College Basketballs Uncertain Return to the Court
"I on thursday. Tupper beat six rate. Kansas ninety awesome performance and then on friday afternoon mark to the gonzaga coach. Confirm that the zags beat auburn on friday morning. Nine hundred sixty seven after a player believed to be julian straw. They're tested positive for covid. Nineteen so norlander. We're gonna get into next credible opening week on the court second. But let's start here where you surprise in an auburn still played on friday after a gonzaga player test positive. I was surprised because my opinion is that if other teams and i'm not saying all other teams but many other teams were in that situation. The game would not have been played in my opinion. If gonzaga ran into the issues it ran into and it was playing in belleville. gonzaga would not have played. It's game on friday. Gonzaga might not have even played a game against kansas or fill in the other opponent again. If you put it in. And i'm i'm speaking from what i'm seeing here and the protocols and everything that goes into place to even holding this in the state of connecticut okay. Gonzaga had a member of its travel party test positive on thursday gonzaga took two different planes to the event specific and has taken two different buses. It's it's doing specifically to guard against this. But obviously there is no full on guarding against this so we played kansas. And we'll get but then you know at least one player as positive another believed to be The players roommate is kept out as a precautionary reason. And the game goes off because and you can speak to a gp. Frankly we'll we'll get to virginia san francisco the minute but i was i was. I was watching that game. So i didn't hear fuse press conference. I've seen some of what he said. They're the relying on the florida health officials as being the ones that were to clear it and the health officials down there made that determination and it might wind up that that determination is going to be okay in the end. But i've received four text messages from coaches to heads to assistance. All of them basically asking why in the hell is gonzaga in auburn. Being allowed to play right now one of them saying if this was us there is no shot in hell that we would have been able to play and so this this is certainly captured. A little bit of attention around the college basketball world understandably so gonzaga's looked awesome. But you can make an easy argument that it that it should not have a have played the game. What are your thoughts. And then what can you share for the listeners. That might not have seen a about what few said in his postgame. Zoom press conference. Okay so mark was clearly asked about it and he said he kept it very simple. He's did we followed turns guidelines not we tournament guidelines were were in place and established. We had this positive test. And then we follow the guidelines and then the florida health officials came in and they contact tracing how they contact tracing. They told us we were okay. We were cleared to play and we play. He kept it. He didn't really expand anymore than that but listen. They didn't do anything illegal. They possibly did something irresponsible but didn't do anything illegal. They didn't act in defiance of the tournament or florida. Health officials noted that florida as a state hasn't taken covid nineteen that seriously to begin with. So what florida. Health officials were okay. Where quite clearly would be the same thing that said california. Health officials are okay. Wis lucky if they wanted to play the game. They're lucky they were in florida as opposed to to somewhere else. And you're exactly right. It's bubble ville or in south dakota. I don't believe this game would have been played. Wichita state got sent home from south dakota because they had maybe a couple of people in the travel and party test positive. They were like okay. Get outta here. You're not playing today. you're not playing tomorrow. you're not playing it off. So i don't know that this game would have been played if it were a tournament. Where you're at or in south dakota but because this was sort of a thing they put together in fort myers as long. Auburn was cool to play and gonzaga wanted to play. they were allowed to pluck. I though was surprised that the game went off. Because i mean we've seen baseball teams. Get shut down over one positive test during the major league baseball season the world series if it would have if the dodgers did not win the game justin turner had to be removed because they got a positive test back of the game so they take justin turner around. They complete that game. The understanding was that game. Seven of the world series would not have been the following night. They would not have played until everybody can test test test for a few days and they make sure it's safe to play and so yes. I was surprised that they played the game. And hopefully nothing comes from it that it doesn't end up being a quote unquote superspreader of it. Because if we an outbreak now at gonzaga because by the way gonzaga tweet video from the locker room after the victory over kansas and they're all celebrating no mask jewish authors in front of mark. Few right in the middle of the celebration. He is believed to be the one who test positive. So hopefully nothing comes of this but if we have a subsequent outbreak at gonzaga or subsequent at auburn gonzaga is going to become the biggest story in college basketball. And it's not going to be a sports story anymore. It won't be because jalen suggs looks. Incredible it'll be because they knew they positive test in their locker room and they played less than twenty four hours putting their players at risk and the auburn players at risk. I hope it doesn't come to that. But if it comes to that this becomes a bigger story than just to college basketball story. It becomes something that's on. Cbs evening news. Yeah we'll wait and see if that does happen. I mean auburn's gotta be you know held equally responsible and all of this because it opted to play the game regardless you know there was no self imposed penalty here. Handed down by bruce pearl. That was not in play on friday and so inherently like. You know the chances. Go up that you're going to potentially be infected. We don't know but it's clearly out there. I mean there are. There are no shortage of schools and athletic directors coaches. Just straight up would not play the game. So we'll wait arizona. State would not play baylor because the baylor coach tested positive. Not even a player who was who was gonna who was on the court with other players twenty four hours earlier right and that came from that even came from above. Bobby's hurley's bobby hurley's had which is the case in a lot of these instances but frankly what gonzaga auburn decided to do it. Just flies in the face of convention in college sports in professional sports that we've seen and we'll will you know we're recording this on friday afternoon. We'll wait and see what's going to happen here. Gonzaga's got some high profile games ahead and we're really enough one of them's blade baylor like if there's if there's one team that's actually going to be good with this like it's baylor. They might just play the game regardless. But we'll wait and see if either of these teams are now forced because if it gets another positive one after that like they have no choice. They're going to have to shut down for two weeks and then ask themselves if playing against auburn was really worth it you know. Was it worth it. Because now you're gonna lose these other games

