends to kill, you know, point blank didn't try to steal anything. So it just makes you wonder what offends the, the you know, some the suspect. Thought that David tees had committed against him or someone who may have paid him because it wasn't a robbery, so it seems if there was some offense that wanted precipitated that led to him wanting to kill David tee. We'll find out. I mean, this is it's not just some random act of violence against some person that we've never heard of before. David Ortiz is about as big of a deal in American Republic is anybody you're gonna find. He's one of the biggest heroes in that country. One of the most popular athletes ever. So this is this is the beginning of the story, not the end obviously. So do I blame for the musical selections that I don't understand it is that you were you responsible even more. More more. Soulful hop. Say no, there's been. Chain? Many shift. If you don't you don't recognize not yet, maybe later, if it keeps going. Yeah. Maybe sometimes they need to get into the middle of it. I'm like, oh, I think that might be this person. Have you heard of Mr. Lamar Kendrick? Lamar kid you go more Kendrick Lamar. I know the names. Nice man. This is I mean it was bad already. Really bad already. Now. It's worse to more horses died at Santa Anita over the weekend, one on Saturday. Formal dude broke down on Saturday. And then yesterday, truffle Lino was put down as well. That's two more dead horses over the weekend at Santa Anita. That's twenty nine dead horses since the start of the meat, which opened just after Christmas last year. So you're talking about in the space of five months and change twenty nine animals have died. I just don't understand. I don't get it. Like everybody keeps trying to explain this to me about them still running at the track. Wanted you just the whole thing down from start to finish. Just turn it into something else, or it, doesn't make any sense to me. Why you continuously put the horses out there on the track? Even though you don't this chance to somebody might check out. It's. Because to your point key shut the whole place down, and figure out exactly what's happening down scraping, all the way down to the concrete in Regis. Redo the entire place. If that's what's causing the horses to break, then they're not even entirely. Sure. Why these horses bringing down if not the dirt that they're running on into dividend this in the dirt. Then what could possibly be somebody's illegally doing something behind the Joe? No. You have to stop in. So the California horse racing board recommended that detracts is spend the remaining days of its meet. It's scheduled to end on June twenty third so about two weeks from now. However CNN eater management has chosen to continue racing. Call the damn meet off. It's two extra. I understand you've got revenues you got. I get it. There's people's livelihood who work who I don't know the racetrack but you've got to extra weeks you killed twenty nine horses in this twenty nine horses have died. You're not exactly sure why they're dropping at the rate that they're dropping. Wow. How could you continue to send the? Horses out there at this point. I don't understand what happened to pita. What I'm sure you'll be there throw paint on women that were the for coast, these New York Leicester's. Yeah. Where they Al was standing right next to one in New York on grind. Splash splash. Right. Only I was this is different. It just feels like if there's any moment, which Peter has an opportunity to go and make yourself. No, I think they did a little deal with two weeks ago. Probably. They were out there, but it wasn't massive protests it with some people that was part of whatever pita. And if like Hollywood pita doing their deal. I I don't know where they tweet their offense and then going to go back and doing their lives. They should absolutely one hundred percent shut the entire thing down the revenue couldn't be that much. I mean it's not you're not talking about eighty thousand people watching a race. So it's not like they're losing major money at the gates windows veneers. Being bought you wouldn't think you hotdogs, it's warm cokes, and there's people that are working there. I mean there are employees, but it just at some point, and you would have thought that the point would have been far far before, but I would think winning nine dead horse. I mean this is I would think the employee's Travis. Would understand that they have to shed it now for however they high because there's some bad things has been going on in this situation. It's just weird. I don't I mean maybe some mysterious weirdo running around injecting the horses. I have no idea, but yeah. I don't either. And I. But just falling apart though. That's kinda strange, but you don't know what's going on. I don't know what's going on Zee. You don't know. The problem is the people at Santa Anita. Don't seem to know what's going on. They keep talking about fixing the track. They keep talking about implementing new safety regulations and all of these things. And oh, okay. But none of these things have really fixed the problem they had a six week stretch where they didn't have any fatalities thankfully for the horses. But now two more it's twenty nine dead horses since Christmas. That's not that's not a weird fluke in math. That's there's something going on one. But their finger on has any big time horses. I mean that's the way like I mean like one in the lobby. I don't know. Yeah. I don't I don't know which horse. Which ones on? Secretary kerry. It's been gone a minute. He's been told him Aguire jockey or something like seabiscuit. He missed biscuits. Also with that. That was a movie. So that doesn't count Mr. Mr. Ed television show. I don't know. I don't know who's out trying traveler. They have swimming as he somewhere schilling. He's tees rested, because they don't score touchdowns anymore. Nice shea right there. Like an he's renting because they don't score touchdowns. Any my wrong? No plan. Travel when I with the USC the horse tongue stayed out he's down. I can we get a break go? The, the ownership group of not just that track. But a number tracks around the country, apparently issued a statement or or had a lead in the LA times on the heels of some of these deaths or the one of my employers. Just another one of my employers, just sort of reiterating, the fact that they're doing everything they can to try to ensure the safety of the horses. Quote, approximately one point five billion dollars has been invested to modernize upgraded the race tracks across America. So you can't necessarily say negligent because clearly if the one point five billion dollars is, is true, they are doing the county from a