Thanksgiving Is a Day to Commit Yourself to a Life of Gratefulness

"Is a day to commit yourself to a life of Thanksgiving to a life of gratefulness. And that may mean that you talk and talk to somebody at work that you notice really ever talks to somebody. Maybe if somebody that you know in your church or your synagogue or your mosque or maybe in your neighborhood or at the ball fields or think GMs where you take your kids to go play, that you notice a family that maybe struggling just a little bit. What if just a kind word was all that they needed? Somebody to say, hey, last up, but I'm here. And if you just never need to talk, I got a cup of coffee, I would love to help you.

"While replenishing every increasingly precious resource, like the reduction of soil loss by 40% with every acre grown in a world where sustainability matters more than ever, we need all the help we can get, and there's no greater resource than the capable hands of American corn farmers. All right, let's talk about the best overall moves made this off season, which I'll lump in with the which one player acquisition will make the biggest impact because this is really between two teams and two players. The GM's rate Cleveland's off season as the best 41% say the Cavs made the best overall moves this off season largely based on what they did in acquiring dot of a Mitchell. The one Minnesota came in second tied for second with Philadelphia and Utah, Utah, the best overall moves. Okay. All right, I guess if you're looking for Victor went by Yama, they did. Well, look, I can see that one in the sense of especially from a GM's perspective if they agree that you know what? It was the right time to blow it up and I love the hole they got, then you can say that. It makes sense. I get that, I guess. So the next one is which player acquisitions make the biggest impact. Again, Cleveland Donovan Mitchell, 59%, Rudy Gobert, 31%. I agree with the GMs that the Cavaliers made the best moves because I think the Cavaliers, not just this season, but for the foreseeable future, are set up really well to have the core of a championship team. It's probably not going to happen this year, but if Donovan Mitchell is happy in Cleveland and they can make it work with him there, then you're looking at Mitchell Darius Garland backcourt Evan mobley Jarrett Allen, Isaac Korra. I mean, they have the pieces to be a title contending team in the next two or three years. But I think Gobert is now the biggest impact next year. Because I think Gobert is going to take Minnesota from a play in team to a top four team in the Western Conference. And that talk is really good. Top for this season are top four eventually. No, top four, top 5 this season I'll say. Top 5 this season. Because look, one thing Rudy's proven he can do is completely overhaul a defense. And help elevate a team to the top of the regular season standings. He did that in Utah just a couple of seasons ago. And look, you got Anthony aborts ready to break out. Carl Anthony towns is a star. You've got some pieces there. Russell's still there. All they need is kind of that defensive backstop. Now they have it. So I think Rudy's going to make them a significantly better team.

"Is a 100% healthy, I mean he's an all star, he's an all NBA candidate, like there's a lot of, you know, a lot of accolades coming Zion's way if he can stay healthy. I mean, he would be my obvious choice if we're going to put someone like him on this list. it's interesting. So as you noted mobley Cunningham, Edwards Zion. But then they also receiving votes. It just kind of reflects how people view this like Anthony Davis got some votes, and it's like, well, Anthony Davis is an established perennial star when healthy, but GMs are clearly looking at this as all right, here's a guy who had a really rough season and struggled with injury whatever and they're expecting a bounce back. Rudy Gobert somehow got a vote or two. I don't know. It was probably one vote. These are probably all one vote each to be honest. But that's kind of weird. How is Rudy Gobert at the stage of his career having a breakout season? Is Tim Conley voting for his own guys? I don't think you could that was happening. Calvin. It was Justin zanuck voting voting for Rudy after he traded him. Yeah, yeah. Tyrese Halliburton got a vote. That's a good choice. Kamina got a vote. I think that's interesting choice. Tyrese maxi, Ben Simmons got a vote. You know, again, missed an entire season and so it's kind of the, he's gonna bounce back and be great again and maybe be in the running for all NBA again. So it's interesting. I mean, the ones that they picked are mostly the younger guys who have shown some flashes and are ready to really burst out, right? That makes sense to me. I think those are all good names to have on that list. I got no issues there. Yeah. All right, the best player at each position. Most of these no surprise, Steph Curry as the best point guard, Kevin Durant as the best small forward Giannis as the best power forward jokic gets the nod as the best center. I did think was interesting, Howard? Best shooting guard in the NBA. Yeah. Devin Booker with Phoenix gets 45%. Luka Dončić is second at 28%. But he was the GM's favorite to win MVP. I don't quite follow that logic. How about this? How is Devin Booker the best two guard when Luca is the MVP? Are we not, I guess you could say are we not qualifying Luca as a point guard? He's splitting votes at multiple positions. That one kind of threw me. So there's a lot of confusion potential with these, right? So part of this is, look, we are in this, it's not a positionless era. It's a position fluid era. I hate when people say it's not positionless. Positions still exist to an extent. They're just more fluid than they've ever been. Finished second among for best point guard. He finished second for best shooting guard. He finished third for best small forward. So we know like Luca is built like a small forward, but he plays like a point guard and is usually listed as point guard. He is their point guard. Buddy scores enough that I guess some people at shooting guard on their ballots, Jayson Tatum, the aforementioned Jason Tatum also received a vote for best shooting guard and Jason Tatum has never really been a guard in this league by any stretch, right? He's always been never.

