Please get the took that Gummer so working on ROY slammer technique, ROY. I didn't have any punks. Well, I had pogs. I didn't look the muchly bought one at the NFL experience ninety four when we were boils down here. But as lying with the Florida Marlins had Paul giveaway. The Marlins Padres or my collection. We've got to bring pogs back. I'm surprised haven't come back yet. Yeah.

I I I used to cook shoes pretty regularly. I don't collect anything. I'm really disappointed that when we went to your place for for brunch. We didn't see your shoe collection as we were promised have Al. Have Allison because I've had like six or any? What are those? She told me about tic TAC gum. I never heard of it before you're not getting that back house and. That's like a death grip on that thing down one one piece of tic TAC Gummer's and going to be sufficient it's like a really tiny piece of gum. Share with? Really want me chewing gum on the air. Thank you for the red bull. But I've already had to today. No problem. I figured I would help you. Let pressure. So you don't you got a monster monster man, I am the white monsour at the post you though anymore. It's so bad for you. I'm not supposed to have them. But I can't stop. You know, I'm so sick of people telling me rebels bad for me the same people that have a Cup of coffee in their hand all day, the same people that just go pound drink, so right and live. I've got a friend who does not believe in in water. He believes it's a myth that water is one of those Odell Beckham doesn't like water. He doesn't taste of water. That's why he's always cramping. Yeah. No, this friend just replaces it all with like diet coke or diet, Dr Pepper, and friend. Mike francesa have a problem. Perfectly healthy. I think you collect shoes because you have like a you have a storage unit full issues full like I have an overflow because I don't exactly have giant claws. I collect shoes to Billy. What do you collect while not currently, but I used to collect beanie babies? I was thing. No. Yeah. You have a bunch of beanie babies, you cut the tie logo on it real hell Yan you had to get the little plastic protector to put around the heart. So that it wouldn't get bent because if it wasn't mint condition. It was gonna be worth anything and you were doing wearing those over you're trying to sell those. Are you still have them somewhere? Oh, I'm sure I could find it looked. So what's being worth something if you weren't going to sell them? Well, they're worthless. Now. But at the time that was an investment strategy. Now, let's investment the ten year old thinking this, you know. But there was there was a fad for being where they were selling for like crazy amount of money. And then I guess we're holding off. No, I guess is certain point people realize like what do I need to spend like five hundred dollars stuff dog for is a you ever play pogs, no dune. I would only play pogs if we were playing for keeps. That's the way that you do it. I didn't like playing for keeps. Now, you gotta play for keeps. Now, I that's how it was a miracle that it kept. My Pat rep pod as long as they kept it for damn near a year ahead of traumatizing baseball card experience. I didn't like to play for keeps. What was your traumatizing baseball experience? So I had my baseball cards, and like baseball or folder that you, you know, put them in and sleeves or whatever. And had these these neighbors behind me little jerks. I don't remember their names. Right. Put them on blocks right now. I'm assuming by you know, what they did to me. They're probably in prison. So what they did was. They said, hey, let's trade baseball cards show us your cards, then whatever. And basically took my whole like binder of cards took out Mike good cards, and then gave me like crappy cards in return. I lost like man VP cars, but they were like older than me a couple years older than jerks that you tell them punk. Yeah. No. But they got some sure they're in prison. And that's why they were doing that at it yet a young age. I'm sure they've they've laid and guys in prison that are keep them entertained. I mean, I just I have my freedom. So, but that's why you didn't play for keeps with pugs. Yeah. Because I was traumatized. I said, you know, what? No, I'm not going to give up my stuff anymore. All right. So going on here. So the reason why we're on this topic. As you understand because we were sitting there for the very beginning. Chris Chris anything Christmas to abstain from this one. Okay. Just this time out did Alison skate on this Alison did skate on telling shameful. You have a collection. You said that you collect something embarrassing. All right. So we're just gonna guess, and it'd probably be worse. What did you collect as a child? Scalps? It can't be worse than beanie babies scalps Bagga hair, seven eight six four five six eight three seven when something you collected jerked from all the places, you've visited magnets pins. Oh, wow. Shaving me on the pins. You know, no one can hear what you're saying. What you should see the jacket. Now, I've got like thirty more pins on things to do guy gave me a bunch of nNcholas cage pin? So, wow, it's so much cooler. It sounds like it's so much cooler grey different Cologne on it or do you use a same Cologne? Roy. How do I smell today? Alison because I did three spray today. And I and I did it. Yeah. And I didn't do it. Over the shirt this time under the shirt trying to mask it. I have a DVD collection. Well, I had I had an entire wall in my office. That was sort of Florida ceiling DVD's, very embarrassing. How how is that set up at the time though, you were pretty cool. Oh at the time wondering is over you could watch any movies any movie like shells? Yeah. Oh bells. And so I had a clear in this out because it's ridiculous. Why why would any of these you mentioned something that I'm kicking myself yesterday? I asked you what I should do. And he said, I should buy a folder and just slide the actual DVD's in them. I didn't think of that. What I did was I got twelve garbage bags. Fill them to the top with these DVD's. And well, yeah. And yesterday, I just threw two straight up in the garbage side. I didn't open to see what was in there when I was clearing out my DVD rack, there's so many. I had no idea. I owned I own lucky number sloven had no idea. Elizabeth the golden age. Closer matchpoint jumper. These are all movies that I was learning that I owned. Waiting had no idea. I forgot all about waiting sewing. Ryan Reynolds, the DVD. So am I doing the right thing? I I was like why should I take these goodwill? These are absolutely useless. Should I take them to a library? What should I do with my DVD collection other than what I started doing which is just taken a trash bag and just putting it in the trash just kind of makes you feel old? I just remember a friend who was when DVD's or popular and we were just talking about technology moving forward, and he just said what could possibly be better than DVD's. And here we are. You know, I have I have a cousin. I have a cousin in law that he has a Netflix subscription. He doesn't stream. He still gets mailed DVD's from FOX. I'm gonna put him on Blass, John John L you doing John man, he watches DVD's. Now, you have to keep the little slots. You have back. If you don't then you're in trouble. Like you have to find a way to get it back. Yeah. You have to. I was like I was in his kitchen the other day. And there was like a DVD sleeve of Jack Reacher not Jack Reacher to Izzy Jack Reacher one. Do you want to know who my my prize basketball card collection piece was of course, it was a combination. But the one that was most excited about Larry Johnson Johnson rookie card. I thought it was going to be worth at least fifteen dollars by the time. I was in adult. Larry Johnson's career was weird because he guest starred on family matters. He was a really big deal. Like he was at one point a top five face in the league because he having the goal. Com. Brilliant, commercial hall of fame. I don't I don't think Larry L is check in and see LJ's in the hall of fame. I saw his name in connection with maybe a maybe he was a finalist or something he made it to the NBA finals with the Knicks. Right. But his peak was when he was beside Alonzo Mourning didn't they have a big first round upset together. Austin? They beat Boston in Charlotte. His peak was really damn good. But that's a no one whole thing. That's right. He's should be in that conversation with Chris Webber, and we got in such a bad place. Oh, how could explain that to me? Explain how. But what about the international career made it hall of fame worthy because he had one of note because what in an international career like what do you consider successful like multiple goals, or if you're a you're Argentina, right, then shocking gold, but outside of that what just because you had an international career doesn't mean that you deserve to be in the hall of fame for one. No, well, you you see very few like just standard internet European basketball stars and only played with their club teams in Europe. Make the hall of fame. You have to have contributions. On both sides of the ocean. I assume, but yeah, you can't discount vodka devotes early success. There'd be huge mistake. One time rookie of the year. Two time all star one time. All MBA does that get Larry Johnson and an one bad ass commercial? No was he ever a part of an international team. I world championship team. He wasn't a part of that world championship team with Alonzo Mourning in I think ninety eight nine even if you throw in his UNLV curry while the UNLV career, you absolutely. He should absolutely be in the hall of fame that you consider the UNLV career. That was a great team. He was obviously the star of that team. But that was a great don't forget the plastic, man. Yes. Stacey Augmon plastic man. So I should throw these away the DNC. No, you should not throw them away. What is what are you going to do with it? What does he going to do? Where should I did not throw them away? They're not trash don't owe them to goodwill goodwill. We'll take tons of place a bunch of homeless people with DVD's out there. Looking for looking for DVD's. Well, I don't think it could be recyclable or something. I don't think that you can say it's a homeless people because oh, I think the good-will stores so someone's gonna pay fifty cents for jumper. You might want to look this up. I think they're going to make the medals for the twenty twenty Olympics out of old DVD's. We're talking about someone who throughway change you throw a change high throwaway unease throws away books. Why is the dime smaller than a penny? That makes no sense where do we work? Why are you looking at me? I don't throw away the quarters. Well, how obnoxious is it that you throw away tech change? Is he's a dime smaller than a penny. Imagine if you kept your change how much more Cologne you could buy. Yeah. That's a good point alone. Yes. Not all the time. But I just all how many spurts spritz it usually require the morning. I don't usually wear Cologne anywhere that I need to go in the morning, right. But it's probably too. And usually because the first one I missed when in the second one, I just kind of walk into it. That's that's how do you miss? I mean, I feel like I'm looking at it. And I'm like, all right, and I spray and it just off to the right? I got it. And it's just not gonna I know what I do that. With like the Jason Taylor Cologne. I'm like damn it. That was like a buck fifty. They can smell you down the hall. Mike much. I like leasing Mark. Were you wearing today today today, very subtle? I wanted to see if you guys could smell me. I'm wearing two sprays of the Jason Taylor column. I said three earlier, so it's a three how do you have so many colognes, and like you you must have to spray that much to get through it all because if I had in the teens bottles of Cologne, I would never need another bottle for the rest of my life. I need to find they discontinued my favorite bottle of Cologne. I I still have my first bottle of Cologne. I thought at like a young ace K one. No, it was like Tommy thing. Oh, remember when I'm pretty sure I still have it. That's how little I use it. Yeah. I mean, I don't know what that's a booming industry, but Cologne. You don't need that much. Like, you can go through a bottle. It takes years to get the bottle. I need to find. I think they discontinued it by by dole Dolecek. It was like, the zebra Cologne. You remember that one? It's my all time favorite Cologne that won't all all you'd have to spur that once the very powerful few colognes where if you smell it. You just know exactly what it is. Yeah. Jason Taylor KOMO but can't call it. You have to have a refined know what it is. You have to have a refined knows if you have to wear if you have to ask you can't afford a baby. Wow.

As we watched these bourbon garden, gnome, Catholic Catholic without stubbing it in notice moves like not at all it's inanimate and utterly without brain function. But despite that when it got no here's about how gyco not only saves people money, but also gives them access to licensed agents twenty four seven online and over the phone. It's clear to them. You should switch because. Yes. Switching to Geico is a no brainer on second thought. Maybe don't watch garden gnomes to carefully people might talk. We have a board full of calls. Alison, and Billy are fighting. Also, I want to say something real quick right here. The biggest announcement in the show's history is coming next week. So just like we've gone national and announced that we move time slots, we've announced that we've gone to simulcast we've announced that we extended deals and we've announced that this is bigger than all of them. It's the biggest show announcement in the history of the show and that's coming tomorrow. And you know, what I don't think I'll mention in the national show is a local exclusive or die hard fan exclusive or person that has the patience to sit through the radio dot com app, by the way, there's like an Email that you could fire offer support. I heard Tobin say something about that. I have nothing to do. With folks. I'm sorry. I use it. But biggest announcement in the history of show coming next week, Billy? We have a lot of calls now. I'm wondering about the show nonce mint. I'd probably haven't told you about it. I mean, it's incredible. Oh, also, I want to drag this redshirt freshman from Florida through the mud. His name is Dirk to me, Andrew Chatfield. You see what this guy said? Nope. All right. Let me pull this up in Mike. All McCain's chats this guy. Oh my God. Enter chatfield. I have you and you and I have a problem kid kid. I don't know. How old you are? I don't even know. What is this? You want to American heritage and this guy. Oh my God. He is ruined my day. Hang on gotta pull up. Where's my? All right. Let me the my brain chat. Okay. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. I got this new iphone it's credibly frustrating. Very pretty thank you. It's a I need to get a new case. I miss my Brown's case, where's my chat with D money in part. Our line six. Good morning. All right, Mike, Ryan don't throw away your DVD's. I used to collect them. And what you do is you take all your movies put a face up on the floor, and yet people ever go around the room and everybody takes a movie out that they don't wanna see. So then it becomes a game of what are you gonna leave in at the end. What is the movie 'cause you know, if you hate the devil wears product, but it's still out there. But you also don't want to see the matrix revolutions. Could you go around the room at one take them out? This is fun game. It sounds messy. Do you watch the last movie standing is that whatever the last movie is no matter what it is your group. So how does this work is it like the game with like little wooden block? And like the golf tees where like you have a plan, but you start losing the plan, you know, and the the goal is to leave one. But you have to jump over one to the other. You guys know what I'm talking about or? No. Yeah. That's the most insane logic for just twenty eight like that. So it may not even be the movie you wanna watch. It's just the movie that you're stuck with because then there's all. Because at inevitably when it gets down to like, let's say you have five people are when it gets down to four movie someone most of the people aren't going to watch the movie that they want. So then becomes vengeful you take out movie other people's, you know, wanna watch. So then you have to lie about whatever you wanna watch. Nobody takes out your real movie that you wanna watch, but you can only get out movies that you can get to without touching lava. Exactly. So you can't touch the ground. Oh, that's actually help them that seems like a fun weekend. Hey, guys, come over to my house this weekend. I'm gonna throw a bunch of DVD's on the floor and one DVD will remain and you'll be unhappy. You'll be unhappy because it's it's fracture. Starring Ryan Gosling damping, and I had no idea I owned it. But thank you so much for your call. We appreciate it. All right. I found this quote from this actually this jerk face or demonstrating the behavior of a jerk facing Andrew Chatfield if that name sounds familiar to Miami hurricanes fans, it's because the Miami hurricanes recruited them, pretty hard. And he chose university of Florida market is a year gator, and I still like you. So this is a quote on facing Miami, Andrew Chatfield, redshirt freshman defensive end. I just see them as another team really because I feel like my whole team we face SEC teams big boy teams they face one SEC team. And they got smashed by LSU last time. I checked. What is wrong with what he says? It's actually entirely accurate, I made entirely. This is the address what I hate the Gators so much I hate this back and forth. All the time with the college trash talk because it seems fresh new because it's new kids saying it every three or four years, but it's all the same nonsense. Like I've heard that same quote about every non SEC team from every gator that's ever been interviewed. It's just well who's not living in the past like any Florida any Miami? Or Florida trash basically any college trash talk outside at Clemson and Alabama is a team essentially living in the past. So I can throw out the fact that I'll golden actually be Florida. Can I do that? Can I throw out the fact that Miami's twenty nine twenty six against Florida? And it's the only team in the ACC outside of Georgia Tech. That's what is losing record against to do that. You can do all that. And frankly, I hope you do all that. I hope the canes are really good. I hope there's some sort of a distraction from the rest of the south Florida scene 'cause it's just it's just getting sadder and sadder the more. I think about it not that the heat. Even that good with Dwayne the last couple of years, but it's just like man what is their down here. Like, there's just going to be nothing. Nothing. Really entertaining. Yeah. I mean, what happened two years ago with the university of Miami and the turnover chain and college game day and the the forty one to eight smashing of Notre Dame. That was that was the best sports moment. I think this market had had since the big three this mortgage dying to feel that way. Again. I think the hurricanes program is probably the closest to making south Florida feel good again. There's a lot of excitement around many many the is pulled up in a yacht. Got the pick them up at Monty's. And he showed up to the wharf in like the most Miami move ever. He's got the energy. He knows how to connect with young people. He gets in and all the ways Mark Rick didn't I'm very excited about this. But Ford is very good. Very good team. And I don't favor Miami in this game over Florida. I'd be insane to but I certainly hope we can shut Andrew Chatfield smell up and he calls it. We should go that Billy. Let's go to line four gold in. Well, we'll go to hold in that last. Call was actually really cool suggestion. So hold on. Let's see what you got. I guess we used to collect the state quarters that had the booklet and all the states, and he's the pop each one. And in there on the state for which states a quarter was I used to do that too. But that was such a long term plan, and it was only like five years something and I lost the patience. And then I realized hey, I have like six dollars in quarters just standing around that I could just use because at my really gonna doing this for ten years. Oh, I had both the booklet, and I had one of those giant foldable cardboard mats that you could put like on the wall. Where would you get that? You would you have to go to the post office. Well, I can ask hold Holden. You had the the booklet for all the state quarters. Right. Where would you get that? So it was like it was like a giant book. It was like a map that folded out into two. And it was like a big US map. Not sure it was a gift to me. So all happened when I was younger, and it was just a fun thing that that I used to do with my with my grandparents, so they used to call me these little quarters and pop them in the map, and then I got fifty of them. And now, I have no idea where it is. Wow. You got all fifty. I think you're the first person I've met that God all fifty odd Remond. No, real, congratulations. That's awesome. Thanks, one of my proudest achievements. Yeah. This is an indelicate question. But are your grandparents still alive? They are. Oh, wow. That's great. I was wondering a lot more delicate now Millwall. Yeah. Because I was wondering like he said he used to do with his grandparents I was hoping his grandparents saw through and they got to see all fifty two. I don't think I've fifty as well enough fifty two. But I'm I'm not sure that I've seen all fifty state quarters. They're out there, man. What they look like to your head. What the designers like what's the designed for Hawaii? Which is your favorite word for him. My favorite probably on this from. On North Carolina. I in flight rate. Playing acclaim. What was the last one when the completed the collection? It was probably Hawaii because I think it was sequentially Alaska. Oh was Alaska after Hawaii. I wouldn't get too. All right. Well, thank you for the call. Hold in. This was it was great getting to actually on one of our better callers. I remember that name. He calls us off dollars and fifty cents waiting for him somewhere. I appreciate anybody calls. Anybody that calls into the local hour. Wait, hold on a second. Don't you? He's going to liar. It's not a volcano. He's full me. Oh, do you think that will thing was a lie? I don't know. Now. I don't hold and callback right now holding we need to scold you. It's not a volcano. He absolutely lied about going to be holding you accountable fish whole hold whole holding his name is Holden. So it said hold on you hold the new accountable Holman you account. Why should we go to Billy explain the joke? Let's go to line three Adrian Adrian. Are you guys doing happy Friday this? So I used to collect Pokemon cards back when I was, you know, little younger thirty four sim. No, I'm I'm twenty nine now. But way, when I was nine ten ten years old. I used to collect them. Funny story though, very similar to Billy back then. And this might hit the field. There used to be on Saturdays tournaments at Toys R Us for Pokemon and to that. And I used to have all the holographic first editions in terms of Beena slower charge so forth. Did you ever get them? You. Yeah. I got. I didn't get the mmu for sedition. I got regular holographic new. But I also had the movie addition new as well from Burger King that they used to release would you buy would you play the Pokemon game? And when did you play did you play for keeps? So yes, I did play for keeps with my friends. But in the term threatment is more for spending to try to get like, exclusive cards and so forth. How useless aside? What how how useless aside doc? Doc was pretty useless until you ended up being able to Volve it to like Golda. And so it became like a useful type of player car. Same thing with magic are really meant. Magic carpet. I hate magic carb. How about how about snow like she was like sky. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I feel like I'm the physical embodiment snore lack. So I mean, if it's. Got that. He's he's big sleeps a lot all the time. I have never felt cooler. Yeah. Really, how cute a squirrel? Well, I mean, if I had to pick between the starters, it has to be chart did you ever get you ever get mad? When did you ever get mad when they went actually evolve into uglier poke him on because I was like, I I have this connection with squared all, and then he'd just volved, and he doesn't look the same. Not as cute. Yeah. I mean, I liked wardrobe war toner, look, a little cooler turtle as bad ass. We're turtle was bad ass. But just not as cute, a, squirrel. Exactly. And then I mean when you got to black boys. Like, yeah, it was cool. You have to double you know, you had to double cannons. And all that. But in the they wasn't really like your little friend anymore is more like, yeah. This essential full of destruction gigli puff guy. Tough. It's not really. Yeah. What was the third evolution of the gigli puff? Sit clary. I don't think I don't think that was a that was a separate Pokemon. Yeah. I play an uncle look at to you a little to say. All right. Thank you. But. You real quick. Just just the same thing that happens ability during that tournament, those a group of kids that ended up grabbing my entire bag of cards, and they pretty much just ran off with a and when I finished the tournament. I couldn't find my cars anywhere. So all those valuable cards that we're probably worth now. Hundreds of dollars are just all on. Did you file support? No, I was nine years old. So I did, you know. We'll guess what they're probably imprisoned now to just like, my neighbors. So we got that Adrian, let's hope for the best. All right atrium mall. The plural of Pokemon Pokemon. I got Billy you've been threatening. Putting people on blast all day. You wanna put Alison on blast? I have who I threatened to put on blast new the those kids, that's all your cards. No, I put them on bass, I didn't threaten them. No Alison threatened to ruin me. If I said something which is like a really aggressive strange threat. Is it aggressive considering what you were doing wasn't HBO violation. What is I'll ruin that threat? Well, did you hear? Yeah. I did actually I was right here. When he said, you uncomfortable is the highest ranking manager here. I didn't hear anything else. Backing and don't even get me started on compliance.

What do you mean? You're going to ruin me because I know a lot of things, and I'm like, what are you know, what's happening? No, I absolutely said he'd like there's three other people in this room might pretend like you didn't hear it. But roy. I e saying that it's obvious actually is it what did you written to expose? I didn't expose anything. I've found out what she collects. And I just started asking questions about it. And she said don't talk about it. I said, okay, fine. We'll talk about it. She goes. I said what you're doing? I if you bring it up on here, I'm serious that does sound threatening. It was really messing. You are more. Very intimidating. I kinda wanna go downstairs, honestly and take a stroll maybe talked one of the cops since downstairs doing like security for batboys three. And just be like, hey, how exactly does blackmail work? Like is is that what's going on right now acres threatened to ruin me? If I didn't go along with what you said. It was a bit aggressive. How would you ruin him? I don't even rates not a real thing. I wasn't serious. Don't collect anything. There was a point in my life. When I was married. It was a very brief moment. And my ex husband used to buy me this item. He used to buy me LA league. And it's stupid. It's like really expensive. So he would buy me lolly things. It's crystal is that a brand and so his turn of events. No. But I. How did he threatened to ruin me? And instead has like outed herself for somebody. That's not an outing of myself. It's just you were asked me what I collect. I didn't collect anything as a kid. So I don't have that. Oh, when I was married. He's the by this stuff. So I guess it was like a collection of whatever you just gave way too much information. You need to tell us any of this. She walked right now and Bailey's not even ruined. You'll take a stroll. What? I'm menacing. I'm the furthest thing from menacing. No. You were very intimidated. Okay. Good very badly. Negotiator like hostage negotiator. You just give them everything they wanted. Well, but who cares? No, one cares hostage negotiation. It's cared. You'd this last person. Take me hostage. It'd be like you're so annoying. Stop talking you need to go. It'd be like why are you taking me really? You don't really want to do this. I would just be talking all the time in the history of hostage situations as anyone ever got like an airplane or helicopter 'cause they always ask for one and movies. It's a good question. I don't think they ever get it. So I keep trying can win. Look that up. I think in history of hostage situation afternoon. They came so close came so close to get on that helicopter. Doc. I mean, he's just talk about medicine. He's giving me his dirty lame duck. No, no, no, wasn't it a bit. He got the plane. There was a plane on the tarmac, right? Yeah. Actually gotten it. I think it sort boarding it. Yeah. But in the car, how did they get to though, they got bus to the the airport dog day afternoon movies? If I wanted to watch a movie this weekend for the first time, what movie should it be? I can throw a bunch of DVD's on the phone. We can pick the last almost famous almost I love it. That's your favorite movie right ever. How long has it right around two hours? How many things blow up the Bamiyan this one relationship? Stillwater? You look like a, Freddie, Billy. I look like a, Freddie. Yeah. Thanks, and when when Mike shaves he looks like a Jared Jared air is not the first Jared. I got I think the municipal look like a TJ. Yeah. I don't think like going to teach it to do you have that Stillwater water t where it's just Billy crude up and then everybody else's a shadow. I want to get that. I found it on Oetzi. Once I I need a purchase at shirt, who's your favorite character in almost famous. Man. I gotta go with penny lane. Yeah. I think I like penny. It was a bit overwritten. But but that was Karen crow crow made in a good movie sense. Like he had that would didn't. He wasn't he behind. Aloha. I don't know. Yeah. He he was Emma stone played an Asian. You gotta go through all the callers. We have you know, let's go through. All right. David's online one. Hello, david. David. Okay. Yeah. I mean, hey, what's up? Hey, David now, watch I gotta same fool collection. Okay. Pillow pets pillow pets there? I mean, I don't know. If you've got that what they are not. But please explain cuddly little furry little pillow things you fold in half. And they unfold and they turn to like little animal elk road. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. He's saying, but I had like trash bags full of these things, man. I'm not really most. I don't know. I got a big beard. I don't really look like it should be on a bunch of pillow bed. Why did you want a bunch of pillow pets? I was in high school. I had an emergency credit cards. My parents we screwed around and go to Walgreens. I just the latest Filipi was ever on the show. I don't think that's what an emergency credit card is for. No, probably not. But that's how it ended up happening. How much did you rack up for your parents? Oh god. I don't know. I didn't keep track of that. When I was there. But what else what else can put on your parents emergency credit card besides pillow pets, but see candy. I bought a lot of fish fish. I was big into finishing nine high school. Yeah, I fish like goldfish. Fish trying to do the fish tank thing, you know, by a bunch of fish things amateur style. But the fish tank is a regrettable purchase. Isn't it? It never ends. Well, what kind of fish? Would you get the fish that eats? All the other put it on the poll because that's happened to me seven times in my life. It's so bad. I had bunch of fairs and they all kept dying. So I get more. And then when my best friend at the time, he would call me fiscal dumping and fish killer. And this is my fish and after that put them on blast. What the phone on his name's James? But you've never Dave. What is the name of James the fish killer? Give us his name. He's last name do it. Now, that's who pood- crews out James crews called you the fish killer. So you by face pillow pets, what else would you buy any big item? Trying to think honestly, I'm I'm I'm trying to negotiate with Mike Ryan about buying those DVD's trying to give away come over to the house. You're gonna have everything except the complete series of full house. Give them your address. I'll pull up. We're going to undisclosed location. So we're going to get a flame Mimi at the Westchester playing against giving. I'm always there. Got can you go? Oh, sorry. Can you barter maybe give them some pillow pets or some DVD's pillow cat one pillow pet remaining which one is a cute baby penguin? I'll take that. I'll take all my DVD's for your penguin pillow pet obviously means a lot to you. Because you've kept this one the emergency. Greg cards, still good. You should bring that. Now the dosing point Westchester flames. But that Westchester flames. Mimi their Westchester, flanigan's. Yeah. What time what what do you think? I mean when asked me on Tuesday Wednesday prime rib Monday. Louis. Kind of set this. I'm serious because my girlfriend you can catch me two hours. You can catch me. They're the two hours of the day that it's not happy hour. Oh, all right. All right. I'll be playing fire tunes on the touch tunes. Good. I can't tell you can't dollar. To comfortable. We got too comfortable. I mean, would we were? We're going to address I thought you threw away the DVD's throughway two bags. I got seven bags remaining. Why would you go back to that length and get rid of two bags, but not all of them? If you're not looking what you're throwing shoes. I know look seed I needed to clear some room, but just get rid of them. That's mess. Guys noticed that all these collections that you used to have when you were kids and trash bags now. It's seven bag. No, yeah. No, I had twelve bags and I just math run, Dan. Oh, by the way, bigger show announcement in the history of the show coming next week. Dan, do you collect anything shameful? Beer cans. When I was a kid. Oh, did you crush them? Did you, you know, did you guys is that is that such an antiquated hobby as a kid does anyone do that anymore Fridays? Were you a nine hundred one drinking? Oh, I don't know. I was nine ten eleven you kept them intact. You didn't crush them. You just keep them intact ahead them all on my wall. My wall was covered in beers. From all over the beer cans from all over the world drinking from all over the world, kid, no view, you probably had. No because I'll tell you why. There were these weird outpost this can exist anymore. There was a place near our house where I could go to a giant dump filled with all sorts of beer cans from all over the world. I don't know if it was before it was recycling. I would crawl around in there and find beer cans from all over the world gross. Your parents did your parents find out about this and tell you to some doing that at and you know, when I'm forty one years old. They can't tell me much anymore. I actually started collecting beer bottles from around the world, but from like places that I'd visit. So like if I'd go to like an island in the Caribbean, and they had their own beer that they got their. I'd bring up your back with me. But that's part of the whole idea of collecting is doing grabbing. Something that you've been or some sort of experience of yours just running rummaging through the other people's trash. Like, the only one there have to be people in the audience of a certain age. You see anybody else thing that among some of my friends that the collection of beer cans and putting them on the wall was the thing. Now that I think of it I liked it. A lot of stuff. I collect wine corks. I collect vinyls. I collect TVD's. I collect sneakers I collect scalps. Put it on the poll. Guillermo is it weird to collect beer cans as a child or was it weird in the nineteen? I think though weird part is crawling around at the dump to get hands that belong to other people would be like a night. It would be like a day out an amusement park because I can actually find cans I'd never seen before because this is all pre internet. I can't see what a rare a German beer, can is not something that I could have had any act was your prize beer. Oh god. I don't remember. There were metal cans that were I too long ago to would you even know if you didn't have the internet to look up what kind of candidate? But what was the coolest looking one? No, there were all sorts of cool ones because other countries sometimes get creative and artsy with their can you know, what I like a nice cannon Miller lite. Classic design white cannon just really pops. I love that color scheme. Or are you with me on the Miller lite can? That's right. They sponsor. What's happening, right. No, no. I'm just Miller like they're not a sponsor, although they have sponsored us in the past. I just think the color scheme pops a main can have an honest opinion. Did you wear gloves or like, how did you do seems really here? No, forty years later about whatever disease today where two years later. Listen were forty one eighty keep on hold onto the threat. Billy, are you worried? Are you concerned? Release something on my on me with my hands forty years ago in Dighton pit you could been cut by anything. There could have been anything there radioactive spider. Do you know how hard it is to get to the middle of the beer cans when your way would I do without crushing the other way. Because I've been fat since then. Really was there. Anyone else doing this? Like, did you how did this happen? How children just running around and the dump? There was hard. There wasn't a junk yard. It was like a secret place somebody Yanni test. But because it was like in Mars could place. It was you were at the secret place in Miramar felt like it was a forest. It may have just been my backyard of a secret family. I don't know just great toadies garage shit is actually happened. No, no. I just made the whole thing up does no kids. Don't collect kids. Didn't you guys? Don't know what I'm talking about. Nobody not at all.

HR 1: Marlin Virus

"Here. We go people another big day. What is up? What is happening? We've got. Just two days away from Lakers. Clippers unbelievably excited about that. L. AFC beat Seattle last night they advance to the next round of the MLS back tournament, and of course the dodgers are in Houston. Today to face the evil hated trash can bang in Houston Astros in a showdown from the two thousand seventeen world series Ireland. What's up, man? So yeah, a lot to get to and this dodgers, Astros thing would be a really be deal. If the Florida Marlins didn't of set baseball on its ear, right three or four more positive tests now. So we're up to what is it? Fourteen players now and four digital members, which brings the total to seventeen members of the traveling party are now positive for Kobe nineteen, and by the way it gets so confusing. Phillies who the marlins played over the weekend have had zero positive cova tests among players. Apparently, there was a clubby, the tested positive according to Bob. Nightingale but no philly players have tested positive, but because there's an incubation period for corona virus. We won't know if anybody on the fills. Has It until later in the week? So they're not gonNA play until at least Friday meanwhile Miami their games have been postponed at least through the weekend. The Washington nationals were supposed to be in Miami this weekend. They held the team vote and they voted not to go and play that series, so baseball obliged. and. The phillies hormone home series has been postponed. Now with the Marlins and the phillies both shut down for the week the Yankees will go to Baltimore for a series, a surprise series, starting tomorrow and Thursday. It is just a rock and mess while you can do that when there's no fans, and when you're all playing within your division, you yeah just kind of move them around like puzzle pieces. But what will probably develop were on. The air were on from now until six thirty. Is this rumor that is starting to. It's drumbeat starting to get a little bit louder. There's a talk show host in Pittsburgh named Andrew Phillip Pony. He just had Bob Nightingale on her show Bob. Of course, the well respected USA Today baseball writers. Phillip Pony, says Nightingale came on your show and said the marlins outbreak started because Miami players left their hotel. To go have a good time in Atlanta right which is. Not Allowed your? These guys are all supposed sure semi quarantined now. What's interesting about that? Mace is that if you look at the other numbers Yep? Sixty four hundred tests have been conducted by Major League Baseball since Friday. There have been no new positives of Onfield personnel from any of the other twenty nine clubs prior to the Marlins weekend outbreak. Ninety nine of the more than thirty two thousand samples, zero point three percent, while had been positive, so if it turns out. That the Marlins all went out together in Atlanta. And picked up the virus somewhere. They're away from their hotel and away from the ballpark. I would have no problem if they just kneecap the marlins well. Here's a question, John So. They they. Their home base is Miami. The series was in Philadelphia. What the hell were they doing in Atlanta, weren't they there didn't they open in Atlanta and then go to Philadelphia wasn't their first series in Atlanta. That's where they played right before they went to Philadelphia. Maybe that. Maybe that's right. Maybe I'm pretty sure that would that would, then that would then make some sense, yeah, and and so. They? All went out in Atlanta. What is it about Atlanta? Lou Williams now the Marlins. I remember it wants to go out in Atlanta no Orleans were at the phillies for opening weekend. No, no. Would have been. It would have been like dodgers angels. It would have been like preseason. A preseason game, right? Season series I'm assuming yeah. And so if they did that, they've already been taken out this week. They basically said you're not playing until Sunday. MOM At least Sunday I would have zero problem I. Don't Think Baseball, do it. But I would have zero problem if they said you know what we're all in this together. We. How you act affects the rest of the League. We know you have a bad team. You're not gonNA make the playoffs, but this is ridiculously erase. Savior you guys are done your out of the sixty game season, everybody that plays the marlins gets automatic. Win Done Sia! Would you have any problem with that? Problem if it turns out, they all went out together and that's how they picked it up. would. Well okay, so so the the hypothetical is they all went to a strip club and got infected well. I didn't say Strip club. That's out there to. Bob Nightingale. Said went out to have a good time and I. Just I assume a good time in Atlanta. Means that could well, it's not a it's not a ridiculous assumption by you know by the way if it's that. Then, it makes my question even easier. Correct then. It seems really reckless then, aren't we? Isn't that a double standard with Lou, Williams? Players are backing up Lou Williams. They're like he just went to a restaurant where. To be dancing. It. Can't if if this is true that the Marlins went out, why can we? Why should that double standard exists? I am told that there were no dancers in the club. Where Lou Williams was was it was dancer free? It was just open for food. Is there any strip that's open? I mean I'm not a strip club guy, but are they open? Yeah I. Don't know the answer to that based on where you are in the country I would imagine in some places the country there are open. And yet I'm places like victor that I mean even if it just turns out that they all went out and went to a party like this is what am with that women's soccer team. DidN'T THEY ALL GO OUT IN ORLANDO? They all went out to dinner together. And yet they all to a bar right to celebrate somebody's birthday, and and eleven of them got coverted, and they said you're done. You're out of the League see. Here's. Here's the thing they're terrible team. They're in a concert rebuilding mode. They've got no talent of note like yesterday I was trying to think of their their star players I mean Sandy Al Qatar is starting Pitcher Form Brian Anderson? Joe Jonathan Vr they don't. They don't have a lot of guys, so the League will survive without the Florida the Miami Marlins. It may be. It may be that you just kneecap. The marlins. At the same way to franchises dropped out of the MLS back tournament right because we've made. This release is just a sixty game tournament. And They've been trying to do things on the cheap in Miami ever. Since Derek Jeeter took over YEP, and now they're acting like idiots, so let we'll see what happens now. That's okay, so that's the big story in baseball. Yes, the dodgers going into Houston. Yeah is a pretty big deal. Could he bellinger came out when the. Penalties were announced and AJ hinch and Jeff Liu now. The manager and the general manager of the Astros were fired for their role in the cheating scandal. Cody bellinger came out and said well now everybody knows they just stole a ring from us. Right and Ross rippling said were never gonNA forget it. Tonight. They meet on the same field for the first time since those comments right. Do you expect your kind of an old school baseball guy? Do you expect. Is it Walker Bueller WHO's pitching? Walker. buehler's on the mound for the dodgers tonight does he put a ball in somebody's ribs? I am going to say. No, he does not. Be Kind of obvious, wouldn't it? Well, we'll be obvious, and I would imagine if I'm an empire there. I'm going to warn both sides before the game. Even start look we're. This is not going to turn into a bean ball war. We recognize what happened before, but what happened happening? This is This is twenty twenty I also think the. The pandemic and what has gone on. In the last six months in this country has to whatever degree dampened some of the rage about what went on during the two thousand seventeen world series well entire voice. Your point now is fair to say it's the Astros of the luckiest team ever. They were going to get booed everywhere. They went. And now there's no fans to boom, right. Now here's the thing if if the dodgers were to get a lead tonight, let's say they get a comfortably. Because Astra's a really good team. The night there are seven to one eight, two one up seven, one eight to one. Plunk Jose Altuve. If you get Jack, you get jacked, just do once. Just to a wedding your, didn't you? Have you always taught me that if you do that? The Astros are required to respond if the dodgers hit, TV then dote. The Astros have to hit bellinger before the end of the series well or bets. What is the the infraction? Here is twenty seventeen wouldn't astro player retaliate for the dodgers retaliating against the cheating in the two thousand seventeen world series. I kind of think it would put the whole thing. I mean as much as possible to bed. Well the old baseball axiom is if they hit your best player you this is. I got this from Tony Larussa. You immediately. Target that an equal player of ability and the other team, so if if Bueller Hits L. Tubay, they're gonna hit bellinger or bets. If not today, they'll hit him on hit him tomorrow. Here's the thing though. If you steal a world series from us. We plunk altuve. That's the way I look at it. Yeah, but they don't think they did. You think they did. They they think that they would yeah. They've all, said it. Korea said it managed. There's. All they all said it. They've that they would have won without the trash cans. That's what they believe. Yeah, they would not have one without the trash cans. You and I think that. By the way you agree with that right I do but I, don't. I don't agree that they think that I think they think that they would have won anyway because they're cocky baseball players. Yeah, they've got no shame. They've got absolutely no shame. Yeah, it would have been well. Here's the thing we at least get to see him play in one hundred sixty two game season the way the schedule came up before the Astros and dodgers didn't meet right. There was no interleague play. The Astros and the so at least we get to see him play for games this year and the best thing you can do is punch him in the mouth and beat them four times. That's the very best thing you can do. Right and then doesn't mean you can't buzz some guys Ka. Some guys against hitting guys on purpose all the time because I. Think you could wreck somebody's career I. Just don't think it's smart, but it's as you've explained to me a million times. You used to work in the minor leagues. Forget what I think. It's the it's the way baseball works. Me a police themselves yeah meets out discipline. It's self. Regulating system is the way now I will say this. I was listening to buster only podcast this morning. As I often do, and the one thing buster says it's surreal being in a ballpark because everybody can hear everything in other words if the dodgers start barking at the Astros. I won't say Taunting, but start barking at the Astros. We're going to hear that and we may hear the Astros respond if I was the dodgers I think in the clubhouse. I would take a trash can and every time and astro step to the plate I would start pounding on that trash can. As a way to signify, we know what you did. You got away with it, but you're not getting away within the future. Just Bang. That trash can what do you think of that as a strategy? kind of like it. It's not against the rules to a trash can. Yeah kind of like it. It's Kinda. snippy enough where? It is it's exactly what it is. It's like it's a little F-, you just a little. You I guess it is. All right so coming up there. There is a couple of different pieces of Laker News Yeah there are. First of all Anthony Davis might not play. Thursday night in the bubble against the clippers. We have Frank Vogel talking about that. And did you see the ESPN expert predictions I did? Surprise surprise. We'll get into that coming up and also Dave McMenamin Lakers be writer for ESPN IS GONNA.

Yes, there is now some question. As to whether or not. Anthony Davis is going to play for the Lakers now on Saturday morning. Davis played in a scrimmage against Orlando and he was killing it in the first quarter he had twelve points and nine rebounds in the first quarter. And then somebody poked him in the eye. Yeah, so after practice today Frank Vogel was asked. ARE WE GONNA? See Anthony Davis on, Thursday. Here's what Vogel set. Day to day and while he's still dealing with. Discomfort. There is some concern that he could potentially not play. Thursday We're hopeful that he does and We'll see how that plays out. You know he's GonNa. Continue to be evaluated each day. thinking, yeah, go ahead all right so the Lakers have a five and a half game lead. Going into these eight seating games, yes, there is. Nothing more important. If you're running the Lakers. Then the health of Danny Davis Lebron James The up the health of any player but Anthony Davidson Lebron James in particular. If either. One of those guys were to aggravate an injury or have a problem. I don't think you can win the title with them. Both healthy your favorite. If Anthony Davis is not one hundred percent. Don't play them. You, know I would have zero problem with the Lakers saying. Take all the time. You need I mean the whole thing is you want to tune the machine up? But there's no reason to force anybody to play in the first game back in a seating game situation where the Lakers for all intents and purposes have locked up the number one seed in the West. So, it doesn't make sense to push Anthony Davis to play if his I is if he is an injury to his I in some way. Sent them. That's okay. That's okay. These are still there called seating games I mean they don't even count towards team awards or season awards. It's going to be choppy I. Don't think the basketball is going to be especially crisp. I think we're GONNA see kind of a a rocky start to the if Anthony. Davis is already. Don't play him. Right and I'll give you quite. Leonard has played in all three of the clipper scrimmages. Yes, and he was awful. He I think he shed twenty three percent. If I'm a clipper fan. I'm not the least bit worried about that about why. And I think the clippers if I need these. Games to kind of work his way up. Go ahead and play him. If Natalie doesn't WANNA play, all you need is to have him ready and I think that's the way they're looking at. It shows a fascinating thing. ESPN pulled sixteen people who cover basketball for the network. Yes, these are. People like Nick for Dell and Chris Herring and Baxter homes and Tim McMahon and Bobby Marquesa dial the guy in here, yeah! Sixteen guys. So. They ask them all right. Who's going to win the East? That was predictable. Everybody said Milwaukee. Thirteen of the sixteen pick. MILWAUKEE COUPLE! OF TORONTO'S IN THEIR THREE PICK TORONTO. Yeah, all right, but nobody else. No, no other. People when they ask who's going to win the West and this surprise me a little bit. Nine experts say Clippers Yup seven say Lakers so almost fifty fifty, but a slight edge to the clippers. And now here's what surprised me a little bit. Who's going to win the NBA Finals? Clippers eight. Bucks for Lakers three now Toronto one. I get Dave McMenamin coming on at three thirty. I can't wait till mcmanamon or somebody reads this to Lebron Right. This is like the best thing that ever could have happened if you're a Laker Fan. People are going to tell Lebron that all these experts say he's not even making it to the finals. And I think that he'll look at that and say okay. He's already completely motivated. Yeah, put on board material. Put doubt on his mind and see what happens next. In fact, Lebron did a press conference today Zumur today after practice and Steve I'm going to let you know. We're GONNA do this. And Lebron talked about his process, his emotions before tip off on Thursday I have no idea, obviously different different circumstances different Different I mean that's the twenty twenty people have been asking your Scipio now is the bubble and I said it's twenty twenty. is is different in his You have to be able to adjust to US so I. Don't know as far as. You know it was like a home game. I staple center. They won't have that feeling because our fans just give us so much. Energy are fans. Give us so much supporting. We want to try to give back to him on the floor, but also the same. We are fans back in La and all over California over to world. Want us to our for Santa's play again. So you know it's our job to go out and perform because they're still supporting us honored phones or tablets or TV's or. Laptops case maybe. This is interesting. He was asked What does the team due to keep Kobe close? But every day I mean see what's in our Laker. Dear the Lakers franchises Today without cokes. Presence along the guys wail. Knowing Office. Kobe's present his legacy. Purple and go on a Laker. You Know Carol You'd think about basketball in general before I became. A laker off his. Legacy was. That opportunity to play. With them, not only an all star games, but with an Olympic team multiple times. You're ballplayer. The game. You play the game, even if even if you don't even play the game, just fan, there's no way you can. Take a about Kobe but. Yeah. I mean it's hard to believe now. The the Kobe tragedy happened. It seems like it happened forever ago. Back in in January, in it's been a really long year but that that is still there that that Kobe Bryant sort of the the tragedy hanging over this team and the fact that you know there's some sentiment that this is something that they need to overcome and sort of. In get a ring win a championship kind of four Kobe. That idea is out there. That ideas out there. And it adds pressure but John if you go back to that list. Of of do you think somebody people who pick? Who Pick, the clippers to win the series are. I don't say wrong. It's a legitimate pick right Oh. Sure. They've played three times this year and the Clippers won twice. Clippers beat the Lakers on opening night, and they beat him on Christmas Day now the most recent time they played Yup the Sunday before they shut down the season. I would think would be the best barometer because both teams were one hundred percent healthy. And the Lakers beat them. It was the only lost. The clippers have suffered this year when they've had their full roster. They're nine and one when they have everybody playing and the Lakers. beat him right interesting about that. Is You know who had a huge game for the Lakers that day? Avery Bradley. Twenty, four points yeah so. He's not going to be in the bubble now. Lou Williams won't be. It's nothing that's nothing that dion waiters can't fix or Jr. Sway are Smith can't fix yeah I'm. I'm very confident that the Lakers are going to be ready. I think that their mindsets good. They think that you know the only thing that would. would be a blow to my confidence would be if Anthony, Davis or Lebron got hurt. Oh! Which is why what Frank Vogel said today about well. We may sit Anthony Davis out Thursday. If Anthony. Davis is not one hundred percent. Sit Him out and I think Anthony should call my friend. James Worthy and get the James. Worthy Goggles to play in the BUG member worthy put on those clear goggles. After he stepped, he started getting poacher ended up wearing them. The rest of his career got the idea from Kareem. Who Wore Goggles? and. Anthony protect that I and let's go absolutely is he's the one guy that I don't think the clippers can guard all right coming up next for you. We are going to go live to the bubble with MC ten Dave, McMenamin will join us with the very latest Mason Ireland seven ten espn. ESPN Mason in Ireland. What is up? It is Tuesday. The Astros will be playing. The dodgers tonight. In Houston. We will have more on that coming up for you a little bit later on. This is the first game between the two teams since the twenty seven world series. But I think you, said date McMenamin their. Debut, we. Yep We got her McMenamin joins US day. What's up? Man! Not much man. Just in my twenty four hour here to bubble nineteen I. WE could talk for the rest of the night if you want. What the Hell is a tier to bubble quarantine. Here appear to I will be going to the Games. I will not be interacting with the players, and so they're only making sure. We have a our quarantine so I don't get other folks doing the same sick. Obviously if you're around the players, they care a little bit more, so you gotTa do seventy quarantine that later on in this time down in Orlando but yeah got tested. This morning gotta stick in the room until tomorrow morning if I get the thumbs up negative. be at their in on Thursday to follow like your clippers, but yeah I I think they're going to put us here to folks up somewhere in the rafters, and and they let the one folks actually be closer to the players Okay Dave so in your opinion does Anthony Davis play against the clippers for the Lakers on Thursday. I've been going back and forth John. He certainly is someone that came to La, knowing that he had a reputation of being a soft player, and he really put himself out there this year to change their reputation, and you know when his elbow was hurting her when his shoulder was hurting supply through it, I think back that game he had in New Orleans. Close to Thanksgiving right the night before giving where it's shoulder was kinda jacked up but he knew there were so many eyeballs about him going back to play the Pelicans that he wasn't gonNA. Allow himself to not fight through it. And he had monster game, and the Lakers had come back with and so to me. He's got another same thing this narrow. There's GonNa be a lot of people like salivating for Thursday night to see this match, coli, and Lebron Ad Paul, George and so. With that context I say yeah I think he plays but I. The caveat of like Frank both open up door that he wouldn't play when Franken have to ran. He normally doesn't playing gamesmanship. Thing, there's the champion quite. Yeah as as you look at that and as we saw with. Jared Smith and dion waiters. How do you see those guys because they both looked really good in these last couple of scrimmages? How do you see them figuring now? Well Dionne in particular because I think he had a pretty consistent Ron on those three games in terms of the stuff he was doing. A frank wants him to be a secondary playmaker for them, and and and really have a ball of his hands, and not just score himself, but get into the paint and spray out the shooter's Jr who obviously he looked fantastic against the wizards, but the wizards aren't an NBA team. They have no money that that are really the level of the playoff competition that the Lakers will expect to be playing so Jay. I WanNa feel more and also the kind of the diversity of skill set the he brings before even though at times, he was a very effective defender in Cleveland and perhaps would bring that more so than Dion does. But I think right now, the will be the person to I would be slotting in for more playing time between the two. Days mcmanamon with us from Orlando where he stuck in the hotel for at least twenty four hours. Dave Kyle. Kuzma. His name keeps coming up. Jared Dudley said been killing it in practice frank. Vogel is mentioned it. You're obviously somebody who covers the team every single day. How much stock should we put in the fact that everybody's talking about how Kouzmines killing it down there? And then he comes out on Saturday and lights it up I think he finished ten for twelve or ten thirteen. Made five or six threes to start. Has Coups. MMA turned a corner or found something in Orlando. Yeah John I was actually watching spectrum at some point during the quarantine and I saw you on one of these laker top ten shows talking about this shack story where he scored sixty on his thirtieth birthday, because clippers didn't leave and tickets right well. This wasn't quite sixty on his thirtieth, but he scored twenty five hundred twenty fifth. That was pretty cool there you go with the guy. Showing out and feeling good about life and I think it's similar. We were hearing so many good things about Couva last summer with USA can't. It was like he was the guy, room ray got hurt is yeah. Yeah, had turn and heads, and then he got hurt, and that lingered into the season, and then he was dealing with a completely new role play ten minutes less per. Per Game Any was last year and I think he was kind of just trying to find himself, but whatever he did over over quarantine over this four-month hiatus is body is right. His confidence is Right Basketball SA- competent game i. can he ride this streak all the way through without having some doldrums? Probably not, that's not realistic but I. Think Keith in a much better. Entry Place Right now that he was back in October when they were starting the coral regular season and I think that's a great thing for the Lakers. As you look at the the clippers and the Lakers the clippers have taken a much different route to being here. multiple players took time away from the bubble to take care of personal business. I, think everybody's back now except Lou will. Who is quarantine because of because he ate chicken wings. The dreaded lemon pepper. Chicken Wing Quarantine. But they've approached it in a in a much different way. Is Doc just operating in a in a looser way than other coaches? How are so many clippers leaving the bubble? Well I. Well some of it. Yeah is even though there are what a handful of guys right. They are individual situation so I. Think it's fair conversation base, but I wouldn't want to necessarily loop into whatever Docs approaches. You guys gotta take. What comes up right I think one thing that definitely has is the long view and he recognizes that. Yeah, we would love to have a large guys. On Thursday the Lakers, but but really we got all guys. Ready to play in what late September in the Western Conference finals to make the finals and Because of that I it civil posts, they took with Kawhi. Leonard All year on quite frankly you know where. We're not GONNA play in back to back, so we're going to give him rest as we need to. Because we wanted to be able to play his best when the Games matter most and so I, don't think anything's changed on that front You know. It also quiet so good that he could have a three per sixty performance like you had over the weekend and then opening night trump forty, and it wouldn't surprise me so we'll see how it plays out, but I wouldn't judge the clippers. Really based on what you see Thursday. Verse Verse what you see throughout all the season games like the clippers might not. Clicking in the fashion that that they need to be or should be to like the second rap. And quite frankly the Lakers could be similar. Right you know you won't know until this thing starts Dave McMenamin with us from Orlando Dave. They. Ask Sixteen of our ESPN. Colleagues who cover basketball to predict how the Orlando Playoffs would end in in the western conference, nine of them pick the clippers and seven of picked the Lakers, and when they were asked. Who's going to win the NBA Finals? The clippers were the choice of eight of the sixteen four people Milwaukee three pick the Lakers and one pick. Toronto does the. Picking the clippers over the Lakers by a national panel surprise you. It does I usually do these things like ESPN has me on? Did you do this one? I bowed out because I. Just how can you predict an in a pandemic? You predict. Particularly good conscious was happening in baseball. Now I'm not I'm not I'm. GonNa I'm gonNA ballots went out. Yeah, it makes sense I I I think. I can see you know the conference where the team on paper right and is the terminator. Look when he did last year to the postseason, so. I don't. I. Don't smirk anyone for making that call and I guess what directly say well. Was it eight eight, seven or something like? Nine seven. To win the West and then eight people pick the clippers to win an all. But kind of a coin toss, but who's GonNa make the West So. Dave, can you do me a favor? Can you please take the results of that poll and read them to Lebron? Because I think when you do, he will just go really. Kobe used to do that. Used to tell Koby couldn't do something, and he would just go out and torch. People I think Lebron. Has has that inner to think of a bunch of people tell the brand that everybody's picking the clippers that will use it. Oh for sure. Or when? When the the warriors came back to play The The cabs in Cleveland and Steph. Curry said you know that that visiting locker room spells still smells like champagne. Lebron was begging for one of us to ask actually media session ended. Bras about the walkways like other asked about the champagne common. A. All right good well, there's I know they're not letting you close to the players, but Nick Zoom with Lebron ask him what he thinks of of the national media picking the clippers to knock it the Lakers out of the playoffs I. Think I think it might help us. So what are you going to do like? You can order room service, right? Yeah I got I got a breakdown. This room service menu and a little bit I like. Yeah, we're doing a ton of. Preview, content I got a bunch of work to do, but I'll do a room service. I'm not giving these people like is running laps in their room. Right who was it who said they were running laps in the room? Somebody actually said they were running a mile a day in their room, but couple of. My really good President Media Job Arden of the athletic cow and of Orange County Register. Guys I think are guys, but. They're running in the room like. Just running around the room, running in place, running laps and then like. About it! Yeah, come on! Mason that's what you would do basin. You would run a lap and then posted posed about. quit running right away. I just did it for one lap. Just because I want some of that Joe Vardhan? Kyle goons shine. People. Get inside the great term by the way shine shine is like you should patent that. But. People get locked up permanently for doing stuff like that. They don't get out of quarantine. True, it's true. wrote a little well. All right well Dave. Listen to have a good evening and tier two. And? Thank you for doing this. We may call you back since we know you're just sitting around, but thank you for doing this. Thanks man! I can save. Day McMenamin. Goon shine. Heard other people say they're running around the room I. Mean there there are grounds I we don't want you. Run on the ground so again. Bubble can't leave room. For Twenty four hours he's gotta stay in his room. That's that's what he explained is part of the Tier to quarantine for twenty four hours? He M-. He cannot leave the room. Correct cannot have contact with other people. Even though he's getting nowhere near, the players thought tier two meant no, not if he's in quarantine hotel, my understanding is you just he's been tested. Yeah, so now you stay away from others. And then tomorrow is GonNa get an email that says okay. You're good to go, and then you can go to the Games, but he can't go down by where the players are. He's going to be up at the top right, right. He's going to be, but if he were to go do it. You're suggesting like go for a run. Then it would go fishing. Go outside. Go Fish One. is to go. Yeah, once he clears this level. He can do it, but I don't think he can do that yet, okay? supposedly I was listening to Zach Lowe. Today Zach access there's a way to. GET BUBBLE AD J. for credited. Media you stay off the bubble site. You come in only to go to the Games, and you sit way up high, and you get no access to players, and then you leave, so you have no contact with anybody, but you do get to see the games from way up high in the arena. That's what the baseball writers are doing. Member Bill Plunkett told us that he writes he's the only way he's asking. Questions of Dave Roberts and cody bellinger, and those guys is via zoom, but strangely he's watching them from the press box, but he never goes into the clubhouse. Yes, it's strange. It's a whole new world we're living in. Yeah, it really is and and by the way and I don't know when it's going to go back. I. Don't know when it's GonNa. Go bad like life. Save that for later in the show is going to was going to do something right there, okay? Well, I don't want one thing we should at some point circle back to is. What's the next move for the MARLINS? Yeah, because I of the MARLINS and for Major League Baseball because I think it affects the whole league. I think whenever they decide to do with the MARLINS, it sets the tone for the rest of the baseball season. So. We'll update people next on what the latest on the on the Miami Marlins is. It's not good. It's not good. It's gotten worse in fact, Mason and Ireland seven ten espn. Your ass. Dodgers Astros tonight. They did a lot of cheating. In the 2017 world series and tonight. It's a rematch between the two teams in Houston member when cody. BELLINGER reported spring training. He said that Jose altuve ace stole the MVP from Aaron Judge and that the Astros stole a world series ring from the dodgers. He also said he lost all respect for the Astros as players dodger closer Kenley Jansen. Publicly suspicious about a slider, he threw Alex Bregman who hit for a home run in game. Four of the twenty seventeen world series called signed stealing worse than steroids and Justin Turner furious when Houston owner Jim Crane said that signs stealing didn't impact the Games. I would say this is the most critical I have seen one team of another team in modern baseball ver-very. Yeah, and do you think in modern sports history? has there ever been this level of criticism in other words there, not just criticizing what happened in the game. They're criticizing their personal integrity. Right, the and blatantly accusing them of cheating, which which makes tonight's game interesting, and by the way too late I pitch it six ten Los Angeles time, which is yeah ten in Houston. I'm not sure why it starting so late. It probably has something to do with TV but But you can watch the game on Sports Net L. A. and. And we're going to. We're going to be on right up until. Almost first pitch. Soccer Buehler's debut for the dodgers. He didn't feel. He was ramped up her ready to pitch in the opening series against the giant, even by the way. He's only expected I mean he's going to be on a strict pitch count. We may see him. Only go three or four innings. based on how things go tonight. So meanwhile the the Miami Marlins disaster that that rob Manfred says is not one. Continues to unfold. There were more positive tests seventeen now members of the marlins traveling party have tested positive for Co. vid the Phillies who the marlins played over the weekend so far have had zero positive covid tests, but remember there's an incubation period for corona virus, so we won't really know if anybody in the fills has until later on this week, and that's why the phillies. Play until at least Friday. The MARLINS AREN'T GONNA play until at least Monday. So these teams are being shut down and now you now you wonder. What are they doing with the schedule? All of a sudden the MARLINS lose a week. philly loses four dame's. This is what we said yesterday. I think the in this extraordinary year. We've never seen anything like it. We're going to be in a situation where some teams play. Fifty five and some teams play fifty-seven. Maybe a few. Get a full sixty in, but we're GONNA. have to decide the playoffs. Sixteen teams now based on winning percentage because not everybody. It's sixty games and sixty six days, and now we've got postponements. Not Everybody is going to get to that magic sixty number for total games this year, and that's okay. You can do it based on winning percentage, but let me. Let me, ask you something. Is it fair? To accuse the Marlins of what basically everyone is now accusing them of I think it is and here's why. Well. Let's let's just point out that this is hung on. It's not hung on a bunch of tweets John. Hold on. No positive test since last Friday, correct, not one. Among any of the other twenty nine clubs, just the MARLINS. Mace common sense would suggest that means the MARLINS. Did something stupid. Now it's not for sure could. Could it have been a clubhouse guy who lives in Miami travels with the team. Had it was on the plane gave it to all of them sure. But there are rumor after room after room, including one from Bob Nightingale very reputable USA Today reporter that says the overwhelming trend is that the marlins players went out in Atlanta before they went to Philadelphia. They went out as a group. And they picked this up someplace. Where I to be careful with this John only because Bob. Nightingale didn't tweet it. It somebody else who tweeted what? They heard Bob. Nightingale say, but Bob has not tweeted this. Okay, so bob was on the sky show and this guy just just basically. Here's what Bob just said on the show. Yeah, but but if you just google. MARLINS ATLANTA. You'll read everything that's out there and it is. To me, it is staggering that one team if they did, this would put the other twenty nine teams at risk like this. You know especially after that women's soccer team made the mistake last month. Well, wait a minute. Let me ask you why. Why is what? The marlins did different than what Lou Williams did? Because Lou, Williams is one guy they went out eleven or two and Lou Williams is quarantined they that you can well. He is now but nobody would have known that. He went to that place unless Jack Harlow. Hadn't tagged them in a in an instagram post. I'm here in the NBA. Security was kind of. Oh. They knew Louis going out. Maybe maybe I'm not I'm not harbors. Which I think Jack Harlow had the proof. If you don't want, but you can't say the MARLINS are is there? Can you see the difference between one player going to a Strip club and eleven or twelve guys going out on the town together? It's more people right, but they're still going out on the town and more contact and contact. It's more it multiplies the risk. Yeah, if if in fact they did and by the way they've got a very young team, not expected to contend no big stars on that team. Probably viewing this as having little to lose, maybe they did go out. Maybe maybe they went out and partied, and they all came back with this thing. Or maybe one guy we still don't know the answer this. Maybe a couple of guys did and it spread to everybody else. 'cause remember four guys tested positive I next thing you know there are seventeen guys. Testing positive for coronavirus could be that a couple of guys went out spread. It ever could be. Everybody went out. Spread it to everybody I mean you know in in the end what they did in the in the MLS is they just said. Nashville thanks for playing right, not gonNA work out with you guys too many positive tests. There was a team that basically took themselves out of the tournament, because eleven of them went out and they all got it. which is what I think, the Marlins may have done here. Yeah, yeah, they did that if it can be determined that the Marlins went out on the town. To a bar. Or a club to have a good time and they caught it. If I'm rob Manfred I say you know what you guys don't get it. We're all in this together. We're GONNA. Play with twenty, nine, hundred thirty. Every game scheduled Bu- against the Marlins is now a win. It's a forfeit and maize. You can use those games. Damn I wish. We were in the east. You can use those games to a makeup other games. Sure sure because you're GONNA you as you've talked about a lot, you're jamming sixty six. Sixty and sixty six days now this would buy you a little wiggle room. But. Let's wait and see what comes out, but it s. they did something. These marlins did something caught by. No means is baseball. I mean I've heard people go on. ESPN all data to baseball zero percent it's it's never going on there. They got up. Disagree right now. Totally disagree I. Think we're going right through the playoffs. And I think one right through the plan I think unique cap, the marlins and basically cut out the problem that way. Yeah, and by the way the other thing baseball needs to do, and they may have done this already, but they should not be testing every other day. They should be testing every. The MARLINS announced today that they're obviously moving to a daily testing schedule, but you don't miss the Marco you think everybody should be tested every. Mar. the Marlins, are you know? They're not competitive that Derek jeeter traces. Sell this crap that he doesn't need any star players. He Trades Christian Yelich Giancarlo, stanton for a bag of beans. They don't give a crap about winning. They don't give a crap about the other teams. If Major League baseball came out to. If it turns out, they went out to a club and I realize I'm speculating. And if I am, I'll take it back, but if they went out to a club. If they went out into it. If if you're wrong, you will take it back. No, no because. There is no, it's. You're eating a hypothetical I am, but it's A. It's an informed hypothetical. It's being it's out there. And if again, ask yourself this mace. Twenty nine teams. Zero Positive Bryce zero. Will you know how Ireland's eighteen positive tests? You know how I feel about it. Anybody that goes out from any of these sports whether it's a bubble or not. And picks, this up is selfish. And irresponsible everybody is they're only going to be as strong as their weakest link, and if the marlins happened to be the weakest link if they can't keep themselves from partying again hypothetically. then. I see no reason why. Here's what I don't understand John. You've got actually will hold this well this because we and we gotta get to the scoop, but we got the scoop coming up next and Gonzales is coming up to. We'll keep. We'll keep an eye on this Marlin story if they got this as a result of all going out and partying, they don't get it and I wouldn't have any sympathy for whatever the baseball commissioner death's doom. Shut down. The scoop is coming up next all the stuff. We haven't talked about yet. Mason Ireland seven ten ESPN.

About what Carson Wentz is not listed among the top one hundred. NFL players according to the NFL network and I said okay. And then he goes on Carson Wentz is not in their Josh Allen Kyla Maria okay. Has Anybody given an explanation on this. The players voted on this mclovin. So if you have a problem, we should have a problem with the players in his their likability problem in not that that should factor in, but. I've. No idea. I guess. People say that the NFL never top one hundred often has a lot of weird things on because of the voting system. It's not that comprehensive like the all-star voter. Never really when players vote is that usually at accurate portrayal? Probably not, but this is different because you can't convince me, Jimmy Garoppolo's better than Carson Wentz you can't convince me. Josh Allen is better than Carson Wentz. Cuyler Murray is not better than Carson Wentz, but he might turn out to be. Color Murray by all accounts exceeded expectations last year in Arizona, and now you give deandre Hopkins. He's still have Larry Fitzgerald all right. You got a chance to do some pretty interesting things there, but Carson wentz is still among the okay, if he's the eighth, his odds of the eighth best to win the MVP this year. By, last look according to write. The Vegas, odds now are there. All those are all quarterback goes. Jackson Wilson Shawn Watson Tom. Brady drew brees Dak.. Cuyler Moore and Carson tied at eighth. Okay. That makes sense because he's the cowboy's quarterback anything. They're gonNA try and. Yeah, but DOC is put up good numbers. Carson Wentz I think you know. He had that moment where he was going to be. The MVP decided to Tuck the ball and run against the rams, and a season was over. He was going to win the MVP. And maybe he would have led them to the super. Bowl win against the Patriots. But the fact that Nick foles did it almost like. It happens so quickly in the NFL where you're there, and then you're gone. Because somebody else comes in and then they'll so you got new quarterbacks. You Got Joe Borough in there now. I got Trevor Lawrence coming in next year Justin field coming in next year. It just happened so quickly where we're waiting for that next guy and Carson Wentz. He was up on the pedestal for a little while, but not as long as you would think. Great Story and then prove that he was a legitimate quarterback, got paid and had a respectable year last year, but I'm surprised that Jimmy Garoppolo is that high Jimmy Garoppolo should not be on the list. Certainly not in the top fifty players. And I Garoppolo is what in the mid forties, there of top players that I'm really surprised at that we apple grapple feels Kinda like we're. Jared Goff was a year and half year. His team gets Super Bowl your remember. They're scoring like crazy. That Rams, team and everyone golf may have been propped up by the team around him. He was very good that season in offense and defense, great and Kyle. Grapple Asher same thing, good offense, great defense! But I know it's these lists, and if I'm Carson Wentz, use it to your advantage. Got A chip on your shoulder. Great. Go out there and prove everybody wrong. Eight seven seven three DP show email address tps Dan Patrick dot com. Do you have a poll question, mclovin? Yeah, we went back to our one. We were talking about which quarterback would you want to build a team around? And all these of mid level? Guys Jared Goff Jimmy Garoppolo Dak Prescott or Carson wet. Who Do you think is leading the poll? Well it's either once or back. It's actually wentz one Jimmy. G. Somehow is second. He didn't make the Super, Bowl. He's had some I so did Soda Golf. Yeah they buy those guys both monster contracts as I recall. What's the difference here between Jared Goff in Jimmy Garoppolo? They both on farther than back. Yeah. DAK plays every game. Yeah, it's. He doesn't play well, every game. But. He played every game day out. Here's some numbers you. You know, Ethan. WHO's our stance? Guy Graduated from Harvard. And he has the day off today and he just sent this in. Dak Prescott has ninety seven touchdown passes thirty six interceptions. Carson Wentz says ninety seven touchdown passes thirty five interceptions. Are they really that different. It feels like Carson has shown us a higher side. has but that doesn't mean you know. Jack is not going to do that this year with all the weapons. They have there, but I don't get caught up in these lists. I guess it. Let's say there was the top fifteen sportscasters or radio host then I would probably get caught up in it if I was down the list. But if I'm a quarterback. Just like you know Cam Newton. Just use it to your advantage. Got A chip on your shoulder. Glennon proven wrong. Dan. Orlovsky of the mothership former NFL quarterback. Upset that Wentz not in the top one hundred Orlovsky, tweets me confused in two thousand seventeen number three top one hundred players now not in the top one hundred people need their Dang. Checked. 2017 wentz sixty percent completion thirty three touchdowns seven interceptions. Two, hundred and fifty three yards per game, twenty, one, thousand, nine hundred sixty four percent completion, four thousand passing yards, twenty seven touchdowns, seven interceptions threw for two hundred and fifty two yards. And Twenty nineteen as Orlovsky points out was done with way less help around him. Yeah Carson Wentz had quietly had a very good year. And that was an and they won the division. Now Given, the redskins aren't any good. The giants are rebuilding, and you had Philadelphia banged up and down still didn't win the division, so something should be said. There has to be accountability for that with Carson Wentz. Carson Wentz not in the top one hundred. I don't agree. Here's another thing to keep an eye on. The NFL players names that you're familiar with who are opting out of playing this season. And the Patriots are getting hurt here marcus cannon and Dante hightower. Are Not going to play this year. The chiefs, offensive lineman. Laurent Duvenage Tardif. Who is a doctor says that he is going to continue to do what he's doing and help to. Help people fight the corona virus. Treat them, and he's not gonNA play Eddie Goldman for the bears, just got paid like a four year forty million dollar deal, not a big name guy, but a talented player. He just announced that he's not gonNA play this year. Did you see where the Vikings infection control officer? Tested. I shouldn't laugh, but so why are you laughing I? Don't why I'm laughing I. Just found it funny. Nobody knows more about this than I do. The Vikings announced Monday that Eric sugarman. The team's head athletic director. Trainer and infection control officer tested positive for grown. There would be irony in that right mclovin. That that would be ironic, typical sugarman. Guys younger man. Now Hope. He's okay. After I laughed. It's fair to say that. Many people in sports industry view the world through the football colored glasses. The view of other sports is maybe a fun site activity to the main event which happens in the fall. Or you're watching other sports to see what impact they might have on football and I think football's going to be monitoring. What's happening with the Marlins just to win if they're when or if there's an outbreak how you treat that? And you had four more players from the marlins roster, so I believe that's eighteen members of the franchise, the organization you have tested positive so far. And the non bubble sports that they face an uphill battle fighting the virus in the early news in great for the NFL, they try to open camps and like every sport. They've had a number of positive tests yesterday. The Vikings said trainer. Tested positive. So that's where we are the sheer number of players on our football team, and the sizable staff present enormous challenge here coming up and the logistics of the NBA style bubble would have been really difficult to pull off. You just can't imagine a whole football team a world descending into one city, or you could have maybe a couple of bubbles like the NHL has. The NFL, trying to figure it out, and hopefully they can learn from what they're seeing with major league baseball as we move forward. Jason Lockenfora, the information guy for CBS. He said that he was talking to a couple of anonymous sources. And these are all people in the. Executives one AFC team executive, said the NFL better be looking at an eight game schedule. You also had another high ranking team official. Were playing sixteen games in this question mark really question mark. Then he goes on to say. This is why some GM's I've talked to believe. Ten or twelve games would be the Max. This is why another GM recently caught himself talking about when the season starts and quickly changed it to if. There's degree of difficulty. We knew this going in and I think. These leagues are listening and watching other leagues to see what they're doing and how they're doing, and by all accounts looks like the NBA has done it right, and we're going to have basketball coming up in a couple of days, college football to me is going to have a real difficult time just with the cheer number of players and trying to control them. and. You have colleges coaches. They're changing their schedule. Like. CAN WE MOVE UP A game? Can we move back again? But I think just trying to keep everybody safe here in college. Atmosphere is going to be difficult. Of You know because you can say to a professional hey. You got to be smart with where you go what you do when you leave the facility with college kids good luck with that and I. think that you know that's where college football going to have a real difficult time. With any fluidity in this season, it just feels like there's going to be situations where games are postponed. canceled. Can you move them back? If you start to season later. Does that help? I don't know if it helps but. I. Don't look at this doom and gloom because we've gotten farther than I thought we were going to. I didn't think we're going to have an NBA season. I thought that the NFL season would be push-back. I Thought College football was in serious jeopardy I didn't know if baseball would ever get their act together now. That's not to say that just because you start. You'RE GONNA finish. Because I have serious doubts about baseball finishing and I have doubts about college football, and the NFL being able to finish. Hockey seems like they got it. Under wraps, there feels like they got a pretty good handle here and the NBA feels like they got a pretty good handle. Once you get in the bubble, you stay in the Bible and they monitor you then. It feels like the NBA should be able to get this started and you know. Hopefully to completion here that you get a championship here, this is why it's so important for these leaks the reason why they're going through all these. Loopholes is they're. Not even loopholes. They're trying to overcome. These hurdles is there's so much money in the postseason. Everybody wants to get to the postseason. Because that's where your money is. Twice Baseball added six more teams. Six teams I'm GonNa make up a little bit of revenue here. I don't know this could be the your college. Football could say we're going to do a sixteen team playoff, and no one's GonNa Complain. Now I know you have a contract with the mothership, but. That's where you could make even more money in the postseason. Football adding more playoff teams, you gotta get to the playoffs hockey. The same way get to the playoffs baseball. Get to the postseason. They don't care about this sixty games. They care about all of those playoff games. That is the big key here. The phillies are reporting to their ballpark today in small groups to submit saliva samples before departing for New York tomorrow. Joe Girardi toll the MLB network yesterd- moments ago. Team doesn't have access to the clubhouse at the ballpark today. So they have a field trip to their ballpark to submit saliva samples before departing for New York tomorrow. Because the Yankees rated come there for a couple of games now they're going to New York. But nobody has tested positive yet with the phillies right now. It's just been the Florida marlins. Eight seven seven three DP show email address tps, Dan, Patrick Dot Com. It's a pretty good story there, with Alex Smith and the Redskins. And if you got to see the I, don't think it was a thirty for thirty. It might have been an east sixty story that was done on Alex Smith. It was really well done. It's well done because of the access. They Alex Smith was giving ESPN and letting you in on exactly what he was going through and I think he's up to maybe seventeen surgeries. To try to come back. From that devastating knee injury, and when you have these injuries in, they're worried. Sometimes there's artery damage or the. You know that you could have your leg amputated. But Alex Smith. He hasn't been cleared to play by the REDSKINS doctors. He's on the physically unable to perform list, but if Alex Smith is healthy, then he's your best quarterback there. But I. Don't know Alex Smith plays for the Redskin. They might say to him Hey Alex. We're going to settle your contract here and then if you WANNA, try to play somewhere else. Then you have our stamp of approval, but. He's almost back. I think. His doctor cleared him to start working out. But not to be able to actually practice with Washington yaupon. That's exactly right. My Ron. Rivera said to Alex Smith has passed part of his physicals, but they still have two of the football portion the physicals. They're therefore. He's on the PUP list right now. If you are put on the pup list before the camp starts, they could take you off it if you are put on it like in the middle of training camp, you're kind of on it for the season, so we would give them the option of bringing him onto the active roster almost any point. Yeah it's a good story, and you can't help, but root for him, you know. He was there in Kansas City, and then they brought in, mahomes he was in San, Francisco then they brought in Catholic here. He is in Washington. He gets injured now. They bring into Lane Haskins. They, move on. They move on quickly. Maybe he gets an opportunity, but I think. Team doctors are probably GONNA have. A hard time. San, let's let's try to Alex. Smith back out there even if he's cleared to play. I just I, don't know if he plays another game certainly for Washington Yanic Club. What a weird career that you just! so He's number one Aaron Rodgers goes at the end of the first round. And then he goes Sanford he's. He is a very good quarterback. He's not great, but he's a very good quarterback when healthy he wins. His winning percentage is pretty impressive. I think it's probably like seventy five wins and forty five losses, something like that, but he's never been good enough to be better than the guy behind him or the the guy that they brought him and. I don't I don't think he's going to be playing football. But the fact that he's even this close is really amazing. I had a hard time watching this. And having gone through six knee surgeries, it paled in comparison to what this poor man went through. And that it was in graphic detail. They showed you what he was going through. And wasn't it? lattimore this South Carolina. Back Marcus lattimore that I think they were worried when he got hurt that. You know you risk amputation depending on the severity Teddy Bridgewater when he got hurt. and. Blood vessels, and all the things that could go wrong in Alex Smith had just about everything you could possibly have. And it's tough to watch, but if you WANNA see you know somebody overcoming. An injury in the perseverance. Alex Smith, show. He showed me far more in that than he ever did on a football field, and he did some great things on a Football Field Yarmuk love. When he threw me in the Super Bowl. Sad, it was very catchable ball even when he was, that was in Minnesota, and remember I've always called him. And he got traded that day when he was there with us. In Minnesota, and I've always referred to as a gay manager and I was watching pardon the interruption last night Michael Wilbon said you know people. Call Him Alex Smith Gay Manager. I call him a game a manager and I mean that in a positive way because if you put him in a different era. Bart Star or he's Bob Greasy? He's a guy who in quarterbacks used to games. Troy Aikman was a game manager. Now it's just hey, let's just throw the football, but these guys. You know Johnny United's managed football game. and. That's the compliment that he took. He was taking what you were giving him and then try to take even more, and he could beat you with his legs. He was really a good quarterback, not great but good, but he knew how to. It's the difference. Greg Maddux pitches. Other guys throw. What I was talking about without with, and I meant this with a full complement of he manages a football game. Start to finish how to win again, Russell. Wilson does this. He manages a game. All right we'll take a break more phone calls coming up here. It's twenty one twenty two after the hour.

