What To Expect From CES 2021
"Hi. How you doing? Good. The consumer electronic show 2021 talk to me a little bit about that. That's ce s 21, right? Yes, And what's interesting? I think about it is that this year? It's been very different, right? I mean, what hasn't been different, but this is one of the largest shows in the world usually attract somewhere around 120,000 people to Las Vegas, and it's an insane, you know, week of just all these new tech ideas and all that. This year. It's a little different, but one of the things that we've seen in a lot of these virtual presentations is actually a lot of technology to help with the pandemic, and what I think has been interesting is that ah, lot of this is taking health technology that was already on the horizon and kind of applying it to the pandemic and how to fight it. Me an example of some of the things that they're trotting out there A mask phone touchless doorbell. What? Caught your eyes. Yeah, The math phone is probably the best one right, So it's literally like one of those cheap Bluetooth headsets built into a mask. But it works. In fact, Reviewer of the Wall Street Journal said. She used it for Ah lot of conference calls, and she was very happy on day. It's only like 56 bucks so easy, but there are also other ones out there. For example, there's a bio button. And this is a really interesting idea. It takes sensors that are near hospital quality. Not exactly. Near that to come on your chest and just this one button. It's not a bunch of sensors. They're all built into this one button. It can stay there for up to 90 days, and it can track your vital signs and all sorts of other stuff and alert you. If you're starting to get sick now, it can't tell the difference between Cove it in the flu. Most of us can't either unless we get a test, but It's a good sign of kind of showing how technology that was again already kind of in the offing can be used in the more positive ways. And then finally, the touchless doorbell is probably one of the smartest dog type technologies I saw where literally it's a video doorbell, just like the ring that a lot of people have. And what it does is that they have a mat that they put right in front of the doorbell and the doorbell. It's been taught if someone is standing on that mat, so they're close enough immediately. Ring the doorbell don't have to have them touch it. And, of course, that's like, really smart idea, and that time when we're all worried about germs, same thing with the toilet, By the way, we've had, like sensor run toilets for a long time in businesses. Now they defend. They found a way to make it kind of lets ugly looking at home, And instead you just kind of wave your hand over the flushing The flusher like your jet I or something, So there's a lot of that type of stuff that we saw. Doesn't the Smartwatch already do some health metrics for you? It does, but it is not doing stuff like following your temperature as closely right. It's not, you know, the so far most of the watches are on Lee taking heart rate sometimes oxygen, though they're not terribly good at it, and, according to our reviews have seen it. And also the BCG, but they're not able to do stuff like your temperature and other stuff. And so I think what's interesting is it's not just taking those vitals the way that the watch does, which typically, the watches only, really doing that a lot during a workout, and then it's passively doing it every once in a while when you're not This button. In theory, for example, we haven't tested it, but in theory would actually be tracking you pretty regularly on day. Especially if you're someone who lets imagine you're over 65. You're in a in a home and you're really worried about possibly getting Cove it or getting sick.
What is a Golden Toilet Website and Could you Possibly have One with Steve Brown
"What is a toilet site. And why i i mean. Everyone is listening rather listening in watching. It may have one of course. So some brian. I you know in the years that i've done this. I would have all these business owners come in today and say steve. I think we need help with our website. We need to redo our website. We need to show. I think we need show on social media. And and then i. I think we got to show up at the top of a search somewhere. Though what i realized was what they're really saying is look steve. My customers are expecting me to have a good online platform. I see a competitor's other brands really killing it and i feel compelled. I need to step up and transition from traditional marketing in the modern market. But i don't know where to start so being an entrepreneur. What's an entrepreneur. they're gonna do it anyway. They're gonna figure it out right and they were using the words. They had to tell me what the subtitle was on that on that foreign film they say website. But what they're really saying. Is i need figure out its platform thing because that's where a world is going but every day when you're called and someone calls and promises you that they can get you at the top of search and they're calling every day and you're seeing social media post your being brainwashed. Are you being framed. June the your perspective and expectations are being framed and one day. Just hit me that. I in a forty five minute conversation. You know when they say you gotta tell someone seven times before they hear what you're saying like what. I have seven minutes here and i can't have time. So how can i reframe their expectations. And so i would go brian. Look your website. Is just the toilet in that boston home of yours. You wouldn't buy home if it didn't have one right but when people come over where do you guys hang out in the kitchen around the fireplace around a patio. Look it's important but it's just one piece in an overall it makes a home and so the most absurd universal iconic somewhat humorous example of reframing your expectation of your website was to call it a golden toilet and it's it's the internal fuel fear that every business owner has is wasting money on something that won't work and you think of golden toilet golden toilet doesn't make flush any better. It doesn't improve the user experience. It's just a waste of money and so that's what we're wanting to avoid as business owners. So let's i want to get into this question. Because i had for the dance list but let me let me get into more d what you're talking about. So tell us the horror stories of holding onto the website. What do you mean by this concept where you're diving into like money. What what are the cost of holding onto that. Tell us about that so that people who who just maybe dive enter into website or people are telling them you know you didn't website. You know what what does that all entailing when we talk about cats. Yeah number. One would expect expectation right if you do ride the here's people are evaluating and judging you based on the information they find out about you. There's a a quote that says people have to buy you first before they buy what you do kate so a lot of people put a lot of focus on that website but the messaging could be all wrong. You remember that time you went and checked out a website and is like this clock's ticking down like a clock. That's that mom that's going to explode if you don't defuse it cape well that's what's going on your brain. Your brains go and brian how much longer we gonna waste here. Let's go don't and you're like no give me a minute. I gotta find it. It's around here somewhere. I know they have finally grain says. No we're out of here. Well you can have a pretty website but if it's A user experience adds frustrating. We've walked away from great websites ruthless without even caring and went to the competitors. Because we couldn't find something got frustrated. That's what's at stake here.