"A bit of a stumble last season to say the least. And so that torpedoes it, but you don't see that coming necessarily. All right, let me tell you where they whiffed. They whiffed not putting Jayson Tatum on this list. I think Jayson Tatum is more than a dark horse candidate because I look at the Celtics and if they can figure out their coaching issues, they're going to be tough. They are loaded from top to bottom, they might have to, it might have some issues early on dealing with the absence of Robert Williams, but you got Horford, you got grant Williams, you got some pieces there that can help you survive that. Jayson Tatum, I think he's going to be one of those guys this year that averages close to 30 points a game. I think he's going to have a monster offensive season. And when you couple that with the fact that the Celtics like the sixers and like the other top teams in the east have a great chance of finishing the regular season with that number one seed, I think Tatum deserves more consideration. I think he's going to be inside the top 5 this year. And if he stays healthy and plays like 75 ish games at the level he was playing in the second half of last season, I think Tatum has a great chance of winning MVP. I'm surprised, frankly, you go down the list, Steph Curry had 3% of the vote. I think Tatum deserved that 3%. I think Tatum because of what he can do offensively and because of what he was doing at the end of last season, not the finals, the end of last regular season. I think he deserved more consideration. That was the one area that I thought the GM's missed on. Tatum finished 6th in the MVP voting last season and that was a tough year because the Celtics obviously started off pretty rough and they caught fire later. And so that probably hurt his candidacy a little bit. And you know, it was a strong field jokic, of course, one in his second year in a row, and then he was followed by embiid, Giannis, Booker Dončić, and then Tatum, and then he was followed by morant curry. I mean, a lot of those same names are going to be on ballots.

"48% believe that Luka Dončić will be the MVP. Now, Howard, I think Dončić is going to have a monster year. Put up the best numbers of anybody in the NBA. What concerns me is an argument that you and I have had in the past about team success and how that should reflect on the MVP. Dallas made the Conference Finals last year. But they lost Jalen Brunson. They didn't really replace him. They replaced him internally, you know, with some guys, they're assuming Tim Hardaway comes back and is healthy in a couple of other things. And then all that. Yeah, didn't what he steps up all that. But I mean, it's not a stretch to say the Mavericks are like a 5 or a 6 seed in the Western Conference. And the number of guys that have won MVP on those types of teams, you can count on one hand. I mean, most recently, I mean, look, jokic has done it. Obviously, Russell Westbrook has done it, but it's rare that you see a player on a team that's not inside the top three win the MVP. So it did surprise me a little bit. The GM's almost believe that Luke is just gonna go off, like he's gonna average a triple double, do it in an efficient way and have one of the best statistical seasons that we've ever seen because that's the only way I can see Luca winning the MVP. Well, first thing is that the GMs are as bad at this as the rest of us are. Though they make a lot of really good money for being basketball experts at a higher level than you and I are. The GM survey, if you go back year after year, I think they're success record on these predictions is about as good as ours, maybe even worse. So there's that. I do also think that they're not thinking of it in the way that we do, right? The ballots are in our hands. The media votes on MVP for better or worse. And the way we have traditionally done it for decades with a few exceptions, right? Jokic last season, and I didn't have them at the top. I had Giannis at the top. Because of the winds, Westbrook several years ago, most of the time, it's a player off of a 50 plus win team who's on a clear contender. Usually first or second, maybe third in the conference. And so jokic was a non traditional choice last season. Westbrook was a nontraditional choice the year he wanted. I think the GMs are not thinking about the way we do. They're just looking like, who's the best player in the game right now, or who's great, who's going to have the kind of year that's going to excite people.

"Every increasingly precious resource, like the reduction of soil loss by 40% with every acre grown in a world where sustainability matters more than ever, we need all the help we can get, and there's no greater resource than the capable hands of American corn farmers. All right, I want to talk about the Lakers briefly before we get into the GM survey. I was at wanna say Staples. I was like crypto dot com arena. On Monday night, saw the Lakers opener against the kings. Look, Anthony Davis looked great. I wrote about him for SI dot com on Tuesday. I think he's in position to have a good bounce back year. LeBron James going to be fine, but I watched that Laker team Howard and all the questions I had coming in are still the same questions. Do they have enough shooting to make it work with this group? Is Russell Westbrook going to fit in. I saw them bring Patrick Beverly. He was the first guy off the bench. I didn't make any sense to me. Patrick Beverly should be starting for this team and being that defensive point of attack that darvin hamke is preaching about. I mean, look, the final score doesn't really matter that the second half was played with all second unit third unit guys. And in the first half, the Lakers played pretty well overall as a team, but I watched how the kings were defending the Lakers. They were really coming playing off a lot of their perimeter players, and that's gonna be a theme all season long. I mean, Kendrick nunn has looked great this week. I mean, Lakers coaches have raved about how Kendrick nunn has looked and he basically is. The Lakers biggest free agent acquisitions, they didn't play a minute. Last year, but I've got major concerns still about how the Lakers create enough space. So Davis LeBron can operate without seeing two or three bodies every time they go to the basket. Yeah, look, I'm going to need to see a lot of Laker pre season success actually scratch that. I'm going to need to see a lot of Laker regular season success in a couple of weeks before I buy in. You alluded to the GM survey earlier, the GMs are not buying it either. There is not a single question on the GM survey that indicated any level of confidence by the league's GMs in what the Lakers have and where they're headed.