On which a young quarterback would you start with? We could get into what your? What's your reaction right now? We'll. LBC's finish was what I was GONNA say. In the beginning of the show. It was what now where the BBC's season fetish okay. Yeah you can do that if you want. What do you think? I. I'm trying to be positive. I'd like to see what happens over the next week here with the Marlins and any any other teams. That they came in contact with I. Just like this is a hiccup. I don't I don't know if it's sort of a prediction premonition of what's going to happen with other teams. We're going to have positive tests I get that, but when you have a team that might not be responsible in the moment when you have positive tests. Here's something to keep an eye on. Baseball source said that to me yesterday. Because what happens when they're. Your team is not in the playoff race. Let's say we get too late. August early, September in your team is whatever a twenty and. Twenty eight. And you still have games left. HOW DILIGENT CONSCIOUS THEY GOING TO BE! You know when they may be like there's if you know we test positive for the season gets shut down or are season. Get shut down. I think you might be a little more lax. These you might see that with some of these teams and that's going to be. It start to finish for everybody. Got To be fair to everybody involved in it even if you're not going to be a playoff team, I mentioned. Alex, Smith, career, record actually it's ninety, four, sixty, six and one, which is very good, but since twenty eleven seventy, five, thirty, five and one. And the only quarterback, who had a better winning percentage since twenty eleven. peyton manning, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. Pretty impressive, they're almost sounds like A. Stat. Dad of the Day. Here comes that. What stat of! I still think these Patriot players who decided they're not going to play this year. You've you've lost a couple starters here. It's a it's a big loss. I'm surprised that this isn't garnering more headlines. That players are opting out of playing the entire season Yarmuth club. That was another poll option. Do you think the Patriots have a winning season? Their win totals about nine nine and a half. You does playing quarterback through I don't. I set a long time ago. I'd never bet against Bill Belichick so I won't. Bet against him. I won't bet against him. They might just eke out. Nine wins. But. I'm. Not Gonna I'm not. GonNa bet against him, but he I mean you've got to replace a cotton and hightower or starters on this, too. And got a quarterbacking situation. That's in a state of flux. You're not sure about your wide receivers. Thank you got a couple of marquee players on defense but But it comes down to handicapping that division because is Miami going to be a threat this year? is going to be starting for this team. Is. Buffalo able to build on what they did last year with Josh Allen, and it comes down to Josh, Allen. Because I know they got. That's good team. That's a good team I just. I'm not sure about him. And then you got the jets. The jets somehow won seven games last year. Can't imagine that that would happen this year, but. GM came out and said we're not tanking this year. Well who does come out and say they're tanking like? Wouldn't that be the news if if you're mark? Cuban is the only guy think on record. Who any came on her show to say that they were tanking. In, he lit up by the NBA Home Office doing it. And he said I'm just being honest here. All Right? A couple of phone calls here. Let's see gave Texas Hi Gabe. What's on your mind today? How you doing Dan Happy Tuesday. A couple of things on that poll question on the four. Pick one I guess. I'M GONNA pick. My my home state Guy Dak, but only because they have one of those Not Not big on any of those guys. Just the last few days I've been wearing some astros gears of getting ready for the baseball season restart and I'm getting so much. Hey, you know like. When I go golf and I wear a hat and the Oh cheaters you know and stuff like that I'm getting everywhere. It's it's it's a little. It's a little much. I mean considering that the other teams that have gotten busted cheating lots years, so are you. Are you going to stick with being in an astros fan? Yeah, that I have to I mean I grew up with you know I think I am I mean? If? They got caught again or something like that is then maybe I might rethink that, but I gonNA stick with my team. Well you'RE GONNA. Get grief, but it could be worse. You could be on the Astros and get hit by a pitcher to. Juno who the manager do you know who the manager? The Astros is gay. The. Baker right well done you know, stay on hold gay, but we're going to get your address from Marvin. We'll get that. We'll send you out. A couple of t-shirts there fritzy.

Somebody guests there like two in one. Three in one three one, but I want to know. Why did we go out for the season two? It's. Well, I don't know I don't know who said that. he was out for the season was at a reporter. Someone was the little too quick to the Yes mclovin can not name last year's manager for the Astros off the top of his head under pressure. Last year's manager of the Al.. I hate being put on the spotlight. Well when you don't know the answer, but I know that's like I. I don't know why it's escaping me for somebody's. Yes now we don't have break. We got time to know where you're all right. I'm picturing the face of have it because I know he got a lot of grief with the whole thing. Yeah, he got accused of cheating to win a world series. It was in grief he. got fired for cheating. Did Jam Gotten GM got fired? I'M NOT GONNA ask you to name the GM for the of your team. And once again astro's gear. The rest of this year entire year. Yeah I'm thinking. I'M NOT GONNA. Cheat in Google I know. It'll come to me as I. Just I can't think of it the second. Yeah, well, clock is ticking time. I hate this. Terrible I can't think of. But. It's your team I know that's just or is it to? He was your team in a everything about the eighty six. Can you name? You should be on a name? Three players on the current teams that I won't ask you that. I got to get the Astros manager before the show guy got fired for being a part of cheating scandal. You Look Frank. You gave me his phone number so I could reach out to him. You tried to book him for a month by. Let's look it up on my phone. I don't come to this so. Let me go to Keith in Virginia. Hey Welcome to the program. Hey Dan first time long time six one action at a doctor's office right now and discover the skin and say to twenty eight. Thank, you? I wanted to ask you a question I'm longtime dodgers fan, and it's somehow someway. The dodgers don't win the world series, is you? Dr Roberts continued to keep his job and I really appreciate I liked morale. Did you guys do during this time and I really appreciate this show every single day and great job. Thank you You were talking about Dave Roberts the dodgers manager. He's GonNa Catch Heat. Even if they get to the world series, they don't win it. He's he's GonNa catch eat, but. I don't know the inner workings there. Of, but it seems like Dave. Roberts is well liked, but with you just spent all that money on. mookie Betts. At some point you're going to say. You, know we. They're a weak link here. Like why are we winning? And by the way remember the the owners were pleading poverty. And then all of a sudden mookie betts gets a four hundred million dollar. They somehow found a way to get money. Yeah. Dan Your dodgers finished in first place in division every year since two thousand, thirteen, ninety two wins, ninety, four, ninety to ninety one hundred four wins, ninety two wins, one hundred six wins last year, and they have two world series losses. mclovin just want to point out at least that guy knew one of the name your.

The dodgers in Houston tonight for the first time since game five of the twenty seventeen world series. Thirteen to twelve ten inning astros win that gave him a three two series lead going back to La Clayton Kershaw blue separate leads of four to nothing in the fourth inning, seven to four in the fifth inning. In that game, the Astros hit five home runs in the last home game of that controversial trash can banging season. and. Of course, there's a whole lot of research indication speculation that the astros knew exactly what Clayton Kershaw was throwing hitting those five home runs off the dodgers pitchers so back in Houston. How long does it take before? Somebody gets thrown out in that game. Even though it's an astros home game. First inning. Maybe they wait a little bit expecting it to be in the first inning. Todd I'd ask you, but. About the. Fourth! It Yeah Yeah. Pulling aren't you kind of curious? If the UMPIRES, let it go. Because it's going to happen in. The UMPIRES may not be on the side of protecting the Astros. But they have to be on the side of protecting players in accordance to their job, they may not like what the Astros did but I don't know if they can plead ignorance with the commissioner and go. Oh, we all the dodgers and Astros. Don't like each other. Is Much as you would. You know the players police the game. That's the empire can tell you hey, don't do that. It'll be up to the players to decide if they're going to do something. Buzz the tower there, but I I wouldn't be shocked if somebody went down tonight. Another New England Patriot opt out, sided not to play the season. Patrick Chung defensive at six players with the Patriots. And what do you have three or four starters here? This is a big deal. Yarmulke love you gotTa tank. Okay, Cam do deal to tell them sorry cam not this year. Well, why bring in Cam dated? No, maybe they didn't know. All these guys are gonNA. Opt out now. They're deciding to tank. Yes, maybe you bring in Cam to look like you're trying, but then tell all your players want you guys just sit out this year comeback next year. This is six players.

Roy Halladay's Perfect Game

"In ten years ago today Roy Halladay made baseball history faces. Twenty seven banners. Who's just a second perfect game ever thrown by a Phillies Pitcher and the twentieth in? Mlb history today. The Athletics Matt. Gelb joins us to remember that historic performance to talk about holidays. Tragic death in a plane crash three years ago and to discuss how he's remembered today selflessness that you talk about reality. He deflected everything the attention good attention that he got and it just all for everybody around from wondering on the athletic. I'm could beat the Davidson. I'm it's Friday. May Twenty ninth and this is the lead felt like something great. And that's not good this. This isn't a story. Be The athlete it stays with you. We'll so matt remind US About Roy Holidays career before he joined the Phillies Roy. Halladay was probably the best if not one of the best pitchers of his generation and the Blue Jays win. They're dating much emotion as we've ever seen him but he was overlooked because he was in Toronto with the Blue Jays and he didn't get a lot of notoriety despite putting up tremendous stats despite winning. Cy Young Awards Roy. Halladay has one hit. The Yankees just witnessed one of the fun is performances of his career. It always fascinated me how he wasn't really talked about as often as he should have been. I mean this guy was really the last sort of type of his kind. I mean you don't see pitchers complete games anymore. Roy Halladay made it a point to complete as many games as he could and really we. We won't ever see a picture like that again. I don't think and what kind of reception did Roy. Halladay have upon arriving in Philly. I mean it was crazy and the camera and the media. They were everywhere. Recording with this guy was doing his first couple of days affiliate uniform now this guy I mean. The phillies really hadn't seen a picture of his tight for a long long time. I mean they're famous for having one of the greatest lefties of all time Steve Carlton they had curt Schilling in his prime in the nineties. But Really Roy Halladay was unlike any pitcher the phillies that required he was in as in his prime and there was just this incredible amount of excitement around him joining the phillies because they had been trying for so long to acquire and they finally got him what the State of the Phillies at this point in two thousand ten when they add this as to their staff I mean the phillies are coming off back to back. World Series appearances. They've never been more popular in the city than they were at that time at the beginning of the twenty ten season. I mean they have popular players like Chase Leeann Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins and they add Roy Halladay to that mix and you know really the expectations were to to be in another world series and Roy. Halladay was given the ball on opening day and he was there to really set the pace for this team. We'll so matt take back to May Twenty ninth twenty ten set. The scene for US Live Stadium here. Miami Florida Josh Johnson. In the Florida Marlins of just taking the field as the phillies are preparing for well. The first thing I remember is that it was game one of the Stanley Cup finals. And the only reason I remember that is because the flyers were playing the blackhawks. And it's a Saturday night. You know it's late. May it wasn't really a great atmosphere. I mean there weren't a lot of fans there two of this series but also game five of this road trip. Let's take a look at Charlie manual. Starting Lot of brought to you by Xfinity. There really wasn't a lot of attention. I don't think in Philadelphia for this phillies game. Well and how did HALLADAY START THE GAME? Was He hot right out of the gate. He wasn't I mean. The first inning might have been one of his stress strenuous innings behind three and two. I mean it wasn't necessarily his best command. But he made the pitches really when he had to the outside Corner Call Strike. I think knew what he was. Just hoping that the fire Mike to Mural. Give him a pass. There's obviously this whole baseball etiquette of not talking about a perfect game while it's going on but to you in your head at least. When did you first start to think? And he could. He could really do this. I think it was around the sixth inning and it was a ball was hitting the whole. So you have Wilson bowed has. Who's just this bench player career bench guy and he has to make a really challenging play to his right and it's challenging because Cameron may is the one you hit. And he's probably the fastest guy in the Marlins at the time shortstop which could be a maven speed deaths. Hurries time to get six three on the put out to but that stuck in my head and just like you just kinda sort of started feeling like this guy might do this thing. What's that moment like? When halladay finally gets the twenty-seven everybody on their feet nowadays is not an amazing play. It really isn't. It is a good play made by Juan. Castro is the third baseman. Who's filling in and the ball? If by Ronny Paulino. Who's a backup catcher? He's pinch hitting and he's not very fast. So this ball takes a hop on the dirt and he does this little turn rose and he gets Paulino by considerable man. It was not a close play at first base toward third. Castro has spins fires the second perfect Game Philadelphia Street. He faces twenty seven. He retires. It was just a perfect play and really was. I hate to use that word. Because it's it's it might be cliche but it just really was. There's something about that played. It is so indelible in everyone's minds Roy twenty seven batters twenty-seven out tell us a little bit about it to say You know we felt like we grew early and about fifth or sixth. I was just following. I can't say enough about so matt. You and our colleague Meghan Montemurro wrote about the unique way that Roy halladay celebrated his achievement afterward. Tell us about that soon. After halladay pitched a perfect game. He wanted to find a way to you. Know thank his teammates and thank people around the phillies and this is not unusual. I mean we've seen guys in the past give out a ring or by a watch or do something special take take guys out for a really nice dinner. But in how his mind he he thought that this transcended that he thought that there were more people to thank than just the people who were on the field within that night. He thought he should thank everybody. Wanted to buy these luxury watches. He's bomb and mercy watches. They were you know a couple of grand apiece and everyone meant the clubhouse staff the video guys the trainers the front office. The doctor the bat boy his family his agent the scout who signed him sports psychologists who helped guide his career. He ended up getting sixty seven of these watches. And not only did he get these watches. He had them personalized with each person's name on the back of the face with the line score from this game. He designed a box that they came in and there is an engraving in the front and it says we do together. Thanks Roy Halladay Royston. I pitched a perfect game. We did it together for some guys. Like rich. Do is pitching coach and someone who was extremely close to him. He wants to wear the watch the watch almost every day and anywheres it because he wants to be reminded of the person that Roy. Halladay was selflessness. That you talk about reality know wasn't he deflected everything the attention of attention that he got any of just all for everybody around Don Lean is affiliate strength and conditioning coordinator who developed a really close bond with Roy Halladay. He made it a point to recognize everybody. That was involved in a moment that was truly his is moment but he wanted to make sure that we were all understood that we would not have happened without all of us participating together in as a team meant so much to us right it. Just it's forever ingrained in our minds and hearts for like that moments that we got. We got the witness. Did you know two out of three guys will experience?

What was the transition to life after baseball? Like Roy Holiday. Well for a lot of these guys it you have to fill this competitive nature that you have and some guys are able to do it better than others. And the way that Roy Halladay did it was sort of immersing himself in the psychology of the game. He had this close bond with Harvey Dorfman. The announced sports psychologists who really helped to rebuild his career in the early two thousands when he struggled and Palley felt like he had to pay it forward he wanted to give back. He wanted to sort of be. Harvey Dorfman was to him. He wanted to be that for other players and so he started taking classes at local colleges. He started volunteering with the phillies as a mental skills coach. He started coaching his son's Baseball teams travel teams He became an assistant coach at at a local high school in clearwater Florida. Where his oldest son? Brayden was a pitcher he was really embracing this life of paying it forward and giving it back and at the same time he started. Show a little his lighter side. He opened a twitter account which we thought was so out of character. The former ACE tweeted a picture of himself taking the mound against a fan whom he struck out. He captioned the tweet quote. I recorded my first strikeout since retirement time for a comeback. She has a better swing than a Rod. No steroids and quote but it turns out. You know he's pretty funny a lot of us all some of it behind the scenes he did. Love to joke was a great prankster. But you know the the average person didn't get to see that until Roy. Halladay opened a twitter account After retiring and it was pretty funny and what role did flying in his life. I mean he was an avid pilot. HIS FATHER. Roy was a pilot. This is flying is something that always fascinated him. I can recall numerous times when when before drones were a thing before they were cool. Ray Halladay had a lot of money to spend and he would by the biggest fanciest cools drones. You've ever seen and I'm talking about twenty ten. Twenty eleven he would fly around the clubhouse he wants had one of the club's give him Ryan Howard's paycheck the attached to the drone any fluid over to Ryan Howard's locker and dropped off the paycheck that way and everyone kind of thought that was awesome but flying was one of the ways that he sort of replaced these competitive juices so matt walk us through what happened in November twenty Seventeen Roy. Halladay had this this plane. It was almost like a trick plane. It was a small plane that he liked to fly and honestly he parked right near his house in Florida and he was able to. Kinda get up and get down and he would take his sons up there. He would take his sons friends up their teammates and he loved to fly and he gotten a lot of hours flying but On this day he took his plane up and this is in a residential area. I mean this was not this was not in a secluded spot where he was doing this flying and they describe in radic flight path and to sort of flying close to the water And then doing these tricks and being upside down and really the descriptions were that of over neurotic. Pilot this new video obtained by TMZ. Sports shows former baseball star. Roy Halladay flying his plane just moments before he fatally crashed into the ocean. Who really there was this feeling that he had so much left to give to this game. He had found this interest and he had taken a job with the phillies a fulltime job. He put his cell phone number on the door and invited any player to call him if they needed to talk. It's sad because he did have more to give back to this game you know. There was a toxicology report in the NTSB INVESTIGATION. That that really revealed that he. He was truly reckless. When flying this plane and he had allowed drugs in his system. He was abusing painkillers. He was abusing other drugs. He had a lot of problems. He had a lot of demons that he wasn't able to escape and new in the years since his death. We have come to learn a lot more about these struggles. That Roy Halladay had well. There is just this outpouring of grief when he died not just in Toronto or in Philly but but really throughout the baseball community. And I think we all remember when when the phillies and the Blue Jays memorialized him and his wife Brandy gave one of the more emotional speeches are eulogies that we've ever seen. I didn't know how big my heart was until I felt the amount of hurt in it with him with all my heart that we can still live in a way that will honor him and make him proud somehow live up to that impossibly high standard. What was it about? Doc that everyone everyone felt this immense sense of loss. You know I think what it was. Is that this man. He was the epitome of perfect. He was the definition of an ace. You just thought he was infallible. And he wasn't because no one is and I do think that that is something that Brandy holiday. His his widow has tried to stress in the years since that. Everybody struggles with something and in the end. It's hard to to grapple with now because royalities legacy is that he was the guy that you wanted with the ball in a game seven but in reality he he struggled in his own mind to be that guy. He didn't think that he had done enough to be that guy. He didn't think he was good enough. And it's just. It's just hard to to know that there weren't enough people around Him who knew this that he had these struggles or there weren't enough people around him to tell him that he was doing enough on finally Matt. We go back to the perfect game that we are remembering today and you you said earlier that you know in many ways Roy Halladay. The man was clearly flawed. But Roy Halladay. The player was was perfect. You know he pitches his game. He goes on to pitch a no hitter in the playoffs when you think of his legacy what role does that perfection do those no hitters play in in the legend of Roy Halladay. Ooh It really did provide you know the apex of his career. I'm glad that had happened when it did with the phillies and that a lot of us were able to see it. You know. It's a shame you never picture world series and it's a shame. He only pitched a handful of postseason games. But it's cool that we got those those moments. It's really cool. We got those moments in one of the one of his. Generation's best pitchers gave us some of those signature moments. And I think that's why there's such an attachment to that perfect game matt.

HR 4: Will there be revenge?

"You know what I have to confess the Andy. I have no idea what the song is about. This. About the confederate flag and bring it back, slavery I wouldn't know. Sound. Good that you know. About that is a really dark interpretation Elsie of back in black. The. Nation you just gave. That is a I'm just saying I have no idea what the SOS about. It's like. Yeah. I'll be honest I've been hearing the song since I was like seven or eight years old. I couldn't tell you what half the lyrics are. I can't understand Brian Johnson like Brian Johnson. Intelligible singer I have no other than the chorus. I have no idea what the Hell is saying I've heard the song girl I don't know forty years or whatever. Look Louis. None none and it's so funny because there's so many classic songs like that I remember when I finally realized what George Michael was singing with faith. You know I didn't know he was saying before. This river becomes an ocean. Our be seeing a slip slip sliver going in motion. I'm sitting there and someone said. What do you say and I was like slips sliver. Go in motion. That's not the worst of the songs like. Rhythm. Goes. I have no idea where this is back black, I'm. Not a clue I never actually looked them up. I have no idea what they're talking about. Like I can understand the lyrics and you shook me all night long, but I can understand lyrics in for those about to rock. We salute you I have no idea what he's being sung and back in black care. What's being Sung WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA? Joking. Joking here what's going all of these lyrics? Oh hold on. Up Clear. You Ready. Are you ready? A little concerned. Back in black I hit the sack. I've been too long. I'm glad to be back. Yes, aglet, loose from the news. That's kept me hanging about. Looking at the Sky I'm a stop right there. Okay. I'm now uncomfortable. Ok Tedi we go. On this. What is? On this song according to Wikipedia. Hold Up. This is breaking news. Okay lyrics to back in black are controversial. Leading right now. According to wikipedia interview that Brian. Johnson! WHO IF PEOPLE KNOW ACDC? They'll know Brian Johnson. actually replaced their original singer. Bon Scott and the funny thing is they sound exactly the same? And this was him attempting to fill in no shoes and Brian Johnson said basically like all right the such big shoes to fill. Who Cares so? He just put out like Mumbo jumbo lyrics. According to literally Mumbo jumbo nine lives, cats is abusing every one of them in running wild like basically, he was just saying crown. So, maybe not for him, noose especially tunes like nineteen eighty and you know we really didn't give enough thought from Australia. They are from Australia what does this mean? He doesn't know anything about a confederate flag or stuff like that. You know anything about global history. I Don't use Austrailia. Had you heard the origines? needed. It does not sound like Brian Johnson was attempting to make any statement at all with the lyrics like it sounds like he was actually literally just putting out whatever the hell popcorn was mind stream of consciousness, but As you, said L Z anytime news comes up. I'm not. News from the news. I mean maybe he just felt like what was constricting him like he felt like he was constricted, and he's let loose from something that felt like was metaphorically around his neck, but yes, upon retrospect. Could have gone with a different set of what I WANNA see. The dodgers let loose tonight. I, WanNa, see the. luth tonight. I WANNA see. Not One not two not three. Now I WANNA see five players get hit. Hit. Hit Not really dangerous. I don't want anything dangerous. Comfortable going to sleep tonight I. Want anyone being comfortable falling asleep tonight after this game I. Want people to be uncomfortable, not being able to find a proper place rest their bodies, because it's too sore getting hit with a ninety five mph fastball. That's what I would like to see and every single time they get hit i. want someone in the back to go cheetahs. seaters. Here's to give you top. I'm GonNa give you four Astros. You tell me of these four who should take number one priority in terms of getting plunked. Alex Bregman. To everybody's favourite little guy until turned out the cheating, every was exposed. Carlos Correa. Are George Springer the MVP of this tainted cheated series. Or number one. vay number one out to lay. Out Too vague because he tried to play us for foods dog. Yes, he did. He Made A. Stories about a tattoo and his wife and he feeds shy. Please take off my shirt. and. And then to giggle. GIGGLE. Yes I hear it I. Just want to hear them. Now I'm pretty sure if we were face to face and be be BIA. I'm pretty sure about that. How little man he's a wee man! He knows he's a short man. Don't get it twisted and. Are the most dangerous. The most dangerous 'cause you gotta get down real voting. Get Him. And on top of that, they tend to have like a lot more like. The Lowest Cinder grabby makes it harder to knock him out. So adly fighting short people don't. I don't like wrestling sure people. Polian complex you never know. Be! Wealthier. That's not a good look, but so he's first because he tried to play. And then George Springer because he got an MVP out. which is like truck or something or car or something like that? You know he he probably knows. Do indeed even donated charity Pratt kept it. Does line is well man to. Go the whole. Monte right if you'RE GONNA cheat. ill-gotten. But I'm going to need on that list. I'm a needs and spicer AJ hinch I'm I need some space for him? Because Cuba, he tried to play from pools. He tried to make it sound like he was a victim. In all of this and that he tried to stop it, but. Didn't work couldn't call anybody. His mouth didn't work couldn't say stop, and he's going to potential to convince us that he was so upset about it that end up benefiting from it, and he hates himself so much, but he's not going to give you the rain back. Come on man. Fortunately I. Don't think he's GonNa. Be In the stadium to actually plunk him I. Don't may anywhere around the. No. No I don't need you to stadium. No, no, no I'm sending I'm going to see them at the Geek squad. We're GONNA. Come, will you get an ties and yeah, sweet by a me, your beaming? We're not gonNA. Just like you're not going to be in the stadium. When rain's coming out in case, you know you one last year, no one's really in the stadium and Blah. Blah Blah just like going to be like the situation. You may not be the stadium for the Beamy, but we're going to fed ex until you don't worry this comment. Dry By beating a like it, so then number four. The owner. He deserves. No, he deserves A. Yes he does. Yes, he does. He deserves it. He deserves he deserves an ribs because he got him play tomorrow anyway, so yeah, so he hurt be her for five. And then the fifth person lives and this one's going to hurt lodge, because you know, I love this dude and that has to be. Justin a burland. Because? He's he wrote up and started making jokes about it in front of other baseball players. That, yeah, he made it showcase about it. Go over well. None No blood. Nope, and this hurts because I love I love them just the Burland wanting to be a dodger. I didn't know he had that in his personality. Though I didn't know he had that in this personality, the kind of guy who can cheap gain benefit from cheating the game get busted for cheating a game, and when you have an opportunity to speak to some of the people who were victims of his Chidi, you decide to make a joke expense like Ha. HA, ha! Jokes on you! Know I! Want him beam to. Remembering correctly hasn't Verleger to been high and mighty in the past about things in terms of like the integrity of the game, the honor of the game like Verlaine has spoken out before in ways that make him now look really hypocritical like I mean just a true hypocrite with this stuff. Yes! Yes, which is why? It was so disappointing because he added so willing to speak out on issues, and you're like going. Yeah, this guy. He's not fearless yet is upstanding guy. Yeah, yeah, yeah, and then this comes out. Go Out of Matt only. Did you know they were Chidi? Now only did not say anything to stop them. From CD. But then you had an opportunity to offer an apology for the Chidi. You instead made a joke. At the players expense. Could scene. That's week and I. Don't so now questioning all the other. Against because I realized that. This isn't just simply a lapse in judgement. That was a calculated decision. To like. Make light of the situation that digestive vermander from Detroit would have never made lighters, the Justin Bergman and there was in Detroit would have gone off, and said some of the things that cody. Belhadj said, but the Justin Berlin. They ended up in Houston. He wants to champion. Seem like it's not a big deal. All of sudden so now you like a front runner to me and I just love her and. Actually make. Jessica abandoned number two. I just moved up ahead of George. Springer because now talk more. Anger now is good news for George. George. And give that sucker waiting to charity by the way George. I know you still got it. Chuck away. Man Probably does probably get. That thing is probably just been sitting in his garage. Collecting dust done absolutely nothing probably never even sat in that truck with truck, probably got delivered to his house, had been put in the garage, and he has not done a damn thing with. Eight a need, the truck and be. He knows that trump is a fraud. He knows if he draw around yet if he drives around in that truck that entire time he's on the road. It's a reminder of what a fraud here's. What a fraud! That team were on fraud that organization is. Now here's the thing though Elsie like the dodgers. Try to make up some ground because they're opening weekend. Split against the giants was disappointing so on one hand you have to think about being measured with exacting justice and you know. Would we lose certain players? CAN WE AFFORD TO LOSE THEM? You know how how should we ration this out these sensible in sixty games season. But on the flip side might be you know what? Yolo? Because season may not finish anyway the rate. We're going right now. With this outbreak. There's now seventeen marlins. Seventeen marlins have tested positive for COVID. We are one weekend into baseball. That being said that being the case you might want to just get all that revenge out of the way now because there may not be a season to finish. Get it in, but you know what get it in this season. Get it in next season to. You need to get it in now because we don't know, there will be a next season like just week. Everything is so up in the air right now. You never know the viability of all sports moving forward until we have a vaccine and you don't WanNa. Wait that long to get your revenge I agree Alsi. We get it now. You get while you know you can have it. You don't even know that you'll get the opportunity to do it at your own stadium in September. When the Astros come back need to get this thing now. You gotta get it out of the way now. Get it out of the way now and then get it out of the way next season season up. After that like because e damage to the Chidi. Isn't just about a season. It's a legacy crippling event. It hurts Kershaw's legacy. It hurt Dave Roberts magazine and hurts the legacy of this franchise that is still looking to get its first chip since the eighties, so there's Michael. Jackson was thinking he was bad. That's fucking. World series so I'm. going. Why should we just think one game? One beaming makes up for the damage. The damage is a long term damage. Because when you win a championship, it puts you in a different stratosphere. And especially baseball folklore, and that was taken from us so every single time we pay them. We should remind them of what they done to us. What they did to the game what they did to themselves. You Got Houston fans running around trying to act right this champions Jano Yang no real champions. You wait not. You know and faking it and you need to stop it. We're GONNA. We're GONNA talk about what may lie had this two game series dodgers versus Astros in Houston and also the viability of the season itself with former major league. All Star Bret Boone, he's coming up next. Here Andy. You drink DECAF coffee. No. It's a waste of time. I'm just trying to check this kind of man. You're just making sure we're on the same page I do not drink DECAF coffee ever. Just feels like a waste of time. If I'm going to be drinking coffee I, want the benefits. If I'm going to decaff. It's usually decaffeinated tea like something. SORTA just the unwind whatever but other than that. No I'm always going gap. What about you can it? What about you? Oh, of course I'm not drinking and I'm the one who brought the question and. Hauling Beer. I, don't drink non alcoholic beer I. don't drink. I don't smoke unless they had a certain number of THC. Need to get a certain number. Allahu, nothing, then they will have the full benefits of doing it. I don't get it like I. Don't drink I. don't drink gatorade with half. The sugar leads gatorade zero. Whatever that is. If I'm GONNA do it. I'm GONNA do it. Now! You've never struck Mailsi as a man who likes to have his time wasted, or who put up with the idea this time being wasted and decaffeinated coffee that is wasted time ultimate like I like the taste of coffee, but ain't that good. AINTS Job, good. Now I mean it's. It's not so going. So, Max Kellerman is now integrating Roy Roy Jones Junior, who's supposed to be fight? Meyer Mike on September twelfth and Los Angeles. Oh, I'm so stoked I'm Sto rose you, stope? Baby come. On? I think Roger's actually trying to. He's trying to help track down bret. Boone, WE'RE GONNA be talking with them in a second former Mlb all star and somebody good perspective on what's going on right now. Dodgers and Astros and also just baseball man like I. don't care what they say I. Don't care what Walk Rob Manfred says publicly Z. They're nervous man. They have to be nervous at the idea that they are already dealing with this. They've gotta be nervous even if they were fooling themselves for they've got to be. I hope not. I hope he's not nervous. I hope he's not nervous. Is the first sign of trouble that you set yourself up to get I? Hope not I hope you weren't blindsided. It was outbreak and city. You did nothing to prevent it. I hope not because. You were doing a thoughts and prayers approach to baseball. As opposed to actually I'm. GonNa put a contingency plan. Put the exact same question to Bret Boone, our guest, former MLB, all-star Brett. How are you and if you had? If had to guess here. Do you. Just putting you on the spot right away if you had to guess, do you think Rob Manford in baseball do that? They're nervous that they. They're a little bit skirt right now in shook at the idea, not just that they'd have an outbreak in with what's going on with the Marlins, but that they couldn't even get through the opening weekend without it happening. When all this came together I think. When you talked about rob Manfred. You know I I think there's a lot of criticism that that he he asked bear for leading up to all this. The negotiations months ago. How it was presented publicly the PR side of it, I think he deserves a lot of critics when it comes to that. I don't know that it rests on him. I think going into the thing I've always. I've been a proponent for. Let's play. I think it's good for the country and get into the world. For for the people. To direct with with the rules that are in place and the in the testing so frequently I. I was worried that there was gonna be. Something like this crop up. It was a matter of time. And and how they're gonNA deal with this, you know everybody knew going in the rules that were in place I personally if I were to put myself back into, serve my thirty year old body in the heyday of my career. I would take this as serious as possible. First of all I have an allegiance to my organization to my family. This is what I do for a living. This is my livelihood so I would be all in on playing that being said with with it with the testing protocol with rules in place which everybody knew going going in. A man I would do. The best job can as a player to bubble myself to stay away from everybody because I know when I come to that Ballpark I gotta yesterday and whether I'm sick. I'm not sick. It doesn't matter the rules are the rules. And I have to wait that seventy two hours, and then in other tests, and then the twenty four hours I mean I I was thinking from from day one. It's like. Starting rotations for me. Is You know these guys hang together? Those five guys are really tight and they sit there with each other day can wipe out entire rotation. Therefore they put the sixty. The sixty player ruled that pool of sixty players, and I sent from the beginning. It's tough to really handicapped this season. The sixty games I know everybody's trying to do it. It, but with these rules, there's a great chance whoever we start with. You're not gonNA finish with, and and so as we get further into this. Everybody's going along with us at the same pace. It's like what are we going to end up with? You know and they were already talking about. It's not a legitimate seasonal I think they're doing the best they can. But more and more these you know, teams could be decimated. Next thing you know. You're playing with a AAA team out there, so I. I don't know I yesterday. Hills on the golf course all this went down, so it was the first day that I wasn't Kinda Kinda in their finding out. You know that all the things going on minute by minute, but I'm just kinda gathering it now, and it's GonNa be. It's GonNa be tough, and there's GonNa be a lot of can hoops to jump through a lot of landmines out there I don't know what they can do. The rules are the rules are in place. They gotta buy them. You gotTA. Sick Man Pool. And and I. Think you know we're all. We're all going forward together on. You know it's kind of a wait and see thing I don't know I could see six could be a nightmare for for for the major. League Baseball seasons. Were they were they revisited they being the players and the players association debate sparkle back to. Say! Would, you consider doing a bubble that we agreed upon a sixty game season as opposed to one hundred sixty gains. But there's a huge difference and I think a lot of people are empathize where. You know when he was a regular season in a bubble, but a sixty game season did seem nearly as bad to baseball, Kovacs players and say, would you do that? Well know what I don't know. What actually happened behind closed doors. Know I'm not privy to that right now I I did talk to. My brother read through the season started and I said how you gonNA address. These guys you know I 'cause I was trying to put myself in their shoes and I'm just thinking as a player if I'm a main part of an organization. First of all. We're all men. We're all GonNa do what we we're going to do. We're GONNA. Make our own choices. You can't sit there and and navigate. Big League ballplayers. But I just from my perspective if I'm a player, if I'm a manager, whoever an intricate part of an organization! I need to to be accountable to my teammates accountable to my organization, so I thought about it for sixty games. You know and I have a family and kids and I love them, and and I wanNA come home after a road trip and the first thing I wanna do is hug my kids, but for this sixty games because I signed on the dotted line, and I'm accountable. Maybe, I can't come home and stay in my house with my family. Maybe I need to really quarantine myself. Stay with teammates, because if I make a decision now you know what I'm home I just went on a seven day road trip. I'm going to go out to dinner tonight. Do well I'm putting whether I'm sick. I have symptoms. It doesn't matter. It's the fact is I know the protocol and the protocol is when I. Go to that. Ballpark I'm going to be tested, and if I'm positive. I don't know where I got. Maybe I got it from Uber Yubari. But the fact is I can't play. And now I gotTa look at my teammates and I can't play, and and there's teams gotta look at me, so I think as men. We have to make the decision the most the most comparable decision we can make. We got sixty games to make a run at this to make this successful campaign in in maybe the most trying sports of of our lifetime. Man It's just it, but we're all human beings, and we're all creatures of habit. We're not used to doing this, but I don't know. If I if I was a player, I just do the best job I could. Whatever the rules were I have an obligation to my teammates in my organization to do the best job, I can to just stay with myself and my peers, my teammates that net that close route, but we're human beings. You got nap any guys. You Got Eight hundred thousand Major League baseball players. There's GONNA be some changes in the armor and We're starting to see that right now. Com Bret Boone former major-league all-star. Alright tonight we got the two game series kicking off infused in dodgers, Astros obviously a lot of history with that a lot of animosity lot of controversy. How two part question for you? How much do you think that still carries over right now? With with everything that's happened. You know leading up to this point. You know like the real world stuff that's been happening. How much do you think that carries over? And what if anything are you expecting to see manifest from that carryover? Well I. I think it's a little bit more. We'd like to talk about it in the press, and and from a you know a Just a personal interest. Just Oh, what's going to happen tonight? Or are they going to get drilled and they're not gonNA get. My take is as a player. That's the last thing on my mind. Okay, whatever happened with the Astros thing that's fine and I have a completely different. Take on, it. I think this is a widespread thing. In baseball I, it came down the Astros because the top of the mountain. You know on paper the last two or three years. They've been up there with arguably the best team in baseball. So when you're on top people were gunning for you, so yes, they get caught up in this controversy I. Don't have all the facts. Behind the scenes what went down? You know all I know is pretty high profile managers. Step down and they didn't go kicking and screaming so much. From that there's some pretty. They had of dead to rights in certain capacities that being said how it affects a player. The last thing I think about is going into Houston. And and drilling guy and getting you know. Some, justice in that I can put in my mind. My first thought is to go in there and kick Houston's but and get. A three-game series I WANNA come out two to three wins. That's the last thing I'm thinking about as retribution. Who am I going to draw their to win a ball game? If I've got a personal vendetta with a player, or my team has a certain problem with a certain player of that team well that we'll take care of itself when the time is right, but first and foremost. Your job is to win the game. And that that exterior stuff. If there's a if there's a situation, and usually these players are going in. They're talking about. Are we going to drill somebody or are we not? That's usually kind of kind of really. Kept on the down low and pitchers usually handle those situations, so I don't expect there to be a big deal made of it. I mean you know what's different from the dodgers in in Houston you know. Why is it? The dodgers Houston such a big deal. If people got a problem with the Houston, Astros would that that should be widespread. It shouldn't be dodger thing because the dodgers got beat for him. As a player! I don't know I. Don't know I I just need more information before I. Really come down that hard on somebody I need the facts, and I need to see him in front of my. Giving effects. Cheated, there was an investigation. They they correct, but to what extent? You know they they call the altuve anything. Some under his Jersey do I know the some under his Jersey if I find out Altoona to some under his jersey, he's somebody's got an earpiece in I say throw the book at Him. Okay, but until I have those facts I can't just. Just. Jump to those conclusions and tell you what I think. The the consequences should be for their actions. In fact, they cheated back. There's a lot of teams cheat I know one thing as a player in when you're in that clubhouse and the only way you know. If you're in that clubhouse, a current player, you know what's going on throughout baseball and anytime there was a scandal or anything going on I. Know One thing it usually wasn't isolated. It was usually league wide. So until I know exactly what was going on in that, it wasn't widespread fifteen twenty teams. Houston's the best team they got caught. They should be punished for that I. Don't know exactly what was going on. Are they getting? Once again. Let me let me make it easy. If, they're relaying pitches. To a hitter and he's getting some sort of electronic signal. Throw the look at him. Strip him of everything I agree with that, but until I know the facts. I can't really say what I think. The correct punishment should be I i. really don't and and if we're talking about how to in that Jersey. That's a conspiracy theories until I have those facts, 'cause. 'cause I know what goes on in those clubhouses, and it's not just one. There's could be fifteen teams going I'm glad they're not there. I'm glad they're not investigating US right now. 'cause we doing this this and this. It's not spoken publicly, but those players know what's going on, and I'm not accusing anybody because I don't have the facts, but I just know usually. From my experience as a major league baseball, we're we're not isolated. Jesus cheating and his capacity. Will you change stealing to a certain degree and? You say I'll. Investigations done. No, no, no in my era I can tell you we tried to get every. We could possibly get, but it was the human edge if a coach if that catcher got lazy with his right leg. And that coach could see and if I was on I, peek in I could see a signal. I can pick up breaking ball on stealing the next bit. If. I'm at second base and I can decipher your size I'm giving that pitch to my hitter and vice versa by gay caught I know the consequences are I'm GonNa wear one in the ribs. That's an eye for an eye if I can't you I'm gonNA. Go over to the guy at second base inter stealing our signs in a fight if I find out that you are, you know what's coming. That's how we handle as players. It's an eye for an eye now. That was that that was that era word new age. We're in two thousand twenty. The technology that data is is overwhelming. You're not gonna be able to take away electronic and I've had this conversation with my dad who? Who played a generation before me and I said. What do you think about all this? He said you have to get more sophisticated on your signs. You've got it think that when you're coming out of the DUGOUT, every camera is on everything you do so as me as a defender I've gotta get a little more sophisticated how I interact with my teammates. That's the only way you gotta assume as a catcher. There's a camera on you. You're giving signals every day. You GotTa get a little more intricate and how you give this on. That's the only way going forward forty years from now twenty years from now you're going to have even greater technology the only way you defend against that. is to defend against it with getting more intimate, and how you give your side because people are GonNa. Cheat, people are gonNA. Try to get an edge and I don't care you know we can talk about all. That's not the right thing to do. That's not real life, and that's not how players think they can get edge. They're going to get one whether it's electronically or not. Once again you go electronics, you go earpiece, you go something on your person. It's not the human, element. In my opinion, throw the book at him. That crosses the line for me, but I need that you see what I'm saying. I just need that hardcore evidence in front of me. I got to be able to read it before. I can accuse people of what I I know. One thing. They created in some capacity and so did the red sox. And you know Beltran with the met. Something was going on there, but I need to know what it is before I. Really go hard core and start throwing out. Oh, yeah, he should do this the he should get this thrown at them. I don't know that is my opinion. Former be all-star. Pat, Boone, great slow reshape time. Thank you very much. Thank you sir. I wasn't happy with your answers but I respect. Three hundred man. That's good. There's a lot. There's a lot to unpack from that. We were going to that next denny. The fired outlet boom. We just had. Talking. To I'm fired up to. Because if you read between the lines, he insinuated. That is quite possible that the dodgers also cheat. If you really you're. Saying about how it's widespread about how it could, it could be as many as fifteen different teas. If you listened real carefully. I presented him a question that was clearly saying we were victimize, and he gave me an answer that says maybe you were all victims. That's why I said EXPEC- what you have to say, but I don't agree with it because my dodgers are, you're not. Only. They never even stolen a great out of a grocery store when they went shopping. Produce section. They paid for everything. They try to sneak a grapevine, my son. My son Jake one of his friends got caught at a party drinking, but my son was the only one who didn't have anything. Other than Soda did not not my little baby boy, the dodgers, not my little baby boy I mean absolutely not I'm not here for slander slander I say slander. Case how you the? With I can't tell you what the stinky's are doing I. Don't know what the Florida Marlins and doing whatever they do. Anita stopping. They got the wrong. I don't know the giants are doing but I can tell you about dodges. Rhythm so my maze. Is Pure as fresh driven snow. Falling from the heavens above Lenny upon mountain tops and the distant beach at a distance that we can still see, but we can't quite touch the typing today off the novel I tell you Andy Jane austen novel, the type of snow that once it melts, it becomes the freshest drinking like just unspoiled pure could nourish the entire planet that wonderful. Let mended. Is I'm just not all these teams have done. It's just the No. You. There the one innocent. Deleting. I'm not here for that. Max Months. He's not Chidi co-develop. Not Chidi look at that face on cody bellinger. Is that the face of a cheater I ask you? Look at those. Hernandez was not CD Kiki. Kiki's wife is pregnant. How does he look seedy and he's got a baby on the way they look right. Man. I mean look at every single one of those players including by the way you was the one red sock that we know for certain. Do any type of Shenanigans in two thousand eighteen mookie betts. He's the one is the only one I guarantee took part in nothing. That was not above board. You know why because he's part of our dodgers, right? Part of dodgers. I do not like the what you're insinuating with your tone. Representing this question. I'M GONNA. Need you back the Hilla? You're you're getting too close to align the I for one am not here for. Do you understand the word that coming out of my mouth Andy. Do you see the words I'm? Not Going to see me for a while, you're going to be seeing anyone for a while unfortunately quarantined. You're not going to be sending Marlins for a while because that's situation and getting any better, but. I'm not saying the dodgers don't have a right to revenge. Because what they're Astros did is agreed GIS. You know even if they're a little bit critical done mean, there are a lot of the critical and absolutely I think if they want to take some revenge tonight, it is owed to them and I. wholeheartedly encourage a cross dock. Coming up next will be joined by George Donald Emmy. Nominations are out handy. Emmy nominee out. And what is leading all emmy nominees watchmen twenty six nominations. Twin relays nomination really watchmen. How about that in your I? I, did not I did not see that coming. I thought they would get some nominations. It's critically acclaimed show. I thought they'd get some love. I didn't think they'd lead the whole thing. That's awesome. That's. Amazing, that is amazing. I had an opportunity to interview Regina Cain not too long ago and the way she talks about the process of putting that show together for those you who haven't seen it watchmen. There's an outstanding series shutout. You Raj for me up to to begin with, but I couldn't stop watching it Regina doesn't actually amazing. Amazing job. Entire cast does and is so. Is so good. She's always great like Regina King. For so long has been that access that every time she shows up in something. She makes it like ten to fifteen percent incrementally better just by virtue of her presence, and actually years ago Brian I interviewed her for our podcast and she was fantastic interview. She's an L.. A. Native Went Westchester high same. School as Trevor Reza and those guys. She was a track athlete. Yeah. She loves sports. She's a big Laker Fan and she is one hell of a talented actress. She's awesome. Anything she's. So good and that's really cool. Glad to hear that. The Sodano air glad that. Saddam I I actually I thought the leader was either going to be succession. Or Shits Creek. which both ended up getting some representation, but I did not picture was going to be watching, but again good for I. Mean especially when you know everything that Regina King did to get that show off the ground because he's really been a labor of love for her in a Labor of effort. That's fantastic. That's really cool. Donald there you are you. You're just talking about the watchman. Emmy nominations are out and they have twenty six nominations leading everybody. Did you see that series of watchmen? I did not? I did not see the series. The watchman so I apologize. I don't even know where it's on. What is it on Hulu Netflix? Oh My. Someone with multiple children. Yes, on HBO IT'S ON HBO. I WANNA. Start watching the Perry Mason reboot. Though I have seen that pop up on HBO, Bunch of Times says anything that no nice was talking about yesterday. He said it looks good. It looks good. Yeah, Mason said it was actually. He said it was a really good. Right now, so that's definitely some people should be watching for George expecting revenge tonight you expecting revenge down in Houston from the. Against the Astros, no, no Kenley Jansen was on with us a couple of weeks ago and said that he look. He thinks that they're the champs like as in the dodgers, but he's not gonNA. Throw it anybody. He literally said and the only guy that's made that. Felt that way that has said that he may do. It was Ross stripling, and he's not scheduled to pitch so. Commit a crimes committed beforehand, but here's the thing there's that and here's the thing. If you're one of the dodgers players and you actually do that, you're going to get suspended for longer. You'RE GONNA get worse punishment in the Astros did so. What's the point in it? Just feels good. Going to city gives him chicken wings. It's not a good idea, but it just feels good. Plus too, I mean look. George looking right now. You might as well throw caution in the wind. Who knows for action going to have a full season? So get it in now. You're you're. Messing Baseball George Bush with your state they take. The according to the Philadelphia Inquirer that the marlins acquired the Rona in Atlanta maybe they were at magic city. All. Georgia's new Williams Oh. They did they did practice games in Atlanta for a couple nights before they went to Philly? So. They're blaming Atlanta. Yeah. They hadn't been in Miami a couple of weeks in a week or so. Were they doing in Atlanta besides baseball I mean you know you've lived there. They were doing I was doing Atlanta.

Sports are back! But for how long?

"A VPN that keeps you private and lets you access content from around the world? Yes. Please a VPN. That watches what you're watching and logs data. How about? No that's why HMA VPN is proud to be the only donkey themed VPN with no data logging whatsoever a prestigious honor. We assume get HMA VPN now with seventy five percent off and see what we're talking about go to HMA VPN DOT com slash deal. To recode media, the're Kafka that's me. Taping this in Brooklyn. Because it's twenty twenty that's that's what I do and twenty twenty things in Brooklyn. Sports are back. So this is a recode media special pandemic sports addition. Baseball started last week. The NBA Starts Today we're delighted to have sports leagues. I'm delighted have sports. It's important for the media business advertisers desperately craves sports, programmers crazy sports audience is wanted of, but sports is weird NBA's being played in a bubble which kind of sounds good ed bubbles and Florida, which is not the best place to be right now speaking of Florida half of the Florida marlins tested positive for covid. So that team is not playing baseball and the whole question of whether we're going to have a baseball season is sort of unsettled. Work in progress. I don't know if you've watched a game they're they're they're weird because there are no fans of the stance. It's baseball and basketball and real sport is a weird experience to watch it without without a crowd there even when they pump in fake crowd noise. I guess we'll get used to it because we've gotten used everything else like not leaving our house or. Hugging our friends and family. What a bummer. Okay. But the show was great. It's a good show we've got a bunch of different guests. You'RE GONNA enjoy hearing from all of them. For stuff we've Brian Windhorst from ESPN. Last recode media guests I interviewed in person. Some of you may recall that up Ryan I talked hours before the NBA shutdown and the rest of the country shutdown that was back in. March. Lindsay Adler covers the Yankees in baseball athletic. And then we'll talk to Tanya Dan Guli covers the Lakers for the La Times and she is in the bubble. So we're talk to her about bubble life. He's good chance you're GONNA like him. So let's get right to them. First up. Is Brian Windhorst? I Brian Nice to chat with you. The last time we talked it was in person you were the last person I interviewed in person at Fox media. headquarters. the second week of March because after we talked the world shut down. So Nice Chat with you wish we could do it in person you know I went back and listen to that podcast yesterday and I think it was either that night or the next day that the NBA shut down it was that night we talked in the afternoon you said I don't think the NBA is going to be able to finish the whole season, but maybe they'll get. Done and we were debating whether it'd be the playoffs or not, and you said something along the lines of one thing I know for sure is the only player gets sick gets tested positive the whole league shots and then hours later Rudy Gobert. Shut down the week but I remember. I said well, you know this might cause a pause a four to six weeks a little offs. Little off on that one. Well, here's the thing everyone was off and we've done many many. Takes of who got what wrong immediate got a lot of stuff from but it was natural at the time in early March to look at places like China and say, well, they've they've got it SORTA under control in their opening up sports again in the US should be able to do that and in truth that is kind of what has happened around the rest of the world We all know what's going on in the US what I wanted to do. Is Talk to you bit about of what the State of play is with basketball today, and then we can talk about how we got there. I think people who pay attention as podcast pay attention to sports no that the NBA's restarting that it's all happening in Disneyworld in Florida a bubble there. What else should we know in general about what's happening with the NBA? Restart. Yes. So there's twenty two of the thirty teams that have gone to play why twenty two. While because part of the way, they were able to convince the players to do it. was that they agreed to. Give them back salary. You know the you the Union contract with the League Headey Force Majeure clause in it and right there in black and white it says that in the event of an epidemic. The word epidemic is in there and I know that's interesting because there's a lot of other insurance in other contracts that don't have that they can cancel it and not pay the players and. So to convince the players to to actually go do this to submit themselves for potentially up to three months in the bubble, you make it all the way to the end. It's going to be around three months being in there they had to. Basically, save enough television money to make it worth the players wile and so they couldn't do all thirty because they were just a little bit worried about handling that many people and they they negotiate it back and forth for a while but by bringing twenty two teams in. They will play eighty going to hopefully play eighty eight regular season Games where television revenue will be able to be collected, and they will be able to save six, hundred, fifty million dollars in salaries for players that otherwise would have been lost, and the deal is, is that even if you're not on one of the teams. went to Orlando you get your paycheck for those eight games. So it additional eight paychecks. So if I'm one of the, if I'm one of the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves, my miserable team. I'm still going to get paid in some way even though I'm not in the bubble. Yeah I. said there were some teams that were very disappointed that they couldn't go but there were other teams that were like I don't have to take the risk of going and I still get my eight eight game checks It made a you know there was a lot of people who said, Hey, this is actually not so bad of a deal. there were a handful of players who opted out and said, I'm not going to come, and if you were not excused in other words, you didn't have a pre existing condition or he didn't have an injury and you just said, Hey, listen I just don't WanNa play you didn't get your paycheck for for those games. Let's sort out the money part. So you have the players you have the league, you have the networks and the advertisers. Is All the money that advertisers had committed to spending down the NBA is that still going into NBA? As, well, the mummy, the NBA was expecting collect from from programmers like Turner and ESPN or are they still getting that or or is all this sort of pro? So the key a huge Ke was a seventy games so Most of the television local television contracts. Have clause in them that says you you have to be guaranteed seventy games the normally there's eighty two games and the other which means that you can you can get up to twelve games a year that national television can take from you. Not Put on your air but you're guaranteed seventy in the case of New York teams MSG is guaranteed seventy. Yes. Is Guaranteed seventy. Most teams had played between sixty two and sixty five games so. These eight Games for these twenty, two teams all for almost all of them, not quite all of them will get into that seventy number and guarantee that they will get their full local television money, and in some cases, it's millions of dollars per game or millions of dollars in you know it's hard to say that you're saving the money earning the money because this is basically. Capturing money than otherwise wouldn't have gone out the door. So by playing these eighty eight regular season games satisfy a majority of teams local television deals and also returned six, hundred, seventy, six, hundred, fifty, million that would have been lost, and so the overall you know the overall savings is it's a billion dollar moved to be able to play just these eighty eight regular season games and then the playoffs. So when you say savings are not not saving money where you're retaining money. Got Up your closing the window as the money's flying out the Cova window you know the thing about this is though They're not playing Disney world for free. You know Disneyworld is. Owned by Disney obviously also owns a ESPN ABC. The primary sponsor. So there was a working together and it's costing the NBA About one hundred, seventy, million dollars to use Disney world for these three months to use. Multiple resorts to use their facilities. Now to get food to get a entertainment to get other things. Now, I have no idea what. The actual value of of renting if you were meet Peter called up Bob idea and said, hey, how much to rent throughout three hotels and three arenas for three months? I'm not sure what the cost would be but I'm sure that there was some arrangement done. But the point is is in this endeavor is costing the League money, but they're doing it. To retain. Other. Money was going out the door and also. Like you said, it's also from Disney right? Like Disney has has a very vested interest in having televised basketball. Both in terms of the actual revenue, they would get from one of those games and also there's nothing else on TV, as we all know. Everyone has except for Netflix's everyone has run out of content there's no new programming coming There's no live sports and so in theory, the value of of any kind of sports goes way way up. For Disney and everyone else over the next few months. Yeah. So the first Major League baseball game out of the shoot, which was the defending champion nationals the was against the Yankees last week over the weekend Yup it got four million viewers and get rained out in the sixth inning so You know there were probably some viewers on the west coast. You didn't get to watch it but than four million viewers, which was one of the highest rated regular season telecasts. I don't remember what the notes were, but it's been a long time since four million people watched a game on cable and so there's an entire slate of NBA Games? Amend the playoff games coming up on ESPN TNT and they are hoping for ratings in that in that range. But in the short term here in one of the things that set up with these arenas. If you watch a Trail Blazers Grizzlies game. If the trailblazers are designated as the home team. The trail. Blazers local. Sponsors they've sold will be. Shown on the boards around the court. Some of the local trailblazer sponsors are but In. So they've they're doing everything they possibly can to retain. Every. Single dollar that they can. To providing the fans with something to watch I, know baseball has changed some some of the rules of the game and again baseball's a whole situation. Maybe baseball is not going to happen after all. But they've they've changed the designated hitter rule they've changed they're going to put a man on second base and extra innings to make the game go faster any changes to the way the game itself was actually going to get played or still basketball the way we were watching it last week no There's there's changes to like how they're going about. It know the players are now socially. Distanced on the bench there's all kinds of one hundred pages worth a rules of how they have to operate wall in that that bubble environment. But in terms of what's going on out there on the rectangle the court it's going to be regular basketball still posting up and dunking banging into each other all of that. Yeah, and it is a little absurd Peter I will say that That you can go out there and sweat against an and bang into a guy at the middle of the lane knocked a guy on his backside and all that stuff and you know they're not supposed to be really slap and fives, but they are. And then you go over and you say, no, no. No. I have to sit five feet from this. You're six feet from the style on the bench. It's a little. It's you know it's a little bit absurd but they're doing the best that they can and You know we haven't had a a release of tests in a week but the last time the NBA released testing information they had zero positive tests in the bubble. It's been incredible success thus far. But of course, it's so fragile right? Everyone's crossing their fingers and what happens if we do have an outbreak again we're seeing that in baseball right now. As speaking what is the contingency plan? If a bunch of the Lakers get sick, what what happens is they have not been clear. You know there's one hundred one hundred, thirteen page document that was produced at extraordinary effort by the League I mean they took months to research this and they they consulted so many different experts and but they they purposely left vague what what what it would mean. We know what would necessitate them to stop and I think that they will know it when they see it I will put it this way they have prepared for positive tests. It will not be one. The last time we spoke it took one to shut down it will not be one it will not be too and my guess is will not be three. You know the one of the things that in talking to executives in the League they wonder if there'll be a different standard applied, for example, if three wizards players test positive, will the wizards be asked to leave if three Lakers players test positive they say go into quarantine and we'll see in two weeks. You know. Being that you will. You don't WanNa, say goodbye the Lakers but you have no problems right? You want to keep Lebron James he wanted to the La Market what do? So you're not, you're not in the bubble was at your choices that ESPN's choice. Yeah I mean I I. I can't say what my bosses would have done but they came to me a while ago and so that you interested in I said no You know, I have a two year old and. The concept of being down there you know for months and the other thing is that. Way The NBA has done the technology You know you can really be it active medium member from from your home. I can attend these press conferences that they're having a virtually I can ask questions. I may not always get my question through because you have to go through a Q. and if you you know Lebron is only taking six questions at the end there's twelve in the queue I may not get it but I, I'm talking to people in the bubble every single day whether it's Like everyone else you can. You can do remote work and we're hopefully talk with Tanya Gan Guli who's covering the Lakers and the only times that is in the bubble. But what I have been reading is that the people who are down there are very restricted in terms of what they can do. So you can't seidel up to a player at practice or something, and then get some one on one time So there maybe even less benefit to being there in person what what do you think of? The product is it looked like basketball to you is I mean obviously there's if anyone's watch hasn't washed an NBA game and check it out it's it's weird. There's there's a sort of simulated fans, simulated cheerleaders. It's not as weird as baseball I think it. Kind of reminds me of like going down to YMCA and watching a game kind of looks like a a small court. Have you noticed any change in the actual product was really worried about this Peter because the players have been off for four months? And it's typically I to- out of their routine, they weren't able to do norther normal off seasons although. It's very clear if you watch all the teams, it's very clear that some teams may have been practicing with each other and others not That's one of the. It's one of the things that's being whispered amongst executives. But I don't know but the NBA. was of secret practice facilities you know and there were some cities where the players all all you know. The Nets next quite frankly from what I understand most their players left New York. Whereas the Lakers in the in the in the clippers love their players stayed in La. Some of it was just the idea that where physically you were, you know the up the raptors, for example, where north of the border, all of their players I believe. So for one or American. And so they all came back to home. You know. So some of it was a matter of your market but so was concerned about the quality of play. It has been better than I thought it is not great. The playoffs start August seventeenth and so you know these next couple of weeks will be games. I don't know I. Think it will be a little bit of trial and error but I I think you'll. You'll like what you see. The NBA did not want it to feel like a completely empty environment. Now baseball is limited they have A. They have these stadiums with forty thousand empty seats. It's a little bit difficult. The NBA has basically surrounded these these courts with video boards and they use the video boards in many different ways they put the team logos on there to make the home the quote unquote home team feel like it's at home they can use it for advertising like I said, and one of the things that they are that they are doing is they are letting fans come in to. In real time allegedly real time sitting in front of their webcams and they can be. Unlike baseball where there's cutouts, you can actually have live fans in a matrix along around the court. You know if it's a if it's a war if it would say raptors, Home Game Raptors fans if it's a jazz home game jazz fans and then they will be able to cheer as a you know somewhat collective now whether that technology is actually GonNa make any sense the NBA experimenting. The other thing is the broadcasts are experimenting with fake crowd noise I think we're gonNA hear a wide range of opinions on that I think between now in that playoff date, the broadcasters maybe doing some experimenting to. So when we spoke in March, we were you know we had our early March information and and lots of what we know about corona virus in covid is chain has changed is changing and so all of this is a big asterix. But right now, as it stands, it doesn't look like we're going to be able to have anything approaching normal sporting events in America. For many many many many months you know maybe next spring. So as the NBA is would like to have another season this year right? They WANNA cerise start the next season of the end of two, thousand twenty. So the timing right they're hoping to. Yeah. So do they imagine they bring back the bubble? Then what was the current conversation? So this is this is something that is while everybody is focused on Orlando the. Business asked the business operations of the rest of the League is obsessed with the question that you just asked. What is the best thing to do do do they start up again basically right on the heels of this, take a month off, take November off and come back in December and have the finals and everything next summer as normal does this bubble work and if you're not gonNA have fans anyway you look at. another bubble environment or multiple bubbles because if that's the only way to execute the games or with the you know the the belief in the hope about a vaccine do you just delay? Do you push next season off and you take another four or five months off and hope that you have vaccine not only for the safety of the players but for the concept that you can breed fans in because Peter about forty percent of the NBA revenue is derived from the people in. The building not just the FA ticket buying and the beer buying but you know the sponsorships and not just the sign edge that you see but also a huge huge weight teams do money. Now with naming rights, they have all of these gloves and their lexus buys this BMW by club and and that's all gone The Golden State Warriors who have this brand new arena was completely built onto squeezed every dollar of this new arena and for them about eighty percent of their revenue. Is based on that arena based on fans coming to that arena and so you know. So the the thought processes, which is the best path, and we can sit here in July. And Guess, but we may not know until, October, we made what's is there one school of thought that has the most momentum or has the most powerful folks pushing for it or is everyone sort of shrugging their shoulders? This wants then we literally don't know. Yeah, I think. So they're working on scenario ABCD whatever I think the idea that I would. You know the thing is I I think. There's never going to be a one-size-fits-all, Peter because. we're going to have markets where they're probably going to allow fans like. You know they seem to be very aggressive in states like Atlanta in Florida it's very possible that the Atlanta Hawks will be allowed to have five thousand people in their building or or seven thousand, five hundred people in their building, and they can sell tickets whereas the Golden. State. Warriors. In La, Lakers cannot and so do you go forward from that and and then you have to make a deal with the players because while teams revenues are now obviously going to be going to fluctuate mostly fluctuate down. Players contracts are guaranteed. Contract, in two thousand, eighteen for four years it says what I'm supposed to get paid in two thousand and twenty one well. You know they're going to have to come to an agreement the players they're going to have to basically reduce their contracts. That's actually already happened the players right now since since May have been taking a pay cut every player is getting. About ten or fifteen percent less. So that's all got to be worked out but so we're looking at the spectacle of millionare's negotiating with billionaires an and and and the fans themselves won't have a lot of sympathy for it. But I think that one difference there is that I think pretty much everyone in America. Right now has at least some degree of empathy for the idea that no one really knows what's happening where all unfortunately making up as we go any anyone who's got kids who are supposed to go back to school. Knows about this kind of uncertainty. So I guess, and this is the worst kind of journalism go. We'll wait and see but we will wait and see. So maybe we can come back and talk to you in a few months how it's all going yeah, and I hope that. Everything I said here didn't prove to be foolish. Gamble I don't I credit you forgetting mostly right last time out we'll. We'll see we'll see how this up Brian thanks for your time. Thank you. Peter Take Care. Thanks again to Brian for coming on. Always makes feel smarter. Next up. We're GONNA hear from Lindsay Adler from the athletic. But first, we're going to hear from a fine sponsor.