U.S.’s failure to contain the coronavirus ‘mind blowing,’ colder months will be ‘very tough’
"Everything that's happening right. Now was warned of six months ago. Nine months ago. I i'll i'll say it now. I was on the phone with zeke emanuel back in march and rem annual back in march. Zeke had been talking to the president. I said what are you saying until it said. It's gonna be really bad mr president. It's going to be really bad. You got to get ready and as bad as it's going to be in the spring it's going to be worse in the fall. That was the warning. Donald j trump guide in march and we heard every doctor tell him the same thing every medical expert. Tell him this same thing and of course you had the press conference where donald trump assured us that this would not come back in the fall. Dr fauci said yes. It's going to come back in. The fall and healthcare systems are going to be pressed remembered all the times. Donald trump said we had the best testing of the world. We've got more testing. You see that picture of those cars lined up around dodger stadium. The best testing in the world not even close because he reviews time and time again to implement the defense production act remember. Donald trump saying one person coming in from china and then saying it was fifteen. And then saying we're gonna be fine in the fall. Will the fall is here and looking at this at the lines of people waiting to get a test. It's worse now than ever before. Just as donald trump was warned. Back in march by zeke emanuel justice warned by anthony algae on live television in a press conference. And so here. We are coming up to two hundred thousand new infections a day. Over two hundred and fifty thousand americans. Dead and that number is skyrocketing a shortage of testing our hospital system at a breaking point. This was not stupidity. This was willful negligence. And it's on donald trump and its own. Everybody that's worked for donald trump. It's on everybody inside the white house and it's on every republican that kept their mouth shut because they didn't want to insult the president. Oh yeah now. They don't want to insult the president while he's trying to actively undermine american democracy this past year they haven't wanted to upset the president because well he was lying about the coronavirus and a lot of stupid people really ignorant people believing. That's why we saw. Actually the governor of iowa mocking a mask mandate a couple of weeks before the election but after the election now suddenly a mask mandate is good science. This is willful negligence and it is. It is party politics at its worse it is. And you don't have to take zeke manuals word for it. We heard it in the presence. Own voice on those tapes from bob woodward. He said he knew how serious it was. He knew it was deadly. He called it the plague but he said he wanted to play it down. And as you point out there are press conferences we can roll out the tape where the president would get up in that white house briefing room and say it's not coming back in the fall. This is the worst of it. He'd move aside. Dr fact would say it's coming back in the fall. This is coming back in the fall so we are right where everyone told us we were going to be the differences between march and now eight months. We haven't done anything to stop what's happening right now. The judgement of history is going to be incredibly harsh as bad as it feels right now when we have some space for this everyone can look back on it. Hopefully we get through this rather than later. The fact that our federal government led by president trump stepped aside and let this virus burn through the country. It's unforgivable and it's happening right now and if you hear the urgency in the at briefing yesterday you hear the urgency from the cdc here the urgency from the doctors who come on our show. Dr oester home yesterday. Said this is the most serious public health a moment we've had in this country right now since one thousand nine hundred eighteen and we did start acting like it

Welcome here tell me about that fall. Well i when dealing with my thirty thirty. Th year outlook parkinson's so that that kind of had handle on been ahead. Spinal tumor had surgery on that and it took me a while to learn how to walk again. I'd barely learn what getting when i of course declared independence until they could walk on my own. And i belong in so i got up. Walk into the kitchen swift flooring shattered my arm and all the dean indignities that was for some reason cutting blow so you as you say you were dealing not only with parkinson's for many years you've just gone through this incredibly dangerous surgery to remove a tumor from your spine. Just spend a moment there for a minute. How serious was that spinal diagnosis in was pretty seriously lifting for a while for a few years. But he's been in a benign and static wasn't doing anything from the dodgers. Just watch that check on every now and then so when the last time that checked on it had grown quite considerably was actually on spinal cord itself which then made Something that Attach because they can't in any way touch her to remove some spinal for when you touch it. But johns hopkins adopted feodor. When's your with me. Discuss the risk. The risk of not doing it where i would be paralyzed by now by as we speak from when win puts me that way i realized yeah and then there you are lying on the floor in your apartment in new york city.