financial perspective. Having having gotten sent send Anita yet waiting that was, including Senate Senator have the have put that money into town. Need already? Yeah. As far as far as I can tell from the story here that the upgrades have been made and ninety that, that they did work with some formation of pita, it hooks in order to help ensure in terms of safety regulations and things of that nature. I just wanna see some protesting white. It's not just at the horses are dying. It's that they don't exactly know why the horses are dying. That's the bigger problem. Hey, hey. You had blown hopefully lost his phone. Oh, god. Did you see that pitches? Yes. See. Yeah. Hopefully his phone is. Did you Caribbean ocean unsee God? Immediately delete. I did it mmediately. I saw it and I went. Nope. What is don't even want that type of behavior on my phone? Somebody coming to me and say, so you knew this guy. Yes, exactly. I'm good, only no questions. Don't wanna know know I've worked with him, but beyond that we really didn't talk to each other. I got a good excuse where you know, I'm really only here part of the time. Yeah. I don't even worse. That's like my fourth John prioritizing way down the list. What you're talking about g fight. All right. Tonight game five of the NBA finals in Toronto. Why no chance to close the warriors out, and I don't think anybody thought we were going to be here where we're going into game five with the raptors chance to close this thing, I not not many people did I mean I is it over? Are we done? Is there any chance that the warriors can crawl back into this thing? I mean, we saw the warriors give up a three one lead a few years ago. Can they flip it? Can they do it to? The is a man, and everybody say the warriors don't need make an appearance tonight. If he appearance, Dan. I believe that the warriors win this game and they bring it back for game six. They bring it back home. If he plays if he doesn't play, then I would probably say is probably a wrap it, it's not only if he plays he plays. And he's Kevin Durant. I mean, if he's out there on one leg hobbling around like we saw kevon looney tried to go and game four. And it was it was a brave up. He's trying. I'm not criticizing him at all. But you could tell he was hurt man. He couldn't he. Couldn't get his arms above his win from a book and show the plan. That's what I mean. So he was badly affected by his injury, as you would expect he had a broken bone for God's sake, and you turn around and you're playing a couple of days later, you wouldn't expect him to be right. Kiddie and played the month. So the idea that he's just going to show up and be full, Kevin Durant. If he shows up at all, I think, is a little ambitious. If you even get Kevin Durant at sixty seventy percent. That might be a nice little bonus right now. But is that enough is sixty percent of Katie enough to beat the raptors who, by the way? It's not just the Golden State's hurt that obviously is a huge part of it. They've been good co is been on another planet in this series. I the thing with Katie is that you can't take a chance on him getting hot. So that means you still even if he's not one percent. You still have to guard him like he's one hundred percent because he might still just go off, if you're not careful. So just as presence alone Travis and key force, the raptors do something different defensively, which may. Make things a little bit easier for clay and for stuff in a right now. The ought to have to do is concentrate on clan Steph because they don't have a third person because Draymond green appearance overrated. I didn't notice already to Syria dog. I thought you just weren't get your up -tunities any looking at ninety looking at the basket thought you sacrifice your office with a better team. Now you ain't got offense on. I didn't know that. So all you do is gar clay and Steph now but if leaves katie's out there, then these, they have to make sure that keeps somebody's spy and making things mid, perhaps a little bit easier for stuff in clay in thing is is. You know, kind of Lori is obviously play a tremendous serious when when you look at his production in the playoffs and a pass people have criticized him. But now all of a sudden, he certainly plan at a level where he becomes that, you know, second half type guy. Yeah. What you mean? You didn't make a cream number two. Wise one wise to set. Point. Gotta give you two. He might turn into a pumpkin like he just, you know, really. Well, I don't think pumpkin is in the cards at this now. If you tonight tonight as a close on life for them at home, right? It's a close on that you can get tight. I've seen I've seen coaches and players get an e situations. They can't shoot a BB out get so tight. You know, that's the that's the God on a true. So you don't know what you're going to get out of him. Now obviously Kawais bit any situation before he's played in big time playoff championship games. So I'm not I'm not worried about him. But some of those other guys, you know, they have has played really, really well surge could get to this moa such a worry about in because he's searching buckle eight points. I mean no one's lips game four flip game for. He was the guy that got a goal and got a couple of rebounds. Got a couple of put bags got a couple of short little jumpers in the lane. He he's not quite what's making go. Why he's given them a. They. All tall, his cO. Why six seven eight seven feet uneven cmih seems like a six to do. No, no, no. I know. I couldn't figure them like is he six seven six eight because he just he just he, he moves like a smaller guy into gets into the paint. Then when he gets into the paint, he becomes six nine and be strong. You know so that's why I was like he can't do anything with them. Can't can't do anything with Kevin Durant gets on the floor and all the night watch. I'll go state here Steph curry talking about Katie and wanting to get on the court singer frustrating in general, and to be, obviously everybody every team wants to be a full strength at the biggest moment of the season because. Yes, what you build towards. And you almost feel for Kevin say, you know, I'm sure he wants to plan the finals like this is what every basketball player wants to wants to experience. So injuries or unfortunate all the way around rather, who they happen to. Just the timing is. Do you think that the guys in the warrior locker room that are not Kevin Durant, or I don't even know the right word? Isn't that confused not? But something along the lines of the Kevin Durant has been in and out of the lineup. Or, or maybe he'll go maybe he won't go. Maybe we'll get him for game for. Maybe it's game five like even tonight he's listed as questionable, and