Lessons I Learned by Growing Fast in 2020
"I want to start this episode by saying this is not about me beating on my chest and saying look at me. Look at our company. We grew this much. I'm actually going to be quite vulnerable and share a lot of some mishaps that happened in the year because of this growth and just for context we start. Women are nj. Yesterday we will be in business for seven years come april so it almost took nearly six years to hit this crazy rapid growth. So we're definitely not an overnight success. We've been trying to prepare for this for some time. And i want to share with you. How it all worked out in twenty twenty now up to this point before twenty twenty. We had steady growth. So it's very predictable. About how many resources we need in terms of customer support or developers or if we need to spend more money on advertising all that was kind of predictable but the will be a time in your business. Will you'll have drastic growth. Because of an event for us it was covert but it could be something different for your business. Forbes might mention you in an article and that will give you incredible traffic a random influence or celebrity might use your product or buy your product and mentioned it on social. This is actually more common than you think. A big brand or big business with the following might use your product and mentioned on their blog. This has happened to us before as well. So you might have these spikes that lead to tremendous growth for a period of time so these events. The spikes are unpredictable. You know in this is going to happen. So how can you prepare. Well you can prepare to some extent so one lesson. I learned something that really prepared us. Was that inner business. We create an called standard operating procedures as oh peace and this basically is documenting every single task that we do in our business. We're really really anal about this. I know this sounds really really strict but to the point where we have a procedure for answering emails on support for publishing podcasts episodes. We have a procedure. Every single thing in our business and the reason why we do this is though that if we ever hire somebody training that person to do a task is not going to be super super hard actually self study. They can do it on their own. It also allows other people on the team to pick up a task if they need to help out by just following the sap. So i highly recommend that you start creating standard operating procedures for every little task in your business and you can start with department like support. There are tons of questions that get repeated day in and day out how to receive my password. Can i get a refund. fund policy. do accept american express. All these questions get asked over and over for many businesses and you can create standard replies. Now they don't have to apply word for word. Whoever uses sap but the point is is that they have a source of truth somewhere where they can go now. What does that have to do with growth. If you have an explosion of growth and all of a sudden you have all these support tickets in your queue. And you're like whoa. I don't have enough agents. In fact on the one was answering all support tickets. We'll you can do is one odyssey. You can put a job posts are hiring but you still need to train them. You still need some onboard and it's going to take a couple of weeks but in the meantime you can ask the rest of your team members to jump in or you can get a freelancer really quickly to answer. At least the s o p questions that are in your cue immediately that alleviates a lot of the stress and the problem of long time through support so. Soap's huge huge thing to help us. One thing that we were not prepared for was how quickly we had to hire in two thousand twenty. We hired eleven new full time. Hires some of these hires were repeat. Hires meaning that we hired for this position before the customer support agents so that was pretty easy to do because we had a job post to go. We knew exactly where posted we had a whole system for application and interviewing but some hires were brand new brand new positions. That was a brand new job post. So one of these didn't do that. We should have done was right out the job descriptions for the next positions you wanna hire so. We had a list of positions that okay. These the next hires who wanna make these new positions. We wanna fill. We had that in place but we didn't take it step further and have those job. Descriptions really fleshed out understand exactly who we're looking for and what we want them to do because what happened is that oh man. We need this person. This person this person to meet this growth and to really capitalize on this opportunity of all. This traffic is coming our way so we had to spend a lot of time on saying okay. We need to really flush a who you're looking for so we can find the right candidates who can make the right hire quickly so if i had into it again i would definitely a have those job descriptions already even though you're not hiring now it's good to have them in a bank in your google drive so when it's time to hire you have to hire you can easily post that job description. All set to go.
Sea-level rise from climate change could be worse than projected
"In presenting his climate team. Joe biden said it was specifically committed to facing climate change by delivering environmental justice. Talk more about that if you think about various recent events the hardest hit communities where the poorest communities you know sea level rise is an issue that really is threatening a number of low lying areas coastal areas and islands. Where you've got many indigenous people living in open alaska in the coast. There's a really odd thing happening. We're sea ice is disappearing and so first of all. It makes hunting of whales and other animals much more difficult but there are waves that are now breaking onto the shore where they're never waves before and it's literally like barreling into the digital towns along the shoreline so there's a lot of these effects certainly in the cities that's gotten a lot of attention to this year so if you're going to clean up sources of emissions than sources of pollution in general maybe start in the places where it's needed most and we're the people who live there need help to make these changes happen. Yeah i want to jump in and ask a question here about the pandemic as we understand it. Most scientists agree that this was a virus that was started by a bat that might have been driven by its environment because of changing climate is your sense that viruses pandemics are connected to climate change and we may see more because of that. So there's some really interesting linkages here deforestation. What you're doing in part is you're flushing out. Animals that normally live. There are happy to just stay there. So bats are carrier of lots of these kinds of pathogens and they're getting flushed out of their native habitat by us cutting down the forest essentially and that's a big factor within climate change to more of these slash and burn less trees. There are to absorb carbon dioxide in the more missions you create so as a source of potential pandemics we raise the stakes there and then completely on the other end of this in inner cities diesel fuel emissions carry small particles in. It's been shown they can actually carry virus particles a fair distance. Lot more than the six feet that we always hear about. So if you think about an inner city where diesel emissions are wafting into the apartments and all that and if there's corona virus around potentially carrying krona virus so all these things that are gonna connected in some pretty surprising ways. Well yeah you also want to remind listeners. That climate change isn't atmospheric only. We've got ocean. Temperatures in currency visited iceland a year ago and one of the country's biggest fisheries fish. They're catching that shifting. Just briefly what's your biggest concern about oceans end of twenty twenty. I think your story in. Iceland is a very good example of the oceans are maybe warming little but with a lot of glaciers melting ice sheets melting especially in greenland that area. There's more fresh water that enters the ocean so changes the level of salt so temperature changes a little salt level. Change a little the fisheries. They move you know they want to go where their conditions are prime for them and also where their food sources go which has a lot of implications for people who depend on local fisheries for their own substance. Well mark fischetti. Some would say this is a dispiriting conversation at a time of year. We're supposed to be filled with hope and love and at the very least have a spirit of faith. Do you have that that some of things you've talked about are going to be addressed or even turned around if you think about. What can we do. And in a number of these cases we can change the regulations. Make them tougher can stop the methane leaks. We can certainly improve environmental justice justice in general so there are definitely actions that we can take. You can be defeated about this but you know we all live here. So let's do something about it there. You go
How to avoid a super-spreading coronavirus Christmas
"Let's talk quickly about some tips to stay safe because we know that this coronavirus out there and we know that when it appears it can happen quickly by surprise and it's hard to get back to control so a good offense is the best defense as they say so norman. Water some about top tips for avoiding catching coronavirus around the christmas table. Okay so let's start white around australia before. We zero in on new south wales and queensland where the there are reported cases so everywhere around australia regardless. Whether it's christmas day or not. You got a symptom runny nose. Cough fatigue headache go and get tested. They'll be testing places. Open christmas day. Go and get tested. Don't wait that's the main thing that you can do in states where there are territories where there are. There's no virus circulating are apparently knows virus circulating. But there could be because you've got people coming in from overseas so any symptoms get tested. That's the main thing there and follow the rules in your state in terms of any restrictions that might be there. Victoria great news for hard work of july and august and september. Two has paid off. You've got a great christmas with virtually no or no fara circulating in victoria. So it's fantastic and it's just reward for the heart stuff that you've been going through in new south wales really regardless of whether your new south wales you just got to stop moving around and unfortunately you've got the best way to control from really spreading fast is for people not to be mixing with each other as so be mixing little as possible. Try cutting back. Your christmas lunch was probably too late by by the time. You're listening to this but really there are strict rules in place for the beaches area the northern beaches area of sydney but everywhere else. Just don't go out unless you really have to minimize the number of people who are coming into your home. That's the main thing that you can do wear masks when you go out to shop when onto public transport that should be mandatory. New south wales. It's not at the moment but you do your bit wear masks part from that. Have a great christmas. The you know it's important to enjoy it within that framework queenslanders. Some virus circulating. There's somebody from new south wales coming in. And there's a personal for super yachts apparently in far north queensland where the authorities are complaining that people are not being that forthcoming. Let's hope they are. to be alert and careful. What about around the table norman. We know that we talked before about whether or not you can catch the virus by eating it and we think we came to the conclusion that you probably can't but when you've got people touching their faces and sitting across the table from each other and there's food around should we doing christmas a bit differently the when it comes to eating and drinking. I think that's very hard to insist upon people coming together and having fun i think the main thing to say about christmas day wherever you are to make a safe as possible is if the weather allows it for example in western australia western stray where it can be very very hot and parts of regis trivia can be very hard as well but if it's possible to be outside that's the best place to be and you can really be much more relaxed outside than inside. So that's the key here. Try not to have an indoor christmas. And there's a little bit of evidence that you can consume it by eating. You can get captured by eating but not very much. There's not very much evidence really. That surfaces are a common source of infection. It's really through the air. That's why outside is so much more important. It's really unusual to catch this virus outside and kissing under the mistletoe. Yeah i think that's right you know. Just keep yourself to yourself. And there's of course i remixed if i didn't add that when you go to the bathroom flush with the done one can't have a coroner cast christmas without some party