I remember I used to have a history teacher back at UCLA WHO said to us that there are times when you could feel the pfister history tightening around you fuss about that. She was talking not long after nine eleven but this is another one of those moments. It is a hinge moment in the American democratic. Experiment. The entire globe is being battered by the current virus. We're dealing with some of our oldest moons in this country on top of entirely new technologies. It is a crazy time. I'm client host of Poncho PODCASTS, and what we're trying to do right now is understand our time and find some the ideas that might help us chart away out of it. The best you months we've talked Thomas. Coats about why the protests made him actually hopeful tomorrow through Kado about the ways in which economics profession has misunderstood the concept and his measure, the concept of value to Elizabeth Warren about her plan to combat the coronavirus trust outfit about whether or not American societies become decadent. He's have all been great conversations and there are so many more i. hope you'll join me every Monday Thursday to stay informed and maybe you get a sense of is well subscribed show on apple podcast spotify or wherever you're listening to this right now. I'm speaking with Lindsay Adler from the athletic normally covers the Yankees in an ideal world. She'd she'd be traveling around the country this summer following the Yankees but right now that's not happening. Welcome Lindsey. I WanNa talk to you about about your job and what you're doing and but I want to start off with sort the state of baseball recording this Wednesday morning things can change by time people hear this and a day, but tell us where where we are baseball today it seems like we're continuing on with baseball even there's a well-publicized outbreak of covid with the Marlins I would describe it as. Currently contained chaos if they Sunday through Tuesday where Berry intense the. Marlins outbreak as of Tuesday was up to fifteen players in two staff members and it. Sixty sixty players. Thirty players. yet math is the math is not in their favor there, but it bound up canceling games for for teams it rearranged can for the Yankees Orioles in the marlins are now shutdown until next week. So the Marlins are not playing the Florida Marlins So obviously, the the game they had scheduled, other teams are not happening and our other other teams are, are there other games that are canceled? That are not marlins related. So it really kind of set off. A chain reaction the. Marlins. On Sunday had four positive cases that morning and then they played against the phillies and so then the Marlins were supposed to go back to Miami for their home opener in the Baltimore Orioles we're going to go play them and the Yankees headed to Philly to face them Monday and Tuesday. So you have these two series with these four teams. And when the MARLINS got. Another bigger wave of positive tests on Monday they shut down the marlins orioles game and the. Phillies. Game. Out of precaution, and then the phillies players were retested on Monday those. Samples, it's the saliva based test where they spit in a tube. Those animals were taken to rutgers university. Tested but since those test results did not come back until Tuesday morning the Yankees Tuesday night game in Philly was postponed as well. and. So it really kind of set off this. You know really big fear. You know this is this is the first big outbreak and it's bad. It's it's seventeen people. So it's kind of been a whirlwind so you have this cascading effect. We saw I was talking to Brian Win Hurst from ESPN and we all remember what happened way back in March when bear tested positive new that crazy scene with the arenas being cleared. No one in the nose going on and you know you could cut the NBA little slack because they weren't really ready for this. But baseball has had four months to prepare for this. They're supposed to have a system that that allows for. The idea that people are going to get sick over the season. So what what happened at something go wrong or is this actually the plan is this actually baseball baseball's is this thing's working to plan. I believe that the League is working pretty hard to find out to to the best of their ability where this outbreak started with the Marlins but the thing to understand about baseball versus basketball is basketball played in a bubble whereas baseball's protocols. You know they're very extensive and they make a lot of sense, but they are very reliant on personal accountability. Ideas the teams are traveling from Stadium to stadium like the normally would they're playing in an empty stadium so that that's their version of they don't have a bubble they're just supposed to take care of themselves and and travel. Yes. So I'm not sure that we will publicly ever get. A real answer with what happens with the Marlins I'm not sure if there's privacy concerns. Things like that but. MLB seems to. Be. Hoping depending on how tests for the PHILLIES comeback over the next couple. Of. Days. Hoping that this is contained to the Marlins and Everyone else all other twenty nine teams are able to proceed. Normally maybe with A. Heightened sense of accountability and taking precaution. So the idea is MLB wants to believe this is a one off event that this is unfortunate that half of a team got got sick and at the other, this won't happen at the other twenty nine teams and they can proceed as normal carry on. Helpfully. I'd never met you. I'm looking at you through a video screen. You seem to have a skeptical face or at least you seem to be treating this proposition ethically what do you what I mean? I can't predict the future but what do you think happens to baseball this year? Do we get through the regular season into the playoffs without another sort of major catastrophe? I think the issue is there's no actually well-defined. Limit for what ends the season or what shuts it team down. There is no specific number. You know if five players on the Marlins test positive than their shut down for four days. There's there's nothing like that in the choice to end the season is left to the. Discretion of the Commissioner. And So it's it's subjective and the kind of threshold the the league gave this week was. Getting to a point where maybe a team is not competitive which I would say having fifteen of thirty players test positive is noncompetitive but. You know you mentioned Rudy Gobert and that was. In Tampa, during Yankees Spring Training that night I was watching on TV in it very much feels to me like a you know. A where were you situation? You Know I. Packed up my stuff and flew back to New York quickly. and. I would say that Monday, and Tuesday definitely felt like Rudy Gobert situation but now sport presses on so. It's an interesting test of how this is going to work. So speaking of interesting you, you're a beat writer, you covered baseball, you cover the Yankees your job is to cover the INS and outs of the Yankees and be aware of the League in general you. Now I guess have to add amateur epidemiologists and infectious disease specialist to your list of attributes. How much your time are you spending sort of? Thinking about your health and safety health and safety of the league versus. Who's WHO's pitching? Well, I would say that I have approximately zero brains face left for anything that is not baseball and coronavirus in baseball. It's it's complicated. It's something that I think about a lot because there are a lot of fans who. I mean, it's been a bad year watching baseball is enjoyable. You know even knowing off the risks when I have been watching games at home I've really enjoyed it. So there's a lot of people who do just want to read about the pure baseball side but. I want to make sure that you know if I look back in five to ten years coverage reflects what this was actually like so. I'm thinking about it a lot and I'm trying to find the balance in in terms of my safety. The League has pretty. Well defined media protocols we don't get tested like the players in staff do I know that in the NBA bubble there the reporters are getting tested every day for not getting tested. We get temperature checks. There's a limit on how many of us can be in the press box, and fortunately the press box inky stadium is very large. It's Open Air I. Don't think that I've really come within ten feet of anyone in the. I don't know ten or so times that I've been there since training camp start. So I feel okay. But I do feel that I have a lot of personal responsibility to decide. Am I going to drive three states away to. Watch this for or is it better for me to stay home? Do you have the option of I can and kind of have to do my work remotely although I'm actually going to the office today for a couple of hours but but I this is I'm working from home indefinitely Do you have the option of covering the Yankees from? Oh Yes my editors have been very. Firm none of us have to go to the ballpark for not comfortable with it. I am still kind of trying to figure out that balance for myself but you know there there is the option I, would say, really. At home I have access to the pre and postgame zoom media availabilities I can watch the game. It's just for me when I'm writing about it. It's just a little bit different for me to see it in person so. I would like to continue doing that I do think that if I'm not talking to players one on one in the clubhouse round, the fields seeing the game for myself hopefully enhances. Coverage for readers, but it's a constantly evolving like cost benefit analysis of it. Say. So before we started recording, you told me that you were supposed to go to Baltimore but then you realize you couldn't go to Baltimore because when she went to, Baltimore, you'd be quarantined when you came back to new. York. It never once occurred to me that that this this was an issue for I sports reporter in two thousand twenty but of course it is. Had you sort of thought that through in advance or is this something that just sort of popped up for you as well? It's really strange because. I. Really. Feel that I rely on not just those. In person things that I can pick up, you know what I mean. It's just different on a broadcast. I can't necessarily see every defensive alignment. I can't see every weird thing going on in the dugout or on the fields and. Really, you know those in person interactions with players in staff a really what's important but I am all safety I I will I will sacrifice talking to players from ten feet away. MEANS THAT EVERYONE STAYS SAFE This is not how I expected to spend the season I. Think everyone would be happier if we were not in the situation. So is your plan than to travel with the team when you can I guess you'd have to sort of. Hope that they're playing in states that New York allows travel from, which is I think not that many right now. I had expected. So the Yankees were scheduled to play in Philly Monday and Tuesday and Garrett Cole was supposed to pitch on Tuesday. So I was planning on just kind of making it a long day trip from New York. Just drive out there in the morning drive back at night. I. Don't know really if that's in the cards and. I it. As the number of like states now have quarantine restrictions when you re enter New York State, I think that's kind of going to set the parameters for me but I'm not getting on an airplane, the season I'm not going anywhere near Florida. So. I was kind of thinking that I would just stick to the Philly Baltimore. DC kind of Selah corridor. And let's talk a little bit about about the actual games in in the product I watched a little bit of just sort of had it on a background a few days ago was the as Game I. Guess Probably Opening Day and I got a Gig a of the funny cutouts in the stands. Listening to the play by play was interesting because there's a lot of discussion of black lives matter which is also very different in two thousand twenty. It seemed like the baseball was baseball I think there's a couple rule changes that are mainly around the is anything I mean does it look like baseball look like lasser hit looks like baseball but it looks like, sloppy, baseball. I would say the three. Three Games. The Yankees played against the Washington nationals. Games on Saturday and Sunday they were. They were pretty sloppy for both of them and. A. I think a lot of players that are really good job of like staying in Game Ready Shape whether they're pitcher or a hitter, but I think having a very short spring training two point. Oh, mostly intra squad games like. Guys just aren't really tuned up to the flow of it so it's It's definitely baseball ended his definitely still kind of triggered that lake. You know part of my lizard brain that's like your strikeouts in home runs. Great Just hope. I think over the next couple of weeks it'll just tighten up a little bit and what was the Audience Reaction People Are Star for sports right. There's a whole theory that the stock market is being influenced because there's people who normally be watching sports and betting on sports and they're betting on stock instead Are they flocking back to watch baseball in record numbers just because it's there or something else? Had the. The Yankees a nationals opening day game on Thursday, which was eventually shortened by rain ESPN a release it was like just an absurd number of viewers kind of record setting for them. There was a lot of interest there. I am not sure in terms of general television audiences. I have felt that more people have been reading my work engaging with my work you know kind of. It's kind of reverting back to the natural dynamics where I can just. tweet about you know someone state play or something, and there are five people who agree with me strongly in five people who disagree with me strongly and I'm like okay. So this is just this is just how it works premium and. Yes. Well, I mean we'll take normalcy in any whatever version we can get it. If you had to bet today on whether we finish a season and get through a world series. What would you think the odds are? I would say that when I am in the ballpark. It feels like we're GONNA. Get through the season, and then when I am sitting at home reading a reporting the news, it does not. I would say this Marlin situation kind of. Influences on but I think it's still fifty fifty just. It's too hard. To gauge where this is going because it was a dumb trick question but I I appreciate that you you answered it the. Fifty. Fifty is always the right answer right? It could happen I mean I have no expectations anymore after this year. And predicting. Things. I just look at it to you. I'm looking at the thinking of the dog sitting and everything flame picture. This is fine. That's I got three text messages from people with the Yankees with the this is fine. Dog yesterday so. That is that is that the name says it will. Let. You get back to work I. Appreciate Your Time Lindsay Adler Athletic thank you. Thanks again to Lindsey. Now, we're going to chat with Tony Guli who live in the bubble in. ORLANDO. I'm speaking with Tania Congruity, she covers the Los. Angeles Lakers for the Los Angeles Times and she is in the bubble in Orlando will come on. how long have you been in the bubble got here on July twelfth so I think this is good. Rochard test I think some people. If you said, you are either going to cover basketball you're going to go to Disneyworld and do nothing but either play basketball or watch people play basketball for up to three months. Some people would say that's great. Sign me up and others would say I want no part of this I need more going on my life it's job so you have to do it but how was it going? It's going pretty well, I think sort of fall in the middle of what you're talking about I it's it's just such a cool opportunity to be able to cover this experiment here. So it was important to me that I got to do it. But also there is the fact that like I'm not GonNa, I'm not gonNA see anybody. But like these reporters that are here an NBA people and like the teams that are Miranda I'm not going to see like anyone from any other part of my life until I'm out of here in September. So. There's a little bit of both I mean I think it has been really fun to see the basketball close into. Be there for the practices an end to be in the arena for the game it's a totally different experience from what I understand watching it on TV because you can hear so many things and you're so close to the action. So that's been really fun but I do I mean there's plenty of that I. Miss for being on the outside it's like being deployed in the army right accepted. You're going to Disney world for three months in are you in for the duration or are you there as long as the Lakers clippers are there? So I am going to be there's there's a point during the there's a point during this process that the NBA has loud news outlets to switch a person can only be done one time for the most part So I'M GONNA be switching out with a colleague of mine in early September and then I'll I think I'll the plan is for me to come back if the Lakers are in the finals not to inside the bubble but to the second tier that's right outside the bubble as well still to experience it a little bit but. I'll be in here at least for a little over another month. So the players been practicing in scrimmaging and now the official season kicks off the remainder of the officials season kicks off on on Thursday. When this podcast is out I want to hear what their life is like I want to get a sense of what your day is. do you have? I think we were going back and forth and you sure what your schedule was because you hadn't heard from the NBA. It seems like a lot of your days of dictated by what the NBA is telling you should and shouldn't do or what you can and can't cover what's an average day for you right now. So they asked us to give them our requests two days in advance. So want to interview someone. So where I WANNA go see this game I want to go to this practice I want. To Go to this game for Thursday. Night's games for the opening games they they asked US yesterday. So today's Tuesday. They asked us three days in advance because he wanted to sort of get ahead of things. So that's part of why it's hard for me to to say what my schedule is going to be like a week from now and I've been talking to some other reporters about this is because we're all getting a lot of podcast radio requests and some some stations they think they're being. By I mean, I think everyone thinks they're being considered by giving us much advance warning as possible. Would it gives so much anxiety because we're like I have no idea what like my day is going to be like in two days because they haven't told me yet if I'm approved for this or. I'm approved for that practice or that game. So we find out we find out the night before everybody gets their approvals the night before, and then you plan your day accordingly, it can really be any time I mean, they don't like the it's not like they're doing the west coast teams a favor and letting them practice later there everybody's everybody's practicing at whatever time the NBA says they will sometimes that's nine am sometimes that's six pm who can say. and. So they're assuming that you don't have autonomy in terms of like you don't get to walk wherever you want to go that. You're sort of have to. Badger get badged in your approved for this. But not that when you're not at a at an approved practice or game or whatever you're at, are you allowed to move around the campus or do you have to sort of go back? To the hotel room and sit there. Now, we can move around but it's a very limited area that we can move around to. We can't go to any of the well so far we have not been allowed to go to any of the restaurants a think they're planning a time of day like a time of the week when they're going to allow us to maybe use some of the restaurants. They just have figured out a golf schedule where they've said like we can go play golf at these certain certain specific times What they don't want is for us to run into coaches or players who are trying to play golf out there I've noticed over the last few days there's been seeing the security seems to be a lot more aggressive in making sure people aren't going whether or not supposed to I'm not sure who else is in. The category that we reporters are in, which is the I. Would I think we had the most restrictions on us through the few places that we can go, but it's it's not just I know it's not just us but I'm not quite sure who all it is the team people, the players and the people who are here with the teams they can go anywhere. They want went around roam around. Yeah, and they can even like visit other hotels. That can visit mean everybody's here right now there's a lot of there's a lot of warning to catch up with people so like you know, Frank Vogel Lakers coach is telling me yesterday that he he's thinking of a going to visit with the Pacers staff that's those people the coach with for very long time. The Pacers have had a lot of continuity. So he you know he used to coach there and he's like maybe all goes say hi. To them and hang out there a little bit So there's there's the opportunity for a lot of for them to see a lot of different things in terms of reporting the craft of finding people that you WanNa talk to getting them to tell you interesting things I assume that as a very different operation for you right now because you're you're so constrained, you can't sort of seidel up to someone after practice and get five minutes alone with them. How and it seems like in some ways, you'd be better off not being in the bubble you could. You could. Call people in you'd have freedom of movement. How are you compensating for those restrictions? Well, it's actually I actually disagree with that characterization because it's it's actually from a reporting angle. It's been pretty good I mean there's there is an opportunity. Still if you know someone, there is an opportunity still to talk to them because they might come up to you where they. Walk by you, and if you say something, they'll they'll be willing to talk to you. If you're someone that they know one I think that also what's also possible? One on ones are are possible here they're allowed. You know a lot of it's a little bit more rigid in that you'll have to you'll have to set that set it up with a PR person. In but I've been to the live teams. When, I'm not at the Lakers or clippers, most of the other teams don't have very many people at their practices and so you go to Orlando Magic practice for example, like their will they'll they just what do you need Houdini to talk to I didn't I didn't set up anything in in advanced but I was still able to get to one on ones with. With the coach with two players in the coach. The pelicans very similar I. mean there's there's just there's so few reporters here and the Lakers clippers command a lot of attention because there's to beat writers from Los Angeles runs a new other city has that no other team has sat. So if you go outside of of the La Market Media Starve markets are those guys are happy to talk to. And then and then in terms of actually producing work that the your your editors want from you that your readers want from you I'm assuming you you knocked out. The print version of our discussion multiple times already, right like here's what life is like inside the bubble. And then what I mean. Now you're now you're just treating it like a normal NBA season and talking about performance in who can't be what, what, what are you not doing that you would be doing if this was a normal NBA season in your in Los Angeles it's I think it's just a much more focused environment and I did as you were talking, I was also thinking about my answer to the last question because I didn't WanNa make any WANNA leave the impression that the Lakers clippers aren't helpful I mean. Also been easier than on we're back in L. A. because because there are fewer. Physically there you're not getting I'm not getting crushed by people trying to talk to Lebron James, which is what would always happen in the pre cova days But yeah, I have written like you said I have written what's happening here what's this been like repeatedly repeatedly, I'm probably going to be writing another one coming up soon. was. A little, bit. With a little bit more, a little bit more color from things that I've learned over the last couple of weeks. I have found that people been really interested in even like things that are that unlike that's just normal thing that's happening in my day it's not is not interesting to me but like. But. It's also like this is such an experiment like no, this has never happened before and so I think there's a lot of curiosity about how they're doing in to work a lot of curiosity. Starved for any kind of sports information, right because we just haven't had sports for months. And you're right in the middle of it. So for the players again, follow the tweets and initially the people were complaining about the food, but the food turned out to be okay and. I think everyone would sorta wants the story about the players behaving badly or or wrecking a golf cart or you know sneaking a substance onto the into into campus what's your sense of how they're adapting to it or they sort of have they adapted? They've been here for about three weeks right now at this point, it's not that much longer than like a long road trip have been So I, think we're going to really start to see the impact of of being here and sort of. The opportunity to go stir crazy. I think we're GONNA see that in the next few weeks. But if you're looking for the crash golf cart drunk player story that wait a week or two. Well I, think one of the. Someone was saying yesterday that I to David Griffin Pelicans you the saying that that there's he feels like it was really like the. Sort of the monotony of being here and being here and having to do the same things every day like that, he could see wearing on people but once they started playing games or actually he called it like a shot in the arm because he said like that really helped because finally after four four and a half months, teams are able to play against other teams, and so that was thous- useful for them and he thinks soon, things to break up the monotony will be helpful in players continuing or. Players not being not. Well, for lack of a better way to put it like not popping the bubble you know. Creating a situation where they're gonNA be dealing with something like baseball dealing with right right and then what's how are the Games themselves for the players? Obviously you can't recreate a a a pack, even half full arena, and so what is it like for them playing for? Basically just themselves with themselves and other other players and not for an audience the Lakers are to some degree kind of enjoying. Creating their own atmosphere they've been the loudest team here like in I've haven't watched every team play but I've watched several teams play and in different arenas and I've watched the Lakers in different arenas. They're so loud like they. It's not just it's it's the way they talk to each other on defense. It's the way that they cheer for each other from the bench. The trash talk, you can hear it. There is a very vocal team, and so I think that they are a team that feeds off of their crowd and there are Laker fans at almost every game. They will they play like not just at home on the road going the here the here. Cheer when. They're winning a game in some hot. Some arena you would think would be hostile. So they do feed off of that but I think there's a realization to that they're gonNA have to do it themselves here and they. Really. Like each other like this is a team that somehow like they just have just very get along very well more than a lot of teams do and that's part of what's helped them as part of what's helped them like get through some of the things that they've dealt with this season so. Think either enjoying kind of making fun of now making fun of the atmosphere. But like like joking around about like bill, they'll come out during warm tonight pointed the point at the seats where there's like there would be a crowd normally but there's no crowd and they'll go handed out like that. Just Kinda goofy with them. How do you think that works by the time we get to meaningful games and playoff games and finals games were that sort of atmosphere is is part of the game and and will be gone it's going to. Be Strange. It's going to be strange for them and their I don't think that at that point I don't think you're going to be seeing as much of the joking as much of the like You know. I think I think they'll still have fun with each other but I think the tone is going to be very different. So yeah, it's it's going to be really strange thing for for Lebron who's been to so many finals and who's very comfortable with the tension of a final series he's not going to have that. And sort of when you when you take away away from someone sometimes that's great and sometimes it unbalances them I know this is a long way away. But in theory if the bubble works and this all works and they get to have finals. The NBA is going to be trying to figure out what to do for. End of the year when the new season supposed to start our anyone talking about that who you're bumping into like we might have to repeat another version of the bubble. A few months from now why? Yeah. I asked a few people about that yesterday because because of what happened with the Marlins with all their positive tests relation and if the NBA tries to start on time, they might be trying to. Do something like what baseball is doing and it seems pretty clear that the travel element is what has made their process difficult is what has made their process not a smoothest. The NBA's seems to have been of course, the amid does have problems too but It's nothing like what you're what you saw baseball so. I think that's a big unknown right now I think they're going to see how this goes and get through this but they're gonNA start they're gonNA to have to start planning even before the finals end war next season because it's not gonna be that long after after that weighing on players minds or they're like look I got I got three months of. Of of of games hopefully that I've got to get through and I'll deal with everything else later I. Think it's that I think that's the mentality right now that like how like they have very little control over this and yes, they're worrying but they discerned trying to put it. Yes. They wonder about that but they're trying to put it out of their minds. I apologize for being one of the. People call you up and ask you what life is like in the bump since you have to go. Right. But I appreciate you making time. Good luck be well. Thank you. Thank you. We're done with our sports tripleheader. Thanks to our advertisers. Thanks to our guests. Thanks to Gilani and Joe who make the show and thanks to you guys for listening. We'll be back soon.

Advance your auto at advance, auto parts and participating carquest locations see stores for details. Hello, everybody, and after a brief brief vacation, the local hour with David Samson hosts of nothing personal with David Samson is back David I'm looking at the zoom right now. There's baseball starting today. You still have a beard. Wasn't this part of the whole deal? The MLB dare challenge will end after opening day first pitch, okay, and in no small irony, the weather in C. Tonight. They're supposed to be like a summer nor Easter and I think the game is going to be delayed, not played. Who knows, but I'm going to be heads up barbershop with you go. The marlins barber in the chair at seven Oh eight PM. First pitch thrown beard off at seven. Oh nine does the ceremonial first pitch from Dr Anthony Fauci count. Now. No, it does not by the way. I'm looking forward to that. Because if he actually does the first pitch that means Max. Scherzer is heated up and ready to roll all right so baseball looks like we. Still chances can all nuked. is returning today I. have loaded up my first fantasy baseball team since you traded away, Josh Johnson and Mark Burleigh. I am giving this sport in honest. Try I need to educate myself on it I drafted a team filled with ninety nine percent. Of New names to me. They might have might as well been create a players, MLB show but I am here I. Am Learning I. Am no longer going to be woefully. Ignorant I'm no longer going to actively root against this sport. Rising tide lifts all boats. Let's go baseball your thoughts with baseball being back so far you know. I've watched the MLS David. And I'm so happy. I. I watched the MLS and aesthetically not enjoyable look I. DON'T WANNA be European soccer snob Guy Mls isn't. Doesn't hold a candle to that. Sell a of football. I almost said the F. Word there a football, but you know you take soccer. This is a dilute sample what you're watching Orlando sweaty. The Games are hard to watch. The camera angles are atrocious. And I watched it, and I realized. Did MLS play themselves with this bubble? Because MLB's out here, traveling to each game, it seems as though the Cova numbers are starting to stabilize within that sport. They have a pretty good protocol. It would seem with their I l. and they're Kobe. Designations did Major League Baseball. Get this right by not doing a bubble. I think it's way too early to say and I think Major League baseball will end up in a bubble come playoff time I think the concern that baseball had is. You can't do a bubble with thirty teams over the course of sixty regular season games, and then a month of playoffs. It's just not sustainable you're in which by the way where would it be so? So you've got the NBA Orlando. They got a bunch of courts. You've got mls a bunch of football fields, so there's opportunities where exactly what the bubble be like in Miami. Would they go to La and play Angel, Stadium and Dodger Stadium or New York can play. Yankee Stadium and Citi Field I'm just not sure how that could actually work where there'd be fifteen games day. which is what there is in baseball sixty games in like sixty six days. Where would it be like at university school in Davie while billy brought this up on the national show, initially, when remember major? League Baseball was the first sport to try out the notion of a bubble now with NBA doing it and mls doing it seems like we were probably a little too harsh on that idea of major league. Baseball's Arizona was a good place to do it. They have the infrastructure with all the spring. Training Sites Got Multiple Games a day there. Were we too hard on league baseball with that initial idea. Now I think what baseball realized is that the in and out of clubhouses is very complicated. Why is it that the Blue Jays aren't playing in Pittsburgh? The governor gave a reason that to me was completely wrong, except he got to the right conclusion I just WanNa clarify you said. Why are the Blue Jays not playing in Pittsburgh? They are playing in Pittsburgh there now playing in Toronto. They're not playing in Pittsburgh. I know okay. Welcome back to the show second i. read all sorts of articles. Saying that was a Pittsburgh Blue Jays. They're not playing at PNC now. It's done what did. On three. At this, this is the continual education of me. Learning baseball again. The Toronto the Toronto. Blue Jays the Pittsburgh and PNC park. That thing is off the table. We were talking about that yesterday. It's now eight look I saw was never official, and if you were watching nothing personal, you've heard me say there's no chance of it happening yesterday. The governor came out and said that they are not allowing the Blue Jays to play in Pittsburgh. How about that early have no place to play? They are going to be nomadic currently. David season starts today. Yes it does hold on. Yes, it does. So. There is a major league baseball team that has no idea where they're playing and I'm just learning about this. This seems wrong and unfair to those players look. There's all sorts of unfairness in regards to playing in Canada and the United States in a sport that all the other teams or American teams it's it's a bit of a pain you've spoke to how some of the finances work out. They get paid in American dollars. At least that's the case in in the NBA and that's the case in Major League Baseball I. See you nodding along. This team is going. Going to be on the road, the entire sixty game season that is so unfair to them and their families, so they're looking right now to see if they can find another place to play I've said from the beginning. It's GONNA end up being buffalo, but the players. WanNa play in a major league facility. which if I were with the Blue Jays I'd sit down at the players, unlike what Marc Shapiro the president in the Blue Jays did they sat down in the player, said we a major league facility. They said Great. We agree we're GONNA. Do that for you. But they're making a promise that they can't necessarily keep. Because there's no guarantee that any professional facility will host two teams as a matter of fact, I think it's not going to happen so the two options. Are you playing a minor league facility? And the players said we're major leaguers. We don't WanNA. Play a minor league facility and I would have said your major leaguers wherever you play. If you plan a high school field, you're still major leaguers playing baseball, so the other possibilities they stay on the road for sixty days, but they get to bat last in what would have been there? Thirty Home Games, which is drew advantage now. Is it dangerous to be on the road? That much more does it put their health at double the risk because they're traveling that much more. The. Answer's Yes, and that's a big concern that baseball has, but during the course of the season. Mike you're GONNA see a lot of weird stuff you've never seen you're going to see games. They're canceled locations that moved. There's going to be a lot of flexibility in the teams that can deal with that. The best are the ones we're going to be successful. Yeah, this is this is. This is more natural selection than it is. Actual sport all right, so let's say on the bluejays here. Why did the governor rule against the Blue Jays plan and PNC park. So his answer was, he didn't want people more people. Coming in and out of Pennsylvania is view. was that if there's thirty extra home games that means that there's more opportunity more teams, more people and that was. That was Canada's reasoning to. They didn't want all these Americans coming across the border into a country that has more in check Though by the way, so they didn't want what Canada's set is. If the if you Toronto go play in America. If you come back, you have to quarantine fourteen days. I know there's all sorts of levels of bureaucracy, and there's red tape, but I imagine the Senate Catch Major League baseball by surprise, but it kind of felt like it did because it's so late in the game for decision like that to be made. What do you know about sort? Sort of plane bees that were made by the Toronto. Blue Jays. Did this indeed catch major? League Baseball SURPR- by surprise the way it looked so what baseball will tell you is that it didn't catch them by surprise, but I also know that Pittsburgh. They made a big deal of hosting the Blue Jays and they did a whole statement saying that they're doing this for the community to bring in business extra nights in hotels, extra meals at restaurants and. And Luba reads and all the other things that would add the local economy, which is obviously hurting in Pittsburgh, which makes sense that said baseball should never have allowed the possibility because they're trying to keep thirty teams, Elfi and just picture the logistics imagine you in your studio at the clevelander where you finish your our your show, and then all of a sudden another group comes in, and they do a show. Then another group comes in, so it has. Has to be your student would have to be cleaned in between. You have to be okay putting on the headsets again doing the microphone. All of those things where I think Mike. If you were honest with me, you say I. Don't want anybody using my microphone headsets. No, you're. You're absolutely right. When he put it that way I absolutely understand why they wouldn't be sharing facility. You mentioned them traveling. They need to have a home base because increased travel. Means increased risk, but aren't they already traveling all the time? If their home is Toronto, who cares if they have a satellite city? That's not really their home because they're living out of a suitcase. Anyways, so that is obviously we buried the lead. If you can't plan Toronto the theory is that the players who play for the Blue Jays don't live in Toronto, but they come they get a seat. They get a home for the season whether it's an apartment or a hotel. That's where the players are for an entire major. Major League season. That's the case it. Let's say in Miami very well. Miami's actually interestingly different more players live in south Florida all year long, so they've permanent residences, but take a team like the brewers where I would bet you and I have no information. This is anecdotal. There's not one member of the brewers whose permanent home is Milwaukee Wisconsin nothing against Milwaukee. Love it, but what they do. is they rent an apartment for the year? So if you're playing in buffalo in theory, what the Blue Jays would do as. As rent an apartment for the year, but the year is only two months. So what would it be ed be are be O- or VR be. Would they do a hotel? But then what do you do at the families? If it's a one room sweet, it's a complicated issue when you're on the road for sixty days I think he kind of address it by using my studio as an example if they're going to different hotel rooms every three days. That's increased risk whereas if they did have a base camp and And were assured. No one else is entering this domicile, but you then there's less risk there obviously. Is there a need for the satellite city to be close to Toronto in proximity kind of seems like that was what they were going for. Could they look at I know the Texas Rangers Old Ballpark. It has been sort of reformatted a little bit for high school football, but there are facilities older ballparks that are still standing that I. Guess the Toronto Blue Jays just the Blue Jays at this point could explore right. They need to be on the east coast. Because the whole point of the baseball season, which again makes no sense to me is done by geographic, so the nationally yeast is playing the American League East in the national. League, East. That's it so there's not a lot of travel. You're staying in the northeast corridor. Would I said to someone the other day is once. You're on a plane. What's the difference? If you're flying? Time is ninety minutes or three hours. I'm just I'm just curious I mean I've I haven't been on a plane in months, but I used to travel all the time. Once you slept to the airport. Get through security. Open yourself up to the rigors of travel, the inconvenience of travel the concern of the spread of covid. Once you're on the plane and this is not commercial travel. It's charter travel. You have social distancing by definition on. On the plane, air is recirculated way better than it is in an indoor restaurant through air conditioning where it's old, they are being recirculated airplanes. Do it right so I never understood why they were doing the schedule the way they did claiming. It's because they don't want players on a plane for too long I. Guess Wear and tear. your congesting a lot of games together. The whole thing is going to feel like an adrenaline rush, and if a player can just. Just be on a plane for a ninety minute flight as opposed to you know a four hour flight I guess that preserves. Their bodies have been good NBA studies on by Tom. haberstroh about the rigors of travel, and what that does to an athlete's body, granted much different demand on an athlete's body in basketball than there is in baseball You mention a great point about the Blue Jays needing to be on the east coast. I get that and also their reasonable. Reasonable TV contracts to keep in mind there, too. I am very confused. At times a major league baseball there is such a wide lane for Major League Baseball to dominate the mid afternoon games even morning games because the sport that you can play in the morning. They do it all throughout a you earlier start. Times are commonplace in minor league. Baseball Parks and even baseball on the weekends e even on the weekends. It seems like they're going for later time slots. Later than usual. They're going to be going up against the NBA directly. Even the NBA knows to play some games granted there in a bubble, and the facilities demand that they have some earlier start times. Why in God's name is Major League baseball going after these prime time slots? Is this just to appease regional partners? It's one hundred. That's it so it's a very simple answer. It's called money so the way the schedule works is it's based on your TV contract and your TV? TV partners have a desire to get as many games in prime time because they want to win the prime time windows now enormous seasons in the summer. They're not going up against the NBA. After June or the NFL before September, so the reality is that baseball has its own windows during the summer. That's why you don't see more afternoon games. Also when there are fans, you always prefer night games during the week because people don't come during the day because they're at work. On weekends, you have more afternoon games, and you will see those afternoon games on Saturdays and Sundays as usual, but in terms of mid week afternoon games. It's only when it's necessary for travel because you lose it the gate when fans were allowed and TV networks do not like it, and you meet with your TV network. They're your biggest client. Picture your biggest sponsor on Lebatardshow. Would you do something purposefully? That would upset your biggest sponsor by by lot. You just wouldn't so. TV partners are our biggest clients, so we talked to them and say what can we do to make? You WanNa keep giving us as much money as you do. Yeah, but people aren't commuting to work in the same fashion. Obviously, everyone knows the unemployment situation in this country. Did anyone sit? Down with these regional TV people and said Hey, you might be able to own a window in a fashion that you might not if you're going up against Lakers clippers. So the other side of that however is that while people are home and not commuting, just look at the world podcasts. In general podcast numbers are down in the reason they're down is that people are not commuting? People are not in the gym, which is the most common place that listening to their podcasts and when your home let me give you. An example of people who are at work versus people are at home all right. I'm at work. I'm looking at my desk I've got my earphone in. I'm listening to a podcast on pretended to work whenever the boss walks by, but I'm sort of on on Google. I'm doing some online shopping and that's your workday. When your home you've got maybe kids in the background to want your attention. You've got a significant other Hussein. What are you doing on Google? Kids crying needs a diaper change. You're listening to a forty five minute podcast. Get off the podcast and start paying attention to your family, so all those different things are adding up, so it's not as though that viewership during the day. Most people two o'clock aren't gonNA. Say Kids get in the pool or kids? Just entertain yourselves. I'M GONNA go wash three hour baseball game credits league baseball, four, beating the NBA to the punch under the NBA started their exhibition games about we got games that matter beginning today hopefully in major league baseball. It seems as though they miss an opportunity by knocking back sooner I think everyone knows that because they could have really owned a couple of weeks get. The viewer invested no these players to build up their fantasy teams to bet on the sport and all of a sudden. You have seized on this opportunity. I wish that they were a network. I understand the regional TV contracts, but they have a rights agreement with ESPN. What wouldn't SPN tried to push. Push some of these games an earlier time slot. They have MLS games going on in China. Nights determined a lot by the weather in Orlando. As you see, I mean it's I feel so bad for these players playing Magin. Can we just talk about that for a minute? Can you imagine playing outdoors right now in Orlando I just I can't even fathom it the only time I've ever seen kits stick to players. Bodies in this fashion is when. When Kumar had a Puma had an unbelievably flawed kit designed during the two thousand six World Cup where people were essentially wearing loose leaf sheets of paper that would just stick to their bodies. I feel really bad for these players in the as they don't have an MRI machine in that bubble. If they need to get an MRI, they need to go to the hospital and then quarantine for three days and wait for all the testing to come back. Back the NBA. Allow the MLS in the bubble because that goes against the whole idea of a bubble as feel really bad for the MLS players, it's a diluted product and players are getting gas, and you see very sloppy fouls or a lot of the reds I've seen most of the red in this competition David and it's usually just get me the F of here. I am tired later. You saying they do it on purpose. Oh their latest. Red Cards so they can get out of the game I am saying the vast majority outside of you know the occasional era thinking, and or incidental is going in for a tackle, and I just miss time at the other guy made me into this. The vast majority of the red cards that I've seen have come later in the game, and it's a dude. Absolutely drenched in sweat in a way that you haven't seen like. He's out of a pool and he's just kept me the Gada here. It is hot, man. I I'm tired. To his coach though. It screams off the television because someone sends out a ball over the top on counter, and you have this winger with much better speed, and you have some backline defender that's like thirty five, plus like Jesus Christ man. I can't do this. Just red cards and I feel so bad. I have to wait. Are you sticking to your story here? Your story is that players get red cards instead of telling their coach gassed and they want. Want substitution well no I think they're out of substitutes. At this point, remember you are limited there five, so they were allowing more now because of the the war, but you're still cap you, so you have five substitutions. You still have eleven spots, so the majority of your team's going to be on that field for all ninety minutes, and with water breaks and everything sometimes closer one hundred minutes. You're seeing and you see this a lot. When it isn't a million degrees outside frustration thous- I'm tired I need to stop this counter and I don't have the wind or the pace. Keep up with this guy. I'll take the red better to take the red than to give up. The actual chance at this is going to create I. Think you're seeing a lot of that. have any results impacted by this because? Because, there's a red. Don't you have a Don't you play? Isn't there a power play yet? You're up a man. We or have have games scores and results change because a player just to said you know what I'm done. Oh, absolutely, absolutely. You imagine this in the NBA. Where one of the starting five says you know what I'm tired I. DON'T WANNA play anymore? I Von Four. They're not coming out and saying it they don't need to. It's very self evident when you actually watch. The nature of those vows. I WanNa talk to you about rights. Fees. I got into a bit of a A diarrhea take on soccer and its coverage on ESPN ESPN does have an MLS contract, but they don't have the big TV contracts CBS credit to you and your network. You got the Champions League in. That is the the crown jewel. Followed by Premier League. If we're talking just club competitions, obviously, everybody wants to world. Cup when ESPN has World Cup. UC's wall to wall-to-wall coverage and ESPN doesn't quite wealth Shane that they don't do it more often. ESPN does have a very big major league baseball contract yet. When I was growing up the coverage on sports center in the daytime programming. They talked a lot more baseball than they do. Now. You would think because you have these rights. Fees and ESPN's ratings have obviously taken a hit without sports I'm talking to you right now. and soccer is responsible for some of the biggest numbers on the network in the month of July because it's the only live sporting event. Why has there been such a sea change from the daytime? Daytime programming of these broadcasts partners in regards to how much or how little they're talking about the national pastime. Well. If you think about it, what what ESPN does, is they spend a Lotta time with the NFL and they spend a lot of time, but you're seeing their NFL package. Their package ESPN is not looked at when you think baseball. The first network you think is probably Fox because they do the world series. Then you've got Turner who does an. ESPN has a window and national window of a Sunday night game. But when you ask why they don't get more afternoon games, because they don't have exclusive rights to games other than that Sunday window now if there's expanded playoffs, could espn bid for that and get more where you do as a network is you use your ancillary programming to buttress the place where we have the largest investment, so you want your daytime shows dealing with the NFL and talking about the NFL because they spend a lot of money. SPN doesn't the NFL people are watching. People are gambling on it. NFL's just a bigger TV property. ESPN wants to be like the kinks right? They WanNa give the people what they want. I think that it's a self fulfilling prophecy. The less you speak about something, the more it gets ignored, and then you create what you want to avoid and many of the networks are doing that. The second reason Mike is the start of MLB network. That's a lot of things changed when NFL network. If you think about it for the biggest sport, there is no one watches NFL network. People will say they do, but they don't NBA network that Sneha. MLB network is different. There's games on it. There is daytime programming. There are talk shows, and that gets a lot more traction a lot more attention, so ESPN at some point said you know what we're not gonNA fight this fight. WE'RE NOT GONNA go encounter program during the day against what you're doing were just going to do NFL. An auto policy from state farm gets you collision coverage and this radio ad from state farm coverage of this beloved ninety six. Gone. is going. For more coverage is state. Farm! Dot Com. For businesses around the world. Today isn't a restart. It's a rethink that's why they're partnering with. IBM to change, how they from supply chains to customer service. Let's put smart to work visit. IBM DOT COM slash smart to learn more. That's an excellent point because if I'm a baseball fan, and I want to hear baseball talk, there's really only one place I can go to, and they'll be network if I'm an NFL fan or an NBA Fan I can tune into ESPN and here's Stephen Smith. Talk about it Ad Nauseam. I'm not going to get perhaps even more of a perceived level of expertise from some of the more famous personalities in sports media than I. would at NFL network. Network is an excellent point as a soccer fan. There's really no daytime American programming that I can go to to get my soccer. Fix on just begging for mainstream media to pay a little bit more attention to it, but if I'm a diehard baseball fan much like if I'm a die, hard golf fan, I go to the Gulf network. I can go to the network and I can absolutely get my fill of insight and analysis and I'm absolutely. and ESPN just sorta seeds the floor because we got college football three major sports in this country. Don't let anybody tell you different. It is NFL football. It is the NBA and it is college football. Those are the very three cleared King's College. Football is not really considered there because it's an amateur sport air quotes, but those are the three big ratings grabbers and ESPN treats it as such as ninety percent of our daytime programming is just designed curated to make you watch one of those three live events, because that's how we make our number and make our sponsors happy. By the way doesn't that make perfect sense what you just said. Espn you just answered your own question perfectly by the way I. Think you should start a soccer network well. I think I'm I'm very curious to see no one. It's a bad time to start any sort of network I don't have the plug next, but CBS it's very curious to see how much they lean into their soccer coverage. Because this is a massive massive, writes agreement that CBS sports network out, you finally become a destination for something outside of Bull. Bull writing so I'm very curious to see how much you lean into it. How much everyone raises their game? How much the network forces some talent, maybe even nothing personal to pay a little bit more attention to Champions League soccer. I know when F S One was launching. We had Katie Nolan on our Chelsea podcast and she hosting a show that was on. On after Champions League in the network exact said. Hey, you have to learn these teams. You have to talk about that stuff at ESPN. You're never going to get that. Sadly until people retire the old guard, soccer's numbers aren't good age fifty, plus David, the on air, talent and the producers and the decision makers and the executives. They don't care about soccer and. And at their age. They don't care to learn, so you're going to need ten twenty years ago by for people that are closer to my age. That really embraces for that TV numbers actually reflect a genuine sustainable business model to actually get in those positions of power I. of course. We've been saying that about soccer for a long time in the United States. I do eight years. This happened array. Yeah, but I do think that there is a sea change. If you're of a certain age if you were north of forty, the vast majority of people not just don't pay attention to soccer. They actively hate soccer. There is a great disdain for soccer within American like. Bush moment If you're of an age, soccer is a joke to you. It is boring as all the cliches that you've ever heard of it, and that's not to say. There are plenty look. There are plenty of younger Americans that don't give a shit about soccer, either that think all the same things, but I think that they're indoctrinated because their parents also hated. HATED SOCCER! I think that there is a obviously growing interest. The younger television demographic numbers bear this out, and when you get to a certain age, group and people are retiring and moving on from there broadcast careers. You might have a bit of a sea change in regards to how people approach this the on air talent. You can't see Manet in next. Kelemen About soccer, they talk about combat sports. We have rights to Combat Sports, and that leads into some of their strengths but Mike. Greenberg isn't gonNA. Talk about the run that Christian Pulisic had these are talents that just simply never had to pay attention to soccer and only talk about soccer on their shows when there's a World Cup match because he has the rights to it. So one of the things that I'll tell you a story. Is that I was? I was one of the people you are describing not into soccer at all I didn't have open. Disdain stained Ford at all. I just found nothing game to be boring and I never watched it. I grew up in New, York when the cosmos were there and I and Palay and there was a chance messing. And I just didn't get into it I was into the NBA and NFL so then. I got into the World Cup. In, so this is about how to teach someone how to get someone engaged. So then I started watching the World Cup and I got very interested, because it was super exciting because there was something on the line, it wasn't a regular season game. There's winners. There's losers, but I wasn't into the round. Robin. Part of it I was only into it. The elimination stage then four years later I got into it at the round. Robin stage now the next World Cup I'm into it from minute one in now I've started the process of paying attention to Chelsea because of you, and my in my loyalty to you, and so it's slow, and you're right. I'm of the demographic at fifty two years old. where I can I be changed, the answer is yes, in the way it happens is slowly and I'm in that process. I love soccer now, but now I've got to learn more about it more about I. Know about the business and understand that, but I never would have known that Liverpool held the Cup this year. It just never would have I. don't have the nomenclature right all the time. I don't have the exact positions and how it works, but when I went to a and I told you this when I went to Liverpool menu in Liverpool at Anfield. It's the greatest sporting event I've been to in my life. That's it. It! That's arguably the fiercest rivalry in English premier league soccer, going back decades of hatred Oh. That must have been an electric atmosphere. It was incredible because what I saw was emotion, passion and I. It depressed me is really what happened at the time I was still president. The marlins and I thought it is what it could be like. This is what it would be to put on a game where people care in this at this level. How do we battle this up and bring? The United States I came back met with the marketing department met with the Sales Department and they looked at me like I had three is. You put on a very positively reviewed world baseball classic, and you and Jeeter always hearken back to the days of the wbz saying we gotta bring that atmosphere over here, and that closely resembled some of the soccer. Crowds that you see out there. Why is that so difficult to replicate day in and day out with the Miami Marlins? Well it's difficult to replicate that for thirty teams on a Tuesday in August so I. Understand that you want to be anti Miami. Believe me I. Get it, but you've got to go to Cleveland Kansas City. There are maybe four cities where on a random Wednesday. There's thirty thousand people in the stands, and even then it gets quiet in baseball once in a while. There's a big cheer some big noise. That's why this piped-in crowd noise for games. This season without fans is driving me insane duty. It's bad home at all right so I as I mentioned. I'm diving back into this and I've seen a couple of summer camp games and baseball funny enough plays very well without fans in the stands because guys, if you tune into an Oakland, A.'s game, Thursday at ten fifty PM, eastern or many people there, I'm not hearing a lot of sounds coming out there, so the pipeline sounds like what is a baseball game ever sounded like this during the regular season. This is absurd. I like here in the. The crack of the Bat. I like hearing the sounds of the game i. don't like the home of a see that we can get rid of that, but I I think it plays well, and aesthetically there are so many camera angles in that in that sport, in which I'm so used to not seeing a single person in a seat that it's not at all a shocking sight. I think baseball actually is a pretty decent made for television product David so when we would pay per the stands in Miami. This is something I. Don't know that we've ever talked of. It is pretty funny what we had in our office is we knew all the camera angles, and then we knew which sections. Of the seats could be seen from the different camera angles on Fox, and so we would focus on making sure that people were in those sections. Only so if you go to the ballpark and you're at the game, you'd see a pocket of people and no one else anywhere and coincidentally might I add the pocket of people is where the cameras are in the angles. Because you want it to look like two people, watching that may be a cool place to go. There's people there and then of course. Course you walk into the stadium and they're all like clustered in five areas process over results argument if I've ever heard one because. If you ever watched the Marlins on baseball, you would say that was their strategy. Because I can't tell anytime. There's a righty pitcher on the mound. I see like I can count four people in the camera shot. There's only so much you can do right right. There's only so much giving away tickets ice think the panthers used to do it a lot under your mark. Away tickets there were times during my time. Where certain seasons we give away a lot of tickets other seasons, we just you know, make up the attendance and buy the tickets ourselves and throwing away the problem. When you give away, tickets is people. I always thought. Wouldn't come with a free ticket? Maybe they'll buy a hotdog. Maybe they'll buy. Shirts doesn't work that way. You have to give away a hundred tickets to get one person to actually show up to the game. It's very bizarre. The mentality I would think hey, if it's free, it's me I'm going, but it turns out that with TV and with the way technology is, and this is going to happen in many sports. Watching it's just much more fun. Yeah, well, credit to the NBA for really leaning into their situation granted that sport is conducive to making it. Look like it's an an a high high tech television studio. Those scrimmages looked really impressive with video boards. I wish other sports do it, but I don't think other sports can do it quite the way that NBA does isn't it looks fake to you I felt like they were in a television studio. Plants Finds A. I found it to be and I found the lighting to be a little dark when I was watching. The Games didn't feel like it was as light as it needed to be. At least from my standpoint, but it was so good. See the players playing when I was shot watching the first night scrimmages last night. Just take the heat as an example. It looks like they hadn't been gone for four months. there was some sloppy some turnovers, but from shooting standpoint from a freshness standpoint I was very impressed because one of the things I'm worried about with sports. Returning is the quality of play and very valid concern. If you're watching the MLS because that's not the top level. Football could be watching on television and I think the product is absolutely suffering because of their situation right now. Are you upset with Inter Miami for not winning a game? Does it really matter when you're an expansion team that your own five people are losing their mind Sierra Miami. Why is that? Well because you kind of feel like you got sold the bag goods and you feel like you were promised. Stars and outside of Pizarro and Pizarro's not a crossover star with. If you follow major league soccer, he's very clearly one of the top fifteen players in that league, but he's not going to get you to a ball game. Oh, my God I got Rudolfo Pizarro. They they're lacking star power. They are not fun to watch play kind of like a scumbag grand of soccer right now. They're not well organized it. Isn't that bad I although you can't do worse than own five in your family matches. You could be losing these games by multiple goals. They've lost each one of these games. And Goal I knew with the buying, and I just spoke to my season ticket rep and I'm still trying to get clarification because I. I have to season agreement, and they're like well. Just roll over this year two thousand, twenty one. I'm like yeah, but what about twenty twenty two can you get back to me? I'm still waiting on callback into Miami. I knew that I wasn't going to be watching. You know Barcelona in their prime I knew I'd be watching a style of soccer that was distinctly American and mls soccer sticks out because it's very different from some of the other club leagues, it has its own style, but I'd be like so what I got beers I can sing along. I have this crazy atmosphere. Because MLS, Games are superfund, actually attend because those are super passionate fans. It's like that wbz crab that you had you rip that away from me. Any GIMme a bad product to watch on top of that I need a win. I need a star. I need something to keep me invested into the season, because it's going to be abbreviated and they already seen out of it. One of the worst possible launches I've ever seen from a franchise ever. The only thing that's gone right for this franchise is the logo. So if you want your money back, no, no, no I. I believe I'm huge ally. I want to grow the Game I. What does that accomplish me taking my money away from a game that I love that WanNa. See grow in this. -aseball Mike and I don't feel like it needs me I don't feel like they're enough public allies. This is why this is. Actually I am paying attention to Major League Baseball. It's good of all sports are pay attention to you and I can't in good faith. Try to be an ambassador for a sport. Even though I hate the way that comes off, but it is I'm gonNA. I'm certainly an ambassador for Chelsea Football Club here in the United States making people aware of it. Thank you so much for following Chelsea. It's a big fat mission accomplished for what I'm setting out to do. You're the only reason I appreciate that now it's great. Again this warms my heart because that's what I'm going for. How can I be this guy? That's like Hey, I know you're probably bored by this in the past. Give this a chance, please. I'm begging you. There are so many exciting things going on here I. Know It's confusing. I know there's like five competitions going on simultaneously I. Know that you're I've lost much of the audience even talking about it this much with you on this episode. But how can I be that guy? Try Not to be snobby. I understand everything that you think is soccer fans and. End of the coin be utterly dismissive of baseball. The check out on segments when Billy's talking about the Miami Marlins. How can I do that? That makes me a hypocrite. I'm not GonNa do that with baseball. Anymore I used to do that with golf. I used to do that with NASCAR I am trying to embrace the positives and all these sports listen to. To people that know what they're talking about and learn about the game, because that's what I'm asking my audience. That's what I'm asking of anybody listening to this right now. Please give me a chance. I'd be some sort of asshole if I was like now. That sport socks that sports boring can't do that. That's that's not that doesn't help. Accomplish my mission. I'm so happy here at you feel better like that was very impassioned. I've felt like. Preaching I'm just curious because you've been on vacation. You've been home quite a bit more than normal. How do you feel right now like are you? Is your heart racing a little bit? Because that was passionate in a way that people will will resonate with people, because Luke, warm and I don't think people realize unless they've been listening to the show for fifteen years. Your hatred and anger toward baseball was so significant that it wasn't disdain, right or contempt. It was actual visceral hatred. Yeah, yeah, what you're saying. Is that now two thousand twenty of all years? This is the moment where you're going to pay attention. Do you know who's playing at ten eight tonight? This is the giants and dodgers. Right yes all right I got. I got Walker Bueller on my fantasy team. Dot Him. You know that he is one of the three bs now in Los, Angeles Bellinger, Bueller and Yeah and the hope is remember the last team that had the killer bees. Yeah, the about. This is when I last watch baseball. It was Bijou Beltran Derek bellwood occasionally get in there. Carlos Beltran headed unbelievable playoff run, and then all of a sudden. We made him to kill our Glenn Berkman. Yeah like all the killer bees, so the dodgers have A. Buehler's a great pitcher. He's the best pitcher on that staff. They lost review to the blue. Jays who's now the Blue Jays number one starter. Starter and Clayton Kershaw obvious hall, of Famer but he so old now that he's not their best pitcher. You Got Buehler Buehler, yeah Buehler Buehler. Let me tell you. Can I run my team by you? Real quick? Because I don't know any of these players my fantasy team name is a Kunia Matata and I have bueller. Ver- LANDER CLEVEN JER CARRASCO from Cleveland Gallon from Arizona Wheeler from Philadelphia. Some dude named fried from Atlanta which that's not a great name for Senator Oh. It's read spelled fried. Frayed. Oh, well, if I were pitcher, I would also correct people saying no, it's free, not fried. He men is a WHO's a closer from Detroit. Now I don't know a lot about baseball but I know that banking on a closer to get saves with the Detroit Tigers is probably not a great choice of strange. She's GonNa maybe get five saves the whole year because they may not win more than five. Top Line closer in Major League Baseball in the sixty game season's GONNA to eleven. So gimme the five. Oh, squeak across the Finish Line Marquez from Colorado, and this dude Kella who presently has a corona virus. Yeah. That's a problem, but I like I like your pick of the diamondbacks. Juneau's Zach. Gallon was a Marlin that why you drafted him. The marlins traded him no I had no idea so he was on the Marlins. Marlins traded him for a very top end prospect I believe that trade was jazz his home, which is one of the great based on names of all time he's in the in the Marlins, minor league system now, but Zach Gallon is performing pitcher who could be toward the top of the rotation on a team that could actually make the playoffs in Arizona. That is a great. Lineup Kare Co is a feel good story. You know he's coming back and hopefully can do well, but is your name a Kunia Matata because you also have a KUNA on your team so I had the number one overall pick and I named my team that but Okeydoke them. Everyone just assumed a Kuni Matata. They're taking a Kunia right now. I took Yelich. Took yellows with the number one overall pick also bolt strategy by me I presently have four players that have the corona virus on my team. That just fell to me that I was like I gotTA. I gotTA. Take Dosier and meadows. For businesses around the world, today isn't a restart. It's a rethink that's why they're partnering. IBM to change how they from supply chains to customer service. Let's put smart to work visit. IBM DOT COM slash smart to learn more. Awesome matters is a great player. He'll come back, but having corona virus. Listen everybody in your league. We'll have a player who ends up missing time because of Corona Virus I think that makes that's going to happen. While in the NBA bubble has come out in an MLS. They do a release every day. No positives, no positives. All's great. It's not gonNA happen in MLB. Because by definition, there is travel and more exposure. I think it's great that you're doing fantasy and the reality of baseball always attracted me more than the fantasy side, but just having the engagement of fantasy and gambling brings an entire new demographic to baseball, and people are Jonesing. What is this company? That's giving one hundred dollars back. To everybody in their account spending eighty million dollars to imagine fantasy fantasy daily, Phoenix gambling site okay and i. read a quote that made me smile. Which is, they said? We will cover a hundred dollars of your losses. It made me laugh because it's like telling your customer, we will pay for your hospital visit when you get botulism from eating our food. Why would I be eating your food to begin with? That's the thing with gambling and I never understood because generally. You'RE GONNA lose, aren't you? Yes, well, I am going to look I'm not proud of this. I got hot tips. I'm proud to report. While not to report I went three zero in summer camp overs. Tips out, tell be grabs, replied I. AM fully prepared and and know this going into it that I'm going to lose some units on major league baseball this season. It is a down payment on educating myself I. Need to have some skin in the game to be able to follow the sport along. That's it. It's not like college football. It's not like pro. Pro Football. It's not like soccer for me. I need to have either fantasy or bedding and baseball's case Anita have both for me to be invested I. Think I speak for a surprisingly large amount of people when I say that it's not one of my you bet on the other sports on Nfl College football and NBA David Dog I. Bet on everything. On tennis. But you need that to be invested in the NFL. You just said that you need it to be invested in baseball. Masking that you need. I don't need it for American football, college or pro. I don't need for the NBA I. Don't need for soccer I enjoy those I honestly I don't need it to watch the Florida Panthers but in baseball I am trying to get back into baseball. Strangely enough I still don't feel connection of the Miami Marlins I would feel connection to the Florida Marlins I would think if were the owner and he's doing media appearances, but I don't feel a connection and. And you listen to his media appearances I. Haven't I've just seen that. He's done it I haven't had time. Can you tell me about it well if you just watch the one from last year and one from the year before he's still talking about how it was a train wreck in the old days, the old administration, how he had to change the culture, and how he has expectations and no patience, and when you think he's going to get over this. I think well He. There's no accountability in this market from media to Derrick. He gets past like no one. I've ever seen well out of their excited to talk to Derrick jeeter. It's like if I'm doing if I WANNA, talk about Inter Miami struggles, and I get the opportunity to talk about to talk to David Beckham I'm getting swept away in those is and by how famous David Beckham is and Derek. JETER does the power being Derek Jeter, because if you do listen to his media. It's not really pressed on it that much. There's reason why he's not on this show because I think damn would press them in a fashion that he is certainly not used to. I did get a chuckle out of him. Saying we'RE GONNA have to learn to adapt by playing in a ballpark with no. Yeah I found that to be asa founded in saying that having no fans. This year's the responsible thing to do because of what's happening with virus, and I can only tell you that the way it works in Miami. When we were ever be told if that would have ever happened that we had to play without fans I would have been happier because then. It makes us not look as. As bad as we looked when fans were allowed, or we get to say hey, we're only twenty percent capacity, which to us would be a sellout so so the pressure is off i. just don't like the fact that people give Derek Pass because he's Derek because in the business side. He hasn't gotten a pass it all. He hasn't gotten the naming rights deal or the TV deal don so. Money. You don't give a pass, but the emotion of being in front of your favorite player Hall of Famer. I guess that's the power of it, but if you got interviewed David Beckham. You would be swept up in his eyes, and you wouldn't actually talked to him about some of the things that have gone wrong. I would talk to him about some of the things that gone wrong. Quite frankly I i. This is gonNA. Sound Super Egotist, I think kind of smoke David Beckham out a little bit with a tweet that kind of went viral among mls, followers and MLS reporters were weighing in on it because I noticed. Beckham hasn't posted on social media about Inter Miami throughout this entire terrible start all. Really after own five guess who pops up with Inter Miami shorts given some like words of wisdom and people are like man. You smoke him out I'm like I don't think so but. That world of MLS again egos soaked it sounding horrible. Do you think my voice carries a little bit more weight if I were just all my ass, saying you know fire, Bob soups you know. I'd like you to try to get back on the show I've tried that. This has been a running joke I've tried and failed I do continue to try to Greece the rails in that direction I i. don't crush Inner Miami. It's hard an expansion team during a pandemic, there's a reason why mls push back the starts for all the other planned expansion teams. This is a horrible situation horrible. This is the worst possible way. The launch a team they had. Mean I don't WanNa get into it. We've talked plenty of soccer. Okay, so the way, my impassioned plea to be an ambassador for Chelsea football. Club I've tried to be an ambassador for kingdom, a little known television show that was produced by direct TV at and T. that lasted three seasons, and many people know about it. It actually made its way to Netflix and became instantly a hundred percent more accessible to the masses David. My impassioned pleas you worked in. You gave this series. Try to finish all three seasons. So I I've got eleven. Episodes left because the middle season is twenty episodes. Yeah, so it's already episodes in three years, not ten ten ten. It's ten twenty ten. I'm fascinated by the show. I can't stop now with sports starting. I'm having no not as much time on also training for a long race so I'm running a lot more so all sorts of things that play into it kingdom. You introduce me by the way your your record is one hundred percent in terms of your suggestions. You have very good taste and shows i. never heard of Kingdom. I don't like 'em and now I do. I am watching it now in the real world when I never would've watched it before and. And I'm picturing the characters and the character. The brother, the two brothers Joe One of the Jonas Brothers Nick Jonas is actually an actor who I'm fine to be very sensitive, and there's some mystery behind him in some interesting things about his character, he's phenomenal. Yeah, and I I didn't realize he could ever act there are there are beautiful. There's a Miami connection. Yeah Natalie. Martinez now has his great I'd never heard of her, but she is the perfect Miami character, both as an actress, and as a character on the show, and I just I'm enjoying it and for people who don't want to give it a try, and I've given the suggestion, too many people and it's about sixty forty. Sixty percent of the people will try it forty percent just by definition, even with my recommendation say I'm not gonNA. Give it a try and I can't figure out why they not enough star power just MMA. I don't know why I. It's not an MA show whatsoever. Not An MA show whatsoever although the enemy action that is in it is actually quite good and well produced, but this is a family drama. It's absolutely a family drama, and I really hope people give it a chance because it was a difficult sell for me as well David Samson. The national show. Ready, thank you so much for actually taught. It was refreshing thing talking baseball as opposed to going back in the annals of time. We will do that some. We still need to Jack mckeon partout that I that I need to get to with you and trader. Jack, that was a lot of fun host. Have nothing personal with David Samson. I'm I'm sorry you probably had another review in your mind, but I needed to get to your thoughts on kingdom I desperately wanted. Wanted to hear them I haven't even been texting you about it all that much. Just because I wanted to save my initial reaction for the Air Davidson Great, follow on twitter. Make sure you do that. We will be talking with him on the local hour. When get back from more PTO, I'm sorry that's frustrating to you. Maybe we can fire on up episode while I'm away hopefully. Moving into my house at has all sorts of Kobe delays David. Thank you so much. Take care of yourself.

The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

1:14:30 hr | 11 months ago

Local Hour: Miami Heat

"Zero seven ninety the ticket he weighs in on a contract each Euro Suzuki signed with the Seattle mariners I I am speechless by that contract July two thousand seven then Florida Marlins team President David Samson is asked a question during his regular segment on the Dan Le Batard show on the president of baseball operations for the Astros said quote we have a zero tolerance for domestic violence and violence looted to an assistant GM for the Houston Astros reportedly went to a bunch of female reporters and said so glad we got started cursing five years there's no way before them moment David Samson was always considered as someone who might say anything at anytime after that he became a lightning Rod Astros was quite shocking and then they walked it back but they haven't really apologize to the journalists in question yet who they essentially called Liar's with houses with Champagne I've been despondent clubhouses where there's been tragedy I've been in clubhouses where the issues pame like they're so insanely large but in fact the domestic violence policy of Major League baseball however we're going to give it a second chance to Osuna that was back at the time of the trade after he had all salmon it has put the sea in cluster it has been a misstep from minute one so let's breakdown interesting polarizing figure in the world of baseball and he joins us here on the local hour every week it's Thursday October twenty fourth I'm Mike Ryan WanNa this is the pitcher Roberta Roberto Osuna was traded for by the Astros and this all started don't forget when Jeff Lunar is there not pitching well they're not hitting well and they're not getting great news off the field with distractions other than that it's been a perfect series for the Astros taking these reporters who everytime Osuna check in one of the reporters would put out a hotline for anyone who was experiencing domestic abuse news and it seemed as though is a direct shot at those who are critical of the astros acquiring Zuno who was suspended I believe seventy five games for domestic abuse the initial denial from the esteem desperate to win this series they're doing little things that helped win games and the Astros are doing big things that guarantee losing games they're not playing defense and this is the local reminded me of the two thousand three marlins these nationals of two thousand nineteen I'm so glad we got bleeping Osuna in a game in which I believe he gave up two runs and it seemed as though to those around that situation that he was sort of taught in two zero nothing I I hope you're on Dan it's unbelievable you know what everybody gets what they deserve and I guess maybe that'll be they only matter to certain people in a small niche so I've been a part of all of it but domestic violence and the fact that Hosanna Osuna not Marcello Zoo it's now a former marlins team president he now hosts a podcast called nothing personal with David Samson I actually really want to get into that off-field distraction that you basically take part in domestic violence participate in it but yet everyone lives happily ever after he blows to save Osuna in game six against the he's seen that went wrong for starters and assistant general manager taunting and yelling at a report it's unheard of I've been in clubhouses I've been in celebration clubs live to seventy five games but life went on Justin verlander was very public sane I don't like steroids I don't let you spas and I don't like people who who luxury tax money and more revenue money will have to give but signing I'm sure can't be true there's no way they gave twenty million a year to each your at his age talking in the acquisition criticizing them every step of the way so this was a premeditated tweet meditated sort of attack impose they said the guy who's around the clubhouse he's got a job to do that sort of logistics nature he's a part of the analytics part of of making decisions on the baseball cy and then the astros denied it then they denied it then they did a statement and they had to another statement and then MLB is investigating it's a nightmare causing ripples that they didn't even realize what happened but once the ship sails you can never get the toothpaste back in the tube if I could mix it gives up a home run to lemay you but then now too may hits a home run and they win the series why is the assistant GM yes they're gonNA stand where he is on the ready I would have had to a fired an and I've loved my sister GM's over the years that that is inexcusable intolerable and what is he doing yelling at a female reporter to start with well here's the backstory guys this female reporter has been on the Astros scene written by a crisis pr firm when the assistant GM released his statement unbelievable so I think you let them go during now that day during the series focus off the field for the world series this is a lot like the China tweet if I can say it's two totally different issues but this is someone who is was going on before the game in the clubhouse like what was everybody talking about and that's leading to the national taking a two Oh series lead right now I couldn't agree with you more let's not make a mistake the national immediate termination and I probably argue for cause and not pay him as the rest of his contract here's the problem of what caused it has taken not just the you mentioned the Marlins Oh three team winning the world series and you mentioned being part of Champagne celebrations I'm just curious you're like what memories stick out the most from that Oh three champagne jealous of them because I'm not in them I can't stand the goggles I can't stand the protection of the is the most exciting part that I remember about the celebration by your family by your parents it's everywhere who is this Brandon Taubman guy because all the families have never heard of him at all he's an assistant GM and in celebration who's the craziest on those marlins teams when you guys were doing that There guy I mean Josh Beckett after game six I mean he he can he had a force you've got to fire this guy right now not suspend them not apologize for him not allowed to make a statement that may have been the worst statement I've ever it's just sort of a confluence of events that has led to this narrative and there's no way to escape it now unless they find a way to win for the next five games listen distractions don't make you miss a ball if you're bregman committed error they don't make you hang a slider they don't make you not get hit with runners in scoring position you are totally right but show people that it's not about baseball this is about doing what's right but they didn't do it they missed the chance with all that being said and how do they go forward with this is this gonNa cost that assists in general manager's job it's a fair question it should as the burning feeling in my eyes that didn't go away and you can't see but you can just realize and feel that pain but it's glory and blinders for his players in Chicago but it doesn't work because you're reading everything you're being asked about it by members of the media you're being asked about it at home by your wife drink beer I mean let's just say I mean he can do it and he was so happy and so young and I think I think he was twenty three years old but to me he was Chore Player we counted on who brought us a world series victory and we're shock any beers and and pouring champagne I don't like the celebrations a distraction for baseball in general bad look for MLB during the world series I don't believe that this is something that's actually impacting the results of the game right like vert landers not thinking about that when he's on the mound it's just additive there is there is something that happens in a club house when they're outside distractions this is real where we're keeps add teams and you play okay against the good teams that's the formula it's the bad mediocre teams that occasionally beat the good teams and make you think yourself wow what do you think about this honey and what would you do baby those are all being asked of the players so this is real I guess my larger point is is our outplaying the Astros I'm merely explaining why my view the Astros look like an eighty win team not one hundred seven win team and the distractions are a factor we'd be better 'cause we can beat good teams know the real way to measure is what you do against bad teams the nationals are doing all those things in the dugout and have like little what we're doing forget sign and so yet he would remember twenty handshakes with twenty different guys that had fourteen or fifteen different it's pain it's as though you're prodigy Ahmadi and billions and you like being with Tim Reynolds of the put this stat on my radar curious and I don't want I don't think that they should take away from what the nationals are doing because for lander gets into the seventh inning yesterday and it's a tie game you know like it's not like at the seventh inning all of a sudden he's like wait what frustrating and it only is cool when you're winning when losing teams I don't like celebrating like the Maldonado home run last night when you're down kitschy things at take on a life of their own with their fans whether it's a sunglasses or the baby shark why does what is certain winning teams have these things yells am during games steel Hit and run like we yell at him what the play was so the defense would no but it's the only way that he would ever wins and leagues it's all arbitrary right I think the nationals are in this position just because they got to play the marlins more than everybody else because their teams think about it and if it's not the ninth inning and move along it's like celebrating a touchdown with a photo in the end zone when you're down by twenty eight with five minutes left in the fourth you had the division with the royals and the and the white sox where you're losing both teams losing a hundred they may have had three horrible teams in that division there were so many bad teams order I just don't get it you mentioned signs and you got me thinking now like everyone assumes that Major League teams have the the most complicated you know indepth sign kneecaps that none of that matters what you tell the player is all you're looking for is when he looked for him to touch his hat that are difficult to read and I'm curious if that's true and how simple like how amazed we might be to figure out how simple sometime signs could be you would lose your let has these kitschy little things actually it's pretty much every team there's all of you know like twenty-five guide twenty five handshakes and we would always say how's it possible made so you can't steal signs when the catchers putting down all those fingers very often it's very simple it's the second finger that and different depths that had to be taken I never really understood that and I would talk to him about its he'd say poppy poppy I don't know signs but he'd so it's very both that a player can like Luis Castillo when we had him who I loved great guy however he could never remember the signs he missed every sign where we actually just when he touches his hat the next thing he does is designed so that's the indicator all the other stuff is completely ridiculous and just been an awful team with one of these sticks the Marlins in two thousand twelve had the eye thing that they would do after like every hit that they'd get like the least thing and then they started trading away players who just kept fine how simple signs are so here's what happens the third base coach he is going through all sorts of things he's touching his army shoulders forehead he's touching his crotch and the great guy just he's a truly good person inside and out he's not full of it the way many people are and he just is the sign so they'll go through all those different things one three four to six wiggle wiggle wiggle and it's only it's too because it's the second number twelve to two or thirteen to two twelve to when you hit a home run to make twelve three to get yourself back to the dugout sit down put your catch and equipment back on end and you try to close the doors both literally and metaphorically you try to put headphones on your ears and blinders like Matt Nagy talked about earmuffs and any because I was very intrigued how a wealthy family that is full of dysfunction would play out on the screen and I wanted to know whether just aren't thinking about it they don't they don't remember what it is and that's how you see catchers get crossed up when pitchers myth sign and that's how you see players not run with it is taking up all of my time including middle of the nights and I watched an episode of I can't even tell you it's too much but the point is this three in the morning I can't stop so I need to talk about succession because it is it is true obsession of mine I started watching it from the it looks like Annabel Sanchez is in line for world series start coming up here next what do you make of his career I was surprised to find out he was still in the League and Dude So has pretty election eh let's get into your review for the week and I think for yet another week we're not reviewing movie is that right David I become obsessed now within Jane and they're supposed to or run run they're not supposed to it's it's a nightmare frustrated me for eighteen years I wanNA get into your review in a second but just real quick except as postseason you know yeah yeah no hitter for us as a rookie no six what a great rotation we had back then with Josh Johnson Annabel Sanchez and Dontrelle before chase is in the league and Scott Olsen is not well we need to do a pot on on just Scott Olsen alone but let's get into that we'll save that for another but into adulthood and it is written a perfectly perfectly acted brilliantly and what makes me angry as people are only are we traded him but you know it's a he's stuck around you went through some personal tragedy and and and got himself out of it and he's always had a great arm he always wanted to be accepted by parents and and family and never feeling accepted and how that manifests itself throughout the course of not just childhood your thoughts are the nationals went twenty nine nine against the phillies and Marlins and sixty four and sixty against everyone else and other up two games zero in the world series does his job he stoked throwing ninety two ninety three because he's got great mechanics and he's just built right you you know some players we're not shocked that ended up accession is now getting the love it deserves you've got to the finale of season two to date of all of my binging has been the best season with now because season two was even better than season one so they're late to the Party and acting like oh I've been watching it from the beginning when I know they haven't but I'm still happy stories or production and I was wrong or stars David Knell now there's the line is totally blurred now the biggest stars and Cinema Hell Meryl Streep is doing television it's incredible who says David Rose and I've worn out actually and he was raising money for glad and so I was glad to participate but no I've got listened or not I'd have any understanding or ability to relate to that not the part not the wealth part but the sort of lack of love part and and and the desired watch fleabag I I the quality I always made fun of TV and of these shows thinking that there's no way they could have movie quality writing force finale that I have seen as an episode with the single best scene of any show I've ever seen the or at least where we got to play the orioles and the juice father's time so that this was this was a tanking left and right every division that that that the that the cats are goes that we make it so easy it's like signed for dummy yet for whatever reason players so that's the whole point right that's what got me into I I was I made fun of people who watch big little lies with reese witherspoon and the Co Kidman and wow that is incredible prayed not hyperbole that there is one scene in the finale that's the single best scene of any TV show so you were listening to eat WSB podcasts and you're listening to an episode where Daniel Levy was talking about his thought process for his show and I was wondering if you watched the show wing it on other teams which was like even more confusing this year than the marlins have those glasses those black glasses that like I mean like the so the Marlins the marlins are the bad teams then Meryl Streep and then I watched it and realize my God this is my heaven it's like an eight hour movie so that view these I don't really like sort of and right now the nationals and this is the best record in baseball you gotTa beat the bad teams in sports if you're a good team you beat the except living with yourself which was twenty two minute episodes Shits Creek twenty two minute episodes where you just become part of that family I love stealing a part of the family and part of something feeling of being a part of that that family in that life and I felt that with succession on Sunday night when there was no new episode I felt sort of empty inside I want to get to one last thing with you here and this was put on my radar by a caller named will who was too busy to join us on the air but he's or if you just like the podcast listen to the process people go through I I'm obsessed with Shits Creek I actually for charity bought one of the shirts that Dan Levy wear front of me of every show I've binged from billions to Ozark and I have the higher lists and I'm currently living with yourself and I'm currently starting to what I don't know how the hell this movie got made I don't know why two thousand three was so different than today but the whole premise is matthew mcconaughey freaked out by this family of little people and they use politically incorrect terms and Gary Oldman is playing a little person and it's so I love these shows where I can just get grossed however it sets me up for tremendous disappointment when the shows end I feel sad I missed the characters I missed that I ever seen you've watched four shows at this point when did you make the switch TV by the way because like I saw you tweeted on October ninth I've been wanting to ask you about this for a couple of weeks ain't movie Oscar winner that I actually never heard of ever and I was not young I wasn't old this was right during the prime of my movie ruled by videos and by stories so I have learned like with legal research to triple check things so you send me the trailer I never heard of okay I just want you to watch this and it was a trailer for a movie from two thousand and three call tiptoes starring Matthew mcconaughey Cate Beck and sale and Gary Oldman Dwarf and all the things you can't say doesn't mean it's going to be a bad movie 'cause all of the old movies go back and watch Richard Pryor movies and gene wilder movies or by definition it's an hour and a half worth watching and Matthew mcconaughey hey no matter what floats your boat so I'm in and just because they refer to little people as midgets resor your thoughts on this trailer David Samson so I have now learned because I'm a little more active on social media that I can be is the lone regular sized person in his family a family full of little people and Kate Beckons sale is dating Matthew mcconaughey and she is all too on something that wasn't real I can't believe hey I've never heard of it 'cause I'm in love with Kate back in jail and I thought I've seen all of her stuff be Matthew McCarthy to make sure that you were not setting me up not that you'd ever set me up for anything Mike but I was trying to make sure you weren't sending me up to comment what are you doing that are you gonna go see it again because of four extra scenes I might I really enjoyed that the experience I wonder whether we will react differently of it I watched the trailer before the show today and I see Kate Beckons Dale who looks like that's actually her it looks like Matthew mcconaughey it looks like Peter Watching I'm GonNa see the movie because I love train wreck he can't be as bad as being reviewed because it has kicked back and still in it so Asian of it which was what the original writer and Creator had done and then the the people they fired him and then they brought in people to edit it and make it shorter sausages made I just texted you Ben Affleck's commentary on the Armageddon Dvd please enjoy that it's legendary David Samson we'll talk to you next week and it looks as the day was a big thing when they released DVD's they'd have like the deleted scenes and all that stuff and a lot of DVD's would come out with like commentary by the directors of the stars like talking over the movie would use it the old man with c Thomas Sowell there's so many movies they would never be made today that doesn't make them bad movies so there's actually David also a one hundred and fifty minutes uh-huh so I'm thinking this looks like a real trailer and I want to see this movie wait a minute this can't be a movie so I actually go on IMDB before we started down and watch that to kind of figure out what was going on or did you think that was just kind of gimmicky every single time I'm the guy who watched that vh one or whatever channel it was on with the I actually believe him it's very common it's like in music when there's a first right Bohemian rhapsody that's on everyone's said how can you have a song oh and Peter liked the long version and said that it was good and the short version is the one that was poorly received the long version was a work of art sweat too sweaty for the NFL even if he tells you it's just his name or whatever this place look haunted officials sweat protection of the NFL old spice sweat defense reminding you that rookie Montas sweat has brought sweating to the NFL which isn't cool but the sweat fighting power wants to cut it down that song wouldn't be as good it's definitely possible that longer cuts can be better but how about once upon a time in Hollywood has been released with four new scenes go to go to the theater and see it again it's just to see the four new scenes yes that's what that means Jesse can watch it in a theater in China apparently no of sweat defense spray definitely is he just knocked right in under old spices knows through their draft on TV not cool so this season don't forget that sweaty Monte we might have a world series that might be wrapped up by them although don't count out the Astros I don't know why why do you think it's going to be done by even if it goes maybe the guy loves seeing continuity issues I looked for continuity issues in movies I wanNa know what directors are thinking have seen their belt I don't mind learning how the Great Service with Geico you twenty four seven access to lighting agents Thank you creepy girls. I'm hoping that that report is false because there's no chance for the top of the line of the forget that there's no chance that anybody's worth that and each euro the WHO's lead his team a bold prediction by me money they'll do all right David later Stu gods here this brand to commercial segment has been brought to you by the double's video pop video yeah so my God always I'm always interested in behind the scenes I always read the goof section of I m d to The movies seen it a second time I didn't occur to me that's not a movie you see twice in my opinion so but now I have to because i WanNa know what sports are David do you like I think so too creepy girls stay with that truly frightening Michigan a guy seven it's done by David Samson is the world series done by next week but the next time I speak would be Wednesday so definitely no game Thursday sleep in the car now at the Guy Go which today for twenty four seven access to licensed agents guys basketball the basketball is packed all right so let's get into the story of the day last night which was shocking news before the tip a couple of hours before the tip off Jimmy Butler money is an immense achievement and it looks as though the Miami Heat might have some young attractive pieces to be able to net a malcontent superstar fire a lot of players look good Chris Sova was a bit of a revelation and all of a sudden the Miami Heat have built up these young assets do not sneeze Ah Kendrick Nunn when as you saw the Philadelphia Seventy sixers it took them a long time to dig themselves out of that muck and that process and even though they have it doesn't play Miami Heat struggle against what is supposed to be a a Memphis Grizzlies team that is changing its identity had their bad they have John Moran Hi it's one point game Eric Reed referred to the backward of Tyler hero and Kendrick Nunn as milk and cookies back court not sure why bureau started for Butler it appears this guy is going to be a starter on this theme which is insane and people like to I know there's been all that criticism in the past about the heat you know what was more impressive to me other obviously the twenty seven seven and seven for justice that's a great stat line that's not gonNA happen every night just his the way he owned and we as fans we tend to overvalue some of these young players but it's really exciting and it is a true testament to this franchise to be able to find they were all in the fourth quarter Christova like bald when it was the most making impact play and Kendrick Nunn here's the thing about Kendrick Nunn if you go off of I'm Ben Simmons to show for it they were a lot of failures along the way for the Miami Heat come away with a player that in his first NBA game just rolls out of bed and gives you start he looks like a talent that teams would tank for and the Miami Heat did that without tanking I know we buy into heat cold he's doesn't play in the game due to personal reasons we won't get into that those are personal there's all sorts of conjecture online I don't know what's real and what's not Jimmy what he did in Summer League what he did in the preseason with forty point game and his whole home effort last night that was just casual twenty in my first ever end the game and either way the Miami he I'm sorry I'm getting emotional to last night the Miami Heat cruise to victory against the Memphis Grizzlies despite not having their best they have some good young players but it's obviously going to be a struggle for the Memphis Grizzlies here and Miami got off to not necessarily slow start but they plateau hoping young guys they're not draft pick is they want proven veterans. This is a team now like with tyler hero I mean who knows if Chris Civil be sustainable but you know eight and six off the bench the Kendrick Nunn had a forty point game they might be onto something with us none Kendrick non was it was going to start last night everyone thought he was starting for Butler no tyler at Kendrick Nunn putting up twenty in his first game like everyone the fanfare goes tyler hero and you know what to a large degree he deserved that because of the preseason he had eighteen eighteen to one run in the fourth quarter it was really fun game to watch especially the end justice winslow puts up a really good stat line none a superpower in that second quarter and it looked as though here comes another bad home loss to a bad side and the Miami Heat absolutely turn it on going insane that game last night obviously it might be a little different dynamic when Jimmy's there but like as billion I were saying when we were at media day he's walking around that place like he's the guy he's the one that's I just feel like he's going to have a monster season just from being a leader he's taking that the bull by the horns they would say yeah he was very young when he broke into the League and People Forget spoke to the team because they have introduced last for some reason they have everyone like no player talked to fans the first game of every season and he was the one that spoke it's just the essential miss a year so this is a natural progression of a player now he's still needs to work on the touch around the rim he's still getting to the rim and he's still not making these layups the three point I think it was in the second or third quarter where there was tyler hero dribbling the ball down the court and he just dribbled down the court went to the right and just shut point shooting even though he was like Oh for during the preseason he's developed his three point shot into a shot that actually has a decent form and he's been dependable three point shooter in the league surprising probably best suited as a scoring big man off the bench in Games that you just need that added punch he's committed himself to play in defense and he's committed he's done all the AH pretty bad three and it didn't go in they got a rebound in a fast break and on and they got a quick layup and as the ball went in Meyers Leonard grab the ball and I- rewind this and he had his moments but I've watched Meyers Leonard plenty he's not a good defensive player he's GonNa be able to come off the bench even though he started last night I think is things in terms of culture he's in at three thirty. Am Jimmy Butler in the gym. That's all finding Dandy he's got tape out there but I do like Meyers Leonard He's a captivating personality only so one one of the more interesting parts of the game for me because my Meyers Leonard didn't play particularly foul trouble it wasn't very productive at all and there was a down the court chucking up at three it was really just an isolated incident I'm not saying it's turning into this big deep it was just an interesting I think Myers Meyers Leonard is going to have his moments in the postseason outside of the fact that we have now young assets that are attractive here seemingly overnight that they just like you lose Josh Richardson who watch it 'cause I was like did he just do that and he's grabbed the ball he's like past the bleeping ball and got caught on the Mike just a a moment of frustration with the rookie of you're just dribble but I wouldn't expect him to be one of your go-to storylines exalt funny tweet about him I'm not sure it might have been are women that said I'm not sure if four man they all got their deals I saw his whiteside struggle against Yo- kitchen he was just putting up decent counting sats a nice little home l. for Hassan whiteside I think yesterday my biggest takeaway line thirty three of thirty nine from the free throw line for this team that is bonkers considering what we've seen over the last few years that is a huge Meyers Leonard is a poor man's Kelly clinic or whether Kelley Olympic is a poor man's Meyers Leonard Kelly Olympic is a very rich man in his Meyers Leonard everyone might make the assumption that Meyers Leonard in a sound clip of from his press conference postgame man I was a guy I feel that was a pro Josh Richardson Guy not anymore he was asked about last night's game name eventually if you feel like this team can take that next step up but my main takeaway outside of that was addition by subtraction thirty three from from the is this bargain contract and he might one day take somebody for big money he already did that well it's not about the money that's just the same I understand the neither is good enough to acquire Jim Jimmy Butler is he I don't know and now all of a sudden he's being talked up because this is a seventy six or whatever you have really young attractive cheap been leaning on that word captivating a little bit too much to try to eliminate let me find a synonym he's been an interesting personality him and his wife he's GonNa have his moments he's he's a fun guy contracts that you can pair next to superstars or ship off for some superstars and even including justice winslow in in that group that can maybe net you a big time orange level were always packed come tip off time and the lower level there's just a lot to do in that arena and there's just general Miami time but it's a fair shake and the crowd and this is what he had to say the playoff atmosphere you know just there on time I'll agree up in the right direction for this team and it's going to help win them a lot of game also just winning that game last yeah that's the type of game that they have given away in years past speaking of Josh Richardson I put did a lot of negative things and brought about a lot of negative energy he's a wasted talent I'm very disappointed for what his career turned out to be because I feel like if that guy was the past you don't dislike teams I mean not as much no I I don't know I just I feel like I've grown the same people because they're going to end up on your team like like Nick Johnson when he was on the Marlins I was like I didn't like Nick Johnson but now I'm cheering for Nick Johnson because he's on the marlins criticism but why why are you doing it like a further ingratiate yourself stories of a fan base your new player over there that's a type of stuff like Phil Philadelphia a team you have to take a shot at the old team it's going to be a fun rivalry I think this year between the sixers and the Miami Heat is going to be up for it I believe what do you mean you don't yes I mean they've accomplished like more than the he'd have no they haven't no actual misnomer they've never experienced pass game seven of the conference semifinals which Josh Richardson did Simmons hasn't made a three in his entire career they talk a lot of nonsense they're fans the war Joel embiid been in the League now what are we going on five six years now committed to doing the right things you could turn into an really exceptional player and it's just frustrating for me to to watch him I wanted to root for not root for because they're in the same about them like don't worry about his son you are you going to be holding a grudge against the song for his on Hon son I I believe to be unprofessional during his time down here and he the town I mean rich people are in the lower bowl that upper bowl is always fair it's very fair as a season ticket holder the upper decks three hundred level the baseball in sports now you're on Jimmy two years look at Jimmy Jimmy Butler was never wear he disliked Jimmy Butler immensely when he was Chicago L. and beaten if Joel embiid Joel embiid were on my team I think I love him I don't think they've accomplished enough to act like they have some sort of bravado for Christ sakes up you look in the mirror and you start to realize you're going thin up top to out of every three guys are going to start losing their hair by the age of thirty five thirty five you're still a young dude at that conference but I liked Josh Richardson I still do I'm not gonNa say hate him now but it's just I just was like why not you Assan already did that we got shooters thing like I guess it's just the thing you have to do when you I don't know crap about winning stop telling me that you know about winning up your entire culture is based on tanking you losers word but you didn't ask everybody plays on every team you're on a team for two seasons then you're on another team so like you can't even really hate better than Miami Heat your losers you've never won anything as long as I've been alive you have three titles for your name that's how many titles heat franchises had since two thousand and six right so you're gonNA start losing your hair then think about a year from now it's all gone in everybody used to think as soon as you start losing your hair that's it it's genetics it's father time and there's nothing you did I hate baseball team like the Phillies I hate I was yelling so yeah Jimmy Rollins Ryan Howard I told you that I saw I saw one time on a flight Shane Victorino and I walked past I don't feel like I watched the game last night I don't feel like you're going to be passionately disliking any teams I just gotTa Gibb did you hate any baseball teams can do about it well guess what that's wrong for him dot com is a one stop shop or hair loss skin care and sexual wellness for men prescription solutions backed by science written in a way where it's just like you know they're just people and like teams aren't the way they used to be not that like you know when I was watching as a younger person was like the seventies and it was like you know Larry aw but he's a guy that I like having all my team any saying all the right things all just like Josh Richards that's see that's what I'm saying yeah you're not pointing out some hypocrisy I guess you are no dot com slash espn it's interesting we're talking in the last segment about like the spectrum and fans have been would cost hundreds if you went to the doctor or pharmacy so go to four hymns dot com slash ESPN that's F. O. R. H. I. M. S. dot com slash. ESPN four hymns. Yeah I'm just saying I'M NOT GONNA I'm not GonNa hate the seventy sixers I dislike them and their fans I just like the end uh-huh they were on time just keep I I know he didn't say our name but keep our name out your mouth I mean there's only one teams played for and that's a fair shot that ship and he he's winning so many points I mean everyone loves that Jimmy Butler came in and he took a shot of Philadelphians about how great he'd fans are you'd be all that too art great but it is an easy shot so to to Billy's point I'm not looking too much into that I'm I'M NOT GONNA get upset over the doctor delivered to your door thanks to science baldness can be optional good a four hymns dot com slash espn right now get started for just five bucks while supplies last she is prescription process required online physician consultation and only available if the physician determined prescriptions appropriate see website for full details and safety information one of the scariest things that can happen to a guy that first morning started backing me up the seventy sixers I will give their their twitter fan base some credit they are many they are legion they're stupid because they're just even though I have nothing to do with the outcome it's all very silly and stupid it's sports it's fun it's a nice little vacation from the this guy yeah yeah I'm sky high and yet it's a little lame especially when you tap into professional sports about it because like billy said they're changing teams acking in self-awareness but they are passionate they're really good fans and even though they're lacking self awareness it should be really fun and you know I like adding some try to do this last week and like no one on the heat fan base joined you in this quest to let go against the seventy sixers I was disappointed by the turn up but they they have a capitalistic venture but I like it I like disliking teams I like my team getting over on them being able to have the last laugh and I wanted to say what's up and then like teenage me came back like you can't say what's up to Shane Victory Tom that you liked seeing him play competed Shane Victorino yeah because I did hey chain but that's something that you've left his rookie year with the Miami Heat so they haven't accomplished shit look at and neither have their found fans around here talking as if they're one of these legacy franchises that's why pay money to go to these games that's why I worked myself up that's why I'm devastated when the University of Miami loses a Florida because if we beat the University of Florida is in the middle because like I was very anti Joshua Johnson in that in that last segment I said some things I don't really feel it though I kind of say things that don't actually feel like I'm in the middle here back and forth I'm like the ball our podcast we have to eat hives Kazak words but didn't you drive admitted that we hold on which sites and now we're on the ESPN APP and all of that good stuff once we switch that like certain players lost like position distinctions yeah so ask we We had an issue which I discussed yesterday where we we switched sites after the draft for some reason odd yeah red flag once we sausages I fighting with people I don't like fighting with people in general I liked fighting fake fighting over sports like that Shit's fund him yeah why Schnell towards other fan bases billy's kind of in the camp of these guys are people just don't yeah right I hate them it's a seven well no Graham went six seven I watched that entire game let me tell you something Terry Rozier if there was ever a game in which you should have gone off it was the first game on I became an issue so then somehow we've now added positions to like everybody's roster I guess to make up for that to everybody got two more spots and then Edwin Bacon get twenty two points here's the thing shenanigans are already afoot in my fantasy leave shocker with my commissioner who's my cousin have gone poorly uh I don't know if you guys can tell I had action last night I had the Hornets and that teams just going to be so bad that might be the worst team in the league but for one night one magical night rules of everyday life and sixers fans they're just passionate losers yeah should I pick up doing bacon no no there's no way he goes aren't they grams numbers to Devante Graham was like Michael Jordan in the clutch he was there closer and PJ Washington I think it's PJ Washington either way this who the hell are these guys and they were just going nuts erase ten point deficit against I don't know why the Chicago Bulls are favored over anyone here's a it says nine like I have no idea what the hell's going on in my fantasy league and because I didn't go on right at six o'clock to join this free fall of just grabbing free agents with like no order snipe because they hit a franchise record for threes and Bacon was wall and bombs away this guy PJ Garrett Dude I don't WanNa get him part of the League at nine o'clock at night and I'm like how this works out this person's not even in the league and like I haven't made my ads because we were supposed to have like three ads per week have guys out but yeah it was oh you know who I didn't miss last night James Johnson and dion waiters dion you played yourself waiters I don't think it's going to get oh this we had Jimmy Butler on the show I booked him through a company I won't say their name and they were like sick Tobac- no questions I was like that's not something that we do and I I never agree to that condition on the front end and they didn't tell me that there were things off topic and Dan like wanted to delve in anytime if the suspension ever ends because he got he got wally pipped by none that would have been moment last night you would have thought in in theory awful team where he could Dr- Jack up a million shots I've called you the worst player in the NBA and you did not disappoint last night my friend you were awful his last name's Baker show yelled at by this company that didn't tell me any of the conditions and then just started making up lies and you couldn't ask him about that I'm like you never told me that's not how I roll I know that cassette poorly but it's early well no no six o'clock last night oh so that was going through like the group like chatter whatever and I see that they're still a member that's not there's some reason no one could add or drop or do anything until like six o'clock which was just everybody went on waivers as you started no waivers another thing so there's a free for all at six o'clock I'm looking at someone named Dwayne Bacon to add to my team because I have two spots on my roster that I didn't think I was going to have let me tell you something that Hornets team is so bad I know they won last as a rookie and he I think he made seven threes it was an insane game with a bunch of guys I had no idea existed in the league that was kind of like that for the grizzlies they had a couple of guys coming into the season butlers out yeah the guy thank God thank God we didn't have him in his shot selection in that game but Jimmy Butler our show will ever be friends with him just because of that baggage it's unfortunate you guys would have gotten away with interviewing him and Media Day I don't think Jimmy Butler remembers US Dwayne Bacon is it Twain Bacon Dwayne Bacon but what if Twain begins the real deal I don't think he's the real deal I dunno Devante Graham was at look at the it was on the air yeah whatever it was I think the breakfast people are gonna be scheduling him in the future yeah but I wish understood he's got he's got a pretty crazy upbringing Jimmy Butler that he doesn't like talking about allies we've learned on our show as we've learned yeah so the listeners made I'm excited for look it's been it's no lie football season in this has been disastrous the Miami hurricanes super disappointing the Miami Dolphins I guess not really way and I hope that his personal issues aren't anything major because Milwaukee Saturday night that's GonNa be fun game all in all I was about to say I'm just excited for this you should be really dance misunderstood I feel like GM misunderstood to to be honest you feel that way about an interview him though immediate why did a lot of research before and I was reading about him like I feel like he's missing is a fire design Yeah Valeri Beret Valeri Pavel Barry's brother he married Dj from dollars is blurry it's been Larry we had a good relationship because he's very interesting and he does have like a a really rough upbringing he's private about an understandably so and that that's his deal but he does seem to have come along onto Jimmy Butler passed and they really upset by it and the interviewed in and go well Jimmy Butler wasn't didn't find his personality and he wasn't really feeling and I got yeah but Pavel Bury the Russian rocket had a brother who also played for the Florida Panthers which was weird because we acquired Valeri Berry like I think like days after we traded Pavel this short interview and it was like a cereal or something I feel like I was trying not to say the company a company I said a product series a product I mean there's only four companies put out cereal. Well whatever he was I mean got sorry and we'll see where this season ends up but there's plenty reasons to get excited and Florida panthers have taken six points from their last six games next Roy got Calgary Calgary flames walls were not really helping them but the panthers right now if the Playoffs Word Sartre the Florida panthers would be any how that five points out after she had walked away you just signed up Valerie Beret which is always so you interacted with her I did without I didn't know till afterwards wow yeah I've had other reports out at us we would be a wildcard team ice cats growl Roy have an idea you think I feel like the Calgary flames from that one interview I hope I hope not I feel like we've both grown since then to definitely on us he might remember when he might know it was the prize acquisition of this franchise but Jay but personal reasons absent from yesterday's tip-off against the Memphis Grizzlies unheard of but admit like we who was a mason that came out for the he there was a time where Mason and like civil on the corner I'm like what is this. Dj Tanner Yeah sh DJ. Tanner came into in city plantation to sign her kid up for a little league sports when I was like you know doing community service hours this boy because mission accomplished so far Tankan for two but Florida Panthers and the Miami Heat are playing really well right now Miami Heat just the Florida Panthers are starting I I'm happy with what we saw on the defensive end because I was a little worried with some of the defensive efforts why did we sign but Brodsky if we're just GONNA be giving up this many they have like an alternate jersey that's just a fire Emoji and I feel like it's really really well technically their logo is a flame did you ever watch telenovelas when you were little I watched not look religiously ahead a couple that my family would watch and I'd like get in on there was one oh but these viramontes saying yeah they have an Alternate Jersey that it's just the fire Emoji and I feel like that'd be one of the highest selling hockey jerseys ever you know they used to have Alternate Jersey surprised that she grew up to be very attractive woman I didn't recognize her so this isn't a teenager that I saw on television I was told working that and I was like the tanner leader you met DJ. I mean it was I didn't say anything to her it was just one of those things where she looked at now you're all used to the way she looks but at the time everyone was that with like a Spanish soap star people like I didn't know who was back in my first secret days comedy like buy things and from English speaking soap operas net Spanish soap operas have an end date so like series the last two seasons Max and then like they just or like like the intention was like it would've been so cool if we had the beret brothers but we're like now it's in Baretta the Rangers so we never got that moment put Valeri Mary and like the older

