"What has been built shipment done. What is this work that Dick Monfort is so exceedingly pleased about? He did nothing. He didn't pick up the phone, he ghosted other general managers. And when they did get through to him, he had a ridiculously high. Asking value for Trevor Story. I could have done that. I want your top eight prospects and 3/5 of your rotation or no deal. I could have done that. You could have done that. That's not doing work. Making it so The only thing that will go on is the status quo is not work. That's actually the antithesis of work. That's the absence of work. Letting things continue the way they are. Letting the roster stay the same. Only being forced to make moves when a guy gets hurt. That's not work. That's not even a gig. We live in the gig economy, right? Everybody's got a side deal. Side hustle. I call switchbacks games. I have friends and co workers across the hall. That broadcast sporting events that work for Teams in this city. Do marketing or What have you You may have a side gig. Maybe you're an uber driver on the weekend. Maybe you do some door dash. All of that. Is far more work. Then build what Bill Schmidt did. But they're impressed with him. They like the work he's done. Which is say Yes, sir. When Dick Monfort tells him to do something I mean, you take the gig If your Bill Schmidt, you take the gig. Right? I mean, Bill Schmidt is not that much different than Vic Fangio. If you get offered a head coaching job, you take it. You've been in the game for how long without an opportunity to lead either a team or an organization. If you're offered the job, you take it. I don't begrudge Bill Smith. I'm just saying, this is complete and utter nonsense. And by saying they'll conduct a search. That's in effect them saying they're not going to conduct a search. We're going to do a search, but we really like this guy. That means you're going to give him the job. And so any search that you feel like you're doing is a sham. It's a force. Can't wait till Nick grope. Interviews, a quote unquote GM candidate off the record and rights in the athletic About how they showed up. And they knew they weren't actually interviewing for a job. That athletic piece is coming out. This winter. Be ready for it. Nick broke with collaboration from Ken Rosenthal. Rockies farce GM search One of the an excerpt from the pieces going to inevitably Detail How somebody got turned around at Coors Field went down the wrong hallway. And found an office that, said Bill Schmidt, general manager. Not interim, not acting general manager. And they're going to see the maintenance guy screwing in the plaque on the outside of his door. I mean, we have journalistic malpractice. We have medical malpractice. This is sports malpractice. Handing the job over to someone who did nothing. The entirety of the summer. Except his real job. Which is the scouting director. Bill Schmidt put in a lot of work there. Remember Bill Schmidt when he was introduced as interim general manager said, I got to catch up on learning about our guys. Giving you even know these players, some of them he drafted. But once they, you know, they go through his bucket. That's it. You're not watching Trevor Story play or John Gray. He's focused on Iava Pie Junior College. Impressed with the work he's done. Give me a break. I was talking to somebody earlier today and he says, do we need to find a new team? I'm like, You know what? I don't like anybody in baseball. That's why I'm at Don't like anybody. I can't think about Going in another team. The Rockies. Have ruined me to the point that I can't even be a fair weather fan. Can't fake it. Enough to sell it to somebody at a bar or on the street. Oh, yeah, I'm You know? Red Sox fan or I'm a Yankee fan or Braves fan. I can't even do it. I can't. I can't even barely think of a team. Least layer walkers gaining all of fame, right. Like just we can bank on that and Wednesday will be fun. Just I see headline Right Tweets Rockies are going to avoid the 100 losses that everyone said they would have. Who cares. So they're losing 90 instead of 100. What a major success. What a building block! Only thing worse. Then the orange and blue state run media is the purple and black state run media. People will make it their job to trumpet every little tiny thing that the Rockies do positively. It's like no Like how do you Again. You take the gig. Right? You take the job. You take the salary. I get it. But don't just get just know that everything you say is going to be laughed off. Cause there's nothing positive about this season. The home record is a complete Uh huh. It's just a cosmic mistake. They've hit the most grand Slams in the most walk off. Yeah. When's the last time that someone described hitting Grand Slams and walk off home runs as the strength of a team? It's happenstance. It's chance. Any success the Rockies have had or lack of failure is a better way to put it is my complete and utter chance..