Why did you so desperately lose that optimism that to become known for some reason it was almost instantaneous last lemon unknown lemonade Unbelie it was angry myself for taking for granted Detention in the in the care they put into my health in my in my life and you know what family Asked me to be careful. When i said don't be careful. Careful careful Carelessly walking too fast and it was two kind of full of pride of of at my might chievements to understand the risks of taking an inadequate To at risk in all the time engine Physical therapists who put me at risk and anti alexander myself I agree as said about how they push china's within a bum. Catchy raised the land myself. They get passes the nothing it was like. I started thinking with the parkinson's community i Optimism tennessee. And i kind of said it'll be okay and and really there are people that had a misery index lot higher needle. Lend me with a broken arm. Bagging car is these are people who've lost lives homes country family children woodward by bam. Who am i to tell them to be have to miss it online on the slowly a rag or i can see why you would be angry but what about scared was scared to well. Isn't that what happened. Was that came out of that. Here that come off the floor and heavily armed fiction which function in a. I would let examined all these things. Fear aging gratitude. Just all of these things came through my mind. And as i made notes on them out for no reason Lebron you're going through something with take contemporaries in alabama a. He's not that. I said let's deceased together into the story of what happened and how i lost and regained my commitment. How might new. Optimism is kind of a little more informed with a little more realistic eating. Be realistic at the same time. You reminded us for those who need to be reminded how precious thing it is to walk. And i found the way that you described your relationship with wheelchairs to be very powerful at one point in the book said that. Unless you know the person who's pushing you can be a very isolating experience in fact you compared yourself to a piece of luggage and then you went on to say that if we could ever just look at each other in the eye we would recognize our shared humanity. And i just want to thank you for that. Because actually i had never thought of that before and those are probably things. I imagine that you for granted at some stage in your life as as being and i talked about that will move momentum me my life and and how i was always moving in in my job is an actor. Energy do stunts or having physical representations of what was happening or as an athlete another good one persona in so. When i look at things i will shares do thing one to have been nail biting person. My whole life into be can't walk in the other thing about being in the chair. Is that for me personally. I'm i'm i'm someone who is easily recognizable. Everybody knows intense speed familiar with and even if they don't know me as a privilege of what i do but when you're unsure you just a piece of luggage and pushing Order hotel something. He's escaped me from point being open to get five bucks in so you just stay in you push Facing the wall can't get into the verbally again. Like you will not have Beings open as they are. They might as well. Apple's own smoke last bubbles. Is that people to be going on with him. Well let's talk about your acting career. The thing that made it so that people recognize you on the street. You've gotten roles in recent years. The didn't hide the fact that you had parkinson's symptoms but actually incorporated that into the role such as louis canning of courses. The lawyer on the tv drama. The good wife with listen to a scene there. I suffer from a condition turtle disconnect asia which is released a funny word for neurological disorder. And it makes me do this. And this i if you just look at me all of us to it so and i won't mind in the book you say that you're ready to accept the your acting career is over to an extent i i laugh in fact it's something surprisingly something to change but yeah the last couple times. I acted i actually. I haven't played warners again anyway. Resume lines difficulty for some reason. Always been some interesting. Even with. I look at her family. Ties scripted from five minutes Show and i just said they photographic memories Position where i didn't know struggling with the lines Lear capital in time in hollywood going off assessing what. What is the deal. But unlike him in that movie. Who's parading himself really angry when i found myself in that position. I said i'll gable. This isn't working so maybe we'll find some other way to do it or not. Do you also say you may be done with gulf another thing that you've loved. How is it letting these things go or acknowledging that it might be time soon to let them go. Insights about acceptance and gratitude and acceptance. Part of it is what is accepted into circuit. That is what liz i can deal with that. An investing came endeavor to change it. But if you don't accept the and be more blog that be cranny of your life Adjusted so. I accepted the fact that i assume golf club too hard. I fall down in a like boohoo. I'm falling nanosecond. Only now therefore i don't put myself in that position again fall down on but maybe one day i'll be treated in a way or find some way to get so. I don't fall down in the gulf again. I'll be grateful for it. It's just a matter. Is that come compartmentalizing really. It's taking inventory seeing where that fits in your life and the losses that have had are more than compensated for by my family my friends by the role habit in the parsis communities it change to relationships with people on the street to how much i enjoy reading how much film much writing is less to joe you live. I'm speaking with michael j. fox whose new book is called no time like the future and optimists considers mortality and michael. Similar listening to this may have just been diagnosed with parkinson's and that could be very frightening for them as you. Well know in fact you become an ambassador of sorts. For for folks with parkinson's what's your message to people who've just recently been diagnosed as i was talking to manually. Today's few was just diagnosed in like me was diagnosed. Daytona nine Items that was twenty nine years ago. So i did. I said for you. Being diagnosed a twenty nine means for sure no doubt bank on it. Better write it down. It will be here in your lifetime. And how much credit can the fox foundation take for that. I will take not moods. It'd be happy happened. We we are the largest funded research in private sector but never a mission. Our mission is we have a thing. When we first started we about how to structure foundation dissimilar brought up endowments down like e bala money said on this again and said we won't be doing that. Come to go out so we operated on then in the set aside purely motive. Where would you do it. It's your model that each is trying to get this work done as quickly as we can for people in. It's been so yeah. Optimism is is a driver knows every night. You because because there's no sense doing something again at least argue for michael j. fox thank you so much. Be well you to
Kim Ng, Baseball's First Female General Manager, Has Been Ready for Years
"League baseball's first female general manager, giving her first radio interview Marlon's GM, Kim hang Says she's blown away by the support she's received since the announcement. I'm still trying to answer text messages and emails from friends and agents and players and said it's been crazy. The 51 year old says she's ready to hit the mound running. She served as MLB senior VP of baseball operations for the past nine years and as an assistant general manager to the Yankees and Dodgers
Phoenix Suns complete trade to acquire Chris Paul from Oklahoma City Thunder
"Right welcome back. Look who's here perk with us Stephen i'm going to start with you on this one. If the nets do get hardened do they need to win the title. This season having this type of talent downright without question. And i'm gonna tell you why because the pressure is going to be immense first of all your k. d. Obviously everybody's looking at you comparing you to lebron and stuff like that Lebron goes and he assembles a big three. Then ultimately you want up to him and went to golden state and gave the ultimate big three. Lebron sits up de a d. is now in. La so you go to brooklyn you got kyri and then you get a james heart so the pressure will be immense on him. This guy read because of all the things that max has titillated throughout the years and to a lesser degree kendrick perkins when you talk about the lack of leadership there kyri urban may have shown from time to time. He elected to leave cleveland. The go to boston. The situation in boston didn't work out. He goes to brooklyn the only place. Twenty games helped was an issue and all of that stuff plus. He made some headlines. That's an issue. And then you've got james hearted remember. James harden didn't want the white how houston Ultimately he didn't want chris paul in houston and then obviously even though again and kendrick perkins knows this far better than me because he has those relationships with these guys. In particular russell westbrook russell westbrook made sure to reiterate to me. Listen his relationship. With james harden is as is big tom their brothers and they're gonna always be brothers. We did not talk about basketball. Just a relationship that he has with james harden which also articulated over social media. I by the way his relationship with james harden they are brothers and they are tight but that doesn't mean they want to play together so as a result of that rests with westbrook is planning on moving on as a result of him. Moving on james harden is moving on. And so there's going to be some pressure to bear because with all of this money that harden and k. d. and career getting paid along with the expectations. Let's bring in the last element you in brooklyn. New york utah. You're even denver. You're in the mecca the media capital. Now obviously the knicks are in new york city madison square. Got it but we should all be allergic to mentioning championship protection at a new york. Nixon brett at least at this moment atop the faith man leon roads and we'll worldwide west but the bottom line is is blasphemous sacrilegious to talk championships. And and the knicks but brooklyn fall weighs less than ten miles is less than ten miles away. It's still a part of brooklyn one of the five boroughs and there is going to be are meant pressure on manse. If the three of them larry know why go give it their. Kp might be right about this guy at five in milwaukee we might see silly. Do some things we know. Lebron is at whatever but if those three assemble no one is going to be interested in any stupendous as to why they did not win after three guys. You damn right. They need to win the chip because the world the world will be watching. First of all brooklyn is even thirstier for a championship. And i think is a bigger deal than a team winning in manhattan in the sense that brooklyn hasn't had a championship in sixty five years. Since the dodgers left brooklyn in fifty seven but they want and fifty five to go to air like that. But the knicks. You're right it's been almost forty eight years for the knicks but brooklyn is the nets or the team in new york. The knicks don't even exist compared to the nets right now and let me say this. There is immense pressure for them. To win you're right stephen while they're together i'm here saying it doesn't need to be in the first year for example if hardened goes to brooklyn and they lose in the finals and a tough series to the lakers. A team like that. It's all right but they have to win while they're together. Even this year's lakers team. I didn't pick them because it's hard to just throw a team together with guys have been played together. Get all the complimentary pieces right. Get it all right to go all the way. We saw that with lebron and his return to. Cleveland went to a game six of course they had injuries on that team. But that's part of it is coming off the catastrophic injury and we saw it again a result before that when lebron showed up miami with the big three it some it takes some times a year to get it right with guys playing together so i would say while there's enormous pressure for them to win while they're together because k. d. if he's most of themselves even is an mvp caliber player so is hardened and kyri may not be an mvp but he's more than just an all star he's all star plus you have to. Mvp caliber players an all star. And then some you're supposed to win a championship to gather. I don't think it has to be in the first year. And i wouldn't say that it's the kind of pressure for example when katie went to golden state. It's like there was more downside. Like guys you have to win it. If you don't win a championship that sorry i wouldn't. I don't think people will be looking at this team like that. Sorry if you don't wanna chip you gotta get outta the east
Kim Ng Makes Baseball History
"We'll somali i. Can you talk about your own relationship with kim hang. How did you get to know her. I started reporting on the dodgers around two thousand eight or nine with espn. And i'd see her on the field and she always was just kind of calmly standing there and you know just seemed like whatever interaction she had with people were seemed to be efficient and short and so it kind of intrigued me. Who is this person. So we just got to talking like. Oh this is this is coming. She's says gm and all of a sudden she's telling me stuff like we've got this kid kenley jansen as a catcher. You really can't hit those we put them on a mound and the results are interesting. Clayton's working on a slider molly. You should really check it out. But the where she would say it was so matter of fact and so dislike whole-home that that's kind of what stood out to me about her and then we've kept in touch over the years. How would you describe her personality. What she like completely unflappable. I think the first thing that needs to be done is. I've got a really familiarize myself with all. The ins and outs of the players. Deadpans are totally cool under pressure. Like the person you gonna call if you were kidnapped and needed the ransom delivered by noon with no you know without tipping off the police or anything else you. She won't be there. Where are we who these players are. And you know. That's that's at this point. The nuts and bolts of the job. Well for those. Who don't know that much about kim. And can you tell us about her career path so she played softball diversity of chicago. She was an infielder. She was really good. I was really a a sports nut love to play and she then became an intern with the white sox and twenty one years old working in the white sox baseball ops as an intern and at the time the other white sox were very good club had a lot of good young players and it was really just about learning and soaking it. All in absorbing all that i could and by the time she was twenty nine she was brian. Cashman the yankees assistant general manager and that was in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. They won titles ninety eight ninety nine and two thousand now. Let's be clear here. That had she been a man she would have gotten a gm job somewhere else. But that didn't happen. Molly you about saying and how. She operated differently than her peers in l. a. Can you tell us about that. I mean that that dodgers organization was by a bunch of guys who were so emotional so yell at each other so in their feelings she was just sort of just like standing there. Like i can't believe you guys and so it was just like toddlers running around at her feet. Two thousand five. The gm position becomes open and she interviewed for that job. What happens there. She was by all accounts. She was right there and franklin court the former owner of the dodgers wanted to hire her her pedigree spoke for itself. She had three world series rings. She had sixteen years in the business and the owner frank mccord. He wanted the credit of hiring the first female general manager. But what i was told later was that he was scared of the backlash of being the first guy to fire a female general manager. Because as we know it's a cutthroat industry n. gm's they don't their shelf life long even talented ones and so that was one of the reasons he was too scared of that. I guess the mcchord years got really ugly and about i say i wanna say two months before. The dodgers filed for bankruptcy. Because of a court drove the team into the ground. She got out of there and went to work with joe. Torry be again demonstrating how smart. She is molly. You know as well as anybody that kim has been talked about for basically twenty years now as the person who is going to be the first woman. Gm in baseball. Do you have a sense. For how many teams have considered her or interviewed for this position. Because yesterday when i wrote my story i published. I said as far as we know. The dodgers angels the padres the giants the mariners. They've all any reader and within like two minutes. My story going up. Somebody with orioles texted me. Oh we interviewed or to like it was just like everybody is interviewed her. Just sit there going through this anymore. They're just putting me through this so they can fill their quota or whatever i'm not gonna put myself section but she just did not give up and that's really the way a lot of my career has gone is just every step of the way it working as hard as i could give you my nose to the grindstone and just you know getting to the next level but i think this is so valuable to any of us who do have specific dream in mind about something. We'd like to do one day. And that's you know when you call close and you don't get that job that you desperate for just got a flick flush it and let it go and not let it break you to the point where you're not going to try again.

