For half a century. So if anybody knows how to do it, he does. So, Yeah, I think he does things in a ferry ASL E.

Welcome back to america i. What is the story that you sent me. Just literally seconds before you came on air literally just broke so we have talked to lawyers and a minister representing several hundred navy seals. The most elite special operators are military trains in fact that caused a half million dollars just to train single seal so these are people put a lot of investment and trust in and they deliver with extraordinary courage and all the operations we know about there being told that if they don't get the vaccine the covert vaccine they will no longer be able to play with their seal team's essentially they will be sidelined and their seal cares will be over. This is very important because some of these sales already had a covert so they believe they have natural. And you don't need the vaccine and others of them have a religious objection to they. Do not believe that there's enough data on the safety to inject it into the body and they're asking for more time they're not anti vaccine because they take lots of vaccines as part of their deployments. They're just concerned about the safety data on this particular vaccine and re pentagon's response according to two lawyers and one of their ministers is that if you don't get it you're not going overseas again well. In van case capacity to deal with terror threats will be drastically diminished. We don't have unlimited supply of seals. John so this. This is a very serious on Impact upon our capacity to keep americans. Safe

"It appears a legal. Pathway immigration will not be part of the massive three and a half trillion dollar economic bill sabbath parliamentarian the official advisor the senate's rules and procedures ruled against including it in the bill. Senate democrats made their case to include a path to legalize millions of immigrants in the massive economic bill arguing their plan to give roughly eight million immigrants and opportunity.

In a complicated budget process that would have allowed democrats to pass the bill with only a simple majority and avoid the sixty vote

Facebook Has Struggled to Address COVID-19 Misinformation on It's Platform
"From the start of the pandemic facebook and it's ceo. Mark zuckerberg have talked publicly. About how seriously they take this crisis. Here's what zuckerberg told cnn back. In april twenty twenty. So i think one of the most important functions that facebook and our acts can do right now is help. Connect people with authoritative health information and experts at the same time to limit the spread of misinformation. But despite that goal facebook has struggled to address foles health information on its platforms. That's continued throughout the rollout of cova vaccines and they became so widespread that well. Here's how president biden described the misinformation back in july really look only pandemic you have is among unvaccinated other. Killing people policing unsubstantiated. Health claims has become a key problem for facebook one. The company has struggled to address even after warnings from employees reporters. Sam schechner is part of the investigative team. That's been working on this story. And he joins me now. Hi sam thanks for being here. Thanks for having me so sam. I think a lot of people who've been on facebook in the last year and a half have seen misinformation about the pandemic and about vaccines. Why is it so hard for facebook to take it all down. I think facebook would say this is a tough problem with a tough adversary. It's not like anti vaccine or new to facebook. They've mobilized on social media and in particular on facebook and in our reporting we've seen internal documents that show that this was an issue. This is something that they tackled in the years before the pandemic they were working on ways to identify who were in these antitax groups they develop policies that some you know certain types of content should be removed and when the pandemic hit these policies were in place so if public health authorities said that a certain type of claim wasn't just false but could cause imminent harm than they would remove that but that's a pretty narrow standard

"first half" Discussed on Fantasy Focus Baseball
"Would i add. Jose iglesias labor. Probably not but i nico. Horner has a chance to be better than labor tourists in the second half of the season. I know we keep doing labor. But he's got three home runs at the all star break. So what are we. What are we doing here. Yeah us at all to beat the narrative into the ground around somebody a player that one of us just generally doesn't like like i mean. Look eric did a like laboratories this year and was dead on. He's had a terrible year. I didn't see this common though. I mean how do you go from thirty home. Runs to a pace for six but like hairs guys with lower. Slugging percentage yelich. I would trade for matt shelvin of oakland very good june. Yeah i would trade for yom moncada slugging three ninety eight. Okay if healthy yeah. I would say he's never going to run. You know like we thought. But he's only got five. Home runs to more labor charleston. I still like him. And he resorted was seven. Home runs and nine steals. Who saw that coming but he can do better. We know he's got more power than that. Well lemay you don't have to trade for lemay who i have to think so. He's a better player than this. I mean indoor so much name value right like right now right exactly like anybody who has door is stuck for the long haul by all means reach out. But i don't expect you're going i just i just had somebody asked me a question about you. Know bringing labor tours back into this work another counter another trade counterpart just traded for the guy. And i got a question about. Do i give these to kind of useless players for gleyber torres. You've got to ask yourself. Why would the person with that do that. And that's where you're at with wind door. Why would you gonna give two guys who just doing nothing for francisco indoor. Why would the personal with linda do that. Why would i think lindores are goodbye. Low so i would think is too but i think you're gonna have to pay with a guy who's performing very we. We have to reevaluate linda warriors for next year. He might see a just a fifteen homer fifteen still guy. Best to seventy which is fine but at the top fifty pick. He is a much better real life than fantasy player. And you raise that question in march. And i remember i was in. I was intrigued and moved them down. Accordingly i had no shares. Because i didn't think he was a second round pick and most people did. But i didn't see this you know. He's been better in june as well. So if you're going to buy chap and you have to buy all indoor bef wants to know who your favorite over. Achieving pitcher is to keep rolling in the second half this is when comparing era to expected era. Kyle gets in taiwan walker. Marcus stroman oh man insen walker stroman. I mean this is. This is the question from a month ago. I have quite. I have concerns about all three performance to some degree. Stroman have any strikeouts in his last outing right. Because i have on a team and i'm like what is that all about you. Were on kyle gibson. You were right about that. I did not see that coming. I mean it wasn't. It's not really ballpark related. On kyle gibson is it. I mean it's just like it's been a very very pitching friendly ballpark but could control. Yeah you know so and good strike. Our i mean how gibson striking out this many batters. That's that's part of it So give him credit. For that. Taiwan walker taiwan walkers. Isn't he the best. Come on my my instinct tells me i'd rather have taiwan walker and i don't have much more than just the gut is saying so and it's a big god so it knows what i'm talking about. I guess okay on that good weekend of eating so yeah clearly i probably would. Cash in the cow gets chip. I think i would too. I think stroman fine. You know you're going to get you know. We rank them not in the top. Forty starting pitchers but but inside top fifty five not strike out guy similar question. Nick pa- vada. No i no. I'm begging both of them in labor and it's been glorious. It was herman marquez. I'm on my kids is really good. Is he only gonna get better if he gets moved. You know what he's pitching. Fine court right now coors. That's what i'm saying. Do we want him to stay in coors. Like is this that weird. I don't know how. I don't know what colorado is going to get for. I think it's going to be moving right. It doesn't make sense for them to keep them that's just from trying to maximize the return for them. As opposed to you. You say it doesn't make sense house colorado going to be good in two years if they don't cover story or herman marquess if no pitching and you wanna trade a guy who you put her in marquez on a contender and he is in the top twenty top fifteen starting pitchers you put them on the yankees right. Now is a normal marquez. In the top. Fifteen starting pitchers theoretically the problem. Is there aren't comps for pitchers leaving cores during the year. None of that caliber except for baldo jimenez and the issue with jimenez a comp was that he was already showing diminish stuff in the year he got traded to cleveland. He was bad. In cleveland after a straight was worse there than he was as a rockies pitcher if the yankees trade gleyber torres david garcia to colorado for trevor story in herman.

