I kinda can took a break on disgust. Buzz corruptions always been here as long as long as we've been here <music> antone cadillac paddle in here in seventeen o one sold liquor to the indians which was against french law making him the first dope dealer in detroit.

Circa seventy eight seventy seven seventy man we pile into charlie's car so he can show us around the city. We were rolling man. We win heart of it. Look at it. The roads are faulk doc and breaking apart. You've ever seen roads. Never there's one particular site. The charlie wants us to see he slows down as is he drives us by a lot on grasset avenue. What are we looking at. Here is what was supposed to be the new wayne county jail and it's the wayne county failed the failed jail skeleton of an unfinished building after years of delays and cost overruns construction on the jail halted about four hundred million dollars had gone into it all for nothing and so where did where did the four hundred million <music> contractors contributions to to <hes> politicians trade unions got some got some jobs.

We'll share a little bit of what we've learned from our time in detroit and and take a look at what might be next for the motor city. It's the final episode of season two. I'm john white welcome to a crime town. Special detroit loose unit called stress as killed ten people nine of them black to own. I don't recall. I believe hit eight mile. White played has already begun here. Whites fled to the suburbs with some bitterness. The dope traffic had taken hold very seriously in detroit detroit's first african american mayor coleman young has died the last bottle acknowledged you a great mayor kwame kilpatrick and begin our future right here right now twenty eight years behind bars for detroit's disgraced former mayor stand on the fact that things that i was charged with macworld that court ruled not guilty this teach you want time for so you always need a hustle. Don't there's gonna blow up in your face <music>. Hello you'd have a prepaid call. You will not be charged for this. Call this college from mommy kilpatrick an inmate in federal prison to accept dial five now. Hey kwami what's going on how you doing. I'm all right man. How are you good good. So is this it. Is this our swan swansong. That's why i saw. We had a great run. Let's go out in a ball of fire mm-hmm. I started talking to kwami kilpatrick about a year ago. He calls a few times a month late. You guys gonna watch super bowl. I'm just curious yeah. You don't have to be football so definitely watch it and <hes> you know. They got the big thing. Everybody had wait. I'm going to have the same there you go. According to kwami armie distant in prison has its blessings. You know wanted to blessings. I think of when i came here to prison i call it. A blessed in all the salaries are paid to lifers <hes> guy with fifty seven years but my last thirty five years and then in twenty. I'm absolutely hard to have health pity when you hear somebody stores guys have been here today with eighteen nineteen lifetime to three lives two thousand eighteen nineteen when you hear about a young man fifteen years old has already been in juvenile few times guy lost. Both parents is mother killed herself in front of can't be like oh what was behind. Most days keeps pretty busy. He's a worship leader in church. He sings in the choir and he's taking some classes. The named class business law the i l. They're trying to sit in the corner into back and class what that's like. We we now because they try to point you out of the instructors. You can't prefer to be how the glided as you know <hes> but when i answered toke west of the answer to help clarify and so he asked me to help them and so they asked we asked me to come up there so now i've actually the first private fan kwami kilpatrick round to the former mayor of detroit wants a new trial team. Kilpatrick lays out the reasons. They believe he was not treated fairly during the trial. We spoke with co when kwami. I arrived in prison phone. He started appealing his case with no luck whatever reports that people wanna buy into and believe whatever they want <hes> to to have. I'm just gonna let him have ah because for me. The important thing is to be restored back to my family to my mom and dad my my son community and preferably view help young people in all people out there in the world and back in two thousand fifteen. Kwami saw an opportunity an old friend of his was visiting his prison isn an old friend who just happened to be the president of the united states president barack obama is painting visit today to the same prison or experts right right mayor. Kwame kilpatrick currently locked up. It's interesting to see how similar these paths once were. Seven seven action. News takes a look at the rise of one man in the fall of the other barack. Obama was the first sitting president to visit a federal prison arena correctional facility in oklahoma. We're looking out the window. We see the presidential motorcade coming up the back and service gathered around him and i saw attention president obama step out of the car in a sale watching the presidential motorcade outside outside of a barred window a heck of a thing in my life president obama was there to promote prison reformed in an effort to undo decades zero-tolerance sentencing that disproportionately affected young black men. We have to reconsider whether twenty year thirty year your life sentences for violent crimes is the best way <hes> for us to solve