Ethiopian PM says troops ordered to move on Tigray capital
"Ehthiopian prime minister this morning has ordered his army to move on the capital of the tigray region in the north west of the country. This decision came after his seventy two hour. Ultimatum ended for tigray leaders to surrender. The central conflict here is between the new government of ethiopia and the old government of ethiopia. An aid groups have been sounding the alarm about a humanitarian situation that is deteriorating quickly. Tens of thousands of ethiopian refugees have fled the fighting into neighboring sudan. Npr's ada peralta is following this unfolding. He's in nairobi Good morning eater. Hey david let's start with his offensive. I mean the prime minister had been warning about this. It sounds like it's happening. Now what do we know. Yes so prime minister. Abby acclimate who won the nobel peace prize last year. He says that the last chance for this war to have been resolved peacefully has now closed and he says his troops are going into michaela to try to flush out the leadership of the left. The people's liberation front and he says that will try to do everything to protect civilian lives but michelle is a big urban densely populated city. Think of something. Like saint louis and and even the government has admitted that any fighting will result in civilian deaths in abbey's military has warned that they will use heavy artillery and that the left has said that they will defend the city so this war which has been going on for about three weeks now. Hundreds have already been killed. Tens of thousands have fled as you said and this will no doubt Be the most consequential battle so far. I know this is an incredibly frustrating situation for a year to try and cover this all but impossible to get in there and actually see what's happening firsthand But you know there's been weeks of fighting around the capital. What are you hearing about the conditions on the ground. It is hard to report. But i think we can safely say that there has already been Some pretty gruesome killings that the international community is saying could amount to war crimes We know for example that in a village near the sudanese border there was a huge Massacre videos from there have shown family members crying over bodies of their loved ones in the middle of the streets and the government's human rights commission sent a group of investigators there and they say that more than six hundred people were systematically slaughtered. They say that they were killed with machetes. Their houses were set on fire. They say that militants tied ropes to their necks and dragged them to death. The government commission blames a youth militia aligned with the rebels for this but the refugees fleeing into sudan say that it was the militias aligned with the government. Who did this. So we know with certainty who committed these atrocities but what we know for sure is that civilians have already suffered terribly in this conflict. Got it sounds like it. And what about these tens of thousands of people who are fleeing where they going. What are they facing so they are going into eastern sudan will. Carter is based there. He's a humanitarian with the agency norwegian refugee council. And let's listen to a bit of what he's been. Seeing many of total stories of happens not tillery and strikes and parts of western tigray region which is where most of the refugees we've seen have come from and of past couple of weeks. I guess troop movements militia movement through their this season. They've really fred for their lives. Are you suddenly and there. Was this one woman who spoke with who who had fled across the border and her story released stood out. Here's what happened to her. When the conflict began she was pregnant. Nine months pregnant when this broke out and have given birth on the way to the border crossing and had no one around that she knew it's women seeking safety stopped to help her deliver thankfully. There was no complications with the delivery and charges alive at the moment at least sleeping next to everyone in a big communal tent. So david i mean these are the kinds of situations and stories that show you just. What a tough humanitarian crisis. This has also become really What sounds like an awful situation. A dangerous one with a lot of people life. A lot of people's lives at stake
'Waste' Activist Digs Into The Sanitation Crisis Affecting The Rural Poor
"Catherine coleman flowers. Welcome to fresh air. Thank you thank you for inviting me. You've been active on this issue for a long time and have brought a lot of people. Philanthropists reporters elected officials to rural areas to see for themselves. Poor people living with this problem of simply not having sanitary disposal of human waste. I'd like you to describe the experience of just one of these tours and the reaction of those who saw what what you showed one of the persons who's reaction with i think sums it up was Dr phillip boston. Dr allston was to you in special rapporteur on extreme poverty and when he was invited to lowndes county. It's part of his official tour. He went to see areas where people were living amongst also which was the one of the homes that we went to It was a compound with a number of mobile homes that set off of a dirt road and one could see the the water lines. They carry water into the home. Going above of what looked like a ditch. Full of raw sewage and nearby was a Was a basketball goal. Which children apparently played basketball. And when he saw there was a were reporters with us On his his his tour and one of the reporters asked him. Have you seen this before. And he said this is common in the developed world. And i thought that that spoke loudly of what i had phil for all of these years did this and so what what people would see a new taken. So many people to this and observe their shock at what they saw was often in a peace pipe. V pipe running from home or a trailer to a hole in the backyard. And then when you get closer what you see. There are when you get closer. You probably see human feces and toilet paper. Aisle whatever was flushing in the toilet. that day. The one place that we win That was this out in my mind. Is that it was full of pitfalls raw sewage. As you say the person had pvc pipe there was a lot a lot of ingenuity. This involved. In this they the the pvc pipe was buried underground and it went to appear in that period again was full of you know raw sewage and you could see the eyes of a frog that was embiid in the sewage and was p p coming out from it and oftentimes depending on the time of the year and now that the days we have long warmer seasons. Their mosquito sometimes congregated on top of the sewage. Those animals will spread this stuff to wherever they go exactly. you grew up in lowndes county alabama. It's an interesting place in the history of the civil rights movement. Isn't it yes. It's very interesting place. In the history of the civil rights movement. Most people know about lowndes because of his fight for voting rights and the establishment of the lowndes county freedom organization which was the original black panther party And that the black panther was chosen because a lot of the sharecroppers had not been afforded the opportunity to go to school so they wanted to use a symbol that people could understand and also you know they wanted to slogans from their time was pulled the till for the panther When they organized their own political party and ran candidates On that part because at that time it was not But people running. This candidates was accepted on either republican or the democratic party In lowndes county. So that itself was more was a a great accomplishment on the side of sharecroppers former sharecroppers who had been kicked off property just because they sought the right to vote and that was the lowndes county freedom party that preceded the black panthers organization right yes and it's also is this area on the root of the famous march from selma to montgomery that dr king led yes. Most of the civil montgomery mind troop goes to lowndes county lowndes. County is actually between selma and montgomery