"Kyle now for trivial hash browns. Kyle hello to you again. hello guys. it's good to be back. I don't like having the whole the whole crew together here for trivia. I want you guys to name the pitchers that have completed at least seven innings at least eight times this season. Who is giving you volume. In this crazy era of baseball there are three of them. Don carman don carman not one of them randy lerch rocking closer. We get their third some hash browns before we get into the real guesses. Those players are not a clue. I you could make it be boxers franck. They might be your postman. I have no idea spend my postman actually. Did you know the name of your post man or woman. I post person or mel carrier Now but we haven't been in this house all that line so it's not like we've had a consistent report with our area we'll get there. We'll learn this person's name. I have no doubt about spencer first hash brown and he was one of many here. Everybody's up in arms about dylan. Carlson one is yanni. Good to spend on you can drop guy like mile star. Where myers over three overweight him. Now i don't think we did. But i like the fact that he's leading off and he he should be taking away. He has a decent walk rate. But not lately but yeah. He's not doing so hot and he's not running at all. No nary attempted stolen base eighty four games. Huge disappointment that i expected i expected like twenty home runs. Twelve to fifteen steals. We may get the home runs. But i mean mile. Straw has no power but he could still twenty five basis season. So have you need basis. Sure but in a point sleek i. I would try to stick across. We'll myers doesn't look like we'll myers i. How did that last year. I don't because he's back to his old self disappointing. I stick with carlson. Dealing across has sixty seven th percentile sprint speed. And he's as you said no no stolen base attempts. I just don't get it and you know. Historically saint louis does not use the stolen base very much. They actually have fallen into that oakland. In the zero's kind of mold historically of late. Because you know ozzie. smith. Vince coleman beg to differ. But kyle hasn't heard historically in reasonably in the recent frame of memory for people in fantasy. Hear you say something. I wanna make sure that people understand what we're talking about is you're sure you're older than the twenty five years of age like i run. You know like yeah. Who's going to win the nba. Title i want it to be phoenix. I think phoenix i mean. The honest doesn't look like he's gonna play game one at least like if he doesn't play the first game. I don't think they can play from behind like milwaukee a lot but this is not lineup for chris. paul would would philadelphia have beaten milwaukee. If like doc doesn't play. Ben ben simmons in. That's a big if you're playing your starting point guard. He's bad but the my he was i'm playing. I need to know an expert and nba experts. Opinion the seventy sixers. They're currently constructed and coach beaten milwaukee series with the previous series with honest compromise. No this series. Milwaukee just beat atlanta okay which they might not have done trae young healthy. So you're saying if to eastern seventy six game seven against atlanta where they beat mocking eric. There's no way brandon would corbin burns freddie peralta. They would just so hot right now. Calls that geffen is tall. I think he could dunk. Those guys would have been him zach. Epoca benjamin's doesn't want to stunk my dad's like although this damian lillard form i'm like oh sure it's just easy with half the team and every first round pick for the next decade they can get dame lewis all right. What was the question. I got to wondering. Is there a player whose name symbolizes game better than mile straw. Mean like he's using astrada hit with. I don't know his name the drink. Yeah like if you gave me his name with no context. I would tell you exactly what he is. Bob walk. I mean there's a million pictures like who is that. Josh outmanned been a lot of pitcher but he wasn't a good outline. What i was looking for was when the as had blazed tom that he would be like their pinch-runner extraordinarily unperfect and by the way. How can't sky bolt be the most. The fastest guy on oakland is. It's the greatest thing plays skype. There wasn't who's the blaze. Tom guy times a minor. Leager he actually. I think he's on the pirates. Well you can't tell the difference but yes. The oakland kids sky bolt like is very fast. So that's well said. That was the one i was confusing them with mile straws second. Dave loves getting deals done during the all star right ball. Things are a little slower. Who are some bad. You'd look to invest in now. That could be better the rest of the way. That's a good point yes in. It's a good time for reflection next week. When there's no baseball games. That matter and i looked at my team to say can i contain. What do i need to contain. Not not that. I won't do it today. But i don't feel like it but next week when you know we're watching the homerun. Derby is a great time to actually do that. Reflect on your teams and what you really need So i would say but some hitters like there's a lot of hitters right now okay and maybe you've noticed this way with really low slugging percentages based on their history. Yeah they shouldn't. I'm not just talking like one soto who is destroying i. I had a chance to tease and soda in a league couple of years ago and i took soto and now i realize i did it wrong but when you look at some of these slugging percentages and you say how is this like christian yelich. You notice what he's slugging..

