"McLaurin 10 Terry McLaurin to what's underrated fantasy receivers out there also tied and Logan Thomas to is having a good season two for the for the Washington football team, But I still like the matchup, especially at quote unquote home, which will be in Arizona. And then I doubt Dallas. I like that matchup is well, too. So, looking ahead. I like what you're saying, especially getting sharing back, especially the way Jimmy Ward and redder playing and Especially the way Fred Warner and Dre Greenland are the playing defensively in for the linebacking corps for the 40 Niners. His name is Fred. Is it Fred War? Brian Baldinger with that? That was namely you said no reds out there anymore. Do bring Fred Shut up for a dean. Dude. All right. Another another lost another one from 2020. Fred Lewis, left fielder for the San Francisco Giants. Sleep on. How about the crime dog? Fred McGriff do the crime dog who totally screwed the Giants, by the way, and, uh, well, there was a 93. Do they breads pick him up and Rocky's couldn't beat him one time anyway to the Niners just real quick again and talking about their fantasy value and whether or not you could, you could pick him up or if you're monitoring matchups from defense. For the postseason. 40 Niners Right now in Yahoo fantasy leagues only owned in 38% of leaks was I told you they've been susceptible to give it up points. And I think even if you picked him up this week, and this would be the week to do it before people kind of get hip to the fact that they may have AH, decent schedule for week 13 against Washington Week 14 against Dallas, This would be the week to pick them up only 38%, a legion, Yahoo! And one thing to consider as well. In talking about Washington. You said Alex, Miss, not the same guy agreed. They throw the ball a lot. They've been thrown a lot more with Alex Smith. They've been far more effective it racking of yards and the yards they could put up concertedly do damage to the to the point total for your defense. When you get a touchdown excuse it all, of course, but I think for their matchups week 15 and 16 Excuse me, 13 and 14. Hi Paula 14 14 and 15. Washington in Dallas, Not bad matchups. And also I'll tell you what, though, but you're right. This is the week to pick that up, because, Hey, man, The bills are an offensive, you know, not powerhouse, but they're pretty damn potent on offense if the Niners even if the Niners lose the game, But Ah, hold the bills, too. I would say under 21 points if it's if it's a low scoring tight game, and, um I think that the statement will be made. Is Josh Talyn is having a hell of a year. And if they can not shut him down, but quiet him. Ah, little bit. And then? Yeah, I think there'll be a big time pick up next week. So this week is the week to grab him and stash him. Bring it on back to build walls Rather be away too early than a week. Too late with this one. Seriously, we're gonna We're gonna take a quick break Tony with some for the other side. I want to talk to you. We were talking big receivers for the Pittsburgh Steelers. What is that? You've got a team now, That really doesn't have any receivers. All right? We gotta talk about this Well, Fuller suspended for the rest of the season. We gotta talk from Houston, Texas Football will come back to the 40. Niners for just a moment, cause I wanna get on Jeff Wilson Junior this week. What to do about this Niner backfield where he most would obviously healthy. He's the Bell cow. He's the guy, But I do think that 40. Niners are gonna try to stay healthy here. They've got to keep some guy's safe. We've also got to talk about Extra players on your roster going into the postseason due to the cove in 19 protocols a lot of people this week right into a tough spot with Lamar Jackson not able to play on a Wednesday and so they didn't have an extra quarterback. And so we're gonna talk about making sure you're backing up your roster short of handcuffing guys as you head to the postseason? Yeah, no question. I also want to get your take on Survivor pool going in because I wanna just get your take on a couple of matchups this weekend. And also daily fantasy versus weekly Venice. I just want to get your take on some of that stuff, because that man, I'm starting to get a little hooked on the daily fantasy tip daily fantasy. Your survivor pools to Shawn Watson, who is he throwing the ball too? And the 40 Niner backfield? All that is coming up..