We are all in different locations. The pandemic has separated us. This is the rare day when Mike Stugatz and I are in studio. Everyone else's on remote and one of my favorite things. Maybe the only thing I like about Tuesday's is seeing how long Greg Cody continues to talk on the zoom after he has missed the hard network out that last time was about thirty seconds, but he's. He's gone on for two minutes. And if you saw our faces, you would see us pretend to listen. Even though the segment has been over for two minutes and wearing commercial, the record is about two minutes correct so far during the pandemic, keep pushing them along because I walked great to a not know that he was chopped off by the hard network out and of genuinely interested where he's going you nod and smile, and he misses it every time during the pandemic I. Don't think he's successfully completed one number two greg cody, the second best reason to visit a cemetery on vacation is fresh graves. Yeah I love seeing fresh. UPTURNED? In decades old centuries-old cemetery indications that someone new is buried there because you have to wonder why. Why did his loved ones put them here. Who was this person? Did he listen to the great cody show podcast? You know things like that. Go through your mind, number one greg cody. Mementos. This is big. This is huge. Any cemetery Aficionado knows what I'm talking about. You look for a little in you. See coins left on headstones candles. And one thing I saw I was in a cemetery northern. Maine as far north as you can get the United States without being in Canada in I'm visiting touring this graveyard and all of a sudden mysteriously. There's a stack of old paperback novels next to this grave in have been there so long. They're moldy. They're sodden in in. You wonder you know I didn't even dare touch them because they're like artifacts, their precious things, but these are the kind of things you see when touring a beautiful cemetery. thank you Greg Cody. I'm glad we stretch that out across the three segments. We probably should have done more on you shampooing your hair in the pool. I'm curious since Dad, you are our cemetery expert I have a question on the etiquette. What do we feel about? People jogging in cemeteries now to me. There's something about somebody trying to prolong their life in a setting of people that have no longer are no longer with us. Oh, how do you feel about that? Do we judge these? Put It on the poll Guillermo? Is it disrespectful to jog through a cemetery? Yes, we do judge these people and badly poorly. In fact I did a back of my day called Cemetery joggers about that very thing you don't look people. This is not your your exercise place you don't. Are you going to put a treadmill next to somebody's grave and start working out? Come on, get out of the cemetery. You're touring it respectfully like me or visiting a loved one I was just GonNa say, but you're not exercising, and you're not visiting anyone you're just. Walking around it's what's the difference when you doing it at a jogger because I'm paying in charge to the deceased people. I don't even know. I'm giving them the ultimate respect. I'm wandering slowly solemnly through the cemetery nodding. It graves, appreciating lives pretending pretending pretending. Pretending that you belong there because you don't want to be not affiliated with anyone there, because if you're not affiliate, do you pretend when others come by to not be a creepy person who's just wandering around the cemetery filled with dead people. He doesn't know no, because there are plenty like me, you'd be surprised I represent a whole underbelly of people who go to cemeteries, simply because we're fascinated by them. There's probably a name for a cemetery ins or something like that i. don't know what crazy. Plus you one of his. And you want visit your future neighbors. Exactly I know my wife will tell you when we go on vacation I. Seek Out Cemeteries and we'll be drunk. This has happened in the past. Driving on a highway in a city would never been in all of a sudden I see one of these little tiny cemeteries with like a dozen fifteen plots in it. I practically screech to a halt and whip a u-turn and all of a sudden. I'm my wife stays in the car. She wants nothing to do. Almost sudden I'm wandering this little out of nowhere cemetery because I'm just fascinated by Dan each one visits. He is potentially visiting and scoping out his new neighborhood. His neighbors having. Having a feel for the neighborhood, wait a minute. Am I A little crowded here? Not have enough space because I got this. Guy Nicholas! Cage over here his pyramid to close to where I'm seeing how the schools are around the area. I mean that's. Out. Exactly can I I get a spot under that beautiful Fayka Street with the beautiful canopy. Unfortunately we do not have time anymore for weekend observations in this segment because of Greg, cody's UH meanderings, and it's the whole thing sounds weird, voyeuristic creepy Haunting and I can't believe that on top of everything else you'd think. Being a caretaker at a cemetery is a great job like I mean buried and everything else we were talking about. That seems like an awful lonely job, and if you're someone who believes that you do not know what you do not know, you don't know what the Hell's spiritually energetically is making its way through that cemetery although I'm guessing, being a caretaker pays very well and if it. It, doesn't it? Showed I mean who wants that job, right? I'm guessing it would pay a lot of I. Don't think no. I don't think pays a lot of money because you could get a lot of different people to do what who need money that's how do you figure that a caretaker cemetery would be paid a great I'm digging. It pays a lot of money Dan. I don't think you're I think you're underestimating the average salary of a caretaker. Seven million dollars a year. Like what are you doing? What are you doing specific I'm thinking that a caretaker somewhere in the neighborhood of seventy, five, thousand, two, hundred, twenty, five, thousand per year. Yes all of that the? And worth every penny of it. The Internet is telling me right now that the average pay for cemetery caretaker is forty six thousand. Not Great under eight yeah. Graveyard shift Weekend observations.

Maine is one of the northern pole northernmost points in the United States. It was useless information, but as an added bonus, it was also wholly inaccurate. like I. Could I've gotten a list here from our listeners who are mad at you? I mean it's their ton of places in Alaska. There's a ton of places in Washington. There's there's a there are places in Minnesota. Thank you for that helpful cough. The Chicago is Chicago is further north than main like. Why did you feel the need to say that? As if we didn't know where Maine was by the way to explain to us, how far north you were! I meant the northeastern United States. Time now for Greg. Cote is back in my day. Long. Now it is time to take a trip down memory lane. Here's your guy. Greg Cody with bagging my day. Dog Treats. You walk down the aisle. Supermarket lately. As anyone. Call them supermarkets lately for that matter. It's a whole new world, folks. We've gone crazy marketing, two dogs or rather to pet owners buying on behalf of their canine. In my dog treat was a biscuit and the shape of a bone life was simple. The MUTT required no more look before I. Dive into this. I need to remind everyone i. live with a dog named Riley. Named after Pat Riley mixed breed rescue animal. We love her part of the family. ETC, and so forth I say this, so members of pita art picketing. My House before I'm done talking here because I'm here to remind you that dogs are simple-minded, a kind way of saying dumb. Dumb they have the intellect of a two year old toddler. They will eat anything you give them. That smells like food to them. When you give them a treat shape like a piece of Bacon, they are not processing that you have just handed them an actual piece of Bacon same when you give them a treat shape like an oreo complete with a cream, filling or an ice cream dog treats, and making those now treat shaped like donuts and meatballs. Small alligators treat ship like hearts. Aw-, he gave me A. Love Me. Who are we fooling here? The dog or the owner? There were yogurt and Berry. Dog Treats Pumpkin Pumpkin and Apple. Their dog treats made a filet mignon. In case you see nothing wrong with fido eating better than half a million homeless people. The filet Mignon dog treats by the way are may have grill marks to further. Impress your month. We've gone nuts for our dotes. There are CBD dog treats containing the active ingredient in cannabis I tried one gave me the munchies for more. Each shaped like a can of waclaw, spite, Seltzer, cold wait Pau, Bark Cherry. A company called North Coast pits cells, ostrich hearts as dog treats, company called homes alive bets sell something calls. Bully sticks five forty nine weekly. Get it! You're GonNa are you gonNA keep doing this. How many of these are you going to do because your son has been shaking his head sadly for about two minutes, people. Are we giving our dogs way too much credit for having a discerning palate? Remember who we're dealing with here. You were living with someone who spends ten minutes around. The fire hydrant transfixed enchanted buddy intoxicating of another dog. Smell and taste of his own vomit. Malicious to your dog. Pretty much the last animal on earth. CAIN UP. Ice Cream treats that look like donuts, francine. penises trying to experiment next time you're at the dinner table. Take a bite of cheeseburger half. Chew it and then drop the massacre. Onto the floor and watch Fido go. That's how particularly your dog is of what enters this bill? Save your money. My friends give your four legged friend biscuits shaped like a dog monitor uncle rawhide inside that filet Mignon on over to me. I'm Greg Cody. was back in my de. Chris. You're shaking your head. Sadly from the moment, his big indra started with wheezing coughing. I don't know what to do about the sheer number of times that Greg Cody inflict sickness upon our audience. Your cough your laugh right now Greg I don't want to make you laugh because when I make you laugh I'm worried about the day. We're going to be listening to your eulogy. Right at home. Because he just I can't explain to the audience I if we're not on television, we haven't been on television many months, so we exist thoughts in your head and Greg Cody. If you hear him, hear him. It's slowly moving disease. Just anytime he laughs anytime. Utah starts to speak. It's worse than it's ever been, is it? Not I mean? There was a period where he couldn't stop coughing, but at this point there is no time that laughter comes without coughing. I think you're right. I mean Greg. Would you say that is progressively getting worse because it feels from here like it is? Is that fair? No, no really isn't I want to allay anyone's concerns I. Feel Great. I'm in good health. I have tested positive for nothing except positively positive person and I love everyone. Coming up next. We introduce you to cruise line billy. That man, he's money. What Billy, Chris says he's fascinated by a different personality. You evidently exhibit on cruise ships free. Free and looking for orgies. Not that free. You so far away from the microphone. quietly. Caesar. Thinks that that cough? That comedic perfect off. He thinks that nobody heard it. He just went turned his back to us as if that was a discreet thing that he just did. For businesses around the world, today isn't a restart. It's a rethink that's why they're partnering with IBM to Change How they burn from supply chains to customer service. Let's put smart to work visit IBKR DOT com slash smart to learn more. At lebatardshow on twitter is how you vote on the polls. We were going to go to introduce you to cruise line billy here, but they're testing fire alarms in his building. So this would be a bad time to do that. We segue seamlessly into other things conversation only if you want Dan we can play with fire. No Pun intended to try to do it anyway. You want to try, but it only works. We only get the pay off. If it goes off we can do it, but then the payoff is just annoying the listener who the hell likes the hero fire alarm. GO OFF! You know what turned off his microphone I. Regret asking those follow question. Let me go down this path with Mike Ryan because There are a couple of things I wanted to ask him about one. During the Moskva Doll, fight the last or not the last, but one of the more recent UFC fight now that we're having them every ten minutes. tenant was something that was broadcast a lot a commercial for Christopher Nolan's. Movie that I guess has been delayed a number of times. I was I was kind of weird. I thought. It was strange, so I'm like they keep saying in theaters in August, I'm going to be in theaters in August. So what is the nature of the latest delay with this movie? Because they were obviously targeting by going that, you have see promotion. Males males of a certain age the will absolutely eat up a Christopher Nolan movie. They're targeting everybody. They were supposed to do something special on Fort Night the movie theater industry was banking on tenant, being the tent pole summer box office smash your traditional box offers a box office summer smash, and unfortunately it's been subject to numerous delays and partly to blame. This should have just been postponed indefinitely from the get-go, but the studio keeps saying. Oh, no, we're just GONNA. Push it to this day. We're just GONNA push it. It to this day to the point that we all knew three delays earlier. Just say indefinite, because you're just playing yourself and sure enough. The indefinite postponement finally came down last week, and everyone's looking forward to this movie. Even though no one knows what it's about, I heard the FANA- sound of a fire alarm, billy unneeded his microphone just so that you could drink a little of that. The other thing I wanted to mock. Mike Ryan about stugotz. You've been making fun of my crime for a long time. Here comes soccer. Soccer is the best and Inter Miami has gotten off. He was so excited about the start of all of this in the the star couldn't possibly be any worse, just a total unmitigated disaster of start. What is it five games in an the last record low first expansion team to lose their first five games ever disastrous inaugural season. They were just. Hours away from having the first ever home match even though it's in Fort. Lauderdale and everything about this launch has gone poorly. The team is not really fun to watch no imagination up tops, just one guy trying to do everything and they're super undisciplined to and bad red cards. It doesn't really seem like they're that bad because they're losing every game by one goal, but. But they're not winning anything. They're not getting any poetry. You and Mike Ryan were so excited about this thing, and this is the worst possible way for all of it to start. It's not merely that there in Fort Lauderdale in some sort of swamp out there. That doesn't make them very Miami based at all during a pandemic, but it's also. They're god awful. Everything's been a nightmare so far I will. I will say although I think five one goal losses doesn't quite reach the level of disastrous for me, but I think the expectations set so high based on what other first year teams in the League of done recently such as Atlanta and Inter Miami. Set the expectations high themselves by sort of promising what they haven't delivered, which is star power? You know I think Pizarro is a is a really nice player, but he just doesn't have enough help around him, and and the goalkeeper is is really old and on his left leg. So you know this is a team that needs to to bring in some some real life blood. Because right now it's been a terrible start. A lot of people wanna Ya, but the star power with Pizarro. He's not a star. You gotTA listen to the people that say they have no star power because that's exactly what star power is, and this could actually help some of their other players too early for a coaching change. I mean not ridiculous. I agree that Pizarro is not a star, but I will say that MLS SOCCER DOT com. A preseason ranking of the best players in the League and he was like twelve thirteenth in the entire league, so he's somebody that you add to and build around. How much has your enthusiasm for this? Again I remember the shows. We did you and Mike Ryan telling us wait until soccer takes over this market filled with so many minorities. We always do monster world. Cup Ratings we don't play. Pay Any attention down here. In South Florida to college, basketball ratings have been good on television. So like where are where you're putting a positive spin on this. Greg, cody, who made his bones? God's bones were made by Greg. Cody on the soccer beat covering the Fort Lauderdale strikers of Ray Hudson. old-timey nineteen eighty s awful uniforms. You kept telling us how exciting this was going to be. And we've got the Marlins if what we wanted was losing. I maintain that inner. Miami has a chance to very. CODY ON ESPN radio.

Bonus - Angela Manuel-Davis on Holding Space, Feeling Worthy + Living on Purpose at Propel CoLabs Fitness Festival

"<music> i got to a point where i needed to completely lean and surrender to the call on my life. It wasn't okay for me anymore not to that feeling of not being sold out and fully committed it felt so it kita me that i couldn't help but put a demand on my potential. I couldn't help but be all that. I was intended to be the and strive for that. On a daily basis. You're listening to the almost thirty podcast hosted by christa williams and lindsay simsek almost thirty started as a conversation about the transition from our twenties toward thirties but then we realized realized life is full of transitions so be expanded our mission. We are an intuition led wellness focused lifestyle podcast that promises to deliver authentic conversations diverse points of view and insights rooted and optimism growth and intention the almost thirty nation community is a group of purposeful dreamers dreamers who are smart passionate and always seeking the full potential in every aspect of their lives at almost thirty were making magic together the dream it and then we do it. Thanks so much for tuning into the almost thirty podcast here we go hello everyone welcome to almost thirty podcast young girls lindsay and krista and we're super excited to bring you you a special bonus episode. We were live from the propel collapse fitness festival in l._a. This summer the fourth year of one of the biggest fitness suggestive <unk> out there and you know that almost thirty is all about bringing people together. We are all about community. We are all about learning growth inspiration and really celebrating everything that we're doing and everything that is good in a really authentic way so propel collapsed is such a fit for us. It's actually the third event that we've done with them and we've loved partnering airing with them. We've loved the community that they built and we've loved the what they're building with propel co labs and we were so lucky to interview leaders and fitness and oliver mind body health hyphen wellness and are excited to bring you this series every friday powered by propel. These episodes are thirty minutes but packed with inspiration ration- and just really grounded. Insightful conversations could not be more excited yet. They're a little bit different than our style so it's more question answer style rather than conversational but i love how impactful these interviews are so we are pumped and our first interview is the lovely angela. Davis angela is one of the world's top cycle instructors doctors and she has been on tour with oprah poor. Her super soul tour and this conversation is incredibly powerful. Please enjoy choi. We wanted to create you know a place where people your little less alone. You know so we're not gurus. We're not experts. We're learning right along with you so <hes> this conversation today. I've been looking forward to this for for quite a while. When i heard angela davis was on the roster for us to talk to him. I've admired angela for years now we <hes> <hes> worked together formerly and i just have always seen and felt her light so deeply and i know you wilted this morning. She is a former elite athlete. She's a motivational speaker and one of l. A.'s most. I think the world's most in demand indoor indoor cycling teachers and just can't wait to dig in with her today's. Let's welcome angela davis. Thank you thank you thank you hi. Hi guys so excited to you know for me. The first thing that comes to mind when i think about angela is her ability to hold space so i would love for you to just talk talk about where that comes from. You can go back as far as you want but that is such a gift and such a talent for lack of better terms good morning good morning hi hannah good morning. I think for me it's been asked before like were you always this confidant and i wasn't. I wasn't always this confident but what happened for me is that i got to a point where i needed to completely lee lean and surrender to the call on my life and it wasn't okay for me anymore not to do and that feeling of not being sold out and fully committed. It felt so a key adamy that i couldn't help but retire. I couldn't help but put a demand on my potential. I couldn't help help but be all that. I was intended to be an strive for that on a daily basis like that just really really drove me and so <hes> i think being able to hold space is is you feeling worthy of space you now now. I think that's key. I think a lot of times you know i i once heard someone say it was actually brown's. She said that that people well don't achieve their goals a lot of times because they don't feel worthy of them so it's not until we even feel worthy of the dream team you know we feel worthy of the call on our life that we can really begin to achieve and for me that was like the first step in and holding space was filling worthy of the space that i'm holding you know and taking ownership of that like hey. I woke up this morning. I'm here not everybody was on the wake up this morning. You know what i mean but we're we're here you know and just to to shift the perspective and to take every step and gratitude and i think that's what allows me to hold space that gave me chills. It's also for me the ability not only to hold space for myself but it also puts the responsibility on me so it's the radical responsibility that it's all my responsibility to feel worthy to make myself feel that way because i'm i even struggle with that. Now you know with our podcast the ability to feel worthy of of being in this room with amazing people all the time so i'm so glad you said that that was really really beautiful. I've taken your class at seoul. It was like church. Honestly i was like oh wow aw this is a great. Who's taking her class quite the experience i was like twelve. I'm like i will get in and i somehow got it and honestly they were like. I don't it was like a holiday weekend or something. I don't know waiting in the back. <hes> i would love to hear about your journey there in in how you know your process to become the top instructor there in your process to really find your groove and differentiate yourself among some of the best in the world well not everyone knows this but my father was drafted out of high school to play professional baseball so he was a professional baseball player all of my life life and he ended up coaching and the major league and managing in the major leagues and in two thousand he was manager of the year you're <hes> he has a world series ring with the florida marlins and he was just this extraordinary coach in this extraordinarily manager and they would compare him not like <hes> a phil jackson like he was really you know philosophical and he was just this brilliant coach and and his whole idea and intentions behind being a major league baseball manager and coach wise whereas i have to get the man to be as great as the athlete so here i am here. I'm talking as i'm him so oh he's saying here. I am managing these hall of fame athletes these amazing athletes but how do i help promote bat father that man that brother so we can't just have a great athlete and a not so great man like what is that they need to match. They need to match. You know so that's kind of where i had come from as a coach. It's not really about you on a bike. It's not you you know in a room and boot camp setting. It's it's how does that translate to how you are in your life and i knew that being a professional athlete myself you know coming from being ranked in the top twenty five in the world at one hundred meters and traveling the world and wrap in u._s._a. I knew that it wasn't a bow just being being an elite athlete. I knew that that wasn't it. I knew that that there wasn't gonna be fulfilment and that i knew that who we are on the inside inside needed a match those achievements in those accomplishments that we make and for me physicality and movement and coaching was the vehicle to get someone to see that and to understand that and to make that connection and so that's where i come from and that's the heart and the intention behind how and why i coached the way that i do your <hes> history as an elite athlete athlete just kind of brings up for me the idea of attaching to an identity and it sounds like you were able to not do that but i'm sure you had moments where you did right but in terms of you know as a coach and coaching human beings you see people attaching to a certain identity and how would you say say if someone just says they are will i am. I am a nutritionist and that's kind of how they attach themselves. It's to their life. How would you coach them into really embodying the true essence of who they are attaching more to their soul rather than to that title well yeah. The title is what you do. It's not who you are. You know so that's just you know from jump it it it you know we are in a day and age my sister just did this beautiful show it was on the hills on a hill song network and it was now with natalie the and she really talked. She really like dove into that. I did episode with her but it was talking about a lot about the false identity you know and and we're kind of in a day and age where like follows and legs and like attached to all the wrong things that we think make us who we are interesting interesting. Are we find validity and our worthiness. N and that's just not like you know you can be extraordinary at something and not a good person. What's that you know so i think attaching yourself tha kindness and humanity the and compassion and empathy and forgiveness you know i think those are things that make up the material of who we are. You know it's not what we do but it's it's you know how we treat people. You know i i mean and so that's huge for me is really getting someone to you to to understand that you know because what happens is when you attach yourself to what you do and you're no longer doing that. Then you lose who you are where that was never who you were in the first place. It was just what you did and we have to understand that the gifts you know we're all born with talents every single one of us is born with gifts and talents every single. No one of us is born in purpose on purpose for a purpose. We're not created to find purpose. You're not going to like oh. Let me find my purpose. I mean fine wine here here. You are already created in purpose with purpose on a per like four purpose like already created with that so really life is about exploring that in leaning into that and operating in those gifts and talents and so i think you know for me. It was just really like understanding that and that that changes you know i used to be. I used to run track professionally. I don't do that anymore you know and so what is the extension of the guest you know coaching you know coaching became an extension of the gaff speaking became an extension of the guests you know making music now became an extension of the gas by get just what is the extension of what is the remix. What is the remix and never attaching just the one thing but what's the remix you you know and like fine at flow and i think that can keep us free you know and something that doesn't keep us free as limiting beliefs and i know that we have you know we all have different ones that were working with whether we are aware of them or not. How do you coach people to recognize and then worked through their limiting beliefs that they may have. It's lenny beliefs are so paralyzing and what's crazy is we could take on someone else's belief system for us like someone can look at me and say you're a woman your mom your would can listen to all kinds of things and i only hold you to this and then we somehow come an agreement and partner with that isn't that crazy like how quickly we relinquish our right to be all that we were called created an intended to be because someone else had an opinion about us and then we just relinquish the right okay well maybe and so in coaching someone and a breakthrough that it's really reminding them of the dream. By what is that dream you've had since you are a little girl or what did i dream. You've had since you were a little boy. What is that. What is that thing that keeps you up at night that has you toss an intern. And what is that what something that you've been able to see that you've been given a vision for that. No one else can see that's hatched to your purpose and not everyone everyone is going to be able to see that for you and that's okay but get around people who will breathe life into that get around people who believe even you own. We'll speak to the gifts and talents and those were the people that will help you break through those ceilings but you may not have even put their for yourself and help you break through those limitations and help you break through to the next level but it's really surrounding yourself with people that can speak to the gift i and it's about not partnering and coming into agreement with someone else's limitations for you and remembering remembering remembering what you've seen for yourself. Remember that we so easily forget we forget eh. We forget and we were talking a little bit back. They're like it's easier for you. You know the opposite of this too when someone else can see it for you but it's okay to see it for yourself like it's okay to have a dream. It's okay to have a vision. You know visionary someone that can see the future with great imagination. It's okay. It's okay you know and not to be you know embarrassed embarrassed by that. Maybe it's not for you to share with everyone. You know because not everyone can handle it. Not everyone you know what i mean and not everyone's one is going to support it. It's not for everyone but whatever that is. I hold that and don't forget that like remember that remember that dream you know if god let you see it. He already put it in you to be it. You know and i believe that with everything that i am like if you can see it you can be it and surround yourself with people support that yeah i love the idea of thinking back to when you're a little girl little boy like just being so clear and like not having any limits and you know wanting. I wanted to be like the first dancing tennis player. You know what i mean but but you know it's so clear there's no judgment around it but like where did that. Go you know there's so many layers that are just put on top of us that we really have to work now to peel back but i just i love that that reminder. You know i'm curious. You mentioned like bringing people around you that support you and really help you to realize it's just how full of purpose you are. How have you done that and i know you are meeting and around different communities unity's all the time and were in l._a. You know it's it's a lot it can be chaotic. So how do you create that cultivate that and then also manage your own energy to be able to give as much as you give. That's a good question. <hes> i think what connects us. I've first of all we were all all created to commune. We were every single. One of us has created to commune. It's not like we're created to to be isolated by ourselves. We are created. It's a commune and the thing that brings community together is 'cause sharing a 'cause you know sharing an intention and and i think that's what's so beautiful about the communities that i am. A part of an loss angeles is that there is a cause and there is an intention and we are working towards in high a higher expression of ourselves. We're holding each other to hire you know you are the total some of the five closest people to you so being mindful of the people that you put around you and are the people that are around you are they are. They poking holes in your vote. Are they growing your boat or they in your boat and rowing your boat and when you can't row there rowing and so i'm really selective with who i choose to be around and not in a way that i feel like better than or anything like that but i'm just really really selective selected about my time and my energy because what i do matter so much not who i am what i i do matter so much and i know that i need energy to do what i do and to be excellent at what i do. And have you ever been around people where you leave them and you feel like it ki- okay well. They're not that's doesn't work right or if you've left people you feel better. You know like like we pay attention. Pay attention to and i just i pay attention to that. I'm really sensitive to that and i know that maybe maybe hanging out or doing something that energetically. It's gonna cost me more than i'm willing to spend and so i'm okay with saying no. I'm okay with that. You know i'm i'm probably a lot older than a lot of you guys in here and i'm okay with that like i'm okay with no no no. Is you know a full sentence. Can you now now. You're gonna wise just so we always want to put something on it like we always trying to put some on it now. Now tom and just being really okay with that girl. Really i need to go in the mirror and just be like no we can all practice are knows i make the longest knows ever. I'm like well. Maybe if i meant to say. No one thing that i've noticed too is when i am on my self care game and i'm really being thoughtful about it. It does include no and no is kind of where it starts for me not for everyone and then kind of a guest myself nauseous to myself. Can you tell us about yourself carretero. My family really feel me. My my family feeds may and so self care for me is being able to be with people being able to be with my family. You know people who know me really well. I'm kind of the worst with texting or on my phone because i don't have my phone by me. You know i'm not that gray on instagram. I don't even know how to do the story because i'm not if i'm with you i'm with you. You know what i mean and sure it'd be better for in my life and my brand if i were to do that but my love language is time and so so if i'm with you i'm with you you know and i'm just going to be in the pocket with you and so self care for me is being with people that breathe life back into me you know and just at just feels really really good feels really really good to me and and south care is sleep you know as a mom and a wife and <hes> a working mom mm-hmm sleep is important eating good. You know really bad food. Bothers me like like bad. Food is the worst to me it just as a waste like i you now so like really eating good food being around on people i love being able to sleep until my body says it's time to wakeup if i can get that in that self care for me speaking of your family and your husband's here and you have two beautiful boys one of your kids tell you wow my kids are so different like completely different. My little one teaches me freedom. He's free. He still lets his stomach hang out how he eats what he wants when he wants aunts and he just leans in to life he's just free. He's just where's the good time and if it's not around around i will be the good time i will make it the good time and he has taught me that freedom <hes> and my oldest child has taught me grace. He just has grace he just he saw he's kind he has manners. He's really excellent excellent at what he does. He's very gifted and he has a grace about him when he uh-huh moves in and out and through the world so my kids have taught me freedom and grace it's beautiful and your ability to be so present and and give and receive that time allows you to release you that because i you know we're all moving so fast so public it could be easy to miss that those are the lessons that they are here to teach you and then i'll follow up bay saying what is being in a loving committed partnership taught you well. I wouldn't be doing what i'm doing. If i didn't have <hes> has been that is so extraordinary and he was the one that was able to see the gift and speak to the gift because i had walked away from all of it. I went through really bad postpartum depression. After i had my second child i went onto really bad <unk> postpartum and i was depressed and i was on the couch and i i just like like living was a lot living with a lot and you know just the weight of the day just yes. I couldn't even get off the couch. There were days where i just couldn't even get off the couch and i was breastfeeding and i'm like i got kids and and he was the one who said you are and encourage her and the world is waiting for you. I just went down the street and talk. There's this yoga spend spend studio down the street. I just went on the street and i talked to the owner <hes> they're waiting for you and <hes> that is literally like like how it happened. He was he started to speak to the gift and was just like on and he just did it. In a way that was so kind and so loving where i was able to receive ziva because someone can love you and you're not able to even receive a ray but he did it in a way where i was able to receive it and i was able to hear here it. I was able to hear a weight. Wow you're right. That is who i am and and i and i and i lost you know like i you you know i am an encourage you know and so i think that's everything i think having someone that loves you and knows how to love you. Oh i think you being willing to receive love and give love and beautiful partnership and you having someone that i can speak to the gift and see the gift. Even when you can't is key anything that ties it together to with the limiting beliefs in the sense of you could attach to others limiting beliefs of you you can also attach to their vision for you and the the beauty they see in you so that's such a beautiful mirror. How can we best support report our family our community our friends you know i think that's such a beautiful example of this support that he had for you seeing the best in you and seeing your gifts when maybe you couldn't because of <hes> post-partum. How would you recommend people to support others. I think the best way for us to support each other to search for the good and each other like you're gonna find what you're looking for. Every single one of us will find what we're looking for. If you know someone is standing in front of us and we you know go to nitpick nitpick. We can make fine every little thing that we want to say that is wrong but if you search for the good you know if that's your lens sounds if my lens to search for the good and and people and my community and situations and speak to that and breathe life life into that i think that's how we support each other. We we speak to the good. We speak to the gift and we hold each other to hire there. You know friends. Don't let friends subtle like if you've got people in your life that don't call you on your staff. That's not your friend friends. Don't let friends subtle. I don't want people in my life and might tight group. That won't call me out or homey accountable like that. What does that do that doesn't serve me and that doesn't serve anybody so i think having people in your life that are super honest. <hes> speaking to the gift is a way to really support each other. That's how we support each other. You know honesty and speaking life yeah and it's it can spread so it's you know i think if we look for the negative the other person's gonna find a negative in someone else. You must see it happen so i just think i i completely agree what something right now today this week that you're really proud of. I'm writing a book finally. I'm really proud of it. It's a big deal. It's one of the hardest things i've ever done in my life and i was kicking and screaming the whole way. I'd even sign the book deal on. I was like i'll give the money back. I'll give it back <hes> just because it's just it's just that hard. I i guess just that hard to write a book. It's just that hard you know. It's not like you could say it and take it back like it's out there and so really really really every word counts and matters and and really me writing. A book is just a tool to inspire. You know it's not like oh look at me. I wrote a book. I've never wanted right above. I didn't want to write a book but it's just a tool. You know they made me someone will get this book and be inspired may be someone get this book and turned the corner and believes that their dream is valid. Maybe someone will get this book and feel worthy of their best life. You know like it's just a tool and so when that matter so much to you everything that you put in there matters and so it's just the hardest thing i've ever done but it's worth it. Is it hard to relive stories and kind of go through uh-huh yeah all of that. I've been like processing those those while you're writing the bug well everything that we've ever gone through and our lives have brought us to this moment has brought us to right now you know so and that's why in in the heat of something hard i can look at someone and say you know this isn't happening to you but for you. Just shift your perspective. It's is not happening to you but for you and there's a reason why and it's changing the material on the inside of you and posturing you for what's in front of you so just go go through it be able to go through it be able to sit in the pocket be able to lean into the challenge and so i i am who i am as a coach as a mom as a wife has a sister as a friend because of all of that stuff and so i'm okay with sharing airing that because i know it's changed me and allowed me to be who i am so i'm okay with that. I'm okay with that. Yeah yeah the honoring of who you've become. It's just a tribute to that. That's beautiful last question from me lately. I've been like trying to think about things you know. People people ask not me but in general like what are you working on and i want to know something about you. That may be. You've been told you need to work on on or you think you need to work on but now you really celebrate it all right. This is being really really honest. I have come to a place where i do honestly search out the good in people and there was a time in my life where i was younger and <hes> where i felt like i it could take that information that negative information about somebody and draw conclusions or be judgmental and i literally in the people people who are the closest to me know this. I don't even wanna hear it. I don't even want to hear it mike. I just wanna get to know people on on my own. I don't you don't have to bring me any information you don't have to and and that is a place where i honestly worked to be to not participate in the gossip and the judgment don't even participating brings me. I don't care on even pair pair on even care. I've really worked to stay clean and clear of that so that when i'm in a moment with someone that i can truly be in a moment was one inc you so much. We should all take a little breath so our body and cells can didn't take in all of that information. Thank you guys so much. Where could people connect with you. <hes> on my instagram.

Welcome in the bubble I'm Andy, Slava, and this is. We have a educational show for you today that's my dad jokes. It is a show about colleges and universities whether they should open. You may recall if you go back on the application, you'll find that we did an episode with our Duncan about whether schools should open for K. through twelve I. Think you'll still find that very interesting. Today we're focusing on colleges and universities, and as you know, we have college slash university incoming student who is part of this show so he will be a big part of this episode. Understand colleges universities as not just something that educates our kids and helps them become adults but understand them as businesses understand them as big businesses understand them as having enormous economic consequences packed in the communities in which they're located. And with that, we have the perfect gassed. His name is Scott Galloway he is a professor at nyu very much in demand. Scott has to podcasts of his own one is called the prophet show and the other is one he co host with Cara Swisher called pivot. By the way you can also hear Cara on this show who absolutely kicked my butt for a half an hour. If you WANNA hear Andy get his butt kicked I still hold that the last five minutes of cares wisher where some of the most golden part of the conversation that we've heard so far on corona virus and matched baby by Larry, brilliant and his episode. Anyway here's Scott. Let's bring him up. Let's talk about colleges and universities. Can guys hear me? As got. Handy how are you? Good. Thanks. You we've wanted to do episode about colleges and universities opening before it starts because it's such a complex and interesting topic we've done one on schools. And you're the perfect person to talk to. You ve written some very provocative things about colleges and universities at this moment whether they should open or not. I wonder if you can just start by giving the landscape, how many colleges and universities are there, how many of them are opening how many art and kind of what the profile of the process looks like for most of the school? Scott. Depending. On how you define call at somewhere between any twenty, five, hundred and forty, five, hundred whether you include online universities, four prophets, vocational schools. But in some there are thousands of universities. It's a huge industry that I believe employs about four million people. You know even just the four hundred thousand international students to come here spent about forty billion dollars in our economy and support something like four hundred, thousand jobs eleven million kids are supposed to show up as freshmen in the fall twenty five, million college students. So it's. It's an enormous industry and it's also. From a national perspective if you were to say what categories does America dominate alright software weapons media. Maybe former but right up, there would be education in almost any survey of the top universities in the world my almost any metric we kind of dominate the list. So it's an incredible silently a big industry. It's an important industry in a place that kind of a key national role in terms of the. Wealthiest most powerful people usually one thing in common and that is there's a good chance they're going to be educated in the US. So it's important economically, it's important from the brand us and it's also played an enormous role. In, our progresses nation right at spin this. Traditionally, it's of been if you say, what is the key to upward mobility income ability in the United States over the last? Fifty years a lot of people would point to education that's accessible to the lower middle income household. How many towns and cities across America rely on the college or university as a primary economic driver. So I don't know how many towns are but. There's gotta be. I mean on whether it's Lynchburg or Ann Arbor or Athens Georgia. You're talking about economies where sometimes forty to fifty percent. Of The employment is somehow connected to the university and That's where it gets kind of scary. Talk a little bit about your your wheelhouse is the idea of a small town, maybe not with a huge hospital, all of a sudden. Incurring an influx of tens of thousands of what could be a symptomatic carriers corona virus and you know these little college towns. Could be overwhelmed, but there's just no doubt about it. Some of these little towns are kind of one industry towns. So if you're a university president. You're right now or over the last few weeks and I think over the coming few weeks still. Facing an important decision or set of a sub decisions can you walk us through how university presidents at different types of schools large small those of big endowments with smaller? Cut It are thinking about this decision what factors have to consider and what decisions you see they're making, and then I think we'll get to your perspective. So I'll start with what I see them doing, and that is there in general putting out what I would argue are fairly strident bold statements around the the Brown President President? Brown Christina Pakistan said that we had national obligation to reopen welcome students back. and. I think that that Kinda hits you correct that universities are important. Young people continuing education is important but I think a lot of this is driven by what I would call the consensual hallucination between university leadership parents, students, and the finance department to these universities because. You have with a university it's it's an organization it's a business. You have exceptionally high fixed costs. The majority of the costs are incurred by the personnel. In many instances. The majority of that cost is made up with tenure professors. It's sort of an immovable object, an immovable cost and the maintenance of these facilities which have gone under under what I would refer to as the Great Rolex vacation of campuses where it's sort of a keep up Jones eight you know these places look more like the Ritz Carlton. Cameras than they do a campus. So you have exceptionally high fixed cost. You have a forty years where you could depend on the same amount of revenues coming in within two week period where parents sent in their deposits maybe plus four five percent and all of a sudden that's threatened for the first time in four or five decades, and you don't want to be captain, and that takes the ship down. So I think that lends to a lot of rhetoric around how important it is to open. In that, we're going to figure out protocols to ensure something resembling a normal experience. I think a lot of this quite frankly is is Latin for parents please send in your tuition checks. And I think where we're going to end up is what they will refer to as a hybrid experience in right now, the terms are using to describe that hybrid experience our labs and studios will be in person so if you're studying. If you're there's a large lab component if you're biochem or you're a music major, there's still this notion that we're going to have labs and studios. I. Don't think that's the case I think that university leadership are generally very responsible empathetic data driven people and I think all the data points to one thing and that is the downside risks of putting in a potentially symptomatic carriers in a room where the windows don't open mine. The majority of the windows don't even open classrooms because they do that for temperature control and all of these protocols that were trying to you know ABC class testing plexiglass the professor what is almost a Hazmat suit? Testing every day on campus temperature checks. My understanding is and this is your wheelhouse is that those protocols are only as effective as the protocols these students adhere to off campus. And when you're dealing with a population where for tens of thousands of years, every instinct in her body is pulsing that they should be not distancing. They should be forming relationships they should be finding you know mates or at least practicing, they should be establishing friendships and then you introduce our hall in by the way I think I think that the generation I know your son is thinking about is thinking about college I think that generation is generally speaking more responsible. Then our generation, you know lower drunk driving incidents lower incidence of teen pregnancy but. If. You just have ten or twenty percent that have something resembling the college experience I had. It sorta reads like the opening scene of contagion too. So where I think we're headed is once the deposits are in or not in there's going to be a more sober communication to parents saying look if you want to send your kid back to New Orleans, if you want to send your kid Ann Arbor Cambridge fine you have to assess your own risk for you and your family but we're not we're I think we're going to effectively pretty much closed the campus down I think university especially, the research labs have been warriors against disease and viruses and I don't think we're going to opt to be the enablers here. I think the the risks far outweighed the upside if your son is forced to move back into stick in his House for another twelve weeks stick in his room data nuisance for him. That's a you know an impairment for his college experience, but it's not profoundly tragic nineteen year olds have been asked to do worse in our history whereas the K. through twelve debate that sometimes get conflicted I think is a much more serious debate involves developmental disability. But where we're headed is I think once tuitions over the next and most of it is supposed to come in in the next kind of seven to fourteen days. I think you're GONNA see a lot of announcements along the lines of the following in an abundance of caution because of increased urges we're going all remote in some schools have already decided that. And typically the ones that have already decided that have done that because they can or say they, they've announced it. And it's all over the map. A Harvard can take an economic hit. They're going to be just fine. So they've said we're going to be mostly all remote. And then cal state, which charges seven thousand and seventeen thousand for in state and out of state tuition. Respectively, eighty three percent of their students are commuters such that they don't have this toxic cocktail of high dead poet's society experience with a very high tuition attached to it, which is kind of a danger zone right now. You know they're fine. Their value proposition is really not diminished if they go online and they were one of the first to announce their going all online because they're about education some certification, and you can get most of that in the online experience they're not offering sorta the leafy campus football game experience. So I think that's where most of us are headed I think some have been more forthright depending on their. Value proposition and how economically sound are. So this financial state that the schools are in, you talked about the impact on on university towns into reality that you know we don't often think about colleges universities as businesses but if you play out for us what happens with different types of schools if they don't come back if they don't get this revenue, how do they manage what happens to our higher education system? I think a lot don't manage I think you're gonNA see hundreds of universities begin the same sort of death march. The department stores have been on for the last decade. And that is if you are sort of toxic cocktail of the following. If you are kind of high to. Low certification meaning that you're a school that doesn't have the same kind of brand equity of a pen. but at the same time, you're charging the same price. This is one of the few industries where you can find a Hyundai for the price of Mercedes. Those schools are at risk and quite frankly I. think they deserve it I think every other industry faces a certain level of economic pressure. What industry garners more than one hundred, thousand dollar price tag over a four year period and most of these universities are getting more than one hundred thousand dollars over the four years. Operates it's sixty eighty sometimes ninety points of gross margin. and hasn't had any economic pressures. The last forty years a lot of the pushback I've got I've received my article isn't. You know they say they don't like the mythology and it's a responsible and I look at it and say, well, okay what industry? Has Not received some sorta scrutiny that's charging the fees you're charging what industry doesn't at some point have to cut costs and really examine their value proposition. So the elites pan is fine. They'll be under pressure to maintain their financial strength and they're going to just basically say you in almost kind of like mafia protection likely you. Trust US trust US where smart remote we're doing. Send in your deposits. The second tier schools will have to go really deep into their waiting lists. They'll have to cut costs, but they'll survive, but there's going to be entire swath of schools. Where parents rationalized making those types of payments distinctive. The fact they don't get a great certification or even you know we call world class education but they're still charging that Mercedes Price Tag. Those universities are going to go into their waiting lists and they're not going to have them because there's going to be this demand destruction the top a lot of people at elite universities. GonNa take a gap year. I'M NOT GONNA, go I wanNA reduction of fees that means they have to go deeper into writing, which means a lot of kids in tier two schools will get into tier one and then the tier three guys just don't have the waiting lists, they don't have the cushion. But quite frankly I think it's overdue I think this discussion I think the scrutiny I think universities exiting this self aggrandizement and arrogance where they think they can just raise their prices fasted inflation for forty years without ever kind of incurring reckoning I. Think it's overdue I actually over the long term I, think it's healthy. I think crisis is a terrible thing to waste and I'm hoping we don't waste this. And now, for something, we'd like to call advertising. Hey. It's me again. I told you that we would be having an ad free episode. So this couldn't possibly be an ad. Once again, we're just trying to remind you that we're running a special promotion this week for new supporting members, and if you sign up before August seventh to make a contribution of ten dollars per month or more, we will give you a coupon code to get a free in the bubble t shirt, and of course, your money will be coming to us. We'll be donated to code relief. Funds. Now, I know you hate these member drives as much as everybody else does. So please don't make me do this again. You'll get access to bonus content and other benefits. Of course in to sign up, go to www dot lemonade media dot com slash in the bubble that's www dot lemonade media dot com slash in the bubble and I'm so grateful for your support. China. Prize on this podcast is truth. As people see it honesty and Scott Man I just have got to compliment you and commend you for really just laying out at some really clear terms. But a lot of people don't talk about in a very truthful way whether people agree with you ninety percent ten percent one, hundred percent or not at all, you can't argue with the fact that you're putting forward a very clear perspective and I really appreciate that and I know people listen. So I'M GONNA. Give Zach and opportunity here. Zach you usually when you're arguments with me. So I WANNA take on Scott here and see what? You respond. Yeah. I was just hoping to ask a few questions of things that I'm hearing people. My Age are wondering about just like next year. do you think there's any scenario where colleges can tread a bubble sort of like with MBA's doing where students can do more of what they want to do as long as there's no cases coming in and out and just like there's testing and basically what is doing right now? Yeah I think it's possible Zach and the the NBA inching will be an interesting experiment but the you know as you can see with like the MLB, their experiment is just kicked off and we already have. Infections of the Marlins, the Yankees. So I think it's possible. I think it is feasibly possible that universities could pull this off. The question is in on a risk adjusted basis. Is that risk where taking? In that is I'd like to think that at some point we're going to have a vaccine or non pharmaceutical intervention such that you're gonNA get. Eighty to ninety percent minimum of the college experience at me and your dad had. But for this fall semester. When I see the surgeon cases When I see these small towns not really prepared for this. I wonder if it's worth the risk so I would say you know, can they pull this off down? Maybe is it? We're trying there. So you talk about this bubble, right putting everyone a capsule testing Ab test all these protocols I wonder if that time would be better spent trying to enhance the online learning experience and saying look I know the sucks but you're going to have to stay at home or door move wherever you want you're going to do most of your learning remotely or all of it. And we're GONNA cut tuition and a half. We're GONNA take a financial hit because we recognize it's not the same experience and we look forward to welcome you back hopefully and optimistically for the spring semester in January to me that feels like a more responsible. Waiting of. Health Interests Concern for the Commonwealth. And also recognizing that you know you need to make some progress, you need to have a productive fall semester. I just worry that the generation right now that seems to be the super spreaders of virus. Concentrating them in small areas, and then just hoping that our protocols are active a think the downside risk is greater than the upside so. Your Age, the present value of time is exceptionally high meaning that a semester sounds profoundly like a long time. I think in retrospect you're going to look back and say Yeah I got ninety percent of the experience I wish I'd gone hundred percent but I think you're going to get ninety percent and I think that ten percent. Erosion in the experience for you is compensated by the reduction in risk will incur if we continue to have this what I call consensual hallucination. That we should reopen campuses and we figure this out with protocols if the. Mlb can't figure this out with their resources and keep them my major league baseball. You're talking about thirty or forty people. I mean how many people aren't baseball team twelve or fifteen, and then maybe another eighty support them. So you're talking about an enterprise one, hundred, hundred people, and they haven't been able to contain outbreaks among these guys and I would imagine these guys. They have millions of dollars on the line I think they are distancing and doing their best, and if the Florida Marlins can't stop an outbreak. How the Hell is Penn insist. So I worry that this bubble strategy, the bubble is so expensive and so risky that the best bubble is for you probably to hang at home or in a safe place, do remote learning and get ready for the spring semester. For these expensive schools who say that might be in danger of not lasting through the pandemic. What do you think they should do because? Can they afford to reduce tuition and have their kids go back? Can they afford to keep tuition at the same price and risk losing students? Can they afford to take the risk of having a failed in person learning? What do you think they should do I think some of them should go out of business I believe in capitalism winners and losers and the outrage. I've heard the email from universities the senses that there's somehow these castles of -bility that should never be questioned. And I think there are a lot of universities who reflect and leadership reflect US level of arrogance and south aggrandizement that has resulted in a lot of these presidents writing me letters are making five, seven, eight, hundred, thousand dollars a year charging forty and fifty and sixty thousand dollars in tuition to middle class families and households putting them under extreme stress. So. You know welcome to the work week is what I would say to a lot of these universities the fact that they are for the first time in a long time falling under the same scrutiny almost every other anytime you go in and you by Coca Cola or you know if you're looking at a Volkswagen, you do an amazing amount of homework and you are constantly trading off the options and my sense is these universities just aren't used to a certain level of scrutiny where parents are asking for the first time. Are you worth it? Parents don't have a moral obligation essent checks to an institution just because it's a university and they've all talk themselves into believing that they're the church or something that there's some sort of higher obligation to these institutions. No, there isn't. They're wonderful but they need some competitions, some of them, some of them should and will go away and like every other organisation capitalist economy, they have two choices they can adapt or they can die. and. Some of them will adopt I would argue that rather than adapting like sports, redacting media's adapting restaurants are trying to adapt they need to acknowledge the issue and figure out. All right. How do we deliver a better experience for less money? That's what it comes down to a better experience for less money because this experience especially across the mediocre universities hasn't gotten any better than thirty forty years but my gosh has gotten more expensive. So This disruption is overdue. There'll be some innocent victims. They'll be some great universities that encourage incredible strain and the May go away. That's that serve at great social purpose. But I think this is how the sausage gets made in a capitalist society and I think that the university system comes out the other end of this hopefully stronger. What are professors feeling about the hybrid models that are APP pens doing a hybrid model i? Know a lot of different schools are doing hybrid models like what are what are professors thinking? Poland like it because they see it as a threat to their to the economic wellbeing. So and I'm boasting right now typically my fault I'm teaching the fall, my brand strategy class not second year MBA's, and it's usually Zach it's usually one hundred and sixty kids and the reason it's one hundred and sixty is that we're constrained by the number of seats in the classroom there's one hundred, sixty seats so they cap enrollment Roman and hundred and sixty? And I said to my administer, it's my leadership. I'm not coming on campus until there's a vaccine. And they said fine you can do all online then put me under any pressure to do anything I don't WanNa do but they said if you're going to teach online, can we expand your enrollments message? Sure I WANNA be a good citizen help out. So I have four hundred kids taking my class. Now, what does that mean? It means that there's two hundred forty fewer kids for other NBA electives. So kind of the dirty not. So secret factor in universities you'RE GONNA find about thirty percent of the professors at Penn teach about eighty percent of the students. With online if you will diminishing or loosening the supply up, you're going to see a ten ninety rule and that is ten percent of the professors are GonNa be educating ninety percent of the students nother ninety percent of professors who don't fall into that ten percent. We'll have increased pressure on them to conduct better professor generally evaluated onto criteria, their research first and foremost especially for tenure and tenure track, and then how good they on the classroom. When all of a sudden they're really teaching 'cause there's tremendous demand destruction for the other ninety percent and they can't justify their salary based on the fact they're not teaching kids at all anymore it puts pressure on them to do amazing research. So if you're a tenured professor making a good living with lifetime job security, you have a vested interest in the status quo. So anything that threatens. That whether it's online learning or having the skills a lot of these individuals average tenure professors, fifty five, a lot of these folks don't have the skills as evidenced by the fact that my guess is your dad needs you to kind of figure this whole technology out you've seen just huge resistance they're feeling is the status close working just fine and they're making a lot of arguments around. About the importance of education and development and the importance of the in person experience, which is all Latin for I like my life just the way it is. We talk a lot on this show we have at least about equity in privilege. The picture. I. Think you're painting at least for me is one where universities of high-quality like Nyu like Penn are available to more people because people can access them digitally if they choose and so the thing that like goes off in my brain is that there's another thing that parents and students pay for. That's almost a separate thing from how we think about the. Education and the certification which is sort of I'll call it a fall and spring for your camp. Is I listen to you? I think we all in our heads conflate these three things the certification you talk about the core education, and then this sort of you know elite privilege summer camp that many of us have I'll vast Masala Joe for and probably grow up. Telling our kids about. So you know I think what you know. Your suggesting forget right is that third thing is absolutely at risk right now at least for a period of time for the people who are privileged enough to have access to it but those first two things, the degree in education can get whole lot more equitable and a whole lot better in this process. Yeah I. think that's a great bucket of what's going on here and let me be clear. I don't in any way underestimate the importance in the luxury of having a joyous safe place to spill into adulthood I mean, Zach you're going to go to school. You're going to test your limits. I won't say this most kids your age go to school test their limits around alcohol they too drunk. They throw up, they test their limits. You're, GONNA get your heart broken but your heart's GonNa grow back stronger and you're going to be more resilient. You'RE GONNA find out that there are other really smart kids. You're probably the top in your high school class right now you're gonNA find out there's people smarter than you and it's going to create some humility. You're gonNA find out that maybe think should be a pediatrician. But. You're. You're not meant for that. You'RE GONNA find. You never would've thought interesting and you're gonNA find them fascinating and you're going to become more well rounded person. You're gonNA make life friendships. That is increasingly becoming the opportunity the accoutrements of wealth. and. We need to figure out a way such more kids can experience that. In terms of the economic health of our nation and opportunities for kids, we just need to provide more certification and more education more credentialing for just more kids. Because I. You know only third of kids go to college and a lot of people argued that maybe too many or too few. But if you think about our economy, our culture, our politics, it's dominated by people with college degrees and unfortunately it's not getting easier. It's getting harder to get into school but yeah, I in some Andy I think that was a really decent. Summary and where I'm hearing from his parents. That are disappointed and angry because their kids through grit. Through an opportunity of outstanding kids and economic privilege, their kid was about to experience that third thing they might have to delay that. Well, look you have sparked a national dialogue. And like I think many of the topics that relate to the pandemic, the one thing I finally they have in common is they are things that extend. More, deeply into our social system and how we live than just the pandemic they. In fact, expose questions we always should have been asking but haven't had the impetus to and you're the catalyst for this.

Local Hour: The Deadspin Leaks

"Stugotz here diehard batteries are like the rare breed of athlete that always plays with a lot of power, but you could also depend on to be on the field game after game. Yes me that's the type of performance you want to your hood. So head to advance auto parts where you can get the reliability durability empower die hard with free testing and installation from advanced team members adventure auto at advance auto parts, and participating carquest locations see stores for details. Hey welcome to the local hour and I know what you're hoping for in the local. Our don't worry you're GONNA get it in the big Sui Heat Reaction Cocaine Mike He'd homer ism all that is coming your way we'll see if the urinate or makes an appearance the Miami heat are up to go against the best team in basketball. It's exciting times down here for South Florida sports fans in general at three TV's working overtime last night. And I'm so excited Inter Miami came away with a point on the Road David Samson I know you were glued to Inter Miami United on F S One, a nil nil affair a regional rival big time point for Inter Miami. is a huge moment. I couldn't decide whether I was more excited to get the one away point for Inter Miami or when Jimmy Butler second free throw with no time left went in. That was just for good measure. I mean insane game I I I know this is going to sound like a knee jerk reaction in hyperbolic but I can't remember in my lifetime in which more people were sent to the free throw line because they were filed on the shot it was insanity great game. Exciting time zone here because. You have the marlins inexplicably in the playoff chase well, not inexplicably the the explanation is that the record is good enough to be in this case. Because the playoff expansion and sixty games is just such a mutation of the sport that you have a handful of teams over the course of a full regular season might prove to be bad in the thick of this San Diego might have actually been legitimately good this year but San Francisco's hanging around Philadelphia's probably a team that I don't think he would have had in thick of the playoff chase as they are right now you look at I, mean even the Tigers. Are Pretty Good David what is your take on this season? Should I just enjoy it for what it is? Should a part of me be like wow, this is such a mutation of the sport I can take this seriously. Let depends. What kind of person are you in general when you look at your glass in the morning because you are acting pretty half empty right now and that's disappointing because South Fan we gotta take it the way we can get it when we can get it how we can be if it's a phantom foul by Jaanus you take. The fact is I just would take umbrage with one thing you said to start this show. The bucks are not the best team in basketball. They may have the best record in basketball, but they are not playing like the best team in basketball by any stretch since this bubble started, the heat's are a better team. It does remind me of the Marlins when when we WANNA know three hit to go back to it but people said Oh we're we shouldn't be favored against the cubs or the giants and I really don't. I really don't think you hate to go back to it now. Well, listen it's just that people that realize we are better than they were the heat are a great team. They've got shooters they've got defenders they've got playmakers. I just thought that the referees played a role that that the NBA going to have to look at this and say, is this the game we want to? We want the referees thinking about calls every time jump shooter jumps up to we want the sort of touch fouls too. We want the inconsistency when you watch game seven of the Rockets Finder last night the referees let's go. There was so much frenetic I don't know if you stayed up late and. I'm sure you did too. I did insanity actually a problem. I actually had a problem with got foster teeing up Chris Paul at the Chris. Paul was talking to him in a way that absolutely deserved a technical I. Know You said Phantom Fouled by Janas and I, think if INA vacuum I show you that play and say, Hey, this is going to be a call that's made with zero time on the clock without the context of the rest of the game you're probably saying who makes that call it in that spot I think immediately on the heels of that inexplicable call that Steve Jabbie Johnny I've had a problem west since he was officiating Knicks Games. In twenty years ago Steve Jabbed back that call up new do not make that call in that spot. You make that call in any spot that was great defense by Gordon. Credit the doors burke for calling him out because he's he's supposed to be the end all and be all there when you have Steve Jabbie rules expert you sort of defer to him. Doris Burke was not having it David. Because it was outrageous. First of all the fact that Middleton hit the free the three free throws that is not as relevant to me because that that's do just fyi to hit three in a row. But. That's not a foul at that point in the game of a conference semifinals, even a game to forget a game seven game one or whatever game you just don't call it and the Jaanus foul if anyone Hussein right now that that wasn't a makeup call doesn't understand how games go. That was a makeup call on Janas and it was the right thing to do because the right team won that game the heat should have won that game, but they should have won it not on Butler's free throws with no time left on the clock I think I agree with every single one of your takes was a makeup call I. Don't think that without the context. The context of the rest of the game I. think that's a bad call. But when you hold it in direct comparison to what immediately happened before it with that drug foul call, the honest thing looks like a flagrant foul compared to what happened with going drag it. So better team one Miami he made us nervous at the end Jimmy Butler for the love of God call timeout, but we will get to extreme. Heat reaction in the big Sui. Let's give some attention to the Miami. Marlins, and you're rooting for the MARLINS. Right? You're rooting for this season even though I, mean, I think a large chunk of you doesn't want Derek jeter to have any success professionally I don't know if you consider yourself a professional rival how you must be conflicted watching the seem you've spoken about it here with me on the on the local hour. But are you getting sort of sucked in by this playoff chases mutated as it is. I'm rooting for Michael and I'm rooting for other people in the organization I think they're seven of them. Left jeeter hasn't fired I'm not rooting for Jeeter on the business side at all because I want obviously by comparison I want people and him to realize that hey, maybe enisa selfish of me to say and I'm honest with you I don't want him to all of a sudden be selling out and all of a sudden. Get a huge deal and all of a sudden getting naming rights deal because even though it's three years later it it just makes me look less competent and the more that he can't do what he says he could do better than I did the better I feel that that's off the field is so honest. I appreciate. I appreciate the transparency because many people might accuse you of that and you're like just wearing it. Yup, absolutely. True. Who would accuse me of that? I mean that's if you don't have some bit of Schadenfreude in you then you're just not looking deep enough and so do do I have happiness at his misfortunes every single time do I gloat about it every single time however? In a contract year for Michael who is someone who I care about I want and for the fans of south. Florida. Listen I wanted to win every year that I was there and they haven't won in so long it's been seventeen years that means the way I've always looked at is generational And take my son who was born in o-3. In June vote three so he never got to. Obviously didn't remember three I never was able to have him at an October game I never was able to show him playoff games and everybody born his year there now, seniors in high school. And I can't stand the fact that there could be children who get born and then go to school and become adults and never saw their team make the playoffs. So I, want the Marlins to make the playoffs this year, not just for him but for everybody in south Florida whether it's sixty game season or not you. If you're in it, you're in it and no one remembers how many people in Los Angeles who were seniors in high school in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one, say to themselves man that was strike shortened season that was not fun at all. That was split season. It wasn't real. Forget it. You're the world champion. Want to hear something pathetic and sad. In, my lifetime I have a memory of one Cleveland browns. Playoff game. One in your whole life forget your school life. You're telling your whole, my whole life, my whole life because remember they went away and became the Ravens and it was a couple years before they came back in the ravens immediately became good and went on to win two super bowls You can tell that stayed with me a little bit during that transitional time I actually supported the. Miami Dolphins and they made the playoffs. But in terms of like my absolute passion, my Cleveland Browns made the playoffs in believe it was two thousand and one and it was a heartbreaking game, a loss comeback victory by the Pittsburgh steelers the hated rival, and that is my one playoff memory of the team alongside Chelsea that I support the most. So yeah, I feel terrible for your son. Is Art Modell the most hated owner or is it Jeffrey? In your career Oh boy it is art. It is quite. Quite, easily, and I do not like Jeffrey all respect to you but. I don't like Jeffrey at all but art art was way worse. Art was when you remember for the listeners who don't now art modell under cover of night in theory although of course, it's not true but there were moving trucks that were brought to Cleveland and you and there was video as I recall of those moving trucks in the dark moving stuff out of Cleveland into. Baltimore. Do you have an any owlry when that happened? I was I wanna say I was probably nine years old I remember having the sports I hung up the sports illustrated cover that was made a character a caricature of art modell. I hated Art Modell I would throw Dr said I legitimate I had a dartboard in my room I put it on the Dartboard Yeah I. Mean He ripped away the football team that I loved that I loved I, didn't really grab the scope of it and I do remember sort of. Instantaneously, there was already talk about the NFL is going back to Cleveland. This will not stand because everybody agreed in the way that it went down and leveraging the stadium situation and the city of Cleveland was willing to give stadium I it seemed as though he balked at the entire negotiation and wasn't that all serious about keeping that team in Cleveland much like you were a cowboy. Hat to recruit other cities he got swept up in it and his heart was set on Baltimore and look. It's worked out for that franchise art modell plenty of people say that he should be a hall of Famer because of the contributions to the game, and if you look at it, it's hard to argue but I think that that sin for me is too much to. I always forever hold a grudge. Even though he's long gone now that one's top Jeffrey I didn't like because I felt like Jeffrey was just openly lying to me I just I. I know deadspin had the whole thing. Well, let's talk about the deadspin. Article that sort of they got their hands on some of your financials nightmare with one of my worst days of my career and we talk about it and for the uninitiated can you explain exactly what happened there with deadspin story? So we're we're a private company while like you and fans think that it's a public company and you should know Everythi macos on the reality is that you don't because we have our own financials and is completely private. How much money is spent on various things who how much money is one how much money lost? The every company has financial statements. Baseball's interesting in that. We've got several auditors every year who audit the financial statements. The union gets a look at the financial statements. The League gets a look at the financial statements, and of course, we as as a company get your financial statements. I had to sign every year the financial statements to say as President of the team that I've read them because come not just with numbers but there's also pros and financial statements were you explain different categories explain different numbers and you have to represent it as a legal document where you are representing that certain things are happening and here's why the numbers are the numbers. But those financial statements are absolutely private in a public company where you buy shares of stock, you can see a company's financial statements and audited financial statements. So one day I am. Doing, whatever it is I do and when you get a call from PJ loyal, who is the head of communications? Generally, the 'cause are because something's going on, it's not hey how you doing. It's all right. We had a player arrested or we have to deal with something that happened or did you hear what the owner said or did you hear what's going on in baseball? You'RE GONNA have to respond or you have an interview request there's something going on. In my wildest dreams it never occurred to me that I would get a phone call from PJ sane. We have a serious problem what was going on as we were trying to get a ballpark and we had made statements and I had made statements that the Marlins were losing money. And I had been very consistent about that. And I would never get into details about how much. I would never get into details about my definition of losing money. I would say that I worked for an individual owner and when the owner has to write a check at the end of the year that to me is losing money. When an owner gets money given to him at the end of the year that's making money. That's the definition to me of making money or losing money because that's how our owner defined it, and that is what I have to do at the end of the year say, Hey, could you wire in seventeen million dollars or hey, we need your wire. were sending you seventeen million dollars. So the call comes in and says David. It looks as though deadspin is about to print. Our financial statements and I said that can't be true. Obviously they're not real because there's no way that they would have them. It's impossible. We had never given them to the public and the public had asked for our financial statements during the negotiation for the stadium and we were a hard now and we had a lot of criticism from people like you and Dan and everyone in the media and all the fans because because there's a voyeuristic quality to seen someone else's financial statements it's like. When someone buys you dinner and you want to look at the check to see how much it is you can see how much the person's tipping everybody sort of does that look even though they claim they don't, but they do so now multiply that by thousand that is how badly people wanted to see financials, how much to Samson get paid or how much money are they making her losing? deadspin. Somehow. Got The financial statements of the Florida Marlins and they chose to write an article and go public. And only show. Three years where the Marlins were making money. And they didn't show the entire financial statement they only chose and Cherry pick certain parts of it. To write an article that the Marlins were liars. And it was a firestorm I I had never been a part of anything like that. Truthfully to this day, what were the consequences I imagine you heard from a lot of Politicians because you were going to go sheeting stadium deal in your crying poor. So at that point, you're probably thinking, oh no, this deal. Is On life support. I. Might Not be able to get a stadium. So, let me tell you what I did. I think I can see. We had to decide how we were going to handle this. And I made the decision over the objection of. Jeffries? Pr Advisor of PJ and of Jeffrey. I went behind everyone's back. And I sat down with a writer for the Miami Herald with our actual financial statements. Year by year by year. Because I wanted that writer who had been incredibly negative towards us his name he still writes for the Herald his name is Doug. Hanks. We chose the Herald and we chose him as the business writer because we thought he had the best opportunity to look at financial statements listen to me talk and then writing an article disputing what deadspin had written. We couldn't let it go normally when something bad happens you put it away and you don't make it worse by bringing it up again but this story became so big and it got in the way of getting a ballpark because the public and the commissioners and the mayor everyone lost their mind because they had cover which was yeah they're not showing us our statement. So what can we say we believe him but now they saw these statements and said, wait a minute you don't eat public money. It was bad. Could you threaten to sue deadspin? Now, we only threatened to sue deadspin over that over my racial comments that went public when I was taped incorrectly that then we had lawyered up and threatened to sue for the me. Yeah. Yeah Yeah. To a different story. We sat with the Herald we went through the financials and Doug Hanks wrote a front page article because deadspin missed. A did not properly explain our financial statements because in them it explained exactly where the money went that where the prophet went the years the Marlins were profitable it went to pay down debt debt that we needed to re borrow in order to put money into the stadium. You didn't show these financial politicians you just mentioned that. So obviously, my mind goes to the place. Well, one of these big teams I was paying the Marlins, all that rev share money leak this. You know I didn't spend until this second one minute considering who leaked it because I've never I've always been a consequentialist. So why would I spend a second worrying about who did something when I had to deal with the fact that it was done? When the genie's out of the bottle am I going to spend time figuring out why someone rubbed the lamp now I gotTa deal with the fact that I gotTa do my three wishes now. I actually am jealous of that trait because you just deal with the task at hand all your band with his devoted to. All right how do we fix this because a large part of me would be so pissed and I, would not trust anybody major league baseball because that's the obvious place. So now that you're thinking about it for the first time. Does that make sense that theory. It could have been from. It could have been from the Union. It could have been from an owner who didn't like US or who didn't want us to succeed. It could have been from owners who were trying to get ballparks and couldn't and were upset it could have been from cities I could have been from any myriad places. Do I think that someone would directly try to hurt our bid to get a stadium? You're damn right idea because we did things that baseball was not necessarily comfortable with throughout the years we did things that people were not comfortable with. We were involved in that transaction or no to that upset a lot of people within baseball There were a lot of people who didn't want John Henry to get the Red Sox within baseball I mean there's there's a lot that went on over the years. So could someone of purposely tried to make it so we would either wouldn't get a ballpark or would have to put more money in yeah. But again, why spend a second on that Mike because it's such a waste of energy when there's such a premium on hours in the day I, want to stay here for a little bit because there obviously political ramifications. Ramifications internally. I'm sure there were people a high ranking officials within your own organization that were sort of caught off guard by exactly what was in some of these financials but it seemed as though you guys were Kinda punished by Major League baseball because you mentioned the players association guys were forced to inject a little bit more money into that. Was that a residual effect of this scandal or is that something different David that was yet another scandal? I got called by. Rob Manfred. In this was before he was commissioner. And there was an issue and. Unfortunately, here Miami you're very Miami centered. But in baseball Miami's one of thirty teams, the Union and. The owners were fighting about revenue sharing proceeds. What what the rule say is all these teams who get revenue sharing of which the marlins are one the Tampa. Bay Rays are one teams get a lot of money tens of millions of dollars in revenue sharing, which is money coming from big market teams like the Yankees and going to small revenue teams like the Marlins but the rule is in the collective bargaining agreement that revenue sharing dollars must be used to improve your on the field product. And what the Union believed is that there were teams taking money and pocketing that money and not using it for on the field product because using revenue for on the field product means. Money to players in the union. Yes. So that's sort of the backdrop of the dispute between owners and the Union right and it wasn't just a union that believe this it was fans. Drew. got. This wasn't this. Wasn't just some Kooky theory that the agents and the players said, Hey, wait a second Jeffrey Loria pocketing this money. No we had is we saw was on the field. We understood a little bit about revenue sharing and we felt like Holy Hell Jeffrey Loria is lining his pockets with the Yankees and Red Sox, money. So. Of course you did. But it never actually ended up that way because what we had to do every year when you're a revenue sharing recipient. This is not talked about either mikey teams who get revenue sharing have to certify a letter to Major League. Baseball and the Union how those proceeds are being used. So I would write the letter and the letter would be dear bud and Tony or whoever was running the Union you know don fear or Gr's whoever was. The MARLINS got forty, two million dollars in revenue sharing and we used it to one. Pay Our number one draft pick three million dollars to to improve our minor league system because that counted as improving your onfield product three, we did not non tender player X. so you go through a laundry list it gets approved by the Union approved by the commissioner and then you move on to the next year. It was just one of my annual jobs I had to write this letter saying what were using revenue sharing for at the time in a city that you're not talking about because it's not Cleveland and not Miami Pittsburgh was the team that was in trouble because Bob. The owner was actually taking distribution. This is real name Bob nutting. That's his name actual. Still owns the team. Actually acknowledging distributions being. Taken. Jeffrey. Never got distributions. We never gave him money never acknowledged getting it. Bob Nothing's mistake. No there's one time one year when Jeffrey got a distribution. Now he got a management fee like every general partner of every partnership, which is totally different right but owned ninety five percent of the team. Can I see on that because I just always thought you guys were doing creative bookkeeping and look he had to write a check at the end of the year. You're very careful with the words that you're choosing, but we saw some of the red. Shared dollars and I just had to think like this management fee that's public record. We have no idea what Jeffrey Loria gets paid this he can get paid anything can't you just sort of shift some funds around and take from this budget and at the end of the year you say, well, Jeffrey Loria in terms of an owner capacity he had a write a check but in terms of managing partner Oh, my God, he's paying himself quite the salary. Yes that would be great because that would be like the mets saying they lose two hundred, million dollars a year as the Matt's but they get three hundred, million a year as owners of the Sports Net New York so therefore as a group assuming you own the same percentage of each, you're actually net positive I. agree that would be amazing but in Jeffries cases management fee was a tenth of the losses all it would do if he brought his manager Feta Zeros reduce of losses. Let me tell you that where that management fee came from when he bought into the Expos he owned only Eight. Twelve percent of the team. But as the general partner of the team of a huge partnership with a lot of partners, which is very normal. The general partner gets a management fee. It's what club Brochu. The general partner of the Expos God before Jeffrey. So Jeffrey did a partnership agreement he got paid a management when he moved to. Florida. It was the partnership that moved not Jeffrey. So Jeffrey had partners in Florida and was running the partnership but that management fee is you know several million dollars three million dollars two and a half million dollars nothing compared to what the annual losses were.