And 13 years you won't be able to buy a new gas powered car. Only electric cars. So Bjorn lomborg has analyzed the effect of the first of the. Shoveling of hundreds of billions of dollars to the to the green industry. Did we ever have anything comparable? Of the government supporting private industry like this. I mean, there was a bailout in 2008 of the car industry. Of GM, but that was a bailout. I don't recall anything like this, certainly not in the numbers that we have.

My reaction is it shows you the respect that people evaluators and people who play and coach and GM in this league, the respect they have for that guy as a player because that guy, unlike most of these guys, most of these guys are pretty much Bel cow guys. That dude was a true split. So you're talking about a guy that truly split the carries. And this league has gone that way to where there's different guys that have different skill sets and play in different packages and different situations. But the majority of these guys, if you're going to run it 25 times, they're getting 18 or 19 of those carries. And javonte was truly a 50 50 guy.

To have a guy who's awesome on the ice or on the field, be able to spot talent and have and have a knack for putting a team together and understanding the levers to pull in the buttons to push, 'cause a lot of guys man, a lot of guys are just instinctively so good and they can't explain why and they can't put it together and I know some will accuse John Elway of having a little bit of that later in his career, but he brought us another Super Bowl as an executive and Joe sacking, this award much deserved to me, you look at Jared bednar and that's Jared bednar is just a reflection of Joe sakic's approach and just trusting him to get his team on the right track. A guy who was not well known and gave him the reins and so much deserved a joke sacking and let's go get another

"Across as this very serious cerebral guy, which there's a big part of Bill zito's world at a 100% is like that. But you know what was nice in that interview was getting them to chuckle a little bit and show a little bit more of the lighter side of Bill zito because we don't always see it. No, but how about when I asked him about his career in Yale? And he's like, I can't hear you. Sorry. And I'm dumb enough to pick up and keep repeating the question. But just thinking, like, how many people chart a career path? Yeah. And then actually get to the follow it. And get to what his goal was, which was to be a general manager. I also found it really interesting like how sincere his remembrances were of the people in Columbus. The people that helped them there from John Davidson and yarmouk line and his relationship with torts. And then moving on to Florida and talking about how they've integrated hockey and analytics and sunny made to how popular he is and how that has to be the way. That everybody feels you're on the same team. It's not those guys in us guys. And I just, I don't know. I really feel like they've put together this kind of eclectic varied group. Yeah. And certainly that group has accumulated a lot of talent that was after the studs that were already in place. So put your Bill zito GM of the Florida Panthers had on for a moment. Man, you just, you want to add, right? Because you just want to make this team as deep and as good as they possibly can be for the second half. And obviously for march to the Stanley Cup. But is it just as important to want to resist in doing that? Because why rock about here? This group, including Andrew brunette, is doing a fine job right now. Well, I would say I would say they would look to add a defenseman I don't think you would upset too too much if you were able to do that. Here's the thing, how many times does a team get to be in the top 6 or 7 in the league when you go you know what those 6 or 7 probably have the best chance? And they do. You can't always wait for next year. Every once in a while, you got to jump in the water. And you know, if it costs someone tip it, man, they don't want to move on tip it. But if it costs them that or a first rounder and you can get a legit D man,.

"We've got four to Panthers GM Billy zito. He's going to join us coming up shortly on the podcast man. Drake. They're the greatest show on ice right now. I mean after game, if you're a team struggling with generate generating offense and I don't, you know, not every team as a world class talent, the Florida Panthers have, but just watch. You know, just watch a period of how that team attacks. It's wave after wave after wave. Well, and just when you think you've got them figured out, mason marchment throws a 6 pointer up on the board. So while everyone's looking at uberto and barkov and duclair, for plus 6 for you, that's a pretty nice line. No kidding and I you know I'm looking at his contract $800,000 this year. And then he's an unrestricted free agent. So his timing is pretty good. Yeah, you know what though? You know, and you know we get into we'll get into it with Billy zito a little bit, but that's one of the things the Panthers have done really well is they found value contracts and made it work for them. You know, they everybody knew that Carter for Hague was close to being a good player. Well, they got him at a really reasonable price and he's given them two really good years. I do see some people saying, well, yeah, you know, but next year they're going to have to pay these guys. Well, that's fine. So maybe you can't. And they move on to another place, and that's where you're scouting has to be sharp because you got to replace them. Or you've got to draft well. And Matt Florida has got some just some exciting players to watch and man 8 goals on Columbus. It was in the second period in your life real. All right, well, Florida path. There's general manager Billy zito.