"Optimistic because look we cleared spots off the ballot. We got four guys in Fred McGriff fallen offered his tenth year only. Derek Jeter is coming up next year merits consideration that opens up more spots on the balanced. Why thought easy curt schilling's name on the screen? He's on a good track. I thought schilling Clemens bonds we're going to be in a very good track with the ballot. Having cleared off. But they only gained two percents as you said, and they're not over sixty three times left. They might have hit a wall. And if they did kind of hit a wall where they might only gain two percent, and they're not gonna make it end via the writers. And if they don't get into the the writers, I don't think they're ever going to get it. So that's Matt Snyder on CBS sports HQ, which explains kind of the interaction and the jazzy music behind him. And he's referring to Curt Schilling who at sixty point nine percent is it was just off of the list. Right. So he he's the next guy on the list who didn't make it in behind you seen Martinez halladay and Rivera Clemens and bonds while they're in the top ten as you hear Matt talk about they really didn't gain a whole lot of ground only a couple of percentage points each. I mentioned this earlier Mark Maguire is he's actually followed off the ballot because he didn't have enough of percentage of the vote to be able to stay on the ballot. Sammy Sosa still there, but he only got thirty six of four hundred twenty-five possible votes. And I appreciate that. Matt also mentions the veterans committee. It's another way that guys can get into the hall of fame. Even if they don't make it in with via the vote from the baseball writers. In fact, there were a couple of guys Lee Smith Smith was one of them. I remember who the other one is. But there are a couple of guys who made it in this year on this. This goes back to December. When the veterans committee announced its two inductees, but. When you think about the veterans, they're probably less likely to include someone who was a PD user why? Well, because they're from an older generation many of them, and they don't like the fact that their records were erased or eclipsed or replaced by guys in the steroid era. And I certainly understand that if I was inside major league baseball, not as a writer, a member of the media. But that was inside major league baseball. I am confident. I would feel the exact same way. I didn't use PD's. I didn't cheat. So you can say on the outside of the hall of fame looking in. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence here on CBS sports radio. So that's the latest on the class in Cooperstown. We had a big move in in the NFL. And I can't help but wonder. If the chiefs had won the AFC championship and going on to the Super Bowl. We know they wouldn't have made a change on their coaching staff in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl. That's a no brainer. That's a da. But would they have made a change to their defensive coordinator? If they got by the patriots. And. You know, you look back on that game the AFC championship and the patriots offensive line played. So well. But the pass rush from the chiefs, they've got a bear some responsibility. It's not just hey, the old line for the patriots was so good. When you add Chris Jones. Who'd kinda I missed a couple of snaps a little bit of time with injury. You just didn't have the same push. And yes credit the patriots and and their their game plan and their own line play. And all the experience that they bring to the table or not talking about guys in with the chiefs that has zero experience I mean, just in Houston was almost a a non factor in this game. But the the fact that they were so good as a pass rushing rushing team most of the season, especially in home. And they managed just one measly quarterback hit on Tom Brady all game. Ouch. I don't know. How you get over that? So I don't know how things might have been different. Maybe Bob Sutton's job is spared as the defensive coordinator. Or maybe it's not maybe they decided that that was such a weakness throughout the course of the season that the offense was being asked to cover up. You know, the poorest defense. You obviously like I said campfire a guy you're going to the Super Bowl at least not right this second. But maybe there would have been a change in the off season, regardless. Andy Reid would only say change can be a good thing for both parties. And I believe that this is the case here for the chiefs and for Bob. Five hundred twenty four yards given up by the chiefs thirty six first downs to the patriots. And forget the stats forget the the numbers that I could recite to you all of the the single quarterback hit and no sacks really stands out. But the fact that that defense allowed not just a go ahead touchdown in the final. What three and a half minutes of regulation. But how do you ever get over thirteen plays? A trio of third intense converted. And a defense that never gave the ball to Pat Mahomes and the chiefs offense at home in overtime. I don't know how you get over that. I don't something has got to get someone's got to pay fair or not fair. That's just how it goes in sports. And so, Bob Sutton. Is the guy who bears that brunt? Also, this is amazing. And I don't mean amazing like awesome. Yay. Just amazing that there was a microphone on d Ford. As the offsides penalty was called. I remember. Offsides. Was the the call against de that negated that interception that likely could have ended the game could have been a game preserving interception off Tom Brady. It was one of those moments where you can imagine. And maybe wherever you were watching there was this. Oh like that quickly in succession because you thought that there was an interception. Tom Brady throwing an interception at the city late in the fourth quarter. What's? And then as my brother sent me a snap. All it said was O M G because you go from two. Oh my God. There's a flag like, oh, I just felt so bad for D Ford. However, it's inexcusable it's inexcusable if not like he jumped he. Anticipated. He got fooled by a snap count. He lined up offsides. And there is audio. So, you know, NFL network does the I don't remember the exact name of the show, but they Mike up various players, and they have strategic microphones all over the place that they can put together the sound effects montages. I haven't heard the whole thing. I can't wait this kind of stuff. I live for this to hear what the players are saying in the heat of the moment