And now, another edition of obvious news from GEICO. A study says that soft talkers do not make great radio personalities.

APP. So switching is a really smart decision. How to Steve Feel about this I love the Kyko, use it all the time. That's all these news from guy calm. So you've always maintained Jeffrey was losing money every year and in reality, the only actual money he was gaining wasn't even real because it was just the franchise appreciating in value the millionaires don't say millionaires and become billionaires by losing tens of millions of dollars every year I just never believed that it's possible like the Miami Heat say they don't make money that they broke even when the big three. Were here I just don't believe it I. Just this is business people don't get into business to lose tens of millions of dollars I understand sports franchises are for the most part vanity investments. anyways but it just doesn't make any sense to me. I feel like I'm getting got feel like there's some big secret that all these owners no, and they just say, yeah, man I'm losing money it's not the. In every form of life millionaires use creative bookkeeping to game the system why wouldn't they game with professional sports franchises? They do so there's several factors if you really want to get technical and the one, the first one is not at all, it's called the ego premium. That is what people will do when they own a franchise. It's sort of the price. Of joining country. Club, and so you you have to pay money to be a part of that club and whether it's the cost of the team or the annual operation of the team. But there's several things you get when you lose money as a professional franchise when you're the partner of a partnership that loses money, those losses flowed down to you personally. So owners of teams get law who lose money get to take those losses and apply them to the gains they have in their other lives whether it's selling arts. If you own a piece of art that you bought for a million and you sold it for two million, you have a million dollar tax to pay. But if you lost a million dollars on your baseball team, you can take. That million dollar loss apply it to the million dollar gain in art, and therefore you pay no tax on the gain in art if you sell four hundred, million dollars worth of Yahoo Stock and you have a gain of two hundred million dollars but you've got losses in the Mavericks. Of Two hundred million dollars than you do not have to pay the capital gain on your increase in Yahoo Stock. there. are absolute bent benefits to losses that you can use where these owners have huge tax liabilities and those tax liabilities get reduced by getting these losses on top of that, and now we're getting terrible. But at at early in the morning, there's something called depreciation. When you buy a franchise, you get to you get something called depreciation and Amortization, and that is a tax concept where you look like you don't have losses but you get losses and you can then use those losses. Yeah. I mean my knowledge of this. You're I'm punching well above my way class right now I'm trying to keep up I have an LLC. So I do have a basic understanding well, well, if I can see where you can sort of manipulate the system and we're losses are actually good. For you then I got to imagine in certain respects when you say good, let me just make sure you do the math not dollar for dollar right? Right. When you lose a dollar, the tax benefit you get from that dollar is not a full dollar, right? It's just the the loss is not actually before right to say. So if me who was never good at math I, went to Miami Dade College, Remedial Courses, I, hate him at. So if I could figure out that the system could be manipulated. I got to imagine Jeffrey Loria is manipulating the system far better than I am. So I just on the surface I. Understand you say, well, he had to write a check at the end of the year, but just commonsense tells me. Jeffrey Loria is making money every year whether it's a he he's gotta be. He can't be news on year over year. So that's that's not true well as possible. So what happened was his investment in the team with such the reason why kept working? Is that his initial investment in the team was low enough that with the money that he was losing each year, we would treat it like acquisition debt. We would say all right basis. It's like you just bought the Marlins for eighty million. Now it's ninety, million, one, hundred and twenty degrees job of trying to explain this one acquisition ads mentality of it. But at some point, if you don't have enough cash or wire the mets selling right now. Well, I always thought because Bernie madoff took the wilpon and then was a divorce and they just don't have the opposite in cash flow. But their team is worth more and more money every year. In the pandemic, why would you sell when your team is not as worth as much as you want it to be because you no longer have the cash to actually fund the OP, the annual losses that you have been funding every year because you know you're making more in asset appreciation but even though you would be making more this year, if you're the mets, the will peiser like we don't have any more cash to wait for that asset appreciation. That's when a team sells. But look at Jeeter's group their level of investment to start with so significant. That for them to keep adding annual losses year after year, it's it's a math equation that doesn't work because they don't think they'll get that out of the team if and when they sell and whatever number of years. That's why as teams trade. Now, for these huge numbers, the appetite to lose money annually is going to decrease. The old owners who have smaller entry numbers have a higher appetite to lose money annually. All right. Let's talk about. We've talked about the business of baseball. I'm a little cross eyed right now trying to follow. I. Wasn't very good at math. Let's talk about the actual team the Miami Marlins. Five hundred now I think they they have more home wins on the road than they do at home i. think they only have two home wins. At home, they lose to Jay's last night six Oh Sanchez is an exciting prospect lots of comparisons to Jose Fernandez. What do you make of that comp? Do. Not, view Jose Fernandez, I've been told he has three pitches were Jose to. You know Sanchez has a chance to be atop the rotation guy. He has a different type of body than Jose. He has a different personality. When you see him on the field, he smiles a bit but Jose just had this love of baseball and love of life that I have not compared any pitcher I've seen to Jose when he was alive so I mean I just I wouldn't make that he looks to me to be more like Josh Johnson hopefully without the injuries where he is a workhorse where he can have a a sub three era we don't take give enough credits Johnson. What a great pitcher he was. Dot Hurt. Yeah. You're absolutely right in terms of he had I want to say about maybe two and a half seasons there were if he injured, he would come back after a couple of weeks and and it it wouldn't take too much from them. But. You don't have this epic lists of Great Marlins, pitchers because they're not here long enough Jose Fernandez in terms of stuff. And, performance in what could have been I think most people say well, that's the greatest pitcher in marlins franchise history but Josh Johnson there's there's a real argument to be made I'm curious to who you would pick because right now and I'm probably missing somebody. Say Josh Lawrence Josh Johnson is a pretty good argument when you're trying to discover who the best pitcher marlins franchise history is as a career or as Marlin as a Marlon dempster's in there to Brad Penny actually. Brad. Penny might be the Guy Grad Penny was great. BECCA was great. Kevin Brown was great but short allied. All these guys have short careers. So the MARLINS are difficult franchise to yeah. This has the Marlins have difficult franchises sort of name. Who's the best pitcher? I'm curious as to. WHO Had A great career with the marlins regularly it ricky Nolasco broke bread pennies record write for most wins or career for Marlins, wins Johnson was the best. He was so good and he was sexiest cerebral guy. He opened the new ballpark and he was the losing pitcher against the cardinals in the first game in April twelve but he's ball was so heavy had such great lower body Tom. seaver just died last night and people ask who's your comp to Tom Seaver in terms of pitching Josh Johnson for me? would be the comp because of the power stuff because of the great lower body and strength that Josh Johnson had. That's what Tom Seaver was known for. If you've never watched Tom seaver pitch because you're too young, he was incredible. Yeah. Roy. Halladay has one of the more memorable perfect games. Now, we live in an era where someone will throw a no hitter and it won't even make sportscenter Roy Halladay has one of those perfect games that people remember I. Think it was because you guys sold the tickets but. That game there was a feeling in the air that this was a legitimate possibility and it might be holiday or might be Josh Johnson both pitchers were at the top of their game. We thought about the possibility of having double no hitters when we had Jose Pitch Josh John Stan would pitch. There were certain pitchers who we had and when you're facing them when Dontrelle Willis faced. Randy Johnson. I remember talking to the clubhouse staff. Were you that that was exciting? WAS ON ESPN that was really the national sort of signal to everybody Dontrelle had arrived. That was when he became a national Sewri it was a local story and he started seeing a bump in the crowds but when Randy Johnson and the diamondbacks came into town man, I could I remember that game so vividly and you started believing in the team because you guys won that game. I think. Alex. cintron. Put them ahead. Early on and it was a comeback victory I think, I'm not exactly sure on the details but I know I was at Game I. Remember I was sitting in the fish tank I was so excited about Dontrelle Willis I'm hoping that you guys have some good Dontrelle Willis stories from your time over there as this is happening because that was super exciting actually made the All Star game. So he moved the needle more than Jose did financially. And Jose would draw more people. But. It was at a lower average ticket price. So financially, when Dontrelle started more people bought higher price tickets that went Jose started. That's a that's a bit of a revelation right there because I always thought Jose was probably the guy it was either. It was a two man race in that respect but dontrelle higher priced tickets. Now that I think about Dontrelle probably although he wasn't consistent and Don would go through these even an oath three. Even in three, you guys weren't even playing them come the postseason because you couldn't really trust him. He was not in the rotation. He was put into the bullpen in the in the O. Three postseason. Yeah and he couldn't really be trusted. He would go through these peaks and valleys, and then he had put together that great season where loss out the carpenter where I'm sure you guys felt like he should have won cy young. He definitely should that bothered us that that's when we felt that the Marlins we had won a world series. Yes. Lost a few players but then we signed a bunch of players and we felt as though that writers were just so upset with the marlins. So upset that we had won the world series so upset that we were successful low payrolls that they took it out on Dontrelle that was. A season where we were furious, not made the playoffs but the fact that Dontrelle didn't get a CY young was a joke he was unhittable. This is after three. This is after the title and we couldn't make the playoffs in he was the best pitcher in baseball that year and the marlins unfortunately for more and Marlins fans know this. They have a lot of great players that have come through those. Players, that were great for a very long time for that franchise I'm curious who you think that that you were part of these marlins teams who will among that group of players. Under the the Loria regime might actually get their Jersey retired by the Miami marlins because you look out there there aren't a lot. Well. There's zero is I. It's is sixteen honored. What's what's the deal was number sixteen? Don't even get me started. I do want to get you started this angers doesn't it? I'm not going to get started on hose I'm not gonNA talk about it. Okay. I'm really not it's a joke. For and I'm not talking about the statue I'm talking about. that. The absolute two things happened that should not have happened. Period. One Jeffrey did and one jeeter did and they're both equally wrong. Number One. Karl Barth was the first president of the Florida marlins franchise he passed away before the Marlins could even play a game. The MARLINS had retired number five in honor of Carl Bar. That was the first retired number. Logan Morrison who I love I traveled with him to visit the troops. We thought he could be great for us and it just didn't work out. He wanted to wear number five and Jeffrey unretired called Burgers number to give to Logan Morrison, and it never got retired again. That's just wrong. You do not give a player retired number I don't care what the player begs you to do how much she wants to honor his own father who had passed away whatever the reason is you don't unretire number two. When you've got someone like Jose. Who, pass away and you are honoring him in the way that we were trying to honor him whether it's with a statue. That would be put in the East Plaza which he's deserving of or wet weather. It is a retired number whether it is some sort of plaque whatever the case is you don't screw around with that when you the team because you're so angry that you paid one point two, billion, you don't do it. It's petty it's wrong and it's joke. So and so this is not anti jeter there to situations with the marlins that can never be undone because they were wrong and they can't be fixed. So there are no retired numbers. Sorry Mike. No it's it's hadn't thought about no, it's all right and I I saw you get a little heated and I know Jose's that emotional topic for you and you sort of nudged me away from pushing on it and I know you said you didn't WanNa get started in you kind of got. Yeah really. Didn't know call barter but I was I I ran a franchise as the team President for sixteen. Years. It is sickening for me to think that a future president owner would do something to undo what I had done. And I'm watching it happened when I'm alive. I would not undo what highs Inga did or what Karl Barter did or honor that is bestowed upon people through an organization that would like if someone buys the Yankees. From steinbrenner eventually and it's no longer in their family and they say, you know what? There's twenty Dan retired numbers if you WANNA wear number one. Just taken number one it's a joke. I can see why it's also a personal thing for you not just because of the Jose connection that you had. But also when you put it in those terms, most people don't get to see themselves written away from history that usually happens after they pass and it's happened in sort of instantly to. So I can't even imagine how how difficult that must be for you to process I. Think we. Should end the podcast on your review this week because we had some really good stuff I had all sorts of questions about the mets sale. As now they're moving into an exclusive negotiation with Cohen and wanted to get your thoughts there. But we'll say that for next week as well as this very interesting proposition about an MLB cup, you know with my soccer routes that made me perk up. When I was preparing for today, because the audience may not know this your listeners, we don't talk about the show before it happens I don't have the questions I don't know which direction it's going to go and you prod me to remember certain things that I don't think about and that sort of your genius and what you do, and then we have these funny conversations back and forth. Is I was thinking about things. I would have guaranteed that you were going to bring up the Baseball Cup. So it's only that you didn't because as a soccer guy how could you not? I. Love It, and that's a good way to sort of make good with a lot of these minor league. It's very sad story. What happened to Minor League, baseball obviously a lot of enterprises have been affected by the global pandemic. These small towns and for the most part, I know there's some larger markets affected by this too. But Minor League. Baseball I just WANNA get with you probably next week on Minor League baseball as a whole. This is a good idea to help. Maybe recoup some of the loss money the lost revenue for these markets I see you hold it up a little teeny tiny space you don't think. This is first of all. Let's give a preview for next week. The chances of the Baseball Cup happening are about as likely as me donkey on a regulation. Hope no get get biometrics going because I wanNA see. I WANNA see that so bad because there's money to be made, this is an additional TV contract. You could sell it as a separate entity and there's revenue sharing for smaller towns, I? Think it's a great idea and your major league owner you're going to want your best pitchers pitching in a meaningless game against minor league teams I will to the tune of maybe fifty million dollars in my pocket. Okay. I. Remind is that the number that you think could come to each team? This is not Europe. Okay. What about twenty? Million Dollars yes? Yes. I be twenty million dollars fifteen million dollars. Fifteen. Million Dollars on the ground you're not gonNA, pick it up. Can I pitch like my number five starter? Will be really funny when when teams are having to play their own minor league affiliate and call up the Minor League affiliates Best Player to Pitch Against that minor league affiliate, you're GonNa have a bunch of upsets because baseball is random. You get a Lotta upsets in soccer hell. Even some of the top flight players are playing some lower division players I think it's a great idea. It's an additional television contract to sell three million dollars. You don't see you see three million dollars on the floor. You'RE NOT GONNA, pick it up. Yeah. But Not for the Baseball Cup now. It's going to be more than three million per team. All right. We didn't get your review last week. There wasn't one host of nothing personal David Samson go out and check out that podcast is great. What is your review for the week? I want to do a documentary and it's called Madman the Steve Madden story it's on Netflix so Steve Madden is the person who I knew from that he was the shoe guy because my kids liked Steve Madden, shoes and I didn't know that Steve Madden this whole time before I watched this I didn't know he was a person. Wolf of Wall Street though, right. Like I. Thought it was I did not know that was real. You thought that they just yields like a real person. To play Serum Addin, they used an actor to play Steve Madden Wolf of Wall Street, and I assume that it was sort of part of the dramatic story that they took this kid and made him and he was a little kid because he was played by a really young actor who I'd seen in some other shows. I thought it was Jason. Reitman. But I think it's his last name is Google that could be or something he's not Jason Reitman. But in any case I, it did not occur to me that person Steve Madden, I knew the company had gone public but I thought they made up that it was Steve Madden. So this documentary. taught me a that Steve Madden's guy. I had no idea that it was real that the real guy went to prison I'd no idea. He had become a prison of a convicted felon advocate and that he hired people he met in prison it reminded me of what Albert Brooks would have done if he could have to Don Cheeto in out of sight in a different. World. Albert Brooks would have hired Don cheadle outside of prison and had him working with him if you haven't watched out of sight and you`re Listening to this, watch it immediately with George Clooney Jennifer Lopez Albert Brooks Inbound Geel and then rams but Steve Madden in real life hired these men and it is such an interesting story about a driven man who's obsessed with shoes and now has a convicted felon operating a huge part of his huge shoe business and it was phenomenal. I enjoyed it. It's not very long. It was very informative and it made me WANNA buy Steve, madden shoes other than the fact that I realized that I can't by Steve Madden shoes. They don't make mail seaman and shoes anymore because they did back in over three I remember when a lot of getty is where rocking my see madden uncomfortable shoes look like clogs. They're very. He's into platforms right but now he's doing sort of. Shoes he walks around looks staring down at women's feet. I was not aware that I don't think again maybe this is part two that I actually I don't think Steve Madden makes men's shoes at least it was not one pair of men's shoes in the entire show I. I definitely had to Parisi's seaman shoes that I saw some more Orlands, playoff games and going over to friends house watching the road he was a real guy. Yeah. I, knew man was. A real guy I I knew she was a real guy I. I know there are some companies that have like a a real name that you just assume Oh, that's named after somebody and is just totally fabricated but after wolf of Wall Street because I knew that was sort of based on a true story I didn't assume they made the C man part up. So my take away from wall. Street had nothing to do with the Steve Madden part by. Focus I'm Margot Robbie and trying to figure out how that would work because I was on Wall Street and I never saw Margot Robbie I never had any sort of midget tossing I never had any of that. So that was disappointing. But in any case, I can only tell you that it's worth it to learn about his story and especially now with what's going on in Florida with voting rights for convicted felons and how how the impact that has an how you can actually get a second chance and it's really is worth watching. All right and next week after your compliance video and what to call little people we will circle back. But it was called in Wilford. Wall Street I. Know I know you. You're helped by the context but I, I just have to call Ya much Mike. David Samson. Nothing personal. We'll talk next week about this MLB Cup any any chance that I mean if you listen to the local hours outside of the ones that you have always been arguing for the NBA to do this. So I got super excited because MLB, you're absolutely going to have a situation where the Fort Wayne ten caps can win the whole thing a David Samson nothing personal. Thank you so much for the time. He talk and heat reaction coming up next on the big with the whole cast characters. We'll see you did you know Geico's now offering an extra fifteen percent credit on car and motorcycle policies? That's fifteen percent on top of what Geico could already save you. So what are you waiting for your dentist actually believe you and your flashing every day absolutely great time and you're cutting down on your sweet. So of course wonderful. Then I don't even need to look in their great see in six months. There's never been a better time to switch to geico save an extra fifteen percent when you switch by October seventh limitations apply visit GEICO DOT COM for details.

"Talk. The company has released a new device called. Stop Your Amazon Alexa from listening to you. Meanwhile you're smart CB just look at life like. I no kidding. No kidding. That was such a revelation to me. When when I got my TV my TV is spectacular. I've been. Dealing with an older TV for quite some time and is at the store or like right before Christmas in prices were sick. What how how could this seventy? Some inch four K. U. HD? Whatever that stuff is TV be seven hundred books on. Jack because there are lots of poor people in Asia, willing to build them and it's so light. I can pick it up with my hands. That's not the reason it's not no, that's right. They make their money off the data collection, right? They subsidize it with data delayed. So the TV's cheaper than it should be, they want me to buy it because I had a TV were they were collecting zero data i. had. A DUMB TV. Now I got a SMART TV and they're probably listening to my conversations in addition to you know every single show I watch and how long I watch what ads do I skip and Blah Blah all that data crtv tiptoeing away from your wife's panty drawer sewing two thousand dollar TV seven, hundred dollars because the they make it up all the data the collecting Yang kept telling us during the debates. Data is more valuable than oil is a commodity in the world right now which is astounding excellent point and that's why they're grilling the titans of tech on. Capitol. Hill Yeah. Maybe right now as we speak breaking news breaking news. Okay. Break King. Real breaking news like actually bring out Brandon the donkey. When news breaks the donkey brays for some reason Oregon's Democratic Governor Kate Brown or some reason that's his job Jack. Kate Brown said that federal agents have clash with protesters in Portland will begin a phased withdrawal from the city's downtown area on Thursday acting secretary. Of Homeland Security Chad Howlin Wolf confirmed that he and Brown reached a joint plan to end the violent activity in Portland Directed Federal Properties law enforcement officers that plan includes the. Presence of Oregon State police in downtown Portland, he said in other words. We're not withdrawing the troops unless you protect federal property. So hail protect federal properly. Thank you I'm not sure I followed that closely enough to Are the protesters in agreement with the famous crawl. Did they negotiate with the protesters for a phased withdrawal or are they just stating there will be a fate withdrawal like we're going to there's going to be a phased withdrawal of al Qaeda from Volusia and this is how we're GonNa do well, the federal agents are the phased withdrawal. neier watering not the Rieter. So they're they're being supplanted by the local people right? Okay I. Get you right so Riders might still be there and fight the most interesting. Next step to observe is to what extent does that take fuel away from the riots that is nonstop right now, it's trump's troops that are causing this right if he hadn't gone in with the troops, you wouldn't have all this mayhem well prior to the. The federal. Going in there the Federal Officers it was the Portland pd that was the target of the abuse and rocks and bottles and the rest of it. So a yeah, we'll we'll have to see but again, this is a liberal politician who's been unwilling. To criticize the militants. thinking she still holds the levers to control the militants and she doesn't. Now whether this will take a twenty percent of the energy out of the riots or eighty percent I don't know that's why I'm interested in seeing. Yeah. Well, this'll be this. This could Put put lie to a popular narrative of the last several weeks. Yeah. Could well listen the point of view of me a William Bar, really any sane person to my mind is you have to protect the federal courthouse. You can't let it get burnt to the ground and if you're not going to do it like you're supposed to with local resources, the feds are going to have to do with themselves. Okay. Now you're saying you'll do it. Okay. Fine. feds are out simple easy. Here's something I actually don't know Dr Fauci is up on. MSNBC talking. About Hydro Chloroquine Hydroxy Chloroquine Jack Whatever you call the that's the. That's the fish tank cleaner. Not precisely notes a drug usually used for malaria and other conditions. I've been taken fish tank cleaner. Go ahead for got confused a little bit and that's fine. Just take it with a meal. I actually don't know if this stuff works or not. Because I've I've seen stories I know for fact, I actually know of a doctor who's Taken themselves. So is it a completely phony? No. Completely real or is it inbetween? You'll never hear this in the media, but it shows great promise especially combined with zinc in. Oh. What is the other thing that gets thrown in? Zithromax or? Antibiotics for early cases pre hospitalized not terribly sick seems to do a pretty good job of nippon it in the bud, a more studies are needed, etc it is. According to the studies I've seen and you know how these things change If you're in the late stages, it will do you know good in fact, might do you harm. So similar to take Theraflu, you gotta take it right when you get the flu and doesn't. Know much about that. But because it's become entirely about trump now, Anna Litmus test in the media trumper anti trump. Now nobody's talking about it. In grownup terms I know doctors are prescribing it absolutely. Yeah. The the the FDA cautioned against use of it outside of a clinical thing because of side effects and FDA is very cautious with the making sure things are safe before they give them keep an aquarium very clean. Yes. Ask Your doctor if hydroxy chloroquine is right for you in other words. Okay. You're poor catfish can't even see out the walls year aquarium. So dirty a drinking, all the cleaner. Selfish. But I feel great you should see my stool. Should not old boy. Now that's an invitation. We had a two hour two and a half hour meeting with Dr Yesterday. About my youngest in his situation and that sort of stuff but. She got on this thing. We were doing a phone thing because there's hardly any in person. Dr, stuff happening but she got on this thing about stool than just went on and on and on. Enthusiast. The gadget it I really get it completely. I. Fully Understand at this point. Can we talk about something else? A majority of Americans think canceled culture is a big problem. Glad to see that. How big a majority cancel culture joe refers to a form of boycott in which an individual usually celebrity. no because normal people are turned into celebrities by those who would drag them out into the street and beat them to death. It's because you were turned into a celebrity. That you got cancelled by your job because they think that now you're a twitter sensation, get to get rid of you. You don't by the way nobody will remember it next week at all this afternoon you know. Who has said something that offends some people is called out shunned. How big a problem do you think cancer culture is in the US Today Twenty eight percent I'll go with all adults before we break it down into parties Oh boy twenty, eight percent say a very big problem. TWANI six percent say somewhat big problem. So you're at fifty four percent well, okay for somewhat big and very big. Yeah. I'd like it to be bigger, but we can work with this. Not a problem is only thirteen. Wow. Good. Small problem thirty one. So in terms of people thinking, it's a problem at all your at what eighty six percent. Wow. Wow this is such a beautiful example of how. The vocal but brutal minority. Can do terrible damage and how they can terrorize people into silence. I mean with those numbers, nobody should ever lose their job for saying something unfortunate on twitter I mean especially if you add in and then they say, I didn't mean it in an offensive way I might be blank. So if anybody took it the wrong way apologize at that point there's roughly. Two percent of the population that thinks that person should still lose their job and it happens. Canceled Yeah, there's the opportunity nearly alone of voice to be that Guy True Gene Oh. Yeah. To me if I was GONNA write the story of this poll. The headline would be this even among Democrats nearly half believe it's a somewhat or very big problem forty, seven percent of Democrats are in the very big or somewhat big problem category at in with another thirty six percent small problem only fifteen percent of Democrats can't culture is not a problem. while. Is that did I feel hope I felt that in age yet don't set. There's nothing worse than hope. You can't be disappointed if you have no hold. That's right. Right? Don't get on the train. Takes you to disappointment Ville. I. Bought A ticket for a good outcome city. You WanNa. You WanNa step off on the platform at this is the way it's always gonna be Heights. Yeah well. That's why Dr Yarn don't Ride Trains like that trade let me off. I thought that was interesting. Yeah. That is interesting. Keep that around I want to memorize those numbers It's frightening. Of course, that's the history of militant horrifying politics movements. Well, yeah. Remember I've doing that study the French Revolution and reading about revolutions in general it's only about fifteen percent they think that it takes to pull off a revolution, right? Right I including a significant number of people who are thinking I'm not down with it really but you get the active fifteen percent to pull off the revolution. He got like another I think it was forty percent that. Are they more or less feel that way. They wouldn't go that far but they they more or less feel that way. Then he got I think I'd like twenty thirty percent chunk of they're scared to say anything about it. Yeah. You're easily into an offensive for small percentage left are really willing to resist that I would add that You can leverage your numbers through an increase in terror. Oh, sure if you are even more brutal and horrifying You can make your numbers have a bigger effect guillotines worse than canceled on twitter. There's no doubt about that ever had jumped off. The clearly clearly it's a, it's a bad outcome. Oh How Guillotine junction is the last stop on that train. Hey, you're better off just staying on the train going back to Centerville don't don't get off Guillotine junction. Armstrong and getty show. There's no place for violence and destruction of property peaceful protesters should be protected and arsonists. Anarchists should be prosecuted and local law enforcement can do that. Very well, secure benefit. All good good record. About I've we're not leaving. Until you're. told the governor gold the bear. Your city. Very. Good. About The president with his new side hustle feeding wood chipper. Well. He was in a car wash and a convertible. He's actually right outside Marine One the helicopter. Biden say yesterday. arsonists. An anarchist should be prosecuted Bingo. Bingo was happy to hear go. That's good. That's a perfectly reasonable thing to say credit where it's due. Finally finally, a Democrat politician saying that. Thank you, Joe. Trump said were the federal government's not gonNA pull trump troops out until the the local people can secure it. Well, it looks like that's been worked out but there are two different versions of what happened here. So you've got the post from the. Secretary of Department of Homeland Security that's wolf our. Very adult statement it's a very long statement while just read the first part. Over, the past twenty four hours, Governor Brown and I have been in regular communication and agreed to a joint plan to end the violent activity in Portland directed at Federal Properties in law enforcement officers? Okay. Kate now here's the. tweet. Within, the last hour from Governor Brown who had a different view of the apparently those after my discussions with vice president pence and others the federal government has agreed to withdraw at our officers from Portland. They have acted as an occupying force in brought violence of for God's sake. Keep electing. Communists. Kate Brown well, she's going to spin it as house. Gop nutjob she somehow strong arm the federal government from pulling their violent troops out which caused all the problems department homeland security stating basically the opposite. So Yeah the the Fed said you have. Two. Choices. Use local and state resources to secure the courthouse or we will, and she said okay, we'll use the state police. It's as simple as that. You know I've been meaning to A good piece in the dispatch today about. Reporters who are who are sowing both sides of how these things unfold at night and There's a great twitter feed. Yeah guys been inside the courthouse is the Insanity is as unfolded. This Mike Balsamo Yep lamenting the lack of balanced on the ground reporting in the city. Um and another reporter. But Anyway, here's an example of this woman Nancy Rahman her accounts detail the various players involved from rioters, setting fires to peaceful protesters pleading with them to stop to curious on lookers trying to comprehend the historic events unfolding in their city and the orderly chaos that inevitably ensues. Why are you doing this a young woman implores? Whoever listened you're giving them a reason to shoot at us when they start the fires we come and try to stop them the young man said he he he both put out the fires himself explains the crowd why the tactic is only making things worse so they're arguing with. The people who are starting fires and firing projectiles right in the anarchists and Marxists are like, yes, we want them to shoot at. You ask why we're here. That's our. That's our playbook trying to provoke a war kind of the whole anarchy thing I mean I hate to dome it down for you. But I'm an anarchist, and now I'm GonNa ask you just wants to stop stamping out our fires. You see if I fire stuff at this federal building and then they shoot at us that's that's that's my goal from the night you see fomenting revolution is violent perhaps the problem is we you and I have different goals. This what the anarchist should say to the peaceful protest I start to feel like we we don't see the same way I'm starting to think perhaps we should go our separate ways, but there was a video and I've been trying to find it. That I was talking about a month or so ago it was in Seattle and it was how the first violent started in Seattle, and it was such a good piece and I can't remember who is the Washington Post The New York Times where it was but they took very cellphone video of video they had security cameras they had it from different angles and everything like that of how these things unfold and you look at that and think How do you blame? How do you blame anybody? How would you stop this from happening? You had the protesters and the police up against each other on a barricade line and they're just you know they're people yelling each other and some of the protesters are doing nothing but some of the protesters throwing things at cops and some of the cops are handling it well, in some of the cops are not handling it well, and it's just it's just.

I, have no idea if you're going to get them butted up against each other in that situation. Maybe don't You know butt up against the cops. Armstrong and getty. The Armstrong and getty show.

So it will actually matter politically eventually. Yeah. But doesn't matter to the vote. who gets elected how can both those things we seem like it could be does it but I think it will be that makes unless he makes a terrible choice. A choice that turns out disastrous then that will suppress turnout maybe he goes with scare Mucci or something. And that'd be Horri-. I'm going to have to you the experts breakdown. Why did you want to hear the what the wildcard is for? Twenty twenty four? Okay. AFC turns thirty, five that year? Awesome. Ron Ao see Ron he's run.

All they do. Yes. Well. They'll. They'll probably be given a substantial portfolio so they can look busy and important. And probably will be fairly busy and important because they're clearly being groomed for the presidency that's enough of that. So the Florida marlins are a when they start playing baseball again, that team is not playing this entire week. Did you realize that they're taking an entire week off and when they do return? There's a decent chance they'll have almost entirely a different starting lineup and I'll read what Bob Nightingale soon because of the Cova tests. Wow. What Bob Nightingale said in the USA. Today, sports let's be honest if the Yankees had fifteen players test positive for covid nineteen and their season was halted for a week, would we still be playing baseball? How about if the dodgers or any other big market team had the same outbreak but since it's the marlins twenty, twenty season will go on. I was not aware of this. Blah Blah, Blah Blah quick comment. Yes. It's a TV show long as people still seem to be tuning in the TV show and they can fulfill their contract with the networks. They're gonNA keep playing, understand his point but this is already affecting the integrity of a sixty games scheduled. That's exactly what I was. Answering the whole integrity quest the marlins entire week of games has been postponed. They won't play again until August fourth at against the phillies and that's the best case scenario but that appears unlikely as the Miami. Mayor has announced that the Marlins should adhere to a fourteen day quarantine protocol that they have in the city. Oh which would push back even further. This has caused massive schedule and chaos in our massive chaos in the schedule. The Yankees who spent the past two days in Philadelphia never played a game they were supposed to play to on the road against the phillies and then travel home to New York for two more. Now, they will instead travel to buffalo by bus to play the Orioles who originally were supposed to be playing the MARLINS. Keeps going from there in Buffalo Okay Well, it's it's a rocky road. No it just seems to me like if one more team gets especially high profile team, like he said, where there's a lot of a ton of money on the line it falls apart. So quickly, I mean if the schedule that messed up that fast right Right. and it's not a big deal and and TV show and I still say fine I still say you might as well have tried even if it doesn't work out what's the downside to try if I if I got a star player and he gets a little hamstring poll and he's going to be out seven to ten days pretty common thing and I don't want him missing the Games. I just infect my team with Cova and we get a week off to recover and then once once everybody's healthy again hundred let's make up the Games everybody and this all infect my team with covert. How do you go about doing you spit in? Droves. You need some covert. I'll get you some. Dark Web oh as long as we're discussing this sporting life zero cases in the NBA so far though in the bubble in penetrated by last week. Yeah. Last week they had zero positive tests and the the regular season game start tomorrow for a couple teams. Most of them start on Friday, there have been a couple of NBA guys handful get the head, but they recovered quickly and they're fine they were isolated. They didn't join the team immediately they quarantined and then they joined later in the apparently the bubble thing is so far working. Meanwhile over in the National Football League one of the star players, the Patriots linebacker Dont`a hightower. Announced, he is opting out of the season. Safety Patrick Chung also announced plans to opt out because coronavirus concerns me at least six patriots who will not play they lead the league in that as well. Jack does he take care of his grandma at home or something because you're a young healthy man? The chance of you getting bad is so low well, they have a baby he and his fiancee has a baby of a new baby apparently in the baby almost certainly will be fine too but the the head connect conscience the brain pounding is going to get you before the Kobe. Heck I think twenty six players have opted out this season last from what I heard. When you hear that all pros like Dante hightower Patrick Chung and others each of whom sports several. Super Bowl rings are out. You're going to see that number grow a lot. San Francisco giants star MVP catcher buster Posey opted out he and his wife have a newt adopted twins I didn't know that. He said I'm not playing correct really I had no idea Sue. We'll have to see boy and what's your chance of getting it in baseball. Very Song on the Marlins a lot less than the NBA where you're like leaning against people in breathing on, it's not going to be your opponents. It's your clubhouse, your staff, the rest of the following basketball you could easily traded on baseball. It's it's your team baseball's biggest struggles that they aren't doing the bubble approach. They had the opportunity to do it in Arizona where the host although spring training because they have all the stadiums and they said, no they they didn't do it for whatever reason. But I think that's going to be their biggest hurdle. You said once big the Big Star start opting out it's you know and Grows from there I wonder if it's not other way around the people make tons of money and got more money than they can spend a lifetime. You think I'm not gonNA take the risk the so the other end, it's the non-stars that are GonNa say, Oh, can we play? We gotta play right the money or yeah yeah. I have no idea how this and. Neither do I. Neither does anyone. There are a Lotta, great players in all these sports though you haven't heard of them yet she you can take out a star nobody another star that other that. Takes out. We don't do sports talk show, but I'll tell you as a baseball fan that buster Posey staying home opened the door for a new kid and he's doing great. that. On the other hand old Mr. Posey has plenty of cash in the bank and I don't think he's terribly concerned. And to his credit, he's more worried about his wife and kids than win and baseball games the lady wouldn't let him play. He begged her he's earned his full catcher's gear at the front door. Please can I play? Louise she saying, no, he's trying to shake off. Pitcher shake off not catchers, Dang it he shaking her off. He's worth a mask I wear a mask on the field. Chosen Work Muster get back here take off your chain guards and sit down. Oh Don't squat sit. Hilarious. He's the catcher you see probably about out of Catcher Joe. And Getting A. The Armstrong and getty show. As. Of today I'd actually forgotten about this. which you how difficult it's going to be. As, of today at my house, we're a gluten free household. We're going to attempt to do it. Wow. Including you. Well so it's for my youngest in his health problems and it has been brought up by every single human being we've talked to therapists with no medical training whatsoever. On Up to psychiatrist who have medical training but not in this area on up to doctors who have medical training in this area and everybody else. Everybody have you tried gluten free? then. Never like saying, we really need to just you haven't tried it. But there's so many people. That are. Practicing members of the Church of Gluten. It just it's just it's so annoying. It is. So annoying. Yeah. You don't want to give into them and and and man cases I've thought you're the kind of person that you know gets into this whole gluten free thing and your doctor. And your this or that right And you know you've for whatever reason I. Don't know what I don't know what it is about the church gluten. I don't know why you gluten people just feel like. Your life would be so much better. If other people stop eating gluten I don't get that. But fine but it's a possibility. They could be a thing with my son with inflammation what that and whatnot, and and the things that we have been doing aren't working. and So you know got try anything and your cookies tastes like crap for awhile and have a weird textures worth trying from loans eliminated. Cookies anyway. So that's exactly that's the way but also thought luckily, my wife and I agreed on this the the the only way to really make this work and to make it a lot easier for him. Is that we all do it. It's not just works in their eating pizza. Enjoy gluten-free whatever yeah. So, we're GONNA do it as a whole whole family, but I had just I had just texted her I'll read my text. The fact that I forgot about it so quickly shows it's going to be difficult I send texts since my pizza was a fail the other day is there anything I could bring home for lunch bagels Kentucky Fried Chicken subway anything they all have gluten. All right. All Right Casey has gluten. Gluten I'm anything that's fried like the reading on it. Yeah. Oh, branding branding add in but right But a lot of stuff are Hershey's bars gluten free. Fruit loops are group gluten free. All stuff that no kid would ever want to eat. Yeah. Well. Why does and now my I've never had any gluten free like treats that weren't awful and I mean off. bar come the recipes via email on Monday but I've. Thank you for the liberal pretty good. Some of them might be, but I certainly had a lot terrible. I mean not just like this isn't as good. A regular cookie. You couldn't for five dollars I wouldn't eat the rest of this right I remember when we were going hardcore low-carbon. Several of us, my my wife, my sister and me and and we experimented with various Oh. This is an excellent substitute for of and there were a couple of things. I. Actually Spit Out. Oh. Yeah. Like I'm five years back. Grown man Chu. Chu Lookout phase. At the store with with with Henry, one time, and we are going to get a chocolate chip cookie I. Think Sam was in karate or something, and we're going to get the chocolate chip cookie. All they had was gluten free. Probably okay. It was. It was spit it out. Bad boy just thank. Buying why did you make this? They're doing. Something else nobody would like this flavor, right? To, a bakery that's pretty close by that has great stop gentlemanly top notch I wouldn't know that this was gluten free and it tastes just like a brown. That's what I was. GonNa say my wife said she's had gluten-free like brownies that were actually good. So but if you make the terrible kind surely you recognize that they're terrible don't you? Don't you a Brownie, the tastes nothing like a Brownie. Has No point yes. But if you're a member of the Church of no gluten in the way that ideology blinds intellect makes you believe insane things I think they convince themselves now this is. This is pretty good. But it just seems to me that if you're going to run an tastes like something completely different than what is the point or the texture is that of a loose phut. Didn't need that. Well but not for straight talk you wanted to Brownie you can't have a Brownie because a turns out you can't have a Brownie. But in this case with the brownies, they made sure it doesn't taste anything like a Brownie, right? So I don't need something called the Brownie in the shape of a Brownie I wanted something that tasted like a Brownie. Sure. So the. have. something. Have something else Joe is on to a point where I think they have deprived their tastebuds of taste buds of joy for so long that they don't even know what a real Brownie tastes. Ban To might be a good thing that happens with sweets and general people are taking a lot of sweets. You just get used to such a high level of sweet in your life. You need a lot more of it and you know you'd better off without proper. This gluten free pizza has the texture of Mucus and tastes like Tar. Cauliflower I, is the new frontier in gluten. I tried that for the low carb Ooh now that learn cross. that. That wasn't the worst one. Oh, the worst thing was fo- `tatoes Oh my it was like ground up cauliflower like banning I spit out. Oh, it's terrible but that's another example to me of if it's not to be anything like potatoes, there's not a need for something called potato shaped like a right. Why don't we have something else? Right. It's like you're checking a box like you're in a communist society where. The Commissar told you have to have potatoes? So instead, you have something horrifying, call it potatoes. Why why? Why anyways, we're going to try to. Get works out. You know we were talking about that. He's really dreading it. His Diet is not great with probably doesn't help anything that the stuff that he wanted to meet to news really dreading it but we're talking about what if this worked? What if no more needles? No more all this medicine we take every day all this stuff and you can go to school and everything just because we quit eating gluten was give it a try now. Eliminated at least if we do it then for the rest of my life when people say heavy tried. Yes. Shot Up. Walk. A. Texture of Mucus. Here's your host for final thoughts Joe, Getty. So I almost leapt to the left to the end my apology. So let's get a final thought from everybody on the crew. It's Michelangelo pressing the Buttons Michael Yet whether it's sugar free or gluten free.

HR 3: It's been a while!

"We'll. That is number one, seed. Whoop. Whoop L Z the Lakers for the. Number one seed in the western conference, which is awesome. Which means you played great all season long, which means that you're rolling into the playoffs in this year, you don't get anything because there is. Because there is no horror fans to play in Toronto, it is in Orlando, which by the way is working fantastic. We take a moment to talk about that. But the number one seed usually comes along with a lot of cool stuff in this particular case could just doesn't. Man We got no home court advantage. T shirts. We ain't got no town house free guide. No. Trivial Guy Russians. What about the guy? That pipes in the sound doesn't need do it in your favor? Okay. So you get the, you get the. Is. US economist and putting up your. Good, luck. Turn Roger Mike. I'm not doing this with you. Taking ridiculous. Also. Play whoop there it is supposed interpret s for lakes. And, hate the I. I don't Know How many basketball games you guys have been too. But I've been to a ton. I want to say maybe close to a thousand basketball games in my life, NBA gains and nothing drives me crazier than when it keeps us. No Damn. Jennifer Jackson drums like Gimme a beat give me. Oh God. It's just like seriously. We're still doing that drop. Him beat dropped. Are we still doing that all these years later? It would be different if they actually played the beat, they just played an opening apart and then just stops it and you. Think. That's regular. That's a regular one two. So we're not GONNA get any of those. So he tried to tell me that they are pipe Indosat drops for us in the bundle. So you're more authentic. There is no homecourt advantage to be there just as nobody's in any better position or any worse I, we'll say this before we get to the Lakers for a second. The Games in the bubble, they've done a really good job with them as far as visually on TV. That virtual fantasy they have back there is is weird, but it's better than an empty building. The fact that they have the players spread out over the first couple of rows of seats is weird, but it works the broadcasts really clean. They're doing the best job that anybody could ask. Ask for the the the bubble that the NBA. Pretend. Really, the full that the s is thrown together as well. It works man I, it's not perfect. It's not the same thing as having guys in their regular buildings. But I'm under no worries that this thing is going to come to a screeching halt because they can't get their act together the way with baseball in the NFL. than. I I don't know what they're doing in those other leaves. Travis are really don't. I don't I don't understand. How you can look at what the NBA is doing and how put it off, and the seriousness is taken everything, and then you come out and you got the Saint Louis Cardinals in the Florida marlins. Was added in there and I don't have a lot of faith that football is going to be even better. I just don't. Like. It because they're like going to screw you out you like is that kid in class that at the end when the bell rings and the teacher goes anymore questions, he's the one that raises his hand his. Homework. Exactly. Like what he's doing because he mine's them and their own ineptitude. They should. If it does, they need to get over themselves and start copying what he his league been doing because it works last night Lakers get a nice win against Utah does not and. You, know they end up winning the game by eight points. It really wasn't that close. The Lakers had that game comfortably enhanced through throughout most of the fourth quarter Anthony. Davis was absolutely fantastic again and heading into the playoffs Elsie having a d. playing at this level. We know what Lebron's going to give us. But having ad at this level having a B to Lebron's a, that's nearly a itself. I can't wait for this thing. Get started. There's some questions to be sure but if eighty Lebron, play like this, bring on anybody in the Lakers have as good a shot as in had a really long time. Listen. We know eighty can do. To a team in a in a series because he destroyed destroy the calling trailblazers either. We know when Lebron's anes can do to a franchise. He's ended franchises teams. He's broken the mob. He's done everything. He can possibly do it other franchises. What we don't know what they're going to do together, and this is exciting man. This is exciting because as talented, his ad has been. He's been a disappointment. He's been a disappointment because his he hasn't been able to translate is individuals success and to team success. And when you dress one overall, you're expecting them to do just that. When your drafty in the second. And a guy has averaged fifteen point game for his career or nine different teams then yeah. You Focus in on his one success because he's he beat the arbs. Number one seed. You're not beat the odds just by simply having a twenty ten season. Know your you need to do more, and this is opportunity to team with the guy who's done the most of anyone else in his era, and we're going to get to see what they get to do together and. I'm yeah. Yeah. What they're doing together and last night was a great example of it. You could from the opening tip throughout the entire game watching these guys. But the Lakers are trying to get Anthony Davis going there there from the opening tip throughout the entire game. It was. Let's look for a d. and see what he can because we know like you said a minute ago, lebrons going to do with the broncos. There's no worry about Lebron. Just go into the tank and being anthony. Anthony Kennedy. He's still the best player in the League. If you. You don't believe me, you're not watching. You know what I mean. If you WANNA talk about other, there are other great players and Lebron James Player League. He just is and has been for a long time. He just says everything, but you can tell the Lakers, their number one priority in that game last night was let's getting. So I think he had seven shots like the first five minutes of the game. Yeah, I, mean. It was not ensure the team that has Lebron. Well, as because he's on a team that has the brand that he got those shots because the bronze placing in his career where he's okay with that. He's okay. With that. There are certain dues and you know this travis as well as anyone. There are some dudes who talk a whole lot about success and team success when things get real tight, it's about them. It's about their success. There are guys and also sports team sports. That are all about team. As low as did a feature guy on that team, and as soon as someone else emerges challenges or become coca point, there's jealousy the obviously the best example of this is what happened in New York with the with men's sanity and Jeremy Lay, and what happened when you know the other players, the other bona fide stars got healthy, and we're able to play again all of a sudden now jealousies toward that whole thing apart. They were Roland. FREAKING rolling and jealousy toward apart. So when you're looking at a Lebron James you looking at someone who's mature enough to say, I'm a made man and a going forty and ten is not gonNA. Make me less of a made man. In fact, I'd meet a D.. To go off forty ten in this game, and I'm going to do everything in power to make sure he goes off of forty this game and I'm going to be less for him to be more because their lives everyone. Remarkable amount of maturation and confidence in oneself. No question. No question about it, and he he is all that. What you just described is just another brick in the wall as to why he is the best player in the game, there's also a piece of this to that. You're talking about the guys are all about team until it's about somebody else on the team and then they get uncomfortable. There's another. There's another category of guys that Lebron does not fall into it, and that is on the man. I'm the man this needs to run through me. This needs to run through me right up until it gets down to the very last moment that it's I don't need this. You take it. You you take. Know. I I'm making this Manina Look Lebron is not on the comfortable sharing and having another great player like Anthony Davis on his team and not being threatened by Anthony. Davis is greatness. He understands that there's there's room for more than one great player on a we. I've no matter how great is it doesn't make me less great. But what he's also comfortable with this, I. Understand this thing goes to hell. It will be my fault whether it is or not that. I'm the one that's. That's GonNa get responsibility I'm comfortable wearing it. I'm comfortable taking it comfortable taking that last shot comfortable answering the questions after the game. I'm comfortable wearing the mantle of why didn't you get it done? Not all great players are comparable with that. I mean there, there are a lot of examples of guys and I'm not trying to throw shade Anthony Davis here. But this is the part we don't know about him like you just laid out. They had that great success against. PORTLAND. One year. Other than that. You're looking at him saying, okay. You undoubtedly, you're one of the five or six or eight best players leave. Nobody's saying Anthony Davis isn't that, but finding your team's never win, Bro. and. We just don't know how comfortable he is that quite frankly, he doesn't have to be that guy here. All he has to be is a great player. He doesn't have to carry the water of all of those other things because lebrons in the room and the bronze war that comfortable carrying the water that comes with being that guy and still letting Anthony Davis. Be The guy goes for forty, two and twelve. The way did last night because Lebron knows I'm still. and. They're gonNA say there are definitely guys situation. Washington were very talented backorder, John? Wall. And grabby bill both guys. Multi time. All Stars. Incredibly. Athletic, really, really good players. Can't get each other's way because of jealousies. You know, and it's like, I, know that sounds is you know we're such homers for Lebron that every single thing he does is great and that's not true. It's not true. I've criticized abroad many times over the course of his career for different things that I thought were legitimate reasons to criticize them for legitimate reasons. But when he does something right I'm GonNa, come with that same energy, the way that he has handled. AD and welcome into the fold and doing something that. Did Not happen with Kobe Dwight Howard, which is making your successor feel as if he truly is an equal partner in this. That's not easy to do. That's not easy to do when you're just a regular time all-star. Let alone own an all time. Great, but Kareem did it. Cream did with magic and we're watching now we're watching the brand do with Ad. Hey, young fella, go out there. Go Give Fair because last time you didn't get bad and we lost and we can't have that it's more important to me that the team wins. Then it looks like I'm the superstar on the team. You know. I'm. Glad. You said it like that because I think Lebron. I, don't. He's the only guy like this because he's not, but he I think he's false falls into a pretty small category of you guys say this all the time. I think very few people need it. I just want to win I. Don't care if the reason we win I'm I hope I am I, hope that I want to win everything that comes after that is secondary I. think There's a Lotta guys that would rather be the man than win. They'd rather go through them. Means that I have a bad night and I lose. I'm okay with that because at least. Least I. got a chance to have this thing on my shoulders. Lebron wants to win. Look Lebron wants to win whether it's because of him whether it's because, of Anthony, Davis because of Alex Caruso or quit cooker, whoever it might be on any given night lebrons walking off the court comfortable. If they won because that's what he's therefore because he knows he's GonNa get sadly. All. Right. The PAC twelve players want an answer. They still haven't got one plus another college football coach saying stuff that will really no one should say that's coming up next on the morning show on set at ten ESPN, it's official traff. Yeah. It is of fish oil. The polls are in my friend. You have defeated L Z. he goes down for a second time in. The fears are happy. The people have spoken. You have one V. Best Animated Films List with Toy Story, the incredible 's team America world police and cocoa. Those, he tried to get cute with his last picking, it did not work. Out Your time this. Yeah. This is not your time. Go ahead. Travis. What do you say to the people that? I I'll I'll. I'll say the truth and I think L Z, you know like you mentioned earlier. Excuse me go on in the afternoons with with George here, coming up in a couple of weeks, and it feels like he's getting out at the right time. He's GonNa. He's dropped a couple in a row. Andy, got him last week towards the end of the week and I come out of the week strong with my first win in a while so I. I feel like the getting good right now, we may have to retire it of before. We do another one so I can leave. In rap battles and leave on a leave on Haida mistake draft and that dynasty. I know what Tom Brady feels like. Now, you know you had your years of dominance. All and second guess people were happy to see you. Lose and they talk about Oh. Well, you know you've lost in a super bowl. Yeah. But I keep. I keep, getting. So. I understand travis that you know as a Tennessee titans, you're a break cited that you have to. Pay Characterization. Sites like that. You know it's like. Clearly I'm the Patriots in this situation and people are trying to come kind of gates. To Rogers, creating gates to trying to derail me. and. I'm just I'm happy for you. If that's the way you want to win, not actually the animated films now. I don't complain about it. I'm just GONNA. I'm GONNA roll with it. I'M GONNA. Animation means bringing life to inanimate objects and that's what the puppets in team America where so I feel entirely comfortable with that Kyle, Kuzma, should feel less comfortable for the tweet that he sent out yesterday about this. Real. Laker fans remember the losing seasons. Here you go. Number, one coups I. Love You. I think your important part about what they're about to do. I think you're citing a like your swag you need to stop. Because you have been on losing laker teams doesn't mean that Real Laker fans only know losing real laker fans. No. For decades. This has been about nothing other than hanging in the in the banners and going to that seventeenth eighteenth title. This number one seed in the western. Conference, is nice. But that's not what we're here for. We're here for the Confetti at the end of in the middle of October. That's why we're here. That that is exactly why we're here and I'm pretty sure you know when he sent a tweet, he was caught up in the hype and the emotion of having his first winning season as a pro. have be out of that grade class of draft picks being the one that stuck around. You, know Brennan has gone. Ball. Gone God Clarkston God Ninety Russell. You're gone Russell God like so many players that he either were drafted before him or after him he's playing with, they're all gone. And he's here. And he the Tina drafty him. So I know he feels certain amount of tried and that's fantastic. You that pride. But I, mean real fans. They, remember losing seasons. Far Far less than you remember the win seasons because the winning and happens way off he. Is Not the the franchise what he experienced with Inaba digits franchise in Los Angeles Yeah his his run in La is the only bad run. This team have for the better part of forty years. So the thirty years is the the part that most remember liquors last night is sponsored by wingstop freshly made just for you wings sauce and toss and eleven mouth-watering flavors. Flavors get yours delivered to your door at wingstop dot com wingstop were flavor gets its wings z. you asked me something during the break here Why people think it's okay to use the N. word and I, would say many of us do not many of us know that that's not a word that we want to use that we do use. Gary Patterson. The head coach at Tcu apparently is not one of those guys. He used the word at practice recently on Sunday. When he was repeating the word that one of his players are using, wanted his players to stop using the word, but he repeated it and used it in front of his players. Numbers. Players understandably were turned off by that and prompted a number of to boycott yesterday's practice I. Just don't understand why this is something that keeps coming up to your point. Why do certain people think that this is okay to say because it's not repeating a song lyric repeating quoting someone else another coach using it in this context of that context. Enough man. Listen man, it's. First of all. A. Lot of people use that word a lot of different contexts. Latinos use it, blacks, use it obviously whites. Blah Blah Blah. Context is everything. Right? Context is everything. So, as not, just the use of the word is the context in which to where it is being used as well, and that's the reason why it's so problematic to me that you have these football coaches. These football coaches whether assistant coach and listen when the head coach here to e, you would see stands for Christian. When you have that much power and control over the future of a young black and brown body. And they hear you using that word. Do you have any idea what emotional state you are putting these young people in. You have any idea what ripple through your body when you see the head coach who recruited you? The coach, who's GonNa decide if you play. The coaches very much can show them your scholarship and academics and making sure that you graduate. If that's your plan or help prepare you for NFL the person that you selected at a high school to be your misdemeanor. To be your sense, ADP your guiding force drops the word in practice. And he's sitting there and all his glory, all the power that you surrender to him. In this moment, he's comfortable enough to jump the N. Word in that environment. Sure. Any idea what that does young man. Simply put Z. No, I don't I, I try to intellectualize it, but I don't think I could ever feel it the way the player would feel at that moment and what that player would you know all the emotions that come along with it? Here's what here's what I do now. I, don't like reading the word. It makes me tighten up when I read it. It makes me tighten up when I when I see it in a story about something like this, and this is the disconnected I have because. If I feel like that when I read it or when I feel like that when I hear it be said. In the world. I don't know how a coach, Gary. Patterson, in this case or one of the assistants at. Clemson that we talked about earlier or anywhere else. How it just comes out of your mouth in the moment, how you just say it because. It carries with it. So we all know what a carries with it. To, just say what you said. The N. Word in a meeting room and just say it like that just tells me something about your own assume, Travis. Your for my best. But I think Travis drop and what? What are you saying is simply This. Comfort of saying that word in any context when you're not a person of color raises an eyebrow. Yes. Trevor Back. Yeah. Yeah. No, that's exactly right that to to just say to Clare in what what it was. He redneck syndicate. Something to practice the player said for what I didn't do anything which Patterson said, you've been saying the word in the meeting rope. Okay. But he used the act to. Say Like that tells me. You're comfortable with that word. You're comfortable saying that word to just about anybody in any context. If it's coming out like that, because there are other ways to say that without saying the word. That's the part that makes me go are accurate. Gary Patterson. What are you really about? Yeah And not to to nitpick on on, but you're absolutely correct that. Means, it's like. If are certain things that aren't in my vocabulary. Slurs will. Be. Number One Year only at my mother that just as an that's just not what I am about right, and so if that were to her, there will be a visceral response internally that probably would be ever saying anything close to that. The fact that you didn't have a pause. The fact that you just went right along and just said, it just makes me wonder. Is it. Soon, the first time you've said that word. Hard to believe because our I'm thinking. I'm thinking. Yeah. I mean that's a really. That's a tough sell to because that's not the had been no I. Don't believe I. Don't believe that's even possible, but it's the first time. If you're going to drop it for your team in a context that seems almost impossible to believe dodgers dropped one in San Diego. Last night, they have the second most win baseball. But is there a reason to be concerned? That's next on the morning show on seven, ten ESPN drivers. Yes. Travis. My boy. On this day back in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four. Purple Rame began his twenty two consecutive week run on twenty four consecutive week run on top of the charts. Twenty four straight weeks of Purple Rain. On this date Canadian four, but here's the quiz for you. Are you ready? The. Chances. Okay. No, no, no, no is saying and nineteen, eighty four. There was a record low five number, one albums for the entire year who a record low five number. One albums in nineteen eighty, four, I. Just told you that Purple Rain was number one from August until December ninth. Can't you tell us or can you miss? Any of the other four albums that were number, one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four. Okay. I wanted I am terrible at the time. Is Thriller One of them. Thriller is one throw. It was number one from January seventh until April fourteenth. Okay. So. Thriller was the first album by the way, just a little side note through it was the first album to sell the most copies and two years. So this is actually it actually was released in eighty three and it had the most weeks and sold the most copies made three came back in eighty four, and so the most copies. Team. He turns out. He kind of had a feel for that kind of stuff. He's pretty good at it he. Knew. He had a talent as they say. I think this might be a little bit later, but I'm GONNA, throw it out. There was born in the USA. Born in the USA from July seventh until July. Twenty eight. ooh Good. Come on to our two more. So this I don't think I've literally going back in nineteen, eighty four, I was in the seventh grade and I'm trying to think of the records that I had in my house at that point, and that's why I know thriller and that's why I know Brisk Breezy 'cause. I. Add those records at about that time. This is gonNA. You'RE GONNA. Laugh. Is it billy idol? Is that one of them? That is not one of them. that. You know you're close with Madonna Madonna good. No. Madonna nobody. Donna. I'm. Madonna. News the soundtrack to. was number. Twenty until June twenty third. Here's his my favorite little little little nugget here. So Purple Rain Born, USA footloose and thriller, which you've got spent multiple weeks at number one. But the fifth pick spent one week at number one, who in nineteen, eighty, four. And I'll give you hit. Of. Not. Cool. He's About? No, he's not cool. There was nothing really cool about him. He didn't dance the videos work that remarkable or memorable, but they were just good eighty songs and he he doesn't even have that great of a voice. It's a good voice, but it's not a great voice. He's not like freaking. David Lee Roth somebody like that. Is it rock as it pop give me A. Is Pop rock. Okay. So someone even dare say yacht rock. Oh Michael Bolton. One less. I'll give you one last hit. Okay. The name of the album. Is. The topic that we talk about. Most. On your off. On the air. Name the. Yeah if it was off the out if his up the air force it is. News. The Apple Sports one week at number. One. Dumb That is. I'm with you. Yeah. Sports. I deserve I at least. Taza. Great for getting two of the four that were still available to me. That's usually fifty percent is S. but for the starting point for me music I, want a passing grade. No? No, no. No. I'm giving you A. Matter is well. Nobody. Remembers Sports. Anyway. It was a weird thing to happen. They did was a member. It wasn't. Purple Rain Thriller Wasn't blowing USA does iconic albums, sports snow camp for one week and through off everybody. But it's okay. Is that like one rug and the song from back in time for back to the future? It's. Business. Is the heart of rock and roll. I wanted to work hard, and so if this is it which I actually did light and. Thin Line. It's not bad. They had to run. It was worth it. You. He had a run. You WanNa hear something real real. Stupid. That's also simultaneously true. Tonight's tonight's dodger game marks, St Twenty percent point of the season, and therefore it a huge game because they're in a tie for second place with the Eagle padres. Tonight's game is the twenty percent mark there nearly a quarter done with the season and it's the twelfth game of the year. That's dumb. True. That is raise. It was really crazy. Is that you said we're in a tie for second place. In the first place, the Colorado rockies also had seven wins, three losses, and we thought that some weird stuff could happen and so far. So good. You know we lose two in a row to the giants were caught second place with a with the padres of all teams. You know we don't do well of Dustin may doesn't hold it together. We could end up at third place at twenty at the twenty percent mark and now. The rest of the eighty percent of the games and try and get back white. So it's weird man. This is good. As we thought, it would be. This is exactly the situation that people that. Understand. Just the compression of this whole thing we're worried about. The dodgers are GonNa, make the playoffs just because they're a really good team and their plant. Well, they're seven and four in any normal circumstances. That's a really good start to a season. But because the rockies are seven into because the padres are also seven and four, and because you look at the cubs who ate into, you look at the braves who were seventeen for. These games take on such incredible added significance because there is no time to catch up the padres don't need to sustain their six, thirty, six winning percentage over six months. They just need to sustain it over eight weeks and they can. They're good enough to be that team for eight weeks, which means the dodgers needed to be a little bit better, which means the rockies need to come back to the pack a little bit. I believe both of those things will happen, but when you have such a small sample these. These games take on added significance that the twelfth game of the season, which is tonight, which is the twenty percent mark going into this thing with with Dustin man amount. This is a big game if they lose their seven and five normally like whatever we've got five and a half months to go, you lose your seven and five tonight and all of a sudden. It's hey, we have to win one of these games against the padres or who the hell knows. What's going to happen. It's just a weird bizarre season. Oh. So Weird. So. Weird is so bizarre, but you know it's I want to say is baseball, but it's not because they not this year. Is just interest is deal about that. That's new model. It just is deal. It's it's a weird deal, twenty percent. As of tonight, we'll talk about all of this was ESPN, ob insider, Doug Glanville. He's going to join us next on the morning show on seven ten ESPN. Alright. So tonight marks the twenty percent of the shortened mlb season for the dodgers. Tonight, they'll be playing their twelve game of the year tonight against the padres. Join US right out talk about all things in LB is UCS insider Doug Glanville joining us on the morning, show the morning, hey, Ben. I'm doing great. Good morning on. Morning Good, morning good morning, so we're near the twenty percent mark in terms of games played in this short season. Once their biggest surprise you know outside of the Marlins like give a damn about the coronavirus and what is your biggest disappointment despite the? Giving disciplined. Yeah outside the virus or inside the well, there's I think it's expected or was expected that this is going to be disrupted season and you know I'm hopeful that they can continue to figure out a way to play as long as they ratchet up to safety and continue to be. Vigilant, and you know anytime you have these outbreaks. He saw Derek jeter talk about the Marlins and sort of in defense of what they were doing. But also recognizing that following these protocols is not been to a tea. It's been difficult or players are just very relaxed about it. And you know whether watching a game and you see someone high five is I categorize what he's talking about whether it's there other things about going out to dinner and so on. So they're all in it together and I think the. The surprise is still these question marks about the importance of this to the letter is as tightly as you can. It's difficult and I think the fact that you're moving forward where you have, for example, the National League of the Marlins we've spoken a lot about. Their to in one in first place they. Play. So, you think about say there's different stretches of interruption and team finished the season and play sixty games and another team plays. You know forty three or something like that. How are we going to take that? You're still going to go into the strange postseason so. But that's the part that starts to make it question the bigger picture even though I understand safety is is the center of this. It's just you have to have a competitive landscape. That kind of imbalances tough to bounce off. deglanville joining us here on the morning. Show Doug. Does it feel like a major league baseball season. As you watch this watch games all it's exciting. Dodger fans. I'm enjoying the start of the season and seeing the way that they're play. But you kind of look at some of these games, some of them feel like the important major league games and some of them feel like some weird spring train version. What does it feel like to you? That that. Sums it up. Really. Well, I mean, I was watching the Phillies Yankees and I see Di Gregorio hitting with a mask. There's no fans and you're like, where are we like what? You. Are Trying to adopt to this, and it's also changing in your face and and so it has such a different feel to it. Then even though I'm watching baseball, you have this tenth inning. Extra inning runner is the base angel after. That guy disappears. So you have the scenes will appear in and it strains and I. I'm my tradition just goes off in my head and says, how did he even get there? Right? How do they even get there? You know you can't see your scoring a strange error. So I understand that baseball has to innovate and I appreciate that they're trying to figure out how to make sense of this seven inning doubleheaders and because they're trying to play and they're trying to do it safely. And we have to I think L Z was saying you know it. It just is you know like you have to deal with it and you're trying to figure out this is baseball and in a new format. And enroll with it, and the players are trying and I know that we got Andrew mccutchen, our podcast yesterday, and he's saying Yeah I'm facing Garrett Cole today and I've sat out for basically eight I've missed eight games How do you do? Like you said deal and it's really tough. It's so weird to try to find any sort of ground to stand on in terms of. The season and what does that mean in a players legacy, but for this franchise dodgers? was so much talent even in a sixty games season. The expectations are great. So I need you to talk me off the cliff because we lost sooner road giants. Clearly If. Clearly. Losing to bat teams like sad. Still a coincidence or just it's baseball if it happens this season or is it inexcusable because it a few games that we have? Yeah, well. I think earlier, we were talking a few weeks ago about matchups, right? The idea that. Anything can happen outside of okay. Pandemic baseball, but it's also the match. You can distill the game strategically to like me against you in this situation in this inning, and if you don't match up well against the team could be the giants. You know that that can be very difficult to overcome because they're going to get a strategy for that team. You don't have this huge season and this large sample size. Anymore, you have a small sample size in that window. You might find it advantage and it takes time to adjust to them and you look up and you lost eight out of ten. You know, and that's all you have against these teams in your division and and it also may come at a time where you're the Yankees or the phillies or whatever, and you ran into an outbreak or something, and you sat for three games. That's a whole different album about how you're actually going to be bringing your best game. So what I like about the dodgers will all is believe they're going to be a serious contender, is that they have a lot of depth. And if if that depth doesn't jeopardised by an outbreak, then it's just an injury question. They still are going to be a formidable force and so yeah. Baseball is a game where you do lose the teams, they're supposed to beat fill out and. I, it's more about how you punch back from that and the adjustments. I've no question. Dave Roberts, and company are highly motivated. Kershaw was highly encouraging right for dodgers sand. So. There's a lot to be happy about it with that team. Doug. Let me let me stick with the dodgers here. Kind of sort of for a second Jose altuve as fat in one, Fifty, eight, George. Springer. In one, eighty, two, Alex Bregman Bat to eleven. Is it justice? The beginning of the season in numbers are weird for can as a dodger fan? My looking at this, going to go on oral hershiser, said. Guessing is different than knowing these guys struggling because they don't know what's going on. Yeah that was hard core to oral called me like a couple weeks. We've been playing phone tag to catch up on this Pitching coach and taxes. Yeah. So luck the there are questions about the Astros and you saw I mean look. Kelly. Came after him and I get it. There's a lot of frustration and you certainly can't fight in a pandemic. That's a disaster. But at the same time, you know that didn't just go away and there's a couple of things that I think about what the Astros for one players know and they spoke out in an unprecedented way about this. They know that the players had immunity and that's why I? Didn't have any punishment now, the public opinion punishment was there. But that's gone away in a different way. Because if you know, make these choices, have this ruling come down. And then you have to go through the twenty twenty normal season. You're going to deal with this sort of walk of shame for the entire season, and in some ways, players see that you know you're come up. Okay. You know what you did this you got off, but you know you gotta go through a whole season where people are doing you and you going to deal with that, and that's going to challenge you to find a way to still perform. I, think to some degree because you don't have fans. Fans fans are part of the baseball justice system are and they they may. They May. But they're going to be part of that, and that's not there. It's just and and the dodgers. I'm sure feel like wait a minute. They're they're going to go to the radar here after all this stuff and we're not talking about it because obviously, we have more serious things to talk about that that wasn't gonna fly and and that did not surprise me at all I. I know you can't charge the mound you. Obviously in this scenario. But so you know whether they are clearly, they had to make some adjustments about what they're using technologically. But these are these are talented players I. mean they're all talented, very talented players I think much more. It's a slow start and because as you mentioned twenty percent, that's a big deal. You know you have to slow start for forty percent of the season. You may be going home and it doesn't matter how talented you are. Rob Manfred. I don't admire his job at all right now, he's trying to manage a lot. But at the same time, I can't help but feel he mishandled the punishment Houston Astros and he tried to protect the Houston. As show by over punishing Kelly who actually never hit anyone either with this or the baseball. Am I being a homer here was? Rob Manfred doing very poor job. Should be his last commissioner. Well. The thing about Kelly. This is kind of how always seen pitcher's throwing it. And I kind of have to put it in two buckets because on one bucket, it's just sort of the general idea retaliating against the Astros. Right? This sort of that's one. But the other bucket, there is a safety component and and like I played with these guys and I know pitchers have a lot of confidence. And they're like, Oh, I didn't WANNA I didn't really WANNA. Hit Him I. WanNa hit him in the leg but in the end especially Kelly's command You throw somewhere near someone. You don't know where they're going to go to get out of the way and you may just hit them. You made out of meant to, but when you throw a ninety seven in vicinity. That's still problematic. And, I, think that it's important to be to be severe on outside of whole retaliation Astros. Thing I don't think. Manfred to protect the astros from the standpoint of. The justifiable and safe response to what people are going to feel about this for quite some time, right? That's and players are known to do this retype retaliation, but he also has to respond to what we're facing you. You just can't have situations escalate to a point where people are charging the mound and getting on the field because it's a pandemic. It's we've already seen these two outbreaks. You know that this is a problem. So there's a lot of layers. Layers to it, and I think he was in a very difficult position, and maybe you can make more of a statement about the Astros and why players are still going to be upset and maybe try to continue to engage and rethink. I, know they had to get immunity to get information and and I know they had a very tough time and the court of public opinion. But players are still not satisfied and they're the probably up to continue that conversation. Doug, landfills, and ESPN. Insider course of Major League, veteran himself. Doug, always a pleasure to talk with you. Thanks so much. Absolutely. Thank. You. Got It. I want to come back I, want to talk about the Lakers getting that number, see for the first time in ten years and want to continue that conversation about the Astros and some of the numbers that these guys are putting up. That's all coming up next on the morning show on seven ten years.