"Excited about that than anything really for him and for organization or for our fans. I'm going to set this one up and it's not going to be the greatest form in question. But you've got clay coming back, you've got stuff, draymond has been, as you mentioned, kind of that four on three thing and how people would blitz staff like you had the perfect outlet. To have draymond kind of now be a decision maker on top of the big guards you had. So you have this group that's really special that had one of the most intense one of the most historic runs in the history of this game. And then you're adding three lottery picks to it wise men come in and moody this past year. And I think from the outside, a lot of us make mistakes is that, well, hey, if they have these older group of the three guys, then what are they doing with the lottery picks? They got to flip them, they got a trade, and they could have everybody match the same age timeline, which I think is one of the most overrated. I don't even think it's overrated. I just think it's idiotic to be like, hey, everybody has to be within three years of each other to have a roster to make any sense, but people say it all the time. What has it been like balancing probably some of the opportunities that you could have had to have somebody fit the timeline a little bit more where it's like, are we going for it? What are we building? You have this two year void. I mean, it's a very odd story and a roster where I think a lot of people have a lot of opinions about what it is that you're trying to do. And maybe it's really simple. Maybe it's just, hey, we had lottery picks, we took guys that we liked and then we have them on the team. So how do you balance all these different things and trying to feel like you're maximizing the three older guys while also making sure that you're making the best long-term decisions, which isn't really an easy thing to do. Yeah, so a lot there, right? Yeah. Like I said, it was going to be a bad question. You know what? It's not a bad question. It's a lot to process and respond to. Shaping a roster is like a puzzle, right? We're lucky we got those corner pieces and stuff. You know, draymond clay and you know those are hard to find and you know even wagons you could argue now and you gotta fill this thing in. And no GM in any sport does that perfectly. And.

"At LinkedIn dot com slash advantage. That's LinkedIn dot com slash advantage to post your job for free. Terms and conditions apply. Yeah, definitely. That's a pretty good way of looking at it. Good good stuff here on the final app weekly with Quinn Howe. I don't know if you've ever seen the incident tracker at Toby Christi dot com. The conversation sparred from your Texas incident getting to pit road last year, that's actually what caused me. That was the catalyst of what started me tracking instance each week. A lot of people were critical of you and Brad Keselowski mentioned demoting drivers who were involved in a lot of bad accidents. Brett Griffin was very vocal about you specifically. The incident was bad, but I didn't see anything that weren't a demotion. Do you know where you fell on the list of drivers with incidents last season? It has to believe that Texas was my last incident and I should be one of the drivers of the viewers. Yeah, yeah, you are. So on the list, you have 27 ahead of you with more incidents, and you were tied for 28th with several other drivers with just 7 incidents last season. It's just something I found interesting with all the conversation about potential recklessness and your driving style being called into question. I just found that interesting. With the Texas and his family down a bonehead move, there was so many things that went wrong from communications standpoints and the mirror on the window net side falling off earlier in the race. And I was just put in a perfect storm to fail. And I failed. And it was a bonehead move, but however I came out and said that. And I was up front with that and I didn't try to hide from that. But at the same time, I know I'm not the first driver to have ever done that. And I'm not the last driver to have ever done that. It was just my job to take credit. For what I did wrong and go back to my theme and figure out what went wrong, you could make it never happened again. And that's what we did. And the fact that the media or other names went to come out at me, they're trying to make mistakes too. It's all human error. We're out here running 405 106 hundred mile races for 30 at least a year. Shot by side, you're going to have accident and I understand what being a rookie that you're going to get picked on a little more than others. On every little mistake you make. And I just have to kind of put that behind me. And being in the Cup Series you're on your own a spotlight or pedestal if you go that people are going to pick at you and that's just because you're one authority and you need to gain that respect and say that you belong. And that's what kind of strive for heading into the remainder of 2020 and I felt like we did a good job doing so. And that's what I kind of attitude ahead towards it going into 2021 as well. All right, Quinn, one last question with your new 8 ball whisky sponsorship. What activations do you guys have going forward? Will there be some sort of special Quinn half deal where if you finish in a certain finishing spot, fans will get a certain amount of the bottle like a discount or anything like that? You know, we're working on a lot of cool things with 8 ball as far as promos like that obviously we're going to have a bunch of cool apparel with the 8 ball logo. We're going to do some hero card giveaways. We're working on doing a deal where like we said if I finish in a certain position, we're going to try to help out some of the ease disabled racers and getting them the equipment they need to be able to race online. And we're just going to continue to add stuff in and grow as it becomes bigger. And I'm looking forward to going out west where they're based out of here. And meeting all the great team that they have and all the great places that they've already become very popular. And I think it's going to be very beneficial as they come across the U.S. to grow with me and be a part of my team and looking forward to seeing where the things take us. I mean, the sky is the limit. And it's just something that's refreshing to be able to have that support behind you to be able to have a company that believes in what we're doing. It's awesome just to see new companies come to the sport regardless. Quinn, good luck the rest of the season, and thank you so much for taking time out on the final app weekly. Yeah, appreciate it. I've been saying that. We got the magic 8 ball in the car hopefully we can turn our left around, but I appreciate you having me on. Like us at Facebook dot com slash the final lap. Like us..