these problems. These are young people who made mistakes that aren't that different than the mistakes i made. That's what strikes barefoot for the guy. Uh as part of his visit obama sat down with a group of inmates but there was an inmate obama. Mama didn't talk to do it would have i really have no fan but i did have an emotional moment because this a very personable in the tale tale of two lives wine <hes> guy who believe they decisions particularly family decisions and he was chosen to do ooh something i believe they'll beyond any imagination and he did it with him and then <hes> it's the difference between making bad decisions particularly agree past family decisions and you can end up. The president commuted the the sentences of three hundred and thirty people today the most ever in a single day. The kilpatrick was not one of them. Detroit mayor kwame kilpatrick will not about a clemency like thirty thousand other people obama. <hes> personally knew about my clemency application. I don't know what kind of information they received but it was clearly because he didn't give it must definitely be let got a proven. You just decided to not do much crime trapped inside the mast what he did for the city. You're pretty standard with me. Twenty eight years injustice black father citizen. This is quantities youngest son jonas last year mommy's family and supporters launched a campaign called the free kwami project to petition the court for resentencing his family of the mandate vacate the twenty-eight farming his family believe his sentences too long and motivated by racism. What was i supposed to do was as opposed to be less black was supposed to be less so how about if i was born twenty years earlier i never heard of run dmc or big or well oil cop or should i stash sound more like a white guy when until hey guys how you doing hans begin to mend amass the sentiment. It's something you hear a lot around detroit. Our wanna make it like a race thing but that's what it is u._v. Was why his same predicament with the same circumstances they will the punishment wouldn't have been as harsh young man can be rehabilitated and i don't think he's happy to throw away his life he he could come out here and do some very positive thing. There's just a lot fanny by twenty years. That's like like kill somebody. Somebody bird too much time. Do you think the twenty year sentence is is too too much yeah. Twenty eight years is too much 'cause charleena duff. The reporter from the top of the show understands both sides of the public debate about kwami me sentence but do i believe kwami kilpatrick crook hundred percent hundred percent did the media portrays trey that way hip hop guide thug the h c. Yes they did all yet. They were happy on bump into the navigator in the earring in the cango hat in a wide lapels sure no doubt about it so we do in detroit we in having solved this serpent this riddle call race. You tell me where in america we have but you did it. There's no no no question about it. Will you bad person. We will bad mayor you damn right you. Earn your way the pen dude. I was fucking around if i was you. Don't be blaming everybody else. I will admit it and then maybe some have mercy on and and you might get out of prison before you die. I lied about an and on satellite about fair. That was actually happening. Everything else was believed. Just wondering you know if there's a party view that i don't know that <hes> that owns some of that you know and you know what i mean. Unlike you made mistakes and was mistake that you made was was cheating on your wife was that that was the only criminal mistake mistake may absolutely without question but that was thousands of mistakes hiring. Some individuals are higher making some of the decisions on strategy that i may but they wanna say what did i started people so i don't know how to say it. What do you want me to own <music> by this point. I've spent hours of my life talking with kwami. In those conversations. I've seen his intelligence his charisma prisma and his sense of humor. I've actually come to like him but i've also interviewed people involved in his federal case and seeing overwhelming evidence that kwami coming accepted bribes and kickbacks mayor. He's refused to provide me with any evidence that disproves his guilt in every time he insists on his innocence. It sounds like another excuse. Once you have an adulterer and a cheater lied under oath anything now is believable and those people the who supported me in the city it provoked him to be quiet and so two city was looking for a savior <music>. A black editor in detroit wrote an editorial that said i think it's time for light mayor that ah editorial couldn't be printed in any other major city in america would have been an uprise but in detroit it was fine because of the plantation mindset that persist among blacks and whites dad to be white is better or smarter or it's a good day. They could be mayor in detroit just because they're whiting the young adults corrupted horrible and he was dancer so we need a white guy. It's time for a white man clammy. I just wanna say thank you and if this is the last time could could bide in one you know for all this to happen in time to pass in that say. I appreciate you opening yourself up to us without thank you john. I it's the first time that anybody's ever heard any alvin perspective tonight felicia in different side and now one thing when we face to face i can see i do too. I really do have a cup of coffee.