Kim Ng Makes Baseball History
"We'll somali i. Can you talk about your own relationship with kim hang. How did you get to know her. I started reporting on the dodgers around two thousand eight or nine with espn. And i'd see her on the field and she always was just kind of calmly standing there and you know just seemed like whatever interaction she had with people were seemed to be efficient and short and so it kind of intrigued me. Who is this person. So we just got to talking like. Oh this is this is coming. She's says gm and all of a sudden she's telling me stuff like we've got this kid kenley jansen as a catcher. You really can't hit those we put them on a mound and the results are interesting. Clayton's working on a slider molly. You should really check it out. But the where she would say it was so matter of fact and so dislike whole-home that that's kind of what stood out to me about her and then we've kept in touch over the years. How would you describe her personality. What she like completely unflappable. I think the first thing that needs to be done is. I've got a really familiarize myself with all. The ins and outs of the players. Deadpans are totally cool under pressure. Like the person you gonna call if you were kidnapped and needed the ransom delivered by noon with no you know without tipping off the police or anything else you. She won't be there. Where are we who these players are. And you know. That's that's at this point. The nuts and bolts of the job. Well for those. Who don't know that much about kim. And can you tell us about her career path so she played softball diversity of chicago. She was an infielder. She was really good. I was really a a sports nut love to play and she then became an intern with the white sox and twenty one years old working in the white sox baseball ops as an intern and at the time the other white sox were very good club had a lot of good young players and it was really just about learning and soaking it. All in absorbing all that i could and by the time she was twenty nine she was brian. Cashman the yankees assistant general manager and that was in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. They won titles ninety eight ninety nine and two thousand now. Let's be clear here. That had she been a man she would have gotten a gm job somewhere else. But that didn't happen. Molly you about saying and how. She operated differently than her peers in l. a. Can you tell us about that. I mean that that dodgers organization was by a bunch of guys who were so emotional so yell at each other so in their feelings she was just sort of just like standing there. Like i can't believe you guys and so it was just like toddlers running around at her feet. Two thousand five. The gm position becomes open and she interviewed for that job. What happens there. She was by all accounts. She was right there and franklin court the former owner of the dodgers wanted to hire her her pedigree spoke for itself. She had three world series rings. She had sixteen years in the business and the owner frank mccord. He wanted the credit of hiring the first female general manager. But what i was told later was that he was scared of the backlash of being the first guy to fire a female general manager. Because as we know it's a cutthroat industry n. gm's they don't their shelf life long even talented ones and so that was one of the reasons he was too scared of that. I guess the mcchord years got really ugly and about i say i wanna say two months before. The dodgers filed for bankruptcy. Because of a court drove the team into the ground. She got out of there and went to work with joe. Torry be again demonstrating how smart. She is molly. You know as well as anybody that kim has been talked about for basically twenty years now as the person who is going to be the first woman. Gm in baseball. Do you have a sense. For how many teams have considered her or interviewed for this position. Because yesterday when i wrote my story i published. I said as far as we know. The dodgers angels the padres the giants the mariners. They've all any reader and within like two minutes. My story going up. Somebody with orioles texted me. Oh we interviewed or to like it was just like everybody is interviewed her. Just sit there going through this anymore. They're just putting me through this so they can fill their quota or whatever i'm not gonna put myself section but she just did not give up and that's really the way a lot of my career has gone is just every step of the way it working as hard as i could give you my nose to the grindstone and just you know getting to the next level but i think this is so valuable to any of us who do have specific dream in mind about something. We'd like to do one day. And that's you know when you call close and you don't get that job that you desperate for just got a flick flush it and let it go and not let it break you to the point where you're not going to try again.
Wisconsin likely to go blue, Trump tweets fraud
"20,000 votes. There is an automatic recount provision in Wisconsin law, presumably that will kick in. It's hard to imagine a voter fraud. Size of 20,000. That's a very, very large sample size that would have to switch. Remember that even in Florida in 2000, which was the most litigated single election in my lifetime, the number of votes they actually switched from Bush to Gore. After all of that was like a couple 100 votes. Maybe 300 votes. You certainly was not 20,000 votes in Florida's a much, much larger state, then Wisconsin is in terms of population. Michigan. We're still waiting for all the votes to come in Arizona team Trump seems to be Clinging to the possibility that Arizona could could fall. It's way, but we're too early to say there will be litigation over the actual vote count like if there's evidence of voter fraud, there could be litigation over the actual standards that are being applied to count votes. I'm sure we're gonna find out in short order from the Trump legal team, because I do not think that we're going to get a trump concession, nor should we until all of this has been flushed out. Just take it one day at a time. Yeah, I mean, I think that's right. I think that's right. That's why you know when Trump declared last night that he had won the election, except for fraud, I thought, Well, no, I mean, you can say that. You think that you're on a path to win the election, and you might say that we have people on the ground to ensure that fraud doesn't happen. We will file lawsuits anywhere. We think there is fraud to ensure that fraudulent votes are counted. And I'm all for all of that. But you've seen both Democrats and Republicans night. They've had members of the Biden campaign because of Wisconsin's vote totals, saying the election is over. No, it isn't it isn't. I mean, those vote totals have not been certified in Arizona. They've not been certified Michigan or Pennsylvania. So everybody preliminarily judging the outcome of the election. I'm I'm going to go no on all sides on that, Michael Great Leah. Let's not jump the gun. Of course, exactly. Exactly what we're gonna find out in fairly short order again, whether that you know who won and who didn't and we're going to get all this out. I mean, we do have processes for this, and I think it's important. We recognized that processes for this because if this were going the other way, let's say that Trump Had a sweet out a victory in Michigan and Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and Arizona and Biden. We're sitting around going. I won the election for voter fraud. Everybody on the right doing what? What? What now? You don't get to do that so well, how about how about we let the process take place? And then we can complain about whether the process was fair or not. But the preemptive complaints, I think are a mistake. I think there's also a legal mistake for Trump, by the way, because we have seen many court cases. In the Trump Administration era in which Trump's actual words in places like Twitter are uses evidence that he's not actually concerned about voter fraud that basically he just doesn't want the votes counted. And he did this in immigration cases they shouldn't but they used his words on Twitter is an excuse to Teo. Basically strike down. When I thought were fairly good cases that Trump was bringing you could see the same thing happened here. You just If your terms lawyer you're saying him, please just stop this. Like we've got this taken care of working on it. Please just please just cut it out. But Trump is not your best legal client. That is for sure. Right there. Get interesting will be allright.

"In this episode. Let's discuss lighting and automation with the philips hue lights as it pertains to your movie watching experience all from the comfort of your own couch. Nothing beats sitting down to a riveting film that grabs your attention and doesn't let go when there's a bill that becomes unpredictable or a special effect. You've never seen who were members when the matrix i came out and how epic it was to seek. Keanu reeves dodge. A bullet in slow motion remembers marveling at that alien. That came alive when you saw e t for the first time. It's escapism at its best. Diy short ladder that leans up against your wall nearby to hold your throw. Blankets ideal for snuggling up to watch the next great movie. I chose the timing of this on purpose because my family introduced the philips hue lights into our home this past june but i wanted to live with them for a while to really see how we used them and also wait until the days grew shorter to see if that changed how i felt or how often we use them so four months. Plus a time changed later. I knew that now was the right time. So a little housekeeping note before we begin you can pair your philips hue lights to any smart home assistant so no matter which one you have. They'll work another benefit that has nothing to do with. Tv washing is that when you're away you can program your lights to make. It seem like you're actually home. Sound and picture. Technology have come a long way to accompany this topic. If you don't already have a four k tv you've probably at least heard about them. Four k tv sets have been out for a few years and look fantastic. We have one and love how thin it is. The number of four k movies available is growing daily which makes owning a four k tv more and more worth it because the picture is only as good as the movie. Quality is made so. If it wasn't made in four k. Your tv won't make it look any better. A good sound system complements the experience wonderfully and thankfully we don't need giant ugly exposed speakers anymore to get good sound. The alternative used to be like spending forty grand or so to have everything installed flush mounted and hidden. Now you still can go that extra mile but so has a soundbar available that easily blends in and takes up. Very little room. Had a lovely neighbor who owned asana system and we could actually hear it through the walls outside their house. If they were having an especially fun evening the experience of buying and setting up philips hue lighting was interesting. We found it challenging to setup. I purchased the lights for my husband as a surprise for father's day and once we opened it and looked further. We realized we needed phillips bridge. In addition to make it work so we went ahead and bought one after five. Hours of troubleshooting and mounting. My tech savvy. Husband was less than impressed when he finally got it connected to the router with another purchase of a splitter because our router had no more open ports we finally realized that to sync with whatever you're watching or playing since at works with gaming to you also need the hugh sync box. Yes we can use a computer in lieu of a sync box. As i started writing this we were enjoying zoro streaming through the computer as advised by many online reviews