"Say that it's stated goals are to win a division and win a world championship. Think about that. He's never heard that And I know the Rockies. Over the course of Nolan are not his career have not had very many opportunities to truly believe they have a chance at winning a championship. But how do you not at least say that? That's your goal and I'll tell you the reason why Because this is an organization that has proven time and time again. They will not do whatever it takes. They won't Cardinals will And that is the difference. And that's why in ST Louis, not only do they have the track record to back that up But they have the belief because they know that they're good enough at their jobs. And they are willing to do what it takes to win in the Rockies have never been good enough at their jobs. Believe they can win. And they certainly have not. Gone above and beyond. In order to Try to win, but even if they haven't Make sure the Detroit Tigers be saying their goal is to win a championship. Like how is Nolan spent so many years in Colorado and never heard anyone from the Rockies. In management. Or from his teammates say that the stated goal is to win a championship. I mean, if you want if an alien came down in a UFO And wanted to learn about the Rockies. Just that sound bite. There is all you would need to play for him. Or her or it or they do they do. Aliens even have Jim genders? That's all he would need to know. That the Rockies don't even make it a stated goal to win a division or the win a championship. And if it's not even your goal. And you're never gonna reach it. If you don't set as a goal, you're not going to reach it. But that's what the Rockies are. Iraqis are we'd like to win a championship. We'd like to win the division. It will be super swell if we were able to do those things. But it's not a stated goal and it's not something that they are in constant pursuit of and don't tell me about this mid market nonsense because ST Louis is a smaller market than Denver. And I'm speaking to Dick Monfort on that, Not you guys. Because you guys understand. Rockies draw Well, they make money. They're not a tiny Market. You guys see right through all of that. But it's the same nonsense that Dick Monfort continues to perpetuate that. They're poor and they're a tiny market and how could they possibly compete? The Tampa Bay Rays? The Tampa Bay Rays. I've been to twice a Zeman E world Syriza as the Colorado Rockies. Think about that. They can't drop flies at Tropicana Field. And they have been to two world Syriza's in their history that has not spanned as long as the Rockies history. So when the Rays go the world Syriza's Twice in their existence. And the Rockies make it once on a complete fluke. That tells you everything you need to know. It can be done doesn't mean you can sustains success that you could go back to the World Series year after year after year doesn't even mean that you can win. Raise haven't won one. They've been to to have a 11. But I bet you even with the difficulties that the Rays have in drawing fans that Oakland A's Problems they have with their garbage stadium. And their tiny payroll. I bet you even they make it a stated goal to try and win. Division. And play for World championship, But Iraqis don't and that tells you everything you need to know. And I know no one needs to make a good impression and it's his new home. He's not. He doesn't owe anything. To the fans in Colorado, but it would sure be nice if he would just temper the enthusiasm a little bit. There's a little bit By the way, one other thing from Nolan are not owes Media tour of ST Louis. He did mention that initially he wanted to go. Two away. He said he wanted to go play at home. And when he said play at home, he meant the diner's not the Angels. So we did have a desire to go to L A when it was going through this process where he knew he'd probably be traded and he had a wave is no trade. Um, he wanted play in l A, but it was interesting that he said it was clear that was not going to happen. Read into that what you will Whether it's because the Dodgers weren't willing to deal for him or because Come on for wasn't willing to trade him to L. A. But he said as much as he wanted to play. For his hometown team. It was not going to happen, and it was clear wasn't gonna happen. So when that was in an option ST Louis was the next one. Next landing spot he had for himself. 5 to 29872 were. We'll take a break here and continue in the third hour drive time sports After this From the Chief Vapor traffic.

During the first hour. If you love the Rockies. You truly love them. You cannot go to games. If you truly love the Rockies You cannot buy Rockies gear. You can't do it. Dick Monfort cannot see.

"To the other side. Right here we go. Broncos Country tonight, right? Edward's been, but Albright's give us a call three or 3713 85 85 or into some of the text line 56690, as always, at all Bright NFL at or Edward Freddy of the station at K Away. Colorado. We have pull questionnaire that poll question in a long time, because we're gonna be taking the case to court in a little bit around 8 30 tonight. Should the Broncos make every effort to acquire to Shawn Watson. You know that is assuming the Texas actually even make him available. But at this point that you know, we take the case to court. It's all hypotheticals. Last year, we ran the hypothetical should the Broncos bringing Melvin Gordon. One side of that argument didn't win in court yet one in the public quarter. However, it was because he ended up coming here. But whatever. Um well, I don't even know what you're talking all this nonsense about the Shawn Watson win. EA Sports has announced that bringing it back How was football? Video games are back. We don't have time for that. Everything. We don't have time for that to be the topless in the A block story to get into the Rockies we got we got tears over Rocky these that water Rockies don't care about the Rockies. They just traded Norland. Overnight on page 50 million to do it. You see Norland? I said no one. Okay, Let's go back to the table. That one. Okay, so, yeah, you are. I I sort of saw you tweeting about that earlier. Go ahead. Tell Tell us all about her. Now. You don't wanna talk about it. It's okay. We'll talk about the depressed conference that happened today. Sham. I was kind of a mess. There's not really any one way around it. But you know what? I'll say this. I expected it to be a mess. It didn't really I didn't think it would move the needle one way or the other on how Rockies fans currently feel about this situation. Of youth. You agreed that I could get moved the needle move the needle the wrong direction. I mean, yes And no. I mean in the end. It's It's kind of the dysfunction that you mostly thought it would be, at least for me. I guess I wasn't really surprised by much of what was said. We could get into some of the more particulars of it. But the overall feel I got from the press conference was okay. Well, you know, Dick Monfort owner is a big baseball fan right? And he sometimes maybe has some suggestions that aren't necessarily the best baseball. Mindset to help the team and then you have you know, Jeff brought it to you, I think, unfortunately, isn't all that likable most of