I are on our first trip to detroit so so. Where are we going right now. <hes> we're going to the solomon temple. These days detroit is changing for one kwame. Kilpatrick was right a few years years ago. The city elected its first white mayor in forty years. Mike duggan detroit's voters destroyed the theory that are white candidate could never win. They're easily electing. Mike dug it as mayor doug and one over at electorate. That's eighty. Three percent. Black detroit hasn't elected a white white mayor since one thousand nine hundred seventy doug and has been credited with reviving detroit overseeing the so-called motor city miracle and as we drive through the city. I can't help but notice that parts of it are looking good. Companies are moving back. Kin billions of dollars are being spent on infrastructure their hip bars in boutiques and condos. Ill to little cafes restaurants popping up the pistons just moved back into town but most of that change is happening in the downtown midtown core the city a lot of the people benefiting and a lot of the new residents moving in are white and huge swath of the city where black people live are still neglected and impoverished so at city field forest as we leave downtown town. We drive past the empty lots vacant houses that have become detroit's public face turn right onto his state fair mm-hmm. Sorry i'm not navigating very well. Then then we arrive at an old church <hes> and <music> another mayoral election year in detroit the vote is tomorrow and we're at a campaign rally for one of the candidates someone with a familiar millea name detroit politics. We all know who knows my name is colin alexander coleman alexander young the second the sun of detroit's first black mayor in the theme of the rally aw take back the motherland. That's what coleman young. The second supporters were hoping to beat mayor. Mike duggan and get get a black man back in city hall on our neighborhoods in our community. What do we don't do role. Play yeah no i. We've got to get this white racist may aren't we. Don't take back city. We can't give it up everything a message to these liceu parameters coleman young the seconds campaign manager is also also a familiar name adolph mongo the political consultant who created that infamous lynching ad for quantico patrick the the land the model how this young man and his legacy data was a bad man. No <music> as i look around the rally i realize something detroit his right back where our story started google <music> in new york city four more years for detroit mayor mike duggan it may be the biggest margin of victory three and twenty years in the mayor's race beat challenger coleman a young the second by margin of more than two to one well. Thank you detroit you know it's through all of the different kinds of attacks i have been treated by nothing but warmth and kindness from detroiters in every neighborhood of the city i just so appreciate duggan defeated young on the strength of downtown detroit's revival but not everyone is buying into duggan's motor city miracle again reporter charlie duff. I do have them in my possession. Federal documents that show duggan has been or had been harvey. Wanna legally stated been a subject of a massive federal corruption probe with this demolition program. He's fighting rabidly to beat it off. That's right. There's yet another federal corruption investigation underway in detroit. There is certainly the appearance of some sort of collusion. No not that i'm accusing doing is the apparent absolute auto companies. Were contacted can have a cigarette iziko nice out. Come back back at our rental house. In detroit struggling north end we step out onto the porch with charlie so he can smoke look around what we're looking at a bunch of houses that are plastic hanging from them and burn marks and portu- falling in and it's like a <hes> broken mouth one to messed up one works one dozen and then if you look the house next to that there's no windows and and you've got a demolition pit here to the righty you too big hole. Every every lot you see was a house. Every inch was a home. There were two million two million people in a city. That's gone from almost two million people in the nineteen. I'm fifty s to less than seven hundred thousand today. There are a lot of empty lots in abandoned houses tearing down. Those homes is big business that federal investigation charlie mentioned it's looking into possible kickbacks from city demolition contracts for detroiters traders. All those vacant homes are just an eyesore. There are reminder of everything the city has been through this sucked. The soul out of you know human wants to live next to this no none it's a very big deal and these things are very old that lead paint on their s. his bestest in the roof tiles tha a health hazard bullshit aw we stand on the porch with charlie listening adding to the snow drift off the roof not far from the demolition pit. We're looking at a home. That's obviously still lived in. It has a barbecue and some satellite dishes in there sitting on the lawn is a kids tricycle. That's key here. That's key. The kids are whatnot. Whatnot not three hundred feet from home if that was your. Can you be pissed as a mother fucker you. Would you be looking at everyday going mother.