Struggling Rental Market Could Usher in Next American Housing Crisis
"The Federal Reserve says that renters could be on the hook for more than seven billion dollars in overdue payments. By the end of the year other estimates put the much higher and when eviction protections expire that can have a domino effect on the housing market. Our housing reporter Will Parker is here to explain we'll thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. Now, the eviction protections are one thing, but the actually making it any easier for renters to make monthly payments. So you're seeing a large number of renters who are not able. To make their payments and although there is a eviction moratorium that does nothing to absolve the debt that they are accruing through months of Amiss payment and what the concern really is that this debt is growing with every month that passes in the pandemic as unemployment remains high and as certain benefits such as expanded unemployment have expired. So that is hit to low income renters but it is also a hit to the owners of the properties they live in who have mortgage is and who may be in financial trouble soon as well. But if unemployment remains high, a lot of these people may not be able to resume paying rent once the protections expire that's a huge concern because you seven months end to this pandemic. Some people may find themselves in a position where they have work again where they get. access to income again, and they're making wages similar to what they were before but they still might have several months of that. They still have to pay and their wages may not be enough to both cover their future repayments, their expenses, as well as their rent dad from the months in which they were unemployed. So there is a huge concern that that summer interest simply will never be able to pay off what the Oh how's the rental market faring during the pandemic as compared to other areas of the real estate market. This pandemic is highlighting some of. The key differences and advantages and setbacks between being a renter and being a homeowner. So you know homeowners who are in trouble they have certain financial options, right? They can take out an extra mortgage if they have to perhaps they can modify their current mortgage. There are forbearance programs for homeowners, but but most renters do not have this ability to simply refinance what there are behind on. So the situation for Renter's right now, I think it is a much more difficult on now among renters who being hit the hardest by this problem. So unemployment in this pandemic has A. Lower income wage, hourly wage workers, and service industry workers, the most, and those are the same people who researchers believe account for the lion's share of the unpaid rent in the housing market right now, also census survey data indicates that non white renters tend to be more likely to be behind on their rent payments right now have higher income renters been insulated in any way from the economic hardship. So some. Of the best data that we have on rent and rent payments come from about eleven, million apartments that are so called professionally managed apartment buildings and these these renters tend to be higher in common pay rents that are higher than the median, and even in those buildings recent Alice's showed that missed rent payments are up seven percent over last year. So that strain is even being you know up the income ladder. From the lowest income individuals and how what the landlords how faring during this it's different for different types of landlords. You know some who are very flush with cash right now or have larger serves have large investors they've been among the most willing to kind of ride this out to you know, let tenants continue to stay without paying rent or putting them on some. Sort of payment plan so that something comes in every month even if it's not everything and that that's definitely a part of the housing market there are other landlords who have been less tolerant who are filing addictions where a local laws allow them to and who have loaded up tenants with late fees on top of the rent that they already. Oh, so it. There's a there's a whole range of responses from from landlords on this, and certainly the ones who feel the most at risk to losing their properties through foreclosure. For example, for not being able to make their mortgage payments are are the ones who are you know likely to react the hardest to ten it's not being able to pay now as rent debt continues. To rise in people's economic situations you know don't get any better. WHAT'S THE WORST CASE SCENARIO ECONOMISTS FEAR? The worst case scenario that I think most people looking at this fear is is a large wave of addictions and a lot of advocates have been talking about this for several months. It hasn't happened in large part because of the various protections that that do exist. Perhaps, also, because many landlords sort of look at the economy right now and look at the housing market and think if I start addicting lots of my tenants, who am I going to replace them with but again as as these protections expire if they if they do indeed expire and without significant changes in the economy or some sort of stimulus some people argue that these actions seem inevitable too many people
They Call Us We Bare Bears
"Hello and welcome to another edition of they call us Bruce and unfiltered conversation about what's happening in Asia America. I'm bill you. And I'm Jeff Yang and we are so incredibly pleased tonight to have with us a very special guest, a friend of ours, a friend of the PODCAST and a brilliant animation creator. That's kind of a big drum roll right now who's it going to be? But I'm here to tell you that it is in fact, Daniel Chong the creator of we bear bears one of our favorite animated series Daniel welcomes the fogcast. Welcome. Thank you for that intro. Man I don't know what to do with that that. Good now. All right. No for real. Huge. Admirers of yours and big fans of of we bear bears I've you know as much as possible I've I've kept up with it given. The fact of the world is basically a rolling apocalypse I'd. Things things we've your bears are the things that make life feel less like a total and utter shit show. And I will say We're particularly excited because we have the chance to actually take a look at the. We are bears movie, which is sort of like an exclamation point on the series and it was fantastic. I mean I have so many things to ask about say about it especially the fact that it feels like. I don't want to say this to overstate this in some ways, but it feels Kinda like an important movie in ways that I will elaborate. Thank you perfect for twenty twenty I'll say that But let's begin actually Daniel. By talking about how this got started in I mean for those of you who have not yet watch, we bear bears. It actually began as a web comic called the bear bears right. Three bear bears right shortly there and tells how that where that came from and I guess how this how this turned into. What it is today. Yeah It was a web comic that I had created it. You know I was working in the industry in the animation industry ad. I just wanted to make my own thing. And at the time you know people are posting things on blogs and stuff. So I created this comic on my own called three bear bears is kind of a play on Goldilocks, three bears and so Yeah it was. It was a comic that It was very like free for me. I. Didn't like really right out anything ahead of time I just kind of like A. Free associated as I was drawing it and nobody read it and nobody cared and just completely I remember going onto comic forums and trying to post it like, Hey, guys check this out in like nobody wanted to talk to me on forum. So it was just like. But but the thing is I was already working. So it's not like it was so debilitating. What was it? The only thing I had? It was just You know it is it is that was just it was my outlet that my special hobby I guess at the time. So but as I was in the animation industry working as a story artist for about ten years run by fifth year I was starting to get antsy I just wanted to create my own things. So I started taking these comics different ideas that I had started just flushing them out into pitches into stories and or. TV shows, and that's where three bears became weaver bears. I got to change that title for legal reasons apparently. Some what's called a some company owned I think there were a taxidermy company, they own something similar. So. You know now the title really means nothing at it makes no sense but it's So. Yeah. We're not responsive opportunity right there if you. Off. So. When you when you came up with this for the idea when he became a cartoon a series, like what were the kind of the things that you were like how did you pitch it honestly when I tried tried to explain this series to people who've never seen it? Yeah. It's kind of a weird thing to try to like I like the concept is such a It's so simple and yet it. So it's too simple in a lot of ways. Yeah and then trying to explain to the emotional complexity of is difficult. You know. I think the pitch itself was was. The visuals help a lot. I'm not just pitching words so. I think there are two things that were very crucial to well, maybe three. Crucial things to the the Bible ever the pitch that I did that help sell at one was the visual of stack these three bear stack them each other which you know I it was a very iconic thing in the comic and that was definitely the thing carried into the pitch, and so you know I pretty much started off the Bible by showing this image of the three bears together. So it just. kind of it's sort of just evokes a very strong image up the top. The second image that I put in the Bible was an image of the three bears mingling at a party with a bunch of Humid's holding like cups at a party and nobody is freaking out by them. They're just all mingling together as if they're like, you just talking about the weather or something like that, and that was another like. Important image to kind of sell here's the joke. Is that these three years nobody freaks out when they see them they're just one of you guys except there bears. So that was the other really important image to sell this project