This weekend's cause football schedule dented by covert 19, but there are a host of intriguing games today. Her street reached Davis on SportsCenter on the match up to look out for you know, we always kid about these weeks when it looks like, Oh, it's you know, status quo. Everybody wins and moves on. These are the weeks where a lot of times the favorite show up, and they just kind of go through the motions and somebody ends up getting upset. Don't be shocked to see two or three upsets. I think a team that needs to be careful is Florida. The Gators are coming off an emotional win. Florida is thinking about, you know. Hey, we're gonna be in the mix here. We're trying to get to Atlanta. Be careful against Arkansas. You have fully paid Frank's coming back. I know Sam Pittman. Has covert as the head coach. He will not be coaching Berry.

Marlins Name Kim Ng MLB's First Female General Manager
"Huge story today from the world of Sports. The first we have a first Ah Qiming. Who has worked in baseball. Dating back to 1990. She was an intern with the Chicago White Sox. And then she was an assistant general manager with the New York Yankees, And she was insistent general manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and she's been interviewing and interviewing, interviewing, and today she became the first general manager. Was a female. Who is also Asian. All of it in Major league baseball history. She's gonna be kind of work for the Miami Marlins. Now I was thinking like Did I probably not gonna be able to get Kim on the air tonight because, you know You might be a little bit busy, but you know, the Chicago Cubs have a Rachel holding. And Rachel was a stud softball player, and she has been with the Cubs now. Ah! As a hitting structure in the minor leagues, and she does a lot of technical stuff. And so I reached out and she was happy to come on. She's tweeting about the happy she was for Cam and she joins us now, Rachel, I know this was an absolutely huge day for you for for Kim for the industry as a whole. Oh, yeah, of course. I mean, I know Kim personally, So you know, no one is more deserving of this job, and all you have to do is look at her resume toe understand that she's Probably overqualified in in a lot of ways, just really, really happy for her proud of the Marlins. Just pretty exciting stuff. Were you expecting this to happen? Once you heard that she was interviewed like this has got to be the one I didn't know she was interviewing. I actually, um maybe I just didn't follow it too closely, But I know her journey has put her in an assistant GM position. A few times, So I figure any time there's a GM opening. She should be considered for it So, but I didn't know she was interviewing personally, But so it was, like a total surprise for me, and I kind of dig it. Yeah, For sure. Like just for those who don't know Kim's career path. Just Ah. Thumbnail shot of it. She was an intern with the Chicago White Sox that started back in 1990. Then she became an assistant general manager for the Yankees and 98 left New York to go to the Dodgers in 2001, as in the same position. Then she interviewed to be the GM for the first time in 2005. Ned Colletti got that gig. And now it's been 15 years trying to become a GM. And here she is, What do you aspire to in the game, right? So you got a sweet position right now. But if you know, 10 years out, if you could pick something, any idea what it would be You know, I get this question a lot. I think with the way that the baseball season has gone first, I'd like to get a full year of baseball under my belt. No without a pandemic or anything else kind of derailing that, but You know, my my passion has always just been being in the cage and influencing players. And so you know, both of those things I'm very, you know, fortunate to have the position that I have right now because it allows me to both of those things. As for where I go from here, I mean, as long as I'm not sitting behind a desk and I get to be interacted with the players and put a uniform on and be in the cage. I think that's zef innately where I wanna be.

"You gotta find a way to win this one. Well listen I'm not even going to. Feel your head with stats. I'm not going to talk about the past. I'm just GONNA say this game is the biggest game of Kershaw's career but don't they always feel this way when we're talking about him like it always feels we get to the postseason we're like. You know this is the one. This is the biggest game in Clayton Kershaw career, and it just feels that way. It feels like every time he pitches it is a defining moment in his career. I, mean sometimes though is just hyperbole for radio. Sakes. But game one of a series come on. Could be this one this one to me because. You have the fresh arm. Right? The bats are seem to be electric you facing a rookie. Right You're basically pitching at home right? He'll sins cheating scandal has vindicated you to a certain degree. Yeah. I Apologize For the over Your Jersey season ago you did I don't know if the other people ran over the jerseys apologize but I did probably not but you did. But I did and so it's like it's almost like you get a do over for everything that's happened right? If you screw up more time. No more do-overs. What happens if they could? What if they win this one and then all of a sudden have in the world series, we're doing this all over again though. It depends on the scenario, right? Because this is a game that is a must win. So when the dodgers turned to the thirty, one, million dollar man yeah for a must win. Yeah, he must win. The world series. You GotTa win all of them like. They're all must win I feel like when you lose game to this one one, what the first one and you lose the second one is one, one, two series is over I wouldn't five. YEA, you know it's Kinda you know it's. It's you know what? I'm saying like there are scenarios that are all the scenarios that the postseason pressured to your played. Yeah. But some are more pressured others. It's like. Well, we talked about with game four for the Lakers. Though they were up to one. Felt. Like a must win. Okay and I. Feel this way about Clayton Kershaw legacy. This might be a must win scenario for him because if he loses and we fall now three one, even if we come back and win three and a well and take the series to you feel good with what about in the world series if he blows his game against. You're not gonNA feel great about it. You're not going to feel great about his next start. I'm going to open it up to the audience. How do you feel about? Kershaw right now are you nervous?