time and then on top of that he has missed a lot. On free agents. And just like, Meet me over here, Camera two. Okay, buddy, you gotta you gotta stop. Doolittle. Thoroughly unlikable person in Denver right now. Yeah, incredibly, incredibly arrogant. And I'm saying that of all people. Like Wow. There's just been his whole deal's just been out of touch. Bad decision after bad decision and then claiming that nobody understands because you know, they never let anything. Whatever that nonsensical quote was. That he had in that article or a book or whatever. And you know, I just just It's ridiculous. The Rockies whether they believe it or not, this is the way it comes across. Guys. Mom for writers just weigh it comes across whether this is actually true or not. It comes across like you view the Colorado Rockies as an A T M. And as long as they're competitive once a decade, you're cool. That's what it comes across. Like. If that's not the message, you need to figure out how to get the message across because that's the message that you send. So the opening of it was clearly on a Nolan are not. Oh, Wanted to be traded. We acquiesced. Begrudgingly. Gosh, when Dick Monfort said that I thought about this trade 10 times, and I thought it was wrong. That was That was a tough moment, Mike. Okay? You thought about 10 times and 10 times. You thought it was a bad idea. And yet you did it anyways. Like Yeah. What were they couldn't. I couldn't. I couldn't do it that what was the What was the thought process there? Well, the first nine times I was a little ambivalent about this temp time. We gotta pull the trigger on this. I just didn't get that one. But yeah, I saw the whole the whole premise of the press conference and as a war on I mean, we'll play a couple of sound bites here as a war on. There were definitely some moments where they tried to take some of the blame. And even Jeff Brundage said You couldn't blame this on me that you know, kind of falls on my shoulders. And I mean that's all just kind of fall on your shoulders. It does fall on your shoulders. Ultimately true. But the beginning of it didn't feel so much that way. You know what I'm saying? Like the beginning of it felt more like well, humans grow apart, And sometimes that just sort of happens is minimizing the thing. How could you not make it work with the best third baseman in baseball in 50 years? Yeah, that's exactly right. And so and he did. He didn't really shed a tunnel light onto some of the more particulars you remember. Last year..

"And then immediately wanted out. I feel like I know the situation in Colorado a little bit better than I know. The one down in Houston with the Sean wants in Don't think Nolan are not. Oh, signs at extension if he didn't have every intention on playing with the Rockies for the rest of his career. And the fact that just one bad year Even with everything that happened with Jeff, right? It's that one bad year would make Nolan are not a demand to be traded. I'm sorry. I just I don't buy it. And that is the biggest thing coming from today. Zoom call. I don't believe anything that Dick Monfort and Jeff bright, it's say. I think they put in This opt out. Because they knew it was always going to come to this that they were not going to be able to continually compete. Because they weren't willing to spend more money. And they wanted to get to the point where no one are not. It would be so fed up with the direction of the team that he would want to leave like they're perpetuating today. Or No. Use it as a convenient excuse to deal him. Well, he's got the opt out. We can't lose him for nothing. Well, guess what? Given what you were got in return. From ST Louis and what you gave up. Both in terms of our NATO and the money you gave the Cardinals I think I speak for everybody. When we say we would rather you just have let Nolan are not opt out. Oh, but we were doing him a favor. Was. We're family here. Uh um. The second most important thing that we found out today on the brightest and Montford zoom call. Is that, you know. Guys signing a 10 year extension for a quarter of a billion dollars and then wanting out just a couple of years later, you know, it's normal. Things just happened this way in life. Sometimes we're time sometimes relationships change. And this is not an easy necessarily an easy industry to be in people are competitive. Um Hand and human beings change over time. Our feelings? Um what's important to us on And you know it. It's Zanotto always a straight line, and it's not always simple, and it's not always easy, but I think my point is that at the base of all of this, this relationship was Uh, a strong belief that I've always had a Nolan ever since I first got to know. We know that you think he's a great player. We all think he's a great player. That's not the point. We're not disputing. Nobody is saying all Jeff, right? It's you must not think Nolan are not as any good. No, I think Jeff, brightest things that Nolan or not, is a good player. That's not the point. Relationships do change over time. Not this quickly. Not this quickly and not under normal circumstances on Lee under the Extraordinary circumstances. Of a team squandering a promising roster by not Supplementing said roster going from a divisional round berth to the cellar in your division in one year's time. To your star player. Shipping him out for Bag of magic beans. This doesn't just happen. This is not part of life. This is not part of the human condition or the human experiment. You caused this You caused it to come to this either is premeditated or through just your own inability to manage the people on your team. Came to this. It's not normal. It's not normal for relationship to sour this quickly. And I put this through. But this is probably the most important thing that Dick Monfort at least wants you to know. This is still a team that's capable of winning baseball games. I know maybe nobody on this call will believe this. But I truly in my heart believe That this is a very talented team that underperformed the last couple years. And, you know, I'm not even gonna count last year because it was It was a difficult year. So there you go, folks. 29 teens and out liar. 2020 doesn't even exist. Don't we all feel that way? So, Dick Monfort says. That this is a team that can still compete. Even without their best player with their best player. They couldn't compete. And now without their best player and getting back forget about whether the guys they got in return are promising prospects or not promising prospects. There's only one guy they got back in this deal that is Has a legitimate chance of being on the opening day roster. This coming season in his Austin number. All these other guys are years away. So how can Dick Monfort, sit up there. And claim that this is still a team you took. Even if it wasn't take away the fact that it's completely ridiculous that a team that has finished Near the bottom. I can't remember if they were last. Or maybe the Giants and Diamondbacks were in last near the bottom of the division two years ago and the bottom of the division this year. Leave out that part that they did that with Nolan are in Otto. And how patently absurd it is. To assert. That that is a good team. Now you're saying.