in the coaches and how they're communicating. Oh my gosh. I wonder if they have a microphone anywhere near the official who did not call the pass interference. And was there a conversation with the other members of the officiating crew after the fact, you probably the NFL network would never allow us to see it. Because in fact, the NFL network is partially owned by the NFL. Okay. D- Ford as the penalty is being called on him in the throes of battle. This. I mean, I just oh my goodness. The magnitude of that moment and the pit in his stomach and not his only obviously the rest of the stadium. But can you imagine just being that person and feeling like the entire place is staring at you? And what are those the old southwest commercials? Wanna get away? Yeah. You think? What he's incredulous. Foul is called late in a basketball game. What what what I didn't touch him. Porty? I'm only laughing because I'm full of consternation. I'm not laughing because it's funny. Also, I have a theory as to why the flag was not thrown for pass interference against Nicole Roby calm, and you can tell me what you think I wish I knew what was going through the officials mind at the time. It says the NFL is not going to give us access to that official. Well, then I have to speculate. And our question for tonight, and we'll get back to your calls. I promise. In light of Starbucks expanding its delivery service in huge cities all over the country. Starbucks, which which is already pricey. Is now offering ninety five percent of its menu on Uber eats for a very small fee of two dollars and forty nine cents. So you could very well be paying double for your coffee, but it comes to you. You don't have to go get it, you know, because the Starbucks is like three blocks away. What will you not order online? Where do you draw the line at online ordering or delivery? Is there anything that you will not order to be brought to you? So that you don't have to go get it. I love this topic because we get perspectives from various generations different parts of the country. Various socio, economic groups college students professionals different different day parts. Right. So here we are talking to a lot of third Shifter's, but very soon and backed in in many places in the eastern time zone. People are waking up and getting ready for first shift and a long commute and desperately needing their Coffey. Whether it's Starbucks or something else. So what will you not order online? I don't want. Someone else sniffing my pineapple. I don't want someone else squeezing the tomato. I don't want someone else bringing me a cucumber. Nope. No, grocery shopping online for me. Get your rear and gear and go to the grocery store, you lazy ass. That's what I tell myself. Get off the couch. Go to the grocery store, you will feel so much better. When you're just full of food. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. Upgrading.

"O'clock east coast time. Good to have you with us. I'm Chris more. Indeed. And we'll be here till two when Tony Tony pops in here. For top notch. Entertainment. Sensibly priced Brian Kennedy hall of fame. Ballot just came out. Wow. Brian Kennedy who I like a lot a. Everybody in the pool guy. So he's taken everybody. But I hate the hall of fame in all halls of fame as a sports talk topic. And I only bring it up because it's the first tweet on my tweets right now. In other words, I opened my page. And it's the first thing I saw. So I will read it to you quickly just because people follow Brian, and I like, Brian, and I like the MLB network. And I love his passion. Passion. Is you kids out there? Trying to be whatever you're trying to be have the passion that Brian Kenny has you'll be fine. He has Andrew Martinez. Fred mcgriff. Mike Mussina Marianna Rivera, ROY halladay, Curt Schilling Scott Rowland, Billy Wagner, Andrew Jones. Larry walker. Doesn't have any of the steroid tinted tainted guys. And that's his ballot. So there you go. But we're not talking about that right now we're talking about football coming off of yesterday. And we're going back to the phones Robin freeport up next on the fan up. Hey, how's it going good? What's up? Hey, I agree with you that OT is not perfect. It was a lot better than it used to be with just the field goal wins it, but I just don't like when people like like bash stuff, but don't have a solution. So what's your solution? Because even bashing all time ten minutes. Ten minutes. Ten minutes. Ten minutes play for ten minutes. And yeah. Regulation football ten minutes in the playoffs. So whoever clever way into the field goal wins. No, no over. No sudden death. Oh, so only in the playoffs. Then correct. Correct. Okay. So it's ten minutes at the end of ten minutes, whoever whoever won the ten minutes. So it's it's like a fifth quarter quarter in a way. Okay. Yeah. Okay. That's all I got. There you go Iran. Rochester is next on the fan high IRA ally ya. Good. What's fascinating about this? I see misunderstanding. What people doing they bring things? Previous in the game. Not trying to take absolve the thing that happened last. I think it just putting percentages on what the blame. Baseball example is to close it gives up a two run home or lose the game. But but previous to that they could have had they blew five or they could have had five hundred third in this guy. Struck out in the sticks. Generally, we blame five different sectors. It could be five different factors. This one was thirty five percent and the had a tribute to percents. But this guy was thirty five percent responsible to closer, obviously is very responsible. And in this case, the referee is responsible. But there were other things that happened in the game including drew Brees terrible in the last quarter there. That's right. And so. Factors. On trying to win you over to my side. What I'm trying to tell you is. I don't look at it that way, I'm not saying that you can't or that you shouldn't unless you're saying even in the case of a relief, you'd blame the the closer. Absolutely. I think the game starts with the next batter. Every stinking time. Yes. But you can't it'd be more than one. They're not absolving. Why did your argument was because then you're saying the referees? Don't matter everyone's saying, you can blame the rest re to a certain percent every I think everyone, that's all you. But what's the point? Then then nobody is on the hook you understand that nobody's on the hook man ever know, they're on the hook for ten. Fifty percents of two guys are fifty percents.