Bergman is also here to take your calls on on the dodgers game I want to get to some of the Lakers rumors here in a second, but we only have another thirty minutes here in the show show. In the last segment. Today, we do our NFL picks on Friday, but we don't know how long of a show we're. Going to have tomorrow because it all depends on the baseball games. So we're going to do NFL picks against the spread this week, and here's how we're going to do is that we do it every week. So we pick our I I give us an update George, give us an update. Well, Greg will search that while I explain what we're. GonNa. Do. Show, every week caller plays with us, but if the caller gets the best score they come back. So Craig from Fullerton last week. Or was he from Fullerton I believe. So let me just for Mars based upon his score. Yeah he would. Perfect. So. He beat us I gotta thirteen. You got thirteen. I believe L Z and he beat us both he got he got a perfect score. So here's what happens. We'd pick five games against the spread. And we assign a confidence vote to it the game where most confident in we assign a five the game were least confident in a one but here's the thing we have a caller play with us because we have a really cool awesome corona cooler to give away every week and the person who plays with US wins the cooler. Now, Craig already won the cooler last week. So Craig can't win the cooler game. He just gets bragging rights so we will have to callers on playing with us this week. 'cause we to give away another cooler. That's valued at two hundred dollars so we're going to be doing. At about four, forty five. So makes you tune in for that because we're going to ask you to be specific caller number to call in and participate in our picks versus the spread segment. So in the intern let's grab a couple of calls here. Real quick. Before we go to the basketball stuff Jordan isn't Whittier Jordan what do you got? Wasn't. The. Block Kershaw's history.
"dodger" Discussed on Mason & Ireland
"Boob. How you doing Ma'am Mason? Your faith with that good good. Hey Boo after watching that game last night. I'm trying to decide. If you're the PADRES. Do you feel like the dodgers beat you or that. You beat yourselves. Because of that air was the air on Hosmer was an on the second basement they charge into Cronin worries. I thought it should have been on hosby what happened. It wasn't a great throw but that's what happens with a shift right with shift. He's getting back to the base and he peak to see where his feet were. If you looked at the super slow Mo Econo- wrong-footed himself but hit him in the glove That was a big play and they needed to make it. I don't know what to tell you on that what I do. Think look into this series. I think the podge raise knew that some starter is GonNa have to give them a little bit of length. They're not GONNA be able to get you. Know Eight guys to deliver twenty seven out every single game or nine guys as it was the other game so I don't even know that it really matters in you know in trying to figure out the answer to your question bottom line is they're going to have to score more and they're going to need length from babies tonight. Yeah Zach Davies going tonight. Nine pitchers last night they threw. That makes it really tough on hitters. Right yeah I mean look. It's harder than ever to hit in baseball when you look at you know in the major leagues. This past year batting average in baseball was to forty five that is the lowest since nineteen sixty eight when he was thirty seven. They lowered the mound the next year Now here's the distinction though it's harder than ever to hit it's not harder than ever to score it's the part that people you know kind of sort of paying attention think they understand. But don't you know you I? I don't think the Homerun strikeout game is overly entertaining. But there's a purpose to it. It is the way you score. It is too hard to string three four his together so the way you have to do it is like this going is not down. Leading is down boo. And we're taking a Buksh Ambi- who's calling the dodger Padre series for ESPN radio. I thought on your point exactly on on like you've got to look for opportunities to score. I thought the padres may have missed one last night but I might be being an idiot. Let me ask you when Walker. Buehler was having control problems. Any walked the bases loaded. He went three zero on the next guy and I thought he has to throw a strike. It's a scoreless tie. It's a playoff game. He's going to deliver a pitch right down the middle the PADRES head the take sign on and they took it eventually. Bueller walk worked his way out of the inning. I would think that on that. Some guys are going to be getting green lights on three. Oh pitches or in a situation like that. If a guy can't find the plate you have to take it. I look I don't know I don't think you have to take. I don't think that's being an idiot. Look the one thing about. That's happening as well dove tailing off. You know my previous comment. Guys were the fastball harder than they've ever thrown at before period they also throw at less than ever before so that if you're wondering what the only true fastball count is anymore. It's three. Oh I don't have any rhyme with a guy swinging three. Oh I so I I get your point. I think the only issue you know spots would be you know. Who's at the plate in deciding whether you want to? You want to give it to them. I don't the other thing I would also point out as I don't know that I think it was Grisham. Had to take I I you know we may have just done it himself and there was. That's true strong so by the way that don't like swinging three. Oh and Grisham is a guy that has a really good idea to strike zone. So I'm not sure what to say but in terms of your basic premise. I you're never gonNa have me on this show and we're going to criticize someone for swinging. Three oh I wouldn't either was bad. Yeah Buksh Ambiance with this he's calling dodgers padres for ESPN radio tonight right here on seven to ten ESPN. So I mentioned this early yesterday and it became a reality last night. The padres do this weird thing that used to be done in baseball. But I don't think really gets done very much anymore. It's the stolen base. Put a lot of a lot of dodger pitchers in a position where they had to pay attention. Where maybe they don't normally. What do you make of that? I think look. I'm not going to sit here. And dismiss stolen base entirely and the fact that they stole the most bases and get it at an above average rate. That's what I like to be clear. Analytics doesn't like the doesn't dislike stolen bases analytics dislikes the caught stealing the risk versus the reward. You're wrestling and out. Which is way more valuable than ninety. So with that point that I would say in broad terms is this. The stolen base is a one run play. And if you think you're going to be able to get a single in the second and a stolen base in a single to score and then a single in the fourth and a stolen base and then a single to score you got a much better. Chance percentage wise of just stay anchored at first. Because there's a chance he could get thrown out and maybe somebody'll hit it out of the park now. In this part the ball does see. It does seem to be playing really. But you know the problem is so if if it's look if they're giving you the ninety feet and it also there's gotta be some intangible pressure it puts on the Pitcher to throw a good pitch. I get it. But it's still just ninety. Feet versus risking outs and outs are valuable. And it's not going to put the crooked number up and that's how you score as I'm watching the dodger or as watching the as Astros game and alleged Messiahs just at a two run homer to tie the game. Yeah the the Astros will not go away. It's unbelievable and they're doing a tiger stadium. Four four by the way bottom of the fifth and places to be doing at dodger stadium that we're talking too shabby all right book. I'm one of the great mysteries of my career in. La is a sportscaster is really season. Clayton kershaw versus postseason Clayton Kershaw. There like two completely different people and it makes zero sense to me. It never has. And I'm like Charlie Brown with the football. I see this matchup tonight and I say Kershaw is going to dominate. He was great in round one yet. Thirteen strikeouts he's had a great year. He's healthy. He hasn't had too many innings this year. Kershaw is GONNA mow the padres down tonight. Am I being kind of thinking with my heart? Rather than my head is is is postseason Kershaw going to rear. Its ugly head in your opinion well. So here's The let's start with with this component you're doing with your heart because it's your gene and right who doesn't like Clayton Kershaw. We'll talk about one of the greatest pitchers that's ever lived in Clayton. Kershaw stop today would go down as one of the probably ten best pitchers of all time and when you contemplate. What's taken place and what's going to happen. The first thing I'd.
"dodger" Discussed on Mason & Ireland
"ALL RIGHT We are lucky enough to have calling into the show right now. On a very big day for the Los Angeles, dodgers team President Stan Kasten Stan. Thanks for coming on. How are you man? I'm okay. How are you guys? Stan. I was thinking about you today. Because you've spent a career in sports, and if I, told you years ago when you were running the braves, and you were running the Atlanta Hawks that in twenty, twenty, a guy's GonNa get a twelve thirteen year deal for almost four hundred million dollars. You probably would have laughed me out of the room, but I. Actually think this is a good deal for mookie and a good deal for the dodgers. What do you think? Yeah I think. I joke and Andrew and I were joking about this just last night when I got here, I had never had a payroll over one hundred million dollars and I and I skipped the hundreds and one right to two hundred. Obviously hobbies hand. You never had a cable near a hundred and. This one hundred and two hundred now. He did a contract three hundred so Yeah, we. We try to keep up weekend. Justify it. As we demonstrated from the first day, we got him because of the strength of the marketplace because. Each fans will support us if we're smart about those kinds of investments. The sponsorship and media landscape is such that it will work. It doesn't work that way. But it does work here. And I. It's a great day for us because it really is a cap on a number of years of building towards so You know the goal remains the same. We want to win the world series this year and we're GONNA WANNA win next year in the European here after that, so this is what we try to do. Fortunately, we have a great guy. in Andrew Friedman That puts us in a position. To be able to contend every year, and and this as you say, is a very big day, dodgers President Stan. Kasten is with us. Mason in Ireland seven ten, ESPN so stand when you originally the deal was made for Mookie Betts was in your guys that you were going to keep him long-term. Certainly in our head that we were gonNA, try, but there was no way to. Know How that would work out. We did have some talks in. Training Camp and then the world ended. You may recall no yeah I remember. So It got picked back up a couple of days ago. Way that just kinda worked for both of us, but the goal always was to keep him here, but you know it was going to be best efforts. Was Nothing. do or die about it I mean the franchise would've gone on. If. We didn't sign him. we tend to be reasonably disciplined, but we also tend to be aggressive when we can be. And this was one of those times, so this was always certainly a goal, but you know you never know how those things are GonNa work out. SAN CAST in from the dodgers is with a stand a. it's been weird. I'm sure for you to watch these Games at Dodger Stadium these these exhibition games and wonder what that renovation you guys spent all that time and money on in the offseason. Really would look like if we could go to the ballpark. Have you and your own head ruled out fans, even limited fans this season, is it? Is it already done that? WE'RE NOT GONNA get to see this season or Zen. Still some you're holding onto. Look I having ruled out. We have all kinds of seating plans. If we're allowed, you know ten people thousand people ten thousand people. We have those things ready to go, but based on the information we have today. On the information we have from health authorities, I think the chances are remote for this season at least through September does that include October? I couldn't tell you but right now I would say they are less likely than many other cities have fans in the stands. The good news is yeah. It's weird being at the ballpark with nobody there. is, but it's really not that weird on television. All of us are going to have. An opportunity to watch every night on television. The Games are gonNA sound very similar. People make fun of the cutouts, but they really are important thing use especially. On TV so on TV. I think the game is going to be as much fun. But maybe a little different as yeah been, and we all have that look forward to at the ballpark or not stand. There's a conversation John Hayman's reporting with the MVP PA about still for this season, trying to expand the playoffs to sixteen teams Are you in favor of a sixteen team playoff plant? I'm in favor of expanded playoffs. I am a general. I'm in favor of it. Spend the plants. I don't know the specific Clinton being discussed and I am proud to tell you. I have no knowledge of any. So. So there is you know so I I couldn't leak something if I wanted to I. Don't know about that if it's happening. I think it would be great, but I don't know whether it's happening. Stan. Here's why we are worried about it. I like expanded plants and I. Come from the NBA. You spent time in the NBA. They've had sixteen teams forever and it's great, so the idea. Sixteen teams is excited about it but I as a dodger fan, I think we got a great chance to win the world series this year. I don't WanNa. Get knocked out in a three game series by an inferior team. Is that a legitimate concern? I suppose it's a concern. I suppose, but you know we we. Should do what's best for fans was should be what's best for the sport I think that's the best thing for sports going forward. as you know we. We can't worry about how things are going to work just this year. Because as we've seen stuff happen every year, and so we just. We just don't know but I think it's a good thing sports. I think if baseball makes a deal, it's up to to do that. would be.