"You've been at the bottom of your division. You have taken what was once the one of the best minor league systems in baseball. And now it is. It is like old Mother Hubbard's cupboard like there's just nothing in it. The Woody Paige laid out all of these things all these things that we've been saying and ask Dick Monfort the question. Have you thought about firing Jeff Bright it And have you thought about firing yourself? For a sub standard job of operating the Colorado Rockies and the first thing Dick Mom for did Was Take umbrage. Seo. Even the premise That the Rockies haven't been well run over the past couple of years. So the answer to all those air? No. Um, you know, I I like Tonto. I look at the same publications about all the minor league. Teams and you know, I Trevor story was never in the top. 100. Charlie Blackmon was never in the top. 100. You know, One of our issues in Colorado, be quite honest is we really don't you know? For whatever reason. Maybe it's because They're not going to rank pictures or or because they know they're gonna have to picture. I don't know. I don't think so. I I've been taught over time. Do not pay attention to that. I see our farm system. I see the what we go through to draft players. I see our development people. I go to all our minor league teams. I see the work and effort that we put into all of this. Um, So I guess if I can, I'll disagree with some of those comments, but no. I have not thought about firing Jeff. I have thought about firing myself. But I have not thought of about fire and Jeff. Then do it.

Who is a starting pitcher for minor leaguers infielder Louris Montero and Matteo Gil and pictures Tony Alosi and Jake Summers. If you're saying I don't know any of those guys. Well, don't worry, You won't need to know their names till about 2024 Good news on the Colorado sport front, Nicole Yokich. Becomes the first player since Carmelo Anthony in 2000 and nine to be named Western Conference Player of the month. Yokich recently won player of the week honors in the MBA. Average 27 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists and just about two steals over the last month. Just give him the N V P award already. Or drive time sports right now. I am glad to see that bee MBA is respecting what Nicole Yokich is doing. Because I mean, we say it nearly every day. I mean, what he's doing is not normal. For a guy that plays his position to do what he's doing. Is just Hasn't been seen in a long time, if ever. But I But here's the thing that nuggets have got to get into the top two or three seeds in the West. Or Nicole Yokich is not going to be a viable M v P candidate. They will not Give Nicole Yo Kitchen, the Nuggets the band for the doubt, they must have one of the best records in the MBA. And right now, even though they made a major statement on Sunday night by beating down the Utah Jazz He's still they gotta pass him. They gotta win their division. They got to be competing with Top couple of seeds in the West or else Nicole Yokich isn't going to get a sniff for M v P. Is not An MBA. People can tell you that he will. He's not going to, because by the end of the year it will be about LeBron or Johannes or Luca, although the Mavericks keep losing, so I don't know how Luca don church is still in the M V P voting. If the knock on Nicole Yokich is that the Nuggets aren't winning enough. What about Luca? Don shit Who was everybody's pick for M V P. Everybody loved Luca don check well, the Mavericks are winning basketball games. Where's the Where's the people saying Lucas not winning enough? You call yoke? Its stock is not what he came forward today. Maybe it was Donna did on this day specifically. It is above all else. About Jeff, Bright Ege and Dick Monfort facing the proverbial firing squad, and it absolutely was. Now it started off civil enough. How difficult was an and look? Being in the media like I am. I can appreciate the position that Rockies beat writers find themselves in. Hey, and I and they're not gonna want me toe. Speak on their behalf or whatever, but I'm just saying, if you're somebody on the Rockies beat and you got to show up to Coors Field every single day, you are not going to Take the swings. That columnist and other media members are going to do. It's just not gonna happen, and I can appreciate the delicate position they find themselves in so The press conference today, kind of flow like that you had the beat writers going first, and it was. It was sharp questions, but not really. Getting into the heart of it. And then mark Islam. Woody Paige spoke. And if you know me, I Have a ton of respect for both of those gentlemen. I know both of those guys. I've had mold a lot of conversations with them. I respect them. And they were the ones today. That really started it off. And there are other Sean Sean killer from the Denver Post. Nick broke from the athletic. Um There are a lot of people on that call because they're just There's just no way to softball your way out of this thing. Rockies fans are incensed. People inside baseball. Are wondering the ringer just did a fantastic piece. If you are just a glutton for punishment and pain and agony, read the ringer. And their piece about Nolan are nado. And that trade like Rockies fans, Aaron Sense people inside baseball think the Rockies have lost their mind like there is nobody making the case for Jeff Brightest and Dick Monfort that they made the right decision, so there's no way to tip toe or two softball your way out of this thing. But it really picked up when Woody Paige and Mark Kiszla started asking questions. There was one exchange where Mark Kiszla Said something about you know you can You said nothing last forever like Have you thought about you not being the owner forever. And Dick Monfort said You'd like that, wouldn't you? Uh huh. But Woody Paige Ask Dick Monfort the question. Laid out Whole lot of stuff that we've been laying out for months and years. You have turned a team that was ascending. That had gone to the wild card game one year the next year had gotten to the divisional round a team on the up and coming on the ascent. You took that team and you have now driven it toe last place in your division. Two years in a row now..