"Yeah i'm watching him lot of sliders solas he's combating he's finally getting a slaughter over and is doing. Well you know. Obviously kendall agreement is the guy you really have to rostrum seattle's bullpen. But i do think. Paul sewell does ahead of drew stuck and writer for some saves there any other situations that we have to mention. Where do you stand on minnesota's today. They never win. I think it's i think it's a combination between hans robots and taylor rogers and i think it was a month ago and i think either or both could be traded. Because they're clearly out of it now. Now it's it i think it's almost mandatory. They trade row bliss which is why howard seeing forced into save chances when he's he's the clearly inferior pitcher of the to clear. Yeah but rogers pitched in that game yesterday. Said him up. yeah he was. I didn't he was very good. I wanna see rogers going to san francisco with his twin brother. I think that'd be fun right. Twin brother who throws side arm underhand taylor. The left from minnesota does not do that. But i'd like to see that happen but again nobody's going to make a trade until the absolute deadline. Which is what two weeks from. Friday july thirtieth so it is three weeks from friday. I think three thirty the deadline. It's a saturday. It's three weeks from saturday. No but they moved into friday wherever they didn't want to do it over. Nobody wanted to work. Thank you for doing that. You just save me. Have an update forecasters at six. Pm on a saturday. Well i don't feel like doing it on six. Pm on a friday. Either better than the amount of saturday definitely better than that. Okay moving along. Now let's take a look at the schedule for the next couple of days. Really only a couple of days here because we'll have a show on thursday. Let's see today. Tuesday oh you. Espn's got a double header. It's got milwaukee at milwaukee on fire and opening up a big division lead here and that see the cubs are going to sell because milwaukee has such a big lead but the phillies can't sell because the methadone anyway jake. Degrom is on the mound today against anderson. Every degrom outing is worth watching Even against milwaukee. And you know i just i just wanna seem healthy. And i'm also interested to see you starts also because philadelphia zach. Wheelers season won't be to graham. Why can't these pitching sunday. Well he may pitch sunday. The mets have options to fill enough of their games for the week too. Not start degrom on sunday. But but you're right. If they scratch him he could start the all star game. We'll see jared goff again. And they got him to resign in one deal. Yankees are in seattle. Jameson tie on kind of unimpressed with against sheffield. Is there anything. They were tyrone. I don't know if there is. I've not been impressively. no i. There could be. But i'm not seeing it. There's nothing actionable today. Espn plus as reds at royals lewis. Cass theo who had a great june great june and was a lucky couple of those games like his last most recent outing he he cruised into like the fifth inning. I've got him on multiple teams and then he gave up a couple runs in the six. When he wasn't even in the game the reliever gave them up least gets to. You is going to be really good for the second half of the season and he's already been good for the last six weeks. You should get them so for streaming purposes. You know a streamer stephen math at baltimore. I don't want to activate them in a league. I can do that in. Should i win no small. No it's in baltimore and they do have some guys who can cause headaches matchups. Why i don't like it. Nope they have all star cedric mullins. They do leftovers. Left you there so but it's actually been pretty good of late. He's facing jon. Snow and colorado on the road is awful. The arizona anywhere is awful. Colorado historically poor at course that arizona. I know i'm just saying that. Even a course. They are on track for their worst offensive season as a franchise in their own games. So think about what that means on the road. It means badness Sorry using merrill. Kelly today why not. Yeah and use them over. Stephen matt's to wednesday. Espn has Dodgers marlins with no pitchers so i think the hitters are gonna hit off a t. On wednesday and they probably going. Julio reas the marlins have the problem because they demoted could be jordan. holloway jordan. Holloway was the one they demoted. They'll they'll call up a guy like that just to pitch that game. Whatever the case is watched dodgers marlins. Because it's good baseball. Somebody will start those games so the hitters don't have to hit off a t and the dot product. Starting i would think so. I mean you don't think about this because you know their ace. Pitcher is pitching this week but somebody has to pitch dodgers and is not the price who can't go deepen the weird situation with david price season. I'm disappointed because yes. I believed that david price would be a decent starting pitcher. A top forty starter. This year he would go six innings per game. He'd be fine that they're not even trying to make him a starting pitcher. He's not stretched out for anything. It's very strange. Yeah was the injury really. He's giving utility in the nfl. Only leagues for the most part. And that's about it. What else do we have. Oh patrick corbin and chris paddock interesting match there again. Patrick corbin you know you never know from the outing doubting what he's gonna do. I think if it got him in a weekly. It's it's kind of frustrating. Because i've got him in a weekly and i don't know what to do with i just leave of now. You lost your second. Start in the weeklies are. He's not starting sunday. No no he was supposed to start today and they pushed him back to give them arrest so he can't make two starts this week now and it's a san diego game. Yes disappointing knob. Sonny gray on a pitch limit. Apparently even though he threw eighty six last week off the injured list. He's i can't city you're gonna wanna use in. They're even on a pitch limit. I mean if eighty six is the limit or ninety. That's still pretty good and then thursday and we'll discuss thursday on thursday. Don't forget the double header. Because of the cleveland tampa bay games were there avoiding the hurricane. So they've got a double header on wednesday at his correct. So make sure you look. I mean tuesday today games wednesday. Lots of games thursday. Lots of bay game. So if you're in a daily and you're in you're in july and you're still paying attention you should know when there's going.