Data dumps and you're the name would pick me up big PAPI's estate sale with poppy cleese. Poppy printer ink. Poppy Game asparagus rug. What is a bit spill? I am now at the point where I would be stunned. Tom Britain returns to the Patriots. O Oh Darling Jeff you think about your mentions get up this morning now reporting. Brady is evaluating the NFL landscape with the intention of the party. There's that and then there's also the Boston Herald Karen garrision that the Patriots still have not reached out to Tom Brady quote. It's not looking good. According to her source. Let's marinate on that for a second would you the negotiation strategy here is the not even reach out to Brady Patriots Frank? Well it's amazing. I don't think Adam Karen and Jeff for saying this stuff if they don't have good information but I would also say this. We know about the relationship that Tom Brady has with the owner Robert Kraft. My big question is what about the coach? Your Bill Belichick. You're not gonNA hear anything from him and we know historically he always gets rid of a guy maybe a year too early as opposed to a year too late and the quarterback that he wanted started the super bowl this year. That being Jimmy Garoppolo says something tells me maybe the Patriots as well as Brady are both ready to okay when you hear not looking good you believe that. One hundred percent now not necessarily. I think this is still part of negotiation. I still think there's a chance because of the owner and his relationship with Kevin Black. Still where you on this well? I don't know where else Tom Brady is going to go. Which would better his chances of winning a super bowl then where he is right now? That's one of the things I continually come back and and think about. I mean of those list of teams that get thrown out there. The only one. That's really in the playoff mix. I would think would be Dallas. And they have a young quarterback so and all of this is in Tom. Brady's court I don't think we should read too much into this remember. This has been reported for well over a year. Now remember Adam. Schefter reported last year before the season even started about Tom Putin his house on the on the block and the trainer putting his house on the block and that this was a real a very real possibility and here. We are all this time gone past. And we're at this point where Tom Tom. Brady is being reported not talking to the Patriots. But what does he really talk to them about? Really his conversation as frank just pointed out would really. Just be with Robert Kraft. Here's what I'm thinking about. What are you there? Wasn't Adam? Schefter report Kevin that the Patriots hadn't reached out because they're waiting on my new. Cba to be agreed to or not. And I doubted that but you said to me just who seconds ago. That's what you're hearing elsewhere. That's what I'm hearing. That's what I'm hearing about. What Dallas is waiting for in terms of Prescott kind of what this new. Cba language is going to be everybody's kind of waiting them. Woody page and it's not looking good no I don't think it's looking at all. I don't think we know we're seventeen days away and even though people are speculating both ways. The only thing I can tell you is frie- forgive me. He's not going to the giants and they've been now thrown into the mix really after what they did last year in in signing a quarterback. And they're GONNA go after. Tom Brady not a chance of it. He didn't want to play for team. That's not having any chance going to super bowl but Kevin I wouldn't disagree with you. I think if you put him on a team like Indianapolis Colts for instance who had injury problems wide receiver last year. But that's a team that is in a division that he could win and a team that could go to the Super Bowl. I I'm not sure about Either the chargers or the the raiders. Even though I think they would be great landing spots for him because of what he could do to help those franchises in their new stadiums. But I don't think that's GonNa work and Ramona Shelbert. That's the headline not looking good. What do you? How do you hear that look? I think this comes to what Tom Brady wants. Right does he. Does he. Just WanNa feel the love from New England specifically from Bill Belichick. Does he want us is? We'll pay raise. Does he want to win there. In which case this could all be alleged play to just put some pressure on the organization to get him some more weapons around him because obviously he didn't have a lot to work with last year. There's a lot of leverage games being played here right now but ultimately it will come down to what Tom Brady wants if he wants to win. New England's probably still the best place but look at a place like Tennessee. Really growing people looking to place Indianapolis team. That's ready to win. So I think he's got other going Ramona Shelburne and hear that from blackstone or woody page frank last word after the horn there has been talk about maybe the giants. Dave Gallo went out and drafted Daniel Jones. I can't imagine they would do that. Plus if I'm Tom Brady go back to knowing that I know what I'm getting myself into. But you know what he's a star. His wife