Marlins Offseason Special 2019-20 Edition with Ethan Budowsky (Fish Stripes/Earning Your Stripes Podcast)

"Even without the straps joins us to talk about this exciting Marlins rebuil- we've Kinda talk about everything from every single trade in the outfield to pretty much every single trade that's been made so far We kind of go over everything as far as this team this position. We're going to break it down position by position for you just like always in hope you enjoy welcome to painting corners your weekly broadcast or all things baseball now. Now here are your host Austin Hartsfield and Dave Witkowski all right so oh time for the Marlins off-season Preview Ethan marlins finished fifty seven and one hundred and five. They finished with the third overall. Pick back to back in last place finishes in the National League. What are your what? Were your thoughts on this season. As a whole I thought overall a good year for the Marlins it a good year too two they put a really really nice draft glass together that I'm sure we'll get to at some point here and I think that was the most positive sign I thought the trade deadline was a huge huge win for them bringing in some big additions to their system. Like Jesus Sanchez and Jazz. Chisholm I thought they did a really great job with some of the moves they made and there are some positive developments on the field was nice. To see is on his way up to the majors he had an absolutely massive season. Down in triple A.. It was nice to see him. Get some Reps. Even though he struggled a bit at the end of the year he came up just after the trade deadline really some exciting moments with him but overall growth year for the franchise just taking another step forward after obviously the big tear down that came before the twenty eighteen eighteen season. So I just thought it was a good step in the right direction. You know you're not gonNA take much from the day to day results that the marlins are putting out there because this team name isn't on the roster the way it was constructed isn't the way it's going to be constructed in the future but I think overall there is a lot of good positive growth. Out of this franchise this past season. You know mattingly gets his extension and I think it kind of shocked everybody. It felt like it felt like it shocked. Everybody know what was kind of the reaction from the fan base. And you know what does this mean. For the direction of franchise interest. I definitely thought it was a surprise. I kinda thought that Donnie was just a sitting duck. And you know I'm not GonNa say that I was the proponent of him coming back I thought it would be better to move in another direction at manager position. One guy that I really wanted was Beltran Beltran. When the mets got him I tweeted out that I would have really loved to have seen the marlins go after him had he had? We decided to go in a different direction from mattingly. But I think at some point you got to have some stability in this organization you gotTa have something carryover. They kind of did that when they held onto Mike Hill who's the GM they held onto him from the Loria era and we didn't expect anybody from that area to stick around but I just think that jeeter and and the front office or kind of on the same page with mattingly like he's started to go kind of more towards this metric based way of thinking that is just taking obviously taking the League League by storm now. I I think it's a it's a good move for stability. It wouldn't have been my personal baseball choice. But I I kind of see where the organization was coming from in terms of just trying to keep the same hell of voice at the helm and I think he really is excited about the project. That's going on in Miami and I think think you can tell he's really buying into it with the way that he got really excited about some of the young guys you could see him paying attention to what was going on at the lower levels which you don't often seattle managers really at least for my perspective so I thought that was really exciting and I think overall it's a good move to bring manningly back all right so jumping into the positions wins. Let's start at catcher and you really can't go any start anywhere else other than let's touch on. Jt Royal Muto traded the best catcher in baseball. He wasn't open to a contract extension attention before we get into the contents of the deal. This deal had to be done no matter what right absolutely no this was the one deal besides maybe Yelich that had to get done He just had too much value. With how much control he had left and how good of a player he is how hard it is to find that talented of an offensive catcher. that deal. Oh had to be had to get done for sure. Yeah I totally agree so jumping into the deal itself and the contents. What were your thoughts on the return for Real Moto? Well to be honest with you I had just seen six stow. Sanchez's name out there on twitter. I didn't know a ton about him and then when he jumped into the system on I mean I absolutely fell in love with the guy I mean. He's just we'll talk about him later but he's just probably I mean he's the number one prospect in the system He's the most exciting pitching prospect that we've had since the late Great Jose Fernandez. I mean that's you know that's a bold statement but it's not really hard back up This guy's fantastic absolutely electric. He lit up Jacksonville. This year. it seemed like every night That he was out on the mound he was just a a dominating and and then I really like an he so he's just really exciting but I really liked the acquisition because there's not really a lot of risk involved in in it I would say he's a pretty good offense catcher. He's got a drop the strikeouts lot. strikeout numbers are really high but I thought he had a nice year and I was pretty impressed by his hitting ability this year and I think he's a nice piece moving forward. I mean right now. There's not a whole lot at catcher. So you gotta a hang on to Al far hope that he pans out and then we'll start to nice little back end of the top thirty piece. Nice lefty arm adds some good starts. Had some really bad starts. He went like deep with no hitters. A couple of times this year. So it's a nice piece. I thought overall the trade was a huge roaring success for the Marlins Al Foro I feel as a guy that will be around for a while and six though is the future of the franchise so I think they did a pretty good job. All things considered so many of the guys that we talk to with the podcast. I think pretty much everyone that we talked to was acquired in one of the deals that we made in the last two years. So there has been there's so many new faces in this organization and and those are two of the most exciting ones without a doubt especially six to ours so jumping back advocate after catch catcher position so obviously the offensive production. OJT was missed and Utah are a little bit. What does the farm look like behind him? Banfield down there struggling. Yeah he's pretty young so so what's the outlook at catch your Below Alfonzo not. There's not there's not a big one at all I mean Banfield is is really right now. What the MARLINS are banking on? He's the only catching prospect in the top thirty and he's the only one on really of note down there Hit a really tough year at the plate I mean it. There's no other way to put it. He really struggled at the plate but his defense is this absolutely electric from all counseling reports. I mean the kid has a Canon for an arm. He was thrown out. baserunners seemed like left and right every time we had a show. It felt like we were talking about him. Thrown out three or four guys so he he has all the makings of an elite defensive catcher. The only problem is you know. Can he ever put it together. Gather with Bat. I mean he hit one nine nine five sixty two. Yeah five sixty two S I mean. They had a really really tough year at the plate. And you know you're never gonNA replace that kind of offensive production out of JT. Real Mutoko behind the plate. He's the best offensive catcher in the league. I would say So that's never going to happen overnight but I mean you gotta get a little bit of something out of him so He in yeah. That's like I said that's really all there is down there I mean there are a couple of guys that were out of position. Playing catcher like Nick Ready. Who who had a really nice year he was one of the mid round draft picks out of one of the service academies but I mean yeah other than that and he was playing a lot of third and I so behind besides how far like it's Banfield in and and whatever else so the marlins really have to hope for a quick turnaround from Enfield in an increase in his development next year or else they're going to have to do some soul searching for at the catcher position for sure? So who makes more starts at first base next year Austin Dean Garrett Eric Cooper Lou Garrick Cooper Coop had a really fun year. He really kind of caught the heart like heart strings of the Marlin of Marlins it's fans everywhere He they really love him and he had a really funny area. It's really big highs in some some down for sure but I mean there was one stretch where he was Crushing the ball every night and I think he made himself into a possibility of A. I don't think he's the first Baseman of the future. I'd not sure that the the first basement of the futures in the organization now if it's anybody it is Lewin But I mean he earned himself another year at starting at first base. Ace unless the Marlins go out and make play for like an eric themes or something. But I don't really see that happening Lewin should be up by the end of the year. Though I mean he had a great great year ear down on the farm and and he kinda struggled a little bit When he came to Jacksonville but he hit for Tana power and he's been hitting for power in the Dominican in league urged a winner league as well so hopefully he's up in September by the late of the season. I think if he has another good year he will be so. So he'll make some starch. But Yeah Cooper is probably the opening day first Baseman at this point and the behind Lou. India's is pretty thin. Yeah it's pretty. It's pretty thin. There's this Kid Evan Edwards that I really like he plays in Clinton he finished the season with Clinton he was one of the other draft picks. I can't remember which round he was in. But maybe like five or something but he had a really nice year and he plays first base and just solid production first basis where. We're really dry. where the MARLINS are really dry in the system? There's not a ton Lewin was when we acquired Lewin. It was huge huge because he is now the premier first base prospect in the system whereas we didn't really have won all a lot of it before that was moving. One of these outfielders wanted this. We just the outfield is just loaded in Miami and the thought was moving a guy like Gerard Incur Nazione or Tristan Pompeii. Or somebody else to who isn't as strong defensively in the outfield to first base. That was kind of like the project going forward kind of like what happened with Austin Austin Dean. It's the same thing so But yeah other than Lou and there's not really a true first base prospect out there. I mean let's just go and hop on a second base. You know we keep talking about all of these trades and you know one of the big pieces of one of these big trades just decline was his option just got declined kind of what's achier retrospective on you. Know Stalling. Castro's Miami career. Did it go how you know. I thought he would be gone and by the first deadline to be honest with you. I thought that he was a guy that had. He had a first good for season. What she had a pretty good year? I think the first year would have been flipped for a return and so we were all kind of surprised when he stuck through the first trade. Deadline And then we were definitely all surprised when he made it through this year The reason he made it through this year is because he didn't get hot until right right before the deadline and it was it was too little too late. The marlins couldn't swing any value for him at that point. I wrote an article around that time that they just had to get him out just so that they could get Issan in Because he was just wasting away in AAA at that point with the way he was hitting down there. But yeah you know it was just kind of it's one of those rebuild careers with the Marlins you know he's here and yes some really great moments moments. He had a really great second half this year which will probably get him paid again and and you know he was good to the fans in and and always a pleasure was starling so and he left with grace so you can't really complain about that from a fan perspective but yeah I mean in on the field you know it was. It was a roller coaster and I expected the Marlins to not let him walk like the way they did. But that's kind of how the cards got played out here. Don't WANNA dump jump into that That trade just yet because what was once we get to the field. We're GONNA go for all three of them you authoring big ones obviously If we look back at that Dee Gordon Trade though you know same position here I mean obviously being played everywhere. What's kind kind of the outlook on that day? Gordon trait can back. We Got Neider in the Dee Gordon Trade which was just just an absolute steel in my mind. Neither it is possibly our top pitching prospect. Well besides sixto. Obviously you could argue. He's maybe the next best pitching prospect. Like personally I would say. It's Edward Cabrera. He had a huge jump. This year just leapt off the page. But yeah neither it's really stellar. He was hurt all year but he had a really really nice fall he went out to Arizona and had a really great fall and so him and Duggar made some starts in the league this year. Here and he's another guy that project to be kind of a you know an arm that comes up and down every now and then and he made some good starts so I definitely think the outlook on Gordon Trade was pretty good. All things considered I mean. I'm the eternal optimist but I thought that swinging night out of that was pretty good but yeah I mean you definitely blue you know. There was a huge hole at second base left by and there was a huge hole in the locker room that was left by D.. But hopefully hopefully. Hopefully Sean can be what we think he is in. He can fill that void Assan. Oh man where do I start He had such a good year in AAA. I mean every night. He was just launching the ball. I think he hit near around. Thirty home runs this year He was really just spectacular to watch this year And his defense is something that surprised me but yeah it seemed like every night at one point point in the summer. It just seemed like every night he was just hitting a home run or go and two for four with a double or making us. We play out at second base so the kid hits for a ton of power he hit. He slugged five seventy eight in AAA this year. Obviously we saw what happened with the offense and AAA this year so those numbers might be inflated. Just a little bit but his slash was three zero five. Three Ninety five five seventy eight. He had a one thirty two runs created plus so just an absolutely spectacular occular year. He draws a lot of walks. Which is what I absolutely love about? Him is really great approach and and you saw that when he came up to the minor when he came up to the major she walked almost ten percent clip and was striking out under thirty percent And even though the numbers might not reflect how good he looked his his approach looked really advance for a young kid his age and he always kind of takes time at the new level to adjust like when he got to Jacksonville when he first got into the system he started really slow out of the gates and got really hot to the point where they sent him to a a New Orleans at the end of his first year with us in the same thing happened this year where he kinda struggled out of the gates was hitting under the Mendoza line in like May and then just it came out swinging and started touring the cover off the ball and put up those numbers that I just read also Really just an exciting prospect of left handed swinging swinging. Everybody says that the swing kind of looks like Robbie Canot and if you look at it it really does look like Robbie Canot I'm not sure he'll I think that's pretty much the ceiling for him. Put I think another a good comparison. my buddy on the podcast in Smith made was he said in Kinzler and I think that's probably the most likely scenario. I would say if it doesn't completely go south but I. The comparison comparison the ultimate comparison for this kid is Robbie Casino and just swinging left handed hitter that can get on base in play really good defense offense out second base. I think anybody you know growing up in Texas good. We'll tell you the income pretty damn good comfort. Yeah for sure her. If that's how it works out if that's your worst case scenario then you've got a really nice player with the song but you know he's going to have to take some strides because he did struggle to make contact in the bigs But he's so he's going to have to take some stride snakes sheer but I'm not worried about him because like I said he takes a while to adjust at new levels is usually so all right so moving to shore up the Marlins Twenty nineteen heart and Hustle Award winner. Miguel row house that sticks out to me when looking at his was defensive war stat which was in twelve six which is Top Ten in baseball. And Yeah just give me your thoughts on his this season. I love Meguro. He is the heart and soul of the team he really is and when we extended him. I was just really happy happy because he is the perfect guy. From this era marlins baseball that should carry over into the next one. When all these young guys come up? He'll be the perfect kind of veteran Brin leader in the clubhouse he can play all around the infield and like you said I mean he plays Gold Glove. Defense out you know. He'll never get the recognition for it but he plays really stellar defense at shortstop and he had some really nice moments with the bat this year. Really some good stretches so I'll make bureau. I'm glad we kept him around. I thought he had really nice season. And he earned himself the extension and he earned himself a chance to be like I said the the the carryover from this age of Marlins baseball to what is coming and what we all expect to be. Just the next grade age of the franchise here so looking in under him in the farm. Obviously you got jazz. Chisel the prospect acquired on the gallon trade so we can jump into that real. Quick Gallon was Pretty good around the time of the trade how did you how did you feel about the trade and compared to how do you feel now. I'll tell you exactly where I was. I was in the online at PD Q.. And it was I was going into work and it was probably like what two thirty three o'clock on deadline headline day. And so I'm waiting for the Marlins to do something waiting and waiting and waiting and then I see that gallon to the d backs and I just felt betrayed almost honestly it felt like what was starting. You know what everybody said. The marlins which we're going to we're going to do which is all these guys are gonNA come. I'm up and then they're just going to ship them off and you know fire sale in the whole thing that Loria did and he really broke. This broke this fan base and it kind of felt that way the optics of the trade were really bad but then I kind of took a second to look at it and I realized what the Marlins did which is they used their pitching surplus which they had a tawny of arms. I mean they still have some. Their system is loaded with arms and they use that surplus to go out and fill a void in the system which which is power and they got this kid. Jazz who was really struggling with in the Arizona system was hitting two or four and then had an seven thirty two in his was through the roof. I mean at one hundred twenty three strikeouts over thirty percent k rate but then he came to to Jacksonville and was awesome and had put together eight. Seventy seven s was hitting for power all over the place taking walks and he really kind of cut the strikeouts outstanding so all of a sudden. Now you're looking at a top. He's rated fifty four on pipeline right. Now you're looking at top sixty prospect for a guy that falls in line even though he was awesome a loved watching gallon pitch. He was awesome when he came up to the majors. When you look deeper down the system he probably fell in line find somewhere around four or five six and you think that he might be the next guy out and you look at what you got for him and it looks a lot more positive so I thought the Marlins as frustrating it was to watch gallon go? I thought they did a really good job at that. Trade and all the traits that they made the deadline really because they had a huge problem with the lack of power in the system. And that has been in completely solved with the acquisitions of guys like Sanchez and Chisholm Diaz. So it gets a lot better when you look at jazz and then another guy. I don't if you guys want to talk about him. But is Jose Denver's at shortstop and yeah. Yeah this guy is fun man. I mean he came over in the sand trade and plays great great defense and can hit the ball. I mean he missed a lot of the year But you can really put the bat on the ball all across in forty seven games period. Three twenty two with a seven eighty one. PS and he is nineteen years old. He is younger than I am almost a year younger than I am. And so this kid is really really really really exciting. And the way he plays defense in the way that he can hit at such an advanced. He's in high and he's putting those numbers together is really impressive. Impressive so I thought the Marlins did that Stanton trade obviously decastro thing didn't work out and it was more money than anything but divers was the real gem of that trade for sure her he kind of went from jump back home for a second. He went from the Jackson sons. The Jacksonville Jumbo shrimp like our friend. Tommy I'm sure we'll talk later Interesting character yeah. I sure I'm just trying to you. Know who sticks at shortstop is can both of these guys guys play short or do you think that somebody like jazz. Winds up playing second. If anybody you know if you're telling me okay only one of are these two guys six at short from a defensive side. It's gotta be diverse. He's a little more advanced defensively. He's supposedly one of the best defensive defensive prospect if not the best in the system but don't sell jazz short on his defense either. I mean he's pretty solid defender out there from all accounts so I think those both of those guys really have a good shot at staying at short. I'm trying to look down. Oh Cyrus is another exciting shortstop prospect. Don't even get me started on Naseem noon. Yeah I love that kid and then Jose Solace is a kid. That's a little bit farther away Ed shortstop from the International Free Agency market. Who you know? We'll see coming slowly coming up the tracks in the next next few years here but the future at shortstops pretty bright for the marlins but I mean at the end of the day right now because of what you gave up to get him in because of his stature. It sure is a top sixty prospect. You have to hope that jazz is the guy just from an optics standpoint. You have to and don't be surprised if a short shortstop stop when the MARLINS are ready to go out and get a big name. If shortstop is the position that they go after you know get not saying they're gonNA get Franscisco in door but really trust in Marlins beat reporter Craig Misha's always Kinda hinted that not. It's not going to happen. But it's it's something that the marlins would consider down the road. But I'm not going to speculate on that at all but I'm just saying that shortstop is a position because of the way that the roster construction currently breaks down that the marlins could look into making a huge acquisition at two or three years from now. Where does New Year's here's fallen your favorite marlins prospects and kind of? Why is he one of those guys is right up there? He's just lovable man. I mean he just came in and young kid just has like bright is that just. He looked shell shocked every time. He walks in the ballpark. And he's got this swagger about him that will really excites you. As a marlins fan I mean he just has this like he's got like drip. Almost you know every time he walks around and his instagram is really is a fun follow and him in and the boys down in the cellar just always chopping it up and looking like they're having a good time and just looks like a kid that enjoys the game and just does it for the love of the pure passionate a game and he's he's really good at it I love slick fielding shortstops. And he didn't end up is numbers. Don't look great at the end of the year but he started out hitting pretty pretty well for an eighteen year old out just outta high school. So he's really an exciting prospect of the Marlins have and you know he's weighs eighteen years old. He just got did. He hasn't even reached four season ball yet. But he's a guy that definitely plays into the cards at shortstop in the future for the Marlins but yeah that's three to four years from now I would say I have a feeling of this. Is everybody like a probably fifty percent. Marlins fans favourite player. So we're going to the corner. How good was Brian this year? Good good Goo- really good. I mean he sold me like I always kind of thought that third base was the biggest hole. Because there's not a true third baseman like if you look at our top thirty there's not third baseman listed on here and I was kind of afraid about third base position and Anderson's ability to stick their now. I'm not GonNa say this is like a championship winning third baseman. I still believe in the concept that you have to have you know. A- no-one Aaron Auto Kris Bryant type pregnant at third bit. Yeah Bregman rent down. You know what I mean at third base to win to win a championship I still think third base is one of the most important offensive positions out there and I don't think Brian Anderson is the championship winning third baseman necessarily. But he's a guy that can hold over that third that hot corner for The next few years until you know maybe the MARLINS are ready to make a jump. People get mad at me on twitter all the time for saying that won't be on this team if when they went championship but he definitely earned himself the right to get a shot at being the third basement of the future. I'm still still not one hundred percent sold but I mean he's going to play third base for the next probably three to five years for the marlins unless they go out and third base is where they acquire a big name You know what I mean so he. He's the guy going forward right now because they're like I said there is nothing behind him. In the system there are a few fringe draft prospects that just came up that play third base but nothing really serious yet in in terms of a guy. That's GONNA come up and take his spot because there's just nothing in the system right now. USA looks very different than it did three years ago. Yeah the three now. We two three years now Yada got traded before the twenty seventeen sees. Yeah when he eighteen. This'll be the third year. That was definitely the birds. So let's kind of walk through some of these trades real quick before we get into the current one. We're GONNA leave the yellow trade last because I hate Lewis Brinson Princeton. So that's the primary we'll get we'll talk about Zona. I yeah the album Tara back likely. You know a big pitching prospect for this as he was pretty good like I I could Sierra. Then you get gallant. Who Wind up training any partic- home? Then you guys Don Oh. How did you feel about that trait? Initially and how do we feel about it now. It wasn't the headliner. It is the third one is Kinda the one. Yeah it was definitely kind of the one that flew under the radar even though maybe besides stanton probably the best to what so loved here. He was so loved love to we'd loved Osuna. We were so sad to see him go and he left with so much grace but the the Sierra thing like went south really fast like we were all really excited about mags and then he just kinda turned into like he would be so good in two thousand seven. You know what I mean what. He's just it's not like he he's not the kind of player that is really successful in the MLB today because he doesn't hit for power and he doesn't take a lot of walks but but when he gets on base you can use the speed so well he's such a tremendous base runner Santa talk about in a second gallon we touched on. I don't know too much about Costano to be honest with you but gallon. I mean you flip you turn into jazz which is great and so ultimately the trade is Sierra Sierra Jazz and sandy for Ozouni who's probably GONNA be out of Saint Louis. I don't is free actor. He's yeah he's gone so overall I mean you know that's not too bad CD is just electric. I mean he really is and you know all the talk was the stuff and can he put it altogether and he didn't really strike out a ton of guys this year and which was really kind of weird considering how electric is stuff is but he just got the job done like he threw a matic's this year. He he had like a complete game in eighty. Something eighty nine pitches maybe fullest. Baseball will appreciate you so much for that. He was he was great man. I mean he just like I said just got to job. Donnie pitched a full year which was huge because he was not healthy the year before he had trouble awesome injury but he played himself into a rotation spot in the future. Because all everybody Eh. That was Kinda down on Sandy. said that you know he'll be seventh-inning guy in eighth inning guy but I mean he just was tremendous this year and so I'm really really excited about Sandy. I think he can totally put it all together and still be that two or that to so you know maybe I mean with six coming. It's hard to say that anybody besides him will be the ace in the system but yeah he can definitely play himself back into reaching his ceiling fan. Graphs put out this article about his sinker. I don't know if you've read it. But he started using his sinker more in July he really went away from the fast fastball and started using the sinker and his F- Ip was great and his strikeout rate was up six percent and the sinker the pitch shape keeping everything that they talked about was just so much better than the fastball. And that's when he really started. Finding his success was down the stretch so excited for year. Three of Sandy. I'm looking forward to seeing another. Hopefully another full year out of him and watching him continue to develop. So you know if he turns into that too and Zuma's not in Saint Louis anymore all the sudden you wizard about either yeah. Exactly true. Doesn't look too bad either. So it's it's hard to say that you want to trade if you don't get a title out of it if you're the contending Fisher for sure sure no it is especially with what the cardinals tried to do. They tried they needed a power bad and they brought in Osuna and you know he was great. There don't get me wrong. I Love Marcel. I've rooted for Marcel the entire way even though I absolutely despise yeah he is. He's just like Grizzly bear. But you just goes out there and he just has fun enjoys the game and makes a fool out of themselves sometimes in left field but I mean the kid you know. He hits her Tana Power and he's a good solid hitter you you nobody can underestimate how much of an impact Barry Bonds had on him. That was his breakout. Season was when bonds was the hitting coach here and I was twenty sixteen and and since then he's just been a completely different ball player and so it was definitely sad to see him go and it would be awesome. It's not going to happen but free agent. Everybody wants to bring us this unit back. It's not going to happen. But you know I- success the rest of the way and I think the Marlins ultimately did a pretty good job with that deal despite the criticism you know. Yeah yeah well. It's funny because bats. I feel like that's always going to be known as the third deal absolutely. Yeah Yeah I mean. Let's go to. Let's go to the first deal. Let's talk about the I. Guess what everybody thought was the biggest one at the time which I think might actually provide maybe the worst return maybe out of all. Let's talk about the stanton deal because I mean Castro's who for the Marlins or for the Yank over the yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah for the Yankees. I mean he's like the most hated man in New York. And that's saying something really upsetting. Boy I love jeep but anyway you were saying let's go we've already talked about Castro's you just talked about Sandy. Somebody they'll as somebody else that's probably GONNA wind up in this rotation is horrid Guzman. WHO's in steel deal already? Touched on Denver's kind of walk us through Guzman and like what he means this organization right now flame thrower. I mean this is straight heat at all times flame thrower and the secondary stuff kind of came along this year and the numbers got a lot better He's still walking a ton of guys but he really cleaned up at the end of the year like his end of the year was really really nice. Actually which which is really just kind of you know bodes well like I. I always kept saying he is going to do everything he can to try. And prove to the Marlins Orleans that he can be a starter in the majors Because that's all he knows how to do is just pitch and be a starter. I mean he put together some really nice starts at the the end of the year and he spent the four year in Jacksonville. I would expect him to be up in New Orleans next year. The walks have come down the walks to come down he or else because he just kind of like explodes. He'll be having a great outing through four or five and then he'll we'll just kind of have one inning. Were blow up. You know what I mean. And if he doesn't have that inning where he blows up then he's absolutely fantastic but if he does then it it gets tough with him. So that's why I still kinda think that he plays a reliever and I think that's there's nothing wrong with that whatsoever. Like the hundred mile on our fastball. And pretty good secondary's ice slider and a changeup. That's coming along. Well I'M GONNA play tremendously out of the bullpen. So worst case scenario for the Marlins they've found their closer the future he's totally a guy that could be just an elite closer because like I said he can be really really good in short bursts. I and that's all you need out of closer. Really is one inning five out sometimes and if he can do that consistently but he but like. I said. We shouldn't be talking about this because George will tell you and he switched from George this year. He'll tell you you probably that he's going to do everything he can't be starter and he showed that in his performance at the end of the year so this is the beer for him. This coming year is the year for him. It's either he pitches really well at the next level or if he stays in Jacksonville or he struggles and he will know this year whether he's going to be projects to be in the rotation station for the Marlins to in the future or whether he's going to be there closer of the future. He told me that two people it change there to help people say their names the same deal. Yeah I know right right at the beginning of the year he was like oh by the way. My name is George not whore. Yup I did it I did it I said. Hey on the podcast. The whole sees early like how people people like how people still call the chargers. The San Diego chargers fill call the Marlins the Florida Marlins. I still call him all the time. So you're not the first person. Listen to make that mistake for sure. How often does a trade go down in the centerpiece of the trade is the worst player in the train? When it comes comes down like I'm filling e you're calling sanders player? No no no. We're going into the yellow trade because I'm about to shit on those Brinson. There is a reason that he's been traded at times. Feels like five times. At least it doesn't happen very often and it really doesn't it really doesn't it. So it's so upsetting because I love L B A love him. He's doesn't the beginning of the year he he did it did he was hitting three hundred after like two or three weeks. And I'm like finally like please Louis like I'm sick of entire of people just shitting all over you. You know what I mean like I you know I get it yellow pages and every candidate. You know he's going to be a parental. MVP PECAN it. I get it just put it together. And it's so upsetting me like he's seems like such a great guy and I. I tried to speak with him this year but we never got the chance to and he was really good but for a while in New Orleans and he still there are still Moments where you're like God that guy can do it man. But he's just you know it just seems like another boxed in or Braxton. It's just the same same kind of thing. This athletic freak. That has all the tools to be a great baseball player and he gets the major leagues. And you can't hit a curveball. So yeah it's it's crazy how that happened right away where you got this kid coming in. And he's your opening day center. Fielder replacing You know one of the new faces of the League in Christian Yelich and he just doesn't work out But the rest of it is great. Yeah the rest of it is great and what I will say is it was really bad. It was really really bad until the trade deadline this year because there of what the marlins did did to make up for the fact that LBJ isn't going to pan out and the depth that they added to this outfield in the depth that they added to the system especially with the draft and the deadline and like the one two punch of the draft and the deadline that they had the marlins are going to be all right and as sad as it is to say. Lewis Brinson. Doesn't it seemed to be part of the plants of the future in this franchise. which if you told me that two years ago I would have thought you crazy? Yeah he was good in. I know how it panned out. He was good enough to be in deals for Jonathan Lacroix who contributed to that Texas team at the time when he got traded in Milwaukee and Christian Yelich. So you're not a bad. You know you fool to different organizations joe into thinking that you were good sure did and and the other thing is like the brewers saw something Y- you know because the marlins went after flatter Bouchette. This is what is reported. Is that the Marlins when after flatter bullshit because they knew what they had with Yelich but the blue jays wouldn't budge so they you know they went after a Kunia and the braves when Bush and all credit to the Blue Jays and the braves. No matter how good Christian Yelich for not putting a On a Kunia and on Vladi and on shut because those guys are going to be tremendous three of the faces of this new era a baseball but credit to the brewers. For for saying you know what this is. This guy is somebody that we need. We need to go after Christian Yelich. He can take the next step here he he can become that thirty POW thirty home. Run hitter that a lot of people saw he. Can you know I'm not saying I thought he was going to be an MVP perennial MVP VP candidate and hit three twenty and slugged. Seven hundred every year. Because I didn't I can't believe it's the case but I knew he had thirty home. Run potential every marlins fan that watched him. We'll tell you that he had thirty home. Run potential and you know and now all of a sudden you know Lewis Brinson is what you get back. It's tough but from the Abreu standpoint. It's great because you took that risk. You said Yeah we might be giving up on this on this Brinson guy and maybe he turns out to be great but our guy the guy that we want. It's going to be better and look at how that worked out for him to playoff appearances because of him. In a row for franchise that was just kind of wiggling in mediocrity for a long time. Yes so we already talked about Brenston. We've already talked about D.. As Monte Harrison is the four pieces. How could this is my guy right here? Like number one guy. We spoke to him at the beginning of the season before all the injuries went down when when he was he was hot he was on fire when we talked to him and he is just the most down to Earth Guy that you could ever talk to you all about faith. All about family family His brother Shack Harrison who's in the NBA. And you just comes. He's just got athlete in his blood and deuce appear athletes dog. He played high school He played football in high school. I think he was like hi recruit in high school and the kids. Just baller swaggie. Where's the chain? One buttons unbuttoned. He's got the white arm sleeve in white cleats and he just has the makings of a ball player. You know and really kind of had a tough year in Jacksonville. When he first came into the system and kate a ton and in that kind of suggested to me all right they'll just run it back and you no have him go to Jacksonville but clearly the marlins saw something in him because they sent him up to New Orleans this year and he tore the cover up the ball? Put together a really really nice year. with an opium right around eight hundred hit for power and he kind of had this new approach that he implemented in the fall league last last year when he went to Arizona and there wasn't a ton of power coming from it so coming into the year we will Monte tap back into that power we all know he has any did he hits nine. Home runs in fifty six games this year. So the kids really good. He is going going to have to cut the strikeouts. He's going to struggle with strikeouts early in his career but if he can hit the ball hard which is all he does when he puts on the ball he hits the ball hard and it goes really far and he's a good defender because he's so athletic and he's got a great arm he's going to be really good ball player from the Marlins and I am so so excited I cannot. I'm drooling over Monte. I cannot wait until he gets up to the big because I will be at his debut and albeit a Monte Harrison Jersey. So Oh I love this kid I can talk about all day. I talked about them all year on the POD and like I said just a great kid. That's easy to root for which is what a lot what what's happening a lot around this marlins organization right now is good kids. That are just easy root for and I think you know. Obviously Brinson was the face of the deal will and has emerged. and Yom's will get sick is awesome but Montes the jam of the deal. No doubt about it. Just because of the president said he'll bring and also because I just think he's going to be a good ballplayer. AM's great first half and how to see project. I was so surprised with his performance when he came up. Because I knew I knew that was good but he was he dealt. Last year he had a great great year last year and then struggled a little bit in Jacksonville. This year he's like he's he's kind of Hendrix. I mean not. He's not as is good. Kyle Hendricks don't get me wrong. It's similar you know. The Cup is similar. Just not going to blow the fastball by you but he's GonNa put it in a spot where you just simply. We can't hit it and the change is great. The curveball is great. It's wicked and he's just got the stuff that can just play. You know he's not going to overpower you. Like so. Many pitchers nowadays are in in the Marlins have a lot of those guys in the system. But he's just going to. You know pitches ways. He's just a a good pitcher does he. Project as the as the to even the three no probably not you know. Some people like ally who's is our editor at fish. Stripes is Kinda lower on him than I am. He thinks he kind of plays. Like journeyman arm you know back and forth between AAA and you know. But I think he's I think he can play in the rotation very well at the back end. I think he's got a future in the Organization for sure because he's just got its pitch ability not with him like he didn't just throw his pitches where he wants to strike you out and I was impressed with the strikeout numbers when he got up to the big starting out a ton of guys so I think you can play. Say He's not going to be the number one and number two but I think he's a guy that can definitely hang around in this rotation for a long time but with with the arms that are down there you know he is a guy that could definitely get passed over. Just because of the amount of talent that's still yet to come up to the bigs for the Marlins I mean and we kind of hit all those trades. Now those pretty ex- pretty fun it. Those deals crazy man. I mean when that was all going down it was just like learning new names. You know figuring out how were sky slots into the organization you know is this. Is this one of the guys of the future you know is here. Is he a top hundred prospects. You know what I mean like and and it was so tough because of the noise. That was all around. And you know I was obviously always a big proponent of this rebuild re-build so I kinda had to play you know that just relax. Just do that with padres twitter all the time. Yeah no it's tough. Man is so hard hard because people get so angry and and like I said earlier like Lauria really broke this fan base. I mean he really did. Nobody trusts this team anymore. You're coming back. It's starting to happen again. People are starting to kind of see. What's going on down in Miami and I think this next year will kind of be when it all starts to really really show the major league Cool thing about like we've already talked about all five trades that I wanted to talk about now I was doing the research on it and I figured out that. What chagas data this right was your one four five ten eleven sixteen twenty three twenty six rank prospects right? Yes and that doesn't even include k the international bonus money that you y'all got in those deals to acquire thirteen and twenty seven being the Mesa's watch out for twenty seven watch out for gene. I love junior junior junior way more than I like. Victor E. Yeah I still think victor can kind of put something together. Because he's such such a great defender. I mean just going to be like if he makes it to the majors and makes it easy going to lead defensive center fielder no doubt deal with its. Yeah Yeah put that junior kidman brings the swag. He hit two eighty four with a seven sixty four. He just turned eighteen. He turned eighteen the two months ago. The kid him in Naseem or like buddy buddy like they had this little romance that followed all year and and Dared Fun to watch. And Yeah that kid I mean he's got the swagger he's got the confidence and he plays well. I mean we didn't even talk about the the deadline online deals. The deadline deals. Were so fantastic. Lisa suck bottoms. Yeah let's do it. We we didn't even talk about Jesus. Yeah let's talk about Sanchez. Yeah so so. We got him for Anderson and who have been was really good in the playoffs. By the last the numbers Anderson was great down the stretch for the race and it was betrayed. Richards was Richard But Anyway J.. J. Chases is just like that power void from the left side of the plate that the marlins needed to fill they used Trevor Richards who was good young arm that a lot of people really liked because he had that sick change of his change. It's disgusting but like I said earlier with with what they did gallant. They use the surplus of arms arms to go out in a choir a need which was power from the left side of the plate and they did it with Lewin and they did with jazz all three power hitting lefties that they acquired wired at the deadline and that that deal that they made with Minnesota where they traded. They did it again. They use valmont. Chris Valmont who was a really nice pitching prospect prospect. I really liked valmont. I think he's in the twins top thirty. They used him and who else in Romo right and Romo to go out and and get D. S.. Because we needed a power hitting first baseman and we got a power hitting first baseman and then we use gallon to get jazz so this organization. This front office knows what they're doing. They know the system really well. I talked about this all you on the podcast that they have like this. Really good organizational awareness that you're you know reflects as well on how on the roster construction their ability because instructors Rosser that they know where there are voids and talent and they plugged them right away. They went right after him. Attacked Him with Blah Day and with Jason Jazz in with Lewin and burdock is a really exciting prospect out of the stress so You know they got going going on man. Tomorrow's really got it going on. I'm telling you we were talking about before how we were actually excited to do this preview these last year when we did it with Louisa was Kinda barebones like you know in a lot of great But you know it's just it was just like kind of the things we gotta do. The marlins this year it was like we get to do the MARLINS. Yeah and I've been so fat. It happened so fast man I mean all even this year the box scores were so boring. It was all about out. The pitchers was all about the pitchers. And then it was gone and Monte and and that's it and like Gerard Nazione was having a great it agree you're all year I loved your outfields loaded in Miami but anyway and then all of a sudden the draft draft comes in and burdock search sent in the world on fire and Meissner has a good year and Evan Edwards who nobody will talk about is having a great year. You don't on having a nick ready who nobody knows about is having a great year and then day comes in and struggles a little bit but then you start to see that pure hitter that you know that everybody knew was there with day and so all of a sudden. These boxers started lighten up to one games. became six five games became eight seven games. You know what I mean so it happened so fast and then the trade deadline happen and all the sudden had Jesus hitting a home run every night jazz hidden homerun every night Lewin hit home run every night and and the it it really liked the narrative kind of this was the year that the script kind flipped on the marlins in terms of everybody just kind of down on them and now they're rated as a top number four on pipelines. Thirty four four in two years are unbelievable. What what this what this organization has done and to you know? It's time to stop selling them short. It's time to move up saying the same old marlins because it's not the same old marlins jeeter in these guys came in and they had a plan and so far you know I wanna be like you know not say that they want every deal that they made and that this worked out so well and it just seemed like I'm just a homer but if you really look at it and it's really worked out for the Marlins really well and and you know they got the boys on the move. They definitely got the boys on the move down here to pressure. They literally took like what normal people do onto cade where like they take a team and they just completely trade everything Yup Yup and or you know what you do on the show and rebuild it from there. I've done that a million times and the marlins just did it. It is flat out in real life. And I'm telling you it was. It was a month that all the sudden it really took shape. It all came together when the draft tappin because the draft like if you look at that draft gorgeous it's beautiful. It's beautiful. They signed Federer. They signed Moquegua. They used used all this all these seniors. You know what I mean these guys they could sign for really cheap so that they could go out and use their bonus pool money to sign the the fitter than the seem. You know what I mean. All these guys that they felt they wanted to lock down. It's a lot of college bats which is what was needed was really good hitters. Just pure baseball players bure hitters. Guys that are GONNA hit two seventy to eighty with four fifty plus slugging percentages and and and then they got their high school guys. You know there are three main high. School is that they got this seam and Federer. They're all in the top thirty ready and they all locked them. They locked all of them down which I thought was so impressive and then the trade deadline happened and obviously seeing gallon go was was bad bad but all you know after after the deadline they ranked number four in the system. And that's when I realized that people poor finally taking notice of what's going down in Miami and all the work that I've been doing for this season number three three three and a half. It really started when we treated like D. and Phelps and got Pablo back and. That's when it really started and then and then since then I've been putting in the work covering these guys and trying to make people aware of what was happening. One the rumors of jeeter. You're buying the team or out there. And the work is finally paying off man and the work of the Marlins organization most importantly finding finally paying off because people are finally realizing that this isn't the same old marlins but the field shape up to look like on opening day. Do you think this year opening outfield. We we think birdie maybe I mean he was. He's he's almost. Two Warp had a pretty good year. I got to imagine. You know they're gonNA put prints out there and raise obligation after they have to. God bless maybe Sierra makes the opening day roster just to give him a shot to fill the roster spot I imagine like they got to spend some money because they have to fill it a roster and they have to raise the payroll little bit. We're going to maybe maybe put put better like Colquhoun is a guy that some people say we should go after expensive verdict already could plant. Yeah by by September. Hopefully it looks like Maude. Tae J. Zeus Plan and Brinson. Now hopefully as much as I love you know what hopefully day honestly I don't think thinks. Oh Eddie if the day comes up in September like this kids can start the year in Jacksonville right. I think he had six ninety. S and the only the reason it was only six ninety s because he kind of started slow. Well he's a guy that you can trust them Dave right they love this kid. They love this kid and he'll probably be with the team in in spring so if he's with the team in spring and he has a nice spring and they like what they see from him. I think he'll be in Jacksonville. And if he goes to Jacksonville and tears to cover off the ball. You know that's where you're gonNA see your best pitching so why why go to AAA. I mean I guess he kind of has but Monte is going to be in the show at some point this year Jay. Zeus is going to be in the show at some point this year. And there's got to be somebody. Who am I missing? Know Scoops going to play first base riot prior to Anderson's can play third base. Dean doesn't play appeal. Ms Right they and can we end the dean thing. I mean people tried to do it for so long. And it's just it's just not gonNA happen but yeah print since going to see a bunch of time out there and you know who knows what can happen with that. I mean he's still you you know talent doesn't just go away. I mean athletes where he finally figures it out. Yeah but not really seems seems look a lot different than I think. I mean the Infield is GonNa look pretty similar. You know you'll go like I base probably Cooper second base issan shorts dot. Aw Ro third base be a and I'll follow behind the plate put. The outfield is work. It's really interesting it's work. It's really interesting for the future because there are are so many guys. We didn't even mention camera advisor. Connor Scott is had a great year. Totally changed my mind on him. This this year Gerard. Encarnacion is the most underrated prospect in this system hands. My hands are on the table. He had a great year he had a great rape fall. burdock is a guy that toilet cover off the ball in Clinton issued her a hit nine forty nine in sixty nine games in the minors. This year hit three. Oh eight with a five forty two. Slugging percentage scene there are so many options and then obviously the big one is it. It's all about this kid. I'm I love this. Pick an SEC guy. Through through. So I loved this pick and it it it. He is intimately what it comes down to. I'd say in the outfield. So I think if you look at the future what you really want is you want day Monte and cheese and I think that's about as good as it gets with Monay either Montier Day Center and right and then Jason Left. We're just starting pitching now and forty. Ask you this question once. Whose idea was the Detroit Crisp Addict Fernando Rodney David Sampson? The troll man. That guy on twitter. That wants you to know that he screwed up the marlins future and he thinks he did a great job but he did a actually a WanNa put the sunny I want to put the sunny song. The troll Sung in there now for some reason. You gotta pay the trump. No I was talking about this with a friend bovine last night we were talking about survivor. And how David Samson was on survivor and he was the first person voted off season. And it brought me so much joy day to watch. Geoff say David. The tribe is spoken at butterflies. Torch you have no idea Guys I mean like I said like that Paddock in Rodney thing. That's just your typical and for one. It's just your typical marlins deal that went down back in the day where it's just shortsighted and it's just. That's the kind of deals that the marlins were making back in the day. The the gallon thing. Yeah I understand. Gallon was great while he was here. But it's so much different than the paddock thing. You know what I mean and Louis Casteel. And Domingo Herrmann forgivable so many marlins around the league that I mean back to Biggie. An Andrew Miller Miller and Oh my God it's the list goes on and on you know Kiki Hernandez fucking marines nick. You you know what I mean like riddled around the League got all these traits came from. It's different now. You know the trade so we talked about like look at the results that have come out of all those traits are completely different than the jared cozart trade and the Mark Burleigh trade. And I mean you know. The the Dontrelle Willis in the Josh Beckett in the dishwasher sworn in and out one and that was all done by Laurie and his minions so going to sixto. Let's get in the exciting stuff. Now is the one that we've kind of avoided talking talking about so far. Yeah how good is six. Good Good Ian my coast on the podcast. I want to see him and he said Johnny Cueto through a lot. Yeah and that's scout guys. That's that's is the number one so that's high as it goes. That's the ceiling thrown out. There I mean it's like it's like how I've been comparing borough to college football reference here Pairing Joke Brady. You know what I mean. It's like it's so dangerous to do but when you do it he he just wins but when you when you look at it it kind of makes sense put six though I mean he looks like Cueto on the mound like he just Kinda got that same same kind of motion and he's just flame the flame thrower and his slider so disgusting and he. His numbers weren't great to start the year but the problem with him him was he was literally throwing too many strikes like just leaving the ball in the strike zone too often and because he rose it so hard he was getting hit Hard right back at him and then he just put it all together like in May and June he just put it all together and his numbers are so fantastic let me look at this him and Louis Keno are the only two people right now because I I think you're right on Cueto because I think I think he reminds me more quote. I think senior reminds me more of Pedro just like the way he care. I mean I don't know how six Oh carries herself but the teen wire. Yeah no he. He's alive wire and he has that like cocked back when he throws back through. The fastball. Isn't aw it's electric fastballs. Electric this slider is discussing. The change up is really what kind of put him over the edge this year and said is that his changeup age of really came along and was really good but I mean in in eighteen games they kinda limited he only one hundred and three innings in eighteen games this year. Two you point five. Three era onepointoh three whip. Let me put up his F- Ip for a second. But I mean it just got better every every week with six every time time out on the mound. It's just got better and better and better and you saw. He had a two six nine F. I. P. compared to a two five three year so his results were legit. You know it was just him just going out there and just being better than everybody in double A. and that's a pretty talented league that southernly. So he's better. He's spider than everybody else in. He's going to be a UP BY HSUN next year. He's going to be in the moral more he's going to be on the MARLINS next year. If it should be by June the guy's amazing and yeah I think he's quite. Oh good like if you Ask how good he is. I think it's Cueto. I mean that's super high praise. You know I mean yeah I like that for you got you got him for like talent. You know. It's not like you got out of nowhere you know you acquired him and had to press really hard to acquire him. Yeah yeah he you know giving up mm. Jt wasn't easy but he's going to make it worthwhile little bitty we didn't have the ace. We had a ton of arms and we had a lot of like how I mentioned. Net like yams is kind of has the makeup of Karl Hendricks with a lot of those guys control Kinda finesse kind of pictures but this guy is just power power power and he can control it as good as anybody so I mean. This is the headline arm. We had a ton of arms. It was a surplus of arms. We didn't have that headline guy until this guy came into the system and this year he pitched like the ace of the future. And that's why you can't say anybody else. But him is the ace of the future and you can't say he's not because he is he. Is You know this is so tough for me to say. Because I'm such a Jose guy I love him so much and I miss awesome so much. But he is the most exciting pitching prospect in the MARLINS organization since Jose without a doubt and East GonNa hopefully live up to you. You Got Sandy Sixto Cabrera Gutman all nighter. Like who are we missing here. who are you missing steward not Stewart Garrett and rogers especially Rogers Dude. I was so low on Trevor Rogers because kind of bias gator. I wanted FIDO that year. Really really bad and there's been tremendous. Don't get me wrong. And it was just as pick of the era. That was their last first round pick and it was your typical Loria pick prep guy from New Mexico Co with not a ton of project ability you know like for whatever reason. He's a high prospect but I mean this guy's put it all together and he had a great year ear he. He walked twenty four guys this year. Compared to one hundred and twenty two strikeouts this is at high in eighteen games in one one hundred ten innings one hundred and twenty two strikeouts twenty four walks a two point five three era and a one point one zero whip. He was just fantastic. He was just absolutely absolutely fantastic. His sliders get better is changed. Up is what everybody was worried about. It's getting better the slow the fastballs really good. He's got more velocity. I saw him at the All Star game this year and he was sitting he was getting up towards ninety four and ninety five which is not something that we expected from him and then Brax. Finally we got a full season Braxton Garrett which is what we've been looking for forever he pitched twenty games in in Jupiter this year and he was really good to one hundred and five innings hundred eighteen strikeouts. Three seven walks one point two three whip three point three four. Era So those through the two guys that we have six top one hundred prospects in the moreland system right now. Those are the next to their day are going to be in this year and as long as they pitch you know. Continue to pitch the way they did this year. But Edie Edie is the hidden gem in this system electric stuff electric fastball. A little more control than a sandy or a whore. Hey not as much as six though but he had such a good year. It was just so so good and he was him and Gerardi encarnacion. We're probably the two guys that made the big sleeps in the entire system this year. Two to point two yard and Jupiter in eleven starts point nine five whip. I thought there was no way. This kid got to Aa this year and he did did and he was good when he got to AA eight starts two point five six. Era One point zero six whip forty three point two innings and he really brought the walks down this year so that kids can be really good and he earned his way onto the top one hundred lists he made it and I'm really happy for him. Seems like another one. That's a great kid and he's GonNa be really really really good and He played himself into you. Know really being a part of the future of the rotation tation here all right so time to close it out with the bullpen. How will the state of the bullpen look next year and will uranium be a bullpen peace? Now to be honest I don't know a ton about the bullpen. I feel like the the bullpen arms. That will be here. This year are going to come from free agency. But why Kiwi missed. We didn't touch on his Jordan Holloway. Holloway he's going to be able to me he just doesn't have the control but he's got the stuff and it. It flashed at times this year. so I think like him and and we talked about this earlier. Guzman can be an absolutely elite reliever if he doesn't stick in in the rotation which this year whether we find out whether that happens or not I think good rain eventually gets skipped. I don't know if it's this year but there's there's just too much talent in the farm for him to stick in the rotation. It would be inexcusable to leave him in the rotation considering that there. Are you know you can put together rotation right now just in the farm system of Sixto. Eddie Brax Rogers and Nick Neider and that's your five five right there and I think they are all have better career than Radia and that doesn't even mention Yams Pablo Lopez or Sandy. Who are all at the big league level right now so The marlins have too many good starters and rainy has the stuff to play out of the pen. So Yeah Yeah I think that eventually we see him in the pen here. Let's go to the draft are so oh Bowden said that he thinks that this is you know. Probably the best draft of any team so far this year right. Yeah A- About strategy I mean Gush on it man. Let's talk about today. I will kind of go from there. Yeah put days days just as solid as it gets in terms over prospect Hit at the. SEC level showed in advance approach at the SEC C. C. Level and the SEC is as good as you're going to get in you know they say it's basically comparable comparible to like low a high a level pitching and he went to high and at first wasn't great. He played a tawny baseball this year. I mean clearly some some exhaustion and showed but put together six ninety Oh. ps it. Three home runs walked. Eleven Times K Twenty nine times in one hundred and forty Eh. Bats kids good. I mean you know it's like the numbers. Don't jump off the page at you this year like we kind of expected him to like I expect him to just come in and hit it. Three hundred four hundred five hundred slash line kinda something like that. The numbers don't jump off the page. But it shows that I mean he's GonNa you know kind of break out next. Sure I think Jacksonville is reasonable for him. I think he can make the majors. Maybe next year if it really all comes together but the guy that really we need to talk about is Berbick. He had such a good year. He had nine forty nine great across two levels this year and this kid is just so exciting. I mean he just stares cover off the ball three. Oh eight four. Zero seven five forty two a slash. Josh Line Snuck into the top thirty list at the end of the year Who else can he just going to be? He played himself into the discussion of outfielder. The future I mean the draft Federer hat was pretty good in the G. C. L.. MOCHA was pretty good in the Al.. I mean Meisner. We didn't even talk about Meisner. Some people think pipeline said that Meissner might have the best tools in the draft draft and we got him with our third pick. No we took him in the competitive balanced round. Yeah yeah he was our second pick and uh he put together across two levels of seven fifty s and hit two seventy and got on base. It three eight clip would like to see a little more power but that'll come with just an adjustment to the new pitching but you know he kinda struggled at Mizzou in his senior season but has all the tools to put it all together and there are these all these guys that flew under the radar. Nick Ready Evan Edwards words that just kind of a J. D. or that's another guy he was the batting champion in the New York. Penn league this this year with Batavia all he does is get on base in steel basis. let me pull up these numbers right now. He's a guy him and burdock I came amount a right state and everybody was like where the hell did these guys come from. He had three fifty to four. sixty-nine four twenty three this year with a one seventy two weighted runs unscreened plus and only struck out eleven and a half percent of the time and stole twenty nine basis in sixty four games. So there are all these is young guys that nobody talks about because they're not popping up on the top thirty list yet but they will be eventually and this this draft is just stellar and like like we were talking about Austin like we were talking about how it happened with the draft where it just all came together so quickly weeks yes literally dude like literally like the box. Scores just started shopping off the page at you because all this offense came in that we needed needed and we were so depleted of hitting in this in this System that guys like Thomas Jones and Bryson Bregman and Chris Torres in I mean you know I can go on and on. We're still in the top thirty and then they just got lapped By all the guys that came into this system draft and with the trade deadline so yeah I mean the Marlins put together in their strategy was just fantastic and I love their strategy of really knowing the system well and saying okay. We're missing power so let's go after power. Let's go after advanced college bats that have been able the show to hit at the highest level. And they're gonNA come right into the miners and hit and that's exactly what happened and it's it's working you know. We usually close out with some some bold predictions. What are your predictions for the Miami? Marlins four twenty twenty. Let's say they get to seventy wins seventy said why not what I mean. I see I think we see five or six of these top fifteen guys make the majors by the end of the year. You're talk in day by September. You're talking a sixto by Jesus Neider Lewin. That sounds like sounds all guys that have a legitimate chance in my other. Bold prediction is that Giradi encarnacion is the best player in the MARLINS system next year. That guy is going to be fantastic on her. Love Him love him. He was a guy that like when we did our our our season preview on the podcast that I just Kinda like mentioned in passing like when we were going down all the rosters I was like. Oh this young guys kind of intriguing and then had a great year ear. Went to Jupiter went to high able and had a nice year went to the league had a put together a pretty nice fall Kids really exciting. He's just another guy that you add into the recipe and yeah and then I'll say that six does up by June six. So it's going to be there by June he's going to have like a Jordan. CAMMO type call up where they need somebody. And he's right there and and he'll stick with it and that'll be the last time he sees the miners. I think you're GONNA eat in joining us as we can talk. And marlins be sure to check out Ethan on this drives podcast. Earning your stripes next last week next week. We're going onto the Tigers Brandon Day.

Were they late surge nothing like a twenty to nothing run that guy in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter to clinch that number one seed it was looking grim yesterday. Given the fact that both Butler and Gore at Gorge. Goran Dragic Gorge. Neil Neil Gorsuch Serene Court justice. He was out drug it at was out Butler was out and what does it what the bucks giving up seventy three points in the first half that's back to back games they're like. You want seventy-three. Here you have seventy three and you get seventy three. But. They surge ahead and they clinched that number one seed and we could all just say. Okay everybody relax stars did what stars do Janas and Middleton lighting up. It's Good Friday. Everybody how you doing? Abe here. My Man Josh who went to State Fair last night as a full report, a full gastro report to bring you today thinks in here right now let's add yes and get her has to sit next to them and listen smell deal with the. That cabdriver and stabbed him yesterday. When I first saw it could stab later. So family enjoyed state fair last night with the food drive through. Yeah. How many stops did you make? So we win all of them no no. No stops we went to three different stops. On the drive through tour. And The total now. This was. Opening, night of this week. But we were. From start to finish it was like. Two and a half almost three hours. Oh my God and only stopped three times. His ups yeah. By choice or that's how long it actually. End Why would it be? Like you sat and like you ate your food can't. No. No. No it's a huge line. Oh My Waiting for three well. And the thing is, is that once you commit? Your in you can't back out. That's though there's no bailing. No. No? No. So you know. Combine the combine the the food drive with. Kovas testing and then he can do but you could have the time you're done. That's actually not not enough to worship. Though. No but the nice thing is, is that. So I got to eat a whole bunch of food felt like crap and then woke up, you know six hours later there's nothing like having a bunch of fried cheese Kurds at nine thirty at night. Jeez Oh, boy right after you just had. Some follow cake and defied oreos. Jordi. Do the man with the most energy in the world the young man with just bounces off the walls. How do you do on a car for three hours? How many times did you watch cars on an IPAD in the car see? There it is. Not Cars. Cars new. We watched Winnie the Pooh and frozen Pu two. Wow. Two separate movies to try to keep him. Yep. Yep. It really hours. It was It was an excuse something. And I was saying to myself. I was like man, why did that? Why did I do it this way to? Eight, these deep fried orioles and then cheese Kurds, and then I thought. Wait. If the State Fair was hoping, this is exactly when I. Don't accent beer judy walking around yeah. You have a beer two as well. So. Oh. Well, not out. That was good. It was worth it did it done? Eloy Jimenez into. The Mess He looked so awkward. The Nets help I can't get out like a dolphin that gets stuck in a tuna nettie idiot life alert somebody come cut eloy. Jimenez out of the Nets and freedom. That's. All all the way down. Lastly people have said, why have why didn't they take the nets down there off? No fans 'cause they're up and it's just it would be more work just leave him there. The, my railing against the nets from last summer is why the country is in the state it's in right now we have adopted a let's put up a net society because Oh, my God there can never be any harm to anybody. Let's take excessive measures that ruined the experience of a baseball game or life. So he can save one life we can save one not una forehead from a stray foul ball very symbolic. There's a lot of parallels there. Hey, all I care about is that the brewers one last night Yelich came back now we had the inside the park home run had the most money slide. Yeah. Into home that they reviewed and our old friend the odds Bonnie appealed to the video replay and it was really close but nope, nope. nope. nope. nope. nope. NOPE NOPE nope. Didn't get him. Do. Am I the only one that considers a granddaughter now to be Jack Park men from Major League to when you go your, he goes to. I must confess I can't speak major league. I haven't seen all of Wyatt. Why Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's a glaring omission that might take the number one spot. In your glaring omissions glaring omissions. Yeah. I. Just I know of it I've seen snippets. I've never sat down start to finish. Somehow he missed along the way course a bit more of a bull, Durham Guy Than Major League but yeah, they came out. And Major. League to I gotta be able to quote Major League to now is well I. I'm trying to see the it was the catcher. Yes I know exactly who you're talking about and. Had them reading. Magazines. The hated catcher that went from the Indians, he was the big. Then, they traded him. Okay. To the Yankees, I believe in the movie. Yeah, and then he comes back and you know you hate him. So that's where I feel that is yes, Grande now. The Nice thing is, is that we kinda hated him before we got him to. Yeah. So it's kind of like a hate sandwich. Eight sandwich hated him on the dodgers? No. Hate him on the socks. Hate Sandwich because the hate would be the two pieces of bread. So it's inside the Bitter Mustard. Sue saying that then it would be a love sandwich that won't let us bitter mustard. What's what's in that kind of hate in the middle though because he he bookended, we hated him with the dodgers he came to us and now heats with. Guns. So what's in the mid? What's between the bonds Monte Grande all. Art. Isn't hate sandwich. A Good Friday. The bustle that's box. Cutters the bucks one does anybody have any? F ING clue about how coaches are using their rosters. During this bubble restart forget the playoffs. The playoffs should make more sense. But Bud, for no reason, doesn't play any of the stars including Janas in Middleton for the entire second-half against the nets two nights ago. Last night Butler and drug it's out with sprained ankles probably legit. But okay whatever Butler was for sure legit because I was a second game. Okay. Okay. there's no idea about usage of players and like every NBA game, every team can make a run SPOELSTRA said last I look it's not like we were up forty they were up twenty three I believe at one point. Yeah. So teams do make runs. In this case, the bucks had like sixteen three run to get back into it in the third and then a twenty nothing run in the fourth quarter to help bring home the Bacon. You've gotTA. Love it. I just gotTa feel relaxed like, okay. It's a way now and we can just exile not that there was really ever a doubt but. Don't want to let it linger. That's all you don't. WanNa. Let to drag on so well, and it was also crazy when you see stat. So yeah Jaanus in Middleton. going. On, thirty one shots making sixty six getting sixty six points sure. School in thirteen, seventeen and middleton nine, fourteen young. Yeah and they're not. Yes stat of the day already. do you want it? There's a stat of the day from the game. Ruined better. Not, no. Sir Not. Get. Whatever everybody panic. Dad. Though Laid out of in yesterday's game versus the heat the bucks trailed by twenty three points and went onto win by fourteen.

But still he didn't mean to do it, and now you're I'm so sorry dea really think the Oakland as bench coach is a closet Nazi at it's now just coming out. Yeah he finally waited for this.

Billy is in the house young man what's going on they save yesterday was a great day for sports I the bus be the Miami Heat, and they are now the number one team in the world. Looks like we're going to lose again but then they remember that they were the bucks and started playing super good. Then last night, the burs played baseball and crushing out guy hit which he turned into a home run when he used his super speed, also the packers said, no, one can watch the first football games in person and people are also playing golf and other teams. I guess playing sports as well. But no one really cares because the burs one and the bucks are the number one team. Yeah. Back to you, I like tunnels. Excited I'm Kinda shy but multi excited. We'll get to that lambeau news new just a bad time for pose. He's in with headlines. Nozaki, what eighteen left address looking to take the here's ever said across the line flying hitting the breaks to the Point Miller, open stores and trick.

Well the bucks were down twenty three in the second quarter yesterday before turning things around in beating Miami one, thirty, one sixteen to clinch the top seed in the eastern conference playoffs after failing to do so in their previous two games. Here's coach Mike Putin Holzer You'd Never Guess Coaching an NBA game on August six. So you know pretty unique times to to win a game. And more importantly to have the best record in the Eastern Conference you know is is a to our players and what they've done every night and how they brought it. Very proud of them. You know we have a lot more work to do but certainly to recognize the work of our team be smart to do that or wise to do that. It was at thirty seven point swing between the second quarter in the end of the game, which included a twenty to nothing fourth quarter run with about five minutes to play honest onto compo- and Chris Middleton both scored thirty three, the boxer, fifty, five and fourteen and face Dallas tomorrow night at seven thirty in the midst of a three for thirty four slump. Christian Yelich got a mental health day Wednesday and then return to the lineup last night for the brewers series finale with the white. SOx. Illitch in the air left field got some Kerry. But admit is always make the play and it's a fair ball now is in the NAP. Yell. Around second on his way to third. And he's GonNa try to score here comes through. Their Ryan Anderson on. Fox Sports Wisconsin Yelich also walked for time scored three runs in the walkies eight three victory in Chicago. Certainly a good night for the brewers best player who caught a break when Eloy Jimenez. Ball left and got stuck in the protective net by the stands with allowed Yelich to round the basis for a second homer the year. Run Baseball history. Yeah I needed that one. It's been an absolute zoo. Awful all year. So you have some positivity to smile about something a nice much. Also, said, it was nice to differentiate between balls and strikes.

Games September twentieth against Detroit and Monday night. October fifth against Atlanta Murphy. Says circumstances have changed in safety as their biggest concern coach Matt Leflore says it'll be a major challenge for his players I think that definitely can weigh in it. Something that none of us have really experienced at this level, guys are going to really have to dig deep and find that energy because a lot of players feed off the fans and there's certain stadiums that you walk into in this league, and it is definitely there's a home field advantage hackers third home game isn't until November first against Minnesota meanwhile floor. says.

Coming up what's trending brought to you by Best Electric Josh what you've got, we gotta talk about this hundred person brawl at an Anaheim hotel. Was On is how lean canceled to why not cancel everything don't say that canceled it all from now until the time also suddenly everybody cares about. Georgia.

That's what best electric will do for you and all of your electrical needs give them a call today at four, one, four, seven, two, seven, eighty, seven, seventy or visit them online at best elect dot com best electric connect with the best. Zave. There was an incident at a hotel in Anaheim California and incident you say, yeah. What do you mean by and incident? Let's just say there was a brawl in volving mom. Who Hundred Oh six hundred. Okay. So in other words as Kramer would said. That, there was an. Incident. Okay. Talk to me. Okay. So Four officers arrived at the hotel after they were called because of. The need any more than. So officers, they'll just forty. Start with four to find forty people fighting in a hotel parking lot. Go. Okay so they're outside at least backup please. Can we please get back and I just put the Bat Signal UK. Help. then. They go in to find that there are more people fighting in the lobby of the hotel God. As they make their way through the lobby out to the pool. Sorry I. Need to get some Carl Douglas. then. They get to the pool to see even more people say. But the good news is. When they got to the pool, they found the source of the fighting. Okay. How do you separate who's on? WHO's yeah right? because. The bloods and crips they've or is it Just. Like you know what is punching somebody GonNa Find Seventy two point. Eight. Apparently. Some kids that were playing at the pool on those meddling kids and they were just you know. It says at one boy was pushed to push his cousin into the pool eleven. And that that boy happened to fall on some girls that were playing in the pool. Is Well, the girls did not take that apology now. Were they were they were they fighting in a socially distancing manner? DID THEY HAVE MEL on? Did they? Know. All right. So what will get more attention today this story or the picture that came out of a Georgia high school showing a crowded hallway and therefore. Masks because that's now suddenly everybody cares about Georgia every pundit, every elitist from the upper northeast corridor. tut-tutting Georgia apparently, the school has discipline some of the students for using their cell phones and sharing the pictures on social media, which is only enraged the elite from New York and other places even further saying I can't believe you're getting him in trouble they like no, we're not gonNa have pictures taken from inside the school and have the students start this whereabouts social distancing we're not wearing masks. Even. Bomani Jones amongst others chiming in on this because he is a school and mask expert in addition to be in Bomani Jones. It's so predictable and so annoying but there we are. So the whole country cares about one high school in Georgia and their social distancing does anyone care that there was one hundred person brawl in Anaheim with no social distancing now he's looking to the whole brawl wasn't just kids right? So it started with. And then the adults started punching each other. Based on the kids. When I ever got into an argument with another kid. As a kid. It was always my fault. My my parents was my mom or dad was mere parents. Get over here. You get over here. It was always you're so sorry, sir, I'm sorry about that I'm sorry but no sorry, my kids at. Right now apparently, it's very, what's your kid doing I kid? All right. Let's say you're in the middle of that hundred person melee and you want to go give somebody a three piece a three piece with fries. How would you go about given some random person a three piece in one hundred person brawl. Elbow need fist fist fist face face got what what would your three piece Combo with with fries be like that's that's tough because Mike, I use my weight. So might my Go-to is always to just try to get him to the ground, push them over and then bellyflop them right. Maybe do like a Superman Punch and then just get him to the ground. That's people can't we all just get along? Dateline Scoundrels H. B. O. is going to release a documentary. On Craig Carton. Issues SAG radio host who went to prison for three and a half years for fraud. It's called wild card the downfall of radio loud mouth. It's airing October seven.

He's gotta get his radio show back you want. FRANCESA's you know no longer doing that one hour a day off. Being famous is more important than being a good employee and not committing crimes and being on time for work and going along with whatever dumping your program director says you should do my advice for kids who want to get into this business get in and start doing everything opposite be a bad boy a shock jock break the rules get in trouble become famous. Dan and then then maybe try not to go to jail. But if you do get out of jail and get probably even bigger contract at a documentary. Josh what's trending what's trending?

The marlins are six in one despite having had the biggest outbreak so far this season despite not having played a home game yet, and despite having to ship in eighteen new guys as part of their expanded roster, and there are other eighteen guys had to take a thirty hour bus. Back to Miami as punishment. Baseball is betty strange game sometimes. Absolute classic so. It just goes to show. It's gotta be a wild season. You're not gonNA know what's what or who we know the Yankees are really good. As hats that they are. That check swing that one they're just they're. They're hitting bombs left and right to set a new franchise record for most consecutive games with home run at like eleven. Bill Yankee. Ben cannot bill Yankees but again, another day. No new big outbreaks, baseball did implement strect new. Protocols. The. The eating one is the best one that you read all those. No talking while eating and if you yeah, because they're going, they're supposed to provide a room like a large room where you can be socially distance and get your food. You're not supposed to talk to anybody else, and if you have to sit by somebody, you're supposed to sit back to back. Yeah. Good. Don't face. You're good to go also Tony. And His Right, and this all came upon the marlins because they were bad boys in Atlanta boys back. They went out to clubs. They went to cozy destiny. They went to the sweet Lou Chicken Wings at Magic City. And next thing you know they come home with the Rona so. I don't I don't feel bad for these ball players who are going to have to go through all this brought it on yourself. But no new outbreaks yesterday and the season chugs on and baseball announced a couple of they announced a seven game series later in the year in September early September between the. MARLINS and the Phillies to make up for their knicks. Games. A seven game series that includes two seven inning doubleheaders. So if you think that baseball's not committed a jam this season through one way or another year on. And I Love it I. Love it because there is a lot of people of just a couple of days ago when this week started. Josh. Dad were loudly saying, this is all going to end. Then it sits over seasons got to cancelled right? Oh. Yeah. While the birds on a five game series. With the cardinals coming up September fourteen, fifteen sixteen. So. doubleheader on Monday the fourteenth, a single game on the fifteenth doubleheader on the sixteenth. And then they'll have a four game series at the end of the month with a double header on Friday single game Saturday Sunday and I love it baseball said. All right. Well, we're GONNA have jamming a lot of games. What do I tell you what doubleheaders but seven innings can we do that? Yeah. Okay. Done boom. Hey can we play home games and other teams parks? Yeah. Sure. Done boom. Got It. Hey can we start the tenth inning with a runner on second? Yeah. Sure. Why not stopping us done boom got it. Can we start using wiffle balls and bats? Yet don shirt boom got it. Whatever to get the season end I love that commitment like look were not going to quit quitting would be the scarlet hue stitched to the Jersey of baseball forever and ever and ever. And I have no doubt that football is going to play I'm dismayed though at the continued retreat when it comes to fans. I just it just makes me so deflated and the worst thing was yesterday get her you saw this the mayor of Augusta Joe. Heard said that he does not expect there to be patrons at the masters. And the masters didn't say one way or the other they gave a very generic statement very generic statement about Blah Blah health officials blah guidance, Blah Blah we'll see etc etc.. But, it's just crazy to think that you couldn't allow in three thousand fans at the masters in fricken November mess. The big thing about the masters is the roars on the back nine on Sino. I mean look I'm a golf nerd like you are getter. I watched some of the PGA. I'm sort of into it. I'm not into it like I would be into it though if there was actual fans, I'm just not. It to me this is watching this. On TV, it's a longer thicker rough version of the Saint Jude Classic the field is great as always is for this event it's the strongest field of all the majors. And it looks like we're going to have some pretty good golf but it's it's not the same not for me at least. So having said that pivot. Pivot. pitted. Bryson the. Shampoos driver. snapped. That's not technically a pivot were on golf so we'll stand golf with this. Bryson Shambo, snap the head office driver by accident. Yes. While he was leaning on the club to bend over and pick up his t correct. To Shambo has added more than twenty yards to his tee shirts and almost fifty pounds to his frame. After extensive weight gaining and fitness program swung violently at the drive seemingly without issues and he was surprised to see the club come apart just by leaning on it, he was allowed to replace the club. because he did not break it in anger yes. The local rule. But what do you need a local? What? They. Said on the air multiple times and said, it was a local rule, so they must have had. I think it's a little different because. It didn't really break in the course of a swing. And I think that's the technical rule for the. USDA. If you're golf club breaks during a swing, you're allowed to replace it correct. In any round of golf including a tournament round as long as you don't unduly delay place. So in other words, correct if you're in a local tournament Josh and you break your driver swinging at it. Like you. Happy Gilmore. You missed the ball year ball on the shaft and it snaps yeah you can't then say hold on, go get in your car and then go drive to Dick's sporting goods and get a new new driver and say hold on hold on. I'll be right back and forty five minutes later with your group sitting there waiting on the t you can't do that. You cannot unduly delay, but at a pro tournament like this, you know he descends his minion in the trailer in the in the fitting trailer. To go down. There once the tournament starts whatever it nerd listened to the Gulf new here listen to the fitting newest. Where do you get the shaft then from? Longer. Back up in his locker really do all these guys have backup. Sure drivers in their locker for sure or was it just a backup shaft? It was just a backup shaft, but they for sure keep an extra driver. Without question I'd have. I'd have Josh Out of a backup driver full ready to go not just a chef. Yeah. To like like my starting driver would be named Brett, Farve, and my backup driver would be TJ rudely or something. You don't want to a really, hey rube. We get in the game there. You're the guy. Now the thing is you don't want to let people know that you have a backup driver too early because then people are GonNa think that you're done with the driver you're currently using and that's going to just start this whole big thing they'll be like, did you go to the backup driver? How much did you spend on that backup drawback? What's wrong with the driver you use a now looks like it's working just. Salary tap. One shot the greatest round of my life with this old driver. Why would we ever go away from it? This was going great and you tried participate salary cap you. Sign up quarterbacks winter tickets. No we weren't timeline was talking about because he named his driver Farve and TJ Rubio was back those incidents we're talking about. This golf. Golf here. Anyway we got a good flow on there. We did just got right in the middle of it. Yeah. What does show that? Get her set picks and rebound. That's what you do right now let me Josh run the offense here. Honesty's Middleton. You. Just, be pat. Cox. It's He's now he's really checked out. Laptops literally feet away from the microphone. He's he's playing angry birds. and. Nobody plays angry bird. Planned flight control. Okay So here we are. Awkward now. Anyway, he hears loud to replace the club because he didn't break it. Okay but question then. What's the situation when you? Can't. Replace it like if you like what about if he would've snapped bracket anger, then you can't replace. So even if he had a backup because he didn't do it during a swing. Yes. Right. That's the rolling. Yeah. What about if he's slammed down in the bag really hard. And then you can't replace it. I was just putting it away. Now. No are get her get your sweats off your back in the game. All right. There go Harry comes. Off Everyone, Eric, getter, lay if you if you step on your driver. Or if your buddy runs it over with his golf cart. You're allowed to replace it, right? Yes. And you're allowed to punch your buddy in the face for running over your driver in a casual round of golf. What about if it slips because grips were worn? I'm sorry. Sir. I. Should have noticed that I'll take care of that. And that's not careful. See at the table, sign a card. Brooks Koepka. Do we have the audio from? Brooks Koepka on Jambo? Yeah. There's to sound bytes so the two. Did a thing like they they were talking to players like what do you eat for breakfast in a typical day? And Famous de shambles eating all this food now right to get to bulk up. So they're asking all this players and this was. Kept his answer. Wine protein shakes. Six Five. Nine protein shakes and he starts laughing. That is good. No laying up noling up had this tweet Kepco winning majors in bulk and going out of his way to troll major list price into Shambo is a truly admirable level of pettiness. They said making birds and crushing nerds we don't deserve brooks. Oh, my God, and then they ask they get birds and crushing nerve that ends up on a shirt or A. Will have it in a minute for sure will. So then they asked the birds crushing or after the roundabout is Rhonda, how he played and he said this today. Survey online good and there's no reason to. Be Scientific with all the. Numbers. Making Fun of the scientist. Okay. One of the two guys got into a fistfight parking lot would that not be the greatest thing ever? Would that not put a charge into the PGA tour? I. Think it's something to really talk about it. Then you'll fight my money's brooks. Now. Let's say that Bryson would fight unfair he would like scratch and kick. A nerd he doesn't know how to night hold on Kapka knows how to fight if kept Kaz swings and breaks his driver. Over Bryson's. Head. No Okay Anyway. To. Shambo. Did shoot to under. So he's lurking how about a Kepco to Shambo final. On Sunday. And Tiger the second last group I'll take it. Okay. There you go. Wrap it up. Very good. I professor is going to be end before the hour is out. What else is shaking out there we need to talk about. Training camps are going on, but we're not CNA anything other than just little glimpses of guys in their jerseys with no pads throwing the football.