"We got lots of them since our last show. And and some odd wants some catchers zach collins not the portland forward but the white sox catcher and kyle farmer. I is there anything there. I mean i as count holiday because definitely matters yes. Monte groundouts probably going on the injured list today and collins will be the starting catcher for the white sox but is it. Is there a pathway to relevance in a ten team league like would you add him in a one catcher the you know and to catcher league. I think you can make the case right and like he takes. Walks doesn't he. He does he whips a lot. There's a ton of swing and miss his game. That's the big problem. You're going for the all or nothing. Potential power outcome and if you look at his numbers the power hasn't been to the level. I was expecting during his prospect status with you to catcher league type. I also be a little worried. The white sox have to seek another catcher. They have lost so many key. Contributors to that lineup. They've got to do something. And if the backstop is where they can add a player a meaningful name. That's going to work against him. Yeah i mean. We'll see i don't want to over eight collins by the other catcher right now. They just called up somebody. Today i saw. That's not mercedes. It would sevi- zavala. Who was at defense. i guy. yeah how about your mercedes. The fall fall from grace for him. I mean a great april and then nothing since then. They demoted him. it's not really a catcher. So that's why they could. You know leave active but anyway and nothing to say about call form on friday. Jackie bradley jr. yada or molina shohei ohtani amazing. Jake fraley stole two bases and very busy friday there. I'm we've talked about otani jake. Fraley is interesting to me. And i think you wrote about him and there's something. There is not a typical prospect. I thought he was a little bit older. I think he was gonna hit for much average but he's doing okay now see. I was going to continue to play. Him is twenty six years old so not a typical prospect seven. Home runs seven stolen bases and he's playing a lot and that's kind of important. Yeah good pitch selection making more contact the big jump for him that he's much more disciplined the season. That's really helping him. Not a star but also a guy is not going to hurt you in most fantasy categories unfortunate. Since i wrote about him. He hasn't been quite as great. So it's probably the fifteen mix where you're going to maximize the always on the gayle. These saturday and sunday. Eli white texas trevor story. Who's a great story. I really should be in the all star game. It's kind of a shame. He's not games denver. I don't you know baseball. Continues to do smart things harrison baiter on sunday and. I don't know if anybody had a combo. Meal on monday into that frame array is definitely did anyone else. Kyle have not okay all right. So harrison badir interests me a little bit tristan. Because he's a he's a homer he's a guy who was great speed. He can still basis a little pop against lefties but a low batting average type guy. So i would ask you this. Would you rather add jake fraley or harrison beta right now. Good question i'm to i would say fraley. I trust the skills baiters. The problem with ater is that he has swing and missing his game. And it's messy. When he is off he can really tank your batting average. Frailties probably not going to do that. I see a little more safety there. All right safety enclosures will find out next person's gonna sing that one to.

"No pressure you've got it man. Well i think now like the bars raised all podcast producers. Have to play guitar. And you need like you need like twenty five tattoos to lightly beard tattoos or play the guitar. I'm not in good shape for any of those all right. Well we have to deal with this. And i don't really want to. But dodgers pitcher is not pitching this week and he missed last week and you know. I don't have anything to say about. What trevor bauer did or did not do from fantasy baseball aspect tristan here. That's all that matters for this show bus. You can deal with the other stuff. What do you do with our in a fantasy league right now. We don't know how much time he's going to miss. It might only be one start this week. He might come back right after the all star break and he might be fine and we rank them among the top. Five starting pitchers in all fantasy. He's really only good on the field. But do you try to trade him right now. You're always in dropping him right. You probably can't trade him for value at this point because there was concern that he's going to get suspended miss more time and then again he might not be and in a week he might be in the rotation. So what does the fantasy implication to what's going on with him. A lot of these things are very unknown and uncertain because we haven't had a a history of however will deals with these things so i have no clue what the length of absence is going to be I do believe because he's got an out designation. You could put him on the injured list. I don't have a share in an espn link. So i can't tested myself. But i think the player with the o. designation can and if that's the case you just put on the sidelines and see what you know how this plays out. I don't think you can trade them. I don't think you should try to trade him. I just don't think that's a viable option for you and you know we'll we'll see how this plays out. It's a it's a disturbing troubling situation. I mean when he's on the mount. He's talented pitcher moving on now. Let's do the combo meals. Oh there was one other thing. I wanted to get to six. Oh sanchez of the marlins done for the season with shoulder surgery. Which have like harbinger a little bit like a month ago. When i was writing about this situation. I don't even know he's going to have surgery but you can safely drop him. But i wanted to ask your overall picture here. A shoulder as four more concerning than an elbow where the now. But we know how long you're out with a shoulder. Sometimes these guys are gonna come back. They don't throw his hard in a dynasty format. Here tennessee rankings. If six oh. Sanchez was before this week. Among your top. Ten young prospect dynasty starting pitchers. Is he still there. No he would probably at this point if it was a top ten classification. And that's taking a subset group of that age. He's probably now atop twenty type and with the possibility this adversely impacts the remainder of his career. As you said it's a shoulder tear. I worry that that cuts a little bit into next season as well. Especially if it's a surgery situation. Let's say top twenty just ballpark today. And and i will have Dynasty rankings for the readers in the coming week plus accent okay. I wasn't aware that i will look forward to seeing that. Because i wanna see where you rank him because you know we all loved him back in march but with a shoulder injury attaran that shoulder. I mean you don't know like the degree like corey. Kluber shoulder is shot. I mean he's thirty five or something. That's different when six sanchez kid. Who by the way was in the jt. Real trade from philadelphia and it doesn't look as now you know it was basically farro and six though for real moot though anyway. It's it's a shame because we wanted to see him pitch and help. Not only the marlins but us. He's not going to do that anymore. For the rest of the season now. It's time for you to sing about the combo meals today. Many small business owners are busier than ever because they are focused on managing and growing their business. They can't always spend the time they wish they could on recruiting and that's why linked in jobs has made it easier to find and hire the best candidates for free. Look i sure.