"From K Away News radio. All right, so, the press conference today First of all, do we have the Nolan sound? Of him getting introduced in in ST Louis. Let's hear that first before we hear from what Dick Monfort in, and Jeff private had to say. Your fans know they've always supported me throughout my career home and you know, I really care about him. They got special place in my heart and my family's hard, you know, because this this, move it, Zeke. We're really excited, but you know, he's crazy, All right. It was like a second home, so we loved it way love those fans. We appreciate the support. You know, The only thing I would tell me is that I did my best and I give them my all and that's all I really do. Amen to that. We know he did give it his best and give it his all. Even when there was no shot for this team to make the playoffs, the owner of the Colorado Rockies, Dick Monfort, and of course, general manager Jeff Bright Itch spoke to the media today and first things first. Dick Montford said It was his choice to move on. Yeah. I mean, uh, you know, a year ago. Uh, you know, we, uh, we tried to find out whether there was a fit for Nolan quietly. That was Nolan's and our hope. Then it got out. But way we shut it down because there wasn't anything that was a fit. You know, If I had my brothers, I would rather have Nolan Aaron Otto, but it was no one's choice. He wanted to move on. And you know, I have speculated over the last year what Why on dive talk to Nolan a lot about it over the last year, but the fact remains that I think he just felt it was time for him to Tonto. Try something else out. So you know that said, What do you do? I mentioned you could just wait and have him opt out at the end of the year and you get a draft choice. Or you can talk some other teams and see if you can make a better deal. So, although there's some a lot of financial ramifications in this, I think the fact of the matter is we honored what Nolan wanted to do. And we made what we thought was the best thing we could do at the time. And you know, as I also mentioned this didn't Just all the sudden Happened. This took a lot of work and s O. I think these are the results of that. Uh, what are you laughing at? What are you laughing at? What was the line that made you start to laugh? And I almost sounds like Whoa, Glad we got that contract off our hands. I mean, you know, I'm saying like, hey, Nolan wanted it and we wanted it. Well, but what I'm saying I'm gonna change, essentially said he didn't want it. He said he didn't want but But then he said, no one wanted it, and we wanted it as well. Okay. Do you need me? The replay that Cause he said it I mean, So what you're hearing is who Lead. Got that contract off our hands. I mean, that was that's the way I took it. Um, there's only one out. Yeah. I mean, nobody wants to be. If you're a great player, you don't want to be on the losing team. Nobody wants to be on the losing team. I mean, talk about the money. You walked away from talking about the money. You walked away from Look, I walked away from one of the biggest 11 of the biggest deal at the time. Because I didn't want to play for loser. But you know, it's just it's just But what we're talking about here we're talking about. Hundreds of millions of dollars that you're committed to And you have to pay. Not knowing what kind of revenue you're gonna get. But it's it's still sounded like you know when, he said. You know it took a lot of work to get this deal done. Uh, we're supposed to feel good about that. I mean, that's good. Really Don't know. I don't know. The answer to that question is no, We're not supposed to feel good about it in any way trying to figure that out in any way, Shape or form. Um Dick Monfort on What to say to frustrated Rockies fans, My men? Yeah, and the guy I actually see some of it not on purpose, but I do see some of it. Um, you know, I mentioned I'm a fan, and I truly am. So I understand how they feel on and to be quite honest, I would probably feel the same way and maybe I do even feel the same way. Like I said, When we signed Nolan, it was in an attempt to keep no one here for the rest of his career. But Things do change. So you know, I know maybe nobody on this call will believe this. But I truly in my heart leave. That this is a very talented team that underperformed the last couple years. And, you know, I'm not even gonna count last year because it was It was a difficult year. But, you know, I think we underperformed. So I believe you know, we're shorter talent, and we were ah, year ago. But we've got a lot of guys that could be quite honest. It's time to cut bait. And so this could be the challenge that they need. This could be they need to step up and fill in this void and The other thing is these days Come whether you know whether it's free agency. Whether it's an end of a career, whether whatever these things happen in time and The organization needs toe. You know, you all have to step up. So, um, we're gonna you know we're going to face Some issues with our fans, and we'll deal with it and, you know, hopefully hopefully we can get off and start playing well and in time, the fans will understand. I do agree with that. Winning will cure everything..