Social and socially responsible activities on tap of the weekend. Zach in the two, six two I wasn't robbing the ATM. I was just reverse engineering to see how secure they. Really. except. When it comes to robbing a bank. Josh. GimMe the story here about whether or not robbing a bank is actually a crime or just a ha ha I'm joking around. I'm going to regret this but I'm Gonna I'm GonNa let this one. Go. Ahead, get a couple of Youtube. Guys twin brothers decided to they're they're known for their pranks in Irvine California and. Yeah, they got charged with a felony false imprisonment misdemeanor count of false reporting an emergency. For. Faking videotaping and robbing a bank. So they fake Yup videotaped it. They masqueraded as bank robbers, and that prompted calls to the Irvine Police Department two, thirty PM on October Fifteenth. The twins dressed in black with schoon asks and carried duffle bags stuffed with cash masters, bank robbers according to cash I did it says with cash. Cash. I Bet with camera operator. As fake, what you're walking out of the bank with the bags in the mass, they called for an Uber Ride but the driver refused service. A witness leaving the pair had robbed the bank and we're carjack an uber driver called police. Responding officers ordered the driver out at gunpoint. But when the eventually sorted it all out, the brothers were let go with a warning. But then her four hours later, they did the same thing on campus at UC Irvine, which prompted emergency calls again. Okay. Yeah Idiots. So, they have a court date has not been scheduled and it's It's not known if the brothers have legal representation but how many clicks did they get? Exactly? That's that's your. So dead on right there josh that's what try. That's what's driving society right now. That kind of stuff. Give me a break. Why don't they? Just one of these be a part of one hundred person fight right up the road now. The other bank robbery store from yet. Okay. So then it's funny that you brought that up because I saw a story of. Of. A. Guy who? Robbed, a bank. You broke in the bank closed okay and this was He'd already. Attempted to rob a bank and was caught and he was out on probation or Another, bank. Closed all he did according to the security cameras came in looked around grab the hand sanitizer. And left. Really I. So many questions I. Okay. Why a bank if you're gonNA take some hand sanitizer Why not go business with I don't know a few less cameras. Than than a bank. Yeah you know I, the famous criminal Willie Sutton was once asked, why do you Rob Banks? You know what his answer was. Because they have all the money is. Sensory. That's where all the money is. That's why I rob banks, and if that's what you do you gotTa. Keep doing it until you get caught. Yeah and again and again and again. Here's a headline that I don't think we need to read the story. Okay. Guacamole maker explodes killing former Mayor Whoa injuring two others. What did you say? Do you mean we don't need Absolutely. Moley maker explodes killing former mayor injuring two others. I already have questions is the guacamole maker, a kitchen appliance or an actual person making Guacamole, right? A high pressure food processor has to make guacamole exploded in upstate New York on Wednesday morning, killing a former mayor in injuring two others. The former mayor was sillier mayor Joseph Cap. He died of injuries from the blasts that occurred shortly after seven am at innovative test solutions in Schenectady. That's where my dad's from skunk a New York. The fail explosion occurred as the food processor was undergoing tests to assess its viability for manufacturing. Of Guacamole Holy Guacamole. JEEZ LOUISE WHY? Why does it he? Why from Guacamole? high-speed Guacamole in the eyeball. He two much guacamole. No is it possible? US Making Guacamole skews rushed to the hospital where they were picking Guacamole out of his hair and Izhak. It's frantically but we're unable to save. Chips. Exactly. We're working as hard as we can't. Sir. Thank you heating Guacamole to stay call. Come on man that's so inappropriate. Yeah it was funny. He died doing what he loved, which was cooking Guacamole. The former mayor of our fair city. May He rest in peace? May. The. Heavenly angels provide him with all of the Lord's Green Goodness. For years to come. A father. A mayor. And a child of God. He rest in peace. We know ask for a moment of silence. Past chips. Shash. Inappropriate. Paying respects to the mayor. Died Nicole. How did he die? Why my thing cutting out on me that now this pissing me off. Is Really. I don't think we can get back to normal society until Guacamole, deaths are at zero I mean, I, want none exactly zero zero zero. Hey all I can think about before you move on all I can think about is that t pain commercial Where where he says? Mom. That's all he said at the funeral. Hey did you like? Did you see? Central Florida. There in the news this week, a new name for their football stadium the bounce. That is. Saw I love it. I. Love It. That's good. You agree what was it called? They had A. Corporate name of some kind I think OAS. Lind right are quiet. No morial stadium thought to it was spectrum stadium a the bounty called Bounce House. That's way better. Brought to you by Ed's Bounce House on Route fifteen four, zero to. Rent one bounce house get to inflatables free. By two parties, I two parties actuation. We re right exactly. Set up and delivery free every Thursday for three day rentals. Crazy crazy ads bounce, house. Boy really stooped to a new low level tampering with forces. You can't understand we have major corporations sponsoring this event. They got a setup bounce houses absolutely non horse, and they gotta have cheerleaders inside the bounce houses with cameras on them, and hopefully well endowed cheerleaders. So we can see. That matter. Get that I mean in a non sexually objectified way. Of course because about that. But you know a little bit entertainment wouldn't be a bad thing. Yeah. Central Florida Louisville. Three soccer players kicked out of school off the program for their party that led to an outbreak of vid positive test results in cases they apparently had other disciplinary. Black. Marks in their ledger against them. So this is like the Straw. These guys were rogue soccer player that hosted a party that got a bunch of kids. I don't know if they were sick or just positive positive. They didn't really say positive tests. Louisville is cleaning up their own house. Remember it's the same school that hired Rick Pitino Let him sleep have sex with boosters in the back of an Italian restaurant Lonnie laignel booth no. That was confirmed and then pay for her abortion and lane. No this is all documented not allegedly simply US Rick Martinez lawyer. And this is the same school that had an assistant coach. A hooker to help woo recruits on that desert. Yeah that did happen. Louisville. They're like, oh. Yeah. We'd better tighten up. We'd better kick the soccer players out of school. They'll never do this for a star player. If they had Lamar Jackson hosting a party during Kobe times and two thousand people tested positive, they'd look the other way but soccer players, they're easy to kick out of the program and a kick out of school. So. Good for Louisville I. Guess. Oh and this should be fun. DC is planning to make almost two miles of roads. Fifteen mile per hour speed limit zones. Are you kidding me? Fifteen miles an hour as a speed limit like. Just get out and push why don't you just get out and push your car? Two Our That's ridiculous. This is just going to be a way to collect more speed camera revenue because you'll be doing eighteen in a fifteen and you'll feel like time is standing still and they'll snap snap send it in the mail Gimme some money. We'll. The radar detectors even work at that slow rate like say you are going offline. Why? How'd you probably teen in a fifteen? The is two dollars and eighty five cents. But Hey, the Department of Transportation said safety is our priority and driving slowly helps keep everybody. Safe, but if you drive to slow the coronal on you. The morons in government it's just unbelievable. You know there's a point at which you got to say we can't make it any reasonably more safe and the roads have to move the cars have to move. If fifteen is safe or safer. Then five miles an hour would be super save Nick. Let's do that. Then no one move. Right, don't move just put moving sidewalks instead. That'd be right. Don't give any ideas. They'll say, yeah, it's a great. Let's do that five dollars to get out on the. Coming up, the professor will join US weekend. wormholes will find out what he's going to dig into this weekend and then third hour. We'll get more into the bucks clinching the number one seed in the east, who are the real teams to worry about Ben Simmons with his bad knee maybe has taken a sixers out of the worry category if they were ever in the worry categories. So how many teams are really a threat will take a look at that as well. You're listening to the Steve's Eben show right here on the game. They've got what you're looking for. It's time for KABC's life one. Oh, one future. You really seems to care. About what I have? An advanced course in survival. Strings me calm that. No. You can't play with joy it on as many levels I do. Laugh. The colors. Badly now. Here's your professor. Man of many talents disciplines interests. He is Kevin Brandt afternoon drive right here on the game good morning professor also. Part time professor part time professor full-time percent. That's Marquette. University on. Marketing, viral marketing, content, ideation copywriting, and more what Edward Call, you Turn part-time. Now I'm I'm a part time I'm a part timer. Yeah. joanie classes under. Twenty said junk instructor. Okay. Cool twenty. Plan for this falls course. Yeah. I got to rewrite the whole course. I got a rewrite at all, which I'm in the middle of doing it's a total pain because why we don't. We don't know if it's going to be hybrid or. Right. Because kids have the they have the option of opting out and going fully online. So it'd be like if one kid does it, I'm teaching two classes. So. Well. Have you painted they're paying double for that? I'm sure they are. Yeah. I I haven't really liked through holiday yet but yeah. Hey you know who's taking in the shorts right now as big CRAYON. Big Crawl taking it in the shorts. Yes. School supply spending. has been crushed this year. So. Your trapper keepers, your Dukes of Hazzard lunchboxes, your corduroy pants, all the stuff that parents usually spend on in late. July. Early August. It's dropped off a cliff as you would expect, right? Yeah. So you you had a lunch box you had the Dukes of Hazzard I didn't have a lunchbox we grew up poor. We had bags we never got the metal box. Never had the experience in the joy of a custom lunchbox. Now, now, my in my college roommate had one you know. So, your family. Said lunchbox when you were. Now we didn't. You just chose not to waste money on A. lunchbox. Very high come from very humble beginnings and. Right. Now, I'm living in humble endings. They're all there was no school. There is no lunchboxes. Anna Go. They didn't have to thing. Yeah. Let me let me go around the Horn Josh. Did you ever have lunch box grown up and what was on I had a lunchbox, but it wasn't like a cool one like A. Blue. Plain plain blue and it wasn't metal it was. Like A. We call those Mash Cooler get. Her had a richie rich lunchbox because then most mirrored his up. Pattinson actually I believe I had scooby Doo. A. Tonight Star. Wars. Of course you did I by the entire CAST DUKES has head. I. Dukes of Hazzard I had battle Star FM GALACTICO or the Little Richard. Hatch a little Richard ADDS Catherine Bach. Combo Pat Little John Schneider. -SCONSIN legend Tom will bet that's right from appleton. Anyway. So sales of back to school supplies you're not at trapper keepers, pro tractors, crayons is anyone use a protracted anymore? Now. You're we needed it for Tucker's math last year in second grade you. Did you have you had his he got into division and stuff like that. where he the way they do math now it's like insane Tartar. Give me started on common core math. It's like, okay. You got all these things over on one side and. It's like no here. This is how they taught long division when I was there where you had the. It's Kinda like it was like a stubborn, right. So you had the thing over the box and then you had to go do stuff a little bit down the side and my mom just taught me the old way where he just go. Lineup one across put the number underneath and them you just you know there's none of the other crap like number addition is the worst like two digit like if you have twenty plus thirty, five safer example, you're taking twenty you make that that's two tens that's twenty s and thirty. And thirty five is three ten and five ones and you and you bundle the ten together and you bundle the wants to guesses and you add them up no wonder no wonder I can't get changed. Here's what happened. Here's what happened Oh. Okay. This is one that happened to be the other day in because his shortage and coins. So I go into a speedway, not a quick trip into a speedway and I get a bunch of. Steak I got a couple of diet dues or whatever, and it comes up to. Four. Dollars and thirteen cents. I give the guy five, but it's like they had a sign which I didn't see. It says, please pay an exact. Shortage on coin pain exact money or use a debit card I give them a five. He freezes like a deer in the headlights. He doesn't know what to do because he can't give change Yup and then that. So he's just going what do I do what I do call the manager. Now what would you do in that situation? What would you do in that situation if I were you if we were, you know if you were the kid, it's thirteen cents a he owes me eighty seven cents where the change what do you do? And there's people lining up behind I would just give buck back. Thank you. That's what you should do. You figure it out later off the guy behind me Sir that comes out of my end at the end of the day they can afford that the guy behind me says. Can't you read the sign and? Taking the no. Yes, he did. I. Just kind of looked at him and was like I was on the way to the golf course and I was just about ready to engage. He dead he wanted to jump ugly with you once again, just because I'm I'm so feeble as remembering this, why do we have a coin shortage again? I cusi corona that's all I know no I need a better explanation. That's the only thing I know is is because of the virus we have no coins that's live not hurt. I believe you're the famer here. Go ahead. Why Because of people not going to as many stores, there's not as much circulation. So they're not getting as many coins back when they get Robinhood Coin Big Robin Hood, coin, Bank bags at home are they're walking around with you know Google in their yard even if people aren't going as much, the overall volume should just be lower. There should still be enough coins in the stores. So unless people are actively keeping them in their homes or in their change cups so according to the guy fin where it mister, Fenner runs the mid says the meant has slowed production of coins because of the crowd size plus fewer people have been using at places like vending machines, laundromats and car washes. Okay like that. That seems to make sense. So short quarters. I blame Math Mass Florida. Yeah. Because you're doing all the groups at tens and fives and five dimes, it's all because of new Matt that's why we're out of coins which were onto something which made me think of the scene I. Don't know if you've seen incredible to now and I'm not going to continue. Okay. What are you talking about? I WanNa talk to you about the exploded. was. Not the most spectacular explosion ever caught on film in Beirut Horrible Chelsea, major loss of life credible damage but as far as disaster porn goes. Right there that was right there, and then when when we heard about what happened the afternoon, we're getting rid of the show and we heard about it, and then the initial thought was it was some sort of a rocket attack or what have you then I saw the video and I was like man that's one hell of a rocket if it does your ad that I, mean, that's someone's got some kick ass weaponry. If it's doing that because you've seen more explosions, it was nothing like that and then it came out that. It was a wasn't a fireworks factory. Well, then was firing next factory next to a huge store of ammonium nitrate. Fertilizer a with the same stuff timothy McVeigh used. Right and apparently, they don't really take care of the storage of it. And just had it lying around in one huge warehouse and whoops they had a fireworks factory, right? Next door. You'd think if you're going to get a modem nitrate in one place, you'd do it next to pillow factory or something would be the opposite of fireworks. Put it next to that lettuce stand. Yes York. Footing plant. Yeah we're making here. That is not GonNa light the ammonium nitrate on fire. Yeah I talked to a guy that. Guy Emailed me who's listener and he's actually out in Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada right now he's an ordinance officer in the Air Force. So in other words, he said this is all I've done for twenty years is sizing up how much explosive do we need to knock down this building? And he sat and GIG. Wow. Yeah. What how? Leave. He. Yeah he he explained it in terms of the the M. K. Eighty, two bomb, which is the thousand pound bomb which a beef, the beef fifty two can belch out something like eighty. Mark Eighty two bombs just boone. You know when you see the videos of the be fifty, two carpet bombing someone or something. A thousand or eighty of those at one thousand pounds a piece he said the explosive force of the Beirut blast would have required something like four thousand sorties of beef fifty, two's full of those bombs. As. They believed that the the the load of that explosion was about fifteen percent of the little boy bomb dropped on Nagasaki Holy. War to which by the way we had an anniversary for yesterday professor. Yes. The usual people came out and said, the US still hasn't apologized for it. And some of us are like, and why would we we were at war? Okay. Yeah. It was called a war. Yeah, anyway. have you ever been to That's kind of weird and but why do you have that much? What ammonites. No Modem nitrate one place some. Nitrogen I think I read somewhere they had. It. Yes, they seized some of it from Russian ship. This is where terrorists and Hezbollah like to go for their role materials for bonds Hank Yeah then. Enough. Safety. Protocols. Oh. One more the SS Jarrett's don't right. You ever hear the SS John Burke. World War Two. Yeah Yeah Okay I'm GonNa send another name. I can't remember the backstory put any digger. amunition ship in World War, two and it was caught on video. Exploding, and it's probably even better of a video of an explosion a kamikaze hit this ammunition ship in World War Two on the ocean and it went. There's no sound because he was an old eight millimeter film that got it. But it's one of the best explosions ever caught on. Moving pictures. So so what's your weekend wormhole for the weekend professor Larry Lawton? He's a guy that's a ex-con and he tells you he's got a whole youtube channel about what to do in prison. Here you go get her play this. Case and if He tells you that this comes from the ten things you need imprison. This is a suitcase, just take a listen.

Wakes you really really love Brantley Gilbert. Don't you? Post.

So it gets me it just. Before, me answer the phone then I know it's radio time. Do. You have different ringtone set for different phone numbers such as. I do lawyer Radio Host Okay and can you disclose that I'm curious? No some of them I cannot do that because I would. I would probably lose the only two friends I have because I don't really need that many ringtones 'cause I don't have that many people I associate with so hard. Here's here's the one I my sources have sources have revealed. This is the one from from wags his wife. I'll you like I'd better pick this one up I could be a trouble. Why are you out?

You've known him for a longtime avenue. I've known him for many many years and it's Kinda Nice because. You know it's a it's a he was a Germantown guy with me as well and and it seems like as far apart as you get depending on the time, you always come back and and I always say that about kids in guys and people and parents and people from the Midwest Midwest values are strange and I was very fortunate to obviously play baseball I told them for many years but you move all kinds of people from all parts of. This country and the West Coast East Coast Down South and when people say Midwest people are very special. They really are because it's our upbringing. It's their whole overall makeup that make the mid Western people who they are and it's something special. So coming back after so many years and settling back down, it's it's easy to regroup with your with your friends and family members that you've been away from. So long here it's just it's a pretty good time. So. If you need some help on that front, definitely call wealth advisers to him and he'll get you on the right track. So last night Christian Yelich inside the park home run Geo was the guy on the mound what had happened. What do you do if you're a pitcher rags and you're sitting there your grind and you're trying to throw the most best pitches you can't get the hell out of the inning and a play like that happens and you're standing on the mound, how do you hide your frustration as a pitcher when that happens? Well as soon as I see my outfielder trying to be Superman. I run out to the outfield's I tried to grab the ball you know. It's like a little thing that you just jumping up and down trying to yell in trying to get something going. But but if that net wasn't there wags, he would have fallen into the stands because there have been known to catch. True. But the net made it look stupider. He made him look more inept just out there flopping around like a fish on a boat deck. ME It is it's just a lost cause. You're just standing there. It happens a lot I remember when we used to see balls and we were talking in different stadiums with different configurations in the Outfield, like the ball hits a crevice or crack or a screw or even like at fenway if it hits a sign and it balances and you're standing on the mound and you see all of your outfielders. Way And you see the puck ricocheted the other way down the warning track, and sometimes when it gets that warning, track it like roles for miles and you're like, this is not gonna be a good day for me. Yeah. meanwhile, Yala chapter the day off has a nice day. How do you think that works or what's the theory behind it just reset the brain give your body a day off. Yeah I i. think that's what it is. He he realizes we is and what he has to do, he knows he has to put this team on his back a sixty game sprint knows he has to. Very. Surprised at how you how he did it though he took swing that that that loopy swing and that was fine but he also took I believe for walks. Yes a slump. The biggest thing the biggest thing is problem is he's not seeing the ball and and he didn't come out and say that nor has it been implied by any of the coaching staff or anything. But what a guy takes four walks and he's just looking at pitches we had talked before remember when he was three of them, we were saying guys need reps number we're talking I did regardless. Of the sport you need wraps, you need repetitions you need you need to see things and maybe this was a situation where he just came out and just said, you know what? I'm not swinging the Bat I'm GonNa Watch the baseball because I haven't been seeing it and I have seen other players do that I played with a guy named Manny Ramirez Manny Ramirez actually say who who is this guy he coming into who is this guy? Who is this guy? Who who who is this guy I don't know and he'd go up there and he literally takes the first four pitches. He wouldn't even swing the bat relates. act. He'd sacrifice one at bat so that he could come back and bite you in the ass the next three at bats. Wow he would just go up there and take take take to get a read on. Gaza. I've seen that and I've seen that I hate to point Manny Ramirez out is the only one but I have seen other players that they do that if you don't know a kid who gets called up and there's not enough video on them. You. Don't lately a lot of kids have been getting called up from double a not necessarily triple a. you're seeing a lot of you know high prospects getting called up, and there's there's very limited footage or even scouting report on guys will come up there especially, and that's the importance of like a low. Renzo Cain Lorenzo Cain was at the top of the order and I'm not saying every pitcher that they face they've never seen before but he gives that first batters job is to put the ball in play get on Bass and Sea Pitches and you want to expose that pitcher. What does he have today? Does he have his plus fastball? Does he have his nasty breaking ball and you can see how pitchers react on that first hitter where they go to where they're comfortable you know and that's and that's something. So yeah when you bring up guys that you haven't seen or you don't know much about title, sit there and watch it and that's what Christian. Yelich did. He took four walks he's trying to pick up he might not be seeing the ball very well. I like it though the way to start hitting is the start walking first, and then the hits will probably come after that. So knock on wood that he's on track. used. See what their little white square feels like when you get down the line and Exactly meanwhile, they're. They're tracking a day. People are noticing that hater is throwing a more sliders as a percentage of Calvi writing for brewers dot. COM says, it's too early to draw conclusions, but it looks like hater is becoming more multi dimensional and he's got the numbers so far that show more sliders. What do you make of this? I just don't believe arm strength is there. If you watch that game his last outing when he got to save, you gotta you on a fastball what ninety four miles an hour he got grondahl to fly out to left field chased a high fastball ninety, four miles an hour. Gesture can't win you nobody can really win down the middle of the zone ninety to ninety four. I give the credit to that calling atoms right I. WE talked about it earlier yesterday to is well. I get the credit to many. Many opinions sat behind that plate and he saw. Him As sitting on that on-deck circle as the third hole hitter and he saw guys Miss Vassals Mohan Josh. Hitters he's GonNa. Come Heat. He's been throwing fastballs his whole career. That's what he does. Imminence was just timing timing timing of in many Pena's sought many called three straight sliders and you can say whatever you want and how that how that sequence took place that sequence took place because of Manny Pini me. He sought, I mean he saw him three sliders, Jimenez swings over all three of those pitches he's done and and that's where Mannie Pena becomes a great catcher Grondahl ofensive players are good. But when you're manning a pitching staff a starting rotation and bullpen, you need a very, very smart hardheaded good witted catcher behind the plate. Believe me I know I didn't have many of them because I still. Catcher when you've got a good catcher, it makes things easy and many saw that and that's why him and has got three straight slider. So so when many calls three straight sliders does hate her know why that is without having a discussion off in my opinion. No. Which is fine where he's a little bit like nuclear loose like why is it called? slider man heats my thing. I. Want to bring it. Okay. slider again. Fine where. This guy's timing. You WanNA throw them off. WANT TO JAM radar here. But does it Strikes him out gives hated the to injustice. Three sliders on. was. Really. Good guy goes back. He thinks he's great. He forgets about the ninety four mile an hour fastball and it's not ninety eight and now throws a good slider. So that's what you gotTa do you gotTa get in People's heads and man you do it but make no clue just he's out assigned through it doesn't hate her need that second pitch though. Oh. Yeah. Absolutely and we and we saw that last year remember when he started. The year before when he was dominating moon, he was backing member. He would go on Jayjay and then Corey and eighteen run that was perfect. He started in reverse and we've always talked about this before you know everybody's talking through a strike one he throwing so hard and so deceptive he reversed it. He started out of his own guys. We're trying to attack that fastball and then he'd finished guys off in the zone where. Last year he started throwing strike one I believe seven out of those twelve or whatever home runs he gave up we're close to if not first pitch second pitch and if it was the second that she was oh behind one. Oh so josh, it was going to throw more strikes. He needs that second pitch and somebody said he was monkeying around with a change of to I don't know about that as a relief pitcher. A guy that have too many thoughts in his head hey, see number one, your phone number one, you see number three slider. Pallet cleanser off topic just to close out today you are a man who wears a great ball cap. You had this suburban ball cap out at big is the other night did you hear about Ben Affleck refusing to wear a Yankee cap in the movie gone girl and it shut down production for four days because he and the director David fincher couldn't agree on what to do you hear about this All Yeah Yeah Ben Affleck being a big old child being Boston strong saw. Fox, he said finches like the scene in gone girl demands a Yankee cap and basically. Athlete I'm not GonNa wear it because then it's forever then me as a red sock fan for life has to forever see that image of me with a frigging Yankee hat on he refused to do it the compromise four days later was he wore a mets hat was athletic in the right as a sports fan defending his honor or was he just a spoiled douchebag? Is Right in Matthew. Strong. I can straws. Ben. Ethic probably called up Marci Walberg and Mark Probably Austin. See. When you're an athlete, you wear the cap where they're gonna pay where the cap and where he got traded. You don't have a choice but as a fan, there's always a choice and it would be the equivalent of a packer fan putting on that awful bears see little. A if you're getting paid, you wear whatever when you're done playing the game if it's free, it's for me. So that's where my that's where my apparel comes from afterlife. See, but you can pass off the bear see as the Carroll, university see they're very similar. So how about? How. About? How about how about a cubs hat? Can you imagine Josh has brewer fan ever putting that filthy hat on your head? Now. Moya Lou would never let us forget it. You'll be all. Right take part man. All right. wags have a great weekend buddy. Thank you. Guys. Talking actually. Agnew brought to you by wealth freedom advisors. Always good stuff there. I think even though he is a douchebag Ben Affleck, he was in the right. I agree he was in the right you can't make him wear that hat. He can award any hat in that stupid scene I love New York right just an apple on the hat right? Right. So screw you David Fincher, you don't understand sports and you could have written a script differently, but you didn't. Coming up I'm taking the sixers off the Concern List because Ben Simmons who is a concern in the east? We wrap it up last night. And we will also talk cars or the man Ivan from Darren Oh you're listening to the Steve Zaven show on the game. down. Saturday. Last night. As I was recording my Friday edition of his aid cast. It is demanding me exactly. Loud bonus me unfiltered if you can't get enough of me and Who can't I mean. You're the dodd subscribe to the save cast wherever your podcasts I had charge on our buddy from et moods. At charge was talking about how much he loves cars and he loves buying houses. He said he loves the whole process of searching for big ticket items. He would. If he could buy a new house, every two years I'm like soccer to move. I know I know because I think tummy. I, know I forget what brought up. It was something like well, maybe this guy doesn't like to move and he goes Oh, I love moving into new houses and new cars. So we were talking cars and we somehow came upon the old Toyota supra he wants a super because he's looking at it. The MODEL was discontinued coming back it is. It's just okay it's back baby and it's spectacular. And he's like I would love to have one of those. Get One man you know you're a man of means and you've gotTA values like Aba I like my current ride pretty well and plus we're in Minnesota wherever. Winter car no, it's not a good car. So when he said Superego will that was my crush car in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six when I was a young man with a thirty two inch waist a head of hair and a gleam in my eye and dreams for life new and Armand Dreams. Yes, I did. The Toyota Supra of nineteen, eighty, six, I would look at that car on the streets and go. What year. So, for a little pop quiz for our next guest, our Friday cars Guy Ivan from rush Darrell Good morning, Ivan, how are you today my friend? Good Morning. I'm I'm good. Thank you for asking. Okay. So what do you think the nineteen eighty six Toyota supra had under the hood in terms of horsepower. Unfortunately. I would not know that answer. It is underwhelming two, hundred horse I was GONNA. Guess two hundred. That's it for a one point eight liter engine and that was considered at the time Ivan and you're younger than me. So you probably don't remember the vehicle when it was out on the roads that was considered like a sports car, a Japanese sports, car, the Toyota Supra. Now your civics get up to one, eighty, six in horsepower I believe. Yes they do. So it's amazing how far cars have come and you can get those civics tricked out with some pretty cool aggressive looks can't you? You sure can, and actually we do have to those Toyota super that you're talking about twenty twenty though whom we actually have an inventory at our Toyota store less bank. So if Anybody needs a super. You're talking about we do have a couple of bailable. There you go. Get after it. We'll give. Different search. Darah. Right, Ivan is the man. All right. So let's talk. Hondas for a quick second. I was I. Was at the airport I need to get a uber and a dialed one up and see it says Honda H RV. H RV and I said I usually keep up on Hondas product line I haven't heard of this vehicle, the Guy Rolls Up. Of course I've got my golf clubs. I've got my broadcast bag I've got my two other suitcases. Marilyn, Monroe steamer trunks arriving at the sands. Hotel. In Las Vegas is a joke right and I I thought was there's no way I'm getting all this stuff in their Lo and behold POPs. The hatch splits the rear seat Bing Bang boom I'm like, wow, this hr V. is a really roomy subcontract. What is the H. RV from Honda? Well HIV that came out with a few years ago and you know the segment of the you know Suv you know has grown tremendously I mean obviously you're looking at vehicle just like you're talking about where you can you know be able to carry things have family golf clubs anything you could for utilization of having a sport utility but then giving. You a little bit of a seal of the sedan where it's a little bit smaller You're still getting gas mileage a little bit higher. So it's really The you know manufacturers in our building a similar sized vehicle to this now. So the you know you have the Sierra, which is a little bit bigger. So if you WANNA have a little bit. What's the difference between an HR V. and a crv the HR V. looks more like a ground-based thing and the CRV sits higher. I would say the definitely a little longer and sits a little bit higher for sure. So it gives them the again t ability of carrying more things than have a little bit vehicle but you know a lot of the kids are a lot of people that drive the HR like that comfort of the feel of like a sedan, but you're able to. You know against it a little higher get as good a gas mileage and still be able to. Carry things for sure. Just like you're saying, you're able to load up the back in have that extra area in the back for sure. So it's it's. It's a great car. You guys were kind enough to let me drive around in the Ram fifteen hundred midnight edition. It was so sweet and the one thing that blew me away was when you got to back out not only the reverse camera, but the overhead view of the car, can you explain how they do that? Voodoo that makes it look like there's a drone hovering over you in the parking lot at a frigging quick trip and you're like, yeah, you're cool. How does that work that they actually call that a bird's eye view there's actually a cameras and sensors that are on the vehicle that help. Create that image in. It's able to recognize objects that are around I. Mean even the lines if you're trying to park in a parking spot, you'll recognize. Between the lines or not it's just technology. With cameras. Basically what comes out too, but it's called it's called the bird's eye view and it's really You know I know I've smoked in the past on on the station about some of the technology that comes out on these vehicles you think they've come up with it already but you know there's things that You know that are in the future that you know you just Kinda go. Wow you know how is it even possible for them to put that into vehicle, but they are but that bird's eye view is a pretty, pretty good feature. That's a helps you get less dings and dents on your car when you're parking it and know obviously for safety and if there's anything around yet it's moving I mean it alerts you. But it's really designed to help you park your car not be right next to another car or you know buildings whatever your parking garage that type of. Thank. Honda Toyota Nissan Mazda Kia Chrysler Dodge, jeep ram Mitsubishi plus a wide selection of pre-owned vehicles the rust, their automotive group they're all over the place. Give us on the way out the door today the car the week, car the week deal the week thought of the week as we head towards the weekend and people are thinking about going out to buy new vehicle.

Have you ever broken a driver like pricing into Shambo? You go after it pretty hard either.

I'm not The latest guy in the world and I did snap my shop than half one time doing that. So that was. Not Not, good for me to learn it's it's a lot more money for me to replace it than it is for bracing Campbell. That's for sure right when the guy had some. Success we can try it out and. Get the right one that he feels like. So that's pretty crazy. Got Tampa you can eat before unfortunately. But you can drive a car into a ditch and then just flip Mike Darrow the keys and say aren't the another one so I'd say it sort of evens out. I. Heard I heard you. Congratulate. Awesome. Yeah.

Have that have that quarter be worth twenty seven cents. Investments this void long-term investment, this arbitrage that you're trying to Hashtag slow play. Okay. The big picture. Coming up I'll tell you who I'm worried about me. Now, the bucks have wrapped up the number one seed. It's a shortening list to be sure great surging victory yesterday when things looked pretty bad. Thank God they won. We'll talk about. Radio APP. Dow. The weekend. All right. The list is Toronto of forest at Boston. Miami out sixers. Indianapolis. Out All depot has been playing for the Pacers Victor? Oladipo, you mean, INDIANA What did I say opinion hapless. Okay, thanks for the that's good to stop me and rant come unnecessary good timeout usage there. So anyway, all of the show is back. He's playing I. Got Twenty seven minutes. The other night took a game against the wizards played thirty two minutes of the restart. He was initially like am I gonNA play or not play. I like what Indiana's doing, but they need a fully engaged committed and fully healthy on the deep ball. Not sure he's there. So I'm taking Indiana out of concern mix for the Milwaukee Bucks, the sixers and Ben and the sixers even with Ben Simmons? Didn't consider them. They're a great paper team. They look great on paper and you're like, why aren't they better? It's because they don't have a good team concept. You know. Aside from the fact that bench him, it's can't shoot from outside a shadow, which is really embarrassing for a point guard. You know they're they're big man is great quote and a great character. Why am I blanking on his name right now embiid. Joel made Joel Embiid is a great character like a wrestler, but when comes time to deliver I don't count on him I worry a little bit about the celtics because Brad Stevens, I've got a men's respect there but the Butler clearly better and deeper than they are, and then Toronto is the genuine threat minus You know Kawhi Leonard Who's not there anymore they are a legit real threat to go back to the final. So that's my list of who am scared of in the East what about you. For me it's just Toronto. I think Ronald's proven that even without quiet can still be scary and With, what they did to the bucks last year, you know you slow that bitten the in your stomach going I. DON'T WANNA face Toronto Jen come on if Toronto Beats. The bucks with. Out. Co.. she's. This all God. OPUS LITTLE But they rallied yesterday and they came back. So that's good. Okay Okay. Okay. We got more texts coming in what was the one that you liked Josh did you have one that you said during the break? Did you see this one that came in? I did there were so many that came in since then hold on a Madden Auburn says, did you say the Tom Whoa Pat just texted in? No no, he didn't I. Just said that somebody pointed out that Tom Ak Luke Duke Lodi because Katie said he was from Appleton so. Laurie.

May and what if they were what they were like Seth Rogan anatomically correct super bad style. Just appendages Vani very right. And say. Okay Chris and Brooke. Kristin. Kristin Brookefield says car the week is always the Chevy. Corsica until we move it. Kansas can the four one four says the HR V. is built on the civic frame? So you're right Zave it's Kinda like a civic but with the CRV room, it was a nice car I was surprised. When he first rolled up I'm like man I ain't getting my stuff in this clown car. You kidding me next giving the next over this ain't gonNA work and they'll like, oh, wait a minute. We're actually okay SASA in the two six too much like Josh I collect hats and I've got at least one, thirty, nine, thirty for each MLB team as a brewer fan I have never warned the cubs nor the cardinals hats, but I do own them and they're in my collection. Yep, same that. Really Yeah I have fifty, nine, fifty of every team. And are they displayed somewhere they were back when I was in a box single and. Had plenty of room to put up things. You'll take those hats down yet. That was oh, those aren't coming into our house are they Well Yeah I. Isn't there room and the PABST.

Thank you a more brave members of our military that know how to drop ordinance to blow stuff up I. Christopher. said it was twenty seven hundred tons of ammonium nitrate abandoned by a Russian shipping company back in two, thousand, thirteen abandoned. Does seized. Because most of the fertilizer. Just, put in warehouse, you don't grow things in Russia. We don't write grow Russia we grow vodka. That's the. Long winters growing you want this fertilizer just. We've gone. We've been right back not know we'd be right back pick up on him nitrate. Hey. Where'd you go Ivan Victor Word you go. That I've gone exactly. C. J. Madison deserves friend used new math to calculate how much explosive needed to take down. Yeah? No kidding I hope not. So I'm bummed about this lambeau announcement but I'm not surprised. And I'm trying to figure out. The larger narrative going on right now in the country and I think I've got my finger on it I'm GonNa roll out my theory here and I'll let you guys react. Yes Josh. But is it at all trying to see silver lining the glass half full the fact that the isn't the silver lining that they didn't say all season they didn't you know say nope that's no fans all just to game. You know obviously it's not good side good news, but it's not like they did with the raiders did or you know some of these other teams and saying no, that's it. Here's the thing that is sobering. I don't think anyone knows what they're doing in terms of measuring this pandemic and heating any sort of metrics or graphs or charts or trends it's a disaster for example, I read this piece. Apparently The New York Times did a story. About, how in two thousand, six, a hospital in Vermont thought they had a whooping cough outbreak. Whooping cough which we do have vaccine for which can be very dangerous for the young and the old it's called Pertussis. Pertussis They thought they had a whooping cough outbreak in a hospital, and so they swung into action. They furloughed thousand workers quarantined a bunch of people tested everybody. And their initial tests they used was a PC taste test a palm arrays champion reaction test, the same. Technology we're using now to test for corona virus. The problem is the PTR testing. It's even on the label, the boxing this should not be used for diagnostic purposes. In other words, it's just. It's a snapshot of DNA fragments of foreign. Entities in your body and it's not a guarantee. There's a high false positive rate as we know now. But they use the PTR test because they had to move quick. Another test for whooping cough that they were able to do. It took longer were they cultured the Pertussis from swabs in a lab and like up there it is. There's the protests virus. With covert guess what we have no way of proving. Cove in nineteen, it does exist were doubtful of that but we don't have a test another words that can be used as a so-called ground truth. So you know how epidemiologists and doctors are now treating a true Kobe. Case To wildly inaccurate tests that are positive. In a row. Does that sound like it makes sense to you to me so it's like this test could be wrong thirty percent of the time but if you hit it twice in a row, that's a true positive really says who? A study from Denmark estimated that they would have to do twelve thousand tests. To find one true case of covid because they would get fifteen false positives. Crazy. Right. So we're testing out the WAZOO. There's a high level of false positives the actual signal of the virus meaning how prevalent is it in the general population is weak in other words, the general signal of the virus is about three percent they estimate. It's not thirty percent. It's like three percent of the population. So the signals week, the false positives are high and it's Jack in the numbers up left and right and nobody can make sense of it. I mean some people are saying hold on we're doing this. All wrong but we got nothing else. This is the only test we have because there's a new virus and we're testing testing testing testing testing testing testing the conclusion of this article was. This can go on for as long as we wanted to go on depending on how much we test. So stop testing. To a large extent, we should I think my personal armchair opinion is stopped testing a positive the asymmetric. That would be a start right there plus the delay in getting your result back even with the fastest turnarounds can be two or three days. You might have missed the transfer ability of the virus by then. So what good is it? Once you've tested somebody who symptomatic and is positive. There's a story out of Madison though UW coming up with a saliva tests with these even more inaccurate but we'll give results in three hours. Right you get results almost right away. Right now doing my magic in only takes ten seconds here we take me. Your hands off me yet? Oh I forgot I forgot to tell you the end result of this outbreak of Pertussis or whooping cough in the hospital in Vermont. This is a story New York, Times Newark Times by the way. So don't try to discredit as, oh, what are you some kind of covid truth or I'm not a real virus we get it but our ability to detect it is very suspect right now. The New York. Times article said when they did the full-on lab cultures guess what they found. Nobody had it. It was a false epidemic. It was some other respiratory bug that went through the hospital that looked and sounded like whooping cough but it wasn't. So they had a one hundred percent false positive rate using PCR. Tests. What's so we? I don't think we have a real handle on things but really here's. What? On what we're doing, but here's why I think the NFL and why certainly lambeau amongst others there they're deal going families for least some of the Games. Here's my theory just a theory. Sensitivity is the new highest virtue in the land. Sensitivity is way up there. You've got to be sensitive, hundred, fifty, thousand people died of this. I know somebody I know I get it. It's the new highest virtue in the land and we live in a virtue signaling but more importantly virtue shaming world. Where we shame those who are not virtuous the highschool in Georgia that had a bunch of kids without masks, the party that's at the lake of the ozarks without masks shame shame ring the bell like game of thrones shame. And so to open up and proceed as life as even pseudo normal like the NFL might at say twenty five percent capacity would be an act of what Josh in sensitivity. How dare you and as such, it would get savaged on social media. I can already see the takes being written right now. Who Does the NFL think they are? That's true. That's one hundred percents. No basis in science anyone with a brain can say, hey. Twenty five percent capacity at an eighty thousand seat stadium would be like bb's rattling around in a coffee can it would not be dangerous? No more dangerous than going to Costco P-. So why can't we do it because the NFL would get shamed and so the NFL like a lot of entities feels the need to sacrifice something to commit a lamb to the slaughter. Okay. We'll go a couple of games of no fans to prove that we're sensitive. We're joining the fight. And then at some point I don't know it's going to be the worm will turn. And the shaming will subside and maybe we can start doing some things that are really not that risky. It's just a theory I don't know what you think about it try it on for size and we'll see disappointing but not unexpected with the NFL. All. Right. Coming up. We'll go five wide. We'll talk to our guy. Brian. Butch, and John. Kuhn. Stay with us for that one more quick segment to set them up and they'll have a great show Madison. You've got Dan Patrick. You're in good shape. They're five wide is next. Roadwork up seven, ninety, four northbound over the bridge. You can find the right lane closed and we are now five. Nine. To with John Tune is next. Johnny is in the House Brian what us in the House says, well, yesterday was listening to the station while waiting for his daughter to get the magical ear tubes inserted I had that done with my daughter's yet thanks majority avation and you to Jordi Josh Okay. I also had a myself and and you what she got into it with Dario on twitter about whether the bucks were sort of shaking it on purpose just to practice. late-game surges is that it? You how dumb does that sell first of all, that's take first of all the you know the bugs are GonNa try to get down twenty one. Now try not to play transition defense they're going to try to make sure on over. Okay. So why? Guys. Any study you. Turn him down. You're cutting in and out their technology once again is our friend but attorney you, MR, Kuhne would a team actually try to do that like? Hey. Let's really get hammered and then we'll try to come back. No no not at all. It's the craziest thing you have to never play sports in your life to think that that was orchestrated right there at that you there's no way what a coach would say is, Hey, let's go out and slaughter these guys by thirty five in the first half and then I take you out. He would say something like that. But then when you find yourself letting up seventy points in the first half then say okay. Okay. You bums are staying in there until you figure it out. I think pride was wounded I think they're Kinda pissed off they were like you know what? Fun We're better than this why you gotta credit them then you gotta get them. And I do too. Yeah. That's. Four. But she is back you there but she. I. Am. Yeah. My Mike went out because Donald take was down. Mike. Can I can't listen to the stupidity. That was that was. How in the bud walks into the game before accurate I can picture this coup right McCarthy walks into your locker a walks into my locker room. It says, Hey, guys, we're GONNA get down by you guys get down by three types out bowl sits. We get down by twenty points because we want practice how to get back from this 'cause that's ever happened in the locker room. Yeah. I don't think that happens that sets the NBA, but she were everyone makes a run. Run even Spoelstra said we weren't up forty. We were up twenty three and it's the NBA. There's a lot of possessions. There's more possessions now because more teams shoot threes, they don't use the clock as much games been sped up in a blender. So these twenty three point leads don't matter. No they don't listen when you look at the area that I'm concerned at. On a half time they gave up seventy points like you can't give up seventy points and a half and win games consecutively. That's just the reality of transition defense was not good. The help the help or was not good. There was a lack of energy on their teeth event. This team is good enough to turn it on right you'll be able to do that in the first round. Of the playoffs as well, they won't be able to do the second round. They won't be able to do it in the third round. This was a meaningful game. All you have to do is look at the starting lineup the bucks throughout they took it meaningful. They got back to what they were doing in the second half, and that's what we're all kind of accustomed seeing seen happening here. I'm cracking up over here lack of energy. Defensive Man like isn't that the NBA What the NBA was now, lack of energy on defense event. Heck. Teams are teams scored one hundred and forty nine points and lose it in the bubble. These guys. Seventy. Five shootarounds. You haven't watched the raptors played. You love the Raptors Armagh seem and a few nights. Yeah. Have you watched these actively the multiple rotations they've had when a team is locked in defensively you see three or four different rotation to a close up to shooters. You didn't see that with the bucks in the first half guess what you did in the second half and that's why bloom out of other water. Did you hear but she about one of the things that the players at Texas Tech on their women's program complained about with their coach Marlene stallings who was let go yesterday. One of the things they said was that the staff demanded a heart rate of at least ninety percent capacity on these heart rate monitors that they made the players where during games and if they didn't keep it above percent, they could lose playing time or get more conditioning work and experts say that that kind of a heart rate for every minute you're on the game would be very difficult to do. What do you think? Stupidest thing I ever heard there's a reason that they had almost. Two or two thirds of the. Transfer out if you so down like there's no I, don't even think my heart rate could have got ninety I'm not. Ninety Lake. What are you supposed to do if you're in the game and you're not guarding somebody who's got the ball or your guarding a big man who's down lower big woman is download Jacks Jumping Jack Right? Is that what it is? Buddy. Boxing you out jumping Jack. Here we go. I gotcha. You know the one thing that NBA players now hate is the League has these sophisticated tracking cameras up in the rafters. Your where right, bushy. Yup Yup. Go your movement how fast you move. At the speed, you move track how many miles you've run distance. Distance you move and so they are able to then rate how people are in terms of you know feet moved permitted of play and some guys who you're not shocked. You're like, wow, he doesn't really move very much steve when when I first got to the Green Bay packers they used to have this room where you would put on like the bubble suit. You know that that that they would do for animated movies so that they could try madman since movement and they would track you in a room and see how your movement was the functionality of it and how it would match up in your explosiveness and all this stuff and. Yeah I never went in that room I never. You if you can't judge me with the Open I. If you can't see if I can play or not using your open I, you're not going to digital is me and That way same dirt's want the data I used to cut. The GPS is out of the out of the jerseys that they put in because they're not going to tell me I only run three quarters of a mile at practice because I only get thirty one and at the goal line I don't even have a chance to run a mile right. Now, I gotta go to yards. So wait they put gps in your jerseys all. SMART. That started probably twenty, twelve, two, thousand, thirteen got some really great stories. I gotTa tell you down the line some time about the gps you wild things you find out about people put. That's how they figure out how fast guys are running at the Games and people love when they show the five fastest people at the game did GPS tell you like when quarterbacks? Turns right after. Into the end? Zone. The GPS said we've detected a faster route to the end zone. Would you like to take this route? Traffic ahead, traffic route reroute to the be gap reroute to the be gap. I'm I'm just changing my voice. Make a U-TURN I'm distracted. No. Like in ways you should use the cookie monster voice, which is the goat. All ways voice. It's gone now. Is it. Really seasonal thing was GONNA is coming back up north of July. Did you ever hear the boy band voice? That's what's on my now at the stop sign term. It's OK. Okay that's. Cool thing it's not a clock and get. One cookie I want cookie monster GPS and Kuhn's Jersey okay. Let's go touchdown. Now, who would make young? So touchdown get cookie now dum dum dum.