He's once asked that question to make it seem like he's always with him like these plugged into pop culture weird wordy things and they're never funny. It's just bizarre. I think they're very funny. He's very God, he's fucking sucks. Cheese aside from obviously studying the the playbook just in case biologists listening right now. I mean. You know my my wife and I, we tried to have you know some fun with it and figure out ways to kind of keep ourselves entertain. Funds like watching television. With. Quarantine Oh. Like different ways, you watch the television so still Wanted to entertain I would say that back then so I guess it wouldn't have worked a big. What are you? What are you talking? Obviously. Jobs or hurt I actually did a lot of cooking every night which was fun was never really coach much before.

Man asking that question like I've been there. I have been there but he's answering you're doing something you're having breakfast you're. Listening no one is actually listening to that answer there in the world even if you're listening in the car, but that's so to your point yesterday like they got that out of the way, the quarantine stuff and all that would they asked him next week before you had your sights set pretty heavily on Texas. Do you think things would have gone any differently from what I mean look There's no way. I really like Daniel like I mean she's a nice break. Oh, what the fuck and I. Don't blame what kind of question is that what the fuck are you asking right because As a genuine football care everything's in the air like you clearly can't ask like you know.

But that's my point about the power. It doesn't really matter who the president is in the way like if you have advisers and I'm the WHO Biden with I guess by and have the you know the usual crew.

Guess but it seems I felt like it was a good opportunity for O'Brien to speak up and be like, Hey, let's do this and I would agree but I don't think I don't think the trump administration I don't think they made it seem like they were really reaching out and like away the fixed thing though. Bronco called their book. finger-wagging Lebron doesn't want to hand him victory Lebron just now. Oh. Yeah for sure. But I would like to see Lebron do something like you know if he's all this talk that it would have been. Nice.

The other way in other words is is the ball suddenly going to be softened end up for next year. I'm sure the players association will be keeping tracking that as well absolutely and rounding out the week.

Then you have have to start with walter johnson who's in the conversation for the greatest right handed pitcher of all time i would have number two rod karoo. I would have harmon killebrew and i would have kirby puckett. All those guys are hall of famers with all due respect to joe mauer. That would be my fort. What about you. I would have to put our and you're putting guessing. Let let me gaspar's. Let me just take a guess. You're going to put them in place harmon killebrew no oh okay oh i would keep killebrew crew and puckett. I applied drome our enforce your walter johnson out walter johnson. This is one of the greatest pitchers ever. I am my personal. I guess <hes> deciding factor was i wanted to pick players with retired numbers by the twins. I think that if you get people to go to mount rushmore and they see someone who doesn't ever retired number tongues will wag and also also this is a really great way to get the young millennials out to the mount rushmore of the twins to go see joel mccower and take their fees or whatever they wanna do out there.

I absolutely agree sorry in terms of baseball vitality i mean there really isn't any competition but i do think that the boom clan is also fairly interesting. I mean bob and aaron both went on to have have really significant careers after baseball whether that's managing or broadcasting but i mean in terms of best baseball definitely the griffey's next next. We've got marc sherman at shark merman as of right now the twins have two hundred and sixty one home runs and the yankees of two hundred and fifty home runs. Do you think the yankees can catch the twins and defend their home run record and they've made up a lot of ground. I don't have the numbers in front of me but it felt like about three weeks ago. They were down by like thirty thirty. Five home runs something in that range and now they've cut it down that far but i think the twins gonna hold on and reader you know this. The twins have the easiest schedule down the stretch. They're we're going to beat up on these bad american league central teams yeah absolutely i mean the yankees have the orioles that we have the tigers the royals and the white fox to beat up on so.

Wong underscore what do teams exempts think think of the juice baseball change their thinking and how does that make their jobs easier or harder yeah darren.

This is definitely something they have thought about <hes> and they're trying to figure out <hes> without saying absolutely this is going to be an issue and we need to figure it out but he's like now.

My favorite thing at the state fair was always a tractor pull growing up. I'd love the tractor pull and the oxen pulling at the farren vermont <hes>. Will you be following the twins on radio or television over the weekend. Thankfully thankfully television. We actually installed a fire sick and got really great wife. I up at the cabin so that i can watch the twins game. See here's the thing i i like. I definitely prefer radio. I love listening to games on the radio but i and my my son is the same way that you are. He's like why would i listen on radio. I'd much rather watch on television anyway. I just can't find one. I can't find one anywhere. I don't know them anymore. All right. Let's get to this. Week's bleacher tweets sound good kicking things off. We've got terry high new at cherry hiding out of all the three division races still open in which one is the most likely to be won by team not currently in first place thirty in advance at rena banana. Yes so taking a shot at you there being a twins fan holding holding elite over the cleveland indians. I think the division as wide open still is a national league central the cardinals lead the cubs by two in the loss column but keep in mind seven of the last ten games for these two teams are against each other down the stretch and that means that you know as long as they stay within range. Either team can win that division. What do you think yeah. I fully agree and i think it will also come down to just whatever teams the hot is. At the end of september. I think think the twins and a slightly slightly easier schedule than cleveland for the rest of the season and but i think the n._f._l. Central is still wide open as well moving on. We've got the bill chuck files at billy ball after listening to prince fielder earlier in the week junior griffey and with all the kids in the majors this season who do you think is baseball's best father and son duo of all time yeah it was ken griffey junior and his dad ken griffey senior who was a great player and part of those great reds teams in the nineteen seventies..