we'll see a not knowing or do, though. And we're just not being told about it because it seems like they've almost been waiting for the Calvary to come back in as well. And have Kevin Durant. Get them back over the hump and not knowing whether he's coming or not seems to be something that they've had to deal with. This is the first time I believe he's been questionable. Everything else is except he's out. He's out. He's out, but they of they haven't said, no. But remember, remember, remember, would because he was questioned. When you and I we're gonna play on that none on them. He said, no to K D questionable to boogie boogie wind up plan. And I think this is the same thing. We're going to see what Kevin Iran question. Questionable. He wise a plan in absolute -solutely, if you're in the locker room, you know, if you're a player, you know what the deal is because I say is feel good. You straight play tonight. Don't say nobody in. That's kind of what that conversation is. They're going to need them. I mean, they say and we saw them when they beat the rockets, they go right through Portland and it's like okay they you're going back to the Klay. Steph dream on wears. Everything's fine. Everything's clicking. They need Kevin. And he wants it this way. Of course, he does this -solutely. I love it. He can flip the if a certain way out there to know I love and plays and they win and they go back to Golden State and all of a sudden they grab one there. And now Kevin Durant isn't just a guy that jumped on the team that was already seventy three win team. Kevin Durant is the reason that the warriors dynasty continues thing. That's so interesting used they were dynasty, and I was gonna say shit, and I was like this is a dynasty. But this is the fakest dynasty, you and this is why you're one. The bronze shows up no kyri. No, Kevin love. They win a championship. Your to everybody's healthy. They lose championship your three and four. Everybody was kicked out and got hurt stuff hurt. Stop. He got hurt. Got kicked out I do second year. Yes, you second year dream on missed a game in a seven game series. But it has Steph was yelling screaming. I'm back the series before, just screaming not yelling. And he didn't and hitting shots to see the series before. I'm back. I'm back have any got up on that thing. And that thing happened to him. He wasn't back anymore. You're three and four K D your five. You don't have k b and you're down three one. Near five z to be. I mean they've gotten to the dynasty. I think we make a little bit of a mistake in thinking that dynasty is nothing but just ripping off championships. It's ripping off championships, and being in a position to win them Lang library. Bron James is a dynasty his self. Yes. On dynasty, if you're getting them, and you're in the Munif you miss one ear there, because like you said about the Cavs in the first year they were busted up. You look at the cat you look at the wars right now, they're busted up. There's extenuating circumstances in all of these, even if we go back to Chicago, Chicago. If you go back you go back to the bulls, and Chicago days, though, six championships has so many different people in the roster. I mean, they went from from Luke Longley, Bill Wennington to, to Bill Cartwright curfew to Oakley. I mean it was just different players. But the main stay was pipping in Jordan. Everybody else was kind of interchangeable pieces much like Golden State, you go to five straight championships, even though you're not gonna win all five. You get three or five four to five that's a dynasty.

Doodoo Prakan noodle sewing machine day whenever I saw the machine come on cried because I knew my mom was gonna try to make my clothes. Your clone. You know, your mother always want to try to make a quilt or something. Can you just go by skills like that? Yeah. Yeah. Well, you know, I think a lot of women that probably grew up in that timeframe at age, you know, worked in factories and things like that. So they knew how to Seoul in those, you know, those things, but anyway, headline of the day, Disney gets permits for marvel theme park at great adventure park, California adventure park in Anaheim, Orange County area Z, and they're gonna roll it out. So it's marvel your moral guy you work for marvel do will you be attending the cutting of the ribbon. Ceremonial shovel into the ground carpet of. I don't know. Listen, what I do know is that when you look at the top ten films of all time, I think, at least half memorial movies. So this is not a bad financial bed when you have two of the film's marble films, so far this year both Grover billion dollars and his only June. Do you think they're gonna have a ride? They're like shows Black Panther beginning, captain America. Probably probably not. But Disney's obvious get that joke. By the way. Creative when you think of bad. Yeah. Disney spending a lot of coin in terms of the theme park deals. They obviously just opened up the Star Wars at Disney. Now, this is. Chance to see that yet. Somebody where he's on a waiting list for, like three months from now waiting lists. Yeah, you gotta make a reservation. That power of I looked over the gate, the last time I was at the cow over the fence little flap in the. That. But that's it. The flop Machaca slide, you know, we could. I think they might stop you even you. Yeah. Sneaky and no one noticed that you're here. So there to get into the theme park, I use my pass. Yes. Or what do we call it? Our Disney are use my dizzy path. Once I get over there. I think this role, they're letting the Disney passes are they've been walked out. So I did. So there's a lot of red calendar. Oh, god. I saw it. I couldn't I had to pay for Disney. But I use it for great adventure which was fine. I mean still cut me fifty percent off. So it's good. So they're going to have the Star Wars, people on the Disneyland side and the moral people on the California adventure side, you got, like warring universes in the Disney parking lot. You know what adults go to these movies? Adults our generation grew up on Star Wars grew up on marvel comics. So as I said, it's a smart bet because whereas Mickey and goofy our children are into you actually maybe get adults without any kids at all spending tons of money to be part of these two big projects. So there's plenty of that. There's plenty of Comecon is not feel kids lose the last time you've been to Disneyland. I know you workforce, but wasn't protects fem- park. It's about nine months for me. Well, you right there, you're right down there. My kids still. Enjoy going. Minute spin a minute adults running around there. It's mostly adults. Say I was here is those running around. No, it, it, it'll work this down, not worried. This