"Might be. Yeah i would hope in the situation that you don't have a glut of injured less players. I do a couple of leagues. So i understand it. If you're in that situation. I think it's okay to let him go. I would prefer to try to keep them around. If i could zach gallon of arizona's just sat down on the field after throwing a pitch. They say it's a mild hamstring strain but arizona's a mess and they don't win very much and anzac. That gown is very good but this looks like a pitcher who's not going to have a great final second half of the season to me like maybe it's because injury maybe it's because of performance or not getting wins but like i don't see how we could rank that gown as a top twenty five starting pitcher and fantasy for the final three months based on his situation. Yes and a lot of that has to do with this. Being the third injured list stint. I can't recall what the first one was coming out of. Spring training began the year on the injured that was elbow and we thought it was elbowing the first time right. I mean i thought that was the second indra. I thought that was the main one. Well i it was. One of them is what i'm saying. Yeah there was definitely one where we were worried. he could be headed for. Tommy john i do recall that i think that was the may one. I don't remember the opening day could have been the same but the fact that these are two different injuries and he's at a difficult time building his himself back up to pitching at the level he did in the previous two years. That's what bugs me. I i'm with you. I don't think you can make the case for top twenty five. Because i don't think he gets to that volume and there will be the risk of re injury. He had a hairline fracture and his forearm in late march and then the elbow is in early. May so you add all these things up and it gets to be a little bit concerning and this is very promising. Young starting pitcher. And that's why we get concerned any other injuries that i i don't want to miss anything here. I'm looking at the most added droplets because that generally tells us who is injured because people are just you know leaving a positive injury note. I mean since. We're doing injuries as i'm pleased about the friend. Male raiders at friend mill race return from the ingest and the homered and his first. Maybe not as first game back but it was one of the early game. I think it was the second. I'm trying to recall doubt the power. You know actually was activated friday. I don't think he played. It was weird. He got activated in play. I think it was weird. Heather transaction fell. What right he. Yesterday you had a home run a double and five. Rbi and he stole a base so he his name will be mentioned a little bit later when after tristan sings I didn't get to listen to thursday. Show how much singing did you do.