"Hey. We're just gonna go by win today. It was how can we if we know that there's a possibility where to lose zack wheeler jason burke biggest free agency. If then the season how do we go and replace two pitchers to make sure that we are going to win in two thousand twenty and so the idea was to go and acquire a pitcher now thinking about the off season and where the free agent market and the trade market and at the time remember you're hearing all the pitchers trevor our my minor matt boyd stroman going to different teams so in the maya the mets if those pictures all get traded to other teams and then you go into free agency and you've got the price garrett cole madison bumgarner so many of the free agents being too much. How do you replace guys like jason. Vargas <hes> when the market could possibly be the order that way i think was the mindset and knowing that objective is everyone knows for the mets. It's not gonna be rebuilding year. It's always gonna be trying to win win for the next year. <hes> i think the idea of buying also you know replace guys but then to even turn around and sell <hes> <hes> to be able to build for next year <hes> where i credit brody's. She didn't just give in to any trade. <hes> you know seeing a lot of the offers that were we're out. There and i think that's why we saw guys. Trevor remind minor matt boyd so many pitchers not get traded when i thought i think a lot of people thought that the tree market would be it was a it was a seller's market. <hes> i saw that train change very quickly <hes> to where no one was willing to give up their biggest names <hes> not even the biggest names but like we're talking number two number three prospects <hes> guys especially that are gonna come up within the next year or so <hes> versus you know one that might be four or five years out which we all know is a huge risk especially for the mets that wanna win next year so anyway kind of a long story short. That's that's the mindset of the mets. It's about winning next year wasn't so much coming out of the all star break being like we will win this year. <hes> even though they started to do that got it was really about. Hey we're not gonna lose out if we lose two of our pitchers on this picture market for twenty twenty now both the mets in the phillies. This year have been helped out by older coaches. Phil regan was installed as the pitching coach in eighty two years old. I covered fill in his years manager in baltimore orioles one thousand nine hundred five to know how progressive he is a no how open minded he is he you know he managed for years in winter ball. Which gives you some on perspective. He didn't take the winter off. He went down and he would tell great stories about that so you knew that he's a pliable personality. In charlie manual of courses as executive executive said to me this week he's great dude like everyone loves charlie manual and it seems like they're both having an impact yeah i think in i mean you think about where the game baseball is right now buster and that it's all about use and whether it's driven on who gets paid the most who's talked about the most <hes> how analytic factor in the age and i get the players but i feel like gosh if you're over the age of like thirty five these days like you're done. You can't be a part of the game. It's over and you know i joke but when it comes to coaches i feel like that stereotype. Also there and i appreciate the fact that you can see phil regan charlie manual phil obviously being eighty two years at eighty the two years of age charlie being seventy five and from what you hear from the players from the mets the hitters from the phillies.

"Fueling the american spirit spirit does aligned with sunday night baseball's jessica mendoza uh baseball. We've got the mets in philadelphia jeff. How're you doing this morning. I'm doing you a little tired on the west coast yes but that's that's not a bad thing. Well so let's. Let's inject some adrenaline into this look. You're in your first year working with the mets in addition to what what you're doing with us on sunday night baseball and i just got done talking with ravitch about what's happened the mets and last week i off back to back sweeps at the hands of the braves and then the chicago cubs. Just tell me what you've seen in the team right now obviously frustration and i think you know coming out of the trade deadline the second half of the season the all star break so much hope just a different team <hes> and not that it was just marcus stroman coming over and you know but i think just the idea that this team team had a lot of faith in the front office from entire organization that they were good enough and could be good enough to get to the postseason and the run that they went on and after that i think then to get swept especially coming off sweeping the indians getting swept by the brave so then it just adds pressure and and really what we've seen busted with the wildcard is how closely knit all of these are. It's one thing to say okay. The mets are chiefs back there so close to begin the wall car but then it's another added added pressure when like your games back at that point with three or fourteen all around you that any minute capacity you and i feel like that kind of pressure are you can use it to to push you motivate you and get you through and i think that's what we saw for a good teach we span and i think once this mets team got swept by the raves <hes> <hes> the pressure coming in with the cubs especially after the first loss <hes> it just it got to know syndergaard to jacob degrom <hes> the big cats so you just kinda see on the players faces like i feel like last night. Especially was the most important game of the season. You got your ace on the noun just to stop the bleeding meeting of okay. Let's get to september make sure that we're contending and september by the way that's sunday right just to get to the philly series and you got your race and then after he hit that second home run. I just felt like the entire team was like this is. This is the most important game of the season yup and look. There's a month to play and it's not like the the mets are chasing a mortal teams in you know you mentioned how closely packed together all all these wild card contenders are in part of it is because none of them are great teams and so there's an opportunity had them but as we talked about fan graphs have assesses the mets play off chances thirteen percent and before the trade deadline time may the stroman deals around seven and a half percent. I thought it was crazy. Then that they bought i feel today it was still it was just as crazy. I'm concerned about the long term cost for the organization. Look these are not your decisions but i'm curious about your read on sort of what the perspective of the front office was in making those moves being being around the team being around brody bring around the front office heading into the trade deadline that that week <hes> you know the plan wasn't hey..

"I'd go into next season hoping guys healthy and staff that is that his damn. I'm near the best in major league baseball. We just ran a soundbite from jeff luneau. You can have three starters like we do well. They'd have them. They have more <hes> going going into a season and swimming health into a postseason. We have as much ability and talent as anybody yeah. Your point is dead on in this look. Brody bandwagoning got that job because he told ownership that he could win now and that he could make moves that could win now. That was the mandate from ownership ship when he came on board and you're right the way to make up for that for that win now. Impetuous type of of movement is to spend more money and they're going to have have to because again. Look at big picture the plans for the two thousand twenty one two thousand twenty two mets stroman it will be eligible to reach free agency next next fall. Syndergaard matt's will reach free agency the year after that which means in two thousand twenty two when you look at the match. You're going to have like a thirty four year old jacob degrom. Tom and four empty spots after they strip mined the farm system like it a long term. It's ugly again. I i wouldn't argue with that and i think it's important to have long range thinking. I think the wilpon like many other <music> ownership groups are into putting people in the seats and collective bargaining agreement on the horizon. There's a bit of uncertainty uncertainty as to what direction this whole thing goes and and what the <hes> you know what the basis is going to be for salary structure and and all those things that make up the currency b._a. Or likely to change and i i need to be focused on on the immediate when i have the level of talent especially on the staff that i do more show than i am. What's going to happen in twenty twenty three again. I the other part of the equation. I think that has changed <hes> rather dramatically which will speak to the bay is the impact that kids are having on the game and i don't mean little leaguers but i do need those that are six years removed from little league league age. You're talking about eighteen and nineteen year olds. Those guys are different <hes> or at least the acceptance level of those guys is different the idea that today the mets farm system is not what other farm systems are. Does it mean to me that in the next two years it couldn't change dramatically medically and whoever that person or people are could have an impact in twenty twenty three and twenty four for no other reason we see it on other organizations now that we're heading towards the postseason see the braves <hes> see some of the astros kids see the nationals so i i'm not denying that that we could be having this conversation member station in twenty twenty three and twenty four and we're looking at them the same way you have it the royals recently it's been terrible but it could also go the other away last full day. Yes you're mentioning teams and say look you know teams with good prospects prospects like the mariners with jared clinic and just in done here gonna deal all right.