downtown Disney in Orlando. I mean I could have stock in that place because the bars are sitting right there, little boy, run around do his thing. Check in with me every half hour while pop sits here and get this Cosmo down. Parenti by ills e listen to that headline in the morning. You're listening to ks PIN Los Angeles. Trump, you kid off. What's wrong with you? Well to man with a plan is what's going on right there? The it's official. We found out yesterday the Kevin Durant tore his achilles. He had it repaired in New York. He had surgery on it. And Steve Kerr says that they never thought that they were going to get to this point. Here's Kerr discussing Kevin Durant yesterday. Kevin checked all the boxes. And, and he was cleared to play on by everybody involved. Now. Would we go back and do it over again? Damn right. But that's easy to say after the, the results, I what know when we gathered all the information our feeling was the worst thing that could happen would be a reinjuring of the calf and, and that was that was the advice and the information that we had. And at that point, once Kevin was cleared to play. You know, he was comfortable with that we were comfortable with that. So the achilles came as a complete shock. I'm not I Steve Kerr seems like an honest guy trustworthy, guy, whatever. But I just I have a really hard time believing that one thing had nothing to do with the other. And if I'm hearing him correctly. Maybe I'm just not hearing it the way he meant it. But that the worst case scenarios a reentry of the calf that it seemed that from the moment that injury happened in the Houston series, the way it happened the way, he reacted the way that we've seen the ice pack on his body that this was something that was quasi achilles related. And at the achilles blew out didn't surprise me at all. And that was a risk when they sent him back out there. It was a it was a different. If you go back to Houston serious and you go back to when he got hurt in Toronto, you could tell there was, there was a difference one. He walked off on his own power when you have a key issue at the that's tough to walk off under your own power. You saw in Toronto he had to get help to go to locker room. Yeah. It completely. Well, it was a more severe. It was it was more severe, but even less severe. You steal. I need help walking off because you can't put the weight down on that on top of that Steve Kerr, went on to say they checked all the boxes what he means by that is doctors at, at Golden State team. Doctor off team doctor second opinions by Kevin Durant, and his crew. Kevin Durant business manager in his crew. So everything was checked it in when you say, and then when he goes on to say that. It's they thought the worst thing that could happen is reoccurring injury of the cath is true because there's no way that you would think that sure accusees would be affected by a calf when you've been practicing in training and rehabbing and doing all of those things everything was fine. Everything was fine because if it's his ACL on that knee, and not as Aquiles is that the reason he tours ACL. No, it's not. But I, maybe I know you. Everything that I thought it was an achilles to begin with the way he responded, the way that the injury happened. Not that it ruptured the way that it appears that it did this time. But rather just his reaction to it the way that he was being treated the way that he, they eased him back into all of those things led me to believe that I if a pitcher has an elbow injury, and he misses a month and you bring him back in and he blows his elbow out the first time he pitches again. And you say, well, one had nothing to do with the other. I'm like, come on, man. Of course. Of course, they have everything to do together. And that's what this Kevin Durant thing feels like. Well, as I said yesterday, I couldn't find any. Reported doctors saying a calf injury leads to a torn achilles. In fact, I saw plenty of doctors say the opposite, but not that one. Mrs just coincidence in the world, but. The question is did the initial injury really was about the achilles to begin with. I mean that to me is a question while I missed, not, not live misdiagnose, how you going to be mixed diagnosed. But, but okay, it does happen all the time. There's no question about how you going to be misdiagnosed by high level. People are looking at the back of your leg going in. And I'm sure he had an MRI on his calf. I'm sure he added an entire lick. I'm sure I'm sure I really bad guy for second. Yeah. Okay. Maybe it was Lee sinister. Maybe they knew exactly what it was. Maybe they knew exactly that it was one of those things I use the rubber band analogy that day. Okay. Look that thing's going I it's, it's going, it's going, it's not going yet, but it's going to go. It might be a week. It might be in a month. It might be in two months that thing's going, we're going to have to fix it anyway. Let's roll now Chris. Car. No. I just I just don't think he was, it was Senator, I think, at worse was a misdiagnosis, because, now you open yourself OSU you'll be for everything that you could think of when you start playing around with once career like that. I mean, yes, doctors have missed on things. Doctors of lift tools, people's stomachs stitched them back up. I've seen it, so, yes. People make mistakes. But when you look at this situation, Kevin Durant was healthy enough for pre game. He was healthy enough one on one practice. Prior to the game. Us healthy to go out there and do basketball acclimated things to give them the, the, the notion that he was one hundred percent on the go. They all checked off the signed off on. He was ready to go. It was fine. He was fine, but they'll use your car. Analogy key. I've had a mechanic, tell me, you know, your car starts making that we're not quickly cook. Like you take look, it's gonna go drive until it goes, because I'm going to have to fix it anyway. You might as well get you. Until it goes, and then we'll fix it. So drive it for another might be five thousand miles and might be a bit and go did it already. Here, your hip phones, Wendy, you over here at Clint around different ride today is just I just have a hard time believing that when you have that particular vehicle that you put that kind of permanent potential, permanent damage to it. If this was like use some bum like me. Yeah. Romeo and see what happens. That's what I say would him. They very careful. Hi. They handled him dealt with him. Let's like they deal with clay clay was ready to go in his mind. But they looked and they say, you know, it may why don't you sit tight? You're not quite ready to go and for the better, it looked like that particular decision has worked out