is a start. Where do you go if you're a star where Ramona is out in La and if he goes to the chargers there's been talk about part ownership? So maybe that would work. It would be less about trying to win the Super Bowl more about his post but Kenny do that. I always forget. Is that allowed can you? Can you go to a team as a free agent also be given stake as an owner of the team after after he was on the Patriots? Should he stay there too? We'll move on now late nights you guys excited to be on the field drills at the combine up until eleven o'clock tonight we'll be this year's vk metcalf is a question you're Gonna. WanNa ask yourself while you're watching that but while we get there what's happening right now. Let's start off with Washington here. Kevin Black you're there. They had the number of course last year. The draft a quarterback fifteen haskins this year. We've heard from new coach Ron Rivera that they're meeting with Joe Varo into a tangle by LOA. Kb is that due diligence or something more it is a fiduciary responsibility of the GM and the code to the team and the fan face. They are if you just put out number two. Everybody knows that burrow into the people that that other teams as well as chase young who happens to be from Washington D. C. Just like Haskins. So I think this is due diligence. Talk to those guys. Not so much to frighten or even motivate Dwayne Haskins but also to let other teams know what you've got. The bengals can only take one person at number one so one of those guys or or one of those three people is GonNa be available and they are people that other teams one. So why not if you need some cornerback? Help if you need some tight in help if you need some defensive line help why not see if you can't multiply that that to pick into multi? Okay but let us just rank the three that you just mentioned right now and the three point. Haskins in there as well CAC borough tongue about lola chase. Young call himself the best player in the draft and Zwane Haskins. How're you ranking those four players right now Kevin Blackstone right now for this team's needs I would take chase because what they need? They need an edge rusher after that it would be too after that it would be borough in terms of the people borough of people you get to pick but right now if. I'm them I listen to also would Ron Rivera. Said after that statement about those two guys he talked up. Haskins and what he sees again. We're going to have to see the rest of that for your book and your facetime on on this number. Pick what he paid us here. Never heard. I've never Kevin Beasley so excited about his football team since two quarterbacks in the draft to what you start with our position drafting a quarterback in the first round last year this year. That rarely rarely happens. I think what they're doing here in Rod Rivera. I think is the guy in charge of what they're doing is saying we are going to make it difficult for other teams to actually know exactly what we're going to do that. We have to. We might say we're open for that spot and you've got if you want to or you really will burrow and he's not going to number one overall you gotta come to us. They have not been in that position. Kevin in a long long time where they actually could control the draft early with. We all know they can pull the draft. The question Ramon if you could answer it directly as they have Dwayne Haskins should they be looking for another quarterback? Go ahead let. The cardinals did that last year. And I think most people would agree that they did the right thing they got Kyle Murray. They moved on from. Josh Rosen and I think they made the right choice with that Ron Rivera. The new coach. He's got to look at dwayne. Hassans is really the guy that I want to move forward. Because he's not the it's not the guy that he drafted is not the guy he developed. So I think it's a IT'S A. They have that to decide in front of them right now but why not play the leverage game? If you're in that spot at number two most people thought that discussion started number three Detroit Sola. There is one person in that organization that I trust. It's not the owner. It's the new head coach. He knows he knows good. Quarterbacks he went to a super bowl with Cam Newton. He if he's worth his salt what he's already done is watched. Every single play that Twain Haskins had less season I'll guarantees going into this with an open mind and they're in a great position and to question too is stay healthy. I would not be shocked if they do this. It's a clean slate. Ron Rivera Listening Mona. You brought it up. Last franchise to draft a quarterback in the first round and back to backdraughts was just last year. The cardinals did it with Tyler. Murray and it only happened once before that with the the colts who are Baltimore at that time sleater and elway back to back years in and of course elway didn't even play for them. We're GONNA move on now talk some. Nba Celtics one. Fourteen jazz. One zero three two teams going in complete opposite directions at the moment and Jason Tatum. What's changed with his game? It's like he's found a mama switch in the last at the same time the jazz. It's the notes