The Connecticut Sports Guys

"Radio. you're tuned in to the Connecticut. Sports is on blog talk radio call in to join the conversation live at three, two, three, four, one, seven, six, seven, zero, one. We're live every Tuesday and Thursday night at seven. PM. Let's head into the studio right now. But Connecticut sports guys are on the air Right Sports, guys, and I'm rolling in Knoxville Schmidt Right. Now, as we get ready to get you two hours of lively sports debate on this Thursday evening, the thirtieth of July how you doing tonight, nate. I'm doing fantastic Joe Happy to be here and I am happy to be watching some LOB sports. I gotTA gotTa admit it's making my life more happy. It is it is it is I and little bit of benign. No basketball's going on tonight for the first time I'm looking forward to the weekend I actually bought the package last night. So I'm looking forward to really when that case in this weekend and basketball courts back in baseball. Even with the spending play of the Marlins and a few other things It's good at the baseball players back although this week it's kind of like it. To me even with what we've been through over the last year watching what the Yankees did to the Baltimore Orioles just. Having an extended batting practice against them and then you got Jacob degrom visiting well, just well enough to knock it a to get a no decision the Boston it looks like the New York. Teams are back in midseason for. A week on the right. Yeah I mean you know with the Graham was trying to continue his thirty one inning scoreless streak which was tied for third in franchise history. It didn't have his greatest stuff I didn't think but they let him go a little bit longer I think they'd been holding them below about sixty pitches. In his previous start but they let him throw six, eighty, eight pitches. It certainly wasn't his fault that they lost and You know it goes back to what we talked about last week I mean the Yankees have a bullpen and the mets don't and I know Alex? Loves. Lugo. But he came in and the seventh and gave up a home run to Bosca's and. Then Justin Wilson. Came came in and the aid and he didn't pitch horrible but he walked three people and then that's when those bloopers You know the bloop single that he gave up. That's that's when you get hurt when you walk a bunch of guys and then you give up a little bluebird and that gave up the lead in and dig ROMs pitching performances. wasted. So you know it's it's the exact same thing we talked about on Tuesday the bullpen of the mets was looking. Bra. But the bullpen of the Yankees. Great you know we got to see Garrett Cole pitch again and he went six in two thirds and gave up the runs but he had seven strikeouts and then the pen came in and gave up zero run. So they were able to be the the lowly oriels which you know was nice that they get to play them. I. Guess. Yeah I did I mean. By the way so people know Alex will be tuning in later on with us he's he's busy coaching across right now but anyways Yeah but you know the whole thing with the with the Yankees and maybe it's just my bias against tonight night. Admit to it I mean I mean really they are just so much better than Baltimore? It's almost unfair. It's almost four watch Any I mean even even against other teams, they have such a huge margin for error with that team. That's so loaded and as you say has the bullpen and order has apparently at least a. An ace now with a solid starting staff where everybody else is going to be the The the the narrative of the year for the mess is GonNa be the margin of error they they. They have to play their best and we talked about the other day I'm for getting guys go with younger town taking your chance Jd Davis maybe at third putting you know You know the other guys in places when letting them play everyday and establish team. But then again when they have nights where they can't big plays. Where they're not getting you're going to have those kind of. Waste. Great pitching performances like we did with the Graham and we've been doing it for now we're going on for years I mean he's won two cy young just because he's been dominant and people had to recognize it you can't look at his record on another team would have great supporting cast. You already have one hundred wins in his career and he's still thirty four victories away from having is hundred win in the major, league? That this is related aimless mazes. Not mean great pitcher and Syndergaard to He'd you know he's not throwing right now but he's a great too but he pitches her the mets and he gets no help behind him and they can't generate runs either. So it's you know they gotta get it together the season's not over they got a couple. You know they got they got some time but you know this is a shortened season that sixty games, and this is what we didn't want to see coming out of the gate was exactly what we're seeing. Any you know the whole thing is you know, I know the mets are going through transition or trying to sell the team they're trying to you know Brodie, van wagon the only been on. The job for two years. Now they've got a new manager you know they're trying to implement all kinds of changes, but you'd like to see some kind of a light in the tunnel where they're building towards something like the Yankees had you know a couple of years ago when you to going through the building, you know they still all automatically. So Gary, Sanchez takeoff, you saw Aaron Judge Take off you know bonds almost like you know he's the real deal but I mean, you'd like to see a little bit more consistency from a Conforto like import out he's very, very streaky. NEA's it's hard. Play for the you know to the bands to get behind him when he can go through a series like this where he's non-existent and all of a sudden in a week, he'll go in a seven game series go something like you know Twenty for forty two. You know you're you're sitting there going well now you know why we got him and it just WanNa see consistency from this team you WanNa see it. Generally is be able to take your business. I mean. Right now, the Red Sox aren't that much better really than the Baltimore Orioles a Lotta in a Lotta ways and the mets good. Sweep the series. And they're GONNA win three out of four whereas you know the Yankees would've taken care of business and that's that's the difference. When you sit here, I know you're banned from an, you have a passenger to mess with really is a painting. But when you're around here and you're running into defense right and left and right and left and you feel like your tv I, don't know I don't know if you get that feeling down where you are I mean I don't know if you have back in Anno inferior already complex I guess I have up here. Oh I do because my dad's a Yankees Fan. So you know I have to listen to him you know laughing at me and it you know I it just it. It hurts a little bit and I was excited about the season I mean, let's be honest. I mean can Ford does he's hitting the ball he's got seven hits Nemo hitting the ball spit is is hitting. The ball I mean we we've got some decent bats, but it's just can they put it together and can we Can we survive in the later innings? mean the this bullpen is scares me and Alex is a little more optimistic than I am but that's because I'm jets and mets fan and When you're Jetson mets, it's you know there's a lot. There's a lot of clouds. You look back at at the Yankees like we were talking about. You know they had beyond green and Christie come in and gave up zero runs, their bullpens getting done, and they don't even have Chapman Chapman. You know as we talked about it in the preview show tested positive for covert and has not yet to pitch in a game I don't believe and They're still they're still doing it and getting it done in the pen. So you know. We talked about there's probably not gonna be that many many trades They'RE GONNA have to get it done with the guys they have. But you know maybe getting another arm in there wouldn't hurt him I. Don't know I don't know what the answer is. It's kind of like a Tuesday when we were talking about the Knicks I. Don't know where to start with that roster and the mets they're going to need a little bit of help but there's just not going to be a ton of trades I don't think as you mentioned. I don't think it all. The that's that's you be little with Yankees doing but I mean, I've seen some bad pittsburgh teams. I've seen some bad Kansas City team I help scenes bad met teams but I don't know if I've ever seen a team as bad as just Baltin orienting. It's almost like no they belong in the major leagues. It's usually you look around team and even on your worst here have one or two or three maybe maybe a picture you can build on maybe a you know a couple of fielders. You can see that that are gonNA form the core of their batting order. This team is just horrendous I. Don't know have you ever seen team then this bad. I don't know I don't know. I have to admit I. watched the game was was it last night? Yeah. Last night I can't I'm getting my days confused coming back off vacation now being at work I'm running around like a crazy man trying to get caught up and I'm confused but yeah, last night. I've got to be honest I watch a lot of sports I watch a lot of baseball I'm more of a football guy is you know but I've always baseball I didn't know a lot of those guys I didn't know may only any of them I'm like where's Adam Jones whereas anybody that I've ever heard of on this orioles roster I mean who's Their Star, WHO's the guy that brings people to Camden yards I mean obviously, you can't go there right now. But I'm saying WHO's the superstar? WHO's the leader of that club I have no idea and then I looked at their pitching staff just to see if there was some guys there that I knew their pitching staff might be worse than their lineup. They may be the worst team. They're definitely the worst team in baseball in my opinion, and they've definitely got the worst lineup. Maybe they'll come together as a team in wins and games I don't know. But I definitely in my opinion going from top to bottom up and down that roster, they have the least amount of town in my opinion. And by far by far, I've never seen this team that I really, and that's why I in a way you know and not to do you know do the servicing Yankee but it's almost like it's uncertainty they have the Yankees. Game and it would be more and. More competitive for sure because what they're showing out, there is nothing we you know baseball continues deal with the fact of the Marlins and the Phillies, and you know how they're gonNA, Rearrange your schedule. If you're GONNA come back now they're talking about maybe if they have to make up games having is a double header having both games or at least a later game, the seven inning game how do you feel about that? I don't like that I don't like I mean I I've been I've been pretty open to change considering I. Am a tradition you know traditionalist as you know I like I fear change but I've been accepting of with all that's going on I've been accepting the no fans understand we gotta do we gotta do with the pandemic I've been accepting of the putting the guy on second base I get it when we don't have three you know we don't have single. Aa. Triple eight going on that we can call guys up send guys down and do all the. Normal stuff. So I kind of understand those things. But what are we doing now playing high school baseball and going seven innings? We're GONNA have coach pitch next and have these guys dads come out there and throw to him I mean give me a frigging break I. I don't really like that and I i. think we're already short in the season to sixty games from one sixty two. That's a hundred and two games difference. We've already added a guy running out there on second base I mean what are we gonNa have four outfielders I I just I. Think it's stupid. I do tuning in in the worst thing I can see it coming down to is it comes down to a team qualifying for playoffs and they get to play a seven inning game I mean we you have a team competing in nine any game you can't do that I mean you can't scenario and football and saying, okay, you only three quarters. know exactly you know we can't. You know you gotta play. Just to keep it all above board on the same page, you can't start messing around I understand we're in we're in. Uncharted territory and we don't WanNA put these guys in new farm quite as it's you know as it turned out, it was those guys going out and and breaking the social protocols they got them in trouble wasn't anything that went on in the field if they had. Done what they're supposed to do obey the rules we wouldn't be having this problem with the Mar- The marlins. So I think they got to really push the fact that these guys is you guys at three months of your life is you know you know you look around this country there are people have been sitting home because they can't afford to dinner for three months. You can. You can sit there if you really want to play baseball in, obey the rules and. Do the stuff you gotTa do to make this happen. So I have no pity for them and I. Hope I hope that they they get this thing straightened out What is your feeling about nick? Marquess you think maybe we might see a couple of other players make a decision to come back or are we still going to be like an elevator some going out some backs I'm going out some going back. What do you think about? Marquette decided to come back. I don't I don't really I'm kind of against it I know at least from what they've talked about. In the NFL if you opt out, you're done and you can't come back. You can't decide after watching two games that you want. You know you WANNA be out there and you WANNA be on. TV like these other guys are that's exactly what he said. He said he's been sitting at home watching Games on TV and he you know he just got this bad feeling in his stomach and he wanted to come out and play with his teammates well, then you should have done that from the beginning bro and it's like. I I i. opted out because a health risk. Well, guess what we're all facing health risk right now I you know I can't opt out of going to work. I have to work every day to feed my baby and you know pay for you know the bills are still coming. So I gotta you gotTa go the everyone's taking risk right now and I just I kind of feel like I liked the NFL's attitude towards it and what they've kind of worked out with the players union, they're giving these guys some time to decide. They've got a little way where they're doing the tolling, where their their contract basically tolls over to next year and they're getting three, hundred, fifty thousand if they're at risk and they're getting a hundred and fifty. Grand if they're not and they're giving these guys a choice and they're saying either decide to play or don't decide to play and I and I'm not, you know I'm not belittling anyone's decision that they make. But I I just feel like if you decide that you're not gonNA play in you opt out I. Don't think you should get to come back. A couple of. Weeks. Later, I just feel like either need to do it or not do it and I don't. I don't really understand that baseball's allowing these guys that kind of go back and forth are you? Are you aware that they have a they don't have a rule against this they're just letting guys come back if they want to or what? I think it's uncharted territories and you know you don't baseball we've seen from baseball since this whole thing began as they did not plan anything out. It was all about the money how they were going to split them money how we're GONNA get they did not look into. Well are we going to give these guys the option of look at the sitting home taking yourself or taking a leave of absence and coming back doing this I? Don't think they never sat there and put any contingency plans You know John. Wooden would say you know you know failing the planet is plays is cleaning out the anything. This is what we're finding with. The Major League baseball all the way down the road and and I think it just shows from top to bottom that they they're commissioner is kind of a rookie in. SAFE, state. So we'll see what happens but I. I mean I would in part of me would love to see some of these guys. Want to come back but I agree with you you know we don't want that either where you know you have these guys all of sudden you know in week. Eight week nine, decide well, I can play twenty games. I can go what it looks like. It looks like everything's settled down now and all of a sudden you know some of these guys get to add some. Ryan Zimmerman, comes in and becomes that player that Washington needs and prevents the mets from making a run. You know you don't want. That kind of thing happening. So yeah, I totally agree with you that. Or David Price. I mean he's as as Alex mentioned, he's not the pitcher he once was but let's say he decides to come back after the dodgers you know make the playoffs and I hate the dodgers the last thing I wanna see them getting better once they get to the postseason I mean I just I I really don't like that and I think you know you need to you need to decide and. As, we've talked about all along the MLB is just Seems to be the least prepared of any of these sports. I'm not saying that basketball's plane is imperfect and You know that they're great or at the NHL has no flaws in it or anything like that. This is all as you mentioned uncharted territory, but it seems like baseball just kind of thought about the money and then. decided well, we'll figure everything else out later and they're finding out that that's not going to be quite as easy as expected You know as they as you mentioned, these guys decide to go out to a club. They're already taking the frisked by traveling way more than these other. Guys that are you know doing the thing and the bubble or playing up in Canada like the NHL they're traveling around hopefully, you know more regionally than ever but they're and they're going out to the club and and picking up chicks that are giving them Kovin I mean absolutely ridiculous and these guys I hope they learn from this because I hope the other teams learn from this because if this continues it could be a you know I it could be a stop season real fast. For, sure you're talking to you when we're talking on the phone before about the football players I didn't see any new names come out today. Did you see any new names commander of of people opting out? I did then they still have a days. A lot of people are waiting, but there was they. They're having everybody come in for testing right now in the NFL and I guess they're just trying to get an idea of where they are but you test positive you're automatically put on the cove it I are is what they're calling it and I know for a fact that up in Detroit Kenny Gallaudet who's their? Maybe their best player, but their best wide receiver in their biggest offensive threat he he tested positive. For Kobe. So he's on the the cove it I are which I'm not the language was a little bit tricky I read it but I'm not sure if it's a three week, I think he's out maybe out for three weeks I think it's a twenty one day thing where he has to Kind of go into quarantine, and then they kind of ease them back in They also had TJ Hopkinson who's their second year tight end who's another big part of their offense he tested positive. So there's been some guys that have opted out, and then there's been some guys that have tested positive and what that does is it you know it puts everything even more kind of behind the eight ball in the sense that these guys are GonNa be. Late, getting there to the conditioning lot of camps are starting They reported reporting on the twenty eight and yesterday other teams started and today was the last day that team started. So guys are showing up getting, tested and some of them like day and Hopkinson are popping, and that's just pushing them back from getting. You know they're not going to start wearing pads hitting each other right now but with no OTA's with no off-season program with no mini camp. This is when they need to start getting into shape and it's just making it more and more difficult to try and get You know a team together to get things rolling. Now, I don't think Freeman is still out there as a free agent right now right? That's correct. what do you going down anybody trying to make a move towards him? I mean? Right now I'm here. Go ahead. No I was just GonNa say that apparently he He was offered a contract I. believe it was in Seattle. But. It wasn't the he wanted more money, and so he said and I I heard this from his agent that he's willing to sit this year out. I don't know if he's just going to opt out or if he's GonNa sit out based upon contract, but he's wanting more money than people are wanting to give him I mean the guy's been banged up for two seasons. Now are the better part in two seasons he's still a good player and I think he's got gas left in the tank but you know he he was holding out and he turned down some contracts based on that and then I did you're asking if anyone else opted out I did see that the chiefs running back Damien Williams who was a big part in their super bowl run he opted out of the season. So that was one that was probably the biggest name of the guys that I heard that opted out today. Yeah. Just wondering if you know Freeman with with people opting out if that might open up the door for him a little bit it looks like Seattle trying to put together a run. They're they're really serious. Of Atoms and things like that, I think pe- Caroline. He's getting You know he's those this team back up again to compete but I mean, he's not getting any younger. I. He's getting towards seventy or not seventy already. So have that he's he's pushing it off to the center table going all in. So might not be a bad for Freeman end up if he was willing to take some kind of an incentive, laden contract kind of Cam Newton and go up there and make money that way I mean. I don't know he's these players they a you know it seemed like when like when Bell Levy on bell sat out for a year and then you think he was gonNA end up with the jets and all of a sudden he goes back to the jets and he finds a coach that doesn't like him at all sitting out for A. Year and getting healthy may not be always the best solution the I I don't think it especially, it'd be a chance to join a championship level team like Seattle. So Freeman might might end up regretting that we'll see what happens there We'll come back to the NFL with a wild because WANNA. Go over. We had the NFL players voted on. The top one, hundred player of all time in our last half hour I wanna get to the top twenty there, which is kind of intriguing a little a little bit but we also have to get to our NCAA top twenty running back of all time and my I don't know how your list came together. Man is a lot of players. On that list, you have to go through a lot of grief running back from in NFL AARON NCAA history we got that to get to, and of course, you're GONNA, call it three, two, three, four, one, seven, six, seven, one you send over something we quick about Tennessee and their schedule. It looks like they're putting lsu old misunder scheduled this year. Yeah, I was just mentioning how the The sec they finalized their plan today to go with a ten game you know in we talked about this before that they were leaning towards this but they kind of finalize the plan they're going to start their season. The whole SEC conference is going to start their season on September twenty six and they're gonNA play ten Conference Games, and basically how they're going to do it is they're going to add two additional opponents from the opposite side. So like using the Tennessee example there in the east, they're going to add ole miss and lsu to their scheduled to make it a full ten game slate and. I mean, this is GonNa. This is GonNa make it really interesting I actually more intrigued now after hearing this I think it's GonNa. Be Kinda. Cool. I. Mean There's GonNa be no Alabama versus you know Montana state there's GonNa be no Alabama Birmingham at Auburn you know this is GonNa be Conference Games every week we already talked about in our preview segment how the SEC my opinions just gotten better I mean look at the coaches they've added. Lane Kiffin and old Miss Mike Leach. Mississippi State you got the lsu coming back You know after the national championship with Miles Brennan quarterback with Joe Borough Gone I mean this is going to be a conference game every single week for ten weeks You know battling all the way up to where they play the SEC championship. The only thing that I didn't catch in my research was how they're going to figure out who the national you know who the four teams are that go into the you know the National Championship College Football Playoff. This is what we talked about to several weeks ago when we were saying this would be a great. Time where they had an eighteen playoff, you know I mean if you took all the teams you know you've got basically five power five conferences. If you could take the best eight teams at the end of the season after they play their ten games I think it would make a really cool tournament this year but I'm not sure how they're gonNa do that as far as picking maybe they do the same thing. They always do where they they send it to the committee and let them choose You know the top four teams but I think it's Kinda interesting how this this conference schedule thing is shaping out. I totally agree with you I would love to see them expand a little bit more and have a semi final final in the conferences. Get the top. Yeah. Have I have a fourteen tournament in the conferences have a semi-final final weekend now later. The top teams are actually playing twelve games or they're playing twelve with Jit Games, and then set that up for like you said an eight-game tournament i. think that would make this a while wonderful NCAA season I think it would be phenomenal the. Could see. The ATC Clemson. On Notre Dame, North Carolina and Florida State and Alabama Auburn Lsu and you know. Named one of the other great team Georgia. I mean when to his aid a week I think that would be. I mean you could sit up into a Saturday Thursday combination uneven which would be great I. Mean I. Go ahead. No I love it. I love it. I think it'd be really cool to once again it's because we've got the NCAA still involved. is got You know these idiots in charge I mean they if we had a decent organization actually run in this thing, they could do a lot of things here and get creative and make it really cool and really fun where you know hopefully the pandemic slowed down a little bit by the time the seasons completed, and then we could do something like that and take the. Top four teams and play a semi final and then play a championship game because it's you know, what are you GonNa do at the end of this if Georgia's Teno Bama's tend to know they play in the conference. Championship. Game. Georgia wins then Alabama's out I mean I. I. I think that's ridiculous and One thing just real quick. We were talking about you were talking about Freeman he when he turned down the sea hawks offer, they immediately went in and signed Carlos High. So like Oh talked about Pete Carroll and all them, I know I didn't want to get off. Because we moved on but my my brain wasn't working at that time. But yeah, I think they're primed for run here in last year with all those injuries at running back they wanted to add one more guy. So when Freeman, turn them down they added the old Ohio. State Guy Carlos? Hyde. Ran over a yards last year for the Texas. Coincides equality back I mean even he's never gonNA. Make you you know forget about the top action in the Imia Nfl, but he definitely knows how to get things done. The other thing ACC came out I got this from Jason Bomb lose the s I. D. for Boston College and The most incredible thing is you know they are doing the same thing with their their football wins and the team I mean to get the Catholics to agree to split their money is really is really something strange and for Notre, dame to agree to ten to. Go Catholic Church and ask them for money. They're always asking for money for you come on. Really I mean. Come on tithing don't they? They must. They must increase the hiding. Take take a little something that everybody's pocket a little bit more out of their paychecks. Subway they're going to get it back for them to split their NBC money and agree to come on board and I mean I don't think any alternatives I mean it would have been ridiculous seeing Notre Dame filling out there a schedule with a bunch of mid you know mid American teams or Yukon or what are these other teams I mean maybe maybe it sets precedent would come up your high horses and You know become a real part of the ACC. I mean I'm a Notre Dame fan every note about me, but I also don't like the. Of Notre Dame with their you know we're more and more we're more. They're not more powerful than anybody anymore been a long time. Since Notre Dame has been a real legitimate. NCA football power the you know days of air procedure in you know win a national championship are long in the rear view mirror right now. So maybe if they would. Horses and join the ACC on a full-time basis. They could set up a recruiting base where they would get. Better players and get. quarterbacks like we've talked about to make del happening, and also it helps the ACC. Now to have them in the mix and you know they should. They can maybe put together a schedule where it won't be Clemson on a extended victory lap. So hopefully, it works out down because. We really want this to be a good college football season and. Without. Further Ado I. Think we should probably get into our top twenty running back for. A long time to get through because I got I got a bunch of honorable mention is well. And If you want to start out well, we start with the monorail mentioned. Go ahead. Give me your honorable mention guys. I you. meet. ME. Can you hear me out there right now? Need I duNNo. Lost you out there. Please dial back in. I think we might have lost need for a few minutes we're putting together as we been doing last few weeks the top twenty and CA list we've gone through the top defenders, and now we are in the top wide receivers. Now are running backs in i. believe we got an eight back here. Let me see. We got him. Yeah, I'm here I I was there I got kicked off but I called right back in. But I, was I was on mute or something but can you can hear me now? Right? The, I got you. That's good. Okay. Now, the other thing I was GonNa say was I was agreeing with you I think it's a win win for everybody I mean Notre Dame was already playing a six game ACC schedule I. Think they saw the writing on the wall they were GonNa get chucked out of this thing if they didn't join the conference with teams with all these teams and all these conferences only playing conference games they were in the big world of hurt 'cause they probably just get left out so and and like you said it's GonNa make the HEC stronger. Hopefully, they'll put them in the opposite division of Clemson and You know that way. It's not a ten in one or or excuse me ten to eleven clemson team against the you know eight and four Virginia like it was. Last year the year before it was Clemson Virginia Tech who was like seven and five I mean they need another team in that side but I think it'll be good. Yeah they definitely do you. WanNa start up the runback lists you start with the. Your Honorable Mentions Yeah my honorable mentions are two guys that I couldn't really actually. There's three guys that I couldn't really leave off one of them was gentlemen who just passed away recently Mr Johnny Majors I had him higher on my list, but I, you know just based upon I didn't really get to see him play I didn't WanNa take somebody else's spot but I was unbelievable football player. He was the runner up for the heisman trophy probably actually as we talked about Peyton should've winning Johnny major should win the Heisman to that was the year that your boy from Notre Dame won the heisman when they I think they were two and seven or something and They still gave it to to your boy from Notre Dame but he was a football player. Jim Around round was in that year to David Hammer Jim br ninety made. His Yeah they heisman. It's always been like that but I put johnny majors up there. I also wanted to include my boy Travis Henry from Tennessee all time leading rusher in Tennessee history he had five, hundred, fifty six carries for over three thousand yards, twenty six touchdowns, and if you think about it, the guy battled from injuries and then he also played in a. Backfield with Jamal Lewis, Shawn Bryson and Travis Stevens. So there was four NFL running backs and You had You had the guy come out being the the all time leading rusher so I had to put him in my in my honorable mention. So those those are the two that I that I included. I said, it was three but I was two guys. I'M GONNA go a little bit more extensive in my. Mentioned because I. Really had trouble poke going. Down I tried to keep it to the players I saw there's only one I I. I can't say I really saw him in college but I was you know I was a little kid when he started fleeing trophy also. But he made my my mean draw. So we'll start quickly ricky bell US's one of them for two years. I mean the guy was phenomenal seventies Darren mcdaddy with Arkansas another guy gap I almost thousand yards forty one touchdowns. Melvin Gordon with some concert. Another guy you know you talk about five thousand yards and forty five touchdowns. Through Diversity Eddie George I had to have money rb two years. thirty, three, hundred yards, thirty touchdowns. Davis of Iowa State even though he played on a terrible team, I mean Russia two thousand yards twice is pretty phenomenal. is awesome. Yeah. Cedric. Benson made my honorable mention sixty five under yards and sixty four touchdowns DeMarco Murray of Oklahoma. Thirty six, eighty, five, and fifty touchdown and then Derrick Henry that one year twenty, two, hundred yards and twenty eight touchdowns. I had to slide them in there because I go Doberman honorable mentions and believe me. I put fifty on this list they kept going for more. So if you want to start out number twenty, we can start a week and started of now. Yeah This is a guy that probably a lot of people wouldn't tap on this list because he got in zero credit. But when it was all said and done he had seven hundred and twenty five carries for forty four, hundred yards, thirty eight touchdowns. He finished sixth in the Heisman last year and he also finished second all time at Ohio State University and that's Jk Dobbins one of the best running backs I've ever seen in my life I thought he was by far the best running back in college football last year I. Think you're GonNa see I just I'm I'm pretty I'm putting my sports reputation on this guy because he is GonNa blow up for the Baltimore Ravens in the next in the next season or two and i. Just loved watching him play Ohio state he he was so strong and so relentless run the football. He could. He could get you those one or two yards on third down in one or fourth down in one but he also wants he ran over one or two people could race and you know just get past the defensive backs because he was so fast and I love watching. This guy play I'm GonNa Miss Watching him play at Ohio state as he's been there the last three years and went over a thousand yards. All three years he was at Ohio state and just ended up you know coming in second there's been a lot of great running backs up there and to to finish second all time I had to put him at number twenty online. Good. Really good choice I mean. I really I. I saw him only in the big games last year. But definitely, any definitely in the right spot in the NFL with the the Ravens and that offense and I mean he'll fall right in there and I think a very productive pro-career. My number twenty is Kind of on the wacky people the NFL over the last thirty years. But his time in labor longhorns Ricky Williams. With a productive back sixty, two, hundred yards, seventy, two touchdowns Is brokering maybe had highs and lows, and maybe the he liked to smoke the gun a little bit too much. Yeah. Definitely. More highs than lows with ricky. And all. But as far as being a productive running back in the NCAA I had to put him in my number twenty. So I'm going with Rick Quick. Yeah. No, he's. He's on my list. He's actually pretty high up on mine because he was just unbelievable and You know I I kinda misunderstood too mean. He's got a little quirks to his personality but really he's a good guy and You know I think there was a lot put on his shoulders when they saints traded away like eight players forum in their entire draft You know they just kind of expected them to win every game at running. Back and it was you know I understood why you may have had some issues with but unbelievable guy, my number nineteen is a do that is the all time leading rusher in NFL history but also had a really good career at Florida was one of the first players to come to get Florida on the map and football people forget you know Florida's been around for some years now but before spurrier got there and before they had those National Championships. To wasn't really a you know a powerhouse back in the day but Emmett. Smith. Had almost four thousand yards and thirty six touchdowns and and was just a a bad ass when he was playing for the gators. Have moved higher up I. Totally agree with you I mean they were third class citizens, men Miami was so great and win Florida state was there you had to work harder? You were a gator to get noticed so you're definitely was he was maybe the best back whoever came out of Florida and I definitely agree with you I got a little bit higher up my number nineteen I went to North East undersized croker ended unfortunately a controversy what for a guy for Scarlet Knights Ray rice a small guy almost five thousand yards where nine stands with rutgers Had A quarterback there to work with him never really had a great team around him and He was just quality college back and as good as maybe the best teams ruptured ever had were were because of him being there there centerpiece. So when we're Ray, right? Yeah my number. I think he's got to be the best player ever to come out of rutgers isn't he? I? Mean? I don't know I I can't think anybody else. I can't even I mean maybe you know somebody would argue somebody back in the late eighteen hundreds or hundreds when you know when you alison a program but not in my lifetime nobody near Rice. No he was really good player and was really good player in the. NFL to help, lead the Ravens to? The Super Bowl. They're I mean obviously. He kinda got made an example out of by by punching his fiancee in the face but you know. GotTa deal with them and we made right. There yeah exactly. I Made Up Discrimination I. Think we. I see Louis here on hold I'm going to bring him in for a quick. Shout out, and then we'll get back to our at number eighteen hold on. Let me get Louis up here. Sounds good. Louis. Is You Here. I mean nate how you doing Alex is doing some coaching McGraw's right. Now how are you doing Hey Louis? Right So you're working on the list jumped in late. So this is this. Is the top twenty NCA running back of all time. Yeah. That's A tough one. But at least we have everything coming into play you know basketball's back I'm actually watching the jazz podcast game right now. Hockey starts And don't Walk College football because I think we're onto something here. Because they found out something very interesting. which what's at? Four out of five. So called power conferences have now worked on schedule. It's like ten to eleven games of conference. Only schedule a conference only opponents but there there's still gonNA. Do it hey I got no problem with that beyond. The full cost at all. Okay. So it's not GonNa Labor Day weekend. Let's turned. That's fine. Yeah. We just we were just talking about that and We kind of think it might be interesting. You know you're not. GonNa have Alabama Plane Florida. Am this year you're going to have all conference opponents and even the lower level conference teams. They can come up and get fired up and you know maybe steal one so I think it makes a pretty good football. Well sure because you know, let's say like open please Florida. Or Texas employees like UMASS, I mean it doesn't really make for compared to football. Anyway I mean nobody wants to see that I could just see the score now Alabama eighty to. Florida. Three. Yeah. Yeah I mean there's probably wants to see that come on those. Yeah. There's always one or two of those games to start the year where you know Clemson plays Louisiana, tech, and beats him by seventy. It's like who cares play extras And bring the Conference Games on. Your we should is bringing Notre Dame in the ACC fulltime now, making them like that see and you know, I, always go. To be honest. Well I agree with you that would have been better all around. I mean, it would ideally would Maryland back seeing so You know these Catholics nowhere to go to get money and I, think they they don't want to give the ACC money for basketball tournaments. Had that kind of thing. And I was. Like super. Vantage I. was a kid nate. Remarkable to get Catholic give up half your money to play. And share that in indy money so It'll be really thing. When they ask you something before we go I mean Prediction Rangers. Re. Freund. Yeah well. I think it's a fairly even series. You know I've said I'm. GonNa see ringers. How did the islanders? Think they. Do that in four. So those survived survived the first round. I'll tell you there's a match up I'm really looking forward to is Edmund in Chicago I I think Chicago with some fresh legs might be able to get past Edmonson but we'll see what happens i. don't know if they'll have enough to get it through, but they do have a wealth of experience in three guys when the conn Smythe Trophy on that team, which is rare to have. So it's going to be All of that. Yeah exactly. So what you have going on this weekend Louis. When you're? Well. Let's just say we got the good. The Bad Oh yeah. We've got the ugly I mean the good guys We got Haagen basketball back. Hopefully football. The bad is you know with baseball ugly because you know with the Florida marlins right now it's looking really ugly and so it's not doing much better because they got they got in trouble too. I also have ridiculous I the week that I'm sure that most people in this area could agree on. How to find out what's going to be? Okay. Yeah, we'll talk. I never I don't like to play spoiler. Great. That Yeah. So it's ridiculous the week. We'll take a look at the other things, the NBA because the stays in the NBA to get that last spot is going to be very interesting. So You know I'll be discussing bad for so much on your own conclusions to that. Okay. do you ever see to the shadow of the show? The enhanced sport shows Saturday five to seven phone number? Five one, two, five, four, three, four, six, six, two. Thanks for. And we'll talk to you later. That's our boys we in. Yeah. So I mean I do the same about the way football meet. Maybe we'll finally get some some traction on the figured out. Get rid of these. Games and really get that. We're always talking about so. Good seem pages. No not and he mentioned that you know Notre Dame should have been in the big ten or whatever, and and I agree with that I mean. But you gotta you gotTa live with the now I mean the Regional Ping. Is Kinda gone I mean Tennessee's playing Texas saying them and you know rutgers and Maryland or in the big ten I mean the regional things already kind of gotten. Screwed up I mean Colorado's in the PAC twelve I mean it doesn't really make any sense anymore. So yeah. Order to get rid of the NCAA and their their dictatorship of their basically free Labor that they're making money off of if we've got to create these little Pie power conferences that have teams from all over I don't care do you gotta do to to get it right? I agree with you. All right. So who's your number eighteen? Number eighteen is actually one of the I. had him kind of high on my list because. As far as like the greatest running back ever I don't know but he's definitely one of the greatest running backs and he's one of the greatest football players ever in definitely one of the most exciting players to ever watch and that's your boy. Out of southern CAL you know four, forty, four, hundred, yards thirty, eight touchdowns won the two thousand, five heisman but he was so much more than stats I mean he was the best player on the team he could take any play to the house and was just an awesome football player and. I just love watching him play into think this is something that some people don't know. But something that I think about all the time you know he played a high school football and southern California Helix high school his quarterback in school was Alex Smith. And just think about that those two guys in high school team together. Oh. My Gosh that's a lot of talent for a high school squad. Well. My number eighteen is from the same school backed Reggie Bush has my number seventeen but this number eight times with before Reggie Bush and actually kept Marcus Allen on the bench for two years. His name was Charles White. Sixty two, hundred yards, forty nine touchdown passes where you touchdown so. the heisman trophy winner I, mean, it seems like if you played tailback at USC between nineteen, sixty, nine your own to thousands of your your. Predestined to win heisman but Charles White with a phenomenal player didn't work out in the froze. He was one of those guys who four to Cleveland where careers go to die and His his I dare but as far as college career when I'm. Yeah I just missed getting to see him play but. I've seen some tape on him. He looked pretty amazing mine number seventeen is a guy. You may have a little bit higher and probably have them low run by list just due to my bias, but I couldn't leave him off and that's Ron Dane. I mean, the guy let's he definitely had the most carries of anybody that I looked at when I was doing my research the guy carried the Rock Twelve over twelve hundred twenty times but he had over seventy one hundred yards and seventy one touchdown he won the nineteen ninety nine heisman had a decent. NFL. Career I couldn't leave Ron Dane off. I got up at nine A. Yeah. Like you said, seventy one, hundred, hundred, seventy, one touchdowns at phenomenal offensive line in front of them. You know the winning first came out with the giants he was going to be the sundered to barbers lightning but at Wisconsin, there's no, there's no putting down what he did You know the thing about about Wisconsin is I can't really think of a quarterback's is being I equal equal partner I mean it's not like he had a wider you know I don't like liner as a pro and maybe not as number of quarterback. Reggie. Bush. At least had a quarterback that could. Show some kind of a passing game Usually, what do you mean? You're not a believer Jim Sergey. No not not really maybe. Maybe maybe high school career but not his college career. So I. Mean I I don't get it all the great players that have played it Wisconsin and name me one like all big ten first team quarterback I. Don't I. Don't think they've ever had one I can't recall one. I can go back. If Teen Guy I can name you fifteen running backs that we all conference, but I'm not a quarterback. I can give you one, but it's a guy that played their early before I was even born is they run band they're telling in that's. The only reason I know that because I read a book and he was in it like when I was growing up and. I think he led Wisconsin to the Rose Bowl first time in years early in the sixties. Indianapolis actually. End Leave the time I. Don't know if you've heard of. Pollstar state needs. Beings. Yes and His team. At soldier field. And he upset the green. Bay Packers he was a quarterback for the college all stars. So. Read this that game that's only reason the sticks in my mind. So One, they have one guy in a hundred years. Yes. But it's still. Not that not that good a guy. So anyways, we know my was ready Bush. Okay. Who's your next one? what are we are? We are on sixteen. Correct. Correct. Sixteen is actually went with a guy that you had in your honorable mention list and that that was Derrick Henry Just I mean we look at him I mean the guy's just he looks like chase young I mean he's just. A physical specimen. Really when he was there. They almost every season he was there. They had at least two guys that they were kind of you know doing two guys in the backfield and I'm thinking when he was a freshman, it was mark Ingram was there and then he was sharing Kerry's sophomore and junior seasons as well. But I mean still put together over thirty eight, hundred yards and forty two touchdowns I mean the guy was just a monster and ended up going and winning the the heisman trophy. So I had to had to get their can remove boy on the list. I don't blame you a great player not like you said, I mean it. It's it's hard with some of these guys could they wait their turn in a share, the Backfield, and then all of a sudden they give their time in the in the really got really be watching him to catch them all on. So I'm going up. My next guy is going to be sixteen is Monte Ball Wisconsin. Fifty one yards, seventy seven towns, phenomenal. Wisconsin town I mean the worst thing about Wisconsin is kind of feel. You know I. It's almost like Okay Wisconsin back man had a lotta yards did this is that okay so Wisconsin did it but then he never seem to do anything more than that. It's not like they would national championships. Benji of Egypt's I on a consistent basis it's not it's just they've seen that the place where offensive linemen and running backs go to thrive and get contracts in the NFL but Monte ball quality running away while he was there and belongs on my list. I. Agree I mean I I you can't discredit what they do. I mean you can say, Oh, you know they. They don't win national championships whatever but they have won some big ten championships and when they play in the rose. Bowl you know they beat Oregon this past year I mean they always compete and they do they do what they do. You know they're going. To, run the football, you know they're gonNA hand it to Jonathan Taylor you know they're going to hand it to Monty Ball. You know they're going to Brian Calhoun. You know they're going to give it to Ron Dane whatever. But they say lineup we're GonNa do what we do. You do what you do if you can stop us and ninety nine percent of the time you can't. Number. There there they can run the damn football up there. my number fifteen is another USC guy I had to put. Marcus Allen on here. He won the heisman and eighty one like every other USC running back But you know forty, six, hundred, yards, forty, six touchdowns dude was a baller in college and in the pros and is a great guy definitely on the list for top twenty Rhinebeck. got. Marcus. A little higher. Is, up there on my list like I said, he set behind Charles White for two years you know it it was such A. Job, I was A. Young kid watching that in the seventies and it just seemed like it was tailback you and and Marcus Allen was phenomenal player thirty, nine her yards or thirty six sets them in two years. So I had making her yard one year almost need the two thousand mark too. So definitely agree with you. I got him a little bit further on up my next one is gonNA raise some eyebrows because he's so well part of he was a great player in college and he's proven out in the throes although though he's had a little controversy off the field which is affected and a little bit but he he's still eating quality running back now but the redskins and that's Adrian. Peterson. Yard touchdown. People might look at me and say it's a little bit low. But as you see, you'll seem to rest of my listed. It's it's not an insult because like I said, this one of the harder list you can come up with when you think about heisman trophy guys, they're probably relieving off I mean Mark Ingram, you brought him up I was sticking me night and I forgot to put him even in my honorable mentioned so. And Peterson's May number fifteen in I'll stick with him. Yeah he I've got him a little bit higher on mine but you know whatever you wherever you put in these guys, they're all great players. Adrian. Peterson is one of the best football players of all time. There's no doubt about it college football pro football. However, you WanNa cut it the guys what thirty, six, thirty, seven years old, and he's still running people over and if he had an offensive line in front of him, he'd be doing it even better. So Love Adrian Peterson, I've got him on my list to my number fourteen is another guy that probably should have been higher, but I just had to put them where I. Put Him and even though you played at San Diego State He ended up finishing second in the heisman trophy in nineteen, ninety two and when I was a kid which I was ninety two I loved watching this guy playing what Marshall. Faulk you know ran for over forty five, hundred yards fifty seven touchdowns. had had almost a thousand yards receiving to wasn't really a dual threat kind of guy and in college because they didn't have anybody can throw the ball but he was just unbelievable and had to put him at fourteen because I had to put them somewhere and when it was just unreal running back. Yeah. I haven't further on up I just remember him. I like you said, San Diego state the aspects I mean. Like you said, there wasn't a lot of stuff around him and. They still could stop them I mean phenomenal player ever see his senior year. There was this clip played I. Think the first three weeks you'd like to back to back to back role where I remember it was Randall Cunningham and watching him and it was like was just giving the hyper. Now he was that good talented that time but unfortunately, it didn't get the is. But. We saw the pros. He was well worth anybody's time in. The nominal player. You'll see where now I, think he's up in my top ten. So we'll get him on my nice little. Were there see my next move is going to be ended Smith. So go back to you who's your guest number thirteen? Thirteen is lt Damian Tomlinson Nine, hundred, ninety three carries. What's that? I got him there to. Do you owe. Well, then we can talk about him a little bit I mean unbelievable. He kinda put Tcu on the map nobody really knew I mean Gary Patterson's done very respect job and and TCU's been competing at a high level for the last ten or twelve years. But it all started with Thomas and he put that team on the map he made them a team. In Texas people had to account for I mean fifty, three, hundred, eighty, seven yards, six touchdowns. He finished fourth in the heisman. In two thousand. He was actually up for the house in a couple of times in the top ten but fourth was the highest guy. But I mean he was just unbelievable one of the greatest running backs of all time in college and the pro's. Say. He was Kinda get a lot of Walter Payton him. He could do everything could blocks catch passes he could run. He said he was a you know we haven't seen Diego with his best years. The worst than you could say about him is the fact that Sandiego you backup game and didn't win enough to where you really got to see him. Every time all the time unless you had to write, you know there they're red zone package or stuff like that. You see them highlight films that they would have been nicer to see him. Maybe get you know what a super bowl or Gatsby a national. The national promising desert, he got a lot a town hall of Famer without without question. He's got a lot of respect throughout football but my God when God made football Daniel Thomason. The mold. So He's right there and go my number twelve has been done away with Marcus Allen. So who's your number twelve? Twelve I have the guy you had in your on your honorable mention that Eddie George I just. I you know. What can you say about it? He George Man I mean just one of the hardest working guys. In the business i. mean he just grind it Wasn't much couldn't do from running back. He could block he could run outrun people I mean he was a huge guy but really fast for how big was and ended up finishing his career with thirty over thirty, seven, hundred yards and forty four touchdowns ran his way to the heisman in nineteen, ninety five and just one of the greatest. Ohio State Buckeyes of. All Time. All right. So you got Marcus and your next one we'd be eleven. I believe we're at eleven. Yeah Eleven. Yes sir. That was your eleven. That was my. Eddie George was my number twelve. Okay. Because we my Gun market already. Miles. Peterson. Okay. So he's done him. So I'll go with my eleven. Then comes from the same college they Adrian Peterson a little bit earlier flashy as they come baby the back of the Barry, Switzer era met Billy Sims billy sims was just a phenomenal running back at speed. To burn dramatic, feel thirty, five, hundred, yards, forty, five touchdowns in you know playing for that multiple that wish going attack of Oklahoma where he just share the ball a lot says a lot of billion I I just love watching him run when he was at Oklahoma for the sooners Even though it's hard to root for sooner various with. made it made it were my day. No doubt he was kind of a little tiny bit before my time but I've heard the stories and I've seen the tape, the guy, the guy was phenomenal and I'm not a huge. I was not a big huge Oklahoma fan back in the day. But I gotta give respect to him my number nine I think is where where are we? Right. Now. We're ten. Yeah. Ten is another guy from Texas. It seems like we're we're hitting the the old southwest conference a lot here, and that's because they just they did they had some of the best running backs and this guy was of the best running backs of all time in college and the pros, and that was Eric Dickerson from smu seven, hundred, ninety, Russia's forty, four, hundred yards forty seven touchdowns finished third in the heisman and eighty two was the number two draft pick coming out in the first round and. Just man that that team, the the Mustang's there I mean I know they were they were getting paid. Dickerson was driving around is Transam, and you know these guys were making more in college than they were in the pros but who cares I mean they were so fun to watch and he was just such an unbelievable running back. Everybody was like Oh his his upright styles never gonNA work and he's GonNa get hurt and he just kind of laughed at him and and just ran over or by anybody that tried to tackle him. and. You know he is my exact number ten. It's yourself and other thing is you got to remember his he had those yards and he had Craig James in the in the same backfield cranking out just many ours almost yes. I. Mean. You think about that I mean the Pony Express Back Heel Greg, James in an Air Dickerson I mean phenomenal running back running a phenomenal. Team unfortunately, like you said, it was Martin scandal eventually but I mean. What can you say I? Mean that's what happens in college. Sports Everybody gets a little pink somewhere along the way, but it doesn't take away from the kind of player he was. So Eric Dickerson is my number ten is well, my number nine was Ron Dane. So we'll skip right to your number nine. My number nine is Earl Campbell earl the Pearl seven, hundred, sixty, five carries forty, four, hundred yards forty touchdowns won the heisman trophy in seventy seven we've all seen the tape man, the Guys Jersey would get ripped off I mean dues would be hanging on him and earl would just keep on running unfortunately, he never seemed to go out of bounds and that's why you know he has so much trouble getting around these days but oh my gosh I he just was a powerhouse and You know when I think about Texas football I think about Earl Campbell and what he did when he was there. Before where definitely wasn't a little bit higher I list but are always an unstoppable for some. You know he was one of those guys that. You could. You could run you over your run past you. He was just a rare combination of the power and the speed, and like you said, I don't know how many shirts he went through a game but I'm sure it's a record of the SEC good and I'm sure there's there's absolutely the place right girl went home with just moved to that on. The tower roses death in a list. for my number eight. Unfortunately Right now, he's a controversial figure in American history You'll get mine for Mary's the. I really great USC. Back. For two years he would then the best running back in the history of the NFL of the NCAA A lot of people's time will tell you. Thirty. Two. OJ Simpson. when he was at USC when he's been in and actually putting John Mackay's USC on the map, he was like the Mike Garrett before, but they still were not the team they needed to be and then. McKay wanted to beat Notre Dame so bad he went out and got OJ Simpson, the top junior college runner from San Francisco in. Notre Dame would have a tough time beating. The Trojan. mctavish. O. J. Simpson, his mind number A. Yeah My number eight is staying right there in Texas and that's a ricky. Williams. I had to I had to include him. I just will never forget watching ricky, run a run ricky run I mean the dude was just unbelievable seventy, two touchdowns I mean. Broke out his freshman year that last game of the season ran for two hundred, forty something yards and just ever since then we've all remembered ricky, Williams and how great he was and you know I like we said misunderstood maybe didn't have the career that everybody thought. He should. But he had some great seasons even at the end there when he was playing for the Ravens, he's still could run the football and I will never forget watching ricky run the football and you know smoke a little grass I don't care I still like the guy and he wanted to high trophy and will always be remembered. you mean the one thing I do wish he I think he probably would even say he wished she could go back and change was the wedding dress dicap- quota. Bad. I can't get. My head now that you said that I really wish hadn't done that and I bet he wishes to. Rodman in the wedding dress. Okay. My next one Marshall Faulk with my number eight, we've done that we what was ricky or eight or seven. Ricky was eight for me. Array so We did OJ Marshall Faulk would be my next one. WHO's your number two would do. Would you number say? I'm on seven seven Tony Dorsett one of the greatest running backs in college football history hands down held the rushing record for years sixty, five, hundred, yards fifty, nine touchdowns. One, one, the seventy, six, heisman just unbelievable in the college ranks as well as for the cowboys put Pittsburgh football on the map and man I just love Tony Dorsett. Tony Little bit higher up on my list. I'll go I'll I'll give you my estimation him in a little while but as we are now we're up a number six I believe for you. Number six. Six. Tony was seven six. I've got doak Walker. smu Back in the. Di D D Walk I mean they named the you know the best football the best running back every year is called. The doak. Walker award in. That's that's for a reason I mean even as freshmen in this is back when freshman didn't get to play. But for some reason in nineteen forty, five he was able to play five games in one was able to get the. all southwest conference on honors and then played you know went to the army came back forty seven won the won the Maxwell Award and then forty eight. He won the heisman trophy I mean he was one of the first great running backs and I had to put him up there because that's that's what running backs strive to do is when the Doak Walker Award. Yeah. It's amazing when you see those guys interrupted your college career to. Serve our country and came back and still we're able to complete their careers and tyrod was in the backfield with him if I remember right and Smu a hell of the team back then I didn't using my my list. But like you said, if they named the award after you gotta be pretty good, it's like you know I think cy young with a pretty, damn good pitcher. Know Down to kick. My number six guy is you know I love this guy in the pros although I'm not I don't WanNa see overrated. But I. He he surpassed the guy a lot of credit for in the NBA actually held the rushing title Y'all rushing title for. Awhile. And he was phenomenal flashy back and. Amazing speed amazing movie opens the Barry Sanders You know that one year ran for almost three thousand yards for two touchdowns for Oklahoma state. I mean speaks volumes of the type of player he was He you know the thing about Barry Sanders was I mean I I I just I just I respect them I loved watching them play but. I. Always thought there was a bit of a better back to him. So changing my. View of him in the pros but as far as a college back, he's definitely in my top just a little bit outside the top five. Well. Yeah, and if you remember, he played behind Thurman Thomas and split carries with him and so just to think about what he didn't college having to having to sit behind Thurman and share carries with them there for a couple of years it's unbelievable and You can't really talk about You know who the best running back all time is without mentioning my number five and that's Jim Brown I mean I know I still think he's the greatest one of the greatest football players of all time and you know even though he was playing to sports at Syracuse he was an All American in nineteen, fifty, six, he ran for over nine hundred and eighty six yards in games He like you said got snubbed the heisman trophy when Paul Horneck one even though. The. Irish were had a losing rock record, but you know had that one game against colgate where he ran for one hundred and ninety seven yards and six touchdowns and lots of people don't remember. But Jim Brown was also the kicker for Syracuse and made seven extra points to score total of forty three points by himself in that game. So you can't can't talk about the greatest running backs in college without putting on the Jim. Brown there. Yeah I know I. Haven't seen them play but I mean, definitely he definitely I mean it'd be number one. You could be number one I mean to remember threes, and before he's definitely the best players ever might number five guy. Hey Bo knows. Bo Jackson Auburn forty three hundred yards forty three touchdowns. The legend of go. Oh, there's no bigger legend in the south. Didn't Bo Jackson and maybe bigger sports legend in. America. I'd say maybe Mohammed Ali and Michael Jordan. When you talk about American athletes Jim Thorpe I. mean he is mentioned in everybody's argument as the greatest athlete of all time in. American. History and bows just. What a player is it what if that gift didn't get injured in that game against Cincinnati who might have been in the hall of fame and both Canton and? Down I mean he had. He was he was probably the best players ever played those two sports at the same time. So my man was. Yeah. He was Derrick Henry before Derrick Henry, I mean just a big huge man but was also the fastest guy in the field a lot of times. So it was pretty amazing and you know I I loved watching Bo play and I actually have him as my number three number four is Barry Sanders and we already talked about him but I had to put him in my top five as well. So four as Berry. Sanders and then my number three is Bo Jackson so. Might number four, zero Campbell mind number three. Is That guy out of Georgia Herschel Walker. fifty, two, hundred, yard, forty, nine touchdowns His Freshman Sophomore year when he came when he turned the NCAA on its on its year its collective year, there was talk when he when he was a freshman of winning per heisman and. The first time. I ever saw him was a famous game against Florida where with the big passed from duck blue to Lindy Scott to win it But Herschel was the man who really put him on his back and helped them Vince Dooley get his national championship at Jordan Herschel Walker Maybe throw career didn't turn out to be the greatest thing in the world drive best known for being the centerpiece of that trade that with the Dallas cowboys back in a mess and maybe that's a good enough reason not to like. But I liked him Georgia and also like yeah. Is One of my favorite Benjamin, Franklin but blue, what's the better college football in that? You can't beat it. It's like a sore one. You cannot beat it and I actually had Herschel Walker as my number two also just because of the guy could still play. He's what like fifty six years old and he's still does five hundred push ups and five hundred sit ups a day. I mean the guy is just an absolute beast and you know they. It was like a it was like was contemplating sec per year The guy The guy knew everybody knew getting the ball, but he just was so strong and so fast and so powerful they they couldn't stop him. So I had to have Herschel Walker by number two also. Okay. My number two is GonNa make you proud and you're gonNA eat prob your number one He I mean the only two time heisman trophy winner. Archie. Griffin. phenomenal player to type is a trophy where it just seems. Crazy to be able to say that you've dominated football for two straight years and I. You know the young player are not young player as a younger. Saying back then so I know the players he was going up against and the Michigan teams and the dude teams and you know th the winning against USC I mean. The guys are playing for USC. You're there were no were no slouches either and he was dominating heisman trophy balloting and so I go with Archie Griffin might number two guy. Yeah no great pick and that is number one I made and I and obviously I'm biased. But let's be honest. There's been a lot of great guys. That have played college football and as me and you love college football. We'd love all these great players I love going through these lists and getting to hear your opinions and my opinions about these guys and just getting back to go get into, go back and watch the film and look at the stats and just sift through 'em is spun is can be for me but the thing that really jumped out for me, I mean to heisman trophies all the games that he won all the national championship he won for woody, Hayes and all of that. The one thing that really jumped out for me at at as far as Archie Griffin is the consistency, let's talk about thirty one straight games thirty one in case you folks who are out there and radio land can't hear me thirty one straight games with one hundred yards. Nobody else has ever come close to doing that, and that just shows the type of runner he was, and this was before you know the Buckeye nation started throwing the football a whole lot. They knew they were running the ball but this guy still ran for over a hundred yards and hit the century Mark Thirty one times and I had to had to put him as number one because he just. You know pro career didn't work out just exactly how maybe a lot of Buckeye fans would hope for but. Definitely one of the greatest college football players of all time in thirty one games where he ran for a hundred yards in a row. Guy, my number one you mentioned down on your list already I got to see his whole for years it it. Tony Dorsett four years over a thousand yards When he showed up on the campus pit became a national power they didn't. Yeah. I, mean, I think Billy Daniels the name of his quarterback. Thing that cabinet on May have been there for a little bit of it I mean he didn't have a lot of talent around him or say and the kid came out. Any like they used to joke used to be whenever he played at Notre Dame during for years, they wouldn't cut the grass to try and slow him down I mean. Just. Like that to direct in hosted, slowing him down because he was just so fast there was just nobody in in in any great pro-career to I mean he luckily wanted to a great team I mean he luckily got drafted by the Dallas Cowboys and one super bowl with them there, and of course, was a perennial thousand yard rusher with them but td I mean the great in the initials td that. Better than running backs Oh. My God I mean but you know the worst thing in putting together this list. I still go on and on I mean I'm proud of the list I put begin. Together. But I mean, there are there are teams we didn't I I mean I I couldn't come up with a couldn't find room for a Penn State Back Michigan back. Lay back. Notre Dame back I. Mean. There's so many great runners out there. But they're just the top twenty is is is it's if there's you've just gotta put those guys in there I'm proud of both are picks I think we we we covered it all I think so far we've been we've been hitting the mark with our fix here. So proud about that now we got to. Go. Ahead. And now we got we got some great names on here, but there's you know there's so many unbelievable running backs out there. There's dudes that we didn't even talk about that. That could be on this list I mean Anthony Thomas at Indiana I mean Indiana football not a a big history that guy won the Maxwell Award and was one of the greatest players in college football for several years and and he played at Indiana. So I mean there's guys that we didn't even mention out there but but what fun to get to go back and go through these great runners. I just saw I just got a text from Alex home it'll be changing and. Becoming on a few minutes. So we'll finish up our NCAA portion of this and bring him on for the NFL portion like store touch an top one, hundred list when he gets here. To. See Beginning score days Let's see. WE GOT NEW ORLEANS SIXTY SIXTY OVER UTAH. the Yankees. Baltimore's within a run running the Yankees five four. Oh. Oh. It's only the spending now. You. Remember that senator to nothing Boston's over the mets three to thank you mets for ruining my name. In. Kansas City Detroit are tied at two and plant leaves Tampa Bay to nothing. So that's the scoreboard so far as the NBA comes upon US along with Baseball, and looking forward to I'm I'm definitely looking forward to hockey we get as I said, I bought my package. So I, gotta see workings are going to be interesting to watch Saturday and Sunday and another reason I really look forward to I. Really WanNa see ice skating and people having to wear more than shorts and a tee shirt because I'm getting kind of sick heatwave is driving me crazy up there I'm I'm a North Eastern guy and The hotter to summer. More mid Wyoming I usually get here here that would are fans out there. So you helped you to the weather. Yeah come on down to Tennessee for a little while buddy we haven't gone below eighty seven since I can remember and you know it's eighty seven going on about one hundred forty degrees Celsius with the humidity down here and you know one of the reasons I love college football is that's when the fall bigly ends and I can start to read outside once. Again, so yeah, I'm with you I. I I just watching people skate around the ice is going to be pretty cool and I I did get we. We talked on Tuesday a little bit about my reds and they they came out last night and sunny grey pitched another gym. I mean the guy had ten strikeouts and seven innings was hitting ninety four. Ninety five and was throwing the ball exactly where he wanted to. So really nice to see the guy that me and it's talked about a little bit Nikki send zeal came up came back from having some symptoms Kobe didn't he tested negative so got to play last night and had two hits had a home run and also had a double. And drove in another run. So he played pretty good and casinos Got It. Got Another grant had a grand slam. So starting to hit the ball down in Cincinnati and with a maybe a true ace and Sunny Gray I've been just blown away by how he's been pitching in his first two starts and starting off to know is a real good sign from reds. Is, so funny when you think about sunny great how he failed with the Yankees you know you would think you know pressure would be off of Mitchell would that kind of a lineup behind you knowing mean for most of the last twenty years at least with the Yankees going back to the mid nine I mean not to put down or put on the Yankee pitchers but I mean any pet at one almost three hundred or two hundred games with a plus for five Vr, a I mean and the Yankees. Have had a line of submitted ninety that could put five or six runs up. So to see this guy grey struggling like he did in the Bronx and now finding himself. In Cincinnati where you have to pay as well. I, it just boggles my mind. is so covered too. When you think about a hitter default part related there you know. Let's. Tenders Bar hitter of ballpark. You to be so much more relaxed in the Bronx in in so much more under pressure in Cincinnati but is the exact opposite I guess maybe he's just not built to pitch in the bright lights of Broadway or appended race and I'm going to bring Alex right now he's He's chiming at the bit in the bullpen. So we'll bring him in for to be part of our closing segment as we get to talk back about NFL. Allegations. My brother. I Miss I. Miss You like no other brother Yeah. No we actually. Like to raise were brick were brand new with kids from West. Haven to Stanford we we mix it up with an ECLECTIC melting pot of players and yet we just one twelve, three against the established. Established Newark New York Yankees like we just rolled up on people. I'm so happy my my team kids were are. They worked on. It was awesome. Well, that's what makes. It doesn't make coaching fun when you see a workout on the field for you, that's great did. Someone. Young Joe in it and so much and note and You got always on point as always no no. Big shocker. Yes. Sonny. Gray man. He was not built for the Bronx. Some people don't like the spotlight. Some people don't WanNa play them as. Some people don't want to be a Yankee, thirty days. He's a very county guy he's built. For kind of a soft like not I don't recall soft but kind of a a different you know mid West five starting grades one of the top ten pitches the world. So. Yeah. I agree. got that. You know what I'm saying you know you know. I'm not gonNA miss a dirty name. Some people just aren't built to the Bronx. Hey Man, it's all about the environment here men and it's all about it's all about the mental aspect of it a lot when you're pitching but the guy's got the stuff. If you watch the game last night, I was throwing ninety four, ninety, five miles an hour exactly where he wanted to his fastball was moving his breaking ball was down around eighty, four, eighty, five. So He's dropping at ten miles an hour in breaking ball looked exactly like the fastball. So when it comes out of his hand these all these. All these cubs batters were thinking. It's a fastball and they're swinging as fast as they can the ball's not even there yet because he was mixing it up so well. So you know didn't do the greatest in New York but let's not take away from the kind of this guy has he can. He can throw Brady he's got multiple pitches. He's really good talent, and if he can keep this going the reds have data shot. You know. It doesn't make you better or someone worse a better than near you or Joe or anyone receiver anyone you know he he feels he does at home in the Mid West and never. A couple. Begs to the question is you know? Is it the Yankee fans? Is the way of doing things is you know? House to house their new. If he has a couple bad outings there to. Worry, about fans now. But when the New York press's, that's the problem I mean it's really weird that that you know you would maybe to concentrate more maybe the factory relax too much with the Yankees but it's funny and I I just I hate to to buy into the New York myth of you know the pressure of New York tearing up players because. The the pressure just to get to the major leagues and and to compete. So I. Just I decided very weird doing and when you see this contract, the guy was a star out in Oakland. Bad in the Bronx. Now, he's GonNa Start. Again since the oranges anatomy and in China makes no sense to me and it would it wouldn't hurt me to if the mets don't make it all the way through to see Sonny. Gray for a couple of shutouts and busted Yankee bubbles that would that wouldn't be bad for me I know you guys. I would take. That's a that's a great point. Show you know You, dial it back. You brought me back to reality I'm always the awesome and maybe it's not him. Maybe it's not the best place for him. Now you're right it's not these guys for royal. It's not their first high school. Dan. They've been to the show before you know you're right. He starts by New York. I but I I still I honestly honestly I'll bet she chuckle two minutes. I honestly think that guy is built for somewhere not New York so I really. That certain certain players are not built for New York. I duNNo. took. The change of scenery change of scenery you can really help guys sometimes and I think you know I think it brought him down back down to Earth a little bit just struggling a little bit in New York and it just made him focus that much more and I could tell on opening day that he wanted to prove that he was that picture that was out in Oakland Strike and people out left and right and that's always done so far since he's been thrown on the mound for the reds, he's just been striking people out and just being almost dominate out there for the what else. They started me what what money Greens contract is. He is he on lock for like three years is a one year deal. I'd have to look on that I. Think I think. It's more than one. I think they locked him up for at least three or four. Okay Before we were where we're GONNA. Look at Alex before we again because I don't know if you missed like part of the game of the show when I saw I, WanNa see anyone who cover anything before we get into. WE'RE GONNA take a quick. At the NFL top one, hundred list of top twenty players as voted by their peers just lost the last hour. We're GONNA. Do that get our opinions on that? Is there anything else you wanted to cover before we get into that? No then dies I'm the party and love like everyone. So let's take on. All right wouldn't We'll do it. Let's start from number one The MVP. So it's hard to go against him Lamar Jackson number one as voted by his. Not Surprising to me. was going to be surprising comes after that. What do you guys think about? Lamar Jackson, do you think he has the game to keep this up at this level or the flash in the PAN? An. Rg Three. Without injury I'm saying, but you think Lamar Jackson got the the game to keep getting giving some of the top of this list. Yeah I mean. The one knock on Mars you know people some people think he can't throw the football, but that's that's not true Lamar Jackson could throw the football and college and he can throw the football in the pros. The one thing that I. Kinda worried about with him was how can he read defenses Can You? Can? You can you? Go off that I second read and find the third guy that was the other thing that I worried about with Lamar. But let's be honest. Last year he was the best player on the football field for the entire sixteen games. Let the Ravens a fourteen and two record I know they struggled a little bit against the titans but the titans have a good defense and they had a really good game plan but. He's proven that he can run the ball he can run the offense he can hit the open receiver and he's just going to get better as he goes on I mean the guy's gotta live arm he can. He can throw the ball with the rest of them and if they can keep you know running running an offense that is built around his strength. I don't see any reason why he can't keep doing it. Yeah I totally I thought it was made You know you never WANNA be like. Go over that time when third and one we saw what happened Cam we saw. Him. I. Know. Eagles Eagles Lord No. You can't put up you get hurt Lamar smart and like. Athletes that. He's not just a scramble. I Joe. Player I would say he and Patrick the future I mean, that's what I got. I, I totally agree with you bows Lynette an ad issue but I mean Pat Mahomes, they got rated as number four. By his peers. Would you really? Kinda shocked me because the number two guy that got his Russell Wilson never go do anything at Russell Wilson Total respect for the guy he's shown Rum's decade that he's one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL he's got a gun he knows how to play the game he no one run. Veteran Russell Wilson little surprise it. He number two ahead of PAT. Mahomes. And that MOMS is behind him in Erin Darnold Donald So. I don't know. How you look at those three players why is happened homes? Behind those two I would put in great behind Lamar Jackson I don't know about you guys. Let me. Let me grumpy out here. We'll hear man. I I'll be from you know kids, cities, all the people that drum. Yeah I. Don't that does not make sense to me. My home is not only humble guy he's the leader. I don't know where you go if you did not get injured. He could he could be. The Best quarterback in twenty years now I don't know. No I I think he's the best he proved. He's the best player in football I mean the he led the I mean, don't get me wrong. Steve's Magnolia. Figure things out. He's a really good defensive coordinator and he made that city defense at least respectable going down the stretch I mean you don't win the Super Bowl unless you can at least stop somebody. So their defense got better but Patrick Mahomes, the reason that the chiefs you know that they want they've got a good team that got Andy Reid is the coach he's got some weapons. With tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins and the Travis Kelsey and the boys. But let's be honest if you go back and watch those games they've won because Pat Mahomes his creativity is playmaking ability his arms, his legs he's he's the he's the total package. He's the best player in the NFL in my opinion I think Lamar Jackson had an unbelievable season. He's really good I think like I said I think he can keep doing it but pat mahomes is the real deal and he's the number one player in the NFL in anybody's list or should be. And one of the, neither of your brought would be brought up. He did most of last year on one leg. Between me and. The toughness he showed I mean that kneecap injury would have kept mostly people out six weeks and he would he we? Yes Joe Joe just to build on your point just sheer fortitude like a level of of no fear. Let's go. He was rising and rapid regular at around pain and what the next day throwing spirals I mean that guy is so tough. Strong. Guy In a player character. That's mom did. He dislocated his KNEECAP and You know he was available two weeks later I mean they they kept him out I. Think Three Games at least But he was there and stayed on the sidelines. You know two weeks later and just the fact that he did that shows that he wants to play in that he loves the game and and with his kind of talent the the sky is the limit for that guy. All right. Number five they got Michael Thomas and nobody would go against him as a wide receiver. But, The number five, the little fly from Waco. Thomas here with is there somebody else you'd expect to see a higher than him? It'll high for wide receiver Michael Thomas. May Go for Yeah no I mean he's a Buckeye. So I, I love him. But I mean wide receiver as far as wide receivers goes I think he is the best wide receiver in the game I mean setting records kidding catching passes I mean didn't matter who was back there. Is Teddy Bridgewater. It didn't matter as long as they threw the ball out somewhere near where Michael Thomas is. He got it done. I think he's a top five player in the NFL he's definitely paid like he is the only thing you could maybe you know make an argument that maybe drew brees or somebody like that could could be up ahead of and drew brees is back down there twelve. So I think I think he's a top five player and I think right behind him you know Christian McCaffrey and I think Michael Thomas and Christian McCaffrey those are definitely two guys that could be MVP's in this league and have the talent to do it. Real quick I mean my coupons. You know sexy is one way model all all the guy does show up on Sundays and catch thirteen balls run hundred, fifty yards the guy that's not drop I mean what does the elastic on and he doesn't drop a cat guys. So officiant, he's quietly incredible player, but I love that. McCaffrey agree with six? That's a good thing. But here's another one I've found controversial number seven because there's two guys I could see that are as equals and maybe better and that's George Kittles. As number seven, I mean, at Travis Chelsea. I would have put over him. I know that Alex is rated jumping 'cause boy urges them there. A little you guys attacked what do you agree with Kittles or Joe Kills in bits of at seven? Go for from about the no. I mean Georgia, great tight end and You know he may be the most complete tight end because he really is great blocker and I, like his game but I think that seven is pretty Dang high especially for Thai dead. How can you? WE'VE DERRICK HENRY DOWN AT number ten and put Georgia tiddle at seven. I mean you take George kiddle out of the lineup for the forty niners and yeah, you're going to see it is the run game going to be affected maybe is their passing. Game GonNa hurt a little bit. Yup. But if you take Derrick Henry off of that titans team, you're looking at, you know six and twelve team or a six and ten teen I mean Derrick Henry is the reason that the titans made it as far as they did Derrick Henry is the reason that the titans beat the Patriots beat the Baltimore, Ravens in Baltimore beat new. England in New England and then had a two touchdown lead on the super bowl chance in Kansas City he's. He's one of the best players in the NFL it's not. In the NFL I just think you gotta put their Ken re somewhere near the top five if not in the top five I just it right now as far as last season goes if you look at it, there Kendrick dominated even when everybody knew he was getting the ball. Brilliant I mean to build on that I mean that's a great way to look at the other day styles back looks to Wasser so like. If you take him out of office, the titans baby or her six win. Five Win No kill out. Matters are GonNa be the niners they'd beat up on assault teams out west the most of the big. So. Derrick Henry would be much more. Than, a tourist I kid overall I know Joe you you poke me I. Love You right back. Yeah I'm I'm I'm an urge Guy Decker block, it's not The world he doesn't he's not a complete tie that he he's he's he's a you know a bigger wide receiver pretty much. They hired him uncertain fourth without. He's not he's not mind walking of it. Kindle I. The best in the world is trying to tell I mean that's what I mean. Hey I'm the. I agree with you there. The next to guys wearing Travis Kelsey he what eighteen on this list I mean Y- think about things he did last year he won some games. All I'm self and You know the reason they came back and beat the Texan if you go back and watch that game when the Texans were up what twenty four To nothing Travis Kelsey was the reason that they were able to get know with with obviously Patrick Mahomes but I mean Travis Kelsey was just dominating. He's a problem for any safety to cover. He's a problem for any corner to cover and to not Travis Kelsey his do I think is ridiculous. The guy is just he's an unbelievable football player he's A. And Real quick conclusion on Travis. That guy's a Leader you know he he passes homes, wives hang out like they're like best buds. So. Crucial I mean that I Saw You know if If I, better circle or. The traffic comes about implant. Well especially, when you look at it kills in Hopkins Than Gilmore. I. Think. All of them have been dropped down I mean and then Audrey ahead of Derrick Henry I. I I'm not quite sure how nick feels about their can read kind of like waiver little. FEEL THEY I'm not afraid to admit it. I was talking talked and yell that I love Derrick Henry and if you go back and you watch the tape. Tennessee titans down the stretch and you come back and you tell me that Derrick Henry wasn't the damn reason that they won all those games. Then I'll ask you to explain why. I think about it. If you look at him the second half of the year, you could really. If you could have been the MVP two week I mean I mean. Lamar Jackson get to such a big lead earlier especially with that six touchdown game he had that he had to grow the Kinda ran away and hid, but there cannery the MVP for probably five on. So yeah I definitely agree with you there you know Julio. Jones. Couldn't do a whole lot when he was standing on the sidelines watching Derrick Henry run teammates over and step on there. As he was marching. For his two hundred plus yard and most touchdowns I mean, let's be honest you. You can't even get on the field when Derrick Henry toting the rock though. Basketball soccer off your crop. They seem more sticky all the. Henry was dominating people use he not love your team gets the ball there was a man boys. A top player come work outside. Yeah I mean. The definitely sure I mean I don't see these these picks this with either where we're list just caught my eye because I mean number eleven believe accounts no one ever take anything away from but number eleven in Germany's number twelve. Wagner number thirteen brady number fourteen Aaron Rodgers who Aaron Rodgers had a good year last year ball. He's been kind of shaky and then you put Nikko said Seventeen and Travis Kelsey and eighteen. I mean, it just makes. Sense that it takes away the liberty of this this list, those two both and Kelsey should definitely be tough tin really five pushed the other guys back down. Yeah. Tell seen I mean I like Chandler Jones out in Arizona but let's be honest they want five games and Travis Kelsey won the Super Bowl. So who is more important in this league I mean I, and also if you look at Cardio Mac I think Khalil Mack is more of a game changer than Chandler. Jones is I mean I don't I. Don't think the defense is sit up at or that offense to sit up at night worrying about Chandler Jones the way they do know Khalil Mack I mean Khalil Mack is unblocked. Right. Yeah, I mean I. Drove Joe Gimme a hot second on Air Rogers wake me up to Janika PAT to. Legal. Yeah, I, know whenever called color me whatever amodio saying no I've never weeded up at night. Worried in woke up nervous about Aaron Rodgers he never just not perform plus I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Eddie always says. Not Hey hey it's not my fault. You kind of. Grin and look I. I'm not a Airbrush Fan. I'm not an Enron stamp. And You GotTa give them the reason he's on his downside. He's under downsize career I mean but. You know go back for years ago three years ago he was a guy. He didn't want to have the ball with under three minutes left in the game because I've seen him break a lot of arts winning when you packed any doesn't have it anymore. mean. He say if you're going to look at this list, I mean the thing is we're coming down to the end of the show and I want to go over Lamar Jackson. Pat Mahomes Joey Bosa Derrick Henry I would've gone and then Russell Wilson that would have been my top five. If I was speaker with these guys got they're all younger players often do their new wave of the NFL and then like you said, maybe bring Khalil Mack into like the six slot tells people I mean I I just I look at this list and it's it's kind of like I some of it is kind of a joke I mean Michael, Thomas Top ten McCaffrey blooms top ten maybe not half can so much anymore I don't know about Stefan, Gilmore the top ten. No. Way of agreed defensive back but I mean he. You know Dionne. No I don't I. Don't think he's dirty shutdown corner. He's not a shutdown corner I? mean. He's a good cover corner but let's be honest. He looks a lot better in that in that bill belichick defense than he did playing for the bills and let's talk about Malcolm Butler I mean Greg I was he was a shutdown corner for the Patriots in that Bill Belichick defense and then you take him in, throw them on the titans and it does not look the same so. I I'm I like Stefan Gilmore. But I'm not I'm not one hundred percents sold that he's a top ten player. Where but Joe, there's no ways belongs in that on top ten. Privilege and honor there's no way that need. I'm sorry I'll take on the eagles tomorrow trust me I'll driving the airport. But I'll pick them up but like no, there's no way up cat come on. But that's where these lists you know when you. Become popularity contests I remember for years you get the MLB list and again believe me everybody knows how much I don't like the Yankees. But you have people rating Derek Jeter as the most overrated player in baseball and. Maybe say into a point that he was. I dare cheer was on a different team is this the we might not have been the star of the magnitude he was in New York. City. Because was the president for three thousand hits and everything else he did speaks for itself. So I mean a lot of these lists it's speaks against about you know professional jealousy and stuff I don't know how you feel about it but those. The. ME A lot of. Guys. You know what you know obviously I I I. I. I wake up and go to bed I live in came ask but no you you can love. And a Lotta people or things. And then I grew up and I respected. People. So Jesus someone who respects. I'M NOT GONNA I'm not, GONNA WAKE UP, in jeered jersey, but I respect. You jeeter top. To. Put. Your typical either. Do you think a top ten? I'm sorry. Three four south long time or. Overall. I mean, let's be honest the game dude I mean he had the pressure on him from day one and he loved it thrives on it. He's the opposite of Sunny. Gray you wanted to play in New York he loved playing in New York, and you know let's be honest when when it came down to it if there was a runner on and the Yankees were now you know tied. He. Would get hit and it just shows. You know like that lasts a bad hitting that home run I mean maybe the Guy Group that I. Don't know but you can't take your jeeter. Did He He had an amazing career might not be the greatest shortstop of all time but he got he did what he had to do out on the field fielding ground balls and he got the big hits when he needed to you know I'm no. Fan Overall but he did he did get it done. He's not great at is being an owner. James Dole's Jim Sullivan up. He's not authorized. All right we're coming up to the end of the game of the show. Tonight we're going into the weekend when I'm GonNa, give you Alex since you were here. Let me give you the last word we got about a minute gives a last word on what bothering you would you like it about sports and and then we'll say our goodbyes and editor weekend.

Changing the Game

JP Arencibia

"This is. This is changing the game Howard by functional remedies Endo sport, the leading hemp oil for professional and amateur athletes alight. This podcast trumpets, the value of being fit living, a healthy lifestyle and positioning yourself to be oh, you can be for as long as you will be today. Our guest is J P, Aaron CBS, the university of Tennessee, the long-awaited first major league at bat, I pick swinging Aaron CVS. Former professional catcher for the Tampa Bay rays, the Texas Rangers and the Toronto Blue Jays and today JP's an analyst for the Miami Marlins pre and post game on Fox Sports Florida and he joins us from south Florida JP welcome to changing the game. Thank you for having appreciate the invite. Well hits an interesting thing. J P. I remember not too many years ago players used to come to spring training to get in shape. I mean they'd come in ten fifteen twenty pounds, overweight, and they used February and March to whittle it away to taper down. So they'd be ready on opening day. Boy, that's ancient history. Now, isn't it? Yeah. No doubt. I think nowadays, I mean, guys spend so much money in the offseason, whether it be, you know, having a chef or in nutrition in general, and then as far as straightened conditioning, I think everybody's trying to find the edge the, the crazy thing I think is everybody. There's a lot of trainers that are trying to reinvent the wheel. So it's I mean, it's something that it's big and every time he come to spring training, right? The first thing you do is you get on the body, fat machine, the Bod pot, or you get the pinch test. And in other measuring in how much percentage you've you've lost over the offseason, where are you at and that, you know, those are those are things I go against you if you come in shape. And by the way, it's a competitive game you don't wanna be the fat tubby guy showing up at spring training. Do you know an and honestly because then because then it's it becomes a character flaws. Well, that's what teams look at it, you know, your professional and anytime you do anything as a professional, you come in there. In your overweight, they're going to question that professionalism is this guy really committed. Is this guy somebody that we wanna sign to a long-term deals, this guy, somebody who we want, you know in the playoffs, and who we can trust not just on the field but off the field? And that's you know, those little the little things that go into it. And then again, if you're competing for a spot in one guy comes in, in better shape than you, the, you're ready kind of a little bit behind the eight ball. So I mean, that's something I you know, I always took huge pride in making sure that I came back. I was never this. You know, I was a catcher, so I needed to carry body fat for a hundred sixty two games. I was never. I was always somebody that tried to come in, in as, as much shape as I could possibly come in, because at the end of the day to the season ends in September usually take a little bit of time off. Then you got a few months before you're right back on it. You bring up a good point as a catcher, you're getting down in the crouch. I don't know how many times a game you probably could figure that out. But getting into the crouch coming out of the crowd, standing up. Throwing going back down into the set position. I mean as like doing deep knee bins for three hours that has to be hard, if you're already overweight. I don't know how yada your Molina ever did it for as long as he did it. Well. Yeah. I mean, and even him, you look at it now he's trimmed up. He's had the trim up, and I think catchers were little bit heavier. And even when people used to meet me, they on the street. They're like, man, you're, you're not that you're like thin like you're in shape. And I was like, okay and they're like your catcher and I'm gonna go. I mean one of my supposed to be fat because I'm a catcher, but that was that was kind of the, you know, the way people envision that position bigger guy. And I think even in general like to what you said, the beginning is, it's a completely different ages. I mean you walk in. Everybody's in shape. I mean there's you might have a few pitchers that are overweight. And you might have you know that guys usually very like a Bartolome Cologne, right? He's been around at his stage. They're just like, hey, dude, if you're over. Wait about Tabatha. Anyway house about the continue to play. Honestly. Here's, here's what's crazy, foes. I've actually seen guys that were heavier and this is where the debate comes in. Right. I've seen guys our heavier one offseason go into training, lose a ton of weight. And then they come back to spring training. And in that say before they were throwing ninety two ninety three miles an hour. It come back and they'd be at eighty seventy eight. So is it better at a heavier weight, if that's your body structure? Right. Because I think everybody has different you know, their bodies different if you can manage it and it's better for you to be to be at a heavier weight, then you know, that's something that you have to take into consideration because doesn't look good. But if I perform at thirteen percent body fat as opposed to ten or whatever it may be. I need to be making sure that because I make my money, not on the scale or not on a body, fat test, make my money you know, at the end of they've playing baseball, will you played your college ball at Tennessee, by the way. Congrat-. Relations to your Tennessee volunteers. What a basketball season they have we follow them Heke, I, there's not many things that I'm very crazy about, as far as sports wise. I I mean I really do love watching all sports, but Tennessee is something that I will really really pay attention to, and I was super super distraught, I went to a restaurant and set at a bar by myself, because I didn't want nobody to bother me or be around me on new special spot in. I was in Toronto and I decide there and watch the game. And I'll screaming at the TV people probably thought I was nuts at the end of the bar. But I mean, that's something that I follow close the Tennessee Affleck's, I was so distraught after they lost went right to my refrigerator and opened up a protein, shake and drank it. No, you didn't go on. Tell me how much were you into fitness in staying in shape as a college player. Tell me tell me about what that looked like, then compared to after you were drafted in how you took fitness and health. You know what's crazy is. I actually have my stories a little different in the sense of I was a late bloomer in high school. I didn't really lift that much weights and I'm a Cuban my family both my parents born in Cuba. So I was I was raised on rice and beans and plantains, and like breads, carbs and all these different things. And so, I got into the university of Tennessee as a freshman, and I got my, you know, my first Bod, pod test, and all of a sudden, this thing shoots out that I'm twenty one percent body fat, and I'm going, okay. Good or bad in the ladies like you're gonna have to lose weight. And so it was it was like there, when I first started earning nutrition because she, you know, thankfully, a new big universities, they have nutritionists in these good dining halls. And so, she's like, all right. I'm gonna go the dining halls, and I'm gonna make sure that you, you know what you're making the right choices. And so, I was like, all right. So vegetables to me or like plan plantations. Like, I don't know the, the Spanish diet. There's really not a ton of veggies. It's just like protein and carbs. And so she's like, no, you have to eat broccoli. I'm like I don't wanna touch that broccoli, and she's in oh, you can only have Brown rice the types of Brown rice. We're not gonna have the white rice or for breakfast. You know, you can't have the pancake you're gonna have have a little bit of oatmeal, and then through the whites. And so that was a huge judgment in realizing, you know, how I ate was so much part of the equation. And so that was my freshman fall. I went from twenty one percent body fat to thirteen in one fall. And it was because of just adjusting my diet in learning. How to you know, I was now I had a good routine in the weight room, 'cause we had strength coaches and stuff like that. So that was that was my first real entry level to nutrition was my freshman year and then to. Continue on into then, you know you that was where I learned it and then all of a sudden now get drafted. I'm a high pick in now there's a ton of expectations, you know, your first round pick and you have to make sure that you are doing everything in back in everything up because you're supposed to be this, you know, this, this great player supposedly, so that's when I started being able to really dial in on my fitness and be able to now I could afford to make sure that I can eat right? Right. When I was in college, I was trying to piece together maybe Turkey slices at night, or these different things. You don't have the money at all. But once I signed now, I have the resources rights, and I can go after a strength coach, I can go after, you know, do some yoga, I can I can find a nutritious and pain. Attrition to write me, a chef, you know, make my make my meals, and that's what I started doing. And that's when I really, really started taking off as far. As becoming more physical in really becoming more fit in general, is because I was able to, to have all these not even that's not even saying the team. Right. The team has a ton of ton of things disposable to, and then my agency you send us to this place. That was awesome. It was the month before spring training. They would send us to this place called Wesley chapel in the Saddlebrook in there. Some John is ner was a tennis player that was there and James Blake in, we would stay there and literally you'd workout twice a day. And you would eat five meals, a day, you'd have masseuse you would it was just one hundred percent focused on becoming the best like physical specimen. You can become getting ready for the season, and then I learned a ton of men like eating healthy foods. Make me sleep better recover better. And that was a lot of the stuff where, you know, the difference from college. The pro. Gbi talk about having the wherewithal the being able to have a personal trainer is a first round draft choice. You suddenly left, Tennessee, you came into a lot of money overnight. What did that feel like to you as a young player? Do you remember your feeling when you you I sat down and said, oh my gosh. This is really happening. Sit. Yeah. I was kind of going crazy in the sense of you work hard for this opportunity. And then all of a sudden it's here. I got to watch my name, you know, you're watching with your family, and all of a sudden on TV. It's the twenty first pick. And the blue Jay selected I knew that they were gonna pick me because we had talked about it before. And then all of a sudden, boom it happens. And, you know, like you say you go from not having anything, really as a college student to now of sudden, you're signing seven figure deal. My mom is my mom is like crying laughing at the same time 'cause she sees my contract, and she's going. I've never made this much money in my entire life combined and your, you know, so it's, so it's pretty crazy. In its in its amazing thing, I also learned very quickly. What credit means in having established credit because when I went to buy my car, they told me goodbye. My car is it have enough good credit which was I thought it was kinda crazy 'cause I was like. I just signed for over a million bucks, you can't million dollars and no credit. What's that about? Well, no, you're you don't have any credit. I'm like, dude. I just signed for a million bucks. I come on what can I get? I was wanting a Range Rover my entire life. Like can I get my Range Rover in the but that was, you know you learn you learn things. But then, again like you said, you know, drafted now becomes real deal. This in college anymore where now it becomes a business real fast. And you once you get the pro ball it doesn't matter if you're first there, you know, round Rediker, thirty round pick us put up or shut up. So you talk to moment ago about being a pro athlete in getting in shape and staying in shape. But now that you're retired from baseball. I know you're doing television for the the Marlins. But as a retired athlete JP, how do you stay in shape? I mean it has to be a lot easier. I would think when you're within the confines of the team because either consciously or subconsciously there's competition to stay shape and keep in shape, not so much anymore. So how do you stay fit? Well, I mean I learned that quick, right? I got done playing. It was like two five to ten and Silas, all of a sudden, you know, you done and you don't have to get checked anymore and all this stuff. And now I'm going. Yeah. Can I have that burger and French fries? Yes. Can I have the desert shirl take the desert? And so, I was I got into I got into this bad habit of just kind of eating, and you don't realize when you're not in competition, not even that, you're not even like training that. Now, you're not playing for four hours a day, which makes a difference. Right. And so all of a sudden, fast forward, you know, I look at myself in the mirror and I'm two hundred thirty six pounds and my, my buttons of my dress shirt can't even close and ongoing. Holy smokes. This is bad and I gotta make a change in. So I quickly made a change in an honestly, now fitnesses become I mean with, with different mental stuff that I've gone through in different things fitness has become more of. Therapy therapeutic outlet for me. And I've, I mean I've in the best shape of my life now. And now it's fun is I could actually train for looks for example, and baseball. You can't really do biceps time or chest because that gets in the way to throwing motion in, you know, it's your it's predominantly back strength. And so now I can actually lift for looks in the biceps in the in the chest, and do things add. So now it's kind of a different drive as far as you know, really keeping myself in shape for, for my own sanity. But also, you know, really enjoying pushing the envelope of going like, man, I could actually train for my aesthetics as opposed to sport. So I've actually got into the best of my life. So tell me about your regimen. What is that regimen looked like to take you from where you were right after retirement to where you are today? Give us give us a thumbnail. What your day looks like your workout looks like? Well, one thing I've done is I've gotten into intermittent fasting and I had never really heard about it, and I started really researching it, and I saw a lot of benefits for it, and I said, you know what I'm gonna try. I mean, there's different kind of styles but I get into the sixteen in eight, which is, you know sixteen hours fast, eight hours feed in the eight hour template. And so for me, I would work out. I get up. And I work out on a fasted stomach, which before when I was growing up, I would have been like that would have been like. Oh my goodness. You can't do that you have to get something in your stomach before you work out. And you have to have in that forty five minute window after York yada, yada, yada, will honestly I started doing. I started training. I'll wake up. I'll go and just have black coffee because you're black coffee during your fast, tea and water and stuff, and I'll go, and I'll just crush a workout. And then I, I won't eat until usually my window will might my window. I try to go from. Eleven in the morning to seven PM is the window that I can eat saw. Let's say a workout at to work on the morning, so we're got to eight eat anything until that window comes at eleven and then my first meal is a big meal. It's a lunchtime meal. Yes. And so now, now that's my first meal, and then I'll, I'll usually just relaxed whatever I'm doing now. The baseball season started a little different, but my on underscoring off, like a normal day, and then I'll have one little meal, and then usually what I was doing as I was doing a second workout, and it was going to be cardio like a high intensity like fifteen minutes jitsu class, in after that jitsu class, I would have my last meal, which was in that window. And then that was it. That was I was working out twice a day, trying to do a heavy you know, strength lift in the morning, and in new cardio in the afternoon. And then I would eat within that window and all of a sudden I started seeing like, huge benefits. I mean, in the mirror, I could tell the difference, and even in my clothes, I got into like, my the smallest waist I've ever been in my I mean, I think since I can remember when I was a kid. Wow. So you're doing this facially twice a day that basically a five day a week, workout or less. So I go six days of, of lifting. So I try to do a push pool legs split. So I'll go push pool legs. And so, you know, chest usually chest shoulders anything they are pushing with upper body than than pool would be more back and in your biceps, so like back and buys kinda deal. And then the third day would be a leg 's, and then I'll repeat it on. I'll give myself Sunday off Sunday's my, my day off and then again most of the time most of the time during the week, I'm trying to get a second workout. And if I don't I'm gonna at least gonna try to walk for thirty minutes. Something over thirty minutes at night, I try to get in something else. But yeah, that's my my split that I've been doing. And that's where I've really, really seen a ton of changing my, my body and in my weight, and everything being that you played your college at Tennessee. I'm surprised you haven't. Brought up the barbecue. Curls. You're not you're not doing curls with barbecue. No, no, no. I, I am not doing curls with barbecue. I I'm a little vanilla on things that I do I try to stay within the, the means of just old school styles stuff will remember one thing, JP television ED's, ten to fifteen pounds to USA, stay in this workout regimen, as long as you do in television pre and post for the Marlins. Hey, I am going to keep it up. And now that I'm back on the market as a single man. I'm trying to make sure that everybody Miami 'cause everybody's in shape, not only for TV but for my own fantasy you're right. Everybody isn't jape, particularly in south Florida. We're visiting JP earn CBS here on changing the game JP. And I will be right back in just a moment. Okay, this is for you listeners. If you'd like to share a story about a game changer. That's part of your routine. We want to hear from you on social media. Use hashtag changing the game podcast. That's changing the game podcast. He'll be shy. We're all in this together. We welcome back to the gas changing the game. I name is Phil stone. I'm visiting with JPR in CBO play persecutors with Verano, Texas and Tampa Bay today JP is broadcasting for the Florida Marlins doing the pre and post game shows in south Florida JP. We talked the first few minutes about the physical side of getting shaping staying in shape but as we know in baseball as it is with every sport. There's the physical side and there's the mental side how about the mental side of, of getting in shape and staying in shape. How do you program, your mind to adopt a regimen that sometimes the body says, I don't want to do this. Yeah. Well, honestly, you know, we talk about the physical things before, but over life, I've realized the most important is between the ears and just the, the mental health side of things. I think, you know, I, I was a guy who never really took a lot of stock into the mental side of things. And, you know, even in baseball I never really struggled, so I was in wasn't really to to into it. Right. And I figured I, I can just get through it until my third full year in the big leagues. I really started struggling, and all of a sudden I was waking up in the middle of the night with, you know, panic attacks, beatings -iety attacks. And, you know the, the crowd had turned on me, I was getting booed at home. And the media had turned on me and all of a sudden I went from being a guy who enjoyed competition and enjoyed life to when I was away from the field. It was riddled with anxiety and just, you know thinking about situation. In a game. And all of a sudden bubble up, and my, my, my thoughts would go too crazy places as far as you know, now all the sudden my heart's coming through my chest. And, and I think even the Kevin love, and there's different guys demar the Rosen talked about different things. And so now guys are starting to talk about it. So I think the first thing for me was, you know, really starting to learn about things -iety in why these things happen in in. Oh, why do we get the way we get? And so I had to had to really dial into the mental game, which ultimately I walked away from it from baseball because I just I was like you know what I'd rather wake up with, you know, my brain in my mind being at ease is opposed to the hamster spinning. And I've seen a lot of guys in baseball. You know, making well over one hundred million dollars and just miserable. And I. That was something I needed to tap into. So I, I got done playing and you know, I was starting to get help and and talk about it in then all of a sudden, I started realizing okay, we'll maybe you know, thoughts where my brain is going not going allow my brain to go there and I'm not going to do these things, and then I got into meditation and meditation was something that I started realizing learning, and as you think about it as pro athlete. We're supposed to be so tough, and all these different things, and you don't really take into what even just meditating at a ten minute level in the morning before you started using how much it can really set the tone for the day, and so to begin with just in general, the mental side of things is I really, really started taking meditating and, and kind of trying to get right for myself mentally to be able to then enjoy, you know, the different things in life and not. After walk around worrying about am I gonna get cut a went into kind of a self help, what can I do to just be in a good place, mentally in a writer for you? Retired. I remember reading quote where you said, this JP, I have done everything with hard work, and no shortcuts. I'm so thankful to all the people who have helped me along the way. Can you talk to us a little bit about some of the people that were important in your life? Yeah. Well, I mean as far as just as a human being my mother, obviously, was she was one person who worked really hard in was that, you know, my parents when I was young. So she, she did a lot for me in just seeing. Her work was big in the way she went about things. And I think that's where I got my work ethic, and my kind of honestly, I got my toughness from her. But it it was a detriment in the sense of sometimes, I took that toughness too far right? Where I kept it inside for a long time because I didn't want to really show any weakness, but then I hired this guy. Ken revisit in Kendra visa who passed away last year. And he is he was he's a big time secret behind the cubs. Winning the World Series. He's Joe Madden. Who's the manager of the cubs? He was like their mental guy for the that team user like mental coach. He was a person who when he passed away last year. It was really really tough on me because he allowed. Me to really start enjoying, you know, waking up in the morning again. And, and having a hope for, you know, a future in, in having hope for, you know, the good things to come, and there's coaches, you know, obviously, we have a ton of coaches along the way. But when you're talking about like impacting impacting me, and where I've been able to impact, others Ken, revisit, you know, change my, my career towards the end, the Midi helped me out, but he's also he also changed my life in the sense of how I looked at things in house able to have something happen, bad in my career, and be able to move on from it or how I can have something bad in my life on my daily life and move on from it. And he was he was just like one of those happy, go lucky guys that would that would say, like did you struggle today, and I'd say, yeah, go good. Good. Because that's how you learn to get past it. And, and, you know, that's that was a guy who I mean, again, among all the. Baseball guys that I've ever been around. There's another guy Chad Mottola who's the hitting coach for the Tampa Bay rays. Now he was the fifth pick of the draft, which was right before Derek Jeter, and he didn't really have this crazy career. And so they almost looked at him as a bust, or whatever. So those, those three people for me in my personal life. My mom can reviews on both sides, personal physical and Chad Mottola both sides professionally in off the field. Those are the three that really, really meant the most of my career when you talk about struggling, I wanna talk to you about a little bit of a touchy situation. Talk a little bit about anxiety. No, you had to overcome anxiety during your playing career and and that certainly a mental part of the game that I'm sure you were not expecting to show up, but it did. How did you deal with that? JP overcoming anxiety is a player was a huge thing for me because. When I was a kid growing up. Those tell you like, hey, shake it off. You'll be fine in all those injury. Hey, shake it off. You'll be good or a bad game shake it off. You'll be all right. But this was something that, you know, the panic attacks in the middle of the night, I woke up and I didn't shake him off. Right. I knew I was still having that kind of pit in my stomach. And I still was able to, you know, his battling it and then okay, we'll go to the park. All right. I'm going to be good. I'll shake this off, and then having other bad game and then come back in the right into the same ordeal. And identify what you were panicked about while you were in the midst of it. No. When you're when I was in the midst of it, as far as the anxiety, you know, your brain a lot of times, I would think like man, is this going to is this, the my ever gonna come out of this, because it was like you, you're freaking out to a point where like am I gonna get stuck like this? But a lot of it was because of the struggles as far as my baseball career, you know, I, I was so, you know, built up had so much stuff built up inside that it just kinda all unraveled in. So that was tough for me. And I didn't really speak about it for a few years while I was playing because I was like you know what keep on pushing through it'll, it'll pass then Finally I had a panic attack. And at the time. My wife at the time was, was, was like a was that I was like, well, you know, kind of go through this during the season, and you need to get help, and I got health, and I started talking to, you know, psychiatrist and then started I got Lexa pro they gave me Lexa for Ono's able to start helping me and then I started really talking about in honestly, just having the conversation when I spoke about it publicly, and it did a article think the Phillies did an article on it and I had players, and just on air personalities and all these people that I would have never expected to have been dealing with it reach out to me and say do. Oh my gosh, ideal at the same thing. How can you it took like a thousand pounds off my, my shoulders to realize that I wasn't alone in that battle that there's a lot of different people that had that had dealt with it. And so all of a sudden, I was like, okay, well, maybe this isn't as bad as I thought it was an I continued to learn and read about, you know what? Zayed's is and y you know, certain why we freak out or how we you know, our brain goes to the thoughts that are not reality. And then, you know, little by little, I started getting past it, and, you know, till today, you know, I think meditation is, is a big part of it, I think being able to know about what it is what the what the executive truly is. And then also I'm off meds now and I've not that I've ever seen that on pass it and there's certain things that I'll get anxious about, but I've learned to accept that anxious thought and then not allow it to just get to a crazy place to, to go k all right? This is this is what's coming into my head now or this is what it, you know, whatever the situation is. But is it really that bad of a situation kind of dissect it as opposed to getting one side thought the new expanded to too many we're talking to former major league catcher JP air? CBS on changing the game. We'll be back with more in just a moment. Changing the game with Phil stone is produced by civilized for show notes and transcripts of the interviews, go to civilized dot life. We welcome you back to changing the game. I'm Phil stone. And our guest is J P, Aaron C. Former major league catcher for the Tampa Bay rays, the Texas Rangers and the Toronto Blue Jays JP. This is our rapid fire segment of the show. When it throw a couple of quick questions at you and just respond with what comes to mind. What did you think the moment you were nominated for the coveted Roberto Clementi humanitarian award in two thousand thirteen? Men, I was kind of taken back. I just was in a in the state of you know, I'm thankful. I always lived by this is treat others how you wanna be treated? And I think that handles, a lot of the stuff, and so I always wanted to make sure that I treated this that. Cleaning, the hallway within the stadium or, or you know, the owner of the team on the same capacity. Treat him with the same respect and give them, you know, the make them feel like they're worthy of, of, you know, great Danes and, and just so that was it. I think I just tried to really be a good person. And then to have that nominated I was like, well, there it is, you know, you, you kind of do things that go, not on a stash sheet that was something that was able to, to kind of tell me man, you're, you're doing the things that you need to be doing can be earlier today. I checked online, and I saw that your Toronto. Blue Jays bobblehead still selling for forty three ninety nine on EBay. Are you okay with that? I think whoever buys it at that price is ripped off. I think that they have to think that I think that at the end of the day, if you if you want to spend that kind of money, they can get a hold of me, and I can ship them one for just the price of the shipping because forty-three ninety nine is I know that I'm not paying for my own bubble. Head. And I wouldn't let my family members pay that price for mom bubble. So I think it's a little overpriced. But hey, I'm thankful that somebody still thinks that I'm worth that kind of money, but I think that they're, they're shooting a little higher. Hey, is that bobblehead? The hundred ninety one pound are in Cebu, or the two thirty one. That was that was playing there and CV right there and that's exciting. What do you watch it on TV these days? Well, I'm the kind of Discovery Channel kinda guy, although I do love watching sports. The one thing that I, I mean I can I can sit there and put on planet earth, and turn up the Malaya pretty high. I just watched doctor like a documentary on the plane about the polar bears, and different things in Alaska and the refugees in Alaska. Watching all the animals there. So I'm I'm big into all that stuff. So the music on planet earth. That's not your workout music as it. No. Heck no music, when I'm working when I'm working out on, on listening to usually some, some stuff with some beat some, some hip hop some wrath. That's or I'm going the complete opposite of the spectrum and going just like whitesnake. And I throw some Kansas in there and some different things. But I'm I mean, I'm definitely more to the hip hop for working out JP, what your power snack when you really reach for a snack, and you wanna really, really feel it. What are you taking? You know, rice cake with you know, you get like Brown rice cake, with some almond, butter and some Honey, and that for me is, is a Goto and honest in lately. I've, I've been against some dark chocolate chips and because there's a lot of benefits dark chocolate. So that would be one of my snacks. So no twinkies. Tell you what I'd love to eat twinkies, but I stay away from them. No ding. Dongs. No, I, I was a huge Swiss cake. Roll kid as a kid. I was I was a kid that were a t shirt in the swimming pool is a little kid 'cause I was a little heavier than most. So what's your favorite meal when you choose to indulge what he a setting in front of you? When I go that, for me when you say, indulge that means cheat meal and there's two things that really tickle my fancy. One of them is a pepperoni pizza. I will absolutely crush up Rony pizza. I love pizza. And I wish I did not have the calories that had, but it does. And then other than that unwilling big time cheeseburger, and I'm going, you know, bacon, the whole thing, and I want French fries, and I want catch up, and I want all the bad stuff for me because the down inside I definitely affected at heart. So those, those two meals, I kind of look forward to them when I have my cheap you aren't if you had to eat a drive through, and I sent you probably don't go to the very often. But if you were kidnapped against your will and taken to a drive through, what would you eat? Honestly, I'm gonna kinda surprising here. I'm gonna make one and taking me to Starbucks find me a Starbucks has a drive through. I can order a coffee and then I can order, they have breakfast sandwiches. They have different things. So for me, I think that I would definitely go to Starbucks. But if they made me go to, like a chain out say Chick-fil-A is something 'cause I, I am very much a big fan of, of a Chick-fil-A sandwich. But it always feels like when it's time to have one. It's a Sunday in their host or JP. You mentioned you're back on the market. What is your definition of a perfect mate for life? Just somebody that's normal that, that makes me better and understands me for being me. Understands you know, hey, there's certain things that I'm into. And that, you know, I am who I am and love me for that. And just again make me make better. And the one thing I will do is have somebody who's into fitness and eating healthy and all the different stuff because I think that is a you want to have somebody that's like minded on that is not a mixed little difficult. Aren't here's a serious question for you. I know that you're still an ambassador for the Toronto Blue Jays. Even though you're working for the Florida Marlins. Now, the conflict of interest or not gonna look into that. But what would you like to say to all the fans? Well, I mean, honestly, the end of the day, my dreams were made in that country. Although I, I am from Merrick. I, I love my dreams came true where I grew up. I was there for four years, where I got to even grow up as a person. I love the country. I love the people. I love the diversity. And of the food. I love everything I like even they have Tim Horton's the doughnuts that are called Tim bits. I love those too. So I just I'm thankful for all the all the great things that, that people in able me to do and the fans and again, I'm thankful that I'm still able to go up there, because people care about me so much and still respect the things that I was able to do for that team that I'm still able to be a ambassador and j p one final question here on changing the game. What is the one thing that you want people to know and remember about? JP CBS. Well, one, I think, again, I live by the words of you know, you treat others the way you want to be treated. And I think that's a, that's a huge thing it would make our world a lot better based. But also, you know, I'm person who'd, you know, you may see face value, and you didn't know that what I was going through, and I was struggling, you never know what somebody's going through. So you never know. Just even if you say hire, you smile at the person how big it might need to that person. And again, you know, there's some all of us have our battles we all get into dark places, but as tough as it is to see it. There's always light at the end of the tunnel of this keep on pushing forward is at sun comes up every day. JP. Thank you so much for joining us.