for the Golden State Warriors, because they gave him an extra game of risk now maybe clay's injury was far less severe and much less likely to do something major like. Kevin Durant was maybe again. I'm throwing stuff against the wall here. I'm being the conspiracy theorist in the room. Maybe they're thinking he's leaving anyway. He's, he's going. Fit together here. I mean I'm not going to rule that out. Why ruled it out because you always gonna be a little bit of a door opening for nefarious activity that you just don't think is possible. But I tend to think that this was a many misdiagnosis in terms of what they knew. But the way they characterize we did not incorporate the possibility of the injury happening to the achilles. And it could have been a overall lower leg injury. And they called it a cab strain, but they recognize that he was a lower leg injury. That was primarily about the calf but could have some implications for kidneys but not to this degree. I wanted to go that far, but I'm not willing to say they knew that Killys was was on the French and said, let's roll on even get three more games out of this thing with Kevin is when he got hurt the first time, he never grabbed his Keeley grant calf right? He did grab his calf, even though it looked like an Akita. He grabbed his cabinet hobble, the second time around he initially grabbed his his achilles. But then he moved his hand slightly up to the Cavs it rolled up to know but I'm just saying he was like oh, and that burn cane, so have you strained calf a half. So you know as soon as you. Yeah. You rose, it goes grab right there. And that's what he did. I know you ain't never straying too cafes. You ain't got. Morning show with Keyshawn l z and Travis coming up next four. Hey, helps key open his morning statues. Chris, why do you always pick like the disco versions is the Star Wars disco version by a huge hit a number one, hit in nineteen seventy seven I okay? But like the theme song from Star Wars about anyway. So Mitchell McKinnon on Twitter are good time, listener, fun time listener anyway, he checked in saying he's been a galaxy's edge and always says the real Star Wars fans will love it. Now. I don't know that means exactly but he says it's awesome. So somebody like me wouldn't love it. Probably not since you think it's dark Vader and not Darth Vader, do you ever lightsaber? He's got a lightsaber. Okay. Lives ivory white light like little candies. No, those are those. I haven't had those years time, they're pretty good. It's still pretty good. The yellow ones. The best one. Yeah. That's the red one is watermelon. That's good to know the green ones, watermelon, the red ones cherry. Whatever it takes. So there's Katie. He's in the hospital getting chilies fixed. There's AD. He may be on the move to LA or maybe Boston. We'll see. And we got a little bit of news. In the David Ortiz story yesterday member. He got shot a few days ago in the Dominican Republic. And a handful of guys have been arrested in the Dominican Republic that there was a plot to murder David Ortiz, where a group of men were paid eight thousand dollars. Seventy eight hundred seventy eight hundred dollars dollars murder David Ortiz. It was thirty seven thousand eight hundred thirty dollars thirty thirty thirty there. Come on now. Is that each person gets that or is that they were gonna split splitting split between four to six people right there? I've seen four people. I've seen five I've seen six there's been a handful of different amounts about a geopot suspect one hundred thousand pesos there's the round number. So there is that a lot. I don't know. Seven eight hundred dollars represent show people. He's not Dominican. He's not Dominican pesos pesos. Still. That's what they call it. Your conversations then already in progress. Jeez. Okay. I'll ask the question that we don't quite know the answer to yet. Why was somebody plotting to murder David Ortiz? There were Yankee fans probably not. Yeah. Probably now think you go try to take somebody's life based on baseball. Because a random act of violence, sadly, happens a robbery attempt, he'll doesn't happen attempt gone. Wrong hit happy happens plot to murder one of the most famous citizens of that country doesn't have that doesn't happen in, in its in. It's so weird because you be ports. Got two guys in a car. Two guys on a motorcycle. So it's like and on top of that, you know, somebody was explaining something to me, and I, and I didn't think about it, even though I watch all these weird. Interesting investigative channels and things of that nature, a police officer friend of mine shares apartment in Calabasas. We were just talking. So I mean, we're talking we're talking about the Ortiz situation and was saying, well, why wouldn't they try and aim? Once it just go straight to the head is back was turned. He said, the head is the hardest shot because you can move in, if you move in, you miss where your body is back as turned his body. So big you just. Walk right up only point blank in you hit him and Oregon, or something like that. Or rupture got his liver. They had to remove his gall, bladder, the head to take out a piece of his colon. I mean, this was these he was seriously wound. So I was asking, you know start talking. He says. Wow. Would they do that? And it was a number of things that came up in. You say okay, it had to be some sort of retaliation for something. What that something is. We don't know. You know, you, you, you have no idea if it's a situation where somebody meaning many years ago was mad at him. And he finally got back into the Dominican and a tie Davidson town. He's over here. L K now. Let's do it. You don't you just don't know. But it certainly like you said it just is not a robbery going back because they didn't even try to tempt to still anything, what I from what I know big Papi likes to wear Jiri, do certain things that will attract the tension that didn't happen. And then you say okay, well, what is it? What is that? And it'll come out whatever. It is. I'm sure I'm sure because they caught those dudes like that. I mean, say they unraveled this, quote unquote plot in a day or two. Once they caught one. Talk. Right when he was badly beaten, but they waited for the swelling go down for they started the conversation. They weren't beat him again, if you didn't say, and they probably going to beat him again, if he did say sound sort of four hundred thousand Dominican pesos translate to seven thousand eight hundred and thirty dollars. US. I'll just love that thirty dollar part. I wonder how they come up with that number. That's the thing four hundred thousand around. That's a round of your shoe. Yeah, that's true. Sounds about. But I'm think guess, man, I