"Your superstar player stew for two years over the direction of this club? And every time you had a chance To reach across the proverbial I'll I guess that's more of a political term, but we'll use it here. Reach across to Nolan are not. Oh, To assure him that better days were ahead that this was just a little You didn't do it. And maybe he got frustrated to the point that he was going to use his opt out. But at this point seeing what the Rockies got back in return Would have rather seen. Nolan are not all opt out after this year. Because you're paying the ST Louis Cardinals. Have Nolan are not on their team. You don't have to pay him a dime. You got back Austin Gamber. And four magic beans. One of these guys hit a buck 88. In the minor leagues last year. You got back nothing and you gave everything. The ST Louis Cardinals. I think I speak on behalf of all Rockies fans. When I say you should have let him opt out. Because in that case, some people might actually think Nolan are not always the bad guy. Right because you held on to the very last second. And you didn't trade him for a bunch of garbage. You held out. You tried to see it through. He took the opt out. That would have been a better result. Than this. 5 to 29872. That is Not even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to The absolute verbal diarrhea that was spewed out. My Dick Monfort and Jeff brightest today. And this was not a press conference. Mind you This was a bloodletting. And in this world where some people in the media are vilified. I think if you're Rocky's fan, you should be very proud. Of the media because they went to bat for you today and one guy locally that deserves Some extra kudos is Woody Paige. Woody Paige had the best question of the entire press conference. The press did not hold back today. They were professional. As you expect them to be, but they did not pull punches. They did not lob softballs. And I say they because I had a meeting and I couldn't be on there. As I'm sure other media members were in her and regretted it. But there were. There were some media members today that were Doing God's work. And you'll hear much more from that bloodletting coming up a little bit later on in the show. I don't want to make this about three hours of Dick Monfort and Jeff Bright is because they don't deserve it. They will get plenty of time. But there are other things I want to get to And one of those things is my first guest. Today. He is Toni, Pauline. Is an NFL draft expert will take a left turn a little bit. Talk some football after this. Chief Buccaneers Super Bowl 55 coverage from Westwood One begins Sunday at noon. Kickoff at 4 30 on extra sports 1300. Welcome back Dr. Time Sports. Ryan Kauffman with you, and I am joined by my next guest. If you're looking for NFL draft knowledge This is the man to go to Has a terrific podcast on the believe podcast network. And he is Toni Pauline joining me right now, Tony. Great to have you back on the show. How are you? I'm okay. Thanks for having me back. Yeah, my pleasure. So you've been doing a little bit of a sleuth in a little bit of reporting lately on the dish on Watson stuff. You could save us all a little bit of time. Just go ahead and tell us where he's going. And then we can. We can move on with our lives. I don't know that anybody knows at this point where he's going. I mean, I said it to senior ball. Smart money from insider says the Jets of the front runners. I've heard I also heard the suitable he prefers Miami. And you know recently within the recent, there's two people are kind of hedging as to whether or not he's going to be traded because you know, Houston really wants to keep it. They said that I don't know that anybody's gonna want to pay the price. It's going to take to bring in tow haul into Shawn Watson, especially when you saw what happened this weekend with the Jared Goss. Matched average rate. So There's no there's no definite so I mean it could be the Jets. It could be Miami. It could be. He just he just stays in Houston. I'm curious. You bring up the trade with Matthew Stafford in Jared Goff. What was your perspective on that deal? It was bizarre. I mean, it was it was done is a great trade for the Detroit Lions, but from the Los Angeles Rams point of view. I mean, There is little margin of error for the Los Angeles Rams. If this trade doesn't work out, it's gonna put them behind the eight ball for a long, long time, because they're not going to happen. You know, they obviously don't have draft picks. That they gave away young quarterback. I guess the situation with the coach of the the conflict with the country's just untenable they had to move on from him. It's a very risky move for the Los Angeles Rams, who Giveaway. Huge amount draft picks to move up and get Jerry gab so You don't mean If this is not work out for the Rams, they will be in the hole for a long time. Were you, Jared Golf fan coming out cow! Woz. I thought he was going to need some work is gonna need some hand holding. I thought he had great upside, but I absolutely did. Like Jared Goff, Toni Pauline my gas. He is the host of believing.

"He's basically irresistible to people for the same reason. You can pretty much only work at a carnival. He is not going to prove or disprove about himself or to himself. He has no shame. It's cool, bro. I'm woke. Now. Here's your host, Ryan Kaufman. Is there a football game this week? I can hardly tell because our lives have been wrapped up with this. Nolan are not a trade and I told you yesterday We would continue to talk about it because at some point, Dick Monfort and Jeff Bright Ege would speak and speak. They did today, boy, did they say a lot of words? Lot of words over the course of about an hour. Earlier today. And there is one thing. Above all else. That the Rockies and Dick Monfort I want you to know. If I had my brothers, I would rather have Nolan Aaron Otto, but it was no lynch choice. He wanted to move on. And you know, I I've speculated over the last year. What? Why? On dive talk to Nolan a lot about it over the last year, but The fact remains that I think he just felt it was time for him to Seo. Try something else out. This is all