"What's your what's your next lesson. All right my next lesson in in a lot of people are going to want to hear this man. But this is just how i feel. Zion williamson has demonstrated that he's a lot closer to luca than he is the rest of the young rising star up and coming guys on meaning he is going to be an mvp shoulder the burden type of player. You just put me on the court. Our offense is going to generate quality. Looks no matter what type of player if physically. I think he's gonna right now obviously. He's nobody's bill russell. That shirt but i think physically gets his wind. He's going to become more than capable as a defender and again. I'm talking about guys like traits l. John morand jason tatum. I'm talking about all right like these guys are great. Nba players zionist. Showed you especially in the past few weeks where standards has been like. Why am i gonna make this guy center. When he's just shack on the perimeter right like why don't you just put the ball in this man's hand and allow him to flashes actual play making ability flashes decision making skills like and still be physically just overpower right. And i think zaylon is a lot closer to the local level. Then he is the rest of the young guys whether d his own teammate. And like i said tatum trade ceo. John morand saw any of those younger cats bam of bio these rising stars. Zion is just season another class to me. It's good that you did this. After the sixers thing because i think there is a burgeoning. Bi zaylon like discussion about whether those guys fit. But i think in much the same way. Yeah they fit you just have to surround them with the right guy is like that was the sixers conversation. i think that there's some decent pieces around those dudes. I've been really impressed with lonzo this season. I'm curious what you think that the pelicans needs to start doing personnel wise. And whether it's something that's like a change for right now or a change. That's going to work. Maybe two seasons down the line. I mean the obvious answer is spacing is shooting I don't like to me. I don't understand why you go out of your way to get stephen adams in there. When people like mouse on the on the board to this summer i just i love grits. I would love to have a conversation with him in understanding thinking of putting this guy who only lives in the paint next to williamson. We're that's where he's optimally used is attacking matt area of the court. I'll never understand. I think they just got to put shooting around them. Do i mean is that just a culture. A locker room thing like you get adams in and adams is just like every night we we go. We do battle. And i'm going to show you how like. Maybe that's an easy read. I have no idea. But it's like with jay adams and those guys like that really sure what they're doing for you. I don't know. I struggled to understand the moves myself. And you know the idea that you will play a front court of atoms. Vi zion is just anathema to nba basketball. As it's played right now you know. I don't know if they thought maybe we had the goes to defense. Or i'm not sure what the thinking was. But i think that's a sub optimal usage of your resources when it comes to surrounding. You're too young guys who were supposed to be. You know the most important people in the franchise right on. Maybe a short term thing. Maybe it's like whatever developing zionist certain type of way and went zion. Learns how to play in constricted court. He's gonna be unstoppable when he finally gets more space court. Who knows but yeah. I would like to see them up the mazda lineups zion more because as you seen this guy gets the ball going downhill. It's your toast you told. I'm getting to my left hand. Every time i'm once i get my shoulder even half an inch pashtu. You're you're you're done. You can't do anything with me and if you try to help i'm more than willing passer. I guys just remarkable for his young age and he didn't even have a rookie season. You know he got hurt. Then the season got killed. Then he restriction. Yeah yeah it's like aba rookie season and look what he's already doing. This guy is scott limited. His kid My next lesson is that it turns out. Tanking is an art. I've been fascinated by some of the worst teams in the league this year. I think some some of this beyond anyone's control like the way minnesota has slid off cliff is like almost like an early cure song in like how depressing it is but like i do remember like when tanking obviously got popularized with the sixers it was agonizing like i can't i can't say like i watched a lot of those early bad thirteen fifteen wins sixers teams but there was definitely a feeling like it may or may not work but there is a plan like there is a plan and with the worst teams in the league. This year's whether it's a minnesota or increasingly cleveland or even sadly a sacramento who sort of have the roster that you tank four already and are in fact still bad. I just feel like there is a lack of long term thinking which is understandable job. Security is what it is and the nba and sometimes owners get a little bit impatient. Like seeing the lanta where they're obviously they. Have they have playoff dreams with with signing a bunch of veterans and. Now they're going to have nate mcmillan and coaches his team into probably a play in game if if he can but i. I do think that we've sort of seen how hard it is to. Actually pull off a tank and in places like cleveland in places like minnesota and places like sack and in places like atlanta. The mixed results can actually have like long term detrimental effects. If you don't pull it off if you don't lose with intent and then try to build the right way if you kind of have these false starts if you've gotta have you know going all in for de ngelo russell now being kind of up against it and having a group of young players who who are now on their second coach but like second front office administration with an ownership. That's uncertain in minnesota. It's just a really interesting situation. I wonder whether or not i wonder whether we'll ever see a full-scale tear down like we did in philly again because i don't know if people have the stomach for it. Yeah and i think the hardest part about the tank that you know the heiki files never one acknowledge and i think you know philly got kinda lucky in that. It was joel embiid. Who's kind of his. Makeup is a lot different than a lot of cats and it. And it wasn't andrew wiggins and karl anthony towns in the sense that you're the you're the person who tanked for so we're constantly padding on your as it telling you how great you are just. Because he said dad one time and the that that breeds. It's it's not conducive to when you want to turn the corner. Which is what. We're seeing in. Minnesota and i'm glad you said the word. It's an art form because it seemed that you didn't mention that that made me think of was detroit. They went out and they spent all this money on jerry grant to allow him to be you know kobe seeing and they spent all this money plumbly and all of us you know sort of pseudo sharp nba on lookers. Like what in the hell are the pistons doing. Can they were like you. Know what we are tanking but with bring equality players to and you know killian hayes. He's not going to be our savior when he comes in from day. One this is going to be guys on the roster who are clearly obviously better than and we're still not gonna win but he's still there's still going to be the sort of competitive idea to our makeup in our team. What we're doing here. Every day is not in service of losing. We're trying to win where we're gonna lose in the process right as so i. I think there is an art to how you sort of finesse and with numerous i like i think even in memphis who's like they never tanked. They might have had a season where they were like all right..

"Rudy. Gobert has won the award twice before. Ben simmons has called himself the best defensive player in the league. Lebron james barron defensive wind chairs. Which is you really closely. You got me. I think rudy gobert. I think the utah jazz gone through the toughest part of their schedule. Having dominated the league dominated the league. And we're not gonna throw it excuses or anything they have like rebounding like you. Go down the stats. And they are top. Two or three offense and defense and three point. John rushing. So i think the anchor defensive rudy gobert. He's been that guy. I think you know the i team i think you ben. Simmons is close. I think joel embiid get some votes. But this thing. Judge the deepest wish years like the defensive player of the year. I got you gotta pass the eye test with me. You know what. I'm saying like ben simmons. I haven't watched him enough to say he's a great defender. But like when. I see the tests. I'm not seeing those guys. He's a defender. But i like the defenders air. Were you see patients. Pick it up for court. You know like like up and you like like i'm he died. Tony island we see guys like that. Just all know breathing room. I don't see that from the perimeter guys these days and so when i say deep player two year from a perimeter guy i like to see those type of intangibles the steals the not given any guy in the room so for me. It's to go bear because he calls up the lane and it's tough to score over him four perimeter guy. I just don't see that today. Like pat beverley. He's he's not giving you know space. I'll say this and we'll move on and the stats my say. Otherwise past is very very close because when we talk about position was basketball he gets into players one through five. Because he's six foot in this say let's go to rookie of the year and again. This is always talking about rookie of the year. We think..