that, that, obviously goes a long way. I've never been to the Dominican. I don't know. A lot of nice until all the people in the hotel started dying from strange illnesses. And David tees gets shot. This is the thing that's so crazy about it and not that. I mean David Ortiz is one of the most famous people in that country this just wasn't somebody that was doing something that they weren't supposed to do. Somebody got upset by in put a number on their head. And somebody was at all do it. This is David Ortiz. Everybody knows who David Ortiz is everybody knows that the top Dominican baseball players are athletes, or diplomats. Whatever ecorse. They do. So that's why that's why it makes you scratch your head. And you wonder what exactly would would make someone want to go out and try to. Take off one of the takeout one of the most famous people in the country. Well, obviously, when you look at them out of money that was offered and how they wanted to take them out. You can assume that it's like a drug Lord or a crime Lord. It has to be someone with that amount of resources to be able to just off four hundred thousand Dominican pesos and not blinking. I so. I think if you, if you start from there is very easy to figure out who he kind of cross paths with, because there's just aren't that many, you know, super-rich Dominican drug lords you can't take out David or David Ortiz four thousand pesos doesn't seem to be that much. Because according to this website, combo meal at a fast food restaurant is three hundred fifteen pesos that's going that eight thousand dollars eight thousand dollars. But money stretches further in a Dominican rent on the high end is thirty one thousand pesos a month, four thousand faces ain't going that far chilling the pen. House for one year. And then you broke a year, six months, especially if you keep getting that combo meal. I mean, but, you know, you still got it, you got to ten months, and then, like, eleven month, they asked where the money at you'll have it in a month ago victim. Boneless chicken, one hundred thirty three pesos in the Dominican, how much is it for the bone that's going to be more? Always more the flavor and style read somewhere though. One of the individuals that was apprehended was one of the, the main like the creators of the, the whole thing, the master master here, the ringleader mastermind behind. That's why I read somewhere. But when they're man, I, I don't know if he was the mastermind behind the whole thing was masterminded put plastic. Another country goes down master mind, is a really interesting term because they went up to him in a crowded place where people everywhere the guy didn't get three. That's smart, actually. Get caught. Could be like a match scramble. He can get lost in the crowd. See that to me that may send don't you want to get him in his car on the way home or something? I mean what I don't want to get him at all. Actually. You're saying if crowded place once the panic of everybody, what the hell was that, but you're gonna see running, you're gonna get him? No, you mix in because everybody's run. It didn't work. Oh, that's kind of what the hail right Volkswagen? Call his one point three million pesos. Nice gulf. In trouble, though. I've never seen a Volkswagen Golf it DR before. No UMass fan. We're. Offensive but he's at he's recovering after I guess he had a second surgery in Boston. And so he's recovering pretty good. His wife's it. So, you know, the dude actually he's all right. He didn't get that beat up. I'm gonna pitch now sit in the car. Talk. Yeah. Big O gas. Visit talk, it's a cut teases getting organs removed. Right. You got a fresh cut, though. He must do you think? Known. He was gonna end up in the news due with no line, right? Anthony Davis may be on the move sooner than later, and there are two teams in the Lakers are only one. Coming up next. Travis goes for Olympic gold in the butterfly Scott category on the morning show. Travis. I told you not to bite into that yet. He couldn't wait. He couldn't wait. You're gonna put a sandwich down in front of me and say donated you guys haven't gotten very well yet then. For the air, I can take another bite on the air. I know. So yesterday key, Texas that he was working on a pool pork sandwich. But key, it's not quite pulled pork. Is it? No, it's not pool pork. It is a, a shred. It is shredding. Travis is throwing the strike is a instead of a barbecue pork salvage. It is shredded carrots in replace of the pool pork. So you all this from scratch, you made the swamp. You made the everything everything eating everything from scratch straight straight from the crib, obviously how long take vegans, it took me about thirty minutes. Total, I would probably say from start to finish, so travis's now had two very healthy bite. Yes, I've got. I set you the text back. You, you brought me the cake pie the pie the pie and the pie the pie and there was a lemon lemon panel. Let me down cake. That's what it was both. Very good. And I'm thinking, okay, Jerry meet in apple pie. There's no meat in lemon. Pound cake. Right. So. Right. Okay. Yes. When you send a making pulled pork sandwiches only. It's not pork. It's carrots. I'm like get out of here. No way. Yeah. That's really good. It's good. It's legitimately good. It's not kind of bothers me that it is good. It's like why have I been doing it the other way for this did look, you know, alone tastes cook pool? Pork. You put in the crock pot. And you leave you come back eight hours later, and it's done. No shred that doesn't happen with my shredded carrots. Yeah. Put it in a salty pan for ten minutes. Maybe to get the get the get nice as soft as a sausage cooking. And then I dump them into the sauce mix, it all up together in the same. It's the same thing I shredded to cabbage. I added the apple cider vinegar pickle put the tech until he liked that, right? I put the slot again at west supposed to be it's. Pork. Different. It doesn't mouth feel of pulled view because that fat, but it tastes like pull tell you realize. About us to taste looking for fat, my mouth. Well. It's good you go. He'll go to the dark site. He's not going. I'm not at the dark side. I just eat certain things. What did I, I wish I would've met nineteen hundred nine key eating all the fat chicken restaurant? I'm not kidding one of the first days I was here. I don't know if there's you telling the story arosh Chris when you guys all went out to eat, and you attack the play shrimp. Right. Like, okay, so KiKi not gonna get along good. Because if you're gonna go after a plate of food like that, that's kind of how I roll, and now you're telling me all this vegan stuff, and this is quite good. It's good attack. The vegan stuff as