that aren't there. Four straight losses winstar putting Mike Conley on the bench in the morning shootaround reporting that he changed his mind. Modane showing was benched and Roy. So neal started first Boston. Ramona is here to stay. And what's the team ceiling within playing like this like Jason? Tatum has been a different player since he was got that. Validation of being named an all star. He's got six thirty point games in February before that he had six thirty four games in his entire career. Like this guy is on some kind of run right now and I think I think he just believes he's the guy now. I think that all star selection was very validating for him for go solo. At one thing to the equation. That Kemba missed the last couple of games and tatum boost in everything. He's doing. So how sustainable. Is this tatum with his team. Oh I think it will be because I can't walker is that is a good teammate. And remember this to Jason. Tatum has been in a conference. Final in game seven. He played very well against the Cleveland. Cavaliers but go back a few years ago when they made that pick Danny ainge treated out of the top spot traded down to get Jason Tatum and got number one. Pick that got a first round. Pick out of it from Philadelphia Jason Tatum. Jason Tatum carries himself like a superstar. Devin black half. I'm glad you said superstar because maybe the hall of fame coach Brad. Stevens is learning now. How to use a superstar layer jason thing and letting him play. His game didn't handle it so well with Kyrie Irving we know. Kyrie's a different kind of guy but all of a sudden this Jason's team and he's taken control. Woody page well situation as maturity and confidence. He is more confidence in his shot. I think he's reaching his birthday next week. He'll be twenty two on March six and I think being picked to the All Star game playing there. That really made a difference but he's taking better angles to the basket. And I believe he went from being a Jag just another guy in the NBA. To being dug out I mean he got his birthday wrong march third. That's okay the the idea here though. That eight twenty one year old about twenty two year old. All-star is really coming to zone. It's almost like it's God's will might say which in a mock defeat there the break right here by yourself on the other side. The gra he's got. The apostrophe added the tattoo right baby in life. There are talkers and there are doers. Sometimes it's not hard to tell the difference. Mike Bloomberg is spent his life getting big things done starting his business at a one room office. Mike Built a company with twenty thousand employees. All with good pay equality. Healthcare elected mayor in the aftermath of nine eleven. Might got to work helping rebuild a shaken city creating nearly five hundred thousand new jobs and expanding healthcare for nearly seven hundred thousand New Yorkers. Now there's a clear choice. Do you want a debater or a door? Someone who can fix health care. Who's done it? A guy who's unafraid of tough challenges was a track record creating jobs who's taken on the NRA and one that might Bloomberg a proven leader who can unite our country and get things done. That's who can be trump. That's who we need in the White House. I'm Mike Bloomberg candidate for president and I approve. This message paid for by Mike Bloomberg. Twenty twenty welcome back to around the horn brought to you by coming to you from the seaport district here. Seventeen Small Ball Mike. Rowe baugh whatever you WANNA call it. And they're trying to make micro ball catch on. I'm not sure if it's getting rockets. One Forty Grizzlies one twelve game for center Russell. Westbrook thirty three ninety four since they went small. They're not into shooting fifty three percent before the game. Job rant said Westbrook's been taken for granted. He's been highly disrespected. Ramona Shelbert. You buy your still best buying that. I think probably job. Morale was Was asked to certain question by my buddy to McMahon that. Got Him to say that. I don't think he necessarily would volunteer that unknown but Russell Westbrook is in his life cycle that we were stars where we build them up and they're really cool when they had the narrative working for them. So that angry thing that he's got that work really well right after Kevin Durant left but once they started losing and he didn't deliver in that spot in Oklahoma City and now he's in the Houston. It doesn't play as well. I think John Rounds on the phone their word and that gets deduction Joe. Yeah page you know. Paraded become our Goto wikipedia. Nba been having a lot of close as a rookie. However I think he is disrespected. I referees. He's got fourteen technicals. He's got into fights with the argument with fans okay. frank. I sold is about to lose his mind right here. But we'll move along the line I give him by stone and Wood Franken staking hockey disrespected. We celebrated this guy's being the triple double King of the NBA. He's been on all star team after all star team We even talked about how he was going to go to Houston and whether or not he was going to fit his talented in the Houston. Or whether hardens fittest talents with