Yeah i don't know they could say that I'm gonna go with the jazz i am. I I was not expecting that like this man like i say i say i think the billy will finish in the top three. And you're like whoa. They were the best team last year. The jazz get the best record. Lussier did shaves their day of roster like it's not it's not that surprising that maybe a win the whole thing. It's a jump certainly. It's not the same thing as saying that you think they'll finish with the best record. Even in the survey there were a pretty decent chunk of gm that said they thought the jesuit finish the best record in the west. Yeah i just kind of feel like it. They address things they. And i've said this on our pod before i felt like they quietly addressed stuff. That really messed them up in the playoffs. And whether that's enough to get them all the way over the hump we'll see but they certainly addressed that. I think whiteside will be something that will have to sit and watch. We'll be a day by day process but they have. I mean they have enough offense in my opinion. They have one of the best defenses. If not the best defense this year It'll be interesting. They have small ball fives now that they can roll out. And just you know. And i i i use..

Assembly lines fell into one last question you said. Gm is number three right now in. Ev market share in the us. What is the number to volkswagen. Eleven percent so right now and and those guys are one two three worldwide by the way they are one one-two-three three worldwide. They're one to three here in the us but make no mistake. Tesla is way ahead. Sixty three percent market share. And we asked the automotive. Where do you think tesla is by twenty thirty. And they said look. They won't have as much market share by twenty thirty but they still will have a very strong market share by twenty thirty in their opinion. All right phil. Thank you phil. Abo- we look forward to the interview with the cfo of gm. That's i on. Cnbc here on bass money. Tim seymour how do you trae. Gm the stock did and move all too much on all this news. Yeah we've heard a lot of this news right and also when someone tells me something's going to happen by the end of the decade and it's early in the decade the decade almost just started. You know i mean. I think there's a lot to prove here i think. Gm has a lot to prove. I think gm has already made significant commitment to autonomous. I think the putting the money after the business and again some of the software and services but the announcement that bright drop which is their last mile services business is going to be a ten billion dollar revenue business by the end of the decade. Really exciting but a long long way to go. And i think that's what i said. Yesterday was the market almost values. Gm now like their core business the internal combustion engine business actually has a very limited terminal value and at some point. It's going to be obsolete. Well jim knows that. And i think in all of their profession about they're going to be x by x is great look ninety billion from ten billion in revenue by the end of so from twenty-three they expect to be roughly ten billion in revenue ninety billion by the end of the decade. If you wanna do the math and have some fun with this tesla's somewhere around forty eight forty nine billion estimate sales in two thousand and twenty one. That's not necessarily all be sales at some of the other services to but and tesla's a seven hundred seventy two billion dollars market cap so clearly to companies that are valued very differently They probably should be. I've certainly pointed out that. I think tesla times not really an auto company based upon that valuation. But this gm's day and it's great news. Haven't we heard a lot this news. Before as a gm bowl and owner of the stock. Great stuff i think. They need to put their head down and continue to do this that concept of recurring revenue. Karen seems very appealing Even though this is sort of a long ways off as tim would would put it. But let's let's say we we get to twenty thirty and they checked all the boxes. Does it deserve tesla valuation. It doesn't need to get a test evaluation to have a good do from here. I don't know if it does the other part of that. It's an excellent question. What's the tesla valuation. At that time. If gm does all the things the gm says they can do right so tesla's not going to have a forty six percent better market share than gm at that time if gm can do what it says. I agree with tim though. I mean it's. Gm is a shelby story even when they show the numbers right now right now and still. It still trades it a little multiple so the idea that we're going to jump on and get really excited about twenty. Thirty is sort of hard to fathom because even right now when they put very good numbers. I feel like it doesn't really get so much respect but I remain with tim bullish long. I would have thought this they have been telegraphing this But i thought those were good numbers. We'll see we'll see. I think we'll get a few cars will start. I'm really interested in how the lyric does which is their cadillac. Ev that's coming out in twenty twenty to guide does your thinking around gm change much versus twenty four hours ago now. The jam has put forth targets for twenty thirty. I mean could you put out targets for twenty thirty on your i mean. That's that's a long ways off is the point. I actually could be ninety seven. I'm sure on the name tag. No no the short answer is absolutely not but let's just give them the benefit of the that first of all you know. Karen mentions show me story. They should move all their facilities to missouri. That would be brilliant. We're moving to the show me state and we will show you i folks i mean i don't know jim is watching. But that's pretty clever. And if you ask me and the double revenues by then that sounds great but really what you're talking about in that period of time is eight and a half percent growth rate issue which is fine so you have to ask yourself the question you ask. Karen did they deserve a test evaluation. Absolutely not but based on that growth. What is the right valuation and i would submit. It's not where we are now. It's somewhere closer to ten or eleven times earnings. Which again gets you given the seven dollars. They're gonna earn ish a seven dollar stock. I don't think that's implausible. And i think that's pretty realistic given the environment that we find ourselves in i mean the tasks evaluation has a little bit of You know pixie dust if you will. I mean it's got a lot. These other sort of bets. The battery technology in terms of the power wall and other uses of the battery technology. Not just an auto company steve. I'm wondering what your thoughts on tests are given the low valuation that gm and for three or four in there to have right so so a cabin interesting point and i. I think this is the only thing that you can glean from any of this. Is that when we get there. Tesla is that sixty three percent market. Share now i believe phil said so that market share is going to drop from now till then that's my takeaway whether it's fact or not. That's the way i look at it. Having said that. I think it is pretty exciting when you look at a company like gm talking about two billion in revenue going to twenty five billion by twenty thirty in basically services that we've seen what they can do with on star now..