"That four game stretch. They were the number one team. Now they start. Mvp typically step up in those moments right and so you know they struggled as soon as it got shooter back they go and blow out the warriors they go. Blow out portland. So i still think it's lebron last night. Look they lost to the phoenix suns. But i'm going to say it is is a very very very close race. It is closed is very lebron. He's the best robison. Lebron is the best player in the game. He's the best player in the game right there. And if we're gonna say that even though you lose you lose schroeder you find a way to keep your teams afloat. Yeah he's a little older. He hasn't done that. you know. i think there's more like six and four seven five since eighty. It's been out and so he took a step back the last couple of weeks he comes back. They start winning. He'll be back there. But joel embiid. Is there for me and even hard to put harding in there. I mean okay. The kyrie's been you don't know when he's gonna show up. You know what type of movies going to be in that way very well. Nothing that gives us game but you just know you don't know what he's going to be in and out the lineup. They've been seven games together in harden is reliable. You know what other ability he's available and the things that the says you have to put them in there to things. That james has done since a moment he showed up with the nets have been historic was like i. It's been over the top. He's already second all time in. Triple doubles I think it's really really close. It's very little change weekend and week out guys know next week it can be lebron heart and it'll be right now be well. Let's move onto defensive player of the year.

"Themselves as you get down the stretch. This is why say to crown a true champion. You take listen. Boston is in the fourth seat in the eastern conference. You know seat will be if they were went sixteen. They'll be out the playoff. They'll be out the playoffs in the western conference right now. Going back start. That wants to be the best in the world. You gotta put the best six paul chatting. Just what happens when it rains. La everyone starts like crazy stuff teams in the east. The mvp an offensive player mvp best player in the did not kidding. I'll just say it again because people don't know this is not like a commissioner's decision. Owners would have to vote. I believe in a two third or a three quarter majority which means you'd have to have a chunk of eastern conference owners basically voting themselves out of the playoffs and it's not just in terms of their fans wouldn't have as much fun or their players wouldn't get the experience. There is playoff money on the line. And so that tells you travel would never change play each other four times in the same. Thank you coming up. We're play panic or patients here on the job around to find out if it's time to sell in a panic alarm on some of the more achieving teams this season trae deadlines covenant soon.

"On the court. You can't be anything but impressive paul. With what the team is doing well. Absolutely i mean sat off the clintons. Should have been. Is it a coach for the cars. Even in that that he hasn't been built some good players. But you know they don't have that just outright superstar that you're saying like look this guy's a generational player donovan. Mitchell has been great rudy gobert. He's been great but then the rest of these guys. They're just glorify role players. Mike conley probably the best non all star ever in the history of the rate at this point. Please get a seat at the all-star bench. Something i mean. Can you be a captain and just let them vote like allies. I agree there. I think the one thing that people are not using against utah and not that it's their fault is that they haven't had any injuries they haven't dealt with any real kovic stuff so when you start to look not not at all but not nearly as much as some of the other teams like you look at portland of injuries. You know. Dealing with different stuff and daimler. That's part of the reason why he's in the mvp conversations because he's kept them relevant in the top five for the most part over the course of the season. But i think utah's been playing get respect and i'll tell you why the uniforms before that you know a little more sexy to the just the i don't know the track forms right now. But isn't one of them. A throwback to the stockton malone younis rate absolutely no issue your color patterns. Just want to say mrs. Your mentions to paul pierce. Here's twitter and stuff the piss you guys off me out of that and and look i will say this about utah to sure. They didn't deal with that kind of stuff in the first half of the season. But we don't the not saying that they will deal with it in the second half of the season. Hopefully things are only getting better in terms of covid in terms of her community and people getting vaccinated and all of that as we go through the next few months and by the way they have already played the toughest part of their schedule. Thing you have to look at. What's our bodies because.