There's some things that are put up on the walls. The Jackie Robinson statue is a very recent addition. But there's no one place this year. They cover Yankees. Head monument, reds, have a hall of fame, just one place where you could go and just sort of have a little dodger museum. I think what they're trying to do this year with the legends of dodger baseball program, which is sort of how can we honor people who are not actually, in the baseball hall of fame and retire their numbers, but still say, hey, you had a great dodger career. So Steve garbage got inducted a few days ago. Fernando's getting inducted later this summer. I think they would like to get a place where they can commemorate all those careers and also display some dodger history, I don't know that it necessarily would be a permanent building. But at least a space in the stadium that they can change the displays from time to time legends of dodger. Baseball calling they are the problem is that everybody says for NANDA, volunteer, LA's number should be retired. I don't think there's any doubt about that. That for the impact he had for this organization, not only on the field, which is awesome. But off-the-field basically ignite in tire segment of a fan base that still as they thought deal. Yeah. But the dodgers policy is we only retire numbers of people in the hall of fame. Right. I don't agree with that policy, but it's they're both. So this is a way for them to say, look how can we honor people who've not been elected to the hall of fame. And so as we mentioned Fernando's in Steve garvey's, that's cool. Yeah, that's cool. So they're going to do something for doing this stuff like that. That's cool. Now a couple of weeks ago you wrote about the dodgers in the minor leagues. Now for me would I know the dodgers, my only team is Rancho Cucamonga able team? But then I read your story that they wanted to team in the valley. Yeah. What had happened is interesting thing. I wish I knew about it when it was happening eight years ago. Yeah. They weren't a position where one of the owners of the dodgers, Peter Guber is also known the warriors big Hollywood guy. He's owned minor league teams. This company is owned about eight over the years. So he knows that operate a minor league team. And when the dodgers new ownership group came in, he's part of it, they were looking for a triple A team and so- goober in the dodgers. Bought Oklahoma City triple team. And so they control that the idea came up. What about if we could own essentially control in run a California league team and Guber was friends with a guy named Peter Lowy, who is the CEO of Westfield, the big mall operator international company, malls all over the world. They run the malls along to paying a canyon boulevard in the valley, which is to paying plaza, the promenade, and inbetween they've opened something called the village to paying the villages paying find paying applauses fine, the promenade was dying. So they said, hey, how about if we took that space and turn it into a minor league baseball stadium? And a lot of things we hear about stadium development today as, oh if you put a ballpark, or sports rain or something there will be development around that people will build restaurants. They'll Bill shops because all the customers.