on Nolan Dick Monfort. Over and over again. Today reiterated that it was not the Rockies intention. It has nothing to do with the pandemic. It has nothing to do with his relationship with Jeff Bride H or the promises the organization made him and then did not follow through on. Nolan wanted a change of scenery. But then That's kind of weird that he said that because Um as Maybe Dick Monfort is not aware of No. One ARN Otto spoke. Today because he had his own. Zoom. And listen to what he said when asked about his relationship with the Rockies, and whether the souring of that led to him wanting out everything shipped. The rocks is just fine. You know, I think Listen, I'm gonna speak here and talk about The bad things. There's no There's no bad things. It was great. I had a great time in Colorado. I loved it there. You know, Like I said, I did the best I could. There have no regrets. You know, I just didn't work out. The last few years has been tough and Context. Like I said, there's a good big move. That's just part of this part of the game, unfortunately, but it is what it is. And I couldn't be happier to join this team. But, you know, Yeah, the last few years I've were tough in Colorado. Um and, uh, you know, You know, I'm not really part of the team anymore, and I don't have a whole lot to say about where they're headed and where they're not. You know, I just know that I'm joining a great team and I did the best I could there and just keep it moving. So I don't know a little cryptic, a little evasive admittedly from Nolan or not know when it comes to the Colorado Rockies. Doesn't totally sound to me. Like he demanded to leave. Doesn't sound like he was somebody who was overall, extremely unhappy with the team to the point that he would hold his opt out, which he did not give himself Jeff Bright Ege put it in the contract. Doesn't sound like Nolan are nado. Was 100% dead set. I'm leaving. Maybe he's lying. Maybe Dick Monfort and Jeff brought it. You're telling the truth. I'll let you decide whose side of this you're going to be on. I get paid to give opinions. I'll give my opinions and I'll just tell you That I do not believe a word. That came out of either Dick Monfort or Jeff? Brightest his mouth today, not a word. Jeff Bride, Ege. Was asked What led to this How could this have happened that just two years after signing Nolan are not O to a lifetime contract. That he could be now a member of the ST Louis Cardinals and Oh, by the way. The ST Louis Cardinals per the trade agreement will not have to pay no one are not owe a dime this season. The Rockies are trading No one are not. Oh, To the cardinals, who are going to get no one are not a services in 2021 for nothing. For free. Here's Jeff Bright Ege. On how things have come to this overtime. Sometimes relationships change. And this is not an easy necessarily an easy industry to be in people are competitive. Hand and human beings change over time. Our feelings? Um what's important to us on And you know it. It's Zanotto always a straight line, and it's not always simple, and it's not always easy, but I think my point is that at the base of all of this, this relationship was Uh, a strong belief that I've always had a Nolan ever since I first got to know. But that's not the issue. The issue is not what you think of Nolan are not of the baseball player. We know you think he's a good player. We all think he's a good player. We are everyone. Leaves that Nolan are not always a great player and that the Rocky should have signed him up to the long term deal. That's not in question here..

"We're not gonna Attack each other. As Rockies fans like you're not a big enough Rockies fan or your affair weather? We're not gonna do that. Because we have a common enemy. We have to common enemies in Dick Monfort and Jeff Bright Ege. If you choose to go to a game in the future, that's fine. I don't see how I go to another Rockies game. I really don't. Unless it's for my job. And when it's for my job, I get him for free. I don't know how I am going to spend a single dollar. On Iraqis ticket and it breaks my heart. It breaks my heart because I grew up in those left field stands. Spending my summers getting squirted by, uh Sergeant Earth Man's squirt gun. Yell that Dante Bichette. Every game to throw me a baseball. I grew up in that stadium. I love that team. But this is this is the final straw. Can't do it. It's not losing. I have stuck by the Rockies through some very lean years. It is not about losing. Is trading of Nolan or Renato is a betrayal of the trust that you enter into with your fan base. They entered an agreement with Nolan are in auto two years ago, pledging their undying loyalty for the next 10 years and slipped in. And opt out after two years. They slipped in that back door and they were always going to use it. Either the losing would get toe are not owe to the point that he would want to leave. Or the losing would get to the point where Jeff Bright, it's would feel he could sit in front of media and fans alike and justified trading. Nolan are not all for the greater good of the franchise. We see right through him. Don't wait. He's betraying he betray Nolan are not as trust By promising him that they would do everything they could to consistently win. And immediately After knowing are not. Oh, put pen to paper went back. On their word. By signing Nolan are nado. They entered into a trust with you, the fan saying your favorite player. Greatest player that you have ever seen put on this uniform is not going anywhere. And they lied to you because this was always the plan. It's just they got fleeced. Even more than we could have expected they would have But they were always going to do this. 5 to 29872. All right manifesto over Your thoughts. Are most welcome on this Monday. Um When we come back, the Nolan are not a deal is not the biggest deal that happened in sports. Matthew Stafford is now a member of the L. A Rams. Why the fact that the Broncos weren't really in on Matthew Stafford? Has very little to do with how much the Rams outbid them and everything to do with how far away George Payton really thinks the Broncos are. That's after we take a look at traffic..