him. I don't think he's been disrespected at all. We celebrate Westbrook. Here's what I Sola please. Floors Yours John. Moran is being respectful to one of his elders. The media voted Russell Westbrook. Mvp The coaches vote them onto the all star team this year. The band and Oklahoma City. Love him he's going to have a statue there. You disrespected him. Kevin Durant when he left to go to golden state remember. The story started coming out to play it in like Russell. Westbrook all the sub tweet. That's where he might have gotten disrespected. Not by all right real quick right. The idea. That small ball makes him more effective player. You buying into that. The pocket rockets. I think it absolutely works. It opens up. Give my kids. Get behind over micro Paul there. We go frank. We'll move on fire sale to Yankees Spring Training. Not GOING WELL. Severino season over. Tommy John Surgery. That's basically two years in a row. He's missed stanton season. Starting with a calf strain which is to say stanton. How bad is a gun for staying with Yankees fans when the news crossed along with statements? Name trending Ellsbury name was threatening paid. Hang on for a second FRANKEN NEW YORK. I know he wants to start us off. There is this worse for the Yankees or Stanton. I Sola No. It's a lot worse for staying. There was somebody on this panel today. Who Win The trade was made? Thank Derrick Jeeter for Gifting Stanton to the Yankees. That was well. Thank you for reminding us he ever does is get hurt. He strikes out a lot and the fans any disappointment. They have I the Yankees. They take it out on him once again. Another injured Ramona Shelburne. Yeah he's got eight years at two hundred forty four. I've found that you still. Oh Man. Look you've played in eighteen games last year and you know you start getting these quad injury in the playoffs calf injury. Those muscle injuries. They don't heal all well. You come back Rian. Beginning Stanton will ever be healthy in his career going forward. I think with his body type and the and the type of injuries keeps getting. Yeah Yeah I agree with that He's had a lot of injuries and I do think. Even though we're not dr we tend to play one on the show that is body type is such that he's GonNa get a lot of strange and strains and hamstrings stuff like that but he did talk about him I. I don't blame the fans I mean. Here's a guy says spring training. You could've hit eight home. Runs in two thousand seventeen to feed pigeons coming. He had three home runs last year. That's all that's no wonder. Fan Blackstone Aaron Judge is the star that team. I think we all agree. But he was supposed to be another star on this team. That's what the Yankees do they come at star power to scarf out the star power. They have one without him. They will have to win without him going forward. He's not gonNA necessarily get better at his age. I don't know about his body type at his age injuries. The question is whether you didn't say it but what you're implying here is the Yankees one hundred and three games last regular season Severino. They can do it again this year but this I mean they play the orioles all the time down. Come on now. What is page gift? Blackstone get a front row seat to watch Ramona Shelbert Showdown Shelbert. I Sola Good luck and showdown grays flunks. Plop DRILL BOB. Anybody that is that's escrow spring training so far seven pitches doing seven hit by pitches. What does this mean Ramona? What are you reading into this? I think this is going to happen all year. Unfortunately I think Major League baseball is going to have to step in pretty quickly and start suspending. The guys who are hitting the Astros which ironically means pitchers are going to get suspended more games for this cheating scandal than any player. A- Las Vegas put the number at eighty seven. The Times are going to get hit. As woody page told me they might as well put it out one hundred sixty two. What's going to happen but I'm telling you this. This is going to be a brolin spring training because they're going to say enough is enough. I wanted what he pays lines he'd be here in showed. I'll give him the point. When he employed Shelbourne. We'll move on to emergency. She talked about this earlier in the week. I love this story. I gave out to anyone who oppose the story. Didn't see the joy and fun of emergency goalie and Dave bears being alleged for the Carolina Hurricanes. Now the Niche L. Apparently is on your side because there's emergency GM meetings or these normal GM meetings and they're gonNA send her modifying emergency goalie rule out. You hear that I'll defend him. Is he and myself. We loved the story too cute story. It's a Disney movie but it cheapens sports. Just use someone on the Rosser. Someone is listening to the show. Thankfully well look this. Is this never used to happen? And now it's happened twice in three years. I think they have to do something about it. Doesn't just get an extra player out there. Get an emergency goalie. Designation guys are ants at the picnic. What are you doing here? It's great. We'll move on showed up in big PAPI estate sale all right cancer student David Ortiz Hover Board or David Ortiz.