well. I'm not being but I when I eat it. I eat food. That's good. Yeah. Your plate go either. You didn't eat breakfast. You hungry. Didn't eat breakfast. Good Friday edition of chef player key tomorrow. I think we know what the recipe. That's this is coming from a certified compulsive eater. That's really good. Thank you. Well, is it nutrisystem? No. Doc, you, you must be gone away. How did you? How did you work shade in on me on that pay off the tees? The Celtics and the Lakers are in on Anthony Davis recording reports the pelicans are talking to both of those teams. And it feels like there's a bit of a horse race to get this done. I the Celtics are working with something that the Lakers don't have to deal with, and that is Anthony Davis reportedly does not want to go there. Here's wochit talking about whether or not the Celtics would still make a deal for Anthony Davis Vos on a rental basis in Boston. All along has been determined to still use the assets. They have to get it. An Anthony Davis trade, it was complicated. Vacation by the fact that Kyrie Irving has seriously considered leaving Boston in free agency. They had hoped that getting AD having kyri would commit with commits both on the sign long-term, but Boston so far has been undeterred. They've heard this, since the fall, Anthony Davis senior said that to Ramona Shelburne early this year Rich Paul has privately told the Celtics that, but Danny aines so far is stayed in this in these conversations. And he. He has been engaged with David Griffin in New Orleans. Remember, Dave Griffin came up in the Phoenix Suns organization, underneath Danny age, probably is close to him as any GM in the league in Danny could do it for a variety of reasons. Those that you mentioned that there's the ability to kind of jam up the Lakers in their money, and everything that goes along with that. And I think this is the part that we kind of skipped over. They could make a deal for Anthony Davis. And as they get closer, the deadline if it's not working out the way that they wanted to work out flipped him again. Yeah. Flipping McGinn for food that would give you what, what is somebody's on the cusp there, there, maybe were championship. Maybe we're not. This is the difference to put us over the top. We know we're not going to keep him and we'll give you a pick or a player. And if we can get a championship or get real close to one. It's worth it for a couple of guess what you did all that to steal not nearly the value that you gave away Tatum gave away Brown gave away your pick for you. Given all this stuff away on day one. By the time you get the day three you're getting back what you get. Eating nothing back by doing that trying to just screw over the Lakers. I mean that doesn't make a whole lot of sense. And what, what it take a chance when a guy who Travis if I told you if I walked in, and I said, you know what I mean? I'm not signing back here next year because I don't want to be around you. I just don't want to be, or I don't like you. I don't wanna be around you. I don't like this building. I don't like the way that people look at me when I walk in here. I don't like the fact that you laugh at my food. I hate it. Right. And then all of a sudden, Dan, in scars doesn't matter. We're gonna we're here. We're gonna where can I want to try that analogy a little bit of a different way? Let's say you've said that because the previous guy was here and you I don't wanna be here anymore. I don't like maybe I did say. Okay. Somebody says, hey Travis we want you to come in there and do that show with Keyshawn, and I'm thinking you know what? I believe that I do. Good job. I believe the key is going to, like me believe that if I if I do three months worth worth of shows with key, I might be able to change his mind might be able to change his mind, and he might like me enough to change as I might be willing to better myself. And that's what the Celtics are doing that. I understand you don't wanna be here. I understand the already made up your mind. But if I can get a win. I can get on the morning show. I can bring this guy in here. Maybe leave, maybe you don't. But if I can get a win in the short term and maybe change your mind was Scott gonna fire because I'm a bounce. See you see what I'm saying? I'll go leave. Because I already told them no matter what they do. I'm not staying in at the end of the day, they still bring you in, in our told you because they think you're going to be able to convince me. And then when I walk. Did all of a sudden everybody it doesn't it? You cannot make that move at an executive running a business. You can't just all of a sudden because say, wow. I don't care what saw case if you're right then. Why is down? Why are the Lakers not saying look, we'll give you a law in the pick or whatever I'm just picking a guy we'll give Ingram in the pick. Yeah. Well, we want this. No. Because right now right now and people don't wanna believe it out there in the NBA world, the Lakers really do hold the cards to all it in. Why are they offering so much? They not offering so much. Why not done? They're not offering enough yet their whole in back. They're only giving them a pick and they give him three players pick in two players. The combination of the two players, we don't really know we know there's three names that are out there, but we don't know that combination of those three names now do we? Who did he on really want to do a morning show with the answer could startle you next? Susan. Can you make that for me? Too far into my kitchen. I cook at the house. Oh, she's. Go. Can you make that bit for? She would love that. It's good. It's very good. I like filling light at I get done eating dinner. I hate that feeling nap. Miss around. Yeah. Feels good. Feeling sit back on the couch put you kick your shoes off tip. Your head back out. I don't know how to undo out every now and there's no quite weekends. I'm out eat meat on the weekend. So, well, my mom made she made a liver on using gravy, and mashed potatoes last night. I couldn't do it. I don't. Live in a more. Yeah, can't eat the heavy anymore. All right. So the Lakers and the Celtics are in on Anthony Davis. Here's whoa describing, which of those two teams has better assets to get a deal done. I think bosses assets are more fluid, it's very clear and ally who you're gonna put in a deal but there's really two ways to go in Boston. If Boston is willing to Jason Tatum, and maybe not a lot outs or perhaps a deal built around Jalen Brown. And then a bevy of those future Boston picks, but the one thing New Orleans if Tatum did get into an offer. He's the best available player for the pelicans. That's what scares me would at the very end there. They're all