"So if the Rockies air unable to I mean, frankly, if Jeff, right H is unable to sit down in a room with Nolan Coronado and say, Hey, We really want you and can we get a long term deal done? Then I think the Rockies will be forced into a situation where They have to make a move by the trade deadline, right? I mean, that's I mean, that's that's what I think. Bloody Grant. You're going to China. I just had a question for you guys if it comes down to Nolan saying, it's either me or Jeff bright, it's I mean, I know Dick Monfort Zaveri loyal owner. And has kept G M's a long time in the past. Do you think it's a possibility that he would say no one is more important to this franchise to keep him here in Denver, then our GM? I think Dick would be reticent to make that move if it were presented to him as a as you just said if Nolan or No one's agent Said. Here's the deal now. Would Dick with Dick Ponder a move to keep Nolan That that would make Nolan happy about that without acquiescing totally to Nolan's demand. I don't know. I mean, I mean, Jeff Raj. I mean, he's a GM, right means so, Jeff, right? Um I think Jeff's done some good things. But also the Rockies have underachieved so You know, sooner or later somebody has to take accountability of where this team is you nobody we like, but very much, but Somebody is going to look and say OK, did but do as good a job when you lose games at the professional, professional level college level, even the high school level when you lose games You have people that sit back and say OK, that guy should have done this. This this this. So you open yourself to second guessing and that that this same for buddy and that's gonna be the same for Jeff Bride, Ege. And Dick Monfort will say Okay, you know his bride. It's the guy that I want to lead us in the next foreseeable few years, making decisions on how I spend my money mean all those things they're goingto be factored in. You're not going to need a Renato to make that demand. You nail that, Dave. It's going to come down to performance on when you look at these last two rocky seasons, I would think that Dick Monfort is disappointed. I think everybody's disappointed. No question that comes down to ride it. JJ and Bud Black. As much as we love but black. They are going to take a look at this and think. Is this the guy because they thought that they had a team that could win win it all. Last year. They told us that And I'm sure they thought the same thing this year and it's been too disappointed years in a row, so somebody's gonna have to pay you. You're absolutely right. My last thought of this before we take a quick time out you you don't find Hall of Fame third baseman They don't just drop into your lap. So to me. I would first and foremost. I would work on the relationship with Nolan. And if necessary, is agent I would try to make certain they knew. How much we want you as an organization. Now you're gonna have to make the case And I think this is true to Nolan like here. You know, Here's how we're going to try to try to build this thing. You try to make the case that look, Freeland took a step. He is going to be a dude. You know, Marquez. He's going to be a good you've got to make the case to Nolan are nado. Because ultimately with him. It's not gonna be a money thing. I don't think he's already got plenty of money, and he's going to make plenty of money, whether it's here or somewhere else get to make the case that they were surrounding you. Here's the plan for us in the next three years. Here's why I think we can Contend in the National League West. Maybe you've already made that. But it hasn't worked, so I don't know. I don't know how fractured the relationship is between our notto and bright. It's I really don't but I, but I think I think it is, if not broken, I think it is severely damaged.

I guess I shouldn't lump way Davis in because he was he's been better than those other guys Mike done. These are all free agent pickups, by Jeff bridage. They have all not been good in Desmond. Obviously, the highest profile one, and he was out of the lineup today, but he continues to struggle at the plate. And we're going on a thousand to twelve hundred days of this with the Desmond being garbage. Daniel Murphy has not panned out now. I'm not I'm not in the same vein as Woody. I'm not saying let's turn around and trade. Daniel murphy. I think that his hand injury has had something to do with his struggles. But the fact remains that this is another free agent pickup. I Jeff bridage that we thought was going to be great. And it hasn't turned out that way. So at what point? Do we start to have a conversation where dick Monfort, it's willing to open up the pocket book is the right guy writing the checks and I'm not saying fire Jeff bridage? I'm just saying.

I don't think there was a, you know, a lot of hand wringing over the process, but you you still would like to have seen it get done early and your credit Dickman fruit, and Jeff Friday and everybody for taking care of bud and and getting Nolan into the fold, and it's nice to just sit down and talk about baseball and not about contracts when you talk to other players though, right now, I know it's early it's spring training. But how significant are those two contract signings to the rest of the team? They are important there. There's no question, Nevada April. I I think the ball club early on realized what brings not only in terms of his experiences. A player is experience as a manager. But the personality that neat brings in terms of working with players individually collectively has made a difference in the clubhouse and not only is Nolan the most talented player in the Rockies clubhouse. She's also the hardest or for the other guys to see that get rewarded. That's a terrific boost knowing that he's being recognized for what he can do. And and the ball club has their best player in the fall for a long period of time. Mike you there? Yes. I'm here. Are you guys here? Yes. We do. Go ahead. Do you Jack? Do you think the bulk of the working getting to the finish line on the new deal was done while negotiating the one year deal to avoid arbitration? I think there was a lot of that, you know, as people heard Nolan from the news conference a couple of days ago. It was in place. I think that deal, and it was much more about Nolan through it being as meticulous as he is in his preparation, and is he said doing a lot of praying about it to make sure it was the right thing for him. I credit his representatives, and Jeff Freidrich and dick Monfort for you know, giving a laying out a scenario that that Nolan found to his liking and really once he was comfortable. It was just a matter of finalizing things, and they get it done Jack of the Rockies done in the standpoint. I mean, obviously, they got the two most important things put to bed but anything around the fringes that the Rockies may do for the season starts. Yeah. I, you know, I don't think that ever stops smarty. I think there is you know, they're going to watch in the spring here. How things play out in the bullpen. Whether some of the younger guys are. Are able to contribute whether people like and Shaw are set the bounce back. And all of that. I think if anything happens personnel wise between now and the start of the year, it might be on the pitching side. And then the bullpen, but we'll see how the market plays out now fun to watch. So far a lot of movement in this off season. Alright, thanks so much Jack. We appreciate it. Okay. Guys voice, the Rockies, Jack Corrigan, and it sounds like Mike rice, we're going to air.