"Offensively you saw that game we saw some offense of output from this team so expect a lot of pace expect a lot offense this is a good old a big twelve shootout here on Saturday and would you get involved here team totals I you know I'm not exactly sure how Kansas is gonNA react to that loss last week again just so close to beating Texas little worried about perhaps letdown situation for that team so I don't really have an inkling which way to play from aside perspective it's this game but I do I will say this you know the first half over the total wh is certainly LE Look good I liked that my friend so it is tempting to to fade Nebraska the rest of the way so I'm looking at IU plus one minus one depending on your shot that you have talked me off it tell me I'm crazy to lay points within the N. on the road well I mean this is I guess you could say it's not a bad spot for Nebraska embarrassed last game against Minnesota it was just a complete no show for them and you get a couple of weeks to prepare I mean this is kind of has to be their game but you know I will say this Doug I'm not sure if what Nebraska's a game is at this point and I'm not sure I I think there is sign that this team has probably pointed towards next year and they will start playing a lot of these young players I don't know what the quarterback dynamic quarterback here so I'm not Eddie I played Nebraska in the in that game against northwestern and that was about the last of the Elena Brassica for the season I was pretty much done with them at that point and I actually tweeted as much I said that's it I'm done with the rest of the year and the next week I took Minnesota uh-huh I'm done so I think you're right I think it's sort of rally the troops game for the huskies but I will say this I haven't seen them play four full quarters yeah of consistently they are two and a half quarter team and we saw that against north western North West stinks while the way so I just your point is I don't even know what their best game is in I you is like decent and has a powerful offense by we're not talking tain Oklahoma here but like they can score so even if Nebraska orchestrates a few drives I still think hoosiers have too much offense for him I'm a big fan of Big Fan of this Indiana Program Allen has done a tremendous job turned over the defensive coordinator this year so he could kind of be more of a hit coach and you know you look at the resume they got beat by Ohio State and Michigan State which is certainly uncommon for Indiana but yeah this team is definitely for real this is one of the better teams they've had they've recruited Better as well so yeah very good hoosiers team yeah and the teams you mentioned are their only two losses and outside of those games they're hanging at least thirty four and all these games so I'm I'm looking at a team total over for Nebraska not the Nebraska's defense has been completely pushes it's more their offense but I think they can get torched here by you all right so that's where I'm leaning there and I look at Iowa too I mean the northwestern's adman points with the Hawkeyes but they have some key guys out and they're kind of a pedestrian offense all things considered yeah I think I think a guy who was offense can definitely be better than they've showed I mean they've played some really good defensive teams they've got a little bit healthier on that offensive line I mean you know they haven't NFL caliber quarterback you have to first round draft picks at the tackle position for that team That offense should be you know it should be better than show with is it do they get writings northwestern that's the question right I mean it's it's a trick because north western I mean I there's certainly not another team in college football that is less offense and more defense than northwestern wildcats it is it is a ugly to watch their football games they had like even against Ohio state there was a drive or the penalty a holding call brought the offense back across midfield they they can't get some points there's not like it's not rutgers it's not definitely not ruckers brokers may be better off than simply just joke records get so these are all the games I've I've sort of not a lot not a lot for where do you stand on this this this Arkansas game with Alabama it's extremely intriguing I'm so curious to see how Nick Sabin approaches it just given that he might need us Mac Jones against Lsu and he's got a bye week the following week in Arkansas not very good so I'm very curious to I what I'm being told people kind of know things is that it's not gonna be simplified basic offense like power okay left and right I think he's going to try to develop some some synergy he being saving trying to get some synergy developed with with quarterback Jones and the receivers maybe not the slants we're used this thing to a carve-up teams with but that we will see some some some some passing yeah I mean as we know dog you could get your eligibility and you could probably throw some touchdown passes with this with the talent for Alabama has on offense you're you know and that was my initial look I thought I was gonNA maybe play the it came under the total because you could you know you could see save and playing very conservative which he has in some games you go back to that you know the first game against Duke and Simpson uh earlier games this year where they didn't you know maybe have that and they still scoring a ton of points but boy this total for for Alabama's standards you know the the oddsmakers adjusted it really well fifty five and a half fifty six for this total and Arkansas to me he has been a little bit more of an over team if you will they've kinda played musical chairs at the quarterback position but defensively you know we saw last week were they were you know beat up really bad by Auburn they've tried to play with a little bit more pay so I just did not have anywhere to go in that game like I said the value or the thought or the matchup wasn't quite there with maybe trying to play Alabama under the total now I know that's wanted to go and I was actually on the second half last week because I think that was the game at Sabin wanted to just bleak clock and get out of there but I think this is a different situation I think he's going to be preparing quarterback for for potentially having a face Lsu and that's the rub and that's the rub here you know I think maybe it's it's a game that perhaps that's up for a second half on her if if Alabama has that big you know thirty one to three lead at half-time Maybe you look to play the second half under interesting okay my man I think that's all we got for college kind of a light light discussion here doesn't sound like we have a bunch of place here I got I feel good about the what the three or four I got three total models in in the side so feeling good about my college football better than last time I did the podcast good well here's the here's one game I actually did I was trying at least I wanted to talk now Callan Utah over under thirty seven and a half very low and I don't want to be skewed too much by last week's Utah game because I was in the porn rain so it's very sloppy conditions this feels really low but I still WanNa take the under just because cows that inept offensively yeah I will I will I will definitely not argue with any type of that I'm hoping callen northwestern playing a bowl game so we get a total of about twenty seven and a half you're right I mean with cals showing offensively last week when you get Oregon State at home we know Oregon State has been atrocious from a defensive stance point they play with some pace. I don't know where cal is going to go with the quarterback position monster has been a disaster and it hasn't been easy for them anyway with what they do offensively so matched up against Utah Defense it is I don't know what the team total is but it can't be very high for CAL and deservedly so because with the injury at the quarterback position yeah it is just almost impossible for this calcium scoring now could at like nine that's probably going to be nine and thirty eight and twenty nine like are the team to team totals twenty eight right that is incredibly low for a college football game but as we've seen CAL has had these low totals and it hasn't mattered because they are so bad really depends you know I'm not sure what the status is here for huntly with the Utah quarterback here and it you know it Kinda comes down to we just talked about with Alabama does Utah WanNa play conservative here and have kind of a los heavily have a low scoring second half but yet cal still good with what they WANNA do defensively this not a game I'm going to be involved with and you know crazy things can happen when you have such a low total like this but cows certainly not that dynamic team were expected to have all right good stuff so here's what's going to happen on the podcast for all those listeners we're gonNA take a break and John Murray is GonNa join us to have some perspective from behind the counter with college football and then ers going to return for some NBA talk this place look haunted I don't think so what about those.