"Maybe but not when you're there every single game but you had a cool star. You do a lot of stuff covering sports business for the LA times. And you also have huge back on the baseball. We're going against the Expos, but we're because, you know, you love the Expos, but you wind down San Diego when you're the story about the food that they have down there. And I haven't been Padre game in years. I've been to the outside because they have that stone brewery out there just stay out there with the brewers that they have, and I love the IPA's but I haven't been stadium in a while. It just sounds like this is where I need to go. It is. And if especially if you're a dodger fan because there are thousands of dodge. Fans every year. Some of them drive. A lot of them take the train, which is a really fun way to go. It goes right down the coast drops you off within walking distance of the ballpark. Your team is almost always gonna win because the Piedra his last fears terrible. Now they're good and competitive, but the place is pretty much overrun by dodger fans and seed walk around you'd see all these people with dodger hats and sweatshirts jackets with smiles on their faces because they're carrying these food crazies great tasting food items that they can't get it Dodger Stadium. So the number one thing of reporting is observe what you see in the next question. So I said, hey, what do you guys think about this food, and like, well, we wish we could get at Dodger Stadium. Now. What's the problem with Dodger Stadium food? Well, let me circle back quickly to the Padres are doing when the Padres decided upgrade their food their chief executive for the business. I told me the first thing they did is they tweeted, they went to their fans on. Twitter a said who's got the best hamburger in San Diego. And the answer came back, a local chain called ho dads, and I mean. Two places beach got downtown. That's it. Hoda, Austin, beaches, good, real good Padres reached out to hold ads and they were able to work a deal or dads would sell at the ballpark Hoed inside the porn inside the park. Oh, and the thing that a lot of restaurants, worry about, is, you know what if we go inside a ballpark is, again, a taste as good as, if we serve it in the restaurant, because the last thing you want is people coming up expecting what they get in the restaurant getting something that doesn't taste as good. And then telling everybody had your product is what the Potter is have been able to do is set up kitchen space for all these restaurants..

"And look I'm not smart enough to to describe as a hitter exactly what he's doing different. But time and time and time again I've seen him get to that ball which confounded him in the last two postseasons that down and in slider when I've seen him attack off speed pitches down in in this year. He's doing damage. He's doing damage with everything. And I think there's something to be said, it should not be even come up in the first place that when you go to the park every day going not only am I gonna play today. But I'm hitting the middle of the order today. And I'm the man today. That's what's happened to Cody belt. That's where I think the dodgers have made the Justice here where they're taking guys who weren't platoon players that they didn't play every day. And now, they are I think there's a different mentality. When you come to the ballpark saying I'm in there, and I'm every single day. And that's when Cody Bellinger feels like and is doing the poll question for this week because on Sunday night baseball next weekend. We have the cardinals in the cubs from Chicago, Tim, give me the best acquisition of the off season. From these four players, Patrick Corbin, Paul Goldschmidt rice Harper or Manny Machado. Of course, the tide is Sunday baseball being Paul Goldschmidt with the cardinals off the good start, right? Right. They've all been great. I just saw Manny Saturday in Washington. And he was in great spirits with his new team those fries there he played awfully well rice Harper's done some tremendous things Patrick Corp. It's been the best starting pitcher on the national. So the answer is all of the guys that I'm gonna go with Goldschmidt. Because I just think what he's done offensively and defensively has changed..

"And I think now I mean, the the problems even more Boston is become even more pronounced now because the fastball and the slider almost like the same pitch. Right. I mean, he's kinda let me ask you this. If if we didn't have it on the scoreboard where it comes up ninety eight slider on the scoreboard would could you? Tell different slider changeup. I couldn't I can't I watching box. I can I can I can tell his curve, I know is curve. I know his fastball the rest of it, and it's not crucial. I'm just saying this is general Pinon. Yeah. It's hard. It's hard to tell a lot of times like you'll. I mean to me it's always been kind of reaction of the hitter. Right to to me at all expense. You know, you go to spring training. And you see these guys throw bullpens. I can't tell the difference between I ninety eight honestly like eighty to be all it all looks ridiculous. That's actually stand there and watch it. Yeah. But you know, when when you can't tell us like say like when Strasbourg I came up remember just like the guys couldn't even get the bad. Right. So then you kind of know like, okay, this is really hard because professional hitters can react to it. If Kershaw is back with the dodgers, or whatever it is decided to do his legacy with the dodgers always going to be talking about what he didn't do in the playoff that's unfair. But you know, what I think this time goes by, you know, take a look at a guy like Harris. Now, who's kind of as time has gone by kind of become in some ways more, you know, people that like watched dodger baseball in that era have very warm feelings toward him. I think the opposite. I mean, I think Carol's is should be lot more famous than ease with dodger fans you saw when he came out to cut one of the first pitches. It was a nice cheer. But I Eric. Air was all time Homer leader in team still is maybe I think I think it's amazing. The kind of the secret it's the the secret out loud around. Here is around town is that everybody wants to say cross best pitcher implant live Kershaw, but everybody stung by the postseason. And I think that's I think you're right battle the standards in L A R differ than anywhere else. And you have to perform at the highest low. Well, yeah, I mean, I just talking about comparing Colfax. No, there's no comparison at all sandy one. And he didn't. And the weird thing. I think is that actually nationally Kershaw enjoys I think better reputation than locally. Yes. Right because nationally people look at stats, right? They look at the regular season numbers as a local fan. What you remember? You know, if you're a kid growing up you remember moments. Well, Kershaw hasn't had those moments those great you had a great column we said people remember Kershaw for either. Harms above his head or hands on his knees. Looking down when it's one of the other. But as much as we talk about as postseason failures, remember, he he mowed down the Blanda Braise this year in the I remember because when they started hundred first, and then they started him second. He was upset and he was like take that. But that was Atlanta breeze. And it was also at home. Yeah. In during the day. And you know, they talk about how the first four innings of day game at dodger state. You can't. You can't see the ball to Carol two hundred seventy homers, the A dodgers all time leader has three eighty nine. Yeah. The franchise LA dodger all time home dodger all he didn't throw out. They had a full slate. A full slate of postseason games three postseason rounds. He didn't throw a first pitch. He caught one. Didn't thought. I bitch. Dave roberts. Love him. I love him. And he didn't a tough spot. He had a bet. I'll I'll start. He had a bad. He had a bad World Series. Yeah. I think what is it? They say, you know, man, strengths and his.

"I think the front office was negligent in how they went about putting together this team that clearly had flaws, and it was just kinda like, well, we're going to count on the other teams in our division to be bad. We're going to count on the fact that the rest of the league is. Bad and we're still going to kind of back into the World Series. And hope we get lucky right because and that's kind of their general theories. Get to the playoffs in the playoffs are crapshoot you right? You talk to anybody in the front office. They will keep telling you that plow crap crapshoot. Right. So just keep getting in every year. And at some point the balls is going to kinda roll your way.