the players who are talking about Jason Tatum. Jalen Brown, Brandon Ingram and Lonzo ball and Kyle Kuzma of all of them if we're ranking them best or most attractive prospect on down, Jason Tatum's at the top of that list, according to most NBA people. I would imagine that David Griffin probably feels the same way. I if I'm the Lakers, I'm not letting Danny aines or the Celtics put together something that maybe isn't even in. Best interest, but maybe they're thinking, bleep it, I'm going to do it anyway. I don't need that. That's why I think the Lakers need to be really cautious key about going in there in holding something back for fear that the Celtics, don't hold back. They get it done even if it's a short term rental. But okay, I think that they know in their communications because in all it is the Lakers are also communicating and the Celtics or communicate as well as the pelicans Rich Paul, the agent, four AD in the bra. They're having these communications, he's involved, whether he wants to be a not because they've got to be able to talk to him to talk to the client to be able to communicate to find out what everybody's thinking. And at the end of the day, it all balls down to that player in how they play feels about being moved to the team that's trying to acquire him. And I understand that deal. I understand that Griffin in and, and Jenny age have a relationship going all the way back to Phoenix and air close and all that's. Great. All it's good. But at the end of the day, it's the Joe magic pelicans in his Anthony Davis. They the ones that have to communicate okay because you would be a full in a half. And I don't think Danny is to put the Boston Celtics organization in such dire need in jeopardy. To think that one you're gonna lose kyri because he just he kyri Irwin just fired. His agent people are out there rumors within rumor mill saying he's got a high rock nation who is connected to the Brooklyn nets as well as just. Leaving Boston so high relieves. Right. So you get rid of kyri. You're gonna you're gonna bring in AD. And you get rid of Brown, you're going to get rid of Tatum. What you got left? Leff. Where's what are you have lift, you know, you depending on Horford? I mean not. Not Al Horford. What's the Gordon Hayward? Gordon Hayward you get about his name. His name was in a trade deal. Okay. Okay. Trade deal to what you got left. But it was either worth sort of thing. In other words, when, when rose about how nimble the Boston Celtics are this what he's talking about. They have a lot of talent now I didn't mesh well for variety of reasons kyri, but they have. I guess reasons for. Trying to our shuttle, so. Lake. I'll say. Chilled about you. Telling me that they're so deep talent pool. Hold on there, so deepening, talent pool that they can afford to give up four or five air players to acquire Anthony Davis. And they still go make a run at the championship. You gonna tell me these the player, we think is, maybe, I'm what I'm telling Davis. This is what I would tell you key last season. The Boston Celtics, underperformed in large part because they had too many duplications and a perimeter. Okay. So you can alleviate that with they trade for a type of player that you actually don't have. It doesn't duplicate. So the reason why you keep hearing Jaylen Brown's name out there is because he's clearly talented player. But if you have Tatum, and Gordon, and Jaylen Brown, you Vanja getting rid all my point is that you have one or to get to keep one or two, and whoever you keep is going to be nice. Okay say say they keep Gordon Hayward. Oh, no. We haven't from all star that that's coming. Back from injury say it keeps me comeback from injury and be good. But never mind last season. He starts working back this year. We're expecting to have a full recovery, and be the guy. He wasn't Utah, if they keep Jason Jason Tatum. They have a guy who has yet to shoot under forty five percent from the field, that they keep Jason Tatum. They keep Jason Tatum. I'll McGee you Brown for empty Davis. No, I take him it feels like has to be in it. But. Can't give up you, you give up Brown and keep pay them is. So now the Lakers assets on better than there. But if you're the Boston Celtics Travis, right? And then you have Gordon Hayward. And you have Anthony Davis Al Horford. Al Horford I thinking squad. I think just telling you, I think the point is if I'm the Lakers, keep keep bringing this back to the Lakers. And I think this is why if I'm rob Pelinka, and I'm sitting in my office deciding what my next move is it needs to be a big move. It needs to be where I'm pushing not just a couple of my chips, but virtually whatever I'm in the back of my mind if I'm thinking this is what I'm getting ready to offer. I'm putting almost all of that into it at the beginning because the Celtics are for more steel. Whoa. Ges word therefore more fluid in what they can do. They can offer variety of packages that include not just a pick, but multiple picks different players different types of players all of these things. So if you don't I can make you what? Ever meal you want. What are you, what are you looking for the Lakers? Have those three players pick. Right. And that's what it is. And you either like that or you don't and the Celtics can go one hundred different ways one hundred different combinations. It might be more attractive. That's why the Lakers need to get into this deal aggressively quickly and virtually completely from the very beginning because you don't want this to become a negotiation where the other guy might be able to get something that you can offer get it done. Get it done quickly within needs Kouzmin give him Coosa. Because as much as you like Koussa great. We all do is not Anthony Davis. He's not going to be coming Davis. He might become an Anthony Davis winning MVP. That's good. Anthony Davis is not gonna win that let's get it done. Stop messing around stops thinking that a wait till I'll throw just get it done. But the reports are than looking for a thirteen because neither Boston, nor the Lakers, giving everything that David Griffin's looking for. And this is the Mark of a very. Intelligent and smart of front office operative understanding what he has created a den I for himself, by the way, right? So by creating a deadline for himself by saying, I would like to have this done before the draft because I want to bring employers, analyze before I pick them. He's given himself a deadline, but he's also put pressure on everyone in the league to scramble and get this thing done now. And that may prompt a sort of desperation where you may overbid because there's a deadline, you know what he says, and you don't wanna be the one that's left your hands empty.