"Now i was kind of making it sound like you get to just like rest and relax here. But that's actually not the case. You guys are getting a bunch of guys off the injured list which is fantastic. I'm in some ways Probably just as good as as a major trades with the names involved with stella longoria and belt but you are gonna have some really difficult roster moves to make. How are you guys approaching. All these moves to make both on the twenty five man and on the forty twelve twenty six twenty six man roster and the forty man. I think it is a sign of health for this organization You know though. Those decisions are very difficult and We spend a lot of time and energy thinking through them and thinking about what's going to put our our twenty six man in the best possible position to perform but at the end of the day It is a. It's a blessing to have those those challenges. It's it's Those are the types of decisions that you wanna have So one one thing. I'm looking forward to in the second. Half as you mentioned is getting the belts and longoria back. I think we already have a deep lineup. they're going to lengthen our lineup. Even more i was even talking about talking to brandon belt about some of the lineups. That cap was drawing up with with everyone when we're at full strength and so i'm personally really excited about watching us play at full strength The the other thing about you know who who's a sort of odd man out here I think one thing to remember is that you know if if you know. Reinstatement off the injured list. pushed someone back to sack There's a good chance that we're going to see him again. You know there's a good chance that your injury or underperformance or some other new unexpected dynamic forces them back into action in the big leagues and we. We've certainly had some some guys like jason bossa riding the the shuttle quite a bit so far in the first half but we have a great thing going in this organization in which you know the twenty six men who men who are up feel like they are well positioned to win every night but also the Roster players in sacramento. feel like. they're they're just a phone call away from from coming up and contributing in a big spot. At what my next question. Maybe you're foreshadowing a little bit. Because i was going to ask about You know there's always sort of this choice you in any other team house between. Do you try to maintain maximum roster flexibility and and when you make roster decisions You know try to us. Guys that have options rather than designating for assignment. What's the line sometimes between retaining maximum roster flexibility and potentially choosing a guy who has made me performed better but does have options. It's it's a factor. I think it's a very situation. Situationally specific You know we've we've often up it for both pass. So far and a handful of incision sometimes we will preserve A guy with without options who can contribute in other ways And and you know an optional player has to go down but also you know as we did recently when when we designated Mytalk men have gone. Have gone the other way so i think for us. The priority is winning here. The priority is building the best twenty six man roster to match up against You know an opposing starter. Every night and sometimes that does come into play as well sometimes are upcoming schedule and the opponents and starters at work facing will influence those decisions. If we have a string of lieutenant stars coming up or we have string a right handed started coming up. Sometimes that will affect the position playing core that we choose to keep at any decision point speaking of of talk men and getting him through waivers. Is there some sort of science to that. Like when to risk maybe a guy running a guy through waivers or not does it or is it always just a best guess we talk about the signs of it. I think we overestimate our our ability to read the signs out there. And i think we think we have more control than we actually do when it comes to getting a guy for waivers but specifically in talks case where we're excited that he got through waivers ninety six day giant. We're looking forward to him. Getting more bathroom sacked than he did in san francisco and getting back on track for us. Yeah i mean. He obviously contributed pretty significantly while he was in san francisco. Protect particularly defensively. Also been grand slam and It seemed to have some good clutch at bats. I know that he was working on things. Offensively how much more will he be able to do that. In that setting rather than trying to implement you know maybe some new things at the big league level. I think there are finite number of at bats that are available in the big leagues and I think we ran into a situation with mike in which A lot of those at bats were going to two other players who were performing very well So you know. Fortunately he'll be able to to get a lot more bats in sac and i think that'll help him You know locke's swing back in to help us. The other important consideration here is now that we're past the trade deadline. We have very few levers all to acquire players as talented as mytalk men. So it's a really big deal when a player like that gets through waivers or any any other player that you know may get through waivers in the future for us So we don't take that lightly and and his Our ability to to send him. Sacramento is an option for us. Moving forward is really important from a depth and upside samporn passing. Now there's about two months left in the regular season. What do you see as the keys for your team. Obviously built a little bit of a lead here in the national league west Very tough nationally league west and have had baseball's best record for quite a while here. How do you. How does this team maintain that hate to give the cliche answer but our number one priority. Right now is health. I think we if we stay healthy. We're gonna be pretty pretty darn good team down the stretch. And i i love the personalities that we have in the clubhouse. I i love The the even distribution of talent up and down our our roster. And i love how dynamic are our lineup is You know even when we face a starter who has one two three first inning. Feels like you just blink. And he's he's already at sixty three pitches in the third inning. Those we feel are are stable skills. That will continue as long as we stay healthy. So i think for us where we're focusing most on on staying healthy Managing the load on a lot of our players especially our veteran players down the stretch to keep them productive and just continuing to do some of the things that that got us. Here in verse lewis. Now there's more tough tough calls to make in the off season. I it's jumping way ahead and i think we talked about last time you were on on the podcast too. But now we're adding kris bryant into the mix there on keeping potentially a group together. That's that's pretty special and trying to keep that group intact. How do you wind up prioritizing. Things like that when you do have So many really major contributors who are free agents or or. Maybe have a team option or.