"Sell. They're going to actually try to buy and they did it. Okay and now now. It's apparent that the big hail mary play is probably not going to pan out for them and to review where they were on on july twenty seventh which is the day they made the deal their chances for a wildcard spot that day carl seven point two percent of the chance of division title zero point six percent and there is enormous cost in doing this because now because the value they didn't get for guys like zack wheeler <hes> you know the potential value in a noah syndergaard value in ed as he had some trade value before the deadline that's gone because he's gonna make over seven million dollars next year and it doesn't look like he probably well. He's gonna have time to recover and on top of that. My god the amount of salary they now are looking at for the rotation. Jacob degrom will make twenty five million next year a big. They've jumper him almost threefold. If they wanna keep zack wheeler now they'd have to give eighteen million in qualifying offer syndergaards gonna jump to twelve million seeven matt's is going to jump to that six million stroman is going to be twelve to thirteen million in that range. They already have the fourth highest number of dollars in payroll commitments next year and you know how the mets do business. They don't oh necessarily wind up having one of the biggest payrolls. The future costs the credit card metality. This will devastate this team moving forward. It was a mistake at at the time they did it. I know they want to run. I know they had some fun days and maybe they can reprise that to some great but men. This was a bad bet. You know the comparison i made here on the podcast was someone with a pair of twos going all in with their stack of chips. It made no sense and now the cost is right in front of them. What do you think well. I think <hes> you and i would disagree on the pair of twos. I'd probably have it closer to maybe a pair of nine. I you know i was one that thought the progressive approach <hes> would would pay off and you know initially against the subpar teams it did and there was an energy the buzz and i think collectively <hes> when you looked at the names on that roster and the problem you know one of the problems that they have that many teams do it's not exclusive to the mets or injuries when you have you know canot incestuous incestuous who who doesn't like ellsbury he's kind of in the witness protection program <hes> you know. I think it adds to it. <hes> i agree with you but i think in the end <hes> the mets are either going to have to change the way they do business or to your point that this will cost them for the foreseeable future. They're doing a lot of things <hes> publicly quickly now behind the scenes with regards to their scouting department which i think is <hes> is a reflection of to your point <hes> we're all in on brodie fan wagon and now whether whether you think brody's to you know or a ten or an ace spades that that's up to interpretation and there's probably more where people very skeptical about him then there are optimistic about the decisions he's making but if you were the wilpon 's you've you've kind of made your bed here her and they knee jerk. Reaction is not going to be you know in a year in which we flirted with it here in august and now september. The timber looks like it's not going to be <hes> a great month for us in october. Obviously he's not gonna exist for us. <hes> they're not gonna get rid of brodie van wagon they they clearly have no stood behind him and now you're they are going to either suffer the consequences or or benefit from his bravado and we'll see we'll see what direction it goes but i i understand your point <hes> and again. I was a little more bullish on the on the team than you were with the tutu's hutus <hes> but i'm open to the idea that this whole thing is going to backfire.

The saves the scoring so many runs that i save opportunities have to be going down the fact that boston scores all these runs and doesn't give brandon workman save chances. You're going to end up with twelve saves season and he's the primary closer. I think that's amazing yeah. That's part of it. I also think that <hes> teams with closers. They're much more willing to sort of change guys from day to day than they used to be but that is a byproduct carl without question then if <hes> you know i think the state of negotiations nations for free agency has changed dramatically. I mean look what numbers you know that we once relied on haven't changed <hes> and any volve. You're you're you know his his point. Your point's well taken you save is relevant. <hes> you know you're with is relevant all of a sudden or at least within the last few years and if you're a guy that can go in there and keep waters off base. Keep <hes> runners stranded on base <hes>. That's how you're going to have to take your <hes>. You know your case to or whether it be arbitration. We're to team and say oh of course you need this guy because not only can he close but he can pitch in the sixth or seventh inning <hes> and look little league and major league baseball. We'll have little in common other than the bat the ball <hes> and the fact that you're playing on a field <hes> but we saw at the little league world series <hes> one of the teams that ended up winning the whole all thing <hes> they did go to at that point who was their best arm and in a situation where it was the fourth inning. We need to stop this now. The point is <hes> the closer the save the win a lot of things that once were a high priority are changing but it doesn't to me take away from who's the guy i trust in the end. I need to know that when that door opens and he's coming to the mound whether it's seventh-inning leading the eighth inning with the ninth inning i have great faith that this situation is not overwhelmed him. That's what i pay for because the same thing to me it continues to become what's the what's the highest level leverage part of that game and i think we all who have followed baseball for a long time to look at a situation when and what we're leading by two runs <hes> they have to men on and the two three four guys are coming up and it's the seventh inning we gotta stop this now and we need to have that door open and have the most trustworthy guy come out of that door. I think that's the direction we're going and eric's point about being reduced and and all that that's that's that's the direction the game is going in and as a result the number of saves particular individual has is likely to go oh down unless you fall in an organization where they stick by their sort of old school guns. I've got a sixty guy. Seventh-inning guy. Eighth-inning guy and here comes my closer javan. You know what's funny. Is that an arbitration. The guys with a saves get rewarded. You get rewarded for saves. Edwin de as is coming off a terrible year with the mets yet <hes> oh you know he's been a disaster for them but because he had a lot of saves when he was with seattle. He's gonna get rewarded for that. Which is why agents and folks in front. Offices are saying we need to upgrade. We need to get present day with that part of the arbitration system. I want to ask you want to save some time. Save some time here to talk about the mets who lost again yesterday. <hes> they went through a great stretch in the earlier part of august but they've now been swept in back to back series. I despite braves then by the cubs..

"Pitchers combined therefore i think we're going to have a better record when it's all said and done the yankees and dodgers and i wouldn't argue with them. I think he i oh i think he's right. I i would agree with him. I think they finished with the best record and by the way before that before they clip he also complimented wade miley ano- in paraphrase his own managers wade miley in the more famous guys but wade miley terrific season as well but the thing that jumped out. Maybe maybe what gets lost that clip carl in the conversation baseball around it is this is a pioneer jeff is a pioneer with the work that he's done in the the analytics that they've done and and the way that he has structured the astros in the last four or five seasons is not a bullpen team. They rely like old school starting pitchers richer's. This is what we try to build. This is why we traded for justin verlander. This is why we traded for garrett cole. We're trading for cranky and you kinda makes you wonder under as we move forward in have so many bad bullpens around baseball this year if the bullpen strategy is going the way the wildcat in the n._f._l. Where this this might be the air. It's like well. You know what that doesn't really work and maybe we should go back to getting starting pitchers who throw one hundred hundred ten pitches per game and we can rely on those guys more. What do you think well. I think i think he's lose. He's touching on a subject that most <hes> general managers and you you know team precedents and team owners if you could if you could have your druthers this is sort of the discussion. We've had for years around teams like the yankees. He's when you compare them with teams like the astros. Would you rather have the yankees bullpen or the astros or the nationals starting yeah and i think most would say i'd probably take the starting staffs <hes> over a over a bullpen and i. I don't think it's i don't think it's exclusive due to the way jeff luna thanks. I think if you had your ability to have a kershaw strasbourg ensures are on your own staff cold ver- lander. <hes> you know whether it's whether it's a real good wade miley right now <hes> review kirsch. I think you would always always defer to that if you can afford it and you have the ability to have them on your team at the same time then you would bullpen so. I don't think it's anything <hes> unique. I think the idea that the red sox paid chris sale all that money <hes> there's a recognition that if you can have that guy or multiple guys like that you're going to be better off <hes> by the same token we go into every postseason and it's the starters who ended up coming out of the bullpen because you really indeed three starters instead of four and those guys bolster a bullpen. That's probably tax from a full season of work. <hes> i like the astros i think he understood the ability of those guys to give six innings. I think in a perfect world they give them seven innings. <hes> you know cranky. Maybe a little less than a ver lander recoil and then you're looking at two innings but i'm telling you when you do have those three guys anytime. The bullpen door opens <hes>. You're generally going to be on a team team where you as a fan of that team. Get a little suspect as to who's coming out of it because your starter is so dominant and now we're exposing <hes> you know if not a vulnerability. We're taking a step down from avert lander coal in the case of the yankees. Maybe you're stepping up and it's a little different story..