I think the better team won last year. I think that the dodgers actually we're kind of fortunate to push it to a seventh game that Houston was clearly the best team this time. You know? Yeah. The brakes didn't go the dodgers way. But like, you know, those things come out to watch at some point the better team wand up winning, you know, and I think they're going to have a lot of questions kind of moving forward from here negligent negligent.

This is if you're get the if you're going to get their win the damn thing if you have the most money anybody in baseball, you had the largest attendance of anybody in baseball. You have a great TV deal, which nobody can watch. But you making a lot of money eight billion dollars on TV deal that cut out most of Los Angeles. If you're making all this money have always ask.

You know, all the analytics offer thing that worked on regular season. Does it work in a short series and elite team a better it just doesn't work before the series started? Did you have? Prediction, who you thought was gonna win it. Yeah. I mean, I I think I predicted the dodgers in seven, but you said dodgers at five I said dodgers at four. Okay. Yeah. Just trolling people. Now, you're calling dodger sweep you. Here's still trolling people. Here's my here's my my that Bill. Dillon said dodgers for once game one ended we ask for new predictions. He said Red Sox in for. Not dodgers and five or six four. Why are you wanna trope you why you won't play with their emotions you got? I mean, the seriously entire city, man. Felt like this about sports when I was like eight. Remember, there's an entire city. They're generations that live in die with the dodgers. In about Bill said about the devastation like I was there. I interviewed you guys before the game. And then I was walking around the crowd in. It just fell a game five. Everybody was nervous. I'm mind euchre shot gives up the home run right away.

And they're like, it's an accomplishment to get to the World Series. I back to back and forty years, but it's still disappointing. Is it a failure? What's the word describe this season Dylan? Well, I think here's the thing is that the league was bad the entirely was down like they should have gotten back. You know, in the fact that they got back with that team to me honestly shows how bad the NFL was probably the best five six for coming from the the American League to me the word is actually negligent..

We're gonna get them a lot during the NBA season. And of course, LeBron's making news in LA, but saw the dodgers now for me thirty years ago. Ten years old, Kirk Gibson, home run and topped out of the bed. And I hit my head on the ceiling. Bates. I'll share it with my brother and thinking, okay, the dodgers are gonna go will again last year. I saw them at the World Series. But they haven't won a World Series in a man who was there in nineteen eighty eight covering the dodgers, you know, him. You love him the one and only Bill. My favorite columnists LA times question for you bit in bid Gibson, hit the home run. It was about eight thirty at night. So you in bed at eight thirty. I was laying in a bed in bed, and they've been seven kids there's a room in the house, so those so you're watching the TV from the bed, and then I jumped up from the bunk bagels, the top bunk, and I hit my head and ceiling.

So I knew the names of like jimmer in Alabama and malformed all the names at times head so thinking kid they're going to the World Series game. But they have it one. I had a similar incident in eighty eight. I was in my seat and auxiliary press box covering the game that was doing one of the sidebars. So it's getting toward the end of the game. It's getting the last any I gotta get downstairs. I gotta get my quotes dodgers gonna lose this game. On the mound for the as there's no way to dodgers going to win this game. So I get ready. I go to the elevator door opens. And I get on the elevator. And they get ready to close in this older woman in a Walker's coming up so elver to hold hold the elevator. Hold on. Let this nice lady on the elevator. And as nicely getting on the elevator. I hear the announcement now betting Kirk Gibson. Holy crap. I jump out of the elevator just as it closed. Ran back to my seat us all the home run. No way press box. Reserve love. So I was sitting up there. So I almost missed a home run. I saw I did a lot better than the dude who I think the most famous famous home run is. Of course, the pump. This the second most famous image is the brake lights what I'm talking about the loan brake lines. Do wanna do? Oh my God. I'm trying to leave early. And I missed the greatest moment in baseball history. Well, that guy emailed me about a year ago brake lights, and I'm like, I just don't know how to vet that. I don't know. Whether it's true or not, you know, I didn't know, you know, I was unsure about that guy. But that's so that's a ticket most iconic image. You know, what the most the biggest mystery the home run still is thirty thirty years later. Where's the ball? They never found the ball. Come on. You didn't know that? That's. You didn't know that I have written columns and calms about this trying to find the ball the ball back is back before memorabilia was a big thing. Yeah.

"So we talked about kenley Jansen who is likely to have a second heart surgery this off season, but is optimism that he'll need fewer than the four to six weeks of expected recovery for his irregular heartbeat. To come back and play before waiting until the off season for that surgery, they have struggled the bullpen without their closer and found out news today that. You had mentioned another player from the dodgers Brian dosier experiencing an abnormal EKG after he complained of dizziness, their second basement. So he said to undergo tests after that abnormal result yesterday, but he is, you know, in the lineup able to play as of now. So a no elaboration from dodgers manager on exactly what's going on with dosier and we don't have an exact timetable on Jansen and Sean. I imagine there's a little bit of panic going on for dodgers fans. I mean, I'll go back to what Ben line said earlier in the program. Now they're still thinking about LeBron James. Look, let's be honest. They got Manny Machado, and everybody was really excited in Los Angeles and for good reason. I mean, you get a bat like that you thinking, oh my gosh, Segers out. He's hurt. This is great. This is going to be perfect as what we need all we need now as a relief pitcher, and then the trade deadline got closer and you're like, okay, all we need now is a relief pitcher who they gonna get, just somebody that can be in the bullpen that can be consistent and it kept going and going, and then the trade deadline passed, and there really wasn't anything of significance that strengthen that bullpen. And I think that's a big reason why you have a large amount of dodger fans that is talked to that consistently talked to me and say that they don't feel like this team is going anywhere. They feel like they can make the playoffs. They can win the west still, but they don't feel like that World Series buzz of like this is our year. We're coming back for it this year. It's going to be us and we're going to get it done. And I think a lot of that has to do with their starting pitching that they have right now in the lack of consistency. From it. It's tough for me to believe that they aren't super fired up just because I remember what it was like as a cubs fan. Now, my cubs in two thousand fifteen didn't make it all the way the World Series, but they did make it to the and it was their second straight and so- heading into the postseason in two thousand sixteen, it felt like that next step was coming and the heartbreak of losing in the year before really just made us hungrier more excited as we added on the dodgers getting all the way to game seven of the World Series. It feels like they should be enthusiastic about a team that seems to about it just not right now. Right now, the hiccup is a bit scary, but I'm surprised that LeBron James at this point is still drawing the eyeballs over over the dodgers what look the dodgers. I mean, look, fans still going, but the expectation of this team getting back to where it was a year ago just isn't there. It doesn't have that same kind of feel now. Can they find it in the next month? September is a long month. Obviously, we're still in the middle of August. There's plenty of time for the dodgers to not only just win the division, but regain their swagger and regain their their footing in the National League. I mean, the National League very competitive races across the board. So it's not like anybody is pulling away like you see the Red Sox doing in the American League east or what we thought the Astros we're going to be doing. But I just don't think that the dodger fans themselves look at this roster and look at the pitching staff and go cases a world championship team. That was, and that's the goal, right?.