"And the starting pitching market. I we we have a lot of confidence in our current rotation over the last four months. We've seen our starters go out and give us a chance to win on a nightly basis Additionally web us throwing the ball about as well as anyone right now and we're committed to giving him the runway to continue to grow into a dependable starter for us. I think he has a sub two year in his last eight starts which is impressive against anyone at this level. But it's even more impressive. When you consider the the opponents he faced during that that stretch and we spent many hours talking through our rotation and our belief in webby. I think at the end of the day we wanted to add a starter are only two options would be to go with a six man rotation or to move someone to the bullpen After talking about we didn't feel that either option was a costly solution here. And finally you know to to answer question more directly I think a very important point here is if you look around the league right now. There aren't many teams that have five starters who give them a chance to win every night. If you flip through the box scores on any given night you'll see a collection of bullpen days. Call up spots. Orders players who are option or designated after one star and swing men who are forced into starting roles. It's a very challenging time to build a stable rotation right now and there isn't an endless supply starters out there go and grab for reasonable acquisition costs. I think the prices out there were very high for starter. I think you saw a starters that moved commanded some pretty stiff Prospect packages to acquire them at the end of the day. I think we feel very comfortable with with the way our rotations performing right now I don't think we're naive to think that will only have five starters for the rest of the season that that probably won't happen. There will be unexpected issues. That pop up and i think we may try to manage workloads for our starters and keep them fresh five skipping. Start here and there but we feel really good about them right now. They're performing top four rotation in the game right now. We felt like The best way to use our resources would be to go out and grab a guy like wadia. Grab a guy like chris. Riots to bolster our team. Were you in pretty heavily on on some of Maybe some of the more prominent names. I don't think it's all that appropriate for me to comment on our level of engagement With any other players that we didn't get moreover it's hard to tell if you're in heavy with a player because you don't really know if you get them until the very end So kind of difficult to speculate on that one. Yeah but certainly you were. You were talking about some of the top guys on the market. I'm assuming and to some extent. I think it's safe to assume we we talk about everybody in the room We're certainly in the room long enough. So very cagey okay. So talking about the starting pitching and the depth. You touched on that but obviously we've seen here lately so a little bit of some wobbles from guzman a little bit of a wobble from di sclafani. How much of a concern is that when you don't have a great wealth of options potentially with the starting to pitching depth i mean. It's you have sanchez. Now is a long man in the bullpen. Tyler beatty potentially. Sammy longs getting stretched back out. And i'm assuming that's got kasmir. We'll come back After the olympics are concluded but How do you see those those guys as possible Fill ins and what. What do you make of what guzman and sclafani of kind of been running into post break. Liz ride irish. Santa question about gaza induced afande. I i look at it as a commentary on their work product to date. I think those two guys have set expectations so high for us with the way. Certainly that guzman performed last year. Then this year and then you'll have quickly diesel. Johnny established himself as one of our top starters. This year I think you know the wobbly starts as you described them the the past couple times of. I don't think those are concerned for us. We have a ton of faith in both of those guys as individuals faith in our fishing infrastructure to help them make adjustments. I think you saw kevin gaza and make some adjustments after the first inning in his last. Start that that Allowed him to to command stuff a little bit better for. It's not a concern right now. with respect to the search depth starting options that that you mentioned We're excited to see those guys. We think there may be opportunities for them to start in the big leagues in the near future. And we have a lot of confidence that they'll be able to come up and pitch well for us Dislike you've seen of them do so far earlier in the year. Fantastic the rest of the division mates annoys particularly the dodgers. obviously had. How do you see the division now after the trade deadline. I think we're we're pretty excited about where we stand right now. again you know i. I've sort of been expressing my confidence in this team throughout this interview. Because that's how we look at them. We feel like we can play with anyone right now. I think we demonstrated that the first four months and we we have a nice little lead on on the padres daughters now But that's that doesn't mean that we can get complacent and and stop doing some of the things that that got us here.