"Line Hillsboro, eight six six five four five ninety five ninety five week up informed. Just say Alexa, set my alarm to play nine seventy WFL a every day at six AM. It's eight twenty two on AM Tampa Bay. We're going to try to get Bob buckhorn on one day to talk about the potential for a Tampa Bay walk of fame. We're working hard to try to get a walk of fame. And it's something that have in Saint Louis, very popular there and also in Palm Springs, and of course, in Hollywood, they've got one and I discussed this with Ted Webb last night, Jack. Oh, you did. Fred McGriff is in McGriff has got to go in. No, he can't go in. And you made the argument that if we call someone on -tario in Canada radio know who he is wrong wrong. Fred McGriff played for the Toronto. Blue Jays big up there. Well, if Rondo. Toronto in here. Now, he's got to be known in in San Diego to but keep throwing new cities out there. People in Halifax don't know who is now the yeah. The problem is was what I've said that it ought to be the for athletes should should be if they're in their sports hall of fame that would give you Wade Boggs, LeRoy Selmon Derrick Brooks. I don't know if anybody else is in the hall of fame, we could do a Twitter poll just on that. Do you think that you should be able to make campus walk of fame if you haven't been inducted into the hall of fame in your respective sport? Yeah. Because otherwise you're going to have a long. My bad about a Gillian. Athletes around here. Particularly baseball players. Al Lopez could be and I think he's in the hall of fame. Tino martinez. Not a hall of Famer, no not a hall of fame. Everyone knows who he is though in in the country. But again, he doesn't make make it as a you. Don't wanna have too many athletes in here. It should be movie stars and TV personalities. I'm thinking of some of them here. Ferdie Pacheco, Randy savage. Brittany snow? The actress George Steinbrenner Stephen stills the singer. Yup. Channing Tatum anyone from Clearwater credence revival. Ernest Ivy Thomas junior, you know, what he did they live in Sarasota, Jeff, I guess that doesn't count. You're right. Bay area Ernest Ivy Thomas junior was one of the flag raisers at it would Jima and from here Mel Tillis slim Whitman Patrick Wilson that what about Gallagher the comic. Good question loggers from here from Tampa. He falsifies Hank Ballard Colonel Tom Parker who was also on the Palm Springs walk of fame. For some reason. He's the guy that was the genius behind Elvis Presley and journal. Colonel Parker Colonel Tom Parker. He was the dogcatcher here in town. Dogcatcher and went on to work with Elvis got him down here for concerts at Curtis fiction, and and the old armory. Do you think anybody in Scotland knows who McGrath is no? He's got an MCSE for. If they know just not Fred, but we got Jimmy Wales. Maybe I don't know. He I don't know if he actually lived here or just visited here, Jack Kerouac. Wow. Of the beat generation dig name. I didn't know he was from here. Well, he lived here for a long time. Now, do both Gallagher's get in or only the original Gallagher with the second one's his brother. Yes. By just the first one he is the originator the first one. Yeah. And another one I didn't even know about never even heard of and I saw some old movie. And I looked up on. I am db who she was. And it said it was Evelyn Brent. And it said born in born Tampa, Florida as of what never heard of her, and I looked it up and she was born and schooled in Tampa. So that would make her eligible for the wall thing about Aaron Carter. Yup. Backstreet boys. Yup. Backstreet boys. They would be eligible, Nick. But not Aaron Aaron didn't really make it. It was just like a brief thing for a little while Nick Mehta. Okay, fine. But how about this whole Cogan in right? Yeah. No doubt first ballot. What about Brooke HOGAN his daughter who's very famous from. She possibly down the road. What you have to do is get a committee that would you start out with maybe ten stars on the walk of fame, and you add maybe five year three a year or something like that. And you gotta get a committee that votes on who's going to be on that walk of fame initially like the top ten percent. You know, get into the hall initially and then five people moving on forward every year. Yeah. I love it. So would babe zaharias make that list? Yeah. Babe. Would definitely make. No, we think that she's big enough. But is she known anywhere else outside the bay area. Oh, yeah. In the days, she was in the day, but historically go. What she did was historic. What was done was historic there? Yeah. She was on the first female champions. I guess back in the day. But. I definitely think about Dr Paul pallbearer, probably not. I liked him. Yeah.

I like me too. And you start looking back on some of these numbers. Just real quick five time all star. He was a World Series champion and ninety five three times silver slugger award winner twice. He led the National League in home runs eighty nine and ninety two a lifetime. Batting average to eighty four home runs. Four ninety three percent.

Eddie murphy. So he he is he's the he's the leader being the hall. He's the league he has the most home runs of anybody not associated with steroid era. That is not in the hall of fame. Does that make sense that too long of a description, for example, it is? With him at four ninety three. Lou gehrig. Poor guy next up Eddie Murray. He's in. Yeah. Right. Like, Larry said Culp, Lou Gehrig. Gotta Lou Gehrig's disease. Nazi that comedy. Not see that coming. He said there's a disease down there with your name. Tough rip.