"Hello and welcome to the giants slash podcast san francisco chronicle podcast on major league baseball and the san francisco giants on the chronicle feet writer susan's lesser and we are joined again by general manager. Scott harris scott. Thanks for joining us. Especially right after the trade deadline. Of course. that's what we love to talk to you about Happy trade deadline passing. I'm sure that that in the draft both being over a little bit early for you guys. Yeah absolutely thanks for having me on. I looking forward to catching up on some sleep after a long but Productive month for us. I bet now obviously kris bryant was one of the big gets for any team. This trade deadline. You know him well Coming from the cubs organization yourself. How far do you go back with chris. And what was this process lake for you because you do have an established. Good relationship with him. I i go back since the i go back to. The beginning of chris's pro-career i Was in the draft room in two thousand thirteen when we drafted him in the first round After he had one college player of the year and then he proceeded to win minor league player of the year rookie of the year. Mvp and the world series. I gotta front row seat to all of it. So i've not chris for a long time. I've really admired him as a player on the field and as a teammate off the field for a long time and we're thrilled to make a giant and it was really fun to watch him go deep in a second ever at bad as giant on sunday. How would you describe his personality. Obviously we know. He's a good teammate. On the reports of on him as a clubhouse guy or fantastic you mentioned that but What else would you say about him. Just as as a guy. I think chris is additive any clubhouse He brings great energy every day. He he loves to play the game. he really cares about his teammates. And i think one thing that giants fan saw right away after we acquired him is how selfless he is. You know the the message he delivered to us as soon as we got him on the phone after we traded forum was. I don't care where you in the lineup. I don't care where you blame me on the field. I just wanna win. And i'm really excited to be a giant and i think that speaks volumes about what what kris bryant is baseball player. Entertainment how much you feel like maybe your relationships with that people in the chicago office help to further this deal with was that a factor at obviously are far hunt obviously knows everybody in baseball. Well too but but You work there for a long time and came up through that that organization I'm i'm not sure you know. Get the inside. Track to a player if you have worked with. Gm or president before But i think the tone and the openness of the negotiations change when you know that there is trust on both sides. And so. When i was talking to jed hoyer about potentially acquiring chris I think we're pretty blunt with each other I think we knew that we could read each other pretty well and and i think that openness helped us be more efficient in our talks ultimately lay the groundwork for us to be able to acquire chris. And we'll end. What was your call with chris. Like when the trade was. I made especially you know. Having having such a good relationship with him it was a it was a pretty fun. Call i I called him when he was in washington and he was jumping through the phone. So excited niente he. He told me that he had had some conversations with our all-stars colorado about his fondness for for this organization. And he thought you know somehow he was gonna end up a giant Wasn't clear if it was at the trade deadline or or in the future but I had never had a call like that with a player that we acquired Before i think my past relationships with chris made it even more fun in an open call But it it certainly one that that i'm going to remember and it was even more fun to see him when he walked into the clubhouse on sunday. Yeah i mean it looked to me like he got the call while he was in the dugout. Was that you when we've kind of seen that footage of him on the phone in the dugout and then kinda going back into the clubhouse afterwards i think so you have to ask him he He told me he was up on the phone. When i dot com. It looked like these tearing up in the in the video. So i i don't know But either way it was really fun to be able to see that video and again even more fun when we saw him in the black sunday. Now you mentioned Clubhouse fit in the selflessness you guys also reacquired tony watson with the trade with the angels and and that was mentioned a lot with the in the aftermath of that trade to making sure guys are right fit. How do you do that. I mean obviously these are guys that that you know bryant. Well everyone here knows tony watson so well But just in general as you were looking at the deadline. How do you kind of you know. Bet guys from that angle. I think that's a great question. I know four hundred. I were outspoken about the value. We place on culture in chemistry in the clubhouse Observing the way these guys fed off of each other every night for the first four months reminded us to to be careful heading into the deadline. It reminded us to target players who will enhance our clubhouse dynamic not disrupt it that's one of the reasons why we focused on blair's we know at the deadline. You know chris who i know from my time in chicago and wadi who we both know well from last year Stuck out as excellent fits for us on and off the field. It's always easier to vet makeup and Clubhouse presence with guys you know and so i think we felt more comfortable with those types of personalities. But that didn't deter us from digging on on other players who didn't know as well so You're talking to pass teammates talking to pass coaches and leveraging the vast networks that four hundred half but also that has to to make sure that we got a well rounded view of that person on and off the field before we considered acquiring him. There was a lot of talk before the deadline about you guys. And the starting pitching market. How did you guys find that market as you're looking at potentially adding another starter. Which obviously you guys chose not to do that. Took up a lot of conversations in the room for us. And i think i have a few thoughts on on our rotation.
